The “executive order” issued by US President Barack Obama to “legalize” five million or more Third World illegal invaders of America is not only legally dubious, but is a guaranteed economic, social, and racial disaster for a nation already crippled with a combined unemployment rate of over 18 million.
Contrary to popular belief, there is in fact no US constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders. The term “executive power” Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution, refers to the title of President as the executive. He is instructed therein by the declaration “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” made in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5, or he faces impeachment.
Most executive orders use these Constitutional provisions as the authorization allowing for their issuance to be justified as part of the President’s sworn duties, with the supposed intent being to help direct officers of the US Executive carry out their delegated duties as well as the normal operations of the federal government: the consequence of failing to comply possibly being the removal from office.
An executive order of the President must find support in the Constitution, either in a clause granting the President specific power, or by a delegation of power by Congress to the President.
The new amnesty is clearly not founded in any constitutional clause and, it can be strongly argued, is directly contradictory to the expressed will of the American people, as laid out in the recent Congressional elections which endorsed the Republican Party, ostensibly the political opponents of the Obama administration.
Even former Florida Governor Jeb Bush—himself married to a former illegal invader from Mexico—called Obama’s action “ill-advised” and said it “undermines all efforts to forge a permanent solution to this crisis” that should come from Congress.
“President Obama has once again put divisive and manipulative politics before the sober leadership and sound laws required of an exceptional nation,” Bush said in a statement. “It is time for Republican leaders in Congress to act. We must demonstrate to Americans we are the party that will tackle serious challenges and build broad-based consensus to achieve meaningful reforms for our citizens and our future.”
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said he “will not sit idly by and let the President bypass Congress and our Constitution.”
“President Obama is not above the law and has no right to issue executive amnesty. His actions blatantly ignore the Separations of Powers and the principles our country was founded on. The President has said 22 times previously that he does not have the power to legislate on immigration,” Paul said in a statement.
Senator Ted Cruz said in a statement that Obama’s “actions are not only unconstitutional and in defiance of the American people who said they did not want amnesty in the 2014 elections, but they are also unfair to every immigrant who has come to our nation legally.”
Texas governor Rick Perry said in a statement that “the president’s decision tonight will lead to more illegal immigration, not less. It is time for the president and Congress to secure our border, followed by meaningful reforms. There is no more time for political grandstanding.”
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, the second-place finisher in the 2012 battle for the GOP presidential bid and a potential 2016 contender, called the executive order “just another in a long line of power-grabs by this administration. Despite saying as recently as one year ago that he was not the ’emperor’ of the United States, this President simply does not believe that the Executive is a co-equal branch of government.”
Meanwhile, the most recent unemployment figures from the US Department of Labor show that the Obama amnesty is going to strike a grievous blow to the already crippled American labor market.
According to the official latest statistics, the number of “Real Unemployed Persons” in the US stands at 18.6 million.
However, in addition to the 18.6 million Real Unemployed Persons at September 30, there are another 3.8 million persons who, while also saying they want jobs, have not looked for work in the past twelve months. Because they haven’t looked, these persons are not included among the marginally attached workers; if included, then September’s Real Unemployment Rate of 11.8% increases to 13.8%.
Furthermore, these figures do not include the “underemployment” rate—officially defined as those who have taken employment such as a part-time job despite needing full-time employment to make ends meet, and overqualification, where the employee has education, skills of experience way beyond the requirements of the job they hold.
According to the US Bureau of Labor, at least thirteen percent of the entire US labor force falls into this underemployment category—the same figure as the unemployment rate.
Finally, the mass invasion and permanent settlement of untold millions more nonwhites cements the already declining proportion of the whites among the American population. According to the most recent US Census Bureau figures, the “white” population of America has already dropped to 62 percent of the total.
This figure is however already an overestimate, as the Federal government’s official definition of “white” is a “person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.”
Given this fact, and the reality that all racial classifications in the US are self-chosen, it is clear that the actual percentage of European-origin people in America is well below even the official 62 percent, and is probably closer to the 50 percent level.
It should however always be borne in mind that in real terms, the number of whites in America is not decreasing, but only getting smaller as a percentage of the population. This may in itself offer political opportunities outside of the traditional political avenues, particularly in regard to the creation of autonomous communities and the potential fragmentation of the country into ethnostates.
