DOJ: We Legalized 100,000 Illegals By Executive Action Before Injunction
(CNS News) - President Obama’s expanded executive amnesty started earlier than the administration said it would — and before a court blocked it.
“Out of an abundance of caution,” the Obama Justice Department on Tuesday informed a federal court in Texas that it started issuing three-year work permits to thousands of illegal aliens right after President Obama announced his executive amnesty on November 20 — and before a federal court issued a preliminary injuction blocking the expanded amnesty on Feb. 16.
The injunction barred the Obama administration from implementing “any and all aspects or phases” of Obama’s expanded DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals) program. That program allows certain illegal aliens to live and work in the U.S. for three years instead of two.
But the injunction did not apply to Obama’s original 2012 DACA program, so when those people renewed their enrollment, they got the new three-year work permits.
Between November 24, 2014 — four days after Obama announced his expanded amnesty — and the court’s injunction on Feb. 16, the administration says it granted three-year periods of deferred deportation (and three-year work permits) “to approximately 100,000 individuals” who signed up for the originial 2012 DACA program and were eligible for renewal...(MORE)
Boehener Submits to Obama’s Executive Amnesty
(The Blaze) – House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has told Republicans that he would call up and pass a “clean” Department of Homeland Security spending bill this week, and give up the fight to use that bill to defund President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration.
The decision marks the end of a standoff that has lasted for several weeks — a standoff Republicans will lose to Democrats when the clean DHS bill passes.
Boehner met with other House Republicans in a closed-door meeting Tuesday morning, and as it ended, members indicated that Boehner announced that a vote on the bill could come as early as Tuesday.
A House aide confirmed that Republicans will try to pass the Senate version later on Tuesday.
Last week, more than 50 Republicans opposed legislation that didn’t defund Obama’s immigration plans, and that many or more may oppose the clean DHS bill in the final vote. That means Republicans will need Democratic support to pass the bill, an easy request, since Democrats have been clamoring to pass a bill that doesn’t attack immigration...(MORE)
