Longtime readers of this blog are familiar with how open-borders lawmakers in both major political parties use special congressional legislation to grant amnesty to individual illegal aliens seeking to evade deportation orders. Review my special reports from 2003 and 2007 on how the private relief bill process works.

You can see the more than 100-plus illegal alien waiver bills introduced this session by going to the THOMAS/Library of Congress website right now and typing in “for the relief of” in the search engine. A sample of the results:

The latest, high-profile illegal alien deportation waiver is being sponsored by California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein:

A San Francisco community college student awaiting deportation to his native Peru won a temporary reprieve Friday when U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation halting immigration enforcement proceedings against him.

Steve Li, 20, had been due to be separated from his parents and sent back to Peru last Monday, but federal immigration officials pushed back the deportation at Feinstein’s request while the California Democrat prepared the private relief measure that would allow him to remain in the U.S.

“It’s amazing. It’s extremely rare for a private bill to be introduced,” Li’s lawyer, Sin Yen Ling, told the Contra Costa Times. “It’s clear she thought this was an important case.”

Feinstein said in a statement accompanying the bill that Li moved to San Francisco with his parents when he was 12 and did not know they were all in the country illegally until immigration agents arrested them in September. The parents have been ordered to return to China, where they lived before they fled to Peru.

As the above screen cap shows, there’s nothing “rare” about these bills.

What the article doesn’t mention is that the family already petitioned for asylum status and a judge rejected the claim. They had their chance in court. The court said no. The family received a deportation order in 2004, which they chose to ignore.

Every time a private relief bill is introduced, it’s law-abiding immigrants and applicants who get punished.

As I’ve explained:

Every time a private relief bill passes, the number of available visas for that year is reduced by the number of illegal alien/deportable immigrant recipients granted legal status/deportation relief through the special legislation.

The bills needn’t pass for the recipients to gain benefits. Mere introduction of the bills buys the deportable aliens time that ordinary, law-abiding citizens can’t buy in our court system.

Federal lawmakers pressure immigration officials into releasing illegal aliens while their private bills work slowly through Capitol Hill. If the legislation is turned down (which is rare), it doesn’t matter. The intended beneficiaries can be set free, adding to the more than 600,000 fugitives from deportation that the federal government has yet to track down.

This is illegal alien amnesty by legislative fiat and another outrageous extension of the deportation abyss in the name of misguided compassion.

Where are all the GOP fence-sitting senators on this subversion of sovereignty and equal protection principles?

Ask them.
