Obama administration announces new hotline for illegal aliens

by Peter Grady –

In another assault on states attempting to combat illegal aliens, the federal government has launched a new federal hotline for aliens arrested for immigration violations.

In a press release on Dec. 29 announcing the hotline, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says it is establishing a new toll free number that will be staffed 24/7 with ICE personnel at the Law Enforcement Support Center.

ICE says the number is for detained individuals who believe they are U.S. citizens and that the hotline is “part of a broader effort to improve our immigration enforcement process and prioritize resources to focus on threats to public safety, repeat immigration law violators, recent border entrants, and immigration fugitives while continuing to strengthen oversight of the nation’s immigration detention system and facilitate legal immigration.”

Another policy change modifies the detainer form to include a provision that allows ICE agents to “make the detainer operative only upon the individual’s conviction of the offense for which he or she was arrested.” In other words, law enforcement is to ignore the detainer unless the alien is convicted of the offenses he or she was arrested for, if not, the illegal alien is released.

The administration has also taken the step of pursuing legal options against states that are simply attempting to enforce federal laws that are being ignored by the administration.

Recently a federal judge stopped major provisions of South Carolina’s immigration law from taking effect after being challenged by the Justice Department. The DOJ has also taken Arizona to court for its passage of SB 1070, which mirrored federal law. In a report to the United Nations Human rights Council, the administration specifically mentioned Arizona’s  immigration law.

Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), claims the hotline is intended to buy the illegal aliens time to avoid being deported. “”This is all part of an ongoing policy by this administration to make sure that unless you’ve committed some serious crime here in the United States that you are not going to be removed. And that is what the administration has been working on for some time.”

With any type of immigration reform being unlikely in an election year, Mehlman says this is a way for Obama to placate members of his base who are demanding some type of action on the issue.

    Which Presidential candidate will stop the illegal alien invasion into this sovereign nation? OR DO THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT VOTES AND CHEAP LABOR?

    Investigate what you can do for 22 million jobless American workers and how to contain President Obama from his discretionary means to alter immigration laws. A new amnesty according to the ‘Heritage Foundation’ would add another $2.6 TRILLION DOLLARS to the financial U.S. Treasury ceiling of $15 TRILLION DOLLARS and rising daily. We must arrest the abuse of the Department of Justice against states, trying to survive, under the welfare bombardment of illegal aliens. Only the TEA PARTY and not the two old, tired established parties will enforce immigration laws. Only the Tea Party will build the real two parallel fences, prosecute city officials compliant with Sanctuary Cities and additionally restrain a federal DREAM bill. Only the TEA PARTY will press for the mandatory ‘Legal Workforce Act,’ E-Verify and secondary the ‘Birthright Citizenship Bill.’ Only the TEA PARTY will cut short any further contempt by this administration for the U.S. Constitution and the undermining of the Congressional voices.

The legal website of http://www.judicialwatch.org will open up your eyes to the corruption hidden within the confines of Washington and the state Capitol hierarchy, who are spending trillions of your dollars with impunity. JOIN YOUR LOCAL TEA PARTY AND CONTACT THE SENATE AND HOUSE REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND MANDATORY E-VERIFY (H.R. 2885) AND THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP BILL ( H.R.140) CALL THE WASHINGTON AT 202-224-3121

    KEEP YOUR VOTE SAFE! ILLEGAL ALIENS WILL VOTE IN ALL ELECTIONS.
