Obama: Immigration Action 'Soon'

That's what he always says.


President Obama vowed Friday to announce executive actions to address immigration "soon," though he did not specifically commit to moving before the November elections.

The president said he has received some of the proposals and recommendations for executive actions developed by Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

"I suspect that on my flight back this will be part of my reading, taking a look at some of the specifics we've looked at, and I will be making an announcement soon," Obama told reporters at a press conference following the NATO summit in Wales.

  1. Government by fiat.

    1. Dalmia will be happy.

  2. I still don’t get why any organization cynical enough to call itself “United We Dream” would have a problem with waiting until the day after the election for blanket amnesty.

    1. Okay, the O-nnouncement is out this morning: no Amnestation Without Electation!

  3. If he does this before the election, it means he either has completely lost his political mind, or really hates the Dems in Congress for some reason.

    Given the man’s vanity, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s telling the Dems if they criticize him too much in their campaigns, he’s going to activate the doomsday device of an amnesty EO.

  4. He’s not going to do anything but obfuscate until after the elections.

    1. Your roommate’s ex-wife can kiss my ass.

  6. If something is so unpopular that Obama is scared to do it prior to an election, shouldn’t that mean in a democracy he logically shouldn’t do it?

  7. That didn’t take long.

    President Obama has abandoned his pledge to reform U.S. immigration policy by the end of summer and will instead wait until after the November congressional elections, The Associated Press reports Saturday.

    Obama concluded that using executive action to circumvent Congress during the campaign season would politicize the issue and hurt future efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

    Hilarious. What he says on Friday has no bearing on what he’s doing Saturday.

  8. The Progressive becomes upset when you accuse him of his liberal views being a sign of a mental disorder. Well, check your talking points Mr. Progressive. “An illegal alien isn’t really illegal.”

    Let’s see what are your other defenses for the illegal invader who breaks our laws crossing our border in the night.

    “You’re a racist.” Ah, brilliant. That does take some thought doesn’t it? No matter what, no matter how illogical you are shown to be you can always throw out the race card.

    “Where did your ancestors come from?” Another well thought out adage of anti reason Mr. Progressive. You see that bait and switch is ridiculous as well. My ancestors came from Poland. Legally.

    “They were here first.” Well not really. You see the ones left after the Mexican-American war stayed and generations passed. The illegal came from Mexico. He wasn’t here first.

    “No human is illegal.” I have no comment for that one. Check the stupid definition in Websters.

    If we continue this line of thought we will fall as a nation as my own fiction predicts as no nation that leaves borders open will survive. When we return to reason and common sense and ignore the above imbecilic arguments only then will we have a prayer of restoring America.
