Voters in Oregon overwhelmingly rejected a ballot measure on November 4 that would have upheld a law passed in 2013 granting "driver’s cards" to illegal immigrants. By a margin of 68 percent to 32 percent, voters in every one of Oregon’s 36 counties except for Multnomah (where Portland is located) rejected Ballot Measure 88 — a voters’ referendum on SB 833, a bill passed in the Oregon legislature and signed into law by Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber on May 1, 2013. SB 833 would have granted driver cards (in lieu of driver's licenses) to individuals “without requiring a person to provide proof of legal residence in the United States.”

Congress should consider impeaching President Obama if he tries to change the requirements of immigration law by executive action, veteran Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. (R-N.C.) said.

President Obama is likely to unveil a plan for executive action on immigration as early as November 21, according to a source close to the White House. The plan includes expanding deferred action for illegal immigrants, which effectively grants amnesty for migrants brought into the country illegally as children.

A review of the historical record finds no constitutional basis exists for granting citizenship to the children of foreigners on U.S. soil.

During a post-election press conference at the White House on November 5, President Obama said, “before the end of the year, we’re going to take whatever lawful actions that I can take that I believe will improve the functioning of our immigration system.”
