The Bloodshed Is About To Begin

Rebel, Insurrectionist, and Traitor Michael Magliano Taking His Oath
Too bad he doesn't understand the Constitution that his oath is too.

Civil War II is about to begin.  And it will be State court judges acting to protect illegal aliens from lawful arrest by U.S. Immigration and Customs (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Deportation Officers. It is apparent that State court judges are following the news closely, and saw that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have done nothing about State court judges interfering with arrests and assisting illegal aliens to escape arrest by ICE ERO.  Moreover, Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III has failed to instruct his subordinate U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, Billy Williams, to prosecute Mexican activist Monica Herranz, who was the first State judge to assist an illegal alien to escape, even after local ethics officials in Multnomah County performed a sham investigation and exonerated Herranz.  This inaction has emboldened other State judges to plan violent resistance to arrests of illegal aliens in State courthouses.

The state courts have issued new guidelines governing what immigration agents can do when they show up at city courthouses looking nab immigrants for deportation.
The rules bar immigration agents from making arrests inside courtrooms — though arrests are allowed elsewhere in the courthouse — and require that judges be notified about planned arrests of people involved in their cases.
In a memo quietly issued in April, the Office of Court Administration says that it’s the court system’s policy to “permit law enforcement agencies to act in the pursuit of their official legal duties in New York state courthouses,” as long as they don’t disrupt court business or endanger public safety.
The protocols went out amid an uproar over Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents showing up at city courthouses arrest immigrants who are there to deal with criminal or civil cases.
[Newly Public Guidelines Bar ICE From Arresting Immigrants Inside Courtrooms, by Erin Durkin, New York Daily News, June 30, 2017]

Now, the first rule of Federal law enforcement is we don't need permission from anyone to make an arrest, much less a State court judge.  Federal law gives all Federal law enforcement officers the authority to make arrests without a warrant, and that goes double for DHS officers and agents arresting illegal aliens.  Title 8 of the United States Code Section 1357, Powers of Immigration Officers, authority given to immigration officers by Congress, gives wide powers to immigration officers to make arrests.  Those arrests are not limited by time or place.  That authority to make arrests does not require the permission of any Federal judge, nor may an inferior State court judge limit or interfere with the authority of immigration officers.  Any interference is a crime in itself, codified by Congress in legislation in Title 18 USC 111, Assaulting, Resisting, Or Impeding Officers.

This order from from a court bureaucrat purporting to have the authority to limit the authority of immigration officers is a direct assault on the Constitution and the separation of powers between State and Federal authority.  States have no power over immigration and this order is an attempt by State court judges to exercise authority over both the entry and removal of aliens, authority over which is exclusively with the Federal government, as Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution gives that authority to Congress.  It is also an attempt to interfere with the lawful execution of the authority of officers of the Federal government.  It is both a usurpation, and, since the orders to interfere with Federal agents was given to armed State officers, it is an act of rebellion and sedition, itself a criminal offense in violation of Title 18 USC Section 2383, Rebellion or Insurrection, which reads:

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Now only a foolish court security official would act on this obviously illegal and unconstitutional order from Chief Michael Magliano. First, because it would lead to their arrest, second it could lead to their death.  But that appears to be Magliano's plan.  He wants to gain notoriety and the 15 minutes of fame by "resisting" President Trump.  And he will do that over the dead bodies of his court officers and ICE ERO officers.  Like the terrorists and thugs who rioted after the election of Donald J. Trump and who rioted and burned on Inauguration Day, Magliano wants his own little bit of bloodshed and violence so he can be seen as a leader of The Resistance.

And it will come to blood.  Let me give you a scenario: ICE ERO officers go to a courthouse to arrest a know MS 13 gangbanger with a long criminal record.  This gangbanger is in court for a minor violation, but ICE ERO knows where he will be and that it will be safer to arrest him after he has gone through court security, the searches and metal detectors at most courthouses today.  ICE officers know which courtroom he will be in.  And since the ICE officers know that State judges are actively assisting illegal aliens to flee arrest as shown by Monica Herranz and the open statements by other judges opposed to the immigration laws of the United States, the ICE officers put the habeas grabus on him while he is seated in the courtroom waiting for his case to be called.  An arrogant and rebellious judge then orders the court security officers to stop the arrest.

The ICE officers continue to make the arrest and warn the court officers to back off under penalty of arrest for interfering with a Federal officer.  The bloodthirsty judge then orders the court security officers to rescue the illegal alien in question.  The ICE officers lawfully act to protect themselves and their actions from unlawful interference.  The ICE officers draw their weapons and the court security officers do the same.  The illegal alien then acts to attack or injure the ICE officers, making use of the criminal acts of judge and court officers.  The incident immediately spins out of control, ICE officers legally shoot the gangbanger, then court officers open fire.  We have a shootout in a courtroom between law enforcement officers.  Several die and the ghouls in the media and the State courts celebrate their Resistance to immigration laws.

ICE ERO responds with their armored vehicles and special reaction teams when executing further arrests in courthouses to actually make immigration arrests in the future at courthouses.  Gun battles play out across New York, California, and other States where State court judges want to see violence and death to protect illegal aliens.

The real question though is will AG Sessions allow this to get out of hand.  He can quash this little rebellion like a bug if he wants.  First, make an example of Monica Herranz.  She is the Patient Zero of this disease of rebellion and sedition.  Prosecute her publicly and with great fanfare.  Make Monica Herranz do the perp walk.

Next, have the Special Agent-in-Charge of the New York Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) contact the head of the New York State Court Officers Association, Dennis Quirk, the union for the officers who provide security in New York courtrooms, and inform him that any interference with ICE officers in a courthouse or courtroom will result in immediate arrest and prosecution.

And it appears that this step has been taken, at least partially:

Court officers across New York have been instructed to provide "100 percent cooperation" with Immigration and Customs Enforcement" as part of a directive sent by the head of the State Court Officers' union this week.
The memo, from New York State Court Officers Association head Dennis Quirk, was in response to requests by legal service providers in New York City who have been pushing the state’s Office of Court Administration (OCA) to establish the courthouses as sanctuary spaces. The issue has taken on newfound relevance in recent weeks, after an increase in enforcement by ICE officials, including attending local court proceedings in order to make arrests.
“Effective immediately, inform members to provide 100 percent cooperation to ICE and any other law enforcement agency and disregard any instruction to the contrary," wrote Quirk in the memo. "Also, report any attempts by anyone to obstruct ICE to the union immediately.”
[Court Officers Union Tells Members To Cooperate '100 Percent' With ICE, By Colby Hamilton , Gloria Pazmino And Azi Paybarah, Politico, March 24, 2017]

However, Quirk and the union are resting on the theory that to bar or interfere with ICE officers, court officers need authority from the State legislature.

If the state legislature wants to tackle the issue and specifically bar ICE from entry into state courthouses, Quirk said he and his fellow officers would be happy to follow the new rules.
“If this is really a problem and they wanted to do something about this, they could do it,” he said.

Someone in authority, like the local FBI SAC who has the gravitas to educate Quirk and his union, should inform the likely cooperative officers that that the Constitution and Federal statute trump any attempt by any of their supervisors or the New York State legislature to interfere with Federal agents. None of those officers want to do time for Rebellion or Interfering with a Federal Officer.

I am confidant that Quirk can be persuaded.  But less so the judges and thugs like Magliano who are spoiling for a fight, even for a new Civil War, like many others, such as Jerry Brown and the Treason Bar.  To stop this incipient Civil War II, President Trump and AG Sessions must act decisively against these State level Kritarchs; they must obtain indictments and make arrests quickly, before the blood flows and the war begins.  Whether you call it the Rubicon or Fort Sumter, things are coming to a head quickly.  Action This Day!

Confirmed: War On Border Patrol And ICE Is Real And Becoming More Bloody

Two new reports are out.  As this writer warned repeatedly, the Democrat Party and their surrogates; illegal aliens, Cultural Marxists, and other leftists, have stepped up their terrorist war on the officers of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) who enforce immigration laws, just as Black Lives Matter resulted in the murders of police officers throughout the United States.  The two main enforcement components suffering from the renewed terrorism and violence are the U.S. Border Patrol and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

Even though illegal immigration is down, violence along the border is up, with assaults on U.S. Border Patrol agents nearly doubling so far in 2017, the agency’s head told Congress on Wednesday.
Agents have reported more than 550 assaults through June 1, up from 300 assaults at the same time last year, said Carla Provost, the acting chief of the Border Patrol.
She recounted the statistics as a warning during testimony on gang activity among the illegal immigrant population. She didn’t speculate on what might be spurring the rise in assaults, but it comes as the immigration debate in the U.S. — and Mexico — heats up under President Trump.
Border Patrol agents face one of the most dangerous jobs in law enforcement, officials say.
“Rocking” incidents, in which those on the Mexican side of the border toss large boulders over the fence to try to injure agents, are common.
[Assaults On Border Patrol Agents Surge As Immigration Debate Heats Up, by Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, June 21, 2017]

And it just isn't on the border.  Democrat Party terrorists are organizing to attack ICE ERO Deportation Officers when they make arrests inside the United States:

In response to recent reports of an increase in assaults against law enforcement officials across the country, U.S. Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) recently called for an investigation into ways to increase safety for agents within Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)...
“According to ICE officials, ICE has already recorded 19 incidents of assault on ICE law enforcement personnel for this year through May 22, 2017, compared to only 24 assaults recorded during all of 2016,” the senators wrote.
[Sens. McCaskill, Johnson Inquire About Increased ICE Personnel Injuries In The Field, Homeland Preparedness News, June 20, 2017]

This writer warned of the coming war waged by The Resistance to immigration law enforcement.  It is becoming very real with the increased attacks on ICE ERO Deportation Officers and Border Patrol Agents.

The solution to this problem is prosecutions of the attackers, which is not occurring when ICE ERO officers are attacked for some reason.  Clearly the Deep State Democrats in the Department of Justice don't care about the lives of Federal agents.

The illegal aliens and Cultural Marxists feel empowered to organize and commit these attacks.  One of the responses of Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be to start prosecuting those who aid and abet illegal aliens to show the cost of their behavior.  Activists are emboldened because their is no cost to their crimes.  If AG Sessions makes an example of a few, such as Peter Pedemonti, the message might just get out that organizing illegal aliens and Antifa to attack ICE officers is a certain path to prison, pour encourage les autres.

Mexican Kritarch Sham Investigation

Mexican kritarch Monica Herranz has been cleared by a sham investigation of her aiding an illegal alien to escape arrest by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Deportation Officers.  I first exposed Herranz back in March and pointed out that Obama appointed United States Attorney Billy Williams, who for some strange reason has not been replaced by President Trump,  passed the buck to Multnomah County to conduct an "ethics" investigation rather than have his own office conduct a criminal investigation of Herranz.  [Mexican Judge Helps Mexican Illegal Alien Escape, by Federale, VDare, March 5, 2017]  Then again recently when I wrote about a deliberate campaign by State court judges to interfere with arrests of illegal aliens, in violation of Title 18 United States Code Section 111, Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers.  [Now More Than Ever, No “Sanctuary Courts”! Prosecute Mexican Kritarch Monica Herranz!, by Federale, VDare, June 12, 2017]

Interestingly  Multnomah County Trial Court Administrator Barbara Marcille, a fellow Democrat, and undoubted gurrl power advocate, actually apparently proved the case, but instead stated there was no proof of a "violation."  Sham hardly describes the incompetence of the investigation.

Multnomah County Circuit Court administrators have determined that Pro Tem Judge Monica Herranz didn’t violate any rules of judicial conduct when she allowed an undocumented criminal defendant to leave her courtroom through a back door as immigration agents waited in the hallway.
Trial Court Administrator Barbara Marcille investigated Herranz's actions from Jan. 27 and found that Herranz didn’t knowingly help impaired-driving defendant Diddier Pacheco-Salazar elude capture.
[Judge Didn't Violate Rules In Letting Immigrant Leave Through Back Door, Review Finds, by Aimee Green, The Oregonian, June 19, 2017]

It is clear that the conclusion to the "investigation" by Marcille was predetermined and would find Herranz did no wrong despite the evidence.  Consider this:

Marcille told The Oregonian/OregonLive that Herranz didn’t know if the defendant was indeed in the country illegally – rather, all she’d been told by Pacheco-Salazar’s defense attorney was that the defendant didn’t have his immigration documentation with him and agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement were in the hall asking various defendants of Hispanic ethnicity for their documentation.

Clearly both the defense attorney and Herranz knew that Pacheco-Salazar was about the be arrested. That is the most important fact of the case.

Then Herranz lies about her knowledge of the immigration status of the illegal alien. We are required to believe that a lawyer, active in a Hispanic legal organization, the Oregon Hispanic Bar Association, had no idea that Pacheco-Salazar was an illegal alien.  And we led to believe that Pacheco-Salazar's attorney told Herranz that Pacheco-Salazar did not have his immigration documents.  Now, it is a crime for a legal alien to not have their immigration document in their possession, albeit a minor crime, a misdemeanor,  Deportation Officers don't scour courthouses for legal aliens who left their documents at home.  Deportation Officers do go to courthouses to arrest illegal aliens or deportable legal aliens.  In fact, Pacheco-Salazar's attorney would have lied to the judge according to this investigation, since Pacheco-Salazar did not actually have immigration documents as he was illegally in the United States.

So, Herranz is basing her defense on a lie from a defense attorney.  Obviously that is a serious ethical violation, but nothing has happened to that defense attorney, which suggests that either he did not actually say that to Herranz.  Perhaps this attorney just lied to the investigating official.  Perhaps he lied to Herranz.

But Herranz is a judge and active in "Hispanic" legal issues.  Herranz would know that ICE officers don't go around arresting legal aliens for not having their documents and that the claim by Pacheco-Salazar's defense attorney was obviously a lie, a lie she either chose to believe as an excuse to assist Pacheco-Salazar, or a criminal conspiracy between Herranz and the defense attorney to thwart the investigation into Herranz' misconduct and felonious culpability.  The defense attorney was undoubtedly salivating at the endless favors and benefits he would get for his clients after lying to assist the judge. His next clients before Judge Herranz would get great treatment with this favor he provided to Herranz.   The defense attorney would be cashing this chit for years to come.

What really happened was that Herranz was of the mind to protect her fellow Hispanic from arrest for an offense she most likely objects to in the first place, most likely out of sympathy for her co-ethnics and ideological objection to immigration law enforcement.

Moreover, this is in fact an admission that  by Herranz that she acted to protect Pacheco-Salazar from arrest, though allegedly for the minor crime of not having his green card on him, not for him being an illegal alien.  But we know the truth, the sophisticated and very active in the Hispanic community judge knew that Pacheco-Salazar was an illegal alien and wanted to help him escape.

Moreover, Herranz let Pacheco-Salazar escape through a private door.

Herranz asked if the prosecutor had any objection, and upon hearing none, agreed to let Pacheco-Salazar leave through the back door of her courtroom, which is accessible to other members of the public, Marcille found.

Now that does not make any sense.  Why would Herranz ask the prosecutor for his agreement for a criminal defendant to use an allegedly "public" door?  That telling says that the door was not in fact accessible to the public.  That request also clearly shows intent to assist Pacheco-Salazar to escape arrest, as if the door was for the public as Marcille claims, no permission from the judge would be needed, nor would Herranz need to ask the prosecutor if he had any objection.

Clearly this investigation was as fake as the news about collusion between President Trump and President Putin.

The real question now is whether Obama appointed U.S. Attorney Billy Williams will do anything about it?  You can politely but forcefully ask him here if there is a double standard for crimes committed by Democrat Judges and other Americans.

1000 SW Third Ave Suite 600
Portland, Oregon 97204

All the more reason for Jeff Sessions to either fire Williams or order him to convene a Grand Jury, and place Pacheco-Salazar, his attorney, the prosecutor, and any others before that Grand Jury to testify.  Instead of testimony to a minor bureaucrat with no authority, this will be under possible severe penalties for perjury.   This criminal activity calls for a real investigation, not a sham investigation designed to protect the guilty.

Terrorist Dry Runs And Other Plans For Violence Against Immigration Enforcement

In the news, Middle Eastern immigrants and their Marxist co-conspirators had another practice run at attacking U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Deportation Officers and Federal Protective Service (FPS) police officers who were transporting criminal illegal aliens for eventual deportation.  The violence was minimal, but it is just a start to a long term strategy that includes assassinations like the recent attack on Steve Scalise, terrorism, and attacks on immigration enforcement officers.

DETROIT -- Portions of shackled men's faces could be seen through security bars on the windows of a white bus outside the U.S. Detention and Deportation Center in Detroit on Sunday evening.
They shouted in English and foreign languages back and forth to loved ones and friends lining the black metal fence yards away...
Some in the crowd of nearly 100 that had amassed out of protest and concern wept along the fence. Others reacted with anger.
[Immigrants Detained, Bused To Detention Centers In Detroit-Area Sweep, by Gus Burns, Michigan Live, June 11, 2017]

What the reporter didn't tell you was the violent attacks on ICE and FPS officers while the illegal alien criminals were being removed by bus:

Middle Easterners and Antifa Practice For More Violence Against ICE and Border Patrol

Similarly, more Democrat Party terrorists are planning on attacking ICE officers when they arrest illegal aliens:

Immigrant rights groups launched the Colorado Rapid Response Network Thursday, a 24-hour hotline to track, verify, document and respond to Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids and what activists describe as aggressive enforcement tactics.
[Immigrant Rights Activists Launch 24-Hour Hotline To Help Colorado Communities During Raids, by Danika Worthington, Denver Post, June 15, 2017]

While they might claim to be peaceful or to just observe ICE arrests, there is no need for any "rapid response" to an arrest or raid.  The only reason for a "rapid response" is to interfere with the arrests, in violation of Federal law, 18 United States Code, Section 111, Assaulting, Resisting, Or Impeding A Federal Officer.

The Colorado Rapid Response Network is just a front for upcoming violence that even the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court Tani Cantil-Sakauye is threatening in her effort to block immigration arrests in courthouses.

It will come to blood.  It is coming soon. Prepare.

Elon Musk Attacks Trump,Trump Should Respond

So, the welfare queen Elon Musk has quit two advisory councils serving President Trump.  This is quite rich for Musk, whose sales of Tesla cars tank once subsidies are withdrawn.

Elon Musk is breaking his ties with the White House now that President Donald Trump has said he will pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said on Wednesday that he would have "no choice" but to leave the two advisory councils he sits on if the US withdrew from the landmark climate deal — a commitment he reiterated on Thursday after Trump made the announcement.
"Am departing presidential councils," Musk tweeted. "Climate change is real.

Tesla is the most heavily subsidized automobile on the market, in fact it has no market without tax subsidies.

According to the latest data from the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), sales of Electrically Chargeable Vehicles (which include plug-in hybrids) in Q1 of 2017 were brisk across much of Europe: they rose by 80% Y/Y in eco-friendly Sweden, 78% in Germany, just over 40% in Belgium and grew by roughly 30% across the European Union… but not in Denmark: here sales cratered by over 60% for one simple reason: the government phased out taxpayer subsidies.
As Bloomberg writes, and as Elon Musk knows all too well, the results confirm that “clean-energy vehicles aren’t attractive enough to compete without some form of taxpayer-backed subsidy.”
[It’s Confirmed: Without Government Subsidies, Tesla Sales Implode, by Tyler Durden, Technocracy News, June 12, 2017]


From hero to zero, in just one month.

Mr. JD Clayton, Property President of Studio City, and Miss Isabel Fan, Regional Director of Tesla Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, hosted the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Hong Kong has long been a hotbed for electric car sale, driven mostly by incentives, but what happens when those incentives vanish – almost doubling the cost of a new EV in some cases overnight? EV sales disappear….completely.
In March 2017, electric car sales in Hong Kong stood at 2,964 units. Come April, sales dropped to zero units. This was exactly as we had predicted when news first surfaced of the incentives being slashed.

Worse yet, Tesla is an H-1B dependant company, driving down American wages by importing foreign nationals to perform high skilled work.

And Tesla has yet to held accountable by the Department of Justice for illegally importing Eastern European low wage laborers to build their Fremont, CA, Tesla plant.

The piece details how companies use the various visa-laundering companies that admit sketchy workers and allow business to evade US laws regarding immigration, wages and work conditions. The local company Tesla was the case under scrutiny. 
The face of the story is Gregor Lesnik, a Slovenian electrician hired to work at Tesla’s Fremont plant. He worked 10-hour days, six days a week installing pipes in a Tesla paint shop until he fell through the roof. He sustained serious injuries, for which none of the companies which aided his hiring wanted to be financially responsible: being a subcontractor is a common and convenient excuse. Lesnik is currently engaged in a lawsuit that has shined a light on the corrupt cheap labor system.
[Industry Still Imports Cheap Foreign Labor in Violation of US Law, by Brenda Walker, VDare, May 17, 2016]

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has told Americans that those who violate immigration laws will be prosecuted, but the United States Attorney for the Northern District of California, Brian Stretch, a Deep State Obama operative, has not yet announced prosecution of Tesla and Tesla's co-conspirators, Eisenmann USA and ISM Vuzem, Inc.

Give Brian Stretch a call here and ask him why:

450 Golden Gate Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94102

Phone: (415) 436-7200

Time for President Trump to act against Tesla by ending its tax breaks and shutting off the supply of H-1B and illegal alien labor.

Border Patrol Jousting With Alien Smugglers, But Not Arresting The Coyotes

How times have changed for the worse, and how little President Donald J. Trump has done about the rachet effect of Cultural Marxist influence on immigration law enforcement.  As little as less than 20 years ago this writer completed the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Criminal Investigator Training Program (CITP) and further back I completed the Immigration Officer Basic Training Course (IOBTC) and the Journeyman Immigration Inspector Training Course. In those training courses the newly minted immigration officers, then criminal investigators, learned about a legal concept called curtilage. Curtilage is the legal concept dealing with the issue of 4th Amendment rights.  In fact, during the CITP and the IOBTC those trainees from local law enforcement agencies who transferred to Federal service were quite shocked about the curtilage principle.  Why, because in many states, statute restricts the authority of law enforcement officers to enter into any private property.  However, since the medieval period, common law has recognized that private property unassociated with a dwelling and the intimate area around that dwelling has no right to privacy or protection from entry by the King's men.  Basically, if a dwelling or open fields are not associated with the intimate activity of a household, then there is no right to protection by the need for a warrant for a Federal government official to enter.  Think open fields, forests, or other land privately owned, without a home where people reside.  This would include outbuildings, barns, shacks, or other structures not actual places of abode by a legally present person, e.g. not a squatter or trespasser.  This means a government agent can enter into open property even if fenced or posted.

However, it appears that the United States Border Patrol (USBP) Academy or the management at the USBP have not informed their trainees and agents about the legal concept of curtilage.

A group known in Arizona for assisting illegal aliens through the desert after they cross the border forced U.S. Border Patrol agents to obtain a warrant to search for migrants in their camp. The agents later arrested four Mexican nationals.
Border Patrol agents assigned to the Tucson Sector used technology surveillance to detect four suspected illegal aliens who crossed the border along a known human smuggling route. The four individuals were wearing camouflage as they walked northward from the Mexican border, according to information provided to Breitbart Texas by U.S. Border Patrol officials...
Agents subsequently sought and obtained a warrant to search the camp and question the four suspected illegal aliens. Agents found the migrants and questioned them about their citizenship and legal right to be present in the U.S. Satisfied that the four people were illegally present in the country, agents took them into custody.
[Illegal Alien Support Group Forces Border Patrol to Get Warrants, by Bob Price, Breitbart, June 16, 2017]

Twenty years ago the Border Patrol would not have obtained a warrant, first because no warrant is needed to detain, question, and arrest an illegal alien according to Title 8 United States Code (USC), Section 1357 (and Chapter 8 Code of Federal Regulations Section 287.5):

(a) Powers without warrant: Any officer or employee of the Service authorized under regulations prescribed by the Attorney General shall have power without warrant—
(1) to interrogate any alien or person believed to be an alien as to his right to be or to remain in the United States;
(2) to arrest any alien who in his presence or view is entering or attempting to enter the United States in violation of any law or regulation made in pursuance of law regulating the admission, exclusion, expulsion, or removal of aliens, or to arrest any alien in the United States, if he has reason to believe that the alien so arrested is in the United States in violation of any such law or regulation and is likely to escape before a warrant can be obtained for his arrest, but the alien arrested shall be taken without unnecessary delay for examination before an officer of the Service having authority to examine aliens as to their right to enter or remain in the United States;

Border Patrol Agents "Negotiating" With Criminals Aiding Illegal Aliens

And second, no arrest warrant was needed, whether this "camp" was on public or private property:

“The Border Patrol acknowledged that they tracked a group for 18 miles, but only after the migrants sought medical treatment did the Border Patrol seek to arrest them,” No More Deaths Founder John Fife claimed.

Well, clearly the camp is within 25 miles of the border.  And Title 8 USC 1357 gives immigration officers the authority to enter private property within 25 miles of the border:

(3) ... and within a distance of twenty-five miles from any such external boundary to have access to private lands, but not dwellings, for the purpose of patrolling the border to prevent the illegal entry of aliens into the United States;

So, no search warrant was necessary to enter into any alleged private property of the illegal alien smuggling organization called No More Deaths. And obviously no arrest warrant was necessary either.

Additionally, back to the common law principle of curtilage.  According to the common law, the King's men, in this case Federal agents, may enter as they please into private property that is not curtilage.

But the real question is why the Border Patrol managers did not instruct the agents who raided the alien smuggling organization No More Deaths, coyotes in the local parlance, to arrest those who aided the illegal aliens in violation of Title 8 USC Section 1324, Bringing In and Harboring Certain Aliens, for which Border Patrol Agents are authorized to make under 8 USC 1357?

(4) to make arrests for felonies which have been committed and which are cognizable under any law of the United States regulating the admission, exclusion, expulsion, or removal of aliens, if he has reason to believe that the person so arrested is guilty of such felony and if there is likelihood of the person escaping before a warrant can be obtained for his arrest, but the person arrested shall be taken without unnecessary delay before the nearest available officer empowered to commit persons charged with offenses against the laws of the United States;

You can contract the Chief Patrol Agent, Paul Beeson, of the Tucson Sector here and ask him why he is mollycoddling alien smugglers:

Address: 2430 S Swan Rd, Tucson, AZ 85707
Phone: (520) 748-3000

Let him know that 20 years ago the USBP would not have tolerated any "sanctuary" for illegal aliens nor such groups aiding and abetting a Federal crime operating openly and flagrantly.  Let him know that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has publically stated that illegal immigration will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted.  Hold him to that.

Unsurprisingly the criminals at No More Deaths were unapologetic and not very bright:

For the past 13 years, No More Deaths has provided food, water, and medical care for people crossing the Sonoran Desert on foot.  The ongoing humanitarian crisis caused by border-enforcement policy has claimed the lives of over seven thousand people since 1998.  Human remains are found on average once every three days in the desert of southern Arizona...
In spite of this, No More Deaths remains committed to our mission to end death and suffering in the desert and will continue to provide humanitarian aid, as we have for the past 13 years.
[Border Patrol Raids Humanitarian-Aid Camp In Targeted Attack, by Alicia Dunsmore, No More Deaths, June 16, 2017]

This is actually an admission that No More Deaths was and is actively engaged in criminal behavior in violation of Title 8 USC 1324, which should be used in their trial for such offenses.

Time for AG Sessions to put up or shut up.

Trump Rolled And Insulted By Buffoon Malcolm Turnbull On Behalf Of Muslim Terrorists

Word is out that President Trump has been rolled by Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia, who is seeking to pawn off failed asylum seekers from Muslim terrorist countries.  And to further mess, Turnbull has openly insulted President Trump.

President Trump is preparing to accept hundreds of refugees from Iran and other terrorist-connected countries, taking them from camps being maintained by Australia under a deal his predecessor struck, without putting them through the long vetting that usually takes place, according to a report being released Monday.
Some of the refugees have tried to cleanse their social media presence to try to delete red flags that could cost them their chance to come to the U.S., the Center for Immigration Studies report concludes.
A staggering 88 percent of the refugees have some level of mental illness or disorder, according to a U.N. health inspection last year. And the center’s report documents incidents of rape and sexual assault perpetrated by the refugees on locals.
Australia has been looking for a landing place for the refugees for years, and President Obama agreed to take them. Mr. Trump criticized the “dumb” deal in February, and shared a testy phone call with Australia’s prime minister, but has since relented and is moving quickly to welcome the refugees.
[Trump Moves To Accept Hundreds Of Refugees From Iran Under Obama Deal, by Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, June 12, 2017]

And to rub in his rolling of President Trump, Turnbull has allowed to be released a video of him insulting Trump at an event that is usually off the record.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull isn't known for being a comedian but he tried some daring Donald Trump material on a room full of journalists in Canberra last night.
He gave a tongue-in-cheek speech, which Nine's Political Editor Laurie Oakes has decided to reveal, at Parliament House's annual Mid Winter Ball.
Usually the prime minister's address is off the record, but Oakes - who did not attend the dinner and does not believe reporting should be banned at events hosted by journalists - is making it public.
In leaked audio, Mr Turnbull is heard making fun of his meeting with the president in New York last month.
[Leaked Audio Reveals Malcolm Turnbull Roasting Donald Trump Over 'Fake Polls' And Russia, 9News, June 15, 2017]

President Trump should take this opportunity to withdraw all State Department and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services personnel in Australia and Nauru and Manus Island who are processing these fraudulent refugees, fraudulent because Australia says they are fraudulent.  President Trump can be diplomatic and just not address the issue as when the bureaucrats are withdrawn, there is nothing more needed to be done or said.  But the message to the buffoon Turnbull will be clear, if you are so concerned about these Muslim terrorists, then let them in your country.

More Intimidation Of Trump By Drug Dealing Mexican Gangbanger

Despite the claims that President Trump is acting to deport criminal aliens, either Deep State bureaucrats, or on orders from John Kelly, a drug dealing and drug using Mexican gangbanger has skated from deportation.

SALINAS – A young Salinas man who earned temporary legalization under a program promoted during the Obama administration is awaiting deportation in a Northern California detention center.
Juan Manuel Martinez, 19, had pleaded no contest to trespassing in March, and his attorney, Miguel Hernandez, said Martinez was expected to go home from the Monterey County Jail after a judge sentenced him to time served. Instead, his family was told U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had placed a hold on him.
[‘Dreamer’ Picked Up By ICE In Monterey County Jail, by Claudia Menendez, Mercury News, April 28, 2017]

And this plea is after he obtained his Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA). And he pled down from much more serious crimes.

Although Martinez was originally charged with possession of marijuana and meth, he ended up just pleading to a minor charge of trespassing, which should not have warranted immigration detention, his attorneys said.
John Mineau, chief deputy for corrections with Monterey County Sheriff’s Office, said Martinez was flagged by ICE as soon as he was arrested for having a gang affiliation and possessing drugs on jail grounds. Martinez had driven a friend to jail, where he was caught with marijuana and meth in his car.
“We don’t have a 5-mile perimeter so we patrol around to prevent people from introducing” drugs into the jail, he said. “We take that stuff very seriously.”

So, this gangbanger brought drugs to a jail. Not very bright. And despite his claims after he was placed in deportation proceedings to the contrary, he is a gangbanger, he admitted to it when arrested.

Monterey County Sheriff's Office Sheriff Steve Bernal had said there was a form that is filled out for inmates asking if they or a family member are affiliated with a gang. The form for 19-year-old Juan Manuel Martinez indicated he or a family member was affiliated with a gang, when in fact he personally was not...
“(He) got mixed up at the wrong place, at the wrong time and had a conviction of a simple trespass. Exiting the jail ICE decided they were going to detain him and he has been detained ever since,” said Zarazua.
[Salinas Teen Dreamer To Be Released This Afternoon, by Paul Dudley, KION, May 1, 2017] 

Wrong place and wrong time is the usual excuse for criminals and gang members.  And there is no explanation as to what the "mistake" was that identified him as a gang member, but since he filled out the form himself or answered the question in the affirmative to a deputy, the chance of a mistake is about nil.  And not the "he personally was not" which implies a family member was or the person with whom he was arrested was a relative who was a gang member.  Now that should be enough for the government to deport him.  Why is he associating with gang members at a minimum, but, again, he admitted to deputies when he was arrested that he was a gang member.  This is very important during intake of arrestees, as persons from certain gangs must be separated in custody from those in other gangs.  This was not a mistake, except the mistake in admitting one was a gang member because of the immigration consequences.

Note also that drug users and drug dealers are not allowed to immigrate to the United States.

(B) Controlled substances
(i) Conviction.-Any alien who at any time after admission has been convicted of a violation of (or a conspiracy or attempt to violate) any law or regulation of a State, the United States, or a foreign country relating to a controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802)), other than a single offense involving possession for one's own use of 30 grams or less of marijuana, is deportable.

(ii) Drug abusers and addicts.-Any alien who is, or at any time after admission has been, a drug abuser or addict is deportable
[Immigration and Nationality Act: Section 237 - General Classes Of Deportable Aliens, USCIS]

The real question is why was this criminal alien, drug user, and gang member allowed to have the charges dropped by someone in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)?

His attorneys were able to free him during a bond hearing on May 4. Five days later, an attorney with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security filed a motion to dismiss Martinez’s deportation proceedings. The motion was granted on May 30.
“When the government submitted the motion (to dismiss)… at that time we were starting to celebrate,” said Blanca Zarazua, Martinez’s attorney. “We had not popped the piñata, but we certainly purchased one. It was a very good sign.”
For them, the court’s ruling is validation of their claims.
“The government attorney would not have initiated the motion had it not been such a compelling case for dismissal,” Zarazua said. “We have been saying all along that this never should have happened.”
[‘Dreamer’ Picked Up By ICE In Monterey Jail Won’t Be Deported, by Claudia Meléndez Salinas, Monterey Herald, June 14, 2017]

Now someone ordered the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) attorney, an attorney employed by the ICE Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA) in the San Francisco Office. The Chief Counsel, Lisa Marie Calero,  can be contacted here:

San Francisco Office of Chief Counsel
100 Montgomery Street Suite 200

Phone: (415) 705-4604

You can contact David Jennings, Field Office Director, ICE Enforcement And Removal Operations (ERO), and ask him why he agreed to have the gangbanger Juan Manuel Martinez released.

San Francisco Field Office
630 Sansome Street Rm 590
San Francisco, CA, 94111
Phone: (415) 844-5512

You can contact John Kramar, District Director, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), here, and ask him why someone who possesses and obviously uses drugs, and brings those drugs onto jail property, why that person can retain their DACA status.

630 Sansome Street
San Francisco, CA 94111
(800) 375-5283

But the real problem is that President Trump and Secretary John Kelly are not only continuing the DACA program, but allowing criminal aliens to use the program.  Time for both to protect Americans from criminal aliens.

Kritarch Wages War On The Constitution On Behalf Of Obese Mexican Illegal Alien

Like a bad penny, Jessica Colotl has turned up again.  Colotl is a Mexican illegal alien who has been in the news since 2010 and I have been writing about her since then, and calling for her deportation. Unfortunately, our problem with the zaftig illegal alien was not solved by President Trump in his first days in office.  He failed to abolish the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and now he and the Constitution are paying the price. 

Previously, Colotl had her DACA status revoked because of her admission in court to committing a felony offense.  Colotl was given diversion for the felony offense of lying to a police officer, but she still had a misdemeanor offense on her record for driving without a license.  The diversion and her admission to the crime which enabled her to qualify for diversion is sufficient to exclude an alien from the United States, and since Colotl was not lawfully present INA 212(a)(2)(A)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) applies:

INA: Chapter 212 - General Classes Of Aliens Ineligible To Receive Visas And Ineligible For Admission; Waivers Of Inadmissibility:
(2) Criminal and related grounds.-
(A) Conviction of certain crimes.-
(i) In general.-Except as provided in clause (ii), any alien convicted of, or
 who admits having committed, or who admits committing acts which constitute the
 essential elements of-
(I) a crime involving moral turpitude (other than a purely political offense)
 or an attempt or conspiracy to commit such a crime
[Service Law Books, USCIS]

Before this writer could address the Colotl loss of her DACA status, she filed a lawsuit to overturn the revocation of her DACA status and impending deportation, and a Federal kritarch, Mark Cohen intervened in her case, ordering the reinstatement of her DACA status, despite the fact that DACA is merely the exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

Kritarch Mark H. Cohen 

Obese Illegal Alien Jessica Colotl

Protection from deportation was temporarily restored Monday to a Mexican woman who became a well-known figure in the illegal immigration debate as a college student seven years ago.
U.S. District Judge Mark Cohen ordered the federal government to temporarily reinstate Jessica Colotl's protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, while it reconsiders her eligibility. Immigration authorities last month had terminated her protected status.
[Mexican Woman's Deportation Protection Temporarily Restored, by Kate Brumback, AP/, June 12, 2017]

Initially, the government made the correct argument in court that Colotl's admission of guilt was sufficient to remove her from the illegal and unconstitutional DACA program.  Illegal because DACA was not authorized by Congress and unconstitutional because the President cannot usurp the legislative authority of Congress over immigration.

A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said last month that Colotl's DACA status was revoked because she admitted guilt in 2011 to a felony charge of making a false statement to a law enforcement officer during the 2010 traffic stop and entered a pretrial diversion program. Colotl's attorneys, though, said that she complied with the program's terms and has no felony conviction.

However, for some strange reason, the government lawyers, Deep State operatives no doubt, conceded that the above part of the INA does not apply to Colotl.

The government lawyer also confirmed that Colotl's pretrial diversion agreement isn't considered a felony conviction for immigration purposes, but speculated that the decision may have been based on a misdemeanor conviction for driving without a license, Cohen wrote.

The Deep State operative who argued in front of Cohen was wrong to concede the claim that an admission to a crime is not sufficient, and even more wrong in conceding that there was no reason to remove her from DACA. 

Cohen wrote in his order that a government lawyer was unable during a Thursday hearing to articulate the actual reason for the revocation of her DACA status and denial of her renewal application. 

This is an important point, because DACA, as argued by Obama and placed in writing by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel (DOJ OLC), is an exercise of prosecutorial discretion, e.g. it is the unreviewable authority of the executive to take action or not take action.  That is what the Deep State saboteur should have argued before Cohen, but the plan was to sabotage the case by failing to uphold the law and the separation of powers doctrine.  Conceding to the reviewability by the judiciary of prosecutorial discretion was more than a blunder, it was sabotage.

The principles of enforcement discretion discussed in Chaney apply with particular force in the context of immigration. Congress enacted the INA against a background understanding that immigration is “a field where flexibility and the adaptation of the congressional policy to infinitely variable conditions constitute the essence of the program.” United States ex rel. Knauff v. Shaughnessy, 338 U.S. 537, 543 (1950) (internal quotation marks omitted). Consistent with this understanding, the INA vested the Attorney General (now the Secretary of Homeland Security) with broad authority to “establish such regulations; . . . issue such instructions; and perform such other acts as he deems necessary for carrying out his authority” under the statute. 
[The Department of Homeland Security’s Authority to Prioritize Removal of Certain Aliens Unlawfully Present in the United States and to Defer Removal of Others, Karl Thompson, DOJ OLC, November 19, 2014] 

However, Kritarch Cohen decided that the judiciary can now review prosecutorial discretion decisions.  This is a horrendous power grab by the kritarchs.  Judges can now not only judge criminal and civil cases, but also make the prosecutorial decisions themselves.  Basically Kritarch Cohen has abolished the Executive and Legislative Branches of government, creating a judicial dictatorship, a kritarchy.  This kritarch has fundamentally assaulted the separation of powers principle in the Constitution.  Cohen is assuming the full power of the executive branch to administer his own executive amnesty for illegal aliens.  Something this writer warned about. 

And this is all the fault of President Trump.  His failure to end the DACA program has now resulted in the creation of a permanent program of amnesty for illegal aliens administered by kritarchs usurping the authority of both Congress and the President.

It is time to impeach Kritarch Howard Cohen!  President Trump should slap down Kritarch Cohen by ending the DACA program and should fire John Kelly for his support for this egregious and unconstitutional program now in the hands of the kritarchs that is doing so much damage to the Constitution and the Trump Administration.

Arrest The Mexican Kritarch

My latest up on VDare:

The unsurprising news that three Democratic judges on the notorious Ninth Circuit have again blocked the Trump Administration’s suspension both of visa issuances for six Muslim countries (the “travel ban”) and of the refugee influx is just further evidence of our emerging kritarchy—Leftist judges are seizing control of immigration policy, as they have in so many other areas of American life since the disastrous Brown decision. Ultimately, there must be an epic confrontation between this imperial judicial branch and America’s elected representatives—or the U.S. Constitution will indeed have proved to be “a suicide pact” and the Historic American Nation will be swamped by court-protected Third World immigration.

ICE SVU Denounces Reporting #IllegalAliens

In a strange turn of events, Thomas D. Homan, Acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), has allowed the official Twitter account of ICE SVU to denounce the reporting of illegal aliens to ICE.

Fake fliers purporting to be from Immigration and Customs Enforcement notifying people of how they can report an illegal immigrant were distributed around Washington, D.C., this week.
The fliers contained the logo from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and included details about the offenses related to harboring, encouraging or inducing and aiding or abetting illegal immigrants.
[Fake ICE Fliers In DC Tell People How To Report Illegal Immigrants, by Melissa Quinn, Washington Examiner, June 1, 2017]

Instead of embracing the opportunity to stick it to the illegal sanctuary city of Washington, DC, Homan and the ICE bureaucracy moved to assist illegal aliens by denouncing the flyers as illegitimate, despite the fact that the telephone number on the flyers was the official telephone number for reporting illegal aliens, 1-866-DHS-2ICE (347-2423).

The posters also directed people to a phone number to call if they would like to report an illegal immigrant.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the fliers were not from the agency.
"Notices circulating in #Washington #DC are NOT from @ICEgov," Immigration and Customs Enforcement said on its Twitter account.

The public can contact Homan at (802) 872-6050 or here to ask him if ICE does not want information from the public about illegal aliens.  Has Homan decided to ignore orders from Secretary John Kelly and President Trump to arrest illegal aliens?  That would be a serious violation of his oath of office. Contact Homan and ask him if he disregards the orders from his superiors.

Catch And Release Is Back

Well, catch-and-release is back under President Trump.  Instead of telling the Cambodian government that they will accept the deportation of their undesirable criminal citizen Sreynuon Lunn, the Trump Administration and Acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas D. Homan, rolled right over for the ACLU after they claimed Lunn should be released to continue his life of crime.

A man at the center of an immigrants-rights case that was heard by the state Supreme Judicial Court in April has been released from federal custody after civil liberties advocates challenged his prolonged detention for immigration violations.
Sreynuon Lunn, 32, who was born to Cambodian parents in a refugee camp in Thailand, had been in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement since Feb. 6 as authorities tried to deport him to Cambodia.
[Immigrant Who Can’t Be Deported To Cambodia Released From Detention, by Milton Valencia, Boston Globe, May 24, 2017]

Cambodia claims that Lunn is not a citizen of Cambodia (The Kingdom of Kampuchea).

Cambodian officials do not consider him a citizen of that country and will not allow him to enter.

Thai officials say he is not a citizen of their country, either, because he was born in a refugee camp, which left Lunn in limbo in federal custody as the authorities sought to obtain travel documents for him.

According to Cambodian nationality law, that is not correct.  Cambodia practices the legal principle of jus sanguinis in the transfer of nationality; to wit, a person born abroad to one Cambodian parent is a Cambodian citizen.

Chapter II
Khmer Nationality/Citizenship By Birth
Article 4:
1.Shall obtain Khmer nationality/citizenship regardless of the place of birth for:
-any legitimate child who is born from a parent ( a mother or father) who has Khmer nationality/ citizenship , or
-any illegitimate child who is born from and recognized by a parent (a mother or father) who has Khmer nationality, or
-any child who is not recognized by the mother and father (parents), when upon the court passed a judgement stating that such child was really born from a parent (a mother or father) who has Khmer nationality/citizenship,
[Law On Nationality, RefWorld, UNHCR] 

So, the real issue is that the United States is not enforcing its will on the puny Kingdom of Cambodia, and there is no reason not to, as Cambodia is the stalking horse for Red China in the South East Asian Treaty Organization (SEATO), constantly doing Red China's business in that organization, interfering with appropriate self-defense measures against the Red Menace.

Time to put Lunn on a plane to Cambodia.  If the Cambodians refuse his entry, then halt the issuance of all visas, non-immigrant and immigrant, if necessary.  Cambodians would revolt, as most are seeking to come to the United States in some manner or other.

RINOs Committing Another Major Error

The creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was a major blunder.  President Jorge Bush was correct to initially oppose its creation.  Nothing in DHS or the break-up of the immigration enforcement responsibility into three major components was an improvement over the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).  In fact, things got much worse.  This writer addressed the issue years ago when other RINOs were seeking to codify the illegal changes Jorge Bush made when DHS was created and make the current situation with immigration enforcement spread over three components, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). [RINOs Rush To Legitimize The Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, by Federale, Federale Blog, August 7, 2014]

Unfortunately, RINO Bob Goodlatte, has decided that the current haphazard, inefficient, and broken immigration enforcement system has to be codified.  Essentially Goodlatte is making statutory the failed current system of immigration law enforcement, and the ongoing fraud amnesty that USCIS is currently administering on behalf of illegal aliens engaged in fraudulent applications.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) today introduced two bills to authorize and reauthorize key immigration component agencies at the Department of Homeland Security to ensure our nation’s immigration laws are enforced, and maintain the generosity and integrity of America’s legal immigration system.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Authorization Act (H.R. 2406) authorizes ICE for the first time in law and ensures its core mission is the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws. Notably, the bill makes targeted reforms to both Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) within ICE to maximize their efficiency and effectiveness. It also codifies the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office (VOICE), an office created by the Trump Administration to provide access to information and resources to victims of crimes committed by removable aliens as well as to the families of victims.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Reauthorization Act (H.R. 2407) reauthorizes the agency, which is tasked with processing immigrant and nonimmigrant benefits petitions for those seeking temporary visas, lawful permanent residence, international adoption, and others. USCIS also adjudicates naturalization applications and manages the E-Verify system.
[Goodlatte Introduces Bills to Authorize and Reform Key Immigration Agencies, by Beth Breeding, Press Release, Office of Bob Goodlatte, May 11, 2017]

Nothing in either authorization act provides real reforms, but merely give statutory authorization to changes Jorge Bush made administratively to what was actually created by the Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002, the Bureau of Border Protection (BBP).  While the envisioned BBP was inferior to the organization of the legacy INS, it mixed customs and immigration enforcement, but it did keep all immigration enforcement and benefits in one component.  However, as Jorge Bush was opposed to immigration enforcement, the creation of ICE and the subsequent bifurcation of immigration enforcement in ICE into what was first the Office of Investigations and Detention and Removal Operations, was by design, a design to make immigration enforcement less efficient and effective, which it was immediately successful at.  The situation only became worse when the sub-components were renamed Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).  Even the bad word "deportation" was removed to make it a more politically correct agency.

HSI immediately developed it's own culture of avoiding immigration law enforcement.  The agency culture that developed over the Bush and Obama years was that they did not get involved in arresting illegal aliens.  They became instead ICE Special Victims Unit (ICE SVU).  Today ICE SVU continues to resist immigration enforcement and despite orders from Secretary John Kelly and President Donald Trump, ICE SVU continues the policy of "catch-and-release" for illegal aliens.  Unlike ERO, it even requires that the Special Agents in ICE SVU get permission from ICE attorneys at the Office of the Principle Legal Advisor (OPLA) before they can arrest an illegal alien.  Can you imagine if a local police officer could not make an arrest without the permission of not only a supervisor, but the Department's attorneys as well?  Arrests and enforcement of laws would collapse, and that is ICE SVU's plan, make no arrests, especially of illegal aliens!  And Bob Goodlatte wants to codify that ongoing amnesty for illegal aliens in law.

Worse yet, Goodlatte wants to codify and extend the failed USCIS into law as well.  USCIS is actively hostile to enforcing immigration law and preventing fraud, but open to supporting Muslim terrorists and refugees.  USCIS bureaucrats have provided benefits to terrorists, sabotaged Trump policies, and acted to thwart other DHS agencies in fighting terrorism. Their adjudicators and Office of Chief Counsel attorneys regularly interfere with fraud investigations and determinations to the benefit of those aliens committing fraud.  TNote that none of the USCIS employees who aided the San Bernardino terrorists have been fired or prosecuted.  That is not something to reward, but Bob Goodlatte wants to do that.  This writer suggested reorganizing and toughening up USCIS by changing its culture and behavior, but Bob Goodlatte ignored that good advice.  [Taming U.S. Citizenship And Immigration Services, by Federale, Federale Blog, December 17, 2016]

And it gets even worse, Secretary John Kelly is seeking to reorganize DHS and at the top of his list should be combining the four immigration enforcement sub-components of DHS, HSI, ERO, USCIS, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).  Four immigration sub-components of DHS are wasteful.  Each has its own duplicative programs and offices, especially those dedicated to management, personnel, technology, and offices of counsel.  Instead of four personnel systems and administrators, management offices, technology, and counsel, much less the agency heads, a reorganization would save hundreds of millions by removing duplicative effort and employees, save millions on by establishing on technology and computer system.  This writer suggested those reforms as well.  [Trump Orders Government Reorganization, Start With DHS, by Federale, Federale Blog, May 6, 2017]

President Trump and Secretary Kelly should reject RINO Goodlatte's effort to codify the duplicative and incompetence in ICE and USCIS, and instead act to reform the DHS immigration components, creating one face to the public on immigration issues, both enforcement and benefits.  Kelly and Trump should act to remove those in DHS who support fraud and terrorists, remove those with a bad attitude to arresting illegal aliens, and create a new immigration agency by eliminating the current cornucopia of agencies.  The most aggressive managers from the U.S. Border Patrol and ERO should be the new leaders, setting the example for others, encouraging those who are not with the program to leave or be run over.

Terrorist Campaign Begins, It Will Only Come To Blood Soon

The Democrat Party organized terrorist campaign against the enforcement of immigration laws has begun.  Illegal aliens, their supporters, and political operatives attacked Deportation Officers (DO) of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement And Removal Operations (ERO), who were trying to arrest a Guyanan criminal illegal alien in New York City.  Sadly, this first shot in the terrorist campaign left ICE ERO Officers bewildered, unprepared, and ill equipped to deal with this first battle in the upcoming campaign that will only get bloody.  While no one was hurt, this was just a test of the tactics to be used in this terrorist campaign.  Sadly, no arrests were made by ICE ERO Officers of the criminals who were violating Title 18 United States Code Section 111, Assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or employees.  This writer warned about the plans terrorists groups have to impede the enforcement of immigration laws, including threats, assaults, and interference with enforcement activities in VDare. [In The Streets And The Courts, The Left Plans A Coup. But Trump Can Fight Back, by Federale, VDare, February 14, 2017]

Hardat Sampat, Guyanan Criminal And Deportee

There I warned that ICE was unprepared for The Resistance, the terrorists groups organized by the Democrat Party operatives, and their illegal alien allies.  While ostensibly deny any violent intent, the terrorists always leave that option open, just as the Democrats use the Black Bloc and Antifa at their demonstrations to do the violent work, then deny any connection to those who commit violence, decrying them as fringe groups unassociated with the main protest.

But back to the incident at hand:

A woman kneeled in front of federal immigration agents and prayed Tuesday as they walked her brother — accused of burglary and reentering the country illegally — to an unmarked car in Queens. 
Tensions were high around 10 a.m. on 112th St. near 101st Ave. in Richmond Hill. More than 30 residents were shouting and trying desperately to keep the feds from arresting Hardat Sampat, who is from Guyana.
But the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, who swooped in while driving unmarked cars, boxed in Sampat on the one-way street as the driver of the car in which he was riding tried to get away, witnesses said.
“Why me?” Sampat’s sister wailed, according to family friend Melissa Rivera, 22.
[See It: Federal Immigration Agents Forced To Call For Backup After Residents Attempt To Stop Arrest In Queens, By Elizabeth Keogh and Thomas Tracy, New York Daily News, May 31, 2017]

Bill DeBlasio's New York Police Department cooperated with the terrorists and made no arrests despite the many local law violations.

Facing the growing crowd and blocked in by a car owned by one Sampat’s relatives, ICE agents called for backup. NYPD cops were diverted to the corner for crowd control, but no additional arrests were made.

Hardat Sampat, an apparent Indian Guyanan, has a long criminal history and a previous deportation.

Police arrested Sampat weeks ago for burglarizing the Rockaways home of a 37-year-old woman he knew on April 9 and on April 30. During the second alleged break-in, he vandalized the apartment by spraying white paint on the walls and furniture, according to court papers...
Sampat agreed to be deported to Guyana while he was in a Florida prison facing assault charges about five years ago, but came back to the U.S. illegally to be with his family, neighbors said.

While this particular incident did not result in bloodshed, the next incident will likely not be so bloodless.  With ICE ERO Officers unprepared for the attack, and ICE ERO management and John Kelly not authorizing arrests of the attackers, such actions will soon escalate.  Heed the warning of Federale, like the great Enoch Powell, 'As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see "the River Tiber foaming with much blood"'.
