Obama Eyes Major Immigration Move
time ^ | 7/24/14 | Alex Altman

Posted on 07/24/2014 10:48:05 PM PDT by Nachum

The President may be preparing to provide temporary legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants RECOMMENDED FOR YOU World Cup Whimsy Captured in New McDonalds Ad Why America Doesn't Like Soccer, And How That Can Be Changed Health - TIME by Taboola

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. They hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated 11.7 million estimated undocumented immigrants in the U.S. “He seems resolute that he’s going to go big and go soon,” says Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-reform group America’s Voice.

Exactly what Obama plans to do is a closely held secret. But following the meeting with the activists, Obama declared his intention to use his executive authority to reform parts of a broken immigration system that has cleaved families and hobbled the economy. After being informed by Speaker John Boehner that the Republican-controlled House would not vote on a comprehensive overhaul of U.S. immigration law this year, the President announced in a fiery speech that he was preparing “to do what Congress refuses to do, and fix as much of our immigration system as we can.”

If relying on politicians, this won’t be stopped. That is why Obama is doing this before November.

We have run out of time for waiting until the next election, which is what we always do. That alone has put the people in this mess.

If Obama acts, before the election this could sweep democrats out of office. But Obama knows there won’t be any political blowback because the republicans won’t make anything of it. They want the same thing — amnesty for illegals, so republicans won’t make Obama pay for relinquishing the sovereignty of the United States by stroke of the pen.

That’s why I think this is just a lot of bluster. Does anyone really think he needs time to decide what to do? This executive order has been written since he entered office. He knows amnesty is not popular, but he has to placate La Raza. The Republicans are not doing anything to distinguish themselves for the mid terms, amnesty like this would negate their need to do so. But, I could be wrong. The only positive is, everything Obama does like this can be eliminated with the stroke of a Republican pen.

Treason all around.

Exactly. Special favors for invaders welcomed by the U.S.A. (United Socialists of America) and King Hussein.

TREASON - continuous, in-your-face, agenda-driven, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, media-complicit, ongoing…

ARTICLE IV SECTION. 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence. - U.S. Contitution

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers…

--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

All of his actions seem inexplicable unless you understand he is a committed Marxist. If he is a Marxist all of his actions are explicable and totally rational with Marxist dogma.

We’d already have amnesty, as you say, and then, THEN, a liberal or Marxist.

THe people in this country will continue voting for socialists, continue watching culturally depraved media, “feeling” liberally until the just steep in it, like this.

If this isn’t enough there’ll be more.

Watch for it here, ‘Oh, Hillary can’t be as bad a Obama’,

Or anywhere in the news, warren, or that La Raza Migrant, (Texas to DC) Castro.

Anyone who dreams of thinking of suggesting that Romney would have been better than this doesn’t know what we’re looking at.

and it all comes down to the 47% the politicians love.

And don’t dream they don’t ALL work Abortion and its root, birth control, to their advantage. That is moral equivalence. And until they are steeped in terror and invasion, the 47% and the rest, will not have had enough. Hope that they’ll have enough soon.

I voted for Romney and I’d probably have to consider voting for the next wad they RNC sent up, but I do believe those days are over.

Anyway, those who didn’t vote for Romney will not vote for a fluffy GOPe candidate, and you can probably count on double that.

People know, if not just in their hearts, that this country has checks and balances for this, against this, and that they are imbedded in the congress, and that the congress, like Romney, are sitting tis out.

They are the Americans and they are to blame for enabling.

There, yes, I said it.

Just in time for his summer vacationthe fall elections. There, fixed it.

Just like he did in the runup to the 2010 elections when he announced the "Dream Act" that Congress had rejected. That executive action got him a Republican House of Representatives. Will this "double-down" get him a Republican Senate?

f the federal government cannot handle and process the thousands of illegal immigrant children crossing the border everyday, how in the world will it be able to process 20 million illegal immigrants already here if it passes amnesty laws?

Go South? Did you notice that none of the children head south?

If they don’t head south, it means that their goal is obviously to seek the good life in the the United States, and not merely to “escape” violence as many of the children claim.

Follow the children: If a child says he came to find his parents, then check out the parents to see if they are here illegally.

Pass this law: Illegal immigrant children must remain in state that they first enter, like Texas. The clhildren cannot be shipped all over the country like Obama does now.

Such a law may finally put pressure on Obama to do something.

Notice this “executive order” will come AFTER the influx Ina million more illegals.

Those most affected by this, through job loss, etc, will be Obama supporters. Can’t think of a better group to suffer the most.

As far as I know, Obama’s Executive Order powers are limited to clarifying/interpreting existing laws passed by Congress and to issue actions/requirements to agencies that fall under the Executive Branch.

He cannot, to the extent they do not violate existing Federal statutes, rewrite or nullify the STATES’ laws wholesale.

Every state that wants its welfare maintain had better be figuring out how they are going to undermine him in this regard.

You seem to forget most Republican politicians are supporting it as well...

Obama doesn't make these decisions...He's playing golf, having fund raisers and goes on vacations so much he couldn't possibly be in charge of anything...He's just the mouthpiece when they need someone to stand in front of a camera...
