You Want Executive Action? Here’s Some Executive Action

National Review

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t:

  • Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law;
  • Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated;
  • Cancel visas to any country that won’t take back its own citizens;
  • Stop the improper issuance of billions of dollars in child tax credits to illegal immigrants,
  • Enforce the currently un-enforced public charge rule for immigrants to the U.S., both legal and illegal;
  • Crack down on abuse of the H-1B guest worker program that is displacing U.S. workers;
  • Increase, don’t reduce, prosecutions under the proven Operation Streamline;
  • Instead of suing states that are trying to enforce the law, target sanctuary cities that are defying the law; and
  • Cancel all meetings with pro-amnesty groups to plot executive amnesty, and instead meet with Chris Crane, Ken Palinkas, and Chris Cabrera (of ICE, USCIS, and Border Patrol). Instead of ordering them not to do their jobs, sit down with them ask what they need to end the lawlessness and restore integrity to our nation’s immigration system.”

My colleague Jessica Vaughan points out that the president has the authority “to deny admission to any alien that has (or cannot establish to the government’s satisfaction that he or she doesn’t have) a communicable disease of public health significance.”

And Christian Adams explains that the president has even broader power than that, citing the statute that allows him to bar entry to any foreigner for any reason:

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

So, with all these lawful executive powers, why is he ignoring them and claiming powers he does not have?

DHS secret revealed: Thousands of illegals released didn’t show up for their immigration hearings

Of course they didn’t. Who thought they would? This is precisely what amnesty shills have in mind when they demand “due process” for illegals. You’re detained, you’re given a date to meet with immigration agents or appear before an immigration judge to decide whether you’ll be deported, and then you’re sent on your merry way into the United States — never to be seen by the state again. The point of “due process” is to give illegals an easy way to avoid the process. DHS understands this.

So rest easy. Our immigration system is working exactly the way it’s supposed to.

An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow up appointments.

The ICE official made the disclosure in a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies. The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesday’s meeting and separately interviewed participants.

On the recording obtained by the AP, the government did not specify the total number of families released into the U.S. since October. Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70% figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices.

The same ICE official admitted that, of at least 860 people caught entering the U.S. since May and subsequently slapped with an order of final deportation, 14 showed up to be deported. Let me stress, in case the boldface above didn’t catch your attention, you’re not supposed to know any of this.

The Feds Let Go of Dozens of Convicted Murder Illegal Immigrants, See Where They Are on This Map

NRO

The Center for Immigration Studies has used information provided to the office Senator Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) to map out the locations of where convicted killers were let go by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in 2013. The killers were booked out in 24 states and were associated with 96 different cities, according to the CIS report. The following map shows with red dots the ZIP codes where they were released and with blue squares the ICE centers where they were booked out:

The state where the greatest number of illegal immigrants with homicide-related convictions were reportedly released was California. CIS says the city or town with the greatest concentration of convicted-killer illegal immigrants was Miami, followed by Los Angeles and the Bronx.

“Dreamer” Convicted of Killing 2 Girls Spared Deportation Under Obama Amnesty

An illegal immigrant protected by President Obama’s amnesty for “Dreamers” (brought to the United States through no fault of their own as children) will not be deported after getting convicted of felony hit-and-run for killing two little girls playing in a leaf pile.

The shocking story comes out of a small town near Portland Oregon, a city that has long offered illegal aliens sanctuary. In fact, the entire state of Oregon is a sanctuary for those in the country illegally and all law enforcement officers are banned from using any public resources to locate or capture illegal immigrants. This case involves a 19-year-old woman, Cinthya ­Garcia-Cisneros, living illegally in the U.S. since she was four years old. She’s the classic candidate for the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) directive, which grants illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as youngsters a two-year deferment from deportation.

Under DACA, implemented in 2012, Garcia-Cisneros received a work permit, driver’s license and Social Security number. Last fall she slammed a sports utility vehicle into a leaf pile, killing 6-year-old and 11-year-old stepsisters, then she fled and her boyfriend helped cover up the crime. The horrific crash occurred in Forest Grove, which is about 25 miles west of Portland. Garcia-Cisneros got arrested the following day and her boyfriend is in jail for hindering prosecution. Earlier this year a jury found her guilty of two counts of felony hit-and-run. Even under DACA, the illegal immigrant should have been deported so she was taken to an immigration detention center in Tacoma, Washington months ago to complete removal proceedings.

Leaked CBP Report Shows Entire World Exploiting Open U.S. Border

Illegal Fence Hopping BORDER Large

Family Security Matters

LUBBOCK, Texas – A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries. The report was obtained by a trusted source within the CBP agency who leaked the document and spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity. The report is labeled as “Unclassified//For Official Use Only” and indicates that the data should be handled as “Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU).”

The numbers provided are in graphics and are broken down into “OFO” and “OBP.” The Customs and Border Protection agency is divided into the Office of Field Operations (OFO) and the Office of Border Patrol (OBP). The OFO numbers reflect anyone either turning themselves in at official U.S. points of entry, or anyone caught while being smuggled at the points of entry. The OBP numbers reflect anyone being caught or turning themselves in to Border Patrol agents between the points of entry, or anyone caught at interior checkpoints by Border Patrol agents. The “OFO Inadmissible” designation to any individual from a nation other than Mexico or Canada means that U.S. authorities took the individuals into custody. Whether they were deported or given a Notice to Appear is unknown. It is important to note these numbers do not include data from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The unavailable ICE data are in addition to these numbers.

The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred.

Oklahoma Governor: ICE Sent Us 1,200 Illegal Alien Children – Including 90 From India

Weasel Zippers

Governor Mary Fallin (R-OK) told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that the feds sent 1,200 illegal immigrant children to Oklahoma to hold for 120 days. 90 of those illegal children were from India.

“Because they are children, we want them to be fed, and have appropriate medical care, certainly be safe within the facilities, and they’re segregated. BUt, one of the things I’ve heard since they’ve been there and it was reported while I was there actually, that there were not only El Salvadoran children, and Honduras, and Guatemala, but there were 90 children reported to be from India that were actually at the facility. And, one of the case workers told my secretary of health that we had people there besides South American children.”

Soros Funded Pro-Immigrant Group to Target Waco

An email alert was sent out this afternoon from the Detention Watch Network. They plan a protest event tomorrow morning at the Jack Harwell Detention Center in Waco, Tx. According to them, this facility is just not quite good enough for the detaining of immigrants due to issues such as a lack of a legal library there, no on site medical facility, etc. However, previous complaints they have made to ICE were not given any validation:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is committed to providing all detainees in our custody with safe detention environments. The Jack Harwell Detention Center meets the applicable ICE detention standards and has successfully passed inspection reviews. Independent detention inspections are conducted by private contractors with extensive corrections experience to ensure quality assurance over the review process, consistency in the application of detention standards, and verification of corrective actions, if any. ICE is open to discussing any concerns with our partnering agencies regarding the detainees housed at their facilities.”

Their headline suggests that this is just the beginning of a highly orchestrated national effort:
