Why else do you think that is why Obama is doing this now?

Yes -- obviously it's for a whole lot of votes he expects to have from this.

I think Obama is counting on the unemployed Americans still voting for him because they will like his expanded welfare programs but at any rate, he expects the gain in votes to greatly outweigh any loss.

He knows there are many people living here who really don't give a damn at all about jobs for Americans, or about better wages for Americans. They don't care about Americans, they care about their own country of origin and getting unlimited immigration for the people of that country.

This apparently, is the absolute truth. Right now today, if it was a Castro running against our current President I'd have to think long and hard about who I would vote for.

This is the way it is now in the US.
They're going to rubber-stamp applications. So, even convicted felons won't have to worry.
