Skip to comments.White House Debates How Far to Go in Easing Deportations (Amnesty for returned deportees?)
Posted on 05/16/2014 3:59:14 PM PDT by kristinn
At a recent White House meeting with immigration activists, President Obama told the group his hands were tied. Even if he wanted to halt the deportations of millions of illegal immigrants, the president told the group, he could not do so without congressional approval.
But Mr. Obama has more latitude than he lets on, legal experts say, and he may soon reveal how he intends to use it. Under increasing pressure to slow the pace of deportations from Hispanic supporters who helped get him re-elected in 2012, the president has ordered his Homeland Security secretary to make immigration enforcement more humane.
That directive has led to an intense debate about how far the president should go in protecting large groups of illegal immigrants from deportation. Despite the presidents repeated insistence that he is not a king, administration officials are considering a range of options to further shift enforcement to focus on criminals and recent border crossers, and away from people with clean records.
At a minimum, officials said the Department of Homeland Security was likely to issue new guidelines for law enforcement agents to make it clear that immigrants who are part of a family settled in this country should not be priorities for deportation, especially if their family includes American citizens. Officials are also considering changes that would shield some people who have returned to the country illegally after being deported. Right now, those people are charged with a felony and ordered out of the country.
