Democrats have struck again by sneaking a provision into the recently passed defense bill designed to empower a future president to grant sweeping amnesty to illegals.
Buried deeply inside of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act was a stealthily disguised passage to provide “parole in place” in order to reinforce “family unity” which is a green light to roll out the welcome mat.
The passage has nothing to do with defense or the military and is yet another sign of how Democrats and their armies of activist lawyers are determined to impose their ideology on America by hook or by crook.
Breitbart News reports, “Democrats Sneak Amnesty Power to Future President in 2020 Pentagon Bill”:
The 2020 Pentagon spending bill contains a camouflaged provision allowing any U.S. president to amnesty millions of illegal immigrants — regardless of the shock to Americans’ wages, workplaces, and communities, says a former immigration judge.
“It takes a little bit of digging (or wading) to get to Title X, Subtitle H, section 1099C on page 1,061 of NDAA 2020, which is captioned ‘Parole in Place for Members of the Armed Forces,’” says Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge who now works with the Center for Immigration Studies.
The critical language is hidden in the short section which apparently provides a modest immigration reward to foreign service members, saying:
(b) Sense Of Congress.—It is the sense of Congress that—
(1) parole in place reinforces family unity;
(2) disruption to servicemembers must be minimized, in order to faithfully execute their objectives;
(3) separation of military families must be prevented;
(6) Congress reaffirms parole in place authority for the Secretary of Homeland Security.
The last line will be cited as legal authority for a future President to offer the “parole in place” to as many migrants as he might wish to provide, said Andrew:
Expect section 1099C(b)(1) and (6) of NDAA 2020 to be used by a future president to grant future amnesties. DACA and DAPA rested on the slim reed of “prosecutorial discretion”. The next administrative action to grant status to those who entered illegally, on the other hand, will set firmly on the rock of Congress’s “reaffirm[ation of] parole in place authority for the Secretary of Homeland Security.”
… President Bernie Sanders is just waiting for the opportunity.

So, what is the status of this bill? Was it passed by both chambers of Congress? If so, has it been signed by POTUS? Is a line item veto possible? You neglected to address any of these details in the article. Without clarification, this article can be viewed as fear porn/sensationalism.
