Surprise: 20% of Applicants for Obama’s “Deferred Action” Protection are Fraudulent

Posted by on Dec 03, 2014 at 8:21 am

In a surprise development, all of them have been registered to vote Democrat.

One in five applications by young undocumented immigrants applying for President Obama’s “deferred action” protection has been fraudulent, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said Tuesday.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) provided no details during a congressional hearing, where Obama’s expansion of his 2012 protective order was under scrutiny.

But an aide said later that the figure had been provided by US Customs officials at a closed briefing.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson didn’t dispute the numbers.

“Fraudulent applications have the potential to undermine the whole process,” Johnson said. “I want to be sure that we look at best practices to avoid . . . misuse of the program.”

That will take some doing, since the executive order Obama signed last month is expected to cover hundreds of thousands of immigrants who came here illegally as kids before 2010.

More than 700,000 have qualified so far.

None of this should come as a surprise considering the lawlessness of this administration.

    Seriously did no one see this coming (I’m looking at you Republican leadership). Fraud will be rampant in any amnesty plan because of the nature of __undocumented__ aliens. Please submit a fake utility bill, two forged payroll statements and three false affidavits with your application. Actually auditing 100,000 of the potential applications still give fraudsters very good odds of 99%. Given the huge value of legalization versus the miniscule real cost (simple rejection) of getting caught, fraud on a massive scale is inevitable.
    Better still is if the new documents permit re-entry into the USA. Then potential amnesty applicants anywhere in the world who never stepped foot in the US can apply from the comfort of their own homes avoiding the cost of moving until acceptance. Worst case is rejection (no cost) or the remote chance of later deportation (minimal cost) leaving them no worse off.

    FRAUD is the new password . . . It gets you in the White House, federal civil service, presidential appointments, massive congressional funding, federal judicial appointments, and almost every federal policy on and off the books.

    America needs a massive purge throughout the federal government – starting with the fraud in the White House. Don’t stop there. The SCOTUS and rest of the federal judiciary is saturated with morally corrupt political appointees who should never be on the bench. The corruption is more intense than in the US Department of Justice. Even the daunted FBI is now paralyzed through directives from Holder and his subordinates that freeze investigations and law enforcement dialogue.

    We are now living in a dictatorship.
