Two stories crossed my desk in the last 24 hours displaying the exemplary work being done by Judicial Watch to get the word out about the Obama Administration’s shameful activities involving immigration. I sure would like to get them to look into the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (beyond this great find on the cost to US taxpayers of the unaccompanied minors).
Please see the two stories that got my attention today (sorry I don’t have time these days to post more).
The first is a press release from JW on the unaccompanied alien children.
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that on September 9, 2014, it received documents from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that the Obama administration paid Baptist Children and Family Services (BCFS) $182,129,786 to provide “basic shelter care” to 2,400 “unaccompanied alien children” (UAC) for four months in 2014. The BCFS budget included charges for $104,215,608 for UACs at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and an additional $77,914,178 for UACs at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
The other news, thanks to Judicial Watch, is this story at World Net Daily. Where is the Obama Executive Order on granting amnesty?
NEW YORK – Did President Obama just set up Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to be a candidate for impeachment instead of himself if conservatives convince the Republican majorities in the House and the Senate that his “executive actions” on immigration are unconstitutional?
The inquiry begins with the question: Where are the executive orders Obama supposedly signed to permit up to 5 million parents of young illegal aliens to remain in the United States for three years?
The White House appears to have engaged in administrative sleight of hand, changing U.S. immigration law not by executive order but by a memorandum “exercising prosecutorial discretion” Johnson signed the day of Obama’s Nov. 20 nationwide address that so far has not been filed in the Federal Register.
Tom Fitton, president of Washington-based watchdog institution Judicial Watch, told WND in an interview the legal status of Johnson’s memo is a serious constitutional question that deserves to be adjudicated.
By the way, since it’s the end of the year, consider donating a few bucks to Judicial Watch because they really are looking out for your wallet.
