Obama EO Granting Amnesty
To Illegals - Not So

By Devvy
Exclusive to Rense
My email box is overflowing with the following caption: Obama has issued an executive order granting amnesty to illegals!...and several variations thereof.
But is it true?
The first place to look for an executive order is the White House's web site. Combing through EOs back to November 2010, I can find no such executive order.
WND published an article about this very issue, June 25, 2011, and it's a good place to start. 
Obama slips DREAM Act amnesty past Congress
"A new enforcement memo handed down by the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week has some accusing the White House of running around Congress to implement the DREAM Act ­ and consequent amnesty for some illegal immigrants ­ by executive fiat.
"The new memo, penned by ICE Director John Morton, directs ICE agents, attorneys and directors to exercise "prosecutorial discretion" ­ meaning less likelihood of deportation ­ for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.
"Critics have pointed out the new leniency standards parallel the provisions of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act, which could not pass the Senate, despite several votes over the past decade, including three failed attempts at passage last year."
The key is an internal link in the article above "The new memo". When you click on that, it takes you here. You'll see a June 17, 2011, memo issued by ICE for "Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion Consistent with the Civil Immigration Enforcement Priorities of the Agency for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Aliens". That document is six pages, and as they say, the devil is in the details. On page 3 you find this:
Prosecutorial discretion in civil immigration enforcement matters is held by the Director2
So, then you go to footnote 2 at the bottom of the page and find this:
2 Delegation of Authority to the Assistant Secretary, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Delegation No. 7030.2 (November 13, 2004), delegating among other authorities, the authority to exercise prosecutorial discretion in immigration enforcement matters (as defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1101 (a)(17).
That Delegation of Authority is 2004 - under the Bush Administration, not the usurper. 
I then hunted down 8 U.S.C. § 1101 (a)(17) - the all important statute that allegedly gives prosecutorial discretion authority to the Assistant Secretary, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. I had a bit of difficulty locating it because all those EOs and statutes are like digging through a vat of spaghetti, so I thank my friend, constitutional attorney, Tommy Cryer for his help. One thread leads to twenty. Sometimes an EO or statute is repealed or rescinded; it's maddening to say the least. In any event, here is the statute. 
Next we go find 1101 (a)(17):
(a)(17) The term 'immigration laws' includes this chapter and all laws, conventions, and treaties of the United States relating to the immigration, exclusion, deportation, or expulsion of aliens. 
Do you see any delegation of authority regarding prosecutorial discretion that sentence? I don't. 
I could not find an executive order signed by the putative president (meaning he has no authority to execute one) going back to Nov. 2010 giving amnesty to illegal aliens.
The June 17, 2011, memo cites a Bush Administration Delegation document defining the authority to "exercise prosecutorial discretion in immigration enforcement matters". The problem, at least to me and I'm not an attorney, is that the statute provided, 8 U.S.C. § 1101 (a)(17), does no such thing. Unless I've missed something here, it appears someone is trying to pull a fast one.
That is what YOU need to bring to the attention of your congress critter this week; the sooner the better. Make the time, please.
Without question, if you read the memo, it is an end run around the Constitution. It is blanket amnesty for illegal aliens and must be stopped. 
There has never been any intention by sitting presidents since and including Ronald Reagan to lock down our borders and deport illegal aliens. What we've seen is the bare minimum effort to appease the masses. The excuse in the memo mentioned above is that ICE doesn't have sufficient financial resources to round up and deport illegal aliens or even process and deport the hordes.
Whose fault is that? The 86% of incumbents voted back into the Outlaw Congress last November who have allowed this unchecked invasion of criminals into our house. 
It's just fine to spend $2 million borrowed dollars a day for the newest illegal bombing of Libya. It's okay for the outlaws in Congress to send the barbaric communist Chinese government $800 million dollars a week in interest on debt created by them. But, there's no money to lock down our borders and boot out illegals.
All by design in pursuit of one world government with seamless borders. Doesn't matter about the illegal aliens who rape and kill children, who drive drunk on our streets and highways killing thousands and thousands. Doesn't matter that 11.5 MILLION jobs are held by illegals while almost 26 million Americans are out of work and 44 million are on food stamps. It is all in the game. As mentioned in the WND article above, Barry Soetoro, is aggressively pushing giving a free pass to criminals for the Latino vote in 2012. Hey, come in, register Democrat and we will make sure the people are driven into rags so you can have all I promised!
Make that call on Monday and demand your congress critter look into that memo. Be polite, but in the strongest terms, tell him/her you want to know where is the statute authorizing blanket amnesty for illegals? Demand they act now to stop it. Put on the heat, America.
