In an precedented move, the Obama Administration has changed immigration law again, without going through Congress, and this change is the most dangerous to citizens to date. In an area of immigration that has a 70% fraud rate, asylum law has been loosened up even more, unconstitutionally. Obama promised he would use his pen and phone with the help of John Podesta and he has.
People with ties to terrorism can now seek asylum in the United States.
The federal government has the right to grant asylum on an individual basis, but it does NOT have the authority to make a sweeping change without Congress.
These Obama Administration changes make the rules so weak that Islamists with ties to terrorism that are ‘limited’ can be granted asylum.
Recently we reported that 30,000 Syrian refugees are awaiting asylum in the United States and we made note of the fact that jihadists are among them, not just jihadists, these people are the Mujahideen. The Obama Administration has smoothed the way for these refugees and others with tangental or limited ties to terrorist groups to be granted asylum in the United States – without congressional approval.
There is no way to know who these people are.
Two new exemptions to the Immigration and Nationality Act published Wednesday by the Departments of State and Homeland Security in the Federal Register will permit refugees who provided “insignificant” or “limited” material support for terror groups to be given consideration for asylum or refugee status, according to Politico.
It will immediately affect 3,000 people and an untold number awaiting deportation. Mr. Obama did say he doesn’t want any more deportations and that must mean even of people with ties to terrorism given this latest order.
Politico reported that “insignificant”, according to a DHS spokespersons, means support given by way of normal business, under pressure, or through family or humanitarian interactions.
Great! Any terrorist can now say s/he was merely helping them for humanitarian reasons.
Senator Leahy, however, said the old definition was too broad and this will help bring us back to our heritage of providing sanctuary. Leahy said tens of thousands of refugees would be helped. He has been fighting to get the 30,000 Syrian refugees to the United States.
