How The Government Encourages Illegal Immigration

And wants to solve the problem by administratively expediting more immigration. In the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, Congress mandated that illegal aliens who apply for immigration benefits be barred from entering the U.S. as legal immigrants for 3, 5, or 10 years, as a penalty for their illegal presence. However, under the Bill Clintong, Jorge Bush, and Obama Regimes, the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service and its successor, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, have been approving 75% of all applications for waiver of the bars to re-entry, effectively neutering the Act.

However that is not enough for the radical left. The minor hindrance that applying for a waiver of the bar and having the small risk of being held to the bar is too much. The 25% chance of a denial only discourages more illegals from taking advantage of the law. So the immigration bar and the radical left wants USCIS to centralize the adjudication of waivers in the name of efficiency, consistency and reduced processing times.

But what those words really mean is that denial rates are too high and it takes too long to approve an application. It is the same when they discuss the problems with asylum; differing approval rates, long waits and the hindering of claims by administrative hurdles. But what they don't mean is that approval rates should be normed to averaging out the result, much less norming out to a high level of denials, but consistently and quickly approving applications for waiver. Not surprising given that the MPI report was written by Doris Meissner, former Commissioner of the INS under Bill Clintong. Sabotaging the Act was her full time duty while Commissioner, and was notorious in the Service for various acts while Commissioner, including failing to fully implement expedited removal, remove aliens who became a public charge, and ended interior enforcement of immigration laws, effectively creating the sanctuary city movement by actively refusing to arrest illegals in any jurisdiction that declared any opposition to immigration enforcement.

But, the left is never satisfied. Even minor delays to immigration benefits for illegal aliens enrage her and the left. Requiring any alien to follow the law is a burden that she does not want placed on those aliens. And the program is to administratively overturn Acts of Congress, effectively creating an amnesty administratively. Bars to entry, quotas, etc., while created by Congress, are just to be ignored; all in the name of increasing the amount of immigration. It is lawlessness and an assault on the Constitution itself. If the Regime doesn't like the immigration policy set by Congress, they will just ignore it, waive it, end run it. Nothing will stop them from their goal, amnesty for all illegals, by hook or by crook.
