If you are a legal immigrant to the U.S. or have parents or grandparents that were legal...


immigrants, how do you feel about President Obama's desire to "go it alone" without Congressional approval on immigration reform for the millions of undocumented people that came here illegally? As grandchild of legal immigrants - who had to wait their turn and respect U.S. laws before becoming legal citizens- I'm curious if anyone else fears Obama may be setting an unwise precedent if he signs an executive order to get what he wants?

    I read where "turnarounds" are included in that count of deportations. That is where persons attempting to enter the US were "turned around" and sent back immediately. Prior to Obama "turnarounds" were not counted as deportation.

    I can't disagree with what you said. Congress needs to grow up and go back to work. We have paid them huge salaries and benefits for years of nothing. It is time we replace all or most of them with some who are willing to do their jobs.

    Highdruid, as a matter of fact, my husband is a Native and he says the current immigration problem is just a repeat of what happened to his people, and a repeat that we shouldn't be allowing to happen.
