Trump’s DHS Team Kills Barack Obama Amnesty Program

56

So much for DAPA, the amnesty program put forth by Barack Obama that would have given free U.S. access to roughly four million illegals.

The Department of Homeland Security secretary, John Kelly, killed the program. Ding-dong, the DAPA witch is dead. Finally.

John Kelly, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, gave the formal boot to DAPA, Barack Obama’s amnesty package for roughly four million illegals.

DAPA was already frozen by courts in 2016. But President Donald Trump had vowed from the campaign trail to tighten borders and reel back Obama’s amnesty visions — and Kelly just announced a major White House initiative toward that end.

From Breitbart:

“On June 15, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, after consulting with the Attorney General [Jeff Sessions], signed a memorandum rescinding the November 20, 2014 memorandum that created the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) because there is no credible path forward [in the courts] to litigate the currently enjoined policy.”

DAPA was loved by Democrats and special rights’ groups.

Its creation came in 2014, as a way Obama could thwart voter will.

But backlash was quick. In the next election, Republicans picked up 10 Senate seats, for the majority.

DAPA was never made into law.

From Breitbart again:

“[It] consisted of Oval Office instructions to deputies that they should not enforce immigration laws against illegal aliens who had children in the United States, sometimes called “anchor babies,” but must instead award work permits to the roughly 4 million illegal-alien parents.

“Obama’s DAPA promise of work permits for illegals was quickly blocked by a Texas-based judge, Andre Hanen, amid a lawsuit by a coalition of Governors and Attorneys General. The national GOP played little part in the lawsuit, titled United States v. Texas. The judge’s order later was backed by a Supreme Court decision in June 2016, in which all four of the Democratic-appointed judges supported Obama’s Oval Office amnesty.

“Since November, the Texas judge and agency officials have been waiting to see if Trump’s administration would defend Obama’s amnesty in court.”

Guess not.

  • Trump can’t ban islam

    great news, more room for muslims. muslims are LEGAL immigrants and they have RIGHTS. muslims can’t be deported because their religion islam is protected by the US constitution. as you write islamophobic comments, more muslims refugees keep entering USA. there are many millions of muslims in USA now, and growing. muslims are not stinking illegal mexicans you make to clean your bathrooms and then deport. Islam is in USA to stay. coexistance and integration are the key words. one morning you will wake up with the prettiest sound for many, the muslims calling from their minarets and it will be normal then.

    • Babydoll

      That will never happen in your lifetime,whoever you are. The American people will never give in to sharia law because we will Resist and fight to keep our constitution safe. God bless the United States of America!

      • Correct. And any so-called “call to prayer” from a minaret iis likely to lead to the unexplainable collapse of said minaret, just like the twin towers (and in remembrance of them).

        • absolut1

          yeah,the call to prayer is so offensive to good people,acts of god or nature could happen.

          • The “call to prayer” is noise pollution, pure and simple, imposed on entire populations for the alleged religious needs of a tiny minority. I suggest you move next to one of these minarets and get awaken at 5:00 am every day, and we’ll see how long you put up with it.

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      No we won’t. We know what you people are all about. No 4 a.m. yodelling for this lad.

    • pkm8382

      Did you ever hear of the 1952 McCarrin Walters Act? Muslems are not welcome in this country. It is against the law for them to be here. You certainly are delusional.

      • Trump can’t ban islam

        trump plays the bully against democrats, cuba, homos, toilet claners mexicans, etc but he doesn’t dare to messs against islam

        • marlene

          Islam will DIE – the sooner the better

        • Just you wait.

        • satcatchet

          Porkchop, you have nooo idea what you are facing.

      • marlene

        You are absolutely correct. See my comment to trumpcantbanislam just above.

      • satcatchet

        Amen. He will be eating pork chops soon. Bacon, bacon I smell bacon!

    • marlene

      Our Constitution BANS MUSLIMS from even entering our country! Immigrants are BANNED from having any rights other than civil and religious rights until they become American citizens. All privileges that do not extend to all American citizens equally are BANNED by our Constitution. Just because corrupt politicians and bureaucrats violate our Constitution, does NOT negate it. Muslims have slithered into our country like the cockroaches they are and ALL of them should be thrown out.

      • satcatchet

        Eating porkchops & bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos.

    • satcatchet

      Yep, in one boarder and out the other. Pine box or boat you choose, slug.
      Want some pork chops by the way?

  • overboosted ✓ᴰᴱᴾᴸᴼᴿᴬᴮᴸᴱ

    Now let’s start deporting the leeches!

    • Suresh

      We know how Trump is having hard time even stopping new jihadis from just 7 countries , you think its easy to deport them enmasse ?

      If at least the terrorists who have killed be deported along with their supporters that will send a message that they will not be tolerated.

      Then we have Left/liberal Media/Judges/politicians who get paid to shill for Islam even at cost of American security like Dems selling out on Iran nuke deal http://tinyurl.com/mcake4d

      All Lobbying for muslim countries should be stopped
      and that includes investment in media.

    • so,

      Pls sign petition to end DACA as well: https://www.numbersusa.com/take-action/thank-pres-trump-ending-dapa-and-extended-daca-amnesties
      otherwise we get media crying over deported parents while “children” are allowed to stay

      • Charlie Weir

        The children go with their parents of course.

        • so,

          Trump o.k’d DACA which means “dreamers” (children of illegals) can stay. this will be a nightmare.
          pls sign petition to end DACA also.

  • pdxnag

    #DACA is still illegal for same reason 5th Circuit said #DAPA was illegal. Illegal aliens must go home. Get in front line.

    Currently there is a ten year penalty before getting into front line. “Amnesty” (for DACA recipients) could be to adjust it to a two to five year penalty delay. — before getting into front line.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Please do not ship them North. Our leader is an adolescent trust-fund bubble-boy out to virtue-signal to the whole World. He doesn’t care that he’s ruining Canada with debt and imported death cult members..

    • Trump can’t ban islam

      nonsense. Canada, Europe are only allowing muslims refugees, nobody wants stinking needy, boring, toilet cleaners mexicans. the hand of mohammad is strong and grabbing

      • Beverly

        At least the Mexicans are working. Muslims not so much.

        • absolut1

          yup.

        • satcatchet

          They work. They are working hard to kill others. Anyone have some salt, slugs are everywhere?

          • Beverly

            Slugs are everywhere, including caucasians, blacks and all other ethnic groups. I am against illegal immigration, but I see no reason to slam all of an ethnic group for what some do. And, yes, there are some good Muslims as well.

      • Rob Porter

        Your are either a liar or fool because you either don’t know the facts or simply make up the lies and rubbish you talk. Mohammad died in 632AD you moron and his hand is just rotting bones, his stupid disciples grabbing anything to dishonest selves can grab.

        • satcatchet

          And moronhammed is the Anti -christ.

      • absolut1

        mexicans work hard,muzzies are only good for target practice.

        • satcatchet

          Cannon fodder, you can stuff more in a cannon and save powder! Now what did I do with those matches?

      • satcatchet

        And just how many Mexicans do you know/have know? Your a disgrace to humanity and a despicable was of skin. Please do us all a favor and just leave.
        Porkchops are ready!

    • Rob Porter

      Right on target, Raymond. The adolescent Justin is turning the country into a giant kindergarten. His idiotic statements would be comical if they were not his idea of being serious.

  • Chris Wolf

    obama: Still at-large

    • Mark Steiner

      Along with Hillary, Rice, Holder and Comey.

      • Chris Wolf

        …Lynch, Jarrett, Earnest, Rhodes, Axelrod, Kerry, Johnson, obama.

  • This is a good and necessary move, using the rule of law as it should be, regarding the status of those continually breaking our laws. We’ll have to see if genuine follow-through happens with the border wall (both physical and virtual), along with increased manning of the border, for without that, all other legislation will be pretty much meaningless. If a patient is losing massive amounts of blood, the first order of business is to stop the bleeding. In the same manner, in order to begin repairing the damage that illegal immigration is doing to the nation, the bleeding at the border has to be one of the first things that is remedied, which then needs to be followed up with enforcement of the immigration laws currently on the books.

    ’bout d. time …

  • marlene

    So why did the DHS order the Border Control to ‘negotiate’ with and not arrest illegals in Arizona’s camp? Also:
    On June 15, Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly, after consulting with the Attorney General, signed a memorandum rescinding the November 20, 2014 memorandum that created the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) because there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.

    The rescinded memo purported to provide a path for illegal aliens with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident child to be considered for deferred action. To be considered for deferred action, an alien was required to satisfy six criteria:

    (1) as of November 20, 2014, be the parent of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident;

    (2) have continuously resided here since before January 1, 2010;

    (3) have been physically present here on November 20, 2014, and when applying for relief;

    (4) have no lawful immigration status on that date;

    (5) not fall within the Secretary’s enforcement priorities; and

    (6) “present no other factors that, in the exercise of discretion, make [ ] the grant of deferred action inappropriate.”

    Prior to implementation of DAPA, twenty-six states challenged the policies established in the DAPA memorandum in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The district court enjoined implementation of the DAPA memorandum, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court’s decision, and the Supreme Court allowed the district court’s injunction to remain in place.

    The rescinded policy also provided expanded work authorization for recipients under the DACA program for three years versus two years. This policy was also enjoined nationwide and has now been rescinded.

    The June 15, 2012 memorandum that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will remain in effect.

  • Drew the Infidel

    With President Trump’s continued reversal of insane policies such as this and the Cuban policy along with a host of others, both foreign and domestic, of the last administration, there is the whine about “undoing Obhammud’s legacy”. I ask you, what f*cking legacy?

  • Peter Joffe

    We all need to realize, once and for all is that Obama’s Legacy was Islam. He did nothing for American and everything for terrosists to be.

  • John D. Horton

    Why can’t the same thing be done with unwanted immigrants aka “refugees”?

    The president has the right to just close:

    The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), a program of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), an office within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), created with the passing of the United States Refugee Act of 1980 (Public Law 96-212). See wikipedia: “Office of Refugee Resettlement”

    by transferring all of its employees to another area of the government.

    No more Office of Refugee Resettlement = No more refugees.

  • Stephen Honig

    When they said amnesty is dead, I thought they meant Obama. After reading the article I was so angry because I read it wrong. Maybe next time Pam will have good news for us.
