The Amount of Free Legal Advice Obama OK’d For Illegal Immigrants Will Blow Your Mind

A new report has come out this week revealing that the Obama administration had approved $310 million in free legal advice to illegal immigrants, despite the fact that current federal law forbids the use of tax dollars to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation.

Then again, given Obama’s track record, is it really all that strange to hear he disobeyed the law? A man who had so little regard for the Constitution surely wouldn’t mind bending a few rules here and there.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that the funding was provided to a top legal defense group to help unaccompanied alien children under the age of 18 land with a sponsor in the U.S.

In 2015 and 2016, contracts reviewed by IRLI showed that several worth $310 million went to one nonprofit legal group, the Vera Institute of Justice. A top director has ties to liberal philanthropist George Soros.

At issue, said the group, is immigration law that bars using tax dollars to help illegal immigrants avoid deportation. In a report, IRLI said:

The Immigration and Nationality Act, Section 292, states that aliens in removal proceedings “shall have the privilege of being represented (at no expense to the government).” Immigrant special interest groups, sometimes on behalf of unaccompanied minors, have tried since 1996 to challenge this section, claiming it violates aliens’ rights. Federal courts have always rejected these claims.

The Obama administration handled waves of immigrants from Central America with some sympathy, especially when it involved minors and younger illegal immigrants. Many of the unaccompanied alien children were part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program granting a form of amnesty.

You see, part of the issue here isn’t just that these folks are receiving legal counsel on the taxpayer’s dime. It’s that the folks involved in these cases often had them fast tracked, allowing many of them to go free.

Quite a few of these individuals were gang members and other assorted unsavory types that we don’t want squatting in our country as they pose a direct risk to the safety and security of American citizens.

But alas, for the Democratic Party, who’s only goal is to stay in power and hopefully remake America into a socialist nightmare, they see illegal immigrants as a much needed voter demographic. Yes, they’re just tools to help stay dominate. Nothing more.

What’s really aggravating is that Obama will not be held accountable for his misappropriation of monetary resources in any way, shape, or form.

Guess if you’re a leftist you’re above the law.
