Sanctuary Cities Criminalized in Texas

The rule of law is celebrating a HUGE win in Texas, where conservatives defeated liberals with SB4 in the House, easily passing a bill to uphold immigration law and  criminalize sanctuary cities.

     The Texas House of Representatives has approved a strict ban on “sanctuary cities,” seeking to empower police to enforce federal immigration law against anyone they detain and threatening to jail police chiefs and sheriffs who refuse to do so.

Today’s 93-54 vote followed nearly 16 hours of emotional debate, much of it from outnumbered Democrats powerless to stop the bill.

Democrats relied on emotional pleas, name calling and unhinged rants during the 16 hours of debate, consistently short on facts and high on vitriol as they attempted to support the indefensible- shielding from deportation illegal aliens who have invaded the country, forged identification and work documents, committed tax fraud, overwhelmed schools, emergency rooms, prisons and public services at taxpayer expense, and even those illegals who have assaulted, raped, molested and murdered US citizens.

The liberals demonstrated no concern for the assaults, rapes and murders perpetrated by illegal aliens as a direct result of sanctuary cities criminally obstructing federal immigration laws.

Instead, they lied, like Rep Alonso who said SB4 was about the Mexican Boogeyman.  Or Rep Anchia, who called it “modern discrimination”.  Or Rep Gonzalez, who said “you’re protecting the rapists” when in fact democrats are protecting rapists, murderers, child abusers, drug dealers, gang members, identity thieves, and tens of thousands of other criminal illegals who should be deported immediately after serving jail sentences, but who are instead released into our communities to commit additional crimes against US citizens.

Under SB4, for which the Senate has passed a similar bill, the state will be able to withhold funding from local governments for acting as sanctuary cities, and to jail police, sheriffs and other appointed and elected officials who obstruct the rule of law.

Winning!

Update May 7th,2017- SB4 is now the law in Texas, signed by the governor.  All prisons must honor ICE detainer requests on illegal aliens, and Police Chiefs, Sheriffs and political officials who interfere or attempt to obstruct US immigration law may be fined, imprisoned and removed from office.

Most Americans Oppose Sanctuary Cities

Contrary to the fake news spewed by liberals at MSNBC, CNN, the Huffington Post, Vox, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the rest of the failing old media, American citizens overwhelmingly support deporting illegal alien criminals.  

In fact, according to a recent Harvard/Harris poll, 80% of Americans agree with President Trump’s stance on sanctuary cities!

An overwhelming majority of Americans believe that cities that arrest illegal immigrants for crimes should be required to turn them over to federal authorities.

The poll shows that President Trump has broad public support in his effort to crack down on sanctuary cities.

A survey from Harvard–Harris Poll provided exclusively to The Hill found that 80 percent of voters say local authorities should have to comply with the law by reporting to federal agents the illegal immigrants they come into contact with.

Trump Lied about Border Wall Funding

President Trump has caved to open-borders Democrats, just like spineless Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the GOP, by failing to demand funding for the border wall the election was won on.

WASHINGTON — President Trump insisted on Tuesday that he remained committed to his hotly disputed plan to build a wall along the Mexican border, despite backing off a demand that the project be funded in a short-term spending measure that must be passed by Friday to avoid a government shutdown.

Trump had previously stated he would require Congress to provide a measely $1.4 billion in this must-pass funding measure for border wall maintenance and improvements, potentially giving Liberal Democrats $7 billion in unconstitutional Obamacare subsidies in exchange.  Now it appears he not only withdrew his small request for the wall, but is also going to give Democrats that money in exchange for… Nothing!

No consessions will be asked of Democrats as Trump rolls over for them, right along with the rest of our utterly useless Republican House and Senate, who will fully fund every alt-left progressive special interest project while ignoring the voters who placed the GOP in charge of all aspects of the federal government.

Shame on you, Mr Trump.  American citizens already despise the do-nothing Congress which has consistently failed to even pass the 12 annual appropriations bills as required by law.  Now Trump will join them in betraying the voters as they spend hundreds of billions of dollars the United States doesn’t have (adding to $20 TRILLION of national debt) to fund liberal interests while neglecting national security.

Liberals Protest Criminals Being Arrested

The United States of America currently welcomes more immigrants than any other country on earth, over 1.1 million per year, in addition to granting 700,000 temporary work permits, and 500,000 student visas annually, despite the fact that American citizens need the jobs that immigrants are filling.

Liberals aren’t satisfied with that.  In fact, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 160 criminal illegal aliens around the country this week, liberals protested.  There were more liberals protesting in New York City Friday night than the number of illegal aliens with criminal records who were arrested all week long.  It is unclear how many protestors took part in demonstrations in LA Thursday evening.

There are 25 million Black, White, Red, Brown and Yellow U.S. citizens who are either unemployed or underemployed, and a major reason for that is illegal immigration.  Sadly, lower wages and unemployment are not the worst that illegal aliens bring to our country.  “David Marin, ICE’s field director in the Los Angeles area, said in a conference call with reporters Friday that 75 percent of the approximately 160 people detained in the operation this week had felony convictions” according to the Washington Post.  The felonies included sex offenses, robberies, assaults, and weapons charges, among others, per the LA Times.

People who shouldn’t even be in the country have created victims of our citizens.  Yet liberals protested these arrests, expressing their disapproval for the rule of law.

The New York Times predictably ran a sob-story all about the aliens’ fear of being caught by President Trump’s “deportation force,” completely ignoring the victims of illegal alien crime, or the fact that being in the country illegally is itself a crime, and that the lawful consequence for such offense is deportation.  The Times starts their piece with this:

“In Austin, Tex., undocumented women working in a laundromat cowered in the back of the room, petrified after seeing a video and a photograph of apprehensions outside a local grocery store and burger joint.”

Are these women being paid under the table while illegally working at that laundromat, and did the women later mentioned hitching a ride home from restaurant work use stolen social security cards and fake ID’s to secure their jobs?  Those are felonies, for which American citizens would go to jail, but for which the New York Times and the protesters feel deportation is unjust.  Heck, they don’t even want murders and rapists being deported.

What is wrong with these people, who do their best to undermine the rule of law and reward those who victimize American citizens?

 

Mexicans Caught Voting Illegally

Who says there’s no voter fraud?  Oh, that’s right, Barack Hussein Obama spewed that nonsense all through the past 8 years, and repeated the blatant lie just last month.  Well, Barry, two Mexican nationals have been caught illeglly voting, proving yet again that voter fraud is real, and that it isn’t just committed by U.S. democrats.

Rosa Ortega, a Mexican national living in Texas, was just sentenced to 8 years in prison and a $5,000 fine for her illegal voting, after which she will likely be deported.  The article explains that  “when Ortega tried to register to vote in Tarrant County, she admitted she was not a citizen, so her application was rejected. When she told them she had already been voting in Dallas County, that’s when investigators started looking into her case.”

In the second case, an illegal alien from Mexico who voted in 2012, 2014 and 2016 is facing up to 70 years on more than a handful of federal charges in Illinois.  He admitted that he is an illegal alien, and that he committed identity theft by using an ID he bought for $50,000 to impersonate a U.S. citizen without their knowledge.  “Valencia-Sandoval, who lives in the 0-to-100 block of Ivanhoe Drive, also admitted that he did not have Ramiro Guerrero-Vasquez’s permission to use his identity; had used the identity to live in Illinois since March 2005; had obtained driver’s licenses, bank accounts and loans for vehicles; had opened two restaurants that have since been sold; and had obtained a lawful permanent resident card for his wife.”

That’s right, he used the fraudulently obtained ID of a U.S. citizen to apply for a resident card for his wife, an alien as well since she needed the permit.  Her criminally obtained residency card will no doubt be immediately revoked and  confiscated, and both should be deported after serving appropriate prison sentences .

Senator Sessions, Attorney General

Senator Jeff Sessions has been confirmed as America’s next Attorney General.

Unlike Holder and Lynch, Jeff Sessions will uphold the rule of law.  The DOJ will no longer be a political arm of the left-wing liberals, nor will it continue to undermine ICE and the Border Patrol.  It will stop ignoring hate crimes and knockout game victims, and start treating all Americans equally under the law.  The farce known as “disparate impact” will be left in the dustbin of history where it has belonged since a muddle-minded liberal invented the fake statistical correlation between reality and fantasy.

For the first time in over 8 years, American citizens will have an Attorney General who puts America first, and who abides by the Constitution rather than attempting to shred it, rewrite it, or simply ignore it.

Congratulations, AG Sessions!

Arrest Senator & Deport Illegal Alien Family

A California state senator has brazenly admitted that half of his family members living in the United States are illegal aliens, and that they have committed felonies by either fraudulently securing or counterfeiting driver’s licenses, green cards, social security numbers or other forms of government issued identification.

Testifying before the Senate Public Safety Committee  about legislation to make the entire state of California a “sanctuary state,” in direct defiance of United States federal immigration laws,  Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D) condoned violating civil and criminal laws, showing no regard for his oath of office nor for taxpaying American citizens whose identities are stolen and whose taxes are being spent on benefits for criminal illegal aliens.

“I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under the executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60… if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented, knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification,” proclaimed De Léon.  “That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.”

De Léon’s illegal alien family members cannot be allowed to remain in the country and be rewarded for their publicly acknowledged crimes.  They should be deported as soon as possible, setting an example with expedited hearings and removals, and Senator De Léon should be arrested and charged as an accomplice after-the-fact for the felony of fraudulently securing or forging government identitfication.

In addition, he should be charged for violating federal immigration law, several subsections of which may apply:

Domestic Transporting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.

Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.

Encouraging/Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.

Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

De Léon is likely counting on public status and notoriety to shield him and his family from any consequences for their crimes.  The rule of law applies to all, however, and they must bear responsibility for their actions.   Deportation and jail sentences are in order.

97 Companies Oppose Congress

Sadly, 97 companies submitted an amicus brief to the infamously liberal 9th circuit court yesterday, stating their opposition to President Trump’s authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.  Trump is simply exercising the power Congress granted him, and thus, these misguided companies are showing their opposition to Congress and the rule of law.

The law was passed by a Democratic-majority House and Senate, and specifically authorizes the President of the United States to bar immigrants from any country, regardless of race or religion, if he believes they represent a threat to the United States.

“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. ”

Per US Code Executive Order is Perfectly Legal

Seattle Judge Robart has proven himself to be yet another judicial activist, living out his “social justice warrior” dreams by erroneously granting a TRO (temporary restraining order) in response to the state of Washington’s request, thereby placing a brief hold on President Trump’s lawful executive order on travel from seven hotbeads of terrorism.

President Trump put a temporary 90-day suspension of all citizens from 7 Middle Eastern and African countries from entering the United States. These are countries that the Obama administration identified as breeding grounds of terrorism . The “Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015” named Iraq, Iran, Sudan, and Syria, while its 2016 update added Libya, Somalia, and Yemen.

Title 8 U.S. Code § 1182 was passed in 1952 by a Democratic-majority House and Senate, and specifically authorizes the President of the United States to bar immigrants from any country, regardless of race or religion, if he believes they represent a threat to the United States.

“Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President- Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. ”

President Trump’s executive order is within his authority and perfectly legal under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.

A prominent lawyer who disagrees with Trump on policy has written a fair critique on the judges from Boston and Seattle who faced essentially the same case- requests to block Trump’s executive order:

“Just a quick review of the two written orders can tell you which one is likely to win. The Boston judge cited a wide range of precedents for his decision in his detailed written order. The Seattle judge issued a short order devoid of almost any reference to any precedent, which is the “evidence” for lawyers on the law. Add in comments made by the Seattle judge verbally, and if any aspect of that is correct, the Seattle judge’s opinion will lose, and Trump’s position will win.”

Judge Robart of Seattle is wrong, had no legal basis to grant the TRO, and Trump’s executive order will stand in the end.  This case once again demonstrates the need to remove activist judges from any political party who attempt to legislate from the bench rather than actually doing their jobs, which is interpreting the law and not re-writing it.

** Update 02/06/2017 **   The Washington Examiner has published an excellent piece detailing the faults in the Washington case, Robart’s blatant errors, and a review of the DOJ’s brief that destroys any arguement against the Constitutionality or legality of President Trump’s executive order.  Definitely worth the read.

Next Executive Orders?

According to the Washington Post, President Trump will apparently continue his diligent work protecting American taxpayers by signing executive orders that:

  1. Direct immigration officials at CIS to uphold existing US law which prevents the immigration of public charges, by denying likely applicants, and,
  2. Direct ICE to deport immigrants who (within 10 years if relative to financial sponsorship timeframes) become public charges that are dependent on taxpayer-funded welfare benefits contrary to US law, and,
  3. Significantly limit the number of immigrant and temporary work visas issued, again with the focus of minimizing the use of taxpayer-funded benefits by non-citizens.

Current US law:

INA: ACT 212 – GENERAL CLASSES OF ALIENS INELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE VISAS AND INELIGIBLE FOR ADMISSION; WAIVERS OF INADMISSIBILLITY

Sec. 212. [8 U.S.C. 1182]

(a) Classes of Aliens Ineligible for Visas or Admission.-Except as otherwise provided in this Act, aliens who are inadmissible under the following paragraphs are ineligible to receive visas and ineligible to be admitted to the United States:

4) Public charge.-

(A) In general.-Any alien who, in the opinion of the consular officer at the time of application for a visa, or in the opinion of the Attorney General at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible.

(An affidavit of support is required for immigrants who claim a family relationship to a US citizen, meaning a citizen must sponsor them, pledging to financially support them if necessary, and reimburse any taxpayer-funded benefits the immigrant may use.  The sponsor is responsible financially for 10 years or until the immigrant leaves the country or becomes a citizen).
