Is there any law this asshole won’t ignore?
The Homeland Security Department said Thursday it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria such as attending school, having family in the military or are primarily responsible for other family members’ care.
Anchor babies, attending school after illegal entry, and taking care of other illegal family members, qualifies as an exemption from the law.
The move, announced in letters to Congress, won immediate praise from Hispanic activists and Democrats who had chided President Obama for months for the pace of deportations and had argued he had authority to exempt broad swaths of illegal immigrants from deportation. “Today’s announcement shows that this president is willing to put muscle behind his words and to use his power to intervene when the lives of good people are being ruined by bad laws,” said Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, Illinois Democrat.
In the letters to Congress, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said her department and the Justice Department will review all ongoing cases and see who meets the new criteria on a case-by-case basis.
“This case-by-case approach will enhance public safety,” she said. “Immigration judges will be able to more swiftly adjudicate high priority cases, such as those involving convicted felons.”
The new rules apply to those who have been apprehended and are in deportation proceedings, but have not been officially ordered out of the country by a judge. Miss Napolitano said a working group will try to come up with “guidance on how to provide for appropriate discretionary consideration” for “compelling cases” in those instances where someone has already been ordered deported.
On a “case-by-case approach”? They’re ALL here ILLEGALLY. According to Federal statutes they ARE felons. Obama, Holder, Napolitano, and everyone else in this regime doesn’t seem to have a problem ignoring Title 8 of the U.S. Code, sections 1324 and 1325. Those are federal statutes covering illegal aliens, illegal entry into the country, and those who hire, harbor, aid, and abet illegals. On the other hand, he’ll sue states that enforce U.S. immigration laws, decree that the authorities don’t have to obey the Federal statutes, and lets the New Black Panthers and the SEIU commit all the crimes they want, without fear of prosecution.
The regime in D.C. is totally out of control.
