Allen West: Obama’s Latest Executive Order ‘Unlawful’ & Military ‘Well Within Their Rights’ to Disobey It
Late last month, as Americans were distracted by the news of Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation, President Obama quietly and unceremoniously violated his oath of office once again by bolstering lawlessness as the official policy of the United States. Obama issued another unconstitutional executive order that would allow illegal immigrants to join the United States military.
Despite holding such a low regard for our nation and her laws that millions remain in the country illegally, many of these illegal immigrants are now eligible to take the jobs of Americans in the armed forces, according to the new edict. The policy is open to those who qualify for Obama’s equally unlawful Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program (DACA).
To discuss the issue, Army Lt. Col. Allen West (ret.) joined Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro to discuss the unlawful action. When Judge Jeanine noted that it was a felony to arm an illegal immigrant, Col. West agreed but noted, “When has law ever meant anything to Barack Hussein Obama? But the more important thing we have to come to understand is that if you go to the Constitution, to Article I, Section VIII, Clause number four, that says that only Congress has the ability to make rules or laws regarding naturalization; the president does not have that. So, when you go back and look at the executive order he did, calling it a DREAM Act, you look at this edict that he has sent down, it is an unlawful order.”
