Today, unilaterally, Barack Hussein Obama II, plans to give amnesty to as many as 800,000 illegal aliens who came to the USA as children. They will not be deported. They will be allowed to stay and to work in the USA.
President Obama will discuss his administration’s apparent end-run around Congress on immigration policy at 1:15 p.m. on Friday. …
Bypassing Congress, the new policy sets the following criteria for young people who came here illegally with their parents:
— Must be under age 30 and have come to the U.S. under the age of 16;
— Must have continuously lived here for at least five years
— Must be in school, or have graduated from high school, have a general education development certificate, or be honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;
— Must not have felony convictions or “a significant misdemeanor offense,” multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety;
“Only those individuals who can prove through verifiable documentation that they meet these criteria will be eligible for deferred action,” the news release said.
The new guidelines take effect immediately, and the Obama administration expects to begin taking applications within 60 days.
Thus creating yet another bureaucracy! Who said Obama doesn’t create jobs?
Rather amusing is the criterion about “verifiable documentation.” Speaking for many, I should like to see verifiable documentation for the person formulating rules that ignore the duly-elected, legal, and eligible representatives of We the People. Will this new bureaucracy accept digital images on the Internet as proof of eligibility?
The new policy will give “work permits” to the illegal aliens who benefit from the “deferred action process” (aka, AMNESTY). What is being “deferred?” Deferred implies that consequences will happen, sooner or later. Or is it citizenship that’s deferred, until Obama gets another term?
Will deferred-action-process (DAP) illegal aliens be allowed to donate to Obama’s campaign via text message? Can they use their work permits as identification to register to vote for Obama in November?
This is simply another way to gin up Obama’s base, exactly like when they play the race card.
By any means necessary. Their Alinsky, communist motto.
Obama dares the Romney campaign to speak out. Let’s hope that Romney accepts their challenge and does forcefully speak out for the rule of law and for all legal U.S. citizens and legal immigrants, especially those who will be displaced by allowing illegal aliens to take jobs that all legal persons need.
A recent news story reported that U.S. teens have great difficulty finding jobs these days because the jobs usually available to teens are currently held by older citizens who’ve lost jobs in the Obama economy. Will these citizen teens now have to also compete for jobs with 800,000 DAP illegal aliens? Seems so. That will not help them to pay off their college loans!
Who are Obama’s true constituents? He is the president of whom? US citizens or illegal aliens?
The AP states that this new policy by Obama mirrors a proposal by Senator Marco Rubio, although I seriously doubt that Rubio’s plan was to IMPOSE his plan by executive fiat.
The extraordinary step comes one week before President Barack Obama plans to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak to the group on Thursday. …
The change is likely to cause an outcry from congressional Republicans, who are sure to perceive Obama’s actions as an end run around them. Republicans already have complained that previous administration uses of prosecutorial discretion in deportations amount to back-door amnesty. Romney and many Republican lawmakers want tighter border security measures before considering changes in immigration law. Romney opposes offering legal status to illegal immigrants who attend college but has said he would do so for those who serve in the armed forces.
Most US citizens want tighter border security, as all polls show. If there were a vote today, most US citizens would oppose amnesty and any “path to citizenship” for ILLEGAL aliens.
Once again, the media and the Democrat party assume that citizens of Hispanic descent march in lockstep with progressives like Obama and don’t believe, as most other citizens do, in the rule of law or don’t similarly resent those who come here illegally to take jobs, benefits, and resources that rightfully belong to US citizens and legal immigrants. The countries of origin of these illegals in no way would consider amnesty for persons who illegally entered their countries.
Why is the United States, alone among nations, expected to ignore its own laws and give amnesty to those who flout our laws and our sovereignty?
Why is this announced today? Friday is traditionally the day for “document dumps” but one must wonder if this leak had something to do with it:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency charged with guarding the U.S. borders, has written a secret draft policy that would let its agents catch and release low-priority illegal immigrants rather than bring them in for processing and prosecution.
The policy, which has not been signed off on, would be the latest move by the Obama administration to set new priorities for the nation’s immigration services, and would bring CBP in line with other Homeland Security Department agencies that already use such “prosecutorial discretion.”
According to the memo, the draft policy “provides circumstances when to pursue enforcement actions … and includes detailed discussion of several factors CBP personnel should consider when exercising discretion.”
Opponents say it amounts to another “backdoor amnesty” for illegal immigrants and could give the administration a tool to pressure Border Patrol agents not to pursue some people.
Why exactly do we have laws?
If we are not going to enforce the laws, then why doesn’t the Obama Administration save us all money and disband the Border Patrol? The bureucracy remains; the purpose does not. Does that make sense to you?
Backdoor amnesties upon backdoor amnesties. We the People are extraneous, as are our representatives.
Time for a new regime. Time for a personnel dump in DC.
