More ‘great’ news from the Gang Rapers of Eight amnesty bill. According to Legal Insurrection, there is a major loophole in the amnesty bill that will allow DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to waive key security provisions in the bill. Basically, it will be able to Janet Napolitano to decide who gets to stay and who doesn’t in this country.
Yesterday Dana Loesch had a series of tweets about a section of the original Gang of 8 bill giving the Secretary of Homeland Security almost complete discretion to waive all other provisions of the law as to removal, deportation and inadmissibility.
It took me many hours to run that down and confirm. And I have done so.
This is extremely dense material. I’ve extracted and uploaded sections 3214 and 3215 from the May 28 version of the bill (the most recent listed on the Thomas website) along with the Corker amendment (3214 and 3215) as to these sections (which did not change anything relevant to this discussion) so you can read them yourself. The text references 8 U.S.C. 1182.
Here is the key provision, as part of section 3214(b) dealing with family unification. The section gives the Secretary discretion to waive the provisions as to removal, deportation and inadmissibility of illegal aliens not just for family ”hardship” (which itself is huge) but for any reason the Secretary deems in the ”public interest.”
I have highlighted and marked the key portion of the section to point out key wording:

Viva la amnesty!
