WHITE HOUSE STOPS STUDENT DEPORTATIONS

Rate this Entry

The Times reports that the White House has quietly stopped deporting students that appear eligible for the DREAM Act should that bill pass. That's in contrast to the increase in deportations we've seen overall, particularly of criminals. [Hat tip to Adi for posting in the comments].

    They should go to back of the line.No special path for citizenship to these folks either.

    It is unfair to the children of legal immigrants who are waiting in line for decades.

    Stopping student deportation is good thing , Looks like Obama has some "cojones" , if the report is correct.

    A, to the back of which exactly line should someone who lived in the US for 20 years go?

    Some filipnos are waiting since 1990 , Some mexicans are waiting since 1994 . They should at least go to back of that line or clear all the backlog before anyone is granted green card in a special line.

    I totally agree with "A". Having an education in the US should not be an automatic ticket to US citizenship its unfair to the thousands of backlogged EB & FB category people who have been waiting in line for years either in the US or in their home country. And passing the DREAM Act is going to increase the flow of illegals as the parents can ensure a secure future for their kids (provided they study) once they get in & stay out of the hands of ICE or any other law enforcement.

    Dream "kids" dont even have to complete the college, just finish first two years. They will be given fast access to green card and citizenship. There will not be any restriction on them to sponser their family members for immigration benifits.

    So, you would rather they wait for 25 more years? Nice people, you are. Fortunately, nobody's taking your opinion as direction.

    A, I have another suggestion. How about opening a new category with... 1,000 quota, but anyone can apply. We'll fill it up for the next 200 years, and then tell the DREAM Act beneficiaries that they will have to wait until that line is done. That would be a solution that would satisfy every anti immigrant, including you.

    "And passing the DREAM Act is going to increase the flow of illegals as the parents can ensure a secure future for their kids (provided they study) once they get in & stay out of the hands of ICE or any other law enforcement. "

    Did you read the proposed bill? Does not look like it. The only wave it will create is a wave 3-4 years ago. Unless illegals invented a time machine, I don't see it happenning.

    If Congress fails to act this year, another entire class of outstanding, law-abiding high school students will graduate without being able to plan for the future, and some will be removed from their homes to countries they barely know. This tragedy will cause America to lose a vital asset: an educated class of promising immigrant students who have demonstrated a commitment to hard work and a strong desire to be contributing members of our society.

    What is so special about them that they need special treatment. They have to wait along with others. I am just asking them not to jump the line.

    You can call me anti immigrant or the R word... , but that does not make me one.

    I am just asking everyone to be treated same.

    Let me tell you another thing about this bill , Country quotas will not apply to these benificiries as well . Because it benifits people from certain country ...I am not naming it , you all can figure out easily.

    No, you do NOT want everyone treated the same! You only care about yourself, your bigotry, and your ignorance. You found people to hate, and that's the only thing that warms up your heart. There is ABSOLUTELY NO RELATIONSHIP between DREAM Act and any other immigration lines!!! You just would not fess up to that.

    "What is so special about them that they need special treatment. They have to wait along with others. I am just asking them not to jump the line. "

    What makes a spouse of a US citizen to have a special treatment? What if someone who entered legally, but overstayed marries a US citizen? Why are you not compaining about them "jumping the line"? Go ahead, complain about THAT!

    "Let me tell you another thing about this bill , Country quotas will not apply to these benificiries as well . Because it benifits people from certain country ...I am not naming it , you all can figure out easily. "

    There you go, hate on Mexicans. You should start a new movement - brown against brown.

    Dream act does not deal with spouses of citizens , it deals with illegals/undocumented that entered as "kids".

    You can call me bigot , ignorant or something else.

    "Go ahead, complain about THAT!"

    If it gets to that, we know how to oppose ... Just say no to .. and so far the people who oppose are winning. You can alienate as many people as you want by calling them bigots and ignorant.

    Here is your problem - right there. You DO NOT WANT everyone to be treated equally. You want everyone BUT YOU to be treated CRAPPY. That's why you are not going to sleep until others are treated the most aweful, most crappiest standard out there, remember, you picked it out yoursef, I only asked. That's your whole goal of existence, get just a sliver above someone less fortunate so you can hate on them. What a wonderful human being...

    And you are "we folks"? If you have not noticed, I was speaking my own personal mind.

    Entitlement to what? I would love to hear your conspiracy theories.
