After the latest scuffle between the media and the Trump Administration over a memo drafted by Secretary of Homeland Security, John Kelly, which allegedly called for as much as 100,000 national guard troops to be deployed to arrest illegal immigrants, moments ago the AP released the leaked memo titled “Implementing the President’s Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements Policies”, to the general public.

The memo, first reported by the Associated Press Friday, lays out several possible policies to help implement President Trump’s executive order regarding border enforcement. Shortly after the report hit, the White House strongly denied the report, calling it “100% not true.” A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security says that the memo was a very early draft, and the idea for National Guard mobilization was “never seriously considered.”
You can’t make this stuff up!
In testimony provided before the California Senate’s Public Safety Committee, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon (D-Los Angeles) decided to admit that “half of his family” is residing in the United States illegally and with the possession of falsified Social Security Cards and green cards. Lest you think we’re exaggerating, here is the exact quote:
“…I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.”
The quote came from a hearing being held on SB54, a California Senate bill that was introduced by De Leon that would make the entire state of California a “Sanctuary State” (we discussed SB54 here: “California Considering Legislation To Become First Ever Sanctuary State“). Fast forward to the 1:27:00 mark for the relevant comments from De Leon:
Who in their right mind would want to let these violent bastards into their country???
When illegal intruders attacked the Hungarian border and policemans, the police used tear gas. After this event, photographers made some photos from two girl who probably breathed the gas. A bunch of people stood around the two girls (activists, photographers and two migrants). In a moment (4:01) perceptible, as one of the girl (blue backpack) trying to go from there, but a person pull back her to take photos. After these moments, the two sadist intruders (parents of girls ?!), dragged back the girls to the front (5:41), and provocate policemans to use tear gas again. The girls sobbed and tried to resist, but the sadistic migrants didn’t care. The activists and photographers didn’t mind it too, just watched, as intruders forcing the girls to the front.

– Steve King: Comparing Immigrants To Dogs Was ‘A Compliment’ (Huffington Post, Oct 21, 2012):
WASHINGTON — Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Sunday stood by eyebrow-raising comments he made in May, insisting that he was praising immigrants when he compared selecting visa recipients to choosing a “good bird dog.”
“It was a compliment … They knew it was a compliment, they turned it into an insult because they’re professional hyperventilators,” the immigration hardliner said in an interview on Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO-TV, posted by a site run by the campaign of his Democratic opponent, Christie Vilsack.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — In order to become a permanent, legal resident of the U.S., immigrants now must receive a vaccine that is not required of U.S. citizens.
Policy Adds People Arrested but Not Convicted
The U.S. government will soon begin collecting DNA samples from all citizens arrested in connection with any federal crime and from many immigrants detained by federal authorities, adding genetic identifiers from more than 1 million individuals a year to the swiftly growing federal law enforcement DNA database.
The policy will substantially expand the current practice of routinely collecting DNA samples from only those convicted of federal crimes, and it will build on a growing policy among states to collect DNA from many people who are arrested. Thirteen states do so now and turn their data over to the federal government.
The initiative, to be published as a proposed rule in the Federal Register in coming days, reflects a congressional directive that DNA from arrestees be collected to help catch a range of domestic criminals. But it also requires, for the first time, the collection of DNA samples from people other than U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who are detained by U.S. authorities.
Although fingerprints have long been collected for virtually every arrestee, privacy advocates say the new policy expands the DNA database, run by the FBI, beyond its initial aim of storing information on the perpetrators of violent crimes.
They also worry that people could be detained erroneously and swept into the database without cause, and that DNA samples from those who are never convicted of a crime, because of acquittal or a withdrawal of charges, might nonetheless be permanently retained by the FBI.
“Innocent people don’t belong in a so-called criminal database,” said Tania Simoncelli, science adviser for the American Civil Liberties Union. “We’re crossing a line.”
