Twice-convicted drunk driver and illegal alien Ramon Mendoza Pascual, 37, went on a HUNGER STRIKE to protest being caught.The radical left and racist groups led by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have been pressuring the Regime to expand the Administrative Amnesty for illegal aliens in the United States. The radicals have succeeded in obtaining a commitment from the Regime to review deportation policies with the implicit goal of reducing deportations. The problem is that the Regime has stopped deporting any non-criminal alien from the United States.So in two stories,below, the Regime has not only confirmed this blogger`s observations, but made it clear that criminal aliens will be the only available and primary beneficiary of the expansion of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.First, I will introduce you to the next beneficiary and poster boy of the soon to be announced Administrative Amnesty For Criminal Aliens, Ramon Mendoza Pascual.

“I am not free. They put me in shackles,” said Ramon Mendoza Pascual, 37, who’s been held at the centre since September 2013. “Why? l don`t feel like a criminal. I`m not a criminal.”
The detention centre in Tacoma is one of the biggest in a nationwide network of 250 facilities that, together, are holding 34,000 people marked for deportation. It is also the crucible of a burgeoning protest campaign. Mendoza, an undocumented migrant from Mexico, has led hundreds of his fellow detainees in a series of hunger strikes that have triggered a similar protest at a centre in Texas and drawn attention to one of the most controversial links in the deportation chain.
He entered the US illegally 20 years ago to seek a better life, he said, and found it in the Pacific northwest – doing construction, buying a mobile home, marrying and raising three children, aged five, 10 and 12, all of whom are US citizens.
Last September he had a few beers and was arrested for driving under the influence. The charge was dropped – Mendoza claimed the vehicle was parked and his wife was coming to pick him up. He had been convicted of DUI in 2007, however, and police handed him to Ice, which categorised him “an illegal alien with a criminal record” and incarcerated him in Tacoma.

The Obama administration is likely to take steps in coming weeks to ease the pace of deportations for some illegal immigrants while also considering much broader changes if GOP lawmakers continue to block immigration reforms, according to several House Democrats and aides, who met with the new homeland security secretary this week.
Administration officials say that no decisions have been made by President Obama, and cautioned that there are serious legal obstacles to bypassing Congress on immigration policies.
But members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and aides who were involved in a closed-door briefing with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh C. Johnson said they think the tide is shifting in favor of some unilateral action by the administration.
Johnson told the group that he had a series of “short-term goals” he hoped to address in coming weeks and that he would focus on “longer-term” issues later, after completing a comprehensive review ordered by Obama, participants said. Changes could include narrowing the definition of who should be deported under current policies, which have ensnared many immigrants with steady jobs and young families that have been arrested for relatively minor offenses.There we have it. One story describing an illegal alien as a steadily employed and with a family:Mendoza, who was not so long ago a carpenter installing doors and windows in Seattle, has become one of the rallying points for a backlash that has rattled the White House...He entered the US illegally 20 years ago to seek a better life, he said, and found it in the Pacific northwest – doing construction, buying a mobile home, marrying and raising three children, aged five, 10 and 12, all of whom are US citizens.And the second story telling us that criminal aliens formerly employed and with family are on the table for an expanding Administrative Amnesty.
“We have an administration that has said, ‘There’s nothing I can do, there’s nothing I can do, there’s nothing I can do,’ ” said Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), an outspoken critic of the administration’s deportation policies. “Now, we’re sitting down with a homeland security secretary who’s saying, ‘I’m reviewing everything,’ and clearly he’s going to take steps.”
