Obama declares amnesty for 800,000 illegal immigrants

From Fox News.

Excerpt:

President Obama said Friday the United States will stop deporting hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants and give them work permits, a move praised fellow Democrats but criticized by Republicans on Capitol Hill who said the administration has side-stepped the country’s legislative process.

The executive order will apply to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before they were 16 and are younger than 30. They also must have no major criminal offenses, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have graduated from a U.S. high school or have earned a GED, or served in the military.

Individuals who have been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, or three or more other misdemeanor offenses not occurring on the same date and not arising out of the same act, omission, or scheme of misconduct are not eligible to be considered for deferred action under the new process.

“These are young people who study in our schools and play on our playgrounds,” the president said. “They are Americans in every single way but one – on paper.”

Those now eligible also can apply for a work permit that will be good for two years with no limits on how many times it can be renewed.

The change is expected to impact roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants.

This is nothing but suspending the rule of law to buy votes from a special interest group. Who pays for it? You do – you have to pay for the extra school, health care and policing costs of illegal immigration.

One thought on “Obama declares amnesty for 800,000 illegal immigrants”

  1. My question would be…. If our own citizens in America who were born here are having trouble finding jobs and supporting their families then why does Obama keep giving jobs away? Not only jobs but money when we are broke…. But the thing that troubles me the most is not only is it Obama but these things have been going on for years with a multiply of presidents. This is not something that happened over night. Example free enterprise everything being made in china or Japan… Or how about paying foreigners to come over here and start business. Where they hire there own and send money back home. Why not do that for the people of America. I may be speaking out of ignorance but I don’t think I am. This is our country based in freedom and I want it back and I don’t feel this next election if Obama loses will fix the real problems. It will only slow the process of what will eventually come to a head. We have forgotten god and we worship the government. And thinking all we have to do is vote in the rite people are going to solve it is false. It will not because god is the answer. And whoever is president is because of god. It’s not our vote its god. It’s not government that will save its god. It’s not the right president it’s god. So to save our country from evil that is already here we need to repent turn to god and worship god not the government and worldly things!!
