Obama delays executive order on immigration until after midterm

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – President Obama has pledged to issue new executive orders on immigration within the next three months.

Obama says it will happen between the November elections and the end of the year.

With the immigration reform bill stalled in the GOP led House of Representatives, Obama is reportedly granting legal status to more than 11 million undocumented immigrants.

Obama’s aides are saying that the president is putting off issuing immigration reform orders until after the November midterm elections, because immigration is a controversial political issue.

The president says fixing America’s broken immigration system will do the country much good.

“If we fix our broken immigration system, we won’t just prevent some of the challenges like the one we saw at part of the border this summer,” Obama said, “We’ll encourage the best and brightest from around the world to study here, stay here, and create jobs here.”

    It is obvious our liar in chief postponed this amnesty until after the election because it would devastate the demonsrats. I don’t care how the fool spins it, So get ready to have this shoved down our throats like it or not. There is no way legalizing illegals is good for Americans I don’t care how odumbo spins it, Common sense says otherwise.

    However where in the Constitution does it give the right to regulate immigration to the President. I am sick of these executive orders, all they do is turn the Presidency into a Dictatorship. Executive orders should never be able to usurp the authority of the other branches of Government.

    1986 IRCA: amnesty in exchange for tough border & penalties
    Rising levels of illegal immigration [led to] the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). It provided amnesty for 3 million illegal immigrants, in return for increased border security and penalties for companies “knowingly” hiring illegal immigrants. Aside from creating the H-2A visa for seasonal employment, IRCA failed to create new avenues for legal immigration. The combination of amnesty and inadequate avenues for legal immigration exacerbated the problem of illegal immigration.

    We have already been burned once by false promises of border security in exchange for tying security to other aspects of the immigration debate. President Reagan, in 1986, signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act, which legalized close to 3 million undocumented immigrants. The laws was supposed to be a comprehensive solution with provisions intended to clamp down on border security. These provisions were never enforced, and the subsequent explosion in illegal crossings has resulted in some 20 plus million illegal aliens living in the United States today. An estimated 2.8 million illegal immigrants are currently residing in Texas, compared with 1.8 million in 2000. In ten years, that represents an increase of 75 percent, or 120,000 persons each year coming to our state illegally.

    Reagan said : In 1986 I voted for the Simpson-Mazzoli immigration bill because we were told it would solve the problem of massive illegal immigration. In his diaries, President Ronald Reagan said he was going to sign the bill because we had to regain control of our borders. The Simpson-Mazzoli bill contained three promises:
    The government would make a concerted effort to control the borders.
    An effective employer verification program would ensure that only legal workers were hired.
    One-time amnesty would be granted for people illegally in the United States.
    All three promises were broken. The government has made no serious effort to control our borders. Employers continue knowingly to hire illegal immigrants without any real fear of punishment.
