New data posted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, posted by the California attorney general’s office, confirms that 373,610 applications for Obama’s illegal amnesty were renewed between January 10, 2018, and March 31, 2019. Why January 10? January 9, 2018, was the date a single California judge, William Alsup of the Northern District of California, issued an unprecedented injunction on Trump’s order merely countermanding Obama’s illegal amnesty, thereby forcing the president to violate numerous immigration laws.
Now, as a result of the notion that any judge has that kind of power, over 373,000 people who came here illegally have access to Social Security cards, refundable tax credits, and a wealth of state benefits in certain states. Plus, 49,510 additional applications are still pending. Just 2,640 applications, or .007 percent, have been denied.
There are no words in the English language to describe the unprecedented power grab that the Article II and Article III branches of government are perpetrating on the duly passed statutes signed into law. No other power grab in American history ever involved the unelected branches of government handing out Social Security cards and billions in refundable credits to those who, pursuant to law, are not allowed to be here.
Yet somehow, none of the individuals in Congress who were so “concerned” about defending Article I power against the president’s order to protect sovereignty are demanding that Trump follow the law on Obama’s amnesty. Why is there no resolution of disapproval from these Republicans (and Democrats) who supposedly want to protect the prerogatives of Article I powers? If they want to check Trump’s power, they should demand that he end this amnesty. It has never been passed into law. Even if one believes in some form of this, it is inexcusable to let an administratively concocted “law” continue.
