    Amnesty Activists Ask Obama To Amnesty (Almost) All The Illegal Immigrants

    Conn Carroll | Nov 12, 2014

    Amnesty activists, confident that President Obama will soon grant amnesty by executive fiat to about 4 million illegal immigrants, are now pushing him to up that number to at least 7 million illegal immigrants, and possibly more.

    The Congressional Progressive Caucus sent a memo to Obama Wednesday, using data from the Migration Policy Institute, estimating that Obama's current preferred executive amnesty plan (giving work permits, Social Security numbers, and drivers licenses to the parents of earlier amnesty recipients) would only provide amnesty benefits to 4 million illegal immigrants.

    That is not enough for the CPC. The memo, authored by CPC co-chairs Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and Keith Ellison (D-MN) says Obama should extend his amnesty benefits to:

    1. Individuals eligible for relief under S.744 [the Schumer amnesty bill];
    2. Parents, siblings, and spouses of citizens, lawful permanent resident (LPR) holders, and individuals eligible for DACA;
    3. Individuals who have resided in the country for three or more years;
    4. Individuals who are “regularly employed,” including agricultural and seasonal workers;
    5. Individuals that entered the country after the age of 18 but satisfy the DACA educational requirement.

    It is hard to imagine how any illegal immigrant would not qualify for amnesty under these proposals, but the MPI estimates that such a program would extend amnesty to "over 7 million undocumented immigrants."

    The CPC does have a strong logical case. If Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is legal, then there is no limit to who Obama can grant amnesty to. If Obama can give amnesty to DACA recipients, then he can give it to their parents, to their siblings, to anyone in the world really.

    The only way conservatives can stop this amnesty is to defund it. They must include language in the next government funding bill specifically forbidding Obama from spending any money issuing documents to illegal immigrants.

    If they don't, then Obama will be free to give work permits, Social Security numbers, and drivers licenses to whoever he wants.
