Most importantly, the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” allows illegals who aren’t children to stay in the United States. In a corruption of the English language, so common with this administration, it defines a “childhood arrival” as “Was under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012.” A 30-year-old illegal alien, therefore, can enjoy the benefit of being a child in the eyes of the administration, and will get to stay in the United States as long as they meet some other conditions.
One rough condition is that they go to school. A 30-year-old illegal can defer removal if he is “currently in school, has graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, is currently enrolled in an accredited General Education Development (GED) program, has obtained a GED certificate.”
This memo is just one example of the lawless policy development pipelining straight into GOP congressional offices. In response, Big Sis has launched a campaign to capture the whistleblowers in her agency.
Those doing Napolitano’s dirty work might want to look at 5 U.S.C. 2302. Federal employees who take adverse action against whistleblowers are not allowed to be paid their salary. That means the people at DHS interrogating other DHS employees might want to reconsider the action lest their own names start pipelining to Congress.
They might want to start with the office of Representative Frank Wolf (R-Virginia). Mr. Wolf has a long history of defending whistleblowers. Even worse for Big Sis, he also serves on the committee that funds the salaries of the interrogators, and chairs an appropriations subcommittee.
