Another Reason to Vote for Trump: Senator Jeff Sessions Exposes Another Unlawful Obama Immigration Program

Giving Americans who believe in sovereignty and American exceptionalism another reason to vote for Donald Trump, our friend Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama has just exposed how the Obama Administration plans to expand an already unlawful program by setting up an extra-legal chain migration system for certain immigrants in the U.S. – including illegal aliens.  

As Senator Sessions noted earlier this week, the Immigration and Nationality Act sets forth very specific requirements and procedures through which family members may immigrate to this country, and many Jeff Sessionsthousands abide by those laws and wait in line every year to do so.  

“Now, with the stroke of a pen, the Obama Administration intends to circumvent statutory law at the behest of the open-borders lobbyists and extremists within the Democratic Party. This will only encourage more lawlessness, exacerbate the current situation at our border, and erode public confidence in the integrity of our immigration system. So, too, will irresponsible calls for universal amnesty undermine the system's proper operation,” said Senator Sessions. 

“What is needed now, more than ever, is strong, decisive leadership and a commitment to the execution of the laws on the books to convey the clear message to the world that if you come to the U.S. illegally, you will be removed,” the Senator said. 

Here’s how the new Obama chain migration program will work: 

The Obama Administration plans to expand its unlawful “Central American Minors Refugee/Parole Program,” which was created after the so-called “border surge” in the summer of 2014. The program allows certain alien parents in the U.S., including those with no lawful immigration status, but who are considered to have “lawful presence” based on some form of executive amnesty, i.e., TPS and DACA, to apply to have their children in El Salvador, Guatemala, or Honduras brought to the U.S., circumventing legal immigration requirements. 

The program, which the Obama Administration advertised as a way to stop the border surge, has been an abysmal failure at achieving its stated goal. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 43,280 illegal alien juveniles have been apprehended at the southwest border through June – a 62 percent increase over the same period last year, and a number surpassed only by the record number apprehended in FY 2014. Since the beginning of FY 2014, roughly 152,000 illegal alien juveniles have been apprehended, yet only a small fraction have been removed from the U.S. 

Under the administration’s new plan, not only would minor children be permitted to come to the U.S., but also the following individuals:

Other sons and daughters of the parent in the U.S. who are over 21 years old; 

The in-country biological parent of the qualified child – no marriage to the parent in the U.S. is required; and, 

“Caregivers” of qualified children who are also related to the U.S.-based lawfully present parents. 

“The program in its original form already flies in the face of historical policy and understanding and undermines the very logic and coherence of the entire immigration system. Expanding it to create a new avenue of chain migration for illegal aliens – one not even available to citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents – cannot withstand scrutiny,” said Senator Sessions in a prepared statement. 

Under our immigration system, U.S. citizens cannot petition for their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, or nephews to come to the U.S. based solely on the existence of a familial relationship. Yet, under this plan, so long as they accompany a qualifying child from El Salvador, Guatemala, or Honduras, the Obama Administration will allow illegal aliens to bring their extended family members into the U.S. 

The Capitol Switchboard number is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers to call their Senators and Representative TODAY to demand that Congress, through defunding or a standalone prohibition, put an end to this unlawful expansion of Obama’s illegal executive amnesty for illegal aliens from Central America.
