The Obama administration issued a new policy Friday that says immigration agents should try not to arrest and deport illegal immigrant parents of minor children. The move adds to the categories of people the administration is trying not to deport.
This is all part of a concerted campaign, directed from Washington and being conducted across the country. Last week, Legal Insurrection reported on the seemingly coincidental appearance at Congressional Town Hall meetings held throughout our country this summer, where a youngster would approach the microphone and ask her congressman, “why do you want to deport my Daddy?” What seemed at first to be an honest question asked by a worried youngster, Professor Jacobson reports, was actually a political ploy, repeated at dozens of such events, all videoed by Democrat operatives.
So Obama is responding to “pressure” that he himself deliberately created. And he is ordering his minions to violate the law of the land. Obama, you may remember, twice swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States. He broke that oath as the words left his lips.
