Title: Immigration Reform - Throwing Open The Immigration Floodgates
Post by: TahoeBlue on August 16, 2012, 01:01:50 pm
Just in time for the Election....
Undocumented immigrants line up for relief from deportation
By the CNN Wire Staff
updated 7:50 AM EDT, Thu August 16, 2012

(CNN) -- Long lines formed at help centers and lawyers' office across America Wednesday as thousands of young, undocumented immigrants began applying for relief from deportation.
They took advantage of one of the biggest immigration policy changes in years. An executive order by President Barack Obama allows those who entered the country illegally as children to remain and work without fear of deportation for at least two years.
A crowd formed at Chicago's Navy Pier Wednesday to get help from immigration lawyers and fill out forms.
"I feel I am a citizen," she said. "The only thing that is stopping me is a little piece of paper."
The form, titled "Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," was dated August 15, 2012, and bore the expiration date of February 28, 2013.
Alejandro Mayorkas, the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said applicants who have not committed major crimes can apply without fear of deportation.
The forms were made available two months after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that people who arrived in the United States as children may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years subject to renewal, and upon approval would be eligible for work authorization.
As many as 1.7 million youths may qualify for the program, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center.
Dubbed Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the deferral program was created in June under an executive order signed by President Barack Obama.

Obama and Napolitano have called for Congress to pass the DREAM Act, which would put into law similar steps for children of illegal immigrants to continue living and working in the country.
Republicans who blocked Democratic efforts to change immigration laws have condemned the move, with some calling it an improper maneuver to skirt congressional opposition.
Rep. Steve King of Iowa, a GOP foe of Democratic proposals on immigration, threatened in June to sue to stop Obama "from implementing his unconstitutional and unlawful policy."
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has called the decision "a classic Barack Obama move of choosing politics over leadership," while House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, has called the change a "decision to grant amnesty to potentially millions of illegal immigrants."

Others predicted the move will tighten an already poor job market for young Americans.
Presumed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in June that the issue needs more substantive action than an executive order, which can be replaced by a subsequent president.

[ Many of these "youths" are over 18 and are of voting age. .... ]
As many as 1.7 million youths may qualify for the program, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center. To be eligible to apply, you must have arrived in America when you were 16 or younger and must be under 30 now. You must also have lived continuously in the United States for five years and must be currently in school or already graduated from high school or have served in the military. You cannot apply if you have been convicted of a felony or major misdemeanor.

I just heard this AGAIN today ... "Skills Gap" "Competency gap"  BS!
The 'Skills Gap' Myth
By Roger Bybee, March 25, 2013

Corporate America has come up with a clever rationale for the plague of high unemployment. The problem is the “skills gap” between the requirements of modern technology and under-educated workers, they claim.

Our still-deplorable unemployment rate of 7.7% has nothing to do with the defects of the economic system, but on the defects of under-skilled workers, corporate leaders tell us.

This flimsy explanation for persistent unemployment and falling wages is thoroughly dynamited by Prof. Marc Levine’s recent study of the so-called “skills gap.”
Recently, the “skills gap” has become a favorite theme for executives like Caterpillar CEO Douglas Oberhelmer, politicians such as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and establishment-friendly pundits Thomas Friedman of The New York Times and Fareed Zakaria of CNN. They use this “gap” to explain away persistent high unemployment. President Obama, during the fall campaign, also uncritically echoed the complaints of executives about under-skilled workers.
The blame-the-worker mentality lurking behind the “ skills gap” thesis was more explicitly laid out by PIMCO hedge fund owner Bill Gross, who declared, “Our labor force is too expensive and poorly educated for today’s marketplace.”

When we talk about the “skills gap,” we can forget about inequality between the top 1% and working Americans.
... the heads of corporations who enjoyed a record $1.876 trillion in profits in 2012. They also managed to accumulate a record $4.75 trillion in savings, up from  $1.2 trillion in 1995. And, recently, the stock market hit an all-time high.
UNDER-SKILLED OR OVER-QUALIFIED?: A pervasive skills gap would raise the demand for workers with higher skills, as measured in indicators like college degrees. Instead, the percentage of college-degreed workers working in jobs where they are obviously over-qualified—as bartenders and retail clerks—has climbed notably.
FUTURE NEEDS: HIGHEST IN LOW-SKILL AREAS: In stunning contrast to the calls of corporate, political and media elites for a better-educated workforce, forecasts of future needs show an increased demand in occupations that require a high school degree or less.
In this context, the “skills gap” myth plays a vital role in taking the spotlight off corporate decisions and pro-corporate government policies, Levine writes: “There’s a strong ideological component behind the skills gap trope: it diverts attention (and policies) from the deep inequalities and market fundamentalism that created the unemployment crisis, and focuses on a fake skills gap that had nothing to do with the surge in unemployment since 2007.

The “skills gap” narrative, says Levine, diverts public discourse away from “such inconvenient questions as
1) why corporate profits are at record levels while unemployment remains high and wages stagnant;
2) Why U.S. manufacturers invested in less domestic capacity than competitors over the last decade, and
3) How offshoring and other management strategies have devastated the employment base of cities like Milwaukee, and how Wisconsin employment is especially at risk from trade with China and Mexico.”

Levine’s report directly states the inescapable truth which the elites’ mythical “skills gap” seeks to obscure:

“The problem isn’t a malfunctioning ‘talent pipeline;’ the problem is a sputtering job-creation machine, in both the quantity and quality of jobs created.”
The Skills Gap and Unemployment in Wisconsin
Separating Fact From Fiction

Marc V. Levine
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Center for Economic Development
Working Paper
February 2013

There is apparent unanimity among Wisconsin business executives and policymakers that the state faces a “skills gap:” thousands of jobs going
unfilled because too few Wisconsin workers possess the skills, education, and training for them
. This skills mismatch, it is argued, is the central reason why unemployment remains high, even as job vacancies remain unfilled.
Most tellingly, more than three years after the official end of the Great Recession, there remain over three times as many unemployed workers as job openings in the US. Even if every unemployed person were perfectly matched to existing jobs, over 2/3 of all jobless would still be out of work. And this calculation understates the jobs shortage, as it does not include discouraged workers or those involuntarily working part-time.
In fact, Wisconsin suffers from the opposite of a skills gap. The true challenge here is of an economy that generates too few jobs, and a labor
market that is characterized by the underemployment and over-qualification of skilled and educated workers.

The “jobs gap” has created a skills mismatch, all right, but it’s the inverse of the one commonly put forward: it is a mismatch of too many highly educated workers chasing too few “good jobs” in the Wisconsin and Milwaukee labor markets.

There Is a Skills Gap...Just How Big

Monday, 22 Oct 2012
By: Allen Wastler
Managing Editor,

Have you heard about the so-called skills gap?

That's the cute term for the notion that employers have jobs, but just can't find people with the right education or abilities to fill them. (We journalists love cute terms such as "skills gap." Like "fiscal cliff" and "mancession," it's catchy headline shorthand for a pretty serious issue).

Now there's a kind of duel over it. You see, most "skills gap" arguments center on a 2011 survey by the consulting firm Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute. That survey of executives found that the skills gap is responsible for about 600,000 jobs going unfilled.

But last week the Boston Consulting Group said the skills gap is not so bad and that only 80,000 to 100,000 jobs are going unfilled because of it. It's analysis is based on wage and inflation rates around the country. Where wages outstripped local inflation, that's where employers were paying more to get talent.
Skills Gap Causing Losses in Productivity and Revenue in Top Ten World Economies, According to CareerBuilder Survey
Published: Wednesday, 20 Mar 2013

The growing deficit of skilled labor needed to fill in-demand jobs is causing a drag on employers across the globe.

A significant number of employers in the ten largest world economies said that extended job vacancies have resulted in lower revenue and productivity and the inability to grow their businesses.

Employers in China were the most likely to report having open positions they cannot fill and corresponding negative effects on their company performance.

Russia houses the largest percentage of employers reporting a revenue shortfall tied to extended job vacancies while the U.S. is among those most likely to report a productivity loss. Japan ranked high among those who said the inability to find skilled talent has impeded expansion of their businesses.

Immigration Reform 2013: A Critical Pro-Immigrant Bill, the TRUST Act, Gains Traction in California
Johnathen Duran
 2 hours ago

The crowds lined up today, with nearly 100 community members from throughout the state of California, inside the Public Safety committee meeting at the California state capitol. I was in Sacramento today to watch the debate, to hear the pros and cons, and to be astounded at the line of supporters standing up to speak in support of AB4, the Trust Act, as it went through committee review.
Assembly Bill 4 (AB4), the Trust Act seeks to prohibit "law enforcement officers from detaining an individual on the basis of a United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) hold after that person becomes eligible for release from criminal custody, unless certain conditions are met."

Those conditions merely mean to hold the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and ICE to the standards they set forth when S-Comm was developed. To date, under guise of seeking to detain and deport serious or violent offenders, 72,694 Californians have been deported. 70% of those are "people without criminal records, including victims of domestic violence, or people charged with lesser offenses."
Governor Brown vetoed similar legislation last year, citing the exclusion of certain serious crimes from the list of deportable crimes. Such concerns have been addressed in the current bill and the author has high hopes of it passing this year.

Immigration Reform 2013: Gang Of 8 Close to a Finished Bill
William Smith
 2 days ago

Four Democratic and four Republican Senators, including John McCain (R-Ariz.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) — the so-called “Gang of Eight” — have been working tirelessly over the past several months in order to hash out a compromise and create a bill reforming the country’s immigration policy. Of all the major issues facing the country, immigration is a notoriously difficult one, as it involves views on highly emotional concepts such as fairness, opportunity, and concerns about national identity and culture.
The senators may have reached some agreements, but they readily acknowledge that the road to reform will be fraught with challenge. Both McCain and Schumer spoke to the likelihood that there will be future disagreement and disappointment with the bill, whether it occurs on the Hill or among the citizenry in general. Over the next few months, the bill will continue to be revised and challenged, but hopefully the end result will not sacrifice fairness and opportunity in the name of feasibility.

Thousands march in Miami for immigration reform

Miami’s mayor and the Catholic archbishop joined more that 2,000 demonstrators who called for immigration reform at a rally and a march through the city’s downtown.

More than 2,000 people marched through downtown Miami on Saturday urging Congress and President Barack Obama to speed up enactment of an immigration reform law to legalize millions of undocumented immigrants in the country.

 “We don’t want any more blah-blah-blah, we want immigration reform now,” community organizer Francisco Portillo of Miami-based Francisco Morazán Honduran Organization told a rally before the march set out from Little Havana’s José Martí Park.

 “Residence yes, deportation no!,” added another rally speaker, Marleine Bastien of Fanm Ayisyen Nan Miyami (Haitian Women of Miami).

The crowd responded with chants of “Stop Deportations!” and “Immigration Reform Now!”

Immigration Reform 2013: Latinos Preparing to March on Washington in Hopes of Pushing Congress to Reform Immigration
By Jean-Paul Salamanca | First Posted: Apr 09, 2013 11:33 AM EDT
While the bipartisan U.S. Senate panel known as the "Gang of Eight" are working on a comprehensive immigration reform bill--which some members expect to be ready for a public reveal as soon as this week--immigrant rights groups are organizing tens of thousands of people to rally in the nation's capital in order to keep the pressure on Congress to pass a bill.

Kica Matos, director of immigrant rights and racial justice for the Center for Community Change, said Monday that immigration groups were hopeful that the bill would be ready by now, but the panel keeps dragging its feet, and it's April and there's no bill."
However, she added, "there's something to be said for the power of having tens of thousands of bodies all coming together for a common interest."
"I'm not sure we are going to see the numbers we saw in 2006, because it's harder to get people out on the streets in favor of something," said University of California Riverside professor Karthick Ramakrishnan, who studies the politics of immigration.

Rivers and Walls from the Sonoran Desert to the Rio Grande
Posted by Scott Nicol
Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Running walls through rivers is an absurd idea, but Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has built them, again and again, along the U.S. – Mexico border.  The Borderlands Team visited a few, at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, during our 2012 team meeting in southern Arizona.
Standing in the Sonoran desert I thought of home, in south Texas, where CBP has been given the green light to build walls in the flood plain of the Rio Grande.

The team was shown the gates, many of which stood open, and the repaired border wall.  Some of the gates had not been opened, and debris was collecting at their base as tall clouds heralding this year’s storms roiled overhead.
After two days of meetings in Tucson the Borderlands Team visited the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area.  The San Pedro is the last undammed river in southern Arizona, and was the focus of a court challenge to the border wall in 2007. When a federal judge granted Defenders of Wildlife and the Sierra Club’s request for a temporary restraining order halting construction, the Secretary of Homeland Security used the Real ID Act to waive the laws that the border wall would violate.

Oh now I see why they were bringing this up - This was in prelude to 
Zuckerberg and Silicon Valley leaders launch immigration reform group
Zuckerberg says America's current system is 'unfit for today's world' and wants to push for immigration reform

This year demand for skilled-worker visas, known as H-1Bs, outstripped the entire year's supply in the first week that companies were allowed to file applications.

US Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency that processes applications, said earlier this month that it had already received more than 65,000 H-1B applications, the congressionally mandated limit. Application for the 20,000 visas allocated to foreign nationals with advanced degrees from US universities also exceeded supply in a few days.

Daniel Costa, immigration policy analyst at the Economic Policy Institute, said reform was needed but granting more H-1B visas as they stand was not the answer. A recent EPI study found all the top 10 firms applying for H-1B visas were outsourcing firms. Costa pointed to a 2011 study by the Government Accountability Office that showed most of the visa go to workers hired for mid-level information technology positions such as systems analysts or programmers who are then paid less than their US counterpartsb].

James T. Brett: Immigration bill must address skills gap
April 10, 2013 4:58 pm

After years of debate and discussion about the need to update our nation's immigration system, the issue is finally on the front burner on Capitol Hill; comprehensive reform is on the horizon in 2013. From a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens to border security, there are some challenging issues that our leaders in Washington must tackle.

There is, however, an additional issue that any comprehensive immigration reform plan should also address: the shortage of educated, highly skilled workers in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields.

The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that STEM jobs will grow by 17 percent in 2008-2018, compared with just 9.8 percent growth in non-STEM jobs. However, at the current pace, the U.S. simply will not produce enough workers to fill the jobs.

This skills gap threatens not only U.S. economic growth, but also its ability to compete globally. Take engineering: In 2008, a mere 4 percent of all bachelor's degrees in the U.S. were awarded in engineering, compared to 31 percent in China.

The I-Squared bill also recognizes the need for a longer-term solution to the STEM skills gap and the importance of developing a domestic pipeline of U.S.-born workers with advanced skills and training. To that end, the legislation reallocates the fees collected from H1-B visas and STEM green cards fees to fund a grant program to promote STEM education and worker retraining to be administered by the states.

The I-Squared Bill has won the support of businesses large and small as well as immigration advocates, and its sponsors on both sides of the aisle are working to have its provisions included in any comprehensive immigration reform plan that moves forward.
Plan to hike H-1B cap to 300,000 seen dead; 130,000 cap still possible

Senate bill could impose large fees for big H-1B visa users, sources say

By Patrick Thibodeau

March 22, 2013 06:04 AM ET

Computerworld - The U.S. Senate's comprehensive immigration bill is expected to include an H-1B cap hike and a higher fee structure aimed at offshore outsourcers.
Work on the bill is continuing, and a snapshot of its various components were shared by three independent sources, each familiar with the discussions.
The eight senator-team, led by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), working on the comprehensive bill has rejected the graduated 300,000 cap proposed in the so-called I-Squared Act introduced earlier this year by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Chris Coons (D-Del.).
Instead, the legislation may seek to double the current 65,000 H-1B cap, or to set it in the low 100,000-range.
It's less certain how the Senators will treat a separate cap of 20,000 for advanced degree STEM graduates because of a plan to offer them permanent residency.
The bill may call for increasing fees for large H-1B users. The increased fees would be an alternative to today's so-called 50/50 provision, which limits the number of visas available to a company to half of its workforce.

Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill), part of the Senate group developing the comprehensive immigration, and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) have been the major proponents of thethe 50/50 provision. This new plan includes a graduated fee structure that sets higher H-1B fees once IT services providers hit certain thresholds.
For instance, if more than 30% of a firm's U.S. workforce holds a visa, they may pay a higher visa fee than firms with fewer visa holders.
Offshore outsourcers, mostly located overseas, are the largest users of H-1B visas and may bear the greatest impact, depending on how bill is written.
The bill is expected to include unlimited green cards for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) advance degree holders. It would likely set restrictions on eligible schools, similar to a House bill that limits eligible green card candidates to advanced degree STEM graduates from research universities.
The tech industry has been pushing for the provisions in the I-Squared Act, but there is much hesitancy among lawmakers about H-1B visas, and much more support for a STEM green card.

I-Squared is common sense immigration reform, meets nation's needs
By Former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) - 04/11/13 08:00 AM ET

A recent survey of over 1,100 manufacturing executives by the National Association of Manufacturers’ Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte shows that 67 percent of manufacturing companies face a “moderate to severe” shortage of qualified workers. Four major high-tech companies – IBM, Intel, Microsoft and Oracle – say they have a combined 10,000 job openings in the United States alone. In Congressional testimony, Rick Stephens, senior vice president at Boeing, related that fewer than 5 percent of graduates from American colleges and universities attain engineering degrees, compared with about 20 percent in Asia.

This decade, there is a need in the United States to fill 1.2 million jobs in computing professions that require a bachelor’s degree. But at the current pace American colleges will not matriculate even half the number of American graduates needed to fill those positions. Unfortunately, this skills gap is making it hard for American companies to hire the employees they need to keep innovating, creating more jobs, and growing their businesses in the U.S.

Skilled, foreign professionals are net job creators for the United States. Immigrants with employment-based green cards and H-1B visas in the STEM fields – science, technology, engineering, and applied mathematics disciplines – are not taking jobs from Americans. There are tens of thousands of unfilled jobs in STEM sectors, even while our unemployment numbers are high.

Blah blah blah

About 45 people from Good Jobs Now rally Wednesday outside the Homeland Security office in Detroit, urging reform on immigration laws. (Daniel Mears / The Detroit News)

Detroit — A few dozen members of a coalition of concerned citizens held a brief rally outside a Homeland Security office Wednesday in support of sweeping immigration reform being considered in Congress.
Demonstrators, mostly African-Americans, said lawmakers in Washington have the power to end what some referred to as modern-day slavery if they vote to approve a path to citizenship for immigrants who live in the U.S. illegally.
"They are working here on little to nothing; they're being used," activist Terri Jeffery of Detroit said of the 11 million immigrants illegally in the country.
Jeffery said once immigrants are more easily allowed to obtain legal residency, wages for all will be more even-keeled.

I'm going to add my two cents to this so-called "skills gap" drivel: back in 2000, I got hired (at $6.54/hr.) as a "paraprofessional" (teacher aide); now, I cannot get hired, even though I possess an Associates Degree-because now, you see, New York State has decided that I now need an associates degree in Child Development-so, now there's younger graduates who possess Bachelor Degrees and certifications in Teaching who are being hired for these low paying jobs at schools (going wage in this area of NYS is $7.54/hr.); the districts make out, because they get a BA degreed employee who could very well substitute as a teacher, or, work as a teacher aide (two-for-one deal) AND, the districts trim the number of hours from the job from a full school day (6 hrs, usually) to 5.75 hrs a day, thus making the job a part-time job that doesn't require the district to provide any kinds of benefits; the people going into debt getting that associates degree in Child Development are aced out. I've read numerous reports about people having degrees (Bachelors & Masters & Doctorates) who are unable to obtain full time employment & some of them are finding out that these jobs are being filled with foreigners who will accept lower salaries.Just another back-door way for the globalists to make our society more divided into the haves & have-nots.

Immigrant Skills Gap Grows
By Mark Krikorian
June 10, 2011 9:33 A.M.


And even at the high end, immigrants serve as cheap labor. Tara Bahrampour, the Post reporter, ended her story with a telling quote:

Some employers may say they prefer immigrants to native-born workers. When Samir Kumar needs to hire employees for his Northern Virginia-based IT business, he often looks overseas. Not only do workers from India and Ukraine have the required training, but their expectations are lower, he said.

“They actually don’t demand a very high amount of salary, and the expectations are kind of grounded and they don’t jump around so much” between companies, said the 39-year-old Ashburn resident, an immigrant from India. U.S.-born technology and business analysts are hard to find and hard to retain, he said, while immigrants with the same skills and education “are much easier to manage.”
Hmmm — “don’t demand a very high amount of salary,” “don’t jump around so much,” “much easier to manage”. Employers will always want cheap, docile labor, whatever the industry, and if Americans aren’t cheap enough or obedient enough, then they’ll demand Congress supply them with foreigners who are.

The question is why we would agree to that.

California Farm Labor Shortage 'Worst It's Been, Ever'

There's a different sort of drought plaguing California, the nation's largest farm state. It's $38 billion agricultural sector is facing a scarcity of labor.

"This year is the worst it's been, ever," said Craig Underwood, who farms everything from strawberries to lemons to peppers, carrots, and turnips in Ventura County.

Some crops aren't get picked this season due to a lack of workers.

"We just left them in the field," he said.

The Western Growers Association told CNBC its members are reporting a 20 percent drop in laborers this year. Stronger border controls are keeping workers from crossing into the U.S. illegally, and the current guest worker program is not providing enough bodies. (Related: Massive US Drought Leads to Worst Fears for Corn Crop.)
Growers of California's wine grapes are concerned there won't be enough pickers for this fall's harvest. Berry growers — among the highest paying — saw fewer field hands show up in the spring.

"Fruit that you should be picking is not being picked," said grower John Eiskamp.

Most pickers in California are not here legally, a fact of life for decades.
While standing in a field of peppers, Underwood realizes even if he doesn't have enough labor to pick his crop, Americans will still have food.

08/01/2012 06:06:22 PM PDT
California farmers warned for years of a future without enough skilled pickers and packers, of fruits and vegetables rotting in place. Critics accused them of crying wolf to win sympathy for relaxing labor and immigration rules.

Labor shortage doesn’t improve pay for many farmworkers
 Published: April 3, 2013

OXNARD— Ana Rosa Perez emigrated from central Mexico to work in Oxnard’s strawberry fields more than 10 years ago. She remembers she was excited about earning a steady income to feed her young son.

Since then, she has endured long hours picking strawberries, often under an extreme California summer heat. On some occasions, she has taken home $30 a day, hardly enough to pay for the bedroom she rents for $500 in a private home.

Now, her son, a high school senior who is fluent in English and Spanish, aspires to secure employment outside agriculture—a trend among a younger generation of immigrants and U.S.-born children who have seen their parents toil in California’s billion-dollar agriculture industry while living in poverty.
As Congress inches toward reshaping immigration laws, few agree on what measures should be included in an overhaul. Citing a sharp labor shortage, farmers and ranchers in California—one of the largest farm states in the nation—say a short supply of field workers is hurting their businesses. They are aggressively lobbying Congress for agricultural work visas.
Some immigrant advocates have a message for these employers: raise wages.

“In any other industry, when employers confront labor shortages, they raise their salaries and take pains to make their jobs more attractive to potential and current workers,” Farmworker Justice President Bruce Goldstein wrote in a recent opinion piece. “If they can’t compete on that basis, something is wrong with their business model.”
Increased mechanization, market downturns, the rise of agro-businesses and trade policies such as the North America Free Trade Agreement have transformed the landscape of agriculture.

To reduce the price of labor, for instance, some producers have moved jobs abroad, making it harder for U.S. farmers to compete when those products are trucked back into the country. American farmers unable to compete with Mexican-grown asparagus, which can sell more cheaply, simply stopped growing it.

According to an ABC News report, senators from the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” pushing immigration reform are expected to drop their bill, estimated at around 1,500 pages, on Tuesday, mere hours before the only scheduled Senate hearing on the topic.
will put forth a bill that includes a pathway to citizenship for many of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.”
If the Senators actually do wait until Tuesday to roll out their lengthy proposed overhaul of the U.S. immigration system, that will give members of the Senate Judiciary Committee less than a full day to read it before the only Senate hearing on the topic. Despite ardent pleas from Senate conservatives, including ranking Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chuck Grassley, the committee’s chairman, Sen. Pat Leahy, has only agreed to one hearing on the legislation
 there are multiple reports that keep surfacing indicating that the Gang of Eight will band together to block amendments to their bill.

Unveiling Immigration Measure, Senators Seek Distance From Effort on Guns
Published: April 18, 2013

WASHINGTON — It was drafted by a bipartisan Senate coalition, has the strong backing of the White House and activist groups, and draws on deep public support from those who see it as helping to solve one of the nation’s most difficult problems.

But advocates of the Senate’s new immigration proposal say it differs in many respects from the gun control legislation defeated this week, despite surface similarities that illustrate how a measure with substantial advantages and widespread backing can still founder on Capitol Hill. On Thursday, they formally began seeking support for the proposal from the public and Congressional colleagues
Asked why the group expected it to fare better, one member, Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, turned and pointed to what he called “one compelling reason” — the assembled crowd of nearly two dozen supporters behind him.

“When you look at the representatives of business, labor, the religious community, Hispanic community — across the board — this is a coalition,” he said. “This is why we will succeed, because of this broad-based, dedicated support for this legislation.”

Mr. McCain joked, “I never thought I’d be standing with Richard Trumka,” referring to the president of the A.F.L.-C.I.O., the nation’s largest federation of unions.
In some ways, the failure of gun legislation could ultimately work in the favor of an immigration overhaul. On Thursday, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told gun control advocates that several senators had told him they could not vote to support both gun control and immigration: they had the political bandwidth for only one tough vote.
Immigration bill contains 400 waivers, exceptions and exemptions
The complexity has already sparked GOP objections from Sen. Jeff Sessions and other Republicans who say they should be given more time to study and then explain the bill’s myriad complexities and loopholes to the public.
Gang Of 8 Champion Plan, Declare 'Year Of Immigration Reform'
by Liz Halloran
April 18, 2013 2:47 PM

Bipartisan bonhomie broke out Thursday afternoon when four Democratic and four Republican senators made a case for their comprehensive immigration overhaul proposal.

The scene at the Dirksen Senate Office Building stood in marked contrast to the ugly end Wednesday of a smaller cross-party effort to fashion gun legislation that would have expanded background checks and banned assault-style weapons.

"I think 2013 is the year of immigration reform," said GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who, with the other senators, stood in front of representatives of a diverse coalition — from the AFL-CIO to the Chamber of Commerce — that has gotten behind overhaul efforts.

"America is an idea; nobody owns it," Graham said. "We've got to create order out of chaos."

or is it "We've got to create chaos out of order ."


The "Gang of Eight" senators hold a news conference on Capitol Hill on Thursday to discuss their immigration overhaul bill. The senators, from left, are Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Richard Durbin, D-Ill., John McCain, R-Ariz., Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Robert Menendez, D-N.J., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo.

Immigration Bill Opposition Building Among Conservatives
Posted: 04/18/2013 12:03 pm EDT  |  Updated: 04/19/2013 11:32 am EDT

Rubio, the Republican Florida senator who is spearheading outreach to the Republican base and to conservative talk radio hosts, was unable to persuade one of the top radio figures on the right to support the Senate's immigration reform effort when he appeared on The Mark Levin Show Wednesday night.

Levin, a former Reagan administration official, was pleasant and polite with Rubio during his 17-minute interview with the senator. But his skepticism was clear, and he referred to undocumented immigrants as "illegal aliens." On Thursday morning, he made his opposition to the Senate effort official. Levin posted a note on his Facebook page that said, "Count me out: the border is NOT secured and Obama cannot be trusted, period."

Levin linked to a site that referred to Rubio as a "slick used car salesman." Levin said later Thursday morning that he wished he had not linked to the site criticizing Rubio.

"While I oppose the immigration bill, given the border-security issue and Obama's record of non-enforcement, among other things, I regret linking to a post that refers to Senator Rubio as a slick used car salesman," Levin wrote. "He is earnest and thoughtful and deserves much better. He loves his country and means well, unlike too many politicians. There are slick used car salesmen on Capitol Hill, many come to mind, but Rubio is certainly not one of them."

But he's not the only one. Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint, a former South Carolina senator who is a friend of Rubio's and was instrumental in helping Rubio get elected in 2010, posted an op-ed Thursday explaining why he thinks the Senate bill that Rubio is pushing is "flawed."

DeMint foisted the term "amnesty" -- the one-word wrecking ball that killed the 2007 immigration reform effort -- on the immigration reform legislation introduced by the Senate's "gang of eight" this week.

"After decades of empty promises on immigration enforcement, Congress simply lacks credibility to keep its promises," DeMint said, describing the Senate bill as "immediate amnesty in the form of provisional status within months and lofty promises of 'strategies' and 'plans' for enforcement years later."

DeMint decried the creation of a comprehensive bill, and said Congress should "debate and develop understandable reforms in a transparent step-by-step process that addresses all of the immigration issues." With that language, DeMint appears to have given himself some wiggle room to support a bill in Congress this year, but not a lot.

Many Republicans see passing an immigration reform bill as crucial to the party's electoral future, given the horrid state of their relationship with Latino voters. But conservatives like DeMint and Levin are not persuaded by that argument.

Immigration bill to bring in at least 33 million people, says group

The pending Senate immigration bill would bring a minimum of 33 million people into the country during its first decade of operation, according to an analysis by NumbersUSA, a group that wants to slow the current immigration rate.
By 2024, the inflow would include an estimated 9.2 million illegal immigrants, plus 2.5 million illegals who arrived as children — dubbed ‘Dreamers’ — plus roughly 3.4 million company-sponsored employees with university degrees, said the unreleased analysis.
The majority of the inflow, or roughly 17 million people, would consist of family members of illegals, recent immigrants and of company-sponsored workers, according to the NumbersUSA analysis provided to The Daily Caller

The current population of the United States is 314 million. That estimate includes roughly 40 million immigrants, both legal and illegal.
Opponents of the immigration bill are already highlighting the potentially large inflow.
I believe the interest that needs to be protected is the national interest of the United States, and that includes existing workers today, workers whose wages have been pulled down, without doubt, by a large flow of… low-wage labor into the country,” Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions said during one of three hearings on the pending bill.

NumbersUSA’ said that its estimates of a 33 million inflow “are conservative … [because they do] not attempt to project increases in these categories that are certain to occur in future years,” once many of the new immigrants seek green cards for their overseas relatives.


The pending bill allows illegal immigrants to bring their overseas spouses and children into the country, says the NumbersUSA report. If that provision is implemented, “it could more than double the [illegal immigrant inflow] number shown in the chart,” bringing the total inflow to 40 million by 2024, it said.

The analysis shows an inflow of roughly 3.4 million university trained immigrants. That estimate does not include graduates who get green cards under the family unification route, or the uncapped inflow of doctors and PhD-carrying scientists.

Obama to pitch immigration overhaul in Mexico
May 2, 3:03 AM (ET)


WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is headed to Mexico with a domestic ambition at the top of his travel agenda. To sell his immigration overhaul back home, he needs a growing economy in Mexico and a Mexican president willing to help him secure the border.

Obama was to fly to Mexico City on Thursday to meet with President Enrique Pena Nieto, eager to promote Mexico's economic success and the neighboring country's place as the second largest export market for U.S. goods and services. Mexicans will be hanging on the president's words, but Obama also has in mind an important audience back in the United States.

Though the role played by Latino voters in last year's U.S. presidential election gets much credit for the current momentum for changing immigration laws and providing a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally, another reason for the change in attitudes is that stronger border protections and the recession have been disincentives to cross into the U.S. As a result, illegal immigration has declined.

CBS: Illegals Entering US Triple With Talk of Immigration Reform

Migrants Illegals ride on top of a northern bound train toward the U.S.-Mexico border in Ixtepec, in Oaxaca, southern Mexico.

Arrests of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States have nearly tripled in recent months in anticipation of Congressional efforts to enact comprehensive immigration legislation, border patrol agents told CBS News Wednesday.

“Once the first group gets across, they call their family, they call their friends and let them know, ‘Hey the time is right, come on over,’” Border Patrol agent and union representative Chris Cabrera told CBS News.

In March, 7,500 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, which includes McAllen, Cabrera told CBS News. That’s up from 2,800 in January.

n February, nearly 4,800 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande, the local news website The reports.

In fact, agents in McAllen used their station’s carport to process nearly 900 illegals caught over three days in March, according to the

Border Patrol agents have become so concerned about overcrowding and unsanitary conditions that they’ve complained to local and federal officials, the reports.

Many illegals are caught while traveling through the brush between Hidalgo and Sullivan City in Texas, a winding 30-mile stretch of the Rio Grande.

It’s popular with immigrants, who speed across the Rio Grande and assimilate into the small towns along the border, the reports.

Immigration into the United States had been slowing during the recession.

But, CBS says, hopes of gaining citizenship under new legislation and a rebounding U.S. economy are fueling the fresh migration.

The CBS report included surveillance video showing more than 40 men, women and children crossing the border illegally from Mexico during the night.

Some of the illegals come from as far away as Brazil, Cabrera told CBS.

“The people in Washington think they have this idea that the border is safe, the border is secure,” the Border Patrol agent said. “I think they need to come down here and take a look.”

Stats show surge in illegal immigrant border traffic despite Napolitano claims
By William La Jeunesse
Published April 05, 2013

Newly released arrest numbers show a significant increase in illegal immigrants crossing along the southwest border, despite claims as recently as Thursday by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano that the border is more secure.
"I can tell you having worked that border for 20 years, it is more secure now than it has ever been. Illegal apprehensions are at 40-year lows," Napolitano told reporters this week in Houston.
But figures released Thursday by Customs and Border Protection to Fox News tell a different story.
Arrests are actually up 13 percent compared with the same time last year. The number was 170,223 in 2012, and is 192,298 this year.  
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, reacting to those numbers, questioned Napolitano's insistence that the border is becoming more secure.
"There is no statistic, metric or evidence that the border is more secure than ever. I went out there for a couple days and found multiple spots where you can see trails of people coming in. They were still apprehending massive amounts of drugs out there, this is a very porous border," Chaffetz said.
Illegal Immigrant Apprehended at Border: ‘Obama’s Gonna Let Me Go’
Apr. 12, 2013 2:01pm

It seems even illegal immigrants seeking to cross over the U.S.-Mexico border are following the current immigration debate. Linda Vickers, who owns a ranch in Brooks County, Texas, told WOAI that she witnessed one man being arrested on her ranch and that he told the border agent Obama would let him go.
“The Border Patrol agent was loading one man up, and he told the officer in Spanish, ‘Obama’s gonna let me go’,” Vickers said.
Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents report that some immigrants will even ask, “Where do I go for my amnesty?” while they are surrendering.
“When you have amnesty waving in the wind, you’re going to get an increase,” Vickers says. “And when you get an increase, especially with this heat, you’re going to get an increase in deaths.”
She told WOAI that the current uptick in illegal immigration began last summer, implying that it directly comports with President Obama’s plans to forgo deportation of young people who came to the U.S. as children
Citizen Group Documents Flood of Illegals Crossing Border Into US
 Posted on April 15, 2013 by Dave Jolly

President Barack Obama continues to tell America that our borders are safer now than they have been in years.  The Gang of Eight group of US Senators recently visited one of the most secure sections of the border and then headed back to Washington DC to push their massive immigration reform bill through Congress as fast as possible.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has toured the border and reported seeing drug cartels on the Mexican side of the border just waiting to cross over into the US.  She has repeatedly invited President Obama to come and see for himself how unsecure the border is, but he’s not only been a no show, but he hasn’t even had the courtesy to contact her to say he is unable to accept her offer.
Ranchers along the border also have reported the prolific traffic of illegal aliens and drug traffickers, but their reports are being ignored by the Obama administration and Congress.  Now a group of concerned citizens called Secure Border Intelligence have released video and audio documenting the flood of illegal traffic flowing into the state of Arizona.  It seems the promise of amnesty and citizenship is drawing more illegals like bugs to a light bulb at night

In order to disseminate the evidence for the flood of illegals pouring into the county, SBI not only posts updates and evidence on their website, but they make the material available to anyone to use and post without any restriction other than giving them credit.  I would recommend that every one of you should copy the link to the SBI website and send it to President Obama along with your Senator and Representative and tell them not to approve the current immigration bill that is being forced down our throats like they did with Obamacare and the Stimulus packages

DHS Watchdog Indicted for Covering Up Illegal Alien, Drug Smuggling
 April 11, 2013

In a case that’s rocked the beleaguered Department of Homeland Security (DHS), two officials assigned to crackdown on corruption at the agency have been indicted for ordering the falsification of records—including active criminal probes—to obstruct an investigation into crooked federal agents.

The case comes out of Texas and it is quite serious. A special agent in charge of DHS’s Office of Inspector General (OIG), Eugenio Pedraza, directed agents to engage in a scheme to falsify documents in open criminal investigative case files, including numerous probes in which DHS employees were suspected of participating in the illegal smuggling of undocumented aliens and/or narcotics into the United States.
The cover up is believed to have affected at least seven investigations into Customs and Border Protection officers and Border Patrol agents (both are DHS agencies) accused of taking bribes to allow drug shipments and illegal immigrants through ports of entry in the U.S. between 2009 and 2011. Pedraza was trying to conceal severe lapses in the field office, including the deficient investigative standards of the OIG he ran, according to federal authorities.
Additionally, authorities say Pedraza was trying to cover up his failure to provide his subordinates with adequate training and supervision and his failure to ensure the FBI was being appropriately notified of inspector general investigations. This is how the plan worked, according to the feds; at Pedraza’s direction, DHS employees created and placed into investigative files backdated memoranda of activity that falsely reflected investigations that never occurred; worksheets that falsely reflected supervisory case reviews by Pedraza with his agents and backdated, unsent letters were signed by Pedraza that purported to inform the FBI of an inspector general probe.

Illegal aliens bypass U.S. border agents via Indian reservations: GAO
immigration enforcement
April 7, 2013
By: Jim Kouri

Foreign nationals seeking to enter the United States illegally have been known to avoid Border Patrol screening procedures by surreptitiously crossing into areas between these ports of entry, including Indian reservations, many of which have been vulnerable to illicit cross-border threat activity, such as drug smuggling, according to the Department of Homeland Security officials in a report released on Friday.
On April 5, the GAO released a public version of what officials termed "a sensitive report" that GAO issued. Information that DHS, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of the Interior (DOI) deemed sensitive was redacted, according to GAO officials.

According to the redacted report, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is coordinating in a variety of ways with Indian tribes, "such as through joint operations and shared facilities and Operation Stonegarden --a DHS grant program intended to enhance coordination among local, tribal, territorial, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in securing United States borders
Ground Zero: The Tohono O'odham Nation
The presence of Border Patrol on the Nation is buzzing, entrenched, and now apparently expanding. Now besides the flow of agents from Casa Grande and Tucson stations, the Border Patrol has undertaken a massive expansion of the Ajo station, a 52,900 square-foot state-of-the-art facility. This greatly contrasts with the many aging buildings in the economically-depressed area which previously relied on now barely-functioning mines, another economic model that marginalized and exploited the Tohono O’odham, who were the lowest rung of a racially-segregated wage hierarchy (whites were at the top). You can almost see the tailings of the former copper mine in Ajo (closed in 1985) from the Border Patrol station in Why, an uneasy symbol of one economy replacing another.

Study pegs cost of immigration bill’s mass legalization at $6.3 trillion
 Published May 06, 2013

The comprehensive immigration overhaul being taken up in the Senate this week could cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion if 11 million illegal immigrants are granted legal status, according to a long-awaited estimate by the conservative Heritage Foundation.
The cost would arise from illegal immigrants tapping into the government's vast network of benefits and services, many of which are currently unavailable to them. This includes everything from standard benefits like Social Security and Medicare to dozens of welfare programs ranging from housing assistance to food stamps.
The report was obtained in advance by Fox News.

Our Melting Pot: A California Perspective on the Generational Divide Over Immigration

California, it turns out, is diverse even within its diversity, at least judging by newly available immigration data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

In Shasta, Mendocino, Tuolumne, and many other counties, the percent of residents who are foreign born is a tiny fraction of the overall population, adults or kids. But in other counties – Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara –
nearly half (or more) of residents in some age groups are foreign born.


In 1970, for example, less than 5 percent of the country was foreign born.

Pecentage foreign born:

1 California 26.2%
2 New York 20.4%
3 Hawaii  17.5%
4 New Jersey 17.5%
5 Florida 16.7%
6 Nevada  15.8%
7 Texas 13.9%
8 Arizona 12.8%
9 Illinois 12.3%
10 Massachusetts  12.2%

Immigrant Children in the United States Are Growing in Number And Facing Substantial Economic Hardship

New York, N.Y. — The National Center for Children in Poverty reports that the foreign-born population in the United States has increased 57 percent since 1990 to a total of 30 million.

In 2000, one out of every five children under age 18 in the United States was estimated to have at least one foreign-born parent, and one in four children had at least one foreign-born parent.

According to the report, empirical evidence on immigration and inequality suggests that many more recent immigrants will remain economically disadvantaged throughout their working lives, and this disadvantage may be partly transmitted to their children.

Findings from the report include:

Immigrant children are twice as likely to be poor as native-born children.
Among children whose parents work full time, immigrant children are at greater risk of living in poverty than native-born children.
Among children whose parents have more than a high school education, immigrant children are twice as likely to be poor as native-born children.
Among children living in two-parent families, immigrant children are almost four times as likely to be poor as native-born children.

“First-generation immigrant children are more likely to live with full-time working parents and two-parent families than third- or later-generation children,” concludes Hsien-Hen Lu, PhD, one of the lead authors of the study. “Nonetheless, first-generation immigrant children are twice as likely to be poor as third- or later-generation children. For children living with fulltime working parents or in two-parent families, first generation children are four times as likely to be poor as third- or later-generation children.”

Unauthorized Immigrants and Their U.S.-Born Children
by Jeffrey Passel and Paul Taylor

I. Overview
An estimated 340,000 of the 4.3 million babies born in the United States in 2008 were the offspring of unauthorized immigrants, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data by the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center.
Unauthorized immigrants comprise slightly more than 4% of the adult population of the U.S., but because they are relatively young and have high birthrates, their children make up a much larger share of both the newborn population (8%) and the child population (7% of those younger than age 18) in this country.


Recent Trends in Immigration
Figure 1 reports the number of immigrants living in the United States based on the CPS collected in March of each year from 1995 through 2007. Again, the CPS does not include persons in group quarters. The figure shows that between March 1995 and March 2000, the foreign-born population grew by 5.7 million, or about 1.1 million a year.5 The figure also shows that between 2000 and 2007 the immigrant population grew 7.3 million, or 1.04 million a year. These two numbers are the same statistically

These are people we want as new citizens?

Travel Warnings are issued when long-term, protracted conditions that make a country dangerous or unstable lead the State Department to recommend that Americans avoid or consider the risk of travel to that country. A Travel Warning is also issued when the U.S. Government's ability to assist American citizens is constrained due to the closure of an embassy or consulate or because of a drawdown of its staff. The countries listed below meet those criteria.

Colombia    04/11/2013
El Salvador 01/23/2013
Honduras   11/21/2012

Mexico   11/20/2012

Mexico November 20, 2012

The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens about the security situation in Mexico.  General information on the overall security situation is provided immediately below.  For information on security conditions in specific regions of Mexico, which can vary, travelers should reference the state-by-state assessments further below.

This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning for Mexico dated February 8, 2012 to consolidate and update information about the security situation and to advise the public of additional restrictions on the travel of U.S. government (USG) personnel.
General Conditions:

Millions of U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year for study, tourism, and business, including more than 150,000 who cross the border every day.  The Mexican government makes a considerable effort to protect U.S. citizens and other visitors to major tourist destinations, and there is no evidence that Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) have targeted U.S. visitors and residents based on their nationality.  Resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico generally do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime reported in the border region and in areas along major trafficking routes.

Nevertheless, U.S. travelers should be aware that the Mexican government has been engaged in an extensive effort to counter TCOs which engage in narcotics trafficking and other unlawful activities throughout Mexico.  The TCOs themselves are engaged in a violent struggle to control drug trafficking routes and other criminal activity.  As a result, crime and violence are serious problems throughout the country and can occur anywhere.  U.S. citizens have fallen victim to TCO activity, including homicide, gun battles, kidnapping, carjacking and highway robbery.  

According to the statistics last published by the Mexican government in late 2011, 47,515 people were killed in narcotics-related violence in Mexico between December 1, 2006 and September 30, 2011, with 12,903 narcotics-related homicides in the first nine months of 2011 alone.  While most of those killed in narcotics-related violence have been members of TCOs, innocent persons have also been killed.  

The number of U.S. citizens reported to the Department of State as murdered under all circumstances in Mexico was 113 in 2011 and 32 in the first six months of 2012.

Gun battles between rival TCOs or with Mexican authorities have taken place in towns and cities in many parts of Mexico, especially in the border region.  Gun battles have occurred in broad daylight on streets and in other public venues, such as restaurants and clubs.  During some of these incidents, U.S. citizens have been trapped and temporarily prevented from leaving the area.  TCOs use stolen cars and trucks to create roadblocks on major thoroughfares, preventing the military and police from responding to criminal activity.  The location and timing of future armed engagements is unpredictable.  We recommend that you defer travel to the areas indicated in this Travel Warning and to exercise extreme caution when traveling throughout the northern border region.  
The number of kidnappings and disappearances throughout Mexico is of particular concern. Both local and expatriate communities have been victimized.  In addition, local police have been implicated in some of these incidents.  We strongly advise you to lower your profile and avoid displaying any evidence of wealth that might draw attention.  

Carjacking and highway robbery are serious problems in many parts of the border region and U.S. citizens have been murdered in such incidents.  Most victims who complied with carjackers at these checkpoints have reported that they were not physically harmed.  Carjackers have shot at vehicles that fail to stop at checkpoints.  Incidents have occurred during the day and at night, and carjackers have used a variety of techniques, including bumping/moving vehicles to force them to stop and running vehicles off the road at high speeds.  There are some indications that criminals have particularly targeted newer and larger vehicles, especially dark-colored SUVs.  However, victims driving a variety of vehicles, from late model SUVs to old sedans have also been targeted.  While violent incidents have occurred at all hours of the day and night on both modern toll ("cuotas") highways and on secondary roads, they have occurred most frequently at night and on isolated roads.  To reduce risk, if absolutely necessary to travel by road, we strongly urge you to travel between cities throughout Mexico only during daylight hours, to avoid isolated roads, and to use toll roads whenever possible.  The Mexican government has deployed federal police and military personnel throughout the country as part of its efforts to combat the TCOs.  U.S. citizens traveling on Mexican roads and highways may encounter government checkpoints, which are often staffed by military personnel or law enforcement personnel.  TCOs have erected their own unauthorized checkpoints, and killed or abducted motorists who have failed to stop at them.  You should cooperate at all checkpoints.
Effective July 15, 2010, the U.S. Mission in Mexico imposed restrictions on U.S. government employees' travel. U.S. government employees and their families are not permitted to drive for personal reasons from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior of Mexico or Central America.  Personal travel by vehicle is permitted between Hermosillo and Nogales but is restricted to daylight hours and the Highway 15 toll road (cuota). 

U.S. government (USG) personnel (U.S. citizens working at the Embassy and nine consulates) and their families are prohibited from personal travel to all areas described as “defer non-essential travel” and when travel for official purposes is essential it is conducted with extensive security precautions.  USG personnel and their families are allowed to travel for personal reasons to the areas where no advisory is in effect or where the advisory is to exercise caution.  While the general public is not forbidden from visiting places described as “defer non-essential travel,” USG personnel will not be able to respond quickly to an emergency situation in those areas due to security precautions that must be taken to travel to those areas.

Biometric Database of All Adult Americans Hidden in Immigration Reform

By David Kravets

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.
Buried in the more than 800 pages of the bipartisan legislation (.pdf)   is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID.
Employers would be obliged to look up every new hire in the database to verify that they match their photo.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Far-reaching legislation that grants a chance at citizenship to millions of immigrants living illegally in the United States cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee on a solid bipartisan vote Tuesday night after supporters somberly sidestepped a controversy over the rights of gay spouses.

The 13-5 vote cleared the way for an epic showdown on the Senate floor on legislation that is one of President Barack Obama's top domestic priorities - yet also gives the Republican Party a chance to recast itself as more appealing to minorities.

Illegal Alien - convicted of DUI three times? Don't worry, the gang of 8 has got you covered.
Gang of Eight’s Immigration Reform : Gang Members and Drunk Drivers are Welcome if…


Gang of Eight welcomes gang members and drunk drivers

On page 606 of the Gang of Eight’s 844-page legislation called, “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act,” under “Subtitle G—Interior Enforcement, Sec. 3701: Criminal street gangs,” we learn that gang members (with no prior convictions) can apply for a waiver by simply “renouncing” their associations with street gangs.

“‘(ii) WAIVER.—The Secretary may waive clause (i)(II) if the alien has renounced all association with the criminal street gang, is otherwise admissible, and is not a threat to the security of the United States (bold mine).’‘

On page 608, drunk drivers are welcome too if they have only been busted three times before the Gang of Eight’s bill is enacted.

‘’(J) HABITUAL DRUNK DRIVERS.—An alien convicted of 3 or more offenses on separate dates, at least 1 of which occurred after the date of the enactment of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, related to driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated is inadmissible (bold mine).’‘

For illegal aliens who have already been kicked out of America? No problem if they have only been kicked out twice (page 614).

‘’(c) REENTRY AFTER REPEATED REMOVAL.—Any alien who has been denied admission, excluded, deported, or removed 3 or more times and thereafter enters, attempts to enter, crosses the border to, attempts to cross the border to, or is at any time found in the United States, shall be fined under title 18, United States Code, and imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both (bold mine).

As for Sen. Marco Rubio, the useful idiot, the new kid on the Washington block, he seems to have quickly become a full blown liar like his seasoned colleagues. As I have repeatedly reported, despite what Rubio, and the others, including President Barack Obama, say there are not 11 million illegal aliens in America. There is no place to count them. Even if there were such a place, what illegal alien would go there to be counted? Not many, if any. Therefore whatever the real number of illegal aliens in America really is, that number will explode as the illegal aliens, (drunk drivers, and gang members), are all permitted to bring in family members.

Beginning on p. 59 of the Gang of Eight’s bill under Title II- Immigrant Visas, Subtitle A—Registration and Adjustment of Registered Provisional Immigrants, illegal aliens will now be called “Registered Provisional Immigrant.”

Later on p. 70 we learn:

“(B) FAMILY APPLICATION.—The Secretary shall establish a process through which an alien may submit a single application under this section on behalf of the alien, his or her spouse, and his or her children, who are residing in the United States. ...”

Naturally stepchildren can come too. On page 322, the age for stepchildren has been amended from 18 to 21 years. When did 21-year olds become children? Who cares, it is the more the merrier, according to the Gang of Eight.

“Sec. 2310. Equal Treatment for All Stepchildren. Section 101(b)(1)(B) (8 U.S.C. 1101(b)(1)(B)) is amended by striking ‘‘eighteen years’’ and inserting ‘‘21 years.’’”

Meanwhile, instead of fixing the existing nonsensical, arbitrary bureaucracy that plagues the broken, crime riddled USCIS for legal immigrants, the Gang of Eight has made it worse by creating new categories, bureaucratic nightmares, and quotas out of thin air to add to the USCIS’s tasks of things to do. The bill creates a merit-based system green card (merit-based points track I & 2, page 27 & 256), and the blue card (page 151). The Gang of Eight’s bill is like a bad reality TV show. How many points do you need to win a green card? You get 10 points if you speak English (page 262). If you are “in a zone 4 occupation” the alien shall be “allocated 8 points” (p. 261, line 14, ii) and so forth.

When the Gang of Eight claims that their bill must be passed because “the [immigration] status quo is unsustainable,” one must ask: who is responsible for the status quo? America’s leaders are responsible for the status quo. It’s their fault. It’s the Gang of Eight’s fault.

just for comparison - Sweden - 15 percent foreign born now:
Swedish riots rage for fourth night
Police attacked and cars torched in Stockholm suburbs as unrest sparked by long-term youth unemployment and poverty spreads
Agencies in Stockholm, Thursday 23 May 2013 04.00 EDT

Hundreds of youth have burned down a restaurant, set fire to more than 340 cars and attacked police during a fourth night of rioting in the suburbs of the Swedish capital, shocking a country that dodged the worst of the financial crisis but failed to solve youth unemployment and resentment among asylum seekers.

Violence spread across Stockholm on Wednesday, as large numbers of young people rampaged through the suburbs, throwing stones, breaking windows and destroying cars. Police in the southern city of Malmo said two cars had been set ablaze.

Around 15% of the population is foreign-born, and unemployment among these stands at 16%, compared with 6% for native Swedes, according to OECD data.

Youth unemployment in Husby, at 6%, is twice the overall average across the capital.

The left-leaning tabloid Aftonbladet said the riots represented a "gigantic failure" of government policies, which had underpinned the rise of ghettos in the suburbs.

As unemployment has grown, the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats party has risen to third in polls ahead of a general election due next year, reflecting many voters' worries that immigrants may be partly to blame.

While many of the immigrant population are from Nordic neighbours closely tied to Sweden by language or culture, the debate has tended to focus on poor asylum seekers from distant warzones.

Out of a total 103,000 immigrants last year, 43,900 were asylum seekers, almost 50% up from 2011. Nearly half of these were refugees from fighting in Syria, Afghanistan or Somalia, and will get at least temporary residency.

Among 44 industrialised countries, Sweden ranks fourth in the absolute number of asylum seekers, and second relative to its population, according to United Nations figures.

Policing in Stockholm has already been the focus of controversy this year, with allegations that police were picking out darker-skinned immigrants for identity checks on subway trains.

Just to compare to Sweden again:
They don’t want to integrate’: Fifth night of youth rioting rocks Stockholm - VIDEO

Youth gang riots in the Swedish capital Stockholm have entered fifth straight night. Hundreds of mostly immigrant teenagers tore through the suburbs, smashing windows and burning cars in the country’s worst outbreak of violence in years

Community leaders insist that a main reason for the violence is the high rate of unemployment in immigrant communities, particularly in the suburb of Husby near central Stockholm, one of the worst affected by the nighttime violence, Peter Oliver reported.

Although Sweden’s unemployment rate is below the EU average, joblessness among those under 25 has reached nearly 25 percent. The RT crew in Stockholm noted that a majority of those taking part in the violence are young.

“In Sweden you’ve got welfare, access to the educational system – up to university level, you got access to public transport, libraries, healthcare – to everything. And still they feel that they [immigrants] need to riot through stones and Molotov cocktails. It’s ridiculous and a bad excuse,” Swedish Democrats MP Kent Ekeroth told RT.
Thirty fires in third night of Stockholm riots
Published: 22 May 13 10:20 CET

Police arrested eight people on Tuesday night as thirty cars were torched across southern and western Stockholm, in what was the third consecutive night of unrest in the Swedish capital.


 The Jakobsberg police station was also vandalized, with rioters smashing the windows, and also damaging a nearby shopping centre.
 "I'm scared that it will get worse. It's going to become like France," one Kista resident told the Aftonbladet newspaper.

 Eight people were arrested, and calm was restored across the city by around 3am.

With one 18-year-old remanded in custody after four nights of rioting in Stockholm, Sweden's Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag said the rioters are a small minority, and did not represent a clash between young people in the suburbs and society.

How the IRS scandal helped immigration reform
By Chris Cillizza and Sean Sullivan, Published: May 24, 2013 at 6:30 am

The immigration bill’s forward progress — it now heads to a full floor debate next month — was entirely drowned out by a series of House and Senate committee hearings on the IRS’ acknowledged targeting of conservative groups.  That drowning out, however, was, quite simply, the best thing that could have possibly happened for the immigration bill. In fact, without it, the immigration legislation’s path out of committee might not have been so smooth.

The simple fact is that political Washington really can’t pay attention to two big stories at once. Or, more accurately, it can’t fight two battles simultaneously. It can’t walk and chew gum.
And, if Congress was focused on the IRS, it wasn’t focused on immigration.  That meant questions about border security and, especially, the inclusion of a path to citizenship in the legislation didn’t engender the fight they might have otherwise.

Supporters of comprehensive immigration reform admit that the bill benefited from the IRS scandal in the near term but fear the long term implications of the ongoing investigation into the nation’s tax-collecting agency.
“I think it hurts as it exacerbates distrust in government,” said one source supportive of comprehensive immigration reform. “This is problematic because people on the right need to have confidence government can implement [immigration reform].”

The truth is that the forces opposed to the immigration bill — led by Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions — were always likely to wait until the legislation hit the Senate floor before making their strongest case against it.

But, what’s also clear is that the legislation took far fewer direct political hits during the committee process than even many of its most ardent supporters believed it would. If immigration reform passes, it will have received a major assist from Lois Lerner and the rest of the IRS.

Dream Act is "De Facto"  "Deferred Action"

In law, it often means "in practice but not necessarily ordained by law" or "in practice or actuality, but not officially established." It is commonly used in contrast to de jure (which means "concerning the law") when referring to matters of law, governance, or technique (such as standards) that are found in the common experience as created or developed without or contrary to a regulation. When discussing a legal situation, de jure designates what the law says, while de facto designates action of what happens in practice. It is analogous and similar to the expressions "for all intents and purposes" or "in fact".
Barack Obama, Joe Biden, meet with illegal aliens

( – President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden met in the Oval Office on Tuesday with three people who are in the country in violation of U.S. immigration laws but who have received “deferred action” allowing them to stay in the country under the terms of a "memorandum" issued unilaterally last year by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

While conceding that she had no legal authority to change the "immigration status" of illegal aliens or provide them with a "pathway to citizenship," Napolitano instructed the top officials at Customs and Border Protection, Citizenship and Immigration Services, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement to use what she called "prosecutorial discretion" in not enforcing the immigration laws against certain classes of immigration lawbreakers.

These included illegal aliens who arrived in the United States before their sixteenth birthday, had graduated from high school or served in the military, had not been convicted of "significant" or "multiple" misdemeanors, and had not yet turned thirty.

Before Napolitano issued this unilateral order allowing the illegal aliens to remain in the country in violation of the law, President Obama's allies in Congress had failed to secure passage of the Dream Act, which would have allowed such persons to became legal residents in the United States.

In all, Obama and Biden met on Tuesday with eight people who are advocating immigration reform, according to White House readout of the meeting. The White House readout listed three of those as having received “deferred action.” Most others were legally in the United States with relatives who were illegal aliens.

Arizona's limits on immigrant driver's licenses upheld
A federal judge rejects a challenge to Gov. Jan Brewer's denial of driver's licenses to youths who qualify for them under the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
by Cindy Carcamo, Los Angeles Times
May 18, 2013

TUCSON — Young people granted immigration relief and work permits under a new Obama administration program still won't be able to obtain driver's licenses in Arizona, a federal judge has ruled.

Although the decision is a win for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, who issued the executive order denying driver's licenses to this particular group, it's just the first battle in a case that will probably be argued on constitutional grounds.

U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell on Thursday turned down a request for a preliminary injunction blocking Brewer's order but stated that the plaintiffs — a contingent of immigrant rights groups — would probably prevail on their claim that the governor's order violates guarantees of equal protection under the U.S. Constitution.
Most states have allowed youths granted deferred deportation to apply for a driver's license. In August, however, Brewer issued her executive order to ban such licenses.

Brewer's order states that Obama's executive order does not grant the youths "any lawful or authorized status and does not entitle them to any additional public benefit

Opponents — the Arizona Dream Act Coalition and five immigrants — sued in November, asking a judge to issue an injunction and challenging Brewer's order as unconstitutional.

The American Civil Liberties Union called Campbell's decision an important ruling, stating that it would continue to fight.


An estimated 80,000 youths in Arizona, and 1.76 million nationwide, are covered by Obama's program, according to the Migration Policy Institute, an immigration think tank based in Washington.

As of end of March, the federal government had accepted 472,004 requests for the deferred action program. Of those applications, 268,361 were approved and 1,377 denied. The rest are still under review.

The Foreign-Born Population in the United States: 2010

Forty million foreign-born people lived in the United States in 2010, according to the American Community Survey (ACS).

During the last 50 years, the number of foreign born from Latin America and the Caribbean has increased rapidly, from less than 1 million in 1960 to 21.2 million in 2010.1
Currently, the foreign born from Latin America represent over half of the total foreign-born population.

The foreign born represented 13 percent of the U.S. population.

By state, the percentage of foreign born ranged from just over 1 percent in West Virginia to 27 percent in California.

The states with the highest percentage of foreign born in their populations were California
(27 percent), New York (22 percent), and New Jersey (21 percent).

Geographic Distribution
While the foreign born resided in every state in 2010, over half lived in just four states: California, New York, Texas, and Florida.

Over one-fourth of the total foreign-born population lived in California.

California, New York, and New Jersey had the highest foreign-born proportions in their total populations.
Over 1 in 4 residents of California and over 1 in 5 residents of New York and New Jersey were foreign born.

  Well, a lot of these Communistic Senators are trying to drive us into Communism.

There is a communist tradition in Mexico too: Hmmm....


After he was formally condemned to death in Moscow, the Mexican government offered Trotsky refuge and protection, on December 6th 1936.


 In December that year the Mexican government offered Trotsky refuge and protection, which he gratefully accepted. He and Natalya sailed from Norway aboard an oil tanker and arrived in Mexico in January 1937.

The Trotskys lived in the Coyoacan area of Mexico City as guests at the Blue House, the home of the painters Diego Rivera and his wife Frida Kahlo. They were both cheerfully promiscuous and Frida took Trotsky to bed, to Natalya’s dismay. Trotsky depended for money on his publications, help from supporters and the fees he charged for interviews and for holding seminars for students. By May 1939 Trotsky and Rivera had had enough of each other and Trotsky and Natalya moved to a house close by on Avenida Viena. The years of exile, danger and uncertainty had weighed Trotsky down. Ill with high blood pressure and thinking about suicide, he looked back over his life. If he had it to live over again, he wrote, he would pursue the same course: ‘I shall die a proletarian revolutionist, a Marxist, a dialectical materialist and, consequently, an irreconcilable atheist.’    

In May 1940 an attempt to kill Trotsky by Soviet agents armed with machine guns failed, but on August 20th a charming Spanish Communist and Soviet secret agent calling himself Ramon Mercader, who had managed to infiltrate the household through a love affair with one of Trotsky’s secretaries, took the opportunity to stab Trotsky in the head with a mountaineer’s ice-axe. Trotsky was mortally wounded and died in hospital the next day. He was 60 years old.

Communist Party of Mexico (Marxist–Leninist) (in Spanish: Partido Comunista de México (Marxista-Leninista)), is a communist, Anti-Revisionist Marxist-Leninist, Hoxhaist party in Mexico which upholds the line of Enver Hoxha.

The party is an active member of the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (Unity & Struggle). It publishes the newspaper Vanguardia Proletaria and the theoretical magazine Politica. This organization has been one of the most influential in the revolutionary left in Mexico, they have played an important part in the most significant social movements of recent years such as CGH (UNAM 1999), the Mexe Hidalgo (2000), Atenco (2003), Lazaro Cardenas (2006), Guerrero, the Commune of Oaxaca (APPO 2006).
After the Revolution of Ayutla, nearly all of the top figures in the government were Freemasons and fierce anticlericals
After the rule of Porfirio Díaz who was relatively moderate in his stance toward the Church, an increasingly violent and extreme anticlericalism erupted.[1]

In 1917, a new Constitution was enacted, hostile to Church and religion, which promulgated a draconian anti-clericalism of the sort seen in France during the Revolution.[1] The new Mexican Constitution was hostile to Church as a consequence of the support given by the High Mexican Catholic Clergy to the dictatorship of Victoriano Huerta.

The 1917 Constitution outlawed teaching by the Church, gave control over Church matters to the state, put all Church property at the disposal of the state, outlawed religious orders, outlawed foreign born priests, gave states the power to limit or eliminate priests in their territory, deprived priests of the right to vote or hold office, prohibited Catholic organizations which advocated public policy, prohibited religious publications from commenting on public policy, prohibited clergy from religious celebrations and from wearing clerical garb outside of a church and deprived citizens of the right to a trial for violations of these provisions.[9][10]

One political scientist stated that the gist of the 1917 constitution was to "effectively outlaw the Roman Catholic Church and other religious denominations".[11]

Another article of the Constitution emboldened Marxist and then Communist labor unions which subsequently incited even more anti-religious governments
Huerta established a harsh military dictatorship. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson became hostile to the Huerta administration, recalled ambassador Henry Lane Wilson, and demanded Huerta step aside for democratic elections. When Huerta refused, and with the situation further exacerbated by the Tampico Affair, President Wilson landed U.S. troops to occupy Mexico's most important seaport, Veracruz.

The reaction to the Huerta usurpation was Venustiano Carranza's Plan of Guadalupe, which called for the creation of a Constitutional Army to oust Huerta and restore constitutional government. Supporters of the plan included Emiliano Zapata, Francisco "Pancho" Villa and Álvaro Obregón. After repeated field defeats of Huerta's Federal Army by Obregón and Villa, climaxing in the Battle of Zacatecas, Huerta bowed to pressure and resigned the presidency on 15 July 1914
Exclusive: The Truth About ‘La Raza’
By: cnorwood   


It was instead, downtown Los Angeles, Calif., although the scene was recreated in numerous other cities around the country with substantial Mexican populations. Hordes of Mexican expatriates, many here illegally, were protesting the very U.S. immigration laws they were violating with impunity. They found it offensive and a violation of their rights that the U.S. dared to have immigration laws to begin with.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa mounted the podium, but any hopes that he would quiet the crowds and defend the law were soon dashed. Villaraigosa, himself, has spent a lifetime opposing U.S. immigration law.

For law-abiding Americans without knowledge of the dark side of our current illegal immigration crisis, all this is unfathomable. For those who know the truth about the “La Raza” movement, these demonstrations were a prophecy fulfilled.

It is past time for all Americans to know what is at the root of this outrageous behavior, and the extent to which the nation is at risk because of “La Raza” — The Race.

There are many immigrant groups joined in the overall “La Raza” movement. The most prominent and mainstream organization is the National Council de La Raza — the Council of “The Race”.

To most of the mainstream media, most members of Congress, and even many of their own members, the National Council of La Raza is no more than a Hispanic Rotary Club.

But the National Council of La Raza succeeded in raking in over $15.2 million in federal grants last year alone, of which $7.9 million was in U.S. Department of Education grants for Charter Schools, and undisclosed amounts were for get-out-the-vote efforts supporting La Raza political positions.

The Council of La Raza succeeded in having itself added to congressional hearings by Republican House and Senate leaders. And an anonymous senator even gave the Council of La Raza an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for “housing reform,” while La Raza continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.


MEChA and the La Raza movement teach that Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Mexico, Oregon and parts of Washington State make up an area known as “Aztlan” — a fictional ancestral homeland of the Aztecs before Europeans arrived in North America. As such, it belongs to the followers of MEChA. These are all areas America should surrender to “La Raza” once enough immigrants, legal or illegal, enter to claim a majority, as in Los Angeles. The current borders of the United States will simply be extinguished.

This plan is what is referred to as the “Reconquista” or reconquest, of the Western U.S.

But it won’t end with territorial occupation and secession. The final plan for the La Raza movement includes the ethnic cleansing of Americans of European, African, and Asian descent out of “Aztlan.”

As Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter has been quoted as saying: “The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled — opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.”

For comparison - Foreign Born in France - and EU:
According to Michèle Tribalat, researcher at INED, there were, in 1999, approximately 14 million persons of foreign ancestry (about a quarter of the population), defined as either immigrants or people with at least one immigrant parent or grandparent. Half of them were of European ancestry (including 5.2 million from South Europe (Italy, Spain, Portugal and former Yugoslavia)). The rest were from Maghreb (3 million), Sub-saharan Africa (680,000), Turkey (320,000) and other parts of the world (2.5 million).[64] Immigrants from the Maghreb are commonly referred to as beur, a verlan slang term derived from the word arabe (French for Arab).[65]

According to the distinguished French historian of immigration Gérard Noiriel, one third of the population currently living in France is of "foreign" descent
France has not collected religious or ethnic data in its censuses since the beginning of the Third Republic, but the country's predominant faith has been Roman Catholicism since the early Middle Ages. Church attendance is fairly low, however, and the proportion of the population that is not religious has grown over the past century. A 2004 IFOP survey tallied that 44% of the French people did not believe in God; contrast with 20% in 1947.[90] A study by the CSA Institute conducted in 2003 with a sample of 18,000 people found that 27% considered themselves atheists, and 65.3% Roman Catholic, while 12.7% (8,065,000 people) belonged to some other religion.

There are an estimated 5 million Muslims,[91] one million Protestants, 600,000 Buddhists, 491,000 Jews,[92] and 150,000 Orthodox Christians as of 2000 figures[citation needed]. The last figure does not appear to include high numbers of Apostolic Armenians present in the Paris and Marseille conurbations. The US State Department's International Religious Freedom Report 2004 .[93] estimated the French Hindu population at 181,312.

Foreign-born population
France .. 2000 10.0 percent

6.5% of the EU population are foreigners and 9.4% are born abroad

In 2010 there were 32.5 million foreigners in the EU-27, corresponding to 6.5% of the total population. The majority of them, 20.2 million,
were third-country nationals (i.e. citizens of non-EU countries),
while the remaining 12.3 million were citizens of another Member State. Only in Luxembourg, Ireland, Belgium, Cyprus, Slovakia and Hungary were there more citizens of other EU countries than third-country nationals.

Due to better data availability, information on citizenship has often been used to study populations with a foreign background. However,
since citizenship can change over time, many data users prefer information by country of birth. There were 47.3 million foreign-born residents in the EU in 2010, corresponding to 9.4% of the total population. Of these, 31.4 million were born outside the EU and 16.0 million were born in another EU Member State. Only in Luxembourg, Ireland and Hungary were foreign-born from other EU countries more numerous than those born outside the EU. People born abroad outnumbered foreigners in all Member States, except in Luxembourg, Latvia and the Czech Republic.

One quarter of the foreigners in the EU are citizens of Turkey, Romania, Morocco or Poland

For reference lack of reciprocity:

Only Mexicans by birth or naturalization and Mexican companies have the right to acquire ownership of lands, waters, and their appurtenances, or to obtain concessions for the exploitation of mines or of waters.[1] The Mexican government may grant this right to foreigners if they agree before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs not to invoke the protection of their own governments in any matters relating to the property they wish to buy. This is known as the Calvo Clause. This is generally done through a permit process. The 1917 Mexican constitution imposed restrictions on the purchase of land on those without Mexican citizenship. In particular, it prohibits direct ownership of real estate in what is known as the "restricted zone". This zone encompasses all land within 100 km of either Mexican land border and within 50 km of any Mexican coastline

Mexico is primarily a country of emigration but it is also a country of immigration, refuge and transit migration.

According to the 2010 Census there are 961,621 immigrants registered with the government as living in Mexico, the majority of whom are US citizens—mostly children of deported Mexican government.

Immigrants arrive in Mexico for many reasons, most of the documented immigrants have arrived for economic and/or work-related reasons. Many, such as executives, professionals, scientists, artists, or athletes working for either Mexican or foreign companies, arrive with secure jobs. Retirement is the main motivation for immigrants who tend to be more permanent.

Aside from dual national descendants of Mexicans, naturalized Mexicans, or the undocumented, 262,672 foreign residents live on its soil. The majority of its foreign residents are from the U.S. followed by Spain and Guatemala.

The largest recent immigrant flows to Mexico are from Central America, with a total of 66,868 immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua living in Mexico in 2010.[3] According to the Mexican government in 2011 just under 20,000,000 foreigners entered its territory

The largest recent immigrant flows to Mexico are from Central America, with a total of 66,868 immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua living in Mexico in 2010.[3]
Undocumented immigration has been a problem for Mexico, especially since the 1970s. Although the number of deportations is declining with 61,034 registered cases in 2011, the Mexican government documented over 200,000 unauthorized border crossings in 2004 and 2005
The largest number of Americans outside the United States live in Mexico.

According to Mexico 2010 Census, there are 738,103 Americans living in the Mexican Republic.,[8] while the US Embassy in Mexico City has at times given an estimate closer to 1 million.

Mostly, people who come from the USA are students, retirees, religious workers (missionaries, pastors, etc.), Mexican-Americans, and spouses of Mexican citizens. A few are professors who come employed by Mexican companies to teach English, other English teachers, and corporate employees and executives.
Mexicans by naturalization are the following:
those that obtain from the Secretariat of Foreign Affairs a letter of naturalization, and
the man or woman married to a Mexican national residing in that Mexican territory and fulfilling all requirements set forth in the Mexican nationality law: to have lived with the spouse for two years immediately prior to the date of the application.

The Nationality Law establishes also that a foreigner that wishes to naturalize must do the following:[2]
present the application to the Secretariat of Foreign Affairs;
formulate the renunciation and taking of the oath of nationality once this has been given;
prove knowledge of Spanish and Mexican history integratation to the national culture; and
prove residence in Mexico for five years immediately prior to the submission of the application, or

two years of residency if:
a direct descendant of a Mexican by birth; or
is the mother or father of a Mexican by birth; or
is a national of a Latin American or Iberian country; or
to the judgment of the Secretariat, she or he has performed or created outstanding works in a cultural, social, scientific, technical, artistic, sports or business area that benefit the nation, in which case, the foreigner is not required to have resided in the country for the number of years prescribed in the law; or

one year of residency if adopted by a Mexican national, as well as all minors, who are second generation descendants or have been under tutelage of a Mexican national.

Mexican law also distinguishes between naturalized citizens and natural-born citizens in many ways. Under the Mexican constitution, naturalized citizens are prohibited from serving in a wide array of positions, mostly governmental.

Naturalized Mexicans cannot occupy any of positions in the following:
The Mexican military during peacetime [5]
Policeman [5]
Captain, pilot, or crew member on any Mexican-flagged vessel or aircraft[5]
President of Mexico[6]
Member of the Congress of Mexico [7]
Member of the Supreme Court of Mexico[8]
Governor of a Mexican state [9]
Mayor or member of the legislature of Mexico City

Ayotte, who represents New Hampshire, said Sunday the bill deserves consideration as a fix to a system that is hurting American security and productivity.

“For too long, politicians on both sides of the aisle in Washington have failed to lead on this issue,” Ayotte wrote. “And no doubt there will be naysayers in this debate who will continue to make excuses for inaction.”
Rubio said last week the immigration plan does not yet have the support of 60 senators, but voiced confidence that eventually the bill would garner enough votes.
Sen. Rand Paul said the bill doesn’t solve any of the problems plaguing the current system, and stands no chance of passing the GOP-controlled House.

“I want to make the bill work, but see, the thing is, is what they have in the Senate has zero chance of passing in the House,” said the Kentucky Republican. “So, why not come to a conservative like myself ... why not work with me to make the bill closer to what would be acceptable in the House?”

Marco Rubio: In immigration reform, legalization comes first — ‘It is not conditional’

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., flanked by Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., left, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., right, speaks about immigration reform legislation as outlined by the Senate's bipartisan "Gang of Eight" that would create a path for the nation's 11 million unauthorized immigrants to apply for U.S. citizenship, in this file photo.

In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements.

“Let’s be clear,” Rubio said. “Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence.”

Kaine to Deliver Rare Spanish-Language Floor Speech
By Niels Lesniewski   Posted at 12:11 p.m. today

Listen closely to the Senate floor shortly after noon and you’ll hear something you don’t hear every day.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., plans to deliver a Senate floor speech in Spanish to encourage support for the immigration overhaul drafted by the “gang of eight” senators that’s due to formally reach the Senate floor this afternoon.

[ To use another language on the floor requires unanimous consent of the other senators, which Mr. Kaine sought and was granted ]

According to CQ Roll Call’s “Politics in America,” Kaine was a teacher at a Jesuit school in El Progreso, Honduras.

Translation of Senator Tim Kaine’s Floor Remarks As Prepared for Delivery

The Senate has begun a historic debate on comprehensive immigration reform. We have had and will continue to have hours of debate on this issue. I think it is appropriate that I spend a few minutes explaining the bill in Spanish, a language that has been spoken in this country since Spanish missionaries founded St. Augustine, Florida in 1565. Spanish is also spoken by almost 40 million Americans who have a lot at stake in the outcome of this debate.

First, I want to applaud my colleagues in the “Gang of 8,” who have worked tirelessly to come up with a bipartisan comprehensive bill. This issue deserves an open and fair debate on the floor. It has been over 25 years since we passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill. The next few days and weeks will not be easy; they will be a test for the Senate, and whether this body can debate, offer amendments, compromise, and ultimately come together on an issue that will move our country forward.

This debate is about Isabel Castillo.

This young woman from Harrisonburg, Virginia was brought to the United States by her parents at the very young age of 6. Her parents performed hard labor in order to support their family by picking apples and working in a poultry plant. All they wanted, like all parents do, was a better life for their children. Isabel did everything right – she graduated from High School and went on to attend college, where she graduated magna cum laude. She did not qualify for financial aid, due to her immigration status, and worked for a year to save money for college. After she graduated from college she was unable to legally find a job. Instead of giving up, this young woman organized the Harrisonburg Dream Act chapter to raise awareness about her situation in order to help other students. 

This is one example of many as to why we need to pass an immigration bill. For students and families, such as Isabel’s, this is about their future. 

The last time Congress passed a Comprehensive Immigration bill was in 1986. Many of the concerns I hear from Virginians involve issues that the last immigration reform bill did not address -- lack of sufficient border security measures and a way to address the large number of undocumented immigrants in our country. The last immigration reform bill also did not include spouses and children of legalized immigrants – which created a strong incentive for many to enter or remain in the country illegally.

This time around, things are different. I have been very impressed by the open process we have had in the Judiciary Committee. 

o 212 amendments were considered in the Committee;
o 30 Republican amendments were accepted; and
o 12 full Committee hearings on Immigration and Border Security were held before markup.

I understand that some doubt remains as to whether or not this bill will fix our broken immigration system. While not perfect - I can confidently stand here today and say this bill will do more for border security, more to improve our current backlog, more to strengthen our employment verification system, and more to put measures in place to deal with the future flow of immigrants – compared to any other immigration bill in history. 

This bill will first and foremost create a path to earned citizenship, not amnesty. Undocumented individuals will have to meet several stringent requirements such as, paying fees and fines, passing national security and criminal background checks, paying their taxes and learning English.

And before anyone can come out of the shadows, this bill requires a border security strategy and border fencing strategy within six months of enactment. 

I am proud that this bill includes strong provisions to protect students who only know this country as their home, DREAMERS, as well as Agricultural workers, who perform some of the most difficult labor – these individuals will have an accelerated path if they meet certain conditions. 

In order for the U.S. to be the most talented country in the world – we must fix the current flaws in our immigration system. Our immigration system does not meet the demands of businesses that wish to attract and retain highly qualified immigrants.

It is not about just addressing the short-term needs of the STEM workforce but about investing in the future of our children. In order to ensure we remain globally competitive, we must increase our investments in education. This bill does just that by establishing a STEM education initiative – funded through fees collected from employers of foreign STEM workers. 

According to the Council on Foreign Relations “60 percent of U.S. employers are having difficulties finding qualified workers to fill vacancies at their companies.” 

This bill also creates a fair path for individuals who want to come into this country and start businesses, create jobs, and invest in the economy.

o In Virginia, Asian-owned businesses had sales and receipts of more than $13 billion and employed more than 92,000 people.
o Virginia’s foreign students contribute more than $405 million to the state’s economy in tuition, fees, and living expenses every year. 

Immigrants’ contributions in the high-tech sector are striking, with one study finding that immigrants started 25 percent of all engineering and technology companies founded in the United States between 1995 and 2005.

Through this bill individuals who earn a Master’s or other postgraduate degree in STEM fields from American universities can apply for Legal Permanent Resident status. This bill also changes our current visa system from one based on arbitrary numbers to one that is market based and understands the needs of U.S. employers.

The Federal Government currently spends nearly $18 billion on immigration enforcement every year; more than the combined budgets of all other federal law enforcement agencies. 

o U.S. Border Patrol apprehension of foreign nationals between ports of entry fell to a 40-year low of 327,577 in FY2011; and

o Removals grew from 30,000 in 1990 to more than 391,000 in FY2011.

This bill goes even further by allocating up to $6.5 billion additional dollars for border security. And it requires a biometric exit system to be in place at the 10 largest international airports in the United States within two years, and 20 additional airports within six years.

It is not just about spending more money at the border, but about being strategic in how and where we spend our resources.

One of the key issues that we must address is to hold employers accountable and ensure that we have an effective employment verification system in place.

As of May more than 400,000 employers registered for e-verify. This bill will mandate that all employers use a verification system that ensures all employees are legally authorized to work in the United States, and fine companies that employ undocumented immigrants. 

The State Department is currently processing visas for Filipino siblings of U.S. citizens who submitted their visa applications 24 years ago. I ask my colleagues to imagine if you had to wait over 24 years to see your family members. 

This bill provides sufficient visas to erase the current backlog of family and employment-based visa applicants in the next 7 years, starting in 2015.

Lastly, and probably one of the most essential pieces of this bill – is how we deal with future flow of immigrants wanting to come to this country. This bill creates a future immigration framework that is premised on a merit-based points system. 

The bill:

o Establishes a new non-immigrant agricultural worker visa, and sets forth provisions relating to the integration of new immigrants; and

o Includes provisions to deal with the present and future workforce needs of the American agriculture industry, while protecting workers from being displaced or otherwise adversely affected by foreign workers. 

In closing, I welcome this debate. English settlers who landed at Jamestown, Virginia in 1607 helped begin our nation’s great history as an immigrant nation. And Virginian Thomas Jefferson, as he wrote the Declaration of Independence, expressed his clear understanding that immigration was a positive force for our nation. 

Today, Virginia has the ninth-largest immigrant population in the country, with over 903,000 foreign-born residents. Immigrants contribute greatly to the richness of our Commonwealth. 

I hope that we will start a new chapter and send a strong message to the world that we are a country of laws but also of fairness and equality. 

Let’s not repeat the mistakes of the past but let’s also remember that the perfect should not be the enemy of the good. Finding a perfect solution should not stand in the way of progress. 

Let’s show this country and the world that this is not a Republican bill and it is not a Democratic bill but it is a strong bipartisan bill. It is time that we pass comprehensive immigration reform. Thank you.

Senate Debates Immigration Reform Bill
Washington, DC
Wednesday, June 12, 2013

The Senate returns Wednesday to continue debating proposed changes to a comprehensive immigration measure. Some of the amendments being proposed are aimed at strengthening the bill's border security language. The bipartisan immigration bill proposes to create a conditional path to citizenship for most of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States. It also aims to crack down on the hiring of illegal workers and places caps on visas for high-skilled workers.

Immigration Bill Gives 30 Million Illegal Immigrants Legal Status Within 10 Years
May 15, 2013

The leading opposing voice in the U.S. Senate against the ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration reform bill, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, has outlined that the bill as it is written, “will give 30 million, and probably more, green cards or permanent status” to illegal immigrants over the next 10 years.

 Sessions contends that this 30 million does not include the “family-based and chain-based migration where caps have been removed,” which suggests that there could be an influx of more than 30 million illegal immigrants  that will be eligible for permanent status.

 What is more disturbing is that Sessions says that his colleagues in the Senate have told him not to count the 11 million already here against that 30 million number.

 Considering that no there is no way to track or count  how many illegal immigrants are actually residing in the United States, how could anyone say for certain that there are 11 million, 15 million, or more illegal immigrants residing here.?
Immigration reform: When is family reunification also 'chain migration'?

Immigration reform legislation promises expedited reunification for millions of families awaiting visas, but critics caution that the overhaul could also produce uncontrolled 'chain migration.'

By David Grant, Staff writer / May 6, 2013

The bipartisan immigration reform legislation being debated in the US Senate would have a massive effect on families split by America's current immigration system, with proponents cheering the reunification of husbands with wives and children with parents, while detractors see only a surge in what they call "chain migration" that would bring many new, low-skilled workers into the country
A proposed Senate bill, however, would revamp how the American immigration system deals with families like the Paxtons and millions more separated by long wait times for certain family visas or young undocumented Americans who have seen parents and other family members deported at record levels under the Obama administration.

The proposed Senate bill offers several avenues for families who have been separated to be brought back together.


Another provision ensures that some families aren’t split apart in the first place. Legal permanent residents, also known as green card holders, will be allowed to bring spouses and children into the US with them immediately. It would also allow some temporary workers to enter the US with their children and spouses
The groups of people with expedited tracks to US permanent residency under the Senate legislation – 4.5 million people in family backlogs, an estimated 1 million to 2 million DREAMers, and 800,000 farm workers, along with new petitions from current US citizens and permanent residents – add up to millions of new immigrants, and especially lesser-skilled immigrants, over the next decade

This would be a huge increase in family migration. In net, you’re going to have a big increase there, and it’s changing the long-established law that had limits on the amount of chain migration that might occur,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R) of Alabama, a leading opponent of the Senate bill, in a call with reporters on Friday.

Immigration Bill Full of Harmful Provisions
Expert: like Obamacare, ‘Gang of Eight’ bill full of surprises
McCaughey, author of Beating Obamacare, warned that much like the Obamacare bill, the immigration bill contains many provisions no one is aware of or talking about.

She rejected the notion that immigration reform requires a comprehensive bill. “A comprehensive bill is an unread bill,” she said, adding that Congress should instead pass individual bills focusing on singular issues that congressman will actually read.

McCaughey also expressed concerns that the cost of the immigration bill has not been fully calculated. Making welfare benefits available to illegal immigrants could cost taxpayers $9,000 per recipient. Additionally, the bill could increase the cost of Obamacare by $100 billion
McCaughey said the most alarming provision is a section that creates a nonprofit called United States Citizenship, which will develop “citizen preparation” programs to teach immigrants about American history, voting, and the Constitution. The nonprofit will be run by national community organizers and will receive permanent government funding.

The federal Office of Immigration has previously done this job.

This nonprofit would be allowed to rewrite American history with whatever slant they want without public scrutiny, McCaughey said. The goal of this provision is to register more Democratic voters, she said.

Jeb Bush: U.S. economy needs immigrants because they’re ‘more fertile’
By Aaron Blake, Published: June 14, 2013 at 10:11 am

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) argued Wednesday that the United States should pass immigration reform because the U.S. economy needs the labor of young immigrants, and immigrants are “more fertile.”

“Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans,” Bush said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to the Majority conference. “Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.”

Bush [ a catholic convert], whose wife is a Mexican-born immigrant, has long been an advocate for comprehensive immigration reform.
"Ralph Reed has built an incredible organization and I'm gonna tell you, it's going to grow into a force to be reckoned with. And that's the Faith & Freedom Coalition. It's going to be the modern day Christian Coalition and it's gonna have a big impact." -
Sean Hannity, radio host, author [ Catholic - He grew up in Franklin Square, New York,[3] and attended Sacred Heart Seminary in Hempstead, New York, during his middle school years and St. Pius X Preparatory Seminary high school in Uniondale, New York ]

On Hannity's "show":
Ann Coulter: GOP 'Deserves To Die' If It Backs Immigration Reform
The Huffington Post  |   Posted: 06/13/2013
Coulter reinforced the views presented in her column during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday evening that ran under the banner “Legalizing Illegals.”   “This bill has nothing in terms of enforcement,” Coulter said. “If you’re serious about enforcement, just say ‘we’re enforcing E-Verify.’”
Limbaugh: Immigration Bill Designed To Destroy GOP,_Jr.
Reed was hired by religious broadcaster-cum-Presidential candidate Pat Robertson as executive director of the Christian Coalition in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Robertson, his son, Gordon P. Robertson, Dick Weinold, a Robertson activist from Texas, and Billy McCormack, a pastor from Shreveport, Louisiana, were the original four directors of the organization. McCormack also held the title of "vice president" and had been his state director of "Americans for Robertson" in 1988


Jeb Bush to push immigration reform
Will Republicans Listen to Jeb Bush About Immigration Reform?

Jeb Bush is trying his best to convince his fellow Republicans that immigration reform is good for the party, despite concerns among some that there is little to gain politically from allowing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

“It’s always: immigrants don’t like Republicans. Why? Why do we assume that?” Bush lamented today at a Bipartisan Policy Center event on immigration. “Why do we assume it’s always going to be that way because it currently is that way?”

Bush is ardently making the case that Hispanic and Asian American voting patterns, which currently favor Democrats, won’t always be that way if Republicans do something about it.

According to the former Florida governor, the answer lies in creating a more optimistic, aspirational message that resonates more with recent immigrants.

“So I would argue that Republicans win when we are positive and hopeful and aspriational. And we draw people towards our cause when we do that,” Bush said. “If we just play the game that we’re for less government … that message is not aspirational, it’s not very hopeful, it’s not particularly optimistic, and we could lose.”

But if Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s warnings are any indication—that immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship will mean the end of the Republican Party—Jeb Bush has a lot of convincing to do.

“This is President Obama’s number one political agenda because he knows we will never again have a Republican president ever if amnesty goes into effect,”  Bachmann told conservative website World Net Daily this week. “We will perpetually have a progressive liberal president, probably a Democrat and we will probably see the House of Representatives go into Democrat hands and the Senate will stay in Democrat hands.”

“So you’ll have a permanent liberal progressive Democrat class. And you will never again be able to see the country go back to its constitutional foundation. That’s what is at risk right now,” the Minnesota Republican continued.

Bush, who said he supports the Senate’s immigration reform plan, which prescribes a 13-year pathway to citizenship, seems to believe that cooler heads will prevail among Republicans and that the party stands a chance of winning over future recent immigrant voters.

“My guess is that the messaging will change and that we could garner significant support amongst immigrants from Africa, from Asia, from Latin America,” Bush said.

In the House, Bachmann is working hard to raise the alarm that the opposite is true. She, along with Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), are also circulating a petition this week calling for a special conference meeting in the House that would force additional debate on an immigration bill, her office confirmed to ABC News.

It’s unclear how many House Republicans will sign the petition, but it could be an indication of how steep the climb toward a comprehensive bill– especially one with a pathway to citizenship–will be in the House.

Jeb Bush pitches immigration reform to House GOP
By TARINI PARTI | 6/13/13 1:30 PM EDT

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush made the economic argument for immigration reform Thursday, both in private at a closed-door meeting of House Republicans and at a Bipartisan Policy Center discussion.
Bush and former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour also made that economic pitch at the Bipartisan Policy Center.

GDP growth is simply productivity multiplied by the number of workers,” said Barbour. “Now I wasn’t a math major, but I can figure out that if the number of workers stays the same as it has under this administration… it’s very hard to get the GDP to go up.”

Add Bill O’Reilly to the list of conservative media personalities experimenting with immigration reform. The Fox News host told Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Wednesday that the senator’s plan, which closely resembles President Obama’s immigration framework, sounded reasonable
And it comes after another prominent FOX host, Sean Hannity, endorsed a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants as well.
O’Reilly and other conservatives appear to be performing a careful dance around Rubio on immigration, offering him cover with the tea party wing by framing him as a right-wing antidote to radical immigration reformers in the Democratic party.

Marco Rubio, John Boehner meet on immigration
By JAKE SHERMAN | 6/14/13 12:38 PM EDT

Not much is truly known about where House Speaker John Boehner stands on immigration reform. He says he wants it done, but has barely waded into the policy.

But in a closed meeting with his closest Capitol Hill allies — a group informally known as Team Boehner — he’s giving more clues.

On Wednesday, Boehner welcomed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) into the meeting of his inner circle in his Capitol office suite.
Rubio's family was Roman Catholic, though from age 8 to age 11, he and his family attended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while they lived in Las Vegas.[9] He received his first communion as a Catholic in 1984, before moving back to Miami with his family a year later. He was confirmed and married in the Catholic Church

On July 11, 2011, the Hispanic television station Univision aired a story about the 1989 cocaine trafficking conviction of Orlando Cicilia, Rubio's brother-in-law ... In January 2013, Senator Rubio proposed a plan providing a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States.
Boehner attended Cincinnati's Moeller High School and was a linebacker on the school's football team, where he was coached by future Notre Dame coach Gerry Faust
He earned his B.A. in business administration from Xavier University in 1977, becoming the first person in his family to attend college, taking seven years as he held several jobs to pay for his education.[8]

Religion Roman Catholicism

Xavier University is a co-educational Jesuit, Catholic university located in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.[7] The school is the sixth-oldest Catholic and fourth-oldest Jesuit university in the nation
Barbara Rubio was not arrested or indicted. Cicilia was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana belonging to a crime ring implicated in the death and dismemberment of a federal informant, as well as the bribing of several Miami police officers.

At the time, Marco Rubio, just 16 years old, was a student at South Miami High.

Univision asked the Senator how this epsiode affected his family and what type of relationship he had with his convicted brother-in-law. Rubio’s spokesperson, who did not deny any of the information uncovered by Univision Investiga, said he considered the issue a private family matter.
According to federal documents and press coverage of the trial, Cicilia was identified as a second-level member of a drug trafficking outfit led by Mario Tabraue, a Cuban American known for keeping an extensive collection of exotic animals in his home.

Before being indicted, Cicilia earned a living in the exotic fish and bird trade. In 1980, he married Barbara Rubio in Nevada, where the Senator’s parents lived at the time. Mario, the Senator’s father, worked at Sam’s Town Hotel in Las Vegas and Oria, Rubio’s mother, was a maid at Imperial Palace. In 1985 the family moved to Miami, a city plagued by drug related crime. Drama struck the Rubio family just two years later when Cicilia was arrested as part of a larger raid dubbed “Operation Cobra.”  News of the arrests occupied the front pages of the city’s newspapers.

Should Marco Rubio’s drug trafficking brother in law be deported? After all, a federal informant was chopped up, right?
by President of Somos A. Bustos on
Jul. 13, 2011, under Secure Borders and Reasonable Immigration Solution

Marco Rubio’s brother in law was indicted for drug trafficking and the death and dismemberment of a federal informant.  However, we are trying to ascertain if his brother in law was a legal permanent resident at the time of this conviction.

Since Marco Rubio has taken an enforcement only stance on immigration (he supports Arizona’s unConstitutional SB 1070 law, is against the DREAM Act and now wants to embrace Lamar Smith’s enforcement only policies via the national e-verify program), would he have been in favor of deporting his sister’s husband?


His brother-in-law was released on good behavior.  GOOD BEHAVIOR?  Being part of chopping up a federal informant’s body is okay as long as you behave in prison will get you out early?!  Keep in mind Marco Rubio’s brother in law only served 12 years, not the 25 he was sentenced.  Where are the Republicans at who are “tough on criminals”?  Where are the Republican death penalty supporters at on this issue?  Anyone?  Bueller….

Murdoch became managing director of Australia's News Limited, inherited from his father, in 1952.[4][6] He is the founder, Chairman and CEO of global media holding company News Corporation, the world's second-largest media conglomerate

. In 1996, Murdoch decided to enter the cable news market with the Fox News Channel, a 24-hour cable news station.

Catholic anger at Murdoch's papal knighthood

The Roman Catholic church is receiving complaints from worshippers following news that Rupert Murdoch has been awarded a papal knighthood from Pope John Paul II.  

Senior Catholics are said to have been "mystified and astonished" when they heard that the purveyor of newspaper sex, scandal and nudity was made a Knight Commander of St Gregory at a ceremony in Los Angeles last month.

News of the award was kept out of Mr Murdoch's British titles - the Sun, the Times, the Sunday Times and the News of the World - at his request, although it is provoking outrage in the religious media and in Ireland, where many Catholics have reacted with anger that Mr Murdoch, who is not a Catholic, appears to have been honoured purely for donating large sums of money to the church. He and his wife, Anna, who is a Catholic, are known in Los Angeles as large contributors to the Archdiocesan Education Foundation, although specific amounts are not known.

The award was made by the Pope at the suggestion of Cardinal Archbishop Roger Mahony of Los Angeles. His recommendation was vetted by the Secretariat of State at the Vatican before being given the approval of the pontiff.

The knighthood is bestowed upon people of "unblemished character". It was presented by the Cardinal at St Francis De Sales Church in Los Angeles on 11 January. Other recipients included Bob Hope and Roy Disney, of the Walt Disney empire

According to the magazine:

James Murdoch, who is in charge of his father Rupert Murdoch's media empire in Europe and Asia, is understood to have given a donation believed to be at least £100,000. On the day that Pope Benedict XVI celebrated Mass in Westminster Cathedral,

Mr Murdoch, and other major donors to the visit's funding, were introduced to the Pope in Archbishop's House.

Romanizing America through Illegal Immigration
By Pastor Ralph Ovadal, April 10, 2006

The pope, along with the  Reconquista cadre, views South, Central, and North Americas as being one "from Argentina to Alaska." On several occasions, Pope John Paul II has "consecrated" this "America" to "Our Lady of Guadalupe."

The Mexican people streaming across America's porous southern border are Roman Catholics. It is in the interest of the Vatican to establish as many Roman Catholics as possible in the United States of America. The pope and his partners in spiritual crime care little how the job is done—whether illegally or legally—just so it is done

The Roman Catholic Church is determined to turn Protestant America into a Roman Catholic country, and her best bet to do that is to bring as many Catholics into our nation as possible. (

  Hey Miss Lindsey, When you traitors pass this, your Republican Party is doomed.

Miss Lindsey Graham predicts 'breakthrough' passage of immigration bill with over '70 votes'

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday predicted overwhelming congressional passage of an immigration reform bill.

“I think we are going to have a political breakthrough, that Congress is going to pass immigration reform,” Graham said on NBC's Meet the Press.

He said the Senate will give the reform bill — which currently has a path to citizenship for the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants — overwhelming support.
“I think we are going to get plus 70 votes,” he said. “I've never been more optimistic about it.”

Graham said passing the bill is a political necessity for the GOP.

“If we don't pass immigration reform, if we don't get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn't matter who we run in 2016,” he said. “We're in a demographic death spiral as a party.

Senate set to vote on border fence amendment in immigration bill
By Stephen Dinan
Washington Times
June 18, 2013

A  week into the immigration debate, the Senate has finally set up showdowns Tuesday afternoon on some of the biggest questions, including whether to build the full 700-mile fence Congress approved seven years ago, but never followed through on.

Sen. John Thune, South Dakota Republican, has offered an amendment that would require 350 miles of two-tier border fencing be built before illegal immigrants can gain legal status, and for another 350 miles to be built before they can get green cards
the border now has 651 miles of barriers, and only 352 miles of that is an actual fence to keep pedestrians out. The other 299 miles are vehicle blockades that still allow wildlife, and people, to cross unhindered
Senators will also vote Tuesday on three other amendments: One would expand immigration benefits for adoptees, another would add Indian tribe representatives to a border oversight panel, and a third would stop any legalization until the government completes a biometric entry-exit system that Congress first demanded in 1996, but which is still undone.

CBO: Senate Immigration Bill Would Increase Unemployment Rate, Decrease Wages
By: Sean Davis | June 19, 2013

A new study by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that a key Senate bill to increase immigration to the U.S. would increase the unemployment rate and decrease the average wage earned by American workers. The report, which was released yesterday, analyzed both the federal budget and the economic impacts of S. 744, an expansive immigration plan introduced by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

“During the next several years,” the study found, “the unemployment rate would be slightly higher than it otherwise would be and average wages would be slightly lower.”
Per capita GNP would be less than 1 percent lower than under current law through 2031 because the increase in the population would be greater, proportionately, than the increase in output,” the study found. “After 2031, however, the opposite would be true.”
CBO: Senate bill still allows illegal immigration  [ Bill will not end illegal immigration]
By ERICA WERNER and DAVID ESPO | Associated Press – Wed, Jun 19, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — Illegal immigration into the United States would decrease by only 25 percent under a far-reaching Senate immigration bill, according to an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office that also finds the measure reduces federal deficits by billions.

"Unauthorized residents would find it harder both to enter the country and to find employment while unauthorized. However, other aspects of the bill would probably increase the number of unauthorized residents — in particular, people overstaying their visas issued under the new programs for temporary workers," the CBO report said, adding that the net annual flow of unauthorized residents would decrease by about 25 percent compared to current law.
Senators reach border deal, smoothing path to immigration overhaul
By Kasie Hunt and Carrie Dann , NBC News

A bipartisan group of senators have reached an agreement to strengthen border security in the Senate's immigration bill, a breakthrough that could pave the way for a significant number of GOP senators to support the comprehensive legislation.
the agreement would double the size of the border patrol and require 700 miles of border fencing
The senators involved -- Republicans John Hoeven and Bob Corker, who have been working with Gang of Eight members Sens. Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, John McCain and Lindsey Graham -- have dubbed it the "border surge" plan; they're preparing a Thursday announcement.
The additional provisions will come with a price tag. Aides estimate that the doubling of the border patrol agents -- just one piece of the "border surge" -- will add about $30 billion to the overall cost of the bill.
The most vigorous opponents of the compromise bill maintain that the Hoeven-Corker measure still does not do enough to prevent illegal immigration. The political arm of the Heritage Foundation, led by former Sen. Jim DeMint, says it opposes the amendment because it "fails to take a security-first approach," and immigration limitation group NumbersUSA is urging its members to lobby against the measure.
Senate shoots down Rand Paul's immigration reform amendment
Published: June 19, 2013 at 6:52 PM

WASHINGTON, June 19 (UPI) -- The Senate Wednesday shot down Rand Paul's amendment to the U.S. immigration reform bill that would have tied immigrants' legal status to border security. The Kentucky Republican's "Trust but Verify" measure was tabled on a 61-37 vote, The Hill reported.

The amendment would have required Congress to vote on whether border security measures were being enforced before immigrants would be granted legal status, the Washington publication said. The measure also would have required completion of a border fence in five years and provided that no national identification card system be established.
The Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act, is one of several bills Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said the committee will send to the House floor in the coming weeks. He has said he prefers to tackle immigration reform with a series of smaller bills rather than one sweeping bill as the Senate is doing.

They need more immigration so the cartels can have more troops in our country...
US under siege by Mexican gangs and drug cartels
October 6th 2011

During the past two years the state of Texas has become increasingly threatened by the  spread of Mexican cartel organized crime. The threat reflects a change in the strategic intent of the cartels to move their operations into the United States.

In effect, the cartels  seek to create a “sanitary zone” inside the Texas border — one county deep — that will  provide sanctuary from Mexican law enforcement and, at the same time, enable the cartels to transform Texas’ border counties into narcotics transshipment points for continued  transport and distribution into the continental United States. To achieve their objectives the  cartels are relying increasingly on organized gangs to provide expendable and  unaccountable manpower to do their dirty work. These gangs are recruited on the streets of  Texas cities and inside Texas prisons by top-tier gangs who work in conjunction with the cartels.

There Are 1.4 MILLION Gang Members In The United States And More Pour Into The Country Every Single Day
By Michael, on January 20th, 2012
A vast army of heavily armed criminals has embedded itself in every major city in the United States.  In fact, nearly every community in America is now affected by these thugs.  Drugs, theft and brutal violence are all part of the every day lifestyle of the members of this army.  They aggressively recruit our young people and floods of illegal immigrants are joining their ranks.
The FBI tells us that there are now 1.4 million gang members involved in the 33,000 different gangs that are active inside the United States.  The number of gang members in the U.S. has increased by 40 percent since 2009.  Just think about that.  That is absolutely astounding. 

Just since 2009, the number of gang members has increased by 40 percent.  The FBI says that 48 percent of all violent crime in this country can be directly traced to gangs and that this is a national crisis that is progressively getting worse

Unfortunately, the federal government refuses to secure our borders and is allowing new waves of illegal immigrants to enter the United States every single day.


Back in the year 2000, more than 50 percent of all Americans teens had a job.  This past summer, only 29.6% of all American teens had a job.
When you have lots of teens and young adults sitting around with nothing but time on their hands, bad things are prone to happen.
As the family unit continues to decline in America, young people are looking for a sense of belonging.  For many youths, a gang becomes a new “family” for them. But unfortunately, these new “families” do not exactly teach “family values”.  Instead, they teach our young people about how to be brutal and violent.
A few months ago, I wrote about how the Obama administration has announced that there will now be a case-by-case review of all deportation cases involving illegal immigrants

Those involving “criminals” will be prioritized and almost all the rest will be thrown out. Yes, you read that correctly.

If you are an illegal immigrant and you have not been convicted of a crime that means that you almost certainly get to stay in this country.
So that is basically a big green light for even larger waves of illegal immigrants to enter this country. That means that the ranks of the gangs will swell even more.

The chaotic drug war that is going on in northern Mexico has spread into many areas of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.  With each passing day, the gangs that are embedded in all of our major cities are getting stronger.   They are a ticking time bomb that eventually will go off.

One day, when mass civil unrest erupts in the United States, the gangs will have a field day.  Given the opportunity, most gangs will gleefully indulge in brutal violence, looting, arson, rape and mindless property destruction.

Sadly, this all could have been avoided.

Instead of strip-searching old women at airports, this is what we should have been dedicating our law enforcement resources to.

Instead of spending billions of dollars spying on the American people, the federal government should have spent billions of dollars on securing our borders.

Unfortunately, we made the wrong choices as a nation and so now we are going to pay the price.

The nation’s population will rise to 438 million in 2050, from 296 million in 2005, and fully 82% of the growth during this period will be due to immigrants arriving from 2005 to 2050 and their descendants

  [ That's  438-296 = 142 * .82 =  116 MILLION (mostly Mexican) immigrants !!! ]  


For the period from 2005-2050, new immigrants and their descendants will account for 82% of population increase. The contribution of new immigration to population change was derived by comparing our main projection with an alternative projection that assumes no new immigrants arrive after 2005. (See Contribution of Immigration to Population Change in Appendix.)

[ The border has now been moved back to Nevada ! : ]
Nevada Is Officially a Border State Now
By David Weigel
Posted Thursday, June 20, 2013, at 11:23 AM

The Senate says so! In a vote yesterday that mostly Nevadans were paying attention to, the Senate agreed—handily agreed—to an amendment that gives Nevada a seat on the "border security commission" created by the current version of immigration reform. (Instead of 10 members, it'll have 11.) And it wasn't even close. Eight senators actually represent states with portions of the U.S.-Mexico border, and only one of them (you guessed it, Ted Cruz) voted against the plan.
Opponents of the measure didn't really organize against it, preferring to make fun of the crazy idea. But neither the pro-reform side nor most of the opponents had a problem with it; there are plenty of illegal immigrants making their way to Las Vegas, right?

"The Pew Research Center estimates there are more than 100,000 undocumented immigrants of working age in Utah"
Mexican, Undocumented and Mormon
May 2, 2013

Since 2000, the number of Spanish-speaking members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the United States has doubled. Many of those Latino Mormons lack legal documentation, which poses a problem for the church.

Young Mormons are called to serve missions — two years on the road, trying to convert strangers to the faith. So what happens when Mormons without papers come of legal age, and set off on their missions?
Tony Yapias is a Peruvian immigrant, a Mormon and a longtime community organizer in Salt Lake City. He says he has known hundreds of missionaries who lacked papers. The issue became critical, he says, in 2009, when immigration agents in an Ohio airport arrested a Latino missionary.

“That had a profound impact in the church,” Yapias said. “It became a concern for parents, a concern for missionaries.”
“When the immigration issue started heating up, at some point the church knew they were undocumented, and they knew they could no longer send them outside the country on missions," Yapais said.
Two years later, Isaac is now applying for the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. If approved, he can go to college without fear of deportation.

The Mormon colonies in Mexico are settlements located near the Sierra Madre mountains in northern Mexico which were established by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints beginning in 1885.
 The towns making up the colonies were originally situated in the states of Chihuahua and Sonora, and were all within roughly 200 miles of the US border. By the early 20th century, many of these were relatively prosperous. However, in the summer of 1912, the colonies were evacuated due to anti-American sentiment during the Mexican Revolution and many of their citizens left for the United States and never returned

Mexico is home to the largest body of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) outside of the United States
Most of the Mormon colonists left in 1912 due to rising violence,[1] but many returned some were able to return in later years. Pratt remained as mission president until his death, also establishing missionary work among the Spanish-speaking populations in the Southwestern United States.

In 1936, a group of people called the Third Convention, influenced by the spirit of the Mexican Revolution, called for a Mexican to serve as president of the church's mission in Mexico. The tactics of this group led to the excommunication of its members. In 1946, George Albert Smith, the President of the Church, visited Mexico. He was able to establish a reconciliation with most of the members of the Third Convention and the vast majority of this group were brought back into the church.
The first Spanish-speaking stake in Mexico was organized in Mexico City in 1961. In 1966 Agricol Lozano became the first indigenous Mexican to serve as a stake president. In 1970, the Monterrey Stake (now Monterrey Mexico Mitras Stake) was organized with Guillermo G. Garza as president. This was the first stake in Mexico outside of the Mormon colonies and the Mexico City area.

search: correspondent banking or bulk cash repatriation
In the first half, Robert Mazur, a decorated DEA undercover agent, detailed how billions in illicit drug and crime proceeds are kept hidden from governments through money laundering on a yearly basis. Even if marijuana was legalized in the US, it still wouldn't put much of a dent in the Mexican and Colombian cartels, whose main profits come from trafficking heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine, he noted.

Mazur said that such "narco-terrorists" feed off of the ability to corrupt the police, the military, the judicial and legislative systems that give them safe havens. This corruption is further enabled "when the financial institutions of the world partake in the laundering of the mountains of cash that are generated by those organizations," he said. The banks turn the cash into wire transfers, which help to create legitimate seeming companies that operate globally, he explained, citing the Ayman Joumaa case as an example.

March 7, 2013
• International Focus or Component – Foreign correspondent banking, cross border funds transfers, bulk cash repatriation, remote deposit capture, and embassy banking have all been high-risk areas that some banks have not managed effectively.

• Bulk Cash and Structured Deposits – Bulk cash transactions continue to present significant BSA/AML challenges for banks in determining legitimate from illegitimate sources. In addition, as a result of the changes to the Mexican currency laws, we have seen an increase in suspicious activity along the southwest border flowing from funnel accounts associated with drug cartels, increased use of non-bank financial institutions, and increased structuring of cash deposits.
Wachovia Bank, N.A., Charlotte, North Carolina (Wachovia) – In March 2010, the OCC assessed a $50 million penalty and issued a C&D order against this bank for violations of the BSA as part of a coordinated action with the Department of Justice (DOJ), FinCEN, and other federal agencies. Wachovia also entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Florida and the DOJ Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section (AFMLS) and agreed to a $110 million forfeiture to the U.S. government. Additionally, FinCEN assessed a $110 million civil money penalty that was deemed satisfied by the forfeiture. The OCC’s enforcement action focused attention on the bulk cash repatriation money laundering scheme. The OCC played a lead role in this case and linked remote cash letter instrument processing to the bulk cash scheme.
HSBC Bank USA, N.A., Mclean, VA (HSBC) – In October 2010, the OCC issued a C&D order against HSBC for compliance program and BSA violations. This was followed in December 2012 with a $500 million penalty against the bank -- the largest penalty the OCC, or any other federal banking agency, has ever assessed.

In mid-2009, because of the bulk cash findings in the Wachovia investigation, the OCC launched horizontal examinations of banknote operations in other large national banks supervised by the OCC that included HSBC and its transactions with HSBC Mexico.
The Infiltrator is the story of how Mazur helped bring down the unscrupulous bankers who manipulated complex international finance systems to serve drug lords—including Pablo Escobar—corrupt politicians, tax cheats, and terrorists. It is, at its broadest, a shocking chronicle of the rise and fall of perhaps the biggest and most intricate money-laundering operation of all time—an enterprise that cleaned and moved hundreds of millions of dollars a year. At its heart, it’s a stunning and vivid portrait of an undercover life—and the sacrifices it required.
Part 2A: Anti-money Laundering Transaction Reporting and Monitoring

Listen to the podcast:
What can we do, both as an industry group, and from a legislative and regulatory perspective, to gear our focus towards cash transactions and cross-border movement of cash?

The biggest loophole that exists in bulk cash is that many nations have adopted the concepts of currency and monetary interim reports when money has crossed the border — the reporting of cash transactions when they're over certain amounts. But if you look closely at the regulations for bank-to-bank transactions, of course, correspondent banking is exempt. So I can pick up $40 billion. If I'm Wachovia Bank, I can have a correspondent relationship with a house of exchange, a casa de cambio, in Mexico.

Now, a casa de cambio is, technically, a financial institution. It's a money service business. Therefore, under the corresponding banking division, the International Bank will establish an account relationship and service them. Because it is a corresponding banking relationship and a bank-to-bank transaction, no reporting requirements are necessary. This is the way that the international banking community has made a farce of the currency transaction reporting requirements. Yes, the little guys are getting caught. Yes, even just going after the little guys, there's too much information in the system for most governments to be able to deal with

“Do you know who the biggest money launderer in the United States is?"
As a dutiful agent, I thought, here it is. This is going to be a great case. I'm getting ready.

Financial Crimes Enforcement Network
Advisory FIN-2006-A003
Issued:  April 28, 2006  

Subject:  Guidance to Financial Institutions on the Repatriation of Currency Smuggled into Mexico from the United States

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network is issuing this advisory to U.S. financial institutions so that they may better guard against an increasingly prevalent money laundering threat involving the smuggling of bulk U.S. currency into Mexico. This advisory warns U.S. financial institutions of the potential misuse of relationships with U.S. financial institutions by certain Mexican financial institutions, including Mexican casas de cambio. U.S. financial institutions should take reasonable steps to guard against abuse of their financial services by these entities. This advisory is consistent with the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s efforts to ensure that U.S. financial institutions are not used as a conduit for the laundering of proceeds from narcotics trafficking.


Federal law enforcement agencies and the Department of the Treasury recently have observed the emergence of a trend in connection with the laundering of proceeds from narcotics trafficking. This trend has been occasioned, in part, due to the combined efforts of U.S. financial institutions and U.S. law enforcement that have made it increasingly difficult for narcotics traffickers to place their illicit currency proceeds directly into U.S. financial institutions
The Black Market Peso Exchange (BMPE) is a large-scale money laundering system used to launder proceeds of narcotic sales in the United States by Latin American drug cartels by facilitating swaps of dollars in the U.S. for pesos in Colombia through the sale of dollars to Latin America businessmen seeking to buy U.S. goods to export.

2 Mexican casas de cambio, unlike money services businesses in the United States, may act as brokers for financial transactions. For example, a casa de cambio as part of its routine business may direct payment to a U.S. manufacturer for export of commodities to Mexico.

US Fed cash-flow data called underused weapon in war on drugs (Complinet Special Report)
By Guest Contributor
January 31, 2011

By Brett Wolf, Complinet


An investigation by Complinet has revealed details of how the money flows, and a potentially underused tool: the closely held “country flow” data maintained by the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The records, only recently made public, document the international flow of US cash and could help to illuminate the shadowy paths taken by drug money. They are so closely guarded, however, that experts say the ground-level investigators who could make the best use of it never see it, and the issue is so sensitive most government officials are unwilling to talk about it for attribution.

Regulations do not always require banks to report incoming bulk cash shipments to the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, but the cash ultimately makes its way to the Federal Reserve, which does record it. The data can offer law enforcers a more complete picture than FinCEN’s relatively patchy intelligence regarding the rate at which cash is flowing into the US, and which US-based financial institutions are handling it. One way to combat the cross-border flow of illicit “bulk cash” is to determine which banks are acting as conduits while turning a blind eye to its origin, according to Complinet sources.

Robert Mazur, a former undercover Drug Enforcement Administration special agent, said: “The movement of cash to the Fed by banks, domestic and foreign, is a key to tracking the repatriation of drug proceeds.” Mazur’s work infiltrating financial institutions involved in drug-money laundering helped bring down the Bank of Credit and Commerce International in the 1980s.Mazur now runs a company that employs former federal agents to conduct financial investigations for clients. He told Complinet that the data was a “soft spot” in tracking illegal cash and called for wider dissemination among law enforcement agents. The Fed said that it cooperated with law enforcement but also handled the data with appropriate caution, given its sensitive nature.

Car Dealership President Gets Three Years For Laundering Gulf Cartel Cash
Posted on May 10, 2013   

Joel Torres, the president of JM2 Auto Sales in Apopka, Florida, always made sure to hook up the Gulf Cartel in Mexico with nice rides. According to federal prosecutors in Orlando, Florida, Torres and his company’s vice-president Eladio Marroquin-Medina laundered drug proceeds for the Gulf Cartel by selling members cars that were delivered to Texas.  At one point during the money laundering conspiracy, from October 26, 2010 to November 16, 2010, one cartel member brought more than $115,000 in cash into JM2 for the purchase of vehicles.

Los Zetas Money Launderer Transported More Than $130 Million Into The United States
Posted on February 18, 2013   

Attorneys for Filemon Garcia Ayala, the Mexican businessman accused of being a money laundering front for Los Zetas, are fighting the U.S. government from seizing $2 million from their client. Federal prosecutors in Orlando sued Garcia Ayala’s currency-exchange business Prodira Casa De Cambio last year, accusing it of laundering millions of dollars for narco-trafficking organizations. Garcia Ayala, who is currently a fugitive from justice in Mexico, was recently put on the U.S. Treasury Department’s narcotrafficker kingpin black list. That means all his U.S. assets have been frozen and he can’t do business with any American citizens or companies.

According to documents in the lawsuit, Garcia Ayala participated in a scheme to smuggle drug proceeds into Mexico and then funnel the cash back across the border under the guise of a financial-services business.

Once deposited in U.S. banks, the money is then wired to banks across the world.

  Can we call Rubio a major flip-flopper?

Candidate Marco Rubio in 2010: An 'Earned Path to Citizenship is Basically Code for Amnesty'

( - When former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio was running for the Senate in 2010--as a conservative candidate backed by the Tea Party movement--he insisted that illegal aliens inside the United States would need to go home and that giving illegal aliens "an earned path to citizenship," such as his opponent Gov. Charlie Crist, former President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain had advocated, was nothing more than a "code for amnesty."

Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was "code for amnesty" only three years ago.

Basically TPTB have always wanted the North American Union . The plan has ALWAYS been to bring in Millions of Latin Americans to resettle here in the U.S . All these politicians do is lie and lie some more.

When the problem was manageable they refused to build a strong border or deport the millions, Now twenty years later they say they will reinforce the border, AND not deport the millions.... To what benefit is this to the average American? Absolutely nothing.

Go look at that Pew study in the post above , This is the plan for 150 million Latin's in the US by 2050.  They need this immigration bill to keep on schedule. The GOP are in on the plan and are going along because they have too, to stay in the club. With those numbers half of the U.S will have relatives in Mexico or Guatemala , North American Union anyone? Hello? Are you listening?

You are going to see more flip-flops and more lying,

Jun 19, ’13 10:31 AM - Reid Remarks on Immigration Reform

The alternative to earned citizenship – deporting 11 million people or forcing them to stay in the shadows – is neither practical nor humane… And not only is mass deportation impractical – not to mention cruel – it is the wrong approach for our economy.”

Immigration reform that includes a roadmap to citizenship will boost our national economy by $832 billion over the next decade. And the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office says it will reduce the deficit by almost $1 trillion over the next 20 years.”

The North American Union, SPP and NASCO: Erasing America’s Borders
Have you heard of a little-known program called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America? This tri-lateral partnership was signed by President Bush last year without Congressional oversight or public approval. Opponents of the SPP have called it NAFTA on steroids – and we all know how disastrous NAFTA has been for everyone except Mexico. It also appears to be modeled on the ineffective and highly unpopular European Union (unpopular with the people, that is).

Failed Amnesty of 1986
Failed Amnesty Legislation of 1986 Haunts the Current Immigration Bills in Congress

WASHINGTON, May 22 2006 — Day in and day out, as the immigration debate boils, the halls of Congress are haunted by the specter of Senate Bill 1200, the failed amnesty legislation of 1986.

President Ronald Reagan signed that bill into law with great fanfare amid promises that it would grant legal status to illegal immigrants, crack down on employers who hired illegal workers and secure the border once and for all.

Instead, fraudulent applications tainted the process, many employers continued their illicit hiring practices, and illegal immigration surged.
In the late 1980's, immigration officials approved more than 90 percent of the 1.3 million amnesty applications for a specialized program for agricultural workers, even though they had identified possible fraud in nearly a third of those applications.

The general amnesty, which legalized 1.7 million people, worked much more efficiently, though some of its applications raised similar concerns.

Dr. Papademetriou, recalling the difficulties 20 years ago, said: "We're going back to 1986. Do we ever learn anything?"
New INS Report: 1986 Amnesty Increased Illegal Immigration

WASHINGTON (Oct. 12, 2000) ? The report on America's illegal immigration crisis by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), released today on Capitol Hill, highlights the profound unintended consequences of illegal-alien amnesties, just as Congress is considering another such amnesty. The report also makes clear, contrary to the conventional wisdom, that legal and illegal immigration are so intimately connected as to be two sides of the same coin. (Download the report at
Amnesties clearly do not solve the problem of illegal immigration.

About 2.7 million people received lawful permanent residence ("green cards") in the late 1980s and early 1990s as a result of the amnesties contained in the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986.  

But these new INS figures show that by the beginning of 1997 those former illegal aliens had been entirely replaced by new illegal aliens, and that the unauthorized population again stood at more than 5 million, just as before the amnesty.

Understand - What we are seeing for the last 20 years is a "De Facto" North American Union.
What one would see as a problem "Latin American 'Migration' " ie illegal immigration is a sign of "De Facto" NAU...

De facto is a Latin expression that means "by [the] fact". In law, it is meant to mean "in practice but not necessarily ordained by law" or "in practice or actuality, but without being officially established".

It is commonly used in contrast to de jure (which means "concerning the law") when referring to matters of law, governance, or technique (such as standards) that are found in the common experience as created or developed without or contrary to a regulation.

When discussing a legal situation, de jure designates what the law says, while de facto designates action of what happens in practice.

North America's SuperCorridor Coalition (NASCO), often referred to as a principle player in the proposal for a "NAFTA superhighway", has hit out at presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul, branding him as "confused" and stating that it's business "has nothing to do with any of his concerns" over the increasing move towards a North American Union.

There is no dispute over the existence of the NAFTA superhighway, NASCO admits that it already exists in the form of I35 and other connecting roads. NASCO is claiming that the proposal to link Canada, the US and Mexico does not exist on the basis of semantics by insinuating that NAFTA trade corridors do not incorporate the building of a "new" superhighway by NASCO itself.

White House Offers Stealth Campaign to Support Immigration Bill
Published: June 20, 2013

WASHINGTON — The hide-out has no sign on the door, but inside Dirksen 201 is a spare suite of offices the White House has transformed into its covert immigration war room on Capitol Hill.
“We are trying hard not to be heavy handed about what we are doing,” said Cecilia Muñoz, the director of the White House Domestic Policy Council and the president’s point person on immigration

Cecilia Muñoz (born July 27, 1962) is director of the White House Domestic Policy Council. Prior to that, she served as the White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs.

A longtime civil rights advocate, she worked as Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), a nonprofit organization established to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans, overseeing advocacy activities that cover issues of importance to immigrants.[1]

In 2000, she was named a MacArthur Fellow for her work on civil rights and immigration. Muñoz was featured in several films in the documentary series How Democracy Works Now: Twelve Stories.

Notice that some of the same institutions fund Planned Parenthood for the native born population:
Planned Parenthood is also funded by private donors, with a membership base of over 700,000 active donors whose contributions account for approximately one quarter of the organization's revenue.[54] Large donors also contribute a substantial portion of the organization's budget; past donors have included the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Buffett Foundation, Ford Foundation, Turner Foundation, the Cullmans and others.[55][56][57][58]

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's contributions to the organization have been specifically marked to avoid funding abortions.[55] Some, such as the Buffett Foundation, have supported reproductive health that can include abortion services.[55] Pro-life groups have advocated the boycott of donors to Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood has received federal funding since 1970, when President Richard Nixon signed into law the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act, amending the Public Health Service Act. Title X of that law provides funding for family planning services, including contraception and family planning information. The law enjoyed bipartisan support from liberals who saw contraception access as increasing families' control over their lives, and conservatives who saw it as a way to keep people off welfare. Nixon described Title X funding as based on the premise that "no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition

“Our Cause”: Sanger and the Rockefellers

From its inception, the Rockefeller Foundation was at the vanguard of the birth control movement. One of the Foundation’s first official acts was to take over and expand the Bureau of Social Hygiene. The Bureau had been founded two years earlier by Rockefeller “Junior,” with the stated intention of investigating the evils of prostitution. In 1913, the Foundation formally took charge of the Bureau and gave it the task of conducting “research and education on birth control, maternal health, and sex education.” “Cettie,” Junior’s mother and John D’s wife, eagerly furthered the project by giving $25,000 to “promote instruction in social hygiene for female students around the country.” At least as early as 1924, under the leadership of Katharine Davis, the Bureau began funding Margaret Sanger’s proposal for birth control clinical studies by the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau.
The Rockefeller Foundation, to this day, continues to provide significant support to Planned Parenthood. The International PP Medical Bulletin, for example, is primarily underwritten by the Foundation and is even linked to the Rockefeller Foundation website. The Foundation has also sponsored New York University’s Margaret Sanger Papers Project. Most importantly, the Rockefellers determined the very tenure of U.S. and international discussions about birth control and abortion. First, through funding population research and control initiatives at prestigious universities, such as Harvard, Baylor, Case Western Reserve, Chicago, the University of Chile, Columbia, Cornell, Hacettepe University in Turkey, the University of Michigan, North Carolina, Princeton, Tulane and the University of Washington. And, second, through the establishment of the Population Council, the world’s first truly global population control foundation.

Planned Parenthood’s 2008-2009 annual report states that it received $363.2 million in "Government Grants and Contracts." (See page 29.) That’s about one-third of its total revenues for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2009.
Hispanic Anger Should Be Focused At Globalists
Stephen P. Fuller
 May 16, 2010


First, one must consider the origins of the massive globalist front organization “La Raza” (NCLR).

Contrary to urban mythos, the NCLR was not founded in populist fever against imperialism. In fact, it was founded by the antithesis of such an organization; the Ford Foundation, an admitted supporter of globalization and covert funding organization of the National Security Agency.

Second, the NCLR’s power structure is filled by professed globalists. Most notably, Raul Yzaguirre, a life time member of David Rockefeller’s Council on Foreign Relations. With CEO Yzaguirre previously at the helm of the NCLR, the NCLR began expanding from Mexican only representation into further Central and South American representation. And it is at this point where it becomes clear as to the motivation of the NCLR.

The expansion of the NCLR is less about civil liberty and freedom for Hispanics and more directly linked to the U.N.-WHO-WTO-NAFTA plans being implemented through the SPP. And toward such ends, Mr. Yzaguirre just so happens to be a highly valued member of the Independent Task Force on North America, whose main organizational task is the institution of the SPP and ultimately destruction of US sovereignty, or in their own words:

“The Task Force’s central recommendation is establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community, the boundaries of which would be defined by a common external tariff and an outer security perimeter.”

Raul Humberto Yzaguirre (born July 22, 1939 in San Juan, Texas) is an American civil rights activist. Currently a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, he previously served as the president and CEO of the National Council of La Raza from 1974 to 2004.

On November 30, 2009, he was nominated by President Barack H. Obama to be United States Ambassador to the Dominican Republic and was confirmed by the Senate on September 29, 2010.
In 1968, the Southwest Council of La Raza was organized with funding from the Ford Foundation. By 1972 the organization changed its name to the National Council for La Raza (National Council of the people or community in English[3] ) and moved its offices to Washington, D.C. In 1997, the Ford Foundation, then the NCLR's sole funding source, demanded a change in the organization's focus and direction by threatening to withhold funding and forced then-president Henry Santiestevan out of office. In 1974, Yzaguirre was elected the second president of the NCLR. The Ford Foundation was pleased with Yzaguirre and continued to be a top donor of the NCLR throughout his term
Yzaguirre is a member of the boards of the Volunteers of America; Sears, Roebuck & Co.; United Way of America; AARP Services Inc.; National Hispanic Leadership Agenda; and Salvation Army.
In 1979, Yzaguirre was the first Hispanic to receive a Rockefeller Public Service Award for Outstanding Public Service, endowed by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. from the trustees of Princeton University.

Yzaguirre received the Order of the Aztec Eagle in 1993, the highest honor awarded by Mexico to citizens of another nation
Dominican Republic port contract scrutinized, along with senator, eye doctor’s relationship
February 16, 2013

SANTO DOMINGO — When the U.S. Embassy set out to press the Dominican government over a long-stalled contract to provide port security, American officials took on some tough opponents. The deal had languished for more than a decade amid stiff resistance from the American Chamber of Commerce, which represents the interests of American and local businessmen in the Dominican Republic, and the country’s customs authorities.

Ambassador Raul Yzaguirre’s team pushed the government to enforce the contract — which calls for operating X-ray scanners to screen cargo at the country’s ports — despite objections over its merits and its price tag.

The port deal has come under heightened scrutiny in the United States in recent weeks because of its chief investor, a wealthy Florida eye doctor named Salomon Melgen who stood to gain a windfall if the contract was enforced, and his close friend Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.).

Rand Paul Opposes Immigration Reform Even With Border Surge Amendment
 Posted: 06/23/2013

WASHINGTON -- An amendment to put $30 billion towards border security, including 20,000 more agents along the border, is not enough to convince Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to support the bill.

The Kentucky Republican told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that he would oppose comprehensive immigration reform as currently written. A new "border surge" amendment, introduced by Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.), would provide unprecedented investment in that element of reform. But the problem, Paul argued, is not a lack of resources being devoted to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Rather, Paul said his concern continues to be that a pathway to citizenship for the roughly 11 million undocumented citizens would be put in place regardless of whether border security has been achieved. And unless the bill includes his amendment -- which requires Congress to vote on whether border security is sufficient in order for the pathway to commence -- he won't back the reform effort.

"I'm all in favor of immigration reform, but I'm like most conservatives in the country, [in] that I think reform should be dependent on border security first," Paul said

The bill is expected to make it through the Senate well above the 60-vote threshold that it needs to avoid a filibuster. The real hurdle will come when the House of Representatives is asked to move on the legislation.

Senate Debates Border Security Amendment to Immigration Bill
Washington, DC
Monday, June 24, 2013

After a day of behind-the-scenes negotiations on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) set the stage for a key vote today that is aimed at advancing a new border security amendment to the immigration overhaul bill. The vote is set for 5:30pm. The new language, sponsored by Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Hoeven (D-ND) proposes to double the number of border agents and to spend $3.2 billion on equipment in a bid to strengthen the nation’s southern border. Sen. Reid says he is determined to finish work on the bill by the start of the chamber’s Fourth of July recess.
Illegal immigrants who commit crimes face lesser punishment than U.S. citizens


However, as Washington Examiner columnist Byron York recently reported, “the bottom line is an immigrant could have more than three misdemeanor convictions in his background check and still qualify for legalization.”
The Gang of Eight’s bill would allow illegal immigrants who entered the country before Dec. 31, 2011, and committed up to three misdemeanor offenses including but not limited to assault, battery, identity or document fraud, tax evasion, to remain eligible for Registered Provisional Status. Meanwhile, U.S. citizens and persons who entered the country legally could incur up to $100,000 in fines,15 years of imprisonment, or be prohibited to reenter the country for up to 10 years.
Why are Drunken Illegal Aliens Loved by the Gang of Eight?
Submitted by may on June 24, 2013 - 1:10am

The Gang of Eight apparently will not relinquish their desire to include Illegal Aliens with drunken driving records among those who will receive amnesty.  Unless the drunken driver has had three or more DUI convictions, they will get amnesty if the Gang of Eight has their way.

There must be an enormous number of illegal aliens with DUI arrest and conviction records to have created such an interest with the Gang of Eight?

The bill is moving fast, and drunken drivers is only one of the things in this massive bill that the Gang of Eight does not want us to know.  Kurt Schlichter wrote in Townhall,

Under the Gang of 8’s plan, you can stay in America legally – and become a citizen – even if you are a chronic drunk driver.


Illegal immigrant in Milford death ruled incompetent

( – The illegal immigrant who was drunk driving when he hit and dragged a Milford man to his death has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.

Judge Janet Kinton-Walker says Nicolas Guaman's "unique cultural background" and language barrier means that he doesn't understand the court process. The court also said that he lacks the ability to consult with his attorney properly.

The judge ordered Guaman's attorney to find an interpreter and educate him on the court process.

In August 2011, 23-year-old Matthew Denice was hit and dragged to death while riding his motorcycle.
"No, I don't believe it," said Maloney. "In the past, he's had other run-ins with the law. He's been in court multiple times on other charges prior to all this in August 2011 and a Spanish interpreter or no interpreter was used for those hearings and he's always managed just fine."


Sessions Staff: Reid Could Rush Amnesty Bill for Vote Early Next Week

Staff for Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News on Thursday that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid appears to be attempting to position the “Gang of Eight” bill so he can rush it through the Senate next week, before the opposition to the bill from the American people gets any stronger.
As the conservative opposition to the Gang of Eight grows stronger, louder and more organized, though, Reid appears to be positioning himself to move quickly to rush the big government bill across the finish line
Sessions: Immigration Bill Includes 'Shocking Changes'
Friday, 21 Jun 2013 10:55 PM
By Todd Beamon

Sen. Jeff Sessions on Friday blasted the increased border security measures added to the sweeping immigration legislation making its way through the U.S. Senate, noting “some shocking changes that actually further weaken the underlying bill.”

 “We have identified grave and deep flaws in the modified bill,” the Alabama Republican said in a statement. “The special interests who wrote these provisions know exactly what they do and designed them not to work, but I fear some of the senators who sponsored this amendment have no idea they’re even there.”!
Sessions, who has long criticized the legislation, said the new amendment — all 1,187 pages of it — “was dropped on the Senate floor” on Friday. “Members and staff have only until Monday afternoon to read through this modified proposal.”

He charged that the amendment did not change the legislation’s “amnesty-first framework.”

 “Instead, it goes even further and creates an automatic amnesty for future illegal aliens. If you overstay your visa in the future, you can still apply for a green card and become a citizen.

“It is permanent lawlessness,” Session said. “Joined with existing language that restricts future enforcement, it guarantees unending illegal immigration.”

The additional Border Patrol agents cannot be hired before 2017, under the amendment, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has only five years to raise the total number of hires to 20,000


IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 Illegal Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address

And they will hassle one of us for $500 if we don't pay them. WE ARE DOOMED.  THE IRS IS A CRUEL JOKE.

( - The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically occupied by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

| - - - - update - the trick worked Republicants woos out ....

15 Republicans voted in favour of allowing a compromise bill that would toughen border security in exchange for the so-called amnesty.

In total 67 senators voted in favour of proceeding with the revised immigration bill, which includes a border security amendment proposed by moderate Republicans and dubbed a "human fence" or "border surge" because it would double border guard numbers to 40,000.

Twenty seven Republicans voted against the so-called cloture motion, which requires 60 votes to pass and move the bill forward to a final Senate vote this Thursday.

Romanizing America through Illegal Immigration
By Pastor Ralph Ovadal, April 10, 2006

The pope, along with the  Reconquista cadre, views South, Central, and North Americas as being one "from Argentina to Alaska." On several occasions, Pope John Paul II has "consecrated" this "America" to "Our Lady of Guadalupe."

The Mexican people streaming across America's porous southern border are Roman Catholics. It is in the interest of the Vatican to establish as many Roman Catholics as possible in the United States of America. The pope and his partners in spiritual crime care little how the job is done—whether illegally or legally—just so it is done

The Roman Catholic Church is determined to turn Protestant America into a Roman Catholic country, and her best bet to do that is to bring as many Catholics into our nation as possible. (

The Mormon Church and Illegal Immigration
By Ronald W. Mortensen  April 2011

In 2011, the Church continued to assert that it had no position on illegal immigration legislation while at the same time supporting the development and passage of an omnibus immigration bill that included a Utah-specific guest worker/amnesty provision for illegal aliens living and working in the state. The Church found it difficult to maintain its assertions of “no position” when the Tea Party and 9/12 groups that were present for the first time on Capitol Hill became aware of its activities.
Quietly Influencing Public Policy. The LDS Church, through it public affairs arm, is arguably the single most important player in the legislative process in Utah on bills that it takes an interest in. Church representatives have virtually unrestricted access to all elected officials including the governor, state legislators, and Utah’s congressional delegation in Washington.

Many Latino Converts in U.S. Illegally

As a result of the Church’s don’t ask, don’t tell policy, Brigham Young University history Professor Ignacio Garcia estimates that, nationwide, 70 percent of all Latino converts in the past 10 to 15 years are illegal immigrants.
Pandora’s Box: LDS Church, Illegal Immigrant Amnesty, And Eroding Doctrinal Values
March 22, 2013
A few weeks ago, the church doubled-down on amnesty, sent the church’s Second Councillor in the First Presidency, Dieter F. Uchtdorf, to a meeting at the White House.  He exited the meeting endorsing President Obama’s illegal immigration amnesty plan. He also disclosed that some current LDS bishops (local ecclesiastical leaders) are illegal immigrants
Several conservative Republican senators were not persuaded, however. "This bill has no throws $46 billion against the wall" with no guarantees of success, said Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.
A final vote in the Senate on Thursday or Friday would send the issue to the House, where conservative Republicans in the majority oppose citizenship for anyone living in the country illegally.

The Senate bill will create as many as 11 million new legal U.S. residents by 2023.

Contract Costs

They will pay $16 billion in fees to cover the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service’s processing costs. The agency typically spends a quarter of its budget on contracts, meaning the bill may produce $4 billion in contracts. Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC), SAIC Inc. (SAI) and General Dynamics Corp. (GD) were the agency’s top 2012 contractors, according to a Bloomberg Industries analysis by Brian Friel.

The bill would expand the electronic verification system used by contractors to check the legal status of applicants before hiring. The Department of Homeland Security has paid Computer Sciences $111 million since 2007 to run the system. IBM Corp., SAIC and other IT contractors could compete with the company for $1.4 billion in future work, according to Friel’s analysis.
The business community is signaling its support for the bill -- with a push yesterday from the White House.

Obama met with business leaders

“I would share with Senator Grassley deep concern that this immigration bill would say for passports -- which you [Mueller] should be aware of and need to be on top of – only those who produce, issue or distribute three or more passports have committed a crime,” Sessions said.

  By the way, a lot of them don't buy car insurance.

Senate Bill Legalizes Illegal Aliens Who Have Least 2 DUIs - The Senate immigration bill as it currently stands will allow an illegal alien with two convictions “for driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated” to be granted legal status in this country.

If the alien is not then convicted of a third DUI after passage of the bill and before he is naturalized, he will remain eligible to eventually become a U.S. citizen.

And, even if an alien has been convicted of three or more DUIs, the bill allows the secretary of homeland security to waive the 2-DUI limit for illegal aliens seeking legalization if she believes it is “for humanitarian purposes, to ensure family unity, or if such a waiver is otherwise in the public interest.”

The bill brands an alien as a “habitual drunk driver” only after the alien has incurred three DUIs.

Harry Mason Reid - False Left-right  (
Reid firmly rooted in Mormon faith

No other Latter-day Saint has served in higher role in Congress than Nevada Democrat

WASHINGTON -- When the transmission went out in his car, the young law student was ready to quit school and go back home to Nevada.

After all, he had a wife and two babies to support, and expenses in Washington, D.C., were eating him alive. In desperation, he went to see the dean of George Washington University Law School to see if financial help might be available. That's when he found out what President Truman meant when he said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog."

Almost 40 years later, the dean's ice cold response is embedded in his memory.
"Why don't you just drop out of school?" the dean asked.  But Harry Reid did not drop out of school.  

As it turned out, he had one more option: his Mormon church.

The church paid for his transmission. Reid graduated, went on to become a millionaire lawyer and eventually, the majority whip of the United States Senate.  "I'm sorry to admit now I would have quit," Reid said. "I think I was looking for a way out."

Without the church, he said, "I don't think I would have made it out of law school or been able to do as well with my family."  As a Democrat, Reid is unusual among Mormon politicians. For example, there are five Latter-day Saints in the Senate. All are Republicans except Reid.  The first time Reid's son Leif attended a Latter-day Saint church in Washington, D.C., a member asked him to attend a Young Republicans rally.

When Leif declined, and explained he was a Democrat, the church member replied, "I didn't know a Mormon could be a Democrat."

Despite the perception that Mormons are inextricably linked to the GOP, the senator said he believes voter registration between Democrats and Republicans in the church is fairly even. Reid also insists it is easier for a Democrat to be a good Latter-day Saint than it is for a Republican to be a good Latter-day Saint.

"One of the reasons I feel so strongly about the philosophy of the Democratic Party is that we're concerned about people who have little," Reid said. "Look at the programs we've pushed: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid. Republicans opposed those, every one of them. ... I don't see how a person who cares about their fellow man could oppose these programs."

Another Latter-day Saint, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, disagrees.  "Let's put it this way. I think that's pure bunk," Hatch said

Under the Gang of 8’s backroom immigration deal with Senators Schumer, Corker and Hoeven, formerly illegal immigrants who are amnestied will be eligible to work, but will not be eligible for ObamaCare. Employers who would be required to pay as much as a $3,000 penalty for most employees who receive an ObamaCare healthcare “exchange” subsidy, would not have to pay the penalty if they hire amnestied immigrants.
Consequently, employers would have a significant incentive to hire or retain amnestied immigrants, rather than current citizens, including those who have recently achieved citizenship via the current naturalization process.
The issue is really an “interaction effect” of the immigration proposal and ObamaCare itself.
Beginning in January, businesses with 50 or more full-time employees, that do not currently offer healthcare benefits that are considered “acceptable” by the Obama administration, must pay a penalty if at least one of their workers obtains insurance on a new government-run “exchange.” The penalty can be as much as $3,000 per employee.
Many employers have been preparing to cope with the new regulations by slashing the hours of full-timers to part-time status. Since “full-time,” in the language of ObamaCare, is averaging 30 hours per week, employers will, in general, receive the penalty if they have 50 or more employees who are working an average of 30 hours per week.
If the immigration bill becomes law, many employers could receive incentives of hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire amnestied immigrants over American citizens. In addition, these newly legalized immigrants could work “full-time,” an advantage for companies and businesses as well, while employers could lay off or diminish to “part-time” status, American workers.
Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner explains that he spoke with Alex Conant of Sen. Marco Rubio’s staff in April about the wrinkle, and was told that this was an issue that could be addressed during the legislative process.
“[T]he scenario you raise illustrates both the absurdity of ObamaCare, and why we have insisted on a lengthy process to review this legislation before any votes are taken,” Conant emailed Klein. “We always expected there might be a need for amendments to fix technical problems, and we’ll be interested in seeing what sort of amendments might be offered to improve this part of the legislation without giving ObamaCare to illegals- something Sen. Rubio has always said he will not support.”

Immigration reform critics flood Senate with phone calls

Critics of the Democrat-led immigration rewrite are bombarding Senate offices with thousands of phone calls, and advocates say those calls are keeping numerous wayward GOP Senators from joining the Democrats’ immigration bill.

“Five hundred [calls] yesterday, and right now, they’re just ringing non-stop,” said an upset staffer at the office of Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker, who has voted on both sides of the dispute.

Protestors have sent “hundreds or thousands” of calls to Ohio Republican Sen. Robert Portman’s Republican office, a staff member told The Daily Caller.

The calls have stiffened the spine of GOP Senators who might otherwise bend to pressure from business groups and from influential people in their home state, such as editorial writers and clerics, said Roy Beck, executive director of NumbersUSA, which provides a free phone service for Americans who oppose the massive rewrite.
The Senate’s Majority Leader, Sen. Harry Reid, is pushing to pass the bill prior to the July 4 break because the public is learning more about the details of the bill, said William Gheen, head of the ALIPAC, or the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC.
“The calls [to Congress] are going our way… and if the bill can be delayed another week, it probably won’t pass,” Gheen said.

Without the calls, the Democratic leadership would have gotten up to 85 votes in the critical Monday cloture-vote, leaving only 15 against amnesty and guest-workers, Beck estimated

We’ve been getting hundreds of calls,” said a staffer working for Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander, another Senator who supported the Monday cloture vote
Another round of critical votes is expected on Wednesday, and barring a major development, Reid will get sixty-plus votes for the bill – a win for Reid and his deputy, New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Senate Votes To Limit Debate on Immigration Bill
Washington, DC
Wednesday, June 26, 2013

By a vote of 67 - 31, the Senate agreed to limit debate on the immigration bill and amendments. A vote on final passage of the bill could be taken on Thursday or Friday, depending on whether opponents of the bill ask for 30 hours of debate. In two previous votes, the Senators by a vote of 68 - 30 agreed to waive certain Senate budget rules for the bill and they agreed by a vote of 69 - 29 to adopt an amendment containing Corker-Hoeven border security language.

The Corker-Hoeven amendment includes five triggers that must be met before undocumented aliens can begin to apply for citizenship.

Following party lunches yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he hoped to wrap up the immigration bill by Thursday or Friday, before the July 4th recess as he anticipated.

Rand Paul: Immigration Reform Bill Can Still Be Blocked or Reformed in the House

Jun. 25, 2013
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul does not support the immigration reform bill in its current form, and has said it’s “dead on arrival” in the Republican-controlled House.

On “Wilkow! Tuesday Paul said the bill will not slow down illegal immigration, but actually increase it as the bill reduces the work visa program for agriculture which Paul believes many illegal immigrants could use for legal entrance into this country.

On TheBlaze TV Tuesday, Paul also discussed the amendments he tried to add to the immigration bill, and how House Speaker John Boehner can block or reform the bill as it is now in order to make it acceptable for a majority of Republicans.

Immigration Agents ask Public Lawmakers TO OPPOSE BILL on Eve of Expected Vote: (

The Senate is the expected to take up the bill for vote on Thursday at the earliest, or by Friday, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid continues rushing it across the finish line.

In a joint statement on Wednesday evening, USCIS National Council president Kenneth Palinkas and ICE National Council president Chris Crane said the bill, if it ever became law, would be putting politics over public safety.

“ICE officers and USCIS adjudications officers have pleaded with lawmakers not to adopt this bill, but to work with us on real, effective reforms for the American people,” Crane and Palinkas said in their statement.

“The Schumer-Rubio-Corker-Hoeven proposal will make Americans less safe and it will ensure more illegal immigration—especially visa overstays—in the future. It provides legalization for thousands of dangerous criminals while making it more difficult for our officers to identity public safety and national security threats," they explained.

Nevada's Dean Heller supports immigration reform bill (watch videos)
Jun. 26, 2013

Today, U.S. Senator Dean Heller, R-Nev., spoke on the Senate floor in support of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, his office said.

Just last week, the U.S. Senate agreed to Senator Heller’s amendment (#1227) to include the southwestern state of Nevada on the Southern Border Security Commission, Heller's office said. Heller’s amendment ensures that the Southern Border Security Commission, which is created in the underlying bill, is fully representative of issues affecting southern border and southwestern states, his office said.
Immigration bill clears final filibuster
By Stephen Dinan -The Washington Times Thursday, June 27, 2013

Senators beat back a final filibuster of the immigration bill Thursday afternoon, clearing the way for the measure to pass in a final vote at 4 p.m. — intact and almost exactly as the Gang of Eight wrote it.

The 68-32 filibuster vote saw all of the chamber’s Democrats and 14 Republicans vote for it in a signal of how successful the bill’s authors were in preventing the GOP from changing the it during the floor debate.

But his counterpart, Sen. Mitch McConnell, the GOP’s floor leader, said the bill cannot win his support because it still falls short of guaranteeing there won’t be a repeat of the 1986 amnesty, when the government legalized illegal immigrants but didn’t follow through on enforcement, leaving the problem to grow into today’s population of 11 million new illegal immigrants.

“It just doesn’t say to me, at least, that we’ve learned the lessons of 1986, and that we won’t find ourselves right back in the same situation we found ourselves in after that reform,” Mr. McConnell said. “If you can’t be reasonably certain that the border is secure as a condition of legalization, there’s just no way to be sure that millions more won’t follow the illegal immigrants who are already here. As other have rightly pointed out, you also can’t be sure that future congresses won’t just reverse whatever assurances we make today about border security in the future

Our new Dream Act Citizen's...

Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera (born December 25, 1954,[1] or April 4, 1957[2]) is a Mexican drug lord who heads the Sinaloa Cartel, a criminal organization named after the Mexican Pacific coast state of Sinaloa where it was initially formed. Known as "El Chapo Guzmán" ("Shorty Guzmán", pronounced: [el ˈtʃapo gusˈman]) for his 1.68 m (5 ft 6 in) stature, he became Mexico's top drug kingpin in 2003 after the arrest of his rival Osiel Cárdenas of the Gulf Cartel, and is now considered "The most powerful drug trafficker in the world," by the United States Department of the Treasury

His habit of moving from place to place allowed him to nurture contacts throughout the country. He was now operating in 17 of 31 Mexican states. With his business expanding, he placed his trusted friend Ignacio "Nacho" Coronel Villarreal in charge of methamphetamine production; this way Guzmán could continue being the boss of bosses. Coronel Villarreal proved so reliable in the Guzmán business that he became known as "Crystal King

World Drug Report Reveals The Staggering Extent Of North America's Meth Problem
Michael Kelley      Jun. 26, 2013

From 2010 to 2011 worldwide seizures of methamphetamine by authorities grew by 73% — from 51 tons to 88 tons — and 61% (54 tons) of all seizures were reported by Mexico and the U.S.

From the report (emphasis ours):

The highest methamphetamine seizures were reported by Mexico, where seizures more than doubled, from 13 tons to 31 tons [i.e. the most in the world], and surpassed for the first time those of the United States which seized 23 tons in 2011, up from 15 tons in 2010. ...

Most methamphetamine laboratories continue to be reported by the United States, where their numbers quadrupled from 2,754 in 2010 to 11,116 in 2011.

Basically, Mexico and the U.S. combined are a meth powerhouse.


The Sinaloa Cartel, led by Mexican kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, accounts for 80% of the U.S. meth trade
It should be noted that there are allegations that Guzmán, who was on the Forbes' list of billionaires from 2009 to 2012, works with the U.S. government.
In court documents, a high-ranking member of Sinaloa currently in U.S. custody asserted that Guzmán is a U.S. informant, Sinaloa was "given carte blanche to continue to smuggle tons of illicit drugs into Chicago," and Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals.
The claims were corroborated by a Mexican foreign service officer who doubled as a confidential source for the U.S. security firm Stratfor when he alleged that the U.S. government works with Mexican cartels to traffic drugs into the U.S., and that in 2010 the U.S. sided with Sinaloa in an attempt to limit the violence in Mexico.
Taking Back the Streets: ICE and Local Law Enforcement Target Immigrant Gangs

History of MS-13

During the 1980s and 1990s more than two million immigrants arrived in the United States from Central America, fleeing civil wars and difficult economic conditions. Most settled in the Los Angeles area; in that region alone during the 1980s, the Salvadoran population increased tenfold, from 30,000 to 300,000. Very few of the Central American migrants had been granted refugee, asylum, or other legal status; an overwhelming majority of the new arrivals settled as illegal aliens. 20

House GOP: Senate Immigration Vote Doesn't Put Pressure On Us
 Posted: 06/28/2013

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) rejected the notion on Friday that House Republicans will feel pressure -- even a little -- to pass immigration reform just because the Senate passed a sweeping bill on Thursday.

"The assumption that because there's a Senate bill, the House will feel the pressure, individual members of the House will feel pressure to support that bill, frankly just is not accurate," he said at an event hosted by Bloomberg Government and the National Restaurant Association. "I think the real pressure is the pressure to fix an immigration system that's broken."

Diaz-Balart and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), two members of a House group working on a comprehensive reform bill, said at the event that their efforts haven't stalled, despite a setback earlier this month when Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) dropped out of negotiations. Diaz-Balart is a strong supporter of immigration reform, and said he remains optimistic the House can get it done. But they're not discussing details, or how their bill might differ from the "gang of eight" bill that passed the Senate, or when the legislation will be released.

"It will be done when it is done," Lofgren said. "It's more important to get it right than to get it done by a particular deadline."
"The House is not going to take up and vote on whatever the Senate passes," Boehner told reporters at a press conference on Thursday. "For any legislation, including a conference report, to pass the House, it's going to have to be a bill that has the support of a majority of our members," he added later, referring to Republicans

GOP's courtship of Silicon Valley put to the test in immigration fight
By Jennifer Martinez    -    07/12/13 06:00 AM ET

Industry insiders are watching the congressional battle over immigration reform closely, as Facebook, Google, Microsoft and other titans of the tech world work to protect key provisions in the Senate bill.

The tech industry got almost all of what it wanted from the Senate, and is on the verge of a major victory — as long as its priorities reach President Obama's desk.
House Republican “Young Guns” Eric Cantor (Va.), Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) and Paul Ryan (Wis.) have made pilgrimages to Facebook, Google and other top companies to meet with industry leaders, bask in the entrepreneurial culture and notch “cool points” for the party brand. Along they way, they’ve banked hefty sums from a region that had long been a stronghold for Democrats.

One of the companies with a major stake in the outcome of the immigration push is Facebook, which has rolled out the red carpet for Republicans during their trips to the Valley.  

The company’s political action committee (PAC) has showered more than $100,000 in campaign cash on members of Congress this year, with contributions going to Cantor, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and leading Democrats, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is also tapping his vast personal fortune to win passage of a bill that would help his company hire more foreign-born talent.

Zuckerberg has marshaled tech executives behind, a new lobbying organization that’s dedicated to passing comprehensive immigration reform. The group boasts an A-list roster of tech donors, including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and investor John Doerr.


“Tech has sort of stuck its neck out on getting immigration done and getting it done in this Congress,” said a tech insider.

The industry has labored for years to win changes to the immigration rules for highly skilled and educated foreign workers. Specifically, tech companies have pressed lawmakers to free up more green cards and increase the annual H-1B visa cap for skilled foreign workers.
One of those bills includes a proposal from tech industry champion Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that would set aside 55,000 green cards for foreign graduates with advanced degrees in technical fields and raise the annual H-1B visa cap to 155,000.

The bill is modeled after another high-skilled immigration measure from Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) that passed the House last year.

Janet Napolitano’s new gig at the University of California will also be interesting for the state’s premiere higher education system because she comes from law enforcement. In recent years, there have been a series of student protests at UC campuses. One incident at the University of California, Davis involved officers who were caught on video dousing peacefully protesting students with pepper spray, while prodding them with batons. This incident prompted the previous UC President Mark Yudof to order a review of police procedures.

Napolitano is perceived as a “cop,” so if she’s tough on students, she’s likely to face some backlash. Worth noting: Napolitano does not have professional experience in academia

House Speaker John Boehner reaffirmed that House Republicans planned to take a gradual, “step by step” approach to overhauling the country’s immigration system, but he didn’t put the quest at the top of his list of legislative priorities for the year
In listing his top priorities for the rest of the year, Mr. Boehner cited deficit reduction, tax law changes and an effort to overhaul the country’s entitlement systems. He didn’t mention the continuing push to tackle immigration.

The speaker repeatedly declined to say to say whether he would support a bill that provided a route to citizenship for the 11 million or so immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally, the primary sticking point between House Republicans and the Senate bill, which passed last month

Police, feds indict alleged Pomona methamphetamine ring tied to Mexical drug cartel
Rina Palta | August 23rd, 2012, 2:16pm

A federal indictment unsealed Thursday brought charges against 27 members of an alleged meth smuggling operation out of Pomona and Ontario, California. In a predawn raid, federal and local agencies arrested 16 of the indicted defendants. Officials are calling the bust "Operation Crystal Light."

A few additional defendants were already in custody on separate charges and four are fugitives. Police are looking specifically for the alleged ring leader, Jose Juan Garcia Barron — who they say has ties to the Mexican drug carted La Familia Michoacana (LFM).

Authorities say Barron would purchase meth from a supplier in Mexico and arrange its shipment to the U.S., where another defendant, Martin Barron Alcazar, would receive the shipment and direct it to a stash house in Ontario.
Meth, which is highly addictive, is probably the most problematic drug in Southern California at the moment, Nelson said. He called Thursday's bust "a dent, a good dent," in area meth trafficking.

Also on Thursday, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration announced a memorandum of cooperation with Mexican officials on cracking down on meth production and smuggling. The agreement calls for greater intelligence-sharing on the drug, as well as joint training for law enforcement from both countries. The US State Department has pledged $12 million to the Mexican government to help with a crackdown.

According to the DEA, "Mexico has experienced a dramatic increase in clandestine methamphetamine lab and precursor chemical seizures nearly 1,000 percent between 2010 and 2011." In addition, in 2011, "Southwest border seizures of meth totaled 7,338 kilograms, more than twice the amount seized in 2009."
Witness details slayings by alleged Pomona gang members
Will Bigham, Staff Writer
Posted:   04/06/2011 07:43:02 PM PDT

LOS ANGELES - The key witness in a triple-murder case spent nearly the entire day Wednesday on the witness stand, detailing two killings she saw as well as the frequent beatings and rapes she allegedly suffered at the hand of one of the defendants.
The woman, a former Las Vegas resident whose name is withheld for fear of retaliation, testified during a preliminary hearing for three alleged Pomona gang members charged with murder.

Robert Caballero, 33, is charged with three counts of murder for the following killings: the Sept. 29, 2009, shooting death of Armando Vidana, the strangulation of Lorraine Minjarez on Nov. 5, 2009, and the beating death the following day of David Padilla.

Two other men - 28-year-old Pete Trejo and 20-year-old Andrew Valenzuela - are each charged with one count of murder for allegedly assisting Caballero in one of the killings.

Much of the Las Vegas woman's testimony in the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center bordered on surreal. She said she was held captive by Caballero and kept awake for several consecutive days around the time Minjarez and Padilla were killed, when the woman was 18.

"I was with him at all times," she testified. "I wasn't to be left alone."

She said she was injected with methamphetamine against her will by Caballero, and was high for several straight days. Caballero was also constantly using meth, the woman said.

I think we missed this story: ( millions of dollars in tax returns from thousands of illegal aliens going  to just a few addresses the average return was a couple of thousand dollars .... hmmm

IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address
June 21, 2013 - The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

Other locations on the IG’s Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877.

Since 1996, the IRS has issued what it calls Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to two classes of persons:

1) non-resident aliens who have a tax liability in the United States, and
2) aliens living in the United States who are “not authorized to work in the United States.”

The IRS has long known it was giving these numbers to illegal aliens, and thus facilitating their ability to work illegally in the United States. For example, the Treasury Inspector General’s Semiannual Report to Congress published on Oct. 29, 1999—nearly fourteen years ago—specifically drew attention to this problem.
“The IRS issues Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to undocumented aliens to improve nonresident alien compliance with tax laws. This IRS practice seems counter-productive to the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s (INS) mission to identify undocumented aliens and prevent unlawful alien entry,” TIGTA warned in that long-ago report.
The inspector general’s 2012 audit report on the IRS’s handling of ITINs was spurred by two IRS employees who went to members of Congress "alleging that IRS management was requiring employees to assign Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN) even when the applications were fraudulent.”

In an August 2012 press release accompanying the audit report, TIGTA said the report “validated” the complaints of the IRS employees.

“TIGTA’s audit found that IRS management has not established adequate internal controls to detect and prevent the assignment of an ITIN to individuals submitting questionable applications,” said Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. “Even more troubling, TIGTA found an environment which discourages employees from detecting fraudulent applications.”
TIGTA said there were 154 addresses around the country that appeared on 1,000 or more ITIN applications made to the IRS

"Do not these facts show that what American work-men have to fear is not the sale in our goods market of the products of 'cheap foreign labor,' but the transference to our labor market of that labor itself? Under the conditions existing over the greater part of the civilized world, the minimum of wages is fixed by what economists call the 'standard of comfort'—that is to say, the poorer the mode of life to which laborers are accustomed the lower are their wages and the greater is their ability to compel a reduction in any labor market they enter. What, then, shall we say of that sort of 'protection of American working-men' which, while imposing duties upon goods, under the pretense that they are made by "pauper labor," freely admits the 'pauper laborer' himself?

"The incoming of the products of cheap labor is a very different thing from the incoming of cheap labor. The effect of the one is upon the production of wealth, increasing the aggregate amount to be distributed; the effect of the other is upon the distribution of wealth, decreasing the proportion which goes to the working classes. We might permit the free importation of Chinese commodities without in the slightest degree affecting wages; but, under our present conditions, the free immigration of Chinese laborers would lessen wages.

"Let us imagine under the general conditions of modern civilization, one country of comparatively high wages, and another country of comparatively low wages. Let us, in imagination, bring these countries side by side, separating them only by a wall which permits the free transmission of commodities, but is impassable for human beings. Can we imagine, as protectionist notions require, that the high wage country would do all the importing and the low wage country all the exporting, until the demand for labor so lessened in the one country that wages would fall to the level of the other? That would be to imagine that the former country would go on pushing its commodities through this wall and getting back nothing in return. Clearly the one country would export no more than it got a return for, and the other could import no more than it gave a return for. What would go on between the two countries is the exchange of their respective productions, and, as previously pointed out, what commodities passed each way in this exchange would be determined, not by the difference in wages between the two countries, nor yet by differences between them in cost of production, but by differences in each country in the comparative cost of producing different things. This exchange of commodities would go on to the mutual advantage of both countries, increasing the amount which each obtained, but no matter to what dimensions it grew, how could it lessen the demand for labor or have any effect in reducing wages?

"Now let us change the supposition and imagine such a barrier between the two countries as would prevent the passage of commodities, while permitting the free passage of men. No goods produced by the lower-paid labor of the one country could now be brought into the other; but would this prevent the reduction of wages? Manifestly not. Employers in the higher wage country, being enabled to get in laborers willing to work for less, could quickly lower wages.

"What we may thus see by aid of the imagination accords with what we do see as a matter of fact. In spite of the high duties which shut out commodities on the pretense of protecting American labor, American workmen in all trades are being forced into combinations to protect themselves by checking the competition of the labor market. Our protective tariff on commodities raises the price of commodities, but what raising there is of wages has been accomplished by trades-union and the Knights of Labor. Break up these organizations and what would the tariff do to prevent the forcing down of wages in all the now organized trades?"

USSA - Stalin's Soviet Deportations / Immigration Policy  -  mass importations from Latin America.
Stalin’s Ethnic Deportations—and the Gerrymandered Ethnic Map


An earlier GeoCurrents post on Chechnya mentioned that the Chechens were deported from their homeland in the North Caucasus to Central Asia in February 1944. However, the Chechen nation was not the only one to suffer such a fate under Stalin’s regime.

The early Bolsheviks generally believed that a nationality had to be associated with a distinct territory, rejecting the “extraterritorial national-cultural autonomy” approach, championed by Austrian Marxists like Otto Bauer. Thus, Lenin and his successors sought to provide a degree of territorially based autonomy to the country’s various ethno-national groups, assuming that the entire system would eventually wither away as a new pan-Soviet society emerged.

But for Stalin, such a Soviet identity could not emerge fast enough to suit his purposes. As a result, he took to gerrymandering the country’s ethnic map by moving whole nationalities around like chess pieces on the board (Pohl 1999).

The ultimate motivation behind Stalin’s policy of continuing deportation, however, was twofold.

First, the need for cheap labor to explore and exploit the natural resources of Siberia and
to speed up Soviet industrialization program meant that increasing numbers of people had to be sent wherever those economic needs arose.
Most of the mass deportation occurred in 1930s and 1940s, when numerous ethnic groups were removed from their historical homelands.
In 1939, the Soviets  invaded and annexed eastern Poland (known as Kresy to the Polish) just as the German invaded western Poland, marking the official start of World War II in 1939. From 1939 to 1941, nearly 1.5 million people were deported from this region by the Soviet regime, including more than 900,000 Poles. Estimates of the number of Poles who died at the hands of the Soviets range from 350,000 to nearly a million.
After Stalin’s death, Nikita Khrushchev’s government “rehabilitated” most of the exiled ethnic groups, permitting some to return to their homelands

Police: Elderly woman who was beaten, raped - dies
 UPDATED 1:01 PM CDT Jul 25, 2013
OMAHA, Neb. —The 93-year-old woman who police said was beaten and raped in her own home earlier this week has died.

Sergio Martinez-Perez, 19, who faces charges in connection with the crime, is being held without bond in Douglas County.
Prosecutors said Martinez-Perez, who doesn't speak English, beat and sexually assaulted Louise Sollowin in her home Sunday.
She died Wednesday.

Investigators said Martinez-Perez is not a legal resident of the United States, and that his country of origin is not yet clear.
The victim’s family said a detective told them Perez has been in the country for about four months.
Man to be charged with first-degree murder in connection with rape, death of 93-year-old
Omaha police say they found Martinez-Perez naked and on top of Sollowin. He had beaten her and broken several bones in her face – and blood covered the room, authorities allege.
Louise Sollowin spent 50 years helping her sister fire up the oven at Orsi's Italian Bakery, where her love of the family business kept her going well into her 80s.

Sollowin baked and cleaned, chatting almost exclusively in Italian with her sister, Frances Orsi, whose husband, Claudio, ran the bakery for decades. Sollowin's husband, Joe, did the books.
Sergio Martinez-Perez, 19, beat and raped Sollowin because he had been drinking much of the previous night and was “angry with women,” a prosecutor told a Douglas County Court judge Wednesday.  Martinez-Perez told police that he beat and raped the victim, the prosecutor said
Martinez-Perez, who has no permanent address, told Harmon through an interpreter that he has been working in the area as a roofer.
Sollowin's family said a detective told him that Martinez-Perez had been living in Omaha for four months.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has asked the jail to hold him, an official there said. That is often an indication that the federal agency is questioning an inmate's immigration status. Authorities had not released Martinez-Perez's immigration status as of late Thursday morning.

RACINE — Congressman Paul Ryan was back in Racine today, holding a bilingual Hispanic Listening Session on federal issues.

Ryan, a Janesville Republican whose district includes all of Racine County, was at St. Patrick’s Church, McCarthy Hall, 1111 Douglas Ave. from 12-1:30 p.m. today, fielding concerns from the Hispanic community on federal government issues.

The focus was immigration reform, where Ryan has emerged as a leader among House Republicans.

The listening session gave people the chance to ask questions about this and other issues in both English and Spanish. It marked one of more than 15 Hispanic listening sessions the congressman has held since being elected, including past bilingual sessions, according to estimates from Ryan’s office.

Inside Boehner's Strategy to Slow Walk Immigration to the Finish Line
House leaders put off immigration votes until after August recess, seeing delay as the best way to pass reform.

Keeping immigration on the back-burner helps avoid a recess filled with angry town-hall meetings reminiscent of the heated August 2009 protests where the backlash against health care reform coalesced. Doing nothing also starves Democrats of a target, Republicans argue.

Top GOP donors tell party to legalize illegals...  (

Nearly a hundred top Republican donors and Bush administration officials sent a letter to the House GOP on Tuesday urging lawmakers to pass a bill that legalizes illegal immigrants, arguing that the current system is already allowing them to stay and so it makes sense to register them and bring them into the system.

The donors, led by former Bush administration Cabinet officials Carlos Gutierrez and Spencer Abraham, also said that immigrants are potential Republican voters who can be won over — if the party can be seen as welcoming to immigrants.


Both the business leaders and donors appeared to be sensing the momentum for immigration legislation slipping away, little more than a month after the Senate passed its version on a bipartisan 68-32 vote.
Mr. Gutierrez, a former secretary of commerce who led Tuesday’s donor letter, was point man on the 2007 effort, which failed in a stunning bipartisan filibuster on the Senate floor.

Also signing Tuesday’s donor letter were Karl Rove, who was Mr. Bush’s political adviser; a number of ambassadors who served Mr. Bush; former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge; former Vice President Dan Quayle; and several former governors

The nine were let out on parole having convinced immigration officials that they had a well-founded fear that being deported to Mexico would subject them to harm or death. They were all allowed to return home pending an immigration judge's decision on their asylum claim, a ruling that could take years.

"I am good, very excited. It's a big surprise," Maria Peniche, 22, one of the nine activists, told the Associated Press. "This opens a path for other Dreamers in Mexico," she said, using the term for young undocumented people who hope to qualify for citizenship under the Dream act.

Pelosi Pushes To Make California Sanctuary For Illegals...
By Chris Megerian
August 14, 2013, 11:24 a.m.

SACRAMENTO -- Twenty-eight of California's congressional representatives are throwing their weight behind state legislation that would make it harder to deport immigrants who are in the country illegally.

The representatives -- all Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco -- sent a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown urging him to sign the bill if it reaches his desk.

The bill, known as the Trust Act, "establishes a bright line standard between local law enforcement and federal immigration enforcement" and would "continue California's proud tradition of being a leader on smart and sensible policies," the letter says.

The representatives said unnecessary deportations have "reduced the willingness of immigrant and non-immigrant crime victims and witnesses to cooperate with local law enforcement, and consequently has diminished public safety."

Among the letter's signatories are Reps. Zoe Lofgren and Mike Honda both of San Jose, and recently departed members of the state Legislature now in Washington such as Reps. Alan Lowenthal of Long Beach and Jared Huffman of San Rafael.

The bill (AB 4), authored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), would limit local law enforcement's role in working with federal authorities to begin deportation proceedings.

California congressional representatives had urged Brown to sign a previous version of the legislation last year, but the governor vetoed it over concerns it was too broad. It has since been amended to expand the types of crimes and misdemeanors that could trigger the deportation process.

The bill is now awaiting a vote on the Senate floor

Norway's anti-immigration party likely to enter government this week

Survivors of the Utøya island massacre in 2011, perpetrated by an anti-immigration extremist, are concerned this will lead to a rise in social hostility
The Guardian, Sunday 8 September 2013 09.12 EDT

Norway's anti-immigration Progress party is likely to come to power for the first time as junior partner in a centre-right coalition, according to opinion polls about Monday's parliamentary election.

Despite a backlash against the party following the massacre of 69 people by Anders Breivik in 2011, Progress has recovered in the polls, appealing to one in seven voters. Breivik, 34, was a member of the Progress party in his youth before he lost faith in it and in democracy, and adopted the radical anti-Muslim views that underpinned his attacks.

Under the leadership of Siv Jensen, it is poised to enter government as a junior partner in a coalition led by Erna Solberg, a Conservative who is potentially Norway's next prime minister.


Progress has softened its image in recent years, dumping some of its more firebrand spokesmen and positioning itself as a mainstream party of the right. All parties have refrained from explicit mentions of Breivik's attacks to avoid being seen as using the tragedy for political gain. But it has emerged in coded language during discussions about national security and investment decisions.

Morten Høglund, Progress's foreign affairs spokesman, confronted the issue after saying that his party would seek to invest the country's oil revenues in "roads, rail and police helicopters".

"If you look at the tragedy on July 22, the lack of police helicopters was one of the factors for not getting police to Utøya as quickly as we would like," he said. "But we are also talking about hospitals and other kinds of investment."

'The Code of the Knights Templar of Michoacan'
Mexico cartel issues booklets for proper conduct
The Knights Templar Cartel (Spanish: Caballeros Templarios) is a Mexican criminal organization composed of remnants of the defunct La Familia Michoacana drug cartel based in the Mexican state of Michoacán.[3][4]

After the death of Nazario Moreno González, leader of the La Familia Michoacana cartel,[4] the other cartel co-founders, Enrique Plancarte Solís and Servando Gómez Martínez, formed an offshoot of La Familia calling itself Caballeros Templarios (or Knights Templar).[3][4][5] Dionicio Loya Plancarte would also join.[6]

The Knights Templar Cartel indoctrinates its operatives to "fight and die" for "social justice".[7] They have taken full control of the now extinct La Familia Michoacana operations in states including Michoacán, Guerrero, State of Mexico, and Morelos. Its armed wing is La Resistencia.
Patterned After the Knights Templar, Drug Cartel Issues "Code of Conduct"
Published July 20, 2011

MORELIA, Mexico –  Patterned after the most famous of the medieval Western Christian military orders, a drug cartel in Mexico, calling itself the Knights Templar, is publicly appealing to Mexicans living in Michoacán.

Federal police said they seized copies of the cartel's "code of conduct" booklet during an arrest of cartel members in the western state of Michoacán last week, but refused to release its contents Tuesday, saying they didn't want fan the flames of the quasi-religious movement.

But a copy of the 22-page "The Code of the Knights Templar of Michoacán," illustrated with knights on horseback bearing lances and crosses, was obtained by The Associated Press this week. It says the group "will begin a challenging ideological battle to defend the values of a society based on ethics."

The Knights Templar have been blamed for murders, extortion, drug trafficking and attacks on police. Analysts say the propaganda is part of an effort to transform a drug cartel into a social movement, along the lines of what right-wing paramilitary groups did in Colombia in the 1990s against leftist rebels — a fight in which both sides used the drug trade to finance their causes

update - Illegal Drivers Lic , passed waiting for super majority Brown to sign ...
Driver’s licenses may be legalized for California undocumented immigrants

Three major bills passed by the California legislature await approval from Gov. Jerry Brown: Assembly Bill 60, which grants driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants and allows them to obtain liability insurance that would protect them and others in automobile accidents; AB 1024, which allows undocumented immigrants to practice law and AB 4 (also known as the Trust Act), which prohibits local law enforcement agencies from holding nonviolent offenders for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The bill, authored by Watsonville Assemblyman Luis Alejo, passed the state assembly after a few last-minute changes, including the requirement that the new licenses carry a disclaimer identifying the bearer as eligible for driving benefits but not employment or other benefits.

Currently, nine other states and the District of Columbia issue licenses to undocumented immigrants. Only New Mexico and Washington state issue licenses without a disclaimer.
California's [illegal] immigrant driver's license bill is driving debate
Some say measure sent to Gov. Brown amounts to 'quasi-amnesty' for those in the country illegally.
By Richard Winton, Kate Mather and Hector Becerra
September 13, 2013, 6:23 p.m.

California's move to allow more than a million immigrants to receive driver's licenses marks a significant advance in the long campaign to decriminalize the day-to-day lives of those in this country illegally.

The plan was the most prominent of several pieces of legislation approved this week aimed at strengthening the rights of [illegal] immigrants in California. But it also brought new protests from critics who say the state is protecting undocumented workers at the expense of federal immigration laws.

The bill, sent to Gov. Jerry Brown late Thursday, comes after some of California's top law enforcement officials including Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck and L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca expressed strong support for the idea. They argued that immigrants should not fear cooperating with police or feel harassed simply because of their immigration status

Activists have complained for years that undocumented immigrants stopped at drunk-driving checkpoints have had their cars impounded even if the drivers are sober because they don't have valid licenses. Police also say these immigrants, unable to get car insurance, are involved in more hit-and-run accidents.

White House preps fall immigration push

The White House is getting ready to launch a major fall blitz for immigration reform — this time, one that appears to be more about partisanship than partnership with Republicans.

While Washington may be consumed in the latest continuing resolution crisis and debt ceiling drama, it’s also just days away from massive new push on an issue many had written off months ago.
The White House and everyone who works here believes that immigration reform can and should get done in this Congress,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest. “In fact, as the president has said, immigration reform would pass with bipartisan support tomorrow, if only the speaker of the House brought it to the floor for a vote.”


The president’s top immigration adviser, Felicia Escobar, has told immigration advocates that the White House will turn to their issue after the battles on government funding and raising the nation’s debt limit, creating what senior administration officials say is a window of opportunity to make progress on the issue. That’s just in time to harmonize with a series of Oct. 5 events across the country organized under the heading of a day of “dignity and respect” and a Washington lobbying effort by an array of pro-reform activists at the end of the month.

Kenneth Lee "Ken" Salazar (/ˈsæləzɑr/; born March 2, 1955) served as the 50th United States Secretary of the Interior, in the administration of President Barack Obama from 2009-2013. A member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a United States Senator from Colorado from 2005 to 2009. He and Mel Martinez (R-Florida) were the first Hispanic U.S. Senators since 1977; they were joined by Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey) in January 2006. Prior to his election to the U.S. Senate, he served as Attorney General of Colorado from 1999 to 2005.

On December 17, 2008, President-elect Obama announced he would nominate Salazar as U.S. Secretary of the Interior. The environmentalist movement's reaction to this nomination was mixed.[1][2] Previously, Salazar supported the nomination of Gale Norton to Secretary of the Interior,[3] President George W. Bush's first appointee who preceded Salazar as Colorado Attorney General. On January 20, 2009, Salazar was confirmed by unanimous consent in the Senate.

On January 16, 2013, it was reported that Salazar planned to resign his post as Secretary of the Interior in March, 2013, but his resignation was delayed pending Senate confirmation of his successor, Sally Jewell. [4][5][6]

On June 10, 2013 he became a partner in the major international law firm of WilmerHale, and was charged with opening a Denver office for the firm.

Salazar has ancestors in the Southwestern United States dating back from the 16th century, when that region was part of New Spain.[9]

House Republicans Work Immigration Behind Scenes
WASHINGTON September 30, 2013 (AP)
By ERICA WERNER Associated Press
Associated Press

Immigration overhaul legislation has been dormant in the House for months, but a few Republicans are working behind the scenes to advance it at a time the Capitol is immersed in a partisan brawl over government spending and President Barack Obama's health care law.

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, has been discussing possible legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. He's also been working with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a fellow Virginia Republican, on a bill offering citizenship to immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children.

Reps. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, and Ted Poe, R-Texas, are working on a plan to create a visa program allowing more lower-skilled workers into the country.

Goodlatte and the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas, hold out hopes for floor action by late October on a series of immigration bills that already have passed their committees.
Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio [ Catylic ], and other members of the House Republican leadership also support a resolution to an issue that has become a political drag for their party.
McCaul's committee has approved a border security bill. Goodlatte's committee has signed off on legislation addressing a range of issues, including visas for high-skilled workers and enforcement of immigration laws.

But so far, there's been no House GOP bill taking on the trickiest policy issue for Republicans: what to do about those already here illegally.

Migrant 'dreamers' held after attempting to return to US
Immigration officials spent Monday night in Laredo interviewing 34 young people dressed in graduation caps and gowns


Thirty-four young migrants are in US custody after trying to enter the United States without documents in the latest round of what is becoming a new tactic in confronting what they consider unjust US immigration policies.

US immigration officials interviewed the group dressed in a colorful graduation caps and gowns late into the night Monday connecting Mexico to Laredo while chanting "Undocumented and unafraid!"

The young people all spent long stretches of their childhoods in US cities like Los Angeles and Phoenix and want to return.
At the heart of both groups' protest was a change to US immigration regulations made in June 2012 giving something called deferred action to immigrants who were brought to the country as children. Those who were in the US at that time and met a list of criteria could apply for a renewable two-year deferment and work authorization.

But the young people crossing Monday had left the US, either voluntarily or through deportation, months, weeks or even just days before the deferred action announcement, commonly known as Daca.
David Leopold, an immigration lawyer and past president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said the tactic concerned him.

"The focus now should be on getting the House of Representatives to do its job and fix the immigration system," Leopold said. "I don't know that these actions move that issue forward."
Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Process
FAQs updated January 18, 2013

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several key guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and would then be eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred action does not provide an individual with lawful status.


You may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals if you:  
1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;
3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;  
4. Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;
5. Entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012;
6. Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and
7. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

Deferred Action Granted To 455,000 Undocumented Dreamers
 Posted: 09/13/2013 4:25 pm EDT  |  Updated: 09/13/2013 6:01 pm EDT

WASHINGTON -- More than 455,000 young undocumented immigrants were granted the ability to live and work in the United States during the first 13 months of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to data released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security.

Congress has repeatedly failed in efforts to create a path to citizenship for undocumented young people who entered the country as children, often referred to as Dreamers. But President Barack Obama announced in June 2012 that these youths would be able to apply for the new program, known as DACA, to stay in the country for two years without fear of deportation.

The government began accepting applications on Aug. 15, 2012. The new data goes through Aug. 31, 2013, and shows that 588,725 people applied in that period and 455,455 were approved -- meaning about 77 percent of applicants were granted deferred action. Nearly 21,200 applications were rejected during the intake process, and about 9,600 were denied after case review.
Receiving deferred action status allows undocumented young people to obtain a driver's license and work, a huge help for those hoping to pay for college or help their families. The authorization only lasts two years and can be taken away if a recipient commits a crime or is otherwise deemed subject for removal, but it still has lessened the pressure of potential deportation for hundreds of thousands of young people.

UC student leaders meet with new system president Napolitano
By Larry Gordon
October 1, 2013, 7:15 p.m.

UC student leaders had their first meeting Tuesday with new UC system President Janet Napolitano and emerged saying they were “cautiously optimistic” that she would address their concerns, including those affecting students who were brought into the country illegally as children.
In July, some student activists had protested the selection of Napolitano as UC president because of the deportations enforced by her federal agency. However, on Tuesday she told them that she supports the so-called Trust Act, state legislation that would restrict local police from detaining immigrants without serious criminal records for possible deportation. Napolitano reportedly told them that she has urged Gov. Jerry Brown to sign the bill, which the Legislature passed.
Andrea Gordillo, a UC Irvine student activist who advocated for students who do not have legal immigration status, said she was “cautiously optimistic” about future relations with the president.

Janet Napolitano was born on November 29, 1957, in New York City, the daughter of Jane Marie (née Winer) and Leonard Michael Napolitano, who was the dean of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine
She graduated from Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California, where she won a Truman Scholarship, and was valedictorian. In 1978, she studied for a term at the London School of Economics as part of Santa Clara's exchange programme through IES Abroad. She then received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Virginia School of Law

In July 2009 the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley (JST), formerly an independent institution, legally merged with the university, taking the name "Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University."  Although a division of SCU, it retains its campus in Berkeley, California. JST is one of two Jesuit seminaries in the United States with ecclesiastical faculties approved by the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education. The other, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, completed a similar affiliation with Boston College in June 2008, becoming Boston College School of Theology and Ministry.[8]

Gov. Brown signs 'Trust Act' prohibiting detaining undocumented for deportation in minor arrests
 KPCC Staff with Associated Press | October 5th, 2013, 11:16am

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill into California law that prohibits the LAPD and other local law enforcement agencies from detaining people for deportation if they are arrested for a minor crime and otherwise eligible to be released from custody.

AB4 by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, was one of eight immigration-related measures Brown signed on Saturday. The governor also approved a bill allowing lawyers to be admitted to the California bar even if they're living in the U.S. illegally.

“While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead," Brown said in a statement. “I’m not waiting.”

•AB 524 by Assemblymember Kevin Mullin (D-South San Francisco) – Provides that a threat to report the immigration status or suspected immigration status of an individual or the individual's family may induce fear sufficient to constitute extortion.
•AB 1024 by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) – Allows applicants, who are not lawfully present in the United States, to be admitted as an attorney at law.
•AB 1159 by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) – Imposes various restrictions and obligations on persons who offer services related to comprehensive immigration reform.
•SB 141 by Senator Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) – Requires that the California Community Colleges and the California State University, and requests that the University of California, exempt a United States citizen who resides in a foreign country, and is in their first year as a matriculated student, from nonresident tuition if the student demonstrates financial need, has a parent or guardian who was deported or voluntarily departed from the U.

About 2,000 march in Hollywood immigration rally
 E.J. Tamara | AP | October 5th, 2013, 3:48pm


Update 3:45 p.m.: About 2,000 supporters of immigration reform marched through Hollywood on Saturday as part of rallies nationwide to push for congressional action, while California's governor signed a series of bills on the topic, saying he was not going to wait on Washington.

The Los Angeles demonstration called "March of the Stars" kicked off shortly after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that included a bill prohibiting local law enforcement agencies from detaining people for deportation if they are arrested for a minor crime and otherwise eligible to be released from custody.
The mobilization is a prelude to a rally and free concert Tuesday on the National Mall in Washington.

Immigration has been a rare area of bipartisan cooperation. Confidence was boosted earlier in the year on a sweeping overhaul of the system and a path to citizenship for millions, but the crisis over Syria, and now the partial shutdown of the federal government, has diverted lawmakers' attention.

The chances an immigration bill makes its way through Congress before the year ends are slim. But advocates want to make sure reform stays front and center despite lawmakers' pressing concerns.

Signing Trust Act is another illegal-immigration milestone for Brown
By Patrick McGreevy
October 5, 2013, 7:36 p.m.

SACRAMENTO — On a day when immigrant-rights activists nationwide rallied for action from Washington, Gov. Jerry Brown put California at the vanguard of change, signing sweeping laws aimed at speeding the assimilation of those in the country illegally.

Brown signed eight bills Saturday, including one prohibiting local law enforcement officials from detaining immigrants longer than necessary for minor crimes so that federal immigration authorities can take custody of them.

Under the so-called Trust Act, immigrants in this country illegally would have to be charged with or convicted of a serious offense to be eligible for a 48-hour hold and transfer to U.S. immigration authorities for possible deportation.

The measure is the second milestone immigration bill signed by the governor in three days. On Thursday, he approved a measure allowing immigrants in the country illegally to receive California driver's licenses.

Mainstream baffled as French turn to far right

AFP - France's mainstream political parties were Monday scratching their heads over what to do about a surge by the Front National (FN) after a breakthrough by-election win for the far-right party.

The pledges to end net immigration, most controversially by ripping up family reunion rules, and to begin moves to pull France out of the European Union, remain in place.

But the FN is now far from being a one-issue party, notably making its voice heard on education to the extent that it has recently been able to announce the creation of a network of supporters amongst teachers - an unthinkable development a decade ago.

Marine Le Pen, has worked hard to dispel the image of the party as fundamentally racist.

She has expelled activists who make bigoted public statements and the FN lists in next year's municipal elections will include a handful of ethnic minority candidates.

Obama to push immigration reform 'day after' budget deal
By Justin Sink -

President Obama vowed Tuesday that he would pursue an immigration reform vote in the House the "day after" Congress reached an agreement to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.

"Once that’s done, you know, the day after -- I’m going to be pushing to say, call a vote on immigration reform," Obama told Univision's Los Angeles affiliate. "And if I have to join with other advocates and continue to speak out on that, and keep pushing, I’m going to do so because I think it’s really important for the country. And now is the time to do it."The president reiterated his claim that the only thing holding back passage of the Senate's immigration bill is "Speaker Boehner not willing to call the bill on the floor of the House of Representatives."

Earlier this month, House Democrats introduced their own version of an immigration bill in an attempt to spur Republican action after it appeared that momentum had stalled for immigration reform. The bill largely mirrors the Senate effort, while stripping out some border security provisions added to win Senate GOP votes.

Obama: Get immigration bill done this year
David Jackson, USA TODAY 11:43 a.m. EDT October 24, 2013

With the partial government shutdown in the past, President Obama renewed his call Thursday for an immigration bill.

"It's good for our economy, it's good for our national security," Obama said in remarks at the White House. "It's good for our people, and we should do it this year."

As Obama noted, a bipartisan coalition in the Senate approved an immigration law earlier this year
Another organization -- the National Day Laborer Organizing Network -- said Obama can set an example by cutting back on his record numbers of deportations.

"President Obama can advance immigration reform by using his existing legal authority to alleviate the suffering of immigrants," said Pablo Alvarado, the organization's executive director.

Saudis round up thousands of illegal immigrants
Reuters – 4 hours ago.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi authorities rounded up thousands of illegal foreign workers at the start of a nationwide crackdown ultimately aimed at creating more jobs for locals, media reported on Tuesday.

Hundreds of thousands of workers have already left the kingdom following a grace period of seven months during which authorities told expatriates that if they did not fix their legal status they had to leave the country or face jail.

The government hopes that reducing the number of illegal workers will create opportunities for Saudi job-seekers. The official Saudi unemployment rate is 12 percent but excludes a large number of citizens who say they are not seeking a job.

However, the majority of the kingdom's nine million foreigners are unskilled laborers or domestic workers, jobs usually shunned by Saudis.
Bouq told the paper that at least 1,899 illegal workers had been arrested in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah. The paper also said police had arrested at least 2,200 people in the southwestern city of Samta, 379 in the Eastern Province and hundreds of others in other cities.

In Jeddah, dozens of Indonesian workers, mostly women, staged a sit-in to pressure the authorities to hasten their deportation, according to Arab News newspaper. Many workers cannot leave the country because they lack official papers, including passports, the paper said.

The remittances sent home by expatriates in Saudi Arabia are often vital for their own nations, which include Yemen, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Pakistan and Egypt.
Obama's day: Immigration and wounded troops

After weeks in which the White House has largely centered its efforts on dealing with the fiscal crisis and the troubled rollout of the federal government's online health care exchange, President Obama turns his attention to immigration on Tuesday.

In the morning, Obama and Vice President Biden will meet with business leaders to talk about the impact overhauling immigration laws will have on the U.S. economy.

The leaders slated to attend include: Roger Altman, founder and chairman of Evercore Partners; Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solution; Joe Echevarria, CEO of Deloitte; Marillyn Hewson, CEO and president of Lockheed Martin; Edward Rust, chairman and CEO of State Farm; Arne Sorenson, president and CEO of Marriott; Stephen Schwarzman, chairman and CEO of Blackstone; and Don Thompson, president and CEO of McDonalds.

Later in the day, Obama heads to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland to visit with wounded U.S. troops.

Obama will also visit the Fisher House, a program that supports military families by housing them while their loved one receive medical care.

Obama: Get immigration bill done this year
David Jackson, USA TODAY 11:43 a.m. EDT October 24, 2013

With the partial government shutdown in the past, President Obama renewed his call Thursday for an immigration bill.

"It's good BAD for our economy, it's good  BAD for our national security," Obama said in remarks at the White House. "It's good BAD for our people, and we should NOT do it this year."

As Obama noted, a bipartisan coalition in the Senate approved an immigration law earlier this year
Another organization -- the National Day Laborer Organizing Network -- said Obama can set an example by cutting back on INCREASING his record numbers of deportations.

"President Obama can advance immigration reform by NOTusing his existing legal authority to alleviate the suffering of immigrants AMERICANS," said Pablo Alvarado, the organization's executive director.

Obama to renew call for immigration reform
Posted byCNN Political Unit   
Updated 8:11 p.m. ET, 10/23/2013

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama plans to urge Congress on Thursday to take back up comprehensive immigration reform.

The White House says that Obama will make the announcement on Thursday (at 10:35 a.m.) The statement will be delivered in the White House East Room.

  Remember when Obama talks, the truth is the exact opposite of what he is saying.  The truth is in red.

Obama says [La Raza - (NCLR)] CEO [Funder]'s want quick immigration reform as he pushes Congress to act

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says U.S. businesses are looking for quick passage of immigration reform as he pushes Congress to act by the end of the year.

Obama met with CEOs at the White House Tuesday to pressure the Republican-controlled House to pass legislation overhauling the nation’s immigration system.

Obama said some “unlikely bedfellows” are supporting immigration reform from the liberal and conservative side. The U.S. Chamber is sending 50 small business owners to meet with lawmakers Tuesday, while the AFL-CIO planned Wednesday to announce new political actions to push for passage.

The Senate has already passed Obama-backed legislation that would secure borders and provide a road to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who entered the country illegallly.

[ Now related to this is Trumka AFL-CIO Prez of the TSA is a pal of BO:  ]

Is the fix in? Trumka reportedly all smiles after White House labor union meeting about Obamacare; Updated

Labor leaders have been experiencing “what have we done” moments as the realization of the impact of Obamacare hits home. In July, the heads of three major U.S. labor unions wrote a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid expressing their concern that Obamacare “will destroy the very health and wellbeing of our members.”

In order to seek a “fix,” the White House hosted a meeting of labor leaders today:

The political paybacks, and assault on our economy and National Security never stops with this president. Just another reason to never fly again. No thanks, I’ll drive.

President Obama and Richard L. Trumka, AFL-CIO President

WASHINGTON (The Blaze/AP) — Airport screeners around the county have chosen the nation’s largest federal employee union to represent them in collective bargaining talks with the government.

The American Federation of Government Employees won a runoff vote to represent 44,000 workers at the Transportation Security Administration.

Not one person should be forced in a union, especially those who work for the government. For God’s sake look at the public schools, and the highly partisan crowd they produce. Next on Obama’s list is to legalize then unionize 12-20 million ILLEGAL immigrants.

Can you imagine the sweetheart deal (at our expense) these guys are in for?
The AFL-CIO’s boss Richard Trumka is one of the most frequent visitors to the White House.

Obama, McCain to huddle on immigration
By Alexander Bolton - 11/07/13 01:30 PM EST

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will meet with President Obama at the White House Thursday afternoon to plot strategy for passing comprehensive immigration reform.

McCain said Obama requested the meeting, which comes at a time political momentum for immigration reform is flagging.
“I’m going over to the White House this afternoon to meet with him [on] immigration reform and others,” he said. “I actually have a respectful and cordial relationship with him.”

McCain and Obama need to shore up the support of wavering allies such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has backed off the push to overhaul the nation's immigration laws in a 1,200-page comprehensive bill.
[Tea Time!]  

A White House official confirmed the president's meeting with McCain would occur at 3:30 p.m.

“I’m disappointed that the immigration issue is going to go into an election year,” said Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.).

Rep. Gutierrez: Congress Must Stay for Thanksgiving, Christmas to Pass Amnesty

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), one of the most prominent supporters of comprehensive immigration reform in the House of Representatives, wants lawmakers in Congress to stay through Thanksgiving and Christmas to create a pathway to citizenship for all of the country's illegal immigrants.

"I think it's unconscionable that the Congress of the United States is going to go away for Thanksgiving with their families, we're going to go away for Christmas with our families, while our broken immigration system continues to destroy tens of thousands of families,” he said on Fusion.

Gutierrez made his comments as reports are coming out that Congress may be done legislating for the calendar year.


Amensty Dead--FOR NOW (main headline at Drudge
  Good news---for now.  The Republicans know that Obama cooked his own goose (by lying and lying to the people).  The Republicans should not deal with immigration until after the 2014 elections when the Republicans get more votes.  OBAMA IS A DEER IN HEADLIGHTS---FINALLY.  CAN ANYONE SAY LAME DUCK?

Boehner: House won’t negotiate with Senate on immigration bill

Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday that House Republicans will not enter into negotiations with the Senate on a massive immigration bill, effectively killing chances this year for a broad deal that would legalize illegal immigrants and rewrite the legal immigration system.

Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, said the House will operate on its own timetable and won’t be rushed by President Obama’s suggested year-end deadline or the looming 2014 elections — though he said he does still want to take some action on immigration.

“We’ve made it clear that we’re going to move on a common sense, step-by-step approach in terms of how we deal with immigration,” Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, told reporters Wednesday. “The idea that we’re going to take up a 1,300-page bill that no one had ever read, which is what the Senate did, is not going to happen in the House. And frankly, I’ll make clear we have no intention of ever going to conference on the Senate bill.”

Obama courting [LaRaza NCLR supporting] CEOs on immigration widens conservative split, raises issue of corporate motives
Published November 10, 2013
President Obama's courting of top U.S. executives this week to help get the Republican-controlled House to pass immigration reform is furthering the divide among conservatives, with a top GOP senator and others suggesting corporate America is lending its support with hopes of getting more access to low-cost immigrant labor.

The president said before the White House meeting Tuesday that he and others who support comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate know the “politics are challenging” in the House and that they “want to make it as easy as possible” for Speaker John Boehner to get enough votes for passage.

However, that McDonald's Don Thompson and Marriott’s Arne Sorenson, whose companies depend on low-skilled inexpensive labor, were among those at the meeting has raised questions from some conservatives, especially at a time when millions of Americans remain out of work.

“Many of the same corporations demanding more immigrant workers are laying off American workers,” Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, told “House Republicans should tell the White House simply: We work for the American people, not this group of CEOs.”
Obama: Don't let ACA problems stop immigration
By REID J. EPSTEIN | 11/13/13 7:04 PM EST

President Barack Obama gave immigration reform advocates a simple message Wednesday: Don’t let Obamacare get you down.

In an Oval Office meeting with eight Christian faith leaders, the president said he remains engaged on immigration legislation and hopes the reform effort can get a fair hearing despite his other political problems, several faith leaders told POLITICO.
“He said he doesn’t want other debates that are going on to hurt this,” said Jim Wallis, the president and CEO of the Christian social justice agency Sojourners. “He doesn’t want all the other debates going on to prevent this from passing. It’s caught up in all the other debates and he wants this to be looked at on his own merits.”

Obama’s exhortation came during a meeting just hours before his administration released the first batch of Affordable Care Act enrollment numbers – a figure the White House had for weeks telegraphed as far lower than expected.

Much of Obama’s Oval Office conversation with the faith leaders, Biden and top aides Valerie Jarrett, Cecilia Munoz and Melissa Rogers centered around the idea that contemporary Washington politics is blocking reform efforts, the faith leaders said.

Obama, they said, didn’t make a direct ask for them to press Congress to back the reform effort, as Vice President Joe Biden implored Catholic leaders to do during a call Tuesday night. Instead he asked for their input on how the current immigration system is harming their communities and echoed the urgency to pass reform legislation by the end of the year.

Obama rallies faith leaders on immigration
By Justin Sink  - 11/13/13 01:21 PM EST

President Obama on Wednesday rallied faith leaders to pressure Republicans to pursue comprehensive immigration reform during a morning meeting at the White House


The meeting comes on the heels of a similar gathering last week with business executives, as the White House looks to regain momentum on a reform effort that has largely stalled in the House.
In addition to the president, Vice President Biden, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Muñoz and director of faith-based partnerships Melissa Rogers attended the meeting.

"The President and the leaders discussed their shared commitment to raise the moral imperative for immigration reform and said they will continue keeping the pressure on Congress so they can swiftly pass commonsense reform," the White House said in a statement.

According to the White House, Obama told the leaders there was "no reason for House Republicans to continue to delay action on this issue that has garnered bipartisan support."
Cecilia Muñoz (born July 27, 1962) is director of the White House Domestic Policy Council. Prior to that, she served as the White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. A longtime civil rights advocate, she worked as Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), ...

Melissa Rogers serves as director of Wake Forest University Divinity School's Center for Religion and Public Affairs. She was a nonresident senior fellow at Brookings until March 2013.  While at Brookings, her research focused on religion’s intersection with policy, law, and politics, including religious expression in American public life and the social service partnerships the government forms with religious and secular organizations

Valerie Bowman Jarrett (born November 14, 1956) is a Senior Advisor to the President of the United States and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the Obama administration. She is a Chicago lawyer, businesswoman, and civic leader. Prior to that she served as a co-chairperson of the Obama-Biden Transition Project

Jarrett continued to work in the mayor's office in the 1990s. She was Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daley, during which time (1991) she hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama, away from a private law firm. Jarrett served as Commissioner of the Department of Planning and Development from 1992 through 1995, and was Chair of the Chicago Transit Board
from 1995 to 2005

Until joining the Obama Administration, Jarrett was the CEO of The Habitat Company, a real estate development and management company[11] which she joined in 1995. She has been replaced by Mark Segal, a lawyer who joined the company in 2002, as CEO. Daniel E. Levin is the Chairman of Habitat, which was formed in 1971.[12] Jarrett was a member of the board of Chicago Stock Exchange (2000–2007, as Chairman, 2004–2007).

She was a member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Chicago Medical Center from 1996 to 2009, becoming Vice-Chair in 2002 and Chair in 2006.[13] She also served as Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Chicago and a Trustee of Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry.[14] Jarrett serves on the board of directors of USG Corporation, a Chicago based building materials corporation.

Jarrett's previous year's income, in a 2009 report, was a $300,000 salary and $550,000 in deferred compensation from The Habitat Executive Services, Inc. The Wall Street Journal also reported she disclosed payments of more than $346,000 for service on boards of directors that reflect her political ties, and work in Chicago real estate and community development. She was paid $76,000 for service as a director of Navigant Consulting, Inc. a Chicago-based global consulting group with governmental clients. She received $146,600 from USG, and $58,000 to serve on the board of Rreef American REIT II, a real estate investment trust based in San Francisco.

Illegal immigrants blockade Atlanta office to halt deportations

Illegal immigrants blockaded a federal office that handles deportations in Atlanta on Tuesday morning, and later in the day others in Chicago chained themselves to the wheels of a bus they said was headed to the airport on a deportation run.

The moves were designed to call attention to President Obama’s deportation policies, which the immigrant-rights activists say have gone too far. They want the president to use executive authority to stop almost all deportations.

Mission Statement

Embracing the Gospel value of welcoming the stranger, CLINIC promotes the dignity and protects the rights of immigrants in partnership with a dedicated network of Catholic and community legal immigration programs.


In 1988, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) established CLINIC as a legally distinct 501(c)(3) organization to support a rapidly growing network of community-based immigration programs. CLINIC's network originally comprised 17 programs. It has since increased to more than 250 diocesan and other affiliated immigration programs with 300 field offices in 46 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.  The network employs roughly 1,200 BIA accredited representatives and attorneys who, in turn, serve hundreds of thousands of low-income immigrants each year.  CLINIC and its affiliate agencies represent low-income immigrants without reference to their race, religion, gender, ethnic group, or other distinguishing characteristics.


•Since 1997, CLINIC’s programs have helped more than 100,000 people apply for citizenship; helped approximately 12,000 refugees and asylees apply for green cards; and have provided immigrants with over 15,000 hours of English language instruction.
•CLINIC represents more than 170 dioceses and religious communities that bring foreign-born priests, sisters, seminarians and religious laypersons to the United States each year.
•CLINIC trained more than 7,000 immigration practitioners in 2012.
•CLINIC’s Attorney-of-the-Day Help Line fields at least 20 calls per day from member agencies on the most effective strategy for representing clients. CLINIC’s attorneys staff the hotline which covers topics such as family-based immigration, naturalization, temporary employment authorization, and relief from removal.
•CLINIC’s pro bono attorneys have filed briefs and represented more than 500 immigrants before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).

It's the Pope's Burden ...

Statistics on religion in Burkina Faso are inexact because Islam and Christianity are often practiced in tandem with indigenous religious beliefs. The Government of Burkina Faso stated in its most recent census (2006) that 60.5% of the population practice Islam, and that the majority of this group belong to the Sunni branch ]

Italy's citizenship laws have long been criticised as outdated and unfair by those who compare them unfavourably with other western countries, including Britain, the US and France, where immigration has a longer and more established history.

Now, in the absence of consensus in Italy's deeply divided national parliament, an increasing number of towns and cities are taking it upon themselves to act – albeit symbolically. According to Unicef, which has co-ordinated a nationwide scheme, more than 200 councils have granted honorary citizenship to the children of foreigners born in Italy. The latest – and arguably most striking – of these is Treviso.

In the meantime, communities all over the country will continue to award honorary citizenship in a spirit of solidarity with their neighbours and frustration with rules that refuse to acknowledge modern Italy's multi-ethnic social fabric. In Treviso, Xiao Jin Xiang, the Chinese father of two Italian-born children, Qian and Chen, says the gesture will help to make his family "feel more a part of society", even if it isn't the true legal change that would simplify his children's life.

Nombo, meanwhile, is optimistic. "This is a big step ahead," he says. "A year ago nothing like this was being discussed. Things are changing. Soon, we hope, it will be real citizenship."

Just as Stalin used "forced" migrations to control the USSR - the modern globalist dictators use Global migration to bust nation states by crossing borders...

Everyone stand up and cheer for International Migrants Day - Dec 18!!!!
International Migrants Day
18 December

On 4 December 2000, the UN General Assembly, taking into account the large and increasing number of migrants in the world, proclaimed 18 December as International Migrants Day. On 18 December 1990, the General Assembly had adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.

UN Member States and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations are invited to observe International Migrants Day through the dissemination of information on the human rights and fundamental freedoms of migrants, and through the sharing of experiences and the design of actions to ensure their protection.

International migration has been a central element in enriching many cultures and civilisations throughout human history, supporting the process of global economic growth and contributing to the evolution of states and societies. In the contemporary world it is a key issue in global integration and international relations due to its rapidly increasing economic, social and cultural impact in both the origin and destination countries.

Human Development Report challenges common migration misconceptions(

740 million people are internal migrants, almost four times the number of international migrants. Among international migrants, less than 30 percent move from developing to developed countries. For example, only three percent of Africans live outside their country of birth.

Taking down barriers

Overcoming barriers lays out a core package of reforms, six 'pillars' that call for:

• Opening existing entry channels for more workers, especially those with low skills;
• Ensuring basic human rights for migrants, from basic services, like education and health care, to the right to vote;
• Lowering the transaction costs of migration;
• Finding collaborative solutions that benefit both destination communities and migrants;
• Easing internal migration; and
• Adding migration as a component for origin countries' development strategies.

In terms of international migration, the Report does not advocate wholesale liberalization, since people at destination places have a right to shape their societies; but it argues that there is a strong case for increased access for sectors with a high demand for labour, including for the low-skilled. This is particularly important for developed countries because their populations are ageing—and this may increase the demand for migrant workers.

Central America migrants flee turf wars and corrupt states for refuge in Mexico
Activists say Mexican authorities faced with most dramatic rise in refugees since 1980s era of rightwing dictatorships

The Guardian, Monday 30 December 2013

Extreme violence in Central America is sending a surge of refugees fleeing north to Mexico where they are caught between official indifference and yet more danger if they continue to the United States, human rights activists say.

Activists in Tapachula describe a dramatic increase in the number of women and children arriving in southern Mexico this year. Though precise numbers are hard to come by, it seems clear that Mexico has not witnessed such a refugee flow since the 1980s when the region was beset by a series of vicious civil wars involving rightwing dictatorships and leftwing guerrillas.

"There is an undeclared civil war in Central America," said Father Flor Maria Rigoni, who runs a migrant shelter in Tapachula, near the border with Guatemala. "The refugees are coming, but the Mexican institutions aren't taking the problem seriously."

The violence behind today's exodus stems from turf wars between street gangs such as the M-18 and Mara Salvatrucha, the growing power of drug cartels and woefully weak and corrupt state institutions across the region.

Many of the refugees tell stories like that of Mirta, a 24-year-old Honduran woman travelling with her two small sons. After years living in New York, Mirta was so desperate to spend time with her mother she moved her family back to Honduras, even though it had become the most violent state outside a war zone.

The country's murder rate currently hovers around 90 per 100,000 people, compared to one in 100,000 in the UK and five in 100,000 in the US.

The pressure began when masked and armed men she described as "little local narcos" forced her husband to sign over his car and demanded her children's US passports. It became unbearable when they narrowly escaped a kidnapping attempt.
Migration through Mexico peaked in 2005 when the authorities deported around 240,000 Central Americans. Since then a sluggish US economy and tighter controls on the US border have reduced the attractions of going north, as has the knowledge that Mexican drug cartels prey on migrants en route. Reports of kidnapping, rape, murder and forced recruitment are common.

Even so, the Mexican authorities still detained more than 88,000 Central American migrants last year during a journey that has become the preserve of the particularly determined and the desperate.

California grants law license to immigrant
January 2, 2014 4:37 PM

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The California Supreme Court granted a law license Thursday to a man who has been living in the U.S. illegally for two decades, a ruling that advocates hope will open the door to immigrants seeking to enter other professions such as medicine, nursing and accounting.

The unanimous decision means Sergio Garcia, who attended law school and passed the state bar exam while working in a grocery store and on farms, can begin practicing law immediately.

 This Guy Might Not Get Admitted To The Bar Over Something He Did When He Was 17 Months Old  
By Joe Patrice   

Sergio Garcia (not the racist golfer) has lived in California most of his life. He worked his way through law school and then took and passed the California bar exam on the first try.

Yesterday, the California Supreme Court heard argument on whether Garcia could be admitted to practice law.

Sergio Garcia was brought to the United States when he was 17 months old. The California justices must decide whether an undocumented immigrant can be admitted. The State of California says yes. The Obama Administration says no.

The news coverage of the case implies that California has the equities on its side while the Obama Administration has the law.

Garcia arrived in the U.S. illegally 20 years ago to pick almonds with his father and worked at a grocery store and in the fields while attending school.
Garcia, 36, worked in the fields and at a grocery store before attending community college. He became a paralegal, went to law school and passed the bar on his first try. He applied for citizenship in 1994, and is still working toward that goal.

No moral turpitude involved.

And with respect to how an undocumented immigrant having broken federal immigration law by his unauthorized presence in the U.S. can nonetheless be sworn to uphold the law — the Court said that since unlawful unauthorized presence “does not itself involve moral turpitude or demonstrate moral unfitness,” it does not “justify exclusion from the State Bar, or prevent the individual from taking an oath promising faithfully to discharge the duty to support the Constitution and laws of the United States and California.”

The Court further said that “existing federal limitations on the employment of undocumented immigrants do not justify excluding undocumented immigrants from admission to the State Bar.”

There’s scarcely any doubt that the California high court’s precedential decision today will also help other undocumented law graduates like Cesar Vargas and Jose Godinez-Samperio in other states. As I posted in May 2012, while California decisions are not dispositive in other jurisdictions, state courts do tend to pay attention to what California does. So thanks to the California Supreme Court’s decision, Sergio Garcia’s case has again taken on a much more momentous dimension.

( – Speaking at the United States Conference of Mayors on Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the approximately 11 million people who are in the country illegally have “earned the right to be citizens.”

“An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows,” said Johnson, in what he remarked was one of his first public speeches since being confirmed as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief in December

Johnson, who had earlier served as general counsel for the Department of Defense under Obama from 2009 to 2012, told the more than 270 mayors in attendance that enforcing immigration law was one of the main missions of DHS.

Immigration officials warn of amnesty ‘overload’

The officers who would be charged with approving millions of applications from illegal immigrants for legal status warned Congress this week that they can’t handle the workload, and said the change would guarantee criminals and others would be approved to remain in the country.

In a letter to House Republicans, who are planning to announce principles Thursday that would include legal status for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S., the labor union that represents U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers and adjudicators predicted it would be a disaster.

“There is no quality here, only quantity,” said Kenneth Palinkas, president of the National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council. “USCIS is not equipped to handle this workload, and due to political interference in its mission, is not empowered to deny admission to all those who should be denied due to ineligibility. We have become a visa clearinghouse for the world, rather than the first line of defense for a secure immigration system.”

Renegotiating NAFTA on hold, Obama says
Michael D. Shear, Washington Post
Published 4:00 am, Friday, February 20, 2009

The president's message served as a reminder of last year's private assessment by Canadian officials that then-candidate Obama's frequent criticisms of NAFTA were nothing more than campaign speeches aimed at chasing support among Rust Belt union workers.

"Much of the rhetoric that may be perceived to be protectionist is more reflective of political maneuvering than policy," the Canadians concluded in a memo after meeting with Austan Goolsbee, a senior campaign aide and now a member of Obama's Council of Economic Advisers.

When the memo became public, Obama advisers rejected the idea as absurd and insisted that he was serious about changing NAFTA. Obama even suggested that the United States might opt out of NAFTA if the standards couldn't be improved to America's satisfaction.

But some longtime observers of the U.S.-Canada relationship said Obama's current position appears to confirm the impression that Canadian officials got from the meeting with Goolsbee.
The president instead focused on the idea of developing carbon capture and storage to help turn the sands into a clean source of power, a largely unproven and not yet cost-effective technology that would bury harmful emissions underground.

U.S. lawmakers launch push to repeal NAFTA
By Doug Palmer

WASHINGTON Thu Mar 4, 2010 4:35pm EST

Reuters) - A small group of U.S. lawmakers unveiled legislation on Thursday to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement in the latest sign of congressional disillusionment with free-trade deals.

The bill spearheaded by Rep. Gene Taylor, a Mississippi Democrat, would require President Barack Obama to give Mexico and Canada six months notice that the United States will no longer be part of the 16-year-old trade pact.

"At a time when 10 to 12 percent of the American people are unemployed, I think Congress has an obligation to put people back to work," Taylor said.

He argued NAFTA has cost the United States millions of manufacturing jobs and hurt national security by encouraging companies to move production to Mexico.

The high unemployment rate makes it the "perfect" time to push for repeal even though past efforts have failed, he said.

"You'll see the American people rally behind this, in my humble opinion," said Rep. Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican who is one of about 28 co-sponsors of the bill.

Business groups like the National Association of Manufacturers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly support NAFTA, which they say has spurred U.S. economic growth by tearing down trade barriers between the three countries.
The House of Representatives is expected to vote later this year on whether the United States should remain a member of the World Trade Organization.

U.S. law allows House and Senate members to request a vote on that issue every five years. In 2005, 86 of the House's 435 members voted to withdraw from the world trade body
Congress shocker. Democrats buck Obama, introduce bill to repeal NAFTA!

A group of 28 diverse House members, ranging from conservatives, to moderates, to leftists, are sponsoring a bill to repeal NAFTA. Opposing NAFTA was one of the first major issues of the CofCC, and an issue in the CofCC statement of principles. As recently as 2008, conservatives were still being ridiculed by the left-wing media for calling for the repeal of NAFTA.

It’s encouraging to see left-wing Democrats co-opting one of our issues!

NAFTA is the free trade agreement that has devastated American jobs. It was pushed by left-wing Democrats and Neo-Conservative Republicans. It was pushed through congress by Bill Clinton.

The introduction of the bill comes at a time when Obama’s own Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is campaigning for expanding NAFTA (which would violate Obama’s own campaign promise not to do so).

Illegal Aliens receive BILLIONS in fraudulent IRS Tax Refunds
Published on Apr 2, 2013  

Owner and originator of this video is WTHR-TV Channel 13 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Originally aired in April of 2012, this video should make your blood boil. Illegal aliens and the IRS are two hot-button issues. Here, they combine in the most offensive way you can possibly imagine. Illegal aliens are collecting BILLIONS of dollars in FRAUDULENT Tax Returns by exploiting the "Additional Child Tax Credit," which pays these illegal invaders up to $1,000 per child for their kids, many of whom have never even set foot in the US! Are you angry yet? Many of the filers list 10, 11, even a dozen children, and the IRS sends them YOUR MONEY, tens of thousands of dollars, to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars EVERY YEAR. Advocates for illlegal aliens love to say that they "contribute to our economy" and are a "net gain" for us. Ummm, no, I don't think so. They are a HUGE LOSS and enormous burden to our society and our wallets. One thing is true, though. When the bleeding-hearts tell us these people are coming here "for a better life," I guarantee that's true!

Raise the Minimum Wage to $14 An Hour Using This One Easy Trick
Ann Coulter | Feb 26, 2014

Democrats believe they've hit on the perfect issue to distract from the horror of Obamacare in the 2014 elections: the minimum wage.

Of course, the reason American workers’ wages are so low in the first place is because of the Democrats' policies on immigration. Republicans might want to point that out.

Since the late 1960s, the Democrats have been dumping about a million low-skilled immigrants on the country every year, driving down wages, especially at the lower end of the spectrum.

According to Harvard economist George Borjas, our immigration policies have reduced American wages by $402 billion a year -- while increasing profits for employers by $437 billion a year. (That's minus what they have to pay to the government in taxes to support their out-of-work former employees. Of course, we're all forced to share that tax burden.)

Or, as the White House puts it on its website promoting an increase in the minimum wage, "Today, the real value of the minimum wage has fallen by nearly one-third since its peak in 1968."

Why were wages so high until 1968? Because that's when Teddy Kennedy's 1965 Immigration Act kicked in, bringing in about a million immigrants a year, almost 90 percent of them unskilled workers from the Third World.
Do Republicans have any principles at all? Why isn't the GOP demanding an end to this dump of unskilled workers/Democratic voters on the country?
Instead of training the citizenry to look at the government as our paternal benefactor, distributing minimum wage laws and unemployment benefits in important election years, why don't Republicans put an end to the artificial glut of low-wage, low-skilled workers being imposed on the country by our immigration laws?

Republicans could guarantee a $14 minimum wage simply by closing the pipeline of more than 1 million poor immigrants coming in every year.

Businessmen will gripe, but maybe the GOP could explain to their Chamber of Commerce friends that they will help them by slashing oppressive regulations, reining in government bureaucracies, passing tort reform, etc. They'll also be able to cut taxes because the welfare state will shrink, a result of Americans going back to work.

But if the plutocrats insist on admitting another 30 million Democratic voters in order to get ever-cheaper labor, then, soon, Republicans won't be in a position to help them at all.

Border Patrol Agent Assoc. Claims Far More than 11 Million Illegal Aliens in America
by Matthew Boyle  9 Sep 2013
“The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO) believes the current estimate of up to 11 million aliens now residing illegally in the U.S. is a gross underestimate,” the organization wrote. “The more likely figure is 18 – 20 million and rising daily.”
"Of more serious concern, twenty seven years after the first amnesty was granted, Congress continues to refuse to demand aggressive enforcement of existing Immigration laws while passing more to mollify America," they continued. "The promise to the American public in 1986 was a lie.”
Repeating amnesty using these erroneous calculations again in 2013 presents the real prospect that the United States will immediately be burdened with 30 – 33 million new residents of unknown origin or criminal background,” NAFBPO writes. “That number will then be followed during the next ten years as at least an additional 33,056,946 new immigrants are added to America’s population as a result of passage of S.744.”
Nearly 20 million illegal immigrants in U.S., former Border Patrol agents say
By Stephen Dinan
The Washington Times
Monday, September 9, 2013

The number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. is actually closer to 20 million, according to former Border Patrol agents who issued a letter this weekend disputing the count of 11 million that the government and most top private demographers use.

“The more likely figure is 18-20 million and rising daily,” Zack Taylor, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, Inc., said in an open letter dated Sunday.

NAFBPO opposes the Senate bill that would grant legal status to illegal immigrants, with the organization arguing that current immigration laws aren’t broken and should be enforced.
ICE Reverts to Law Enforcement to Boost Deportation Numbers in 2012
By Jessica Vaughan,  February 26, 2013

In a surprising and refreshing reversal, last year ICE leadership, when confronted with data showing a decline in criminal alien deportations in the wake of the Obama administration's "prosecutorial discretion" policies, decided to allow ICE agents in the field to use conventional, tried-and-true law enforcement techniques to identify and remove more illegal alien criminals, according to memos obtained and released by USA Today — to a point.

The article and memos describe ICE headquarters personnel as panicked and obsessed with finding ways to boost deportation numbers in the spring of 2012, after agency analysts monitoring the numbers warned of significant decreases in ICE arrests following the much-maligned policy changes. According to ICE senior manager David Venturella, aides to ICE Director John Morton met daily to discuss the problem and "seemed to think their careers depended on that number [criminal alien deportations] going up."

It has been established that ICE has cooked the books to enable it to boast of "record" deportations, inflating its numbers by counting certain people arrested by the Border Patrol, and adding in people who were granted "voluntary return", an alternative form of expulsion used mainly in the border areas. See these reports at and Politico for more information. So one might reasonably have expected more attempts at smoke and mirrors rather than actual enforcement, when the numbers dipped again.
Obama deportation numbers a 'trick'
By REP. LAMAR SMITH | 10/25/11 9:26 PM EST

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano last week announced that the Obama administration has deported a record number of illegal immigrants in the past year.

But the Obama administration is using smoke and mirrors to achieve its so-called historic record. Take away the illusion, and the facts show that the administration conjures up its deportation statistics.

The administration appears to have artificially inflated its deportation numbers. It includes voluntary removals in the deportation statistics. But this is not removal because an illegal immigrant is not then subject to penalties for returning to the United States. For example, a single illegal immigrant can show up at the border and be voluntarily returned numerous times in one year — and counted each time as a removal.

How the Obama Administration Inflates Deportation Statistics
Tuesday, February 12, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

For the last few years, the Obama Administration has claimed that it's deporting a record number of illegal aliens. But, the Administration is adding numbers to its overall deportation statistics that have not been historically included in the total number of annual deportations. Here's a look at how the Obama Administration has artificially inflated the number of deportations.

Obama Administration Inflating Deportation Numbers 
 Misleading classifications make it look like traditional deportations are up. They’re not

February 10, 2014 6:00 PM
By Andrew Stiles
The ICE report noted that of those 368,644 removals, 235,093 (or nearly two-thirds) were carried out on individuals “apprehended while, or shortly after, attempting to illegally enter the United States.” This shows that while the Obama administration continues to deport illegal immigrants in large numbers, most of these removals do not constitute a “deportation” in the conventional sense.

Activists fighting to end deportations argue that, while the people being deported are here illegally, they’ve been living in the country for some time, often with relatives or children of their own — hence the charge that deportations “break up families.” Cases like these exist, but as the ICE data show, they are the minority. For the most part, the Obama administration is “deporting” people it catches in the act of entering the country illegally.

In fact, the Department of Homeland Security’s own guidelines distinguish between “removals” and “returns.” According to DHS, a removal is defined as “the compulsory and confirmed movement of an inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States based on an order of removal.”

Returns, meanwhile, are defined as “the confirmed movement of an inadmissible or deportable alien out of the United States not based on an order of removal. Most of the voluntary returns are of Mexican nationals who have been apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol and are returned to Mexico.” The primary difference between the two categories is that removals are processed by ICE, while returns are not.

In 2012, Representative Lamar Smith (R., Texas), then chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, discovered that the Obama administration was counting a certain number of “returns” as “removals.” Immigrants apprehended at the border are often times referred to ICE and subsequently processed as a removal. This has the effect of artificially inflated the number of removals, or deportations, by at least 50,000 per year. It is also a reason why what the administration refers to as “border apprehensions” are near historic lows: People are in fact being apprehended at the border, but their cases are grouped as removals in the statistical record.

Smith said in a statement at the time, following a committee review of internal ICE documents:

Since 2011, the Obama administration has included in its year-end deportation statistics the numbers from a Border Patrol program that returns illegal immigrants to Mexico right after they cross the border. It is dishonest to count illegal immigrants apprehended by the Border Patrol along the border as ICE removals. And these “removals” from the Border Patrol program do not subject the illegal immigrant to any penalties or bars for returning to the U.S. This means a single illegal immigrant can show up at the border and be removed numerous times in a single year — and counted each time as a removal. When the numbers from this Border Patrol program are removed from this year’s deportation data, it shows that removals are actually down nearly 20 percent from 2009. Another 40,000 removals are also included in the final deportation count but it is unclear where these removals came from.

Immigration expert Jessica Vaughan made the same argument last year when she testified on behalf of ICE agents suing the Obama administration in federal court. Vaughan analyzed the administration’s enforcement statistics and found that the actual number of illegal-immigrant removals had dropped 40 percent since June 2011.

Mexico confirms confrontation with Border Patrol agents

After issuing denials, Mexican officials admit that two Mexican soldiers — rather than smugglers — were in a standoff with Border Patrol agents in January.

By Richard A. Serrano and Tracy Wilkinson
April 1, 2014, 8:52 p.m.

WASHINGTON — Two heavily armed, camouflaged Mexican soldiers crossed 50 yards inside Arizona in January and drew their guns against U.S. Border Patrol agents who confronted them in a tense standoff, according to documents obtained by The Times/Tribune Washington Bureau.

U.S. officials said it was one of nearly two dozen border incursions by Mexican soldiers into southern Arizona in the last four years.

The Jan. 26 confrontation, described in a Border Patrol foreign military incursion report and confirmed in a separate letter from U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, ended when the Mexican soldiers retreated back over the border after U.S. agents — who also drew their weapons — summoned assistance. The soldiers, who misidentified themselves to border agents, claimed to be pursuing drug smugglers, documents show.

U.S. officials characterized the incident as one of the most serious incursions in recent years. Though gunfire was averted, the 35-minute confrontation underscored the continuing friction between the U.S. and Mexico when it comes to policing the often chaotic and violent Southwest border. It also raised questions among some U.S. officials about whether the Mexican soldiers were chasing drug smugglers, as they claimed, or protecting cartels as they used drug routes to Arizona.


At 9:20 a.m., Olaya said, he "positively identified the two individuals in tan, digital camouflage uniforms, on foot traveling westbound, on the United States side of the International Boundary Fence Line," the report states.

Confronting them, "both parties drew their weapons," the report said. The Mexican soldiers were carrying what was described as "G3 long arms" — an apparent reference to assault-style weapons — and identified themselves as members of the Mexican military's 80th Battalion.

The report said the men identified themselves as Carlos Antique Juarez and Jorge Alberto Hernandez-Morales. But Olaya noted that the name tapes on their uniforms "did not coincide with the names provided. One, in fact, was partially covered." Juarez's name tag said "Diaz"; Hernandez-Morales' tag showed only "Rue."

The soldiers told U.S. agents that they had been pursuing three suspects from Mexico. But when Olaya called for backup from the Border Patrol's Tucson sector, the two Mexicans retreated over the border.

In his letter, Kerlikowske noted that Border Patrol agents at that time had been actively pursuing three suspects in the isolated, rugged terrain, and had recovered three bundles of marijuana. But he said no arrests were made and the three subjects escaped.

DHS document: 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions released in 2013

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws.

An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics on arrests and deportations in 2013 showed that ICE agents encountered 193,357 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions but issued charging documents for only 125,478. More than 67,800 were released.

The data came from an end-of-year “Weekly Departures and Detention Report.”

The Center for Immigration Studies, a research group that favors stricter enforcement of immigration laws, estimates ICE agents released more than a third of illegal immigrants with criminal records they detained.

“ICE released 68,000 criminal aliens in 2013, or 35 percent of the criminal aliens encountered by officers. The vast majority of these releases occurred because of the Obama administration’s prosecutorial discretion policies,” Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote in a memo summarizing the DHS document.

ICE classifies illegal immigrants as criminal if they have been convicted of a crime, not including traffic offense, Vaughn noted.

The Center for Immigration Studies reports that ICE officials moved to deport 28 percent fewer illegal immigrants from the interior of the country in 2013 than in 2012.

The group obtained the law enforcement records through a lawsuit.

Santo Domingo.- A group of 100 Dominicans will arrive in the country Tuesday afternoon, deported from the United States, after serving time for drug trafficking, murder, forgery, fraud, rape, kidnapping and other felonies.

Reports out of Las Americas International Airport say the ex-convicts will arrive at 2pm aboard a plane chartered by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), escort by seven federal agents.

Of the 100 locals, 52 were convicted for drug trafficking and 48 for other crimes, according to local media reports, quoting sources at the airport, as well as the United States Embassy.

Illegal Aliens and Crime: Statistics not on Obama's side
August 21, 2011


"This... [is] more of the 'wait until they kill, rape, beat or molest someone here in America, then we'll deport them' logic. Any victims want to step up to the plate so they can make sure an illegal alien becomes a "felon", making him deportable under the Obama and Napolitano rules? Brilliant strategy.

Statistical studies regarding illegal aliens and criminal activity are few and far between. But in a 2007 Government Accountability Office study of a sample population of 55,322 illegal aliens, analysts discovered that:

* They were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien. Nearly all had more than one arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests. Most of the arrests occurred after 1990.

* They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien. One arrest incident may include multiple offenses, a fact that explains why there are nearly one and half times more offenses than arrests.

* Almost all of these illegal aliens were arrested for more than 1 offense. Slightly more than half of the 55,322 illegal aliens had between 2 and 10 offenses. About 45 percent of all offenses were drug or immigration offenses. About 15 percent were property-related offenses such as burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and property damage.
About 12 percent were for violent offenses such as murder, robbery, assault, and sex-related crimes. The balance was for such other offenses as traffic violations, including driving under the influence; fraud--including forgery and counterfeiting; weapons violations; and obstruction of justice.

* Eighty percent of all arrests occurred in three states--California, Texas, and Arizona. Specifically, about 58 percent of all arrests occurred in California, 14 percent in Texas, and 8 percent in Arizona.

Meanwhile, Barbara Coe, an Internet political activist and blogger, on Saturday reported on an FBI crime study that also shows heavy illegal alien involvement in criminal activity:

* 83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.

* 86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.

* 75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles , Phoenix and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.

* 24.9% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are Mexican nationals.

* 29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our state and Federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually.

* 53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.

* 50% plus of all gang members in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

* 71% plus of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California were stolen by Illegal aliens or "transport coyotes."

* 47% of cited/stopped drivers in California have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 47%, 92% are illegal aliens.

* 63% of cited/stopped drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 63%, 97% are illegal aliens.

* 66% of cited/stopped drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66% 98% are illegal aliens.

* 380,000 plus "anchor babies" were born in the US to illegal alien parents in just one year, making 380,000 babies automatically US citizens.

Jeb Bush: Many illegal immigrants come out of an ‘act of love’
By Ed O'Keefe   
April 6 at 2:44 pm

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.

The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannone Bream and portions of the event were later broadcast on the Fox News Channel.

Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made "a good effort" at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.

"A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave," he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas "would restore people's confidence" in the nation's immigration system.

"There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law," he added. "But the way I look at this -- and I'm going to say this, and it'll be on tape and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families -- the dad who loved their children -- was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony [ Oh but IT IS A FELONY! ie breaking a FEDERAL LAW] . It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families."

75 percent of illegal aliens failing test for Nevada driver's licenses
Jan 05, 2014

On Friday, the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles began issuing so-called 'Drivers' Authorization Cards' to illegal aliens. One need only present a foreign birth certificate, along with a passport or a Matricula Consular card to apply for the permits, which are good for one year.

In May 2013, the measure known as SB303, easily passed the Democrat-led Nevada state legislature, and Republican Governor Brian Sandoval signed the bill into law, extending driving privileges to those here illegally.

Gov. Sandoval told reporters:

Allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver's privilege card will increase the number of drivers on Nevada's roads that are insured and aware of traffic rules and regulations."

However, there is one problem...

Though thousands of illegal aliens have already applied for the 'Drivers' Authorization Cards,' only about one-fourth of them have actually been able to obtain one.

DMV spokesman David Fierro told KOLO 8 News:

We're seeing a pretty high failure rate state-wide. It's about 75 percent"”

So, why are so many failing the test?

The majority of illegal aliens living in Nevada are Mexican nationals, as such, an examination of Mexico’s driving laws may hold the answer...

In six Mexican states as well as in Mexico City, issuing agencies do not administer any sort of test before handing-out driver's licenses. In these locations, one need only pay a fee to obtain a license (about $45 in Mexico City).

Three other states require the applicant to sit through a class, after which all attendees are issued licenses, while many other states give tests consisting of rather easy multiple choice questions.

And what happens when a driver is pulled over in Mexico, say for speeding?
The Mexican travel website gives the following advice:

“Speeding is, as a rule, easily taken care of by offering to pay the fine on the spot. If you cannot pay on the spot, one of three things will occur:

· The officer will accept less money.

· The officer will accompany you to an ATM while waiting around the corner.

· The officer will take your driver's license and you'll receive a ticket. You will need to pay the fine to retrieve your driver’s license.

As for DUI laws, only 15 of Mexico’s 32 states have legal driving limits for a driver's Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC).

The lack of standardized testing, the absence of drunk-driving laws and corruption all add up to make Mexico's roads, among the most dangerous in the world. Of course, as Mexican nationals make their way to the U.S., they bring their country's sub-standard driving culture here, along with their cheap labor

Nevada has now joined Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington and Utah, which already issue licenses to illegal aliens.

[ DeFacto Amnesty in effect under Obama ... ]
Analysis of ICE data: Amnesty is already in effect for nearly all illegals who are already here
posted at 11:21 am on March 26, 2014 by Allahpundit

A three-page analysis from Jeff Sessions’s office. The good news is, at least ICE is prioritizing correctly. Illegals who’ve committed serious criminal offenses are the first out the door, followed by people caught at the border trying to sneak in and those caught inside the U.S. after having been deported before.

The other 99.92 percent who are already here are, however, apparently here to stay, unless/until a Republican president sends down the order to restart deportations among that group. And given the GOP leadership’s icy panic about further alienating Latino voters, the odds of that are near zero.

Remember this the next time amnesty shills like Luis Gutierrez screech that Obama is the “deporter-in-chief.”


By the way, House Democrats are bringing a discharge petition to the floor today to try to force a vote on immigration reform. Remind me again why Republicans are opposed to it. If a de facto amnesty is already in effect and it’s certain that a Republican president won’t undo Obama’s actions for fear of a political backlash, what exactly is the reason to keep fighting formal legalization? The fix is in.

$Rand wants that POTUS nomination selection ... BAD ....
Rand Paul: Amnesty Legislation Could Pass This Year
by Tony Lee 25 Apr 2014

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he believes some type of amnesty legislation could pass this year.

Appearing at Harvard's Institute of Politics, Paul again said that he voted against the Senate's immigration bill because there were not enough visas for construction and farm workers and said he still thought "something could be passed this year" on immigration. Legislation has stalled after Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the House GOP leadership's "immigration principles" as amnesty.

Paul then told the Harvard students that about 40% of illegal immigrants came to the country legally. Though many of these now illegal immigrants have overstayed their visas, Paul claimed that most of these illegal immigrants simply just got new jobs. He has also previously said that these illegal immigrants simply lost their documents.
Earlier this week at the University of Chicago's Institute for Politics, Paul backed work visas for all of the country's illegal immigrants and said they should not be forced to leave the country when applying for citizenship.
Senator Rand Paul Promotes Legalization for Illegal Aliens
By Brenda Walker on January 5, 2014 at 10:26pm

Why can’t anyone wearing a suit understand the connection between permissive immigration (legal and illegal) and American unemployment? Do universities no longer teach supply and demand in Econ 101?

To liberals and their media poodles, there is no contradiction between a segment on a suffering long-unemployed American worker followed by an item about mass legalization with immediate work permits for millions of illegal aliens. (To elite Washington, the jobless American needs more unemployment benefits, and the illegal alien, who does just fine without “papers” as shown by length of residence, needs legalization for jobs.)

Which is exactly what happened on ABC’s “This Week” on January 5:

And then Senator Paul said he wants mass legalization for the illegals who can then lawfully snatch American jobs even though the result world be even worse hurt for US citizens. He believes in “very expansive work visas” — not just easy farm picker entrance, but the whole range of employment. He must be on the Mark Zuckerberg list of campaign check recipients, er friends.

The billionaire Facebook founder met with Sen. Paul in a sit-down meeting last spring in Silicon Valley, and it’s likely that increased tech visas were discussed. The anti-sovereignty lobby, which now includes Zuckerberg, has spent $1.5 billion since 2007 to open American borders.
Action plan to defeat the amnesty, H1B-loving RINOS and the immigration deform bill
Posted on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 2:26:02 PM by Javeth

Thought this would be worth a sort-of repost to help us take down these RINO traitors supporting amnesty and the H1B in the immigration deform bill.

1. Launch a general full-scale assault on the amnesty and H1B-pushing turncoat RINO’s like Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan and Loser Lindsey Graham, especially House Reps like Ryan and Senators like Graham who will have to face primaries in 2014, but even turncoats like Rubio who aren't up until 2016. Let’s work to recruit primary challenges for each of them as well as any other pro-amnesty RINO, and encourage them to start revving up immediately, as in today, not waiting until 2014 or later. Graham is especially vulnerable as his popularity is dropping and South Carolina conservatives are already seeking a primary challenger

Immigration Overhaul for 2014: Decidedly Not Dead
By David Eldridge   Posted at 11:15 a.m. on April 25 2014

A bipartisan overhaul of immigration, considered dead in the water just a few weeks ago, is not only alive, according to the House Republican leading efforts to broker a deal — it’s gaining steam.

Diaz-Balart, a major player in ongoing efforts to produce a bill that could balance Republican demands for border security with Democratic calls for legal status for the undocumented, said a solution is closer than ever.

“I think we finally have the policy right,” he said in a phone interview. “I think we have figured out a way to secure, to have border and interior security
The Florida lawmaker’s optimism comes as the immigration overhaul, declared dead by pundits and politicians alike earlier this year, is back in the headlines. Boehner, speaking at a Rotary Club luncheon in Ohio, doubled down on his support for an overhaul and openly mocked those in the Republican Conference who have dismissed immigration proposals as “amnesty.”
The comments came almost a week after the Wall Street Journal reported that Boehner told backers at a fundraiser he is “hell-bent” on passing an overhaul this year, but the speaker’s spokesman has said there is no plan to push immigration in the House until President Barack Obama convinces Republicans he will enforce the nation’s immigration laws.
Getting legislation that can get you to that 218 you need is not easy on this issue,” he said, but “I feel really good about it.”

Why Is John Boehner Always Crying?
Boehner: No 'secret conspiracy' to jam through immigration overhaul [ That's the PLan! ]
By Russell Berman - 04/29/14 11:06 AM EDT

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday told a private Republican Party meeting that there is no “secret conspiracy” to jam through an immigration overhaul, according to one member in the room.

Boehner used the meeting to walk back his comments last week, which were seen as mocking his own members for lacking the courage to tackle immigration reform that he has advocated but that many conservative in the House Republican conference continue to resist.

Boehner's comments follow a prediction by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday that Congress would pass an immigration reform bill this year.

“I want to let you in on a little secret. We are going to pass that bill and sign it into law this year," Schumer, a member of the Gang of Eight that helped push an immigration package through the Senate last year, said at the Citizenship Now immigration hotline in New York, according to the Daily News.

Scabies-Infected Illegal Immigrants Pass Infestation to US Law Enforcement

Several U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) sector have reportedly contracted scabies from contact with detained illegal immigrants.

Sack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart Texas that illegal immigrants are often not screened for diseases during processing.

He said, "Even Border Patrol does not screen people for such diseases due to the sheer numbers of people who need to be processed. Immigrants aren't even screened if they're going into a public jail or an immigration detention facility."

Sharp increases in illegal immigration into the U.S. this year has caused processing facilities to become overcrowded--authorities simply do not have time to screen every apprehended illegal immigrant for diseases.

RGV Border Patrol spokesman Daniel Tirado told Breitbart Texas that his sector is overwhelmed with the number of illegal immigrants that currently need to be processed. "We're catching an average of 1,000 per day and our agents are processing them around the clock. Processing takes between one to two hours per individual--it varies case by case," he said.

According to the Associated Press, the RGV sector has arrested more than 130,000 people for immigration violations since October 1--this marks a 67 percent increase from last year.
Texas-based human stash houses, sometimes containing hundreds of illegal immigrants, could pose disease-related threats to surrounding U.S. citizens. Sometimes, such houses are located near children. Early in May, Breitbart Texas reported on a large human stash house busted across from a Texas day care.

Well its official ... "Latinos" have "migrated" their way to a majority in California:
In 2014, Latinos will surpass whites as largest racial/ethnic group in California
By Mark Hugo Lopez

According to California Governor Jerry Brown’s new state budget, Latinos are projected to become the largest single racial/ethnic group in the state by March of this year, making up 39% of the state’s population. That will make California only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality, meaning they are not more than half but they comprise the largest percentage of any group.

California’s demographers also project that in mid-2014, the state’s residents will be 38.8% white non-Hispanic, 13% Asian American or Pacific Islander, 5.8% black non-Hispanic, and less than 1% Native American. But the state’s demographics in 2014 are very different from what they had been. In 2000, California’s 33.9 million residents were 46.6% white non-Hispanic, 32.3% Latino, 11.1% Asian American or Pacific Islander, 6.4% black non-Hispanic and about 1% Native American. In 1990, white non-Hispanics made up more than half (57.4%) of the state’s then 29.7 million residents, while 25.4% of Californians were Latino, 9.2% were Asian American or Pacific Islander, 7.1% were black non-Hispanic and about 1% were Native American.

This 2014 demographic milestone will arrive about eight months later than the state originally expected. Last year, California’s Department of Finance demographers projected that the Latino population would match the non-Hispanic white population in size by mid-2013.
When this milestone occurs, it will mark the first time since California became a state in 1850 that Latinos are the Golden State’s single largest racial or ethnic group
Texas may be next. According to Pew Research Center tabulations from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, in 2012 there were 10 million Latinos and 11.6 million non-Hispanic whites living in Texas, making up 38.2% and 44.4%, respectively, of the state’s 26.1 million residents. By contrast, in 2000, Latinos made up 31.9% and white non-Hispanics made up 52.4% of the state’s 20.8 million residents. These numbers indicate the Hispanic population is growing more quickly than the non-Hispanic white population—since 2000 Hispanics have made up 63.5% of the Lone Star state’s population growth.

After Texas, though, it’s unlikely any other state will follow any time soon. Florida’s 4.5 million Hispanics—the third largest Hispanic state population—make up just 23.2% of all Floridians, while white non-Hispanics make up 56.8%. In Arizona, Hispanics make up 30.2% of the state’s population, and non-Hispanic whites make up 56.9%. And in Nevada, the state’s 753,000 Hispanics make up 27.3% of the state’s population compared with white non-Hispanics’ 52.8%.

This month, California will become the second state where Latinos are the largest ethnic group
Producer Leo Hornak
Producer Jonathan Kealing
March 17, 2014 · 4:30 PM EDT

This month, the state is projected to reach another milestone, when the state's Hispanics become the largest demographic group  — like New Mexico. But, as The Guardian reports, the political clout of this group in California will lag behind its population numbers.

Of the 53 million Latinos in the US, just 24 million can vote. The rest are a mix of undocumented immigrants, legal immigrants without voting rights and young people who won't be able to vote for a few more years. Also complicating matters, Latinos vote at a rate of about 50 percent, which doesn't compare well with the roughly two-thirds of whites and African Americans who cast ballots. In California, more Hispanics are being elected, but still not at the rates their population would suggest.

Children's Crusade (1212AD)
Tidal wave of ‘Dreamers’ surges across the border, looking for amnesty
By: John Hayward   
5/29/2014 08:47 AM

This is the most predictable news in recent history.  Anyone who doesn’t understand what’s happening at the border, as the number of juvenile illegal aliens surges by a thousand percent since 2011, is an absolute fool.  Unfortunately, blinkered fools are at the helm during our immigration debate, so this article from Reuters hems and haws through half a dozen tortured explanations for the astonishing surge of young illegals before arriving at the obvious primary reason: they’re coming because they know the open borders crowd is dying to give them amnesty.  Free citizenship is dangled before people from hellish Central American countries, and they quite logically and understandably come to collect it.

Tens of thousands of children unaccompanied by parents or relatives are flooding across the southern U.S. border illegally, forcing the Obama administration and Congress to grapple with both a humanitarian crisis and a budget dilemma.

An estimated 60,000 such children will pour into the United States this year, according to the administration, up from about 6,000 in 2011. Now, Washington is trying to figure out how to pay for their food, housing and transportation once they are taken into custody.

The flow is expected to grow. The number of unaccompanied, undocumented immigrants who are under 18 will likely double in 2015 to nearly 130,000 and cost U.S. taxpayers $2 billion, up from $868 million this year, according to administration estimates.

The shortage of housing for these children, some as young as 3, has already become so acute that an emergency shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, has been opened and can accommodate 1,000 of them, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in an interview with Reuters.
The minors flooding over the border are often teenagers leaving behind poverty or violence in Mexico and other parts of Central America such as Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. They are sometimes seeking to reunite with a parent who is already in the United States, also without documentation.

Has there ever been a more obvious case of cause and effect?  The American ruling class fawns over young illegals as “Dreamers,” holding them up as better than native-born and legal citizens in many ways, promising them a full menu of benefits.  The only real debate concerns how sweeping their amnesty will be, how long it will take before they have full access to the panoply of American social programs, and whether it will all arrive via Obama’s executive orders or action by the open-borders crowd in Congress.

We’re going to spend a few billion dollars coping with “unintended consequences” that arrive before the laws are even passed.  Usually you have to pass an ill-considered law before the “unintended consequences” come knocking, but in this case the consequences are already parked in emergency shelters in Texas, costing the American taxpayer $252 apiece per day.

Who can blame them?  The American Ruling Class is handing them a gold-trimmed invitation to illegally cross the border.  The other factors cited by Reuters – horrible economic conditions, political violence and drug wars – are certainly incentives to make the journey, but the sure and certain promise of fabulous rewards for any young person who gets a foot across the border is a magnet that outweighs other factors.  

Under Barack Obama, it’s become almost impossible to get deported, even for adult illegals who commit serious additional crimes, contrary to the weird efforts to mythologize Obama as some kind of deportation hardliner. ”Dreamers” have every reason to think crossing the border means they win the immigration game.

It’s sadly amusing to see references to the supposedly improving American economy as factor in increased illegal immigration, seeing as how the first quarter of 2014 was just officially revised downward from near-zero economic growth into an outright contraction.  But even in the grip of endless Obama malaise, the U.S. economy offers a far better future than what the young illegals are fleeing, and one suspects the news about the U.S. economy most of them are getting is closer to White House spin than the unlovely truth.

Murderers, Rapists, Kidnappers: Over 36,000 Criminal Illegal Immigrants Released In 2013


Nearly 200 murderers, over 400 rapists, and 300 kidnappers in the U.S. illegally were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement while awaiting deportation proceedings, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

A total of 36,007 criminal illegal immigrants that were being processed for deportation were freed in 2013. Together, they committed nearly 88,000 crimes, according to the report, published Monday.

“I was astonished at not only the huge number of convicted criminals who were freed from ICE custody last year – an average of almost 100 a day — but also at the large number of very serious crimes they had committed,” said Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, in a statement.

ICE gathered the statistics — which include a breakdown by crime — in response to congressional inquiry following another report released earlier this year by the Center of Immigration Studies.

That report, which was based on internal Department of Homeland Security documents, showed that ICE encountered over 193,000 illegal immigrant convicts. Charging documents were issued for 125,000, and nearly 68,000 were released.

That review also found that 870,000 illegal immigrants had been removed from ICE dockets despite being in defiance of the law. The number of illegal aliens targeted for deportation fell 28 percent between 2012 and 2013, according to the documents.

The 36,007 illegal immigrants reported Monday were freed by ICE during the final disposition of their cases. The 68,000 from the previous report were criminals who encountered ICE agents — often in jails — but were released without undergoing deportation proceedings.

The 36,007 were released by bond, parole, unsupervised release, or on their own recognizance.

Now we have Sanctuary Prisons ....
June 1, 2014, 7:38 PM

More than a dozen California counties have stopped honoring requests from immigration agents to hold potentially deportable inmates beyond the length of their jail terms, saying the practice may expose local sheriffs to liability.

In recent weeks, officials in counties including Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino have stopped complying with so-called ICE detainers, citing a federal court ruling in April that found an Oregon county liable for damages after it held an inmate beyond her release date so she could be transferred into Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody.

The California counties are among about 100 municipalities across the country that have stopped the practice since the ruling, according to the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, an advocacy group that is tracking the issue.


"It's very significant because it represents a reduction of the involvement of local police in federal immigration enforcement," said Hiroshi Motomura, an immigration law professor at UCLA. He said the Oregon court ruling had changed the long-running debate over ICE detainers.

"It's not just political anymore," Motomura said. "It's about liability."

ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said the agency hopes local jurisdictions continue to comply with detainers, which she described as an essential tool in capturing immigrants who pose a public safety risk.
Federal statistics show that more than 33,000 people who were identified by immigration authorities while in custody in L.A. County have been deported since August 2009, when the county first signed on to a federal program known as Secure Communities

Under the program, fingerprints of inmates booked by local law enforcement authorities are checked against federal immigration databases. ICE agents use the information to decide whether to ask police to hold the inmates for up to 48 hours to give ICE time to take them into custody.

Last fall, advocates won a major victory when Gov. Jerry Brown signed the Trust Act, which instructs local officials to honor ICE detainers only in cases when inmates have been charged with or convicted of a serious offense.

The recent changes go beyond that, with counties deciding to stop honoring ICE detainers altogether.

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said he made the decision last week after consulting with county attorneys about the Oregon lawsuit.

In that case, an immigrant from Mexico named Maria Miranda Olivares completed a jail sentence for violating a restraining order but was kept behind bars for an additional 19 hours on a federal hold at the request of immigration agents, who eventually took her into custody.

Lawyers for the county argued in a lawsuit brought by Miranda that the sheriff was required to hold her. The judge disagreed, saying ICE detainers are not mandatory and did not demonstrate probable cause for Miranda to be held. The judge said the county was liable for damages.
Sheriffs from several counties, including Orange and Kern, say they will not change their policies relating to ICE detainers.

Lt. Jeff Hallock, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department, said officials in his agency reviewed the federal court decision and decided their current policy was appropriate. He said Orange County operates in compliance with the Trust Act.

Breaking: San Francisco Ends All Unconstitutional ICE Holds

San Francisco  immigrant coalition welcomes SF’s decision to end all unconstitutional ICE holds
SF now in line with new standard set by scores counties across the US; Due process truly a reality for all

San Francisco – Today, in the wake of a major federal court decision that has spurred more than 80 counties in several states to completely end the unconstitutional practice of holding immigrants in jail for extra time solely for deportation purposes, San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi announced that the county jail would also stop responding to the unconstitutional requests altogether.

 The new policy corrects a deficiency in the city’s landmark “Due Process for All ordinance,” upholding basic constitutional protections for all San Franciscans and protecting the city from significant liability.

In California, the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Sonoma, Sacramento, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, Santa Cruz, and Monterey, among others, have already adopted parallel practices.

300 more immigrant children shipped to Arizona

NOGALES, Ariz. - Three hundred more unaccompanied migrant children — with more on the way — were transported Saturday from southern Texas into a makeshift way station set up in a Border Patrol detention facility in Nogales, Ariz., as government agencies took additional steps to improve the living conditions there.

By today, more than 1,000 children are expected to fill the detention center as the government continues to deal with the surge of unaccompanied minors apprehended crossing the border illegally in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Tony Banegas, Honduras consul to the United States in Arizona, visited the site to find out how many children are from Honduras. He said 764 children were at the facility as of Saturday evening, including 236 from Honduras.
Multiple unmarked white passenger buses entered the station early Saturday. They carried what appeared to be young people into the center. Some buses left the station in the afternoon, though it is unclear whether they were carrying only children
The young people inside the buses could be seen smiling, waving their hands and making peace signs.
"Now they won't just be giving them burritos," said Chacón, who said 230 of the children are from El Salvador. "They'll be giving them fresher food."
The transfer drew criticism from Brewer on Friday, when she issued a statement expressing her concern.

"If the Obama administration put half the effort into securing our border as it has invested to institute this operation, our state and nation would not be facing this situation," she said in the statement.

The situation in Nogales is a continuation of the ongoing immigration issues in Arizona involving undocumented families. The families, most of them from the Central American nations of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, were apprehended by officials in southern Texas. Because of overcrowding there, the families were flown to Arizona, and many families with children were released and taken to Greyhound bus stations in Tucson and Phoenix.

Federal officials told Brewer Friday that the practice will continue for the foreseeable future, and this weekend more than 1,000 illegal immigrant children will be “dumped” in Arizona. Adults and family units will also arrive, though Brewer was not told how many, her office said.

Reports first surfaced last week that scores of illegal immigrants in Texas were being flown, bused and then abandoned out of state in Arizona and elsewhere. After learning of the practice, Brewer sent a scathing letter to the president on Monday posing a string of questions about the policy. Brewer said Friday what little she has learned since then has made her even more concerned.

This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure – now apparently intentionally – while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable,” she said in a statement.

Incredibly, according to Brewer, the Regime never informed her administration of their plan to bus illegals into her state, nor have they explained it.

The governor is demanding answers from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and calling on the president to cease and desist.

“I am disturbed and outraged that President Obama’s administration continues to implement this dangerous and inhumane policy, meanwhile neglecting to answer crucial questions our citizens demand and deserve,” she said.

Planes carrying 130 undocumented immigrants land in El Paso
By Luis Carlos Lopez / El Paso Times
Posted:   06/07/2014 10:57:41 PM MDT

The immigrants released in the U.S., including those in El Paso, will have to report to immigration officials within 15 days as directed by federal authorities, the Associated Press reported.

"Immigrants apprehended crossing the border in South Texas will be flown to El Paso so Border Patrol can assist with processing. The vast majority of individuals transferred were family units from Central America and Mexico with children," an El Paso official said.

On Saturday, Maria, who preferred not to give her last name and the names of her two daughters, stopped at the El Paso Greyhound station Downtown.

Maria is a Guatemalan undocumented immigrant. She said she was too nervous to remember dates and details of how and where she was detained.

She added that she was on her way to Tennessee to reunite with her sister.

Maria said that before being released from immigration custody, immigration officials communicated with her sister to arrange travel plans to Tennessee.

"Immigration told me, 'You are free, you can leave,' " Maria said.

She added that she left Guatemala on May 25 and that she was arrested on Thursday. Maria, who said she did not have any money for food for family, said she was found in the desert and that she was still nervous about traveling.

"I'm a little scared," Maria said in Spanish. "Now, we are here without money," she said.

Maria said she is supposed to meet with immigration officials July 8.

Cloward-Piven at the border
By: John Hayward   
6/9/2014 09:03 AM

Back in the Sixties, Marxists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven came up with a great strategy for overloading and collapsing democratic welfare states, paving the way for socialist tyranny.  Basically, the idea was to hit the system with a tidal wave of demands it couldn’t refuse, and couldn’t possibly fulfill.  The Left would then insist that the moral argument for the system remained intact, so the only way to meet those impossible demands was to scrap every vestige of Constitutional restraint and republican self-government, instituting a totalitarian system that in theory would forcibly restructure society to promote “fairness” and give all those government dependents what they “deserve.”  (In practice, of course, what you actually get is an iron-fisted dictatorship that cooks up reports to make itself look good, or simply tells the unhappy citizens to shut up and obey when things deteriorate to the point that no volume of phony reports can paper over the problems – say, when the glorious worker’s paradise of Venezuela runs out of tap water.)

Cloward and Piven were specifically interested in replacing welfare programs with a government-guaranteed annual income for everyone – an idea that still emerges from the more absurd quarters of the Left occasionally – but the basic idea of overloading the republican system and replacing it with centrally-planned tyranny can be applied in many different ways

 Take a look at the humanitarian crisis on the southern border, which I wrote about two weeks ago.  It has since burst onto the front pages with some astonishing stories, including leaked photos of illegal alien children – many of them 12 years old and younger – “warehoused” in overcrowded facilities, where there are growing concerns about sanitation and disease.  CBS News in Houston writes of unaccompanied minors sleeping on plastic boards in a Nogales, Arizona warehouse after being flown in from south Texas.  According to some estimates, there are nearly a thousand children in that warehouse now.

There’s nothing complicated about what is happening here.  Barack Obama invited these people to send their children to the United States as refugees.  He’s already made illegal use of executive orders to gut the immigration system; he’s talking about doing it again, and the people of South and Central America can hear him just fine

Young illegals are particularly cherished by the American ruling class, which has dubbed them “Dreamers” and frankly describes them as superior in motivation and potential to native-born young people.

Contrary to popular mythology about President Obama being some sort of deportation hard-liner, the truth is that most of his “deportations” were actually catch-and-release scenarios played out at the border – people who were essentially repulsed rather than caught and deported


Does the amnesty chorus recoil from this humanitarian crisis in shame and ask, “My God, what have we done?”
  Here’s GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor talking with the White House over the weekend about making a deal, from the Daily Caller:

“I have told the president, there are some things we can work on together,” he said in the WTVR interview.

“We can work on the border security bill together, we can work on something like the kids,” he said referring to his proposal to offer some undetermined variety of amnesty to the children and youths of millions of parents who entered the country illegally.

So they’re specifically portraying the very same incentives that brought the flood of minors to our border as a point of agreement from which a deal can be built.

Soon we’ll have millions of new citizens placing heavy demands on our maternal government, with hundreds of thousands more streaming in every year, eager to claim the prizes that have been offered to them.

The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty". Cloward and Piven were a married couple who were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work. The strategy was formulated in a May 1966 article in liberal[1] magazine The Nation titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty".[
Cloward and Piven’s article is focused on forcing the Democratic Party, which in 1966 controlled the presidency and both houses of the United States Congress, to take federal action to help the poor.
In papers published in 1971 and 1977, Cloward and Piven argued that mass unrest in the United States, especially between 1964 and 1969, did lead to a massive expansion of welfare rolls, though not to the guaranteed-income program that they had hoped for.[8] Political scientist Robert Albritton disagreed, writing in 1979 that the data did not support this thesis; he offered an alternative explanation for the rise in welfare caseloads.

The Nation later stated that Beck blames the "Cloward-Piven Strategy" for "the financial crisis of 2008, healthcare reform, Obama's election and massive voter fraud" and has resulted in the posting of much violent and threatening rhetoric by users on Beck's website, including death threats against Frances Fox Piven.[15] For her part, Piven vigorously continues to defend the original idea, calling its conservative interpretation "lunatic

The Cloward-Piven Strategy
By Richard Poe

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue an African American man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled "The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty" in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called "crisis strategy" or "Cloward-Piven Strategy," as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

In their 1966 article, Cloward and Piven charged that the ruling classes used welfare to weaken the poor; that by providing a social safety net, the rich doused the fires of rebellion. Poor people can advance only when "the rest of society is afraid of them," Cloward told The New York Times on September 27, 1970. Rather than placating the poor with government hand-outs, wrote Cloward and Piven, activists should work to sabotage and destroy the welfare system; the collapse of the welfare state would ignite a political and financial crisis that would rock the nation; poor people would rise in revolt; only then would "the rest of society" accept their demands.

The key to sparking this rebellion would be to expose the inadequacy of the welfare state. Cloward-Piven's early promoters cited radical organizer Saul Alinsky as their inspiration. "Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules," Alinsky wrote in his 1971 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one.


Their article called for "cadres of aggressive organizers" to use "demonstrations to create a climate of militancy." Intimidated by threats of black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, leftwing journalists, would float the idea of "a federal program of income redistribution," in the form of a guaranteed living income for all -- working and non-working people alike. Local officials would clutch at this idea like drowning men to a lifeline. They would apply pressure on Washington to implement it. With every major city erupting into chaos, Washington would have to act. This was an example of what are commonly called Trojan Horse movements -- mass movements whose outward purpose seems to be providing material help to the downtrodden, but whose real objective is to draft poor people into service as revolutionary foot soldiers; to mobilize poor people en masse to overwhelm government agencies with a flood of demands beyond the capacity of those agencies to meet. The flood of demands was calculated to break the budget, jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock, and bring the system crashing down. Fear, turmoil, violence and economic collapse would accompany such a breakdown -- providing perfect conditions for fostering radical change. That was the theory.

Cloward and Piven recruited a militant black organizer named George Wiley to lead their new movement. In the summer of 1967, Wiley founded the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO). His tactics closely followed the recommendations set out in Cloward and Piven's article. His followers invaded welfare offices across the United States -- often violently -- bullying social workers and loudly demanding every penny to which the law "entitled" them. By 1969, NWRO claimed a dues-paying membership of 22,500 families, with 523 chapters across the nation
WARNING! Obama using Cloward & Piven strategy & Alinsky to destroy America

June 14, 2012
Josh Bernstein - Phoenix Political Buzz Examiner

You read that correctly. What you are about to read is not only frightening, but unfortunately for America also true. This article will present a very strong argument that shows that most of Barack Obama’s decisions regarding the economy have been made intentionally. I will back up my claims with facts and statistics while giving clear and concise examples of each.

Some of you may be familiar with the Cloward and Piven Strategy but most of you have not. If you are a limited government, freedom loving, patriotic American like me than you will want to continue reading. This article may anger, scare, and shake some of you to the very foundation of your core. If it has that effect on you than I did my job. Medicine is not supposed to taste like cherries and bubble gum; it is supposed to be bitter and tough to swallow. The nastier it tastes usually the more effective it is. Consider this your first dose.
What is the Cloward and Piven Strategy?

Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven were two married sociology professors at Columbia University in New York. In 1966, they wrote an article titled, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to end Poverty.” The article was published in the very left leaning publication The Nation.

The article laid out a strategy that called for the overloading of the United States Public Welfare System in order to precipitate a crisis that would be so vast and so sudden that it would completely collapse the financial infrastructure of the economy; thus creating a “guaranteed” income in the hopes of ending poverty. They stated that many Americans who could qualify for welfare related benefits were not receiving them and encouraged them to do so. They called upon the white middle class, the minority workers, and the under the poverty line working poor to enroll in welfare programs in order to bankrupt local and state governments. Their ultimate goal was to replace Capitalism with a complete government centered and controlled economy.

Where did these two radical professors get their influences from?

Saul David Alinsky was a community organizer and writer. Let me repeat that. Saul David Alinsky was a community organizer and writer. Barack Obama was also a community organizer. Saul Alinsky is often referred to as the founder of modern day community organizing and was a major figure on the south side of Chicago. Barack Obama cut his teeth as a community organizer on the south side of Chicago.
Barack Obama does not believe in free market Capitalism. A very famous slip of the tongue showed us all who he really is. His “spread the wealth around”comment to Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher also known as “Joe the Plumber” back in 2008 truly revealed his true intentions.

Do you really think that Barack Obama spent all this money to help America or to destroy it? Do you think it is just an accident that almost 47 million people are on food stamps or is it intentional? Do you think the health care bill was passed to help the uninsured or was it to take over 1/5th of the US Economy?

These are the questions that the American people are asking themselves everyday. President Obama has been influenced by some of the most radical figures in American history. Everything about this president is held in secrecy. I can not remember in my lifetime a president that so many people knew so little about? From his college transcripts to his Harvard thesis, nothing has been made public. Who is the person that sits in the Oval Office? How did this complete unknown rise to the most powerful position as leader of the free world? Maybe these questions will never be answered but they are questions that need to be asked.

The survival of our very nation just may hang in the balance.

Senate panel gives $2 billion for child immigrants
Published June 10, 2014
Associated Press

A Senate appropriations panel voted Tuesday to give the Obama administration $2 billion it requested to handle the dramatic increase in child immigrants caught trying to illegally cross the Mexican border without their parents.

The money is more than $1.1 billion more than President Barack Obama initially asked for in his budget proposal for the Health and Human Services division that cares for and houses immigrant children caught alone at the border. It would effectively come from yet unspecified changes in mandatory programs.

The number of children found trying to cross the Mexican border without parents has skyrocketed in recent years....

Office of Management and Budget Deputy Director Brian Deese wrote to committee chairwoman Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., to formally ask for more money on May 30.

The HHS budget approved by the committee would also allow the government to move money from other areas if the flow of child immigrants grows beyond the latest estimate of up to 90,000. The full Senate will have the final say on its version of the HHS budget. And the House has not yet acted on the issue.

Most children caught crossing the border alone are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and cannot be quickly repatriated.

Under federal law, the children are supposed to be turned over to HHS within 72 hours. Most are then reunited with parents or other relatives already living in the United States.

Because of the massive influx of children this year, the Border Patrol has been forced to house many children in local patrol stations and recently has moved some young immigrants to Nogales, Arizona, where they are being quartered temporarily in a warehouse.

The administration has turned to the Department of Defense to use three military bases in California, Texas and Oklahoma to temporarily house other children once they are transferred to HHS care.

Rand Paul throws weight behind immigration reform effort

Makes calls with Grover Norquist seeking conservative support


Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday waded deeper into an issue that has proved perilous to some of his GOP colleagues, throwing his political weight behind an establishment lobby effort to get Congress to reform the country’s immigration system this year.

Mr. Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican from Kentucky and possible 2016 presidential hopeful, participated in a telephone conference call to conservative and business leaders in favor of immigration reform in an effort brokered by anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, The Washington Times has learned.

The business group, the Partnership for a New American Economy, immediately blasted an email Wednesday evening to supporters crowing that Mr. Paul had formally joined its pro-reform effort.

The timing of the call only heightened the potential stakes for Mr. Paul just one day after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was shockingly ousted from office in the Virginia Republican primary in favor of a little-known college professor.

Tea party activists who whipped up a get-out-the-vote effort for Mr. Cantor’s opponent said they were motivated by the incumbent’s advocacy for immigration reform, actions on Obamacare and vote to raise the nation’s debt ceiling.

Mr. Cantor was the second high-profile Republican to suffer political damage by stepping forward on the immigration issue. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, another potential presidential contender, lost the support of his tea party base when he advocated a plan for immigration that some argued created a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

On Thursday morning, Mr. Paul’s staff insisted the senator does not support amnesty.

It occurred to me just now what -- from a legislative (as opposed to rhetorical) point of view -- might perhaps be the best public relations approach to this issue.

Why not pressure Congress to enact a bill that simply applies to the nations bordering the U.S. the same immigration controls they already apply to us?

Oklahoma Army Base To House Up To 1,200 Illegal Immigrant Children
June 10, 2014 6:13 AM

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — As many as 1,200 children who were detained while trying to enter the U.S. illegally will be taken to Fort Sill this week as federal officials try to find their families or place them with a sponsor, federal and military officials said Monday.

The unaccompanied minors, most of them teenagers from Central America, will start arriving at Fort Sill from Arizona starting Friday, according to Fort Sill and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The children and teens are among the more than 47,000 unaccompanied minors taken into custody at the border since October.

Federal authorities plan to use a holding facility in Nogales, Arizona, as a way station where the children will be vaccinated and checked medically before being sent to Fort Sill and other housing facilities in Texas and California.

Fort Sill said it will temporarily hold between 600 and 1,200 minors in vacant housing at the Army post for up to four months, or as long as directed. DHHS’s Administration for Children and Families will be responsible for their care.
The move is part of the Unaccompanied Alien Children program, which provides foster care, group homes and residential treatment centers for minors who try to cross the border without their parents or guardians. It also provides classroom education, health care, vocational training and legal services, according to DHHS’s website.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security last month started flying immigrants in the U.S. illegally to Arizona from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas after the number of immigrants — including more than 48,000 children traveling on their own — overwhelmed the Border Patrol there.

Rick Perry Tells Texas State Police to Boost Border Security
Noah Rayman @noahrayman
  June 19, 2014

Texas can’t afford to wait for Washington to act on this crisis and we will not sit idly by while the safety and security of our citizens are threatened"

Texas Gov. Rick Perry and other state leaders called Wednesday evening for a “surge” in law enforcement along the border, announcing plans to inject $1.3 million more into the effort every week in response to a recent influx of illegal crossings.


The intensified security operations will be in effect at least through the end of the year, and will replicate a program last fall targeting human and drug trafficking. Perry and fellow Republicans Lt. Gov. David Dewhust and Texas State House Speaker Joe Straus called for the enhanced security measures in an open letter to the head of the Texas Dept. of Public Safety.

The governor’s statement cited federal numbers detailing a spike in border crossings and blamed the federal government for not doing enough to secure the border.

Until the federal government fulfills its duty, it falls on the State of Texas to address those obligations,” the state leaders said in the joint letter to the director of the Texas DPS

Border Security ‘Surge’ Could Create Ghost Towns Along Rio Grande
June 19, 2014 7:24 AM

McALLEN (KRLD) – The area from the Rio Grande Valley to Laredo has become ‘ground zero’ for the flood illegal immigration into Texas.

In an effort to combat the recent flood of immigrants, Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and Speaker Joe Straus authorized the Texas Department of Public Safety to fund a surge at the border with additional personnel at $1.3 milion per week.

DPS did a similar surge last year called “Operation Strong Safety”, which former State Rep. Aaron Pena (R-McAllen) says created a public out-cry among many residents in his area.

Last year DPS conducted Operation Strong Safety and achieved astounding results. Crime rates related to drugs, cartels, transnational gangs, and illegal border activity plummeted because of the resources we allocated to stop illegal entry at the border. It’s time to make this type of presence on the border permanent.”

And State Rep. Debbie Riddle (R-Tomball) agrees.

Securing the border is absolutely critical, and never before have we ever had so many people boldly coming across,” says Riddle. “They cross the border, sit down and just wait for border patrol to pick them up.”

The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol says it has apprehended more illegal immigrants in the Rio Grande Valley in the first eight months of the current federal fiscal year (over 160,000) than it did for all of fiscal year 2013 (154,453).

In May 2014 alone, USCBP reported apprehending more than 1,100 illegal immigrants per day in the Rio Grande Valley. This year, like last year, more than half of the individuals apprehended at the Texas-Mexico border by USCBP are from countries other than Mexico. Additionally, 34,000 unaccompanied migrant children have been apprehended in Texas so far this year, with estimates that number will reach 90,000 by the end of the fiscal year.

Minutemen plan return to border, as senator urges president to act!
June 17, 2014 by Dean James

NEW YORK – Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., says there’s one reason for the flood of illegal aliens, especially children, sweeping over Texas, Arizona and other parts of the American southwest: “What we have now is a lawless border.” And he said there’s one person responsible: Barack Obama.

“President Obama’s executive orders and promises have provided a beacon for more illegal immigrants to get to the United States,” he told WND. “The president bears the brunt of the blame of the current humanitarian crisis of border crossings by thousands of unaccompanied children.”

As WND reported last week, Paul, following a controversial teleconference with the press hosted by the anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, issued a statement that while he favors immigration reform legislation, he considers securing the border to be a first requirement.

“The president needs to secure the border now and stop making statements that have provided motivation for people to send their unaccompanied children to the United States,” he wrote


Minutemen to the border
William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC, has issued a call for Minutemen to gather on the southern border on July 4, in what Gheen is calling “Operation American Shield.”

On the home page of the ALIPAC website, Gheen notes, “Our goal is to force the national media to report on this new crisis being orchestrated by politicians inside of America. We are also going to demand that the governors of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California order their state national guards to the border to block all illegal entries immediately.”

Gheen stressed to WND his Operation American Shield will be modeled after the type of peaceful Minuteman presence on the border successfully staged by ALIPAC and separately by Jim Gilchrist’s Minuteman Project during the Bush administration.

When the Minuteman Project went to the U.S.-Mexico Border in 2005, it was proven that citizen volunteers could secure sections of the border from illegal traffic,” Gheen stressed.

“Furthermore, illegal crossings in all sections of the border slowed and stopped in reaction to the presence of civilian watchdog groups. In Washington, D.C., politicians were forced to focus more attention on border security instead of trying to pass immigration reform amnesty that would permanently destroy America’s borders.”

White House's Valerie Jarrett dines with Rupert Murdoch to plot immigration strategy
By Susan Crabtree  | June 20, 2014 | 11:06 am

President Obama's longtime senior adviser Valerie Jarrett confessed to breaking bread this week with conservative media titan Rupert Murdoch, a new White House frenemy of sorts on immigration reform.
The two dined at the posh Blue Duck Tavern on Tuesday night in Washington's Foggy Bottom, and Jarrett described the evening as “very enjoyable.”

“He is an immigrant himself and he understands from a business perspective how important immigration reform would be to our economy,” she said. “... Sometimes decisions are tough but it's time for Congress to step up and act now — and that's something he said privately to me, and I was heartened to see him express it publicly.”

The next morning, Wall Street Journal readers awoke to an editorial by Murdoch, the paper's owner, calling on Congress to take action and pass comprehensive immigration reform and stressing its benefits to the business community and the economy.

Jarrett followed her private dinner with Murdoch with a breakfast the next day with the Business Roundtable, whose members were in town to press the case for immigration reform on Capitol Hill.

She said Republicans shouldn't be spooked by former Majority Leader Eric Cantor's stunning primary defeat, which Washington quickly attributed to his support for a middle-ground approach to some aspects of immigration reform.

“Having heard from someone like a Rupert Murdoch [on the issue],” Republicans shouldn't feel scared of it, she said.

Boehner: Call out National Guard for border
By Stephen Dinan

House Speaker John A. Boehner on Friday called on President Obama to deploy the National Guard to the border to help stem the surge of young illegal immigrant children that has overwhelmed the administration and distracted the Border Patrol from being able to guard against smugglers and other dangers.

“The National Guard is uniquely qualified to respond to such humanitarian crises. They are able to help deal with both the needs of these children and families as well as relieve the border patrol to focus on their primary duty of securing our border,” Mr. Boehner said in a letter to Mr. Obama

Homeland Security Cmte Chair: Send National Guard to Border
on Breitbart TV  24 Jun 2014, 12:57 PM PDT

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, called for the federal government to send the National Guard to the border, and stricter enforcement of the United States and Mexico’s borders to stop the flood of unaccompanied minors into the United States.

He stated, “We can send the national guard down to provide a support role so the Border Patrol can do their job.”  

McCaul also argued the government should deport the unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border, increase resources on the US-Mexico border, and work with Mexican officials to secure Mexico’s southern border.

It is the train of death, the migrant train, and the thousands of miles that it travels represent one of the most dangerous trips in the world. We climbed on the beast in Tenosique, Tabasco, near the border with the jungle region of Petén, in Guatemala: migrants, activists, journalists, and individuals in solidarity, who joined the Caravan Step by Step Toward Peace, an initiative of several organizations for the defense of migrants’ rights to give visibility to the violence they suffer in Mexico and demand a halt to the abuses

Federal Officials Reject Design of California Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Immigrants

LOS ANGELES — California’s plan to offer driver’s licenses to immigrants in the country illegally has hit a major snag, with the Obama administration informing state officials that the licenses they had designed violated federal law, California officials said Tuesday.

The problem:

The proposed design makes the special licenses for immigrants look too much like regular driver’s licenses.


Federal law passed after Sept. 11, 2001, requires any state licenses issued to unlawful residents to be easily distinguished from all forms of identification that could be used to board commercial airplanes.


We came up with this design, keeping in mind that immigrants continue to be very vulnerable, subject to discrimination, victims of crime and targets of scams,” said State Senator Ricardo Lara, chairman of the California Latino Legislative Caucus. “We don’t want to provide them with licenses that will open them up to further discrimination.”

Officials Hold Public Hearing On Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants
June 24, 2014 11:40 AM

LOS ANGELES ( — A public hearing on regulations involving the pending issuance of California driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants was held Tuesday in downtown Los Angeles.

KNX 1070′s Margaret Carrero reports the hearing is one of two events announced by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to receive public comments related to the implementation of Assembly Bill 60, the state law that directs DMV to issue driver licenses to undocumented California residents.

AB 60 requires the department to issue an original driver license to an applicant who is unable to submit satisfactory proof of legal presence in the United States. Driver license applicants under AB 60 must meet all other qualifications and must provide satisfactory proof of identity and California residency, according to DMV officials.
About 1.5 million [really more like 3-5 million]  unauthorized immigrants statewide will be eligible to become licensed and insured when the law comes into effect on January 1, 2015.
Among the proposals being considered includes allowing birth certificates or a Mexican consular card as a sole means of proving identity, according to the Orange County Register
After the two public hearings, consideration of the public comment and any necessary revisions, DMV will deliver the proposed final regulations for review and approval.

Of course the reason it's "the children" coming in droves is that they are the very people that are not easily sent back ,,, as we have seen , the "laws" have been written to safely care for them  until they would be return to there parents ... in a normal world ,,, but when you are dealing with extremists, children are just another pawn in the game ...

So, When is America going to set up refugee camps [ FEMA camps ] for the Central Americans?  ( which they already have in mothballs all over )

This is funny, Je Johnson won't say how many have already arrived or what they'll do to stop the invasion ... then heads out to the border to do nothing ,,,

Oh soon there will be another executive order from little g-god Obama declaring a new form of dream amnesty,,,
[Watch] Obnoxious Arrogance, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson in Congressional Testimony
Posted on 24 June, 2014 by Rick Wells

   Hearings into the child invasion at the southern border brought a glimpse into the true nature of the Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson. His façade of a reasonable and thoughtful albeit obstructionist and subversive individual was abandoned in this exchange with Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL).

The question of whether these are exigent circumstances was asked by Rep Rogers in regards to the current escalation in onslaught of illegal alien children being experiences at the border. Exigent circumstances are defined as “Those circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to believe that prompt action was necessary to prevent physical harm to the officers or other persons, the destruction of relevant evidence, the escape of a suspect, or some other consequence improperly frustrating legitimate law enforcement efforts.”

Johnson said he felt that these were exigent circumstances. Rogers questioned him as to whether Obama should issue an executive order in view of the exigent circumstances to deal with the crisis.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson visits Nogales facility with Gov. Jan Brewer
Posted: Jun 25, 2014 5:54 AM PDT

NOGALES, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson took about an hour to tour the Nogales Processing Center where about 900 Central American children are being held.

Both said they talked to some of the children about their long and dangerous journey.

Brewer said some told her it took two weeks and a thousand miles.

Some came by train, others were transported by paid coyotes.

"It's very difficult to look into their eyes and see all the hurt and trauma they've been through," she says. "As a mother it breaks my heart to see them in the condition they're in."

The Governor placed the blame on the children's parents who put them on a "dangerous journey" and the administration for failure to "secure the border."

Secretary Johnson reiterated his call for the parents not to send their children into harms way.

 "There is no permiso, there is no free pass," he said.

The families have been under the misguided perception that once they landed on United State soil they would be free, he said.

He told reporters the children are subject to deportation but that the US government is also "in discussions right now with the government's of Central America to stem the tide."

He says there will be an end to this but could not predict when.

Governor Brewer told the media the College Place on Drachman and Oracle is being readied for 280 of the children.
The hope is that Secretary Johnson will answer more questions about what his plan of action will be for Arizona.  In a statement released yesterday he outlined the 14 steps his department is doing in response to the problem.  

One is being in contact with senior government officials from Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico to address shared border security interest and the underlying conditions in Central America that are promoting the large number of children leaving.  
Another solution under consideration is to set up a facility in New Mexico to temporarily house adults who come to the U.S. with their children.

| - -- -
An exigent circumstance, in the criminal procedure law of the United States, allows law enforcement, under certain circumstances, to enter a structure without a search warrant or, if they have a "knock and announce" warrant, without knocking and waiting for refusal. It must be a situation where people are in imminent danger, evidence faces imminent destruction, or a suspect's imminent escape.


In the criminal procedure context, exigent circumstance means the following:

An emergency situation requiring swift action to prevent imminent danger to life or serious damage to property, or to forestall the imminent escape of a suspect, or destruction of evidence. There is no ready litmus test for determining whether such circumstances exist, and in each case the extraordinary situation must be measured by the facts known by officials

It occurred to me just now what -- from a legislative (as opposed to rhetorical) point of view -- might perhaps be the best public relations approach to this issue.

Why not pressure Congress to enact a bill that simply applies to the nations bordering the U.S. the same immigration controls they already apply to us?

You could call it the...

Petraeus: NAFTA Has Replaced America
Published on Jun 20, 2014

Petraeus spoke at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty and took the opportunity to dance of the grave of a sovereign America, declaring it has been replaced with a North American Union and saying that's a good thing ...
Friday, 27 June 2014 12:30  
“After America Comes North America,” Gen. Petraeus [Bilderberger] Boasts

Former general and CIA chief David Petraeus (shown), a key figure in the globalist Council on Foreign Relations and the shadowy Bilderberg network, boasted at a recent conference that the United States of America is set to be merged into the continental regime being erected under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Speaking at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty last week in London, the ex-commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U.S. independence — and by extension, the demise of the Constitution.  

After America comes North America,” Petraeus said confidently in answering the question about what comes after the United States, the theme of the panel discussion. “Are we on the threshold of the North American decade, question mark? I threw that away — threw away the question mark — and boldly proclaimed the coming North American decade, says the title now.”

He also boasted about how the three economies have been put “together” over the last 20 years as part of the “implementation” of the North American Free Trade Act.

The Roman Empire and its citizens
Rights given:

* The right to vote in the Republic.
 * The right to make legal contracts.
 * The right to have a lawful marriage.
 * Citizens couldn´t be submited to torture.
 * The right to have a trial (to appear before a proper court and to defend oneself).
 * A Roman citizen couldn't be sentenced to death unless he was found guilty of treason. If acused of treason, a Roman citizen had the right to be tried in Rome.
 * Even if sentenced to death, no Roman citizen could be sentenced to die at the cross. (Despite being found guilty of the same crime St. Paul, was beheaded. St. Peter on the other hand, not being a Roman citizen, was crucified.).
 * Roman citizenship was required in order to join the Roman legions, but this was sometimes ignored.

The granting of citizenship to the conquered and the allies was the final step of Romanization which was one of the most effective political tools and (at that point in history) original political ideas (perhaps one of the most important reasons for the success of Rome).

* The idea was to assimilate, to turn a defeated and potentially rebelious enemy (or his sons) into a Roman citizen. Instead having to wait for the unavoidable revolt of a conquered people (a tribe or a city-state) like Sparta and the conquered Helots, Rome made the "known" (conquered) world roman.

* The Social War (in which the Italian allies revolted against Rome) only ended gradually, as Rome granted citizenship to all Italian freemen (with the exception of Gallia Cisalpina)

* After 212 AD, all freemen in the Empire were granted citizenship by a imperial edict (the Constitutio Antoniniana) of Emperor Caracalla.
The Year of the Four Emperors was a year in the history of the Roman Empire, AD 69, in which four emperors ruled in succession; Galba, Otho, Vitellius, and Vespasian.
The suicide of emperor Nero, in 68, was followed by a brief period of civil war,

Status of Mexican Trucks in the United States: Frequently Asked Questions
John Frittelli
Specialist in Transportation Policy
January 3, 2014


In the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which took effect in January 1994, the
United States and Mexico agreed to allow each other’s trucks to carry goods across the border to
make deliveries anywhere inside their respective countries. This provision was controversial in
the United States, and a trial program begun in September 2007 by the George W. Bush
Administration was defunded by Congress in March 2009. Mexico imposed tariffs on certain U.S.
goods in response to the program’s termination, as permitted by NAFTA. After bilateral
negotiations, the Obama Administration announced a new pilot program to allow long-haul
Mexican trucks into the United States in April 2011.1 The first Mexican truck with long-haul
operating authority crossed the border in October 2011.
This report answers frequently asked questions about the pilot program permitting Mexican
trucks into the United States.

How Many Mexican Trucks Are Participating in the Pilot Program?

As of December 2013, there were 14 Mexico-domiciled carriers with active long-haul operating
authority in the pilot program; 9 of these had been granted permanent operating authority, and 5
had provisional operating authority, although just 2 Mexican carriers accounted for most of the
border crossing activity.2 Two additional carriers were in the process of applying for long-haul
operating authority.3 The 14 approved carriers have used about 45 trucks to make nearly 10,000
border crossings since October 2011.

To put this number in context, on average about 14,000 trucks cross the border from Mexico each day.4

Most (83%) of the U.S. mileage by Mexican trucks in the long-haul pilot has been in the four
U.S. border states, and overwhelmingly in just Texas and California
. Only 17% of the mileage has
been beyond the border states.5 Florida, Louisiana, and Arkansas are the three non-border states
where Mexican trucks have accumulated the most mileage.

Buses With Migrant Families Rerouted From Murrieta, California Protest
  Posted:  07/01/2014 11:32 pm EDT

families were rerouted Tuesday to a facility in San Diego after American flag-waving protesters blocked the group from reaching a suburban processing center.

The standoff in Murrieta came after Mayor Alan Long urged residents to complain to elected officials about the plan to transfer the Central American migrants to California to ease overcrowding of facilities along the Texas-Mexico border.

Many protesters held U.S. flags, while others held signs reading "stop illegal immigration," and "illegals out!"

"We can't start taking care of others if we can't take care of our own," protester Nancy Greyson, 60, of Murrieta, told the Desert Sun newspaper.

Many of the immigrants were detained while fleeing violence and extortion from gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.


After the buses were blocked, federal authorities rerouted the vehicles to a freeway and then to a customs and border facility in San Diego within view of the Mexico border.

The three buses were trailed by a half-dozen news crews during the two-hour trip. People near the San Diego facility were surprised by the caravan.

Protesters Block First Wave Of Detained Immigrants In Murrieta

July 1, 2014 11:19 PM

MURRIETA ( — Dozens of protesters blocked the road Tuesday so buses full of undocumented immigrants couldn’t make their way to a U.S. Border Patrol Station in Murrieta.

Approximately 140 people were flown into San Diego from Texas at 11 a.m. and bused to Murrieta around 2:20 p.m., with similar groups expected to arrive every three days.

The situation was tense as protesters unleashed their fury over immigration, with one man spitting into the face of a man who opposed him.

“They have come so far, they’ve worked harder than you’ve ever worked, they’ve worked harder than you’ve ever worked in your whole life!” one woman screamed.

Another woman told CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Tom Wait: “We have enough issues here: we have our own veterans, we have homeless mothers, we have a lot of people living on the streets of L.A. We need to take care of these people first.”

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement buses, impeded by protesters, eventually left Murrieta and headed south to a detention facility in San Ysidro.

The immigrants are being redirected to California because Texas border officials are overwhelmed by a recent surge in illegal border crossings.

Murrieta was one of the cities chosen to help process the immigrants because it has a federal border protection facility.

Murrieta held a town hall meeting Monday where Mayor Alan Long assured concerned residents that the immigrants have no criminal backgrounds and that health screenings will be done. Some of them will likely be detained and could be outfitted with GPS tethers, CBS2′s Tom Wait learned.

Still, Long urged residents in the suburb of 107,000 people some 60 miles north of San Diego to call their elected officials and voice opposition to the plan.

“What we’ve been told is that most of these immigrants are families. These are mothers and young children, or fathers and young children,” Long said. “What will happen is once they’re processed by the border patrol they’ll be released to ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] agents who make sure they get to their destination or transportation hubs.”

The fight over the crisis continues in Washington, D.C., where President Barack Obama is looking at ways to secure the border by executive action.

He says he can no longer wait for congressional immigration reform, which has outraged Republican lawmakers as they contend the president is overstepping his authority.

Tuberculosis outbreak at Sacramento high school

 The Associated Press
 Published: Wednesday, Jul. 2, 2014 - 6:27 am
 Last Modified: Wednesday, Jul. 2, 2014 - 12:53 pm

 SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A California high school is at the center of a tuberculosis outbreak linked to an infectious student who tested positive for active TB in February, county health officials said Wednesday.

 Four more students at Grant Union High School in Sacramento have contracted active TB. Three related tuberculosis cases are considered an outbreak, Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Laura McCasland said.
Four relatives and friends of the student who initially tested positive have also contracted active TB — bringing the total to nine known cases.

 Symptoms of active TB can include a persistent cough and fever. Active TB is contagious if it's in the lungs and accompanied by a cough, said Olivia Kasirye, the county's public health officer.

 The four additional students — two of whom have TB in their lymph nodes — are not infectious, she said.
Kasirye said such an outbreak was not uncommon. The county sees about 90 active TB cases a year, though most of those are adults. She noted that no additional people have been found to be contagious.
 "In a way, they are wrapping this up," McCasland said.
The four additional students are receiving treatment.

 In all, a little more than 450 students and staff have been tested. They were considered at high risk because they used the same classrooms or adjacent classrooms as the student who was infectious, health officials said.

 Of those, 116 have tested positive for TB, though the vast majority have been confirmed to be latent TB, which is dormant and doesn't produce symptoms. An additional thirty of the students in that group still need further testing to determine whether they have active TB, McCasland said.

[ Congressman is denied access to illegal alien detainment facility ...  We live in America - Right? ]
‘What are they trying to hide?’: GOP member denied entry to immigrant detainee facility

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) said Wednesday that he was prevented from entering an immigration detainee facility by the Department of Health and Human Services, which runs the facility.

Bridenstine said he tried to enter the building at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma on Tuesday, but was told by HHS officials that he would have to make an appointment. The earliest he could visit was July 21.

“What are they trying to hide?” he asked. “Do they not want the children to speak with members of Congress? As a Navy pilot, I have been involved in operations countering illicit human trafficking. I would like to know to whom these children are being released.”

Bridenstine added that senior HHS officials would not take his call, and that he was told to send an email instead.

“There is no excuse for denying a federal representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held,” he said. “Any member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks.”

Under current law, unaccompanied immigrant children are required to be placed in the custody of HHS, until they can be released to a relative or guardian pending a deportation court hearing.

Current law also prohibits border officials from immediately deporting children when they come from countries that don’t border the United States.

President Barack Obama has asked Congress to consider legislation to change that law, in an effort to speed up the process of deporting these children.

Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California--a town that neighbors Murrieta--told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that "it's going to get ugly."

Oliver said, "The feds are pissed that they haven't been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday--they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back."

John Henry, a Murrieta resident since 1991, was told the same thing by local officers.

"We're being told that federal Marshals or ICE will be here in the next few days and that they are bringing riot gear," Henry said. "They're apparently going to be blocking off the street with concrete blockades so that no vehicles can get through. The River County Sheriff's Department showed up last night and brought a huge watch tower that shoots up into the air 35 feet."

Remember When Gov Jerry Brown Fought to Keep Vietnamese Refugees From Coming to California
July 2, 2014 — Cristy Li

Flashback: Remember in 1975 when Liberal Democrat Gov Jerry Brown fought to keep out South Vietnamese refugees from coming to California during his first time as Governor.

Why the double standard by Liberals today?
Gov. Jerry Brown 1975: Don't 'Dump Vietnamese' Refugees on California

Democratic Governor Jerry Brown once fought to keep out South Vietnamese refugees from being delivered to his state during his first stint as governor of California in the 1970’s. Although he remains silent on the crisis that is happening on the southern border of his state, Brown’s position via legislation previously signed regarding illegal immigrants from Mexico Central America and South America is more favorable than the cool response he gave to the Vietnamese refugees who had escaped the tyrannical Viet Cong.

"The new governor of California, Jerry Brown, was very concerned about refugees settling in his state. Brown even attempted to prevent planes carrying refugees from landing at Travis Air Force Base near Sacramento. . . . The secretary of health and welfare, Mario Obledo, felt that this addition of a large minority group would be unwelcome in California. And he said that they already had a large population of Hispanics, Filipinos, blacks, and other minorities."

In fact, then Senator Joe Biden complained about the Ford administration’s move to bring Vietnamese refugees to the U.S., saying the White House “had not informed Congress adequately about the number of refugees." Liberal presidential icon George McGovern told Newsweek, “I think the Vietnamese are better off in Vietnam.”

Presently, Governor Brown approved a measure allowing non-citizens to get driver’s licenses in California. He also signed a law titled the Trust Act, which bars law enforcement from detaining a foreign national they arrest for a period of time, so that immigration officials can pick up the person(s) charged and start deportation proceedings. Additionally, another law Brown signed allows illegal immigrants to get a law license and practice law in the state and included measures that would restrict who could charge illegal immigrants for aiding them with legal work, Fox News Latino reported in October of 2013.

“While Washington waffles on immigration, California’s forging ahead,” Brown said, according to published reports. “I’m not waiting.”

Texas Gov. Rick Perry repeated an accusation that undocumented children coming to the U.S. from Latin American countries might be a result of an “ulterior motive” by President Obama.

“I have to believe that when you don’t respond in any way that you are either inept or you have some ulterior motive of which you are functioning from,” Perry said during an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I don’t believe he particularly cares whether or not the border of the United States is secure,” Perry said when he was asked by host Martha Raddatz if he stood by comments made in a June 17 interview with “Fox and Friends.”

“This president, I will suggest, is totally and absolutely either inept or making some decisions that are not in the best interests of American citizens,” Perry said during that interview with Fox News.

Perry also suggested that non-Mexicans crossing the U.S.-Mexican border are coming from Middle Eastern countries such as Syria.

[ So if we don't want them on our doorstep ie  "IMPORTING POVERTY" - what's our country doing to help these latin American countries ? Is this a "success" story ? Geez... ]
USAID has identified two significant challenges to successful development in Guatemala:

historic inequality that remains ingrained in Guatemalan society,
and a weak government that lacks the capacity to address insecurity and poverty.

Each of these driving forces contributes to increased crime, high levels of poverty, and some of the lowest levels of health and education quality in Latin America. Guatemalans lack protection against organized crime, are vulnerable to natural disasters, and struggle to feed and educate their children.

Based on decades of experience, USAID's strategy to enhance development outcomes includes:
1) Programs in sectors where USAID has a comparative advantage among donor organizations, and where clear opportunities for advancement exist, and
2) Strong support to improve food security in priority areas in the Western Highlands with extremely high poverty and child chronic malnutrition levels, and where potential for economic development is strong. Agency programs also focus on health, education, nutrition, and local governance in the target municipalities.

USAID Guatemala Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) [PDF]

The United States Government (USG) has set out an ambitious agenda to improve the delivery and effectiveness of foreign assistance. This agenda reflects the USG commitment to international aid effectiveness principles as articulated in the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the Accra Agenda for Action and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).2

The USG agenda is set out in three complementary documents:

1) the U.S. Global Development Policy3 enumerates core objectives, the operational model, and the modern architecture for all USG foreign assistance; 2) the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR)4 complements the U.S. Global Development Policy by articulating specific reforms designed to improve USG foreign assistance; and
3) the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Forward Agenda5 sets out further reforms to USAID-specific policies, procedures, and processes which are necessary to improve foreign assistance alignment, coordination and responsiveness to host-country need.

The Guatemala Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) represents an important step to strengthen USG foreign assistance to Guatemala. The CDCS is based on the principles of country leadership, whole-of-government USG strategies, and international donor coordination. The five-year plan specifically supports the first pillar of the U.S. Global Development Policy: sustainable development outcomes that place a premium on broad-based economic growth, human development, democratic governance, game-changing innovations, and sustainable systems for meeting human needs.

E. Assessment of Risks

USAID Guatemala recognizes that risk is inherent in international development and that the success of the CDCS will necessarily be affected by those risks. Key risks are identified below.

Transnational crime and related violence and corruption continue to increase: Violence, organized crime, endemic corruption and extreme levels of poverty combine to form a significant threat to Guatemala‘s stability.

Illicit trafficking of people, narcotics, arms and contraband, as well as organized crime and criminal gangs have spread southward from Mexico into Guatemala, bringing with them increased violence, corruption and criminal activity.

Guatemala now has one of the highest murder rates in the world (41 per 100,000 people in 2010).

Violent youth gangs have proliferated in recent years and Guatemala has become a transit country for drug traffickers trying to smuggle drugs from South America into the United States.

Violence is exacerbated by the absence or weakness of the police force, as well as by impunity.

Similarly, organized crime continues to make inroads into political processes and to infiltrate the justice system. The USG will continue to support a coordinated response to these threats through CARSI and related projects.

[ Oh how 'bout "El Salvador ? ]

El Salvador is one of four countries worldwide participating in President Barack Obama's Partnership for Growth (PFG) initiative, a partnership between the United States and a select group of countries to accelerate and sustain broad-based economic growth.  USAID programs in El Salvador are aligned with, and contribute to, achieving the PFG goal to expand broad-based economic growth in a more secure El Salvador.

Security activities help strengthen the justice system and government accountability, reduce community crime and violence, and improve education for secondary students and out-of-school youth.  Economic assistance helps create a better business environment and to increase the productivity and competitiveness of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in export markets.

Through its Central American Regional Program, USAID supports key foreign assistance objectives that have a regional or global impact, including citizen security, trade, climate change, food security, and HIV/AIDS prevention.


| - - - - -

Then there's Honduras:

Citizen Security

Honduras, one of the most violent nations in the world, serves as a key transit point for drug trafficking and has more gang members than all other Central American countries combined.

In response to security challenges in Honduras and across the region, the U.S. and the governments of Central America have joined together to improve citizen security and rule of law, through the Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI). USAID’s social prevention and rule of law programs help address the serious citizen security threat from narco-trafficking and gang violence. USAID has committed more than $130 million to security efforts over the last five years to work with municipalities, community police, at risk youth, and criminal courts.

Democracy and Governance

Having recently emerged from its worst political crisis in 25 years, Honduran democracy and governance are very weak and a large number of citizens lack confidence in their institutions. USAID strengthens democratic institutions, rule of law, and citizen participation in local and national government.  Programs broaden the participation of traditionally marginalized groups and reinforce support for democracy and civilian rule.

Economic Growth

More than 60 percent of Hondurans are highly vulnerable to food insecurity, and the country is one of the most vulnerable in the world to natural disasters and climate change. USAID’s Feed the Future program increases the incomes of poor rural households by linking small farmers to market opportunities.


Education in Honduras is characterized by high dropout and repetition rates, low achievement scores, and insufficient alternative education opportunities. Through the Education for All-Fast Track Initiative, USAID emphasizes learning opportunities for at-risk youth, contributes to quality improvements in the formal education system, and strengthens education committees at the local level.


Although Honduras has made great gains in improving the health of the population in recent years, fertility, maternal and infant mortality, and malnutrition rates remain high, especially in rural areas. In addition, HIV disproportionately affects high-risk groups with prevalence rates ranging from 4 to 10 percent. USAID’s health program works with the Honduran Government and local organizations to address the wide-ranging needs of its people.

President of Guatemala recognizes humanitarian vision of Peña Nieto
July 7, 2014
The president of Guatemala, Otto Perez Molina, noted humanitarian and development of its Mexican counterpart, Enrique Peña Nieto vision, to improve the treatment of migrants and relations between neighboring nations.


Catazajá, Chis -. President of Guatemala, Otto Perez Molina, noted humanitarian and development of its Mexican counterpart, Enrique Peña Nieto vision, to improve the treatment of migrants and relations between neighboring nations.

Participating in commissioning up South Border in this border city, added showing of these actions is the regional and frontier worker card that will allow Guatemalans enter for three days, without a passport or visa, the 81 border municipalities of Chiapas, Campeche and Quintana Roo. stressed that this is the first step to advance and improve the situation of migrant workers, since among other benefits allows the legal right to employment.

acknowledged the work of the Mexican president on immigration and the Program South Border is a "vision that the President-Peña, and is an example for other states, instead of obstacles, there is a view of facilitating development with a humanitarian vision and brotherly peoples" .

"It is a clear demonstration, with actions that President Enrique Peña Nieto is worried about his country but has a concern that goes beyond and extending to the countries of Central America and, in this case, to Guatemala," he added .

In his opinion this program is relevant to Mexico and throughout Central America;

"Because it perceives a secure and prosperous, where in the context of a culture of legality border, we can coexist with tradition and history, allowing greater flexibility in the exchange of tourism and trade, strengthening relations of friendship and cooperation between two . fraternal peoples "

thanked the implementation of the regional visitor immigration card, which will allow Guatemalans to visit the whole region; besides that frontier worker card will facilitate access to all Guatemalans to Mexico without Mexican passport without visa.

"This will allow us to Guatemalans remain for a period of three days in each income municipalities located in 81 Mexican states he border of Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche and Quintana Roo, "he said.

Pérez Molina also said the border security starts for the safety of border crossings and announced that soon the entire border infrastructure Guatemala renewed, replicating the design which already exists in the Mexican territory.

Additionally there will be two new formal crossings for a total of 10 border crossings, which will further facilitate binational exchange. "This infrastructure, in which we will be just the model an infrastructure that can later be developing also Guatemalans. "

Guatemalan president acknowledged that the emergence of the humanitarian crisis caused by migration, in particular children and adolescents unaccompanied strongly impacts the peoples of the region. warned that this issue can not be addressed in isolation.

"Our common border represents a vulnerable point and is used by organized criminal groups smuggling and trafficking of persons to perform their operations."
Otto Fernando Pérez Molina (born 1 December 1950)[1] is a Guatemalan politician and retired military officer who has been President of Guatemala since January 14, 2012. Standing as the Patriotic Party (Partido Patriota) candidate, he lost the 2007 presidential election but prevailed in the 2011 presidential election.[2] During the 1990s, before entering politics, he served as Director of Military Intelligence, Presidential Chief of Staff under President Ramiro de Leon Carpio, and as chief representative of the military for the Guatemalan Peace Accords.[3] During his presidency, amongst his activities was a controversial call for the legalization of drugs.[4]


Pérez was finally elected in the November 2011 presidential election with 54% of the vote.[11] Pérez is the first former military official to be elected to the presidency since Guatemala's return to democratic elections in 1986.

He proposed the legalisation of drugs when he first became president while attending the United Nations,[12] as he believes that the War on Drugs has been conclusively proved a failure, and contributes to criminality and drain on resources.[4]

 The plan was presented by the Mexican head of state during a ceremony held Monday in the town of Catazaja in Chiapas (south), accompanied by his Guatemalan counterpart, Otto Pérez Molina, and members of both cabinets.

“I have given instructions to the security cabinet to increase the effectiveness of measures against criminal groups that have attacked and systematically hurt the migrant population and the inhabitants of the region,” said Peña Nieto.

Thus, the authorities focus their intelligence actions to strengthen joint efforts in the areas of transit migrants to dismantle criminal gangs that exploit the vulnerability of many Central Americans who try to reach the United States.

16 year Study concludes NAFTA is a complete failure.  (

NAFTA’s 20-Year Legacy and the Fate of the Trans-Pacific Partnership - February 2014

a study released Wednesday by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
[ ]  finds that Mexico has fared poorly under the accord.

“After 15 years, it seems clear that Nafta’s promise of broad-based dynamic growth did not come true in Mexico,” write the study’s authors, Eduardo Zepeda of the Carnegie Endowment and Timothy A. Wise and Kevin P. Gallagher of the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts.

... Literally millions of well paid jobs have been created erased  in the three countries - all in all, an ongoing success story.

[ If it was such a success , why are they leaving the Mexican hell hole?  20 million unemployed americans is a success? Lies and more lies,,, ]  

[ What about CAFTA-DR? Surely that help create this success story too!! ]
CAFTA-DR (Dominican Republic-Central America FTA)

On August 5, 2004, the United States signed the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) with five Central American countries (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua) and the Dominican Republic.

The CAFTA-DR is the first free trade agreement between the United States and a group of smaller developing economies. This agreement is creating new economic opportunities by eliminating tariffs, opening markets, reducing barriers to services, and promoting transparency. It is facilitating trade and investment among the seven countries and furthering regional integration.

Central America and the Dominican Republic represent the third largest U.S. export market in Latin America, behind Mexico and Brazil. U.S. exports to the CAFTA-DR countries were valued at $19.5 billion in 2009. Combined total two-way trade in 2009 between the United States and Central America and the Dominican Republic was $37.9 billion.

The agreement entered into force for the United States and El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua during 2006, for the Dominican Republic on March 1, 2007, and for Costa Rica on January 1, 2009. With the addition of Costa Rica, the CAFTA-DR is in force for all seven countries that signed the agreement.

On August 15, 2008, the CAFTA-DR Parties implemented important changes to the agreement’s textiles provisions, including changing the rules of origin to ensure that pocket fabric in apparel is sourced from the United States or another CAFTA-DR Party. The Parties also implemented a reciprocal textile input sourcing rule with Mexico. Under this rule, Mexico will provide duty-free treatment on certain apparel goods produced in a Central American country or the Dominican Republic with U.S. input, and the United States will provide reciprocal duty-free treatment under the CAFTA-DR on certain apparel goods produced in a Central American country or the Dominican Republic with Mexican input. These changes will further strengthen and integrate regional textile and apparel manufacturing and create new economic opportunities in the United States and the region.

CAFTA/DR Trade Facts:

CAFTA/DR countries combined would currently be our 12th largest goods trading partner with $38.8 billion in total (two way) goods trade during 2009. (Note: CAFTA/DR countries would have been the 8th largest if EU countries were grouped together as one entity, as well as NAFTA countries). Exports totaled $20.0 billion; Imports totaled $18.8 billion; The U.S. goods trade surplus with CAFTA/DR was $1.2 billion in 2009

MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.

 ...  Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.”

New 'Regional Visitor Card' grants permission to travel to Rio Grande
Published: 14 hours ago

Though largely unreported in the U.S. mainstream media, the two nations agreed on July 7, in a presidential-level meeting in Mexico,  to make it legal and safe for Central American immigrants, including unaccompanied minors, to cross Mexico’s border with Guatemala and transit Mexico  en route to the U.S. border at the Rio Grande.

The agreement apparently does not recognize that the result of such trips – entry into the United States – remains illegal.

But to facilitate the program, the Mexican government announced plans to issue a new “Regional Visitor Card” that will provide documentation for the Central Americans to remain in Mexico as long as it takes to get to the United States.

Under the auspices of a “Southern Border Program,” Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan President Otto Pérez, in a meeting in Mexico, agreed to take five concrete steps designed to “protect and safeguard the human rights of migrants who enter and transit Mexico, so as to order international routes of passage [in and through Mexico] to increase and develop the security of the region.”

Honduras wants 'mini-Marshall plan' for U.S. aid on migrants
By Gustavo Palencia

TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - Honduran officials on Wednesday called for U.S. aid to Central America to reduce violence that has fueled a surge of child migration to the United States, with the foreign minister calling for a "mini-Marshall plan" to attack the broader underlying problems.

Honduran President Juan Hernandez said Washington should help Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras fight gangs with a plan similar to U.S. anti-drug programs in Colombia and Mexico, as well as funds to lift growth in the impoverished region.

"One has to recognize that our countries can't do it alone," he said at a conference about the unaccompanied minors fleeing for the United States. "We need help from the United States, from Mexico, because this is everyone's problem."

Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero told the conference that efforts to step up security at the U.S. border were not working and that U.S. aid would be better spent in Central America

Thousands of Central American migrants have been streaming into the United States through Mexico, and those caught are being held in overcrowded detention facilities.

The United States deported a planeload of women and children to Honduras on Monday. The country's first lady, Ana Garcia de Hernandez, said another U.S. charter flight containing 80 families would arrive in San Pedro Sula on Friday.

White flags mysteriously replace American flags on top of Brooklyn Bridge
Published July 22, 2014


New York City police Tuesday were investigating how the two American flags that historically sit on top of the Brooklyn Bridge's 273-foot towers were stolen and replaced with two white flags, which are known universally to symbolize surrender.

The white flags were removed by noon, but police said they are investigating the issue, which may indicate a serious security breach on one of the city's most secured landmarks.

One of the white flags, viewed via video, appeared to have faint traces of stars and stripes on it. Police said it was not clear what time they were placed there - or by whom, but told Fox News that there is a chance the flags were put in place legally.

Boehner: House GOP Introduces $659 Million Border Bill
Alex Rogers @arogDC
  12:30 PM ET
The bill is well short of the $3.7 Billion President Obama requested

House Republicans introduced a $659 million bill to address the surge of migrant children coming over the southern U.S. border Tuesday, well short of the $2.7 billion proposal the Senate plans on voting on later this week.

In another sign that there’s little chance of finding a compromise before the workweek’s end and subsequent five-week recess, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested that if the House passed its bill, as House Speaker John Boehner expects, the chambers could discuss a conference meeting on the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform bill passed last  year. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the number-two Democrat in the chamber, flat-out opposed the House bill.

“Certainly it won’t have enough money to get the job done, but a lot depends on the substantive language,” said Durbin, who added that he would not support a House provision that would change the due process of migrant children from noncontiguous countries like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, where many of the unaccompanied minors hail...


The bill would cover the costs through the end of September.

The bill would be offset, Rogers announced, primarily through a $405 million cut from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Other cuts to the State, Defense and Justice departments will bring the bill to be fully offset.

House passes two Republican measures in response to surge of child migrants

By Ed O'Keefe and Robert Costa August 1 2014 at 10:21 PM

House Republicans managed Friday to overcome deep divisions within the party and passed two measures to address the child-migrant surge at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The bills would provide emergency funding to deal with the crisis, speed the deportations of most border-crossers and rescind President Obama’s authority to decide whether to deport certain illegal immigrants.

The measures are unlikely to become law, as the White House, most Democrats and immigration advocates strongly oppose the proposals.

The votes held late Friday — a rare occurrence any time of the year on Capitol Hill — capped a week of turmoil in the GOP ranks prompted by fierce opposition from the party’s conservative members to doing anything that could be perceived as an endorsement of Obama’s current immigration policy. With conservatives threatening to withhold support, top leaders abruptly withdrew border security legislation Thursday afternoon and announced plans to leave Washington without acting. Infuriated, several GOP moderates confronted Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on the House floor, forcing them to recalibrate and cancel plans to begin the recess.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), one of those conservatives, described the retreat by Boehner as one of the highlights of her career, because the leadership was forced to mostly capitulate to the conservative demands.

“Leadership knew they couldn’t pass their bill,” Bachmann said, and as a result were forced to agree to revisions offered by tea party members, led by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a vocal opponent of Obama’s immigration policy who has been criticized by Democrats and immigration advocates for his harsh descriptions of migrants seeking to cross the border.

Behind Closed Doors, Obama Crafts Executive Actions

WASHINGTON — When President Obama announced in June that he planned to bypass congressional gridlock and overhaul the nation’s immigration system on his own, he did so in a most public way: a speech in the White House Rose Garden.

Since then, the process of drafting what will likely be the only significant immigration changes of his presidency — and his most consequential use of executive power — has been conducted almost entirely behind closed doors, where lobbyists and interest groups invited to the White House are making their case out of public view.

Mr. Obama’s increasingly expansive appetite for the use of unilateral action on issues including immigration, tax policy and gay rights has emboldened activists and businesses to flock to the administration with their policy wish lists. It also has opened the president, already facing charges of executive overreach, to criticism that he is presiding over opaque policy-making, with the potential to reward political backers at the expense of other interests, including some on the losing side who are threatening to sue.


White House officials say Mr. Obama has been inclusive as he looks to wield his authority, reaching out to an array of lawmakers, experts and business leaders for a wide range of perspectives to inform his plans for executive actions. Since the president first announced his intention to use his “pen and phone” to advance his agenda during his State of the Union address in January, White House officials have held weekly meetings to compile ideas from inside and outside the administration.


Administration officials have convened more than 20 so-called listening sessions this summer alone on executive options for revising immigration policy, a White House official said, declining to discuss the sessions in detail because the conversations were private.


The go-it-alone approach has left the administration — which claims to be the most transparent in United States history — essentially making policy from the White House, replacing congressional hearings and floor debates with closed meetings for invited constituencies. ​


When the president vowed in the Rose Garden in June to “fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own,” immigration activists were ready with their list of potential executive actions. They range from giving certain categories of undocumented immigrants temporary “parole in place” status to stay in the United States, to essentially legalizing millions more by expanding a 2012 directive issued by Mr. Obama that grants work permits and deportation deferments to young immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children.

The requests did not stop there. Cecilia Muñoz, Mr. Obama’s top immigration adviser and the domestic policy chief, has led meetings attended by White House political aides and lawyers to hear from interest groups, individual companies and business groups about what executive actions they believe the president should take on immigration.

Senator Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican and one of the staunchest opponents of the stalled immigration bill Mr. Obama advocated, criticized the process. “It is chilling to consider now that these groups, frustrated in their aims by our constitutional system of government, are plotting with the Obama administration to collect their spoils through executive fiat,” he said

The Feds Let Go of Dozens of Convicted Murder Illegal Immigrants, See Where They Are on This Map
By Ryan Lovelace
August 22, 2014 4:30 PM

The Center for Immigration Studies has used information provided to the office Senator Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) to map out the locations of where convicted killers were let go by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in 2013.

The killers were booked out in 24 states and were associated with 96 different cities, according to the CIS report. The following map shows with red dots the ZIP codes where they were released and with blue squares the ICE centers where they were booked out:

The state where the greatest number of illegal immigrants with homicide-related convictions were reportedly released was California. CIS says the city or town with the greatest concentration of convicted-killer illegal immigrants was Miami, followed by Los Angeles and the Bronx. See the full, interactive map here.
The 169 aliens with homicide-related convictions who were freed by ICE in 2013 were booked out of detention facilities in 24 different states, with the largest number in California, according to information provided to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). ICE records show that these convicted killers were associated with 96 different cities and towns across America. The city with the largest concentration was Miami, with seven convicted murderers freed by ICE, followed by Los Angeles with six.

Death by Gun Control - Democide
Q: How many Doomed Soldiers died at the hands of Polish and Soviet communist regimes in Poland?

A: While we are unable to provide an exact number of the Doomed Soldiers who had perished at the hands of the UB, SB, Informacja, KBW, NKVD, SMERSH and other repressive organs of Polish and Soviet communist regimes occupying Poland between 1944-1963,

it has been established that over 5,000 death sentences against individual soldiers of the Democratic Underground were carried out.

An estimated 21,000 others perished in communist jails and concentration camps.

At least 10,000 others died during direct combat engagements against communist forces.

Unaccounted for are thousands others who died at the hands of communists during pacification operations conducted by the so-called "Szwadrony Smierci" (Eng., "Death Squads") or agent-provocateur units created by and directed by the communist PPR, AL, GL, or communist secret services.

Thousands others died of "natural causes" after being released from the secret police torture houses, i.e. as a result of internal injuries suffered during interrogations. [Read more about torture methods here]

Additionally, at least 50,000 individuals were sent to the Soviet concentration camps, and an additional 250,000 were sentenced to lengthy imprisonment, or to forced labor in the coal mines and labor camps for their participation in, or complicity in the so-called "political crimes" against the state.

The Craft of Breaking A Man - Torture Methods Used by UB (Urzad Bezpieczenstwa, Bezpieka) Against Polish Underground Soldiers, And Democratic Opposition In Poland between 1944 And 1963 - An Introduction

The Mokotow Prison at 37 Rakowiecka Street in Warsaw, and its dreaded Departments "X", "XI", known as "The Palace of Miracles" (pol. "Pałac Cudów"), was among the most sinister and dreaded houses of detention, torture and executions in Poland.

Among hundreds of Polish patriots murdered there, were Cavalry Captain Witold Pilecki, Col. Łukasz Ciepliński , General Emil Fieldorf "Nil", Major Zygmunt Szendzielarz, "Łupaszka"", Major Hieronim Dekutowski, "Zapora", NSZ's Stanisław Kasznica, officers and soldiers of the Wolność i Niezawisłość (Freedom & Independence - WiN), Narodowe Siły Zbrojne / National Armed Forces (NSZ), Narodowe Zjednoczenie Wojskowe (NZW), and countless others who fought against the communism between 1944-1963, and beyond.

"The Place Where Communists Murdered Polish Heroes."

for example:
Vasili Mikhailovich Blokhin (January 7, 1895 – February 3, 1955) was a Soviet Major-General who served as the chief executioner of the Stalinist NKVD under the administrations of Genrikh Yagoda, Nikolai Yezhov and Lavrentiy Beria (after their respective falls from power, Yagoda and Yezhov were executed by Blokhin himself).

Hand-picked for the position by Joseph Stalin in 1926, Blokhin led a company of executioners that performed and supervised numerous mass executions during Stalin's reign, mostly during the Great Purge and World War II

He is recorded as having executed tens of thousands of prisoners by his own hand, including his killing of about 7,000 Polish prisoners of war during the Katyn massacre in spring 1940,[2][3] making him the most prolific official executioner in recorded world history.[2][4] Forced into a retirement following the death of Stalin, Blokhin died in 1955, officially by suicide.
Although this has never been completely proven, historians suspect that Blokhin shot 7,000 men over a period of twenty-eight days, which would make him one of the most prolific murderers of all time. However many people he killed, Blokhin was consistently promoted by his superiors for performing “special tasks.” He lost his job, however, after Stalin died. The cause of Blokhin’s death, in 1955, was listed as suicide.

Judicial Watch: Feds’ Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border

For those of us who’ve been raising alarms about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration’s non-enforcement of the immigration laws, this is not a surprise — particularly less than two weeks before September 11. But it is nonetheless jarring to read. Judicial Watch has just put out this statement:

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Wow ,,, Dictator in Chief says ....
Obama Delays Immigration Action, Yielding to Democratic Concerns
SEPT. 6, 2014

WASHINGTON — President Obama will delay taking executive action on immigration until after the midterm elections, bowing to pressure from fellow Democrats who feared that acting now could doom his party’s chances this fall, White House officials said on Saturday.

The decision is a reversal of Mr. Obama’s vow to issue broad directives to overhaul the immigration system soon after summer’s end, and sparked swift anger from immigration advocates. The president made the promise on June 30, in the Rose Garden, where he angrily denounced Republican obstruction and said he would use the power of his office to protect immigrant families from the threat of deportation.

“Because of the Republicans’ extreme politicization of this issue, the president believes it would be harmful to the policy itself and to the long-term prospects for comprehensive immigration reform to announce administrative action before the elections,” a White House official said. “Because he wants to do this in a way that’s sustainable, the president will take action on immigration before the end of the year.”

Hundreds of Thousands Deportations that NEVER HAPPEN - a backlog of case of over ten years:
Nearly 400,000 deportation cases pending in US immigration courts
Backlog grown by more than 75,000 cases since October, as tens of thousands of families crossed into the US

Associated Press in Washington, Friday 5 September 2014 16.17 EDT   

The backlog of pending deportation cases in US immigration courts has risen to nearly 400,000 amid a crush of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children and families caught crossing the Mexican border illegally this year, according an analysis of court data released Friday.

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University said in its latest report that as of the end of July, 396,552 cases were pending in the Justice Department’s 59 immigration courts. TRAC collects and studies a variety of federal prosecution records.

The backlog has grown by more than 75,000 cases since the start of the budget year in October, according to TRAC.

The Executive Office for Immigration Review, the Justice Department agency that operates immigration courts, said Friday its records show a caseload of 391,243 pending cases as of 31 July. An agency spokeswoman said the methodology TRAC uses to analyze court data may be different than the methods used by the government.

Since 1 October the Homeland Security Department has reported that more than 66,000 unaccompanied child immigrants, mostly from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, have been caught crossing the Mexican border illegally. More than 66,000 additional immigrants traveling as families, mostly mothers and young children from Central America, have also been caught.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has said that all of the immigrants caught crossing the border would face deportation hearings

Deportation Loophole Lets Thousands Live and Work in US Indefinitely
By  Elizabeth Llorente/
Published September 28, 2011/
Fox News Latino

John has been slated for deportation -- for the last 20 years. The U.S. government renews his work permit annually. He has a driver’s license, and has started a family and set down roots here, a place he calls home.

But he does not have a green card, or permanent U.S. residency, because the U.S. government says John, who has lived here for about 30 years, is ineligible to call this country his home

John lives in an indefinite legal limbo, with the threat of arrest by immigration agents ever-present. But he hasn’t been expelled because his removal is on hold.

And his attorney, Jerard González of New Jersey, says his client sees it as preferable to the alternative – permanent expulsion.

“It’s better than being in Russia or Lebanon,” said González, a former federal immigration prosecutor. “He’s here with his wife.”

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of deportations are delayed every year.

Delayed deportations – known by various names, including “deferred action” – have been part and parcel of U.S. immigration policy for decades, routinely granted under both Democrat and Republican administrations. A work permit and the ability to obtain a driver’s license – two essential things that otherwise are off-limits to undocumented immigrants -- often are part of the deal.

This loophole in immigration law has allowed tens of thousands of foreign nationals --whom the United States has rejected for permanent legal residency, commonly referred to as a “green card”-- stay in the country for years.  Sometimes, like in John's case, the delay is so long that immigrants marry, have children here, buy homes, and even start businesses.

Last year:
Deportation Numbers Unwrapped October 2013
Raw Statistics Reveal the Real Story of ICE Enforcement in Decline
By Jessica M. Vaughan

A key talking point for proponents of amnesty for illegal aliens is that the Obama administration has
made historic improvements to border security and immigration enforcement, leading to “record” numbers
of deportations that surpass the performance of earlier administrations. In December 2012, John
Morton, then-director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), announced that his agency had
removed nearly 410,000 illegal aliens that year. Major news outlets, pro-amnesty lawmakers, and other Obama
administration allies heralded this apparent milestone as evidence that the border and illegal immigration were
now under control.

On the same day, to far less fanfare, Morton also announced the implementation of new restrictions on how the
agents and officers working under him could use their authority to enforce immigration laws. They were told to
curtail the use of detainers, or immigration holds, which give ICE officers the opportunity to question and take
custody of illegal aliens identified after arrest by a local law enforcement agency
. This directive built on an earlier
memo, issued in June 2011, which ordered ICE agents not to arrest certain broad categories of illegal aliens,
including minor criminals, long-time residents, students, parents, caregivers, and a long list of other excepted
categories for whom there was otherwise no statutory basis for special treatment
. These and other directives
have been euphemistically characterized as “prosecutorial discretion.”

drudge: feds place illegals in every state:
Schools scramble to help teens who crossed border
Sep 29, 3:02 PM EDT
AP Education Writer

FRANKFORD, Del. (AP) -- American schools are scrambling to provide services to the large number of children and teenagers who crossed the border alone in recent months.

Unaccompanied minors who made up the summer spike at the border have moved to communities of all sizes, in nearly every state, Federal data indicates, to live with a relative and await immigration decisions. The Supreme Court has ruled that schools have an obligation to educate all students regardless of their immigration status, so schools have become a safe haven for many of the tens of thousands of these young people mostly from central America living in limbo.

Delaware's rural Sussex County has long attracted immigrants, partly because of work in chicken factories, and soybean and corn fields. The district's population is more than one-quarter Hispanic, and for years has offered an early learning program for non-English speakers.

Still, officials were caught off guard by about 70 new students mostly from Guatemala - part of the wave crossing the border - enrolling last year, mostly at Sussex Central High School. The Indian River School District over the summer break quickly put together special classes for those needing extra English help.

Donald Hattier, a school board member, said advance warning would have helped with planning. The federal government, he said, "just dropped this on us." He wonders what's next...

Feds Getting Ready for Executive Action on Immigration


León Rodríguez, the new head of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), recalled how he was put on the “wait list” and eventually denied admission to Georgetown Law School, where he spoke Tuesday.

He tried to persuade the school’s officials to let him in and was told he was lucky to be on a wait list. The story is a metaphor for immigration policy, he said.

“What we do in immigration policy is decide who we want to admit to the U.S. and who we don’t,” he said.

Now Rodríguez is heading Citizenship and Immigration Services, a part of the Department of Homeland Security.

“Looking back Georgetown, would you have admitted me? Would you have had different policies?” he said to chuckles from an audience attending an immigration law and policy conference.

Rodríguez’s agency will be front and center once President Barack Obama announces the executive action he’ll take on immigration. Obama said he would take executive action after the elections but before the end of the year.

“We’re going to be ready,” Rodríguez said. “Our agency will be shouldering the primary responsibility for executing whatever it is.”

Rodríguez declined to elaborate when he was asked by a reporter to give more details on what types of preparations he is making.

EDITORIAL: Green cards on the table

President Obama lets slip his scheme for a permanent majority

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES - - Monday, October 20, 2014

The White House intended to remain silent about its plans for immigration. Revealing a scheme to open the floodgates of amnesty would be disastrous on the eve of the critical midterm elections. But this is the gang that can’t shoot straight.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, rightly and accurately denounced enabling Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits as “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

That was just the beginning. The immigration agency earlier this month had solicited a printer able to handle a “surge” of 9 million green cards “to support possible future immigration-reform initiative requirements.” In an ordinary year, about 1 million green cards are issued, and over the life of this contract the company is expected to produce up to 34 million cards, a figure representing an increase of the population of the United States by 10 percent.

The cards do not come with automatic voter registration, but that’s obviously what the scheme portends. President Obama’s promised “executive actions” to bring about this enormous wave of amnesty constitute a transparent and cynical ploy to expand the Democratic voter base, creating a permanent majority. Republicans running for the House and Senate should demand that Mr. Obama lay his green cards on the table now, before — and not after — the Nov. 4 elections. No other campaign issue carries as much of an impact on the future of the nation.

   Most Americans want no part of this. A Gallup survey finds that 74 percent of Americans    want the level of immigration to stay where it is, or reduce it. Mr. Obama has no support for his amnesty scheme except from those who want to transform America into a nation that no one would recognize. Voters can get to work on stopping the transformation on Nov. 4.

White House Punts on USCIS Request for 'Surge' of Immigration ID's

by Charlie Spiering  21 Oct 2014, 11:38 AM PDT

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest declined to address a Breitbart News report about a “surge” of immigration ID’s requested by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

When asked about the report at the White House Press Briefing today, Earnest referred Breitbart News to the USCIS for comment.

A draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of nine million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”

The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year. In the “surge,” scenario in 2016, the agency would need an additional five million cards – more than double the baseline annual amount – for a total of nine million.

“The guaranteed minimum for each ordering period is 4,000,000 cards. The estimated maximum for the entire contract is 34,000,000 cards,” the document says.

So whites become minorities and so many of the minorities become the majorities. What happens then?

You're on your own. Don't look for us to extend the hand out to you."

Administration Freed Illegal Immigrants Charged With Violent Crimes
 Thursday, 23 Oct 2014 12:25 PM

By Melanie Batley

Illegal immigrants charged with violent crimes and serious felonies were among the hundreds of criminals the Obama administration released from jails across the country in February 2013, newly released documents show.

 According to records obtained by USA Today, the government released inmates charged with offenses ranging from kidnapping and sexual assault to drug trafficking, armed assault, and homicide.

 The evidence contradicts previous assurances by the administration that the 617 criminals who were released as part of a cost-cutting exercise were low-risk offenders charged with misdemeanors "or other criminals whose prior conviction did not pose a violent threat to public safety," USA Today reported.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) admitted to the newspaper that numerous dangerous criminals had been released but denied direct responsibility.

 "Discretionary releases made by ICE were of low-level offenders. However, the releases involving individuals with more significant criminal histories were, by and large, dictated by special circumstances outside of the agency's control," ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen told USA Today.

 The new records obtained by the newspaper from a Freedom of Information Act request outlined previously undisclosed details about the alleged crimes of specific detainees. One person in Texas was charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual assault of a child.

 Another illegal immigrant from Florida was facing charges of conspiracy to commit homicide, according to USA Today.

 Two Massachusetts detainees had been charged with aggravated assault using a weapon, while another illegal immigrant from Colorado was being held on a sexual assault charge.

The internal audit, which concluded in August 2014, concluded that ICE broke the law in releasing the criminal illegal migrants.  !...

Right after election day?

Immigration activists are pressing Mr. Obama to take the most sweeping action possible.

Obama May Cut Deportations

Length of Time in U.S., Family Ties to Others in Country Are Expected Criteria

Oct. 29, 2014 7:41 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON—The White House is considering two central requirements in deciding which of the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants would gain protections through an expected executive action: a minimum length of time in the U.S., and a person’s family ties to others in the country, said people familiar with the administration’s thinking.

Those requirements, depending on how broadly they are drawn, could offer protection to between one million and four million people in the country illegally.

The deliberations follow President Barack Obama ’s promise to act to change the immigration system, after legislation overhauling immigration law died in Congress.

Republicans have protested that Mr. Obama would overstep his authority by acting alone. Several Democratic candidates in tight races also have complained, and last month the president canceled plans to announce the changes before the election.

Mr. Obama, who has been criticized by immigrant-rights advocates for the delay, wants to grant new protections—such as safe harbor from deportation and work permits—to many people who are in the U.S. illegally but have significant ties to the country, said three people familiar with White House thinking.

Such protections would be temporary since the president lacks authority to give people permanent legal status.

One person said officials are leaning toward granting protections to people in the country illegally for 10 years and who meet other criteria, though that could be broadened to include more recent arrivals.

Parents of U.S. citizens are likely to qualify, people familiar with discussions said, as long as they meet other criteria. But it is unclear whether the policy would include parents of so-called Dreamers—people brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and who were given a temporary legal status in 2012.

… Buttbook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (and other tech gazillionaires)
are using their dough, fluff-muscle and mind-control apparatus to help Obola
push open even wider the border floodgates:


SANTA MONICA, California --, the immigration reform initiative founded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, plans to launch a massive political push in December to support President Barack Obama's planned executive action on immigration. On Tuesday evening, it brought roughly 100 entrepreneurs to a "mini-hackathon" at tech incubator Cross Campus as part of a nationwide push to support the president's strategy.

Though declares that its mission is "to advocate for policies that will make the American dream achievable in the 21st century economy," its main focus is immigration reform, which it describes as necessary both for economy growth and to "live up to our American ideals." The group includes tech heavyweights such as Microsoft's Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates; Google's Eric Schmidt; and former Napster founder Sean Parker.

Materials distributed at Tuesday's gathering, one in a series of monthly meetings, called for "[e]ncouraging the President to take meaningful executive action, both for undocumented immigrants and talented tech workers in need of visas." The organizers refer to such executive action as "administrative relief," rather than "executive amnesty," the term favored by opponents of the president's anticipated unilateral effort.

Details about the president's proposed actions have leaked in recent weeks, and Republicans have called upon President Obama to reveal his plans before, rather than after, Election Day. The tech community appears to have accepted a Republican victory on Nov. 4 as a given, and is pressing ahead with efforts to shape public opinion in support of the president, regardless of constitutional problems or policy questions that may arise.

The activists of explicitly model their campaign on the effort to secure gay marriage. "Take the movement for marriage equality," materials distributed at the event said. "It's hard to oppose marriage for gay couples when you know the stories of your LGBTQ [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer] friends, family, and coworkers."

Accordingly, is seeking to compile stories and videos of immigrants or illegal aliens talking about their respective predicaments: "With stories, we can push the needle of public opinion."

There was no discussion at the Santa Monica meeting of technological innovations to improve border security, to verify employees' immigration status, or to educate prospective immigrants about how to come to the country legally.

… Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama nails it:

A nation creates borders and laws to protect its own citizens. What about their needs?

'The World Has Turned Upside Down'

Senator Jeff Sessions will soon release this statement in response to a report in the Wall Street Journal that details President Obama's plans to unilaterally implement amnesty.

"The Wall Street Journal confirmed today that the President is planning to issue a massive unilateral executive amnesty after the election.

"In its report, the WSJ certifies that this executive amnesty would provide work permits for illegal immigrants—taking jobs directly from struggling Americans.

"Based on the USCIS contract bid and statements from USCIS employees, we know this executive immigration order is likely to be broader in scope than anyone has imagined.

"Earlier this week, President Obama’s former head of Homeland Security revealed that she overrode resistance from administration lawyers and law enforcement agents in implementing the President’s earlier unlawful amnesty and work authorization program for illegal immigrants 30 and under. This was an open admission by one of the most senior people in government of violating one’s oath of office in order to accomplish a nakedly political aim.

"The President is assuming for himself the sole and absolute power to decide who can enter, work, live, and claim benefits in the United States. He has exempted virtually every group in the world from America’s immigration laws: people who enter before a certain age, people related to people who enter before a certain age, adults traveling with minors, minors traveling with adults, illegal immigrants who are not convicted of serious crimes, illegal workers who are convicted of serious crimes but not enough serious crimes, almost anyone who shows up the border and demands asylum, the millions who overstay their visas, and, as was recently exposed, illegal immigrants with serious criminal histories. The list continues to grow.

"A nation creates borders and laws to protect its own citizens. What about their needs?"

"The President is systemically stripping away the immigration protections to which every single American worker and their family is entitled. He doesn’t care how this impacts Americans’ jobs, wages, schools, tax bills, hospitals, police departments, or communities.

"But it gets worse still. The WSJ reports that the President is ‘expected to benefit businesses that use large numbers of legal immigrants, such as technology companies.’ Those changes include measures to massively expand the number of foreign workers for IT companies—measures aggressively lobbied for by IT giants like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. Yet we have more than 11 million Americans with STEM degrees who don’t have jobs in these fields. Rutgers professor Hal Salzman documented that two-thirds of all new IT jobs are being filled by foreign workers. From 2000 through today, a period of record legal immigration, all net gains in employment among the working-age have gone entirely to immigrant workers.

"And now, in order to help open borders billionaires, President Obama is going to deny millions of Americans their shot at entering the middle class and a better life.

"The world has turned upside down. Instead of serving the interests of the American people, the policies of President Obama and every Senate Democrat serve the needs of special interests and global CEOs who fail to understand the duty a nation owes to its own people. But the citizens of this country still hold the power, and through their voice, they can turn the country right-side again."

Exclusive–Immigration Crisis: 94% of Border Crossers Skip Court Hearings over 11-Week Period

by Caroline May 31 Oct 2014

Thousands of family units that recently entered the United States illegally failed to appear before immigration judges between July 18 and October 7 of this year.

Documents from the Executive Office of Immigration Review provided to the House Judiciary Committee this week and exclusively obtained by Breitbart News offer a brief snapshot into the failure of certain undocumented immigrants who've been released into the United States to appear in immigration court.

According to the EOIR documents, in that two-and-a-half month period from mid-July to early October, immigration judges across the country rendered 3,885 decisions on removal cases dealing with “aliens” in family units. Of those decisions, 94 percent (3,661) were made “in absentia,” or the alien’s failure to appear resulted in an order of removal.

The document also showed that 9,874 cases were still pending over those months.

Also during that same brief snapshot of time, there were 9,274 first hearings scheduled for unaccompanied minors. An EOIR document shows that of the 9,170 cases that appeared before a judge, there were 7,330 adjournments, 436 venue changes, and 1,404 decisions rendered.
The new EOIR data comes a little over a month after the Associated Press pinned the number of family units who failed to report back to immigration agents at 70 percent.

OBOLA's planned illegal immigration

Human trafficking, drug trafficking and criminal activity are coming
through our borders, but not staying near our borders – it’s getting
into every part of the United States...

by MATTHEW BOYLE  3 Nov 2014


As Americans prepare to vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections, top sheriffs from across the country are warning: If President Barack Obama succeeds with his plans for an executive amnesty, there will be a flood of new illegal immigration into America this country the likes of which this country has never seen before.

“The law applies to you and I as citizens, and yet it appears there is no law when it comes to illegals,” Pinal County Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu said in a statement provided to Breitbart News. “The message the President’s action will send is this: if you can get to the border, you’re home free. It completely undermines the rule of law and makes the job of every law enforcement officers – which is already difficult – impossible.

We already have our hands full because the border is not secure: imagine what the situation will look like when the President gives executive amnesty to those already here. It would unleash a tidal wave of illegal border crossings, overwhelming law enforcement. It will be open season for the cartels. Again: the border is not secure now – to give a presidential amnesty would be to make matters dramatically worse for our officers who are trying to do the job the President won’t.”

Maryland’s Frederick County sheriff Chuck Jenkins said that Obama’s planned executive amnesty, if it succeeds, will turn every county in America into a border county.

“In my opinion, based on what I’ve seen, every county in America will become a border county,” Jenkins said. “What were going to see from the President's action is not only the cost to healthcare, social programs, and education, but the increase in criminals coming into our country. You’re going to see increases in crime, infiltration from transnational gangs, the drug trade and human trafficking.”

Tuesday’s election, Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) wrote in an op-ed for Fox News, (ED: See above post) is a referendum on Obama’s plans for an executive amnesty

President, VP May Differ on Immigration
Strategy: 'Obama Angrily Cut Biden Off'

10:31 AM, NOV 9, 2014 • BY DANIEL HALPER

President Obama and Vice President Biden might not see eye-to-eye on immigration strategy. A hint of an apparent disagreement was on display during Obama's lunch with congressional leaders on Friday at the White House.

"The meeting was tense at times, according to a senior House Republican aide. The aide was not authorized to describe the back-and-forth publicly by name and spoke only on condition of anonymity," the Associated Press reports.

"Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, about to lose his grip on the upper chamber, barely said a word. The aide said at one point as House Speaker John Boehner was making an argument on immigration, Obama responded that his patience was running out and Vice President Joe Biden interrupted to ask how long Republicans needed. Obama angrily cut Biden off, the aide said."

The Wall Street Journal reported similarly on the same exchange:

Mr. Obama told the lawmakers that he had already been patient waiting for the GOP-controlled House to act since the Senate passed a sweeping bipartisan immigration bill in June 2013.

At that point, Vice President Joe Biden asked how long Republicans might need to bring up an immigration bill, according to multiple people familiar with the meeting, asking if they might be ready by mid-February or another time this spring. Mr. Obama gave him a look that ended that line of discussion, the people said.

Democratic congressional aides said the president wasn’t cutting off Mr. Biden, who was making a rhetorical point that Republicans refused to commit to bringing an immigration bill to the floor by a specific time.

An offer by congressional Republicans to work on immigration reform in January was flatly rejected by President Barack Obama, reports said Friday. (

I cant get to the Washington time article

Morale among officers at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, already low, has reached a new bottom as illegal immigrants expecting amnesty from President Obama taunt and ridicule the overworked officers, according to a new report.

“Yes,” said one, “working for this agency is hell right now.”

That was the latest message to immigration policy critic Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies. She has charted the woes of the officers who carry out the president’s orders.

Obama Punishes Business For Engaging In ‘Citizenship-Discrimination’ Against Illegals
by Veronica Coffin on September 4, 2014

Above: Illegal aliens taunt anti-illegal immigration protesters in L.A. in 2010


Obama has quite simply abandoned American workers — and openly boosted the job prospects of illegal aliens. He sicked former Labor Secretary (and La Raza honcho) Hilda Solis on businesses involved in the BP Gulf of Mexico oil cleanup, threatening them with action if they tried to keep illegal aliens from obtaining jobs over Americans.

And now Obama is making an example of a tiny Texas caterer, to scare other businesses into not checking workers “too hard” for immigration status:

A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States.

Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.”

Employers cannot discriminate against workers by requiring them to produce more documents than necessary in the employment eligibility verification and reverification processes,” Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights division, Molly Moran, said in a statement.

Businesses will get the message: do your job weeding out illegals in hiring, and Eric Holder and his leftist college buddies in the “civil rights” division will come down on you like a ton of bricks.

Almost all of the illegal immigrant families traveling from Central America to the U.S. are being released from the special facility meant to hold them in New Mexico, according to the mayor of the town where the special facility is located.

Mayor Phillip S. Burch told KSVP radio in Artesia, New Mexico, last week that the releases defy Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s own pledge in July to make sure those who ended up at the facility were quickly deported from the U.S.

Sacramento Sheriff Jones takes Obama to task on YouTube over immigration reform
By Bill Lindelof-
[email protected]
 11/19/2014 6:40 AM

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones has taken to YouTube to urge President Obama to secure the nation’s borders in light of the death of one of his deputies allegedly by a man who had been deported only to return to the United States.

The eight-minute video takes Congress and Obama to task for not passing immigration reform and for tying the hands of authorities trying to seal the border, but places most of the responsibility on the president.

“While I am not going to overly dramatize this plea by attributing his death to you,” Jones said. “I am going to implore you to address an issue that only you can address: immigration reform.”


He said Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, share blame for failure to enact immigration reform but only Obama is “singularly responsible for the hands-on policy that exists in Homeland Security and its subsidiaries, including customs and border protection.”

14 indicted for role in major central California drug trafficking ring
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Fourteen defendants have been indicted on a variety of federal drug trafficking offenses for their role in a far-reaching scheme based in California’s Central Valley to produce and distribute cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana.

A federal grand jury returned a 32-count indictment Thursday against Francisco Felix, 40, of Mountain House; Alejandro Martinez, 25, of Patterson; Miguel Felix, 34, of Ceres; Martin Lopez, 48, of Rosemead; Gerardo Barraza, 19, of Stockton; Rafael Alcauter, 49, of Newman; Ramon Diaz, 33, of Ceres; Raul Rangel, 41, of San Jose; Sergio Modesto, 34, of Turlock; Martin Rubio, 49, of Stockton; Leonaires Alcauter, 48, of Patterson; Alfonso Magana, 52, of Patterson; Antonio Ramirez, 35, of Patterson; and Augustin Ramirez, 62, of Patterson.

This case was the product of an investigation by the California Department of Justice’s Mountain and Valley Marijuana Investigation Team under the auspices of the Central Valley High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Program, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Placer County District Attorney’s Office, the sheriff’s departments from Placer, El Dorado and Sacramento counties; the California Department of Fish and Wildlife; and the California National Guard Joint Task Force Domestic Support-Counterdrug. The indictments stem from a yearlong narcotics investigation targeting a Central Valley-based drug trafficking organization with ties to Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel that was importing large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine into the U.S. Those narcotics were subsequently distributed throughout California and across the country.

President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday

This post has been updated.

President Obama will announce Thursday that he will use his executive authority to expand temporary protections to millions of undocumented immigrants, according to several individuals who have been briefed on the decision. Obama will travel to Las Vegas on the heels of that announcement to rally support for his initiative on Friday.

Congress will receive official details on the move Thursday, according to a senior Democratic Party official.

[Jeh] Johnson said the administration has concluded it has "wide latitude" to take action. "It can't be that we're not allowed to lift a finger to fix our broken immigration system," he said. "And we will."

Congressional Republicans have warned Obama that he risks undermining the prospects for cooperation on legislation in the final two years of his presidency if he takes action on immigration.

The decision to speak in Las Vegas could also bolster the political standing of Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), who said in an interview with Univision Tuesday that when it came to expanding protections for undocumented immigrants, "I think it should be done now."

With Obama likely on the verge of making an announcement, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the soon-to-be majority leader, expressed confidence Wednesday that congressional Republicans will extend funding for the federal government, which is set to expire next month, even if the president moves to overhaul the immigration system and some conservatives call for a spending showdown.

… tonight the gates swing wide …
bring on the "Undocumented Democrats":

It's like the golden ticket, she said. Everybody who is calling my office is asking how can I get a work permit under Obama's program?

Immigrants wait, hope, plan for Obama order

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Immigrants in the country illegally already are flooding attorneys' offices with calls to see if they can qualify under President Barack Obama's yet-to-be-announced plan to shield as many as 5 million immigrants from deportation.

Obama said he'll reveal the long-awaited order on Thursday. Alex Galvez, an immigration lawyer in Los Angeles, said he's going to need to add phone lines to keep up with the demand. Orange County, California-based immigration lawyer Annaluisa Padilla said she's getting twice as many calls as usual since buzz intensified over the plan, which would also grant the immigrants work permits.

Obama is expected to take executive action to protect many of the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally from deportation after Congress failed to pass an immigration overhaul. Republicans are vehemently opposed to the president's likely actions, with some conservative members threatening to pursue a government shutdown if he follows through on his promises to act on immigration before the end of the year.

"What I am telling my families to do is be prepared for war. We're going to see a legislative arm do whatever they can to stop the president," said Jessica Dominguez, an immigration attorney in Southern California.

White House denies covert plan to issue millions of green cards
By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Wednesday, October 22, 2014

President Obama’s spokesman laughed off as “crazy” Wednesday reports that the Homeland Security Department is preparing for an increase in the number of immigrants living illegally in the country by ordering enough paper to print as many as 5 million “green” cards annually.

White House denies covert plan to issue millions of green cards
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a draft contract proposal to buy the card stock needed to make work permits and Permanent Resident Cards, more commonly known as green cards.

The proposal calls for providing material for at least 5 million cards a year, with as many as 9 million “during the initial period … to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”

The contract calls for as many 34 million cards over five years, the Associated Press reported.

Activists said the report is evidence that Mr. Obama is planning to issue an executive order that is broader in scope than they feared.
The administration is preparing to issue a minimum of 4 million ID and work authorization cards a year, with a special ‘surge scenario’ requiring 9 million cards in 2016,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “This is no longer a limited executive action, but an obscene power-grab that dwarfs the 1986 amnesty that was lawfully passed by Congress.”

On page 28 of the draft contract, DHS states that “the Contractor shall demonstrate the capability to support potential ‘surge’ in … card demand for up to 9 [million] cards during the initial period of performance to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson warned Wednesday that the country could face another spike in illegal immigration as the U.S. economy picks up and as seasonal patterns change, though he said they have made major progress in combatting the surge of illegal immigrant children that wrong-footed his department earlier this year.

“We’re determined that we need to do more ourselves for border security,” Mr. Johnson said in a speech at the National Press Club sponsored by Democratic group NDN. “I’m concerned about the possibility of another rise in illegal migration.”

President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday

This post has been updated.

President Obama will announce Thursday that he will use his executive authority to expand temporary protections to millions of undocumented immigrants, according to several individuals who have been briefed on the decision. Obama will travel to Las Vegas on the heels of that announcement to rally support for his initiative on Friday.

Congress will receive official details on the move Thursday, according to a senior Democratic Party official.

It can't be a coincidence that the announcement about executive amnesty will take place today.

Revolution Day Memorial in Mexico

Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolución) is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Díaz Mori. The public holiday falls on the third Monday in November, near the official day on November 20.


November 20 was the original public holiday date for Revolution Day until 2005. A change in Mexico’s labor law instituted that Revolution Day would be a public holiday across the country on the third Monday of November as of 2006.

Obama’s Amnesty Will Add As Many
Foreign Workers As New Jobs Since 2009

10:37 AM 11/20/2014

President Barack Obama’s unilateral amnesty will quickly add as many foreign workers to the nation’s legal labor force as the total number of new jobs created by his economy since 2009.

The plans, expected to be announced late Nov. 20, will distribute five million work permits to illegal immigrants, and also create a new inflow of foreign college graduates for prestigious salaried jobs, according to press reports.

Obama has already provided or promised almost one million extra work permits to foreigners, while his economy has only added six million jobs since 2009.

Under the president’s new amnesty plan, “up to four million undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years can apply. … An additional one million people will get protection from deportation through other parts of the president’s plan,” according to a Nov. 19 report in The New York Times.

The five million total was attributed to “people briefed on his plans,” the Times reports.

The five million work permits will add to Obama’s prior giveaways, which have provided work permits to almost one million foreigners.

Since 2009, the U.S. economy has added only six million jobs, according to the International Monetary Fund.

Obama’s total of six million extra work permits does not include the normal inflow of legal immigrants.

Our Federal Wallet Stretched To Limit By Illegal Aliens Getting Welfare' "Even worse, Americans have seen heinous crimes committed by individuals who are here illegally." - Senator Dirty Harry Reid, Democratic/Communist Party USA. He also said that the U.S. open door policy is being abused at the expense of honest, working citizens. August 5, 1993, Dirty Harry's office issued the following:

"In response to increased terrorism and abuse of social programs by aliens, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Today introduced the first and only comprehensive immigration reform bill in Congress. Currently, an alien living illegally in the United States often pays no taxes but receives unemployment, welfare, free medical care and other federal benefits. Recent terrorist acts, including the World Trade Center bombing, have underscored the need to keep violent criminals out of the country.....

"Our borders have overflowed with illegal immigrants placing tremendous burdens on our criminal justice system, schools and social programs. The Immigration and Naturalization Service needs the ability to step up enforcement. Our federal wallet is stretched to the limit by illegal aliens getting welfare, food stamps, medical care, and other benefits often without paying any taxes.”

“Safeguards like welfare and free medical care are in place to boost Americans in need of short-term assistance. These programs were not meant to entice freeloaders and scam artists from around the world. Even worse, Americans have seen heinous crimes committed by individuals who are here illegally.”

His statements were to announce a bill he introduced back then titled the Immigration Stabilization Act [S.1351] ( I'm betting it was not written by Dirty Harry, but by lawyers who know what they're doing and the sure to come legal challenges. It covers the whole gambit of turning off the trillions spent over the past 28 years since Reagan sold us out. One section I want to highlight: TITLE X--CITIZENSHIP


"In the exercise of its powers under section 5 of the Fourteenth Article of Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Congress has determined and hereby declares that any person born after the date of enactment of this title to a mother who is neither a citizen of the United States nor admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident, and which person is a national or citizen of another country of which either of his or her natural parents is a national or citizen, or is entitled upon application to become a national or citizen of such country, shall be considered as born subject to the jurisdiction of that foreign country and not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States within the meaning of section 1 of such Article and shall therefore not be a citizen of the United States or of any State solely by reason of physical presence within the United States at the moment of birth."

Dirty Harry was speaking about the legal fiction called 'anchor babies' something I have been very vocal about: States Must Fight Legal Fiction Called Anchor Babies ( Judge Jeanine ‘Illegally Entering U.S. Is Not a Right to Citizenship (' - She is on point and says it like it is: "I draw but one conclusion: Barack Obama is intentionally using the immigration crisis as an excuse to change the demographics and ultimately the electorate of this nation." Illegals tell filmmakers: we were told to vote democrat, or be deported ( "Livingston wrote that, prior to the 2012 presidential election, “the illegals were handed voter registrations and told they would be sent to states with NO ID check for voting.”

Of course, that puffed up peacock has changed his tune:

Historic Overreach: Obama Immigration Order Dwarfs Preceding Presidents’

Will impact more immigrants than all combined actions by every president since Eisenhower

Though the administration and the left-leaning media are frantically attempting to rewrite history (and the president’s own words) about the unprecedented and unconstitutional nature of his planned executive order granting around 5 million illegal immigrants amnesty, the facts demonstrate just how historic an overreach this will be.

Below is a breakdown of every action taken on immigration by every president since Eisenhower. As is clear from the numbers, the estimated 5 million that are going to be impacted by President Obama’s orders dwarfs anything enacted by any president before him. In fact, Obama’s planned order would affect over a million more immigrants than the total of the known number impacted by preceding presidents since Eisenhower.

(The following data via an Oct 2014 study by the American Immigration Council.)

1956 – Eisenhower – 923 orphans adopted by military families
1956-8 – Eisenhower – 31,914 Hungarians escaping Soviets
1959-72 – Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson & Nixon – 621,403 Cubans (legislation pending or passed)
1962-65 – Kennedy & Johnson – 15,100 Chinese
1975-79 – Ford & Carter – 360,000 Indochinese (via 10 authorizations & extensions)
1976 – Ford – 14,000 Lebanese granted work authorization
1977 – Carter – 250,000 “Silva letterholders”; expulsion suspended
1977-82 – Carter & Regan – 15,000 Ethiopians; extended voluntary departure
1977-80 – Carter – 50,000 Soviet refugees
1978 – Carter – unknown number of Ugandans
1979 – Carter – 3,600 Nicaruaguans; extended voluntary departure
1979 – Carter – unknown number of Iranians
1980 – Carter – unknown number of Afghans
1980 – Carter – 123,000 Cubans & Haitians (Mariel boatlift)
1981-87 – Reagan – 7,000 Poles; extended voluntary departure
1987 – Reagan – Up to 200,000 Nicaraguans (legislation pending)
1987 – Reagan – More than 100,000 unauthorized children/families
1989 – Bush Sr. – 80,000 Chinese
1989 – Bush Sr. – 2,225 Indochinese; 5,000 Soviets
1990 – Bush Sr. – 80,000 Chinese (1989 action extended)
1990 – Bush Sr – 1.5 million (legislation passed by Senate)
1991 – Bush Sr. – 2,227 Persian gulf evacuees
1992 – Bush Sr, Clinton – 190,000 Salvadorans; DED extended until 1994

Exclusive - US To Allow People From Nations Hit By Ebola To Stay 'Temporarily'

By Julia Edwards

   U.S. Heightens Ebola Screenings For Travelers From Mali - Huffington Post
    West Africa's Ebola epidemic leads to U.S. protective gear backlog - Reuters
    Singapore requires visa for Ebola-hit African states - AFP
    Ebola death toll rises to 4,950 - WHO - Reuters
    Congo says its separate Ebola outbreak is over  - Associated Press

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Department of Homeland Security will grant temporary protected status to people from the three West African countries most affected by Ebola who are currently residing in the United States, department officials said on Thursday.

People from Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone in the United States as of Thursday may apply for protection from deportation, as well as for work permits, for 18 months, said a Department of Homeland Security official.

After 18 months, the Secretary of Homeland Security will assess whether the protection should be extended, based on the level of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

The move is a response to the Ebola epidemic, which has claimed more than 5,000 lives, mostly in the three West African countries.

In order to prevent a mass migration from West Africa to the United States, nationals from these countries who arrive after Thursday will not be eligible for protected status.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials estimate that 8,000 people will be eligible to apply.

"The Ebola response in the United States has been front and center in the United States government at high levels," said a Department of Homeland Security official. "This designation has been part of that constant monitoring, reevaluation and reassessment of the appropriate response."

The United States reserves temporary protected status for people from countries experiencing conditions deemed too dangerous to return to, such as Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.

Unlike other recipients, protected people from West Africa will not be allowed to travel home and then return to the United States, in order to prevent the disease from spreading.

Nationals from the three countries must undergo a background check in order to receive protected status. Those with a criminal history will not be approved, said the Homeland Security official.

New DHS immigration rules:
Drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers,
gun offenders not top deportation priorities


The Department of Homeland Security has just released new "Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants." Designed to fill in the details after President Obama's announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation's immigration and border security officers as they administer the president's directive.

The new priorities are striking. On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views convicted drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders as second-level enforcement priorities. An illegal immigrant could spend up to a year in prison for a violent crime and still not be a top removal priority for the Obama administration.

Priority two offenders, whose cases are less urgent then criminals in priority one, include the following:

… aliens convicted of a "significant misdemeanor," which for these purposes is an offense of domestic violence; sexual abuse or exploitation; burglary; unlawful possession or use of a firearm; drug distribution or trafficking; or driving under the influence; or if not an offense listed above, one for which the individual was sentenced to time in custody of 90 days or more (the sentence must involve time to be served in custody, and does not include a suspended sentence)

Sheriff Joe pulls legal trigger on O's amnesty

I filed a lawsuit Thursday night against President Barack Obama on behalf of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, to oppose Obama’s unilateral grant of amnesty. The damaging impact of illegal immigration upon Sheriff Arpaio’s community and the burden on his law enforcement resources, as with other border states, have been extensively reported for years.

Everyone is asking what comes next. Well, we at Freedom Watch are asking for a court injunction to block implementation of Obama’s “executive action,” pending review. Right now, news reports of Obama’s speech throughout Mexico, Central America and South America are suggesting that anyone can illegally enter the United States and then get a job here. Not really understanding U.S. law, reporters will lose the details in translation. Sheriff Arpaio’s community will be swamped with a flood of new arrivals, regardless of whether or not they qualify.

Within hours of his speech, Obama sent out fundraising emails asking for $1,000 donations to his Organizing for Action PAC. At Obama’s direction, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson issued memorandum orders that about 5 million illegal aliens be granted the right to stay and work legally in the United States. Johnson’s orders are posted at the agency’s website. These illegal aliens will now outrageously receive Employment Authorization Cards the same as legal immigrants.

Sheriff Arpaio explained: “This unconstitutional act by the president will have a serious detrimental impact on my carrying out the duties and responsibilities for which I am charged as sheriff. Specifically, it will severely strain our resources, both in manpower and financially, necessary to protect the citizens I was elected to serve.”

What Obama calls “executive action” is sparking a brushfire among other law enforcement officials as well. Sheriff Scott Jones of Sacramento County released a video statement highlighting the tragic murders of Sacramento Sheriff Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Sheriff Detective Michael Davis Jr. by an illegal immigrant suspect who had been removed from the U.S. and had returned repeatedly across the porous border. Other sheriffs issued warnings. Don Rosenberg, whose son Drew was killed by an illegal alien, asked with irony if Obama would issue an executive order to bring his son back to life. This helpful support by the other sheriffs aside, as usual, it was Sheriff Arpaio who had the courage and guts to fire the first legal shot. The man is a hero among heroes.

Obama is claiming legal authority based on prosecutorial discretion. That is, Congress has failed to give the Executive Branch the resources to fully enforce the law, so the government must prioritize which categories of illegal aliens it will deport. The focus is on deporting “felons, not families.”

Among the many problems with this: Sheriff Arpaio has arrested 4,000 illegal aliens for committing non-immigration crimes in Arizona. When Sheriff Joe asks Immigration and Customs Enforcement to come and get them, they often refuse. When ICE does take custody of illegal aliens, Arpaio has been forced to re-arrest over 36 percent for new crimes. The Obama administration is really not interested in enforcing immigration law at all. It helps Obama and his leftist-Democrat minions politically to pander to these illegal aliens.

A second problem is that Obama’s “executive action” is clearly legislating, because it sets up a system covering broad categories with detailed requirements. It confers benefits like the right to work. A decision not to prosecute applies to an “adjudication” of an individual defendant. Creating rules for broad categories is legislating. Prosecutorial discretion is adjudicatory, that is, deciding particular cases one by one.

Third, the Executive Branch has not asked Congress for more resources. Each year, the budget process legally compels government agencies to tell Congress what they will need.

The government has not used the other tools Congress provided. The government has not enforced the prohibition on employers hiring illegal aliens, even though fines would probably cover the costs of enforcement.

The Secure Fence Act of 2006 required an additional 700 miles of double-layer fence and operational control of the border within 18 months. Largely because of “designed to fail” bad planning, that hasn’t happened.

Obviously, a law must pass both houses of Congress before being presented to the president. Even the Department of Homeland Security’s website admits that Obama’s 2012 DACA was “unprecedented.”

The U.S. Supreme Court has struck down actions as unconstitutional because they violate the inherent structure of the Constitution. In INS v. Chadha, 462 U.S. 919 (1983), the high court found a legislative veto of Executive Branch actions unconstitutional. That offended the constitutional design that Congress enacts laws and then sends them to the president.

In Train v. City of New York, 420 U.S. 35 (1975), the Supreme Court ruled that President Nixon had to spend all of the money Congress appropriates in each budgetary category. The Court observed, “The president cannot frustrate the will of Congress by killing a program through impoundment.” The Court overturned a longstanding practice in which a president would “impound” (return to the Treasury) some of the funds Congress appropriated.

One can’t resist noting that on Oct. 2, 2014, we at Freedom Watch petitioned the Department of Homeland Security to deport Barack Hussein Obama, due to his use of falsified identity documents. Perhaps Obama has a personal soft spot for not wanting the United States to deport people not legally in the country. Freedom Watch calls for all illegal aliens to be returned to their country of birth, including Obama. To view the complaint I filed on behalf of Sheriff Arpaio, go to

Latin America applauds Obama's immigration plan

 Nov. 21, 2014

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto praised President Barack Obama on Friday for his executive orders granting new rights to millions of people living illegally in the United States, calling it "an act of justice."

Mexicans are believed to account for more than half of the roughly 11.2 million migrants living in the U.S. without authorization. Mexico had long pressed for better conditions for them.

Pena Nieto said in a speech that Obama's plan "is an act of justice that recognizes the large contributions that millions of Mexicans have made to the development of our neighbor."

"These measures represent relief for immigrants, especially Mexicans," he said. "Those who will benefit are Mexican migrants who have been living in the United States for years."

In Honduras, President Juan Orlando Hernandez issued a statement saying that "the decision benefits Honduras and tens of thousands of families."

"This decision makes the United States stronger and will send a powerful message of solidarity with Latin America," Hernandez said.

El Salvador's foreign minister, Hugo Martinez, said that because of Obama's actions "many of our countrymen will get temporary relief for their immigration status."

But the Salvadoran government also said it is preparing an information campaign warning its citizens about migrating in hopes of qualifying under Obama's orders.

"We are informing people that this is a transitional measure that only benefits those Salvadorans who arrived (in the United States) prior to Dec. 31, 2009. Any others won't qualify under this measure," said Liduvina Magarin, El Salvador's assistant minister for Salvadorans abroad.

President Barack Obama brushed off complaints levied by the GOP that his immigration actions are illegal in an ABC News interview that aired today, saying that the U.S. has 'limited resources' and it only makes sense for the government to prioritize the removal of 'felons, criminals and recent arrivals' over longtime residents and families.
'Everybody knows, including Republicans, that we're not going to deport 11 million people,' Obama told George Stephanopolous during a Friday interview for his Sunday morning program This Week.
'The reason that we have to do prosecutorial discretion in immigration is that we know that we are not even close to being able to deal with the folks who have been here a long time,' he said.
Ariz. Sheriff: Illegal Aliens Imprisoned ‘10 Times or More’ for ’10 Different Crimes’
November 20, 2014 - 11:26 AM

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) spoke about criminal illegal aliens in the United States on Nov. 18, 2014 at a House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere hearing. ( Starr
“For fiscal year 2013, ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] released 36,700 convicted criminals who were in the country illegally rather than have them detained pending outcome of deportation proceeding,” DeSantis said. “We always hear we’ve got to focus the resources on the criminals – the people who really mean us harm.

“Some of the convictions these people – 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, kidnapping, aggravated assault, vehicle theft, drug trafficking -- I mean, very, very serious offenses – and yet DHS is releasing these individuals into American society rather than repatriate them back to their nation of origin.”

DeSantis said the government claimed it released the criminals because their countries of origin refused to repatriate them.

So, DeStantis argued, why doesn’t the State Department put pressure on those countries by restricting the issuance of visas if criminals are not permitted to return?

New DHS immigration rules: Drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, gun offenders not top deportation priorities
 By Byron York  | November 22, 2014 | 8:49 am

Priority Two offenders, whose cases are less urgent than criminals in Priority One, include the following:

aliens convicted of a "significant misdemeanor," which for these purposes is an offense of domestic violence; sexual abuse or exploitation; burglary; unlawful possession or use of a firearm; drug distribution or trafficking; or driving under the influence; or if not an offense listed above, one for which the individual was sentenced to time in custody of 90 days or more (the sentence must involve time to be served in custody, and does not include a suspended sentence)

DHS further defines a "significant misdemeanor" as an offense for which the maximum term of imprisonment is one year or less, but greater than five days. In addition, the guidelines contain a possible out for illegal immigrants accused of domestic abuse. "Careful consideration should be given to whether the convicted alien was also the victim of domestic violence," the guidelines say. "If so, this should be a mitigating factor."

Priority Two also includes "aliens convicted of three or more misdemeanor offenses, other than minor traffic offenses or state or local offenses for which an essential element was the alien's immigration status." But there's an important footnote to that. The three offenses must arise out of three separate incidents. If an illegal immigrant committed a single act that resulted in multiple misdemeanor charges, it would count as one charge for DHS counting purposes

Immigration Reform News and Impact on US Homeland Security
November 18, 2014
 Published on Tuesday, 18 November 2014 05:19  Written by FAIR

The inability of Central Americans to qualify for refugee status is likely why the Administration's new program will also consider granting parole to children and/or parents are denied refugee status. Parole, commonly referred to as "humanitarian parole," is authorized by INA Section 212. The statute grants the Executive Branch discretion to "parole into the United States temporarily under such conditions as [it] may prescribe only on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit...."

This new policy elevates the status of China, putting it on a level footing with major trading partners of the United States, such as Brazil, Argentina, Israel, France, the United Kingdom, and many other European countries. (CNN, Nov. 10, 2014; see, Reciprocity Schedule By Country) However, the U.S. actually has a number of reasons to be stricter rather than more lenient in granting visas to Chinese citizens. Such reasons include China's visa refusal rate of 8.5%, its widespread promotion and practice of birth tourism, and its systematic refusal to repatriate its own criminal citizens. (Foreign Policy, Apr. 25, 2014; Boston Globe, Dec. 9, 2012; Fox News, Aug. 13, 2012; GAO, May 2004)

China's refusal to repatriate its own nationals is particularly significant because the law requires the State Department to refuse to issue visas to the citizens of countries that do so.

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release
November 20, 2014
FACT SHEET: Immigration Accountability Executive Action

FACT SHEET:  Immigration Accountability Executive Action
The President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable, and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules.  Acting within his legal authority, the President is taking an important step to fix our broken immigration system.

These executive actions crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay their fair share of taxes as they register to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

These are common sense steps, but only Congress can finish the job. As the President acts, he’ll continue to work with Congress on a comprehensive, bipartisan bill—like the one passed by the Senate more than a year ago—that can replace these actions and fix the whole system.

Three critical elements of the President’s executive actions are:

•Cracking Down on Illegal Immigration at the Border:  The President’s actions increase the chances that anyone attempting to cross the border illegally will be caught and sent back. Continuing the surge of resources that effectively reduced the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border illegally this summer, the President’s actions will also centralize border security command-and-control to continue to crack down on illegal immigration.
•Deporting Felons, Not Families: The President’s actions focus on the deportation of people who threaten national security and public safety. He has directed immigration enforcement to place anyone suspected of terrorism, violent criminals, gang members, and recent border crossers at the top of the deportation priority list.
•Accountability – Criminal Background Checks and Taxes: The President is also acting to hold accountable those undocumented immigrants who have lived in the US for more than five years and are parents of U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents.  By registering and passing criminal and national security background checks, millions of undocumented immigrants will start paying their fair share of taxes and temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation for three years at a time.
The President’s actions will also streamline legal immigration to boost our economy and will promote naturalization for those who qualify.

For more than a half century, every president—Democratic or Republican—has used his legal authority to act on immigration.  President Obama is now taking another commonsense step. As the Administration implements these executive actions, Congress should finish the job by passing a bill like the bipartisan Senate bill that: continues to strengthen border security by adding 20,000 more Border Patrol agents; cracks down on companies who hire undocumented workers; creates an earned path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who pay a fine and taxes, pass a background check, learn English and go to  the back of the line; and boosts our economy and keeps families together by cutting red tape to simplify our legal immigration process.


Under the Obama Administration, the resources that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) dedicates to security at the Southwest border are at an all-time high.  Today, there are 3,000 additional Border Patrol agents along the Southwest Border and our border fencing, unmanned aircraft surveillance systems, and ground surveillance systems have more than doubled since 2008. Taken as a whole, the additional boots on the ground, technology, and resources provided in the last six years represent the most serious and sustained effort to secure our border in our Nation’s history, cutting illegal border crossings  by more than half.

And this effort is producing results. From 1990 to 2007, the population of undocumented individuals in the United States grew from 3.5 million to 11 million people.  Since then, the size of the undocumented population has stopped growing for the first time in decades. Border apprehensions—a key indicator of border security— are at their lowest level since the 1970s.  This past summer, the President and the entire Administration responded to the influx of unaccompanied children with an aggressive, coordinated Federal response focused on heightened deterrence, enhanced enforcement, stronger foreign cooperation, and greater capacity for Federal agencies to ensure that our border remains secure.  As a result, the number of unaccompanied children attempting to cross the Southwest border has declined precipitously, and the Administration continues to focus its resources to prevent a similar situation from developing in the future.

To build on these efforts and to ensure that our limited enforcement resources are used effectively, the President has announced the following actions:

•Shifting resources to the border and recent border crossers. Over the summer, DHS sent hundreds of Border Patrol agents and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel to the Southwest border, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) reordered dockets in immigration courts to prioritize removal cases of recent border crossers.  This continued focus will help keep our borders safe and secure. In addition, Secretary Johnson is announcing a new Southern Border and Approaches Campaign Plan which will strengthen the efforts of the agencies who work to keep our border secure.  And by establishing clearer priorities for interior enforcement, DHS is increasing the likelihood that people attempting to cross the border illegally will be apprehended and sent back.
•Streamlining the immigration court process. DOJ is announcing a package of immigration court reforms that will address the backlog of pending cases by working with DHS to more quickly adjudicate cases of individuals who meet new DHS-wide enforcement priorities and close cases of individuals who are low priorities. DOJ will also pursue regulations that adopt best practices for court systems to use limited court hearing time as efficiently as possible.
•Protecting victims of crime and human trafficking as well as workers. The Department of Labor (DOL) is expanding and strengthening immigration options for victims of crimes (U visas) and trafficking (T visas) who cooperate in government investigations.  An interagency working group will also explore ways to ensure that workers can avail themselves of their labor and employment rights without fear of retaliation.

By setting priorities and focusing its enforcement resources, the Obama Administration has already increased the removal of criminals by more than 80%.  These actions build on that strong record by:

•Focusing on the removal of national security, border security, and public safety threats.  To better focus on the priorities that matter, Secretary Johnson is issuing a new DHS-wide memorandum that makes clear that the government’s enforcement activity should be focused on national security threats, serious criminals, and recent border crossers.  DHS will direct all of its enforcement resources at pursuing these highest priorities for removal.
•Implementing a new Priority Enforcement Program. Effectively identifying and removing criminals in state and local jails is a critical goal but it must be done in a way that sustains the community’s trust. To address concerns from Governors, Mayors, law enforcement and community leaders which have undermined cooperation with DHS, Secretary Johnson is replacing the existing Secure Communities program with a new Priority Enforcement Program (PEP) to remove those convicted of criminal offenses.  DHS will continue to rely on biometric data to verify individuals who are enforcement priorities, and they will also work with DOJ’s Bureau of Prisons to identify and remove federal criminals serving time as soon as possible.

Every Democratic and Republican president since Dwight Eisenhower has taken executive action on immigration.  Consistent with this long history, DHS will expand the existing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to include more immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.  DHS will also create a new deferred action program for people who are parents of U.S. Citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) and have lived in the United States for five years or longer if they register, pass a background check and pay taxes.

The President is taking the following actions to hold accountable certain undocumented immigrants:

•Creating a mechanism that requires certain undocumented immigrants to pass a background check to make sure that they start paying their fair share in taxes. In order to promote public safety, DHS is establishing a new deferred action program for parents of U.S. Citizens or LPRs who are not enforcement priorities and have been in the country for more than 5 years.  Individuals will have the opportunity to request temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for three years at a time if they come forward and register, submit biometric data, pass background checks, pay fees, and show that their child was born before the date of this announcement. By providing individuals with an opportunity to come out of the shadows and work legally, we will also help crack down on companies who hired undocumented workers, which undermines the wages of all workers, and ensure that individuals are playing by the rules and paying their fair share of taxes.
•Expanding DACA to cover additional DREAMers. Under the initial DACA program, young people who had been in the U.S. for at least five years, came as children, and met specific education and public safety criteria were eligible for temporary relief from deportation so long as they were born after 1981 and entered the country before June 15, 2007.  DHS is expanding DACA so that individuals who were brought to this country as children can apply if they entered before January 1, 2010, regardless of how old they are today.  Going forward, DACA relief will also be granted for three years.
The President’s actions will also streamline legal immigration to boost our economy and promote naturalization by:

•Providing portable work authorization for high-skilled workers awaiting LPR status and their spouses.  Under the current system, employees with approved LPR applications often wait many years for their visa to become available.  DHS will make regulatory changes to allow these workers to move or change jobs more easily.  DHS is finalizing new rules to give certain H-1B spouses employment authorization as long as the H-1B spouse has an approved LPR application.
•Enhancing options for foreign entrepreneurs.  DHS will expand immigration options for foreign entrepreneurs who meet certain criteria for creating jobs, attracting investment, and generating revenue in the U.S., to ensure that our system encourages them to grow our economy.  The criteria will include income thresholds so that these individuals are not eligible for certain public benefits like welfare or tax credits under the Affordable Care Act.
•Strengthening and extending on-the-job training for STEM graduates of U.S universities. In order to strengthen educational experiences of foreign students studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at U.S. universities, DHS will propose changes to expand and extend the use of the existing Optional Practical Training (OPT) program and require stronger ties between OPT students and their colleges and universities following graduation.
•Streamlining the process for foreign workers and their employers, while protecting American workers. DHS will clarify its guidance on temporary L-1 visas for foreign workers who transfer from a company’s foreign office to its U.S. office. DOL will take regulatory action to modernize the labor market test that is required of employers that sponsor foreign workers for immigrant visas while ensuring that American workers are protected.
•Reducing family separation for those waiting to obtain LPR status. Due to barriers in our system, U.S. citizens and LPRs are often separated for years from their immediate relatives, while they wait to obtain their LPR status. To reduce the time these individuals are separated, DHS will expand an existing program that allows certain individuals to apply for a provisional waiver for certain violations before departing the United States to attend visa interviews.
•Ensuring that individuals with lawful status can travel to their countries of origin. DHS will clarify its guidance to provide greater assurance to individuals with a pending LPR application or certain temporary status permission to travel abroad with advance permission (“parole”).
•Issuing a Presidential Memorandum on visa modernization. There are many ways in which our legal immigration system can be modernized to reduce government costs, eliminate redundant systems, reduce burdens on employers and families, and eliminate fraud. The President is issuing a Memorandum directing an interagency group to recommend areas for improvement.
•Creating a White House Task Force on New Americans. The President is creating a White House Task Force on New Americans to create a federal strategy on immigrant integration.
•Promoting Citizenship Public Awareness: DHS will launch a comprehensive citizenship awareness media campaign in the 10 states that are home to 75 percent of the overall LPR population. USCIS will also expand options for paying naturalization fees and explore additional measures to expand accessibility, including studying potential partial fee waiver for qualified individuals.
•Ensuring U.S. Citizens Can Serve: To further our military’s needs and support recruitment efforts, DHS will expand an existing policy to provide relief to spouses and children of U.S. citizens seeking to enlist in the military, consistent with a request made by the Department of Defense.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, routinely releases dangerous detainees to the streets of America without warning the public. Over the past four years, immigration officials have largely without notice freed more than 8,500 detainees convicted of murder, rape, and other crimes, according to ICE’s own statistics, mainly because their home countries would not take them back.

Deporting illegal immigrants requires more than simply putting them on an airplane to their own country. People being deported need travel papers — such as a passport — like anyone else who travels abroad.

If their native country refuses to issue the necessary papers , the United States cannot send deportees there. And the Supreme Court has said ICE cannot hold the immigrants forever; if immigration officials cannot deport them after six months, the court said, they should generally set the immigrants free.

… WTF?

Did OBOLA even SIGN an Excutive Action
dealing with IMMIGRATION?

Apparently NOT! 

JEROME CORSI accuses the PREZ of a, "… 'sleight of hand' to protect self from impeachment."


NEW YORK – Did President Obama just set up Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to be a candidate for impeachment instead of himself if conservatives convince the Republican majorities in the House and the Senate that his “executive actions” on immigration are unconstitutional?

The inquiry begins with the question: Where are the executive orders Obama supposedly signed to permit up to 5 million parents of young illegal aliens to remain in the United States for three years?

The White House appears to have engaged in administrative sleight of hand, changing U.S. immigration law not by executive order but by a memorandum “exercising prosecutorial discretion” Johnson signed the day of Obama’s Nov. 20 nationwide address that so far has not been filed in the Federal Register.

Tom Fitton, president of Washington-based watchdog institution Judicial Watch, told WND in an interview the legal status of Johnson’s memo is a serious constitutional question that deserves to be adjudicated.

The entire implementing authority involves a memorandum published by DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson that changes the immigration law, directing federal money to be spent that has not been appropriated by Congress,” he said.

“In my view, there is a serious question whether Jeh Johnson should be impeached for taking this action, and a criminal investigation should be initiated to determine how and why federal funds are being misappropriated,” he declared.

Fitton said DHS “is being hijacked to implement actions Congress has neither authorized nor appropriated funds to accomplish.”

The Federal Register lists 26 executive orders President Obama has signed this year, with the most recent being “Improving the Security of Consumer Financial Transactions,” signed Oct. 17 and published in the Federal Register Oct. 23.

The last item DHS filed in the Federal Register relevant to DACA was a form revision filed April 4 that had nothing to do with the actions Obama announced Nov. 20.

Jeff Sessions: Obama Is Giving Cash
Benefits to Illegal Immigrants

By Joel Gehrke
December 5, 2014 2:34 PM

Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) seized on a White House admission that beneficiaries of President Obama’s immigration orders will receive tax credits, a sign that the orders amount to more than an exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

“This is yet one more illustration of the enormous cost inflicted by the President’s illegal action,” Sessions told National Review Online in a statement. “He has now launched a new $100 million facility and staffing operation to provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits rejected by Congress – including work permits, Social Security and Medicare. These credits will cost American taxpayers billions every year and represent an enormous cash transfer from American workers to lower-wage illegal workers. These tax credits are not refunds, but a direct cash payment from the Treasury to illegal immigrants – at a time when the Treasury is running huge deficits.”

… millions continue to enter the U.S. lawfully and claim taxpayer benefits ...

  Sessions is probably the best Senator we have in this country.

  We knew this was going to happen.

  Obama and his minions are Communists.


Could this be happening in America?  If so, how?

Our "elected representatives" have passed laws implementing these anti-freedom concepts. The communists have achieved a de facto FEDERAL SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT in America.

In 1848 Karl Marx and Frederick Engels wrote a book outlining a political ideology, titled "The Communist Manifesto". Marxism's basic theme is that the proletariat (the "exploited" working class of a capitalistic society) will suffer from alienation and will rise up against the "bourgeoisie" (the middle class) and overthrow the system of "capitalism." After a brief period of rule by "the dictatorship of the proletariat" the classless society of communism would emerge. In his Manifesto Marx described the following ten steps as necessary steps to be taken to destroy a free enterprise society!! Notice how many of these conditions, foreign to the principles that America was founded upon, have now, in 1997, been realized by the concerted efforts of socialist activists? Remember, government interference in your daily life and business is intrusion and deprivation of our liberties!

First Plank: Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes. (Zoning - Model ordinances proposed by Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover widely adopted. Supreme Court ruled "zoning" to be "constitutional" in 1921. Private owners of property required to get permission from government relative to the use of their property. Federally owned lands are leased for grazing, mining, timber usages, the fees being paid into the U.S. Treasury.)

Second Plank: A heavy progressive or graduated incometax. (Corporate Tax Act of 1909. The 16th Amendment, allegedly ratified in 1913. The Revenue Act of 1913, section 2, Income Tax. These laws have been purposely misapplied against American citizens to this day.)

Third Plank: Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (Partially accomplished by enactment of various state and federal "estate tax" laws taxing the "privilege" of transfering property after death and gift before death.)

Fourth Plank: CONFISCATION OF THE PROPERTY OF ALL EMIGRANTS AND REBELS. (The confiscation of property and persecution of those critical - "rebels" - of government policies and actions, frequently accomplished by prosecuting them in a courtroom drama on charges of violations of non-existing administrative or regulatory laws.)

Fifth Plank: Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. (The Federal Reserve Bank, 1913- -the system of privately-owned Federal Reserve banks which maintain a monopoly on the valueless debt "money" in circulation.)

Sixth Plank: Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State. (Federal Radio Commission, 1927; Federal Communications Commission, 1934; Air Commerce Act of 1926; Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938; Federal Aviation Agency, 1958; becoming part of the Department of Transportation in 1966; Federal Highway Act of 1916 (federal funds made available to States for highway construction); Interstate Highway System, 1944 (funding began 1956); Interstate Commerce Commission given authority by Congress to regulate trucking and carriers on inland waterways, 1935-40; Department of Transportation, 1966.)

Seventh Plank: Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. (Depart-ment of Agriculture, 1862; Agriculture Adjustment Act of 1933 -- farmers will receive government aid if and only if they relinquish control of farming activities; Tennessee Valley Authority, 1933 with the Hoover Dam completed in 1936.)

Eighth Plank: Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies especially for agriculture. (First labor unions, known as federations, appeared in 1820. National Labor Union established 1866. American Federation of Labor established 1886. Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 placed railways under federal regulation. Department of Labor, 1913. Labor-management negotiations sanctioned under Railway Labor Act of 1926. Civil Works Administration, 1933. National Labor Relations Act of 1935, stated purpose to free inter-state commerce from disruptive strikes by eliminating the cause of the strike. Works Progress Administration 1935. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, mandated 40-hour work week and time-and-a-half for overtime, set "minimum wage" scale. Civil Rights Act of 1964, effectively the equal liability of all to labor.)

Ninth Plank: Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country. (Food processing companies, with the co-operation of the Farmers Home Administration foreclosures, are buying up farms and creating "conglomerates.")

Tenth Plank: Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production. (Gradual shift from private education to publicly funded began in the Northern States, early 1800's. 1887: federal money (unconstitutionally) began funding specialized education. Smith-Lever Act of 1914, vocational education; Smith-Hughes Act of 1917 and other relief acts of the 1930's. Federal school lunch program of 1935; National School Lunch Act of 1946. National Defense Education Act of 1958, a reaction to Russia's Sputnik satellite demonstration, provided grants to education's specialties. Federal school aid law passed, 1965, greatly enlarged federal role in education, "head-start" programs, textbooks, library books.

How to Build a Perfect Refugee Camp


From the outside, the temporary shelter for Syrian civilians in Kilis, Turkey, doesn’t look like an inviting place to live. It looks like a prison. All around are olive groves, but here, Turkey suddenly runs out. A metal archway announces the customs gate to Syria. To its right stands what is more formally known as the Republic of Turkey Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency’s Kilis Oncupinar Accommodation Facility. High gates bar entry, and barbed wire tops the walls. Police officers and private security mill about

Many of the world’s displaced live in conditions striking for their wretchedness, but what is startling about Kilis is how little it resembles the refugee camp of our imagination. It is orderly, incongruously so. Residents scan a card with their fingerprints for entry, before they pass through metal detectors and run whatever items they’re carrying through an X-ray machine. Inside, it’s stark: 2,053 identical containers spread out in neat rows. No tents. None of the smells — rotting garbage, raw sewage — usually associated with human crush and lack of infrastructure.
“It’s the nicest refugee camp in the world!” a Polish diplomat staying at my hotel crowed when I mentioned the place to him the next day. Standing with him was an Italian official; he nodded vehemently in agreement. No one I spoke to — not the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, not academics, not even the refugees — denies that the standard of living here is exceptionally high. When I later listed the amenities to a refugee expert, she replied, “I’ve never heard of such a thing.”

 Obama Deputies Free 30,862 Foreign Criminals
6:30 PM 12/05/2014

President Barack Obama’s immigration deputies released 30,862 foreign criminals into the United States’ cities and neighborhoods, according to a federal document.

The document also showed that Obama repatriated less than 1 percent of the 12 million illegals
living in the United States during the 12 months up to October 2014.

Officials also repatriated only 8,805 of the roughly 180,000 unskilled Central American migrants who flooded across the border since 2011
, according to the “Fiscal Year 2014 ICE Enforcement and Removal Operation Report.”

“Immigration enforcement has been destroyed by this President,” Sen. Jeff Sessions said in a Dec. 5 statement.

Americans “must understand the situation can be remedied: if the public elects officeholders who will demand enforcement—at the worksite, the welfare office, and all ports of entry—the lawlessness can swiftly be ended,” he said.

Dec 12, 6:14 PM EST



LOS ANGELES (AP) -- In small-town community centers, schools, churches and a vast city convention center, immigrant advocates are spreading the word about President Barack Obama's plan to give millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally a temporary reprieve.

The November announcement promising work permits and protection from deportation made a splash, but lawyers say the events are crucial to dispel rumors about eligibility, ward off fraud, and help immigrants determine what they might need to apply.

In Los Angeles, advocates are hosting an information session for as many as 10,000 people at the city's convention center Sunday.

"After this big forum, we're going to have daily orientations. That is what we have to do in order to deal with the demand," said Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles.

Immigrants are eager to see if they qualify for Obama's executive actions to spare nearly 5 million people from deportation and to refocus enforcement efforts on criminals.

Will we defend and protect the people who sent us here – their laws, their Constitution, their communities – or we will abandon them?

The U.S. Department of Commerce informs us that “today’s typical 18- to 34-year-old earns about $2,000 less per year (adjusted for inflation) than their counterpart in 1980.” That is a sharp and painful wage decline for young Americans. What has happened in the labor market since 1980?

Data from the U.S. Census Bureau offers this insight: “From 1930 to 1950, the foreign-born population of the United States declined from 14.2 million to 10.3 million…[but] Since 1970, the foreign-born population of the United States has increased rapidly due to large-scale immigration.” Census Bureau statistics report that in 1980, the foreign-born population stood at 14.1 million.

From 1980 through 2013, the immigrant population tripled from 14 million to more than 41 million.

This large increase in the size of the immigrant population is the direct product of policies in Washington.
Legal immigration during the 80’s averaged around 600,000 a year. But since 1990 through today it has averaged about 1 million annually – meaning the annual rate almost doubled. The sustained large-scale flow of legal immigration – overwhelmingly lower-wage and lower-skilled – has placed substantial downward pressure on wages.

We have, right now, a very slack labor market with more jobseekers than jobs.

From 1980 through 2013, the immigrant population tripled from 14 million to more than 41 million.

Consider this report just published in the New York Times:

Working, in America, is in decline. The share of prime-age men — those 25 to 54 years old — who are not working has more than tripled since the late 1960s, to 16 percent. More recently, since the turn of the century, the share of women without paying jobs has been rising, too. The United States, which had one of the highest employment rates among developed nations as recently as 2000, has fallen toward the bottom of the list…
At the same time, it has become harder for men to find higher-paying jobs. Foreign competition and technological advances have eliminated many of the jobs in which high school graduates… once could earn $40 an hour, or more.

… these numbers, non-chalantly reported
by a government agency, are truly mind-boggling:

Census: 30% of U.S. population growth will
be immigrants, 78 million by 2060


Immigration into the United States will continue at a historic pace for the next several decades, bringing the total number of foreign-born citizens to 78 million by 2060, according to the Census Bureau.

In a new series of new projections released this month, the Census said that the growth of immigrants in the United States will surge 81 percent from the current 43 million.

That will feed the massive growth of the nation overall. Census projected that the United States will have a population of 416 million by 2060, a massive 30 percent growth spurt.

According to the population control group Negative Population Growth, Census projects an increase of 97 million people, one third from other countries.

By these projections, America will grow by an average of over: 2.1 million people per year, 175,000 per month, 5,800 per day, for the next 46 years,” said the group’s president, Donald Mann.

Mexican president offers Obama help with amnesty documents

By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Tuesday, January 6, 2015

Mexico’s president told President Obama Tuesday that his government will supply the documents necessary for millions of illegal Mexican immigrants to prove they’ve been living in the U.S. prior to 2010, a move that will help them qualify for Mr. Obama’s recently announced deportation amnesty.

In an Oval Office meeting, President Enrique Pena Nieto praised Mr. Obama’s executive action on amnesty as “very intelligent and audacious,” and said his government will do everything in its power to ensure that Mexicans who want to stay in the U.S. can do so.

The move has proven far more controversial in Washington, where Republican critics say the president’s unilateral move was unwise and unconstitutional.

About two-thirds of the nearly 5 million illegal immigrants covered by Mr. Obama’s action are natives of Mexico. It’s not clear what kind of documentation the Mexican government will provide to show proof of residency in the U.S. prior to 2010 — the cutoff date to qualify for Mr. Obama’s amnesty plan and avoid deportation.

Driver's licenses for illegal immigrants an issue in three states
 By Jon Feere, contributor

In Colorado, Oregon, and California, the granting of driver's licenses to illegal aliens has generated controversy and raised national security concerns that have gone largely unreported
The federal REAL ID Act — which put a number of recommendations from the 9/11 Commission into effect — standardizes state driver's licenses and seeks to prevent illegal aliens from boarding airplanes, entering government buildings or accessing nuclear power plants. But illegal immigration advocates have pushed some states to offer special driver's licenses just for illegal aliens that are not REAL ID compliant. The movement is part of the effort to blur the distinction between law-abiding residents and foreigners who believe they are above the law

California opens driver's license applications to illegal immigrants

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- California on Friday will start taking driver's license applications from the nation's largest population of immigrants in the country illegally.


California is one of 10 states that now provide licenses to immigrants in the country illegally. The licenses issued to immigrants without legal status will include a distinctive marking and are not considered a valid form of federal identification.

Advocates have encouraged immigrants to seek the license. But they are warning those with deportation orders or criminal records to first seek legal advice since law enforcement can access DMV data.

Applicants must submit proof of identity and state residency and pass written and road tests. Those who don't possess foreign government-issued identification on a list of approved documents can be interviewed by a DMV investigator to see if they qualify.

For the driving test, "license" (or to register the a car!!!) they need to show proof of liability insurance for the car that they are driving ...  After that all bets are off!!!   The CHP and the judges just let these guys off for everything ... they flee to other states , get other ID or move ... It's the biggest joke ... It makes me sad for the future ...
We are talking millions of these jokers in this state ...

To take your driving test, you will need to:
• Make a driving test Appointment(s) . (Driving tests are not given without an appointment.) You may also call 1-800-777-0133 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, to make a driving test appointment.
• Provide proof of financial responsibility
• California Insurance Requirements

TRAGIC: Illegal Alien With Criminal Record Kills AZ Clerk Over a Pack of Cigarettes

January 23, 2015 By Matthew Burke

.... Obama won’t be announcing that the 21-year-old victim could have been his son, as he announced during the Trayvon Martin case. Nor will leftist billionaire George Soros be contributing funds to groups lobbying to secure the U.S. border to keep tragedies like the following from happening. Furthermore, the case will unlikely be noticed by Obama Attorney General, Eric Holder.


A heartbreaking and tragic story took place in Mesa, Arizona, Thursday evening as a hard-working convenience store clerk was shot to death by an illegal alien.

QuickTrip (QT) employee Grant Ronnebeck, only age 21, was working the graveyard shift when an angry illegal alien demanded cigarettes after dumping some change on the checkout counter.  He had worked for QT since he was 16.

According to Mesa Police spokesman Detective Steve Berry, Ronnebeck told the 29-year old  suspect, Apolinar Altamirano, “I can’t give you the cigarettes until I count the money.” Berry said that although Ronnebeck did give the cigarettes to Altamirano, it wasn’t enough to save his life. The suspect then proceeded to shoot Ronnebeck anyway.

AZ Central  reports that Altamirano had previously pleaded guilty to a 2012 burglary charge, but had his sentence reduced to two years of probation after the charge was amended to “facilitation to commit burglary.” Court documents show that Altamirano was born in Mexico, was in the United States illegally [ since he was 14 !!! ], and a judge had previously notified U.S. immigration officials of his status.

Altamirano was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, burglary, armed robbery, unlawful flight and misconduct involving weapons since he is a prohibited possessor, after a high-speed chase that ended with an officer intentionally ramming into the car driven by Altamirano in Phoenix.

Suspect in Mesa QT killing faced deportation proceedings


The man accused of gunning down a Mesa convenience-store clerk over a pack of cigarettes was facing deportation proceedings but had been released from federal custody on bond, authorities said Monday.

Federal immigration authorities launched the proceedings two years ago against Apolinar Altamirano, but he was released on a $10,000 bond shortly after his conviction on a burglary charge.

While Altamirano, 29, was out of custody, two injunctions against harassment were issued against him by a Mesa Municipal Court judge. "I am in fear for my life," one woman wrote, adding that Altamirano had threatened to kill her "plenty of times" and pointed a gun at her boyfriend, according to court records.
"After reviewing his immigration and criminal history, which showed only this conviction, ICE determined that under applicable law, Mr. Altamirano was eligible for bond. Mr. Altamirano posted a $10,000 bond on January 7, 2013. Mr. Altamirano's removal case was still pending with the immigration courts at the time of his most recent arrest."
She said it is not unusual for an immigrant accused of being in the U.S. illegally to wait two or three years for a hearing. She noted that the bond in Altamirano's immigration case is very high, likely because of his prior conviction

A presentence report in the 2012 burglary case said Altamirano was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. when he was 14 years old. It said he had been married to the co-defendant in the burglary for nine years and they had two children. It also said Altamirano never attended school in the U.S. and the highest grade he completed in school was fifth. He had been working as a landscaper prior to his arrest.

A probation officer recommended supervised probation but not jail time, even though she expressed concern about Altamirano's "possible involvement with drug sales."

She wrote, "He is also in the United States illegally and he is involved in criminal activity."

Updated: 26 States File Lawsuit Over President Obama's Executive Amnesty
Updated:  Wed, Dec 3rd 2014 @ 4:06 pm EST

Eighteen states, led by Texas, filed a lawsuit today with the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Texas challenging President Obama's executive action on immigration. The suit claims that the White House overstepped its authority by granting amnesty and work permits for 5 million illegal aliens.

After filing the federal suit, Texas Attorney General and Governor-elect Greg Abbott wrote in a statement that President Obama's executive amnesty "tramples the U.S. Constitution's Take Care Clause and federal law."

Also included in Attorney General Abbott's statement were the states' legal challenges to President Obama's executive action:
•The executive action on immigration conflicts with the President’s constitutional duty to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” The Take Care Clause limits the scope of presidential power and ensures that the chief executive will uphold and enforce Congress’s laws – not unilaterally rewrite them under the cover of “prosecutorial discretion.”
•The DHS Directive failed to comply with the Administrative Procedure Act’s required notice and comment rulemaking process before providing that legal benefits like federal work permits, Medicare, and Social Security be awarded to individuals who are openly violating immigration laws.
•The executive action to dispense with federal immigration law will exacerbate the humanitarian crisis along the southern border, which will affect increased state investment in law enforcement, health care and education.

The other states involved in the suit include: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

UPDATE: Arizona has joined the lawsuit. In a statement, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said, "Obama has exceeded his power as clearly defined in the United States Constitution and federal law and deliberately ignored the will of the American people. Such federal overreach cannot stand."

Florida has joined the lawsuit. In a statement, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said, "The President repeatedly said he would not violate the law, then decided to do just that. The powers granted to the President are expressly laid out in the United States Constitution, yet President Obama has decided to ignore those parameters."

As of December 10, Arkansas, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio and Oklahoma have also joined the lawsuit.

Tennessee Attorney General Herb Slatery announced his state has joined the lawsuit filed by attorneys general and governors challenging the constitutionality of President Obama’s executive amnesty.

As of January 26, Nevada has joined the suit, bringing the total number of states to 26.

“Our immigration system is broken and clearly needs to be fixed,” said Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, who vowed to fight the president’s executive action shortly after it was announced in November. “The solution must be a permanent, legal result that includes, not ignores, the other branches of government and their constitutional roles.”

Report: 5.5 million Additional Work Permits Issued Since 2009 In ‘Shadow’ Authorization System
by Caroline May2 Feb 2015

The Obama administration has been issuing millions of work permits over the limits set by Congress, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

In the report released Monday, the anti-amnesty group explains data it obtained from U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) via a Freedom of Information Request.


Federal records show, the CIS finds, that from 2009-2014 the agency issued 5,461,568 new work permits to immigrants, beyond the 1.1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers admitted to the U.S. each year.

CIS laid out three categories of immigrants who received work authorization under what the group is calling a “shadow” system:

Approximately 1.8 million new work permits were issued to aliens with temporary visas or who entered under the visa waiver program. Of these, about 1.2 million (67%) had a visa status for which employment is not authorized by law, such as foreign students and independents of guest workers.

About 982,000 new work permits issued to illegal aliens or aliens unqualified for admission. Of these, 957,000 were aliens who crossed the border illegally (Entered Without Inspection). Inexplicably, 1,200 new work permits were issued to aliens who were denied asylum, were suspected of using fraudulent documents, were stowaways, or were refused at a port of entry.

About 1.7 million, were issued to aliens whose status was unknown, not recorded by the adjudicator, or not disclosed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the agency that processes the applications.

“I was astonished at the huge number of work permits that are being issued by the Obama administration outside the legal immigration system through executive discretion, especially at a time of high unemployment and stagnant wages,” Jessica Vaughan, CIS’ director of policy studies, said Monday. “Besides the effect on the American worker, it encourages and rewards more illegal immigration.”

| - - - -

The executive branch is operating a huge parallel work-authorization system outside the bounds of the [immigration] laws and limits written by Congress [and which] inevitably reduces job opportunities for Americans,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, while filed the FOIA request.

“The true magnitude of how often he has evaded the limits set by Congress on foreign workers has never been known until now,” she told The Daily Caller.


But Obama’s quiet award of five million work permits, plus his November amnesty, will have added roughly 10 million foreign workers to the economy by the end of 2015. The influx adds to the normal inflow of 1 million immigrants per year and the standing population of 2 million white-collar and blue-collar guest workers.

So 18 million foreign students and workers — including many university-trained workers — have jumped into the U.S. economy since Obama was inaugurated in 2009.

The 18 million is almost level with the roughly 24 million young Americans who have turned 18 and joined the work force in the six years since 2009. In effect, Obama has given employers the option to hire a government subsidized foreigner in place of roughly one-in-two Americans who have graduated since 2009.

That’s a great deal for employers, because the foreign workers are indirectly subsidized by the government. The subsidy is the government’s promise of citizenship to many workers if they gain and hold jobs sought by Americans, plus the many aid and welfare programs that are provided to all low-income workers.

Impregnating America With Islam
Sharia Law And Confrontation
By Frosty Wooldridge
"The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities and languages." President Teddy Roosevelt

Of all the unwise and foolish things our U.S. Congress has imposed on the American people in the past 40 years, the late Teddy Kennedy's 1965 Immigration Reform Act will prove the most dangerous piece of legislation for the continuance of the United States.

While George Washington enjoys the moniker as "Father of our country", Kennedy may become known as the "Father of the destruction of our country."

Not only did his bill ram an added 100 million immigrants into the United States in the past 40 years, it will cram another 100 million into this country by 2035-a scant 24 years from now.

Beyond the environmental overload as to ecological footprint, carbon footprint, water, energy and resources-we face another more ominous and deadly overload of incompatible cultures and religions. The wise philosopher Kant said, "Religion and language are the two great dividers."

While benign religions like Buddhism settle into any civilization without antagonisms, the fastest growing religion in the world aggressively moves from its third world roots into first world countries with astounding speed. It has ransacked Europe's tranquility. In France, police, firemen and citizens will not enter 750 "no go" zones now dominated by Muslims.

Islam advocates for barbaric martyrdom with suicide bombers, female genital mutilation, arranged marriages, female subjugation, honor killings at over 5,000 annually inside the Middle East, stonings, beheadings, acid throwing into women's faces and no rights for women.

While it doesn't advocate aggressively within a Western country at first, as its numbers grow, it demands more and more impregnation of Sharia Law. That law creates an entirely new economic, social and religious paradigm inside the host country. Muslims do not remain timid for long!

In 1990, less than 100,000 Muslims lived within the United States. In 2011, they boast over seven million. At 100,000 Muslims added to the USA annually, they will add one million every decade. But with their birthrates, they can expect to add five million Muslims within 20 to 30 years. At present, they have built 1,208 mosques across the USA. No women can walk inside the front doors. They must go to the side. No women can share worship with any men. No women can walk into a mosque with their faces showing.

As seen in the United Kingdom, with a scant 2.5 million, they are already instituting Sharia Law by forcing democratic law out of Islamic dominated areas of London.

In an oped at, they published a piece "Beheading ourselves over Islam."

"What can the U.S. do to quell the violent spasms of Islam? Promote Islam, naturally. At least that's the thinking of this administration. It's now official foreign policy," opined Investers. "President Obama's top Muslim envoy has been overseas encouraging devotion to Islam, including in terror hot spots like Afghanistan. In fact, Rashad Hussain, U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, just returned from Afghanistan, where he told locals the antidote to Islamic violence "is Islam itself."

"I am of the opinion that one of the strongest tools that you can use to counter radicalization and violent extremism is Islam itself, because Islam rejects violent extremism," Hussain said during a speech in Kabul.

"Afghans responded to his message by slaughtering a dozen innocent United Nations workers in the name of Islam," wrote Investers. "Stirred by mosque sermons, a mob of thousands overran a U.N. compound in northern Afghanistan following Friday prayers. They sawed off the heads of two guards before killing the others, including Norwegian and Swedish nationals, inside. It was Afghanistan's deadliest attack on U.N. personnel. The worshippers also burned American flags and effigies of Obama all to defend the honor of a single, paperback copy of a Quran torched by a quack U.S. preacher thousands of miles away in Florida. So far, more than 20 have died in the rioting."

Islamic law is absolute

"Islamic law calls for vengeance against anybody who insults Islam, its prophet or its holy book. Islamic law is enshrined in the post-Taliban Afghan constitution. Yet Rashad, a devout Muslim, says the Muslim faith is "key" to the administration's strategy to turn Muslims away from violence," reported Investers.

"We see that as one of the key elements of a strategy to address this type of violence," he said. By "we," he means the Obama administration. So it's now official policy to try to douse the Islamic fire of jihad by pouring more fuel on it. This is breathtaking.

"It found that Islam was catalyzing terrorists abroad and inside America's Muslim community. And it scolded U.S. leaders for pretending otherwise. Still, Hussain insists: "When it comes to the problem of violent extremism, Islam is not the problem."

If Americans expect to survive the 21st century with this nation intact, we need to shut down all Muslim immigration into this country. Any person can see that Islam has done to France, UK, Norway, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Austria and Spain.

Do we want the constant confrontation of competing ethnic tribes, especially when America's dominate white/black/Hispanic tribes do not possess the kind of religious zeal of Islam? Do we want to see our democratic laws degraded into Sharia Law? Do we want to see women's rights flushed down the toilet? Do we want to see free speech and thought shut down? Do we want to see our free society morphed into a dictatorial society run by Islam that features its first tenet as: "Convert or kill all non-believers." Koran

So far, as we immigrate millions of Muslims into America, we are choosing to lose America by our inaction, inability or apathy to speak up.

Sen. Jeff Sessions Calls For Investigation Into ‘Shadow’ Work Authorization System

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is calling for an investigation into the recently exposed “shadow” work authorization system, in which the Obama administration has allowed millions more immigrants than Congress mandated to obtain work permits.

“This massive increase in the labor supply has occurred simultaneously with a steep drop in family incomes and a sharp rise in the number of Americans pushed out of the workforce,” Sessions said in a statement Monday. “All jobs gains since the recession have gone to foreign workers, while the slack labor market has depressed median family incomes almost $5,000 in that time.”

Sessions was reacting to new data revealed in a Center for Immigration report, showing that since 2009 the Obama administration has issued 5.5 million new work permits, more than the 1.1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers allowed into the to the U.S. annually.

CIS obtained the data via a Freedom of Information Act and, according to Sessions, the “shadow immigration system” should be investigated.

Boehner Calls Out Cruz, Sessions on Immigration

Senate conservatives have prodded the House on border bills. Now the tables have been turned.
By Daniel Newhauser
February 3, 2015

Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans are hoping to kill two birds with one stone.

Before the Senate voted Tuesday against proceeding on a House-passed Homeland Security Department funding bill, Boehner called on Senate conservative firebrands to help pass the measure, loaded with provisions blocking President Obama's immigration policy. At the same time, he and his lieutenants took aim at vulnerable Senate Democrats, daring them to vote "no."

"It's time for Senator Cruz and Senator Sessions, and Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats to stand together with the American people and block the president's actions," Boehner told reporters Tuesday morning.

Boehner's pleas appear to have fallen on deaf Democratic ears: Only 51 senators -- all Republicans -- voted to invoke cloture Tuesday on the House bill, well short of the needed 60 votes.

Rep. John Carter, chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, said it is possible the House could ask for an injunction on the executive action, although he noted that the chamber will have a high hurdle to prove standing in the case.

"It will be an interesting challenge for everybody if the injunctive relief is granted," he said. "It is supposed to be a priority of the court."

Title: IRS offers extra tax refunds to illegal immigrants granted amnesty by Obama
Post by: larsonstdoc on February 04, 2015, 09:10:18 am

  You'd think that this a script for Saturday Night Live.  Truly unbelievable.
  It's truly not our country any more. 

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen confirmed Tuesday that illegal immigrants granted amnesty from deportation under President Obama’s new policies would be able to get extra refunds from the IRS for money they earned while working illegally, as long as they filed returns during those years.

Illegal immigrants who are granted the amnesty will be given official Social Security numbers, which means they can go back and amend up to three years of previous tax forms to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, potentially claiming billions of dollars in additional payments they were ineligible for before the amnesty.

So WHY is Obama doing this?  Could it be to allow lots of ISIS terrorists in our Country?  Maybe...

But think of this as a possible reason ??:  Most illegal immigrants from Mexico are Catholic.  It is no secret the Pope has wanted to take over America.  The Catholic church didn't take it too well when the "persecuted" Protestant left Europe and formed a new Country over 200 years ago with religious freedoms.  The C. Church has always wanted to control America and the whole world.  The Bible says "the whole world wondered after the Beast" and it IS going to happen. But the Catholic control will be short-lived according to the Bible. Study the books of Daniel and Revelation--you will find out what the future holds if you do.

As it is, with lots of Mexicans voting, the Catholics will be all set to enforce her CONTROL.  She will prove to be WORSE than ISIS. Check out what she did in the Dark Ages.  Or read the book: The Great Controversy by E. G. White.  It tells the truth!! You can read it here online:

California DMV ordered to overlook identity theft by illegals

Illegal aliens may enjoy a free pass on identity theft due to a new investigative policy at California’s Department of Motor Vehicles  (DMV).

The policy, issued last year and effective as of Jan. 1, 2015, directs DMV investigators to overlook identity theft by applicants “who may have attempted to obtain or been issued a license or ID card previously through submission of false information.”

A DMV source who asked to remain anonymous provided Breitbart News exclusively with a copy of the newly enacted internal policy memorandum. The document informs DMV investigative officers that past identity theft is acceptable when the illegally acquired IDs were only used to obtain a driver license, and where the license or ID was not used to commit any other crime....

The policy seems to expect applicants to admit voluntarily to using a fraudulent driver license or ID for purposes other than driving a motor vehicle, if they did so.  Typically, identity theft may be prosecuted as a felony in California. The new DMV policy may be an attempt to protect illegal aliens from prosecution and conviction for a felony that could lead to their deportation, and disqualify them from President Barack Obama’s new “executive amnesty” policy.

... a naturalized or natural born U.S. citizen who attempted to obtain a driver license fraudulently would not receive the same consideration, and would be prosecuted as a criminal....

There were more tests than visits because some people failed and had to retake tests.

‘Amnesty Bonuses’ in Tax Code: Illegal Immigrants to
Receive Earned Income Tax Credit

7:16 AM, FEB 6, 2015 • BY DANIEL HALPER

Could cost ‘more than $24,000 to those who receive deferred action’

President Barack Obama has promoted his recent executive action on immigration by arguing that he’s only deferring action – holding off on enforcement of the current immigration laws until an immigration reform he approves of passes Congress. But that's not really true; in fact there’s a way for illegal immigrants immediately to receive “amnesty bonuses,” as Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska terms it.

Here’s how. A recent Homeland Security Committee hearing on immigration revealed an alarming consequence of President Obama’s executive amnesty—that illegal immigrants with deferred status may be able to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Moreover, this person, who is here in the U.S. unlawfully, could be able to file an amended tax return for up to the last three tax years, possibly receiving upwards of $24,000 in tax credits.

Obama “Hopeful” Immigration Will Drown Conservatism

White House Correspondent

The spread of vibrant social diversity is constricting the GOP’s ability to champion conservative causes, such as smaller government and independent families, President Barack Obama said in a softball media interview.

“Over the long term, I’m pretty optimistic, and the reason is because this country just becomes more and more of a hodgepodge of folks,” Obama told Vox editor Ezra Klein.

“People are getting more and more comfortable with the diversity of this country, much more sophisticated about both the cultural differences but more importantly, the basic commonality that we have,” he said in his talk, which was recorded Jan 23.

But for Obama, “commonality” is a go-to euphemism for big, intrusive, nation-wide government by progressive experts.

The nation’s governors “all have a common interest, and that is making sure that their constituents — who are also my constituents — are able to gain opportunity, work hard, prosper, feel secure,” Obama said in a Dec. 5 comment about visiting governors. “That happens best when we work together, whether we’re talking about Democrats and Republicans and independents working together, or whether we’re talking about state, federal and local officials working together,” he said.

It's arguably the biggest [immigration] program they've
ever had to implement, and with a population that has
done everything possible to avoid contact with authorities.

Obama faces high stakes in rollout of
controversial immigration program


President Obama will soon roll out one of the most ambitious and controversial programs of his presidency, an effort to grant a reprieve from deportation to millions of adult immigrants living in the country illegally.

With time short and stakes high, the Obama administration knows it cannot afford another debacle like 2013's botched introduction of the Affordable Care Act.

The challenges posed by the new immigration program will be enormous. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services projects 1.3 million people will apply in the first six months, starting in May, although no one knows for sure. Anything close to that will be a giant new workload for the agency, which processes about 6.3 million other applications annually.

It's arguably the biggest [immigration] program they've ever had to implement, and with a population that has done everything possible to avoid contact with authorities.
- Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice

The cost of implementing the president's executive actions will be $324 million to $484 million over the next three years, according to a draft of a letter from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson obtained by The Times.

The money to pay for the program will come from application fees, the agency says. Because of that, the administration says it does not need Congress' authority to spend money on the program.

In November, Obama announced the executive action that would temporarily defer deportation for up to 5 million of the 11.2 million people living in the U.S. illegally.

The agency anticipates more than 800,000 applications in the first 90 days.

Advocates are planning a publicity campaign to coax people to step forward and apply.

The job of a sheriff is to uphold the law.
And this executive action is NOT a law.

The Sickening Way Obama’s Making
Police Enforce Amnesty

Even if police wanted to stay true to constitutional values, it looks like they can’t.

That’s because the DHS under Obama has threatened law enforcement agencies with defunding if they don’t comply with his new executive order.

Basically, if an agency doesn’t like amnesty they can just let their department shrivel up and die. Which is great for all the locals who depend on police for protection.

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith reported receiving a “very interesting veiled threat” from Johnson, which he said was addressed to “all police chiefs and sheriffs around the country.”

Within the correspondence, Smith explained, was a promise that “local and state public safety agencies would not receive federal grants they were counting on” if legislators do not endorse the DHS funding bill Obama supports.

After Obama’s executive action regarding immigration – a move that erases the threat of deportation for millions of illegals currently in the U.S. – was issued late last year, Republicans in Congress have characterized the order as a back door amnesty. Smith reports that the administration is now attempting to co-opt law enforcement agencies to plead Obama’s case before local lawmakers under threat of severe budget cuts.

“Let me get this straight,” he wrote in the Facebook post, “—the president believes he has the authority to nullify federal laws that don’t serve his personal agenda, but if Congress dares to exercise it’s [sic] responsibility of controlling the purse strings, he will willingly hold public safety grants hostage just to get his way?”

  I don't know if this has been posted before in this thread but if it has, IT IS WORTH A RERUN...

22 Times President Obama Said He Couldn’t Ignore or Create His Own Immigration Law

President Obama is once again trying to mislead Americans, but he can’t run from what he’s said over and over (and over) again. Not only are Americans not stupid – they can read:

“I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with [the president] trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.” (3/31/08)
“We’ve got a government designed by the Founders so that there’d be checks and balances. You don’t want a president who’s too powerful or a Congress that’s too powerful or a court that’s too powerful. Everybody’s got their own role. Congress’s job is to pass legislation. The president can veto it or he can sign it. … I believe in the Constitution and I will obey the Constitution of the United States. We're not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end-run around Congress.” (5/19/08)

“Comprehensive reform, that's how we're going to solve this problem. … Anybody who tells you it's going to be easy or that I can wave a magic wand and make it happen hasn't been paying attention to how this town works.” (5/5/10)

“[T]here are those in the immigrants’ rights community who have argued passionately that we should simply provide those who are [here] illegally with legal status, or at least ignore the laws on the books and put an end to deportation until we have better laws. ... I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair. It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there will be no repercussions for such a decision. And this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration. And it would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally. Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its borders and set laws for residency and citizenship.  And no matter how decent they are, no matter their reasons, the 11 million who broke these laws should be held accountable.” (7/1/10)

“I do have an obligation to make sure that I am following some of the rules. I can't simply ignore laws that are out there. I've got to work to make sure that they are changed.” (10/14/10)

“I am president, I am not king. I can't do these things just by myself. We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the Executive Branch to make it happen. I'm committed to making it happen, but I've got to have some partners to do it. … The main thing we have to do to stop deportations is to change the laws. … [T]he most important thing that we can do is to change the law because the way the system works – again, I just want to repeat, I'm president, I'm not king. If Congress has laws on the books that says that people who are here who are not documented have to be deported, then I can exercise some flexibility in terms of where we deploy our resources, to focus on people who are really causing problems as a opposed to families who are just trying to work and support themselves. But there's a limit to the discretion that I can show because I am obliged to execute the law. That's what the Executive Branch means. I can't just make the laws up by myself. So the most important thing that we can do is focus on changing the underlying laws.” (10/25/10)

“America is a nation of laws, which means I, as the President, am obligated to enforce the law. I don't have a choice about that. That's part of my job. But I can advocate for changes in the law so that we have a country that is both respectful of the law but also continues to be a great nation of immigrants. … With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed …. [W]e’ve got three branches of government. Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws. There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President.” (3/28/11)

“I can't solve this problem by myself. … [W]e're going to have to have bipartisan support in order to make it happen. … I can't do it by myself. We're going to have to change the laws in Congress, but I'm confident we can make it happen.” (4/20/11)
“I know some here wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself.  But that’s not how democracy works.  See, democracy is hard.  But it’s right. Changing our laws means doing the hard work of changing minds and changing votes, one by one.” (4/29/11)

“Sometimes when I talk to immigration advocates, they wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that’s not how a democracy works. What we really need to do is to keep up the fight to pass genuine, comprehensive reform. That is the ultimate solution to this problem. That's what I’m committed to doing.” (5/10/11)
“I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books …. Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that's not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That's not how our Constitution is written.” (7/25/11)

“So what we’ve tried to do is within the constraints of the laws on the books, we’ve tried to be as fair, humane, just as we can, recognizing, though, that the laws themselves need to be changed. … The most important thing for your viewers and listeners and readers to understand is that in order to change our laws, we’ve got to get it through the House of Representatives, which is currently controlled by Republicans, and we’ve got to get 60 votes in the Senate. … Administratively, we can't ignore the law. … I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true.  We are doing everything we can administratively.  But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce.  And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things.  It’s just not true. … We live in a democracy.  You have to pass bills through the legislature, and then I can sign it.  And if all the attention is focused away from the legislative process, then that is going to lead to a constant dead-end. We have to recognize how the system works, and then apply pressure to those places where votes can be gotten and, ultimately, we can get this thing solved.” (9/28/11)

In June 2012, President Obama unilaterally granted deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA), allowing “eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety … to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization.” He then argued that he had already done everything he could legally do on his own:

“Now, what I’ve always said is, as the head of the executive branch, there’s a limit to what I can do. Part of the reason that deportations went up was Congress put a whole lot of money into it, and when you have a lot of resources and a lot more agents involved, then there are going to be higher numbers. What we’ve said is, let’s make sure that you’re not misdirecting those resources. But we’re still going to, ultimately, have to change the laws in order to avoid some of the heartbreaking stories that you see coming up occasionally. And that’s why this continues to be a top priority of mine. … And we will continue to make sure that how we enforce is done as fairly and justly as possible. But until we have a law in place that provides a pathway for legalization and/or citizenship for the folks in question, we’re going to continue to be bound by the law. … And so part of the challenge as President is constantly saying, ‘what authorities do I have?’” (9/20/12)

“We are a nation of immigrants. … But we're also a nation of laws. So what I've said is, we need to fix a broken immigration system. And I've done everything that I can on my own[.]” (10/16/12)
“I'm not a king. I am th
e head of the executive branch of government. I'm required to follow the law. And that's what we've done. But what I've also said is, let's make sure that we're applying the law in a way that takes into account people's humanity. That's the reason that we moved forward on deferred action. Within the confines of the law we said, we have some discretion in terms of how we apply this law.” (1/30/13)

“I’m not a king. You know, my job as the head of the executive branch ultimately is to carry out the law.  And, you know, when it comes to enforcement of our immigration laws, we’ve got some discretion. We can prioritize what we do. But we can’t simply ignore the law. When it comes to the dreamers, we were able to identify that group and say, ‘These folks are generally not a risk. They’re not involved in crime. … And so let’s prioritize our enforcement resources.’ But to sort through all the possible cases of everybody who might have a sympathetic story to tell is very difficult to do. This is why we need comprehensive immigration reform. To make sure that once and for all, in a way that is, you know, ratified by Congress, we can say that there is a pathway to citizenship for people who are staying out of trouble, who are trying to do the right thing, who’ve put down roots here. … My job is to carry out the law. And so Congress gives us a whole bunch of resources. They give us an order that we’ve got to go out there and enforce the laws that are on the books.  … If this was an issue that I could do unilaterally I would have done it a long time ago. … The way our system works is Congress has to pass legislation. I then get an opportunity to sign it and implement it.” (1/30/13)

“This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed. And Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system. And what that means is that we have certain obligations to enforce the laws that are in place even if we think that in many cases the results may be tragic. ... [W]e've kind of stretched our administrative flexibility as much as we can[.]” (2/14/13)
“I think that it is very important for us to recognize that the way to solve this problem has to be legislative. I can do some things and have done some things that make a difference in the lives of people by determining how our enforcement should focus. … And we’ve been able to provide help through deferred action for young people …. But this is a problem that needs to be fixed legislatively.” (7/16/13)

“My job in the executive branch is supposed to be to carry out the laws that are passed. Congress has said ‘here is the law’ when it comes to those who are undocumented, and they've allocated a whole bunch of money for enforcement. And, what I have been able to do is to make a legal argument that I think is absolutely right, which is that given the resources that we have, we can't do everything that Congress has asked us to do. What we can do is then carve out the DREAM Act folks, saying young people who have basically grown up here are Americans that we should welcome. … But if we start broadening that, then essentially I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally. So that's not an option. … What I've said is there is a there's a path to get this done, and that's through Congress.” (9/17/13)
f, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so. But we’re also a nation of laws. That’s part of our tradition. And so the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws. And what I’m proposing is the harder path, which is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you want to achieve. … It is not simply a matter of us just saying we’re going to violate the law. That’s not our tradition. The great thing about this country is we have this wonderful process of democracy, and sometimes it is messy, and sometimes it is hard, but ultimately, justice and truth win out.” (11/25/13)

“I am the Champion-in-Chief of comprehensive immigration reform. But what I’ve said in the past remains true, which is until Congress passes a new law, then I am constrained in terms of what I am able to do. What I’ve done is to use my prosecutorial discretion, because you can’t enforce the laws across the board for 11 or 12 million people, there aren’t the resources there.  What we’ve said is focus on folks who are engaged in criminal activity, focus on people who are engaged in gang activity. Do not focus on young people, who we’re calling DREAMers …. That already stretched my administrative capacity very far. But I was confident that that was the right thing to do. But at a certain point the reason that these deportations are taking place is, Congress said, ‘you have to enforce these laws.’ They fund the hiring of officials at the department that’s charged with enforcing.  And I cannot ignore those laws any more than I could ignore, you know, any of the other laws that are on the books. That’s why it’s so important for us to get comprehensive immigration reform done this year.” (3/6/14)

“I think that I never have a green light [to push the limits of executive power].  I’m bound by the Constitution; I’m bound by separation of powers.  There are some things we can’t do. Congress has the power of the purse, for example. … Congress has to pass a budget and authorize spending. So I don’t have a green light. … My preference in all these instances is to work with Congress, because not only can Congress do more, but it’s going to be longer-lasting.” (8/6/14)

President Obama should listen to President Obama, drop his plan to “expand the authority of the executive branch into murky, uncharted territory,” and work with Congress rather than insisting on his stubborn, “my way or the highway” approach.

Lynch Doubles-Down On Executive Work Permits For Illegal Workers
Published on Jan 28, 2015

Senator Sessions, Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at today’s

more on Loretta Lynch :
In 2001, Lynch left the U.S. Attorney's office to become a partner at Hogan & Hartson (later Hogan Lovells). She remained there until January 20, 2010, when President Barack Obama nominated Lynch to again serve as United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.[7][10]
From 2003 to 2005, she was a member of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

.; investigated Citigroup over mortgage securities sold by the bank, resulting in a US$7 billion settlement; and was involved in the US$1.2 billion settlement with HSBC over violations of the Bank Secrecy Act.
Lynch and her husband, Stephen Hargrove, married in 2007. In her personal life she uses her married name, Loretta Lynch Hargrove. Her husband has two children from a previous marriage

Hogan Lovells is a multinational law firm co-headquartered in London and Washington, D.C.. It was formed on May 1, 2010 by the merger of Washington-based Hogan & Hartson and London-based Lovells.[4] Hogan Lovells has around 2,500 lawyers working out of more than 40 offices in the United States, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia. In 2013, Hogan Lovells was the eleventh largest law firm in the world by revenues,[5] earning around US$1.8bn (£1.1bn) that year.[6]

Hogan Lovells claims specialization in "government regulatory, litigation and arbitration, corporate, finance, and intellectual property".[7]

Loretta Lynch fumbled on HSBC years ago. Now she can prove no bank is too big to jail

Top bankers must face justice. Is Lynch the right person for the job?
Bartlett Naylor

As US senators move towards confirming Loretta Lynch as the new attorney general, the big question is what she will do about HSBC, which is embroiled in a massive tax evasion scandal. The world’s second-largest bank allegedly enabled thousands of Americans and other nationals to escape taxes by concealing their assets in HSBC’s Swiss affiliate, a business HSBC acquired when it purchased the Republic National Bank of New York.

Lynch has investigated the bank in the past, but there are many questions about her record on taking Wall Street offenders to task. She became the chief attorney for an ongoing probe into HSBC’s money laundering crimes in 2010, during her assignment as the US attorney for the eastern district of New York. At roughly the same time, the US government received a damning trove of evidence from French officials against HSBC regarding tax evasion.

Yet it is not clear whether she investigated the tax fraud. The key questions senators must ask is: What did Lynch know about the tax fraud? If she wasn’t aware, why not?

Lynch’s investigation did result in a December 2012 deferred prosecution agreement
, which is a half-measure in criminal cases, somewhere between a conviction and exoneration. In this agreement, HSBC admitted to massive money laundering violations for narco-traffickers, terrorists and tyrants. This involved more than $200tn in wire transfers. But Lynch did not bring criminal charges against HSBC or any HSBC executives for this admitted money laundering.

Instead, the deal required that the bank pay $1.9bn, about five weeks profit in fines – money that was effectively paid by shareholders. The settlement also required HSBC to appoint a compliance monitor and institute reforms to prevent future wrongdoing. Lynch did not explain how they came up with $1.9bn. Was this more than the bank profited from money laundering? Was there some formula?

  Does anybody else see why we are in deep trouble here in America?  The IRS will hound you for $1000 in back taxes UNLESS YOU WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT.  Yet they will give these illegals REFUNDS ON TAXES THEY DIDN'T PAY.  STUPID AMERICAN LEADERS.

Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez told The Daily Caller Friday that he didn’t know that illegal immigrants are eligible for tax refunds — even if they haven’t paid taxes.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told members of Congress Wednesday that illegal immigrants who did not pay taxes will be able to claim back-refunds once they are issued social security numbers.

“I know nothing of the sort,” Gutierrez snapped at a Daily Caller reporter Friday when asked about Koskinen’s testimony.

“Of course it would be like you to raise that sort of question,” the Democrat continued. “Why don’t you ask the commissioner of the IRS?”

The commissioner, of course, had already been asked about it.

Congress Heads to Recess With Homeland Security Funding in Limbo

Lawmakers leave town Friday for a 10-day recess, leaving them just a few days before funding runs out on the Department of Homeland Security.

On Thursday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell re-filed a House bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security and reverse President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

It was the same bill Democrats successfully blocked three separate times last week, and unless at least seven of them change their minds and vote to proceed on the measure when it comes up again when Congress returns from its week-long President’s Day recess, it will fail a fourth time.

And so Congress is at an impasse, with members headed back to their homes almost empty handed after a marathon six-week legislative stretch to open the year. Their ability to eke out a solution by the time homeland security money runs dry on Feb. 27 will determine whether the 230,000 department employees will have to go without pay – although all but about 15 percent are considered “essential” and will have to show up for work anyway – or whether the new Republican majority is capable of leading a functioning legislature.

“House Republicans refuse to admit the dangerous collapse of their anti-immigrant grandstand,” Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters Thursday. “Republicans should stop holding our homeland security hostage and bring forward a clean, long-term funding bill immediately

Tears welling in her eyes, Maria Sotomayor explained to a staffer in the office of Rep. Lou Barletta how the Pennsylvania Republican put her family at risk by attempting to dismantle President Barack Obama’s executive orders on immigration.
One floor above Barletta’s quarters in the Cannon House Office Building, 20 protesters huddled in the midst of House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul’s office, raising their voices to the Texas Republican’s staff.
Most protesters left voluntarily, and a group protesting in Sen. Rand Paul’s office left without Capitol Police present. They, too, joined hands and prayed in Spanish before leaving the Kentucky Republican’s area and the building.

United Methodists are joining with other religious leaders to provide hospitality and basic needs for hundreds of Central American women and children entering the United States illegally and dropped off at bus stations in Tucson and Phoenix, Ariz.
United Methodist Women has expressed deep concern about the child refugee crisis at the border and the decision by President Obama to postpone a Homeland Security deportation enforcement review, as noted in a June 16 letter to President Obama by Harriett Jane Olson, UMW’s top executive.

“We implore you to take the actions the White House can implement now, including directives to stop detaining and deporting people simply because of their immigration status and mechanisms to provide provisional status until a legalization bill becomes law,” she wrote

This is our country Obama.

America wins for now

You lose Obama for now

Start those buses heading for Mexico Obama

The Rule of Law wins today and until Obama's attorney's find or make loopholes.

A federal judge in Texas on Monday issued a preliminary injunction blocking the U.S. government from enacting President Obama's executive order on immigration to defer deportations for up to 5 million undocumented immigrants.

U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen of the Southern District of Texas temporarily blocked the federal government from implementing "any and all aspects" of the order, which protected millions of people in the country illegally from immediate deportation.

Hanen's ruling allows a lawsuit filed by Texas and 25 other states challenging Obama's executive order to go forward. In his ruling, Hanen said the Obama administration violated the Administrative Procedure Act.

The preliminary injunction applies to the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawfu
