I do not know the rule of ethics pertaining to contacting a District Judge, and I have no wish to even attempt to influence any decision on any case before you. The point of this communiqué is to tell you that American citizen-patriots are proud of you. Your apparent sense of fairness and of the laws of our land is uncommon today in our judicial system with respect to the agenda of government, backed by so much power. We, the People, want you to know that we support you. Truly, Missouri, American Citizen ” (Contact information is: District Judge Reed O’Connor, 1100 Commerce Street, Room 1520, Dallas, Texas 75242-1003, Courtroom: 15th Floor, Chambers: 214-753-2650 / Fax: 214-753-2657, Courtroom Deputy: Tyler Crowley- 214-753-2650, Court Reporter: Denver Roden – 214-753-2298) JM}

A federal judge has a message for President Obama: Stop bypassing Congress on immigration.

Obama issued a directive in June 2012 halting the deportation of many
young illegal aliens after Congress refused to pass the DREAM Act,
which would have provided conditional permanent residency to young
illegals.

A federal judge in Dallas is now threatening to reverse that directive.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor said Tuesday that he will likely
rule in favor of a lawsuit seeking to overturn the new policy. He has
asked both sides to file additional arguments by May 6.

The administration’s policy directs U.S. Immigration and Customs, or
ICE, agents to defer deportation for illegal aliens under 30 who entered
the country before the age of 16, are in school or have a high school
diploma, haven’t been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor or
multiple misdemeanors and are not a threat to public safety or national
security.

The ICE agent union challenged the policy, arguing that the Obama
administration is disciplining agents who enforce federal immigration
law.

The president of that union, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, also said the policy is being abused.

In his April 8 testimony, Christopher L. Crane said, “Officers are
applying the directive to people detained in jails, not kids in school.”

He told the court, “It is now the story in the jails for aliens to use to avoid arrest and deportation.”

Those aliens appear to be taking advantage of the policy with great success. National Review
found, “Since the policy took effect in August 2012, the Obama
administration has approved 268,361 applications for ‘deferred action’
status, and denied just 1,377 – an approval rate of 99.5 percent.”

While critics argue the policy is ineffective in securing the border,
Judge O’Connor indicated it’s also illegal for the Obama administration
to tell immigration agents not to arrest an illegal alien who is a low
priority.

“The court finds that DHS (Department of Homeland Security) does not
have discretion to refuse to initiate removal proceedings,” Judge O’Connor wrote.

O’Connor issued a court order stating that Congress, not the
president, sets priorities for arresting illegal aliens and that the law
requires them to face deportation.

A recent analysis by Politico based on U.S. Census and Pew Research
Center estimates of illegal alien populations by state brings into
question the Democrats’ motivation for what they call comprehensive
immigration reform – also dubbed “amnesty” by critics.

After crunching the numbers, Politico said the immigration proposal
now in Congress would give Democrats a decisive advantage at the polls
for a generation or more.

It would happen by “pumping as many as 11 million new Hispanic voters
into the electorate a decade from now in ways that, if current trends
hold, would produce an electoral bonanza for Democrats and cripple
Republican prospects in many states they now win easily.”

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or
ALIPAC, told WND the legislation would “completely wipe out the
center-right group of people that have governed America for over 200
years. And it would replace true conservatives with illegal immigrants
willing to vote for anyone willing to give them more power and control.”

Gheen believes the DHS policy is in response to a drop in illegal
immigration after the economy began plummeting into recession in 2008
and states began cracking down on illegal immigration.

“If the ICE agents can win their case and we can stop amnesty, the
American public may get one more shot at this in the 2014 election, in
which case we could restore the reversal of illegal immigration,” he
said.

Gheen said ALIPAC may file a friend-of-the-court brief to help the ICE agents’ union.

“To us its very clear that the U.S. Constitution says immigration is
the purview of the U.S. Congress. And the fact that Obama’s memo, or
decree, so perfectly emulates failed legislation reinforces our belief
this should have been done legislatively, it if were done at all.”

Gheen added, “[W]e have contended for years, and accurately so, that
those very powerful groups behind the deadly and costly illegal
immigrant invasion of the United States are not concerned about
democracy; they’re all about authoritarian governance. It’s just part of
what it’s going to be like if they ever get their group of 20 million
illegal immigrants on board as a new voting bloc.”

He said those “powerful groups” include Fox News.

“I know that Fox News is pushing amnesty. They’ve had very few
anti-amnesty people on at all, except for Ann Coulter and Michelle
Malkin. All of their main hosts, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, have
come out in support of amnesty,” he added.

Gheen also cited what he called bogus immigration polls by Fox News.

“This time, the amnesty battle is different because two high-profile
groups have run designer polls and paid for the results, with Fox News
and the Associated Press trying to convince Americans that if they’re
against amnesty they are in the minority. It is a very powerful and
Orwellian thing that we have to deal with,” Gheen contended.

He added, “We have a whole list of polls showing our position of
enforcement rather than amnesty are supported by a supermajority of
Americans, and we’ve been collecting those polls for eight years at
Alipac.us.”

The ALIPAC
website currently features a Reuters poll released Tuesday showing
“more than half of U.S. citizens believe that most or all of the
country’s 11 million illegal immigrants should be deported.”
