If the assumption that a change in policy from the DOJ is an open door policy, and will encourage more illegal entrance into the US, then the disconnect between reality and assumptions are infinite.
As for the new policy enforced by the DOJ, it actually was supported by the president, if you choose to call it "executive privilege" then so be it. He has what is called, the doctrine of unitary executive. meaning, the president holds control over the entire executive branch. He tipped the power because Congress didn't do their job.
The DOJ is one of those agencies that falls under the executive branch. The doctrine is based on Article Two, clause I of the United States Constitution. It posits strict limits on Congress which seeks to always assert complete power over the president, is not viable, the reasons are overt. He committed nothing unconstitutional in by-passing Congress. It is the right of the president to enforce policies relating to his executive branch.
Ronald Reagon, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush used the unitary doctrine.
1987, Ronald Reagan issued a signing statement that declared: "If this provision were interpreted otherwise, so as to require the President to follow the orders of a subordinate, it would plainly constitute an unconstitutional infringement of the President's authority as head of a unitary executive branch".
As for Americans out of work and this being an inopportune time, again, assumptions. If the US is in poor economic condition, it is of its own making and its lack of comprehensive and definitive long term solutions.
Just as some illegal individuals in the US are not working, there are Americans not working. The assumption that we need jobs for Americans has nothing to do with someone else taking them. They cannot take, what we don't have much of and if they do qualify for a position, it's for a job most citizens do not want, McDonald's, Jack in the Box, housekeeping, doing landscape in wealthy neighborhoods in the dead of heat, childcare, etc.. Illegal individuals do not hurt the economy. Citizens hurt their economy by rejecting a job that seems beneath them. It is a fact, just do research.
And there is the state by state GPD, California has the leading GPD (in millions) and we have the largest concentration of undocumented individuals in the nation. Montana is 49th of the 52. Don't worry, we have them all over here. :)
I do agree with that the law is the law in terms of illegal entrance, but such unnecessary ranting is futile for such a small feat.
There is no educating the ignorant that choose to be, because it serves their bias view of the world. Education is a book away from ignorance. Ignorance is one of the nefarious ills of society. Nothing is worse than a blind person that cannot see, than that one which can.
Couldn't be more clear.
