White House deportation waivers by executive fiat

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 22, 2011 09:29 AM 

Surprise, surprise.

No, it’s about as unsurprising as the setting sun or the rising sun.

The Obama Department of Homeland Security late last week announced it would enforce the DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout by administrative order — call them White House deportation waivers — over the heads of a bipartisan majority of Congress that has repeatedly and resoundingly rejected such proposals.

They administration didn’t put it in such stark terms, of course. But that is the effect of the decree.

And it is no surprise at all to you and me.

The open-borders radicals at the White House and within DHS have been telegraphing this for months.

In June, they floated a proposal to order deferred/administrative paroles for masses of illegal aliens. ICE issued memos listed extensive criteria for “prosecutorial discretion” on deportation enforcement — chief among them, the vast subset of illegal aliens who would qualify for the failed DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout.
