Obama Administration Ordering Release of Illegal Immigrants As Long As They SAY They Qualify For DREAM Act

A recent report from the Daily Caller highlights immigration officials claims that they are being forced to release illegal immigrants if they simply say they ‘went to high school’ or ‘have a GED’, requirements that would qualify them for the President’s new amnesty by executive order plan.

This is the equivalent of a police officer walking up to a bank robber and asking the person if they robbed the bank. If the thief says no, the police must release him.

It is a blatant compromise of national security, and I would love for somebody to explain how it does not also qualify as an impeachable offense.

The fact that President Obama granted amnesty to nearly 1 million illegal immigrants via an executive order was a stunning abuse of power in and of itself.  The fact that a suspected illegal immigrant can now go free just by claiming they qualify for the President’s plan virtually extends that amnesty to many more law-breakers.  And what are the odds that those who have no respect for the law of the land in the first place would simply lie in order to be released?

An excerpt from the Daily Caller report:

A top union official for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers said Thursday that President Barack Obama’s administration has ordered ICE agents to blindly — and without any evidence — believe illegal immigrants if they claim they qualify for Obama’s administrative DREAM Act.

Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, explained at a press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday afternoon how the new selective immigration law enforcement policy Obama announced during a White House Rose Garden speech in June is affecting the officers he represents.

“As we still wait on detailed guidance from the administration, it’s impossible to understand the full scope of the administration’s changes, but what we’ve seen so far concerns us greatly,” Crane, said. “As one example, prosecutorial discretion for DREAMers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are: If an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go.”

“Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything,” he continued. “Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria.”

 

Under the new orders, however, illegals can escape federal charges simply by claiming — whether it’s the truth or not — that they meet the DREAM Act rule’s requirements issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

ICE agents have claimed the new guidelines amount to a free pass for illegal aliens.  It condones law-breaking for those who are already law-breakers.


Also mentioned at the press conference was a specific example of the new rules at work. 

One example used focused on last week’s El Paso, Texas incident where an illegal alien was arrested after he physically assaulted a family member, tried to keep that person from calling police and was subsequently arrested by an ICE agent who was then assaulted by the illegal alien himself before trying to flee arresting officers. Under the new DREAM Act, this man was released without charge because he was under 30 and said he went to high school in the U.S.

McCubbin and Crane further illustrate that agents do not need any proof that illegal aliens went to high school or received a GED- their word is good enough under President Obama’s new DREAMer policy.

The man physically assaulted a family member and an agent, and was released based on the fact that he said he went to high school?

Doug Ross summarizes, “Folks, we are seeing the civil society unravel right before our eyes.”

He added, “If we don’t stop this madness in November, we may well have lost the Republic.”

Unbelievable.  It may already be lost…

Obama Tells New Group of Legal Immigrants Why We Should Reward Illegal Immigrants

July 5, 2012 at 7:17 am (Amnesty, DREAM Act, Eliseo Medina, Fourth of July, Illegal Immigrant, Independence Day, Legal Immigrant, Naturalization, Naturalized Citizens, President Obama, SEIU)

Leave it to President Obama to use the occasion of a naturalization ceremony for legal immigrants, AND the Fourth of July, to push for legislation that will reward those who have ignored the sovereignty of our nation and entered illegally.

Byron York reports:

President Obama marked the Independence Day holiday with a naturalization ceremony for immigrants who are serving in the United States military…

… But Obama did more than just welcome members of the military to American citizenship.  The naturalization ceremony took a political turn when the president defended his controversial decision to unilaterally enact some provisions of the DREAM Act — which would put illegal immigrants who came to this country at a young age on a path to citizenship, but which has failed to win passage in Congress — and also to renew his call for comprehensive immigration reform.

“We’re still perfecting our union, still extending the promise of America,” Obama told the group.  “That’s why, as another step forward, we’re lifting the shadow of deportation from serving — from deserving young people who were brought to this country as children.  It’s why we still need a DREAM Act — to keep talented young people who want to contribute to our society and serve our country.  It’s why we need — why America’s success demands — comprehensive immigration reform.”

How must it make a person feel, to have gone through the entire naturalization process over a series of years, to have followed the rules set forth by our nation’s laws to become a citizen of that nation, only to hear a congratulations speech from somebody which says that others who broke the law should get a free ride?

What’s more American than pushing for illegal votes from illegal immigrants?

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin refers to the DREAM Act as “a 2.1 million future Democrat voter recruitment drive” and as just another part of the progressive plan to “redraw the political map and secure a permanent ruling majority.”  But that number could easily expand to upwards of 6 million over the next decade, according to a GOP report.

Sound a little too conspiratorial?  Not so much…

Last election cycle saw the name Mi Familia Vota, a group that works in conjunction with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), perpetually appearing in stories of voter fraud.

Fraud and illegal immigration — what’s a few laws between Dems?

President and CEO of the Mi Familia Vota Education Fund (MFVEF), Cuc Vu, worked for nearly five years as Immigration Campaign Manager at the SEIU.  During that time, Vu worked closely with the SEIU’s newly minted international secretary-treasurer, Eliseo Medina.

Medina’s name should be familiar to Republicans.  While the media would like to portray Medina as a mild-mannered immigration advocate, he is actually a progressive with a dangerous immigration mindset.

Medina sent an email to supporters a couple of years ago, expressing staunch support for the DREAM Act amnesty bill.

“It’s essential we urge all Senators to vote yes on the DREAM Act amendment,” he wrote.

The email fittingly closed with the phrase, “¡Si se puede!” or “Yes we can!”

The blanket amnesty of illegals in our country is not just important to Medina on a personal level, but it is a crucial part of the Democrat plan to regain power, and possibly re-elect President Obama in 2012.

Medina previously served as a member of Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council and as honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.  As such, he used the platform of an America’s Future Now! Conference in 2009 to outline a plan for long-term Democrat rule through blanket amnesty.

“We reform the immigration laws; it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. If we have eight million new voters who care about, and will be voting, we will be creating a governing coalition for the long term.”

Republicans and Democrats sitting on the fence need to commit to voting “no” on this sham.  The DREAM Act could be the Obama administration’s dream come true, or a nightmare to law-abiding citizens of this nation.

Stunning Abuse of Power: Obama Signs Executive Order Granting Amnesty to Nearly 1 Million Illegals

June 15, 2012 at 11:35 am (2012 Election, Abuse, Amnesty, Congress, DREAM Act, Executive Order, Illegal Immigrant, Immigration, Latino, Power)

President Obama has issued a “deferred action” executive order which will halt the deportation of some younger illegal immigrants, providing them government issued work permits, and by extension granting them amnesty to stay in the United States despite their illegal means of entry.

The policy bypasses Congress, a tactic the President has used repeatedly, and achieves the goals set forth by the DREAM Act, a plan that creates a path to citizenship for young people who entered the country illegally, but have attended college or served in the military.

If you’re wondering about the motivation for such a move, don’t.  It is, much like his gay marriage ‘evolution’, a politically calculated move.

Via the Associated Press:

The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.

The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was to announce the new policy Friday, one week before President Barack Obama plans to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak to the group on Thursday.

Granting amnesty to illegals has long been a goal of the administration and the Democrats in general.  Illegals, individuals with no regard for United States immigration law (or in some circles, the Democrat base), may be the only path to victory for President Obama in 2012.

And it has been in the works for some time.  Take the case of Eliseo Medina, for example. 

Medina previously served as a member of Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council and as honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. As such, he used the platform of an America’s Future Now! Conference in 2009 to outline a plan for long-term Democrat rule through blanket amnesty.

“We reform the immigration laws; it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. If we have eight million new voters who care about, and will be voting, we will be creating a governing coalition for the long term.”


Think about that.  Democrats are trying to use people with no regard for U.S. law, to create a  long-term reign of government in the United States.

Not surprisingly, Medina is a strong advocate for the DREAM Act.  In September of 2010, Medina sent an email to supporters expressing staunch support for the DREAM Act amnesty bill.

“It’s essential we urge all Senators to vote yes on the DREAM Act amendment,” he wrote.

The email fittingly closed with the phrase, “¡Si se puede!” or “Yes we can!”

Also not surprisingly, around the same time Medina was hatching this plan, Obama was also pushing for non-legislative routes to amnesty via a memo between staff and the director of the Citizenship and Immigration Service.  In that memo was a revelation that the department was reviewing viable substitutes for comprehensive immigration reform; including rewriting legal opinions and reviewing executive orders, among other mechanisms for amnesty.

Of course, when confronted about that memo the USCIS basically laughed it off saying, ‘nothing to see here…


Part of their statement:

“Nobody should mistake deliberation and exchange of ideas for final decisions.”

And yet, here we are today, three years after this memo, granting amnesty via executive order.

Republicans in Congress responded to the memo via a letter to President Obama, part of which read:

“… the administration would be wise to abandon any plans for deferred action or parole for the illegal population. Such a move would further erode the American public’s confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books.”

What Republicans sometime forget is that the rule of law often trumps the political will for re-election in this administration.  While this may seem like amnesty and a dangerous immigration policy to most, it is simply a voter registration drive to the Democrats.

IRS Refunding Billions in Tax Dollars to Illegal Aliens – In Mexico

May 3, 2012 at 9:00 am (Dependents, Fraud, Illegal Immigrant, IRS, Mexico, President Obama, Tax Returns)

Let’s drop the i-word….  and add the f-word – Fraud.

Via Doug Ross:

Just when you thought your outrage-meter had pegged the needle, you come across a brand new atrocity courtesy of a government that is completely out-of-control.

…Investigative television reporter Bob Segall of Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR TV Channel 13, was contacted by a long-time central Indiana tax preparer, who blew the whistle on a multi-billion dollar tax fraud about which the IRS has done nothing, according to the TV news show video segment that aired on Monday.

“There is not a doubt in my mind there’s huge fraud taking place here,” he said, slowly flipping through the pages of a [heavily redacted] tax return… “We’re talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that’s taking place and no one is talking about it,” he said.

The scheme involves illegal immigrants that are filing tax returns, claiming child credits for multiple dependents under their support in “their” U.S. household, and collecting enormous cash refunds–such as one persons tax return that showed income of over $14,000, who collected a cash refund of over $10,300.

A multi-billion dollar fraud scheme designed to benefit illegal aliens?  Now, why would the Obama administration turn a blind eye to such activity?  Oh yea… it’s an election year.

Illegal Immigrant Running For President of Texas A&M Student Body

February 28, 2012 at 11:53 pm (Aggie, Illegal Immigrant, Immigration, Jose Luis Zelaya, Laws, Texas, Texas A and M, United States)

Don’t worry, he’s not illegal in his own mind.  He’s simply undocumented.

Via Chron.com:

Jose Luis Zelaya sat at a long table in front of a packed auditorium on the Texas A&M campus Thursday night, steadying his nerves for his second student body presidential debate.
The previous debate was carefully controlled, with a moderator asking each candidate the same question. But this time, he and the five other candidates would take questions submitted by fellow students.
One by one, the candidates expounded on a range of issues, including tuition, fees and student services. And then, toward the end of the debate, Zelaya got the question he dreaded most: How would his legal status play a role if he was elected president? It was an issue that none of his fellow candidates had raised during the campaign, despite knowing he was undocumented.

Okay, when the question you dread most is ‘hey, why are you currently breaking the law?’ then you shouldn’t be running for anything.  Ever.

It continues:

“I’m not running because I’m undocumented. I’m running because I’m an Aggie,” he said. “It’s just like, what if I was gay? Would they have asked me if being gay was going to play a role? If I was atheist, would they ask me those things? What does it take to be seen as a regular Aggie, not as an undocumented Aggie?”
That Zelaya is an illegal immigrant is no secret.

Actually, it’s not like that at all.  And there’s one simple reason for that.  Being gay or being an atheist is not illegal. 


What does it take to be seen as a regular Aggie?  How about becoming a legal Aggie?
