DHS Stealth Amnesty Cover Up Exposed
Judicial Watch ^ | June 27, 2011

Posted on 06/27/2011 9:57:06 AM PDT by jazusamo

Officials at the Department of Homeland Security lied to Congress and the media to cover up a secret amnesty program that dismissed the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.

The scandalous story of how the government agency charged with keeping America safe systematically cancels pending deportations was first reported by Texas’s largest newspaper last year. The remarkable program stunned the legal profession and baffled immigration attorneys who say the government bounced their clients’ deportation even when expulsion was virtually guaranteed.

After the story broke other media outlets began to dig around and Senate leaders launched an investigation into the stealth amnesty program that led to a 40% increase in the dismissal of deportations last year. Homeland Security officials denied it existed and scrambled to conceal details, according to new information revealed by the newspaper that originally cracked the story.

Internal Homeland Security documents obtained under public records laws prove that agency officials destroyed internal memos of the secretive process and lied to cover up the wrongdoing. Through a spokesman, one Texas Senator involved in the probe confirmed that DHS misled the public and Congress about its policy of directing dismissals of cases against criminal aliens.

Some of the records are heavily redacted, but it’s clear that illegal immigrants with criminal records were spared removal under the program, which was administered by high-ranking officials and attorneys at DHS.

In one internal email, a chief council at one agency branch blames the media for falling behind on the number of deportations his office discharged. "The problem is every time I'm about to wield a blunt instrument to our docket, some case shows up in the press that gives me pause," he writes in an internal electronic mail.

The same chief council also praises his counterpart in another busy immigration office—in Miami Florida—for leading the way on dismissals of deportations and lamenting that his office had “fallen way behind.”

Judicial Watch has also investigated this deplorable back-door amnesty program and earlier this year sued DHS to obtain information because the agency has ignored a federal public records request that dates back to July 2010.

Very true. He’s bound and determined to have amnesty and open boarders no matter how he manages to get it.

He’s good at skirting laws and down right ignoring them, his impeachment is long overdue.

An appropriate headline from last year (Aug 2010) would have been, DHS Murders Nun in Northern Virginia

MSNBC reported: U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano called the crash a "terrible thing" when asked about the incident during an unrelated news conference at D.C. police headquarters Tuesday. Napolitano said she immediately asked officials to look into the situation. "This is a horrible case," said Napolitano, whose department includes ICE. "Why is it that this individual was still out driving? He was in removal proceedings. Why were the removal proceedings taking so long?"

My comment: That rug must be getting mighty lumpy with all the dirt under which is being sweeped.

Excellent and most appropriate post.

Very sad and she could very possibly be alive today had Zer0, Nappy and their underlings been enforcing existing law.

So what? There is already a barn full of illegality; enough to put 90% of Washington in the fryer. Who’s going to begin the process? Who’s going to present the case, try the case, convict the guilty, implement the punishment? The hen house has no hens, only foxes. The whold damned country has become so governmentally corrupt, one wonders if the other side might be less corrupt. It’s the result of the ostrich approach; stick your head in the sand and pretend it ain’t there.

And the immigration lawyers are lovin’ it.

They promise their clients that they are working hard to keep them from being deported - they just need another $4000.00 to keep fighting to keep them in the country.

The courts and the congress have turned their backs on the American people.

The solution to our problems will only occur when we elect a chief executive who will do what has to be done and that is to declare that the Obama administration was criminal and that O was never eligible to be president.

Then announce that all the bills signed by O are not law, that all appointments including judicial were not legal, and close the government until a review of all agencies can be completed to determine what is legal and what is not.

At the same time, bring charges of conspiracy and fraud under Rico against O, the dem party, the unions and the msm.

Article IV, Section 4:

This is getting all the way to third base with "impeachable."

NO cheers, unfortunately.

That’s a very good article and probably worthy of a separate thread, you might consider it.

Homeland Security. We failed to verify which homeland they were securing because it certainly isn’t America.

Hmmmm....is this an impeachable offense? Obama is skirting Congress in just about every single executive branch....making de facto laws through memorandum and executive order.

IMPEACH!! (grin)

So it turns out that Homeland Security wasn't doing their job of deporting criminal aliens. Not only that, but when Arizona passed a state law to try to help them out, the Obomatons had the gall to sue them!

The 'Rat strategy with regard to illegal immigration is clear: keep the illegal immigrants in the country, then fast track them to amnesty, citizenship, and voting for them. Ah, come to think of it, what difference does it make to the Dems if they're citizens, as long as their "right" to vote isn't denied by the "racist" GOP?

Just read they lied and made up a report for Congress to help get gays in the military and end don't ask don't tell

they lied and fudged a report about risks of oil drilling in the Gulf

they lied about the stimulus plan and shovel ready projects

they lied about war in Libya

they lied about Obamacare saving money

TSA is not forthcoming with reports of possible health risks risks of scanners and radiation

....They pretty much do what they want, hate to think about what other other actions and damage they are doing, including the State Department.
