Bypassing Congress On Immigration posted an article yesterday about the new rules for dealing with illegal aliens just released in a memo from the Obama administration.  This is the link to the memo.  The memo makes some changes in enforcement that reflect the goals of the “Dream Act,” which was defeated by Congress.

The article reports:

“On Wednesday, ICE Union president Chris Crane told PRNewswire: “Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what’s coming.  This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States.  Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.””

The article further reports:

“Crane continued: “ICE and the Administration have excluded our unions and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers.  ICE worked hand-in-hand with immigrants rights groups, but excluded its own officers.””

There is additional bad news:

“”Our officers are already under orders not to make arrests or even talk to foreign nationals in most cases unless another agency has already arrested them; you won’t find that written in any public ICE policy,” Crane said.”

This is disturbing.  President Obama needs the Hispanic vote if he has any chance of being re-elected in 2012.  He is willing to put his political interests over the well-being of the country.  Congress needs to step up to the plate and investigate these policies.  Otherwise we are in danger to being overrun with people who come here illegally and live off the largess of the American taxpayer.
