The foremost lobbying group in the United States that works tirelessly for amnesty and benefits for illegal aliens, expects at a minimum, an executive action by President Barack Obama around Labor Day that will affect 5 million undocumented immigrants currently in the country.

Speaking to Breitbart News on Tuesday, La Raza (The Race) adviser Lisa Navarrete said that 5 million was “the floor number” the ethnic front group expected from Obama.

“We have been very clear with the president that if he’s going to do this, he should be bold, and the population of people who would be covered under the Senate bill that’s just been waiting one House vote to pass would be a good starting point,” she said.

Referencing this pathway to citizenship, Navarrete indicated that immigration reform was inevitable, “and wasting time and resources waiting is not wise.”

Former La Raza head Cecilia Muñoz currently serves the president as director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, giving the ethnic front group excellent positioning to harp on this growing power base for the Democratic Party.

Uncharacteristically, the Obama administration has remained secretive about any forthcoming announcement from the man “dedicated to transforming American society,” but his calculus always gives potential election results the highest priority.

Currently ISIS has displaced the porous southern border in the headlines, but “for the Latino community,” Navarrete emphasized, “it [immigration] makes a huge difference. So that’s why…for us, it’s much more a topic for 2016 and the Republican intransigence, [they] are completely botching the issue, and that’s going to have enormous political costs.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said repeatedly that immigration would be discussed in the next session, and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., sent a letter to Obama on Tuesday stating that sweeping executive action by him would doom any “realistic path forward on comprehensive reform for the foreseeable future.”

The X Factor looming over Obama’s indecisiveness and gnawing at La Raza’s innards, is what if there is a profound negative reaction by the public to bold executive amnesty, how does that impact the 2014 and 2016 elections?
