More Executive Actions on Immigration Coming

As if DACA and DAPA had not been controversial enough, President Obama is now planning even more executive actions in order to allow those in the country illegally to stay. The DHS proposal is not a new program as DACA and DAPA were, but it would expand waiver authority under DACA, to grant green cards to those in the country illegally.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a proposed rule on Tuesday that would make changes to a waiver program created by President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration in 2013. The action created a waiver that primarily allowed illegal immigrants with a U.S. citizen spouse or parent to stay in the country instead of having to leave the United States and be barred from returning for three or 10 years, if they proved their absence would create an “extreme hardship” for their spouse.

a GOP Senate aide also told WFB:

“Green cards are the golden ticket. Once you get a green cards you get welfare, you get tax credits, you get entitlements, the U.S. hands out one million green cards every year, and these documents are bankrupting the country.”
