Sanctuary – the danger of civil disobedience

 

We started out with sanctuary churches for illegals, then wholesale cities to States. We have included protecting illegals to those using marihuana. Conservatives are getting into the act now claiming the Second Amendment with gun control as their right to using State sanctuary of counties and towns for the use of this new found “right.” Police authorities claim they will not enforce the rule of State laws.

Mustang gives us his take on illegal use of “Sanctuary” and its impact regarding illegal immigration. Just where will this new found “Right” take us? How far will it go?

Why Sanctuary?

by Mustang

In law, “sanctuary community” has no standing because in the United States, no one is above the law.  No state may refuse to obey federal laws in matters constitutionally assigned to federal authority.  No community within a state has the right to ignore federal authority.

When communities declare themselves sanctuary entities, they are in effect exercising a kind of civil disobedience, which may be (and should be) punished under the law.  Under American law, there is no legitimacy attached to civil disobedience —no matter what arguments may be used to justify it by law breakers.

But the issue has taken on a new dimension.  Not only do civil administrators declare their intent to ignore federal law, they produce writs that prohibit constitutionally sworn police officers from obeying federal laws, as well.  It is a dangerous conspiracy that threatens the United States, its several states, and communities within those states.

Cloward and Piven at the Motor Voter signing law

I believe that “conspiracy” is the correct word for what is happening in the United States today.  A refusal of obey federal law with respect to immigration appears related to the so-called Cloward-Piven strategy devised in 1966, the purpose of which was to overwhelm the lawful exercise of federal power to such an extent that federalism fails; a situation in which the federal government can no longer execute its Constitutional authority or mandate.

Sanctuary cities may not be the most important issue facing the Department of Justice, but if one believes that illegal immigration has reached the point where it imposes a clear and present danger to the security of the United States, its several states, its thousands of communities, then the federal government must act to settle this issue permanently.

Let’s recap:

  • Illegal immigration is illegal.
  • Illegal immigration is a burden to lawful citizens in terms of taxes, infrastructure, access to policing, medical treatment facilities, public education, and community services.
  • Illegal aliens pay less in taxes (sales taxes, etc.) than they receive through state and local services (Source: Congressional Budget Office).
  • The presence of illegal aliens poses a significant risk to lawful residents in terms of violent crimes, drugs, drunk drivers, community health and sanitation.

On 9 January 2020, Ms. Maria Fuentes, aged 92, a citizen of Richmond Hill, Queens, New York, was brutally raped and murdered at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and 127th Street in Richmond Hill by 21-year old Reeaz Khan, an illegal alien from Guyana.  Reeaz was roaming the streets of New York City despite a federal order for his deportation for prior assault and illegal weapons charges.

He was roaming free on the streets of New York City because the New York City Police Department refused to honor a federal retainer request.  Quite naturally, the NYPD now claims that they never received such a request from federal law enforcement agencies.

The evidence of this particular case shows that Reeaz Khan pounced upon his 92-year old victim from behind, throwing her to the ground, sexually assaulting her, and then ran from the scene of his crime.

This illegal alien has now been charged with seven charges, including second degree murder, first degree manslaughter, first degree attempted rape, first degree sexual assault, and tampering with physical evidence.  Reeaz claims that he came upon the woman, found that she was passed out, and tried to render aid but in the process, his pants fell down and his genitals came in contact with hers.  I hope he has a masterful attorney.

DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf observed that New York City is in a state of complete breakdown of law and order and blames this partly on New York City’s sanctuary policies.  Wolf said, “NYC proudly passed sanctuary city laws and bragged about it for months.  But now the citizens of NYC are facing the deadly consequences of these sanctuary policies.

In 2019, New York City experienced 300 murders, an increase of 8% over the murder rate of 2018.  Maybe sanctuary policies aren’t working as well as everyone on the left claims.  Nor should we forget the senseless murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco, California —the home of Democrat Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Sanctuary is not a new concept.  In times past, the word refers to a wide range of protective measures that may be taken by communities on behalf of those who residents believed deserve protection.  Lately, though, we have taken the word sanctuary and added to it the word community, but in the absence of any statute that defines sanctuary city, we find the notion somewhat confusing.

In law, “sanctuary community” has no standing because in the United States, no one is above the law.  No state may refuse to obey federal laws in matters constitutionally assigned to federal authority.  No community within a state has the right to ignore federal authority.

Just say no to new ‘Refugees’ in your local Communities and States

 

States  and local government commissions will soon have the option to chose whether they want to receive refugees. Expect a battle royal as the VOLAGS who contract to handle the “refugees” stand to lose a boatload of cash.

Why in the world are we taking so many Muslims? Especially Syria and Somalia. This is the time for all of us to step up to our local and State government Reps and tell them NO MORE! It’s up to us!

 

The Islamic Center of America, the largest mosque in the United States, located in Dearborn, Michigan.

Up until this coming June, contractors can put refugees wherever they want (with some consultation with the State Department).

In June Trump’s new rules come into play. We get to chose.

States where Governors have told the President that they want MORE refugees for their state

On December 13, 2019, the State Department released the official list of states and localities that have consented to receive refugees in FY2020:

State and Local Consents Under Executive Order 13888

 

Let’s take a step back and look at just what and who we are importing and just how exorbitant the amount is being spent. Info is from: Refugee Resettlement Watch

Here (below) is a table done by Simpson compiled using USA Spending that includes the millions of dollars each of the nine contractors devoured in the last eleven years.

Know that the contractors do not just get money from the US State Department for placement of refugees per head, but also get myriad grants and contracts from other federal agencies, mostly the Office of Refugee Resettlement in Health and Human Services, but other agencies as well.

Note this is in MILLIONS!   Not sure on the acronyms? See list below (DFMS is the other name for Episcopal Migration Ministries.)

Don’t miss the steep jump in their income over Obama’s years in office. No wonder they are screaming bloody murder!

Refugee Resettlement Watch continues to argue that these nine contractors are the heart of America’s Open Borders movement and thus there can never be long-lasting reform of US immigration policy when these nine un-elected phony non-profits are paid by the taxpayers to work as community organizers pushing an open borders agenda.

The President has linked the acquisition of a portion of their annual payout from the US Treasury to consent letters from governors and county commissions to place refugees.

June is the deadline unless a lawsuit brought by three of the contractors stops the President).

Let’s take a look back and review how this has been working out for us.

From a previous post:

Many of our newly minted Syrian Refugees are questionable at best

The Breibart post has the following headline Unholy Alliance: Christian Charities Profit from $1 Billion Fed Program to Resettle Refugees, 40 Percent Muslim. ($1 Billion then).

The focus was on the big bucks various agencies were making off the import of all these refugees that Ryan, Clinton and Obama are determined to thrust upon us. Obama is proud he is on track to reach his 10,000 Syrians by September. Buried in the post were chilling details of just how many of these refugees have no interest in American values. This is what will get us and our neighbors killed. Here tis:

Of the 100,000 refugees resettled in the United States in 2014 under the Refugee Resettlement program, an estimated 40 percent were Muslims.

For instance, a recent Pew Research Poll indicated that approximately 14 percent of Muslims in 11 major Muslim majority countries sympathize with ISIS.

Another recent poll indicated that 13 percent of Syrian refugees coming to the United States “have a positive” or “positive to some extent” view of ISIS.

Since 1980, an estimated three million international refugees have entered the United States through this program, or approximately 100,000 per year for 35 years. Until 1990, very few Muslims were brought in. Since then, about 40 percent of refugees have been Muslim. In those 25 years, more than one million Muslims have been brought to the United States through this program.

Over the past five years, 680,000 green cards have been issued to Muslim immigrants (not all of whom came to the U.S. under the Refugee Resettlement program).

The national security concerns surrounding the Syrian refugees has not prompted these Christian non-profit VOLAGs to reconsider their refugee resettlement programs. Instead, as Refugee Resettlement Watch reported on Friday, they have just launched a massive public relations campaign to change the minds of the majority of Americans, whom three major polls show oppose letting any more Syrian refugees in the country.

As President Obama, backed by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, has ramped up accepting refugees fleeing Syria and other war-torn nations.

Bonus:

U.S. takes on more Syrian refugees than all of the E.U. 8,000 vs 6,000

Despite promises of European Union member states to take in 160,000 refugees, a new report shows that they’ve accepted a fraction, 6,000, while the United States has embraced 8,000 of a planned 10,000 this year.

As President Obama, backed by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, has ramped up accepting refugees fleeing Syria and other war-torn nations, the EU has put the brakes on hard, apparently bowing to public outrage.

Obama picks up Somali ‘Refugees’ from around the world

Just like Australia’s unwanted illegal aliens, why are South Africa’s illegal aliens our problem?

…Snip

Buffalo News story:

The father is from Somalia. He fled his country and made the risky journey to South Africa. That’s where he met his eventual wife and where his daughters were born, but where the family did not have permanent residency. [What! We thought everyone was welcome in SA?—ed]

So the United Nations sent them to us!

The City of Buffalo has taken in thousands of immigrants and refugees in recent years, and it’s reflected in many of its schools. More than 85 different languages are spoken throughout the district, but that number can change by the day.

CA to ban ICE immigration centers and prisons -18,000 prisoners

 

Closing immigration centers that hold 18,000 people should rank close to the top of the list in asinine decisions. Add a couple more thousand of California prisoners that no doubt will end up on the street, thus able to have their way with honest citizens. Governor Newsom has said previously he supports the bill:

California lawmakers passed a bill on Wednesday banning private prisons from operating in the state – a move which will likely also lead to the closure of four large immigration detention facilities that can hold up to a combined 18,000 people, according to The Guardian.

The move is a dramatic shift for California, which used to rely on private prisons to reduce overcrowding in state-run facilities.

Private prison companies used to view California as one of their fastest-growing markets. As recently as 2016, private prisons locked up approximately 7,000 Californians, about 5% of the state’s total prison population, according to the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics. But in recent years, thousands of inmates have been transferred from private prisons back into state-run facilities. As of June, private prisons held 2,222 of California’s total inmate population. –

There are currently four private prisons in California operated by the Geo Group, whose contracts expire in 2023 and cannot be renewed under the new legislation, unless ordered by a federal court in order to reduce overcrowding.

In addition to signaling a major criminal justice reform, AB32 also has become a flashpoint in California’s fight with the Trump administration over the treatment of immigrants.

The bill’s author, the assemblymember Rob Bonta, originally wrote it only to apply to contracts between the state’s prison authority and private, for-profit prison companies. But in June, Bonta amended the bill to apply to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency’s four major California detention centers.

Bonta’s amendment, say immigrant rights advocates, appears to have caught Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (Ice) and the private prison companies at a moment when their current contracts are expiring. The result is that instead of slowly phasing out immigration detention centers as their existing contracts expire years down the road, most will face closure next year – unless Ice and its private prison contractors find a workaround. –The Guardian

Illegal Alien invites ICE to community meeting now faces deportation

 

Illegal invites ICE to a community meeting to address “community concerns over immigration.” Let’s see what could go wrong.

He had pled guilty to a burglary charge earlier, was shipped back to Guatemala and decided to wander back over the border to the USA illegally a couple of months later because there was no one big beautiful wall. Now he awaits deportation

Today’s feel good story of the day.

The Daily Dot reported:

A Guatemalan father of five and revered member of his community has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) within weeks after he invited ICE members, among others, to a community meeting organized to address people’s rising concerns about immigration, according to reports.

Roland Gramajo, 40, organized a community meeting in southwest Houston, Texas, in August, as President Donald Trump’s orders for ICE raids riled up communities across the country, the Houston Chronicle reported.

On Thursday, he was arrested near his home and is facing deportation, the New York Times reported. It’s unclear if ICE members accepted the invitation and officially attended the community meeting. Some attendees reported that they’d seen some men, seemingly out of place, take photos of Gramajo, which some now believe were ICE agents “secretly” attending the meeting, the Times reported.

Gramajo first came to the U.S. in 1994 and outstayed his tourist visa. In 1998, he pled guilty to burglary charges. His daughter says it was a practical joke with a friend, who eventually wanted to drop the charges, that spun out of control. The case went ahead anyway, and he was deported in 2004.

He crossed back months later, without documents, and has since lived in the country.

Anderson Cooper: It’s Exciting That Whites Will Not Be the Majority

 

No Anderson Cooper, it has nothing to do with the color of the skin of those who are charging our borders. Do the 7 billion inhabitants now populating our planet have the right to our largesse?  How many do you suggest?

 

This silly ethnic self-aggrandizement has metastasized into the dogma that immigration is an inviolable civil right for the world’s 7.4 billion Pre-Americans. For Americans to not let in anybody who wants to come would be discriminatory, and discrimination is the worst thing ever.

If the Progressives needed any fuel to add their Nationalism screed, Trump gave it to them in spades-

But the Trump administration’s announcement on Monday of its update to the “1999 Interim Field Guidance on Deportability and Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” to better avoid letting in legal immigrants likely to wind up on welfare was widely greeted with shocked sputtering. Our elected government choosing immigrants who would be better neighbors for us current Americans makes the Statue of Liberty cry.

Forget that it has always been the law that new immigrants are required to be self-supporting. In fact, they would have everyone forget the rule of law, forget the plight and needs of so many of our own. Our own people of color. Forget the inner cities… why not, they already have the Black vote and really in the end, isn’t that what this all about?

What culture since recorded history has celebrated the forthcoming demise of their culture let alone their Nation?

Here is the bonus which most of us “Nationalists” had figured out already.

More than 200 applied for chicken plant job fair after MS ICD raids

 

A state official said Wednesday that more than 200 people applied for jobs at a chicken processing plant in Morton during a job fair held Monday.

Koch Foods, one of four companies with plants in six small Mississippi towns, was targeted in a massive federal immigration raid on Aug. 7. It contacted the state employment agency the same day to request its help in hiring workers.

So you are telling me there are Americans that want a $10.80 an hour job in a chicken plant? There goes the old saw that we had to have illegals because Americans would not take these jobs.

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

Elizabeth Warren promises illegals commisson to investigate US crimes against them

 

We have a Presidential candidate no less threatening the very thin blue line of patriotic men and women. Those men and women who for some reason are still willing to risk life and limb keeping the angry hungry hordes from over running our country. Disregard this at our peril. This is scary dude stuff. She has a fairly good chance of becoming the Democrat Presidential candidate.

Elizabeth Warren

The last bastion of keeping America America depends on law enforcement. Anarchy now abounds. With the very leadership of our country telling “immigrants” illegal as they may be, no longer to “Run Sally Run” but simply don’t answer the door. Though the courts have reckoned that these criminals need to be removed, just forget it. Here tis:

Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren promised a crowd of supporters on Saturday that on her first day in the White House, she would create a commission to investigate “crimes committed by the United States against immigrants.”

The well-known Warren Commission of days gone by investigated the killing of a president. A new Warren Commission would, in essence, be about a president killing the United States.

“On my first day, I will empower a commission in the Department of Justice to investigate crimes committed by the United States against immigrants,” she declared at the leftist Netroots Nation conference.

In an outrageous, sweeping attack on the good people working Border Protection missions during the current Democrat-fueled immigration crisis, Warren broad-brushed baseless accusations that are making life for them more dangerous and difficult.

According to Warren’s published plan … “President Trump has weaponized deportation in ways that are costly, ineffective, and designed to maximize pain. It’s time to end this cruelty — and refocus on true threats to public safety and national security instead.”

Referring to an “obsessive focus” on border enforcement, Warren wrote: “And under Trump, it has become increasingly abusive. We should repeal this criminal prohibition to prevent future abuse.

As president, I will immediately issue guidance to end criminal prosecutions for simple administrative immigration violations; end Operation Streamline, which subjects migrants to mass prosecutions; and refocus our limited resources on actual criminals and real threats to the United States.

Mexico reinforces border checks amid US pressure – video

 

This no less from ABC news and the AP. What congress refuses to do, Trump has twisted enough arms in Mexico to have at least this one feel good story for a Monday.

Mexican authorities increased immigration enforcement along well-traveled routes for migrants in southern Mexico over the weekend, checking identifications, pulling migrants off public transport and intercepting four trucks packed with nearly 800 migrants.

 

The National Migration Institute said 1,000 immigration agents had been deployed in the north and south of Mexico. The deployment comes as Mexico faces heightened pressure from the U.S. to reduce the surge of mostly Central American migrants through its territory. Mexico plans to position 6,000 National Guard troops by Tuesday to its southern border with Guatemala. More at ABC News

New Rules! YouTube Banning anything critical of illegal immigration UPDATE!

 

There is no slowing down the loss of our rights to free speech when in the hands of a corporation. The latest in determination of what “hate Speech” is. Now a new protected class: Immigration Status.

YouTube, which is owned by Google, said it’s removing thousands of channels that violate the new policies.

Ethnicity? Nothing critical permitted opposing the suppression of Muslim women?

Immigration? Wall jumpers banned?

 

 

YouTube’s new policies will take effect immediately. Specifically, the service is banning videos “alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion.” The ban applies to a range of characteristics, including race, sexual orientation and veteran status.

YouTube’s changes follow moves from Facebook to prohibit not only white supremacy , but also white nationalism and white separatism.

Justice Dept prosecuted only 11 individuals, no companies in employing illegals

 

Why are not employers held accountable in employing illegals? Without employment, and/or social benefits illegal “migrants” would be forced to self deport. No doubt the same fine people who give millions of Buckeroos to Congress to make sure there is no wall.

The latest available data show that during the last twelve months (April 2018 – March 2019) only 11 individuals (and no companies) were prosecuted in just 7 cases.

According to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, the much discussed crackdown on illegal immigration policies of the Trump Administration does not extend to one notable group: employers. With increases in arrests and deportations, the Justice Department has notably not prosecuted the employers who hire illegal immigrants.

Eleven.

During the same period, these 11 prosecutions compare with 85,727 individuals prosecuted for illegal entry, 34,617 prosecuted for illegal re-entry, and 4,733 prosecuted for illegally bringing in or harboring immigrants.

Given the millions of undocumented immigrants now working in this country, the odds of being criminally prosecuted for employing undocumented workers appears to be exceedingly remote.

Indeed, since criminal penalties for employers were first enacted by Congress in 1986, few employers have ever been prosecuted under these provisions (8 USC 1324a). Prosecutions have rarely climbed above 15 annually, and have never exceeded 20 individuals a year except during 2005 under President Bush and when they reached 25 in the first year of the Obama Administration.

Not only are few employers prosecuted, fewer who are convicted receive sentences that amount to more than token punishment. Prison sentences are rare. For example, of the 11 individuals the Justice Department reported as convicted during the most recent 12-month period, only 3 were sentenced to serve prison time.

Some estimates put as much as 25 percent of farm industry jobs might be held by undocumented immigrations. Even at half of that number, you would be talking about thousands of businesses. Yet, the companies responsible for widespread violations of federal law have been afforded effective immunity.
