Letter: Dangerous precedent set by Obama immigration move
To the Editor:
The recent immigration action enacted by President Obama in allowing certain undocumented immigrants to become de facto legal, while perhaps having merit in its substance, is still alarming and dangerous in the way it was done. Can any one man, even the president, simply dismiss with laws duly enacted by Congress, for political gain, without doing long-term harm to the rule of law?
If any president – based on a self-declared superior wisdom – can choose which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore, then we are in serious trouble. The oath of office required of all presidents to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States that is taken when assuming office must be respected.
