Skip to comments.Obama Calls for Immigration Enforcement Review
Posted on 03/13/2014 6:01:21 PM PDT by kristinn
President Barack Obama has asked for a review of the administrations enforcement policies for immigration laws to see if it can be done more humanely within the confines of the law, the White House said Thursday.
The announcement came after Obama met Thursday evening with three leading members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus amid a furor in the Latino and immigration-rights community over the number of deportations of undocumented immigrants (sic: illegal aliens) under his administration.
The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system, the White House said in a readout of the meeting.
Obama asked Jeh Johnson, the Department of Homeland Security, to conduct the review, the White House said. Democratic Reps. Xavier Becerra of California, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and Rubén Hinojosa of Texas attended the Thursday meeting at the White House.
The president also told the three House Democrats of his strong desire to work together to pressure Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
The visit came as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which has played a key role on setting immigration policy for House Democrats, has been wrestling with a resolution aimed at Obama on deportations that would take a sharper line against the administration.
Key lawmakers and immigration reform advocates, highly skeptical that the GOP-led House will take up legislation this year, have upped pressure on the Obama administration to use executive action to suspend deportations they view as unnecessary.
Obama and his aides had repeatedly said that is not an option. Still, advocates have been hopeful that Obama will issue a directive similar to one he announced in spring 2012, which deferred deportations for hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants (sic_ illegal aliens)

3 more years of this is better than 20 years of what Boehner and Rubio have planned.
We may never see another Republican president.
what separation.....you all just go back to mexico.
“..We may never see another Republican president.”
That has been the plan since before day one.
Too bad for you, illegal alien, DON'T BREAK OUR LAWS. Now leave.
“President Barack Obama has asked for a review of the administrations enforcement policies for immigration laws to see if it can be done more humanely within the confines of the law, the White House said Thursday.”
IMO, it is inhumane to fail to maintain the sovereignty of a nation’s borders. Obama’s responsibility is to protect US citizens, not people blatantly disregarding our border and our law.
Smoke and mirrors: “Deportations” now includes illegals turned around at the border, whereas it meant those sent back from inside the country before the Liar-in-Chief.
Actual deportations from within country are sharply down.
The frogs in the water of rising temperature won’t know the difference, and the spineless GOP arm of the global cabal won’t expose this ruse either.
Fix is in, senor.
Where the hell are the Republicans?
Illegal aliens are like flies on the corpse of a once great nation.
All the republicans need to say is amnesty will work out as good as Obamacare has worked.
Game, set, match.
relieved that they won’t have to take a vote
Here you see Phila. Lawmakers See Good News In Nutters Plan To End ICE Holds...Michael Resnick, Philadelphias director of public safety (top photo), says the only exceptions will be where an individual is convicted of a serious felony.
The crimes were talking about are murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping, human trafficking, rape, robbery, and where ICE has separately obtained a warrant for the individual, Resnick told the councilmembers.
BUT Advocates say they want an end to all ICE holds, which they say lead to distrust between immigrants and police and break up otherwise law-abiding families...Advocates want murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping, human trafficking, rape, robbery serious dangerous criminals illegals to never have any ice holds nor should they be deported.This is their mindset that serious dangerous criminals being turned over to ice would lead to distrust between immigrants and police..Cause none of them are law-abiding families..This why illegals from all backgrounds are here and millions more shall come.Obama is weak on illegals and supporters support all illegals dangerous or non dangerous.http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2014/03/12/phila-lawmakers-see-good-news-in-nutters-plan-to-end-ice-holds/
He does that then he is a dictator. And the result will be revolution?
Can anyone tell me where to find a list of members for the congressional American caucus?
Cackling with glee, since they want the cheap labor.
Please, before I'm too old. I need some trigger time before I go.
America has been destroyed and nothing will stop it.
