According to Reuters, the Trump transition team is demanding copies of every single executive order and directive outgoing President Obama ever ordered on immigration. Wow.
And any documents related beef up border security, including those related to expanding immigrant detention and an aerial surveillance program that Obama scaled back.
And they want one more thing…
Any and all illegal aliens’ records who signed up for amnesty freely so Trump can ensure federal workers were not altering them to help the illegals stay in the U.S. Obama has done everything to block Trump, so it is entirely plausible they would so this.
The illegals gave the government their addresses, identities, and admission that they’re in the country illegally, in order to get covered by Obama’s illegal executive actions, mainly Obama’s unconstitutional shielding of illegal aliens from deportation in 2012. Where he carved out exemptions for illegal aliens who arrived in the U.S. as minors, granting a quasi- legal status and work permits to some 1.4 million illegals who signed up.
“Four years ago I pointed out the fundamental problem with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: Anyone who signed up for DACA would be adding their names to a list of self-identified illegal aliens. Should a future administration decide that it would start enforcing the law, the DACA program would provide list of prime candidates for deportation,” writes John Miano at the non-partisan Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).
“At the time, this was so obvious that I was surprised anyone would be stupid enough to sign up for DACA and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans). Yet apparently hundreds of thousands of people did so anyway.”
And now they are gonna go back where they belong.
