BORDER SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT IMPROVEMENTS

     By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.) (INA), the Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Public Law 109‑367) (Secure Fence Act), and the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (Public Law 104‑208 Div. C) (IIRIRA), and in order to ensure the safety and territorial integrity of the United States as well as to ensure that the Nation's immigration laws are faithfully executed, I hereby order as follows:

     Section 1.  Purpose.  Border security is critically important to the national security of the United States.  Aliens who illegally enter the United States without inspection or admission present a significant threat to national security and public safety.  Such aliens have not been identified or inspected by Federal immigration officers to determine their admissibility to the United States.  The recent surge of illegal immigration at the southern border with Mexico has placed a significant strain on Federal resources and overwhelmed agencies charged with border security and immigration enforcement, as well as the local communities into which many of the aliens are placed.

     Transnational criminal organizations operate sophisticated drug- and human-trafficking networks and smuggling operations on both sides of the southern border, contributing to a significant increase in violent crime and United States deaths from dangerous drugs.  Among those who illegally enter are those who seek to harm Americans through acts of terror or criminal conduct.  Continued illegal immigration presents a clear and present danger to the interests of the United States.

     Federal immigration law both imposes the responsibility and provides the means for the Federal Government, in cooperation with border States, to secure the Nation's southern border.  Although Federal immigration law provides a robust framework for Federal-State partnership in enforcing our immigration laws ‑‑ and the Congress has authorized and provided appropriations to secure our borders ‑‑ the Federal Government has failed to discharge this basic sovereign responsibility.  The purpose of this order is to direct executive departments and agencies (agencies) to deploy all lawful means to secure the Nation's southern border, to prevent further illegal immigration into the United States, and to repatriate illegal aliens swiftly, consistently, and humanely.

     Sec. 2.  Policy.  It is the policy of the executive branch to:

     (a)  secure the southern border of the United States through the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border, monitored and supported by adequate personnel so as to prevent illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking, and acts of terrorism;

     (b)  detain individuals apprehended on suspicion of violating Federal or State law, including Federal immigration law, pending further proceedings regarding those violations;

     (c)  expedite determinations of apprehended individuals' claims of eligibility to remain in the United States;

     (d)  remove promptly those individuals whose legal claims to remain in the United States have been lawfully rejected, after any appropriate civil or criminal sanctions have been imposed; and

     (e)  cooperate fully with States and local law enforcement in enacting Federal-State partnerships to enforce Federal immigration priorities, as well as State monitoring and detention programs that are consistent with Federal law and do not undermine Federal immigration priorities.

     Sec. 3.  Definitions.  (a)  "Asylum officer" has the meaning given the term in section 235(b)(1)(E) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1225(b)(1)).

     (b)  "Southern border" shall mean the contiguous land border between the United States and Mexico, including all points of entry.

     (c)  "Border States" shall mean the States of the United States immediately adjacent to the contiguous land border between the United States and Mexico.

     (d)  Except as otherwise noted, "the Secretary" shall refer to the Secretary of Homeland Security.

     (e)  "Wall" shall mean a contiguous, physical wall or other similarly secure, contiguous, and impassable physical barrier.

     (f)  "Executive department" shall have the meaning given in section 101 of title 5, United States Code.

     (g)  "Regulations" shall mean any and all Federal rules, regulations, and directives lawfully promulgated by agencies.

     (h)  "Operational control" shall mean the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.

     Sec. 4.  Physical Security of the Southern Border of the United States.  The Secretary shall immediately take the following steps to obtain complete operational control, as determined by the Secretary, of the southern border:

     (a)  In accordance with existing law, including the Secure Fence Act and IIRIRA, take all appropriate steps to immediately plan, design, and construct a physical wall along the southern border, using appropriate materials and technology to most effectively achieve complete operational control of the southern border;

     (b)  Identify and, to the extent permitted by law, allocate all sources of Federal funds for the planning, designing, and constructing of a physical wall along the southern border;

     (c)  Project and develop long-term funding requirements for the wall, including preparing Congressional budget requests for the current and upcoming fiscal years; and

     (d)  Produce a comprehensive study of the security of the southern border, to be completed within 180 days of this order, that shall include the current state of southern border security, all geophysical and topographical aspects of the southern border, the availability of Federal and State resources necessary to achieve complete operational control of the southern border, and a strategy to obtain and maintain complete operational control of the southern border.

     Sec. 5.  Detention Facilities.  (a)  The Secretary shall take all appropriate action and allocate all legally available resources to immediately construct, operate, control, or establish contracts to construct, operate, or control facilities to detain aliens at or near the land border with Mexico.

     (b)  The Secretary shall take all appropriate action and allocate all legally available resources to immediately assign asylum officers to immigration detention facilities for the purpose of accepting asylum referrals and conducting credible fear determinations pursuant to section 235(b)(1) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1225(b)(1)) and applicable regulations and reasonable fear determinations pursuant to applicable regulations.

     (c)  The Attorney General shall take all appropriate action and allocate all legally available resources to immediately assign immigration judges to immigration detention facilities operated or controlled by the Secretary, or operated or controlled pursuant to contract by the Secretary, for the purpose of conducting proceedings authorized under title 8, chapter 12, subchapter II, United States Code.

     Sec. 6.  Detention for Illegal Entry.  The Secretary shall immediately take all appropriate actions to ensure the detention of aliens apprehended for violations of immigration law pending the outcome of their removal proceedings or their removal from the country to the extent permitted by law.  The Secretary shall issue new policy guidance to all Department of Homeland Security personnel regarding the appropriate and consistent use of lawful detention authority under the INA, including the termination of the practice commonly known as "catch and release," whereby aliens are routinely released in the United States shortly after their apprehension for violations of immigration law.

     Sec. 7.  Return to Territory.  The Secretary shall take appropriate action, consistent with the requirements of section 1232 of title 8, United States Code, to ensure that aliens described in section 235(b)(2)(C) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1225(b)(2)(C)) are returned to the territory from which they came pending a formal removal proceeding.

     Sec. 8.  Additional Border Patrol Agents.  Subject to available appropriations, the Secretary, through the Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, shall take all appropriate action to hire 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents, and all appropriate action to ensure that such agents enter on duty and are assigned to duty stations as soon as is practicable.

     Sec. 9.  Foreign Aid Reporting Requirements.  The head of each executive department and agency shall identify and quantify all sources of direct and indirect Federal aid or assistance to the Government of Mexico on an annual basis over the past five years, including all bilateral and multilateral development aid, economic assistance, humanitarian aid, and military aid.  Within 30 days of the date of this order, the head of each executive department and agency shall submit this information to the Secretary of State.  Within 60 days of the date of this order, the Secretary shall submit to the President a consolidated report reflecting the levels of such aid and assistance that has been provided annually, over each of the past five years.

     Sec. 10.  Federal-State Agreements.  It is the policy of the executive branch to empower State and local law enforcement agencies across the country to perform the functions of an immigration officer in the interior of the United States to the maximum extent permitted by law.

     (a)  In furtherance of this policy, the Secretary shall immediately take appropriate action to engage with the Governors of the States, as well as local officials, for the purpose of preparing to enter into agreements under section 287(g) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1357(g)).

     (b)  To the extent permitted by law, and with the consent of State or local officials, as appropriate, the Secretary shall take appropriate action, through agreements under section 287(g) of the INA, or otherwise, to authorize State and local law enforcement officials, as the Secretary determines are qualified and appropriate, to perform the functions of immigration officers in relation to the investigation, apprehension, or detention of aliens in the United States under the direction and the supervision of the Secretary.  Such authorization shall be in addition to, rather than in place of, Federal performance of these duties.

     (c)  To the extent permitted by law, the Secretary may structure each agreement under section 287(g) of the INA in the manner that provides the most effective model for enforcing Federal immigration laws and obtaining operational control over the border for that jurisdiction.

     Sec. 11.  Parole, Asylum, and Removal.  It is the policy of the executive branch to end the abuse of parole and asylum provisions currently used to prevent the lawful removal of removable aliens.

     (a)  The Secretary shall immediately take all appropriate action to ensure that the parole and asylum provisions of Federal immigration law are not illegally exploited to prevent the removal of otherwise removable aliens.

     (b)  The Secretary shall take all appropriate action, including by promulgating any appropriate regulations, to ensure that asylum referrals and credible fear determinations pursuant to section 235(b)(1) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1125(b)(1)) and 8 CFR 208.30, and reasonable fear determinations pursuant to 8 CFR 208.31, are conducted in a manner consistent with the plain language of those provisions.

     (c)  Pursuant to section 235(b)(1)(A)(iii)(I) of the INA, the Secretary shall take appropriate action to apply, in his sole and unreviewable discretion, the provisions of section 235(b)(1)(A)(i) and (ii) of the INA to the aliens designated under section 235(b)(1)(A)(iii)(II).

     (d)  The Secretary shall take appropriate action to ensure that parole authority under section 212(d)(5) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1182(d)(5)) is exercised only on a case-by-case basis in accordance with the plain language of the statute, and in all circumstances only when an individual demonstrates urgent humanitarian reasons or a significant public benefit derived from such parole.

     (e)  The Secretary shall take appropriate action to require that all Department of Homeland Security personnel are properly trained on the proper application of section 235 of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (8 U.S.C. 1232) and section 462(g)(2) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 279(g)(2)), to ensure that unaccompanied alien children are properly processed, receive appropriate care and placement while in the custody of the Department of Homeland Security, and, when appropriate, are safely repatriated in accordance with law.

     Sec. 12.  Authorization to Enter Federal Lands.  The Secretary, in conjunction with the Secretary of the Interior and any other heads of agencies as necessary, shall take all appropriate action to:

     (a)  permit all officers and employees of the United States, as well as all State and local officers as authorized by the Secretary, to have access to all Federal lands as necessary and appropriate to implement this order; and

     (b)  enable those officers and employees of the United States, as well as all State and local officers as authorized by the Secretary, to perform such actions on Federal lands as the Secretary deems necessary and appropriate to implement this order.

     Sec. 13.  Priority Enforcement.  The Attorney General shall take all appropriate steps to establish prosecution guidelines and allocate appropriate resources to ensure that Federal prosecutors accord a high priority to prosecutions of offenses having a nexus to the southern border.

     Sec. 14.  Government Transparency.  The Secretary shall, on a monthly basis and in a publicly available way, report statistical data on aliens apprehended at or near the southern border using a uniform method of reporting by all Department of Homeland Security components, in a format that is easily understandable by the public.

     Sec. 15.  Reporting.  Except as otherwise provided in this order, the Secretary, within 90 days of the date of this order, and the Attorney General, within 180 days, shall each submit to the President a report on the progress of the directives contained in this order.

     Sec. 16.  Hiring.  The Office of Personnel Management shall take appropriate action as may be necessary to facilitate hiring personnel to implement this order.

     Sec. 17.  General Provisions.  (a)  Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

          (i)   the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

          (ii)  the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

     (b)  This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

     (c)  This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

President Trump moves to build border wall, block funding to ‘sanctuary cities’

WASHINGTON — President Trump moved aggressively to tighten the nation’s immigration policies Wednesday, signing executive actions to jumpstart construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall and block federal grants from immigrant-protecting “sanctuary cities.”

“We’ve been talking about this right from the beginning,” Trump said during a brief signing ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security.

...Trump cast his actions as fulfillment of his campaign pledge to enact hard-line immigration measures, including construction of a wall paid for by Mexico.

While Trump has repeatedly said the border structure will be a wall, his spokesman Sean Spicer said more generally Wednesday the president was ordering construction of a “large physical barrier.”

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who has insisted his country will not pay for a wall, is to meet with Trump at the White House next week.

The orders Trump signed Wednesday also increase the number of border patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to be hired. And the president ordered the end of what Republicans have labeled a catch-and-release system at the border...

Later in the week, Trump is expected to sign orders restricting the flow of refugees into the United States...

Trump campaigned on pledges to tighten U.S. immigration policies, including strengthening border security and stemming the flow of refugees. His call for a border wall was among his most popular proposals with supporters, who often broke out in chants of “build that wall” during rallies.

In response to terrorism concerns, Trump controversially called for halting entry to the U.S. from Muslim countries. He later turned to a focus on “extreme vetting” for those coming from countries with terrorism ties.

To build the wall, the president may rely on a 2006 law that authorized several hundred miles of fencing along the 2,000-mile frontier. That bill led to the construction of about 700 miles of various kinds of fencing designed to block both vehicles and pedestrians.

The Secure Fence Act was signed by then-President George W. Bush, and the majority of that fencing in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California was built before he left office. The last remnants were completed after President Obama took office in 2009.

The Trump administration also must adhere to a decades-old border treaty with Mexico...

Trump’s order to crack down on sanctuary cities — locales that don’t cooperate with immigration authorities — could cost individual jurisdictions millions of dollars....

It appeared as though the refugee restrictions were still being finalized. ...

There is also likely to be an exception for those fleeing religious persecution if their religion is a minority in their country. That exception could cover Christians fleeing Muslim-majority nations.

As president, Trump can use an executive order to halt refugee processing. Bush used that same power in the immediate aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks. Refugee security vetting was reviewed and the process was restarted several months later.

OBAMA ENDS AIR WATCH ON DRUGS, ILLEGALS

If you had any lingering doubt that Obama was on-purpose trying to destroy America and Americans, and flood us with criminals, drugs, Jihadi, illegals, violence and death, then this new information could maybe tarnish the luster on your day.

“No Borders,” is a bad idea. That is, unless you’re a deranged liberal. The ones I’ve talked to seem to think these crimes on the border—of allowing illegal entry, catch, and release; or don’t even catch—are all just perfectly ducky. “I welcome all brothers and sisters,” they have said to me; whatever that means, I don’t know.

Whose brother? Whose sister? Oh, wait…I know, the 30 or 50 other family members each illegal could personally bring in. And then THEIR brothers and sisters.

Yeah. Right. Over the cold, dead body of America.

Oh. and talking to a liberal about ANYthing political is like talking to an inmate of a psychiatric center...

Forget it. Forget them. But here’s what I was going to tell you:

From Breitbart.com (Nov. 18, 2016):

“The new orders by the Obama Administration to release Haitians caught at the border will only exacerbate the current situation since Mexican cartels are now coaching illegal aliens on how to game the U.S. immigration system, Border Patrol agents said.

“As Breitbart Texas reported, the current administration is moving to release hundreds of Haitians being held in detection centers in Arizona and California.The result of that release will be a new marketing tool for Mexican cartels and human smuggling organizations, said Hector Garza, National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 President during an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas.

‘They are being told that all they have to do is request asylum and claim to be in fear and they will be released,’ said Garza who is a U.S. Border Patrol agent but is able to talk to the media in his capacity as local union president.

“In the case of Haitians, Breitbart Texas has reported on how they arrive to Mexico claiming to be African to receive a 20-day permit to pass through the country northward. With that permit, they have been arriving at U.S. international bridges requesting asylum.

“The move continues to overwhelm U.S. authorities as the number of asylum seekers continues to rise, adding more work to the already overwhelmed agents who, according to NBPC officials, [on purpose deprived by Obama] lack manpower, equipment, and help from Washington.”

And there’s this, also from Breitbart.com (Nov. 20, 2016):

“DHS officials quietly shutdown the military aerial support program known as Operation Phalanx…The DHS, which has a history of lying to the public about the actual situation along the Mexican border, asserted that illegal crossing have declined along the Texas-Mexico border…Breitbart Texas has reported extensively throughout the year about the increasing numbers of border crossing apprehensions…In the months leading up to the election of President-Elect Donald Trump, immigrants began flooding across the border at record numbers…Operation Phalanx utilized Nation Guard UH-72 Lakota helicopters specially equipped with night vision and other surveillance equipment…The shutdown of Operation Phalanx comes as [Obama’s personal, know-nothing sock puppet] Secretary Jeh Johnson’s term of service is about to come to an end. He will be replaced in January by a DHS Secretary selected by President-Elect Trump who has promised more aggressive action in securing the nation’s southern border….”

Jeh Johnson and Obama gone? Free at last! Free at last! Thank Father God Almighty for Donald Trump, because we are free at last!

That is…if Obama actually allows Trump to assume power; if he is not nullified by Obama’s Masters; if he is not harmed by the Marxist, Islamist, foreign Trillionaires and Rulers of Earth who finance and run this violent, sickening, entirely Democrat caper.



Car thief who left stolen dog to die in abandoned car gets 2 1/2 years in prison

A 35-year-old methamphetamine addict who stole a car with a dog inside, then later abandoned the car with the dog shut alive inside -- ultimately causing its death -- was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison Wednesday.

Francisco Vincent Gonzalez's attorney had asked for probation and drug treatment, noting his clients' out-of-control drug problem....

"I tell the truth -- I am very sorry," Gonzalez said, as he turned to face Kona's owner, Bill Robbins, who was seated in the courtroom gallery.

But Multnomah County Circuit Judge Kelly Skye told Gonzalez that probation was unacceptable given the extreme nature of what he'd done. Kona was waiting for Robbins in the Hyundai Elantra on April 7 during a 5-minute stop outside Robbins' recreational marijuana business, Sweet Leaf Illusions, on Southeast 82nd Avenue.

Robbins said he had left the car's engine and air conditioning running. He said the doors were locked, but he wonders if Kona somehow unlocked them.

Video surveillance shows Gonzalez approaching the car and driving off. The car was found five days later on April 12, after neighbors noticed the smell of a decomposing body and someone called police about the suspicious car near Southeast 91st and Cooper Street.

Investigators believe Kona died of heat stroke. The high on the day he was stolen was an unseasonably warm 87, followed by another day in the 80s.

"The harm caused here was significantly greater than the average stolen car or, frankly, stolen pet," the judge said. "There were multiple opportunities ...for the defendant to let the dog go."...

"All he had to do was open the door and let the dog out, and he didn't," Skye, the judge, said. "And there's a significant consequence to that."...

In October, Gonzalez pleaded guilty to a host of charges -- including first-degree animal abuse, animal abandonment, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and meth possession. He also pleaded guilty to first-degree theft and no contest to identity theft because he drove off with more than $1,000 in cash and tried to use Robbins' ATM card to get more money, authorities say.

Gonzalez's defense attorney, Bill Walsh, had argued to the judge that his client should receive a sentence that treats him similarly to other defendants who've hurt animals. ...

After the hearing, Kona's owner -- Robbins -- said he felt like justice was served for Kona. But Robbins said he, his supporters and prosecutor Brian Davidson had to fight hard for it.

Robbins said he and his supporters have collected 38,500 signatures urging lawmakers to change the law by creating harsher penalties for people who hurt animals.

Robbins and his supporters also have created a "Kona Alert" Facebook group that encompasses a network of people who will help find stolen dogs..

Robbins said in the seven months since Kona's death, he's felt a profound loss....

"He used to look out the front window, put his head on my shoulder," Robbins said. "I miss him every day."

Gonzalez was born in Mexico. In court papers, Gonzalez's defense attorney said that Gonzalez ultimately will be deported.
 

Trump deportations would hit Idaho ag, where a fourth of all workers are undocumented

What would happen to an industry that loses one-fourth or more of its employee base?

Idaho’s agriculture industry, and particularly its farming sector, might run head-on into that hypothetical question if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on a pledge to reverse his predecessor’s executive actions on immigration and deport undocumented immigrants en masse.

Agriculture represents about 4 percent of Idaho’s $65 billion annual gross domestic product, and about the same percentage of the state labor force..... - approximately 45,000...

But Pew’s analysis says Idaho’s undocumented workers dominate in the state’s agriculture industry....

The state’s agricultural industry employs more than 40 percent of Idaho’s undocumented immigrant population, and more than one-quarter of all state ag workers are undocumented. Idaho, Washington and Oregon are the only three states in the nation where agriculture is tops in both of those metrics, said Jeffrey Passel, senior demographer with Pew and one of the study’s authors.

The share of agriculture workers who are unauthorized “tends to be very high everywhere,” Passel said. But Idaho’s agriculture sector is “a little bit unusual” because it also employs the largest portion of the state’s unauthorized immigrants. Nationwide, construction and the leisure/hospitality industry, which includes hotel service workers, employ the most unauthorized immigrants.

“Just 4 percent of unauthorized workers are in agriculture” nationwide, Passel said.

IDAHO TOPS IN AMNESTY ELIGIBILITY

Idaho ranked first among states in the percentage of undocumented immigrants who could avoid deportation under President Obama’s executive action on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and related moves on pathways to citizenship — more than 60 percent, according to Pew. That’s because such a high percentage of Idaho’s undocumented population, nearly 9 out of 10, is Mexican. That population qualifies at a higher rate based on DACA’s criteria regarding longevity and family ties.

Trump has proposed immediately reversing Obama’s actions and deporting anyone in the U.S. illegally.

A measurable if imperfect proxy for undocumented population is foreign-born workers. .... Almost all are Hispanic, he said.

The state’s unemployment rate is tight at 3.8 percent. “We have been short of workers here for the last two or three years,” Troxel said.

‘DEPENDENT ON FOREIGN-BORN LABOR’

Troxel said that if workers are deported, “it will have impact.”

“If food prices go up because it can’t get harvested or processed by the existing workforce, then there’s going to be dramatic repercussions,” he said.

Like Troxel’s group, the Idaho Dairymen’s Association has supported and worked for immigration reform to address the status of undocumented workers. Dairy workers are needed year-round, not seasonally, so the industry has little use for H-2A visas granted to temporary agricultural workers.

“Any change in immigration policy that brings some certainty to what that policy is, is a positive...

Standing up to La Raza Racists in Los Angeles

Arthur  Schaper
 
As published Oct. 8, 2016  on Townhall.com

Los Angeles County was once a red area.

Ronald Reagan won LA in 1980—but it was a squeaker.  1984 was better. Of course, Reagan wiped the floor with Mondale across the country.

The last time a Republican Governor won LA? Pete Wilson, 1994, running on a platform of stopping illegal immigration.

The 2003 recall didn’t do much for GOP chances in Los Angeles. The majority voted “No!” to the recall, but wanted Schwarzenegger to be the next Governor.

Now, Los Angeles County has turned into a cesspool of illegal immigration, the lynchpin for Democratic dominance (besides the Bay Area). Poverty is the norm, with studded concentrations of extreme wealth dotting the rotten landscape.

Fifty years ago, Americans were flocking to the Golden State. Now, working families and small businesses can’t wait to leave. The state has turned into a sanctuary for criminals, and not just the ones who get elected in unopposed contests in election cycle after cycle. Felons can now vote … in prison!

The forces taking over Los Angeles are particularly violent and cruel.

The illegal alien amnesty panderers want open borders.  They want immediate citizenship.  They want the taxpayer-funded entitlement programs, because “we owe them.”

What drives this rabid—racist—crowd of activists?

For three decades, Chicano studies college courses in the Los Angeles area have indoctrinated Hispanic youth to believe that the United States of America stole territory from Mexico. Dave Hernandez, a full-on conservative Republican Angeleno, intimated to me how undergraduate ethnic “curricula” drive the harsh demand from a younger generation of Hispanics to take back California and bring it under Mexican auspices.

They need to revisit their history, much of which has been sadly “Brown-washed,” cloaked in ethnic hatred, rather than illuminated with truth. History lesson: during the Mexican-American war of 1846-1848, the majority of Mexican nationals wanted to become … Americans! They were hoping for the legal and cultural stability which the United States was developing. All of this, once again, comes back to culture. The American Revolution was an affirmation of right under Common Law. The French, Mexican, and Soviet Revolutions proceeded from a radical and fundamentally flawed view of human nature, i.e. that man is basically good, that power in the hands of the right people will make all things right.

Today’s progenitors of this political terrorism swarm the streets of Los Angeles County.

They are La Raza, or specifically known as “National Council of La Raza.” Also located in major urban (read, Democratic) areas like Chicago and New York City, they push an agenda for immigration “reform.”

They currently receive 15% of their funding from … the government. In effect, we are paying for foreign nationals and their abusive enablers to detract and demean this country. Check out this video by Grindall61, and you will see how brazen and contemptible these racist activists have become.

They fly the Mexican flag on American soil.

They rally to protect criminal illegal aliens, incarcerated in American jails, while American citizens are subject to their crimes and antics on our streets. They exalt illegal aliens and Muslim refugees above American citizens.

They take over city council meetings with raucous chants. They have stormed the streets in urban areas, especially Los Angeles, as they claim that unfettered illegal immigration is a human right, rather than an inhuman misdeed. Sadly, elected officials whom La Raza has bought and controlled are expanding their influence in Southern California, but not without a fight from the lawful American citizens, born and raised, who are helping to rebuild this country.

La Raza’s political allies include the corrupt, rogue city council of Huntington Park, which appointed two illegal aliens—yes, illegals—instead of two out of the many thousands of legal residents who live in the city. Did I forget to mention that they dismissed all the previous commissioners, all legal and law-abiding citizens in the city?

Their agenda is spreading like a corrosive cancer. Cudahy, Bell, Maywood—all sanctuary cities—invite the lawlessness which accompanies illegal immigration. Los Angeles, the Queen of ethnocentric crime and corruption, has turned into a warzone on the rule of law. US Senator Chuck Grassley is one of few statesmen demanding an investigation into why an illegal alien named Johnny Sanchez was able to set fire to an abandoned warehouse in Los Angeles … which claimed five American lives.

I have written before about the wild, destructive antics of La Raza against veterans, against conservatives. Their desperate antics are on full display here. Now, I have exposed their hateful agenda to my own city council, and they in turn have gotten fearful. Instead of running away or staying quiet, we California conservatives are standing up to these racist bullies. We have called out their antics, including their enablers. Check out this video for my full comments to the Torrance City Council.

One La Raza activist has (petulantly) threatened to shut down an upcoming local meeting in my city, where Latinos Por Trump will gather to signal their support for a candidate who will enforce the law, secure the border, and protect the citizenry. Learn more about these brave patriots who identify with their country, and not their skin color or their parents’ country of origin.

Even before I got on the Trump Train, I welcomed the Donald’s anti-PC rhetoric, and his stern capacity to tell the truth. The media lambastes Trump and Pence because they paint a dire picture of our country’s current state.

Domestic terrorists like these La Raza activists attack private property and reject the national integrity of the greatest nation on earth. These attacks should alarm us, awaken us to our need to step up, stand for what is right, and fight when necessary.

It’s about time that We the People took the threats to our sovereignty and national security seriously. Let’s push back against every enemy, foreign or domestic, who thinks anything less of the United States of America.

Let’s claim our true raza: American. Let’s Make America Great Again.

Oregon Department of Corrections: Criminal Alien Report June 2016

The Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) June 2016 Inmate Population Profile indicated there were 14,709 inmates incarcerated in the DOC's 14 prisons.

Data obtained from the DOC indicated that on June 1st there were 954 foreign nationals (criminal aliens) incarcerated in the state's prison system; more than one in every sixteen prisoners incarcerated by the state was a criminal alien, 6.48 percent of the total prison population.

Some background information, all 954 criminal aliens currently incarcerated in the DOC prison system were identified by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a federal law enforcement agency that is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If an inmate is identified by ICE as being a criminal alien, at the federal law enforcement agency's request, DOC officials will place an "ICE detainer" on the inmate. After the inmate completes his/her state sanction, prison officials will transfer custody of the inmate to ICE.

Using DOC Inmate Population Profiles and ICE detainer numbers, the following table reveals the total number inmates, the number of domestic and criminal alien inmates along with the percentage of them with ICE detainers incarcerated on June 1st in the state's prisons.

Beyond the DOC criminal alien incarceration numbers and incarceration percentages, per county and per crime type, or even country of origin, criminal aliens pose high economic cost on Oregonians.

An individual prisoner incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($94.55) per day.

The DOC's incarceration cost for its 954 criminal alien prison population is approximately ($90,200.70) per day, ($631,404.90) per week, and ($32,923,255.50) per year.

Even taking into account fiscal year 2015 U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) award of $1,602,510.00, if the State of Oregon receives the same amount of SCAAP funding for fiscal year 2016, the cost to incarcerate 954 criminal aliens to the DOC will be at least ($31,320,745.50).

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 954 criminal aliens includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.

Murder suspect indicted as details of his past emerge

Second charge of attempted aggravated murder added regarding June 27 shooting

Bonifacio Oseguera-Gonzalez has now been charged with a second count of attempted aggravated murder in addition to three aggravated murder charges for a fatal shooting last month east of Woodburn.

On July 8, a grand jury indicted Oseguera-Gonzalez on the attempted aggravated murder charge for “intentionally attempting to cause the death” of witness Jesus Zavaleta-Bahena. This is in addition to three counts of aggravated murder and another count of attempted aggravated murder with a firearm.

According to a probable cause statement, Oseguera-Gonzalez admitted to having shot four people on the morning of June 27 at a berry farm on Killiam Road.

Two of the victims — Ruben Rigoberto-Reyes, 60, and Edmundo Amaro-Bajonero, 26 — were found dead at the scene and another —Katie Gildersleeve, 30 — died hours later at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland. Refugio Modesto-DeLaCruz, 27, suffered serious injuries but is expected to survive, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials are still investigating and have declined to comment on a motive.

An additional case against Oseguera-Gonzalez has resurfaced from an incident in Marion County from 2009, for which there has been an active warrant for his arrest. In that case, he was charged with knowingly giving a false name to a police officer and unlawfully operating a motor vehicle without insurance.

After his arraignment June 28, the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency released a statement stating Oseguera-Gonzalez had been deported six times between 2003 and 2013

One of those times he was deported was following his 2009 arrest, according to an email from Virginia Kice, western regional communications director for ICE.

She also noted that Oseguera-Gonzalez voluntarily returned to Mexico in 2003, but was then arrested by ICE officials in October 2007 and deported two months later.

In November 2009, following his Marion County arrest, Oseguera-Gonzalez was taken into ICE custody and deported two weeks after that. The fourth and fifth times he was taken into custody and repatriated was in 2010, with both arrests being made in southern Arizona. In 2013, he was arrested again in southern Arizona.

“At that time, CBP-Border Patrol presented him for federal prosecution and he pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of illegal entry,” Kice said in the email. “After fulfilling his court imposed 180-day sentence, which included credit for time served, ERO (enforcement and removal operations) removed Mr. Oseguera to Mexico through El Paso.”

A status check in the murder case is scheduled before Judge Susan Tripp at 1:15 p.m. July 14.
