Obama to allow 100,000 Haitians into America without a visa

Calling it ““an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.,” Senator Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, is criticizing an executive order issued by the president that would allow at least 100,000 Haitian nationals into the United States to be “reunited with their families.”

Washington Times:

“Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the branch of the Department of Homeland Security that handles immigration benefits cases, announced Friday the program to unite Haitians already living in the U.S. with family members abroad will ramp up in 2015.

At that time the State Department’s National Visa Center will begin notifying families who may be eligible to take part in the program. Those immigrants will allowed to apply for work permits while waiting for issuance of their permanent visas.

The agency said the program will expedite “safe, legal and orderly migration.”

A similar program that reunited Central American children with their parents had a fraud rate of about 70%.

“The rebuilding and development of a safe and economically strong Haiti is a priority for the United States. The Haitian Family Reunification Parole program promotes a fundamental underlying goal of our immigration system — family reunification,” said Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas. “It also supports broader U.S. goals for Haiti’s reconstruction and development by providing the opportunity for certain eligible Haitians to safely and legally immigrate sooner to the United States.”

Roughly 100,000 Haitians already approved to come to the U.S. are currently awaiting visas, The Associated Press reported.

Mr. Grassley, whose Senate committee has jurisdiction over immigration policy, predicted the number of Haitians who would come to the U.S. under the program would likely exceed that estimate, calling it “likely just the beginning of the president’s unilateral and executive actions on immigration.”

“Parole is meant for humanitarian assistance on a case-by-case basis,” he said. “The president’s continued push to circumvent Congressional authority and ignore the rule of law sets a bad precedent for the future.”

Question: How do we “rebuild” the Haitian economy by bringing 100,000 of their citizens here?

Grassley is right. This is just the tip of the iceberg.While our attention is focused elsewhere on Ebola and ISIS, the president will bring hundreds of thousands of immigrants through the back door. Without congressional authorization, without congressional hearings on the impact on jobs for citizens, and announced on a Friday afternoon to insure minimal news coverage, the president has once again demonstrated his intention to rule by decree.

    We may have to approach this immigration madness by standing on a platform that is arguable on logical basis and if agree it will hit us all.
    We must elect people who stand on a population control based on available resources.
    That is what families do all the time, or should do. PLANNING is not dirty word. Brutally stated what right do people have to keep bringing children into the world when they do not have the means to support them. Why not make it an educational imperative to teach people to ask “what kind of life can I offer this child?”. Ho small can you slice that pie.
    Now apply that to the government and immigration. To say more people pay more taxes so it will be good for the economy. That is the biggest hog wash around and pretty ignorant at that. We can can win this argument but we better start with intelligent premise. So, as it was intended originally, calculate how many people we can plan for that will allow us to achieve and maintain the life style for which this country was started. When we are told that technology solves all, such as purify water…Why not bluntly ask “why should I drink purified Urine instead of natural water to make room for more people? Where is the logic? Are more people an uncontrollable necessity?
    No where does God say we have to reproduce beyond God own provision.

    Impeach Obama? Put him in Gitmo? No, I suggest a good ol’ fashion lynching Followed by sticking his head up on a pike. How bout’ drawing and quartering him on the White House lawn? If there is anyone still out there who’s not convinced he is deliberately destroying our country; I can only say that the power of self-delusion is great.
