We just stand and stare, jaw-dropped and tongue-tied, speechless, helpless, unable to assimilate the brazen, unprecedented, presumptuous statements and actions coming out of the autocrats which make up the Obama Administration and which assault, invade and risk every sphere of our private enterprise and public existence and our national security. Yesterday, we learned that the Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis is unilaterally entering into agreements with foreign governments on how illegal aliens will be accommodated in the United States under the Obama regime. What does one say about a functionary who deigns to enter into agreements with foreign governments on behalf of the United States?
During the signing ceremony hosted at Labor Department headquarters in Washington D.C., Solis said the agreements are aimed at educating migrant workers, regardless of how they got here, about their rights under U.S. law and to help prevent them from being abused in the workplace, either through wages, loss of job, or deportation.
And unless we are way off the mark here, Solis’ comments indicated she is ready to assist illegal immigrants in contradiction to the oath of the Executive to “faithfully execute the laws”:
In her address at the signing ceremony, Solis asserted that all migrant workers have a “right to a legal wage”–even though the Labor Department itself states that under U.S. law, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), “employers may hire only persons who may legally work in the United States (i.e., citizens and nationals of the U.S.) and aliens authorized to work in the U.S.”
The INA “protects U.S. citizens and aliens authorized to accept employment in the U.S. from discrimination in hiring or discharge on the basis of national origin and citizenship status,” states the Labor Department Web site.
Nevertheless, during the signing ceremony today, Solis said, “No matter how you got here or how long you plan to stay, you have certain rights. You have the right to be safe and in a healthy workplace and the right to a legal wage. We gather here today to strengthen our shared commitment to protect the labor rights of migrant workers in the United States. Unfortunately, due to language barriers and immigration status, migrant workers can be those that are most vulnerably abused.”
If we were in government or in business anywhere in the United States, we wouldn’t mess with this woman. First of all, she’s got the union thugs, and probably a bunch of Mexican drug lords, covering her back, not to mention the entirety of Eric Holder’s radical left-wing Justice Department. But beyond that, she’s not afraid of anything. In fact the lot of them – Solis, Sebelius, Jackson, Salazar, Vilsak, Sunstein, Holdren, Duncan – they’re not afraid of the law, they’re not afraid of the Constitution and they’re sure as heck not afraid of Congress. That all may change someday, but for now, it seems not a day goes by that Ken Salazar isn’t telling some judge to stuff it, Eric Holder isn’t telling Congress not to hold their breath, Arne Duncan isn’t buying shotguns and telling colleges to do mental assessments of their students, Stephen Chu isn’t attempting to import oil from Brazil through the back door or Tom Vilsak isn’t telling the USDA workforce they must embrace the homosexual lifestyle.
And then we stop to consider that a wise man once said that lawlessness knows no bounds. Good grief!
