Another Expansion Of The Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty: Previously Deported Illegals
The Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty is expanding again. Previously John Morton, former head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), stated that the priorities of the Regime were criminal aliens, terrorists, and those previously deported.
However, that has changed. Now the previously deported aliens who illegally re-enter the United States are free to remain.

Oscar Campos received an unexpected Christmas gift from the Obama administration on Monday afternoon.
He was eating lunch with the other inmates at the Elizabeth Detention Contract Facility, a jail for undocumented immigrants near Newark, N.J., when an officer approached him and said, "You’re free to go."
And so the three-week saga of his arrest and detention ended as abruptly and mysteriously as it began.
Campos, a native of Mexico who had lived a quiet life in the U.S. for more than two decades, was arrested earlier this month by federal immigration officers. They brought him to the Elizabeth lockup, which holds about 300 immigrant detainees, some of the hundreds of thousands of undocumented people the U.S. government detains each year while deciding whether to deport them.
And his family is confused as to why he is being held for deportation:
Campos's family was worried, and confused. He had always paid his taxes and followed every law except the one that said he wasn't supposed to be here. He had built up a landscaping business from nothing and had raised three American-born children. His oldest child, Oscar Jr., is a college student majoring in criminal justice who hopes to join the New Jersey state police.
Now, it is obvious that the family is not confused.
Campos (presumably Mexican, but this applies to everyone from Latin America) undoubtedly knows that coming to the United States illegally may result in an arrest and deportation. It is not as if one can just waltz over the border to come to the United States to live. A visitor's visa must be fraudulently obtained, a smuggler hired to take you across hidden in a compartment in a vehicle crossing at a Port-of-Entry, or a coyote hired to guide one over the border to avoid the U.S. Border Patrol.
It is not as if Mexicans don't know what they are doing is illegal. But for some reason Knafo, probably an immigrant himself, wants the reader to think that everyone is surprised and shocked that America might enforce its immigration laws. Of course given the Obama Regime, one may question that, but even the Regime claims it enforces the law, especially against prior deportees. Clearly the editors at HuffPo think their readership is incredibly naive, to say the least, or just very stupid, which is more likely.
But then we get this:
The one blemish on Campos's record was an outstanding order of deportation. Back in 1995, immigration authorities caught him trying to re-enter the U.S. after a visit to his parents in Mexico and sent him back across the border. After several months, he slipped back into the U.S.
Campos has been previously deported. And his family is surprised that he was arrested and deported? Even after being arrested and deported before, they are surprised. These must be very low IQ illegal immigrants.
They certainly don't learn from experience. Or perhaps they are just playing a part in the lies that the cultural Marxists at HuffPo are publishing? Most likely.
But it gets worse: for years ICE knew he was illegal, as was his wife, but she got the official Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty:

But before we get to the details, let us first address Knafo's lies. The first is in the title, "law abiding immigrants." Of course, they are not immigrants, but illegal aliens. Second, they are by definition, not law abiding.
Then we get this whopper:
Between 2005 and 2012, the rate of deportations doubled, and although it declined in the last year for the first time during his tenure, Obama has already overseen nearly 2 million deportations, far outpacing any other president in U.S. history.
In fact, the Obama Regime has deported fewer illegal aliens than James Earl Carter III.
But back to our illegal aliens and previous deportee, Senor Campos:
Campos is there in part because of an uncharacteristic risk that he took on the morning of Dec. 3. He was driving his wife to a routine visit with immigration authorities, as he did every month. As far as he knew, the authorities were either unaware or unconcerned that he’d returned to the country after being deported nearly two decades ago, but they were aware of his wife, Humberta, who had also reentered the U.S. illegally after being deported, and were allowing her to stay in the country as long as she checked in with them on a monthly basis.
On most of those trips, Campos parked at the back end of the lot, as far as possible from the office and the agents inside. But on that particular morning he was running late, so he drove right up to the entrance to the building, where anyone could see him.
So, a wife that is here illegally and he knew he was here illegally, and took care to hide from La Migra when he took his wife to the office, but Knafo and Campos expect us to believe that he was surprised and confused that he was arrested? Clearly Knafo thinks his readers are stupid. But then this is all part of the program of electing a new people. Any lie is good to further then ends of cultural Marxism.
