A Democrat leaning newspaper in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota has found new evidence that the representative committed immigration fraud.
The rumors have been rampant since she got into elected office that she married her brother in order to circumvent immigration laws.
And now The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, who endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, says it has found new information that show the rumors could be true.
New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.
Omar has denied the allegations in the past, dismissing them as “baseless rumors” first raised in an online Somali politics forum and championed by conservative bloggers during her 2016 campaign for the Minnesota House.
But she said little then or since about Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, the former husband who swept into her life in 2009 before a 2011 separation.
Sent a list of questions and a request to talk to her siblings and father, Omar declined to do so. Hirsi did not reply to multiple calls, texts and e-mails. Social media posts indicate Elmi is in Africa. He did not respond to multiple e-mails.
Omar’s reticence is consistent with near total silence she has maintained for three years amid questions raised through public records picked over by conservative opinion journalists intent on proving that she committed immigration fraud. Those attacks, she once tweeted, are the provenance of “fake journalists on bigoted blogs.”
Omar spokesman Jeremy Slevin issued a statement Friday asserting that the questions about her personal life are illegitimate:
“Since before she was elected to office, Ilhan has been the subject of conspiracy theories and false accusations about her personal life.
“Emboldened by a president who openly treats immigrants, refugees and Muslims as invaders, these attacks often stem from the presumption that Ilhan — like others who share those identities — is somehow illegitimate or not fully American,” he said.
Yeah that is the ticket. Shift the focus to President Donald Trump to get around questions that your client married her own brother to commit a crime.
“Ilhan has shared more than most public officials ever do about the details of her personal life — even when it is personally painful,” he said.
“Whether by colluding with right-wing outlets to go after Muslim elected officials or hounding family members, legitimate media outlets have a responsibility not to fan the flames of hate.
“Continuing to do so is not only demeaning to Ilhan, but to her entire family,” he said in a statement to The Star-Tribune.
That sounds nice, but it is kind of tough to accuse a Democrat leaning newspaper of colluding with right wing groups.
I recently interviewed survival expert Robert Griswold of Ready Made Resources. Robert Griswold and I discussed the high number of Africans coming into the United States from areas where the Ebola outbreaks are out of control. He and I agree one one point, these Africans did not come to the southern border on their own. They were clearly transported and that is the only explanation given the logistics. This means that part of the immigration invasion has been weaponized. An outbreak is in America’s future. A pandemic will be the result.
Robert Griswold, a strong Christian and I discussed how to prepare and how to adapt to a severe outbreak. Given the times that we are living in, this is a must-listen interview. Please share this with your contacts as Robert and myself are trying to save as many future lives as possible. Open the Video
It is one thing to have immigrants (legally) come to America and to have them welcomed with open arms. It is quite another to be importing cartel members and their terrorist allies into this country, wich is exactly what we are doing.
This article take a critical look at the importation of violent gangs into America through deriving meaning from the nature of the criminal gangs entering our Southern border with Mexico. During the Jade Helm 15-16 exercises, I was contacted by a high ranking Texas Ranger and he told me to focus on the gangs and terrorists coming into Texas. This source informed that Texas was losing control to prevent major attacks on Texas towns and cities. I have been in communication with a DEA source for 5 years, as well, and he informs me that the Plaza system, under the direction of the cartels is appearing in sanctuary cities inside the United States. I want to deliver a public allegation at this point. When judges and local politicians that we see in places in sanctuary cities, such as San Francisco, refuse to prosecute illegal immigrants for child sex trafficking and drug distribution, we can only assume that they are on the take.
When we see Mexican politicians on the take, as many/most are, we can only assume that we have people in these sanctuary cities that are also on the take. While serving as both the Alameda County District Attorney and the California State Attorney General, she oversaw the squelching of criminal indictments and media inquiries into these suspicious inquiries. Thanks to Alexandra Daley for uncovering these facts and reporting them on the CSS.
I recently wrote an article on how America is being actively and quickly transformed into a narco-terrorist state right before our eyes. This article will demonstrate what like will be like in America, first in our sanctuary cities, and later, as these behaviors and business models spread across the country. Soon, it will not be safe for many of you to walk out of your homes.
The criminal forces referred to in this article, are already here. They control such communities as Humboldt County, thanks to Marilyn Rupar for her fine work in this area. Chinatown is a hotbed of activity which is a marriage between the communist Chinese, the drug cartels and corrupt American politicians. I have written no less than 9 articles on these facts. Here is what America is transforming into. One side note, before continuing, My main DEA source told me about the emerging criminal empire in this country. He asked me to wait so his identity could be obscured from this revelation. He has now told me to publish and in future articles,
I will be discussing the nature of this new business model and the fact that we have more corrupt politicians who are part of this endeavor, than are not, especially in border states. The nature of this threat will be exposed in future articles, now that I have permission to proceed. For example, I have been asked to investigate 3 Phoenix area churches for allegedly sex trafficking during this immigration crisis. Stay tuned, but for now this is what your country is transforming into.
To Close to Home
The following is a crude representation of a major gun battle held on the American-Mexican border, just south of Arizona and in the town of Agua Prieta. In two separate gun battles, 9 Mexican cartel members were killed. They were allegedly fighting over local turf, for the right to control drug trafficking in the Plaza System. The Plaza system is akin to a small fiefdom which exists under the territorial Kingdom-type of control emanating from the cartels. At the sight of this major blood bath, in Sonora, the drug kingdom is clearly rooted under the control of the Sinaloa drug cartel. The Sinaloa drug cartel is the biggest of all the cartels which ships, drugs and child-sex-trafficking into the United States. In other words, both sides of this gun fight are members of the Sinaloa and they were just having a “friendly discussion about who is going to control drug trafficking through their small border town.
The following video should be taken as a warning to every America. Please note that in the midst of of the 1 minute and 9 second video, we see a man riding a bike in the midst of a gun battle which is just another day in the park on America’s southern border. Please note that at the 44 second mark, we see a school bus in the distance driving right through the kill zone. One child, a 12 year-old-boy named Omar “N” was wounded and taken to the hospital. An 82 year-old-woman, withdrawing cash from an ATM, was also wounded in another prolonged gun exchange in the same area only a few days before. Soon, this elderly woman will be your grandmother.
Can there be any question that the winner of the gun battle, gathered up the spoils of the drug war and within a few days, the product is delivered to the playgrounds, the parks and the back alleys of America for our kids to consume. Below is a map of present sanctuary cities. Corrupt politicians and organized crime run these cities. The identifiers on this map are spreading like a fast acting cancer.
Most of the people that illegally come to America are decent people who have been lied to about the fact that all but a bunch of white-supremacist Nazi-types want them in the country. I want them int the country as well, because we have a declining birth rate of 1.77. We need immigration, and most would contribute to our society. But they need to come into the country the right way. And we need to screen al immigrants for suitability. (eg cartel members, terrorists, etc). Unfortunately, the lessons of Agua Prieta, from two days ago, his is becoming a regular part of life on the border and soon will become a daily occurance inside of our country. especially in our self-declared sanctuary cities. The people pictured below with their accompanying sign threatening violence against law enforcement personnel in Arizona are not helping their cause. In fact, one could reasonably argue that with this type of rhetoric, Trump would indeed be justified in shutting down the border.
In conclusion, this photo tells America, especially those residing in border states, what is coming next. Stay tuned, this report only scratches the surface
2. Analyze HOW THE CIVIL WAR WILL PLAY OUT – I advocate peaceful separation; outside of that, civil war in America is certain
3. Explain the SOLUTION: – Separate forever from the Left – Separate nations, including a white supermajority nation (like a white version of Israel or Japan) – Leftism-proof and corruption-proof (parasite-proof) governance (Propertarianism) featuring no usury/debt-slavery, no third world immigration, no affirmative action In other words, the salvation of Western Civilization.
Please note: I do ANALYSIS and sometimes PREDICTIONS. These should not be confused with advocacy or recommendation of a particular action. I do not endorse violence; I call for peaceful separation of right and left in America.
I also sometimes speak of group statistical patterns, and powerful psychologies that many or most members of certain groups of people operate in. This should NOT be construed as hate. There are always exceptions to these patterns (usually many exceptions), and there are many wonderful and capable people of every race and ethnicity.
For the record, I come from immigrants. America needs immigrants to supplement its falling birth rate of 1.7, in which 2.1 is needed. However, desiring immigration does not mean advocating for the present invasion of our border and the threat that this poses to our country. Well-regulated immigration in which EACH immigrant is screened for terrorist and criminal activities is needed prior to admission. Further, Mexico should bear the housing and cost for all asylum seekers before they can be processed in the United States. It would be interesting to note how quickly these greatly inflated numbers would decline.
Mexican President Obrador is pretending to be dealing with the Trump administration in the middle of the threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican exports to America of 5% and increasing after that if Mexico continues to facilitate the entry of unsavory characters to the United States. What the mainstream media (MSM) will never tell the public is that a significant number of terrorists, criminals with felonies, drug dealers, child sex traffickers, gun runners, assassins and paramilitary as well as military troops are crossing our Southern border in great numbers right along with legitimate people who are seeking the relative safety that crossing the border offers some immigrants.
However, as we know and has been documented by the federal government, 90% of all asylum seeker claims are completely false. These people are distributed around the country while they await trial and the vast majority of them never show up of trial and future disposition. The whole illegal immigration system is the largest national security threat faced by the innocent people inside the United States. You and your neighbors have done nothing to deserve what is happening and what is going to happen. But many of you are going broke and some of you are going to go broke if because
The Deep State, their globalist benefactors, and the minions for these two groups, the Democratic Party, are reaping benefits through the facilitation of this process. Make no mistake about it, this is an attack upon America by forces which want to see America become vulnerable to a takeover.
Tariffs and the Border Wall
From where most of us sit, who intimately aware of the dynamics of our border situation, we already know that the border wall, once proposed to be 30 feet high has changed to a wall that would help to repel that a light infantry invasion which is what is coming next and it is something that the CSS has already reported on. Also, with the massive tunnel system built by the cartels and their terrorist allies (eg Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, etc.), the border wall is largely only a symbolic.
Also, as I have pointed out before, the tariffs don’t change behaviors of nation states just as sanctions don’t. The gesture is symbolic. The only people that ever suffer under these conditions are the people on the edge of poverty. Everyone else, with money, are able to navigate around the situation. Mexico is a narco-terrorist state and the bulk of their real income pales in comparison to their organized gangster activities opposed to the sanctions and tariffs that could be placed upon legitimate businesses.
MOST of the Mexican politicians are in bed with these criminals.. or they are dead or soon will be. Since the formation of the drug cartels, 500,000 people have been murdered in Mexico. This is what the Democrats are bringing into our country. And this does not even cover the military and paramilitary threat to our country.
Last week, I reported that every federal agency source that I speak with is privately calling for military intervention into Mexico. They immigration issue is a bigger threat than China and Russia. Mexico is responsible for the devastating economic attack upon our country that illegal immigration brings. They are also responsible for the crippling effects on our economy that illegal immigration leads to.
Many, most of the immigrants that come to America are wiring significant amounts of earned monies back home and are paying little to no tax. You, the American taxpayer get no benefit from their labors as you pay for their presence in your/my country.
Countries have gone to war for significantly less. The drug trafficking is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths each year brought about by the presence of many illegal immigrants and some of their criminal activities which have proven fatal to many in our society.
Further, as I have already pointed out, there is a significant terrorist and military threat being promulgated against you, your children and the country as whole. These are internationally agreed upon acts of war. In the conclusion of this article, I will deal with what an appropriate military course of action would consist of. From Bad to Worse, America
For several Mexican politicians, who are apparently on the payroll of the cartels and the terrorists, such as Senator Félix Salgado Macedonio, are actively calling for the invasion of several American states. This Senator is dumber than a box of rocks as some of the states he mentioned were not lost to Mexico in the 1846 war.
I took the liberty of pulling this Senator’s web page with regard to his Senatorial position, no doubt funded by narco-terrorist funds.

On Twitter, Macedonio stated, “Mexicans are in our territory. We are going to recover our territory that was stolen…. Viva AMLO, bastards (paying homage to the Mexican President)”…. Here is what he meant… An Insider Eyewitness Speaks Out
In addition to what Paul Preston revealed as to the brains behind the Calexit movement, WHICH IS TO EXTRICATE CALIFORNIA FROM THE UNION AND PLACE UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE UNITED NATIONS, he revealed that he has a man on the inside, let’s call him “Mike”, as Paul Preston calls him. “Mike” not only reported on the attendees of these Calexit meetings, this insider reports and CONFIRMED the former Obama administration has had three members in attendance and the administration of the Mexican government is involved because their consulate was in attendance as well as representatives of George Soros, is in support of this movement.
At the time I interviewed Paul, he was gravely concerned for the fate of the insider. At the time that this interview was conducted, “Mike” as Preston calls him. Revealed that plans were discussed to unleash the imported gangsters to perform acts of violence against public mass gatherings of white people as well as to target black gang members. Can you say Palestine comes to California? The entire goal is to force a United Nations intervention, in the interest of humanity under the Kigali Principles that Obama signed on to before leaving office in 2016. Brief History of Reconquista Atzlan
There is no legal mechanism in which a state can legally withdraw from the United States. I have written about this before as this plan to leave the United States is known in Mexico as the Reconquista Movement, referred to by Senator Macedonio, meaning to reconquer what was forfeited from Mexico following the Mexican American war of the 1846 to 1848 in which the United States purchased land from the defeated Mexico.
La Raza and its first cousin MECHA espouse Trotsky’s principles for overthrowing all 8 state governments involved the taking of what once was Mexican land. The Reconquista movement is so controversial (i.e. the announced intention to expel all Whites from an 8 state area), that the plan has temporarily been reduced and morphed into a plan called Calexit, which used to be referred to at one-time as “YES, CALIFORNIA!” The Reconquista Movement once looked like this on paper:
Stop and think about the implications of these interconnections. If we ever wondered how America could be attacked by Russian proxy forces, we have stumbled across the answer to that question. The planned insertions of Special Forces in the Midland and Odessa areas speak to the anticipated asymmetric warfare being anticipated in the early part of the conflict. Paul Martin has repeatedly told me over the past several months that Texans should be prepared to defend themselves because they are going to be overrun.
Additionally, this sets up another terrifying possibility. That possibility would be a “Red Dawn” type of assault upon the United States, in the second phase of this operation, by Russian allies in the region and this will be the topic of the next part of this series. Make no mistake about it, I am talking about preparing to stop the coming Red Dawn invasion. Senator Macedonio is a participant in this plot. Look, again, at this Senatorial committee assignments. He is at the center of it all.
I will provide more detail in a later article, but for now, suffice it to say that we need to send in the military to seal the border between Guatemala and Mexico, destroy all incoming tunnels to the United States. The US needs to blockade all Mexican coastlines and intercept all foot traffic crossing the border and force the downing of all planes coming into America. This is the only way to stop this growing invasion threat. Thanks to Steve Quayle for bringing this Senator to my attention.
The U.S. Defense Department said on Wednesday it had awarded a $646 million contract to a construction company to design and build a replacement for the border wall in Arizona.
In a statement, the Pentagon said the work by Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Southwest Valley Constructors was expected to be completed by Jan. 31, 2020. The work will be performed in the Tucson sector, which includes most of the Arizona border with Mexico. The Pentagon did not indicate the length of the wall to be built.
President Donald Trump has ordered the Pentagon to transfer funds to help build a border wall after he failed to secure funding from Congress.
Last week, the Pentagon said acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan had approved the transfer of $1.5 billion from the department to build more than 80 miles (130 km) of barriers on the border.
Immigration is a signature issue of Trump’s presidency and re-election campaign. He declared a national emergency in order to redirect funding to build a wall without the approval of Congress.
President Trump unveiled his immigration plan at the White House on May 16. His plan includes creating a merit based selection process. By The White House WASHINGTON
President Donald Trump’s new plan to overhaul the immigration system would require immigrants to learn English, create a new visa for highly skilled workers and revamp asylum laws in a push for more merit-based decisions on who is allowed to stay in the country.
Trump declared that the number of immigrants would neither increase nor decrease. He announced that his proposal would create a new “Build America Visa” for “extraordinarily talented individuals,” high-skilled professionals and top graduate students from American universities. Democrats immediately denounced the proposal.
“Our proposal is pro-American, pro-immigrant and pro-worker,” Trump said on Thursday in the White House Rose Garden. “It’s just common sense. It will help all of our people including millions of devoted immigrants to achieve the American dream.”
The Trump immigration proposal touts the “gold standard of border security” and represents an effort to rally Republicans, who are divided on key aspects of this issue. But despite stiff enforcement measures one crucial faction, the immigration hardliners who helped Trump get elected, is already wary about whether they want to remain in the inner circle if this is the starting point.
The plan led by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, is facing push back from immigration hardliners who are concerned that it does not actually cut immigration levels as had past proposals from the Trump administration.
The plan also authorizes Customs and Border Protection to raise customs fees and fines, which will be directed to a fund to support border security and trade. A new biometric entry/exit system would also be implemented and agencies will be directed to stop issuing visas to citizens of recalcitrant countries that will not accept back deported nationals, according to a written summary obtained by McClatchy.
“It seems to me that they are trying to pack in as much stuff that hawks will like, because they know that hawks are not happy that the numbers are slated to stay the same,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, who is in regular discussions with the administration.
It also includes a mandatory federal employment verification program, such as E-Verify.
“The President’s proposal will ensure that all employees are legally authorized to work,” according to the summary.
The plan has little to no chance of going anywhere with Democrats who are already describing it as “inhumane.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham , R-South Carolina, one of Trump’s closest allies in Congress, said any potential legislation has no chance of becoming law without Democratic support. And Trump’s plan, he said, doesn’t address the 11 million people here illegally, which is a priority for Democrats.
Asked if Trump is willing to work with Democrats, Graham said: “I talked to him this morning. I hope so. It might be so poisoned around here they don’t want to give him a win on anything. If they do want to work with him then he’s gotta show a willingness to work with them. He has in the past but we fell short.”
But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said the administration has yet to brief them on the plan and questioned the use of the word “merit” in the immigration plan.
“It is really a condescending word,” Pelosi said. “Are they saying families are without merit? Are they saying most of the people who come to the United States in the history of our country are without merit?”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York took to the Senate floor to criticize Trump for presenting a “political document” and not a serious plan, that he said fails to address those here illegally and the so-called Dreamers who were brought to the country illegally as children. He accused the White House of pressing “partisan, radical, anti-immigrant policies” that the administration has pushed since the beginning.
“That goes to the root of what is wrong with this administration’s approach to immigration,” Schumer said. “And if they think they can repeat what they failed to do in the past — if they try to repeat it saying ‘okay we’ll let Dreamers in, but you accept a whole lot of bad things,’ which is why immigration failed last time, last year. It ain’t happening. It ain’t happening.”
One of the most influential business groups, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has been careful in its response. Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley said Thursday that the Chamber appreciated the administration’s efforts, and looked forward to working with the White House, but emphasized that more issues needed to addressed, “including the creation of market-based temporary worker programs and responsibly addressing the unauthorized alien population in the U.S.”
The plan is open to modification, those familiar with the discussions say, as officials in the White House keep trying to gain more Republican support. The details shared with McClatchy show the administration is making an effort to get hardliners on board by including stronger enforcement measures such as “expediting barrier construction,” tightening asylum rules, tracking down those who overstay their visas, and revisions to legal agreements that prevent children from being detained for more than 20 days.
“My plan expedites relief for legitimate asylum seekers by screening out the merit-less claims,” Trump said. “If you have a proper claim, you will quickly be admitted. If you don’t you will be promptly returned home.”
The White House estimates that now only about 12 percent of people obtaining green cards and citizenship do so based on “employment and skill,” with the majority entering through family connections, humanitarian reasons and the diversity lottery. Under Trump’s proposal, the White House says nearly 60 percent would enter due to employment and skill.
Green card applicants would also, under the proposal, need to be financially self-sufficient, have knowledge about the U.S. government — and speak English.
“The President’s plan is designed to attract immigrants who love America, share our values and want to contribute to society,” the written summary states. “This is achieved by requiring green card applicants to pass a U.S. civics exam and demonstrate English proficiency.”
Immigration hardliners have long been wary of Kushner’s plans, fearing that his corporate ties would lead him to pursue a plan that runs counter to Trump’s “Hire American” priorities.
Late last year, Kushner helped kick off a fresh discussion on immigration that reflected a new paradigm in the White House. It appeared to be a shift away from the priorities of 2017, Trump’s first year in office, that sought to prevent the influx of foreign workers who could displace American workers in favor of a new approach preferred by more traditional Republicans, particularly those close to the corporate sector who are desperate to attract more foreign workers to fill U.S. factories and tech hubs.
Trump won the Republican nomination and the presidency in 2016 by campaigning on a promise to crack down on immigration, build a border wall and end an Obama-era program that offered the so-called Dreamers temporary, renewable work permits.
Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which supports reduction in immigration numbers, said the immigration system is in crisis and this could be the best plan offered for the next several decades – especially if Democrats later take control of the White House and Congress.
While the numbers need to be reduced, Stein said the proposal’s limits to asylum, cuts to extended family migration, and movement toward a merit system would reduce pressure to increase immigration numbers. He said it would also increase the income earning ability of the immigrants who are admitted.
“It needs a top to bottom, root and branch reform. It needs to be simplified and just like anything else, you have to turn the water off before you can fix the plumbing,” Stein said.
Quietly, it seems, President Donald Trump reversed the usurper Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s policies, which enabled illegal aliens to work far easier in America. The return of “no match” letters appear to be part of the administration’s Buy American, Hire American policies.
The Social Security Administration has revived an old practice of notifying employers of mismatches between information on tax forms and the agency’s records.
Starting in March, the SSA began sending employer correction request notices, also known as “no-match letters,” to employers with at least one employee whose name and Social Security number combination on a filed W-2 doesn’t match SSA records. The letters instruct employers to register for the agency’s Business Services Online and correct the mismatch within 60 days
Some 575,000 employers already have received letters.
The return of no-match letters, which haven’t been sent to employers for more than a decade, already is stirring controversy among advocacy groups and some Democratic lawmakers. The move is viewed as another Trump administration policy targeting immigrants, sparking concerns that companies could fire employees pre-emptively, fearing that they might lack work authorization.
While some like Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia (D-IL) refer to this as scare tactics, one has to question what the problem actually is? If Social Security numbers don’t match names, shouldn’t that be a red flag that not only do you have an illegal alien using it, but that a true American’s identity might have been stolen? Of course!
Of course, Democrats are protesting this!
The Hill reported on their efforts:
The no-match letters, Democrats argue, are being instituted as part of the Trump administration's crackdown on immigration as a measure of outing to employers undocumented immigrants working with false or stolen SSNs.
The agency has defended the practice of using the letters in the past, telling NPR in late March that it was focused on improving the accuracy of its record.
"If we cannot match the name and SSN reported on a W-2 to our records, we cannot credit earnings to a worker's record," spokesman Mark Hinkle said in a statement at the time. "When earnings are missing, the worker may not qualify for Social Security benefits he or she is due or the benefit amount may be incorrect."
At least 46 Democrats signed a letter that was sent to acting Social Security Administration Commissioner Nancy Berryhill earlier this month urging her to retract that orders she was given.
“This action will cause numerous problems by diverting resources away from frontline workers whose primary mission is administering benefits,” the Democrats wrote of the Employer Correction Request Notices. “Additionally, this rule can result in increased discrimination and abuses against U.S. workers, particularly women.”
Berry was also sent another letter signed by 146 labor and immigration organizations that claims that such letters are ineffective, endanger citizens and labor rights and could overwhelm the SSA’s resources.
“Other than to instill fear and to add to the series of attacks that have come down against the immigrant community — whether it’s the Census question, whether it’s the public charge initiative against lawful permanent residents — this is one more tool in their arsenal, I think, to drive the community into the shadows of society, to create more anti-immigrant sentiment in the country and just to create fear and instability in communities with large immigrant populations,” said Rep. Jesús García (D-Ill.), the lead signatory of the Democratic letter.
OK, look, I don’t care for the Social Security Administration anymore than I do the IRS, and I don’t doubt there will be some hangups concerning errant letters, but are these people seriously arguing against these measures when, again, not only could we be talking about illegal aliens but identity theft of Americans?
“You should not use this letter to take any adverse action against an employee, such as laying off, suspending, firing or discriminating against that individual, just because his or her SSN or name does not match our records,” according to a sample “no-match” letter
President Donald Trump is planning on using the Insurrection Act to remove illegal immigrants from the United States. It may ALSO be used to take under arrest, entire State Legislatures and City Councils, who have enacted “Sanctuary Laws” to directly interfere with federal immigration enforcement.
According to multiple senior administration officials, the president intends to invoke the “tremendous powers” of the act to remove illegal immigrants from the country.
“We’re doing the Insurrection Act,” one official said.
Under the Insurrection Act of 1807, the president has the authority to use the National Guard and military in order to combat “unlawful obstruction or rebellion” within U.S. borders. The act was last invoked in 1992 by George H.W. Bush to quell the Los Angeles riots, and was also used by Eisenhower in 1957 to enforce school desegregation in the south.
The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a United States federal law (10 U.S.C. §§ 251–255) (until 2016, found at 10 US Code, Chapter 15, §§ 331–335, renumbered to 10 USC, Chapter 13, §§ 251–255) that governs the ability of the President of the United States to deploy military troops within the United States to put down lawlessness, insurrection, and rebellion.
An official expressed concerns that Trump’s use of the act’s powers would face legal challenges, pointing to the lawsuits against the president’s travel ban from majority-Muslim countries. However, as the official noted, the travel ban ultimately prevailed in the Supreme Court.
In addition to the Insurrection Act, the president is also considering declaring the country full and insisting that the U.S. can no longer handle the massive influx of illegal immigrants.
“If you take a ship and it holds 1,000 people maximum — one more person and the ship is going to collapse,” the official explained. “The country is full.”
“Our hospitals are full, our detention centers are full,” they added.
ICE facilities were forced to release 100,000 illegal immigrants in the first three months of 2019 because of overcrowding in detention centers. (RELATED: Overwhelmed ICE Facilities Forced To Release Illegals)
Separately, the president unveiled a new immigration plan Thursday that focuses on border security and merit-based legal immigration. The plan, which was co-authored by top aides Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller, would increase the proportion of visas granted to highly-skilled immigrants and also establish a self-sustaining border security fund.
It is anticipated by some (not all) that the ENTIRE California state Senate, and an overwhelming majority of the California state Assembly may be taken under arrest for enacting state laws with the specific intent of thwarting federal immigration enforcement. Similarly, the State Legislatures of New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts could also find themselves in federal handcuffs for similar Sanctuary laws.
The New Jersey Attorney General may also find himself (and his turban) dressed in prison orange for enacting official policies that instruct local law enforcers they are forbidden to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement. “These laws, Ordinances and policies are overt Obstruction of federal law” said one White House source; “it’s time to put a stop to all of it” he continued.
At the city level, Cities like New York, Jersey City and Newark, NJ could see former and current elected officials carted off to jail for enacting local versions of Sanctuary laws or policies
Sen. Lindsey Graham reveals new immigration bill as Feds arrest dozens over alleged immigration scam
Scam offered fake marriages for $70K; Border Patrol Foundation president Ronald Colburn weighs in.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Wednesday unveiled a bill that would end asylum claims from Central America at the border and return unaccompanied minors to their home countries — a targeted effort to tackle the escalating migration crisis.
“This is a nightmare for smugglers,” Graham said. “This is a godsend to stop the humanitarian disaster.”
Graham’s bill is designed specifically to deal with loopholes he says are encouraging migrants from Central America to make the treacherous journey north and bring children with them. He pointed in particular to the 20-day limit for authorities to hold unaccompanied minors and families before having to release them into the U.S. homeland.
“The word is out on the street in Central America if you bring a minor child with you, your chance of being deported goes to almost zero, your hearing date is years away and we release you inside the country and that’s the goal of coming,” he said.
The bill would end asylum claims at the U.S. border for migrants from the Northern Triangle of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. Instead, those applications would be filed at refugee processing centers set up in the Northern Triangle and Mexico. The legislation would also allow unaccompanied minors to be returned to their country of origin, which Graham said would be treating them the same as minors from Canada and Mexico.
His bill would extend the time families can be held together from 20 days to 100 days to help allow claims to be filed without families being released into the U.S. It would also add an additional 500 immigration judges to deal with the backlog of asylum claims.
Until these loopholes are dealt with, Graham said, other border security measures and funding are pointless — including President Trump’s call for a wall on the southern border. TSA planning to deploy hundreds of volunteer staff to southern borderVideo
“No matter how high the wall will be built, how many drones you have, no matter how many agents you have in the border, they’ll keep coming because they want to get caught,” he said.
Graham told reporters he was prepared to work with Democrats on moving the bill in Congress.
“If we do these four things, then the incentives created by our laws will cease to exist, this humanitarian disaster will begin to repair itself and I am willing to sit down with Democrats and find a way to address the underlying problem in Central America,” he said. “I am willing to put other immigration ideas on the table to marry up with this but what I am not willing to do is ignore this problem any longer.”
Democrats initially appeared skeptical, with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., telling ABC News: “Any immigration proposal that is harsh on children seeking asylum and does not address the root causes that are forcing them to flee their home countries will fail to stem the flow of migrants and is a nonstarter.”
Graham’s proposal comes after Customs and Border Protection said it apprehended or turned away more than 109,000 migrants attempting to cross the border in April, the second month in a row the number has topped 100,000.
Fox News confirmed Wednesday that The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is planning to send hundreds of officials to the southern border to help the Department of Homeland Security with the crisis.
