Certain available reports suggest that the Homeland Security Secretary of the US has strongly backed the move of the American President to prevent the deportation of several unauthorized migrants ushered-in to the country as children, and permit them to duly apply for work visas.
Talking about the development, the secretary in question reportedly observed that the immigration laws of the nation should be administered in a powerful and rational way. He added that the same are not suitably tailored to be administered recklessly, minus any thought whatsoever given to the specific circumstances of each and every case. During the month of June this year Barack Obama had declared that he was relaxing the immigration decree by executive order for several unlawful migrants ushered-in to the nation as children.
Via the change in policy, such people would be qualified to avoid extradition in case they may duly convince that they are below 30 years old, or of the same age, have been present in the country for not less than a period of 5 years, turned-up before they became 16 years old, did graduation from an American high school, or pocketed a GED, or are presently involved with studies in a school, and have a clean background. Such people may also suitably apply for a work permit which will be valid for a period of 2 years, with no restrictions whatsoever placed on it as to how many times it may eventually be renewed.
The Secretary also observed that the concerned organization has full authority to exercise judgment while coming to a decision as to which unlawful immigrants to exile from the country. He also said that the recent verdict of the Supreme Court removing a significant chunk of the strict immigration edict of the state of Arizona backs that authority.
However, the Republicans have not been too happy with the development. They have attacked the program and termed the same as backdoor reprieve which seriously thwarts the will of the American Congress. One critic was quoted as saying that though the amnesty agenda of the government is a victory for unlawful migrants, it is a big loss for the innocent Americans.
He added that on a number of occasions the involved department has been overactive to avoid the application of immigration laws even as the same continues to prove dear for the ordinary Americans when it comes to earning their means of livelihood.
He continued that he is rather apprehensive that offering the unlawful overseas people, the authority to work, in a lawful manner, inside the country, would severely affect the overall economy of the nation which already is not doing very fine. The secretary also raised a question as to how the concerned officials intend to fight the cases of fraud.
In this connection, he observed that the amnesty granted by the Obama administration also encourages such cases. He said that several unlawful migrants will wrongly say that they arrived in the country as children even as the present government would not take the essential steps to verify if their claims are really right.
