Here are the best political cartoons that sum up King Obama’s amnesty for millions of illegals and Obama’s own statements admitting that executive amnesty is unconstitutional and lawless.

Nov. 25, 2013, Betty Ann Ong Chinese Recreation Center, San Francisco, Cali.:
Now, what you need to know, when I’m speaking as President of the United States and I come to this community, is that if, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so. But we’re also a nation of laws. That’s part of our tradition. And so the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws. And what I’m proposing is the harder path, which is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you want to achieve. But it won’t be as easy as just shouting. It requires us lobbying and getting it done.
July 25, 2011, President Obama’s speech to La Raza:
Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. And believe me, right now dealing with Congress — believe me — believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how — that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.

March 28, 2011, Univision interview:
With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case…. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.
Sept. 28, 2011, Hispanic Roundtable at the White House:
I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true…. We live in a democracy. You have to pass bills through the legislature, and then I can sign it.
