Quotes of the day

President Obama and his aides have repeatedly sought to dispel the rumors driving thousands of children and teens from Central America to cross the U.S. border each month with the expectation they will be given a permiso and allowed to stay.

But under the Obama administration, those reports have proved increasingly true.

The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away at ports of entry fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 1,669 last year, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data released under a Freedom of Information Act request…

The previously unavailable deportation data are likely to fuel the political debate over whether Obama administration policies are partly responsible for the 52,000 children and teens who have surrendered to or been caught by Border Patrol agents since last October, spurring fresh concerns about U.S. border security and immigration law.

***

A border patrol agent was diagnosed with scabies after processing undocumented immigrants in Otay Mesa, California, the agent’s union representative said. Ronald Zermeno, health and safety director for the National Border Control Council union, said the agent told him that he observed several people with open sores while screening them in preparation to be released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin and lays eggs, causing an intense itching and rash, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In a letter to the chief patrol agent of San Diego’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Zermeno said border patrol agents processing the undocumented immigrants were told that those arriving in California had been pre-screened for health conditions. Agents in California, however, were not advised to decontaminate themselves or their uniforms, he added. “This demonstrates that we are not properly trained to identify infectious disease and to properly respond when we suspect a disease,” Zermeno said. Agents are “encouraged to use personal protective gear including latex or non-latex gloves, long-sleeve shirts, and to take precaution, including frequent hand washing,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said in a statement without commenting on the specific case.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) told Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer Sunday morning that he’d had enough of congressional Republicans criticizing the Obama administration over immigration policies when they’d refused to take up the bipartisan immigration reform bill passed by the Senate last year.

“I am really getting fed up with some of the critics of this administration, particularly from House Republicans,” Durbin said. “They had the opportunity for one solid year to call the immigration reform bill, and yet they refused to. Now they’re arguing we need more enforcement at the borders and a lot of other things? When are they going to accept their responsibility to govern?

A top United States general in charge of protecting the southern border says he’s been unable to combat the steady flow of illegal drugs, weapons and people from Central America, and is looking to Congress for urgent help.

Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, has asked Congress this year for more money, drones and ships for his mission – a request unlikely to be met. Since October, an influx of nearly 100,000 migrants has made the dangerous journey north from Latin America to the United States border. Most are children, and three-quarters of the unaccompanied minors have traveled thousands of miles from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

“In comparison to other global threats, the near collapse of societies in the hemisphere with the associated drug and [undocumented immigrant] flow are frequently viewed to be of low importance,” Kelly told Defense One. “Many argue these threats are not existential and do not challenge our national security. I disagree.”

***

Democrats, always on the lookout for an opportunity to swell the dependency rolls, turn a blind eye to this invasion; their main interest is in normalizing the status of illegals as quickly as possible. Republicans, apparently determined to live up to the caricature of being unable to tell one brown Spanish-speaking person from another, are in a panic that they will lose the Hispanic vote unless they turn a blind eye to what is not only systematic lawlessness but an all-out assault on the sovereignty of the country. Little wonder, then, that federal plans to relocate illegals have been met with vigorous and sometimes rowdy protests by locals.

There is perhaps no one who appreciates the meaning of a border better than an illegal immigrant. The line that divides the United States from what is south of it is the most significant demarcation in their lives. And while it is no argument for failing to enforce the law, one cannot blame those who are willing to risk and endure so much to escape life in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, etc. But we can blame those who fail to enforce the law. We can blame the Obama administration and corrupt law-enforcement officials for actively subverting the law. And we can certainly blame businessmen who encourage chaos, violence, and human trafficking in the service of their own narrow and slightly pathetic interests: Surely, busboys and dishwashers are not so scarce in South Carolina that one must effectively get into bed with the cartels in order to get the tables cleared.

Unhappily, the combination of interests linked to immigration lawlessness — the progressives’ dependency agenda and the Chamber of Commerce’s self-interest — make this a very difficult battle to win. On the matter of illegal immigration, as on so many similar issues, we are effectively governed by criminals.

Asked the host, “Is the priority that we have to do right by these children or do we have to find a way to clamp down on the border?”

“Well, there’s the issue,” said Johnson. “We have to do right by the children. I have personally encountered enough of them to know that we have to do right by the children.”

Yes we are governed by criminals and one of their crimes is breaking our immigration laws. If doing right by Elian Gonzalez was returning him to poor Cuba, then doing right by these “children” (and all their mamas who want a better life at our expense, and yes increased dependency is a danger for this nation)is to return them home immediately.

There are many crime ridden places on earth and it is the duty of these people, the baby daddies of all these kiddies, to do the right thing and stand up for improved conditions at home.

This is the fault of ALL amnesty supporters, republican and democrat, going back many years, it is the culmination of their efforts and goals. they are all for rewarding illegal behavior, the invasion of our country and our complete loss of sovereignty. they prefer foreign invaders to American citizens.

if the rewards are not removed it wont stop, they all play lip service to doing something but almost none will be willing to do what is required to stop this invasion, which is no legalization of any sort for the illegals, every effort to remove them from our country and severe fines and imprisonment for employers of illegals as a start and the actions we must demand from any politician wanting a vote.

instead of enforcement of the law, punishing illegal behavior and protecting our nation and citizens, they call out federal agents to attack American citizens to protect criminal foreign invaders.

this is the fault OF EVERY amnesty supporter and amnesty is anything other than demanding illegals leave our country.

Anthony • 13 hours ago
Here is why any person with both eyes and ears saw this coming. I used this post before this information became new to the case, and it still stands relevant:
IRS uses a RAID 7 hard drive setup, what that means is that each of the computers of the 7 people being investigated including Lerner. So what a RAID 7 hard drive setup does/is a hard drive stack system meaning the data is recorded to all 7 hard drives, the reason for this is because if one fails, then that information is preserved on 6 other drives. The statistical probability of 7 hard drives all failing is 1 out of billions. The statistical probability of 42 hard drives all failing for only the people being investigated, and nobody else. Is impossible, it has never happened under any dyno test of a RAID setup. There is no probability for such an event because it is that impossible to happen. This lawyer defending Lerner is not very smart, and apparently knows nothing about IT. Plus only the Executive can order the IRS to conduct such actions, via orders from Koskinen.
EDIT: Come on liberals challenge this information and prove me wrong, your not scared are you?

dmacleo Anthony • 12 hours ago
clients don’t use raid, these are normal business desktops. I cannot remember if they are dell or HP.
they are not thin clients either.
also there is no raid 7, there are 7 levels of raid though.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R
there is a trademarked TERM called raid 7 used by 1 single company that is very expensive and, for all intents, basically unsupported as its 1 company that uses it.
however the servers use raid and SAN, and the servers are where the email is.
I find it odd the house has not brought in any f the server admins to see whats going on.
edit: added link to raid levels

Anthony dmacleo • an hour ago
The RAID 7 can easily fit in a personal private computer in a IRS heads office, are you “Stupid”? And yes there is RAID 7 PC’s what do you think the 7 hard drives each linked via a cable are not capable in a HT-PC? One drive connecting to the next, any and all modern HT-PC’s are capable of holding at least a RAID 4-5 setup what do you think the 7 stands for genius? and if you have to wikipedia anything then enough said loser. RAID is a hard drive set up array, and if you are too uneducated to know that, then sorry! I have RAID 3 in my PC it is just for gaming, each of the hard drives is a SATA 7200RPM SEAGATE 1TB and I doubt seagate is the only hard drive company that supports RAID setup LOL liberal IT-TARD.
EDIT you are uneducated in anything IT if you think only a server supports RAID, derp that is literally what your whole argument amounted to. Derp derp derp!

dmacleo Anthony • in a few seconds
I never said only server supports raid, I said their client pcs don’t have them. in all the documents I have found there is no mention of raid, only that they were SFF styles.
you type all that and call me stupid?
7 hard drives connected to each other by a cable is scsi/iscsi, nothing to do with raid. They can be members of an array or JBOD or a mix of both.
I link the wiki because I thought was simple enough for you to understand, I was wrong.
and raid 3 is stupid, anyone that brags about running something that won’t service multiple reqs at the same time is talking out their a$$.
I’m running multiple raid 5 on 2 servers here and 1+0 on external webservers.
raid 3, jesus. I bet you got 3 drives set up in windows disc controller as one dynamic drive creating a software based raid5 and think thats raid 3.
the number of drives has nothing to do with the raid level number.
try again, educate yourself before you reply.

Most are children, and three-quarters of the unaccompanied minors have traveled thousands of miles from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

80% are male and the majority are age 14 – 18 … too old to educate and just the right age for gangs.

Yes, by all means, “do right by the children”. Reunite them with their families… and send them ALL back to their nation of origin.

It’s time for this administration, from Obama down, to ‘do right’ by American citizens and the constitution.

Enforce existing federal immigration law. Secure the border and deport those who have willfully shattered federal immigration law.

End the flow of those across our border who shamelessly seek to use any means available to them, even their children, as means to access the wallets of American tax payers and to circumvent the legitimate federal immigration system.

IF Obama can protect the White House from illegal intruders he can protect the nation from illegal intruders the same way and by the same means.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) is a memorandum authored by the Obama administration on June 15, 2012. It was implemented by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. It directs U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to practice prosecutorial discretion towards some individuals who immigrated to the United States as children and are currently undocumented.

A grant of deferred removal action does not confer lawful immigration status, alter an individual’s existing immigration status, or provide a path to citizenship.

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.”

8 weight on July 6, 2014 at 8:29 PM

If an illegal alien has a child on American soil, the Constitution does not require the child be granted American citizenship. Congress can give citizenship to anyone it wants, but the Fourteenth Amendment only commands citizenship to persons born on U.S. soil to parents who are not citizens of a foreign country.

Part of the chaos on America’s southern border is driven by illegal aliens seeking to have “anchor babies.” Under the current Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), if an illegal alien has a baby on U.S. soil, that baby is an American citizen.

Since all citizens have a right to be here, the illegal adult then cites the need to keep families together as justifying the parents’ staying in the U.S. for the rest of their lives, and “family reunification” is cited as grounds for bringing the rest of the family to the United States.

However, Congress could change that law any time, because it goes far beyond what the Constitution commands. Section One of the Fourteenth Amendment begins, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

While many erroneously claim that the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees citizenship to anyone born on American soil, the reality is that is not the law and has never been the law. Current immigration law—found at 8 U.S.C. § 1401(a)—specifies that a baby born on American soil to (1) a foreign ambassador, (2) head of state, or (3) foreign military prisoner is not an American citizen.

Gates, fences, stringent security, and armed officers responding to any breach… and this was the response to an American citizen, a woman, a mother with her daughter in the car, who was having a panic attack.

Yet, Obama insists it’s impossible to secure our borders.

Sooner or later the “3AM Commandos” will be all he has left.

And they will be less useful than our current border security.

y. I just had some problems with my Spanish-speaking neighbors across the street. Had to call the police. All 20 of them were going to sign statements that I came across the street and threatened them with a knife. Judge_Dredd on July 6, 2014 at 8:33 PM

Scott Johnson of Powerline doesn’t hold back in his Faithless Execution post:

…Neil Munro reports in the Daily Caller that the administration is delivering 290,000 illegals in the current invasion to homes in the United States. Munro links to New York Times articles here and here.

Obama’s behavior in the current criss lends support to the most fevered interpretations of Obama’s aims and motives. We are under invasion. A reasonable man might conclude that Obama supports it.

NEVER call the cops.

The police have the same problem islam has. Sure, there are a lot of “good ones”. That DO NOT rat out the bad ones. Their silence and inaction makes them just as evil as the bad ones.

If doing right by Elian Gonzalez was returning him to poor Cuba, then doing right by these “children” (and all their mamas who want a better life at our expense, and yes increased dependency is a danger for this nation)is to return them home immediately.

I see a lot of other people on Twitter having the same problem. All in the last few days from the most recent update. I am tweeting all of them. The situation is getting desperate. I just tweeted a religious Muslim with Koran quotes on their page with lots of Arabic because they were having the same problem. I mean, I’m sure he’s a terrific person, but you know.

Very well said Jackie. Obastard swore an oath to defend our country, to uphold the Constitution and our laws.
We have had immigration laws in place for 150 years +, we have made many other generations abide by those laws, time to do it again. If this pResident won’t follow and enforce our laws he needs to by removed for malfeasance of his duty.

Bakokitty on July 6, 2014 at 8:44 PM

I really do not care if they are kids, the elderly or the extended spawn of Father Junipero Serra himself…they are illegal aliens; they are illegally crossing our sovereign border; they have absolutely zero rights in this nation, and they deserve absolutely nothing but a drop kick in their lawless ass right back over the border from where they came.

I am sick and tired of the bleeding hearts amongst us who pull the harp strings and bleat about the poor, sick, huddled masses yearning to be free. We have enough leeches sucking at the government teat..they are called liberals.

Send ‘em all packing with a Muslim under each arm.

The Obama administration, and all of it’s alphabet soup agencies including DHS, BLM, IRS, NSA, ATF and yes, even the DOD, are at war with America. At the point only the Three Monkeys of Oblivion could possibly miss that obvious fact.

The deputy asked me if I threatened them with a knife. I said if I was ever dumb enough to threaten anyone in that fashion it wouldn’t be with a knife. But no, he didn’t laugh.
