ALIPAC is launching an effort today to warn all federal employees that Obama's directives to institute a mass Amnesty for millions of illegal aliens willing to claim they are under 30 and were brought here as children contradicts existing federal law, the rulings of Congress, and the US Constitution.
ALIPAC is asking all federal employees to refuse Obama's unconstitutional directives to provide Dream Act Amnesty for illegal immigrants along with all subsequent unlawful and unconstitutional orders from the Executive Branch that would harm Americans as this action does.
A veteran Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in Newark, Delaware, is currently being punished for refusing to release an illegal immigrant he deemed a risk to the American public. This and other unlawful orders mandated by Obama has many ICE and Border Patrol agents starting to balk as well.
"Each federal employee swears an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and now is the time for that oath to matter," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "We are asking all federal employees to begin openly defying these 'deferred action Amnesty' orders and to begin walking off the job to the nearest media offices if necessary. Obama has decreed an order via memo that if allowed to stand will set a precedent of dictatorial decrees that shift the entire framework of American governance into some new form of dictatorship and despotism."
The US Constitution and US Courts have clearly stated that immigration policy is to be set by the American public through their duly elected members of Congress. The Executive Branch is supposed to execute the laws of Congress. The Obama "deferred action Amnesty" did not originate with Congress! It is not a formal Executive Order, it contradicts numerous existing federal laws designed to protect American citizens from illegal immigration, and it clearly mimics legislation that was defeated by the public and Congress several times.
ALIPAC is calling on members of Congress to intercede to stop Obama's abuse of power and his attempt to appeal to illegal aliens to commit voter fraud! Congressional members must be ready to support Congressman Steve King's (R-IA) lawsuit and request for court injunction, and call on federal employees to begin to peacefully exercise their civil rights by refusing orders that defy the US Constitution.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC played a key role in defeating the Dream Act Amnesty legislation in Congress on several occasions. ALIPAC is now considering a lawsuit to recuperate supporter donations spent to that end since Obama has exceeded his constitutional authority to nullify the outcome of elections, citizen lobbying, congressional votes on legislation, and this legislation implemented by fiat.
ALIPAC has recently commented on these issues in the New York Times, Atlanta Journal Constitution, and on National Public Radio. All this has been despite specific efforts by George Soros backed groups to silence this organization through false claims designed to intimidate reporters and broadcasters.

OBAMA’S LA RAZA INFESTED ADMINISTRATION HELPS MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS DEFRAUD AMERICA AND GRAB AN AMERICAN JOB!
- President Obama’s amnesty will add nearly 2 million workers – possibly more – to the U.S. job market. This is a negligent economic and social policy with over 8% unemployment and half of recent young college graduates unemployed or underemployed.
- Lax documentation requirements to prove eligibility. DHS application instructions explicitly state that only copies of documents will be required to meet the eligibility criteria for amnesty including length of presence in the U.S., education, and even identity. Also, illegal aliens will be able to submit any and all documents they deem relevant to prove their eligibility. Virtually any form of documentation will be accepted, from report cards and plane tickets to mere personal correspondence.
- The Administration is making this up as they go along. In June, President Obama touted this policy as the “right thing to do” for some of the best and brightest. However, it is clear that the educational, residency and character requirements are becoming increasingly lax as more details about the implementation of the amnesty emerge.
- No face-to-face interview required. Most applications will be approved based only on the documentation submitted.
- Few safeguards against and limited consequences for filing fraudulent applications or documents. If DHS is actually diligent enough to identify fraud, the new amnesty instructions merely state that the Administration “may” elect to penalize illegal aliens by denying immigration benefits or placing them into removal proceedings. However, since illegal aliens are only required to submit copies – which lack identifiers of authenticity – it is unknown how USCIS employees will be able to identify fraud in the first place.
- USCIS turns blind eye to past illegal employment. Illegal aliens may use employment records to show eligibility for amnesty despite the fact illegal aliens are barred from working in the U.S. Past employers of illegal alien applicants are not likely to face prosecution for hiring illegal aliens.
- Family of deferred action recipients will also reap the benefits. Application instructions explicitly state that information collected on an illegal alien will not be used against him or her, or their “family members and guardians,” for the purpose of immigration enforcement.
- Illegal aliens granted work authorization can obtain Social Security cards. Illegal aliens granted deferred action must apply for employment authorization if they present an “economic necessity.” Once received, DHS work authorization will allow them to apply for a Social Security Number and possibly other benefits like driver’s licenses.
- Illegal aliens with a criminal history DO qualify. DHS says only felony convictions will make illegal aliens ineligible for amnesty, and even then, convictions won’t necessarily be considered if they are expunged. Additionally, criminal convictions in foreign countries will go undetected and DHS will “exercise discretion” when considering juvenile records.
- USCIS doesn’t have a great track record. Earlier this year, the DHS Inspector General found that USCIS leadership told employees to rubber-stamp applications for immigration benefits – including work authorization. In leaked documents to the Associated Press, USCIS estimated that it will review 3,000 deferred action and work authorization applications daily, only increasing the pressure to overlook possible fraud and approve benefits quickly.
“Law enforcement and public safety have taken a back seat to attempts to satisfy immigrant advocacy groups,” Crane told the panel of congressmen.
FAIR Legislative Update July 30, 2012
At a Capitol Hill press conference last Thursday, leaders from the two unions representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and Border Patrol agents denounced the Obama Administration's immigration policy. Flanked by Senators Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and David Vitter (R-LA), these two union leaders painted a stark picture of the state of immigration enforcement across the United States.
Mr. Crane also sharply criticized the President's new policy that grants "deferred action" to illegal aliens who meet the eligibility criteria for the DREAM Act. In particular, he warned of wide-spread abuse of the process. "Prosecutorial discretion for DREAMers," Crane said, "is solely based on the individual's claims. Our orders are: if an alien says they went to high school, then let them go; if they say they have a GED, then let them go. Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. .... At this point, we do not understand why DHS has any criteria at all, as there is no requirement or burden to prove anything on the part of the alien. We believe a significant number of people who are not DREAMers are taking advantage of this practice to avoid arrest." (Id.)
Like Crane, McCubbin also had strong words regarding President Obama's policy of "prosecutorial discretion." "The action taken by President Obama undermines immigration enforcement. Fraud will run rampant and our agents will have to err on the side of caution to grant prosecutorial discretion so that they don't put themselves into a position where they may find themselves involved in a civil lawsuit. ... The agents we represent are not happy regarding this. We feel as if we are political victims." (Id.)
The press conference came just days after FAIR released its report President Obama's Record of Dismantling Immigration Enforcement, a step-by-step look at how the President has undermined immigration enforcement and the rule of law.

Obama Starts Suspending Deportations TO BUILD HIS PARTY BASE of ILLEGALS
The stealth amnesty plan was first introduced last year in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to legalize the nation’s 12 million undocumented immigrants. Earlier this year political appointees at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), actually issued a directive to enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action.” The plan includes delaying deportation indefinitely (“deferred action”), granting green cards, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. indefinitely while they seek legal status (known as “parole in place”) and expanding the definition of “extreme hardships” so any illegal alien could meet the criteria and remain in the country.
NCLR Funding Skyrockets After Obama Hires Its VP
A Judicial Watch investigation reveals that federal funding for a Mexican La Raza group that for years has raked in millions of taxpayer dollars has skyrocketed since one of its top officials got a job in the Obama White House.
The influential and politically-connected National Council of La Raza (NCLR) has long benefitted from Uncle Sam's largess but the group has made a killing since Obama hired its senior vice president (Cecilia Muñoz) in 2009 to be his director of intergovernmental affairs.
Ignored by the mainstream media, Judicial Watch covered the appointment because the president issued a special "ethics waiver" to bring Muñoz aboard since it violated his own lobbyist ban. At the pro illegal immigration NCLR, Muñoz supervised all legislative and advocacy activities on the state and local levels and she was heavily involved in the congressional immigration battles that took place in the George W. Bush Administration.
She also brought in a steady flow of government cash that's allowed the Washington D.C.-based group to expand nationwide and promote its leftist, open-borders agenda via a network of community organizations dedicated to serving Latinos.Among them are a variety of local groups that provide social services, housing counseling and farm worker assistance as well as publicly-funded charter schools that promote radical Chicano curriculums. Judicial Watch published a special report on this a few years ago.
This week a JW probe has uncovered details of the alarming increase in federal funding that these NCLR groups have received since Muñoz joined the Obama Administration. In fact, the government cash more than doubled the year Muñoz joined the White House, from $4.1 million to $11 million.
Not surprisingly, a big chunk of the money (60%) came from the Department of Labor, which is headed by a former California congresswoman (Hilda Solis) with close ties to the La Raza movement. Since Obama named her Labor Secretary, Solis has launched a nationwide campaign to protect illegal immigrant workers in the U.S. Just this week Solis penned declarations with Guatemala and Nicaragua to preserve the rights of their migrants.
The NCLR also received additional taxpayer dollars from other federal agencies in 2010, the JW probe found. The Department of Housing and Urban Development doled out $2.5 million for housing counseling, the Department of Education contributed nearly $800,000 and the Centers for Disease Control a quarter of a million.
Additionally, NCLR affiliates nationwide raked in tens of millions of government grant and recovery dollars last year thanks to the Muñoz factor. An offshoot called Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) saw its federal funding nearly double to $18.3 million following Muñoz' appointment.
A social service and legal assistance organization (Ayuda Inc.) that didn't receive any federal funding between 2005 and 2008 got $600,000 in 2009 and $548,000 in 2010 from the Department of Justice. The group provides immigration law services and guarantees confidentiality to assure illegal aliens that they won't be reported to authorities.
OBAMA’S I.C.E. IS ONE MORE AGENCY TO EXPAND HIS LA RAZA PARTY BASE OF ILLEGALS!
WILL THERE BE A WAR WITH MEXICO?
In separate statements, officials from the border patrol agents union have also criticized Obama's immigration and border security policies.

Although the court had the ability to force disclosure under these circumstances, Judge Kollar-Kotelly allowed DHS one “final” opportunity to establish the applicability of these privileges to the information withheld from Judicial Watch.
In separate statements, officials from the border patrol agents union have also criticized Obama's immigration and border security policies.
Each day new reports come in from across the nation that our movement is surging and more incumbents, mostly Democrats, are about to fall on Election Day. Obama's approval ratings are falling to new lows as he makes highly inappropriate statements to Spanish language audiences asking illegal alien supporters to help him "punish enemies."
“While the declining job market in the United States may be discouraging some would-be border crossers, a flow of illegal aliens continues unabated, with many entering the United States as drug-smuggling “mules.”
Obama's 'Hispanicazation' of America
While the declining job market in the United States may be discouraging some would-be border crossers, a flow of illegal aliens continues unabated, with many entering the United States as drug-smuggling “mules.”
Increasingly vicious foot soldiers of the Mexican drug cartels are taking control of U.S. lands along the border, especially since U.S. Border Patrol units have been reassigned, some to offices 60 to 80 miles inland.
The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) early last year posted signs warning citizens to avoid Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend, Ariz., because of criminal activity in the area, an area that includes protected natural areas precious to the nation.
In reaction to public outrage over the signs, the BLM removed the offensive wording in October 2010, replacing it with the following: Visitor Information Update—Active Federal Law Enforcement Patrol Area.
As the liberal news media, far-left Democrats, and labor unions push for the “Hispanicazation” of U.S. culture, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the U.S. border has never been more secure.
Perhaps she is basing this on the reduced number of apprehensions, which result, of course, from reassigning Border Patrol agents inland.
In a recent New York Times article, Nicholas Kristof criticized U.S. citizens for not speaking a foreign language and suggested that “Every child in the United States should learn Spanish.” He concluded that as the United States increasingly integrates economically with Latin America, Spanish will be crucial for the United States.
For decades, the liberal left has argued that Latin America is essential for U.S. business and trade. Kristof states that Latin America “is finally getting its act together” but fails to mention the Obama administration’s $2 billion loan of U.S. taxpayer money in 2009 to Brazil’s Petrobras oil company for deep off-shore oil drilling. Obama confidant George Soros, through the Soros Fund Management LLC, until recently owned millions of dollars of Petrobras stock.
Kristof suggests that one day Spanish-speaking Americans will be part of daily life in the United States and that workmen such as mechanics will be able to communicate easily with Spanish-speaking customers.
He fails to explain why these customers will not be speaking English. After all, the ability to speak, read, and write English remains a requirement for U.S. citizenship.
President Barack Obama gives lip service to increasing border control resources with limited funding and personnel. Many officials, including the governors of Texas and Arizona, are skeptical regarding the Obama administration’s resolve. They resent that the United States is being blamed for the killing fields on both sides of the Mexico-U.S. Border.
For instance, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in March 2009, during her first official visit to Mexico, placed the blame for the Mexican drug cartels’ vicious murders on the United States.
In Mexico City, she announced that the U.S. appetite for illegal drugs and the easy acquisition of guns from the United States by Mexicans are the root causes of the Mexican crime wave. “Blame America” has become the global agenda of the Democratic Party.
The Obama administration’s plan to resolve the immigration chaos is to offer amnesty to all comers. President Obama re-affirms his support of a “pathway to citizenship” (amnesty) for illegal aliens in 2011.
The administration, however, has announced no plans to control the influx of future waves of illegal aliens or their skyrocketing costs to the nation. The administration, which condones U.S. sanctuary cities and states, has no plans to file charges against them for violations of federal immigration law. Nor does the administration seem concerned about the environmental impact that illegal aliens have on the ecology of the United States.
Many national forests, parks, monuments, wilderness areas, and wildlife refuges — once the pride of the nation — are serving today as marijuana fields for illegal alien gangs.
Former Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reportedly said to a gathering of illegal aliens in California in 2009 that U.S. immigration laws were “un-American,” suggesting that they need not be obeyed. Concerned citizens can only trust that the new speaker of the House, John Boehner, as part of congressional oversight of federal agencies, will demand enforcement of existing immigration laws.
When will President Obama recognize that illegal immigration is slowing economic recovery? Can he resolve the chaos while still appeasing his Hispanic base?
To maintain his populist aura, the president is in the habit of saying one thing to one audience and the opposite to another.
One Obama apologist explained, “Campaign rhetoric is one thing,” suggesting that governing is another. The deliberate Hispanicazation of the United States to secure a block of votes is quite another.
