DREAM ACT - #3027 - Obama Administration Passes DREAM ACT by Executive Memo - Hot Air (2) DISGRACE: U.S. Soccer Team Faces Boos and Spanish Language Ceremony in Loss to Mexico in Los Angeles - The Blaze

Who needs Congressional authority when you can govern by executive fiat?“A new enforcement memo handed down by the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week has some accusing the White House of running around Congress to implement the DREAM Act – and consequent amnesty for some illegal immigrants – by executive fiat. The new memo, penned by ICE Director John Morton, directs ICE agents, attorneys and directors to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” – meaning less likelihood of deportation – for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.”Morton’s excuse for the memo—”not enough resources”: Specifically, the memo argues, “Because the agency is confronted with more violations than its resources can address, the agency must regularly exercise prosecutorial discretion.”

It may not be an explicit executive order; it’s an implicit one.” Read more.......

Its goalkeeper was bathed in a chanted obscenity. Even its national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach ballsMost of these hostile visitors didn’t live in another country. Most, in fact, were not visitors at all, many of them being U.S. residents whose lives are here but whose sporting souls remain elsewhere.After El Tri’s 4-2 victory at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., Howard blasted CONCACAF officials for conducting the title ceremony in Spanish.  “CONCACAF should be ashamed of themselves,” Howard said. “I think it was a [expletive] disgrace that the entire postmatch ceremony was in Spanish. You can bet your ***that if we were in Mexico City, it wouldn’t be all in English. Read more, see video.......
