White House loosens border rules for 2012
Daily Caller ^ | 6/20/11 | Neil Munro

Posted on 06/21/2011 3:20:41 AM PDT by markomalley

President Barack Obama’s administration is quietly offering a quasi-amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, while aiming to win reelection by mobilizing a wave of new Hispanic voters, say supporters of stronger immigration law enforcement.

The new rules were quietly announced Friday with a new memo from top officials at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The “prosecutorial discretion” memo says officials need not enforce immigration laws if illegal immigrants are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military.

“They’re pushing the [immigration] agents to be even more lax, to go further in not enforcing the law,” said Kris Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state. “At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work, this is more bad news coming from the Obama administration… [if the administration] really cared about putting Americans back to work, it would be vigorously enforcing the law,” said Kobach, who has helped legislators in several states draft local immigration-related laws.

“We think it is an excellent step,” said Laura Vasquez, at the Hispanic-advocacy group, La Raza, which pushed for the policies, and which is working with other groups to register Hispanics to vote in 2012. “What’s very important is how the prosecutorial discretion memo is implemented” on the streets, she said.

The Hispanic vote could be crucial in the 2012 election, because the Obama campaign hopes to offset its declining poll ratings by registering new Hispanic voters in crucial swing states, such as Virginia and North Carolina.

To boost the Hispanic vote, the administration has enlisted support from Hispanic media figures, appointed an experienced Hispanic political operative to run the political side of the Obama reelection campaign, and has maintained close ties to Hispanic advocacy groups, including La Raza. For example, La Raza’s former senior vice president and lobbyist, Cecilia Munoz, was hired by the Obama administration as director of intergovernmental affairs in 2009.

On Friday, officials at ICE announced several new administrative changes to immigration enforcement.

The primary document was the six-page “prosecutorial discretion” memo, which provided new reasons for officials to not deport illegal immigrants.

“When weighing whether an exercise of prosecutorial discretion may be warranted for a given alien, ICE officials, agents and attorneys should consider all relevant factors, including, but not limited to – the circumstances of the person’s arrival in the United States … particularly if the alien came to the United States as a young child; the Person’s pursuit of education… .. whether the person, or the person’s immediate relative, has served in the U.S. military,” said the memo.

“The factors are extremely broad and very troubling … [it] look like a stealth DREAM Act enforcement through non-enforcement,” said Kobach.

The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act has been repeatedly rejected by Congress from 2001 to 2010. “The deliberate non-enforcement of our immigration laws in this administration certainly seems politically motivated,” said Kobach, adding “how exactly they expect to win votes by doing this is beyond me.”

In practice, the new memo won’t make much of a difference because “ICE isn’t deporting people now,” said Jessica Vaughan, an analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies. While pleading limited resources, “they only [deport] individuals with criminal charges,” such as felonies or several misdemeanors, she said.

There are roughly 10 million illegal immigrants in the United States, of which roughly 7 million are working. Business and Democrat-allied advocacy groups have stoutly opposed federal and state efforts to identify and deport the immigrants, but public opposition has repeatedly stopped proposals – including the Obama-backed DREAM Act – to provide the illegal immigrants with amnesties and residency permits.

On Friday, officials also announced a new advisory panel intended “to implement policies stopping the [deportation and] removal of individuals charged with, but not convicted of, minor traffic offenses who have no other criminal history or egregious immigration violations.”

Advocates for illegal immigrants have long argued that police should not deport illegal immigrants who are identified following a traffic violation. “It is not a crime to be be here illegally,” claimed B. Loewe, a spokesman for the National Day Laborers Organizing Network. “Local law-enforcement enforcing immigration laws is a bad idea.”

“It is a misperception that local police are going out to pull people who look like immigrants on trumped-up traffic violations,” countered Vaughan. “They’re not removing people who made a right turn on red light without stopping, because you don’t get arrested for that.”

The agency also announced new training policies for immigration officials, a new policy to shield illegal immigrants from deportation if they seek police protection during a domestic violence episode, and a new form to be given to detained immigrants which tells them they can’t be detained for more than 48 hours by state officials.

These announcements are solutions in search of a problem, said Vaughan. For example, illegal immigrants who successfully show they are domestic violence victims already can get a “U Visa” under an established law, she said. “This is absolutely unheard of for a law enforcement agency to be told to practically apologize for doing its job” of enforcing the law,” she said.

Immigrant advocacy groups said they want to get more from the administration. “We’re continuing to work with the administration for them to show strong leadership and advancing immigration reform,” said Vasquez. “We think there are further steps the administration can take.” For example, the administration should allow people to stay in the United States while their immigration cases are settled, she said.

The administration should end the “Secure Communities” program, which allows state and local police to detain illegals for subsequent deportation by federal authorities, said Loewe. “Secure Communities is an experiment they unleashed on the public without any safeguards or regulations… local law-enforcement of immigration laws is a bad idea,” he said.

Tougher enforcement of immigration laws shouldn’t be used to combat high unemployment among poor Americans, he said. Instead, the government should start a major spending program to build schools and libraries, and levy taxes on major corporations. “When were talking about a drain on the economy,” he said, “we should look at the corporations that refuse to pay back their due.”

But the overall goal of the new memos is victory in the 2012 election, not law enforcement, said Vaughan. It is “kabuki theater… designed [by the administration] to send a signal to these groups that they are taking their concerns very seriously.”

“Latino voters are very engaged and watching carefully what is happening with immigration policies,” said Vasquez, “because they’re deeply effected by it, either because they know someone impacted by it, or themselves are impacted by it.”

At some point it must occur to the smart people in the Hispanic community that this would accelerate the decline of the US into just another third world dump of the sort they or their ancestors left behind. Either that or we’ll see some balkanization by and by.

Obama's stupidity never ends.....like when he told latinos to vote against "their enemies," as Midterm elections turned into a Democrat bloodbath.

Illegals are well-briefed on US law WRT getting on the gravy train----most of the US tax dollars they score are sent back home to Third World hellholes where they intend to retire.......as the US govt checks keep rolling in.

RIDING THE US GRAVY TRAIN An illegal alien w/ wife and five children violates our borders. He gets a job mowing lawns for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that low wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, so each year, he files an Income Tax Return to get "EITC---earned income credit" of up to $3,200 scot-free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent. He qualifies for food stamps and no deductible, no co-pay free health care. His children get free school breakfasts and lunches. The kids qualify for monthly SSI checks, faking ADD; the illegal and his wife get SSI if they fake being aged, blind or disabled; SSI qualifies them for Medicare. Plus illegals don't worry about pricey car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance, and qualify for relief from high energy bills. All that is collected with one identity.

========================================

REFERENCE NOTE Earned Income Tax Credit is available only to immigrant workers who obtain legal work status. But the law allows immigrants to claim EITC for up to three years prior to obtaining that status. Workers simply file a tax return for the years in which they were not legally eligible to work in the US. The most widespread abuse stems from the requirement that children live with the worker for more than six months of the year. IRS does little to verify the claim. Many immigrants claim non-existent children, or claim children who they’ve left behind with relatives. Those with two or more children and income below $32,121 could get as much as $4,008. It is estimated that illegals received $22 billion EITC.

==================================================

Illegals know their strength is is forming voting blocs to put pressure on lawmakers. They establish multiple identities.......AND ALL OF THEM VOTE.

Illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents these "impoverished immigrants" buy from itinerant document brokers for several thousand dollars.

THE LUCRATIVE PHONY ID BUSINESS----NORTH BERGEN, NJ -- July 21, 2006 -- Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, L/E said. The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker.

The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the US, passports and resident alien cards, said state police. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. Authorities wouldn't identify the NJ hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution from savage drug cartels operating in the US.

The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. L/E approached the Texas brothers when they returned to the NJ hotel and questioned them separately. The Texas brothers consented to a search.

Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.

All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 fake Social Security cards. ####

Oakland Police Dept Mug Shot: Mishel Caviness, Hayward, accused of
running a large-scale operation devoted to stealing people's identities.

HAYWARD, CALIFORNIA -- A Hayward woman has been charged with numerous felony counts for allegedly running an identity-theft operation that created fake Social Security and California identification cards, checks and credit cards. Mishel Caviness, 40, was arrested after an investigation by Oakland police and the U.S. Secret Service.

The probe began when an Oakland city employee reported in January that someone was fraudulently cashing her checks, according to police Officer Ryan Goodfellow and court records. Caviness was identified with the help of surveillance-camera footage from Bay Area stores, police said.

A search of her apartment on the 21000 block of Foothill Boulevard in Hayward last week uncovered a printing operation capable of making fake checks and credit cards, police said. Also found were 900 blank credit cards, personal information belonging to as many as 1,000 people, blank checks and computers, police said.

Alameda County prosecutors charged Caviness with forgery, identity theft, forgery of a driver's license and grand theft. She has a previous conviction for welfare fraud and told police that she is disabled and unemployed. She is being held at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin in lieu of $325,000 bail.

Nothing good has come from this plague of lawbreakers violating our borders. Karl Rove was WRONG----they came from hellholes whining about a "better life".....but that was a ruse. They DID NOT embrace democracy once they had a taste of it as Rove famously said. On the contrary, they are a national security threat-----and are conspiring to tear down democracy---and their home countries are helping them. Read on:

======================================

News reports say Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru and are conspiring to collude with The Anti-Defamation League, The American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigrant rights groups to infringe on US sovereignty to make laws as we see fit. The co-conspirators filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Georgia's law and are now asking a judge to halt the measure pending the outcome of their case.

===========================================

They only look like they're mowing our loans and flipping burgers in fast food joints. The main occupation of these hyphenated-separatists is creating chaos to divert attention from the Marxist Third World they are building on US soil.

These anti-American criminals consider the United States an invader state---a foreign power imposed on Third World hellholes. They arrogantly refuse to refer to the US by its legal name. The US is known by Mexicans as el Norte, (“the North”), el Otro Lado (“the Other Side”), or Gringolandia (the “Anglo Entity”).

Freud would have a field day with these people----that "warrior" mentality evidences a distinct lack of self esteem. They actually think we are "frail white people." That's what the Japanese thought. The same mistake Mexicans made with Texans. The disturbed left’s identity politics with its propensity to separate and balkanize America moves ahead apace with the era of Obama. You remember Obama? The post-racial president that was supposed to “heal” America? Yeah, that one.

Georgia won’t be part of the proposed Latino homeland of Aztlán, but Latino civil rights leaders from Phoenix will march and protest in different parts of Atlanta next week for immigration laws they view as unjust. “Latinos won’t stay at the back of the bus anymore. We are taking over this land and anybody who doesn’t like it should go back to Europe,” says Jorge Serrano of Take Back Aztlán. “Racism should not be tolerated anymore in this country. Trying to get rid of Latinos is nothing but racist,” says Cecilia Maldonado of Chicanos Unidos Arizona, who will be meeting with Latino civil rights leaders in Atlanta to propose national boycotts.

The “prosecutorial discretion” memo should be the first piece of evidence introduced in the liability lawsuit against Obama, Napolitano and ICE by the families of those murdered by the beneficiaries of this pandering policy. If laws allow for the prosecution/litigation of those who act in collusion with criminals, I fail to see how the Obama administration differs.

Why are we paying Congress??

Obama is ruling us with regulations and memo’s and special Executive orders.

We don’t need the Congress to confirm Obama appointments, he just makes a new Czar.
We don’t need Congress to pass Capo & Trade. Obama just get the EPA.
We don’t need Congress to pass the Dream act, Obama just writes a memo.
We don’t need Congress to pass a Budget, Obama just spends what he likes.
We don’t need Congress to give money to foreign countries, Obama just writes a check for 20 billion to the Arab Spring.
We dont need Congress to go to war, Obama just bombs anyone he likes or send in the drones.

What are we paying all those worthless political whores on the Hill for? We have the Emperor Obama.

wtf? corporations haven't paid their due? what about illegals that haven't paid anything?? and yet we're suppose to let more in... while pushing up more taxes??

as citizens, we have 3 forms of influence on the government that actually have impact.

1. demonstrations & voting
in a system rife with corruption to the point that IDs cannot be verified to insure the person voting hasn't voted 30 times that day, voting and demonstrations hold very little sway. blogs hold even less.

2. tax money
in a system where the fedgov prints more physical cash when it wants or just charges up the debt, your tax dollars have little impact. consider going Galt (stop working/paying in). would the fedgov care? no. in fact, it helps the dems as the fedgov receives less tax money and they will NOT slow their spending, driving the debt higher to the point of breaking.

3. the 2nd amendment
it's what the citizenry has left when the fedgov is out of control. how effective it is depends on the hearts & minds of the population and those serving the fedgov.

if there are other alternatives, i'd love to hear them.

The “prosecutorial discretion” amnesty memo says officials need not enforce immigration laws if illegal immigrants are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military.

At some point it must occur to the smart people in the Hispanic community that this would accelerate the decline of the US into just another third world dump of the sort they or their ancestors left behind

They don't care. What's important to them is that they control the territory and they don't have to obey gringo laws.

Get it? They consider themselves a nation - unlike the now lost and nationless white Anglo-Saxons, who think that group identification (um, "nationality") is thought-crime.

And balkanization "by and by"? What do you think we're living now?

Vote-crazed Obama's back-door amnesty: "US officials need NOT enforce immigration laws IF illegal immigrants are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military....."

So how will sap-happy Obama know which of their multiple identities they used to enroll and volunteer? And which of their identities will they use to obtain amnesty?

There is overwhelming proof illegals use multiple identities. Illegal Jose Madrigal, the Washington state rapist, had some 30 identities.

One thing 2008 candidates Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain had in common is that they voted to give retroactive Social Security benefits to illegal aliens who committed document fraud.

Amnesty Will Cost U.S. Taxpayers at Least $2.6 Trillion
Heritage Foundation | June 6, 2007 | Robert Rector

NOTE: Pres Bush had asked the Senate to reconsider S.1348 the defeated Senate amnesty bill. S.1348 would grant amnesty to nearly all illegal immigrants currently in the United States. Overall, the net cost to taxpayers is likely to be at least $2.6 trillion.

Illegal immigrants generally have very low education levels. 61 percent of illegal immigrant adults lack a high school diploma. Illegal immigrants have a poverty level that is roughly twice that of native-born Americans. The Senate's bill would offer amnesty and a path to citizenship to 12 to 12.5 million illegals currently in the U.S. In addition, its lax evidentiary standards would encourage millions more to apply for amnesty fraudulently. Because there is no numeric limit on the number of amnesties that could be granted under the bill, the actual numbers who would receive amnesty under the bill could be far higher. Eligibility for government benefits means that the former illegal immigrant or his family members obtains the same benefits as a U.S. citizen would have.

Children born within the United States to illegal immigrants, including Z visa holders, are potentially eligible for all welfare benefits from the moment of birth through the reat of their lives. In addition, adult Z visa holders and their foreign-born children will be eligible for medical care under the Medicaid Disproportionate Share Program. Z visa holders will be given lawful Social Security numbers which makes them eligible for two refundable tax credits: The Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit. These credits provides cash welfare assistance...

Irrespective of employment history, amnesty recipients will become eligible for 60 different federal welfare programs five years after receiving legal permanent residence. When the amnesty recipients reach retirement age, total benefits received will OUTSTRIP TAXES PAID BY ROUGHLY SEVEN TO ONE. (Excerpt) Read more at heritage.org

Here's a definitive immigration law.

To remain here illegally is a felony
Person must have means to sustain themselves economically
Must not be destined to be a burden on society
Must be of economic and social benefit to society
Must be of good character and have no criminal record.
Must have immigration authority and must have a record
Foreign visitors violating terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported
Those who aid illegal immigration will be sent to prison

These laws are rigorously enforced but not by the cruel Americanos. These are the immigrations laws of our southern neighbor Mexico.

Note that matricula consular cards used in the US are NOT accepted in Mexico---b/c they are easily falsified.

AND THE LATINO FRAUD BEATS ON

ITEM A federal grand jury Friday indicted four Vallejo women, including a county employee, on charges of bank fraud and identity theft. Among the accused is Jennifer Miller, 43, an accounting supervisor in the Solano County Health and Human Services Department. Miller abused her position to allegedly obtain names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and driver's license numbers of Solano County health and social services clients, including food stamp recipients, federal prosecutors said. Miller allegedly provided the stolen identities to accomplices who opened bank accounts in the names of the victims, prosecutors said. (Excerpt) Read more at timesheraldonline.com ...

ITEM They are taking over inner city councils---a wave of latino councilman earmarked tax funds for "immigrant" organizations----organizations that do not exist.

ITEM In another case, latinos were asked to pay up to $2000 to get approved for Section 8 housing subsidies---govt pays 75% of the rent---but the govt does not require payment for this.

ITEM> A latino councilman (whose father is a state Senator) got huge amounts of city and state funds for an organization run by the councilman's wife. She said she provided services to another organization---trouble is the second organization said they never heard of her.

That was in the "good old days" when America was allowed to protect her vital interests from from those who were threats to our national security.

Today, Obama's giving those who would destroy us a gilt-edged pass.

Well, the white Anglo-Saxons may be the first people who ever thunk themselves into extinction, cultural or otherwise. Will they ever shake off this reasoning or is the condition too strong? We’ll see.
