Skip to comments.Obama open to executive action on immigration
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.

hes going to strangle himself and yes...his party... with his unctuous arrogance
go barry go.
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?
I bet he is...Alinsky-ite that he is.
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.
Hell, the moron Republicans are going to do it for him.
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.
Yoo Hoo, calling Supremes.
Supremes will not ride in upon the white horse of Liberty. They are riding in upon the rotting corpse horses of liberalism.
Yes and you, sir, are the devil.
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.
Sounds like an impeachable offense to me.
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?
Impeach and convict this little f****t now ;/
This isn’t how our government works, Barry Girl.
You know thatmagic shield of black skin is going to turn on him and his supporters.
