“Several of us have written to you previously about a USCIS memorandum entitled ‘Administrative Alternatives to Comprehensive Immigration Reform,’” the senators wrote. “We now understand that an additional memorandum, which laid out some of the same proposals for granting immigration benefits to illegal immigrants… and which contained extensive discussions of the political considerations for such actions, was prepared at DHS headquarters for your review earlier this year.”
The senators are more skeptical of Napolitano’s claim that the earlier USCIS memo was just nonbinding internal deliberations. “Your assurances do little to assuage our concerns about repeated references in the memoranda to find other ways, on an administrative level, to make most illegal immigrants in the country legal,” the lawmakers wrote. The signers include Sens. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (SC), John Cornyn (Texas), and Tom Coburn (Okla.), all Republicans on the Judiciary Committee.
On top of all this, there was yet another draft memo advising Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers not to detain illegal immigrants under certain circumstances. “Whether or not the proposals … have been officially implemented, it is increasingly clear that this Administration is following the spirit of these proposals by dramatically narrowing its efforts to remove whole classes of illegal immigrants,” the senators wrote.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
