Another day means another excuse dreamed up by the Obama regime for them to refuse to do their jobs when it comes to securing our borders and ridding us of the scourge of illegal aliens. The latest effort to justify doing nothing or worse, violating our laws and assisting the squatters is another twist on the ever-popular “grant them status” scheme.
While the population of Ecuador that was inside the country had to deal with a huge earthquake in April that killed hundreds of people, the Ecuadorans who were illegally squatting inside the United States were safely out of harm’s way. They are also at no risk of deportation since America doesn’t do that sort of thing any more under the outlaw Obama. There is no legitimate reason to change their status.
Of course there is the illegitimate reason of the fundamental transformation agenda. That’s always a great reason in the eyes of the Obamanistas to circumvent the law and the wishes of the American people. Judicial Watch reported on Friday in part:
Word of a special earthquake amnesty for Ecuadorean nationals living in the United States illegally is spreading like wildfire in Spanish media reports published throughout Latin America recently. A catastrophic, magnitude 7.8 temblor struck the ailing South American nation’s pacific coast on April 16, killing hundreds and injuring thousands. Undoubtedly, it’s been devastating and worthy of the tremendous humanitarian aid being provided by the U.S. government as well as a multitude of charities.
However, the Ecuadorean nationals who stand to benefit from yet another one of President Obama’s disaster amnesty initiatives already lived in the U.S. illegally when the earthquake hit. Offering this perk is like rewarding bad—in this case illegal—behavior. We’ve already seen this occur many times in the last few years and Judicial Watch has documented it in a number of reports.
Obama has granted Ebola amnesty for illegal aliens from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, earthquake amnesty for Haitians, hurricane amnesty for Hondurans and Nicaraguans and “ongoing armed conflict” amnesty for nationals of Yemen, an Islamic Middle Eastern country well known as an Al Qaeda breeding ground. Earlier this year the administration rewarded illegal aliens in the Southern and Midwestern United States “severe weather” amnesty due to the flooding that battered the region and forced rivers from Texas to Illinois to surge out of control.
Considering this record, it’s not unreasonable to assume that the administration will eventually issue an earthquake amnesty for illegal aliens from Ecuador. Officially this is known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian measure designed to temporarily shield illegal immigrants from deportation during emergencies.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is consulting with “appropriate agencies” as it evaluates the earthquake’s impact and Ecuador’s recovery efforts to determine if a TPS order is necessary, according to a newspaper report in El Salvador that quotes a DHS spokesperson. The agency is already helping Ecuadoreans in the U.S. by granting work permits and waving visa fees if candidates show that their financial situation has been hurt by the earthquake, according to a document posted in Spanish on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website.
It states that USCIS offers “migratory relief measures” for those affected by natural disasters such as the recent severe earthquakes in Ecuador, Japan and Burma. This is clearly targeted at Ecuadoreans since Japanese and Burmese don’t usually speak or read Spanish.
