Senate Republicans Ask Secretary Napolitano About Backdoor Amnesty

A group of Senate Republicans sent Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano a letter after learning of the DHS backdoor amnesty memo I reported on yesterday. According to Homeland Security Today:

“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.
