Obama Says He 'Probably' Can't Legalize Immigrants

President Obama said that he "probably" cannot legalize undocumented workers by executive order -- a decision he might be faced with if Congress fails to pass comprehensive immigration reform, the Washington Post reports.

Said Obama: "Probably not. I think that it is very important for us to recognize that the way to solve this problem has to be legislative. I can do some things and have done some things that make a difference in the lives of people by determining how our enforcement should focus."

"Some on the left have argued that Obama could simply legalize illegal immigrants himself -- pointing to his previous executive order on the matter."
