Sarah Palin: Obama's immigration action is 'giving the middle finger' to voters

Many Republicans aren't happy about President Obama's immigration announcement on Thursday. But former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) had some particularly choice words about the move, which will allow as many as five million people to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

In a statement on her official Facebook page, Palin said that Obama's executive action is "giving the middle finger" to voters.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) expressed a similar sentiment, stating that Obama has "squandered what little credibility he had left" and "cemented his legacy of lawlessness."
