Americans forced to pick a side when the answer is somewhere in the middle

Besides the obvious election year pandering this Executive Order exposes, the larger concern is the effect this will have on the national discussion on illegal immigration.

The President is dividing this country once again for short term electoral gain.

Instead of actively pursuing The Dream Act and finding compromise in Congress, the President will do an end- around and only further entrench the extremes in this debate.

We cannot deport or lock up 12 million people, nor should we have open borders and no idea of who is entering America.

Also, the assumption is everyone here illegally wants to be a citizen as opposed to those who come here solely for economic reasons.

The Executive Branch has done nothing to help the plight of those here illegally and has only ignited the fires once again, forcing Americans to pick a side of the fence when the solution is somewhere in the middle.

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass up… so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
