The Obama administration’s decision to allow foreign born children brought unlawfully to the United States by their parents to avoid deportation and to work is viewed by many Americans as a compassionate act deserving of support.
However, the administration’s action does nothing to protect large numbers of innocent Utah and other American children who have been victimized by many of the same illegal aliens and their families who will benefit from the the administration’s action.
In the name of compassion, the administration and those who support its actions have consistently allowed illegal aliens to steal the identities of American children without threat of arrest, deportation, or incarceration.
As the administration implements its prosecutorial discretion policy, it will set up an amnesty program that allows adult, illegal aliens who have committed serious job-related felonies including Social Security fraud, perjury on I-9 forms and identity theft under state laws to get quasi-legal status and work permits.
The administration will also ensure that the job-related crimes committed by illegal aliens who were brought to the United States by their parents will never be revealed and that they will never be prosecuted for crimes committed. And it will guarantee that the Utah kids who are victims of these crimes will never learn who victimized them.
The administration will also ensure that Utahns who aided and abetted illegal aliens in their job-related criminal activities or who themselves violated U.S. immigration, employment, and payroll tax laws by hiring illegal aliens are granted amnesty as well.
Under the administration’s program, Utah children who graduate from high school may be forced to compete for college admissions and jobs with some of the same illegal aliens who stole their identities and many illegal aliens will have an advantage over them because of diversity and affirmative action programs.
Innocent Utah children who are victims of illegal alien identity theft will be denied jobs when they fail background checks because illegal aliens have destroyed their credit, left them with unpaid tax liabilities for wages earned on their Social Security numbers, and saddled them with arrest records that are linked to their Social Security numbers.
And while young Utahns who are the victims of illegal alien identity theft try to recover their good names, the illegal aliens who victimized them will be living the American dream built on the misery of their victims.
Thus, the Obama administration’s DREAM decree combines compassion for foreign born adults who were once the innocent children of illegal aliens with the abuse of truly innocent Utah and other American born children.
