    Dreamers are finally getting their dream--or at least part of it. Starting on Wednesday, illegal immigrants aged 30 or younger who were brought to the country as children may apply for relief from deportation and a two-year, renewable work permit under President Barack Obama's deferred action program.

    As many as 1.7 million people could qualify, though only 700,000 of them are older than 17, according to a Pew Hispanic Center analysis. The three application forms required are already posted on a government website. But only people who have graduated from or are enrolled in high school and have no criminal records will be accepted. And there's a $465 fee to apply.

    On Wednesday, immigrant groups around the country will be holding hundreds of forums to help people figure out if they qualify for the status and what kinds of documentation they need to prove it. If a person commits fraud on an application, he or she will become a deportation priority, a senior administration official told reporters on Tuesday. If an applicant doesn't commit fraud but is still rejected from the temporary legal status, the government won't flag him for deportation or share his information with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    It's up to individual states to decide whether people who gain the temporary protected status and work permit should be allowed to get driver's licenses or qualify for in-state tuition, the administration official added........

    They should have to do 2 years of public service before being given the work permits, or be allowed to stay. If they do 5 years, then thier parents can stay as well, if they do 2 years of public service themselves.

    One thing I will say about "illegals" from Mexico in particular. They have a work ethic. They come to work not necessarily to sign up for welfare/food stamps when they first get here. The majority want to better themselves.

    i support the dream act, I just think it needs to be coupled with harsher punishments for those who employ illegals, and an expansion of ICE.

    This is true. Mexican immigrants have the very core principles that make them naturals for the Republican party. They are deeply religious, hardworking, and family oriented. The GOP is cutting off its nose to spite its face these days when it comes to immigrants.

    The hacks even gutted George Bush's plan to increase work permits. Bush understood the value these people bring to our nation.

    Our quota system does not meet the labor demand for immigrant labor. The demand is high, the supply is kept artificially low. When our government creates that kind of situation, employers are going to go around the rules.

    If a farmer needs 50 migrant workers to pick his crops and the government only allows him 10, he is going to hire 40 illegals.

    Migrant work, by definition, means moving around a lot. Americans are not going to leave their suburban homes and drive their Volkswagon Echos all over the country every day to pick various crops. They just aren't. Every prosperous nation in history has had a significant immigrant labor force.

    Prior to the recession, we had full employment with the same numer of illegals we have today, if not more. This SCREAMS two things. One, illegal immigrants are not stealing our jobs. Two, there is demand for immigrant labor that is not being met with the current quota system.


    Painting immigrants as a bunch of theiving, murdering, job-stealing wetbacks is the height of stupidity for the Republican party. They are alienating the kind of people who would make a rock solid core of the GOP.

    Our government policies created this problem. The fix is very simple.

    Obama's solution is just another band-aid fix that contributes to the Rube Goldberg nature of every aspect of government today.

    I have no problem with granting the children of illegal immigrants some protections. But that will not fix the big picture problem.

    We need to address the larger problem, and the small problems will work themselves out automatically.

    Wrong answer. The employers have been forced between a rock and a hard place by government policy. It is the government policy which needs to be fixed, not employers.

    Why do you think the government refuses to expand permits for migrate workers?
