There was a time when on any slow news day I could go to Orly Taitz’ web site and find some crazy birther thing to write about. Those days are over. Nowadays Taitz is more likely to be talking about Ebola, Muslims, conservative candidates, impeachment or gays—and more than those: immigrants. Taitz wants illegals out of the country, and free trade agreements canceled.
The latest from her in immigration is the claim that next week, Obama is going to issue an executive order implementing some kind of amnesty. Here’s her headline:
Obama to announce theft of some 5 million jobs from American cities, aiding and abetting invasion, committing treason. Call every member of Congress, demand immediate impeachment and removal from office of Indo-Kenyan usurper Obama
Where does she get such crazy ideas?
President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News.
The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.

Taitz didn’t accurately characterize the Fox story that she cited, and the plan (assuming Fox is right) is for deferred deportation, not amnesty.
Whatever your take on immigration policy, the fact is that a dysfunctional Congress puts more power in the hands of the President.
