• According To CNN, Harry Reid Is Begging Obama To Delay His Executive Amnesty

    Just as Fox News is exclusively reporting that President Obama is just days away from granting legal status and work permits to nearly five million illegal aliens, CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash is also reporting that Harry Reid (D-NV) is begging President Obama to delay his planned executive action on immigration.

    “Things are so tense here that the Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid told our Ted Barrett that he has asked the president to hold off on an executive order on immigration order, until, in the words of Reid, ‘the finances of this country are out of the way.’ Translation: do it too soon and risk a government shutdown” Bash said Thursday on CNN’s The Lead. 

    Harry Reid doesn’t care about Obama shredding the Constitution and granting legal status to millions of people who shouldn’t be living here, with the stroke of a pen. Harry Reid only cares about being able to pass a budget without political reprisal.

    Today, House Speaker John Boehner vowed to fight Team Obama “tooth and nail” and threatened to throw a wrench in Obama’s plans for the next two years he pursued his amnesty plans.

    “I’ll just say this, we are going to fight the president tooth and nail if he continues down this path,” Boehner said. “This is the wrong way to govern. This is exactly what the American people said on Election Day they didn’t want!”

    Obama has long-promised to bypass Congress and unilaterally grant amnesty, and more specifically work visas, to those millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. Obama has based his unconstitutional action on a state of emergency.

    However, when Obama had control of the U.S. House and the Senate in 2009 and ’10, and when he could have passed any immigration bill he wanted, he chose to pursue Obamacare.

    “Many Democrats here on Capitol Hill feel that many illegal immigrants who came to the United States through no fault of their own, maybe as children, have suffered enough and it is time for the president to use his power to help,” CNN’s Dana Bash added. “But again, the other issue at play here is that funding for the government runs out on December 11th and that is why, again, Harry Reid told our Ted Barrett that he wants the president to hold off on this executive order until after that because, you know, they don’t want to deal with the government shutdown on either side of the aisle.”
