Posted on 07/08/2014 10:32:48 PM PDT by lilyramone
The American Dream is dying for tens of millions of unemployed, underemployed and long-term jobless citizens. But the White House has guaranteed that one sector of the U.S. economy will thrive for decades to come: Open-borders immigration lawyers. Don't believe the fibbing D.C. flacks. While the president's spokesman Josh Earnest promised that "most" of the illegal immigrant youths from Central America flooding across our borders will "likely" be deported, decades of reality expose the White House lie. Our deportation system is designed to fail.

AMERICA NEEDS TO BE LED BY WARRIORS , NOT BY LAWYERS
A lot of these Illegal Invader shysters are Dreamers and/or al Raza jihadis.
Why do the alien invaders need shysters anyway? There aren’t any black robed tyrants who are going to send them home. The bull**** that goes on in the so called “immigration courts” is nothing but a low rent Kabuki dance between morons.
Why on Gods Earth should illegals get an appeal to the Federal Courts?
With millions of US Citizens waiting years to challenge thousands of outrageous usurpations of our Constitutional rights by the Federal Government that we should be waiting in line with illegal aliens for our turn to cry for relief before a Federal court is an outrage.
We don’t need to pay the lawyers. They are Obama’s people. He should just ask them to volunteer their time.
We are continually being lied to. Our government has turned into an anti-American institution only concerned with it’s own power.
Never forget that above all else Obama and his minions are lawyers first. Lawyers that are placed into a position of making laws have an automatic conflict of interest and should ethically recuse themselves from the process.
Start taking names of these lawyers and spread the word, don’t EVER use them. It’s not much but it’s something.
bump for later
Most of them specialize in immigration law rather than in general practice.
There’s an immigration attorney I know...most of his clients have actual or prospective employers....I’m not sure who handles this type of case or how they get paid.
DHS hired a whole chitload of them right before?after? the 2012 election.
If DHS has all these attorneys, why do they need money for more. We’re soooo being scammed.
If we need so many outside of DHS, why have them in DHS on the books? Dump them—they serve no purpose.
Matter of fact, DHS needs to go or be defunded...it’s not what it was sold as.
Are these folk who specialize on their own or part of a firm...find the firm and boycott.
They only work for illegal aliens..
Theres no end of “clients” for them..
and since the illegal aliens are suppose to be “poor”
(How they managed to find $8,000 and up to pay the coyote is ignored)
illegal aliens get their “immigration attorney” free..
Illegal aliens caused me many stitches in my head and more. I will never like them. This whole situation causes me stress and intense anger.
Here ya go...
speak of the devil
Obama Wants You To Fund Lawyers For New Illegals
ya really didn’t think that $4 BILLION was needed to close the border ???
Don't believe the fibbing D.C. flacks. While the president's spokesman Josh Earnest promised that "most" of the illegal immigrant youths from Central America flooding across our borders will "likely" be deported, decades of reality expose the White House lie. Our deportation system is designed to fail.
"Due process" in deportation is a euphemism for interminable delay. According to TRAC Immigration, which gathers data on the chronically backlogged immigration court system, there are currently more than 366,000 pending deportation cases with average wait times nationally of nearly 600 days. There are a measly 59 immigration courts staffed by a meager 235 judges to handle all those cases.
Insiders have told me again and again over the years: "It ain't over 'til the alien wins."
Democrats, as always, will blame lack of taxpayer funding. But here's the cold, hard fact: The system is "broken" on purpose. As they clamor for mass illegal alien amnesty, left-wing immigration lawyers and ethnic activists operate a lucrative industry whose sole objective is to help illegal aliens and convicted criminal visa holders evade deportation for as long as possible. Groups such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, and the American Friends Service Committee make their livelihoods off administrative bottlenecks.
The racket's chief enablers: The federal Executive Office for Immigration Review, which oversees the immigration courts nationwide, and its unaccountable appellate arm, the Board of Immigration Appeals, which routinely puts aliens' rights over citizens' safety.
The BIA's 15 members are politically appointed, career bureaucrats who have the power to overturn deportation orders nationwide. The panel is comprised largely of alien-friendly advocates from immigration-law circles, former Justice Department attorneys and former BIA staff. These meddling activists regularly reopen factual findings of lower trial courts, violating fundamental principles of appellate review and giving illegal aliens more opportunities to press their cases in federal courts than legal American citizens have.
The legal tricks for evading the flimsy immigration dragnet are well known among the immigrant population, as I first reported 12 years ago in a Center for Immigration Studies report on the deportation abyss. "Even if an alien is removable," an EOIR bureaucrat testified back then, "he or she may file an application for relief from removal, such as asylum, voluntary departure, suspension of deportation, cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, registry or a waiver of inadmissibility."
Today's young illegal border surgers have a plethora of litigation bites at the apple that will keep them in our country in perpetuity. As one of countless immigration law firms now advises, "There a several forms of relief that an unaccompanied child may apply for in immigration court." Voluntary departure is the de facto "catch and release" option that entrusts illegals to deport themselves. Then there's the scam-riddled asylum application process, which is significantly loosened for minors. Next alternative: the special juvenile immigrant visa which offers lawful permanent resident status to unaccompanied illegal alien children.
Another route: The fraud-friendly U visa. It's a program for illegal alien victims of trafficking or domestic violence that was supposed to grant temporary legal status if the beneficiaries assisted law enforcement, but has morphed into an ever-expanding path to residency, work authorization and citizenship for virtually anyone who applies.
An attorney who worked as a law clerk in the Fifth Circuit shared his firsthand experience with me several years ago. Nothing has changed. "It was amazing the number of petitions for review of BIA decisions we handled," he said. "You are absolutely correct that immigration lawyers use the current system of endless appeals to make illegals essentially undeportable. (It amazes me that illegal aliens, unlike American citizens, get TWO appeals as of right -- one to the BIA and then another to the Circuit Court of Appeals.)"
One real solution: "Repeal the statutory provisions that provide for judicial review by the Courts of Appeals and the Supreme Court," the lawyer told me. "It is clearly permissible for the Congress to do this under the Constitution. This would eliminate the biggest 'bottleneck' in the removal/deportation process. It would also reduce greatly the overburden dockets of our federal appellate courts."
Another solution: As I first proposed 12 years ago in my book "Invasion," it's long past time to abolish the EOIR and BIA and transfer their functions to existing law enforcement officers within the immigration bureaucracy.
Expedient promises by both parties to "secure the border" are worthless unless America shuts down the litigation boondoggle that rewards foreign law-breakers, their saboteur lawyers and their amnesty advocates.
UH, don't think so, I listed other leaches. 3.7 billion wasn't even all for the illegals.They lie and cheat.
Odumbo can truthfully say he is creating, or has created millions of new jobs as he continues to bring the illegals here. Not only will there be “jobs for life” lawyers but add in the millions of welfare workers needed to handle all these cases, the people who will be needed to print and also distribute the “edb” cards, all the other gubmint social programs that will be enhanced, there will be NO END to all the new jobs needed. Oh, I also neglected to add, the additional law enforcement people, jailers, prisons (BIG construction opportunities there) and the “first time voter” registration people, and on and on and on.
