A federal appeals court on Monday sided with 26 states led by Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott, who argued that Obama had exceeded his constitutional power with his actions.
Democrats believe that drawing attention to the case will help their party at a time when Republican presidential candidates are running hard against the idea of granting legal status, or “amnesty,” to undocumented workers.
Many on the left see parallels to the 2012 election. In June of that year, Obama acted unilaterally to offer quasi-legal status and work authorization to young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
That program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), allowed Obama to draw a stark contrast with Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who said he would veto legislation that would help the same group of immigrants, known as the DREAM Act.

“That was the largest mobilizing issue for Latinos in 2012 and President Obama really benefitted from that,” said Matt Barreto, a UCLA professor and co-founder of the polling firm Latino Decisions. “In some ways, we may see a replay of that no matter how the court decides.”
Well, what do you expect them to rely on… the benefit to society from their policies?
And therefore the reason the democrats don’t want voters to provide ID. I am sick and tired of the slime at the top.
I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK
There is only one candidate hopeful from either party who puts AMERICAN citizens first, and it is Donald Trump. The rest talk about free college for illegals, sanctuary cities for illegals and harboring murderers from arrest, driver’s license, jobs, free medical, etc etc . The AMERICAN citizen is being taxed to the ground to pay for illegals and the illegal sits back and laughs at their freebies they get off our backs. I have digressed.
@Enchanted: If I was an illegal anything the last thing I’d be concerned about is voting.
I ask you –is former Dem., The Donald, a Conservative? Do you consider Ben Carson a Conservative–if Carson wins the nom will you strongly support him?
@Enchanted: As of April 2015, 32 states enforced voter identification requirements, there is some hope, the dems blocked some newer ID laws in 2012 but they are in force now.
Soon dead people will not be able to vote.
