Source: Obama to announce 10-point immigration plan via exec action as early as next week | Fox News
EXCLUSIVE: President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action -- including suspending deportations for millions -- as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.First, is this constitutional and legal to do this without Congressional involvement?Critics in the Senate say those who receive deferred action, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, receive work authorization in the United States, Social Security numbers and government-issued IDs.
Another portion that is sure to cause consternation among anti-"amnesty" lawmakers is a plan to expand deferred action for young people. In June 2012, Obama created such a program for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, entered before June 2007 and were under 31 as of June 2012. The change would expand that to cover anyone who entered before they were 16, and change the cut-off from June 2007 to Jan. 1, 2010. This is estimated to make nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants eligible.
Second, what percentage of Americans actually want Obama to do this?
Third, what is the motivating factor behind doing this without any input from Congress?
And last, how is it that only Fox News was able to get these details? Lack of reporting skills, or an organized distraction from the mainstream media?
