The backdoor amnesty plan put for by Obama and the DHS is in full effect. This is being carried out by their non-enforcement of our country’s immigration laws and just in time for the 2o12 elections.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Many illegal immigrants who were facing deportation despite having no criminal record will be allowed to stay in the country and apply for a work permit under new rules from the Homeland Security Department. Republicans are balking at the change.
Most people thought that being illegally within our borders was a crime. Not according to Obama’s DHS. They reward criminals with work permits.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Thursday that the department will focus on deporting illegal immigrants who are criminals or pose a threat to national security or public safety.
Hello. Illegal immigrants are CRIMINALS.
Napolitano announced the plan in a letter to a group of senators who support revamping the immigration system. Under the change, approximately 300,000 deportation cases pending in immigration court will be reviewed case by case.
There’s an extra 300,000 parasites for the American taxpayer to support.
“From a law enforcement and public safety perspective, DHS enforcement resources must continue to be focused on our highest priorities,” Napolitano wrote in the letter. “Doing otherwise hinders our public safety mission — clogging immigration court dockets and diverting DHS enforcement resources away from individuals who pose a threat to public safety.”
What does this idiot think the immigration courts do? They deport people that broke our country’s immigration laws and are here ILLEGALLY.
The decision comes amid continued protests from immigrant communities and others that the administration has been too focused on deporting people whose only offense is being in the country without the proper documents or who have been arrested for traffic violations or other misdemeanors. There have also been widespread complaints about Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Secure Communities program, which uses fingerprints collected in state and local jails to identify illegal immigrants in a federal immigration database.
All law enforcement agencies use fingerprints to identify criminals. I guess only American criminals deserve to have their fingerprints ran?
States have balked at the program, arguing it requires them to enforce federal laws. There have also been complaints that immigrants arrested for simple misdemeanors can end up in deportation proceedings.
Maybe the DOJ will sue themselves for putting together a patchwork of immigration laws. The reason they sued Arizona and Alabama was due to the claim that they didn’t want a patchwork of immigration laws.
ICE Director John Morton responded to some critics in June with a six-page memo to ICE agents outlining when and how discretion should be used. That guidance covered those potentially subject to a legislative proposal, known as the DREAM Act, intended to give young illegal immigrants who go to college or serve in the military a chance at legal status.
The DREAM Act was never passed or signed into law. Wonder what the US Constitution says ‘we the people’ should do when our government refuses to enforce laws. Morton is the same Obama appointee that receive a “vote of no confidence” from the ICE union.
Morton also suggested that agents consider how long someone has been in the United States, whether immediate family members are U.S. citizens and whether that person has a criminal record.
Do American criminals get such treatment? I’m pretty sure they’ve been in the U.S. for an extended period of time and also have family members who are U.S. citizens. Maybe we should treat them like illegal immigrants and let them all run free to leech of the American taxpayers.
Napolitano said in her letter that the policy change was part of implementing that prosecutorial discretion.
Translation: Let the illegal immigrants be free so they can vote in 2012.
