Exactly comrade. Socialism is for the people, not the socialists.

at the expense of the country, also as you would expect.

but rules aren't for illegal immigrants, just for citizens.

let's see how that plays out in terms of moral hazard.

Yawn. The emails show nothing except that (oh the shock) ICE was competent enough to be aware that he was Obama's uncle.

Competence is not special treatment,

Did Obama himself force them to give "preferential treatment" or did ICE do so of their own volition?

They call that NEPOTISM around here and it is frowned upon if not illegal in many places.

Besides, Obama stated he wouldn't do that.

Yes but if we kept count of everything Obama said he would not do, but lied, we would be writing a book about it, and not a best seller at that.

I wonder how many more illegal family members he has in this country?

Apparently very few read the article or your CONFIRMATION BIAS is showing.

“It certainly appears that Obama’s uncle is receiving favorable treatment from the Obama administration, which explains that we had to sue in federal court to obtain this material,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton

Email shows ICE delayed deporting Obama

It certainly appears

We need more than this as proof from a slanted/conservative group.

I saw no evidence of this in the article.

No matter your political bent, you should have a problem with the favoritism that was apparently extended to Obama's uncle.

Will any of you denounce the President? Of course you won't.
Why don't you read the article and tell us where the proof is. You walk GOOSESTEP and don't read the articles EVER! Read post #19
