During an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the Obama administration was getting impatient with Congress.
“[W]e’re not just going to sit around and wait interminably for Congress,” he explained. “We’ve been waiting a year already. The president has tasked his Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson with reviewing what options are available to the president, what is at his disposal using his executive authority to try to address some of the problems that have been created by our broken immigration system.”
Earnest added that, although Obama was exploring executive action, it was “not a substitute for robust Congressional action” on immigration reform.
“That’s why we’re trying to focus on getting that done,” he concluded.
Obama has been heavily criticized after his 2012 executive decision to defer the deportations of some young illegal immigrants, which critics argue was a key incentive for more children to cross the border illegally.
Flying planeloads of "children" to Massachusetts? No photos allowed.
If this effing turd could read, he'd know we already have immigration reform laws that have NOT been enforced. Obama wants to destroy America. It's our turn to turn that back on him.
You know, if you don't care to follow the laws in this country, you can move to North Korea or even Cuba. What I would love to see is that you ignorant Democrats, clean up the problems that you are responsible for causing, like this influx of tens of thousands of illegal children at the border because Obama said they would not be dported if they showed up. Better yet, how about explaining to all of the police officers widows how their husbands were murdered by illegals who shouldn't be in our country, or how about all of the crime victims resulting because Obama decided he would not enforce the law and deport those in this country illegally? Every action has a responsibility. These laws were in place because elected congressmen enacted them and the former president's signed them into law. But you see this President is smarter than anybody else and thinks that he can do no wrong, which is exactly why he will go down in history as the worst President ever, because of his self-serving arrogance.
I'm sorry. I thought that was congress's job, not the press secretaries or the despot's.
Oh really? No time to follow the law? You are in the wrong business, buddy.

According to Rush's program a day or so ago, he read from a publication dated JANUARY 29, 2014, for an ad for the Federal Government, for transportation people, for the months of JUNE and JULY, for "the transportation of " unescorted minors" from infants to teenagers, in the Southern Texas area.
Knowing how the government works, THAT AD WAS "ORDERED" IN PROBABLY SEPTEMBER OR OCTOBER!!! This has been in the works for a LONG time!
Our Immigration system is NOT broken it just needs to be ENFORCED.... but the evil won't. Time for war.... time to go to the border and start the shooting.

This mutt is making Carney look good ! Don't people get fed up protecting this guys corrupt ass?
The president does not have the right to make laws. I am fed up with his thinking he is a king. He should go back to Kenya and I am sure he will be very welcome there.
