Word has been circulating of late that the current administration is considering another large executive order. We on the right have been complaining (as I agree we should) about the expansive interpretation of executive authority our current president has employed. This expansive interpretation of executive authority has manifested itself most clearly in the recent swath of executive orders issued from the WH. Many of these have revolved around the lurching implementation of the ACA, but others cater to other of the lefts policy preferences. Now deciding to bypass congress to implement ones agenda is always going to perturb that august assembly. But so far, the moves have been incremental enough that all out partisan war has been avoided. Surely we have a cold war of legislative intransigence, but I find that much preferable to doing too much to quickly.
This new executive order being considered, and thanks to Rep. Luis Gutiérrez of Ill. for letting us in on the plan, is to legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrants. (Gutiérrez: ‘I Think We Can Get 3 or 4, Maybe Even 5 Million People’ Amnesty via Executive Action) The repercussions of such an action would shake the foundation of our Republic to its very roots.
I have my own opinions on the subject, but before engaging in them I was curious to see what you people think?
