This is a giant slap in the face to all those who did the right thing to become legal citizens.

This is surely the ghost of Ronald Regan rearing it's ugly head once again.
I surely hope someone in Congress has the balls too stand up and fight to get this stupid jerk out of the white house, and soon.

It is obvious, he is not, I repeat, is not upholding the constitution of the United States, and needs to be removed from office immediately.
I am so disgusted with this Bast..d.

I never liked this jerk, and presently he has done a fantastic job of showing me, and the rest of the people who really care about this country what a real a$$hole he is.
Get him removed before he does any more damage.

Bob.

I think its really much like that red line. That is why I had to wander if he actually hasn't listen last weeks. Its more like a wall put up on any reform. He and Democrats own it and will have to make it work ;republicans have no skin in game with this move. Reagan did same thing its often pointed out; but the difference is that he had a agreement and did it to make sure those effected where not caught in middle before passage.

If republicans fight Obama over this like they have already claimed they republicans will start to die off they will be unelectable for the next 10 to 14 yrs and next 2 presidents will be democrat.
Most Americans want these people deported. We don't care about pulling families apart. They broke the law and the need to pay the consequences. Many of these people work hard (no one disputes that), but they have many children who get taxpayer benefits and we have to pay for their schooling (which includes ESL classes). Deport them!

I agree, but this tyrant has seriously overstepped his authority.

Time to fight back with, legal challenges, defunding and impeachment for dereliction of duty.

Nah, that's the political trap Obama hopes R's will step into. The time will come, it always does and they did it to themselves.

This could very well be what it may be coming too.
As far as immigration is concerned,one phrase becomes an oxymoron.
They all speak of "comprehensive" immigration.
I have to wonder if any, including this a$$hole president, know what that word means.

Comprehensive means to understand.
What part of immigration is understandable?
As far as I am concerned, their is only one part of immigration that is comprehensive, and that is, obey and enforce our immigration laws that are in place, and round up all these illegals and send them packing.
Now, any fool, including those in Washington certainly can understand that phrase.

Now before we get into a pissin match with any one here, for those who say they can't be rounded up, and it would be too expensive, that is bull.
It can be done, and the money spent on these illegals presently could be used to round them up and send them home to their own countries.
What is lacking here is the desire by government to do this.

Bob.

Republicans are under no obligation to pass immigration reform.

Congress cannot and should not be blackmailed to pass the reform. Which is exactly what the President is doing right now: "You don't want to do it? You better, because if not, I'm going to force something you'll hate even more down your throat".
.

False. The traditional Republicans like Boehner and McConnell would back immigration reform but they have an albatross around their necks which is the base and the teabaggers in congress. Those illegal immigrants already have jobs and the Chamber and its member businesses do not want these people deported. That's because green is KING.
A few years ago, I had a sprinkler installed. The owner was a white guy but the workers were all Mexican. Only one of the workers spoke anything close to English. They did a great job and the owner got his check. No way Repugs really want these people deported.

By the way, Abbott's wife is Latina and will be the first first such lady of Texas. So Abbott is just grandstanding.
