#ICESVU Brings Back The Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty

ICE SVU has decided to let a crisis go to waste.  Instead it has decided to reimpose the Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty and the Morton Memos , which were ostensibly about changing enforcement priorities by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The memorandum by ICE head John Morton stating that ICE will only arrest certain, but not all, criminal aliens, i.e. legal and illegal aliens who have been convicted of a crime that makes them deportable. All other illegal aliens are of the table.  This is part of the Deep State Resistance to enforcing immigration law.  The Dirty 19 are undoubted overjoyed, no more work-site enforcement or other immigration arrests.  The 500 ICE SVU agents assigned to help roundups in Sanctuary Cities are probably already celebrating not having to do any work.  It is all sound and fury signifying nothing, or boob bait for bubbas, choose your analogy, all to fool the American people that our immigration laws were being enforced.  It was an administrative amnesty and the return of catch-and-release.

And it is back:

To ensure the welfare and safety of the general public as well as officers and agents in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic response, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will temporarily adjust its enforcement posture beginning today, March 18, 2020. ICE’s highest priorities are to promote life-saving and public safety activities.

ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) will focus enforcement on public safety risks and individuals subject to mandatory detention based on criminal grounds. For those individuals who do not fall into those categories, ERO will exercise discretion to delay enforcement actions until after the crisis or utilize alternatives to detention, as appropriate.

[Updated ICE statement on COVID-19, ICE Press Release, March 18, 2020]

Discretion means no more arrests.  And there will be no work-site enforcement by ICE SVU, also known as Homeland Security Investigations.

Homeland Security Investigations will continue to carry out mission critical criminal investigations and enforcement operations as determined necessary to maintain public safety and national security. Examples include investigations into child exploitation, gangs, narcotics trafficking, human trafficking, human smuggling, and continued participation on the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Note neither work-site enforcement nor immigration benefit fraud will be investigated or arrests made.  How did this get by Ken The Knife?  This is bad, as there will be tremendous pressure to never get back to the rather modest increase in immigration enforcement.

Worse yet, this is all about the China Virus that is only killing the very old and those with preexisting serious medical conditions, mostly respiratory conditions.  My position is that the China Virus is being deliberately pushed and a panic encouraged to remove President Trump and end immigration enforcement.

More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.

After deaths from the virus reached more than 2,500, with a 150% increase in the past week, health authorities have been combing through data to provide clues to help combat the spread of the disease.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte’s government is evaluating whether to extend a nationwide lockdown beyond the beginning of April, daily La Stampa reported Wednesday. Italy has more than 31,500 confirmed cases of the illness.

[99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness, Italy Says, By Tommaso Ebhardt, Chiara Remondini, and Marco Bertacche, Bloomberg, March 18, 2020]

And it is only the old as well as already sick who are dying.  There is no need for the panic and economic collapse.

The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions.

And the cry for ending enforcement was quite open.  Who acquiesced to this lobbying by the illegal alien lobby?  Chad Wolf?  Who runs DHS, the illegal alien lobby?

Second, fear of immigration enforcement may deter immigrants from seeking health care or working with public health authorities. Under guidelines from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), health care settings are “sensitive zones” in which enforcement actions should not normally be conducted. Even so, since President Trump took office there have been highly publicized cases of individuals being detained by immigration agents on their way to seeking care. As a result, many undocumented immigrants have forgone medical appointments.

In an epidemic, that can have dire consequences for public health as those who are undiagnosed and untreated are particularly likely to spread the infection.

[Trump’s Immigration Policies Will Make The Coronavirus Pandemic Worse, By Wendy E. Parmet, Stat News, March 4, 2020]

It is almost as if this was planned all along.  More likely though is that Trump opponents are following Rahm Emmanuel’s advice, never let a crisis go to waste.  Well, the Democrats, Open Borders Advocates, and nation busters are taking advantage.  Why is President Trump allowing this?  Where is Ken The Knife?

 

 

#ICESVU Hates Men, Especially White Men

Besides being hating doing immigration enforcement work, ICE SVU also hates straight, white men.  ICE SVU says it has too many white men and wants to stop hiring men and only hire women, especially black women.

A few months ago, your humble correspondent saw @ICEgovCareers push position announcements for hiring Deportation Officers and Special Agents, but for women only.  I apologize for not writing on the subject at that time, but ICE SVU continues to push for women in its career offerings, careers that generally only men are interested in.

First, a story from 2018.

The government’s leading immigration enforcement agency wants to hire more women to fill its ranks of criminal investigators and deportation officers, and it is undertaking a female-only hiring campaign to do so.

In a pair of announcements posted Tuesday to the federal USAJOBS website, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) opened a public hiring period for entry-level jobs in Enforcement and Removal Operations, the group that locates and deports removable aliens, and Homeland Security Investigations, the division that conducts criminal investigations into federal crimes with a nexus to the border.

Such announcements are a common way for federal law enforcement agencies to bring on classes of new recruits, but ICE’s latest postings come with a catch: men are not allowed to apply.

The single-sex hiring push does not stem from a specific job function that requires more female personnel. Rather, the women-only vacancy announcement was posted in an effort to make ICE’s gender composition more closely resemble that of the broader workforce, according to agency spokesman Matthew Bourke.

“To meet its mission requirements and have a workforce more reflective of the civilian labor force, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement plans to increase its efforts to attract, hire, and retain female law enforcement personnel,” Bourke told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email.

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which oversees all federal civilian hiring, gave ICE the green light to post the women-only announcements, Bourke added. He did not elaborate when asked about any specific occupational needs that may have prompted the single-sex job postings.

[ICE Posts Women-Only Job Announcement In Push For Gender Equality, by Will Racke, The Daily Caller, June 27, 2018]

You would think that President Trump would have stopped something like this, but no dice.  The Deep State saboteurs at ICE SVU don’t care about the mission, but only on attacking men, who are more likely to push for immigration enforcement.  Note that many of the Dirty 19 were women., disproportionately so.

And it was not just for 2018.  Here is my tweet on the issue:

Here is the job announcement for female only Deportation Officers and here is the announcement for women only Special Agents.

And it is current policy that ICE SVU only wants women:

And if you did not get the hint than men are not wanted, take a gander at how ICE SVU advertises for other positions, apparently only women and blacks are welcome:

 

And here is the reason ICE SVU wants women, they don’t do immigration work, only Sex Police work.

Let me give you some insight into women in law enforcement, in general, most women should not be there.  That is not to say that some have worked out well.  Women are especially bad for patrol work and are better as investigators, and the juvenile squad and sexual assault detail are where they work best.  I can say that as an investigator with the Federal government, an 1811 classification for those in the know, I have worked with several great investigators, a couple of which were down for taking suspects down, but I can tell you that most are not in for the arrest part of law enforcement.

One time while I was working with an FBI female agent, we were looking for a suspect with a long criminal history, and her inner female came out.  We had an arrest team of five agents and officers, but we had to break up and check out some addresses.  I paired up with the FBI female agent.  We went to one of the addresses, and as we discussed our strategy, she said “What do we do if he is here?”  I said we will arrest him.  That is women in a nutshell in law enforcement, when it comes to the physical stuff, they don’t work out.  Here’s a video of a female cop being completely useless in making an arrest.  It is like she is playing patty cake with the suspect.

I can also say that in immigration work women can be great, especially if they have a cultural connection to the alien, as the alien usually accepts anything the female offices says as true, especially if she is an older Asian women.  In this case the Asian respect for older persons will cause them confess or obey because of the culture.

But sadly, that is the goal of ICE SVU.  Their goal is to feminize law enforcement, make it less threatening and less effective, more sympathetic to the aliens and to concentrate on the “soft” cases like child porn and “rescuing” illegal alien prostitutes.

If the Trump Administration wants ICE SVU in the trenches making arrests, it does not need to illegally discriminate against men.

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

Wise words from Rahm Emmanuel.  The Trump Administration is being offered that chance on the border and the Deep State.  The Administration appears to be moving to closing the borders, a closure with Canada has already been announced, and we will soon find out how many employers in the northern United States, Michigan especially, rely on illegal alien labor from Canada.  And it looks like a Mexican border closure is going to happen as well, including push-back of illegals crossing the border.  But another opportunity is presenting itself, an opportunity to strike at the Deep State.  The saboteurs in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA), the ICE attorneys who are supposed to prosecute immigration cases, but seem more interested in throwing cases for the alien, are illegally talking to the press and the kritarchs in the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) are conducting an illegal strike.  Time for President Trump to treat kritarchs Ashley Tabaddor and Dana Leigh Marks like a PATCO striker.

It is illegal to strike in the Federal government, including an organized sick-out, and participants can be fired, but ICE OPLA attorneys are looking to set up a strike because of the China virus.

The Department of Justice “has made it clear in recent days that they do not value the health and safety of their own employees, much less the health and safety of DHS counsel, respondents, and respondents attorneys,” said one ICE prosecutor, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they could not comment publicly. “It’s pretty shocking to see. I hope they do the right thing and shut down the courts immediately for the welfare of all involved.”

[Immigration Judges Across The US Are Staying Home After The Coronavirus Hit Courtrooms, by Melissa Segura, BuzzFeed, March 18, 2010]

Happily though, for the Trump Administration, the union for the EOIR kritarchs has apparently organized a sick-out.

Immigration judges in New York and San Francisco stayed home from work Tuesday, and their union announced a judge in Denver had COVID-19 symptoms and an Atlanta attorney tested positive.

In immigration courtrooms in New York and San Francisco Tuesday, large numbers of judges stayed home from work as their union announced that a judge in Denver had symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, and in Atlanta an attorney tested positive for the virus — just one day after he appeared in a crowded courtroom.

The move comes as many parties on opposite sides in the nation’s sprawling immigration court system have come together to demand that the Department of Justice temporarily halt court proceedings amidst the global pandemic — something the agency has thus far refused to do.

This is an opportunity to fire each and everyone of  the kritarchs that participated in this illegal sick-out.  And an old saboteur is back in the news again, Dana Leigh Marks.

n-marks-large570

Kritarch Dana Leigh Marks

Dana Marks, a 65-year-old judge in San Francisco and former president of the union, said she stayed out Tuesday after California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered that those 65 and older should stay in their homes.

She said she and everyone else in the court system had “been unnecessarily placed in a quandary: do we come to work as is expected,” she asked, “or do we follow the local guidance from health department officials?” She added: “We are very much between a rock and a hard place because DOJ has not closed the courts as we have repeatedly demanded.”

I hope she was one of the kritarchs who falsely called in sick.  It is illegal to use leave, especially sick leave, as a cover for an illegal strike.  It is also a crime to falsely use sick leave in general.  Kritarchs who do this can be prosecuted for theft of government monies, Title 18 United States Code Section 641, Theft of Public Money, and making a false statement on a sick leave request form, Standard Form SF-71, Request For Leave Or Approved Absence, a violation of Title 18 USC 1001, False Statements.

The Chinese Virus is further an opportunity as the Trump Administration is looking at a southern border closure of some sort, including push-back of illegal entrants without any proceedings.

The Trump administration is reportedly planning to turn back all asylum-seekers at both the northern and southern borders over concerns regarding the coronavirus outbreak.

Four administration officials told The New York Times on Tuesday that the policy would apply to asylum-seekers and any other migrant seeking to cross the border illegally.

Ports of entry would remain open to American citizens, green card holders and some foreigners with proper documentation as well as commercial traffic, according to the report.

Under the new policy, which the officials said would be announced within 48 hours, migrants crossing the border between the points of entry would be shuttled back to Mexico if they are crossing the southern border and would not be held for any amount of time in the U.S.

The officials said the policy is intended to prevent a coronavirus outbreak inside detention facilities, which they feared could infect large numbers of Border Patrol agents, thus softening border defenses.

[Trump Admin To Begin Turning Back All Undocumented Immigrants, Asylum-Seekers At Borders: Report, by Tal Axelrod, The Hill, March 18, 2020]

Never let a crisis go to waste.  President Trump has an opportunity to both strike at the Deep State that is sabotaging immigration enforcement and shut down the border to illegal aliens and bypass the deportation process by pushing back all illegal entrants.  As Nike says, Just Do It!

 

Denaturalizations Expose Rampant Asylum Fraud

The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently announced a specialized office of attorneys to deal with denaturalization, which mistakenly occurs in Federal District Courts.  Legally, it should be done administratively by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), but given current constraints, this is a good move.  And close on the heels of this new DOJ office are two cases of asylum applicants who were able to fraudulently obtain asylum, then legal permanent residence, and then were naturalized.  Natasha Pierre, Munia Parvin, and Lilla Haiddar were from different countries, Haiti, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan respectively, and unrelated other than that all used asylum fraud to enter and remain in the United States, and in Haiddar’s case, even work for the United States government.

Both have are being denaturalized, but at an extreme cost to the government because the government itself refused to use all appropriate actions to determine identity and review the underlying asylum claims.  Most asylum cases are fraudulent, but it is a widely used method to gain permanent residency and later citizenship.  Asylum is not about protecting the oppressed, but just another method of immigration so common that fraud is unremarkable and little hindrance to the perpetrators and the Treason Bar that supports them.

The Face Of Asylum Fraud And USCIS’ Failure To Stop Fraud

First, Haiddar, she lied blatantly to the government in her asylum claim, despite being known to the government under that name.

Prosecutors say the Afghan native flew to the U.S. in 2001 on a temporary transit visa and was supposed to leave for Canada the same day, but never did. Instead, she applied for asylum under a different name, Lilla Haiddar, and told a false story of how she made it to New York, prosecutors said.

Haiddar told immigration officials she flew from Pakistan to Mexico and then was secreted across the border into the U.S. with the help of an uncle to escape oppression in her native country. Haiddar listed two different names and dates of birth on U.S. documents, court records show.

“We have no idea who this woman is,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany H. Eggers told a magistrate judge during an April 2019 detention hearing.

[After Nearly 20 Years In America, This Woman Will Be Stripped Of Her U.S. Citizenship For Lying On Forms, by Kevin Krause and Dianne Solis, Dallas News, March 10, 2020]

Then we have Pierre, who came from Haiti and applied twice for asylum; she was denied once, then reapplied under an assumed name and was approved.

U.S. District Judge James D. Whittemore sentenced Natasha Pierre (46, Davenport), a/k/a Elsie Petitfrere, to six months in federal prison for obtaining U.S. citizenship through false and misleading representations to U.S. immigration authorities. She pleaded guilty on August 30, 2017. The Court also entered an order denaturalizing Pierre and stripping her of her United States citizenship; she is now subject to deportation to Haiti.

According to her plea agreement and evidence presented in Court, Pierre first applied for asylum protection to remain in the United States in 1993, claiming that she had entered the United States from Haiti and feared persecution and arrest if she returned there. In June 1995, the INS rejected her application and ordered her to appear before an immigration judge for possible deportation proceedings. In July 1995, she failed to appear as directed and the court ordered her removal from the United States. The immigration judge also entered a warrant for her arrest and deportation.

While her case was still pending before the immigration court, Pierre assumed the new identity of Elsie Petitfrere and filed for legal protection and permanent resident status in the United States using this new identity and a different set of biographical data. In 2012, she applied for U.S. citizenship, and Petitfrere ultimately became a U.S. citizen on September 11, 2012.

[Second Woman Sentenced And Denaturalized For Obtaining U.S. Citizenship Through Lies, DOJ Press Release, December 27, 2017]

Then there is a third fraudulent asylum claimant, Parvin, who did the same thing, apply for and denied asylum, created a new identity, and re-applied.

U.S. District Judge Steven D. Merryday has sentenced Munia Parvin, a/k/a Zarrin Hoque (46, Sarasota), to 6 months in federal prison for obtaining U.S. citizenship through false and misleading representations to U.S. immigration authorities. She pleaded guilty on September 26, 2017. The Court also entered an order denaturalizing Parvin and stripping her of her United States citizenship; she is now subject to deportation to Bangladesh.

According to her plea agreement and evidence presented in court, Parvin first applied for asylum protection to remain in the United States in 1993, claiming that she had entered the United States from Bangladesh and feared persecution and arrest if she returned there. In November 1996, the INS rejected her application and ordered her to appear before an immigration judge for possible deportation proceedings. In December 1997, the immigration court allowed Parvin to depart from the United States by a set date and when she failed to do so, entered a warrant for her arrest and removal from the country.

While her case was still pending before the immigration court, Parvin assumed the new identity of Zarrin Hoque and filed for legal protection and permanent resident status in the United States using this new name and a different set of biographical data. In 2012, she applied for U.S. citizenship and ultimately became a U.S. citizen on June 4, 2012. In her paperwork and application for citizenship, Hoque denied the use of prior names, denied having been subject to an order of deportation, and denied lying to immigration authorities. Photographic and fingerprint evidence later established that Hoque and Parvin were the same person and that Parvin had lied on several parts of her citizenship application.

[Woman Sentenced And Denaturalized For Obtaining U.S. Citizenship By Lying To Officials, DOJ Press Release, December 13, 2017]

Here we have it, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Refugee, Asylum and International Operations Directorate, approved completely fictional claims in both all three cases.  Of five separate fraudulent applications, USCIS approved three of five.  That is not good statistics.  Worse yet, in two cases USCIS had the fingerprints and photographs of the claimants, yet apparently did not compare names and photographs to find a match.  Worse yet, USCIS denied then approved the same basic story and obviously verified no part of the second claims in those two cases.   It appears that there are some Deep State saboteurs in the asylum office who are willing and able to approve facially fraudulent claims.  Also of note, USCIS asylum office has a policy of not do in-country fraud investigations, to include not even verifying the claimed identity of asylum applicants.

Worse yet again, USCIS asylum office has an investigative tool that it refuses to use that would stop asylum and other immigration fraud in its tracks, the polygraph.  In my 28 year law enforcement career, this was a very useful and effective tool.  But USCIS refuses to use it across the board; another example of the Deep State supporting widespread immigration fraud.  But this should be no surprise, the Deep State in the asylum office is especially hostile to direction from the Trump Administration.

U.S. asylum officers slammed President Trump’s policy of forcing migrants to remain in Mexico while they await immigration hearings in the United States, urging a federal appeals court Wednesday to block the administration from continuing the program. The officers, who are directed to implement the policy, said it is threatening migrants’ lives and is “fundamentally contrary to the moral fabric of our Nation.”

The labor union representing asylum officers filed a friend-of-the-court brief that sided with the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups challenging Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols program, which has sent 12,000 asylum-seeking migrants to Mexico since January. The policy aims to deter migrants from coming to the United States and to keep them out of the country while courts weigh their claims.

[U. S. Asylum Officers Say Trump’s ‘Remain In Mexico’ Policy Is Threatening Migrants’ Lives, Ask Federal Court To End It, By Maria Sacchetti, WaPo, June 27, 2019]

It is time to shut down the asylum cadre and replace them with fully trained and experienced immigration officers.  Instead reassign real immigration officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection who are on disability or light duty to take up asylum applications and send others on detail assignment to adjudicate asylum applications.  The seditious Deep State in USCIS should be forced out, nor allowed to hire more in the same vein.

No other evidence of Deep State sabotage is the illegal public statements by USCIS employees attacking the completely legal asylum policies of the Trump Administration:

I have proudly served in the United States Asylum Officer Corps since 1992, one year after its creation. Prior to that, I served for many years as a case worker, program manager and policy analyst with various non-governmental organizations responsible for refugee protection, resettlement and humanitarian assistance in the United States and abroad (Afghanistan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand)…

Today’s hearing shines critical Congressional light on the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) “Remain in Mexico” Policy rolled out by the Trump administration this year. I expect my copanelists to produce significant evidence demonstrating why MPP is an unmitigated disaster for everyone involved. My testimony focuses on how MPP is affecting – and hurting – my fellow Asylum Officers, who must either carry out orders and run the program they reasonably believe violate the law and endanger asylum seekers or leave their jobs.

Time for a purge of USCIS asylum office.  These Deep State saboteurs hate the historic American nation and want to flood the country with refugees from the Third World.  They are not government professionals doing their job, they have an agenda, which is facilitating fraud.  I wonder of Michael Knowles approved any of the above asylum applications?

Arrest Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Chicago is a war zone, Black crime is rampant and dozens die on most weekends.  However, the Black lesbian Mayor of Chiraq, Lori Lightfoot, is more concerned about protecting illegal aliens from arrest.  And by protecting, she does not mean just not cooperating with immigration enforcement efforts and with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),  but actively interfering with Federal officials executing their duty to enforce Federal law.  There is where we make an important legal distinction.  While the Federal government may not commandeer a State official to execute Federal law, similarly, a State official may not interfere with the enforcement of Federal law, nor may a State commit a Federal crime.  A State may say it will not get involved, but if it gets involved, it is subject to legal liabilities.  And Lightfoot has crossed that clear legal boundary.

ap20071776692207 Lesbian Criminal Lori Lightfoot

In response to an illegal alien who was released by Chicago Police Department after an arrest for theft who then went on to rape a child.

In an interview with Fox News this week, the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ripped into Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for her response to the sexual assault of a 3-year-old girl, allegedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant who had been sprung from custody by the city’s sanctuary policies.

The Democratic mayor had attempted to shift the blame to ICE in the aftermath.

“I think it’s the height of hypocrisy,” acting ICE Director Matthew Albence told Fox News. “I can tell you, I’ve been firsthand trying to work with the city of Chicago for the better part of a decade to get them to cooperate with us so we can get criminals off the streets.”

[ICE Chief Scorches Chicago Mayor For Glib Response To Latest Sanctuary City Horror Crime, by Adam Shaw, Fox News, March 13, 2020]

Thankfully, the low IQ Lightfoot admits to the purpose of not providing information to ICE, she wants to interfere with the identification and arrest of illegal aliens.  That is a Federal crime; a violation of Title 18 United States Code (USC) Section 1505 Obstruction of Proceedings, in the case of deportation orders from the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), Title 18 USC 1509, Obstruction of Court Orders, and, in the case of illegal aliens who have committed Federal criminal violations, a violation of Title 18 USC 1510, Obstruction of Criminal Investigations.

But Lightfoot, asked about the policies that prevented the man from being removed from the country long ago, stood by the policies and shifted the blame to ICE.

“They’re critical because we have said very clearly we are a welcoming city, a sanctuary city. Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business,” she said when asked about the case.

And that’s affected their ability to conduct immigration raids across the city. But that’s exactly our intention. We have to make sure that our police department is seen as a legitimate force in all our communities,” she said, before saying she is open to federal partnerships but only “in a way that is consistent with our values as a city.”

That is what is called a confession in the law enforcement business.  She quite thankfully admitted to the essential elements of the above crimes, including the most important, intent.  Now Mayor Lightfoot and any member of her administration and the Chicago Police Department who implemented any policy of not providing information to ICE with the intent of obstructing immigration raids, is now liable, including the additional offense of conspiracy, Title 18 USC Section 371, Conspiracy.

So, now is the time to arrest Lightfoot and make an example of her.

Yes, Mr. President, You Can Shoot Rockers

No, not the music aficionados, but the Mexicans and others who throw rocks at Border Patrol Agents (BPA), or anyone else.  Border violence is in the news again.  As I said two years ago when this first came up, LadyDACA, Kirsten Nielsen, and LadyboyDACA, Kevin McAleenan, lied about the legal response by BPA or any other Federal, State, or local law enforcement officer, to being attacked by a person throwing a rock. [Mr. President, You Can Shoot Rockers, by Federale, Federale Blog, November 4, 2018]  Just as LadyDACA lied, so did John Kelly and James Mattis about Posse Comitatus.   There is a Deep State and it is very active.  Sadly, President Trump keeps appointing these saboteurs.

Nielsen and her top aides, who were traveling to New York for meetings and had watched Trump’s remarks on Fox News, were horrified. The president had just suggested, in comments carried live on TV, that American soldiers had license to shoot to kill migrants at the border. Once again, they dropped everything to head off a presidentially created crisis. Nielsen frantically asked her staff to find the CBP use of force policy and send it over to the White House immediately. Someone had to show it to Trump and get him to walk back his comments right away, she said. Kevin McAleenan, the CBP chief, called DHS lawyers to discuss the policy. The rules were very clear. They stated that DHS personnel “may use deadly force only when necessary, that is, when the officer/agent has a reasonable belief that the subject of such force poses an imminent danger of serious physical injury or death to the officer/agent or to another person.” If migrants were throwing rocks, it would have to be met with commensurate nonlethal force—not live ammunition from rifles, as the president had suggested.

[Disloyal Kelly And Mattis Refused To Let Trump Use Troops To Defend Border, by James Fulford, VDare, March 11, 2020]

The use of force by law enforcement, and specifically the use of deadly force, is governed by the Supreme Court decision, Tennessee v. Gardner.  The case held that a Tennessee statute that authorized deadly force to prevent the escape of a felon was unconstitutional and the decision established the standard that a law enforcement officer may only use deadly force to protect himself or others from a threat of deadly force or force that may cause great bodily harm.  The U.S. Border Patrol (USBP), as well as other Federal, State, and local agencies, use that as the basis of their use of force policies.  Here are the Use-of-Force guidelines for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2004.  The standard is deadly force may be used by an officer or agent when that officer or agent has a reasonable belief that there is an imminent danger of death or great bodily injury.

From the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) policy:

Authorized Officers/Agents may use deadly force only when necessary, that is, when the officer/agent has a reasonable belief that the subject of such force poses an imminent danger of serious physical injury or death to the officer/agent or to another person.

a. Serious Physical Injury – Injury which creates a substantial risk of death or
which causes serious disfigurement, serious impairment of health or serious
loss or impairment of the function of any bodily organ or structure or involves
serious concussive impact to the head.

[Use of Force Policy, Guidelines and Procedures Handbook, by CBP, May, 2014]

Pay special attention to the lettered subparagraph, that specifically covers attacks by use of deadly missiles, i.e. rocks and other hard objects, commonly thrown by Mexicans and others attacking BPAs and Customs and Border Protection Officers (CBPO) who work at the land border.

And this is not a new issue, as well as one of controversy.  It is completely legal for agents and officers to shoot those attacking them with rocks.  Rocks thrown by Mexicans have even taken down Border Patrol helicopters.  [Violence Against The Border Patrol: Whose Side Is Obama On?, by Federale, VDare, June 27, 2014]

Remember, a rock killed the Philistine giant, Goliath.  Rocks are deadly.

injuredman2

Border Patrol Agent victim of rocking

Rocks can kill or cause great bodily injury.  That is the legal standard for use of deadly force.  So, LadyDACA and LadyboyDACA lied to President Trump about shooting rock throwers, rockers in the Border Patrol parlance.

But Barack Hussein Obama did not like it that Border Patrol Agents were shooting rockers, so his administration tried to prosecute BPAs who shot rockers.  They, and the Trump Administration, indicted and tried a BPA, Lonnie Swartz, three times in an effort to protect illegal aliens.  Swartz was found not guilty or had a hung jury in each attempt to railroad him.  Border Patrol use of deadly force has always been a complaint from the left and they are always enraged that illegal aliens are getting shot for attacking BPAs with rocks.

The good news is that the Supreme Court has decided on the issue, at least in civil cases, that aliens outside the United States have no way to sue law enforcement officers who are engaged in cross border shootings.

A deeply divided Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the family of a Mexican teen shot and killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent cannot seek damages because of the border that was between them.

The justices ruled 5-4 that Sergio Adrian Hernández Guereca, 15, lacked constitutional protection against the use of excessive force because he was in Mexico. Had he been in Texas with Border Patrol agent Jesus Mesa, his family would have had a claim.

Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion and was joined by the court’s four other conservatives. The four liberal justices dissented.

“A cross-border shooting claim has foreign relations and national security implications,” Alito said. “In addition, Congress has been notably hesitant to create claims based on allegedly tortious conduct abroad.”

[Supreme Court Denies Mexican Family’s Damages Claim For Cross-Border Shooting, by Richard Wolf, USAToday, February 25, 2020]

So, there you have it Mr. President.  You, the U.S. military, and Federal law enforcement officers can shoot rockers.  It is completely legal.  The Deep State lied to you, just as I told Stephen Miller, the bureaucrats are lying to you.  Don’t believe them.

 

Criminal Interference With Immigration Enforcement Escalating

Resistance, often with violence, is escalating by illegal aliens and their supporters  to immigration enforcement actions.  Sadly, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is not escalating in kind with arrests of those who interfere with Federal officers, a violation of Title 18 United States Code Section 111, Impeding Federal Officers.  While ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) is happily and figuratively spitting on local jurisdictions who prohibit immigration arrests in State and local courthouses, criminal groups are actively interfering with those arrests, and are claiming some success in preventing arrests.

Immigration advocates and public defenders from San Francisco, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and Alameda Counties gathered in front of San Francisco’s Hall of Justice on Monday to condemn arrests made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers outside California courthouses in the past two weeks.

“We’re not gonna put up with you anymore,” said attorney Renee Saucedo from the Graton Day Labor Center regarding the ICE arrests. “You’re a bunch of immoral people and we don’t want you.”

On March 3, Alberto Uc Ponce, 43, was arrested by ICE agents only steps away from the site of today’s press conference while on his way to a court hearing. He is currently incarcerated in an ICE Detention Center in Bakersfield, according to his lawyer, Emi Maclean.

But terrorist groups like the Santa Clara Rapid Response Network are crowing that they were able to use government officials to interfere with arrests and are claiming one success.

Santa Clara County officials fought multiple incidents in the recent weeks as well. The Rapid Response Network “verified and confirmed four attempts by ICE officers to arrest community members attending their court hearings,” said Luis Angel Reyes Savalza, the attorney coordinator for Santa Clara County Rapid Response Network. He said that in all four cases, ICE agents “lacked judicial warrants, as required by California law.”

“In one occasion, our network legal observer showed up and verified the ICE violations until the officers departed the court premises without making a single arrest,” he said. “That day, our community won.”

It is disconcerting that an ICE ERO Deportation Officer allowed a terrorist to interfere with his duties and did not arrest that criminal and the illegal alien.

Worse yet, illegal aliens no longer fear arrest and actively resist arrest of other illegal aliens.  In Flatbush, NYC, once predominately black and now dominated by illegal aliens, ICE ERO arrested an illegal alien at her place of employment.  Usually in such cases, the the other illegals run, but instead they stayed this time to interfere with the arrest.

Early last Sunday, March 1, ICE agents entered a local restaurant in Flatbush as the staff was preparing for the day ahead. They were looking for Maria.

They found her in the basement of La Cabaña restaurant, 1062 Flatbush Avenue, just off Beverley Road, pepper-sprayed her as well as other staff and the manager, a coworker recounted at a press conference organized outside the business earlier today. Maria was taken into custody.

Now one does not know for certain that the other employees were illegal aliens, but most employees of restaurants who speak Spanish in New York, and elsewhere, are illegal.  And from the videos on Twitter all were Hispanic, and one employee who was videoing the arrest was screeching in a high pitched voice that the video was going to be on Telemundo.

Here are the Twitter videos, but the unusual thing is that other illegals did not run, but remained threatening and menacing the Deportation Officers.  Sadly, the DOs did not make any arrests of those other illegals, nor for interfering.

 

Things will get worse.  Time for ICE to stamp this out with raids, checkpoints, and sweeps to make illegal aliens afraid again.
