EPN welcomes new US immigration rules

Obama’s new policy will shield millions from deportation
New immigration measures announced last week by United States President Barack Obama are the most important that have been seen in many decades, President Peña Nieto said recently.
The U.S. president has given more than 4 million illegal immigrants protection from deportation: those who have been in the country for more than five years and are parents of citizens or legal residents are eligible to apply for work permits.
“What I’m describing is accountability — a common-sense, middle-ground approach: if you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. If you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported,” Obama said.
His Mexican counterpart welcomed the news. “It is an act of justice that gives value to the contributions by millions of Mexicans towards the development of that country.”
The president said Mexico’s consular network in the U.S. has been instructed to provide support to those Mexicans who wish to become legal under the new rules.
Those rules could shield from deportation as many as nearly half the estimated 11 million people living illegally in the U.S.
“We’re going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security,” Obama said in his speech on Thursday night. “Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids. We’ll prioritize, just like law enforcement does every day.”

  1. No matter how many ways you twist this sheet … it does not read quite right! Why would Mexico be pleased by the deportation of Mexican National criminals back to Mexico?!?

    Why would the U.S. want to keep Mexicans and other South American Nationals in the country when they are poorly educated and mostly unskilled when they came into the States, and families who bore children here are unable to educate those children at home on American culture and English, and thus the students do so poorly in the pubic schools , and mostly drop out by the eighth grade.

    Of course those immigrants that entered the U.S. per our quota system, learned English and passed their immigration test are most welcome in America. Yes American needs low paid workers in construction and maintenance of the infrastructure that is dire need of upgrade. and increased capacity,

    It would seem while these illegals continue to enter over the southern border and collect welfare, wealthy Americans are leaving the U.S. to countries that enforce their Rule-of- Law and borders.
