President Obama will acknowledge Monday that there is no hope for legislation overhauling the immigration system in Congress this year and announce he is redirecting immigration enforcement from the interior of the United States to the border, the White House said.
The action, which beefs up efforts to stem illegal immigration across the border but could slow efforts to deport undocumented immigrants already in the country, is one of series of executive actions Obama will pledge since the House decided not to take up immigration legislation this year.
Obama professed hope that Republicans would finally back a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws, bowing both to business interests and the growing political importance of Latino voters.
According to the White House statement, Obama will now direct Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to beef up border security.
IF these countries are in such DIRE-STRAIGHTS, why don't they ask for help ??? ... ( i.e. Monetary and/or Military )

So Obama will start doing what he was elected to do, uphold the laws and US Constitution? He is admitting that he was holding the US border enforcement hostage in order to force the Congress to vote his way???
Sounds like something he should be impeached over.
As far as his promise to start doing his job.... I won't hold my breath.

Anyway we need to clamp the southern border down hard and then deport every single illegal alien in the US, period. Let them follow our laws like legal immigrants do, not reward them for breaking our laws.
