We probably shouldn’t be surprised that Team Obama was trying to pull a fast one
(Washington Times) The Obama administration quietly told Congress this week that its deportation amnesty programs will, in fact, include a pathway to citizenship, according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, who said that breaks a promise President Obama made to the country when he announced the program.
In a conference call with congressional staffers, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said it would allow so-called Dreamers applying for the deportation amnesty, known as DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, to also apply for “advance parole,” which is a separate program that also serves as a shortcut to a green card, which is the key step on the path to citizenship.
In a letter Friday to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Mr. Goodlatte demanded he put an end to the new program, which could open an avenue for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to bypass the regular rules and gain citizenship, which carries voting rights and eligibility for taxpayer-funded benefits.
And those two are what really matter to Democrats, because this would create more Democrat voters. Any consideration as to whether the program is good for the country, whether it makes a mockery of our immigration laws, whether it shows a complete lack of respect for those who have done things the right way, they are all meaningless to Obama and Democrats.
Current Dreamers who have applied for advance parole had an approval rate of 88 percent, which suggests a large number of the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants eligible for the new program will likely also be put on a path to citizenship.
Mr. Obama announced the program for Dreamers in June 2012, and began taking applications in August of that year. More than 600,000 persons who were brought to the U.S. as children have been approved.
In November, the president announced he would expand the program to lift age limits, and create a new program for illegal immigrant parents whose children are already U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. That program could apply to as many as 3.85 million illegal immigrants, the administration says — though it says only about half of those will be apply.
One of the big problems with the illegals is that there is a big question as to whether they really want to be part of the American experience, part of the great melting pot. Too many continuously push for the United States and its government, its people, and its companies to accommodate the illegals, rather than doing all they can to become American. They demand we speak their language, that we publish signs, papers, documents, etc, in their language. They demand governmental services. They often fly the Mexican flag, a nation they left and that doesn’t want them, above or in place of the American flag. They get upset when people where American flag clothes on Cinco de Mayo. They agitate over returning the American Southwest to Mexico (a country so many illegals left and which doesn’t want them). They demand schooling and free school funding. Medicare. Medicaid. Welfare. They don’t seem to mind that they bring 3rd world diseases. Everything is about “what can you do for me”, rather than here’s what I can do for America.
