Pelosi Statement on Obama Administration Directive on DREAM-Eligible Youth June 15, 2012
Washington, D.C. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after the Obama Administration announced a Department of Homeland Security directive protecting one million DREAM-eligible youth from deportation:
We salute President Obama and Secretary Napolitano for their extraordinary action today to honor the American values of equality and opportunity. Todays announcement offers a measure of relief for young people raised and educated here, but left in legal limbo through no fault of their own. This action will strengthen our economy and reflects the best values of our nation.
In the American tradition, these undocumented young people who have pursued education and military service are eager to participate in our nations future; they seek to help build something better for the next generation. Like previous generations of immigrants who have come to our shores, these young people simply strive to take part in the American dream.
It was with great pride that the Democratic-led House passed the DREAM Act with a bipartisan vote in 2010, and it was great disappointment that we watched Republicans in the Senate obstruct the legislation from becoming law. Democrats will continue to push to pass the DREAM Act and to enact bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform that secures our borders, upholds the rule of law, protects our workers, unites families, and provides a pathway to legalization."
We have become a nation of Presidential Regulations, not a country of laws controlled by Congress. If Congress doesn’t knock this thing down, they all need to go.
Who's "we" biatch?! 'RAT policitians worried about their freeloader jobs in the District of Corruption?! WE THE PEOPLE aren't saluting ****!
what about legal Americans who want a job
I don’t think they even thought about that when they were at the table giggling and saying how great this will be
Yes. let's honor the SOB for ignoring the laws.
I hate that bitch! Who are the brain dead idiots who keep returning that POS to office?
What if this was Bush and he bypassed the Congress.
Congress usurped, completely.
I hear you, she is a soulless witch whose plasticine smile is a facade constructed to hide the darkness that lies within!
The big mainstream media will hide this from the American people as they have hidden thousands of other crimes this Marxist Obama has done.
Where are those that say that Romney is worse? I thought Romney was against Amnesty. Tom Tancredo endorsed Romney. I hate democrat Obama. I hate democrat Pelosi. And I hate the media even more.
Destroy the borders, sovereignty, economy, jobs, while flooding the country with millions of illegals, Muslims, and foreigners of every description.
Divide the united....
He's following Bush's lead, who also wanted to shove amnesty down the throats of American tax payers, regardless if millions of Americans are unemployed, under employed, hours cuts etc, all while the biggov bosses demand Americans use less fuel, water, electricity, energy.
What Americans want or demand, is meaningless as far as the government ruling class is concerned.
Divide the united by flooding the country with tens of millions of illegals, foreigners, Muslims, etc. Open borders, global, one world order....
In fact it was Bush, who allowed in more Muslims after 911, than the previous two decades. See the UK.
Divide the united...Total control.
I hope a portion of the outrage expressed at FR today is directed where it needs to go, at our Congressmen and Senators.
Every illegal act of Hussein establishes a precedent for future dictator wannabees. Yes, this man must be politically smacked down . . .
Let your Congressional delegation know, especially if you are represented by rats.
The county I live in has a reported unemployment rate of 15.6 percent which the authorities will admit to.
I think it is truly higher.
I think we are the highest in the nation.
We don’t need illegals getting jobs that locals have worked for 3 years to bring to our area.
She & her husband have been caught employing illegals in their various restaurants in the Bay area.
This kind of law will get them off the hook.
