U.S. Considers 6 Military Bases to House Illegal Immigrants

Judicial Watch

A year after fierce opposition disrupted a contentious plan to use American military bases as shelters for illegal immigrants, the Obama administration is quietly working to make it happen and six facilities throughout the nation are currently being considered.

Under the plan the military installations would house droves of under-aged illegal immigrants, officially known as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), who have entered the country from Central America in the last two years. Most have come from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and they’re being relocated to states across the nation to make room for more in the overwhelmed Mexican border region. Judicial Watch has covered the crisis extensively and in 2014 reported that a hangar at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, Texas was being covertly used as an illegal alien processing center for UACs. At the time the administration was under fire for using three military installations— Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Ventura County Naval Base in southern California and Ft. Still Army Base in Oklahoma—to process the barrage of illegal immigrant youths that had crossed into the U.S. through Mexico.

Now the administration has revived its controversial idea to house UACs in active military facilities. The Pentagon quietly notified lawmakers from the jurisdictions where the bases are located during the holidays when things are slow and many take vacation. One of them is Alabama Congresswoman Martha Roby, who like many of her colleagues is outraged. Roby has made the Department of Defense (DOD) notice, delivered via electronic mail, public. It’s signed by Matthew Rhoades, a legislative affairs policy chief to the Secretary of Defense, and says that six DOD facilities were being assessed this month for use “as a temporary shelter for unaccompanied children.” The installations on the short list are Maxwell Air Force Base in Congresswoman Roby’s Alabama district, Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida, Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota, Naval Support Activity in Pennsylvania, Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts and Travis Air Force Base in California.

The Pentagon notice says that the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is “expanding its capacity to provide shelter for the current influx of Unaccompanied Children at the U.S. Southern Border.” An increase in shelter capacity is a prudent step to ensure ORR meets its “statutory responsibility” to provide the illegal immigrant youths with shelter, the document states. Besides the military bases, HHS is also activating two federal facilities in the next few months to house UACs. The first is an 800-bed facility that will open in Homestead, Florida in February and the other is a 1,000-bed facility in Lakewood, Colorado that will begin taking UACs in April.

Roby has vowed to fight the plan to bring detained illegal alien minors to Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base as she did a year ago when the administration first considered it as a UAC shelter. “This is a terrible idea,” the congresswoman writes in a Montgomery newspaper piece published this week. “Our active military installations have very important jobs to do,” Roby writes. “At Maxwell-Gunter, that includes things like training, education and cyber activities, many times in classified settings that are very sensitive. There’s no question in my mind that forcing our base to house and secure hundreds of illegal minors would negatively impact the mission. We cannot allow that to happen.”

Terrorists Within Our Borders

Our national parks along the border are safe havens for smugglers and jihadis.

The U.S. Border Patrol nabbed two Pakistani men with ties to terrorism at the U.S.-Mexico border in September, and it is only the latest known instance of illegal immigrants from so-called “special interest countries” using the southern border as a point of entry into the country.

The men, Muhammad Azeem and Mukhtar Ahmad, both in their 20s and from Gujrat, were caught Sept. 20 by agents south of San Diego and just over the international border from Tijuana.

When agents checked their identities through databases they got hits on both of them:

Mr. Ahmad – associate of a known or suspected terrorist
Mr. Azeem – Information had been shared by a foreign government for “intelligence purposes”

They had been processed in Panama two months earlier which points to them have used the smuggling apparatus to sneak into the United States.

Undocumented Citizen? The Absurd New Word for Illegal Aliens

The Daily Sheeple

Over the years there has been a politically correct progression of words to describe those who come to the United States illegally. At first it was illegal aliens, then illegal immigrants, followed by undocumented immigrants or undocumented workers. Of course, the perpetually offended PC crowd is always looking for gentle new words to describe the obvious, so they’ve come up with something that defies all logic.

The Multicultural Involvement and Community Advocacy office at the University of Maryland has displayed posters on campus that are part of their “inclusive language campaign.” The poster lists “offensive” terms, followed by their politically correct counterparts, one of which reads “Would you say [illegal aliens] if you knew I am an undocumented citizen?” Other statements on the poster are critical of those who would say “retarded” in front of the disabled, “ghetto” in the presence of the poor, or “raped” within earshot of someone who has been sexually assaulted.

This is the inevitable endpoint of politically correct language. Some of us are so sensitive that we can no longer use words that make sense. There is no such thing as an undocumented citizen. Someone who is not documented, is by definition, not a citizen. Don’t tell that to the Nicole Mehta, head of the university’s Common Ground Multicultural Dialogue Program. She claims that the term undocumented citizen was determined by students through surveys and focus groups.

“The overall purpose of the Inclusive Language Campaign is to get individuals to stop and think about the language we use and how language can impact others and our communities. The use of ‘undocumented citizen’ seeks to avoid dehumanization of an entire group of individuals.” 

Will Five Justices Give One Man Control of US Immigration Law?

President Barack Obama told the truth – perhaps by accident – when he spoke last November at a Chicago community center.

Hecklers shouted at him for not doing enough, in their view, to stop deportations. He responded by defending his new policy.

“I understand you may disagree. But we’ve got to be able to talk honestly about these issues. All right?” said Obama, according to the White House transcript.

“Now, you’re absolutely right that there have been significant numbers of deportations. That’s true,” he said. “But what you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took action to change the law.”

Yes, Obama put it in the first-person singular: ‘I just took action to change the law.”

What law did Obama change?

Obama Civil Rights Chair Calling to Free Illegal Aliens was on Mexican-American Legal Defense Board

JUDICIAL WATCH

There’s enormous controversy surrounding a new U.S. Commission on Civil Rights report calling for the release of illegal immigrants from detention centers nationwide due to widespread “egregious human rights and constitutional violations.”

The commission is an independent and bipartisan federal agency created by Congress decades ago to advance civil rights through “objective and comprehensive investigation, research and analysis.” However, the agency’s chairman, Obama appointee Martin Castro, determined that illegal immigrant detention centers in the U.S. were cesspools of human rights violations before the commission completed its study, according to at least two commissioners on the panel.  This appears to be part of a broader effort by the Obama administration to protect and help illegal aliens at American taxpayer expense.

Illegal Immigrants’ War on Americans

Let’s establish a metaphor right at the beginning between parasitical bagworms and parasitical Leftists/Liberals. Both species are destructive. The metaphor will have a bearing on the subject.

If you poke through a bagworm nest with a twig, you’ll find countless striped, furry worms or caterpillars eating away the bark and meat of a tree branch, thus killing the tree. If you poke through the mind of a Leftist/Liberal, you’ll find countless fuzzy worms ravenously eating away at the fabric of America, thus killing the country: gay marriage, Obamacare, the Clintons, Bernie Sanders, Marxist academics, jihadist imams, ambipolitical corporations, and so on. And some dead bagworms, like Ted Kennedy.

If you step on a bagworm, it will spurt pink goo on the sole of your shoe. If you examine the mind of a Leftist/Liberal, it will spurt pink goo all over you in revenge for exposing the malignity of his agenda.

Barack Obama is waging another war in his role as the Supreme Social Justice Warrior and Community Organizer-in-Chief, not in Libya, not in Iraq, not in Syria, but in and against America. He is doing this – aside from his destructive economic and political policies – with illegals who are swarming unchecked and at his invitation across the Mexican border by the thousands to “settle” in the U.S., not to become productive citizens, but to feed on the government welfare state teat – that is on the American taxpayer. The criminals among them have declared open season on principally white Americans.

He is also doing it by admitting thousands of “refugee” Muslims. He is settling the Mexicans (a blanket name for any Central or South American crossing into the U.S. from Mexico) and Muslims, particularly Somalian Muslims, in dozens of towns and cities across the country with the stated policy of changing their demographic compositions. And also, not coincidentally,  their political demographics, to help perpetuate the Democrats’ death grip on America.

Open-Borders Sociology Prof. Behind New DHS Rule Freeing Illegal Alien Families

JUDICIAL WATCH

A renowned open-borders sociology professor with published research on “victims of deportation policies” is behind the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) new regulation ordering the release of illegal immigrant families in U.S. custody.

This week DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the outrageous new policy that will let illegal immigrant families go free in the U.S. All they have to do is claim a “credible or reasonable fear of persecution in their home countries,” Johnson said. The country’s top homeland security official explained that he decided to create this new measure after conducting numerous visits to family residential centers, including one in Karnes, Texas, where he spoke to the Central American mothers who “came to this country seeking a better life for their children and themselves.”

Based on the detention center visits and chats with illegal immigrants Johnson concluded that the government had to make “substantial changes” in detention practices with respect to families with children. “In short, once a family has established eligibility for asylum or other relief under our laws, long-term detention is an inefficient use of our resources and should be discontinued,” Johnson said. DHS is also ensuring access to lawyers, paid for by American taxpayers, for the detained illegal aliens as well as social workers, educational services and comprehensive medical care.
