Charles Krauthammer: Immigration bombshell: Naked lawlessness

Jun 22, 2012 Full story: The Wave

"With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations [of immigrants brought here illegally as children] through executive order, that's just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed."

This is going to back up the whole system and the fraud is going to be out of sight. Illegal aliens realize that they will be photographed and finger printed?

The 1986 amnesty fraud.

“The fraud in that program was out of sight,” said King.“The biggest fraud in California was establishing the 5-year residency. Fraudulent documents, rent receipts, food receipts, anything needed was for sale on Los Angeles streets…there were document vendors all over the place and fraud was rampant.”

“Some of the fraud was so obvious that 400,000 applicants were rejected during the interview,” said Oltman.“Some applicants would claim to be farm workers and would say they had picked strawberries from trees and were immediately rejected. Fraud in the agricultural program exceeded 30 percent because of a lack of investigative resources. Final decisions for approval or denial were made at the Regional Processing Offices.

“The one resource King was short of was an investigative team. He told Western Region Director Ezell that they needed a “sanitized group of investigators” to work the amnesty program solely to clear up the fraud. Current investigative staff was offered to help, but never produced the kind of investigations required to deal with the fraud. King had one investigator in his regional office for the 36 offices in 5 states and remarks wistfully that they currently have more people in Headquarters than he had in a sector.”

“The illegals actually thought the 5-year requirement was real and at first, didn’t come,” King remembers. That thinking didn’t last long."

It will take 20 years to clean up the mess from the past 4. Better hope the lame duck doesnt damage us through January with all these executive privvies he and his commrades love. If so, pray there are men and women brave enough to stop him. You know he's already gearing up for it.

“Work hard at work worth doing.”

BO opened up a whole new can of worms that will spiral out of control, as he sits on the sidelinnes fiddling away, with that arrogant smile on his face. Votes, all he cares about is votes.

White voters are the most important swing voters in the north. Romney will sweep them.
