Supposedly, just after the election, President Obama issued an executive order to give 4.5 million illegal immigrants amnesty. Then, there was this headline on the Drudge Report: "Obama DID NOT SIGN any executive orders implementing amnesty?" When you click on that link it takes you to a World Net Daily (WND) story titled: "Amnesty shocker! The secret behind Obama's 'order'."
What that story indicates is that Obama never issued an executive order on amnesty. Instead (and, even more lawless), His Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, issued a memorandum that authorized the unconstitutional misappropriation of funds in order to fund the hiring of agents to process illegals and add them to the work visas or green card rolls.
Proof of this is supported by the President's own White House Briefing log on executive orders, where the last order authorized by him was on October 17; three weeks "before" the election.
With this revelation, it appears that Obama's move on immigration can easily be brought down in Federal Court because the appropriation of funds is the sole responsibility of Congress. Further, any misappropriation of Federal funds is a crime under Federal law. So, is it possible that Jeh Johnson, a lawyer, will wind up in cuffs over this?
The real question is: Why is Obama playing this game with immigration by claiming executive action?
