The Washington Times reports that a nine-page memo issued Friday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said agents should use “prosecutorial discretion” to try to avoid detaining parents and, if parents are detained, agents should make sure they have the ability to visit with their children or participate in family court proceedings.

“President Obama has once again abused his authority and unilaterally refused to enforce our current immigration laws by directing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to stop removing broad categories of unlawful immigrants,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican.

Goodlatte chairs the committee which is in charge of many of the immigration bills the House could consider this year and who is working on a legalization bill for young illegal immigrants, said the Obama administration’s move “poisons the debate” and shows that the president is trying to “politicize the issue” rather than work for a compromise bill.

The memo is the latest in a series of directives issued by ICE and by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano that try to lay out priorities for whom the government will detain and try to deport.

    Evaluate the devious actions within the Obama Administrations?

    Report Says IRS Undermines SSA’s Fight against Illegal Aliens’ Felonious Use of Social Security Numbers

    In a CNSNew report that the Social Security Administration’s Inspector General said his agency’s efforts to stop illegal aliens from using fraudulent or stolen Social Security Numbers has been “hindered” by the Internal Revenue Service’s failure to penalize employers who file W-2s on which the Social Security Number and name do not match SSA records.

    The report found that 20 percent of the Social Security Numbers used were not real – e.g., 42,164 had numbers that were all zeros. The remaining 80 percent belonged to citizens or legal residents. The IG found that, “About 380,000 of these belonged to young children, and about 258,000 belonged to deceased individuals.” The most heinous criminal enterprise is procuring young children and infants SS numbers, which is absolutely disgusting.

    The misuse of a Social Security Number can be a felony. According to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, “The Social Security Act provides that whoever, with the intent to deceive, falsely represents a number to be his or her SSN when, in fact, that number was not assigned to that person, shall be guilty of a felony and subject to a fine.”

    The report also said SSA staff thought employers were unafraid to file bad W-2s because they knew noone would not pursue them. “SSA staff told us employers hired unauthorized workers because nothing prevented them from doing so. That is, employers know SSA had no legal authority to levy fines and penalties, and they were not concerned about potential IRS sanctions,” the report said. “SSA staff believed applying penalties would deter SSN misuse. Furthermore, SSA senior staff believed the Agency could provide the IRS with sufficient evidence to show an employer knew or should have known its employees’ SSNs were incorrect. For example, a reasonable person should recognize that hundreds of workers could not have the same or consecutively numbered SSNs.”
    Some employers admitted to the IG they hired illegal aliens. “Several of the employers and industry associations we contacted acknowledged that unauthorized non-citizens contributed to SSN misuse,” said the report. “For example, one employer told us his and many restaurants would close if they did not hire unauthorized non-citizens.”

    The report also focused on problems that prevented the SSA from fighting SSN misuse. In addition to the IRS’ failure to impose penalties, the report cited employers’ resistance to using E-Verify and a provision in the Internal Revenue Code that prevents the SSA from sharing no-match information with the Department of Homeland Security.

    So the question to the Obama Administration is why these people are held accountable for this serious violation? Not only these criminals stealing Social Security Numbers, but a larger majority are from foreign countries and of already committed a crime by illegally crossing the borders, but lied to agents at airline terminals that they were only tourist or others and “Overstaying“ their visas.

    Face facts that agencies of the Obama government are using undermining laws already in the Federal Register and that includes pandering to millions of illegal aliens. The Obama administration issued a new policy last Friday that directs ICE Agents to avoid arresting and deporting illegal aliens with minor children, the Washington Times reports. It extends amnesty-in-place protection to yet another category of illegal aliens.

    The ICE policy, known as the “Family Interest Directive,” tells Agents to use “prosecutorial discretion” to try to avoid detaining illegal-alien parents. Field Operations Directors “shall continue to weigh whether an exercise of prosecutorial discretion may be warranted for a given alien and shall consider all relevant factors in this determination, including whether the alien is a parent or legal guardian of a USC (citizen) or LPR (legal permanent resident) minor, or is a primary caretaker of a minor.”


    It is time that all U.S. citizens and legal immigrants should be issued a high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security card who want jobs, to vote and stop people becoming victims of credit fraud. Your private data would be stored only on the card; no government database would house everyone’s information. The mandatory card would not contain any private information, medical information or even a tracking device. The card would be a high-tech version of the Social Security card that citizens already have, instead of the antiquated piece of card we have now. Potential employers would be responsible for swiping the cards through a machine to confirm a person’s identity and immigration status; also be used to recognize a U.S. citizen to vote and would also identify credit thieves; the main identifiers would certainly be photograph, fingerprint or even a retinal scan.
