Agency Plans for Visa Push by Residents Made Legal
By JULIA PRESTON

Although President Obama has put off an immigration overhaul until next year, the federal agency in charge of approving visas is planning ahead for the possibility of giving legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, the agency’s director said Thursday.

“We are under way to prepare for that,” Alejandro Mayorkas, the director of the agency, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, said in an interview. Mr. Obama has told immigration officials that a legalization program would be part of legislation the White House would propose, said Mr. Mayorkas, who became director in August. The agency’s goal, he said, is to be ready to expand rapidly to handle the gigantic increase in visa applications it would face if the legislation, known as comprehensive immigration reform, passed Congress.

The citizenship agency faces a difficult balancing act, preparing for a potential workload bigger than any it has faced, based on legislation in early stages of discussion that is fiercely opposed by many lawmakers in Congress. Also, the agency must work to reduce backlogs and delays that have hampered its performance.

There are no official estimates of the number of illegal immigrants who would apply for legal documents. The Pew Hispanic Center and the Center for Immigration Studies, two research groups in Washington, estimate that at least 10.8 million illegal immigrants live in this country. But a large number of those would not be eligible for legal status for many reasons, including past immigration violations.

Currently, the citizenship agency can handle applications from about six million immigrants a year, Mr. Mayorkas said, including the time-consuming collection of fingerprints and other biometric identity information. Under some plans for legalization, the agency might receive that many applications in a few weeks.

An example of the planning, Mr. Mayorkas said, is an effort to improve the agency’s ability to receive applications via postal mail at secure reception points known as lockboxes. The agency currently receives about 65 percent of applications through lockboxes, which is more efficient than receiving them through local offices. The agency is trying to move quickly to receive all applications through lockboxes.

No votes yet

No amnesty/free pass for illegal aliens! Furthermore, let the United States prepare for repatriation not reparations for blacks and let the president usurper, the fraud and foreigner, prepare to have justice served, so help us God.

Besides,
Where's the birth certificate? This honest Constitutional question asked by legitimate American citizens will not just go away.

Consider this a virtual restraining order:

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

If Republicans were serious about stopping illegal immigration, they’d pose stiff penalties that include BIG fines and jail time for people hiring them. But they won’t because they don’t want to hurt the business that employee them.

And so the democrat solution is AMNESTY.

I'll never forget the video of Pelossi telling the illegals how patriotic they were.

You know the form that requires you to produce two forms of ID to prove you are an American citizen? That form came from 1986 when Reagan and Congress passed the first amnesty bill.

Did you have to give your employer your Social Security number a dozen times or so?

Those laws about hiring illegals are already there. Now you want to punish business for following the law?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.
