The JTA covered the response of Jewish organizations to President Obama's executive order to stop the deportations of some undocumented youth who were brought to this country before they turned 16 and currently are under 30 years old. Mark Hetfield, HIAS' President & CEO (Interim), was quoted. The Times of Israel also picked up the story.

I love your organization, & am sorry to see so many trlols leaving their hateful comments here. It doesn't matter what you say to people like them. They believe what they want to believe, whatever lines up with their own narrow-minded opinions. They come on here to bully you & undermine the good you've accomplished. My advice to you is ..go right ahead & delete them. This is your site & you can do whatever the hell you want to do with it. They're certainly not listening to you, so you have no reason to listen to them. They want to put a giant box over top of America, a land that THEY have stolen from the Native-Americans (and then FORCED them to learn English). It's typical ..greedy, selfish & unChristian. Oh, & I just LOVE they way they keep throwing out those media statistics they've collected off the Internet (or more than likely, Fox News). To here them speak, you would think we were over here waxing our halos. American citizens commit crimes EVERY DAY ..but that's okay, right? Give me a break. You're only a citizen by virtue of being born here. And the whole, my family came here legally argument doesn't hold water. Immigration laws were relatively lenient before the turn of this century. That's not the case today. Oh, & I HAVE to address the woman who lives in South America it's incredibly petty that you would move back here & take out on complete strangers whatever injustices have been done to you there. That makes you no better than them. Thank you, Standing FIRM, for supporting a fair immigration policy amidst the fear & hate-mongering of so-called American citizens .
