He stole a truck, ran from police in that truck through at least four cities and tried hitting some of those officers with a truck. Honestly young who cares what events took place to lead to this situation. I don't want to know this guys entire troubled past, just the facts of the case. If what was stated is true I'm glad he was put down prior to him killing a innocent person or officer. 11 months ago
Even if it was to be minimum wage, who cares? You make it sound as if it was a bad thing. The people who will be applying for these jobs are already struggling. I'm glad to see at least a few people will be able to support themselves again to some degree and hopefully be removed from the dependancy of unemployment and food stamps. 11 months ago
It's people like you that never cease to amaze me. You speak of racism and bigots yet when describing employment for illegals you say; "Who's gonna cut your grass, and clean your house?"
Are there racist people in America who dislike the president only because he is black, more than likely yes. But don't categorize everyone within this posting just because of their dislike of him. He is a poor president and he himself has displayed that. Should I pull the racist card whenever I hear a black person speak negatively about George W Bush?

Firstly, Leon please stop tying in all caps. I believe that is against at least 4 internet rules.
This is nothing more than Obama's making a political move. Yes other presidents have done other things and no he won't be the last. But there is a reason for check and balance of power with the three branches. This will be an on going issue that will be debated and fought. I am sure Congress was less than happy when they heard this considering they have been denying the "Dream Act" for some time now.
I also love the fact people are using numbers from the 2010 Census of the Hispanic population. It seems to be the case for people and media alike. Do we have no other illegal immigrants? I suppose Asian immigrants were never sneaking over here on boats. Or one of the MANY other nationalities.
Don't get me wrong, I am completely against this. We are a government and country of laws. It is wrong for one man or a handful to selectively enforce what they will. We became this great country because of immigrants. But we selectively choose which seemed to turn out pretty well.
When you hand out free stuff you will never get anything good in return. The law of equivalent exchange. And to set the record straight, I come from a family whose grandfather migrated here illegally. He married into citizenship and until recently I believed he did it properly like my grandmother. I was disappointed when I found out he was illegal.
A few things that haven't been looked at but I am sure will be are; no taxation without representation. How can we tax people who qualify but still not allow them to vote? What will become of adults who don't qualify and are deported while their young children qualify? Some people call this a band-aid solution to the immigration problem. I firmly believe this is going to be a bigger can of worms than we already had. Now instead of plusible denial our government will be directly responsible for what happens next.
