DHS chief says hes not deporting Dreamers, suggests Congress grant full legalization

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said Wednesday that his agents are not actively trying to deport illegal immigrant Dreamers, but pleaded with Congress to pass a bill granting them a more permanent legal status, saying only lawmakers can solve the problem. Mr. Kelly declined to take a position on whether the 2012 amnesty President Obama created for Dreamers is legal, but said the program, known in government circles as DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is still in effect. He said “illegals” who have been properly approved for DACA will be safe from deportation, but said those who haven’t applied, and some who were approved despite having criminal records that should make them ineligible, will be deported. One of those Dreamers, Jessica Colotl, will be in federal court Thursday asking a judge to reinstate her DACA status after it was revoked earlier this year. Her case could determine whether DACA is a discretionary grant that can be revoked, as the Obama and Trump administrations have argued, or whether it’s a right enforceable by the courts. “When my DACA status was taken away from me, it basically took my life away,” Ms. Colotl said on a conference call with reporters Wednesday. “It was an arbitrary decision. I had been granted DACA before and nothing about my circumstances had changed.”

BS we don’t reward the children of bank robbers with the stolen cash. Why should we reward the children brought here by their parents. Once they turn 21 they can apply to have their parents and other relatives become citizens as well. That is a back door amnesty and it will continue with others pulling the same stunts. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Amnesty!

Confused, is this person a ‘holdover’? The President has been very clear about this issue.

My guess is that we will hear about a new DHS appointee and the media will sweep this statement under the rug. Instead they will tell us that Trump is replacing him to increase surveillance domestically.

Because that’s how the media do. Screenshot this article, because it’ll disappear down the hole in 2 weeks.

????

What problem does that solve?

Its much easier to deport them now if they act up than if they get Green cards.

Fire him. He’s actively NOT forcing the law and though he won’t say it - admits it when he says the law needs to be changed to make them legal.

Fire him immediately!

Wonder if Kelly is being influenced by the current Marxist Pope? They need to get all of these illegals OUT of here!. Allow the “dreamers” and their PARENTS wind up staying!

A LOT of these people want to the Southwest to secede from the US and go back to Mexico. A lot of them have no respect for our laws, languages or customs.

SEND THEM BACK. If you want to come here, GET IN LINE!

Any policy towards illegals must - MUST - address the incentives that are set up by that policy. Are you incentivizing more to try their hand at illegal entry or are you incentivizing them to stay home and apply through the legal process?

With 600 million people south of our porous non-existent southern border and untold millions outside the Americas who might also avail themselves of this easy access, there can be only one immigration policy - Stop giving prizes for illegal entry.

Any measure that permits those who entered illegally to benefit from that illegal act is amnesty. And any amnesty will bring millions more invaders.

This must be stopped.

Will you help stop this?
You can help:
Right-click this image and save it. Post it on your Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts. Send a copy to your Senators and Reps right now and whenever you communicate with them. When you get fundraising solicitations, include a copy in your reply. Send copies to your friends and family and ask them to do likewise. Spread it everywhere.
