US LOST The “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CHILDREN”

July 14, 2014 Leave a comment

WASHINGTON — Two days after the White House declared that most immigrant kids crossing illegally from Central America would be sent back home, a top administration official admitted Wednesday that nearly half have already vanished within the United States.

The official, Juan Osuna, director of the Executive Office of Immigration Review at the Department of Justice, told a Senate committee that about 46 percent of all children, accompanied and unaccompanied, apprehended by authorities fail to show up for hearings before immigration judges.

He told the panel the office didn’t have a court-response rate for the unaccompanied children that have flooded through the southern border in recent months, so that rate could be even higher.

The rate could be even higher among the unaccompanied children that have flooded through the southern US border in recent months.
Osuna indicated that even kids who obey the law face lengthy waits inside the United States because immigration courts are overloaded with 375,000 cases, a record.

“We are facing the largest caseload that the agency has ever seen,” Osuna testified before the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

The eye-opening testimony left a far different impression of the border crisis than White House spokesman Josh Earnest did Monday, when he said the majority of the illegal-immigrant kids wouldn’t be allowed to stay.

“Based on what we know about these cases, it is unlikely that most of these kids will qualify for humanitarian relief,” Earnest said. “And what that means is they will not have a legal basis for remaining in this country and will be returned.”
Critics fret that the kids will eventually go underground.

The Senate hearing came on a day when President Obama headed to Texas amid criticism the administration has been slow to react to the torrent of kids fleeing largely from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

The number of unaccompanied kids caught since October hit 57,000, more than double the number last year.

“The fact is that people show up and they have every reason to believe, according to these numbers, that … there is ample incentive for them to come to this country,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

Children from Central American countries by law are granted due process before the immigration court system to determine whether they can stay in the country legally for humanitarian reasons.

They are required to be held in the least restrictive environment, so that means about 95 percent are released to family or adult sponsors in the United States pending court hearings, Mark Greenberg, an HHS official told the Senate panel.
Under tough questioning from Sen. Tom Coburn ( R-Okla.), Greenberg admitted the administration has a policy of not checking the immigration status of the relatives who receive the children.

It’s no wonder, Coburn said, the children aren’t coming back to court because their relatives now fear deportation.

“The likelihood they [the children] are going to show up before a judge is markedly diminished because it exposes them [their relatives],” Coburn said.
Greenberg countered that his department’s priority is making sure the children are placed in a safe home.

Mexican gangs trying to run black families out of southern California – National Immigration Reform

Does Obama plan to disarm them?

Does Obama plan to disarm them?

On Friday, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Compton Varrio 155 gang members Jeffrey Aguilar, 19, and Efren Marquez, 21, as well as a juvenile. All three have reportedly been engaged in a campaign of violence and intimidation against a black family who moved into Compton last month.

All three are facing hate crimes charges.

Marquez allegedly held the victim at gunpoint while Aguilar beat the man with a metal pipe, according to detectives.

The suspects, along with dozens of others returned on a daily basis to intimidate the family.

The case is still under investigation and more arrests are expected.

The Los Angeles Times reported:

"When a friend came to visit, four men in a black SUV pulled up and called him a "nigger," saying black people were barred from the neighborhood, according to Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies. They jumped out, drew a gun on him and beat him with metal pipes.

It was just the beginning of what detectives said was a campaign by a Latino street gang to force an African American family to leave.

The attacks on the family are the latest in a series of violent incidents in which Latino gangs targeted blacks in parts of greater Los Angeles over the last decade.

Federal authorities have alleged in several indictments in the last decade that the Mexican Mafia prison gang has ordered street gangs under its control to attack African Americans. Leaders of the Azusa 13 gang were sentenced to lengthy prison terms earlier this month for leading a policy of attacking African American residents and expelling them from the town.

Similar attacks have taken place in Harbor Gateway, Highland Park, Pacoima, San Bernardino, Canoga Park and Wilmington, among other places. In the Compton case, sheriff’s officials say the gang appears to have been acting on its own initiative."

Of course, violence directed at blacks by Latino gang members has been occurring at an alarming rate throughout southern California.

In April 2012, while testifying in the trial of a gang member, Erik Witholt, an Escondido police detective, told the court that a leader of the Mexican Mafia had ordered several Latino street gangs to work on "getting blacks out of Escondido."

An unidentified North County Latino gang member told the North County Times: "When he (Espudo) first got out [of prison], that’s one of the first things he did. He saw how things have changed, from when he went in to when he came out, so he made that ‘green light.’"

A ‘green light’ is a gang term for permission to severely beat or murder someone.

The North County Times reported that Mexican Mafia member Rudy Espudo has "directed street gang activity in inland North County. Espudo was arrested in January and indicted, with 118 other people, for a range of crimes, including racketeering and drug dealing," according to federal law enforcement.

Wilholt also said that violent, unprovoked attacks on blacks in Escondido have greatly increased since the powerful gang issued the order in 2008.

-On February 6, 2012, a black man sat waiting in a car with his girlfriend and her child, was at Rose Street and East Valley Parkway when seven Latino gang members surrounded their vehicle and repeatedly stabbed the man. The victim barely survived the ordeal.

Of course, violence directed at blacks by Latino gang members has been occurring at an alarming rate throughout California.

-In 2011, five Latino gang members were charged with hate crimes against black men in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Oceanside.

-In March 2008, as 17-year-old Jamiel Shaw walked home, illegal alien gang member Pedro Espinoza pulled alongside the teenager, and asked him what gang he was in. According to witnesses, the high school football standout did not answer him, he did not answer because he had no part of gang life.

According to police, Espinoza then opened fire on Jamiel, killing him only feet away from his house. His father heard the gunshots that would take his son from his side forever.

At the time of his murder, Jamiel’s mom, Anita Shaw, was deployed in Iraq with the U.S. Army. She returned home for his funeral.

Espinoza has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial for first-degree murder.

Because Los Angeles is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, even violent gang members such as Espinoza are all too often placed back into the communities they terrorize, rather than turning them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation.

The Shaw family continues to fight for the passage of "Jamiel’s Law" which would force Los Angeles law enforcement to crack down upon and target illegal alien gang members, much the same way the Shaw family and many others believe that those same illegal aliens are now targeting the black residents of L.A.

The family has a website dedicated to Jamiel, and the passage of the measure. Visitors can make a donation through the website, all donations go to purchasing media ads to promote "Jamiel’s Law" and to raise awareness of the dangers posed by illegal aliens to American citizens.

In late 2010, this reporter spoke with Jamiel’s aunt, Althea Rae Shaw, who said of her nephew: "I just miss him so much, he loved his country and he was so proud that his mom was serving in Iraq…he couldn’t wait to see her come home."

When asked what message she would like her community to hear, Mrs. Shaw said: "We really need to target Supervisor Ridley Thomas, we need to recall him and we really need a new city council."

"We need a city council geared to protecting American citizens, instead of illegal aliens. We need public officials who will stop bowing down to illegal aliens," she added.

Jamiel Shaw was not a gang member, nor was he a ‘troubled youth,’ nor did he fit into any of the categories or labels our society so often uses to explain away a senseless murder. He was a good kid with a very bright future, loved by a strong family…a family who still loves him and who still fights for him.

The Shaw family continues to fight for the passage of "Jamiel’s Law" which would force Los Angeles law enforcement to crack down upon and target illegal alien gang members, much the same way the Shaw family and many others believe that those same illegal aliens are now targeting the black residents of L.A.

Border Patrol Reports More Stash Houses in the Valley

June 5, 2013 Leave a comment

Posted: Jun 3, 2013 9:48 PM

WESLACO – Border Patrol officials said more stash houses are being discovered in the Rio Grande Valley.
Border Patrol agents on Monday arrested more than 30 illegal immigrants at a stash house north of Edinburg.
The house walls were covered with graffiti. Authorities said the symbols may be tied to criminal organization.
"A lot of the indicators on the wall are tied to transnational criminal organizations. There’s markings and other information up there. You may have one group that may have left a message behind for the next group. The information may be written on the wall," Border Patrol Spokesman Henry Mendiola said.
Mendiola said 27 of the 34 immigrants are from countries other then Mexico. Several women were among the immigrants.

"There’s very, very little privacy. They may have a door in the bathroom, but that’s all you’re going to get. The rest is done in the front of everybody else," Mendiola said.
Agents said the house appeared to have been used to hide immigrants for some time.
An hour after the raid, agents rushed to a field to look for a group of illegal immigrants. They said the immigrants were hiding along the road. They fled into the field when they saw the agents.
Agents arrested 40 immigrants at the site.
"These people ran about a half mile in this heat, and they’re not prepared for that. They haven’t had decent food or water and they’re not prepared to take on these elements," Mendiola said.

McAllen, TX

Edinburg stash house case dubbed "Welcome to Hell"
MCALLEN, Texas — A Mexican couple was indicted Tuesday for conspiring to harbor aliens and alien harboring, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson, Southern District of Texas. The investigation is being led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) with the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Border Patrol.
Vicente Ortiz-Soto and Marcial Salas-Gardunio, both 23 and Mexican nationals, were indicted on charges of conspiracy to harbor aliens and alien harboring. The indictment returned May 15 alleges local law enforcement officers, working alongside federal authorities, were sent to a residence in Edinburg, Texas, May 2, after a 911 caller indicated he was being held against his will in an alien stash house.
According to court documents, upon arrival at the scene, authorities discovered more than 100 undocumented aliens of various countries of origin located in three separate buildings on the property. One building was chain-locked and several undocumented aliens who were locked inside the building were treated for injuries.
Statements taken from the undocumented aliens indicated they were allegedly threatened by Salas-Gardunio that they would be beaten or killed if they did not remain quiet. Additionally, witnesses indicated Salas-Gardunio stated "Welcome to Hell" when undocumented aliens arrived at the residence.
HSI arrested the couple May 2 without incident. Both will remain in federal custody without bond pending trial. A date for their arraignment on the formal charges alleged in the indictment will be set by the court in the near future.
If convicted, Ortiz-Soto and Salas-Gardunio could face a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Cory J. H. Crenshaw, Southern District of Texas, is prosecuting the case.
The public is reminded that an indictment is a formal accusation of criminal conduct, not evidence. The defendants are presumed innocent unless convicted through due process of law.

(Friday, April 13, 2012)
Pine Valley, Calif. — A ceremony was held at the Campo Border Patrol Station yesterday to dedicate a stretch of the Interstate 8 in honor of Border Patrol Agent Robert W. Rosas, Jr., who was killed in the line of duty on the night of July 23, 2009.

Border Patrol Agent Robert W. Rosas Jr. was killed in the line of duty on July 23, 2009.
 
 
 

To preserve Agent Rosas’ memory, representatives from the U.S. Border Patrol, Local Border Patrol 1613 Union, CalTrans, SoCal Patriots, and California State Senator Joel Anderson’s office gathered to announce the renaming of a portion of Interstate 8 between San Diego and the Imperial Valley. As part of the ceremony, signs were placed along the interstate to identify the stretch named in Robert Rosas’ honor. Also in attendance were members of Agent Rosas’ immediate and extended family, including his widow and two children.

Campo Border Patrol Station Acting Patrol Agent in Charge Richard Gordon remarked, “This is a very special occasion and a fitting tribute to ensure that our Border Patrol family member and friend, Robert Rosas, is never forgotten.” 

 
A stretch of the Interstate 8 was dedicated in the name of fallen Border Patrol Agent Robert W. Rosas Jr.
 
 
 

Because of these signs, the daily commuter on Interstate 8 will soon come to know Agent Rosas on their trips between Imperial Valley and San Diego. For Border Patrol agents who see Robert’s name on their way to work, it will be a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that he made and of the dangers Border Patrol agents face on a daily basis.

To prevent illicit smuggling of humans, drugs, and other contraband, the U.S. Border Patrol maintains a high level of vigilance on major corridors of egress away from our nation’s borders. To report suspicious activity to the U.S. Border Patrol, contact San Diego Sector at (619) 498-9900.

Terrorist Fears Will Force Obama to Send Troops to the Border

March 7, 2012 Leave a comment

usopenborders.com
America and Iran have been involved in a covert war for many years over Iran’s efforts to geopolitically dominate the Middle East. Fearing the political and financial costs of sustaining protracted military actions against Iran, the Obama Administration has cranked up a covert program of assassinations, cyber-attacks and support for Syrian “freedom fighters” to frustrate Iran’s ambitions.

But given the Administration’s pandering to Hispanic voters by allowing loose enforcement of immigration laws against “undocumented workers”, there is a growing political danger that Democrats will be destroyed if Iranian agents with the help of Mexican narco-smugglers successfully sneak a biological or dirty bomb across the border before the November elections. Consequently, I believe the Obama Administration will send thousands of U.S. infantrymen to the Mexican border to cut off illegal alien crossings.
It is suspected that Iran has financed infiltration of “sleeper cell” agents into the United States. Hosam Maher Husein Smadi was arrested by the FBI in Dallas in 2009 while trying to plant a bomb to blow up a 60 story glass tower in downtown Dallas. Texas, with 1,254 miles of the 1,900-mile-long U.S.-Mexico border, has always been the hotbed for “illegal alien” crossings. The mostly rural Texas border communities are some of the poorest regions in our nation. If counties along the border comprised our 51st state, it would rank last in per capita personal income and first in poverty and unemployment. Consequently, human and drug trafficking are the border’s biggest industry.
Of the 40,000 average annual numbers of illegal Texas border crossers arrested by Federal and Texas border agents, approximately 400 are designated as “Special Interest Aliens” because their country of origin was in the Middle East. Given that only 10% of illegals are arrested, Iran could have smuggled 3,600 agents into America each year.
Mexican smuggling used to be controlled by local families, but in the last few years the Los Zetas Cartel in the east and the Sinaloa Cartel in the west have waged war to consolidate control of all Mexican narco-trafficking. Started by Mexican Special Forces operators and trained by the U.S. and Israel, Los Zetas is conducting a paramilitary terrorist campaign of assassinations, extortions, kidnappings and beheadings. Historically the Mexican drug dealers employed “plata o plomo” (literally translated as “silver or lead,” the Spanish phrase signifying cooperation with either a bribe or a bullet). But Los Zetas conserve silver by using sophisticated weapons they acquire from Iran and others to shoot more effectively. Over 50,000 Mexican homicides have been racked up in the last 5 years and the bloodbath is accelerating.
With murders and beheadings spilling over to the United States side of the border, Mexican President Felipe Calderón, the DEA and the CIA partnered to stop the spectacular rise of the Los Zetas and Sinaloa cartels. This resulted in big name arrests, including the recent arrest of Humberto Canales Lazcano, aka “El Chivo,” top hit man and cousin of the leader of Los Zetas.
But the rising violence has destroyed Calderon’s National Action Party’s (PAN) chances of winning the Mexican election on July 1st. Insecurity has left most Mexicans desperate for a leader who can pacify the gangsters. Leading candidate, Enrique Pena Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), criticizes Calderon for not having a “clear” diagnosis before launching a “hasty” offensive against the cartels, saying he favors gradually withdrawing Mexican troops from city streets. To Mexicans this is code for Pena having already cut a deal to leave the cartels alone for lucrative financial support.
Examples of America ratcheting up the covert war include the 2010 “Stuxnet” virus attack infecting 16,000 computers involved in Iran’s nuclear program and funding and logistics support to the Syrian “Freedom Fighters.” Iran responded by increasing “Qods” force paramilitary operatives and sophisticated military hardware in Venezuela as a staging platform for actions against the United States. Michael A. Braun, former DEA chief of operations testified to the House Foreign Affairs Committee that operational capability of such groups is being “strengthened by the close relations that they are working hard to develop very powerful organized criminal organizations in our neighborhood” which “allow them to operate freely in our neighborhood, and they’re getting closer to our doorstep.” Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, asserted Iran’s diplomatic alliance could give the Islamic Republic’s intelligence forces and proxy groups “a platform in the region to carry out attacks against the United States.”
This growing nexus between Iran and narco-traffickers represents an existential threat to the viability of the Democratic Party. The new movie Act of Valor, which films real Navy Seals, depicts a fictional partnership between Chechen terrorists and Mexican narco-traffickers smuggling weapons-of-mass-destruction across the border to attack American shopping malls. This is why I believe the Obama Administration was willing to take the heat from leftists who howled military coup and conservatives who screeched police state, when they passed “National Defense Authorization Act” in the Senate by a 93-7 vote. The bill overturns the “Posse Comitatus Act of 1878”, allowing the President to define the United States as a “battleground” in a “never ending war” against terror, allowing use of U.S. military forces to carry out arrests, detentions, interrogations and executions against Americans on U.S. soil.
If terrorist attacks come from across the Mexican border, Democrats will be crucified in the November elections for politically-motivated lax border enforcement. This why I believe armed American infantrymen will be soon be patrolling along the Mexican border for the first time since Civil War Reconstruction.
