Oaths of office are statements of loyalty as much as they are declarations of accepted responsibility to a constitution or other legal text - statutes - and it is treason or high crime to betray one's oath of office...
Failure to act upon the national security issue of illegal immigration or promoting the legitimizing of 11 million illegal aliens (and later their aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, cousins, children, grandchildren...), the operative word of course being 'illegal,' cannot rest in agreement with the Preaamble to the Constitution or any oath sworn to defend it:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
The Constitution was created to:
Insure domestic Tranquility
Provide for the common defence
Promote the general Welfare
"Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity."
Legitimizing 11 million illegal aliens does injury to, and makes war upon those very principles which introduce the Constitution, especially in reference to "...our Posterity..." (which the FOunders wrote with a capitalized "P").
The Founders of this nation and the Framers of the Constitution realized as their natural descendents those that are born here or who are naturalized legally. A horde of individuals criminally resident within the borders of America do inury to the "Posterity" defined in the Preamble to Constitution and cannot claim rightful inheritance to it.
Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution states, "The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union, a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."
"Invasion" and "Domestic Violence" - not the kind that occurs in the home, but the 'domestic' viloence perpetrated by a 'domestic enemy' of the people of the United States are now parsed with the euphemisms, denials, and protestations of innocense by illegal aliens and their promoters.
Our republican principals are ignored, our borders daily trampled, our laws broken, our sovereignty violated, and our citizens are under violent attack on their persons and property from outside peoples and foreign nationals who commit 'domestic violence' and deny Americans their very Lives, Liberty and their Pursuit of Happiness as well as thier Safety.
Our borders are wide-open sieves. More Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens in the U.S. than all U.S. troops killed in Iraq in the years since the invasion of Iraq in March, 2003.
Thousands of Americans are murdered every year by illegal aliens whose very anonymity encourages crime. Thousands are killed by the negligent acts of illegals.
Illegal aliens are repeatedly arrested, re-arrested, released, and deported only to return.
29% of all those incarcerated in U.S. federal prisons are illegal aliens.
32% of all illegal aliens receive welfare.
50% of illegal aliens pay no income taxes.
Not counting the untold cost of crime, disease, and millions of displaced jobs, illegal aliens are costing middle-class Americans an estimated (for who can tell the true amount?) $70 Billion to $338 Billion in net losses (per year) by overburdening the courts, the schools, the hospitals, and the welfare system. The personal costs to those Americans who are the victims of crime, fraud, and negligence perpetrated by illegals is more difficult to calculate but no less severe.
And what about the oath of office?
The oath of office for the President of the United States is specified in the U.S. Constitution (Article II, Section 1):
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Notice that the phrase, "...against enemies, foreign and domestic..." is not in the Presidential oath. The oath for the Vice President does contain the phrase:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
