It's time to fix our broken immigration system | The White House
Our immigration system has been broken for decades. And every day we wait to act, millions of undocumented immigrants are living in the shadows: Those who want to pay taxes and play by the same rules as everyone else have no way to live right by the law. That is why President Obama is using his executive authority to address as much of the problem as he can, and why he’ll continue to work with Congress to pass comprehensive reform.Full text: Obama's immigration speech

Added to the existing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as many as 5.2 million unauthorized immigrants overall could benefit from anticipated executive action.

Asserting a legal and constitutional authority he himself said he did not have, President Obama is going rogue, issuing an executive amnesty to 4 to 5 million illegal aliens.First take: Echoes of Bush in Obama's immigration speech
He will order the U.S. government not to enforce the law against these 5 million and declare that they are to be exempt from deportation and granted green cards.
Where did Obama get his 4-5 million figure, not 2-4 million, or 5-7 million? Nowhere in law, but plucked out of his own mind, as to what he can get away with. Barack Obama just felt it was about right.Thus does our constitutional law professor-president “faithfully execute” the laws of the United States he has twice swore to uphold?
Our rogue president has crossed an historic line, and so has the republic. Future presidents will cite the “Obama precedent” when they declare they will henceforth not enforce this or that law, because of a prior commitment to some noisy constituency.
We have just taken a monumental step away from republicanism toward Caesarism. For this is rule by diktat, the rejection of which sparked the American Revolution.
The immigration speech President Obama gave a week before Thanksgiving was the one he was supposed to give before Labor Day.
But Obama punted until after the election. "I want to spend some time, even as we're getting all our ducks in a row for the executive action, I also want to make sure that the public understands why we're doing this," he said on Meet the Press in September.
Having spent nearly three months doing that, Obama on Thursday delivered a 15-minute speech to the American people and a 33-page legal justification memo to anyone who would challenge his use of executive actions to delay deportation for 5 million immigrants.
