White House Honors Young Adults Who Came to US Illegally
The Hill ^ | 6/16/2014

Posted on 06/18/2014 4:44:46 PM PDT by Altura Ct.

The White House will honor 10 young adults on Tuesday who came to the United States illegally and qualified for the president’s program to defer deportation actions.

Each person has qualified for the government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program, which delays removal proceedings against them as long as they meet certain guidelines.

They will be honored as “Champions of Change,” the White House said in a statement Monday because they “serve as success stories and role models in their academic and professional spheres.”

They emigrated from Mexico, Colombia, Morocco, India, Taiwan and the Philippines, and many of them work in professions related to immigration policy or have helped launch initiatives that promote reform.

In 2012, President Obama created the program through an executive order, which defers any action on the status of people who came to the U.S. illegally as children for two years and can be renewed. It doesn’t provide any legal status.

People who qualify include those who came to the U.S. before turning 16, resided in the U.S. continuously since 2007 and people who are either currently in school, have graduated or received a certificate of completion for high school or were honorably discharged from the military.

Program recipients also cannot have been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor or three or more misdemeanors.

The event comes with the prospects for immigration reform dim, following the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) in his GOP primary last week.

Obama had recently directed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to delay his review of the government’s deportation policy in hopes that Congress could pass a reform bill by the August recess.

After Cantor’s downfall, however, many believe it is unlikely the GOP-controlled House will move on immigration ahead of November’s midterm elections.

Could this Obama “first” be because American Hispanics don’t like a leader who is so lame, they want a leader who obeys the country’s laws. That’s a fact.

Well, that was certainly low key. Guess it didn’t help to have the illegal aliens invasion on the southwest border taking place at the moment.

"Yea to criminals and the invasion of this nation!"

If/when the Reconquista foreign invaders find their Fuhrer, Obama can finally have his Vichy moment:

And all done - with the help of the American Reconquista Bund - without soldiers/armies.

Elections have consequences!

To the four million Republicans/conservatives who stayed home last presidential election in opposition to Romney, you knew this type of stuff was going to be the norm with our Marxist President. You knew Obama would finish his destruction of our nation. Even though you knew this, you made a thoughtful decision to not vote, even if it meant it would help a known Marxist win a second term.

You have NO right to bitch about anything Obama has done this second term. You had a chance to stop this Marxist, and you chose NOT to! Please don’t delude yourselves into believing that you’re Patriots; you most certainly are not! You helped to hand our nation, and it’s final destruction over to Obama, even though you saw what he did his first term.

The 4 million Republicans/conservatives who stayed home hold responsibility for what we’re now facing. Sadly, we will NOT recover from this. We are beyond what an election can fix. Obama has flooded every facet of our society with his Marxist rot.

I guess the four million Republicans/conservatives who stayed home showed us a thing or two...now didn’t they?

Well, of course. I mean, after all, they are criminals, he is a criminal, so why wouldn't he welcome them? They are kindred spirits. Why should anyone be surprised?

The democrats have celebrated whenever their leaders got away with crimes ever since Bill Clinton committed perjury, while Hillary was lying about the “nuts and sluts” who kept telling tall tales about Bill being a serial rapist. Still, I never would have guessed that even they would hold a White House celebration to honor criminals who aren’t even leftist campaign donors or politically correct terrorists. Democrats disgust me.

If the GOP Establishment had put up somebody worth voting for instead of the pro-homo adoption, pro-homo military, pro-big government, liberal one term ex governor of Taxachusetts, Mitt Romneycare, maybe they would have come out to vote.

If only the GOP Pres. candidates spelled out who Obama and his crowd really were and the destruction they were planning...

If only the GOP Pres. candidates didn't hire campaign consultants whose missions was to attack the Tea Party and conservatives while they were getting in bed with the leftwing media & politicos...

If only the GOP candidates attacked the left as the Democrat candidates attacked the right...

If only those absent voters hadn't faced the sight of Dem. Pres. candidates belligerently leading charges for victory as GOP Pres. candidates politely marched to surrender...

Then maybe those 4 million conservative would have joined the fight and voted!

It’s not that simple. Romney or Obama. Those are the choices you had. That’s it. There has to be one that disgust you more than the other, and when it comes to Presidential power, it’s worth getting off the couch to lessen the blow to our nation.

A better analogy might be to ask, if someone is holding a gun to your head and one is a pellet gun and the other a .357, which one do you choose? You just don’t have the choice to sit it out. Decide now, or certainly die. Unfortunately, our country chose death.

Hillary's back-pedalling like crazy---watch her run over Obama w/ her campaign bus.

Hillary stunned a CNN audience on Tuesday by saying that the US should deport thousands of unaccompanied minors swarming at the border. "They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are. Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn't mean the child gets to stay," she warned parents south of the border

Betcha that statement was group-focused for voter-impact before she dared utter it.

As Ken5050 posted----we eagerly await Cong Gutierrez's response.

Don’t forget, some of the ones that Romney and crew destroyed, alienated the Candidate so bad that they nor their backers did not even think of raising a finger in ‘favor’ of Mitt.

WELL, other than ‘that’ one.....

Like the Alinsky inspired Commie mentored* lawyer she is, she has inserted her loopholes. Just 2 are:

1) "as soon as" in your quote "as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families."

How will that be "determined" or how far will those illegal children be question when Holder's 1st response was to send scores of lawyer down to "defend" them.

2) Even more direct is her next sentence in the same paragraph of your quote“There are concerns about whether all of them should be sent back, but I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families.” (LINK)

That's "I think all of them who can be" "reunited with their families" - EVEN if their families are illegally in the US.

[ *From frontpagemag.com: “That summer she went to work at the most important radical law firm in America at that point: Truehaft, Walker and Bernstein in Oakland... Two of their partners were members of the Communist Party." ]
