JW Sues DHS Twice! for Records Detailing Obama Stealth Amnesty Plan
The President was on record earlier this week saying he has no plan to suspend deportations for illegal aliens. The evidence, however, suggests otherwise. So Judicial Watch is going to court again to try to force the truth out of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
This week we filed two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the DHS to obtain records detailing the Obama administrations alleged plan to grant legal status to illegal aliens without going through Congress, a strategy commonly known as stealth amnesty.
On July 2, 2010, Judicial Watch sent a FOIA request to the DHS to obtain the following information: Any and all records of communications between the Department of Homeland Security and any of the following entities, concerning deferred action or parole to suspend removal proceedings against a particular individual or group of individuals for a specific timeframe; as well as records of communications concerning selective reprieve to the segment of the population holding expired visas: The White House; The Executive Office of the President; any third parties. Were also after internal DHS communications regarding deferred action or parole.
Then on August 30, 2010, Judicial Watch followed up with yet another FOIA request to DHS looking for the following information: Any and all records of, and/or records concerning, Department of Homeland Security briefings regarding a systematic review of pending immigration cases against suspected illegal immigrants in Houston, Texas. Any and all records of general guidelines issued to Department of Homeland Security attorneys, allowing dismissal of pending immigration cases. Any and all records detailing the determination and implementation of a systematic review of pending immigration cases against suspected illegal immigrants in Houston, Texas. Any and all correspondence with non-governmental organizations concerning the process for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to give consideration of possible dismissal of pending immigration cases.
The DHS acknowledged receipt of our FOIA requests. However, to date the agency has failed to provide a single document. The agency has also failed to indicate when a response will be forthcoming. In both cases the statutory allotted timeframe for response has long since passed, which is why we sued. (Of course this is unsurprising. Reporting by The Associated Press suggests that the DHSs political appointees have improperly delayed FOIA requests on politically sensitive topics. And this week Rep. Darrell Issas (R-CA) House Government and Reform Committee released a devastating report detailing this lawlessness.)
So what is this illegal alien deportation scandal all about?
As you know if youve been reading this space for some time, the Obama administration has been heavily criticized for its alleged plan to bypass Congress and enact stealth amnesty by executive fiat. In fact, in June 2010, the press uncovered a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service draft memo that outlined a variety of ways to grant legalization to illegal aliens without going through Congress. A couple of months later we learned this stealth amnesty plan was not a theoretical exercise. It was already in full operation.
The Obamanation of America’s desolation does indeed lend creedance to the adage of one who speaks out of both sides of his mouth, the old split tongue the indians complained about. His plans will land him in the hell with those who hate the God of Israel, His Christ and his fellowman. The Obamanation is indeed a traitor of the worst sort, truth be told.
Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and sent to a SuperMax for the rest of his miserable life.
So much for the most transparent administration in history
This presidency is far overreaching in its imperialism:
Chicago sewer rat...
I like that!
How many freepers are aware that 95% of “deportations” that Nappy Napolitano brags about are Mexicans who are arrested at the border and transported back to Mexico where they can try again?
Only 5% or so are real deportations. Meaning deportations from the interior United States such as an illegals arrested in Chicago and NYC and deported
What do you have against our sewer rats?
