Fox News' response to Obama's change in immigration policy, the "Daily Show" host mocked Republicans for criticizing Obama for using executive authority to grant work permits and a two-year deportation deferral for students who arrived in the U.S. after the age of 16.

"George Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan—no president in modern history—has changed deportation policy through executive action, except all of them," Stewart said.

Say it ain't so...

Stop destroying people's fantasy world where Obama is the first President ever to use an Executive Order.

Fox News told them so...it must be true.

I applaud you for bringing them up and if I were a member here during those times I would be saying the same thing from this same soap-box. It isn't confined to just President Obama, but Presidents' Bush (x2), Reagan, Clinton, Carter, Ford, Nixon, et. al.

Nearly all presidents have attempted to expand the powers of the Executive.

ETA: The names I listed wasn't meant to say they also utilized orders to change the immigration policy, just the overall power-grab and disdain for the legislative process to "get things done".

I think most of us are more annoyed that it is a election year tactic to get votes. Not the action iteslf.

But did you look at these or just find them?

Reagan Executive Order 12324 is not giving amnesty to anyone or work permits. Its actually to try to prevent them from coming in.

Reagan Executive Order 12582 says they are allowed to go through the naturalization process if they fought in a armed conflict for the united states.

Executive Order 12711 is in regards to Chinese immigrants and yes it is similar to the Obama one but not the same and Certainly not in an election year and it was after protests

Executive Order 13269 This was for those who fought after 9/11. I dont totally support this one but I understand it and not in an election year again and it was in his second term so it didnt matter if it was.

Executive Order 13276 This one is actually trying to tighten up the borders and how we deal with illegals so I am good with that and again. Not a campaign tactic.

The fact that you might agree with some of the Executive orders vs. disagree is dependant on personal opinion or political view and does not change the fact that several Conservative Presidents changed immigration and deportation policy via executive order.
