Now they’re calling the shots.
CNS News reported:
To mark May Day last week, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) invited people who are in the country illegally to Capitol Hill where they released a list of executive orders they believe President Barack Obama should put in place, including stopping all deportations and bringing back deportees who have family here.
At the event, held in the Canon Office Building, seven people who are part of a “Blue Ribbon Commission” – six illegal aliens and an immigration attorney – that released a list of 14 things Obama could do (according to legal scholars they consulted with) to provide amnesty to millions without congressional approval.
“We insist that the timing [of the executive orders] be immediate and the scope be as broad and bold as possible,” a summary of the commission’s findings states.
The 14 recommended executive orders include:
• End all deportations and “Expand use of humanitarian parole to endure that people previously deported can return to the U.S.”
• Expand Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – Obama’s executive order that puts on hold the deportation of individuals who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents as children – to “as many people as possible”;
• End the successful “Secure Communities” program that is now in all 50 states and provides a partnership between local and federal law enforcement personnel to enforce immigration laws;
• “Drastically curtail the use of detention” for illegal aliens.
