Obama Admin postures, preps to grant 5 million temporary status
WASHINGTON, D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — President Barack Obama is back at it again, now threatening the use of Executive Orders once again to possible provide 5 million illegal migrants temporary citizenship by summer’s end, reports say. This would apply to about 5 million of 11 million migrants who have overextended their visas.
Now some like myself speculate that House Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against Obama is nothing more than smoke and mirrors for the American people as Boehner has turned down the idea of impeachment on numerous occasions, showing that they are all two peas of the same pod.
The L.A. Times reported:
Obama could use his executive powers to expedite deportations in response to the current border crisis, in an effort to clear the large numbers of unaccompanied minors gathering daily in the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas.
At the same time, he seems likely to act to prevent deportations of many of the immigrants already living, working and raising children in the U.S.
One option would allow immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens to apply for temporary legal status which would let them work legally in the U.S. Because children born in the country automatically receive U.S. citizenship, that option could affect about 5 million people, researchers estimate.
A second option would be to allow temporary legal status for the parents of young people already granted deportation deferrals by the Obama administration. That would affect a smaller, but still sizable, number of people.
The spectacle, which is merely just window dressing for the masses, appears to be all over the place, pidgin-holing the common citizen into confusion so they will eventually accept the outcome.
Moreover, this wouldn’t be the first time that the POTUS threatened the use of his almighty pen.
