Skip to comments.Next Phase in Stealing Election: Homeland Security Stops Deportations of Young Illegal Immigrants
Posted on 06/16/2012 5:40:15 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Faced with falling support among blacks, Jews, women and every other group of supporters President Obama is making a play to boost his popularity among Latinos by doing an end run around Congress again.
Unable to pass the Dream Act for the past two years, Obama has ordered his Department of Homeland Security to halt deportations of 800,000 young illegal immigrants who overstayed their visas or snuck into the country when they were 16 or younger.
In the next 60 days, Homeland harridan Janet Napolitano announced, DHS will begin handing out two-year renewable work permits to illegal youths who havent been convicted of a serious crime, have graduated high school or have joined the military.
According to Napolitano, It is not immunity, it is not amnesty. It is an exercise of discretion so that these young people are not in the removal system.
Its just a coincidence, we are led to believe, that this exercise of discretion performs bureaucratically what couldnt pass legally just in time for a presidential election. The coincidence deepens with the realization that the Department of Justice has blocked states from removing unqualified voters from their rolls, also in time for the election.
In an afternoon speech, Obama discussed the move, which he pinned solely on Napolitano as if he had nothing to do with it. He washed his hands of the decision and denied it was a form of amnesty.
Rush Limbaugh this morning dubbed the new program Catch-Release-Vote. Hes absolutely right. If a voter registration card doesnt come stapled to the DHS work permits, its a sure bet that this crooked administration will have representatives of the SEIU, OWS or some other henchmen standing outside the DHS offices with forms in hand.
Previously, Obama himself had admitted to a young illegal that he couldnt use an executive order to pass the failed Dream Act into law: There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply, through executive order, ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President, Obama said in March 2011.
But in an election year, what the heck.
GOP politicians were quick to condemn the move. President Obama and his administration once again have put partisan politics and illegal immigrants ahead of the rule of law and the American people, Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement.
Democrats naturally were ecstatic over the move. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg took a break from selecting his citys lunch menu to say, Ending deportations of innocent young people who have the potential to drive tomorrows economy is long overdue, as are many common-sense reforms needed to center our immigration policy around our economic needs.
The media this morning were jumping on board, dubbing the objects of Napolitanos fait accompli Dreamers after the Dream Act.
Personally, I think its Obama and the Democrats who are dreamers here. Voters were already getting fed up with Obamas incompetence and corruption. This latest illegal action is simply going to add to the fire.
Latinos who are citizens or legal immigrants arent as easily manipulated as the White House and media believe, and most of them dont appreciate moochers who think they can skate past the laws that they themselves had to conform to. This move will whip up support for Obama among people who are not voters, and the president is hoping that will translate to the illegals family members who are legally registered a questionable proposition.
The real danger will be the advancement of opportunities for voter fraud. By setting up a situation where states cannot verify voters identities, remove fraudulent voters from rolls or in any way protect the voting process, the administration is setting the stage for an election steal.
Add all that to the behind-the-scenes moves by people like George Soros and his vast network of front organizations to get involved in the vote counting process and youve got a recipe for fraud on a vast scale.
Theres another aspect to this that deserves consideration. Obama has the Occupy movement in his pocket, alongside the New Black Panthers, the SEIU and any number of unnamed socialist and communist groups just waiting in the wings for their opportunity to come out swinging. The more fires Obama lights with his illegal actions, the more voter frustration will grow. At some point, it will take only one hothead or one well-placed liberal plant with a molotov cocktail or a gun to light the fuse on a powder keg.
If that were to happen, Obama has put in place several executive orders that would allow him to declare martial law and dispatch the military and federal agents to enforce it. While the media have been looking the other way, the DHS has been stocking up on 450 million hollow point rounds, other ammunition and arms, a move theyve refused to clearly explain.
Even if the worst doesnt come to pass, theres no way this latest move will stop at 800,000 youths or even be confined to one age bracket. Obama today, through his lackeys at DHS, has violated the law and enacted de facto amnesty, something the citizens of this country have opposed for decades.
And the craven sheeple who vote them in.
Thanks Tolerance Sucks Rocks.
Halfway through the second renewal = 5 years.
That invokes eligibility for application for citizenship.
And that IS amnesty.
“There is no more Law in the USA.
Just the undocumented Tyrant and the
weakest, greediest Congress in the history of the world.”
You got that right.
What, you don't allocate any blame to the House of Representatives? They're the ones holding the purse strings.
Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza indoctrination study programs. in Tuscon schools.
America-hater Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...Adelita is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.
Raul Grijalva is one of Mexicos most productive and loyal representatives in our Congress....aiding and abetting building a Third World on US soil.
Mmmmmmm....those father daughter chats must be interesting.
“What, you don’t allocate any blame to the House of Representatives? They’re the ones holding the purse strings.”
The House keeps passing budgets that the Senate leadership refuses to bring up to a vote. Of course these budgets call for cuts in spending and Senator Reid will not let them come up for a vote at all.
The only budgets that get to the Senate are the President’s budgets, but they are voted down 99-0. It looks like Harry Reid has everything under control.
EVERY ILLEGAL ALIEN will now be obtaining a high school diploma. ALL OF THEM.
G.E.D.’s will be on sale through diploma mills.
This is a pure 100% scam.
This has nothing to do with young-uns.
BRIAN TERRY DID NOT DIE FOR AMNESTY !!
It's unfortunate that we didn't have a mechanism in place to deal with this, something that would give preference to those who were brought over as infants and toddlers, have been fully Americanized and are currently law-abiding, studious and productive. But we didn't and now we have a blanket amnesty that protects the gang-banger just as much as the honor student. I blame the "deport 'em all!" folks for poisoning the well over this issue with their rigid and politically unrealistic demands just as much as I blame Obama.
actually, after reading a bit about it, I found that Senator Rubio had proposed a partial amensty bill in Congress in April, that probably would have been passed this summer.
Obama broke the law to beat the Republicans to the punch, to broaden the criteria, and to get votes.
