Join the Effort to HALT Obama’s Backdoor Amnesty

“The Obama administration has begun approving young illegal immigrants’ requests to stay in the country under President Barack Obama’s deferred action program, the Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday,” Jen Epstein of Politico reports.

“Three months after Obama announced the program and one month after the department began taking applications, more than 72,000 people have made requests for two years of deferred action – which can be renewed – and a work permit.”

President Obama’s backdoor Amnesty program is causing a meltdown in our efforts to secure our borders. As crazy as it sounds, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are being threatened with disciplinary action by their superiors for…enforcing our immigration laws!

  • In El Paso, two ICE agents doing an inmate screening discovered an ILLEGAL alien who had been arrested for domestic assault. The ILLEGAL alien assaulted an officer while trying to escape. Then amazingly he was released according to Obama’s order — and the two ICE officers were questioned for possible disciplinary action!
  • An ICE agent in Delaware was threatened with suspension if he didn’t release an ILLEGAL alien caught during a criminal investigation who had 10 prior traffic violations.
  • Ten ICE agents have now filed a lawsuit against Obama’s Amnesty — including the president of the ICE union — because it forces them to either violate the law or face disciplinary action.

Though the law says that ILLEGAL aliens are to be held, Obama is telling ICE agents to ignore the law and listen to him instead! He is claiming the power to decide America’s immigration policy without consulting Congress or the American people.

Obama’s goal is to create a de facto Amnesty for ILLEGAL immigrants by not enforcing the law. Then he will bully us into submitting to his wishes to make them citizens.

Obama’s reckless disregard for our laws and our Constitution must be stopped. That’s why it’s so important that we pass the HALT Act – “Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation” – sponsored by Congressman Lamar Smith.

“DHS’s (Department of Homeland Security) plan to open the door to mass administrative amnesty is a rejection of Congress’ constitutional rights and shows utter disdain towards the wishes of the American people,” Smith explained in a July hearing on the HALT Act.

HALT (HR 2497) would stop Obama’s backdoor Amnesty effort dead in its tracks because it ties Obama’s hands by cutting off funding. Your support is crucial to putting this issue on the front burner of the national debate during this ongoing presidential election season.

Please add your name to the roster of supporters of Rep. Smith’s HALT Act and encourage others to join you in telling the President that he can’t ignore the law or change it without going through Congress!
