Obama Quietly Issues Amnesty to Another Group of Illegal Aliens
How Many Amnesties will Obama Issue?
On Monday, the Miami-Herald reported that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has just extended Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to about 60,000 Haitian nationals living in the United States.
Announcement of the extension is expected to be published in the Federal Register this week, and will take effect on Jan. 22, 2013.
The Obama administration originally issued the TPS for Haitian illegal aliens in January 2010, following that country's devastating earthquake. The status also allows them to work in this country legally.

While the measure was been seen by many as an act of American hospitality, it has also made the possibility of ever deporting the illegal aliens, many of whom are convicted criminals residing in federal detention centers, rather unlikely.
The federal government actually has a history making the "temporary" status permanent.
Honduran and Nicaraguan nationals received the protected status in 1999, after Hurricane Mitch hit their countries. Salvadoran nationals were also granted the same protection from deportation, after an earthquake hit El Salvador in 2001.
Despite the time which has passed since both disasters, their legal status in this country remains in place.
In fact, in January 2012, the Obama administration issued yet another extension of the TPS, originally granted to 217,000 illegal aliens from El Salvador.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, due to the earthquakes in 2001, "El Salvador remains unable, temporarily, to handle adequately the return of its nationals."
Somali and Sudanese nationals also enjoy the special status. Of course, it has recently come to light that many Somalis who were allowed to immigrate to this country have become radicalized Muslim terrorists.
One Haitian whose deportation was stayed by Obama was Kesler Dufrene, a twice-convicted felon and illegal alien who murdered three people, including a 15-year-old girl last year.
Though an immigration judge ordered that Dufrene be deported when he got out of prison for burglary in October 2010, but due to the TPS, immigration authorities in Miami had no choice but to release the illegal alien back onto the streets.
On January 2, 2011, Dufrene shot three people to death, according to North Miami police.
However, the Haitian national was never be brought to justice. Nearly three weeks later, he shot himself while surrounded by Manatee County sheriff’s deputies, who came looking for him following another break-in and shooting.
DNA evidence later linked Dufrene to the murders.This article was originally published in forum thread: Obama quietly issues amnesty to another group of illegal aliens started by Jean View original post
