The former enforcer for the anti-enforcement ADL in the Southeast, Bill Nigut, now works for the leftist Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper here. Nigut is base progressive and a true hack. He is also an arrogant coward.
Today’s emailed afternoon AJC political blog newsletter (“Politically Georgia P.M. Update”) brought a column by Nigut titled “Opinion: The thorny history of immigration reform” in which he tells readers all about the need for another amnesty. Along the way he allows that
“In 2012 President Obama created DACA through an executive order. But its promise of giving permanent status to millions of young immigrants has faced endless legal challenges and partisan attacks ever since.”
It is not difficult to highlight the hard left’s daily misinformation – particularly on immigration matters – and Nigut’s attempt here is no exception. Obama, after repeatedly noting that as president he had no authority go around congress or to impose the now proven illegal DACA scheme was at least repeatedly clear that is was never intended to create a permanent status for the illegal aliens who benefitted: Here is part of what Zero said:
“Effective immediately, the Department of Homeland Security is taking steps to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people. Over the next few months, eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization.
Now, let’s be clear — this is not amnesty, this is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix. This is a temporary stopgap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people…”

Nigut’s afternoon missive on immigration, DACA and amnesty can be seen here. There will be no correction to the history re-write. This is all common practice for the AJC.
