Everytime I hear 16-30 year olds referred to as kids blood shoots out of my eyeballs.

Ditto! Especially considering many of these "kids" are parents.

I could TOTALLY see God advocating that kind of behavior.
Uh; it's NOT our fault those Dream Act kids were here in the US; they need to cuss out their parents. If we're talking about Mexican kids which are MOST of the Dream ones; Mexico ain't that bad, it ain't Haiti. Sheesh!

you would think.

what the ACLU said was this:

Estimates are that roughly 80,000 kids would qualify in Arizona. The program provides safe harbor for two years.

"There are people who are given more long-term permission to be in the United States, green card holders, for instance," she said, "What we have with this program -- authorized presence -- also means that they are here legally. That means that they are eligible for a driver's license. The expiration date on such a thing usually matches the expiration date on their status. Two years in this case. But there is a process in both state and federal law for that to happen. She (Brewer) ignored all that by issuing this order."


so, according to the ACLU, obama snaps his fingers and they are eligible for everything, including driver's licenses.

it must be good to be king, but probably not so good for those 80,000 citizen kids now forced to compete with obama and his executive mandates.
And, I would be willing to bet the farm they will also be included in the ACA, along with their "immediate" family. Piecemeal amnesty at its finest.

Not a thing wrong with that. Now to stop that DACA nonsense.

Not according to anything I've seen you post.

Having a lot of debt is not the same as being broke.

Please be more specific. Are you saying that people that lost their homes due to debt weren't really broke? Are you saying that when someone files for bankruptcy with their debt ratio higher than their income they aren't really broke? Are you saying the cities filing for bankruptcy aren't really broke? When you are paying out more than you are taking in, and borrowing every year to pay your bills, you are not really broke? Really?????


That's my point. There was no reason to do this, hence me calling it a symbolic middle finger.
No reason to do this? They would be breaking Federal Laws if they did. The symbolic middle finger was given by Obama to taxpayers of this country.

And it's amazing what "immediate" family means to some people.

Wow, you speak for God ? Go figure that. I could TOTALLY see God advocating Jan Brewers decision as well.

Good for her. I wish more states had the stones to look out for the people instead of thier twisted progressive agenda.

Illegals have done alot of damage in the SW. So Cal is awash and will never recover. The crime, drugs and some of the most vicious gangs on the planet have been tied to illegal immigration. The So Cal E/R's are full of them and the un-checked handouts are bleeding the state dry.

Seal the boarder, eliminate the anchor rule and make them wait in line like everyone else.
