Lawmakers, Border agents call for immediate deportations of ‘Obama kids’

During the Sunday morning news shows, a number of Republicans and advocates for legal immigration called on President Barack Obama to deport the children — and adults hiding among them — as they amass at the Texas border and that deportation should to take place immediately.

What’s turned into a full-fledged national crisis has led the Obama administration officials to pretend it’s struggling to maintain the overwhelmed detention and processing systems and claim that they may deport some but extend asylum laws for others, according toRep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, who appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Knowing that David Gregory enjoys verbal confrontations with Republicans, Rep. Labrador, who is Latino, said, “I kept thinking that you need to change your slogan at the beginning of your show,” Labrador stated. “Instead of, ‘If it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press,’ it should be ‘If it’s Sunday, it’s another administration official making stuff up on Meet the Press.’ It’s really shameful.”

President Obama and his Democratic Party minions have argued that increased flow of border crossings is the result of deteriorating conditions in Central America. But Congressman Labrador and other GOP critics, blamed Obama’s “Dreamers” executive order for initiating a human tsunami.

“It’s not by accident that these people suddenly show up at practically the same time. There are plane loads of illegal aliens flying into the United States. It’s another example of Obama’s lawlessness,” said political strategist Michael Baker.

“The thing this administration needs to do is immediately deport these families, these children,” Labrador said on “Meet the Press:. “I know it sounds harsh, I know it sounds difficult. But they’re creating a crisis.”

Meanwhile on ABC’s “This Week,” the commissioner of Customs and Border Protection claimed in an interview that the illegal aliens flooding the Texas border from Mexico are no danger to Americans, despite reports of teenagers wearing “gang tats” (tattoos).

CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske told the interviewer that he is “confident that we have the resources” to deal with the increased border traffic and that the Department of Homeland Security’s Secretary Jeh Johnson deployed an extra 150 agents to the Rio Grande Valley in addition to the 115 agents that were already moving in.

“The American people are supposed to take comfort in 265 more Border agents sent to deal with thousands of illegal border crossings? We sent more men and women to Baghdad last week,” former police detective and drug enforcement officer Carlos Gutierrez.

Although U.S. Border Patrol agents were told to keep their mouths shut by the Obama administration, one of them, Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza appearing on CNN claimed that the federal government, a/k/a the Obama administration, is “aiding, abetting and facilitating the smuggling of illegal aliens across the border.”

Agent Garza went on to say that the Obama administration is merely filing the information given by of the illegal aliens and requesting that they report back to an immigration hearing based on the honor system. Garza alleged on CNN that most of the illegal aliens won’t report back for any immigration hearing and they’ll join the ranks of the 11-15 millions illegal aliens already in the United States.

Texas lawmaker and governor blame Obama for creating ‘refugee camps’

by Jim Kouri on Monday, July 7th, 2014

This is article 442 of 443 in the topic Immigration

Texas officials on Thursday claimed that President Barack Obama and his administration are turning U.S. military installations into “‘refugee camps” instead of working to secure the U.S.-Mexico border as a human tsunami illegal alien children continues to flood and overload the nation’s immigration system.

One U.S. congressman scolded President Barack Obama and his minions complaining that the U.S. military bases — and even the Border Patrol Academy in New Mexico — are fast becoming camps geared towards handling the large numbers of illegal alien children and teenagers, according to an Examiner news story.

“Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I’d see this in the United States of America,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said in a statement.

Chairman McCaul and Texas’ Republican Gov. Rick Perry held a hearing in McAllen, Texas, which sits in the Rio Grande Valley, a community directly affected by what amounts to an immigration crisis. Perry, who has even deployed some Texas Rangers to aid in controlling the border incursions, practically begged Obama to perform his constitutional duty. “Secure this border, Mr. President,” Perry said as he received loud applause.

The Obama administration found itself lacking enough temporary detention or housing for the illegal alien minors awaiting immigration officials’ determinations. They being housed wherever space can be found including at the Border Patrol Training Academy and a number of military bases like Ft. Sill in Oklahoma and Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

Gov. Perry told the news media that he will launch a multi-million dollar emergency fund in order to deploy state law enforcement agents from the Texas Department of Public Safety to help control the U.S.-Mexico border. He also stated that the Obama government needs to increase the number of Texas National Guard at the border.

Perry also complained about the lack of federal money being returned to the Texas state government and local police departments and hospitals. “The state should be reimbursed for the half-billion dollars it’s spent on border security over the past decade. We have been fulfilling a federal responsibility,” Perry said.

Rep. McCaul added that while many illegal alien supporters may believe they are on “the side of the angels” he points to the reality of this latest political exploitation by the radical left with the help of many so-called journalists:

“These children are being exploited by the drug cartels who are turning a profit by smuggling these kids to the U.S. at a cost of $5,000 to $8,000 per child. Many are under the age of 10, traveling thousands of miles alone through Mexico from Central America on buses or so called ‘death trains.’ These children are often subjected to beatings, starvation, sexual assault and are at risk of being trafficked. As a father of five, I cannot fathom handing my child over to a criminal and setting them out on this long and dangerous passage.”

Friday Afternoon Roundup – This is what Revolution Looks Like

by Daniel Greenfield on Friday, July 4th, 2014

 

THIS IS WHAT REVOLUTION LOOKS LIKE

A crowd of 200 to 300 people in downtown Murrieta surrounded three Homeland Security buses carrying illegal alien detainees waving large American flags and holding signs that opposed higher taxes and “new illegals” — waited in the hot sun all day for the three charter buses to arrive.

Waving Americans flags and protest signs, the crowd refused to give way when the buses arrived with some 140 detainees from Texas, which has seen a flood of Central American illegal aliens cross the border.

Protesters chanted “USA!” “Impeach Obama!” and “Deport, Deport!”

Anti-Amnesty Protesters Force Buses Full of Obama’s Illegal Aliens to Turn Back

REVOLUTION

The Murrieta protest strongly reminded me of what the Tea Party used to do when it came to ObamaCare. A small number of ordinary people used social media to get the word out and organize protests.

The media denounced them. The politicians denounced them. But in the end they helped turned the tide of public opinion.

The situation is similar to, but also worse than ObamaCare, because there is no establishment opposition at all. The only real opposition is coming from ordinary people who are fed up.

Are the Anti-Illegal Amnesty Protests the New Tea Party?

THE POST-RACIAL PRESIDENCY CONTINUES…

Machete was the incredibly violent and racist movie whose trailer was released with “a special Cinco de Mayo message for Arizona.” It ends with illegal aliens massacring the fictional version of the Minutemen.

“Machete” …. is a call for revolution; Mexicans against Americans – and in the words of the character meant to be our evolving conscience, Jessica Alba’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Sartana, it’s about how those who believe in only LEGAL immigration “deserve to be cut down.”

OBAMA’S ICE COYOTES

The ICE document specified that Murrieta would be the end point for “processing” the individuals, noting that they “may be released with instructions to report to a local ICE office near their destination address within 15 days.”

After processing, immigrants are released into the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, who will assist them in reaching family members in the United States before their appearance in an immigration court, according to David Jennings, field director for ICE’s Los Angeles field office.

“A large majority of these people were going somewhere. When they left Honduras, for example, they had a destination,” Jennings said. “We are going to take these people and get them there. We are going to get them to a Greyhound station and get them where they need to go.”

Californians physically block illegal alien ‘dumping’ in their communities

by Jim Kouri on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This is article 441 of 443 in the topic Immigration

In a move that some mainstream news outlets are characterizing as vigilantism, a number of Californians on Tuesday physically blocked the “dumping” of about 145 illegal aliens, transported from Texas, in their suburban communities forcing the Obama-ordered bus caravan to retreat back to the Mexican border, according former police chief Douglas Huddleston.

According to Chief Huddleston, American citizens in southern California are beginning to rise up to protect their homes from Obama’s encouraged invasion by illegal aliens, some of whom are wearing “gang tattoos” and have not undergone any sort of screening process.

Hundred of illegal aliens, mostly women and youths had been processed at a Homeland Security Department (DHS) facility in Texas and were shipped on government buses to theCalifornia’s Murietta township. But a virtual wall of people who never participated in protests before this latest Obama White House scheme, physically blocked the roadways leading into their town forcing the bus drivers to make unscheduled u-turns brought their passengers to a holding facility near the Mexican border not far from San Diego, Calif.

According to Murrieta’s elected officials, they and the mayor were told a few days ago that the illegal aliens would bused into the town. What troubled the officials and in turn the town’s residents was the news that the illegal aliens will be released into their communities under with very little supervision while they await the results of President Barack Obama’s deportation executive order.

“The citizens of Murrieta believed that the unexamined illegal aliens would be left in the town and magically reappear with green cards thanks to state and federal politicians seeking a ‘lock’ on the Latino vote,” said political strategist Michael Barker.

On Monday, the day before the mini-uprising, Murrieta’s Mayor Alan Long released a statement in which he told the Obama administration that his constituents overwhelmingly objected the illegal aliens moving into the town, but he said he understood that city officials such as police officers, could not legally do anything to block Obama’s immigration plan.

“They’re not deporting them. They’re transporting them here to be processed and to be released into the communities. A lot of people don’t know where to go. They have nowhere to go,” saidBorder Patrol Agents Union official Ron Zermeno.

Meanwhile, a government-contracted security force reportedly threatened doctors and nurses with arrest if they discussed the threat of contagious diseases at a temporary camp created to house illegal alien children in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

For Too Many, It’s a Very Unhappy Fourth of July

by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This is article 42 of 43 in the topic US Holidays

As Americans pause to celebrate the 238th signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, it well may be one of the saddest Fourth’s in decades. The six and a half years of the Obama regime has failed to unleash the nation’s capacity to recover from the 2008 financial crisis and has left the nation saddled in debt and dependency.

This is not what freedom is about, nor did the Founding Fathers conceive of a President who ruled with “a pen and a phone.”

As The Wall Street Journal reported on January 13, “The year began with the news that “World economic freedom has reached record levels according to the 2014 Index of Economic Freedom released Tuesday by the Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal. But after seven straight years of decline, the U.S. has dropped out of the top ten most economically free countries.” What this means is that “those losing freedom risk economic stagnation, high unemployment, and deteriorating social conditions.”

That is a description of life in America today. It is a nation in which regard for Congress and the mainstream media has plunged to new lows.

In February, CNSnews reported that “The debt of the U.S. government has increased $6,666 trillion since President Barack Obama took office on January 20, 2009, according to the latest numbers release by the Treasury Department.” When he was first inaugurated, the debt was $10,626,877,913.08 and as of January 31, 2014 the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61.” Looking back in time, the total debt of the U.S. did not exceed $6,666 trillion until July 2003, meaning that the U.S. has accumulated as much debt as it did in its first 227 years.

As the year began, the unemployment figures cited by the government were in dispute. One influential Wall Street advisor, David John Marotta, calculated that those not working when the year began represented 37.2% of the labor force as defined by the portion of people who did not have a job, had given up looking for one, and those who had no intention of working for a living. The government calculated the unemployment rate at 6.7%.

Being a native-born American offered no advantage for those seeking work. The Center for Immigration Studies released a study that said that “Since the year 2000 all of the net increase in the number of working-age (16-65) people holding a job has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal)” even though native-born Americans accounted to two-thirds of the growth in the total working-age population.

Since 2000 more than 17 million immigrants arrived in the country, a time period in which native employment “has deteriorated significantly.” Given the wholesale invasion of illegal immigrants that is occurring, this calls for the enforcement of existing immigration laws and a secure southern border.

Since Obama took office, all manner of government benefit programs have been expanded. They include Medicaid, food stamps, Supplemental Security Income, public housing, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and Woman, Infants Children. In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Census Bureau calculated that there were 109,592,000 who lived in a household that included people “on one or more means-tested programs.”

Contrast that with 86,429,000 full-time private sector workers and it means that 14,802,00 non-veteran benefit takers outnumbered those whose taxes support them by a rate of 1.7 to 1.

When the World Goes Crazy it First Kills Jews

by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

This is article 37 of 37 in the topic Jews/Jewish

Consider this, if there had been a state of Israel in the 1930s, many more European Jews would have been able to escape the fate that consumed six million of them during the Nazi Holocaust during World War II.

That there is an Israel today explains when French and Ukrainian Jews are leaving their native countries and making Israel their new home. In mid-June, the Associated Press reported that “Increasing numbers of French Jews are leaving for Israel, citing dim economic prospects and a sense of being caught between an increasingly influential far right and militant Islam. More than 5,000 are on track to leave this year, the most since after the Six-Day War in 1967.”

The chairman of the Jewish Agency, Natan Sharanky, speaking recently, noted that immigration to Israel from around the world had increased by 55%, with particular emphasis on those from France and Ukraine. The Jewish newswire service, Ynet, reported that “Never before has such a large proportion of a Western community made aliyah (return) in a single year.”

If you were a French or Ukrainian Jew, you’d do the same thing if you could. In May, Three Jews, two of whom were Israelis, were murdered and one was wounded at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Belgium. The suspect, profiled by French police, was a convict radicalized in prison and suspected of having joined Islamists in Syria to fight alongside them. A “disturbing reality” reported The Wall Street Journal is that “hundreds of Europeans have similar backgrounds.”

Seeing the increase, Israel is planning to dedicate $29 million over the next two years to bring in new immigrants.

I don’t see any difference between the Nazis of the 1930s and the Islamists of these years. The Nazis received a lot of support from the Arabs of their era. As for Islam, the Koran is filled with admonitions against Jews in particular and every other “infidel” in general. While there have been periods of tolerance for Jews over the past 1,400 years, the animus towards them has never been reduced and, in present times, we have seen a massive rejection of Christians as well. When Israel became a state in 1948, thousands of Jews from throughout the Middle East fled for their lives to settle there.

What history confirms is that a rise of anti-Semitism has been a signal of greater, wider troubles to come.

The Jewish Virtual Library, in its section on Zionism—the belief that Jews should have a nation-state of their own—notes that “In the late 19th century, the rise of anti-Semitism led to a resurgence of pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe, shattering promises of equality and tolerance. This stimulated Jewish immigration to Palestine from Europe.”

Moreover, Zionism does not discriminate against anyone. Israel’s open and democratic character, and its scrupulous protection of the religious and political rights of Christians and Muslims, rebut the charge of exclusivity. Moreover, anyone—Jew or non-Jew, Israeli, American, or Chinese, black, white, or purple—can be a Zionist.”

The rise of Islamism has given rise to much turmoil in the Middle East and in Africa. Nigeria is plagued by Boko Haram, an Islamist terrorist organization that is kidnapping girls and attacking Christian churches.

Latino group and Obama ally exposed by America’s toughest sheriff

by Jim Kouri on Monday, June 30th, 2014

This is article 440 of 443 in the topic Immigration

It’s no secret to many Americans that President Barack Obama and his administration, especially Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department hierarchy, have it in for the man known to many as America’s toughest sheriff, according to supporters for the reelection of Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio in an email release on Sunday. The latest attacks on Arpaio stem from his exposing a Democratic Party favored activist group known as the Puente Movement.

Puente’s legal team on June 18, 2014 filed a federal lawsuit against “Arpaio… and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office challenging… laws that turn immigrants into felons simply for working to provide for their families,” according to thegroup’s website.

“We are requesting an immediate injunction and permanent halt to the workplace raids and to expunge the records of raid victims who continue to face discrimination and barriers from exaggerated felony charges,” Puente officials claim.

“They have spent more time and resources coming after me and my office to keep us from enforcing illegal immigration laws than they do working to stop illegal immigrants from crossing our borders,” according to the 82-year-old Arpaio, who displays the energy of a man half his age,.

“Why? Because I’m the only law enforcement official in this state that has actively enforced our illegal immigration laws,”he said in the campaign email.

Arpaio has frequently pointed out that the Obama administration placed a federal “monitor” in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to make there’s no “racially profiling” going on within the department’s jurisdiction. Arpaio calls this waste of taxpayer money absurd and says he’s in the midst of appealing the ruling and will continue to appeal all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the past few days, Eric Holder’s non-governmental agency allies such as the ultra-liberal American Civil Liberties Union and the aforementioned open-borders, pro-amnesty group called “Puente” filed a federal lawsuit to prevent Arpaio’s deputies from conducting workplace operations to arrest “employees” that are engaged in identity theft by using other people’s social security numbers.

“Being a victim of identity theft is no trivial matter. It can ruin your credit, your ability to purchase a car or a home and make your life miserable because someone broke the law and used your identification. I can’t help it if the vast majority of these identity theft suspects are illegal immigrants,” said Arpaio.

Arpaio claims that Puente is a radical group that demands the deportations of illegal aliens be stopped. Puents also wants permanent citizenship for those who have broken U.S. immigration laws to enter the United States. Even more absurd is the group’s demand that the federal government disband both the U.S. customs and border patrol departments.

“They have consistently called for my arrest, protest outside my office or wherever I appear publicly and have actively worked to remove me from office. They’re counting on me to surrender and quit,” said Arpaio..

‘I won’t surrender. And I won’t quit. I don’t care if it’s the Justice Department, liberal attorneys or these extreme open-border groups that want to see me gone.

Enough! They MUST be stopped!

by Lloyd Marcus on Monday, June 30th, 2014

This is article 191 of 192 in the topic Liberalism

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits and stunned Americans say, “That’s outrageous!” “He can’t do that!” “No way!” “It’s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital “A” coming out of the Obama Administration.

For example. The GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama’s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, screw it, I’ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a clarion call interpreted around the world to mean if you can get your kids to the U.S., the kids can stay. http://on.wsj.com/1iCADeR In essence, Obama has made illegal aliens winners of his Open Borders Lottery – free food, health care, legal assistance and education – winning more free goodies than are available to American kids. http://bit.ly/1ilYCEa Like a game show announcer, I expect an Administration official to enthusiastically say to illegals, “But wait, there’s more….A NEW CARRRR!!!”

Around one thousand illegals arrive daily. Over 47 thousand have arrived thus far, an estimated 90 thousand to arrive by September 30th.http://bit.ly/1ilYCEa

Everyone and anyone (gang members, drug dealers and other criminals) are illegally moving to America greeted with open arms by the Obama Administration. Americans who are paying attention are well aware of the impending devastatingly negative impact Obama’s “y’all come” policy will have on our structure as a nation, economy and national security.

Like every other extremely arrogant action by Obama, from blatantly lying about Obamacare to releasing the Taliban five – while everyone expresses disbelief, outrage and concern – nothing happens. The same is the case concerning the disaster happening at our border. Despite bipartisan outrage, the tsunami of illegals continues.

Then, there is the absurd lie from the IRS that Lerner’s emails related to the targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups were lost due to a computer crash. http://bit.ly/1qnxpTV Does this Administration believe they can say and do anything they please and get away with it? The answer is yes. As I stated, the remarkable arrogance of this Administration is becoming legendary.

However, what I find most extraordinarily arrogant and insidious is this Administration’s relentlessly focused efforts to mandate political correctness and implement their socialist/progressive agenda via government overreach. The feds have stepped in to try to force the Washington Redskins to change their name; talk about focusing on the minor while ignoring the major. http://politi.co/1ilTLmq

Think about that, folks. Iraq is falling apart. A gazillion illegals are invading our country. Terrorism is back on the rise. Food prices are through the roof. Forty-seven million Americans are on food stamps. Ninety million Americans are unemployed. Obamacare is a job killing and health care disaster. And what does the Obama Administration focus on: taking extraordinary measures to force the Redskins to change their name. Unbelievable.

My fellow Americans, when is enough enough from this horrifyingly deceitful, conniving, anti-American and evil bunch in DC who are holding our great nation hostage? The mainstream media will never place the best interest of America above Obama. The first black president is their best hope for ramming their dreamed socialist/progressive agenda down the throats of the American people. I get that.

Jay Carney’s capable replacement: ‘Deliberate misinformation campaign’ causing border influx

by Doug Powers on Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

null

The U.S. government is opening more detention centers to house people who are flooding across the border illegally.

Yesterday, Jay Carney’s replacement, Josh Earnest, who has some big lies to fill, scapegoated the border crisis:

White House officials blamed human traffickers for causing the crisis. “So much of what we are seeing on the southern border is the result of a deliberate misinformation campaign that is propagated by criminal syndicates in central America,” said Obama spokesman Josh Earnest.

What is that “misinformation”?

“That misinformation is causing some people who are in a rather desperate situation to risk their lives to come to the US border expecting that they will be able to stay in this country. That is simply not true.

Expecting to be able to stay in the U.S.? Where would they get that idea?

Obama’s Illegal alien tidal wave to cost taxpayers $billions annually: Report

by Jim Kouri on Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

This is article 437 of 443 in the topic Immigration

With many American citizens feeling helpless — and hopeless — as they watch their nation’s border security openly violated by illegal alien children — some of whom are over 18-years-old — a nonpartisan watchdog group reported on Thursday that the state of California alone spends upwards of $25 billion each year to provide human services to millions of lawbreakers.

The state’s estimated 3 million illegal aliens and their 1.1 million U.S.–born children, known as anchor babies, cost the average California household — headed by a U.S. citizen – $2,370 annually.

“While President Barack Obama and many Democrats benefit from the influx of illegal aliens who may become Democrats themselves, it’s the American taxpayers footing the bill for the politicians’ future voters,” said former police officer and security director Iris Aquino.

The group, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), released a study that finds providing healthcare, education, law enforcement, and social services to a growing illegal alien population costs Californians $25.3 billion per year, according to the report.

In a 2013 Examiner news story, it was reported that some state and local governments have expressed concerns about the impact that criminal aliens have on already overcrowded prisons and jails and that the federal government reimburses them for only 25 percent of the cost of incarcerating criminal aliens.

The education of illegal aliens’ children or the American born children of illegal aliens is the largest burden to taxpayers at $14.4 billion each year. That includes standard public school education as well as English language instruction. Despitefederal funding, which is but a fraction of the costs, the average amount taxpayers must pay $10,450 each year for each student.

The second-largest expense for the illegal alien population is law enforcement, courts and prison costs for illegal aliens who’ve committed crimes other than entering the U.S. unlawfully. The cost to California is said to be more than $4.4 billion, the FAIR study notes.

Meanwhile, healthcare for illegal aliens — even before Obamacare — costs taxpayers in California another $4 billion. The report finds that taxes collected from illegal aliens amounts to about $3.5 billion annually, and so claims that illegal immigrants “contribute more than they take” are spurious.

FAIR’s president, Dan Stein, stated in the report:

“Twenty-five billion dollars a year in costs associated with illegal immigration represents a fiscal crisis that affects California’s ability to meet its basic obligations to citizens and legal residents. While clearly the Federal government bears responsibility for its failure, or refusal, to enforce our immigration laws, in California’s case many of the burdens of illegal immigration are self-induced.

“Despite overwhelming evidence that illegal immigration represents an unsustainable fiscal burden to the state, the California Legislature and local governments across the state continue to provide new benefits, new services, and new privileges to illegal aliens, even as the state neglects the needs and concerns of other Californians. The costs will continue to grow so long as the state continues to reward illegal immigration and impedes immigration enforcement. California taxpayers will continue to be the losers in this unhappy scenario.”
