News Release: Obama Order Unlawful

OBAMA DYNAMITES RULE OF LAW WITH ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY

ATLANTA– Americans for Immigration Control today condemns President Barack Obama’s executive order giving amnesty to almost one million illegal aliens, the children of illegal parents, and giving them work permits.

“The president’s arbitrary order violates the U.S. Constitution by usurping the congressional authority of the Congress to either grant, or not grant, amnesty to those who are in violation of our nation’s laws,” AIC national spokesman Phil Kent said. “This type of policy will act as a magnet that will further foster illegal immigration, especially the smuggling in of children. The next demand from the open borders lobby, now that these people have legal status, will be demands to give them citizenship and voting rights.”

“Furthermore, how can the president justify allowing these illegal immigrants to work in the United States when millions of American remain unemployed or who have stopped looking for work?” Kent said. “Obama has put partisan politics and illegal immigrants ahead of the rule of law and the American people.”
