Another rush job for the IRS!
Thank you very much for posting this...
If there are lawyers to assist in helping the affected immigrants why aren’t there lawyers to stop the flow of danger to regular healthy citizens?
Live by the letter of the law or else!
Citizens here from any other nation:
Oh you poor dear. What can we do to help? We'll bend over backwards to assist you any way we can!
In other words, "Attention criminals: Your status as an illegal will be rewarded. Not only that, but if you were ever here legally and can sneak back in, we will allow you to pretend you overstayed your visa and we will reward that lie with legal status."
In any sane world, we would not be rewarding criminal conduct. This is, however, an Obama world, and sanity is no longer relevant.
Quoting FRPR "Mojohemi" - December 30, 2007
I love humanity but, the federal government is deliberately turning a blind eye on the dangers marching across the border. Death and Disease coming over the border and who would know the difference.
... it is a miracle someone has not been infected with a deadly disease and spread it all across America ...
... you also must speak out to stop the people that have not be checked by doctors from entering and Possibly spreading a plague in America.
The news article includes
"99 illegal [aliens] arrested [as ...] federal agents swarmed meatpacking plant"
"hog and chicken confinement plants ... promise a decent wage and better life"
The administration is waging biological warfare against the American people.
Michael Savage is loudly yelling from his national evening program and very sincerely, SAVAGE has a new book available now, if they are not sold out ..., “The coming civil War” or maybe “stopping the coming Civil War”, is the title..
WAKE UP, FOLKS!!!
I am not sure this is as nefarious as it appears at first glance since this is only for the nationals who are already here. I guess it is so they don’t have to go back to their Ebola-ridden countries. I wish it had specified for those already here for a minimum of 21 days, though, so doesn’t apply to the sick ones.
