Wouldn't executions be better so that money won't be wasted on these kinds of people?

I can't make sense of Obama's position on illegal immigrants. One day he's described as a deporter-in-chief for deporting more than any other prez, the other he supports the DREAM Act or uses an executive order to indefinitely defer the deportation of millions more? Can you make sense of it?
It's also to Obama's (and the Democrats') political advantage to provide easier paths to citizenship to these undocumented migrants. These migrants tend to vote Democrat, after all. Republican opponents would and have naturally criticized Obama's and the Democrats's desire to make this happen a cynical political ploy to stack the electorate against their opposition's favor. Obama thus came up with the compromise you mentioned.
congrats on your graduation! did you manage to find a good job? my brother is planning to go into poli sci. he likes the field, has a lot of general knowledge and is a hard worker. but he's not sure a poli sci diploma would open many doors, or that it's a commodity high in demand. what do you think?
I think a political science professor can make a better pitch about the discipline than I can. If there's anything I can say about political science as how I've been taught it, it's that it is a door to critical thinking and social engagement. Political science is about providing solutions to people's problems (from a political mindset), and accomplishing this will require both exploring thinking about issues from multiple perspectives and interacting with people directly to understand these perspectives more clearly.

What are your thoughts on executions?
I wouldn't mind the death penalty being abolished in the US for the sake of saving the government some grief and coin, but I personally wouldn't shed a tear for the clearly guilty if they got shot in the back of the head with a bullet.
