I'm so glad this action is being taken..
Those against it seem to forget there is only one segment of the population that isn't here via immigration...but then again, they are also the same ones who ignore the plight of the only true non-immigrants in this country, our Native Americans.

When I saw a clip of McCain talking about this, I bristled.
The only reason the hypocritical gop is even considering it is they figure they lost the election in big part because they lacked the Latino vote.

Surprise GOP ~ I don't see that changing ! ;-) thanks Cal

good to see Obama taking charge to do the things that are ethically right. One can't get these things 100% right, but one has to try to get a bit closer.

As they say the devel is in the details. As someone who has a foriegn wife (European), can they just design a system that works for everyone.

A further step in Obama's agenda to dilute the United States power structure.

I have opposed this, not because people who are here illegally are "inferior", but because: (1) U.S. population growth is too high, and (2) They jumped the line in front of people who bothered to enter legally. I still oppose it.

BUT the reason this situation has become acute is that our government has been lax about enforcing laws-- including not tracking people who are in the U.S. on expired visas, and not sufficiently penalizing employers who
hire illegal residents.

So let's welcome these people who are currently in the shadows, but it must be made very clear to all levels of government that it is their responsibility to clean up their acts.

Federal Court Indicts President Obama Will not see the end of his second term!

http://beforeitsnews.com/politics/2013/01/federal-court-indicts-president-obama-will-not-see-the-end-of-his-second-term-2488220.html

On January 25th, 2013 , Mr. Lyndon Larouche, a well respected journalist and political activist recieved word from his sources within the United States government that President Barack Hussein Obama has been indicted by a Federal Court. Details of the indictment has been ommited by Larouche but he characterized them as probably the greatest indictment he has ever seen placed upon a standing president throughout history. Watch the first 5 minutes of the video to hear this explosive news. WOW!

Obama has had a tough minded approach towards immigration? When did this happen? He is allowing 11 million illegals into this country.Without wanting to enact a mandatory employment verification system.
He wants no border security requirements? This isn't a plan, its a liberal approach to a massive problem.

Obama's getting away with it ... so, reenter Larouche for yet another try. It only takes first strike for all the hounds to pile on, as with 9/11 and suaequent consequences. Why not?
