An outspoken group of undocumented immigrants, who have met twice with senior
White House advisor Valerie Jarrett to discuss the need for immigration reform,
say the administration has rejected a request for an executive order to halt
deportations of students who came to the U.S. illegally as young children.
The four college students, well-known among immigration activists for
their 1500-mile march from Miami, Fla., to Washington, D.C., sought presidential
intervention after pending legislative measures that would provide a path to
legal residency have become stalled in Congress.
One Senate bill --
known as the Dream Act -- sponsored by Republican Sen. Richard Lugar and
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin would grant legal status to students who came to the
U.S. before the age of 15, have no criminal records, and complete schooling or
military service. It would not extend protection to illegal immigrant parents. A
similar measure has been introduced in the House.
“We are extremely

Felipe Matos, 24, who has spent the past decade in the U.S. after migrating with
his parents from Brazil. “The reality is that current enforcement-only policies

Apparently these illegal alien college students are not too bright, or don't read this blog. As has been shown, there is a defacto and deliberate policy by the Obama Regime and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) not to deport illegal aliens in general, and illegal alien college students in particular. Comrade Obama has issued an executive order, but one issued by word of mouth, not one on paper. He cannot issue such an executive order openly, as it will become more evidence of impeachable offenses for violation of his Oath of Office requiring him to see that the laws of the United States be faithfully executed. And Comrade President doesn't want the immigration laws of the United States faithfully executed. Of course, these illegals also are well trained in Alinsky tactics of lies, exaggerations, demands and public whining, just as Obama is. The problem is that they are frightened it will not work:
The students and other immigration advocates have grown frustrated with what they see as lack of presidential leadership on a reform bill and many worry that the window for achieving legislation ahead of the 2012 presidential campaign may be quickly closing.
I think they fear President Jan Brewer.
