Editorial - Lawless Order Is How This White House Always Operates

A Democrat congressman's desire for all of government to "work around" immigration laws is already happening — on many laws. President Obama should be wearing an "impeach me" sign.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., told a Senate subcommittee Monday that until an amnesty-based immigration "reform" gets passed, "every institution in America, including our military, must work around the inability of our federal government and the U.S. House of Representatives to fix our immigration system."

Gutierrez is another Chicago community organizer-turned-politician, and has represented one of the most shamelessly racially gerrymandered congressional districts in the country.

...On Wednesday, taking a page from Bill Clinton, President Obama will nationalize about a half million acres of New Mexico bordering Mexico as the new Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, infuriating local police who warn that Mexican drug cartels will use it as "a pathway for criminals to get into this country to do their criminal acts," as Dona Ana County Sheriff Todd Garrison told the Washington Times. 
As House Public Lands Subcommittee Chairman Rob Bishop, R-Utah, notes, the environmental regulations within nationalized lands "limit Border Patrol access and, as a result, make it easier for drug smugglers and human traffickers to move their drugs and people in and out of the United States unnoticed."

What if the government "worked around" other laws too, like our constitutionally protected freedoms of speech and religion? Oh, hold on. The Obama administration is violating those laws, as in ObamaCare forcing faith-based groups to cover abortions, and the IRS harassing Tea Party groups because of their politics.

With impeachment a long shot, this president knows he can get away with just about as much lawbreaking as he wants.
