Last month, Barack Obama announced his plans to defer deportation of approximately 5 million illegal aliens and grant them green cards to allow them to work in the US. Although everyone thought Obama was referring to an executive order, in reality he was speaking about a memo issued by Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security.
However, Paul Babeu, Sheriff of Pinal County in Arizona says that the figure of delayed deportations is closer to 20 million than it is to 5 million. In an interview earlier this week, Babeu stated:
The fact is, it’s not just the 5 million that President Obama promised, we learned that Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security, put out a six-page memo and he said that anybody who’s been here since January of this year, anybody prior to that date, they are allowed to stay here. There will be deferred action.
This number that President Obama promised would be 5 million is now 20 million illegals.
In the interview, Babeu was asked where he got the 20 million figure from. He responded:
President Obama said on TV, ‘if you’ve been here five years or more, there will be deferred action, that you’ll be given a work permit, a driver’s license, all access to our social programs.’
But Jeh Johnson, the very same day, put out a memo directed to all 23 agencies under the Department of Homeland Security saying that any illegal who’s been here this year as of January of 2014, they are entitled to this deferred action.
