Fox News got ahold of exclusive documents
Source: Obama to announce 10-point immigration plan via exec action as early as next week
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, a source close to the White House told Fox News.
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. (snip)

The plan contains 10 initiatives than span everything from boosting border security to improving pay for immigration officers.
But the most controversial pertain to the millions who could get a deportation reprieve under what is known as “deferred action.”
The plan calls for expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children — but also for the parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.
The latter could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children to stay, according to estimates.
Another portion that is sure to cause consternation among anti-“amnesty” lawmakers is a plan to expand deferred action for young people. In June 2012, Obama created such a program for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, entered before June 2007 and were under 31 as of June 2012. The change would expand that to cover anyone who entered before they were 16, and change the cut-off from June 2007 to Jan. 1, 2010. This is estimated to make nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants eligible.
This is what you get from a president who is tone deaf, at least to the American people. The only ones who want this are moneyed Democrats and Republicans, and illegal aliens. The American people don’t. It will harm the middle and lower class wage earners.
Who wants amnesty? Big donors to both parties. People here illegally. That's it. That's who wants to flood the U.S. with cheap labor.

Marsh Blackburn wrote Wednesday, prior to learning about the proposed amnesty
President Obama said in October that while he was not on the ballot, his policies were. The result was a historic rejection of his radical agenda. Perhaps more than any issue, voter disgust over the President’s amnesty for undocumented individuals dictated the outcome. The President is threatening to expand his unconstitutional amnesty in December, which represents a direct threat to the economic and national security of this country. (snip)
Given all of this, I watched in astonishment the day after the election as President Obama held a press conference and doubled down on his mission to grant mass amnesty by the end of the year. At a time when the work force participation rate stands at its lowest level since 1978 (62.7 percent) and we are trying to decimate ISIL, the last thing our country needs is to grant work permits to millions of undocumented individuals and advertise to enemies that our borders are not secure.
Obama doesn’t care.
The President is also creating a Constitutional crisis, which I spoke of on the House floor in July. I stated that Democrats had gone from “Yes We Can” to “Because We Can.” I asked if the President has the power to delay part of a law, can he delay an entire law? I asked if the President has the authority to allow illegal individuals to stay in the country, does he have the authority to tell legal citizens to leave? The point being, where does the President’s power begin and end if he is allowed to act beyond the scope of his authority in furtherance of a purported greater good? The law is not a suggestion.
It is for Democrats, particularly Obama.
What’s the answer to this? Come next year when the GOP takes over the Senate to go along with the House, they simply refuse to fund any of this.
