Eric Cantor Picked the Wrong Base

Speaker John Boehner is among those mystified by Eric Cantor's loss.

Speaker John Boehner is among those mystified by Eric Cantor’s loss.

It’s no mystery why Eric Cantor lost his primary last Tuesday. He simply failed to turn out his new Hispanic base. And Cantor is not completely to blame for this failure, because events outside his control were also working against him.

On the day of the vote many members of his new voting block, Futuro Ciudadnos for Cantor couldn’t votar because they were waiting outside the local bus stations and airports to be reunited with younger members of their extended family. It’s really a shame Cantor lost because footage of these tearful reunions would have made great feel–good television spots in November, as long as the crew made sure no weeping taxpayers could be seen in the back of the frame.

[CULTURAL SENSITIVITY NOTE REGARDING OUR NEW NEIGHBORS: When Gringos send their unaccompanied minors to visit the ex, they complicate the process with needless rules and bureaucracy. On United Airlines — my carrier of choice — parents pay a fee of $150 each way for an unaccompanied minor, on top of what the airfare cost. The parent or guardian is required to arrive early at the airport, with photo identification and contact information and the same info regarding the person meeting little Belgium at his destination.

The child gets an I.D. badge and experiences the tender mercies of the TSA, which may include being felt up. When boarding the plane, flight attendants greet him personally, escort him to his seat and buckle him in. At the destination a United employee meets your child and escorts him to the arrivals area where the identification of the ex is checked closely to make sure there is an exact match with the data supplied before the child boarded.

Once the paperwork is complete, Belgium is handed over.

Futuro cuidadnos in need of an anchor adolescent have a much simpler system. First of all it’s a one-way trip. Jesusito — who can be a son, cousin, uncle, nephew, foster child, drinking buddy or fellow gang member — is tossed on the nearest autobus heading for El Norte. His documentation, if any, consists of tattoos and a handwritten note listing the town where his ‘relatives’ are living in the shadows doing the work US business won’t pay citizens enough to do.

Once he arrives at the border he wades, rides, walks, sneaks, jumps or runs across. If he’s not lucky enough to be captured immediately by the Border Patrol, Jesusito must track one down and inform the CBP officer of his rights and what services the officer needs to provide to avoid a UN investigation.

On the United flight the unaccompanied minor gets a bag of pretzels.

At INS Daycare Jesusito gets food, a bed, his diaper changed (only if necessary), a shower, entertainment, visits from befuddled Members of Congress and transportation that will reunite him with the family whose deportation he will prevent in the future. And it’s all free! Well, free for Jesusito since the taxpayers are footing the bill.]

So it’s no wonder Cantor lost with that kind of distraction affecting his base. Of course there is no guarantee Eric would have won even without the interference of the infant invasion. His new amigos aren’t known for displays of gratitude, in fact amnesty advocates invaded Cantor’s ‘Victory Celebration’ after he lost demanding legislation he was in no position to pass after the polls closed.

Now that he’s no longer a political factor the rumors of how hard it was to work with Cantor’s arrogant staff start to surface. This is plausible. Cantor was House Majority Leader, so he gets funding for two sets of staff members: The Congressional staff and the majority leader’s staff. I used to work for a majority leader and in DC this officer holder is not a mere congressman or representative. People address him as ‘leader’ and do so with a straight face. It’s like ruling in your own private North Korea without the really bad hair and mass starvation.

You can imagine what a shock it must have been to go back to the district were voters not only didn’t call him ‘leader,’ they asked impertinent questions and wanted college recommendations for their kids.

The same goes for the staff. In DC everyone treads lightly around these pencil necks because they have Cantor’s ear and can make your political life miserable. But they, too get no respect when some rube from Virginia calls wondering where her Social Security check is and why her son can’t get full disability after that unfortunate explosion in the meth lab.

The only portion of Cantor’s new base that came through for him was the big business money that allowed him to outspend opponent Dave Brat by 25–to–1.

Which reminds me: How many of you took my excellent advice shared here and contributed to Brat’s campaign BEFORE he won? I feel like one of those guys that bought Apple stock before Steve started using deodorant and came back to save the company.

Cantor is another one of those too–clever–by–half politicians that outgrew their voters and made the fatal mistake of letting the voters know it. His focus–group tested language and his amnesty triangulation — conservative enough to confuse the district, but not so much that the US Chamber of Commerce, agriculture lobbyists and HB–1 visa proponents would shut off the money spigot — had one fatal flaw. Clinton, the inventor of triangulation, did his in the general election, not the primary.

Brat’s campaign and his fund raising just got him over the threshold of credibility and angry voters did the rest. But Brat should take care that Cantor’s defeat doesn’t go to his head. When an incumbent loses the vast majority of voters don’t vote for the winner, they vote against the incumbent. Brat just happened to reap the whirlwind.

He must still continue to make the case for his ideas and build strong ties with the district before November.

In the meantime conservatives can enjoy watching the amnesty lobby explain how illegal immigration had absolutely nothing to do with Cantor’s loss. In fact, if Cantor had only come out stronger for amnesty and Chipotle has closed early on the day of the primary, he would still be the Congressman.

It’s like trying to explain that Noah’s flood didn’t wipe out the earth’s population. The root cause was lack of oxygen and no Corps of Engineers.

ICE Director: We Didn’t Let “Bad” Bad Guys Out Of Prison.

ice illegal immigration 1

In a very covert fashion the Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) quietly announced that in order to cut costs, it had released undocumented immigrants it was holding in detention.

Initially, the Obama administration had insisted only a “few hundred” immigrants were released for budgetary reasons in February with reported plans to release more than 3,000 others this month. Under scrutiny ICE admitted that they had released 2,800 individuals. Following intense criticism from border state governors and conservative congressmen as well as public outcry the department opted for a temporary shutdown of the plan.

Governor Jan Brewer from Arizona, sent a memo last week repeating her request for the Obama administration to release information pertaining to the release of these individuals which reads, in part:

Among those released, according to Director Morton, were at least 10 individuals classified among the highest-risk offenders. Others released included repeat drunken-driving offenders who, in addition to being in our country illegally, have exhibited behavior that places at-risk every Arizonan innocently sharing our roadways.

Yesterday’s ICE testimony directly contradicts repeated assurances and explanations peddled by the Obama administration in the days after the mass release of illegal aliens became public knowledge. The American people were initially told there were hundreds, not thousands, of individuals released. We were assured they were low-level detainees of little public risk. As we now know, neither of these claims was accurate.

Today Director Morton was called before the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee hearing on Immigration Enforcement to testify regarding his department’s actions. You can read ICE Director Morton’s prepared statement here.

You can watch the entire day’s hearing here. Chairman of the committee, Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) gives a six minute rebuke of ICE and the department.ice illegal immigration

But you might prefer Representative Trey Gowdy, (R-SC), former state prosecutor (begins at 47 minutes) as he spends his five minutes grilling the director with questions demonstrating his strong experience in court.

You can watch a few minutes of Gowdy’s Exchange below:

All this leads to the question: Were these released individuals really ‘the worst of the worst’ as stated numerous times by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano or are they just a bunch of guys who happened to be imprisoned by ICE and used as political pawns?

Judge Jeanine Calls Out ICE for Release of Criminal Illegals

judge jeanine

In her opening statement last weekend, Judge Jeanine Pirro lit into the Obama administration, including the Department of Homeland Security and ICE for releasing illegal immigrants. Saying they were only releasing non-violent illegals and blaming it on the sequestration the administration further backed away from any responsibility by putting the decisions on the shoulders of ‘career ICE employees’.

Judge Jeanine comes prepared with facts to back up her comments. This clip is well worth watching and sharing with the naive who believe everything said by presidential spokesman, Jay Carney.

 

Pulitzer Winner Arrested

Pulitzer Prize winning author and illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas was arrested Friday in Minneapolis, MN, but was promptly released by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers the same day.

Click here for more on who Vargas is & his immigration story.

According to reports, Vargas was stopped by police on Interstate 35W for driving while wearing headphones. Officers then learned that the Washington drivers license Vargas was using was invalid and therefore called ICE. According to a Star Tribune article, the license was cancelled due to fraudulent activity. The nature of the fraudulent activity was not revealed in the report.

Vargas spent approximately 3 hours in the Hennepin County Jail and the rental car he was driving was towed. He will not face illegal immigration charges.

Vargas at one time also held an Oregon license, a fraudulent social security card and passport, and has used false addresses to obtain identification. (CDN) Vargas has held jobs at The Huffington Post, The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle, founded the Define American organization, travels the country frequently by plane and participates in other activities that require identification. He appears on MSNBC often, has been a guest on Fox News Channel and gives speeches on college campuses. How is it that he is able to so freely move about the country with fraudulent identification?

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen told the LA Times, “ICE is focused on smart, effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes the removal of public safety threats, recent border crossers and egregious immigration law violators…”

One U.S. congressman is speaking out against Vargas and the flawed and inconsistent immigration policies that have allowed Vargas to make a mockery of America’s laws.

Representative Elton Gallegly (R-CA) said in an interview with POLITICO, “He is just one of thousands that are ignored, and what that does it, it sends a signal that we’re not serious about certain laws.”

In his mini-autobiography in Time magazine last year, Vargas admitted to breaking several state and federal laws attempting to justify his illegal activity by saying, “I was paying state and federal taxes…”

Though Vargas will not face illegal immigration charges for his latest run-in with the law, he is scheduled to appear in court on October 18 for the misdemeanor traffic violation.

Obama Dream Act Executive Order Causes ICE Confusion

ice agents

A top union official for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers said at a press conference headed by Senator Jeff Sessions, R(AL) that President Barack Obama’s administration has ordered ICE agents to accept statements by illegal immigrants if they claim they qualify for Obama’s administrative DREAM Act. Agents are to believe statements at face value and without any verification.

Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, explained how the new selective immigration enforcement is affecting the ICE agents:

“As we still wait on detailed guidance from the administration, it’s impossible to understand the full scope of the administration’s changes, but what we’ve seen so far concerns us greatly,” Crane, said. “As one example, prosecutorial discretion for DREAMers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are: If an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go.”

“Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything,” he continued. “Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria.”

This new directive contradicts Homeland Security’s own words: “Only those individuals who can prove through verifiable documentation that they meet these criteria will be eligible for deferred action.”

Evidence of this new policy was detailed in a story last month at CDN by Pinal County Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu. As soon as the new policy went into effect so called ‘dreamers’ were allowed to be released if they simply told officers they were qualified to stay in the US.

“The lawlessness must end,” Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, whose office organized the presser, said. “They’ve handcuffed and muffled those charged with protecting the public safety and the integrity of our borders,” Sessions said. “Such action has not only weakened our security but our democracy. All Americans, immigrant and native born, will have a better future if our nation remains unique in the world for its special reverence for the rule of law and fairness in our immigration system.”

Senator Chuck Grassley R(IA), the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the policy is a political act by Obama meant to garner votes. “The president campaigns in 2008 that, in the first year, he’s going to have immigration issues solved,” Grassley said. “At this point, after three-and-a-half years, we have not seen any bill whatsoever. So, then as is a core pattern in this administration, you got to blame somebody else, so it [the administration] comes up with this statement: ‘if Congress won’t, I will.’”

In a tight presidential election will this obvious attempt to buy votes further endear DREAM Act subscribers to the Obama camp or will the blatant overstepping of the president through executive order turn away voters?

Roadside Amnesty in AZ

arizona flag

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu posted about the new ICE policy in Arizona. He describes an incident from June 27, 2012:

At 4:45 p.m. one of my deputies stopped a vehicle on a traffic stop after he observed it speeding at 85 mph in a 35 mph zone near Merrill Ranch Parkway on Felix Road. The vehicle also unsafely passed another vehicle while using the two way left turn lane.

The driver of the vehicle was a 17-year-old Hispanic male who verbally identified himself and told the deputy he was driving in such a reckless manner because he was “late for work.” The driver told the deputy he did not have a driver’s license and could not obtain any identification, since he lacked proper documentation required to qualify. He also said that his parents are also in the United States illegally. He told the deputy he was born in Mexico. When asked where he lived he stated, “Little Mexico.” The driver said that he could not remember his exact home address.

The deputy notified his supervisor of his stop and then notified U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). The deputy explained to the ICE representative he had a 17-year-old juvenile stopped who had committed two misdemeanors, had no identification, admitted both he and his parents were in the United States illegally.

The ICE representative asked how long the individual had been in the United States. The deputy told him the juvenile said he was born in Mexico but claimed to have been living in the United States for the majority of his life. The deputy was told by ICE that since he was in the United States for more than five years, they were not interested in him unless he committed a felony crime.

The deputy asked the ICE representative about the parents whom the juvenile said were illegally in the United States as well. The ICE representative told him that if the parents have been in the United States for five years or more also, he was not going to take any action against them either.

The driver was cited and released to his mother who responded to the scene. The vehicle impounded for 30 days due to the fact it was operated on the roadways without a licensed driver.

True to their word, ICE is no longer responding to situations involving illegals in Arizona. The ICE agent made a clear decision not to investigate the matter based simply on a phone conversation. No one verified that any of the information was fact. 

Sheriff Babeu and his deputies are frustrated. On his website Babeu writes, “As troubling, President Obama established a toll free hot line to report law enforcement for suspected racial profiling. How have we arrived at this point in America, where our own President decides what laws don’t apply to illegals and then establishes a hot line for them to report our heroes in law enforcement for suspected racial profiling? Where is the hot line for me to call to demand that all the laws are enforced and for the President to stop portraying law enforcement as the bad guys?”

It does not appear that the Department of Justice, the Department of Immigrations and Customs nor the Obama Administration will do anything to promote justice for the citizens of Arizona…at least until there is a new administration.

Breaking News: Gunfight in ICE Office: 1 Dead 1 Wounded

On Thursday an ICE agent opened fire upon his supervisor during a dispute, upon which another agent opened fire killing the first agent who opened fire in a federal building on  the seventh floor of the Glenn M. Anderson Federal Building in downtown Long  Beach that houses ICE, the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Probation and  Parole Office, according to Fox News. While details are still sketchy, there are confirmed reports of 1 dead ICE agent and 1 injured. The injured officer is still hospitalized and listed as in stable condition.

CNN currently reports it as follows:

“The situation began … as an incidence of workplace violence involving two federal agents in their office space,” said Steven Martinez, assistant director of the FBI office in Los Angeles. “When the incident escalated, one agent fired several rounds at the other agent, wounding him.”

The agent shot suffered multiple injuries and is undergoing treatment at a local hospital.

Martinez said a third colleague intervened and fired at the shooter, killing him.

Supreme Court To Decide On Arizona Immigration Law

photo: illegalimmigrationstatistics.org


Today the nations highest court decided to make a decision on Arizona’s Immigration Law. SB 1070, officially called the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, has had most of it’s provisions blocked by federal courts up to this point.

The courts, for the most part, have sided with the Justice Departments argument that the law will hamper current federal law enforcements efforts to curb illegal immigration. An argument some opponents say makes no sense, given the current Administration’s latest decision to only pursue illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes.

SB 1070 requires Arizona law enforcement to detain individuals during stops they suspect of being in the country illegally. Arizona leadership contend that the law is to aid, not hinder, in the current battle against illegal immigration.

Most likely, the Court will hear the case in April, leading to a decision before July. This will possibly coincide with the Court’s decision regarding the President’s health care overhaul, which conservatives and Republicans say oversteps the limits of the federal government.

The scheduling and decision of both cases can have a dramatic impact on the upcoming presidential and congressional elections.

DHS Takes Action Against.. Exploding Turkeys

DHS Chief Janet Napolitano wants America to know they are on the job keeping everyone safe this holiday season. Watch the following video on how the geniuses at the Department of Homeland Security are going out of their way to protect (by spending taxpayer dollars on ridiculous common sense issues) people who apparently are too lazy to read the directions on every turkey fryer sold in America today.

Let’s try to figure out how these people set up this “demonstration on an exploding turkey” shall we?

1 – Make sure you have the fryer over 3/4 full of hot oil so it spills over the edge and catches fire. Check.

2 – Make sure the turkey is completely frozen beforehand, as we all have had the experience of seeing what happens when frozen foods meet hot oil, such as french fries, chicken wings, fish etc. Ka-Whoosh! Big fire!

3 – Let’s make sure we have a fireman in a fire-suit covered from head to toe, with an oxygen mask, boots, gloves, the whole nine yards to show the public how responsible our government is in protecting their actor’s well-being. This also makes for very dramatic theater to get the dummies attention, because they must be dummies refusing to read the instructions and tossing frozen turkeys into a 375 degree fryer loaded with hot oil.

4 – This excellent usage of taxpayer dollars will allow Napolitano and company at the DHS to demand a few billion more tax dollars for next year’s big government expansion of turkey fryer police and federal regulators protecting America from exploding turkeys,and dummies houses being burned down by ignorant morons too stupid or lazy to read the instructions that come with every turkey fryer sold in the U.S.A.

Has America become such a dumbed-down nanny-state that we now need Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security teaching us how to deep fry a turkey on Thanksgiving? Maybe this all came about because they do not have enough work to do today, seeing as to how they just declared that ICE and Border agents will no longer be permitted to search for and detain for deportation, illegal immigrants in America, therefore freeing them up to make commercials about the dangers of exploding turkeys? This is what you get when a government goes wild, asking for 250,000 more employees, and then makes up rules that prevents them from doing the jobs they were hired to do in the first place! Here is a hat tip for Ms. Napolitano, free of charge: Either do your job and detain and deport illegal immigrants who are breaking the law when entering America, or get out of our government! Clear enough?

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

Another Documented, Disgusting Failure by DHS to Protest U.S. Citizens

Meet Francisco Guillermo Morales Esquer, 36, who was arrested in Arizona on Oct. 13th, ( less than 3 weeks ago) in one of three major busts that state and federal officials credited with dismantling a far-reaching drug smuggling ring, which is believed to be tied to the Sinaloa drug cartel – one of Mexico’s ( and now, thanks to the DHS, America’s) most powerful criminal gangster-groups. (AP/Pinal County Sheriffs dept photo)

On Monday, officials held a news conference announcing the supposed breakup of a Mexican drug cartel smuggling ring in Phoenix, Az. in which they proudly displayed hundreds of pounds of drugs and numerous guns they had seized during the Oct 13th bust. A mere five hours later, law enforcement officials clocked a car going 50 mph in a 15 mph school zone about 50 miles south of Phoenix, and a high-speed chase ensued when the car’s driver refused to pull over at the request of police. After reaching speeds of over 100 mph, and an attempt by the driver to run over a police officer trying to lay down stop sticks to end the chase, the driver crashed the car and jumped into a canal, where they captured him. The driver of the car was none other than the above-mentioned Mr. Morales, whom was arrested in the major drug smuggling bust just two weeks prior. How Mr. Morales ended up back on the streets of America just two weeks after being arrested in a major drug cartel bust is a very real example of the DHS’ failure to do their job and protect the citizens of America.

Mr. Morales had been arrested in a home tied to the drug cartel in the Oct. 13th bust in which numerous guns were found, yet prosecutors somehow claim they didn’t have enough evidence to convict him at the time, so they released him to the border patrol. It is the responsibility of ICE and DHS to prosecute him for felony reentry into the U.S. as Mr. Morales had already been deported at least once before. DHS then refused to prosecute him and turned him loose, where he was caught again in the high-speed police pursuit where Mr. Morales also tried to kill a police officer by running him over.

Released by DHS, illegal immigrant caught in U.S. with carload of drugs two weeks later.

 

The Department of Homeland Security‘s refusal to prosecute Morales for felony illegal reentry into the U.S put police officer’s and citizen’s lives in danger by letting him back on the streets. And this ludicrous example of the DHS’ criminality in refusing to enforce our laws does not end there. Just two weeks after DHS let this criminal back on the streets, he is caught running from the police… in a car loaded with 80 pounds of heroin and another 8 pounds of methamphetamine! The number of lives that would be ruined by the amount of drugs that DHS allowed [Mr. Morales] back onto the streets to peddle represents a very serious problem, if not an outright act of treason against American citizens.

One of the officers on the front line of this battle, Pinal County, Az, Sheriff Paul Babeu held a news conference in which he explained just what is going on down there. “Here we strike a body blow on the Sinaloa cartel, (and) they’re still operating in a robust fashion,” he said. “They can regenerate immediately.” He went on to add that there are no consequences for their illegal criminal actions. Thanks to DHS, people like Morales just keep on being released to further endanger American’s lives and well-being through their refusal to prosecute these criminals, as evidenced by this latest episode of the Obama administration’s appointed DHS chief, Janet Napolitano’s failure and refusal to uphold and enforce the law.Meanwhile, Napolitano continues to deny law enforcement officials the ability to identify and arrest illegal immigrants across America, as evidenced in the DHS/ DOJ/Obama mandated lawsuits against Arizona, Alabama and now South Carolina‘s state laws designed to protect their citizens from the likes of career criminals and illegal immigrant/invader Mr. Morales and the Sinaloa drug cartel.

While DHS, ICE and assorted law enforcement officials were quick to hold major press conferences to announce the recent arrest of 76 suspected dope smugglers, the seizure of 61,000 pounds of pot, 160 pounds of heroin, 210 pounds of cocaine, $760,000 dollars in cash and 108 weapons including assault rifles and shotguns in the dismantling of this drug ring that brought some $33 million worth of drugs a month into the western desert states for nationwide distribution, we also see that they let many of these criminals go free to regenerate the drug smuggling operation in a short two weeks. This is what happens in a country where the President is seen to be acting like a Socialistic dictator in bypassing Congress to enact laws by executive fiat, as Obama has done concerning illegal immigration laws recently. This problem is being magnified tenfold by the politically correct cowards of the U.S. Congress, whom refuse to use their duly enacted powers to bring the president to heel according to Constitutional law. How many American’s lives and families have to be destroyed by these Mexican drug cartels and the thousands of pounds of drugs they are distributing throughout America, before our elected officials will take a stand and demand that those breaking the law through the executive fiat-mandated DHS policies be thrown out of our government and brought up on charges?

Will the Obama-appointed DHS Chief, Janet Napolitano call a national press conference to announce how her new department rules mandated that ICE officials let Mr. Morales back on the streets to continue his drug-running operation in the U.S.? Don’t hold your breath. All we hear out of the DHS nowadays, is how our Southern border is more secure today than ever before.  What a joke.
2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

ICE Arrests 300 Fugitive Illegal Aliens in South Florida

 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials Monday announced the arrests of 330 fugitive illegal aliens in one of the largest customs enforcement operations ever undertaken in South Florida. The arrests were made over a two-week period and involved Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Broward counties. In an apparent slap at President Obama’s recent executive- amnesty orders that he is trying to implement once again by executive fiat, while completely ignoring the fact that Congress voted down his Dream Act, Michael Rozos, the Director of ICE’s Florida field office stated: "Our message is clear: The days when illegal aliens in this nation willfully ignore immigration judges’ orders are over."  How refreshing it is to hear that a government agent is demanding that the rule of law in America be obeyed 24/7/365 !  Thank you Mr. Rozos.  Warren Buffet received the "Medal of Freedom" for basically being nothing more than a political operative in support of Obama, so what say we give Mr. Rozos 10 Freedom Medals for keeping Floridians free from these illegal criminals and their effects on our economy and state programs before we end up 20 billion dollars in the red like the proud Illegal Sanctuary State of California:

   

Officials said the arrests are just a small portion of the nation’s backlog of immigration violators: about 597,000 total fugitives. The numbers are so large that South Florida’s enforcement teams are set to increase from five to seven later on this month.  When DHS Secretary Janet napolitani says that our southern border is more secure than ever before in history based on the number of phony deportations,she is proven not only to be a mathematically-challenged propagandist but also proven to be a danger to this country. When JNP, (for Janet Napolitano the Propagandist) all you have to do to understand her manipulation is to watch the show  Border Wars on the Nat-Geo channel.

 In that show we see illegals caught trying to sneak into the country, actual convicted felons and drug smugglers, along with human traffickers that are caught near our border simply turned loose back to Mexico in a little known gimmick as "Voluntary Return." JNP then counts these voluntary returns as "deportations" to inflate the DHS statistics. When she claims that deportations are up by a whopping percentage, that is largely due to the fact that before her appointment as the  DHS  Dream-Act- Queen- by Barack Obama, they did NOT count people stopped at the border as being deported. A person caught while illegally entering the United States is not in fact "deported, but she knows this, yet uses it anyway to skew the deportation statistics. According to ICE/DHS statistics,  there are over 500,000 fugitive illegal aliens in America today who simply ignored the Immigration Judge’s deportation order and are running loose in America in violation of federal law. This is also a huge part of the DHS hidden Dream Act fraud being played upon America today. When honorable state ICE and other  law enforcement agencies arrest illegals they turn them over to the FEDS, who more times than not let them go simply if they promise to show up for an immigration hearing.  Which they promptly ignore, so then we have the added cost burdens of filing felony  fugitive warrants on them. Why in the hell not send them back to their host country immediately, as our original laws call for, instead of releasing them for years and then having to track them down?  This appears to be a simple case of ignorance and incompetence from within DHS, UNLESS someone wanted to overload the system in order to collapse it to effect the very same "transformative change,"  as it states in the Rules for Radicals Marxist operators manual written by Saul Alinsky, and stated much-favored reading material of Barack Obama while in college.

 There are currently estimated to be between 15 and 20 million illegal immigrants in America today. Considering that, contrary to the lies and propaganda spewed by the  irresponsible vote-beggars of Congress, these illegals are crushing State’s budgets, especially Medicaid funding.  Who do you think picks up the tab for the millions of illegal anchor babies born in this country  year, after year, after year, Santa Claus?  The Easter Rabbit? The Tooth Fairy? Lets get real here people . One simple example of Illegals costing taxpayers billions of dollars a year, thanks to the Congress critters who refuse to obey the law and deport them immediately upon discovery,  WIC, the program for AMERICAN  Women, Infants, and Children has now become MWIC, for Mexican Women Infants and Children,  and we see the proof every single time we go to the grocery store here in Florida!  There is basically only one requirement to get  WIC coupons from our taxpayer-funded WIC program: Applicants must live in the state in which they apply.  So much for the lies being told that illegals are just hard-working people who increase our revenues and are not a drain on our society there, isn’t it? 

Thank you again Mr. Rozos, and all the brave ICE agents of Florida for trying to enforce immigration laws in Florida and deport them as mandated in said laws. Eventually the DHS Dream Act puppets that are ignoring federal immigration laws and the Congressional refusal to enact The Dream Act, should and hopefully will be brought up on charges one day soon. Just like in the U. S. Military, when a government official orders a subordinate to break the law, said official can be brought up on criminal charges. What say you Congress?

              27-year veteran ICE Chief Anthony Mangione arrested on child porn charges in Broward County Florida.

In related Florida immigration news, we see that the Director of the Florida ICE office in Miami was arrested on child pronography charges last Tuesday according to local media reports. Fighting child pornography was one of the tasks that the Miami ICE office. Another case of the fox being put in charge of guarding the hen-house there. In something that appears to be some kind of cover-up, ICE Chief Anthony Mangione’s arrest was documented in Broward County public records, but specific charges were not listed immediately. The FBI has found child pornography on his home computer after it was confiscated back in April as part of a child porn investigation.Mangione has been with ICE for 27 years and was soon set to retire. Now it appears as if he will be "retiring" to prison for several years, if these charges are proven correct. Federal officials at the Justice Dept and U.S. Marshall’s offices are refusing to comment, pointing to this as still being an ongoing investigation with possible future arrests. If this man is proven guilty, it is good to see him taken off the streets of Florida and away from our children.

 

 

Why some are more 'illegal' than others

Forty years ago he stepped across an imaginary line to make his home in Maryland. He married, worked hard, raised a family, sent his children to public school, paid taxes, saw one wife die of cancer and even played fantasy football. Placing him right smack dab in the mainstream of American life. No different from thousands, even millions of other hard–working Americans who were fortunate enough to be born in Maryland.
Then, without warning, armed sheriff’s deputies are pounding on his door at 3:30 AM, just like the KGB. They barge into his room, ignore his protests, snap handcuffs around his wrists and drag him off to jail. Leaving behind a stunned, broken family that has been brutally separated from their father and is now looking for a way to survive in today’s cruel America.
No doubt you’re wondering where you can join a protest or demonstration demanding an apology for this outrage, organized by indignado members of CASA de Maryland, the National Council of La Raza, the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund and the Pew Hispanic Center.
Unfortunately, this particular arrest doesn’t lend itself to intervention by professional Mexicans and border–jumping advocates. Which explains why this story is not another ‘little brown brother’ weeper. The problem here is Mr. Glenn Wilson is too white, too old, doesn’t hablar Spanish and is already is an American citizen. Worst of all for Glenn, he’s not a member of a potential Democrat voting block.
Wilson’s offense — other than skin color and national origin — is he walked out of the courthouse in 1971 and didn’t return to face a minor burglary charge. In the ensuing four decades Wilson remained in Maryland and became a law–abiding resident. His only arrest was the one last week that put him in jail on a 40–year–old warrant.
Now if Wilson’s nombre had been Senor Guillermo and the line he crossed had been the invisible border between the US and Mexico, chances are all would have been forgiven. In Maryland it’s almost impossible to be arrested for a mere immigration violation. They’d sooner haul you away for parking tickets.
Border violators confess publicly, hold news conferences and testify before legislative committees, but — like the obscure actor who never got a part — they can’t get arrested in that town.
And if the Obama administration has its way, this de facto amnesty will soon spread nationwide.
It’s ironic that one of the few things this confederacy of incompetents has been able to do is deport illegal aliens. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, Obama’s Secure Communities program has shipped nearly 400,000 illegals south each year, which is 4 percent annually of the 10 million estimated long–term trespassers. Even this sizeable figure does not account for the chain self–deportations of relatives and the intimidated that follow the deportee home of their own free will.
Certainly a program like Secure Communities offends those who are willing to violate their oath of office to put their tribe before the rule of law, like Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D–La Raza). Which is why Obama intends to pull the plug.
The Obamanations are instead planning to “prioritize” deportations. But in reality the only priority is Obama’s re–election campaign. When Barack’s approval rating is in the 40’s, he needs every Hispanic vote that pandering will attract.
Since the administration has not been able to persuade Congress to pass “comprehensive immigration reform” (euphemism to English translation = amnesty), Obama intends to achieve amnesty by ordering the border bureaucracy to do it anyway.
Instead of deporting everyone caught who is here illegally, the administration will drop deportation proceedings if the illegal has been here a long time (each day adding another 24 hours to the original border violation) or is elderly, pregnant, in school, responsible for other family member’s care and has a number of relatives or friends who are potential Democrat voters in 2012.
Which means “catch and release” is no longer limited to fish.
What’s more, the illegals snared by Secure Communities will be allowed to apply for work permits, essentially rewarding them for a long series of bad decisions and thwarting the will of Congress and the majority of Americans.
This is like releasing burglars who steal less than $1,000.00 and helping them start a used electronics business on eBay.
Why obey the law when breaking it gains you a work permit? Unless you’re a citizen burglar with a warrant from another century, like the unfortunate Glenn Wilson, who probably rues the day he wasn’t born a Mexican.

Illegals Continue to Flood America, Small Percentage Being Deported.

In a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, The Justice Departments Chief of The Executive Office for Immigration Review, ( EOIR ) Mr. Juan Osuna outlined the problems of the failures of the United States Department of Homeland Security to prevent the recent floods of illegal immigrants bombarding America today. Since DHS head propagandist, Janet Napolitano says the borders are more secure than ever before today, maybe she should have been made to attend this hearing and explain what was discovered there.  Among the more scathing proof of DHS’ failure and total incompetence is the fact that Mr. Osuna stated that his department now has a current backlog of over 270,000 immigration cases as of end of March of this year, and the projected backlog of cases for 2011 surpassing the 400,00 mark !

 

These facts show us that the border is in fact, not even remotely secure, as there are hundreds of thousands of illegals still flooding the United States every year. When Obama talks about immigration reform, it needs to start with securing the southern borders as simple common sense dictates here. This immigration hearing is detailed here, at  The Center for Immigration Studies website . In in we see the following truths about why Illegals are overrunning America today:

Julie Myers Wood, former Assistant Secretary for ICE, testified that in fiscal year 2010 immigration judges completed an average of 1,300 proceedings per judge, many more than other administrative law judges in other fields and with far fewer law clerk resources to assist them. While Mrs. Wood appeared open to the idea of additional hires and also proposed additional means for internal efficiencies, she explained that internal efficiencies are “insufficient to fully address the existing backlog and expected influx of cases and ensure that the court system operates with some efficiency.” She explained that one goal should be “to reduce the number of cases that must come before immigration courts for full hearings.” One way to achieve this, she explained, is through an expansion of expedited removal, something discussed in an earlier blog. The goal should be to reduce not only inefficiencyin the immigration courts, but also to reduce demand. (emphasis mine)

As the former ICE official explained:

By statute, expedited removal may be utilized for individuals that have been in the country for up to two years. However, the executive branch has not utilized the full statutory authority provided for expedited removal, but instead applied certain arbitrary limitations, including the most recent requirement that the alien be apprehended no more than 100 miles from the border and has spent less than 14 days in the country. There is no reason that the government could not take steps to administratively expand the current use of expedited removal, by, for example, focusing on certain known smuggling routes beyond 100 miles or slightly extending the current time period for eligibility (30 days vs. 14 days, for example). Another alternative would be to apply extended time and range limits for the use of expedited removal for immigrants who are convicted of a crime by state or local law enforcement.

We see that the problem lies within the Justice Department itself, along with Obama’s executive branch, who are applying very radical limitations on the deportation statute. The only way to speed up deportation, according to the Obama puppets blatantly ignoring the rule of law, is for when they are caught near the border and within 14 days of entering the country illegally. That means that all the criminals and other illegal aliens that have snuck into the country to avoid legal immigration laws that have been here undetected for years, are being given hearings and appeals to the point of collapsing the deportation system. This is a page right out of Obama-Hero, Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals handbook on how to collapse our government to effect radical change: AKA Socialism and chaos.

From the same website mentioned above, we see just who actually started this blatant act of treason against American Rule of law, and decided to change how we deport illegals when they were in power:

As written into law, expedited removal applies to illegal aliens apprehended anywhere in the United States, provided the alien has not been continuously physically present in the country for longer than two years. Both the Clinton and G.W. Bush administrations decided to limit the program; Clinton allowed for expedited removal only at a few ports of entry while Bush decided not to use the removal process for Mexican or Canadian aliens. Implementing the program to the full extent of the law could greatly reduce the burden on immigration courts. (emphasis mine)

When we look at the staggering total backlog of over 400,00 illegal alien deportation cases projected for this year alone, we can see that the Obama administration is following along right in G.W.Bush’s footsteps in not deporting illegal aliens. This is truly one time where Bush needs to be blamed for his part in causing the current illegal immigration crisis in America today !  This also leads us to understand why the informed voters and political strategists of America today call G. W. Bush a progressive. Progressives make their living subverting the Rule of law in any way they can to effect radical change. They have taken the bad illegal immigration situation created by Bill Clinton and G.W. Bush, and turned it into a chaotic disaster that is crushing many State budgets and causing a huge division within certain groups of Americans today. Divide and conquer comes to mind there. This is just one blaring example of the cancerous infection hiding behind the innocent sounding words such as, Progress, Social Justice and Civil Rights. This is why we need to stamp out the progressive fake Democratic Party of America once and for all in 2012 and beyond. That includes the Progressives in the Republican party also, such as Bush, McCain, McConnell, Romney, Huckabee, and anyone else who doesn’t want to abide by our immigration laws that say that all illegals will be deported as soon as possible, PERIOD. They are criminals who broke the law when entering this country illegally. They have no rights, except to be put on a bus or plane and be shipped out of America period. No Amnesty,  No excuses, just obey the rule of law !

 

Kicked out of Canada, Jailed in France, Muslim cleric caught being smuggled into U.S

    Pictured is the U S/ Mexico Border station where agents made a surprising discovery when searching the trunk of a Mexican registered BMW.  Inside they found one Mr. Said Jaziri, a native of Tunisia. Mr Jaziri also happens to be a radical Muslim Cleric whom was deported  from Canada in 2007  for “forgetting” to put on his refugee application the small fact that he was  jailed in France for threatening the life of Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard for his drawings of  the profit Mohamaad. I must add here that it is pretty difficult to get yourself deported from Canada these days, no matter the facts. They have a history of leniency towards certain Muslim Clerics/ suspected terrorists, and assorted questionable characters. That leads me to believe there is more to this story than meets the eye. Two reasons  for that statement can be found in an article from the internet news site MailOnline, in an article dated 1/29/2011. *

“He was being held as a material witness in the criminal case against Mr Lawler, who has been charged with immigrant smuggling.”

“Lise Garon, a professor of communications at Laval University in Quebec City, told the Los Angeles Times: ‘His nickname in Quebec was the controversial imam.”

‘I think he was deported because people hated his ideas.’

     Mr. Kenneth Robert Lawler ( Jaziri’s driver) is the person who is actually charged with the crime of immigrant smuggling here. The radical muslim cleric, at the time of  writing this article, is only being held as a “witness.”  Will he be charged with illegal entry to the U.S. ?  Only time will tell. This situation does blow some holes in Janet Napolitano’s recent statements that our border is more secure than ever, and that radical Muslims from far away lands are not illegally crossing into the U.S.A.  via the border with Mexico.

   I must add that I was living in Montreal Canada in 2007 when Mr. Jaziri was said to have been deported because, as Lise Garon (above) stated, people hated his ideas. Montreal has a fairly large and growing population of Muslims, and the last thing Canada would do is deport him soley because people “hated his ideas.” As I stated above, this story is much, much deeper than meets the eye. I will be following it closely to see just what happens to Mr. Jaziri and how the DHS, under Ms. Napolitano deals with him. I also expect CAIR, the Counsel on American-Islamic relations, to get involved real quickly here.

Obama’s Idea of Immigration Enforcement: Whack-a-Mole

Other than suing any state willing to go after illegal immigrants, the White House has done precious little to secure our borders.  Lately, the Obama administration has turned to that age old arcade favorite, “whack-a-mole” for guidance.

The New York Times reports that the current administration has replaced work-place raids with audits.

While the sweeps of the past commonly led to the deportation of such workers, the “silent raids,” as employers call the audits, usually result in the workers being fired, but in many cases they are not deported.

These silent raids come down to a review of company records to ascertain the legitimacy of the workers documentation.  Should a worker’s records come under suspicion, there is no investigation into the worker, the employer is asked to fire them.  That’s it.  No deportation, no criminal prosecution of the employer.. just fire the worker – they then pop-up at another employer with new false documents.  One day a California strawberry picker, next day a Nevada meat packer..

Without substantial penalties to both the employer and worker this amounts to nothing more than forced career changes for illegal aliens (that’s old-speak for undocumented worker).  The NYT article reports an underwhelming sum of $3 Million in fines against businesses that hire illegal aliens.

One sentiment is that at least this approach doesn’t break-up families where the children were born in the U.S. but the parents are here illegally.  Of course, parents following the legal path to entry into the country or ending the practice of bestowing citizenship on anyone born to an illegal alien would also address this issue.

Business owners are also complaining that Americans don’t seem to want the work at the wages they are offering.

Employers say the Obama administration is leaving them short of labor for some low-wage work, conducting silent raids but offering no new legal immigrant laborers in occupations, like farm work, that Americans continue to shun despite the recession. Federal labor officials estimate that more than 60 percent of farm workers in the United States are illegal immigrants.

Of course citizens don’t want those jobs, with minimum wage, overpaid unionized labor and unemployment benefits that last almost two years.. why would they?

Is the program working?  The Times article reports that a school administrator said, “There was no wave of deportations and few families left on their own for Mexico.”.  So what’s the point of all this?  Increasing the voter rolls for the progressives.  By hook or crook, take the election.  Illegal immigrants are a considerable current and future voting block for the lefties.  It’s one reason that the Democrats are doing everything they can to prevent the enforcement of the Motor Voter clean-up clauses.  That would force deceased voters to be removed from the rolls – registrations that tend to show up used by illegal aliens and vote fraudsters.
