34 Million Resident Cards Requested by Immigration Services

ID cardWASHINGTON (AP) — The Homeland Security Department appears to be readying itself for an increase in the number of immigrants living illegally in the country to seek work permits once President Barack Obama announces his executive action plans to change immigration rules.

A draft contract proposal the government published earlier this month shows that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services wants to buy card stock to make as many as 34 million Permanent Resident Cards, or Green Cards, and work permits in the next five years.

Administration officials won’t say what Obama will do on immigration. But it’s widely believed he will announce plans later this year to temporarily protect millions of immigrants living in the country illegally from deportation and give them new work permits.

    i am sure the AMERICAN PEOPLE can’t wait for the nut to make up his mind.It would be a lot cheaper to send them home and let them apply the legal way. we have a lot of young AMERICANS lookiing for jobs,but we have to send jobs to other countries and now the illegals cost us more then some older USA people who could use some help but are to proud to ask for it goes right now we don’t need a war the idiots in D.C doing a good job to bring us down. in case you wonder i came to the USA legal some 60 years ago i was proud to come to USA i worked till i was 65 became a citizen 55 yerars ago everything was so much better. i wonder why we still have an immigration office.

    I’m sure the 100 million AMERICANS who are of working age – and currently out of work – will be greatly encouraged by this action. (**sarcasm**)
