DHS to give “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal immigrants
The Obama regime has been unable to enact any type of comprehensive immigration reform laws through the Congress so Barack Obama has implemented Plan B–grant amnesty to illegals through dictate.
It started when the Obama regime announced a new immigration policy which would basically decriminalize the act of entering this country illegally, granting amnesty to those who have broken the law to get here. Under this new policy an illegal immigrant does not face deportation for entering the country illegally unless they commit an additional crime once they are here. At that point it is too late and a crime which could have been prevented if the immigration laws were followed has now been enabled by this regime.
But Barack Obama and Janet Napolitano do not think that this law went far enough so they have implemented another guideline which implements “unlawful presence waivers” to all illegals who have a legal family member in America. It is now legal to enter the country illegally if the person entering illegally has a legally residing family member in the United States.
These new guidelines will open up the flood gates and allow a whole slew of illegal immigrants to pour over the border, obtain a waiver, and stay in the country legally at a time when so many legal residents and citizens are looking for work, and could use the jobs that these otherwise unwelcome visitors will now take. Barack Obama is acting on his own, without the approval of the Congress to overturn years of immigration laws and one has to wonder if the Congress is going to challenge him on this or allow him to rule through executive fiat.
