Obama Executive Order to Shield 5 Million Illegal Immigrants from Law Enforcement Action

November 20, 2014  | 

Up to four million undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years can apply for a program that protects them from deportation and allows those with no criminal record to work legally in the country, President Obama is to announce on Thursday, according to people briefed on his plans.

An additional one million people will get protection from deportation through other parts of the president’s plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration enforcement system, including the expansion of an existing program for “Dreamers,” young immigrants who came to the United States as children. There will no longer be a limit on the age of the people who qualify, the New York Times reports.

But farm workers will not receive specific protection from deportation, nor will the Dreamers’ parents. And none of the five million immigrants over all who will be given new legal protections will get government subsidies for health care under the Affordable Care Act.

These new details about the broad reach of Mr. Obama’s planned executive action on immigration emerged as he prepared to speak to the nation in a prime-time address on Thursday night. On Friday, the president is to travel to Las Vegas to rally public support for his plan in a state where Hispanics are a growing and politically powerful constituency.

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones is putting it on the line to stand up against this. See his brave challenge to the President here:

Lets not be fooled again…Illegal (illegal) immigrants already get medical care FREE in CA like a citizen does under CA state rules (funded by Fed) so do you really think that ILLEGALS now classified as remaining here wont get assistance with food stamps, medical etc etc etc….This is so much BS. These folks will belled us all until we are a 3rd world country. Obama has sat on his hands for 6 years and NOW its an emergency so that he must do this now, can't wait for the Rep. congress? He is a political megalomaniac, does not care about illegals or anything other then his reputation and paying back the Republicans for kicking his Dem ass in the last elections. If conservatives and Rep take their time, don't over react and gain the Presidency in 2016 all this can be wiped out with the stoke of a pen and all those allowed to stay including "dreamers" could be deported. This move will cause most people to be against leaving even Dreamers here, this will work against them in the end.

You might as well just delete the third paragraph because it is pure bull$#!+. Anyone working the street will tell you that you see the opposite every single day. No one will deport anyone for any reason, and those that are deported are back in a matter of weeks if not days. I see more illegals on welfare, social security or disability all the time. if it is not a federal program it is state or local. If a politician is telling you illegals cannot get welfare, social security, disability or some other form of subsistence, you can tell they are lying because their mouth is moving. I call bull$#!+.

All chiefs, sheriffs and line officers should stand up together publically against any president who acts outside the law and constitution. Obama deserves no respect as president and has disgraced his office. Many blacks apparently are too stupid to realize that the millions of illiterate Hispanics, who will flood the country, will take jobs and resources from them as much or more than anyone else in this country. The border problems will increase exponentially and crime will increase making the cop and border patrol officer's job that much harder.
Our country is headed toward chaos due to this corrupt incompetent we have as president.

The only Antidote to evil plague taking over the USA is God. All you can do is ask Jesus, for forgiveness of your sins, and the sins of the USA. God punished Israel once. History repeats itself. Wars can be won or lost from God's intervention. Look at the Democrat Convention how they booed God. The Only God Obama believes in is his narcissistic self. Who knows if the USA will spend 100 or more years in darkness? But I do know the cure to what ales the USA. Churches should be full of people begging for forgiveness. But the public is so full of PC Sheeple who worship themselves, and take Obama the Media's words as Gospel. They've been indoctrinated, and much of them mock God. They think they're "All Powerful". All I have to do is read the local Propaganda Gannett Newspaper or watch local tv where Atheists spit at God and compare God to the Easter Bunny or Santa Clause. God has even blessed those who have cursed at him. He gave us freedom, that many take for granted!

What is wrong with people can't they see that Obama, is ruining this country. He needs to step down.

Dan @ 11/20/2014 8:24 PM

No comment on here was more ridiculous then Concerned Citizens was! Haha. Seriously? Jesus and repentance of sins is the answer!? Let me guess, you probably believe 9/11 was the result of gods punishment of gays and liberals, don't you? You, sir or ma'am, frighten me. What a backward and primitive post. Churches should be empty and preachers should be out of a job. I have no problem mocking you or your god; I consider it my pleasure.

Capt. Crunch @ 11/21/2014 10:15 AM

@ Dan, you may be a gay liberal but God, still loves you and everyone else. There is no need for anyone to take pleasure mocking God.

Tom Ret @ 11/21/2014 11:41 AM

It should be a fearful thing to fall in the hands of the living God for the unbeliever. If you choose to mock God, plan on giving an account at some point in time.

RetiredChief @ 11/21/2014 11:55 AM

As much as I detest Obama and everything he stands for it is not only him violating his oath of office and putting LEO's in the position of having to violate theirs it is much more than that. If every LEO refused to implement Obama's unconstitutional directive respect for LE among the vast majority of Americans who oppose amnesty would skyrocket. It is time to say to the little wimpy Marxist puke not only NO but HELL NO!

Chuck W @ 11/21/2014 12:51 PM

Oh but dan, there is someone commenting here that is far more ridiculous than Concerned Citizen, someone that is far more frightening, far more backward, far more primitive. if you prefer to believe that you were formed by some piece of single celled monkey snot from the sea then so be it, I and many others prefer to believe that we were formed by a superior being. Kind of shows you just who the primitive one really is doesn't it?

Dan @ 11/21/2014 5:39 PM

@captcrunch oh but I so much pleasure. If it makes you feel better tho I mock Allah and Zeus as well.

@tom ret: since god is no more real than Santa clause and the tooth fairy I have nothing to fear. I do fear the Muslim and the Christian alike who work to turn their fallacy into law.

@chuck I hate to tell you but it has long been proven we share more in common with the primate than a long beaded old man in the sky. Yes it does show who the primitive one is; its you! My knowledge is backed by science while your "belief" is backed by fear and fantasy. I absolutely guarantee you put more faith in science than you do a god.

Capt. Crunch @ 11/21/2014 8:35 PM

@ Dan, hey brother no kind of hate makes me feel better. I have no ill feelings towards you and I hope you enjoy this Christmas. Dan, for your information there is a Santa Clause. There is one in all of us.

Dan @ 11/22/2014 5:00 PM

@capt crunch. i don't celebrate Christmas or the death and destruction it has represented throughput history

saythatagain @ 12/3/2014 10:27 PM

uhmm, I thought this was a discussion about some guy with too much power telling us to extend a pity party on a third world nation so the few from that country who do actually work can take jobs from the pot smoking card holders with headaches. I mean I arrested 4 of them as they ran across the line this afternoon and they were back in Mexico before I was done with the paperwork. But I got 20 lbs of meth off the street.
