Team Obama To Allow Immigrants With “Limited Terrorism Ties”

Your government at work

(Daily Caller) The Obama administration has issued new exemptions to a law that bars certain asylum-seekers and refugees who provided “limited material support” to terrorists who are believed to pose no threat from the U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department published the new exemptions Wednesday in the Federal Register to narrow a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act excluding refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor, to terrorists.

“These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or under significant pressure,” a DHS official explained to The Daily Caller.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry signed the exemptions.

Fantastic! The Obama admin. is going to allow people with tiny terrorism ties in to the country. What could possibly go wrong? Yet, the Obama admin. is trying to deport German’s who came to the US seeking asylum so that they could home-school their children.

There is also a consideration as to whether the Obama admin. has the authority to make these changes to the law. Not that The Law ever stopped Obama before. And then there’s this

And while the changes will affect those seeking protection in the short term, the manner in which the Obama administration changed the law will not be lost on Republican skeptics of immigration reform in the long term.

“This glaring end-run around Congress underscores that immigration reform is doomed to failure,” a Senate GOP aide told TheDC.

If Team O wants to unilaterally change immigration law, especially in terms of allowing people, on a cases by case basis (supposedly), with ties to terrorism, why should the GOP trust him on any new immigration legislation?

    Don’t worry, the new immigrants with limited terrorism ties only want to cut your head off to a limited extent.

    The number of beheaded infidels will be limited in number. there’s that at least.

    I totally blame the Congress, and the GOP, for this fiasco. No one is holding this lawless administration accountable. It actually does surprise me that nothing is being done about the lawbreaking and shredding of the constitutional limitations by this administration.

    The GOP are just sheer cowards.
    The Socialists are just sheer political.

    Didn’t the Boston bombers have limited terrorist connections?

    Nah, they were just good quiet kids influenced by violent video games.

    It makes perfect sense. Obama only had limited ties to a terrorist named Bill Ayers.

    Enjoy the perspectives of Pirates Cove.

    Appeal to you on protocols. Please say “Obama,” not euphemisms like “the Administration,” or “the White House.” It’s him, personally, the nexus of all the abuse and coercion. Alinsky him back twice as hard.

    For me, there is a difference in the usage. “Obama The Socialist Marxist wanna-be president” is used when we speak solely of him.
    “The Administration” is used when speaking of NObama and all of his hired guns and PR butt suckers (dang it, I typed “s” when I meant another key).
    “the White House” is used when talking about TotalLoserObama and his mouthpieces that slime along behind him who completely believe in hiding the truth, lies, and hiring leftist media hags.

    hockeydad; Didn’t the Boston bombers have limited terrorist connections?

    They may have, but they immigrated before this policy was proposed. In fact, they entered the US in 2002 and were missed by our security apparatus for a decade.

    Perhaps if Mr. Bush’s NSA had been more aggressive they would have caught the Tsarnaev’s earlier.

    Ummm….no.

    However, we do know that the the FBI and the CIA both refused to pass on warnings on the brothers to the Boston PD in 2011.

    If anything, the security of Boston was abandoned by the CIA and FBI under Obama.
