[QUOTE=doggin94it;4492675]Prosecutorial discretion. I don't think, however, Obama can set policy for future administrations; he can say "we won't deport", or "we'll issue work permits", but he can't forever waive the past violations or prevent future ones.
That said, I am nowhere near as far to the right as you are on this one, 'Fish; [B]IMO, kids who were brought here as children and who are productive members of society[/B] ought to be allowed to stay as permanent resident aliens; no path to citizenship, no right to grant anyone else status by relationship (i.e. any other blood relatives could be deported, they can't grant permanent residence status to anyone through marriage, and their children would not get automatic citizenship, but would have to apply for it), but if they are here and contributing, and did not themselves knowingly commit any illegal act to get here, they can stay.[/QUOTE]
That's the problem, The Democrats always bring out the shining example " Juan" has work two jobs while maintaining a 4.0 and has dreams of medical school so he can find a cure for his cancer ridden mother." Or "Maria", The 20 year old girl with the large inquisitive eyes, whom, as a 4 year old was brought to this county and speaks not a word of Spanish (witch is curious as her parents speak not a word of English)Is now in U.T law school on grants and in state tuition, she want to be an International Attorney, so she can help restore the native lands of her people to it's rightful owners.
They don't show you, "Jose" a 18 year old gang banger with no arrests other than some juvie sht. But, is still a "student".
Or "Consuela" Who is a 26 year old with 3 kids on WIC, foods tamps, AFDC, and lives in public housing, but is working on her GED!!!
Guess witch one there are more of? by about 85%
