In a clear case of partisan politics President Obama has decided to grant immunity from deportation – and work permits – to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens. Up to 800,000 illegal aliens will now be able to stay in the country and work legally.
With his back to the wall, trailing in key states like Michigan and Wisconsin, President Obama is going after the Hispanic vote. But by allowing up to 800,000 more people into the labor force when the unemployment rate is at 8.1% he is going to make it harder for people here already legally to find jobs.
Clearly Obama is getting desperate. Working Class people are going to be the ones hardest hit by this amnesty move and could very well turn against Democrats in the Fall.
These 800,000 will not get citizenship however they won’t have to fear deportation and will have work permits.
The president hopes they will become loyal Democratic Party supporters when they do get to vote.
