The Next Step Of The Administrative Amnesty

The Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty continues apace. The Regime has reveived no pushback from the Republicans in Congress, including after his unconstitutional appointment of the head of the consumer protection agency and several members of the National Labor Relations Board. The Republicans have aquiesced to the Regime's attack on the Constitution, whether it be Obama's failure to uphold his oath of office, the administrative repeal of Acts of Congress, or unconstitutional non-recess recess appointments.

Encountering no resistance, the Regime is proceeding apace with the Administrative Amnesty. It is no in talks with the State of Kansas Agriculture Secretary to authorize the widespread employment of illegal aliens. (h/t Stein Report)

The Daily Caller January 30, 2012 by David Martosko

Faced with a shortage of hired hands, Kansas ranchers and farmers are appealing to their state’s secretary of agriculture for a solution. And he says he has one: hiring illegal immigrants.

It’s an idea that’s unorthodox enough to turn heads but, practical enough to justify a series of meetings with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — a meeting which Kansas Agriculture Secretary Dale Rodman told the Topeka Capital-Journal he has attended.

His goal is for the state government to organize a network of illegal immigrants and willing employers into a hiring network. No such arrangement, of course, can go forward without the federal government’s approval, since Washington, D.C. is tasked with enforcing immigration laws.

“I need a waiver,” Rodman said. “It would be good for Kansas agriculture.”

As talks continue off-and-on in Washington, D.C., state lawmakers in Topeka are expected to unveil their own legislative fix soon: A federal government-approved program that would allow businesses to hire illegal immigrants who have lived in Kansas for at least five years. Prospective workers with criminal records would be disqualified.

Unorthodox indeed. Positively illegal. There is no "waiver" of an Act of Congress available. One cannot hire illegal aliens. DHS cannot approve such a scheme, but DHS is negociating with the State of Kanas to do just that. And the spineless Republicans in Congress and on the Presidential campaign trail are silent.

Culture Of Respect For The Law

The United Mexican States (Yes, that is it's real name, not Republic of Mexico, etc.) has a very strict voter identification system. There is one and only one voter identification card. There is no voting without it. And it is used as the defacto national identification card. And if a person fails to renew or obtain a card, there is no "amnesty" for the lazy and indolent. (h/t Stein Report)

USA Today by David Agren January 29, 2012

MEXICO CITY – Office worker Ana Martínez lined up at 7 a.m. on a recent Sunday to renew her voter credential, a document required at a polling station to vote.

But voting was not the main reason she was getting it. The free photo ID issued by the Federal Electoral Institute had become the accepted way to prove one's identity — and is a one-card way to open a bank account, board an airplane and buy beer.

Voting was almost an afterthought to Martínez.

"They ask for it everywhere," she said. "It's very difficult to live without it."

But the Mexican government demands personal responsiblity from its citizens as well:

Though some U.S. states allow people to vote without IDs, Mexico makes no exceptions for individuals lacking the proper documents. The Federal Electoral Institute also refused to extend the registration period or grant an amnesty for those applying late, leaving more than a million people ineligible to vote.

"It is a matter that has to do with a culture of respect for the law," Francisco Guerrero, one of the nine commissioners on the institute, told the newspaper Reforma.

The agency makes no apologies for the tough rules or requiring photo identifications, given Mexico's history of troubled elections. "We started from such a point of distrust, especially in the electoral system," institute commissioner María Marván said.

"In order to strengthen democracy, we have to start believing in our own institutions. That's a big challenge in Mexico."

Personal responsibility, mandatory identification, and, more importantly, no amnesty. No amnesty for its citizens at home, but the government of Mexico demands it of us?

More State Department And ICE Fail

The Department of State (DOS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) colluded recently to issue a visitor's visa, B-1 or B-2 Non-immigrant visa to Seyed Mojtaba Atarodi, an Iranian computer researcher and academic, closely tied to the Iranian nuclear program. He provides the computer technology necessary to control the nuclear weapons and weapons delivery systems for the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Since being issued a visa by DOS, with the approval of ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Visa Security Officers (VSO) stationed at American dipolmatic posts overseas, Atarodi entered the United States and promply conspired to purchase computer technology prohibited for export to Iran.

AP/Yahoo By Douglas Birch And Paul Elias

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States has arrested and charged an Iranian semiconductor scientist with violating U.S. export laws by buying high-tech U.S. lab equipment, a development likely to further worsen Iranian-U.S. tensions...

But a Sharif University spokesman said he has been charged with buying instruments from the United States. The university official spoke only on condition of anonymity because of the potential repercussions of the case.

Even more of interest, this is not the first Iranian intelligence agent that DOS and ICE have approved visas for:

Describing the problems faced by Iranian scientists visiting the U.S., Hojabri cited an incident in 2006 when more than 50 researchers, executives and engineers from Iran headed for a forum on disaster management in Santa Clara, Calif., were detained and expelled after their arrival because their visas were revoked. The event was organized by a Sharif University alumni group.

And as usual, ICE is playing catch-up to FBI leadership:

Bloomberg By Karen Gullo January 26, 2012

Agents from the Commerce Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security were “uncompromising and meticulous,” Kohn said in a phone interview today.

The question is why is DOS and ICE creating more work for the FBI and Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security? Why is DOS and ICE assisting the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security with their nuclear warfare programs? Inquiring minds want to know. Perhaps this is why ICE is too busy to arrest illegal aliens who demonstrate in front of ICE offices? They are too busy assisting Iran's nuclear program.

The Worm Has Turned, Again

The radical left once upon a time opposed Islam. The Nation magazine was notorious for its support of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. It supported the liberation of women, minorities, and the working class from the oppression of the patriarchy and the peasants from that of the landlord class that used religion, Islam, to oppress the downtrodden victims of capitalism and the feudal order.

But then came 9/11 and Islam was all the rage among the left. Killing white American capitalists, little Eichmans, they called us, was a universal good. And retrograde patriarchal leaders of the opiate of the masses was doing the killing, so the left ended its opposition to organized religion not run by the KGB, Islam.

But any port in a storm, and the radical left has again rediscovered the evils of Islam, but only because they are killing trade-unionists, communists and leftists. As if there is any difference between the three.

Counterpunch January 24, 2012 by Conn Hallinan

(Just what is it with the Irish communists at The Nation and Counterpunch? Another Irishman there has a clear hard-on for Muqtada Al Sadr)

Indeed it is, but the Times is not only continuing to ignore U.S. involvement in planning and carrying out the coup, but apparently doesn’t even bother to read its own clip files from that time that reported the Johnson administration’s “delight with the news from Indonesia.” The newspaper also reported a cable by Secretary of State Dean Rusk supporting the “campaign against the communists” and assuring the leader of the coup, General Suharto, that the “U.S. government [is] generally sympathetic with, and admiring of, what the army is doing.”

What the Indonesian Army was doing was raping and beheading communists, leftists, and trade unionists. Many people were savagely tortured to death by the military and its right-wing Muslim allies in the Nahdlatul Ulama and the Muhammadiyah. A number of those butchered were fingered by U.S. intelligence.

WTF? Muslims can be bad? They don't like commies, lefties and union thugs? Quelle suprise? All that is old is new again, including leftist denuciations of oppression of the masses by Islam. Ah, the opiate of the people. I guess it all depends on whose ox is being gored. It is clear that the preferred target of Muslim violence is Americans, not Soviets, leftists, communists, and union thugs (LOL, I keep repeating myself. I should just say KGB toady, or pinko, or commie, that would cover all those groups.).

What ICE Is Really Doing

Recent statistics for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are out. And the winner is: Customs. Customs in the eternal infighting between the two responsibilities of ICE. Immigration enforcement is the obvious looser.

Homeland Security Today January 24, 2012

By Phil Leggiere

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seized 24,792 counterfeit and pirated goods during fiscal year 2011, a 24 percent increase over 2010, according to its annual report Intellectual Property Rights, Fiscal Year 2011 Seizure Statistics.

Despite the significant increase in the number of seizures, the report found, the domestic value for seizures in fiscal year 2011 decreased by five percent to $178.9 million and the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) declined slightly to $1.1 billion. CBP and ICE said that this was primarily due to a shift toward using international mail, express courier and consolidated shipping services to import counterfeit and pirated goods.

Protecting America from fake Gucci bags and NFL knockoffs. Rather than search for missing Haitian criminals and terrorists. That is your ICE. And it appears to be the really cheap stuff. Not even high-end knockoffs.

How many more dead Americans before ICE concentrates on the real priorities?

The Real ICE Crime

It was not releasing a soon to be triple-murder, but failing to follow up when deportations resumed.

Kesler Dufrene was a Haitian immigrant of some sort, legal or illegal, who soon after release by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), murdered three innocents. The real crime is that the Regime halted deportations to Hait after an earthquake devestated the capital, Porte-au-Prince. Interestingly enough, most of the rest of the country was little effected. Haiti's countryside is one of tiny shacks and small agricultural plots outside the capital little affected by earthquakes. But the Regime decided that it wanted to keep as many Haitians as possible in the United States. ICE had its hands tied in this case as the Regime suspended deportations to Haiti. Unlike another situation where ICE happily released a criminal, Jose Manuel Gonzalez-Sandoval, who went on with his criminal career.

Miami Herald January 24, 2012 by David Ovalle

When burglar Kesler Dufrene became a twice-convicted felon in 2006, a Bradenton judge shipped him to prison for five years. And because of his convictions, an immigration judge ordered Dufrene deported to his native Haiti.

That never happened.Instead, when Dufrene’s state prison term was up, Miami immigration authorities in October 2010 released him from custody. Two months later, North Miami police say, he slaughtered three people, including a 15-year-old girl in a murder case that remains as baffling today as it did the afternoon the bodies were discovered...

In August 2007, records show, a U.S. immigration judge ordered him deported. He was released from state prison in September 2010, and handed over to immigration custody at West Miami-Dade’s Krome Detention Center.

The federal government annually deported hundreds of Haitians convicted of felonies in the United States.But after the devastating January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the Obama administration announced it was indefinitely halting deportations to the country.

“Under binding Supreme Court precedent, ICE’s authority to detain any individual is limited when the removal of that individual is not likely in the reasonably foreseeable future,” the immigration agency’s statement said.

But here is the real failure by ICE, it made no effort to find Dufrene after deportations to Haiti were resumed:

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2001 and 2005 that foreign nationals who cannot be deported may not be held in detention longer than six months. Deportations resumed in mid-January 2011 — three months after Dufrene was released from custody under ICE supervision. The agency did not specify what that supervision entailed.

Clearly there was no active monitoring of Dufrene's conditions of release and no effort was made to find and arrest him after deportations were resumed.

Clearly violent criminals, one of ICE's "priorities," were not a real priorites. Especially not Haitians who vote overwhelmingly for Demoncrats.

ICE: Missing In Action XVI

The FBI has arrested another Muslim refugee involved in terrorism. ICE, like in the Kentucky and Najibullah Zazi cases, is missing in action, again. The top "priority" is not much of a priority while they are concentrating on not arresting illegal aliens.

WaPo/AP January 23, 2012

AURORA, Colo. — The FBI arrested a refugee from Uzbekistan at Chicago’s O’Hare airport on charges that he planned to travel overseas to fight for a terrorist group and give up his life if necessary, an official said Monday.

However, there was no evidence that suspect Jamshid Muhtorov was plotting attacks inside the United States, authorities said.

Muhtorov, 35, of Aurora, Colo., was arrested Saturday by members of the FBI’s Denver and Chicago Joint Terrorism Task Forces.

Muhtorov, who goes by several other names, was indicted for providing and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. Prosecutors allege he planned to fight for the Islamic Jihad Union, which has been blamed for suicide attacks in Uzbekistan and claimed responsibility for numerous attacks against coalition forces in Afghanistan.

Just what are ICE agents being paid for?

More Hispanic Corruption In DHS II

The avalanche of corrupt Hispanic employees in DHS continues apace. Two more Hispanic law enforcement officers, one a Border Patrol Agent, another a local officer, have been arrested by the FBI. And of note, they were involved in drug smuggling and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was missing in action.

Reuters/Yahoo January 20, 2012 Tim Gaynor

Arizona Sting Catches 2 Officers

PHOENIX (Reuters) – A U.S. Border Patrol agent and an Arizona jailer trapped in a sting operation have been arrested on charges they conspired to help traffickers smuggle drugs from Mexico, authorities said on Friday.

Ivhan Herrera-Chiang, 29, a Border Patrol agent in Yuma, Ariz., and Michael Lopez-Garcia, 28, a corrections officer at the Arizona State Prison Complex in San Luis, Ariz., were arrested on Thursday, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Arizona said.

They are accused of conspiring to help traffickers smuggle drugs from Mexico into far western Arizona between September 2010 and January 2012.

The two officials were fingered by a confidential informant working for a drug- and human-smuggling network in Mexico, according to the criminal complaint.

More benefits of immigration. A corrupt DHS and local law enforcement. Just check this out. Almost all Hispanic.

Ingrate Immigrant Blames America

Eliana Lopez came to America to sponge off the tax-payers. She is the former television star from Venezuela who married a local San Francisco politician who was just recently elected Sheriff of San Francisco City and County, Ross Mirkarimi, himself the first generation descendant of Iranian and Jewish-Russian immigrant or daughter of immigrants. He is also a radical hate America leftist. The typical leftist who supports extreme anti-male laws regarding domestic battery. Such laws were allegedly passed to control the epidemic of wife-beatings in California and throughout the country. Part of these laws are mandatory arrest requirements for any allegation, however minor. Of course Mirkarimi is not the stereotypical abuser who beats his wife at the drop of a hat to the point of severe or even minor injury. And it is well known that false accusations of domestic abuse are legion among vengeful women. Especially women who are not quite stable from the beginning. In fact, real abuse has been untouched by the laws, as they are mostly deployed against middle class white males. In the end, because of their workload and the reality that most incidents of abuse are minor and of no real consequence, most accused are let off with anger management courses and deferred prosecution. And of no use against the real abuser, most of whom are from the lower classes and not usually white.

But there is a real San Francisco twist here. Accusations of racism and blame America first have appeared. No surprise because San Francisco denizens hate America. And no one hates America more than immigrants in the Golden State and on the Golden Mountain.

Which brings us to the ingrate immigrant Lopez. She blames America for her minorly abusive commie husband, the crazed leftist domestic violence laws, and her own personal problems that set her husband off, typical of those from Venezuela.

San Francisco Examiner January 20, 2012 by Ari Burack

Despite the impassioned pleas of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s wife, a judge has renewed a court order barring him from seeing or contacting his spouse or son until his domestic abuse trial is over.

This country is trying to pull my family apart,” Eliana Lopez told Judge Susan Breall at her husband’s arraignment Thursday. “This is the real violence, I believe...”

Outside court, an emotional Lopez told reporters that “this country has not allowed me to work on my marriage in a healthy way. I feel like … everybody is using my family, myself, in a political game just to destroy Ross.”

She added, “This country is destroying my family.”

It appears that Lopez was at one point playing her own game. Planning to leave with their child to Venezuela and since there is no extradition treaty with the communist run coutry and Venezuela is a signatory to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction but not a member of the Hague Conference on Private International Law, there is not any real legal recourse for Americans in Venezuelan courts. Once she left with the child, he would never see his son again.

That videotape, which police later seized along with texts and emails between the women, shows a tearful Lopez describing how her husband bruised her arm that day, according to court documents. Lopez also reportedly discussed earlier physical abuse, and made the tape to ensure that her husband couldn’t obtain sole custody of their 2-year-old son.

A delicious aspect of this is seeing leftists hoisted on their own petard. The interesting reaction is that of the so-called conservative talk station in San Francisco, KSFO, and the screechy co-host of the morning show, Melanie Morgan, who replaced the much more intelligent Officer Vic, who are playing the poor abused woman card. Perhaps just because Mirkarimi is a commie, but in the long run, men are loosing out on the false or exaggerated claims of abuse by women. And most of the victims of this injustice are white males. Though Mirkarimi is not one of use, either by blood or belief, it is always nice to see a leftist get the business that they so much enjoy dishing out, but in the end, he is learning how it is to be at least perceived as a white male in America.

In the end though, Lopez, like most immigrants, goes to the same well. Blame America for everything, including her own personal problems and patterns of behavior. Shame on her and her ilk.

Man Bites Dog

The Obama Regime actually filed charges of racial discrimination against a company for hiring Hispanics over whites or blacks. Of course the emphasis of the charge of racial discrimination was that blacks were the main victim of the discrimination. But noteably the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement ignored the violations. For Hispanic one should probably read illegal alien from Mexico or other points south.

Legal News Wire January 16 by Michael Tremoglie

WASHINGTON -- The Labor Department's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has announced that government contractor JacintoPort International has agreed to settle allegations of hiring discrimination on the basis of race involving 48 African-American and 21 Caucasian job applicants rejected for longshoreman positions at the company's Houston facility."

In this day and age, it is shocking that any company would allow race to be a factor in determining who gets hired," OFCCP Director Patricia A. Shiu said. "This settlement should put all federal contractors on notice that, in the Obama administration, we will be persistent when it comes to rooting out workplace discrimination and will vigilantly monitor employers who violate the law until they get it right."

DOL previously cited JacintoPort for violating requirements of Executive Order 11246 by failing to implement an applicant tracking system for new hires, and to develop and execute action-oriented programs to recruit women and
. This matter was settled on June 6, 2006. JacintoPort agreed to correct the violations and produce semiannual reports on the company's progress in employing women and minorities.

Whites only got justice by accident. I can tell you from personal experience that the EEOC just does not consider white males and Americans to be protected by the laws of the United States. An no evidence that ICE looked into the status of the Hispanics who benefited from the discrimination. And the most likely reason the Hispanics benefited was that they worked long hours for little pay or benefits. Probably because they were illegal and happy to have any job.

More Racist Ethnic Cleansing By Illegal Alien Gangbangers

And U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) missing in action again. Hispanic gangs have been ethnically cleansing California for decades. The victims are mostly blacks, as black neighborhoods are the first areas that illegals move to in most, though not all, cases, vis the once beautiful and mostly white Salinas Valley, now a hellhole of gangbangers from Mexico. ICE's failure on the issue of protecting Americans from ethnic cleansing has been notorious, such as in the Varrio Hawaiian Gardens.

Like the bucolic Salinas Valley, once home of John Steinbeck, San Clemente is the latest target of Hispanic gangbangers and ICE has no interest or concerns. (h/t American Renaissance)

San Clemente Patch January 10, 2012 by Adam Townsend

Friday night brawl injures two others. A trio of suspects are arrested.

A San Clemente man remained in a coma Tuesday after being hit with bricks in a Friday brawl.

Three suspects -- Filiberto Thomas Cordova, 23, Francisco Javier Sanchez, 29, and Gilberto Velazquez, 29 -- have been charged with attempted murder and assault in the case. In addition, Velazquez and Sanchez face felony street terrorism charges for their alleged affiliation with the San Clemente-related Varrio Chico street gang, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office.

And notice the names of the victims, and the unmentioned race of perpetators and victims.

Dan Jacobsen, one of the victims, got involved after hearing a commotion outside his apartment and running outside, where he saw his 19-year-old son and two friends arguing with several other men.

Suddenly, a white, two-door Chevy pickup sped to the stop sign at the end of Rosa from the direction of El Camino Real, and several men got out, he said.

Jacobsen, who pulled away some of the attackers and was injured in the process, said he dragged his son -- who had been knocked unconscious -- to the concrete stairs of their apartment, where a faint bloodstain remained Tuesday.

This is not the first, nor will it be the last. The LA Times, of all newspapers, has been documenting the quite public and unashamed rise of Varrio Chico, the primary Mexican gang involved in the Obamaesque cleansing of San Clemente of dem ebil racciss white crakas. Another city lost to immigrants and their descendants. Sad to see the city of Richard Milhous Nixon, a city that was the penultimate manifestation of the California suburb, become another Ciudad Juarez.

Thanks much to John Morton and ICE. Still not doing their job.

John Morton Shocked, Shocked He Says

John Morton, head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is shocked, shocked, that local governments are releasing criminals back into the community.

Chicago Sun-Times January 12, 2012 by Lisa Donovan

Cook County’s controversial illegal immigration policy, which critics say paved the way for a suspect in a deadly drunken driving crash to bond out of jail and disappear, may very well violate federal law, the nation’s immigration director said in a letter to County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.

“This ordinance undermines public safety in Cook County,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton wrote in a Jan. 4 letter to Preckwinkle. “In addition to undermining local public safety, the [ordinance] may also violate federal law.”

Interestingly enough, it was Morton who has ordered the release of numerous criminals in ICE custody and instructed that they be returned to the community. Just remember Jose Manuel Gonzalez-Sandoval and Edwin Ramos, two criminal aliens who were released from custody by ICE itself.

The City and County of San Francisco have been releasing criminals for a long time with no objection from Morton or ICE. Suddenly when the Administrative Amnesty is giving the Obama re-election campaign a black eye, Morton is moved to act.

Preckwinkle shook her head over the immigration chief’s letter, requesting an amendment to the ordinance “to avoid any legal conflict with federal law.”

“I just got this letter last night, and we’re crafting a response to Mr. Morton, and we will be happy to talk to him,” Preckwinkle said. “I will just tell you I have not heard a word from him — not a phone call or letter in the last four months — so it’s fascinating I get this in the last few days.”

Yes, a sudden concern and shock over illegal alien criminals released into the community.

Supreme Court Says Aliens Don't Have Constitutional Rights

At least not some Constitutional rights. (h/t Volokh Conspiracy) Apparently there is a difference between a citizen and an alien in the Constitution.

Volokh Conspiracy January 10, 2012

Yesterday, the Supreme Court summarily affirmed Bluman v. FEC (D.D.C. Aug. 8, 2011), an opinion by a three-judge District Court that upheld the ban on non-permanent-resident foreign citizens’ candidate campaign contributions and independent expenditures supporting or opposing candidates.

So we don’t know exactly what reasoning the Supreme Court used, but we do have the reasoning of the three-judge District Court (which may well have some persuasive precedential effect on other courts deciding on other restrictions on non-citizens’ speech and other activity, even though it has no binding precedential value). Here is what strikes me as the key part of the analysis:

We know from more than a century of Supreme Court case law that foreign citizens in the United States enjoy many of the same constitutional rights that U.S. citizens do. For example, aliens are generally entitled to the same rights as U.S. citizens in the criminal process, among several other areas.

From the affirmed lower court decision:

But we also know from Supreme Court case law that foreign citizens may be denied certain rights and privileges that U.S. citizens possess. For example, the Court has ruled that government may bar foreign citizens from voting, serving as jurors, working as police or probation officers, or working as public school teachers. The Court has further indicated that aliens’ First Amendment rights might be less robust than those of citizens in certain discrete areas. See Harisiades v. Shaughnessy, 342 U.S. 580, 591–92 (1952) (First Amendment does not protect aliens from deportation because of membership in the Communist Party). Beyond that, the Constitution itself of course bars foreign citizens from holding certain offices.

In those many decisions, the Supreme Court has drawn a fairly clear line: The government may exclude foreign citizens from activities “intimately related to the process of democratic self-government.”...

Now some, basically the La Raza types, Demoncrat mayors, and some gun nuts think that aliens, legal and illegal, have the same rights as citizens. The Supreme Court has affirmed again that is not true. Aliens don't have the same rights as Americans. Why, because they are not part of our nation. They are alien to it.

And it has just said that aliens may be not only deported for their political views, but that they may be barred from participating in the political process. Now the gun nuts say that the 2nd Amendment is the penultimate expression of self-government, it is the physical application of self-government. It is watering the Tree of Liberty with the blood of tyrants. As the gun nut Mike Vanderboegh says: "When Democracy Becomes Tyranny. I STILL get to vote." And by voting he means armed resistance to tyranny. Well, that is a right "intimately related to the process of democratic self-government." The ultimate expression of self-government, the application of armed violence for political ends. Power does come out of the barrel of a gun. As Jean Rasczak says, "Violence has resolved more conflicts than anything else."

That, of course, brings us to the other rights that the Supreme Court, in its error, says that aliens have, such as a free public education, the right of resident legal aliens to contribute to political candidates and groups, the right to judicial review of administrative decisions regarding deportation and immigration benefits, etc. The problem is that there is nothing in the Constitution that separates these conclusions by the Court that both grant rights and deny other rights enjoyed by citizens. If aliens can't vote, hold office, or contribute to politicians, then it is clear that they should have no rights at all. Much less that illegal aliens be allowed to exercise the most fundamental right of self-government, the application of violence for political ends.

Jessica Colotl In The News Again

And the left-wing press is lying for her. As my readers should know as the Jessica Colotl has been followed closely here, here, and here among other posts. They are trying to portray Colotl as some acculturated victim. But the facts are otherwise.

The Daily Beast by Whitney Joiner January 4, 2012

A year ago, Atlanta-based college graduate Jessica Colotl, 22, caused a firestorm when she was told she would be deported to Mexico, a country she’d left as a child. She’s still here—but possibly not for long.

Last May Jessica Colotl graduated from Kennesaw State University, a small university outside of Atlanta, with a degree in political science. This May a judge will decide whether she stays in the U.S. or gets shipped off to Mexico—a country she hasn’t seen since she was 10 years old.

But that is not true. As this blog has shown, Jessica Colotl has traveled back to Mexico since she first came here at 10. She claims to have a Mexican driver's license and 10 year olds don't get those, even in Mexico. She also has a Mexican passport. No reason to have one of those unless you have been traveling there. Most illegals get matriculas.

Colotl’s own story began when she was 10. Her Mexican parents crossed the Arizona border late one night with her, her brother, and two sisters. They eventually made their way to Atlanta, where Jessica grew up believing she was an American. By high school, she’d pieced together the truth. Her parents didn’t own a car, saying it was too dangerous. (In Georgia, undocumented immigrants can’t get a driver’s license.) At 15, she wanted an after-school job, but she didn’t have a Social Security card—her father said they were only for the “wealthy.” These moments added up. One night as she watched the evening news, a lightbulb went off: “They were always talking about immigration reform, showing people crossing the border. It dawned on me: I did that,” she says. She never broached the subject with her parents. “They were trying to protect us,” she says. “My parents sacrificed so much trying to give us a better future.”

Unlikely, she owned a car, why didn't her parents? All are illegal. How did they get to work in Metro Atlanta without a car? Impossible in that car-centric city. At 10 years old, you certainly know who you are. She did not start speaking English until age 10. And she thought she was American? Lie. She always knew.

In high school, she was a quiet, conscientious student: she went to the prom, took AP classes, and graduated with a 3.8 GPA. (A 1982 Supreme Court decision found that children in America are entitled to a public education, regardless of their legal status.) To get into college at Kennesaw University, she applied with a nonresidents’ application form used by foreign students, and paid with money saved from her parents’ cleaning jobs. Once she arrived, she helped found the school’s first chapter of the Latina sorority Lambda Theta Alpha.

Oh, she was so American she helped found a chapter of a racist Mexican sorority? And, no, she was paying in-state tuition up until her arrest, then no one has presented proof she started paying out-of-state tuition afterward.

Lie after lie. Of course previous stories said she came here at 7. But who is counting. She still hasn't been deported. And she wants to contribute with a Poly Sci degree? Well, she can't be that bright or she would have a STEM degree. That alone is worthy of deportation.

The answer is a resounding Si Se Puede! Yes, we can deport Jessica Colotl!

ICE: Missing In Action XV

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) thinks that it is destined to replace the FBI. They can't do their own job, but want to do someone else's. Just take a gander at Justiceseeker79 comments on this post. ICE is ambitious. But, as usual, it fails completely on its own self-described "priorities." Another Muslim alien terrorist has slipped through the cracks.

AP January 9, 2012 by Tamara Lush and Mitch Stacy

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A Kosovo-born man was charged with plotting to attack Tampa-area nightclubs and a sheriff's office with bombs and an assault rifle to avenge wrongs done to Muslims, federal authorities said Monday.

According to a federal complaint, 25-year-old Sami Osmakac recorded an eight-minute video shortly before his arrest explaining why he wanted to bring terror to his "victims' hearts" in the Tampa Bay area. Osmakac is a naturalized American citizen born in Kosovo, then part of the former Yugoslavia in eastern Europe.

The Criminal Complaint confirms that Osmakac is a naturalized citizen.

The defendant, Sami Osmakac, is a 25 year old man who is a naturalized citizen of the United States, born in the former Yugoslavia.

So, despite the fact that terrorists are ICE's number 1 priority, ICE failed to keep this alien outside of the United States, it failed to discover his treason before his naturalization. ICE failed to take the action necessary to denaturalize him, and it failed to discover his terrorist intent before he took steps to execute a terrorist attack. The FBI had to do it. Another ICE fail.

Political Party Dependent on Union Thugs Thwarted By Same Unions

The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, the union for employees of the Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) section of U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE), has thrown a wrench in the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.

As with any bureaucracy, nothing can be done without policy, procedures, and training. Even the Administrative Amnesty needs written policy and training. All the proper decisions need to be made. And the Regime is aware that a bad decision on amnesty may come back to haunt it. Like an illegal DUI killing an American. Bad for the Amnesty business.

NYT January 7, 2012 by Julia Preston

WASHINGTON — The federal agency in charge of deportations is conducting a far-reaching training course to push immigration enforcement officers and prosecutors nationwide to focus their efforts on removing immigrants convicted of crimes.

The training course is the clearest sign yet that administration officials want to transform the way immigration officers work, asking them to make nuanced decisions to speed deportations of high-risk offenders while halting those of illegal immigrants with clean records and strong ties to the country. The policy is President Obama’s most ambitious immigration initiative before the November elections, senior administration officials said.

But in a new sign of the deep dissension over immigration, the union representing some 7,000 deportation officers of the agency, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, has so far not allowed its members to participate in the training. Without the formal assent of the union, the administration’s strategy could be significantly slowed for months in labor negotiations.

Chris Crane, the president of the union, the National ICE Council, has fiercely criticized the strategy, saying it amounts to orders from ICE officials for agents not to enforce the law. In Congressional testimony, Mr. Crane accused the administration of tailoring its enforcement practices to win support from immigrant communities for Mr. Obama’s re-election.

“Law enforcement and public safety have taken a back seat to attempts to satisfy immigrant advocacy groups,” Mr. Crane told a House Judiciary subcommittee in October.

Department of Homeland Security officials say the training seminar, although only half a day, is central to bringing all ICE officers on board for an effort that they say will significantly raise the numbers of convicted criminals among deportees and is expected to lead in coming months to unprecedented suspensions of deportations of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants.

Virtually all ICE commanding officers and prosecutors have gone through the training course and are working on the new strategy, Homeland Security Department officials said. But because of the silence from the ICE Council, a local of the American Federation of Government Employees, the officials will miss their Jan. 13 goal for completing the nationwide training blitz, which began in November.

You see, the Regime has run into its union thug history. Union members don't do anything outside the contract, and the issue of new policy and practices, as well as the training for said policies and practices, are part of the union contract.

And the Regime's amnesty is definitely outside the contract. And, more importantly, outside the Constitution and the law. There are some patriots using union contracts to slow the amnesty until Mittens becomes President.

Then we shall know the the truth about Mittens.

And perhaps impeachment is the answer. Perhaps Chris Shanahan should be the first ICE manager impeached come November 2nd.

“Our folks understand that we have limited resources and we have to focus more than ever on our priorities,” said Chris Shanahan, the ICE field office director who oversees deportation operations in New York City, where all supervisors have had the training.

Give the other Chris a call. Let him know that he is playing with his pension:

Field Office Director

Associated Press has confirmed that the teenage runaway Jakadrien Lorece Turner acted deliberately during her criminal and immigration proceedings to hide her true identity and sought out deportation as was pointed out on this blog. The Treason Bar continues to blame U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for the deliberate deceit by Turner. Perhaps she wanted to run away from the incredibly stupid name given to her by her mother.

WaPo Associated Press January 5, 2012

Jakadrien’s family says she left home in November 2010. Houston police said the girl was arrested on April 2, 2011, for misdemeanor theft in that city and claimed to be Tika Lanay Cortez, a Colombian woman born in 1990.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday that the teen claimed to be Cortez throughout the criminal proceedings in Houston and the ensuing deportation process in which an immigration judge ultimately ordered her back to Colombia.

The ICE official, speaking on condition of anonymity due to not being authorized to discuss additional details of the case, said the teenager was interviewed by a representative from the Colombian consulate and that country’s government issued her a travel document to enter Colombia. The ICE official said standard procedure before any deportation is to coordinate with the other country in order to establish that person is from there.

Clearly she wanted to be deported and did not want her true identity known. Why, who cares. She made her bed and she lay in it.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

A black teenage runaway was recently deported to Columbia. Shocking you might say, but the rocket scientist teenager decided when arrested for theft to give a false name, which turned out to be that of a Columbian national wanted for other crimes, presumably in Columbia, but there are no details as yet. The rocket scientist also decided to go through with the criminal and immgiration processes without telling her mother or grandmother that she was arrested, who were allegedly concerned, or tell her attorney her real name. January 4, 2011

DALLAS — Johnessa Turner hasn't seen her 15-year-old daughter Jakadrien in more than a year. "It was definitely a hard time," she said. "This has been going on for so long... it's still hard."

Jakadrien ran away in November 2010 and ended up deported to Colombia by mistake...

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal agency that deported Jakadrien, denies any wrongdoing. ICE said the teen gave police a false name when she was arrested in Houston for theft in April. Not even Jakadrien's defense attorney knew her real name.

ICE said it tried to verify her identity through fingerprints and database searches, and nothing raised a red flag.

But how did a 15-year-old girl fool police, federal officials and a judge?

Her mother is just as puzzled.

Well, since she lied and continued to lie, there is really no surprise.

"She was a mature girl, but Jakadrien was a good girl," Johnessa Turner said. "She was responsible, respectful, started going through regular teenage things."

Mature, but not very bright, unless she really did not want to let mom in on the truth for some reason. Perhaps a trip to Columbia was an escape for her. Or she got caught in her spiral of lies and could not get out even with the truth at the end. Oh what a tangled web we weave when we act to decieve.

And from another story: January 4, 2011 by Rebecca Lopez

As News 8 reported, immigrantion officials mistakenly deported the teenager after she gave them the wrong name. That name came back to an illegal immigrant from Colombia who was wanted by international police on warrants.

"They didn't do their work," Lorene Turner asserted. "How do you deport a 15-year-old and send her to Colombia without a passport... without anything?"

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it is investigating this case and takes it very seriously. The agency said it attempted to verify Jakadrien's identity before she was deported and found nothing that would make them doubt the fake name and age she had provided to authorities.

But let us go through the steps to be arrested, charged, handed over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and be deported.

First, at her arrest, she gave a name that was not hers. Clearly she did not want to be found out as a juvenile runaway or there was some other reason that caused her to not use her real name.

Why she chose this as yet unknown Hispanic name to give to the police after her criminal arrest, one does not know. Perhaps she has a juvenile criminal record and did not want that discovered? We just do not know.

Next, she was appointed a free attorney in the criminal case. For some reason she did not tell her attorney her real name. That means she was very serious about hiding her identity. Which makes one suspicious that she did not want to go home for some reason. A very serious reason. One can imagine what that was as there is no mention of her father. Perhaps mom's boyfriend...

It is not clear what happened in the criminal case, dismissed, time served, the story just does not say.

Then she is placed in removal proceedings. She is interviewed by an ICE officer, either a Deportation Officer or an Immigration Enforcement Officer. They ask a series of questions mandated by policy and placed in a Form I-867AB, Record of Sworn Statement. On that form they ask the subject their name, date of birth, citizenship, names and citizenship of their parents and grandparents, among other things. Clearly she did not tell the truth for some reason.

Now Houston is in Harris County, a 287(g) Sheriff's Office, so the forms may have been prepared by a Harris County deputy sheriff, but the forms were reviewed by a Supervisory Deportation Officer. Other forms are created summarizing the facts of the case, such as Form I-213, Record of Deportable Alien, which are reviewed by the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Deputy Field Office Director before the alien is ordered removed.

Then the subject is give a choice to leave voluntarily or have a hearing before a judge. A judge is mentioned, but it is not clear if the judge was in the criminal process, a judge or magistrate in a criminal court, or a judge in the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), part of the Department of Justice.

It is clear though that she did not make a claim of being an American citizen in the process. Perhaps because she was in too deep in her web of lies, or more likely she just did not care.

The next part is the actual removal, which, in fact, does require the consent of the Columbian government. Aliens are not removed, except to Canada and Mexico, without travel documents issued by the country to which the alien is removed. So she would have had to affirmed to the Columbian government that she was the the person in question.

Perhaps she thought that she could get out of the criminal charges in the United States by claiming to be an alien and instead of prosecution, just accept deportation.

The important fact is that she did not just tell one lie one time. She created and repeated a whole series of lies. Why, we do not know. But there is a reason. Stupidity is one.

Clearly she is either not very bright, or too clever by half. Time will tell. But this wasn't a result of mistakes by ICE, it is all her own making.

USCIS Management Leading The Way On Immigration Fraud

In an stunning expose, at least to the public, insiders have always known this, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the agency charged with approving petitions for alien relatives and for registration or adjustment to legal permanent residence, not, though, immigrant visa applications, those are reviewed and adjudicated by the Department of State, has been exposed as on a campaign of assisting and abetting immigration fraud. The Cuban national who heads USCIS, Alejandro Mayorkas, has been the chief culprit, devising and cheer leading a "Get to Yes" campaign of intimidation of USCIS employees who dare apply the law to applications and who dare to find fraud.

Probe Reveals Feds Pressuring Agents To Rush Immigrant Visas – Even If Fraud Is Feared

Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents exclusively obtained by The Daily.

A 40-page report, drafted by the Office of Inspector General in September but not publicly released, details the immense pressure immigration service officers are under to approve visa applications quickly, sometimes while overlooking concerns about fraud, eligibility or security.

One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.”

The report does not call out any particular officials and indicates that the agency has had a problem with valuing quantity over quality since at least the 1980s.

But high-ranking USCIS officials said the pressure has heightened after the Obama administration appointed Alejandro Mayorkas as director in August 2009 during an effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform, bringing with him a mantra of “get to yes.”

The problem is not new to the Obama Regime, it goes back decades, detailing an agency bias to ignoring fraud and the legal standards to award legal permanent residence. It is though reflected in the push for the Administrative Amnesty at all levels of immigration enforcement. What is not mentioned is that there is no authority to ignore the legal standards for obtaining legal permanent residence, a longstanding problem, where management at all levels of the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service always claimed that they had the "discretion" to ignore the law when it suited them. Usually when there was political pressure, but also when low level managers wanted to end backlogs or obtain bonuses for "performance." There was the just the lazyness factor as well. It is alot more work to deny a benefit than to approve it. Always a factor. The path of least resistance is as true for bureaucrats as well as electricity.

Oh Holy Jesus

A nut job Raelian from Iran just got political asylum in the United States. (h/t Raelian wannabee The Treason Bar Asylumist) December 6, 2o11

Negar Azizmoradi, leader of the Iranian branch of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), has been granted religious asylum in the United States after a long struggle that began when she publicly declared atheist/Raelian beliefs in her home country.

“As the leader of the Iranian Raelian Movement and therefore an atheist as well as a political activist, Negar couldn't possibly stay in her country" said Brigitte Boisselier, spokesperson for the IRM, in a statement released this morning. “She was forced to flee Iran when her family received word that she was about to be arrested and thrown into prison.”

The prospect of serving an indefinite sentence in an Iranian prison amounted to a likely death sentence, Boisselier said.

And apparently this cultist needed the help of another from both a more established cult and the new cult of Obama.

Boisselier added that Las Vegas Raelians wish to thank Senator Reid and his staff for their assistance in hastening Negar's asylum application process.

One notes that she is fleeing another cult.

Of interest is why Turkey, a signatory to the U.N. Conventions of 1951 and 1967 on the Status of Refugees, contemplated deporting her to Iran. Most likely because of Turkey's continuing Islamization. But as a signatory Turkey was obliged to grant her at least temporary protection. Even more absurd though is the continuing practice by most countries of foisting their refugees on the United States, much as Nepal does with with its nationals who flee Bhutan.

While the hottie Azizmoradi appears to meet the classic definition of a refugee, a person persecuted for religious or political beliefs, it is quite common for Iranians to falsely claim conversion from Islam to come to the United States. Most make a bogus claim to conversion to Christianity, almost all using the same story, an Armenian friend of mine invited me to church. But they give no specifics and usually mention some street in the Armenian section of town. That's about it.

But do we really want UFO cult leaders in the United States? Do we need a repeat of the Heaven's Gate suicides? Hasn't the cult of self given to us by Marin County and its hot tub culture done enough damage? Do we need these cults at all? We have the Revealed Truth that our Founders acknowledged.

Here is Patrick Henry on the issue. One wonders what he would have thought of Raelians infiltrating the U.S.

“It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ!”

But this does tell us that even the traditional interpretation of asylum and refugee law has its problems, not counting the unlawful expansion to Brazilian homosexuals and Mexican transvestites by the judiciary.

If Your Wrong, You Are Crazy

Hugh Hewitt, in a crazed desperation to keep Ron Paul from victory in the Iowa caucuses stated that anyone who claims that Israel supported HAMAS is crazy. Therefore Paul is crazy. (Hour 1, December 27, 2011. No link or transcript available from Hugh

While this blog has no truck for Paul, it does have an ongoing problem with Hewitt's support for amnesty, and his support for real crazy people, like Mike Allen, Chris Cilliza, and Erwin Chemerinsky, welfare cheat shyster law school dean using taxpayer money to support radical left wing causes. This is one of Hewitt's supposed "Smart Guys."

But from the WSJ on the early Israeli support for HAMAS:

WSJ January 24, 2009 by Andrew Higgins

Surveying the wreckage of a neighbor's bungalow hit by a Palestinian rocket, retired Israeli official Avner Cohen traces the missile's trajectory back to an "enormous, stupid mistake" made 30 years ago.

"Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel's creation," says Mr. Cohen, a Tunisian-born Jew who worked in Gaza for more than two decades. Responsible for religious affairs in the region until 1994, Mr. Cohen watched the Islamist movement take shape, muscle aside secular Palestinian rivals and then morph into what is today Hamas, a militant group that is sworn to Israel's destruction.

Instead of trying to curb Gaza's Islamists from the outset, says Mr. Cohen, Israel for years tolerated and, in some cases, encouraged them as a counterweight to the secular nationalists of the Palestine Liberation Organization and its dominant faction, Yasser Arafat's Fatah. Israel cooperated with a crippled, half-blind cleric named Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, even as he was laying the foundations for what would become Hamas. Sheikh Yassin continues to inspire militants today; during the recent war in Gaza, Hamas fighters confronted Israeli troops with "Yassins," primitive rocket-propelled grenades named in honor of the cleric...

When Israel first encountered Islamists in Gaza in the 1970s and '80s, they seemed focused on studying the Quran, not on confrontation with Israel. The Israeli government officially recognized a precursor to Hamas called Mujama Al-Islamiya, registering the group as a charity. It allowed Mujama members to set up an Islamic university and build mosques, clubs and schools. Crucially, Israel often stood aside when the Islamists and their secular left-wing Palestinian rivals battled, sometimes violently, for influence in both Gaza and the West Bank.

"When I look back at the chain of events I think we made a mistake," says David Hacham, who worked in Gaza in the late 1980s and early '90s as an Arab-affairs expert in the Israeli military. "But at the time nobody thought about the possible results."

Blow back is a bitch, but the real issue is that not only is Hewitt wrong, Israel did help HAMAS as a counterweight to the PLO, but the issue of Hewitt claiming that if you are wrong on the facts, you are crazy. Well, this first makes Hewitt crazy. But Hewitt is notorious for his support for real crazy people who really do believe in ahistorical facts, specifically his "Smart Guy" Chemerinsky. Chemerinsky thinks that our Founding Fathers and the writers of the 14th Amendment supported abortion. Of course there is nothing in history or law that suggests any such thing. Abortion was a common law crime at the time of the Founding and both a common law crime as well as statutorily prohibited in many States at the time the 14th Amendment was written, passed Congress, and was ratified by the States. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying. And by Hewitt's definition quite crazy. One may support abortion, but one may not claim with honesty that it is protected by the Constitution.

Anyone knows that Paul will thankfully not win the Republican nomination for President. So just why is Hewitt so desperate on the Paul issue? Does he really think that Paul is a threat? It is hard to tell. But his desperation is palpable.

Most likely this is related to his continuing effort to be a gatekeeper for what is acceptable discourse in public for the right. Hewitt has claimed that any talk of Obama being a Marxist is unacceptable and was out in front defending Obama on not releasing his birth certificate. Without any evidence prior to the release of the birth certificate caused by The Donald, Hewitt was absolute on his prohibitions on discussing the issue. Similarly, Hewitt is a big supporter of amnesty, just not for criminals or terrorists. As if the last amnesty did not also have a similar prohibition that was not very effective.
