(2) WAIVER- Notwithstanding paragraph (1), the Secretary of Homeland Security may waive the ground of ineligibility under paragraph (1), (4), or (6) of section 212(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act and the ground of deportability under paragraph (1) of section 237(a) of that Act for humanitarian purposes or family unity or when it is otherwise in the public interest.

Conspiracy theorists like William Gheen made a big deal about the waiver authority included in the December version of the DREAM Act, claiming that itr allowed for the federal government to extend DREAM Act relief to all undocumented immigrants within the United States. Gheen recently restated this on the State of Things with Frank Stasio.

Aside from being incorrect, Gheen’s claim doesn’t make any sense. The waiver only applies to paragraphs (1), (4) and (6) of section 212a of the the Immigration and Nationality Act, which are health, welfare and unlawful entry considerations. It also states that DHS can only do so “for humanitarian purposes or family unity or when it is otherwise in the public interest.”

Let’s humor the idea for a second: if the President were to interpret the waiver so loosely as to apply it to twelve million people rather than the estimated two million, why would he need the DREAM Act at all? The president can already unilaterally halt deportations, as 22 Senators are now asking him to do. He can also freeze someone’s immigration status (known as “paroling-in-place”) without legislation. The motivation to do what Gheen claims Obama is doing isn’t there, even it were possible.

The problem has been Obama’s failure to do everything he can for immigrants, not what he might do with legislative backing. Nonetheless, this is one conspiracy theory you will still find all over the Internet.

Just days before the American Renaissance has its national conference in North Carolina, ALIPAC has released a statement defending the race-science publication. The American Renaissance recently made national headlines when Fox News released a memo stating that the Department of Homeland Security was directing “strong suspicion” at the publication. It was later reported that DHS had nothing to do with the statement, and Fox didn’t provide where its source came from.

That hasn’t stopped ALIPAC—which is based in North Carolina—from calling for a Congressional investigation of DHS in a statement released January 21:

“ALIPAC is calling on members of Congress to investigate why the Department of Homeland Security sent a memo to the media containing false information implying that the Tucson shooter Jared Loughner, was motivated by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ religion and stance in favor of Amnesty [sic] for illegal immigrants.”

As Politico reported ten days before ALIPAC released its statement, the erroneous memo came from the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center, not the DHS. The memo was improperly sourced by Fox News, but even that was determined over a week ago.

The Christian Science Monitor referred to the American Renaissance as an anti-immigrant group, but the primary focus of the publication is race science rather than immigration policy. The February 2011 issue discusses migration to Europe more than the United States, and does so in the context of racial preservation. It also assumes an all-white audience:

“In Life After the Collapse, Thomas Jackson reviews Archeofuturism by French author Guillaume Faye (written in 1998 and only recently translated into English). This remarkable book peers into the near and distant future, and sees “multiculturalism” running its course, leading to the fracturing and disintegration of Western nations, and speculates on what will emerge from the rubble. Dr. Faye fully recognizes the significance of race and, while strongly connected to the European peoples and their cultures, he prescribes a complete revolution of the current order as soon as possible to maximize the chances for the long-term survival of our descendants.”

The American Renaissance will hold its major conference February 4-6 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The conference will focus on “Defending the West.” The announcement of the conference states that “Ours is an era of fear and self-censorship. Virtually no whites are willing to break taboos about racial differences in IQ, the costs of “diversity,” or the challenges of non-white immigration. We are different. We believe these are vital questions.”

ALIPAC has made a serious error by perpetuating misinformation long after it was determined to be faulty. They are calling for unwarranted investigations into DHS, stirring opposition and fear of the federal government. They have done so in the defense of an organization that promotes policy that favors whites over other groups—more blatantly speaking, in defense of an organization that supports white supremacy. Any public official that is contacted by ALIPAC supporters about this issue should rebuke the organization immediately.
