GOP Ask About Backdoor Amnesty Memo

From Fox News:

GOP Lawmakers Want Explanation of Draft Memo on Amnesty for Thousands

A group of Republican senators have written top immigration officials in the Obama administration asking them to reveal whether large-scale plans are under way to provide a so-called non-legislative version of amnesty.

The lawmakers cite an 11-page draft document written by staff to the director of the Citizenship and Immigration Service that says they are reviewing several executive orders and other mechanisms that effectively would serve as a substitute for comprehensive immigration reforms.

You can read the full memo here (courtesy of National Review), and thereby eliminate any risk of taking things out of context. Oddly enough, it has yet to be posted on WikiLeaks.

The objective would be to promote “family unity, foster economic growth … and reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization."

Among the suggestions, the document offers proposals for rewriting legal opinions to allow unaccompanied minors, victims of human trafficking or extreme hardship and others who’ve overstayed their visas to remain in the U.S.

Everyone is Aunt Zeituni now.

For instance, the four aides who wrote the document told Director Alejandro N. Mayorkas that general counsel at the CIS has reinterpreted legal opinions of the definition of "admission" for those entering under "temporary protected status" — in the face of war or environmental disaster — so that they can change their status to stay in the United States permanently.

And, of course, “environmental disaster” would include ‘global warming,’ which we now know will cause untold millions to ‘migrate’ to the US from parts south.

"Opening this pathway will help thousands of applicants obtain lawful permanent residence without having to leave the U.S.," reads the memo, which was provided to Fox News by the office of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa…

And by “thousands” they mean millions.

Grassley and several other Republicans wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano on Monday asking for the number of deferrals and paroles granted in the past five years.

A second letter written last week to President Obama suggested that "the administration would be wise to abandon any plans for deferred action or parole for the illegal population. Such a move would further erode the American public’s confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books…

Hah! Good one.

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Friday [when asked about this memo] told Fox News that the White House doesn’t support amnesty. [See above.]

"And I think people that support comprehensive immigration reform don’t support amnesty either. What we need to do again is try to figure out how we’re going to secure our borders, deal with those that are here, but do it in a comprehensive way and do it at a federal level," he said.

Some lies are so big it takes a government spokesman (and a compliant media) to tell them.

For the record, whenever anyone in the Obama administration mentions the word “comprehensive” you know it means trouble. So far we have started down the road to socialized medicine in the guise of “comprehensive” healthcare reform. We have moved towards a command economy under “comprehensive” financial reform.

Similarly, “comprehensive” immigration reform will ultimately mean amnesty for any and all illegals who want to live in the United States.

    Redefining insanity (or socialism) one “comprehensive” plan at a time.

    There is no end to their destruction of our system. Their end-game is permanent power for them and the socialists. Time to stop thinking “it can’t happen here” because it IS happening!

    • BannedbytheTaliban says:

      It has been happening since the founding of the country, the gradual ebb of power from the hands of the people to the hands of the government. Obama got tired of waiting. The question is what can be done about it? Voting Republicans just slows down the process. They seem to have the same agenda, they are just more patient. It really is a Hobson’s choice. Do you want socialism now or later.

      Doctor Zero: The Shape of Things to Come

      Pretty much sums up what we know is ahead from the Ruling Class unless we take them down in November.

      A lot of the destruction is on auto-pilot already. People need to know that November isn’t just a check on Obama. I haven’t seen one candidate get over themselves yet and put this election into perspective. It’s simple, but not easy. This new Congress is going to need to actually “bring us back from the brink” as the idiot claims he did while in reality bringing us there. And they’re going to need to override his veto pen the whole time. Public and judicial support is going to have to remain strong all the way till 2012. It’s time for leaders, not coward politicians. It’s time for ‘cojones,’ in whoever they come.

      Because they fail and really the last line of defense falls on the freedom-loving individuals, where tolerance for the arrogant class seems dangerously low.

    • proreason says:

      Thanks for posting Doctor Zero’s excellent essay, tn,

      He’s good, but he doesn’t really convey the white hot intensity of the situation. It is far far worse than any conservative can even imagine.

      As we sleep, they subvert. While we eat, they take another freedom. Any one thing, not so bad. But what you don’t realize is that there are a thousand “one things” all happening concurrently.

      My sense of it is that we are on a river that is flowing quickly. Everybody knows it. Everybody knows the river is moving too fast. But what nobody realizes is that we are minutes away from Niagra Falls. Every little thing pushes us toward it. And we don’t even need to reach the falls for it to be too late. Once the current is fast enough, there is no turning back.

      And as we rush down the river, the ruling class constantly distracts us. Look there on the shore!! Crap and Tax. Look there at the next bend!! Sue a state over illegal immigration. Look there below the boat!! Comrade Sherrod is making waves!! They all seem important. They all are important. But we can’t forget that the boat is moving inexorably toward catastrophe. We can’t let the alarms, false or true, make us forget that the falls are minutes away.

      As we sleep, they subvert.

      November is more than critical. It is the fail safe point.

      But as you say, tn, November isn’t enough. That will be no time to relax. If the country only “holds on” between November and 2012, that too will be disaster. What is required is a MAJOR pushback. Of course, every pushback will be vetoed, but the Republicans HAVE to keep the pushbacks coming. At the very least, they will occupy the enemy.

      But of course, if we depend on the politicians, all will be lost. Most of them are panting hopeful members of the ruling class, no matter how good they talk in November.

      The people have to make it happen. November is step one. Step two will never happen if we don’t make it happen.

      While we sleep, they subvert.

    “Back door amnesty”?

    How’s that for transparency?

    “What we need to do again is try to figure out how we’re going to secure our borders…

    Enforce existing law!

    …deal with those that are here…

    Enforce existing law!

    …but do it in a comprehensive way and do it at a federal level.”

    Enforce existing federal law!

    [insert expletive here]

    The reason this regime (and the left in general) treats the American people as if they’re stupid is because they and their shameless, lying comrades in that monumental incongruity known as “the mainstream media” are worthless and stupid.

    And I mean that in a comprehensive way.

    • Right of the People says:

      Besides enforcing existing laws we need to stop “Catch and Release”. We catch a wet, send him before the judge then the judge releases them and gives them a court date to appear for their hearing. The irony of the whole mess is that while they are waiting to appear in court, they are not allowed to leave the country. Let me repeat that, THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY!

      So what we have now are a bunch of wets running around “legally” in the country because they can’t leave. Of course they never show for their hearing because they know they’ll be deported and if this is the second offense (or twenty-third for that matter) it is a felony and they are looking at jail time. Next thing you know Pedro or Paco or Maria or whoever have found a job, got welfare, whatever and are living the good life in the US of A.

      The other problem is over stays. Someone comes on a legal student visa to attend school. When they graduate or drop out or flunk out, their visa is no long valid and they are supposed to return from whence they came. A good portion of them though after living here for awhile decide the US is much better than the third world sh*thole they came from and just decide to stay. The schools are supposed to inform ICE when foreign students have graduated, flunked out, dropped out, etc but a lot of them don’t. I’m not sure if it is laziness, liberal “compassion”, just telling the gov to shove it or what but its a problem of epic proportions.

      FP You’re right we have the laws if only we would enforce them to their fullest. That hasn’t happened since Ike was in the Oval Office.

  5. oldpuppydixie says:

    Rather than write polite little letters begging information on the latest regime attempt to overturn the Constitution, republicans should be wall to wall on the airwaves, exposing this disgraceful power grab to the American public. Voters are mad. Taxpayers are mad. Republicans–super RINOs though far too many may be–are in position to decimate democrats in November. But an aggressive, hard core assault on the would-be dictator in the White House and his regime supporting and enabling minions throughout the DC political and media domain is absolutely necessary. Republican candidates must not only expose the left, they must become proud representatives of the conservative agenda the majority of Americans want enacted. Right now, from McConnell on down, the party has more members comfortably positioned under their desks than on FOX. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!!!!

    • jambon says:

      “Rather than write polite little letters begging information on the latest regime attempt to overturn the Constitution, republicans should be wall to wall on the airwaves, exposing this disgraceful power grab to the American public.”

      Problem is, the Republican party is full of nice, courteous, gallant people where the Democrat party is full of mean people. Nice, courteous, gallant people never win battles.

      Republicans and the GOP will have to modify their internal identity and take on some nasty traits to compete with the despicable methods embraced by the Democrats.

  6. wardmama4 says:

    There is a positive here – it wasn’t too long ago that this kind of un-Constitutional and backroom dealing treasonous behavior – would not even be exposed to the light of day – and certainly not while the Master of the Universe wannabe was still in office. So we are moving along and kudos to Grassley, et al and whoever got this memo out into the light of day.

    Seems to me – someone within the Thug Administration itself (maybe), does not seem too keen on the lengths that The Won is thinking and planning on going too.

    Maybe someone in DC is finally listening and/or hearing We The People – or maybe it’s God answering a few (million) prayers.

    People in Michigan have a chance to send President Obama a message August 3rd! http://mittromneycentral.com/2010/07/30/we-need-pete-hoekstra-as-michigans-next-governor-vote-august-3rd/

    President Obama is trying to knock down Michigan’s best chance at finally having a conservative governor, but we can’t let Obama win! The stakes of this election are simply too high!

    August 3rd is the most important day in Michigan politics in years! We need to do what we can to help make sure Michigan sends President Obama a message.

    Socialist Gibbs is invaluable to the Saul Alinsky practitioners to flip the meanings mid sentence and Noam Chomsky plain English into Socialist talking points of subversion.

    anyone disagree with my Progressive Liberal Socialist Democrat translator? Reform = Deform, Comprehensive = Socialist,
    a translation of Comprehensive Health Care Reform reads Socialist Health Care Deform = Socialist NObamaCare,
    a translation of Comprehensive Immigration Reform = Socialist Immigration Deform = illegal alien Amnesty.

    Americans are now engaged in Socialist Elena Kagan’s Final Conflict a civil war of economics. On one side are NObama = Progressive = Liberal = Socialist = Democrats with the Emphasis on Socialist, on the other are Capitalists.

    There is NO negotiating with a Socialist and electing Socialists has dire consequences for Capitalism, said Capitalism enshrined in the US Constitution & said Capitalism enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals true believers in Socialism would suppress Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness

  9. canary says:

    The head honcho is saying that the Immigration act of 1990 is incorrect.
    Illegal immigrants are now being called “non immigrants”.
    Then it says all non immigrants deserve “deferred action indefinitely”, and then it goes on to say “extend deferred action which is to be indefinitely”. So, that is quite a loophole.
    And very deceptive propaganda in saying that U.S. citizens serving in the military having their “non-immigrant spouses, ” being denied military benefits, housing, medical benefits, and being booted out to dangerous countries. And to pretend it’s happening while their U.S. citizen military spouse is at war is over the top.

    We Americans all know quite well about transparency with this Marxist Regime. Anything that this regime does with a back door policy is right up their alley. Here is what we are dealing with:
