With a court-ordered hold on Obama’s order, we do not have to worry about many of the illegal aliens being given a free pass. But, we do have to worry if this hold is somehow overturned. There is a study that shows that the president’s executive order covers more people than he had represented in his November announcement.
The Washington Times reports:
President Obama’s executive actions on immigration shield more than 80 percent of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the country from any danger of being deported, a top immigration think tank reported Thursday.
We should not be shocked at this stage that the president is a liar. That he has misled or sought to mislead the people he works for. This is a normal thing for Obama. He thinks that he knows better than the people. But, he went one step further.
The Times continued:
As part of his November amnesty Mr. Obama announced a program to proactively grant a temporary deportation amnesty to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants. But he also directed immigration agents not to bother deporting millions of others, even though they weren’t eligible for the official amnesty, which grants work permits and other benefits.
What this means is that the president had told the public one thing and had told law enforcement another. What this means is that the president of the United States advised—no, ordered law enforcement not to enforce the law. Obama wanted the people in charge of enforcing the law to ignore, essentially, his own orders.
Follow me on this. Obama told the American people that only 4 of the 11 million Illegals would be affected by his executive order.
U.S. News and World Reports said:
Last night, President Barack Obama unveiled a broad plan for the nation’s immigration challenges, to be enacted by executive order. By all accounts, the president’s plan would affect nearly 4 million undocumented individuals in this country.
So, then, this is less than half of those currently here illegally. But, what the president did not say was that over half of the remaining number was not going to be dealt with because they were not going to face enforcement. The president had no intention of seeing those not meeting the eligibility for amnesty being deported.
The Times reports:
The directions to immigration agents were deemed enforcement “priorities” and instructed agents not to bother arresting or deporting anyone who didn’t meet the top priority levels.
“Implementation of the new enforcement priorities is likely to affect about 9.6 million people,” MPI’s Marc Rosenblum, author of the new study, said.
The president is meeting none of the requirements he set on his own policy and continues to allow illegals to snub their nose at our laws.
