A Democratic congressman wants to play Monopoly with American resources and hand out the equivalent of “Get Out Of Deportation Free” cards.
Only the stakes are much higher and the money all too real in the game U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez is playing.
The Illinois Democrat created what he called a “family defender toolkit” for illegal immigrants to show immigration officials in case they are detained, according to CBS News.
The kit includes a “Do Not Deport Me” card saying, in English and Spanish, that cardholders are eligible to stay under President Obama’s executive actions, even though those actions have been put on hold by a court injunction.
“If you qualify for expanded DACA or the new DAPA program that were announced by the President on November 20, 2014, please use this toolkit to protect yourself from deportation,” Gutierrez wrote in a pamphlet describing the program, according to CBS News. “Even though you cannot apply yet for these programs, you can still prepare.”
The congressman urged the undocumented to carry the cards in their wallets to “use in cases of emergency,” he said in a video on his website. “Use this card only if you are arrested and detained by an immigration official.”
Immigrants, though, should not use the card if they are pulled over by a police officer for a minor infraction.
“It explains in English and Spanish that you’re eligible for DACA or DAPA,” he said. “By using this card after you’ve been arrested or detained, you can explain that under the policy in place today, you should be released because you’re not a priority for deportation.”
Does Gutierrez realize a judge halted Obama’s amnesty actions or does he just not care?
Huge win! Federal judge blocks Obama’s executive action amnesty.
Angry judge may slap sanctions on DOJ for lying about Obama’s executive amnesty.
Gutiérrez just spilled the Democratic beans; accidentally exposed real reason for amnesty.
House passes border bill, Gutierrez goes off the rails: ‘Only cowards scapegoat children.’
