McCain: Obama ignoring immigration laws

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- Congress likely won't challenge President Obama's plan to allow the children of illegal immigrants to stay in the United States, a GOP senator said Sunday.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said on NBC's "Meet the Press" the Republicans would have to come up with their own plan to replace the controversial Obama policy, which was being implemented through an executive order through the Department of Homeland Security.

"It would have to be challenged in court," said McCain, whose homestate is a hotbed of illegal immigration.

McCain said he was disturbed at what he saw as Obama's "dictating that certain laws will not be enforced."

"That is a rather serious step," McCain said. "It's one thing to say you're not going to challenge a law in court, but I don't recall a time when any president has basically said, we're not going to enforce a law that's on the books."

McCain declined to offer any counter-proposals on immigration, telling NBC that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was spearheading the development of a GOP plan for immigration reform. "If the president was really serious maybe he would call him and some of us who have been involved in this issue," he said.

White House adviser David Plouffe told NBC the administration was not ignoring immigration law but was instead establishing enforcement priorities. "This was a decision made by the Homeland Security Department to allow them the discretion to focus our enforcement on criminals, people who pose danger to the communities," he said. "That's really where the law enforcement focus should be."

, which formed the basis for a biaastirpn stimulus package that passed the Congress. Is that true?Democrats on Capitol Hill who support Obama say no.Wanting Obama to win, however, none will say so on the record.But media accounts from the time make it clear that even though Obama, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., all offered legislation to provide stimulus to the economy, congressional leaders looped them and their legislation out of negotiations.Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson worked with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kent. Pelosi and Reid seemed to be ignoring the detailed policy solutions being put out by her party's White House hopefuls, wrote the Washington Post on January 23. Among Reid's toughest tasks will be keeping Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., and Barack Obama, D-Ill. who are on the campaign trail touting proposals laden with ideas Republicans detest sidelined in the talks while Democrats seek broader agreement with the GOP, wrote the Associated Press the same day.The bill passed 81-16 on February 7, 2008.The Obama campaign argues that in January 2008, Obama was the only candidate to propose a fiscal stimulus plan centered on tax rebate checks for the broad majority of Americans. The biaastirpn bill that passed less than a month later was centered on rebate checks to the broad middle class along the lines of what Obama proposed. That is true.Obama proposed a tax rebate aimed at middle class families. Clinton’s approach, conversely, focused on specific programs targeted at individuak problems, such as home-heating and mortgage subsidies.But though the bill that eventually passed more closely resembled Obama's than either Clinton's or McCain's, those involved in the drafting of the legislation say it was more a matter of agreeing on a good idea and was not a matter of, as Obama claimed, his proposal having formed the basis for a biaastirpn stimulus package that passed the Congress. In Vienna, Ohio, this afternoon, McCain said that Obama today claimed that the Congressional stimulus package was his idea. That’s news to those of us in Congress who supported it. Senator Obama didn’t even show up to vote. That's true. (McCain was there, and he voted for it.)Moreover, Obama today was guilty of inflating his role in the creation of that bill. jpt

Trying to run a “free market ecmonoy” with less regulation and fewer regulators is like trying to run a basketball tournament with fewer rules and fewer referees.Free market economies require good rule of law to resolve contracts and torts, fair rules for the markets and enough cops and regulators to keep everyone within the law and market rules. Wall street is like a college basket ball team, it needs rules and referees.
