A lesson

When interest groups turn the heat up on Obama, he responds.

President Obama will announce a new immigration policy today that will allow some undocumented youths to avoid deportation and receive work permits to remain in the United States. Students in the U.S. who are in deportation proceedings or those who would have qualified for the DREAM Act and have yet to come forward to Department of Homeland Security officials will not be deported and will be allowed to work in the United States.

Though exact details of the plan are still unclear, it could benefit as many as one million undocumented studentsliving in the country, and it will almost certainly have tangible benefits for the long-term health of the American economy.

  1. Well…he responds when an election is looming.

    WTF didn’t he do this right after getting in to office? It wouldn’t have messed in any way with legislation. Or do it in any month leading up to this Big Deal.

    On WNYC this morning, heard some grateful people who were still upset it had taken so, so long.

    If BO was after kudos, he may not get that many.

    AND, if he’s no reelected Pres. Romney can just negate the order. I think people will be OK until the end of their two years. And then, their name is right there for a prez to order ICE to pick them up.

    I bet people whose loved ones have been deported, but could have stayed were this order in place, are majorly pissed.

  2. Oh come on – it’s only until he’s re-elected then he can have them all detained at Guantanemo or just OFFED by a DRONE right here on our soil – and no, it’s not a joke! The man is a KNOWN LIAR as evidenced by his promises vs his deeds during his administration.

    Here listen to this and then see if it matters at all.


  3. of course that would be a benevolent action, had Obama not thrown millions of US citizens unable to find work, on top of the train tracks.

    (to qualify, I have issues with the massive deportation and hideous treatment of those walkinig the border from Central America, nonetheless, the first liveable wage jobs should go to those born here, then to those who have clean (not bought) citizenship/a non-visa’d escape from a horrid reality, and then, not bought visas)
