Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”
The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year. In the “surge,” scenario in 2016, the agency would need an additional five million cards – more than double the baseline annual amount for a total of 9 million.
“The guaranteed minimum for each ordering period is 4,000,000 cards. The estimated maximum for the entire contract is 34,000,000 cards,” the document says.
The agency is buying the materials need to construct both Permanent Residency Cards (PRC), commonly known as green cards, as well as Employment Authorization Documentation (EAD) cards which have been used to implement President Obama's “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program. The RFP does not specify how many of each type of card would be issued.
Jessica Vaughn, an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies and former State Department official, said the document suggests a new program of remarkable breadth.
The RFP “seems to indicate that the president is contemplating an enormous executive action that is even more expansive than the plan that Congress rejected in the 'Gang of Eight' bill,” Vaughn said.
all of the coke and/or speed he's been snorting has finished off any remaining reasoning he ever had. yes, I mean that... you can tell very easily while he's talking... the tight jaw, the glazed hyper look attempting to seem like he's got it together and is important but instead comes off like he's barely able to hide his contempt, his always touching/wiping his nostrils, his rapid aging, his aggressive rants. he's a drug addict. positive.
I cant imagine him holding up even physically another two years at the rate he's going down... someone needs to arrest him before he does himself, the country, and the rest of the world even more harm than what's been allowed already.
If he is going to self destruct,......................for the first time, and only on this particular endeavor,....... I support him, and wish him abundant SPEED, IN THAT ENDEAVOR
I agree, EVIL ENTITY obama can't self destruct soon enough!
Maybe it could happen today!
no, give him some more drugs, let him go down.
Buy more ammo, it is going to be a target rich environment.
It's not unheard of for federal agencies to plan for contingencies, but the request specifically explains that the surge is related to potential changes in immigration policy.
“The Contractor shall demonstrate the capability to support potential 'surge' in PRC and EAD card demand for up to 9M cards during the initial period of performance to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements,” the document says.
A year ago, such a plan might have been attributed to a forthcoming immigration bill. Now, following the summer's border crisis, the chances of such a new law are extremely low, giving additional credence to the possibility the move is in preparation for an executive amnesty by Obama.
Even four million combined green cards and EADs is a significant number, let alone the “surge” contemplated by USCIS. For instance, in the first two years after Obama unilaterally enacted DACA, about 600,000 people were approved by USCIS under the program. Statistics provided by USCIS on its website show that the entire agency had processed 862,000 total EADs in 2014 as of June.
Vaughan said EADs are increasingly coming under scrutiny as a tool used by the Obama administration to provide legalization for groups of illegal aliens short of full green card status.
In addition to providing government approval to work for illegal aliens, EADs also cost significantly less in fees to acquire, about $450 compared to more than $1000. In many states, EADs give aliens rights to social services and the ability to obtain drivers' licenses.
Vaughan noted there are currently about 4.5 million individuals waiting for approval for the green cards having followed immigration law and obtained sponsorships from relatives in the U.S. or otherwise, less than the number of id cards contemplated by the USCIS “surge.”
USCIS officials did not provide additional information about the RFP by press time.
YES CHRIS THIS IS WHAT WE MUST DO
I DO NOT RECALL GIVING PERMISSION FOR THIS DID U? HELL NO HE HAS ZERO AUTHORITY TO DO THIS ANYWAY THE US CONSTITUTION DOES NOT GIVE HIM THE POWER HES GIVEN HIMSELF THERE IS THE 9TH AND 10TH AMENDMENTS AND WE BEST USE THEM AND NOW

And for the ones who don't work. WELFARE.
Obama is doing exactly what George Soros wants done. Soros believes there should be no countries, no borders and no law except the law issued by a one world tribunal that will leave the billionaires at the top of the heap and everyone else struggling to survive. Then war and plagues will kill of 90% of the population leaving these evil men to have to entire world to themselves. We are seeing the end of the world as we know it. Our only hope and all our prayers should be for God to bring this to an end and that the meek will inherit the earth and not the evil death mongers.
It won't work if they do get their way. They have apparently forgotten one social rule that has balanced the whole world (and within it, their own personal wealth(s)) since time began...
it's complicated - and would be one of those very long stories written out to explain (I'm almost done with a fairytale that situates on) but, if anyone is familiar with Thundercats.... Lion-O and Mummra?!! They need each other for their own identities to survive... neither can totally destroy the other without destroying themselves along with.
