A NATION OF LAWS? INTERESTING CONCEPT THAT DOES NOT APPEAR TO APPLY TO ILLEGALS OR THE LA RAZA INFESTED OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.
THERE ARE ONLY EIGHT (8) STATES WITH A POPULATION GREATER THAN LOS ANGELES COUNTY WHERE 90% OF ALL SERVICE SECTOR AND CONSTRUCTION JOBS ARE HELD BY ILLEGALS USING STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS.
NEARLY ONE-THIRD OF ALL L.A. DRIVERS ARE ILLEGALS DRIVING ILLEGALLY, UNLICENSED AND UNINSURED.
OBAMA IS DETERMINED TO GET THE ILLEGALS’ VOTES BY PROMISING THEM OUR JOBS. HE’S SABOTAGED E-VERIFY TO DO SO, AND HIS SEC. of (illegal) LABOR IS LA RAZA SUPREMACIST HILDA SOLIS!
OBAMA’S AGENDA IS AMNESTY or continued NON-ENFORCEMENT until there are so many illegals voting, they will elect another LA RAZA SUPREMACIST like OBAMA!
“We should not forget that we are a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants,” Napolitano said.
DREAM Act stalled, Obama halts deportations for young illegal immigrants (+video)
Obama issued an executive order to halt the deportation of young immigrants brought to the US illegally. With Congress sharply divided on the DREAM Act, the politically charged move should help the president with Latino voters.
By Kevin Loria, Contributor / June 15, 2012
The administration has been under considerable pressure to take action on the behalf of young immigrants, as Congress has been sharply divided about the DREAM Act, proposed legislation that grants conditional residency to select young people brought to the US illegally.
The policy comes as a relief for thousands of young people who are caught in a difficult situation where they consider the United States home but don’t have legal residency. It also should help President Obama – locked in a difficult reelection battle – with Latino voters, who have criticized the administration’s deportation policies.
The new policy will not provide any pathway to permanent residency, but should energize both immigration activists and opponents as the election approaches.
In recent weeks, young activists who call themselves “dreamers” have occupied Obama campaign offices around the country to call for action.
The policy was announced Friday morning by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
“Effective immediately, young people who were brought to the US through no fault of their own as children and who meet certain criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of 2 years and that period will be subject to renewal,” she said.
Mr. Obama will address the issue Friday afternoon from the White House, but news of the executive order created excitement in the immigrant community.
Roberto Gonzalez, a leading expert on immigration issues at the University of Chicago, says, “Students are really excited. This is not the DREAM Act and doesn’t resolve everything for these students, but it’s a huge step forward for this community.”
Under the executive order, individuals need to be at least sixteen years old and no older than thirty to be eligible for the deferred action policy. They need to have been brought to the United States before they turned sixteen and need to have resided in the country for at least five continuous years before their application. They also need to be currently in school, or to have graduated from high school or gotten a G.E.D., or have been honorably discharged from the military.
Individuals will be ineligible if they have been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor, or multiple minor misdemeanors, or pose some other threat to national security.
Explaining the rationale for the executive order, Secretary Napolitano said that US immigration laws “are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case. Nor are they designed to remove productive young people to countries where they may not have lived or even speak the language.”
Officials described the order as an act of prosecutorial discretion that will help the federal government focus on higher priority immigration cases.
“This is not immunity, it is not amnesty, it is an exercise of discretion,” said Napolitano.
Napolitano also urged Congress to pass the DREAM Act and continue immigration reform.
Though the policy is effective immediately, senior administration officials said it would take about 60 days to set up the application process.
At that point, individuals not already undergoing deportation proceedings can voluntarily come forward to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), to which they must provide documentation showing that they meet the required criteria for deferred action. People already undergoing deportation proceedings need to present their documentation to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
After receiving a grant of deferred action, people can apply to USCIS for work authorizations, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
After two years, people who received a grant of deferred action can reapply through USCIS. People under age sixteen will be able to “age in” to the program, provided a future administration does not institute a new policy in the meantime. Administration officials said anyone who receives deferred action will be safe from prosecution for two years, no matter what.
“We should not forget that we are a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants,” Napolitano said.
The Obama administration has also cut worksite enforcement efforts by 70%, allowing illegal immigrants to continue working in jobs that rightfully belong to citizens and legal workers.
Lost in the media frenzy surrounding President Obama's decision to administratively implement the DREAM Act is the Administration's plans to also grant a reprieve to the illegal alien parents who brought them here in violation of U.S. immigration law. In doing so, the Administration is directly contradicting its own public relations campaign — and that of amnesty advocates nationwide — which has portrayed its new policy as a way to provide "a degree of relief" to "innocent young kids." (See White House transcript, June 15, 2012; to read more about the President's "deferred action" policy, see FAIR's Legislative Update, June 19, 2012)
The Administration's decision to not deport the illegal alien parents of so-called DREAMers was revealed by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano during a CNN interview. Here is the exchange between CNN Anchorman Wolf Blitzer and Secretary Napolitano:
BLITZER: What about the parents of these children? The children come forward now, they identify themselves. Should the parents be concerned that potentially they could be deported? They would now be identified as illegal immigrants.
NAPOLITANO: No. We are not going to do that. We have internally set it up so that the parents are not referred for immigration enforcement if the young person comes in for deferred action. However, the parents are not qualified for deferred action. This is for the young people who meet the criteria that we've set forth. (CNN transcript, June 15, 2012)
While Napolitano makes the distinction that the illegal alien parents will not qualify for "deferred action," the Administration's decision not to deport them essentially amounts to the same thing. The only major difference is that if the Department of Homeland Security simply administratively closes the parents' cases, it is uncertain whether it will grant the parents work authorization.
As if the President's new deferred action policy were not troubling enough itself, the decision not to deport the illegal alien parents of DREAMers could triple the number of illegal aliens who benefit from it. Excluding parents, the Pew Hispanic Center estimates that at least 1.4 million illegal aliens would qualify for deferred action under the President's new program. (See Pew Hispanic Center report, June 15, 2012) But with the Administration's acknowledgment that it will no longer deport the illegal alien parents of DREAMers, the size of the President's amnesty program could triple, or perhaps even quadruple, when fraudulent applications are taken into account.
THE ENTIRE REASON THE BORDERS ARE LEFT OPEN IS TO CUT WAGES!
"We could cut unemployment in half simply by reclaiming the jobs taken by illegal workers," said Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, co-chairman of the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. "President Obama is on the wrong side of the American people on immigration. The president should support policies that help citizens and legal immigrants find the jobs they need and deserve rather than fail to enforce immigration laws."

The truth about the DREAM Act
Published March 20, 2012
The DREAM Act has become a rallying cry for President Obama, members of his administration, and liberal Democrats everywhere. President Obama has vowed to “keep fighting for the DREAM Act,” which would grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.It’s true when listeners or those polled don’t know the facts that the DREAM Act has some appeal. After all, we are all naturally sympathetic when children are involved.
But the descriptions of the DREAM Act voiced by President Obama and his cohorts are not accurate. And the consequences are never told.
DREAM Act supporters claim that only children would benefit from such a bill, but the facts tell another story. Under most DREAM Act proposals, amnesty would be given to individuals up to the age of 30—not exactly children. And some other proposals don’t even have an age limit.
These supporters also maintain that illegal immigrants can’t go college without the DREAM Act. But the truth is that illegal immigrants can already go to college in most states.
And ultimately, most versions of the DREAM Act actually don’t even force illegal immigrants to comply with all the requirements in the bill, such as going to college or joining the military. The administration can waive requirements because of “hardship”at its complete discretion.
DREAM Act proposals are also a magnet for fraud. Many illegal immigrants will fraudulently claim they came here as children or that they are under 30. And the federal government has no way to check whether their claims are true or not.
Such massive fraud occurred after the 1986 amnesty for illegal immigrants who claimed they were agricultural workers. Studies found two-thirds of all applications for the 1986 amnesty were fraudulent.
(ANYONE THAT THINKS THERE ARE ONLY 11 MILLION ILLEGALS IN OUR BORDERS SHOULD COME VISIT CA! LOOK AROUND AND TRY TO FIND A NON-HISPANIC ENGLISH SPEAKING LEGAL! CA IS NOW 40% ILLEGAL. NEVADA IS NOW 33% ILLEGAL. COLORADO IS NOW 20% ILLEGAL. AND LA RAZA IS NOW MOVING INTO THE AMERICAN SOUTH)
And this amnesty did nothing to stop illegal immigration. In 1986, there were about three million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. Today, there are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and about seven million of them work here, unfairly taking jobs from unemployed Americans.
While DREAM Act supporters claim that it would only benefit children, they skip over the fact that it actually rewards the very illegal immigrant parents who knowingly violated our laws. Once their children become U.S. citizens, they can petition for their illegal immigrant parents and adult siblings to be legalized, who will then bring in others in an endless chain.
This kind of chain migration only encourages more illegal immigration, as parents will bring their children to the U.S. in hopes of receiving citizenship.
President Obama tried to get the DREAM Act passed during a lame duck session about a year ago but it faced bipartisan opposition in Congress. This hasn’t stopped the administration from passing its agenda. The Obama administration does everything it can to let illegal immigrants stay here, which compounds the problem.
Political appointees at the Department of Homeland Security recently issued new deportation guidelines that amount to backdoor amnesty and strike another blow at millions of unemployed U.S. workers.
Under the administration’s new deportation policy, DHS officials review all incoming and most pending cases before an immigration court to determine if the illegal immigrant can remain in the U.S. Since the administration has made clear that many illegal immigrants are not considered priorities for removal, including potential DREAM Act beneficiaries, this could open the door to allow millions of illegal immigrants to live and work in the U.S. without a vote of Congress.
The Obama administration has also cut worksite enforcement efforts by 70%, allowing illegal immigrants to continue working in jobs that rightfully belong to citizens and legal workers. And the list goes on and on – this administration has a pattern of ignoring the laws and intent of Congress.
The United States is based on the rule of law but the Obama administration already has dirty hands by abusing administrative authority to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. The DREAM Act doesn’t stop illegal immigration—it only encourages more of it by rewarding lawbreakers.

Obama is ready to sign up immigrants
Romney’s hands are tied on issue
The Washington Times
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants could become eligible for tentative legal status Wednesday when President Obama's non-deportation policy goes into effect, and after initial fears that the program would backfire, immigrant advocates are urging young immigrants to sign up.
Activists say the policy is the biggest change on immigration in decades, and it has roiled the political landscape, solidifying Mr. Obama's support among Hispanics and leaving presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney struggling to say what he would do.
On Tuesday, the Obama administration laid out final details, including relaxed education standards that set a low bar.
Under the rules, illegal immigrants in job training or who have enrolled in a GED course are eligible — a lesser requirement than obtaining a high school diploma or equivalency certificate.
The government begins taking applications Wednesday, and immigrant rights groups and members of Congress from both parties have scheduled legal clinics across the country to help determine whether immigrants qualify and to aid them in filling out the forms.
"Our job is to make sure that everyone who's eligible for this program knows about it and applies for it if they feel comfortable after weighing the risks and benefits," said Chung-Wha Hong, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition. "So far, the benefits have kind of outweighed the risks, based on the hundreds and thousands of people coming forward."
The policy halts deportations for illegal immigrants not above the age of 30 who were brought to the U.S. before age 16, who don't have a major criminal record, and who can show they have been in the country studying or in job training.
Those eligible for the policy are known as Dreamers, after the Dream Act — legislation that failed to pass Congress but would have granted them a path to citizenship.
The Obama policy does not offer a path to citizenship but rather "deferred action," a halt to potential deportations. Those who qualify also can obtain a permit to work in the U.S.
In certain states, that could be good enough to obtain a driver's license or in-state tuition at state schools, advocates said.
Republicans said it will push hundreds of thousands of new legal workers into an already tough job market, where they will compete with Americans.
They also said the administration is not requiring in-person interviews for applicants and is accepting affidavits for some requirements, which they said is an invitation to fraud.
"While potentially millions of illegal immigrants will be permitted to compete with American workers for jobs, there seems to be little if any mechanism in place for vetting fraudulent applications," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith and Sen. Chuck Grassley said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano.
The Homeland Security Department, which will process the applications, wouldn't guess how many applications it will receive.
But the latest estimate from the Migration Policy Institute says that as many as 1.76 million illegal immigrants could be eligible. Homeland Security estimates about 11 million illegal immigrants reside in the U.S. (MOST FIGURES ON ILLEGALS IN OUR BORDERS PUT THE NUMBER AT 40 MILLION AND BREEDING FAST!)
Officials have said they won't use any of the information gained from applications to try to deport those who are rejected, or to go after their families, who might still be illegally in the U.S. and fall outside of the program.
Some advocates, though, are wary.
(PROTECTING LA RAZA CRIMINALS:)
Casa de Maryland, which is helping applicants in Maryland, is warning those who might have criminal records not to sign up just yet: "If you have ANY history of an arrest, conviction or criminal conduct, you should not submit your application until we can confirm your eligibility," the group says in its guidance, adding that it will help those not eligible try to figure out ways to avoid deportation.
Much of the program's success will depend on immigrant rights advocates, who are trying to shepherd applicants away from money-making frauds and toward reputable groups.
DEPT of HOMELAND SECURITY UNDER LA RAZA NAPOLITANO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SECURITY! IT WORKS SOLELY FOR OPEN BORDERS, STEALTH AMNESTY AND PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP, AMERICAN JOBS AND VOTING BOOTHS!
"What I have seen, thank goodness, is a lot of very prestigious immigration groups that have been working on this are putting out exact information coming from the Department of Homeland Security," said Maryland state Delegate Ana Sol Gutierrez, a Democrat who has become a major advocate.
THE RISE OF THE LA RAZA WELFARE STATE SOARS UNDER HISPANDERING OBAMA!
Key questions remain, including whether those who qualify for the federal program also will be eligible for driver's licenses or in-state tuition at colleges and universities in states where illegal immigrants are currently denied those benefits.
Ms. Gutierrez said in Maryland, a work permit and the Social Security number that comes with it are enough to prove legal residency, which should make them eligible for licenses.
The reverberations are being felt well outside the immigrant community.
VIVA LA RAZA?
Hispanic voters rallied to Mr. Obama's side after his June announcement, and continue to give him high favorability ratings.
Mr. Romney, meanwhile, has steadfastly refused to say whether he would keep the policy in place if he wins the White House.
After repeated requests, his campaign Tuesday pointed to a speech he gave in June in which he hinted that it "can be reversed by subsequent presidents" — though he stopped short of saying he would do so.
Cesar Vargas, a Dream Act student who said he will submit his own application Wednesday, said he and his fellow Dreamers will continue to pressure both candidates to do more.
"A lot of our friends were literally cut off by one day or even by a few hours," said Mr. Vargas, who graduated law school but is now battling to be admitted to the bar. He said he will put his legal training to use in volunteering to assist other applicants Wednesday.
The threat of deportations may still keep some Dreamers from coming forward, particularly since they are unsure of what Mr. Romney will do as president.
REP. LUIS V. GUTIERREZ IS A LA RAZA FASCIST!
But Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, an Illinois Democrat who has become Congress' leader on the issue, said it would be politically impossible for Mr. Romney to overturn what Mr. Obama has done.
"I think the young people who sign up for deferred action will be politically bulletproof," he said. "Any future president or secretary of homeland security will have one hell of a fight on their hands if they try to deport this contingent of Dream-eligible youth en masse."
