Obama to stop deporting illegal relatives of U.S. troops, veterans

The Obama administration on Friday carved out yet another category of illegal immigrants it says it will no longer deport — in this case saying that relatives of U.S. troops and veterans who previously served can apply to stay in the country.

The administration said it was making the move because it was worried illegal immigration was hurting military readiness, and this would be a way to relieve some of the “stress and anxiety” faced by troops whose relatives are illegal immigrants.

In addition, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said the veterans have earned the right to have their illegal immigrant relatives stay in the country with them.

“Similarly, our veterans, who have served and sacrificed for our nation, can face stress and anxiety because of the immigration status of their family members in the United States. We as a nation have made a commitment to our veterans, to support and care for them. It is a commitment that begins at enlistment, and continues as they become veterans,” the agency said in a memo outlining the new policy.

The administration said the new policy applies to spouses, children and even parents of troops and veterans. They can apply for parole, which lets them stay in the country for one-year increments, which can be renewed by the department.

    Just another scam to keep these illegals here. I was never a supporter of illegals and (so called) ex-gang bangers being allowed to enter our service for a quick fix scam citizenship. This is just another abuse in the white house. Their family members ARE NOT putting themselves in any harm and that they never were suppose to be here to begin with. You serve your country because you want to for the right reasons and that you are a patriot. Not an illegal looking for a free ride into this country and than you just happen to tell your extended family to come over the border? Just another scam that the demorats told the illegals to do. Besides the demorats owning slaves decades ago and we had to fight them because they wouldn’t free their slaves; guess what else the demorats did after the war with their freed property (blacks)? Many blacks went back to Africa but the ones who wanted to stay, ran to their ex-owners and ask, how can we stay. We don’t want to go back to Africa. Just like the Mexican anchor babies of today, the demorats told the blacks to have babies and they could stay. Just another scam flam from the left. Scam, scam, scam.
    Scam should be the new commie party name for the demorats. Yes, it’s the commie scam party.
