ICE is Targeting Sanctuary Cities with Raids

Why wouldn’t ICE target sanctuary cities? That’s where the illegals are.

It’s like Willie Sutton, the famous bank robber. When asked why he robbed banks, he replied that banks are where the money is.

Excerpt from KTLA

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been targeting so-called “sanctuary cities” with increased enforcement operations in an effort to pressure those jurisdictions to cooperate with federal immigration agents, a senior U.S. immigration official with direct knowledge of ongoing ICE actions told CNN.

A sanctuary city is a broad term applied to states, cities and/or counties that have policies in place designed to limit cooperation or involvement in the enforcement of federal immigration operations. More than 100 U.S. jurisdictions — among them New York, Los Angeles and Chicago — identify as such.

High-ranking ICE officials have discussed in internal meetings carrying out more raids on those locations, said the source.

This week, a federal judge in Texas seems to have confirmed that tactic. U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Austin revealed during an immigration hearing Monday that a mid-February raid in the Austin metro area was done in retaliation for a local sheriff’s recent decision to limit her department’s cooperation with ICE.

“There’s been questions about whether Austin is being targeted. We had a briefing…. that we could expect a big operation, agents coming in from out of town. There was going to be a specific operation, and it was at least related to us in that meeting that it was a result of the sheriff’s new policy that this was going to happen,” Austin says in audio of the proceedings provided by the court.

The judge’s comments came as he questioned an ICE agent about a recent unrelated arrest.

Austin said that in a late January meeting, local ICE officials told him and another federal judge that an upcoming enforcement operation was being done in direct response to Sheriff Sally Hernandez’s adoption of a sanctuary policy in Travis County.

SHERIFF SALLY HERNANDEZ, AUSTIN, TEXAS AREA (TRAVIS COUNTY).

Earlier this year, Hernandez announced that beginning in February, her department would no longer honor ICE detainers unless the individual was arrested for murder, sexual assault or human trafficking, or a warrant had been issued. A detainer is a 48-hour hold request placed on suspected undocumented immigrants in local jails until federal agents can come in and take over the case.

A showdown in Travis County, Texas

It is a significant shift in the county’s immigration enforcement policy that has put the newly elected Democratic sheriff at odds with pro-enforcement local and state officials, including the Texas Senate, which recently passed a bill that withholds state dollars from sanctuary cities and Gov. Greg Abbott, who cut $1.5 million in funding to the county.

Days after Hernandez enacted the new measure, a series of immigration raids in Austin netted 51 arrests, fueling speculation that the city was being intentionally targeted. The judge’s comments in open court have further fanned those flames.

“My understanding, what was told to us, is that one of the reasons that happened was because the meetings that had occurred between the (ICE) field office director and the sheriff didn’t go very well,” said Judge Austin during the hearing. CNN reached out to the judge, but he declined to comment further.

We remain hopeful that President Trump will cut off funding to so-called sanctuary cities. Law enforcement should never have the option of putting the public safety at risk to pander to cheap politicians after the immigrant vote.

First Obama “Dreamer” Arrested: “We are hoping this detention was a mistake”

FEELING AFRAID YET, PUTA?

It’s too early to celebrate yet, but for those supporting the American worker over the illegal alien, there is good news.

It appears that the first effort to expel a so-called Dreamer has taken place in the U.S. state of Washington. A young Mexican male gang member has been detained, but not deported yet.

U.S. immigration authorities have detained a 23-year-old Mexican man who was brought to the United States illegally as a child and given a work permit during the Obama administration, according to a lawsuit challenging the detention in Seattle federal court.

The man’s lawyers say this could be the first time under U.S. President Donald Trump that a person covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has been taken into immigration custody. The program was established in 2012 by Democratic President Barack Obama to allow those brought to the country while young to attend school and work.

Ethan Dettmer, a partner in the law firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher and one of the lawyers representing the man, Daniel Ramirez Medina, said he is not aware of any other DACA recipient who has been arrested.

“We are hoping this detention was a mistake,” he added.

Ramirez was a “self-admitted gang member,” said Rose Richeson, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), in a statement.

“ICE officers took Mr Ramirez into custody based on his admitted gang affiliation and risk to public safety.”

REALITY.

LEFTIST PROPAGANDA. CONTRAST TO REALITY ABOVE.

It’s very clear that the lawyers for muh Mexican are going to be arguing before liberal judges that the arrested “dreamer” has a right to stay in the States. But if Obama gave him that right, wouldn’t Trump have the right to take it away?

Illegals Claim Fear of “white guy with a clipboard”

Don’t feel sorry for any of the deported and detained. The longer they’ve lived here, the longer they’ve been stealing from the American worker and taxpayer.

Excerpt from the Chicago Tribune

Pastor Fred Morris looked out over his congregation Sunday as news ricocheted around the world that American authorities were rounding up immigrants in an enforcement surge that President Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail.

Parishioners did not smile as on any other Sunday morning. They stared down at their feet. Others didn’t attend at all.

“There is a dreadful sense of fear. It’s more than palpable. It’s radiating. People are terrified,” said Morris, whose United Methodist mission is in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood of Los Angeles. “They were just sitting there in stunned silence.”

For days, fear and confusion have gripped immigrant communities after word spread that federal agents were rounding up hundreds of immigrants in cities across the country. The scope of the operation remained unclear on Sunday.

Advocates and immigration lawyers scrambled to contain the panic and to organize seminars and social media campaigns to teach people their rights.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said the efforts were “routine” and no different than the arrests carried out under former President Barack Obama that targeted those with criminal histories or multiple immigration violations.

But Trump took to Twitter to claim credit.

“The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise,” the president wrote. “Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!”

Immigration advocates said many immigrants are now afraid to send their children to school and afraid to go to church or work or the hospital. Panicked rumors spread as quickly as the truth.

“Every time so much as a white guy with a clipboard is walking around, everyone runs into their apartments and locks the doors,” Sandoval-Moshenberg said.

Trump signed an executive order days after taking office that made clear that almost any immigrant living illegally in America could be targeted.

Immigrant-rights groups cite the case of Manuel Mosqueda, a 50-year-old house painter, as an example of how they believe ICE agents in the new administration are again going too far.

During last week’s enforcement operation, ICE agents showed up at Mosqueda’s home in the LA suburbs looking for someone else. While there, they inquired about Mosqueda, learned he was here illegally and put him on a bus to Mexico.

Karla Navarrete, a lawyer for the advocacy group CHIRLA, said she sought to stop Mosqueda from being placed on the bus and was told by ICE that things had changed. She said another lawyer filed federal court papers and got a judge to stop the deportation. The bus turned around, and Mosqueda is now jailed in Southern California, waiting to learn his fate.

In Virginia, agents who went to an apartment Thursday looking for a wanted man picked up everyone else in the apartment too, except for one women with a baby in her arms, said Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg, legal director for Legal Aid Justice Center’s immigrant advocacy program in northern Virginia.

“Here’s what happens on the ground: Somebody knocks on the door, they ask for a name, the people are very scared,” said Tessie Borden, an advocate in Los Angeles. “Then they round everybody up and say ‘We’ll sort it out later.’ But sorting it out later may mean separating families and breaking down support systems for these folks.”

The message is getting out:

It’s still a drop in the bucket though.

ICE’s national office pushed back against the idea that anything was out of the ordinary.

“The rash of recent reports about purported ICE checkpoints and random sweeps are false, dangerous, and irresponsible,” the agency wrote in a statement about detentions in the Los Angeles area. “These reports create panic and put communities and law enforcement personnel in unnecessary danger. Individuals who falsely report such activities are doing a disservice to those they claim to support. “

Still, the agency acknowledged the “enforcement surge” in the Los Angeles area. During the five-day operation, ICE agents detained 160 people, all but 10 with “criminal histories,” according to a statement.

Immigrant rights advocates who keep a close eye on deportations said they’ve seen a clear uptick in arrests in multiple cities, including the deportation of Guadalupe “Lupita” García de Rayos, a mother of two U.S. citizens who came to the country at the age of 14, in Phoenix on Thursday.

Fear Rises in Taco Bender Hearts and Minds as ICE Retakes Enemy Territory Held by Mexicans

Officially, there’s 11 million Mexicans in America. Unofficially, it’s probably much higher than that.

So, there’s a lot of territory to be reclaimed from the enemy invaders. The few hundred detained over the last week is a pathetically small number. But the Mexicans are fighting to keep every one of them in the U.S., claiming that they have a right to be here because the whole continent is theirs.

The tears are already flowing like rain.

Los Angeles Times

Sweeping raids by U.S. immigration officials in recent days nabbed hundreds of individuals believed to be in the country illegally, spreading alarm among immigrant rights groups as they scrambled to gather information and warn people in communities nationwide.

Through social media and pop-up legal clinics, immigrant rights groups have doled out around-the-clock assistance, even as federal officials pushed back against the notion that the detentions reflected a vast overhaul of immigration law enforcement ordered by President Trump.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents had conducted “targeted enforcement operations” focused on detaining people with criminal backgrounds in cities across the country. Officials described the operations as “routine.”

Nearly 200 people throughout Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina were arrested last week during raids, according to a preliminary tally provided by ICE’s Atlanta field office. In the Los Angeles area, more than 150 arrests were made in a weeklong operation, ICE officials said.

And in Austin, Texas, ICE officials did not provide a total number of arrests but did notify the Mexican Consulate General of the number of Mexican nationals. A spokesman from the consulate said Saturday that nearly 50 arrests of Mexican nationals had been recorded since Thursday. On average, the consulate is notified of about three each day. (The Mexican government last week urged its nationals in the U.S. to “take precautions” amid a “new reality” for the immigrant community.)

“ICE conducts targeted immigration enforcement in compliance with federal law and agency policy. ICE does not conduct sweeps or raids that target aliens indiscriminately,” Bryan Cox, ICE’s Southern region communications director, said in a statement Saturday.

So many tears and it’s only the beginning.

Cities Vow to Fight Trump on Immigration, Even if They Lose Millions

trump heroic

Local officials who will not comply with federal law MUST be indicted, arrested, and put on trial for their crimes.

The nerve of the big city mayors and other officials named in this story. They all pander to the nonwhite, illegal voters who infest big American cities to such a degree that those cities are unlivable for the white majority.

Let us also not forget that President Eisenhower sent federal troops into the south to enforce school integration. Trump ought to do the same. Send in federal troops to force local law enforcement to turn over illegals for deportation.

MSN

Here in Los Angeles, where nearly half of the city’s residents are Latino, Mayor Eric Garcetti has vowed to do everything he can to fight widespread deportations of illegal immigrants.

In New York, with a large and diverse Latino population, Mayor Bill de Blasio has pledged not to cooperate with immigration agents. And Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago has declared that it “will always be a sanctuary city.”

Across the nation, officials in sanctuary cities are gearing up to oppose President-elect Donald J. Trump if he follows through on a campaign promise to deport millions of illegal immigrants. They are promising to maintain their policies of limiting local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents.

In doing so, municipal officials risk losing millions of dollars in federal assistance for their cities that helps pay for services like fighting crime and running homeless shelters. Mr. Trump has vowed to block all federal funding for cities where local law enforcement agencies do not cooperate with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents.

Illegal Immigrant Charged with Raping Six Year Old Texas Girl

border patrol

Hillary Clinton wants to amnesty 30 million illegal aliens inside the United States borders. More millions will arrive under her so-called leadership.

You hear the word “vetting” used a lot in discussions of immigration. Many foreigners are impossible to vet. It’s a pipe dream.

Deport those here now. Block future immigration, except for white refugees from South Africa and a few select other white migrants.

Breitbart

Police in Fort Worth, Texas, arrested an illegal immigrant and charged him with kidnapping and raping a six-year-old girl, reports reveal.

The child disappeared from her home in southeast Fort Worth sometime early in the morning of October 8, her parents said. A quick search party was organized but the child was not found until about 2 PM when someone heard screams coming from a patch of woods nearby.

Police say Edis Moya Alas, a 35-year-old El Salvadorian national, kidnapped the girl from her home and took her to an area near Titus Park were he then raped her, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Police were unsure how Alas knew of the girl or how he gained access to the home.

“The young child immediately saw police officers and ran towards us. She was very scared. She was very nervous,” police officials told NewsFix. “We owe a great debt to the citizen that actually heard the screams and notified us to go into that field area.”

The child’s parents said they all went to bed at around 10 PM on Friday night but the victim’s father had discovered the front door to the home standing open and his daughter missing sometime after 4 AM.

After being apprehended, Immigration Customs Enforcement officials told the Fort Worth Police that Alas was in the U.S. illegally.

Alas is currently housed in the Mansfield jail on a $200,000 bond.
