President Barack Obama’s changes in the immigration policy will stop deportation of some young illegal immigrants. President Obama said during his speech recently that it is time to “mend our nation’s immigration policy.” He said, the young immigrants play with and attend school with our children. They pledge allegiance to the flag and feel that they are Americans in their hearts.
President said the young immigrants were brought to this country illegally by their parents and as they grow up “face the treat of being deported to a country that they no nothing about.” He plans to stop the deportation of undocumented immigrants and will make the system “more fair, more efficient and more just.” The policy change will stop the deportation of some 800,000 young illegal immigrants and will begin granting work permits immediately for some Dream-Act eligible students. The Dream Act is a bi-partisanship effort.
The Immigration policy change is not a pass to citizenship or amnesty. It is not a permanent fix but will take students out of the shadows of deportation said Democratic National Committee Executive Director Patrick Gaspard. Gaspard discusses with me in depth the changes to the immigration policy.
