Obama Appointee United States Attorney Protecting Antifa Terrorists

The first case in the Antifa terrorist riots in Portland, OR, aided by the Mayor of Portland, against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Enforcement and Removal Operations (ICE ERO) offices is in.  The rioter, an apparent tranny, Cole Holland Buford, identified in the article as a woman, you be the judge, was given a mere six months probation.  More shocking, Mr. Buford was allowed to plea to a misdemeanor, rather than forced to defend himself at a felony trial.

A protester who spit at federal officers and tried to kick them as they moved in to arrest her during a July 9 demonstration outside Portland’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building was sentenced Monday to six months of probation.

Cole Holland Buford, 22, was on speaker phone from Houston, where Buford is attending Houston Community College.

In November, Buford pleaded guilty to simple assault, a misdemeanor.

Nice Beard There Little “Miss” Antifa


More evidence that the fix was in to protect Little Mister Antifa, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon (USAODO) agreed to the softy finding of the U.S. Probation Office recommending the probation only sentence.  There is no obligation for the U.S. Attorney’s Office to accept any sentencing recommendation from the Probation Office, so if there was motivation for a harsher sentence, that would have been possible if the USAODO had been motivated.  But clearly they were not, they just wanted to let the tranny off with less than a slap on the wrist.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta accepted the probationary sentence jointly recommended by a prosecutor and defense lawyer after finding Buford had demonstrated remorse and apologized for her actions.

And if the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon rings a bell, it is headed by Obama appointee Billy Williams who is a Deep State Resister to Trump Administration policies.  He was the man who decided to protect a local judge, Monica Herranz, who helped an illegal alien escape arrest.  Williams, renominated by President Trump at the instance of Sleepy Jeff, refused to prosecute Herranz.  Similarly, Williams did nothing during the long hot summer in Portland.  He refused to aggressively prosecute the rioters interfering with Federal law enforcement, refused to prosecute the Mayor who ordered the police to ignore attacks on ICE employees, and basically kept a low profile rather than publicly announcing that all the rioters would be punished to the full extent of the law.  Williams also has refused to protect the rights of normal Oregonians in the face of massive rioting by Antifa in Portland.


Deep State Democrat Resistor Billy Williams

Sadly, President Trump and the Acting Attorney General have done nothing about the resistance in the Department of Justice.  Time to fire Williams and get a real prosecutor in.


Arrest Gavin Newsom and Bill De Blasio

Recently the newly inaugurated Governor of California, Gavin Newsom and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that both will provide a medical insurance program for adult illegal aliens.  Both jurisdictions had previously provided such benefits to illegal alien minors.  Such acts are illegal.  While it is not, at least for public appearance sakes, illegal to provide emergency medical treatment to illegal aliens, it is illegal to provide illegal aliens with a benefit program that encourages them to enter or to remain in the United States.  Such programs do both, encourage new illegal immigration and encourages illegal aliens already present to remain in the United States.  This is a violation of Title 8 United States Code Section 1324, Bringing In And Harboring Certain Aliens, specifically sections (iv) and (v).

(iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or
(v) (I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or
(II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts

[Title 8 United States Code, Legal Information Institute, undated]

First, Newsom, who went even further, offering California as a sanctuary to any illegal alien.

California’s new governor is promising the most populous state will be a “sanctuary to all who seek it” in a direct affront to President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom challenged the Trump administration repeatedly as he was sworn in to office Monday, particularly on immigration.

[California Governor Newsom Vows ‘Sanctuary To All Who Seek It’ In Inauguration Speech, by Associated Press, KCAL, January 7, 2019]

Then in one of his first official acts, he extended welfare benefits to illegal alien adults in California, including the illegal alien who killed a police officer and those illegal aliens who tried to help him escape.

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced sweeping proposals to tackle the state’s healthcare needs shortly after taking office on Monday, outlining a dramatic Medi-Cal expansion that would cover young immigrant adults who are in the U.S. illegally, require that all consumers in the state carry health insurance and increase subsidies for middle-class families to help those who need it.

[Gov. Gavin Newsom Proposes Healthcare Mandate, Medi-Cal Expansion To More Immigrants Without Legal Status, by Melody Gutierrez, LAT, January 7, 2019]

While 8 USC 1324 is not a specific intent crime, it is a general intent offense, Newsom provided the public confession and the unneeded specific intent to commit the crime by his public announcement that California will be a “sanctuary,”  such specific intent is often useful to aid a jury to vote to convict.


Criminal Gavin Newsom

Fortunately, Sacramento, California’s capital, lies within the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California, where the U.S. Attorney, McGregor Scott is an actual Republican.  And that Judicial District encompasses the most Republican counties of California providing an excellent jury pool for likely conviction.

Similarly, the execrable Bill de Blasio is following suit on aiding illegal aliens to remain in his jurisdiction.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday announced plans to launch “the largest, most comprehensive plan in the nation” to guarantee health care coverage for all city residents, including those in the country illegally.

[Bill De Blasio Announces Guaranteed Health Care For All New Yorkers, Including Illegal Immigrants, by Alex Pappas, Fox News, January 8, 2019]


Criminal de Blasio

The Democrats have declared war on President Trump, introducing an impeachment motion.  This calls for similar action.  President Trump’s first response, besides an indictment of Hillary Clinton and Huma Abadin should be arrests and indictments of local and State officials who illegally aid illegal aliens.  And starting with Newsom and de Blasio is a shot across the Democrats bow.  President Trump threatened to come out hard against a politicized impeachment effort, it is time he fulfilled a threat.

Time for the indictments and arrests of the Democrats to begin.  It was an option to President Trump early in his administration. It is not too late; arrests are even more important now.


Harvard Supports Illegal Alien Students And Employees

Harvard and most a academia are up in arms to a minor change in immigration enforcement policy.  Recently U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) changed current rules on illegal aliens who violate the terms and conditions of admission placed upon non-immigrant visa (NIV) holders.  Previously,  NIV holders, especially those in the F-1 student non-immigrant visa  holder classification, were generously treated to minor act of mercy by the government.  NIV holders were not considered to be in violation of the terms of admission until the government became aware of their violation.  Of course that policy was ridiculous.  If one violates the conditions of a NIV, that period of violation begins when the alien in question violates the law, not when DHS discovers that violation, as most violations are never discovered by DHS.  But the allegedly high IQ alien employees and students at Harvard are claiming that their violations are both unintentional and of no consequence to the government.

Harvard signed onto an amicus brief Friday objecting to federal visa policy changes made in August that tightened visa overstay rules for international students.

The brief opposes the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services policy memorandum’s revision of rules for how unlawful stay time is calculated for visa-holding students. In particular, the signatories are concerned that the new policy “introduces significant and destructive uncertainty” to international students’ and scholars’ study in the United States, according to the brief.

Harvard joined 64 other U.S. institutions of higher education in signing the brief, most of which are members of the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, a coalition of schools that advocates for policies supportive of undocumented, immigrant, and international students…

[Harvard Signs Amicus Brief Opposing More Stringent Student Visa Policies, by Annie Doris, Harvard Crimson, December 23, 2018]

Now, the reporter, Annie Doris, gets almost nothing correct in her story about immigration law violations.  [Contact her here].  First, she claims that:

Under longstanding immigration policies, when an individual is no longer authorized to remain in the U.S. — such as when a visa expires — a period of “unlawful presence” begins. After six months of unlawful presence, an individual can be forced to return to their country of origin and subject to a three year bar from the U.S.

“An alien may be forced to return to their country…” is a strange construction for a journalist.  There is a word that replaces “…may be forced to return to their country…”  That word is “deported.”  One does not know why Doris did not use such an economy of words to clearly explain to the reader what happens when the alien violates immigration law, whether that violation be intentional or “inadvertant.”

Nor did Doris deal with the other issue, the duration of an alien’s time in the United States is not related at all to the expiration date of the NIV.  An NIV is only a permit to apply for admission to the United States in a particular non-immigrant category.  At admission, an immigration officer at U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) determines if the alien is admissible, and for what period of time according to law.  A foreign student for example is admitted until their approved course of study is completed, not to the expiration date of the NIV they presented to gain admission.  After the course of study is completed, the alien is required to depart in 30 days.  Very simple, one would think a Harvard student or employee could understand that.

Furthermore, Doris did not address the issue of violations of terms and conditions of admission.  The most common are, for students, not being enrolled full-time, with the second most common violation, for students and others, unlawful employment.

For the uninitiated, the violation of the terms and conditions of admission makes one immediately unlawfully present in the United States.  And there is no solution to that issue until the government takes some sort of action regarding that violation.   The usual solution being deportation or the alien departing and then obtaining a new NIV with a waiver for the unlawful presence and NIV violation.

Doris goes on to compound her errors in immigration law.

Prior to the August policy change, individuals only began to accrue unlawful presence the day after the government issued an official determination that the visa holder was “out of status,” according to the amicus brief. Since the enactment of the new rules, the Department of Homeland Security can set retroactive start dates for unlawful presence that begin the day after an individual’s degree program is complete or the day after a person’s visa expires.

No, under the new policy, the government does not set retroactive or ex post facto start dates for unlawful presence.  The alien was always unlawfully present, but that was just not generally enforced.  It was a  benefit given to aliens without basis in law.  In fact, the new policy of strictly adhering to the law, is just that, adhering to the law as written by Congress and in the regulations.

Furthermore, again, that has nothing to do with the date of the expiration of the NIV.  Doris seems to be obsessed by that date for some unknown reason, most likely just pure ignorance or a deliberate refusal to do any research for her story, which was just another screech about Orange Man Bad.

Continuing, again, aliens have 30 days from the end of their course of study to leave the United States.  This is not a secret.  Nor is their graduation date a secret.  These Harvard grads need to plan ahead and buy a plane ticket to leave within 30 days of their graduation.  Not exactly rocket science.

Then Doris babbles on about some alleged “tough choices” that students need to make.  Well, the first tough choice is to not violate the terms and conditions of admission as a foreign student, such as unlawful employment and not being enroll full-time.

The amicus brief argues that the new rule puts visa-holding students in a position to make “tough choices.”

“Under the prior policy, when international students did become aware of a potential issue, they were able to make corrections and request reviews and adjustments, without fearing the accrual of unlawful presence,” the brief states. “International students can stay in the country while they seek review and run the risk of accruing additional unlawful presence time, or they can interrupt their studies and leave the country while the issue is being resolved.”

It is not quite certain what these ephemeral “potential issues” are.  Be enrolled full-time and don’t work illegally.  Pretty simple.  Now for most foreign students, that is why they really come here, to work and to avoid full-time classes, as most foreign students lie about how they will pay for tuition, room, and board.  They come here will little or no money, then start working illegally.  I suspect this is not true for Harvard students, but quite a few think university is all about partying and don’t maintain academic status or find the course work too difficult and seek a less than full-time course load.  All those issues are quite obvious and none require “tough choices.”  Unless the purpose of entering the United States was not to really attend a credentialed degree program of post-secondary education.  Which, for Harvard appears to be something other than an education, but networking and finding a husband.  Neither of which are part of the F-1 student NIV program.

One may attribute this series of errors and lack of research to very low journalism standards at the Crimson and the journalism program at Harvard, but in reality the reporterette was on a jihad against President Trump, as evidenced by her last paragraph:

Harvard’s participation in the brief follows months of on-campus activism in the wake of efforts by President Donald Trump’s administration to terminate Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and remove some people’s Temporary Protected Status. The former is an Obama-era program that allows undocumented youth to live and work in the United States, and the latter is a designation for certain foreign nationals who are unable to return to their country of citizenship due to unsafe circumstances like an armed conflict or natural disaster.

So, little Doris had to bring in DACA and TPS, issues irrelevant to foreign students on an F-1 NIV.  So this is what Harvard and the Crimson are producing, little propagandists of the #LyingPress #LuggenPresse.

Rotherham Comes To ICE

Another Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employee has been arrested, this time not for being paid off by the Mexican cartels, and the skell is not a Hispanic, but, given that this is a sex crime involving underage white girls, he appears to be a brown Muslim as Rotherham and other cities in the United Kingdom have shown, though there is no Mohammed coefficient, just a Majid.  All too often, in fact 99% of the time, corruption or misconduct in DHS components, such as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) the problem is #CrimingWhileHispanic or #CrimingWhileBrown.  There are generally few Blacks in DHS, especially the USBP because of the difficulty of the academic study required to master the intricacies of immigration law, and the Spanish language training.

A computer engineer contract worker at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego is accused of luring an apparent 15-year-old girl from Florida as part of a “daddy-daughter” sexual fantasy, according to a complaint unsealed this week.

Majid Didehban, 35, was arrested Saturday in San Diego and is expected to be transferred to West Palm Beach to face a federal charge of attempted enticement of a minor.

[Computer Engineer At ICE Accused Of Trying To Lure Florida Girl To San Diego, by Kristina Davis, San Diego Union Tribune, January 3, 2019]

Again, we must learn the lesson that brown people just don’t fit in a civilized society and that immigrants and their descendants bring nothing but crime and misery.  Diversity is not a strength, but a weakness.

Another Example Of Failure To Take Executive Action

Recently John Derbyshire opined that President Trump was no match for the Deep State.  True in part, or at least in that President Trump made a series of decisions that ensured that the Deep State would thwart him.   Your correspondent has been chronicling the certain failures of the Trump Administration from a unique perspective inside the bureaucracy.  Not in the area of legislation strategy and Resistance from cucks like Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell, nor am I a specialist in the evil machinations of the Lying Press.  What I know is immigration enforcement.  And while there is a Resistance in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), something I warned about, but I also advised there would be allies as well.  [President Trump Will Have Foes In Immigration Bureaucracy—But Also Friends. They Can Help Him Win, by Federale, VDare, April 25, 2016]  I suggested how to manage what was not then called the Resistance in DHS.  I have also suggested various positive measures to take in the area of immigration enforcement, from arresting Democrat politicians to even arresting illegal aliens, besides just criminal aliens, to make the average illegal feel the heat, using age old immigration law enforcement techniques long practiced by the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) such as Area Control and City Patrol.

Sadly, President Trump, on his own volition, decided not to take that advice.  Worse yet, the Trump Administration has lost control of the borders and was defeated by the Caravan Of Death To America By Demographic Displacement.  Compare this to the Obama Administration when they decided to release 2, 000 illegal aliens: Obama did it not because he was forced to, but because he wanted to.  To date almost all the illegals who came in the Caravan have since entered the United States, legally or illegally, and most released into the United States never to be seen again.  None were sent back under the alleged plan to make them wait in Mexico.  Another plan announced but not implemented, much like birthright citizenship.

Confusion over the current state of the plan reigns on both sides of the border: when Nielsen announced the move on 20 December, Mexico’s foreign ministry reluctantly accepted, although within days the foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, said he would need more information from US authorities. Guillén said Mexico had not formally accepted the plan.

[‘The US Can’t Dump People In Mexico’: Trump Asylum Policy In Doubt, by Sarah Kinosian, The Guardian, January 5, 2019]

The Trump immigration enforcement policy is only going from bad to worse.  Those illegals from the caravan are now being released and not returned to Mexico.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing from custody more than 2,000 border-crossing adults and the children they arrived with over the course of a few weeks.

A DHS official confirmed to Breitbart News that the U.S. Border Patrol and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is releasing more than 2,000 family units caught at the U.S.-Mexico border, citing a lack of detention space.

The border-crossing adults and the children they arrived at the border with will be released and given a court date for an immigration hearing. The adults will be given ankle monitors, though the DHS official says the process of keeping track of border-crossers via ankle monitors is not effective.

[DHS Releases Over 2K Border-Crossing Adults, Children Into U.S., by John Binder, Breitbart, January 3, 2019]

Game, set, match, Deep State, but who is at fault?  Not the Deep State, they could only do what President Trump allowed them to do.   President Trump could have decided to follow this writer’s advice: primarily to hold Mexico responsible for the attack on the historical American nation, and our borders and use his executive authority, held by him and him alone, to see that the immigration laws of the United States were enforced, but he did not step up.  [What Is To Be Done? Answer: Trump Needs To Use His Pen And Phone To Ramp Up Deportations And Stop The Invasion!, by Federale, VDare, November 12, 2018 and Kirstjen Nielsen Admits Complete Failure On Honduran Invasion, by Federale, VDare, October 14, 2018]

And as if on cue, the Trump Administration has been presented with another public defiance of immigration laws by the State of California.  Another illegal alien has been appointed to a public office.

California is continuing to proudly thumb its nose at immigration laws, and the latest example of this is the appointment of an illegal alien to an official state position.

Senate President Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) appointed Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.

Mateo, now 33, was smuggled into the United States, illegally, when she was 14-years old. She is not protected by Barack Obama’s DACA executive order.

[California Appoints Yet Another Illegal Immigrant To State Office, by Phoenix Brooks, Conservative Matrix, January 5, 2019]

Despite this happening back in March of 2018, the Trump Administration decided that it will not enforce the laws of the United States in Mateo’s case for some strange reason.  It is almost as if the Trump Administration is all hat and no cattle as they say.  This despite the fact that in Italy, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is doing the opposite.  He is going to put illegals and the politicians who support them in prison.

The times when mayors of Palermo, Florence and Naples could cash in on illegal immigrants are over, Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said, vowing that those resisting the new policies will answer before law and history.
“Those who help the illegal immigrants, hate Italians,” Salvini said, blasting his opponents on Facebook and Twitter.

The minister from the conservative Lega Nord Party promised that the rebelling city heads will “answer before law and history.” And it’s no idle threat, as the former mayor of the Calabrian town of Riace is currently under house arrest on charges of aiding and abetting illegal immigration.

“Certain mayors look back fondly on the good old times of immigration, but for them the party is over!” Salvini said.

By “certain mayors” he meant the heads of Palermo, Florence and Naples, who he gave the choice of resigning from their posts.

[‘They Hate Italians And Must Resign’: Salvini Attacks Mayors Resisting Harsh Immigration Rules, Russia Today, January 3, 2019]

There is no reason President Trump can’t do the same thing with Sanctuary City mayors, but for some reason, criminals like Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf appear to be immune from criminal prosecution.  And only Donald J. Trump is responsible for that.  He can order criminal prosecution, but hasn’t.  Why? Enquiring minds want to know.

GoFundMe Is A Criminal Organization

GoFundMe is leading the Silicon Valley virtue signalling by leaping into funding alien smuggling business recently with at least two ventures regarding the border walls and fences.  In one, GoFundMe is facilitating the purchase of ladders to climb border walls and fences, while in another it is aiding the construction of border tunnels for illegal aliens.  Now border tunnels are serious business, and widely used predominately by drug trafficking organizations (DTO).  It is amusing for the radical left, but a serious criminal offense.

First, ladders for illegal aliens.  Some have claimed that it is a merely a political statement, but saying you support illegal immigration is one thing, but actually taking action to support a crime is another.  And political satire is not a defense in a criminal case.

Opponents to a crowdfunding campaign for additional border wall have launched a GoFundMe page to buy ladders for people on the Mexico side of the southern border who would be unable to enter the country if more barrier was put up.

“We saw some folks are raising money for a border wall to keep out our migrant siblings and fellow human beings, who are fleeing violence and persecution and whose tragically-underpaid labor is essential to the U.S. economy. Seems like a bad idea on countless levels for everyone involved. Maybe we should focus on human rights and creating a community that reflects our supposed values,” wrote the page creator, Charlotte Clymer, who works for LGBT advocacy organization Human Rights Campaign in Washington, D.C.

[New GoFundMe Effort Wants To Buy Ladders For Migrants To Climb Over Crowdfunded Border Wall, by Anna Giaritelli, The Washington Examiner, December 21, 2018]

Now the mentally ill lesbian, Clymer, claims that the monies won’t be used to buy ladders for illegal aliens.  But that is not necessarily true, no monies have been distributed yet, and all we know is that this fundraiser is about aiding illegal aliens.  We know also that the organization they claim will get the money sends lawyers overseas to encourage illegal aliens to enter the United States illegally.

Similarly, another alien smuggler has created a donation page for building tunnels.  Another joke to most, and they claim the money will go to legal warfare against immigration enforcement by the ACLU.

A Florida man has created a Go Fund Me campaign to raise money for support tunnels under President Trump’s proposed border wall.

Rigo Torres, says he opposes the president’s plans for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border so he started raising money to build a series of tunnels under it.

His goal is $150 million dollars.

As of Thursday morning, Torres has raised a little over $6,000 from 381 donors.

[Man Creates Go Fund Me Account For Border Tunnels, KGNS, January 3, 2019]

Initially, the creator though it all a big joke.  But someone must has told him it wasn’t such a great idea.

Torres admits the whole idea was just a prank.

He plans to donate money raised to the American Civil Liberties Union which is working to defend the rights of migrant families trying to enter the U.S.

Torres probably got some legal advice about violations of Title 8 United States Code Section 1324, Bringing In and Harboring Certain Aliens, specifically Sections (iv) and (v).

(iv) encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or
(I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or
(II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,
shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B).

Torres’ and Clymer were liable for a serious criminal act.  Now they are laughing it off as a joke, but still the liability remains, especially for Torres who had to backtrack. He clearly initially intended to either give the money to illegals, or just collect the money for himself. Clymer was a little more clever, starting out with just a hook, the ladders, but in the details claiming it is all about using the Treason Bar to help illegal aliens.

However, the real issue is the Hispanic Torres and the lesbian Clymer.  Both are part of the Coalition of the Fringes in the war on the historic American people and the election of a new people.  Their support for illegal immigration is more about their lack of connection to the nation than about ladders or tunnels.  They both just hate America and want to destroy it.  One the Hispanic with a chip on his shoulder, the other the man hating lesbian.  Both see themselves as perpetual victims raging against the nation that was created by white heterosexuals.

Both with their fatuous virtue signalling instead signal that they aren’t part of the nation and should be removed in the same manner as the illegal aliens they are so obsessed with.  The nation cannot survive this treason.  Is it time for civil war?  Time for mass deportations of those who are not part of the polity?

Successful Executive Action, Why Not More?

In two areas the Trump Administration is playing a strong hand of bureaucrat game in two areas of immigration enforcement.  This leads us to ask the question why is it so weak in other areas of immigration policy?

First, the Trump Muslim ban has been a rousing success.   Through a pen and a phone, President Trump has brought a 75% decline in refugee admissions, while reducing Muslim refugee admissions to  a mere 15% of the total compared to Barack Hussein Obama.

President Trump has reduced the number of foreign refugees admitted to the United States this calendar year by more than 75 percent compared to former President Obama’s wave of migration in his last year.

Wrapping up 2018, the Trump administration admitted about 22,900 refugees to the U.S. with more than 70 percent of those refugees being Christians. Meanwhile, less than 15 percent of the refugees admitted this year were Muslim.

In total, Trump decreased the 2016 inflow of refugees under Obama — when nearly 97,000 refugees were admitted — by about 76 percent. The refugee totals for this year represent the largest reduction to admissions in the program in nearly four decades.

[Trump Cuts Obama’s Refugee Inflow by More than 75 Percent in 2018, by John Binder, Breitbart, December 31, 2018]

The important part of this decline in refugee admissions is that it was all a matter of Executive action.  The President made policy and the policy was carried out by loyal members of his administration and the permanent bureaucracy.  Many aspects of this were bureaucrat game; deliberate slowdowns in processing, reductions in the number of bureaucrats assigned to adjudicate applications, increased paperwork demands on applicants, shortened timelines for adjudicating, increased security checks that cannot be satisfied, delays that cause applications or parts of applications to expire, necessitating reapplying, etc.  This was a genius move.

And it’s not stopping there.  The Trump Administration is going after another fraud filled special program for illegal aliens, the Special Immigrant Juveniles (SIJ) program.  This is a program where juvenile illegal aliens apply for legal permanent residency based on abandonment or abuse.  SIJ is complete fraud, with almost all aliens approved long after they are adults and with fraudulent claims of abandonment or abuse.  The Trump Administration decided to address the fraud, not directly, but by bureaucrat game.

Some immigrant youth looking to start over in the United States after fleeing abusive homes are seeing their applications for green cards rejected because the Trump administration says they’re too old.

A U.S. government program in place since 1990 has let young immigrants subject to abuse, abandonment or neglect by a parent seek a court-appointed guardian and a green card to stay in the country.

While applicants must file paperwork before age 21, the Trump administration has said some are too old to qualify once they turn 18, prompting a flurry of denial notices over the past year in New York, Texas and California and additional questions of applicants in New Jersey.

Immigrant advocates have filed lawsuits in New York and California and said hundreds of young people could be affected by the change.

[Trump Administration Said Denying Green Card Status To Hundreds Of Young Immigrants Due To Age, by AP, The Japan Time, January 3, 2018]

The whole program is a fraud, and is being used today by the hordes from the caravan; brought here, housed with relatives, then the minors claim they were abandoned by their parents, then they apply for residency with the intent of later applying for their parents.  It is a scam.  And the Trump Administration, which should be fighting it directly, is going the easy route, bureaucrat game.

Applications to the program have surged in recent years, rising more than three-fold between the 2014 and 2017 fiscal years, federal data show. During that time, the number of denials also increased, with 2,000 applications rejected over the past two fiscal years — more than all of the previous seven years combined.

The change was most notable in the nine months ending in June 2018, when 1 in 5 applications that were decided were denied, the data show. About 7 percent of application decisions in the 2017 fiscal year and 4 percent of decisions in the 2016 fiscal year were denials.

Good work Trump Administration.  But this leads us to the question of why the Administration is not fully implementing bureaucrat game.  So why hasn’t bureaucrat game been extended to work-site enforcementFully implementing Expedited Removal?  Subpoenaing voting and driver’s license records of illegal aliensPunish Mexico for allowing the mass invasion of our southern border by third-country nationals?  Fully deploy our military to the border?  One wonders, I suspect it is bad advice from Jim Mattis, John Kelly, and Lady DACA.

It is time for Executive action this day.  President Trump has the correct instincts.  He knew that you can shoot rock throwers, he knows that shutting down the border will cause Mexico to act.  Time to go with your instincts and ignore bad advice from advisers who do not support border control.
