Obama’s ‘Innocent’ Illegal Immigrant DREAMers Have Been Charged With WAY Over 16,226 Subsequent Crimes AFTER Being Released

August 10, 2012

Just remember, it doesn’t matter how many crimes they commit and it doesn’t matter how many American women are raped and murdered.  What matters is how many VOTES Obama gets.  And if you think otherwise, you’re a racist.

Arrested illegals who were released charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes
12:40 AM 08/09/2012

President Barack Obama‘s decision not to deport some arrested illegal immigrants has enabled a crime wave — but no American or immigrant victims have been publicly identified, and GOP politicians have mostly remained mute.

Illegal aliens who have been released from custody between 2008 and mid-2011 have been charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.

“Rather than protect the American people he was elected to serve, President Obama has imposed a policy that allows thousands of illegal immigrants to be released into our communities,” said a statement from Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House judiciary committee.

The criminals “were in the government’s custody, were identified as illegal immigrants and then let go because this administration has refused to request the resources to hold them and deport them,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

The White House press office did not respond to The Daily Caller’s questions.

The CRS study uses data subpoenaed from the federal government by House Committee on the Judiciary. The data details 159,286 cases where legal and illegal immigrants were arrested, identified via FBI databases and then let free, said the report.

Over a 33-month period, from October 2008 and July 2011, roughly one-sixth of those let go were later arrested for crimes.

The data shows that 26,412 of the 159,286 released legal and illegal immigrants were arrested later for 57,763 crimes, said the CRS.

The CRS found the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency “likely” had authority to deport only 7,283 — or 40 percent — of those repeat offenders. The other 19,129 had some form of legal status, and would not be liable for deportation until after conviction in a civil court.

After being released, the 7,283 deportable aliens were later charged with 16,226 crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes — such as rape or child molestation — almost 1,000 other major criminal offenses or violent crimes, plus 489 cases of theft, 551 traffic violations, 1,929 DUI violations and 156 parole violations.

Together, the released 26,412 illegal and legal immigrants were charged with 59 murders, 542 sex crimes, 6,270 drug crimes and up to 5,342 “major criminal offenses … [or] other violent crimes.”

“It is amazing to me there hasn’t been more fallout … [but] it is the Messiah’s administration [and] the media isn’t making a fuss,” Krikorian said. “It’s appalling.”

So far, the GOP “is cowed and scared that Hispanics won’t vote for them if they highlight illegal-alien murders” of Hispanics, he said. “It is so ridiculous, because the victims of immigrant gang-members are other immigrants.”

Chairman Smith, however, has pushed the issue. Obama’s “unwillingness to enforce immigration laws puts our communities at risk and costs American lives. We elect leaders to protect us — not put us in danger,” he said.

The new data about crimes committed by released legal and illegal immigrants comes as the administration rolls out a variety of new measures to boost the administration’s support among Hispanic voters. (RELATED: Obama immigration policy loosens work permit requirements)

The administration has also boosted welfare programs for legal and illegal immigrants and has redefined nearly all welfare programs to bypass laws barring welfare-receiving immigrants from residency or citizenship.

The Internal Revenue Service has also rolled back oversight of fraud in a program intended to handle immigrants taxes and refunds, according to an investigation by the IRS inspector general. The program provided $6.8 billion in refunds to immigrants, said an Aug. 8 report in The Washington Times.

Illegal immigrants were fraudulently given $4.2 billion in 2010 child-support tax credits, according to a July 2011 report by the Treasury Department’s inspector general. In 2012, that illegal claims likely will reach $7.4 billion, said the report.

In 2012, top Senate Democrats blocked a reform of the refund process.

Administration officials have rolled back enforcement of immigration laws, and have directed immigration-officers to release illegals, including some who have been approved by judges for deportation.

In recent months, the administration has offered what conservatives call a de-facto amnesty to an estimated 1.76 million illegal immigrants, including an estimated 350,000 illegals with little or no high-school education. The policy will more easily grant work permits, and will allow them to compete for jobs against 23 million unemployed or under-employed Americans.

The two-year amnesty, dubbed “deferred action,” is being offered free to illegal immigrants, including people also schedule for deportation. However, the illegals will have to pay the standard cost of $465 for the work permit.

The amnesty will not include convicted felons, drunk drivers or people who committed a series of felonies.

However, immigrant officers will not try to find out if amnesty applicants have committed crimes, such as identity theft, an administration official said Aug. 6. “We want to maximize participation.”

Don’t you DARE try to enforce immigration laws now, the Border Patrol and ICE are discovering.  Rather, if the illegal immigrant tells you he or she had been in the U.S. prior to turning 16 whether they can prove it or not, that assertion is to be treated like the Gospel. 

And we’re now learning that Obama is planning to redefine “misdemeanor” to get as many votes as he can possibly bring in:

One official suggested in the draft paper that the relevant agencies could “adopt a different definition of misdemeanor” for childhood arrivals. Existing guidelines that were published on the CIS website last week stated that for government officers reviewing these applications, “the absence of the [applicant’s] criminal history…or its presence, is not necessarily determinative, but is a factor to be considered.”

And it seems that no application will be rejected outright. “If the case is to be processed for a denial,” the DHS draft stated, “the case is routed to the Background Check Unit…where the case will undergo supervisory review before the denial is issued.”

What is going on is genuinely evil.  It is the most cynical and most depraved and most self-serving policy we have ever seen in this country.

And Obama is doing this over and over again, such as what we just learned about Obama demanding that police not be allowed to punish fascist Occupy OWS protesters.

Our nation is going bankrupt and Obama doesn’t give a damn.  If he can bring in another million welfare recipients who will vote Democrat, he’ll bring in another million more welfare recipients.  And if they are criminal welfare recipients, well, you’ve got to break a few eggs to bake a cake, don’t you?

100 MILLION Americans are now on some form of welfare:

And that aint nearly enough for Obama and for the Democrat Party.  When they can get an overwhelming majority of Americans – or at least “Americans” – utterly dependent on their socialist giveaways, they will finally get the goose-stepping power they’ve always wanted.

Will America collapse as fewer and fewer people bother to work?  You’re damn right it will.  But that’s a good thing, too.  Because Obama will get the true socialist State he has always dreamed of “fundamentally transforming America” into.

Obama DHS Demands No Documentation Be Required To Prove Already Treasonous-To-Begin-With DREAM Act, Say ICE And Border Patrol Unions

July 27, 2012

This is flat-out insane. 

You need to understand that Barack Obama abrogated the Constitution and abrogated the law to impose this DREAM garbage as it was.  The bill had been rejected by Congress.  Congress has the authority to pass laws; NOT Obama.  But he merely – like the fascist he is – imposed his own law by executive tyranny.

Obama had once said:

“The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

But Obama looked at the polls and said, “I don’t care how our system works.  I don’t care how our democracy functions.  I don’t give a damn how our Constitution is written.”  And then acted like the fascist he is to impose the DREAM act by tyranny rather than by the Constitution.

But it gets worse.  Because Obama isn’t even following the DREAM act as he imposed it.  He’s too dishonest to even follow the dishonest rules he imposed.

Two articles (the first with video of the ICE and Border Patrol revelation of Obama being a treasonous cockroach):

ICE rep: DHS is just letting illegal aliens go (Obama’s DREAM Act)

The video below shows Chris Crane of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council – a union representing 7200 ICE officers and employees – claiming that the orders from the Department of Homeland Security are to just release those who claim to be covered by Obama’s DREAM Act amnesty [1].

In the following, “DREAMer” refers to those who would be covered by that amnesty:

Prosecutorial discretion for “DREAMers” is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are, if an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go. Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not even required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria.

At this point, we don’t understand why DHS has criteria at all, as there is no requirement or burden to prove anything on the part of the alien. We believe that significant numbers of people who are not DREAMers are taking advantage of this practice to avoid arrest.

As another example, the incident in El Paso that we released publicly last week, ICE managers were provided the following details: 1. an alien was arrested by local police and placed in jail on two charges. Charge 1: assault with bodily injury to a family member, and Charge 2: interfering with that person’s attempts to call for emergency assistance. When ICE later arrest the individual for immigration violations, he attempted to escape – another criminal offense. One agent was injured during the incident, claiming the injuries were intentionally inflicted by the escapee, another criminal offense – of course, assault of a federal agent. In this case we have four possible criminal charges, two involving violence, one injured family member, and one injured officer.

Without any questioning, without any investigation, the alien was released as a DREAMer. No criminal charges, to immigration charges, no nothing. He’s a DREAMer, release him. Incidents like this around the nation lead us to believe that the new policies will be ineffective in terms of providing for public safety.

Immigrants don’t have to prove they meet DREAM Act criteria to avoid charges, ICE union chief says
12:43 AM 07/27/2012

A top union official for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers said Thursday that President Barack Obama’s administration has ordered ICE agents to blindly — and without any evidence — believe illegal immigrants if they claim they qualify for Obama’s administrative DREAM Act.

Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, explained at a press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday afternoon how the new selective immigration law enforcement policy Obama announced during a White House Rose Garden speech in June is affecting the officers he represents.

“As we still wait on detailed guidance from the administration, it’s impossible to understand the full scope of the administration’s changes, but what we’ve seen so far concerns us greatly,” Crane, said. “As one example, prosecutorial discretion for DREAMers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are: If an alien says they went to high school, then let them go. If they say they have a GED, then let them go.”

“Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything,” he continued. “Even with the greatly relaxed policies, the alien is not required to prove that they meet any of the new criteria.”

ICE officers are often called in after local and state law enforcement officials arrest a person and find that he or she is an illegal immigrant. ICE officers also conduct their own investigations and detain suspected illegal immigrants independent of other law enforcement. Normally, if the immigrant is found to be in the country illegally, ICE would bring federal charges against him, possibly leading to deportation.

Under the new orders, however, illegals can escape federal charges simply by claiming — whether it’s the truth or not — that they meet the DREAM Act rule’s requirements issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Crane did not specify who has given his officers these new orders.

The new directive would contradict Homeland Security’s own words in announcing the policy, which said that “only those individuals who can prove through verifiable documentation that they meet these criteria will be eligible for deferred action.

Homeland Security announced in June that it will not go after illegals who came to the U.S. under the age of 16 and are not more than 30 years old; have lived in the U.S. for five straight years; are currently in school or have graduated high school, obtained a GED or been honorably discharged from the military; have not been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor and are not a threat to public safety.

“At this point, we don’t understand why DHS even has criteria at all as there is no requirement or burden to prove anything on the part of the alien,” Crane added. “We believe significant numbers of aliens who are not DREAMers are taking advantage of this practice to avoid arrest.”

“The lawlessness must end,” Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, whose office organized the presser, said.

“They’ve handcuffed and muffled those charged with protecting the public safety and the integrity of our borders,” Sessions said. “Such action has not only weakened our security but our democracy. All Americans, immigrant and native born, will have a better future if our nation remains unique in the world for its special reverence for the rule of law and fairness in our immigration system.”

George McCubbin, the president of the AFL-CIO-backed National Border Patrol Council, said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s claim that the border is more secure than ever are downright untrue.

“She conveniently forgot to ask the men and women on the front line if indeed that were true, but rather she relied on the information and statistic provided to her by those in positions of interest of having her reflect whatever position the administration wants her to reflect — in this case, that’s a safe and secure border,” McCubbin said. “When you surround yourself with people who always say ‘yes,’ you will get the answer you are seeking.”

McCubben hasn’t yet gone to Department of Homeland Security leadership with his concerns about Obama’s new administrative DREAM Act program yet because he and the 17,000 agents he represents still have no clue what they’re supposed to do and what they’re not supposed to do. “I’m still waiting to get instructions from our own agency,” he said in response to a question from The Daily Caller. “Actually, our own agency was caught off guard when this came out.”

Crane said efforts to get a fair hearing with Napolitano, ICE Director John Morton or other administration officials have been futile.

“We’ve spent the last three-and-a-half years trying to work with this administration from Director Morton to Secretary Napolitano, who won’t meet with us,” Crane said. “We’ve actually been to the White House and tried to talk to those folks — and, basically, they don’t want to hear our concerns. They don’t want to work with us at all.”

“The only groups that they will work with are the NGOs, the immigrant advocacy groups,” Crane said. “Whether it’s the security protocols for our detention centers or our law enforcement practices out in the field, those are being driven by wish lists from immigrant advocacy groups with no input from law enforcement officers in the field.”

Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the policy is nothing more than a political stunt by Obama to deliver on a campaign promise he has thus far failed to fulfill.

“The president campaigns in 2008 that, in the first year, he’s going to have immigration issues solved,” Grassley said. “At this point, after three-and-a-half years, we have not seen any bill whatsoever. So, then as is a core pattern in this administration, you got to blame somebody else, so it [the administration] comes up with this statement: ‘if Congress won’t, I will.’”

In God damn America, a tyrant who is un-American, un-democratic and unconstitutional by his very own rhetoric is undermining American national security and the US economy left and right merely in order to cynically win votes.

A nation that allows this is not a nation that is fit to survive and it won’t survive for much longer under this fascist fool.  That’s the essence of God damn America.

Update, August 3, 2012: It is now a punishale offense to arrest an illegal immigrant in Obama’s God Damn America because Obama’s God damn re-election trumps the Constitution and everything else:

Sen. Sessions wants answers as ICE agent faces suspension for illegal immigrant arrest
By Todd Starnes
Published August 03, 2012
Fox News Radio

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., is demanding answers after a report surfaced that a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent is facing punishment for arresting an illegal immigrant.

The unidentified agent could face a three-day suspension after he arrested a 35-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who had as many as 10 traffic violations.

The agent was ordered by supervisors to release the individual because he was not a “priority target.” When the officer balked, he was threatened with a three-day suspension and the illegal alien was let go.

“The actions that it appears were taken by your agency send a message to agents in the field that they will be punished for doing their duty and enforcing the law,” Sessions wrote in an letter to ICE Director John Morton and obtained exclusively by Fox News.

Obama Administration Instruction To Border Patrol If They Are Fired Upon: ‘Run Away’ And ‘Hide’

June 30, 2012

Do you remember the Monty Python flick about the “Holy Grail”?

What did they do whenever they were attacked?

“Run away!” 

And Obama hastily adds, “and hide.”

Now the United States Border Patrol are making Monty Python required instructional viewing to comply with Obama’s new policy:

Border Patrol union blasts Homeland Security instructions to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’ from gunmen
By Perry Chiaramonte
Published June 29, 2012
FoxNews.com

Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an “active shooter.”

It’s one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial.

“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’” union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).”

The FEMA-administered computer course, entitled “IS-907- Active Shooter: What You Can Do,” is a 45-minute tutorial that provides guidance to all employees on how to recognize indicators of possible workplace violence and what to do should their office be invaded by gunmen and focuses around three main options; either evacuate, hide out, or in dire circumstances, take action.

Main Points of the “Active Shooter” training course
  • Evacuate: If there is an accessible escape path, attempt to evacuate the premises.
  • Hide out: If evacuation is not possible, find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find
    you.
  • Take action: As a last resort, and only when your life is in imminent danger, attempt to disrupt and/or
    incapacitate the active shooter.

Once the course is completed, employees are urged to download additional materials including a summary booklet and pocket-sized card outlining protocol, which was also handed out to employees two months ago.

One DHS employee told FoxNews.com the instruction cards were handed out to employees six weeks ago. At the time, he assumed they were only for civilian employees, not armed law enforcement officers within the department, which oversees the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“Requiring BP agents to follow the same steps is egregious,” he said.

DHS officials maintain that the Active Shooter course was designed for all employees—civilian and law-enforcement officers– and no one should rush into a situation where they, or others around them, could get hurt.

“The Department of Homeland Security takes very seriously its responsibility to protect all of its employees from threats that may surface in the workplace,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Friel said in a written statement to FoxNews.com

“CBP workforce training is designed to prepare all employees, including leaders, managers, supervisors, law enforcement personnel and non-law enforcement personnel, to understand their own roles and the roles of their fellow employees in responding to threats. In an active shooter scenario, employees are taught to take actions that keep them alive.”

But members of Local 2544 say they are obligated to protect the public in such a situation, whether they are on duty or not. Given the instructions, some wonder if they would be disciplined for taking down a gunman in a situation like the Fort Hood shooting or the January, 2011 case in Casa Adobes, in which a deranged gunmen shot 19 people, including Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Six people were killed.

“It is always comforting to know that for those of us who carry a weapon when we are off-duty, if we should encounter such a situation, stop a shooter and save countless lives, we can look forward to being disciplined or fired by the Border Patrol because we should have run away to hide and then maybe thrown objects at the deranged killer instead of taking action and stopping him with a firearm,” the union local’s website says.

Here’s the new border reality under Barack Obama:

And:

And:

Under Obama, illegal immigration is not a crime.

If an illegal immigrant shoots at a Border Patrol agent, it is not a crime.

If the Border Patrol agent returns fire – you know, not having ran away and hidden – THAT is a crime.

God … Damn … America…

And here’s the official response from Mexico:

I’m so ashamed.  Mind you, I could be even MORE ashamed; I could be a US Border Patrol agent trying to find a shrub to hide behind.

The Monty Python administration border policy has come to full fruition.  It’s the Ministry of Silly Walks applied to border security.  That’s the level of absurdity going on.

And it is all being done by a president who is willing to treasonously betray America in order to win the Hispanic vote.

Brian Terry was responsible for his own death.  He should have “evacuated the premises” and “found a place to hide.”  So it’s not Eric Holder’s fault just because he gave the Mexican drug cartel murderers the guns to shoot Officer Terry with.

Update, July 3, 2012:  Border Patrol officers have issued the following statement:

Telling law enforcement officers that in all instances they are to run away and hide from some thug while innocent victims are butchered is simply inexcusable and pathetic.”

Obama Continues To Tell Shocking Demonstrable Lies: This Time About The Border Fence.

May 11, 2011

Let’s take a look at how Obama deceives and lies in his campaign mode:

May 10, 2011
Obama Claims Border Fence ‘Basically Complete’ But It’s Only 5% Finished

Obama said today in El Paso…”They wanted more agents on the border. Well, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history. The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents – more than twice as many as there were in 2004, a build up that began under President Bush and that we have continued. They wanted a fence. Well, that fence is now basically complete.”

Five years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double-layer border fence along the southwest border. This is a promise that has not been kept.

Today, according to staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5 percent of the double-layer fencing is complete, only 36.3 miles.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress’s investigative arm, reported in early 2009 that only 32 miles of double-layer fencing had been built. That means under President Obama, only 4.3 miles of double layer fencing has been built. This is woefully inadequate.

These aren’t just little lies.  They are gargantuan lies.  Obama is counting on the fact that 1) most Americans are ignorant; and 2) the mainstream media has become a leftist ideological propaganda tool.

And keep in mind, that 700 mile fence that Obama lies about being “basically complete” itself would only have run across 35% of our 2,000 mile border even if Obama had allowed it to be built.  Instead of saying he did something that he clearly did not do.

And we find of that 2,000 mile border, only 873 miles – just 44% – are deemed to be under “operational control” by the Border Patrol.

Obama called – again deceitfully and falsely – for a rational debate on the issue of border security.  Let’s see what he considers “rational”:

“…We have gone above and beyond what was requested by the very Republicans who said they supported broader reform as long as we got serious about enforcement. All the stuff they asked for, we’ve done. But even though we’ve answered these concerns, I suspect there will be some who will try to move the goal posts one more time (someone in the crowd yells “racists!”) They said we need to triple the border patrol. Or now they’ll say we need to quadruple the border patrol. Or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they want alligators in the moat! They’ll never be satisfied, and I understand that. That’s politics. But the truth is the measures we’ve put in place are getting results.”

President Obama in El Paso, TX

Really, Hussein?  Republicans have been calling for moats and alligators, have they?  I’d like to see that bill. 

But if Republicans AREN’T pushing for a moat with alligators in it, it is difficult to have a meaningful debate with a liar who demagogues straw men.

Do we need to triple our border security?  Do we need to “quadruple the border patrol”?  Or more?  Maybe we do.  If we need to quadruple, then we quadruple; whatever it takes to get the job done.  Because we need to get control over our borders, rather than merely demonize and politically demagogue the people who proclaim how out-of-control our borders truly are.

Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu says of Obama and Janet Napalitano, “They’re divorced from reality.”  In a separate interview, Sheriff Babeu pointed out that the people on the front lines in the border states are crying for help, but instead of helping, the federal government sends in batallions of attorneys to fight those states, and further undermines the rule of law, and actually gives the states signs that warn citizens that their own country isn’t theirs anymore:

We need a leader, and what we have is a naked liar and a shameless political demagogue.

Lying deceitful hypocrite liberals like Obama frame the border issue as a moral one.  But if Hispanics voted Republican, NOBODY would be louder in crying for them to be expelled from America than Democrats.  As it is, we have a massive invasion overwhelming our social support services and our budgets, and Democrats are rooting for the implosion of our nation because doing so helps them politically.

Barack Obama is an evil man.  He is a liar without shame or honor.  He is the kind of liar who builds 4.3 miles of a 700 mile fence and then says he did everything Republicans asked him to do.

Napalitano Travels To Afghanistan To Make Its Border As Secure As America’s

January 3, 2011

Afghanistan is in trouble.  Fools are descending upon their country to give them advice.

Asking Janet Napolitano – or ANYBODY from the Obama administration – for advice on securing a border is rather like asking Tiger Woods for marital advice.

Napolitano Visit Aimed at Beefing Up Afghan Border Security, Customs

By Mike Levine
Published December 31, 2010
| FoxNews.com

KABUL, Afghanistan — During an unannounced New Year’s Eve visit to Afghanistan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano traveled to the country’s mountainous border region near Pakistan to see first-hand her department’s efforts in the war effort there.

“Seeing is worth a thousand words,” Napolitano said after the tour, to which Fox News was granted exclusive access. “This all involves safety and security in this part of the world. And that is something that has direct connection as well to the United States.”

She described her department’s role in war-torn Afghanistan as a “complement” to the military operations there.

Her agency has about two dozen officials in Afghanistan, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, Customs and Border Protection officers, and Border Patrol agents. Many are training Afghan security forces to manage their country’s borders.

Poor Afghanistan.  They really don’t have any chance at all, do they?

The only thing worse than the blind leading the blind are the fools leading the fools.

The Obama administration’s approach to securing a border entails, first of all, doing nothing whatsoever to actually secure the border at all.  Because, obviously, doing something like securing a border is racist.  The second step in Obama border non-security involves carefully placing signs in border states announcing the surrender of national sovereignty, and advising citizens to keep out so the illegal immigrants can conduct their business without being disturbed by gringos who stupidly care about enforcing their country’s laws:

The third step involves vigorously attacking Arizona or any other state that actually wants to have any kind of meaningful security from the illegal immigrant invasion.  And, oh, you can add additional steps, such as bogus eggheaded liberal pseudo-scientific studies to show that the invasion across America’s border is actually a good thing for the United States.

You know, apart from the fact that the above ridiculous idea is complete and unadulterated bullcrap when you consider even MEXICO acknowledges that the very same immigrants are a burden when they return to their own country.

Oh, it also wouldn’t be hard to simply change “illegal immigrant” to “terrorist.”  Or, as Janet Napolitano and her boss Barry Hussein prefer to call them, “advocates of man-caused disaster.”

And, of course, the final step of the Obama administration’s border non-security is to demonize anyone and everything that in any way seeks to actually make the border more secure.

If you want to see the “theories” of border security that Janet Napolitano will be bringing from the Obama administration, see here, or here.

It’s like a sick joke that just keeps getter sicker and sicker.

Like I said, poor Afghanistan.

Illegal Immigrants: Amazingly, Conservatives Don’t Want These People In America

November 19, 2009

A story that is becoming increasingly passe just over our southern border:

Women, Children Raped In County’s ‘Most Dangerous Area‘”

SAN DIEGO — Authorities said a desolate corner of San Diego County may be its most violent area. It is so dangerous 10News crews had to put on bulletproof vests before entering the area near Boulevard.

“The violence in this area is so bad that a 12-year-old was raped to death,” said Estela De Los Rios of the Center for Social Advocacy.

In the area, authorities said there are pieces of evidence left behind that serve as a grim reminder of the violence happening near the U.S.-Mexico border.

“They’re ruthless; they’ll come over here, they’ll pick one out that they want, they drag her off onto the rocks, they’ll rape her and they just leave them here,” said Carl Braun, founder of the Border Patrol Auxiliary, a group that assists U.S. Border Patrol agents.

The rapes are committed by the people the victims trust, authorities said. The women and their families give their life savings to human smugglers, only to be hurt by them.

“What they’ll do is they’ll get them in sight of the border or right across the border and then they’ll demand a form of payment that wasn’t agreed to on the front end. They will take them off and then rape them,” said Braun.

After raping the women, authorities said the smugglers hang their underwear on the trees as trophies to mark their brutal conquests.

Braun said he has witnessed a woman being raped but could not help because it happened on the south side of the border.

“In the morning, we found her undergarments hanging from that stick that’s sticking up by the fence there,” said Braun.

Braun said the violence has now crossed the border into San Diego County.

Here are my thoughts about this: build a wall.  Build it tall and strong.  And patrol our side of it.  Keep these people the hell out of our country.

And in so doing prevent helpless women and children from trusting these human-suit-wearing-cockroaches to illegally bring them here in the first place.

La Raza-types would argue that my opposing illegal immigration qualifies me as a racist, to which I shout, “What a racist thing of you to say!”  They don’t bother to make a distinction between legal and illegal immigration.  If I oppose illegal immigration I’m a racist.  But they’re the racists.  And why should anyone care what they say?

La Raza may not give a damn about these Mexican women and young girls being raped  by Coyotes within sight of the U.S. border, but I sure do.

Conservatives are all in favor of immigration – from ALL over the world, and not just from Mexico or Latin America – as long as it is a) legal and b) benefits the United States.  Now, very little of either occurs.

Allow me to elaborate on how we severed the improvement of the United States from our immigration policy to show how we got to this point.

This country used to have the best interest of the nation and its own people as a core value.  But in 1965, championed by Democrat President Lyndon Johnson and Senator Ted Kennedy, that changed with the passage of the Hart-Celler Act.  Democrats assured the country that our borders would never be flooded with waves of immigrants.

The Hart-Celler Act repealed our previous immigration laws – which Democrats attacked as favoring Europeans and immigrants with job skills – and replaced our previous sane policy with one of chain immigration.  Instead of bringing in people with the job skills this country needed, the agenda became bringing in relatives of immigrants [Source: Mark Levin, Liberty And Tyranny, pp 150-151, and his citation from the Center for Immigration Studies, Sept. 1995].

We have continued to see wave after wave of unskilled immigrants flow into our country, along with their unskilled relatives, ever since.  We have attracted them with all the welfare benefits that a Great Society could provide.  And we have encouraged illegal immigration by these means, and by refusing to deal with the crisis our own elected representatives have foisted upon us.

Republican Representative William Miller understood the ramifications quite well.  He said, “We estimate that if the President gets his way, and the current immigration laws are repealed, the number of immigrants next year will increase threefold and in subsequent years will increase even more.”

He was right.  The Democrats were terribly wrong – other than the fact that they have – at the expense of the nation and the American people – successfully created a new pro-Democrat special interest/constituency group.

We need to end the process by which unskilled Latin American immigrants flood into this country either illegally or legally, and return to the system – based on fair international quotas and job skills – in which the most qualified people from all over the world come here to start new lives as Americans.  We need to encourage immigrants who will leave their cultures behind and embrace American values, rather than our current system which encourages our immigrants to march against the clear national interests of the American people on a communist holiday (May Day) carrying a Mexican flag rather than the American flag – or even worse:

For what it’s worth, I’m not opposed to qualified, skilled immigrants legally coming here from Mexico or the Latin American hemisphere.  Quite the contrary.  I would gladly welcome such new Americans to this country.  But you can count on me being much less gracious and welcoming to people who come and demand welfare benefits while flying a foreign flag.
