Sequestration could begin anytime Friday.

It's up to the president who, republicans say, could blunt the impact of these cuts but refuses.

President Obama had a brief chat with GOP leaders McConnell and Boehner today, but he hasn't called a meeting on the crisis 'til Friday, and Republicans charge he wants sequester to sting to blame the GOP.

Besides defense cuts, around US bases, schools that get special grants will lose millions, this school year.

Doesn't have to be; its political exploitation, charge republicans

Like hundreds of undocumented immigrants like Marcos Durazno getting released from jail this week in Arizona.

The president's decision to violate the law and release the illegal immigrants almost a week before the sequester is set to take effect reveals just such political exploitation," said Rep. John Carter (R)Texas.

Stop across the board cuts say Republicans.
