President Obama continues to call for amnesty for illegal aliens to bring them out of the “shadows.” Well, the Administration must be blind because many of them are right in the spotlight. In fact, they brag about it.
In a March 12 USA Today article, Mohammad Abdollahi, a 26-year-old illegal alien, tells reporters, “We realized that the more public we are with our stories, the safer we are,” referring to illegal aliens broadcasting their status. Shortly after Abdollahi advertised his, his lawyer received a call from immigration officials stating they were no longer pursuing his case.
Abdollahi, unfortunately, is just one of many examples of how the Administration continues to ignore U.S. immigration law, claiming that it is merely “prioritizing” its resources. Funny, the Administration did not seem to care about prioritizing its resources when it created a 24/7 hotline for illegal aliens, or created a new illegal alien advocate position within ICE.
