For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
WASHINGTON – In applying the provisions of the president's executive order, I hereby deem the entry of lawful permanent residents to be in the national interest.
Accordingly, absent the receipt of significant derogatory information indicating a serious threat to public safety and welfare, lawful permanent resident status will be a dispositive factor in our case-by-case determinations.

"I hereby deem" seems to be a "waiver".
You don't need to "deem" by way of "the present" that which already was.
You just can't help but cheer, can you?

A waiver needs the word "waiver" in its context.
