Unemployment jumped up to 8.3% (adding to the historic time for unemployment over 8%) yesterday, and the Obama admin released their rules for pseudo-amnesty for certain illegals

Excellent! The price for being an illegal is now set at just $465, which can be waived under certain conditions.
Up to 1.4 million people could benefit from the change, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, a nonpartisan research group.

The federal government is already known to be highly inefficient and tends to miss things: does anyone think that they will miss criminal issues with many of these illegals?
