1 in 10 U.S. births are born to illegals & Donald Trump’s plan

Mothers and their babies march down Broadway for a May Day rally at Los Angeles City Hall. (Luis Sinco / LAT) May 1, 2007

Women and their anchor babies march in a 2007 (Marxist) May Day rally, Los Angeles.

The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizenship to every child born in America. Section 1 of Amendment XIV says:

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.

That law is being widely abused.

The above CBS news video says:

  • 300,000 babies born every year in the Untied [sic] States are born to mothers who are here illegally.
  • 40% of the babies in McAllen Texas Medical Center are born to illegals. The Center has delivered babies from women still wet from swimming across the Mexican-U.S. border. U.S. hospitals are mandated to treat all emergency room patients.
  • Fabiola, a Mexican woman illegally crossed the Mexican border into the U.S. when she was 6 months pregnant for the express purpose of giving birth here so that her child is a U.S. citizen by virtue of the 14th Amendment. Via her “anchor baby,” Fabiola no longer needs fear being deported. She will also become a U.S. citizen herself by having her anchor baby be her sponsor. To add insult upon injury, she gave birth to her anchor baby via a $47,000 C-section that was paid for by U.S. taxpayers.
  • Nor is Fabiola alone. She said on camera that many Mexican women do the same thing.
  • Each year, the government taxpayers spend $1.1 billion on the health care of illegals.

Donald Trump has published a position paper entitled “Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great Again.” It is available on the Trump campaign website, here.

In an article for American Thinker, Alan Wall summarizes the Trump plan:

  1. Triple the number of ICE  [Immigration and Customs  Enforcement] officers.
  2. Nationwide e-verify.
  3. Mandatory return of criminal aliens.
  4. Detention, not catch-and-release.
  5. Defund sanctuary cities.
  6. Enhanced penalties for overstaying a visa.
  7. Cooperate with local gang task forces.
  8. End birthright citizenship.

Wall left out a #9 to Trump’s immigration reform plan:

9. Build a wall — a massive, impenetrable wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep out illegals “immigrants”. Trump says seismic and other equipment could detect and stop any underground tunnels to circumvent the wall. (Washington Post)

Orly Taitz, Esq., maintains that cancelling U.S. financial aid to Mexico for just one year would pay for the wall.

Mexico is one of the top 10 recipients of U.S. foreign aid — $757.7 million in fiscal year 2010. That figure does not include the $millions more that the U.S. is helping Mexico save by taking any and all Mexicans who illegally crosses the border.

The GOP is a fraud and will betray Republican voters, again

Dr. Eowyn:

Interesting article on how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (CoC) is Wall St., not main street, why CoC supports Obamacare, amnesty for illegals, and Common Core, and most importantly, how the Republican Party (the elites) serves the interests of the CoC.

That, in turn, explains why, despite being elected a majority in both House and Senate, Republicans have done nothing about Obamacare and illegal “immigration”.

All of which makes the GOP little different from the Democratic Party, certainly at the national level. They are a uniparty: Tweedledee and Tweedledum. See:

This also explains why the super-rich are bankrolling the presidential campaigns of both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.

On the other hand, if Donald Trump goes third party, which he has refused to rule out, that will mean a split in the 2016 Republican vote (Rasmussen Reports estimates as much as 31% of Republicans may vote for Trump), which will ensure a victory for the Democratic candidate.

Looks like we’re screwed no matter what.

Begin with the end in mind – I’m not trying to convince anyone that Donald Trump is  running a campaign to actually win the GOP nomination.

Factually, I’m as uncertain and perhaps more skeptical as the next person. However, given that Trump has actually done things he normally wouldn’t do if this was a mere publicity stunt (ie. stock divestitures, removal of conflicts etc.), for the sake of intellectual argument, I’m going to assume, cautiously yet optimistically, he’s in it to win it.

So why support him?

Argument #1 – After all, he’s been a democrat, an independent, a Republican, and well, I have consistently despised Charlie Crist.

Counter Argument – Then again, what about Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, and Orin Hatch, and Lindsey Graham, and John McCain, and John Cornyn, and Thad Cochran and, well, you get the point…. What’s the difference between supporting those consistently Republican “Republicans” only to have them advocate for…

Carly Fiorina won the “lesser” 2016 GOP debate

Before the prime time debate on Thursday night (Aug. 6, 2015) of the 10 contenders for the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nomination, there was an earlier debate that afternoon of 7 contenders who didn’t make the primetime cut because they had polled at less than 10%.

Among them was Carly Fiorina, 60, businesswoman and former CEO of the high-tech company, Hewlett-Packard — the first woman to lead a top-20 U.S. company. The other 6 were Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Jim Gilmore.

Carly Fiorina

The buzz on social media as well as “talking heads” media analysts is that Fiorina clearly won that debate.

Here are the highlights of Fiorina in the debate:

1. Fiorina took on Hillary, describing the latter with 4 words, “Not trustworthy. No Accomplishments,” and calling her a liar, which Hillary is:

“Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi, she lies about e-mails. She is still defending Planned Parenthood. And she is still her party’s frontrunner. We need a nominee who is going to throw every punch, not pull punches, and someone who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring.”

2. On foreign policy, Fiorina slammed Obama’s Iran deal, saying he “broke every rule of negotiation.” Fiorina said she would make two calls in her first day in the Oval Office:

“The first one to my good friend Bibi Netanyahu to reassure him we will stand with Israel. The second phone call to the president of Iran. He might not take my phone call, but he will get the message. And the message is this: Until you open every nuclear and every military facility to full, open, anytime, anywhere for real inspections, we are going to make it as difficult as possible for you to move money around the global financial system.”

3. On Donald Trump, who reportedly had received a phone call from Bill Clinton shortly before Trump announced his run for the White House [just think for a moment what this means. See “Trump threatens third-party run. Stalking horse for Hillary?”], Fiorina said:

“I didn’t get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race. Did any of you get a phone call from Bill Clinton? I didn’t. Maybe it’s because I hadn’t given money to the foundation or donated to his wife’s senate campaign.”

Here’s a video of the entire debate:

Illegal held in rape, murder of California woman was on probation

Fox News: One of two men charged in connection with last month’s home invasion, rape and fatal bludgeoning of a 64-year-old California woman was in the U.S. illegally and on probation, the News-Press has learned.

Victor Aureliano Martinez Ramirez, 29, who is charged along with Jose Fernando Villagomez, 20, in the July 24 attack in Santa Maria, Calif., was on probation for committing battery against an unidentified woman on May 22, 2014, while in possession of methamphetamine. He was charged twice this year for violating probation, once for possessing a concealed knife and the other for drugs, but a Santa Barbara judge allowed him to enter a substance abuse center in Santa Maria in lieu of jail. According to County Jail officials, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement declined to issue an immigration detainer that would have required local authorities to hold him for deportation.

Police say Marilyn Pharis was beaten with a hammer and sexually assaulted in the morning attack, and died later at a local hospital. An autopsy was set for Thursday.  Ramirez fled, but was tracked from the scene by a police dog to a nearby home, according to authorities.

Ramirez pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, first-degree burglary, and assault with intent to commit rape. Those charges could be upgraded to murder following Pharis’ death. He was being held on $1 million bail.

Villagomez was booked Tuesday into Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of sexual assault and attempted murder. He was already behind bars after a July 28 arrest over a probation violation.

In May, Villagomez allegedly committed battery against Miguel Angel Romero and was found in possession of methamphetamine. He was sentenced to three years of supervised probation June 17 and was also allowed to enter a drug treatment center in Santa Maria.

Both men will next appear in court on Aug. 13. The autopsy findings could result in murder charges against both.

Huntington Park Appoints Illegals To City Commissions

Councilman Jhonny Pineda

Councilman Jhonny Pineda

CBS: Huntington Park (California) is making history and not everyone is happy about it. Councilman Jhonny Pineda announced at Monday night’s city council meeting the appointment of two undocumented immigrants illegals as commissioners, CBS2/KCAL9’s Kara Finnstrom reports.

“You are out of order!” one woman in the crowd yelled at the councilmembers during the meeting. Some critics say Pineda, who joined the council in March, specifically picked Medina and Zatarain because they worked on his campaign. Others say they don’t believe undocumented immigrants illegals should serve the government this way.

“We’re sending the wrong message: you can be illegal and you can come and works for the city,” a woman told Finnstrom. Pineda stresses that the two appointees would not be paid – federal law prohibits that – and that they will have no power to determine city policy.

Frank Medina will join the health and education commission and Julian Zatarain will be working with the parks and recreation commission. Both are young men who Pineda says have a long history of volunteering for the city and the undocumented illegal community.

The 32-year-old councilman says he picked these two men, first and foremost, for their accomplishments and because he promised voters on the campaign trail he’d create opportunities for the city’s sizable undocumented immigrant illegal demographic. “We need to make sure that we bring everyone together to the table here in Huntington Park so that we can make sure we’re sharing the same vision,” said Pineda.

City Mayor Karina Macias threw her support behind the appointments. The appointments won’t be official until processed by the council and Medina and Zatarain pass a LifeScan background check.

Pineda says the move is historic, and would make Huntington Park the first city to have undocumented immigrants illegals on city commissions.

Heartbreaking: Immigrants object to growing use of ankle monitors after detention

illegal

LA Times: The Honduran woman and her 11-year-old son were just preparing to leave the detention center in remote Karnes City, Texas, and rejoin family in Chicago, when officials sprang a surprise on her.

After spending two months at the facility, the woman faced a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent insisting she accept an electronic ankle monitor as a condition of her release.

No, this is unjust. I don’t want you to put it on,” said the 32-year-old woman, who asked to be identified only by her first name, Nely, due to her pending immigration case. The official, she recalled, told her: “We give you free food, free clothing, a place to sleep. So you just need to deal with it.”

GPS ankle monitors are becoming standard equipment for immigration officials along the border. In July, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, used about 9,300 ankle monitors at a time — 40% more than about six months ago. They are run by a government contractor, BI Inc., a subsidiary of the country’s second-largest prison company, which also operates immigration detention centers.

Officials say the monitors are a cheap and effective way to ensure that immigrants released from detention attend court hearings.

The monitors cost an average of $5 a day per person, according to an ICE spokesman, and are part of the agency’s Alternatives to Detention program, which also may require immigrants to report by phone or in person. In contrast, detention costs an average of $130 per day per person, and can cost over $330 at some detention centers.

It’s not clear how effective ankle monitors are. Last week, officials stopped releasing figures for how many immigrants wearing the devices show up in court, saying they were trying to verify data.

Immigrants, who call the monitors grilletes, or shackles, complain that they are uncomfortable, inconvenient and carry a stigma. “They feel like a criminal,” said Sister Norma Pimentel, who runs an immigrant aid center on the Texas border, in McAllen. “They say, ‘How will I be able to work with that?’ They pray they don’t get it.”

The ankle monitors are part of the government effort to handle the surge of thousands of children and families, mostly Central Americans, who have been crossing into the U.S. for more than a year.

The U.S. went from one 95-bed immigrant family detention center in Pennsylvania to three, the two newest in Karnes City and Dilley, Texas. By year’s end, the centers will have a total of 3,700 beds. There are now about 1,700 adults and children in family detention. As it has expanded, family detention has also increasingly come under attack by immigration lawyers, advocacy groups and lawmakers, who have pressured ICE to release more immigrants.

In June, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced several changes to family detention, including releasing on reasonable bonds and with ankle monitors family members found to have a fear of persecution in their home countries.

Johnson told the House Judiciary Committee that ICE was “ramping up” its use of ankle monitors and intended to more than double the total number monitored, from 23,000 last year to 53,000 in 2016. Ankle monitors are not issued to those under 18, pregnant women or others with “significant medical issues.”

ICE officials say ankle monitors are used “on a case-by-case basis with a priority for detention of serious criminal offenders and other individuals who pose a significant threat to public safety. Those who are not subject to mandatory detention and don’t pose a threat to the community may be placed on some form of supervision.”

But immigrant advocates argue that many detainees are coerced into wearing them. Last week, the CARA Pro Bono Legal Project in Dilley and other immigrant lawyers’ groups sent a letter to ICE Director Sarah Saldaña demanding the agency stop using the monitors.

In a motion also filed last week, they allege ICE officials recently summoned about 100 immigrant women in the detention center at Dilley to makeshift trailer courtrooms and urged them to sign paperwork to be released with ankle monitors in lieu of bond.

Several of the women filed affidavits saying they had been forced to accept ankle monitors. “I signed it because I am desperate to get out of here. My son has been extremely ill,” a Guatemalan woman wrote in one of the affidavits.

ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen says they are reviewing the claims.

Donald Trump and Mexico’s culture of rape

Donald Trump

On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced he’s a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination in the 2016 presidential election, he said this about the illegals whom the Obama administration is allowing to pour across our border:

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

For saying that there are drug-traffickers and rapists among illegal “immigrants,” Trump is reviled and condemned. Univision and NBC Universal have cut ties with Trump, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns; Macy’s has discontinued his clothing line.

Trump defended himself to CNN, saying that he got his information from an article in Fusion.net that, ironically, is owned by the same Univision that severed ties with Trump over his remark. The Fusion article by

Before they can reach the American Dream, many migrant women have to survive a Mexican nightmare. A staggering 80 percent of Central American girls and women crossing Mexico en route to the United States are raped along the way, according to directors of migrant shelters interviewed by Fusion.

That’s up from previous reports by non-profit organizations like Amnesty International that estimate the number at 60 percent.

“Women and girl migrants, especially those without legal status traveling in remote areas or on trains, are at heightened risk of sexual violence at the hands of criminal gangs, people traffickers, other migrants or corrupt officials,” the 2010 Amnesty International report stated. “…Many criminal gangs appear to use sexual violence as part of the “price” demanded of migrants. According to some experts, the prevalence of rape is such that people smugglers may require women to have a contraceptive injection prior to the journey as a precaution…”

…“I think almost all of the women are abused on the way north,” said lawyer Elvira Gordillo, who helps trafficked migrant women who get trafficked into prostitution.

But what we hear from NOW and U.S. feminists is the sound of silence.

It’s not just migrant women who illegally cross the U.S. border who are raped. An alarming percentage of girls and women in Mexico are raped — by their family members. 

From a Spanish-language article, “Evitan denunciar familiar violador (They avoid reporting a family rapist),” by Gomez Palacio, in the Mexican newspaper el Siglo, July 11, 2015 (h/t Vdare):

[R]apes are not reported because 70 percent of them are committed by close relatives such as fathers, brothers and uncles. So many go unreported because of shame and because women are not sufficiently empowered.

[Note: English translation of the above passage is by Google]

7 of every 10 rapes are incest rapes!

What Mexico has is a Culture of Rape.

Here are some other inconvenient facts about illegals that the MSM Ministry of Truth isn’t telling you (source: Breitbart):

  • In the state of Texas alone over the last few years, more than 2,000 illegal aliens were deported after committing sex crimes. Nearly 1,000 illegal aliens have been convicted of sex crimes against children.
  • Mexico and Colombia account for more than 90% of the U.S. heroin supply, and nearly all of it is smuggled into this country by Mexican traffickers.
  • According to the federal government’s crime statistics, of 78,022 primary offense cases in fiscal year 2013, 38.6% were illegal immigrant offenders.
  • Nearly half of federal crimes occur in just 5 of the United States’ 94 districts — along the Mexican border.
  • Of the 61,529 criminal cases initiated by federal prosecutors last fiscal year, more than 40%—or 24,746—were filed in court districts neighboring the Mexican border. Of those, nearly 22% (13,383) were drug related, 19.7% (12,123) were violent crimes.
  • More than 2,000 sex offenders are deported by ICE every year in Texas alone. Of the 862 alien sex offenders deported by the Texas-based offices, about 27% were convicted of sex offenses against children.
  • Nearly 1,000 Texas children are sexually assaulted by illegals over the last 3 years. These are convictions, which means the number of Texas kids sexually assaulted by illegals which are reported is even higher, which means the number of unreported pedophilia committed by illegals is higher still.
  • In 2013, the Obama Administration released 36,007 illegals with 88,000 criminal convictions. Those convictions included 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions, and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions. In January 2015, the DHS admitted to Sen. Grassley that 1,000 of the 36,007 released had gone on to commit more crime including: terroristic threats, lewd acts with a minor, various types of assault, DUI, robbery, hit-and-run, gang activity, rape, and child cruelty.
  • The number of criminal illegals deported has jumped from 7,000 in 2007 to 79,000 in 2010 — an increase of 72,000 in just 3 years! These criminals are not being stopped at the border. These criminals are being deported after making it across the border and committing tens of thousands of crimes.

John Nolte of Breitbart writes:

When it comes to taking the Second Amendment civil rights away from American citizens and legal immigrants, the media regularly exploit the dead with a cry of, “If it saves just one child!” But when it comes to stopping illegals from streaming over our porous border to sexually assault our children, the media not only doesn’t call for better border enforcement, the media covers these crimes up….

As far the rape-deniers in the media, there is no appealing to these godless liars. It is up to New Media and citizen journalists to get the facts out there.
