Obama ‘Signals’ End Of Deportation Of Illegals

From a cheering Politico:

Obama calls for review of deportations

By Seung Min Kim and Reid J. Epstein | March 13, 2014

President Barack Obama finally bowed to pressure from immigration rights activists and signaled on Thursday that he may change his deportation policy.

The ‘pressure’ being the usual suspects, including the usual news media. But how come Obama never bows to the will of the American people? If he did, he wouldn’t be trying to ram through an agenda that is wildly unpopular in every poll.

The president changed course after months of claiming there was nothing his White House could do to stem the flow of deportations of undocumented immigrants.

Remember all the times has Obama told Hispanics he couldn’t stop deportations on his own because he isn’t a king? Well, it turns out Obama is a king, or at least he is a dictator, after all.

Apparently, selective enforcement of the Laws Of The Land — is now the Law Of The Land.

Obama announced in a meeting readout that he has requested a review of his administration’s enforcement policies for immigration laws to see if that enforcement can be done “more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said Thursday…

Thanks to Obama’s previous (illegal) executive orders, we are practically only deporting felons who have numerous serious convictions. But Obama is now going to put an end even those deportations. For ‘humanitarian reasons,’ of course.

The announcement… came as Hispanic lawmakers were weighing a formal statement demanding Obama act on his own.

Apparently, they love dictators. They want Obama to re-write or ignore the very laws that Congress wrote.

The White House made the announcement after Obama met for more than an hour Thursday evening with three leading members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus amid a furor in the Latino and immigration-rights community over the number of deportations of undocumented immigrants during his administration…

Why don’t we ever hear about the furor of American citizens, who are tired of paying for millions upon millions of illegal aliens?

“The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system,” the White House said in a readout of the meeting…

“It is clear that the pleas from the community got through to the President,” Gutierrez said in a later statement. “The CHC will work with him to keep families together. The President clearly expressed the heartbreak he feels because of the devastating effect that deportations have on families.” …

And never mind that these families would not have been separated in the first place if everyone had stayed in their native countries. And never mind that there is nothing stopping them from all going home together.

The White House has scheduled a meeting Friday afternoon with Obama for a half-dozen top immigration activists, many of whom have demanded the president do something on immigration…

So when will Obama meet with the activists who want to secure the border?

The White House meeting came as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which has played a key role on setting immigration policy for House Democrats, has been wrestling with a resolution aimed at Obama on deportations that would take a sharp line against the administration…

[A]dvocates were hopeful that Obama will issue a directive similar to one he announced in spring 2012, which deferred deportations for hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children.

The Hispanic Caucus has yet to formalize the resolution, but an earlier draft obtained by POLITICO calls on Obama to use “all legal means” to suspend, delay or stop deportations of immigrants if the removal would “have an adverse impact on the United States.” …

In other words, Obama is going to end all deportations via executive order. With his phone and his pen.

Welcome to the third world.
