Breaking news! Well here it is. Another back door amnesty/Dream Act by Obama and right around election time. Just what we need with millions of Americans out of work also. I give up!

"The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin giving work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of a growing Latino electorate that has opposed administration deportation policies.
The administration's decision will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants. Two senior administration officials described the plan to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity ahead of its expected announcement Friday".

More political pandering without any regard to what is in the best interests of the country as a whole. And end run around Congress which has voted over and over again against amnesty. Unreal.

Great move by Obama. Republicans would call the president a genius if the president were a Republican in this instance.

How is this a good move with millions of Americans out of work? He did this a few months ago for 300,000 illegal aliens. That makes over 1 million people more vying for what scarce jobs their are. So the Republicans should snub their noses at our immigration laws to gain the Latino vote? What kind of group would expect a politiician to pander to their group in direct violation of our immigration laws?

Obama even bypassed congress once again on this issue. Despicable!

"...since led law-abiding lives." Yeah, breaking our laws, disrespecting and violating our sovereignty, and taking jobs from real citizens and legal immigrants is very law-abiding.

I guess the real problem is a formerly great nation that elected this President. That was the fatal blow. Grotesque displays like this are just blood spurts from the death throes.

Although it is a bad move in this economy for all Americans and legal residents, it is kind of understandable that a person who came here as a child with their parents illegally has no real ties to the country they came from. A person who came as a child illegally didn't make the choice to come or stay where they were. Their parents made the choice for them. So they are in a terrible legal (or illegal) position as adults.

Seriously? I think any party willing to throw Americans under the bus just to gain the latino vote is playing too hard into the political game and is a fraud of a politician, and a fraud of a President in this case. President should be looking out for the welfare of the legal citizens not illegal immigrants.

So the pain the child suffers by being moved back to their parents' country or origin falls upon the irresponsible and law-breaking parents. Since the Obama Regime is arguing that these people are good, law-abiding people, then it follows if our nation consistently enforces tough laws by deporting the law-breakers, good people like this will not break into the country in the first place and risk harming their child-to-be's happiness.
