A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
EO. he doesn't have the power to do what he did. that is why we have a constitution to prevent him from doing exactly that.
which is give them legal status. he doesn't have the authority to do that.
Again you are comparing individual discretion against blanket policy. The cop who busts you for speeding has the discretion to let you off for REASON. Like your wife is giving birth and you need to get to the hospital, or whatever. A cop can decide to not prosecute for marijuana possession for many reasons based on the facts of THAT particular incident involving that particular set of circumstances.
It is not a blanket pardon.
You still have not provided Obama's alleged parameters as published...and when you say "Obama says" I hear wind whistling though a coal mine, they man says a lot and very, very little of that is even reality...."If you like your plan..." kind of makes the words out of his mouth into a kind of head fart
"Small people talk about people, average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas" Eleanor Roosevelt
Now here is the thing. We expect people who live in this country to play by the rules. We expect those who cut the line will not be unfairly rewarded. So we’re going to offer the following deal: If you’ve with been in America more than five years. If you have children who are American citizens or illegal residents. If you register, pass a criminal background check and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes, you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. That’s what this deal is.
Now let’s be clear about what it isn’t. This deal does not apply to anyone who has come to this country recently. It does not apply to anyone who might come to America illegally in the future. It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive. Only Congress can do that. All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.

Prosecutorial discretion may be exercised at any stage of an immigration case. Specifically, prosecutorial discretion may be exercised when deciding whether to: issue a detainer; initiate removal proceedings; focus enforcement resources on particular violations or conduct; stop, question, or arrest a particular person; detain or release someone on bond, supervision, or personal recognizance; settle or dismiss a removal case; stay a final order of removal; pursue an appeal; and/or execute a removal order. Examples of the favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion in the immigration context include a grant of deferred action; a decision to terminate or administratively close removal proceedings; a stay of removal; or a decision not to issue a charging document in the first place.
