    Maybe. Seems like the beginning of it.

    DHS To Grant Illegal Aliens “Unlawful Presence Waivers”

    In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.”

    The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen.

    Currently such aliens must return to their native country and request a waiver of inadmissibility in an existing overseas immigrant visa process. In other words, they must enter the U.S. legally as thousands of foreigners do on a yearly basis. Besides the obvious security issues, changing this would be like rewarding bad behavior in a child. It doesn’t make sense.....

    Why doesn't Obama just have a speech and say "I am the law in this country", he certainly thinks he is.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The "unitary executive"=dictator.

    And yes, he does think he is. The executive branch has almost completed its coup against the legislative branch, which was supposed to be paramount.

    I have a question for some of y'all. The illegal immigrant situation is such that there is no easy answer. Is there any situation in which you would grant amnesty/permit current illegals the right to remain in the US and pursue citizenship ? If so what/how.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    How you going to enforce that. The man power and hours involved and the result would be reminiscent of FDR and the Japanese & Italians in the 40's. you think the country would stand for that ?

    Deport them all. It's the only fair thing to do. We should not give preference to by virtue of the fact that they chose to have children here; such would be the most outward expression of their arrogance and disregard for our country and its laws that they clearly had no intention of ever leaving. We should not reward anyone for violating our border and our laws.

    Lot of people feel that way but that's not going to happen.

    The boarders need to be sealed,some type of conditional dispensation has to be arrived at concerning current illegals. what that conditional dispensation is debatable. 2005 estimates but the number of illegals in the USA at 18 - 20 million that's a lot of people to round up, detain & deport.
