Since Day One of the Obama administration, I’ve shed light on the White House illegal alien amnesty-by-fiat strategy. I’ve obtained yet another memo, unleashed during the holiday season, that is enraging rank-and-file DHS officers. This is just the latest in a series of enforcement-sabotaging memos from ICE chief John Morton. In a nutshell, the Morton memo will make it more difficult for local police to detain illegal alien criminal suspects through the 287(g) deportation program. The directive states that “three or more convictions for minor traffic misdemeanors or other relatively minor misdemeanors alone should not trigger a detainer unless the convictions reflect a clear and continuing danger to others or disregard for the law.” The memo builds on other Morton directives aimed at limiting the scope of immigration enforcement at the behest of open-borders leftists (see here and here).
In the words a tipster who e-mailed me this week: The policy “is designed to further undermine our mission…I really fear for the future of our country.”
Read the document for yourselves:
