Some analysts believed President Obama waited until after the midterm elections to announce his unilateral immigration-reform package to give Democrats a better chance to keep control of the Senate.
If that was the case, the plan didn’t work out, with the GOP set to be the majority party starting in January.
But conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly believes Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder also used the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, for political purposes.
“I think that Obama and his attorney general really fomented [unrest] in order to hopefully win the election on November 4,” Schlafly said. “They wanted to inflame people in order to get their voters out to vote.

“I think it has backfired, and the Republicans won a tremendous victory despite everything,” she added.
A grand jury is deciding the fate of Officer Darren Wilson. An announcement on whether there will be charges could come any day.
Schlafly, whose recently published book “Who Killed the American Family?” came out just days before she turned 90, said Obama and Holder will be culpable if riots break out in Ferguson.

The unrest in Ferguson is not the only bubbling controversy in the country right now. On Thursday, Obama announced deportation relief for up to 5 million people currently in the U.S. illegally.
Schlafly said she thinks that move, like the work in Ferguson, was done for political reasons.
“Obama’s moving ahead with his attempt to do all kinds of illegal things in order to bring in illegal aliens and give the Democrats more votes,” she said. “That’s what it’s for.”
The veteran activist said she has talked to many immigrants who came to the U.S. as teenagers two or three generations ago. Their parents taught them to leave their native ways behind and fully immerse themselves in America.
“Those people came in and became 200 percent Americans,” …read more
