... the speechifiers were already busy writing yesterdays Catch and Release speech.
... they didnt have much to work with. No court ruling, no new law, no proposed law, not even an executive order! They had to use a version of Big Guys patented mathemagicals ® to invent the rationale for securing 800,000 additional votes to WFT. By the way, now you understand why Rickys DOJ is adamant about not letting Florida remove those illegal voters from their rolls, right? We knew that when Big Guy waved his Homeland Security magic wand that most of them would be legal! Why go through all the trouble of having to re-register.
So, in case you think this is an overstep, allow Bruno to set you straight.
"A grant of deferred action is not immunity, it is not amnesty," Napolitano told reporters. "It is an exercise of discretion."
And we all know discretion is the better part of valor
And heres why we had to do this through discretion: because even Big Guy agrees that he cant do what he just did through an executive order:
'The fact of the matter is there are laws on the books I have to enforce,' Big Guy said.
THE PRESIDENT: I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce
Now, what we can do is to prioritize enforcement, since there are limited enforcement resources, and say we're not going to go chasing after this young man
Butt, butt I thought selective enforcement was, uh er racial profiling?

They interviewed an illegal who was graduating from UCLA. She said she was happy because now she could work. Daddy was shipped home 5 years ago. Momma was soooo happy. Of course it means she ripped us off for her bills.
The thing is...you just get a two-year waiver. You come right back in 2014 and face the situation again. At the current rate of pace for getting in on the regular citizenship deals....if you get in line today....you might come up in two decades. I don’t see how it’s right to just let a guy stand there two decades and waiting for his turn to get citizenship papers.
Obama has just decreed that mexico is now the largest welfare state in the union. We might as well just take over mexico now, and make it all legal. When you have roughly a quarter of the mexican population living in the US illegaly, we might as well take their country over and recoupe some of our costs.
A week before he goes to speak to some "hispanic" group, he unilaterally gives amnesty to young "illegals".
Maybe we should keep an eye on his speaking schedule to know what type of pandering move he has in mind next.
His turn? It is his God given right to be an American?
I do not think this has anything to do with securing additional votes. Obama will have 800,000 to 1 million unemployed young men whose loyalty will be to him personally. Where have we seen that before?
Does this mean the former illegals will now need to abide by American laws and pay taxes, buy auto insurance, get smog tests for their cars, get a job and go to work, only vote once, pay their traffic tickets, and not leave the scene of an accident?
No, I didn’t think so. Silly me!
I know nothing will be done to Obama and he will skate free.
But, Obama has now set the precedent, and what goes around comes around.
Will be interesting to see how the LSM and lefties react when a republican president uses Obama’s tactics to circumvent liberal laws &c?
