If You Can't Legislate, Regulate
— Dave in Texas

220, 221, whatever it takes.

DHS is scrambling over a leaked internal memo, the kind you write up after assembling a team of bureaucrats to assess a problem and come up with a list of "Things We Could Do If Congress Won't Take On Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants".

Not things they'd actually do. Noooo. Just possibilities, they were just spitballin.

Among the things they wouldn't actually do:

USCIS could grant “parole-in-place,” which comes with a work permit and the ability to obtain a green card, to certain classes of aliens who entered the country illegally. Such classes would include those who entered as minors and those who “have lived for many years in the U.S.” A nice reward for those who have successfully violated the law for the longest period of time.

For those who overstay their visas, the memo recommends granting “deferred action,” which means that deportation is deferred indefinitely and the illegal alien can apply for a work permit. The memo suggests two particular categories of illegal aliens for deferred action: those who might benefit if Congress were to pass the DREAM Act amnesty (of which there are 2.1 million, according to the Migration Policy Institute) and those “who have resided in the U.S. since 1996 (or as of a different date designed to move forward the Registry provision now limited to entries before January 1, 1972).” The “Registry provision” referred to is an actual federal law, not that it matters to the memo’s authors.

To make sure no illegal alien is left behind, the memo suggests that DHS could simply stop issuing “Notices to Appear” (the document that starts the removal process for illegal aliens) unless the alien has a “significant negative immigration or criminal history.” Apparently, violating immigration law once or twice is acceptable. These folks wouldn’t be able to apply for a work permit, but since the Obama administration isn’t conducting worksite enforcement against illegal aliens much anymore, that shouldn’t matter.

The official response to the memo is "we don't comment on internal memos.. blah blah fidgety blah. Bitches." So I'm reassured in that regard.

In other news about the most ethical Congress evah, Maxine Turnipface Waters may face ethics charges, likely punished with another tappy tap of love on the wrist.

A little O/T, but relevant to our discussion nonetheless.  Saw the following at Investors.com, and knowing the titans of Wall Street read Ace, I offer you this reader comment:

Maybe it is time for a producers strike to just bring the collapse at a time of our choosing. Tank the markets (think September) ahead of the November elections and see how Democrats combat that. It worked for them in 2008, let's put it to work for us. We probably won't have to push very hard to make it come down.

12 Can someone tell me why taking the country back doesn't describe exactly what's needed, Michael Medved to the contrary.

"

Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne!

"In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free -- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending -- if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged,and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained -- we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British New Black Panther Party guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction?"

Patrick Henry, with only the slightest change needed to update it for our present condition.

13 Such classes would include those who entered as minors and those who “have lived for many years in the U.S.”

I'm sure the proof for such conditions would be super stringent, eh?  Like the "proof" those AA so-called farmers, who never farmed in their lives, had to give to claim their discrimination by the USDA and cash in on $50K.

14 Hey guess what happened back in '96?

The federal Government empowered the State and local governments to enforce immigration checks.

When even Ed and AP are on top of Jugears' fumbles you know the court case should be a slam dunk.  Either the men and or women in black judge the law as it exists, or the rule and impartiality of law is an ever increasing joke.

can't wait to hear O'bumbles try to argue that old law means nothing, it is how I interpret it that matters.....

remember folks Kos and friends swore that Bush was unethically expanding the imperial presidency and Jugears would change it...

15 This is quite simple to resolve.

If you change the law that makes them illegal then they are legal.

So, that pesky sovereignty thingy that makes all of these hard working fine outstanding humans that we can't do without and that are working hard trafficking pharmaceuticals that Americans refuse to traffic were to be abolished well then...poof they are no longer illegal.

You would then be the illegal emigrant.

24 Note how this is called "comprehensive immigration reform" in the heading of the memo.

This means that they are redefining "comprehensive" to mean "amnesty" and not amnesty plus enforcement.

These scum abuse the language to achieve their goals. next they will be offering up an amnesty bill and saying they are giving people the comprehensive bill they want.

32 This is tyranny, straight up. Anyone who says otherwise is either deluded or a willing accomplice. The time for debate (reasoned or otherwise [see Wiener, Anthony]) has passed. I'd like to believe that this November will mean something, but only if a swarm of conservatives win, the Republican party is purged of the RINO/slow-speed socialist hacks, and the majority has the guts to reverse course, repeal and start drastically shrinking the size, scope and power of the Federal government. If not, if the will of the people is further ignored and the Alinsky-ite agenda is imposed on us, then there really is no other alternative than R*****TION.

The politicians want amnesty (A)
the public wants enforcement (B)

the politicians talk about A + B, called comprehensive reform (C)
but the public knows that they will get A but B will never happen.
The public wants B

Now they are saying "look, you wont accept C, so we will  force  A on the country, and call it C

42 From the "Outreach" tab on the USCIS website: "Our Goal is to… -Build new partnerships and enhance existing relationships with a broad range of stakeholders, including community based and faith-based organizations, state and local government representatives, advocacy groups, and other stakeholders who are interested in USCIS policies and operations. -Maintain a transparent and collaborative approach to policy making and agency operations through information sharing, stakeholder feedback, and engagement opportunities. -Have ongoing and robust dialogue with stakeholders to achieve our mission and core values." It looks like it was written by a freshman social psychology major or Journolista. Who do you suppose he/she/it means by "stakeholder?" My guess is the likes of Hon. Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Substitute the the term "stakeholder" for "Bolshevik" and we have hot, Democrat pudding-dipping.

1.  Play Race Card

2.  Feign ignorance/lack of knowledge

3.  Blame lower level flunkies.

It seems that if you serve in the military, then you are, by definition, a qualified, high-level public servant and so much so that you shall not be investigated for any violation. Ever.

You see, some veterans would experience their first bad day at some point during service, and it would be criminal for you to force them to face another "bad day" at any point in the future, no matter the circumstance. They deserve carte blanche until the heavens cease.

Yes, you are right!  And Rangel served during a "good war", Korea, not a "bad" war like Vietnam, Gulf War 1 or Gulf War 2.  I believe Murtha used the veteran card too, it covered him with absolute moral authority.  However it only works as a trump card if you are a Democrat.  If you are a Republican, then you are obviously a war mongerer/baby killer.

Yeah, ain't that the truth!  It would eliminate all kinds of wasteful spending and pork too.  The fact that my tax dollars are going to fund Bawney Fwank, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, Charlie Rangel, etc. into perpetuity (their pensions and health benefits after they retire) just make me want to scream!

83 Overwhelm the system.  It's in their playbook.  Brief story:  My daughter had a gran mal seizure when she was 16.  After stabilizing at a nearby hospital she was transported to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston for better care.  By that time she was basically in a coma and I was wandering the hallways of the emergency ward noticing that most of the people there didn't look like the sort to have insurance or immigration papers for that matter.  I mentioned it to a guy I worked with and he said, "I can tell you exactly how many have insurance.  My daughter does the accounting for TCH.  78% of the patients have no insurance."  The staff is judicially prohibited from questioning anyone about status or from denying care.  We're sinking.  And it is all part of the plan.

Such classes would include those who entered as minors and those who “have lived for many years in the U.S.” A nice reward for those who have successfully violated the law for the longest period of time.

i
f your parents or a parent brought you into the country when your 2, got that? 2 years old and you possibly dont even speak spanish its hard to morally and logically pin a lawbreaker label on that person an say he's being "rewarded for purposely being a "violator" ive seen cases of people deported who dont even speak the language of thier "home country" because they were brought to the US at such an early age. and they are often surprised they arent a US citizen.

dont confuse what im saying as to mean I am a sympathizer for ilegal immigration. just making a point for restraint as opossed to blind support of a position. thats how the democraps and lieborels run the indoctromedia.

93 Hi all, I'm only on here for a short short this morning. I am doing long put off yard work before the thunder boomers start.

But early this morning I found this writeup in the Charleston paper and I remembered that Jane D'oh liked that area and since this new inexpensive housing had just hit the market I thought she would be interested.

Jane this is just the kind of low priced housing that you are looking for.

http://tinyurl.com/375vnt8

That is the real estate ad in in the local realters computer ads.

And if you want to see the surroundings just go to our old standby Google Map and input 2 Water Street, Charleston, SC.

You just have to be aware that it is an older property and may need some minor fixer-uper stuff.

Also be aware that it IS inside the city limits of Charleston and also some other things because of the age, so there may be just a few deed covenants and encumbrances.

Also parking may be a little tight if you have more than 2 vehicles and local traffic will be somewhat heavy.

And the price, well I'm sure its a steal at $10,000,000.00. Of course that was from the paper which alerted me to the fact that this run down old shack had hit the market.

So rush on over there and check on this thing. If I was in the market for Charleston housing I would be there in a heartbeat.

There are many proxying tools you can install, but this one is fantastic if you have just a little tech savvy. They're best on a perimeter firewall as the processing power to parse data is on a dedicated, isolated machine; but, on today's fast PCs, you can install it locally on your individual machine and it would serve you well. It would clean up a bunch of the tracking crap you're inundated with... known and unknown.

The Dims have been complicit in The Vapid One's™ efforts to undermine the republic. It will come back to haunt them.

In a sad way, Judge Bolton did us a favor in staying the Arizona illegal immigrant law's implementation. It kept us from getting complacent while at the same time reinforcing the fact that this administration is actively seeking our destruction. If they do a runaround on Congress, the lumpenproles just might start getting a bit rowdy, especially with the November elections coming up. In fact, it's looking more and more like November might be the only shot we have in stopping these idiot Marxists. We've been taken over by our enemies, who were duly elected. It's time we started to reverse the procedure and clean House (and the Senate, too).

99 Mr. Dave, regarding those 78% of patients who have no insurance and yet still must be treated regardless of their ability to pay, who imposes that burden on the local resource? Would that be the federal government? Is this not an undue burden? Aren't those feds the guys we can't even put a theoretical burden on?

If I were governor of AZ, I'd say it's a miracle to find out that placing an undue burden on governmental resources invalidates the statue of the burdening party. Therefore, if any hospital wants to turn people away, I ain't gonna stop them. Make the feds come and do it. Speed limits, minimum age to purchase cigarettes, drinking age, aren't those federally required? Fine, but locals aren't going to enforce them. Come down here ATF, and wherever you set up shop might be subject to a special tax, to pay for those we've got have on hand to watch your every move. Oh, and it's a terrible drag to have to keep track of everybody's withholding level claimed, and to keep up with federal tax tables that keep shifting and playing hell with our accounting procedures. So we're not withholding squat on any check issued by the State of Arizona. You federal tax collectors who want to do something about it, well come and get your money. Again, expect to pay a special fee and more taxes wherever you set up shop, because we'll be watching you. Real close.

'Undead Zombie Option' resurrected in Congress - Can anything permanently slay monster Americans don't want?

Like the gauze-wrapped creatures who just won't stay dead in those late-night movies you're too tired to turn off, the "public option" has returned to Washington.

An analysis by Investor's Business Daily, which called it the "Zombie Option," said the idea – rejected in debate over the health-care plan signed into law earlier this year – is being promoted yet again as a way to save the government money.

Democratic Reps. Lynn Woolsey and Pete Stark of California and Jan Schakowsky of Illinois have joined to put together the newest proposal called the "public option act." 

It was only a few days ago when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told a Las Vegas convention, "We're going to have a public option. It's' a question of when," according to IBD.

The plan by that time already was proposed on paper, and it now has 128 House Democratic Party co-sponsors, the report said.

The proposal states: "For years beginning with 2014, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (in this subtitle referred to as the 'Secretary') shall provide for the offering through Exchanges established under this title of a health benefits plan (in this Act referred to as the 'public health insurance option') that ensures choice, competition, and stability of affordable, high-quality coverage throughout the United States in accordance with this section. In designing the option, the Secretary's primary responsibility is to create a low-cost plan without compromising quality or access to care."

Considering your original comment about a particular company's ad, I'm going with anti-racist.  Oh...and I'm anti-slow load too.

This spirit of emminent domain has moved into NC.  Bev Purdue is now trying to force ALCOA to turn over their ownership of a dam (or dams) to the state.  Would any other business choose to invest in NC after this?

All part of the plan.  Check out the UN's Agenda 21, signed by HW Bush.  He thought it wouldn't amount to anything, being a "soft" document, but this Congress has run with it.  "Representatives" of the gubmint are infiltrating localities with a rosy-sounding green agenda and the locally elected dumbarses are signing on.  It's designed to eliminate personal property as the US is the last country on earth with private property. 

These emmisaries also figure in "adjoining" property to disallow private property holders from developing their property if it backs up to govt-owned land.  They've made A LOT of headway.  We had a speaker outline this at our last Patriot mtg and it was like a collective gut punch.  I believe she said about 19 Virginia counties/cities had signed on.  The audience looked like they were going to be ill.

147 You say you want a Revolution?

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We'd all love to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know know it's gonna be alright

148 Sitting in the nether belly of the beast (O'Hare) waiting for my brothers and their daughters to arrive from Lower Michigan and Iowa. For the second year in a row Mrs ya2 and I are hosting our three nieces at our beach house (double-wide trailer) on Rehoboth Bay, DE. Boating, tubing, doing the boardwalks and other beach stuff. Outta here and back to Philadelphia in two hours, God willing!

Big Sis has a catch and release plan for illegals. She needs to go one step further and place a tag in their ear lobes so that they can be tracked. Hell we do that now in AZ to problem bears.

I want to cry but can't - so I'll buy some smokes tonight.

We are operating under a spell and it is one totally at odds with the founding of this great country. Liberty was the one and only initiative of the founders and they rightfully understood it to be conferred by the Creator God. 

Man is a political animal as Plato wrote and thus the founders realized their initiative of liberty could only be based upon natural rights as opposed to statutory rights.  

The irony and hypocrisy of it all is moving us toward centralized power with a constitution subverted for the "collective's advantage." 

Liberty has always come at a price for it is never a steady state proposition.

This go around is socialism's final frontier.

Stay tuned and keep standing up . . .

151 I think the Congessional Black Caucus has a point. Where are Dodd and Barney in these show trials?

152 Make this public, and feed it to as many media outlets as possible. The more this sort of dishonesty and corruption is illuminated, the better the chances of an effective cleanout this upcoming November.

153 I had not heard of the DREAM Act.

Just when I think it can't get any worse and I can't get more angry.

Young Illegals Out Themselves, Daring To Be Deported On July 20, 22 young illegal immigrants in caps and gowns entered the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., and began sit-ins in the offices of several senators. Twelve soon returned to the atrium, where they formed a circle around a banner reading "Undocumented and Unafraid." Refusing to be moved, the students were arrested by Capitol Police, as were nine others who had stayed put in the offices of Sen. John McCain and Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Less than two miles away, a similar protest by a separate but allied group was taking place at Lafayette Square in front of the White House. These students went a step further. Openly announcing their immigration status and giving their full names just across the Mall from Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters, they forced a difficult choice upon ICE officials.

ICE has stated that it has no intention of initiating deportation proceedings against the students arrested in the Washington protests.

157 I'll give illegal amnesty and you'll like it!  If I wanted your opinion I'd tax it out of you so STFU!
