Pardoning ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, isn't the same as pardoning "Dreamers'. Besides, Obama doesn't seem to have any intention to pardon ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS nor the "Dreamers". It's something that people are asking/hoping that he will do.

He should pardon all non violent drug offenders, he should have shut down Gitmo and bring those lingering to trial, or set them free, if they are accuse of terrorism then try them if they are recognized as soldiers then the rules set by the Geneva Conventions should apply , but no one want to take that chance because even if some weren't terrorist or combatants when they went to Gitmo their decades long incarceration , probably turned them into one.

There's always a conspiracy with anything Obama.

Very wromg again, actually.

There are always some people who claim anything and everything Obama does is a silly conspiracy is a much more accurate statement!

What if trump reverses the pardon?

And there are exceptions. If the pardon is not received by the person being pardoned it can be recinded.

Also That only eliminates the current crimes. IF the pardonee commits another crime they can be prosecuted for it. SO if i was trump id put her under 24 hr a day surveillance to nail her when she slips up.

Anyone got the odds on a Snowden pardon?
Is it a million to one or a billion to one?

I would say an Arron Swartz pardon would be in order if he didn't already take his own life because of the character assassination he faced from the Obama administration and Eric Holder...

He should probably pr-pardon the Clinton's just to be safe.
You know for posterity sake.

Umm, you have to be a signature to the Geneva Conventions to see their protection. Last I checked, alQueda didn't sign and refused to wear a uniform on the battlefield, so too bad.

After today volley of pardons and commutations, I think the total for President Obama stands at 1,500 or so.

Here's a list of all pardons, for those who like details.

Watch the next few weeks CLOSELY!

Among them is Bowe Bergdahl,

Then there's Edward Snowden,

Neither were pardoned....

Citing this precedent, some have urged Obama to preventively pardon defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton

No need to pardon Hillary!

How low will Obama go?

Not as low as the Obama haters!

I wouldn't be surprised to see him pardon Mumia Abu Jamal.

Well, of course he did not pardon a unrepentant cop killer....

so is it safe to conclude that the " frenzy " never materialised ?

Yeah it materialized.

Manning made famous by WIKILEAKS.

After blaming the 'Russians'.

What was it ?

O saying 30 years was just too long for giving up classified material to foreigners.
