Seems as though the 'Emperor in Chief' is going to cast a constitutionally illegal shadow on the country tonight and break ties with his African-American constituency, maybe for good.

For decades, the black vote in the United States almost uniformly has gone to Democrats.

How’s that working out?

Black unemployment is twice the national average, poverty rates are higher than before Democrats offered “help,” and the education system fails a disproportionate number of black children. That’s what 50-plus years of blind voting loyalty to Democrats has earned.
And, thanks to those same Democrats and the nation’s first black president, it’s about to get a lot worse.

The POTUS is set to legalize upwards of 5 million illegal aliens, with the dream of granting amnesty and citizenship to 6 million to 25 million more, based on estimates and chain migration. These aren’t Ph.D.s with seed capital ready to start tech companies; they’re low- and no-skilled workers with limited English skills ready to take any job available, especially entry-level jobs.

After decades of embracing Democrats on a national and local level, the black community is disproportionately poor and, therefore, a higher percentage of the Americans likely to be competing for those entry-level jobs.

The Supreme Court may have to rule on this once it gets its hands of the briefs and it could occur very soon. Our government was established as a constitutional democracy with distinct duties between the branches. Congress makes the laws and the POTUS enforces them. Seems as though we now have a dictatorship. Everyone should be outraged over this

He is trying to create a whole new wave of Democratic voters. Simple.

I support immigration. Legal immigration. Illegal immigration is against the law even if you change the name to undocumented worker. Illegal immigrants should be deported and the people who knowingly hire them should be prosecuted.

The president's plan is unfair to the people who have applied for legal immigration status and completed the process.

In addition, the law needs to be changed from "anyone born in the US is a US citizen" to requiring that at least one of the parents must be a US citizen. Get rid of the concept of "anchor babies". It should be illegal for someone to sneak across the border, have a baby and expect to become a US citizen.

Fully agree Rotohead
Illegal is illegal and nothing he does or proclaims is going to alter that. He is going against his own words regarding his unlawful proclamation tonight.

Yes, we need to eliminate the 'anchor baby' law. Illegals tromp over the border, drop a baby and claim they are now citizens.

We need immigrants with skills and education, not more who are going to game the system to it's fullestt.

This is a way more complicated issue than just "they are illegal". People are not illegal. United States immigration law as it stands allows for some of the fewest legal immigrants of industrial nations. People would not cross the border illegally if jobs here were not thirsty for cheap labor. First let's acknowledge that fact. It's always the reaction to go after the weakest and last powerful it seems lately. I also do not remember this outrage when both Reagan and Bush used executive orders to grant amnesty. Our immigration system is broke. There has been a bill on the floor of the House of Representatives since July 2013 which no vote has been allowed on. I do not support executive action in this matter but I can see the logic (even if it's faulty). This is political. It is sad. People come here for a better life. Most do NOT come for handouts. We are losing our way as a nation. The xenophobic tendencies lately I am seeing are saddening to me. This is what our nation used to stand for

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
