Obama Regime waiving immigration law for certain illegal aliens – Quasi-Amnesty

(The Daily Caller) — President Barack Obama’s administration is quietly offering a quasi-amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants aiming to win reelection by mobilizing a wave of new Hispanic voters without alienating the populous at large, say supporters of stronger immigration law enforcement.  The new rules were quietly announced Friday with a new memo from top officials at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The “prosecutorial discretion” memo says officials need not enforce immigration laws if illegal immigrants are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military.

“They’re pushing the [immigration] agents to be even more lax, to go further in not enforcing the law,” said Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state. “At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work, this is more bad news coming from the Obama administration . . . [if the administration] really cared about putting Americans back to work, it would be vigorously enforcing the law,” he said.

“We think it is an excellent step,” said Laura Vasquez, at the Hispanic-advocacy group, La Raza, which pushed for the policies, and which is working with other groups to register Hispanics to vote in 2012. “What’s very important is how the prosecutorial discretion memo is implemented” on the streets, she said.

The Hispanic vote could be crucial in the 2012 election, because the Obama campaign hopes to offset its declining poll ratings by registering new Hispanic voters in crucial swing states, such as Virginia and North Carolina.

To boost the Hispanic vote, the administration has enlisted support from Hispanic media figures, appointed an experienced Hispanic political operative to run the political side of the Obama reelection campaign, and has maintained close ties to Hispanic advocacy groups, including La Raza. For example, La Raza’s former senior vice president and lobbyist, Cecilia Munoz, was hired by the Obama administration as director of intergovernmental affairs in 2009.

On Friday, officials at ICE announced several new administrative changes to immigration enforcement.

The primary document was the six-page “prosecutorial discretion” memo, which provided new reasons for officials to not deport illegal immigrants.

“When weighing whether an exercise of prosecutorial discretion may be warranted for a given alien, ICE officials, agents and attorneys should consider all relevant factors, including, but not limited to — the circumstances of the person’s arrival in the United States . . . particularly if the alien came to the United States as a young child; the Person’s pursuit of education . . . whether the person, or the person’s immediate relative, has served in the U.S. military,” said the memo.

“The factors are extremely broad and very troubling . . . [it] look like a stealth DREAM Act enforcement through non-enforcement,” said Kobach.  (read more)

    How can our overreaching government allow Mexico or any other country sue the State of Georgia, even though predominant Mexican illegal immigrant citizens are ignoring our sovereignty laws? This is a farce, of our nation’s constitutional rights, when the Obama administration as part of the open border zealots, allowing this humiliation on the majority of American people. Those laws are being implemented in States, thus Arizona Alabama; if Georgia is to save the welfare money and public services from being drained by foreign nationals? We can only save America from these abhorrent undertakings of meddling from Special Interest groups, by making Barack Obama a one-term president and throwing out his growing leftist policies. In many cases, that includes to some degree Republicans have ignored the laws handed down to us in the US Constitution. Our rights are dwindling away under current this administration. Emerging from the Republican Party is the TEA PARTY, that are millions of average Americans of every color and religion, joining in a national fight against Activist judges and the dark side of the Liberal movement.

    NOW THOSE ON THE WHITE HOUSE ARE JUSTIFYING OFFERING LENIENCY, IN A DE FACTO AMNESTY FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

    This is now the perfect time to insist on mandated policing laws. Republicans are offering this action of using E-Verify and Secure Communities, for the reduction of illegal aliens amongst us? Already upheld by the Supreme Court, both federal applications can start to track foreigners, who are stealing jobs and Secure communities to identify all criminal aliens once they are in the clutches of the local police. We must also stand with Georgia and Arizona who have enacted enforcement laws, sadly being reduced by the Obama’s leftist colleagues. Georgia, not the richest State is overrun by foreigners, who have illegally settled there and are involved in bleeding their public benefits. Why is it so different for Georgia to check the immigration status of people, when I have been stopped countless times and asked for my vehicle registration and driving license? Why is this federal case, when all it is about being “politically Correct” that has become a virulent policy, which we are, forced to conform too. Anything to pin on the moderates as racial profiling case and denying the people , to follow the “Rule of Law” not the made up stuff, played on us by Leftist judges making up their own States statutes or federal interpretations, from courts such as the 9th Circuit in San Francisco.

    Another issue that needs to be explained is our government supporting activist groups, who wish to see the demise of America, by overrunning our nation without a shot. There whole idea is a swarming mechanism, bringing in as many foreign nationals from South of the border with impunity. Taxpayer are fortunately being alerted, that they are forced by federal law, to cater to illegal aliens for low income housing, child care, free health treatment and education for all their millions of children. We are like moths to a financial flame drawing into America, the rejected from foreign governments. Yet why Americans and those here legally, don’t have the availability of free health care, as the debt collectors and credit laws, but chase us down like rats to pay Even while Americans are desperately trying to consolidate a home loans, refinance vehicles, illegal aliens collect welfare money, food stamps and in some States unemployment benefits. Every day more poverty finds a way through our mostly vulnerable border, while companies are sealing our fate by moving overseas or across our border, outsourcing jobs in other lands?

    WE MIGHT BE A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS, BUT WE ARE ALSO A NATION OF BENEVOLENT FOOLS. HAVE WE NOT LEARNED OUR LESSON YET? ARE WE TO TOLERATE OBAMA’S LIBERALS IN GOVERNMENT, DEMANDING WE OUTLAY 2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS TO ENACT ANOTHER MASS AMNESTY NIGHTMARE. ONLY THE TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP CAN SAVE US NOW.

    A reflection of our insanity is the statement of NumbersUSA website, for according to Judicial Watch, federal funding for the radical National Council of La Raza has doubled in the years since Pres. Barack Obama appointed former NCLR Vice President Cecilia Munoz as White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. Since joining the Administration in 2009, La Raza’s funding has increased from $4 million to $11.1 million, mostly coming from the Labor Department headed by former California Congresswoman and amnesty supporter Hilda Solis. As a Congresswoman, Hilda Solis regularly teamed up with La Raza for nationwide initiatives. “It is distressing to know that the intensely special-interest advocacy of this open-borders group operates with millions of dollars from taxpayers while the public-interest advocacy groups like NumbersUSA don’t get a penny from the government to fight for taxpayers and workers of all ethnicities,” said NumbersUSA President Roy Beck. “Instead, we rely on the personal, voluntary contributions of taxpayers to fight the open-borders agenda of these groups like La Raza which all citizens are coerced to support through their taxes.”

    Judicial Watch also noted that the National Council of La Raza wasn’t the only organization to gain with Munoz’s appointment. An offshoot of La Raza, Chicanos Por La Causa, has also received an increase in funding, receiving $18.3 million since Munoz’s appointment. La Raza uses funding from the federal government and other sources to provide social services, housing counseling and farm worker assistance to the Latino community. But they also spend a large chunk of money lobbying Congress for amnesty and protections for illegal aliens. While federal funding is not likely used for lobbying, it frees up other funds raised for lobbying efforts.

    According to OpenSecrets.org, the La Raza has spent more than $500,000 per year in lobbying each every year since 2006.

    Hasn’t the people had enough of these venomous lies spread by Liberal press every day, or the open border lobbyists pleading for compassion and favors at the same time. Many of our own people are living in poverty, so we need no more Immigration Reform bills, Sanctuary city laws? In the election of 2012, it will be jobs and the economy, but illegal immigration will be forcing its way to the surface and the issue will not be tucked under the rug. This will be a crucial vote for all Americans and legal residents not matter your political party or ethnic background. The TEA PARTY is producing huge waves of discontent in both parties, because they ready to fight for every birthright citizen and potential new American. They will not cave-in to either party, but will welcome all those against the silent invasion of illegal aliens. The TEA PARTY will reign in the radical organizations like La Raza, and will repudiate any chance of another Amnesty.

    We are no longer a nation based on law and haven’t been for some time.

    This is ok with Congress. If it weren’t, they would stop him.

    The new principle: it’s racist to enforce the law.

    Unless we throw him out along with the horse he rode in on, and establish a mechanism for cleaning out the leftist bureaucrats it won’t matter who occupies the White House.

    He is turning the entire nation into a Trojan horse.
