The mother of a Maryland second-grader who questioned First Lady Michelle Obama about the Obama administration's immigration policy will not be deported, federal officials said Thursday.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement will not take action against the mother, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Will not take action!! Really? Why not let every form a foreigner just walk right on in?

"If support for legalizing illegal immigrants can run as high as 78 percent, it seems fair to conclude that intense opposition to such a step is confined to a small minority. But if support for deporting illegal immigrants can run as high as 69 percent when no alternative is offered, effective organizing can easily make the anti-amnesty vote look much larger."


Darn, article is no longer free, anyway you get the picture even in the few paragraphs available.

From the article:

ICE removed a record 387,790 illegal immigrants in the year ending Sept. 30, 2009, according to the agency. That's a 5 percent increase over the same period in 2008, when the agency removed 369,221 illegal immigrants. The agency deported 298,401 of those immigrants in 2009, and the rest left on their own power.
