Trump DHS Offers Immigrants Hurricane Harvey Amnesty<>

SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

Keeping with an Obama-era tradition of offering illegal immigrants reprieve, the Trump administration is providing those in the Houston area with hurricane amnesty in the aftermath of Harvey. Judicial Watch reported extensively on the special Obama amnesties, which were granted for inclement weather, a virus, natural disasters and tainted water in a U.S. city. One of Obama’s final special amnesty programs<> was issued last year for victims of Hurricane Matthew, the powerful storm that slammed the southeastern United States, killing dozens and causing severe flooding.

Prior to that, Obama took advantage of Hurricane Sandy<> to waive immigration laws, including for violators of student visas like most of the 9/11 hijackers that carried out the worst terrorist attack on American soil. The official announcement, issued by USCIS, stated that the government "understands that a natural disaster can affect an individual’s ability to maintain a lawful immigration status.” Among the benefits of that hurricane amnesty was "expedited adjudication of off-campus employment authorization applications for F-1 students experiencing economic hardship.” Hurricanes in other countries have also benefitted illegal aliens in the U.S. who happen to be nationals of the affected regions, even though they don’t live there.

Other natural disasters abroad also resulted in special reprieves for illegal aliens in the United States during the Obama years. A special earthquake amnesty<> was implemented for Ecuadorean nationals living in the U.S. illegally and the word spread like wildfire in Spanish media reports published throughout Latin America. Officially this is known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian measure designed to temporarily shield illegal immigrants from deportation during emergencies. In a Spanish announcement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated that it was helping Ecuadoreans in the U.S. by granting them work permits and waving visa fees of candidates show that their financial situation was hurt by the earthquake a continent away

Obama also gave illegals a reprieve for the Ebola outbreak (? - isn't it logical to get foreigners OUT of the country in such instances?) and for Midwestern flooding. Now Trump is doing the same. Again, from the article:

"Apparently, the Trump administration has no intention of ending the madness. A few weeks ago U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the DHS agency charged with overseeing lawful immigration to the United States, announced its Hurricane Harvey amnesty<> to help "people affected by unforeseen circumstances, including disasters such as Hurricane Harvey.” The language is taken right out of agency press releases issued for similar causes under Obama. Under the Hurricane Harvey plan, the agency will change a nonimmigrant status or extend a nonimmigrant stay for individuals currently in the U.S. "Failure to apply for the extension or change before expiration of your authorized period of admission may be excused if the delay was due to extraordinary circumstances beyond your control,” according to a USCIS announcement. Other perks include a "re-parole” of individuals previously granted parole, expedited processing of parole requests, expedited adjudication of employment authorization and a variety of other benefits not usually extended to those who have violated American laws. A note at the bottom of the USCIS announcement reads; "when making a request, please explain how the impact of Hurricane Harvey created a need for the requested relief.” It will be interesting to see how the agency confirms the storm’s impact before granting the reprieve."

What do the American People have to do to get the attention of our government and force their hand? We tossed out both parties in the last election and STILL we are being treated to this nonsense. The elites want what they want and will use everything at their disposal to get it. Our votes do not seem to matter.

Look; I get it; during a disaster there are more important things than kicking invading aliens out of the country. But isn't a disaster the opportune time to toss them, when we are struggling to care for refugees anyway? Shouldn't Mexico or Central America resume the burden of caring for these people, a burden which is theirs to begin with and which they have shirked? I know Trump doesn't want to look hard-hearted, but he needs to look strong and determined. Illegal immigration was the root of Trump's victory and the reason he won over so many former Democrats. He MUST show he's doing what he was elected to do. Weakness on this issue will get him nowhere with the media but will sour his voting base.

One thing is perfectly clear; we no longer have a government of the People, by the People and for the People, but rather a government run by a ruling junta, an elite class that drops just enough crumbs for the citizenry to make it appear we are a Democratic Republic. We aren't, not any longer. We are an oligarchy, little different from what Putin is running in Russia these days. And the billionaires run it all. George Soros anyone?
