Immigration Executive Order Unconstitutional

American Citizen Party 2016 Presidential Candidate Bob McNeil states that proper outrage over President Obama’s statement that he will wait until after the mid-term election in November to issue an Executive Order on Immigration policy obscures the fact that such an order would be utterly unconstitutional.

McNeil observes that the Constitution as well as tradition and precedent indicates that the Presidential Executive Order has served two primary functions. The first is to enable the Chief Executive, the President, to manage and to regulate the Executive Branch. The second is the ceremonial function.

An examples of the ceremonial function of the executive order was the declaration by President George Washington of a national day of Thanksgiving and prayer in the first year of his administration. That executive order served as the foundation of the Thanksgiving holiday. Another example of this type of ceremonial executive order was the 1870 declaration by President Ulysses S. Grant of Christmas as a national holiday.

President Abraham Lincoln seemed to have stepped outside of his presidential authority when he declared, by executive order, The Emancipation Proclamation but Lincoln did so with a codicil that acknowledged that his executive order, issued under war powers, would have to be eventually confirmed by an Amendment to the Constitution which is was in 1866.

President Obama will be stepping outside of his constitutional purview if he attempts to make a sweeping law by executive order affecting the nation as a whole regarding immigration policy. Such an act would be in contempt of Congress (Article 1. sec 8). Bob McNeil calls upon Congress to respond to President Obama’s threat to engage in such an unlawful act by preparing an article of impeachment to be introduced for a congressional vote on the same day if the President decides to make good on his threat.

Hello America,
My name is Bob McNeil, founder of the American Citizen Party, and candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
I describe myself as “an ordinary man living an extraordinary life”.
I am:
• A professional business consultant with an accounting degree and 35 years of experience auditing multi-billion dollar corporations, here in the United States, and in a number of countries around the world.
• A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1974.
• A father of two daughters.
• A grandfather of three beautiful children.
• A trusted friend to many.
I have been disillusioned with our two-party political system for quite a while now, but, rather than complain about it, I decided to do something about it.
So, using a lifetime of experience, plus the analytical skills I have acquired during my career as a professional auditor, I set out to write a plan that would spark the “21st Century American Revolution”.
Knowing the dangers of that exercise from the people in power, and to ensure its success, I established the following criteria for the plan:
• It must be constitutional;
• It must be peaceful;
• It must transcend race, religion, age, gender, political affiliation, economic status, and all other things that the politicians and the media use to divide us as a nation, and;
• It must restore liberty and prosperity to ALL American citizens.
In 2008, after one year of research and writing, I emerged with the plan. I formed the American Citizen Party in 2009 to serve as the platform from which to implement it, and have talked to millions of Americans about it in person, on the radio and in my blogs since then.
Now, it is time to go nationwide in order to build momentum for the 2014 election and my 2016 Presidential run.
If you yearn for liberty and prosperity like you’ve never before experienced, this is the political party you’ve been searching for.
Get involved. Sign up with your email address to receive my blogs. Contribute money to further the cause of liberty for yourself, your children, and future generations of Americans.
Together, we can, and we will, take back our country and restore it to its greatness.
The only way my plan will fail is if you continue to vote Democrats and Republicans into office, or worse, if you do nothing.
Take charge of your future. If you don’t, someone else will.
In freedom,
Bob McNeil
