UH-OH! Have White House insiders decided to betray Obama, given the lawless tack upon which the president has embarked with regard to executive amnesty?
According to “a source close to the White House,” President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday.
This information was apparently leaked to Fox News by the unnamed source.
The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval. As part of the 10-point plan, up to 4.5 million illegal immigrants living with their American born kids would be allowed to stay in the U.S., an expansion of deferred action.

On Fox News this week, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) slammed the Obama administration’s immigration plans. “The president has no authority to do this,” he said. “It’s against the law.” Sessions said that immigration officers have said that if these plans goes through, it will be “almost impossible” to enforce the law.
“This is action unilaterally by one person, the president of the United States, to legalize millions that Congress has explicitly refused to do,” Sessions said.
He added that “executive amnesty” is really “a threat to constitutional order.”
So, have White House insiders decided to betray Obama by leaking this information to the press, given the apparent lawless tack upon which the president has embarked?
Last week, Sessions co-wrote a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, urging him to block executive action from the president that would amount to “amnesty.” The letter, also signed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), warned that it would amount to a constitutional crisis upon which the Senate would be forced to act.
