Should Kids of Undocumented Aliens Be Spared Deportation?
Dream Act died in the Senate, but new Obama administration policy embraces goals of measure.
Immigration exploded as a campaign issue Friday when President Obama announced a new policy on undocumented immigrants under 30: They won’t be deported if they have Dream Act qualities. Obama called it a “temporary, stopgap” action.
Supporters cheered the policy as sensible and humane. Opponents jeered it as an “end run” around Congress. Critics said Obama was pandering to the Hispanic population in order to garner votes, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
