Pelosi calls on Obama to halt deportations

By Washington Times (DC)

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has joined the call for President Obama to halt deportations, saying that just being in the country illegally is not enough reason for illegal immigrants to be sent home.

In remarks over the weekend to Telemundo, a Spanish-language network, Mrs. Pelosi said illegal immigrants must have notched serious criminal charges to merit deportation - contradicting federal law that says the presumption is against, not with, illegal immigrants.

"Our view of the law is that it - if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation," she said in the interview, which an immigrant-rights group posted on its website. "If somebody has broken the law, committed a felony or something, that's a different story."

She becomes the highest-ranking Democrat to call for Mr. Obama to halt deportations while Congress is trying to work out a broader deal on an immigration bill that could provide legal status, and possibly a chance at citizenship, for most illegal immigrants.

Mr. Obama is increasingly facing pressure from his left flank over deportations.

On Monday, immigrant-rights activists protested outside of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Fairfax, blocking a bus from leaving the facility for three hours. Just as police were breaking up that protest, another group began protesting outside an ICE office in Los Angeles.

Over the last two months, activists have blocked or delayed deportations in a dozen cities across the country, including in Mr. Obama's hometown of Chicago and in several locations in Arizona, which is ground zero for the immigration debate.

"Blaming Republicans can't stop the suffering in immigrant communities. But the president can," said Rosa Lozano, one of the protesters in Fairfax, in a statement issued by organizers. "With the stroke of a pen he could end his deportation quota and expand relief like he did for Dreamers."

The activists point to Mr. Obama's election-year decision to halt deportations for some young illegal immigrants - who call themselves "Dreamers" after the Dream Act bill - as a model. They say the president has the power to expand that non-deportation policy to most other illegal immigrants.

Mr. Obama has repeatedly said he doesn't have that broad a grant of authority - though before he used the power of prosecutorial discretion to let the "Dreamers" stay in the U.S., he also repeatedly denied that he could do that.

White House press secretary Jay Carney repeated that stance Monday.

"We have to enforce the law," he said. "Obviously, there is prosecutorial discretion, and that is applied. The focus is on those who've committed felonies."

In her interview with Telemundo, Mrs. Pelosi said she disputes that, saying she's appeared alongside some of those she said shouldn't have been deported.

"We have seen the personal stories. And we presented them to the administration," she said. "I'm hopeful that with the documentation that we are providing to counter what others may be saying about who's being deported, that we will see action from the president."

A spokesman for Mrs. Pelosi said her preferred option would be to pass a bill granting legal status to illegal immigrants, rather than relying on executive action. The spokesman said the California Democrat's stance on illegal presence in the country is a long-held position.

Still, immigration lawyers said her interpretation of the law is inaccurate and that those in the country without proper authorization are deemed deportable, and it's up to the individuals in question to prove they qualify for special consideration.

      So if we all break into the Pelosi mansion, eat all her food, run up her electric and gas bills and lie about the house under foot we are still presumed innocent so long as we don’t commit an act in cold blood? In case you haven’t noticed Nancy, those who would lie to you over little will lie to you over much, and those who would steal into your country to steal a little unearned freedom will steal all your freedoms when your backs are turned. Enter Obama and now Pelosi,,,,two children in adult body babies who need to be thrown out with the Bathwater of their proposed insane immigration policies of Progressivism. The very people elected to guard you backdoor now seek to enter YOU through it.

      First you crazy old cow, who’s this “our” you’re flapping your drunken gums about?

      I know it’s a difficult concept for your addled brain to encompass, but just being here is breaking the law. That might possibly be the main reason they are called illegal. Just a wild, shot in the dark guess.

      Pelosi’s quote:
      “Our view of the law is that it – if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation,” she said in the interview, which an immigrant-rights group posted on its website. “If somebody has broken the law, committed a felony or something, that’s a different story.”

      Where does California find these brain dead women? Also, how many brain dead voters are there in California to keep electing people like Feinstein and her?

      Just what does it take for a Non citizen to who enters a country illegally to get arrested.She should look at the immigrations laws of their country.Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is A FELONY, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

      I don’t think Pelosi knows that Mexico considers it a FELONY to enter their country,and For Mexico it is enough to not only lock them up FOR TWO YEARS! and deport them but if they RE-Enter their country again they are jailed for TEN YEARS!
      SO PELOSI THINK ABOUT THAT WHEN YOU ASK U.S. TO NOT DEPORT ILLEGALS BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY!

    How often has Nancy made a spectacle of herself? Too many times to count? I don’t believe that for a minute. She is just being a good, loyal Socialist, so her comments are inline with the diplomatic, socialistic and communistic values that got her elected in the first place. The area in California that she represents is so far left that it dips into the Pacific Ocean on a daily basis, so who else would they elect to represent their political and domestic philosophy? She is just doing her job to the best of her ability. The fact that she is legally insane is by side the point that is hinted at in this article. Jus’ saying ;-)

    It astounds me that a person who has sworn to up hold the Constitution of These United States could even ponder such thoughts. When she says; “Our view of the law is that it – if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation,” she said in the interview, which an immigrant-rights group posted on its website. “If somebody has broken the law, committed a felony or something, that’s a different story.” she is including terror cells, middle east people that have let their papers expire and all sorts of people who have illegally broken into this country.

But officer, I was only going 10 miles above the speed limit, not 20!

      Mexico does NOT allow foreigners into the country. Upon crossing the border, the foreigner has to show proof of his or her citizenship, then pay a fee to bring his or her body into Mexico, and pay another fee to bring his or her vehicle into Mexico. I know this is true because I went to Monterrey, Mexico in 2009 and 2012.

      Why the USA doesn’t do the same is beyond me. Instead, you see throngs of Mexicans walking across the bridges into Laredo, Juarez, McAllen, and all the border cities who never pay anything to come across. They are supposed to have a temporary visa, but many of them ignore this requirement and then overstay their visa limits.

    Pelosi is symptomatic of the idiocy infesting the congress of this country. She is some sort of alien herself as far as I am concerned since she has no conception of reality on THIS world and totally is incompetent to render any judgment on law since she advocates the breaking of them without penalty. She is aware that the majority of foreigners here now come illegally. Illegally means in violation of EXISTING and unenforced law and is a crime in and of itself. These are not undocumented aliens, they are foreign felons the moment they cross into this country illegally as their FIRST ACT on American soil and THIS government rewards them for it! She and all of her ilk need to go and if this country has any sanity remaining in it, we will vote out in a bipartisan fashion in the upcoming mid terms, EVERY INCUMBENT, REGARDLESS OF PARTY.! All of them have failed us miserably and they do NOT deserve to hold the offices they now have.
    I do not appreciate having my tax dollars go to reward those who come here, refuse to ,learn our language, assimilate into our culture, expect us to provide bilingual teachers for their children at the expense of the opportunity of our OWN CHILDREN and who send their unearned entitlement resources back to the country of origin. Neither should any American citizen; especially those who have served in defense of this nation in the military only to see their hard earned BENEFITS BEING CUT WHILE THOSE TO THESE FOREIGN FELONS ARE BEING INCREASED. Pelosi and those like her in BOTH parties are the problem and, the problem needs immediate and permanent resolution by a CONSTITUTIONALLY COMPLIANT, dutiful and obligated congress to CITIZENS not foreign felons!

    While I am not a lawyer, it appears that this congress lady is “aiding and abetting” those who are breaking the law—a very poor example to be set by a congressperson. Right now the UN is addressing the issue of world-wide “population control”. Something smells to high heaven, when an elected legislator tries to ignore that issue. I can just visualize Americans adjusting birth rates and then Pelosi letting a million or so illegals to remain in the country (with their large families) and still permit others to come. It is time for this lady to “fold her tent” and go home, and by force if necessary. On that point any elected congressperson (or judge) who fails to support the Constitution (and oaths of office), should forfeit any and all pension rights. Also, all congresspersons and judges should be required to take the very same oath of office that the president must take and if and when they fail to do adhere to their oaths, “impeachment and removal of office”, should be the name of the game.

    Hmmmmm, OK, You have a this person who said “you got to pass it to know what’s in it”, and I think we all know how that one is turning out. Who now says illegals should be basically given a free pass to be anywhere in our country. I agree with the comments that she should be required to have them set up camp in her yard and see how far that goes..just remember if they did not commit a serious crime so it is OK for them to be here. All I can say to the hair brain Nancy is just how do you justify the reduction of our military’s benefits just so you can give the LIB freebees to all these folks? That in and of itself just makes me sick! Yes, I agree it is time for you to fold whatever it is you use to shelter yourself from reality and just go home. You have fleeced the USA enough.

      You struck a sore spot with the reduction of veteran’s retirement with me. It’s a direct hit.

      There was just a Senator (a Republican) on Fox talking about how he just had to vote for the budget to keep the country from shutting down again.

      I wonder if he’s so worried about it how would he feel about cutting the retirements of Congresspersons.

This one rates right up there with “We have to pass the bill to see whats in it” This crazy female needs to get sent packing in November and locked up in the looney bin. So with reasoning like that, lets say we broke into her home, you know, cause we were hungry and cold. With her statement would she go shopping for us to make sure we had enough food and drink? Open up the guest room so we have a nice place to sleep? Let us stay there indefinitely? I would be willing to bet she would have us arrested on the spot!

    Being here illegally seems the perfect reason to me to deport these people. If that isn’t reason enough, what the heck is?

    Pelosi is one brick short of a full load when it comes to thinking.

      stormymonday2,

      One brick? Seriously??

      I doubt if this mental giant has even one brick remaining that hasn’t already collapsed in upon itself.

      Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools… And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.

      Sound like anybody you know?

    Pelosi must be an embarrassment to most of the American female population in America whether Democrat or Republican!

    This is an excerpt from Eric Shawn, a New York-based anchor and senior correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC), that sums up the woes of a hair brained scheme that dumb Nancy wants to promote:
    “Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election — and has referred the case for possible prosecution. The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation’s leaders.

    Ohio officials say that did not stop some from getting around the system.

    “I have a responsibility to uphold election law, and under both federal and state law you must be a citizen to vote,” said Husted, a Republican who has aggressively tried to investigate voter fraud cases in his state.

    Husted also found that 274 non-citizens remain on the voting rolls.

    President Obama beat Mitt Romney in Ohio by just 2 percentage points in November 2012.

    As part of Ohio’s efforts to clean up the voting rolls, election officials discovered that more than 257,000 dead people were still listed as active voters. Their names and status, Husted said, have since been removed.

    In addition, election authorities note they have drastically reduced the number of duplicate registrations, from 340,000 in 2011 to just four this past November — and that more than 370,000 Ohio voters who have moved have been contacted to update their voting information.

    “Now that we have the ability to cross-check citizenship information with Ohio’s voter rolls, I will continue to be vigilant and to push the General Assembly for additional tools to modernize our elections systems, making it easy to vote and hard to cheat,” Husted said.

    Voting advocates have long complained that some of the country’s voter fraud investigations amount to voter suppression, aimed at preventing minorities and others from voting. But supporters say the efforts only are aimed at preventing voter fraud and maintaining the integrity of the electoral process.

    The new investigation comes after election officials secured several voter fraud convictions stemming from last year’s election in Ohio, including that of one poll worker who was accused of voting six times in the November presidential election.

    Melowese Richardson, 58, is serving five years in prison after being convicted of four counts of voter fraud. Prosecutors said she repeatedly had voted in the name of her sister, who has been in a coma since 2003, and that the illegal votes Richardson cast were counted in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. She also was accused of illegally voting in November’s election in the names of other people, including her granddaughter India Richardson, who told Fox News that “it wasn’t a big deal.”

    A Cincinnati nun also pleaded guilty to illegal voting as part of the ongoing voter fraud investigation.

    The new cases of non-citizen voting are being referred to local prosecutors.”

    This was in Ohio which was lost by a small percentage. You can bet if it happened there it is happening elsewhere. Yet the Dems say the problem is not at all that big of a deal. Without enforceable borders, the lawless become the law! … you be the judge!

      Was there any question that Obama stole his last election via wholesale voter fraud?
      How else can an election district record 108% voter turnout?
      How else can an election district have 99% votes for Obama?

      Let’s not forget Obama’s main man Holder’s help, who is suing states for trying to clean up their voting rolls.

    There are many ways for a nation to crumble. Losing control of its borders and being invaded by unwanted immigrants flagrantly disregarding its laws is one of them. That’s what Is happening to us now, and rather than take an aggressive stance to secure our borders, the foolish politicians are pandering to the invaders. Congress needs to realize its duty is to the United States and its citizens–not to the illegal invaders.
