For All Practical Purposes, We Now Have Open Borders Under Obama
Don’t take my word for it. Just read this quote from the president of the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, Chris Crane.
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,” he said at a press conference with GOP senators. “Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. … At this point we don’t even know why DHS has criteria at all, as there is no requirement or burden to prove anything on the part of the alien.
“We believe that significant numbers of people who are not dreamers are taking advantage of this practice to avoid arrest,” he said.
Crane cited one case in which, he said, an immigrant facing criminal charges was let go under the policy. Further, he complained that officers are “under threat of losing their jobs” if they defy the policy.
So, even if an illegal alien is caught, all he has to say is he went to high school and he has to be released without proof. In other words, who cares what the immigration laws say? Apparently, they no longer apply because Obama has decided he has the right to assert dictatorial powers in that area since he believes it might help him get elected. Whatever happened to the rule of law in this country? Oh, wait, we can all answer that question and we also know how to get it back: by voting the single worst President in American history out of office in November.
