    This is what the internet has been saying the last 4 months. The constitution says it is the duty of the president to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed". If he wants amnesty obozo has to get the law changed - he can't just refuse to enforce the law.

    HAHAHA. I've been saying this since the day obozo announced his amnesty. Good to see lawyers are finally saying it too. Reagan gave amnesty to illegals also but at least he did to correctly - he got congress to pass a law.

    Obama isn't interested in upholding laws. He is interested in upholding his agenda and unfortunately for our constitution, it doesn't go along with his plans.

    Meanwhile, many of those illegal aliens will vote and anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional. They have fake IDs, stolen identities and many have registered to vote. Some states unwisely gave illegal aliens valid driver's licenses and they registered via motor voter. A person merely needs to get their name on the list at the polling places and no one will question them. Remember the guy who was able to walk into a registering place in Illinois and walk out with someone else's ballot (wasn't it Rahm's?) I do believe that the liberals are sending a message to them to vote since they've shot down voter ID, sued states for trying to update voter rolls and currently there isn't a good system in place for catching fraud. A few cases have come to light, but it took a lot of investigation to find them. The ones who are trying to make sure the voting system remains honest are up against a tide of those who want to make it easy for unidentied people to cast ballots.

    Even if voter fraud is found after the election, there won't be any cooperation with the Obama administration, should he win, to prosecute. I bet they'd continue to do all they can to keep a lid on it and try to stop states from investigating.

    Even in a reasonably honest system, we have so many takers that it's getting unbalanced. This has been warned about for centuries. When the majority can vote themselves money from the tax payers, we are done!!!

    John Yoo? Isn't he the Bush administration point man who wrote legal briefs which gave Bush (in his opinion) the necessary political cover to waterboard prisoners despite all the treaties the US signed which classified waterboarding as torture?

    By the way, someone should tell Johnny that LE isn't the legal authority which is responsible for the deportation of illegal aliens.

    You are entitled to your incorrect legal position. Yea, the President's orders were legal.

    He did. PD does not mean you can choose to exclude whole Groups of People from Prosecution under existing law simply because you don't like the law.

    The President must Enforce all the laws, Equally on all groups of people. If he does not like a law, it is not with in his power to change it, or ignore it.

    John Yoo?

    You’ve got to be kidding.

    And these ‘scholars’ are playing politics, they know very well the president is not giving anyone ‘amnesty’ and that the deferral policy is perfectly appropriate in the context of prosecutorial discretion:
