If Obama Can Ignore The Law Requiring the Deportation of Illegal Aliens, Why Can't He Ignore the Law Requiring Asylum Hearings?

Obama's defense for the border chaos is that a 2008 law, signed by President Bush, requires that illegal immigrant children be granted an asylum hearing before any possible deportation.

However, given that Obama has already decided he has the power to not enforce laws requiring deportation, why can't he ignore this one too?

Why can't he "borrow" the power from Congress to temporarily suspend this law given the crisis?

And as a matter of fact, he already is ignoring this law, vis-a-vis child immigrants from Mexico.

From the LA Times:

Most of the minors are being held in Border Patrol stations in Texas and Arizona, and in emergency facilities set up by the Department of Health and Human Services on military bases and other sites. About 11,000, however, were from Mexico and were swiftly bused back across the border, as the law allows.

It must be noted that it is Obama's lawless decision to stop enforcing the deportation law as pertains to children which is causing the flood of children at the border.

Conn Carroll suggests that if Obama is determined to aggrandize his alleged executive powers to the absolute limit, he might consider doing something helpful along the way.

Incidentally, NBC and CBS actually troubled themselves to notice that Obama was still refusing to visit the border, despite having four fundraisers scheduled in Texas.
