It is absolutely trueThat is simply untrue.
Undocumented aliens are ineligible for work authorization. Legal immigration benefits the economyAnd makes the current soft job market worse by introducing 5 million more low skilled into it...Yeah, doesn't sound like a benefit for Americans....Face it, it was a bald faced political move....The new congress will smack his hands....

BO constantly said while issuing his EO on immigration: the families shouldn't be broken up. That's not clarifying or electing to prosecute or not prosecute an existing law. That's BO's own sense of social justice that he's put into American law. I don't see that ability anywhere in The Constitution where the prez has that authority.
Don't get me wrong: I think the current system of immigration is unworkable. That doesn't give the president the right to selectively enforce the laws on the books because it fits his or view of social justice (as already stated above, thank you).
What gets lost in this debate is the following:
Why the immigrants are coming here?
Can we truly identify who they are?
Are they looking for work or to serve as productive members of society?
Who pays for their healthcare?
Who pays for their education?
These are a few of the reasons why immigration reform in the way that the president is doing it is resisted by many.
To the wise eye, the end game of the Democratic Party seems to be fundamentally changing the electoral makeup of the country to an uneducated, unskilled population incapable distinguishing political rhetoric from reality which exacerbates the issue of an increasing wealth gap and puts an unsustainable long-term burden on entitlement programs. I venture to say that if it weren't for the massive increases of entitlement spending since 1965, we would not be having this conversation as we would want people to be reunited with their families. We would want people to find a way to work and be prosperous. We would want people to support their families back home and take the lessons they had learned about what makes America so desirable back to their own countries. As it sits, both parties are greedy to the point of stupidity and are running us into the ground by not looking at the deeper issues.
