    Obama makes election-year change in deportation policy

    I think he wants to lose the election...this isnt going to help him in my mind.


    The Obama administration announced Friday it will stop deporting illegal immigrants who come to the country at a young age.

    The politically charged decision comes as Obama faces a tough reelection fight against Republican Mitt Romney, with Hispanic voters in swing states seen as a key bloc.





    The change in policy could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally, according to a senior administration official speaking to reporters Friday.

    That's also 800,000 more (illegal) votes for Obama, if he can prevent states like Florida and Arizona from cleaning their voter lists.

    I'd like to see the evidence that there's widespread illegals voting, and that they're voting for Democrats. I'd actually like to know what is backing up these allegations that get made.

    He walked away instead of answering questions. What a coward.

    These are YOUNG illegals...and It wont benefit him in votes this election...I do however believe it was a mistake and it will not help him in the end.

    Catering to special interest groups does not help him with the Meat and potato voters...Personally, Im voting for Obama, but I now have to believe he will not win re election.

    Isn't that exactly what Florida is trying to find out? How many "illegals voting" are doing so illegally?

    Key word, "widespread" interesting wording. I guess if robbery is not widespread, no need to do anything about it. Voting is the spine of this country and there should be no illegal or any other fraudulent vote. None, zip zero, nada.
