Ira Mehlman Op-Ed: Why President Obama's Amnesty Decree is Wrong and Dangerous
"The President's decision to grant "deferred action" to these illegal aliens is a political move designed to energize his political base in advance of the November elections. Unfortunately, political pandering is the least egregious thing about the policy the President is implementing. Far more serious is the damage that President Obama's new policy is inflicting on our constitutional system of government and on the interests of the American people," says Ira Mehlman in a Townhall.com op-ed.
"In order to carry out his amnesty plan, President Obama is nullifying numerous laws made by Congress and, by executive fiat, is implementing legislation, known as the DREAM Act, that Congress has repeatedly rejected."
