This is Why People Hate Republicans
Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) on Monday proposed legislation that would block enforcement of President Obama’s new policy of letting certain illegal immigrants request temporary relief from deportation.
Schweikert’s bill would specifically prohibit the Department of Homeland Security from allowing that relief. Schweikert said his bill would prevent Obama from “dictating” immigration law from the White House.
Last Friday, Mr. Obama announced the new policy which will allow certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria, to be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings.
The new policy will take effect immediately and Mr. Obama said, it would allow as many as 800,000 immigrants living illegally in America to remain without the threat or fear of being deported.
