Another Example of How Sanctuary Jurisdictions Obstruct Enforcement

“Last week, ICE officers in California took to the streets for four days to round up 244 criminal aliens who had been at large in six southern California counties. Billed by ICE as a “fugitive operation,” in fact the round-up was a sanctuary mop-up action. If the number of sanctuary jurisdictions continues to grow (there are now more than 310), and Congress does not take action, ICE increasingly will be obliged to do its important work in this manner. And that’s the way the Obama administration wants immigration enforcement to be: inefficient, expensive, and frightening to immigrants. But it doesn’t have to be this way,” says Jessica Vaughn of CIS.

Complaint Filed Over DNC Hiring of Illegal Alien

“Conservative nonprofit Judicial Watch Wednesday demanded a federal investigation into the Democratic National Committee for intentionally hiring an illegal immigrant. The DNC hired illegal immigrant Cindy Nava in June to help craft the committee’s 2016 political message, allegedly in violation of federal law prohibiting foreign nationals from participating “directly or indirectly in the decision-making process” of election-related activities,” the Daily Caller reports.

Iowans Want To Deport Undocumented Immigrants, Back Donald Trump, Poll Finds

“Almost half of Iowa’s expected Republican caucus-goers favor deporting 11 million immigrants from the United States back to their home countries, according to a poll released Wednesday, conducted for Bloomberg Politics and the Des Moines Register. The controversial plan was put forward by presidential candidate Donald Trump, whom 61 percent of potential Republican voters see as a favorable candidate,” wrote.

Trump, Bush Spar Over English

“As Donald Trump continues to surge in the polls, he’s received increasing attacks from pro-amnesty rivals like Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio. In a Spanish-language address, Bush declared, ‘El hombre no es conservador,’ which–in English–translates to, ‘The man [i.e. Trump] is not conservative.’ Trump replied by asserting that if Bush wants to be a leader, ‘he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States,’” Breitbart News says.

    Illegal Alien deportation plan

    I would like to share a suggestion that once again is NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT, but that would resonate
    with the electorate.
    The Democrats are saying that deporting between 12 and 30 million illegal’s is not feasible nor is it affordable.
    Well HOGWASH… Like was done with the draft during the Vietnam War we hold a lottery requiring all those
    in the country without permission (undocumented criminal aliens and those born to parent(s) here illegally) to
    register within 180 days with the INS.
    Then a onetime lottery would be held choosing which birthdates correspond to a deportation number between 1
    and 365. Those with numbers >330 would be given a green card without the ability to become US Citizens if
    they have not committed any crime other than being in the country illegally. As a further condition of staying in
    the country they would be required to spend a number of months building the border fence. This “cheap labor”
    would reduce the cost of the fence project. And providing “amnesty for a few” (about 10%) will provide the
    incentive for all illegal’s to register. Those with lesser numbers would be given a deportation date spanning a
    five year period and would have to leave the country or surrender to the INS on or before their date. In this way
    the remaining illegal’s would either self deport, report for deportation or be subject to arrest and deportation.
    Since each illegal family member would get his/her own lottery number it can be expected that families would
    self deport if one or more had numbers under the threshold.
    I am not sure how to make Mexico pay for the fence but at least Mexicans would be building it.
    If you would like to discuss this further please don’t hesitate to give me a call or have one of your campaign
    advisors do so on your behalf.
    In closing… My Wife has always voted Democrat and had little if any interest in politics, but since your
    campaign she has for the first time joined me in watching FOX News and all the political discourse. Your
    strategy of saying it like it is, PC be damned, is just as surely having a similar effect across party lines.
    By appealing to all Americans not just Republicans or Democrats you will have the opportunity to make
    America Great Again!

      All the media uproar over the drowned 3 year old Syrian boy ignores the fact that the family had been living in Turkey for awhile. In fact, his sister in Canada told the Ottawa Citizen that she had been paying their rent for an apartment. They were not in danger in Turkey, they just didn’t like it there. They wanted to go to Germany and then try to go to Canada. Blame the father who put his family on a small overloaded rubber boat that ended up turning over. He did that, no one else.

  2. The Open Border Judges Go Misdemeanor Instead of Felony for Hiring Multiple IAs

    Multiple Misdemeanors= Felony BTW.

    This lenient treatment to organized crime American companies getting caught and being brought to court recently is offensive….if we robbed a bank would these same judges be that lenient too?
