Immigration agents sue DHS over deferred-deportation policy

posted at 4:01 pm on August 23, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Ten federal immigration agents are filing a lawsuit against the Obama administration, arguing that the Department of Homeland Security’s more-lenient revisions of their deportation policy earlier this year are putting them between a rock and a hard place by preventing them from doing their jobs as-required by law. The Wash Times reports:

The 10 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and deportation officers said Mr. Obama’s policies force them to choose between enforcing the law and being reprimanded by superiors, or listening to superiors and violating their own oaths of office and a 1996 law that requires them to demand proof of legal status from those they suspect are not in the country legally.

Upping the ante, the agents are being represented by a high-profile lawyer, Kris W. Kobach, secretary of state in Kansas and the chief promoter of state immigration crackdowns such as Arizona’s tough law.

“ICE is at a point now where agents are being told to break federal law, they’re pretty much told that any illegal alien under age of 31 is going to be let go. You can imagine, these law enforcement officers are being put in a horrible position,” Mr. Kobach said.

Last week the Homeland Security Department began taking applications from those 30 years of age or younger who came to the U.S. as children and who have kept a fairly clean criminal record. They are being granted “deferred action,” which is an official notice they are not to be deported, and will be granted work permits to stay and get jobs legally in the U.S.

Secretary Napolitano, President Obama, etcetera have staunchly defended the legality of their directives and claimed they’re well within their rights of ‘prosecutorial discretion,’ but some Congressional Republicans aren’t so sure the administration hasn’t overstepped its bounds.

“The Obama administration makes it impossible for ICE agents to do their jobs,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) in a statement issued along with fellow Texas Republicans Reps. John Carter and Louie Gohmert.

“Instead of enforcing the law, the Obama administration requires ICE agents to release illegal immigrants,” Smith said.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has repeatedly said he plans on filing his own lawsuit against Napolitano arguing that the immigration directive is unconstitutional because it bypassed Congress’s authority.

“I said that I would bring a lawsuit against the President and that process is underway,” said King. “With just a few puzzle pieces to get in the right place, I will soon file that lawsuit.”

This is all part of the continuing fallout from this past June, when the Obama administration announced that they intended to stop deporting young illegal immigrants who have no criminal record and instead issue them work permits — a move that they positively insisted had absolutely nothing to do with politics, but was oh-so-clearly calculated to help them maintain Democrats’ overwhelming hold on the Hispanic vote. According to an NBC/WSJ/Telemundo poll out this week, it seems like they’re doing something right (or at least, not doing anything wrong), but whether that’ll be enough to inspire Hispanic voters to actually get to the polls in November is an entirely different question.

Hispanics, the largest-growing segment of the U.S. population over the past decade, said they preferred Obama over Romney in the presidential race, 63 to 28 percent. …

Despite President Obama’s June immigration announcement – which halted the deportation of illegal immigrants younger than 30 and who were brought to the United States as children – there has not been an uptick in Latino enthusiasm. That policy took effect Aug. 15, but Latino interest in this election is at its lowest point in the NBC-WSJ-Telemundo poll.

Just 61 percent of Latinos indicated a high level of enthusiasm in the upcoming election (registering an “8,” “9” or “10” on a 10-point scale). That’s 20 points below the average of 81 percent of all voters. And almost 20 points below 2008 levels for Latinos at about the same time before the election.

I think there are a lot of Dem leaning independents, and even Democrats, that could be persuaded that illegal immigration has gone overboard. And if Romney takes a firm and visible stand against illegal immigration and amnesty, these Dem leaning voters could be won over. Oddly and counter-intuitively, not that it matters much, but Mitt might actually win some Hispanic votes by standing up for principle on this. But Mitt shouldn’t try to run away from the issue, because that will impress no one.

ImageSniper on August 23, 2012 at 4:17 PM

It is simply false to claim that these broad directives to disregard immigration law constitute prosecutorial discretion.

Prosecutorial discretion is exercised on a case by case basis.

We owe these officers for taking their oaths to uphold the law seriously. Obama’s lawlessness will continue until he is stopped. That is how he rolls.

novaculus on August 23, 2012 at 4:18 PM

If King Obama wishes DHS agents to ignore some laws he needs to spell out in writing exactly which laws they should ignore and how they should handle any gray areas, ambiguities, and conflicts with other laws that arise.

The drafting of instructions to ignore laws on the books should follow the same rigorous process as the drafting of laws, to make sure all of the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. Otherwise, DHS agents are at risk of making a mistake in not enforcing the law. After all, a DHS agent needs something to refer if hauled before court and questioned about not enforcing a law in a particular situation. If nothing else they need a note from King Obama that they can hand over to the judge.

farsighted on August 23, 2012 at 4:23 PM

Lawyers…Bah! As politiciansm, they make the law into whatever confusion they want, then as prosecutors read the laws the way they want and arrest and prosecute only the ones they want and then, as judges they hang only the ones they want.

Frankly, let’s swap illegals one for one for deporting one lawyer.

We are a nation of law, and those laws must be enforced equitably, without preference or prejudice.

So, we have an unemployment problem in this country and the solution is to legalize a bunch of people who will then take away jobs by working for lower wages? Damn, this Obama guy is brilliant!

Personally, I’d like to see the illegal immigrant problem solved by fining or jailing every employer who hires an illegal. The illegals will self-deport and the problem will be solved.

DHS spokesman Matt Chandler gave the following statement on Thursday, following a federal lawsuit filed against Secretary Napolitano and Asst. Sec. John Morton alleging that their “directives” are forcing agents to break federal laws and violate their oath to protect the U.S.

“DHS uses prosecutorial discretion to assist in focusing vigorously on the removal of individuals who are convicted criminals, repeat immigration law violators, and recent border crossers.

In FY 2011, ICE removed more than 216,000 convicted criminal aliens, the largest number in the agency’s history and an 89 percent increase in the removal of criminals since the previous administration. Overall, more than ninety percent of ICE’s removals fell within our priority categories.

The Secretary’s memo on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a continuation of the Department’s focus on these priorities, and ensures that responsible young people, who are Americans in every way but on paper, have an opportunity to remain in the country and make their fullest contribution. This policy is a temporary measure; Congress must still act to provide a permanent solution to fix the broken immigration system.”

This is what they do, and the constitution will not stand in the way. Wealth taxes of 5% to 10% to de facto confiscate property, businesses and assets. These assets then are earmarked for redistribution schemes. That’s why immigration matters, and Mitt best take a stand so we have a mandate.

Except in small areas, I think the so-called “Hispanic” vote is vastly overrated.

Locally, one town was investigated by Herr Holder and his minions because “local Hispanic activists” alleged there was ‘discrimination’ as there was only one Hispanic on the city council. Although comprising 48% of the population, only about 18% bothered to register to vote. Of course, left unsaid and unmentioned, was how many of that 48% were in the country ILLEGALLY.

pssst….your open borders policy has allowed more criminals into the US than the previous administration, that and your misguided attempts to de-criminalize crossing the border leads to utter disrespect for the law….meaning more illegal aliens are committing crimes. Did I mention your economic policies are also to blame for the increase in criminal deportations? You see…when the economy tanked at your direction, the first folks let go are the ones that aren’t’ supposed to be here. Some went home on their own. Some turned to crime. Your statistic is of your own making. You’ve made a mess, and now you want us to pat you on the back for cleaning it up.

Used by the two party evil money cult of Washington D.C..

Keep in mind every low bid contract let by any goverment org. , school dist. , county, city, state, federal gets awared to the low bid. The low bid every last one of these elected officals know goes to the company who uses and pays the illegals the lest and has the highest numbers working for them.

They all know, and they do it to get re-elected.
If they paid Americans living wages they would have to raise taxes 10 fold. So they cheat U.S. out of our citizenship.

It took my son 10 months, an attorney and $10,000 to brink his fiancé here legally from Europe. It included submission of pay stubs, educational record verification and a criminal background check . She was required to produce the same documentation including proof of her MBA. Then there was an additional fee for the green card. She recently completed the required time limit and is now a US citizen and just in time for a Romney vote.

Lol, simple they will find rich black, brown, red and yellow people to sponge off. Red, yellow black and white they are precious in Obama’s sight. I mean you do realize most of the people in the power structure weakening our immigration laws are white. Affirmative action run by and created by whites
mainly benefiting white women. There are also many whites
telling minorites to hate the other white people they don’t agree with. They are called Democrats, the founders of the KKK.

At that point, they will probably just tell them to kill ya and people like me who don’t live on the plantation.

In addition, she must have submitted a ” disease free” certificate too, before she they approved a green card , which illegals from latino countries are not even required to have because it is racist or something

This.
We need legal immigrants that went through the process to become legal citizens. Explain what they had to prove, the cost, the time needed.
Instead, we see mom and her seven anchor babies whining that immigration rules are racist while they take more money than they contribute, if they even pay taxes.

Here’s an idea for an ad: show some legal immigrants who dotted every “i”, crossed every “t”, and jumped through every hoop — have them share their reactions to the DHS policy that rewards those who broke the law.

Yep You must remind the honest people of the cost they paid monetarily too in the ad! My wife and Mother in law cost in fees over $20,000 and my sister in law has been waiting since 2006. Sis in law’s papers are approved, but they are still trying to approve peoples visas from 2005. You would think with all the government workers Zero has added he’d add a few more people to process foreign visas.

Only in an election year Obamanation do scofflaw criminals get rewarded for being scofflaws.

It’s like Superman’s Bizarro World — only our wheels are still round — for now.

Heh. Here in Utah, pro-Obama amnesty Attorney General (Mark Shurtleff) is all worked up over this and calling on Mitt Romney (in a tweet) to fire Kris Kobach because of the lawsuit and Kobach’s involvement in the GOP platform.

Secretary Napolitano, President Obama, etcetera have staunchly defended the legality of their directives and claimed they’re well within their rights of ‘prosecutorial discretion,’ but some Congressional Republicans aren’t so sure the administration hasn’t overstepped its bounds.

Doesn’t matter. Chief Justice Roberts has demonstrated he accepts such reasoning.

Since whitey will be of no use, whitey will have to die .
There is no room for whitey under sharia, everybody knows that

That’s kinda wasteful, I think they keep whitey around for the jobs muslims and latinos won’t do, ya know, picking crops, mowing lawns and cleaning toilets.

They expect whitey to be competing with blacks for those jobs.

Big Sis = big, dumb, designated fall guy when something is successfully smuggled into El Norte and is released/detonated and the SHTF.

Out here in California, the DMV is trying to figure out a way to jam in whatever document that Obama produces for the Illegals.

See, if they can jam in the paperwork, then they can check the box for mail-in motor voters and claim they did not know as there are no defined rules. Since they are only estimating an additional 400,000+ they are hoping to get it in for this election.

Failing at that, the legislature is trying to change the voter registration process to allow same day registrations. That way, someone could just walk up with their new UNVERIFIABLE drivers license and vote in multiple voting precincts and cast vote after vote.

Since they do not have any process, or even a plan to pretend they have a process, for catching anyone committing such a fraud, there is little risk.

The Ca unions already know that they cannot push thru their massive tax increases in any sort of honest election. And with that Prop-32 on the ballot, they will do ANYTHING to keep their cash flow comming!

Big Sis is still waiting for her mentor Ms. Reno to come back in the red pick-up to get her so they can recreate a Thelma and Louise trick.
