If this is true, can he be impeached? As head of the executive branch, he's the countries "top cop". If he not only refuses to enforce existing laws, but actually uses the threat of not doing his job as blackmail to get his way, it would seem like it.

The White House denied the claim on Monday. Spokesman Bill Burton and Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer both said Kyl "knows" Obama did not make that comment to him in their meeting.
"The president didn't say that and Senator Kyl knows it," Pfeiffer said in a written statement. "There are more resources dedicated toward border security today than ever before, but, as the president has made clear, truly securing the border will require a comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system."

So many told me that Obama would be about his agendas only, think this is one of those ignorant agendas of his. And if this is true, shame on this Preisdent.

What's your definition of amnesty? Start thinking for yourself and stop believing the fox news and anti-immigrant talking points.
