He should enforce the law rather than ignore it. He should lobby for change. 9mons ago from a Republican in Salt Lake City, UT.

Deporting Mexican people is not solving the problem. Both Mexcio (who needs to give incentives for Mexican people to stay there, like living wage, access to health care, etc) and America (not deporting immigrants who have given their lives to crossing the border, leaving their children to find a living wage, etc) need to be realistic about where we're at and where we're headed. Deportation does not get to the root of the problem. 9mons ago from a Green in Saint Paul, MN.

He waited way too long to become forceful. He also made serious mistakes in who he put in place to carry out important jobs...like launching the ACA programs. 9mons ago from a Green in Trenton, NJ.

Is he doing anything about it of consequence? Nothing of substance... 9mons ago from a Green in Manhattan, NY.

Should be a higher priority. 9mons ago from a Democrat in Broomfield, CO.

I think Obama does and will continue to anything that he wants. He has trampled all over our constitution. He has driven us to the edge of bankruptcy and isn't even getting as much as a tiny bit of the blame. He is by far the worst president that this country has ever dealt with but nobody else seems to think this. I must be the crazy one. 9mons ago from a Republican in Leavenworth, KS.

Disapprove, citizenship shouldn't be easy or automatic. 9mons ago from a Libertarian in Santa Clara, CA.

I wish he could do more, but I understand with the intransigence of the House Republicans it's not possible. 9mons ago from a Democrat in Federal Way, WA.

He has so much on his plate I don't expect much from him on this as he doesn't have the support of a Republican Congress. 9mons ago from a Democrat in Hattiesburg, MS.

On the one hand, he's deported more folks than any president in history. On the other hand, his rhetoric leans towards amnesty... So he has no stance to approve or disapprove of. 9mons ago from a Green in Placentia, CA.

I think he President Obama's hands are tied with regard to immigration. I think he would like reform immigration, however he is working with a Congress that can not even agree on the number of days in a week. 10mons ago from a Democrat in Sewell, NJ.

Strongly disapprove. The House holds the purse and his unwillingness to negotiate seems to reveal a lack of understanding of the three branches of government. Same with Sen. Reid. 10mons ago from a Republican in Glenrock, WY.

I approve of his attempts to move forward, I feel more conservatives need to expand their horizons. 10mons ago from a Green in Kaaawa, HI.

It's been a problem for decades. Make a path, access fines and taxes. 10mons ago from a Libertarian in West Lafayette, IN.

Obama's handling immigration? He doesn't seem to be doing anything!. 10mons ago from a Libertarian in Tampa, FL.

Intentions are good but the outcome will most likely be nothing like its intentions. 10mons ago from a Libertarian in Lees Summit, MO.

Should grant citizenship to those brought to US as minors and should support a liberal path to citizenship for other non-criminal undocumented immigrants. 10mons ago from a Democrat in Glenside, PA.
