Add Republican Congressman Steven Chabot of Ohio to the list of Republicans who won’t let Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents do their job. Add him to the group of Republican Congressman who want to continue to shield illegal alien Muslim lawbreakers.
I already told you about John Boehner. Also an Ohio Republican Congressman (and, unfortunately, high-ranking GOP House leader), he put the squeeze on ICE for deporting Fatima Raziuddin, a Muslim illegal alien (here illegally for 18(!) years), to her native Pakistan.
Then, there’s Republican Congressman Fred Upton. I told you about his “private bill” (co-sponsored with Carl Levin in the Senate) to halt the deportation of illegal alien and Islamic terrorist Ibrahim Parlak.
(Unfortunately, private bills immediately stay Homeland Security from all deportation activity. It says to America, “We in Congress know better than Immigration Judges that we’re paying to do the job.”)
Now, there’s Chabot. Reader Nancy sends me this article from the Cincinnati Enquirer, about how, today, Chabot, introduced a “private bill” to shield Maha Dakar and her husband, Bassam Garadah, both Palestinians who were ORDERED DEPORTED. They sought asylum here, and they WERE DENIED. Again, they were ORDERED DEPORTED. What about that doesn’t Congressman Chabot understand?:
Chabot said today he will introduce a “private bill” on behalf of Maha Dakar, a Palestinian who is facing deportation without her family to Jordan.
Dakar’s case has drawn attention from Chabot, known for his tough stance on illegal immigration [DS: Yeah, right. This story tells us otherwise.], because she and her family entered the United States legally 10 years ago and have broken no laws while here.
BFD. Most illegal aliens entered the country legally 10 years or more ago. Mohammed Atta didn’t break any laws until that plane-flying incident, either. Maybe Congressman Chabot should have sponsored a private bill for him, too. These are distinctions without a difference. Uh, yeah, they did break the law. They are still here. That’s breaking the law, Congressman.
She and her husband, Bassam Garadah, have four young daughters who must either leave the country with Dakar or stay here with their father.
So sad, too bad.
“It’s really a sad situation, a tragic situation,” Chabot said today. “The question we should be asking ourselves is, how does it benefit this country to split this family apart?”
No, Congressman, the question you should be asking is why you are protecting lawbreakers and why they chose to have a family here, even though they knew they were here illegally.
Dakar and her husband are Palestinians but were born in Kuwait. They applied for asylum in the United States, but they were denied and both were deemed deportable.
No, they weren’t “deemed” anything. They were ORDERED to leave by an immigration judge.
Dakar has a Jordanian passport and can be sent there, but Garadah has Egyptian travel papers and is considered “stateless.” He has no country to go to.
WRONG. NOT “stateless” at all. Attention, clueless reporter: If you have Egyptian travel documents, you can go to Egypt. Not our problem that you don’t want to go there. ICE Detention and Removal Ops isn’t the Tahitian Paradise Travel Agency.
They have applied for U.S. citizenship, but it would take five to seven years for her application to be processed. Dakar is set to be deported in October.
Again, so sad, too bad. Get in line behind everyone else.
“They’re caught in a Catch-22,” Chabot said.
WRONG. They created a Catch-22. Not our prob. Deport them now.
That’s why he decided to introduce the private bill, an unusual piece of legislation intended to help an individual with a problem that threatens to cause American citizens hardship. Chabot said she qualifies because her four children are U.S. citizens.
They are not American citizens. And their kids, like those of every illegal alien with a potent penis and a vagina to go with it, are anchor babies designed to create a sob story just like this one. This isn’t anything new. Most illegal aliens have kids who were born here. Not our problem.
“We are a hard-working family,” Dakar said today. “We can be an asset to the United States.”
Uh-huh. Just like Sami Al-Arian was an asset . . . to Islamic Jihad and Al-Qaeda.
What is so special about these people? Why do they deserve to jump 10 years ahead of everyone else in line? Answers: Nothing and No Reason. And, oh yeah, they are Palestinian Muslims, so, of course, they deserve special treatment.
There is no way ICE can do its job if Detention and Removal Operations officials have Congressmen introducing private bills every other day to protect their chosen illegal alien lawbreakers.
Time for this silly and harmful practice to be reformed or ended altogether.
Deport these illegal alien lawbreakers NOW. Not “later.”
Just another chapter in the never-ending story: “Gullible Republican Congressmen and the Illegal Aliens Who Love Them.”
