Mexico as a source of the second wave

An influx from highly-infected Mexico fuels the “Second Wave”

The Federation for American Immigration Reform has published a report pointing to an influx of human trafficking from COVID-19 infected countries.

Texas is said to be experiencing a second wave of coronavirus infections, and reporters are looking everywhere for clues to the cause – everywhere except south of the border.

COVID cases are rising again in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. Border communities in the Rio Grande Valley are also seeing increases. One health official called the trend line “absolutely apocalyptic.”

Media coverage zeroed in on the state’s gradual return to business as usual, speculating that re-opened hair salons and gyms are driving up caseloads. Certainly a resumption of public gatherings – with and without masks – has increased chances for spreading the virus.

Coronavirus cases in Mexico are soaring

But while politicians admonished citizens to mask up and complained of “stress on the healthcare system,” not a word was uttered about the ongoing influx of migrants from Mexico and Central America, where COVID cases are now soaring. The border represents an additional risk that should not be ignored, along with the inherent risks associated with reopening many businesses and people who fail to take proper precautions against contracting or spreading the virus.

Sharing 2,000 miles of border with Mexico, Texas is a prime destination. Even with the Trump administration’s ban on “non-essential” travel across the border, 2,766,122 legal crossings were tallied at three Texas ports of entry in March (the latest month for which data were available). Unknown numbers of illegal aliens continue to enter via other routes.

The White House is just now exploring the possibility that travel from Mexico may be contributing to the new wave of coronavirus infections. (Somewhat disingenuously, the liberal Migration Policy Institute tweaked the administration for imposing “mobility limitations not on grounds of health risk, but to protect jobs.”)

“My strong suspicion is that sick Mexican citizens (and maybe Central Americans and migrants of other nationalities) are illegally entering the United States to use American hospitals because their governments have failed them,” Todd Bensman, of the Center of Immigration Studies, wrote this month. Implicit in Bensman’s observation is that taxpayers in these border regions are left with the bills.

Bensman’s theory remains theoretical because neither the news media nor healthcare providers report COVID patients’ immigration status. The media’s failure to pursue relevant lines of inquiry merely raises more doubts.

“American voters and citizens can and should argue that human decency and Hippocratic oaths require that America care for illegally present non-citizens who need help,” Bensman states. “But American voters also should have a chance to counter that Mexico should be entirely responsible for the consequential fallout from its policy choices and that its government expand facilities for its own sick citizens.”

Thank God for 200 miles completed of southern border wall

With a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show for letting his listening audience know about this, I ran across this article the same morning that Chris mentioned it.

It only stands to reason that a once-porous border on our Southern side would present problems when COVID-19 has hit record levels south of the border.

Thank heavens that 200 miles of the border wall have been completed, making it that much more difficult to enter the U.S. through the Southern border illegally.

Mexico Continues to Break Daily Coronavirus Death Record

Breitbart reports that Mexico continues to break its daily coronavirus death record as of 4 June 2020.

coronavirus-mexico-1-day.Despite starting a gradual return to normal activities this week, Mexico recorded the most Coronavirus fatalities in one day. Mexico ranks seventh in the world for deaths and fourteenth for cases.

During their daily news conference, Undersecretary of Health Hugo Lopez Gatell and his staff revealed that Mexico currently has 101,238 confirmed cases and another 44,869 undergoing testing. The nation has recorded 11,729 fatalities tied to the virus.

The government figures show that Mexico recorded 1,092 fatalities in one day, the most to date. Mexico also recorded the most new daily cases with 3,912.

Mexico still ranks high globally despite admitting to undercounts. The nation has only conducted a total of 303,461 tests.

With this in mind, what is Lina Hidalgo doing to stop the spread from highly-infected Mexico?

Does Lina Hidalgo stop the gathering of day laborers at street corners? Does she require social distancing among those groups? The answers to these questions are: “No” and “no.”

However, does she mandate that all people in Harris county wear masks and, if they don’t, she will fine businesses where those maskless people shop? The answer is yes. Of course, Democrats want to kill business.

Lina Hidalgo did everything she could to release prisoners from the Harris county jail. Likewise, Kim Ogg has worked to release over 344 felons. Additionally, she released 800 protesters (including who knows how many of whom had broken windows at stores downtown). So, it seems that all of these Democrats have given George Soros his dollars worth by promoting his anti-America agenda.

Even the New York Times recognizes the threat of Mexico and the coronavirus

Coronavirus jumps the border, overwhelming hospitals in California

The New York Times reports on California hospitals being overwhelmed by Mexican patients coming over the border for treatment.

healthcare-worker-and-security-guard
Healthcare worker and security guard in triage area.

For 32 years, Judy Cruz has cared for patients who showed up in the emergency room in the arid, agrarian valley that straddles Mexico along the California border.

There have been bad flu seasons that caused hospitalizations to spike; weekends when off-road vehicle collisions in the desert resulted in traumatic injuries and scorching summer days when overheated farm workers required intensive resuscitation. Among the patients was always a smattering of Americans who lived across the border.

“We are a teeny tiny hospital but have always been able to manage, calling in staff on their days off or transferring one or two patients out a day to bigger facilities,” said Ms. Cruz, director of the emergency department of the El Centro Regional Medical Center. “We’d get a surge for 24 or 48 hours that required all hands on the deck.”

Then came the coronavirus.

The hospital, which has a 20-bed intensive-care unit, has been overwhelmed with ailing residents of the Imperial Valley, as well as Americans and U.S. green card holders fleeing overcrowded clinics and hospitals in Mexicali, a city of 1.1 million on the other side of the border.

To alleviate the pressure, hospitals in nearby San Diego and Riverside counties began accepting transfers in April. But the intensifying crisis prompted California last week to activate an extraordinary response, enlisting hospitals as far north as Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Sacramento to accept patients from this remote southeastern corner of the state.

Last week, a patient was being transferred from the hospital in El Centro every two to three hours, compared to 17 in an entire month before the Covid-19 pandemic, Ms. Cruz said on a recent morning as a helicopter prepared to airlift a patient and five ambulances dropped off patients near a trio of tents erected outside the hospital to triage new arrivals.

The swelling numbers of Covid-19 patients entering the United States from Mexico comes as many parts of California have pushed down their infection rates, enabling many counties to lift stay-at-home restrictions and reopen businesses.

“We worked hard to flatten the curve in California,” said Carmela Coyle, president of the California Hospital Association, who issued an appeal to hospital systems across the state for help. “Now we have a surge in the Imperial Valley because the situation is so severe in Mexicali.”

Other parts of the border, including San Diego County, also have been scrambling with a wave of patients from Baja California, the state adjacent to California. Border towns in Arizona are experiencing an increase in infections that health officials believe is tied to people coming in from Sonora state.

“Our E.R. is used to receiving patients from Mexico for things like complications from bariatric surgery and plastic surgery, and alternative cancer care, but this pandemic has brought a whole different dynamic,” said Juan Tovar, physician operations executive at Scripps Mercy Hospital in Chula Vista, across the border from Tijuana, which has been hard hit by the pandemic.

“We’re seeing Covid patients arrive at our E.R. who are very ill, whose disease has progressed to an advanced stage because care wasn’t readily available in Baja California,” he said.

The border influx is likely the reason that Chula Vista has more cases per capita than San Diego, a city five times larger.

Chris Van Gorder, the president of Scripps Health, a nonprofit health system in San Diego, reported that nearly half of virus patients who checked into the Chula Vista hospital between May 24 and May 30 had recently been in Mexico. That share rose to 60 percent between May 31 and June 2.

So will Lina Hidalgo blockade Mexico?

Will common sense reign and will Democrats work together with Republicans to stop a health crisis from migrating up from Mexico? My bet is that the Democrats do not care about the health of the nation to the degree that they care about socialism and their advocacy groups.

Answer this: how can Democrats lock U.S. citizens with “stay home, work safe” orders and promote illegal immigration?

Featured

Democrat leaders have a monopoly on the lockdown

Lina Hidalgo, Gretchen Whitmer, Tom Wolf, all Democrats, all extend “stay at home” orders

As posted previously on this blog, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo announced on 21 May 2020 that her “Stay Home, Work Safe” order would be extended until 10 June.

Similarly, Michigan Governor Whitmer has further extended the stay-home order, as well as restrictions that have shut down many Michigan bhusinesses to limit the spread of the coronavirus outbreak to 12 June 2020.

Likewise, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has extended stay-at-home orders in red counties despite mounting opposition.

These Democrat leaders have promoted policies that encourage illegal immigration

Judge Lina Hidalgo proposes and a narrow margin of Democrats approve a taxpayer-funded plan for “Deportation Defense”

Although violation of immigration law remains a civil (not criminal) offense, Judge Lina Hidalgo proposed and got passed a tax-payer-funded plan for defending illegal aliens, as reported by Houston Public Media.

Harris County commissioners voted Tuesday to approve a resolution to create an immigration legal services fund.

lina2The vote was 3-2, along party lines. The resolution, proposed by County Judge Lina Hidalgo, allocates an estimated $500,000 in its first year to help people facing deportation who can’t afford a lawyer. The funds would go toward helping improve due process in the federal immigration system, Hidalgo said.

“The goal is to provide attorneys for immigrants to be able to pursue their case. If it turns out their case has no merit, and they’re not to stay, that’s fine. But they should have a shot at a fair process and they can’t possibly navigate the system, complicated confusing system, without the legal support,” Hidalgo said.

Dallas, Austin and San Antonio have similar city-funded programs in place, but this would be the first county-funded effort in the state and the first program in Greater Houston.

A study by the Vera Institute of Justice found detained immigrants who have a lawyer are 10.5 times more likely to win their case than those without representation.

The report also found that when immigration cases involved women with children, having legal representation improved their odds of winning 14 times.

The county’s next steps are to run a request for proposals from nonprofits likely already working in immigration legal defense, according to the Harris County Judge’s office.

Harris County spends $21 million annually to fund its public defenders office. A large portion of that budget staffs 88 public defenders.

Harris County does not provide citizens paid representation when we get sued. Why do illegals get it?

Two things feed into Lina Hidalgo’s need to provide taxpayer-funded legal representation for illegal aliens:

  1. Her need to perpetuate the class struggle of the proletariat
  2. Her need to perpetuate racism (she calls “equity”)

One thing that baffles me is that Democrats cannot seem to see how supporting one side over another (even if done in the name of purported “social justice”) divides us. Rather than giving special advantages to one side over the other, we should promote equality and freedom (not this division and racism).

On the other hand, why do Americans (as opposed to Democrat socialists) vote for this? My answer is simple: we cannot.

Whitmer backs driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants

The Detroit Free Press points out how Gretchen Whitmer backs providing drivers licenses to illegal aliens.

WhitmerGov. Gretchen Whitmer appeared to support a change in state law to issue driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants, when she gave an impromptu interview to an immigrants rights organization during the Democratic presidential debates in Detroit.

“We need to ensure that everyone’s got a path to getting a license, so they’ve got identification,” Whitmer, a Democrat, said in a video released by the group Movimiento Cosecha after an organizer for the group asked her if she favored issuing driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants.

“That’s something that’s important to me, it’s important to our economy, and it’s important to the people of Michigan.”

Michigan passed legislation to ban the practice in 2008 after Attorney General Mike Cox, a Republican, issued a formal opinion in 2007 saying undocumented immigrants could not obtain driver’s licenses. Cox’s opinion reversed a 1995 opinion from former Attorney General Frank Kelley, a Democrat.

Tiffany Brown, a spokeswoman for Whitmer, would not answer directly Friday morning when asked whether Whitmer favors changing state law to allow undocumented immigrants to hold Michigan driver’s licenses. But she did not deny the accuracy of the video and transcript released by Movimiento Cosecha.

“Not sure I’ll have much more to add outside of what the governor said in the video about ensuring that undocumented immigrants have a path to getting an ID,” Brown said in an email.

She did not specify what that path would look like or whether she was talking about a state identification other than a driver’s license. In the video, Whitmer specifically referenced driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants.

Certainly Whitmer sees that a license gives an illegal alien an avenue to the legal

Certainly Whitmer understands that giving the illegal alien a drivers license also gives the illegal alien the possibility of various legal documents (including the ballot); therefore, for Whitmer to play with this idea is the equivalent of playing with a metaphysical gun. She cannot expect to pick this idea up and not draw attacks from those who stand for our freedom.

So, with this information (and with the knowledge that Whitmer has acted as a little dictator in the name of health while Sweden has fared better without a lockdown), freedom-loving people should vote her out.

Governor Tom Wolf seeks the removal of an ICE detention center in Pennsylvania

The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania CBS affiliate Local21News reports that Governor Wolf seeks the closure of the Berks ICE detention center.

WolfWhile target cities wait, advocacy groups continue working to shut down detention centers. Governor Wolf says he wants the Berks County center closed.

“I haven’t had a conversation on the most recent thing,” Wolf said, when asked about the detention center. “Since I’ve been in this position, since I first learned about the Berks County detention center, I’ve been against what they do, I think it’s wrong. It’s immoral, it’s inhumane and I don’t think we should be doing that in Pennsylvania. It gives us a bad name.”

Here again, Governor Wolf seems to live to produce oxymoronic situations

Weeks ago, Governor Wolf placed COVID-19 patients in nursing homes in the name of health. Now coronavirus reigns in Pennsylvania nursing homes.

Governor Wolf continues to strangle the economic health of numerous counties in the name of health, but where does he expect the funds for their physical and economic health to spring from?

Governor Wolf wants the average citizen to obey his mandates and probably threatens them with jail time and fines if they do not obey. But for the illegal alien who broke into the country and is competing with our citizens for the resources here, he wants to shut down the ICE center (and probably let them all go).

Oddly, Democrats wonder why people cannot take them seriously.

This is the result of Democrat policies

Illegal alien arrested in deadly-hit-and run as county looks to buck ICE

The Daily Caller reports on one illegal alien in Northern Virginia’s Prince William County (where county officials had decided not to work with ICE).

An illegal alien was arrested in a Northern Virginia suburb for his alleged involvement in a deadly hit-and-run accident and handed over to immigration officials, but local leaders are looking to scrap a program that allows law enforcement to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Officials in Prince William County, Virginia, have debated ending a years-long partnership program with federal immigration authorities, the 287(g) program. The introduction of new jail board appointees is expected to lead to the end of this partnership, according to proponents of the program.

As the debate was occurring this week, an illegal alien was arrested after he allegedly struck a man with his vehicle, killing him, and speeding off, according to ICE. Federal authorities and proponents of the program are pointing to the arrest of this man as a prime example of why the partnership needs to stay in place.

A 62-year-old northern Virginia man, attempting to cross a road in the early morning hours of May 6, was struck by two vehicles, with the injuries he sustained ultimately causing him to die, according to news outlet Inside NOVA. The second vehicle that struck him as he laid on the road sped away. The Prince William County Police Department identified and arrested 35-year-old Walner Alberto Pichinte Echeverria May 18, Inside NOVA reported.

Pichinte Echeverria, a Salvadoran national, was living unlawfully in the U.S. and was placed in ICE custody on May 21, a spokeswoman for the agency told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Walner Alberto Pichinte Echeverria, 35, an unlawfully present Salvadoran national, was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on May 21 by the Prince William County Police Department in Manassas, Virginia, after his arrest May 18 for felony hit and run,” ICE spokeswoman Kaitlyn Pote said in a statement provided to the DCNF.

“On May 19, a designated immigration officer with the 287(g) Program at the Prince William-Manassas Regional Adult Detention Center in Manassas, Virginia, trained to identify and process removable aliens with criminal charges, served Pichinte a warrant of arrest and an immigration detainer,” Pote continued. “He remains in ICE custody pending the outcome of his removal proceedings.”

The 287(g) program allows Prince William County to verify the immigration status of suspects who are arrested and charged with a crime. If the individual is discovered to be living in the U.S. unlawfully, they are subsequently handed over to ICE.

The Prince William-Manassas Regional Adult Detention Center has been a partner in the program since 2007, according to ICE.

The cooperation agreement also allows the agency to pay for most of the tab for immigration enforcement. Critics of the program have argued that local officers shouldn’t expend their own resources to assist federal authorities.

“The goal of 287(g) is to enhance public safety by identifying aliens, lodging immigration detainers, and initiating removal proceedings by issuing charging documents on criminal and removable aliens booked into the jail facility,” ICE said in a statement.

(continued)

The partnership has become controversial among progressive community leaders, particularly in response to the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Prince William County, much like the rest of northern Virginia, has shifted toward the Democratic Party, and the now-Democrat-controlled county board of supervisors may have set the stage to scrap it.

So, it sounds like there will be no justice for the victims of this hit-and-run

Oddly, Americans have worked for about 60 years to eliminate giving people preference on the basis of their skin color. No longer are there “Whites only” fountains, cafes, or bars. No longer are there “Negroes only” schools or entrances.

However, now Democrats have worked to establish a separate class for the illegal alien. Unlike citizens, illegal aliens seem to have an agreement with police where the illegals are not detained at auto accidents. They don’t find themselves asked about proof of insurance or title.

Four stories ignored due to my COVID-19 obsession


  1. Nineteen-year-old illegal alien was firing shots at HPD helicopters over crash scene

With a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, we find that Houston CBS affiliate KHOU cryptically informs us that the man who shot at the police helicopter was an illegal alien. Although the link’s headline said “Source: Teen was firing shots at HPD helicopters …” and the article’s headline says “19-year-old accused of firing gun at choppers …”, the article said:

A 19-year-old man has been arrested and charged with firing a gun at helicopters responding to a deadly HPD chopper crash on May 2.

Josue Daniel Claros-TrajedoJosue Daniel Claros-Trajedo shot five rounds into the air shortly before the crash but it’s not clear if he was aiming at the HPD helicopter.

When Claros-Trajedo heard police approaching, he hid both guns in an air vent in his apartment, according to witnesses.

Claros-Trajedo, an undocumented immigrant, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a public servant. He also faces charges of discharging a firearm in a metro area, tampering with evidence, reckless driving and unlawfully carrying a weapon.

HPD Tactical Flight Officer Jason Knox was killed in the crash and pilot Chase Cormier was critically injured with a broken back. Officer Knox was laid to rest after an emotional funeral on Saturday.

There were reports of shots fired before and after the crash and Police Chief Art Acevedo said six people were arrested.

It’s not clear if Claros-Trajedo was one of those six. He is currently held on $100,000 bond and an immigration hold.

Will Lina Hidalgo make a point of extending help to Claros-Trajedo

Since Lina Hidalgo created a tax-payer funded cache for “immigrants,” the possibility that she might extend this assistance to Mr. Claros-Trajedo (never mind that he was probably shooting at a police helicopter and a policeman was killed).

  1. Officer Anderson speaks to other officers about not violating Americans’ rights (and gets fired)

Officer Anderson says in this video:

You know, as a police officer, I’m compelled to make this video.

I’ve been in law enforcement for 10 years and (I’m speaking to my peers, my other fellow officers, people in any kind of law enforcement position) I’ve seen officers nationwide enforcing tyrannical orders against the people.

I’m hoping it’s the minority of officers, but I’m not sure anymore.

Because every time I turn on the television, every time I look to the Internet, I’m seeing people arrested or cited for going to church, for traveling on the roadways, for going surfing, opening their businesses, going to the park with their families, or for doing their nails out of their own house — using their own house as a place of business. Having undercover agents go there and arrest them, and charge them with — with what? With a crime? I don’t know what crime people are committing by doing nails in their own house. But we’re seeing them do this more and more and more, and uh we need to start looking at ourselves as officers, and thinking, “Is what I’m doing right?”

Now I want I want to remind you that regardless where you stand on the coronavirus, we don’t have the authority to do those things to people just because a mayor or a governor tells you otherwise. I don’t care if it’s your Sergeant or Chief of Police, we don’t get to violate people’s Constitutional rights because somebody in our chain of command tells us otherwise. It’s not how this country works.

For the above video, Officer Anderson was fired

According to a 12 May 2020 Daily Caller article, Officer Anderson was fired from the Seattle Police Force.

Officer Greg AndersonPort of Seattle Police Officer and Special Forces veteran Greg Anderson was reportedly removed from his position after his video about police officers allegedly abusing their power went viral.

In an update video posted Monday to his Instagram, Anderson says he has been terminated from the Port of Seattle Police Department and is on administrative leave pending an investigation.

The Port of Seattle Police Department confirmed Anderson’s suspension in a statement posted on their website that reads in part, “Officer Greg Anderson is on paid administrative leave while we look into allegations that he violated our policy on the use of social media.”

Anderson posted the video May 5, addressing his concerns with police officers across the country enforcing quarantine orders administered by state and local governments.

“I’ve seen officers nationwide enforcing tyrannical orders against the people and I’m hoping it’s the minority of officers, but I’m not sure anymore,” said Anderson in the video that now has over 600,000 views on his Instagram account.

“We don’t get to violate someone’s constitutional rights because somebody in our chain of command tells us otherwise,” he added.

  1. Republican Mike Garcia wins in a 24 point upset in a special election

One America News Network reports on 14 May 2020 that Republican Mike Garcia has won the election in California District 25.

Republican Mike GarciaRepublican Mike Garcia has claimed victory in California, flipping the state’s 25th District seat from blue to red. On Wednesday, his Democrat opponent Christy Smith conceded the special election race and congratulated her rival. She is now setting her sights on the general election in the fall.

The swing district’s seat used to belong to former congresswoman Katie Hill before she resigned from Congress in October over a sex scandal.

Earlier this week, President Trump endorsed Garcia by highlighting the Republicans previous military service, his stance on crime as well as border security and gun rights.

Look for the California victory not to be covered in the Nightly News

Had the Democrat upset the Republican, then this would be evidence of a blue wave coming in November 2020 and would be on every main stream media news outlet. However, since it portends well for Trump, then it will likely be ignored.

  1. In Wisconsin’s 7th, a Republican knocks out a Democrat

The Wausau Daily Herald reports in a 12 May 2020 article that Republican Tom Tiffany upset the Democrat from the seat formerly held by Sean Duffy.

Republican Tom TiffanyTom Tiffany will serve as the next representative of Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District.

Tiffany, a Republican, was elected Tuesday, beating out Democrat Tricia Zunker for the seat during a special election.

Tiffany received 57% of the vote compared with Zunker’s 43%.

  • Tiffany: 109,592 votes
  • Zunker: 81,928 votes

The results in Marathon County closely mirrored the district, with Tiffany winning almost 59% of the vote there to Zunker’s 41% in the county. Just over 50% of registered Marathon County voters turned out to cast a ballot.

In all, more than 91,000 absentee ballots were returned in the district, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission. More than 114,000 people requested one. In Marathon County, around 20,800 absentee ballots were reported returned of the more than 25,000 requested by voters.

Tiffany is facing a quick turnaround after the election. He will be expected in Washington, D.C., starting next week to begin serving in Congress. Tiffany also faces another campaign season, too. Like every other seat in Congress, the 7th Congressional District is on the ballot in November.

Tiffany addressed supporters over a Facebook Live video Tuesday night, with his family beside him. He said Zunker called him Tuesday night, and he congratulated her on running “a good race” in difficult circumstances over the past couple months during the state’s Safer at Home order.

Tiffany said his goal in Congress is “to get America back on its feet” after the economic blow brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. He thanked his family for their support as well as voters in the district.

Seven problems with Democrats forcing us into isolation using coronavirus


Harm centering on acts by Democrats

  1. It’s not just burglaries that went up in Houston, chief says

Houston ABC affiliate KTRK reports that Houston Police Chief points out that the “Stay Home, Work Safe” order by Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo has resulted in higher violent and non-violent crimes.

Houston Police Chief Art AcevedoAs Harris County prepares to compile a list of non-violent inmates to release in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has offered a glimpse into how the city has trended in terms of crime in the last two weeks of strict social distancing guidelines.

Aside from burglaries rising by close to 20 percent, the chief said aggravated assaults similarly increased by 19.3 percent. Additionally, given the broad, statewide order to stay at home, domestic violence incidents have jumped by six percent.

In terms of homicides, the chief observed that rate had gone down over the last couple of weeks. The same was said about robberies as well.

The question is whether Hidalgo’s fought for release of felons will cause a bump of violence

A 19% raise in burglaries is nothing to sneeze at; however, since Democrat judges have been enforcing very low bails for violent crimes and because some of the same judges have released felons on coronavirus fears (in addition to Lina Hidalgo’s attempted release of 1,000 felons), one has to ask when this will have affects.

  1. Commercial burglaries soar since coronavirus emergency measures

The New York Post reports a 75% increase in burglaries since the coronavirus scare began.

DolceboardedupCommercial burglaries in New York City have risen 75 percent amid the coronavirus outbreak, according to data from the NYPD.

Police said 254 businesses have been targeted between March 12, the day a state of emergency order was issued by Mayor Bill de Blasio, and March 31.

This is up from the 145 burglaries recorded for the same time period last year, NYPD officials said.

“What we are seeing is that criminals are specifically targeting cash businesses, supermarkets and bodegas,” said NYPD Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri.

LiPetri noted that the method behind many of the burglaries has changed due to the emergency measures put in place to halt COVID-19’s spread, which forced many businesses to shut their doors.

“The opportunities are in a different place. There’s a lot less happening during the day, for example a lot less trucks are getting robbed. The burglaries we are seeing now are more organized and specifically targeted. There’s much more night-time entry, more forced entry, individuals breaking locks to get into businesses while they are closed,” LiPetri said.

This might cause people to rethink going to New York after the pandemic

The pandemic did not cause these burglaries. These burglaries came out of an attitude (commonly known by us religious folk that the New York Times wants to blame for coronavirus as “sin”) that doesn’t have much regard for the needs of others.

Considering the prevalence of that attitude, it might be a good idea to redirect your travel plans.

  1. Chicago Mayor Signs Executive Order Giving Coronavirus Benefits To Illegal Aliens

The Daily Caller points out how Chicago has lined up to give our tax dollars to illegal aliens.

lori-lightfootChicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Tuesday signed an executive order ensuring that all immigrants and refugees — including illegal aliens — are eligible to receive the city’s coronavirus benefits.

The city of Chicago has launched several programs in order to help residents cope with the financial challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Such initiatives include a coronavirus Housing Assistance Grant program, an online resources program for students through the city’s public schools, and a $100 million Chicago Small Business Resiliency Fund to help small businesses that are struggling.

Lightfoot’s order Tuesday will allow illegal aliens to tap into all of these programs.

“This order is more than just an official decree, it is a statement of our values as a city and as Americans,” the Democratic mayor said during the press conference.

I have no problem with charity; however, I do not want to promote lawlessness

Throughout the arguments over the border, I have continually pointed out my support (that is, the things to which I have contributed either effort or money) of certain Baptist and non-denominational charities that go generally to the poor. However, when it comes to enabling law breaking, I cannot support any such effort.

This quarantine, based on constantly-changing statistics on the mortality of coronavirus, should likewise change. In fact, it should go away in all of the areas where the deaths have not yet reached even one thousand for the state.

As of the writing of this blog post on 9 April 2020, there were 23 deaths in Harris County related to coronavirus. For that, Lina Hidalgo shut down businesses and has issued a month-long house arrest that she wants to extend for 6.33 million citizens (and God only knows how many illegal aliens, but they seem to be allowed to stand on corners in large groups).

This needs to end.

Harm coming from Democrats (in and out of the Press) using misinformation

  1. Pritzker: ‘Frankly, Very Many Fewer People Would Die’ If Trump Had Acted Earlier on Coronavirus

Breitbart reports on the complaining Democrat that had nothing to say about Pelosi’s misdirected actions.

Gov._J.B._PritzkerSunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) said President Donald Trump did not act early enough to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Pritzker said, “We now know that intelligence sources and all the best advice that was given was given in January and early February to the president and the White House, and they seem not to have acted at all upon it. If they had started in February building ventilators, getting ready for this pandemic, we would not have the problems we have today, and frankly, very many fewer people would die.”

Why not bring up the words of Pelosi and Biden?

Trump closed our borders to travel from China by an announcement made on 31 January 2020 (effective on 5:00 p.m. on 2 February). In response to this, Nancy Pelosi called the ban “outrageous, un-American, and threatens ‘rule of law.’

Additionally, in late March 2020, Pelosi brought a group into Chinatown in San Francisco (now an epicenter of the coronavirus) as she encouraged people to come and shop.

Biden called Trump’s closure of America to those who had recently traveled to China “hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science

As for the acts of Democrat governors to prevent the spread of coronavirus, I cannot find a single article documenting the work done. Therefore, considering the press that works hand-in-glove with all Democrats to promote them, we can assume that nothing was done by Democrats to stop coronavirus. Based on that, please shut up, Mr. Pritzker.

  1. MSNBC host criticizes Republican states over pandemic, but ignores the fact that 36% of cases are in Democrat-run New York

The Western Journal pointed out how MSNBC showed its bias in multiple ways.

The mainstream media never fails to exploit a crisis, and COVID-19 is no exception.

Since the beginning, the media has sought to use the situation as a way to undermine President Donald Trump.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell continued the effort on Monday, citing a Washington Post article that attempted to place blame for the spread of the virus at Trump’s feet.

“Well, ‘denial’ and ‘dysfunction’ have been the two words of the day, words that are used by The Washington Post in a searing account of the failures of the Trump administration to take COVID-19 seriously as the virus made its way from China into the U.S.,” Mitchell said, according to NewsBusters.

“For more than two months, time was squandered, warnings ignored, President Trump dismissing the virus as a hoax initially, only to lash out at the press and boast about his social media following.”

Contrary to the establishment media narrative of the administration having been in denial, Trump banned travel of foreign nationals from China to the U.S. on Jan. 31, one day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed human-to-human transmission of the virus in the United States.

This does not sound like the action of an administration in denial.

As for Mitchell’s assertion that Trump dismissed the virus as a hoax, even the liberal-leaning fact-checker Snopes has debunked this claim.

Trump did not call the virus itself a hoax. He said the attempts by Democrats and those in the media to blame the virus on him were a new hoax, a claim that seems to have been confirmed by their subsequent behavior.

For his decision to ban travel from China, Trump was ridiculed by the media and by Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, who accused him of “xenophobia.”

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency,” Biden tweeted.

02 BidenTweet

For weeks after Trump’s decision to restrict travel from China, prominent Democrats demonstrated they were not taking the threat of the virus seriously.

As late as Feb. 24, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was encouraging people to flock to San Fransisco’s Chinatown.

“We want to be vigilant about what is out there in other places,” she said at the time. “We want to be careful about how we deal with it, but we do want to say to people, ‘Come to Chinatown, here we are — we’re, again, careful, safe — and come join us.’”

On March 2, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged people “to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus.”

03 deBlasioTweet

And on March 10, long after the White House coronavirus task force was up and running, New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was encouraging people to go out to Chinese restaurants because the establishments were “feeling the pain of racism.”

These statements from prominent Democrats sound an awful lot like denial, certainly more so than anything coming from the Trump administration during the same time period.

But, of course, the media does not care about that. With every story, their only concern is how it can best be used to hurt Trump.

That effort continues to this day, and it has now broadened to include not only Trump, but also his supporters.

Citing The Post piece, Mitchell asserted Monday that “there were a number of people in red states early on who didn’t heed the warnings to socially distance because they believed the president’s false comments.”

Instead of criticizing liberal politicians representing urban constituencies for not taking the virus as seriously as they should, she opted to focus on people living in “red states” instead.

But thus far, the hardest-hit areas have not been “red” areas — they’ve been liberal-run cities in states that are either predominantly run by Democrats or that have at least a Democratic governor.

There were roughly 423,135 confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. as of Wednesday afternoon, according to data from Johns Hopkins.

Of the 10 hardest-hit states, just two — Florida, No. 7, and Georgia, No. 10 — have Republican governors.

New York state, which is dominated by Democratic politicians, had a whopping 150,697 cases, or roughly 36 percent of the nationwide total.

As anyone who has looked at the media knows, it is biased against conservatism

Even when it would kill main stream media outlets (or their audience) to report the party line, they will report the party line. With only a few exceptions (and these seem to be made in order to bring in the errant conservative), the main stream media stays with the Democrat talking points.

  1. Liberal media lets in Chinese propagandist to White House press briefings, tries to throw out conservatives

Lifezette points out how the liberal media let a Chinese propagandist in to the White House Press Briefings and tried to throw out conservatives.

At Monday’s White House coronavirus task force press briefing, President Trump called on a reporter. She uttered, “Only last week, there were multiple flights coming from China full of medical supplies. Companies like Huawei and Alibaba have been donating to the United States, like 1.5 million N95 masks and also a lot of medical gloves, and much more medical supplies.”

The president smelled a con job. He stated, “Sounds like a statement more than a question,” followed by, “Are you cooperating with China?” She dithered. “Who are you working for, China?” Trump pressed. “Who are you with?”

The reporter said, “Um, no, I’m working for— Hong Kong Phoenix TV,” to which Trump inquired, “Who owns that? China?” Her reply: “It’s based in Hong Kong. It’s a privately owned company.”

Notice the dodge on the question. It turns out, according to Fox News, “Within minutes of the exchange in the briefing room, consultant Elliot Schwartz flagged that in 2018, a former Phoenix TV news director testified as part of an FCC filing that the outlet is essentially controlled by China’s Communist Propaganda Department, and follows a directive to not report positively on the United States.

“Specifically, that former TV news director, Chung Pong, remarked: ‘I know from personal experience that Phoenix TV‘s content is subject to the dictates of the leadership of the Central Communist Propaganda Department, Central Communist Overseas Propaganda Office, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which often directly sent instructions to Phoenix Satellite TV.’”

Why would the main stream media outlets pull a Chinese propagandist into this?

Unless there is an ideological agreement between the main stream media and the Chinese Communist Party, why would they pull a woman into the press briefing who had previously produced propaganda for the CCP?

  1. American media still using China’s bogus numbers on new Wuhan Coronavirus cases

Townhall comments on the way American media has still using been China’s bogus numbers on new Wuhan Coronavirus cases.

Despite mountains of direct evidence the Chinese Communist Party lied about the number of cases and deaths from Wuhan coronavirus within its own borders, members of the United States media are still touting their fake data.

04 NBC Tweet

First, China has stopped conducting or reporting testing. No testing magically means the CCP can report no new cases.

05 LoKinhei Tweet

Second, the Chinese people have exposed their own government for lying.

06 Global Times Tweet

(Read the final point regarding burial urns at Townhall)

Remember also that China early-on refused help

Remember that the Chinese Communist Party would not allow members of the Centers from Disease Control or the World Health Organization entry into China. That (along with the changing narrative out of China on the origin of the disease) would suggest that they have something to hide.

Six stories where you’ll say “I thought so!”


  1. Flashback to 2013: Scientists warned that bats and Chinese wet markets could foster the next pandemic

The Daily Caller uses a 27 March 2020 article to point us back to a previous warning provided through the journal Science.

Scientists warned that Chinese wet markets like the one in Wuhan could be a breeding ground for the next SARS-like pandemic — in 2013.

“Researchers say they have for the first time isolated a closely related virus from bats in China that can infect human cells,” Kai Kupferschmidt wrote in October of 2013.

The warning came just over a decade after 2002’s deadly SARS outbreak, and Kupferschmidt cited a number of researchers and scientists who saw the potential for those viruses to not only infect humans but to spread globally once they had done so.

Coronaviruses such as SARS and MERS had long been linked to bats, although in most cases, scientists believed that there was an intermediate step or host animal that was infected before the virus made the jump to humans.

But the data collected in 2013 suggested that an intermediate host animal might not actually be necessary.

As for myself, I did not expect this. However, it does not surprise me.

After the things that I have recently read about the possible beginnings of the current coronavirus, it would not surprise me to find that people more familiar with Chinese markets and virology. That is, although I am no expert in cardiovascular topics, I am no more surprised at this report of an earlier warning than I was at the announcement by the government in the 1960’s that cigarette smoking harmed your lungs.

  1. Devin Nunes: Majority of Americans Believe the Opposite of What News Media Says

Breitbart relays the words of Representative Nunes taken from an interview made during The Trevor Carey Show.

Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, joined The Trevor Carey Show recently, where he discussed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) efforts to include non-essential measures into a bill to assist Americans during the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

One of the measures Pelosi and her party attempted to include in the bill was retirement plans for community newspaper employees. Nunes said:

If you don’t think that 90 percent of the media, including many of the local media, if you don’t think they’re working for the Democrats, you are fooling yourself. Why would they put that in there? They put that in there because they want these retirement plans, they want to socialize the news media.

Nunes said the Democrats’ efforts are a way to “promote their party to stay in power,” which he said is “not surprising.”

“I really think it was a misstep,” Nunes continued. “What they don’t understand now is that we’re approaching now half of America that when they see stuff in the fake news, they actually believe the opposite. They don’t realize that they’re having that effect.”

Nunes added:

What was maybe 25 percent of people three years ago, or before Trump was elected, just disregarded what the media said. I bet we’re approaching 50 percent of Americans: if the mainstream news media says something, they just think it’s not true and must be the opposite.

“It’s starting to backfire on them, not nearly fast enough,” Nunes concluded. “They’re causing panic, they’re really hurting the economy, meaning the press and their Democratic allies.

Maybe this statement comes from the confirmation bias of Representative Nunes

Still, it rings true with me. Certainly, I rarely believe things reported through main stream media outlets unless I double-check those reports through other sources.

Mind you, I do regularly cite liberal sources like the New York Times in either:

  • An effort to show what liberals think or
  • An effort to convince liberals of a point by using a source that they accept.

Therefore, I fully understand how Devin Nunes can divorce main stream media from the truth. Main stream media ran out on the truth long ago.

  1. New York City wants taxpayer bailout for low wage migrant economy

Breitbart reports in a 27 March 2020 article that New York City has called for US taxpayer baillout of illegal aliens.

Taxpayers should bail out the low-wage migrant workers who support the city’s elite economy during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report by the city’s comptroller, Scott Stringer.

Legal immigrants and illegal migrants are part of the city’s one million population who are “too often ignored, underpaid, and overworked … [and] very often lack healthcare, have to travel long distances to get to work, and struggle with childcare,” said Stringer’s March 26 report.

But Stringer’s plea for a taxpayer bailout of city’s cheap labor economy ignores the reality that Americans are impoverished by the elite’s support for mass migration, said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies.

The report cites impoverished “Nurses, janitors, grocery clerks, childcare staff, bus and truck drivers … those in our social service, cleaning, delivery and warehouse, grocery, healthcare, and public transit industries.”

“Back in the day when these workers were Americans and unionized, they were making more than a living wage,” she said. Before elites encouraged millions of legal and illegal migrants to flood Americans’ workplaces, she said:

People raised their families on those jobs — they were good jobs … They were jobs that people were glad to have, where they could support their families [and homes] on them. They had [medical] benefits. If that was still the system …. they would have  good healthcare plans, and they would have sick leave.

Stringer is asking for “taxpayers to subsidize the city’s cheap labor economy,” and to preserve the city’s policy of  “corporate welfare through illegal immigration,” Vaughan said.

The disguised plea for the illegal immigration bailout is spotlighted by Stringer’s back-handed admission that “many in New York City are also undocumented, meaning they do all of the above while living in fear of deportation under the current federal administration.”

When have liberals not wanted a taxpayer bailout for illegal aliens?

Wasn’t it just four months ago that New York was handing out drivers licenses to illegal aliens? If I remember correctly, it was explained to me that this was done in an effort to blur the lines between those who had entered the US illegally and those who had either been born into citizenship or had followed the rules. Thence, it was an effort to defeat the law through this blurring of the lines, New York asked the US taxpayer to pick up expenses that would normally only go to deserving US citizens.

Similarly, wasn’t it early in 2019 that New York gave free college to illegal aliens as a slap to President Trump?

  1. China temporarily bars entry from foreign visitors amid coronavirus pandemic

As reported by Fox News on 27 March 2020, China has decided to temporarily bar entry from foreign visitors amid coronavirus pandemic.

China will temporarily close its borders to foreign nationals, effective midnight Saturday, in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.
“The suspension is a temporary measure that China is compelled to take in light of the outbreak situation and the practices of other countries,” China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced in a statement Thursday. “China will stay in close touch with all sides and properly handle personnel exchanges with the rest of the world under the special circumstances.”

The restriction will apply to foreigners holding visas or resident permits, and those with APEC Business Travel Cards.

Entry with diplomatic, service, courtesy or C visas will still be allowed, as well as entry for economic, trade, scientific or technological activities or those entering for emergency humanitarian needs.

President Trump banned travel from China in late January to slow the spread of the virus, and other European countries followed suit.

Hong Kong, too, effected a ban Wednesday on all non-residents from entering the island.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Communist Party have recently  touted a dip in new coronavirus cases, claiming that any pop-ups of the virus have been “imported.”

Analysts like foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang say not to give much weight to the word of Chinese leadership.

“For China, the truth has always been a casualty,” Chang told Fox News.

He added that Beijing has been pushing to send China back to work and show the world that China, under Xi’s leadership, has beaten coronavirus.

Of course, this might mean that China has experienced a resurgence of the virus

As much as I want to return to work, this bit of news suggests three things:

  • First, it suggests that we cannot depend on the Chinese (who told us weeks ago that their cases of Covid-19 were in decline)
  • Second, as much as we may want to return to work, we must affirm life at all stages by figuring out ways all of us can work safely and quarantining those who have fallen under this coronavirus.
  • Finally, we must open ourselves to messages from our ideological advisaries while retaining enough sense to discern idiocy from a workable idea.

  1. Surprise! Democrats shut down cities in coronavirus scare and US unemployment claims reach record 3.28M this week

After watching Democrat leaders in California, New York, Houston, and Dallas shut down businesses (and, therefore, with over half of the nation’s population on lockdown) — we find that a main stream media outlet obsessing on the record unemployment created by the Democrats (but not drawing a single reference to the Democrats).

Nearly 3.3 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week – almost five times the previous record set in 1982 – amid a widespread economic shutdown caused by the coronavirus.

The surge in weekly applications was a stunning reflection of the damage the viral outbreak is inflicting on the economy. Filings for unemployment aid generally reflect the pace of layoffs.

Layoffs are sure to accelerate as the U.S. economy sinks into a recession. Revenue has collapsed at restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, gyms and airlines. Auto sales are plummeting, and car makers have closed factories. Most such employers face loan payments and other fixed costs, so they’re cutting jobs to save money.

As job losses mount, some economists say the nation’s unemployment rate could approach 13% by May. By comparison, the highest jobless rate during the Great Recession, which ended in 2009, was 10%.

“What seemed impossible just two weeks ago is now reality,” said Nancy Vanden Houten, an economist at Oxford Economics, a consulting firm. “The US economy will experience the largest economic contraction on record with the most severe surge in unemployment ever.”

The economic deterioration has been swift. As recently as February, the unemployment rate was at a 50-year low of 3.5%. And the economy was growing steadily if modestly. Yet by the April-June quarter of the year, some economists think the economy will shrink at its steepest annual pace ever – a contraction that could reach 30%.

In its report Thursday, the Labor Department said 3.283 million people applied for unemployment benefits last week, up from 282,000 during the previous week. Many people who have lost jobs in recent weeks, though, have been unable to file for unemployment aid because state websites and phone systems have been overwhelmed by a crush of applicants and have frozen up.

That logjam suggests that Thursday’s report actually understates the magnitude of job cuts last week. So does the fact that workers who are not on company payrolls – gig workers, free-lancers, the self-employed – aren’t currently eligible for unemployment benefits even though in many cases they’re no longer able to earn money.

Based on this, it looks like Democrats have had even worse of an impact on the economy

It looks like the hidden economy of musicians, waiters, and other workers who work for tips have been devastated. Likewise, weekend disk jockeys, the party clowns, and other small-time performers had their lives put on hold. In the same way, a number of jobs that I cannot as much as call to mind have been put on hold.

Somehow, there needs to be a way to balance safety and work — and that balance needs to be located now.

  1. Project 21: Dems’ identity politics quite apparent amidst pandemic

OneNewsNow reported through a 25 March 2020 article how Project 21 (an alliance of conservative, young Blacks) has pointed out the identity politics being used by Democrats in the coronavirus scare.

A conservative black leader says it’s sad that Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats are playing “identity politics” with the much-needed coronavirus relief package being debated in Congress.

While the White House and the Senate have apparently agreed on a $2 trillion emergency bill to resuscitate an economy that’s been slammed by the coronavirus pandemic, it appears the Democrat-led House could be a stumbling block to its passage. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has drawn a great deal of criticism from President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers for using the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity to push the Democrats’ radical political agenda.

The version of an aid package she proposed on Monday required that any company getting coronavirus-related aid disclose its diversity stats, including its employees’ race, gender, and pay, its corporate board “diversity,” and the structure of its offices that deal with diversity and inclusion.

OneNewsNow spoke with Horace Cooper, who is co-chairman of the >Project 21 Black Leadership Network.

“You would think that we could come together at this point and come up with solutions. It is a sad, sad thing to observe,” he laments. “Racial discrimination is not the problem that is facing America. Coming together and developing solutions so that we can address this pandemic – that’s where our effort ought to be.

“So shame, shame on those who can’t get around their identity politics,” he continues. “The only thing I can say is: it’s something that the American people can see with both eyes now.”

According to Fox News, >Pelosi may be warming to the Senate bill, signaling “tepid support” for the bipartisan bill – and expressing gratitude only to her fellow Democrats for their role in putting together legislation she said “does not go as far” as she and House Democrats proposed earlier this week.

Luckily for those out of work due to Democrat governors, mayors, and judges — this changed, because Americans need help

Luckily, Nancy Pelosi went from insisting that Americans pay millions to Planned Parenthood to just insisting that American pay millions to the Kennedy Center, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and many other liberal projects before they American people get help.

Three stories of good news concerning coronavirus


  1. One hundred and fifty thousand immigrants from seventy-two nations with coronavirus stopped at border

The Washington Examiner reported in a 11 March 2020 article that 150,000 immigrants from 72 nations with coronavirus have been stopped at border.

Some 150,000 illegal immigrants from 72 nations with cases of the coronavirus have been apprehended or deemed inadmissible from entering the United States since November, raising the ongoing border crisis to a potential public health threat, according to officials.

ReturnToMexicoPolicyFruitsNew figures provided to Secrets show that over half of the nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants apprehended or deemed “inadmissible” this fiscal year came from nations with cases of the coronavirus, including China, Italy, Iran, and South Korea.

The administration has been bracing for a federal court decision that would junk its “remain in Mexico” policy and open the doors on the southwest border. But the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday put that on hold as legal arguments on both sides continue in the liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees Arizona and California.

“The border/immigration situation has taken on a whole new dynamic; it’s a public health threat,” said an official.

Secrets recently reported that 328 Chinese immigrants had been seized illegally crossing the border since the virus outbreak began in China.

So far, 150,958 immigrants from 72 nations with the virus have been stopped at the border. DHS has sought to return, repatriate, and remove as many as possible.

What’s more, another 43,000 from Latin nations including Venezuela, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti and Nicaragua — nations that haven’t reported the virus — have been turned away to wait.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said last week none of the immigrants stopped by agents showed signs of the virus.

The administration has been making the case that continuing the so-called Migrant Protection Protocols that keep immigrants in Mexico pending approval to come into the U.S. to seek asylum is both an important national security and health security issue.

“MPP is all the more critical to keep Americans safe and healthy, which can only be accomplished through lawful and orderly migration,” said an official.

Another said, “We have a unique public health threat posed by individuals arriving unlawfully at the border, where migrants, law enforcement officials, frontline personnel, and the American public are put at risk. All it would take is a single infected individual to impact the detained migrant community within DHS facilities. Without proper precautions, which can only happen through orderly, lawful migration, the virus threatens to spread rapidly. Any halting of MPP would exacerbate this threat.”

Should the policy be lifted, holding stations run by the Department of Homeland Security would immediately fill up, and, there is the potential that the spillover would have to be shipped to facilities around the country.

Luckily, the Supreme Court has decided to uphold President Trump’s right to keep this policy

Even the liberal-left, Trump bashing CNN reported that the Supreme court upheld Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

In this age of Coronavirus panic, at least the Supreme court seems more reasonable than Bernie and Biden, both of whom pledged to open the border.

  1. Mullah who said Coronavirus was Allah’s punishment
    catches …

This comes from the department of “if you are going to claim an illness constitutes divine punishment on a group, make sure you don’t also catch the illness.” According to a MEMRI article published on 28 February 2020, one Iraqi Shi’ite scholar claimed that the Coronavirus was Allah’s punishment of China for their mockery of Islam.

https://youtu.be/K7BENXxou60
Shi’ite Iraqi Islamic scholar Hadi Al-Modarresi, who is based in Qom, Iran, said in a video that was uploaded to the Internet on February 28, 2020 that the spread of coronavirus is undoubtedly an act of Allah that is divine punishment against the Chinese for their treatment, mockery, and disrespect towards Muslims and Islam. In early March, online sources reported that Al-Modarresi contracted coronavirus.

HadiAl-ModarresiHadi Al-Modarresi: “It is obvious that the spread of this virus is an act of Allah. How do we know this? The spread of the coronavirus began in China, an ancient and vast country, the population of which makes up one seventh of humanity. More than a billion people live in that country. The authorities in that country are tyrannical and they laid siege to more than a million Muslims and placed them under house arrest. The journalists in that country began to mock the niqab of Muslim women and they forced Muslim men to eat pork and drink wine. Allah sent a disease upon them and this disease laid siege to 40 million [Chinese people]. The same niqab that they mocked has been forced upon them, both men and women, by Allah, by means of the state authorities and officials.

[…]

“Islam forbade people from eating insects, but [the Chinese] mocked this matter. And there you have it, this disease spread from the world of animals – be it bats, ants, or snakes, the result is the same – to the human world and it has scared humanity in its entirety.”

Occasionally, you just have to laugh

While I don’t minimize the risk of suffering to this man, the eternal risk to his soul by following a twisting of the message of the gospel will cost him much more.

Still, in this case, you just have to step back and laugh when someone gets hoisted on his own petard.

petard

Of course, other pieces of good news float all around this story. First, the good news that (in spite of both our self-righteousness [Romans 10:3] and sin [Romans 3:23]), God loves us and even this man and wants both us and him in heaven, if he (or we) would only accept the gift [John 3:16]. Another piece of good news previously blogged here is that Iranians have been turning to Christ due to the heavy hand of the regime, one-on-one evangelism, and the calling of God through dreams. Maybe this man can be reached.

  1. Most coronavirus patients recover, still anxiety, fear loom

According to an Associated Press article published 11 March 2020, most coronavirus patients recover. Still, with all of the media-driven hype, everyone is anxious. Therefore, it is really surprising when a bit of truth leaks out through the main stream media (as highlighted by the bolding, which is mine).

Amid all the fears, quarantines and stockpiling of food, it has been easy to ignore the fact that more than 60,000 people have recovered from the coronavirus spreading around the globe.

recovered
A recovered patient

The disease can cause varying degrees of illness and is especially troublesome for older adults and people with existing health problems, who are at risk of severe effects, including pneumonia. But for most of those affected, coronavirus creates only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, with the vast majority recovering from the virus.

According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe ailments may take three to six weeks to rebound. In mainland China, where the virus first exploded, more than 80,000 people have been diagnosed, but more than 60,000 already have recovered.

Because the difference in impact can be so great, global health authorities have the difficult task of alerting the public to the virus’ dangers without creating panic.

Already, the widespread consequences of the virus have been staggering, sending shock waves through the world’s financial markets. Global oil prices sustained their worst percentage losses since the the Gulf War in 1991, and new restrictions were imposed in Italy and in Israel as the Holy Week approached.

But even some of the most vulnerable patients can fight their way through the disease.

Charlie Campbell’s father, 89-year-old Eugene Campbell, has been diagnosed with the coronavirus and is hospitalized in Edmonds, Washington. Charlie Campbell said his father’s doctor is cautiously optimistic, adding, “Under normal circumstances, he would discharge my dad, but these aren’t normal circumstances.”

Who would think that the truth might leak out of the main stream media

Among all of the coverage of the hype, who would think that the news that “most patients recover” would be reported? Additionally, who would think that a caption to a graphic within the same article might point out that many cases have recovered? The take-away from that may be a conclusion that a medical doctor brought out during a radio interview on AM 740 KTRH: many people have probably caught the coronavirus without noticing that they had it and have recovered (thence, the mortality rate of this disease may be multiple times lower than originally projected).

Nineteen stories on how Democrats hurt citizens and help illegal aliens


Washington State to Make Illegal Immigrants Eligible for Student Loans

The Epoch Times reported in a 4 March 2020 article that the state of Washington has decided to make illegal aliens eligible for student loans.

WashingtonStateLawmakers are working on a bill that would enable illegal immigrants in the state of Washington to have access to student loans for college.

Senate Bill 6561, originally sponsored by a group of 11 Democrats, aims to set up a student loan program for Washington’s illegal immigrants, including recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, who are not eligible for federal financial aid.

The new aid program, according to the latest version of the bill, is intended to offer “low-interest student loans that are competitive with federal student loan programs.” It is not expected to interfere with state funding or aid for students who have legal immigration status, as the program would be funded by public and private donations and grants. The state of Washington will match donations up to $2 million every two years.

The bill passed the Senate last month in a 34-14 vote and is now being reviewed in the Democrat-majority House of Representatives. If passed in the House and signed into law by Gov. Jay Inslee, it would take effect on July 1, 2021.

The bill does not address the issue of whether the recipients, especially those who don’t have DACA, can repay their loans. The DACA program, created by the Obama administration in 2012, grants those who were illegally brought to the United States as children protection from deportation and renewable two-year work permits. Not having DACA usually means not having the ability to work to make student loan payments.

(Read more at The Epoch Times)

When there is no provision to make certain that the illegal pays the loan back, who do you think will be left on the hook?

Maybe it will be the same dupes that AOC wants to pick up the tab for flying illegals formerly deported due to crimes committed (refer to the article below on AOC’s bill The New Way Forward.)

Criminals would be protected from deportation under bill AOC and other House Democrats back

Tucker Carlson of Fox News says that the New Way Forward bill would end the deportation of rapists, robbers, and similar felonies. Additionally, there would be other deleterious effects of this ill-conceived bill.

Like the Constitution, this legislation is designed to create a whole new country. The bill would entirely remake our immigration system, with the explicit purpose of ensuring that criminals are able to move here, and settle here permanently, with impunity.

A document produced by Democrats to promote the bill says: “Convictions … should not lead to deportation.”

garciaKeep in mind, we’re not talking about convictions for double parking. The bill targets felony convictions – serious crimes that send you to prison for years. A press release from Rep., Jesus Garcia, D-Ill., is explicit about this.

Garcia brags that the bill will break the “prison to deportation pipeline.” How does the bill do that? Under current U.S. law, legal U.S. immigrants can be deported if they commit an “aggravated felony” or a “crime of moral turpitude” – that is, a vile, depraved act, like molesting a child. Under the New Way Forward Act, “crimes of moral turpitude” are eliminated entirely as a justification for deportation. And the category of “aggravated felony” gets circumscribed too.

What does that mean?

Consider this: Under current law, immigrants who commit serious crimes – such as robbery, fraud, or child sexual abuse – must be deported, regardless of the sentence they receive. Other crimes – less severe ones like racketeering – require deportation as long as the perpetrator receives at least a one-year sentence.

But if this bill passes the House and Senate and is signed into law by the president, there will no longer be any crimes that automatically require deportation. None.

And one crime – falsifying a passport – will be made immune from deportation, no matter what. Because apparently 9/11 never happened, and we no longer care about fake government documents.

If the New Way Forward Act becomes law, immigrants who commit those crimes and receive those sentences would remain in the country. They’ll all be eligible for citizenship one day, too.

But even that is understating the law’s effect. Even a five-year prison sentence won’t necessarily be enough to secure deportation. The bill would grant sweeping new powers to immigration judges, allowing them to nullify a deportation order.

The only requirement is that “the immigration judge finds such an exercise of discretion appropriate in pursuit of humanitarian purposes, to assure family unity, or when it is otherwise in the public interest.” In other words, anti-American immigration judges – and many of them are exactly that – would have a blank check to open the borders. No vote required.

Sound shocking to you? We’re just getting started. Current U.S. law makes drug addiction grounds for deportation, because why wouldn’t it? This bill would eliminate that statute.

Current law also states that those who have committed drug crimes abroad, or any “crimes involving moral turpitude,” are ineligible to immigrate here. The New Way Forward Act abolishes that statute.


The legislation doesn’t just make it harder to deport legal immigrants who commit crimes. It doesn’t just make it easier for criminals to legally move here. The bill would also effectively abolish all existing enforcement against illegal immigration.

To detain illegal immigrants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would have to prove in court that the illegal immigrants are dangerous or a flight risk. But of course, ICE wouldn’t be allowed to use a detainee’s prior criminal behavior as proof he or she is dangerous. That’s banned.

ICE would have to overcome even more hurdles if the detainee claims to be gay or transgender, under 21, or can’t speak English and an interpreter isn’t immediately available.

In other words, it would be much harder to arrest an illegal alien than it is to arrest you. They’re the protected class here. You’re just some loser who’s paying for it all.

But believe it or not, we saved the nuttiest part for last. What could be more destructive than changing U.S. law, specifically to allow rapists, child molesters, and drug dealers to stay in America? How about this: Using taxpayer money to bring deported criminals back into America.

That’s right. This bill would not only abolish your right to control who lives in your own country, but it invents a new right in return: the “right to come home.”

The bill orders the government to create a “pathway for those previously deported to apply to return to their homes and families in the United States,” as long as they would have been eligible to stay under the new law.

The Department of Homeland Security must spend taxpayer dollars transporting convicted criminal illegal aliens into the United States. Who will be eligible for these free flights? Tens of thousands of people kicked out of this country for all kinds of crimes. Sexual abuse. Robbery. Assault. Drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, human trafficking.

From 2002 to 2018, 480,000 people were deported for illegal entry or reentry into America. And under this bill, you’d have to buy them all a plane ticket to come back. The tickets alone would cost about a billion dollars, and that’s before Democrats make you start paying for these criminals’ free health care, too. Which they plan to.

This New Way Forward is one insane Democrat pipe dream and a good reason to remove them from office

The New Way Forward provides illegal aliens:

  • Protection from being deported for committing felonies (rape, child molestation, robbery, …)
  • Protection from the crime of falsifying a passport
  • An opening of a path to citizenship for criminal illegal aliens
  • Protection by social justice judges (who would have latitude to open the borders)
  • A pathway for criminals from other nations to moving here
  • Protection from ICE (who would have its hands bound for even violent offenders)
  • A free ride back into America if they had been deported due to breaking US law

What does this bill do to support the common American worker (Hispanic, Black, or not)?

  • Nothing

AOC and her Squad stand against amendment protecting Americans from sexual predators

Townhall comments on how AOC and her squad have opposed an amendment that would protect Americans from sexual predators.

A large group of House Democrats prioritized woke culture over national security on Thursday during debate over a bill to protect the rights of Transportation Safety Administration employees. The bill’s intent is to level the playing field between TSA workers and other federal government employees.

One-hundred and seventy-four House Democrats voted against an amendment to the bill that will ensure that anyone found guilty of sexual misconduct, violent crime or suspected terrorism would not be hired by TSA, the Washington Free Beacon originally reported. The amendment was put forth by Democratic Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (D-IL) and supported by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).  The amendment passed, with 42 House Democrats joining the GOP minority.

SquadAgainstProtectingAmericansFromSexualAttacksLeading the opposition to the amendment, which largely serves public safety, was the progressive “squad” including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA); Speaker Pelosi elected not to vote on the amendment in question. Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) cited proven cases of sexual misconduct by TSA employees, and argued that Rep. Underwood’s amendment will keep predators off of federal payrolls, per Free Beacon:

“We have two options today: Adopt the Underwood amendment and keep sexual predators off of the federal payroll, or reject it and reward sexual predators with a paycheck from the taxpayer,” Rep. Lesko said.

Voting against a measure that would protect Americans from sexual predators is a new low for the squad.

If the Squad stands in support of a bill that allows sexual predators to remain, they are not the party of #MeToo

Along with Black Lives Matter actions that tries to victimize blacks, this support for sexual predators shows that Democrats support criminality, not your standard American.

Nonetheless, surely Democrats cannot be completely blind to the needs of legally voting American. Therefore, in my responses to the next sixteen or so articles, maybe I can track the degree of concern there might be for American citizens.

Chicago Ignored ICE Detainer On Illegal Alien — Now He’s Been Arrested For Allegedly Abusing A Toddler

The Daily Caller reported in a 29 February 2020 article that Chicago ignored an ICE detainer on an illegal alien who now has been arrested for abusing a toddler.

An illegal alien arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a toddler would have been in federal custody had the Chicago Police Department in 2019 honored an immigration detainer on him and not release him back into the community.

Christopher PuenteImmigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer for Christopher Puente, 34-year-old Mexican national living in the U.S. illegally, with the Chicago Police Department in June 2019 upon his arrest for theft. However, that detainer request was ignored, and Puente has since been charged with sexually abusing a child, according to a press release by the agency.

An ICE spokesperson ripped Chicago leaders, noting that their lack of cooperation could have prevented Puente’s alleged crime.

“How many more victims must there be before lawmakers realize that sanctuary policies do not protect the innocent?” Robert Guadian, field office director of Chicago Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), asked in a statement. “Puente should have been in ICE custody last year and removed to his home country. Instead, irresponsible lawmaking allowed him to walk free and prey on our most vulnerable.”

In this case of a repeat offender illegal alien who was released by Democrats, the level of concern for this three-year-old seems to be low

Democrats, by releasing this repeat offender, showed little concern for law-abiding Americans, their offspring, and even the somewhat law-abiding community of illegal aliens. Still, who is counting?

I am. This is another loss for Americans and a win for illegals.

Chicago Mayor Defends Freeing Illegal Alien Accused of Child Sexual Assault

Breitbart lets the mayor of Chicago defend the release of an illegal alien who now has been accused of child sexual assault.

Lightfoot-PuenteChicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) and the Chicago Police Department are defending freeing an illegal alien convicted felon who allegedly sexually assaulted a three-year-old girl in a public bathroom.

As Breitbart News reported, 35-year-old illegal alien Christopher Puente from Mexico was charged in Chicago, Illinois, with one count of predatory criminal sexual assault after he allegedly locked himself in a McDonald’s bathroom stall with a three-year-old girl and proceeded to sexually assault her.

Puente could have been transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody by Chicago law enforcement officials in June 2019, but instead, the sanctuary city released the illegal alien back into the general public.

In statements to local media, Lightfoot and Chicago Police officials defended their release of Puente months before he allegedly sexually assaulted the three-year-old girl.

“If ICE is complaining, then they should do their job better,” Lightfoot said. She continued:

[ICE officials are] critical because we have said very clearly we are a welcoming city, a sanctuary city. Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business. And that’s affected their ability to conduct immigration raids across the city. But that’s exactly our intention. We have to make sure our police department is seen as a legitimate force in all our communities.

Likewise, Chicago Police officials defended their sanctuary city policy in a statement:

The Chicago Police Department remains committed to protecting all Chicago residents regardless of their immigration status. Our pledge to restrict ICE access to our information systems and our refusal to cooperate with ICE immigration enforcement measures has not changed.

PuenteTweet

Puente has a long criminal history in the U.S. after first illegally crossing the southern border sometime before 2011. Puente has two felony convictions for burglary in 2011 and 2017 and was convicted of forgery in 2012.

While crossing the Texas-Mexico border in Brownsville in December 2014, Puente was confronted by U.S. Border Patrol agents and claimed to be an American citizen, giving them a fraudulent birth certificate. Puente was already a convicted felon in the U.S.

Releasing the repeat offender and then blaming ICE displays a new low for a new Democrat administration in Chicago

The home of Obama really knows how to play into the Democrat model. The only problem may be that they are acting like Democrats too early in their administration. Treating your constituents like trash this early in the mayoral term may backfire.

Still, this does count as a loss for Americans and a win for illegals.

Illegal Alien, 31, Charged with Raping 14-Year-Old Girl in Idaho

Breitbart tells us how a 31-year-old illegal alien has come to be charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in Idaho.

An illegal alien has been charged with allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in Caldwell, Idaho, after providing her with alcohol, according to law enforcement officials.

JaimeGalvanJaime Galvan, a 31-year-old illegal alien with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer, was charged with raping the 14-year-old girl after the two met up and he served her two pre-mixed alcoholic cocktails, the Idaho Press reported.

The girl told police that Galvan told her to lay down after she became dizzy from the drinks. That’s when Galvan allegedly started touching the girl and raped her.

Galvan was asked to stop by the girl but continued, the girl told police. The girl said the rape occurred for about five minutes. Afterward, the girl said Galvan put her pants back on her and left the room.

Even Rocky Mountain Democrats seem to prefer pandering to illegal aliens rather than law-abiding citizens

Maybe they figure that the illegal alien felon community will be more likely to vote than the standard, law-abiding American. They could have a point there.

Nonetheless, this counts as a loss for the standard, law-abiding American.

Joe Biden Says ICE Shouldn’t Deport Drunk-Driving Illegal Aliens

The Daily Caller points out how Joe Biden says ICE shouldn’t deport drunk-driving illegal aliens.

Joe Biden Says ICE Shouldn’t Deport Drunk-Driving Illegal AliensFormer Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that he would not allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to deport illegal aliens who get caught drunk driving.

Biden said during a 2020 election forum with Vice News that if he wins the presidency he will issue an executive order that only allows ICE agents to deport individuals who have committed felonies — “and I don’t consider drunk driving a felony,” Biden clarified.

“I would hold ICE agents accountable if in fact they stepped over my executive orders, which is no arrest of any kind outside of the schools,” Biden said. “You know, look at the — one of the things that’s happening is, particularly for the latino and hispanic kids, is the incredible pressure on them in terms of their sense of security.”

Since Hunter Biden has a history as a drug fiend, maybe there is a family reason for Joe supporting drunk driving

While you can never tell what gaffe-a-minute Joe Biden will say, maybe there might be a little bit of reasoning behind this desire to exempt illegal aliens from deportation when they get caught driving drunk.

On the other hand, as a Christian, I can get behind a policy of forgiveness (as long as the administration also includes a policy of recompense for those harmed). However, without some type of recompense, there can be no forgiveness.

Nonetheless, this response accounts for the fifth point since I started counting after the third article. In all of the cases, the American citizens came out on the losing end while illegal aliens won.

New York Democrats Move to Register Illegal Aliens, Non-Citizens to Vote Unless They Opt Out

Breitbart points out how New York Democrats have moved to register illegal aliens and non-citizens to vote unless those people (who cannot legally vote) opt out.

New York State Senate Democrats have advanced a plan that will automatically register to vote all residents who apply for a driver’s licenses — which now includes non-citizens and illegal aliens — unless they “opt-out.”

NewYorkMapOn Thursday, Senate Senate Democrats passed legislation that will automatically register all residents who obtain driver’s licenses through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs). As of this year, illegal aliens are able to obtain driver’s licenses in New York, indicating that illegal aliens and non-citizens will only be excluded from the state voter rolls if they check the “opt-out” box before applying for a license.

New York Democrats have argued the law has safeguards in place to prevent non-citizens from registering to vote, including a provision that says DMVs shall not send voter registrations of ineligible applicants to the State Board of Elections:

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, no agency designated under this section shall transmit to the State Board of Elections any application for registration for a person that is, by virtue of data collected by the agency during the same application for services or change of address or name transaction, demonstrably ineligible to register or pre-register to vote by reason of age or not being a citizen of the United States. [Emphasis added]

Effectively, the New York law would place the burden to opt out of voter registration on non-citizens and illegal aliens, similar to that of California’s automatic voter registration law.

New York Democrats have claimed the legislation will “reduce the incidence of voter registration fraud and voting fraud,” and “prevent erroneous disfranchisement of eligible citizens, promote greater participation of eligible voters in elections…”

Americans lose when Democrats dilute the vote with illegal votes

When Democrats bring in illegal aliens to vote, it take away your vote. Therefore, once again, law-abiding Americans lose and illegal aliens win at the hands of Democrats.

Illegal Aliens Celebrate New Jersey Giving Them Driver’s Licenses

Breitbart shows a video of illegal aliens celebrating New Jersey giving them drivers licenses.

Illegal aliens in New Jersey celebrated and cheered this week after obtaining the right to a driver’s license following the passage of a law that will be signed by Gov. Phil Murphy (D).

NewJerseyMapOn Monday, following a statewide initiative by the open borders lobby, the New Jersey State House and State Senate passed a bill that will allow illegal aliens living in the sanctuary state to obtain driver’s licenses — similar to that of the laws in California and New York.

After the legislation’s passage, illegal aliens chanted “Sí se puede!” which translates to “Yes we can!” and posted hashtags online such as “#LicensesForAll!”

There are roughly half a million illegal aliens living in the state of New Jersey, and nearly 340,000 of those illegal aliens will be eligible for driver’s licenses within the next three years following Murphy’s signing of the law.

(Read more at Breitbart)

Because licenses can allow the illegal alien to acquire an undeserved voter registration and other benefits, this does not help the rest of us

The driver’s license acts as a gateway document. From that little document, access to our voter registration system, our transportation control system (which was meant to make our flights more secure after 9/11), and other systems comes open.

Again, Americans lose to the illegal aliens.

Maryland Sanctuary Counties to Free Accused Illegal Alien Child Rapists, Murderers, Child Abusers

Breitbart published a 24 November 2019 article pointing out how Maryland sanctuary counties were set to release accused illegal aliens accused of raping children, murdering, and abusing children.

Maryland sanctuary counties are expected to release into the United States six illegal aliens accused of child rape, assault, murder, and child abuse, federal immigration officials say.

Prince-George-CountyIllegalsThe sanctuary counties of Prince George County, Maryland, and Montgomery County, Maryland, may soon release six illegal aliens who are accused of a number of violent crimes against children and American citizens, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.

Jaycob Kidlat, an illegal alien, has been charged with five counts of sexual abuse of a minor, rape of a child under the age of 14-years-old, and third-degree sexual offense. ICE placed a detainer on him in June and it is unclear when he will be released, and if he will be freed rather than turned over to federal agents.

Likewise, illegal alien Alpha Ibrahimbah Mansaray has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless driving, as well as a series of drug crime charges. Mansaray was arrested in September and ICE has a detainer on him.

Illegal alien Luis Miguel Cabrera was arrested in September 2018 in one of the two sanctuary counties on charges of child abuse resulting in the death of the child, child sex abuse, and rape of a child under the age of 14. ICE has placed a detainer on him.

Illegal aliens Jaun Rivas-Montano and Manuel Carballos-Morales were both arrested this year on charges such as child sex abuse, child abuse, child molestation, and second-degree child abuse. Both have ICE detainers, but their release dates by the sanctuary counties are unknown.

Releasing rapists, murders, child abusers, and other felons into the community when the community doesn’t have to endure those criminals is a loss for the community

We know that the recidivism rate for many violent crimes (especially those centering on sex) remains high. Therefore, if criminals convicted of these crimes can be removed from the nation when their sentence has been completed, then the nation wins.

In this case, since these Maryland counties have chosen to protect felons rather than cooperate with the federal government, Americans lose and illegal aliens win.

Illegal Alien Accused of Physically Abusing, Raping His Step-Children

Breitbart points out how an illegal alien has been accused of raping his step children.

An illegal alien has been arrested after being on the run from law enforcement for alleged child abuse and child sex crime charges.

JoseBulmaroCruz-GuillenJose Bulmaro Cruz-Guillen, an illegal alien from Mexico, was arrested evading child abuse and child sex crime charges for incidents that occurred in 2014 and 2019, according to WBRC.com. The illegal alien had been twice arrested last year for crossing illegally through the United States-Mexico border.

According to law enforcement officials, Cruz-Guillen was investigated in 2014 for allegedly repeatedly punching his four-year-old stepson in the face and on his body.

Then, years later in 2019, Cruz-Guillen was indicted for allegedly sexually abusing his stepdaughter for years. The abuse allegedly involved first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, and sexual abuse of a child less than 12-years-old.

If the step-children were American, Americans lose

If the step-children were American, Americans lose. If the step-children had to be rescued by Americans, Americans lose. Finally, since the family has been immersed in the American community and has built relationships there, Americans lose by proxy.

11-Year-Old Allegedly Raped Repeatedly By Two Illegal Immigrants

The Daily Caller reports in a 14 August 2019 article that two illegal aliens raped a 11-year-old girl.

Two illegal immigrants have been charged with second degree rape of the same 11-year-old girl in Maryland.

Montgomery County Police arrested Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29, of Damascus, Maryland, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, of Gaithersburg, Maryland, for allegedly raping the same under-aged girl on multiple occasions, WJLA reports.
TwoMarylandRapistsTweet

The victim reported the instances of rape to a school social worker in July.

The victim was introduced to Palacios-Amaya in September 2018 through her older brother, according to WJLA. Palacios-Amaya then reportedly raped her several times over the following months, authorities say.

On one occasion, Palacios-Amaya used a cell phone to record sexual acts with the 11-year-old, according to court documents. Investigators reportedly found several images on Palacios-Amaya’s cell phone of himself and the victim.

Let me ask you. Who won in this contest between two illegal aliens and one 11-year-old girl

For my part, I would count this a loss for the little girl from Maryland.

Illinois Sanctuary County Frees 1K Criminal Illegal Aliens into U.S. in 2019

Breitbart reports that an Illinois sanctuary county freed 1,000 criminal illegal aliens into the community during 2019.

Cook-County-sanctuaryThe sanctuary county of Cook County, Illinois, released more than 1,000 criminal illegal aliens back into American communities in fiscal year 2019, federal data finds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials revealed this week that Cook County — which has shielded criminal illegal aliens from deportation since at least September 2011 — freed about 1,070 criminal illegal aliens back into neighboring communities in fiscal year 2019.

“The most concerning issue about working in an area that refuses to cooperate with ICE is not only that we do not know which criminal aliens are being released from custody, but the public doesn’t know either,” ICE official Henry Lucero said in a statement.

ICE officials detailed the cases of illegal aliens Rasheed Abass, a 50-year-old from South Africa, and Kennete Acevedo Ortiz, a 28-year-old from Nicaragua, who were free from Cook County custody despite ICE agents requesting they be turned over to them for arrest and deportation.

Abass was arrested in June 2019 and charged with indecent exposure. A month later, Abass was arrested for assault. After each arrest, ICE requested that Abass be turned over to them, but the requests were ignored and he was freed back in the community. His current location is unknown

In this article on the Cook County release of 1,000 illegal alien criminals into the community, several things can be learned

First, from the picture, it becomes evident that “illegal” is not a race. Therefore, being opposed to allowing illegal aliens access to our nation cannot be racist.

Second, because Cook County protected the illegals rather than reporting them to ICE, Democrats in Cook County must value illegal aliens over voters.

Boulder County Police ask public for help after releasing illegal alien charged with child sexual assault

The Daily Caller chronicles how Boulder County Colorado police force had to ask for help after releasing an illegal alien.

A Boulder County, Colorado, man charged with child sexual assault and wanted by local law enforcement is living in the U.S. illegally, the Daily Caller News Foundation exclusively confirmed.

The Lafayette Police Department and the Boulder County District Attorney’s office are asking the public for help in locating Francisco Barraza-Porras, a 47-year-old man who was released from custody, skipped his court date and is at large. ICE revealed to the DCNF that Barraza-Porras is an illegal alien, and Boulder County officials confirmed that they do not honor ICE administrative warrants.

The incident showcases the consequences when sanctuary jurisdictions fail to transfer custody of an illegal alien over to federal immigration authorities.

Barraza-Porras, who was last known to be living in Lafayette, Colorado, was arrested Jan. 2 and charged with multiple counts of sexual assault on a child. Instead of keeping him in custody or handing him over to ICE, local law enforcement released him back into the public with an order to appear to appear before court on March 2.

The first step to getting help is to ask for help; however, these police might have started by not releasing the criminal

When politically-correct police departments start by releasing criminals into the community rather than removing them from the nation, the nation loses.

San Francisco Ignored ICE And Released An Illegal Alien Who Had Been Arrested Seven Times

The Daily Caller explains how politically-correct San Francisco ignored ICE to release an illegal alien who had been arrested seven times.

San Francisco ignored multiple pleas by federal immigration authorities to transfer custody of a criminally convicted illegal alien, revealing how far city leaders will go to refuse cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations officers apprehended an unnamed illegal alien near a courthouse in San Francisco, California, on Tuesday, the agency revealed in a press release. The arrest marked the latest development in an ongoing saga between ICE and San Francisco officials regarding this particular alien, whom they refused to hand over despite his extensive criminal history.

The illegal alien, who was not identified by the agency, had been arrested by local law enforcement at least seven times in the past five years. ICE had lodged eight detainers with law enforcement following his arrests, but the agency said that because of “sanctuary laws,” he was able to be released back into the community each time.

“For many years, the city and county of San Francisco has refused to cooperate with ICE — much to their own detriment,” said ICE San Francisco Field Office Director David Jennings.

Eighth Illegal Alien Has Been Charged With A Sexual Crime In Montgomery County, Maryland

The Daily Caller points out how an eighth illegal alien has been charged with a sexual crime in Montgomery County, Maryland.

A Nigerian national has been charged in Montgomery County, Maryland, for rape, marking the eighth illegal alien to be charged with rape or another sexual crime in the county since July 25.

Oluwakayode AdebusuyiOluwakayode Adebusuyi, a 26-year-old man from Nigeria, allegedly raped an intoxicated woman in her car, according to ABC 7 News. Federal Immigration authorities confirmed that Adebusuyi is an illegal alien. He lives in Fairfax, Virginia, and is currently being held in detention on $250,000 bond.

A statement from federal immigration authorities confirmed that the Nigerian national is living in the U.S. unlawfully.

“On Sept. 1, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center on unlawfully present Nigerian national Oluwakayode Adewole Adebusuyi. Adebusuyi was arrested Aug. 28 on local charges, including rape,” a statement from ICE read.

This is not the first time Adebusuyi has been in trouble with the law for sexual crimes.

He was charged with a second degree assault, a fourth degree sex offense, and false imprisonment in August 2018, according to arrest documents obtained by ABC 7. However, prosecutors dropped the charges for unknown reasons. Adebusuyi has since worked as a ride-share driver.

To quote Yogi Berra, “It’s deja vous, all over again.”

While we don’t know that the woman who was drunk in the car was an American, we do know that her attacker was an illegal alien. So, in this case, we really cannot say that the American lost while the illegal alien was promoted by the Democrats.

Still, America operates on a somewhat civil society. This constituted an attack on civil society. Therefore, in truth, the score here for work-a-day Americans is 0 and the illegals and Democrats pull one over again.

New York City Law Allows Fines Up To $250,000 For Saying ‘Illegal Alien’

The Daily Caller reported on a New York City law that allows fines up to $250,000 for saying “illegal alien.”

New York City may fine individuals up to $250,000 if they use the term “illegal alien” in a derogatory way, according to an announcement from the city’s Commission on Human Rights this week.

“BREAKING: New York City has made it illegal to threaten to call ICE based on a discriminatory motive or to tell someone ‘go back to your country.’ Hate has no place here,” the City of New York tweeted Thursday.

NYC_CensorshipLawTweet

In addition, “derogatory use of the word ‘illegal alien’” can result in a fine.

“The guidance states that the use of the term ‘illegal alien,’ among others, when used with the intent to demean, humiliate, or harass a person, is illegal under the law.”

Democratic Mayor Bill De Blasio promote the new policy on Twitter and warned others that they will face “consequences” for insulting illegal immigrants.

So who wins when liberals curtial conservative American’s free speech rights?

That is a good question. In my eye, nobody wins — because this continual lack of civility from the left needs to be met with an equal force from the right.

As made evident by the incivility throughout the Kavanaugh hearings, the Trump impeachment, and all matters following those events, it seems no Democrat remaining in the House has any desire to fight fairly. For any Republican to not match that force with equal force will be a losing proposition.

So, again, Americans 0, Democrats and illegal aliens 1.

Massachusetts City Allowing Illegal Aliens To Drive Without A License

The Daily Caller points out how Cambridge, Massachusetts has been allowing illegal aliens to drive without licenses.

City councilors in Cambridge, Massachusetts, voted to prohibit police officers from arresting illegal aliens if they are caught operating a vehicle without a license.

Under a newly passed city ordinance in Cambridge, residents are still legally required to carry a driver’s license if they are operating a vehicle, but local law enforcement has been ordered not to arrest illegal aliens caught driving without identification, Boston 25 News first reported.

The city ordinance, ordained Feb. 10, marks what appears to be the most lenient policy for undocumented immigrants and roadway rules.

The city councillors who passed the ordinance say it’s necessary given increased immigration enforcement emanating from the White House.

“We need to protect our community members from a federal government that’s out of control,” Cambridge City Councilor Quinton Zondervan said of the rule. “There are no other reasons for the police to arrest someone, give them a court summons instead which keeps them out of the clutches of the Trump administration.”

(Read more at the Daily Caller)

While this presents a better option than providing illegal aliens with licenses, it only does so by the breadth of a hair

Cambridge may not be supplying illegals with drivers’ licenses (and thereby providing them access to various systems, as noted above). However, by allowing them to drive without licenses, they are likely taking any citizen unlucky enough to be involved in an accident with an illegal (that is, they are taking a bit of their car, their money, and their raised auto insurance rates).

So, Americans lose at the hands of illegals and Democrats again.

AOC wants illegals answering census

Townhall reports that AOC wants illegal aliens to be answering the census now that the courts have ruled that the census cannot ask about citizenship.

AOC_isAnIdiotTwoEveryone saw this coming. Democrats fought tooth and nail to keep census forms from inquiring about an individual’s citizenship status. They won, so now people like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are urging illegal aliens to fill out census forms so Democrats like herself can keep their bogus congressional districts. According to reports, it’s likely that New York state will lose a congressional seat as a result of the 2020 Census. State Democrats, who would be tasked with redrawing New York’s congressional districts, are reportedly salivating at the opportunity to cut AOC’s seat since the progressive congresswoman is often out of step with Democrats in the state.

On NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Thursday, AOC said it was important for everyone in America, including illegal aliens, to fill out census forms for the purpose of congressional representation and funding for federal programs.

“We’re all going to get mailed a prompt to fill out the census in the next two weeks or so, and so what I think is really important is that we all fill this out,” AOC lectured the audience. “It happens once every ten years. Every single person, no matter your documentation status, no matter your housing status, income, etc., is to be counted, and it determines how much our schools are going to get funded, how much infrastructure gets invested, and of course how many members of Congress each community gets.”

AOC went on to say that in some parts of New York City the self-reporting is only half of what she and her progressive allies think it should be.

In this last case, AOC wants the illegals in her district to be counted

By having the illegals in her district counted, they can receive the benefits due to Americans.

Eight stories on illegal aliens


  1. California: Twice-Deported Illegal Alien Arrested for Triple Homicide

Breitbart reports that a twice-deported illegal alien has been arrested for a triple murder in California.

A twice-deported illegal alien, accused of murdering three men in the sanctuary state of California, has been arrested by law enforcement officials.

JoseJose Luis Torres Garcia, a 33-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was identified this week by Riverside County Sheriff’s Office in Southern California for allegedly murdering three men execution-style, as Breitbart News reported. The victims include 50-year-old Jaime Covarrubias Espindola, 38-year-old Jose Maria Aguilar-Espejel, and 28-year-old Rodrigo Aguilar-Esepjel.

Garcia had been on the run, fleeing to Cheyenne, Wyoming, but was arrested by local authorities there when he was pulled over for a traffic stop. During his arrest, police found 15 pounds of marijuana in his vehicle.

Had the sanctuary state of California cooperated with ICE, the three victims would be alive

These three individuals (Jaime Espindola, Jose Maria Aguilar0Espejel, and Rodrigo Esepjel) might have been law-abiding Americans. However, if they were instead illegal aliens (a crime that does not carry a death penalty — unless you are attempting to break into North Korea), they should have been doubly protected in a “sanctuary city.”

Nonetheless, due to liberals ignoring the enforcement of law against those who would break our immigration laws, now three people are dead.

  1. Judge stabbed by illegal alien who had been released three times

Townhall relates the tale of a stabbing by an illegal alien who had been released three times.

Judge David Blackett

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) logged three immigration detainer requests for an illegal alien accused of repeatedly stabbing Adams County Magistrate David Blackett in Denver last year, according to reports. Jose Armenta-Vazquez, 39, is accused of stabbing the judge in the magistrate’s east Denver home back in August.

One month before the nearly-fatal stabbing, Armenta-Vazquez was released by the Denver Sheriff’s Department for the third time despite active immigration detainers logged against him in each case. According to Breitbart News, the illegal alien has been arrested 36 times on a wide range of charges, including child abuse, car theft, assault and traffic violations. ICE announced the Mexican citizen was first ordered to be removed from the United States back in Mar. 1999.

It’s not clear when Vazquez became a suspect in the stabbing of the judge, but the criminal alien was again arrested in October, after the judge’s stabbing, and released the same month in defiance of a fourth immigration detainer logged by the agency. Vazquez was again apprehended in December on suspicion of menacing with a deadly weapon related to a separate incident. He was finally charged for the Blackett attack on Jan. 15, 2020, according to CBS4 News in Denver.

Considering the liberality of Colorado, this likely will not be the last illegal alien attack

With the sanctuary city status of Aurora and Denver along with 13 Colorado countied, there are ample chances for stabbings, drunk driving events, rapes, murders, and other crimes that should never have a chance to happen.

  1. Repeat drunk driving illegal alien released in Illinois

Townhall comments on the serial drunk-driving illegal alien who was released in Illinois.

Yoni Cruz-LopezGuatemalan citizen Yoni Cruz-Lopez may only be 24 years old, but he’s already racked up three DUI convictions over the past five years in a country that he’s not even supposed to be in. Cruz-Lopez was under the legal drinking age when he picked up at least one of those convictions. Democrats in Illinois thought it was more important for the illegal alien to get back on the road again rather than to turn the dangerous criminal alien over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. In 2017, a federal immigration judge ordered Cruz-Lopez to be removed from the United States after he failed to show up at his immigration hearing, as many immigrants are wont to do.

ICE filed a detainer with the Illinois Department of Corrections in Jan. 2019, after the illegal immigrant racked up a felony DUI conviction earlier that year. But on Wednesday, Illinois authorities released the drunk-driving alien back into the community. Thankfully, before Cruz-Lopez could get behind the wheel of a car again, ICE agents sprang into action and arrested the felon at Union Station in Chicago that same day.

“I want the public to know that this is an example of the type of dangerous person sanctuary policies protect – an aggravated felon,” Robert Guadian, field office director for ERO Chicago, said in a statement. “This targeted enforcement action was made in one of the country’s busiest transit terminals, possibly putting commuters and travelers at risk. This arrest should have been made in the secure confines of a jail.”

Has Mothers Against Drunk Drivers been disbanded?

Everyone has a mother. Therefore, the first reaction of journalists for atrocities like this was formerly to shove a microphone in front of first a grieving mother and then a representative of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers.

Now, since the main stream media is hip deep in supporting the cause of “immigrants” (of course, this is a code word for those who break our laws to enter the nation), these “journalists” hardly have time to put a report on the last 15 seconds of the 10 o’clock news (or the online version of the paper).

  1. FAIR: ‘No constituency’ in U.S. for criminal aliens

OneNewsNow reports the words of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) who states that there is no constituency in the United States for criminal aliens.

An immigration reform organization deems it “unforgiveable” that “sanctuary jurisdictions” continue to protect illegal alien criminals who prey on innocent members of the community.

During his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Trump touted the progress his administration has made in regaining control of the southern border through the exercise of executive authority. But he lambasted the Democratic-controlled Congress for its refusal to carry out its responsibility to ensure long-lasting solutions to illegal immigration, including funding a border wall and closing loopholes that have led to large-scale asylum abuse.

Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform isn’t optimistic anything will get done between now and the beginning of next year.

“Congress is just too polarized at this point,” he explains. “But the president did lay out an agenda that most Americans probably would share. They believe that these criminal aliens should not be protected by local governments and then put back out on the streets to prey on people again. There is no constituency in this country for criminal aliens.”

And Mehlman says the presence of Jody Jones in the House chamber, whose brother was murdered by an illegal alien, was a poignant reminder to Congress, state and local officials, and the American people of the devastating human cost of “sanctuary” policies.

“Rocky Jones, in their opinion, was just collateral damage in their political effort to basically obliterate U.S. immigration laws and the enforcement of them,” Mehlman laments. “And unfortunately, that is not a unique story. That’s been happening for a long time all across the country. That is simply unforgiveable.”

Legally, there is no leg to stand on when arguing against the FAIR stance

However, in the court of public opinion, the rule of law has little sway. Try arguing this logical stance against a Democrat who has been carrying the emotional water for the local lackie of leftie policy (all built on that lackie’s rhetoric, never mind their real voting record).

In the event that you take on such an argument, you might find yourself arguing against generalities and vague accusations. For example, you might hear:

So, if you do find yourself in such a debate, just be aware of this: in my experience, I have found that I was debating the sub-conscience and their drive to dominate an unknown force. You cannot win against this lack of logic.

  1. Granddaughter of 92-year-old killed by illegal alien speaks out

Townhall quotes the granddaughter of the 92-year-old who had been killed by an illegal alien.

While addressing members of the National Border Patrol Council on Friday, President Trump invited on stage the granddaughter of an elderly New York woman who was raped and slain last month by, allegedly, a known criminal alien recently released into the community under New York’s dangerous sanctuary city policies.

reeaz-khanIn January, New York City police arrested a 21-year-old illegal immigrant from Guyana, Reeaz Khan, for the murder and sexual assault of Maria Fuertes, a 92-year-old grandmother living in Queens. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have blamed NYC’s sanctuary city laws for releasing the known criminal alien back into the community following Khan’s previous arrest for assault and criminal possession of a weapon in Nov. 2019. The elderly Fuertes was found unconscious, her body partially exposed, lying behind a vehicle close to her home just after midnight on Jan. 6. Ms. Fuertes later died from her injuries.

Towards the end of his address on Friday, President Trump invited Ms. Fuertes’ granddaughter, Daria Ortiz, to say a few words about her grandmother, described as a beloved figure in her local community.

“I’d like to take this moment to say my grandmother was very generous and educated,” Ortiz began. “She was a woman who dedicated her time to taking care of others. Before coming to America, she worked as a secretary for the president of her native country, the Dominican Republic. She’s a shining example of when people come legally to this country, work hard, and do the right thing and are law-abiding citizens. My grandmother raised her children and her grandchildren while working hard to give us a future. ”

Still, someone will come to defend this grandmother rapist

Someone outside of our legal system will stand on the streets and deem anyone who would condemn Reeaz Khan as an Islamophobe.

  1. Illegal Alien Released by Chicago Authorities Who Ignored ICE, Went on to Rape 3-Year-Old in a McDonald’s Bathroom

Wayne Dupree shares the story of an illegal alien released by Chicago Democrats.

Every single Chicago “authority” involved in the release of this animal should be removed from office and arrested for rape. Because they are as much to blame as the monster who did this.

Here is Chicago’s mayor refusing to cooperate with ICE. She should be removed and arrested. She is to blame for that 3-year-old’s rape.

Again, every one of these officials must be fired and arrested. Every last one.

A Mexican immigrant who was released by Chicago authorities despite ICE telling them not to ‘went on to rape a three-year-old girl in a McDonald’s bathroom as she cried ”daddy, daddy”.’

Christopher PuenteChristopher Puente, 34, is accused of sexually assaulting the girl at the restaurant on 600 N. Clark St. in the River North area of the city at around 8am on February 19.

The alleged attack happened while the girl’s father was in another stall with her brother, who had had an accident in the restaurant.

However ICE had requested that police continue detaining the previously deported felon – who had convictions for forced-entry burglary and forgery.

Despite his background, Chicago declined ICE’s June 2019 request to detain Puente.

ICE have said this is an increasingly common battle, with the agency reporting that Cook County, which includes Chicago, denied more than 1,000 detainer requests in 2019 alone.

Puente’s bond hearing in Cook County heard the little girl’s mouth was covered as she began whimpering ‘daddy, daddy’ – before her father pulled her legs from under the door to get her to safety.

The horrific ordeal was relayed in court where the accused rapist appeared for the first time.

Robert Guadian, field office director of Chicago Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), blamed ‘irresponsible lawmaking’ for Puentes release.

‘How many more victims must there be before lawmakers realize that sanctuary policies do not protect the innocent?’ Guadian said.

‘Puente should have been in ICE custody last year and removed to his home country. Instead, irresponsible lawmaking allowed him to walk free and prey on our most vulnerable,’ he told Fox News.  [Daily Mail]

We’re not doing enough to stop this before it happens. We’re “reacting” to these crimes with outrage, but what we should be doing is shutting these sanctuary policies down by demanding that these officials be held responsible.

Just as with the case of Reeaz Khan, someone will defend Christopher Puente

Someone will stand outside the court (or, in the court of public opinion) tell those who object to the rape of 3-year-olds that we are anti-immigrant or anti-Hispanic or some other liberal sob line. You can bank on it.

  1. Undocumented Population Up In Texas, Despite Nationwide Decline

According to Houston Public Media, the illegal alien population in Texas has risen while the nationwide population has declined.

Texas’ undocumented immigrant population grew 5% over the last seven years, according to information provided by the Center for Migration Studies.

Nationwide, however, the undocumented population decreased by 9%, according to a new report by the center.

Though the state’s undocumented population now includes 75,000 fewer Mexicans, more people are coming from countries like El Salvador, Honduras and India.

“The entire undocumented population living in Texas, including Mexico and every other country, actually increased by 95,000,” said Center for Migration Studies researcher Bob Warren.

undoc-population

The report also showed that nationwide 62% of undocumented immigrants came to the U.S. by overstaying their visa.

Researcher Bob Warren said that’s why solutions to illegal immigration should address both the border and visa overstays.

While this article dates to 2019, most main stream outlets gave it no play

Because the article above goes against the Democrat narrative that says nothing has changed with the invasion occurring through our Southern border, it got no play through the main stream media. Therefore, most Democrats will react with skepticism when confronted with the truth.

  1. Is Houston a sanctuary for illegal immigrants?

Back as far as 2007, the Houston Chronicle seemed to be pointing torward current trends where Sheriff Gonzalez cut ties with ICE, Mayor Turner announced Houston to be a “welcoming city,” and Police Chief Art Acevedo complained loudly against Texas’ law governing sanctuary governments. Nonetheless, against all reason, the Houston Chronicle suggested the following:

Earlier this month, O’Reilly blamed White and Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt for the actions of Pasadena resident Joe Horn, who shot to death two illegal immigrants from Colombia who had burglarized his neighbor’s home.

“These two illegal aliens are dead because of Houston’s sanctuary city policies,” O’Reilly said during an interview segment on his cable TV show. “That’s why they’re dead.”

White couldn’t disagree more.

“It’s a blatant untruth that Houston is a sanctuary city,” White said in an interview last week.

Hurtt agreed, blaming O’Reilly’s “erroneous reporting” for the sanctuary controversy. Still, the debate shows no signs of diminishing locally or nationally. Even the definition of what constitutes a sanctuary city is hotly contested.

Recently, the term has become a kind of political hand grenade, lobbed around in the GOP presidential debates to make opponents appear soft on illegal immigration. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has repeatedly been accused by his opponents of running New York as a sanctuary city.

(Read more blather at the Houston Chronicle)

That was an almost prophetic article from 2007

Considering that Texas now has a law governing sanctuary governments within Texas (where officials can sent to jail if illegals are released to cause harm to citizens and where funds can be withheld to governments that do not comply), this article almost seems prophetic

  • In the way liberals then wanted to blame the conservative for defending himself,
  • In the way liberals would latch on to a then-undefined term and use it as if it held an understood meaning,
  • In the way that the liberal appealed to emotion (even going so far as to make an unsupported suggestion that “Giuliani has repeatedly been accused by his opponents of running New York as a sanctuary city”) while the conservative appealed to logic

It was for the abuses suffered at the hands of both illegals and libersls — along with these types of arguments — that the Texas law on sanctuary governments was signed into  law on Sunday, 7 May 2017.

Five stories involving sanctuary cities, sanctuary counties, illegal aliens, and the border


  1. Trump Admin Can Withhold Funds From Sanctuary Cities, Appeals Court Finds

The Daily Caller reports on the recent ruling by an appeals court.

trumpWinningThe 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the White House can withhold funds from sanctuary cities, delivering a victory for President Donald Trump’s fight with jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

The Trump administration is legally allowed to withhold millions of dollars in federal law enforcement grants from states and other localities that refuse to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled Wednesday. The court’s 77-page ruling was provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The ruling overturns a lower court’s decision that ordered the Trump administration to release the funds to New York City and other states that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Wednesday’s court ruling dates back to a dispute that began in 2017, after the Justice Department moved to withhold law enforcement grants from sanctuary cities and states that don’t allow ICE officials access to their jails or notify them when an illegal alien is set to be released from their custody. In response to this action, New York City and seven states — Connecticut, New York, Washington, New Jersey, Virginia, Massachusetts and Rhode Island — issued a lawsuit.

The above headline and article should make the following article very interesting for Houstonians

Since Mayor Turner has deemed Houston to be a “welcoming city,” Harris county Sheriff Gonzales stopped cooperating with ICE, and now Harris county judge Hidalgo has set up a fund to defend illegals (refer to the following article), the President might apply this power found by this appeals court to Houston and Harris county. The Democrats certainly think that they have too much money if they are spending our money on defense funds like this.

  1. Harris county sets up defense fund for illegal aliens

The Houston Chronicle reports in a 26 February 2020 article that Lina Hidalgo has worked to use county taxpayer funds to set up a defense fund for illegal aliens. This comes to us with a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo show on AM700 KSEV.

LinaHidalgoHarris County on Tuesday approved a taxpayer-funded legal services program for immigrants, including those in the country illegally who face deportation, at the request of County Judge Lina Hidalgo.

Commissioners Court voted along party lines, with the two Republican members opposed, to become the first county in Texas to enact such a program.

The Houston area was the largest in the country with no taxpayer support of deportation defense. In Texas, the cities of Dallas, Austin and San Antonio have similar programs.

“We’re very excited to propose a measure that’s going to inject a measure of fairness into our justice system,” Hidalgo said before the vote. “I’ve seen the impact of a federal immigration system that is so broken and convoluted that folks are desperate to have an answer to their case.”

The Republicans —Jack Cagle and Steve Radack —said the county should not wade into a federal immigration issue.

Hidalgo’s resolution directs the Community Services Department to “design, administer funds for, and oversee an immigrant legal services program for county residents, subject to final approval by Commissioners Court.”

Hidalgo’s office estimated the program would cost $500,000 the first year and would require an additional employee to administer it. She said the county would explore partnerships with nonprofits that could help defray some costs to taxpayers.

The county judge said public support of immigrant legal services in other places has been effective in reducing unnecessary detentions and deportations and allowing immigrants to remain in the country legally. Hidalgo said last year she visited a Texas immigrant detention center where men told her they were despondent because their cases had no end in sight. Houston immigration courts have some of the highest backlogs in the country, with nearly 52,000 cases pending.

Legal representation is crucial for defendants to receive due process, Hidalgo said, adding that children sometimes are forced to represent themselves in immigration cases. Unlike in the criminal justice system, immigrants facing deportation are not provided attorneys by the federal government if they cannot afford them.

The best way to fight this comes via the ballot box

Since early voting for Texas currently is under way, we should all make our voices known to the numb skulls in office.

  1. Former Texas police chief caught smuggling illegal aliens

San Antonio local affiliate KSAT reports that a former Texas police chief has been caught smuggling illegal aliens into the country.

BorderPatrolThe former interim police chief of Dilley was arrested after admitting to transporting undocumented people across a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint in Laredo, according to a criminal complaint obtained by KSAT and local media reports.

Rausel Andrei Fonseca-Saldivar was driving a blue big rig hauling a trailer before he was inspected at the Laredo North Border Checkpoint around 8:40 p.m. on Feb. 7, the affidavit states.

When the U.S. Border Patrol agent asked Fonseca-Saldivar if there were any other occupants in the tractor, he responded, “I’m the only person here,” according to the criminal complaint.

Fonseca-Saldivar consented to a search of the cabin of the tractor, and the agent’s partner found three people, who later admitted to being in the United States without authorization, the criminal complaint states.

The agent who filed the complaint said the individuals were found under a blanket behind the driver’s seat in a hidden compartment.

The three people and Fonseca-Saldivar were arrested by the agents and taken into Border Patrol custody for further investigation. Fonseca-Saldivar faces charges related to smuggling undocumented people into the U.S.

Does this mean that this former top cop will see years of solitary confinement?

Will this cause this man to be held in solitary confinement for the full time of his punishment? Or, if the guy is a Democrat, will it mean that he does not get any jail time for his law breaking (like Hillary)?

  1. Customs & Border Patrol to deploy tactical agents to sanctuary cities

One America News Network reported that the CBP will deploy tactical agents to sanctuary cities.

The feud between the Trump administration and sanctuary cities is escalating as ICE looks to increase enforcement across the U.S. Immigration enforcement officials announced Friday that Customs and Border Protection is deploying 100 tactical officers to sanctuary cities across the country.

The deployment comes amid a fight between Democrat leadership and federal agencies over cooperation with immigration officials. Specifically, this includes a lack of coordination and communication over information sharing and detaining immigrants when requested by federal agencies.

This may create an interesting situation also, since it may result in actual arrests

Let’s hope that the ICE agents are allowed to do their job unhindered.

  1. Another Armed Human Smuggler Arrested in Texas near Border

Breitbart reports in a 15 February 2020 article about an armed smuggler of humans and his arrest in Texas.

Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended an allegedly armed human smuggler during a human smuggling attempt. Del Rio Sector agents have observed an increasing trend in armed human smugglers.

Agents assigned to the Brackettville Border Patrol Station observed a 2019 Nissan SUV approaching the immigration checkpoint for inspection on February 12. The agents referred the driver to a secondary inspection station for further questioning.

During the immigration inspection, agents determined the five passengers in the vehicle were illegal aliens, according to information provided to Breitbart Texas by Del Rio Sector officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The agent determined the five migrants came to the U.S. from Ecuador.

Agents arrested the driver, a 21-year-old U.S. citizen for attempting to smuggle five illegal aliens further into the U.S. interior, officials stated. Agents carried out a search of the vehicle and found a 9mm Taurus pistol hidden under the driver’s seat.

“Our agents are encountering armed smugglers now more than ever before,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said in a written statement, “These are dangerous criminals who continue to show little regard for human life.”

Just eight stories on illegal aliens


  1. Al-Qaeda jihadis caught trying to enter U.S. with fake Colombian passports

Breitbart reports in a 23 January 2020 article that three Al-Qaeda jihadis have been caught trying to enter U.S. with Colombian passports faked by Venezuela.

Syria-al-qaeda-linked-Nusra-Front

American authorities identified and apprehended three Syrian nationals accused of belonging to al-Qaeda in Dallas, Texas, from Colombia, the Colombian news agency RCN reported on Thursday, publishing images of the three individuals’ fake passports.

According to RCN, American law enforcement identified the three individuals as Al Raefee, Tuameh Tuameh, and Al Harari Al Harari. The three are believed to be in U.S. custody, soon to be charged with membership in a terrorist organization. The men appear to have entered Colombia through Venezuela, where they acquired Colombian residency paperwork, a government identification card, and a Colombian passport through an illegal documentation network.

Journalist Luis Carlos Vélez published images of the counterfeit passports on Twitter, noting that the men appeared to have crossed into Colombia through the La Guajira border crossing with Venezuela. Reports have not yet specified how the Syrians entered Venezuela or how long they had spent in the country after leaving Syria. Vélez reportedly stated that the U.S. embassy identified them as al-Qaeda terrorists when they attempted to procure U.S. visas, which does not align with the RCN report that police arrested them in Dallas. The RCN report does not note if Dallas authorities arrested them at the airport, which would suggest the men did receive U.S. visas and got onboard a flight to the country, or if they arrived by other means.

American authorities reportedly suspected criminal activity after inspecting the passports and finding several irregularities. The identification numbers on all three passports, RCN noted, did not match their birthdates. Colombian passports assign numbers to citizens based on when they were born. Although the youngest of the three men is 45 years old according to his passport, the identification number on his passport corresponded to a much more recently born person, at most 25 years old.

If this hasn’t hit the rotation of your local nightly news, ask them why.

I have observed that the local news certainly has time to air the latest “blockbuster” video allegation against the president. They have time to produce op-ed pieces memorializing celebrities who have passed. Why don’t they have time to point out how three Syrians were caught with fake Colombian passports made in Venezuela?

Does the above story shatter their myth of the peaceful illegal alien who just comes to get work? Or does it do too much to bolster President Trump’s call for a border wall?

  1. In a similar story, Honduras arrests U.S.-bound Iranians

Judicial Watch reports in a 17 January 2020 article that four Iranians were arrested in an Honduran caravan of hundreds.

As hundreds join a new U.S.-bound caravan in Honduras, authorities in the crime-infested Central American nation reveal that four Iranians were recently arrested there. Like thousands of illegal immigrants from around the world, the Iranians entered Honduras illegally and were heading north to the United States, according to a Honduran newspaper article that attributes the information to the president, Juan Orlando Hernández. The Iranians were transported to the capital, Tegucigalpa, and officials have launched an investigation.

Four Iranian terrorists in transit to US held in Honduras

Earlier this week Judicial Watch reported on a U.S. alert warning Mexico of armed Iranians planning to enter the country through the southern border, but it’s not clear if the cases are related and calls to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) went unanswered. The bulletin, issued by the Border Patrol’s regional intelligence operation center in Arizona, said that a Guatemalan national may try to smuggle five Middle Easterners—including a suicide bomber—into the U.S. through Mexico. The smuggler and four other men and a woman transited through Guatemala and Belize before reaching Veracruz, Mexico, according to the bulletin. The Guatemalan, whose name is redacted in the government document, was deported from California a year ago. U.S. authorities received the threat after picking up recordings distributed via social media, according to a Spanish-language news story published by a Latin American outlet.

The U.S. alert didn’t faze a busy Mexican border city’s police chief, who confirms the region is full of Middle Easterners, Africans and Asians trekking north. In a Latin American news report published shortly after the U.S. issued the bulletin, Mexicali Police Chief María Elena Andrade Ramírez matter-of-factly said the arrival of people from the Middle East, Africa and Asia as well as the rest of the Americas is “normal” in her California border city of about a million residents. In a separate article published in a Mexicali paper, authorities downplayed the situation by assuring citizens that the arrival of people from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the rest of the Americas is “something normal.”

They don’t magically land in Mexico. Central America has long been a popular route for illegal immigrants from terrorist nations who want to reach the U.S. There’s no doubt many will infiltrate the new caravan heading to the Mexican border from the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula. President Hernández says some 70,000 immigrants from these countries cross through Honduras annually, even without an organized caravan. When the first Central American caravan launched from Honduras in the fall of 2018, then Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales confirmed that nearly 100 ISIS terrorists had been apprehended in Guatemala. Like its Honduran neighbor, Guatemala too is a major smuggling corridor for foreigners from African and Asian countries making their way into the U.S. In 2017, Guatemala’s largest paper, Prensa Libra, published an in-depth piece on the inner workings of an international human smuggling network that moves migrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh to the U.S.

One story is a point. Two draws a line.

If this type of story only happened once, it would make a point. However, it has happened twice. Americans need to stand with our president in the construction of a wall to protect our citizens from foreign threats.

  1. ICE leader blames ‘sanctuary’ policies for NYC killing

Breitbart reports in a 17 January 2020 article how the New York ICE office blames sanctuary city policies for the killing of the 92-year-old woman.

immigration-sanctuary-cities

The country’s top immigration official blamed the “sanctuary policies” of New York City on Friday for the sexual assault and killing of a 92-year-old woman, while the mayor’s office decried such rhetoric as “fear, hate and attempts to divide.”

Matthew Albence, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said at a news conference Friday that the slaying could have been prevented if city officials had complied with a federal request to turn over the assailant, a Guyanese national, for deportation.

“It’s unbelievable that I have to come here and plead with the city of New York to cooperate with us to help keep this city safe,” Albence said.

“Make no mistake,” he added. “It is this city’s sanctuary policies that are the sole reason this criminal was allowed to roam the streets freely and end an innocent woman’s life.

This death (and many like it) need to be laid at the feet of inactive politicians

Nancy Pelosi (with her visions of “sparks of Divinity”) needs to recognize that we have enough depravity within the nation without importing and retaining criminals. Therefore, when a foreign national breaks our laws, they need to be shown the door.

  1. NYPD union leader sides with ICE against de Blasio over ‘sanctuary’-tied murder: ‘He owns this’

Fox News reports in a 17 January 2020 article how a NYPD union leader sided with ICE against Democrat Mayor de Blasio.

A top New York Police Department union official on Friday called on Mayor Bill de Blasio to “own” the consequences of the city’s sanctuary policies — while insisting officers want to be allowed to work with federal immigration enforcement — after an illegal immigrant who was freed in November is alleged to have sexually assaulted and murdered a 92-year-old woman.

“The mayor can say what he wants to say — he owns this,” Sergeants Benevolent Association Vice President Vincent Vallelong told reporters. “He should step up and say these are his policies, he owns it.”

The remarks came at a press conference led by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Matthew Albence in New York, days after the deadly consequences of the city’s policy again made headlines due to the murder this month of 92-year-old Maria Fuertes.

Reeaz Khan

Reeaz Khan, an illegal Guyanese immigrant, is accused of attacking Fuertes as she walked home on Jan. 6. Fuertes was reportedly found at 2 a.m. in 32-degree weather and near death on a sidewalk with her clothes pulled above her waist. She was taken to a hospital, where she died from injuries that included a broken spine, according to The New York Post. The Post cited law enforcement sources who said she had been sexually assaulted and strangled.

ICE revealed this week that it had issued a detainer — a request that ICE be alerted of an illegal immigrant’s release from custody so that they can be transferred into ICE custody and go through deportation procedures — in November for Khan.

Democrats own this

In a city where Republicans do not hold any significant sway, nobody can attribute the murder of a 92-year-old woman by an illegal alien to a conservative. Therefore, this is nothing but a liberal Democrat issue.

  1. New York Freed 7.5K Criminal Illegal Aliens into U.S. in 2019, Including Convicted Murderers, Sex Abusers

Breitbart reported in a 17 January 2020 article that 7,500 illegal alien criminals were released into the US by New York.

The sanctuary state of New York released more than 7,500 criminal illegal aliens back into communities last year, including convicted murderers and sexual abusers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials confirmed Friday.

During a press conference, Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence revealed that in 2019, law enforcement officers in New York released roughly 7,516 criminal illegal aliens back into communities despite criminal convictions and charges against them.

criminal-illegal-aliens

In all of those cases, ICE agents asked that these criminal illegal aliens be turned over to them for arrest and deportation. Due to the state’s sanctuary policy, though, all were released. Albence said New York only turned over to ICE about ten criminal illegal aliens last year.

Altogether, these more than 7,500 criminal illegal aliens released back into New York communities had a total of 17,873 criminal convictions and 6,500 criminal charges against them. This includes criminal illegal aliens who have been convicted or charged with:

  • 200 homicides
  • More than 1,000 sexual offenses
  • More than 500 robberies
  • More than 3,500 assaults
  • More than 1,500 DUIs
  • More than 1,000 weapons violations

“The only immigrants protected by such policies are those committing violent and dangerous offenses, often in the same communities that these politicians are purporting to protect,” Albence said during the press conference.

As a second point against the liberals, this rate of releasing criminals can have no good results

We need to remember this when more murders, more rapes, more robberies, and other crimes occur at the hands of these illegals. However, if the media does not separate the murders by illegals from the murders committed by our populace, where will we be? We need to depend more on alternative media (One America News Network, Newsmax, etc).

  1. Harris County Releases Illegal Immigrant DWI Suspect Slated for Deportation to Honduras

According to The Texan reported in a 9 January 2020 article that Harris County released an illegal alien DWI suspect slated for deportation.

At the end of December, the Harris County jail released on bond a DWI suspect who had been ordered deported by a federal immigration judge in 2019.

According to a press release from the Harris County Constable Precinct 4 office, one Emilio Duarte was arrested on December 28, 2019 and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Failure to Stop and Give Information.

The constable’s press release said that Duarte was booked into the Harris County Jail and then released on bond out of County Court 15.

The Texan requested additional information about the suspect from both the Harris County Sheriff’s Office as well as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

A media spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to The Texan via email that ICE is notified by HCSO when suspects are booked, but said all other information requests would need to go through ICE. He did not address questions regarding the suspect’s legal status or provide any additional information.

With the election of a slate of Democrats, both Harris County and Houston have fallen victim to liberal policies

Recently, both Harris County and Houston flipped to primarily Democrat. As a result, the area has experienced an inordinate issue with social justice judges letting felons go to commit new crimes.

  1. ICE nabs dozens of illegal immigrants with record of child sex offenses, as director slams sanctuary cities

Fox News points out in an 26 September 2019 article how ICE nabbed dozens of illegal aliens with records of child sex violations.

ICE nabs

Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Matthew Albence on Thursday revealed a recent ICE operation nabbed dozens of illegal immigrants with a record of child sex offenses, as he railed against the dangers of “sanctuary cities” he said put public safety at risk.

“It’s time to publicly call out those who have put politics over public safety, those who make our communities less secure, who create safe havens in which criminal aliens and gangs are allowed to flourish and can victimize innocent people with impunity,” he said in a White House briefing, surrounded by sheriffs and other law enforcement officials.

The briefing was part of a coordinated push by the Trump administration to again highlight the dangers of “sanctuary” jurisdictions that refuse to comply with detainers from immigration enforcement authorities. Senior ICE officials will be holding briefings across the country to warn of the dangers of sanctuary policies.

Those detainers request that local law enforcement notify immigration authorities when an illegal immigrant who has been arrested is due to be released from jail, so that they can be picked up by ICE and placed in deportation proceedings. Albence said that last year they deported more than 145,000 criminal illegal immigrants, including 10,000 gang members, and that about 70 percent of arrests ICE conducts occur via a detainer from a local or state jail or prison.

But with anti-ICE and open-border sentiments taking a growing hold among Democratic lawmakers and left-wing activists, a number of cities and states — including New Jersey, California, Chicago and New York City — have implemented sanctuary policies and refused to cooperate with law enforcement.

Albence pointed to a national ICE operation this week in which officers made 1,300 arrests. He said that of those, officers arrested nearly 200 who could have been arrested in jail if detainers had been honored.

Of all of these stories, this is the one good point

Thank God for the work of the agents of ICE who removed those with child sex offenses from our communities.

  1. Sanctuary city pays illegal alien arrested for DUI cash settlement over immigration hold

With a hat-tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, I found that Judicial Watch reported in a 24 January 2020 article that one sanctuary city paid an illegal alien (arrested for DUI) a cash settlement over immigration hold.

In the latest example of sanctuary madness, a U.S. city is awarding an illegal immigrant with a cash settlement because police detained him for federal authorities after being arrested for driving under the influence. The 29-year-old perpetrator, Edgar Torres Gutierrez, eventually pled guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving and his pro bono attorneys from a nearby public university sued the city for violating his Constitutional rights as well as a statewide sanctuary law. Under the agreement, Gutierrez will receive $18,750 from taxpayers in the California coastal municipality where he lives illegally. Local police officers will also be forced to watch a training video involving sanctuary measures for the next two years.

Even for a famously liberal state this seems to be a bit much. The unbelievable incident occurred in Laguna Beach, a southern California town of about 23,000 residents. In the summer of 2018, Gutierrez was arrested and jailed by Laguna Beach Police on suspicion of driving under the influence. The law enforcement agency held him at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) so the feds could take custody. In all, Gutierrez spent around 15 hours in Laguna Beach Police custody and several more hours in a Los Angeles immigrant detention facility, according to a local news report. Apparently, Gutierrez wasn’t deported because he is protected by an Obama-era amnesty program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that temporarily shields illegal immigrants that came to the U.S. as children. Government figures show that more than100,000 illegal immigrants who have requested DACA have serious criminal histories that include murder, rape and assault charges.

Imagine if every American city paid each of them a settlement for cooperating with federal authorities. Gutierrez came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico when he was three and takes responsibility for the “actions” that led to his arrest. He said this in one local news report: “I acknowledge that and I am at fault for that and I am dealing with the consequences of that.” However, the illegal immigrant added that police should not be working with ICE to deport undocumented aliens like him who are protected under DACA. He is calling on fellow illegal immigrants to speak up and come forward when they feel there’s been an injustice or if their “rights” have been violated. After taking a victory lap, his publicly-funded lawyers filed another complaint this week with the Laguna Beach Police Department that will require more taxpayer resources to defend.

Tell me again how Democrats put American citizens first

When Democrat sanctuary cities both pay illegal aliens and let them off of charges that would set American citizens back by thousands of dollars, please tell me how Democrats put Americans first.
