    White House Official Compares Illegal Immigration to Jaywalk

    White House Official Compares Illegal Immigration to Jaywalking

    Washington (CNSNews.com) - Cecilia Munoz, the White House director of intergovernmental affairs, compared the federal crime of being in the country illegally to jaywalking.

    (video at source)

    "If you were running the police department of any urban area in this country, you would spend more resources going after serious criminals than after jaywalkers. DHS (the Department of Homeland Security) is doing the immigration equivalent of the same thing," Munoz told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) conference on Monday.

    Munoz was referring to the administration's new policy of "prosecutorial discretion," outlined in a June memo from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, which falls under DHS.

    Under the new policy, immigration officials will prioritize deportation orders, acting only on those involving people convicted of serious crimes or those who pose a national security or public safety threat.

    The memo also directs ICE agents to consider how long an individual has been in the U.S., whether that person has a spouse or children who are U.S. citizens, and whether that person has a serious criminal record. Crimes victims, witnesses to crimes, or people who are charged with minor traffic violations, would avoid deportation under the ICE guidance.

    Munoz said the administration is acting within its authority - "but we also all understand that even as we use our administrative authority, make the right enforcement judgments, it is not the permanent solution for anybody, it doesn't solve our immigration problems. In order to do that, we need the Congress of the United States."

    Munoz also indicated that the administration's new "discretion" policy is part of a "progression" of "work that's been going on for several years."

    "We have 10 million, 11 million undocumented people in this country and it's abundantly clear to anybody who's paying attention that we're not going to deport that entire population," said Munoz.

    "It's not humanly possible. It's ridiculously expensive...and so what DHS is doing for the first time is trying to have a strategy around the law-enforcement work that it does, and so while it's enforcing the law vigorously, as [Congressman Luis Gutierrez] points out, it's also making strategic judgments about who is a priority for enforcement and who isn't."

    At the same conference, Rep. Gutierrez (D-Ill.) thanked President Obama for by passing Congress when it comes to immigration.

    Not surprised, I suppose to the Pro-ILLEGALS and ILLEGALS "by passing Congress" is the same as crossing our National Borders as ILLEGALS!

    Another La Raza traitor within our government, disregarding our sovereignty and immigration law. So what else is new! I wonder if Munoz is an anchor baby.

    I'm so out raged I could go on a rant! Plain and simple I wish I had the choice to pay my taxes and the goverment would have to earn it and they could never barrow from another country. So the money they made were based on job performance they'd all starve!

    I am surprised that she had the time to even comment on this since she has been so busy finding ways to suck money money out of the government for illegal aliens by claiming racial discrimination. She didn't get the memo, Hispanic is not a race.

    Ok clamed down! I'm not too suprised either! This adminastration seems to think gun running isn't that big a deal either. What laws do they really follow it seems they are above all of them and the most decerning part is the repubs don't seem to care too much either! It seems they are two sides to the same coin!

    (CNSNews.com) – Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) thanked President Obama for circumventing the Legislative branch when it comes to immigration law.

    Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code makes it a federal crime to be in the United States illegally. Nevertheless, the Obama administration in August directed federal immigration officials to use "prosecutorial discretion" in deciding which illegal aliens to detain and deport.

    “We had a president of the United States that recently was speaking at National Council of La Raza who said during his speech, ‘There are those who simply wish me to bypass Congress when it comes to immigration,’ and many in the audience clapped, saying, ‘Yup, bypass Congress…’

    RAT - Thanks for the full text, of course Gov. Perry has been doing his part by signing the Texas version of the Dream Amnesty Act. I have a concern as I did when McCain was running for President if Perry is President he will convince enough spineless members of his own party that he can provide political cover for them to give Blanket Amnesty to all ILLEGALS.
