Feds going door-to-door to seize illegal immigrants’ Obama amnesty approvals


Judge Andrew Hanen has given Jeh Johnson and the Department of Homeland Security until the end of this month to recapture all of the illegally distributed “amnesty and work authorization” permits the DHS allowed during the time they ignored the judges’ order.

“The government has conceded that it has directly violated this court’s order in its May 7, 2015 advisory, yet, as of today, two months have passed since the advisory and it has not remediated its own violative behavior,” the judge wrote. “That is unacceptable and, as far as the Government’s attorneys are concerned, completely unprofessional.”

[Hanen] set an Aug. 19 hearing, and said unless the government can fix things by July 31, each of the defendants named in the case — Mr. Johnson and his top lieutenants in the immigration agencies — would have to appear to explain themselves.

“Otherwise, the Court intends to utilize all available powers to compel compliance,” Judge Hanen wrote. (link)

DHS is now facing a challenging task of remediating the approvals and work authorizations previously granted.

After two months of unsuccessful requests for the illegal alien community to voluntarily return the paperwork, DHS is now forced to go door-to-door to recapture the authorizations they illegally distributed.

The Washington Times has more – Goosed into action by an angry federal judge, federal immigration authorities will go door-to-door demanding illegal immigrants return the three-year amnesty approvals the Obama administration issued to them in defiance of a court order.

Those who don’t return their three-year permits will have them terminated at the end of this month, the National Immigrant Justice Center, one of the advocacy groups briefed on authorities’ plan, said in a statement preparing immigrants for what could be a traumatic encounter.

The move comes as Homeland Security officials, fed up with slow-walking by illegal immigrants, are finally playing hardball after months of less forceful measures.

They’re scrambling to meet an end-of-month deadline set by Judge Andrew S. Hanen for recapturing thousands of three-year amnesties the department issued even after the court had entered an injunction halting the new amnesty program.

Unless all of the permits are recovered, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson could personally have to appear in court to explain the foul-up, Judge Hanen said in an order earlier this month.

[…] In a document filed late last week, the administration said it had recaptured fewer than 1,200 of the initial 2,100 wrongful amnesties. And, in a stunning admission, lawyers said they’d discovered another 500 amnesties they hadn’t known about before that also were sent after the Feb. 16 injunction. (read more)

facepalm-Obama“The government fully appreciates the urgency of the situation and is proceeding with expedited remediation,” the administration’s lawyers promised Judge Hanen.

The three-year permits have already been canceled in the government’s own computer systems, and have been changed to two-year authorizations, the lawyers said.

But Judge Hanen seemed miffed that the government has not yet collected all of the erroneous amnesties, saying he detected a “cavalier attitude” from the government about its bungle.

“The government has conceded that it has directly violated this court’s order in its May 7, 2015 advisory, yet, as of today, two months have passed since the advisory and it has not remediated its own violative behavior,” the judge wrote. “That is unacceptable and, as far as the Government’s attorneys are concerned, completely unprofessional.”

“Otherwise, the Court intends to utilize all available powers to compel compliance,” Judge Hanen wrote.
