USCIS Head Under Investigation for Political Intervention in Visa Case

“U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas, who has been nominated to be the deputy secretary of Homeland Security – and who could soon run the department – is under investigation by the department’s inspector general . . . [A][source said investigators are looking into whether Mayorkas had assisted in securing an investor visa – which had previously been denied twice – on behalf of Gulf Coast Funds Management,” Reuters reports.

“Gulf Coast Funds Management is run by Anthony Rodham, the brother of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. If confirmed as deputy secretary of Homeland Security, Mayorkas would likely run the department on an acting basis following the September departure of Secretary Janet Napolitano, who is leaving to run the University of California.”

House Dems Want Amnesty Now Due to Election Year Politics

“House Democratic leaders warned Tuesday that Congress must enact immigration reform this year because the task becomes much more difficult in the 2014 election year. ‘We’ve seen how in an election year it’s very difficult to get a lot done, and that’s unfortunate,’ Rep. Xavier Becerra (Calif.), chairman of the Democratic Caucus, told reporters in the Capitol. ‘You hope that we can get things done next year, whether or not there’s an election at hand. We should be able to walk and chew gum at the same time,'” The Hill writes.

“Congress leaves Washington on Aug. 2 for a five-week August vacation. The House has scheduled only nine legislative days in September, when much of the political oxygen will be consumed by efforts to fund the federal government before the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30.”

    t is clear that Mexicans in our government, like Becerra, are leading the way for, not only the Mexican Invasion that has been going on since the 1970′s, but the continuation of the Mexican Invasion/illegal aliens by supporting it now. They want more and more Mexicans in our country so that they can get more and more power. Power they have been acquiring over the last 30-40 yrs. If you don’t believe, just go to So. CA. It use to be 8% Mexican in the 60′s-1970. It is now almost ALL Mexican. If you are a white male you can’t get a working mans job unless you speak Mexican or know someone. No job, no girlfriend, no wife, no family. What we are experiencing is a New Form of Genocide.
    This is also true in Dallas and Austin and Houston Tex. Houston Texas has more illegals than the inland empire is 3rd in the nation behind La and New York city at 600,000

    If Alejandro Mayorkas is already under investigation for any wrong doing we don’t need him to replace Janet
    Napolatano. She did not uphold our laws and was being sued by ICE and Border Patrol for keeping them from
    doing the job they were hired and sworn to do! She did much more harm than good on our illegal alien problems.
    I and I’m sure that most Americans are glad to see her leave!

    We need some one with more law enforcement experience to replace her. Someone who really believes in our
    “Rule of Law” and will work to the betterment of WE the American citizens.

    We need our borders secured. If our National Guard and our Military can protect other nations, why not put them on our borders especially our southern border where most of the illegal aliens are coming in. Plus the violence from the drug cartels and drugs being brought into our country. We have American homeowners living along that border that drastically need help. We have volunteers in some places that are helping our Border Patrol to help keep citizens
    safe. That is not right!! But our politicians turn a blind eye to their troubles. They are too busy being sympathetic
    for the illegals.

    We do not need new laws! We need new politicians that will enforce our laws we already have.
    We need border security, A better entry/exit system, Mandatory E-Verify to keep the greedy employers from
    hiring the illegals at cheaper wages, and make them hire Americans.

    Our politicians say we are a nation of immigrants. Yes ,but we are also a nation with laws that we all have to abide by. We all also know that no matter where we go in this world we have to obey their laws!

    Businesses hire cheap Mexicans to work in lawn mower jobs, restaurants, labor, then construction workers. Now the Mexicans have taken over the trucking industry in So. CA, IE. Fontana, CA, one of the biggest truck towns in So. CA. Corporations profit because of the massive numbers of Mexicans who buy there products, and now working for them, like WM & HD.

      Exactly. The amnesty push is coming from a coalition of illegals and their organizations (only in America), Big Business who wants continued access to low wage workers, and the Catholic Church which is desperate for membership.

      Every single public opinion poll shows that the majority of American citizens are against blanket amnesty. How can any country be secure when it lets in anyone who wants to waltz across its borders without any scrutiny?
      And indeed no other country in the world does–including Mexico!

      That should tell us everything we need to know about borders and national security.

    I vote for immigration reform, why because those are immigrants that they are here for years, the.pay taxes, they don’t claim them, the expend or buy more than other,. This is a convenient step for everyone, why they will have a car they need insurance, they need to buy homes your department will get more money for legalization documents, they will go on panes to see there families, they will expend money on airline tickets, some of them will be opening new small co. To give jobs, the Economy will grow faster, we’ll on top of all of this this country is funded in God Believes, means this is a freedom of so each country build up from immigrants. Since 1940’s please To whom may concern, read under need the statu of Liberty writing and go from there, Thanks for you time and consideration, Mrs. Salas
