The Center For Immigration Studies (CIS) has an excellent article on what President Trump can do to reverse much of the damage that the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty has done to immigration law enforcement and administrative policy making, aptly titled "A Pen And A Phone." It gets into the details that only few would understand or enjoy given the mind numbing complexity of immigration law and policy, but their work is highly recommended from this professional.

However, I would like to take Pat Buchanan's recommendation regarding Action This Day, the motto of the Special Operations Executive (SOE), and go further, as Churchill demanded of the SOE, to set Europe ablaze, and set the illegal immigration network ablaze; not by burning illegal aliens, but by destroying the public infrastructure that illegally supports, aids, and abets illegal aliens in the United States in violation of Title 8 United States Code (USC), Section 1324, Bring In and Harboring Certain Aliens. This federal law prohibits any person, group of persons, or organization from aiding and abetting any illegal alien to remain in the United States. It covers any activity, including providing employment, concealment, or other incentive to enter or remain in the United States, such as financial aid to attend a college or university.
A perfect target is the State of California. The State government at all levels, starting from the top with Governor Jerry Brown and reaching down to minor functionaries in the Department of Motor Vehicles and the California university systems, is actively engaged in ongoing activity to aid, abet, and assist illegal aliens to remain in California. Importantly, there will be no political down-side, as California is a completely Democrat controlled State, so there is no reason to go easy on the State, the bureaucrats, or even the voters, as this action will cause great distress to the tax-payers there.
Steve Sailer pointed out in an article about a whiny illegal alien student that the State of California, the University of California (UC) system, and the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) actively support numerous illegal aliens. [NYT: Undocumented Student Denounces Free Speech on Immigration Policy, Steve Sailer, VDare, November 7, 2016] UCB even has a special office dedicated to illegal aliens, the Undocumented Student Program, part of the Educational Opportunity Program. The UCB EOP website conveniently identifies the two employees involved in aiding, abetting, and assisting illegal aliens to receive an education at UCB, including providing funds, financial aid, and housing, all prohibited by Title 8 USC 1324.
The two employees that enthusiastically support illegal aliens are Meng So, Undocumented Student Program Director/Academic Counselor, whom you can contact here: firstname.lastname@example.org, 119 Cesar Chavez Student Center, Berkeley, CA 94720, (510) 642-7224, and Liliana Iglesias, Undocumented Student Program Academic Counselor, email@example.com.
Both So and Iglesias are engaged in a conspiracy, not only between themselves, but with others, including Nicholas Dirks, Chancellor UCB, Robert J. Birgeneau, Chancellor Emeritus of UCB, Gibor Basri, former Vice Chancellor for Equity & Inclusion, Na'ilah Suad Nasir, current Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion, and Janet "Reno" Napolitano, President of the University of California, to aid and abet illegal aliens.
Birgeneau was quite the booster for illegal aliens:
“Against great odds, our ‘Dreamers’ have persevered to be here at Berkeley — adding so much to this campus,” said Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau, who has made access to UC Berkeley by talented students from all walks of life a centerpiece of his eight-year tenure. “We are grateful for the courage of these ‘Dreamers’ and also for the courage of those who stepped forward to support them. Our challenge is to continue ensuring that all our students at Berkeley, regardless of background, have access to their dreams, and that we do not waste the potential of a single talented person.”

Now, the essential elements of the crime are easy to establish, as the standard of proof or mens rea, is knowing or mere reckless disregard for the fact. This is a very low threshold for conviction and is at the lowest level of general intent crime, not a specific intent crime.
(iii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation;
(iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or
(v) (I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or
(II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,
Since Napolitano was the former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), proving her knowledge is easy, and much easier is reckless disregard of the fact, especially given that UCB and the UC system openly support illegal aliens, even the name of the program and its office are evidence that can be used against all five of the suspects, Undocumented Student Program. As they say in the business, case closed.
The import of taking action in the case is that it will send shockwaves not only through the UC system, but also the other public post-secondary educational systems in California, the California State University system (CSU) and the California Community College system. Both aid, abet, and assist illegal aliens to use their systems, including financial aid.
President Trump can order an immediate investigation by the the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), notorious for not investigating immigration law violations. This will give a chance for HSI redeem its reputation as ICE SVU.
The case is what is called "open and shut" as the perpetrators openly boast of their criminality, including a possible seventh defendant, Governor Jerry Brown.
On Monday evening, California Governor Jerry Brown said all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California.
According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said America is “the other Mexico,” Brown “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California.” He “nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”
“You’re all welcome in California,” Brown reportedly said.

The State of California aids illegal aliens in other ways as well, the most significant being that it issues driver's licenses to illegal aliens with the full knowledge that those aliens are illegal. Besides Governor Brown, there are other significant suspects in this aspect of the ongoing violation of Title 8 USC 1324 by the State of California, including Brian P. Kelly, Secretary of the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) and Jean Shiomoto, Director of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
In fact, a confession of the liability of Brown, Kelly, and Shiomoto for violating 8 USC 1324 is on the California DMV website:
Assembly Bill (AB) 60 (Chapter 524: Statutes of 2013) requires the department to issue an original driver license to an applicant who is unable to submit satisfactory proof of legal presence in the United States.
That is what is called in the law enforcement business a smoking gun. Even better is that immigration law violations qualify for prosecution under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), which enables the United States to seize all assets related to the crimes, which would essentially bankrupt the State of California. RICO also places liability for the crimes committed by the numerous DMV bureaucrats for each illegally issued driver's license to be placed on their superiors, Brown, Kelly, and Shiomoto, which would result in multiple life sentences for each. That would also apply to the co-conspirators at UCB Undocumented Student Program and their supervisors, So, Iglesias, Dirks, Birgeneau, Basri, and Nasir.

It was said that after the French army mutiny during the Great War, one of ten of each of the mutinous units was shot, pour encourage les autres. An aside, the movie with Kirk Russell, Paths of Glory, documents this incident. A fantastic movie, but only made to denigrate military service during the Cold War.
But, back to our criminal conspiracy, President Trump needs to encourage les autres to both stop aiding illegal immigration and to encourage illegal aliens to self-deport. Action against the above criminals both at the top of the State of California political and bureaucratic systems and at lower levels will frighten others into ending their assistance to illegal aliens and motivate illegal aliens to leave California and the United States. This will also put California in play politically as white voters, still a majority of voters, see someone acting in their interests.
And it will be a fitting book-end to prosecuting Hillary Clinton.
