We are applauding the Obama Administration’s bold move yesterday towards fair, just and compassionate immigration reform! Besides the fact that this will protect so many who have called America home for many years, whose families are here, etc., but it just makes sense. The focus will be put now where it should always have been – on the real criminals! The drug smugglers, human trafficking rings, gangs…all these will be the concentration instead of the taxpayer dollars being wasted on imprisoning the undocumented who are doing no harm and splitting up families.
From Washington Post (read article here):
Yesterday’s decision by the Obama administration to forestall the deportations of undocumented immigrants who don’t pose a threat do public safety is a huge, huge deal. Not just for the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who won’t be ripped away from their homes and families, but because it stands as a good example of the White House responding constructively to criticism from the left — and doing the right thing in political and policy terms as a result.
