Obama to stop deporting illegal relatives of U.S. troops, veterans

Post  fshnski on Fri Nov 15, 2013 8:22 pm

The Obama administration on Friday carved out yet another category of illegal immigrants it says it will no longer deport — in this case saying that relatives of U.S. troops and veterans who previously served can apply to stay in the country.

The administration said it was making the move because it was worried illegal immigration was hurting military readiness, and this would be a way to relieve some of the “stress and anxiety” faced by troops whose relatives are illegal immigrants.

It is all in the bias of the writer

Post  obervantone on Fri Nov 15, 2013 10:16 pm

So you object to the families of American Service Men and Women, currently serving our nation and those that have honorably served our nation, the option of gaining visas to remain in the US?  You would rather have the famlies of those serving our country and having already honorably served, deported by a "Grateful Nation"?

The move by President Obama allows those families to avoid the "Catch 22" of returning to their homeland to apply for a visa, but then being separated from loved ones because they would have to wait for years to return to the US. Instead this allows them to be able to apply for a visa here, without leaving.  

What a horrible thing to do to our country to benefit some of our American Service Men and Women and their families!



NY Times
Immigrants Closely Tied to Military Get Reprieve

By JULIA PRESTON

Published: November 15, 2013
The Obama administration issued a new policy on Friday that will allow immigrants in the United States illegally who are close relatives of active military troops and veterans to stay and move toward becoming permanent residents.

The long-awaited memorandum, coming after three years of deliberations by Department of Homeland Security officials, was an effort to untangle knots in immigration law that left many soldiers worried that their immigrant family members could be deported while they were deployed.

The administration applied the policy broadly, extending it to all active-duty members of the armed forces, to reservists including the National Guard, and to all veterans. Their spouses, children and parents will be eligible for a “parole in place,” a term that means they will be authorized to remain in the United States and many can proceed with applications for legal residency.

“This is an enormous step forward for military families and military readiness,” said Margaret D. Stock, a lawyer at Cascadia Cross-Border Law in Anchorage, who is a retired Army Reserve lieutenant colonel. “These problems had been a complete nightmare for many military people to deal with.”

The shift comes as legislation to grant legal status to millions of illegal immigrants has stalled in Congress, with Republican leaders in the House saying this week that they would not hold immigration votes this year or enter negotiations over a broad bill that the Senate passed in June. Obama administration officials said the new rules were based on existing statutes, and did not create any new legal status that would require action by Congress.

“In order to reduce the uncertainty our active-duty and retired military personnel face because of the immigration status of their family members, we have decided to clarify existing policies,” said Peter Boogaard, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security.

Immigrants without papers generally have to leave the country to collect visas they applied for through marriage to an American citizen or some other family tie. But, in a notorious Catch-22, once those immigrants leave they are barred from returning for years. Under the new policy, those immigrants who are in military families will not have to leave to complete their visa applications.

Faced with the legal quandary, many service members chose not to apply for papers for immigrant spouses and relatives, often keeping their immigration status secret. As a result, there is no way of knowing how many immigrants will be affected by the new policy, but it could be tens of thousands.

Immigrants involved will have work permits and will have to renew their documents yearly.

Several Hispanic organizations, including the League of United Latin American Citizens, hailed the policy, noting that many Hispanics serve in the armed forces. In addition to American citizens, permanent residents and some other legal immigrants are eligible to serve in the military.  

But many immigrant groups immediately called on President Obama to extend the reprieve to more foreigners here illegally.

“The administration’s action clearly shows that the president can use his power to stop the pain in our communities and grant relief to our families,” said Cristina Jimenez, managing director of United We Dream, a youth organization.

I can afford the house I live in. I couldn't afford to buy and maintain another house. It would make even less sense if some one else was going to live in that second house I couldn't afford.

Check back on the last few weeks and you will find obama trying to manipulate the news every Friday. He is trying to shift the weekend news away from talking about his obamacare failure.

Another way to bring a whole family here. First, have a baby (called anchor babies I believe). THen the whole family can come here to live. Now, join the service, then the whole family can come here to live so the service person won't be stressed.

Legalizing illegal immigrants is the solution to Obamacare: Democrat

Post  fshnski on Sat Nov 16, 2013 8:50 am

Rep. Jared Polis said Friday the key problem with health care right now is that illegal immigrants aren’t included in Obamacare, and said part of the solution is to pass a bill granting them citizenship rights.

The House is debating a GOP-written bill that would allow Americans to keep their health plans that have been canceled under Obamacare, but Mr. Polis, a Colorado Democrat, said the chamber should instead be looking at ways to make sure everyone in the country is covered by the Affordable Care Act — including illegal immigrants.

“American citizens are essentially being forced to pay for the health care costs of people who are here illegally every day, until we pass comprehensive immigration reform,” he said. “We’re wondering why rates are going up. … It’s no surprise. When somebody doesn’t have insurance, their costs are shifted onto other people that do.”

Illegal immigrants are one of the few categories of people in the U.S. who aren’t subjected to Obamacare’s individual mandate requiring all people to have health insurance coverage. They also aren’t eligible for taxpayer subsidies to buy insurance on the health exchanges, nor are they supposed to be getting assistance under Medicaid.

When other Illegals were "made Legal", Uncles, Cousins, and even Half-brothers have been able to gain citizenship. Just in Mexico, that's a lot of new DNC voters!

That is precisely the mentality that cost Romney the election, and the Republicans still don't get it by stonewalling immigration reform!

What cost Romney the election was lies and promises from obama to the least qualified voters in the country. And lies and manipulation from the main stream media.

So here you are, complaining about the United States of America supporting the men and women who serve our country in the military by allowing any undocumented immediate family members the option of "Parole in Place". Immediate family members are spouses, children, parents.

Way to support our troops, you are a fine American!

Then you criticize the "mainstream media" all the while using as your source of information The Washington Times. I pee myself laughing every time you do that!

I already know that I am un-American, a racist, a teabagger, a hostage taker and a terrorist. I have heard it all before.

It is not undocumented, it is illegal. It is not immediate, it is illegal.

You are un-American because you support illegal aliens over Americans.

You proved your bigotry with your demeaning of anybody not like you.

Plus you have stinky pants.

We can't learn from Britain?


Daily Mail (UK)

Roger Daltrey, the frontman of The Who, has said he will “never, ever” forgive Labour for their policies on immigration. The singer accused the Labour Party of “destroying the jobs of my mates” by not controlling mass immigration when in power. Mr. Daltrey, 69, said the reason he no longer supports the Labour Party is because of “stupid thinking on Europe” that allowed large numbers of EU nationals to work in England. …

America's Habit with Illegal Drugs...

Post  News Hawk on Sun Feb 01, 2015 8:44 am

The economies of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras remain bogged down as the rest of the Americas surge forward.

Inadequate education, institutional corruption, rampant crime and a lack of investment are holding these countries back. Six million young Central Americans are to enter the labor force in the next decade. If opportunity isn’t there for them, the entire Western Hemisphere will feel the consequences."
NYTs

The three Central American governments are urging the United States to shoulder the lion's share of the costs, arguing that U.S. demand for illegal narcotics has fueled violence among drug gangs across much of the impoverished region.
Reuters

...and New Hampshire Liberals want to bring even more drugs into the state...!

No
