Let him,that would make it easier to hunt them down and deport them once he's gone.There's absolutely nothing he can do to permanently legalize them without Congress.

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.

Of course the dictator-in-chief will steamroll a plan of his own, to further destroy this country from within. That has been the plan of his puppetmasters all along. He just does what he is told to do...he hasn't a care in the world; he'll just golf. With all the practice he's had during his presidency, you'd think his game would have improved.

A couple more scumbag presidents like Nixon and Obama and it will be time to get rid of the office altogether.

Then hire a circus performer to do the job once a year.

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.

It is outrageous that the man plays golf. No president has ever played golf before. Except for:

I believe it's time for our Congress to get off their backsides and come up with a Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Because:

“The President...shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”
Article II, Section 2, Clause 1"

How would it help the U.S. pay debt? Illegals only take they don't give. Most of the people are illiterate. Educated people don't need to be illegal. They can go anywhere.U.S. get the ones here to collect Welfare and all the other freebies.

It is a fact that he plays golf on a regular basis; the number is 104 rounds from January 2009 through Aug. 4 of this year. That's a heck of a lot of golf.
Selective outrage seems to be a specialty of yours. 104 rounds in five years is not much for a golfer. Boehnor plays about 120 rounds a year. As leader of the do nothing Congress that should be a bigger concern to you.

It is probably a safe bet that you are also outraged that Obama has taken a summer vacation. Here are the totals for the past four two term presidents and the amount of time they spent on vacation at this point in their administration:

Obama 15 trips for a total of 96 days
GW Bush 58 trips for a total of 349 days
Clinton 11 trips for a total of 84 days
Reagan 29 trips for a total of 180 days

It seems that vacations were never an issue before.

Written by a mexican-go figure.No they won't contribute-most are illiterate. The people that are educated can go elsewhwere or come over legally, they don't need to sneak. Like I said-they only take. Will continue to bleed the U.S..

The heck they weren't. George SR. and his incessant fishing trips peeved me to no end. However, I'd wager that his trips were not as extravagant as the Obama's. Reagan's wife and her extravagant taste was a major turn-off as well. Next...
