A Taste of Amnesty: Obama DREAM Act was Implemented Without Background Checks


It’s not the DREAM Act of course. That couldn’t get through a Senate in 2011 that is chomping to pass full bore amnesty in 2013. But it was Obama’s illegal unilateral version of it.

And it dispensed with pesky necessities like background checks, because when you’re dreaming, why let the harsh reality of multiple convictions bring you down.

Judicial Watch announced today that documents obtained recently through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request show that the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) abandoned required background checks late last year, adopting, instead, costly “lean and lite” procedures in effort to keep up with the flood of amnesty applications spurred by President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) directive, which grants illegal aliens a two-year deferment from deportation.

An email chain from September 5 and through November 14 indicates managerial pressure not to turn any illegal alien applicant away for lack of ID, including the explicit directive in an October 3 memo, “Biometric processing should not be refused solely because an applicant does not present an acceptable ID.” In an October 1 memo further restricting independent action by agency personnel, they were instructed, “Every two weeks field offices will report the number of DACA requestors who appear for biometrics collection at an ASC during the previous two week period, but were turned away without fingerprints or photographs being taken. Field offices will also need to provide the reason why the DACA requestor was turned away by the ASC ISO.”

The documents also reveal that, contrary to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s claim that DACA applied only to minors who came to this country illegally “through no fault of their own,” the directive actually created a new avenue of chain migration, whereby immediate relatives of DACA requesters could be approved for amnesty. As a result, according to a June 18, 2012, agency memo from District 15 Director, David Douglas, “some of the districts closer to the U.S./Mexico border have been inundated.”

I would love to hear an explanation from any Senate Republican why the administration that did all this with a mere executive order should be trusted to implement full amnesty?

    The political elites, in DC and at the UN, have all wanted to “de-White” the USA because they know that White Americans, tend to be right of center politically and tend to be traditional in culture and tend to be patriotic (healthy nationalism).

    Thus, never-ending mass 3rd world immigration. Change the people and your change a country politically because politics follows culture and people (race, ethnicity, religion, language) make culture.

    When the “Dreamers” first started the abogados (Immigration lawyers) put up banners and opened new offices to drum up business. They have since closed them up and taken down the banners because their prospectiive clients are heading straight for the inner cities.

    The cartels are using “Dreamers” to build their drug networks down to street level,cutting out the “middle man”.

    The house has voted to defund the Dream Act on June 7, 2013. Now, if they would only vote to defund Obamacare!
