The Corner

The one and only.

Meanwhile, at the Border . . .

Obscured by the president’s illegal DREAM decree is a report by Steve Dinan in today’s Washington Times on a draft memo instructing Border Patrol agents to let certain illegal aliens go:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency charged with guarding the U.S. borders, has written a secret draft policy that would let its agents catch and release low-priority illegal immigrants rather than bring them in for processing and prosecution. . . .

The memo pointedly warns that “no public mention” should be made of the policy in order to keep it from being subject to Freedom of Information Act requests.

The memo says the policy was drafted at the behest of immigrant rights groups.

So, let them go if they’re caught at the border, then give them work authorization if they stay here long enough. Great!
