Don’t be diverted by president’s rhetoric, a reporter’s trespass on the rules, or the president’s walk-away without answering questions.
What matters here is President Obama’s enormous grab of power, and it is an enormous grab of power.
If the president can do this vis-a-vis this category of immigrants he can do it vis-a-vis any category of immigrants.
And if he can do it vis-a-vis immigration law, he can do it vis-a-vis other laws, whenever hus standard of “justice” is satisfied.
The president rightly said last year he could not do this. Now, because his political fortunes are falling fast, he grabs for a power no other president in U.S. history has ever asserted.
That’s the story. And most of MSM will miss it because one reporter shouted a question and a flailing president pouted.
One more question: Has the president added to the marginal incentive for a parent to take minor children across the border regardless of the dangers involved in the crossing?
