Last Wednesday after being shellacked in the midterm elections, Barack Obama promised to pass executive amnesty.
He just doesn’t get it.
Or maybe he doesn’t care?
Nearly three-fourths of American voters oppose Obama’s amnesty plan.
Americans who voted in the midterms on Tuesday overwhelming are opposed to President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty and do not want foreign workers to take jobs from Americans and legal immigrants who are already here.

An exit poll conducting by Kellyanne Conway’s The Polling Company found that three-quarters (74%) of voters believed that “President Obama should work with Congress rather than around Congress on immigration and separately.”
Overall, strong “majorities of men (75%), women (74%), whites (79%), blacks (59%), and Hispanics (54%),” in addition to tri-partisan majorities of “self-identified Republicans (92%), Independents (80%), and Democrats (51%)” did not want Obama to enact an executive amnesty on his own. Only 20% of voters wanted Obama to move forward with his executive amnesty.
“The President may be the last person in town to realize how resistant Americans are to him playing the Lone Ranger on amnesty,” the polling memo stated. “In fact, based on his press conference yesterday, he has either suspended disbelief or has no awareness of how the immigration issue and his threats to act alone contributed to his party suffering massive losses on Tuesday.”
Obama will likely wait until after Senator Mary Landrieu faces off in her special election on December 6th to pass executive amnesty.
It’s always political with this one.
