    The US Constitution says in Article 1, Section 8, that it is Congress' responsibility to establish law on Naturalization. I have read Article 2, but can't seem to find justification for a president to circumvent the laws established by Congress. And I can't seem to find the part of the current law that gives the president authority to establish this program.

    The only conclusion one can come to is that President Obama has violated the Constitutions by giving rights to illegal aliens. While he may not like the current law, he is required to uphold and enforce it. But then he seems to ignore the Constitution, like appointing members to the NLRB board without getting Senatorial approval, as required by the Constitution. Those appointments were found to be in violation of the Constitution by the DC Circuit Court.

    Didn't he take an oath to uphold the Constitution? It doesn't seem to mean anything to him, even though Article 2 says the president will take care to make sure the laws of the country are faithfully executed. But you can't blame just President Obama, the national and local media seem to approve his Constitutional violations.

    Well, when the president makes these sweeping changes by fiat IN DIRECT CONFLICT TO THE LAW what do you expect?
    He's left the states to wonder "Do I obey the law of the land or an executive order made for political gain?"
    In case you hadn't noticed, the United States isn't ruled by a king.

    If you don't put it away, you must not want it.
