W. James Antle, III has an article at American Spectator explaining the contents of the memo. Basically it's a backdoor amnesty plan; it gives United States Citizen and Immigration Services options on how to circumvent the legal process of immigration:
One proposal contained in the memo was that the USCIS grant "parole in place," which comes with a work permit and the right to apply for a green card, to various illegal immigrants. Another suggestion was to give "deferred action," delaying deportation indefinitely and preserving eligibility to apply for a work permit, to illegal aliens who would have benefited from the DREAM Act.
It should surprise no one that this administration believes this is even an option for them. This is the administration that has expanded governmental authority to new heights.
As Charles Krauthammer pointed out:
It is just a bad idea and bad politics. It’s lawless. These are people who are appointed people in the administration deciding because Congress hasn’t enacted a law it wants enacted, it will do it by creating or finding loopholes in existing law. It is like the administration, which was not able to get approval by Congress for cap-and-trade or carbon tax, and having the EPA do it by itself. That’s not the way the Constitution says our government runs. The laws are done by Congress. The administration is supposed to administer.
The will of the American people be damned! Obama knows more than you do and he's smarter than you, and he knows what's best for you! He won!
Since we haven't seen his college transcripts, we don't know if Obama studied any basic civics classes, but I'm guessing not.

Why would the administration even be looking at such options? Can these illegals also gain voting rights by decree of the USCIS? It should strike fear in the hearts of every American that this administration is even looking at ways to circumvent the constitution for purposes of amnesty, that this administration is waging war with Arizona over immigration, that this administration is acting like we're under a dictatorship. What the leader wants, we'll find a way to get. What will be next, after amnesty? What Constitutional laws will we banish by decree?
Again, Congress makes the laws. Not Obama.
We are a nation of laws. Or at least, we used to be.
