As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Immigration Order Coming Thursday or Friday

President Obama plans to announce his executive on immigration order as early as Thursday, though the announcement may wait until an appearance Obama plans to make in Las Vegas on Friday, according to CNBC.

According to the report:

President Barack Obama plans to announce an executive order in Las Vegas on Friday to address immigration reform, CNBC has confirmed.

Another source familiar with the situation told CNBC that Obama could yet give a broader outline on an immigration order on Thursday and add detail on Friday.

The trip to Las Vegas was not previously on the White House schedule. It appears to be a surprise journey that will include the announcement.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has been urging Obama to “go big” on immigration. No doubt he will be on hand for the event.

One report said Obama will appear at Del Sol High School, where Mr. Obama gave a major immigration speech in 2013.

The immigration order is expected to grant temporary amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants through “prosecutorial discretion,” under which the administration will simply refuse to charge and deport them. They are also expected to obtain temporary legal status, though not citizenship.

  1. Didn’t he say people shouldn’t be flying off to Vegas? Too extravagant? Oh that’s right, there are tons of new Hispanics in Nevada and Harry Reid up for election in 2016.
    What an absolute, friggin pile of steaming bovine excrement.

  2. Unless the Ferguson decision comes today, we’re going to be overwhelmed with crises in the next couple of days a la Cloward & Piven.

    Rand Paul was talking about going to the Supreme Court but said that that would take time so I have a question for anyone here. Can any lower court issue a temporary hold on his executive order until it is decided by the courts?

      • When I saw Rand Paul, he said that there was a judicial precedent for the Supreme Court overturning an executive order. I can’t believe that there no redress in the courts and in the legislature. Otherwise, the President would have absolute power already. I’m just interested if a court could put a hold on it immediately.

        Oh well, the Republicans say they will not fund it.

  3. He thrives on being the bully. He has his ‘special toy room”. Then he picks his new very best friends & allows them into his playroom, sticking his thumb in his ears at everyone who didn’t get in, & kicks out his old very best friends. Meanwhile everyone who helped him get his ‘special toy room’ wish they weren’t so generous to him in the first place. Butt, those who never gave him anything, get nothing & need to get him off his high horse before he takes even more.

  4. I cannot think of one reason us hardworking taxpayers should be paying for him to give a speech at a high school in Las Vegas. Hopefully he is house hunting, that would make it worthwhile for me.

  5. I will give you ten-to-one odds he declares amnesty within an hour of the announcement of the GJ’s decision.

    The news here is as much the imminence of that decision as it is the arrogance of Obama’s decision.

    • They can’t do anything about it,….yet.
      They don’t have the majority in the senate,….yet.
      As far as backbone, we will see.
      They will have the power to smack him down in the next two years.
      Whether they use it or not is to be determined.

      • I dont know…
        I just do not trust these Republicans in majority/leadership (Boehner or McConnell) having the nerve-guts-balls-etc. to truly call out Obama & the socialist-democrats…

  6. If he does this,….he is essentially re-writing the law and that is unconstitutional.
    The amnesty that he is invoking has not been passed by the congress.
    He does not have the authority under the constitution to make a law, he is there to ENFORCE the law, nothing more.


  7. I just got home from the grocery store and one of those rag magazines at the checkout counter has Obama’s picture on the cover with giant headline that says ” Obama hid that he was gay in order to become President.” No, I didn’t buy the magazine.

  8. From an AP story this morning…

    “Astrid Silva, an organizer for the group Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, said the president “has a duty to keep his promise and use his full legal authority to take action where Congress has failed.”

    Didn’t know our Constitution mentioned anything about a President acting unilaterally to “keep his promise” or when he feels “Congress has failed.”

  9. If you want to get really mad Judicial Watch is reporting that it cost us taxpayers $1,539,402.10 for Obama’s Labor Day weekend trips. world net daily has the breakdown

  10. Will Obama grant amnesty to all illegals, including criminal teens? The feds dumped 40-50 illegal “boys” into a school for juvenile delinquents in Oracle, AZ, this past summer. Since then 911 calls from Sycamore Canyon Academy have spiked. The news recently reported an assault on a staff member by an illegal teen from Central America. The teen used a tube sock filled with 3 soap bars as a club to strike the staffer in the back of the head. Earlier a female teacher was attacked when 3 kids tried to steal her car keys.

    These illegal kids should be deported, especially since they have demonstrated they have no respect for our laws nor do they appreciate the care they’re receiving. I can’t help but wonder if the feds dumped a bunch of gang members into this school.

    And what is with the feds buying the underwear in such huge sizes, large enough for a 450 pound man? Does Mooch overhaul the school lunch system in Central America too? I can’t imagine “kids” being so large.

  11. (On no elmo …. don’t go all Rushbo on us!).

    I predicted last week (pat self on back, like Radio dude does), that the two events, were going to be linked (by plan/design).

    Now, we are also in the window …. of Obama announcing that Iran, is now a fully fledged nuclear state. Destroyer of worlds (also by his evil hand).

    Besides the actual treason. The d*fecation ‘pon citizenry and Constitution alike. I now firmly believe he is taunting. With the intent of drawing out a loose wingnut (though yes, he will get a thrill, ‘pon Blueboy Jihadi Hill, when the first drop of blood falls, in Ferguson).

    (Cameo) Word up …

  12. Any sort of off-the-cuff amnesty will hurt the average black American more than the average white American. To make up for that, King Know-it-all will next write an order for Black Reparations. This will be done as he orders because no one in the GOP wants to look racist. Seriously, i’m waiting for the ceremony in which Boehner hands the gavel of the Congress to the Resident and backs away, bowing low.

  13. “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
    He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.” Quote by:Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator – Source: Attributed.

  14. I am astounded this imbecile is actually going to do this. I’m not surprised he won’t be in DC. He’s a lying scumbag coward; he doesn’t want to be anywhere near DC when he makes his grand proclamation. God help us.

  15. The fact this corrupted man who is mad with power must travel from D.C. to a state that is infested with illegal aliens in order to have the same illegal aliens applaud him speaks volumes.

  16. Another golfing vacation on the tax payers’ money in Las Vegas. Doesn’t matter, beheadings, hatchett, knifings in Israel, on to the golf course, betcha.
