Chavez claims to be a conservative??? Real conservatives do not take sides with a Marxist president to subvert the law. Chavez is a Hispanic. She owes all her loyalty to Hispanics, not conservative values and ethics, or the law. Also, only a genuine liberal would dare to lecture the GOP on immigration policy rather than the leftist corrupt politicians in south and central america who are responsible for the socialist poverty these illegals flee from Lastly, this is exactly why I will never trust Marco Rubio, either.

150 years ago you would have been saying the same things about Irish catholics.

That makes no sense. I'm half Swede and could care less about socialist Sweden. My loyalties are AMERICAN.

Are you Chavez? Why does she side with a lawbreaking Marxist potentate? You don't side with illegal Swedes, do you? In fact, she has been defending her skin color, which is almost always democrat in voting, for ten years now. It's about all Linda Chavez has ever done, harpo. She is a race baiter. Her job is race. She only cares about race, harpo. Race, yes. The law, no. Conservatism is near last on her list of things to do, harpo. I've been reading her for years now. Have you also?

My thought on the issue is if you are illegal send them back let them improve their own country. Chavez is from across the border and must like to den up with them.

Re: McMichael,

"Chavez claims to be a conservative?"

Yes, she's more of a Conservative than you. Immigration restriction is an entirely PROGRESSIVE idea, mr. progressive.

f torres, eh? Obviously your loyalty is to your skin color too, not the law. Typical racist-thinking, racist-obsessed liberal, aren't you? Posing as a conservative, eh? Typical leftist who has no recognition of the real discussion which is about ILLEGAL immigration. Oh, you just happened to overlook the real subject of the article. Easy mistake for a leftist type, eh torres? Go, vote for Obama, again, dude.

Many conservatives reject President Obama's recent policy to defer action against illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children. But as a conservative who supports the president's decision, I think it's important to seriously engage the arguments both for and against the policy.

First, let me explain what the Obama program does and does not do. It explicitly does not grant legal status to any group, even those who came illegally as infants or children. Those who are eligible for deferred action are given no path to permanent residency or to citizenship. They are not eligible for...
