AZBD Note: This amnesty will not be just 5 million people. It will probably allow relatives of those 5 million also. This is completely illegal and an act of treason. If congress wants to do its job they should impeach Obama immediately. But unfortunately there are plenty of other traitors in congress so a conviction will probably not happen. This is going to be the final nail in Americas coffin. If you care about your freedom you need to move to a free state now.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a broad test of his executive powers, President Barack Obama declared Wednesday he will sidestep Congress and order his own federal action on immigration — in measures that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people illegally in the U.S. and set up one of the most pitched partisan confrontations of his presidency.
Obama declared that Washington has allowed America’s immigration problem “to fester for too long.”
The president will use an 8 p.m. EST address Thursday to announce his measures and will sign the executive actions during a rally in Las Vegas on Friday. In doing so, Obama will be taking an aggressive stand that he had once insisted was beyond his presidential power.
