When Obama promised to not bypass Congress on immigration

My how things change! Back in May 2011, President Obama took the position that changing immigration law without Congress is “not how a democracy works.” Breitbart reminds us of the about face:

"Sometimes when I talk to immigration advocates, they wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself, but that’s not how a democracy works," Obama said. "What we really need to do is to keep up the fight to pass genuine, comprehensive reform. That is the ultimate solution to this problem. That's what I'm committed to doing."
