Obama administration to offer immunity to up to 800,000 illegals
The Obama Administration will stop deporting and issue work permits to as many as 800,000 young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have never committed a crime, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said Friday.This is just an end run around congress to implement the "Dream Act" that has been rejected by congress over and over.
Napolitano said the change is needed to ensure enforcement resources are not expended on “low-priority cases” and are instead focused on people who “meet enforcement priorities.” But the move angered Republicans, who viewed it as an overreach by the administration on a matter that should be addressed legislatively.
“Today, I am announcing that effective immediately, young people brought to U.S. by no fault of their own and meet several criteria no longer are removed from country or entered into removal proceedings,” Napolitano said in a conference call with reporters.
The election-year announcement was met with surprise and question by GOP lawmakers, while raised by at least one leading Capitol Hill Democrat.
“This is another example of executive overreach,” Florida Rep. Allen West told Fox News.
West said he just learned about the policy change and that such a move should have come through legislation on Capitol Hill where it could be debated.
“That’s how we do business in the United States,” said West, R-Fla.
Kind of interesting that this comes about after the DOJ bars Texas from implementing their voter ID law and sues Florida for purging ineligible voters from registration rolls.
Come on, everybody knows what's going on here, the Dem's are fattening the pool of potential voters. Under these conditions anyone can go in and vote...citizen or not.
This is a shamless theft of the vote of the people and something we shouldn't sit still for, Obama and the Democrats need to be voted out in November.
