Leftist Congressman Wants To Send DHS To Central America To Process Illegals For U.S. Entry (Video)

Say What? Democrat Rep. Wants DHS In Central America To Process Immigrants For U.S. Entry – Top Right News

.

.
According to one Democrat Congressman from, of all places, Texas – America doesn’t have a border security problem, despite the bum rush of hundreds of thousands of illegals from Central America this year.

Nope. The way to solve this influx is to hand them asylum in their home countries, before they even cross our border.

Um, what?

Yep, you heard right. Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) visited CNN’s “State of the Nation” and uttered his little bit of crazy for a national audience.

Watch:

.

.
O’Rourke actually wants us to send Homeland Security into Central America to start processing people as “refugees”, thereby allowing tens of thousands if not more, to come to the U.S.

You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out of office. A little hint to the citizens of Texas’ 16th District.

American Patriots In Murrieta, CA Turn Back DHS Buses Carrying Illegal Aliens (Video)

Protestors Block Buses Carrying Immigrants To Processing Facility – BuzzFeed

.

.
Several buses transporting undocumented immigrants to a Border Patrol station In Murrieta, Calif., Tuesday were turned back after angry protestors blocked the road to their intended destination.

Photographs posted on social media by local reporters show dozens of protestors surrounded the buses heading to a new processing facility set up by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Murrieta station to deal with an influx of migrants from Central America.

The protestors were carrying American flags and signs with messages such as “Return to sender” and “Bus illegal children to the White House.” Others called on Border Patrol to protect the border instead of look over detained migrants.

.

.
The federal government previously set up temporary processing facilities in Nogales, Ariz., to supplement overwhelmed facilities in South Texas.

Plans to transport 500 undocumented immigrants to the Murrieta facility were pared down after residents expressed discontent and Mayor Alan Long complained that the federal government’s plan would put a strain on the city’s resources.

Upon arrival the buses carrying 140 undocumented migrants Tuesday turned around for unknown reasons and drove to the Chula Vista Border Patrol facility in San Diego County, a local news station reported.

Obama’s DHS Instructs Border Agents To Run Away From Illegals Who Attack Them With Rocks

DHS Tells American Border Guards To Run Away From Illegal Immigrants Hurling Rocks At Them, Fleeing In Vehicles – Daily Caller

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.

.

.
“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.

Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.

Agents can’t use guns against “a moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” say the instructions.

The new instructions do allow agents to use guns to defend themselves from vehicles that drive at them. “Agents shall not discharge their firearms at a moving vehicle unless the agent has a reasonable belief that… deadly force is being used against an agent,” the new instructions say.

However, the instructions also suggest that officers be penalized if they don’t step back. Agents “should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicles’s path,” according to new instructions.

The new curbs were praised by advocates for greater immigration, including Juanita Molina, director of the Border Action Network. New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, and Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Menendez is one of the drafters of the June 2013 Senate immigration bill, which would boost the inflow of legal immigrants and guest workers up to 40 million over the next decade. During the same period, roughly 40 million Americans will turn 18.

The new rules were issued at the direction of Jeh Johnston, the new head of the Department of Homeland Security.

The rules match the recommendation of a report by an advocacy group that wants to reduce policing of illegal immigration.

The report by the Police Executive Research Forum was commissioned by DHS, and it said border agents should be barred from standing in front of smugglers’ vehicles or from shooting at people who are attacking them with rocks.

The commissioned report was challenged by mid-level DHS officials, who argued that the rules barring self-defense from rock-throwers “could create a more dangerous environment [especially for agents operating] in rural or desolate areas, often alone, where concealment, cover and egress is not an option,” according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

But Johnston overrode the internal response, and forced the implementation of the advocacy groups’ recommendations.

The PERF report was commissioned by top DHS leaders after advocates said law-enforcement agents had killed roughly seven people a year along the 1,933-mile border in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The shootings came during 67 clashes with a huge stream of armed drug-smugglers and illegal immigrants.

Three U.S. border guards have been killed in recent years, including one who was shot during a clash with drug smugglers carrying AK-47 assault weapons.

In a Friday news conference, Fisher told reporters that agents would be equipped with short-range tasers and pepper spray, plus medium-range pellet guns, to deter attacks.

But he also admitted that agents have been attacked 6,000 times since 2007. They’ve been “assaulted by rocks” 1,713 times since 2010, and have responded with deadly force only 43 times, he said.

The agents killed only 10 drug-smugglers and other attackers during the same three-year period, Fisher said.

DHS Secretary Johnson: Illegal Aliens Have ‘Earned The Right To Be Citizens’ (Video)

Homeland Security Secretary: Illegals Have ‘Earned Right To Be Citizens’ – CNS

Speaking at the United States Conference of Mayors on Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the approximately 11 million people who are in the country illegally have “earned the right to be citizens.”

.

.
“An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows,” said Johnson, in what he remarked was one of his first public speeches since being confirmed as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief in December.

“It is also, frankly, in my judgment, a matter of who we are as Americans,” he said, “to offer the opportunity to those who want to be citizens, who’ve earned the right to be citizens, who are present in this country – many of whom came here as children – to have the opportunity that we all have to try to become American citizens.”

.

.
Johnson, who had earlier served as general counsel for the Department of Defense under Obama from 2009 to 2012, told the more than 270 mayors in attendance that enforcing immigration law was one of the main missions of DHS.

“The five core missions of the Department of Homeland Security are guarding against terrorism, securing our borders, enforcing our nation’s immigration laws, safeguarding cyberspace and critical infrastructure in partnership with the private sector, and supporting emergency preparedness and response efforts at every level,” Johnson said.

Then he concluded his remarks by calling for “comprehensive, common sense, immigration reform.”

“Common sense immigration reform is supported by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, businesses, and if the polls (are) to be believed, the majority of the American people,” Johnson said. “Border security is inseparable from homeland security.”

“And border security must and should be part of comprehensive immigration reform – protecting our borders, securing our ports, promoting the lawful flow of trade and travel through our ports to cities and other communities,” he said.

Johnson touted the alleged improvement in border security over the last four years and said comprehensive immigration reform also would increase that security.

“Comprehensive immigration reform would also promote a more effective and efficient system for enforcing our immigration laws, and should include an earned path to citizenship for the approximately 11-and-a-half-million undocumented immigrants present in this country, something like 86% of whom have been here almost 10 years,” Johnson said.

“An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows, to be accountable, to participate in the American experience, the American society,” he said.

“It is also, frankly, in my judgment, a matter of who we are as Americans,” said Johnson. “To offer the opportunity to those who want to be citizens, who’ve earned the right to be citizens, who are present in this country – many of whom who came here as children – to have the opportunity that we all have to try to become American citizens.”

Backdoor Amnesty: Deportation Cases Closed By ‘Prosecutorial Discretion’ Up Almost 70% – Big Government

More immigrants facing deportation in immigration courts across the nation are having their court cases closed because of Obama’s prosecutorial discretion policy, researchers at Syracuse University found.

Meanwhile, the number of removal proceedings initiated in immigration courts by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has dropped since the new policy was implemented.

In fiscal 2013, immigration courts cited the exercise of “prosecutorial discretion” (PD) as the reason to dismiss 16,306 cases.

That is a 68 percent increase from the 9,684 cases that were tossed in 2012 for the same reason.

In total, from October 2011 when Obama’s discretion policy was implemented through December 2013, there were 28,983 PD-related closures in immigration courts across the U.S.

The number of deportations proceedings initiated in immigration courts by ICE has also dropped since Obama’s discretion policy was implemented.

In fiscal 2013, ICE initiated 190,277 removal proceedings in immigration courts, a 21 percent drop from the 239,504 in fiscal 2011, the year prior to the beginning of prosecutorial discretion.

Overall, the number of ICE removals has also dropped ten percent in 2013.

ICE deportations went from a record high of 409,849 in fiscal 2012 to 368,644 last year.

As a percentage of all cases closed, the number of prosecutorial discretion closures in court is also on the rise.

In fiscal 2013, 8.5 percent of all case closures were based on prosecutorial discretion, up from 4.7 percent the previous year.

Some immigration courts reported that prosecutorial discretion resulted in almost three out of every ten cases closed.

“The Seattle Court led the nation with 29.8 percent PD closures. The Tucson court was in second place with 26.0 percent PD closures, while the Los Angeles Court was third with 23.7 percent. Rounding out the top five were the Omaha Court at 23.1 percent and the Phoenix Court at 20.7 percent,” according to the Syracuse University analysis.

Houston saw one of the lowest percentages of case closures based on Obama’s policy.

Syracuse University researchers found that “Houston was at 1.7 percent PD closures, New York City 3.7 percent, Chicago 5.0 percent, and Miami 6.3 percent.”

The prosecutorial discretion closures mentioned in this report only refer to those cases that actually make it to court. Some immigration cases are dealt with administratively by the Obama administration.

John Morton, then-Obama’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement director, first announced the prosecutorial discretion policy in an October 2011 memo.

The new policy directed immigration enforcement officials to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” in deciding which illegal aliens to remove from the U.S.

According to the memo, the purpose of the policy was to remove the worst criminal offenders while allowing other aliens such as those who were brought into the country as children to remain in the country.

One purpose of the policy is to reduce a backlog of cases in immigration courts, according to the White House.

However, Syracuse University found that the policy is also being used to deal with new immigration court cases.

The White House has extended the use of prosecutorial discretion to immigration law violators who are military veterans and the spouses of active-duty military personnel.

Federal Judge: Obama’s DHS Delivering Young Illegals Caught At Border To Illegal Alien Parents

Judge: DHS Delivering Young Illegals Caught At Border To Illegal Immigrant Parents – Daily Caller

A case out of Texas has a federal judge asking just which side of the law the Department of Homeland Security is working for.

.

.
United States District Judge for the Southern District of Texas Brownsville Division Andrew S. Hanen rebuked DHS for helping to deliver an illegal immigrant minor – detained at the border with her human smuggler – to her illegal immigrant mother living in Virginia.

Homeland Security “successfully complet[ed] the mission of the criminal conspiracy” to smuggle the child across the border to her parent, the judge wrote in an order issued on Dec. 13.

The mother, Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, had agreed to pay $8,500 to have human smugglers bring her child from El Salvador to Virginia.

The smuggler, Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez, was arrested and the child detained at a Texas border checkpoint when they were caught trying to use a birth certificate that belonged to Nava-Martinez’s daughter.

Nava-Martinez, a resident alien, also had a prior felony for food-stamp fraud in 2011.

“Despite this setback, the goal of the conspiracy was completed thanks to the actions of the United States Government,” Hanen wrote. “This Court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security (hereinafter ‘DHS’) of completing the criminal mission of individuals who are violating the border security of the United States.”

“Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the Defendant at the border inspection point. She was arrested, and the child was taken into custody. The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron Santos instigated this illegal conduct,” the judge continued. “Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivered the child to her – thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. The DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.”

This was “the fourth case with the same factual situation this court has had in as many weeks,” Hanen wrote.

In each of those cases, Hanen explained, illegal immigrant minors – whose illegal immigrant parent or parents were paying human smugglers to bring them into the United States – detained prior to arriving at their destination were delivered to their illegal immigrant parents by DHS.

The judge noted that in all four cases, the American taxpayer ended up on the hook for the final delivery.

“In all cases when the Government apprehended some of the traffickers, the Government transported the children across the country to unite them with a parent (or parents) who was in the country illegally. In one situation, the Government flew a child to multiple locations in different parts of the United States. The taxpayers of the United States suffer the expense of delivering these minors,” Hanen wrote.

“This is an absurd and illogical result. The DHS could reunite the parent and child by apprehending the parent who has committed not one, by at least two different crimes,” he continued.

The judge added that “the failure by DHS to enforce current United States law” is concerning because illegal activities of this kind help fund drug cartels. It also undermines the deterrent effect of the nation’s immigration laws and lowers the moral of the men and women risk their lives to enforce the law, he wrote.

The order comes as Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and the union representing ICE officers and staff have been sounding the alarm about lack of immigration enforcement at DHS, with the Alabama lawmaker recently issuing a “Timeline of Administrative Non-Enforcement of Federal Immigration Law.”

DHS did not immediately respond to request for comment.

“We Are Going To Have To Kill A Lot Of Whites”: DHS Employee Who Buys Guns For ICE Runs Racist Website

“We Are Going To Have To Kill A Lot Of Whites”… DHS Employee Preparing For A Race War; Also Buys Guns For ICE – Right Scoop

So does the Obama administration not do background checks anymore? Or is this the kind of person they hire? Either way, the answer is bad for America:

.

BREITBART NEWS – Ayo Kimathi, a Department of Homeland Security employee tasked with buying guns and ammo for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, runs a racist, homophobic website called “War is on the Horizon.” He calls himself the “Irritated Genie.” The site required approval from DHS, but Kimathi did not. His former supervisor told the Southern Poverty Law Center that she was “stunned” by the site. “To see the hate, to know that he is a federal employee, it bothered me,” she said. DHS signed off on the site based on Kimathi’s description, but apparently did not bother to check the site.

.
..

Kimathi’s site calls President Obama a “treasonous mulatto scum dweller,” and an enemy of the black supremacist movement, along with Oprah, Whoopi Goldberg, and Condoleezza Rice. The site says, “warfare is eminent, and in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our christian hearts can possibly count.” Kimathi also says that whites are attempting to “homosexualize” black men to somehow make them weaker, and therefore easier pickings for racism. He also offers helpful hints on how “Black women in the world [can] understand what she needs to do to keep a strong Black man happy.”

DHS Flags Tweets About ‘Militia,’ But Not ‘Jihad’

DHS Flags Tweets About ‘Militia,’ But Not ‘Jihad’ – WorldNetDaily

You can thank the Electronic Privacy Information Center for forcing the Department of Homeland Security to release its list of “keywords” that are used to by its agents to monitor you on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.

The list, including phrases, reveals which words you probably want to avoid or else risk being flagged and eyeballed as a possible terrorist or someone who is otherwise posing threats to the United States. Words included such innocuous terms as: “Militia,” “exercise,” “cops,” “national security” and “facility.” Interestingly and of note, “jihad” was not included, nor were the words “Middle East,” “Arab,” “Muslim,” “terrorist” or “pressure cooker.” Perhaps those are on a different DHS red flag list?

The Electronic Privacy Information Center sued to obtain the list, but not before it had filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the documents contained within DHS’ 2011 ‘Analyst’s Desktop Binder,’ which, according to a Forbes report, is “used by workers at their National Operations Center, which instructs workers to identify ‘media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities.’”

.

Meanwhile, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in Silicon Valley to meet with Google, eBay and Facebook representatives last week, made his views known on civil liberties, technology and privacy, telling them, “Due process is not someone who’s an elected politician deciding whether [Americans] should die or not.”

Ironically, Al Qaeda’s newest war tactic now includes social media. Call it “digital jihad,” but again, I’m not finding that phrase on the DHS list. Why is that?

As Pamela Geller wrote at her blogsite Atlas Shrugs, “Well, you can’t say we haven’t been warned.”

Quoting from an article that appeared in the May 30 edition of MEMRI, Geller posted that for the first time, the jihadi magazine Inspire was disseminated on Twitter rather than Al-Qaeda affiliated jihadi forums. The English language magazine is produced by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

From MEMRI: “The first downloadable link was posted on a Twitter account belonging to “Muhammad Al-Shammary,” who said he had received an email with English and Arabic copies of the magazine. Al-Shammary, who uses the handle @muhammad115599 and about whom very little is known, then posted the password needed to unlock the link.”

“Most of the articles in this issue focus on the Boston Marathon bombing,” MEMRI continued. “Inspire’s publishers clearly believe that they deserve credit for providing the perpetrators with the motivation and operational know-how for the attack. More importantly, AQAP uses the current issue to incite Muslims in the West to carry out similar attacks, by emulating the Tsarnaev brothers and the Woolwich attackers. Thus, one prominent feature in the issue is a message from AQAP’s military commander, Qassem Al-Rimi, who warns the American people that such attacks will continue and that their government is unable to stop them.”

But the forums continue to flourish. The Atlantic magazine reports that almost a decade in, “Al-Qaeda’s password-protected online forums continue to remain popular. Government officials in the U.S and elsewhere have spoken out against the message boards, which are used by jihadis to converse and distribute information, saying they serve as a recruiting tool for terrorists and have been used to incite violence against the West. But some U.S. intelligence officials have argued against their removal, saying they rely on them for intelligence gathering.”

DHS Admits It Does Not Track Immigrants Who Become Welfare Dependent, Pursued Zero Cases Last Year

DHS Admits It Does Not Track Immigrants Who Become Welfare Dependent, Pursued Zero Cases Last Year – Daily Caller

In a response letter to four top Republican lawmakers, the Department of Homeland Security revealed it initiated only one case against an immigrant for becoming a “public charge,” or being primarily dependent upon the government, in fiscal year 2012. The case was later withdrawn.

While the department’s response to Republican Sens. Jeff Sessions, Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch and Pat Roberts’ August oversight request offered an overview of the centuries-old federal public-charge restrictions, it noticeably avoided several of the senators’ direct questions and demonstrated potentially significant inadequacies in record-keeping by immigration officials, who legally should be enforcing public-charge rules for immigrants both inside and outside of the country.

The response, for example, failed to explain why immigrants are only assessed for their potential reliance on just two of the more than 80 federal means-tested welfare programs when the government determines if they are “public charges” prior to their entry into the U.S. – meaning that they are likely to become primarily dependent on federal aid for subsistence after arriving.

The DHS letter, penned by Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs Nelson Peacock, further failed to respond to the four Republican senators’ data requests pertaining to the the total number of visa applicants from 2001-2011 that were denied on public-charge grounds, or numbers on those who were granted visas despite a public-charge finding.

DHS also did not reveal how many immigrants from 2001-2011 became public charges after obtaining a visa or entering the country.

The department did, however, admit it does not have the data on immigrants who become public charges after gaining entry or a visa – despite, as Peacock writes in his letter, the fact that aliens “may also be found deportable on public charge grounds in accordance [immigration law], but only if they became public charges within the first five years after entry for causes that have not been affirmatively shown to have arisen since entry.”

Peacock explained that “historical data responsive for the number of aliens issued visas or otherwise admitted into the United States from 2001 to 2011 who became public charges and who were later issued Notices to Appear is unavailable,” because of “data entry quality and system changes that did not account for statistical tracking at this level.”

A case-by-case review of fiscal year 2012 data shows that only a single case that was brought up because an immigrant allegedly became a public charge after gaining a visa or entry to the country. Peacock noted, however, that the charge was later withdrawn.

Deportations of immigrants for being public charges after their arrival in the U.S. are relatively rare, according to the Federal Register, due to additional exemptions for certain classes of immigrants and legal burdens on the government. It is typically easier for the government to deny entry to immigrants on public-charge grounds prior to their entry into the country.

“You’d be hard pressed to find a single American who believes a whole year went by without a single alien violating the public-charge law,” one Republican aide said in reaction to Peacock’s admission. “This revelation from DHS is beyond disturbing. It is inexcusable. Surely this must give pause to fiscal conservatives considering the cost to American taxpayers of various comprehensive immigration reform proposals being discussed.”

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is currently addressing these data tracking issues and intends to capture such data in a reliable manner in the future,” Peacock said.

dditionally Peacock provided data pertaining to the number of applicants from 2005 to Aug. 9, 2012 who were denied entry on public-charge grounds through the Visa Waiver Program: 9,796 applicants, or .0084 percent of approved VWP applicants in that seven-year period.

Last fall, TheDC reported that just .068 percent of the 10.37 million immigration applicants the State Department processed were found to be ineligible on public-charge grounds.

A Center for Immigration Studies analysis of Census Bureau data last August revealed that in 2010, 36 percent of immigrant-headed households were on at least one major welfare program, compared to 23 percent of native-headed households.

DHS Says: Confront Mass Killers With Scissors

DHS Says: Confront Mass Killers With Scissors – Sweetness & Light

From the New York Post:

Homeland Security has advice for confronting mass murders: scissors

By S.A. MILLER | January 31, 2013

WASHINGTON – Is your workplace getting shot up by a crazed gunman? No problem — just grab a pair of scissors and fight back!

That’s some of the helpful advice in a new instructional video from the Department of Homeland Security that was posted on the agency’s Web site just a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

“If you are caught out in the open and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available,” says the narrator in the video, which shows an office worker pulling scissors out of a desk drawer.

The video, titled “Options for Consideration,” also advises that people who get caught in an “active shooter” situation should run away, hide under a desk or take cover out of the line of fire.

Thank goodness we have highly paid professionally trained bureaucrats available to give us great advice like that. This is right up their with the DHS’ advice about stretching before shoveling snow, and remembering to take off cold wet clothes.

The nearly four-minute-long video opens with chilling scenes from the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, and the 2011 attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords.

But the video quickly shifts to hokey footage of office workers scampering under desks, crouching in corners and racing into closets to hide from a rampaging gunman on the loose.

“To protect your hiding place, lock the door if you can. Block the door with heavy furniture,” recommends the male narrator, speaking in measured, authoritative tones.

Other survival strategies promoted in the video include hiding “behind large items such as cabinets or desks. Remain quiet. Silence your cellphone or pager. Even the vibration setting can give away a hiding position.”

They might also recommend taking down any ‘gun free zone’ signs.

Richard Feldman, president of the Independent Firearm Owners Association, said he has a better option for consideration than a pair of scissors when confronting an armed mass murderer – a legal firearm.

“That’s why I prefer a gun, and I usually do carry a gun when it is lawful to do so,” said Feldman. “Clearly, you use whatever you can” to fight for your life, he said…

What kind of crazy talk is that? We hold Mr. Feldman’s doctor contacts the authorities so that he can be put away.

The video is part of the Obama administration’s ongoing campaign to reduce firearm violence in the wake of the horrific mass murder last month of 20 children and six teachers in Newtown, Conn., said a Homeland Security official…

The video was released to coincide with President Obama’s sweeping proposals to curb gun violence in America, said the official…

The only trouble is, all the scissors in that Sandy Hook school would have been ‘safety scissors.’

Besides, once people starting hurting each other with scissors, they will have to be banned as well.

DHS Delayed Arrest Of Democrat Senator’s Illegal Alien Sex Offender Intern Until After Election

Arrested Menendez Intern Reportedly An Illegal Immigrant, Sex Offender – Washington Free Beacon

An unpaid intern of Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.) was an illegal immigrant and registered sex offender, and was arrested by immigration authorities Dec. 6, the Associated Press reported.

The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents to not arrest Luis Abraham Sanchez Zavaleta, 18, until after Election Day, according to a U.S. official involved in the case:

Zaveleta was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in front of his home in New Jersey, two federal officials said. Sanchez, who entered the country on a now-expired visitor visa from Peru, is facing deportation and remains in custody. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of Sanchez’s immigration case. [...]

Menendez, who advocates aggressively for pro-immigration policies, was re-elected in November with 58 percent of the vote. Congressional staffers who work for Menendez were notified about Sanchez’s case shortly after the arrest. Sanchez told ICE agents that he worked on immigration issues for the senator. A spokesman for Menendez said she was looking into the matter. [...]

The prosecutor’s office in Hudson County, N.J., said Sanchez was found to have violated the law in 2010 and subsequently required to register as a sex offender. The exact charge was unclear because Sanchez was prosecuted as a juvenile and those court records are not publicly accessible. The prosecutor’s office confirmed to AP that Sanchez registered as a sex offender, although his name does not appear on the public registry.

Menendez said he did not know about the arrest until just before his interview on MSNBC Wednesday afternoon, but his staff became aware of it on Monday.

“We certainly wouldn’t have known through any background checks since he is a minor about any sex offender status,” Menendez said. “Once it came to our attention, our New Jersey staff director let the young man go from the program… We have a whole bunch of college interns. There’s no way we can know about any allegation as a juvenile. That’s the story.”

Last month, New Jersey Republicans asked the Senate Ethics Committee to launch an investigation into Menendez based on public records and media reports indicating the senator failed to disclose and seek permission for a series of flights between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic from 2010 to 2012.

DHS report: “significant variability in the ideologies motivating terrorist attacks across decades.”

Good Freaking Grief! why do we even have a DHS? Seriously, Janet Napolitano is in incompetent buffoon who could not find her ass with both hands!

A new Homeland Security report compares terrorism to “ordinary crime” in metropolitan U.S. cities and omits the radical Islamic factor, instead finding “significant variability in the ideologies motivating terrorist attacks across decades.”

This appears to be part of the Obama Administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes hiring a special Homeland Security adviser (Mohamed Elibiary) who supports a radical Islamist theologian and renowned jihadist ideologue. The Obama Justice Department also created a special Muslim Engagement Advisory Group to foster greater communication, collaboration and a new level of respect between law enforcement and Muslim and Arab-American communities.

And, in 2010, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano held secret meetings with radical Arab, Muslim, Sikh and South Asian “community leaders.” Judicial Watch uncovered documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that includes a list of the individuals who participated, including radical leaders such as Hezbollah supporter Imad Hamad and extremist Salam Al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

Considering this cozy relationship, the new DHS terrorism report should come as no surprise. It compares terrorist attacks to “ordinary crime” in large, metropolitan areas which is why the nation’s terrorism “hot spots” are Manhattan, Los Angeles County, Miami-Dade County Florida, San Francisco County and Washington, D.C. As if to downplay the distinct difference between crashing a plane into a high-rise and a mugging, the DHS says “terrorism and ordinary crime occur in many of the same areas.”

It stresses that the “Ideological motivation” for terrorist attacks varies greatly. For instance, the brilliant DHS minds found that certain counties are prone to a particular type of terrorist attack, including extreme right-wing, ethno-nationalist/separatist and “religiously motivated,” though no specific religion is mentioned. The report does point out however, that “religiously motivated attacks occurred predominately in the 1980s.”

And we continue to pour tax dollars into the cesspool of stupidity! Talk about useful idiots!

DHS Accused Of Witness Tampering And Attempted Document Theft – Fox News

A key congressional committee on oversight is accusing the Department of Homeland Security of non-cooperation, witness tampering and even attempted theft of committee documents.

The 152-page report comes on the eve of hearings on transparency about DHS by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The accusations were met with a swift condemnation from a DHS spokesman, who accused Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., of reaching conclusions before the hearing got under way.

“While the Committee’s report spends a good deal of space making allegations of politicization and obstruction, the facts simply do not support these claims. Ironically, the report itself is full of selective omissions and redactions that appear to have been made to support these allegations,” said DHS spokesman Amy Kudwa.

Kudwa also noted that the findings reach an entirely different conclusion than DHS’s Inspector General did in a separate report.

The release coincided with Fox News obtaining an e-mail exchange written to and by political appointees at the agency.

The e-mails appear to suggest a resistance to releasing documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

In one e-mail, a career DHS FOIA specialist asks political appointees to search for documents pertaining to the BP oil spill “using a time frame of April 20th, 2010, to May 13, 2010.”

When one employee asks, “What is my search term on this?” a third political appointee responds, “I used oil spill from 4/20 -4/30, when the request was sent in.”

That response leaves unexamined a two-week period of e-mails that were sought in the original FOIA request.

Chairman Issa believes the e-mail exchange is but a small part of a larger pattern of intentional obfuscation by political appointees at DHS.

“We’ve found that there has been politicization of FOIA – that instead of documents flowing more quickly and with the bias being towards openness – there’s been a tendency to evaluate everything in a political light,” Issa said.

The chairman suggested there was a preoccupation in DHS with the political affiliations of those seeking FOIA requests. He said, “We haven’t seen that since the Nixon Administration.”

In addition, in other newly released e-mails, one career employee at the Department of Homeland Security used words such as “crazy and meddling” to describe the scrutiny of FOIA requests by political appointees. Another e-mail indicates there was “constant stonewalling” by department lawyers to open records requests.

Still, none of these released e-mails yet indicate that political appointees at DHS were hiding some “smoking gun” or some bombshell of malfeasance.

The obfuscation appears to have been committed in the interest of political super-sensitivity, not in the interest of protecting great secrets. Whether that changes may be revealed in Issa’s hearings as they get under way Thursday morning.

In the midst of all the intense scrutiny, DHS officials maintain that the backlog of FOIA requests were largely left over from the Bush Administration. The say that under the Obama Administration, they have reduced the FOIA backlog by 84 percent and reduced the amount of time it takes to process FOIA requests from 240 days to 85 days.

Where has the civil liberties Left gone?

We all know how absolutely nutty the Left was about civil liberties being eroded, destroyed, wiped out, and shredded under President Bush. So, given their hyper-jealous streak where that is concerned, surely they will be up in arms over the DHS’s memo on “Right-Wing Extremists” right? Ah, not so much actually

The United States Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis issued a report last week suggesting that current political and economic conditions are energizing right-wing extremist groups, that many of these groups follow extremely conservative ideologies and that some may seek to recruit and “radicalize” veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

True, true and true.

But, conservatives reacted by throwing a knee-jerk hissy fit. They twisted the report’s meaning to imply that they, and more importantly our war heroes, were being vilified by a partisan document.

Their argument seeks to suppress and subjugate two rather unfortunate facts: while only a tiny number of conservatives and veterans are members of hate groups, nearly all hate groups do indeed follow far-right ideology. And they covet members with military experience.

 

Got that kids? Not only does this jealous defender of civil liberties not get upset over the asinine DHS report, he AGREES with it!

Just two questions here. If that report had been done on Left-Wing extremists, and done in , oh, say 2005, would this columnist still say Yes! Good on the DHS?

Second question, would this columnist EVER get caught saying that while not ALL Muslims are terrorists, almost ALL terrorists are, well, you know.

I think we all know the answer to both questions is NO!
