Obama DumbAssity of the Day: Will Name LA RAZA Dude to Head . . . U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services???!!!!
By Debbie Schlussel
I feel like we’re living in an episode of “The Twilight Zone.” Can it really be that Barack Hussein Obama is about to name an open borders guy from Casa De Maryland–an affiliate of La Raza–to head up U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services???!!! According to the Washington Post, the answer is Si, Gringos.
Tom Perez, Maryland’s labor secretary and a former Montgomery County council member, could soon join the Obama administration, sounces tell The Post.
Immigrant advocates say the White House and the Department of Homeland Security have nearly finalized their choices to lead two major immigration agencies.
For U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, sources tell our colleague Spencer Hsu that Perez appears to be the pick. Perez, a key player on Obama’s transition, was a top official in the Justice Department under President Clinton.
For DHS assistant secretary for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, all signs point to John T. Morton, a career Justice Department official who has overseen complex immigration and terrorism cases — most recently as chief of the criminal division’s domestic security section.
Thanks to the readers at Free Republic for tipping me off that Perez is former board director for Casa de Maryland, an open borders/illegal aliens advocacy group and an affiliate of Reconquista group, La Raza.
More on Perez, via 24Ahead, from the Washington Post (see caption of picture at link) on Perez’s support for in-state tuition for illegal aliens:
Maryland’s labor secretary, Thomas E. Perez, right, joined students in Annapolis to urge approval of a bill granting in-state tuition rates to undocumented immigrants.
Let me remind you that the head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is in charge of almost all immigration benefits–citizenship, green cards, some visas, etc. Do we want a man who believes illegal aliens deserve to be here to be in charge of whether or not these lawbreakers get citizenship? Maybe Victoria’s Secret will hire Rosie O’Donnell as a lingerie model.

Wish I could disagree, Ray. Wish I could.
