White House: Border crisis 'will provide atmospherics' for Obama to issue immigration executive order before midterms

Amnesty sympathizers at the National Journal provide a glimpse into how Obama plans to thwart the rule of law through executive fiat prior to the midterm elections...
Inflammatory as it's been, the debate over unaccompanied Central American children crossing the U.S. border is only the warm-up for an approaching immigration confrontation with even greater stakes.

Regardless of how Congress handles his request for more border resources, President Obama is moving toward a historic—and explosive—executive order that will provide legal status to a significant number of the estimated 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. One senior White House official says that while "what's happening at the border will provide atmospherics for the [president's] decision," it won't stop him from acting on the undocumented—probably before the midterm elections. The resulting collision over Obama's expected action could lastingly define both the Democratic and Republican parties for the burgeoning Hispanic population.
Beyond these first few paragraphs, the rest is lib dribble essentially cheerleading for statist crisis control. What's conveniently absent is the fact that Obama ignored warnings of the impending border crisis for two years because, apparently, it was a 'local' issue...uh huh, only if local is code for party politics!
DailyMail: The Obama administration has been accused of repeatedly ignoring warning signs over the past two years that showed a growing number of unaccompanied children from Central America were crossing the Mexican border into the U.S.

Agencies like the Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as well as politicians north and south of the border were all ‘ringing alarm bells’ about the federal government’s capacity to manage the situation, according to a report presented to the Department of Homeland Security in March.

The 41-page report was compiled by a team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). ...

The White House was even directly involved in efforts to care for immigrant children in early 2012 when it helped negotiate a temporary shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

Yet the Obama administration considered the problem a ‘local’ one.
Try telling that to the lower 48, starting with the border states, El Presidente.
