Once again, the president who blames all our ills on Congress won’t even give them a wave and a howdy-do when making sweeping changes that will effect every American.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.
The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. [highlight]It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act[/highlight], a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.
The youth unemployment rate, already at 14% conservatively, will no doubt rise. And that will be Congress’s fault as well.
