Gov’t to Allow Another Group of Immigrants to Stay

Alicia A. Caldwell, Big Story, November 27, 2013

Some immigrants who have stayed in the United States longer than they were allowed can soon apply to keep living in the U.S. under another immigration policy change quietly authorized by the Obama administration.

According to a Nov. 14 policy memorandum from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, some immigrants from 37 Visa Waiver Program countries who are immediate relatives of U.S. citizens may be allowed to stay.

People from visa waiver countries don’t have to get a visa before coming to the U.S., but they can only stay for up to 90 days. The program covers mostly European countries.

The new policy was issued in mid-November, a day before the administration announced plans to let some immigrant parents, children and spouses of U.S. military personnel stay in the United States.

    If one of the parents is an American citizen then they should be allowed to stay ,otherwise throw them out.

    Negro soldiers, white Euro wives. It’s an old story. If Obama authorized it, you can bet that Negros benefit some way.

  • Spartacus

    This is just to move attention from the mud flood. “Look, we’re letting Whites in too. “

    Most of those “Europeans” will not be White but from Turkey or Muslim Pakistanis, etc..

    • Chip Carver

      You’re likely right. And a large percentage will be relatives of The Usual Suspects – who are already allowed to claim “refugee” status no matter where they come from anyway. And those “refugees” always get first dibs, and are counted against the total number of Europeans allowed to move to the US.

      Europeans my foot. This will be used to haul in more “non-White” Whites, like the “Whites” we see on the FBI Most Wanted lists; Arabs, Salvadorans, Columbians, along with Turks, Pakistanis, and of course as noted by bigone4u, those idiotic White European women who marry a Black American “soldier”.

      You can rest assured that most of those “Europeans” who are allowed to walk to the front of the line for green cards and citizenship in the US will also walk to the front of the line for jobs, welfare, admission to the better universities (where they will not be allowed to flunk, regardless of their performance), and scholarships. How long are white people going to tolerate (and often approve of) this discrimination against white Americans? Maybe until the whole system simply breaks down to anarchy in the streets.

    You can bet they aren’t white Euro’s, but a bunch of 3rd worlders who went through Europ with the intentions of using that paperwork to get to America.

  • Guest X

    Eastern Europeans aren’t on the waiver list.

    The time has come for comprehensive immigration reform.

    Comprehensive immigration reform will make the economy more fair and equitable, help clean and preserve our environment, bolster Social Security and Medicare, aid the cause of reproductive rights and LGBT rights, drive a stake through the heart of bigotry and discrimination, guarantee social justice for all, and make America more vibrant and diverse.

    Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!

      If this is sarcasm, it is heavily camouflaged. It sounds very sincere, and very silly.

      • ShermanTMcCoy

        Pretty sure it’s sarcasm.

        • Marc Zuckurburg

          I have to apologize for my mistake.

          I forgot this is is a conservative site. What I said above is the spiel I use when I post on liberal websites. Yes, sometimes I accidentally post the conservative spiel on liberal websites. I must be having a junior senior moment.

          So here’s what I really meant to say:

          We need comprehensive immigration reform.

          Comprehensive immigration reform will raise wages and salaries, strengthen national security, prevent terrorism, enhance our domestic crime-fighting ability, ensure that we continue to encourage the best and brightest to partake of the American dream, enhance our competitiveness and our ability to innovate, and make America more prosperous.

          Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!

          • Greg_Deane

            Much better balanced. The right sort of immigration can indeed be a boon. But the number of desirable migrants is dwindling all around the world, while the other kind is growing at an exponential rate.

            Yes, I believe amren is a conservative site.

          • mobilebay

            A bit redundant, Marc. Does “comprehensive immigration” include all the rocket scientists breaking into our county?

        • Greg_Deane

          Let’s hope so!

  • jane johnson

    Speaking of which, where do y’all suppose the latest bunch of Haitian boat people will end up? We NEED more Rachel Jeantels, don’t we? I don’t get it. A bunch of blacks risking their lives to leave a black-run country in hopes of making it to the racist USA.

  • ms_anthro

    “Europeans”…

  • Ella

    If they are White Europeans, you’re looking at a whopping <5% of total illegal immigrants. This is your fair and equal Libtard gift to disclaim any racial biases.

  • Bossman

    Such people already don’t have to wait too long to join their immediate relatives so this is meaningless. All it means is instead of waiting six months for someone to join their future spouse, he or she can do the waiting while in the country.

  • Bill

    Considering they are calling all kinds of bantus, muslims, and asians “europeans” these days, I’m betting Gov’s intent is NOT allowing white russians, poles, germans etc in. It’s just another way to bring in the new electorate…..blacks, muslims, and east and west asians from another direction and source.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    So, this quietly authorized decree passed through both houses of Congress with no problem? /sarc

  • Greg_Deane

    I thought I recognised the name, Anon. So the sarcasm was in the opposite direction. Most astute of you, and obtuse of me.
