Obama Stopped Deporting Illegal ‘Caretakers’ In 2013

From the August 2013 archives of 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…

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…

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.

“FODs [field operations directors] shall continue to weigh whether an exercise of prosecutorial discretion may be warranted for a given alien and shall consider all relevant factors in this determination, including whether the alien is a parent or legal guardian of a USC [US citizens] or LPR [legal permanent residents] minor, or is a primary caretaker of a minor,” said the new memo, known as the Family Interest Directive…

As we noted yesterday, the Daily Caller reported: "[T]he number of migrants who cross the border in so-called “family units” has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrol’s data." Which came out in a document dump last Friday.

We already know that a lot of the ‘families’ currently streaming into the country are just made up. And this would also explain why illegal alien adults in the US are sending for kids to come join them. And it would also explain why illegal adults (some not even relatives) are all too happy to come forward to claim these kids.

So you have admit that Obama’s plan has worked brilliantly.
