Obama incorrect his position 'hasn’t changed' on using executive authority to address immigration
By W. Gardner Selby November 21, 2014

Look ma, we're on TV again.

The "Capital Tonight" program from TWC News asked us about President Barack Obama's claim in a recent press conference that his position hadn't changed about his lack of executive authority to change immigration policies.

Obama insisted as much.

Steve Contorno and PolitiFact in Washington, D.C., concluded otherwise.
