Obama Now Offering Amnesty to Illegals in Jail, Will No Longer Deport Violent Convicted Criminals

Obama has changed federal immigration policy to force officials to discontinue the deportation of illegal aliens who have been arrested and/or convicted of violent crimes in the USA, a report now says.

This means Obama is purposefully allowing[1] murderers and rapists and other criminals to stay in the USA.

The Obama administration has ordered agents to begin ignoring many of the illegal immigrants they encounter in local prisons and jails, as the president begins to implement a lesser-known part of his deportation amnesty program — a move that’s not sitting well with either side in the immigration debate.

…Agents will still troll local prisons and jails looking for immigrants, but they will no longer try to deport those with drug possession offenses, theft or fraud if it involved stealing an identity in order to further their unlawful presence in the country, the House Judiciary Committee said Tuesday.

Even some illegal immigrants who have been charged with serious felonies but who are released by the local authorities won’t be picked up by immigration agents until they’re actually convicted, the committee said.

“President Obama is needlessly endangering our communities,” committee Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, said in a statement announcing his findings on the new program. “It’s past time for the Obama administration to get its priorities straight and protect the American people instead of their political interests.”

Obama is endangering every one of us by allowing violent criminals to stay in the USA.
