What promise is being made by "Lady Liberty?" Does Lady Liberty have an age limit? Because the "Dream Act" does. Why is that? Do old illegals not deserve a path to citizenship?
Now I understand why people want to come to the United States. The rest of the world pretty much sucks. I get that.
And I'm fine with immigration. I say bring 'em on. My ancestors came here in the 1840's. We're far from full.
I do think this move by Obama is purely pandering to the hispanic vote. I also think it's lame that a President thinks it's OK to not enforce LAWS. What is the point of having laws? Obama isn't the only President to do this.. but he's clearly embraced the concept.
If Obama wants to allow more illegals to become citizens he needs to propose a change in the laws to congress. That's how it's supposed to work anyhow.
