No matter what your views are on illegal immigration, most Americans agree that it is a matter of national security. How we handle the porous southern border and the actions we take to stop the flood of people coming across that border is crucial to keeping the American people safe. Contrary to what liberal Democrats want everyone to believe, it isn't the average person crossing that border illegally that we need to worry about. It's the lone person, or a small group of people sneaking across the border with the single intent of killing Americans that we need to be concerned about.
Today, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano announced that effective immediately, illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States by their family, and who meet certain criteria, will be eligible to received deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.
Unfortunately, President Obama once again shows utter disregard for Congress, the American people, and our judicial system. This blatant attempt to change our immigration policy without the input of Congress and the people should be resisted by all of us.
