Though the 25-year-old illegal immigrant went for years without a job, the current administration apparently feels Jose Munoz deserves to spend more time in the U.S. based on his years of experience … playing video games!
Reports indicate he applied for deferred action status, using records of his extensive Xbox use to prove he’s been in the nation continuously for at least five years.
The Obama administration approved his request, and he’s now free to roam around the nation unafraid of deportation.
According to the president’s guidelines on young illegals, Munoz met deferred status requirements by coming to the U.S. before the age of 16 without having reached the age of 30, along with having a high school diploma and an unblemished criminal record.
The leniency was ostensibly extended to provide an opportunity for these young adults to work in America, though; and any evidence of his work ethic was suspiciously missing from the information Munoz’s lawyer presented.
Using online data from his Microsoft Xbox, the illegal resident was able to submit extensive proof of his residency through game downloads and purchases as well as conversations with fellow gamers.
In light of his approval for deferred action, Munoz now claims he’s changed his tune and is no longer constantly playing games.
“I’ve had enough days off,” he said, adding he was “so bored” during his years and years as a couch potato.
Munoz’s story is just one of hundreds of thousands granted deferred action status since Obama signaled his intent to offer de facto amnesty to those who disregard our immigration laws.
In a nation defined by a declining work ethic and painfully bloated federal bureaucracy, bringing in more “professional” video game players like Munoz will only exacerbate both problematic trends.
