The Department of Homeland Security’s own Inspector General has dealt a serious blow against the Obama administration’s defense in the lawsuit filed by 26 states against the immigration amnesty scheme announced by Obama in November, 2014. The amnesty plan is currently on hold due to a preliminary injunction issued by federal District Court judge Andrew Hanen, an order being appealed by the administration.
The crux of the defense asserted by Justice Department lawyers is that the president’s actions are a permissible exercise of prosecutorial discretion. However, the Inspector General’s report published on May 4, reveals that the Obama DHS does not even attempt to gather or analyse prosecutorial discretion data to assess its policies or develop future policies to improve its ability to remove even dangerous aliens. The administration has been making the laughable claim that it needs to give amnesty – including Social Security cards and work permits – to five million illegals so that it can concentrate on removing dangerous alien criminals and terrorists.
