PowerLine posts a fascinating comment from an immigration attorney.
...The proposed executive action on immigration (or whatever name you
want to give it) will allow [illegal aliens] who have US citizen or
green-card children and who have been here for five years to apply for
some kind of quasi-status and open market work authorization. That would
allow them to work for a period of time at any employer, the
authorization presumably renewable until they decide to leave or have an
option for US permanent resident status (green card status). This, the
administration tells us, is fair and just and Biblical – yada/yada.
But this option is explicitly NOT available to those in the US in a
valid legal status. There are millions of people in the US who have
temporary status – as students or temporary workers or researchers or as
investors (lots of Koreans own businesses with E-2 investor visas, for
example). These people – many of them have US citizen children and have
been here five years. These people who have been here legally and not
violated their immigration status – these people are explicitly NOT
eligible for open market work authorization, renewable indefinitely.
You must be in violation of the law to benefit from this provision....
Obozo's homeboyzzzz, hey.
