In spite of a judge’s order halting Obama’s November 2014 executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, the Department of Homeland Security continues defying the judge’s order.
Less than a week after the judge ordered the Justice Department to put its lawyers through ethics training, DHS has suddenly discovered three more amnesty applications it approved against the judge’s order, blaming “human error”. Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said the employment authorization permits were re-issues of returned permits. He did not explain why it took five months to discover them.
At issue is Obama’s executive order that would have stopped deportation of what the government estimates is 11 million illegal aliens, and would grant work permits and a 3-year stay of deportation for up to 5 million people. Texas and 25 other states filed a joint lawsuit, and Judge Andrew Hanen put a freeze on the entire program, until it can be heard by the Supreme Court.
The Obama administration went ahead anyway, issuing 100,000 three-year work permits, in direct violation of Judge Hanen’s order.
Rodriguez said he has “taken steps” to revoke the three-year work permits and replace them with two-year documents, and has implemented new checks to “try to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
