Sanctuary Campus

Comparing immigration enforcement to “fugitive slave laws,” professors at a taxpayer-funded university in south Florida are demanding that the school protect illegal aliens by creating a “sanctuary campus.” Students at colleges around the nation have made similar requests to protect undocumented classmates after president-elect Donald Trump vowed to increase deportations and reverse an Obama administration measure that shields those brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

But the Florida professors are blazing the trail as the first faculty members to officially call for campus-wide sanctuary in the aftermath of the presidential election. They work at Florida International University (FIU), a public institution with 54,000 students, more than half of them Hispanic. One of the professors, Asia Eaton, teaches psychology and women’s and gender studies and the other, Jason Ritchie, anthropology. Dozens of other university staff members also signed the document making the sanctuary demand. It starts off like this: “Like many people in South Florida, we were caught off guard by the election.” It continues to state that Trump’s victory “laid bare the pervasive racism and sexism that have limited the life chances of too many Americans for too long. As a nation, we cannot continue to sweep these problems under the rug.”

The professors reveal that they are “deeply worried about the dangers of a Trump presidency” to the well-being of their diverse student body. They specifically mention an Obama amnesty measure known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which shields thousands of illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children “through no fault of their own” from deportation. In many cases, the so-called “dreamers” get driver’s licenses, work permits and discounted tuition at public universities such as FIU. During his campaign Trump said he would terminate DACA along with other Obama amnesty measures. The FIU professors point out that college presidents nationwide have determined that DACA is “both a moral imperative and a national necessity.” No further evidence is provided to substantiate that absurd claim, however.

As preposterous as this may sound, the demand gets even crazier when the professors compare the college sanctuary movement to safe havens that shielded individuals and institutions that refused to comply with fugitive slave laws in the 1800s. They refer to it as a tradition in the U.S. of providing safe-haven to vulnerable populations. “In that spirit, we call on our administration to declare Florida International University a sanctuary campus, develop a plan for protecting undocumented students, and refuse to cooperate with any efforts to identify, detain, or deport undocumented students, even if DACA is repealed or any other laws or policies change.” The document further alleges that students are “under attack” and they cannot remain silent.

Students—and some faculty—in dozens of colleges and universities around the country have asked that their fellow undocumented classmates be protected from immigration authorities, but administrations remain largely silent. In Illinois, many of the state’s public universities have been under pressure to declare themselves sanctuary campuses for illegal alien students but no official action has been taken. One of the state’s mainstream newspapers reported this week that the campuses have rejected the calls, instead outlining other (unofficial) ways they will offer protections. “The University of Illinois this week became the latest campus to dismiss the idea after thousands signed a petition asking school leaders to adopt the sanctuary label in an effort to protect undocumented students from being targeted for their citizenship status,” the article says. “A similar petition at Northwestern University also failed last month.”

Unrelated to this matter, but of interesting note is that two veteran FIU professors were convicted of spying for Cuba’s communist government over nearly three decades. The husband-and-wife duo, Carlos and Elsa Alvarez, got convicted in a Miami federal court in 2007. Carlos was sentenced to five years in prison for acting as an unregistered Cuban agent and Elsa got three years for harboring her husband’s illicit intelligence work and failing to report it to authorities.

illegal immigrants

With Election Day looming, some see it as their last chance to enter into America illegally if Donald Trump is elected president.

A flood of illegal immigrants has come into the country over the last couple of years, but this year has set all records.

Just the past couple of months, border patrol agents report a big increase in illegal crossings.

Right now it is like last call and those who can are literally running for the border.

Some people want to cross the border to make sure they are here before the wall is built if Trump wins, or before amnesty is handed out if Hillary wins.

The motivations behind the crossings are due to smugglers pushing extreme narratives to people looking to cross and telling them it is their last chance.

The false narrative is very effective right now and our border agents are claiming they are overwhelmed. Some of the agents on the ground are claiming 800 to 1,000 people being detained each night, and that is just one location in McAllen, Texas.

People wishing to cross over the border who don’t want to do it alone pay between $4,000 and $8,000 to smugglers for help.

No wonder the smugglers are telling everyone that this is their last chance.

The problem on our southern border is overwhelming.

Illegal immigration is something that Obama and his administration have actually encouraged by not doing anything to control our borders.

Obama has been responsible for a very large number of deportations, but those people can turn right back around and cross our border again.

Many people don’t really have any other option than to come to America, because their home countries are in such bad shape.

We should have a legal way to bring these people into our country instead of them paying $30,000 to cartels and smugglers to get their family of four across the border.

What do you think we should do with all the illegal immigrants in our country right now? Let us know in the comments below.

George Soros has been rumored to be part of the “global elite” that spends millions on politicians to secretly shape global policy, but now there is proof.

One of Clinton’s biggest lifetime donors is now connected to the flood of immigrants that are invading Europe.

In a leaked memo, Soros outlines how continuing the immigration crisis in Europe will benefit his global ambitions and how it will help the Democratic Party.

“The refugee crisis and the fear that the interests of migrants fleeing poverty, climate change, generalized violence, or natural disaster would be overlooked at these fora have generated a push from G77 countries to ensure other migration issues remain on the global agenda.”

Soros is a big proponent for amnesty; because the Republican Party is characterized as the anti-immigration party, majority of the immigrants that receive amnesty will vote Democrat.

States like Texas and Florida will go from red to blue and forever shift the political power in the United States. Coincidentally, George Soros is one of the biggest donors to the Democratic Party.

George was also recently connected to donating to organizations and Super PACs that protested and got violent at Trump rallies during the primary process.

The man is so determined to see his global elitist agenda work, he is willing to let the Syrian refugees suffer as long as possible to help his causes. Soros is willing to let cops and Trump supporters be threatened and in some cases beaten to help the Democrats win the election.

George Soros is banking big on Hillary Clinton and surly will be rewarded if she wins the White House.

Hillary hired Debbie Wasserman-Schultz after it was proven she tanked Bernie’s campaign to help Hillary during her time running the DNC. It is expected that George will have direct access to the Clinton Administration.

There is one thing that all the email, voicemail and memo leaks that have happened around Hillary Clinton in the past couple have months have proven, and that is that Hillary gives incredible access to people that pay-to-play. Even if that is George Soros who is more than willing to let millions of people suffer to see his agenda fulfilled.

What do you think about George Soros? Let us know in the comments below.

Weeks after granting illegal immigrants in Flint, Michigan a special reprieve from deportation over the area’s water crisis, the Obama administration has quietly expanded its boundless amnesty to award undocumented aliens with work authorization if they claim to be “battered spouses.” The administration appears to be getting quite creative to meet its goal of implementing a far-flung amnesty that will ultimately apply to all of the millions living in the U.S. illegally.

Judicial Watch has reported on this many times in the last few years. Besides the broad protection the president has offered illegal immigrants, he’s created a number of special categories to help and shield specific groups. Special amnesties have been created in the last few years for Haitians affected by the 2010 earthquake, illegal aliens affected by hurricane Sandy in 2012, Ebola in 2015 and floods or “severe weather,” earlier this year. Just last week the administration extended the “temporary” Ebola amnesty for illegal immigrants from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. In the announcement the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) writes that although there have been “significant improvements” the lingering effects of the Ebola Virus and “continued recovery challenges” support the extension, which protects illegal aliens from those countries for an additional six months.

Last month DHS implemented an amnesty initiative in Michigan at the behest of open-borders groups and pro-immigrant Spanish media in the aftermath of the Flint water crisis. The problem arose after a switch in 2014 in the city’s water source to save money. Soon complaints mounted that the water smelled and looked strange and academic researchers discovered that it was toxic. The feds stepped in, supplying the area with free bottled water and special filters to install at home until the local water supply is clean. For weeks immigrant rights groups complained that residents had to show identification to receive their free goods from the government and illegal aliens were being left out.

National Spanish-language media outlets blasted the Obama administration for discriminating against illegal aliens and reported that undocumented immigrants weren’t getting help for fear of being deported. DHS responded by guaranteeing that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would not conduct enforcement operations at or near locations distributing clean water in Flint or surrounding areas. “Moreover, DHS officials do not and will not pose as individuals providing water-related information or distributing clean water as part of any enforcement activities,” the statement assures. The agency’s priority is to support state and local government efforts to distribute clean water, the statement says, adding that DHS stands “ready to assist those in need.”

This month’s amnesty du jour will shield illegal aliens who assert they or their children have been battered or subjected to extreme cruelty perpetrated by a spouse. “Abused spouses of nonimmigrants who were admitted to the U.S. under visas for foreign government diplomats and officials, specialty occupation workers, temporary and nonagricultural workers, and others are eligible to apply,” according to the DHS announcement.

The determination of what evidence is credible and how much weight is given to such evidence is within the discretion of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the DHS agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. In the announcement USCIS notes that it will “consider any and all credible evidence relevant to the application.” Those granted battered spouse amnesty will be rewarded with employment authorization so they can start a new life in the U.S.

Besides protecting small subgroups of illegal aliens from deportation, the administration has also implemented a broad amnesty initiative that Judicial Watch has reported on extensively. Even after a federal judge blocked the president’s amnesty order last year, the administration continued working behind the scenes to quickly award multi-million-dollar contracts to firms that could expeditiously process millions of illegal immigrants.

The court ruling didn’t stop the administration from moving forward with its plan to seal large contracts with hundreds of companies that will process millions of illegal immigrants as soon as possible. In fact, JW obtained the pricing spreadsheets that listed tens of thousands of work hours involving the processing of millions of illegal aliens, including tasks such as program management, file operations and maintenance as well as Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) scanning.

As the Obama administration welcomes throngs of “displaced” nationals from terrorist countries, an Iraqi refugee granted residency after coming to the U.S. as a teenager has been charged with supporting the jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The once-displaced refugee, Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, is 24 years old now and lives in Houston, Texas. He tried to supply material support to ISIL and lied about his ties to the terrorist organization and his weapons training when applying to become a U.S. citizen, according to a federal indictment issued this month. In 2011, when Al Hardan was 17, the U.S. graciously took in his family much the same way the Obama administration is welcoming droves of Syrians and nationals of Yemen, an Al Qaeda hotbed. Besides having close ties to terrorist organizations Al Hardan has received automatic machine gun training, according to the feds.

The indictment is scarce in details, probably for national security reasons, but it’s the culmination of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Houston Police Department. Al Hardan, who attended school in Jordan and doesn’t speak very good English, was arrested in the Harris County apartment he shares with his 18-year-old wife and infant child. He appeared in a Houston federal courtroom last week and has a bond hearing and arraignment scheduled for this week. A local newspaper report says Al Hardan and his family live on food stamps, compliments of American taxpayers. His defense attorney will also be financed by taxpayers.

Al Hardan’s indictment comes just weeks after Texas officials sued the federal government to stop it from resettling Syrian refugees in the state over security concerns. Judicial Watch has reported that a number of high-ranking Homeland Security officials have admitted there’s no way to screen the new arrivals from the war-torn Muslim nation that’s a hotbed of terrorism. In fact a director with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) told Congress a few months ago that his agency has no method of vetting the new refugees because the Syrian government doesn’t have an intelligence database to run checks against. Previous to that, FBI Assistant Director Michael Steinbach confirmed that the government has no system to properly screen Syrian refugees.

This hasn’t stopped the Obama administration from taking in thousands of Syrian refugees and dispersing them throughout the country. Following the Paris terrorist attacks, officials in municipalities and states across the U.S. launched efforts to stop Syrians from resettling in their jurisdiction because one of the bombers had entered Europe as a Syrian refugee. After hearing that alarming development, a poll found that a majority of Americans opposed admitting Syrian refugees into the United States. In the poll, a majority of Americans also said they’re not confident in the government’s screening process to weed out possible terrorists.

That’s why Texas sued the U.S. to keep Syrian refugees out of the state. The lawsuit accuses federal officials of violating the Refugee Act of 1980, which requires the government to consult regularly with the state regarding the placement of refugees. Following Al Hardan’s indictment Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement saying “the arrest in Houston of an Iraqi refugee for suspicion of terrorist activities is a troubling revelation – especially in light of the President’s insistence on placing further refugees in Texas. My office will continue to press for the right of Texans to ensure that terrorists are not being placed in our communities.”

Always on the prowl for opportunities to grant illegal immigrants reprieve, the Obama administration is capitalizing on the recent floods to reward undocumented aliens in the affected regions with a special “severe weather immigration relief.”

The measure was recently announced by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)—that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. It appears that in the last few years USCIS has been preoccupied with shielding illegal aliens who may not be candidates for the president’s broader executive amnesty initiatives from deportation. Judicial Watch has reported on this extensively over the years, publishing articles on the administration’s special hurricane, earthquake and Ebola amnesty programs.

Now we have “severe weather” amnesty for those who live in the Southern and Midwestern United States. Massive flooding has battered the region and rivers from Texas to Illinois have surged out of control. At least 31 flood-related deaths have been reported, mostly in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Illinois and Missouri and thousands have been evacuated. Undoubtedly it’s a dire situation that clearly deserves emergency help from the federal government. But extending special immigration rights seems like a bit much, though. The administration appears to be getting incredibly creative as it finds new reasons to shield immigrants from deportation.

Here’s how it works; the U.S. government offers immigration relief measures that may help people affected by unforeseen circumstances such as the recent severe weather and flooding in areas of the southern and Midwestern United States, according to the USCIS. At the request of immigrants living in the region, the agency will “re-parole” individuals, expedite employment authorization and change the nonimmigrant status of individuals “even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired.” That essentially means illegal immigrants will get reprieve. A special note directs immigrants to mention that “severe weather created a need for the requested relief.”

This emergency amnesty will be granted under a program reserved for “special situations,” USCIS explains in a separate document. “Sometimes natural catastrophes and other extreme situations can occur that are beyond your control,” the agency states. “These events can affect your USCIS application, petition or immigration status. We cannot anticipate these events, but will do our best to help you get the benefits for which you qualify.” The agency offers similar benefits for immigrants who claim they can’t return to their home country due to “civil unrest” or “severe environmental disasters.” Under those provisions, large chunks of the world would qualify including the entire Middle East, practically all of Mexico and most of Central America.

Indeed, in the last few years we’ve seen droves of illegal immigrants benefit from these special initiatives, which are sometimes classified as Temporary Protective Status (TPS) though they end up becoming permanent. In 2014 the Obama administration extended TPS for tens of thousands of Hondurans and Nicaraguans because a hurricane (Mitch) hit the Central American countries nearly two decades ago. Tens of thousands of Haitians continue to benefit from protected status in the U.S. as well, thanks to a 2010 earthquake.

Hillary Clinton is working hard to get the Hispanic vote. While a Gallup poll is putting her as the favored democrat for Latinos, Jeb Bush is a major contender for those votes. It is not secret that he has a very favorable stance on immigration and is even campaigning in Spanish. His wife, Columba Bush is an attractive First Lady for Hispanics looking to have a relatable face in the White House.

Since it is too late for her to find a sap looking for a green card to add a few popularity points to her tab, Hillary is taking a different approach.

Her Latino outreach director is a former illegal immigrant who still cannot vote. She emigrated illegally to the United States from Peru for “medical treatment” and has found favor in the eyes of the democratic hopeful.

The 27 year old, Lorella Praeli, is the beneficiary of an amnesty program put into action by the Obama administration. She has a green card but the terms of the amnesty do not permit her to vote. Her mother is still a criminal at large and continues to live here illegally.

The Los Angeles Times released a story on Praeli and details her “start in politics” as being as far back as elementary school. Kids would make fun of her and she would write out the names that they called her and give them over to the “school police”. Apparently, wanting justice has not carried over into adulthood.

In fact, one of her “notable contributions” to the Clinton campaign has been to encourage staffers to tweet unflattering things about Donald Trump. So, even the idea that name calling is bad did not follow her past elementary school.

The campaign knows that Praeli is not a citizen so they are using her to reach those Hispanics that are already citizens or those who are on pace to become voters by the election.

Praeli says that she wants to focus on immigration and to “create a moral dilemma” when people talk about illegal immigrants. She would rather the United States see them as simply, “undocumented”; like guests at a limited engagement whom have simply misplaced their invitations. She wants amnesty for those living here illegally, like she herself has gained through the Obama administration’s programs for coddling illegals.

Clinton has made sure to spend time in the limelight talking to and about illegal immigrants. Does she really want what is best for them or does she just want as many votes as she can get? I think we all know how much she is going to need them in 2016.

An illegal alien, who just pleaded guilty to charges that he secretly filmed a woman in a Texas Walmart bathroom, might be set free.

Jose Santos Argueta, 32, was arrested on Valentine’s Day, after a woman noticed a cell phone on the floor under her stall in the woman’s bathroom. She quickly realized she could see herself on the screen being filmed and contacted security. Argueta had been hiding in the next stall.

When Argueta was detained and gave permission for police to search his phone, they found the video of his fellow Walmart patron.

Argueta has been in jail for 243 days since his arrested–and since he was only sentenced to 270 days with credit for time served, he’s set to be released soon.

But, according to Breitbart Texas, which first broke the story, Argueta he likely won’t be sent back to his native Mexico when he’s released–even though the federal government placed him in an immigration hold.

Because of Obama’s Priority Enforcement Program, it’s likely that Argueta wouldn’t be considered a dangerous enough criminal to get deported–meaning he’d be able to walk the streets of the United States, even with his peeping conviction.

“He certainly could be released,” Green County Sheriff Davis Jones said, in an interview with Breitbart Texas. “We have had several people who were convicted and turned over to federal authorities released. It is a very real concern.”

But Sheriff Jones claims the problem isn’t the border patrol–it’s Washington. “The problem,” Jones explained, “comes from the orders they receive from higher up.”

Just when it seemed like President Obama’s immigration policies couldn’t possibly get worse, the administration is offering “temporary” amnesty to nationals of an Islamic Middle Eastern country well known as an Al Qaeda breeding ground.

You can’t make this stuff up! The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is offering Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to illegal aliens from Yemen, headquarters of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). In its latest Country Reports on Terrorism, the State Department reveals that AQAP militants carried out hundreds of attacks including suicide bombers, vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs), ambushes, kidnappings and targeted assassinations. The media has also documented this for years with one in-depth report confirming that “Yemen has emerged as the breeding grounds for some of the most high-profile plans to attack the U.S. homeland.”

Why would the U.S. extend to a humanitarian measure designed to temporarily shield illegal immigrants from deportation during emergencies to citizens of this notorious terrorist hub? A stunned Homeland Security official told Judicial Watch that this creates “obvious dangers” because the U.S. government has a “total inability to screen, ID or verify the records” of Yemeni nationals. Remember that the convicted terrorist who planned to blow up an American passenger jet over Detroit on Christmas in 2009 trained in Yemen and the plot was organized by Al Qaeda leaders in Yemen. Also of interest is the fact that at least a dozen terrorists freed from the U.S. military compound in Guantanamo have joined Al Qaeda in Yemen. Last year a study published by the RAND Corporation concluded that the most significant threat to the United States comes from terrorist groups operating in Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

None of this seems to matter to the officials running DHS, the monstrous agency created after 9/11 to prevent another terrorist attack. Obama’s DHS Secretary, Jeh Johnson, cites the “ongoing armed conflict” in Yemen for deciding to grant the country TPS. “Yemen is experiencing widespread conflict and a resulting severe humanitarian emergency, and requiring Yemeni nationals in the United States to return to Yemen would pose a serious threat to their personal safety,” states the DHS announcement made public this month. It assures that individuals with certain criminal records or who pose a threat to national security are not eligible for TPS, though JW’s government source maintains there’s no reliable way to check this. The TPS supposedly expires in 18 months, but we’ve all seen that these temporary amnesty measures get extended indefinitely.

Just a few weeks ago Judicial Watch reported that the Obama administration extended TPS for Haitians for the fifth time since an earthquake hit the Caribbean island in 2010. When Obama’s first DHS Secretary, Janet Napolitano, granted the first Haitian TPS, she stated that it was intended to provide a “temporary refuge for Haitian nationals who are currently in the United States and whose personal safety would be endangered by returning to Haiti is part of this Administration’s continuing efforts to support Haiti’s recovery.” Five years later DHS stated that “following consultations with other federal agencies” it had determined that “current conditions in Haiti support extending the designation period for current TPS beneficiaries.”

Haitian illegal immigrants aren’t the only ones who have enjoyed the long-term benefits of the special measure intended to grant only temporary reprieve. Last year the Obama administration extended TPS for tens of thousands of Hondurans and Nicaraguans. The order was originally issued more than a decade and a half ago after a hurricane (Mitch) hit the Central American countries and has been renewed over and over again, illustrating that there’s nothing temporary about these measures. Less than a year ago the Obama administration created an 18-month TPS for African Ebola nations, including Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

Having had enough of the Obama Administration’s changing explanations over its failure to obey his order to stop “Executive Amnesty” from going forward, Federal District Court Judge Andrew Hanen has ordered Department of Homeland (DHS) Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to personally appear in court and explain why he should not be held in contempt for violating a court ordered injunction.

Judge Andrew Hanen issued his latest order last week in a lawsuit filed by more than two dozen states led by Texas to halt President Obama’s executive amnesty order from being implemented.

President Obama announced his “Executive Amnesty” order last November that then Texas Attorney General and now Governor Greg Abbott filed a lawsuit to stop on December 3 – a lawsuit that led Judge Hanen to issue his injunction against implementation of “Executive Amnesty” in the first place.

Hanen later called the Obama administration’s response to his February injunction as “unacceptable” and “unprofessional” and that he was “shocked and surprised at the cavalier attitude the Government has taken” towards it.

Judge Hanen was particularly concerned by the federal government’s failure to explain why DHS issued 2,000 work permits to illegal aliens even after his injunction was in place. The Justice Department made that announcement in May, but DHS and its sub-agencies have not yet explained why applications for the permits were approved.

Hanen says that the government must answer that question to his satisfaction by the end of the month or else appear in his court on Aug. 19.

“Each individual Defendant must attend and be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of Court,” Hanen ordered. “In addition to the individual Defendants, the Government shall bring all relevant witnesses on this topic as the Court will not continue this matter to a later date.”

In addition to DHS Secretary Johnson, the list of defendants ordered to appear includes the heads of Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Issuing 2,000 work permits to illegal aliens after the injunction is not the first time the Obama administration has toyed with Judge Hanen over compliance with his immigration orders.

Last March, Justice Department attorneys said in a midnight court filing that DHS had actually granted three-year deferrals to more than 100,000 illegal aliens between the president’s amnesty announcement and the court’s February 16 injunction.

This happened despite the fact that DHS told Judge Hanen that no illegal aliens would receive relief until late February at the latest. The government said that the benefits were granted by accident.

Obama’s original November amnesty order was meant to extend amnesty to up to five million illegal aliens that aren’t already covered by his 2012 policy, Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). His most recent move expands on DACA and shields some parents of legal permanent residents from deportation.

If Judge Hanen finds DHS Secretary Johnson and other high administration officials involved in violating the court order in contempt, the individuals could face administrative sanctions and/or the loss of their law licenses.
