Former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano hit out at the President this week over revelations that the Obama administration is overseeing a federal order for 34 million blank work permits and green cards, an indication that Obama is set to issue an executive order on amnesty after the midterm election.
Speaking on Fox News, the libertarian analyst said “He can’t make illegals legal. But he can do the following: he can open the borders, arguably he did that a few months ago with the Central American children in Texas; he can issue green cards to whoever he wants; he can stop deportations for the rest of his presidency.”
“…both Republican Congresses and Democratic Congresses have given to Republican and Democratic presidents extraordinary authority.” Napolitano clarified.
The order for the blank cards, to be delivered over the course of five years, was actioned by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) department, which posted a draft solicitation earlier this month announcing its intention to seek a vendor capable of delivering “an estimated 4 million cards annually with the potential to buy as many as 34 million cards total.”
“The objective of this procurement is to provide card consumables for the Document Management Division (DMD) that will be used to produce Permanent Resident Cards (PRC) and Employment Authorization Documentation (EAD) cards,” the solicitation reads.
It adds that a vendor should be prepared to “support potential ‘surge’” in demand for the cards, and be ready to “support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”
An unnamed USCIS official revealed that the solicitation was posted “in case the president makes the move we think he will.”
The move prompted frenzied reactions from immigration watchdogs and GOP lawmakers. Bob Dane, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform called the move “another petulant display of contempt of Congress,” adding that “There aren’t enough federal employees from here to Pluto to do adequate background checks on 34 million.”
Rep. Lou Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, said Thursday that the solicitation is “proof that the groundwork is already being laid to grant amnesty post-election to millions upon millions of people who have broken our laws to enter this country.”
Further referring to the possibility of an executive order on amnesty, Napolitano said “That will be so inflammatory if the Republicans take the Senate you will see the “i-word,” impeachment, bandied about.”
“Whether they want to do it, whether they think it harms them in 2016 is a political judgment. But it would be a profound reason to discuss it.” he added.
“When the president discusses his discretion about how to enforce the law in such a way that it is the opposite of what the law was intended to do, then he has violated his oath to uphold the law and is a candidate for impeachment.”
