~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
On Friday, five Kenyans and 68 Somalians touched down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi after being deported U. S. immigration officials. This is the second round of deportations of illegals living in the USA from Somalia and Kenya.
Three questions: Why so few? Just the second round? Was Barack Obama one of the Kenyans deported? Okay, that last question is just me being sarcastic.
…An unnamed official told Midnimo the group of illegal immigrants were deported generally because of their immigration status.
“They were deported over immigration issues including lacking papers. We had been informed of their planned arrival,” the anonymous official said. “The Somalis will proceed to Mogadishu while Kenyans will be processed here accordingly.”
This is the second round of mostly Somali illegal immigrants who are being deported under President Trump’s administration and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The first round of deportations for Somalis included 90 illegal immigrant Somalis and two illegal immigrants from Kenya[…]
The Progressive are balking over the fact that illegal aliens have no “legal” right to representation as ruled by the9th Circuit Court of Appeals(of all courts, can you believe it?) two months ago.
In other words, illegal aliens are not entitled to American taxpayer dollars to acquire legal defense to fight deportation. Yet, as reported byThe Washington Times, taxpayer coffers in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles County, Chicago as well as Seattle are being pilfered to provide legal defense for illegal aliens.
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?
These funds are a smack in the face to American taxpayers and the President of the United States.
American taxpayers should not be picking up the tab for those who broke the law by jumping the line ahead of legal immigrants when they entered this country.
Bureaucrats backing illegals and fleecing taxpayer coffers on behalf of illegal aliens should be voted out of office.
The DNC sent a Dreamer by the name of Ofelia Valdez to a campaign event in Storm Lake, Iowa this week to entrap 2016 Republican Party primary candidate, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tx) on his immigration policies. Result: FAIL! Cruz, a non-establishment candidate was obvious prepared and responded to Valdez in a manner that the Dreamer never saw coming.
“As a DACA holder myself, I worried about whoever comes next to the presidency and what’s going to happen to people like us,” Valdez said to Cruz. “I think of myself as part of this community and you know, first day of presidency, you decide to deport, you know, people like myself, you know, it’s just very difficult to process.”Cruz took an approach that as a sovereign nation, America like all other countries has a right to defend their laws.
“Well listen, I would note, if you’re a DACA recipient, that means that you were brought here illegally, and violating the laws has consequences,” Cruz said. “And one of the problems with our broken immigration systems is that it is creating human tragedies” […]
Shortly before Christmas Eve, the Department of Homeland announced its latest dog and pony show indicating plans to deport hundreds of illegal immigrant families who entered the United States in 2014, which happens to come about just as the 2016 presidential election season gets underway.
As espoused by White House/Media Matters sock puppets and media outlets pushing the same talking points, nearly verbatim. (Coincidence? I think not.)
The nationwide campaign, to be carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents as soon as early January, would be the first large-scale effort to deport families who have fled violence in Central America, those familiar with the plan said. More than 100,000 families with both adults and children have made the journey across the southwest border since last year, though this migration has largely been overshadowed by a related surge of unaccompanied minors.
The ICE operation would target only adults and children who have already been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge[…]
As pointed out by Grumpy Opinions contributor, R. Trent:
Word I’m getting from within the ranks of ICE, is that this will be a half-hearted attempt to actually round up CentAm (Central American) families, and move them to Texas military facilities. There they will be staged for removal.
Expect low numbers to be actually grabbed up, but lots of news coverage. This will be tear jerking type coverage to be used by HRC and the Obama administration to wrench additional funding from a, so called, reluctant congress. Essentially, DHS is broke and can’t continue funding the housing of these people that they lured in, in the first place.
I hate to be a cynic, but this will probably be yet another coup pulled of by the Obama administration.
This is in addition to the recent funding to bring in 85,000 Syrians, and the CentAm countries conspiring to ship 8,500 Cubans currently backed up in Costa Rica, to the U.S. border.
Why do we still have the “Wet Foot/Dry Foot” policy for Cubans, if the Obama administration is making nice with the Castro’s?
As one who lives in a sanctuary state, I challenge the official number as provided by the Obama administration that 15 million illegal immigrants are in the United States.
With at least 8 and 10 million illegals living in New York State, maybe even the City alone that would mean that the true number of illegals in America is between 35 and 40 million people.
This promise of mass raids followed by the deportation of illegal immigrant “families” concocted by DHS is nothing more than propaganda and a half-hearted dog and pony show, i.e., presentation for the 2016 presidential election season using ICE agents and a few hundred illegals compared to the 40 million already here as props.
A new California law goes into effect on January 1, 2016 that creates a double standard for United States citizens and non-citizens in this country (aka “illegal aliens” or “undocumented aliens” or “undocumented citizens”).
No matter what state we live in, we must watch these unconstitutional laws because they spread like a cancer.
Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1343 which was authored by Assemblyman Tony Thurmond, who is obviously a Democrat.
This bill imposed a new requirement on prosecutor’s statewide, requiring prosecutors to structure pleas bargains that seek to avoid deportation of non-citizens who plead guilty to crimes committed in California.
Section 1016(3)(b) is added to the Penal Code, to read: “The prosecution, in the interests of justice, and in furtherance of the findings and declarations of Section 1016.2, shall consider the avoidance of adverse immigration consequences in the plea negotiation process as one factor in an effort to reach a just resolution.
In other words, prosecutors are REQUIRED to try and avoid a plea agreement that would lead to deportation. Illegal aliens must be given a better deal than citizens get[…]
“Since state law will now mandate that prosecutors must try to avoid a plea deal that leads to deportation, will defense attorneys or Judges be allowed to make the DDA state what consideration they gave to immigration consequences when making a plea deal? Are elected District Attorneys now going to have to put in writing office policies to implement this new law? Will citizens who commit the same crime as illegal aliens be able to claim they are being denied equal protection under the law, that their status as citizen makes them subject to harsher punishment than an illegal alien?
The reality is that any policy that turns a blind eye to illegal activities – including those that make it easier for people who have been convicted of crimes to remain in this country illegally -is a bona fide threat to public safety. “
The Department of Homeland Security verbally informed Home School Legal Defense Association that the Romeike family is being granted indefinite deferred action status. The Department told HSLDA that this meant the order of removal would not be acted on and that the Romeikes could stay.
HSLDA Chairman Michael Farris was thrilled.
‘This is an incredible victory that I can only credit to Almighty God. I also want to thank those who spoke up on this issue—including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made a huge impact. What an amazing turnaround—in just 24 hours,’ he said.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court issued a denial of the Romeike family’s petition for certiorari, sparking an immediate and unprecedented reaction. Fox News told HSLDA that they recorded 1 million page views of the Romeikes’ story in 24 hours—an all-time high. Although many were not surprised by the Supreme Court’s decision, it seemed that this was the last hope for the family to avoid being sent back to Germany where they would undoubtedly be persecuted for homeschooling their children.….”
For those unfamiliar with the plight of the Romeike family:
As reported earlier today by Glenn Beck:
Well done America, well done. Congratulations to the Romeike family who has fought and suffered long and hard for this moment. Clearly, a victory for homeschooling and the Romeike family who will sleep well tonight.
It is unforgivable, however, that the Obama administration put the Romeike family through so much grief. H/t CBN News.
