A pro-border enforcement organization says the Obama administration has once again overstepped its authority by allowing illegal aliens to bring in relatives from Central America.
During a recent U.S. Senate hearing, officials from the Obama Administration confirmed that a new Central American “refugee” program allows illegal alien beneficiaries of the President’s executive order amnesty to bring in illegal aliens from Central America.
Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform or FAIR, says the administration’s standards for granting refugee status do not match what’s in the law.
“The law says you have to have a well-founded fear of persecution by your government based on a variety of immutable characteristics,” Mehlman explains.
But the current administration will bend the law, and the legal definition, he adds, “to suit whatever their political objectives are.”
Judical Watch, reporting on the changes, wrote in an April 1 story:
They’re no longer known as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), a term that evidently was offensive and not politically correct enough for the powerful open borders movement. The new arrivals will be officially known as Central American Minors (CAM) and they will be eligible for a special refugee/parole that offers a free one-way flight to the U.S. from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras
The administration’s political objectives are clear, Mehlman claims, which is to “get people in here any way the can.”
“If it was really up to the President,” he says, “we would have essentially open borders in the United States.”
