White House Fuzzy on Timing of Obama's Executive Amnesty

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted.

Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible.

But since then, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest won’t clarify the timing of Obama’s executive action. 

Recent reports in Politico and the L.A.Times cite internal discussions in the White House on the timing of the decision, which may be delayed until after the mid-term elections in November.

Now it is unclear whether Obama does plan to act by the end of the summer.

As reporters continued to press Earnest about the timing, he grew frustrated, insisting that Obama was still committed to act alone on immigration.
