But Obama guaranteed that HE would have immigrations reform completed by the end of 2009. Was that just another lie?

On one side of the page, there is a story about how we need to increase unemployment benefits because there are not enough jobs. In the middle there is an article that says that wages aren't raising high enough. And on the other side of the page is the article about how we need ot bring in 30 MILLION MORE people to compete for nonexisting jobs, which lowers wages. Hmmmm.......ONLY in the left's mind would this make sense!

I am not sure why the President is waiting for Congressional support on this; he had no problem in 2012 taking executive action that allowed an estimated 800,000 illegals to stay here in the U.S. without fear of any deportation. He acted totally unilaterally in allowing amnesty in that case totally sidestepping our immigration laws, what’s changed now?

Now the plan is to give anyone full citizenship immediately, including all Federal, State, and local programs and, most importantly, the right to vote in the 2014 elections. There won't be any background checks required, just full citizenship for anyone and everyone who applies. Do we really want an America without any immigration laws just to make sure Democrats get elected to office?
