Make no mistake: the Republicans likely to run in 2016 for the White House are all criticizing President Obama over his so-called executive amnesty for certain illegal immigrants.

But they aren’t all on the same page. In their statements Thursday, some Republicans made it clear they oppose the substance of Obama’s policy. Others simply emphasized their objection to his executive action on procedural grounds.

Speaking from the White House Thursday, Obama announced a sweeping executive action to unilaterally halt the deportation for five million illegal immigrants.
