AIR DATE: November 23, 2012

When President Obama announced the government would no longer deport young undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. when they were children, many immigrants emerged from the shadows and revealed their status. We'll hear from a young undocumented Las Vegan about how federal deferred action lifted that fear for him, but still remains for some of his loved ones.

    If someone is in the U.S. illegally, they should rightly fear deportation, for they are here, duh, illegally. If these illegal aliens want to be legal and thus alleviate their fear, there are long established legal processes that will do that. Indeed, well over 1 million (!) people per year *legally* immigrate to the U.S. and become citizens.
