White House pursuing plan to expand immigrant rights
Los Angeles Times ^

Posted on 07/26/2014 9:49:43 AM PDT by TigerClaws

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks.

Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama's move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded.

Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed the proposals on condition of anonymity.

There is no crisis on the border. Everything is proceeding as Washington has planned it.

So much for equal protection.

Obozo's new voters are more equal.

And yeah, I know they aren't "eligible" to vote, but that has never stopped them before.

Where is he getting the money....from the military budget? That’s the only money he cuts. Tell your member of Congress to vote against any funding for this national suicide.

The illegal, treasonous bastard occupying the White House needs to be tarred and feathered and then run out of town on a rail. Just like the old days. Otherwise, I just don’t see how we will survive the next 2.5 years at this rate. And by the time he IS gone (if ever), the damage he has inflicted on our country and the CITIZENS will essentially be irreversible.

If all of us don’t call our Congressional Representative and both Senators and demand they stop him, we’re letting him do this. If your Rep. or Senator is a Democrat, even better! Let them know that we won’t stand for his shenanigans any longer. Put the fear of God in them!

Legality matters?

He will just end enforcement and it’ll be de facto amnesty. Already is in most cases.

Everything Democrats stand for results in a weaker USA:

1. Weaker military
2. Weak education
3. Immorality
4. Dividing people into groups and manipulating them against each other
5. Anti-Christian
6. Anti-capitalism (pro-crony capitalism)
7. Pro-illegal immigration
8. Pro-abortion

the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border,
____________________________________

When did that happen ???

I know there are illegal aliens coming through our southern border and causing an invasion crisis

but why would immigrants arriving here be said to cause a ‘crisis’ ???

and why would immigrants need more rights than they already have ???

When the decision is announced, it will "increase the angry reactions from Republicans," Pfeiffer said.

Given that the regime is so out of touch I wonder if they have even considered that this just might increase the angry reactions from non-Republicans too?
