H/T Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles for 700% Increase In Dropped Deportation Cases In One Month Mon 10/18/2010

A month after the Department of Homeland Security launched a covert program to dismiss pending deportations there’s been an increase of more than 700% in the number of cases that have been dropped by the government in one of the nation’s busiest immigration court systems.

In August Homeland Security officials quietly began to systematically dismiss the pending removal of illegal immigrants, even when expulsion was virtually guaranteed or the aliens had a criminal record.

This stems from Immigration cases being tossed by the hundreds By Susan Carroll The Houston Chronicle Oct 17 2010

A very fine piece of reporting, this essay reveals

Government attorneys in Houston were instructed to exercise prosecutorial discretion on a case-by-case basis for illegal immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for at least two years and have no serious criminal history… The dismissals essentially mean that officials are no longer actively trying to remove defendants through the immigration court system…

Corruption Chronicles concludes:

This is part of President Obama’s backdoor amnesty plan, which has been widely reported by Judicial Watch and a handful of conservative news publications. It calls for legalizing the nation’s estimated 12 million undocumented aliens if Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it. While the plan is crafted, the administration is implementing other measures–such as halting deportations–to protect illegal immigrants. Among them is prohibiting both federal and local law enforcement officers from arresting illegal immigrants as a result of traffic violations.

VDARE.com asks: where is the GOP response to this scandal? As a glance at the Houston Chronicle's comments thread shows, the dishonesty of this maneuver outrages most the public — and there is little evidence that voting Hispanics care.

Could it be that the GOP Establishment does not care either?
