You might want to check your facts also. Obama has not declared a moratorium on deportation for all illegal aliens, just a small group of people who fall under strict guidelines and for a two year period.
Obama is still in fact still deporting illegal aliens.
So should I assume the manhater will be enforcing these strict guidelines? Does anyone really believe that this boondaggle will end after two years. The rich boys will fight to keep their slaves and the rich boys always win in politics and the law.

DL's are a states right issue but the feds are free to deny public funding on projects that a state might need lets say in transportation or road repair if the state does not agree to issue DL's. You all better be lucky that Obama is not pushing this type of policy as it's very plausible.
Isnt this how they got all the states to go along with the legal drinking age?

New poll data in HuffPost Denver today...

Two Professors, Ken Bickers & Michael Berry, at the U. of Colorado, who have used the same Presidental/electoral vote predictor model since 1980, and has been correct in each and every election since 1980, is predicting that come Nov. Romney will recieve 320 electoral votes to Obama's 218.

As per Newsweek... "Hit The Road Barack". We need a new President.

I'm just curious why states want to reward individuals who broke the law. Even the ones who have been in the state for multiple years, they still broke the law by coming to the U.S. illegally. Convicted felons lose the ability to obtain federal aid for schooling, own a weapon, vote, ect...so why does the government want to give financial aid, the right to vote, right to own a weapon, ect. to illegal aliens? Illegal aliens are in the U.S. because they broke the law. Do not reward law breakers with benefits or the same rights that law abiding citizens and immigrants have earned by being born from American citizens and/or became legal citizens through the proper legal channels.

Obama is still in fact still deporting illegal aliens.
"In 1996, Congress inserted several interlocking provisions into the law that require deportation when Executive Branch officials become aware of illegal aliens.

Congress enacted these provisions explicitly to force the executive branch to place into removal proceedings virtually every illegal alien encountered by federal immigration agents. The exceptions allowed by the 1996 act are very narrow, to be applied only in extraordinary circumstances (such as aliens seeking political asylum).

In other words, the “prosecutorial discretion” that Obama claims he is ordering ICE agents to exercise no longer exists, because Congress eliminated it in 1996.

Congress acted out of frustration that the Clinton administration was using its discretion to let several thousand illegal aliens walk free. Today, Obama is claiming to use the same now nonexistent discretion to let 1.4 million illegals walk free."

that's actually not true.
the majority of immigrants back then were from Europe and Asia, only about 25% were hispanic.
that percentage has changed since then though, and now about 68% are hispanic.
the actual number hasn't really changed, even accounting for illegals.


The illegal Hispanic/Latino percentage is 84% with 62% coming from Mexico.

You're right, but I'm sure Reagan wasn't expecting that in the future ALL ILLEGALS BE GIVEN AMNESTY!! he felt it appropriate then BUT CAN'T BE DONE ON A PERMANENT BASIS, one doesn't need to be a genius to realize this.

C'mon, be honest,
It was the democrats, especially Teddy "the drunk driver/murderer" Kennedy that promised Reagan it would be a "one time" amnesty and that they, Kennedy and the democrats who controlled the House and Senate, would appropiate the money needed to completely "SEAL" the southern border to stop any further illegals from entering the U.S.

Reagan took them at their word and signed the amnesty. Then Kennedy and the democrats reniged on their promise to appropiate the money to seal the border.

Reagan was made a fool of by Kennedy and the democrats, no doubt about that, however, the lieing bastard democrats are far more guilty than the Republicans relating to what actually went down proceeding the 1986 amnesty.

You Obama ass kissers always ignore the facts and then you try to blame others for things that your own party created.
