August 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

WE KEEP GETTING THESE MEMOS FROM THE GOVERNMENT ON STOPPING DEPORTATIONS. AFTER ABOUT A MILLION REMOVALS SINCE THE NEW PRESIDENT TOOK OVER, WE FINALLY HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS!!

“The Obama administration said it will review the cases of 300,000 illegal immigrants currently in deportation proceedings to identify “low-priority” offenders — including the elderly, crime victims and people who have lived in the US since childhood — with an eye toward allowing them to stay. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the review as the Obama administration has sought to counter criticism that it has been too harsh in its deportation policies. By launching the case-by-case review, officials said they are refocusing deportation efforts on convicted felons and other “public safety threats.” The administration’s action was cheered bysome illegal immigrants, notably college students who have been pushing Congress to pass the Dream Act, which would allow them to stay in the country.”  (LA Times)
