Portland, OR taxpayers provided $500,000 for illegal aliens facing deportation/seeking asylum

A new study from Portland State University study (August 2019) found that more than 38,000 people experienced homelessness in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties in 2017. The study also found that some 107,000 people were housing insecure or at risk of homelessness.

Portland Business Journal reports that the study also estimated that it would cost between $2.6 billion and $4.1 billion to provide housing, support, services and operations to the homeless in the region over the next 10 years. Providing rent assistance would also cost between $8.6 billion and $21 billion over the next decade.

Yet the taxpayers cough up half a million dollars to assist illegal aliens. And that number is going to go up to $2M.

Another demorat-run city putting the needs of illegal aliens above those of their own U.S. citizens.

Portland’s free legal assistance program, called Universal Representation, provided at least 341 people with lawyers to represent them in deportation hearings.

According to Oregon Live, the program, called Universal Representation, also helped at least 105 would-be refugees apply for asylum. And of the people served, 23 were unaccompanied immigrant children. More from their story:

“Portland’s City Council approved the service last year and put $500,000 toward its budget from property tax collections. It is run through the Equity Corps of Oregon, with lawyers provided by nonprofits Catholic Charities of Oregon, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, Immigration Counseling Service, Innovation Law Lab and Metropolitan Public Defender.

The program was championed by Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who said at the time of its passage that hundreds of unauthorized immigrants living in Portland faced deportation and could not afford lawyers.

She said providing attorneys free of charge was a matter of “protecting everyone’s constitutional right to due process.” Eudaly didn’t respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

This year, Multnomah County allocated $290,000 to the initiative and the state approved an additional $2 million to expand the service statewide — the first state to do so in the nation.

According to internal city progress reports, the people who received legal services through Portland’s program hailed from many countries: Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Nicaragua, Russia, Ukraine and Venezuela.”

Demorat-run Los Angeles: 124 confirmed cases of Typhus amid fears Bubonic Plague is affecting homeless

From Daily Mail: An explosion of rats in Los Angeles has lead to a surge in cases of Typhus and could pave the way for a public health crisis.

According to Reform California, there have been 124 confirmed cases of Typhus in LA County this year.

On top of the increase in Typhus cases, experts fear the return of a disease that wiped out a third of Europe in the 12th century, the Bubonic Plague.

Though the city has only three confirmed cases of the plague in the past 40 years, the conditions on the streets of LA make it a perfect breeding ground for plague carrying rats.

The reason for such a large influx of rats is largely attributed to the city’s increasing homeless population.

According to Dailywire, people living on LA streets grew by 16 per cent between 2018 and 2019. They added that the amount of people without somewhere to live has caused sanitation in problem areas to fall short with trash and feces piling up on the street.

These conditions can attract rodents and cause a perfect breeding ground for rat-borne diseases.

California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, acknowledged the city’s severe sanitation problem, astonished that a medieval disease could be making its rounds in a modern city like LA.

Typhus is most likely to be found in people in close proximity to rodents but other stray animals like cats and opossums also carry the disease. Symptoms typically begin within two weeks of exposure and can include chills, nausea, vomiting, body aches, loss of appetite, stomach pain and rashes.

Without treatment, Typhus can eventually lead to organ failure and death.

Plague, though not as deadly as it was 600 years ago, can still be fatal if left untreated. The most famous symptom is a large pus-filled swelling or ‘bubo’ which grows in the groin or under the armpit. This is usually accompanied by seizures, muscle cramps, fever and chills.

California woman who slapped President Trump supporter during 2017 rally convicted

Unhinged Aguilar/Orange County DA photo

Some glimpse of sanity – and accountability – left in California.

As reported by Fox News: A California woman accused of slapping a Trump supporter during a Make America Great Again rally in Orange County more than two years ago has been convicted, prosecutors said.

Jessica Aguilar, 23, of Sacramento, was found guilty Wednesday of one misdemeanor count of battery for slapping a man twice across the face during the March 25, 2017 rally at Bolsa Chica State Beach.

According to The Orange County District Attorney’s Office, Aguilar was sentenced to 20 days in jail, 10 days of community service, and three years of probation. Prosecutors said Aguilar’s jail sentence will be “vacated” if she completes community service.

“The Orange County District Attorney’s Office does not condone random acts of violence,” Orange District Attorney Todd Spitzer (republican) said. “With political dissension on the rise across the country, it is important to remember that right to protest is afforded to everyone; no one has the right to commit an act of violence against someone because they don’t agree with their views. If someone chooses to commit violence, they will be prosecuted.”

The March 2017 rally, which drew about 2,000 participants, turned violent after counter-protesters tried to block Trump supporters from marching on the state beach, the Orange County Register reported at the time.

Three of the counter-protestors were charged with felonies for allegedly spraying pepper spray at Trump supporters.

ICE arrests illegal alien accused of rape two months after sanctuary county released him

Sheriff Garry McFadden: Won’t honor ICE detainers

Apparently this sheriff is concerned about gun violence. But criminal illegal aliens are A-OK I guess…

As reported by Robert Gearty at Fox News: A North Carolina sheriff has been accused by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials of ignoring an ICE detainer in the case of an illegal immigrant who was captured this month — two months after he was released on bond in a rape case.

“By releasing a previously deported alien facing serious criminal charges, Mecklenburg County chose to release a serious public safety threat onto the streets of Charlotte where he was free to potentially harm others for nearly two months until his capture by ICE,” the agency officials said Friday.

Charlotte police arrested Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo June 14 on rape and indecent liberties with a minor charges. Online records show Pacheco-Leonardo was accused of having sex with a child under the age of 13. He was due back in court in October.

ICE said it issued a detainer the next day but it wasn’t honored and the 33-year-old Honduran national was released June 16 by the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office. The immigration enforcement agency said Pacheco-Leonardo reentered the U.S. illegally after being deported in 2006.

“This arrest is simply the latest in a continuing list of unlawfully present foreign nationals released from Mecklenburg County custody over the past nine months despite serious criminal charges that pose a clear threat to public safety,” ICE said.

ICE said the 48-hour detainer could have given the agency time to take custody of Pacheco-Leonardo to deport him.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden defended himself Friday at a news conference in which he took no questions, Fox 46 Charlotte reported. McFadden said Pacheco-Leonardo was released after he put up $100,000 in bond set by a Mecklenburg judge in the rape case.

The sheriff said ICE could have sought a criminal arrest warrant for Pacheco-Leonardo for illegal re-entry but did not. “The reasons for that decision have yet to be satisfactorily explained to me or to the public,” he said.

He stopped honoring ICE detainers after being elected sheriff last fall.

Appears that San Francisco cares more about their homeless criminals than law-abiding citizens

Would you trust that this guy will show up for his trial?/SF Police Dept. photo

Just like Seattle, it appears that San Francisco has no desire to hold the homeless accountable for their criminal actions.

Both demorat-run cities allow the homeless to rule the streets with no real consequences for their actions. No wonder both cities have become such sh*tholes.

The latest out of San Francisco? A 25-year-old man – with no permanent address in San Francisco – was released from jail after attacking a woman at the front door of her condo building. He was charged with false imprisonment, attempted robbery and misdemeanor battery.

As reported by Katie Dowd at the SF Gate, the perp is to return to court next month.

Um yeah, you can be assured he’ll return for his trial next month. He’s also ordered to stay away from the victim.

According to the victim, police took 30 minutes to arrive. Yet SF Police say they responded in 22 minutes.

The victim tweeted the following to Gov. Newsom:

“@GavinNewsom Please watch this video of me getting attacked at my front door less than 72-hrs ago. The man who attacked me was released this morning because the judge, Christine Van Aken believes that this man is not a danger to our community. “PLEASE SAVE OUR CITY!!”

Attention Nancy: San Francisco saw 150 percent increase in fentanyl-related deaths last year

Nancy Pelosi’s pinned tweet (as of Saturday afternoon):

“House Democrats have accomplished so much already. So far we have taken action to… Defend Americans’ access to affordable health care and prescription drugs.”

As reported by Fox News: The number of deaths from fentanyl overdoses in San Francisco jumped by nearly 150 percent last year, according to a report by the city’s public health department made public this week.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 89 deaths in the city were attributed to fentanyl overdoses, up from 37 deaths in 2017. By comparison, 70 people died from prescription opioid overdoses and 60 deaths were attributed to heroin overdoses.

A preliminary report released in June attributed 57 deaths to fentanyl overdoses, but health officials told the Chronicle they had expected that figure to increase as the city medical examiner determined the cause of more deaths.

The city has experienced an uptick in fentanyl-related deaths since 2008, when five deaths were reported. In 2010, six deaths were attributed to the drug, which killed 22 people in 2016.

It’s not a huge surprise to see this, although it’s certainly disappointing and sad to have lost this many lives in the city,” Dr. Phillip Coffin, the director of substance use research for the San Francisco Department of Public Health, told the Chronicle. “Unfortunately, there is no locality that can withstand the introduction of fentanyl without some increase in mortality.”

In its legal form, fentanyl is used to treat patients recovering from surgery. However, the synthetic drug is often mixed with other drugs like heroin and cocaine in powder form for those looking to get high, KTVU reported in June.

“In San Francisco, that’s how fentanyl came to us. In counterfeit pills at first a few years ago. At this point it is its own drug supply,” Kristen Marshall from the Drug Overdose Prevention & Education Project told the station.

Fentanyl is a highly addictive opiate that is 100 times more potent than other prescription opioids like morphine, according to the paper.

Man who advocated for immigrants killed by illegal alien who was ordered to be deported 8 months ago

Sean Buchanan: Permanently separated from his family

If you’re wondering what type of immigrants he probably advocated for, keep in mind that legal immigrants don’t need an advocate.

From Daily Mail: A staunch supporter of the rights of immigrants – and a married father of five – was killed last week when an illegal immigrant from El Salvador facing deportation crashed into his motorcycle in Colorado.

Sean Buchanan, 45, was driving northbound on Highway 83 on August 2 when Colorado State Patrol say a southbound truck operated by Miguel Ramirez Valiente went off the side of the road, then over-corrected into the wrong lane and crashed into Buchanan’s bike, killing him.

Valiente, an undocumented immigrant who was slated for deportation eight months earlier, was charged with misdemeanor careless driving with a revoked license in the deadly accident.

In an ironic twist, Buchanan was known among friends a passionate advocate for all immigrants.

Officials do not suspect that drugs, alcohol or excessive speed played a role in the collision, reported The Colorado Springs Gazette.

Valiente has a criminal record in Colorado that includes a 2018 conviction for a DUI charge, which earned him a year’s probation and the revocation of his license, and a guilty plea to a charge of reckless endangerment in a child neglect case.

On August 1, less than 24 hours before the deadly crash that killed Buchanan, Valiente’s probation was extended because he had failed to complete his court-ordered treatment program and community service.

He made national headlines in January when he sought sanctuary at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in January to avoid deportation to El Salvador during the federal government shutdown. ‘I can’t be separated from them,’ he said at a press conference at the time, according to The Denver Channel. ‘I have always worked hard to support my family, and they depend on me.’

But according to a close acquaintance of Valiente’s speaking to The Denver Channel on condition of anonymity, the reality of his life was far from the public image he had sought to create. ‘This family deserves to know who they’re dealing with,’ she said. ‘He’s an alcoholic and an abuser.’

The woman argued that the fatal accident that took Buchanan’s life could have been prevented, especially given Valiente’s history of run-ins with the law.

‘My personal opinion is that we don’t do enough to stop this kind of thing because it could have been stopped,’ she said. ‘You’re here and you’re a hard worker and you’re not causing trouble and doing bad things, that’s fine, but he had already been in trouble, several times, and now we have a death because of it.’

Buchanan had just started a new job in communications. His wife of 16 years, Kathy Wierenga Buchanan, is the author of The Brio series of books for teenage girls, and a writer and director for Adventures in Odyssey, an Evangelical Christian radio show produced by the conservative organization Focus on the Family.

The Buchanans have five children: daughters Jasyln, 15, Maleah, 12 and Bella, 10, and two sons they adopted from Burundi, eight-year-old Michla and six-year-old Divin.

The party of violence: Demorats oppose bill to make water attacks on cops a felony

Imagine believing you have the right to throw something at someone you believe doesn’t “respect” you. Demorats are unhinged.

From Fox News: A Republican bill that would increase penalties for throwing water on cops, after a series of incidents in which members of New York’s Finest were doused by bucket-wielding mobs, is facing some initial Democratic opposition months before the bill could even be taken up.

Republicans in the state’s assembly were angered by viral videos of cops being drenched by groups of local residents — with NYPD officers apparently feeling unable to respond and walking away. Police have since made a number of arrests related to the cases, but the incidents have sparked national attention, with President Trump calling the incidents “a total disgrace” last month.

GOP lawmakers are now introducing a bill that would make throwing or spraying water “or any other substance” on a police officer a class E felony and punishable by up to four years in jail.

Assemblyman Mike LiPetri, who introduced the bill, told Fox News in an interview Thursday that there are signs the bill has some bipartisan support from some Democrats — particularly in the state Senate — but acknowledged early signs of other Democrats pushing back in the Assembly.

“I think anything in Albany is always a tough fight, it’s just a matter of persistence and working together to unite not divide both Houses in making sure this effort is passed,” he said.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, who will decide whether the bill gets brought up for a vote, indicated his opposition to the measure this week.

Carl Heastie

“But I don’t know if always proposing new penalties and laws [is the answer] … I think on the positive end we should continue to try and establish more of a community and police response,” he said, according to The New York Post. “I think that’s more beneficial instead of always saying ‘we are going to lock people up.’’

“I think people should respect the police department but I think Police should also respect communities,” he added.

Failed city of Seattle: Police response to business owner whose customer was assaulted by homeless criminal, “you’re pretty far down the line, pal”

As I’ve mentioned many, many times here on this blog: The demorat-run city of Seattle has a major homeless crisis in which the bureaucrats do nothing to solve. They allow the homeless to commit crimes, camp and urinate and defecate on the streets, and do drugs in the open. See the following:

Insanity in Seattle: Homeless man attempts to kidnap child. Guess how many previous arrests/convictions he has…
Seattle Police refused to remove homeless from construction site before they caused $1.3 million fire damage
Rape, strangulation and assault: Three attacks by homeless people in Seattle in less than a month

In the area known as “Pioneer Square” in downtown Seattle, a restaurant has had more than their share of run-ins with the homeless. MyNorthwest.com reports of an assault on one of their customers by a homeless woman. As the restaurant owner describes the homeless who harass their customers and how the police respond:

“On at least a weekly basis, customers enjoying lunch and drinks outside on the patio are threatened by people living on the street. Howard said that this has happened between 10 and 20 times in recent months.

Calls to Seattle police typically take three to four hours to result in an in-person response, if police show up at all.

“When I call back, often times it’s the pat answers — ‘Our service is overwhelmed, they’re dealing with more important crimes, they’ll get to you, you’re pretty far down the line, pal,’” Howard said.”

Another assault occurred on Monday and Howard tweeted the police and was told he needed to call 911. A lot of good that will do, unless the homeless assaulter decides to stick around for three to four hours.

Read here about this poor business owner’s encounters with the homeless and how he’s lost customers and employees due to the homeless harassment.

Imagine living in a city that allows criminals to openly commit crimes without any accountability or protection for tax-paying business owners.

That’s the state today of many demorat-run cities.
