NYC immigration raid netted a dozen sex offenders

de-blasio-and-immigrants

De Blasio hardest hit.

From NY Post: Federal sources on Friday shared details about the 41 illegal immigrants arrested during a raid in and around New York City last week — and they include 12 people convicted of rape or sex offenses.

Of the 41 people rounded up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, 38 had criminal convictions, according to sources. Seven of them had been previously departed from the US but sneaked back in.

One of the foreign nationals, a 49-year-old from Jamaica, had sexually assaulted a child under the age of 11. He was busted in the Bronx. Three others had rape convictions.

A 31-year-old from El Salvador was a “self-admitted MS-13 gang member” and had been convicted of assault with a dangerous weapon. He was arrested in New Hyde Park.

ICE announced last week that more than 680 people, mostly criminals, had been rounded up during operations in cities across the country.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly described the operations as “routine” in a statement released Monday.

“Of those arrested, approximately 75 percent were criminal aliens, convicted of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual assault of a minor, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, indecent liberties with a minor, drug trafficking, battery, assault, DUI and weapons charges,” he wrote.

General strike, rally called for this weekend in Seattle

trump-triggeredFrom MyNorthwest.com: Better stock up on essentials before the weekend — just in case. A National General Strike, a Seattle area strike, and a rally have been called for. And as with any event in Seattle, whether it be a Seahawks game or a protest march, locals should plan for traffic and other interruptions.

A general strike means no working, no school, and no shopping. For many people, this should be easy. According to the Facebook event for the general strike, it will run from Feb. 17-20 (Friday through Monday). It covers the weekend and Presidents Day, which some workers have off as a holiday.

The event is organized by General Strike USA. It’s a bit wordy, but according to the event page:

WE DEMAND RECONSTITUTION. Disrupt the economy until we have a government, instead of being had by one. This is how we stop Trump and the entire corrupt political establishment before they destroy us and the planet we call home.

At this dangerous point in our history, we must confront a bitter truth: any political system that can allow Donald Trump to come to power is not a system worth keeping. Indeed, our elections, as controlled by the major political parties, offer us merely a contest of personalities rather than a choice between real alternatives. These contests mask the major parties’ underlying unity in a neoliberal economic establishment that serves the wealthy few at the expense of the impoverished many.

The general strike promotes a change of the system, not a change within the system, and encourages dismantling the establishment.

So far, the Facebook event has more than 2,000 people signed up, nationally, to participate, with 3,000 more interested in taking part. And 22,000 more have been invited to strike.

General strike in Seattle: A separate, unrelated general strike is organized in Seattle amid the national event. The Solidarity Strike is slated to take place between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., Feb. 17 at Volunteer Park in Seattle. It is organized by Solidarity for Justice in Education.

As the organization’s name implies, the strike is more focused on Washington’s education system as lawmakers are in session, attempting to fully fund it. The State of Washington has been ordered by its own Supreme Court to fully fund education. But there has been a tug-of-war between Democrats and Republicans on just how to do that.

The event notice states: Solidarity Demonstration to #Resist the WA Senate Republican proposal to fund education by undermining collective bargaining rights of Education Workers. All Labor Unions are welcome and encouraged to stand in support of this Legislative attack on Unions. No Right to Work in Washington.

The Seattle event has 1,300 people interested in taking part, and 324 confirmed to go. There are 1,600 more invited to come. Comments on the event’s page seem to have a theme — it would have a better turnout if organizers planned it on the weekend, instead of during the workday.

Free Daniel rally: Before Seattle’s strike in Volunteer Park, another event has been put together at the last minute by a range of organizers, including Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant.

The “Free Daniel Rally Against Deportations Fight Trump!” is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Seattle Federal Courthouse in downtown Seattle. At least 1,000 people are interested in attending, and more than 200 have committed to going. Another 1,400 have been invited.

The event is partially motivated by a series of immigration roundups and detainments. Then, locally, Daniel Ramirez Medina was detained after he had an encounter with the law. He is covered under regulations passed under the Obama administration that allows immigrants who entered the country as minors to stay in renewable two-year periods. That regulation is known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

The Facebook event states: Over the last week, Trump’s administration has detained and deported 600+ immigrants. Here in Seattle, on Tuesday 2/14, Daniel Ramirez Medina, a 23-year-old father who has received repeated approval to stay and work under the DACA program, was taken by ICE.  Medina has a court appearance on Friday during the rally.

The Department of Homeland Security argues another perspective. It says that those protected under DACA can be deported if they are perceived as threats to public safety.

According to a press release from DHS:

On February 10, Daniel Ramirez-Medina, a gang member, was encountered at a residence in Des Moines, Washington, during an operation targeting a prior-deported felon. He was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and was transferred to the Northwest Detention Center to await the outcome of removal proceedings before an immigration judge.

This case illustrates the work ICE fugitive operations teams perform every day across the country to remove public safety threats from our communities when they encounter them. ICE officers, along with their law enforcement partners, have and will continue to enforce our nation’s laws to protect public safety, national security, and to preserve the integrity of our immigration system.”

Over 680 arrested in U.S. immigration raids -homeland security secretary: 75% had a criminal background

maga

From MSN: U.S. immigration officers have arrested more than 680 people in recent operations, 75 percent of whom have criminal records, the homeland security chief said on Monday of actions that have alarmed immigrant rights groups.

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said the operations were routine and consistent with regular operations carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

Immigration rights advocates say agents are deporting migrants indiscriminately and that the operations, which they describe as raids, do not take into account an immigrant’s threat level or family ties to the United States (obviously the advocates did not take into account the criminal records of these illegal aliens) .

Kelly said in a statement that crimes committed by the illegal immigrants ranged from homicide to driving under the influence of alcohol.

Some of the immigrants arrested had ignored final orders of deportation, according to ICE, the agency responsible for immigrant arrests and deportations. The agency did not specify its reasoning for a handful of immigrants other than that they were in the country illegally.

Former Democratic President Barack Obama was criticized for being the “deporter in chief” after he deported over 400,000 people in 2012, more than any president in a single year. In 2014, Obama’s homeland security chief issued a memo directing agents to focus on deporting a narrow slice of immigrants, namely those who had recently entered the country or committed serious felonies. Immigrants who were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, for example, were treated as lower priorities for deportation.

President Donald Trump promised to deport 2 million to 3 million migrants with criminal records on taking office.

At a news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday, Trump said his administration had “really done a great job” in its recent arrests of immigrants. “We’re actually taking people that are criminals, very, very, hardened criminals in some cases with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems,” Trump said.

ICE said in a statement on Monday that the operations targeted immigrants in the Midwest, Los Angeles, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and San Antonio.

Not every immigrant arrested had a criminal record or prior order to leave the country, according to the data released by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In Los Angeles, for example, 151 out of the 161 immigrants arrested had criminal records, but the agency did not give a reason for the arrests of the 10 migrants with no criminal record.

The immigrants’ arrests followed Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order temporarily banning people from seven predominantly Muslim countries and all refugees from entering the United States. That order was suspended by a U.S. district judge, in a ruling upheld by a federal appeals court.

160 arrested across southern California in immigration crackdown: 150 had criminal histories

liberals-and-illegal-aliens

And yet libtards are still upset with deporting illegal criminal aliens.

From CBS Los Angeles: Federal immigration officials say 160 people were arrested across the Southland over the past week during a crackdown targeting “criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and immigration fugitives.”

The arrests took place in six counties during what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials described as a “five-day targeted enforcement operation” that began Monday and wrapped up around noon Friday.

Of the 160 arrested, about 150 had criminal histories, while five more had either been previously deported or had “final orders of removal”. Many of those arrested had prior felony convictions for “serious or violent offenses” including child sex crimes and assault.

The arrestees – which were 95 percent male – included nationals from a dozen countries, according to ICE.

Immigration advocates said they fielded calls Thursday from immigrants and lawyers reporting raids at homes and businesses in the greater Los Angeles area, including Van Nuys, Downey, Oxnard, San Bernardino, and other cities.

Lawyer Karla Navarrete said Friday agents looking for one man arrested another who is in the country illegally but has no criminal record. Navarrete says she sought to stop the man’s deportation and was told by ICE that things had changed. She says another lawyer filed federal court papers to halt it.

Multiple reports on social media suggested similar raids were conducted in Atlanta, Austin, and other U.S. cities, but there was no immediate confirmation from federal officials.

A report released Thursday showed nearly one in five immigrants in the U.S. illegally live in either the Los Angeles or New York City metropolitan areas. The report released by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center estimates more than 2 million immigrants in the country illegally lived in the two areas in 2014.

Illegal alien who committed felony identity theft deported: Liberals’ head explode

Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos

Convicted felon and illegal alien Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos

Identity theft is a serious problem. According to CNBC, identity theft and fraud cost consumers more than $16 billion. Some 15.4 million consumers were victims of identity theft or fraud last year, according to a new report from Javelin Strategy & Research. That’s up 16 percent from 2015, and the highest figure recorded since the firm began tracking fraud instances in 2004.

I know someone who had their identity stolen by an illegal alien. It has been a NIGHTMARE that this person has endured for YEARS.

Yet apparently to liberals, not everyone is equal under the law.

Several things to know about this now-deported illegal alien, Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos:

  • Guadalupe was first arrested in 2008 during a raid on her workplace when officers took her and several other employees into custody under the suspicion of identity theft — using false documents to gain employment, the New York Times wrote.
  • Guadalupe spent three months in a jail and then detention following her conviction of felony identity theft, the Los Angeles Times reported.
  • Guadalupe has been living in the U.S. illegally for 22 years. Plenty of time to obtain her U.S. citizenship, if she really desired to do so.
  • Guadalupe snuck across the border into Nogales, Arizona when she was 14.
  • Guadalupe’s husband is also an illegal alien.

From Fox6Now: Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, a mother of two who was taken into custody during her yearly check-in with immigration officials in Phoenix, has been deported to her native Mexico, advocates working with her family said Thursday.

Carlos Garcia, director of immigration rights group Puente Arizona, told reporters that Garcia de Rayos had been deported to Nogales, Mexico — the same border area where she illegally entered the United States as a teenager with her parents. Now 35, Garcia de Rayos has two children — both born in the United States.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Garcia de Rayos was detained “based on a removal order issued by the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review which became final in May 2013.”

Garcia de Rayos said a prayer and attended Mass before her yearly immigration check-in Wednesday, according to advocates. They said she knew that she could be deported.

Immigration advocates said they believe the deportation reflects President Donald Trump’s administration’s immigration hardline. “ICE had done what President Trump wanted — which is deport and separate our families,” Garcia said.

ICE officials, however, said the case had been working its way through the system and that the time for Garcia de Rayos to be deported had come.

“Ms. Garcia’s immigration case underwent review at multiple levels of the immigration court system, including the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the judges held she did not have a legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” ICE said in a statement.

“ICE will continue to focus on identifying and removing individuals with felony convictions who have final orders of removal issued by the nation’s immigration courts.”

Jill Sundberg: Murdered by illegal aliens

From NBC (George, Washington): Arrests have been made in connection with the shooting death of Jill Marie Sundberg, age 31, whose body was found 1.5 miles west of Silica Road around 12:25 p.m. on December 22nd, 2016.

A team consisting of Grant County Sheriff’s Office Detectives/Deputies, Interagency Narcotics Enforcement (INET) Detectives, U.S. Marshalls, all worked together during the investigation and subsequent arrest of:

  • Gustavo Tapia Rodriguez, and alleged shooter, age 39, charged with murder in the first degree and kidnapping in the first degree;
  • Ambrosio Mendez Villanueva, age 25, charged with murder in the first degree and kidnapping in the first degree;
  • Julio Mendez Villanueva, age 25, charged with murder in the first degree and kidnapping in the first degree;
  • Fernando Marcos Gutierrez, age 33, been charged with being a material witness along with immigration charges;
  • Salvador Espinoz a Gomez, age 24, charged with being a material witness, and possession of a firearm, drug charges, as well as immigration charges.

According to multiple witness accounts, the victim, Jill Sundberg, was in an argument with the alleged shooter, Gustavo Tapia Rodriguez, at the Shady Tree RV Park, on the evening in question. Shortly after the argument, she was reportedly taken against her will to the location where her body was later discovered. She was reportedly shot 13 times by the alleged shooter.

Sheriff Tom Jones said, “This was an immense collaborative effort between responding agencies. Our sincerest thanks to all and continued prayers to the Sundberg family for their senseless loss.”

More on this story:

Sundberg’s body was found just days before Christmas along Old Vantage Highway, and this week deputies arrested five people for her murder. Now her sister, Robbi Sundberg Rubio, is speaking about Jill’s death for the first time.

She says hearing about the arrests was tough, but it was the best possible thing they could have heard. “I mean I know it doesn’t bring her back,” said Rubio, “[but they’re] not out on the streets anymore.”

Deputies say Sundberg was kidnapped and shot 13 times after getting into an argument with one of her killers. Her sister says their family is especially grateful to the deputies for their hard work capturing the men responsible.

Other details surrounding the murder of Sundberg are still under investigation as her family continues to search for justice.

Grant County Chief Deputy Ryan Rectenwald verified the killers were illegal aliens. He called it an execution-style murder. Here him discuss this story here.
