God forbid that Obama actually believes that if they are going to be here they might as well be able to work legally. God forbid if Obama actually wants to help people who come from violent nations locked into battles with drug cartels and wildly corrupt politicians.

I believe it is important to treat others as we would like to be treated.

Obama pandering to the Hispanic vote, nothing more about it. Send the illegals back! What is so hard about this? Other countries have very strict laws and then our country is sold out!! It is really pissing me off

Maybe its because Illegal workers get paid less get less working rights etc Illegal workers have made many people rich in the states and here in Europe.
President Obama told Hispanics today he is with them on overhauling the nation's immigration laws -- but he won't use executive orders to alter the law on things such as deportations.
"Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own," Obama told members of a National Council of La Raza conference who shouted back, "Yes, you can! Yes, you can!"
"That's not how our democracy functions," Obama responded. "That's not how our Constitution is written."
"Now, I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books, but that doesn't mean I don't know very well the real pain and heartbreak that deportations cause," Obama said. "I share your concerns, and I understand them. And I promise you, we are responding to your concerns and working every day to make sure we are enforcing flawed laws in the most humane and best possible way."
Pablo Alvarado, director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, said Obama's administration has deported more than 1 million people, calling it "an unprecedented civil rights crisis for our community."
"It is not enough for him to blame Congress or to bemoan the difficulty of his job," Alvarado said. "He can -- and must -- take action to protect members of our community who are under siege."

While I understand that these people need to work to make their lives better, it's a slap in the face of everyday Americans for the Obama administration to have done this. It's bad enough that a lot of Americans cannot find a job and now they have even more competition.
Does it bother anyone else that our government seems to be saying that our borders are completely open now?

Americans can find jobs it's just that many of them refuse to work for the wages being offered. And even more refuse the job because they think it is beneath them.
