Caught! Immigration Bill Shackles Border Agents

by Aaron Klein, WND: A truckload of young Hispanic men is spotted by a U.S. Border Patrol agent rumbling down a dusty road a mile north of the Mexican border toward El Paso, Texas.

How should the agent respond?

Under the immigration-reform bill currently under consideration by Congress, Border Patrol agents or any other law-enforcement officer who stops such a vehicle to demand identification might be found in violation of the law.

The legislation bars all federal law-enforcement officers, including border agents, from using race or ethnicity “to any degree” while making routine or spontaneous law-enforcement decisions, a WND review of the legislation has found.

The bill further calls for the Homeland Security Department to collect data on immigration enforcement activities to determine the existence of racial profiling.

The data would be utilized to issue future guidelines to officers regarding the use of race or ethnicity during routine enforcement.

The bill states that “in making routine or spontaneous law enforcement decisions, such as ordinary traffic stops, Federal law enforcement officers may not use race or ethnicity to any degree, except that officers may rely on race and ethnicity if a specific suspect description exists.”

The bill defines federal law-enforcement officers as any “officer, agent, or employee of the United States authorized by law or by a Government agency to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, or prosecution of any violation of Federal law.”

The definition includes U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

It is clear that immigration enforcement officials are singled out by the new directives.

The legislation refers specifically to border-security agents with another clause that states “in enforcing laws protecting the integrity of the Nation’s borders, Federal law enforcement officers may not consider race or ethnicity except to the extent permitted by the Constitution and laws of the United States.”

If the legislation is enacted, the bill calls for the DHS secretary to begin within 180 days the collection of data regarding the “individualized immigration enforcement activities of covered Department officers.”

The data is to be utilized immediately to possibly issue new guidelines.

The act states that within 180 days of the data collection, the DHS secretary “shall complete a study analyzing the data.”

Ninety days after the study is complete, the bill dictates the secretary, in consultation with the attorney general, “shall issue regulations regarding the use of race, ethnicity, and any other suspect classifications the Secretary deems appropriate by covered Department officers.”

The bill allows for some exceptions to the racial profiling restriction.

It states federal law-enforcement officers may consider race and ethnicity “only to the extent that there is trustworthy information, relevant to the locality or time frame that links persons of a particular race or ethnicity to an identified criminal incident, scheme, or organization.”

Sens. Alexander & Rubio Seeking To Advance Political Careers Via Amnesties and Big Immigration Surges

Roy Beck
Roy Beck, NumbersUSA: I could literally "read the writing on the wall" for Republicans who are following the advice of their national party leaders, consultants and corporate fund-raisers to flood America's labor markets with foreign workers.

The words "Sen. Alexander under fire on immigration" scrolled across the electronic news screen that wraps around the corner of the complex that contains the local ABC TV station and Politico.

Being one of the 14 Republicans (30% of GOP Senators) who rescued the S. 744 amnesty bill from defeat last month is not helping any of them win any popularity contests.

Providing the starkest evidence was a Public Policy Polling report earlier this week on Sen Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). The firm was widely regarded as one of the most accurate during last year's presidential campaign. In its polling of preferences for a Republican presidential nominee, it found:

"Marco Rubio, who had led all of our polling since December, has dropped all the way to 6th place. . . . Rubio was at 21 or 22% on all of our polls between January and March but his support has now dropped to half that level (10%)."
Rubio made the decision in January to become the face of the omnibus immigration bill, even allowing various special interest groups to run non-stop ads featuring him touting the legislation on conservative TV and radio, even though the bill was written primarily by the staff of New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer. Rubio made sure that few Republican Primary voters across the nation would be unaware of his leadership for the giant bill. It was a huge gamble apparently based on national GOP consultants' belief that Rubio could convert conservative voters to his view that giving out some 30 million new green cards over the next decade would be good for the American people.

Sen. Alexander did most of his work to pass the bill in the background. He is facing re-election in 2014 and let his fellow Tennessee Republican, Sen. Corker, take the public leadership for the amnesty since he was just re-elected last fall and has five years before having to answer to voters again.

But Tennessee voters don't look to be in a mood to give Alexander a pass, according to the Politico article last night:

"Attending a rally in Smyrna, Tenn., last weekend, Alexander was greeted by a crowd of about 300 conservative activists -- organizers said -- wearing bright red T-shirts that read "Beat Lamar" in big bold letters. They held signs that blared: "You betrayed us" . . . Tea party groups were already watching Alexander given declining scores from the Club for Growth and Heritage Action, and they hope last month's immigration vote will be a tipping point against him. It's a test of their ability to punish GOP lawmakers for their stance on the Gang of Eight bill -- especially important given Senate Republicans did not move en masse to vote for the measure, and House Republicans want nothing to do with it.

"Unlike previous cycles, Lamar Alexander is in trouble," said Drew Ryun, political director of the conservative Madison Project and a former Republican National Committee deputy director. "Immigration is the big issue, especially given some of the things he's said in the past. His political doublespeak isn't going to work this time."

Activists representing several local tea party groups in Tennessee have teamed up with national conservative groups such as FreedomWorks, the Madison Project and Senate Conservatives Fund to find a credible, conservative candidate who can challenge Alexander in next year's primary.

Alexander, like most of the Republican Senators who voted for the big increase in foreign labor, has a huge campaign war chest filled with donations from the corporate wing of the party. It will be very difficult for a challenger to beat him. But just having to compete in a Primary is at the least a costly indignity that most incumbents of either party abhor.

The key to killing any chance of S. 744 ever becoming law lies with the majority of Republicans in the House telling Speaker Boehner not to bring any bills to the floor that can be "conferenced" with the Senate bill. If your Congressional District has a Republican Representative, we have provided on your Action Board a fax to warn them about the example that Sen. Rubio is providing for the political consequences of supporting amnesties and massive immigration increases.

{Also, NumbersUSA has] provided faxes to inform your Republican Representatives of an op-ed by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) that suggests the best way for Republicans to draw Hispanic-American votes is to help them move and stay in the middle class. [To join free and to use the fax Congress feature for free, go to NumbersUSA.com]

Most of the rest of you will find other faxes that have been posted on your Action Board this week.

Finally, our staff has been aggressively planning for your visits to home offices and Town Hall meetings of Representatives during the month of August. If you have not already signed up for special notifications, please email Melanie Oubre to let her know that you want to help -- moubre@numbersusa.com.

Raw Video: Illegals caught in border tunnel

SAN YSIDRO - July 25, 2013 - SDNV EXCLUSIVE: More than 10 illegal aliens tried to make it into the USA by using a tunnel near the US/Mexico border. Radio traffic indicates that two people were transported to the hospital, although I only saw one. The tunnel is a city-built tunnel (or at least the hatch is). I'm not quite sure what type of tunnel it is. I counted 10, plus 1 seen going into the ambulance, although I may have missed a few. The initial call went out as a miscellaneous rescue with people trapped underground. Firefighters had to lower a ladder and Border Patrol agents down into the tunnel to remove the people. They were all loaded up into two cargo vans and presumably transported back to Border Patrol HQ.

House Leadership Proposes Moving "Immigration Amnesty Lite"

“A new Pew poll suggests that illegal immigrants, if given citizenship, would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.” - GOA’s Erich Pratt, commenting on Pew poll findings as reported in The Washington Post (7/22/13)

Gun Owners of America: Just when we had largely won the fight to prevent 8,000,000 new anti-gun Obama voters from being added to the rolls, now comes a new development: "amnesty lite."

According to Monday's Wall Street Journal, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor -- working with Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte -- proposes to give voting rights to about 2,000,000 young people who are here illegally because they were brought here by their parents when they were children.

We think this is a bad idea.

First of all, a Pew poll released this week shows that 31 percent of Latino illegal immigrants identify themselves as Democrat -- or with the Party that includes calls for more gun control in its platform -- whereas only 4 percent identify themselves with Republicans.

Barack Obama has already decided, by executive fiat, not to deport young illegals. So the issue is not whether or not they can continue to live in the United States, but whether they will be given the vote.

To be sure, two million new anti-gun voters is "less bad" than 8,000,000 new anti-gun voters. But that doesn't make it good.

But there are other problems with "amnesty lite."

We have largely won in our efforts to prevent 8,000,000 anti-gun voters from being added to the rolls. "Amnesty lite" revitalizes Obama's agenda, energizes his base, and -- if passed by the House -- sets up a conference committee with the Senate in which the only question is how severely Obama succeeds in defeating pro-gun candidates, declaring victory over them, and getting what he wants.

Incidentally, once this happens, gun control will be on the table again. And because of the expanded E-Verify provisions in the Senate legislation, we will be facing the implementation of a de facto National ID card, as noted in the June 15 edition of the New York Times.

Gun Owners of America has long opposed anything that smacks of National ID because of the danger that such data collection poses to gun owners’ privacy. We agree with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who said:

“I am against government lists of those who own or have transferred a firearm for the same reason I oppose any pathway to a national ID [in the immigration bill]. I don’t think that government should have the awesome power of monitoring the legal activities of American citizens.”

If there’s a silver lining to the situation we’re facing, it’s this: Given House Democrats' lack of enthusiasm for what they view as a "piecemeal approach" to amnesty, it may not take many Republicans to stop this bad idea in its tracks.

There are good ways to reach out to the Hispanic community and self-defeating ways.

Frankly, many conservatives and constitutionalists are thinking, increasingly, that Texas Senator Ted Cruz would make an exciting GOP nominee for the presidency.

But reshaping the political landscape in America to resemble the blue, anti-gun state of California is not the answer.

ACTION: Click here to contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote against the "amnesty lite" proposal for 2,000,000 anti-gun illegals.

Amnesty Kryptonite

William Gheen, ALIPAC: We have been working hard to explain to politically suicidal Republicans eager to lead their party and our nation to doom with amnesty for illegal aliens that 20 million illegal alien voters will turn America into a one party system. Perhaps some of these Republicans like McCain, Rubio, Flake, Graham, Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan plan to just join this one party system. Or even worse, perhaps we are already governed by that one party system!

But today, we have the proof we need to turn more than 90% of Republicans and real Conservatives so firmly against the Obama backed nation destroying amnesty plan in the US House!

Today's news can by Amnesty Kryptonite!

A new poll by the Pew Research Center shows that the new voting bloc of illegal aliens created by the Senate's S. 744 and new legislation being planned in the House will vote Democrat 8 to 1. This injection of new entitlement voters behind Democrats will assure the Democrats control Congress, the Senate, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency for decades if not hundreds of years into the future.

In fact, within 10 years of implementation of Amnesty, Republicans will be unlikely to control many state legislatures as well. All true Americans of every race and party will be playing defense forevermore if this amnesty passes!

If you are most like the Americans who founded this nation and who have sustained it with blood, sweat, and taxes for 200 years, then you will no longer be the driving force in American politics! While Democrats will enjoy initial gains, even liberals will quickly learn they have very little in common with the millions of 3rd world invaders streaming in from now on.

A Backdoor Path to Amnesty?

by Rob Bluey, Heritage Foundation: Members of Congress have debated various versions of the DREAM Act more than 30 times over the past dozen years. They’ll do so again today, possibly setting the stage for a backdoor path to amnesty in the U.S. House.

Although no bill text is available — and might not be until after the August recess — a Judiciary Committee panel will hold a hearing this afternoon addressing the immigration status of an estimated 2.8 million illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

---  DREAM Act Hearings: 5 Questions for Congress

President Obama, as he’s done often, decided to sidestep Congress last year to implement aspects of the DREAM Act using executive action. The administration deferred, for two years, the removal of certain illegal immigrants.

The issue resurfaced earlier this year in the Senate’s Gang of Eight amnesty bill. And now it appears the House is preparing to introduce its own legislation as part of its piece-by-piece approach to immigration reform.

The House proposal, tentatively called the Kids Act, is the work of two Virginia Republicans: Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte. Last week, Heritage called on the lawmakers to make text of the legislation available so the public can examine it in the context of other immigration proposals. They said it wasn’t written yet.

---  DREAM Act: Heritage Foundation Recommendations

Even without legislative language, conservatives know enough about previous proposals to be skeptical. Over the past decade, both Democrats and Republicans have rejected numerous bills mirroring the DREAM Act.

Heritage’s Jessica Zuckerman warned that “Any DREAM Act legislation put on the table this time around is not likely to be different from these very proposals that Congress has tried and rejected in the past.”

To help members of Congress understand what’s at stake, Heritage compiled recommendations and Zuckerman pinpointed five questions that must be addressed at today’s committee hearing. They include:
  1. Would this endanger the lives of children by encouraging greater trafficking across the increasingly dangerous U.S.-Mexico border?
  2. Is the proposal fair to the estimated 4.4 million people who are waiting to come to the U.S. legally?
  3. Would it promote greater family chain migration, resulting in double or triple the number of illegal aliens ultimately receiving amnesty?
  4. What is to prevent DREAM Act legislation from becoming a vehicle for an amnesty like the Senate bill?
  5. What would make this different from the past proposals that have been repeatedly rejected by Congress?
Conservatives should be aware that any legislation passed by the House could become a vehicle for backroom deal-making that ultimately moves the Senate’s amnesty bill to Obama’s desk. That includes a version of the DREAM Act being debated today.

Appeals Court Rules Illegal Alien Rental Ordinance Unconstitutional

GOPUSA: For a second time, a federal appeals court ruled a Texas city's ordinance barring undocumented workers from renting within the city is unconstitutional.

In its ruling Monday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said the Farmers Branch ordinance infringed on the federal government's authority, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Monday's decision ended the Dallas suburb's second appeal to the court, which upheld a lower court ruling last year. The city sought a rehearing after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down parts of an Arizona law.

The appeals judges criticized Farmers Branch's ordinance, which would have required all renters to obtain licenses proving they were in the United States legally. They also criticized the plan to fine or revoke licenses of landlords who leased to immigrants lacking permits.

"The ordinance not only criminalizes occupancy of a rented apartment or single-family residence, but puts local officials in the impermissible position of arresting and detaining persons based on their immigration status without federal direction and supervision," the court said.

City officials said they were reviewing the decision and hadn't decided whether to appeal, the Morning News said.

Ana Reyes, the first Hispanic to serve the city's council, praised the ruling and said she wanted the city to drop the issue.

"The anti-immigration ordinance was outside of our local jurisdiction," she said. "It is unconstitutional. This issue has been extremely divisive and costly for the citizens of Farmers Branch. It's now time to move forward and reinvest our residents' hard-earned tax dollars back into our community."

CATO VIew of Amnesty Bill

Note Before reading or viewing the video: Can we trust the Government to do what is identified by the CATO video? In RESPONSE, I ask, "Where is the Fence" on the entire border that the previously promised?
------------------
CATO: Opponents of increased immigration say the main bill being debated in Congress is nothing more than "amnesty," a free pass for unauthorized workers.

The real implications of the bill are far more complex.

An immigrant in this country illegally can qualify for "registered provisional immigrant status" - a work permit - if he ...

was in the country prior to 2012,
pays any and all outstanding tax bills,
goes through national security and background checks,
AND pays a thousand dollar fine and a 500 dollar fee.

Only then will he get a work permit -- which is valid for six years. But if an immigrant wants to continue working in the United States after that ... he'll have to apply for a new permit and ...

Pay another 500 dollar fee,
Prove that he's been employed during the entire 6 year period at no...

Being Legal Doesn't End Poverty

by Jennifer Medina, The New York Times: LOS ANGELES - Those pressing for change in the countrys immigration system like to say that creating a path to citizenship will bring the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants out of the shadows. It is taken as a given that legal status will help them climb the economic ladder.

But in this city, and in urban areas across the country, it seems clear that even with full citizenship, many could remain in the shadow economy, earning cash for low-wage jobs.

Millions of workers in the United States those who sew clothes, mow lawns, care for children, construct homes, clean offices and serve food function almost entirely in a cash economy. For undocumented immigrants, working for cash tends to be the most reliable way to earn an income while avoiding any attention from the government.

Advocates of the immigration bill have used economic mobility as an argument for legalizing the millions already living here. They enthusiastically embraced a Congressional Budget Office report last month that said the Senates immigration bill would increase the size of the labor force and lead to greater productivity, which would raise average wages in the long term and have broad economic impact. Last week, business groups continued to pressure House Repub licans to consider similar legislation.

But it is hardly a given that citizenship is a route to better jobs.

Having legal status takes away one threat that people held over their workers, but it doesnt do much more than that, in the workplace, said Victor Narro, the project director for the Labor Center at the University of California, Los Angeles.

When the Labor Center studied wage violations in 2009, it found that foreigners in general were more likely than native-born workers to b e paid less than the minimum wage and that undocumented immigrants, particularly women, were even worse off. But the study also found that foreign-born workers who were legal residents were almost twice as likely to be paid less than the minimum wage as American-born employees.

Until you have the government stepping in and creating real enforcement of worker protections, were going to have the same kinds of problems we have now. Employers are not going to start doing that voluntarily, Mr. Narro said.

Countless workers earning a low hourly wage regardless of their legal status are paid in cash. Some are keen to avoid paying taxes on their modest income, while others feel trapped by a conundrum: work for cash, or dont work at all.

Many of these workers are domestic employees in informal settings, like a day laborer picked up on a street corner or a nanny found through a social network, with homeowners who are reluctant to think of themselves as employers who are legally obliged to file for taxes, or reluctant to take on the cost and paperwork that taxes entail. Others work for businesses with dozens of employees that have come to rely on cash paydays as a way to cut costs.

We see employers in a number of industries act as if there is a third-class labor market that is paid below the minimum wage and are made to suffer all manner of violations of labor law, said Nik Theodore, an associate professor in urban planning and policy at the University of Illinois, Chicago. For many employers it is a calculated risk that they are willing to take. They trust that their employees arent going to report them and that nobody from the government is actually going to come check. When you have workers in desperate need of work, they are going to be willing to do a lot of things.

Over all, unreported income amounts to roughly $2 trillion annually, but cash wages make up only a portion of that estimate, according to Edgar L. Feige, an emeritus professor of economics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, who has spent decades examining underground and cash economies, in part by using information on how much cash is in circulation at any given time. There is no way of knowing how many workers are earning their salaries in cash, Professor Feige said.

Whatever unreported economy that exists, it goes well beyond immigration, he said. The cash economy is particularly important in California, which has more undocumented immigrants than any other state and the eighth largest economy in the world. The sheer size of the immigrant work force and economy allows business owners to create a norm of paying off the books that would be unthinkable in another time or place, said Ruth Milkman, a labor expert and professor of sociology at the City University of New York Graduate Center.

Employers have really gotten into the habit that this is the normal way of doing business, Professor Milkman said. They dont particularly want to change, and nobody is making them do it. The immigration bill certainly doesnt change much for employers who take the low road.

Day laborers, those men standing in front of Home Depots and on street corners looking for whatever work comes their way, are perhaps the most widely recognizable stream of cash workers. Often, these men were mechanics, engineers or even architects and doctors in their home countries. The vast majority are undocumented immigrants. But in recent years, with the economy struggling, more of these immigrants have been standing in lots next to citizens, who are equally eager to find work, said Chris Newman, the legal director for th e National Day Laborer Organizing Network.

We see people who rotate in and out, they come find work for the day and go to another job at night, Mr. Newman said. You lose a foothold in the formal economy and its a natural place to go.

Last month, the Labor Department reported that there are 2.7 million temp workers, more than ever before. As more large companies rely on temp agencies to fill their ranks, it is possible that more American workers, legally or not, could be treated like day laborers who can be employed one day and out of a job the next. Mr. Newman repeated something that he has said to himself over and over again amid the debate in W ashington: Immigration laws are malleable, but the law of supply and demand is immutable. The way he sees it, as long as there is growing demand for an informal labor market, there will be people to supply that work force.

Boehner Comments on the Need for Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON, DC – At his weekly press briefing today, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) reiterated the House’s commitment to working toward immigration reform that’s fair to families, saying it’s “good for our country, and frankly it’s the right thing to do.”  Following are Boehner’s remarks:
“Now, this principle of fairness should extend to the issue of immigration as well.  Americans expect, as a nation of laws, that we’ll enforce them - starting at the border. I think it’s only fair.  They expect that no one who broke our laws will get special treatment.  People expect that there should be fairness for children who came to this country illegally, but through no fault of their own.  And they see no fairness in giving out most green cards based on the basis of luck, instead of considering people’s education and their skills.

“So, I’ve said before and I’ll say it again: we need immigration reform.  It’s good for our country, and frankly it’s the right thing to do.

“And that’s why the committees of the House will continue to do their work.  I’m grateful for all of our members who’ve worked on this issue on both sides of the aisle.  Not just members of the relevant committees, but both Republicans and Democrats who’ve worked in a bipartisan fashion, including Congressman Sam Johnson and Judge Carter, Mario Diaz-Balart, all of whom have shown real leadership on this issue.”

The Movie that Could Kill the Immigration Bill

Political correctness kept it out of the theaters, but this documentary is storming the nation, anyway.
Show this movie to your friends, and get them to take action before House votes on immigration
Jim Robb, Vice President, Operations, NumbersUSA: Sean Hannity used to support amnesty. Then he met Dennis Michael Lynch. So impressed by Lynch's compelling new documentary, They Come to America 2: The Cost of Amnesty, Hannity devoted an entire show to interviewing Lynch and others about it.

I think the movie is powerful enough that we are giving away free DVDs as our way of thanking everyone who donates to us over the next seven days. We hope you'll be so moved by it that you'll show your friends and neighbors.

When you see this movie, you'll see why we believe every family in America should watch it. Let me correct myself: I think you'll see why every family in America would want to watch it.

NumbersUSA has not gotten into the film business. We're not selling this movie. We're trying to raise funds to block the most disastrous bill ever proposed in the U.S. Congress. We'll send one DVD to anyone who gives any donation of at least $25. We're giving this film as thanks to donors because we believe many of our members might find it very helpful to change others' minds, or stick up for their beliefs.
Bomb with Anthrax and Nuclear components

Anyone see any problems with this cargo coming across the border?

When Dennis Micheal Lynch created his first movie, he was taken aback by the anger of the politically correct forces who didn't want it shown. Audiences loved it, but theaters and film festivals across the country were cowed into blackballing it.

This time, Dennis has certainly perfected his art. He starts with a discussion on political correctness, and ends up recording a harrowing life-or-death adventure into the No-Man's-Land of our border lands, controlled by drug-runners and terrorists. Dennis even takes a fake, conspicuous anthrax bomb across the Southwestern border, drives it to Virginia, and loads it onto an auto train!

When we offered Dennis' first movie to our members, I told you about my wife's reaction. She watched it in absolute silence, and when it was over she turned to me and said, "Wow, you've got to get that into the hands of all your members.It's inexcusable! Numbers has been right all along. This has got to be solved on the federal level. If you try to do something yourselves, you'll get shot, you'll get killed, you'll be called a vigilante."
I was very impressed, too, but I work with this issue every day. Well, let me tell you: Dennis has honed his story-telling skills... and his ability to find adventure. And I can honestly tell you that this movie isn't like other documentaries. It's riveting, even exciting.

Examining ICE Queen Janet Napolitano Deportation Numbers

With DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano resigning, it seems reasonable to review some of the ICE Queen's numbers. An article on July 6th addressed the failure of ICE, under the leadership of DHS Secretary, to depart illegals per President Obama previous pledge. Article follows.

ICE deporting fewer illegal immigrants this fiscal year,
but a larger percentage of them have no criminal records.
Napolitano was not meeting the Obama administration stated goals.
(ICE via Associated Press)
Numbers don’t add up on Obama’s pledge to deport more illegal immigrants
by Stephen Dinan: The Obama administration is deporting fewer people than it did in 2011 or 2012, but has ousted more than 110,000 illegal immigrants this year who didn’t have criminal records, according to statistics that call into question the Obama administration’s public statements about its deportation policies.

Continued deportation of rank-and-file illegal immigrants is fueling outrage by advocacy groups that want the Obama administration to halt most deportations while Congress hashes out an immigration bill.

“DHS consistently misleads the public about who it is deporting,” said Jessica Karp, staff attorney at the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. “The Obama administration has created a ‘criminal immigrant’ boogeyman to justify unprecedented deportation levels. But when we look at the facts, again and again we see that the majority of those deported have no or only very minor misdemeanor convictions, including traffic offenses.”

Deportations have long been a contentious issue for the administration, which is trying to balance Republican demands that it enforce the law against Hispanic lawmakers and interest groups that say the president is deporting too many people already.

The latest numbers released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to The Washington Times show that so far in fiscal 2013, the administration has deported more than 110,000 illegal immigrants who had no criminal records.

Numbers compiled and released by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a research group at Syracuse University, show the administration has begun pursuing deportation against about 100,000 people for immigration violations, rather than criminal charges, so far this year.

TRAC, which looks at federal filings in immigration courts, says 14.7 percent of removal cases filed by the administration this year have alleged criminal violations. That figure has dropped steadily from 16.6 percent in 2010.

Although the drop isn’t steep, the trend suggests that the administration is finding it increasingly difficult to meet its goal of deporting 400,000 people a year while focusing chiefly on the most dangerous immigrants.

“They’re not achieving their stated goals,” said David Burnham at TRAC. “They have been claiming ‘We’re going to go after criminals,’ and this decline is big in comparison to that rhetoric.”

ICE officials dispute the TRAC numbers, saying they don’t show an accurate snapshot of the deportation picture.

The agency, which handles interior enforcement and deportations, said the TRAC criminal data highlights cases in which ICE is trying to deport legal immigrants who committed crimes. In cases involving illegal immigrants, ICE can deport them for being in the country illegally and doesn’t need to resort to arguing their criminal history, so potential criminal behavior doesn’t show up in those numbers.

“As such, the TRAC data does not measure the number of convicted criminals ICE removes and is actually indicative of our use of discretion in not seeking to strip green card holders of their status for petty crimes,” said an ICE official who asked not to be named.

The deportation numbers ICE released to The Times back up that complex picture.

They show that through June 1, ICE had deported 246,333 immigrants, which is a dip in the total number of deportations from the 264,518 recorded at this point in 2011 or the 275,067 at this point in 2012.

Of those deported this year, 55 percent had criminal records. That is higher than the 53 percent in 2012, but less than the 56.7 percent in 2011.

The numbers have been released at a time when the immigration issue is dominating Capitol Hill.

The Senate passed an immigration bill to legalize illegal immigrants and even to let some previously deported illegal immigrants apply to come back into the U.S. under the same terms. But prospects for getting a similar bill out of the House and striking a final compromise are increasingly dim.

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, demanded that the House take and pass the Senate bill as is, but House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, laughed off that suggestion, saying the Senate bill puts illegal immigrants ahead of security.

“I’ve made it clear, and I’ll make it clear again: The House does not intend to take up the Senate bill,” Mr. Boehner said. “The American people expect that we’ll have strong border security in place before we begin the process of legalizing and fixing our legal immigration system.”

The Obama administration contends it has enough funding to deport about 400,000 people each year, and Mr. Obama said his agents should focus on deporting those with the most serious criminal histories or other priority categories. ICE issued several memos making most rank-and-file illegal immigrants exempt from deportation.

The most famous of those memos was issued last year and carved out so-called Dreamers, the young adults who arrived in the U.S. as children. The administration said Dreamers should not be deported and should be given work permits.

Groups that want a crackdown argue that the administration is artificially boosting its deportation statistics and say the real number being deported from the interior of the U.S. is much lower.

But immigrant rights groups say the figures show the administration is deporting many people without criminal records, which contradicts what the administration says is its position.

According to ICE statistics, the administration had deported 110,937 people who didn’t have criminal records between Oct. 1 and June 1, which comprise the first eight months of fiscal 2013.

In a statement, ICE said it is trying to balance its goals.

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is focused on sensible, effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes the removal of criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators,” an agency spokeswoman said.

The administration also argues that many of those it is deporting without criminal records still meet its other “priority” categories, which include fugitives who are ignoring deportation orders or repeatedly break immigration laws.

Napolitano Resigns as DHS Secretary

ARRA News Service (/7/12/2013) -  Today in Washington, D.C. - July 12, 2013
The rumors that Janet Napolitano would be stepping down were confirmed today with her formal announcement that she is resigning as Department of Homeland Security secretary to take a new position as become president of the University of California system. While she did not say, White house official indicated she will leaver her position in early September. Having worked in higher education, it is hard to believe that California, especially those in higher education, were able keep quiet about considering Janet Napolitano future nomination from the public. Napolitano's 27% Approval Rating by voters in August 2012 hasn't improved. And people still want answers on what she knew about Fast and Furious. It is not surprising that people on both sides of the political spectrum are glad to see her leave. . . . [Read Full Article]

Legal And Illegal Immigrants Gain At Expense of The Native-Born Americans

Investment Business Daily Editorial: Lost Opportunities: Immigrants, both legal and illegal, have accounted for all the job gains in the U.S. since 2000. With labor force participation rates at record lows, why do some tout the benefits of importing workers?

According to a White House report released Wednesday, the immigration legislation tinkered together by the Gang of Eight (or Gang of Ocho, as critics sneer) would increase real GDP by roughly $700 billion in 2023 and reduce the federal deficit by almost $850 billion over the next 20 years.

This would happen, we're told, by bringing illegal workers out of the shadow economy into the real economy where they'd pay taxes and contribute to society.

The long-term costs are ignored, though. The Heritage Foundation reckons the short-term tax boost would lead to a long-term drain of up to $6.3 trillion in benefits that legal taxpayers would have to fund for legalized immigrants over their lifetimes.

Indeed, while the Gang of Eight's bill bars amnestied immigrants from receiving most federal benefits for 10 years, the time-frame supporters tout as providing the boon, the costs will stack up after that.

The Congressional Budget Office analysis of the supposed benefits does not take into account the Medicare and Social Security liabilities that amnestied illegal aliens will begin accruing immediately.

While that debate rages, the Center for Immigration Studies has released a report questioning the need to import workers or amnesty those already here in an economy where the labor force participation rate is at a record low, millions have dropped out of the workforce and too many are underemployed because they can't find full-time employment, a situation ObamaCare already is making worse.

According to the CIS analysis, 22.4 million immigrants of working age held jobs at the beginning of this year, up 5.3 million over the total in 2000. Native-born workers with jobs dropped 1.3 million over that period, from 114.8 million to 113.5 million.

"Given the employment situation in the country, the dramatic increases in legal immigration contemplated by the Gang of Eight immigration bill seem out of touch with the realities of the U.S. labor market," say study authors Steven Camarota and Karen Zeigler.

We agree with that observation.

The total number of working-age (16-65) natives not working — unemployed or out of the labor force entirely — was nearly 59 million in the first quarter of this year, a figure that has changed little in the past three years and is nearly 18 million larger than in 2000.

It's the House Bill or Nothing on Immigration

Rep Tom Cotton, AR-04
Rep. Tom Cotton, Op-Ed, Wall Street Journal: America is a nation of immigrants, but we're also a nation of laws, and the U.S. immigration system should respect both traditions. Unfortunately, the Senate immigration bill undermines the rule of law without solving the country's illegal-immigration problem, and it will harm American workers. The House of Representatives will reject any proposal with the Senate bill's irreparably flawed structure, which is best described as: legalization first, enforcement later . . . maybe.

This basic design flaw repeats the mistake of the 1986 amnesty law, which, according to former Attorney General Edwin Meese, President Reagan considered the biggest mistake of his presidency. The Senate bill ensures, as did the 1986 law, that we'll have full legalization but little-to-no enforcement.

The Senate bill's advocates argue that its implementation of enforcement measures, such as extending the security fence on the border with Mexico, will precede and be a "trigger" for opening a path to citizenship. But these advocates are conflating legalization and citizenship. America has approximately 12 million illegal immigrants, who chiefly desire the right to live and work here legally. The Senate bill legalizes them a mere six months after enactment.

In the bill, legalization comes with trivial preconditions. Pay a "fine"? Yes, but it's less than $7 per month and can be waived. Pay back taxes? Only if a tax lien has already been filed, which will be rare for undocumented work. Pass a criminal-background check? Yes, with a gaping exception allowed for illegal immigrants with up to two misdemeanors—or more, if the convictions occurred on the same day—even if these were pleaded down from felony offenses and included serious offenses such as domestic violence and drunken driving.

This approach is unjust and counterproductive. We should welcome the many foreigners patiently obeying our laws and waiting overseas to immigrate legally. Instead, the Senate bill's instant, easy legalization rewards lawbreakers and thus encourages more illegal immigration.

What's worse, the bill's illusory enforcement mechanisms won't stop this illegal immigration. Effective enforcement requires a border fence, a visa-tracking system to catch visa overstayers, and a workable employment-verification system. The Senate bill fails on all three fronts.

The Secure Fence Act of 2006 mandated 700 miles of fencing, but the Senate bill merely restates this long-ignored requirement without mentioning specs or locations. It also doesn't prohibit delay-inducing lawsuits from fence opponents. Further, the bill explicitly lets the secretary of Homeland Security decline to build a fence in a specific location if she decides it's not "appropriate."

Instead, the bill throws billions of dollars at the border for new border-patrol agents (though not until 2017) and sensor technologies. These solutions are complements, not substitutes, for a fence. When I was a soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan, my units relied on guards and technology to secure our bases, but the first line of defense was always a physical perimeter.

That's because fences work. The fence built in the San Diego border sector dramatically reduced border crossings there from 100,000 per year to just 5,000 per year when it was completed in 2006, a 95% drop. Earlier this year, Israel reduced illegal crossings at its Sinai border to two per month from 2,000 per month by completing a fence. Why doesn't the Senate bill mandate an effective fence? The answer, plainly, is that the intention is not to build one.

Similarly, the Senate bill restates a 17-year-old requirement in federal law that the government have a functioning visa-tracking system. But it delays implementation for six years and increases by millions the visas available for low-skill immigrants. This will lead to more illegal immigration by visa overstayers, while depressing wages for young and lower-skill Americans. The bill also delays implementation of the employment-verification system by at least five years and doesn't require mandatory effectiveness levels for the system.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office recognizes that these enforcement measures will be largely ineffective. The CBO estimates that, even with them, annual illegal immigration will decline by only one-third to one-half compared with current projections. After 10 years, the CBO predicts, the illegal-immigrant population will have declined to only eight million from today's 12 million. So much for solving the problem. All we're doing is setting up the next amnesty.

But it's actually worse because even these modest enforcement measures likely won't happen. Any future Congress can defund these programs, as has happened too often. The bill grants enforcement discretion to the bureaucracy in hundreds of instances. Opponents can tie up the bill in court for years, which would block implementation of key enforcement measures but not the path to citizenship. This is exactly what happened with the 1986 law: legalization now and enforcement never.

And what's to stop President Obama from refusing to enforce this law? After all, he just announced he won't enforce ObamaCare's employer mandate because of complaints from big business. If that's his attitude toward his biggest legislative accomplishment, imagine what he'll do when big business complains about, say, an employment-verification system he never wanted to begin with.

If enforcement fails, what's more likely: that legalized persons won't become citizens or that future Congresses will simply relax or eliminate the required "triggers"? If past is prologue, we know the answer.

Given all this history, the American people rightly doubt that the government will finally enforce immigration laws. Thus the best solution is to abandon the Senate bill's flawed framework and proceed with an enforcement-first approach that assures Americans that the border is secure and immigration laws are being enforced. The House is already pursuing that goal with committee-approved bills such as the Legal Workforce Act, which expedites the employment-verification system, and the SAFE Act, which empowers local and state law-enforcement officers to enforce immigration laws.

If the full House approves such bills, they should be sent directly to the Senate for consideration. They should not be handed to a conference committee so that they can be reconciled with the Senate bill—the Senate and House measures are irreconcilable. Instead, the Senate must choose whether it wants common-sense, confidence-building immigration legislation this year.

If the Senate insists on the legalization-first approach, then no bill will be enacted. Meanwhile, the House will remain focused on addressing ObamaCare, the economy and the national debt—which, after all, Americans overwhelmingly regard as higher priorities than immigration reform.

July 15th in Washington, D.C.: Anti-Amnesty March and Rally

The Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) has organized an anti-amnesty march and rally -- the DC March for Jobs -- in Washington, D.C. on Monday, July 15th. The goal is to "demand that our leaders reject amnesty, enforce immigration laws as written, and support policies that put black U.S. citizens back to work."

We believe it is time that members of Congress act to preserve economic opportunity for American workers - and pass immigration legislation that protects and supports the nearly 22 million American citizens who do not have jobs, or cannot find adequate employment to support their families. Economists report that labor participation in the U.S. is at its lowest rate in over 30 years.

Despite sluggish economic conditions, some in Congress have put forth immigration proposals to increase legal immigration levels by 50% and provide amnesty to over 11 million people who have entered the country illegally. We stand against these proposals, as they will result in adding millions more to the U.S. labor force, putting millions of American citizens out of work.

As their web site notes, if the Gang of Eight's immigration bill is enacted, it "will be costly for all Americans, but will harm black American workers more than any other group. Mass immigration and amnesty puts those poorest Americans from all walks of life out of work and suppresses wages, causing them to compete with aliens willing to work in poorer working conditions for cheaper pay. When 22 million Americans are either out of work or unemployed, now is no time to further over-saturate the labor force with increased immigration levels and amnesty. If Congress doesn't stop this irresponsible legislation, the United States will continue to see more and more Americans of all races out of jobs and on the streets."

The list of speakers for the event includes:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.)
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa)
Former Rep. Alan West (Fla.);
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.);
State Sen. Elbert Guillory (R-La.);
Frank Morris, former Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation;
Mike Cutler, former INS Agent; and
Dennis Michael Lynch, filmmaker .

What: DC March for Jobs
When: Monday, July 15, 2013 -- 9:30 a.m.
Where: Starts at Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC
For more information, visit www.dcmarchforjobs.com/
Alternatively, you can call 202-349-0858 or send an email to info@blackallianceorg.org

The Black American Leadership Alliance and other participants will call upon Congress to:
• Recognize the devastating effects illegal immigration and amnesty have on low-skilled workers, particularly those in minority communities;
• Enforce current immigration laws, and;
• Fulfill their duties to the millions of Americans struggling to find work by opposing amnesty and supporting policies to reduce overall levels of legal and illegal immigration, and to protect American jobs from irresponsible immigration legislation.

Get your Representatives to Commit #NoS744Conference

If you tell a lie long enough . . .
by Kenneth Wallis, Little Rock Immigration Examiner: S744 is a path to legal status bill filled with empty promises of security, pork type waivers to bribe officials, and more power to the faceless bureaucrats that have failed to stop illegal immigration. The United States Senate passed yet another attempt to replace informed citizens with 3rd world voters. Despite the outcry from citizens, the failure of previous amnesties, and the corruption of the Federal Government, S744 passed the United States Senate. If any immigration bill is passed out of the House, it will give the corrupt bureaucracy of Washington DC the chance to conference the House bill with S744. Contact members of congress and get them to promise that they will not pass ANY immigration bill of any kind, especially in the United States House Judiciary Committee. Here’s an example of you need your Representative to say.

I will not introduce or vote for any immigration bill in the United States House that can be conferenced with S744, the immigration “reform” bill that was voted on in the Senate. I will fight against every attempt to pass a bill that can be conferenced with S744. I do not believe the lies that illegal aliens are doing the jobs Americans won’t do; an immigration bill is the only way to save the Republican Party (if your representative is a Republican), that illegal immigrants are the backbone of the United States Economy, or that we can’t force illegal aliens to leave by self deportation. I know that passing a path to legal status is worse than “doing nothing” and that self deportation laws should be passed instead.

I’m glad that former Republican Governor Huckabee has come out against S744. I had to fight Huckabee’s in-state tuition for illegal aliens bill in Arkansas and feared that the promises in S744 would fool him as has so many other Republicans.

Here’s video from the Huckabee Show Website.

If the Immigration Bill Passes

Kerby Anderson
by Kerby Anderson, Point of View: We all know people who make promises but don’t follow through and keep those promises. Over time we learn not to put our trust in promises they make. That principle we apply in our personal life is a principle we need to apply in our political life.

Victor Davis Hanson speculates about what will happen if the current immigration bill passes. He believes there are “lots of reasons to believe that most of what is promised” in the comprehensive immigration bill “won’t be honored.”

First, this administration has not had a very good record of living up to its policy promises and predictions. Perhaps the best example has been the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Lots of promises were made about cost and efficiency that have not come true. Another example would be the predictions of how the various stimulus packages would reduce unemployment and stimulate the economy.

Second, this administration has not always been willing to enforce existing law. It is reasonable to assume it will do no better enforcing this new law. Two examples illustrate this point. The President disagreed with the Defense of Marriage Act and instructed his Attorney General not to enforce it. Never mind that this bill was passed with substantial majorities in the House and Senate and signed by President Clinton.

In the same manner, the President instructed his administration to no longer follow the statutory requirements of the No Child Left Behind law. This bill was co-authored by Senator Ted Kennedy and Representative John Boehner and signed by President Bush.

Third, the history of immigration legislation is not one of the rule of law, but more influenced by politics and pressure groups. Previous presidents often caved to the whims of the public and the pressure of various constituencies.

It’s no wonder many Americans have become cynical about the political process. Past history makes them skeptical that the current immigration legislation will make a difference.

Amnesty Myth: They'll Learn English

ProEnglishOrg: Politicians such as President Barack Obama and Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, among many others, have assured us that illegal immigrants will need to learn English in order to gain legal status. Is this true? NO!

The politicians in Washington keep saying "They'll have to learn English" as part of their recently passed immigration bill. The bill S. 744 passed on June 27th, by 68 to 32 vote. Despite the politicians' rhetoric, the bill lacks meaningful English language requirements.
