We all knew it was coming. We knew he was merely going to wait until after the elections to attempt to save endangered Democrats. Today Josh Earnest announced it completely.
“We’re in a position where a vast majority of the work has been done,” Earnest said in response to a question from TIME’s Zeke Miller. “The bulk of the work has been done.”
“That [remaining] work will be done in sufficient time for the President to make an announcement before the end of the year,” he added. “There are still some additional decisions that need to made.”
That’s nice. I guess some last minute decisions had to be made between DHS, DOJ and La Raza. So now the only question is how big and sweeping wil lhe make it. How far will he push this issue. Is he going to give them full citizenship legal status? Voting rights, welfare, and everything else?
Remember elections have consequences, this is the consequence from 2008 and 2012.
