Administrative Amnesty is Already Happening

We’re beginning to wonder whether President Obama’s public displays of frustration that he can’t get an amnesty bill passed is simply a foil to divert attention away from the fact that amnesty is already underway! Amnesty has no hope legislatively but getting it done piecemeal – using the administrative apparatus of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to dismiss large categories of otherwise deportable illegal aliens – amounts to almost the same thing.

About Author


Bob Dane, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)'s Executive Director, has been with FAIR since 2006. His deep belief is that immigration is the most transformational determinant of where we are heading as a nation and that our policies must be reformed in the public interest. Over many years on thousands of radio, TV and print interviews, Bob has made the case that unless immigration is regulated and sensibly reduced, it will be difficult for America to reduce unemployment, increase wages, improve health care and education and heighten national security. Prior to joining FAIR, Bob spent twenty years in network radio, marketing and communications after an earlier career in policy and budgeting within the Reagan Administration. Bob has a degree from George Mason University in Public Administration and Management.
