OCCUPY IMMIGRATION

Many of us Baby Boomers have foreign relationships. By this, I mean we have a relation (daughter/son-in-law, mate, grandchild, etc.) who is a foreigner, not a US citizen or allowed to stay here more than 3 months at a time. If you don't already know, marriage doesn't change the laws. Only we the people can do so. Presently there is a lot of various immigration laws being had at state levels. It is interesting to note that federal laws for immigration differ from say, Arizona state laws. This is, unfortunately, where true discrimination exists IMHO.

Presently the current President (Obama) has suspended deportation proceedings against illegals who pose no threats to our homeland (national) security. Isn't that nice? Really, all the illegals are for sure absolutely no threat and never will be. Yippiscoo for them. Don't get me wrong, I applaud the attempt to grant back-door amnesty to no threat illegals, but I also take great offense at the perceived and acknowledged low-priority cases in the courts because they are all geared towards ILLEGAL folks here, and, let's face it, it is geared to Hispanics. They make up a large piece of the voters in the U.S.A., and it is good to not make the kids born and raised here from illegal no threat parents not have to pay for those naughty parents.

My problem is the dis-inclusion of the non-Hispanic no threat people who came here legally, worked, and overstayed their 3 month visa. There was no threats with those people YET they are automatically banned from the U.S.A. for 10 years. Isn't that nice? Where is the back-door amnesty for them? There is none. Zero tolerance for all those Europeans, Aussies, and Kiwis who overstayed their visas. Such a threat to us because they loved it here, paid taxes from paychecks, fell in love, and maybe even married one of us. To bad, the law is the law, except of course when it comes to an upcoming election year for some no threat illegals.
