Today’s Immigration Headlines – Sept 17, 2015

Jeh Johnson Disapproves of Sanctuary Cities

“Since the killing of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco earlier this year by a previously deported, seven-time felony illegal alien, sanctuary city policies have come under heavy scrutiny from the American public and Congress. Now, sanctuary cities have found another critic: Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. ‘It is counterproductive to public safety to have this level of resistance to working with our immigration enforcement personnel,’ Johnson said during a speech in San Francisco yesterday. ‘It is simply, in my judgement, not acceptable to have no policy of cooperation with immigration enforcement. We’re all interested in getting criminals off the streets,’” says Townhall.

Driver’s Licenses Could Be Granted to Illegal Aliens in Oklahoma

“Facing the highest rate of uninsured motorists in the country, lawmakers could add Oklahoma to a growing list of states that license undocumented immigrants in hopes that they’ll get coverage. A dozen states — including neighboring New Mexico and Colorado — now issue driver authorization cards as a tactic to reduce the number of uninsured motorists. The cards are equivalent to a typical driver’s license, but they are only given to those in the country illegally and bestow driving privileges only within a given state,” the Richmond Register states.

    An ironic story, given our open borders:


    Government of Ukraine and Aeroscraft Corporation (Aeros) announced the Ukraine-Russian border will be protected by Aeros made Elevated Early Warning Systems (EEWS), to provide the Border protection agency of Ukraine with wide area situational awareness.

    Aeros, based in California, produces a unique border surveillance integrated EEWS with expanded capabilities for persistent air and surface surveillance and target tracking/identification, while addressing mission duration and cost efficiency.

    “We and our industry partners are pleased to provide our unique integrated solution to help provide security for the people of Ukraine and increase the situational awareness for the State Border Service,” Igor Pasternak said.

    A division of Aeros, NADATS is a leader in providing a resource for integrated and cost-effective defense/security systems for persistent surveillance missions, built upon Aeros’ portfolio of aerostats, airships and elevated ground-based platforms.
