Pam Bondi’s executive order

Attorney General Pam Bondi is now wearing the emperor’s new clothes. This all-powerful person has decided for all the people in Florida that we should fight President Obama’s executive order to stop the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants.

The argument that Obama’s executive order sets a precedent falls flat in the presence of hundreds of similar actions by his predecessors. And the challenge that Obama’s orders will be dismissed as soon as Congress passes a comprehensive immigration bill remains unanswered. Outside of our Native American population throughout Florida, we are all immigrants or descended from immigrants.

How dare Bondi join other states to place our immigrant population into such a fragile and life threatening situation.
