Did not de facto President Barack Obama tell the country last Thursday (20 November) he was taking executive action to let five million illegal aliens stay in-country? Executive action usually means executive order. So where can we find the executive order to let those people stay? And to issue them green cards and work permits?
Executive order: nowhere to be seen!
Dr. Orly Taitz has troubled Obama’s peace like a gadfly since he came into office. Last night (22 November) she released the result of some obvious research. She looked for the executive order to let those illegal aliens stay. And found no such executive order!
She describes her research:
On 11.20.2014 Barack Obama announced an executive order to grant 28 month reprieve from deportation for tech graduates and a bigger executive order to stop deportation of some 5 million illegals with anchor babies (children of illegal aliens born in the US). However, extensive research by Dr. Orly Taitz, ESQ showed that there is no such executive order in Federal register, on White House.gov or anywhere else for that matter.
She speaks correctly! One can find executive orders at WhiteHouse.gov and at the Federal Register. Either place lists no executive order since 17 October 2014. On that date Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13681: “Improving the security of consumer financial transactions.”
Dr. Taitz goes on:
Some Obama supporters pointed to a memo, sent to DHS on 11.21.2014 by Obama, however the memo is absolutely empty, it contains nothing but general diatribe and gibberish, no specifics and just general recommendations, which, of course, fall far short from a specific executive order upon which these millions of illegals should be getting work permits.
The Washington Post described a policy by the Department of Homeland Security, that the border-control agencies cannot deport drunk drivers and other low-level criminals because it lacks the resources. Newsmax carried the link to that memo. But the memo did not go out from The White House. It went out from SecHomeSec Jeh Johnson (sic). Johnson spoke of “prosecutorial discretion.” He said that discretion should extend to every stage of a case, from deciding to pursue it to seeking to deport someone.
Dr. Taitz obviously had a different memo in mind. Sadly, she gave no link to it. But The Christian Science Monitor mentioned a memo from the Justice Department. That memo says Barack Obama has no authority to do what he said he would do.
Did Obama issue an executive order or didn’t he?
No. Barack Obama issued no executive order. Jeh Johnson wrote in generalities about “prosecutorial discretion.” That is all.
So why did Obama make that speech? For one of two reasons:
- Obama sought to placate his base and somehow goad the Republican caucus into drawing up Articles of Impeachment. (When the Senate couldn’t possibly muster two-thirds to convict.)
- Obama said what he would do, but cagily avoided putting it in writing.
In doing No. 2 above, Obama behaves like a con artist. Litigating against him will be difficult. Why? No evidence. At least, none in writing. That speech he made? Hearsay. And not a legal foundation.
Dr. Taitz flatly said Obama was pulling “another hoax.” The only question is, whom on.
