Administration Scheming to By-Pass Congress with Mass Amnesty
After a couple of very quiet weeks, things became a bit hectic this week after our very own Director of Government Relations, Rosemary Jenks, learned of an Amnesty plan being discussed behind closed doors that includes the abuse of executive actions. The news was made public on Tuesday when Sen. Chuck Grassley drafted a letter signed by seven other Senators, asking the White House for answers.
So what exactly is being discussed behind closed doors by the Democratic Leadership?
Since Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can’t secure enough votes in Congress to pass a mass Amnesty bill this year, the Obama Administration is thinking of using two executive actions to offer an Amnesty to the nation’s estimated 11-18 million illegal aliens.
By using ‘deferred action’ or ‘parole’, the Administration is planning to provide the nation’s illegal aliens with work permits and temporary legal status while Congress searches for votes on a mass Amnesty bill.
Although legislation grants the administration authority to issue such reprieves, they were intended to be used on a case-by-case basis, and only for extenuating circumstances. Clearly, they weren’t intended for more than 10 million illegal aliens at one time.
Since we learned of this ‘sneaky amnesty plan’, you’ve sent nearly 300,000 faxes to the White House and your three Members of Congress. We’ve posted two phone notes on your Action Board with talking points for calls to your Members of Congress and Pres. Obama. We’ve also started a new petition to the President, voicing opposition to this plan.
