Obama hits the Trifecta!

The Obama administration has hit the trifecta. In one bloated policy swoop, BO and his minions of evil have found a way to ignore current law they don't like, enact stalled legislation they do, and create a brand-new protected class. Who says Obama hasn't accomplished anything?

According to the New York Times, "The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety. " Who needs laws when you have policies? We don't like the current law so we'll just policy our way around it!

The next step was the de facto enactment of the stalled Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or Dream Act. The NY Times also reports that "The decision would, through administrative action, help many intended beneficiaries of legislation that has been stalled in Congress for a decade. The sponsor of the legislation, Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, has argued that “these young people should not be punished for their parents’ mistakes.” You won't pass the legislation we want? We'll enact it through policy!

The final piece in this triumvirate of unmitigated gall was the creation of a new protected class. I guess the left has finally run out of ideas of completely new groups to "protect", so they are now grouping them together. We now have the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Undocumented Worker class. Again, according to the NY Times, "White House officials said the new policy could help illegal immigrants with family members in the United States. The White House is interpreting “family” to include partners of lesbian, gay and bisexual people." Richard Socarides, a New York lawyer who was an adviser to President Bill Clinton on gay issues, said, “The new policy will end, at least for now, the deportations of gay people legally married to their same-sex American citizen partners, and it may extend to other people in same-sex partnerships.”

Some days, all I can do is shake my head and say WOW!
