PLEASE show me where the GOP is anti-immigrant. Just because they'd like this president to uphold the law of the land? That's not anti-immigrant at all - it's anti ILLEGAL immigrant.

Just remember your last comment when Obama's kicked to curb in November. Then, you will have no right to complain when the new president starts using HIS powers to implement change. We live in a republic, not a dictatorship. Congress and the President are EQUAL branches.

This isn't being done by Executive Order, it's being done thorugh the DHS in policy change. They must first be granted deferred action in order to apply for work authorization. The issue I would think is that an IJ over rules DHS, and if these persons are brought up through Secure Communities, they will receive orders of deportation. DHS is only changing this policy and it only works on those few that get arrested for public protesting. Those arrested for crimes and checked through jail still get placed into secure communities.

It doesn't matter what issue it is. In fact, I think some of Rubio's idea makes sense.

The outrage is about the way Obama has done ANOTHER end run around Congress. The arrogance of that man is unbelievable.

Obama is destroying the middle class by allowing 800,000 more people to compete for jobs we don't have. I surely hope I don't have to hear about republicans and the middle class any more. Watch the income disparity now!!!

And all for votes. He sure is watching out for this country.

In a pigs eye. But some of us knew what Obam was going to be like, did not take a rocket scientist to figure the man out.

What is this really about, helping the economy, or helping him get more votes! I know plenty of young teens right now, that can't find a job, now what will happen.

This was an act defeated by Congress, and yet this "president" wants to bring it back and let it become law, anyway. It should be null and void.

By supporting illegals, Barry is showing this: He does not support protecting our borders. He wants us to be more vulnerable. With this course of action, he encourages crime, and, therefore, he supports terrorism.

End of story, folks. This joke of a politician has got to go.

His Character and his Policies have dictated his fate

Barry Soetoro (a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama), who is, after all, merely a fool has proven by his
entitlement mentality and narcissism that he is a clear and present danger to our country and the
American way of life

His actions will always speak louder then the broken promises of deflection that Alinsky taught his community organizers !

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity . . . . What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving . . . . The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else . . . .. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation . . . .You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

For all practical purposes this means that 800,000 more American citizens just became unemployed because of the actions of this would be Fuehrer. Congress may stop this act of a egomaniac, already there has been a huge backlash and major opposition. There could be a bright side to all this; while Obama may pick up a few more Hispanic votes, he may lose far more votes from non Hispanic whites that were only lukewarm supporters or were undecided, this latest act may push them into the Romney camp. See this as a huge political blunder on the part of Obama, he is such an ideologue that he neither perceives or cares about the wishes of the citizens.
