After the Supremes blocked his plan regarding illegals recently, it’s full-bore ahead with this President. By simply giving so-called “Refugee Status” to anyone who crosses our border, they become eligible for getting a Green card and benefits. No questions asked. Clever aren’t they? No doubt plenty of gang bangers, drug dealers will flood our shores. Even though Americans have been clear about the concerns of importing who knows who, this administration gives us the you know what. Here we go:
President Barack Obama announced an expansion of a refugee program for Central Americans fleeing violence in their home countries, the day after the Democratic National Convention featured an undocumented immigrant among its opening-night speakers.
Some adults will be eligible to accompany minors under age 21 seeking refugee status from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras as the administration tries to discourage people from using smugglers to enter the U.S. illegally.
“The goal is for individuals who have legitimate humanitarian claims to not take the dangerous journey and to accept our outstretched arm of relief,” Alejandro Mayorkas, deputy secretary of homeland security, told reporters Tuesday on a conference call. He said he doesn’t know how many people may come into the U.S. under this expansion
Obama is expanding the program even though a federal court blocked his plan to shield millions of immigrants from deportation.
Administration officials say that expanding the refugee program for Central Americans will make it easier for some of those people to enter the U.S. legally. The expansion announced Tuesday would allow some older siblings, parents and other related caregivers to be eligible for refugee status when applying to enter the U.S. with minors.
