Obama has just freed Immigrants seeking to become citizens from having to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States” – a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.
Congress did not enact new legislation. There was no congressional debate, filibuster or sit-in in the House because this change was implemented without Congress.
Obama just did it! Just like that!
Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.
Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.
In fact, most Americans will think it extremely odd that the USCIS action with regard to the Oath of Allegiance is not illegal. But the fact is, unelected bureaucrats at the USCIS can change the wording of the Oath without approval of the people’s representatives in Congress.
Every day, Obama is getting his “Change” bit by bit. Baby steps. While America sleeps.
We have a HUGE problem with immigrants that want to come here with the sole purpose of hurting us and Obama is just throwing away the Oath of Allegiance.
At close to 1 million new legal immigrants a year, the odds of those entering who have a nefarious purpose grows daily.
We are a nation of immigrants.
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
We welcome those who want to come here to live the American dream and love the society we have created, excited to give the Oath of Allegiance.
Obama encourages the opposite, and that makes him a traitor in my book! There! I said it!
