    Obama to take executive action on immigration

    President Barack Obama said Monday he was starting "a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress," adding that he directed his team to recommend steps he can take this summer and that he would then act on those steps "without delay."[Original story moved at 2:48 p.m. ET]
    President Barack Obama plans to take executive action on immigration reform after House Speaker John Boehner told him last week the House won't vote on a comprehensive bill this year, a White House official said.
    Obama will make a statement on immigration at the White House later Monday to announce some steps, including a request for emergency funds as the United States grapples with a surge of undocumented children and adults crossing the border from Mexico.
    According to the official, Obama will order a shift in security resources to border regions and call for additional action he can take "without Congress but within his existing authorities to fix as much of our broken immigration system as we can."

    Hope Obama doesn't say "enough is enough" about the right to vote.

    Time to define the power of EOs, folks. Past time.

    yep can't for the lawsuit and the 9-0 unconstitutional ruling for the supreme court as well.

    How was this guy a constitutional lawyer again? there is no way he was a constitutional lawyer. no wonder he won't release he college record people would see the C's and D's he got in law school.

    The president doesn't have power to make or change law.
    where is the vote for removal from office at.

    Obama is not king not matter how much he thinks he is.

    It's already defined in the constitution. he obviously doesn't know what that is.

    this is exactly why all these kids and their families are flocking to the US.
    He says not to bring them that they won't be accepted lol yet goes and does this.

    Boehner said he can't get it done. It needs to be done. Obama should press forward and let the chips fall where they're going to fall. If the Supreme Court slaps him down, then that's how it's going to be. At least he tried.

    You do realize the US is not a dictatorship?

    Furthermore I love how progressives argue against voter ID laws yet have no problem with Obama using executive orders while trumping their representation.....

    sorry the president isn't above the law. the constitution is there for a reason. we are a land of laws not do what the hell you want and hope you don't get caught.
    The should nix this before it even starts.

    He has no more power to change immigration law than the man and the moon exists.

    we have 11m people living here that don't belong here and consume more resources than they give back.
    Our stupid govenor just signed a bill allowing undocumented kids to get the same tuition rates as legal kids which means less money for kids legally allowed in the US.

    why? it's election year and he is trying to be the last dirt bag that lost.

    As long as the president enforces existing laws, whatever he does is within the law such as moving resources around, I don't have a problem with it. If the phrase "as I can on my own," means within existing law, what is the problem? If it means creating his own laws then he has overstepped. In our system congress writes the laws, the administration enforces them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
