We’ve long known the liberals in our government are dedicated to ignoring our laws and allowing the illegal alien problem to continue unabated. Nothing has highlighted the federal government’s commitment to refusing to do its job like the lawsuit against Arizona for trying to maintain law and order in their own state.
For several years now we have seen liberals in both the Democrat and Republican Parties wrangle to extend amnesty to millions of illegal aliens–forever blocking our ability to remove these invaders who disregarded our laws, and inviting millions more to pour across the border in hopes of getting such a sweet deal.
Now Newsmax and other outlets are reporting on a draft memo written to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas by several agency staffers which looks at ways the Obama Administration might do an end-run around congressional authority and implement their own version of amnesty for illegals.
National Review has a copy of the memo which says that even in the absence of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” (a code phrase for amnesty) they can “reinterpret” past legal opinions to allow illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. One such “reinterpretation” involves granting “Parole In Place” or PIP to illegals.
The 11-page draft memo goes on in great detail about ways our government could creatively justify ignoring its duty to protect our borders and enforce law.
Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) sees it for end-run plan it is. From Newsmax:
Mr. Grassley said it confirms his fears that the administration is trying an end-run around Congress.
“This memo gives credence to our concerns that the administration will go to great lengths to circumvent Congress and unilaterally execute a backdoor amnesty plan,” Mr. Grassley said.
The memo acknowledges some of the tools could be costly and might even require asking Congress for more money.
At one point, the authors acknowledge that widespread use of “deferred action” – or using prosecutorial discretion not to deport someone – would be “a non-legislative version of ‘amnesty.’ “
The authors noted several options for deferred action, including targeting it to students who would be covered by the DREAM Act, a bill that’s been introduced in Congress.
So our lawless government not only insists on ignoring its duty to enforce law in our country, it will likely demand that the taxpayers cough up even more money to aid in its dereliction of duty.
My fellow Americans, let us resolve to do all we can (volunteering for campaigns, making campaign contributions, helping spread the word about good candidates, etc.) to remove as many of these liberals from our government in November…and do it again in 2012…and again in 2014 until all those who represent us in the federal government are only those committed to the U.S. Constitution and the protection of our nation.
