The only executive action that I would support from this president is his resignation.

oh hell no, his executive action on illegal criminal immigration would be to open the border for all to come in.

From his most recent actions it appears that way.

This is a disservice to all that try to follow our laws and it is unfair competition to the poor and minorities looking for higher wages.

President Obama has not acted in the best interest of people that he swore the oath to serve. He marches to the beat of his 'preferred' special interest groups. Unfortunately there is not any difference from the Republican side of the isle. We have only a few congressional representative that actually work to uphold our laws and support the will of the people (of the US and not the rest of the world).

BO is more worried about the Hispanic vote than protecting the United States. The United States that aren't so united anymore with so much illegal immigration and a 20 year rolling block of people looking to cash in here yet refuse to assimilate. Looking for a better life..........at someone else's expense.

Hispanics don't tend to turn out in large numbers at the polls and those who do mostly vote Democrat anyway so I don't know what they are worried about. Besides, our elected officials are suppose to look out for the best interests of the American people not illegal foreigners and their supporters.

You may get for what you wish for

The problem with that is nobody knows what he will do next . Is he going to give mass amnesty to every person residing in the US illegally? He basically gave, and is giving a free ride on our dollar to every illegal mother and child that has come up from Central America since last year. The same applies to the rest of the people here illegally from other areas of the world so its not just a South of the border issue. I would be okay with the something along the idea of the Dream Act as it benefits both sides.

I have a couple of friends on disability, both American Citizens, they both receive about $1000 a month to live on, plus a small amount for food stamps. They both have had their food stamps cut in the last year. There is only so much money to go around and poor Americans have to suffer to support people moving here illegally.
