Obama immigration policy leads to three murders

Cross posted from Patriot's Corner

What are three more lives lost from murder directly from his actions on our immigration policy to obama? What is a bit more blood on his hands, matter to him?

Here is a report on three deaths that can be tied directly to obama and his stopping the deportation of illegal aliens. Had obama, the first muslim illegal alien potus not issued this order, this felon might have at the very least, stayed behind bars or deported back to Haiti.

'The Obama administration has been ignoring federal immigration laws in failing to deport thousands of illegal aliens as they have been identified and detained. And now that defiance of federal law has resulted in the murder of three people, one of which was a 15 year old girl.

The real crime here is that Ashley and the two renters would still be alive today had President Obama obeyed the federal immigration laws and not placed a ban on deportations. Ironically, the ban on deportation to Haiti was lifted two weeks after the murders took place."

No, you are all criminals!
Obama’s Immigration Policy Results in Three Murders
By da Tagliare

The Obama administration has been ignoring federal immigration laws in failing to deport thousands of illegal aliens as they have been identified and detained. And now that defiance of federal law has resulted in the murder of three people, one of which was a 15 year old girl.

In 2006, 23 year old Kesler Dufrene from Haiti, was convicted of his second felony for burglary. A judge in Bradenton, Florida sentenced Dufrene to five years in prison. Since he was also an illegal immigrant, his felony conviction caused an immigration judge to order that he be deported back to Haiti upon his release from prison.

Dufrene was released from prison in September, 2010 and handed over to immigration officials. In October 2010 and under the directions from Obama who ordered a temporary halt to deportations to Haiti due to the massive earthquake that devastated the island nation, Dufrene was released from custody by immigration officials. Even though he was a two time felon and an illegal alien, Dufrene was free to walk the streets of Florida.

On January 2, 2011, relatives of 15 year old Ashley Crow were worried when they could not get anyone at her home to answer their calls, so they notified police. When the police arrived, they found Ashley, 25 year old Harlen Peralta and 35 year old Israel Rincon shot to death. Peralta and Rincon rented an attached efficiency apartment from Ashley’s mother, Audrey Hansack.

NumbersUSA: South Carolina Primary TV Ad

NumbersUSA has a new television and radio in South Carolina suggests that the presidential candidates oppose illegal immigration and excessive legal immigration when the U.S. has so many unemployed legal citizens.

This television ad will be airing in South Carolina on select television stations in the weeks leading up to the 2012 Presidential primaries. The ad asks the candidates if they think new jobs should go to unemployed Americans or to new legal immigrants.

You can view the television ad in the below video:


In addition, the following radio ad will air on radio stations throughout South Carolina in the weeks leading up to the South Carolina Presidential primary. The goal asks citizens of the Palmetto State to ask the candidates who they would give the next job to: an unemployed American or a new foreign worker. An ad similar to this one ran throughout Iowa and was the fifth most played political ad in the Des Moines market in the month leading up to the Iowa Caucuses.

Obama picks immigration reform advocate to lead domestic policy

Cross posted from Patriot's Corner - PatriotUSA: This choice for Domestic Policy Council is nothing more than a power play to secure the votes of Mexicans, Hispanics and Chicanos for Obama in the November election later this year.

"The White House announced Tuesday that Cecilia Muñoz, a former senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza, would replace Melody Barnes at the top of the council. White House press secretary Jay Carney announced the appointment during his press briefing."

Former VP of La Raza, one of the most violent, militant Mexican organizations in existence. La Raza which wants to take back California and much of the American Southwest in a 'reconquista' or reconquering of land that 'rightfully' belongs to the Mexicans.

It gets worse in what Obama, the first Muslim illegal alien Potus said about Munoz:
“Over the past three years, Cecilia has been a trusted advisor who has demonstrated sound judgment day in and day out,” the president said. “Cecilia has done an extraordinary job working on behalf of middle class families, and I’m confident she’ll bring the same unwavering dedication to her new position. . .. She's the perfect fit for this job," the official told The Hill. "This is someone who is very much ready for the position."

On immigration, she has been the president's "key person" on the issue "working to fix the system that's broken" the official said, adding that she brings 20 years of immigration policy with her to the post.

Yes, the system is badly broken and can easily be fixed by enforcing the laws that the United States ALREADY has on the books passed back in the 1940s to deal with illegal immigration. We should also build a real fence or wall, complete with watch towers, armed with 10,000 of our best troops, the best weapons and backed up with real Rules Of Engagement, shoot to kill if need be.

Will Obama and Munoz do these things to secure our borders? Not even close, they will do all they can to circumvent our laws that are already in place and open the flood gates for illegal immigration to magically become legal. The watch as our once great country turns into Tjuana of the the north.

From The Hill.

Obama picks immigration reform advocate, former La Raza traitor to lead domestic policy.

President Obama has picked a strong advocate of immigration reform to head his Domestic Policy Council.

The White House announced Tuesday that Cecilia Muñoz, a former senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza, would replace Melody Barnes at the top of the council. White House press secretary Jay Carney announced the appointment during his press briefing.

Muñoz is now serving as the White House's director of intergovernmental affairs and is in charge of outreach to state and local governments.

"The president has asked, she has accepted," Carney said.

Muñoz is an immigration expert who worked for the National Council of La Raza, the largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, until she joined the administration in 2009. The group works to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans and advocates legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

Obama has frequently been criticized by pro-immigration reform advocates for not pressing harder for changes to the country's immigration laws. Hispanic groups also have complained that the administration has stepped up deportations of illegal aliens.

All of this has led to questions about whether Obama will garner strong support from Hispanics in his 2012 reelection bid. It is crucial to Obama's reelection that he win a large majority of the Hispanic vote, particularly in critical swing states such as Florida, New Mexico and Colorado.

Carney called Muñoz "the best person for the job."

In her new role, Muñoz will become the president’s senior adviser on domestic affairs that fall outside the strict purview of the National Economic Council, which is headed by Gene Sperling.

“Over the past three years, Cecilia has been a trusted advisor who has demonstrated sound judgment day in and day out,” the president said. “Cecilia has done an extraordinary job working on behalf of middle class families, and I’m confident she’ll bring the same unwavering dedication to her new position.”

A senior administration official credited Munoz's work on immigration and disaster relief and said she has successfully brought the voices of local and state officials into the White House through her work at the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs.

"She's the perfect fit for this job," the official told The Hill. "This is someone who is very much ready for the position."

Illegal Immigration is a Crime

Secure Arkansas: Under Title 8 Section 1325 >of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
  • Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or
  • Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
  • 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;
has committed a federal crime.

Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.

Union Standoff With Administration Over Deportation Rules

The National ICE Council, the union representing 7000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, is facing a deadline late this month over whether or not to take part in training ordered by the Obama Administration aimed at reducing deportations of illegal aliens. This training was announced in a June 17th memo by ICE Director, John Morton setting out 31 factors that agency officers would use to decide whether to proceed with deportation.

Union President, Chris Crane, has been critical of Obama's strategy, saying it amounts to orders for agents not to enforce the law. Shortly after the Morton memo was issued, Crane told PRNewswire, "Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what's coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States. Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy."

Crane also stated that agents, officers, employees and the Union had no input in these policies, "ICE and the Administration have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers.  ICE worked hand in hand with immigrants' rights groups, but excluded its own officers."

Naturally, all this has been ignored by the mainstream media, along with the 2010 no-confidence vote ICE agents gave Obama appointee, John Morton.

Just as concerning are the secret policies being implemented at ICE. Agents claim that Director John Morton always presents written policies for public consumption, but then makes "secret changes" to the policies which ICE refuses to put in writing. ICE knows the policy changes will create a political outcry or could place the public or ICE officers at risk. "Our officers are already under orders not to make arrests or even talk to foreign nationals in most cases unless another agency has already arrested them. You won't find that written in any public ICE policy."

He also accuses the administration of changing the policies to win support of immigrant groups in the election.

"Law enforcement and public safety have taken a back seat to attempts to satisfy immigrant advocacy groups," Mr. Crane told a House Judiciary subcommittee in October.

"I think the writing is on the wall for every person concerned about good government and effective immigration reforms - the things happening at ICE represent neither, said Crane. We are asking everyone to please email or call your Congressman and Senators immediately and ask them to help stop what's happening at ICE, we desperately need your help."

Secretaries of Education and Labor Met With Illegal Aliens at Ed. Dept. HQ

Cross Posted from The TexasFred Blog:
Secretaries of Education and Labor Met With Illegal Aliens at Ed. Dept. HQ
(CNSNews.com) - A group of illegal aliens visited the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 15 where they held a “Student Voices” meeting with Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, according to information about the meeting posted on the official Department of Education and Department of Labor websites.

Department of Education Spokesman Jim Bradshaw, while acknowledging receiving questions about the meeting from CNSNews.com, failed to respond to those questions after they were put to him via both phone and email messages on Thursday and Friday of this week.

At the meeting, according to the Department of Labor’s website, Duncan told the illegal aliens about the administration’s “efforts to assist students who are undocumented” through the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act—the DREAM Act. Solis also spoke to the illegal aliens about the DREAM Act.

The DREAM Act, sponsored by Senate Democratic Whip Richard Durbin (Ill.), would legalize illegal aliens who had entered the U.S. before their 16th birthday, who had been in the U.S. for at least five years preceding the passage of the act, and who had been admitted to a college or earned a high school diploma or a general education development certificate.

Full Story Here:Secretaries of Education and Labor Met With Illegal Aliens at Ed. Dept. HQ

Anyone that has read this [The TexasFred] blog for ANY length of time already knows how I feel about the infestation of ILLEGALS in America, and the lack of any credible enforcement taking place, so my opinion on the DREAM Act and it's implementation should come as no surprise.
The DREAM Act (acronym for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) is an American legislative proposal first introduced in the Senate on August 1, 2001 and most recently reintroduced there on May 11, 2011.

This bill would provide conditional permanent residency to certain illegal aliens of good moral character who graduate from US high schools, arrived in the US as minors, and lived in the country continuously for at least five years prior to the bill’s enactment. If they were to complete two years in the military or two years at a four year institution of higher learning, they would obtain temporary residency for a six year period. Within the six year period, they may qualify if they have "acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the United States or has completed at least 2 years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor's degree or higher degree in the United States" or have "served in the armed services for at least 2 years and, if discharged, has received an honorable discharge". Military enlistment contracts require an eight year commitment, with active duty commitments typically between four and six years, but as low as two years. "Any alien whose permanent resident status is terminated . . . shall return to the immigration status the alien had immediately prior to receiving conditional permanent resident status under this Act." This bill would have included illegal immigrants as old as 35 years of age. DREAM Act

That all sounds well and good, at 1st glance, especially the part about serving honorably in the United States military as a path to citizenship. The part that bothers me is this, "This bill would have included illegal immigrants as old as 35 years of age."

35 years of age? That’s not disadvantaged youth, that is WETBACK labor that the Dems are hoping to convert to being Obama supporters and Democratic voters.

And another thing, an ILLEGAL that serves in the U.S. military in an attempt to gain his citizenship is a person I can respect. They would have to be willing to lay down their lives for this nation to earn the right to be called a U.S. citizen. That is someone I can welcome with open arms.

But consider this; now that Obama and company are making such drastic cutbacks to the numbers of the U.S. military, will that impede the path to citizens ship if the military is over quota and dumping troops?

Just because some ILLEGAL has been here a certain numbers of years and has managed to get a high school diploma doesn't give them ANY right to be an American citizen, no matter what their GPA may or may not be.

Let's face facts, many institutions will graduate people just to get them out of the system, and I don't mean just ILLEGALS. Think *some* high school and college athletes.

In a December 2010 report, the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that the November 30th, 2010 version of the DREAM Act would “reduce deficits by about $1.4 billion over the 2011-2020 period and increase government revenues by $2.3 billion over the next 10 years.” The same report also notes that the Act “would increase projected deficits by more than $5 billion in at least one of the four consecutive 10-year periods starting in 2021″. DREAM Act
Billions of dollars? Well hell, why not? I mean, Obama is spending TRILLIONS of U.S. tax dollars, what's a few billion among friends if it helps increase the Democratic base? Right?
One recent UCLA study estimates that between $1.4 trillion and $3.6 trillion in taxable income would be generated for the economy over a 40 year period based upon estimates ranging between 825,000 and 2.1 million potential DREAM Act beneficiaries successfully obtaining resident status through the legislation. DREAM Act
In 40 years my children will be in their 70′s, and somehow, I just don't see a TRILLION dollars being all that much money by then, not if the current path America is on isn't changed, and soon.

I just hope no one ever tells the Dems what comes after a trillion.

H-1B Visas a Symptom of Special-Interest Influence in D.C.

by John Miano, Fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies, US News: Over the previous year, the United States lost 19,740 computer jobs, 107,200 engineering jobs, and 243,870 science jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In spite of massive job losses, industry has managed to use up the entire quota of H-1B visas, most of which went to foreign workers in these fields. It is likely over 100,000 H-1B visas were given out this year.

In most of America, these grim figures would end any debate on the need to import more cheap foreign labor. In a Washington that is completely beholden to lobbyists and industry campaign cash, they find ways to look the other way. As GOP Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia says, "This [H-1B] is a very important issue for the high-tech executives who give the money."
[Rep. Tim Griffin to Introduce High-Skilled Immigrant Bill.]
D.C. is filled with mills that produce bogus studies to provide Congress with rose-colored glasses that deprive reality. Some studies spin H-1B workers as "entrepreneurs." Others make absurd job claims, such as that each H-1B worker creates six additional jobs (Do the math here: With around 100,000 H-1B visas a year, that would make H-1B the single largest job creation factor in the economy.)

In fact, the opposite is true. The largest users of H-1B visas are foreign offshoring companies. They use H-1B visas to provide on-site support for projected moved to other countries. In that model, each H-1B worker here is a proxy for even more jobs lost.

In spite of a long parade of damning audits on the H-1B program, Congress has done nothing to clean up the mess. Deliberate loopholes in the law allow employers to replace Americans with lower-paid H-1B workers. Working in the computer industry, I have witnessed employers openly replacing hundreds of Americans with cheaper worker on H-1B visas.
[Chamber of Commerce, Bloomberg Push Immigration Reform.]
H-1B supporters rarely forget to remind the public that the statute requires H-1B workers to be paid "the prevailing wage." They invariably forget that, 20,000 words later, the statute redefines the term "prevailing wage" in such a manner that an employer can legally pay a software engineer in Edison, N.J., $34,133 a year less than the median wage.

How is it possible that Americans can be fired in their own country, be replaced with foreign workers, and Congress does nothing for decades? H-1Bs, bailouts to Wall Street, and subsidies to politically connected business are all symptoms of the same problem: a government that is controlled by special interests that are antithetical to those of the American people.

Lawmakers Propose Bill to End Racial Profiling; Has Hidden Agenda

Cross posted from Patriot's CornerPatriotUSA: This is just bad news all the way around the block. One look at the traitorous politicians sponsoring this bill is enough to make you sick. This is mainly a move to garner more votes for the democrats in November and to ensure the re-election of the first Muslim, illegal alien POTUS.

This bill, as proposed would possibly force law enforcement agencies to make 'sensitivity training' mandatory. Lawsuits would become 'easier' for those claiming discrimination to sue government agencies at all levels. No doubt that the followers of islam might be kicking each other to the curb to get a lawsuit filed first. Past actions speak loudly in this arena. Just think what CAIR and other Muslim organizations would be telling their followers to do, bury the government with lawsuits and more.

"Some of the influential leftist groups pushing to pass this law claim that racial profiling was traditionally thought of as targeting African Americans but has expanded, especially after the 9/11 terrorist attacks."

We know that Muslims have screamed the loudest about being racially or criminally profiled and their accusations have always proven to be false. But that is all right. Under Islamic law it is OK to lie to us infidels and kafirs. Just a little thing called taqiyya.

Israeli airlines have used racial profiling for years. EVERYONE is a suspected terrorist until proven otherwise. How many terrorist attacks have Israeli airlines suffered in the past compared to other airlines and their security?

As the Republicans continue to flounder about, true Conservatives are totally disgusted and it is no wonder so many I now do not like any of the choices we have on the right. I do not think there will much difference after the next election from who ends up in the White House. The real battle is in Congress and who will control the House and the Senate.

From Examiner.com - Lawmakers propose bill to end racial profiling; millions to be spent
By Jim Kouri
A bill pending in the U.S. Congress to totally ban racial profiling by all U.S. law enforcement departments allocates millions of dollars in federal funds for police officer sensitivity training programs. The bill as written will also make it easier for those who claim discrimination to sue federal, state or local governments for damages.

According to a public-interest group that investigates government corruption and abuse, while the proposed law’s main selling point of ending purported discrimination by federal state and local police is noble, some of its provisions are outrageous and will cost taxpayers dearly.

The measure, End Racial Profiling Act of 2011 (ERPA), was first introduced in the U.S. Senate by Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin who was named the nation's most liberal senator by the National Journal last year, according to the Judicial Watch blog.

This month Rep. John Conyers, the ethically challenged Michigan congressman embroiled in several corruption scandals, introduced the measure in the U.S. House. Conyers has been the focus of several Judicial Watch investigations in the past.

Criminal Profiling is a law-enforcement tool with a history that began in the early 1980s. The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Behavioral Sciences Unit developed the first profile for a serial-killer (which, by the way, indicated a white male among its criteria).

Then, according to former-FBI special agent Robert Ressler, the BSU created profiles for other categories of crime including terrorism. Through the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia, local law-enforcement officers were provided instruction in profiling, which they brought back to their respective police agencies.

Romney says he would veto DREAM Act

GOPUSA - SIOUX CITY, Iowa - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Saturday that he would veto legislation that would allow certain illegal residents to become American citizens.

"The answer is yes," Romney said during a campaign stop here in western Iowa, when he was asked if he would refuse to sign what's known as the DREAM Act.

Romney has said before that he would oppose the legislation, which would legalize some young illegal immigrants if they attend college or serve in the military. But Saturday was the first time he's explicitly said he would veto it.
