Posted on 06/21/2010 5:46:06 PM PDT by grey_whiskers
Several Senators have learned of a possible plan by the Obama Administration that would provide a mass Amnesty for the nation's 11-18 million illegal aliens. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), eight Senators addressed a letter to the President asking for answers to questions about a plan that would allow DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to provide an amnesty if they can't secure enough votes for a bill in the Senate.
The letter that was sent to Pres. Obama earlier today asks the President for clarification on the use of deferred action or parole for illegal aliens. The executive actions are typically used in special cases and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but if 60 votes can't be secured in the Senate to pass a mass Amnesty, the Administration may use the discretionary actions as an alternative.

This is why winning the House back in Nov. will simply make Obama more dangerous. He’ll have a veto pen in one hand, and an E.O. pen in another....not to mention all the unelected regulators one could ask for.
They would no longer be needed!
Oh! And they can leave their retirement benefits behind!
Nothing acute. But plenty somatic. IOW, it's just his nature, not some temporary aberration.
As soon as the Latin American news picks this one up, there is going to be a STAMPEDE of illegals across the border.

NOtice is says Napolitano. This way his Highness can say it wasn’t him. Now I know where JOhn Gotti learned to be the Teflon Don.
GOD I HATE THIS GUY!!!
Obama and his criminal gang are salivating at getting
18 million new Democratic voters. If there isn’t a clean sweep of these bas*ar*s in November, this country is finished.
Congress holds the purse strings, Annie. He can veto but congress can override those vetoes. As for EOs, let’em rip. They can be removed later.
With Republicans controlling all of Congress, they can hold Obama by the short-hairs. He is a coward and a liar and then will be a lame duck.
You’re correct. But Obama isn’t going to let a few laws get in his way. Who’ll stop him?
Why would the Pelosi/Reid Congress do anything against their political interests?
And they still won’t make an issue of his sealed records... Playing nice gets the GOP nowhere.
Welcome to Tyranny.
Pray for America
This dummy is stupid enough to do it. He lives in some fantasy world where he thinks the Left will win the civil war he’s trying to start.
This guy just makes up the rules as he goes and no one challenges him on it.
He pull this and every state should withhold tax payments to the US. Put them in an escrow account, but don’t send them to the treasury. Then file suit.
