One of the unfortunate developments of 2012 was the continued usurpation of the legislative process by a president intent upon pursuing his personal political objectives, even if doing so meant evading the constitutional separation of powers. In addition to the broad administrative amnesty initiated by ICE in 2011, the last year of the Obama administration saw the implementation of a policy called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an end-run around Congress’s consistent rejection of the Dream Act that has already afforded hundreds of thousands of potential criminals the opportunity to exploit American taxpayers, i.e. suckers.
While the executive branch seeks to ratify this transparently extraconstitutional move in the next session of Congress, even as it is simultaneously expanding the number of straight ticket Democratic Party voters, the fate of these DREAMers remains a very important subject. That’s why I’m pleased to publish the raw footage of a new documentary which seeks to examine that issue from a multiplicity of perspectives. One of the voices of this film is the founder and president of New Yorkers for Immigration Control and Enforcement, Joanna Marzullo, who you can hear and see in the video above. She discusses her group’s position on the DREAM Act, the influences that shaped her views on the topic of illegal immigration, and what she believes the correct solution to this problem to be.
I urge you to watch the interview in its entirety.
