House Democrats plan to resurrect the Dream Act and present legislation on March 12th. It will be called, “The Dream and Promise Act of 2019” (H.R. 6).
Congresswaman Lucille Boybal-Allard (CA 40) a Democrat coauthor of the original Dream Act, will reintroduce the legislation to provide a path to citizenship for “young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.” It will have some disturbing additions from prior versions. Currently, millions of so-called Dreamers would benefit from the legislation, including the approximately 800,000 who have had legal protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. We can say “approximately,” because if this legislation becomes law, which is a long shot, it would be like ringing the dinner bell to the entire world. With the fraud that would ensue, the numbers “qualifying” for this nightmare would surely be in the millions, including people in their 40s. Even the debate in the media about this legislation will encourage many to try to enter our country illegally.
You may recall that Roybal-Allard was pleased to announce that her guest for President Trump’s State of the Union address would be Kenia Yaritza Arredondo Ramos, a 30-year-old Mexican DACA recipient and aspiring registered nurse and student at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.
President Trump has tried to end DACA, but federal courts have blocked him from doing so, an interesting situation since DACA was established by Obama and not passed by Congress.
Established by one president but can’t be ended by another. Interesting. Remember, this all started in June of 2012 with “prosecutorial discretion,” meaning no enforcement or prosecution of a class of illegal aliens.
The Department of Homeland Security established DACA through the issuance of a memorandum on June 15, 2012. The program purported to use deferred action—an act of prosecutorial discretion meant to be applied only on an individualized case-by-case basis—to confer certain benefits to illegal aliens that Congress had not otherwise acted to provide by law. Specifically, DACA provided certain illegal aliens who entered the United States before the age of sixteen a period of deferred action and eligibility to request employment authorization.
“… applied only on an individual case-by-case basis … 800,000 case-by-case decisions? Right.
Roll Call reports that The rollout of Roybal-Allard’s legislation next month will also feature Pelosi and other party leaders along with New York Representatives Nydia M. Velázquez and Yvette D. Clarke, the other lead sponsors of the bill, according to Roybal-Allard’s office.”
California and New York representatives are taking the lead with the next bit of legislative destruction of our country and our culture.
There are additions to the new bill. It will include protections for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) recipients. The TPS and DED programs have protected “undocumented” refugees from deportation, but require periodic renewal, which alerts Americans to the issue and prompts the debate about why, for example, we are continuing to renew TPS status for those from El Salvador, which started in 2001 because of … earthquakes. El Salvador’s TPS status is scheduled to end, finally, in September of this year, so we can see why TPS will be added to the DACA Amnesty bill, which is what it really is.
H.R. 6 will be presented on Tuesday the 12th, Beware the Ides of March.
