Discriminatory in my opinion. So those without legal relatives here don't qualify, but those with, do? Who cares if they have relatives here? Illegal is illegal. Should we allow citizens who commit crimes but have close family ties to avoid sentencing or be given house arrest rather than the prison time their crimes call for? This is completely absurd!

Having legal family is no reason to be given a pass on breaking laws!

Another version of amnesty!

It gives all the more reason to have anchor babies.

Yes, this is disgusting and your analogy comparing a citizen lawbreaker to an illegal alien lawbreaker and the rules being bent for the latter but not the former is right on. I am beginning to think that this country doesn't belong to us citizens anymore but illegal invaders instead.

DHS To Grant Illegal Aliens

Quote:
In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.”

The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen.

Does he lay off all our BP agents and dismantle Homeland Security?
