In a new ploy to push backdoor amnesty, the Obama administration is quietly working to curb the deportation of illegal immigrants by granting "unlawful presence waivers," for which to qualify, an illegal immigrant must be a relative of an American citizen.
Under current procedures, such illegal aliens must leave the country and request waivers of inadmissibility while undergoing the overseas immigration visa process, "often causing U.S. citizens to be separated for extended periods from their immediate relatives who are otherwise eligible for an immigrant visa and admission for lawful permanent residence," according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
In short, they must legally enter the United States, just as thousands of other immigrants do every year.
The DHS made the announcement Monday in a Federal Register journal entry, stating that illegal aliens who can show proof that they are related to a U.S. citizen will be awarded an "unlawful presence waiver." The administration asserts that the rule will "create efficiencies for both the U.S. government and most applicants." The reason for this is not explained in the announcement, which has given the American public 60 days to comment. "That’s only a formality," notes the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, "since the DHS has indicated that the change is pretty much a done deal."
