Visa Waiver Proposal!

Published

on

Obama Visa Waiver ProposalPresident Obama last Friday submitted a visa waiver proposal of new rules streamlining the process for some illegal immigrants to remain in the country while they apply for citizenship. U.S. spouses would be able to file “Hardship Waivers” and the time to process them could be cut significantly.

Some of today’s headlines:

Some illegal immigrants with U.S. citizen spouses or parents would be allowed to apply for hardship waivers from the U.S. But Republicans accuse the president of proposing these visa waivers as a ‘backdoor amnesty.’

And;

Several senior House liberals are cheering President Obama this week after his administration proposed new rules making it easier for some illegal immigrants to remain in the country while they apply for citizenship.

Immigration Reform will now move forward in significant, focused measures. Bypassing Congress altogether, President Obama is sure to win support for re-election, to make good, even if he was very late in doing so, on campaign promises to Hispanics — a huge and growing U.S. voting bloc that helped him win the presidency in 2008:

“The President deserves credit for setting in place another essential building block through administrative action — moving us closer to a common sense immigration policy — that puts America, its families and its economy first,” Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Friday in a statement.

Will his visa waiver proposal actually help him though? Hispanic members of the GOP in Florida don’t think so.  This visa waiver proposal seems pretty transparent to them.  But if they consider who was actually in Obama’s way when he failed to deliver, they’ll perhaps be able to focus their power in the way that it should be, instead of sabotaging their true aims.

A battle over Trump’s border wall could shut down major parts of the government for the third time this year

President Donald Trump has requested $5 billion in U.S. funding for his proposed wall on the U.S.-Meixco border, however, the Democrats refused to agree to such a sum.

On CNBC, the story quotes:

Once again, a spat over President Donald Trump’s immigration plans has derailed talks to keep the government open.

Congress faces a Dec. 7 deadline to fund parts of the government. Trump signed spending legislation in September for five agencies, such as the departments of Defense and Health and Human Services, for the next fiscal year. But lawmakers still need to fund seven other agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security.

As Congress has already approved money for large parts of the federal government, a partial shutdown will have limited effects on its core functions. The funding fight does have stakes for how much of the president’s immigration agenda he can enact as a migrant crisis plays out at the southern border.

Migrant Caravan Set To Cross Border

Mexico Migrant Caravan Border Crossing

The “Migrant Caravan” is now set to attempt to cross the Mexican border into the United States.

It’s uncertain as to what will take place, but there have been very pointed statements by both those opposing, and supporting the undertaking.

On Yahoo, the story quotes:

As the issue exploded into a diplomatic row, organizers of the caravan quietly broke it up.

The Department of Homeland Security issued a stark warning Wednesday to the first 120 who arrived, including some 50 minors.

“If you enter our country illegally, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution,” DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said.

Nielsen said those making false immigration claims or helping others to do so would also be prosecuted.

Around 600 migrants are still traveling more or less together by hopping trains and taking buses.

The first two buses will be followed by three more, said organizer Irineo Mujica of the migrant rights group People Without Borders.

and Reuters reports:

Busloads of migrants began arriving on Tuesday at a shelter that was a five minute-walk from the border and within sight of a U.S. flag waving under an overpass connecting the two countries.

While many rested in tents after a month-long journey across Mexico, others wandered up to the border to contemplate the next stage in their journey.

“The wall doesn’t look that tall,” said Kimberly George, a 15-year-old girl from Honduras as she looked toward a stunted barrier a few feet away. “I really want to cross it.”
