The Amnesty Memo

NRO

According to an internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services memo going the rounds of Capitol Hill and obtained by National Review, the agency is considering ways in which it could enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action” — that is, without the consent of the American people through a vote in Congress.

“This memorandum offers administrative relief options to . . . reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization,” it reads.

Also: “In the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, USCIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations, exercising discretion with regard to parole-in-place, deferred action and the issuance of Notices to Appear (NTA), and adopting significant process improvements.”

In recent weeks, Sen. Chuck Grassley and others in Congress have been pressing the administration to disavow rumors that a de facto amnesty is in the works, including in a letter to Department of Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano. “Since the senators first wrote to the president more than a month ago, we have not been reassured that the plans are just rumors, and we have every reason to believe that the memo is legitimate,” a Grassley spokesman tells NR. (NR contacted DHS, but a spokesman did not have a comment on the record.)

Many of the memo’s proposals are technical and fine-grained; for example, it suggests clarifying the immigration laws for “unaccompanied minors, and for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and other criminal activities.” It also proposes extending the “grace period” H-1B visa holders have between the expiration of their visa and the date they’re expected to leave the country.

With other ideas, however, USCIS is aiming big. Perhaps the most egregious suggestion is to “Increase the Use of Deferred Action.” “Deferred action,” as the memo defines it, “is an exercise of prosecutorial discretion not to pursue removal from the U.S. of a particular individual for a specific period of time.” For example, after Hurricane Katrina, the government decided not to remove illegal immigrants who’d been affected by the disaster.

The memo claims that there are no limits to USCIS’s ability to use deferred action, but warns that using this power indiscriminately would be “controversial, not to mention expensive.” The memo suggests using deferred action to exempt “particular groups” from removal — such as the illegal-immigrant high-school graduates who would fall under the DREAM Act (a measure that has been shot down repeatedly in Congress). The memo claims that the DREAM Act would cover “an estimated 50,000” individuals, though as many as 65,000 illegal immigrants graduate high school every year in the U.S.

In the immediate wake of the court decision blocking the Arizona immigration law yesterday, the memo is sure to create controversy — and the sense that the administration is bent on preserving and extending the nation’s de facto amnesty.

  1. Amnesty is a joke, and just a ploy to establish a seperate voting group for the libs. If you are in this country illegally then you need to be sent back where you came from, No amnesty, a criminal is a criminal- no social security that you haven’t paid into or earned- no free health care- no driver license- just an escorted ticket back. If you want in, do it the right way.

    • The Democratic Party is falling apart, so the only way to stay in power is to create new members.

  3. The Obama administration filed a lawsuit to stop a new law taking affect in Arizona that makes it a crime for Arizona employers to hire illegal aliens; has Obama’s lawsuit extended an invitation to illegal immigrants to illegally enter Arizona to seek employment?

    Any law that is enforced that stops illegal U.S. immigration, threatens socialist and communist agendas; both ideologies promulgate overburdening financially U.S. Government, local and state infrastructures to force economic and public chaos on Citizens. Marxists historically move on democracies when they are in Economic and Social Crisis. Obama’s refusal to enforce illegal immigration laws and secure the border is playing into the hands of the REDS. Obama’s Socialist/Marxist constituents, many in U.S. Government, intend to absorb into their ranks millions of illegal immigrants via Amnesty to force their leftist ideology on Americans—that mandate U.S. Citizens share their wealth with the masses—globally. Obama appears intended to leave the border open or so poorly secured, that 12 million more illegal immigrants can enter America, insuring Obama’s leftist constituency can find—several million (foreign born) residents to push for a Socialist America. Illegal immigrants now protest on America’s streets demanding U.S. Taxpayers pay for their education, health care and an array of other welfare costs.

    Openly some in the Obama Government admit they want to dismantle capitalism; that would result in most Americans becoming unemployed, many forever. Historically, under producing Marxist governments have made communism work at the onset—by eliminating civilian populations considered not critical, until they reach a number the communist government can support; and by cannibalizing assets seized from imprisoned and terminated Citizens. Are you a critical Citizen?

    Obama a red diaper baby—does not represent America or any country, but a Marxist ideology. Marxism—mandates crushing democracies, individualism and forcing socialism or worse on U.S. Citizens. If you look at Obama’s past life, he spent much of his time associating with Communists and Marxist groups and like individuals. Perhaps supporting a leftist agenda, Obama has succeeded in crippling the U.S. economy, forcing new taxes and regulatory costs on U.S. businesses to where Americans are afraid to invest, afraid to hire new employees. In 2011 Obama intends to hugely raise your taxes to pay for trillions in debt he continues to rack up imploding public welfare programs and government bureaucracies. In the midst of the worst recession since the Great Depression, Obama forced mandated unaffordable health insurance costs on Americans.

    Increasingly Americans believe Obama is trying to destroy the United States economically, making it impossible for the U.S. to pay for a sufficient military defense, to force America to subordinate to a global form of socialist government. Whether or not that is true, what might happen to America if it can’t afford a strong military defense? What would Communist China do?

    Historically, when leftists like Obama have been elected to government, they—target democracies by appointing to courts and judicial bodies, individuals that might help in the destruction of a nation to advance their leftist ideology. (Kagan)? Many believe Obama in the White House is a threat to National Security. Obama took an oath as President to uphold the Constitution but did Obama lie, commit fraud to move into the White House? While Americans talk about impeachment, consideration should be given to investigating Obama for Treason if he has directly or covertly supported communist activity since being elected President. Communism calls for the destruction of the U.S. Constitution. Not long ago, it was common in American to arrest promulgators of communism. Perhaps that should be revisited…

    Should Obama politically, keep his hands off your children?

    U.S. schoolteachers now instruct their youngest pupils to sing songs about him. Robin Hood he is not, but he does take money from Citizens to give it to others. His name is Barack Obama. One need only look to the White House to confirm how a promulgated ideology (socialism) can influence a child and destroy a nation. If Obama-ism is not stopped it will spread like a disease infecting our youth, inspiring a form of Marxist-socialism that will destroy the quality of life for Americans. Let there be no doubt Patriots are at War with those in our nation that intend a rein of RED TERROR on the principals that made America great.

    If Obama’s leftists associations get their way (The Disclose Act), our Children will be brainwashed by Obama’s one-sided propaganda at school, through Obama controlled Radio, TV and Obama media policies that restrict the free flow of information. Meanwhile leftists relentlessly recruit children in grade and high schools to support leftist agendas most children don’t understand that call for the destruction of America and its Constitution.

    The majority of Americans have no U.S. Government. The Obama Government is not representative of the United States, its Constitution or the majority will of the People. Effectively the U.S. Government has been high jacked. Whether a leftist coup or a mixed form of fascism is taking place, remains to be seen. That may be determined after the November 2010 elections.
