Obama: ‘You can come out of the shadows’

President Barack Obama promised and delivered to the immigrant community. Last night, all eyes and ears were on the president as he announced his executive order on immigration.

In a speech at the White House last night, President Obama laid out sweeping plans, which he says would keep the best and the brightest in America, while deporting criminals.

President Obama says he will send more resources to the border, make it easier for skilled workers to stay in the US.

His most controversial plan: to expand deferred actions.

This impacts about four million undocumented immigrants who are parents of US citizens or permanents residents, who have lived in the US for at least five years, who pass a criminal background check, and pay taxes.

Not only will they be spared from deportation, in six months they will be allowed to apply for work and have travel permits.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA, which benefits undocumented youth, has also been expanded.

President Obama’s order eliminates the age cap, and individuals who were brought to the US before they turned 16-years-old can apply if they entered before Jan. 1, 2010 – regardless of how old they are today.

In three months, those eligible can apply for work authorization and travel permits.

These work authorizations are valid for three years.

    5 Million illegals given work permit, therefore 5 Million, from the poorest American which mostly black American, will lose their job. Obama destroyed and sold the future of the Black American to the Latino’s. Obama the black terminator.

    One third (1/3) of our Prisoners are illegal alien. It cost $60,000 -$70,000 a year of taxpayers money to maintain them. Deporting those Illegal alien Prisoners should be the 2nd priority. Ist priority is close the border. Built a temporary national guard military tent/camps on the border, while construction on the border is going on.

    Thursday President Obama unveiled a reform plan for 5 million undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States. The millions who be allowed will not receive many of the benefits like unemployment,food stamps, or health care under the affordable care act. They can’t even eventually be come American citizens. Good for the undocumented immigrants best to go back home to your country because if you stay in America you going to get nothing from America but a working visa that’s all.

    The media, the president and progressives portray the “illegal immigrant” as the ultimate victim in this drama. What about the chaotic lawlessness and the fiscal strain citizens must bear? Who put the cohesiveness of illegal immigrant families at risk in the first place? Do we have a choice as to who we allow into the country as citizens or not? Citizenship is privilege, not a cheap commodity to be stolen by anyone. You would think the solid, law-abiding American citizen who is of the persuasion that this is a compassionate “nation of laws” is this evil, racist influence that must be eliminated to allow enlightened progress to prevail. I hope our elected officials resist the lobbying of big business and fight for their voters.
