Regarding President Obama’s decision to unilaterally enact parts of the so-called DREAM Act by executive order, Vision America Action President Dr. Rick Scarborough recalled: “At a town hall meeting last March, the president said: ‘With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportation through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed…we’ve got three branches of government.’ But Mr. Obama increasingly acts if there was just one branch.”

The Vision America President said everything Obama has told us about his latest desperate, election-year, move, is false.

“He says it’s not an amnesty. As a former law professor, the president knows very well that when you say you won’t prosecute a group of law-breakers, that’s an amnesty,” Scarborough explained.

“Supposedly, the amnesty won’t apply to those with criminal records. How do we know that? The fact that their name won’t turn up in a background check means nothing, as illegals often use assumed identities,” Scarborough noted.

The president has also told us his amnesty-that-isn’t-an-amnesty will apply to “only 800,000.” Experts say it’s more like 1.4 million. The amnesty is being offered to anyone with a high school diploma or GED, which are easily forged.

Scarborough charged: “With a stroke of his pen, the president has granted work permits to up to 1.4 million illegal aliens and put them on the path to citizenship.”

“But this is just the latest outrage from an administration which increasingly acts like a regime, “Scarborough said. “After his party lost control of the House in 2010, Mr. Obama decided that, whenever he thought he could get away with it, he would rule by executive order in violation of the Constitution.”

Scarborough added: “Congress refused to pass this latest amnesty. The American people have repeatedly said they don’t want it. But the president did it anyway – as an election year bribe to his radical friends in groups like the National Council of La Raza.”

“As we approach November 4, voters must decide whether they want to be governed by decree, or return to democracy.”

Vision America Action’s mission is to inform, encourage and mobilize pastors and their congregations to be proactive in restoring Judeo-Christian values to the moral and civic framework in their communities, states, and our nation.
