It’s about time Homeland Security jumped into action but this could get really ugly. You can thank our lawless president for this screw up where thousands of illegal aliens were given three-year amnesty approvals against a court injunction. Even after the Feb. 16 injunction, and even as Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was assuring Congress no permits were being issued, his department did issue 2,000 more three-year permits which was illegal. This is really what we’ve come to expect from this lawless administration. Jeh Johnson has been playing coy for way too long in his effort to ignore federal law. Perhaps his chickens have come home to roost this time…
AT ABOUT THE 5:00 MARK ON THIS VIDEO YOU GET TO THE MEAT OF THE BELIEF THAT THIS PRESIDENT CAN IGNORE THE LAW:
Goosed into action by an angry federal judge, federal immigration authorities will go door-to-door demanding illegal immigrants return the three-year amnesty approvals the Obama administration issued to them in defiance of a court order.
Those who don’t return their three-year permits will have them terminated at the end of this month, the National Immigrant Justice Center, one of the advocacy groups briefed on authorities’ plan, said in a statement preparing immigrants for what could be a traumatic encounter.
The move comes as Homeland Security officials, fed up with slow-walking by illegal immigrants, are finally playing hardball after months of less forceful measures.
They’re scrambling to meet an end-of-month deadline set by Judge Andrew S. Hanen for recapturing thousands of three-year amnesties the department issued even after the court had entered an injunction halting the new amnesty program.
Unless all of the permits are recovered, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson could personally have to appear in court to explain the foul-up, Judge Hanen said in an order earlier this month.
But the home visits also come at a tricky time, when immigration is a heated issue, and any contact by authorities can be scary for immigrants. Advocacy groups, who were given a heads-up by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, are preparing to field calls from frightened immigrants.
