DACA Thoughts

Posted by V the K at 2:25 pm - September 6, 2017.

First thought,  isn’t it odd how the Republicans in Congress can completely renege on seven years of promises to repeal Obamacare, do absolutely nothing about border security, dawdle over tax reform… but it when it comes to giving Amnesty to illegal immigrants undocumented Democrat voters, they snap right to it and get to work.

Second, if illegal immigrants brought to the US as minors cannot be held responsible for the actions of their parents, why does the left want to hold me personally responsible for slavery… which happened two hundred years ago… under people I’m not even related to?

I think most of us are wise that DACA is just phase one of their 3 part Amnesty plan. First the “children” (even though the median age of a person in DACA is 26) get Amnesty, then the parents, then all the other illegal immigrants.

We may as well note the Arpaio thing

To me, it’s a yawner, sorry. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a patriot. He tried to enforce existing border law. He stepped on some judge’s order and was then targeted for prosecution by the Obama administration. He was found guilty, under the letter of the law. The Constitution lets the President pardon people. Some lefties are calling it the end of the Constitution, that President Trump would have pardoned Arpaio; but it’s the usual misleading hyperbole. In reality, the whole thing from start to finish is an exercise of the Constitution.

Here’s video of former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (a clean government guy) making the point (among others) that President Obama pardoned or commuted the sentences of 1700 people, from drug dealers to forgers to the traitorous Chelsea Manning.

UPDATE: Who can forget Bill Clinton’s pardon of Marc Rich? By any objective standard, Arpaio deserves his pardon more than Rich or Manning.

Which is what makes it so boring. The Left gins up non-controversy #1,388,544,877 over a pardon as reasonable/constitutional as any.

UPDATE: Our intrepid commenters point out other matters where Arpaio might deserve prosecution. I could be fine with that. Operative word, “other”.

In this post, I’m discussing the one contempt-of-court charge. I assumed that Trump’s pardon was tailored to that. I looked for the actual text of the pardon and didn’t find it. But I think it would have to be (since conviction comes before pardon).

If anyone didn’t know: Human trafficking is a thing

In the olden days, it was slavery. Today, it often takes the form of women or children being bought or sold for sexual purposes. In this particular instance, it’s the smuggling of illegal workers:

The death toll in what police called a horrific human trafficking case — eight men died inside a sweltering 18-wheeler parked outside a San Antonio Walmart — reached nine on Sunday…

A total of 39 people had been inside the tractor-trailer, including at least four teenagers, Fox 29 reported. Twenty people were taken to area hospitals in critical condition…

A store employee first alerted police after being approached by someone from the truck who was asking for water. The vehicle did not have a working air conditioning system…

The origin of the truck is still unknown. Investigators gathered evidence from the truck on Sunday, which had an Iowa license plate but no other markings.

Thomas Homan, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director, said in a statement: “By any standard, the horrific crime uncovered last night ranks as a stark reminder of why human smuggling networks must be pursued, caught and punished.”

U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin, Jr. also called Sunday morning’s incident “an alien smuggling venture gone horribly wrong.”

“All were victims of ruthless human smugglers indifferent to the well-being of their fragile cargo,” Durbin said, adding that the Justice Department will be working with Homeland Security and local responders in the investigation…

Needless to say: Crime is crime. I know that we’re all 100% in favor of law enforcement cracking down on this and punishing whoever is responsible.

Hey Trump-haters: Did it ever occur to you that this is a reason (one of many) why we should want good border control?

The Violent and Deadly Consequences of Leftist Virtue Signaling

A New Hampshire prosecutor dropped domestic violence charges against an African immigrant on the basis of “cultural incompetence;” i.e. since the immigrant didn’t realize wife-beating was against the law in the United States, he shouldn’t be prosecuted for it.

BTW, “cultural incompetence” is not a defense under New Hampshire law.

Of a piece with this: A Mohammedan who threw a baby to its death from a high-rise in Chicago got probation.

In Democrat-run jurisdictions, it’s become standard procedure to reduce or dismiss charges against immigrants, both legal and illegal, so that they avoid deportation. Because the Democrat Party is full-on Open Borders now. Hillary Clinton ran on a “No Deportations” platform.

By the way, a three-times deported illegal immigrant killed a father of three while drunk-driving.

Immigrants… illegal and otherwise… are becoming a privileged caste in American society; largely exempted from the laws American citizens are held to.

Democrat Leftists would rather have criminal illegal immigrants in their neighborhoods than a Chik-Fil-A.

Are Trump’s Joe/Mika tweets strategic?

Donald Trump is a genius at branding people. I still think that his tweets about Joe and Mika are un-presidential and unhelpful. But I have to admit: From now on, whenever I see Joe and Mika’s faces, I will remember that they’re vain people who have had work done (or at least she has), and that the POTUS shares my view that the two of them say and do some pretty ridiculous things.

There’s also a notion making the rounds that President Trump may have created the controversy for strategic reasons.

…the President couldn’t care less about Mika’s face or ‘Morning Joe’s’ ratings. The sole motive behind the attack was to distract the media from reporting on the travel ban and ‘Kate’s Law’ passing the House. The ‘Muslim Ban,’ as the MSM has coined it, is the most controversial law Trump will likely put into effect during his Presidency.

As Joseph Curl, former Drudge Report editor and Daily Wire writer tweeted… “For those who don’t think Trump is the Master Tweeter, the travel ban is in place and everyone’s talking about — Mika and Joe. Well played.”

I get the point being made. But I don’t quite buy it.

I mean, so what if we talk about the President’s temporary travel ban on 6 countries where the citizens are unusually prone to terrorism – AND have unusually poor documentation (poor proof of identity)? Or if we talk about a new law that cracks down on criminals entering the U.S. illegally?

They’re both good things. Why not let the media talk about them? The more they’re talked about, or the more Antifa is out protesting them: the more Trump’s own stock goes up. He improves his brand among the Silent Majority.

The SCOTUS travel ban decision last week was especially cool. 9-0, baby! It wasn’t a perfect decision; but heck, they had to get Ruth Bader Ginsberg on board. And they did, thus slapping down some real nonsense from the lower courts.

So, my view is that Trump would have been better off letting the media focus on the travel decision, on Kate’s law, or even on Trumprussia – which is increasingly being recognized as Fake News (so that talking about it actually hurts Democrats now). No need for all this Twitter strategery.

As always, feel free to disagree or to express your thoughts, in the comments.

UPDATE: Overnight, Trump got his tweets on, including his re-tweeting a parody video of him punching down CNN. 🙂

UPDATE: CNN’s answer is… a high-brow form of whining to Mommy. In measured tones, they play the victim. Poor dears. There goes what was left of their glamour.

UPDATE: Scott Adams argues that it’s all a big trap for CNN. In particular, CNN must cover – that is, re-broadcast – the parody “CNN smackdown” video. It’s like forcing CNN to advertise their own position of weakness.

San Francisco Awards Almost $200,000 to Illegal Immigrant Because Police Followed Federal Law

Posted by V the K at 10:13 am - June 30, 2017.

This is the political culture that produced Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris. It also gave us Donald Trump.

A man from El Salvador in the U.S. illegally who sued San Francisco after police turned him over to immigration authorities in violation of the city’s sanctuary law is set to be awarded $190,000, his attorney said Thursday.

Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, 33, reached the settlement agreement with the city attorney’s office, said Saira Hussain, a staff attorney at the Asian Law Caucus who represented Zarceno.

BTW, the Republican Majority House of Representatives yesterday passed legislation that would slightly reduce taxpayer subsidies to Democrat-Controlled Urban Zones (Sanctuary Cities) that violate Federal Immigration law.

Flashback – guess who said it?

And on National TV, no less.

The jobs they [“illegal aliens”] hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. It is wrong, and ultimately self-defeating, for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.

PDT Rounds Up DREAMERs in Californezuela

Oh Noes, more Tyrannies!!!111!!!

At least 44 high-ranking members of the notorious MS-13 gang face federal charges after they were rounded up and arrested in Los Angeles pre-dawn police raids.

Hundreds of federal and local law enforcement officers fanned out across the city early Wednesday morning and stormed homes and storefronts to nab leaders of the Mara Salvatrucha gang.

Authorities – headed by the FBI – arrested 21 people at more than 40 locations on various charges, including narcotics trafficking and other violent crimes. Many of them were illegal immigrants.

Three alleged MS-13 gangsters were charged in the racketeering indictment for murders they committed in connection with the gang’s activities.

Illegal immigrants? You don’t say. In other words, the people rounded up are the people the California State Government wants to provide with free legal assistance, college tuition, and neck massages.

I mean, heaven forfend that these wonderful people should face deportation for such niggling offenses as drug trafficking,  DUI’s, sex trafficking, armed robbery, assault, murder or those other robust benefits of an open borders/Sanctuary state.

I note these raids happened after three years of dithering under the Obama Administration.

Pot, Kettle, Black

House Minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, says that Trump “talking about this [border] wall is expressing a sign of weakness.”

Umm…isn’t Pelosi showing weakness, by not retiring?

(I’m thinking of the mental weakness or illogic that she displays, as she talks on these issues. Also the spiritual weakness that keeps her clinging to power, rather than letting go and trying something new at age 77.)

Now we know what Trump is

A lot has happened in the last few weeks, to let us know what kind of president Trump is going to be.

He isn’t the new Hitler. And he isn’t the new Ronald Reagan. He’s Obama-Lite, or roughly what President Obama would have been if were saner and more authentically masculine and pro-American. (Like Obama, President Trump often talks about his own good intentions/hopes as if they were accomplishments.
They aren’t.) “The Swamp” and/or Deep State will stay in business for quite awhile yet. I suspect that Trump has cut some sort of deal with several of its important factions.

That still makes him 100 times better than Hillary.

Hillary would have done none of the above. On his own, Trump is not all that hot. But when compared to Hillary, he still is.

Omar Mateen’s Day Job

Posted by V the K at 11:09 am - June 13, 2016.
Filed under: Illegal Immigration

Little remarked in the discussion about Muslim Democrat Terrorist Omar Mateen is his job as a security guard with G4S — the “security” company the Obama Administration has contracted with to pick up illegal immigrants detained at the border and then release them in the country’s interior.

 Judicial Watch is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security is transporting and then releasing illegal aliens from Central America without giving them any notification of a court date nor making any effort to keep track of them. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents, Border Patrol sources tell Judicial Watch. The government classifies them as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and this week around 35 were transferred 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate ways.

Doesn’t that make you feel safe?

 

 

Obama Admin. Helps Illegal Immigrants Steal Jobs from American Workers

Posted by V the K at 5:25 pm - January 4, 2016.
Filed under: Illegal Immigration

The Obama Administration “Justice” Department has issued new “guidelines” for employers, warning them that if they try to determine if an employee is an illegal immigrant stealing a job from an American, they’ll be in big trouble.

According to the guidelines, while tips could lead to uncovering an unauthorized employee, leads “should not always be presumed to be credible.”

The agencies say, in the case of an internal audit, employers shouldn’t request an employee’s documentation just because photocopies of documents are unclear. It also states unless a federal contractor has an E-Verify clause in its contract, it shouldn’t use the system created to check on a potential employee’s employment eligibility for existing workers.

In addition, it also says an employer is not allowed to ask for specific documents from its employees.

Even if a company finds information was falsified by a worker in the past, if new, valid information is provided, it is not required the employee be laid off.

Companies are also advised against using the Social Security Number Verification Service while conducting an audit.

So, the message to an employer is.

1. Don’t investigate if an employee gives you fraudulent documents.

2. Don’t use e-Verify.

3. Don’t verify social security numbers.

Got it.

Oh, also, the Obama Regime is doing away with the requirement that people who want jobs as air traffic controllers pass a “Basic Competency Test.”  They have been replaced … I am not making this up … with take home personality tests not unlike those Facebook quizzes you would take to find out “What Disney Princess Are You?” This is so they can hire more incompetent minorities as Air Traffic Controllers.

A world run by lunatics.

The Left’s playbook explained

It’s well-understood that the Left in America (indeed, the West in general) prefers to silence rather than to engage their political or intellectual counterparts. From speech codes to shutting down pizza shops that don’t hew to their ideology to barring campus speakers who don’t Think Properly (let alone the things they say!).

So it’s no surprise to anybody that, rather than challenging Donald Trump’s position on immigration, groups like Deport Racism are calling on audience members at this week’s upcoming NBC broadcast of SNL to disrupt the production and shout things at the Republican candidate. And no less a group than the Congressional Hispanic Caucus has asked NBC to simply not even have him on the show.

It’s a meme about the Left that they will have no truck with any sort of dissent to the end that any other opinions are verboten from conception; a meme as ubiquitous as its examples, and as exasperating to have to point out as the question, “Can you imagine if a Republican had said that?!”

But it’s not often that you can see on display the next stinky layer of the onion right in the same place. This is the video that the same group, Deport Racism has produced as there, um, rejoinder?

Indoctrinated foul-mouthed children yelling dirty words at a grown man, while surely ‘cute’ to many members of the Left’s base, also go a long way to explaining why shutting down opposing thoughts is the weapon of choice for Progressives:

They’re not very good at making arguments.

The Left Claims There Are No Such Things as ‘Anchor Babies’

Posted by V the K at 1:06 pm - August 23, 2015.
Filed under: Illegal Immigration

The left has attacked the notion that illegal immigrants cross the border in order to have children that, as American citizens, are entitled to welfare and serve as anchors to bring in their relatives from other countries, as absurd; a myth the “Right-Wing” made up to bash immigrants.

This news report from March says otherwise
.

Southern California apartment complexes that doubled as “maternity hotels” for Chinese women who want made-in-America babies were raided early Tuesday, capping an unprecedented federal sting operation, officials said.

All told, the feds raided 20 locations in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties, targeting three competing birth tourism schemes, officials said. The suspected operators have not been charged but are being questioned.

The organizers who allegedly ran the Carlyle site, Chao Chen and Dong Li, used a website to drum up business, touting the benefits of a child with U.S. citizenship: 13 years of free education, low-cost college financial aid, less pollution, and a path for the entire family to emigrate when the child becomes an adult.

MSDNC/Republican Establishment Baffled by Americans’ Concern for Their Economic Well-Being

Republican Governor and GOP candidate Scott Walker recently said that our entire immigration system, legal and illegal, needs to be overhauled and that even legal immigration may need to be reduced because the influx of cheap foreign labor is hurting the American middle class.

“In terms of legal immigration, how we need to approach that going forward is saying – the next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal immigration system that’s based on, first and foremost, on protecting American workers and American wages,” Walker said Monday in an interview with Glenn Beck. “It is a fundamentally lost issue by many in elected positions today – what is this doing for American workers looking for jobs, what is this doing to wages, and we need to have that be at the forefront of our discussion going forward.”

MSDNC quickly jumped in to denounce this “hardline” position. John McCain and Orrin Hatch … very old and wealthy men who never need to worry about anyone in their families losing out on a job or an educational opportunity to an illegal immigrant… denounced the “hardline” radical position of favoring Americans over illegal immigrants. Voters who have actual skin in the game tend to see the issue differently.

There are over 42 million immigrants in the USA. Legal and immigration add nearly 2 million more people per year. That’s adding a city larger than Dallas to the American landscape each year; with the attendant demands on resources, infrastructure and services. This is on top of an economy that is stagnant at best. Like everything else the political class supports, this is an unsustainable situation unless turning the USA into a Third World country is the actual goal.

And the politicians remained baffled why no one trusts them with “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” One clue might be that in 2006, Congress passed and President Bush signed a law requiring them to build a fence and secure the border. The law was gutted the very next year and only 37 out of 900 miles of actual fence was actually built. And they profess to be baffled that the public does not trust them to follow the next border security law they pass.

Donald Trump’s reforms would end “birthright citizen,” the notion that a person in the country illegally can still claim welfare and other benefits by dint of giving birth on American soil. There is no reason being born in the USA should automatically entitle one to citizenship, unless such citizenship means nothing. Which is how Obama, Jeb, Hillary, McCain and anyone else who would hand out citizenship at the border like it was a library card treats it. These politicians find it hateful and “rayciss” that some citizens actually want to save what’s left of the American culture and the American standard of living.

California is already well on its way to third world status; with a disappearing middle class, a swath of extreme wealth along the coast, a growing impoverished underclass, and a permanently embedded one-party government. This is the endgame of unrestricted immigration.

I sure hope none of those smug leftists who were so overjoyed when gay marriage was imposed by the whims of activist judges have any problem with Obama’s Amnesty being struck down by a Constitution-minded judge.

Despite what idiot leftists will claim, what Judge Hanen did is not “judicial activism,” since he did what judges are supposed to do and followed the letter of the law; which Obama did not. Real judicial activism involves making up law from the bench and imposing it against the will of the people; which is how most of the radical left’s agenda has been enforced.

Some News Items for your consideration

The Contempt of the Gentry Class

To Barack Obama, illegal immigrants are fruit-pickers and bedpan washers. To John McCain, they’re lettuce-pickers. To Hillary Clinton, illegal immigrants are busboys and dishwashers. To Karl Rove, they are the people who pick tomatoes and  make up beds so his kids won’t have to.

But it’s not just illegal immigrants they see as menial laborers; beneath the high stations they have gotten for themselves. Think about this; all of these people — and most of the economic and political “Elite” in the United States — would like to hand out American citizenship like library cards to anyone who crossed the border. It means nothing to them. They don’t hold American citizenship in much esteem because they don’t hold American citizens in much esteem, as the remarks of Mr. Jonathan Gruber have revealed.

They know that importing millions of unit of cheap foreign labor will negatively impact the wages of American workers. They don’t care, and they lie about it,  “If you like your middle class lifestyle, you can keep your middle class lifestyle,” they reassure us. The elite don’t care because they don’t see illegal immigrant labor affecting them or their class in any negative way. They see no difference between illegal immigrants and working class Americans — except, in the words of an aide to Senator Marco Rubio. “American workers can’t cut it.” To the Gentry, all of us who aren’t them might as well be fruit-pickers, lettuce-pickers, busboys, linen launderers — peasants to be ruled over by members of the Lucky Sperm Club.

The system the progressives most admire is the People’s Republic of China; a political elite wields absolute power, which they use to elevate friends and cronies to positions of wealth and status provided they profess unyielding loyalty to the party. And middle class is defined as having a 200 square foot apartment in a Proletarian rabbit warren.

Update: In California, Democrats are giving the Chinese model a trial run.
