These kids cannot vote once they get deferred action and they never will under this program. They are only under this temporary program at the discretion of the executive branch.

I think the people who are most upset are business owners who underpaid illegal workers. Now, if eligible, these workers will get real social security numbers and the employers will be forced to pay legitimate wages and withhold taxes and social security. Most of the individuals benefitting from the deferred action already have jobs so jobs will not be taken away. Rather, it should be a tax revenue boon as employers will be forced to withhold.

E-verify should be coupled with this program.
