Obama gave in to the demands of illegal alien activists and postpone deportation of illegal aliens from the United States. Obama request 300,000 cases to be reviewed for any criminal record, which are grounds for immediate deportation. Obama and his Administration forgets that these illegal aliens came here to America illegally. That is the grounds for deportation. This is the typical Democrat mentality. They want to increase the Democrat base with illegal aliens.
(Breitbart) The Obama administration said Thursday it would postpone the deportation of illegal immigrants without criminal records and allow them to apply for work permits as it reviews over 300,000 cases.
The case review would only affect those undocumented immigrants already in line for deportation proceedings, and not the vast majority of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.
The move comes amid criticism from rights activists of President Barack Obama's administration for deporting a record number of illegal immigrants and failing to get Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
In fiscal year 2010, which ended September 30, the United States deported a record 392,000 illegal immigrants. More than half of those individuals had prior convictions.
Immigrant rights activists protested in several cities across the country this week against Obama's policies on deportation, warning they could cost him votes from the Hispanic community when he runs for reelection in 2012.
