    "In his statement, Obama announced he was ordering a shift in security resources to border regions, and he promised the additional action he can take "without Congress but within his existing authorities to fix as much of our broken immigration system as we can.""

They were behind Obamacare all the way.

    Is that better?
    What have they stopped him from doing? They haven't taken him on over his role in Benghazi, and they should. They haven't taken him on over telling states to ignore DEA laws, and they should. In fact Congress has done NOTHING about Obama's 64 impeachable offenses listed in the link below.. So I'd say that your statement is entirely correct.

    They can be, if they're unlawful, or unconstitutional.

    The establishment GOP have been acting like clowns for a while, so yeah, once the voting base gets fed up they will start voting libertarian/tea party..

    It doesn't matter because the progressives who vote progressive will never change so it is a waste of time.

    Re: Obama to take executive action on immigration

    Sounds like some people in this thread need to re-read what an executive order is.

    ThisNation.com--What is an Executive Order?

    Executive Orders (EOs) are legally binding orders given by the President, acting as the head of the Executive Branch, to Federal Administrative Agencies. Executive Orders are generally used to direct federal agencies and officials in their execution of congressionally established laws or policies. However, in many instances they have been used to guide agencies in directions contrary to congressional intent.

    Not all EOs are created equal. Proclamations, for example, are a special type of Executive Order that are generally ceremonial or symbolic, such as when the President declares National Take Your Child To Work Day. Another subset of Executive Orders are those concerned with national security or defense issues. These have generally been known as National Security Directives. Under the Clinton Administration, they have been termed "Presidential Decision Directives."

    Executive Orders do not require Congressional approval to take effect but they have the same legal weight as laws passed by Congress. The President's source of authority to issue Executive Orders can be found in the Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution which grants to the President the "executive Power." Section 3 of Article II further directs the President to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." To implement or execute the laws of the land, Presidents give direction and guidance to Executive Branch agencies and departments, often in the form of Executive Orders.

    For example, the folks who are whining, "Dictator!

    It's kinda weak if you ask me but whatever. Myself, I'm glad to see Obama growing a nutsack and telling these obstructionists to take a hike. It's long overdue.

    Just my two-cents though.
    What's your comment about the Obama administration telling America that our borders were secured not to long ago ?

    Just another lie from the Obama White House ?

    Maybe we need to put Obama and his entire administration under oath any time they open their forked tongue mouths. I'm sure articles of impeachment would have to be drawn up in less than a week.

    I think Boehner made it clear and talked for the majority of Americans, Obama is a ****ing liar and can't be trusted to enforce any new immigration reform act.

    Sending interior resources to the border, a border Obama already declared secured.

    If you'll recall, the people overwhelmingly voted against the Liberal agenda in 2010. Elections have consequences...
