Obama Judge: Mexican Border Fence May Have “Disparate Impact” on Minorities

Image

If this Judge is anything like Obama, the alternative title to this story should be, Border Fence is Racist. Now that sounds like an Obama supporter. Anything negative about Obama or any of his ideas is racist. I wonder if it will still be racist when a group of terrorist cross our Southern Border and  start blowing things up? Hey, somebody has to ask.          1 Dragon

A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities.”

This of course means that protecting the porous—and increasingly violent—southern border is politically incorrect. At least that’s what the public college professor at the center of the case is working to prove and this month she got help from a sympathetic federal judge. Denise Gilman, a clinical professor at the taxpayer-funded University of Texas-Austin, is researching the “human rights impact” of erecting a barrier to protect the U.S. from terrorists, illegal immigrants, drug traffickers and other serious threats.

DHS tells American border guards to run away from illegal immigrants hurling rocks at them

Image

Free Republic

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug cargoes.

“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol.

Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by.

Agents can’t use guns against “a moving vehicle merely fleeing from agents,” say the instructions.

The new instructions do allow agents to use guns to defend themselves from vehicles that drive at them. “Agents shall not discharge their firearms at a moving vehicle unless the agent has a reasonable belief that… deadly force is being used against an agent,” the new instructions say.

However, the instructions also suggest that officers be penalized if they don’t step back. Agents “should not place themselves in the path of a motor vehicle or use their body to block a vehicles’s path,” according to new instructions.

The new curbs were praised by advocates for greater immigration, including Juanita Molina, director of the Border Action Network. New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez, and Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Menendez is one of the drafters of the June 2013 Senate immigration bill, which would boost the inflow of legal immigrants and guest workers up to 40 million over the next decade. During the same period, roughly 40 million Americans will turn 18.

No, an illegal immigrant should not be admitted to the bar

American Thinker

We just learned that California is doing something rather unusual. They are allowing an illegal immigrant to join the state bar:

 

“As a teenager in Northern California, Sergio Garcia worked in the almond fields and in a grocery store, earning his way through college and then law school.

He passed the California bar exam on his first try, something just half of all candidates do.  

But when it came time to apply for his law license, Mr. Garcia encountered a formidable hurdle: Because he had come from Mexico illegally, he could not become a lawyer.   

That changed Thursday when the California Supreme Court ruled unanimously that a law passed last fall by the Legislature allowed Mr. Garcia, 36, to be admitted to the state bar and practice law.

What it did not do is address the fact that under federal law, no law firm, business or public agency can legally hire him.”

 

Let’s look at this story because it speaks volumes about the cowardice of the liberal elites running California over the cliff.

Judge: Obama administration can’t refuse to arrest illegal immigrants

Free Republic

A federal judge said this week that the Obama administration is likely violating the law by telling immigration agents and officers not to arrest illegal immigrants they deem low priority, in a case that could upend President Obama’s enforcement policy.

For the last several years the administration has said it will no longer arrest most illegal immigrants, arguing it wants to focus only on those with serious criminal records or gang ties. The Homeland Security department said it was using “prosecutorial discretion.”

Immigration agents and officers sued, saying federal law requires them to make the arrests, but the Obama administration would discipline them if they complied with the law.

Federal Judge Reed O’Connor said in a court order Tuesday that Congress, not the president, sets priority for arresting illegal immigrants, and said the law requires them to be put in deportation proceedings.

“The court finds that DHS does not have discretion to refuse to initiate removal proceedings,” Judge O’Connor wrote.

U.S. Releases “Waves” of Illegal Immigrants from Custody

Judicial Watch

Never one to let a crisis go to waste, President Obama is using impending budget cuts to justify releasing “waves” of illegal immigrants from detention centers throughout the country.

Groups of illegal aliens have been freed this week from facilities in Texas, Florida and Louisiana, according to a mainstream newspaper story that quotes advocates reporting “waves” being released. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed the secret liberation program, but wouldn’t say how many illegal immigrants were let go or what facilities they came from.

Is Obama making himself ‘legal’ in removing 800,000 illegal immigrants from deportation?

CFP

Knowing now that nothing ever happens by chance with Barack Hussein Obama; that everything is, and has been scripted for him by Marxist progressives, shouldn’t folk be looking beyond the obvious on his Executive Order on Amnesty?

Is Barack Obama’s Amnesty bombshell removing  800,000 illegal immigrants from the deportation process the X That Marks the Spot to the real reason why his birth certificate remains missing?

Is the more valid number taken off the deportation process 800,000 illegal immigrants—and one?  Is Obama granting amnesty to himself?

Romneycare Funded Healthcare For Illegal Immigrants – Just Like Obamacare

Gateway Pundit

This isn’t good…
Just last week Governor Mitt Romney lectured Governor Rick Perry on his immigration record:

“You put in place a magnet to draw illegals into the state, which was giving $100,000 of tuition credit to illegals that come into this country, and then you have states — the big states of illegal immigrants are California and Florida.”

Here’s the video:

 

Now we find out that Romneycare funded healthcare for illegal immigrants…  Just like Obamacare does.  It was a magnate to draw illegals into the state.
The National Review reported:

Mitt Romney, who has called government-funded programs that offer assistance to illegal immigrants “magnets” that draw more illegal immigrants to the country, allowed a health-care program that helps illegal immigrations to be included in the final version of his health-care program that he signed. From the Los Angeles Times:

The Massachusetts healthcare law that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006 includes a program known as the Health Safety Net, which allows undocumented immigrants to get needed medical care along with others who lack insurance.

Uninsured, poor immigrants can walk into a health clinic or hospital in the state and get publicly subsidized care at virtually no cost to them, regardless of their immigration status.

Related…In 2009 between 46,000 and 49,000 Massachusetts residents were fined under that state’s Romneycare law for not having health insurance, or for having a policy that did not include all the mandated coverages imposed by that law.

Outrageous: Obama Announces De Facto Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants, Will Allow Those Facing Deportation To Stay In America Indefinitely…

Weasel Zippers

Could it be because he’s facing a brutal reelection effort and needs every vote he can muster?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government says many illegal immigrants who don’t have criminal records but are facing possible deportation will get to stay in the U.S. indefinitely and have a chance to apply for a work permit.

Deporting illegal immigrants who are convicted criminals will be the Obama administration’s priority.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says authorities will make a case-by-case review of the approximately 300,000 illegal immigrants who are facing possible deportation.

Immigration advocates say the Obama administration hasn’t lived up to its promise to only deport the “worst of the worst,” as the president has said.

Announcement about the new review probably will anger Republicans who contend that Obama has been too lenient on illegal immigrants.

Obama’s ineligibility: It is time to create a genuine opposition

The 2012 election is underway and it will be a street fight, whose outcome will determine if the United States survives as a republic.

It is futile writing to Congress for the redress of grievances. They are only interested in getting elected, not in representing their  constituents.

Tennessee Considers Arizona-style Law

Fox

Tennessee’s legislators plan to consider a bill next year styled after Arizona’s SB 1070, even though the state already has strict laws targeting illegal immigrants.

State Sen. Bill Ketron and Rep. Joe Carr, both Republicans, are preparing a bill that criminalizes illegal immigrants and authorizes local law enforcement authorities to detain “any person” suspected of being in the country unlawfully.
