Immigration: The deportation rules announced this week by Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly were greeted with the expected outrage from the usual suspects. But since when is enforcing the law a crime?

In this case, the law that Kelly plans to enforce is the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which was approved by 52 Democrats in the Senate and 202 Democrats in the House in a Democrat-controlled Congress and was signed into law by President Johnson, a Democrat.

That hasn’t stopped today’s Democrats from decrying the DHS memo as obscene and horribly un-American.

Russian Hacking Report like Obama’s Birth Certificate “Poorly Done”

OBAMA LIAR LIAR

Family Security Matters

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD

 

The joint report issued by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI about alleged Russian cyberattacks during the 2016 election titled “Grizzly Steppe” is as definitive as a scattering of unconnected dots.

According to Jeffrey Carr, author of “Inside Cyber Warfare,” the report “merely listed every threat group ever reported on by a commercial cybersecurity company that is suspected of being Russian-made and lumped them under the heading of Russian Intelligence Services (RIS) without providing any supporting evidence that such a connection exists.”

Family Security Matters

by JIM KOURI, CPP

One of the main issues that propelled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to victory was the promise of a wall being built at the United States border with Mexico. The response by the news media, their favorite Democratic politicians and illegal-immigration advocates was astounding, with newspapers, magazines, television, radio and the Internet awash in comments that Trump was a racist, a bigot, and a xenophobic bully.

But the truth — noticeably avoided by the media — is that the U.S. Congress passed a bill and it was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2006 ordering a wall to be built at the U.S.-Mexican border and more Border Patrol agents should be hired for the Southern border.

“The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008, required DHS to complete construction by December 31, 2008, of either 370 miles or other mileage determined by the Secretary, of reinforced fencing along the southwest border wherever the Secretary determines it would be most practical and effective in deterring smugglers and aliens attempting illegal entry,” according to Global Security.

DHS just granted instant amnesty and benefits to over 8 thousand refugees; well, that was easy

Whether they are in the U.S. legally or not, more than 8,000 Syrian refugees in the country were just granted asylum by the federal government.

The Department of Homeland Security granted temporary protected status to the Syrian citizens, despite fears of ISIS terrorists slipping in through the program, Fox News reported.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said the “humanitarian crisis” the refugees face in their homeland has made it impossible for them to return.

Though the program, which was created in 1990, is supposed to grant the protected status to refugees temporarily, critics have argued there is nothing temporary about it. No one has ever been required to leave due to an expiring status.

The amnesty will provide the immigrants with a work permit, Social Security number, drivers license and welfare eligibility. Typically, the status is granted to a select group of refugees who are affected by a specific event, like an earthquake.

“This is kind of a rolling amnesty,” reported Fox News’ William La Jeunesse. “This designation, however, not only grandfathers in all Syrians who have been arriving before 2012 but all who’ve arrived since then” and does not expire until 2018.

Critics slam the program for its inability to properly vet incoming refugees and protect against possible terrorist threats. Those who are enrolled in the program also get a “free pass” to citizenship, critics argue, by marrying a citizen or green card holder.

At present, there are 300,000 immigrants living in the U.S. from 12 countries who have been granted protected status, some as far back as the 1990s, according to Fox News.

What Is DHS Hiding from the Public About the Dallas Shooter?

Daily Sheeple

Of all people, it was Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson who first announced and confirmed to the public that there was only one shooter in Dallas (after news reports varied from two shooters to four and repeatedly described triangulated gunfire). Then there’s the “misreporting” (above) on exactly how the suspected shooter died…

But here’s a question: why was DHS so involved in the first place?

Via Daily Caller:

Officials at the Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit government oversight group, are seeking documents they believe may show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is withholding vital information about the Dallas shooter from the public. Micah Johnson killed five police officers in Dallas July 7 before police killed him with a bomb delivered by a robot…

“Because Secretary Johnson appears to be the first public official to confirm that only one shooter existed, it raises questions as to what extent DHS was involved during the aftermath of the shooting and why local authorities were not first in alerting the public.”

“Additionally, discrepancies between statements by President Obama and the Dallas police chief raise concerns that there may be additional information about the motives of the gunman that are being withheld from the public by the Obama administration,” Lechner continued.

DHS May Ban “Religiously-Charged” Terms Jihad, Sharia to Avert “Us versus Them” in Anti-Terror Programs

words-Large

JUDICIAL WATCH

 

Four years after the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) purged anti-terrorism training material determined to be offensive to Muslims, its umbrella agency, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), may eliminate divisive Islamic terms like “jihad” and “sharia” in government programs targeting radicalization among youth.

It’s political correctness run amok and the Obama administration has played a central role in promoting it by caving in to the demands of various Muslim rights groups. In this latest case a Homeland Security Advisory Council is recommending that, to avoid “us versus them” when discussing extremism, certain “religiously-charged” terminology must be avoided. This includes using “American Muslim” rather than “Muslim American” and rejecting religious, legal and cultural terms like jihad, sharia, takfir and umma. Jihad is the holy war that propels Islamic terrorism. Sharia is the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists-including the world’s most violent groups such as Al Qaeda-and their jihadism. Takfir and umma are Arabic terms that mean apostasy and Muslim community.

DHS ordered me to scrub records of Muslims with terror ties

The Hill

Amid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Twenty-three-year old Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be arrested. The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United States failed, that time.

Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.”

Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, his condemnation caused. His words infuriated many of us because we knew his administration had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the raw material—the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and erase those dots. The dots constitute the intelligence needed to keep Americans safe, and the Obama administration was ordering they be wiped away.

Orlando Terrorist Worked at Security Co. Hired by DHS to Transport, Release Illegal Aliens

Judicial Watch

The ISIS terrorist who committed the worst mass shooting in U.S. history worked for a security company contracted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to protect federal facilities nationwide and transport illegal immigrants apprehended in the southern border region. Earlier this month Judicial Watch launched an investigation into the Florida-based security firm, G4S, after breaking a story about illegal immigrants being quietly transported from the Mexican border to Phoenix and getting released without proper processing or court appearance documents.

G4S was contracted by DHS to drive the group of illegal aliens, classified as Other Than Mexican (OTM), from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector where they were in custody to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. The OTMs were from Honduras, Colombia, El Salvador and Guatemala and Border Patrol officials told Judicial Watch they were in custody for a couple of days and ordered to call family members in the U.S. so they could purchase a bus ticket. Authorities didn’t bother checking the identity of the U.S. relatives or if they’re in the country legally, according to a Border Patrol official directly involved in the matter.

Judicial Watch was on the scene when several vanloads of OTMs arrived at the Phoenix Greyhound station on Buckeye Road just a few days ago. A photo accompanying our story shows one of the uniformed G4S guards that drove a vanload of OTMs from Tucson to Phoenix earlier this month. G4S claims to be the world’s leading security solutions group with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees. G4S has more than 50,000 employees in the U.S. and its domestic headquarters is in Jupiter, Florida. Judicial Watch has filed a number of public records requests to get more information involving the arrangement between G4S and the government, specifically the transport of illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to other parts of the country.

The investigation will expand to include documents and information pertinent to Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, an Afghan-American with two firearms licenses and a security officer license. Early Sunday morning the veteran G4S security guard carried out the savage attack in an Orlando nightclub, killing 49 and injuring dozens of others. A multitude of media reports have confirmed that Mateen worked for G4S for nearly a decade even though he had been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for terrorist ties. In one Florida newspaper report the security company confirms that Mateen has been a security guard, with a firearms license, since September 10, 2007. A former co-worker told another Florida media outlet that Mateen regularly made threats of violence and that he was an angry, loud, profane man who used slurs for gay people, blacks, Jews and women.

In 2013 Mateen was investigated by the FBI for terrorism ties and his connections to an American named Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha who carried out a suicide bombing in Syria. Both men are from the Ft. Pierce area in Florida’s so-called “Treasure Coast.” The federal probe didn’t seem to impact Mateen’s work at G4S however, because there was no disruption in his employment, even after he openly praised ISIS. This is astounding considering that the agency created after 9/11 to prevent another terrorist attack has a $234 million contract with G4S to provide security services for a number of federal agencies, including the nation’s nuclear facilities and the departments of Labor, Justice, Energy, State as well as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Ironically, the government’s contract with G4S stipulates that the company helps identify “suspected terrorists” trying to enter the U.S. and helps the feds with emergency responses to terror threats.

TSA Failures Keep U.S. Train System Vulnerable to Terrorist Attack

JUDICIAL WATCH

The nation’s train system remains dangerously vulnerable to a terrorist attack because the agency created after 9/11 to protect it hasn’t bothered implementing crucial security measures, including performing background checks on frontline railroad employees. You can’t make this stuff up. A decade and a half after Islamic terrorists used commercial planes to carry out the worst attack on American soil, the government can’t seem to fulfill its obligation to adequately protect all transportation systems.

It involves the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the famously inept multi-billion-dollar agency created by Congress to secure the nation’s transportation system after the 2001 attacks. Judicial Watch has reported on a multitude of TSA transgressions over the years and sued the agency to uncover documents detailing sexually-related assaults on passengers by agents at three major U.S. airports. Over the years the TSA has made headlines for missing weapons and bombs during test security checks, hiring an accused child molester without a background check, clearing flight training for illegal immigrants, letting terrorists slip past its highly trained behavior detection officers and failing to properly vet airport workers with access to sensitive areas. A few years ago TSA missed a piece of luggage that somehow got on a commercial plan and exploded after landing in south Florida. The list of transgressions goes on and on.

In this latest case, an audit conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General reveals that the nation’s passenger train system-known as Amtrak-has been treated like a stepchild when it comes to security. This is worrisome, the watchdog points out, because recent global events highlight the vulnerability of rail systems to terrorist attacks and the importance of security for passengers. As an example, the DHS IG lists in its report the August 2015 incident in which armed gunman terrorized a passenger train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris. The plot inspired two members of Congress to request that the TSA provide an update on the state of domestic rail security, including the implementation of recommendations made by the 9/11 Commission. It’s not pretty. The agency has neither implemented 9/11 Commission requirements or key passenger rail requirements, according to the IG.

This is a major transportation system with 300 trains that travel throughout 46 states and Canada with about 31 million passengers annually. Legislation passed after 9/11 requires the TSA to take a number of rail security measures that the agency has evidently blown off. Among them is a national railroad security strategy, assigning rail carriers to risk-based tiers and creating a training program for rail carriers. The TSA is also supposed to perform background checks for frontline railroad employees as it’s supposed to do for airport workers. Why is this bloated agency dragging its feet? Investigators reveal in their findings that the TSA is blaming it all on the “complex federal rulemaking process.” Keep in mind it’s been eight years since legislation was passed mandating the agency to create a system to protect passenger trains.

It’s not like money hasn’t been allocated to railroad security but the absence of a concrete, organized plan has resulted in waste while the system remains vulnerable. Back in 2011 JW reported that DHS gave Amtrak more than $1 billion to bolster security but the money wasn’t spent efficiently to adequately protect the most vulnerable stations. This occurred because DHS simply doled out the cash but never followed up to ensure it was being properly and effectively spent on security. DHS never required Amtrak to develop a corrective action plan to address its biggest vulnerabilities, approved lower risk projects and didn’t document roles and responsibilities for the grant award process, according to a federal audit. “As a result, some rail stations and the traveling public may be at a greater risk to a potential terrorist attack,” investigators determined. This was five years ago and it seems that little has changed amid growing threats of a terrorist attack.

DHS Says Mexican Border “More Secure now than it has Been in Many, Many Years”

Illegal Immigration_border_crossing_large-699x330

JUDICIAL WATCH

Islamic terrorists and droves of illegal immigrants-mainly youths-have slipped into the United States through Mexico recently, but the deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) insists the “the border is more secure now than it has been in many, many years.” This delusional assessment brings to mind when President Obama’s first DHS secretary, Janet Napolitano, repeatedly proclaimed the border is as secure as it’s ever been amid escalating drug-cartel violence that spilled into the U.S. and a crisis of narcotics and human smuggling in the region.

Though the situation has only worsened, the administration continues to repeat the same lies even though a number of reports have confirmed that Islamic terrorists have entered the U.S. through the famously porous southern border and tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) keep crossing in without ever encountering federal agents before touching American soil. If anything the southern border has become a national security threat of epic proportions, illustrated by Judicial Watch’s reporting in the last few years. More on that after touching on the latest DHS distortion delivered a few days ago at a global travel and tourism summit in Dallas, Texas. Keep in mind that the event is a forum for business leaders in the travel and tourism industry and the goal is promoting travel. In fact, the forum’s motto was “travel beyond boundaries.”
