First, Secretary Kelly, whom this writer has exposed as an amnesty supporter, and who isn't a Jumpin' Joe Swing, has endorsed what President Trump called unconstitutional and illegal, the DACA Amnesty.
The Homeland Security Department is not seeking to deport undocumented young people enrolled in an Obama administration program who have not violated the terms of their protected status, Secretary John F. Kelly told Senate Democrats on Wednesday.
[Kelly: Homeland Isn't Targeting Law-Abiding ‘Dreamers,' by Dean DeChiaro, Roll Call, March 29, 2017]
Kelly goes as far as stating that the program is essentially legal and permanent.
“The DACA status is a commitment not only by the government towards the so-called Dreamer, but by that person to obey the law, and some of them don’t.
Furthermore, by endorsing this illegal and unconstitutional policy, Kelly gave all DACA recipients the ability to challenge any denial or withdrawal of their status the right to challenge that in a Federal court under due process claims. Kelly gave to ambitious kritarchs the opening they need to seize immigration policy from Congress and the President. And he just blew up the Constitution. No longer does Congress have any authority over immigration, all that authority is now in the executive branch.
Furthermore, Kelly surrendered on the border as well. Previously, Kelly endorsed separating illegal aliens entering on the southern border from their illegal alien children in order to discourage their illegal behavior. But Kelly surrendered like a typical #cuckservative when challenged by the Democrats, then lied about it.
Washington (CNN)-Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly confirmed that the department is considering separating children from their parents at the border.
"We have tremendous experience of dealing with unaccompanied minors," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room." "We turn them over to (Health and Human Services) and they do a very, very good job of putting them in foster care or linking them up with parents or family members in the United States."
He continued: "Yes I'm considering (that), in order to deter more movement along this terribly dangerous network. I am considering exactly that. They will be well cared for as we deal with their parents. ... It's more important to me, Wolf, to try to keep people off of this awful network."

That was then, this is now:
Washington (CNN)-US Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Wednesday assured Senate Democrats he doesn't intend to separate mothers and children at the border -- apparently walking back an earlier statement he made that such a policy could deter people from entering the country illegally.
In response to a question from California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Kelly said that DHS wouldn't be separating mothers and children at the border unless there was an extenuating reason, such as illness, according to several Democrats who attended the meeting.
Kelly later told CNN that characterization was fair, "unless there is some other consideration." He denied that he had been considering a policy to separate families.
"I don't think I have said that," Kelly said. "Wolf Blitzer first asked me about this and I said everything's on the table, we might under certain circumstances do that, but I don't think I've ever said as a deterrent or something like that."

Here Kelly just encouraged another wave of Central American illegal aliens to run for the border. Family detention space is limited and already full. Any more family groups of illegal aliens will be released, despite the Trump Administration claim to have ended "catch and releases."
As if to underscore the ongoing Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, Acting Director Homan just confirmed that only criminal aliens will be arrested, every other illegal alien will be free to go about his or her daily business without fear of arrest.
Homan, whose agency has drawn fire for what some civil liberties advocates have criticized as heavy-handed tactics in rounding up and deporting illegal immigrants, insisted ICE was acting in a targeted fashion against those with criminal records.
He said ICE was also focused on individuals who have violated final deportation orders or have returned after being removed from the country.
"We don't conduct neighborhood sweeps," he said over cat-calls. "I don't want children to be afraid to go to school. I don't want people to be afraid to go to the doctor."

And to top off the abject surrender of the Trump Administration, EOIR kritarchs, who want their own immigration policy, have gone rouge and are releasing clearly deportable illegal aliens. This amnesty could be stopped by the Attorney General, as immigration judges are Department of Justice employees who serve at the pleasure of the President and are subject to direction and discipline from the Attorney General.
A man protected from deportation under former President Barack Obama’s administration but detained last month by immigration officials is free, for now.
Daniel Ramirez Medina, 24, was freed Wednesday from the federal immigration detention center in Tacoma after he posted a $15,000 bond.
Judge John Odell on Tuesday approved freeing Ramirez until his next immigration court hearing.

Note, despite living in the United States since the age of 7, he still cannot speak English. Hardly the type of person who can contribute to the United States.
Ramirez briefly spoke to reporters gathered from about a dozen media outlets, saying in Spanish he was grateful to everyone who had supported him.
And that is not the only case, in Vermont Attorney General Sessions allowed two illegal aliens to be released by an immigration judge.
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Two advocates for dairy farm workers were released on bond Tuesday following their arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement about two weeks ago.
Zully Palacios and Enrique Balcazar, who are in the United States illegally, said they were still fighting for the release of a third activist, who remained behind bars.
Palacios and Balcazar, leaders of immigrant rights group Migrant Justice, were arrested by plainclothes ICE officers over immigration violations. They don’t have criminal records and weren’t charged with criminal offenses. They said they believe ICE targeted them because they are activists.

Just as it appears that Chuck Schumer runs the Senate, it appears that Democrats run the immigration enforcement policies of ICE:
U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders, an independent, and Patrick Leahy, a Democrat, and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch, also a Democrat, said in a statement they have expressed serious concerns to ICE officials over the arrests.
Frankly, it appears that immigration patriots were played for suckers in this election. Almost every Obama policy on immigration is still in effect. The only change is that sometimes illegal alien criminals are being arrested and deported, but sometimes they aren't, or mostly they aren't. So in reality, there is no change. We can now call it the Trump Regime Administrative Amnesty.
