That didn’t take long, did it?
Less than 24 hours after president Obama issued his decree of deferred deportation for over 5 million illegal aliens, the status of the newly pardoned has already been upgraded.
No longer are they shadow-dwelling “undocumented immigrants” who’re afraid to come forth. Nope. According to the White House, they’re now, “new Americans.”
“The President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable, and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules. Acting within his legal authority, the President is taking an important step to fix our broken immigration system.
These executive actions crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay their fair share of taxes as they register to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.
These are common sense steps, but only Congress can finish the job. As the President acts, he’ll continue to work with Congress on a comprehensive, bipartisan bill—like the one passed by the Senate more than a year ago—that can replace these actions and fix the whole system. […]
Creating a White House Task Force on New Americans. The President is creating a White House Task Force on New Americans to create a federal strategy on immigrant integration.”
White House Task Force on New Americans, huh?
Seems those calling the president’s actions “amnesty” are spot-on.
