Stolen Babies? Immigrant Mother Loses Four Kids (ABC News, Feb. 2, 2012):

The scars of childbirth were still healing on Amelia Reyes Jimenez’s stomach in 2008 when police came to her Phoenix apartment and took her three-month-old daughter from her arms.

Three and a half years later, Reyes Jimenez and her four children have become statistics in the U.S. crackdown on illegal immigration. Each year thousands of children of undocumented immigrants, like Amelia’s kids, wind up in foster care when their parents are arrested for immigration violations. Some are even adopted by U.S. citizens while their parents are held in federal detention centers or deported back to their native countries.

Reyes Jimenez’s son and three daughters are now living in foster care in Phoenix, and are awaiting possible adoption. Reyes Jimenez is back in Mexico, her parental rights terminated by an Arizona judge, and she cries when she remembers the raid that began it all.

“My daughters were calling, ‘Mommy, my Mommy,'” said Reyes Jimenez. “I felt destroyed. I felt like I would never see my girls, even worse [the baby] was so small. I had just bought her cradle and her stroller.”

A new study by the human rights group Applied Research Center estimates that as of summer 2011 there were at least 5,100 children of detained immigrants in foster care in 22 states.

Update:

ALIPAC Press Release Angers Dream Amnesty Sponsor (ALIPAC):

For National Release

December 21, 2010

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is releasing a statement today rebutting Senator Dick Durbin’s (D-IL) attacks on the group’s statements that helped defeat the Dream Act Amnesty cloture vote this past Saturday December 18, 2010, which marks the legislation’s seventh defeat in Washington.

Senator Durbin scrambled to save the bill from ALIPAC’s accusation that the waiver provision found on page 5, line 21, would allow the Obama administration to bypass most of the requirements in the bill and give amnesty to most illegal aliens in America including terrorists and criminals.

In a desperate effort to save the bill from ALIPAC’s revelations about the waiver, Senator Durbin claimed on the Senate floor that, “During the course of preparing for this, one Senator received a notice that said that the DREAM Act allows the Secretary of Homeland Security to waive all grounds of inadmissibility for illegal aliens including criminals, terrorists, and certain gang members. We had my staff call the Senator’s office who put this out and ask: Where did you get that? That is not what it says. They couldn’t point to any source.”

He continues, “We then called the Department of Homeland Security and said: “All right, give us an answer. Under the DREAM Act, could you waive all these things, would terrorists and criminals have a right? Of course not. The Department of Homeland Security came back and said: No, that isn’t what the law says at all. So we are battling not only passing a bill but a lot of misinformation. That is troublesome.”

The source of this bill stopping information is no mystery. The source is the text of the legislation itself and the national press release put out by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC at 9:00 am on the same day of Durbin’s comments titled ‘Dream Amnesty Allows Obama To Grant Amnesty To All Illegals’

Senator Durbin is likely aware of the source of his concerns about the waiver provision because some of his staff members subscribe to ALIPAC’s email alerts and updates!

All US Senate offices were flooded with copies of this press release including calls from thousands of activists.

“Senator Durbin’s attempt to use Homeland Security, which under Napolitano is one of the most aggressive promoters of Amnesty for illegal immigrants, is absurd,” said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. “All we did is draw lawmakers attention to page 5 line 21 of HR 5281 where it clearly states that Homeland Security can waive all of the other requirements in the bill and apply this legislation as mass amnesty for most of the illegal aliens in America!”

ALIPAC, which has played a key role in defeating the Dream Act Amnesty seven times following this recent vote, stands by the decision to release the waiver information as a method to stop HR 5281. If more elected officials actually read the bills they were voting on, such efforts would not be needed.

Close inspection of HR 5281, which was defeated in the Senate by a narrow margin, finds a blanket waiver provision on page 5 line 21 Sec. 6 (a)(2). Immediately following all of the promises in the bill that only illegal aliens who claim they are under 30, claim they have been in the US 5 years, and claim they were brought here by others when they were under 16, and claim they are going to college or into the military, the waiver allows all of these considerations to be dropped.

“(2) WAIVER.—With respect to any benefit under this section and sections…the Secretary of Homeland Security may waive the… ground of inadmissibility …and the ground of deportability… for humanitarian purposes or family unity or when it is otherwise in the public interest.”

“We are glad that our organization’s decision to focus on this dirty trick waiver buried in the bill upset Senator Durbin so much,” said William Gheen. “Next time we want him to cite the obvious source of his problem. We are Americans of every race, party, and walk of life who oppose illegal immigration and Amnesty. We are Americans for Legal Immigration PAC!”

Dream Act Amnesty Defeated Again Today!

Friends of ALIPAC,

We have won another round against Reid, Pelosi, and Obama’s Dream Act Amnesty!

The Cloture Vote on HR 5281, which passed the House by a narrow margin, has failed with 55 votes for Cloture and 41 against leaving the bill supporters 5 votes short of what they needed.

We want thank each and every one of you that has supported ALIPAC, or NumbersUSA, or the many other great organization leading the charge against this nationally destructive Amnesty.

Your calls, donations, and emails have made the difference and you did it without significant mass media support from the major networks including Drudge Report which took a dive and kept silent on this issue again.

We appreciate all of the sacrifices people have made and those working today instead of spending much deserved time with their friends and family members.

While Dream Amnesty Cloture has failed we are not out of the woods just yet until the final bell rings and Congress adjourns for the session. In fact, we will not be truly safe until January 6, when the new historic Congress you helped to elect is sworn in.

We must remain diligent and ready to respond at a moments notice through Christmas and New Years as evil Harry Reid and his traitors could try anything at any moment.

But today, for this brief moment, our hard work has paid off.

Three cheers for our victory over Dream Amnesty!

Praise be to God for allowing us to still have a country today.

Sincerely,

William Gheen and The ALIPAC Team

Dream Amnesty Allows Obama To Grant Amnesty To All Illegals

For National Release

ALIPAC is rallying talk radio show listeners and American citizens to call the US Senate to oppose the Dream Act Amnesty today. The bill contains a waiver that would allow the Secretary of Homeland Security and President Obama to grant Amnesty to most illegal immigrants in America.

“The Dream Act Amnesty is a Nightmare already and would displace several million innocent American students, workers, and voters,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “But now we find a waiver on page 5, line 21 of HR 5281 that allows Obama to grant Amnesty for most of the 12-20 million illegal aliens in America!”

Close inspection of HR 5281, which passed the house last week by a narrow margin, finds a blanket waiver provision on page 5 line 21 Sec. 6 (a)(2). Immediately following all of the promises in the bill that only illegal aliens that claim they are under 30, claim they have been in the US 5 years, and claim they were brought here by others when they were under 16, and claim they are going to college or into the military, the waiver allows all of these considerations to be dropped.

“(2) WAIVER.—With respect to any benefit under this section and sections…the Secretary of Homeland Security may waive the… ground of inadmissibility …and the ground of deportability… for humanitarian purposes or family unity or when it is otherwise in the public interest.”

This provision will grant the Obama administration the power to declare full amnesty for the 12 to 20 million adult illegal immigrants in America!

“Most of America has been suckered into thinking this Dream Act Amnesty cloture vote will just be about a subsection of illegal aliens brought here as kids and that’s a lie,” said William Gheen. “Americans need to call the Senate today to oppose this bill because it gives the Obama administration the power to grant Amnesty to tens of millions of illegals who will in turn destroy the borders of the United States.”

The pace of deportations of illegal immigrants from the Pacific Northwest has reached an all-time high.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported 10,602 people from Washington, Oregon and Alaska in fiscal 2008, which ended Sept. 30. That’s a 37 percent increase over fiscal 2007 when 7,688 illegal aliens were sent back to their home countries, according to an ICE press release.

The federal government is continuing the incremental agenda to build a Ministry of Love styled detention camp system for the American people. According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency or ICE is building three new detention camps in the United States. The detention facilities will be minimum-security residential facilities that the federal government says will be used to house illegal aliens. Considering that the majority of the American people are against illegal immigration and just want immigrants to come into the country legally, most people will believe that this is a reasonable step to solve the illegal immigration problem. Unfortunately, this is really nothing more than a phony solution to solve a problem that has been created by government policies that have been implemented to encourage the illegal alien problem. The federal government is using the illegal immigration problem as an excuse to build the detention camp apparatus that is really meant for the American people. This is pretty obvious considering Rex 84, the Army’s Civilian Inmate Labor Program, the preservation of detention camps for Japanese Americans used during World War II and additional detention facilities built by KBR. Building a series of detention facilities is not going to resolve the illegal immigration problem with an administration that has supported policies to ensure as many illegal aliens enter the country as possible. As the economy unravels and as more and more people begin to protest against this criminal government, the establishment will need these detention facilities to lock up large numbers of Americans.

Recently in Waterloo Iowa, the federal government through ICE and FEMA built a temporary detention facility on the National Cattle Congress fairgrounds to round up a group of illegal aliens working in the area. Rounding up a few hundred illegal aliens does absolutely nothing to reverse the long standing policies that created the illegal immigration problem in the first place. In fact, all they are doing to the illegal aliens they round up is to process them through their temporary FEMA camp. This is clearly not an effective way to stop illegal immigration. Under the guise of solving the illegal immigration issue they are simply having their people go through the motions in order to practice the deployment of a FEMA camp and the processing of live test subjects through the FEMA camp.

According to a report from Radar Magazine, top secret continuity of government operations includes a database called Main Core which contains a list of 8 million Americans. During a national emergency, people in this database could be arrested and detained by government authorities. In 2007, George W. Bush signed National Security Presidential Directive 51 which gives the president authority over all three branches of government during a catastrophic emergency. The Bush administration has also refused to reveal details on specific details of continuity of government operations to the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee. Perhaps the Main Core database and the plans to round up American citizens listed in this database during a national emergency is one of the reasons why they are keeping these details secret.

FEMA has also announced that they are expanding a program to transport a large number of American citizens using trains during an emergency. This is the same method that the Nazis used to transport large numbers of Jews and political dissidents to their death camps. Continue reading »

BROWNSVILLE – Ending speculation about the fate of the Rio Grande Valley’s undocumented immigrants during a hurricane evacuation, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has confirmed it will check the citizenship both of people boarding buses to leave the Valley and at inland traffic checkpoints.

Those determined to be in the country illegally will be taken to detention centers away from the hurricane’s path and later processed for deportation.

“It’s business as usual at the checkpoints,” said Dan Doty, spokesman for CBP’s Rio Grande Valley sector. “We’ll still check everybody.”

Locals responded with predictions of humanitarian disaster.

“We can’t wait to see the helicopter photos of us sitting on roofs,” said the Rev. Mike Seifert, a priest and activist based in a colonia outside Brownsville. The many area families with one or more undocumented members would just refuse to evacuate, he said.

“Imagine,” Seifert said. “We’re all in an uproar, everybody’s in an enormous hurry, there’s just a narrow window of opportunity and you get to the place with the buses and the Border Patrol’s checking people. You’re not going to go.” Continue reading »

Feds say raid is nation’s largest

May 13, 2008


Cedar Rapids, Ia. – The number of illegal immigrants detained Monday in Postville has risen to 390 in what federal officials now describe as the largest single-site raid of its kind nationwide.

The detainees include 314 men and 76 women, according to figures released this morning by federal authorities. Fifty-six detainees – mostly women with young children – have been released under the supervision of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“We’re here to discuss not only the largest operation of its kind ever in Iowa, but in fact the largest single-site enforcement operation of its kind in the country,” U.S. Attorney Matt M. Dummermuth said.

The detainees included 290 who claimed to be Guatemalans, 93 Mexicans, three Israelis and four Ukrainians. Among the detained were 12 juveniles, six of whom have been released.

Customs and law enforcement agents worked through the night processing the detainees, said Claude Arnold, the ICE special agent in charge of the operation. Detainees were “administratively arrested” but have not yet been criminally charged, he said.

Detainees who are charged with aggravated identity theft, unlawful use of a Social Security number or other offenses will be given lawyers and sent to appearances in one of three makeshift courtrooms at the detainee center in Waterloo, Arnold said. Continue reading »

The federal government is getting ready to put large amounts of people in camps and they don’t care what the American people think about it.”
_________________________________________________________________________________________

As predicted last week, ICE has begun factory raids of illegal aliens in Iowa. This was not very difficult to predict. The federal government last week leased out the National Cattle Congress fairgrounds in Waterloo, Iowa until May 25th and began moving trailers and generators on location. Reports from the Des Moines Register and the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier indicated that FEMA and ICE, two agencies within the Department of Homeland Security were involved in this secretive operation. Considering the large groups of illegal alien factory workers in the area of the fairgrounds, it wasn’t hard to figure out what was going to happen next. The Department of Homeland Security has now decided to go live with their test FEMA camp operation and are using illegal aliens as live subjects for processing purposes. This is a drill designed to setup a FEMA camp that will be used to process American citizens. Make no mistake about it, this has nothing to do with stopping illegal immigration. Rounding up a few hundred illegal aliens and asking them questions is going to do nothing to resolve the policies that have encouraged and facilitated the illegal alien problem. It does however serve as a fine test run for processing large groups of people through a FEMA camp. Continue reading »

Editor’s Note: A recently announced contract for a Halliburton subsidiary to build immigrant detention facilities is part of a longer-term Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.” Scott is author of “Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003). He is completing a book on “The Road to 9/11.” Visit his Web site at http://www.peterdalescott.net.

The Halliburton subsidiary KBR (formerly Brown and Root) announced on Jan. 24 that it had been awarded a $385 million contingency contract by the Department of Homeland Security to build detention camps. Two weeks later, on Feb. 6, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced that the Fiscal Year 2007 federal budget would allocate over $400 million to add 6,700 additional detention beds (an increase of 32 percent over 2006). This $400 million allocation is more than a four-fold increase over the FY 2006 budget, which provided only $90 million for the same purpose.

Both the contract and the budget allocation are in partial fulfillment of an ambitious 10-year Homeland Security strategic plan, code-named ENDGAME, authorized in 2003. According to a 49-page Homeland Security document on the plan, ENDGAME expands “a mission first articulated in the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798.” Its goal is the capability to “remove all removable aliens,” including “illegal economic migrants, aliens who have committed criminal acts, asylum-seekers (required to be retained by law) or potential terrorists.”

There is no question that the Bush administration is under considerable political pressure to increase the detentions of illegal immigrants, especially from across the Mexican border. Confrontations along the border are increasingly violent, often involving the drug traffic. Continue reading »
