America’s Senator Warns of Post-Election Sellout

Senator Jeff Sessions released a statement on Friday that warned of the dangerous time following the election when politicians feel free to take actions against the wishes of the voters, since the public’s memories are often short.

Obama has drawn back for the time being from his promise of an executive amnesty, largely in the hope that Democrat Senators in red states might benefit in November.

The big Democrat brain trust had apparently thought that amnesty for millions of foreign lawbreakers would be accepted by stupid-generous Americans, but the mood of the country didn’t support that idea. For one thing, the jobs-poor economy has made many citizens pessimistic that the changes might be permanent and foreign workers were cited as one cause of the unemployment.

In addition, citizens became unsettled at the sight of the open border allowing thousands of illegal alien children (plus their families) to flood in and with the hope of receiving maximum free stuff from the US welfare system. Border anarchy angered voters, as politicians learned when they visited their districts over the August recess. An August Rasmussen poll found that 53 percent of voters believed the illegal alien kids should not be allowed to attend American schools.

So the obvious time for Obama to jam through an illegitimate, unconstitutional amnesty creating millions of future Democrats is after the election.

Here’s the press release from Senator Sessions’ office:

Sessions Denounces Senate Dems for Colluding with WH to Implement Exec Amnesty Post-Election, September 5, 2014

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today after a Politico report about Senate Democrats’ continued support for the President’s planned executive amnesty, modified only by their desire to alter the timing until after the election:

“A development today reported by Politico ought to send shudders down the spine of those who care about our representative system of government. In an article entitled ‘More Senate Democrats urge Obama to delay immigration order,’ we learn that Senate Democrats—instead of opposing the President’s executive amnesty—urge him to issue it after they face voters in November. As one office relayed to Politico: ‘Obama should use his executive authority to make fixes to the immigration system, but after the November elections.’

The only thing that is more shocking than Senate Democrats’ support for the President’s planned executive amnesty is the cravenness of asking him to proceed beginning the day after the midterms. Once again, powerful politicians are colluding with powerful interest groups to deny you, the American citizen, the protection of your laws and your voice in government. They don’t care what you want, or what you think—they scorn and mock our good and decent citizens for wishing their laws to be enforced.

Never in recent memory has the divide between the everyday citizen and the political elite been as wide as it is now. Continue reading this article

Illegal Alien Kids Stretch Budgets for School Districts

The federal government continues to redistribute illegal alien children around the country where local schools are forced to pay for their special extended needs beyond mere classroom education. A recent estimate from FAIR puts the price tag at $761 million for this school year, but that amount does not include a myriad of associated costs.

The Washington Times did a front-page story for Thursday’s paper with some analysis of available information about how many kids and where in America they have been dumped.

One county reports that up to half of the kids have experienced severe psychological trauma, which will show up in behavioral problems if it is not treated soon. However, it’s likely some of the traumatized kids speak some Indian language like Kanjobal, Quiche or Ixil and psychologists conversant in those languages are rare to none. So education is the least of the problems such schools face.

Illegal border children taxing resources inside U.S. schools, By S.A. Miller and Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, September 3, 2014

Border surge kids stretch budgets, need help with English, remedial education

Central American children may be surging across the southwest border, but their effect is felt in school districts across the country — and nowhere more than in Alexandria, Virginia, where federal authorities this year placed 205 in a city of fewer than 150,000 people.

The children could increase the school-age population in the county by more than 1 percent, marking a significant influx of students likely to need intense help with English and other remedial education programs.

No longer just a border problem, the surge is now an issue for officials in communities throughout the country, where 126 counties or cities have at least 50 children, almost all of them school age, who have been placed with relatives or foster families within their jurisdictions.

“It challenges us every day,” said Scott Kizner, superintendent of schools in Harrisonburg, Virginia. “A lot of these children require special services.”

With the school year gearing up, districts are grappling with the situation. One county reported that as many as half of the children from the border surge have experienced major psychological trauma, either from gang violence in their home countries or hardships such as hunger and rape during their journey to the U.S.

“We have seen kids who are traumatized by violence or being witnesses to violence,” said Patricia Chiancone, an outreach counselor at the Prince George’s County Public Schools’ international student counseling office.

More common are educational struggles. School districts say the children lag behind in English language skills and trail their peers in core subjects. Continue reading this article

Father of Son Killed by Illegal Alien Campaigns for Strict Law Enforcement for Public Safety

Don Rosenberg lost his son Drew in 2010 when the young man was struck on his motorcycle by an illegal alien who ran over him three times.

In the following years, Rosenberg has campaigned for traditional law enforcement to protect public safety, including standard licensing for citizens not illegals and continuing the impounds of vehicles driven by illegals in Los Angeles.

Below, Don Rosenberg holds a photo of his late son Drew, who was killed by an illegal alien driver.

Rosenberg recently wrote a letter to President Obama which began:

Dear Mr. President:

I trust you had a wonderful birthday. For me, my family and hundreds of thousands of other Americans we will never have another wonderful birthday. We will never have another wonderful holiday and in fact we will never have another wonderful day. Yes, we smile, we laugh but it is a façade to allow us to be a part of the world. We try to forget but it is impossible. Every day we hear a song, see a photo, drive by a familiar place or receive a piece of mail addressed to them that brings it all back. We have all lost a child, a spouse, a parent a sibling or a partner to someone who entered the country illegally.

He made the letter public which has gotten a bit of attention from the news media, including an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News:

The Washington Times also reported on the Rosenberg case:

Father of man killed by illegal immigrant demands president visit son’s grave, By Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, September 2, 2014

Calls immigration policies politically motivated as president weighs executive action

The father of a man killed by an illegal immigrant in a car crash has challenged President Obama to visit his son’s grave before declaring any executive action halting deportations.

In a letter that Don Rosenberg sent last month to Mr. Obama through top officials at the Homeland Security Department, the grieving father said his son Drew might be alive had the federal government deported illegal immigrants who had run-ins with the law.

“My son and all of the others are considered collateral damage in the quest for votes and campaign contributions,” he wrote. “Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime.”

Mr. Rosenberg’s son was killed while riding his motorcycle in 2010 when Roberto Galo, an illegal immigrant, made an illegal turn and crashed into him. Mr. Rosenberg said the man, who was driving without a license, ran over his son three times as he tried to flee the scene.

The grieving father wrote the letter as Mr. Obama was pondering more unilateral steps on immigration. The president said the moves are justified by a broken system and the need to keep families together in the U.S.

But Mr. Rosenberg said the immigration debate focuses too heavily on illegal immigrant families and not enough on American families affected by the actions of illegal immigrants. Continue reading this article

Geert Wilders Reminds Dutch Parliament that Islam Is Still a Threat

In the early 1930s, Winston Churchill warned against the coming threat of Hitler, German re-armament and the Nazi party. Today’s prescient politician with an eye on future danger is a member of the Dutch Parliament, Geert Wilders, who has been alerting the West about hostile Islam for years.

One action that got Wilders in trouble (specifically a trial for committing free speech) was producing a 15-minute documentary film, Fitna, that matched verses from the Koran with acts of terror:

He recently reiterated his arguments against Muslim immigration to his colleagues:

Geert Wilders Speech before Dutch Parliament, September 4, 2014

Madam Speaker, actually I was expecting flowers from you. I am celebrating an anniversary these days. Exactly ten years and two days ago, I left a party whose name I cannot immediately remember. During these ten years and two days. I have been much criticized. Most importantly for always saying the same thing.

My critics are right. Indeed, my message had been the same during all these years. And today, I will repeat the same message about Islam again. For the umpteenth time. As I have been doing for ten years and two days.

I have been vilified for my film Fitna. And not just vilified, but even prosecuted. Madam Speaker, while not so many years ago, everyone refused to broadcast my film Fitna, we can today watch Fitna 2, 3, 4 and 5 daily on our television screens. It is not a clash of civilizations that is going on, but a clash between barbarism and civilization.

The Netherlands has become the victim of Islam because the political elite looked away. Here, in these room, they are all present, here and also in the Cabinet, all these people who looked away. Every warning was ignored.

As a result, also in our country today, Christians are being told: “We want to murder you all”. Jews receive death threats. Swastika flags at demonstrations, stones go through windows, molotov cocktails, Hitler salutes are being made, macabre black ISIS flags wave in the wind, we hear cries, such as “Fck the Talmud”, on the central square in Amsterdam.

Indeed, Madam Speaker, this Summer, Islam came to us.

In all naivety, Deputy Prime Minister Asscher states that there is an “urgent demand” from Muslims to “crack down” on this phenomenon. Last Friday, in its letter to Parliament, the Cabinet wrote that jihadists are hardly significant. They are called a “sect”, a “small” group.

This is what those who look away wish, these deniers of the painful truth for 10 years and two days, the ostrich brigade Rutte 2.

But the reality is different. According to a study, 73% of all Moroccans and Turks in the Netherlands are of the opinion that those who go to Syria to fight in the jihad are “heroes”. People whom they admire.

And this is not a new phenomenon. Thirteen years ago, 3,000 people died in the attacks of 9/11. We remember the images of burning people jumping from the twin towers. Then, also, three-quarters of the Muslims in the Netherlands condoned this atrocity. That is not a few Muslims, but hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the Netherlands condoning terrorism and saying jihadists are heroes. I do not make this up. It has been investigated. It is a ticking time bomb. Continue reading this article

Economy Update: 'Middle Class Is Actually Shrinking'

Business reporter Stuart Varney appeared on Fox News Thursday morning to comment upon the new unemployment figures:

STUART VARNEY: “The numbers are pretty good, I gotta say, those headline numbers hit you pretty good. But you dig a little deeper just beneath the surface and you see that not everybody is sharing in this recovery… What you’ve got is steady, not spectacular, growth.

Now the other side of the coin, the other side of the headlines, not everybody is sharing in this, prosperity is not widespread. You’ve got wages which are static, you’ve got a lot of part-time jobs being created, not full-time well paid jobs but part-time stuff. Youth unemployment very very high, the middle class is actually shrinking. So you’ve got, dare I say, a dichotomy, between what you’re seeing in the headlines in the official numbers and how it actually feels on the ground, the two are different things…

The other side of the coin is American corporations are frankly the best run in the world. They’re making do with far less, they’re squeezing more profit and they’re using technology in the best possible way. That’s why you’ve got Wall Street at an all time high.”

“Technology” means more computers, automation and robotics, and therefore fewer humans are required to accomplish the work. Improved technology is one of the three factors crushing the American worker: smart machines, outsourcing and immigration.

Below, a government chart shows how productivity and employment have moved apart in recent years.

If Republicans were smart, they would campaign on the Obama’s anemic recovery, hampered by over-regulation and other Democrat afflictions. In particular, GOPers should denounce amnesty as a stab in the back to American workers and focus on protecting American jobs.

The downward trend for workers in the workplace has not gone unnoticed. PBS Newshour reported an interesting poll on Labor Day that showed how pessimistic citizens have become about making a living: 71 percent say they believe the economy has permanently changed for the worse. Interestingly, part of the blame is placed on “foreign workers,” so Americans are aware of the government-produced demographic changes.

U.S. optimism lags behind economic gains, study finds, PBS Newhour, September 1, 2014

JUDY WOODRUFF: We turn now to another take on today’s economic picture.

Jeffrey Brown has that story.

JEFFREY BROWN: For many months now, the number of new jobs created has risen and the jobless rate has fallen substantially, all part of what looks like a slow, but steady recovery.

But a new study finds that Americans are hardly upbeat; 71 percent say they believe the economy has permanently changed for the worse. And that’s compared to 49 percent who thought so just after the economic crisis had hit.

Political scientist Cliff Zukin of Rutgers University worked on the survey, and joins us now.

Welcome to you.

Well, let’s start with the big picture, this idea that more people feel there’s been permanent damage now than even a few years right after the recovery. They’re more pessimistic now?

CLIFF ZUKIN, Rutgers University: They’re more pessimistic now.

I think they’re unhappy and I think they’re anxious. What we found is that the notion that there’s been a permanent change in the economy has grown, not receded, as we have now hit almost five years of continuous growth. And the key to understanding this is, it’s just not showing up in their personal life. Continue reading this article

FAIR Estimates Cost for Alien Kids' Education at $761 Million This School Year

FAIR has produced an estimate of the cost of illegal alien kids dumped onto American schools and social services — $761 million, including a map of state costs:

Fox reported the story on Tuesday:

It’s good to have a specific estimate of the education costs, however that’s just the tip of the iceberg. While an urban Mexican child probably has attended school, speaks Spanish (rather than Kanjobal) and knows how a pencil works, the Central American kiddies may have none of those advantages. The Centrals need to be brought up to zero (if possible), and that will cost a lot of American tax dollars.

Mayor Judith Kennedy of the overwhelmed city of Lynn, Massachusetts remarked in an August 27 CIS panel:

A lot of the children gave a birthdate of January 1st. A lot of them could not sign their names; they had to sign their names with an X. And a lot of them were illiterate, not only in English, but also in Spanish, and spoke a tribal dialect, a mountain dialect, so it really made it difficult to place these students in any kind of a classroom setting.

In addition to being educationally deprived, many of the kids will arrive psychologically damaged after the hazardous journey north. One indication: some parents give birth control pills to girls because of the likelihood they will be raped. Plus, there are kidnap gangs en route and sometimes kids are killed because it’s dangerous to travel on the top of freight trains.

Trauma can have long-lasting effects. The young “Lost Boys” of Sudan endured great hardship in their long trek to escape the civil war at home. As a result, an estimated 80 to 90 percent of Lost Boys suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, which can lead to substance abuse, depression and crime according to an expert on the condition.

The current border-crossing kids will need lots of special services, including expensive psychological treatment for trauma, and La Raza types will demand it if adequate welfare goodies are not forthcoming.

Many of the Central American kids will drop out of school because the latin culture does not stress scholarship as a top value the way Chinese values do. School sounds like a swell idea in the abstract, but Centrals don’t understand the daily grind of studying as a prerequisite to success.

And because there will be even fewer jobs for unskilled foreigners in the near future, many of today’s needy kiddies will turn to crime in a few years to get by. Some of the teens already have gang tattoos, so there will be plenty of opportunity to hook up with experts.

Back to the near-term educational cost estimate: it’s likely that most of the new stuff for foreigners will mean cutbacks in what American students get at school.

Cost of educating new class of illegal immigrant minors estimated at over $760M, Fox News, September 2, 2014

A new report puts the price of educating the thousands of illegal immigrant children who recently crossed into the U.S. at a whopping $761 million this school year — as some school systems push for the feds to pick up the tab.

The estimate comes from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which issued a report on the 37,000 “unaccompanied minors” – who mainly are from Central America – after analyzing data from the Department of Health and Human Services and education funding formulas in all 50 states.

The numbers underscore the concerns critics have raised for months about the burden the surge is putting on local school systems and governments.

“We’re not doing American students any favors by dumping in tens of thousands of additional illegal alien children,” FAIR’s Bob Dane told Fox News.

The report breaks down the costs by state. The biggest impact reportedly will be seen in California, Texas, Florida and New York. The Empire State leads the list with a bill of more than $147 million. Continue reading this article

Student Visa Fail: 6,000 Missing Are of 'Heightened Concern'

Student visas are the perfect scam for any youngish-looking person to enter the United States for whatever reason: simply enroll in some sort of educational institution from genuine accredited universities to low-rent visa mills, then never show up for classes and disappear into stupid-open America. The current estimate is that 6,000 foreigners considered concerning have taken advantage of this “system” among 58,000 visa overstayers this year overall.

Foreign students are compliant walking wallets in the mind of the educational industrial complex, currently adding $24 billion in easy money to the economy. As a result, education administrators insist on open borders for cash-carrying foreign students.

Shortly after the 9/11 attack on America, Senator Dianne Feinstein suggested a six-month moratorium on student visas but the college cabal came down on her like a ton of transcripts. She quickly relented as long as better security was promised.

Which leads us to today and the September 10 mindset of current America, where all the lessons of the 9/11 terrorist attack have apparently been forgotten.

Below, in 2012 Saudi Khalid Aldawsari was convicted of a terror plot in Texas after entering the US on a student visa.

Lost in America: Visa Program Struggles to Track Missing Foreign Students, ABC News, by Brian Ross and Matthew Mosk, September 2, 2014

The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of more than 6,000 foreign nationals who entered the United States on student visas, overstayed their welcome, and essentially vanished — exploiting a security gap that was supposed to be fixed after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

“My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” said Peter Edge, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official who oversees investigations into visa violators. “Some of them could be here to do us harm.”

Homeland Security officials disclosed the breadth of the student visa problem in response to ABC News questions submitted as part of an investigation into persistent complaints about the nation’s entry program for students.

ABC News found that immigration officials have struggled to keep track of the rapidly increasing numbers of foreign students coming to the U.S. — now in excess of one million each year. The immigration agency’s own figures show that 58,000 students overstayed their visas in the past year. Of those, 6,000 were referred to agents for follow-up because they were determined to be of heightened concern.

“They just disappear,” said Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. “They get the visas and they disappear.”

Coburn said since the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, 26 student visa holders have been arrested in the U.S. on terror-related charges.

Tightening up the student visa program was one of the major recommendations made by the 9/11 Commission, after it was determined that the hijacker who flew Flight 77 into the Pentagon, Hani Hanjour, had entered the U.S. on a student visa but never showed up for school.

Edge said ICE agents are trying to locate every one of the 6,000 missing students, but acknowledged that “we really have a lot more work to do” to tighten up the student visa program.

Despite repeated concerns raised by Congress, federal immigration officials have also continued to grant schools certification to accept overseas applicants even if the schools lack accreditation, state certification, or any obvious measure of academic rigor.

There are now more than 9,000 schools on the government approved list. The list includes such top flight American colleges as Harvard and Yale, but it also includes 86 beauty schools, 36 massage schools and nine schools that teach horseshoeing. Foreign students can enter the U.S. on a visa to study acupuncture, hair braiding, or join academies that focus on tennis and golf.

Once the student arrives in the U.S., it is up to the schools to keep track of the visa-holder’s whereabouts — and report to the government if they repeatedly miss class.

That is a serious concern, Coburn said, because a number of for-profit schools appear to have been operating with a primary goal of selling visas, not educating students.

“We know we have a lot of non-accredited universities that are using this system to bring people in, collect money, and not educate them at all,” said Coburn, who is part of a bi-partisan group of senators that has been trying to tighten controls on student visas. “To me, it’s a mess.” Continue reading this article

RefugeeResettlementWatch's Ann Corcoran Is Interviewed by the Daily Caller

What a nice surprise to see Ann Corcoran of RefugeeResettlementWatch being interviewed by the ever-curious Ginni Thomas at the The title of the piece is tied to Labor Day, but the discussion is really about the refugee system as a whole and how shielded it is from any oversight from the American people.

Watch the 22-minute video.

Important points covered: the United Nations chooses the refugees to be resettled in America, citizens’ taxes pay the bill not churchie do-gooders and how the definition of “refugee” is being redefined to suit open-borders extremists.

Also shocking is how resettlement organizations like the taxpayer-funded Catholic Charities lobby for the inclusion of more Muslims at a time when Christians are suffering genocide in the Middle East from Muslims.

It’s too bad Corcoran didn’t have enough time to examine the failure of Somali refugees to assimilate, but she did briefly discuss the cultural mismatch shown by the case of the Burmese Muslim Esar Met who raped and murdered a 7-year-old Christian girl just a month after he arrived.

Below, incoming Somali refugees learn the fine points of operating a modern stove.

Former Liberal: Obama’s Immigration Plan Amounts To A War On Workers, Daily Caller, August 31, 2014

As Labor Day looms, President Obama’s immigration policy looks to become a war on American workers. Without prioritizing who’s allowed to come to America, former liberal Ann Corcoran says “the American worker loses. The numbers are too high. We can’t assimilate this many people.”

Marylander Ann Corcoran, who says she was “tea party” before the movement existed, has written a daily blog, as a volunteer activist, at Refugee Resettlement Watch for the last seven years to inform and engage citizens.

Refugee Resettlement Watch is a small but growing daily blog focused on how the government has resettled over 3 million refugees since 1975. Without any financial backing, she is doing what the media and Congress have failed to do – tracking how a federal program is functioning. Corcoran, who has published over 2,500 posts now, says “the open border left wants no borders.” And those involved with resettling refugees with the U.N. and Washington want no scrutiny of this program.

American-bound refugees are selected by the U.N. Then the State Department and the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement, are tasked to operate with nine major federal contractors who monopolize the program and contract work to 300 subcontractors to place refugees throughout the nation. According to Corcoran, HHS has now identified growing “pockets of resistance.” Ever vigilant, HHS sends another contractor, “Welcoming America,” to set communities’ “minds right.” Continue reading this article

Diverse Muslim Immigration Has Made Britain a Terror Exporter

How the nation of Churchill has fallen. Once a bastion of freedom and the ideals of Western civilization, the foolish embrace of multiculturalism has weakened its belief in foundational principles and opened its doors to barbaric enemies.

Dale Hurd reports on the startling cultural degradation, ranging from sharia-run neighborhoods to British soldier Lee Rigby being slaughtered on a London street in the name of Islam and young English girls being systematically abused by Muslim rape gangs as authorities looked the other way.

In 1961, the Muslims residing in England and Wales numbered only 50,000, just .1 percent of the population of those nations. Unwise immigration caused the damage.

A recent study found that white British children will be outnumbered in state school classrooms in England within 23 years — so quickly has immigration transformed the nation’s demographic make-up.

Now British-born and -raised Muslims are active jihadists spreading Allah’s special chaos in the Middle East. Authorities fear their violent return and recently increased the terror threat assessment to Severe, the second-highest level.

Obviously the lesson of Britain for Western nations is to end Muslim immigration completely yesterday.

How Britain Became a Global Exporter of Terrorism, CBN News, by Dale Hurd, August 29, 2014

LONDON – No one who has been paying attention to the growth of radical Islam in Britain should have been surprised that the terrorist who stood over murdered American journalist James Foley had a London accent.

Over a thousand British Muslims are now fighting for the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. And more are joining every day.

“The key thing to realize about British fighters in Syria is they’re not there to take a back seat role. They are very much at the forefront of this conflict,” Shiraz Maher, an expert at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, said.

Exporter of Terror
Britain is now a major exporter of terrorists, the result of multiculturalism. There have been warning signs for years.

Eight years ago, CBN News showed viewers Muslims protesting in London against the Mohammed cartoons and chanting “Jihad is on its way.”

Today, Britain has functioning Sharia courts and Sharia patrols enforcing Islamic law on the streets.

Islamic halal food is everywhere. And Islam is today the fastest growing religion in the United Kingdom. Continue reading this article

Mexican Cartels Increase Human Smuggling Portfolio

The Mexican crime syndicates may be murderous thugs but they didn’t make billions of dollars by being stupid about business. When they saw the market changing in their area of operations because of America’s weakened border enforcement, they decided to adjust their strategy accordingly.

The cartels saw Obama’s amnesty chatter as creating a potential for profit and promoted their kid-carry business as a result.

Unfortunately for America, the cartels’ increased emphasis on people smuggling makes the terrorism threat more concerning, since ISIS has $2 billion in cash. The price tag on transporting a Central American to the US runs from $5,000 to $10,000 these days. Obviously a dangerous fellow or group from the Middle East, perhaps carrying a WMD, could be made to pay far more.

The major cartels may realize that a major terrorist attack and resulting crackdown might be bad for their business overall, but all it would take is one small group of Mexicans to help smuggle jihadists across the border.

For some cartels, human smuggling has taken priority over drugs, Dallas News, by Alfredo Corchado, August 29, 2014

EL PASO — With recent waves of Central Americans seeking to reach the U.S., human smuggling along the Texas border has, at least for the moment, become more lucrative than smuggling illicit drugs for criminal organizations such as the Gulf and Zetas cartels, according to two U.S. intelligence officials.

U.S. agents tracking the money flow as part of the anti-smuggling Operation Coyote say that in just over six months, human smuggling has generated nearly $50 million, mostly in the area around the Mexican border city of Reynosa. The revenue has helped sustain the Gulf cartel during a bloody internal split, the officials said. Some factions of the Gulf cartel are now working with the Sinaloa cartel, they said, and another faction has joined forces with the Zetas, increasing violence and making the situation along the border more perilous.

“I’m not suggesting that the cartels have abandoned their drug-smuggling activities,” said Oscar Hagelsieb, assistant special agent-in-charge of Homeland Security Investigations in El Paso. “But with all the money to be made in human smuggling, they clamped their claws into it as well. Big time.

“Without a doubt, there are Gulf cartel links. We’ve been able to trace millions of dollars going into the Reynosa area. You cannot operate a criminal venture of that magnitude without the cartels having a major role in it.”

He said that U.S. authorities have identified “key operatives” of other cartels in the region “that are now heavily involved in alien smuggling.” Continue reading this article

Government Secrecy about Dumped Alien Kids Is Investigated

Now self-liberated from CBS News, ace investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson is digging up facts on important topics like government secrecy.

The feds are particularly silent about the whereabouts of tens of thousands of illegal alien children it has redistributed all around the country, she has learned. The little lawbreakers have privacy rights, the bureaucrats argue.

Nobody cares about their individual identity, but taxpayers have a right to the facts about where the foreigners are being housed, educated and at what cost. Parents need to know whether they need to move their kids to private school if the public classrooms become too academically compromised by diversity.

Plus, there’s no guarantee that the dumped kids will be properly immunized against communicable disease by the time they appear in America’s classrooms. If the kids don’t get immediate first-class school services, then La Raza and the usual suspects will start complaining about anti-hispanic racism. Public health will be a lesser concern compared with jamming foreign kids into classrooms ASAP.

In the video below, amnesty hucksters claim that kiddies will be endangered by hateful racist Americans if shelter locations are revealed. In fact, citizen safety is far more imperiled by the so-called children, most of whom are teenaged (and older) males, some with gang tattoos.

Investigating Washington: Is the government sharing enough information about ‘unaccompanied alien children’ with the public?, By Sharyl Attkisson, ABC7 WJLA Washington, August 29, 2014

WASHINGTON (WJLA) – Hundreds of demonstrators marched outside the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency on Thursday, demanding Congressional action on immigration reform. Many were arrested.

This comes as some states continue to struggle with what to do with the influx of unaccompanied children coming across the border.

The government has abruptly shut down operations at Fort Sill in Oklahoma and two other military bases that sheltered more than 7,700 minors the government refers to as “unaccompanied alien children.”

Thousands have been transferred to 150 shelters around the country, mostly group homes run by nonprofits. But try to find out exactly where and the government won’t answer—not the public or reporters, not even members of Congress. Continue reading this article

Washington Lawmakers Find Voters Are Angry about Immigration Anarchy

The August Congressional recess is nearly over and many elected members apparently got an earful from constituents. And it’s not surprising that voters would be furious since the brazen extent of Democrat lawlessness has been on full display, particularly with its open-borders kiddie fiasco.

It is clear to anyone paying attention that the Democrats will break any law to create a permanent liberal majority by importing a new big-government-preferring people, because liberals cannot convince Americans to embrace their left-wing issues of equal outcomes rather than opportunity, maximum free stuff and rejection of competence.

The school tsunami has been building over recent weeks, with an estimated 50,000 illegal alien children currently being parceled out by the federal government across the country for free-to-them education and a generous array of freebies.

Did the Obama administration think that media sob stories about suffering chldren would shut down objections to the massive import of young welfare users? Or did too many gazillion thousands of needy foreigners show up? Reports about disease took hold in the public mind, and the scruffy kids looked more like sickness spreaders than adorable moppets clutching teddy bears.

Below, a crowded government flophouse for illegal aliens in Brownsville.

At any rate, polls show the public’s rejection of open borders for freeloaders. Rasmussen pollsters found 53 percent of voters thought the illegal kids should not be allowed to attend local schools.

The tyrannical executive amnesty to turn America hispanic Democrat is opposed as well. An IBD/TIPP poll found 63 percent opposed an executive order to “slow deportation of undocumented immigrants by providing them with legal protection and work permits” (aka Amnesty).

Seventy percent of Americans believe illegal immigration threatens traditional culture, according to a recent IPSOS/Reuters survey.

The Polling Company found a desire among the public for enforcement, with 81 percent of citizens favoring the protection of American workers.

So yes, the citizens are riled up that the country’s immigration laws and borders are not being enforced, particularly at a time when jihadist enemies would love to attack America.

In town halls, U.S. lawmakers hear voter anger over illegal migrants, Reuters, August 28, 2014

(Reuters) – When Republican Rep. Jeb Hensarling sat down with colleagues and constituents at a recent Chamber of Commerce lunch in Dallas, the first question he faced was whether Congress planned to address immigration policy and a burgeoning border crisis.

“I’m supposed to do this in 30 seconds?” he joked, noting the issue’s complexity. While he was optimistic about long-term prospects for dealing with border security and immigration, he said, “between now and the end of this Congress, I’m a little less sanguine about it.”

It has been a question heard repeatedly by lawmakers this month in “town hall” district meetings punctuated – and sometimes dominated – by concerns and angry outbursts over immigration policy and the crisis caused by a flood of child migrants at the southwestern border in recent months.

Those summer town halls have provided lawmakers a first-hand glimpse of growing discontent among Americans over U.S. immigration policy. Seventy percent of Americans – including 86 percent of Republicans – believe undocumented immigrants threaten traditional U.S. beliefs and customs, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted in mid-July.

Those fears have been exacerbated by the recent wave of illegal child migrants from Central America. An issue that had been simmering is now hotting up as voters prepare to go to the polls in congressional elections due in November.

The anger and frustration expressed in the town halls suggests there will be a fierce debate when U.S. lawmakers return to Washington on Sept. 8 and take up proposals to address a flood of child migrants crossing the southwestern U.S. border.

While conservative anger has not approached the levels seen during the healthcare debate in August 2009, when town halls across the country were frequently disrupted, members of both parties have been confronted on the issue.

From border states like Texas to less likely hot spots like Oregon, Colorado, and New York, Democratic and Republican lawmakers have heard a steady stream of questions and complaints from voters – most pushing for a crackdown on illegal immigration and some worried about what they see as Washington’s inaction.

“I hear it everywhere I go,” said Oregon Republican Greg Walden, who travels the country in his role as chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

“The anger is palpable,” Hensarling, a six-term conservative congressman who is often identified by colleagues as a possible next Speaker of the House, told Reuters. Continue reading this article
