Ever stop to think that the President wanted more enforcement not less?

Well, it's really not up to "what the president wants". He is the chief executive, who's job is to "faithfully execute" the laws passed by congress.

In the case of immigration, the laws are clear, and have been for many years. They're just not being enforced.

Didn't I hear the President swear a few days ago that he would "faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and...to the best of [his]ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States"?

The oath of office does not mean a thing to some people.

Maybe he had his fingers crossed...
