MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama immigration activists are praising the Obama administration's decision to quit deporting many younger illegal immigrants. The Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice says the change is a step in the right direction. Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions disagrees and calls the change "backdoor amnesty."

    Obama chooses which laws he wants to enforce. Immigration has been a law he chooses NOT to enforce forcing the states to do it. Looks like this time he overstepped his boundaries.

    Obummer is doing this solely for the hispanic vote. Hope that they see that they are being used by Obama for this purpose. There needs to a clear concise plan for immigration.Obama needs to stop playing the Hispanics for fools. They can see right thru his evil plan. Romney & Rubio are working on a plan that will work. If the republicans get the majority in the house an senate, There WILL be such a plan. If not, it will be the same old, same old.

    All of the people that are in the government from the President on down to those that are in local and county governments need replacing anyway. They all suck and could careless about the people they represent period.

    Obamas popularity continues to drop, so he is looking for any kind of help in the voting booth. I guess he doesn't realize the majority of Americans don't agree with his immigration policies. No president since FDR has won re-election with unemployment over 7.2%. Now he is adding 800,000 illegal immigrants to the pot. He's struggling...

    Agree with Sessions. Obama is just looking for votes. He's just added MORE to the unemployed. Just changed the age bracket.

    Obummer is begging for votes, I guess he's afraid the gay votes won't be enough.
