Illegal immigrants don’t have to prove they qualify for DREAM Act protections if they are arrested
Back in June Barack Obama issued an Executive Order which changed United States immigration policy and implemented a policy which both Republican and Democrat presidents were unable to get through the Congress–the DREAM Act. What the DREAM Act basically says is this; if you were brought into the United States illegally as a child and you have graduated highschool, are going to college, or served in the military you can stay in this country without fear of deportation. Amnesty was granted to a certain group of illegal aliens.
But according to the top union officials representing ICE agents there has been no clear policy handed down from the White House since the proclamation was issued, so without proper direction any illegal alien who has been arrested simply because his or her immigration status is in doubt is let go if that person claims to be protected under Barack Obama’s new DREAM Act.
As we still wait on detailed guidance from the administration, it’s impossible to understand the full scope of the administration’s changes, but what we’ve seen so far concerns us greatly,” Crane, said. “As one example, prosecutorial discretion for DREAMers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are: If an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go.
“Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything,” he continued. “Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria”
Any person who is arrested under the suspicion of being in the country illegally only has to tell ICE that he or she is protected by the DREAM Act and ICE automatically lets the person go, no further action is taken and no proof is needed to back up the claim. This is all because nobody on the border knows what the current immigration policy is or what the guidelines for deportation are, and let’s face it, this is exactly how Barack Obama wants it. There are not going to be any guidelines handed down from the White House because Barack Obama agrees with what is currently happening on our borders and he has no intention of changing it.
And if you watch the video below you will learn that just claiming DREAM Act protections without proof is enough to get people released from jail who are also facing additional crimes besides being in the country illegally.
