12. Actually, "the rules " were already signed by the Justice Dept.

And the only other decision to be made will be HOW the rules are applied and to whom.
so the Pres. was either not involved or was ok with the plan.

Last paragraph in the article:
"Once the terms are set, Homeland Security is likely to post a notice in the Federal Register. The public can submit comments to the Federal Register about proposed changes, although Homeland Security isn't required to make changes based on the comments. "


Notably, the 2 key people from the Justice Dept and Homeland Security who were concerned about this plan, are now gone,:
"
This year, Ms. Callahan left Homeland Security for private practice, and Ms. Libin left the Justice Department to join a private firm."

article does not say whose idea it was for them to leave.
It would be nice if it turns out they resigned in protest.
