President Barack Obama has no intention of letting the Supreme Court of the United States interfere with his vow to “fundamentally transform America.”
Following the recent SCOTUS ruling that resulted in a tie, affirming the lower 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against Obama’s illegal executive amnesty for illegal aliens, Obama announced that the enforcement priorities that he has put into place were not affected by the ruling, and therefore deporting people who are in this country illegally is not going to be a priority of his administration.
Obama declared during his speech that illegal aliens who “have roots” in their communities are “low priorities.”
“What was unaffected by today’s ruling, or lack of a ruling, is the enforcement priorities that we’ve put in place.”
“Our enforcement priorities have been laid out by Secretary Jeh Johnson and the Department of Homeland Security are pretty clear.”
“We prioritize criminals, we prioritize gang-bangers, we prioritize folks who have just come in. What we don’t do is prioritize people who have been here a long time, who are otherwise law-abiding, who have roots and connection of their communities, so those enforcement priorities will continue.”
Does Obama’s attitude toward the Supreme Court surprise you?
