Complete title: JW Uncovers Documents from DHS Detailing Obama Plan to Impose DREAM Act by Suspending Illegal Alien Deportations

Records Show Obama Administration Began to Implement Provisions of the DREAM Act Rejected by Congress; DHS Official: “And we wonder why ppl [people] FOIA us.”

Washington, DC -- September 1, 2011

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detailing behind-the-scenes efforts by the Obama administration to bypass Congress and grant amnesty at least one million illegal aliens by suspending immigration deportation proceedings against “DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act kids” and other illegal aliens. The records include internal DHS strategic documents, as well as extensive email communications within the DHS and with the Obama White House. The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch as a result of two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits filed on March 29, 2011.

The records include emails from press outlets investigating the Obama administration’s efforts to suspend the deportations of students who would be covered under The DREAM Act, which was under consideration by Congress. The DREAM Act would have permitted certain immigrant students who have grown up in the U.S. to apply for temporary legal status, eventually obtain permanent legal status, and become eligible for U.S. citizenship if they go to college or serve in the U.S. military. The DREAM Act has failed repeatedly to pass Congress. The DREAM Act initially could provide amnesty for over one million illegal immigrants and would have cost over $6 billion a year.

Highlights from the newly disclosed documents include the following:

The Obama administration’s campaign to suspend the deportations of illegal aliens has been subject to intense scrutiny since 2010, when the press uncovered a USCIS memo that contemplated various “administrative alternatives” to bypass Congress and implement stealth amnesty for illegal aliens. A subsequent Houston Chronicle story exposed an effort by the administration to suspend the deportations of illegal aliens who supposedly have not been convicted of any “serious” crimes. Documents uncovered by Judicial Watch show that DHS officials misled Congress and the public about the scope of the immigration enforcement policy change, which gave wide latitude to local immigration officials to dismiss illegal alien deportation cases – including the dismissal of charges against illegal alien criminals convicted of violent crimes. The Obama administration announced last week that it would effectively halt any enforcement actions (on an alleged “case-by-case” basis) against any illegal alien who hasn’t committed any other serious crimes. The administration denied that this was a blanket or categorical amnesty, but these new documents show otherwise.

“These documents show the Obama administration is lying about its stealth amnesty activities and its alarming contempt for Congress and the rule of law. Frankly, these documents show that Obama immigration officials don’t even know what the law is! The Obama administration cannot simply pick and choose which federal immigration laws it will enforce. In its zeal to curry favor with the illegal alien lobby and secure Hispanic votes for a second term, the Obama administration is exercising raw executive power to change the law by granting illegal aliens amnesty in a way that strikes at the heart of our constitutional system and the rule of law. This is a festering constitutional crisis,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

ok so Obama has decided to have his own legislative powers seperate from the legislature. We now have two legislative bodies.

Who has standing to sue?

turbin durbin must be dancing.

This is the only way Obama can get votes, the votes of illegal alien criminals.

Nothing this administration does surprises me anymore, and nothing it does will get the attention of the MSM or alienate his devoted followers.

I honestly don’t know but it should if Congress investigates and makes enough noise. Obama is subverting our immigration laws.

We’ve had that for a long time. It’s called the regulatory state.

IT HAS, AND IT DOES, AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO UNTIL IT BECOMES SO OBVIOUS AND PAINFUL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THEY DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY FROM CONGRESS..............

this has been the plan all along by repubs and dems. the fastest path to citizenship is to get pulled over by the cops for breaking the law.

why do you think we cant secure our own border? repubs and dems are risking american lives 10 years after 9/11 for votes.

why can we not get representatives elected who feel the same as 75% of americans? they will decide who our neighbors will be while they live in gated communities and drive around in motorcades. and there is nothing we can do about it except vote d or democrat lite.

ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to get 4 more years. The 2010 elections screwed things up when the Republicans took control in the House and he desperately needs those other 4 years to complete the destruction of this country as a lame duck. Who knows, after 4 more years he may just decide he’s going to stay there forever. The man is insane. America is undergoing a coup and doesn’t even realize it.

He said he wanted to write his own laws. Congress didn't call him on it. The msm didn't call him on it. The majority of the voters didn't call him on it. It's not likely these documents JW has will go much further.

We don't need no stinkin’ Constitution!

Amnesty for all!

Vote early! Vote often!

Alinksy rules!

Praise Allah!

ObamaCare!

QE 4!

Mmmmmm mmmmmm!

{why can we not get representatives elected who feel the same as 75% of americans? }

Possibly because they are effective liars, and their audience are willfully ignorant. Witness the current efforts to persuade us that Perry will actually close the borders and balance the budget. We believed GW, when the passed that phony build the fence legislation, that they promptly defunded after the election.

Are there really no politicians that have true core values that prevent them from engorging themselves on the taxpayer’s blood?

Herman Cain is well received because he is perceived to be an honest broker of the constitution, the same is true of Sarah Palin. Personally I would much rather have honest souls than experienced thieves in charge of the Constitution.

To what extent the administration can fail to faithfully execute the laws of the United States before Congress must do its duty to impeach? When combined with Fast and Furious and the shameful deaths of Mexican nationals, I think that line has been crossed with a ‘pattern and practice’ of willful neglect.

Time to send some money to JW AND FR.

Looks like Churchhill was right - “When the eagles are silent, the parrots begin to jabber.”

Money speaks.
