By now we've all heard of the petitions filed with the White House asking to "peacefully" secede certain states from the Union. Sore losers? Or have they not studied American History? (Does the "Civil War" ring a bell? Bueller? Bueller?) Forty ominously solemn petitions, primarily from Red States, have sprouted up on https://petitions.whitehouse.gov . So it was only a matter of time before the pranksters weighed in. At least we think they're pranksters. "Deport Everyone That Signed A Petition To Withdraw Their State From The United States of America" popped up on the White House website late Monday.

The political law of gravity suggests President Obama should not have been able to survive a weak economy and an impassioned opposition - or, at least, that it should have been tougher for him to do so.

PARIS - They are among France's darkest days: Police dragged more than 13,000 Jews from their homes, confined them in a Paris cycling stadium with little food or water, and then deported them to their deaths in the concentration camp at Auschwitz. But even in France, one of the most brazen collaborations between authorities and the Nazis during World War II is unknown to many in the younger generation. Police are hoping to change that, opening up their archives on France's biggest single deportation of French Jews for the first time to the public on Thursday.

WASHINGTON - There's not much President Obama can do to boost the economy in the next five months, and that alone might cost him the election. But on a range of social issues, Obama is bypassing Congress and aggressively using his executive powers to make it easier for gays to marry, women to obtain birth control, and, now, young illegal immigrants to avoid deportation. It's a gamble that might fire up conservatives, many of whom remain cool to Republican Mitt Romney. Democrats think it's more likely to inspire enthusiasm among groups that were crucial to Obama's 2008 victory - young voters, women, and Hispanics.

The news that President Obama was relaxing deportation rules so many illegal immigrants who came to the country as children could stay and work should have been good news for Bryn Mawr College senior Jessica Hyejin Lee, who fills the bill exactly. But she's not ready to break out the champagne. "He already had promised a similar policy before and it just didn't do anything. Dreamers kept getting deported," Lee said, referring to undocumented youths who support the stalled national DREAM Act, which would offer a path to legal status for some two million young people.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Ana Jimenez and her husband were so terrified of being sent back to their native Mexico when Alabama's crackdown on illegal immigrants took effect that they fled more than 2,000 miles to Los Angeles, cramming into a two-bedroom apartment with more than 20 other relatives. Now they are among the families returning to cities like Birmingham; the mass deportations never materialized and courts blocked parts of the law. No one knows how many people initially left the state, so it is impossible to say how many have returned.
