In many countries if you're caught having illegally entered and have no documentation, they will just shoot you in the back of the head and throw your body in a ditch.

The President of the United States is not a dictator or a king and cannot act alone without the consent of the majority of the people of the USA and their representatives in Congress. It has been so since the time of George Washington who insisted that he not be treated as a monarch. A pressure group cannot make demands on the President unless it conforms to wishes of the majority and is in conformance to the Constitution of the United States. Any other result would make the USA an oligarchy.

I believe 1 million blacks in prison should be let out under a amnesty plann saving our States and the Federal government 50-75 Billion dollars. 11 million is more than 1 million. Also, These 1 million need there records wiped clean and voting rights restored. Administrative relief should have come to black people first, especially since the Constitution allows this for former slaves and not for illegal aliens. Racism at it's finest, institutionalized, so how easy it was for them to commit genocide against me. I wondered why so many other groups of people wanted me to bless them, they knew due to racism, I would never get the rights I was entitled to, because my hair doesn't swing, so why not give them to them. Why? Because I actually need them for myself and as long as genocide is codified in a descendant of a slaves name, believe it or not, those other groups have no rights either.
