House Judiciary Committee Unveils Four Bills To Strengthen Interior Enforcement Of U.S. Immigration Laws (Videos)

Strengthening The Interior Enforcement Of Our Nation’s Immigration Laws – House Judiciary Committee

.

.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Congressman Lamar Smith, Congressman Jason Chaffetz, and Congressman John Carter have unveiled four pieces of legislation to strengthen the interior enforcement of our immigration laws, remove the ability of the President to unilaterally shut down immigration enforcement, ensure jobs are preserved for legal workers, reform the United States’ asylum laws, and make sure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous trek to the United States are safely returned home.

THE “LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT”

Science, Space, and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the former chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the Legal Workforce Act to ensure jobs are preserved for Americans and legal workers. This bill requires all U.S. employers to use E-Verify, a web-based system that checks the Social Security numbers of newly hired employees against Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security records to help ensure that they are genuinely eligible to work in the U.S.

THE “PROTECTION OF CHILDREN ACT OF 2015″

Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee John Carter (R-Texas) is the author of the Protection of Children Act to ensure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous journey to the United States are safely returned home. For those who stay with a sponsor in the United States while awaiting their immigration hearing, the bill provides for greater transparency and safety of these minors to ensure they are not inadvertently delivered into the hands of criminals or abusers.

THE “ASYLUM REFORM AND BORDER PROTECTION ACT OF 2015″

Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, is author of the Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act. This bill closes loopholes in current law that encourage illegal immigration, such as weak standards for asylum claims that enable the Obama Administration’s rubberstamping of fraudulent applications and policies, and effectively ends “catch and release.”

THE “MICHAEL DAVIS, JR. IN HONOR OF STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ACT”

The Michael Davis, Jr. in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act is authored by Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). This legislation ensures that the President of the United States can’t shut down immigration enforcement unilaterally by granting states and localities specific congressional authorization to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration law. It also strengthens national security and protects American communities by improving visa security, facilitating the removal of dangerous criminal aliens, and barring terrorists from entering and remaining in the United States.

Oh goody, another “look at me” open carry douche nozzle

Here is the story, but understand that this idiot cares far more about “LOOK AT ME!” than anything else

A flurry of 911 calls were placed earlier today and a Madison Heights high school full of nervous students was placed on lockdown today after a man when on a stroll through the snow just off campus with a rifle slung across his back and a pistol on his hip.

Lamphere High School in Madison Heights was placed on lockdown after a man was seen carrying a rifle near the school.

Only 7 Action News has obtained video of the man walking down 13 Mile Road and in front of Lamphere High School in Madison Heights with that rifle strapped on his back.

Police say the man identified himself as an Open Carry advocate who was exercising his rights. In Michigan it is legal to carry either a handgun in a holster or a long gun that is not pointed in a threatening way in public.

Madison Heights Police made sure the man did not intend to enter the school and let him continue walking. They did not ask his name or destination.

Law enforcement officers were diverted, and school was disrupted, because this “gentleman” insisted on open carrying past a high school, seemingly with the express intent of getting a rise out of authorities and making a public spectacle out of himself.

Most gun owners support the theory of open carry, and most have the basic sense to understand that it should not be used in such a manner that it can be taken as a threat against the public, or against private individuals.

I am sure to get a comment or three telling me that “this is his right”. And, I agree. But, it is also my right to comment on such idiocy, and about tools who are all about themselves. 

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day Never bring a crowbar to a gun fight

Yet another story that David Brooks thinks never happens

A married couple tried to break into a Baton Rouge home Tuesday morning — until a homeowner shot and killed the husband, authorities say. 

The husband, who had a violent criminal history, was armed with a crowbar, authorities added.

The incident began about 10 a.m. Tuesday, when 31-year-old Jermoid Wheeler began using a crowbar to break down the back door of a home in the 600 block of Summer Breeze Drive, said Casey Rayborn Hicks, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

The sound of Wheeler beating at the door woke up the homeowner — who grabbed a firearm and proceeded down the hall, where he could see someone was trying to break in, Hicks said.

The homeowner told deputies he then ordered Wheeler several times to stop, but Wheeler ignored him, broke the door open and walked toward him with the crowbar, Hicks said.

The homeowner fired a single shot, killing Wheeler at the scene, Hicks said.

One more for the good guys

Well, I think that the complete and utter incompetence of Team Obama is pretty celar to all now

Shot: John Kerry Snubs Netanyahu To Meet With Iran’s FM Zarif – Chaser: Zarif Then Calls For “Annihilation” Of Netanytahu Regime…

Via Times of Israel:

Iran’s Foreign Minister  acknowledged that his country seeks the annihilation of the “Netanyahu regime” but denied that it seeks to wipe out Israel.

In an NBC interview on Wednesday, Zarif finessed a series of questions raised by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his speech to Congress Tuesday, including over Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei’s tweet last year urging the annihilation of Israel, and about his own laying of a wreath at the grave of Imad Mughniyeh, the arch-Hezbollah terrorist responsible for the killings of hundreds of Americans.

Zarif said Netanyahu had been fanning “hysteria” since 1992 with the claim that Iran was two years from the bomb. “Once this fear mongering is out, then we can have a deal,” he said. Zarif also denied stalling the IAEA’s efforts to probe alleged nuclear weapons work. He spent much of the extensive interview castigating Israel for a series of alleged vicious crimes, while insisting on Iran’s tolerant and peaceful nature.

Sure, Iran is peaceful, and tolerant, which is why they hang Homosexuals, brutalize women and want to annihilate Israel’s “regime”. 

New Emails Could Send Leftist Congressman Cummings To Prison For Targeting Conservative Group ‘True The Vote’

New Emails Could Send Democrat Elijah Cummings To Prison For Targeting Voter Rights Group – Gateway Pundit

.

.
Last April House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) released a report implicating Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) in colluding with the IRS and Lois Lerner against the nonpartisan voters rights group “True the Vote.”

Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of “True the Vote,” testified before Congress in February. She was targeted by FBI, IRS, ATF, and OSHA after she filed for tax exempt status for her voters rights group.

Engelbrecht said this during her testimony before Congress and Cummings: “Frankly, to sit before my accuser and be silent in the face of what he did was unconscionable.”

.

.
This week the House Oversight Committee released more emails that prove the IRS was feeding Rep. Cummings with confidential tax information on the voter fraud prevention group True the Vote.

Townhall reported:

New IRS emails released by the House Oversight Committee show staff working for Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings communicated with the IRS multiple times between 2012 and 2013 about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote. True the Vote was targeted by the IRS after applying for tax exempt status more than two years ago. Further, information shows the IRS and Cummings’ staff asked for nearly identical information from True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht about her organization, indicating coordination and improper sharing of confidential taxpayer information.

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, along with five Subcommittee Chairmen are demanding Cummings provide an explanation for the staff inquiries to the IRS about True the Vote and for his denial that his staff ever contacted the IRS about the group.

“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” the letter to Cummings states. “As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS.”

Previously –

A report published last April 2014 confirmed that Lois Lerner funneled information on Conservative group True the Vote to Democrat Cummings.

New IRS E-mails: Lois Lerner Funneled Elijah Cummings Info On Targeted Conservative GroupRanking Democrat previously denied his staff contacted the IRS about group True the Vote

WASHINGTON – Newly delivered internal IRS e-mails sent and received by former IRS Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner and other IRS employees show that House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Minority staff, working for Ranking Member Elijah Cummings, began contacting the IRS in August 2012 about targeted non-profit applicant True the Vote. The IRS produced this e-mail on April 2, 2014 – only days after Oversight Committee Members had taken new IRS Commissioner John Koskinen to task for withholding relevant e-mails. The Chairman and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the Oversight Committee today sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing:

“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” wrote the Chairman and five Subcommittee Chairmen of the Oversight Committee. “As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS.”

The letter notes:

* The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep. Cummings’ staff.

* Five days after Cummings contacted True the Vote seeking “copies of all training materials used for volunteers, affiliates, or other entities,” the IRS sent True the Vote a letter requesting True the Vote provide “a copy of [True the Vote’s] volunteer registration form,” “…the process you use to assign volunteers,” “how you keep your volunteers in teams,” and “how your volunteers are deployed… following the training they receive by you.”

* On or before January 25, 2013, Cummings’ staff requested more information from the IRS about True the Vote. The head of the IRS Legislative Affairs office e-mailed several IRS officials, including former Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner, that “House Oversight Committee Minority staff” sought information about True the Vote. On Monday, January 28, Lerner wrote to her deputy Holly Paz: “Did we find anything?” When Paz informed her minutes later that she had not heard back about True the Vote’s information, Lerner replied: “thanks – check tomorrow please.”

* On January 31, 2013, Paz attached True the Vote’s form 990s, which she authorized the IRS to share with the Minority staff. Neither Cummings nor the IRS shared these requested documents with the Oversight Majority. None of the Minority’s communications about True the Vote with the IRS were shared with the Committee Majority even though Ranking Member Cummings frequently complains about the Committee Majority contacting individuals on official matters without the involvement of Minority staff.

Cummings denied that his staff, “might have been involved in putting True the Vote on the radar screen of some of these Federal agencies” at a February 6, 2014, Subcommittee hearing:

Here is the exchange:

Ms. Mitchell: We want to get to the bottom of how these coincidences happened, and we’re going to try to figure out whether any – if there was any staff of this committee that might have been involved in putting True the Vote on the radar screen of some of these Federal agencies. We don’t know that, but we – we’re going to do everything we can do to try to get to the bottom of how did this all happen.

Mr. Cummings. Will the gentleman yield?

Mr. Meadows. Yes.

Mr. Cummings. I want to thank the gentleman for his courtesy. What she just said is absolutely incorrect and not true.

Georgia man uses common sense, survives armed home invasion

Remember this advice, if you do not know who is knocking, don’t open the door

When the woman began knocking on the door of a Fulton County, Georgia, home incessantly yesterday morning, the homeowner refused to answer it. Likely fearing that something was about to happen, he armed himself. When the female burglar’s male partners then kicked in the homeowner’s front door, he was ready and waiting.

The fight was on:

An attempted home burglary resulted in a shootout at a south Fulton County home that left a suspected burglar critically wounded Tuesday.

A homeowner on Diann Drive said burglars kicked in his front door after he declined to answer their incessant knocking around 11:45 a.m., Detective Melissa Parker told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The homeowner and the suspected burglars then exchanged what sounded like 40 shots to neighbors. The homeowner thought he wounded one suspect and police found a man “shot multiple times” in woods near the home, Parker said.

The man was in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital on Tuesday and detectives have not been able to interview him, Parker said. Police are looking for additional suspects, Parker said.
