For years the Obama administration has used creative accounting and selective deportation statistics to boost the president’s image as an executive dedicated to enforcing Congress’ immigration laws.

Nor was anything that faced him or President Kennedy to big or too large for them to take on without shriveling up to it.
Whereby on the one hand we have a president who says, “the federal government is to inactive to handle” matters such as illegal immigration; consequently, for Barack Obama doing the opposite by Executive Order is more arrogant than brave or smart. Please consider the following “Inaction.”
Someone must be getting the point out there that – whatever Barack Obama has tried to do via his phone and pen scenario (Executive Orders) – it certainly seems as though whatever he has done in either Foreign and Domestic policy matters have been a complete failure.
Obama has tried to clarify his administration’s deportation rhetoric with select audiences since at least 2011 when, according to the Washington Times, Obama told a round table of Hispanic reporters:
