Deportation battle: ICE vs. Obama
Posted by Staff
National Review reports:

The Senate voted Tuesday to initiate debate on the Gang of Eight immigration bill. The process could take weeks, but supporters such as Senator Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) are predicting passage by July 4. In that time, a federal judge in Texas is expected to rule on a case that, although largely ignored by lawmakers, could have significant implications for the immigration-reform debate.

As I have previously written (here and here), a group of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents is suing the Obama administration over its deportation policy. In June 2012, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would stop deporting illegal immigrants who meet certain requirements: individuals who were brought here illegally as children, who are currently enrolled in school or are members of the military, and who have not been convicted of a serious crime. The policy mirrors the language of the DREAM Act, legislation that has failed to pass Congress on multiple occasions. But the Obama administration is behaving as if it did pass.
