Illegal Aliens Can’t Be Deported Under New Policy

Thanks to the regime of President Barack Obama, 800,000 illegal aliens can now relax and put down roots. Under a new policy, if an alien came to the United States as a child and has lived a law-abiding life, he has no fear of deportation.

The announcement comes one week before Obama plans to speak to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Orlando, Fla. The Hispanic vote will be crucial in some swing States come November. Obama has been falling out of favor recently with the Hispanic population.

Under the plan, illegal aliens cannot be deported if they came to the United States before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five consecutive years, have no criminal history, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED, or served in the military.

Illegal aliens who meet the criteria can apply for a work permit which can be renewed every two years.

“Many of these young people have already contributed to our country in significant ways. Prosecutorial discretion, which is used in so many other areas, is especially justified here,” wrote Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Young illegal aliens will not be allowed to apply for a work permit until they turn 16, but officials have said that illegal aliens younger than 16 will not be deported.
