pardons

Obama is moving out of the White House soon, but before he goes he will be able to offer his pardons and millions of illegal immigrants are anxiously waiting.

When Obama turns over the presidency to Donald Trump, the biggest story on the news that day might be his pardons.

Jesse Jackson is coming out and saying that Obama needs to pardon Hillary, and of all the pardons, one for Hillary is most likely.

The millions of Americans that think Hillary is a criminal and want to see her behind bars may never get that chance if Obama pardons her, but who else might he pardon?

Can he pardon illegal immigrants? Well, technically he can.

President Carter offered a sweeping pardon to anyone that was in violation of the Military Selective Service Act between a nine-year period.

Obama could do something similar this year for Illegal immigrants, but how it is enforced could be a nightmare.

There is no specific law to pardon from, and he doesn’t have the names of each illegal immigrant.

The Immigration and Nationality Act isn’t like the Military Selective Service Act. The INA is a very large set of laws that would fill a book. The MSSA is a very simple and concise law.

The other question is how many immigrants could he pardon?

Some believe that he could pardon the parents of citizens or it could be more sweeping and allow all illegal immigrants in the US to be immune to certain immigration laws.

Obama could possibly turn the United States into a Sanctuary City and there won’t be that much Trump could do about it.

Illegal immigrants all over the country, especially the Latino community, are doing all they can to persuade Obama to grant them a pardon.

If something drastic happens then there could be a lot of backlash, but it could all happen while Obama is on the golf course.

The fallout from massive pardons that could affect between two and 12 million illegal immigrants would be massive and further throw this country into chaos.

Do you think Obama will offer sweeping pardons for illegal immigrants? Let us know in the comments below.

Former President Jimmy Carter has something radical to say to Christians: Jesus would’ve loved gay marriage.

“I believe that Jesus would approve gay marriage,” Carter said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “That’s just my own personal belief.”

Carter, one of the most liberal Presidents in recent memory, now describes himself as a born-again Christian.

He doesn’t cite any reason for believing that Jesus would support the institution of gay marriage–which, in many states, wasn’t legal until just last month. And certainly not approved of in biblical times.

When asked about his own personal views about gay marriage, Carter says “that’s no problem with me.”

“I never have run across any really serious conflicts between my political obligations and my religious faith,” he added. “I think everybody should have a right to get married.”

Carter draws the line at forcing churches to perform gay weddings if they wanted to, but not the government: gay couples, he believes, “should be able to go to the local courthouse or to a different church and get married–that’s no problem.”

Surprisingly, despite Carter’s liberal reputation, he does draw the line at abortion–putting him squarely at odds with a Democratic Party that has become increasingly supportive of abortion (and willing to claim a so-called “War on Women” for those against abortion.)

Carter also cites his faith as the reason he’s pro-life.

“I have had a problem with abortion, and this has been a longtime problem of mine,” he explained. “I have a hard time believing that Jesus, for instance, would approve abortions unless it was because of rape or incest or if the mother’s life was in danger. So I’ve had that struggle, but my oath of office was to obey the Constitution and [the] laws of this country as interpreted by the Supreme Court. So I went along with that. But that’s been the only caveat.”
