Absolutely nothing. ICE decided that it would not enforce the laws of the United States and decided to allow three illegal aliens to remain in the U.S.
"'We understand they have a pending application' for legal residency, said Virginia Kice, regional spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 'This delay will hopefully give the Washingtons an opportunity to address those legal issues.
"'We'll see where this stands at the end of 60 days and then reassess,' Kice said. 'Let's allow the legal process to play out.'"
However there is no legal process to play out. The Washingtons submitted their application for adjustment of status after her status had expired. They no longer have any legal process to go through. Anything other than a denial from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services would be illegal. Aliens admitted on the Visa Waiver Program cannot adjust their status after their period of admission expires. That is the law. Any approval by USCIS would be illegal. In any event their application for adjustment of status is invalid and has been denied already. So Virginia Rice is lying. There is no application. Case closed. Deport them now.
Nor does ICE have the authority to not take action. They are required by law to take action and remove Tracey Washington and her children forthwith.
Someone should call the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General and let them know that ICE is breaking the law. Contact their Oakland Office at (510) 637-4311 / Fax: (510) 637-4327.
Or ICE Office of Professional Responsibility at (510) 465-5052. 1111 Jackson St, Suite 555
Oakland, CA 94607 Fax (510) 465-3174.
It appears that USCIS initially refused to review the application, but then said they would. Which is also illegal. Give USCIS Office of Special Investigations a call at (202) 514-3636.
