Thanks to the election of Barack Obama, parasites and criminals now feel empowered to demand freebies. With Obama’s illegal open border/stop deportation policies, US taxpayers will have 12 million more parasites to pay for. This only happens in America. No other countries allow criminals to openly live and mooch off their citizenry.

Obama and his administration hate to enforce US immigration laws and are setting criminal illegal immigrants back onto the streets to commit more criminal acts while blaming sequestration cuts that Obama approved.
WASHINGTON — The federal government released groups of illegal immigrants from custody across the country Monday at the same time the White House was making its case that impending budget cuts would harm efforts to protect the border and enforce federal immigration laws.
Advocates reported “waves” of illegal immigrants being released from at least three detention centers in Texas, Florida and Louisiana.
U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement confirmed the release of some illegal immigrants Monday night but would not say how many or from which detention centers.
“In order to make the best use of our limited detention resources in the current fiscal climate and to manage our detention population under current congressionally mandated levels, ICE has directed field offices to review the detained population to ensure it is in line with available funding,” said ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen. “As a result of this review, a number of detained aliens have been released around the country and placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release.”
Christensen said ICE is continuing to prosecute their cases in immigration court and will seek their removal from the country.
“We’re getting reports from multiple detention centers in Texas, Florida and New Orleans where detainees who are low priority are being released in mass without bond,” Domenic Powell, a spokesman for the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, an immigration advocacy group, said Monday night.
Federal Judge Rules in Favor of ICE Agents Suing Over Obama’s DREAM Directive (Deferred Action on Deportation)

Team Obama in court for not enforcing federal immigration laws by stopping ICE agents from deporting criminals who violate federal immigration laws.
From Dallas Morning News:
A federal judge in Dallas has granted a hearing on an injunction to stop deportation suspensions under an initiative of the Obama administration for certain illegal immigrants between the ages of 16 and 31 years of age.
Plaintiffs, arguing the policy is illegal, include David A. Engle, a Dallas deportation officer with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other ICE agents in Texas and other states. The defendants are suing their boss, Janet Napolitano, the head of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
A hearing date has yet to be set.
The Obama initiative was announced June 15, 2012 as a form of “prosecutorial discretion” that didn’t need legislation from Congress. Already about 154,000 immigrants have been granted approvals, that include processing for a two-year work permit. The program doesn’t provide legal immigration status such as a green card.
In his opinion Judge Reed O’Connor said “the potential disciplinary action that results from failing to comply ” constitutes a “sufficient injury-in-fact.”
Guess most Americans are right-wingers and idiots since the majority believe in protecting our southern border.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: People that believe in border protection, who believe you can stop somebody from coming into this country by higher towers, or more drones, or more people working there, I think are right-wingers or idiots. If you want to work and you’re looking for a job, you’re going to come to America, Congresswoman. You’re going to come in here and you’re going to find a way in, whether you have to take a boat, an airplane, or swim. Whatever you have to do, you’re going to get here.
Illegal immigrants are coming via airplane? Whose an idiot again Chrissy?
And my question is, are we going to have a work permit situation that’s truly enforced so they’ll be no incentive to do that? Because you can’t work in the United States unless you’re here legally. If we ever have a system like that, we won’t be having this debate in 20 or 30 years from now all over again. (Hardball, January 28, 2013)
12 million plus illegal immigrants disagree. Most work illegally using fraudulent social security numbers or under the table.

Didn’t know the US had an immigration problem? I know we have an illegal immigration problem.
A powerful group of senators from both parties has reached a deal on the outlines of a comprehensive immigration overhaul, a development that will drive an emotional debate on a hot-button issue unseen in Washington for more than half a decade.
The group is expected to unveil the basics of its proposal at a Monday news conference on Capitol Hill, essentially laying down a marker on the issue one day before President Barack Obama heads to Las Vegas to unveil more details about his own immigration proposal.
According to a five-page document provided to POLITICO, the sweeping proposal — agreed to in principle by eight senators — would seek to overhaul the legal immigration system as well as create a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s roughly 11 million illegal immigrants. But establishing that pathway would depend on whether the U.S. first implements stricter border enforcement measures and new rules ensuring immigrants have left the country in compliance with their visas. Young people brought to the country as children illegally and seasonal agriculture industry workers would be given a faster path to citizenship.
The broad agreement by the influential Gang of Eight senators amounts to the most serious bipartisan effort to act on the highly charged issue since George W. Bush’s comprehensive measure was defeated in the Senate in 2007.
It remains to be seen if Obama will embrace the Senate effort, or how closely his own proposal hews to the Senate one. But the Senate proposal is expected to take precedence on Capitol Hill, given that bipartisan backing will be crucial to getting anything through the Democratic-controlled Senate — let alone the Republican-controlled House.
The bipartisan coalition includes influential Democrats such as Majority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois and Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the No. 3 in the leadership. It also has the backing of Sen. Bob Menendez, the Cuban-American Democrat from New Jersey poised to be chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. And it has the support of Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, the new chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The same Bob Menendez who had the illegal immigrant sex offender working for him and who the FBI is investigating for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes.
Republican heavy-hitters also have signed onto the deal’s framework, including two veterans of the bruising 2007 effort: Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. But it also won the support of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising GOP star and possible future presidential candidate. And the freshman Arizona Republican, Jeff Flake, who endorsed similar comprehensive plans during his House tenure, has also backed the proposal.
(CNSNews.com) – Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Monday, said the federal government should stop deporting “non-serious criminal” aliens as a means of making the nation safer.
“It is time to put an end to the practice of deporting non-serious criminals,” said Villaraigosa. “Our neighborhoods will be safer and our families will be more secure.
“Now this is an ambitious agenda,” he said. “But immigration reform cannot wait another political season. Already we’re hearing the voices of those who did not learn the lessons of November or who have chosen to ignore them. This isn’t the right year, they say. The agenda is too crowded, they caution.
Wanna-be Dictator Obama Uses Executive Order to Grant Backdoor Amnesty to 1 Million Illegal Immigrants
Posted in Political Issues, tagged American spouse, Backdoor Amnesty, Department of Homeland Security, dictatorship, executive order, Illegal immigration, President Obama, Visa on January 3, 2013 | Leave a Comment »
Just another executive order that ignores US laws and usurps Congress. The dictatorship is slowly taking root.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration eased the way Wednesday for illegal immigrants who are immediate relatives of American citizens to apply for permanent residency, a change that could affect as many as 1 million of the estimated 11 million immigrants unlawfully in the U.S.
A new rule issued by the Department of Homeland Securityaims to reduce the time illegal immigrants are separated from their American families while seeking legal status, immigration officials said.
Beginning March 4, when the changes go into effect, illegal immigrants who can demonstrate that time apart from an American spouse, child or parent would create “extreme hardship,” can start the application process for a legal visa without leaving the U.S.
Once approved, applicants would be required to leave the U.S. briefly in order to return to their native country and pick up their visa.
The change is the latest move by the administration to use its executive powers to revise immigration procedures withoutCongress passing a law. In August, the Obama administration launched a program to halt the deportation of young people brought to the U.S. unlawfully as children.
Must stop the deportation of undocumented Democrats no matter how dangerous they are to American society.
RALEIGH — Federal officials are scaling back a program that enlists the aid of local police and sheriff’s offices to identify people who are in the country illegally, in favor of a national program that uses fingerprints collected by the FBI.
U.S. Immigrations Customs and Enforcement officials say the so-called 287(g) program that includes Wake County will continue at least until the end of the year. But ICE says the program is under review, and that it will no longer train local police under the program or give them the authority to question, investigate and arrest people they suspect are in the country illegally.
The change moves the government away from an approach to immigration enforcement that has been popular among some law enforcement agencies but has drawn fire from civil rights groups, who say it encourages local police and sheriff’s deputies to unfairly target Latinos. The Department of Homeland Security is still reviewing 57 complaints against the Wake County program, and ICE suspended its 287(g) agreement with the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office after the U.S. Justice Department found deputies there were exceeding their authority by checking the immigration status of Latinos on the street.
…Secure Communities allows federal officers to detect illegal immigrants by comparing the fingerprints of those arrested by local police, which are routinely shared with the FBI, with prints in immigration databases. ICE says the system is simply a smarter way to do business.
“The Secure Communities screening process, coupled with federal officers, is more consistent, efficient and cost-effective in identifying and removing criminal and other priority aliens,” said Vincent Picard, a spokesman with ICE’s southern region in Atlanta.
Evolution of the program
Secure Communities has its roots in the Criminal Alien Program, a federal initiative enacted nearly three decades ago to identify people behind bars who were in the country illegally. That program was replaced after the 9/11 terrorist attacks by 287(g), said Paromita Shah, associate director of the lawyers guild’s National Immigration Project.
Shah said the fingerprint identification system can sift through lots of data in a short period of time, but that poses a problem: It has a 5 percent margin of error that results in some U.S. citizens being among the 30,000 people being held each day in 400 federally authorized jails across the country on immigration charges, she said.
“Secure Communities is the Criminal Alien Program on steroids,” Shah said.
But others say Secure Communities is an improvement over 287(g) and its reliance on local law enforcement officers.
David Blair, spokesman for the watchdog group Fairness Alamance in Burlington, says he knows some Latino advocates vigorously oppose Secure Communities, but he prefers a wait-and-see attitude.
“What’s good about Secure Communities is that it focuses on the removal of criminals out of the country, people who are guilty of felonies and other serious crimes,” said Blair, an advertising executive. “It is under the control of the federal government, which has a greater respect for civil rights law and constitutional protection.”
Under the 287(g) program, the federal government empowered local law enforcement agencies to enforce immigration law in one of two ways. The one scheduled for elimination next year allowed local officers, trained by ICE, to question and investigate the immigration status of someone before arrest.
The other agreement, used by Wake and Alamance counties, allowed local officers to check someone’s immigration status only after he or she had been brought to the jail on some other criminal charge.
Thanks to Obama’s executive order, illegal immigrants are able to duck US immigration laws. The result is criminals get to stay inside our borders to commit more crime. The ICE Union is speaking out against Obama’s illegal act. The union head is pointing out the secret changes, order by Team Obama, that violates immigration laws and the rules of Obama’s own executive order.
The Union says just as concerning is the way policies are implemented at ICE. Agents claim that under Director John Morton the agency always presents written policies for public consumption, but then makes “secret changes” to the policies which ICE refuses to put in writing. ICE knows the policy changes will create a political outcry, or could place the public or ICE officers at risk. “Our officers are already under orders not to make arrests or even talk to foreign nationals in most cases unless another agency has already arrested them; you won’t find that written in any public ICE policy.”
Eric Holder unavailabel for comment. Didn’t the Obama regime say the reason they sued Arizona was due to them not wanting a “patchwork” of different immigration laws? Team Obama sues those who want to protect Americans from a criminal invasion that burdens the criminal, education and health care system, yet refuse to sue those who protect illegal immigrants inside their sanctuary cities.
Washington, D.C. has become the latest in a growing number of mostly liberal states and localities that is ignoring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), when ICE asks these states and localities to hold suspected criminal illegal aliens for ICE to pick up.
Last month, Washington, D.C. passed an ordinance stating that it would no longer cooperate with ICE detainers for most suspected criminal illegal aliens. ICE detainers are holds, up to two business days, that ICE puts on municipal prisoners that it wants to pick up because ICE suspects these prisoners are also in the country illegally.
Normally, when ICE places a detainer on a municipal prisoner, those prisoners that would finish a sentence, be it because they made bail or finished their prison sentences, would still be held in order for ICE to pick them up. In Washington, D.C., local officials will ignore ICE detainers for all suspected criminal illegal aliens except those that have committed “dangerous crimes.”
Washington, D.C.’s city council passed this ordinance in response to the ICE program, Secure Communities, coming into effect in their jurisdiction. Secure Communities is an ICE data sharing program that gives ICE fingertip access to the personal information of all individuals detained in the jails of localities that cooperate.
