U.S. To Suspend Countless Deportations
Judicial Watch ^ | June 21, 2011

Posted on 06/21/2011 1:45:38 PM PDT by jazusamo

In a first for any administration, President Obama has implemented a new system to spare a myriad of illegal immigrants from removal by authorizing—and encouraging—low-level field officers to block deportations by using an outrageously broad list of exemptions.

The unprecedented program will allow droves of undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. by drastically expanding factors that can be considered to exercise “prosecutorial discretion.” That’s when agencies get to decide to what degree they enforce certain laws against particular individuals.

Beginning this week, federal immigration officers, attorneys and other officials can cancel the removal of an illegal immigrant that is breast feeding or pregnant, has pursued an education in the U.S., has a relative in the military, has ties and contributions to the community or a U.S.-born child (anchor baby), to name a few. A “person’s length of presence in the U.S.” will also strengthen their case to stay.

The new prosecutorial discretion guidelines are outlined in a memo issued a few days ago by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton. For the first time ever, employees from field agents to senior officials are empowered to apply the ridiculously broad criteria to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation.

Morton encourages ICE officers, agents and attorneys to quickly consider prosecutorial discretion for illegal immigrants who meet the new benchmarks instead of waiting for their advocate or counsel to “request a favorable exercise of discretion." He claims in the memo that this will “preserve government resources.”

Clearly, this is the Obama Administration’s latest effort to fulfill a secret amnesty plan in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to legalize the nation’s 12 million undocumented immigrants. Earlier this year political appointees at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), issued a directive to enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action.”

That plan includes delaying deportation indefinitely (“deferred action”), granting green cards, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. indefinitely while they seek legal status (known as “parole in place”) and expanding the definition of “extreme hardships” so any illegal alien could meet the criteria and remain in the country.

Judicial Watch has sued the Department of Homeland Security to obtain records detailing the stealth amnesty plan because the agency has ignored a federal public records request that dates back to July 2010.

Why not just bribe the immigration officials?

Hell, if they’re gonna ignore the law, then why not just take a bribe from Pedro and look the other way?

How is that any different than these new Obama policies?

Hmmm. Is this so the illegals "qualify" under the "new" rules? And be able to stay in the USofA - after their "service"- to collect their "entitlements"?

Pathetic.

The memo clearly encompasses the bulk of all illegal aliens.

“whether the person, or the person’s immediate relative, has served in the U.S. military,

reserves, or national guard, with particular consideration given to those who served in combat;

the person’s ties and contributions to the community, including family relationships;

the person’s age, with particular consideration given to minors and the elderly;

whether the person is the primary caretaker of a person with a mental or physical disability, minor, or seriously ill relative; (does NOT have to be a relative!)

whether the person or the person’s spouse is pregnant or nursing; (does NOT have to be an anchor baby!)

whether the person or the person’s spouse suffers from severe mental or physical illness; ( ????? this can be a “doctors note?)

I was reading about this.

Will this be Obama's "Iran Moment?" Is he doing this as a show of force? If this goes horribly wrong, which I think it will, Obama may have just completely destroyed his chances of re-election or is positioning troops around Israel for some sort of faux-attempt at a military resolution to the Palestinian issue du jour?

Destroy the God-loving, American boys and girls while letting more voters in the back door to continue this three-ring-circus.

May you live during interesting times.

Just for fun lets see what “Holders People” now can ignore “at their discretion.”

In the civil immigration enforcement context, the term “prosecutorial discretion” applies to a broad range of discretionary enforcement decisions, including but not limited to the following:

• deciding to issue or cancel a notice of detainer;

• deciding to issue, reissue, serve, file, or cancel a Notice to Appear (NTA);

• focusing enforcement resources on particular administrative violations or conduct;

• deciding whom to stop, question, or arrest for an administrative violation;

• deciding whom to detain or to release on bond, supervision, personal recognizance, or other condition;

• seeking expedited removal or other forms of removal by means other than a formal removal proceeding in immigration court;

• settling or dismissing a proceeding;

• granting deferred action, granting parole, or staying a final order of removal;

• agreeing to voluntary departure, the withdrawal of an application for admission, or other action in lieu of obtaining a formal order of removal;

• pursuing an appeal;

• executing a removal order; and

• responding to or joining in a motion to reopen removal proceedings and to consider joining in a motion to grant relief or a benefit.

All with a MEMO?

At their discretion...

Little O’Bammy straight-faced told Congress he does not have to obey the War Powers Act, threatened Texas with a NO-FLY Zone edict, (Really bammy? A “no-fly” zone over the entire state?) ignored Congressional Subpoenas from the Fast & Furious Congressional Investigation and amnested 30 million criminal illegal aliens with a damn MEMO, all in the past three to four weeks.

I can only conclude that the little prick is 100% nuts, will claim he can do anything he wants and American Citizens that demand the current administration actually obey the law can go to hell.

And what will the communist-in-Chief do when the election rolls around and the donks/commies and Acorn are bulking up the voter registrations?

I can hear the bull$hi+ now…

“well, they are going to be here from now on, they should have a say in the elections.”

And that will be it.

when governments decide which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore, citizens should be free to decide which laws to obey and which to ignore.

Yep. With something like 44% of the u.S. voters saying he is doing ok in the leadership dept. I can see how he believes that.

And such believing, combined with impending elections leads to over-reaching.

The more he over-reaches, the more the other 56% come to understand what he really is.

Unemployment.
Crushing debt.
Loss of standing in the world.
Loss of the future for our kids.

A real piece of work, little Ø'Bammy.

His Irish roots have root-rot.

Picture applying this logic to other unlawful acts, say, auto theft.

- If the person has been driving your stolen vehicle to school for the past six months, then they should be allowed to keep your vehicle. Even issue them a 'student registration'! They can drop it off at your house when it needs maintenance!

- If the person driving your stolen vehicle is pregnant, then they get to keep you vehicle until the baby is born, or graduates from high school, or whatever!

- If the person driving your stolen vehicle has a relative in the same household that legally owns their own vehicle, then the thief gets to keep your vehicle.

These things are a reasonable as what our government is doing with illegal aliens!

Do any of the GOP POTUS candidates care about this amnesty by fiat? I'll take a wild guess and say "damned few." I don't think they want GOP primary voters to know too much about what they really would do about illegals (if anything).

Secure Communities = Open Borders

ICE has shifted its duties from Federal Immigration Law Enforcement to state and local criminal law enforcement.

ICE has no business in local criminal law enforcement. The ONLY time ICE has business in local law enforcement is WHEN they are informed because it involves illegal aliens.

With the implementation of the "Secure Communities" program ICE has effectively left the borders open by concentrating limited resources on areas outside its duties and as well ICE is effectively tying the hands of and preventing state and local law enforcement from enforcing immigration laws.
