REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Could expanding work permits be among President Barack Obama’s goals as he tries to pass executive actions on immigration?

A Politico news service report says this is likely the case.

Senior White House officials are reportedly having discussions with business leaders from technology and agriculture sectors to discuss ways on how to further extend relief to immigrants in America. Expectations surrounding President Barack Obama’s plans to issue executive orders on immigration initially focused on deportation relief.

But now, Obama’s executive orders could reportedly include: allowing spouses of workers with high-tech visas to work, recapturing green cards that go unused, and making technical changes to dual-purpose visa applications.

It remains unclear if President Obama will issue executive orders on immigration before the November midterm elections.

    Obama will issue executive order on immigration before November election.This will provoke unrest, chaos, riots, so that he has reason to declare Martial Law. Mga illegal alien ang kawawa pag nag Martial law, maraming itatapon sa basurahan(tawag diyan-salvage) dahil kayo mga illegal ang pinagmulaan nang gulo.Mga legal American, halos lahat may baril,at mga Pulis, Federal agents ay pagod na sa inyo. Bumalik nalang kayo sa Pinas.

    It’s OK with me, but before you do that Obama you should look around and see if the Americans have jobs first before you talk about expand work visa program for immigration. Lets say the Americans come first before other people from other country.
