Oh and please don't say he can't, because he has shown he doesn't have a problem overstepping his authority when he chooses to do so!
Just ask the murderers and rapists that he just set free from ICE detention.
Is that what happened? Why do you insist on spreading misinformation?
There have been more deportations since Obama came into office than under any other President in US history. Here's some
In fact, ICE expanded upon strategies instituted under the Bush administration to deport more criminals:
The numbers reveal a more nuanced picture than either side paints. The Obama Administration has deported immigrants in record numbers and,
following on a high-consequence enforcement strategy instituted in the mid-2000s, has significantly increased the chances that an individual
apprehended at the border will face consequences—namely, formal deportation. The administration has also shifted its enforcement emphasis to
criminals and has escalated the use of administrative removal proceedings that authorize removals outside of traditional immigration courts. Faced
with limited resources, the administration’s shift toward removing criminals and recent border crossers has been coupled with a decline in
deportations of other individuals caught in the interior
Your entire opinion is built on a report by the CIS that was fed through Fox News and regurgitated throughout the Internet. CIS is the Center for
Immigration Studies, a private "think tank" founded by a retired ophthalmologist from Michigan named John Tanton who also founded FAIR, NumbersUSA,
Californians for Population Stabilization, U.S. English, Pro-English — something like 13 of these interconnected propaganda factories in total. The
guy is a frothy mouthed lunatic, eugenicist and all around horrible person. From a 1996 letter to millionaire and fellow eugenicist,

Do we leave it to individuals to decide that they are the intelligent ones who should have more kids? And more troublesome, what about the less
intelligent, who logically should have less? Who is going to break the bad news, and how will it be implemented?
Here's something else he had to say:
In a 2001 letter by Tanton being circulated as part of the current campaign, he laid out his idea to “move the battle lines on the immigration
question in our favor” by convincing Republican lawmakers that “massive immigration imperils their political future.” The goal, he wrote, was to
“change Republicans’ perception of immigration so that when they encounter the word ‘immigrant,’ their reaction is ‘Democrat.’ ”
Organizers of the campaign against the groups found the letter at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library, which houses Tanton’s
You can read about the love-hate relationship between Tanton's groups and conservatives in
this Washington Post article
from which the above expert was taken.
The guy supports forced abortion and sterilization FYI (I can dig up the sources). You seem like a guy who doesn't like to be played for a sucker and
wouldn't support mass sterilization programs so I thought you might like to know whose misinformation your peddling.
Back to the topic. It was covered a couple of days ago here:
One of the posters pointed out an article from the conservative website,
a pretty mundane explanation:
We’re getting a lot of e-mail this weekend about an executive order issued on Friday afternoon by President Obama titled “National Defense
Resources Preparedness.” While the timing of the EO is curious — why send it out on a Friday afternoon when an administration is usually trying
to sneak bad news past the media? — the general impact of it is negligible. This EO simply updates another EO (12919) that had been in place since
June 1994, and amended several times since.
Again, this is almost identical to EO 12919 from 18 years earlier. Note what this EO specifically orders: identify, assess, be prepared, improve,
foster cooperation. None of these items claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. What follows
after Section 103 are the directives for implementing these rather analytical tasks, mostly in the form of explicit delegations of presidential
authority to Cabinet members and others in the executive branch.
Why the update? If one takes a look at EO 12919, the big change is in the Cabinet itself. In 1994, we didn’t have a Department of Homeland
Security, for instance, and some of these functions would naturally fall to DHS. In EO 12919, the FEMA director had those responsibilities, and the
biggest change between the two is the removal of several references to FEMA (ten in all). Otherwise, there aren’t a lot of changes between the two
EOs, which looks mainly like boilerplate.
In fact, that’s almost entirely what it is. The original EO dealing with national defense resources preparedness was issued in 1939 (EO 8248)
according to the National Archives. It has been superseded a number of times, starting in 1951 by nearly every President through Bill Clinton, and
amended twice by George W. Bush.
