The Obama administration's new policy to grant temporary legal status to millions of young illegal immigrants will end the immediate threat of deportation but may not give them the same privileges as legal residents.

The deferrals are not citizenhip, not makin anyoe legal residents, and does not give anyone the right for drivers license or state services. This whole thing is Obama's lame camapaign to by votes anyway he can.

Just think votes for Obama and it will only cost taxpayers 1 billion dollars. Of course some taxpayers will also pay with their lives but it is worth it if Obama is reelected.

They should have been asked to leave first and then enter the country by legal means (ie obtaining visas) and then apply for legal status if they are skilled. No point granting legal status as if selling it in a flea market.

There are thousands of legally entered people who have applied for legal residency. They have to wait for years to get their green card. Instead of spending resources on these illegal entered pigs, the same could have been spent on reforming the immigration law.
Many countries provide residency by see what the immigrant can offer. This way they get the best talents and in turn benefits the country. Of course the immigrant must have entered the country legally.
Kick these pigs out and make then enter the country legally.

Why SHOULD it "give them the same privileges as legal residents"? They didn't EARN ANY "privileges" at ALL.

They were GRANTED SPECIAL "privileges" - more than just the "same" privileges.

They SHOULD BE HAPPY. They were REWARDED for line jumping and cheating their way to job status.
