WASHINGTON DC - U.S. Senate Democrats are trying to manufacture a crisis over immigration reform in order to hand President Obama the unilateral power to grant amnesty for the 11 million illegals prior to the November elections.
U.S. Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) took the airwaves recently to announce a deadline that Dick Durbin (D-IL) has also been talking up. According to Schumer and Durbin the clock starts on June 10th and ends when Congress leaves town for the August recess. If Boehner hasn’t passed a bill by then, Obama will act on his own.
"So, here's the bottom line," said Schumer. "They have about a six week window. From June 10th, after the last Republican primary, until the August recess. If they don't pass immigration reform then, the president will have no choice but to act on his own. We'd much rather pass legislation. But they're worried that the president is going to do something on his own? Well you have one, simple, easy way. Pass immigration reform."
