Feds Now Say They Won‘t Deport Illegals Pursuing Legit ’Civil Rights Claims’

Federal immigration officials say they will not deport immigrants pursuing legitimate civil rights claims, a move hailed by advocates as a way to protect a vulnerable population while critics say it encourages abuses.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a memo Friday that “absent special circumstances,” it is against the agency’s policy to deport immigrants in the midst of a legitimate effort to protect their civil rights. ICE officials said the memos were designed to provide guidance on exercising appropriate discretion.

If they are illegal they have no legal civil rights in this country. We humanely allow them due process but that’s it. There are no rights for these illegals.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz “Republicans want to make it a crime to enter the United States illegally”

Heads-up Ms Doofus........it ALREADY IS A CRIME! I want to see this quote in ads during the election cycle. If Republicans don't use every telling statement by the Libs then I will absolutely throw in the towel. We must win in 2012! Fight them like they fight us!

It is OK for illegals to violate our civil rights.

WTF? Winning the Future, of course!

This is worse than the Mexican government telling their people how to invade and live illegally within the confines of the United States! This is the United States government telling the Mexicans how to invade and illegally live within the confines of the United States!

If this is NOT seditious and treasonous, then what in the name of the Lord IS?!?!?!?

I’m thinking that they would laugh in a persons face for pursuing a discrimination suit for whites on this Diversity-Affirmative Action policy companies have, but for this they will bow and stand at at attention.

"Legitimate", eh?

Oh, well since every illegal alien will now be filing civil rights abuse claims, every single one will have to be scrutinized for legitimacy.

Brings deportation to a screeching halt, add many more public servants to the payroll to scrutinize civil rights claims, balloons the Justice Dept's "Civil Rights" bureau, and reflects positive employment figures AKA "Creating Jobs. Jobs, Jobs, Jobs."

Left wing WIN all around.

So THIS is why Eric Holder revived the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Injustice.

Are they going to flood the courts with “civil rights” claims resulting in citizenship just in time to vote for a certain marxist dipwad come 2012?

“Federal immigration officials say they will not deport immigrants pursuing legitimate civil rights claims,”

In other words none of them will be deported any longer.

It just hit me! This is the Obama administration's answer to the state-based anti-illegal immigration laws like Arizona, Alabama, etc... Instead of suing all of these states (and losing again, and again, and again), they are telling the illegals, simply claim the arresting police officer violated your civil rights and we will not export you back to the hell hole from whence you came!

When you are turned over to the ICE, we will release you back on the very public you from which you were plucked and you will be allowed to flee to another city/town/state etc... to continue to sponge off of America!

Golly, I didn't know they had any civil rights if they were here illegally . . . what am I missing? Unborn Americans have absolutely NO CIVIL RIGHTS AT ALL, but illegal aliens do. Preposterous!

Civil Rights:

"The rights belonging to an individual by virtue of citizenship, especially the fundamental freedoms and privileges guaranteed by the 13th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and by subsequent acts of Congress, including civil liberties, due process, equal protection of the laws, and freedom from discrimination."

“ICE officials said the memos were designed to provide guidance on exercising appropriate discretion.”

Had I only known all these years that to circumvent a law I didn’t like, all I had to do was write a “policy”.

That’s it, I’ll be writing policies for the rest of the month!!!

They actually think they’re Gods.

Maybe the best counter to this kind of thing is to loudly complain that these illegals are endangering the lives of endangered species of snails and lizards, because they have a habit of cruelly and deliberately stepping on them.

Also, they kick cats and eat dogs.

Calling PETA!

Criminal aliens will be awarded all the rights of citizenship by crooked judges, many of which are on the take and enjoy bribes and benefits offered by other criminals.

I would guess a lot of illegals are going to be looking for cheap lawyers to file Civil Rights claims for them.

Another campaign issue that will need to be highlighted about 0bama. This is the kind of stuff they think the public at large will not hear about. It’s gonna take a candidate who does let the public hear about it and take it out on these punks and traitors running things now. This is 0bama destroying our nation.

BINGO! It is not likely a coincidence, since the SCOTUS has just started to rule against Holder and company. But the new policy contains lots more ways for illegals to avoid deportation, for example, this amnesty-by-fiat can be justified by whether the person is currently cooperating or has cooperated with federal, state or local law enforcement authorities, such as ICE, the U.S Attorneys or Department of Justice, the Department of Labor, or National Labor Relations Board, among others.

Wow, if they are working with the NLRB, they don't get deported. How convenient! Illegals can join unions, or form their own, to avoid deportation.

Click on the link for a LONG list of excuses for not deporting illegals.

First "Project Gunrunner," er, I mean "Fast and Furious," and now this. With "Fast and Furious," they tried to keep it secret, but they have the arrogance to create a document defining this amnesty-by-fiat protocol. Looks to me like this is their way of saying, "In your face!"

This fiat is Obama's answer to Arizona, Alabama, etc... rather than abiding by the US constitution, Obama is aiding and abetting lawbreakers, advising illegals to simply claim the arresting officer violated their "civil rights" no matter what the offense......child molesters, rapists, killers, etc, all get special rights under this insane govt fiat.

========================================

Clearly, Obama is colluding with foreign countries to undermine US national security. News reports say Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru are conspiring to collude with The Anti-Defamation League, The American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigrant rights groups to infringe on US sovereignty to make laws as we see fit. The co-conspirators filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Georgia's law and are now asking a judge to halt the measure pending the outcome of their case.

======================================

Nothing good has come from this plague of lawbreakers violating our borders. Karl Rove was WRONG----they came from hellholes whining about a "better life".....but that was a ruse. They DID NOT embrace democracy once they had a taste of it as Rove famously said. On the contrary, they are a national security threat-----and are conspiring to tear down democracy---and their home countries are helping them.

Why is it lawbreakers have all these countries.... and the US..... defending their "rights?" And not even one govt is protecting American interests?

How would they KNOW the claim is legit until AFTER it is investigated? AFTER it is investigated and found to be bogus will the feds then scoop up the illegal making the bogus claim and ship his ash back to Mexico or whichever shiite hole country he came from? I don't think so.

Right !

Could those croocks be more specific about those illegal “civil rights” ??

No of course, they can’t ! And it is obvious that this is not the true reason of that move
