And even more egregiously, 8 illegal aliens will get amnesty.
The government agreed to drop deportation proceedings against four of the plaintiffs and to grant a four-year reprieve from deportation to four others.
U.S. Agrees to New Rules for Immigration Raids, NYT April 4, 2013 by Kirk Semple
This policy will end immigration enforcement, especially that directed at aliens who abscond from deportation orders issued by the toothless Executive Office for Immigration Review.
Now, besides the countless manhours needed to track down those illegal aliens with outstanding warrants for arrest and deportation orders, all illegal aliens have to do to avoid arrest is not to open the door when Deportation Officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE ERO) come knocking. llegal aliens can just laugh and wave from the window.
ERO, of course, does not have enough officers to stand idly by while illegal aliens hide in a house and refuse to come out. They have to leave eventually and the illegals will be the big winners under these new rules.
Not mentioned by the New York Times: Chief RINO John Boehner can solve this problem legislatively by giving ICE ERO officers authority to enter private property based on an administratively-issued arrest warrant or deportation order, including reinstated orders of deportation for the illegal alien who re-enters after deportation.
That obviously will not happen.
This unnecessary surrender—all the lawsuits that sought such a policy had failed—belies the Regime's claim that it was concentrating on sub-classes of illegal aliens, which previously included absconders and the previously deported, those whom were subject to search and arrest by ERO.
Instead, the Regime is making the numbers of illegal aliens subject to immigration enforcement smaller and smaller.
Soon there won't be any illegal aliens subject to the laws of the United States, which certainly suits the Regime's obvious goal: Electing A New People.
