Ten employees at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are suing the Obama administration to block a new program to let many young illegal immigrants avoid deportation and get a work permit.
The suit also claims that directives from the Department of Homeland Security and its secretary, Janet Napolitano, force agents to break the law by not arresting certain illegal immigrants.

Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state and an immigration adviser to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, is representing the employees. The lawsuit was filed Thursday in federal court in Dallas.

The 22-page filing, which names Napolitano and ICE Director John Morton as defendants, contends that the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals plan violates federal law.

The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Napolitano has previously defended the plan.
The suit says the mandate “unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress.”
Kobach equated the move to give thousands of illegal immigrants a reprieve to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.
“In both instances, the Obama administration ordered federal law enforcement agents to break the law, to ignore the laws that they’re supposed to enforce, and, in the case of the ICE agents, to actually break federal laws that say you’re supposed to deport certain people,” he told Fox News.”And in each case, the Obama administration seems to be doing so for political reasons.”

    Hi!

    I agree with you 100%. He is taking everything we try so hard to work for and just handing it over to people who illegally came here. Lets face it, if he doesnt get out in November, we are screwed!

      Hey Cindy!

      I agree! Our job as Americans is to vote him out. To those who are here illegal, he is taking our rights away, your next. But if he is successful, he will remove everything you migrated here for. You will loose too if he is re-elected!

    I am so sick and tired of of Obama giving away everything we have worked so hard for. If you want to be an American, that’s fine but do it legally like everyone else did. He is trying and is successful at bringing us down to a third world country so that we are “equal “. If you haven’t seen the movie 2016, you need to see it. Take your whole family and bring friends!

      Hey Daniel and Carol!

      I have not gone to see 2016 but it is apart of my plans for this weekend. Glad you were able to see it. Is there anything you did or didn’t agree with?

    There is nothing we can do. Seems to me everything is getting pushed through like a freight train. At some point its going to crash!
