Backdoor Amnesty Moves to California?
In the latest phase of the Obama Administration's backdoor amnesty scheme, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) attorneys last week began reviewing more than 18,000 pending deportation cases in San Francisco, California. (San Jose Mercury News, June 5, 2012)
Under the review, the Administration will administratively close — or otherwise ignore — any pending or incoming immigration case it does not deem a priority for immigration enforcement. (See Letter from DHS Secretary Napolitano to Harry Reid, Aug. 18, 2012)
Thus far, ICE has reviewed over 288,000 cases pending removal. Of those reviewed, ICE plans to administratively close 20,648.
