Obama admin unilaterally changes law to allow immigrants with 'limited' terror contact into US
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/5/14

Posted on 02/05/2014 5:10:45 PM PST by Nachum

The Obama administration has issued new exemptions to a law that bars certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided “limited material support” to terrorists who are believed to pose no threat from the U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday in the Federal Register to narrow a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act excluding refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor, to terrorists.

“These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or under significant pressure,” a DHS official explained to The Daily Caller.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry signed the exemptions.

DHS contends that the law change is “commonsense” and that immigration procedures will remain the same in other respects.

When one branch of the government can "unilaterally change" a law, then there is no law and there is no Constitution.

Or, to put it another way: we have not lived under the rule of law since 2009.

... and there’s no one in a position of authority to do so who is “brave” enough ... or honorable enough ... to challenge it.

REFERENCE Federal outreach to Muslim American communities is a pillar of Obama counter-terrorism strategy
Washington post | 5/25/2013 | ap / FR Posted by tobyhill

Within hours of the Boston Marathon blasts, government officials and Muslims in Boston called each other to offer assistance. These calls were the fruits of years of cultivating such relationships in an effort to ultimately prevent the very type of attack Boston experienced April 15....

Representatives from the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security called to offer support to Muslim communities......just in case THEY suffered backlash or threats. (more on FR)

==================================================

5/9/13 | LA TIMES, by Brian Bennett / FR Posted by SilvieWaldorfMD

WASHINGTON — Five days before two bombs tore through crowds at the Boston Marathon, an intelligence report identified the finish line as an "area of increased vulnerability" and warned Boston police that homegrown extremists could use "small-scale bombings" to attack spectators and runners at the event.

The 18-page report, similar to others sent to police and first responders before major events in the Boston area, was written by the Boston Regional Intelligence Center, which is funded in part by the Department of Homeland Security and helps disseminate intelligence information to local police and first responders.

The assessment noted that there was "no credible, specific information indicating an imminent threat" to the race. "The FBI has not identified any specific lone offender or extremist group who pose a threat to the Boston Marathon," the report said. In the aftermath of the bombing, who in law enforcement knew what and when have become significant points of contention.

Even as federal officials pointed to the warning as evidence they had done their jobs, Boston and Massachusetts state police officials complained at a congressional hearing Thursday that the FBI had not told them about an earlier investigation involving Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of two brothers accused of carrying out the April 15 attacks that left three dead and more than 260 injured.

Why not just do away with the law entirely? He’s got the pen and ink.

Makes me think if Red Dawn. Infiltration of the enemy from within and an attack from our open borders.

This is darn near treason. NSA spying on all Americans while the Regime is allowing terrorists to enter.

Why are they discriminating against immigrants who provide unlimited material support to terrorists? When will the blatant bigotry in this administration stop?

Loyal RINO Obamacrats Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell, Cornyn, and McCain will run to Obama’s side and rescue the highly unpopular “Obama Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico” with the even more unpopular “RINO Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.”

Always eager to fail, the RINOs have decided at their weekend RINO hug fest that rescuing the already failed Obama Amnesty Plan is just to tempting a guaranteed failure to pass up.

Boehner’s support will guarantee that no RINOs will ever again receive any Latino votes.

as long as all incoming immigrants with ‘limited terrorist activity’ are given directions and bus tokens to 1600 Penn Ave, then I’m ok with it.

of course, that won’t happen... these terrorists will enter into our communities and target our families directly...

which will result in cries for more police and federal protections... requiring higher taxes and larger govt. playing right into the hands of those that set this into motion

how long must we play stupid?

Were not the 911 Atrocities enough?

No. Was not the Boston Atrocity enough?

WHY DID THEY NOT NEED PASSPORTS?
and WHY WERE THE WARNINGS IGNORED?

and WHY IS NO ONE IN JAIL for either?

The reason no one is in jail but a feckless CIA dupe is because the real criminal bastards are running the white hut.

So far, for all his brave talk, this president has been scrupulously close to the edge, but never explicitly crossing over, into clear violations of the letter of federal statutes.

If the law allows HHS to promulgate regulations, even if Congress just amended the statute with a rider attached to the, so-called, "Farm Bill," then he isn't violating the letter of the law.

His "Climate Hubs," (oh, joy. Has anyone ever heard of NOAA, and the Weather Service?) for example, mention nothing about funding. It probably falls under the latitude granted the executive in renaming and relocating NOAA offices and/or personnel, or whatever.

I really don't want to hear about explicit law violations unless chapter and verse of federal statutes are quoted, along with exhaustive searches of any pertaining statutes cross-referenced. The fact that this "law change" was published in the Federal Register strongly hints at the admittedly nefarious "process" of promulgation of regulations, power of which the Congress has spinelessly passed along to its creatures (e.g. FCC?) "since forever," so to speak.

That's a tall but necessary order for any journo to get my headspace tuned to his frequency when talk about "crimes and misdemeanors" is tossed hither and yon.

That being said, it's not as though I expect anything short of lawlessness from this oath-breaker and his myriad henchmen. If I were elected to the House, I'd have a Resolution of Impeachment signed and in the Bill Hopper 30 seconds after I took the oath, but it wouldn't be a press release. It would be an indictment.

I guess the next step is inviting all jihadis worldwide into the US, actually paying their way, and giving them the codes to all US military armories.

Washington wants us to believe they will actually enforce any new immigration laws.He just makes up the laws as he see’s fit. Congress may as well go home. He does not care what they think or say. This must be the hope and change he spoke of welcome terrorists.

No he’s not. Someone else is behind him doing his thinking. He’s not really very bright. Saing that is racist though.

Exactly correct. That was one of the reasons he was thought to be more attractive than his marxist competitor for the office - he would be easier to handle. Secondly, of course, there was the opportunity for radical muslims and communists to join efforts (one can wonder how many muslims of any stripe would have voted for a woman).

There is a well-tuned engine spread throughout our government that is operated by dedicated "we know best" totalitarians.

Unfortunately, we are in a struggle for the soul of our nation and it doesn't seem our elected politicians realize that.
