    Is Barack Obama drafting an executive order that would grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens?

    Fox News is reporting that a group of Republican senators have asked President Obama to clarify reports that he is drafting a plan to issue blanket amnesty for millions of people who are in the U.S. illegally. The plan would reportedly be unilateral in nature -- circumventing Congress entirely as the administration struggles to gain support on Capitol Hill for what the administration calls "comprehensive immigration reform" -- and be issued in the form of an executive order.

    In a letter to the president, says Fox News, Senators Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Orrin Hatch (Utah), David Vitter (Louisiana), Jim Bunning (Kentucky), Saxby Chambliss (Georgia), Johnny Isakson (Georgia), James Inhofe (Oklahoma), and Thad Cochran (Mississippi) have urged the president to "abandon" what they describe as a plan to "unilaterally extend either deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens...."

    The letter, sent to the White House on Monday, argues that such a move "would further erode the American public's confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books."

    Fox News points out that an executive order granting a blanket amnesty would likely stem the high number of immigration-related protests across the country -- and would effectively make null and void the controversial bill signed into law recently by the governor of Arizona that allows state authorities to enforce federal laws regarding illegal immigration.

    According to the report, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimated last year almost 11-million people live in the United States illegally.

    This man seems bound and determined to 'destroy' our way of life by allowing these illegals to be rewarded for breaking our sovereign law - and we take pride in being a country of laws????? Really?

    If the president takes this action as described in the article all indications in the area I live in is that open rebellion will become a real possibility.

    These citizen militia members are already prepared. In this part of the state the militia members are in the majority.

    There will be no winners, we will all lose if that happens.

    Yeah ... him and his executive orders. How many has he signed now? And, yes, he's deliberately trying to circumvent Congress.

    Hi there US,
    I am a non-partisan that remembers what a disaster Reagan's amnesty became, and further realize how it has contributed to the problem we have with illegal immigration in the present.
    The difference between that misguided action and this one is that Reagan did so with congressional support, not by excetutive order.
    Enforcing the law to defend our borders should not be a partisan issue.
    Nice attempt at deflection though.

    When Reagan granted amnesty, it was 4 million - now it's about 20 million and lets not forget to count the chain immigrations that follows: wife/husband, mom/dad, bros/sis = husband/wife, children, aunts/uncles, cousins, etc. My brain is spinning!

    Reagan's amnesty was stipulated to accompany all the same conditions as are proposed now in "comprehensive" immigration reform.. Did it happen then? Hell no and it won't happen now. Secure the damn borders.. Do it now. That's what we want.
