Sowell, Thomas
June 2012
Enterprise/Salt Lake City;6/25/2012, Vol. 41 Issue 47, p15
The author comments on U.S. Barack Obama's executive order that grants rights to illegal immigrants who claim that they were brought into the country when they were children. He points out that Obama's executive order is good only as long as he remains president of the country. He notes that for individuals to come forward and claim the protection of the law is to declare publicly and officially that their parents entered the country illegally.
