Foreign-Born Spouses Get Shafted by Obama Amnesty by Decree
By Harold Hutchison
Barack Obama’s amnesty-by-decree has had the effect of keeping families apart – the opposite of what many proponents of so-called “comprehensive immigration reform” have been promising.
According to a report by the blog Hot Air, foreign-born spouses of American citizens are being forced to wait longer due to directives by the Obama Administration to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services prioritizing those who would be eligible for the so-called “DREAM Act.”
The blog also reported that corners are being cut with regards to the background checks that USCIS is supposed to be conducting. According to the report, the Obama Administration is being pressured to act to legalize more of those illegal immigrants already in the United States – a figure that is at least 11.7 million.
