No Blankets for Illegals?

Well, THAT'S a relief.

Or, it WOULD be, IF it were true.

DHS (Department of Homeland Security) has announced that "blanket amnesty" is not being considered.  However, what IS being considered (assuming that it's not already in the works):
The concern is that DHS, in a bid to bypass Congress, would extend what is known as deferred action or parole -- actions usually taken on a case-by-case basis -- to millions of illegal immigrants at once. 
The department statement, however, did not address the possibility of giving a selective reprieve to the segment of the population holding expired visas -- as opposed to those who crossed illegally. This is something that a former Bush administration official told FoxNews.com could be an option. 
But the statement said the reprieves would not be drastically expanded. The department, while affirming its authority to grant the extensions "on the merits of cases," said they are applied on a "case-by-case" basis. 
"DHS does not grant deferred action without a review of relevant facts," the statement said. "To be clear, DHS will not grant deferred action to the nation's entire illegal immigrant population." 
So, we're supposed to be excited that the DHS won't give a stay to EVERY illegal, just the ones that meet its case standards.

Which would be - what?  A promise to register Democratic for the next election?

I know, I know - there has NEVER been a proven case of illegal voting.

Except that there has.
One of the most extensively documented cases of illegal voting was in California in 1996. Loretta Sanchez, a Democrat, defeated Republican incumbent Robert Dornan by 984 votes. Dornan called for an investigation of alleged illegal voting by noncitizens. According to Congressional Quarterly, a Washington, DC newspaper that focuses on developments in Congress, "Task force Chairman [U.S. Representative] Vernon J. Ehlers, R-Mich., said investigators had found concrete evidence of 748 illegal votes by noncitizens, not enough to throw Sanchez's victory into doubt."
That's noncitizen voting, not all invalid voting.  If you added in that, I think it's clear that Dornan was robbed.

Guys, these are the crimes that ACORN was proven guilty of, back in 2000 and 2004.  If we don't hold the line, we may never again have a President that is elected by the people, for the people, and of the people.
