Obama Crafts Executive Actions Behind Closed Doors

New York Times: "When President Obama announced in June that he planned to bypass congressional gridlock and overhaul the nation's immigration system on his own, he did so in a most public way: a speech in the White House Rose Garden."

"Since then, the process of drafting what will likely be the only significant immigration changes of his presidency -- and his most consequential use of executive power -- has been conducted almost entirely behind closed doors, where lobbyists and interest groups invited to the White House are making their case out of public view."
