The Best Political Cartoons About King Obama’s Amnesty
Obama admitted several times that executive amnesty is unconstitutional and lawless
Here are the best political cartoons that sum up King Obama’s amnesty for
millions of illegals and Obama’s own statements admitting that executive
amnesty is unconstitutional and lawless.
Nov. 25, 2013, Betty Ann Ong Chinese Recreation Center, San Francisco, Cali.:
Now, what you need to know, when I’m speaking as President of the United
States and I come to this community, is that if, in fact, I could solve
all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.
But we’re also a nation of laws. That’s part of our tradition. And so
the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something
by violating our laws. And what I’m proposing is the harder path, which
is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you
want to achieve. But it won’t be as easy as just shouting. It requires
us lobbying and getting it done.
July 25, 2011, President Obama’s speech to La Raza:
Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my
own. And believe me, right now dealing with Congress — believe me —
believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I
promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how — that’s
not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions.
That’s not how our Constitution is written.
March 28, 2011, Univision interview:
With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through
executive order, that’s just not the case…. There are enough laws on the
books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to
enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive
order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my
appropriate role as president.
Sept. 28, 2011, Hispanic Roundtable at the White House:
I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change
the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can
administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the
books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been a great
disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting
comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that
somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true….
We live in a democracy. You have to pass bills through the legislature,
and then I can sign it.
