Day657 Saturday 06/16/12

ran 3.4 miles
This is President Obama at a 2011 Univision Town Hall describing the limitations he has as president to successfully suspend deportations for anyone because of existing laws that he would break by issuing an executive order on the matter. He describes in concise detail how taking such an action would be a rank violation of the separation of powers. Well put, Mr. President.

This is President Obama contradicting the video above by announcing he is going to stop deporting illegal immigrants who break the law and come into our country at an early age (approximately between the ages of 15-30). With no congressional consent, our president is going to open the floodgates allowing a projected 800,000 illegal immigrants to remain in the country without the fear of deportation and they will even be put in jobs programs...oh, and they will probably be able to and encouraged to vote in the presidential election in November.

The reporter who appears to be heckling Obama in the video was simply asking him why he felt it was more important to give foreigners jobs than Americans. This immigration announcement comes at a time when low-skilled workers, Hispanic, and African-American unemployment is setting records. Unemployment rose in all of these categories in May and, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, less than 50% of younger African Americans have full-time jobs. Perfect time to add more workers to the pool.

40.3 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day292.
