Head fake? Obama never signed amnesty order http://t.co/R74g6USjeq

…which claims that the amnesty executive order allegedly issued by President Barack Obama never happened. Yes, Seriously!
“Today the National Archives and Records Administration, responsible for such maintaining such filings, said no such executive order was ever signed or filed, confirming WND’s report Wednesday.”
“A National Archives librarian, Jeffrey Hartley, made the confirmation in an email Thursday to WND.”
““As I indicated, it would appear that there is not an Executive Order stemming from the President’s remarks on November 20 on immigration,” Hartley wrote. (World Net Daily)”
Due to my lack of faith in WND’s reporting, I decided to verify (or rather disprove) what appeared to be an outrageous claim by visiting:
- Federal Register (Executive Orders)
- National Archives (Executive Orders)
- WhiteHouse.Gov: Executive Orders
To my surprise President Obama either never issued an executive order or it was never recorded (the latter which I would be skeptical about).
So my question to all the politicos, lawyers, pundits, & “informed citizens” is:
If President Obama never issued an executive order, then what are all of these states suing him for‽
