1.76M Illegal Aliens May Get ‘Dream’ Amnesty

From the instant revisionists at the Associated Press:

360K more illegal immigrants eligible for Obama’s deferred deportation program, group says

Wednesday August 8, 2012

(AP) WASHINGTON — About 350,000 more illegal immigrants than previously thought could earn an extra two years in the U.S. when President Obama’s new policy takes effect next week, according to the Migration Policy Institute.

Actually, the Migration Policy Institute’s report says that as many as 1.4 million illegal aliens could be ‘legalized’ under Obama’s recent amnesty diktat. (See three paragraphs down.)

Moreover, based on guidance the Homeland Security Department released Friday, the number could be as many as 1.76 million. (See four paragraphs down.) Which is more than double the Obama administration’s initial estimate of 800,000. (And, truth to tell, even this new number is absurdly low.)

So why is the AP emphasizing a far lower number in their headline and lead? This is a rhetorical question. The AP counts on the fact that most people only read the headlines. And, worse, they believe them.

Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, students age 30 or younger who are enrolled in school on the day they apply will now be eligible for a two-year reprieve from deportation if they demonstrate that they came to the U.S. before their 16th birthday; lived there for the past five years; and have not been convicted of certain crimes or pose a national security threat…

Obama’s policy takes effect Aug. 15, and the government will begin accepting applications for deferral that same day. The application includes a fee of $465 used to fund the program, though exemptions will be provided for minors, homeless youth and youth with chronic disabilities that fall below 150 percent of the U.S. poverty level…

We are supposed to believe that this application fee is going to cover the costs of this program. Even though there will be waivers for the poor and and disenfranchised.

The institute estimated in June that 1.4 million unauthorized immigrants could benefit from the program... Those estimates only included students who were enrolled in school as of that date.

Speaking Tuesday at a panel at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Doris Meissner, Director of the institute’s U.S. Immigration Policy Program, said as many as 1.76 million people could be eligible, based on new guidance the Homeland Security Department released Friday…

Sigh.

Still, we suppose we should be used to being lied to like this by now.

    I need to lie down

  2. So for approx $650M we can give citizenship to 1.4 million illegals. What a bargain! Can they get social security numbers/benefits? Can they get free education? Can they get welfare? Can they get disability? Can they get benefits that you or I couldn’t get even if we applied for them? Yes they can!!!

    And here’s how the waiver works. At the bottom of the application there is a checkbox. Next to the checkbox is the following tiny text. “Check here if you want to live in America. By checking here you place your automatic early vote for Barack Obama in November 2012 and 2016, and any fees for your admittance will be waived. If you fail to check this box your application will be summarily denied.

    If they great amnesty to illegals than be prepared for violence to rise beyond comprehension.

    It’s that little fear that keeps the already brazen ruthless gang bangers and thieves in check.

    Present Times are different. And this is where many Republicans and Democrats who like cheap labor put the almighty dollar above the little people. It’s not worth rape and death to those that live in lower class neighborhoods and see first hand daily.

    We have so many illegals from out of state working for contractors, and it makes it so dangerous as their crews pick up and leave.

    We have enough violence. Times are different. Things change. It’s time for people to wake up and take this serious.

    This is NOT a race issue. This must be handled openly and honestly, and a clear message. Yes, I’m sure you want a better life for you 8 children, but unfortunately just as violence has risen among every race, the gang and cartel situation is destroying our country. Americans that live here are entitled to great freedoms. But, by Freedom we do not mean we can allow the world to move here. We don’t have the room, law enforcement, or financial means to allow people to freely cross our borders.

    To be honest I’m sick of both the Democrats and Republicans saying “the middle class are the ones hurting.” And we know well over a decade ago, the fad was for Republicans to appeal to the illegals.
    That was along time ago. And it is the lower class who is so harmed by living in neighborhoods that have been cleaned by illegals. Ya threaten to call a cop, and your dog ends up on your porch cut into little pieces. Trash burning bans mean nothing to the illegals who roast pigs in a dug hole in their back yard. Pig heads your dog might drag home. And these scum have nice cars, expensive tattoos,
    4 wheelers, and I am not making fun of people overweight. But, the majority are so overweight. The free school food. Food stamps, and stealing pigs off farms.

    It is time to hear from the lower class Americans who can’t sleep at night. !

    “So why is the AP emphasizing a far lower number in their headline and lead? ”

    So when Obama gets more votes than are possible in a particular state they can say it was because of the underestimating of the number of tonks they made legal.

    What a wonderful way to steal an election.

    Where’s my Wild turkey?

    Obama sure seems to care about the unemployment rate – of foreign nationals. Hey, are they ever going to deport his illegal aunt or uncle?
