Fox: Obama May Bypass Congress to Let Illegals Stay

Fox: Obama May Bypass Congress to Let Illegals Stay

Thursday, 24 Jun 2010 10:17 PM Article Font Size

The Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security can unilaterally grant legal status on a mass basis to illegal immigrants, according to Fox News.

The source for this bombshell – which could ignite a national uproar given that a majority supports tougher laws against illegals – is an unidentified former Bush administration official who spoke with at least three people involved in those talks.

The issue was raised publicly by eight Republican senators who wrote to the White House on Monday to complain that they had heard the administration was readying a "Plan B" in case a comprehensive immigration reform bill cannot win enough support to clear Congress, according to Fox.

The White House would not confirm or deny the claim. But the former Bush official said the discussions are real.

"The administration at the very minimum is studying legal ways to legalize people without having to go through any congressional debate about it," the source said, calling the senators' claim credible. "Whether somebody pulls the trigger on that, that's another issue."

The senators -- Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; David Vitter, R-La.; Jim Bunning, R-Ky.; Saxby Chambliss, Ga.; Johnny Isakson, R-Ga.; James Inhofe, R-Okla.; and Thad Cochran, R-Miss. -- claimed in their letter that the administration was looking at extending what is known as deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens in the United States.

Obama is too much of a PR nervous nitwit to pull this.....I think
Obama knows what something like this would implement within
the majority of Americans, fear.
Fear of their President.
If....If something like this was tried......The Secret Service wouldnt have the
ability to stop the consequences.

Just loading the mags. Does anyone have a speed loader for an HK 308 mag? Vaq we are being controlled by 20% of the nation against our will. Only 20% of our legal citizens consider themselves asses while the majority are conservative.

This is total bs

this president is hell bent on destroying America. Don't believe for one min this couldn't happen. Look how he passed health care

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

by attempted presidential decree or executive order, or by directing the Department of Home Security to "grant" status [in the absence of DHS legal authority to do so] would IMO, be impeachable offenses, which could be enjoined by Federal Court action, and then tied up in litigation beyond that president's term of office.

I think someone is pulling our collective legs on this one, although I could not find anything in either truthorfiction or snopes about it.
