This is a slap in the face for those who come here legally! Our President has no
authority to change the rule of laws set forth by congress! He is way out of
bounds on this.
Pandering to Hispanics 1, America's unemployed 0This is an on
going program, they can renew their work permit every two years. Can you imagine
the waves of new illegal immigrants this will bring? It also
violates labor and immigration laws like crazy. 1-9 FORMS when hired asked for
citizenship, they need a social security number, they, by law, cannot work here
Obama is certainly determined that he only have six more months as President. I
guess this will work as well as his guarantee that he could get the Olympics to
Chicago. Americans will hold Obama in derision and ridicule in November the same
way the Olympic Committee did in their vote to NOT allow Chicago to be the site
of the Olympics. Obama sure is brilliant as a leader, isn't he?
Next year we will get the sob stories about separating families and how we need
to let the parents stay. Business gets surplus labor to drive down
wages, and Americans get to subsidize them with taxes.
I support the new policy, in principal. Deporting 11 million illegal immigrants
is not plausible, economically or socially, or morally. This will provide a
means to ensure that immigrant workers pay taxes into our economy. It is also
the humane thing to do. Some illegal immigrants brought here as children do not
even speak the language of their country of origin. How can anyone I good
consciousness deport such people?However, I am appalled at Pres.
Obama's approach. He is using his executive authority as a campaign tool.
He has up until this point deported more individuals than any other US
President. Now he does a complete 180, and of course the media praises him.
Were Romney to do the same thing, he would be labeled a disingenuous
flip-flopper. To truly benefit immigrants, real legislation, not a mere policy
change, is in order. Obama has essentially instituted Sen. Rubio's plan as
an executive order and claimed the credit for himself. This is a promise, not a
policy, and it is a ploy to garner the Latino vote.
Obama did not make this decision through congress in order to gather the
Hispanic vote. If anyone says they are against it, they will be spurned.
Political move only. Not done right or through the right process. Scary thought.
What a great day! This move should give President Obama a votes he needs to
secure his re-election. I hope he uses this same method to get rid of the silly
22nd Amendment. Viva El Presidente!
Richard B has it exactlly right. This will open the door for the bleeding hearts
like Orin Hatch and countless others to start the movement to give the parents
amnesty, allow grandfathers and grandmothers to come to the US. In other words
this will end up a chain migration event like you would not belkeve. This is
just what the Dms have wanted more voters who love gov.hand outs.This scam by
Obama like everything else he has done will change this country from what we
have known. It will not be for the betterd. Marxcist snake oil salesman that he
This policy change is a step in the right direction.
Here's another way to drive down the pay scale and add to the unempolyment
of the U.S. citzens and I hope we can vote this president out of office with
what he has done by stopping the deportation of the ilegalls. Their are thousand
of people waiting to come to this country legally and the president should be
working on the ways to get the one that have been waiting to come to this
country. No he is more worried about the poor ilegalls instead, I hope he will
give his paycheck to help cover the added burden the ilegalls will cost this
country. President Obama sure have not listen to the the people that help get
him elected, I for one willn't be voting for him again, I'll go with
Mitt Rommey when it comes time for vote in November.
No more milking cows and yard work for the illegal aliens that have taken
advantage of instate tuition and are now in eligible to take jobs like teaching,
engineering, practically any job other than those of the politicians that must
be citizens. Cheap labor employers that have been using these illegal aliens to
do the dirty work are going to have to get more from across the border.Too bad for the Americans that are unemployed who have just had hundreds of
thousands of illegal aliens put into competition with them for skilled jobs.
Simple solution to a simple problem. Quit hiring them and they will return to
their countries of origin. Penalize heavily those who hire illegal immigrants
and we will solve multiple problems. Unemployment will go down, health care
costs will decrease, education costs will decrease and the number of taxpayers
will increase. Penalizing employers who hire illegals is the best
jobs program President Romney could put in place on day one of his presidency.
It will never happen though because to many people are making to much money
hiring cheap labor. The republicans wine about the current president, but what
have the done about the problem in the last 30 years other than President
Reagan's mass amnesty not much of anything.
Bush issued similar edicts refusing to enforce laws. Democrats were outraged. I
was not impressed nor pleased with Bush's actions.Obama refuses
to enforce the law. Democrats are thrilled. I'm still not impressed or
pleased with Obama's lawlessness.
So when do the rest of us get to pick the law that we want to ignore (with no
consequences)?I feel for these kids, I really do. It is a
despicable thing that their parents have done to them by placing them in a
foreign country. BUT, it is not our problem, and we cannot solve it. It just
is not our problem to solve.
Watchdog said "I feel for these kids, I really do. It is a despicable thing
that their parents have done to them by placing them in a foreign country. BUT,
it is not our problem, and we cannot solve it. It just is not our problem to
solve." Actually it is our problem to solve. If we had not had non ethical
businesses hire their parents to work in this country for dimes on the dollar
these kids wouldn't be here. When are we going to quit punishing innocent
children and start punishing those who caused the problem? Don't hire
undocumented workers they quit coming to this country, hire undocumented workers
and they keep coming but in bigger numbers. A dime on the dollar here is still
better than they would make in their own country. Not that hard to figure out.
Don't blame their parents for trying to give their kids a better life blame
those who are taking advantage of these people that would be the Americans who
are hiring them.
Like always, Utah's comment section is filled with hate and lack of
information. I know more undocumented individuals getting an education than I do
citizens of this country. You know why? These people know firsthand what
struggle looks like. I support these Dreamers all the way and good for them.
Especially because they are good people and doing something most citizens of
this country don't do which is educating themselves.
