I think President Obama needs a little lesson on the role of government. The Constitution established three branches of government: the judiciary, the executive, and the legislative. The legislative branch, which includes the Senate and House of Representatives, makes the law; the judiciary branch, the system of courts, interprets the law; and the executive branch, which includes the president, vice-president, the cabinet, and a numerous assortment of agencies, enforces the law.
Now that we've made that perfectly clear, shouldn't the most brilliant man to ever reside in the White House be well aware of the fact that he is disobeying the law of the land? Congress voted down the Dream Act last year before the Democrat-controlled House and Senate left office after the 2010 election. So, why is Obama, who has no authority to make law, trying to overrule the decision made by Congress?
Worried about votes, are you, Mr. President? With a track record like yours, I can indeed see why.

Who Needs Congress?… Obama Rams Through DREAM Act By Executive Order
"The US Senate voted down the DREAM Act in December. But, it doesn’t matter. Obama pushed the law through by executive order last week.
The Examiner reported:
'On Friday, the Obama administration issued a memo announcing that federal immigration officials do not have to deport illegal aliens if they are enrolled in any type of education program, if their family members have volunteered for U.S. military service, or even if they are pregnant or nursing.
This new policy of “prosecutorial discretion” was quietly announced on Friday afternoon, and completely ignored by the mainstream press.
Author of Arizona’s SB1070 and Kansas’ secretary of state, Kris Kobach, told the Daily Caller: “They’re pushing the [immigration] agents to be even more lax, to go further in not enforcing the law. At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work, this is more bad news coming from the Obama administration… [if the administration] really cared about putting Americans back to work, it would be vigorously enforcing the law.”'"
