Deporting Young Illegal Residents: Right or Wrong?

President Obama announced ceasing deportations of juvenile undocumented immigrants. Do you agree?

President Barack Obama's announcement Friday to halt deportations of young undocumented immigrants was, to no surprise, controversial, just as the subject of illegal residency and migration issues always are.

We received in our e-mail this first reaction today:

"The Los Angeles County Democratic Party applauds President Obama for his historic decision to cease deportations of young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children and providing a method for them to receive a permit to work.

"Finally, these young people can stop living in the shadows and pursue the American Dream that they grew up aspiring to achieve.  President Obama and the many young DREAMers have demonstrated exceptional courage in the fight to make America stronger by ensuring equality and justice for all."

We will post a Republican Party reaction should we receive one.

But what are your thoughts? Tell us in comments.

Albert, with respect, the courts routinely contradict themselves and one another and higher courts often reverse the decisions of lower courts. Thus to rely upon the courts overmuch for definitive rulings on questions of legality seems less than circumspect. Which poll do your stated percentages come from, if I might ask?

Unless you are Native American, aren't we all illegal immigrants?

This is another interesting story breaking today, involving a UCLA study on how hot it will get in Southern California. What do you think? http://patch.com/A-v0dv

Did you mean to append your comment and link to THIS article, Nancy? : ) Since you asked, though, I think the earth warms and cools according to cycles far beyond puny and infant man's ability to control or effect in any way. For the Federal Department of Energy to have funded a study on this topic to the tune of half a million taxpayer dollars should be considered a crime and just one more reason we should de-fund and disband the entire Department.
