Obama Will Not Use Executive Authority To Stop Deportations Of Undocumented Students And Their Parents

Influencial Hispanics failed to convince Obama to use executive power to stop massive deportations.

Washington, D.C. – On Thursday for the second time in ten days, President Barack H. Obama failed to exercise his executive authority to stop massive deportations of noncriminal undocumented immigrants, students and their parents. Obama met with a group of Hispanics from accross the U.S. at the White House. The Latinos present at the meeting are recognized by White House officials as influencial and were there to discuss fixing the broken federal immigration system in the country, including comprehensive immigration reform for the future. Apparently, those attending the meeting lacked enough influence and failed to push for Obama to use his executive authority to stop deportations citing the president “can not change the law.”
According to the Readout press release of the meeting, President Obama told the attendees that the only way to fix what’s broken about our immigration system is through legislative action in Congress, and that “he cannot unilaterally change the law.” He made it clear that while his Administration continues to improve our legal immigration system, secure our borders, and enhance our immigration enforcement so that it is more effectively and sensibly focused on criminals, more voices are needed to elevate the immigration debate beyond the politics, false debates, and rhetoric that have dominated the issue.
The President urged meeting participants to help elevate the debate, and to reach out in their unique capacities and in a public way to forge partnerships across sectors and across demographics. There was broad agreement that more voices are needed to change the tone of the debate so that Congress acts to fix the broken system in a way that upholds America’s history as nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. The President reaffirmed that he will continue to work to forge bipartisan consensus and will intensify efforts to lead a civil debate on this issue in the coming weeks and months.
The President talked about the broken immigration system including concerns he heard about when he met with leaders from the law enforcement, faith and business sectors last week.
Absent from the White House meeting was U.S. Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) who has publicly stated that Obama could used his executive authority to stop deportations of noncriminal undocumented immigrants, students attending colleges and parents of U.S. born children. Gutierrez went on a three state listening tour on April 16, and continued to advocate and vowed to pursue the passage of the DREAM Act. Last year, the DREAM Act was killed in the U.S. Senate, because it failed to get the needed 60 votes to prevent a filibuster inorder for the bill to proceed for a Senate vote.
In his stop in Wisconsin, Gutierrez said, President Obama has the executive privilege to use discretion and to stop the mass deportations of undocumented parents of more than 4 million U.S. born children. President Obama hasn’t kept his word in passing immigration reform or hasn’t used his discretion to allow millions of undocumented students to stay in the country while Congress can work out differences and pass the DREAM Act.
President Obama could actually issue an executive pardon as well for those in the country illegally. Being in the country illegally is a federal civil offense and not a felony offense. Obama can even issue an executive order for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to put priority in detaining and deporting undocumented criminals convicted of serious crimes such as felonies. Instead of ICE and DHS concentrating and detaining noncriminal undocumented immigrants and students raised in the U.S. and pursuing a college education to become productive residents.
About, 400 thousand undocumented immigrants are deported every year from the U.S. and with the Secure Communities Program (SCP) implemented by ICE, the deportations could rise to 800,000 per year. Gutierrez criticized the SCP for over reaching and not following the memorandum agreement with states including Wisconsin.
Under the SCP agreement, the program specified that undocumented immigrants considered criminals and convicted of a felony should be targeted for deportation. But in many cases noncriminals have been processed under SCP and hard working undocumented immigrants have been deported, separating families, according to Gutierrez.
Next Sunday on May 1st, over 100 cities around the nation will hold massive marches and rallies calling for immigrant and workers rights. Organizers want President Obama to stop massive deportations and they are also opposing similar Arizona SB 1070 immigration enforcement laws in their states. The law allows state and local law enforcement officers to ask for legal status documentation from people they suspect are illegally in the country during traffic stops or general investigations.

Obama Releases Own Live Birth Certificate Assuring His Right To Run For U.S. President

Live birth certificate proves President Obama born in U.S.

April 27, 2011

Washington, D.C. – On Wednesday morning, President Barack H. Obama released his live birth long form certificate to prove he was born in the U.S. as required to run for the Presidency. The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate from the many challenges the country faces today should be resolved. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to release a copy of his long form birth certificate.
“As many of you have been briefed, we provided additional information today about the site of my birth. Now, this issue has been going on for two, two and a half years now. I think it started during the campaign. I have watched with bemusement. I’ve been puzzled at the degree to which this thing just kept on going. We’ve had every official in Hawaii, Democrat and Republican, every news outlet that has investigated this, confirm that, yes, in fact, I was born in Hawaii, August 4, 1961, in Kapiolani Hospital.
We’ve posted the certification that is given by the state of Hawai on the Internet for everybody to see.  People have provided affidavits that they, in fact, have seen this birth certificate.  And yet this thing just keeps on going,” Obama told the nation during a press conference.
Obama is hoping that the issues affecting the country will become the main focus from now on instead of where he was actually born.

El Chapo Guzman Loera, Sinaloa Drug Lord Sought In England, Had A Face Change

Mexico City – The Mexican Attorney General’s Office (PGR), several United States federal law enforcement agencies and European law enforcement agencies, including Scotland Yard in a joint operation are looking into allegations that Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera has been living in London undetected. Mexican federal sources indicate the Sinaloa Cartel drug lord “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera had a face change and is currently living in England. A $5 million U.S. dollars reward has been offered for information leading to El Chapo’s arrest and conviction.
El Chapo had been in hiding since his daring prison escape 10 years ago. In 2001, he made a gran escape from the Puente Grande maximum prison in Jalisco. Guzmán Loera managed to hid inside a laundry truck and managed to escape without being detected by prison guards who by the most part were involved in the escape. Guzmán Loera was captured in 1993 and convicted on both drug and homicide charges in Mexico.

Milwaukee County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jorge after causing an accident along I-894/43 and Highway36, Loomis Road ramp. Jorge was traveling eastbound on westbound I-894 lane around 1:00 a.m. when he got into a head-on collision with an SUV going West.

An SUV driver was also rescued and Jorge including the two victims of the accident were taken to Froedtert Hospital. All are expected to survive.

Jorge’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.19, more than twice the legal limit allowed to drive, according to the criminal complaint. He is considered undocumented and illegally in the country.
He is facing several charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) and causing bodily harm while OWI. Sheriff investigators are looking into Jorge’s encounter with a Greenfield police officer during a traffic stop before the accident occured. No further comment was released from the sheriff’s office.
A hold was placed on Jorge by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
