How to insure that Republicans will never win national elections again
Courtesy Darrell Issa:
House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) is calling on President Barack Obama to deport more young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, known as Dreamers.
Issa and 32 House Republican colleagues sent a letter to the president, dated July 2, urging him to reverse his 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to halt deportation of people who would be eligible for the stalled DREAM Act. They blamed Obama's "failed policies" for the recent influx of unaccompanied minors into the U.S., mostly from Central America.
"First, we call on you to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created, without congressional support, by your Administration in June, 2012," the Republicans wrote. "While the current program only applies to arrivals prior to 2007, the very existence of the program contradicts present law and violates the Constitutional principle of a separation of powers which grants primary law making authority to Congress.
Because deporting the Dreamers is such a smart and necessary thing to do. Not to mention popular.
But never fear. There will always be a few House seats available for unreconstructed bigots. The presidency not so much.
