Eric Holder, Jeh Johnson to Give Final Input on Executive Amnesty One Week After Midterms

Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will reportedly give President Barack Obama their final executive amnesty recommendations in two weeks, a week after the midterm elections in which Republicans could take back Congress.

And pro-amnesty activists are unhappy that Obama, who has promised to unilaterally act on immigration "before the end of the year," may not enact the biggest executive amnesty possible.

According to BuzzFeed, the final executive amnesty recommendations "are expected to be delivered in the next two weeks." Obama administration officials are reportedly deciding whether illegal immigrants have had to be in the country for five or ten years to receive temporary amnesty and work permits. In addition, officials are considering whether the parents of DREAMers should be given temporary amnesty and work permits. 

As Breitbart News first reported, the Obama administration has ordered immigrant ID cards to prepare for a potential surge ahead of Obama's planned executive amnesty. But amnesty advocates told BuzzFeed that they are disappointed that Obama may only give amnesty to just 3 million illegal immigrants. 

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has said that he demanded interest in the form of a bigger and broader executive amnesty after the White House asked him and other Hispanic leaders for "forbearance" after Obama missed his self-imposed "by the end of summer" deadline to help Senate Democrats preserve the Senate. And a "Draft Gutierrez" for president group is reportedly planning to convince him to run for president if Obama's executive amnesty is underwhelming. 

Pro-amnesty advocates vowed to the left-wing outlet that they were going to "unleash the ferocity of the movement." Another pro-amnesty advocate said the Obama administration has "disrespected" illegal immigrants by not granting them amnesty as soon as possible.
