    <p>Under the president's new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.</p> <p>President Obama's temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare's health exchanges.</p>

    Addressing the nation last Thursday, President Obama sought to justify his misreading of the Constitution by unilaterally granting legal protection to 5 million illegal immigrants. In this, he reminded me of what Richard Nixon told David Frost in a 1977 interview. The exchange is worth recalling: "FROST: So what in a sense you're saying is that there are certain situations ... where the president can decide that it's in the best interests of the nation or something, and do something illegal. NIXON: Well, when the president does it that means that it is not illegal. FROST: By definition. NIXON: Exactly....

    Past and perhaps future presidential hopeful Mitt Romney came to Chicago last night and, in blunt and sometimes surprisingly candid comments, acted like someone who probably won't run again but is leaving the door open in the apparent hope that his party might call. In a speech and question-and-answer session with the Chicago/Midwest chapter of the Turnaround Management Association, the man who lost to Chicago's Barack Obama in 2012 says he's "not planning" to seek the 2016 nomination—language that politicians frequently use to suggest they haven't decided but are keeping their options open.

Should U.S. taxpayers be expected to finance millions of the 12 million uneducated, unskilled, and often un-American illegal immigrants? I can defend the position that we should not finance legal immigrants? With Obama’s legalization of at least five million illegal aliens, he will turn America into a banana republic—without bananas. While many of the aliens covered are decent, hardworking people, many are not. I think this tragic immigration policy will create political, financial, and cultural anarchy.

    Obama’s illegal alien amnesty is just going to be an open door. It’s his DREAMER amnesty on a much bigger scale.The infrastructure isn’t there to process and check all these applications. Congress won’t be allocating money for an illegal unilateral amnesty (which sets them up to be blamed for the consequences of Obama’s illegal actions) so the whole thing will be an open door for just about anyone trying to get through. The political debate over Obama’s unilateral immigration actions is obscuring the more basic question of whether the federal government is actually up to the task of handling...

    Take him to court. That’s what the Republicans in Congress should do about Barack Obama’s executive actions on illegal immigration. Some member of the House or Senate should file suit in federal court seeking an injunction on the grounds that the actions are a clear violation of the Constitution, which authorizes the Congress to establish a “uniform rule of naturalization.” The Constitution gives matters of immigration to the Congress – the people’s branch of government – and a president is violating the Constitution when he abrogates a congressional action on immigration. It’s really very simple. And it’s not about illegal...

That statement is untrue, because I, for one, do not know or believe that our immigration system is broken. We have the most generous legal-immigration system in the world. Each year it admits more legal permanent-resident immigrants with a clear path to full citizenship than all the rest of the world’s nations combined. We have an immigration system that’s worthy of our nation of...

    The executive order, which President Obama has issued, granting amnesty to millions of individuals now residing illegally in our country, should make clear the profound disregard our president has for American voters, our constitution, and our two-party system. It might be possible to justify this action if it was addressing a national emergency of utmost urgency or clearly reflected the priorities and wishes of the American people. But neither is the case. Republicans just won a decisive election, giving them control of both houses of congress, interpreted uniformly as a repudiation of the president and his agenda. To totally disregard...

But the actual policy memo makes clear that “DHS will direct all of its enforcement resources at pursuing” people who are “national security threats, serious criminals, and recent border crossers.”In other words, there will be one group, estimated at 4 million or so, who...

    Along with his more sensationalized executive order granting some illegal immigrants a chance to stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation, President Barack Obama quietly ended a controversial program on Thursday that had deported 283,000 of them after they were arrested for crimes other than border-crossing. The Secure Communities program has been in place in limited form since 2006, and expanded nationwide in 2008. It allowed local law enforcement to hold arrestees and convicts 48 hours after they were officially bailed or released, if they were in the county illegally, so federal agents could pick them up and start...

    There’s a lesson from President Obama’s first term that he should have learned long ago. It’s simple: On an issue that affects many millions of Americans, it’s best—even necessary—to have bipartisan support in Congress. Going forward in a purely partisan fashion is bound to cause national discord, increase polarization, and heighten distrust in Washington. Worse still, it means the issue will be controversial for years to come. The enduring unpopularity of Obamacare—indeed, the Republican commitment to repeal it—is an example of what can happen when bipartisanship is spurned. In this case, Obama and congressional Democrats made no effort to attract...

Rather than speculate about what Obama would say in His November 20th address and Royal Decree, also known as executive order, I wrote After reading and interpreting copies of Obama’s address and His Royal Decree, I will try to analyze His Gruberings. Like many, I had expected Obama to issue an executive order, in contradiction of His many previous acknowledgments that He lacks the authority to deal with immigration that way.

    If I understood the President correctly the 4.4 million immigrants who just got their “get out of jail card” are no longer considered illegal. They are simply called the UNDOCUMENTED. The President, as usual, referenced a young woman who had been in the US illegally, I mean UNDOCUMENTED, since she was 4 years old. Apparently Mom and Dad were also illegal - oops - UNDOCUMENTED. She is now a college student working on her 3rd degree. A very admirable story. She beat the system and now can come out of the shadows. She will not be able to vote, for now, nor...

    I am in need of some information that will help many of us here especially over those tough family interactions during Thanksgiving and Christmas. We know Stinky Reid scuttled many bills on immigration reform...amongst other bills...we also know the ministry of truth (aka MSM) has kept this a secret. The Left and Caesar 0bummer claim they had to do the EO because Republicans gave them nothing to work with...a Joe Wilson screaming lie! Long preamble...stay with me...what I need - and I think many of us here need - is such a list perhaps with thumbnails of the bills /proposed...

    Patriot Action Network ^ | November 21, 2014 | Eric Odom
    Obama's Executive Immigration Order was a brilliant move on his part. Politically, that is. Obama needed to cater to the radical anti-border crowd, but he also needed to limit the legal challenges that would have mounted from all directions with a blanket amnesty. So what did he do? Nothing. No seriously, Obama didn't really do much of anything on the action front. He basically proclaimed that our government (his government these days) will no longer deport illegal immigrants. Obama made it sound like he was doing a lot. He made it sound like he was giving the radical amnesty groups...

    Columbus Dispatch ^ | 11-21-14 | Darrel Rowland
    BOCA RATON, Fla. — A little more than four years ago, John Kasich told The Dispatch, “One thing that I don’t want to reward is illegal immigration.” He called for a comprehensive federal immigration law protecting America’s borders. And he reiterated his longtime support for amending the U.S. Constitution to end birthright citizenship for children born here to illegal immigrants. But now, as his fellow Republican governors loudly voice many of the same sentiments, Kasich is urging them to ratchet down the rhetoric and try to work with President Barack Obama to solve one of the nation’s longstanding vexing problems....

    GOP's Sessions: Obama's amnesty 'worse than you think'WASHINGTON – Phone lines are melting on Capitol Hill with outraged citizens calling their elected representatives to complain about the president’s order effectively granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. A number of Capitol Hill offices closed today for the Thanksgiving recess, but aides report hearing from upset voters even at the offices in lawmakers’ home states. The offices of Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, confirmed a flood of complaints, and an aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., told WND, “We are getting tons of phone calls to block executive amnesty.” “I...
