Obama’s Amnesty Executive Order Imminent

A recent bid for millions of extra ID cards, as well as an extension of protected status, give away the game.

Barack Obama is ready to pull the trigger on his amnesty executive order, in complete disregard for Rule of Law. He has refused to protect our sovereign borders and has undermined enforcement of immigration law over those already here illegally. He has not only allowed tens of thousands of children from Central America to be transported into America illegally, but he has then redistributed them to cities throughout the U.S.

Last month, we reported that Obama, at the request of several prominent Democrats, delayed action on immigration reform (read: amnesty) because too many congressional seats might be lost over the issue come November. For the moment, it’s on the backburner with the timer set to ring after the election. Yet the issue of immigration, specifically illegal immigration, is on the minds of voters who love this country enough to try and save it from a rogue administration bent on permanently changing the demographics of the nation in order to ensure a permanent Democrat voting bloc.

The president has every intention to move forward with his agenda of allowing illegal immigrants to flood the country. A new report highlights actions the Obama administration has already undertaken.

Recently, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) started soliciting bids for a contractor to produce nine million identification cards in one year – five million more than the annual requirement so as to meet a possible “surge” scenario of new immigrants. The new ID cards will consist of Permanent Residency Cards (also known as green cards) or Employment Authorization Documentation cards, which, according to the report, “have been used to implement President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.”

The request for millions of new ID cards to accommodate this “surge” is clear evidence that, shortly after the midterm election, Obama will issue an executive order to bypass what he claims is “congressional inaction on immigration reform.” But congressional inaction on this and any issue is action. The immigration reform policies he wants to impose on the nation will be overwhelming for our struggling economy, as well as schools and medical facilities across the nation. But the Democrats’ dire political need for more blindly loyal constituents trumps Rule of Law.

Additionally, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services also quietly announced last Friday that, as National Review’s Mark Krikorian puts it, “Certain illegal aliens from Honduras and Nicaragua are having their amnesty extended, and USCIS is establishing the ‘Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program.’” These illegal immigrants, estimated to number 90,000, have already had Temporary Protected Status since 1999, which was granted to them following Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Fifteen years of “Temporary Protected Status?” Sounds more like Permanent Protected Status, which is exactly what the new parole program will allow. It’s another frequently deployed deceitful Obama tactic – just change the meaning of words in order to accommodate the agenda.

To make matters worse, another recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies reveals, “[D]eportations from within the United States dropped 34 percent from last year and the number of criminal alien deportations declined by 23 percent.” Further, of the 900,000 immigrants who received a final order of removal, “167,000 are convicted criminals who were released by ICE.” Why aren’t the agencies tasked with enforcing the law on illegal immigration doing their job?

The answer is simple: When a president has an agenda to fundamentally transform America, he will do whatever it takes to accomplish it. He must be stopped. But who will stop him? The current Congress has done little because Democrats control the Senate, and they continue to appropriate money for Obama’s agenda. That must change on Election Day, or amnesty will steamroll ahead, to the peril of our already fragile Republic.
