Ted Cruz: Obama Admin. “Counterfeiting Immigration Documents” [+video]

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, believes that the Obama administration is “counterfeiting immigration documents” under the president’s immigration plan.

Speaking to Fox News following a federal judge’s decision to temporarily halt President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, the potential Republican presidential contender said the commander in chief is ignoring federal law.

“One of the things it points out is the president has claimed, rather absurdly, that the basis of his authority is ‘prosecutorial discretion.’ That he’s simply choosing not to prosecute 4.5 million people here illegally,” Cruz told Fox News. “But what the district court concluded, quite rightly, is they’re doing far more than that. The administration is printing work authorizations. It is affirmatively acting in contravention of federal law. Basically, what its doing is counterfeiting immigration documents, because the work authorizations its printing are directly contrary to the text of federal law. It is dangerous when the president ignores federal law” . . .

“It’s interesting, (Obama) said the law is on his side. There’s at least one person who calls himself a legal scholar who disagrees, and his name is Barack Obama,” Cruz said. “Twenty-two times President Obama has admitted he doesn’t have the authority to issue unilateral amnesty. Twenty-two times he says the constitution doesn’t allow it. He said, ‘This is not a monarchy.’ That’s his quote. And then after the last election, he said never mind and issued it anyway.” (Read more from this story about the Obama Admin. Counterfeiting Immigration Documents HERE)

    The Obama administration and specifically Obama and Holder are in violation of their oath of office, The Constitution and US law!!!!

    ****

    Illegal alien laws not enforced

    The dumping of illegal aliens or facilitating the dumping of
    illegal aliens in US cities is aiding and abetting those who have broken our laws and those who refuse to enforce them. Local law enforcement should join with citizen protesters to prevent this further violation of law. Failure to support the below as contained in The US Constitution and US Code is a violation of the law enforcement oath of office.

    *****

    The following is the oath of office for the president of the
    United States: “I do solemnly swear [or affirm] that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    All law enforcement and elected officials are required to
    take a similar oath to protect, defend and preserve our Constitution and faithfully execute our laws.

    Article 4 section 4 of the Constitution begins as follows: “The United
    States shall GUARANTEE (my caps) to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion.” (The Obama administration has refused to do this)

    A republic defined:

    Noun 1. A state in which the supreme power rests in the body
    of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.

    “Guarantee” is a legal term more comprehensive and of higher
    import than either warranty or “security”. It most commonly
    designates a private transaction by means of which one person, to obtain some trust, confidence or credit for another, engages to be answerable for him. It may also designate a treaty through which claims, rights or possessions are secured.

    Title 8 United States Code 1103(a) (5) states the following: “The
    Attorney General shall have the power and the DUTY (my caps) to control and guard the boundaries and borders of states against the illegal entry of aliens.” (The Obama administration has refused to do this)

    Duty:

    A legal obligation that entails mandatory conduct or
    performance.

    Title 8 USC 1103 (a) (10) states the following: “In the event the
    Attorney General determines that an actual or imminent influx arriving off the coast of the United States, or near a land border, presents urgent circumstances requiring immediate
    Federal response”—he can authorize state and local agencies
    to assist in carrying out his duties to protect our borders. State and
    local agencies consist of local police, sheriff departments, and the
    National Guard. (The Obama administration has refused to do this)

    Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and
    Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

    A person (including a group of persons, business,
    organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:

    * assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally
    in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or

    * encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring
    him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or

    * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal
    convictions.

    The Obama administration knows that In 2002, Congress tasked
    ICE with creating an “Alternatives to Detention Program”, which
    allows aliens “who present a low risk of flight, and who pose no danger to the community” to be released without detention as they await deportation proceedings. They are supposed to stay in contact but this administration knows the most just disappear. In addition they “released” 68,000 detained criminals into the US in violation of the “no danger to the community” requirement.

    It seems to me that the president, the secretary of Homeland
    Security, and the attorney general of the United States have not just an obligation but a sworn constitutional duty to control our national borders against invasion by illegal aliens and also to protect the individual states against invasion by this same group.

    If what is happening along our southern border is not an
    invasion, many people in this country have an entirely different belief of what the term means than do our leaders. The above indicated people seem to have purposely turned a blind eye to this problem for many years and should be forced to fulfill their sworn duties.

    Some will say that the definition of invasion applies only
    to military actions. My answer to them is the exact wording in Title 8 USC 8 (a) (5) above: “Guard the boundaries and borders of states against the illegal entry of aliens.” (The Obama administration has refused to do this)
