Obama is giving amnesty to the same percent of people as Republican Presidents (following his strategy of implementing GOP policies even though GOP does an about face & starts opposing their own policy recommendations ).
History exposes GOP immigration outcry as bogus - Rachel Maddow reviews instances of Presidents Reagan and H.W. Bush taking executive action on immigration, contrary to anti-Obama Republicans who insist that President Obama's proposed action in the absence of a bill from Congress is unprecedented.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's anticipated order that would shield millions of immigrants now living illegally in the U.S. from deportation is not without precedent.

GOP employs selective memory on immigration - John Stanton, Buzzfeed DC bureau chief, talks with Rachel Maddow about the extent to which Republican animosity toward President Obama biases them against policies, like immigration reform, that they might otherwise support.
The immigration drama by the GOP is just plain hypocrisy, as usual. Obama is giving amnesty to the same percent of people as Bush & Reagan before him. Unfortunately, Reagan's policy of death squads for South America, courtesy the US Government, is bearing fruit and we now have more immigrants fleeing the destruction GOP policies caused. So the number of people that are getting amnesty is larger.
GOP & it's pet, Fox News, may argue that percentage doesn't matter for this case only numbers do. This is normal, they use this strategy with many of their lies & deceptions, i.e. they use numerical numbers when they want to dissuade someone from considering an idea to make it seem like too much and they use percentages for stuff they want to promote (this varies while carrying on with the same theme of lying & deceiving it's viewers... it's not considered to be treason no matter how many US Citizens they hurt cause the Courts said it's OK to lie and call it news as "free speech". It's like giving Hitler permission to do his lies because it qualifies as free speech. Do you see something seriously wrong with this logic? Conservative in the courts didn't. That is even more disturbing then the regular lies of the GOP).
The following videos by the Daily Show proves this point of GOP hypocrisy about numbers & percentages.
Example 1 Of GOP Hypocrisy:
World of Class Warfare - Warren Buffett vs. Wealthy Conservatives - Warren Buffett's op-ed is a thoughtful treatise on the advantages the super-wealthy currently enjoy at the hands of the tax code, or to put it another way, "class warfare." (4:48)
Notice: Fox-News/GOP talk of percentages for the minority group they protect but numerical figures with examples of piles of money when attacking majority interests. (Get it?)
Example 2 of GOP Hypocrisy:
World of Class Warfare - The Poor's Free Ride Is Over - The government could raise $700 billion by either taking half of everything earned by the bottom 50% or by raising the marginal tax rate on the top two percent. (6:32):
A. "We gotta start somewhere... that's a million dollars (that we could save) - in contrast to the 700 billion we could save to reduce the deficit from the rich and unfairly untaxed (i.e. there is class warfare but its from the ones who are trying to aggravate people by projecting what they are doing onto Buffet).
[The answer is YES, we can start somewhere, such as the solution below or by making the taxes proportionate between rich and poor. For example 20% from a poor person could lead to struggling to survive while 20% from someone with a billion dollars can't possibly leave them struggling to survive. Of course, 20% from a rich person WILL be more money than 20% from the poor person. Be conscious of which modes of measurement the GOP/Fox-News is using to understand where & how they are trying to fool you - when they aren't throwing you a bone to seem nice! ]
B . From fox news: Dont tax the rich but 'broaden the tax base' - ignore/cover over the realty of the tax codes.
C. Taxing the majority (poor) instead of taxing the minority (super rich by comparison) this is the very definition of despotism/tyranny.
D. Heritage institute (Koch Brother funded) are trying to create the image of poor being wealthycause they have normal second world amenities. (i.e. this will lower standard of living).
