GOP warns of ‘explosion’ if Obama rushes immigration executive action

by FOX News  |  published on November 14, 2014

Republican lawmakers blasted the White House on the heels of a Fox News report that President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action as early as next week – with one GOP leader warning there will be “an explosion” if the president moves too soon.

A source close to the White House told Fox News that Obama could announce as early as next Friday. The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency – it includes a plan to suspend deportations for millions.

As Democratic lawmakers and immigrant advocacy groups urge Obama to act as soon as possible, Republicans bristled at the apparently looming announcement.

“He will make the issue absolutely toxic for a decade,” Rep. David Schweikert, R-Ariz., said Thursday.
