At an MSNBC-hosted town hall event, President Obama requested for ICE, Border Patrol, and Homeland Security Investigations to abide by his executive amnesty plans. He said all officials in these government entities will be forced to comply with these plans, and believes Congress must pass a law reflecting his plans for them to be made permanent. In relation, Judicial Watch uncovered that the Obama administration is requiring Customs and Border Security to stop arresting drunk drivers to avoid being sued. Read more about that discovery here.
Below are quotes from President Obama, listed in the article, that highlight his intentions with his executive amnesty plans:
For example, when President Obama was asked for reassurances that people wouldn’t be deported as the legal battle over the executive amnesty plays out in the courts, he said, “Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary.” But then Obama went further: “There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security [Jeh Johnson] because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be.“
