Quotes of the day

Rumors had swirled among anti-immigration activists near a U.S. Border Patrol station in Southern California that the agency would try again to bus in some of the immigrants who have flooded across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Instead, they got dueling anti- and pro-immigration rallies Friday.

The crowd of 200 outside the station in Murrieta waved signs and sometimes shouted at each other. One banner read: “Proud LEGAL American. It doesn’t work any other way.” Another countered: “Against illegal immigration? Great! Go back to Europe!”

***

Protesters chanted, “USA! USA!”

Counterprotesters chanted, “La raza unida jamas seran vencida,” which translates as “The (Latino) race united will never be defeated.”

Both sides waved American flags, but one demonstrator held a shredded U.S. flag, angering an adversary who yelled: “Absolute disgrace!”…

On Tuesday, the federal government began busing 140 migrants for processing in Murrieta every 72 hours, raising concerns about operational capacity, Long said. The initial federal plan called for 500 people, which was lowered to 300, but the city strongly opposed those plans.

“The concern we have is the sustainability of 140 every 72 hours,” Long said. “We don’t see this stopping any time soon.”

Dozens of pro-immigrant residents wearing Mexican soccer jerseys also showed up at the meeting on Wednesday, but mostly sat in silence. Many more waited outside, having arrived too late to be let into the auditorium, which quickly filled to capacity. They held up signs proclaiming, “We are not illegal, we are humans,” as they faced opposing signs that read, “Bus them to the White House.”

In California, where Latinos are now the state’s largest ethnic group and much of the anti-immigrant sentiment of the 1990s has mostly faded away, many residents here say they have been stunned by their neighbors’ reactions.

“We came here because they are attacking our people, people just like us,” said Ana Larios, 42, a Mexican immigrant who moved to Murrieta with her children from Los Angeles nearly a decade ago. “I never knew people felt this way until now. It’s shocking and embarrassing.”

***

“When the buses come, you are going to see Americans that are willing to throw themselves under the bus, that’s what you are going to see,” demostrator Greg Allison said ahead of the migrants’ arrival. “I don’t care if I lose a limb. Even if the buses get past me and I lose a limb, guess what? The rest of the country is going to take notice.”

Tim Donnelly said he was there in opposition. He’s concerned the undocumented children will be released to coyotes and drug traffickers, with American authorities making the process easier.

“I have a huge concern over whether our government is being made complicit in completing the trafficking circle. We could have sworn law enforcement actually completing the work of the cartels and coyotes by handing children over to a trafficker,” Donnelly told NBC 7.

“I believe our government is being used and everyone is overwhelmed,” he added.

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article…

The Central American parents of the 50,000 youths and children are using a 2008 law to ensure their children are transported to them for free by a relay of border patrol and Department of Health and Human Services officials. The youths are delivered to the border patrol by smugglers, dubbed coyotes, in exchange for several thousand dollars.

Half of the 50,000 Central American youths were delivered by taxpayer-funded employees directly to their parents now living in the United States, and another third were delivered to people who said they were close relatives, said the July 3 article…

Top immigration officials choose to not check if the relatives or parents who pick up the children are in the country legally.

***

Immigrant-rights activists have set up water stations, gone out nearly daily to find border crossers in distress, and circulated warning posters and maps of the locations of those who have died in the desert…

Now Robin Hoover, founder and former member of the local group Humane Borders, is planning to distribute 100 high-intensity flashlights.

Hoover will work today with a local church in Altar, Sonora, 115 miles southwest of Tucson and one of the last staging areas for would-be border crossers, to pass out the $8.32 flashlights that can illuminate a tree a half-mile away and include both a strobe and an S.O.S. function.

“I hope that this simple device will help save lives,” he said Thursday during a news conference at El Tiradito Shrine in downtown Tucson, as he held the small black flashlight under a plastic water bottle to show how it created a prismatic effect.

There is nothing more un-American than showing not even one shred of sympathy, compassion, or even decency towards a group of desperate young children who showed up on our doorstep after having spent weeks on a treacherous journey. There is nothing more un-American than deliberately frightening an already traumatized group of kids, some still in diapers. There is nothing more un-American than a mob taking the law into their own hands and preventing authorities from doing the work of processing these refugees. What we saw was not patriotism — it was ugly, divisive, and yet another low for a debate that I thought could not get much lower.

But I reserved my greatest scorn for the Mayor of Murrieta, Alan Long. It was he who incited his constituents to protest and let law enforcement look the other way. It was he who recklessly demagogued the issue to spare himself a political problem and is now crying crocodile tears about the “black eye” media coverage he has given his town. He took an epic, immensely complicated humanitarian situation that involves broken policymaking both in Central America and in the U.S. and pointed the finger of blame at a bus full of little kids and babies.

What is so craven about Long’s “blame-the-victim” strategy is that he and the anti-immigrant extremists he unleashed not only blocked a couple of buses, they continue to block every single attempt at a humane and effective solution by reasonable policymakers on both sides of the aisle. Egged on by shameless demagogues like Long at the local level and lawmakers like Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) at the national level, the small but loud anti-immigrant movement like the one on display in Murrieta is the single biggest reason we do not yet have comprehensive immigration reform.

Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and set the most expansive legal course permissible to beef up border security, slow deportations of noncriminal aliens, and provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself…

Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012.

That executive action essentially lifted the threat of prosecution and deportation for about 670,000 undocumented residents—those older than 15 and younger than 31 who had been brought to America before their 16th birthday.

Obama has now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10.

***

Democratic campaign operatives have been busy adapting their modern get-out-the-vote technologies and field operations to replicate their 2012 success and boost turnout among unlikely voters in 2014. Issenberg sums up the challenge: “While Latinos’ total presidential votes tripled from 1988 to 2012, their midterm participation has declined by about seven points.” That may be changing, and Democrats toiling in the House campaign trenches may now have the infrastructure necessary to really turn out the midterm vote

In other words, the House Democratic campaign strategy and the Senate Democratic campaign strategy may run along separate tracks, one driving immigration, the other pushing the economy. One strategy could work while the other flops. That creates the possibility, however unlikely, for something completely unprecedented: a midterm election where Democrats and Republicans trade control of each congressional branch.

I’ve always had trouble pulling up the right words and it’s got worse since I got older.

The DACA Renewal Process: Everything You Need to Know
June 5 2014
***********

Today, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the renewal process for hundreds of thousands of young noncitizens who received a grant of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Renewal of DACA ensures current DACA holders will continue to be safe from deportation for another two year period. In addition, they will continue to have work authorization and to be eligible to receive a social security number, and, in nearly every state, a driver’s license.

The renewal announcement comes not a moment too soon. Because DACA recipients are encouraged to request renewal between four to five months ahead of their expiration date to avoid a lapse, the earliest major wave of DACA recipients – who received their DACA grants in September and October of 2012 – will need to act right away. Although DACA recipients who seek to renew must complete multiple applications and submit to a background check, most will be pleased to discover that the renewal process is relatively straightforward and that most DACA recipients should qualify for renewal.

USCIS has made clear that individuals who initially qualified for DACA will be eligible to renew unless they engaged in certain criminal activity, departed the country without the government’s permission, or stopped residing in the United States. No one with DACA will be too old to renew – indeed, as previously explained, it is impossible to age-out of the DACA program. Moreover, individuals enrolled in school at the time of their initial application will not be disqualified if they had to stop attending to see to other life responsibilities.

To request renewal, DACA recipients will have to file an updated and slightly shorter version of the DACA application as well as two applications related to work authorization, pay a filing fee of $465 (unless exempt), and submit to a background check. Despite the paperwork, DACA recipients will find the renewal process easier than the initial application process when it comes to supporting evidence. Where initial requestors were required to produce a substantial amount of evidence demonstrating, among other things, their residence in the United States since June of 2007, many renewal requestors will not need to include any supporting documentation at all. Only those renewal requestors who received DACA from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), rather than USCIS, and those with new documents involving removal proceedings or criminal history that were not previously submitted, will be required to submit evidence along with their application.

Timing will be key for renewal requestors who don’t want their DACA to lapse. A lapse in DACA could result in a loss of work authorization and a driver’s license. To avoid these and other severe consequences, DACA recipients are encouraged to apply for renewal roughly four months before their expiration dates. This should give USCIS ample time to adjudicate the renewal request. And, according to USCIS, those who responsibly file far enough in advance of their expiration date may be given an automatic extension in the event of a processing delay.

Despite the excitement around renewal, the 1.15 million potential DACA applicants who have not yet filed an initial application should not mistakenly conclude that the application period has ended. Indeed, the agency continues to accept roughly 10,000 new applications each month. Moreover, neither the administration nor USCIS has ever indicated that DACA would sunset, though some members of Congress have attempted to defund the program. Initial registration remains open.

With the unveiling of the details surrounding the renewal process, there is cause to simultaneously celebrate the program’s longevity and gnash our teeth in frustration over Congress’s failure to create a permanent solution for these young people and for the country. Unless and until Congress passes immigration reform, the best option on the table for many young aspiring Americans may be DACA. But, as President Obama said when he announced the DACA program, “these kids deserve to plan their lives in more than two-year increments.”

U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials say they agree with a Nevada sheriff’s position that rancher Cliven Bundy must be held accountable for his role in an April standoff between his supporters and the federal agency.

Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie said Bundy crossed the line when he allowed states’ rights supporters, including self-proclaimed militia members, onto his property to aim guns at police.

“If you step over that line, there are consequences to those actions,” Gillespie told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “And I believe they stepped over that line. No doubt about it. They need to be held accountable for it.”

Ordinary Internet users, American and non-American alike, far outnumber legally targeted foreigners in the communications intercepted by the National Security Agency from U.S. digital networks, according to a four-month investigation by The Washington Post.

Nine of 10 account holders found in a large cache of intercepted conversations, which former NSA contractor Edward Snowden provided in full to The Post, were not the intended surveillance targets but were caught in a net the agency had cast for somebody else.

A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained.

Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company’s paint colors, “Clinton Brown,” “Tucker Chocolate,” and “Confederate Red.”

Tucker worked on a project to create a new line of paint colors. One of the shades was given the name “Tucker Chocolate.”

The company already had a color named “Clinton Brown.” A co-worker pointed out the names of the two paint colors, which together contained Tucker’s first and last name, and thought it was funny, according to the lawsuit.

Tucker, who identifies himself in the suit as homosexual,

On its website, Benjamin Moore describes “Tucker Chocolate” as “capturing the 1798 color requested by St. George Tucker for his home facing Courthouse Green, this deep brown is classic and understated.”

There are a bunch of goals and we know most of them. Get msm stories off of Benghazi, dogs eating homework, low numbers for the regime,trading gitmo terror types for a traitor and so much more.
My question is why isn’t everyone calling this what it is? Just another op by the regime!
We know that govt. periodicals advertised for companies in Jan. and Feb. that could transport and care for 65k youngsters from Central America.
That gives us who, what, where, and when the regime began all this!
They own it! They deserve it and they should be taking full responsibility for what chaos it produces not getting away with calling it a humanitarian crisis! It’s anything but!! Its a well thought out contrived Axelrod op to further destroy the US by our regime now in power.
We need to tell it like it is!!

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 12:13 PM

We’re both on Yahoo. I have no idea how to tell. I hit reply and then I tried starting a new message. I’ll keep working on it. I don’t use it much. Let me know if you get anything. People are going to think we have something secretive going on. It’s just that I need to get this working.

they have thousands of huge bunnies there..
they look over the fender of the car at ya when you drive by…
and the coyotes just wait next to the road for you to hit one…
fresh road kill and they didn’t have to chase it down..

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:15 PM

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 6:09 PM

I think Wy still has snow in the higher elevations..
so I think the melt is still on…
least the heavy spring rains seem to have left..

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:19 PM

still full of silt

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 6:21 PM

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:15 PM

Ran a few over myself—-fed the coyotes…

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 6:22 PM

not so good for fishing yet..

do they have good fishing by your buddy’s house?

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:23 PM

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 6:22 PM

I wacked a huge one too…
and pulled over to see the damage… nothing
and I could see the coyote.. run up.. grab the formerly cute bunny remains and trot back to the bushes..

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:29 PM

It wasn’t very long ago it snowed in Wyoming. A few years ago there was a white squirrel in the trailer park. It was quite a celebrity. I took a picture of it. Lots of people came here to photo it until it disappeared. I expect someone shot it. The DNA shows up every so often. I remember seeing one up the road a few years before. The squirrels are all brown here.

I’ve sen bunnies but not many. Too many cats. Lot of chipmunks.

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:23 PM

Yeah, they do. My buddy is a fifty eight year old widowed girl, she was my best friend from junior high’s little sis. He was murdered by a crack-head in 1990 for 2000 dollars…

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 6:33 PM

crankyoldlady on July 6, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Can you email a pic of him to me? All of our squirrels in San Diego were gray…

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 6:34 PM

going2mars on July 6, 2014 at 6:29 PM

I didn’t get any damage either. Nailed two of them on one trip…
