I am usually very conservative but in this case i support these young people. So you are brought to the us by your parents when you are 6 or so. You have no choice, you dont even know what is going on. The us is the only life you have known. When you are 18 you are going to ask to be deported to a place you know little about? Really just put yourself in their place, imagine your child in that situation. I agree Congress should do something and chnage the law. In the meantime lets concentrate on getting the illegal aliens out that are also criminals and not waste time on these young people.

Then we better stop all immigration and foreign students, they are apparently being forced to move to a country they didn't grow up in and know nothing about. And stop lying about being conservative.

1) It's illegal: Since there are currently no work permits for illegal aliens, handing them out would require a change in the existing law. If this were a dictatorship like North Korea or Cuba, Dear Leader Barack Obama could simply issue a decree and change the law. Here in America we're a republic which means that he unquestionably, uncontroversially cannot issue work permits for illegal aliens without a bill passing through Congress. His attempt to do so may seem like a small matter to some people, but it sets an extremely dangerous precedent that undermines democracy in our country.
