Obama open to executive action on immigration
Washington Examiner ^ | 1/31/14 | Meghashyam Mali

Posted on 01/31/2014 3:48:21 PM PST by Libloather

President Obama on Friday said that he believed immigration reform could pass in 2014, but cautioned that he would consider executive actions if House Republicans fail to act.

“There are still some differences, and obviously, the devil is in the details. But it is my firm belief that we can get immigration reform done this year,” said Obama in a Google+ Hangout in which he took questions from the public.

“Obviously, if at some point we see that it's not getting done, I'm going to look at options to make sure that we have a rational, smart system of immigration,” the president added. “But I'm going to do everything I can in these coming months to see if we can get this over the finish line. And I think we actually can get it done.”

So in other words he is now going to use executive action on EVERYTHING. Are the Republican wuss bags going to finally crawl out from hiding under their desks or are the citizens of this country going to have to deal with tyranny themselves?

It sure would be nice if the Congress was more concerned about protecting their country, than helping to destroy it. The overreach and abuse continues against the people, without any protection from Congress.

is threatening Major Corporations with punitive measures if they do not capitulate to his BLANKET AMNESTY AGENDA.
Major Corporations in turn are pressuring Chamber Of Commerce to get in line with the Agenda.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce then is SPENDING MILLIONS of dollars lobbying Washington politicians to import more foreign workers and cheap labor.

Instead of enforcing the laws, he has decided it is more fun to write them.

His failure to execute the laws of this country is an impeachable offense.

But he has the magic shield of black skin.

Supremes will not ride in upon the white horse of Liberty. They are riding in upon the rotting corpse horses of liberalism.

I'd hate to be the one who gives him the idea, but Holder is already the expert on pardons.

While not exactly amnesty, what if Obama were to issue a blanket amnesty for immigration violations to everyone who entered illegally?

Could he do that? It is his Constitutional power.

I am appalled that the Republican ‘leadership’ is sooooo stupid! Someone needs to shout from the rooftops ‘Obama will nullify EVERY SAFEGUARD you put into your ridiculous immigration Bill’. Haven’t they been paying attention? If Obama goes it alone, I hope they do bring impeachment articles against him. I AM FED UP!

Immigration is more about obama opening the doors wider for muslims than anything else.

Perhaps. Or maybe the GOP will bail him out with some ill-conceived mini-amnesty proposal. Aren't they chewing that over now at some retreat?

Black and Latino unemployment rates are already far higher than white unemployment rates. The Mexican-American unemployment rate is between 10 and 12 percent. If American companies can’t employ the millions of Mexican-Americans already in this country, why do they insist on displacing minority workers born in this country, including Mexican-Americans, by legalizing 12 million more? - Greenfield
