In an interview on MSNBC Friday, Representative Luis Gutiérrez said he believes Obama has the legal authority to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants.
Gutiérrez said he is scheduled to meet with Obama White House officials “to negotiate additional terms and avenues the president can use” through executive action.
“Let me just say in about an hour, I’m going over to the White House. I’ll be meeting with Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and the chief legal counsel to the president of the United States. We’re going to sit down and we’re going to negotiate additional terms and avenues the president can use and prosecutorial discretion.”
“I think we can get 3 or 4, maybe even 5 million people,” he added.
Earlier this week, Rep. Gutiérrez told a group of open border activists at a La Raza convention, that he is confident that President Pen and Phone will use executive orders to give legal status to millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S.
