Immigration Headlines – Apr 11, 2016

Shuttered Pakistani Diploma Mill Generated Thousands of Fake Degrees

“In the year since Pakistani investigators raided Axact, a Karachi-based software company accused of raking in hundreds of millions of dollars with a vast Internet degree scam, Pakistani and American investigators have been busy dismantling its operations. Fourteen Axact employees, including the chief executive, await trial on charges of fraud, extortion and money laundering. Bank accounts in Pakistan and the United States have been frozen. Investigators have uncovered a tangled web of corporate entities — dozens of shell companies and associates, from Caribbean tax havens to others in Delaware, Dubai and Singapore — used to funnel illicit earnings back to Pakistan,” the New York Times says.

Border Patrol Orders Reach Absurdity

“Border Patrol agents have been ordered to release dripping-wet illegal immigrants at the Rio Grande unless they actually see them climbing out of the river, creating what amounts to “an open border with Mexico,” the chief of the agents’ labor union told Congress in new testimony last week. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told the House Judiciary Committee that agents were given the orders verbally soon after President Obama laid out plans for limiting immigration enforcement in 2014,” the Washington Times reports.

Taiwanese Immigrant Suspected in China Spy Case

“Over the weekend a sensational spy saga appeared in the media, one that the U.S. Navy managed to keep out of the headlines for the last eight months. The Department of the Navy revealed that a career officer has been sitting in a brig in Norfolk, Virginia for months, suspected of espionage on behalf of a foreign power,” The Observer reports.

“Mr. Lin’s background, as an immigrant from Taiwan, may have rendered him vulnerable to exploitation by Chinese spies. Only a few years ago, navy public affairs ran a puff piece about the rising young officer, a feel-good story about an immigrant who worshipped us from afar—”I grew up believing that all the roads in America lead to Disneyland,” Mr. Lin explained—and became a patriot for his adopted homeland. Yet it seems his real loyalties were not to this country and Mr. Lin’s saga is unlikely to lead to anything as happy as Disneyland.”

Ann Coulter Was Right About the Media

“The Dallas television affiliate of CBS, owned and operated by the network, may have confirmed Ann Coulter’s claim, in Adios America, that the liberal media hides the truth about illegal immigrant criminals in America. On March 20, 2016, Dallas TV channel 11 posted the story of a man arrested for holding a woman hostage in an abandoned building in Farmers Branch, Texas, a near northern suburb of Dallas,” says Lee Cary at AmericanThinker.com.

Stop Remittances to End Illegal Immigration

“Donald Trump explains how he would persuade Mexico to pay for the wall on the southwest border: As President, he says he would tax the $25 billion in cash remittances going to Mexico annually, most of it sent by illegal aliens, according to a congressional report. This is not a new idea, but it is a very good idea. Who opposes it? The usual suspects– those who profit from illegal immigration,” Breitbart News says.

State Residency Laws May Block Illegal Aliens from School

“Immigrant children living in the U.S. without legal status have been blocked from registering for school and accessing the educational services they need, according to a report on school districts in four states by Georgetown University Law Center researchers. Such students have faced long enrollment delays and have been turned away from classrooms as the result of some districts’ arbitrary interpretations of residency rules and state laws, the researchers said,” ABC News wrote.

Boston Globe Fake Edition Highlights Trump Promises

“In a remarkable Sunday edition of The Boston Globe, the paper’s editors go all in for the fight to block GOP frontrunner Donald Trump from winning the Republican Party’s nomination. “The GOP Must Stop Trump,” blares the title of the paper’s Sunday editorial. In addition to the editorial, the editors crafted a fake “front page in Donald Trump’s America” edition of the Boston Globe dated Sunday April 9th, 2017,” Breitbart News reports.

GOP House to Get 15 Minutes to Argue Before Supreme Court

“The GOP-led House of Representatives will get its 15 minutes of fame at the Supreme Court over President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration. When the high-profile case is argued before the Supreme Court on April 18, the Republican-controlled chamber will be allotted 15 minutes of oral argument time to make its case against the Obama administration, according to a Friday order from the court,” Politico reports.

    One of the “concerns” of the Boston Globe piece on Trump was “trade wars”. The trade war has been on this country. We instituted a trade deal with South Korea in 2012. The year before that, 2011, our trade deficit with them was 13.2 billion dollars. Pretty bad, but the “cure” was worse than the disease. In 2014 our deficit with them was 25.04 billion, last year 28.32 billion, and 5.1 billion for the 1st two months of this year. The problem is we open our markets to other countries and they keep theirs effectively closed.

        I went to a conference on the Exim-Bank in Washington DC and saw something actually indeed interesting……a business man in his booth for Turnkey operations telling the Chinese to go away and not to take his material……

        I asked him what happened and said his business was hurting because of them….so you can’t really blame him to have asked the Chinese business people away….I noticed they were really rude……
