House Democrats held a press conference on Thursday to ask President Barack Obama to use his pardon power for the illegal alien youth who came to the United States as children and then were given temporary legal status by Obama through his executive action, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. These illegal aliens, often referred to as "Dreamers" by the administration and liberal media, reportedly fear deportation under President-elect Donald Trump.

<< Dems Ask Obama to Pardon Dreamers >>

Yes, please save them from being tracked down, rounded up and deported. It's only fair not to keeping them terrorized. It's a matter of protecting our "huddled masses" -- indeed traditional American values -- against the wrecking ball of the xenophobes.

"A pardon is a government decision to allow a person who has been convicted of a crime, to be free and absolved of that conviction, as if never convicted."

Dreamers are defined not as youth convicted of crimes, but as youth brought here as children without authorization.

Once again, Democrats are saying they can redefine words and laws whenever they wish, however they wish to suit whatever purpose they wish. With such a destructive perception of logic and law, Trump should negate any pardons of any criminal enterprise employing such illegal tactics. To hell with the screams of Democrats. Arrest and deport any Democrat opposing the policy, just as Lincoln threw a few out of the country and others in prison.

We are a nation of LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, who came here for a better life, but did not walk to the welfare office to sign up for freebies, and did not dump multiple anchor brats, to be cared for and supported by US taxpayers.

They cared for their own.

They are citizens of another country.

We welcome legal immigration. We have deported aliens for many generations ! We also tear apart families when a person is sent to prison. Laws must be enforced or they are without meaning !

I'm pretty sure Presidential pardons can't be undone.

On the other hand pardons are for individuals and not groups and pardons can't be used to overturn existing law.

If someone is pardoned for auto theft they can't steal cars after that without going to jail.

These Democrats are living in fantasyland - but that's nothing new.

I wouldn't rule out Obama issuing millions of individual pardons however - and thinking it would go unchallenged.

Each individual pardon must be personally signed by the Prez..... He cannot do group blanket pardons or use an auto-pen. The Gov of Virginia is suspected of using an auto-pen for signing the hundreds if not thousands of pardons he gave State felons before the election. If true the pardons are worthless.

It would depend on Virginia law on pardons, but US blanket pardons are definitely no-go.
