It's A Start

It appears that the conflict with Sanctuary Cities may be coming to a head.  And the Department of Homeland Security (DHs) may actually be joining the fight.  DHS and it's main interior enforcement component, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement And Removal Operations (ERO) may have decided that they have been playing Mr. Nice Guy for too long.  While there has been much Sturm Und Drang about immigration arrests, those arrests have not been increasing as fast as could be, nor have those arrests targeted non-criminal aliens as opposed to the criminal aliens that are targeted.  To date the mantra of ICE has been that they chose specific targets to arrest, generally criminal aliens, previous deportees, and those ordered deported but who have not left the United States whether it be a deportation in abstentia, those benefiting from the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, or those recently ordered deported.  What has not happened is the general enforcement of immigration laws directed against illegal aliens in the United States not near the top of the priorities for ICE; criminal aliens, previous deportees, absconding deportees, and gang members.  What is not happening is work-site enforcement and raids against concentrations against illegal aliens.

After months of complaints against Sanctuary Cities and law enforcement agencies who refuse to honor immigration detainers, it appears things may be changing.  One does not want to raise the hopes of national conservatives and patriotic immigration reformers, but this may be the beginning  of the beginning for Operation Wetback II.  This author has been long urging comprehensive immigration enforcement, as opposed to comprehensive immigration reform, e.g., an concerted effort to enforce immigration laws in general across the United States, but also targeting Sanctuary Cities and States as well.

And lo and behold, it appears that despite sabotage in the ranks of ICE, someone has got the message sent by this blog and the recalcitrance of Sanctuary Cities; enforcement must come first.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials announced Thursday they had arrested nearly 500 people in a four-day operation targeting "sanctuary cities."  
The agency said it targeted individuals from across the country, in what it called "Operation Safe City," arresting 101 individuals in Los Angeles and 107 in Philadelphia. Other areas targeted include New York City, Denver, Portland, Ore., Baltimore,Cook County, Ill., Santa Clara County, Calif., Washington, D.C., and Massachusetts.The arrests reflect the Trump administration's desire to crack down on sanctuary cities, which refuse to help federal authorities enforce immigration laws.
[ICE Arrests Neary 500 Immigrants In Sanctuary Cities, by Julia Manchester, The Hill, September 28, 2017]

Perhaps this recent action is the start of a new Operation Wetback targeting Sanctuary Cities who defy Federal immigration law.  We shall soon find out.  This could be a beautiful beginning.

Complete Fail By Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III

Immigration judges are a problem.  A major problem.  Their selection is fraught with danger as Immigration Judges are a danger to the Constitution, the law, and the nation.  And they are ambitious.  They want to be real judges and make their own immigration law and policy.  They want to be Kritarchs.  One would think that the Attorney General, who choses Immigration Judges would take care and discretion in their selection.  One would think that Jeff Sessions would take such care.  He has been talking the talk on the immigration issue, however his walking the walk on the issue is much to be desired.  However, in a matter of days after a selection of one particular Immigration Judge, the truth came out, James McCarthy, appointed by Jeff Sessions, is a Kritarch.

HARTFORD — After 36 people blocked court access and were arrested, the Ramos family got word Monday evening that a New York immigration judge had granted them a stay so he can consider reopening the couple’s deportation case.
Attorney Michael Boyle said Franklin and Gioconda Ramos will likely be here until at least Oct. 18...
“We are very happy that Judge McCarthy took this action to preserve his jurisdiction over the motion to reopen. We hope that ICE will re-evaulate its position and not oppose the motion, and we hope that the judge will approve it,” Boyle said in a statement.
[Judge Grants Undocumented Connecticut Couple Stay In Deportation Case, by Mary O'Leary, New Haven Register, September 25, 2017]

So, McCarthy, who should know better, as he was an attorney for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA), before his appointment to the Executive Office For Immigration Review (EOIR).

Worse yet, the decision was make under threats of violence and illegal blocking of an ICE office.

It was a happy turn of events for the family whose oldest son, Jason Ramos, 24, had been among those participating in the civil disobedience at Immigration Court in Hartford around 8 a.m. when three dozen protesters blocked entry to the Immigration Court in Hartford.
They were among some 200 protesters demonstrating on behalf of the Ramos’s and ICE deportation policies in general as more undocumented immigrants without criminal backgrounds are being ordered to leave.

So, Judge McCarthy was either intimidated or acted with his secret desire to overthrow the immigration system and laws.  Worse yet, McCarthy is at the EOIR office in New York, and acted outside his jurisdiction, as the immigration case is out of the EOIR in Hartford, CT.

To compound his crime and arrogance, McCarthy had no legal justification for his order suspending the deportation of two illegal aliens, Franklin and Gioconda Ramos.

ICE, in its statement, traced the history of the couple’s status issues.
Both had final orders of removal issued by an ICE judge in New York in 2005, but Franklin Ramos said he never received the order and wasn’t aware of it until 2012 when he continued to pursue legal status.
He was then held for three months, but later was allowed to stay under prosecutorial discretion, which the Obama administration had used for the undocumented who were not a priority for removal. 
After years of renewed stays, on Aug. 1, ICE, operating under the new policies of the Trump administration, proceeded with the original 2005 removal order.

Both entered the United States illegally in 1993, then arrested in the early 2000s, then agreed to leave voluntarily after immigration court hearings in 2005.  This is called Voluntary Departure, an agreement to leave the United States before an Immigration Judge after they admitted they were in the United States illegally and had no legal recourse to stay.

Now the illegal aliens are lying, claiming that they never had an immigration hearing.  However, they benefited from the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty after being ordered deported again in 2012, being allowed to stay and work.

There is no basis for an Immigration Judge to re-open an immigration case already decided by another judge, and one in which the illegal alien in question did not pursue his options, as the Ramos' did not do both in 2005 nor in 2012.

AG Sessions took some baby steps to reign in the kritarchs in the EOIR, such as issuing orders to limit continuances of immigration hearings that are contributing to the immigration court backlog.  But he needs to do more, including issuing orders to prevent Immigration Judges from reopening immigration cases where there is a final order of removal.  That authority he should restrict to himself, the Attorney General.

In a similar vein, a Federal Kritarch has ordered that the deportations of a group of illegal aliens from Indonesia be halted despite the fact that all the illegal aliens had asylum hearings and were then denied hearings.  The Kritarch wants to review the law to see if he can change that decision.

Clinton Kritarch Patti Saris

A federal judge on Tuesday put on hold the deportation of several dozen Indonesians in New England who had lost their bid to remain in the U.S. and feared persecution if returned home...
A lawsuit on their behalf was filed Monday. A judge in Boston ruled Tuesday that U.S. immigration officials could not remove the Indonesians until a determination was made about whether the court has jurisdiction...
Shawn Neudauer, a spokesman for ICE, said a judge already had ruled the Indonesians had to leave the country and that they had been given to up to two years "to pursue forms of immigration relief" or get their affairs in order.
[Judge Puts Deportations Of Indonesians On Hold, by Michael Casey, Fox/AP, September 26, 2017]

While AG Sessions cannot fire Federal Judge Patti Saris, as he can and should James McCarthy, he can immediately appeal this illegal decision by a Clinton appointee.  Federal Judges have little to no authority over deportation decisions, as due process for aliens is what Congress says it is, as courts have decided. And most certainly not after the illegal alien in question has gone through the whole process of hearing and appeals in the EOIR.

Time for Jeff Sessions to walk the walk.

A Picked Lock And The #DeepState

Many were astounded at the recent raid on the residence of Paul Manafort, former campaign director for President Donald J. Trump.  Some noted that it was unusual in that the FBI agents who raided Manafort's residence at the orders of Robert Mueller, the face of the Deep State.  However few noted the enormous significance of this act.  This action by Mueller and the Federal Kritarch who authorized it show the Deep State will stop at no lie to get President Trump.

First, the facts:

Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet.
[With a Picked Lock and a Threatened Indictment, Mueller’s Inquiry Sets a Tone, by By Sharon Lafraniere, Matt Apuzzo And Adam Goldman, NYT, September 18, 2017]

Usually, when a Federal agent, or any other law enforcement officer at the State level are executing a duly obtained search warrant, there is a requirement that the agents serve that warrant only between 6:00 am and 10:00 pm, and to gain entry to the place to be search, they must knock and announce, giving the resident of the dwelling to be search a reasonable amount of time to come to the door and admit the agents.  This is called the Knock and Announce Rule.

There are exceptions to the Knock and Announce Rule, those are called No-Knock Warrants.  This is where the officer or agent applying for the warrant must prove to the magistrate reviewing the warrant application that to knock and announce would result in the destruction of evidence or violent resistence.  These are highly unusual, as not using Knock and Announce can have deadly consequences for both the subject of the search and the officers serving the warrant, or worse yet, an innocent where the police raid the wrong address.

However, No-Knock Warrants are necessary.  And they are used in cases where there is an exception danger to officers serving the warrant from violent subjects, such as gangs,  where evidence can be easily destroyed, like drugs flushed down the toilet, or terrorism cases.  The usual No-Knock Warrant at the Federal level is the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) raiding a drug den or dealer, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives and Really Big Fires raiding a motorcycle gang dealing in guns, the Federal Bureau of Investigation Hostage Rescue Team (FBI HRT) raiding an Al-Queda suspect, ICE Special Victims Unit raiding a child pornographer, or the U.S. Marshal's Service raiding the hideout of a wanted prison escapee.  Those conditions make knocking and announcing an invitation to a shootout, electronic evidence being destroyed, or drugs going down the drain. Common sense.  In my experience of 26 years in Federal law enforcement, I have never even sought a No-Knock Warrant.  They are almost never needed in white-collar crime, as the Manafort case is, a mere financial crimes, and only being investigated to force Manafort to lie to implicate President Trump. Manafort has no criminal history, no history of violence, no involvement in drugs, weapons, or terrorism.  There was no justification for the No-Knock Warrant, unless the agents lied to the magistrate.

However, No-Knock Warrants are not supposed to be given out willy nilly, and especially not to send a message to suspects in a case.  However that is what has happened.  Note that the Mueller team even photographed Manafort's designer suits. Manafort could not have flushed those suits down the toilet any more than he could have destroyed the mass of documents that were taken from his house. That in itself proves two points.  One, there was no need for a No-Knock Warrant,  and two, that the warrant itself was designed not to obtain evidence of a crime, but to intimidate Manafort and solicit perjury in the Deep State's war on Donald J. Trump. There is no evidentiary value in Manafort's suits other than to prejudice the jury against a wealthy and successful man.  Expensive suits are not a crime, and clothing never seized as the fruit of a crime. Jewelry, expensive cars, even real property, but never personal items like clothing.  And since the suits weren't seized as evidence, why were those suits photographed other than for intimidation.

The Deep State is at war with President Trump, and they won't stop at anything, including obviously lying to a Federal magistrate about the possibility of Manafort destroying evidence when agents knock at his door to serve the warrant.

Time for someone to report these FBI agents to the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General!

Non-Hispanic Sabotage At ICE?

So, the #LyingPress is concerned that my identification of corruption and sabotage in the Department of Homeland Security is racist.  Brandon Rittiman thinks "Hispanics" are a race.  Hispanics are not a race, as decreed by official policy of the Federal government, e.g. the Bureau of Census and the Office of Management and Budget.

Hispanic or Latino and Not Hispanic or Latino. Hispanic origin can be viewed as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth of the person or the person’s parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. People who identify their origin as Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish may be any race.
[Overview of Race and Hispanic Origin: 2010, By Karen R. Humes, Nicholas A. Jones, and Roberto R. Ramirez, Bureau of Census, March 2011]

The Whitest Of White Hispanics

Another Very White Hispanic

So, since the very white Franciso Franco is Hispanic, you can't be racist against Hispanics, unless you are racist against whatever race they are.  But in the interests of racial comity, I will expose a white DHS employee for sabotage and misconduct.  But not because he is white, but because he appears to be sabotaging immigration enforcement in the Denver area.

Jeffrey Lynch, Pulling A David Marin?

The suspect is Jeffrey Lynch, Acting Field Office Director (FOD) for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).  The fun thing about the following breathless expose is that the Cultural Marxist reporter thought he was exposing misconduct that was detrimental to illegal aliens, but ended up exposing an ICE employee working to restrict the arrests of illegal aliens.  Smooth move.

Matthew Keller didn’t notice the undercover ICE agents until they had his client, Antonio García, in handcuffs. As soon as he realized what was happening, the attorney with the Meyer Law Firm pulled out his cell phone and started filming the arrest, which occurred on May 5.
“Do you guys have a warrant?” Keller asked the three ICE agents — two men and one woman — as they escorted García to an unmarked gray SUV parked in front of the Lindsey Flanigan Courthouse in Denver.
[ICE Courthouse Busts 10X Higher Than City Knew, by Chris Walker, Westworld, September 19, 2017]

Shocking, an immigration attorney is concerned that his criminal illegal alien client was arrested for being in the United States illegally.  But this attorney shocked as he is at arrests of illegal aliens is even more shocked that the arrests are a violation of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty for criminal illegal aliens.  The saga of arrests at courthouses has been going on for years, and the intrepid attorney actually found the official Obama Regime policy for courthouse arrests, and basically it was don't arrest anyone at courthouses except Al-Qaeda terrorists and convicted felons.

What Keller didn’t know when García was apprehended was that the ICE agents involved may have been breaking Immigration and Customs Enforcement policy with regard to making courthouse arrests. Nor did Keller know just how often courthouse arrests like the one he was witnessing are happening in Denver and surrounding jurisdictions including Adams, Jefferson and Arapahoe counties.
Westword recently obtained 29 pages of internal ICE documents through a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents (published in full at the bottom of this article) show that ICE still makes its agents review and sign a protocol concerning courthouse arrests, even though Trump’s executive order effectively loosened rules agency-wide. The FOIA documents include a memo sent by the acting director at ICE’s Denver field office, Jeffrey Lynch, detailing how courthouse arrests should focus on four categories of undocumented persons: “aliens engaged in or suspected of terrorism or espionage,” “aliens convicted of an offense for which an element was active participation in a criminal street gang,” “aliens convicted of an offense classified as a felony in the convicting jurisdiction” and “aliens convicted of an ‘aggravated felony,’ as that term is defined in [immigration law].” Lynch’s directive, sent to his top-level officers on May 12 (seven days after Garcia’s arrest), is based on guidelines from a November 2014 memo issued by former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson.

It appears that Acting FOD Jeffrey Lynch got that memo, but forgot about the memo from then Secretary John Kelly that the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty was over.  Lynch, either on his own authority, running his own Administrative Amnesty like David Marin, or at the order of some higher up, the article is not clear, appears to want to restrict arrests at courthouses, issuing instructions to his Deportation Officers to follow the Jeh Johnson rules, not those of Trump Administration.

Curiously, the Deportation Officers (DO) see to have been ignoring Lynch's orders.  The emails in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) release appear to have some DOs and Supervisory DOs asking pointed questions, as at some point the Obama policy went away, but Lynch seems to be bringing it back, which would be a point of contention with the union representing the officers.

So, for the record, this blog criticizes all saboteurs and #DeepState bureaucrats, whether anonymous or identified, regardless of race or Hispanicness, as defined by the Census, who are engaged in undermining immigration law enforcement.

In his incompetance or mendacity, Lynch has made the work of Deportation Officers more difficult and appears to have threatened disiplinary action if officers don't follow his amnesty program.  So concerned were the officers that they responded with obvious questions that Lynch apparently was set back on his heels by.

On May 12, one ICE employee wrote: “First and foremost, I would like to have a specific, written definition of ‘At or Near.’ That’s way too nebulous as it stands.”

In the same email chain, another officer wrote: “Can there be a clarifying statement to this new policy that will protect those officers making a probation arrest in a location where the court and probation are co-located?”

Lynch's actions and ill advised memorandum to Deportation Officers has emboldened the Treason Bar, and they are looking to use his amnesty memorandum as the basis to file lawsuits against ICE to stop courthouse arrests.

Courthouse arrests may come to a head, and not just because of ICE’s inconsistencies following its own protocols. With local officials such as Hancock and powerful legal authorities across the nation, including California’s chief justice, asking for the practice to stop, Gonzales and Meyer believe it’s time for the judiciary to decide on the issue...
Even before he reviewed the FOIA documents, Keller says he was going to challenge García’s arrest. “We were ready to dig in and fight his case,” he says.

This writer warned about this campaign by the Treason Bar and Kritarchs seeking to make their own immigration policy, and ICE appears to be handing them weapons in this conflict.  Time for DHS and the Department of Justice to make Federal supremacy in the immigration area abundantly clear to State officials, executive or judicial, who are seeking to interfere.  Some timely arrests might be in order.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Talks The Talk In Portland

Amid the usual rioting and obnoxious illegal aliens, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a major speech against sanctuary cities and illegal immigration.  Sessions can certainly talk the talk.  And he laid into Portland and Oregon for their support of illegal aliens, especially criminal illegal aliens.

To get on the right track, there are a number of things we must fix. A key concern is that some jurisdictions have undertaken to undo our immigration laws through so-called “sanctuary policies.”
Such policies undermine the moral authority of law and undermine the safety of the jurisdictions that adopt them.
In Portland and all over Oregon, here’s how it works right now: once the police arrest an illegal alien and charge him with a crime, they fingerprint him and book him into their jail.
When federal immigration authorities learn that this criminal alien is in a jurisdiction’s custody, our ICE officers issue a detainer request accompanied by a civil arrest warrant and ask the city to either notify them before they release the criminal or to hold the criminal alien long enough to transfer him to federal custody in a safe setting.
But political leaders have directed state and local officers to refuse these requests. Cooperation has been a key element in informed crime fighting for decades.
The result is that police are forced to release the criminal alien back into the community without regard to the seriousness of his crimes or the length of his rap sheet. Think about that: Police may be forced to release pedophiles, rapists, murderers, drug dealers, and arsonists back into the communities where they had no right to be in the first place. They should according to law and common sense be processed and deported.
[Full Speech: Sessions' Remarks On 'Sanctuary Cities' In Portland, by KGW Staff, KGW, September 19, 2017]

Strangely, he lauded the Obama appointed United States Attorney (USA) for District of Oregon, Billy Williams, a USA apparently unconcerned about sanctuary cities and illegal immigration.  And a USA whom leftist Democrats want to keep in place for obvious reasons, Williams is not dedicated to ending illegal immigration, the scourge of drugs, and panders to radical Islam.

The American people rightly want a lawful immigration system that keeps us safe and serves the national interest.
U.S. Attorney Billy Williams has been eloquent about sanctuary policies: If we’re going to make this community safer, then we have to work together. Cooperation between law enforcement works. It saves lives.
And so to all the law enforcement here— – federal, state, and local— – thank you for all that you do. President Trump is grateful, I am grateful, and the entire Department of Justice is grateful for your service. We have your back and you have our thanks.

This is strange, as Williams has refused, despite overwhelming evidence, to criminally prosecute a Mexican judge and activist, Monica Herranz, who aided an illegal alien to escape from arrest by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Williams punted responsibility for a Federal criminal investigation to a local ethics board, rather than to ICE or the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As expected, the ethics board cleared Herranz despite testimony by the defense attorney for the illegal alien and the Assistant District Attorney present in the courtroom that Herranz allowed illegal alien Diddier Pacheco Salazar, to use Herranz' private exit from a courtroom to escape from ICE officers waiting outside the courtroom.

 Criminals Herranz and Salazar

The question now is we know Sessions can talk the talk, but can he walk the walk of immigration enforcement?

Besides indicting and arresting Herranz, Sessions has other public officials in the country both major and minor seeking to aid illegal aliens; Jerry Brown, Janet Napolitano, and Sheriff Vicki Hennessy of San Francisco come to mind immediately.

Napolitano should be at the top of the list, as she is now suing the Department of Homeland Security to impose a permanent DACA Amnesty by judicial fiat while at the same time she is protecting and encouraging illegal aliens to enter and remain in the United States by providing access to a university education at little or no cost to illegal aliens, including those who are not DACA illegal aliens.  And she admits that the fundamental basis of the lawsuit is to protect illegal aliens from deportation.

Instead it is motivated by the harm that eliminating DACA will cause to the so-called Dreamers at the University of California, the 10-campus system I now lead, and to the nearly 800,000 Dreamers across our country...
The government is telling these young people that , as a country, we do not value their obvious worth, and that we intend to treat them no differently than a recent adult border crosser. This is wrong, unjust, mean and legally dubious.
As president of the University of California, it is my job to protect the students on our campuses. As the author of DACA, I know its legal basis and its aims. As both, I am suing the administration because its actions on Tuesday will harm innocent young people and, by extension, all of us.
[Janet Napolitano: Why I'm suing the Trump administration over DACA, by Janet Napolitano, LA Times, September 8, 2017]

Napolitano admits that DACA is a policy she wants and demands the court impose it.  What she did not say is that she also protects other illegal aliens enrolled in the University of California system not currently in DACA.  Neither group of illegal aliens has legal status in the United States, and therefore have no recourse to remain.

Despite claiming that the DACA program was legal, the same Department of Justice (DOJ) opinion on DACA said the illegal aliens covered remain illegal aliens.

As has historically been true of deferred action, these proposed deferred action programs would not “legalize” any aliens who are unlawfully present in the United States: Deferred action does not confer any lawful immigration status, nor does it provide a path to obtaining permanent residence or citizenship. 
[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, by Karl Thompson, Department of Justice, Office of Legal Counsel, November 19, 2014]

And, despite Napolitano's claim that there are due process rights created for illegal aliens under DACA and the program must be revoked only after a certain procedure, that is not correct, as the same DOJ states clearly:

A grant of deferred action under the proposed programs would remain in effect for three years, subject to renewal, and could be terminated at any time at DHS’s discretion. See Johnson Deferred Action Memorandum at 2, 5.

To walk the walk, Sessions should order a coordinated program of prosecution of public officials who aid illegal aliens, especially Janet Napolitano and Monica Herranz.

Time For Jeff Sessions To Move Against San Francisco

More information is out about one of Obama's illegal alien kids, Erick Garcia-Pineda, who was released by a liberal Immigration Judge from custody after rolling over the border during the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty for MS-13 gangbangers. And the crime is continuing to be described as a robbery gone wrong.  Well killing during an armed robbery is not unusual, that is the whole point of using a weapon during a robbery, but this really appears to be a gang hit.

First, the victim,  Abel Esquivel  had his photograph in the LA Times, and it looks like he is flashing gang signs in the photo.

Abel Esquivel, Gangbanger?

Note the placement of the index and middle fingers mimicking an sideways V sign, which is a common gang sign.  Then there is the question as to why Esquivel was shot and other not during an alleged robbery spree by the accused gangbangers. Note the Esquivel is lauded as a "community activist" which brings to mind Cultural Marxists like Barack Obama, or Alex Sanchez, "former" MS-13 gangbanger and "community activist" with Homies Unidos, a gang front.

Was this a opportunistic hit?  Could be, but in any event bringing people like Esquivel to the United States brings only more crime.  All involved were Hispanics, most immigrants or an anchor baby like Esquivel.

This brings us to the next issue.  The San Francisco Sheriff's Department, headed by Vicki Hennessy, was deeply involved with at least two of the killers of Esquivel recently; two were released by the Sheriff's Department at the orders of Hennessy.
ICE agents also asked the local sheriff in May to detain a second man arrested locally who is also charged with Esquivel’s murder, Jesus Perez-Araujo, 24.
San Francisco police arrested Perez-Araujo for possession of marijuana and illegal possession of brass knuckles. He was charged only with misdemeanor possession of brass knuckles, court records showed...
Authorities say Garcia-Pineda had been detained by immigration authorities in December and released from custody in April pending deportation. An immigration judge required him to wear an ankle monitor and routinely check in with immigration officials.
He failed to show up for his August appointment, said James Schwab, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
His ankle monitor was removed when he was arrested on Sept. 3 by sheriff’s deputies on misdemeanor battery charges. ICE says the Sheriff’s Department ignored a request to block his release from jail that day.
[Gunman Was Facing Deportation When He Shot Popular Community Volunteer, Police Say,  Associated Press/LA Times, September 15, 2017]

So, besides the killer of Kate Steinle, the San Francisco Sheriff's Department appears to be acting as if it's purpose is to protect illegal alien criminals, rather than see that the people of California are protected and defy Federal immigration laws.

To add to this support by the City and County of San Francisco and the San Francisco Sheriff's Department for open defiance of Federal law, the State of California has passed a Sanctuary State law that requires the State and all cities and counties to aid illegal aliens to remain in the United States by various actions, in defiance of the Constitution, and the Oath to that Constitution that all State officers take as required by Article IV, Clause 3.

California lawmakers on Saturday passed a “sanctuary state” bill to protect immigrants without legal residency in the U.S., part of a broader push by Democrats to counter expanded deportation orders under the Trump administration.
The legislation by Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles Mexico), the most far-reaching of its kind in the country, would limit state and local law enforcement communication with federal immigration authorities, and prevent officers from questioning and holding people on immigration violations...
Others pointed to the opposition from sheriffs organizations, saying SB 54 tied officers’ hands, allowing serial thieves, chronic drug abusers and gang members to slip through the cracks. Supporters countered the Trump administration was trying to paint all immigrants in the country illegally as criminals.
They pointed to provisions in the bill that would make hospitals, schools and courthouses safe zones for immigrants from federal immigration authorities at a time of fear for some communities.
[California Lawmakers Approve Landmark 'Sanctuary State' Bill To Expand Protections For Immigrants, by Jazmine Ulloa, LA Times, September 16, 2017]

And, it was expressly designed to protect illegal aliens in the United States.  That is what is the basis for the crime of aiding illegal aliens, prohibited by Title 8 United States Code, Section 1324.

It was at the center of a legislative package filed by Democrats in an attempt to protect more than 2.3 million people living in the state illegally. Other legislative proposals and budget deals have expanded workplace protections against raids from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and increased legal defense services for immigrants facing deportation and financial aid for students without legal residency.

Unfortunately, the response of the Trump Administration has been less than ineffectual.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions moved against sanctuary cities by ending certain law enforcement grants to the offenders, but that decision was put on hold by a corrupt kritarch. While I expect that decision to be overturned on appeal, that will take time and is not certain given the idiot Anthony Kennedy still breathes air.

What the Trump Administration refuses to do is to take action not subject to vicissitudes of corrupt kritarchs.  The Executive Branch has great latitude in the enforcement of criminal and immigration laws.  The Executive Branch can make an example of Chicago, Sheriff Vicki Hennessy, or the State of California for their defiance, but the Trump Administration refuses to take that action.  This writer previously suggests a new Operation Wetback to make examples of States and localities in defiance of immigration laws. [Mini Operation Wetback, by Federale, Federale Blog, December 16, 2017] As did my inspiration to write on the immigration issue, VDare's own Juan Mann.  [Time For Operation Wetback II, by Juan Mann, VDare, February 8, 2003]

All the kritarchs in the world can't stop the Department of Justice from indicting Vicki Hennessy for aiding illegal aliens.  Though generally this writer supports law enforcement, in this case it is time for the DOJ to start indicting front line officers and deputies involved in the Sanctuary City movement. In the case of the release of Erick Garcia-Pineda, also known as the Rat, the DOJ should start with orders to Acting United States Attorney Brian Stretch in the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of California for the very public arrest of the San Francisco Sheriff's Department Deputy Sheriff who cut the ankle monitor off of Garcia-Pineda, then indict and arrest the deputies who released Garcia-Pineda, Perez-Araujo, and Kate Steinle's killer, Juan Francisco López-Sánchez, from jail after ignoring detainers issued for all.  In return for their testimony, they will be given sweet-heart deals, but will be required to testify against Hennessy and any other department officials who implemented policies for the release of illegal aliens in order to assist them to remain in the United States.  The arrest of the deputies is needed pour encourage les autres to defy illegal Sanctuary City orders and policies.  What will follow is the perp walk of Sheriff Hennessy for violating Title 8 USC 1324.

Vicki Hennessy, Criminal And Oath Breaker

The next step would be for President Trump to order Social Security Administration and Internal Revenue Service officials to provide to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) all records related to unlawful employment.  Then Acting Secretary of DHS Elaine Duke would order ICE officials in San Francisco, Chicago, and other sanctuary jurisdictions to immediately begin large scale worksite raids in those sanctuary jurisdictions.  The purpose would be to cause a panic among illegal aliens, inducing them to leave en-masse. To make them fear, fear the laws of the United States.

Next, Acting Secretary Duke would order the deployment of Border Patrol Agents to the interior, especially in California, to resume patrols of urban and rural areas of California to find and arrest illegal aliens.  Governor Jerry Brown can claim California is a sanctuary for illegal aliens, but President Trump can make California not a sanctuary, but a tomb, figuratively speaking, for illegal aliens.

Attorney General Sessions can then order the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California, Philip Talbert, to subpoena all records of illegal aliens who received California Driver's Licenses, commonly known as AB 60 driver's licenses.  Talbert should also be ordered to begin criminal proceedings against Governor Jerry Brown and Jean Shiomoto, Director of the California Department of Motor Vehicles, including indictments and arrests.

Attorney General Sessions should also move to have all the California State legislators who voted for the Sanctuary State law removed from office for violation of their Oath of Office, Article IV, Clause 3, to uphold the Constitution, and have the Sanctuary State law declared unconstitutional.

California thinks their Sanctuary State law makes them invulnerable.  California is not invulnerable. California thinks they are because the Trump Administration has let them think they are by inaction. Once the arrests start, once the raids start, and once those California legislators are removed from office for violating the Constitution, they won't feel that way.  President Trump has options, time to get in the fight!

Hero Cop Jason Stockley Exonerated Like George Zimmerman

Narrative collapse took another bullet, figuratively.  Hero cop Jason Stockley, unjustly accused of planting a throwdown gun on a violent black thug, was found not-guilty in a bench trial in St. Louis today.  Blacks immediately rioted as usual.

Thirteen people were arrested during protests Friday in downtown St. Louis after a judge found former police officer Jason Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of black motorist Anthony Lamar Smith.
Four police officers were assaulted, with one treated for a hand injury, officials said.
Soon after the verdict, protesters and activists gathered outside the courthouse to voice displeasure. Some could be seen locking arms and praying together, while others held signs, chanting, "No justice, no peace."
[Protests Erupt After Ex-Cop Jason Stockley Found Not Guilty In Black Man's Death, By Dakin Andone and Faith Karimi, CNN, September 15, 2017]

Stockley was only charged because he was a heterosexual white cis-gendered white male, just as all the police officers or civilians charged for shooting black criminals in self-defense were, whether it was Darren Wilson, George Zimmerman, Daniel Pantaleo, or Timothy Loehmann.  In fact, the case against Stockley was taken not from the facts of the case, but from prosecutors and racist Black activists who took a scene from an 90s movie, Internal Affairs, where corrupt Los Angeles Police Department officers plant a switchblade on a suspect who was shot by a trigger happy cop.

Richard Gere, Prototype For The Obama Regime War On Cops

Similarly, Border Patrol Agent Lonnie Schwartz remains under the gun for shooting a rock throwing Mexican drug smuggler.  It was recently revealed that the Obama Regime prosecutors were covering up exculpatory evidence and aided in perpetrating lies about the drug smuggler as just some kid walking home from the store.  It was revealed that the government knew that Elena Rodriguez was not an innocent bystander but actively throwing rocks at Schwartz and other law enforcement officers, but those government officials misled the public about Rodriguez and provided access for Rodriguez' mother to enter the United States to spread that lie, a lie she told to investigating government agents.

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to drop charges against Schwartz and end the campaign against law enforcement officers protecting themselves and others from armed Black and Hispanic criminals.

Another Illegal Alien Killer In Sanctuary City San Francisco

An illegal alien in San Francisco has killed another person and like the murders of Tony Bologna and his sons, Michael and Matthew in San Francisco, this illegal alien should have been in custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  And this illegal alien killer was another fraudulent asylum claimant like Edwin Ramos, the killer of the Balognas, who claimed he was fleeing gang persecution, but in reality coming to the United States to be an MS-13 gang member. Even worse, the gun used was stolen from an San Francisco police officer, similar to the murder of Kate Steinle.

One of three men charged with using a gun stolen from a police officer to kill a San Francisco man last month reportedly was an illegal immigrant who was being monitored by U.S. immigration officials.
Data taken from Erick Garcia Pineda’s electronic monitor confirmed the 18-year-old was in the city’s Mission District on Aug. 15 when 23-year-old Abel Esquivel was murdered in the street, NBC Bay area reported Thursday...
The station, citing unnamed sources, said Garcia-Pineda was wearing a monitoring bracelet at the time of the killing. The suspect was claiming asylum in the U.S., saying he was being harassed by MS-13 gang members, the sources added.
[Illegal Immigrant Murder Suspect Shot Man With Gun Stolen From Cop, Report Says, Fox News, September 13, 2017]

It is not known if Pineda, one of the killers, entered the United States during flood of illegals encouraged by the Obama Regime, but it is more than likely.  And there is no excuse for leaving an illegal alien free to roam the country.  The Obama Regime released these gangbangers deliberately despite warnings that MS-13 and other gangbangers were entering under the guise of children fleeing violence and poverty.

Worse yet, the Obama Regime refused to use Expedited Removal to deal with the flood of illegal aliens, nor has the Trump Administration used Expedited Removal against the ongoing entry of illegal aliens from Central America gaming the asylum system.  Nor did the Obama Regime do what the Reagan Administration did when confronted by a similar problem in the mid 80s.  The Reagan Administration held all illegal aliens flooding in from Central America in custody and deployed immigration judges to the border to quickly deport them.

Time for the Trump Administration to round up all the illegal aliens who flooded in and use Expedited Removal or expedited hearings to quickly remove them.  These aliens are a threat to public safety and Americans' lives.

Brown Run Border, More Hispanic Criminals In DHS

Bill Jordan, Never Sold Fake Rolexes From China And Not Hispanic

The ongoing saga of corrupt Department of Homeland Security employees continues and, as usual, it's a Hispanic problem.

Private investigators hired to crack down on the sale of counterfeit luxury goods had set up the undercover parking lot sting in Mission Valley after seeing an ad on Craigslist for Rolex watches. They didn’t expect to find a Border Patrol agent hawking the timepieces from the trunk of his car.
“I’m going to lose my job,” the agent, Martin Macias, 31, reportedly said as he was taken into custody after a second undercover buy Aug. 2, according to a search warrant affidavit unsealed last week.
[Border Patrol Agent Accused Of Hawking Fake Timepieces From The Trunk Of Car, by Kristina Davis, LA Times, September 12, 2017]

Note that this story was not assigned to a Hispanic reporter, nor did the story note that Macias was Hispanic, nor was the problem of Hispanic misconduct pointed out by the reporter, because they usually point out white crime.  Ongoing Hispanic corruption and misconduct is a real and growing problem, and it can be solved by redirecting recruitment at DHS to whites like Bill Jordan.

President Trump Cuts Off Visas For Yellow, Brown, And Black People

The Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security have finally moved to punish countries that refuse to accept their citizens being deported from the United States.  This was a move a long time coming, and should have happened months ago.  But the real story is that there are no lawsuits.

The Trump administration announced Wednesday it has ordered the State Department to limit certain visas for Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone because those countries have refused to accept the return of its nationals who are deported from the United States.
"International law obligates each country to accept the return of its nationals ordered removed from the United States," Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke said in a statement. "Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone have failed in that responsibility. The United States itself routinely cooperates with foreign governments in documenting and accepting its citizens when asked, as do the majority of countries in the world. However, these countries have failed to do so, and that one-way street ends with these sanctions."
[Trump Cuts Off Visas For Countries That Refuse Deported Immigrants, by Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner, September 13, 2017]

The most flagrant violator, the People's Republic Of China, was left off this action list.  And interestingly there seemed to be a hierarchy in the nature of the visa cut-off.  Yellow countries had the least punitive measures and black countries had the most punitive.

"The U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, has discontinued the issuance of B visas (temporary visitors for business or pleasure) for Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs employees, with the rank of Director General and above, and their families. The U.S. Embassy in Asmara, Eritrea, has discontinued the issuance of all B visas (temporary visitors for business or pleasure)," the State Department announced.
"The United States Embassy in Conakry, Guinea, has discontinued the issuance of B visas (temporary visitors for business or pleasure), and F, J, and M visas (temporary visitors for student and exchange programs) to Guinean government officials and their immediate family members," the memo stated. "The United States Embassy in Freetown, Sierra Leone, has discontinued the issuance of B visas (temporary visitors for business or pleasure) to Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials and immigration officials."

Of the nations though, Cambodia or Kampuchea, is the most flagrant violator, but only a small number of their citizens will be refused visas, an almost miniscule number of refusals.  Eritrea gets the harshest treatment, a total cut off.  All the nations singled out were non-white, all poor, and the nature of the visa refusals differentiated by race and nationality, and the most flagrant violators got the least punishment.  One would think that there would be a 14th Amendment or 4th Amendment claim in there if the claims about the terrorism ban were true, that aliens have a right to due process and non-discrimination in the entry and admission of aliens.

Interestingly there are no lawsuits.  No claims in the press, by the Treason Bar, or the Cultural Marxists that this violates the rights of these aliens to enter into the United States and visit their relatives here.

It does expose the ongoing lawsuits against the ban that President Trump imposed on certain other nations for supporting terrorism and hostility to the United States.  It should be something that the Administration points out to the Supreme Court, that no alien has a right to enter the United States and the Congress of the United States has granted the President the authority to ban any individual or group of persons from entering the United States.  It is called precedent in legal speak.

The #LyingPress And Immigration

The Lying Press is well known for their #FakeNews.  In fact most of what you hear and see in the media is lies.  The #LyingPress does this because the truth is an enemy of their agenda of electing Democrats and electing a new people.  And nowhere is that more true than in the area of immigration reporting.  One would think that reporters would make at least an effort to determine the facts about a particular case, much less making an effort to learn policy and procedure in the area of immigration to at a minimum know when you need to ask more questions and know when you are being lied to or manipulated.  But that is too much to ask, as the #LugenPresse has an agenda, the breaking of the historic American nation.

While the big picture is replete with media bias and lies, the Lying Press also has a problem with the little issues. And one of those little issues is the lies that the Treason Bar, e.g. immigration attorney’s tell, and what illegal aliens and their representatives tell.  And the Lying Press just laps up those lies, not even making an effort to let their readers or viewers know that not only is there more to the story than the unsubstantiated claims of the aliens involved, but the further lies from the Treason Bar are not the end of the story and that the government does not take action against aliens for no reason what so ever.

First, the strange obsession by WCAX Channel 3 of Vermont regarding to minor actions by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that inspects arriving aliens requesting admission to the United States. Tens of thousands of illegal aliens are refused entry to the United States, averaging 752 a day.  Why are two Canadians of such importance, because one is a Muslim and the other non-white?  Most likely. There is an agenda behind that.

Also of import is that the news writers and the bubble headed bleached blondes on the evening news can’t even get the most basic facts correct and rely on the ridiculous claims by the aliens involved without critical review.  Nor do they more importantly make any effort to do the most perfunctory research on the general issue of aliens refused entry to the United States.  Something that one would think from a media outlet in a border state would have made some effort in that area of policy and law just so their employees could deal with it in an intelligent manner.

First, the breathless reporting that a Canadian citizen was refused entry, and she was a Muslim!

HIGHGATE SPRINGS, Vt. - A family looking for a day trip to Burlington was held back at the Canadian border. A Muslim woman traveling with her cousin and two children came forward to multiple Canadian media outlets about her experience with the border patrol. She says she was asked her about her religion and views on President Donald Trump before being turned away.

Fadwa Alaoui told Canadian news organizations she wanted to bring her son to Burlington to go toy shopping, a fun day planned for the 5-year-old who recently finished chemotherapy. Alaoui lives just across the Canadian border in the Greater Montreal Area. She says she went to the Highgate Springs crossing and was shocked by what the border patrol officer asked her.

[Muslim Canadian Woman Turned Away At Highgate Springs Border, By Kristin Kelly and  Priscilla Liguori, WCAX, February 8, 2017]

And there is the first of several problems.  In a typical fashion, the press refers to Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPO) as a border patrol officer.  Well, strikes one and two against the Lying Press.  One would think that a reporter from a border state would know the difference between a CBPO and a Border Patrol Agent (BPA), and would know there is no such thing as a border patrol officer.  BPAs are part of the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) and CBPOs are part of the Office of Field Operations (OFO).  Both are components of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), frequently referred to by other members of the Lying Press as Customs and Border Patrol.
Moreover, it is the border with the United States, not the Highgate Springs Border.  In fact it is the Highgate Springs Port-of-Entry.  A Port-of-Entry (POE) is where aliens and goods are inspected before a decision is made as to those persons or goods are admitted to the United States.  CBPOs work at POEs and BPAs work at patrolling the exterior borders of the United States.  While a BPA may work an overtime assignment at a POE inspecting arriving aliens, it is clear that neither reporter knew this or cared.

The Lying Press cannot even get basic facts about our immigration bureaucracy correct, can you then trust them to report factually and honestly about the less mundane and more complicated aspects of immigration law enforcement correct? Obviously no.

The reporters then interview the Canadian illegal alien:

"He told me, 'You are Muslim, right?' I said, 'Yes.' He told me, 'Do you practice your religion?' I said, 'Yes.' So he asked me, 'Which mosque do you go?'" said Alaoui.
Alaoui says she was also questioned about her thoughts on President Donald Trump, to which she responded that she's uninterested. She says officers searched her phone and asked questions about her prayer videos in Arabic. After waiting four hours...
"The officer, she came and she told me we are not let you enter to the United States. I said why, why is the reason? She told me, because we find the videos and concerns against us," said Alaoui.

Note the strange ellipsis.  What did the reporters leave out in that quotation from the Alaoui? Clearly something important, probably something like “Death to America” or something similar.

Alaoui says she's a Canadian citizen with a Canadian passport. She was born in Morocco, a country that isn't included in Trump's executive order temporarily banning citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from traveling to America.

Interesting information, but hardly material the story.  Would it have been so hard to ask to see the videos in question, to ask her what the videos were about?  Could it have been chants of “Death To America?”  Could it have been videos from ISIS?  Videos from Al Queda? Videos from the Ayatollahs in Iran?  The alleged journalists working at WCAX apparently don’t know what a follow up question is.  A person who supports terrorism is subject to exclusion from the United States.  And it appears that the reporters, Kelly and Liguori, contact them here and here respectively, did not bother to ask Alaoui why she was refused entry.  CBPOs at POEs always inform the alien of why they were refused entry and are given paperwork describing the reason or reasons for the refusal.  Did not the reporters know about the paperwork?  Did the reporters file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for that paperwork if Alaoui refused to provide it?  Why didn’t the reports ask for Alaoui’s copy? Did they not care? Does the liberal media and Lying Press have an agenda that interferes with doing journalism?

Did not care, that appears to be the reason Kelly and Liguori did not delve too far into this story, as the headlines show what their concern was, a Muslim being refused entry into the United States.  Kelly and Liguori had an agenda, a JournoList like interest in pushing a particular line about Muslims and President Donald J. Trump.

Then the crack journalists at WCAX get another story about an alien refused entry to the United States from Canada.

MONTREAL - A Canadian woman taking a day trip to a Vermont spa was denied entry at the border.

Federal authorities won't confirm why, but she claims she was told she needed an "immigrant visa" to enter the United States.

The woman in this case says neither applies to her and she's still wondering why she was turned away.

"It's upsetting. It's like your being treated like a criminal and you've been singled out, even though you haven't done anything wrong," said Manpreet Kooner.

[Canadian Woman Denied Entry To Vermont, by Tyler Dumont, WCAX, March 6, 2017]

So, scare quotation marks around immigrant visa.  So what does that mean?  To the reader it implies that something about that is wrong.  And that is the reason that Dumont, contact him here, has an agenda as well.  First, Kooner wasn’t refused entry into Vermont, but into the United States.  At least get the most basic principle of immigration law correct, admission of aliens is to the United States, not a particular State. 

Then Dumont consults with a member of the Treason Bar, an immigration attorney, who gives out incomplete information, deliberately misleading the viewers.  Something that Dumont should have researched more than just consulting with one very ignorant Treason Bar shyster.

A longtime immigration attorney in Vermont says there's really only two reasons a Canadian would need an immigration visa, for work purposes or as a fiancé preparing for a wedding with a U.S. citizen.

That is just frankly wrong.  A Canadian citizen needs a visa in several situations, the most important being when the alien seeks to live in the United States, such as being sponsored for legal permanent residence by a spouse, parent, sibling, child, employer, self-sponsored, or on the diversity lottery immigrant visa.  The visa requirement is not restricted to fiancés or fiancées of American citizens or for employment.  In fact, in the most common employment category for employment of Canadians, Trade NAFTA (TN) non-immigrant visas, the actual visa is not required, but the alien in question just presents proof of legal eligibility for the visa at a POE.  Canadians until quite recently also did not need visas for H-1B visa category, but only needed to again present proof of their eligibility to enter.
But the most important aspect of this case was that the CBPO determined that Kooner was entering the United States to live and did not have a valid unexpired immigrant visa.  More simply, Kooner was coming to live in the United States illegally and got caught.  However, Dumont was either not bright enough to understand this or had an agenda he was pushing, e.g. that poor Canadians going to spas are being harassed by Donald J. Trump!

However, the importantly point is that the Lying Press either made no effort to learn the facts about entry of Canadians or their only effort was to consult an biased party, an immigration attorney, who given the political nature of the immigration bar, is not a valid source for an honest reporter.
Not to be outdone by the provincial press, the major press has the same problem, they are the Lying Press.

An Afghan family with special visas, which they earned for risking their lives working with U.S. forces in Afghanistan, was released from U.S. custody on Monday after immigration authorities arrested them at a U.S. airport and detained them for four days.

Wow, special visas.  Those must be the visas where the alien in question is exempt from inspection by a CBPO. And this is just the first mistake by Hauslohner, contact her here, as no alien, especially one with a special visa, is exempt inspection by CBP at a POE.  Not even those who worked for American forces.  It is CBP who determines if an alien is admissible.  No visa, not even a special visa, precludes inspection and admission determination by a CBPO.  The reason for this is that frequently aliens obtain visas by fraud.  This fact was of no interest to Hauslohner.

Each of the family’s five members are recipients of Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs) explicitly reserved for Afghans who helped the U.S. mission in Afghanistan. Immigration officials detained the family, including an infant and two young children, on Thursday after their arrival at Los Angeles International Airport. Authorities held them incommunicado and without access to lawyers for more than 40 hours before placing them in deportation proceedings, the family’s lawyers said Monday.

Now, as a matter of policy, CBP does not comment on specific cases, and Hauslohner makes that seem like CBP just selected this unnamed Afghan at random for harassment.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection on Monday agreed under legal pressure to release the family without charge, but provided no justification for the family’s detention. Lawyers representing the family and the International Refugee Assistance Project sought a judge’s injunction over the weekend, after the family had been detained for two days.

So, a judge illegally interfered with a custody decision and Hauslohner makes that out to be proof that CBP acted illegally.

And Hauslohner made no effort to determine the facts, but did swallow whole the claims by a Treason Bar attorney:

“The betrayal of this family by the U.S. government shocks the conscience,” the lawyers wrote.

Robert C. Blume, one of the family’s pro-bono attorneys, said Monday that none of what the U.S. government did in the case makes sense.

“So they’ve held them since Thursday on nothing,” Blume said. “And now today they’ve handed them back their visas and handed them back their passports without so much as a ‘Sorry.'”

The family was released on parole, meaning that they are still vulnerable to sudden deportation. Federal immigration authorities agreed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to process the family’s visas by April 5. Judge Josephine L. Staton also asked the government to confirm that the family does not currently pose any safety or national security threat, Blume said.

Several problems with Hauslohner’s portrayal of the facts here.

First, Hauslohner makes no effort to question the attorney as about why all this happened.  It appears that Hauslohner is not interested at all.  It is as if she has an agenda, Trump bad, Muslim immigrants good.  Hauslohner has a simplistic moral universe, and doesn’t have an inquiring mind. 

Second, the lawyer claims his clients were exonerated by the Kritarch’s order, which did not happen, and Hauslohner, who is so ignorant of immigration law, does not realize that did not happen.  All that happened was that a judge ordered the aliens released from custody, which was not within that judge’s authority, as such decisions are made by CBP in this case, as the alien is not even in removal proceedings, but was being held for immediate removal.

Thirdly, Hauslohner then states the aliens were released on parole.  Which is not an exoneration, or did they receive their passports or visas back.  Strangely, Hauslohner emphasizes that the Kritarch Josephine Staton, wanted CBP to confirm that the aliens were not a threat, as if that is the only reason that aliens are refused entry to the United States.  The aliens in question could have been refused entry based on fraud, such as not really having served the government.  Visa fraud does happen, and quite frequently in Afghanistan. Afghanistan has a 67% visa refusal rate, mostly due to fraud and lies from applicants.  Apparently Hauslohner does not do research regarding her stories, she just talks to lawyers representing aliens, and takes their work for everything.

And in another JournoList fail, Hauslohner again ignored the legal issues and facts in a similar case of a second Afghan who fraudulently obtained a visa:

Foydel said immigration authorities had held the 25-year-old for nearly 36 hours without providing access to a lawyer, during which time the government says he voluntarily withdrew his application for entry to the United States. The U.S. State Department revoked his visa, at the request of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Tuesday night, she said.
[Federal Court Blocks Deportation Of Afghan Special Visa Recipient, by Abigail Hauslohner, WaPo, March 15, 2017]

Note how she emphasizes the fact that the alien in question did not have access to a lawyer. If Hauslohner had any knowledge of immigration law she would know that aliens applying for admission do not have a right to representation when applying for admission.  Interestingly, the access to lawyers during inspection is again in the news, repeatedly emphasized by Hauslohner in both stories.  This issue is part of an ongoing campaign by the Treason Bar to gain access to the inspection of arriving aliens and consequently the press is emphasizing this theme as if they were responding to instructions or agreement like what JournoList was doing.

And there is a hint at what the fraud was, something that Hauslohner ignores:

Foydel said it is difficult to say whether her client “fully understood the implications of what he was doing” when he agreed under questioning to relinquish his visa.
And Marion Goins Leon, a former soldier and contractor with the U.S. military who had worked with the man in Afghanistan, said the man’s English is limited enough that “if you talk to him too fast, he doesn’t understand.”

So, we have interpreters who don’t understand English?  That seems like fraud to me.
And there is supposed to be a fear of persecution:

Successful applicants for the special visas must show that they have experienced or are experiencing “an ongoing serious threat” due to their employment with the U.S. government…”

And he admitted he had no fear:

The government’s argument appeared to hinge on the fact that man no longer had a valid visa — because it was revoked — and that, under questioning from border officials, he “explicitly stated that he has no fear of returning to Afghanistan; and (2) voluntarily withdrew his application for admission to the United States…”

There is a spectre haunting immigration policy, it is the spectre of a campaign by the Lying Press to influence not only immigration policy in general, but in specific cases.  The press lies by omission, it lies by being deliberately ignorant, and it lies by consulting only interested parties.  This is how democracy dies, by the Lying Press.

Cultural Marxists Seeking To Impose DACA On The Nation

In a half-assed fashion, it appears that President Trump will end the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the illegal and unconstitutional amnesty for a certain group of illegal aliens in the United States.  There will apparently be a six month delay before the illegal amnesty ends. Supposedly this is for a legislative solution, perhaps including a wall, reduction in legal immigration, and E-Verify.  That has been rejected out of hand by the Cultural Marxists, as they know the RINOs like Paul Ryan will cave to any of their demands.

President Donald Trump is strongly considering a plan that would end the Obama-era program that shields young unauthorized immigrants from deportation, but only after giving Congress six months to come up with a potential replacement for the popular initiative, according to three administration officials briefed on the discussions.
Officials working on the plan stressed that Trump could still change his mind, and some key details had not yet been resolved. Among them: whether beneficiaries of the program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, would be allowed to renew their protected status during the six-month period.
The compromise, which could lead to legislation superseding President Barack Obama’s executive order, is intended to address a growing chorus of Republican lawmakers, led by the House speaker, Paul D. Ryan, who have implored the White House to keep some form of the program.
[Trump Considers Ending The ‘Dreamers’ Program, With A 6-Month Delay, Reports Say, By Maggie Haberman And Glenn Thrush, NYT, September 04, 2017]

Furthermore, apparent tranny RINO Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who voted for Hillary Clinton and supports Obamacare, went ballistic, claiming these illegal aliens should be protected.

Morbidly Obese Goblin Cuban Communist Tranny Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Truly, evil is reflected in her horrid visage.

Not A Tranny RINO Goblin, Just a Goblin, But Amost As Evil As Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

And, as predicted, the Cultural Marxists are moving on the legal front, as I warned repeatedly and very recently, the goblins are moving to impose DACA through the Kritarchs. [Kritarchs, State And Federal, Moving Again To Take Over Immigration Enforcement, by Federale, Federale Blog, August 26, 2017]  As Robert Bork described, this is the ratchet effect, once something is done, it becomes a constitutional right, regardless of what the Constitution says.  In this case, Cultural Marxists from the several States are now declaring that DACA is a right held by certain illegal aliens, but apparently not others, to remain in the United States.  And once that is in effect, all the other illegal aliens will get the same right to remain.  This is the plan, an imposition of amnesty by Kritarchs.

New York and Washington state on Monday vowed to sue President Donald Trump if he scraps a program shielding from deportation immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children...
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in a joint statement with the state's attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, said "the president's action would upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people who have only ever called America their home."
In a separate statement, the attorney general of Washington state, Bob Ferguson, also threatened legal action. "I will use all the legal tools at my disposal to defend the thousands of Dreamers in Washington state," he said in a statement.
Ferguson and Schneiderman were among 20 attorneys general who wrote to Trump in July to tell him that if he ended the program, they would defend it "by all appropriate means."
[New York Vows To Sue Trump Over Immigrant Children Protections, By David Shepardson, Reuters/Yahoo, September 4, 2017]

Now, DACA is, allegedly, a program where a Federal law enforcement agency, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), decided to exercise its prosecutorial discretion and developed an enforcement strategy whereby certain groups of criminals were not only given low priorities for arrest and deportation, but to effectively immunize them from arrest, barring only criminal or terrorist activities in the future.  Additionally, another Federal law enforcement agency, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), decided exercise its discretion and to give those aliens employment authorization.  Both act were illegal, especially the employment authorization. But in the end, the actions were discretionary and unreviewable by a court.

Now the major problem is that only a certain group of illegal aliens were given those benefits.  Other groups of illegal aliens were denied access to this benefit of prosecutorial discretion and employment authorization.  Clearly this is a equality before the law issue, but the solution was that the exercise of prosecutorial discretion and employment authorization was illegal, not that additional aliens were eligible.

Furthermore, both the baseless exercise of non-feasance, what DACA really was, an Administrative Amnesty, and the employment authorization were not authorized by law and a usurpation of the authority over immigration granted by the Constitution to Congress in Article I, Section 8, Clause 4. Correspondingly, there is no basis, much less legal standing to litigate the case, for the States to claim that an exercise of prosecutorial discretion by the Executive Branch becomes in any manner or substance a right to be exercised by a State on behalf of an individual, in this case an alien subject to deportation, is ridiculous.  What the States will have to claim is that a State may serve as the Federal government in making deportation decisions.  So much for separation of powers, which just a few short years ago, New York and Washington were arguing that the Federal government was supreme in the Arizona v. United States case over Arizona's Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, which authorized State enforcement of immigration laws.  Now the Cultural Marxists are arguing that States have primary authority over immigration.
