President's Immigration Announcement Sparks Controversy

President Obama's executive order will limit deportation of the children of illegal immigrants who meet specific guildelines.

President Obama issued an executive order this afternoon, making a major mark on the immigration reform front. 

The President’s executive order will apply to all young adults no more then 30 years old, who arrived in the United States before age 16 and have lived here for at least five years.  They must also have no criminal record, and have earned a high school diploma, be in school or have served in the military. 

CNN reported that Mitt Romney said that the United states need a long-term solution to the immigration issue, saying in part “I think the action the President took today makes it more difficult to reach that long term solution because and executive order is, of course, a short term matter and can be reversed by subsequent presidents.” 

Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack and her opponent, Raul Ruiz, have also issued statements on the President's announcement.
