Goodlatte Warns Deportation Changes Hurt Immigration Overhaul Prospects

The powerful chairman of a committee dealing with immigration legislation is not happy about the Obama administration’s changes to a program for so-called DREAMers.

Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte, R-Va., blasted the Department of Homeland Security’s Thursday announcement about the program helping certain undocumented immigrants to avoid deportation.

It comes only a week after DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson got an earful from Goodlatte and other Judiciary Republicans about the Obama administration’s alleged executive overreach and the effect it might have on the House’s willingness to move on immigration overhaul legislation this year.

In a statement, Goodlatte accused Obama administration officials of having “quietly made several changes” to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Barack Obama created through executive order in June 2012 to halt the removals of immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents — referred to as “DREAMers.”Goodlatte claimed that the officials “have loosened the educational requirements to allow those who are enrolled in an ‘alternative program’ (without defining what this means) to benefit from the program.” He also took issue with language that would not explicitly require the administration to verify “documentary evidence” that an applicant submits to prove that he or she meets the standards for a stay of deportation.

“President Obama’s extension of his unilaterally-created immigration program not only violates his constitutional duty to enforce the law, but the changes he made to it proactively invite fraud and abuse,” Goodlatte said. “The Obama administration’s blatant statement that they may not verify information submitted by applicants is pure folly and only encourages unscrupulous people to test the system. And by loosening the education standards, potentially millions more unlawful immigrants who do not meet even basic education requirements will be able to apply for the program.

“These actions undermine Congress’ hard work to reform our immigration laws and also raise serious concerns about the administration’s ability and willingness to maintain the integrity of our immigration laws,” Goodlatte continued, adding that his committee will continue to probe “the Obama administration’s lax immigration enforcement and … how these changes impact our immigration system.”

The DHS announcement of a process for renewing DACA applications is no surprise. With the first round of approvals set to expire in September, it was time for the administration to provide guidance for how individuals can continue to remain in the country under the program. From the standpoint of the administration and immigration activists, the DACA has been a great success, so there was no indication that the program would be discontinued or deportation deferrals would be allowed to expire.

“Despite the acrimony and partisanship that now exists in Washington, almost all of us agree that a child who crossed our border illegally with a parent, or in search of a parent or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult law-breakers,” Johnson said in a statement. “By the renewal of DACA, we act in accord with our values and the code of this great Nation.

“But,” Johnson added, “the larger task of comprehensive immigration reform still lies ahead.”

Johnson already is facing scrutiny as officials prepare a report for release this summer outlining how Obama may use executive orders to curb some deportations and generally create a more “humane” immigration policy. The idea puts pressure on the House to act by the August recess.

    Those who favor amnesties always want to get as many people in on it as possible, so it’s not surprising that corrupt politicians go with what amounts to an honor system. Their attitude is by any means necessary. So-called requirements are just for show and not meant to be enforced anyway–which they aren’t. S. 744 and CIR bills are always fraud magnets–it makes sense that DACA would be similar. The classic boob bait is a “requirement” to learn English. There is NEVER a requirement and never will be. It’s just lipstick on the pig and designed to fool people.

            2.) How did my ancestors who came thru Ellis Island come illegally…go ahead tell me how. Talk laws…not left wing nut idiotic talking points

            Lastly…over illegals yes I am privileged. I have lived and worked in the USA my entire life, paying taxes (oh the horror of that eh?) and raised a family of fine American citizens.
            Now let me ask you a question (actually two) ..
            Are you willing to donate 30% more of your income to help house and feed illegals or are you willing right now to build and addition to your home to house illegals, get them ATM cards to withdraw from your bank account and put hem on your ins. plan (unless you are subsidized)? If you say yes to both, sign off the Internet right now and get that ball rolling on the above I will be humbled and proven that I am wrong…are you?

    If nothing is done to verify identities, addresses, and other information, then every single document that someone submitted could be a forged document — or a real one that belonged to somebody else.

    And how much would that cost? My guess is not very much, really — maybe a few thousand dollars at most. There’d be every reason to cheat and no reason not to.

    YEAH RIGHT. WHAT GOODLATTE DOES NOT MENTION IS THE SAFE ACT BILL HE PASSED IN HIS COMMITTEE THAT WILL MAKE EVERY UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT OR VISA OVERSTAY A FELON AND CRIMINAL.

    HERE IS WHAT HE PASSED IN HIS COMMITTEE.

    WHAT A SPINNER.

    Educate Yourself. http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/immigration/report/2013/12/09/80652/making-sense-of-the-senate-and-houses-visions-of-immigration-reform/

    THE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE HAVE PASSED THE SAFE ACT BILL. MAKING EVERY UNDOCUMENTED ? VIASA OVERSTAY AN ARRGAVATED FELONY SO EVERY UNDOCUMENTED PERSON OR THOSE WHO OVERSTAY THEIR VISA

    WILL BE JAILED & DEPORTED. WHAT DID THEY DO DIFFRENTLY THAN WHAT IS ALREADY BEING DONE?? NOTHING, NADA, ZILSCH, THEY ONLY ADDED MORE ICE OFFICERS.

    In stark contrast to the Senate bill, the House Judiciary Committee passed the SAFE Act, a bill that makes criminals out of unauthorized immigrants, on a party-line vote in June 2013. Unauthorized presence in the United States is currently a civil offense, but the SAFE Act makes it a federal crime, thereby turning anyone who has overstayed a visa or entered without inspection—even years or decades ago—into a criminal. What’s more, the SAFE Act makes criminals of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who might interact with undocumented immigrants in their day-to-day activities. The SAFE Act subjects anyone who transports or “harbors” a person knowing that he or she is in the United States without legal status to severe criminal penalties, including fines and the possibility of spending years in jail. A soccer mom, for example, who carpools her daughter’s soccer teammates to afternoon practice could face up to five years in prison if she is caught driving a girl who the mom knows is undocumented.

    The SAFE Act also grants states and localities the right to enact civil or criminal immigration laws that mirror provisions in federal law and gives state and local enforcement agencies unprecedented authority to enforce federal, state, and local immigration laws. The SAFE Act gives local and state police the power to investigate, apprehend, arrest, and detain people for violations of immigration law, effectively acting as a nationalization of Arizona’s anti-immigrant bill S.B. 1070, which the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional in June 2012. These provisions undermine the trust of communities of color, encourage racial profiling, and make everyone less safe.

    At a time when we need smarter policies that allow us to scale back resources invested in immigration enforcement, the SAFE Act moves in the opposite direction, authorizing DHS to hire 2,500 Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention officers, 5,000 deportation officers, and 700 support staff for them. These additional staff would double down on our current failed strategy of mass deportation and would be aided by the bill’s expansion of offenses that qualify under immigration law as an “aggravated felony.” The offenses need not be aggravated or a felony to be so classified, but the penalties are severe: automatic detention and deportation with no possibility of legal re-entry.

    Increases in spending would also be authorized under the SAFE Act to construct or acquire additional detention space to house thousands more detainees, and DHS would be required to take noncitizens into federal custody within 48 hours of state or local law enforcement making a request. The bill will allow the detention of undocumented immigrants for two weeks after they have completed their criminal sentence to give DHS a chance to take them into custody. And the bill precludes expansion of alternatives to detention.

    Any serious consideration of the SAFE Act would open up old wounds in the immigrant and ally community, which fought off similar provisions in the Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005, better known as the “Sensenbrenner bill,” after its sponsor in the House. The Sensenbrenner bill was the cause for massive turnouts of people in rallies across the country in 2006, objecting to the notion that the undocumented and those who associate with them should be designated felons.

            By 2016 another 5 to 10.000.000 republican senior voters will pass away. And by 2020 another 10 to 20.000.000 million will pass away , so will the GOP= GRUMPY OLD PEOPLE .

            There are 50,000 Latinos coming of age to vote every month= over 3.000.000 THREE MILLION NEW VOTERS for 2016 AND ANOTHER 5.000.000 VOTERS IN 2020.THEY ALL ARE CERTAINLY GOING TO VOTE REPUBLICANS :) HA HA HA THANKS FOR THE LAUGH :):):)

            The REPUBLICANS ARE A DO NOTHING PARTY. HERE ARE THE FACTS ON IMMIGRATION REFORM.

            For all the tough talk about immigration reform, the House has done NOTHING on border security and the Senate has.

            Likewise, they’ve done NOTHING to solve the visa overstay issue, workplace verification or the H-1B visa problem. It is well and good to vaguely declare the Gang of Eight bill insufficient, but certainly it does more for border security and these other issues than House Republicans have managed to do (which is NOTHING).

            The argument that the House can do NOTHING runs headlong into anti-immigration forces hype about the out-of-control border and the supposed economic burdens of illegal immigration. If it’s such a horrible problem — immigrants pouring over the border and all — why is the REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED HOUSE JUST SITTING THERE?????

            Another Year of OPEN BORDERS

            Another Year of BORDER CROSSINGS,

            Another Year of WORK SITE VERIFICATIONS,

            Another Year of VISA OVER STAYS,

            Thanks Republicans the Undocumented are Happy that you’ll ar doing NOTHING :) Just PANDERING TO YOUR BASE.

            In poll after poll, roughly three-quarters of Americans say they support a path to citizenship along the lines laid out in the Senate bill, which calls for a minimum wait of 13 years for most illegal immigrants. In a Gallup poll last month, for example, 87 percent said they would vote in favor of a bill that “would allow illegal immigrants living in the U.S. the opportunity to become citizens after a long waiting period if they paid taxes and a penalty, pass a criminal background check, and learn English.”

            Twelve percent said they would oppose such a measure. That is the 12 percent to whom House Republicans are listening. And 12 percent is a long, long way from 51 percent.

            By rejecting immigration, the Republicans in the House are sending a message that they’re not interested in being part of the solution. “If you only have to worry about your right flank — you don’t have to worry about a general election, don’t have to worry about governing — that’s a pretty easy gig, isn’t it? What the hell is the point?”

            Paul Ryan The Budget Committee chairman, whose next job may be head of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, makes his case based on numbers.

            ‘‘Baby boomers are retiring to the tune of 10,000 people a day for the next 10 years,’’ Ryan said. ‘‘We’re going to have labor shortages in this country in the next decade. We need to have our immigration system prepared for that. It’s going to take time to do that and that’s why I think we need to do it now.’’

            If immigration reform crashes, there will be one and only one reason: a failure of leadership by House Republicans.

    I am waiting for a day when crybaby Boehner will come and say that obama did not even tuck in the polo shirt, so we can not trust him!!! Enough of this escapism. Bring your own bill or shut up and vote on senate bill. Dont give bs about 1300 page senate bill. After removing white space and technical verbage, it will not be more than a 6th grader book. I know you politicians are learning challenged but it will be hard to accept that you can not read that bill in one year.

    • enough already with LWN’s

      How about we do national vote in November on this issue….What say you?

    Republicans are the enemies of the hispanic community.

    Republicans have re-branded themselves as enemies of the hispanic community.

    Let young successful undocumented dreamers become legal so that they can help uplift their community from the low socioeconomic status they are in.

    • left wing

      let the CRIMINALS in so the democratic party can BUY their votes and commit voter fraud to keep the democrats in power. the democrats have re-branded themselves as the party of hate, lies and the beloved police state.

    THE ROOTS OF THE TWO PARTY CONSPIRACY/

    President Obama and his minions by opening their BIG mouths
    are complicating illegal immigration enforcement with problems for the military
    as well; those different issues that should remain away from the mainstream
    press, the public and the populations of foreign countries. Broadcasting to the
    world, that politicians are considering Amnesty for people who have already
    broken the law, by entering America
    without registration is outrageous. It shows utmost incompetence or a
    conspiracy to wreak havoc on millions of jobless Americans. I have always said
    that it is a CONSPIRACY, not to uphold the enforcement of our borders, so that
    illegal aliens can slip past our unjustifiable open borders. Taxpayers are
    already paying financially to settle foreigners, who Vice President Joe Biden
    stated, “that they are already Americans” What blatant rot? It’s just utmost
    insanity to keep crowing about Immigration Reform or the possibility of a Path
    to Citizenship?

    I think it’s hard for
    most prudent citizens to believe, that this bloated government had overstepped
    the law in allowing 36,000 criminals back into our society. Additionally the
    voices in Congress have hollered loud enough, to preview large numbers of
    children from South American countries pushed ahead by their parents, knowing
    full well that our present President will not send them back whence they came?
    It’s yet another way for parents to get a toe hold around our laws, consistent
    with chain migration. That the U.S.
    taxpayer will perform for them, in that they can anticipate EBT food stamps,
    education for their children, Obamacare or Medicaid and low income housing.
    Then there are 60.000 children being allowed through our border, with more to
    come that we must keep them safe. Not forgetting the 46 % of tourists, who seem
    innocent enough until they arrive at the emergency room of hospitals ready to
    give birth? Sorry but only people issued a social security number should have
    priority, not foreign nationals that Obama has welcomed through the back door.
    How simple it would be, to issue every legitimate individual with a digital
    national ID card, which cannot be counterfeited. The cost of 2 billion dollars
    is meager to what is spent on public assistance. We just gave that amount of
    money to a country, that doesn’t even like us; compliments again of the Obama
    government?

    To confound it all, the White House tells our enemies the
    date we are departing from Afghanistan.
    The US plan to bring home almost all American
    soldiers from Afghanistan by the end of 2016. A steady stream of lies has poured forth from his mouth,
    one after the other. Our Constitution has repeatedly been violated. Congress
    has been bypassed, ignored, run over, and browbeaten by the man and his
    henchman in the different government agencies. Obama has shoved this disastrous
    and unaffordable Obamacare on Americans and it has already cost our neighbors,
    friends and loved ones their jobs, even their lives. The disgrace that has been
    brought upon our great nation is at times too much to bear. Obama has demonstrated
    complete disregard for the law and We the People throughout his presidency. And
    now he has shown the same utter disregard and disrespect for our military. We
    cannot allow him to destroy these fine people who have served our country with
    such honor and respect.

    Be assertive and don’t vote for a
    Republican, don’t vote for a Democrat or worse, but vote for a specific issue,
    such as a real two layer fence at the U.S./Mexican border and troops to support
    the Border Patrol officers. There have two many inconsistencies from both
    parties. Join the mega-voices in the
    National Tea Party to Abolish the IRS that has become an ugly instrument of
    this administration; as we need a fair or Consumer tax that nobody can escape
    paying, specifically Unions, GOP special interests and corporate cronyism. Electing
    fresh Politicians who will vote for ending the massive spending spree and
    reduce the size of the government? These are just a few issues will save
    hundreds of billions of dollars.

    Trading the destinies is the spot the new money is at, and the best site I’ve uncovered so far is a spot called Gold Trading Academy. Google them and you should have the ability to uncover them. The destinies is the spot all the development is as of now and I never knew the sum money there is to make in trading the prospects starting not very far in the past.

    Does the Chinese Exclusion Act ring a bell? Any time non-whites try to come to America the laws toughen up against them. They are NOT welcome here.

    Just look at the picture at the top of the article, all whites.

      Yeah, only look at the bad side of undocumented immigrants, can’t mention that they are hard workers or anything like that.

      Couldn’t expect anything more from someone as prejudiced as you, good job, have a medal.
