Central American families may have been misled by rumors — Started by the Barack Obama Administation to cause another crisis, since he is unable to work within the parameters of the US Govenment and often spread by profit-seeking smugglers — that their children will readily be reunited with relatives already in the U.S.

Republicans argue that The president's 2012 decision not to deport so-called dreamers — young adults brought to the country illegally as children — has led more families to hope for similar treatment.

I really dislike rumor and gossip-mongers. It serves no purpose but to de-rail and promote hysteria.

Well then you will never like the first responder's responces.

Along with horrible conditions at home, Pres Obama's dream act just made it a no brainer to send thier kids.

Pres Obama needs to learn what unintended consqueses are.

I wonder if he actually cares?

 I don't really understand how intellectally dishonest one has to be to actually fight this idea.

I have stated that I live in a very mixed middle class neighborhood, but 10 minutes up the road is a ghetto, where black people kill other black people almost nightly.

If someone went throught that neighborhood and told the people there that our homes are now open, we are not going to lock our doors, if you go inside, we are not going to ask you to leave, and we are not going to call the police; that night we would be over run.

That is exactly what Barack Obama did.

I don't think that they are unintended consequences in the least, and I think he does care, he wants to unmake the USA and remake it to suit him.
