A White House official comments on Obama’s de facto amnesty for young illegal immigrants as reported by Politico.
“We work to achieve our policy goals in the most effective and appropriate way possible,” the official said. “Often times Congress has blocked efforts …… and we look to pursue other appropriate means of achieving our policy goals. Sometimes this makes for less than ideal policy situations – such as the action we took on immigration – but the president isn’t going to be stonewalled by [the law], he will pursue whatever means available to do business on behalf of American people.”
In the interest of clarity I have changed one word in the White House official’s statement. The statement actually made was the President will not be “stonewalled by politics”. But the context is an announcement by the administration that certain specified laws will no longer be enforced, Congress be damned. What other law might the President next declare null and void, voter fraud?
