ALERT: Obama to 'commit felony worth 5-years jail time'

(WND) -- Reaction to President Obama’s nationally televised speech granting amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants tonight was swift and cutting.

Ross Douthat, a conservative columnist for the New York Times, tweeted, “The fact that he felt the need to address and creatively redefine ‘amnesty’ but not ‘caesarism’ shows that I’ve failed as a pundit.”

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., also took to Twitter. Shortly after the speech concluded, he tweeted, “RETWEET if you agree. @BarackObama has no legal authority to issue Executive Amnesty.”

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, told CBS News, “My heart goes out to a lot of these folks in limbo … but you don’t solve [it] by misusing the Constitution. Frankly, I’m very disappointed in the president.”

Others outside of Congress were even more blunt in their criticism.

Michael Graham ‏of News Radio 106.7 in Atlanta tweeted: “Obama: Don’t let the fact that I’m giving you the finger and screaming ‘Screw the Constitution!’ stop you from doing what I want next time.”

John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary Magazine, said, “There is no logic in Obama’s speech that justifies limiting these reforms to only 5 million illegals.”

Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., said before the speech that Obama may be about to commit a felony worthy of five years jail time, reported PoliticalWire.com.

He told Slate that with his forthcoming executive actions on immigration, President Obama risks breaking a federal statute “making it a felony to aid, abet, or entice a foreigner to illegally enter the U.S.”

The president addressed the nation in a televised speech at 8 p.m. EST, in which he announced his plans to grant amnesty to up to 5 million illegals without the consent of Congress. They would be “brought in out of the shadows,” he said. And deportations would be focused on “felons, not families.”
