Backdoor amnesty, here we come (because the Democrats need voters, stat!)

And where is our beloved fourth estate? 

Crickets.

Via Doug Ross, the DHS figured out how to conjure more voters for Obama and his minions:

Critics assail the plan as a bid to create a kind of backdoor ‘amnesty’

The Department of Homeland Security is systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants who have no serious criminal records… Critics assailed the plan as another sign that the Obama administration is trying to create a kind of backdoor “amnesty” program…

“They’ve made clear that they have no interest in enforcing immigration laws against people who are not convicted criminals,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for strict controls.

“This situation is just another side effect of President Obama’s failure to deliver on his campaign promise to make immigration reform a priority in his first year,” said U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. “Until he does, state and local authorities are left with no choice but to pick up the slack for prosecuting and detaining criminal aliens.”

…Tre Rebsock, the ICE union representative in Houston, said even if the efforts involve only a fraction of the pending immigration cases, “that’s going to make our officers feel even more powerless to enforce the laws.”

And the vast majority of Americans who think the laws should be enforced a la Arizona.
