ATLANTA – On May 21, 2013, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Atlanta and the FBI conducted search and arrest warrants for several individuals suspected of human trafficking.
Since 2006, Severiano Martinez-Rojas, along with family members Arturo Rojas-Coyotl, Odilon Martinez-Rojas, Daniel Garcia-Tepal, and others, all from Tenancingo, Tlaxcala, Mexico, conspired and brought multiple women into the United States from Mexico and Guatemala, all for the purpose of forcing them to engage in prostitution.
Eight victims from Mexico and Guatemala were rescued during the course of the investigation.
Odilon Martinez-Rojas and Rojas-Coyotl have been sentenced to 21 years and 16 years in prison, respectively. Severiano Martinez-Rojas is believed to have returned to Mexico prior to the warrant execution and remains a fugitive in this case.
This topic has long been debated with no resolution including at the Supreme Court level. Much has been written about what ‘birthright’ is including in the New York Times as recently as in 2015.
The simple requirement is subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, not subject to a foreign power. A birth must be to parents who were legally domiciled to the United States as citizens themselves. There is no such thing legally as an anchor baby. There must be a provable bind to the United States.
President Trump has ordered a team to investigate the definition of the 14th Amendment leading to his possible signature of an Executive Order which would lead government agencies to act in accordance with the clarification and regulations around the Citizenship Clause.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) can’t even catch a flight in peace these days because of leftist whack-jobs. Ever the gentleman, Cruz was accosted at Los Angeles International Airport this last weekend for being a strong supporter of legal immigration. Pro-illegal immigrants protesters swarmed Cruz once he was recognized at the terminal. That’s California for you – it’s more Mexico than the US these days.
The group Voto Latino tweeted out a video of the group chanting: “Free the children!” at Cruz. According to the tweet, Cruz supports locking illegal aliens in cages along the southern border. Especially children. That’s an utter lie and they know it.
Homeland Security and Homeland Defense cannot be divided, one relies on the other.
For starters, the FBI has had a long term operation in Central America. The FBI declares the gang operations for instance in El Salvador does affect public safety in America.
“Many of the gang members committing these homicides are 13-, 14-, and 15-year-olds,” he explained, “and every day there are new members coming in.”
“We aren’t facing a group of youths who are rebelling, but a very structured organization conducting criminal activities,” said Luis Martinez, El Salvador’s attorney general, and the country’s highest-ranking law enforcement officer. “They are using military-grade weapons, and they are using them against the police, military, and prosecutors.”
MS-13 and 18th Street gang members have gained a foothold in numerous U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Boston, Houston, Charlotte, Newark, and the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. They commit a variety of crimes — mainly trafficking drugs and extorting individuals and business owners — and they maintain strong ties to Central America.
Senator Ted Cruz and Ben Sasse have co-sponsored legislation to seize the bank accounts of el Chapo Guzman to pay for the wall. While this is great in theory, some of that money should go to the victims as well.
El Chapo has been sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years and he is to forfeit his vast sums of money estimated to be as high as $12 billion. C’mon, this is likely not going to happen in total but there is a possibility to find perhaps some of it. Why?
Guzman’s trial highlighted the methods Guzman Loera and his organization used to transport the cartel’s multi-ton shipments of narcotics into the United States, including fishing boats, submarines, carbon fiber airplanes, trains with secret compartments and transnational underground tunnels. Once the narcotics were in the United States, they were sold to wholesale distributors in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Arizona, Los Angeles and elsewhere. Guzman Loera then used various methods to launder billions of dollars of drug proceeds, including bulk cash smuggling from the United States to Mexico, U.S.-based insurance companies, reloadable debit cards and numerous shell companies, including a juice company and a fish flour company.
As we approach the 2020 elections, ballot integrity is of critical concern (recall the 2018 midterms with Broward County, Florida and California “vote harvesting”).
Motor voter, driver’s licenses for illegal aliens (most recently in New York state), coupled with auto-registration in some states, and “same day” registration, is a recipe for election fraud on an epic scale – yet it takes not epic scale to change the outcome of close elections.
Democrat officials and Progressives overall vehemently deny that election fraud is a problem. Well, of course, they do – because it isn’t a problem for them. Instead, it has helped them win elections since the 1960 election of JFK, if not before. Their strident opposition to voter ID exposes their true motivations, even though to the public they claim that voter ID amounts to (minority) “voter suppression.” This is bulloney. It doesn’t constitute voter suppression – what it does is to promote voter nullificationof legitimate voters.
Ponder the very first bill introduced once the Democrats took control of the House – “H.R. 1,” the “For the People Act” – legislation that seeks to impose voter nullification practices nationally.
Auntie Zeituni was ordered to leave the country in 2003, but she stayed. Later that year, she tried to stay again. But she lost the appeal, and an immigration judge ordered her deported in October 2004.
Instead, Onyango remained in Boston and lived in state and federal public housing. Critics have denounced her for defying deportation and for living in public housing while scores of families are on waiting lists.
They do training. training on protecting our communities from ICE! Bring a Laptop! FIRE is located in several states and quite active in Texas, Illinois, and California. This organization collaborates with RAICES. ‘Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services.
The training by FIRE just for Texas includes:
More than a dozen local and statewide nonprofits — including Dallas Catholic Charities, RAICES, the North Texas Dream Team and the ACLU of Texas — formed the Force for Immigrant Rights and Empowerment, known as FIRE.
The coalition hosts “Know Your Rights” sessions, where immigrants are taught to distinguish between arrest warrants signed by judges and those signed by ICE officers, which don’t grant ICE officers the legal right to enter someone’s home.
Immigrants also learn how to build an emergency family plan in case a parent is arrested and who to call in events of arrests, among other lessons.
President Trump has authorized aggressive deportations of illegal immigrants which hovers around 1 million cases. These deportations are not raids but rather individual cases where the judge has already ordered deportation. There will be some significant law enforcement confrontations as families are harboring these people. Further, there are thousands of households that include non-citizens as well as citizens that are receiving huge financial benefits from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This has been going on since 1980 and those who are 62-years-old or younger can either be evicted or have their benefits terminated if new rules take effect. HUD estimates it would save the taxpayer up to $210 million per year as just in Texas there are 6,000 households that fit this description. This new policy has not rolled out yet but is slated to occur by the end of the year. See more details here from the Federal Register.
Let’s start calling it what it is and it is profitable at epic levels. We cannot overlook that the Syrian refugees were also smuggled in, so there is no longer much separating the United States from Europe in this human crisis and yet Congress is not acting.
Senator Lindsey Graham at least introduced a bill to address the asylum issue but is there a Democrat on the House side that has visited the border or introduced anything? Silence…
Arrests at the southwest border increased for the fourth straight month in May as authorities continued to grapple with an unprecedented influx of migrants from Central America. 132,887 people were arrested between ports of entry last month, up from 99,304 migrants in April, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection released Wednesday.
The Trump administration wants to open two new tent facilities to temporarily detain up to 1,000 parents and children near the southern border, as advocates sharply criticize the conditions inside the tents already used to hold migrants.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a notice to potential contractors that it wants to house 500 people in each camp in El Paso, Texas, and in the South Texas city of Donna, which has a border crossing with Mexico.
Each facility would consist of one large tent that could be divided into sections by gender and between families and children traveling alone, according to the notice. Detainees would sleep on mats. There would also be laundry facilities, showers, and an “additional fenced-in area” for “outside exercise/recreation.”
The notice says the facilities could open in the next two weeks and operate through year-end, with a cost that could reach $37 million.
But the agency has said its resources are strained by the sharp rise in the numbers of parents and children crossing the border and requesting asylum. It made 53,000 apprehensions in March of parents and children traveling together, most of whom say they are fleeing violence and poverty in Central America. Many ultimately request asylum under U.S. and international law.
Immigrant children are led by staff in single file between tents at a detention facility next to the Mexican border in Tornillo, Texas, June 18, 2018.
In a statement Tuesday, CBP said it urgently needed additional space for detention and processing.
“CBP is committed to finding solutions that address the current border security and humanitarian crisis at the southwest border in a way that safeguards those in our custody in a humane and dignified manner,” the statement said.
The Border Patrol has started directly releasing parents and children instead of referring them to immigration authorities for potential long-term detention, but families still sometimes wait several days to be processed by the agency and released.
Land near the bridge in Donna was used last year as a camp by active-duty soldiers when they were ordered to South Texas’ Rio Grande Valley.
The Border Patrol also established a tent facility at Donna to hold migrants in December 2016, in the last weeks of the administration of former President Barack Obama, in response to a previous surge of migrants from Central America.
Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, said she had been allowed to visit the tent facility in 2016. She said that facility had been “open and clean,” but noted she visited before it began detaining people.
“Detention is never a good idea for any family,” Pimentel said. “I believe families are victims of a lot of abuse, and we just add to that abuse by the way we respond to handle and process them.”
