• Obama Vows To Press Ahead Despite Judge’s Amnesty Smackdown

    In the wake of a federal judge’s smack down of the president’s unpopular executive immigration overhaul, Obama promises to press ahead with his plans to push through his unilateral amnesty.

    “We’re not going to be actually taking applications in until this case is settled,” Obama told reporters in a brief meeting Tuesday.

    “But we are doing the preparatory work because this is a big piece of business,” he said.

    Despite the judge’s February 16th injunction, Obama says he’s moving forward with his agenda.

    “The Department of Homeland Security will continue in the planning because we want to make sure as soon as these legal issues get resolved, which I anticipate they will in our favor, that we are ready to go,” he said.

    Recent polling has consistently shown that a majority of Americans oppose Obama’s executive amnesty program.

    A late November CNN poll showed just 41 percent of Americans supported Obama’s “executive orders” to change “how the U.S. will deal with some immigrants who are in this country illegally.” An overwhelming 56 percent opposed it.

    Bloomberg poll released in early December said 56 percent of Americans opposed “President Obama signing an executive order giving temporary legal status to some people who are in the United States illegally.” A mere 39 percent approved.

    Gallup poll conduct from November 24 through December 7 said just 37 percent of Americans approved of President Obama’s “executive actions.”

    Here’s a screnshot of the poll:
