Bill Barr Moving To Control The Kritarchy

Well, at least the administrative kritarchy.  The National Association of Immigration Judges represents judges employed by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), a component of the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Immigration Judges are executive branch employees, and are therefore subject to the supervision of the President of the United States or his designates.  Most, if not all, executive branch employees are supervised, reviewed, evaluated, and managed by a numerous levels of management.  No one in the Executive Branch exercises independent judgement that is not reviewed by another Executive Branch employee, if not the President himself.  Immigration Judges are first supervised by the Chief Immigration Judge, Deputy Chief Immigration Judges, and Assistant Chief Immigration Judges, as well as the Attorney General, in both the exercises of their authority and administratively.  Immigration Judges are not independent, but neutral, in that they do not represent the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which brings cases to the EOIR.  Aliens may not bring cases independently to the EOIR, but only in response to an action taken against them by DHS.

Now, most attorneys in the DOJ are not unionized, e.g. represented by a bargaining unit in negotiating working conditions and disciplinary action, but not wages, benefits, or other conditions of employment.  In Federal unions, pay and benefits are not authorized as those are set by legislation.  Represented employees are also prohibited from taking action such as strikes or work slowdowns.

In fact, almost no DOJ attorneys are represented, including Assistant U.S. Attorneys and Trial Attorneys, the two largest group of attorneys in the DOJ.  Generally that is so because the nature of their work, including prosecuting and disciplining labor organizations makes representation a conflict.  Furthermore, any employee involved in national security work, which Immigration Judges are involved with mostly related to aliens being removed who are terrorists.  Similarly, most employees involved in investigating any crime are prohibited from being represented by unions.  For example, no FBI, DEA, or ATFE Special Agents are unionized.  Similarly Special Agents throughout the Federal government are not unionized, e.g. Secret Service, Homeland Security Investigations, Offices of Inspector General, etc.  Generally, the nature of their work makes union representation impossible.

Since Immigration Judges are similarly involved, they should not be unionized.  Sadly though, they are.  Since they represent the DOJ in legal proceedings, they should not be.  And, like the Clinton Administration, the Trump Administration is moving to decertify the Immigration Judge union.  This is good if not because of the overt and illegal political involvement by individual judges, also a criminal act under the Hatch Act which prohibits Federal employees from acting politically in their positions.

The Justice Department has moved to decertify the union of immigration judges, a maneuver that could muffle an organization whose members have sometimes been openly critical of the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement agenda.

The department filed a petition on Friday asking the Federal Labor Relations Authority to determine whether the union, the National Association of Immigration Judges, should have its certification revoked because its members are considered “management officials” ineligible to collectively organize, according to a Justice Department spokesman.

[Trump Administration Moves to Decertify Outspoken Immigration Judges’ Union, by Christina Goldbaum, NYT, August 10, 2019]

Note the #Lugenpresse headline.  “Outspoken,” tells the reader much.  It means that there is an underlying political issue, not only with the decertification, but the motive for resisting the desertification.  And the politicized kritarchs of the EOIR instantly admitted the issue is not management, but what the judges are doing, and what they think they should be doing, which is aiding illegal aliens.

The move suggested escalating tensions between overwhelmed immigration judges desperate for greater resources and a Justice Department pushing them to quickly address a backlog of immigration cases.

“This is a misguided effort to minimize our impact,” said Judge Amiena Khan, vice president of the judges’ union, which has publicly criticized the use of a quota system in immigration court and other attempts to speed up proceedings.

Note that Judge Khan is a radical and approves 93% of asylum cases in her court.  And it’s not about lazy judges not wanting to do their work.  It is about the decisions they make regarding aliens.

“We serve as a check and balance on management prerogatives and that’s why they are doing this to us,” said Judge Khan.

Now an employee of the DOJ or any other component of the Executive Branch who thinks they serve as a check on the President or other management is in the wrong position.  Subordinate employees implement the policy of the President and do not serve as a check on him, nor on the Attorney General.

And we get to the nub of the issue:  Judges don’t want to be supervised or checked in their machinations to assist illegal aliens:

Both Judge Khan and the union president, Judge Ashley Tabaddor, have spoken out repeatedly against what they say is an attempt to turn immigration judges from neutral arbiters of the law to law enforcement agents enacting the White House’s policies. They have called for immigration judges to be independent of the Justice Department.

Last year, the union criticized the department’s quota system, which required immigration judges to complete 700 cases per year, as well as a move to bar judges from an administrative tool they had previously used to reduce their caseloads. The union says the focus on efficiency impedes judges’ ability to work through complicated cases and could affect the due process rights of immigrants in court.

Tabaddor is notorious for her illegal political activity as an Immigration Judge which your correspondent has documented.  And the union doesn’t like it that the DOJ has moved in the past to discipline recalcitrant Immigration Judges who don’t like being supervised and don’t like following law and policy.  Specifically note the end of administrative closure, the above tool that reporter Goldbaum is so concerned about.  That was the initial tool of the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, with a long history of subversion of immigration enforcement.  Immigration Judges have their own program, and it is amnesty for illegal aliens, one by one if necessary.

Sadly though, the DOJ is hanging its hat on the management issue.  Fortunately, Immigration Judges do manage local court personnel, or at least have personnel working at their direction, as admitted in the article.

“I can’t work alone, I am reliant on support staff,” said Judge Khan. “Right now there are two judges to one support staff person,” which has delayed the progress of cases despite the additional judges, she said.

But there is an issue, the position description for Immigration Judge clearly states it is a non-supervisory position.

This is a non-supervisory position.

[Immigration Judge Announcement, DOJ, undated]

This means that the DOJ will have a hard time making the decertification stick if they are relying on the management issue.  They should move on the national security or policy implementation issue that the position is inherently incompatible with union representation.  I am afraid, like the Citizenship question issue on the Census, which was lost, this may be lost as well due to a bad legal strategy.  Better to just declare the position a national security position and decertification is automatic.  Jorge Bush did this with Special Agents in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and it was upheld.  Time for executive vigor.

Hapless Mark Morgan Afraid Of Words

I never liked Mark Morgan, he was, and is, an Obama Regime hack.  He, however, was able to ride the border crisis to a position with the Trump Administration.  However, the new enforcement minded Mark Morgan who played a tough guy on Fox News, has turned out to be the Obama Regime #DeepState saboteur that I had hope would be a patriot, but turned out to be what he was at first.  Contrast this with Ken Cuccinelli, whom your humble correspondent thought was a mistake to hire, but has turned out to be almost a Kris Kobach.

After the raids on the Mississippi chicken processors, Morgan stabbed his fellow Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees in the back.

Acting customs and border protection commissioner Mark Morgan said Sunday that the mass immigration raids at Mississippi workplaces last week were not “raids,” disputing the terminology that has been widely used to describe the operation.

“I think words matter. These aren’t raids. These are targeted law enforcement operations,” Morgan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Deep State Saboteur Mark Morgan

Morgan uses the new buzz word in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and DHS.  For some reason the word “raid” is a word to be feared and avoided.  Now the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) conducted raids.  ICE used the term raid in operations under Jorge Bush.  But no longer.  Eight years of Obama has in many ways neutered ICE and immigration enforcement in general.  It was almost as if Morgan and ICE bureaucrats want to protect illegal aliens from the effects of their criminal misconduct.  And ICE is missing out on the effects of words like “raid,” which should be shouted from the rooftops to encourage illegal aliens to self-deport.  Fear is the mind killer.  Use it to good effect.  And fire Mark Morgan.

 

Amid Failure, Small White Pill On Immigration Enforcement

Again, mea culpa, mea culpa.  Your correspondent is sometimes wrong, not often, but sometimes.  And again I must admit that Ken Cuccinelli is the man, while not quite Tom Homan or Kris Kobach, he is doing yeoman’s work at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that adjudicates applications for benefits.

ken_cuccinelli_1

Ken Cuccinelli, Doing God’s Work At USCIS

Never disappointing, Cuccinelli is on the attack.  Now he is correcting one of the major problems at USCIS, the current #DeepState in middle and upper management opposes fraud investigations.  The Resistance at USCIS only wants to approve applications, never deny, and never, never, investigate a fraudulent application resulting in an illegal alien being deported.

The agency in charge of granting citizenship and visas to immigrants is tired of getting duped by scammers and fraud lawyers and its new boss plans to fight back.

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, told Secrets that one of his top priorities will be to sniff out fraud among those trying to win citizenship, and take them to court.

“Anybody who lies to us about anything shouldn’t get whatever it is that they are asking for. And to me that’s pretty commonsensical,” he said.

Besides preserving citizenship for those who deserve or earn it, Cuccinelli said that the army of investigators and other officials at USCIS must be respected and not constantly lied to.

“We are taking steps to address all of these things … I think to the great enthusiasm to the people here in the agency,” he said, adding, “I think we are going to put ourselves in a position to prosecute virtually all of these. And that’s very unique .”

[‘All’ Immigration ‘Cheaters’ To Face Prosecution. Marriage, Fraud Lawyers Targeted,
By Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, August 09, 2019]

This is a major change from the past.  Under the Obama Regime, USCIS had a policy of not prosecuting criminally immigration fraud, as well as ignoring blatant fraud, generally by approving applications for benefits that had been identified as fraudulent by USCIS’ own Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate (FDNS).  USCIS also had a policy of not placing illegal aliens who were denied benefits in removal proceedings.  Instead they had a convoluted system where a committee would vote on whether an illegal alien who was denied a benefit would be placed in deportation proceedings.  And that does not even include arresting that alien.  Instead they would be sent a “run” letter informing the alien they were placed in deportation proceedings.

One hopes that Cuccinelli will see that such aliens who commit fraud are arrested, and not just sent a run letter.  Your correspondent warned President Trump that USCIS would be a problem.  [President Trump Will Have Foes In Immigration Bureaucracy—But Also Friends. They Can Help Him Win, by Federale, VDare, April 25, 2016]  And your correspondent offered some advice on how to manage USCIS, how to adjust their pro-illegal alien attitude.  [Taming U.S. Citizenship And Immigration Services, by Federale, Federale Blog (Censored by Google), December 17, 2016]  My advice holds today as it did then, even more so as the Deep State Resistance intensifies at USCIS.  Remember, the Deep State supports Muslim terrorism by aliens.  [Treason and Sabotage: Immigration Bureaucrats Acted To Protect San Bernardino Terrorists, by Federale, VDare, July 5, 2016]

 

Mexican Terrorists Fire On Border Patrol Boats On Rio Grande

Today, the Rio Grande is the center of the immigration crisis at the border.  While the flow of the Caravans of Death To America By Demographic Displacement have slowed somewhat, thousands daily are crossing the border, mostly over the Rio Grande, primarily in the Rio Grande Valley, a fairly small portion of the border.   Some years ago, your correspondent advised that the Rio Grande was the fulcrum of the battle for the border.  It could be won or lost on the Rio Grande.  The Obama Regime was determined to loose the battle during the first Children’s Jihad in 2014, but the then Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, strangely knew better, and, more importantly, acted with energy and determination.  The State of Texas deployed military and police forces to the Rio Grande and lakes on the border, mostly consisting of Texas State Troopers and Game Wardens from the Department of Parks and Wildlife in speed boats mounted with six, yes six, Model 240 Fabrique Nationale machine guns.  [Texas Supplying Its Own Border Patrol, Better Armed Than The USBP, by Federale, VDare, August 14, 2014]

Developing the theme, your correspondent further advised that President Trump deploy the Brown Water Navy, e.g. America’s riverine forces to the Rio Grande.  These forces are Army, Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine units specially trained in small boat handling and war making in the riverine environment beginning with Grand Army of the Republic units under General Ulysses S. Grant during the late unpleasantness between the States, but included the Vietnam War and the Second Iraq War.

Your correspondent also advised that militarizing the border and launching a new Punitive Expedition into Mexico to stamp out the cartels who are leading the violence and Zerg Rush at the border.

As if on cue, the Mexican government has again allowed cartels to wage war on the U.S. Border Patrol, showing either that Mexico is a failed state or in thrall of the cartels, perhaps a bit of both, as well as typical Mexican incompetence and laziness.

Gulf Cartel gunmen fired what are believed to be AK-47s or similar weapons at U.S. Border Patrol agents on the Rio Grande. None were injured.

The shooting took place early Friday morning just south of Fronton, Texas. The agents were not struck by the gunfire, however, their boat was hit several times. The U.S. Border Patrol RGV Sector Office confirmed the incident to Breitbart Texas and advised it would issue additional information throughout the day.

Mexican authorities responded to the area after they received notification from the U.S. government about a shooting just west of Los Guerra, a Tamaulipas law enforcement source revealed to Breitbart Texas. Mexican authorities were not able to find any gunmen but did find “signs of activity.”

[Gulf Cartel Shoots At U.S. Border Patrol Agents on Rio Grande, by Ildefonso Ortiz and Brandon Darby, Breitbart, August 9, 2019]

Sadly, it appears that Border Patrol Agents in their unarmed vessels (Agents are armed, but the boats do not have attached heavy weapons unlike Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and DPW boats), did not return fire, likely because such self-defense actions are prohibited by policy, not law.  Note that Texas law enforcement offices will fire across the border if necessary.

This is an opportunity for President Trump to rally the nation behind him and severely punish Mexico for allowing armed attacks on the United States from its borders.  There is no information that the Mexican Ambassador has been called to the State Department for this flagrant act of war and violation of the sovereignty of the United States.

It is time for Border Patrol boat units to be up-gunned, for riverine forces of the United States to be deployed to the Rio Grande, with orders to fire if fired upon, and for Special Forces units to be allowed to engage in strikes into the border region in Mexico, targeting cartel personnel and infrastructure.  Such action will end the Zerg Rush and help staunch the flow of illegal drugs.  Of course, the wall must be finished, but that can be done easily as well.  This is not rocket science, it’s been done before.  Time for President Trump to order the military to the border and make Mexico pay for their failures.

ICE SVU Fail

ICE SVU is in the news again.  ICE SVU is the moniker I have given one of the sub-components of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  Properly known as Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), ICE SVU is supposed to be the investigative function of immigration enforcement, supposedly concentrating on alien smuggling, work-site enforcement, benefit fraud, and various other customs related investigations.  However, as I warned President Trump in a posting at VDare, ICE SVU doesn’t like to do immigration enforcement, especially work-site enforcement.  [President Trump Will Have Foes In Immigration Bureaucracy—But Also Friends. They Can Help Him Win, by Federale, VDare, April 25, 2016]  I identified ICE SVU as one of the recalcitrant components of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that would resist his orders to increase immigration enforcement.  And my warnings were spot on.  ICE SVU leadership is insubordinate and a center of sabotage of his immigration enforcement strategy.

And, as if on schedule, ICE SVU tried another feel-good and so very rare work-site enforcement raid.  It was designed for the appearance of enforcement, a sort of boob-bait-for-bubbas.

U.S. immigration officials raided numerous Mississippi food processing plants Wednesday, arresting 680 mostly Latino workers in what marked the largest workplace sting in at least a decade.

[Largest ICE Raid In A Decade Nets 680 Arrests In Mississippi Food Processing Plants,   Associated Press/WGN9, August 7, 2019]

So far, so good.  A great big raid.  Of course, ICE SVU could have been doing many more smaller raids in many more States instead of wasting money transporting 600 ICE Agents and Officers to Mississippi for raids against four chicken plants.  How about 60 raids in different areas using 10 agents each?  That would have been more effective.

More telling though that ICE SVU is not serious about work-site enforcement is that the ICE SVU agents involved, this was all something new.

“I’ve never done anything like this,” Chris Heck, resident agent in charge of ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit in Jackson, told The Associated Press inside the hangar. “This is a very large worksite operation.”

So, the Resident Agent-In-Charge (RAC) for ICE SVU in Jackson, MS, has never been involved in a big work-site raid.  More likely is that he has never been involved in any work-site raid, much less an immigration arrest.  And this is telling concerning ICE SVU, they just don’t do immigration arrests.  This means that an employee of ICE SVU, created in 2003, has no immigration enforcement experience.  Likely Heck is either a legacy U.S. Customs Service (USCS) Special Agent who was brought into the new agency, ICE SVU, or an employee hired since 2003, and never was trained or assigned immigration enforcement work.  Worse yet, Heck was steadily advanced as a Special Agent in ICE SVU for at least 5 years, then worked at the journeyman level, a GS-1811-13 Special Agent before he qualified to be a first line supervisor, a Group Supervisor or RAC, both are at the GS-1811-14 pay level. So, for 8 years or more Chris Heck did no immigration enforcement.  That says that ICE SVU does not care about immigration enforcement.

Making matters worse, after arresting 680 illegal aliens, ICE SVU promptly released 300 of those illegal aliens, most to never be seen again.  They will fly to the wind.

Approximately 30 people detained Wednesday were released at the same site they were detained on “humanitarian grounds,” according to a press release issued Thursday by Mike Hurst, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi, and ICE.

Another 270 were released after being processed by Homeland Security Investigations on Wednesday. Those 270 were taken back to where they were initially detained, the release stated.

Wednesday afternoon, ICE spokesperson Bryan Cox said everyone taken into custody and detained was asked if they had children. Cox said at the time that everyone would be processed but “not everyone is going to be (permanently) detained.”

“You are going to have persons released,” he said. “ICE makes custody determination on a case-by-case basis based on the totality of their circumstances.”

According to the Thursday release, “all those detained yesterday were asked when they arrived at the processing center whether they had any children who were at school or child care and needed to be picked up.”

Agents “made cellphones available” so those detained could make child care arrangements, the release stated.

If a couple was detained with minor children at home, one of them would be released on “humanitarian grounds.” Single parents with minor children at home also were released.

“Based on these procedures, it is believed that all children were with at least one of their parents as of last night,” the release stated.

[MS ICE Raids: 300 Of The 680 Detainees Released, by Sarah Fowler, MSN News, August 8, 2019]

So, instead of spending time and money on deporting those arrested, ICE SVU bent over backward to release illegal aliens to take care of their children.  None of these 300 will later appear at their immigration hearings.  They will immediately leave the area, or, worse yet, obtain new fraudulent documents, and go back to work at their same employer, or another chicken processor in the area.

Sadly, this is the routine when ICE SVU releases illegal aliens.  And there is no need to do this.  There is no law that says illegal aliens who have children have a get out of jail free card. My sources tell me this catch-and-release of illegal aliens with children was instituted not by Barack Hussein Obama, but by Jorge Bush.  Imagine that, the Clinton Administration did not adopt this policy of a free ride for illegal aliens, but a Republican.  And President Trump’s ICE SVU is continuing it.

Also of importance.  ICE SVU does not want to be known as part of ICE.  Note photographs of the agents from ICE SVU, their raid vests say “Police HSI,” while the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE ERO), the other sub-component of ICE, has “Police ICE” on their raid vests.  This is because of orders from ICE SVU management to never use “ICE” branding on their raid attire.

ICE SVU Agent Who Doesn’t Want To Be Associated With ICE

Deportation Officers Not Ashamed Of ICE

Also of note, relatives and friends of illegal aliens gathered to support their fellow illegals, without molestation.

Workers filled three buses — two for men and one for women — at a Koch Foods Inc. plant in tiny Morton, 40 miles east of Jackson. They were taken to a military hangar to be processed for immigration violations. About 70 family, friends and residents waved goodbye and shouted, “Let them go! Let them go!” Later, two more buses arrived.

[‘Let Them Go!’: Largest US Immigration Raids In A Decade Net 680 Arrests, by Rogelio Solis and Jeff Amy,  Associated Press/USA Today, August 8, 2019]

In the old days of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), agents would have worked the crowd to find other illegal aliens outside a raided facility and would have gone to the homes of the arrested illegal aliens to arrest spouses.  My times have changed.

It is time for President Trump to order ICE SVU back into the work-site enforcement business full time, not Potemkin shows for the press.  Work-site enforcement should be an every day occurrence, not some huge, one time event, soon to be forgotten.  Furthermore, to discourage illegals, to follow Mitt Romney’s advice on self-deportation, no illegal should be released because they have children.  If an arrested illegal alien has kids, then Child Protective Services should be notified.  That will put fear into the hearts of illegals.  Which is how one frightens illegal aliens into self-deportation.  Fear is the mind killer.

The Face Of The Deep State Resistance In ICE SVU

Thomas Homan, now retired Acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), promised that under the Trump Administration all illegal aliens should fear arrest, and specifically stated that there would be a 400% increase in work-site enforcement which would include not just audits of employers of illegal aliens, but unlike under the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty, there would be arrests of the illegal aliens employed by scofflaw employers who use illegal alien labor.  Despite Homan’s very public orders to the Special Agents-in-Charge (SAC) of the component of ICE that is responsible for work-site enforcement, derisively referred to by this correspondent as ICE SVU for it’s strange obsession with sex crimes, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), is deliberately ignoring Homan’s orders, and doing their best to ensure that illegal aliens remain in the United States.  The first big ICE SVU work-site enforcement action resulted in a measly 20 arrests in a nation-wide raid of 7-11 stores.  In the old days, 20 arrests was the average number of arrests by one immigration agent just trolling the streets of Los Angeles for illegals, much less a targeted raid on a nation-wide employer of illegal aliens.  And none of those records obtained from 7-11 were used to track down their illegal alien employees at their homes and make arrests of those aliens and their family members.  This is telling of the attitude of ICE SVU.

And nothing is more telling than these statistics is the black heart of the backstabber.  Recently 19 former Special Agents of the now defunct U.S. Customs Service (USCS), one of the two agencies combined to create U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and ICE, and now all now SACs in ICE SVU, attacked President Donald John Trump and former Acting Director Homan for enforcing immigration law.  The backstabbers, the Dirty 19, are Special Agents-in-Charge of ICE SVU, but that is one part of two of the major components of ICE, the ill-named Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the other being Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).  Ill-named because HSI avoids any investigation related to the protection of the homeland from illegal aliens.  ICE SVU prefers pointless investigations into counterfeit Super Bowl merchandise rather than investigating illegal aliens, their employers, and their smugglers.

This correspondent first advised then candidate Donald J. Trump that ICE SVU would be one of the components of DHS that would be sabotaging immigration enforcement.

ICE SVU actively shirks its immigration enforcement responsibilities and has long been looking for a mission doing anything but immigration law enforcement.  I refer to it as ICE SVU because it has apparently decided to concentrate on child pornography and similar non-immigration offenses as its major investigative effort…

ICE HSI is dominated by legacy USCS Special Agents and managers who long ago purged most legacy INS Special Agents and managers from the agency.  Those that remain, such as agents assigned to perform worksite enforcement, basically do no work for the very generous pay that ICE HSI Special Agents receive.  I know one legacy INS agent assigned to worksite enforcement who has made no arrests and done no worksite raids in 8 years.

President Trump will have major problems with ICE HSI management and agents. Even current agents don’t want to do immigration work. They consider it beneath them, and they have little or no knowledge of immigration law.

[President Trump Will Have Foes In Immigration Bureaucracy—But Also Friends. They Can Help Him Win, by Federale, VDare, April 25, 2016]

Sadly, my predictions on the behavior of ICE SVU were point on.  ICE SVU is as much a #DeepState Resistance to the Trump Administration as the top leadership of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  One need not look further than the insubordinate reaction to orders to begin work-site enforcement by SAC Ryan Spradlin, the most prominent member of the Dirty 19 resisting President Trump, of the San Francisco Field Office of ICE SVU; Spradlin sent his agents out to “raid” employers of illegal aliens and managed to make no arrests in northern California, where over 1 million illegal aliens live and work.

Federal immigration agents raided 77 businesses in Northern California this week, demanding proof that their employees are legally allowed to work in the United States, officials said Thursday.

It was believed to be the largest such localized sweep of workplaces by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency since President Trump took office. ICE agents swept into nearly 100 7-Eleven stores nationwide last month and arrested 21 suspected undocumented immigrants.

Thomas Homan, the agency’s acting director, has called for a “400 percent increase” in such workplace operations.

ICE did not identify any of the businesses its agents visited in the Bay Area and the Sacramento region Monday through Wednesday. The businesses were served notices of inspection and given three working days to comply, and no immediate arrests were made.

[Immigration Agents Raid 77 Northern California Workplaces; No Arrests Reported, by  Hamed Aleaziz, SFGate, February 2, 2018]

These “raids” were a colossal failure, and likely a deliberate one at that.  ICE SVU has no interest in doing immigration enforcement, and more so with Spradlin who fancies himself a wannabee FBI agent, doing fancy investigations, not enforcing immigration law.

Asked in an interview this month whether HSI agents were mandated to make collateral arrests, Ryan Spradlin, the agency’s special agent in charge in San Francisco, said executive orders signed by President Trump had changed his agents’ ability to use “discretion” on the ground to not make arrests. But he said they still made case-by-case determinations…

“The Department of Justice has the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Homeland Security has Homeland Security Investigations,” Spradlin said. “We are in the business of public safety and national security, and a lot of folks don’t know that.”

[‘Collateral’ Immigration Arrests Threaten Key Crime Alliances, By Hamed Aleaziz, SFGate, April 28, 2017]

Spradlin came to ICE SVU from the legacy U.S. Customs Service (USCS), where he was a Special Agent before the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and is the son of a USCS Special Agent, obviously suckled at the mother’s teat of the rivalry between the legacy USCS and the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).  He has a distinct distaste for immigration enforcement, it is just not sexy. Spradlin, who has never made an immigration arrest and processed an arrested alien for removal, made certain his agents made no arrests despite orders from his boss, Thomas Homan, that arrests are back on the table in work-site enforcement.  Immigration enforcement is not like being an FBI agent and Spradlin wants to be like an FBI agent.  Note how he emphasized that his agents have “discretion” not to do their jobs.  That is telling us that Spradlin’s ICE SVU is more interested in not making immigration arrests, and the recent fake raids on employers of illegal aliens prove that Spradlin has no intention of doing immigration enforcement work in the future.  Two telling points concerning Spradlin and his distaste for immigration enforcement; there is only one agent assigned to do work-site enforcement in the San Francisco Field Office and the San Francisco ICE Office of the Chief Counsel (OCC)/Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA) have standing orders to all ICE SVU agents not to make immigration arrests without prior legal approval.  That is the attitude of the Resistance to the Trump immigration enforcement agenda in San Francisco, make no arrests.  In the old INS days, no agent needed permission from an attorney to make an arrest.

Spradlin laid down a marker to Homan and President Trump. He wants to play a Robert Mueller or Rod Rosenstein, daring President Trump to fire him.  This is the #DeepState playbook, sabotage the Trump Administration objectives on immigration enforcement from within the bureaucracy.  Ryan Spradlin is #TheResistance in ICE SVU.

Trump Administration Failing To Arrest Alien Smuggling Politicians, Terrorists, and Sanctuary Activists

The Trump Administration continues to allow the border to collapse and is failing to stop leftist who are openly smuggling aliens, obstructing arrests of illegal aliens, and stop terrorists from attacking the border.  It was almost as if the Trump Administration was conniving with the left to destroy America.  As if on cue,  the Trump Administration again allowed a United States Senator to smuggle aliens into the United States.

sal0830ronwyden.jpg20140829

Alien Smuggler And Chief Of The Border Ron Wyden

A pregnant Mexican woman suffering complications was told by immigration officers that they couldn’t process her family’s asylum claim at the U.S. border on Saturday before a U.S. senator intervened to persuade the officers to take the woman to a Texas hospital.

While visiting a migrant shelter Saturday, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said he grew concerned about a woman who was 38 weeks pregnant and suffering from preeclampsia and other complications. The senator and his staff decided to take the woman, her husband and 3-year-old son to a port of entry to make their asylum claim.

At the Paso del Norte Bridge linking Juarez and El Paso, the family approached two Customs and Border Protection officers, presented their identification and said they wanted to request asylum. They then heard the words that tens of thousands of asylum seekers have been told for more than a year at the U.S.-Mexico border: “We’re full,” a CBP officer told them.

Wyden, who had followed behind the family along with an entourage of staff members and friends from Oregon, then stepped forward and identified himself. He told the officers that Mexicans are exempt from the “metering” program CBP has used to strictly control the number of people allowed to request asylum at ports of entry. He also told the officers the woman was late term in her pregnancy and suffering complications.

The officers called a supervisor, who arrived minutes later, and allowed the family to go to the port of entry to make their asylum claim.

So, the Trump Administration has turned over control of our borders to a fat homosexual, Cory Booker, and Ron Wyden, neither of whom are in the Executive Branch.  U.S. Senators have no authority over admission decisions at our border, but they seem to be allowed to openly smuggle illegal aliens across our borders.

Similarly, the Trump Administration has failed to arrest Paul Sittenfield, a Cincinnatti City Councilman, who is organizing criminal gangs to interfere with the arrest of illegal aliens.

Paul Sittenfield, Planning To Obstruct ICE Raids

Cincinnati is expected to form a network aimed at helping immigrants and refugees who may be the target of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids.

Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld announced the proposed Rapid Response Network at a Thursday press conference.

The councilman filed a motion last week, signed by five other council members, to form the network, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Sittenfeld said he expects the measure to pass the first week of August.

The network is meant to help immigrants with legal responses to potential raids and provide assistance for families affected by detentions, among other provisions.

“If you pay your taxes, if you are raising your family here, if you are adding to the diversity of our neighborhoods — and all of our immigrant and refugee families are doing this — you’re absolutely a member of our community,” Sittenfeld said at Thursday’s announcement, according to the local outlet.

While this is supposed to be legal, the real action will be terrorists interfering with arrests, as occurred in Tennessee.

And the terrorist organizing continues for attacks on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) Agents arresting illegal aliens.  The terrorist group Antifa is openly organizing attacks on agents and officers.

Local and national organizers are working together to build 10 days of trainings and direct actions for the Border Resistance Convergence in El Paso, TX – September 1-10th. We are calling on affinity groups everywhere to come together and help us address US-funded genocide and local concentration camps.

When you come to this convergence you will be in Tigua, Raramuri, Piro, Suma and Manso territory. This convergence is being run by Indigenous & QTPOC (Queer, trans, people of color) leadership and anyone who passively or aggressively disrespects that will be asked to leave.

This is more failure by the Trump Administration to stop Antifa terrorism and protect the border.  The Trump Administration continues to refuse to prosecute the organizers of the border rush for some unknown reason, most likely Javanka and LadyboyDACA.  The Trump Administration appears to be collapsing before the border onslaught and the open defiance of immigration laws.  What is to be done?
