Obama Ends Deportation Of Illegal Alien ‘Parents’

From the Washington Times:

Obama adds to list of illegal immigrants not to deport: Parents

By Stephen Dinan | August 23, 2013

The Obama administration issued a policy late last week telling immigration agents to try not to arrest and deport illegal immigrant parents of minor children — a move that adds to the categories of people the administration is trying not to deport.

In a nine-page memo issued Friday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said agents should use “prosecutorial discretion” to try to avoid detaining parents and, if parents are detained, agents should make sure they have the ability to visit with their children or participate in family court proceedings.

So more illegal aliens have been given amnesty under the table. And notice that this memo was snuck out on a Friday, by ‘the most transparent administration in history.’

By the way, you would think this would be major news. But the only place where we have seen it reported is the Washington Times

The move won praise from immigrant rights groups who said it’s a step toward a kinder detention policy. But a top Republican blasted the memo as another effort by the Obama administration to circumvent the law.

“President Obama has once again abused his authority and unilaterally refused to enforce our current immigration laws by directing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to stop removing broad categories of unlawful immigrants,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican.

Obama is inventing new laws, selectively choosing to enforce laws he likes and ignoring or amending the ones he doesn’t like. All of which is highly illegal. But who is going to stop him?

Mr. Goodlatte, whose committee is in charge of many of the immigration bills the House could consider this year and who is working on a legalization bill for young illegal immigrants, said the Obama administration’s move “poisons the debate” and shows that the president is trying to “politicize the issue” rather than work for a compromise bill.

No kidding.

It’s not clear how many illegal immigrants could be aided by the latest guidance, nor how many parents already in the deportation pipeline could be released or transferred.

Don’t worry. They will release as many as possible.

However, some cases already bubbling up could be affected. Earlier this month, immigrant rights groups protested and managed to win a one-year stay of deportation for an illegal immigrant in Ohio who is the chief provider for his family, including a child with cerebral palsy…

Because it would just be impossible to take their child back home with them.

The memo issued last week instructs ICE agents to give special consideration when they encounter an illegal immigrant who is a parent or legal guardian of a child…

Bruce Lesley, president of the First Focus Campaign for Children, said the only long-term solution is for Congress to pass a bill but the new policy helps in the meantime.

“The Family Interest Directive is a major victory for children, reducing the likelihood that immigration enforcement will tear families apart and reducing the harm to kids when separation is unavoidable,” he said in a statement.

Again, there is no reason why these families can’t all go home.

    How many illegals will quickly go out and get someone pregnant? “NO! You can’t deport me, my girlfriend is pregnant, on welfare, food stamps, disability, and social security. How will she survive without me?”

    There has to be some legal action that we the people can take against a president who has usurped power that is not his, and is breaking his oath of office on a regular basis? As he wipes his a$$ with the constitution and only selectively enforces laws that are already on the books.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. There is nothing wrong with out immigration system. The problem is that the laws already on the books aren’t being enforced. If you find them, deport them. They say we can’t deport 30 million aliens. Maybe not, but we can deport the ones we find, and let the rest of them decide whether it’s worth the risk to stay here while we’re looking for them. At the very least, it might cut down on the vehicular drunken homicide rate. Save a pedestrian… deport an illegal.

    ”There has to be some legal action that we the people can take against a president…”

    It’s called impeachment but you won’t find 5 republicans with the gonads to even utter the word much less do anything.

    As for deporting 30 million illegals; all that needs to be done is to braodcast on TV and radio, place signs up in every retail store and erect billboards in english and spanish that say;

    “You broke our laws by entering our country illegally. Now, as the merciful people that we americans are, we will allow you to go home without charge. If you do not leave you will face a mandentory 5 years in prison in our new island prison located off the coast of Alaska. There will be no guards and no supplies. You have 30 days. This is your only warning.”

    28 million people would leave in a week.

      I agree with the assessment of our “representatives”, but impeachment isn’t the answer. Look at all the good it did to impeach Clinton for actions to which he was clearly and undeniably guilty. It made him a friggin’ folk hero… AND TO WOMEN no less!??? wtf?

      But even beyond the anatomical deficiencies of our elected overlords, the justice department is the big stumbling block. With Eric “The Holdup” Holder in charge, the only people who are being hunted down to face justice are states who want to ask for ID at the polls, states who want to protect their own borders, and tea party groups who have the unmitigated gall to disagree with our glorious leader. It’s like asking Toto to betray Dorothy… Lassie to betray Li’l Timmy… Scooby Doo to betray Shaggy. “Sit Holder… sit. Good dog… have a Scooby snack.”

      Of course you are right. But what recourse do we have then? I suppose we could take up arms, but most couldn’t stomach what that really entails and would whither at the thought of what must be done.

      So we must be civilized, although they aren’t. We must play by their rules, and just take it when they cheat.

      Our problem is we have no conservative leadership. We have plenty of mouthpieces but noone willing to take the arrows that must be taken in order to stand up and call a spade a spade.

      Noooooo….We take the high road hoping the public will come to its senses and recognize the error of their ways. I have news for ya…that ain’t gonna happen. The public is stupid and growing ever dumber. So we must stoop. Ever so slightly. Stoop to the level it takes to win. Play by their rules and not our gandiose version of gentlemanly etiquette. No more Queensbury Rules. Kick ’em in the balls!

      Call them liars on live TV to their faces. Call them out. everytime they open their mouth, shout them down. Go into black neighborhoods and tell them what the democrats have done to them and don’t mince words. Talk about school choice and abortion clinics in their neighborhoods. Tell them who Margaret Sanger was and how her plans of eugenics is wiping out their race and how they’ve been manipulated into thinking they are making the choice.

      Don’t back down no matter what they say or do. Every time you see one on the street, get right in their face and accuse them of murdering children. Do what they do. Shout! Scream! Take a dump on a government car! Make fake videos of them sleeping with horses and distribute them all over social media.

      Fight dammit. Fight!!! No mercy. Progressivism is a virus and we must wipe it out completely or it will return with immunity.

      This is the kind of fight I’m talking about. James O’Keefe and the Veritas project are playing by the lefts rules and it’s driving them moonbat crazy. This is how it’s done.

      Project Veritas confronts former US Attorney Jim Letten at Tulane University, where he is now employed as a dean at the law school

      Letten resigned in disgrace when his office was found attempting to manipulate open trials by disparaging the reputation of defendants on online public forums.


      We can turn their tactics on them and they will go ballistic and show their true colors. We’ve had decades of practice facing their tactics, but they have never had any experience facing this kind of onslaught and are bewildered at how to deal with it. We can crush them with their own mill stones. Fight fire with a flamethrower.

      O’Keefe represents a new era. Let’s hope there are thousands like him.

      Impeachment as in ‘remove from office’ and try him for crimes against the Nation. Not just the faux slap on the wrist impeachment,.
