Kevin Johnson blogged earlier, President Obama is in San Francisco today to, among other things, discuss immigration reform. During his speech, Ju Hong, a member Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights through Education (ASPIRE), spoke out and said, "Mr. President, please use your executive authority to halt [deportations]. We agree that we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform, but at the same time, you have the power to stop deportations."
President Obama responded, "Actually, I don't, and that's why we're here."

What are your thoughts? Should President Obama use his executive authority to halt deportation?
