Skip to comments.Dream Act: Obama passes amnesty by a back door ICE directive
Posted on 08/04/2011 10:47:10 PM PDT by ebysan
Last Friday, with no fanfare, no press coverage, and with every effort made to hide his actions from the American people, President Obama snuck through the spirit of the DREAM Act via an ICE memo.
Opposed by a majority of the American people and" twice defeated" in Congress, the DREAM Act grants amnesty to any illegal alien residing in the United States if s/he agrees to enlist in the U.S. military or enter college.
The Obama administration memo to John Morton, Director of I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) directs I.C.E. agents now to use prosecutorial discretion with regard to enforcing immigration laws. Director Morton says that Obama Administration policy directs border patrol agents not to enforce immigration laws: When ICE favorably exercises prosecutorial discretion, it essentially decides not to assert the full scope of the enforcement authority available to the agency.
You read that right. According to the Obama administration favorable enforcement means "NOT"enforcing the law!

Just recently Obamas Department of Justice (DOJ) blocked Arizona from enforcing its voter ID law.
This can not stand. Amnesty is the end of the Republic...When will someone stop this lawless administration!
Bumping in hopes that this is not true.
Under ordinary circumstances this would get Congress screaming for an impeachment. These are no ordinary times.
Google: obama passes dream act by executive order
This is disgusting!!! But it is true & “We the People” never knew about it!!
Obama belongs behind Bars!!
I’m 100% against amnesty.
I do however feel that anyone who serves honorably in the
US armed forces in a theater of war and in harms way deserves citizenship. This is NOT a form of amnesty.
No one should be allowed to remain in the US simply because they enroll in college...that’s insane.
Zero is a wanna be dictator....he is an ideological twin of Chavez.
If he loses in 2012 [prolly will], I hope the new Prez immediately goes in and signs a sh*t load of EOs revoking these INANE EOs that Obama has enacted ...
Obama and his band of thugs are fools.
Obama is just being Obama.
Where are the Republicans on this? There are dozens of ways they could stop this, and also make it an election issue.
Until they speak up and fight back, the Republicans are just as guilty on this. Sadly, the establishment Republicans are all for amnesty and cheap labor. Remember, it was Bush, McCain, Rove, et al. who were the biggest supporters of amnesty and open borders.
My mother raised me not to hate anyone. Aftern nearly forty years I can say she has failed. I hate Barack “Barry” Hussien Obama-Soetero-Dunham-Obama
“Where are the Republicans on this? There are dozens of ways they could stop this, and also make it an election issue.”
I bet that is what Obama is counting on to make it an election issue. He believes it’ll be in his favor because then all the mexicans will vote for him.
Off dreaming of the day that all of those Hispanic voters will vote for them instead of the Democrats they always vote for.
I don’t feel they need to serve in our Armed Forces.
They have already proven they have NO regard for our laws or our way of life, culture, or Constitution.
I do not want people like this picking up arms OR obtaining benefits through our military, NOR lifelong benefits of healthcare going to THEIR dependents, which will include their zillions of squatting relatives.
These people have always been here on the take. It takes SACRIFICE to be a part of our military.
I’m not against a term of military service for a shot at citizenship but I am against the college option!
I have no problem with offering citizenship to anyone who serves honorably in the military. That doesn’t include the rest of their extended family though.
Congress says no twice
Now we have a “Super Committee” that will handle the votes
If I didn’t know better I would think we have a Chairman and a Politboro.
Where are congresscritters on this? Where are voters on this?
You forgot “Steven”
The destruction of our Country continues...................
No doubt ACORN or new name counterparts will be out signing up those illegal aliens, who couldn’t get into a college, into some bogus college set up by dems.
Unless Rush picks this up, this isn’t going to see the light of media.
This is willful and malicious subversion. It is a highly impeachable offence. Boner will just get drunk with Obama, and ignore it.DeMint & Bachmann will scream to a deaf audience. The end.
“This is willful and malicious subversion. It is a highly impeachable offence.”
At the very least he should be held in contempt of Congress and it shows Obama’s contempt for American People they represent! Congress has voted this down twice!
Ditto on post no. 10
I have never hated a President before this a$$hole!
I have a better idea.
Here's one path to citizenship:
(1) Go back the country you came from, the one where you hold legal citizenship.
(2) Come back legally.
This approach has several advantages:
(1) It does not involve deception, force, trespass, or fraud, or all of the above on the part of your parents. I.e., it's lawful.
(2) It's equitable. It puts you back on the same "Square One" that every other would-be legal immigrant starts out on: in the country of origin.
(3) It brings families together. In Lindo Michoacan.
(4) It highlights the option of either staying in the country of origin, where --- for example, in Mexico--- the unemployment rate is 4.9%, or taking the lawful steps to come back to the USA (where the unemployment rate is 9.4%)
(5) You'll feel a lot better about yourself, since you'll be playing by the rules.
And I won't even ask for a consultant fee.
