Aliens: Work Permits, No Safeguards Against Fraud
Stand With Arizona -- Obama’s lawless bypass of Congress in granting blanket amnesty to millions of illegal aliens began this morning across America.
Tens of thousands of illegals lined up early, and flooded into DHS centers to apply for nearly automatic 2-year stays from deportation and work permits, with far looser provisions and requirements than were ever imagined in any version of the 3-times defeated ‘Dream Act’ in Congress.
Thanks to Obama’s decree on June 15th, blanket amnesty for illegal aliens under 30 begins today as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) begins accepting applications for "deferred action" and work authorization.
To soften the public relations blow, the White House estimated that about “only 800,000″ illegal aliens would be covered under this amnesty, when Obama issued his edict – a complete fiction that he knew the media would not challenge. However, the figure was disputed by the Pew Hispanic Center, which estimated about 1.4 million beneficiaries. Then last week, the pro-amnesty Migration Policy Institute estimated that 1.76 million illegal aliens will be eligible.
In reality, the numbers will be higher – FAR higher. Why? Because, as House Judiciary chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told DHS Secretary Napolitano in an August 13th letter, there are no mechanisms in place to detect, deter, or to punish fraud.
NONE. Nothing to stop illegals who either fall slightly outside the criteria, or far beyond its provisions to submit fraudulent documents and gain an automatic 2-year stay from deportation, and no consequences if they do. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) does not even require original or certified documents to be submitted – opening up a Pandora’s box of potential fraud from a group of individuals accustomed to a lifetime of employment and Social Security fraud, tax evasion and identity theft.
What is to stop 2 million new border crossers tomorrow from applying for and receiving this amnesty? Absolutely nothing.
Blog author's comments - Obama's executive order is granting amnesty to many who crossed the border illegally and are now being rewarded for doing so. We will now be more vulnerable to criminals, to job loss and to an infusion of non-assimilated citizens. Obama says it will make immigration policy more fair, more efficient and more just.
What I don't understand is why the Obama supporters can't see that what he has done in less than four years will continue to negatively affect their lives. We are paying and paying because of those who voted for Obama in 2008. I do hope many of them will not make that same mistake again.
Our country cannot survive another four years of Obama rule. As for the liberal Media, they too are responsible for what has been done because they do all they can to hide the facts and truth from the American people.
