Adult MS-13 Member Caught Claiming to Be Unaccompanied Minor at Border


Reported 

Border Patrol agents have recently reported actions of illegal border crossing at the border by mass groups of illegals migrants. 

A group of 61 illegal immigrants just crossed the border by the Yuma Station near the San Luis Port of Entry in southern Arizona. The border patrol agents discovered an adult MS-13 member hiding within the group of illegal immigrants. 

The group was hiding in the desert after they crossed the border on Monday when they were found. The illegals that were found consisted of a single national Mexican, 59 adult Guatemalans, and one unaccompanied Salvadoran minor. The 61 individuals captured were sent to the Yuma Station to be processed by officials. 

According to breitbart:

The agents determined the person claiming to be a Salvadoran unaccompanied minor to actually be an adult. Officials identified the Salvadoran as 18-year-old Herberth Geovani Argueta-Chavez. He also admitted to being a member of Mara Salvatrucha-13 (MS-13).

Argueta-Chavez told officials “he was trying to separate from the gang.” He said he crossed the border illegally to make his way to Los Angeles, California.

Agents processed the group of 61 illegal aliens for immigration violations. 

Border Patrol spokesman Justin Kallinger told Breitbart Texas that the Mexican national has been interviewed and remains under investigation. He said they are not sure if this group of 60 migrants is part of the “caravan” that is reported to be making its way from Central America to the U.S.

Kallinger noted that the Yuma Sector has seen “an uptick in larger groups,” mostly from Guatemala and Honduras.

Of those in the group of 60 migrants, more than ninety percent were unaccompanied minors or “family reunites,” he explained. The juveniles ranged in age from one-year to 17.

On April 7, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a zero-tolerance policy for people crossing the border illegally, even for the first time.

“To those who wish to challenge the Trump Administration’s commitment to public safety, national security, and the rule of law, I warn you: illegally entering this country will not be rewarded, but will instead be met with the full prosecutorial powers of the Department of Justice,” Sessions said in a written statement. “The situation at our Southwest Border is unacceptable. Congress has failed to pass effective legislation that serves the national interest—that closes dangerous loopholes and fully funds a wall along our southern border. As a result, a crisis has erupted at our Southwest Border that necessitates an escalated effort to prosecute those who choose to illegally cross our border.”

Border Patrol agents are reporting illegal border crossings by large groups of migrants. On Tuesday, agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector reported two large groups that crossed near Hidalgo, Texas, in a two-day period. The agents arrested 112 illegal immigrants including 14 Unaccompanied Alien Children. Most of the balance of the group where Family Unit Aliens from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

In response to the massive increase in illegal border crossings, President Donald Trump called for the deployment of up to 4,000 National Guard troops.  Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona have all responded to the president’s request by committing to send nearly 2,000 guardsmen to the southern border.

“You need to understand that there is a mathematical need for this because the people coming across the border have increased dramatically,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said on Fox and Friends Monday morning, “more than 200 percent month on month in the month of March, of what it was the year before.”

A second state is suing the Trump administration to stop the government from including a citizenship question in the 2020 Census. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, D,  announced Tuesday he would lead a multistate lawsuit to stop the change, arguing that asking about citizenship in the census would discourage immigrants from participating.

“The Trump Administration’s reckless decision to suddenly abandon nearly 70 years of practice by demanding to know the citizenship status of each resident counted … will create an environment of fear and distrust in immigrant communities that would make impossible both an accurate Census and the fair distribution of federal tax dollars,” Schneiderman said in a statement. 

The U.S. Commerce Department announced Monday that the citizenship question would be included, fulfilling a request by the Department of Justice for better enforcement of the Voting Rights Act, which protects minority voting rights. Mainstream media organizations ABC and NBC claimed that the last time the census asked participants about U.S. citizenship was in 1950. But the question was asked as recently as 2000 and was also asked in 1990 and 1980.

New York joins California in opposition to the citizenship question. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, D,  blasted the return to an old policy as anti-immigrant.

“This request is an extraordinary attempt by the Trump administration to hijack the 2020 census for political purposes,” Becerra wrote in an op-ed with California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, D. “Since the first day of his presidential campaign and through his first year in office, President Trump has targeted immigrants: vilifying them and attempting to exclude them from the country.”

Democrats in California and New York benefit politically from the status quo. Seats in the House of Representatives are apportioned to states by total population. The states with the biggest illegal immigrant populations benefit by having extra seats in the House, reflecting the populations of their districts, even though American political representation is reserved for citizenship and illegal immigrants cannot vote in federal elections. California would lose five seats in the House and New York would lose one were the census to stop counting illegal immigrants or differentiate them from citizens.

The leftist attorneys general of California and New York are not suing the Trump administration to protect immigrant interests. They are cynically protecting the distortion of representation of American citizens in Congress in order to protect the size of the Democratic conference in the House of Representatives.

Editor’s note: This article has been updated to correct the years that a citizenship question was on the census. CR regrets the error.

This Week’s Ann Coulter Letter: “Give Me Your Dreamers…”


Commentary by Ann Coulter  

Does anyone know why President Trump loves “Dreamers” — i.e.: illegal aliens allegedly brought here before the age of 12 (which no federal judge will ever check) by their parents (which no federal judge will ever check), “through no fault of their own” (which no federal judge will ever check)?

We’ve been lectured by Mark Zuckerberg about how much better “Dreamers” are than you lazy Americans — especially African-Americans, whose jobs are disproportionately taken by illegals. (As former Mexican President Vicente Fox once charmingly put it, illegal immigrants “are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States.”) 

So why aren’t we being bombarded with television interviews and profiles of these amazing human beings?

Liberals can’t make an argument without producing a victim. Attack the media — they bleat about journalists getting shot in the face while reporting abroad. Complain about FBI corruption — they choke up over G-men putting their lives on the line EVERY DAY! Denounce the Deep State — they moan that CIA officers have been killed in the line of duty.

Isn’t this the moment for our hearts to be breaking over the millions of wonderful “Dreamers” who will suffer unless we amnesty them immediately?

Let’s see ’em! Surely they’ve got a few Einsteins! After all, the media are capable of turning a gang-admiring thug who forcibly robbed a convenience store and assaulted a cop into “Gentle giant, Mike Brown.” They turned jewelry-stealing juvenile delinquent Trayvon Martin into an altar boy.

But even MSNBC dare not show us Trump’s beloved “Dreamers.” The snarling Muslim showcased by the Democrats at their 2016 convention has gotten more airtime than any “Dreamer.”

There are plenty of vague descriptions of “Dreamers,” all of whom seem to be valedictorians. But can anyone identify precisely what they have contributed to our country — other than lots of police work, welfare and protests? The best “Dreamers” always sound like the “honor student” in Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities: “somebody who attends class, isn’t disruptive, tries to learn, and does all right at reading and arithmetic.”

How about MSNBC interview five new “Dreamers” every night? Five non-hateful ones are probably the most they could get.

As long as Trump is going to keep babbling about these “absolutely incredible kids” — “I love these kids!” — and obstinately refuse to deport them, he must have met thousands of them. He plans to amnesty millions. Why doesn’t Trump showcase his favorite two dozen “Dreamers”? Let the rest of us decide how “incredible” they are.

But no Glamour magazine profiles, please! We want to know everything, e.g.:

> How much have they cost the taxpayers in free school lunches and medical care?

> How many anchor babies have they had?

> What percentage have been convicted of a felony or killed someone in a drunk driving accident?

> How many have been admitted to college by taking affirmative action spots intended for the descendants of American slaves?

In 2009, The New York Times’ Lawrence Downes gushed over illegal alien Benita Veliz. Three years later, liberals still hadn’t come up with a better one: In 2012, she was the featured illegal alien at the Democratic National Convention. (It only seems like the Democrats have an illegal alien speak at all their conventions. Veliz was the first.)

Downes ticked off Veliz’s “impressive” accomplishments: “She was valedictorian at Jefferson High School” — naturally! — “graduating at age 16. She went to St. Mary’s University in San Antonio on a full scholarship.” (A scholarship, I note, that otherwise might have gone to a yucky American.)

I gather Veliz is the left’s designated baby seal of “Dreamers.”

Veliz is probably a nice lady, but she was valedictorian at a school that Downes would never send his kids to. Jefferson High School is 98 percent minority, less than half the students are “English proficient,” and only 16 percent are ready for college.

HOW DID AMERICA EVER GET BY WITHOUT HER?

Or to use Downes’ more-relaxed standard: “How will this country be a better place once we force Benita Veliz to leave it?” Off the top of my head: There would be less strain on education budgets, hospital emergency rooms, roads and bridges, and that college scholarship Veliz got would be open to an American kid.

This is a country built by Western Europeans. Immigrants arrived after it was already set up and running well. The idea that any immigrant who hasn’t committed a felony is someone we can’t live without is absurd.

If you’re a yuppie in a rich white area and don’t like cleaning your toilets, the Trump administration has been great for you. But if you’re a Trump voter, you’re scratching your head wondering what happened to those campaign promises that set him apart from every other Republican.

‘Mind-Boggling’ Report Says IRS Ignored 1.3 Million Illegal Alien ID Theft Cases


Reported by Kathryn Blackhurst | Updated 20 Mar 2018 at 9:22 AM

Fox News host Laura Ingraham blasted the IRS for turning a blind eye to 1.3 million cases of identity theft by illegal aliens, saying Monday night on “The Ingraham Angle” that this “mind-boggling” behavior “goes through right to the heart of the lawlessness” deeply entrenched within the federal government.

CNS News reported last week that the IRS fielded 1.3 million cases between 2011 and 2016 in which illegal immigrants received Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN), “which are only given to people who are ineligible to work in the United States or receive Social Security numbers.”

 

After analyzing the data from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), CNS News discovered another 1.2 million cases in 2017 in which illegal immigrants filed tax returns with fabricated or stolen Social Security numbers.

“However, in response to inquiries from CNSNews.com, the IRS could not say if it had referred even one of these cases for criminal prosecution,” CNS News found.

“If you or I cross the IRS, we’re toast, let’s face it,” Ingraham said. “But illegal immigrants can steal IDs and then file for — and get — payments for child tax credits fraudulently and never get prosecuted. This goes through right to the heart of the lawlessness theme that we’re going to be hitting all week long on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’”

The TIGTA report was entitled “Most Employment Identity Theft Victims Have Not Been Notified That Their Identities Are Being Used by Others for Employment.” The report noted that “employment identity theft can cause a significant burden to innocent taxpayers, including the incorrect computation of taxes based on income that does not belong to them.” 

IRS: Tax scams getting more high-tech

And yet the IRS could not say whether any of the cases had been prosecuted, as CNS News found.

“This case of illegal aliens’ filing tax returns with fake numbers, getting refunds with fake information, robbing the U.S. government of tax dollars, is mind-boggling. Yet it’s happening without any prosecution,” Ingraham said.

“The bottom line is there’s document fraud. There is mail fraud. There’s probably wire fraud. This is all fraudulent, and the IRS looks the other way. And I think a lot of it is politics,” she said.

Ingraham blamed Democrats, in particular, for exhibiting what “seems to be this embrace of conflicts of interest, unethical behavior, rank bias, lawlessness — if it helps their political agenda.” This is why “nobody trusts the government today,” Ingraham added.

Joseph Banister (pictured above), a former IRS investigator with his own history of tax controversies, told Ingraham that the IRS “is the original ‘deep state’ operation.”

“They just don’t follow the law. The American people have no idea how much fraud and corruption goes on inside the agency,” Banister said. “I’ve got my wading boots ready for President [Donald] Trump to volunteer and go into the deepest, muckiest part of the swamp, and that’s the IRS.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Found Guilty Of Contempt – The Reason Why Is Pure American Defiance!


Published by ClashDaily.com | August 1, 2017

Gloating leftists are sharing this story for a much different reason than we are.

This verdict will be appealed, of course.

The illegal immigrants who were impacted by his policy, have ironically said they will feel vindicated when they see this Sheriff’s mugshot. People who are ILLEGAL aliens are insisting that the court order should be OBEYED by the Sheriff. That’s pretty rich. These illegal aliens refuse to comply with our laws, and that’s supposed to be ‘perfectly fine’. But somehow, THEY want the law to intervene against the Sheriff, for having applied the law to illegal aliens.

Dizzy yet?

Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio was found guilty on Monday of criminal contempt for defying a judge’s court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.

Arpaio, 85, was charged with misdemeanor contempt of court, declaring that he willfully defied a judge’s order in 2011 and prolonged his patrols for another 17 months, Fox 10 Phoenix reported.

…Arpaio’s lawyers said they would appeal the verdict, contending their client’s legal fate should have been decided by a jury, not a judge. They also said U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton violated Arpaio’s rights by not reading the decision in court.

“Her verdict is contrary to what every single witness testified in the case,” his lawyers said in a statement. “Arpaio believes that a jury would have found in his favor, and that it will.”FOX

You may remember when this same Sheriff fought against Obama’s Executive Orders concerning Immigration. We love that he was committed to enforcing the law, despite how our prissy 44th President overreached his authority.

The attorney representing Maricopa County’s controversy-prone Sheriff Joe Arpaio urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to reverse a district judge’s December ruling and allow the case to proceed. Arpaio, known for his feisty, public battle against illegal immigration, is looking to reverse President Barack Obama’s executive orders allowing illegal immigrants who came as children to the U.S. or undocumented parents of legal residents to stay in the U.S.

Attorney Larry Klayman urged the three-judge panel Monday not to consider the case as a political dispute, but rather one about “whether the law is being enforced or not” — which both conservatives and liberal should support, he said. —CNN

Our Constitution and Rule of Law have to mean something, or they become useless for protecting our citizens.

Immigration Judges Dispatched to 12 U.S. Cities to Speed Deportations


Reported by Warner Todd Huston | 19 Mar 2017

URL of the original posting site: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/03/19/immigration-judges-dispatched-12-u-s-cities-speed-deportations/

Cities the DOJ want to staff up includes New York; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; San Francisco; Baltimore, Bloomington, Minnesota; El Paso, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Imperial, California; Omaha, Nebraska, and Phoenix, Arizona, the news service says.

This isn’t the first move to beef up immigration judge staff. Early in March the Trump administration also began sending judges to immigrant detention centers to speed up services.

The initial plan came on the heels of a Department of Homeland Security memo that requested the Trump administration allow federal immigration courts to use “expedited deportation proceedings” for any illegal immigrants living in the U.S. for two years or less. The process is currently limited to those only living in the U.S. for up to two weeks.

According to data provided by the Justice Department’s Executive Office of Immigration Review, there are up to 18,013 pending immigration cases in the cities targeted by the DOJ plan. The plan serves as another plank in President Trump’s promise to step up the deportations that ground to a halt during the last years of the Obama administration. It also marks a shift from Obama’s practice of deporting only illegals convicted of serious crimes — and even many of those were never deported.

Critics of the plan claim that “reshuffling” the judges will only cause a backlog at the courts that lost one of their judges.
