Illegal Immigration

What do you want me to do, prosecute criminals?

After committing two crimes state prosecutors agreed to reduced charges against the African immigrant who recently murdered two Massachusetts doctors, allowing him to dodge deportation. This crucial information is being ignored by the mainstream media but a Boston newspaper exposed it this week and it’s especially alarming because it appears to be part of a movement by local officials nationwide to help illegal immigrants avoid removal. Earlier this month Judicial Watch reported that state prosecutors in two major U.S. cities have ordered staff not to charge illegal immigrants with certain crimes because it could get the offenders deported. It’s an effort to help alien criminals avert “collateral immigration consequences,” and the fallout could be catastrophic.

In the recent massacre, an immigrant from Guinea-Bissau, on the west coast of Africa, slashed the throats of two local doctors, 49-year-old Richard Field and 38-year-old Lina Bolaños, inside the south Boston condo they shared. The crime scene was gruesome, according to local news reports, and the doctors’ bodies were bound at the hands. The walls were covered in blood and the assailant, Bampumim Teixeira, wrote a message of retribution on the wall.

Teixeira’s ex-girlfriend told a local media outlet that he had been released from a “house of correction” just weeks before he murdered the doctors. Several media reports included Teixeira’s criminal history and that he had pleaded guilty to larceny, but extremely relevant information has been withheld.

It turns out that prosecutors in Suffolk County, where the crimes occurred, went along with a plea deal that allowed Teixeira to avoid deportation. The local newspaper that broke the story got ahold of an audio recording of the hearing in which Teixeira’s attorney and a state prosecutor presented a joint motion to reduce the charges against him. At that point, Teixeira had been charged with two counts of unarmed robbery and the backdoor deal let him get off easy with a charge of larceny from a person. Last summer the African immigrant was arrested for robbing a Boston bank that he also admitted robbing back in 2014.

Here’s an excerpt from the news article: “The prosecution and defense also recommended Teixeira serve 364 days in jail — nine months to serve, credit for 78 days already served, and the balance suspended for three years. They also recommended his first robbery case be marked “guilty filed,” a resolution that exempted him from immigration penalties.”

Under federal law legal U.S. residents can be deported if they commit an aggravated felony with a prison term of at least 12 months. Under the deal, Suffolk County prosecutors cut with Teixeira, he got a 364-day sentence, which was a day short. Immigrants with green cards can also get deported if they’re convicted of crimes involving “moral turpitude,” the news article points out, but Teixeira’s 2014 robbery case was resolved as “guilty filed,” which allows a judge, with prosecutor and defense consent, to forgo imposing a sentence on a defendant. The official statement from the Suffolk District Attorney’s office is to deny that this thug received any sort of leniency to prevent him from suffering immigration consequences, though the facts sure seem to contradict it.

It appears to be part of a broad effort by local prosecutors around the country to shield illegal immigrants who commit crimes from federal authorities. Judicial Watch’s report just a few weeks ago focused on new policies implemented by the Brooklyn, New York District Attorney’s office and the Baltimore, Maryland State Attorney’s office. Both local prosecutors issued orders directing lawyers in their office to think twice before charging illegal immigrants with crimes because it could get them deported. Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, elected to uphold and enforce criminal laws, wrote in his order that the goal is “minimizing collateral immigration consequences of criminal convictions” and avoiding “disproportionate collateral consequences, such as deportation, while maintaining public safety.”

In a similar directive Baltimore Chief Deputy State Attorney Michael Schatzow told his staff to think twice before charging illegal aliens with petty crimes because President Trump’s deportation efforts “have increased the potential collateral consequences to certain immigrants of minor, non-violent criminal conduct.”

Doh!

The federal agency responsible for deporting illegal immigrants is in serious trouble, with overwhelmed officers that can’t keep up with monstrous workloads and repeatedly lose track of hardcore criminals inside the United States. Hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens with criminal records have been released by authorities in the U.S. and the Homeland Security agency responsible for keeping track of them, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is doing a miserable job, according to a new audit made public this week by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General.

As of August 2016, ICE was supervising about 2.2 million aliens released into communities throughout the nation. Officially they are known as appearing on the “non-detained docket.” About 368,574 are convicted criminals, the watchdog report states. To put things in perspective the inspector general reveals that in 2015 ICE removed 235,413 individuals of which 139,368 were convicted criminals. A surge in illegal immigrants under the Obama administration pushed matters into crisis mode. Deportation officers are so overworked that they often lose track of dangerous illegal aliens with serious criminal histories. This includes individuals who represent critical national security threats, according to the federal probe.

ICE does not ensure that deportation officer workloads are balanced and achievable, the report states, and the agency doesn’t provide clear policies and procedures or sufficient training and tools. Additionally, ICE fails to effectively prepare its workforce to handle complicated deportations. The result is an agency that operates in chaos and compromises the well-being of unsuspecting communities nationwide, not to mention national security. “ICE does not effectively manage the supervision and deportation of nondetained aliens,” the report says. “Effective management requires preparing and deploying the right number of employees to achieve program and policy objectives.” Furthermore, the agency doesn’t bother collecting and analyzing data about employee workloads to allocate staff judiciously and determine achievable caseloads, according to the inspector general.

As an example, the report reveals that ICE deportation officers in the District of Columbia average over 10,000 cases each and those in Atlanta, Georgia over 5,000. One ICE agent cited in the report said this: “You might work 18 hours a day, but you still won’t get caught up.” Inspectors visited four key field offices and determined that the management deficiencies and unresolved obstacles make it difficult for the feds to deport aliens expeditiously. “ICE is almost certainly not deporting all the aliens who could be deported and will likely not be able to keep up with growing numbers of deportable aliens,” the report states. This is hardly earth-shattering news, but it’s still alarming to confirm the large number of criminals that fall through the cracks.

The investigation is a follow up to a related probe surrounding ICE’s negligence in failing to deport an illegal immigrant with a serious criminal record at least three times, allowing him to murder a young woman in Connecticut. The Haitian man, Jean Jacques, had completed a 15-year sentence for murder and was supposed to be removed from the country after leaving prison. Instead, he remained in the U.S. and viciously butchered the woman to death in her own apartment. ICE claims that Haiti simply refused to take Jacques—on three different occasions. In a scathing report issued last summer the DHS Inspector General blasted ICE for not doing more to remove Jacques from the country and failing to contact the Haitian consulate in Miami, Florida to request a travel document after Jacques’ third repatriation rejection. “There is no record that ICE ERO (Enforcement and Removal Operations) made this request,” the report states, adding that “ERO officials had previously made hundreds of similar requests to the Haitian consulates for travel documents without success and we have no reason to believe that the Jacques matter would have been different.”

Sessions

Urging prosecutors to crack down on undocumented immigrants who are known criminals, on Tuesday, the Department of Justice instructed employees to step up “criminal immigration enforcement.”

In a speech to Customs and Border Protection, along the US-Mexico border, in Nogales, Arizona, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Justice Department will add 50 immigration judges this year, and 75 in the next year.

“We mean international criminal organizations that turn cities and suburbs into war zones, that rape and kill innocent civilians, and who profit by smuggling poison and other human beings across our borders. Depravity and violence are their calling cards, including brutal machete attacks, even beheadings,” Sessions said. “They threaten the very integrity of our nations and our hemisphere. It is here on this sliver of land, on this border, where we first take our stand. It is a direct threat to our legal system and to our peace and prosperity.”

Sessions had planned to say “where we first take our stand against this filth,” but slightly strayed from his prepared speech. His line quickly spread on social media. However, it is not uncommon for Sessions to go through his speeches as planned.

“In this fight, I am here to tell you, the brave men and women of the Customs and Border Protection: We hear you. We hear your concerns. We have your back. Under the president’s leadership and guided by his executive orders, we will secure this border and bring the full weight of both the immigration courts and the federal enforcement and prosecutor to combat this attack on our national security and our sovereignty,” he said.

During the speech, Sessions said that he has directed federal prosecutors to “consider for prosecution” any crimes including the harboring or transferring of undocumented immigrants. Among other offenses included in the directive for prosecution are assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated identity theft, and document fraud.

Sessions announced that any undocumented immigrants who enter the US illegally, after being removed will be “referred for felony prosecution.”

Furthermore, the attorney general said that the department’s focus under this administration would be to secure the border, dismantle drug cartels and prosecute criminal undocumented workers.

“We will deploy a multifaceted approach.  We are going to interdict your drugs on the way into this country, your money on the way out, and investigate and prosecute your trafficking networks to the fullest extent of the law,” he said.

pardons

Obama is moving out of the White House soon, but before he goes he will be able to offer his pardons and millions of illegal immigrants are anxiously waiting.

When Obama turns over the presidency to Donald Trump, the biggest story on the news that day might be his pardons.

Jesse Jackson is coming out and saying that Obama needs to pardon Hillary, and of all the pardons, one for Hillary is most likely.

The millions of Americans that think Hillary is a criminal and want to see her behind bars may never get that chance if Obama pardons her, but who else might he pardon?

Can he pardon illegal immigrants? Well, technically he can.

President Carter offered a sweeping pardon to anyone that was in violation of the Military Selective Service Act between a nine-year period.

Obama could do something similar this year for Illegal immigrants, but how it is enforced could be a nightmare.

There is no specific law to pardon from, and he doesn’t have the names of each illegal immigrant.

The Immigration and Nationality Act isn’t like the Military Selective Service Act. The INA is a very large set of laws that would fill a book. The MSSA is a very simple and concise law.

The other question is how many immigrants could he pardon?

Some believe that he could pardon the parents of citizens or it could be more sweeping and allow all illegal immigrants in the US to be immune to certain immigration laws.

Obama could possibly turn the United States into a Sanctuary City and there won’t be that much Trump could do about it.

Illegal immigrants all over the country, especially the Latino community, are doing all they can to persuade Obama to grant them a pardon.

If something drastic happens then there could be a lot of backlash, but it could all happen while Obama is on the golf course.

The fallout from massive pardons that could affect between two and 12 million illegal immigrants would be massive and further throw this country into chaos.

Do you think Obama will offer sweeping pardons for illegal immigrants? Let us know in the comments below.

obama

Obama looks like he has completely given up a couple of months from the end of his term by now saying that Illegals can vote.

Yes you read that right, Obama basically told illegal immigrants that it is ok to vote like a citizen and nobody will come and get you.

Don’t believe me? Watch the video where Obama actually says it.

(Sorry for the crude video, it’s the only one we could find.)

This kind of talk is worrisome coming from the person who is sworn to defend our Constitution.

Non-citizens cannot vote in the general election anywhere. That is the law.

Hearing the president talk about letting illegal, Hispanic non-citizens vote, then that Hispanics are breaking all records for early voting should make you worried for the voting process in this country.

We have enough problems with this election and we don’t need Obama telling people who are not legally allowed to vote to cast a ballot.

Apparently that whole, “They go low, we go high” thing is just for speeches.

Do you think there is anything that Obama won’t do to help Hillary win? Let us know in the comments below.

gun shows

According to recent reports along the U.S. border with Mexico, the number of illegal immigrants trying to enter the United States is again spiking, and could rival the wave of illegal crossings in 2014. Facing this problem, one would hope that a priority for federal immigration officials would be to focus on employing new technologies to improve chances for catching criminals who have thus come into our country. Federal immigration officials, however, appear more interested in using new-fangled technology to intimidate and harass American citizens who decide simply to drop by lawful gun shows.

As discovered in an analysis of government emails by the Wall Street Journal, a joint program between local law enforcement and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials has been using license plate-reading technology to track gun show attendees. According to the Journal, the program dates back to 2010, and likely spread far beyond the original target area of southern California. It is possible that if you have attended a gun show in any state in the last the half-decade, your personal information is now stored in a government database.

To make matters worse, ICE apparently has no explicit policy in place limiting the use of license plate readers, or how information gathered thus far is shared with other agencies, or how it is stored and for how long. As we’ve seen previously in states like Maryland, which allegedly used concealed carry permit data shared with them through the shady and unaccountable network of intelligence “Fusion Centers,” it is conceivable that personal information collected from gun shows can be, and likely will be, used to target innocent Americans now and in the future. After all, a person would not even have to purchase a firearm at one of these gun shows to end up in a law enforcement database.

Such schemes attempting to link gun ownership to border crime is all too familiar for an Administration responsible for the “gun-walking” debacle known as “Fast and Furious.” But this latest revelation is a frightening reminder of just how far the Obama Administration is willing to go to chill law-abiding citizens’ exercise of their Second Amendment-guaranteed rights.

President Bill Clinton’s support for gun control measures was well-known. And, during the first two years of his Administration, when the Congress remained under firm Democratic Party control, Clinton pressed his anti-Second Amendment agenda through legislative measures; resulting in the so-called “Brady Bill” which he signed into law in 1993, and the “Assault Weapons Ban” the following year.

Barack Obama, however, not having a compliant Congress to work with (other than during his first two years, from 2009 to 2010), clearly prefers sneakier ways to move his anti-gun agenda forward. Thus, the use of federal regulatory agencies with no clear or even lawful jurisdiction over firearms, to limit the Second Amendment. Abusing the regulatory powers of the FDIC to pressure banks into severing ties with companies that engage in lawful firearms transactions in “Operation Choke Point,” is but the most outrageous example of this approach; there are numerous others, ranging from those involving the departments of State, Health and Human Services, or the Centers for Disease Control.

The recently revealed license plate-reading scheme, however, is a particularly nefarious tactic by the Obama Administration, insofar as it indiscriminately ensnares anyone who attends a gun show for any reason. All such persons become suspects in the eyes of law enforcement officials; including people who might merely be shopping for knives, or who had dropped by to view or participate in non-gun related exhibits popular at such shows.

This program illustrates the fundamental problem with dragnets such as these employed by ICE: potential “guilt” is determined not by any evidence of criminal forethought or activity, but by algorithms and connecting dots that fit the government’s perception of “suspicious activity”; even if such activity is completely legal and constitutional. For example, it is not far-fetched to envision that a person tracked at a gun show, and then tracked again at a school, could suddenly find himself surrounded by SWAT teams ready to shoot what the government’s computer program concludes is a possible killer, but is in reality nothing more sinister than a father picking up a child at school after dropping by a lawful gun show.

The government may see its gun show surveillance program as a clever way to catch gun “runners,” but it is simply another way to chill our Second Amendment rights.

record number

There are a record number of Hispanics that believe Trump will win the presidency and they are playing the odds.

Hundreds of thousands of central and South Americans are flocking to America illegally, because they think Trump is going to win and build that wall.

They want to get to America before robots take all the jobs.

The numbers that came across in August were just slightly off the all-time high in 2014, but there is another scarier record that was broken.

Unaccompanied minors that were taken into custody spiked to an all-time high.

Broken family units are also among the high numbers.

Right now the southern border is a mess and it is getting worse.

Normally during the summer months and especially in August, we see the number of people crossing the border dramatically drop due to the summer heat.

This year is different. The numbers of families, kids and individuals from South and Central America that are entering our country illegally have continued to climb almost yearly.

If they didn’t think that Trump would win and build the wall, then they wouldn’t make the trip during the summer to beat the election.

sanctuary cities

The Obama administration rewards sanctuary states, counties and cities that shield violent illegal immigrants from deportation with hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants and one of the biggest recipients recently made headlines for protecting a serial criminal who murdered a young woman. The money flows through the Department of Justice (DOJ), the agency responsible for enforcing the law and defending the interests of the United States. The DOJ is also charged with providing federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime, according to its mission statement, and seeking just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior.

Apparently this doesn’t apply to local governments that support the president’s broad open borders policies, even when they violate federal law. The DOJ doled out $342,168,401 to 10 sanctuary states and cities that proudly reject federal claims for criminal illegal aliens earmarked for removal, according to the agency’s independent watchdog. Among them is Connecticut, a trailblazer in the sanctuary movement that received more than $69 million in grants from the DOJ. Connecticut has long protected illegal immigrants with sanctuary policies and even offers them special drivers’ licenses, known as Drive Only. The state also gives illegal aliens discounted tuition at public colleges and universities and authorities work hard to restrict the feds from deporting illegal immigrants. Last year an illegal immigrant who had spent 17 years in prison for attempted murder stabbed a 25-year-old woman to death in Norwich, a city of about 40,000 residents. The murderer had been earmarked for deportation at least three times.

California, also a renowned sanctuary state that offers illegal immigrants a number of taxpayer-funded perks, topped the list with $132,409,635 in DOJ grants. Judicial Watch has investigated the state’s illegal sanctuary policies for years and back in 2008 launched a California public records request with the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department to obtain the arrest and booking information on Edwin Ramos, an illegal alien from El Salvador who murdered three innocent American citizens. Ramos was a member of a renowned violent street gang and had been convicted of two felonies as a juvenile (a gang-related assault on a bus passenger and the attempted robbery of a pregnant woman) yet he was allowed to remain in the country. Last year Judicial Watch obtained records showing that violent crime—including murder and rape—in the Bay area has skyrocketed since the San Francisco Sheriff and City Council expanded illegal alien sanctuary policies in 2013.

Under the ordinance San Francisco law enforcement agencies are required to ignore most U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers. Judicial Watch is also investigating whether the city violated the law again with its sanctuary policy that led to the release of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant deported five times who gunned down Kate Steinle at one of the most popular tourist spots in San Francisco.

Two cities—New York and Chicago—got $60,091,942 and $28,523,222 respectively from the DOJ and Philadelphia followed with $16,505,312. South Florida’s Miami-Dade County received $10,778,815, Milwaukee, Wisconsin got $7,539,572, Cook County, Illinois $6,018,544, Clark County, Nevada $6,257,9851 and Orleans Parish, Louisiana $4,737,964. In some cases elected officials in these municipalities brag about defying federal immigration laws. One, the mayor of Chicago, is mentioned in the DOJ Inspector General report for publicly stating: “We are not going to turn people over to ICE, and we are not going to check their immigration status.” The city also prohibits employees from cooperating with federal immigration authorities, the report says.

Other recipients of our taxpayer dollars do the same with no consequences. The Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office has an “ICE Procedures” policy that states the agency shall not initiate any immigration status investigation into individuals in their custody or provide the feds with information on an inmate’s release date or address.

Philadelphia’s mayor issued an executive order stating that the pending release of the subject of an ICE immigration detainer shall not be provided to the agency unless the person has been convicted of a felony and New York enacted a law years ago restricting jail personnel from communicating with ICE regarding an inmate’s release date, incarceration status or court dates. The law resulted in ICE closing its office on Riker’s Island and ceasing operations on any other NYC Department of Corrections property, the report reveals. It’s beyond comprehension that these law-breaking local governments are being rewarded with federal funds distributed by the agency responsible for enforcing the law.

wall

Last summer when Donald Trump declared that he wanted to build a wall on our southern border, he started going up in the polls and critics got angry.

The controversial wall that Donald wants to build and have Mexico pay for has galvanized many Hispanics against Trump.

Violent protests with Hispanics holding signs saying “F*CK TRUMP”, have done little to stop the GOP nominee.

Now, one artist is taking a different approach to stand against Trump’s wall.

The artist Plastic Jesus is believed to have built a wall around the Hollywood star of Donald Trump. The wall even has barbed wire and little signs on it warning people to “keep out”.

The walled star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a big social media hit. People are stopping to take pictures and to share it on Instagram and Facebook.

If you don’t like Trump, this is a much more effective way of voicing your opinion than just yelling, “F*UCK TRUMP” as seen in this video. (CAUTION STRONG LANGUAGE)

What do you think of the wall around Donald Trump’s star? Let us know in the comments below.

Texas Border

When it comes to reporting and news, Alex Jones and his Info Warriors are not the most respected journalists in America. Often focusing on conspiracy theories and fringe news, Alex Jones has somewhat of a bad reputation.

That doesn’t mean that he is wrong.

When Alex sent some reporters to our southern border, he had hoped to get some footage of illegals just walking into America to prove is his point that the borders are wide open.

Instead of getting some good footage, the reporters were arrested and detained.

They were taken into federal custody after having permission by two other agencies working on the border.

See the dramatic explanation from the people involved.

The big question is why where they detained?

What is on the border that the feds don’t want us to see? If Alex Jones is right, then the government is facilitating an open border to receive as many migrants that arrive.

If the feds are right, they were just protecting the border.

The video highlights how little we actually know about our southern border. How many people are actually coming in and why is the information being kept from us?

There are reports that more people have already crossed into America through the southern border so far this year than all of last year.

Illegal immigration is a real problem. The scary thing is we may not know how big of a problem it really is, especially if reporters are being arrested.

What do you think is happening at our southern border? Let us know in the comments below.
