Don't compare Reagan and Bush executive action on immigration to the dictatorial actions of President Obama. There is a major difference.

Your liberal friends or family may post to Facebook a graphic like this one, such as my liberal sister-in-law did, that says Obama's Executive Order on amnesty is no different than the executive amnesty granted by Reagan or Bush.  This is going to be the primary line of defense to charges that Obama was acting more like a King than a president. I expect to hear this repeated often.

Don't believe it.  Obama's amnesty really was unprecedented and unconstitutional.  Obama's amnesty was going against the will of the Congress.  Reagan and Bush's executive orders on immigration were to fulfill the desire of Congress. They made administrative corrections designed to carry out congressional intent. For a more detailed examination of the differences between executive action of Reagan and Bush on immigration and the dictatorial actions of President Obama, read this article: Obama’s Unilateral Amnesty Really Will Be Unprecedented—and Unconstitutional.
