For them, the slightest connection to gangs — however tenuous — may lead to detention and deportation rather than the legal status they dream of when they apply. This legal barrier may affect countless of undocumented people, but it has been lost in the excitement over Obama’s executive action last month that will extend protection to an estimated 5 million immigrants here illegally. The plan expands the number of people eligible for deferred deportation if they came to the U.S. as children or if they are the parents of American citizens.

I don't care: we DON'T want your kind here in the US. Especially ANYBODY who's had run ins with the legal system.

What about felony ID theft? How many of those given a stay of deportation will have been guilty of that? Yet you know darn well that will be overlooked. Many of their other crimes will either not be detected or will be forgiven also. The fact that Obama has given them a stay of deportation rather than deporting them tells me all I want to know about what is going to be overlooked, not detected or forgiven just because they gave birth on our soil or were brought here illegally as kids.

Yup, the government's going to bend over backwards to let these criminals stay. I think nothing short of convictions for drug trafficking, manslaughter, or murder will trigger a deportation.
