    Burglars are not uninvited house guests.

    Car-jackers are not under-rated drivers.

    Bank robbers are not making unauthorized withdrawals.

    Illegal aliens are not undocumented immigrants.

    And how is this fair to legal immigrants who play by the rules? Isn't this going to encourage more illegal immigration, not to mention the application fraud, something illegal aliens are very familiar with? How is granting work permits to more than one million illegal aliens going to reduce unemployment? This is all wrong. We need to replace our federal and state government officials asap.

    So what about the mamas and the poppas of these new hero illegals? Are they going to be rounded up and deported? Sorry, but this is a travesty of justice. What gives Obama the right to allow these people to stay in the United States after living here as an illegal immigrant most of their lives? Of course I feel sorry for them, but they should not be awarded residence in the US for breaking the law. Obama's executive privilege laws are pretty scary. He can do what he wants and bypass congress when he wants.

    "or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard, or Armed Forces of the United States"

    One news agency uses a false statement and the rest parrot it. An illegal alien cannot serve in the military.

    Disgusting, a President being blackmailed into ignoring laws and making his own, without congressional approval.

    And when will "deferred action" be granted to lawful U.S. citizens who don't want to bother obeying nuisance laws?

    I look forward to being able to tell the IRS, the Highway patrol, and even Salt Lake City parking enforcement to quit bothering me, I am protected by "deferred action."
