Insurance For Immigrants: Been There, Done That, Sort Of

The ever innovative and intelligent Steve Sailer has a post on the problem of problematic immigrants, e.g. those aliens who come to the United States legally and who become a drag on society through welfare use, crime, lassitude, or just general overall failure as individuals. [Immigration Insurance, Steve Sailer, Taki's Magazine, December 23, 2015]  An interesting idea, and if imposed, it would be a useful system, not only for reimbursing the tax payer for immigrant failures, but for developing statistical models for which immigrants are good for America and which aren't.  
Not that we really haven't solved that problem anyway.  We know which immigrant groups are on welfare and engage in crime, the two areas where the taxpayer and Americans suffer from immigration.  It's Dominicans, Mexicans, and other Latin Americans who lead on welfare use, with other groups trailing by large numbers.  We also know overall, immigrants use welfare more than native born Americans. While it is appreciated that more information is better than less, the real issue has been solved.  We know who the slackers, welfare cheats, and criminals are, but, of course, finding out which sub-group in the know group that provides welfare cheats and criminals would help improve the current immigration system.  But that is not really a solution unless there is enforcement that follows the useful information and that is unlikely as Sailer acknowledges without a means to enforce the findings, which is unlikely unless there is an incentive, such is changes in Federal tort statutes involving inaction by the Federal government.

Interestingly, similar systems have been tried before.  First, the civil forfeiture provisions of Title 8 United States Code Section 1325, Improper Entry By An Alien.  This statute prohibits entry without inspection and the use of fraud or false statements by an alien in attempting to or successfully entering the United States.  Besides criminal penalties, it also has a civil penalties section where there is a fine for the offense, unrelated to a criminal conviction.  This fine may be administratively imposed by the Federal government without a hearing, but it can be both appealed or imposed through a hearing before the Executive Office For Immigration Review (EOIR).  It reads:

(b) Improper time or place; civil penalties Any alien who is apprehended while entering (or attempting to enter) the United States at a time or place other than as designated by immigration officers shall be subject to a civil penalty of - (1) at least $50 and not more than $250 for each such entry (or attempted entry); or (2) twice the amount specified in paragraph (1) in the case of an alien who has been previously subject to a civil penalty under this subsection. 

This is the oldest section of law that imposes a cost other than deportation or criminal penalties for illegal immigration, but, as will be seen, is as unused as all the other civil penalties for illegal immigration.  It is almost never used, despite the ease of imposing penalties and the ready availability of monies seized from illegal aliens first by the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and now by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

In 1996, Congress gave impacted employees standing to sue employers of illegal aliens using the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statutes in the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA).  There was an initial flurry of lawsuits, such as the Tyson Foods lawsuit, but to date, despite strong penalties and incentive for private enforcement, not much has developed in the area.

The next development, much akin to the Sailer proposal, was the requirement in the IIRIRA was requiring all new immigrants to obtain a sponsor who signs an Affidavit of Support for the alien, Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, promising to pay if the alien becomes a public charge, e.g. uses welfare.  However, again, through various machinations redefining deviancy down, most Federal and State welfare programs are not defined as welfare programs, including food stamps. Combined with the policy not to enforce the deportation of those who become public charges, e.g. violate section 212(a)(4), Public Charge, of the Immigration and Nationality Act, neither the affidavit of support or the public charge laws have been enforced since the election of Bill Clinton as official and unofficial policy.

So, there are similar laws to what Sailer proposes, but he notices that enforcement is a problem. The government won't enforce laws against against welfare use, illegal aliens, or against criminal aliens.

The secret is to make enforcement of immigration laws more like the enforcement of environmental laws, e.g. give private persons the authority to act to enforce immigration law remedies either directly in a court, such as the EOIR or through an act of mandamus forcing a government official to take action.  As in environmental laws, the private actor will be given a portion of the lawsuit and legal costs, including the costs of the private investigation and wide discovery including access to Federal and State records necessary to identify and prosecute illegal aliens.  This would be similar to the False Claims Act (FCA), a Civil War statute, that encouraged private actors to sue government contractors who defraud the government.  Here the qui tam prosecution by a private person is acting in the interests of the sovereign and receives much of the benefits, upwards of 35% of penalties.

The important aspects of a new law allowing for private prosecution, an immigration qui tam provision, would be a financial reward for the private actor, access to records, and mandatory deportation of the alien in event of success.  This is the private solution that Steve Sailer is looking for.

Another Reason Not To Eat At Chipotle

Besides the fact that Chipotle's business model is based on illegal immigration, the food Chipotle's serves will kill you. It has had a problem with sanitation and safe food handling for some time. And that is undoubtedly related to it's hiring practices favoring illegal aliens from Third World countries with no tradition or expectation of personal hygiene.  And the problem is getting worse.

FDA And CDC Probe Second Wave Of Chipotle E. Coli Outbreak
With new E. coli cases, 12 states are now affected. Source still unknown.
Amid an ongoing E. coli outbreak investigation at Chipotle Mexican Grill, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday announced that it is joining the effort to investigate what may be a second wave of illnesses linked to the chain restaurant. The new illnesses are caused by the same type of E. coli found in the previous cases—Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O26 (STEC 026)—but with a different, rare genetic variant.
To investigate this second wave, the FDA has combined forces with state and local authorities, plus the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which on Monday first announced an investigation into five cases of the variant E. coli infections. Those cases included one in Kansas, one in North Dakota, and three in Oklahoma. The sickened people from Kansas and North Dakota reportedly ate at the same Chipotle restaurant in Kansas before falling ill. The three sickened in Oklahoma were separate cases, but all three reportedly ate at the same Chipotle, the FDA reported.
The new cases, if confirmed, would bring the new E. coli outbreak numbers to 58 sickened and 12 states affected. The other states linked are California (3 cases), Illinois (1), Maryland (1), Minnesota (2), New York (1), Ohio (3), Oregon (13), Pennsylvania (2), and Washington (27). All of the cases involve some form of the STEC 026 bacteria.

This blog has long documented Chipotle's business model based on hiring illegal aliens and has been doing so from the start of it's founding, with documentation of their policy of hiring illegal aliens from as far back as 2010 surfacing.  There was an ICE SVU criminal investigation of Chipotle, but the case was apparently ended with no action after a few arrests, but most were merely fired, not arrested. Undoubtedly related to Chipotle's hiring of former ICE SVU head Julie Myers to head it's defense team.  In fact, Chipotle has a business model based on low wage workers, not technology, and the CEO of Chipotle's admits it.  And you can't have low wages without using illegal immigration, as Chipotle's is finding out as it avoids raising wages and fires legal workers who unionize

Chipotle's is a threat to your health and hates American workers.  Why not just avoid dying from E. coli and undermining American workers by not eating where the food might kill you?

On The Counter Proposal: Better Fraud Investigation Of Immigration Benefits

Donald Trump is in the news for the sensible proposition that Muslim immigration should be halted until the problem with Muslim terrorism in the United States can be solved.  Those who know Islam know that means a permanent bar to Muslim immigration until those numbers are reduced to that level common in the 1950s.  All thinking people know that Islam is an inherently violent religion from its inception, with violence, terror and death following in its wake.  At any numbers over 0.5% of the population, Mulsims are a real threat.

Some have responded, like Peter Brimelow, with a call to deal with the 5th column of Muslim traitors, terrorists, and sympathizers, the sea in which a guerrilla swims, by expelling all Muslims.  A good and necessary idea.  That is clearly what must be done.  However, not all that must be done, will be done. Steve Sailer suggests a half-measure, have the Federal government screen aliens better. That, of course, is possible.  There is no ideological screening of aliens today. Witness the open support for terrorism that Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik expressed openly to family, friends, neighbors, and to the public via the internet.

All well and good, but expensive.  Clearly that cost though can be born by the aliens themselves through higher fees on immigrant and non-immigrant visas.  There is precedent for that, as all H-1b visas have a fraud fee attached, in the case of H-1b visas that fee is $500.00, which goes to fraud investigations by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Fraud Detection and National Security for their anti-fraud programs in the H-1b area.

In the spirit of half-measures, let at least the half-measures be effective.  And to be effective in countering the already radicalized Muslim, and for other frauds, infiltrators, and malafide aliens, it must be more than interviewing family and friends, checking the nature of educational institutions attended, and reviewing social media.  All of those have their own problems; friends and family will lie, the aliens themselves won't admit to attending problematic madrases, and social media can be scrubbed or contain misleading information.  Alien Muslim terrorists can easily adapt to a review of these issues.

However, there is something that can look into their souls and get at the truth. The Psychophysiological Detection of Deception (PPD) programs, popularly known as polygraph or lie detector systems, administered by the Federal government can be an invaluable tool in ferreting out deception in visa applications.  At the Federal level, the Department of Defense dominates PPD training and administration at the National Center for Credibility Assessment.

PPD examinations are scientifically valid and overwhelmingly accurate.  Those examinations, usually lasting 2-3 hours, not including preparation time by the examiner, nor including any subsequent interrogation when deception is found, are not cheap.  However, given that the dollar cost would be born by the alien, and that not all aliens would require such exams, e.g. profiling would reduce the exam rate to those aliens who represent a terrorist, national security, or fraud threat, the exams would be limited to such consular posts and USCIS offices that deal with high fraud threat nationals, e.g. nationals from predominately Muslim nations, all Chinese nationals, and all nationals from poor countries.

As a political compromise, and as a half measure, all Muslims should be subjected to a PPD screening as part of any application for a visa, application for participation in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) as part of the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) system by which aliens using the VWP are pre-screened in intelligence and law enforcement data bases before they are allowed to enter the United States without a visa, as should be all Muslims who apply for any immigration benefit in the United States, such as extension of stay, adjustment of status, legal permanent residency, and naturalization.  Other groups that should be targeted include ethnic Chinese because of the intelligence threat, and any national from source county for illegal immigration, such as Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Philippines, India, Korea, Ecuador, and Vietnam for example, but any country with high visa denial rates or high over-stay rates would be subject to this requirement.  A concomitant benefit would be that the program would discourage who intend to immigrate illegally by overstaying a visa would be discouraged at no cost to the United States as they would fear being caught before even applying. This would though direct those aliens to illegal immigration, but a wall would help stop that.  The fee necessary to administer the program would be approximately $1,000.00, a cost solely born by the alien and a deterrent in itself, as even jihadis don't want to waste their money.

Many will claim that the polygraph can be beaten.  Generally, that's not so.  In the community they say that the polygraph can't be beaten, only the polygrapher.  This was the case with Aldrich Ames, whose relationship with his polygrapher, not the exam, enabled him to remain at the Central Intelligence Agency for so long while spying for the Soviet Union.  While someone highly trained, and with the use of certain prescription drugs may be able to beat the polygraph, few can.  And jihadis just don't have the resources or the population to recruit from to find many who can beat the box.

So, as a first step, let us start using PPD to screen aliens seeking to enter the United States, starting with the greatest threats, Muslims intending or holding jihadist views and Chinese who represent an intelligence threat, and include those poor saps from the Third World intending to immigrate illegally via a visa.

Its only a half-measure to the real solution, but an effective one.

An Ongoing Problem That Is Increasing

Fraud in immigration problems has been an ongoing problem, and not addressed with vigor by any administration, but the Obama Regime has been singular in ignoring fraud in immigration programs, witness the fraudulent address that Tashfeen Malik used on her K-1 visa application.  Breitbart is reporting that in addition to not interviewing applicants for tourist (B-2) visas and business (B-1) visas, the Obama Regime has instructed the State Department to not interview K-1 visa applicants as part of their campaign to allow more illegal aliens into the United States.  This writer has reported on the campaign by the Obama Regime to loosen visa screening at U.S. diplomatic posts overseas issuing visas, but had not heard until today that K-1 visa holders were exempted interviews.

The K-1 visa is essentially an immigrant visa based on marriage, except that the alien in question has not yet married the sponsoring American citizen and the visa is a non-immigrant visa.  While it is unlikely that Malik would have been denied an immigrant visa if she had been interviewed as is the current policy for immigrant visa applicants, as opposed to non-immigrant visa applicants, that opens another issue, in that visa screening interviews are not designed to deal with.  It used to be that either a K-1 or a immigrant visa based on marriage were both as difficult to obtain, both taking about 1 year from start to visa issuance.  However, it appears that as part of its program to flood the nation with aliens, the Obama Regime has ended all screening interviews for K-1 visas.

But even in the United States fraud in the immigrant visa and naturalization processes continues. This was highlighted in Chicago where an all to common fraud scheme was uncovered and actually prosecuted.  In this scheme, those aliens who don't want to learn English or take the civics test, a mere 10 questions where one only has to get 6 correct, used notes from physicians to avoid learning English or civics.

Chicago Tribune December 4, 2015 by Tony Briscoe
Psychiatrist, Counselor Charged With Falsifying Reports For Immigrants
A psychiatrist and a counselor at a Chicago medical practice have been charged with falsely diagnosing immigrants as disabled to help them bypass some tests for U.S. citizenship.
Dr. Marek Walczyk, a psychiatrist, and Katarzyna Fergemann, a counselor who worked in the same Northwest Side practice, are accused of fraudulently reporting that applicants for U.S. citizenship were suffering from a physical or mental impairment, prosecutors said.
They falsely claimed that those impairments rendered them unable to demonstrate the required knowledge of United States history and the English language, according to the indictment announced Thursday.
A medical certification of impairment allows individuals to seek an exemption from the civics and English-language tests required for naturalized U.S. citizenship.
According to the indictment, Fergemann reported an applicant had a learning disability as a result of suffering from a social anxiety disorder, panic disorder and major depressive disorder, even though she knew the person did not suffer from a physical or mental impairment.
Walczyk subsequently certified Fergemann's results in a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services form, allowing for that person to forgo the civics and English-language tests required for citizenship.

Such schemes are common and little effort expended by USCIS to stop it, with the connivance of the Obama Regime in its effort to get new voters on the rolls to elect a new people.

Hispanic Vote Fraud In Texas Continues

Hispanic vote fraud continues in Texas, as undoubtedly else where as well, but Texas, especially the Rio Grande Valley, lead the news in such immigrant based crime, thanks most likely to an aggressive Republican Attorney General.

In the first case, the long running saga of the Weslaco City Commission election and Hispanic Democrat Lupe Rivera Sr. was indicted for vote fraud, something common enough in Mexico, and the colonized areas of the Rio Grande Valley, the epicenter for the surge of illegals this and last summer. October 15, 2015 by Kenric Ward
Democratic Party Boss Takes A Hit In Texas Vote-Fraud Case
A client of Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa is facing 16 criminal charges of rigging votes in a Rio Grande Valley election.
Lupe Rivera Sr. illegally handled ballots and envelopes in his closely contested Weslaco City Commission race, according to the state attorney general’s office. Rivera won the 2013 election by 16 votes, but a court ruled that 30 ballots were illegally cast.
Rivera is set to be arraigned on Nov. 18 — 15 days after he squares off again against Letty Lopez in a scheduled rematch.
While Rivera remains innocent until proven guilty, the criminal charges against him are a blow to Hinojosa, who has relentlessly criticized Texas’ photo ID law and downplays the potential for election fraud.
Lopez’s attorney, Jerad Najvar, said the Weslaco case “sets a legal precedent that voting residency requirements and the mail-in ballot rules that protect elderly voters from coercion will be enforced.
“This is a critical victory that helps fight election fraud across the Rio Grande Valley.”
Two courts determined Rivera’s re-election was aided by a string of forgeries, false addresses and “flexible residencies.”

The second story is from further north in Texas, but still Hispanic.  In this case, the voter is a legal alien, a legal permanent resident who has not yet been naturalized.

Attorney General's Office, State of Texas Press Release, November 9, 2015
Texas Attorney General’s Office and Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office Arrest Tarrant County Resident for Voter Fraud
The Texas Attorney General’s Office has arrested Tarrant County resident Rosa Maria Ortega for two counts of illegal voting, a second degree felony. The case is being prosecuted by the Criminal Prosecutions Division with assistance from Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson’s Office.
“Protecting the integrity of elections is essential to our democracy and a top priority of my administration,” said Attorney General Paxton. “As long as there are criminals seeking to exploit our system of elections, we stand ready to investigate, prosecute and restore confidence that the will of the people of Texas is heard.”
Ortega is not a United States citizen and is identified as a legal resident and a citizen of Mexico. Upon discovery of the possible illegal voting offense, Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office referred the illegal voting allegations to the Texas Attorney General’s Office.

Also of note, is that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Special Victims Unit, ICE SVU, was not involved and did not enforce a Federal statute that makes aliens who vote subject to criminal prosecution and deportation.

Both these cases occurred as the Obama Regime is fighting the Texas voter identification statute in an effort to encourage more Hispanics, legal or illegal, to vote.  It does however expose a loophole in the Texas Voter ID statute, as a driver's license or identification card are valid identification to vote, and legal permanent residents are eligible for both.  Clearly an voter ID statute must include either a unique identification card, as in Mexico, or a unique addition to a driver's license or identification card indicating U.S. citizenship.

The larger problem is both legal and illegal immigration that have created a Brown Run Border, corruption levels akin to that in Mexico, and a population alienated from the Historic American Nation.

The Real Problem With The Border Patrol: #CrimingWhileHispanic

There is a problem with the Border Patrol and other components of the Department of Homeland Security on the border with Mexico.  It is not, however, a problem with too many shootings or abuse of illegal aliens.  The problem is, as this writer routinely reports, a BRB, Brown Run Border. Corruption within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is real, and growing, but it is a problem of a particular group of employees that Border Patrol hires, Hispanics.

Cultural Marxists claim that the problem on the border is racial profiling and trigger happy Border Patrol Agents, where the reality is that racial profiling is legal and it's the Border Patrol that is under attack.  The Obama Regime responds by indicting innocent Border Patrol Agents, while the real problem is corrupt Hispanic Border Patrol Agents and Customs and Border Protection Officers.

And while the myth of Border Patrol brutality is in the press, the reality of Hispanic criminality in the Border Patrol is downplayed or ignored.  While the race of white police officers who use force on black suspects is always the lead in the news, it is never the lead in these following stories about Hispanic corruption and misconduct in DHS.

Did A Border Patrol Agent Aid A Mexican Cartel Decapitation?
A Border Patrol agent in south Texas faces murder charges in connection with what authorities say was a Mexican cartel killing that left a decapitated body floating off the coast of South Padre Island this year.
Border Patrol Agent Joel Luna, 30, was assigned to the Hebbronville station, about 165 miles northwest of the island, and had worked for the agency six years. He was placed on administrative leave after his arrest last week, officials said.
Luna is charged with capital murder, possession of a controlled substance, engaging in organized criminal activity and tampering with evidence in the death of Jose Francisco Rodriguez Palacios Paz, 33, a Honduran immigrant.

Then, not surprising given Mexican age of consent laws:

Ex-Border Patrol Agent In Texas Gets 6 Years For Sex Assault
EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A former U.S. Border Patrol agent in West Texas has been sentenced to six years in prison for having sex with a 15-year-old girl.
The El Paso Times  reports 29-year-old Luis Angel Lozada pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault and three counts of sexual performance of a child.
Court records indicate Lozada was sentenced last week to six years in state prison on each count, with the terms running currently.
Prosecutors say Lozada had a sexual relationship with the teenager for more than a year before his arrest last March by El Paso police. Lozada was placed on administrative leave following his arrest.

Ex-US Customs Officer Pleads Guilty In Arizona Drug Case
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A former U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer has pleaded guilty to conspiring to smuggle marijuana into Arizona and accepting bribes to let drug loads through the Douglas port of entry.
Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Johnny G. Acosta pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Tucson to conspiracy to import more than 2,200 pounds of marijuana between September 2010 and September 2013.
They say Acosta also pleaded guilty to accepting thousands of dollars in bribes to allow drug-loaded vans from Mexico to cross the Douglas port without inspection.
Prosecutors say Acosta faces at least seven years in prison when he's sentenced Jan. 12.

There is a problem on the border, but its not that too many illegals are arrested and its not shootings by Border Patrol Agents; the problem is Hispanic crime within the Border Patrol and DHS.  But the left which prominently mentions race when white law enforcement officers are involved in allegations of misconduct, never mentions the race most often involved in what few corruption and abuse cases occur, Hispanics.

Time To Strike While The Iron Is Hot

The recent United States Court of Appeals For the 5th Circuit decision on State challenges to the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) amnesty for illegal aliens was even broader and more detailed than the original decision by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.  As reported by James Kirkpatrick and Brenda Walker at VDare, the decision strikes at the heart of the ongoing Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty and, in particular, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty.

From the decision:

DAPA would make 4.3 million otherwise removable aliens eligible for lawful presence, employment authorization, and associated benefits, and “we must be guided to a degree by common sense as to the manner in which Congress is likely to delegate a policy decision of such economic and political
magnitude to an administrative agency.”  DAPA undoubtedly implicates “question[s] of deep ‘economic and political significance’ that [are] central to this statutory scheme; had Congress wished to assign that decision to an agency, it surely would have done so expressly.” But assuming arguendo that Chevron applies and that Congress has not directly addressed the precise question at hand, we would still strike down DAPA as an unreasonable interpretation that is “manifestly contrary” to the INA [Immigration and Nationality Act, Ed.]...
The interpretation of those provisions that the Secretary advances would allow him to grant lawful presence and work authorization to any illegal alien in the United States—an untenable position in light of the INA’s intricate system of immigration classifications and employment eligibility. Even with “special deference” to the Secretary, the INA flatly does not permit the reclassification of millions of illegal aliens as lawfully present and thereby make them newly eligible for a host of federal and state benefits, including work authorization.

So, the Obama Regime has not only lost on the administrative implementation of DAPA, but also on the underlying legality.  And therein lies an opening, an opening that this writer predicted would appear when reviewing the original decision by the District Court, the same legal reasoning applies to DACA; the States have standing to challenge and have DACA overturned as well.  Furthermore, 

Hopefully Chris Crane, head of the National ICE Council (NICEC), and Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, will take up the mantle and challenge DACA in the 5th Circuit.  And the likelihood of overturning DACA is very real, as the Regime realized back in 2013, when it tried to negotiate the issue with Crane and the NICEC

The Court of Appeals plainly stated that it recognized that DHS was engaged in its own jihad against employees who refused to participate in the illegality, clearly hinting that the implicit illegality of DACA would provide standing to any DHS employee disciplined for refusing to illegally provide benefits to illegal aliens:

In denying the government’s motion for a stay of the injunction, the district court further noted that the President had made public statements suggesting that in reviewing applications pursuant to DAPA, DHS officials who “don’t follow the policy” will face “consequences,” and “they’ve got a problem.”

The clear cut decision by the 5th Circuit shows that the Regime doesn't have a legal basis for its amnesty and it's time for Crane and Kobach to strike back with a lawsuit on behalf of DHS employees who refuse to implement DACA and DAPA and thereby are upholding their Oath of Office to see that the Constitution and the laws of the United States are faithfully executed.

Suddenly Race Isn't A Social Construct

It's a scientific reality and you can tell someone's race just by looking at them. Apparently race is not a social construct.  Cultural Marxists are up in arms that Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers aren't good at determining the race of criminals.  Despite George Zimmerman, there are no white Hispanics!

KXAN November 6, 2015 By Brian Collister and Joe Ellis
Texas Troopers Ticketing Hispanic Drivers As White
DPS troopers are inaccurately recording the race of large numbers of minority drivers, mostly Hispanic, as white, according to a KXAN investigation. The agency's traffic stop data reveals racial profiling reports are likely flawed, according to experts.
Sergio Raul Mejia got a traffic citation for having his license plate on the dash of his truck in Georgetown last May. The Texas Department of Public Safety trooper who pulled Mejia over put his race as white on the ticket.
"That's bad," said Mejia. "I'm Hispanic. He was not supposed to put white people," Mejia continued, speaking in broken English. "You don't think you look white?" asked KXAN Investigator Brian Collister. "No, Hispanic," replied Mejia.

A Texas law aimed at preventing racial profiling requires peace officers determine and document the race of every driver to whom they issue a written warning, traffic citation or arrest during a traffic stop. The statute says officers must report: “the person's race or ethnicity, as stated by the person or, if the person does not state the person's race or ethnicity, as determined by the officer to the best of the officer's ability.” White and Hispanic are just two categories listed in the law, which treats race and ethnicity the same for purposes of gathering the statistics.

Of course, Hispanic has no legal or scientific meaning, other than linguistically.  A Spanish language surname has no relation to race, just ask Francisco Franco or Augusto Pinochet.  However, race is real, but in a world where Shaun King and Rachel Dolezal can call themselves black, how is one to fault these troopers?  The Cultural Marxists can't have it both ways. They either have to accept that race is real or claim it is a social construct.  They can't have it both ways.

It's Not The Law, But Politics Involved In Indictments Of Federal Agents

The Cultural Marxist, dare I say communist, media is again complaining about law enforcement officers and the use of deadly force.  The twist this time is the issue of State officers acting as Federal agents, their use of deadly force, and the shootings they are involved in.  The Marxists complain that local officers are being shielded by Federal law from prosecution.  Whatever the ostensible reason that the Cultural Marxists are complaining, it's politics that determines who gets indicted or gets immunity in shootings involving Federal agents, as with local police officers. Now the facts are supposed to rule in such decision, but in the below case, the local prosecutor ignored the facts and indicted a white officer only because he shot a black career criminal.

First, the complaint about an obscure shooting, predictibly involving a career black bank robber and the Austin Police Department (APD) detective who shot the criminal during a pursuit after a bank robbery.

How Law Enforcement Officers Can Kill Someone And Avoid Prosecution
Families of people killed by police rarely see the officers taken to trial. It was supposed to be different for the children of Larry Jackson Jr.: The Austin police detective who shot and killed Jackson was scheduled to be tried this week for manslaughter.
At the last minute, however, a judge dismissed the case against the white detective, Charles Kleinert, ruling that he was acting as a member of a federal task force in 2013 when he shot Jackson, an unarmed black man.
As a federal agent at the time, the judge ruled, Kleinert is shielded from state prosecution.
The ruling stunned Jackson’s family, whose attorney called it a “great civil rights injustice,” and dismayed the local prosecutor, who has vowed to appeal. Meanwhile, the case is shining a spotlight on a legal tactic rarely used in criminal cases, one that raises the question of when, if ever, a federal law enforcement officer can be charged with a crime for killing someone in the line of duty.

In fact, Kleinert was not given immunity because he was acting as a member of a Federal bank robbery task force, but because the judge in the Federal court looked at the evidence, and determined that Kleinert used a reasonable level of force.

KXAN September 30, 2015 by Chris Sadeghi
Kleinert Tells, Reenacts Actions That Led To Fatal Shooting
“I was crushed. I was devastated,” said Kleinert about Jackson’s death. But when asked multiple times if the actions he took were necessary to his job as an officer, Kleinert stood firm each and every time in saying he was performing his duties.
Although he was an APD employee at the time, Kleinert’s defense team argues because he was serving in the capacity of a federal agent at the time of the July 26, 2013 shooting, the case should be dropped based on a federal immunity statute. They have already successfully convinced Judge Lee Yeakel to try the case in federal court rather than a Travis County District Court.
The hearing to dismiss is expected to last three days with multiple witnesses testifying before Yeakel will make any rulings.
While on the stand, Kleinert said he was serving on the Central Texas Violent Crimes Task Force and investigating a robbery at the Benchmark Bank near Shoal Creek when Jackson approached the bank. After a conversation with Jackson, Kleinert believed him to be a bank fraud suspect and pursued when Jackson tried to run away on foot. After commanding a driver to give him a ride, Kleinert said he encountered Jackson coming out from underneath a bridge over Shoal Creek.

The KXAN article shows just how factually incorrect the WaPo article was.  There was no immunity, as Kleinert's was tried in a Federal court on the manslaughter charges, but the judge dismissed the charges based on the facts of the case, e.g. Kleinert was acting reasonably when the black criminal Larry Jackson was killed while resisting arrest.  Jackson made several mistakes, aside from the mistake of robbing banks, including the mistake of attacking a police officer who had a gun in his hand while resisting arrest.  In fact, it is clear from the testimony that Jackson was killed accidentally.

Which brings us to the local prosecutor, who appears to be a politically motivated member of the terrorist group #BlackLivesMatter, a group that attacks police officers and demonstrates on behalf of black criminals who attack police officers, led by a notorious homosexual and racist Deray McKesson, who also has a strange obsession with puffy vests.

Interestingly, the WaPo supported the transfer of cases involving shootings by Federal agents from State courts in the similar case of Lon Horiuchi, who followed illegal shoot-to-kill orders from FBI managers at Ruby Ridge:

On June 10, 1994, the Task Force delivered its 542-page report to the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility. The Report stated: "With regard to the two shots fired on August 22, we concluded that the first shot met the standard of 'objective reasonableness' the Constitution requires for the legal use of deadly force but that the second shot did not satisfy that standard."

Clearly, in the case of Horiuchi, there was no factual basis to remove his case from State jurisdiction, which the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals later determined.

Worse yet, Horiuchi and other Federal agents were not following Department of Justice policy on Use of Force, but using shoot-to-kill orders that violated law and Supreme Court precedent decision:

The Ruby Ridge Rules of Engagement (ROE) had been drawn up on the basis of reports from the headquarters of the USMS and FBI, bolstered by unconfirmed news media accounts accepted by HQ, that exaggerated the threat posed by the Weavers.
If any adult male is observed with a weapon prior to the announcement, deadly force can and should be employed, if the shot can be taken without endangering any children.
If any adult in the compound is observed with a weapon after the surrender announcement is made, and is not attempting to surrender, deadly force can and should be employed to neutralize the individual.
If compromised by any animal, particularly the dogs, that animal should be eliminated.
Any subjects other than Randall Weaver, Vicki Weaver, Kevin Harris, presenting threats of death or grievous bodily harm, the FBI rules of deadly force are in effect. Deadly force can be utilized to prevent the death or grievous bodily injury to oneself or that of another.
Note how at Ruby Ridge, the FBI imposed two use of force policies, the first highlighted policy was in violation of the Department of Justice Use of Force Policy (note the policy governed all law enforcement officers since 1985 after the Tennessee v. Garner decision on use of deadly force by law enforcement officers) and the second highlighted that the DOJ policy was in force for other subjects at Ruby Ridge. The first violated Garner while the second was in compliance with Garner.

Worse yet, WaPo claims that Federal officers aren't charged in State courts, but it is quite frequent for Border Patrol Agents to be charged in State courts for murder, as in the case of Nicholas Corbett, who was charged with murder in the death of an illegal alien smuggler, despite the fact that he was acting in the official scope of his duties.  The WaPo deliberately deceives the reader by claiming that all Federal agents are immune from State prosecution, but that is not true.  It is a political decision for the Federal government to intervene in such cases where the Federal agent is acting in his official capacity but charged with a State crime for that action.

In the Corbett and Kleinert cases, local prosecutors acted for political reasons where there was no evidence of a crime.  Note that the Cochise County prosecutor was so desperate politically to prosecute Corbett, it took two hung juries for the persecution of Corbett to end, and in the case of Kleinert, it was his shooting of a black criminal that engendered prosecution.  And note that it was Clinton's war on guns that motivated the interference in the local prosecution of Horiuchi, who was found to have violated DOJ policy in the DOJ's own investigation.

For the prosecution of law enforcement officers, it is clear that who you shoot is more important than the actual facts surrounding the shooting. But one can always rely on the press to get the facts and law wrong, especially if it involves a black or illegal alien.  And despite the WaPo's claim that the Federal government doesn't indict Federal agents, look at the cases of Lonnie Swartz, who was indicted for shooting an attacker from across the border.

All this is a case of Cultural Marxists creating a problem that doesn't exist on the behalf of black and Hispanic criminals.

Looks Like #cuckservative Paul Ryan Got His Amnesty

The final part of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty has been leaked.  It appears that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is openly contemplating giving employment authorization to the 20-30 million illegal aliens in the United States.  Interesting enough, it appears that the Slave Power, Zuckerberg, etc. are against this as it will enable H-1Bs and L-1s to escape from indentured servitude.  The memorandum appears to be a discussion of a complete amnesty disguised as a granting of an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) to those who have filed for an immigrant visa based on employment in the United States, Form I-140, Immigrant Petition For Alien Worker, but the scope of the discussion in the memorandum is well beyond those aliens with an employer legally able to sponsor a worker. Clearly the discussion is about a general amnesty using EADs.  Interestingly enough, there is no discussion on the legality of the action, only the political and economic consequences.

The Hill November 02, 2015 By Ian M. Smith
Leaked DHS Memo Shows Obama Might Circumvent DAPA Injunction
A newly leaked internal DHS memorandum produced for an off-the-record agency conclave reveals that the Obama administration is actively planning to circumvent a federal court injunction that suspended part of last November’s deferral-based amnesty initiative. The document, apparently prepared as follow-up from a DHS “Regulations Retreat” last summer, appears sure to re-ignite concerns in Congress as well as federal judges in the Fifth Circuit. The Administration has already been criticized from the bench for handing out work permits to hundreds of thousands of deferred action beneficiaries, in direct violation of a district court’s order. With the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals deciding any day now whether to deny the Administration’s request to reverse that injunction, this public leak has come at a critical juncture for U.S. enforcement policy. 
Last June, four months after Texas federal judge Andrew Hanen’s order to freeze President’s DAPA and Expanded DACA programs—disclosure: the Immigration Reform Law Institute has filed briefs in these cases—DHS’s immigration policy makers apparently held a “Regulations Retreat” to discuss “different options” for “open market Employment Authorization Document (EAD) regulatory changes.” EAD is the statutory term for work permits. From a memo recording these discussions, we now know that the Obama DHS has, rather than pausing to allow the courts to assess the constitutionality of its enforcement nullification initiatives, been gearing up to roll out one or more of four plans drawn up at the meeting, each one designed to provide EADs to millions of nonimmigrants, including those lawfully present and visa overstayers, crippling the actual employment-based visa system on the federal statute-book.

Now, to the uninitiated, it appears to be a win for the joint effort of the Slave Power and the Ethno-Cultural Marxists in their war on the historic American nation.  However, the debate in the memorandum appears to be between those anti-white racists and the Zuckerberg Slave Power.  The Slave Power has no interest in the great mass of illegal aliens as a bottom line.  They may generally hate whites, as is their wont, but that is not what they are in business for, which is profits, and the indentured servitude of H-1Bs, L-1s, and other non-immigrant visa holders is their primary interest in the amnesty debate.  Of the options, #4 excludes H-1Bs and L-1s, pandering to the Slave Power and the Treason Bar, forcing H-1Bs and L-1s to remain in indentured servitude and to leave that status requires the services of an attorney from the Treason Bar.

It appears that there is now a falling out between the brown racists and the Slave Power Zuckerberg Edition, who want amnesty for all, including the Facebook Google slaves.  Option 4 is clearly the one the Obama Regime is looking towards, but there appears to be a problem with the Marxists.

From their Facebook posting at Immigration Voice:

There is also background activity whereby immigration lawyers and companies are working very hard to derail EAD for I140 fix. They are trying all sorts of ways to derail or water down this fix that we have worked for years.
Immigration lawyers and companies want this fix to be only applied to those with 'Extraordinary Circumstances' i.e. where employee can show economic hardship, exploitation by employer etc. They are trying to water down so no more than 600 people in an year would be able to benefit from this fix.

However, there appear to be no options to fix this, which appears to be part of the plan, as this did not come out until the John Boehner-Paul Ryan surrender on the budget; two years for Obama to act without any chance of any budget riders restricting their expansion of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.  The Ryan-Obama fix appears to have been in from the start, no wonder Luis Gutierrez endorsed Ryan.

Well, Isn't This Interesting

It appears during the decision making process on whether to invade Pakistan with the intent of killing or capturing Osama Bin-Ladin, the Obama Regime came to the conclusion that the President was bound by American law, but not by international law.

NYT October 28, 2015 by Charlie Savage
How 4 Federal Lawyers Paved the Way to Kill Osama bin Laden
The lawyers decided that a unilateral military incursion would be lawful because of a disputed exception to sovereignty for situations in which a government is “unwilling or unable” to suppress a threat to others emanating from its soil.
Invoking this exception was a legal stretch, for two reasons. Many countries have not accepted its legitimacy. And there was no precedent for applying it to a situation in which the United States did not first ask Pakistan, which had helped with or granted consent for other counterterrorism operations. But given fears of a tip-off, the lawyers signed off on invoking the exception.
There was also a trump card. While the lawyers believed that Mr. Obama was bound to obey domestic law, they also believed he could decide to violate international law when authorizing a “covert” action, officials said.

Well, isn't that revealing. Especially considering that the Obama Regime has argued the opposite, at least as regards to domestic law.  Both publicly and before courts, especially during the Arizona controversy, the Regime has claimed that the President can ignore domestic law, especially if it involves any implication on foreign policy, and that deporting any alien is not part of domestic law, but of foreign policy.  Even more interesting is that it was Jeh Johnson who was arguing that the President can't ignore domestic law, or, more properly, American law, as opposed to international law.  Clearly the Obama Regime has an openly Marxist attitude to the law, the ends justify the means.

Profiling Is Back, And Treason Bar Infiltrators Are Involved

The issue of profiling is back again.  It appears that a former Treason Bar hack who has infiltrated the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Megan Mack, Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties at the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (OCLCR) at DHS, let one of her emails be leaked to the Los Angeles Times (LAT).  The transcriptionists at the LAT for the radical left then claim its a case of racial profiling without publishing the email.  It appears that this is a planted story designed to get two illegal alien felons released.

First, Mack is one of the Treason Bar shysters that have been hired by the Department of Homeland Security in the Office of Chief Counsel and part of the usurpation of immigration law professionals with Treason Bar acolytes and criminals.

Second, the misleading story itself:

LAT October 15, 2015 by Joseph Tanfani and Brian Bennett
Homeland Security Email Points To Ongoing Racial Profiling By Local Police
An internal email from a Department of Homeland Security lawyer is raising questions about the ongoing use of ethnic profiling by local police against immigrants, despite an Obama administration effort to stop using the justice system to round up low-level suspects for deportation.
Two Honduran men, waiting for a ride to their construction job, were detained by Louisiana police in May on loitering charges because they looked Latino, according to a Sept. 21 Homeland Security email that was released inadvertently and obtained by the Los Angeles Times.
“The only basis for the arrest seems to have been to give Border Patrol an opportunity to run an immigration investigation,” wrote Megan H. Mack, head of the Homeland Security Department’s civil rights office, in her report to Sarah SaldaƱa, Immigration and Customs Enforcement director, and other ICE officials. “This is not a practice the department wishes to endorse or facilitate.”

The reporters, Tanfani and Bennett failed to provide a copy of the email itself, so the authenticity of the email and its contents cannot be verified, as is usual for the Cultural Marxist (Can I say Communist now Peter?) media. Contact the writers Tanfani at and Bennett at Tweet them here: @JTanfani and @ByBrianBennett.

Mack is a long time specialist in immigration law and not an attorney with real law experience. Immigration law has nothing to do with civil rights or civil liberties law.  It is a highly specialized practice that does not require membership in any bar association to practice before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), as it is not real law and not practiced in a real court, but in an executive branch administrative agency.  Its powder-puff to real football.  However, Mack was not hired for her civil rights law enforcement experience, nor obviously for her immigration law enforcement experience, but for her Treason Bar advocacy.

And she must be feeling frustrated, not only in this case of two previously deported illegal aliens who are in the process of being deported, but because the OCLCR is the Rodney Dangerfield of DHS, even under the Obama Regime.  The immigration law enforcement professionals, even those corrupted by the Regime, ignore it, as does the Office of Inspector General, the real professionals involved in investigating civil rights violations by employees.  It gets no respect.

So, because it is the red-headed step-child of DHS, Mack clearly decided to make a play in public for more power.  And it chose to illegally release confidential personnel information about aliens, protected by the Privacy Act of 1974, and confidential law enforcement information that is prohibited from release to the public.  That is why DHS never comments on any particular immigration case. Its generally illegal to release any information about an alien.  While a misdemeanor, it remains a criminal offense, and an impeachable offense as well.

Worse yet, Mack sought to have the two illegal aliens, who committed felonies by reentering after deportation in violation of Title 8 United States Code (USC) Section 1326, Reentry After Deportation, released into the United States:

Mack said the men posed no threat and should be released.

Not actually mentioned in the article is any evidence that the two illegal aliens were racially profiled. The only allegation is that the local police officer who first made contact with the loitering aliens was attempting to “... to give Border Patrol an opportunity to run an immigration investigation...”  Well, that's not illegal, nor is it racial profiling, and there is nothing illegal about racial profiling anyway as this blogger has explained at length.

Furthermore, Mack decries the assistance local police are giving to the Border Patrol, but there is nothing illegal about that, it's authorized by statute, 8 USC Section 1252c, Authorizing State and local law enforcement officials to arrest and detain certain illegal aliens, something a real attorney would have known, but not a bush league Treason Bar shyster. Perhaps that is why the real immigration lawyers at the ICE Office of the Principal Legal Advisor gave the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officials the go-ahead for deportation despite the lobbying by Mack.

Time for Congress to get to the bottom of this story and call Tanfani and Bennett before a committee of the House preparing articles of impeachment, its the only solution.

Update On The War On The Border Patrol

There have been two major developments in the Obama Regime War On The Border Patrol.  In the first, the Regime and the Treason Bar suffered an ignominious defeat but in the second, the Regime hit back at court decisions supporting the authority of Border Patrol Agents to act in self-defense against attacks on them from Mexico.

First, the good news.  The patriotic 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the same court that struck down parts of the DAPA amnesty, have handed the Obama Regime another defeat, ruling in the case of a Mexican alien smuggler who was shot while attacking Border Patrol Agents.  In this case the Treason Bar, with the quiet connivance of the Obama Regime, sued Border Patrol Agent Jesus Mesa for shooting terrorist and alien smuggler Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca.

LAT April 21, 2015 by Associated Press
Family Of Boy Killed By Border Patrol Can't Sue Agent In U.S., Court Rules
A U.S. Border Patrol agent who killed a Mexican teenager when he fired across the border from Texas into Mexico cannot be sued in U.S. courts by the boy’s family, a federal appeals court ruled...
The unanimous ruling was issued Friday by the full 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, reversing most of an earlier 2-1 ruling by a three-judge panel of the court. The border agent's lawyer said the opinion vindicated his client.
As expected, the court decided that aliens outside the United States don't have the protection of the Constitution, as in the case of the late Osama Bin-Ladin.
The full court rejected the family's contention that Mesa's immunity from a civil suit was superseded by the U.S. Constitution's 4th Amendment, which guarantees the right of “the people to be secure in their persons,” or by 5th Amendment protections against deprivation of life without due process of law.
A 4th Amendment claim cannot be asserted by a Mexican citizen on Mexican soil with no significant connection to the United States, the appeals court ruled.

However, in response to the loss in the 5th Circuit, as the Obama Regime was conspicuously silent in the Mesa case, the Regime decided to indict another Border Patrol Agent involved in a cross border shooting, Lonnie Swartz.  Importantly here, Swartz is white, while Mesa was Hispanic.  Undoubtedly this was a major factor in the decision to indict, given the Regime's War On White Police Officers.

Houston Chronicle September 24, 2015, by Astrid Galvan
Border Patrol Agent Is Indicted In 2012 Fatal Shooting
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A Border Patrol agent charged with second-degree murder in the death of a Mexican teen is one of only three agents to face murder charges in more than 20 years.
Lonnie Swartz was indicted Wednesday on one count of second-degree murder by a federal grand jury that reviewed the death of 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, who was hit about 10 times by bullets that went through a border fence.
"It's very rare for a Border Patrol agent to be charged criminally when the abuse or killing is on U.S. soil," said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the Immigrants' Rights Project for the American Civil Liberties Union.
In the case of a cross-border shooting with the victim on Mexican soil, the ACLU group did not know of any previous scenario in which a Border Patrol agent was indicted, Gelernt said.

Given the length of time between the incident and the indictment, politics is the only reason for the indictment, given the massive campaign by the radical left, including National Public Radio (NPR) the Treason Bar and the ACLU in the Rodriguez case.  Both groups are closely connected to drug cartels, with the Treason Bar financially dependent on Mexican illegal alien drug smugglers who pay large sums of cash for their criminal and immigration defenses and the ACLU is dependent on drug legalization advocates for fund raising.

Interesting, but unsurprisingly, in the 9th Circuit a civil suit continues Agent Swartz continues despite the smack down such lawsuits received in the 5th Circuit.  But in the end, this is part of the Obama Regime War On The Border Patrol.

Sadly though, this is having an effect on the Border Patrol as illegal immigration increases, defensive use of force is down despite widespread and continuing violence from Mexicans terrorists.

Communists Allege Racial Profiling

Reality is that there isn't enough racial profiling going on in the radical city of Berkeley, CA.  The well known communist front group, the communist National Lawyers Guild (NLG), announced a report on stops by the Berkeley Police Department (BPD) and claimed, to no one's surprise, that the BPD targets blacks in its proactive law enforcement efforts.

NBC Bay Area September 29, 2015 by  Rhea Mahbubani
Racial Profiling Rampant in Berkeley Police Department: Report
A group of Bay Area lawyers on Tuesday came out with harsh accusations against the Berkeley Police Department.
The National Lawyers Guild released data that, its members believe, proves racial profiling in police stops citywide between Jan. 18 and Aug. 12. The information was gathered via a Public Records Act request, according to the guild.
“This data substantiates the concerns expressed by numerous African-Americans about [the Berkeley Police Department] over-policing of the black community in Berkeley,” said Mansour Id-Deen, a longtime community activist and president of the Berkeley NAACP.
According to the United States Census Bureau, 116, 768 people reside in Berkeley. Whites represent roughly 60 percent of the city’s population followed by Asians at 19 percent, Latinos and Hispanics at 10 percent and blacks at 8 percent, the guild said.
Of 4,658 people stopped by Berkeley police, 1,710 were white, 1,423 black and 543 were Latino or Hispanic. So, despite being a minority in the city, blacks were approximately 32 percent of those flagged by police while whites were 38 percent of them, the guild said.

What the communist organization did not tell you, nor did the Indian reporter, is that Berkeley has a high crime rate compared to its neighbors, save adjacent Oakland, obviously, and Emeryville, crime rates in other nearby cities are much lower, and have lower black populations.

More importantly though, using black crime rates for the State of California, black crime is significantly higher than the white crime rate, in both percentages and absolute numbers.  Whites, of course, offend in percentages lower than their population, as do Asians.  Blacks, and Hispanics, offend at rates multiples of their percentage of the population.  The black population of California is about 6%, but the black crime rate ranges from a general rate of 27% of felony arrests, to between 40% to 50% of violent crimes, depending on which specific crime.

So, it is clear that the BPD is doing their job.  They are looking for serious felony criminal offenders in the pool of serious criminal offenders.  So, it is the typical lie of the left to accuse BPD of racial profiling, by which they mean the BPD is singling out blacks for no reason, except in the sense that they are profiling because the black community is where the crime is.  However, the communists at the NLG don't want the public to know the color of crime in Berkeley or California. Nor, for some strange reason, does the Indian immigrant and apparent transcriptionist for a communist front organization, Rhea Mahbubani.  Contact and inquire with her and her employer, the Bay Area News Group, here: (408) 920-5000.

George Will, We Know He's A #cuckservative, But Is He A Liar Or Stupid As Well?

Notorious #cuckservative George Will has pronounced on Donald Trump's plan to deport millions of illegal aliens in two years.  He claims that a police state would be necessary, with nightmare visions of midnight raids and millions of informants necessary to remove the 11-20 million illegal aliens in the United States.  As VDare has pointed out, as has the Federale blog, its been done before without any police state tactics, Operation Wetback, and executed by a moderate Republican that Will admires, as well as advocated another moderate Republican, Mitt Romney, who proposed an enforcement system based on a self-deportation scheme that could only happen if illegal aliens were too frightened to remain in the face of vigorous immigration enforcement. And Romney was correct in his proposed plan, as was Eisenhower and Jumpin' Joe Swing in their execution of Operation Wetback.

However, besides being incorrect in general, Will in wrong on the particulars of any current move against illegal aliens and the necessity for "police state" tactics.  As will be shown, the only question is Will being dishonest or just plain ignorant, for for a pundit of his ill-deserved reputation.

First, Will summons the nightmare of the totalitarian state and its network of informers that characterized National Socialist Germany and the various Communist states, as well as the dystopian novel Nineteen Eight-Four. Will asserts that to rid the nation of illegal aliens a network of such informers would be necessary.  That, of course, may appear to the politically illiterate and the generally ill-informed, to be a reasonable assumption.  As a writer who constantly harps on the ignorance of the both the public and those who write on the immigration subject, I must be careful, as I know how ignorant even the politically active are on the underlying facts about immigration law and immigration law enforcement.  Many though, like the Treason Bar, just plain lie, as do the activist groups, and politicians.  However, given Will's reputation, he doesn't get a pass.  This writer will hold him to the facts.  He might be getting old, but so is this writer.  This writer does have an advantage of 24 plus years in the business of immigration law enforcement, but the wealthy and full-time writer Will has a responsibility for fact-checking and research.

So, will a network of informers modeled on Stalinism be necessary to expose and deport 20 million or so illegals?  Well, simply no.  Someone unfamiliar with immigration law enforcement or the amount of detailed knowledge available to the government, in its own databases, concerning illegal aliens.  In fact, the government in its numerous databases spread across different departments, knows either where almost every illegal aliens either works or lives, or frequently both.  Furthermore, tax and Social Security records have a home address, as many file income tax returns, claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit, or have available credit information linked to Social Security Numbers (SSNs) they use to a home address.

Additionally, many illegal aliens receive some sort of Federal or State benefit, either as the primary recipient or for a dependent, either illegally or legally, such as Women's, Infants, and Children (WIC), food stamps, or other welfare program.  Those records held by various agencies, such as the Department of Health and Human Services or a State welfare agency have usually accurate home addresses.  It is just a matter of database mining to get the addresses to DHS arrest teams.

The reason is that almost all illegal aliens who work, are not paid in cash, but are paid through an electronic payroll system that provides the place of work to the government.  This is through the Social Security Administration's (SSA) earnings reporting system as well as that of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reporting system.  Those illegal aliens, and their employers who wink and nod at the Social Security Numbers (SSNs) that their employees provide which are either invalid numbers, misappropriated numbers, or Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TINs).  Most illegals just make up a number, the most common being 000-00-0000, which is duly reported by a conniving employer to the IRS and SSA.  Those numbers, along with the Employer Identification Number (EIN) that identifies employers when reported to the IRS and SSA, identify the employer of illegal aliens.  No network of informers needed, as both parties to the conspiracy to violate Title 8 United States Code Section 1324 and 1324a have readily identifying numbers already assigned to them, their place of work, and their residences.  All the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has to do is collect that information from the IRS and SSA, and assign Special Agents, Deportation Officers, Immigration Enforcement Agents, Customs and Border Protection Officers, and Border Patrol Agents to a site to raid each day.  And as the arrests mount, the illegals will begin to run for the border, as millions did during Operation Wetback.

The next of Will's objection is the number of newly hired immigration officers, as defined in Title 8 United States Code Section 1101(a)(18), needed to effect these arrests.  Both Will and Trump make another error here.  No new hires are needed.  Remember, Operation Wetback was executed with no new hires, and only 750 or so Border Patrol Agents, Special Agents, and Deportation Officers were used. Those employees were supplemented by cooperation from local law enforcement, but, again, there were no new hires among local law enforcement agencies assisting in Operation Wetback, only existing manpower was used.

Currently there are approximately 21,000 Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPOs), 21,000 Border Patrol Agents, 6,500 Homeland Security Investigations (ICE SVU) Special Agents, as well as a similar number of both Deportation Officers and Immigration Enforcement Agents.  So, all together, the number of immigration officers is more than sufficient to raid every employer of illegal aliens or go to their place of residence. No new hires are needed, only the judicious deployment of such current DHS law enforcement employees serving now.  I'm not certain where Will came up with a number of 100,000 officers needed to deport his estimate of 11 million illegals, but clearly if 750 immigration officers could deport 1 million illegals, then the 60,000 or so badge and gun carriers at DHS could deport 20 million is two years easily. The ratio is about 1,000 badges for every 1 million illegals.  But remember, fear is not only the mind-killer, but the creator of panic among illegals.

So, there we have it.  Is George Will willfully ignorant or is he just lying to support amnesty as the solution for illegals.  Pretty obvious he is deliberately deceiving his readers.  Time to send this #cuckservative packing.

The Invasion Continues

Not surprisingly, given the ongoing Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty and the Racist Kritarch Amnesty, entry of illegal aliens from Central America over the border with Mexico is up 52% this August from last August.

U.S. News & World Report September 21, 2015 By Alicia Caldwell, Associated Press
Border Patrol: Family, Children Arrests At Border Jump 52 Percent, White House Concerned
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol arrested nearly 10,000 unaccompanied immigrant children and families caught illegally crossing the border with Mexico in August, a 52 percent jump from August 2014, according to statistics published by the agency Monday afternoon.
Since the start of the fiscal year in October, border agents have arrested more than 35,000 children traveling alone and more than 34,500 people traveling as families, mostly mothers and children. The total number of arrests for the year is down nearly 50 percent compared with a year ago, but border agents have reported a jump in arrests since July.
The Border Patrol reported arresting 6,424 unaccompanied immigrant children and families in August 2014, compared to 9,790 this year.
The August increase comes a year after a surge of more than 68,000 unaccompanied children at the U.S.-Mexico border. Many were trying to escape violence in Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala. For much of the year, the number of illegal border crossings by families and children has been far lower than last year, before increasing in July and August.

And the deliberately witless are, quelle horreur, surprised that there is a surge of illegals when they are rewarded when they arrive.

It's unclear exactly what has led to the overall decrease in border arrests of families and children, but Mexico has stepped up enforcement along its southern border.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the August numbers were a "surprising uptick" and a "concern" for the administration. Earnest did not provide a reason for the increase, but noted that it's at odds with the typical decline in border crossings in August.
Adam Isacson, a border expert and senior analyst at the Washington Office on Latin America, said the 4,632 unaccompanied children caught at the border last month is the highest number his agency has recorded for the month of August since their records began in 2009.
Isacson said historically, crossings start to slow after springtime highs. But July saw an uptick, and now the number of unaccompanied children crossing in August has begun to rival numbers from the beginning and the end of last year's surge.
Isacson said that this could indicate the beginning of another surge, noting that the number of people caught traveling as families also ticked upward last month.
"It could be a flash in the pan," he said, "But we are going up the trend line."

Kind of obvious.  And the Obama Regime is surprised, and concerned, concerned I say...that people might notice.

The administration was caught off guard by the sudden surge of children and families in 2014 and made several efforts to curb the flow of people crossing the border illegally, including media campaigns to discourage people from making the dangerous trip across Mexico. The administration also opened family detention centers that could house thousands of people while they awaited deportation hearings. The detention centers were established in part because about 70 percent of families released at the border and ordered to report back to immigration authorities failed to return to face deportation hearings.

With the Regime not fighting the illegal order from Chinese Kritarch Dolly Gee, again, there should be no surprise that the next months increase as well, upping the trend line as the credulous policy wonks say, because that which is rewarded is repeated.

More "I Can't Breathe" Lies

There's another case of a mentally ill black thug who committed suicide by cop in the news. James Brown, a Sergeant in the United States Army, was serving a seven-day sentence for driving while intoxicated in the El Paso County jail and had a mental breakdown concurrently with a medical emergency.  A bad combination, jail, mental breakdown, and medical emergency. Generally something like this results in nothing good for the inmate. Also of interest is that if Brown had been white, he would have been bounced out of the Army for a DUI, but he wasn't, even with a history of mental illness, called here Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  Of course, no one with a mental illness should be in the military or around firearms. Crazy does not mix with guns.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is a predominately, but not exclusively Hispanic department in a predominately Hispanic county, but the current sheriff is white, with the cadre of deputy sheriff's predominately Hispanic.  The commander of the jail system is Hispanic, Marco Vargas.

Again, for the record, just as in the "I can't breathe" lies from the case of Eric Garner,  if you can talk, you are, in fact, breathing.  The basics of the issue are Brown's mental breakdown, as yet unidentified injury, Brown's refusal to cooperate with medical treatment, the use of force, and the campaign by leftists to protect black criminals.

Brown's PTSD begs the question, why was he still in the military?  He represented an obvious danger to himself and others, combined with an access to firearms and one wonders why a mentally ill soldier was allowed to remain in the Army.  Even more so in that there was a mental illness, but not necessarily PTSD, but more likely some other disorder common to the black criminal class.  And it is obvious that Brown was the beneficiary of disparate treatment, in his favor, in that he was not discharged for the combination of mental illness and a criminal conviction.  The military quickly discharges white heterosexual soldiers with such problems, but coddles minorities and homosexuals, like Bradley Manning, with severe mental illnesses.

While the mentally ill and the military are not a good match, nor are jails or prisons.  But Brown never claimed at his trial that he was innocent based on mental illness and was duly convicted.  He reported for his sentence, but while in solitary confinement because of his self-reported PTSD, he had some sort of breakdown, and was found in his cell bleeding and simultaneously smearing his cell with blood.  This suggests either a mental breakdown. The video clearly shows a deputy attempting to convince Brown to cooperate with medical treatment, but for some reason, Brown does not. Whether than was because of a mental illness or he was playing for the ghetto lottery, we do not know, nor will we.  We will though get the endless stories about his innocence and uprightness, despite a body covered with tattoos, just as with Eric Garner, Tony Robinson, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Tamir Rice.  All those were lies, and expect the same for Brown, but in this case this writer hopes to collapse "The Narrative" before it gets out.

One of the most dangerous jobs in law enforcement is cell extraction.  This is where a combative and uncooperative inmate, as Brown was, has to be removed from his cell.  And in Brown's case, five deputies were required to subdue him.

The video narrative is, as typical with the press, lies, claiming that Brown did not resist.  Just as the cell extraction team, a specially equipped and trained team of deputies used in such cases, moves in, Brown removes his shirt, a common behavior practice of the violent.  And he does not meekly surrender, but fights the officers.  He is subdued and carried out of the cell, and placed in a special chair to control his ability to move.

Such chairs are commonly used and safe for the inmate.  Furthermore, Brown is wildly shouting that he can't breathe and is choking on his blood.  But, again, if you can't breathe, you can't shout that you can't breathe.  The credulousness of the reporters is astounding, clearly no one is so stupid as to believe that a man shouting he can't breathe over a period of time really can't breathe has an agenda other than the truth, which is clearly an attack on white and white Hispanic law enforcement officers for the purpose of ending arrest and imprisonment of black criminals.

Later, the overweight Brown, like Eric Garner, goes into medical distress, but the report admits that Brown died from sickle-cell crisis, unrelated to either his mental breakdown, refusal to cooperate with the deputies seeking to assist him, or related to the force need to subdue him.  It also doesn't explain the smearing of blood on the cell door.  This may have been an unfortunate combination of sickle-cell crisis, mental illness, and an attempt at the ghetto lottery.  Sad, but in the end, Brown, like Garner, Martin, Rice, and Robinson, died because of decisions they made to fight the police or attack a citizen in the street.

"The Narrative" is predictable and the collapse of "The Narrative" is as predictable.
