Isn't this kind of a slap in the face for all the immigrants waiting to become citizens and then of course we the people had no say about this through our representatives.

If these immigrants are granted this deportation relief, what is going to happen with the status of their parent(s)? Is this backdoor method of granting them amnesty by saying they don't want to split up the families?

Why do we even have laws anymore?

This is exactly why we need photo ID to vote. I guarantee you many illegals voted for Obama and now they are going to get their pay. Like single women are getting free birth control. Whatever segment of the population that are getting Obama phones. The list goes on & on. This past election was for free stuff from Santa Claus. Where do I sign up for my free stuff?

Obama bought the Hispanic vote. He owns this.

Send them all back without the ability to ever return to the U.S.A. Can't these people work/change/revolt in their own country? Oh goodness, that is what the law says. I guess I am sorry for all those immigrants who came here legally from Poland (including my great-great-great grandfather). How can I get some "free things"?

The intellectual dishonesty in this story is predictable. I invite any American who wishes to cross into Mexico or Canada without papers to see what happens.

Think what Mexico would be like if 2-3 million young, educated, motivated people returned. What do you think the country would look like in 5 years?

"I invite any American who wishes to cross into Mexico or Canada without papers to see what happens." - The US won't let you back in. Go figure. One key falsehood which sums up the illigitimate agenda here, these are not immigrants, immigrants adhere to the laws and customes of the nation they wish to immigrate to. These are Illegal Aliens. We need to star criminal proceeeding against those who aid and abet them and the sooner the better.

They 3Rd largest source of revenue for Mexico are they reparations illegals send there. Oil,tourism,reparations. Illegals should all be deported, voluntarily or otherwise. No other country in the world does not require minimum criteria for immigrants. Things such as: education, skills, no criminal record etc. are the minimum that should be required. The illegals are costing taxpayers much more than they contribute. Free health care,education, food stamps etc..... Get over your guilt Americans. Most of us wouldn't even be welcomed by our European supposed "homelands". .. The illegals are a semi-permanent, expensive underclass that have no intention of assimilating. Press one for English? No thanks!
