Obama readies major action on immigration enforcement
Washington Post ^ | July 25, 2010 | Peter Slevin

Posted on 07/25/2010 1:56:00 PM PDT by mdittmar

In a bid to remake the enforcement of federal immigration laws, the Obama administration is deporting record numbers of illegal immigrants and auditing hundreds of businesses that blithely hire undocumented workers.

The Immigation and Customs Enforcement agency anticipates deporting about 400,000 people this fiscal year, nearly 10 percent above the Bush administration's 2008 total and 25 percent more than were deported in 2007. The pace of company audits has roughly quadrupled since former President Bush's final year in office.

Publicity stunt/press release/propaganda.

Did you notice that they (Obama’s presstitues) IMMEDIATELY compared these numbers (without checking them, or comparing them to the arrest/don’t check illegal status “rules” they require) to numbers under Bush?

Yeah? Prove it.

And then show me the proof that the economy is in "recovery".

And then show me the proof that extending unemployment benefits creates jobs.

And then prove to me why you need to extend unemployment benefits when the economy is recovering.

I believe this, only because Clinton was tougher on illegal immigration than Bush. Not by much, granted, but better.

However, this number is a drop in the bucket compared to the problem, so it is for election year consumption.

Now, how in the hell are they going to do that without asking them about their immigration status? This steenking injustice to their civil rights is just racist to the core. The gringo el presidente just hates Mexicans!!

......"anticipates"......"designed to"....."expects that"...."hopes to".......blah, blah blah, blah-blah, blah effing blah.....

These cretins think that 'words' and 'plans' are a substitute for substantive action. Apparently so, the tardo Washington Post believes this horseshit.

The only 'substantive' action that comes out of an Obama Administration promise is another effing lie about what the results were or what happened. That, or if it fails completely, as usual, blame it on that nefarious bastard 'W'.....

Don’t fall for it. He knows where he stands with the country on the immigration issue and he also knows he is haemorrhaging Democrats/independents on this. Besides, he won’t change his stance on Amnesty. This is just for show.

The GOP and the right has got to make this point very clear.

This whole “immigration debate” is about MAKING DEMOCRAT VOTERS OUT OF ILLEGAL ALIEN FELONS AFTER GRANTING THEM AMNESTY.

And the answer to that is not no, but HELL NO, and also make it clear that if the socialists succeed in MAKING DEMOCRAT VOTERS OUT OF ILLEGAL ALIEN FELONS AFTER GRANTING THEM AMNESTY, their CITIZENSHIP AND RIGHT TO WORK WILL BE REVOKED AND THEIR ASSES DEPORTED AND THROWN IN JAIL as soon as the GOP takes over Congress and the Presidency.

This is a god damned war, we need to fight this marxist dirty trick to the last man.

Hey Obama, we already got an Arizona memorial to another foreign people who pulled a sneak attack on us. Why are you dead set on another?

The obama ICE is going after more businesses, BUT not detaining illegals found . The illegals are “expected” to self deport. The government is counting all these illegals as being deported because ICE cost them their jobs.( or at least temporarily). Ain’t government “math” wonderful.

More and more each day this trash in the white house reminds me of some of the black neighborhoods in Atlanta, Where you have a nice wasdhed and polished Cadillac park out side of the house with nice new polished mags and a fur steering wheel, but the side toward the house is sitting on blocks and the motor is blown.

Key word='s "anticipates".

Oh and what exactly is "the pace of audits" ? Are they doing more or are they rushing them ?

Dumb bunny couldn’t create private jobs any other way, so he deports some illegals, who will just sneak back across with in days of being deported. And go right back to working under the table at their old jobs. LOL

Morton’s June 30 memorandum set priorities for the capture, detention and removal of illegal immigrants. With the federal system facing a limit on how many people it can deport each year, he wrote, “principal attention” must go to people convicted of felonies or at least three misdemeanors punishable by jail time.

In descending order of importance, the memo cites people convicted of a misdemeanor, those caught near the border and individuals who have failed to obey deportation orders.

While the Obama administration focuses on suing Arizona for doing the job he won’t, his Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) chief John Morton focuses on the important issues of ICE. But the agency suspiciously has no breakdown of the crimes and will not accept the illegals that Arizona deports. What a freakin’ joke.

This is another attempt to force amnesty for illegal aliens through. They have to make it look like they are enforcing the law in order to use the old con they always use. They'll give some superficial enforcement of the law and then say "we have secured the border so we have to give amnesty to everyone already here..."

Another point. This is also an attempt by the administration to undermine Arizona's case for their immigration law. If AZ wins the suit it could rewrite the balance of power between the feds and the states. The feds don't want more checks on their power. If Obama starts enforcing the law, then AZ can't claim that they had no choice but to protect themselves since the feds wouldn't. Then once the case is over and the Administration has AZ's law quashed, they can stop their superficial enforcing the law again.

It's also an election year, and the Obama Administration has to woo the angry people back until after the election.

There is not one word about closing the border in this article. Fine I agree, employers should be targeted. But that is not the first or even 42nd step. The Mexican mafia members are not working in a factory somewhere.

Close the flipping border, tax out of country cash transfers at 25% and then work on the rest. 400,000 getting deported probably will not come up to half of the number coming in each year.

“Bull”

I agree. Obama is probably speeding deportations of the backlog of criminal aliens. For the rest, he has declared a defacto amnesty. Even when a business is raided, the illegals are not detained. All of the nuisance crime with illegal immigration (identity theft, driving without insurance, shoplifting, fraudulent tax returns, ...) is swept aside.
