Questioning Obama’s New Administration Policy
August 26, 2012 § 1 Comment
The President Obama’s new administration policy to provide security against deportation faced by undocumented immigrants who entered US as children and stayed in US for 5 years with good academic or military records.
Doebler and nine other ICE agents launched a lawsuit against Obama’s new policy and they argue that this policy made it impossible for them to do their job.
Roy Beck, an advocacy group for more restrictive immigration that is bankrolling the lawsuit told CNN on Friday about goal of lawsuit is to force a court to check whether the new administration policy is legal. Beck also said that we wouldn’t be pleased if it is legal adding, we also strongly believe that President doesn’t have rights to this.
According to Pacheco, the political director of United We Dream Obama’s new policy is a political plan to get more votes in election time.
“I can’t imagine any judge would even give them standing to file the case, much less decide it on the merits,” Toobin, CNN senior legal analyst said. “I am unaware of any law that allows federal employees to challenge the legality of the actions of their superiors.”
According to the lawsuit, Doebler “arrested an alien who was unlawfully present in the United States and issued the alien an NTA (notice to appear), contrary to the general directions of his supervisors that he should decline to issue NTAs to certain illegal aliens.”
Obama made clear that the new policy for undocumented young immigrants was intended to be a temporary step until Congress comes up with new law that considers this situation.
