"[The memo].....drafted by Chief of Policy and Strategy for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Denise Vanison, outlines the various ways to offer a mass amnesty to the nation's 11-18 million illegal aliens through the use of administrative actions. The stated purpose of the memo is to offer "administrative relief options to promote family unity, foster economic growth, achieve significant process improvements and reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization."There are several other provisions in this memo being considered to pave the road to amnesty including, allowing aliens with Temporary Protected Status to adjust their status to Legal Permanent Resident, extending "grace periods" to leave the country for aliens on temporary work visas, changing the distribution time line for temporary workers on the H-2B visa, and granting up to 240 additional days on applications for employment authorization when the application is filed before the work authorization expiration date.
"The memo proposes 18 different ways for the Obama Administration to essentially eliminate our borders through regulatory fiat and in clear violation of the letter and the spirit of U.S. immigration laws, which Obama swore an oath to faithfully execute," said NumbersUSA's Director of Government Relations Rosemary Jenks.
It would seem no matter the cost to America, her people or her laws, there are some who will bypass what the majority of Americans want to further their agenda. We passed massive amnesty under Reagan, which only caused more illegals to come here. There are many things that must be done to improve the immigration process for those who wish to come here, but granting amnesty to lawbreakers over and over is not the answer.
