Obama To Expand DACA, Give Amnesty To ‘Caretakers’

From the Associated Press:

Obama mulls large-scale move on immigration

By ERICA WERNER | July 28, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act before November’s mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration.

So Obama is going to ‘grapple’ with the crisis at the border by giving work permits (really amnesty) to more of the millions of illegals already here. Yes, that will be sure to slow down the flood across the border.

Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed…

Only because it is a distraction and fundraising tool. Which is why the AP is also bringing up this nonsense.

Advocates and lawmakers who were in separate meetings Friday said that administration officials are weighing a range of options including… expanding Obama’s two-year-old directive that granted work permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as youths. That program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has been extended to more than 500,000 immigrants so far.

Remember how we were mocked for saying at the time Obama did DACA that he would soon expand it to include adults as well? Of course, it was an incredibly safe prediction.

[And amnesty advocates now want to include the] parents or legal guardians of U.S. citizen children (around 3.8 million people as of 2009, according to an analysis by Pew Research’s Hispanic Trends Project) and parents or legal guardians of DACA recipients (perhaps 500,000 to 1 million people, according to the Fair Immigration Reform Movement)…

Which was another prediction we made at the time Obama ‘gave us’ DACA. And, of course, we were mocked and attacked as racist fear-mongers.

But what a great system. Legalize the children, then you have to legalize their parents. And we are now going to see it played out again, with the newly arrived ‘unaccompanied alien children’ who will be given asylum.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., announced plans to use an oversight hearing on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency Tuesday to raise questions about Obama’s plans, which he warned could "worsen the border crisis and encourage many more to come." …

Does anyone doubt that? And does anyone doubt that this is exactly what Obama wants? It’s a win-win for him and the Democrats.
