Get them all signed up.

When Romney is sworn in and rescinds Obama's order, he'll have a ready made list of who to round up and ship out.

So America how's it feel to get the shaft by your own president? How's it feel to have criminals put in front of you for jobs? Your president has betrayed you. He has told you, you simply don't matter and you p*ss and moan about it but what action have you taken to stop him? You should be in the halls of your congress demanding an end to the invasion of your country and giving those invaders preference over you.

Canuck for an American without obama.

Everyone that signs up in time and qualifies will be safe even in the event the order is rescinded. The best Romney can do is put a stop to it and that is probably not the first thing on his agenda.

Not true. Romney supports this measure as he has so many Mormon Mexican family members that will benefit from this program.

It is a policy that violates constitutionally enacted immigration law.

I wouldn't put too much stock in it.

Not true. Under Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution which states that the President "shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment." The Supreme Court of the United States has interpreted this language to include the power to grant pardons, conditional pardons, commutations of sentence, conditional commutations of sentence, remissions of fines and forfeitures, respites and amnesties.

It's nothing more than a payment that allows a two year visa stay with an expiration date.

Good only for two years and has to be renewed. It's all bullchit, I've been working over 15 years without a permit and never had a problem. It's just another way for the US to make more money from the poor undocumented worker.

I'm not falling for it.

They aren't pardons.

They are conditional stays of deportations and can easily be rescinded.

The obamanation's amnesty is good for only two years and will need to be renewed? This is just a ruse so as not to rile up the dumbed down American electorate. If reelected you can bet your bippy that the obamanation will not only renew this amnesty but will greatly expand on it.

What sense, or good comes from giving some quasi-legal status, when the Communist Democrat policy is to not check the status of any illegal?

It is good to hear from our cousins from Canada. I agree with you that everyone is being shafted, mostly people trying to come in legally and being passed over. The POTUS is a traitor, and is ruining this once proud country.----By the way, GOD bless our fine neighbors to the north(I have many cousins up there).

200 illegal alien workers some who have been there over 20 years find themselves out of a job. Illegal aliens never know when it's going to happen.

"It’s very sad,” said spokeswoman Elisabeth Jewel from the firm Aroner, Jewel & Ellis Partners.“The employees who are being terminated now have the most seniority. Many have been there 20 to 30 years. They have kids in the public school. They pay taxes. They are fully invested in American life. It’s been a really wrenching situation – obviously for the workers – but also for the company.”

That i believe. He will try and include their parents. But i see Obama not getting much done for the next 4 years and people will be sick of it whether it's his fault or not.

I see 2016 as a big year for republicans who will be serious about winning the WH. But what's more important is this Nov, who wins the house and senate? I'am not voting for Obama again and may vote for republicans!

Seek legal status? This policy does not change status if it did they would be receiving greencards.

"Only Congress can change the terms for granting immigration status or citizenship, whether for all immigrants or a subset of people."

Renewed after two years.........no way. We want to be given amnesty and become part of the American Dream.

I am not falling for this financial winfall for the U. S.
