Uh Oh: Obama’s new unconstitutional immigration edict already breaking up families

These are some of the first illegals spared by Obama’s new unconstitutional edict, but their parents aren’t so fortunate:

MCCLATCHY DC – Chie Yee Yang, 19, visited his deportation officer at the Department of Homeland Security in Sacramento Tuesday morning and was told he and his brother Kawah Yee Yang, 16, would not be deported for at least two years.

“He told us, ‘You’ve heard about the new policy, we can’t really touch you,’ ” said a relieved Chie, who was a valedictorian of the first graduating class at Sacramento City Unified School District’s School of Engineering and Sciences. He and his brother can now apply for two-year work permits from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service.

But the news was bittersweet. The boys’ parents, Yanshan Yu and Sumei Yang, are still under deportation orders to return to either their native China or Colombia, where they lived for 18 years and had their sons.

“I’m happy my sons can stay and complete their education, but sad we’re still going to be separated,” said Yu, 51, clutching a leather portfolio containing his immigration papers. “I’m worried about what’s going to happen to us and our sons – they need parental guidance. What if they get into some trouble?”
