Agree with Obama's New Immigration Policy?

Tell us if you think he's right to stop deporting younger undocumented immigrants and grant work permits.

Younger undocumented immigrants scored a victory today as President Barack Obama announced his support to end their deportations and begin granting work permits for some eligible students, The Huffington Post reports.

The Dream Act allows undocumented indviduals who attend college or serve in the military and are in good standing a path to citizenship. It passed in the House of Representatives but failed in the Senate in 2010.

Close to home, we've heard from residents in and about how the Dream Act would change their lives for the better.

Carmichael, do you agree with President Obama's new immigration policy? Why or why not? Please tell us in a comment below.

Two things upset me about this latest move by this president: One, he has complete disdain for the rule of law, using his appointees to put his policies in place, DESPITE CONGRESS; and two, with the job market as bad as it is for Americans today, he has just added to the competition for the few jobs available---and ALL to get votes! Are you graduating students who are facing the highest unemployment rate since WWII still happy with his "hope and change?" Was this the kind of change you really wanted? Well, re-elect him and you will be sure to get more of the same! WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

THIS IS A CHEAP TRICK OBAMA'S PULLING TO PULL IN MEXICAN VOTES. ANOTHER REASON TO VOTE HIS SORRY ASS OUT IN NOVEMBER .

Unemployment for this demographic is at it's highest rate since WWII and the president of this country is going to make the situation worse by this executive order?!! This is a very unethical abuse of power for political gain during an election year.

Well said. This goes against everything I learned in Government class. When you said "Wake Up!!!" Do you mean like "Wake Up!" Dr. Ron Paul or "Wake Up!!!" vote for Romney because he has a better chance of beating President Obama?

First secure the borders. And please, use the Constitution and go through Congress!
