Shielding Immigrants From Deportation

Senior officials are considering a policy change for immigrants who don't have serious criminal records. It would shield them from deportation. The possible change follows a review ordered by President Obama. The former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement supports the move, but Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has yet to weigh in on the possible change. With sweeping immigration reform stalled in the House of Representatives, President Obama is under pressure to curb deportations. Administration officials say they will seek near-term goals because comprehensive reform is only possible with congressional action.

Why does everything need "Reform"? There's nothing wrong with our immigration laws. Learn our form of government, our Constitution, our laws, pledge allegiance, and pass a test. How is that wrong?

"Reform" sure helped healthcare, didn't it?

Liberals fail to understand supply side economics. i.e. The more workers there are, the less we all get paid in the long run...But hey, as long as Libs feel all warm and fuzzy inside, that's all that matters. Ignorant Liberals...smdh

I'm a conserative but I belive if republicans really want win back the senate and the white house the illegal immigrant problem must be addressed realisticaly.Yes they broke the law coming here to work and make a better for themselves and their family,but our politicans let them do it.So it seems to me there plenty of blame to go around on both sides.If a family has been in the US for years worked, caused no trouble,speaks english and has children in school some type of accommodation can be made for them. They most likely havent paid income taxes since they work for the most part under the table but some type of fine could be imposed,they could then be issued a green card and have a social security number.I don't think anyone that entered the US illegally should ever be granted citizenship or allowed to vote,but if we are a caring and humane society we shouldn't just say get the hell out and thats it. If conservatives really want to take back control of our government then we better be thinking long and hard of how we approach the coming elections.

Stu, really.. these people came here illegally, they broke the law, period. They have eaten up resources and taken advantage of our hospitals driving up medical cost. They don't want to assimilate into our society as citizens and the majority will never vote for a conservative. I guess that the drug abuser who has not been busted for 10 years should be left off as well... oh yea, we did just pass that law. Stu, I suggest you cross the boarder and try to take citizenship in Mexico and let us know how that goes... Conservative.. sorry, I don't believe it
