Now, friends, siblings and spouses who for years shared the same precarious status find themselves on opposite sides of a divide, one preparing for lawful work or access to student loans, the other bracing for the tap of an immigration official.

That difference divides people like Nelly and Alex Cruz, siblings who came from Honduras six years ago without their parents. Mr. Cruz, who was 12 then, may now be able to begin a new life, free from the fears that have hung over him; but his sister was 18 when they came.

Oh, I thought they were all brought here by their parents during infancy or early childhood. Of course, now that almost 2 million have been offered deferred action, it would be unfair to separate their families.

Yes -- the illegals mean for NO ONE to be returned home.

Obama's plan might not be so bad if only the 2 million brought here as children stayed although his requirements are non-existent for them.

Now that they're learning their addresses, they no longer have the excuse they don't know where the illegals are, they can start deporting all the others.

But also they need to require proof of all those illegals claiming they were brought in by parents, lower the age they were brought in to under 4, and require that they be fluent in English and also have extensive background checks done on them. And since they are now 16-31 years of age, there is no reason at all not to deport the parents and other family members.
