Schumer

Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer. The face of Leftist arrogance.

 
Clearly violating the separation of powers between the governmental branches, Democrat lawmakers have instructed Speaker of the House John Boehner to pass immigration reform before August, but have also issued a looming ultimatum of dubious legality; Boehner is to pass the legislation or else President Obama will act unilaterally. Tyranney Alert

Furthermore, the Democrats have maintained that they will not accept incremental reforms, but are demanding a thorough immigration reform package by August… or else.

“Here is the bottom line,” Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer said. “They have about a six-week window, from June 10 after the last Republican primary till the August recess. If they don’t pass immigration reform then, the president will have no choice but to act on his own.” 

“I don’t know about you, but I do not respond well when being threatened. Why would Speaker of the House John Boehner accept it? The utter arrogance that the Left now have. They no longer are hiding their tyrannical foundations. Now it’s no longer any effort to find points of agreement. Now it is tyrannical threats and ultimatums.” JB

Resist AmnestyOf course, the assertion that the president would have “no choice but to act on his own” is a little misleading. For example, the president could accept that the sole purpose of the legislative body is not to advance his legislative agenda and could respect the boundaries of his office.
“We are not going to go along with minor fixes that fail to address the huge systematic problems of our immigration system today,” Schumer continued.
While Democrats point to Republicans as the cause of delay on immigration reform, Speaker Boehner has continually reiterated a point that appears obvious to conservatives: President Obama simply cannot be trusted to enforce our laws. Any legislation passed that includes an ounce of enforcement mandates would almost certainly be selectively enforced at a time when the Obama Administration has become increasingly selective with what laws they will, or will not, enforce.

In a Republic such as ours, it is wholly inappropriate to issue ultimatums that promise unilateral action on the part of the president when the legislative body does not act in accordance with his wishes.

It seems Democrats will have a tough time convincing Republicans that President Obama respects the rule of law when his alternative to GOP resistance is unilateral tyranny.
