It's long past time to impose some restraint

President Obama is apparently going to unilaterally decide (despite repeatedly stating in public that he has absolutely no authority to do so) to allow as many as 5 MILLION illegal immigrants who snuck into the country or overstayed their visas to stay indefinitely with work authorization.  His apparent main excuse this time - anchor babies:

"One option would allow immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens to apply for temporary legal status which would let them work legally in the U.S. Because children born in the country automatically receive U.S. citizenship, that option could affect about 5 million people, researchers estimate.
A second option would be to allow temporary legal status for the parents of young people already granted deportation deferrals by the Obama administration. That would affect a smaller, but still sizable, number of people."

This course of action will, of course, only encourage untold thousands of people in Mexico and Central America to redouble their efforts to get here by any means necessary in order to partake in this latest amnesty, whether they qualify for it or not.  We've already seen what's happened in the last two years just from the Lightbringer's unlawful implementation of the DACA program.

It's time to once again melt down Congress's phone lines and remind them of their duty to impose "checks and balances", especially on a rogue administration that likes to make up its own laws on such issues as health care, immigration and gun control.
