A couple of points.

There was no Executive Order concerning illegal immigrants. DHS Secretary Napolitano issued a memorandum to the Border Patrol, Immigration Service, and ICE with guidance on how to treat certain illegal immigrants.

There was no amnesty (or pardon) for illegal immigrants. The DHS memo states that it is an exercise of prosecutorial discretion under existing laws to temporarily defer removal proceedings. And, like other situations (i.e. refugees or political asylum seekers) in which aliens are allowed to stay in the country temporarily, the aliens are allowed to legally get a job (better they pay for their upkeep than the txpayers).
