Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty Continues For Recent Illegal Entrants

One of the lies of the Obama Regime is that their deferred action program, the Administrative Amnesty, is that it is for those illegal aliens who have lived in the United States for five years or more, and specifically excludes recent illegal entrants, e.g. those who have entered the United States after January 1, 2014.  Of course, there is an obvious problem with that claim, for those illegal aliens who have been here less than five years but entered before January 1, 2014 are not eligible, if that is the correct word for an illegal program, for employment authorization, but are no more going to be deported than those who receive the illegal employment authorization.  More interesting is the situation of the illegal aliens who entered after January 1, 2014. More evidence has come to light that these illegal aliens will no more be deported than those who benefit from the expansion of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.

Three stories reveal that the Obama Regime is expanding the administrative amnesty in a rolling amnesty for illegal aliens as they arrive.

Obama Sheds ‘Deporter In Chief’ Label, Oversees Steep Drop In Illegal Immigrant Removals
“The rising costs of enforcement and deportations has more to do with the policy changes that they have made, like discontinuing expedited and stipulated removal and programs like [Alien Transfer Exit Program] than it has to do with the changing demographics of the illegal alien population,” she said.

The import issue here is that expedited removal is the strongest tool in deporting recent illegal immigrants, and by the way, criminal aliens, as there is no quasi-judicial immigration court review that the illegal aliens can use to remain in the United States. Expedited removal is the process by which an arrested illegal alien is immediately deported back across the border after arrest.  Expedited removal applied to any illegal alien with 2 years or less in the United States or an alien convicted of a deportable criminal offense.

The failure of by the Obama Regime to use expedited removal on illegal aliens caught at the border, or within two years of entry, allows illegal aliens to remain to exploit the immigration courts system where corrupt immigration "judges" like Dana Leigh Marks aid illegal aliens to remain in the United States.

Two other stories have confirmed that the Obama Regime is stage managing arrests of illegal aliens at the border with the intent to allow those illegal aliens to remain.

DHS Opens Largest Immigration Detention Facility As It Closes One Deemed Dangerous
With the spike in illegal immigration across the border of Southern Texas last summer, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to dedicate more border security resources to the prevention of illegal immigration.

As part of this effort, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson Monday inaugurated the largest immigration facility in the country. The 50-acre detention facility—a former oil field workers’ camp in rural South Texas—will be a detention camp for female and child migrants crossing the border into the US illegally.

“Here in Dilley, Texas I am announcing the opening of a new detention center here,” Johnson announced. “This facility will begin operating in a few days. It is intended for adults who cross the border illegally with their children. It replaces the temporary facility we set up in Artesia, New Mexico for the same purpose, which is closing. This new facility is much larger. The Artesia facility could hold up to about 700 people; this one will have the capacity to hold up to 2,400 people.”

Immigrations [sic] and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley is the fourth facility DHS has used to increase its capacity to detain and expedite the removal of adults with children who illegally crossed the Southwest border.

"ICE opened the temporary facility in Artesia in June as a critical piece of the government’s response to the unprecedented influx of adults with children at the Southwest border. Since then, the numbers of illegal migrants crossing into south Texas has gone down considerably," said Acting ICE Director Thomas S. Winkowski. "However, we must be prepared for traditional, seasonal increases in illegal migration. The Dilley facility will provide invaluable surge capacity should apprehensions of adults with children once again surge this spring."

Sounds like the Regime is planning to deport many recent illegal border crossers, but that is what the Regime wants the public to think.  But the truth is just the opposite.  The new detention facilities is not designed to hold illegal aliens while they are being processed for deportation, first, because centralized deportation holding facilities are not needed to quickly remove illegal aliens using expedited removal.  Expedited removal only needs the already existing processing facilities at the border, the numerous Border Patrol Stations already provide those facilities. Expedited removal processing is a quick process and fingerprinting, photographs, and paperwork take only an hour or so, then the aliens, Mexican or otherwise, are immediately returned over the land border to Mexico from one of the many Border Patrol Stations that cover the border with Mexico.


Second, the Regime claimed that the temporary facility in Artesia, NM, was needed to process the summer wave of illegal aliens who crossed in the Lower Rio Grande Valley for deportation. However, all the illegal aliens held at the Artesia facility were released into the United States.  Those illegal aliens were not deported as this blog reported.

Additional evidence that the Regime plans to process and release illegal aliens who cross the border illegally is that the Regime has announced an illegal special hiring effort for female Border Patrol Agents only.  This is obviously illegal, as male Border Patrol Agents can arrest and process female and minor illegal aliens just as well as female Agents.

Border Patrol Wants More Women Agents, Steps Up Recruitment Efforts In El Paso And Elsewhere
The U.S. Border Patrol is trying to recruit more women into its agent ranks to help deal with the influx of undocumented women trying to cross the Southwest border.
The Border Patrol on Dec. 1 issued a jobs posting aimed at women only. The application deadline is Wednesday.
"This is the first time we've had a job announcement for female agents only," said Border Patrol Agent Yesenia Leon, a spokeswoman for the agency's El Paso sector.
In October, when the agency issued a jobs posting for both men and women, only 16 percent of the applications were from women. That's why the agency decided to post a jobs announcement for women only, Leon said...
"There is a critical need for female agents. The reason is we've seen a dramatic increase in female detainees in this area. We've seen an increase of 173 percent (nationwide) since fiscal year 2011," Leon said.
In the 2014 fiscal year, which ended in October, 120,000 undocumented women immigrants were detained by the Border Patrol nationwide, compared with about 44,000 in fiscal year 2011, Leon reported. Most of that increase is due to the influx of mothers and their children from Central America, she said.
Border Patrol agents must do "pat down searches" of women detained at the border, so it helps to have women agents who can do those searches, she said.

Male Border Patrol Agents have been searching female arrestees for years.  It is clear that the Obama Regime wants these female Agents only for the processing for release into the United States this huge influx of female illegal aliens.  There is a good reason that so few women apply for the Border Patrol Agent position.  It is the most physically demanding job in law enforcement in the United States. These female Border Patrol Agents will not be arresting and deporting illegal aliens, but will be the welcoming committee for the next wave of illegal aliens, which is already upon us.

Border Patrol Apprehensions Increase For Third Year In A Row
For the first time in decades, most of the immigrants detained crossing the border illegally came from countries other than Mexico this year, while the total number of apprehensions climbed for the third year in a row, numbers released this week show.
Border Patrol agents caught 486,651 immigrants nationwide in fiscal year 2014, data released by the Homeland Security Department show, a 16 percent increase over last year’s 420,789.
The increase was driven largely by the unaccompanied children and families from Central America who flooded the Rio Grande Valley this spring and summer, officials said. Agents in the Valley detained nearly 50,000 unaccompanied children and another 29,000 traveling with adults.
The total number of immigrants apprehended in the Valley during fiscal year 2014 increased by about 100,000, to 256,393.

It is clear that illegal aliens have gotten the message from the Obama Regime, they are free to come to the United States and will be allowed to remain even if arrested at the border.

Mexican Official In Arizona Unwittingly Opens Up Avenue To Attack The Expansion Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty

A traitorous Mexican police chief, ostensibly an American citizen, but obviously loyal to Mexico and Mexicans, has announced that it will not enforce portions of the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, an Arizona statute commonly and mistakenly referred to as Senate Bill 1070.

Star-Tribune, December 17, 2014, by Astrid Galvan , Associated Press
Tucson, Arizona, Police Say They Will No Longer Check Immigration Status In Some Cases
TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucson police said Wednesday they will no longer fully enforce the state's landmark immigration law that requires local police to check the immigration status of people they encounter while enforcing other laws.
Chief Roberto Villaseñor said his officers will now only check immigration status and call the U.S. Border Patrol when a person has prior serious felony convictions, poses a threat to national security or has gang affiliations.
The criteria was set out for federal immigration authorities in an executive order issued last month by President Barack Obama intended to prioritize offenders for deportation.
The Arizona law, SB 1070, requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question the status of people suspected of being in the country illegally.

Now, the Mexican police chief has an excuse:

Villaseñor cited a provision in the law that says police should only enforce it when it is practical. He contends it is no longer practical because immigration authorities do not respond to calls by police in the vast majority of cases.
Tucson officers have placed about 11,000 calls to the Border Patrol since July on such matters and only received 94 replies, the chief said.
"So it's really a futile effort," he said.

And he is open that this is only a rationalization, as he supports illegal immigration and massive violations of Federal law.  Note that all employees, including police officers, in Tucson take an oath to support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States as well as that of the State of Arizona.

Villaseñor has been a vocal opponent of the law but has said he is obligated to enforce it.

Of course, he feels an obligation to enforce it, but he isn't enforcing it.

However, this opens up the Obama Regime to a challenge in court to its illegal and unconstitutional Administrative Amnesty.

In fact, the Department of Homeland Security is obliged to respond and act when contacted by State and local law enforcement regarding illegal aliens.  Title 8 United States Code (USC) Section 1226 instructs the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to create and maintain a system supporting State and local law enforcement in the area of immigration law.  For the uninitiated, all references to the Attorney General in the Immigration and Nationality Act (Title 8) were made applicable to the DHS Secretary by the Homeland Security Act of 2002.

Legal Information Institute, Cornell Law School


(d) Identification of criminal aliens
(1) The Attorney General shall devise and implement a system—
(A) to make available, daily (on a 24-hour basis), to Federal, State, and local authorities the investigative resources of the Service to determine whether individuals arrested by such authorities for aggravated felonies are aliens;
(B) to designate and train officers and employees of the Service to serve as a liaison to Federal, State, and local law enforcement and correctional agencies and courts with respect to the arrest, conviction, and release of any alien charged with an aggravated felony; and
(C) which uses computer resources to maintain a current record of aliens who have been convicted of an aggravated felony, and indicates those who have been removed.

Furthermore, section (c) 8 USC 1226 requires the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to take into custody all illegal aliens.

(c) Detention of criminal aliens
(1) Custody
The Attorney General shall take into custody any alien who—
(A) is inadmissible by reason of having committed any offense covered in section 1182 (a)(2) of this title,
(B) is deportable by reason of having committed any offense covered in section 1227 (a)(2)(A)(ii), (A)(iii), (B), (C), or (D) of this title,
(C) is deportable under section 1227 (a)(2)(A)(i) of this title on the basis of an offense for which the alien has been sentence  to a term of imprisonment of at least 1 year, or
(D) is inadmissible under section 1182 (a)(3)(B) of this title or deportable under section 1227 (a)(4)(B) of this title,
when the alien is released, without regard to whether the alien is released on parole, supervised release, or probation, and without regard to whether the alien may be arrested or imprisoned again for the same offense.

Now, much has been made of a legal challenge to the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, as the concept of standing requires either authority to challenge the constitutionality of the law from legislation or a constitutional standing.  Generally, legislation and the Constitution requires the litigant to have suffered a harm.

In this case where the law requires DHS to respond and take custody of illegal aliens.  But DHS is not responding to its legal obligation. Congress by legislation mandated that DHS respond to State and local law enforcement who encounter illegal aliens. This gives every State and local government if it has a law enforcement function, as all do, legal standing to challenge the ongoing Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty for criminal aliens if the Regime does not respond to arrests of illegal aliens.  

This does not excuse or indemnify the RINO leadership John Boehner and Mitch McConnell from their failures and political consequences, but the reviews to date by courts show that all aspects of the Administrative Amnesty are unconstitutional. A challenge just needs a State or local government to take action, or a DHS employee to refuse to implement the Administrative Amnesty and wait upon  DHS to initiate disciplinary action, creating the injury that a litigant needs to sue on the amnesty issue.

Conclusive Evidence Immigration Enforcement Is Good For American Workers

Well, at least legal workers.  The culinary workers at San Francisco International Airport went on a one-day strike for higher wages and job security.  Most workers at SFO are legal immigrants; predominately Filipino, Mexican, and Chinese immigrants, but not exclusively. 

SFGate December 14, 2014 by Victoria Colliver
Union Eatery Workers End Strike At SF Airport
Restaurant workers at San Francisco International Airport returned to work Saturday morning, ending a two-day strike.
The strike involved as many as 1,000 workers who’ve been working without a contract for more than a year, according to the union, Unite Here Local 2. The union said the walkout prompted the closure of 80 percent of the airport’s restaurants.
“This limited walk out was intended to send a clear message,” said Jesse Johnson a bartender at the Buena Vista Café and a member of the union’s executive board, in a statement. “Workers at SFO’s restaurants are determined to win the job security protections and health care coverage we deserve. Hopefully, these restaurant companies heard that loud and clear, but we are prepared for any eventuality.”

However, what separates airport workers from the general service industry worker is that there is a de facto E-Verify program for employment at an airport.  In a little known program, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU) actually makes an effort in the critical infrastructure area to ensure that all workers are legal and identified.  The most prominent area of critical infrastructure enforcement is at airports.

Critical infrastructure in general, and airports in particular, are evidence that aggressive immigration enforcement and employment eligibility are essential elements in protecting American jobs and boosting living standards for legal workers.  More importantly, immigration enforcement protects wages, drives down welfare use, and alleviates poverty for workers who are on the left side of the Bell Curve.

Time to expand the experiment in immigration enforcement and employment verification from critical infrastructure to the whole United States.  The winners will be those Americans hardest hit by competition with illegal aliens.

Latest On VDare

There’s an old saying among lawyers: “If you have the law, hammer the law. If you have the facts, hammer the facts. If you have neither the law nor the facts, hammer the table.” “Hammering the table” is an apt summary of the Obama Regime’s legal defense of its expansion of Administrative Amnesty.

We already know that the Obama Administration is violating the law even on its own terms. But it got the facts wrong too. In fact, the legal report written by Karl Thompson, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the Office of Legal Counsel, is so far off-base that it could have been written as a kind of parody. But since the Regime is serious, Thompson [Email him] needs to learn his fancy title doesn’t make him immune from accountability—and the Republican Party needs to impeach him if it is at all serious about opposing the President’s coup...[read more]

Amnesty For Criminals Confirmed

This blogger identified the amnesty for criminal illegal aliens long ago, but more evidence has arisen from leakers that the Obama Regime plans a massive expansion of the amnesty for criminal illegal aliens and terrorists by not only allowing criminals and terrorists to remain, but continue to enter the United States.

Breitbart December 8, 2014 by Matthew Boyle
Leaked Docs: Usa Vulnerable To Criminals, Terrorists Entering Without Scrutiny After Obama Exec Amnesty
Under the executive amnesty immigration action from President Barack Obama, internal administration documents show the administration is considering allowing terrorists, transnational criminals, and anyone else who wants to enter or stay inside the United States to not even answer if they’ve ever been connected with a crime.
The internal Obama administration documents, obtained by Breitbart News through a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) source, include a draft application for illegal immigrants seeking to stay in the country and future prospective immigrants seeking to the enter the country.
On the draft application, applicants for “T nonimmigrant status” or for “U nonimmigrant status” are not required to answer a series of key questions about their background. T nonimmigrant visas are for people who are petitioning the U.S. government to be considered a “victim of a severe form of trafficking in person” and U nonimmigrant visas are for those seeking to be considered a “victim of criminal activity.”
Part of the president’s executive immigration action is to expand T and U visas. In order to engage in “[p]rotecting victims of crime and human trafficking as well as workers,” a White House fact sheet on the president’s executive action reads, “[t]he Department of Labor (DOL) is expanding and strengthening immigration options for victims of crimes (U visas) and trafficking (T visas) who cooperate in government investigations.”

So, despite claims that the ongoing amnesty does not include criminal illegal aliens, it does.

Corrupt Hispanic Officials Protecting Each Other From Criminal Prosecution

Hispanic corruption knows no bounds.  It extends even into those Hispanics who make it onto the bench and into the District Attorney's Office.  The Lower Rio Grande Valley  has the worst offenders, and the most Hispanics.  There is a correlation between Hispanics and official corruption and misconduct.

DWI Charge Against South Texas Appeals Judge Dismissed; Prosecutor Cites Lack Of Evidence
McALLEN, Texas — The case against a South Texas judge charged with drunk driving has been dismissed.
Hidalgo County officials said Wednesday there is not enough evidence to prosecute 13th Court of Appeals Justice Nora Longoria. Judge Rolando Cantu dismissed the case against her last week.
District Attorney Rene Guerra tells the McAllen Monitor that Longoria didn't appear to have slurred speech in a recording at the jail. There isn't a recording of the traffic stop.
A McAllen police officer arrested Longoria in July. Police say she refused to let officers handcuff her or to provide breath and blood tests. They say Longoria told officers they would have to drag her to the patrol car.
Longoria is represented by Democratic state Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa of McAllen. Hinojosa didn't return the newspaper's requests for comment.

However, there is no lack of evidence, only racial solidarity among corrupt Mexican immigrants and their descendants:

NY Daily News December 6, 2014 by Meg Wagner
Police Release Dashcam Video Of Texas Judge Stumbling Through Sobriety Test Month After Court Drops Her DUI Charges
Court of Appeals Judge Nora Longoria was allegedly begged for leniency during her DUI arrest in July. Last month, the District Attorney’s office said it lacked enough evidence to prosecute and another judge threw out the case. The DA said it never got the dashcam video, which showed Longoria stumble through her failed sobriety test.
A month after a Texas court threw out a DUI case against a judge because it lacked strong evidence, police released dashcam video of her arrest that showed her stumble through a sobriety test.
The new video, recorded during a July traffic stop in McAllen, showed Nora Longoria struggling to walk a straight line, Action 4 News reported. She teetered and lost her balance several times during her failed sobriety test, the video showed.
But Hidalgo County Court at Law No. 8 Judge Rolando Cantu threw out the case last month, marking "other" for the reasoning.
Hidalgo County District Attorney Rene Guerra said her office never received the dashcam tape from McAllen police.



It appears there is a conspiracy among Hispanic officials to pervert the course of justice.  Now, the proprietor of JammieWearingFools says this is all about Democrats protecting each other, which is what Democrats do, but the more obvious commonality is their last names and national origin.

Convenient for one Democrat to represent another.
These Texas Democrats sure do love to get drunk.

No, it's the corruption and drunkeness that Hispanics bring to the United States.  It's part of their culture.  Perhaps we should reconsider birth right citizenship.

Did Police "Choke" Eric Garner to Death? No, Not Even A Choke Hold







If your in a choke-hold, you won't be able to breathe or say you can't breathe. So endeth the lesson.
