Department of Homeland Security Stacked With Pro-Amnesty Attorneys ^ | December 6, 2013 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 12/06/2013 12:51:04 PM PST by Kaslin

As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it's important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys before making his way to the Labor Department.

As a reminder:

Michelle Malkin dishes the dirt on Thomas Perez.

Recently the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, followed suit by hiring nearly a dozen pro-amnesty attorneys. DOJ whistleblower and attorney J. Christian Adams has the details:

Despite the sequester, the Department of Homeland Security has just completed a hiring blitz of attorneys to oversee and manage immigration litigation. Almost all of these new civil service attorney hires hail from an activist pro-amnesty and pro-asylum background. Sources within the Department of Homeland Security report that the process for hiring these new career civil service lawyers was unconventional and was conducted by an Obama political appointee within DHS.

The new attorneys have activist backgrounds with a variety of pro-amnesty groups such as the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), the Advancement Project, and open borders groups funded by the Tides Foundation.

PJ Media previously reported on attorney hires within the Justice Department Civil Rights Division in the Every Single One series. That series demonstrated that every single attorney hire had a leftist or Democrat activist pedigree. The Department of Justice Inspector General criticized those DOJ hiring procedures as producing ideological outcomes. PJ Media only obtained the resumes of DOJ hires after this publication was forced to sue Eric Holder in federal court under the Freedom of Information Act.

Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws.

The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.

To see exactly who these attorney's are, please read Adams' full post over at PJ Media.

While amnesty is sure to be the topic that gets the most attention from lawmakers next year, criminal aliens and Mexican drug cartel activity continues to be ignored in Washington D.C. ICE Council President Chris Crane has repeatedly urged Congress to seriously examine these elements.

"We aren't even scratching the surface on the criminal illegal alien problem in the United States," Crane said earlier this year. "That part [cartels] is absent from this discussion as are many parts of this....we know that the drug cartels, that the lieutenants and the troops, the soldiers, they're all within the interior of United States and they're all conducting business as are many other criminal elements and criminal individuals. There are people coming here for this to be a land of opportunity and there are people coming here because the United States for them is a target of opportunity and we believe there is a very disproportionate number of criminals coming into the United States. That conversation is almost completely absent from this entire public conversation about what's happening....It's just another part of this debate that gives us this concern that this is all about politics and not about really fixing the problems that we face within our broken immigration system and providing for what is best for everyone is best for America to include and most importantly, public safety."

House Speaker John Boehner has said if immigration reform legislation is introduced, it will be through smaller proposals, not in a comprehensive, overwhelming fashion.

The goal is obvious. Regardless of what any Immigration legislation says, it will be all open borders in its execution

Just say you want to be in the US and they let you in. They are now the law."

Actually this is really not all that new.

If you look closely almost everyone that zero surrounds himself with has a law degree in one form or another.

This is how criminals stay out of jail. They get crooked lawyers surrounding their every move.Hes been doing this for years.

Zeros handlers always know just how far they can go within or without the law. Rules and laws mean nothing to this regime. They simply avoid them ignore them or create new EO's to do what they want.

Their mission; a huge takeover by communist inspired devils of the country in every way,shape, fashion you can imagine. the takeover is well thought out in advance as was his candidacy.

Its up to us to stoop it.

I’ve been saying for a while that he’s insterting his players into key positions within all government agencies so if/when he does leave office, his legacy will continue without him. We’re long past hitting the restart button.
