Obama had two years to grant blanket amnesty and he didn't. He could have sorted the whole thing in your favor in fifteen minutes and he didn't. And you're still waiting at his feet for him to grant you freedom.

First of all, I'm not waiting for amnesty. I was born here, and my ancestors were both native american indians and caucasian immigrants. Second, amnesty would be beyond the president's executive powers since immediately after granting amnesty, it would be invalid again until congress changes immigration law.

His position in fact is that your immigrant family members are still likely illegal- he can come for you whenever he wants to but he is graciously choosing not to, for now.

Thanks for making ASSumptions.

We racist Americans only want two things regarding Mexico: get control of the boarder and make immigrants suffer all the same taxes and regulations that we do while they are here. Mass exportation is a bogey man story told by Democrats to keep you in line.

If you think immigrants don't suffer, you're dead wrong. To keep the government from finding out, the vast majority of businesses still withhold taxes from the paychecks of "undocumented" immigrants and treat them exactly as they would a normal employee in terms of taxes.

So it's even worse than you'd like to believe; the current situation makes immigrants permanent second-class citizens. They grow up here, live here, pay taxes here, but don't get citizenship and so don't have the right to vote to determine how their taxes are spent. They can't legally get driver's licenses in most states, and they can't get many forms of insurance we take for granted.

Even more tellingly, I bet you're not aware that a large portion of those undocumented immigrants actually file their federal taxes at the end of the year using a federal tax ID that was assigned to them at one point in the past. That's right; they have no valid social security card, but still end up paying and filing federal and state taxes.
