Skip to comments.White House: Amnesty for DREAMers' Parents as Early as Fall
Posted on 06/29/2014 5:12:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
As illegal immigrants flood across the border, President Barack Obama is still reportedly planning to issue an executive action to give temporary amnesty and work permits this year to the parents of illegal immigrant children.
A "senior official familiar with the White House deliberations" told the Los Angeles Times that the "work is continuing" on a Deferred Action program for the parents of so-called DREAMers and other executive actions to ease deportations. The Times noted that the program "was tentatively slated to be announced this fall," but the Obama administration may try to enact it after the midterm elections because two in three Americans, according to the most recent Gallup poll, disapprove of the way Obama is handling immigration right now.
In 2012, Obama, by executive fiat, enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that gave temporary amnesty and work permits for two years to illegal immigrant children who came to the country before they were 16, had been living in the United States since 2007, were not over 30 years of age, and met a variety of other requirements.
As Breitbart News has reported, "at least 560,000 people to date have been granted temporary amnesty under the DACA program," and federal officials expect that number will increase as "applicants who were not eligible in 2012 because they were not 16 years of age" will be able to apply for DACA in September, when those who received temporary amnesty in 2012 can re-apply for another two years.
Amnesty advocates stormed Congress on Friday to demand Deferred Action for the parents and family members of illegal immigrant children, which Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has also vehemently supported. Obama recently asked Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to delay its review of the nation's immigration laws....

He’s not going anywhere.
Just before the Election so everyone will Love him and Vote for All the Demonuts
100 million. Which means we are in the process of losing our country. Because most of our family and friends are too stupid and ignorant and cowardly and weak to do anything about it.
When did executive orders become executive actions?
President Jarret must have told the golfer that “orders” sounds too dictatorial.
We dont have to obey any more than he does the law. Deport the illegals
When the government is criminal what can the people do?
Jarret is thinking about running for Office
We have a history of defying tyrants. I dont care about anything he says. Allcitizens should do the same,including state elected officials.
We are in full leftist racial revolution, and not a single leader to say it. In fact they want to create “refugee program”to allow the kids to come here.
Do you see what happened to Iraq while these commies worked their magic?
That is in store for us.
Well, we elected ‘lesser evils’ over people of principle, so no. No one will.
Thank all those people who screamed GOP no matter what”. this is ‘what’ they got. Problem is we got it too.
I have very little family and few friends just for this reason. They’re evil.
Corporations should simply ignore the laws they don’t like....just like Obama does.
And governors should close the border. He can grant amnesty all he wants but only to those who can get across the border that’s being guarded by the national guard with orders to shoot to kill.
Load the buses up and get all illegals out of here. All states put their money together and build a wall. The feds cant stop it. The fbi running around bringing up charges on the gov of virginia who has done nothing wrong. The fed power has to be cut off. No military for them ect.
Hmmmmmm ......?????? October surprise anyone ..??
Oh? So it’s Dreamer for illegals but a nightmare for Americans. Got it.
I’m sure Bonehead and McCarthy will file a lawsuit to show they are
really, really serious.
Democrat voter registration drive ahead of the November midterm election!
ALL it will take is for one charismatic individual to call for the people to put a stop to this.
Anything to avoid impeachment. That could hurt the party! Screw the country!
Do not abstain from voting if you are republican on election day. Obummer is direct result of those who stayed home on election day 2012.
But for some people destruction of country is no big deal so long as they stayed pure.
Vote but skip the GOPE RINO’s
Exactly, it should have been done years ago. It wouldnt take long for the illegals to get the message. We have allowed the feds way too much power which is communism. We are the check. Disobey and take control of our country. Real simple
Obama is a direct result of those who saw McCain and Romney accurately
They have the power of the purse too. Of course they are afraid to shut down
this bloated government. People who never vote GOP might get mad.
Same thing. Protect the party at the cost of America.
Oh! but Dems and GOP arent the same at all!
Vote, but pass on the RINO’s.
Contrary to previous statements, we know you peons don't want this invasion so we'll wait until you can't vote my minions out of office to complete our take over. /s
Now if the republicans weren't the Stupid Party, if they cared more about their base and the citizens of this country than their country club democrat friends, they would be shouting this as treason from the rooftops. But they want this to happen, so you won't hear them mention it at all.
Texas should start building the wall tomorrow with armed men, who are ready to shoot. If texas doesnt want to do it the citizens should ban together and do it.
If you listen he said that parents should not allow thier children to come over the border alone they should be accompanied. The pubic party sits silently more worried about how to get rats to vote for them in republican primaries than what the rat king is doing
I belonged to a local Republican group for a number of years and worked very hard to elect at least a majority in the House. Then this very group decided to totally support the local Chamber of Commerce in their quest to flood our Texas market with illegals. Never able to understand why - so I said adios. Lost lots of acquaintances. Turns out they were not the stuff friends or Conservatives are made of after all.
While our side sit on their collective asses being the smartest people in the room, the left takes over. :(
Looks to me like the only people who have to obey the law are middle class and working Americans, plus they get to foot the bill for all the law-breakers, both the illegals, the ghetto thugs, and the ones in political office.
Right, Thad Cochran told those rat voters that he would oppose Obama’s lawlessness. Oh wait, he told them that conservatives are the problem for obstructing Obama.
The commies ‘RATS are scared to death that November is going to be a disaster unless they can quickly come up with a whole crapload of freeloading, low information Marxist voters who love fascist government.
This is what is sick about the whole Obama mess: If Obama was legally able to run for a third term, the voters who voted for him the last two times would probably vote for him again, no matter how terrible a president he has been and no matter how much he has abused his power. Sad.
Nope. Time to put a stop to this. Now
I guess Obama was the lesser of two Evils, very interesting.
I had no idea Obama he was a Republican though.
You learn something new every day around here.
Well, doesn’t matter anyway, we’re stuck with Obama until January of 2017 and Harry Reid will still be running the Senate long after that.
It was a great Country while it lasted. Time to grab a tub of Popcorn and watch the show.
Actually the facts show our side voluntarily adopted the left’s agenda one little step at a time. Incrementalism. Just as the left has always done things.
Today, the Political Right/GOP is a pressure relief valve at best. They give you liberalism a little at a time rather than the Dems having to. Except now it’s not so little.
But still we see excuses. Last week one Freeper posted border patrol ‘facts” on fencing effectiveness from a Pro Amnesty website. A few days ago Another said that Abortion was a lesser evil. Last night one argued endlessly that Reagan’s GOP was more liberal than todays.
Anyone think we aren’t infiltrated?
Absolutely correct my FRiend.
They would Vote for him a fourth time too.
As if Barry/Romney was the first time ‘lesser evil’ entered the lexicon. Freeper please.
Liberals are very patient.
With Obama they don’t need to be patient anymore. They advance their cause weekly now, no make that daily.
Well, in the General Election there were two choices and I guess the People picked their idea of the Lesser of Two Evils.
So here we are. Things will only get worse from here.
