Obama Appoints Illegal Alien Czar

 "Illegal Immigrants" - a Euphemism for Illegal Aliens

by Rachel Pulaski at GatwayPundit: The Obama Administration has announced an “official advocate” for illegal immigrants.  His duties will include listening to the concerns the illegals have with our law enforcement policies.

The Washington Times reported:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the advocate will “serve as a point of contact for individuals, including those in immigration proceedings, NGOs and other community and advocacy groups, who have concerns, questions, recommendations or other issues they would like to raise.” The agency — part of the Homeland Security Department — said Andrew Lorenz-Strait will be the first advocate. But Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that meant elevating the concerns of illegal immigrants. “It’s outrageous that the Obama administration has appointed a taxpayer-funded activist for illegal and criminal immigrants who are detained or ordered deported. The administration all too often acts more like a lobbying firm for illegal immigrants than as an advocate for the American people,” Mr. Smith, Texas Republican, said. Mr. Smith said that when Congress created the Homeland Security Department, it specifically created an advocate’s position for those in the legal immigration process, but it declined to create one for illegal immigrants, who the courts have regularly ruled are not entitled to the same protections as citizens and legal residents.
This Administration may have a record number of deportations but they have issued a record number of “U” Visas to illegal immigrants. These visas provide illegals a path to legal and permanent residency. U Visa holders also receive all benefits and protections normally available to refugees (including Refugee Cash and Medical Assistance, Federally-Funded Public Benefits, and Individual Development Accounts).

The only concern illegals need to have is when will they get arrested and sent back home.
