(VIDEO) Judges Baffled by DHS Efforts to Deport Legal Immigrant
Breitbart News ^

Posted on 01/20/2014 4:10:23 AM PST by Opinionatedtoday

As the U.S. Chamber of Commerce renews their efforts to pass the Senate’s stalled immigration overhaul that includes legalizing millions of illegal aliens, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) continues its history of trying to kick out taxpaying, crime-free, professional legal immigrants—including earthquake engineers stuck in the broken system.

In the court proceeding at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California, Patricia Peters v. Janet Napolitano, No: 10-55889, the panel of three judges appeared to be in disbelief as to why the government has been trying to deport Peters. The case was originally filed against President George Bush’s DHS Chief, Michael Chertoff, and was automatically transferred to new DHS Chief Jeh Charles Johnson after Napolitano resigned.

Judge Callahan quizzed the Office of Immigration Litigation (OIL) lawyer under the DHS, Patricia Bruckner, “Why are you so intent on removing this woman? In probably all of the people I have seen in ten years, she seems to be the least culpable and the most productive.”

“If you are on FOX News when you don’t remove someone; and it is a drunk driver that kills a citizen—you know, we have ordered removal, and they are not gone and they kill someone," Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Consuelo Callahan said to Bruckner. “I don’t think you would be on FOX News for letting Miss Peters stay.”

“You would probably not make the news at all but you will go home and sleep better at night,” Judge Richard Tallman added.

According to Holder and the DO”J”,
he must rape an American baby,
or murder a white American, to stay in America.

Diogenesis, if we were being honest, we would have to say that the US government is being run by black racists. The ultimate fruits of slavery have been reaped.

Sounds horrible but I don’t necessarily disagree with the government. H1-B visas expire or the company is bought by another company requiring another review of H1-B status.

The story is a little vague on exactly what ‘status’ change on her H1-B occurred requiring her to reapply. The excuse the government provides is lame. Had the just stuck with the excuse that she’s no longer a qualified H1-B applicant the court would have little to say about it.

I’ve seen a lot of H1-B abuse in U.S high tech Industry. The government needs to be able to review these applicants and approve and disapprove them at their own discretion.

So true...

My wife and I joke as we go off to work that it's time "to go pick de cotton."

It does suck to be working to pay for someone else's stuff.

Simple: she is probably a Caucasian Christian with a job and education - the LEAST desirable kind of immigrant.

Interesting this thing started back when that idiot Bush II was President. Guess he and his successor prefer to bring in more unemployable Somali Muslims.

If they don’t meet those qualifications then they must at least be a drain upon society rather than a contributor. After all the true goal is to fundamentally change America.

This looks like a good case to rule that the federal government not only has the authority but the legal obligation to deport ANYBODY who is here illegally.

If you are on a visa and it is not renewed, you are supposed to leave. If you have no visa, you are not supposed to arrive and should be deported immediately.
