Allen West gives an objective assessment of the unconstitutional hypocrisy that is DACA 

Illegal immigration received a boost and a reward system when former President Barack Obama established the DACA program in 2012. The Deferred Action for Child Arrivals allowed minors to get a pass on immigration laws and avoid deportation. Unfortuantely, Congress and the Judiciary f=did nothing in this Presidential userpation of power. Most legal analysis proves just how unconstitutional that the act actually is. Read it all here.

As Written By Allen B. West:

Everyone’s awaiting President Trump’s decision on the Obama program called DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The decision is expected as early as today.

It was a program established by Barack Obama in June 2012 allowing illegal immigrants who entered the United States as minors to receive renewable, two-year deferments from deportation as well as work permits.

First, we need to understand that the pertinent word is illegal. These are children born in the United States of illegal immigrant parents who had violated and disregarded the sovereign laws of this nation. If we’re to continue as a constitutional republic, and not a constitutional monarchy, we must adhere to, and preserve our rule of law.

DACA is unconstitutional in every way. The Constitution states it clearly in Article I, Section 8, Clause 4, “To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization.” Article I denotes the enumerated powers of the legislative branch — the the House and Senate, or Congress. Article II of the Constitution denotes the enumerated powers of the executive branch.

A simple perusal  will help the reader realize that we’re to be governed by the rule of law, not ruled by edict from an executive. There are only four sections under Article II of the Constitution, the final section establishing the grounds for removal of the executive, the president.

If we wish to have a purely constitutional discussion about DACA, it’s obvious President Barack Obama exceeded his enumerated powers and established an unconstitutional policy. Now, the question is: Do we want to be ruled by edict based upon the ideological agenda of a ruler? If so, then let’s go right ahead and continue on with DACA.

But the progressive socialist Left then loses any grounds to complain about unconstitutional actions. They can’t accomplish their goal of fundamentally transforming America outside the bounds of our rule of law.

It’s not up to the president — any president — to decide that he or she wants to do something without the legislative branch; in essence, that’s taking action without the consent of the governed. The American people elect representatives to be their voice, so any disregard of the legislative branch is a dismissal and disregard of the American people.

Furthermore, since this action by President Barack Obama was taken by executive fiat, then it’s no longer binding upon his departure — just as with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Iranian nuclear deal, and, as we saw,  the Paris Climate Change Accord.

The Left in America can get as mad, angry, hate-filled and emotional as they want. Either they support the rule of law or they don’t. Bottom line, the progressive, socialist Left and the liberal progressive media needs to shut up, because they don’t have a constitutional reason for complaint.

And if we’re now a country governed by feel-good emotions, then let’s admit that; let’s have an official burning of the Constitution and allow a fundamental transformation of our republic.

DACA is nothing more than a feel-good, ideological political tool based on identity politics. If anything, it advances the notion, which the Left loves, that there are those above the rule of law. Just look at sanctuary cities, counties and states — the Left’s agenda is apparently superior to our rule of law.

The hypocrisy of DACA is blatant. Who decides what constitutes being a “dreamer”? Yes, that sounds so nice, and again, it tugs at hearts. But I seem to recall in April 2009 that the same Barack Obama behind DACA ended the D.C. school voucher program for deserving young, black, minority kids … and not a peep came from the progressive socialist Left and the liberal progressive media.

The deduction is simple: The Left chooses based on their politicized agenda. Funny, DACA was enacted in 2012, a presidential election year … that should tell …….
