Immigration Service Expects Flood of Applications From Youths

Starting Wednesday, under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, illegal immigrants who came as children can seek to stay legally under the Obama initiative.

Immigration authorities are bracing for a deluge of applications starting Wednesday when more than 1.2 million young illegal immigrants who were brought to America as children can seek to legally stay and work in the country under President Obama’s most ambitious immigration initiative.

Even before the first request is filed, critics and advocates alike are warning of potential budget shortfalls and a logjam of paperwork that could mar the program, delay processing and facilitate fraud.

Advocacy groups have planned public celebrations, legal aid seminars and other events in major cities to herald a plan that has sparked rejoicing and relief in immigrant communities, and anger among Republicans who view it as a White House ploy for Latino support in an election year and a backdoor amnesty that usurps congressional authority.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which will review the applications, is expecting about 1.2 million applications on top of the 6 million it normally adjudicates for citizenship, residency and work visas every year, officials said. That’s up from 800,000 expected when Obama announced the plan in June.

    And of course this will cost those of us who pay taxes millions if not billions of dollars. It is of course completely illegal. But, that has never stopped Obama before.

    Watch the flood of “young” Illegals crossing the borders to apply for the papers. They will
    be a major business providing documentation for them at the mexicn flea markets in a
    city near you. In Houston there are several mexican flea market places when you can
    for a “small fee” get papers to help you fool the police and avoid arrest. Of course these
    work only if the employer does not check the details to close or the police do not get
    assistance from the Feds when they run background checks.

    That’s good we’ll have their names & addresses & can send them home on the next bus.

    Since they are all in line – round them up and ship them out. They are still illegal no matter how they arrived here. What about the thousands plus of twenty somethings that are out of work and real citizens of America? They continue to get it in the shorts because we are hiring illegals.

    Keep your powder dry!

    Like the Mexican freeloader waving the Mexican Flag at the Olympics, Mexico, Drug Cartels and Socialists are ecstatic with joy.Mexico unloads it’s criminals and poorest….. The Drug Cartels get more access and the Socialists load up on new voters, which is how they were able to grow strong in the first place since Americans weren’t joining up…. Over the last three decades, socialism has used immigration to swell their ranks and now they are close to taking over.Ted Kennedy saw to that….. Bless his lying, lecherous heart.Politicians, Hollywood activists, Political Pundits, the media, the UN and the Mexican Government have all told the American people that there is nothing they can do to stop it and they’ve told us that soooo many times, that we’ve all but stopped trying.Oh. What the Hell….”Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow,”Except for all the handouts to the millions of freeloaders, American Citizenship doesn’t mean much anymore…. It’s given away free to anyone who demands it. No strings attached…….The handouts and freebies (aka “Rights” ) are what the Mexicans, Muslims, and all the other third world denizens care about as they arrogantly March, Lobby, Protest and make demand upon demand for accommodation and “Their Rights”.Try behaving like that in any of their countries and you’d lose your head in a heartbeat, right after they lynch their Politicians.
