Gheen: Obama acting ‘outside the law’ with DHS plan

Chad Groening   (OneNewsNow.com) Monday, October 01, 2012

A border-enforcement advocate is blasting President Barack Obama over the Department of Homeland Security's decision to allow illegal aliens with American same-sex partners to be eligible for consideration of having their deportation orders put on hold.

The announcement was made public late Friday afternoon. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano said a memo to Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices will state that binational same-sex couples in long-term relationships would meet the definition of family that government lawyers can use as grounds for deferring a foreign citizen's removal from the U.S.

Gheen, William (ALIPAC)

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC), reacted to the announcement in an interview with OneNewsNow.

"... Here's the Obama administration again giving legal status - a legal "family" status - to homosexuals as part of an amnesty for illegal immigrants," he says. "He's also expanding the unlawful, unconstitutional amnesty measures, which started with the DREAM Act kit."

According to Gheen, Obama is acting outside the Constitution of the United States in an effort to strengthen his hold on "unlawful" political power.

"He's creating legislation," says Gheen. "He is a tyrant, he is a dictator, he is an authoritarian, [and] he is acting outside the law.

"He is contradicting the U.S. Constitution, and [he's] appealing to any group of people that he believes that he can appeal to to be loyal to him politically and possibly further than that. He's calling on people that he can count on to mobilize for him politically and possibly anything else that he wants."

LaBarbera, Peter

Peter LaBarbera with Americans for Truth About Homosexuality concurs with Gheen.

"They're trying to an end-run around Congress by promoting homosexual relationships," says LaBarbera. "It's bad enough if it were to be passed by Congress and then signed into law by the president -- but here again, we have Obama going around Congress and just enacting these radical policies."
