Yes, by his own words he is breaking the law
No, perfectly legal
Doing same as Regan and Bush did
The people might very well love it, but if they were smart they would realize you can't be for the anchor baby amendment and immigration law at the same time.
One question came to mind was how is an illegal alien going to prove they have been living in the US five or more years ago and the Feds verify what is submitted is true . They are undocumented, may be using false ssn or id, etc. With the priority shift to felons, etc, I see no real advantage for one to come forward. The Feds will not be targeting the working "family member" anyway.
imo, The EO is poorly thought out.
Bill Clinton's insult-laced message from the past is a good one for his fellow Democrat Obama today: "It's the economy, stupid".
Young voters aren't going to forget.
Neither are the older voters .. like the carpenter in his forties who was replaced by three wage-slave illegal aliens Obama just pardoned without requiring they pay compensatory restitution to the Americans whose jobs they stole .. or the warehouse supervisor in his fifties who has his wage scale and purchasing power plummet from the influx of millions of Obamnesty recipients.
Obamnesty is going to harm scores of millions of always-resident American citizens ..
.. And, they can vote.
For those who hadn't voted much in the past, oh, you can bet your bottom dollar that this will bring them to the voting booth in droves ..
.. To vote out all of Obama's fellow liberal Democrats in an effort to right this Obamnesty travesty!
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.
However, even if you only had securing the border and enforcement of the laws on the books now would be a great help to fighting illegal immigration.
