$465 for Legal Status Under Obama’s ‘Dream Act’
ABC News ^ | August. 3, 2012 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 08/03/2012 6:22:46 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

The Obama administration will formally begin granting some young undocumented immigrants legal status and work permits later this month under a controversial new policy first announced by President Obama in June.

The Department of Homeland Security today announced details of the application and approval process for the DREAM Act-like program, outlining specific eligibility requirements and a $465 fee. It will begin Aug. 15.

Illegal immigrants younger than 30 who came to the United States before age 16, have lived here for at least five years continuously, attend or have graduated from high school or college, and have no criminal convictions are eligible to submit requests for so-called deferred action (legalese for an official exemption from deportation).

The administration said documentation provided by each applicant will be reviewed individually on a case-by-case basis at one of four service centers run by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. It’s unclear how long each review will take, but some immigrants are expected to receive temporary legal status before Election Day.

While the “dreamers” will not obtain a path to citizenship or the right to vote, Obama’s policy shift – circumventing Congress with executive action – has been widely seen as a politically motivated nod to Hispanics who have long sought the change.

So, let's say you have a young woman who was brought here as a 15 year old to work as a prostitute ~ and she's 20 and been here 5 years ~ she pays the government $465 and she can keep on working.

It occurs to me that I've found the most powerful motive for the Chicago crowd to put the big moves on Obama to do this ~ the prostitution angle.

Who can forget how Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod found it so easy to cough up prostitutes (or women of otherwise easy virtue) to make all sorts of claims about Mr. Cain.

It was absolutely amazing how many women like that they knew and could just trot them out like trained trick ponys.

Whatever we do to allow time illegal to gain legal permission to work and live here, we must NEVER allow these people to have the right to vote.

This is one of the penalties they must bear for having come here illegally and it is to also frustrate those politicians who viewed illegals as a future voting block.

My wife has become a naturalized US citizen, legally and by the book, and it cost a heck of a lot more than $465. Perhaps a bit under ten times as much.

This is one of the acts of this administration that anger me the most. Congress has repeated voted down Dream Act proposals one after another, year after year, regardless of party in power.

How dare this be imposed by fiat!

I think Mark Levin considered this an impeachable offense committed by DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano.

The Kenyan is selling U.S. citizenship for $465 bucks. Under Barry’s communist regime, our vote means nothing. Now, our citizenship means absolutely nothing. Barry will make you an “American” for only $465 bucks! What a pig!!! I still say we should elect only Americans to the presidency.

OBAMA'S DREAM ACT Illegals younger than 30 who came here before age 16, have lived here for at least five years continuously, attend or have graduated from high school or college, and have no criminal convictions are eligible to submit requests and a $475 fee for so-called deferred action (legalese for an official exemption from deportation)......

Mmmmmmmmm.....gonna take time to sort out the Dreamers' multiple identities. Will need to use a new identity ---one that has no criminal record.

Will the process determine how many US tax dollars each identity was pocketing?

How many UI paychecks? How many welfare checks?How many food stamps?

How many SSI checks?

How much money are they laundering---wiring money to secret Mexican bank accounts?

Do they have jobs driving a truck at night? Coyotes-—transporting terrorists, drug lords and cartels, and other undesirables, across the border?

Are they document brokers——mfg and selling faked/forged documents for several thousand dollars apiece, so that illegals can establish multiple identities?

Did they get in-state tuition?

Did their parents (or other illegals) falsely declare them on federal apps to get $$$thousands in EITC refunds----maybe falsely stating their "kids" (existent and non-existent) were back home across the border?

So many questions---so few answers.

DID APPLICANTS SWINDLE THE US GOVT?
DID THEY OBTAIN FRAUDULENT MORTGAGES?
MORTGAGES THAT DEVSTATED THE US ECONOMY?
THAT US TAXPAYERS WERE FORCED TO BAILOUT?

The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, lender and banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers considered to be unqualified Latinos.

"HOGAR" colluded w/ Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers. Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.

HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."

HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals. citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.

Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:

(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;

(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;

(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;

(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,

(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.

HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:

<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.

<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,

<><> The most shocking example of bribery well-substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.

The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.

<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.

<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.

The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.

The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage nrokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.

The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.

L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.

BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.

This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.

When President Obama came out and announced his ‘policy’ change he said it would benefit 600,000 illegal aliens who were brought here as children.

Then the number jumped up to 800,000 illegal aliens who may qualify.

Now it is up to 1.4 million illegal aliens who may qualify.

Only a fool thinks that number won’t grow. You know that the printing presses for false documents are already up and running, and fake school and medical records will be printed to give as ‘proof’ these ‘children’ meet the criteria.
