ILLEGAL ALIENS GET PRIORITY BOARDING ON COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

 

Now illegal aliens are getting priority boarding on commercial flights?

As if commercial airline flights weren’t miserable enough, now we have Homeland Security officials escorting unscreened groups of illegals onto commercial airline flights, riding alongside paying passengers.  In another example of special treatment, the illegals board with all their luggage on a priority boarding basis, ahead of paying passengers.

It’s the return of catch-and-release, and it’s responsible for a nearly threefold surge of illegal crossers of the U.S.’s southern border in the past few months, according to Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch writes:

The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official, who added that the undocumented immigrants [sic] get priority boarding ahead of all other passengers, including law enforcement personnel.  “It is shameful and dangerous,” said a seasoned Homeland Security agent with direct knowledge of the secret operations.  Labor personnel from front-line Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agencies have complained about the cost and security risk of flying illegal alien minors to any destination of their choosing within the U.S., according to a longtime Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official present at the meetings.

Score another one for illegal immigrants being better treated by the law compared to ordinary Americans.

With this going on, what is the purpose of airline screening at all?  If someone with any background whatever (and a high number of criminals) can ride commercial without screening, why are millions of law-abiding Americans with no criminal background or terrorist ties forced to be screened?  Americans were asked to give up a lot in the wake of 9/11 due to the presence of terrorists.  The fact that illegals aren’t doing the same just underlines the uselessness of the rules.

There are also the health concerns.  Illegals by definition are unscreened for infectious and contagious diseases.  Forcing them and their unscreened luggage, which may have traveled through deserts, truck cargo holds, and other flea- and vermin-infested places, represents a health hazard all by itself.  But what’s really outrageous is that the American passengers – the elderly man in vulnerable health, the woman with small children – have no right to say “no” to sitting next to or near such passengers.  Already it’s known that in 2014, the Homeland Security agents attempted to dump illegal immigrants with known communicable diseases into the small city of Murietta, and the locals protested.  (They got dumped in San Diego instead, now the site of a severe hepatitis outbreak.)

Thirdly, there’s the business angle, which is that passengers who purchase their tickets last and arrive latest, usually get the highest prices and the worst seats.  Compare and contrast to illegals who pay nothing (despite having thousands to pay the human-smugglers who got them to the border) for these flights, get priority boarding, and make the air travel that much more miserable for ordinary paying Americans.

It’s not just bad for Americans; it’s bad for the illegals, too.  Imagine being reared in a tiny village in a small Central American country, paying a human-smuggler to the continent-wide country to el norte and, upon arriving in this vast foreign expanse, suddenly being transported on wings, thousands of miles above, to the city of your choice, watching it magically appear in the scope of a few hours.  Wouldn’t that make you think of the U.S. government as your all-powerful protector?  And wouldn’t that make you seek more services from that same benevolent patrón?  It’s not a good way to get these people started on their road to being Americans, if that is the aim.

It’s baffling.  Why aren’t these people placed on contracted buses at a minimum?  Why are commercial passengers, paying hundreds or thousands for their flights, being asked to pay?  Is there a reason President Trump or his surrogates can’t explain this to us?  Yes, we know they are probably doing this out of a fear of lawsuits on overcrowding from left-wing activist groups, but dumping the problems onto airline passengers and giving the law-breakers causing the problem the gold-star treatment isn’t the answer.

The media have done an outstanding job of creating a winsome stereotype of the nearly 700,000 beneficiaries of Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. 

To hear the media tell it, virtually all of these young people are in college — or already graduated from college. Those no longer pursuing their studies are serving nobly in the military, launching promising civilian careers, or otherwise earnestly chasing the American Dream.

Any recollections they may have of their home countries, we are told, are vague at best. Indeed, they’ve become so fully “Americanized,” they would be lost if they were returned to the now- foreign tongue and culture of their native lands.

This characterization of Dreamers may be accurate for many. But it is far wide of the mark for many DACA beneficiaries. It’s main goal is to generate sympathy and prod lawmakers to grant them legal amnesty.

But history shows that every grant of amnesty triggers even more illegal immigration. Before lawmakers make any final decision on the issue, they would do well to take a closer look at those who benefited from DACA.

ONE-THIRD OF 214 ARRESTED MS-13 GANGSTERS WERE ‘UNACCOMPANIED ALIEN CHILDREN’

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

 

One-Third of 214 Arrested MS-13 Gangsters Were ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’

Almost one-third of 214 U.S.-based MS-13 gang members arrested in an international sweep were invited into the United States by President Barack Obama’s “Unaccompanied Alien Children” policy.

The successful “Raging Bull’ sweep was announced by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Deputy Director Tom Homan in a joint press conference at ICE headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The operation is a “significant step towards dismantling and eradicating MS-13 in the United States and in El Salvador,” said  Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Rybicki, the second-ranking official at DOJ’s Criminal Division. El Salvador police also arrested 53 gang members in El Salvador.

Sixteen of the 214 arrestees in the United States are U.S. citizens. Five were legal immigrants.

Ninety-three of 214 arrestees are charged with federal or state criminal offenses and will face prison time in the United States, said Derek Benner, the deputy executive associate director of the Homeland Security Investigations division. 

The group of 214 include 193 illegal aliens, including 121 arrestees who will be deported but will not face criminal charges.

VIDEO – HOW DID MAXINE WATERS GET SO RICH? TUCKER CARLSON

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

 

VIDEO    MAXINE WATERS VS TUCKER CARLSON

Maxine Waters Said It’s ‘Racist’ for Tucker Carlson to Ask How She Got So Rich — He Responds

How did elected official Maxine Waters get so rich?

That’s what Fox News’ Tucker Carlson wants to know, though he’s not alleging she did anything wrong.

But the lawmaker said it was “racist” to even ask the question!

Rep. Waters represents one of the poorest districts in California, yet she lives in a $4.3 mansion “in one of the richest and whitest neighborhoods in L.A.,” Carlson said. And she doesn’t even live in her district.

Carlson goes over more curious facts about the woman whose salary is funded by taxpayers:

TRUMP GRINDS THE G20, THE BUREAUCRATIC UNDERGROUND AND CNN INTO HAMBURGER

Monday, July 10th, 2017

 

For those of you who enjoy the articles written by Clarice Feldman, her other articles can be found on this link    www.americanthinker.com/author/clarice_feldman/
 Thanks to Charlie Hendrix of Ohio for sharing this excellent article.  Nancy 

Trump Grinds the G20, the Bureaucratic Underground, and CNN into Hamburger

This was a week of startling contrasts. The President reasserted (against a decades-long leftist attack on it) the significant achievements of Western civilization and the need to vigorously defend it. His speech prefaced the G20 meeting in Hamburg, where leftists rioted, burned, and looted while the G20 leaders ponced about and wined and dined in style, apparently oblivious to the havoc which their open border policies and multiculturalist mindset had birthed. As Trump worked successfully on trade and defense issues in Europe, his administration was quietly plugging security leaks and maladministration in our own bureaucratic underground.

A. Poland

Western Europe has been blinded by ideological nonsense. On the one hand it has worked assiduously to separate religion and politics. On the other hand, it has welcomed in hordes of Islamists. In contrast, to quote Zoltan Balog, Hungary’s Minister for Human Resources “in the case of Islam it is religion that determines politics.”

Eastern Europe, in particular Poland, was the right place to defend Western culture and values. And Trump did so brilliantly to the great delight of the thousands who flocked to hear him.

NEARLY 30% OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT CHILDREN HAVE TIES TO MS-13 OR OTHER CRIMINAL GANGS

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

 

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Nearly 30% of illegal immigrant children at border have ties to MS-13 or other gangs

 – The Washington Times – Wednesday, June 21, 2017
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:

Mr. Albence singled out the Chicago area as one of the most prominent sanctuaries. “Chicago is a large one. We haven’t been able to get into the Cook County Jail for a long time,” he said……….We know who they are, we know they’re gang members, we know they’re criminals. But if the city, the county, doesn’t allow us to get into that jail then they’re released back into the community,” he said.

Nearly 30 percent of the illegal immigrant children the U.S. is currently holding in its secure dormitories have ties to criminal gangs, the government revealed Wednesday, suggesting the Obama-era surge of Central Americans has fed the country’s growing problem with MS-13 and other gangs.

Federal officials refused even to guess at the true scope of the problem, telling the Senate Judiciary Committee that they can give only small snapshots of what they see. But they said the devastation on communities across the country is clear: killings and chaos, particularly among other immigrants — both legal and illegal.

The Border Patrol identified 160 teens who were known or suspected gang members when they first showed up at the border, but whom the Obama administration said it had to admit under U.S. law.

OUR NARCISSIST PRESIDENT IS WINNING !

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

 

Forget What You Hear: Our Narcissist President Is Winning

I first became aware of Donald Trump in the late seventies.  I was not impressed.  In fact, I didn’t like him.  I thought he was a braggart and a man who went out of his way to disrespect women.  I wouldn’t have said so at the time, but he was clearly a narcissist.

Growing up in an Italian neighborhood in the Bronx, I have been around men like him all my life.  They’re going to do this; they’re going to do that.  They have this; they have that.  I took him to be a person so full of himself that his company would be unbearable.

I didn’t give him much hope of winning the presidency, either, but as election day neared, friends would ask what I thought a Trump presidency would look like.  Forced at that point to think about it, I would say that as a businessman, at least he would make quality appointments to the power positions in his administration – you can’t run a successful business without being able to delegate authority to a strong team of employees. 

As far as Trump’s narcissism, I’m not sure that hurts him as a president.  Sure, he could show better discretion with what he says – he does seem to have an almost Plaxico Burress-type dedication to shooting himself in the foot (see L’Affaire Comey).  Yet I think you need to have a certain amount of narcissism to be a successful president, although it doesn’t guarantee success. 

Just look at our second-most recent president, a solipsist so narcissistic he actually thought his mere presence would slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet.  Barry took narcissism to a new level, seemingly believing himself some kind of god, a belief fed by the nearly total hagiographic coverage he received from the Fourth Estate, our once nationally treasured free press, reduced to sycophantic (more like “sycofanatic”) exaltation of the “light bearer,” the man with the “crease.”

The difference between Barry’s narcissism and Trump’s is this: Trump is the guy who looks at the most beautiful girl at the party and says, “I can get her number.”  Barry would look at the same girl and say, “She wants me.”  Trump would then pursue the girl, and Barry would walk away, because obviously, she is not good enough for him, and besides, someone told him there’s a mirror in the next room.

IMMIGRATION, LEGAL AND ILLEGAL – TWO ARTICLES

Monday, April 24th, 2017

 

Two articles, the first on crimes committed by illegal immigrants in Texas  (thanks to John Pizzo for sharing) and the second by NC Listen on the growing world population and its impact on our country.   Nancy. 
“If illegal aliens can break our laws and get rewarded for it, if illegal aliens have more rights than the taxpayers that pay the billions of dollars to support illegal immigration, then there is no law and we become a de facto lawless nation without borders and without sovereignty.”  —Ron Ewart
Very few, if any, Americans know the full scope of crime committed by illegal aliens.  
In the State of Texas alone, as reported in the Texas Department of Public Safety: 
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:
According to DHS status indicators, over 217,000 criminal aliens have been booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011 and March 31, 2017. During their criminal careers, these criminal aliens were charged with more than 579,000 criminal offenses. Those arrests include 1,179 homicide charges; 68,900 assault charges; 16,854 burglary charges; 68,999 drug charges; 699 kidnapping charges; 40,818 theft charges; 45,104 obstructing police charges; 3,813 robbery charges; 6,190 sexual assault charges; and 8,693 weapons charges. Of the total criminal aliens arrested in that timeframe, over 144,000 or 66% were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest.”
“According to DPS criminal history records, those criminal charges have thus far resulted in over 260,000 convictions including 485 homicide convictions; 25,882 assault convictions; 8,239 burglary convictions; 34,077 drug convictions; 238 kidnapping convictions; 18,543 theft convictions; 22,179 obstructing police convictions; 1,939 robbery convictions; 2,812 sexual assault convictions; and 3,625 weapons convictions. Of the convictions associated with criminal alien arrests, over 173,000 or 66% are associated with aliens who were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest.”

TRUMP ADMIN CONSIDERS STEPS FOR ‘EXTREME VETTING’

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

 

 desperate times call for desperate measures    Nancy
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Trump Administration Considers Far-Reaching Steps for ‘Extreme Vetting’

Foreigners entering U.S. could be forced to hand over phones, answer questions on ideology; changes could apply to allies like France and Germany

Foreigners who want to visit the U.S., even for a short trip, could be forced to disclose contacts on their mobile phones, social-media passwords and financial records, and to answer probing questions about their ideology, according to Trump administration officials conducting a review of vetting procedures.

The administration also wants to subject more visa applicants to intense security reviews and have embassies spend more time interviewing each applicant. The changes could apply to people from all over the world, including allies like France and Germany.

The measures—whose full scope haven’t yet been publicly discussed—would together represent the “extreme vetting” President Donald Trump has promised. The changes would be sure to generate significant controversy, both at home, from civil libertarians and others who see the questions as overly intrusive, and abroad, with experts warning that other nations could impose similar requirements on Americans seeking visas.

“If there is any doubt about a person’s intentions coming to the United States, they should have to overcome—really and truly prove to our satisfaction—that they are coming for legitimate reasons,” said Gene Hamilton, senior counselor to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

M-13 GANGS’ CRIME WAVE

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

 

THE WASHINGTON TIMES

The curse of criminal illegal aliens

MS-13 gang members rape, murder and destroy lives

by Tammy Bruce   March 8, 2017

In November 2016, President-elect Donald Trump said this to CBS’ “60 Minutes”: “What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million, we are getting them out of our country, or we are going to incarcerate.” Everyone, especially liberals and feminists, should be grateful he’s acting on that promise.

The criminal illegal alien population is destroying lives across the country, especially those of young people in immigrant communities.

Under President Trump’s directive to remove criminal illegals from our streets, we are learning about the vast network of one of the world’s most deadly gangs — MS-13. Originally from El Salvador, it found a foothold in Southern California as refugees fleeing the bloody civil war during the 1980s.

Now, as Fox News reports, “With as many as 10,000 members in 46 states, [MS-13] has expanded beyond its initial and local roots and members have been convicted of crimes ranging from kidnapping and murder to drug smuggling and human trafficking.”

Sounds like a JV team.
