So sad that some people think its ok to break the law under the pretense "its helping my children"

Parents who rob a bank to rob their children are not much different.

He is not qualified for Obamacare. The waiver states he does not have legal status.

"On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several key guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and would then be eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred action does not provide an individual with lawful status."

When is the press going to start reporting the truth?

This a potential interesting little problem that the ACA folks probably didn't see coming. It will also be interesting to see just how they plan to help illegals "get around" their illegal status and still be able to sign up. I mean, will there be commercials run, at government expense, on Spanish language outlets that say, it is OK to sign up for health care and be here illegally? Or to sign up to be legal first then get your health plan? Eventually rational Americans will see that the Democrat plan to legalize all illegals, and or ignore those that are here anyway will be an unsustainable financial burden that will take away benefits from the citizens. Likely things like Medicare/Medicade, Social Securtiy, Veterans Benefits, ect. will suffer. Does rational America really want to support that? I hope not.

Well parents, there is always the self-deport option.

Illegal immigrants are extra weight on a sinking ship.

Our political leaders need to be focused on this country!
