Obama’s Bad Policies Support Illegal ImmigrationPosted: January 11, 2012
ALIPAC reports that Obamas administration trying to allow amnesty for people who claim that their being deported will be a hardship for their children. This allows illegal aliens to continue living in the US even while they are undergoing deportation proceedings.
Jim Forsyth writes:
U.S. Rep Lamar Smith (R-San Antonio), who heads the powerful House Judiciary Committee, says this is simply a way to provide amnesty to ‘select’ illegal immigrants.
And it also doesn’t appear to be too difficult to convince immigration officials that your deportation would be a hardship. Of the 2300 hardship waiver applications received last year, more than 70% were approved.
This is clearly an attempt by the Obama administration to win Hispanic votes and avoid implementing real immigration reform before the elections.
