More than 30 immigration advocates will gather Wednesday at the office of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) says the “huddle” is all about “getting ready” for executive action on immigration from the White House.
What am I missing? Are all illegals moving to Chicago? I did suggest that idea a few months ago. @costareports

Gutiérrez is getting pretty excited about President Obama making a move. Breitbart.com reports:
“It’s music to my ears that someone would have a source at the White House that say it’s 5 million. Let me just say, tomorrow, the next day, and all of this week we’re getting ready,” he said.
Gutiérrez appeared on MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart after MSNBC senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing said that senior White House officials expect Obama to grant executive amnesty to around 5 million illegal immigrants after his European trip to Estonia and Wales next week.
Reports have indicated that the executive action President Obama is planning to make by the end of summer could legalize some 5 million undocumented immigrants.
