DACA fix will spur new wave of illegal immigration: ICE chief

Passing a “clean” Dream Act to legalize illegal immigrant “Dreamers” will spur a new wave of illegal immigration and create a new population that will need an amnesty 10 or 20 years in the future, the government’s chief deportation official said Tuesday.

Tom Homan, who has been acting as the chief at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement since the beginning of the Trump administration, said even the talk of a renewed immigration debate on Capitol Hill will entice people to make the perilous journey to try to jump the border, saying during his nearly 35 years in immigration enforcement he’s seen it happen “every time you talk about some sort of benefit” such as legal status for illegal immigrants.

“It certainly increases illegal crossings, that’s been proven for the last three decades I’ve been around,” Mr. Homan said at an event sponsored by the Center for Immigration Studies.

In a valedictory address as he prepares for retirement at the end of this month Mr. Homan said any move by Congress to legalize Dreamers who are part of the Obama-era DACA program must also get at the root causes that spurred them to come years ago in the first place. Otherwise, he said, the country is setting itself up for yet another amnesty in the future.

    Paul Ryan’s DC phone is either overloaded or off the hook.

    We need your urgent phone calls TODAY before tomorrow’s meeting to House Speaker Paul Ryan telling him that any deal on DACA must reduce legal immigration by ending chain migration and must require employers to use E-Verify.

    …Speaker Ryan — (877) 753-8801

    Keep calling the traitor!

    Just hours away from a key meeting between House Republicans where GOP Leaders hope to announce a deal that would award an amnesty to at least 1 million illegal aliens. According to media reports, key negotiators are close to striking a deal.

    Only 2 more House Republicans need to sign Curbelo/Denham Amnesty Discharge Petition to force floor votes on several no-strings amnesty proposals. See the list of current signers here. Call your U.S. Representative and urge him/her NOT to sign the Petition.

    The Republican Petition signers include traitors:

    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.)
    Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.)
    Rep. David G. Valadao (R-Calif.)
    Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas)
    Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.)
    Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah)
    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.)
    Rep. Charles Dent (R-Pa.)
    Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.)
    Rep. David Reichert (R-Wash.)
    Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.)
    Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.)
    Rep. John Faso (R-N.Y.)
    Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.)
    Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.)
    Rep. Leonard Lance (R-N.J.)
    Rep. Ryan Costello (R-Pa.)
    Rep. Steve Knight (R-Calif.)
    Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.)
    Rep. Dave Trott (R-Calif.)
    Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-Minn.)
    Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.)
    Rep. Brian K. Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.)

    I like Bob Goodlatte’s Bill ………minus the DACA portion.

    We own these DACA illegal aliens nothing. If everyone thinks these DACA illegal aliens are that good, let them go back to their own country and apply to come here legally.
    There can be NO AMNESTY for these DACA illegal aliens. Period!
