Several weeks ago it was rumored that the Obama administration was going to provide amnesty to illegals through some sort of executive action without trying to pass legislation. A public announcement of this sort of action would ignite a firestorm of protest which would nullify any political advantage Obama could gain from Hispanic voters.
Now, however, it appears that a partial amnesty has been imposed through an apparently innocuous internal document at ICE. So far, this appears to have flown under the media radar. There has been limited reporting on the memo, but not on its implications. Once this first pass at amnesty has been successfully digested, it won't be long until other illegal categories will be granted amnesty through the same mechanism. Executive branch amnesty is here.
According to this article, "the Assistant Secretary of Immigration and Customs Enforcement -- known as ICE -- circulated an internal memo ordering officers not to arrest a broad range of illegal aliens he deems immune from 'mandatory detention,' according to watchdog public-interest group Judicial Watch...
'Field office directors 'should not expend detention resources on aliens who are known to be suffering from serious physical or mental illness, or who are disabled, elderly, pregnant, or nursing, or demonstrate that they are primary caretakers of children or an infirm person, or whose detention is otherwise not in the public interest,' according to a memorandum issued by ICE Assistant Secretary John Morton."
By using this approach, illegals won't be required to do anything to stay in this country. They're simply given a free pass. This first group includes all the illegals who need medical care, so the American taxpayer is now responsible for providing free medical care to anyone who can get across the border from anywhere else. Everyone should wake up to what's happening here.
