    But it was an amnesty, and he signed it into law. He could have, but did not veto it.

    Unlike Obama's executive order, it was legal.

    Wait, what? He can't sign it himself? Does he have someone do it for him?

    Whether or not Obama's action is legal may be a matter for debate. As we've gone over before, he can undoubtedly issue a pardon. Completely within his Constitutional power as President. How far he goes, or tried to go will determine the legality. WE don't know what that will be yet.

    I suspect, personally, that this will be another empty threat from Obama.

    As I've pointed out, he can't pardon illegal aliens.

    Exactly--Democrats and Tip O'Neill cut Reagan a huge amount of slack with Iran/Contra don't you think?
    Just as Obama did with Cheney on Iraq-2!
    And what thanks did Obama get--Fast and Furious shoved up his ass as fast and furiously as GOPs could !

    Re: Krauthammer: 'Impeachable Offense'

    Are you aware of the pardon powers of the President?
    Dems are still pissed at their own Clinton for pardoning Marc Rich.
    While Bush-43 refused to pardon Cheney's buddy Scooter Libby--to his credit .

    I do not think it will be an empty threat.
    The President will keep every illegal who is related to an American citizen.
    Who is in good graces with the law--who has a job and can pay taxes.
    The word means-testing comes to mind--as it normally does for me on issues like public pensions .

    I understand that a pardon isn't citizenship.

    Let's see what happens in court on that one.
    wonder why you don't hear your GOP threatening to go to court ?
