$1 Billion Later, Only 1 of 94 Immigration Forms Digital

“Heaving under mountains of paperwork, the government has spent more than $1 billion trying to replace its antiquated approach to managing immigration with a system of digitized records, online applications and a full suite of nearly 100 electronic forms. A decade in, all that officials have to show for the effort is a single form that’s now available for online applications and a single type of fee that immigrants pay electronically. The 94 other forms can be filed only with paper,” the Washington Post reports.

Illegal Alien Gang Member Assaults Officer

“An illegal immigrant MS-13 gang member the Obama administration had released on bond committed an unprovoked attack on a sheriff’s deputy, slugging the deputy as he worked on a traffic report while sitting in his car, the Frederick County, Maryland, sheriff’s department said Friday,” the Washington Times reports.

“Jose Misael Reyes-Reyes, 18, had been arrested in May on weapons charges and in June on charges of malicious destruction of property, but federal immigration authorities had left him free on bond while he awaited a deportation hearing, the sheriff’s office said.”

Refugee Issue Tips Croatia Election

“Croatia’s conservative opposition won the country’s first election since it joined the European Union in 2013, partial results from Sunday’s election showed, but its narrow victory meant lengthy coalition talks were likely to follow in the next days or weeks. The new government will have to nurture a tentative economic recovery after six years of recession and deal with thousands of migrants from the Middle East streaming through the tiny Adriatic state on their way to western and northern Europe,” reports.

Two Shootings, Different Media Reaction

“What can we learn from these two tragic shootings? Race largely determines whether Obama comments on pending criminal cases such as those of Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown or keeps silent about such cases as the murder of Kate Steinle. If Professor Henry Louis Gates had been white and the arresting officer black, there would have been no beer summit. Obama would have kept mum if Trayvon Martin had been white or had successfully killed George Zimmerman and survived their fight — or had been shot in a fight by another African-American. A typical weekend bloodbath in Chicago, Baltimore, or Detroit earns no presidential editorialization,” says Victor Davis Hanson.

    Blacks and whites had a totally different reaction to the case of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates. Lots of blacks made comments like Gates was “arrested for breaking into his own home”, and the white woman passerby who made the call to the cops was vilified and subject to death threats.

    The facts are simple. Gates was unable to open his front door for some reason, lost keys, stuck, it was never clear. He and another man broke the door open. The passerby calls the cops on a possible suspicious incident but when the cop shows up, Gates refuses to show an ID and won’t come out to talk and tells the cop that he’s only being asked because he’s a black man in America. How did the cop know it wasn’t a real burglar. From there it escalated to the point where a crowd was gathering and Gates was subsequently arrested.

    Whites in general said just show your ID and say thanks for checking on my property. That’s what a reasonable person does. Gates had a chip on his shoulder and refused to cooperate. Our president called the arrest “stupid” but admitted he did not know the facts. Gates made noises about a suit but never did. Perhaps something to do with the fact that he gave an interview to a black magazine a couple days after the arrest and claimed he was so frail that day he was using a cane. Then cellphone video comes out showing him running around on the porch, no cane, and yelling at the cops.

      From the start you are completely wrong you can.t just generalize and say all whites and all blacks when that is not true…….you can have a brilliant smart and sophisticated African American and a White guy that is uneducated, rude, and a criminal……and both would react differently in addition to their ages…………..

      May be just may be the lady did not like that guy……don’t you think it is odd he lives there in the same neighborhood and the lady calls the cops on him?…..maybe the lady is racist…….who knows…..or just simply nothing about race and just don;t like him or may be just she is blind……from the distance….you never know……

      But your feedback has the same mentality and attitude of Gates…………think about it….

        She didn’t know him, genius. She was jogging. That is why she called. Who thought OJ was not guilty in spite of a mountain of evidence, including dna. Instead it turned into the whole LAPD out to convict him.

    Lets be frank, we have a racist and utterly unqualified degenerate at this nations highest office in the White House. Both BO and “The Mooch”, have continually milked U.S. taxpayers with their extravagant entertainment and travel, and the extremely asinine dereliction of duty and disregard of exorbitant waste they’ve perpetuated. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE for WE THE PEOPLE????????????????????????????????????
