US government launches new immigration program
Published August 15, 2012
WASHINGTON Young illegal immigrants are scrambling to get passports and other records in order as the Homeland Security Department starts accepting applications to allow them to avoid deportation and get work permits.
Homeland Security announced the details Tuesday of what documents illegal immigrants would need to prove that they are eligible for the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The announcement came a day before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services was set to begin letting people apply for the program.
Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants potentially could benefit from the program, which President Barack Obama announced in June. The program is beginning just months before what promises to be a tight contest for the White House in which the Hispanic vote may play an important role.

Typical congressional response. Why aren’t they bringing Obama up on charges?
My best guess is that such a procedure would take up a lot of time and money and give the media cause to circle the wagons around him, portraying the congress as the bad racist guys and obama as the poor put upon victim. I think the congress knows they’ll be rid of him in November anyways.
This will smoke the illegal felons out so the next prez can round them up for deportation in January. Bye, bye lying felons!
Imagine the pandemonium that would ensue if a prominent Republican (I suggest Steve King or Lou Barletta) were to announce that if Obama is defeated any illegal who applied would be put on the ICE detention list after the program is canceled next year.
