Skip to comments.New DHS rules cancel deportations
Posted on 08/18/2011 1:39:50 PM PDT by Red Badger
The Homeland Security Department said Thursday it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria such as attending school, having family in the military or are primarily responsible for other family members care.
The move, announced in letters to Congress, comes after Hispanic activists and Democrats had urged President Obama to exempt broad swaths of illegal immigrants from deportation while Congress wrestles with the issue.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said her department and the Justice Department will review all ongoing cases and see who meets the new criteria on a case-by-case basis.
This case-by-case approach will enhance public safety, she said in the letter. Immigration judges will be able to more swiftly adjudicate high priority cases, such as those involving convicted felons.
The new rules apply to those who have been apprehended and are in deportation proceedings, but have not been officially ordered out of the country by a judge. Miss Napolitano said a working group will try to come up with guidance on how to provide for appropriate discretionary consideration for compelling cases in those instances where someone has already been ordered deported.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Will House Republicans impeach Obama? They have the majority which is all it takes to impeach him and send the case to the Senate for a trial.
there . fixed it.
Watch for “Parole in Place” to start. Within weeks they will be legalized citizens eligible to vote.
Free (read, paid for by the Taxpayer) democratic party voters!
Real Live voters, for once!
“Within weeks they will be legalized citizens eligible to vote.”
I’m aware we have heard from many legal hispanic citizens as to how they don’t want the illegals here either, but this tactic by the Democrats means something, and very possibly is based on information touting numbers of legal hispanic heritage citizens that actually would vote for Obama just to keep their illegal relatives in this country.
We have a couple of neighbors we know would.
Sounds like the Dream Act by executive fiat.
You knew it was coming.
The Pubbie's do nothing while this tyrant takes over. Seems as though he's put a spell on them.
...a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria such as attending school, having family in the military or are primarily responsible for other family members' care.Hence, the partisan media shills will keep a steady drumbeat about Republican, conservative, and Tea Party racists from now until November 2012.
this is legislation without the legislature.
This is the dream act by royal fiat.
is there anyone who has standing to sue?
Illegals are only doing the job Americans won’t (voting liberal Democrat).
You know, I was actually in favor of Obama going on a vacation because I thought he could do less harm to the country while off doing something else. Well, I was wrong. Sorry.
0h0m0 just signs what his handlers tell him to sign and reads out loud what they put in front of him.
Like I just posted on the other thread,
He is trying to force violence and/or a white riot. There is no other explanation. He has no intention of being reelected. He wants rioting, marshal law and the power it would give him to set aside this messy democracy’.
Someone better dust off the 25th Amendment and prepare to use it quick.
