The executive order deemphasizes removal efforts for certain categories of entries, and provides temporary legal status for undocumented immigrants who have resided in the U.S. for more than five years and are the parent of either a citizen or green card holder. These unilateral policy changes provide amnesty for nearly half of the illegal immigrants currently living inside our borders.

From the Virginia Tea Party Patriots:

The next Tea Party Messaging Team webinar will be Wednesday, January 7th at 8 p.m. ET.

Registration link below.

Our main presenter will be Bill Norton of Tea Party Patriots who will give us his latest insights into The Language of Liberty.   Bill teaches how to speak with words that are uplifting and appealing. The language of liberty, based on extensive poll-testing by Tea Party Patriots, is positive (not negative), and forward-thinking (thus dispelling the false notion the Tea Party is stuck in the past).  For those of you who saw Bill’s presentation at VTPPF’s November conference, he is always refining his material, so you won’t want to miss his newest discoveries.

We will begin with Carol Stopps, VTPPF’s CoLA Team Leader who will tell us about the federation’s messaging priorities for the upcoming Virginia legislative session.

US immigration released photos of the proposed ID cards for illegal immigrants.

The federal contract will plan for for up to 34 million cards.
Breitbart reported:

Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.
