PARDON, NOT DELAY:

Dem: Obama should consider stopping all deportations of illegal immigrants (Justin Sink, 10/25/13, The Hill)
    
President Obama "has the responsibility" to stop deportations of illegal immigrants if Congress proves unable to pass a comprehensive immigration bill, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) argued in an interview published Friday. [...]

In an interview with Telemundo in September, the president said that advocates of immigration reform shouldn't expect him to use prosecutorial discretion to address the issue if Congress is unable to agree to reform legislation.

Obama said doing so would mean "essentially ... ignoring the law" and would be "very difficult to defend legally."

Just issue a blanket pardon for immigration violations.
