National Border Patrol Council responds to Obama Administration Naming Advocate for Illegal Aliens PDF
Wednesday, 08 February 2012
February 8, 2012 – The Obama administration took its next step towards amnesty for illegal aliens by naming an advocate for illegal aliens and those concerned about immigration issues.  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the advocate will "serve as a point of contact for individuals, including those in immigration proceedings, NGOs and other community and advocacy groups, who have concerns, questions, recommendations or other issues they would like to raise."

The agency said Andrew Lorenz-Strait will be the first advocate.  They may as well title Lorenz-Strait the “Amnesty Czar” as that will be the ultimate goal of an administration used to employing smoke and mirrors in an attempt to appear tough on immigration.

ICE has already abandoned its responsibility to deport illegal aliens when Director John Morton issued a memorandum stating that ICE would be employing “prosecutorial discretion” by dropping cases where illegal aliens had no significant criminal history.  Another slap in the face to Border Patrol agents, Deportation officers and ICE agents who have risked their safety, day after day to arrest those who violated the laws of the United States.  These illegal aliens are released in the U.S. without any prosecution for their crimes, and are now given an advocate who will help them continue their law-defying activities.

The Obama administration’s actions lend legitimacy to the actions of illegal aliens while making a mockery of the laws of the United States.  What is next?  Will drug dealers band together decrying their prosecutions in one voice?  Will these unlicensed pharmacists be given an advocate and the DEA ordered to release these criminals?

Amnesty is not the answer to the immigration problems of the United States and should not be an option.  Enforcement actions already allowed in Title 8 of the U.S. Code need to be employed against those who hire illegal aliens.  Deny the incentive to illegally work in this country and the immigration problem as it exists today will dramatically change.

Instead of doing what is right the Obama administration is showing that it is willing to pander to special interest groups for purely political reasons.  The squeaky wheel clamoring for reduced enforcement of the immigration laws is truly getting the grease by this action.
