Obama’s Lawless Amnesty Program Begins Today – Thousands of Illegals Line Up in Chicago (Video)

Navy Pier Amnesty Line–

Tens of thousands of illegal aliens lined up today to sign up for Barack Obama’s lawless amnesty program. An estimated 1.8 million illegals are eligible for the program.

Stand With Arizona reported:

Obama’s lawless bypass of Congress in granting blanket amnesty to millions of illegal aliens began this morning across America.

Tens of thousands of illegals lined up early, and flooded into DHS centers to apply for nearly automatic 2-year stays from deportation and work permits, with far looser provisions and requirements than were ever imagined in any version of the 3-times defeated ‘Dream Act’ in Congress.

Thanks to Obama’s decree on June 15th, blanket amnesty for illegal aliens under 30 begins today as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) begins accepting applications for “deferred action” and work authorization.

To soften the public relations blow, the White House estimated that about “only 800,000″ illegal aliens would be covered under this amnesty, when Obama issued his edict – a complete fiction that he knew the media would not challenge. However, the figure was disputed by the Pew Hispanic Center, which estimated about 1.4 million beneficiaries. Then last week, the pro-amnesty Migration Policy Institute estimated that 1.76 million illegal aliens will be eligible.

In reality, the numbers will be higher – FAR higher. Why? Because, as  House Judiciary chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told DHS Secretary Napolitano in an August 13th letter, there are no mechanisms in place to detect, deter, or to punish fraud.

    Mitt Romney is going to win and I lay the argument out very succinctly here…

    Get used to President Mitt Romney

    There is no way for Barack Obama to regain a 2nd term. The numbers are completely stacked against him. For daily numbers analysis and common sense logic why Romney and Ryan will win, visit my blog.

    The greatest problem here is not these wannabee American citizens (which everyone in the world still clamors for – why not – we are blessed to live in this great country founded on the IDEA that our rights come from “God and Nature” (hello Paul Ryan – what a breath of fresh air on ideology…..keep it coming) and not from government…..

    The greatest problem here is that Obama bypassed Congress to pass this new “fiat or command” from the throne he thinks he sits in.

    No American President gets to bypass Congress. It’s as simple as that.

    That’s why we came here in droves from Europe in the 19th and 20th Century and it’s why they come here in this century.

    That this “command from a king without Congress” is already being implemented is one of the greatest voter fraud schemes ever put into practice.

    Please – remember this. Romney will do right by these folks – and he probably should given the parameters of these applications – I mean, my granny still talks about the anti-Irish laws she and her family faced in the 1950’s in Chicago – we have a Chicago Tribune page of apartment rentals that she saved that she circled over and over “Irish Need Not Apply”…..

    Sigh.

    Why isn’t the Congress stepping in to block this illegal usurpation of power by the executive branch? Because no one wants to rock this boat before the election. The Dimmies put the repubs behind the eight ball on this one. Called their bluff and so far are winning the hand. If even one person in Congress had the country’s best interests in mind, this would have been stopped when it first was proposed. So far—-crickets. They better hope that giving a million votes or more to Obama is not the difference in whether faux Pres. O wins or not. That roll of the dice on letting this issue go by the repubs is a big gamble IMO.

    By the way, if they get amnesty do they get to vote? Didn’t think they got citizenship privileges out of this. Anyone know for sure?

  • Patty

    Republicans said it will push hundreds of thousands of new legal workers into an already tough job market, where they will compete with Americans.

    They also said the administration is not requiring in-person interviews for applicants and is accepting affidavits for some requirements, which they said is an invitation to fraud.

    “While potentially millions of illegal immigrants will be permitted to compete with American workers for jobs, there seems to be little if any mechanism in place for vetting fraudulent applications,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith and Sen. Chuck Grassley said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano.

    The Homeland Security Department, which will process the applications, wouldn’t guess how many applications it will receive.

    But the latest estimate from the Migration Policy Institute says that as many as 1.76 million illegal immigrants could be eligible. Homeland Security estimates about 11 million illegal immigrants reside in the U.S.

    Officials have said they won’t use any of the information gained from applications to try to deport those who are rejected, or to go after their families, who might still be illegally in the U.S. and fall outside of the program.

    Some advocates, though, are wary.

    this is HOW OBAMA WILL BRING DOWN THE UNEMPLOYMENT BEFORE ELECTIONS.

    Another point against this bunch to be considered…he’ll allow illegals to infiltrate all aspects of our society, but he wants to shut down your childs lemonade stand!!

  • Patty

    Rush said 7 months ago that Obama will pull another one of his slick jigging of the unemployment figures. what a criminal obama is.

  • Patty

    Yes, republicans are reprehensible for allowing this to happen. All that Obama has done. They should have been investigating him a long time ago. If this nation allows this to continue he will be president again.

    And for the liberal Media they too, they are the progressives and liars, and hide the facts from American people. There better be between the east coast and west coast some really outraged voters to turn this ship that is sinking around on the course to prosperity and riches. Because Obama is a menace and he needs to be accountable for his actions.

    Please explain to me how this is not treason, since one of the directives of the President is to not harm the nation and we are now more vulnerable to criminals, to job loss and to infusion of NON-ASSIMILATED citizens, who will not regard our Constitution as worth honoring.

    These people will NOT be able to be traced as easily.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Chris:

    By the way, if they get amnesty do they get to vote? Didn’t think they got citizenship privileges out of this. Anyone know for sure?

    Yes, they get to vote… if they vote Democrat.

    If they vote Republican or Independent, then, no they do not and their vote will be challenged.

    In other words, nothing has changed since ’08.

    A Chicago moment for you all – Chicago has been a police sanctuary city (one of the many urban cities who were thus so) for illegal immigrants since 1978……when we moved away from there to Wisconsin.

    An illegal (drunk) Mexican illegal rammed into our parked car and then four others in 1978 in our Chicago neighborhood one night.

    Neighbors caught the guy running away from his car a few blocks away.

    When we called the police the nexxt day to ask what happened to him, they told us “He is on a bus back to Mexico and there would be no recourse for us to press charges”

    And that was like 30 plus years ago.

    It’s been happening for decades, folks. It’s time to start drawing some clear lines.

    No matter who we elect – Oh No – did I say that? – I didn’t mean it. I mean we need a real organizer and executive willing to work with Congress – not a tyrant who will just pass a rule or “order” – and completely bypass our duly elected Congressional Representatives – like the Obama fiat we are seeing acted out today in Chicago and all over the country.

    This current President thinks he is some kind of king……he has no idea about what the real American idea is.

  • Freddy

    Here is the funny part. They do not have enough people to process these applications. This will mean that they will languish looking for these visa’s for years. Since there is no actual written law for this program, the next administration can unilaterally do whatever they want with these applications.

    In fact, while the Obama administration has decided that identity theft is not a federal crime if you are an illegal alien. This pronouncement cannot possible survive a court challenge. The next administration will be forced to enforce the existing laws.

    IF I were an illegal alien, I would be very afraid to have anything to do with an Obama administration that has shown they will lie to anyone.

    #36 – I do not wish any harm on those trying to stay in this country, who could blame them. As for the dictator making his own laws, I think someone needs to grow a set and finally speak up and challenge him and the rest of the left.
    I pray (yes, I said pray) that Mitt & Ryan get in so we, the country (minus the liberals), can start getting this country back to what it used to be, the best in the world.

    – And if I hear those on the left crying about the “Evil Rich” any more, I’ll mentally coke them – isn’t that the idea of living in this country, to work toward being rich so you can pass that wealth on to your kids/family?!?

    PS – I wonder if any of those being granted amnesty can speak English!

  • The entire Obama administration is criminal, corrupt, and lawless, and unConstitutional. Obama has been in violation of immigration laws since he’s been in the United States because he doesn’t even have a legal Social Security card, nor does he have a green card, a work visa, nor does he have a legal passport unless the one he actually has is one from the country of his origin. I don’t care if there is no law that says you have to be a American citizen to run for the U.S. Senate, or even state senate, he isn’t even a citizen of the United States and if it took at least that to run for Illinois state Senate then he’s in violation of Illinois state law.

    Obama needs to be arrested, his presidency nullified, and Obama needs to be deported back to Kenya, and I’d love to live long enough to see not only that but everyone who is guilty of knowingly allowing their fellow Republican and/or Democrat representatives to know that they knew Obama was not a citizen to be arrested and some kind of punishment be worked out for them. Obviously those who were on the election committees who okayed Obama becoming a candidate would have to go to prison because they all knew he wasn’t a citizen and allowed him to become a candidate.

  • We don’t even know how many illegals are in the country, so no surprise the number of eligibles could run into the millions. Requirements say misdemeanors and leaving and reentering the U.S. do not prevent eligibility. We will have to assume that identity fraud is going to be treated lightly, too, or how many working age illegals would qualify?

    Here is how my wife & three young children did it:
    1) Get married to a US citizen
    2) Fill-out form after form after form & pay $5000 in fees to DHS – each.
    3) Wait for a year and a half for processing (not even temporary visits to US permitted)
    4) Drive to Ciudad Juarez for final processing (1500 miles from TJ !?).
    5) Granted “Conditional Resident”status.
    6) Enter the US – woohoo!
    7) Drive to California home.
    8) File more forms / pay more fees for Work Permit, SSN & finally a CA Driver’s License.
    (if illegal could have got DL w/o SSN – or could have bought SSN at swap meet for $50)
    9) Return to Ciudad Juarez 6 months later to be granted “Permanent Resident” status.
    10) Learn to speak perfect English
    11) Now, 5 years later, hopefully granted citizenship.

    Why don’t you FIX THAT Obama?
