Obama Circumvents Congress… Again

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin (D) and Representative Luis Guttierrez (D) have joined forces in a YouTube video (see below)  to provide illegal immigrants with information on how to avoid deportation.  Senator Durbin is the author of The Dream Act, which has been killed in Congress.

So with The Dream Act dead in Congress, what has President Obama done in order to get his agenda in place?  He has decided to circumvent Congress.  According to Reuters news service, the President’s plan is as follows:

Under Obama’s plan, those who qualify would be allowed to live and work in the United States for two years and could be eligible for extensions, the Obama administration said.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who made the initial announcement of Obama’s order on Friday, said that illegal immigrants up to 30 years old who came to the United States as children and do not pose a risk to national security would be eligible to stay in the country and allowed to apply for work permits.

To avoid deportation under Obama’s plan, a person must have come to the United States under the age of 16 and have resided in the country for at least five years.

They must be in school or have graduated from high school or be honorably discharged from the U.S. military. They also must not have been convicted of any felony or significant misdemeanor offenses.

Their “important message” revolves around President Obama’s decision to halt deportation for 2 years for young immigrants who meet certain qualifications.  Take a listen:
