Trump’s DHS Nominee Says She Will ‘Look Into’ Reopening DACA Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

Uh, what the hell?

Breitbart: President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Department of Homeland Security says she will “look into” reopening applications for the expiring DACA amnesty program.

During a congressional hearing this week, Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris pushed nominee Kirstjen Nielsen to allow more illegals to enroll in the program, even though Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DACA program’s award of residency and work permits to 690,000 beneficiaries would expire in March 2018. AG Sessions also ended further enrollment in the program, which was widely expected to be struck down by the federal courts.

Harris’ and Nielsen’s exchange went as follows:

HARRIS: Thank you. At a September 27th hearing, I asked [DHS] Acting-Secretary [Elaine] Duke to extend the October 5th renewal deadline for DACA recipients. It did not happen. It has been reported that roughly 21,000 recipients were not able to gather the documentation, and the $495 that was required as part of the filing, before the deadline. If confirmed, will you reopen the application process and allow these individuals the opportunity to renew their status?

NIELSEN: I would commit to you to look into it. I’m not familiar with the specific numbers, but if there are extenuating circumstances that we should take into consideration, I would look into those and talk with you further. [Emphasis added]

HARRIS: I would urge you that part of the extenuating circumstances that should be taken into account is a national survey that found 57 percent of Americans say that right now they do not have the ability to pay $500 of an unexpected bill. Additionally, there have been a number of natural disasters around the country, including my own home state, where Americans have lost their entire belongings, their paperwork, and they are barely getting through the day, much less have the ability to compile extensive documentation and come up with $495.

And I would urge you to prioritize that fact when you think of the extenuating circumstances.

NIELSEN: Yes, ma’am.

 

The DACA amnesty-and-work-permit program was invented in 2012 by former President Barack Obama. However, federal laws block illegal immigrants from working in the United States to ensure that companies cannot force down wages by importing cheap labor from overseas.

Here’s Nielsen sitting next to Rubio. Aren’t they just adorable?

 

Nielsen made numerous statements during the congressional hearing that directly contradicted Trump’s America First immigration reform agenda.

For example, as Breitbart News reported, Nielsen said Americans “owe” it to give DACA illegal aliens a permanent amnesty to remain in the U.S.

“I believe that we must and we owe it to them to find a permanent solution,” Nielsen said of passing a DACA amnesty that could potentially lead to a chain migration of 9.9 million to 19 million foreign nationals pouring into the U.S. legally. “It’s no way to expect anyone to live a month or two months at a time,” said Nielsen, even though the DACA work-permits each last for two years.

Nielsen additionally downplayed Trump’s single most important priority for ending illegal immigration: Constructing a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

  1. I don’t know why a Trump nominee would pander to senate democrats, they’re just going crow about all the concession they got out of the person then vote against who ever it is anyway.

    I wonder, was Ivanka and Jared put in charge of staffing?

  2. The autodelegitimization of our country continues apace. When the government doesn’t follow or inconsistently follows laws, and offers huge carve-outs for obvious lawbreakers, the citizenry loses faith in the system. Eventually, nobody will follow the “law” because it doesn’t really exist. Banana f***ing republic, here we come.

  3. which was widely expected to be struck down by the federal courts

    Really? How’s that case coming along? Where was it filed, again? Which of the “Republican” attorneys general initiated that action? Which of the “Republican” governors demanded their states be granted legal relief by the federal courts? You see, Virginia, “elections have consequences”.

  4. I’m almost done listening to “Trump has it all under control. It’s a big ass 3D chess plan” hope and dreaming.

    Ten plus months of waiting. Will we have to wait for four years and be begged to re-elect Trump so he can really really build the wall and send all the illegal invaders home?

    Maybe I’m just in a bad mood today, but I’d like him to pull the rug out from under all the traitors in the swamp. That includes government, judiciary and media. Do it now.

  5. She was asked how she planned to counter the drug implosion into the US from southern border, her reply: “we need to go into the communities of these Central American countries and help to provide jobs & opportunities”.

    John Kelly did Trump no favors by recommending her. She’s in way over her pay grade & easily manipulated.

  6. Trump ought to be on the phone thanking her for her time but informing her that her services are no longer needed. Then call Bannon and ask him to find a Director of Homeland Security that’s actually interested in protecting the homeland. Sarah Palin may be a good start.
