Check The List For YOUR Zip Code

Even though he’s waiting until after the mid-term elections to issue his amnesty-granting executive order, President Obama is hardly allowing his administration to sit idly by on this issue.

Since the federal government announced its plan to place illegal immigrants in communities all across the United States weeks ago, Americans have been furious. It’s all part of President Obama’s plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.

It’s frustrating enough to hear that these immigrants are being placed all over the U.S. and supported by our government, but it’s even more upsetting when they’re being dumped in your town.

Public opposition to his plans have made Obama work in the shadows on this.

Residents have been fighting back against this plan, doing whatever they can to stand up for their own rights and the rights of their children.

And Obama knows we don’t want our towns overrun. He knows people are angry, and that’s why he has been hiding the locations of where he’s putting these people. And it’s not just the thousands of illegal children that have crossed our southern border – there are a large amount of illegal immigrants with criminal histories that have been detained by our government, known as criminal aliens.

People on the right complain about establishment Republicans and I’ve seen Senator Chuck Grassley’s name on the “RINO” lists, but I think in this case, we owe him a debt of gratitude.

President Obama has decided to place them in our communities too. That’s why when Senator Chuck Grassley, ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, got a hold of a list of the locations where the illegal immigrants are being placed, he released it to the public.

The Department of Homeland Security released a list of 134 zip codes across the United States where illegal immigrants with criminal records have been placed. Here are a list of the zip codes:

Grassley Letter

The letter is a response to Senator Grassley’s inquiry regarding the immigrants, and claims that the Department does have the right to release these immigrants as a result of a Supreme Court ruling. The letter also includes a list of detention facilities – organized by state – where criminal aliens have been placed. Check the list to see if there are any in your community.

We are extremely grateful to Senator Grassley for releasing this list to the public. It’s a matter of public safety and security, and we have the right to know when criminal aliens are being placed in our own communities. We encourage you to closely read this letter and determine if you will personally be affected by the placement of these criminal aliens.

DHS working to make new democratic voters before 2016 election
Multiple sources at DHS confirm that political appointees are prioritizing naturalization ahead of the 2016 presidential election

Hat/Tip to J. Christian Adams at

The Obama administration isn’t just content with destroying as much of America as they can while IN office. His DHS is trying to pave the way to NINE MILLION new Democratic voters…

Hope and change much?


President Obama’s amnesty by edict has always been about adding new Democrats to the voter rolls, and recent action by the Department of Homeland Security provides further proof. Sources at the Department of Homeland Security report to PJ Media that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is reallocating significant resources away from a computer system — the “Electronic Immigration System” — to sending letters to all 9,000,000 green card holders urging them to naturalize prior to the 2016 election.

This effort is part of the DHS “Task Force on New Americans.”

PJ Media has obtained an internal “Dear Colleague” letter written by Leon Rodriguez, the “director and co-chair of the Task Force on New Americans.”  The letter refers to a White House report called “Strengthening Communities by Welcoming All Residents.”

Leon Rodriguez has a tainted history — not only was he a central player in the radicalization of Eric Holder’s Civil Rights Division, he also “undertook a purportedly illegal search” of a government employee’s computer in Montgomery County, Maryland.  (Messy details are at the Washington Post.)

The Rodriguez letter states:

This report outlines an immigrant integration plan that will advance our nation’s global competitiveness and ensure that the people who live in this country can fully participate in their communities.

“Full participation” is a term commonly used to include voting rights.  To that end, resources within DHS have been redirected toward pushing as many as aliens and non-citizens as possible to full citizenship status so they may “fully participate” in the 2016 presidential election.  For example, the internal DHS letter states one aim is to “strengthen existing pathways to naturalization and promote civic engagement.”

Naturalization plus mobilization is the explicit aim of the DHS “Task Force on New Americans.” Multiple sources at DHS confirm that political appointees are prioritizing naturalization ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Empirical voting patterns among immigrants from minority communities demonstrate that these new voters will overwhelmingly vote for Democrat candidates.  If the empirical rates of support for Democrats continued among these newly naturalized minority voters, Democrats could enjoy an electoral net benefit of millions of new voters in the 2016 presidential election.

Other DHS sources report that racial interest groups such as La Raza (translated to “The Race”) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association have been playing a central and influential role in rewriting the administration’s immigration policies — both the public policies as well as internal and largely unseen guidelines.

One DHS official who disagrees with the administration’s policies told me DHS “intends to ‘recapture’ ‘unused’ visas from years past to grant more visas and LPR [green card] status. In addition to this ‘visa blizzard,’ the agency will allow folks to jam in applications during the blizzard, knowing that the visa applicant/beneficiary is not eligible for the visa.”

This means that DHS is not only rushing green card holders toward citizenship before the next election, but also jamming previous visa holders toward green card status.  These policies and priorities add to the brazen public positions of the president toward enforcing immigration laws.






And So, Why Is John Boehner Still Speaker?





My friend Grumpy, at Grumpy Opinions, is asking why John Boehner is still speaker.

In November 2014 voters gave the Republican Party the biggest majority they’d had since 1928, and one assignment:  Stop the unconstitutional actions of Barack Obama..

On March 3, 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu gave an historic speech to the United States Congress.  When he was done, Speaker of The House John Boehner, along with 75 Republican Conspirators  and all of the House Democrats passed a funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security that legitimized the most Illegal, Unconstitutional and possibly treasonous action any President of the United States has ever attempted. All but 167 out of 435 House Members violated the oath of office they’d taken two months before and agreed to finance Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional Amnesty.

The 167 Members who voted with the Constitution, National Security and the wishes of the American People were all Republicans.  More than two thirds of the Speaker’s own party voted against him and to keep the promise they, and the Speaker Boehner had made to the American people.

In any world outside of Washington DC, the first logical move the 167 Republicans would have made after the vote, would have been to replace Boehner as Speaker.  The vote made it pretty obvious he was siding against the Constitution, the American People and the wishes of his Members.

When I woke up this morning and found Boehner was still Speaker, I started thinking about how we got to where we are..

Last November, almost before all the votes were counted, Boehner, who the week before had promised to fight the Presidents amnesty “Tooth and Nail” was already wavering.

Then in December, he pushed through a bill that would fully fund the government for a year, with the exception of Homeland Security, which included Obama’s Amnesty.

Homeland Security was only funded until the end of February. Boehner promised that in February he’d use the power of the purse to put an end to Obama’s scheme to flood our borders with illegal Aliens..

Voters started realizing they’d been swindled…

280K SQ FT Facility Rented By Gov’t To Process Illegals, Will Cost Taxpayers Over $600,000 A Month Just For Rent

2200 Crystal Drive (Photo Credit and Vornado

A 280,000 square foot compound in Alexandria, Virginia in the Crystal City neighborhood, will be rented by the government to ‘process’ illegals. It will cost taxpayers almost $650,000 monthly, before any other expenses are included. Another 3,100 government employees will be added to the federal payroll. The website,, quotes sources saying salaries at the facility will range from $34,400 to $157,100, and also identifies the building as “Crystal Plaza 4, a 46-year old office building.” Once again, Judicial Watch rings the bell.

UPDATE 3:06 PM CST: A commenter (many thanks) just left a link to Missouri Congresswoman Ann Wagner asking Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director, Richard Cordray, about the high cost of this building:

During a Congressional hearing on Tuesday, an angry Wagner asked him to explain who authorized a $215 million expenditure on the “untouchable” agency’s new headquarters, Cordray sounded eerily like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who offered a similar response to questions posed in Congressional hearings last year about the 2012 murders of four Americans at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“Why does that matter to you?” Cordray condescendingly responded to Wagner’s legitimate question. More at Breitbart, including a video (and transcript) of Cordray interrupting Wagner “four times in 30 seconds.” 


The numbers are breathtaking and include a $647,590 monthly rent bill for a new facility at 2200 Crystal Drive in Arlington Virginia. It will be the processing headquarters for two Obama amnesty plans—Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA)—that will allow millions of illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. Last month a federal court in Texas blocked the amnesty order, but records show the administration is ready to pull the trigger if it succeeds in appealing the ruling.

In fact a few weeks ago Judicial Watch reported that, despite the court order, the administration continued working behind the scenes to quickly award multi-million-dollar contracts to firms that can expeditiously process millions of illegal immigrants. A Request for Proposal (RFP) from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates that the population of potential requesters for the president’s deferred action will be “approximately four million people” and that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) anticipates the initial filing of “approximately five to six million forms” related to the amnesty order which also covers the illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens and lawful residents.

It’s clear in the RFP’s pricing spreadsheets that it’s a huge taking that will cost American taxpayers a chunk of change, but now we have actual figures provided by government sources close to the negotiations. The Crystal City headquarters will get $1.5 million in “renovations/furniture,” $4 million in “telephone/data electronics,” $2.6 million in “workstation/desktop equipment” and $850,000 in “security upgrade,” according to the documents reviewed by JW. Around $3 million will be spent on an immigration processing program known as Computer Linked Adjudication Information Management System (CLAIMS) and $900,000 will go to video teleconference equipment. The annual rent will be $7,771,082, the document shows, and on-site guard services will run over $1 million.

Other expenses include over $1 million for barcode readers and printers, $90,000 for overtime utilities and tens of thousands for things such as employee background checks, drug testing, “instructor travel expenses” to train new hires and basic training books. The projected payroll for fiscal year 2015 alone is $21 million for an initial 1,000 extra federal workers. If the court injunction is lifted, the document says, and the initial planning estimate holds true, USCIS “might ultimately need to increase its total program costs of between $324 and $484 million per year.” That’s based on the assumption that 60% of all individuals who may be considered for DACA or DAPA would elect to file a request, according to the government memo.

According to this source, Crystal City is in the southeastern corner of Arlington, Virginia, south of downtown Washington, D.C. Office buildings and residential high-rises are connected to retail stores though a web of underground corridors. “A large part of Crystal City is an underground city.” Located in Crystal City are the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Marshals Service, the EPA and some “satellite” offices for the Pentagon. Within Crystal City is Pentagon City.




Texas Law Enforcement Report on Terrorist Aliens, Cartels & Gangs


ms13-gang 002


An unclassified, but “law enforcement sensitive” report on illegal alien crime, primarily in Texas, was published in the Houston Chronicle. It is shocking to read the extensive cartel activity inside the United States. My town of Tulsa sits straight north of Dallas, about a four-hour drive. Before getting into the report, didn’t you wonder how so many thousands of children could invade our borders, unaccompanied, and supposedly seeking their parents in the U.S.? How did they all show up within days, weeks of each other. Blink your eyes, they were here. Well, the government planned it months in advance, and issued a request titled “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Children.”

Finally, an event the president can’t claim he was surprised about or heard about in the news! Yes, for the first time ever, his administration actually planned well in advance, for the massive swell of illegals coming across the border. Specifically they planned for 65,000 illegals, mostly children under the age of 17, to come across the Texas border. Source: RedState

We heard how parents paid coyotes to get their children into this country, many of them from Central America, but think about what it would take to notify these parents, here in the U.S. and to inform them how to make payment. We should take a hard look at this country’s expenditures. I won’t be surprised to find that we paid criminals to bring the children into Texas. Just guessing. More here – and note the tens of thousands were not vaccinated.

Finally, here are some snippets from the Texas Law Enforcement Report, and please visit Independent Sentinel for other portions of this report. It is about 67 pages long, so it takes more than one of us to get the information out. Many thanks to Grumpy Opinions for coordinating.

Terrorists – designated Special Interest Aliens (SIA) – page 30 of report:

In the Texas Sector, SIAs increased 15 percent during the first nine months of 2014, compared to the same time period in 2013.

In total, 493 SIAs from the 35 countries of interest (compared to 428 during the same period last year) either were encountered illegally entering between Ports of Entry (apprehensions) or presenting themselves at Ports of Entry (inadmissible aliens)….Over the past few years, these have included SIAs from Afghanistan, Bangledesh, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and Turkey.

In June 2014, a Somali member of al-Shabaab was encountered at the Hidalgo, Texas [Point of Entry]. He stated he had been trained in April 2014 for a suicide attack in Mogadishu…seeking immigration benefits…stated he was trained with 13 other Somalis for about 10 weeks to use suicide belts, AD-47s and grenades.

It goes on and on.

The following begins on page 15:

? Mexican cartels constitute the greatest organized crime threat to Texas. These powerful criminal organizations use military and terrorist tactics to battle each other and the government of Mexico for control over the lucrative U.S. drug and human smuggling markets. The cartels have also expanded involvement in other criminal activities beyond drug smuggling, including profiting from human trafficking, weapons, smuggling, extortion, kidnapping for ransom, and robbery.

? Mexican cartels control virtually all illegal smuggling activities through the U.S.-Mexico border and continue to supply most of the illicit drugs in the U.S. market. They produce and/or smuggle methamphetamine, marijuana, and heroin, and they have close, and extensive ties with cocaine supply sources in Central and South America.

? Seven of the eight major cartels operate in the state, moving drugs and people into the United States, and transporting cash, weapons and stolen vehicles back to Mexico. These include the Gulf Cartel, Los Zetas, Juarez Cartel, Sinaloa Cartel, Knights Templar, La Familia Michoacama, and the Beltran Leyva Organization. Of these the Gulf Cartel, Los Zetas, the Sinaloa Cartel, and the Juarez Cartel have the most extensive presence and influence throughout Texas.

…recent kidnappings underscore the nationwide reach of Mexican cartels.

As Sara Noble at Independent Sentinel asks, how does a Mexican national who becomes a naturalized U.S. citizen get a Texas law license when he was a former attorney for the Gulf Cartel?

In May 2013, a Southlake, Texas attorney was ambushed, shot and killed by three Mexican nationals while sitting in his SUV. The victim was also a Mexican national and reportedly a former attorney for a leader of the Gulf Cartel. At the time of the murder, two defendants held U.S. Border Cards (BCC) and the third defendant was a legal permanent resident. From approximately March 2011 to May 2013, the three defendants traveled from Mexico to Southlake, and elsewhere with the intent to kill the victim. The three defendants used e-mail to exchange personal information about the victim as well as his location, family, residence, and vehicles. They purchased and placed surveillance cameras around the victim’s neighborhood to track him and his family, in addition to placing tracking devices on their vehicles. While in the area, the defendants bought and rented new vehicles in order to avoid detection. The three men were arrested in McAllen in September 2016.

The report mentions a “Texas Syndicate member who was a confirmed Gulf Cartel associate.” This Texas Syndicate member was wanted for the murder of a 19-year-old (presumably a Texas citizen). What is the Texas Syndicate?

The Texas Syndicate is mostly Texas-based prison gang that includes Hispanic and, at one time, White members. The Texas Syndicate…has been more associated or allied with Mexican immgrant prisoners, known as “border brothers,”…

It was established in the 1970s at Folsom Prison in California in direct response to the other California prison gangs which were attempting to prey on native Texas inmates. Los Zetas cartel has been known to hire US gangs such as the Texas Syndicate and MS-13 to carry out contract killings. Source.

texas gang threat rankings

I don’t know about your thoughts, but there is no excuse for prison gangs.

? We are particularly concerned about the expansion and influence of MS-13, and assess that a further influx of MS-13 members across the border is likely. MS-13 is a large transnational gang with members in the United States, Mexico, and Central America. The gang is composed of loosely organized cliques with no known centralized hierarchy. U.S.-based MS-13 cliques exhibit varying degrees of loyalty to the central leaders in El Salvador….Several U.S. cities have large concentrations of MS-13 members, including Los Angeles, Charlotte (North Carolina), New York, Houston, and the Washington, D.C. area.

? As of December 2013, the National Gang Intelligence Center assessed that MS-13 has been expanding as a result of travel to and from the United States and Central America, and that the gang will continue to expand and strengthen its presence and transnational connectivity….

? …the Rio Grande Valley (RVG) is home to multiple transnational gangs, including MS-13, and represents 43 percent of all gang members in the RVG.

? On September 15, 2014, the mutilated body of a 14-year-old middle school student was discovered in the woods near Houston after he was murdered with a machete…investigation indicates the victim was a U.S. citizen and an MS-13 member who was murdered after refusing to murder his own cousin and for becoming a practicing Christian and trying to leave the gang…Among the group of MS-13 members connected to this murder, at least four individuals revealed that they entered the U.S. at the border in the past 3-8 months.

Drug Smuggling (Note that Human Smuggling and Human Sex Trafficking are intertwined):

We judge that Mexican cartels control, facilitate, or benefit from nearly all human smuggling activity along the U.S.-Mexico border…

Mexican cartels dominate the lucrative U.S. drug and human smuggling markets…resulting billions of dollars of profit…

The Texas-Mexico border area is one of the most active drug smuggling areas in the United States.

Mexico is the dominate foreign producer of heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine for the U.S. market…

Human Smuggling:

We judge that nearly all illegal aliens who have illegally centered the United States made use of alien smuggling organizations (ASOs), nearly all of which are associated with Mexican cartels. These criminal organizations guide groups of illegal aliens across the border and, in many cases, continue to move them through a series of stash houses in the United States en route to a destination beyond the immediate border.

Criminal Arrests of Illegal Aliens in Texas:

According to DHS [Department of Homeland Security] status indicators, between June 1, 2011, and December 31, 2014, more than 96,000 illegal aliens were arrested for criminal offenses and booked into Texas jails. During their criminal careers, these criminal illegal aliens have been charged with more than 247,000 criminal offenses. Those arrests include 561 homicide charges, 27,588 assault charges, 8,984 burglary charges, 31,154 drug charges, 394 kidnapping charges, 17,133 theft charges, 23,476 obstructing police charges, 19,72 robbery charges, 2,826 sexual assault charges, and 3,770 weapons charges.

Of the above numbers, the report says:

These numbers are not a complete count of all crimes committed by illegal aliens in Texas, and likely represent an undercount of all such crime, and the numbers do no account for the unknown number of illegal aliens who were arrested prior to June 2011.

Illegal alien Mexican nationals, arrested and deported multiple times, killed an off-duty Border Patrol agent who was fishing with his family in Willacy County, Texas.

While this report is issued by the state of Texas, these people spread across the U.S. We will always have criminals, but who would have thought our law enforcement could be rendered so impotent?

End note: The report was published at the Houston Chronicle.




Pssst, @MADDOnline: White House Ordering Border Patrol To Release Drunk Drivers, “Allow Them To Go On Their Way”


 photo illegalaliendrunkdriversbeingreleasedbyobama001_zps0c4b719c.jpg

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal.

Someone ought to alert Mothers Against Drunk Drivers because the Obama Administration is seeing fit to let drunk drivers “go their way” as long as they’re in the country illegally.

The Obama administration has ordered federal agents responsible for protecting one of the nation’s busiest and most crime-infested regions near Mexico to stop apprehending drunk drivers, according to an internal government memo that also concedes an officer that elects to detain them is “acting within the course and scope of his employment.”

Obtained by Judicial Watch this week, the notice is titled “Enforcement Options With Alcohol-Impaired Drivers” and directs the 4,000-plus U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson, Arizona sector to “release” individuals under the influence and “allow them to go on their way.”

The document acknowledges that this feels counter-intuitive for Border Patrol agents, but eases concerns by answering a hypothetical question for the officers who have sworn to uphold the law: “If you allow this driver to continue down the road and they kill someone, aren’t you liable?” The answer is no, according to the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo. “There is no legal requirement for a Border Patrol agent to intervene in a state crime, including DUI,” the order says, adding that “therefore there is generally no liability that will attach to the agent or agency for failing to act in this situation.”

The directive offers another scenario—detaining the impaired individual at the request of state or local law enforcement officers (LEO). “There is no duty to detain the alcohol-impaired individual,” the memo says, “but if you do this option can raise potential liability for the agent and the agency.”

The document goes on to say that Border Patrol policy is to cooperate with local and state law enforcement officers who alert of suspected violations under state law. That means the agent would be considered to have been acting within the course and scope of his employment while detaining a drunk driver at the request of local law enforcement officers under Arizona law, the document confirms.

Evidently, the Department of Homeland Security is more worried about a civil lawsuit than letting a drunk driver go so he can kill more innocent people…

The last scenario offered in the recently issued decree has a Border Patrol agent detaining a drunk driver in Arizona without a request from a state or local law enforcement officer.

“This option poses the greatest liability for both the agent and the agency,” according to the order. After revealing that private citizens in Arizona can make felony and misdemeanor arrests, it nevertheless prompts Border Patrol agents to stay away from drunk drivers. “Be advised, this option poses the greatest threat to an agent for a civil lawsuit,” the memo warns.

Even Using DHS’ Artificially Low Numbers, 2,354 Jihadists Entered U.S. Via Our Open Southern Border


127 desert rats enter  2 740

Hat/Tip to

As with most things this government has done since BHO took office in 2009, the Obama Regime refuses to “make transparency the touchstone” of his administration. We’ve seen it with the Fast & Furious stonewalling; the VA Scandal where two sets of statistics, or two ‘books’ if you will were used to track the application of benefits to our Military Vets; the IRS targeting scandal; and now, the Department of Homeland Security is playing fast and loose with reporting the number of illegals pouring across our border.

For the United States federal government the fiscal year 2013 ran from October 1 2012 through September 30 2013.  During that time period, the Department of Homeland Security claims to have apprehended 9,862 illegal aliens from countries which either sponsor or are associated with terrorism or provide safe harbor to terrorists.

CNS News reports that the majority of these apprehensions came from three Western Hemisphere countries, Cuba (2,809), Venezuela (2,712) and Colombia (1,987).  Factoring those nations out of the mix reduces the number by 7,508, to 2,354.

Of that number, 492 were from Nigeria, home of the despicable, bloodthirsty Boko Haram terrorists with another 334 from the al-Qaeda and Taliban-friendly nation of Pakistan, as well as other noteworthy nations including Iran (257), Lebanon (230), Somalia (214), Iraq (169), Sudan (168), Syria (72), Afghanistan (70), Yemen (68) and Libya (16).

Despite the ridiculously low numbers being reported, common sense and logic dictates that the numbers of people crossing the border who want to do harm to America has got to be on the rise, as well.

The policy of the Department of Homeland “Security” does not include mandatory deportation in all cases, and one has to believe under the current open-borders administration of Jeh Johnson and Hussein Obama the number of instances where we allow terrorists to remain in our midst must have certainly increased.

It is true that we have good laws on the books, that were they implemented, the number of illegals coming to and staying in the U.S. would be precipitously low. But we need to understand that there is difference between written laws and actually enforced laws.

Current DHS policy as written, which could be different than “as enforced,” is “Aliens who enter without inspection between ports of entry and are apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol of CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] may be, as appropriate, removed, permitted to return to their country, or issued a NTA [notice to appear] to commence proceedings before the immigration court.”

So we may have allowed all of them to stay, deported all of them, or sent any number in between on their way with a promise to appear written on a piece of paper.

We also need to remember that the above numbers came along before Obama decided to open the southern border.

Those figures represent the numbers which were captured for a period which ended a year ago. In the time period since then, our border has gotten much more porous and our enforcement policies much more lax. We have also seen DHS management degrade the position of Border Patrol agent to that of an armed daycare worker, removing enforcement agents from the Border.

Additionally, large numbers of our agents occupy positions as much as one hundred miles inland from the actual border, creating an enforcement-free buffer for those who enter illegally.

But it gets better, folks. Evidently the Department of Homeland Security only counts illegal crossings if there is evidence of it, in other words, if they didn’t see it, they don’t know it.

Hmmm, that seems so familiar. Now where have I heard that before?

Oh yea, I remember now!

i see nothing_i hear nothing_i know nothing_schultz

The likelihood is that many more got through than the numbers that were apprehended. But it gets worse. The methodology employed in calculating the interdiction rates themselves are overly generous towards the success side of the equation.

Our present system relies upon guess work and happenstance to determine the apprehension rate. Border agents are required to have actually witnessed someone crossing and failed to capture them or have found actual physical evidence of a crossing such as footprints, empty water bottles, or discarded Korans and prayer rugs to validate a successful illegal entry.

If  there is no evidence, it is DHS policy that no illegal entry occurred. The same is true with excessive evidence, as is the case with smuggling trails. They are littered with debris and determining what might be new evidence from old is impossible.

John Whitley, an economist who analyzed such statistics while he served as the director of the DHS’s Program Analysis & Evaluation department under President Bush said, “To calculate it, border patrol officers go out and look for physical evidence of crossings… you know, ‘I saw this person cross and I didn’t get him.’ Or, ‘I saw footprints in the sand.’”

He added, “We know that this method of calculation understates the number of successful crossings, because you’re excluding anyone you don’t have physical evidence for.”

So we all know that the DHS keeps their stats artificially low. But how long can this last before a tragedy on the scale of 9/11 hits our shores again?

DHS Secretary says America’s Nanny State policies NOT drawing illegal minors into US

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson
DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson

Wait, that was the wrong picture…

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson
Okay, we’re sure now – DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson

Hat/Tip to CNS News.

It was hard to tell Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson from Sergeant Schultz after his comments about President Obama’s “Dreamers.”

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the wide range of services the government is providing to unaccompanied minors who cross the border into the U.S. illegally will not encourage more of them to break the law.

At a press conference on Thursday at Customs and Border Protection headquarters in Washington, asked Johnson whether giving these children everything from transportation to housing, health care, education and even legal representation, is an incentive for more “unaccompanied minors” to come to this country.

“I would say no,” Johnson said. He noted that these children, most from Central America, are not eligible for the two-year-old Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — recently renewed for two more years – that give temporary legal status to people who came to the U.S before they turned 16; have continuously lived in the U.S. from 2007 to the present; and who entered the U.S. before June 2012.

What exactly do we offer these kids?

By law, HHS and its various divisions must provide for the custody and care of unaccompanied alien children.

The services include classroom education, mental and medical health services, case management, socialization and recreation, and “family reunification,” which facilitates the child’s release to a relative or other sponsors.

Since President Obama decided to score some cheap political points by announcing to the world that we’ve stopped deporting kids, the number of unaccompanied minor children from Latin America countries crossing our southern border have exploded from seven or eight thousand to nearly 100,000 by the end of 2014.

In May 2014, HHS noted that on average, between 7,000 and 8,000 unaccompanied, undocumented minor children are served annually; but “this number jumped dramatically”  in fiscal year 2012 (Oct. 2011 through Sept. 2012), when 13,625 unaccompanied minors were served by HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Since then, the “overall increase has continued,” HHS said, resulting in 24,668 unaccompanied minor children flooding into this country in fiscal 2013; and the projection for fiscal 2014 was at least 60,000 as of May; now perhaps as high as 90,000.

And as usual, our Narcissist in Chief refuses to take any blame for opening his big mouth about his non-deportation policy before the 2012 elections as being the reason for the huge influx of kids across our border.

The Obama administration says violence in Central America is largely responsible for the flood of children illegally pouring into the Rio Grande Valley, but others, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), say the problem is a direct result of President Obama’s executive orders relaxing U.S. immigration policy — specifically, DACA.

“[M]idway through 2012 was when administration unilaterally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who had been minors, with the so-called DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] proceeding,” Cruz told Johnson at a Senate hearing earlier this week. “And you can see, sometime after that, the numbers (of unaccompanied minors) spike dramatically.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) says the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border “is the direct and predictable result of actions taken by President Obama. He and his Administration have announced to the world that they will not enforce America’s immigration laws, and have emphasized in particular that foreign youth will be exempted from these laws. The world has heard the President’s call, and illegal immigrants are pouring across the border in pursuit of his promised amnesty.

“President Obama is responsible for this calamity,” Sessions said, “and only by declaring to the world that our border is no longer open — and that the law will be restored — can this emergency be stopped.”


Ben Carson: A Run for Presidency? Message to Carson: AK-47s Don’t Mow People Down, People Mow People Down


The lesson here is summed up in Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). I believe Dr. Ben Carson is a very smart man, good to the core, honorable, decent, but I believe he, like many others, will falter when it comes to an issue close and dear to his heart. In this case, I consider black children dying in Chicago and Detroit to be an emotional issue for him, as it is for all of us. Dr. Carson believes some people should not have Second Amendment rights. Senator Rubio promised to secure the border before any “immigration reform,” but it the flick of an eye that changed when he willing joined the Gang of 8 shortly after arriving on Capitol Hill. Rubio is the son of immigrants. Rubio was the one person I believed would never falter, but he did, and he did it in a devastating way. Rubio wasn’t “worn-down,” by his senior members of the Senate. My skepticism of Dr. Carson began with his Second Amendment remarks. I believe, unlike Rubio, he means what he says and we should pay attention.

Dr. Benjamin “Ben” Carson

“When asked by Glenn Beck if people should be allowed to own semi-automatic weapons, Dr. Benjamin Carson said: “It depends on where you live. I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it.” (Glenn Beck Show, March 1, 2013)

Former Republican Congressman and football legend, J.C. Watts, voted for Barack Obama at least the first time, according to comments he made to Sean Hannity. Conservative analyst on Fox Business, Charles Payne, voted for Obama the first time. The point is, conservative blacks yearn for an honorable black leader, so they either did not read Barack Obama’s history, or they read it an ignored it. Two very smart, men who voted for someone who clearly did not share the historic idea of America.

There should be no confusion about the Second Amendment for any candidate for the Oval Office, on either side of the aisle. I trust no one who says what Dr. Carson said, to lead as president.

…it’s no secret that Dr. Carson is a proponent of restricting the Second Amendment to an extent, as he has on several occasions been more than vocal about his views when it comes to the contentious topic of gun control. This is the one area where his views don’t align with many conservatives who feel that there’s already strict enough laws regarding firearms and think that anything further would be a major infringement on our rights. Source: Mr. Conservative

From Mr. Conservative, in the same article linked above:

According to Ben Carson, Americans should reconsider whether or not they want neighborhood watchmen carrying firearms after what happened in Florida between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.

According to the DailyCaller, in his new book titled “One Nation: What We Can Do To Save America’s Future,” the esteemed neurosurgeon lamented that “Though the days of legalized segregation are over, racist bigotry and prejudice still exist today, both in overt and covert ways.

“I can remember times when I would be walking in a white neighborhood and in short order a police car would show up, undoubtedly summoned by a concerned onlooker. Unfortunately, this and worse still happens today, as evidenced by the Trayvon Martin case. ”

He continued with his story, blaming Martin’s race for Zimmerman’s actions and explaining how Zimmerman “shot and killed Martin after an altercation.”

Today, Breitbart is quoting Carson:

“Do you think the Supreme Court was wrong when it found that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep arms in Washington, D.C., and Chicago?” Taranto asked.

“I truly believe in Second Amendment rights,” Carson said. “I would never advocate anything to interfere with Second Amendment rights; however, I do think we have to be intelligent.”

He said his point in saying that was to address situations–like in Detroit–where people with AK-47s are mowing people down.

“We need to engage in a discussion about, ‘Is there something we can do?’” Carson said before saying that “we have to keep in mind that law-abiding American citizens absolutely should have gun rights.”

Maybe the example above about AK-47s is the author’s view of what Carson was intimating. If that’s the case, I believe that is exactly what Carson was intimating. We must not ignore this:

“It depends on where you live. I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it.”

There is a place for Ben Carson in our government. I would love to see him in high places, as head as of Health and Human Services, for example, but not as president.

We must have a president who will clean house immediately. The State Department needs to be emptied and re-staffed. Bush failed to do so — look where we are today. The next Commander-in-Chief must meet with military commanders and announce that the past 8 years of political correctness is gone. The Department of Homeland Security must be dismantled and rebuilt in some smaller fashion with true protectors of U.S. security and the Constitution in charge. The CIA and FBI must have a new mission, ObamaCare must be repealed. I can go and on but you know the drill.

Here’s the question, who do you believe to be strong enough to stand-up and do all of the above?


Jamal Badawi on DHS & DOJ “Terrorist Hands-Off” List, Sued US Twice – DHS Purged Terrorist Files


There is lots of information on this new story, but the short of it is that former Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, is believed to have purged files on a certain terrorist, Jamal Badawi. I remember that through the years we have suspected this of more than one such dangerous person allowed entry, and terror-related files having been purged. Senator Charles Grassley has discovered that the U.S. has a “hands-off” list of terrorists, and at least one person on the list is gaining entry to the U.S. this weekend, because, well, he’s on the  “hands off” list and he knows it. Badawi has sued the U.S. twice in past for either attempting to keep him out and doing so, or attempting to keep him out and failing. Those details haven’t yet been released.

The DHS emails also reveal that this particular terrorism suspect has actually taken legal action against the U.S., presumably because authorities violated the hands off policy. The subject “has sued CBP twice in the past and that he’s one of the several hands off passengers nationwide,” according to the DHS emails obtained by Senator Grassley’s office. The documents go on to say that the terrorist’s records were removed and that the DHS Secretary (at the time Janet Napolitano) was involved in the matter…

In February he wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson saying this: “I’m puzzled how someone could be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, be an associate of [redacted], say that the US is staging car bombings in Iraq and that [it] is ok for men to beat their wives, question who was behind the 9/11 attacks, and be afforded the luxury of a visitor visa and de-watchlisted. It doesn’t appear that we’ll be successful with denying him entry tomorrow but maybe we could re-evaluate the matter in the future since the decision to de-watchlist him was made 17 months ago.”

Read the full story at Judicial Watch.

Grassley has been trying to untangle these emails, and this story, since February. Homeland Security is blaming it on the Department of Justice (DOJ) which maintains the “Terrorist Screening Center.”

Judicial Watch did not reveal the person’s name for this particular, “hands-off” offense, but The Free Beacon did.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretly assembled a terrorist “hands off” list that permitted individuals with terrorist ties unfettered entrance into the United States, according to document released by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa).

The existence of a “hands off” list that permitted easy entrance for suspect individuals into the United States has drawn concern from Grassley, who released a cache of internal DHS emails detailing the list’s existence and discussion about permitting an alleged member of the Muslim Brotherhood to enter the United States.

The emails—sent between U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)—reveal a row over the admittance of one alleged Muslim Brotherhood official tied to Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terror groups.

While the individual in question is not named in the heavily redacted emails, the Washington Free Beacon has learned that the person referenced is Jamal Badawi, a Canadian Islamist leader who has praised suicide bombing and is close to Hamas and Hezbollah.

Read the full story at The Washington Free Beacon.

PJ Media has a full exposé on Badawi, who graduated the University of Indiana. He’s the typical coward who is a professor in Canada, and never detonates the bomb, just encourages others to do so.

However the presence of one of the keynote speakers, Egyptian-Canadian Islamic leader Jamal Badawi, is not only raising ongoing questions about the leadership of ISNA, but also of the Department of Homeland Security’s continued reluctance to stop Badawi’s extensive travels inside the United States despite abundant evidence of his terrorist support and extremist views, including evidence submitted by federal prosecutors fingering Badawi in the largest terrorism financing trial in American history…

That’s not the only connection. Badawi also sits on the board of directors of Qaradawi’s International Association of Muslim Scholars (IAMS), which just a few months after its founding in 2004 issued a fatwa authorizing the killing of American troops in Iraq. The Iraqi resistance even published the news of the IAMS fatwa on their own English-language website.

That’s right: Homeland Security continues to allow Badawi into the U.S. despite sitting on the board of a group that religiously authorized the killing of American service men and women.

Even before the conference this past weekend, the Investigative Project on Terrorism noted last week Badawi’s radicalism, including recorded statements he made in 2009 in support of suicide bombings.

You might remember Yusuf al-Qaradawi, also banned from the U.S., and the godfather of the Muslim Brotherhood. Former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarack barred him from the country some 30 years ago. The minute Mubarack was deposed, Qaradawi made a triumphant return. He was there to help the Muslim Brotherhood “cleanse” the new constitution. We know what that got them, a military coup and prison time for the offending Brotherhood.  Qaradawi’s deputy, Islamist Abdulla bin Bayyah, claims he has visited the White House to offer advice on Syria.

The following three paragraphs are from my previous post:

Bin Bayyah, as VP of the IUMS “endorsed a fatwa calling for the killing of American troops and other personnel serving in Iraq.” Bin Bayyah’s visit to the White House and close association with Qaradawi, who is also the current president of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) – justifiying jihad for young Muslims, should do more than raise eyebrows. Qaradawi has called for the deaths of Americans and Jews. ECFR does not recognize Israel’s right to exist.

 This marks a new low for the administration that, in brazen violation of U.S. counterterrorism law, previously invited a member of the Blind Shiekh’s terrorist organization for consultations at the White House… 

Read more at The National Journal Online.

Abdullah bin Bayyah’s website announced his visit to the White House, said it was requested by the administration and The Investigative Project says that meeting took place June 13, 2013. Bin Bayyah said he will call for “the protection of the Syrian people and justice for the Palestinians, as he meets with Obama’s senior advisers and an “aide” or “aides” to Barack Obama.

It begs the question, is Abdullah bin Bayyah also on the “hands-off” list?

Remember that Obama’s brother, Malik Obama, who keeps the revolving door at the White House moving at a brisk pace: 

Malik Obama is the founder of the Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. Foundation which received expedited 501(c) US tax status, and the benefit was given retroactively for previous years, directly from Lois Lerner, the IRS employee who pled the Fifth Amendment in the cases of the IRS targeting of Conservatives.

Malik is Executive Secretary to the Sudanese president who has been indicted on charges of genocide. Sudan is considered a terrorist state by the U.S. – so our White House has had a top member of that terrorist state with horrific human rights violations sitting right in the Oval Office and we haven’t a clue how many times he’s been there….

Malik is also Executive Secretary  of the Sudanese Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) which Shoebat says is an umbrella group of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egyptian press reports Egypt is close to putting Malik on a Terrorist Watch list.

August 2013:

At point 20 of this declaration of war, Jamal Badawi, is identified as a Muslim Brotherhood leader in North America. Badawi has been on CAIR-CAN’s board of administrators at least since 2004. On May 28, 2013, he was still listed on the organization’s board. Badawi is based in Halifax. He is also on the board of many other Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations in Canada and in the United States.

In a 2004 text, Jamal Badawi wrote about the Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna (1906-1949) that ‘he has epitomized twentieth century Islamic thought and ideology.’ Al-Banna’s ideas are summarized in his 50-point manifesto. In it, al-Banna urged his supporters to abolish political parties and replace them by a single party system, he favoured the modification of laws so that they conform to sharia, he called for the multiplication of associations dedicated to promoting the spirit of jihad amongst the youth, etc.

Our government has a “hands off” list for certain terrorists — and they exercise it, we just don’t know how often or for whom. Senator Grassley will try to stop this nasty bit of business, but you and I both know, he doesn’t have a chance.
