The Obama administration has revealed details of its sweeping immigration program that could allow almost one million undocumented young people to remain in the country, an initiative that is prompting nonprofit organizations to ramp up efforts to help potential beneficiaries.
~ That translates into HOW many votes?! How many are voting age?
This travesty begins on August 15th, see details below. Also see how Rahm/Durbin are telling them to avoid the $465 fee. ~ JP
The rules announced Friday offer concrete details of the most significant easing of immigration policy since President Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to an estimated three million people in 1986. The Obama program offers a two-year renewable exemption from deportation and a work permit to those brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
Grassroots groups and philanthropists, many caught by surprise by the June announcement, have scrambled to raise funds and reach potential applicants since the policy was announced.
About 900,000 people, mainly from Latin America and Asia, could be eligible. The states that boast the most potential beneficiaries are California, with more than 400,000, and Texas, with more than 225,000. New York City is home to about 55,000.
The Department of Homeland Security expects to receive 3,000 applications a day and will need to hire more than 1,400 full-time workers, as well as contract labor, according to sources familiar with the situation.
~ Does this account for the fact they reported more jobs while the unemployment numbers rose? The government sector?
If you think the illegal aliens problem in this country is bad; if you think the outrageous amounts of our legal citizens’ tax paid dollars is unfair to legal citizens; and if you think that all the other free benefits such as welfare, housing, clothing, food, education even into the post high school years and preferences in employment are too burdensome now, as the saying goes, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”
In the Vision to America (VTA) July 27, 2012 online Newsletter an article titled “Obama Plans Massive 2nd Term Amnesty for Illegals”. A follow-up sub-heading read, “Program would immediately register new Americans to vote.” How does that grab you?
I would simply ask you what you are thinking. Not waiting for your reply, I can guess that the great majority of you would say, “Holy somethingorother” and then start planning to move to an island in the South Pacific.
Before you start packing your duffel bag, let me state that Obama himself did not make that horrifying statement or statements on the illegal aliens in this country and the millions more soon to be crossing a U. S. border near you; according to the Vision to America, “The schemes and many more are documented in the soon-to-be-released book “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.”
The immigration reform bill written and introduced by two Hispanic U. S. Representatives, Ortiz and Gutierrez as stated above, have placed an inordinate amount of other restrictions in the bill on venues or sites where suspected illegal aliens may not be apprehended in the “premises or in the immediate vicinity of 20 sites: childcare provider; school; legal-service provider; federal court or state court proceeding; funeral home; cemetery; college, university; community services agency; social service agency; hospital; emergency care center; health care clinic; place of worship; day care center; head start center; school bus stop; recreation center; mental health facility; and a community center; also pregnant or disabled illegals.”
Which leads into this by liberal blogger Lynn Sweet of The Tribune:
Rep. Luis Gutierrez and Sen. Dick Durbin–both Illinois Democrats–on Wednesday taped a video warning DREAMers– not to fall prey to expensive cons as Aug. 15 looms–the day youths in the U.S. illegally can apply to stay in the U.S. legally.
The two–leaders in the drive to help youths in the U.S. illegally through no fault of their own–launched by Durbin–recorded the video in the Senate TV studio this afternoon.
Gutierrez, Durbin and Mayor Rahm Emanuel will be at an Aug. 15 workshop at Navy Pier in Chicago to provide assistance to people applying for work permits and deferrals of government action against them.
~ The State of Illinois is home to over 75,000 DREAM Act-eligible youth which translates into 75 k votes for Bambi etal in my home state alone, making me wish I was there for my annual visit in the month of August.
August 1, 2012 – Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez (IL-04) calls on DREAM-eligible students to step out of the shadows and sign up for deferred action, which the Obama Administration has announced will begin on August 15, 2012. The Congressman will be joined by Senator Dick Durbin and Mayor Rahm Emanuel at an event at Chicago’s Navy Pier on August 15.
Background from Gutierrez:
On June 15, President Obama and Secretary of Homeland Security Napolitano announced that they would spare certain immigrants from deportation and offer them deferred action, a two-year temporary reprieve, if they meet certain criteria. The criteria include having already lived in the U.S. for five years, being under age 16 when they arrived, being under age 31 currently, having a clean criminal record, and a high school diploma or equivalent, among other criteria.
The DREAM Act passed the House of Representatives in November 2010 by a vote of 216-198 but was blocked by a Republican-led filibuster in the Senate. It had previously passed the U.S. Senate as part of bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform in 2006. The DREAM Act was introduced in both the House and Senate previously during the current Congress.
