As you read this, keep in mind that Hillary Clinton wants to go “much further” than Barack Obama in violating immigration law.
While the courts have halted Obama amnesty for families of children brought here at an early age, all of Obama’s executive actions are still in effect and most of the illegal immigrants are here to stay.
Millions of people here illegally are safe from deportation, including criminal aliens. Deportations of criminal aliens were down 30% in the first six months of fy2015. Aliens whose home countries refuse to take them are released onto US streets after the maximum period of detention has been reached.
At a town hall in Des Moines in September, Barack Obama told illegal immigrants to apply illegally for federal school loans, loans which are funded by the U.S. taxpayer.
He is very generous with our money.
Barack Obama has blurred the lines between legal and illegal immigration since he came into office.
A guidance memorandum in July from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) prevented ICE from deporting most people here illegally.
A report by The Migration Policy Institute found that under Barack Obama’s memorandum only 13% of the illegal aliens in this country will be considered enforcement priorities. Everyone else stays. There will be no screening, no vetting, just approval for the 87% of new Democrats.
Illegal alien children are again pouring into the country and in some cases, the Federal government arranges to pick the children up in their home countries.
The Obama administration’s Police Task Force had a “recommendation” in May that law enforcement had to follow. Local police were no longer to report illegal alien felons to any agency that could deport them. Local, State and County law enforcement no longer has any jurisdiction over this class of criminal when it comes to deportation – Homeland Security has sole responsibility.
An internal memo in February advised border patrol agents in Arizona to stop apprehending drunk drivers in an effort to protect illegal immigrants who are driving drunk. The notice titled “Enforcement Options With Alcohol-Impaired Drivers” directs the 4,000-plus U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson, Arizona sector to “release” individuals under the influence and “allow them to go on their way.”
“There is no duty to detain the alcohol-impaired individual,” the memo says, “but if you do this option can raise potential liability for the agent and the agency.”
Another scenario tells Border Patrol agents the if they detain a drunk driver at the request of state or local law enforcement, it would pose the greatest liability for the agent and the agency. They would be at risk for a “civil lawsuit.”
In January, at the United States Conference of Mayors, Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson announced that he will violate the laws of this country which he swore to uphold. He declared that the only people who will be deported will be hardened criminals. No one will be detained because they are here illegally.
DHS’ “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants” was put into place in November of last year. They advised that Priority one aliens “must” be deported and they include – and only include – terrorists, spies, those caught at the border, gang members, felons and aggravated felons. It also advised law enforcement to use prosecutorial discretion even before stopping, detaining and arresting.
They were told to look for “extenuating circumstances involving the offense of conviction; extended length of time since the offense of conviction; length of time in the United States; military service; family or community ties in the United States; status as a victim, witness or plaintiff in civil or criminal proceedings; or compelling humanitarian factors such as poor health, age, pregnancy, a young child, or a seriously ill relative. These factors are not intended to be dispositive nor is this list intended to be exhaustive. Decisions should be based on the totality of the circumstances.”
Jeh Johson found a way to bring hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of new immigrants from Third World nations into the country without having to subject them to Customs and Border Patrol in October. The Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program (HFRP) reunites families, not only from Haiti but from Nicaragua, Honduras and anyone who says that’s where they come from. It will allow entry of thousands of Haitians alone, that doesn’t count the Hondurans and Nicaraguans.
There were memos that legalized anyone from Central America who claimed to be battered along with their children.
He made changes to the immigration system, allowing spouses of guest workers to find jobs, study at US universities, waiving penalties for illegal immigrant spouses or children of legal permanent residents.
The Washington Times reported that Jeh Johnson, DHS Chief, also scrapped the Secure Communities program that monitored state and local prisons for illegal immigrants.
“It is tremendously harder now to deport even criminals, much less garden-variety illegal aliens. They have truly dismembered the immigration enforcement system, from the Border Patrol to the immigration courts,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for stricter immigration controls, The Washington Times reported.
The only difference in not winning the court decisions is it’s not as permanent but he might violate the court orders anyway. The White House counsel are looking into it.
Obama lost but he wins and he has trampled the Constitution.
