Immigration Officials Release New Information on Deferred Action

By EGP News

Immigration officials today, Aug. 3, released updated information for the first time since June 15 on the deferred action under the Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children directive. The announcement came in preparation for the Aug. 15 implementation date.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano on July 15 announced that some immigrants, who came to the US as children and met other requirements, could be eligible to receive deferred action for being in the country illegally. The announcement garnered applauds from undocumented immigrants and their supporters who see it as a path to legal residency, work permits and driver’s licenses in California.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is finalizing the details and is scheduled to make all forms, instructions and additional information available on Aug. 15, according to a press release. At that time, USCIS will begin to accept applications online.

Today’s announcement indicated the following:

–Requestors – those in removal proceedings, those with final orders, and those who have never been in removal proceedings – will be able to affirmatively request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals with USCIS.

–Requestors will use a form developed for this specific purpose.

–Requestors will mail their deferred action request together with an application for an employment authorization document and all applicable fees to the USCIS lockbox.

–All requestors must provide biometrics and undergo background checks.

–Fee waivers cannot be requested for the application for employment authorization and biometric collection. However, fee exemptions will be available in limited circumstances.

–The four USCIS Service Centers will review requests.

More information will be available on Aug. 15 at Requests submitted before August 15, 2012 will be rejected.

Individuals are urged to be cautious of immigration scams.

    The new Guidelines specify that the applicant must be ‘illegal/ undocumented’ to qualify for the process. What about still legal youngsters who meet all other requirements? Are they not eligible for work permit, when the illegals are eligible. The legals must be allowed to apply for work permits alone, skipping the first step of non-deportation part.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    Citizens of the Republic, never Give Up. Never submit.

    It is time to join the resistance—THE TEA PARTY. Obama is building his empire on the tireless backs of the American people! Obama, “America’s President” will stop at nothing to execute his plan of creating a socialist nation, grabbing your guns, your money and your freedoms! Families are suffocating under the weight of the failed policies of the Obama government. Unemployment is sky-high—over 8% for 40 straight months. Jobs are disappearing. People have given up looking for employment. Yet, with all this bad news “America’s President” demands even more taxes, while given free passes to illegal aliens. To worsen an unfavorable state of affairs Obama’s Liberal Progressives want to grab your guns again, too! This adds up to one thing: ATTACKING YOUR LIBERTIES! Obama will stop at nothing to carry out his sinister agenda. See for yourself: Obama regime seems to demanding our guns that we need for our protection, also our wallets and liberties.

    Obama is becoming as any potentate, found in Middle Eastern countries or in South America. He seems to be under the impression that American people will quietly surrender this administration intrusion, sit by silently and watch fellow citizens as Marico County Sheriff Joe Arpiao verbally assassinated because he enforced the Arizona state law, in name of the greater good for the greatest number. If from the beginning of the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli immigration bill, the laws towards dishonest business owners, a true enforced fence, and the private prison facilities would unlikely exist as they do now. BUT WE HAVE BEEN SILENTLY INVADED, BY CRIMINALS OF EVERY NATURE AND WE MUST REMOVE THEM ALL? BREAKING IMMIGRATION LAWS DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN AWARD; PARENTS WHO BROUGHT THEIR CHILDREN HERE CAN STILL BE ARRESTED AND DEPORTED?

    America’s oh-so-inept Commander in Chief will use any method to augment the tax load on the American people. His goal: the redistribution of…
