Judicial Watch cautions: here comes the 'Office of Citizenship and New Americans'

← return to Water Cooler

Many are paying close attention to the 844-immigration reform bill, scanning for the the alarming factoids that could affect the nation for some time.

“Pay attention to the language in this bill. It is important,” advises Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch.

“The legislation creates a brand new bureaucratic phrase: ‘registered provisional immigrant.’ So if you’ve been paying attention to how things have unfolded to this point since President Obama took office, we have moved from the term ‘illegal alien’ to ‘undocumented worker’ to now ‘registered provisional immigrants,’ ” Mr. Fitton observes.

“Guess what term comes next. According to the bill, the name of the chief federal agency responsible for overseeing immigration policy will be changed from ‘U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ to the ‘Office of Citizenship and New Americans.’ ” he continues.

Mr. Fitton sees parallels with another massive chunk of legislation.

“Like Obamacare, the process is being perverted. The bill is released in the middle of the night, a hearing with still-secret witnesses is held less than a few days later, and a key committee vote would take place by May 15,” he observes.

“This bill grants amnesty almost immediately to most of the illegal aliens here. It also allows for amnesty for relatives of these illegal aliens.  nd it allows certain illegal aliens who have been deported to be granted amnesty. That, folks, is amnesty, plus, plus. To be clear, the bill does not require the border to be secure for this nearly instant, massive amnesty to take place,” Mr. Fitton adds.

“There’s still much to be unwrapped from this monstrous bill. This comprehensive immigration reform is to immigration as Obamacare is to health care,” he concludes.
