No Mention Of Amnesty In GOP List Of Obama Overreach

From Breitbart:

John Boehner Does Not Mention Immigration in Op-Ed on Obama Lawsuit

By Matthew Boyle | July 28, 2014

President Obama is practically shouting from the rooftops that he’s about to grant a new unilateral amnesty to as many as six million illegal aliens, but the topic of immigration does not come up in a new op-ed from Speaker John Boehner explaining his lawsuit against Obama for lawlessness.

In the op-ed, Boehner explains why he chose to focus the lawsuit only on Obamacare. “On the advice of legal experts, the House action will focus on his decision to extend–twice–the deadline to institute the employer mandate in his healthcare law,” Boehner wrote. “We believe this targeted lawsuit offers the best chance of success.”

In the op-ed, Boehner mentioned other issues in which he thinks Obama has acted outside the bounds of the law–but he ignored immigration, and specifically the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“I believe the President’s actions in a number of areas–including job-destroying energy regulations, releasing the ‘Taliban 5’ from Guantanamo without notice and waiving the work requirements in welfare–exceed his constitutional authority,” Boehner wrote.

In an earlier memo outlining his case that Obama has clearly exceeded his legal authority under the Constitution, Boehner listed areas of concern, including “health care and energy to foreign policy and education”–but not immigration.

So the Republican leadership considers energy regulations to be a more dangerous overreach of Presidential powers than giving amnesty to another 5 million illegal aliens?

Boehner had previously said he was considering including immigration in the forthcoming lawsuit against Obama’s executive actions, but the resolution approving the lawsuit ultimately focused only on Obamacare.

Maybe we have grown too cynical, but all of this sure supports the suspicion that Mr. Boehner and the rest of the Republican leadership don’t have a problem with Obama’s executive orders granting amnesty to illegal aliens.

Maybe the GOP leaders think Hispanics will remember op-eds like Boehner’s and vote Republican in the future. — Even though the Hispanic vote for Republicans actually went down after three million illegal aliens were given amnesty in 1986 by a Republican President.
