Report: ‘Dreamer’-age Illegals Have Crime Rate Double Young Americans

January 17, 2018

DACA-aged illegals commit crimes at twice the rate of young Americans, says a comprehensive summary of crimes and convictions in Arizona during the past 32 years.

The report punctures claims by pro-amnesty advocates that young ‘dreamer’ illegals are vital to U.S. industry and civic life, and indicate that any amnesty will ensure that many more crimes — including murders and rapes — will be inflicted against Americans and legal immigrants, including Hispanics and blacks.

The report says:

Unfortunately, if the goal of DACA is to give citizenship to a particularly law-abiding group of undocumented immigrants, it is accomplishing the opposite of what was intended. As Table 8 shows, DACA age eligible undocumented immigrants are 250% more likely to be convicted of crimes than their share of the population. Those too old for DACA status are convicted at a relatively low rates (45.7% more than their share of the Arizona population).

The summary of the report, titled “Undocumented Immigrants, U.S. Citizens, and Convicted Criminals in Arizona,”  says:   

Using newly released detailed data on all prisoners who entered the Arizona state prison from January 1985 through June 2017, we are able to separate non-U.S. citizens by whether they are illegal or legal residents. These data do not rely on self-reporting by criminals. Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes and serve 10.5% longer sentences, more likely to be classified as dangerous, and 45% more likely to be gang members than U.S. citizens …

If undocumented immigrants committed crime nationally as they do in Arizona, in 2016 they would have been responsible for over 1,000 more murders, 5,200 rapes, 8,900 robberies, 25,300 aggravated assaults, and 26,900 burglaries.

The report was prepared by John R. Lott Jr. at the Crime Prevention Research Center, in Alexandria, Va. He told Breitbart News:

The data there shows the convictions for everybody who entered the prisons system from January 1985 through June of this last year … It just shows that certain groups are convicted at much higher rates than their share of the population …  [roughly 75 percent] of the crime committed by undocumented immigrants or illegal aliens is committed by those who are 15 to 35 years of age.

Legal immigrants are very different from illegal immigrants, he said.

Illegal immigrants are being convicted at very high rates compared to their share of the population. Legal immigrants appear to be fairly law-abiding, and are convicted at low rates compared to their share of the population.

The database used for the report does not describe the race or ethnic identity of the victim, but national data shows that most victims are part of the same group as their criminals, he said. Lott added:

What tends to happen across all the different racial groups is that criminals are of the similar race as the victim … the crime literature [shows] that victims tend to be similar to the perpetrators of the crimes … Obviously, a larger share of the victims will also be undocumented illegal aliens.

Unsurprisingly, polls show that many legal immigrants want stronger border security. In 2014, for example, a pro-amnesty poll funded by Mark Zuckerberg showed that 78 percent of Hispanic respondents support “substantially increasing security among US-Mexican border.”

Asked to rebut likely criticisms of the crime report, Lott said he had seen few criticisms so far. “I don’t know what people will say — it seems like a straightforward set of numbers,” he said.

However, he noted that the report does not include any data about unreported crimes. “That raises the possibility that a lot of crimes are not reported … looking at convictions might provide you with an underestimate of the crime these illegals have committed.”

Lott’s report sheds more light on the 3.25 million ‘dreamers’ who would be the beneficiaries of an amnesty now being pushed by Democratic politicians, business-first GOP legislators, and cheap-labor business groups.

Pro-amnesty groups frequently portray the young illegals as a gain for the American society. Illegal migrants “embody the best of our nation,” Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives, said in December.

But that pitch is contradicted by Lott’s crime data, by the self-reported earnings of the migrants, their very poor education [less than 2 percent have college degrees) and by the very beneficial economic impact for Americans of excluding illegal immigrants.

In Arizona, for example, labor and immigration reforms began in 2004, and the state’s population of roughly 450,000 illegals gradually dropped by roughly 180,000 people from 2007 to 2012. Because of the 40 percent drop in illegal labor, the wages earned by Americans rose significantly, said a subsequent study by Moody’s Analytics. According to the Wall Street Journal report on the study:

The median income of low-skilled whites who did manage to get jobs rose about 6% during that period, the economists estimate … wages rose about 15% for Arizona farmworkers and about 10% for construction between 2010 and 2014 … Some employers say their need for workers has increased since then, leading them to boost wages more rapidly and crimping their ability to expand … graduates [at a federal job-training center] now often mull two or three jobs offers from construction firms and occasionally start at $14.65 an hour instead of $10 …  At DTR Landscape Development LLC, the firm’s president, Dick Roberts, says he has increased his starting wage by 60% to $14.50 an hour because he is having trouble finding reliable workers.

The departure of foreign migrants also cut the state government’s welfare costs by roughly $430 million per year, the WSJ reported.

The number of students enrolled in intensive English courses in Arizona public schools fell from 150,000 in 2008 to 70,000 in 2012 and has remained constant since. Schooling 80,000 fewer students would save the state roughly $350 million a year, by one measure … annual emergency-room spending on noncitizens fell 37% to $106 million, from $167 million. And between 2010 and 2014, the annual cost to state prisons of incarcerating noncitizens convicted of felonies fell 11% to $180 million, from $202 million.

Housing costs also dropped, making it much easier for better-paid young Americans to marry, have children and launch themselves into a middle-class life.

“It was like, ‘Where did everybody go?’ ” says Teresa Acuna, a Phoenix real-estate agent who works in Latino neighborhoods. Real-estate agent Patti Gorski says her sales records show that prices of homes owned by Spanish-speaking customers fell by 63% between 2007 and 2010, compared with a 44% drop for English-speaking customers, a difference she attributes partly to financial pressure on owners who had been renting homes to immigrants who departed.

The rising wages and loss of cheap labor also forced local companies to invent or buy new machinery that will boost productivity and allow farms to beat their low-wage, labor-intensive, foreign competition.

After Arizona passed a series of tough anti-immigration laws, Rob Knorr couldn’t find enough Mexican field hands to pick his jalapeño peppers. He sharply reduced his acreage and invested $2 million developing a machine to remove pepper stems. His goal was to cut the number of laborers he needed by 90% and to hire higher-paid U.S. machinists instead …

He says mechanization is his future. He continues to pour time and money into a laser-guided device to remove stems from peppers, which pickers now do by hand in the field. Another farmer in the area developed a mechanical carrot harvester.

Mr. Knorr says he is willing to pay $20 an hour to operators of harvesters and other machines, compared with about $13 an hour for field hands. He says he can hire skilled machinists at community colleges, so he can rely less on migrant labor.

Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting 1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.

Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted to investors and away from employees.

WOW! LEGAL Immigration Costs $758 Million NET Per/Year per Congressional District & CCN’s SOLUTION

January 17, 2018

Carrying Capacity Network
ACTION ALERT!
Please send the following Letter
to Your Congressional Representatives

Dear Congressperson,

How would you like to tell your constituents that there was an extra $758,000,000 each year to spend in their district? How could you help direct the spending of $758,000,000 ($758 MILLION!) in your district each year?

According to a study by noted Economist, John Williams, which can be viewed at Carrying Capacity Network [1] which sponsored the Study, U.S. Taxpayers pay out a NET $330 BILLION ANNUALLY (believe it or not) on LEGAL Immigration. That is, LEGAL Immigration costs U.S. tax-payers $330 BILLION AFTER SUBTRACTING ALL TAXES IMMIGRANTS PAY. [And this $330 Billion does NOT include the additional NET amount of Taxes State and Local Taxpayers pay to finance this LEGAL Immigration.]

Indeed, the Federal Deficit Faces a $3.3 Trillion Additional NET Hit in Next Decade, Without a Reduction in the 1.5 Million Annual LEGAL Immigrant Inflow.

Further, the study shows that LEGAL immigrants have displaced more than 5.9 million native-born workers since the onset of the Great Recession. That is an average of 13,600 workers or voters per congressional district in the last 10 years, plus their families*.

This Annual Tax-Payer Expense Of $330 Billion divided by the 435 Congressional Districts equals, on average, $758 million that could eventually be spent within each of these districts annually**. How many of your constituents do you believe know (or would even believe) that this situation has evolved over recent decades? You may not have been in office when this began, but you are there now.

—WHAT CAN BE DONE: Reduce the 1.5 million plus LEGAL immigrant flow into the U.S. (for all immigrants including refugees) to the same number of U.S. citizens who migrate out of the U.S. annually—appx.150,000—by imposing an all-categories-included CAP. And issue these LEGAL immigrants conditional green cards with the conditions of English Language Proficiency, no Felonies or Misdemeanors, and no applications for entitlements for 10 years. They must demonstrate their desire and ability to become good U.S. citizens.
Now for the really tough question. How are you going to explain to your constituents what you are going to do about this Costly Mass LEGAL Immigration?Answer: Tell them you are going to sponsor an all-categories-included Zero-Net Moratorium Bill.

Couldn’t these U.S. Taxpayer dollars be better spent? How much is The Wall going to cost? How much is the infrastructure program supposed to cost? And what about the Oppressive National Debt?

To:  Immigration Reduction Supporters: please send this letter to your Representatives and your friends, and follow up with phone calls including phone calls to your Representatives via the Congressional Switchboard:202-224-3121 or 800-828-0498.

And, FOR LETTERS/CALLS TO U.S. SENATORS—Multiply the number of Congressional Districts in your State by $758 MILLION so you can tell your Senators how much LEGAL Immigration is costing Federal Taxpayers in your State.

And…Please help CCN Distribute and publicize this Study far and wide by making a secure Credit Card tax deductible Donation NOW at our website, Carrying Capacity Network[1], or by sending a check to:

NOW. Congress is working on legislation NOW.
_________*The protection of jobs held by your constituents would begin substantially from Day One of a Moratorium Implementation.

**The massive savings will not occur all at once because of the “Cost Legacy” U.S. Taxpayers have ALREADY unknowingly been committed to resulting from LEGAL Immigrants already in the U.S.

National-anthem statue trashed in Baltimore

January 17, 2018

WorldNetDaily

1/16/2018

Source …..

Even statues of children are no longer safe from anti-American vandals.

A bronze statue depicting two children honoring the national anthem in Patterson Park in Baltimore was defaced Monday with red paint. The words “Racist Anthem” were painted in front of it.

The plaque on the statue read: “To commemorate the centennial of the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner, the pupils of the public schools of Baltimore have erected this memorial upon Hampstead Hill where in September, 1814, the citizen soldiers of Maryland stood ready to sacrifice their lives in defense of their homes and their country.”

It was paid for by pennies from public school students more than a century ago. A nearby cannon was also defaced.

Baltimore and its public schools has changed a great deal in the century since.

Despite massive funding, the city’s public schools are turning out students that do not even qualify as literate. A recent investigation of six Baltimore schools found not a single student passed the state’s proficiency test in the subjects of math and English.

The changing face of Baltimore is also reflected in its recent campaign to tear down statues that the city government believes reflects “racism” or “white supremacy.”

In August, the Lee-Jackson Monument, dedicated to former Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, the brother-in-law of Francis Scott Key, was torn down along with the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Mount Royal Avenue and the Confederate Women’s Monument. Mayor Catherine Pugh claimed her decision was motivated by “concern … for the safety and security of our people.”

Tearing down the statues, however, apparently has done nothing to improve “safety and security” in Baltimore. Last year, the city posted its highest ever per-capita homicide rate. There were 343 homicides in 2017, a per capita rate of 56 killings per 100,000 people.

The city today actually has fewer people than it did a century ago.

Nor has tearing down the statues dedicated to Confederate heroes done anything to stem the tide of vandalism directed against historical monuments in the city. Indeed, they have intensified.

A monument to Francis Scott Key, who wrote the poem that inspired the national anthem, was vandalized in September. And a 200-year-old monument to Christopher Columbus was smashed by a vandal with a sledgehammer in August, while a companion held a sign that said “Racism, Tear It Down.”

Pugh condemned the latest act of vandalism, pledging that those who did it would be held accountable and the statue cleaned. She was especially angry the attack took place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

But other comments were more subdued, seemingly recognizing the legitimacy of the protesters’ point while disapproving of their tactics.

“We feel like there are ways to have this conversation and maybe defacing city property isn’t the most productive way to do it,” said Jennifer Robinson, executive director for the group Friends of Patterson Park.

There has been a recent push by “civil rights” groups such as the NAACP and liberal journalists to call the Star-Spangled Banner racist and undermine its use.

The California NAACP has already designated the anthem racist. Bill Press has called for abolishing the national anthem before football games. And Harvey Wasserman argued for abolishing even the very concept of a national anthem.

 

Dick Durbin ‘Focused Full Time’ on Illegal Aliens as Black Americans Remain Excessively Unemployed in His State

While Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) says he is “focused” and working “full time” for illegal aliens, black Americans in his state of Illinois remain excessively unemployed, far above the national average.

On Monday, as Breitbart News reported, Durbin admitted that he is working around the clock, not for his underrepresented constituents in Illinois, but rather illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by a President Obama-created amnesty program.

“I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America,” Durbin said. “I am focused on that full time.”

Meanwhile, black Americans in Durbin’s home state are disproportionately unemployed, despite the unemployment rate for black Americans nationwide hitting an all-time record low under President Trump.

Across the country, 6.8 percent of black Americans are unemployed — the lowest level ever since the figure started being recorded in 1972. In Durbin’s Illinois, however, about 10 percent of black Americans are unemployed.

Days before Durbin made the statement that he is working “full time” in Congress for illegal aliens, the Chicago Tribune editorial board decried how black Americans, specifically young, black men, in Illinois remain extensively more impacted by unemployment than any other group in the state.

The Chicago Tribune editors wrote:

In Chicago, the job situation in hollowed-out West and South side neighborhoods is dire. Manufacturers left long ago. There are few retail and restaurant jobs. All the economic activity is located miles away in the Loop and elsewhere in metropolitan Chicago. Too many young people have inadequate job training and … nothing to do. According to the Great Cities Institute at the University of Illinois at Chicago, more than 40 percent of 20-to-24-year-old black males in Chicago are out of work and out of school. Does a booming national economy ever touch Chicago’s most impoverished neighborhoods? Can young people be drawn out of urban isolation?

Kris Kobach: Border Surge of Potentially 1M Illegal Aliens ‘Guaranteed’ Following DACA Amnesty

January 16, 2018

A surge of illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border that could reach up to one million border-crossings is “guaranteed” following a possible amnesty for nearly 800,000 illegal aliens, says Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach.

In an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday, hosted by Breitbart News Political Editor Matt Boyle and Deputy Political Editor Amanda House, Kobach warned President Trump against negotiating a deal wherein illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are given amnesty, saying such a plan would trigger a massive border surge.

KOBACH: And there will be a surge, it is guarenteed. If there is a DACA amnesty, there will be a massive surge of hundreds of thousands, if not more than a million, new illegal aliens.

HOUSE: Right, we saw that in the ’80’s and the ’90’s, as well, following the 1986 amnesty.

KOBACH: That’s exactly right. And as some Breitbart readers may know, if they’ve seen my piece this week, I put some statistics in there. Yeah, that ’86 amnesty, it ended up being for 2.7 million people which was a larger number than was expected by Congress and by President Reagan’s administration when it happened. And the reason its a larger number is its estimated that about 700,000 people came in or applied for the amnesty who were not eligible for it. And so… what happens when you grant amnesty is immediately people flood across the border because they want to falsely claim that they were already here and get the new amnesty or they want to at least get here and wait for the next amnesty.

An amnesty for DACA illegal aliens has the potential to trigger a border surge that could triple the current level of border-crossings, which under President Trump, have ticked back up to Obama-era levels due to border wall construction being stalled in the prototype stage for months.

As the Migration Policy Institute has chronicled, previous border surges from amnesty programs have brought hundreds of thousands across the U.S.-Mexico border:

While the flow of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) has been climbing steadily since 2012, a dramatic surge has taken place in the last six months, with the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas as the principal place of entry. The Border Patrol there has converted entire stations to house unaccompanied minors and families.

According to the Border Patrol, apprehensions of unaccompanied children increased from 16,067 in fiscal year (FY) 2011 to 24,481 in FY 2012 and 38,833 in FY 2013. During the first eight months of FY 2014, 47,017 such children were apprehended by the Border Patrol. If the influx continues apace—and it shows no signs of slowing—the administration predicts that by the end of the fiscal year on September 30, totals could reach 90,000.

Ninety-eight percent of unaccompanied minors currently arriving at the border are from Honduras (28 percent), Mexico (25 percent), Guatemala (24 percent), and El Salvador (21 percent). This breakdown represents a significant shift: prior to 2012, more than 75 percent of UACs were from Mexico.

In recent days, Trump has said that negotiations for a DACA amnesty — that would include cutting legal immigration levels to benefit America’s workers and immediately constructing the border wall — are “probably dead” due to Democrats’ unwillingness to cut legal immigration and bar employers from hiring illegal aliens over U.S. citizens.

The new word of the week accurately describes California

January 16, 2018

Despite so-called “progressives” promising their policies will create a Soviet-style worker’s paradise, California’s leftist Democrats have turned the once Golden State into a sh*thole through decades of leftist policies penalizing and demonizing employers, businesses, property owners, innovators, entrepreneurs—and really, anyone who wants to work hard and get ahead. These hard working people are responding by fleeing liberal California for conservative red states.

The perception across America is that California is the state people are leaving. And that perception is accurate.

More than 1,000 people each day are leaving leftist sh*thole blue states and moving to red states. “This migration is changing the economic center of gravity in America—moving it relentlessly to the South and West,” according to economist Stephen Moore. “California is one of the oil- and gas-richest states in the nation,” which should mean a mass inbound migration, “but its ‘green’ politicians are regulating that industry out of businesses. So much for caring about working-class Americans,” Moore says.

Even the Tech industry isn’t a growth business in California any longer. Cities With Fastest Growth In STEM Jobs Are Far From Silicon Valley, according to demographer Joel Kotkin. “In some recent months in parts of the Bay Area, The San Jose Mercury reports, the tech job count has actually declined. One limiting factor could be high housing costs. A recent report from the state Legislative Analyst’s Office showed that many CEOs, particularly in Silicon Valley, regard severe housing unaffordability—where you need to earn more than $200,000 annually to buy a median-priced house—as their biggest business challenge.”

And why is that? millennials, the fuel for tech firms, also may not be as urban-centric as some have predicted. Their numbers have recently dropped or plateaued in the much-celebrated core cities of Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York after rising earlier in the decade. In contrast, many Sun Belt areas—Nashville, Charlotte, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, Orlando—enjoy stronger net population growthin those between 25 and 34 than coastal California and the Northeast. California’s problem is not just people leaving, but talented young people not coming here who, years ago during our better days, streamed in.

My own millennial son, a Naval officer, recently transferred bases from San Diego to Virginia, and said he wished he’d made the move a few years ago. While not exactly a super low-tax state (but ranked 31 in the Tax Foundation’s 2018 State Business Tax Climate Index, Virginia is much better off than CA’s 48th ranking), cost of living, open carry laws, and general non-California people and attitudes contributed greatly to his opinion. He spent his first 18 months out of the Naval Academy in northern Florida, and appreciated the low-tax, business friendly state so much, he’s maintained his residency there.

California’s Economic Forecast is Dismal

According to the 10th Edition of Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index for 2017, California ranks 47th in economic outlook. Why?

  • Top Marginal Personal Income Tax Rate rank = 50
  • Top Marginal Corporate Income Tax Rate = 40
  • Personal Income Tax Progressivity = 50
  • Sales Tax Burden = 33
  • State Liability System Survey = 47
  • State Minimum Wage = 48
  • Absolute Domestic Migration = 49
  • Average Workers’ Compensation Costs = 50
  • Right-to-Work State? (No) = 50

The ALEC report was for 2017. Since the report was published in April, California’s lawmakers and governor have been hard at work further destroying the economic outlook for the state.

Most recently, the state Public Utilities Commission’s decided to close Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, marking the end of more than a half-century of nuclear power generation in the state. This will only serve to dramatically increase our energy costs, which are already the highest in the nation. Data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed California households paying 17.97 cents per kilowatt hour for electricity, or 40.9 percent more than the national average of 12.75 cents, CNBC reported.

Governor Jerry Brown wants to ban the sale of gas and diesel powered cars in California. There are 26 million drivers in California. More than 2 million new vehicles were registered in California last year, the most of any state, and only 5% of California’s new vehicle sales in the first quarter of 2017 were electric vehicles, Forbes reported. In total, only about 300,000 cars in California are “clean vehicles,” and only .4% are electric vehicles. I also beg to differ on California’s definition of “clean vehicles”—my Eco-diesel Jeep is extremely clean, but doesn’t count as a “clean vehicle.”

“To achieve Brown’s goals, he will have to compel 99.6 percent of California drivers to trade in their gas guzzlers for electric vehicles that they currently find too expensive or too impractical,” Christian Britschgi wrote at Reason’s Hit & Run blog. “And that doesn’t even touch on the issue of providing enough charging stations for these vehicles, or of generating enough electricity to power those stations.”

Britschgi points out that electric vehicles are mostly owned by California’s wealthy. “A 2016 Berkeley study found that 83 percent of those making use of California’s electric vehicle subsidy program made over $100,000.”

California isn’t Norway, which is the world leader on using electric cars. And that is because it’s freezing cold and frozen in Norway, which relies almost entirely on hydroelectric power. Um, with our Mediterranean-like climate, warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters, California isn’t Norway. And the leftists in California hate hydroelectric power anyway.

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Slams Federal Judge’s ‘Offensive’ Comments, Declares DACA Unconstitutional

January 16, 2018

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday criticized a federal judge’s order reinstating DACA as offensive for suggesting that ending DACA is racist. She went on to declare DACA unconstitutional, and unapologetically asserted that her oath of office is to follow the U.S. Constitution.

Nielsen appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, discussing various issues the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is dealing with. A large part of the interview concerned the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which is an amnesty program for 800,000 illegal aliens announced by President Barack Obama and developed by former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

DACA was the predecessor of DAPA, a larger amnesty program based on the same legal argument which covered four million illegal aliens. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit held that DAPA was illegal, and once President Donald Trump was inaugurated and Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed, the federal government dropped the remaining legal appeals and let the larger program lapse.

Supporters of DACA filed suit to keep the smaller program going, asserting that the Trump administration violated the law by ending the program, presenting legal arguments that have never before been adopted by a federal court.

Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California—a well-known liberal judge appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton—agreed with those novel arguments.

In his preliminary injunction ordering DHS to resume DACA immediately, Alsup wrote that he found “a plausible inference that racial animus towards Mexicans and Latinos was a motivating factor in the decision to end DACA.”

Secretary Nielsen did not appreciate the implication that federal officials at DHS are racist.

“With respect to the quote, I find that offensive on its face,” Nielsen said. “I took an oath when I became secretary of homeland security to defend and support the Constitution.”

“The program was unconstitutional,” she declared, consistent with the Fifth Circuit’s decision that the similarly named DAPA amnesty was illegal.

Only Congress can change immigration law. Yet DAPA and DACA did so through executive fiat. Contrary to the claims of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra during that same broadcast, neither program ever went through the legal process required by the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). That was one reason the federal appeals court struck down DAPA.

Immigration security is a longtime focus for Nielsen, who took over DHS with more background in securing the homeland than any of her predecessors. She has been working in D.C. since graduating from Georgetown and later the elite law school at the University of Virginia.

Under President George W. Bush, Nielsen served on the White House Homeland Security Council. She also established the Office of Legislative Policy and Government Affairs at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is a component of DHS.

She went to the private sector during the Obama administration, but continued working on security issues. She worked at George Washington University on the Resilience Task Force at the university’s Center for Cyber & Homeland Security, as well as at the World Economic Forum on its Global Risks Report Advisory Board.

Nielsen worked on President Donald Trump’s presidential transition team. She then served as chief of staff at DHS, then as principal deputy White House chief of staff, until she was confirmed in December 2017 as the sixth Secretary of Homeland Security.

 

Jon Voight, Alveda King making pro-life Roe v Wade film

The Left are going to lose their minds over this one: a film project is in the works to tell the story of Roe v. Wade, depicting the landmark abortion case from a pro-life perspective.

(Article by Alex Parker republished from TruthRevolt.org)

The endeavor is being funded in part via Indiegogo, the webpage of which  that the full-length feature Roe v Wade: The Untold Story will tell the tale of “most corrupt court case in history.”

Could it get any worse for the Left?

Yes — it could, and it does: Academy Award-winning actor and outspoken Trump supporter Jon Voight is signed on. As if that weren’t bad enough, executive producer for the project is Alveda King. That would be “King,” as in bulletproof Democratic icon “Martin Luther.” Alveda is MLK’s niece.

The pro-abortion Left won’t appreciate the film’s premise.  to LifeNews:

This is the untold story of how [abortion activists] lied and manipulated Jane Roe, the media, and the courts into the decision to allow abortion in 1973.

Uranium One Indictment Unsealed By DOJ

January 15, 2018

On Friday, the Justice Department unsealed an 11-count indictment concerning the Uranium One scandal.  Sadly, it did not include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but rather former DoD intelligence analyst-turned uranium transportation executive Mark Lambert of Mount Airy, Maryland.

Lambert, 54, was charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.  The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.

According to the DOJ:

According to the indictment, beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at “Transportation Corporation A” to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX.   In order to effectuate and conceal the corrupt and fraudulent bribe payments, Lambert and others allegedly caused fake invoices to be prepared, purportedly from TENEX to Transportation Corporation A, that described services that were never provided, and then Lambert and others caused Transportation Corporation A to wire the corrupt payments for those purported services to shell companies in Latvia, Cyprus and Switzerland.  Lambert and others also allegedly used code words like “lucky figures,” “LF,” “lucky numbers,” and “cake” to describe the payments in emails to the Russian official at his personal email account.  The indictment also alleges that Lambert and others caused Transportation Corporation A to overbill TENEX by building the cost of the corrupt payments into their invoices, and TENEX thus overpaid for Transportation Corporation A’s services.

In June 2015, Lambert’s former co-president, Daren Condrey, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the FCPA and commit wire fraud, and Vadim Mikerin pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit money laundering involving violations of the FCPA.  Mikerin is currently serving a sentence of 48 months in prison and Condrey is awaiting sentencing.  The indictment includes allegations against Lambert based on his role in effectuating the criminal scheme with Condrey, Mikerin, and others.

Back in October 2017, The Hill reported that the FBI had uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved the controversial nuclear deal with Moscow.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.”

Zero Hedge adds:

Based on what the FBI knew – including evidence which purportedly includes a video of Russians preparing briefcases of bribe money – the Uranium One deal never should have gone through. Moreover, both Robert Mueller and current deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein were directly involved – and current Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other Justice Department officials appear to be covering for them.

In short, the FBI had ample evidence of the Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved the Uranium One deal thanks to their embedded mole in the Russian nuclear industry. 

The informant – outed as energy consultant William Campbell – was “threatened” by Obama admin AG Loretta Lynch to keep quiet with an iron-clad gag order, according to his attorney – former Reagan Justice Dept. official and former Chief Counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee Victoria Toensing. After Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-VA) demanded Campbell be allowed to testify in front of Congress, the gag order was lifted.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions originally tried to claim that there was no connection between Uranium One and the nuclear transport bribery case, however several congressional republicans pushed back:

Attorney General Sessions seemed to say that the bribery, racketeering and money laundering offenses involving Tenex’s Vadim Mikerin occurred after the approval of the Uranium One deal by the Obama administration. But we know that the FBI’s confidential informant was actively compiling incriminating evidence as far back as 2009,” Rep. Ron DeSantis, (R-Fla.) told The Hill.

“It is hard to fathom how such a transaction could have been approved without the existence of the underlying corruption being disclosed. I hope AG Sessions gets briefed about the CI and gives the Uranium One case the scrutiny it deserves,” added DeSantis, whose House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittees is one of the investigating panels.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) sent a similar rebuke last week to Rosenstein, saying the deputy attorney general’s first response to the committee “largely missed the point” of the congressional investigations.

“The essential question is whether the Obama Justice Department provided notice of the criminal activity of certain officials before the CFIUS approval of the Uranium One deal and other government decisions that enabled the Russians to trade nuclear materials in the U.S,” Grassley scolded.”

Meanwhile, journalists John Solomon and journalist Sara Carter claim to have copies of the FBI informant’s evidence, while Carter issued an explosive report in late November laying out the players, the timeline, and the evidence at hand.

“By the time the sale of Uranium One was approved by the Obama Administration, the FBI’s investigators had already gathered substantial evidence and the bureau was also aware of Russia’s intentions to enter the U.S. energy market and its desire to purchase a stake in American uranium,” Carter writes.

Highlights: 

  • FBI mole William Campbell was a highly valued FBI asset – paid $51,000 by FBI officials at a celebration dinner in Chrystal City, VA, where Campbell’s attorney says they thanked him for his service.
  • Campbell was required by the Russians, under threat, to launder large sums of money – which allowed the FBI to uncover a massive Russian “nuclear money laundering apparatus
  • Campbell collected over 5,000 documents and briefs over a six year period
  • Campbell uncovered a Russian plot to penetrate the Obama administration and gain approval for the Uranium One sale, including a 2010 email which describes “Russia’s intent on expanding its Uranium expansion in the United States.”

This is not just about bribery and kickbacks but about a U.S. company that was transporting yellow-cake for the Russians with our approval,” an unnamed U.S. Intelligence official told Carter, adding “This should raise serious questions. At the time everyone was concerned about Russia’s ties to Iran, we still are. And of course, Russia’s intentions and reach into the U.S. energy market.”

Former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who chaired the House Intelligence Committee during the time the FBI probe was being conducted, told The Hill, “Not providing information on a corruption scheme before the Russian uranium deal was approved by U.S. regulators and engage appropriate congressional committees has served to undermine U.S. national security interests by the very people charged with protecting them.  The Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise is breathtaking.”

Not so fast.  This was not the “Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise.”  It was Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah and Hillary Clinton, traitors to America, who facilitated this and signed off on it.  When will we see those indictments?
