DHS job fair for illegals
America has a 9% unemployment rate, but the Department of Homeland Security,
instead of hiring US citizens to assist in rounding up undocumented
aliens and shipping them home, has chosen to authorize employing people
who shouldn't be here in the first place.
The Department of Homeland Security,
headed up Janet Napolitano and in cooperation with the White House, has
chosen to reward illegals with paychecks that could otherwise be going
to Americans who are unemployed. According to Napolitano, DHS apparently
sanctions and authorizes hiring foreigners who flout the law, citing
"prosecutorial discretion" as the excuse.
next? Why not make exceptions for well-behaved child molesters to
prove they're rehabilitated by allowing them to work in day care
centers? Or how about, as a good faith expression of redemptive trust
on the part of the federal government, giving car thieves part-time jobs at Cadillac dealerships?
a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Janet Napolitano cited
"agency leeway" as an excuse to allow illegals to work - another policy
that underscores the absurdity that has defined this administration's
stand on immigration. Regardless of how family-minded, polite, or
hard-working, illegal aliens remain lawbreaking interlopers who have
zero regard for our country or its rule of law.
how has the Obama administration chosen to address the pervasive
problem of illegal immigration? By bestowing on iniquitous individuals
the gift of free education,
promised amnesty, taxpayer-funded entitlement programs, and jobs that
the perpetually underemployed would be more than happy to fill.
At the hearing,
ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Senator Charles
Grassley (R-Iowa) probed Janet Napolitano with questions, hoping to get
at the root of the lunacy. Grassley asked the DHS secretary the
following question: "According to the information from your department,
some individuals who are given relief will obtain work authorizations.
So people with no right to be in the country will be allowed to work
here. Is that correct?"
responded to Grassley's question by citing a policy "allowing illegals
to work," which she claims has been in place since 1986. Although the
Secretary failed to name the legislation, it's possible she was
referring to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, a bill
otherwise known as Simpson-Mazzoli Act.
original intent of Simpson-Mazzoli was to "curtail the employment of
illegal aliens and make employers responsible for verifying applicants'
eligibility to work in the US. Seasonal agricultural workers (who were
in the country illegally) were offered amnesty, as were undocumented
immigrants who had entered before Jan. 1, 1982 and maintained residence
bill also increased border patrols and prompted "efficient adjudication
of petitions and applications." A pathway to citizenship was instituted
by adjusting an illegal alien's status to that of being "an alien
lawfully admitted for temporary residence. One condition was an absence
of a felony conviction and no more than two misdemeanors. After one
year, the immigrant could apply for another adjustment of status to
become 'lawfully admitted for permanent residence.'"
difference between 1986 and 2011 is that since then, the number of
illegals residing in the United States has grown from 2 million to an
unmanageable albeit conservative estimate of 12 million.
9-11 proved that there are those who have entered the nation illegally
who come here for reasons other than picking apples as a 'seasonal
agricultural worker.' Couple that with the abysmal unemployment picture
for American citizens who remain desperate for work, and the federal
government offering jobs to illegals, regardless of the excuse, borders
So once again the nation is confronted with an administration and Department of Homeland Security
that continue to be suspicious of ex-military personnel, pro-life
activists, evangelical Christians, and Tea Party members, but who feel
comfortable rewarding criminal interlopers who infiltrate the nation's
borders, some with malicious ill intent, with jobs that remain scarce
for the law-abiding.
it's just that Janet Napolitano is too busy hunting down right-wing
extremists to find time to focus on enemies who come to America
disguised as destitute migrant workers looking for a better life, or to
acknowledge that Al-Qaeda and Al Shabaab operatives routinely slink across the border into the United States.
In the meantime, the Department of Homeland Security,
together with Obama, rather than defend the native soil they swore to
protect, are complicit in providing pathways for terrorists to be
established in occupations whose ultimate payday includes doing the type
of work by which unemployed Americans may be financially harmed today
and fatally wounded tomorrow.
