- Detained in Washington: ‘They put me in shackles. Why? I am not a criminal’ (Guardian, April 10, 2014):

Almost 34,000 undocumented migrants are locked up in America’s vast network of detention facilities – and Tacoma is the crucible of a burgeoning protest campaign.

At first glance, there’s nothing remarkable about the brown slab of building at the end of East J Street. A long concrete rectangle with a few small windows, it blends into an industrial district of warehouses outside Tacoma, a rainy port city in Washington state.

A high fence topped with razor wire betrays its true function. Reception gives another clue: lockers for visitors to store possessions. To go further you must pass through a body scanner.

- Farage Blasts “Bullying Brussels”, Cheers Swiss Immigration Curbs Bill (ZeroHedge, Feb 10, 2014):

Switzerland’s surprise decision in favor of curbing EU immigration, was greeted by UKIP’s Nigel Farage as “wonderful news for national sovereignty and freedom lovers throughout Europe.” With 50.3% of Swiss voters backing the “Stop Mass Immigration” bill proposed by right-wing populists, AFP reports that Farage (who has been outspoken over immigration and sovereignty problems in Europe) added “a wise and strong Switzerland has stood up to the bullying and threats of the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels.” As we noted previously, with the EU elections rapidly approaching non-centrist status quo parties are quickly gaining attention as ‘the protest vote’ gains traction.

- Europe Stunned, Angry As Switzerland Votes To Curb Immigration (ZeroHedge, Feb 9, 2014):

This wasn’t supposed to happen. At a time when the European Union, reeling from the ongoing near collapse of the Eurozone, has been preaching its key benefits – the removal of borders and the free transit of labor – moments ago Switzerland, with a tiny majority of 50.4%, voted in favor of new immigration curbs which requires the government to set an upper limit for foreigners, risking a backlash from the (utterly toothless) European Union.

In some ways this was a vote of the urban vs rural population: Voters in the cities of Zurich and Basel and cantons in western Switzerland opposed the measures, while those in rural German- speaking cantons and the Italian-speaking region of Ticino backed it, reports Bloomberg.

The problem for Europe is that the backlash against immigration was supposed to be a PIIG thing, having led to the surge of such nationalist parties as Golden Dawn in Greece, but they don’t matter as the will of the “peripheral” people is completely ignored in Europe. However, now that one of Europe’s most successful nations has opined against the free importing of labor, despite the prevalent perception that it has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of immigration, Switzerland has just left Europe’s pro-migration propaganda in shambles.

To wit, from Bloomberg:

- 19 Very Disturbing Facts About Illegal Immigration That Every American Should Know (The American Dream, Aug 9, 2013):

Should we roll out the red carpet and allow millions upon millions of thieves, rapists, gang members and drug dealers to come waltzing into this country any time they would like?  Should we broadcast a message to the rest of the world that anyone that can find a way to enter this country and somehow get to a “sanctuary city” can sign up for a plethora of welfare benefits and live a life of leisure at the expense of hard working American citizens?  Yes, those questions sound absurd, but what I have just described will essentially be official U.S. government policy if the immigration bill going through Congress becomes law.  And unfortunately, Democrats now say that they have the Republican votes that they need to get “immigration reform” through the House of Representatives.  If this amnesty bill becomes law, it will encourage even more illegal immigration and it will be one more step toward making the U.S. border essentially meaningless.

And here is what ‘they’ forgot to tell you about the immigration bill:

Flashback:

- Hidden In The Immigration Reform Bill: National Biometric Database Of All Adult Americans:

Oh just another eight hundred page “bipartisan” bill that nobody will read,  mainstream media will refuse to cover, and that will merely further destroy any remnants of freedom left in these United States.  Never forget the George Carlin quote on bipartisanship:

“Bipartisan usually means that a larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.”

From Wired:

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.


“It starts to change the relationship between the citizen and state, you do have to get permission to do things,” said Chris Calabrese, a congressional lobbyist with the American Civil Liberties Union. “More fundamentally, it could be the start of keeping a record of all things.”

- Obama doubles down on pledge that immigration bill will boost economy (The Hill, July 13, 2013):

Passage of sweeping legislation to overhaul the nation’s immigration system is a key to the nation’s fragile economic recovery, President Obama told the nation on Saturday in his weekly address.

The bill, passed by the Senate two weeks ago, would grow the economy by five percent, the president said, citing a report issued by his administration earlier in the week.

“That’s $1.4 trillion added to our economy just by fixing our immigration system,” Obama said.

- Senate passes sweeping immigration bill (CNN, June 28, 2013):

Washington — The U.S. Senate gave final approval Thursday to a roughly 1,200-page bill that promises to overhaul immigration laws for the first time since 1986, creating a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented residents while ratcheting up security along the Mexican border.

Senators passed the sweeping legislation — initially drafted by the four Democrats and four Republicans in the chamber’s so-called “Gang of Eight” — by a 68-32 vote.

Fourteen Republicans joined a united Democratic caucus in supporting the bill, which is backed by the White House and has the potential to become the crowning legislative achievement of President Barack Obama’s second term.

In a White House statement, Obama hailed the Senate vote as “a critical step” toward fixing what he called a broken immigration system. He labeled the measure that now goes to the Republican-controlled House a compromise, adding that “we just need Congress to finish the job.”

- Guess What’s Hidden in the Immigration Bill? A National Biometric Database for Citizens (Liberty  Blitzkrieg, May 10, 2013):

Oh just another eight hundred page “bipartisan” bill that nobody will read,  mainstream media will refuse to cover, and that will merely further destroy any remnants of freedom left in these United States.  Never forget the George Carlin quote on bipartisanship:

“Bipartisan usually means that a larger-than-usual deception is being carried out.”

From Wired:

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.

Buried in the more than 800 pages of the bipartisan legislation (.pdf) is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID.

This piece of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act is aimed at curbing employment of undocumented immigrants. But privacy advocates fear the inevitable mission creep, ending with the proof of self being required at polling places, to rent a house, buy a gun, open a bank account, acquire credit, board a plane or even attend a sporting event or log on the internet. Think of it as a government version of Foursquare, with Big Brother cataloging every check-in.

- ICE Agents Sue to Stop Obama’s Deferred Deportation Policy (FOX News, Aug 23, 2012):

Disgruntled Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are suing their bosses over changes made to deportation policy by President Barack Obama.

A lawsuit filed Thursday on behalf of 10 ICE agents against the head of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, and ICE Director John Morton asks the courts to overturn the June 15 directive by Obama to suspend deportation proceedings and offer work authorization to some immigrants brought here illegally as children.

The ICE agents accuse the Obama administration of keeping them from enforcing immigration law, and of overstepping Congress by changing deportation policy through a directive rather than legislation.

“The Directive commands ICE officers to violate federal law,” the lawsuit says. Continue reading »

With a stroke of his pen Obama has effectively ended state immigration enforcement, forcing states to now call upon the infamous Department of Homeland Security’s Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) wing in order to deport ANY illegal.

- High court strikes down key parts of Arizona immigration law (NBC Politics, June 25, 2012):

Updated at 1:15 am ET In a split decision, the Supreme Court on Monday upheld one part of a tough Arizona immigration law, but struck down other sections.

The part of the law the justices upheld requires police officers stopping someone to make efforts to verify the person’s immigration status with the federal government.

Text of the decision (PDF)

The justices struck down three other parts of the law:

  • One making it a crime for an illegal immigrant to work or to seek work in Arizona;
  • One which authorized state and local officers to arrest people without a warrant if the officers have probable cause to believe a person is an illegal immigrant;
  • And one that made it a state requirement for immigrants to register with the federal government.

“Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration” while the federal goverrment tries to enforce immigration law, but the state “may not pursue policies that undermine federal law,” wrote Justice Anthony Kennedy in the majority opinion.

Description:

Judge Andrew Napolitano stopped by Fox & Friends Tuesday morning to discuss President Barack Obama’s route to enacting his new immigration policy and what impact it might have for deportations in the future.

“The problem is this,” Napolitano told host Brian Kilmeade, “the President has unilaterally changed the law. He has rewritten the law. His heart may be in the right place for a group of people that he feels will have to stay here, but he can’t do that. Only Congress can change the law. The law requires predictability. It requires fairness and it has to be constitutional. If the President writes it, it’s not constitutional, and if he changes the law, there’s no predictability and only the Congress can decide whether coming before age 16 is fair. How about 15? How about 17? The President made it out of his own head and we don’t have a system that permits that.”

“If the President thinks a law is unconstitutional, he cannot enforce — he can refuse to enforce it,” he continued. “Thomas Jefferson did that. But the President cannot rewrite a law to make it more to his liking. Only the Congress can remedy that. The President is bypassing the Congress yet again for what seems to be the umpteenth time.”

- Citizenship for sale: Foreign investors flock to U.S. (CNN Money):

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Good riddance, Eduardo.

Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin drew public ire last month following the revelation that he had renounced his U.S. citizenship, a move widely seen as a tax dodge. But thousands of wealthy foreigners are lining up to replace him, making investments here and putting themselves on a path to citizenship in the process.

The State Department expects to issue over 6,000 “investor visas” in the current fiscal year, which would be an all-time record. Other countries, meanwhile, are following the U.S.’s lead, keen to spur growth in lean economic times.

- 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.

- Union President Testifies: ICE HQ Ordered Agents Not to Arrest Illegals–Including Fugitives (CNS News, Oct. 20, 2011):

Chris Crane, president of a union that represents Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, testified in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration last week that ICE agents have been told by ICE headquarters not to arrest illegal aliens who do not have a prior criminal conviction even if they are fugitives who have been ordered deported by an immigration judge or are individuals who have illegally re-entered the United States after being deported and thus have perpetrated a felony.

“Aliens who could not be arrested included but were not limited to ICE fugitives that had been ordered deported by a federal immigration judge as well as aliens who had illegally re-entered the United States after deportation, a federal felony,” Crane, who is also an active-duty ICE agent, told the committee on Oct. 12.

“ICE officers and agents also alleged that they were not permitted to arrest or even speak to confirmed or suspected illegal aliens encountered in the field during operations and were prohibited from running standard criminal record checks for wants and warrants,” Crane testified.

- Dictator Obama Prepares for Conflict With American Citizens (ALIPAC, August 25, 2011):

This week several left wing illegal alien Amnesty supporting organizations and blogs are lying to their readers claiming that I suggested or called for violent and illegal insurgency to remove Barack Obama from office while appearing on the Janet Mefferd radio show this past Monday.

I made no such comments. In fact, while I was reporting the condition that the American public is being forced into by Dictator Barack Obama, I said that I could not even talk about such things. Here is the quote that has Obama supporters eager to malign my meaning.

“We’re no longer referring to him as President Barack Obama, our national organization has made the decision and made the announcement we now refer to him as Dictator Barack Obama. That’s what he is. And basically at this point, if you’re looking for a peaceful political recourse, there really isn’t one that we can think of, and I’m really not sure what to tell people out there other than I guess they need to make decisions soon to just accept whatever comes next or some type of extra-political activities that I can’t really talk about because they’re all illegal and violent.”

Listen to Entire William Gheen Interview on Janet Mefferd Show (CLICK HERE)

My contention that Barack Obama has committed a form of Treason against the people of the United States has his elite political supporters bouncing off the walls. Obama’s approval numbers are crashing as more Americans find out about Obama’s illegal Amnesty and dictatorial actions, and my musings on a talk radio show are now drawing more attention to what has happened.

No major media outlets in America are adequately conveying to the public what has just happened here, so my baiting of Obama supporters on the Mefford show is helping to generate some controversy that escalates exposure of Obama’s dastardly actions to support illegal aliens with Amnesty while silencing the political voices of all Americans that oppose such matters.

We are calling on Americans of every race, political party, and walk of life to unite behind this call for the impeachment of President Obama. All Americans who believe in the US Constitution, laws of Congress, and self-governance of Americans through elections should stand up against the recent authoritarian and unjust actions of President Obama.

Update:

- ALIPAC Press Release Angers Dream Amnesty Sponsor (ALIPAC):

For National Release

December 21, 2010

CONTACT: Americans For Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)
(866) 703-0864 WilliamG@alipac.us

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

December 17, 2010

CONTACT: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)
(866) 703-0864 WilliamG@alipac.us

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.”

A new force of armed European guards is to be dispatched to Greece to patrol the country’s border with Turkey in an attempt to stem steeply increasing illegal immigration into Europe.

The deployment of the Rapid Intervention Border Teams, assembled from the border guard forces of other European countries, will be the first time Brussels has deployed multinational armed units on the EU’s external land border.

The teams are to arrive in Greece within days, the European commission announced today , although the precise numbers and makeup are yet to be decided.

A commission official said: “This is a new front. The teams are armed, but they can only use their arms in self-defence.”

Struggling to cope with the hundreds of migrants who are entering Greece every day through an inhospitable, unmonitored stretch of the country’s border with Turkey near the town of Edirne, Athens appealed to Brussels for help at the weekend.

“The flows of people crossing the border irregularly have reached alarming proportions,” said Cecilia Malmström, commissioner for home affairs. “Greece is manifestly not able to face this situation alone.”

Some eight out of 10 migrants entering Europe this year have arrived in Greece via Turkey, according to Brussels. Some are illegal economic migrants, at the mercy of gangs of human traffickers; many are Iraqi and Afghan asylum seekers, whose treatment by the Greek authorities the United Nations and the EU regard as indefensible.
