No one who has watched President Obama’s descent into an imperial presidency should be surprised by his latest executive fiat that will provide amnesty and work permits for almost one million illegal aliens, an utter reversal of federal immigration law.

After all, this complements his Justice Department’s actions in Florida, where Eric Holder has filed suit to prevent the state from removing noncitizens from the voter registration rolls. That followed his administration’s failure to provide Florida with citizenship verification information—again in complete defiance of federal immigration law that requires the administration to provide such information upon request.

For those inclined to connect dots, it certainly appears as though President Obama is making sure illegal immigrants can remain in the country while his Attorney General makes sure they can vote in November.
