In 2014 President Obama had an executive to legalize millions of illegal immigrants. The President used executive powers to fix an immigration problem that Congress couldn’t or wouldn’t take care of. When President Obama did this Democrats went on TV and the internet to defend him. They forget that their comments are saved in the archives of the internet forever and we can easily replay to show how hypocritical they can be. When Obama used executive power for immigration he was doing what he had to. When President Trump does it Democrats vow to seek revenge.
Let’s start with former Presidential advisor Valerie Jarrett who says President Obama “is looking at everything he can do within his authority, and there are certainly limits to his authority, to try and fix our broken immigration system. “
Valerie was not alone. Rep. Juaquin Castro “So the president said that this is what he intended to do. It’s within his legal authority. He’s taking action because congress refuses to take action.”
Former President Jimmy Carter “think he has tried every possible way to get congress to pass a reasonable bill. the senate on a bipartisan basis they overwhelmingly supported the senate version.”
Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson “The executive actions on November 20 are improvements to a broken immigration system. In a comprehensive way.”
and last but not least Sen. Bob Menendez “Oh, absolutely. Look, eleven presidents — going back to President Eisenhower — on 39 separate occasions issued executive actions on immigration over the last 60 years. “
