ACLU Loses Grip on Reality – and the Law

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has never been an organization noted for applying sound logic to policy problems. Nevertheless, it appears to have totally relinquished whatever tenuous hold it may have had on reality. What is the nation’s premier agitator on behalf of illegal aliens and other immigration violators whining about now?
Officials at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) have been coordinating with their counterparts at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to facilitate the arrest of illegal aliens who have already been ordered deported, have re-entered the country illegally following deportation, or are considered “an egregious criminal alien.”
That shouldn’t be particularly shocking. USCIS and ICE (and U.S. Customs and Border Protection [CBP]) were once separate divisions within the former Immigration and Naturalization Service. And as part of the Department of Homeland Security, they exercise distinct, but complementary, responsibilities. But, according to the ACLU, ICE is prohibited from removing any aliens who have applied for a “Waiver of Unlawful Presence” and are waiting for USCIS to adjudicate their waiver application.
The basis for this prohibition is, supposedly, the “Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver” regulations, enacted under the Obama administration. The ACLU claims that the government created a “path” for illegal aliens to obtain a green card and, “the government can’t create that path and then arrest folks for following that path.”
