The president's plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.
But the most controversial pertain to the millions who could get a deportation reprieve under what is known as "deferred action."
The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children -- but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.
The latter could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.
Critics in the Senate say those who receive deferred action, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, receive work authorization in the United States, Social Security numbers and government-issued IDs.
Another portion that is sure to cause consternation among anti-"amnesty" lawmakers is a plan to expand deferred action for young people. In June 2012, Obama created such a program for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, entered before June 2007 and were under 31 as of June 2012. The change would expand that to cover anyone who entered before they were 16, and change the cut-off from June 2007 to Jan. 1, 2010. This is estimated to make nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants eligible.
One of the architects for the president's planned executive actions at DHS is Esther Olavarria, the late Sen. Ted Kennedy's former top immigration lawyer. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/11/12/source-obama-to-announce-10-point-immigration-plan-via-exec-action-as-early-as/
The ghost of Ted Kennedy haunts the U.S. again.
Well, if Obama wants to kill the Democrat party in 2016, this surely will do it. What will Hillary do? Embrace Obama's immigration plan and face the wrath of the voters or go against the voters and the majority of voters see right through her? Of course, the liberal media will not ask Hillary this question, if she allows the press within 1/4 of a mile from her.
This is a horrible plan because if Obama gives a pay raise for immigration officers, then others in the U.S. government will demand their pay raises.
So, we don't have a secure border, we don't enforce immigration laws and we allow illegals who commit crimes while in the U.S. to stay.
Hell the illegals got it pretty good now, why would they want to participate in another government plan?
