Amnesty? Immunity? No, Napolitano Calls It a 'Deferred Action Process' By Susan Jones June 15, 2012 Subscribe to Susan Jones's posts

(CNSNews.com) - President Obama will discuss his administration's apparent end-run around Congress on immigration policy at 1:15 p.m. on Friday. Meanwhile, straight from the Homeland Security News release:

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria will be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings. Those who demonstrate that they meet the criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.

“Our nation’s immigration laws must be enforced in a firm and sensible manner,” said Secretary Napolitano. “But they are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case. Nor are they designed to remove productive young people to countries where they may not have lived or even speak the language. Discretion, which is used in so many other areas, is especially justified here.”

DHS said it will continue to focus its enforcement resources on removing people who pose a national security or public safety risk, including immigrants convicted of crimes, violent criminals, felons, and repeat immigration law offenders. "Today’s action further enhances the Department’s ability to focus on these priority removals," it said. (Napolitano was discussing the immunity program on a conference call with reporters that began at 10:30 a.m.)

Obama isn't merely courting the Hispanic vote.

Obama, Holder and Napolitano are potentially adding 800,000 new voters for Democrats.

Without voter ID, who's going to stop the current illegals from voting?

Aren’t there any laws about these matters?
Could it be that the administration just gets to make this up as they go? WTF?

There is to be absolutely no deportation of any illegal now, unless they are a convicted criminal, period.

Just come in by the millions, commit crimes and when we catch the criminals maybe we’ll do something, otherwise we are now open as the official Disneyworld for everyone from everywhere else, no questions asked.

I’ve decided that I want gun laws enforced in a ‘firm and sensible manner’. In my case, I’ve decided that means that I can have a SBR, full auto with a suppressor, and I don’t want a tax stamp or government approval.

If laws enacted by congress aren’t needed for a change in immigration laws, then WTF, I have as much standing as this idiot does. I say we just have all laws be subject to the individual’s interpretation. Congress needs to set their foot down, and remove these autocrats from office. They don’t just decide what and how they are going to enforce or not enforce laws. Their RESPONSIBILITY is to enforce them as written, not decide what to enforce. Get them out....NOW

States can’t enforce immigration laws, or purge voter roles, Black panther members can guard polls, and now millions of illegals can stay, take jobs (and vote). Is that about the size of it?

‘Deferred Action Process’

Translation: Failiure to execute the law of the land.

PLEASE follow this. It is NOT 800,000.

Those are the over 16 year olds who came here as kids. BUT they are not going to deport ANY kids, which means they are not deporting any family with kids!

AND they are “focusing” on criminals and terrorists only.

It’s not 800,000, it is all of them. Every single one is being allowed to remain, you just can’t legally work till you are 16.

America has been disassembled, it’s gone.

Why not call it a “pathway to non-deportation”? That way there would be FReepers lining up to back her for the GOP nomination.

Congress has the power to define uniform rules of naturalization, but the President can decide what to enforce. Where Obama overreaches is the part about authorizing illegal aliens to work, since their criminal status isn't resolved yet. I'm afraid that Obama may try to get around Congress by declaring a massive pardon of illegal aliens, the way that Carter gave pardons to Vietnam War draft dodgers.

‘Deferred Action Process’? Try “Tax increase”, cause somebody has to pay for education, healthcare, free lunch programs, Obamaphones, and all the entitlements these 20 millions will require.

I’m hoping Romney is working on a response. He needs to break away from Rubio and Jeb on this or he’s going to be toast.

this is the crack in the door Obama has been wanting. From here on it will be gradually widened until a few years from now, it will be the open borders democrats so dearly seek. Even if Obama loses, no one will try to undo the action because of Hispanic voting numbers. This must not stand.

Deferred action process? WTH is that?

I guess I never learned to speak lezbo or commie.

That ranks right up there with “Overseas Contingency Operation” for how you obfuscate what you really mean.

You can never trust the words used by Progressives (aka communists too chicken to tell you who they really are) as they are fantastic Word-Smiths. You can only tell what they really want to do by their actions but usually then it is too late to stop them.

My German and English ancestors waited in sometimes year-long lines, got on a hot, crowded, rickety ship, crossed the Atlantic and arrived at Ellis Island.

My wife’s English and Irish ancestors waited in sometimes year-long lines, got on a hot, crowded, rickety ship, crossed the Atlantic and arrived at Ellis Island.

There they were deloused, given a cursory medical exam, interrogated, their immigration papers checked and, with just what they were able to carry, took the ferry to the mainland to begin their lives as “Americans.” Those who did not have a complete grasp of English soon undertook formal and informal of the native language and the rest, as they say, is history.
That’s how it USED TO BE DONE.

The 14th Amendment, INTENDED by the drafters to ONLY grant citizenship to emancipated slaves by overturning the Dred Scott decision, has been tortured beyond recognition by the radical left to also include so-called “anchor babies” born to Latinas who stroll across the border to download junior HERE to bypass all the normal immigration processes described above. As an intern in a San Diego ER, my late niece caught many of those babies as part of her OB/GYN training.

By executive fiat, today Obama just took the first step to COMPLETELY open our borders (trust me, it is the first step only!) His action makes FOOLS of those who, like our great-great grandparents, played by the rules. It also makes fools of those waiting in those overseas lines to come here THE RIGHT WAY!!!

A wag declared that a nation without borders is NOT A NATION!!

A Latino “immigration lawyer” on FNN this morning said that if Congress doesn’t like it, they can change the law. He went on to say “THEY DON’T HAVE THE GUTS.” Sadly, he’s right. But if these clowns on Jenkins’ Hill think those latinos (legal and illegal) are going to vote for the GOP, they should be careful to not let their minds wander: They’re too small to be out alone.

Not that it would do any good, I called my congresscritters’ (202-224-3121) this morning to ask when they plan to offer Articles of Impeachment for this, the Law of the Seas Treaty, the activities of Holder, et al, the waste of taxpayer bucks on the green jobs idiocy, etc., etc. I’ll spare you the entire list as it runs to a few hundred pages. If impeachment is not their plan, I asked them to have the decency to RESIGN as the first branch of this government is clearly no longer needed and Obama could use the bucks saved to help buy the coming “election” or perhaps resume his taxpayer funded World Tour.

Bottom line? If you are STILL unconvinced that this guy is a clear and present danger to YOUR way of life, you probably live in a refrigerator crate behind a vacant warehouse. And if that is NOT your current living condition, re-elect this guy and it shortly will be.

Are there any fine citizens remaining like those in the “Battle of Athens TN”?

Progressives have just about succeeded in rendering the ballot box mute. No wonder the lezbo head of DHS (aka America’s KGB) thinks defenders of the US Constitution are potential terrorists. I guess when you are in a criminal organization known as the Federal Government, you would view lovers of the Constitution as terrorists.

Time to shed all the lies and BS fed by the public school system and read a little Thomas Jefferson.

If progressives win this war, there is no turning back. They control what our children learn in public schools, what we see/read in the MSM and will use that brainwashing platform to insure they will never be threatened again by that old rag, the US Constitution.

Doublespeak is language that deliberately disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words.

Comparisons have been made between Doublespeak and Orwell's descriptions on political speech from his essays Politics and the English Language in which 'Unscrupulous politicians, advertisers, religionists, and other doublespeakers of whatever stripe continue to abuse language for manipulative purposes.

31PH7KDS36L__SL500_AA300_

Similarities can be observed in Orwell’s own definition of doublethink, from Nineteen Eighty-Four:

The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them....To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies.

Somewhere in the basement, in a little broom-closet-sized room of the Dept of Homeland [IN]Security, a pencil-necked, Geek works diligently at coming up with different words that the Clueless Big Sis can use confuse, deflect and dissemble the meaning of any issue or policy:

monkey-typing-R1

"War: Overseas Contingency Operations" --Check

"Islamic Jihadist Terrorist: Insurgents" -- Check

"Terrorism: Man-Caused Disaster" -- Check

Ah, let's see now, "Amnesty?"

I've got it, we'll call it: "Deferred Action Process!" -- Check
