Criminal Illegal Aliens to Receive Amnesty

Bipartisan Group Of Senators Announce Major Agreement On Immigration ReformAn obscure portion of the new immigration bill authored and negotiated by the bipartisan so-called “Gang of 8″ will allow illegal aliens with multiple misdemeanor convictions to still qualify for immediate legal status and potentially even citizenship down the road.

According to the pertinent portion of the text, those with three or more misdemeanor convictions no longer qualify for immediate legalized status under the new bill. Grounds for ineligibility status include anyone with one or more felony convictions along with three or more misdemeanor convictions. As the text states, only those with “3 or more misdemeanor offense (other than minor traffic offenses or State or local offenses for which an essential element was the alien’s immigration status or violation of this Act) if the alien was convicted on different dates for each of the 3 offenses” will be ineligible.

Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama (R), whose office released this portion of the text, slammed this directive stating that it will lead to criminals being able to gain legal status in a press release.

Alarmingly, the bill leaves intact the single greatest obstacle to immigration reform: the Administration’s abuse of prosecutorial discretion to prevent the enforcement of federal law. It will also provide safe harbor to those who have committed a variety of offenses—ranging from identity theft, to multiple immigration violations, and even those with criminal records.

Front Page Magazine reached out to the offices of Senators Marco Rubio and Chuck Schumer for comment as well, but no message was returned as of the publication of this article.

In December 2012, the Obama administration first reclassified the definition of a dangerous criminal illegal alien as an individual convicted of three rather than one misdemeanor. In that case, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) directive to all ICE agents redefined priorities for all agents to only focus on investigating individuals with at least three misdemeanor convictions.

If passed, this bill will immediately legalize all those illegal aliens who qualify, including those with two misdemeanor convictions or less. The bill further provides a pathway to citizenship which should take a minimum of ten years and presumably will include a number of triggers for border security. The bill also calls for a number of border security measures, including full implementation of the E Verify system, money to build a border fence for the Southern border, as well as extra resources to hire more border patrol agents.

While analysts have focused on the dynamic between the enforcement portions of the bill and how they will interact with the amnesty portions, most observers have assumed that dangerous illegal aliens will all be deported. This latest revelation puts that assumption into question, and that should also be considered and fully explained before any votes on this bill are taken.

    In the coming U.S. immigration reform debate, there is a simple solution: the United States must return to the idea that governed through the 19th century and much of the 20th.

    To wit: immigration policy must be based on what is good for the nation, not the immigrant.

    The gang of 8, whether Demsters or RINO's, must be booted out, if America is to survive. Moreover, after the recent Boston jihad, with refugee status allowing the family's entry, one would think that criminal elements, as well as those from hostile nations, should NEVER enter America, under any circumstances.

    Therefore, if Americans want to survive they have to take action, however difficult it may seem – every community has power in numbers!

    The number of kidnappings and murders related to illegal crossings of the border have skyrocketed and the feds seem powerless to stop it.

    But it is interesting to note that a state law (Arizona) that only asks that existing law be enforced and followed is so violently opposed by the open borders crowd.

    HERE's MY DREAM ACT: – - – AGGRESSIVELY ENFORCE CURRENT LAW.
    - then come to the negotiating table in good faith, Mr. Rubio.

    Once again we have the spectacle of people demanding that the law of the land not be enforced, that we shouldn't be serious about illegal immigration.

    Politicians from both political parties place Cultural Marxism (i.e. political correctness) above our National/Homeland Security and Constitution. In other words, both parties are pandering for the Hispanic vote and this is why they ignore the Middle Eastern illegal alien terrorists that are already here and will ultimately become citizens. Politicians ignore what our enemy tells us they are going to do and that is destroy America and the Western world thus opening the door to a global Caliphate.
    They seem to forget the facts about how Iran and the Islamic world wants to form a global Caliphate.
    Why are BOTH parties rushing into the illegal immigration issue without deeper hearings on the real challenges facing America? How can they read and hold hearings on the 877-page bill NOBODY has read?
    Both political parties, in both the House and Senate need to hold hearings on the bigger challenges we face before looking at the immigration issue and sign another bill NOBODY has read nor adequate hearings have been held. What about the number of Middle Eastern illegal alien terrorists that crossed the borders since before 9/11.
    I suggest everyone interested in our National/Homeland Security and Constitution look up Chechnya Beslan School Massacre and Moscow Theater massacre. Look up FBI & DHS report on how our schools could be endanger however, Obama and the Democrats are trying to weaken our schools, not strengthen them. Why no hearing on the number of Middle Eastern illegal alien terrorists that have been crossing our borders since before 9/11 after having attended advanced terrorism training camps in Iran, Syria, Venezuela and the Tri-Border area in South America of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
    I keep hearing the term “RADICAL ISLAM” however, it is actually “PURE ISLAM” which is a big difference. I suggest citizens, media, politicians, military, educators, etc. take a course called Muslim Brotherhood in America – A Course in 10 Parts by former Assistant Secretary of Defense, Frank Gaffney.
    Why hasn’t the Obama DOJ prosecuted the unindicted co-conspirators listed in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trials? Why no hearings in either the House or Senate on the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to destroy America? Oh, you can

    Why shouldn't all would-be immigrants have to follow the same route as I did in order to enter this country and obtain U.S. citizenship. Before I was issued a permanent visa in Dublin, I had to pass a very difficuly physical exam, prove to the officals at the U.S. consulate that I never had a criminal record and agree to register with my local Draft Board within 6 months of my arrival here. One and a half years later I joined the Marine Corps and was still required to register as a resident alien every January during the 4 years I served as a marine. Having obtained an HONORABLE discharge, I applied for U.S. citizenship and was photographed, fingerptinted, and investigated for 6 weeeks before my application was approved. Now as a U.S. citizen and a Marine Corps veteran, I must pay $50 each time I see a physician in the Veterans Hospital, as Illigal aliens receive free health care in hospital emergncy rooms. Why were the immigration laws so difficult for LEGAL immigrants from Europe and now easy for ILLEGAL immigrants who UNLAWFULLY enter thru our southern border?
