Reaction to dropped immigration cases

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo says he is looking for a way to challenge an announcement by the Obama administration that deportation cases will be dismissed for undocumented students and other low-priority immigration offenders.

Tancredo says he believes it's illegal, but it may be up to a judge to decide.

According to the Denver Post, there is no estimate of how many of the more than 300,000 deportation cases currently being reviewed involve immigrants in Colorado. There are an estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.

Supporters say the decision is welcome news to kids who know no other home than this country and their families who are worrying every day about the possibility of being deported
