So the current political gossip in the air is President Obama may sign an executive order that’ll allow up to 5 million undocumented immigrants to avoid deportation. This might happen this week.
That’s pretty big, especially because this is such a divisive issue. For what it’s worth, the Prez gets a thumbs up from me. I have my own opinions on immigration laws, but I don’t see it as an issue that can be “solved” without addressing other global issues. That said, focusing efforts on borders rather than actively looking to deport those who are already here (especially if they’re law abiding) is a better place to be than where we are now.
Some people say Obama hasn’t done enough to reform immigration laws while others say he kept deportation rates high to appease Republicans.
I don’t care about fault because we all play a role in the state of this country and the world, whether actively or passively. In any case, I think this is a move that will at least start conversations and reignite mainstream interest in immigration laws. I’m personally all for it, but I can see why others may not.
What do you think?
Peace out, party people.
