What exactly does all this mean?

Time for Speaker Boehner to Keep His Word on Amnesty

It’s time for the party to fight. The American people swept Republicans to majorities in 2014 largely because of opposition to Obama’s executive amnesty. Many of them would have preferred to have that fight in December. But here we are now. Will Speaker Boehner keep his word and fight amnesty now?

Senator Cruz: Why I tried to block Obama’s amnesty

Amnesty is wrong, and it is unfair. It’s unfair to millions of legal immigrants, to the 92 million Americans who are currently not in the labor force, and to minority communities across the nation struggling with record unemployment.

How Republicans Could Nail Obama on Illegals

How Republicans Could Nail Obama on Illegals

By far the most egregious part of Obama’s amnesty will be the issuance of work permits and legal status to those who broke the law by either jumping the border or overstaying their visas. So why not defund green card processing down to zero — all of it — and instead give the money to schools being overwhelmed by the influx of illegal immigrants?
