    It's called an executive order, and Obama can sign one ordering the deportations limited to felonies and major misdemeanors at any time he chooses.  He has, so far, chosen not to do that.

    As for those agents, sure, he can fire them.  But being federal employees, they have more rights than the ordinary American worker.  They can be reinstated.  And such firings would be potent ammunition for the Romney team, too.
