President Obama announced June 15 that the Department of Homeland Security will stop targeting young undocumented immigrants for deportation under certain circumstances.
Deferrals for Immigrant Children
“Under the new policy, people younger than 30 who came to the United States before the age of 16, pose no criminal or security threat, and were successful students or served in the military can get a two-year deferral from deportation,” CNN reported. It also allows these immigrants to apply for work permits if they are currently in the United States and can prove that they have been for at least five years, the article said.
Renewed Support from Evangelicals
The president’s announcement follows a June 12 announcement that more than 100 Evangelical leaders have signed a Statement of Principles for Immigration Reform. The statement calls for “a bipartisan solution on immigration” that respects human dignity and the rule of law, protects family unity, guarantees secure borders, ensures fairness to taxpayers, and establishes a “path toward legal status and/or citizenship for those who qualify and who wish to become permanent residents.”
‘Path to Citizenship’ Controversial
Christianity Today reported that only the path to citizenship point “is likely to touch on anything controversial,” because “the other five principles represent values that the vast majority of Americans believe should drive immigration reform.”
Focus on the Family Joins the Fight
The Los Angeles Times reported that although evangelical leaders like Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission president Richard Land and National Association of Evangelicals president Leith Anderson have supported immigration reform for several years, this is the first time that Focus on the Family has affirmed support for the issue.
‘Political Cover’ for President Obama
At The Daily Beast, David Sessions opined that “thanks to an emerging coalition of religious leaders, [immigration reform] might be the only issue where there is plausible common ground to be shared between the White House and the GOP base.” Perhaps he is correct. CNN described Evangelical and Catholic support for reform as “political cover” for the president.
Whether Obama’s political move will win him votes or backfires is the subject of a roundup at The Week, should you care about such things.
Gov. Romney’s ‘Tricky Balancing Act’
On Sunday, Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney told “Face the Nation’s” Bob Schieffer that “if [Obama] really wanted to make a solution that dealt with these kids or with illegal immigration in America, than this is something he would have taken up in his first three and a half years, not in his last few months,” The Washington Post reported.
Today, CBS described Romney’s position on the issue as “a tricky balancing act” of “aggressively courting the Hispanic vote, which could be decisive in the election” while holding on to his “conservative base that wants tough immigration policies.”
Impacted Immigrants Have Questions
Meanwhile, the young undocumented immigrants that the law directly impacts have questions, according to the Associated Press. They want to know: “Is it too good to be true? How will it actually work? What are the risks or pitfalls?”
What Do You Think?
Should young people whose parents brought them to the United States illegally be eligible for a path to citizenship?
Just one way to clean the dirt from the halls of Congress is by recognizing the Pro-Constitutional TEA PARTY? Even though it’s a part of the Republican Party, it is more responsive to the testimony of the U.S. Constitution than the right wing elitist’s agenda. The TEA PARTY is most certainly the most prominent part of the GOP, overwhelming both entrenched parties. It holds a great deal of promise, to the disillusioned Democrats, Republicans, Independents and the rest of the hurting American people, Of a government failing in bending to the will of the people and finding some kind of compromise, for standing issues gathering dust. It represents every American and has its individuality from the corruption, bribes and rot that THE TEA PARTY distinguishes itself from the parties in control.
The TEA PARTY believes in the freedom bequeath on us by one of the greatest manuscript that rules us all—THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. The Tea Party does not divide or Balkanize the American people, but is open to all people of color, race or religious faith. But its ideology illustrates a comparable difference between the ever warring parties. They have no kinmanship with the Democrats, who have backing of the ultra socialist enigma of the Liberals that has scarred this proud land. The TEA PARTY believes in the individual freedoms, but more so in the ‘Rule of Law’. Not Obama’s scheme of things, to pass his laws by decree, and not through the Senate and House of Representatives.
He has of late undermined THE PEOPLE’S LAW, by executive order to allow under certain circumstances that the children of illegal parents can stay. The Democratic DREAM ACT has stunned the American people, that 800.000 children of illegal aliens are being allowed stay. But nothing has obscured the law, which says the parents can stay. They are STILL ILLEGAL AND THEY ARE DEPORTABLE IF CAUGHT. In the next two weeks, this misnomer in the law will be clarified by the Supreme Court whether Arizona has the right to police its own residents, in its own sovereign state. Whatever the courts decide the outcome will cause a firestorm of controversy, as Department of Justice U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his minions have threatened any obedient state to bend to the government.
With his unfettered intimidation, how come Holder and his attorneys have not undertaken to investigate certain factors of the’ Rule of Law’ determining that although the federal government has the overall power, but Arizona as a sovereign state should have no right of policing enforcement, especially when decades of non-compliance or at best minimal enforcement has encouraged the mass movement of illegal migrants and immigrants. Illegal migrants from South of our border and illegal immigrants from other parts of the world, who have broken our laws to enter. Both entities have settled here stealing welfare and corrupted the processing system as millions still patiently wait for an employment visa. The procedure has become corrupt with corporate campaign contributions, that over 1 million of lowly skilled workers are imported annually.
Two very important laws must be imposed at once, so no more foreign invaders are encouraged to break the immigration ‘Rule of Law’. ‘THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT’ must be passed and advanced, so illegal aliens can no longer steal jobs from the millions of Americans unemployed. The ‘BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP ACT (H.R.140) must be compulsory so babies smuggled into America, so parents cannot take benefit from welfare, once the child become an immediate citizen. Half a million pregnant women enter the United States looking for handouts annually, for their children. Let your Senator or Congressman/Women know how you will vote, by giving your name to the politician’s aides and that you want them to sponsor E-Verify and the Birthright Citizenship bills. Citizen voters should phone Congress at the central Switchboard at 202-224-3121.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a strong willed, tough lawman, of Maricopa County, Arizona announced that his volunteer law enforcement investigation has found probable cause that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and his Selective Service registration form are forgeries? Arpaio has been ruthlessly attacked by the Department of IN-JUSTICE, the Liberal media and radical interest groups. Not to be found in National Press, is a WORLD NEWS DAILY video coverage of a court case that took place today in front of Judge Terry Lewis. It suggests that President Barack Omama is ineligible for the position in the Oval office, which excludes him from being named on the Democratic election ballot in November.
