Loopholes in immigration process warrant elaboration
The AJC report on a former illegal alien, Maria Palacios, suing the state for the right to run for legislative office raises important questions. We are told Palacios, now a lobbyist against immigration enforcement, “was brought by her parents to the United States from Mexico as an infant without authorization, and she became a U.S. citizen in 2017.”
There is much room for expansion here. Apparently, Palacios benefited from the executive DACA amnesty decree from former President Obama who told the nation “Now, let’s be clear — this is not amnesty, this is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship.”
More than a thousand illegal aliens with DACA have quietly obtained U.S. citizenship though exploiting a process of “advance parole” in which the victim of borders obtains permission to leave the U.S. for a “humanitarian” reason and is then allowed to re-enter lawfully, which can put them on a path to U.S. citizenship as if they were a real immigrant.
We think readers deserve the whole story here.
