Atlanta, GA: The Obama administration is seeking a vendor to produce 34 million blank work permits and green cards as the White House prepares to issue an executive order on amnesty after the November election, reports watchdog.org.
“USCIS Contracting will be posting a solicitation for the requirement of Card Stock used by the USCIS Document Management Division. The objective of this procurement is to provide card consumables for the Document Management Division (DMD) that will be used to produce Permanent Resident Cards (PRC) and Employment Authorization Documentation (EAD) cards. The requirement is for an estimated 4 million cards annually with the potential to buy as many as 34 million cards total, says an online solicitation by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services (USCIS) .
If the numbers reported are correct, they are vastly larger than official estimates of 12 million illegal residents in this country, says watchdog.org.
A USCIS official told MailOnline recently that the draft was published ‘in case the president makes the move we think he will,’ but added that the agency’s DMD is by no means committed to buying the materials.
A second official at the agency said the proposal was drafted as a contingency in case immigration reform legislation passes in Congress, not in anticipation of action from the White House, reports dailymail.co.uk.
