Skip to comments.AP sources: Immunity offered to certain immigrants
Posted on 06/15/2012 7:17:36 AM PDT by artichokegrower
The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.

illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives AND ARE OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE.
WTF gives Obama this authority?
It’s only 800,000 . . . . is the fix in ?
I blame Rubio for this.
Talk about vote buying. Can you imagine the outcry had a GOP’er done something like this? These people have no shame.
Yet one more way to harm this country. We have plenty of young citizens unable to find jobs.
I was just saying, has to be many times that who voted for him in 2008 just to make up for using the n word all their lives. Hopefully those clowns have wised up.
Can they vote?
Think about this...if Obama is willing to give illegals immunity, what type of pardons will he issue when he looses the election? Can we count on Barack Hussein Obama to allow the prisons to be emptied during his lame duck session like Saddam Hussein did in Iraq? Will we see all of the minor felons come cascading out of our prisons so that he can equalize the social “injustice” of the past?
Maybe only 800,000 individuals but how many more who are connected to them by family ties? Mama,Pappa, aunts, uncles, grandma, grandpa, Cousin Juan, Cousin Manuel, Cousin.....on and on. Think not hundreds of thousands but millions! Whee! A free ride in the US of A all paid for in Obama Bucks...which are ripped from my unwilling pocket without my consent or congressional approval.
And what future president is gonna have the guts to overturn this EO????????????

There he goes again. The great pander out pandering again. This guy is the ultimate idiot our country has ever seen in office. We need to defeat him in November.
Well at least here in California we have a surplus state budget, state universities and colleges with ample room for new students and a Cal-Grant system waiting to provide scholarships to these new students. Oh wait. Never mind.
And I agree - the FOOL Rubio caused this pander. Republicans should know by now you can never out-pander a liberal democrat. Obama would've likely been able to skate thru the election by offering nothing more than vague promises to the latino community.
You’re right. We do need to beat him in November, but don’t hold your breath. There are a lot more moochers than there are us. I’m totally disgusted. Thinking about moving and starting my own country founded on our once beloved Constitution.
Report: Deportations hit record number

The Obama administration deported nearly 400,000 people last year a record with the number driven up by those tossed out for traffic violations and drunken driving, according to a report on Friday.
The focus on ousting those with relatively minor offenses raises questions about whether the administration has lived up to its promise to focus on deporting the most dangerous offenders, the Associated Press says.
During the fiscal year that ended in Sept. 30, 393,000 people were deported, and half of those were considered criminals. Of the criminal deportations, 7 percent were based on traffic violations, 23 percent were drug violations and 14 percent were drunken driving violations, according to an analysis by the AP.

I take these grants of rights to illegals as evidence that the government doesn’t give a damn about the people who are here legally. All citizens and legal aliens in this country have to shoulder the costs of the people who come here illegally.
“illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives”
As children they did not commit a crime and as deportee they may not be able to function in the land of their parents. I’m sure Obama is doing it for the election as he is doing it at a late hour of his first term. I understood what Rick Perry meant “have no heart”. I think the blame lies with government not controlling borders an immigration after amnesty in the 80’s. If you don’t enforce the laws for 30 years what can be expected.
Obummer just lost the election on this one. He may have bought a few votes, arguable ones he already has, but he further alienated 70% of the electorate.
good question. This guy is the dictator-in-chief.
In order to issue work permits, the applications, background checks, etc, etc must be done by bureaucrats. Time and money must be allocated for this purpose to set up a whole new gov’t organization for this purpose. These funds must be allocated by the house. All funding must originate in the House of Representatives. Let them pass a law that no money can be spent for this purpose from existing funds.
Secret report: Catch and release for low-priority illegals proposed
Border agencys draft policy includes prosecutorial discretion
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency charged with guarding the U.S. borders, has written a secret draft policy that would let its agents catch and release low-priority illegal immigrants rather than bring them in for processing and prosecution.
The policy was detailed in an internal memo obtained by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith and reviewed by The Washington Times, which confirmed the document.
According to the memo, the draft policy provides circumstances when to pursue enforcement actions and includes detailed discussion of several factors CBP personnel should consider when exercising discretion.
Opponents say it amounts to another backdoor amnesty for illegal immigrants
Rather than allow Border Patrol agents to do their job, the Obama administration instead would like them to roll out the welcome mat for illegal immigrants, Mr. Smith said. This catch and release policy undermines border security, our immigration system, and CBPs mission.
President Obama has called for a broad immigration bill that would legalize most illegal immigrants
“It is never a good idea to send the message, as the political class now does consistently, that there are no democratic means by which the people can restrain their rulers. As the (Democratic) pollster Pat Caddell pointed out, the logic of that is `pre-revolutionary.’”
Interview with Robert Costa of National Review in New York, New York, September 2, 2010.
After America: Get Ready for Armageddon, Mark Steyn
Where is the GOP?
” ... they (conservatives) fulfill the same function in the system as the first-year boys at wintry English boarding schools who for a tuppenceha’penny would agree to go and take the chill of the toilet seat in the unheated lavatories until the prefects were ready to stroll in and assume their rightful place. Republicans have gotten good at keeping the seat warm.” Ibid
Where is your god, Rombots? Here’s his issue.
What was it like a year or so ago when this first came out they said they were just talking about and it would never happen
Obama the First Dictator will be handing out bribes like this until the election. Our toothless, worthless geldings in Congress will wring their hands and whine about this gross abuse of power and gutting of the balance of powers as mandated in the Constitution but would rather have the talking points than do anything about this power grab by the Chicago thug in the White Hut.
Should God bless the USA by having him booted from office, Romney better show some leadership and rescind all of Obama’s executive decrees. In fact, he ought to campaign on this promise.
Most of these illegals probably reside in California, so I really don’t think it will affect the election, and once the word gets out, this will further motivate the voters on the right to come out and vote Obama out of office.
Again, they are NOT immigrants, they are by law, illegal aliens. NONE of them have led law-abiding laws since they’ve been here because BEING here is illegal, even if Obama declines to prosecute.
Further, declination of prosecution of one law-breaker vs another for the same offense, the only difference being age on illegal entrance seems to me unequal protection under the law. My guess is that legal challenges will be filed for the older criminals and the flood gates will open.

you know this is only for the press , behind the Obama curtain , it will any and all
THEY NEED TO DEPORT O BACK TO KENYA !
It sounds as if this was specifically written to cover OBAMA himself!
He must be getting concerned that Sherriff Joe's investigation into his counterfeit birth certificate is starting to get some serious attention.
Indeed. Those of us that said Obama would initiate amnesty without Congress were called tin foil hatters. Never happen! That would be Fort Sumpter!
Naturally it happens on a Friday.
