We paid thousands to educate these young people in our elementary and high schools. The ones being given temporary stays are high school grads and college educated which is more than many of the racist morons on this forum have going for them. Some will have served in our armed forces, a sacrifice not shared by Mr. Romney or his neocon advisors. It is just common sense that they stay and contribute now.

News to Obama!! That's what the founders intended!! You're not KING!!!

Racist morons? Since when is being an illegal alien a race? They are damned lucky they received an education on our dime. Time to go home and use it to benefit their own countries. We don't need anymore competition for jobs here. That isn't common sense.

The issue I have with everything to do with immigration issues....is that it seems to be culturally biased....towards a dominant culture....this new platform will help many of the Haitian youth I worked with....but it seems to me like so many things are skewed and biased towards one culture....and I wonder if this will be applied fairly? Or will there be a "separate" set of rules applied to those who don't speak Spanish? I have seen it happen over and over....a Haitian student with limited English is placed in an ESL class....for students who speak English as a Second language...I go in the classroom....and the teacher is speaking Spanish! What?! Haitian kids don't speak Spanish! Why was this teacher speaking Spanish in a classroom for kids with limited English? Drives me crazy.

I doubt this will really be applied fairly.

I was waiting to see how long it was going to take for someone to pull the race card. Racist morons? Ha Ha Ha. You mean the people who actually want to keep this country from being overrun with criminals who have no regards for our laws?

Is the name calling the best you can do?

We have laws in this country. We can't enforce the ones we find convenient and forget about the rest.

I want all illegal aliens gone, including the ones from Brazil who turned my home state of MA into trash.

Oops I guess that makes me a racist too! Or would that be "intolerant" since Brazilian is not a race but a nationality? Oh wait, I am Brazilian. Damn!

Try again.

We don't want them serving in our armed forces if they are only doing it to get citizenship. Can't you see how this is wrong for legal people? For those of us who were born here? You are whining and crying for illegal immigrants, but where is your defense for legal people?

It is not common sense that they stay. It benefits them and puts a disadvantage on everyone else.

You forgot GED because that counts too.

A 30 year old with a GED will be able to get an indefinite work visa.
