It Begins: House Democrats Want Obama To Pardon Illegal Aliens

Democrats keep proving why they have lost so many elected positions at the federal, state, county, and local levels

(The Hill) A group of House Democrats petitioned President Barack Obama Thursday to pardon undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children for their immigration violations.

Democratic Reps. Zoe Lofgren and Lucille Roybal-Allard of California, and Luis Gutierrez of Illinois said it is Obama’s “responsibility” to protect participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program from potential immigration enforcement measures taken by a Trump administration.

“We want the immigrant community to know that we are not giving up, we are going to fight for them, we are going to stand by them, we are on their side,” Lofgren said at the press conference.

In a letter to Obama, the proponents argued that the president’s power to grant pardons extends to civil immigration violations such as illegal entry, overstaying a visa and illegal presence.

Instead of worrying about the middle class, which, really, Democrats rarely do, they’re more concerned with people who came to the country illegally, whether they were young or not, over the needs of American citizens. Democrats do not care about the DREAMers per se, they just want their votes. Meanwhile, the rest of us are a wee bit upset about these illegal aliens demonstrating in the streets, demanding that they be legalized and given free things like a college education. They freak out about citizens flying the American flag, while they fly the Mexican flag and demand the American SW be returned to Mexico.

Anyhow, the White House has told these Congress Critters that they can’t, it wouldn’t give legal status, only Congress can do that.

In their letter, Lofgren, Gutierrez and Roybal-Allard warn that the Department of Homeland Security “now has fingerprints, home addresses, and other information to identify those DREAMers.”

“They are more at risk because they registered,” Gutierrez said.

Who did that? Perhaps if the DREAMers asked nicely, and showed that they love this country, things might go differently.
