  • Nov 11 - Obama's Next Steps

    Comment: Obama's Next Steps
    Following the midterm election President Obama repeated his pledge to enact immigrations-related executive actions. In an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation," the President remarked

    "I'd prefer and still prefer to see it done through Congress," ... "But every day that I wait, we're misallocating resources, we're deporting people that shouldn't be deported, we're not deporting folks that are dangerous and need to be deported." (Bloomberg)

    Bloomberg's columnist speculates that these remarks actually hint on the executive actions that are being contemplated. These include: instructing the Department of Homeland Security to prioritize the deportations of criminals.

    While the order would not legalize anyone who has not committed a serious crime, ... it would effectively mean that the bulk of undocumented immigrants would not face the same scrutiny.

    In addition, the Bloomberg's columnist conjectures that the phrase "people that shouldn't be deported" implies that the President is considering another DACA-like program.
