Immigration: President Obama has played it coy over amnesty for illegals. Will he or won’t he? Now, his intent is revealed in preparations to legalize millions in the coming year.
As Breitbart’s Big-Government website reports, “The Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.”
With little fanfare, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services earlier this month requested bids by contractors who could handle a “surge” in green-card printing over the next year. That “surge” is expected to be about 9 million cards — with a maximum over the length of the contract of 34 million cards.
To us, this looks like a blanket amnesty. The Obama administration is preparing a sweeping — and unconstitutional — plan to grant de facto citizenship to millions of people now here illegally by giving them green cards.
We say “de facto” because, while the plan would merely issue I.D.s to illegals for working purposes, that would be only a first step. In no time, those with I.D.s and their advocates would be angling for citizenship, calling all those who oppose them racists.
