I'm thankful for the court decision.
Really? I myself am saddened by it. There is a ton of fear and terror already in many of the undocumented folks, they were in many cases living in fear and terror before they made their (for many) perilous journey to this country. Now we can add in that they are facing an ever growing possibility of being deported and returned to the very thing(s) they were trying to escape from.
One thing that this so called ruling from the top court shows us is, that we are sorely in need of a 9th justice on the bench. Since the current group didn't even issue a statement as to how each side arrived at their decision, we are left wondering. Their brief statement of 'The judgement is affirmed by an equally divided Court.' tells us literally nothing other than they are divided and are frustrated.
Considering your so far rampant support of Bernie Sanders, I am somewhat surprised by your apparent glee on this matter. Mr.Sanders himself has stated the desire to increase opportunities for individuals to gain permanent residency and for undocumented persons, especially the younger ones to be given a pathway towards permanent residency.
With a gridlocked set of Houses, the President was attempting to give people, in particular young people who were brought to this country by their parents when they were babies, infants or children, to offer them a chance. Now they have had that removed, even though they've been here for a long time, and were educated here and are ready to give back.
And all of these people young and old have been contributing to our economy by making purchases here and contributing to tax coffers when they have made various purchases or if they have obtained a phone line or an electric provider. Are we to reimburse them or just summarily boot them out like a stinky bag of trash? I say we offer them a chance, offer them a future.
