Skip to comments.Obama immigration amnesty to include middle school dropouts
Posted on 08/15/2012 6:37:33 PM PDT by george76
Administration officials confirmed on Tuesday that they have expanded the White House immigration policy for younger illegals to include low-skill immigrants who have not completed middle school or high school.
The shift adds roughly 350,000 low-skill immigrants to the Department of Homeland Security policy, which was initially portrayed as including only 800,000 people under the age of 31 when it was announced by President Barack Obama in a Rose Garden statement on June 15.
The inclusion of middle school dropouts clashes with Obamas portrayal of the illegal immigrants as skilled workers, scientists and entrepreneurs.
The foreign workers will enter the legal job market alongside the 23 million American citizens who are unemployed or underemployed. Current unemployment rates are especially high among younger Latinos and African-Americans. For example, less than half of young African-American men lack full-time jobs.
Controversy over the presidents executive DREAM Act isnt necessarily a negative for the Obama campaign, because Hispanic voters may feel pressured to rally around other Hispanics and vote for Obama if there is heated public criticism of the policy.
Democrats say the amnesty has boosted support for Obama on the campaign trail among the critical Latino voting bloc. Thats vital for Obama, because his overall approval ratings have fallen amid the stalled economy, high unemployment and record deficits.

Wait till Willard gets hold of this...
he’ll include all the grey headed old abuelas..
Better the old gray abuelas. Most Mexican middle school and high school dropouts are bangers.
he better pray that we don’t pick up 4 senate seats.
Right. Stupid voters. This admin needs tools. And yet, I do not foresee anyone who will take a stand, sure, they’ll boldly question as long as they maintain their comfort level. But will any take a real stand?
I have no children. I do not fear my progeny living under an iron boot (I’ll see a bit of socialism or some sort of “ism” anyway). But the ills that will befall me will belong to me alone and I am resigned to them.
I am willing to take a stand. But there is no need if those who have “money in the game” won’t stand with me. I’ll help you fight for the future of your children but if you won’t fight why should I?
And if you will fight, where should we begin?
Why the hell is the House allowing even one cent of funding for this abomination????
Once you violate laws passed by congress without impunity, you have unlimited power.
Thanks Mr. Boehner.
Beauty school dropout
Bet this new category of people neither have a command of the English language nor read and write it.
I am willing to bet that this amnesty program covers over 5 million illegals.
