Within one month of Barack Obama’s one-man decision to sidestep congressional authority and declare amnesty by fiat, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Border Patrol union leadership has come forward reporting wide scale exploitation of Obama’s ‘dreamer’ policy and resulting chaos along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Prosecutorial discretion for dreamers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are if an alien says they went to high school, then let them go,” ICE union leader Chris Crane said at a press conference with conservative senators. “Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. … At this point we don’t even know why DHS has criteria at all, as there is no requirement or burden to prove anything on the part of the alien.”
Crane says ICE officers believe that a significant number of people who are not so-called ‘dreamers’ are taking advantage of Obama’s non-deportation policy to avoid arrest. Even criminals are being let go under the policy.
To make matters worse, immigration officers are “under threat of losing their jobs” it they defy Barack Obama.
Obamnesty is allowing illegal immigrants to avoid detention without any burden of proof and, boy, are illegal immigrants taking advantage!
By claiming (without any proof) to be the so-called “dreamers,” or those who would benefit under the failed “DREAM Act” legislation that was partially implanted by Obama earlier this summer, illegal immigrants are avoiding detainment AND deportation!
For three and a half years, the Obamnesty administration has been diligently working to undermine immigration enforcement and dismantle what little security exists along our southern border through allowing Mexican trucks to cross the border WITHOUT inspection, closing border stations, and through passing inane policies meant to keep border security and immigration agents — as well as law enforcement officers around the country — from doing their jobs!
The Associated Press obtained Homeland Security Department plans, marked “not for distribution,” describing steps that illegal immigrants will need to take (like paying a $465 paperwork fee designed to offset the program’s costs) as well as how the program will be managed by 1,400 new federal employees and/or contractors. These documents reveal that Obama’s DREAM Act fiat could cost more than $585 million — and that’s just to grant temporary work permits for more than 1 million anticipated requests, a number that could easily double if not triple!We’re sure it’s just a coincidence that illegal immigrants can request a deportation waiver and simultaneously apply for a work permit STARTING AUGUST 15 — JUST SIX WEEKS BEFORE THE ELECTION!
