Skip to comments.Obama Amnesty Begins for Millions of Illegal Aliens: Work Permits, No Safeguards Against Fraud

Obama's lawless bypass of Congress in granting blanket amnesty to millions of illegal aliens began this morning across America.
Tens of thousands of illegals lined up early, and flooded into DHS centers to apply for nearly automatic 2-year stays from deportation and work permits, with far looser provisions and requirements than were ever imagined in any version of the 3-times defeated 'Dream Act' in Congress.
Thanks to Obama's decree on June 15th, blanket amnesty for illegal aliens under 30 begins today as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) begins accepting applications for deferred action and work authorization.
To soften the public relations blow, the White House estimated that about "only 800,000" illegal aliens would be covered under this amnesty, when Obama issued his edict - a complete fiction that he knew the media would not challenge. However, the figure was disputed by the Pew Hispanic Center, which estimated about 1.4 million beneficiaries. Then last week, the pro-amnesty Migration Policy Institute estimated that 1.76 million illegal aliens will be eligible.
In reality, the numbers will be higher - FAR higher. Why? Because, as House Judiciary chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told DHS Secretary Napolitano in an August 13th letter, there are no mechanisms in place to detect, deter, or to punish fraud.
NONE. Nothing to stop illegals who either fall slightly outside the criteria, or far beyond its provisions to submit fraudulent documents and gain an automatic 2-year stay from deportation, and no consequences if they do. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) does not even require original or certified documents to be submitted - opening up a Pandora's box of potential fraud from a group of individuals accustomed to a lifetime of employment and Social Security fraud, tax evasion and identity theft.
What is to stop 2 million new border crossers tomorrow from applying for and receiving this amnesty? Absolutely nothing.
So why are there zero safeguards against fraud in this process? As FAIR's Ira Mehlman pointed out:
The lack of fraud control is not an accident; it is by design. According to the letter, DHS officials have confirmed that the Department will not use fraud prevention or detection methods that are too expensive, time consuming, or which would unduly impact the expedited processing of applications...In plain English - because they don't want to reject any of these applicants. This is a political act. The provisions and requirements are absurd and completely for show. You can read yourself the new, so-called "guidelines" published just two days ago by the USCIS. In it one discovers that the path to amnesty is easily available for illegals aliens under the following circumstances:

This is a foreign invasion. And Obama is on the side of the invaders!
Honorable mention goes to LBJ, FDR and Woodrow Wilson.
What's a few hundred thousand more?
How do we contact Boehner about this?? The gutless GOP is on vacation and has done NOTHING to stop this! It’s outrageous. I’m so sick of these people.
Obama looks more like Hugo Chavez every day
Impoverish the country. As poverty increases, turn-up the rhetoric of class-against-class and race-against-race. Use Gov’t power to give more support to those media outlets, entities and corporations that support you - and use them to attack the opposition.
Make the poor dependent on the Gov’t and one’s political party, and use agitation and intimidation when necessary.
