There is no doubt that this was just an election year stunt. The Latino
community celebrates and advocates for law and order decry it for what it is.You want enforceable immigration laws? That is easy. Make the laws
self enforcing. All you have to do is offer a large cash reward, like $10 grand.
(paid for with a large fine on businesses that hire illegal aliens) to the first
person to turn in an employer that knowingly hires illegal aliens or looks the
other way when they hire them. You also have to make certain that illegal
aliens are eligible for the reward.Do the same with land lords. Make
it illegal to rent to illegal aliens and how do you enforce it? Require that
the land lords refund 100% of the rent.Deporting people who came
here when they were very young and have been raised in the USA is cruel. They
may not even know the language of their home country. Issuing an executive
order is just another attempt to make an end run around congress.Obama should be impeached for his abuse of power in regards to his use of
Not a fan of Obama until yesterday. It's about time something sensible was
done to begin to fix the crazy immigration mess. Of course it's politics.
It's ALL politics. Politics can be used for good or ill. This time
it's good. Now let's see if Congress can make a permanent fix instead
of whining about the president.
They are not eligible since they broke the law and run from deportation. Or will
Obama erase all crimes to make them all eligible.
The separation choice is theirs.
To SLars,Violation of immigration law is not a criminal offense.
Rather, it is a civil violation of immigration law. While I am generally not an
Obama fan, I applaud this move.
So let me get this straight. We are celebrating the fact that these sisters are
allowed to continue to break US immigration law because the President acted like
a dictator and wrote an executive order telling Immigration Control to break the
law by halting deportations.Didn't the President say to a
latino group last year that he can't fix the immigration laws without
getting the laws changed?Tell me liberals, why are we celebrating
breaking the law? Shouldn't we be ashamed of these actions?
RBN- Violation of immigration law may not be a criminal offense, but the
offenses committed by illegals once they get here are. Illegals routinely commit
criminal offenses like fraud, forgery, perjury, ID theft, tax evasion, etc. etc.
etc. In fact, they HAVE to commit those types of crimes to remain here illegally
and work here illegally. When are people going to learn that illegals are NOT
victims, but rather they are criminals and they have no one to blame but
themselves if their families are broken up due to their criminal activities?
