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.

Liberals cry censorship after YouTube demonetizes SPLC content

Daily Caller: Liberal activists are crying foul after YouTube’s demonetizing frenzy slammed the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization known for labeling conservative groups as hate groups. A video SPLC [Read More]

 

They have been doing YouTube’s dirty work! Is this just a distraction?

You got it. The same group that said Patriot Groups marked as Hate Groups by Southern Poverty Law Center 

Here is their map to their so-called “Hate Groups” –  Hate Map

Here is a list of the various groups including Christian identities – Catholics and Oath Keepers: SPLC Groups Monitored

Last August, a guest post by Mustang, filled you in on the SPLC group and what they are about – Excusing Leftist Hatred – SPLC

 

The left-wing nonprofit SPLC— which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

Snip…

First, the flaggers are equipped with digital tools allowing them to mass flag content for review by YouTube personnel. Second, the partner groups act as guides to YouTube’s content monitors and engineers designing the algorithms policing the video platform but may lack the expertise needed to tackle a given subject.

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.

A citizen’s militia group, 300 illegals and a citizen’s arrest

 

 

Citizen’s Arrest

  by Mustang

Very recently, a citizen’s militia group arrested 300 illegal aliens in the state of New Mexico.  The leader of this group has been arrested and charged as a felon in possession of firearms.  The felony, according to the news, was that he made threats on the lives of a former president and secretary of state.  Whether this is true goes far beyond my interest in the incident, except that it was stated that these militia members could be charged with kidnapping (the illegals).  Note: New Mexico attitudes would be better understood by simple removing the word “New” in its title.  But there is a larger issue.  I’ll present it in steps.

Step 1: Title 8, United States Code 1325: Improper entry by an alien

            Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall … be fined under Title 18 or imprisoned not more than six months or both, and …

Step 2: United States Common Law

            In the United States, a private person may arrest another without a warrant, for a crime occurring in their presence.  For which crimes this is permitted may vary from one state to another.

Step 3: New Mexico Law: Stat 31-4-14 (1937)

            The arrest of a person may be lawfully made also by any peace officer or private person without a warrant upon reasonable information that the accused stands charged in the courts of a state with a crime punishable by death or imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, but when so arrested the accused must be taken before a judge or magistrate with all practicable speed and complaint must be made against him under oath setting forth the ground for the arrest … and therefore his answer shall be heard as if he had been arrested on a warrant.

Discussion

The simple part of this is that citizens of the United States armed themselves and went to a known illegal alien trafficking area.  While in this area, 300 illegals came upon these citizens and surrendered, requesting asylum.  The citizens held them (detained them) and called for immigration officers, who arrived and took said 300 asylum-seekers into custody.  By the wording of the federal statute, illegal entry appears to be a misdemeanor, not a felony, unless the perpetrator has unlawfully entered the United States on more than one occasions.  In my view, this is a serious fallacy of the federal law.  First time offense should be a felony and treated as such.

Since this incident, all the far-left whacko’s in Nuevo Mexico have experienced a pandemic of exploding heads.  The citizens are being described, among other things, as vigilantes and armed thugs.  The illegal aliens are being described as “asylum-seekers.”  In both examples, an appeal to emotion that defeats their position from its beginning.  But I do think that the matter should interest all of us.

If these citizens have taken it upon themselves to augment an overwhelmed border patrol, I should think that federal authorities would be grateful for their help.  Maybe the state and federal government should encourage American citizens to involve themselves.  For example, they could organize state and/or federal posse’s —the membership of which could be carefully regulated with mandatory training and certification.  They might also secure a waiver for liability should any of these citizens be killed while acting in such capacity (which is entirely possible along the US-Mexico border).

But were these illegal aliens kidnapped?  No.  They were detained.  Law enforcement was summoned to the scene immediately.  Were these citizens acting as vigilantes or thugs?  It doesn’t sound like it to me.  But here’s what didn’t happen: no shots were fired; no one was cuffed; no one was transferred to another place against their will.

What it does sound like is that the federal government, who by the mere size of the US-Mexico border region, is incapable of doing its job, but does not want the scrutiny of citizens who simply want to achieve safety in their own communities.  Rather than taking advantage of citizens willing to step forward (at no cost to either state or federal authorities), they are in the process of heaping charge after charge against them.

UPDATE:

United Constitutional Patriots New Mexico Border Ops more still flooding in

 

Video of what happened:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1907580/Video-armed-militia-catch-asylum-seekers-cross-border.html

Kidnapping is a serious offense.  I’m not seeing any element of kidnapping in this case, but since the authorities want to play hardball (to make an example of them) these fellows would be best advised to find a damn good lawyer.

Why this post?  I’m curious about the opinions of Bunkerville readers.

Mitch McConnel Refutes President Trump: Closing Border Would Have Catastrophic Impact on Country

 

What has become abundantly clear, the GOP and Congress  will do nothing to help Trump these last two years. McConnell in particular has set his mind that no attempt to work on Obamacare will happen. Worse, nothing will be done to secure our border. While I am at it, Mexico can take their avocados and shove them. Let them rot in Mexico. By the way, are we still fixing Mexican trucks so they can meet our EPA emissions standards and roam around with the avocados? Just asking.

Did the Dems ever do something like this to Obama? One thing one has to say for Pelosi and her tribe, they remained loyal to Obama. No caterwauling from them. These Republicans in Congress are despicable.

In March 100,000 illegal immigrants invaded the southern border. Immigration services are overwhelmed.

These are the Senate Republicans who voted against President Trump’s border emergency declaration:

  • Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
  • Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah
  • Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska
  • Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
  • Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah
  • Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan.
  • Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
  • Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio
  • Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.
  • Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
  • Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.

 

 

You can take those avocados and shove them. Mexico too.

Mexican Avocado Prices Explode By Most In A Decade After Trump Border Threat

 

More fake news and who cares.

“You couldn’t pick a worse time of year because Mexico supplies virtually 100% of the avocados in the U.S. right now,” Barnard told Reuters.

“California is just starting and they have a very small crop, but they’re not relevant right now and won’t be for another month or so.”

However, while it’s all very exciting, the surge has pushed avocado prices up to the same level they were at in 2017 at this time of year…

And while I am on a tear, are we still fixing Mexican Trucks so they can roam America with those avocados?

Mexico Trucks rolling across America – U.S. pays for upgrades

In the latest effort to accommodate its cherished trade partner in the south, the U.S. government is paying to upgrade outdated Mexican trucks that hemorrhage illegal amounts of exhaust on their trips north to deliver merchandise.

Since the Mexican truckers have no intention of fixing the problem, Uncle Sam has stepped in to save the environment. U.S. taxpayers have picked up the cost to replace old mufflers on dozens of trucks and many more are scheduled to be upgraded by the middle of this year. The unbelievable story was reported this week by an Arizona newspaper that says replacing the old mufflers with new catalytic converters will reduce harmful diesel emissions by up to 30%.

From earlier posting from Bunkerville: Mexican Truckers say they cannot meet U.S. EPA Standards

Mexican government says it will ease its trade sanctions against U.S. imports only after its trucks are allowed to cross the border.

Sanctions? Juan really…

Juan Carlos Munoz, president of Mexico’s National Chamber of Motor Transport of Freight, said Mexican trucks cannot meet U.S. environmental emissions standards, which effectively shuts them out of the market.

While you were asleep the 9th circuit declared ‘Open Borders”

 

For any GOP Senator who cannot get their act together and support Trump’s Executive Order regarding funding the border, take a look at what the 9th circuit did last week. We have Open Borders now. And it is here. Well worth the full read guys in case you missed what happened.

 

Congress could never get away with creating constitutional rights for illegal aliens to remain here, yet a single lower court just did so on Thursday. And where Congress would face deep reprisal in the next election, faceless judges will never feel the heat.

Conservatives fear that extreme Democrats might actually abolish ICE and all immigration enforcement, but the lower courts are already systematically abolishing ICE’s authority, nullifying immigration enforcement statutes, violating separation of powers, and constantly increasing the wave of bogus asylum-seekers that they originally spawned with other radical rulings.

The latest ruling from the Ninth Circuit demonstrates that unless Republicans and the president begin pushing back against these radical judges and delegitimizing their rulings, Democrats will get everything they want without ever facing electoral backlash or even the need to win elections.

It’s truly hard to overstate the outrageously harmful effects of Thursday’s Ninth Circuit ruling. For the first time in our history, the courts have fabricated a constitutional right for those denied asylum to appeal to federal courts for any reason.

Here’s the background.

Hundreds of thousands of migrants are flooding our border, claiming the formula of “credible fear” of persecution. They get to stay indefinitely while they ignore their court dates in immigration court. Because of an amalgamation of several prior activist court rulings, mainly by this very circuit, roughly 90 percent of credible fear claims are approved by asylum officers and the claimants shielded from deportation, even though asylum status is ultimately rejected almost every time by an immigration judge.

Unfortunately, by that point it’s too late for the American people, who are stuck with the vast majority of these claimants remaining indefinitely in the country.

Yet rather than ending this sham incentive, the Ninth Circuit drove a truck through immigration law by asserting that there is now a constitutional right for even the few who are denied initial credible fear status and are placed in deportation proceedings to appeal their denials, not just to an administrative immigration judge but to a federal Article III judge for any reason.

The Venezuela Crisis – Where the refugees are headed, why we should care

 

The biggest migration in South American history is taking place and here is why it should matter to us. They are not just coming our way, but are putting enormous strain on their South American neighbors.

Looks like for now 290k for us. For now. Considering the number we have pounding on the door, it’s probably small change. Better yet, I bet they don’t have the Marxist fever that at present is sweeping our land. Maybe a couple of these folks could chat with Bernie, Cortez and friends about how this Communism thing worked out for them.

Some four hundred thousand have claimed asylum from political persecution and violence, and another million have gained other forms of residency. Hundreds of thousands of others, however, lack legal residency, and with it, access to employment, education, and social services. It is one of the largest and swiftest mass migrations in Latin America’s history, and the United Nations has characterized the situation as a humanitarian crisis [PDF].

 

The chart shows 3.4 million refugees from Venezuela since 2015. That’s 10 percent of the population. 10 percent of the US population would be 33 million. The UN, the European Union and the US with allies should see this as a disaster and demand change.

 

Venezuela is in the midst of an unprecedented political and economic crisis, the effects of which are rippling across the hemisphere and beyond. Wracked by hyperinflation, severe food and medicine shortages, soaring crime rates, and an increasingly authoritarian executive, more than 2.7 million Venezuelans—approximately 9 percent of the population—have fled the country in the past four years.
