<quoted text>Well I googled the interview and from what I read he simply said he probably wouldn't pass an executive order. The key word was probably.
Bottom line is he has the legal ability to do so.
Our system of law depends on the administrators morality and truthfulness. While an argument can be made that he has the legality to make executive orders, making such orders to circumvent the legislative or judicial branches of government is unconstitutional and wrong. He's not the first president to do this.

Rubio knows the truth, the president can absolutely do that. FYI, he is not bypassing congress as a matter of fact he's following all communication channels. The congress is the main problem here.

Obama could offer amnesty to all of us, doing so would help the U. S. pay it's national debt. 20 million more workers would not only help with the debt, but also social security short comings.
Let the 20 million unemployed Americans be those 20 million workers. The problem is there are NOT 20 million viable jobs and under this president there will never be!

We don't need ANY more SURPLUS LABOR!

Your elected Representatives ALLOW THIS.
Aren't you proud to be a working American, so you can have your tax dollars wasted like this?
So how come North Korea can support a million man army and the PLA of China is close to 200 million men while our Army is less than a million?

The cost scale is vastly different and a lot of the other countries have ways of subsidizing military budgets.

We also are unwilling to suffer high casualties so we pay in money to limit our losses in lives.

It is asymmetrical.

I don't think we can trust either party with executive orders, therefore, there should be no executive orders. And while they're at it, they could outlaw the totally corrupt policy of Presidential pardons.

<quoted text>Thank you for your reply. If you are the same White American from 2-3 tears ago, you have changed quite a bit. I appreciate your opinion but I still don't buy it. In our current position, more people means lower wages, higher unemployment and a lower standard of living for our lower and middle classes. As a matter of fact, and the law of supply and demand, flooding the labor market ALWAYS results in lower wages and higher unemployment. Hopefully, you are an exploiter, which would at least give you a monetary reason for backing such a terrible idea. I thought you would be too intelligent to be brainwashed by an ideology that is so illogical.
Well spud I don't know if I'm the same but I can say that I'm the original. I've been posting on Topix for some 6 to 8 yrs now.
I have a link that you might want to take a look at. This link will also break down the effects of the immigration reform on the different states. You just click on the state you are interested in.
There is a big economic advantage to this reform. If there wasn't the Government wouldn't even be considering it.

Here's the link:]

So which American citizens should the Government listen to? Those that just say get rid of them. Even if it means that it will continue to damage our economy. Or those American citizens that know that our economy will improve with the reform.
Don't act like you speak for all of us you don't.

With all due respect, Whitey, this is a promotional release by the White House. You can't confuse this with reality. The president and his party stand to benefit greatly from an amnesty and that is what this push is all about. There is also a group of idiotic neocons that think they can get more corporate cash and increase their Hispanic vote total by taking credit for supplying cheap labor and granting amnesty. This amnesty isn't about what is good for the country, its workers or the economy. It's about self serving politicians looking to increase their chances for reelection and greedy employers looking to increase their already record high profits. Go back to your link and check out about 10 states. You'll see every report was done by the same company and they're all written up identically, stressing LaRaza phrases and economic assumptions while inserting unproven stats to attempt to justify their position. This report is about as believable as John McCain explaining why the Iraq debacle was crucial to the survival of this country. Then again, you already knew you were only going to get one slanted side of the story from whitehouse.gov .

I guess you didn't like that link. Perhaps you might consider these other links.
By the way I'm not whitey...WA is sufficient anything else sounds like a put down.
I'm talking to you politely and would appreciate the same in return.

"The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office found that the Senate bill would reduce the deficit over the next 20 years by nearly $850 billion. The Social Security Administration estimates that this immigration bill would add nearly $300 billion dollars to the Social Security system in the next decade."
http://www.concordmonitor.com/opinion/columns...

"The report,“The Economic Impact of S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act,” says overall the legislation would lead to increases in the labor force, wages, and productivity.

Along with that, the CBO report says, there would be a huge decrease in the federal budget deficits over the first 10 years of implementation:$197 billion. The second decade after implementation the bill would save roughly $700 billion, with an additional $300 billion deficit reduction possible through what the report called “economic impacts not included in the cost estimate.”

The cost of enacting the immigration overhaul would be far less than the financial benefits, according to the report. Implementation would cost estimated $22 billion over the 2014-23 period and $20 billion to $25 billion over the period 2024-33.

The report also projects the legislation would increase the GDP by 3.3 percent within the first 10 years after being signed into law (2023) and by 5.4 percent by 2033."

My apologies. No harm meant WA. The truth of the matter is nobody can project the outcomes you are stating as truth. Neither side. I have a hard time taking you seriously because everything you say is right out of the DNC, the White House or some other liberal bastion. You seem to only see one side of the story and I can't truly respect the opinion of anyone who always favors one side. Either side. To me that's an indication of someone who has to be told what to think.
