'Do Not Deport Me' Card

One congressman is spearheading an effort to help undocumented immigrants avoid deportation with what some are calling a “get out of deportation” free card.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) and other House Democrats have created the Family Defender Toolkit, an informational pamphlet that includes an "emergency card" that lists the reasons why a person should not be deported.

“By using this card after you’ve been arrested or detained, you can explain that under the policy in place today, you should be released because you are not a priority for deportation,” said Rep. Gutierrez in an introductory video.

The two-page booklet details what legal documents immigrants should prepare in order to avoid deportation under President Obama’s immigration action-- even though the action is currently being held by a court injunction.

“I created this toolkit for you to protect yourself from deportation. Even though you cannot apply yet for the expanded DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and new DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents) you can still prepare,” said Gutierrez.

If I make an improper turn and get pulled over by a Policeman for doing something illegal, I would get a fine. Why do these criminals get a free pass just because they came here illegally and decided that they are entitled to everything? A time out card???? The freaking illegals get everything given to them on a silver platter!

Hey cops, want Americans to like and respect you again? How about instead of killing us and extorting us for our money, you guys get on the ball and charge every illegal you come across with a violent felony. That way they can't qualify for daca or paca. You still hit your quotas without raping actual citizens!
