The US Constitution Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 4, gives Congress the power to “To establish a uniform rule of naturalization…”. The President does not have the right to change or nullify our laws. His primary job is to enforce the law of the land – not just the ones he likes. The President simply refuses enforce it. America has always welcomed immigrants and has generous policies allowing over a million people to study or work here legally.
If President Obama wants to change our immigration laws, he should make his case to Congress, have them debate it and revise our current system. Until then, he is obligated to enforce our borders. He cannot, by executive order, award citizenship to illegals aliens. He can delay deportation and even allow them to remain here temporarily, but if the Senate changes hands, Congress will have an opportunity to reverse his decision.
… Mr. Zuckerberg has been very busy recently. One of his fellow billionaires, Mr. Carlos Slim — maybe the world’s richest man — invited Mr. Zuckerberg down to Mexico City to give a speech. What did Mr. Zuckerberg promote in his speech? Well, this is a report of it.
I guess I will first note that young Mr. Zuckerberg maybe doesn’t know there is a deep American tradition — a tradition in most developed nations — that you don’t go to a foreign capital to criticize your own government. I suppose he doesn’t know about that. They probably didn’t teach him about that when he was at one of the elite schools he attended.
