Dems Pretend They’ll Change UAC Law To Get The $4B

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Faster deportations? A possible border crisis deal

By ERICA WERNER and ALICIA A. CALDWELL | July 10, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Outlines of a possible compromise that would more quickly deport minors arriving from Central America emerged Thursday as part of President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion emergency request to address the immigration crisis on the nation’s southern border.

The AP’s headline and lead are completely misleading. How can there be "faster" deportations of these ‘minors’ when there have not been any deportations of these minors. None.

Republicans demanded speedier deportations, which the White House initially had supported but left out of its proposal after complaints from immigrant advocates and some Democrats. On Thursday, the top House and Senate Democrats pointedly left the door open to them.

"It’s not a deal-breaker," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. "Let them have their face-saver. But let us have the resources to do what we have to do." Her spokesman Drew Hammill later clarified that any changes "must ensure due process for these children." In the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said: "I’m not going to block anything. Let’s see what comes to the floor."

In other words, Pelosi and Reid are willing to say anything to give this $4 billion dollar slush fund to Obama. Which will end up in the pockets of pro-amnesty lawyers and judges and other Democrat operatives. But they know that not one damn thing will be done to change the ‘due process’ provision that allows these illegal aliens to stay in the US.

In fact, according to a report from yesterday from Reuters, Pelosi wants to give the same protections to ‘children’ from the contiguous country of Mexico: "House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday she would prefer the law be changed to give Mexican children the same protections as those from Central America. However, she said the issue should not stand in the way of quickly getting Obama the emergency funds he is seeking." — Of course, once Obama gets his $4 billion, then it will be a different story.

But why shouldn’t the law be changed to treat these illegal alien children the way we treat those from Mexico? Why should non-contiguous countries get better treatment than Mexico? It’s not fair.

But opposition arose late in the day from key Democratic senators, suggesting battles ahead before any deal could be struck. "I can assure you that I will fight tooth and nail changes in the Trafficking Victims Protection Act," Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy said at a hearing on the situation, referring to the law Republicans want to change…

Naturally, Mr. Leahy is pig-ignorant of the fact that the Trafficking Victims Protection Act has been changed four times since it was enacted in 2000.  (It was amended in 2003, 2006, 2008 and 2013.)

Indeed, the provision that Mr. Leahy considers to be so sacrosanct was not even added until 2008. When it was slipped in during a lame duck session over the Christmas holidays.
