|Immigration or conquest by mass migration?|
I first found out about the HALT Act via Randy's Right and after reading his post !!!WATCH THIS!!!….HALT Act To Restrict Obama’s Executive Authority!!! I decided to do little looking of my own.. It was easier to find out Huffington Post is already up in arms against it, that it was to find the actual text of the proposal. Randy has this posted ..

Chairman Smith: The American people have called upon Congress to defeat several amnesty bills in recent years. Following Congress’ rejection of these attempts, the current administration now wants to grant a “backdoor amnesty” to illegal immigrants.What had once been rumor fueled by leaked administration memos is now official Department of Homeland Security (DHS) policy as of last month. The Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued two directives on the scope of DHS officers’ prosecutorial discretion that could allow millions of illegal and criminal immigrants to avoid our immigration laws.
I was interested in what the actual document had to say, it was a surprisingly short five pages, and written in non legalize English the guts of the law were very straight forward.. The discretion of the administration to circumvent the law by excluding entire categories of illegals from deportation is suspended until January 21, 2013 at which time the law would expire.. From the text of the proposed law the Administration is allowed several special case exceptions..
except to the extent that the discretionary authority conferred under such section is exercised for the purpose ofI don't think any reasonable objection can be made to holding criminals or national security risks for trial..and if convicted punishment. . We damn sure don't want to deport witnesses to crimes or people who might be considered intelligence asserts. As for the last one, regardless of how the vast majority of Americans feel about illegals, as a nation we wouldn't stand for deporting individuals when we know for that person, it's death sentence.
15 paroling an alien into the United States—16 (1) to be tried for a crime, or to be a witness17 at trial, upon the request of a Federal, State, or18 local law enforcement agency;19 (2) for any other significant law enforcement or20 national security purpose; or21 (3) for a humanitarian purpose where the life22 of the alien is imminently threatened.You can read the entire PDF Here
Overall it's a good law.. The idea that as a nation we have to accept people and grant them virtually all the rights of an American Citizen, because the infiltrated our borders is idiocy. If you come home a find a burglar in your house do you invite him to move in, or call the police to take his butt away.
So until then we can look forward to more of this..
