OUTRAGEOUS! Obama quietly changes US immigration policy to make it easier for potential Muslim terrorists to get in
The Obama Regime quietly announced in December ’09 that it would overturn one of the harsh immigration enforcement measures enacted by the Bush administration following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. You know, those ‘harsh’ measures that kept us safe for eight years.
(New America Media) Dec. 29, 2009 – Beginning next month, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said, those who arrive in the United States seeking asylum will no longer automatically be welcomed with handcuffs and months in a jail cell. Instead, many of those seeking protection will again be permitted to live freely in the country while their applications for permanent asylum are considered by an immigration judge.
The measure is the latest in a string of little-noticed initiatives by the Obama DHS to reconsider some of the most controversial enforcement policies of the past decade. The administration in August launched an overhaul of the immigration detention system, which had grown out of control as the number of detainees doubled in just five years to more than 440,000annually. (Detainees doubled and no there were no terrorist incidents in America, unlike Obama’s America 2009)
The administration has also largely halted workplace raids that resulted in jailing, deportation and even criminal charges for many unauthorized workers. And DHS has curbed the authority of state and local police forces to demand immigration documents from anyone stopped for minor offenses like traffic violations, saying that such checks should be done only for those jailed on criminal charges, particularly for serious criminal offenses. To drive home the point, DHS in October stripped the notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona of federal authority to make immigration-related arrests.
