Thousands of young illegal immigrants lined up Wednesday hoping for the right to work legally in America without being deported. The Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals could expand the rights of more than 1 million young illegal immigrants by giving them work permits, though they would not obtain legal residency here or a path to citizenship.

Apparently 13k people where lined up in to apply for work permits,driver license.
They can also apply to travel internationally for $360, I believe is the right thing to do since they pretty much need to work legally & not worry about how are they going to feed their family or being caught by ICE.
What do you think?

Wow, you all really worship the government...it's sad.
