Washington DC, June 16, 2012. President Barack Hussein Obama, D-Kenya, announced his plan this week to suspend the deportation of illegal aliens who were brought here as children.
In doing this, President Obama completely ignored Congress and is effectively legislating by executive order.
The President will allow young illegal immigrants to remain in the country to work and study without fear of deportation.
Obama said it was “the right thing to do” for people who were brought to the country by no choice of their own but have grown up as our friends and neighbors.
“They study in our schools, play in our neighborhoods,” the president said. “They pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their hearts and minds and in every single way but one: on paper.”

Under the new policy, the feds will stop deporting illegal immigrants who are under 30, came to the United States as children, and are otherwise law abiding.
It also lets these illegals apply for a work permit that’s good for two years, with no limits on how many times it can be renewed.
As many as 800,000 undocumented residents in the United States could qualify for this new legal status. In New York City alone, there’s an estimated total of 500,000 illegal immigrants.
“This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It is not a permanent fix,” Obama said, answering critics who call him soft on illegal immigration.
The surprise election-year move will help Obama shore up support among crucial Latino voters, who have been critical of the high number of deportations under his administration. This political move closely follows his "evolving opinion" on gay marriage. He recently announced his support for gay marriage rights after years of opposing it in order to shore up his support among gay voters.

However, President Obama does have a plan for deportations that will help the economy. The President will announce next month that the Immigration Department will start deporting senior citizens instead of illegals in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs.
Why deport senior citizens? A spokesman for the White House told us "Older people are a drain on our healthcare system they don't pay very much in taxes, plus they are easier to catch and will not remember how to get back home."
One important note: this executive order will have no effect on President Obama's Uncle Omar, who is also an illegal alien. Technically, Omar is in violation of immigration law,. but will be allowed to stay here until we have a real president again.
