Maybe I’m getting soft in my old age, but does anyone really think that President Obama’s Aunt should be subject to deportation? Obama has unquestionable pardon authority and would anyone blame him for pardoning his Aunt and granting her citizenship? Maybe I’m off base here, but I think family should come before politics.
This is going to be a no-win situation for Obama. If he does the decent human thing as you suggest, he will be assailed by the rabid anti-immigration folks on the right. If he does not, he will be portrayed as a heartless monster by the bleeding hearts on the left.
