lllegalsTo mark May Day last week, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) invited people who are in the country illegally to Capitol Hill where they released a list of executive orders they believe President Barack Obama should put in place, including stopping all deportations and bringing back deportees who have family here.

At the event, held in the Canon Office Building, seven people who are part of a “Blue Ribbon Commission” – six illegal aliens and an immigration attorney – that released a list of 14 things Obama could do (according to legal scholars they consulted with) to provide amnesty to millions without congressional approval.

“We insist that the timing [of the executive orders] be immediate and the scope be as broad and bold as possible,” a summary of the commission’s findings states.

The 14 recommended executive orders include:

• End all deportations and “Expand use of humanitarian parole to endure that people previously deported can return to the U.S.”

• Expand Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – Obama’s executive order that puts on hold the deportation of individuals who were brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents as children – to “as many people as possible”;

• End the successful “Secure Communities” program that is now in all 50 states and provides a partnership between local and federal law enforcement personnel to enforce immigration laws;

• “Drastically curtail the use of detention” for illegal aliens.

The group, dubbed #Not1More, included Angel Hernandez-Gomez “a young undocumented and queer organizer from Durham, N.C.,” who is “committed to defending his family, and all women, trans people, sex workers and other people of color from the fear of deportation,” according to his biography distributed at the event.

Maricela Munoz has been in the country illegally for 12 but now faces deportation after driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an accident.

“I want to ask President Obama and also the rest of the Congress both and elected officials to be able to also touch their heart, their humanity,” Munoz said through a translator. “To think about, when they think about our cases and deliberate our futures and our destinies that they think about with a different level of humbleness and acknowledgment of the suffering and the sacrifices that our people have made to just be here.”

    According to some estimates, $17 billion is wasted each year on educating anchor-baby offspring of illegal aliens.

    If they can do it ,so can we, I know one thing they sure have their nerve. What makes them think they can step ahead of those who come here the legal way? What makes these illegals think they deserve special treatment? Did they get a visa, did they get a work permit, did they have the interviews with immigration officials, did they get a medical exam, did they fill out ALL the forms, did they pay all those fees, did they have their biometrics? NO, THEY DID NOT. So why should they get special treatment and not have to do what the law says they have to do to be in America? This is a slap in the face of all LEGAL immigrants. They have no idea what those demands they are making, what impact it will have on America. The Supreme Court has said that local governments can now stop illegals from getting work.I wonder if it will happen? Yes it will when we , American citizens demand it under threat of voting them out of office. Threaten them with the loss of their jobs, and something will happen. Guaranteed.

    Personally, I like the idea of inviting illegals to all congregate to one spot, mouth off in public, and generally make it much easier to herd them all up on hot,loud, non air conditioned Blue Bird school buses that always seemed to meet me everywhere I went while I was in the US Army, and truck their rediculous selves back across the border. What other country in the world would allow people to enter illegally, and then actually have the unbelievable gall to actually make DEMANDS? Really? You jumped the fence, swam the river, or just overstayed your temp visa, guess what? Better brush up on your spanish.

    How can “illegals” DEMAND anything? How about American citizens and people legally waiting for Naturalization start DEMANDING that our immigration laws be enforced and our borders secured?
