Krauthammer: Obama immigration plan a ‘constitutionally odious proposal’.

Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that a proposed plan for President Obama to overhaul U.S. immigration policy through executive action “is a constitutionally odious proposal.”

The 10-point plan, which was contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency and obtained exclusively by Fox News, could allow upwards of 4.5 million illegal immigrants living with their American-born children to stay in the U.S., and expand deferred action for immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.

Other elements include promoting the new naturalization process by giving a 50 percent discount for the first 10,000 applicants who come forward, and a State Department immigrant visa program offering another 500,000 immigrants a path to citizenship through tech jobs.

US to affirm that UN torture ban applies overseas

The U.S. is telling the United Nations that it now considers a ban against torture to apply to prisoners held by the U.S. overseas.

Under the Bush administration, the U.S. interpreted the U.N. Convention Against Torture to apply only within U.S. borders. That meant the U.S. didn’t have to follow the ban on cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment at places like the Guantanamo Bay prison or aboard U.S. ships.

President Barack Obama took a different approach and banned certain interrogation methods after taking office. But until now, the U.S. hadn’t formally conveyed that policy to the U.N. body monitoring compliance with the treaty.

The White House says the U.S. will tell the U.N. this week that it interprets the ban as applying anywhere under U.S. government control, including Guantanamo Bay.
