Immigration reform may be stalled in Congress, but a new Obama administration policy is extending legal status and military benefits to thousands of illegal immigrants who are the spouses, parents and children of American military members.

But critics say the policy is tantamount to backdoor amnesty.

"A whole class of aliens with no right to be in the United States are suddenly going to be allowed to live and work here on the basis of their relationship with military and veterans," said Dan Cadman, with the Center for Immigration Studies.

The exemption, called parole in place, came in the form of a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services "policy memorandum." It was not submitted to or approved by Congress, and the regulations were not published in the Federal Register, which allows for public comment prior to a rule taking effect.

"I don't want to overstate it, but it sounds very similar to imperial decree if you ask me," Cadman said. "The public had no chance to comment on this new policy. I believe the way this was done was illegal."

Obama administration officials say the new rules do not require congressional action because they're based on existing statutes.

Democrats are famous for giving away things they don't have or can't afford. The Republicans are afraid to do anything because they are petrified of looking even slightly anti military. The Dems. are playing the neocon leadership like fiddles.
