A month after the Department of Homeland Security launched a covert program to dismiss pending deportations thereâ€™s been an increase of more than 700% in the number of cases that have been dropped by the government in one of the nationâ€™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.

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 historyâ€¦ The dismissals essentially mean that officials are no longer actively trying to remove defendants through the immigration court systemâ€¦

This is part of President Obamaâ€™s backdoor amnesty plan, which has been widely reported by Judicial Watch and a handful of conservative news publications. It calls for legalizing the nationâ€™s estimated 12 million undocumented aliens if Congress doesnâ€™t pass legislation to do it. While the plan is crafted, the administration is implementing other measuresâ€”such as halting deportationsâ€”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 â€“ and there is little evidence that voting Hispanics care.
Could it be that the GOP Establishment does not care either?
