HELP SAVE MARYLAND ACTION ALERT – SUNDAY RALLY IN DC – Show Up And Make A Stand

This calculated media stunt will occur just ahead of the critical month of September when Obama speaks before the UN and delivers on his promise that America is doing its fair share with the refugees.

Obama to Waive Unlawful Presence for Certain Illegal Aliens

The Obama administration has taken yet another executive action to unilaterally rewrite our immigration laws. This time, through a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) final rule, the Obama administration announced it is significantly expanding the provisional waiver of inadmissibility for certain individuals living in the country unlawfully. (Law 360, Aug. 2, 2016) In doing so, President Obama is forgiving the unlawful presence of an individual who is otherwise eligible for a green card.

Generally, aliens who have been residing in the country illegally long term cannot simply return to the country if they leave. Immigration and Nationality Act Section 212(a)(9)(B) says that aliens who have been illegally present in the U.S. between six months and a year may not be readmitted for three years; it also says aliens who have been illegally present in the U.S. for over a year may not return for ten years. (INA § 212(a)(9)(B)(i)) Congress did grant the Executive Branch the authority to waive an individual’s unlawful presence if they have an immediate relative U.S. citizen or green card holder and the separation caused by the 3- and 10- year bars would pose “extreme hardship” to the relative. (INA § 212(a)(9)(B)(v))

What President Obama has done is take this narrow statutory authority and unilaterally expand it to all categories of visas. Now, any person living in the U.S. unlawfully and has a citizen or LPR immediate relative can apply to have the 3- and 10- year bars waived when their green card (family-based, employment, or visa lottery) becomes available. Once granted the provisional waiver, they simply leave the U.S. to claim their green card in their home country and then can immediately return to the U.S. with lawful immigration status. While still subject to the “extreme hardship” requirement, it is important to note that this term is not defined and the Obama administration is expected to take an expansive interpretation of the phrase. Indeed, the announcement accompanying the final rule said, “The provisional waiver process promotes family unity by reducing the time that eligible individuals are separated from their family members while they complete immigration processing abroad, while also improving administrative efficiency.” (81 Fed. Reg. 50244, July 29, 2016)(emphasis added)

The impact of this rule is clear. Congress enacted the 3- and 10- year bars to deter illegal immigration. By significantly expanding the provisional waiver of unlawful presence inadmissibility, the Obama administration is downplaying the severity of living in the country illegally. Now, any individual with a citizen or LPR immediate relative has the incentive to live in the U.S. unlawfully instead of remaining in their home country until their green card becomes available because they know the Obama administration (and possibly future administrations) will waive their unlawful presence.

UPDATE ON THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY TERM LIMIT PETITION – CITIZENS WORKING TOGETHER CAN SUCCEED!

UPDATE ON THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY TERM LIMIT PETITION – CITIZENS WORKING TOGETHER CAN SUCCEED!

 

Recent e-mail I received on the status of the Term Limit Petition which will revitalize the MoCo County Council and County Executive if passed this November 2016 by the voters.  The professional politicians are getting nervous!

 

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dear Concerned Voter:

 

Thank you for signing the non-partisan term limits petition for Montgomery County.   

 

We did it!  You and nearly 18,000 registered voters in Montgomery County signed the term limits petition (only 10,000 signatures were required).  The signatures were submitted on August 8, which means you’ll be able to vote on the term limits question on the November 2018 general election ballot.   When passed — and we need your vote to pass the measure — it will limit County Council members and the County Executive to serving no more than three consecutive terms, or 12 years.

 

One week from today, on Wednesday, August 24, you will have an opportunity to support term limits at a Montgomery County Charter Commission hearing. 

 

Here is information about the hearing: http://www2.montgomerycountymd.gov/mcgportalapps/Press_Detail.aspx?Item_ID=16281

 

In order to testify, you must notify the commission in advance by e-mailing them at: charterreview.commission@montgomerycountymd.gov

 

 If you can’t attend, but still want to convey your support for the term limits petition; email the commission at the same e-mail address in the previous sentence.   

 

If you don’t want to speak out publicly on the 24th, please come to the hearing and stand with your neighbors in support of term limits for the County Council and County Executive. 

 

If you want to know how you can help or need more information, let us know. 

 

Thank you,

 

Montgomery County Citizens group in support of Term Limits   sohenc@gmail.com
