CNN and Fox News this morning and both reported on the Obama administration’s new guidelines would make it so young illegal immigrants would not face deportation, but instead would allow them to apply for work permits.
This is very controversial and some people refuse to look at both sides of the argument. Some people are very much against this, thinking that since these young folks (all must be under 30 to qualify) are all illegal citizens, they are here illegally, they are breaking the law and they should be deported and should not be able to get any special treatment or any amnesty. The other side is that these young adults were brought here at a young age and grew up here and some argue that it isn’t their fault that they were here illegally.
“The Department of Homeland Security said that, effective immediately, the government would no longer seek the deportation of illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, and would allow them to apply for work permits if they meet certain criteria.”
