Illegal immigrants are preparing to ask President Obama to pardon some 750,000 Dreamers, saying such a move is their last, best hope to stave off what they fear will be a wave of deportations once Donald Trump takes the Oval Office.
Community leaders have planned a rally in New York on Wednesday to make the request.
“Millions of law abiding undocumented immigrants are fearful of what will happen when the new Administration takes control in January,” the group of New York state lawmakers and immigration advocates said in a statement announcing the rally. “However, President Obama has the power of pardons that he can use to protect all DACA enrollees.”
As of September, more than 740,000 illegal immigrants had been approved for Mr. Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a minor amnesty that grants young adult illegal immigrants a two-year stay of deportation and issues them work permits, entitling them to driver’s licenses and some taxpayer benefits.
Mr. Trump has signaled that he would cancel that order, leaving Dreamers out of status when their work permits expire. That puts Mr. Obama in a bind because he has expressed an interest in helping illegal immigrants but also has acknowledged limits on power.
Mr. Obama ducked a question this week about what steps he might take and instead urged Mr. Trump to “think long and hard” before canceling the DACA program.
It is glaringly obvious that only a criminal gang posing as an administration, under a gang leader posing as a president, would hold such a meeting. A meeting to see if the demands of illegals can be "humanized" into law.
Some definitions and questions are in order here, Mr. arrogance, your highness, oh great one, yes, you, you dope smoking deranged demented Nimrod wannabe blithering blathering Harvard educated moron.
What, sir, is the definition of "Human." Not just in your warped messy mind, but really, factually, truthfully, even though those characteristics are minor indeed in what you try to pass off as deep thinking in a response.
And secondly, is that your job? Were you elected (assuming that you were) so you could humanize the nation? According to what standard? Yours?
Finally, did you take an oath to humanize the nation? Or was it something else? If so, what was it?
This meeting is over. The taxpayers demand a refund. You, sir, are worthless.
Millions of law abiding undocumented immigrants, There is simply no such thing, there are simply Millions of law breakers, they broke the law when they came and they need deportation. What needs to be done once and for all is clear rules of just what a president can and can not do in the way of pardons, maybe there is but no one says!
Great graphic Frank! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
