Skip to comments.New Obama Executive Action Plan on Amnesty: Bring Kids to U.S. Directly From Central America
Posted on 07/25/2014 5:32:02 AM PDT by Kaslin
With no plans to secure the border, President Obama is considering executive action without Congress to grant Hondurans amnesty and to set up a program to screen "refugees" in the country before green lighting them into the United States, cutting out the process of trekking through Mexico. From the New York Times:
The Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.
If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House said, putting the violence in Honduras on the level of humanitarian emergencies in Haiti and Vietnam, where such programs have been conducted in the past amid war and major crises.
Critics of the plan were quick to pounce, saying it appeared to redefine the legal definition of a refugee and would only increase the flow of migration to the United States. Administration officials said they believed the plan could be enacted through executive action, without congressional approval, as long as it did not increase the total number of refugees coming into the country.
This plan contradicts initial claims by the administration children in the United States illegally will be sent back. Not only is the White House not stopping the flow of illegal alien children, they're planning to increase the number of unaccompanied children in the U.S. with President Obama's pen.
Last night Senators Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz ripped the administration's plan on the Senate floor.
"Know that we are facing an exceedingly grave threat of an unbelievable expansion of his unilateral executive orders of amnesty that go beyond anything we've ever seen in this country and threatens the very constitutional framework of our republic and the very ability of this nation to even have borders," Sessions said.
Sessions: Congress Must Stop President's Planned Amnesty Orders
The current situation in the Rio Grande Valley is a humanitarian crisis of this Administrations making. President Obama set the stage for this crisis by refusing to live up to his most basic responsibility to secure our border, imposing huge human and financial costs on border communities and on immigrants who come here illegally, Sen. Cruz said in a statement. He has also sent a message to the world that the United States is not serious about enforcing its immigration laws by lawlessly granting amnesty through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. To solve this problem, we must put a stop to President Obamas amnesty and give governors all options possible to mitigate this crisis in light of the federal governments inaction.
Cruz has introduced legislation , the Protect Children and Families Through the Rule of Law Act, in order to "stop President Obamas amnesty, reform the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Act, and empower governors to utilize the National Guard to address this specific crisis at federal expense, including authority to arrest violators of federal immigration, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and terrorism laws."
Meanwhile, leaders from Central American countries are meeting at the White House today to discuss the ongoing crisis.
President Barack Obama is summoning Central American leaders to the White House to discuss the influx of young immigrants from their countries to the U.S., hoping to show presidential action even as Congress remains deeply split over proposals to stem the crisis on the border.
The meeting comes as the administration is considering creating a pilot program giving refugee status to young people from Honduras, White House officials said Thursday. The plan would involve screening youths in their home country to determine whether they qualify for refugee status. The program would be limited and would start in Honduras but could be expanded to include other Central American countries.
Earlier this week, Speaker John Boehner sent a letter to President Obama threatening funding if border security is not taken seriously.
Will anyone stop this piece of excrement?
He is truly nuts.
Liberals don’t procreate enough, they prefer to kill their own children. So, what’s a liberal to do, except bring them in from other countries?
Do it there, and then you will see it pop up in dozens of nations.
Then they will demand that the “parents” of these brats be allowed in too!!!
Even Canada doesnt do this crap!
I am strongly pro life but if obama is so strongly pro choice seems like he would no sending abortionist and abortion inducing drugs to save these poor Hondurans from being “punished with a baby?”
He needs to be locked in an institution. That’s for sure and all those who voted for him. Especially those who voted twice for him
Who Cares if more than a few get raped or are sick.
It's Just Mass Human Migration, Like the Germans out of East Prussia in 1945.
You can't make an Omelet without breaking some eggs......
Utter, destructive, mindless insanity!
I don’t get this...
We have legal immigration, direct from country to US. We have illegal alien “immigration”, in-the-shadows from country to US.
Is what Ø is planning here a mechanism to take the people that otherwise would be doing the latter, but making a mechanism along the lines of legal immigration? He’s just pulling the rug out from under legal immigration.
Oh come on now! He’s just preppin’ his little “army” for the Balkanization of America and the next race war.
In the end that’s what this is about—I don’t care what anybody says.
It’s all a plan to bring the gang “MS-13” into the US. First bring in little kids, then their parents, grandparents etc. Set them up in a house or apartment. Six months later the tattooed face murdering gang member brother/cousins sneak into the US, and use those extended families as a base of operations. Its all a criminal enterprise, planned by O-Hole/Jarret themselves. Get ready to see public beheadings on the street corners of Peoria, Fon-du-Lac, etc. BUY all the ammo you can, NOW.
Wouldn’t mKe the illegals slaves to the US government since they have no skills and are uneducated!
MKe = this make
This has the potential to produce great economic harm to Mexico by cutting out the coyote middleman. The proposal must be amended to provide subsidies for those coyotes inadvertently harmed by this action.
Flying them directly into multiple disbursed locations makes it easier to cover up what the actual numbers are, and where they’re being dumped.
No, he isn’t nuts...He’s doing exactly what was planned all along...Create chaos and disunity in America to the extent that some form of revolt takes place...
Then he can declare martial law and effectively cancel elections in order to stay in power...
This WOULD create probably a real revolt and a bloody one at that...
I do believe this is his ultimate plan....
“Speaker John Boehner sent a letter to President Obama threatening funding if border security is not taken seriously.
Now there is a show of some strong leadership!
I hope he has a stroke.
To understand our situation, think of US as a corporation whose stock has been purchased by corporate raiders, NOT Bain Capital and we're now being liquidated by the new ownership and Barry is in charge of the liquidation.
The oligarchy, inc. that owns him and US needs fresh fuel and tools to run their machine and let's be honest, the homegrown just isn't up to snuff, from a business point of view.
The local average, when compared to the imported, is expensive to acquire, not "plug and play", generally high maintenance, unreliable and often prone to break down, which is partly why we were so cheap to acquire.
From the oligarchy's point of view, it's much more cost effective to move operations overseas into new, modern facilities, then crash the previous operating system and accounting here and start fresh in whatever rises from the chaos they create and somewhat direct and control.
To do that, they need to import some additional tools to assist with their planned liquidation and sale.
Nothing personal...just business. It will be so much better once things are reorganized. You'll see. You can trust Barry.
