Please take the time to read the excellent op-ed article titled "Rethinking deportation: New immigration rule would erode law, harm families", that appears in today’s Oregonian. 

It was written by Rick LaMountain. (Rick is OFIR Vice President).  Rick writes how the Obama administration is undermining immigration laws by administrative rule making.

In his article Rick quotes author Thomas Sowell as saying; “The purpose of immigration laws and policies is to serve the national interest of this country.” It certainly is not in the best interest of our country to reward and encourage lawlessness.

By undermining existing immigration law and rewarding individuals who openly break those laws, President Obama is debasing the American concept of the Rule of Law.
