President Obama revealed his executive amnesty plan prior to issuing his executive order. In response, Judicial Watch’s president Tom Fitton said this is a direction from the White House to not enforce the law and would “lead to one of the greatest mass migrations in history.” President Obama’s executive order, issued on November 20, will prevent 4.1 million parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who have lived in our country for a minimum of five years from being deported. In addition, these people will be granted the right to work. Judicial Watch will continue to investigate this unconstitutional executive amnesty and further its efforts on government transparency and accountability on illegal immigration.
