Jessica Vaughn from the Center for Immigration Studies is reporting that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has begun releasing all illegal aliens without a felony conviction who entered the United States before January 1, 2014. This includes illegal aliens with misdemeanor convictions and those arrested for felonies, but not prosecuted because ICE took custody of the illegal alien before prosecution. The illegal aliens are also being given an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). This despite the claim that only those illegal aliens with 5 or more years in the United States will get the EAD. See Gateway Pundit article. Nothing on the CIS website.
It appears that Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have either been out-maneuvered or deliberately sabatoged their attempt to stop the amnesty with a March plan to address the Department of Homeland Security budget and any restrictions on the amnesty in the March budget. Did they plan to give Obama three months to implement the amnesty? Most likely.
