In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them unlawful presence waivers.
The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in todays Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant unlawful presence waivers to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative thats a U.S. citizen.
Currently such aliens must return to their native country and request a waiver of inadmissibility in an existing overseas immigrant visa process. In other words, they must enter the U.S. legally as thousands of foreigners do on a yearly basis. Besides the obvious security issues, changing this would be like rewarding bad behavior in a child. It doesnt make sense.
But the system often causes U.S. citizens to be separated for extended periods from their immediate relatives, according to the DHS. The proposed changes, first announced in January, will significantly reduce the length of time U.S. citizens are separated from their loved ones while required to remain outside the United States during the current visa processing system.
The administration also claims that relaxing the rule will also create efficiencies for both the U.S. government and most applicants. How exactly is not listed in the Federal Register announcement, which gives the public 60 days to comment. Thats only a formality since the DHS has indicated that the change is pretty much a done deal.
This appears to be part of the Obama Administrations bigger plan to blow off Congress by using its executive powers to grant illegal immigrants backdoor amnesty. The plan has been in the works for years and in 2010 Texass largest newspaper published an exposé about a then-secret DHS initiative that systematically cancelled pending deportations. The remarkable program stunned the legal profession and baffled immigration attorneys who said the government bounced their clients deportation even when expulsion was virtually guaranteed.
In late 2011 a mainstream newspaper obtained internal Homeland Security documents outlining sweeping changes in immigration enforcement that halt the deportation of illegal aliens with no criminal records. This also includes a nationwide training program to assure that enforcement agents and prosecuting attorneys dont remove illegal immigrants who havent been convicted of crimes.
Judicial Watch has been a front runner in investigating the Obama Administrations stealth amnesty program by pursuing DHS records concerning deferred action or parole to suspend removal proceedings against a particular group of individuals. Last spring JW sued DHS to obtain information because the agency ignored a federal public records request that dates back to July 2010.
so in addition to the current in-house crop of illegals, we now have to worry about those who are a result of ‘delivery tourism’, born ‘citizens’, who can now legally emigrate to the USA under said waiver system along with mommyanddaddy and grandpa and uncles?
no AA for illegal waiver holders - or do they get to go to the head of that line, too?
and where are our congresscritters on the constitutionality of said ‘waiver’ ?
Can I just get me a break-any-law-at-all waiver?
Is this legalizing the presence of anchor baby parents?
Only an evil government would even suggest this.
And what happens if just one of these “undocumented” people receives this “waiver” and turns out to be a terrorist who blows up a few thousand people? Will the head of the DHS be prosecuted? Will Zero be impeached? Or will the “news” media cover it all up to protect their boy king?
so, those 450 million .40 caliber hollow point rounds won’t be used against these people!
Now, if he will start issuing “unlawful tax evasion waivers” to those of us who belong here, we might be on to something. More likely to just extend the “unlawful race-baiting/incenting violence waivers” to his and Holder’s bros.
Just as I suspected. That story last week about how Urkel rounded up and deported 31,000 illegals was a crock of Wasserman-Schultz.
