Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight President Obama illegal immigration and the law that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
There are many things in play after mr.
Obama announced a quads -- legalization of perhaps 800000 illegal Alex.
On Friday the president announced that the US government would no longer deport aliens brought here illegally.
When they were sixteen years old war under.
Those folks must not be more than thirty years old now.
Have a clean record.
With a high school diploma war military service president says it's a fair thing to do and talking points does not disagree.
With that theory.
This group of illegal aliens was brought to America through no fault of their old.
However the president's new policy might very well be illegal.
It's up to congress to make federal law not the president.
Is simple constitutional decency.
This is how the -- lawlessness that congress is -- one who makes the laws what did the administration does -- diminish his alarm.
And in fact what it's pretending to do is to use discretion that's of the Homeland Security.
Secretary said this is not discretion.
If you go by the letter of the law Charles Krauthammer is correct there is no discretion.
A large group of people from federal law.
Nevertheless the Obama administration is doing it.
Our attorneys to Homeland Security attorneys are actually confident.
This is within our authority to it to use some discretion.
So we can expect court challenges to the president's illegal alien pronouncement in charges that mr.
Obama has once again overstepped his constitutional court.
On the political front -- Romney believes -- president's move was dictated by vote pandering.
If he felt seriously about this he should have taken action but he had a Democrat house and senate but he didn't.
He saves these sort of things until four and a half months before the general election so he did it for politics well that certainly a bigger part of the equation.
And then there is the racist angle.
Whatever the right goes after President Obama some on the left cry racism.
Sam Donaldson the latest examples saying this in an email quote.
Many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there they oppose him not for his policies and political view but for who he is an African American.
So I guess I'm a racist if -- raise a legality question on the issue right Sam.
CNN -- Don lemon act O'Donnell sent on -- Let's face it.
Many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there they oppose him not for his policies and political view.
But for who he is an African American.
Finally the elephant in the Rose Garden thank you Sam Donaldson enough said there.
Bernie go over a lot more on that that later on.
Summing up talking points believes that illegal aliens who were dragged to the USA by the parent should be given special status.
But because he bypassed congress what the president did is flat out on constitutional.
