Mexico's president made it clear who this EO benefited when he thanked Obama for writing the EO. People that care about the sovereignty of this country should take heed when Mexico's president says it helps his people out. Remember Mexico's president doesn't care about American citizens.

1) It's illegal: Since there are currently no work permits for illegal aliens, handing them out would require a change in the existing law. If this were a dictatorship like North Korea or Cuba, Dear Leader Barack Obama could simply issue a decree and change the law. Here in America we're a republic which means that he unquestionably, uncontroversially cannot issue work permits for illegal aliens without a bill passing through Congress. His attempt to do so may seem like a small matter to some people, but it sets an extremely dangerous precedent that undermines democracy in our country.
