Options Abound for Executive Action on Immigration

Even if comprehensive immigration legislation is a low priority in the 111th Congress, President-elect Barack Obama will have plenty of tools at his disposal for altering the border security and interior enforcement landscape.
The new administration can use executive orders, departmental reviews, regulations and personnel appointments to affect policy without Congress having to weigh in.
And having apparently settled on a Homeland Security secretary in Gov. Janet Napolitano , D-Ariz., viewed as possessing border security credentials, such a strategy makes sense, with the president otherwise engaged in confronting economic troubles at home and war and terrorism abroad.
Likely to be high on the immigration to-do list: re-examining the stepped-up worksite enforcement conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in recent months.
Human rights and immigrant advocates have blasted the raids, which are effective at netting large groups of illegal workers but can create public relations problems.
“I think that the Obama administration is definitely going to dial back on workplace raids, but I don’t see them putting it that way,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates reduced immigration levels.“They’re going to say ‘we’re re-assessing workplace raids.’”

It was just a story. Try to be more objective and less offensive.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

When illegal invaders are killed does anybody care. If the government does not know they are here when they go missing there is no crime unless a body turns up. Bury them deep.

I have nothing good to say about the illegals. If they are illegal ship them out. They do not follow the laws cause they can not speak, read or write English and they do not want to learn anyway. Even the ones that are here legally the majority of them do not speak, read or write English and do not want to learn. They think it is up to us to learn their language. "WRONG" that will be the day. As I have said many times if INS had been doing their job in the first place we would not have this problem today.

Happy Thanksgiving to all Americans and the legal of other nationalities.

Their you go again crying 'bout americans not having jobs... and illegals breaking the law. Look you lazy ass law abiding unemployed americans, GET your ASSES off that couch and go look for work, oh it out there...Commercial Construction, Residential Construction, Road Construction, Cooks, Waiters, House Keeping, Farm Labor, Ranch Labor, Trash Collectors, Painters, Window Washers, Car Washers, Yard Worker, and the list goes on and on. If you really want a job you can get one, the problem is not us illegals, it is you welfare, medicaid, foodstamp, tanf, unemployment benifit, dependant americans killing your economy. My boss (white man) told us all (illegals) that if for every legal citizen came and applied for work he would have to let one of us go. That was 4 years ago, up to this day not a single american has come to apply for our jobs. As a matter of fact he even ran an ad in the paper and posted it with the local employment office only one responded, and he wanted to be a supervisor or something like that.

So stop your crying and pick up the wanted ads as we did... and get a job. Oh by the way starting pay is 12.50 an hour, as a construction worker.

So show some THANKS to an illegal on THANKSGIVING, and ask GOD to give you STRENGTH to get up off that couch or bed, and simply look for work.

Nice story from ATX, and if indeed, he is from Buda, TX, I know for a fact that a whole lot of people would have responded. Buda is not to far from Austin and jobs that pay 12.50 and hour are very rare down there.

Thankyou illegal scum. Thankyou for giving us Mexicans who play by the rules a bad name. I hope your lives remain as miserable as they were in southern Mexico. Dishonest people who shamelessly commit crimes and freeload off of hard working citizens deserve nothing but disrespect and chains.
jail then deport
