A few days ago President Obama issued a new Executive Order putting some provisions of the so-called DREAM Act into effect. Following the Act’s defeat in the Senate in December 2012 this was apparently the only way to push it through without following the laws.
In this video of the President in a Town Hall Meeting he talks about doing this. The clip shows surprising insight. I think you’ll agree.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this is his simple observation that Amnesty through Executive Order can’t happen because it is against the law – and then 15 months later, he did it anyway.
