Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson is a busy man spinning the disaster at the Southern border laying blame on Congress.
Although the Obama administration labels the flow of children a “humanitarian” crisis rather than an enforcement problem, Mr. Johnson said he has directed agents to go after the smuggling networks that control the traffic across the border and are thought to be responsible for encouraging Guatemalans, Hondurans and Salvadorans to cross the U.S. border.
He also said the U.S. needs a “robust” public relations campaign to discourage Central Americans from attempting the journey and to warn of the dangers along the way.
Sadly however, Johnson is so wrong on every front as this insurgency was concocted by the White House exclusively and effectively advertised and sold to Central and South America effectively.
Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras are promoting policies by the Obama administration that defer deportation to minors brought to the United States as children by their parents — known as “Dreamers” — and those that are housing illegal children at military bases in the South and West.
Signed by President Barack Obama in 2012, the policy grants temporary legal status to many young illegal immigrants, ending the threat of deportation for at least two years.
The policy, however, does not entitle the immigrants to state services. It was renewed for two more years.
“With the renewal of DACA, we act according to our values and code of this great nation,” Johnson said. “But the biggest task of comprehensive immigration reform is yet to come.”
In November 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the U.S. was pledging $100 million to support Latino entrepreneurs through a public-private partnership dubbed La Idea. The effort, Clinton said, “brings together diaspora communities, the private sector, and public institutions to work on some of the toughest issues we face.” She noted her excitement about one of the central elements of La Idea: a pitch competition calling for “ideas for new businesses that will create jobs and promote trade and investment” in Latin America.
Similar to other entrepreneurship programs backed by the U.S. government in Africa and the Caribbean, the La Idea contest revolves around the idea that the more than 2.3 million Latino entrepreneurs in the U.S. have plenty to teach their counterparts in Latin America, and vice-versa. The big idea is to encourage them to form partnerships and expand their ventures across the Americas to spur economic development, says Jane Buhks, a marketing and communications specialist at New York-based Accion U.S. Network, which is handling the contest’s administration.
The borders of North America under the Obama administration are only implied now and have no significance. There are many government agencies that are part of the edict from the Obama White House such that it involves, DHS, State, DoJ, Department of Education and Health and Human Services, all these secretaries have signed on. The rewards for the illegals are wide and deep at the expense of the taxpayer all without notice or approval.
A new federal policy allows young unauthorized immigrants who are low enforcement priorities to remain in the country temporarily. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy allows the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to exercise prosecutorial discretion in granting administrative relief from deportation for young people covered by the policy. A person who receives deferred action is considered to be lawfully present. Deferred action status, however, does not grant the immigrant any substantive rights, legal immigration status or a pathway to citizenship. Deferred action recipients are not eligible for the Children’s Health Insurance Program or Medicaid, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Deferred action is permitted for a period of two years and can be renewed.
Those granted deferred action may apply for work authorization. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) began to accept applications for deferred action as of Aug. 15, 2012. This policy change was made via a policy memorandum issued June 15, 2012, by the secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The most important document of all is from the State Department, which demonstrates and aggressive and proactive objective to reach out to other countries, any country and encourage them to come to the United States, joining all races and cultures into one and the very easy path to U.S. citizenship.
Sovereignty is damned, the definition of ‘citizen’ is damned, law are damned and the taxpayer is damned.
