Congressman John Culberson Leads The Way

In an astounding display of backbone and understanding of the murky details of the budgeting process, Congressman John Culberson is moving to bring about the end of the Sanctuary Cities.  

The ever intrepid Brenda Walker of VDare has recently exposed the hundreds of millions of dollars received by Sanctuary Cities to pay for law enforcement activities and the detention of illegal aliens, the problem that Culberson is looking to solve.

Sanctuary cities are another terrible immigration policy that has brought preventable crime and death to America, yet the practice continues because powerful elites want cheap labor and open borders. As a result, the notion of America being a “nation of laws” has suffered enormously, along with the unnecessary carnage.
After the Steinle murder, San Francisco doubled down on its sanctuary policy to protect illegal alien criminals rather than stand for public safety.
For a recent update about the issue, see the July 29 memo from America’s Senator Jeff Sessions: DOJ Inspector General Finds Sanctuary Jurisdiction Policies Violate Federal Law.
[Lawbreaking Sanctuary Cities Nevertheless Receive Hundreds of Millions of Taxpayer Dollars, by Brenda Walker, July 31, 2016]

But in some long overdue good news, John Culberson has decided to actually fight this aspect of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, unlike #cuck Paul Ryan.

The shocking aspect of the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (DOJ OIG) report detailing the expanding Sanctuary Cities, is that it ends any debate over what Cultural Marxists have long claimed doesn't exist and provided the fodder for the clever move by Congressman John Culberson, all by himself, to end Sanctuary Cities by clever application of annual budget laws and the more esoteric rules regarding the reprogramming of funds.  

Reprogramming is a obscure aspect of the funding of government agencies and department which gives Department heads the authority to move monies from one budget line item to another.  It is quite commonly used, but has to be authorized by Congress, as the Executive branch is prohibited by the Constitution from spending money not authorized by Congress.  In most cases, a particular agency or department may move money around with the permission of the sub-committee chairman that have oversight jurisdiction over that particular agency or department, in this case Culberson as Chairman of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee. However, Culberson has decided not to give routine reprogramming authority to the DOJ, which will basically bring the whole DOJ to a screeching halt.

If the Attorney General will not step up and change the Federal grant process to prevent funding from the DOJ from flowing to these jurisdictions, then as the new chairman of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee, I will be compelled to object to relevant portions of the Department’s spending plan and reprogramming requests...

Thanks to the following language included in the fiscal year 2016 omnibus appropriations bill I can:
Section 740 nullifies the effect of the President’s budget proposal, and requires the DOJ to spend money only as appropriated and directed by Congress.
Section 534 requires every agency under the jurisdiction of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies to submit a spending plan to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees by February 1, 2016.
Section 505 establishes the procedures for reprogramming funding.
Language on pages 4-5 of the House Report explains the reprogramming procedures.
[Ending Funding for Sanctuary Cities, Press Release Office of Congressman John Culberson, February 6, 2016]

Furthermore, Culberson has drawn a line in the sand with Fiscal Year 2017 funding for the DOJ as a whole:

If the Attorney General fails to stop funding from the DOJ from flowing to sanctuary cities, then I will include language in the fiscal year 2017 CJS appropriations bill prohibiting the award of law enforcement grants to jurisdictions that harbor illegal aliens. 
This is a complicated problem with a simple solution. State and local law enforcement agencies should not receive Federal law enforcement grant money unless they are in compliance with Federal law.  

You can listen to Culberson explain the process during an interview with Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy.

This could deal a significant blow to Sanctuary Cities and States, as the action by Culberson and the DOJ OIG are retroactive, meaning that for long as Sanctuary Cities and States have been receiving DOJ monies, they are liable to not only stop their behavior from the date of the DOJ OIG report, but to refund all monies spent while acting illegally as sanctuaries for illegal aliens.  This will blow a huge hole in their already shaky budgets.  Chicago runs at a perpetual deficit and San Francisco will have to return millions of dollars that it has committed to other spending.

Sounds like I know who the next Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security should be.

Immigration Courts In Collapse, Time To Use And Expand Expedited Removal

It is no surprise that the nation's immigration courts, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), are collapsing under the weight of massive numbers of illegal aliens.  It is all due to two major factors, the refusal of the Obama Regime to use Expedited Removal and the Obama Regime encouragement of the border surge of illegal aliens from Central America. 

A backlog in the nation's federal immigration courts has reached 500,051 cases, the highest number ever recorded, according to U.S. immigration officials Friday.
Los Angeles immigration courts have a current backlog of 49,550 pending cases, according to the federal Executive Office for Immigration Review. That number is nearing L.A. courts' fiscal year 2015 backlog of 50,842 waiting cases.
Last year, Los Angeles had the second-largest case backlog in the nation behind New York.
The growing backlog of cases stems from several reasons: few available immigration judges, immigration laws that have grown more complicated over the years, and changing migration patterns, the head of the immigration judges' union said Friday.

[Backlog Of Pending Cases At Immigration Courts Hits Record High, by Leslie Rojas, KPPC, July 22, 2016]

Unfortunately cuck Paul Ryan and other RINOs, rather than including language in appropriations statutes implementing and expanding Expedited Removal, have instead pandered to Obama, and decided adding more immigration judges is the solution to the outright fraud being perpetrated by the Regime and the illegal aliens under the guise of "asylum."  Over 90% of illegal aliens never show up to immigration court anyway, so what is the point of more judges?

Federal officials said they are trying to address the backlog by beefing up staffing, and that Congress has already appropriated funds to hire 90 new judges and supporting staff.

The real solution to the border surge of Central American illegal aliens is Expedited Removal, which is the administrative review of any claim to enter the United States, and the expeditious removal of those aliens who make those fraudulent claims to asylum back across the border to Mexico, where they came from.  Aggressive application of Expedited Removal will not only remove those illegal aliens clogging up immigration court, but also discourage future illegal entries.  Something clearly that Barack Obama and Paul Ryan don't want.

There are limitations to Expedited Removal though, and those need to be addressed by Congress. The advantages are that any illegal alien who enters the United States can be removed within two years of said entry and any criminal illegal alien can be removed at any time.  The Obama Regime is not using Expedited Removal for criminal aliens at all, and only in a highly limited manner for certain aliens encountered at Port-of-Entry and certain aliens encountered at the border area, but not the Central American border surge illegal aliens.  

But, unfortunately, many illegal aliens have been here more than two years, though most of the border surge aliens have not been. Congress, instead of adding more useless judges to the EOIR, need to expand Expedited Removal to include any illegal alien and restrict the EOIR to aliens who have a claim to legal permanent residence.  Those are the only aliens who have any cognizable claim to anything more than an administrative review at the lowest level.  Let the EOIR only deal with non-criminal aliens who are legal permanent residents.

News, Good And Bad, In The Obama Regime War On The Border Patrol

The Obama Regime and its Cultural Marxist allies, as part of its ongoing war on immigration law enforcement, has been particularly targeting the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) and the men who make up the cadre of Border Patrol Agents (BPA) with a campaign, a war,  of harassment and intimidation.  And I quite deliberately mean the men of the USBP, as although there are female BPAs, they don't do much besides pander to special demands illegal alien women.  

Much of the attack on immigration law enforcement is directed at use-of-force incidents, e.g. shootings by mostly BPAs, but including some Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPOs). Note that there are few complaints about ICE SVU agents involved in shooting, but that's because HSI is out of the immigration enforcement business. The resulting investigations always show that allegations against BPAs and CBPOs are baseless and politically motivated, often resulting in not guilty verdicts if charged.

For immigration patriots, there is some good news as, yet again, false allegations against Border Patrol Agents involved in shootings have been exposed and the innocent Agents exonerated.

Border officials for the first time have publicly released the conclusions of internal investigations of agents who opened fire while on duty, ruling that officers had acted properly in four shootings.
The reviews were conducted by an internal panel that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection service set up to address a troubling pattern of agents’ use of deadly force, according to a summary of the reviews published online Thursday.
Fourteen other shootings are still being investigated.
[Border Officials Clear Agents In Four Deadly-Force Cases, Brian Bennett, LAT, June 30, 2016]

It must have been particularly galling for the LAT to admit that the shooting it hyped just a year ago, were justified shootings, as anyone with any knowledge of police shootings would know.  The LAT wanted its own Michael Brown case from the Border Patrol, but, as in the Brown shooting, the LAT was barking up the wrong tree, and trying to sell papers by inciting a race war.  And, undoubtedly those other 14 shooting investigations will have the same result.

In the bad news department, the disgraced R. Gil Kerlikowske has appointed a retired Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) agent to head the Border Patrol.  The LAT is crowing that this is a blow to the Border Patrol and because of the shooting non-problem.

A senior FBI official was named chief of the long-troubled U.S. Border Patrol on Monday in an effort to curb abuses, investigate corruption and improve discipline within the 21,000-member force. 
Mark Morgan, who heads the FBI training division, is the first outsider to lead the Border Patrol in its 92-year history.
He inherits a force under fire for ignoring or downplaying shootings of unarmed people and other abuses by agents, and of doing too little to stem corruption by drug cartels, smugglers and other criminals.
[In An Attempt To Stem Abuses, The Border Patrol Gets A New Chief — From The FBI, by Brian Bennett, June 20, 2016]

This appointment will be a massive failure, as Border Patrol Agents, from the field to senior management will thwart Morgan at every turn.  Morgan has no experience in uniformed law enforcement, and none in immigration law enforcement.  Clearly he was appointed to jamb the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty down the throat of the Border Patrol, to enable and expand the return of the much discredited Catch-and-Release policy, with the ultimate goal being the election of a new people.  There will be massive resistance to Morgan, as he knows nothing about the Border Patrol, its mission, its traditions, and has never made an immigration arrest, or been "rocked" by illegal aliens.  What will be interesting is whether he will wear the Border Patrol uniform, not having ever completed the Border Patrol Academy.  My guess he will be the first Chief to wear a suit instead of the uniform.

In any event, their is no need for Morgan and his reforms, as the recent findings of Kerlikowske's own National Use of Force Review Board has proved that no reforms or reformers are necessary, just as investigations into the shooting of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Tamir Rice proved it was not the cop's fault in those famous shootings of dangerous and violent black men.

In the bad news department, the Obama Regime is desperate to convict an innocent Border Patrol Agent Lonnie Schwartz, who also shot at a Mexican thug throwing rocks at Border Patrol Agents and local Nogales, AZ, police officers in an effort to cover drug and alien smuggling attempts.  The Regime is so desperate, it is demanding that  a statement that Swartz gave under compulsion be used against him during his trial.  The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution is quite clear, no man may be compelled to be a witness against himself, but the Obama Regime, in a combination of its war on cops, subservience to the Mexican government, and a contempt for what it believes is a "White slave-holder's Constitution, wants to destroy the right against self-incrimination, just as it wants to destroy the First and Second Amendments.  In the case of Schwartz, he was compelled to make a statement regarding the shooting and the Obama Regime want to use that statement in violation of his Fifth Amendment rights and current Supreme Court decisions regarding workplace compelled statements, Kalkines v United States.  Just more evidence of the transformation that Obama promised, transformation into a nation where the people have no rights.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Border Patrol agent indicted for the fatal shooting of a Mexican teen through the gaps of a border fence threw up after the shooting and said people were throwing rocks and struck a police dog...
According to the documents, Swartz said people were throwing rocks from the other side of the fence and hit a police dog.
"I shot and there's someone dead in Mexico," he continued, and produced and empty ammunition magazine from his pocket, according to court records...
U.S. District Court Judge Raner C. Collins has scheduled an Aug. 23 hearing on the admissibility of Swartz's initial statements and his responses to further questions from Cruz-Mendez. Prosecutors have argued that they should be admissible but Swartz's lawyers say they should be suppressed.
Swartz's attorneys say the agent was compelled to answer them to avoid disciplinary sanctions, including the possibility of being fired.
[New Details Emerge In Fatal Border Shooting Of Mexican Teen, by Associated Press,, July 26, 2016]

Given the four years plus since the incident and the demand to use protected statements, the Regime is desperate to get a conviction.  If the Obama Regime had the evidence that Schwartz was guilty, they would not need this innocuous statement that was merely factual.  But it does show that there is no length that the Obama regime will not go to in its effort to convict an obviously innocent man, just as it went to desperate lengths to investigate George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson.

Another Perspicacious VDare Reader Has Noticed A Hidden Aspect Of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty

VDare has the honor of the most intelligent readership of any website.  And again such readers have come through.  This time A Keen-Eyed Reader recalled a warning I gave some years ago on a hidden aspect of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, the Advanced Parole Amnesty.

I thought Federale might be interested in seeing this article that appeared in the Fresno Bee....
Reading it jogged my memory about a warning he issued some time ago on the matter. That Dreamers (some who even staged publicity stunts by, in groups, crossing the border and coming back) were gaining reentry based on an administrative tool known as ‘Advanced Parole’ which then sets them on a path to citizenship.
[A Keen-Eyed Reader Spots Obama Putting DREAMers Illegally On The Path To Citizenship, A Keen-Eyed Reader, VDare, July 27, 2016]

And how correct A Keen-Eyed Reader is.  Back in 2014 I warned about this abuse of Advanced Parole:

In an apparent test run of the upcoming Administrative Amnesty for illegal aliens and the eventual awarding of legal permanent residency to those illegals, the Obama Regime has paroled a group of 40 illegal aliens who left the United States on a tour to their "home."
What happened in this instance is that the Regime colluded with a group of illegal aliens who approached the Regime and asked to be paroled into the United States.  The Regime agreed and approved applications the illegal aliens submitted for advanced parole, e.g. were told that when they leave, they will be paroled into the United States when they return after their return to their home country.
[Obama Administration Lets DREAMers Leave And Re-Enter Country, by Federale, VDare, October 23 2014]

The background is that some years ago, Congress prohibited illegal aliens from adjusting status in the United States.  Now that law is often broken by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), that part of the immigration bureaucracy that adjudicates applications for citizenship and legal permanent residence, as USCIS argues that only those illegal aliens who Enter Without Inspection (EWI), e.g. cross the border illegally, are covered by the statute that prohibits adjustment of status by illegal aliens.  USCIS claims that those aliens who are inspected and admitted, but then violate their status or overstay the period of admission aren't illegal aliens.  That, of course, is ridiculous, but that interpretation was supported by both Jorge Bush and Barack Hussein Obama.

However, those who EWI are out of luck.  At least until now.  Advanced Parole, a permit issued by USCIS to an alien to leave and re-enter the United States.  However, Advanced Parole is only supposed to be used for those aliens in the United States who have applied to adjust their status in the United States while legally present, but have to travel outside the United States for some special reason.  Advanced Parole is supposed to be fact and situation specific, but the current policy of the Obama Regime is to give out Advanced Parole to any alien who asks for it, and in fact has started to issue Employment Authorization Document (EAD) cards that include a multiple entry Advanced Parole authorization. Previously Advanced Parole was a separate document from an EAD card and multiple entry Advanced Parole was only available to those aliens in H-1B or L-1 status who applied to adjust status to legal permanent resident, but since they were corporate executives, traveled internationally frequently.  Otherwise, advanced parole was a one-time event only and limited to those who applied to adjust status while legally present.

Illegal Obama Advanced Parole and EAD Card

Legal EAD From INS Days

But in an even more radical change, the Obama Regime now issues Advance Parole to illegal aliens, including those who are beneficiaries of the illegal Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. It the Regime's a way around the statutory prohibition on illegal aliens adjusting status in the United States, which A Keen-Eyed Reader noticed is now occurring.  All part of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.

Illegal Aliens, The Democrat National Convention, And The High IQ VDare Readers

Kudos to the perspicacious VDare reader and letter writer Paul Streitz, a representative example of the high intelligence of patriotic Americans.  Streitz points out the flagrant and criminal assistance the Democrat National Convention (DNC) and the Democrat Party are giving to illegal aliens.  Streitz requests comment on Title 8 United States Code (USC) Section 1324, Bringing In and Harboring Certain Aliens.  At his request and the instance of Editor Peter Brimelow, this writer will discuss Title 8, its importance in immigration enforcement, and future uses against the Democrat Party, the DNC, its employees and agents, Jeh Johnson, and Barack Hussein Obama.

VDare was on the case early, pointing out that illegal aliens are part of the current Democrat plan to hold the Presidency, and they have no compunction about opening advocating illegal activity.

As a result, Democrats are rolling out the red carpet for “our nation’s brave undocumented youth” and adults. One Bolivian illegal is serving on the credentials committee — who says Democrats don’t have a sense of the absurd?
[Trump’s Convention Featured Victims Of Illegals, Hillary’s Will Feature The Illegals Themselves, by Brenda Walker, VDare, July 24, 2016]

From the Reuters report quoted by Walker:

The selections are legal because of a “deferred action program” adopted by President Barack Obama’s administration, which postpones deportations and provides work authorization for some immigrants brought to the United States as children. The Supreme Court blocked efforts to expand those protections last month...
Hareth Andrade, 23, an undocumented immigrant from Bolivia who was approved under a deferred action program, was picked for the credentials committee. The convention will also feature at least two undocumented immigrant speakers, Astrid Silva and Francisca Ortiz.

So, it appears that the Democrat Party is hedging its bets, but as we shall see, to no avail.  These illegals are not really illegals, so the story goes, they are beneficiaries of the so-called Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. However, even according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the DACA program does not convey legal status on the alien beneficiaries, so these illegal aliens remain illegal aliens.  And for the record, that is the correct term, see Title 8 USC Section 1365.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is quite clear, illegal aliens have no legal status.

However, deferred action does not confer lawful status upon an individual, nor does it excuse any previous or subsequent periods of unlawful presence.
[Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Process, USCIS]

So, Reuters is incorrect.  No legal status means the illegal aliens remain illegal aliens.  The DNC is hiding behind the now illegal DACA program.  Illegal because the rationale for DACA, the same as the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), was that the Obama Regime had the authority to change immigration law administratively.  The DNC thought it was covered, but it is not.  It is now clear that the illegal aliens who served in DNC positions, whether paid or not, are illegal aliens, and covered by 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv).

Now 8 USC 1324 is the statute that Congress passed and the President signed that made bringing in, transporting, concealing, or encourages an illegal alien to remain in the United States  a violation of a criminal statute, in this case a felony.  Bringing in, transporting, and concealing are covered by subsections (a)(1)(A) (i-iii), while encouraging is covered by the subsection (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; 

While 8 USC 1324a separately prohibits unlawful employment, don't confuse it with 8 USC 1324(a).

For the purpose of the DNC, the Democrat Party, Jeh Johnson, and Barack Hussein Obama, the relevant offenses will be 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) and 8 USC 1324a.  Subsection (iv) is important because for the most part, unless the DNC paid for their travel, is the most material to the offense, to wit, the DNC and the Party were "encourag[ing] or induc[ing] an alien to...reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such...residence violation of law."  

The DNC and Party are well aware of those aliens are in the United States in violation of the law, that was the whole point of their presence, to use their illegal status for political benefit, as Brenda Walker so correctly pointed out.  So, for the purpose of the law, we have established both knowledge and intent.

Now, who at the DNC and the Party are responsible?  Well, anyone involved in the selection of speakers, including very likely, Hillary Clinton, as all the speakers at the DNC were approved by her. I am certain there is an email chain with her or someone acting on her behalf approving the speakers. The members of the DNC committee are also legally responsible, as well as the chairman or chairwoman of the DNC.  And since the DNC is nothing more than an arm of the Democrat Party, the Party Chairman or Chairwoman, is legally responsible as well.  But the criminal statute does not need an individual to prosecute, an organization, like a corporation, can be criminally prosecuted for violation of 8 USC 1324 or 1324a.  This is, or was, quite a common experience when immigration laws were being enforced some 8 years ago.  But prosecution of a corporate entity, non-profit, or other legal entity does not preclude prosecution of responsible officials of that legal entity, so Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has more than problems with fixing the selection of Hillary Clinton, she and other Party and DNC officials have individual criminal liability.

Furthermore, both Jeh Johnson and Barack Hussein Obama have personal legal liability for these violations as well.  Not because there were illegal aliens at the DNC, but because those and other illegal aliens falsely and fraudulently obtained immigration documents, to wit, an Employment Authorization Document, EAD, Form I-756, at the order and instruction of Johnson and Obama. That means that President Trump can have Janet Napolitano, Johnson, and Obama criminally prosecuted for their official malfeasance in office with regard to assisting illegal aliens to remain in the United States.  Similarly, the Democrat Party, the DNC, and their officials are legally liable for criminal prosecution under 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv).  All it will take is the will to prosecute as the principle of the legal responsibility of corporate officials is settled law, something this writer blogged on back in 2009 at the start of my blogging career, in the case of Yamoto Engine Specialists of Bellingham, WA.

Two Corporate Directors of Yamato Engine Specialists in Bellingham, Washington pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Seattle to aiding and abetting the use of a false statement on immigration forms. The pair, SHAFIQUE AMIRALI DHANANI, 46, and his sister, SHIRIN DHANANI MAKALAI, 52, each pleaded guilty to a federal felony, admitting that they knew workers at their family owned company submitted false names and social security numbers on federal I-9 forms used to verify workers’ status in the United States. Under the terms of the plea agreement, both defendants must be sentenced to a probationary sentence or they can withdraw from the plea agreement. According to the language in the plea agreement, the third defendant, the corporation, YAMATO ENGINE SPECIALISTS 1990, LTD, is expected to pay a significant fine in connection with the case. YAMATO has not yet entered a plea, and is charged by information with encouraging and inducing illegal aliens to reside in the United States. Sentencing of DHANANI and MAKALAI, will be scheduled before U.S. District Judge James L. Robart on a later date.
[Officers Of Bellingham Engine Company Plead Guilty To Felony Immigration Violations, Press Release, Department of Justice, August 18, 2009.]

So, Donald J. Trump has it within his power to put Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama, Jeh Johnson, Janet Napolitano, and dozens of Democrat Party officials away in prison for many years, as each alien who received DACA is a separate offense, as well as effectively abolish the Democrat Party as a criminal organization.  The time to act will come soon, the only question is whether Trump has the will.

Peak Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty

The results are in and the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty has reached its apparent peak with a complete defanging of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE ERO).  The much and justly maligned ICE Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU), also known as Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), was long ago happily neutered, but the Obama Regime fight with the patriotic officers of ICE ERO, led by their union President, Chris Crane, was a long and difficult fight, with much rear-guard action being taken, but not for naught, as the coming Trump triumph will re-invigorate ICE ERO.

But back to the bad news, despite huge budget increases, much spent apparently on take-home cars, which does make one wonder, why do Deportation Officers (DO) and Immigration Enforcement Agents (IEA) need take-home vehicles if they are not out in the field arresting anyone, deportations, detainers, arrests, encounters, and charging documents are all down.

And for the record, both the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and the Daily Caller refer to ICE, not more accurately to ICE ERO as the problem in the collapse in deportations.  ERO is responsible for all deportations from the United States, and is a component of the larger organization, ICE.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been the least productive it has been in years according to an analysis released Tuesday of ICE figures.
“By every measure, ICE is doing less and less enforcement. According to the agency’s key metrics – Encounters, Arrests, Detainers, and Charging Documents Issued – fewer aliens have been put on the path to deportation in 2016,” Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), wrote in a recent report.
One of the figures ICE uses to measure their enforcement activity, encounters with illegal aliens, isn’t even being reported anymore by the agency. Arrests by ICE is down ten percent from last year, and detainers issued to deport aliens in custody by law enforcement agencies by ICE are down 16 percent from 2015.
[ICE Figures Show Agency Is Less Productive Than It Has Been In Years, by Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller, July 19, 2016]

This appears to be the nadir of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty.  It can hardly get worse in the last few months, though one can never underestimate the treachery of Barack Hussein Obama and his obsession to destroy the historic American nation and his open hatred of White Americans.  I expect nothing to radical during the campaign, but in the few months between the election of Donald J. Trump and his inauguration, there might be some issues, but nothing that cannot be reversed by Presidential direction.  And perhaps criminal prosecuted as Hillary will be.  And Trump might be well advised to make that clear after his election, let the bureaucrats know there will be consequences if they follow any illegal orders from Obama.

New CBP Policy On Use-Of-Force Encouraging Illegals To Attack Border Patrol Agents

This writer warned that the Obama Regime's War on the Border Patrol was coming and it came with a vengeance.  And the fruits of this war are developing on the border as a Somali #Muslim learned the lesson that Border Patrol Agents will no long fire on attackers if the attackers are using a motor vehicle in an attempt to kill Federal agents.

A Somali citizen tried to run over Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona after a high speed pursuit, according to federal investigators.
In April, investigators say Ahmed Elni Abdalla drove up to a checkpoint near Amado. When agents approached Abdalla’s car, he drove through the stop sign and tried to get away at a “high rate of speed."
The high-speed pursuit continued up to Green Valley where agents were able to box in Abdalla’s car.
However, Abdalla allegedly refused to get out. When agents tried to break his car window, Abdalla drove right at agents who had to “jump out of the way in order to avoid being hit,” according to federal paperwork.
In December, another Somali citizen was detained by Border Patrol agents. Investigators say Omar Haji Mohamed was paid to help sneak people across the U.S. Border.
[Documents: Somali Citizen Tried To Run Over Border Agents In Southern Arizona, by Katie Connor, ABC 15 Arizona, May 23, 2016]

This is part of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty; discourage and frighten Border Patrol Agents and let it be known among alien smugglers that there are no consequences to attacking Federal agents.  Only a few short years ago this smuggler would have been shot down while he was trying to kill a Border Patrol Agent, but Obama and the execrable R. Gil Kerlikowske, head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, don't like to see dead criminals who try and murder Border Patrol Agents. It was obvious that this policy of not shooting at attackers using motor vehicles was a feature not a bug of the new CBP Use of Force Policy, with the purpose of the new policy designed to discourage enforcement and encourage violence by alien and drug smugglers, all to support the ultimate goal of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, more illegal aliens in the United States to vote Democrat.
