Baltimore Sun – Governor “New Americans” Martin O’Malley of Maryland Sets Terrible Precedent on Illegal Alien Detainers – O’Malley tightens rules on federal immigration requests

Gov. Martin O’Malley has imposed strict new rules to limit when the state may hold immigrants in Baltimore’s jail at the request of federal authorities, dealing a new blow to a national program intended to catch people who are in the country illegally.
The governor’s policy, which was made public Friday by immigration advocates, comes in response to a recent opinion from the Maryland attorney general’s office, which found that detaining immigrants in local jails beyond their scheduled release without probable cause is likely a violation of the Fourth Amendment.
Probable cause — the legal standard police use to obtain a warrant — is far more stringent than the standard that federal officials have used to request the state to hold immigrants.

The attorney general’s opinion, along with the precedent set by O’Malley, significantly undercuts a federal program known as Secure Communities that was intended to focus deportation efforts on immigrants who broke laws after they entered the country. A Baltimore Sun analysis this year found that more than 40 percent of the immigrants deported in the state under the program had no prior criminal record — far higher than the national average.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland, which has been advocating on the issue for years, praised O’Malley’s decision to limit when the state would honor the federal requests known as detainers.

The governor’s decision applies only to the state-run jail in Baltimore, but immigration groups said the attorney general’s opinion should prompt local jurisdictions to adopt similar policies.

“We applaud this news from the governor recognizing the fundamental constitutional rights of all Marylanders,” said Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA de Maryland, the state’s most prominent advocacy group for immigrants. “Under Governor O’Malley’s leadership, Maryland has knit together a community and we look forward to counties across the state following suit.”

Jim Simpson, Examiner – UPDATED: Judicial Watch reports an imminent terrorist attack warning on border

UPDATED: Judicial Watch reports an imminent terrorist attack warning on border

simpson

UPDATE: Judicial Watch reiterated its warning this evening in an email sent out to subscribers (the subscription is free). Earlier today, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson denied that there was any imminent threat warning. In a phone conversation with the UK Mail, a DHS spokesman also denied there was any credible evidence of ISIS in Mexico. The White House also denied the reports. But in an interview with the Mail today, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called the administration’s assertions “so dishonest,” saying that his sources were “golden.”

Original Article

Judicial Watch, perhaps the most effective government watchdog, today reported federal law enforcement sources saying an attack along our southern border may be imminent. These sources claim that ISIS and al Qaeda personnel are present in Ciudad Juarez, a city on the Mexican border directly opposite El Paso, Texas. A warning bulletin has been issued to to DHS, FBI, Defense agencies and others warning that these groups intend to carry out these attacks using vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).

The bulletin was apparently posted on Thursday by the Texas Department of Public Safety,according to Fox News. Fox reports that thousands of tweets and Facebook posts were circulated from monitored terrorist sites repeating a call for ISIS cross-border attacks. Some even cited James O’Keefe’s recent successful effort to cross the border dressed as Osama bin Laden to show how easy it was, Fox says.

Fox News – Crisis in the Classroom: Surge of illegal immigrant kids poses challenge for schools

Crisis in the Classroom: Surge of illegal immigrant kids poses challenge for schools

 

What was a crisis on America’s southern border is now turning into a major challenge for school administrators across the country.

Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors have crossed into the U.S. in recent months, and those not being held in health department-run facilities have in many cases been sent to live with sponsors, who are typically extended family members. As the new school year begins, the children, who in many cases don’t speak English and have limited reading skills, are showing up for class.

This has raised questions in local districts about the strain it could put on teachers.

“They may have only gone to 2nd or 3rd grade, have limited literacy in their first language. That does create a different kind of teaching impact on a school than our traditional immigrant families,” Anne Arundel County, Md., administrator Kelly Reider told Fox affiliate WBFF.

Other officials, including the mayor of Lynn, Mass., have traveled to Washington seeking answers from the Obama administration.

“I love the fact that Lynn is a diverse community,” Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy said. “By speaking out about this, I have been called a racist, I have been called a hater. That is not the case. I’m simply looking at this from the point of view of the economic impact it has had on my city.”

Her community in Essex County has recently taken in 204 of the unaccompanied children, many of whom presumably would be entering school.

New York’s Nassau County, on Long Island, has taken in 1,096 of these children.

And the Houston-area Harris County in Texas has received 2,866, according to numbers provided by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has complained that Obama Cabinet members promised to keep state officials in the loop, yet he says Louisiana received no warning of the influx.

“In my state, the Obama administration sent over a thousand children without telling us, without telling social services, without telling the schools,” Jindal said on “The Laura Ingraham Show.”

Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill claim the administration has gotten lax when it comes to even verifying the backgrounds of young illegal immigrants trying to stay.

“I really think that 95 percent of these illegal minors are in the country to stay. The administration is not serious about sending them back home to their families they left behind,” Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith told Fox News. “They’re going to be enrolled in our schools, that’s for certainty, and that’s going to be an additional strain on the resources there.”

He alleged the administration “is not double-checking to make sure that what we’re being told is accurate.”

Separately, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Friday wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressing concerns about what they believe is a fraud loophole.

The lawmakers say immigration officials are not verifying documentation that is presented to them as part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (or DACA), which gives a reprieve to some young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and generally applies to those who were already in the country.

They said the administration effectively has made it optional for officials to verify certain information given by applicants.

President Obama, though, told reporters the numbers right now at the border are trending in the right direction. “The number of apprehensions in August are down from July, and they’re actually lower than they were August of last year. Apprehensions in July were half of what they were in June,” Obama said.

But Smith says the problem hasn’t been solved, and he expects more surges at the border.

“There is a downturn with all categories of illegal immigrants in the summer. It’s the hottest month, it’s probably the most dangerous time to cross hundreds of miles of desert, and so this is not unusual,” Smith said. “I do think there will be an uptick again.”

Mike Emanuel currently serves as chief congressional correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC). He joined FNC in 1997 as a Los Angeles-based correspondent.

“Dreamers In Action” – Examiner – Immigration Reform – Illegal alien has raped multiple women in North Carolina and Virginia

Illegal alien has raped multiple women in North Carolina and Virginia

dreamer4

By Dave Gibson

Last week, Lesibe Simon Matsoake was convicted in Dare County Superior Court of first-degree rape and sentenced to between 20 and 25 years in prison. The rape took place in Kill Devil Hills on June 10, 2003.

The South African national has been charged with four other rapes, which were committed between 2003 and 2006. One of those occurred in Duck, NC, while three more took place in Virginia Beach.

Matsoake was living with his wife in Virginia Beach, at the time of the assaults. In 2007, Matsoake fled the country and went back to his native South Africa, according to court documents.

The Washington Daily News reported:

Matsoake had left behind hair clippers when he fled the country and it was DNA from the hair clippers that matched DNA collected in all five cases.

Matsoake was finally extradited back to the U.S. in 2012, and has been held in the Dare County Detention Center since his return. He will next face trial in Virginia Beach.

While the leadership of Virginia Beach has never formally declared the city to be a ‘sanctuary’ for illegal aliens, the way the leadership of Chicago or Tucson have done, it is very much a haven for foreign criminals. Of course, the resort city is dominated by hotels, restaurants, and housing developers, all of which employ tremendous numbers of illegal aliens.

Hotel owners often declare that they simply could not operate without the influx of Mexican and Central American nationals who can frequently be seen passed out drunk on the beach during the summer. The city has also seen thousands of over-priced cookie cutter homes built in the last several years, most of which have been constructed by illegal alien labor.

The building boom turned local convenience and home improvement store parking lots into gathering spots for groups of often drunken Latino men. While the city is very happy raking in huge profits in increased real estate taxes, they pass precious little of that revenue on to the citizens. While having a population of almost 450,000 residents, Virginia Beach still relies heavily on a volunteer rescue squad for medical emergencies.
