Commentary on the administrative or non-legislative Dream Act.
Many times governments and law enforcement entities quit enforcing, or in the case of some antiquated and ridiculous laws, just forget their very existence. But this issue is being played for as much publicity as possible, in what might be one of the slickest political maneuvers in many years. This is not a criticism for being political and disingenuous, all politicians are that…A comparable issue somewhat is the medical marijuana issue, where the Obama Administration promises to respect state law, and does just the opposite. Here the forces against medical marijuana go to the very heart of who really runs society. Were talking about some big toes here: Big Pharma, Big Medical, Military Industrial Police State, even big agra, and the petro-chemical industry (Look into the history of hemp). So while it is ridiculous to deport what are de facto Americans, that came to this country at an early age, and have been good citizens, the whole issue raises enormous Constitutional questions. Congress may pass the laws, but if the executive doesn’t implement them, what then? On the other hand recently The Presidency has gone to war, with no congressional assent, approval or even consultation. Very impeachable under the law, but not politically feasible.
