“DHS uses prosecutorial discretion to assist in focusing vigorously on the removal of individuals who are convicted criminals, repeat immigration law violators, and recent border crossers.

In FY 2011, ICE removed more than 216,000 convicted criminal aliens, the largest number in the agency’s history and an 89 percent increase in the removal of criminals since the previous administration. Overall, more than ninety percent of ICE’s removals fell within our priority categories.

The Secretary’s memo on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a continuation of the Department’s focus on these priorities, and ensures that responsible young people, who are Americans in every way but on paper, have an opportunity to remain in the country and make their fullest contribution. This policy is a temporary measure; Congress must still act to provide a permanent solution to fix the broken immigration system.”

At the expense of those who are here legally.

This logic makes no sense:

Basically, we've heard that statement for the past three or so years from DHS.

1) They are admitting that they will ignore deporting people that they find to be here illegally under the idea that they are focusing on the illegal immigrants that commit crimes like drug trafficking, kidnapping or murder.

2) So, once all of those violent offenders are deported, then what? Are they going to rely on a broken border that is easily penetrable to keep other violent offenders out or to keep the ones caught from getting back in? Of course they aren't. So what we have is this continuous cop-out that DHS will use as an excuseas to why they are not protecting legal residents' education, opportunity, jobs and future.

When will they focus on those who are NOT committing violent or more serious crimes? They won't because they will keep using that excuse.

They have no intentions of removing illegals from this country. They're just going through the motions to give the appearance of actually doing something. They know the same illegals they deport generally return within a few weeks. Heck, they repeatedly arrest the same people, so they can't even pretend they don't know.

At the expense of those who have complied with the immigration laws and have been dutifully in line for citizenship.
