Amnesty By Government Diktat
Another manifestation of the Age of Obama...they'll decide which laws to enforce.
A memo surfaced today addressed to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas and written by his staffers that details steps the Obama administration is apparently to simply avoid deporting illegal aliens - what the memo called "a non-legislative version of amnesty."
It was obtained by Senator Chuck Grassley(R-IA).
It lists tools it says the administration has to "reduce the threat of removal" and details several in depth meetings that have been held on the matter, apparently on a fairly high level.
"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."
Now, riddle me this...a large part of the guv'mint's case against the State of Arizona and SB1070 deals with preemption, the idea that Congress makes the laws and the individual states can't bypass Congress.
Isn't Obama using his flunkies at ICE to do exactly that?
Like I said, Government by diktat.
