Boy, are we ever in for it. These poor, ignorant people breed like rabbits, and they're coming for all the handouts and freebies.

Kill Mexican foreign aid as well as tourism and I'll show you a Mexican government willing to build the wall for you.....take that money away and use it build a wall....it's a start....that, or use dogs and land mines...either way, I don't care.....it would stop the next wave of Democrat voters, the left's ultimate goal.

The executive action that is being discussed will only grant temporary residency via deferred enforcement to illegals who have US citizen children AND who have been in the US for 5 (possibly 10) years. So the hordes coming across will have to wait a while. Of course, they may come anyway fueled by hope that there will someday by an actual bill and they could gain legal residency or citizenship.

Tempting, isn't it? Dogs, land mines, shoot on sight (probably the only thing that will really work, and isn't feasible).

Precisely. But it looks like that's exactly what's going to happen.

Congress is going to have to call in the military and also refuse to fund anything.
Now that I've thought more about it, it makes sense for him (in his mind) to do it now.

The midterms are over, the Democrats lost big-time...no more mid-terms to fight before the end of his presidency.

If he does it now (as in before the end of the year), he both avoids pushback from a Republican Senate and leaves a lot of time between shamnesty and the 2016 elections, when people hopefully will have forgotten all about it.

Sickening.

It is sickening--but there may also be consequences that even this child-president doesn't foresee.

So you agree that this action will encourage more waves of illegals?

Why would any POTUS, who has the interests of the USA in mind, want to dangle a carrot that will cause "hordes" to run for the border? Is this what Obama wants?

Does he hate the USA (especially the border patrol)?

Wouldn't it make sense to do and say things that send a deterrent message?

This may be Obama's dumbest move yet... or smartest if he is actually trying to destroy the country.

It's all about securing the future of the Democratic party ... the more you let in on your watch, the more votes you can count in election years.

Well there are more than 150 million Central Americans and a large percentage of them are watching Obama's actions closely. If Obama permits those illegals already in the US to remain, then you can expect millions more to cross the border, creating a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions.
