Lawmakers, After Meeting With ICE, Say All Undocumented Immigrants at Risk of Deportation
NBC ^ | 2/16/2017

Posted on 02/17/2017 1:50:43 AM PST by Altura Ct.

Members of Congress expressed alarm that all undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are at risk of deportation. They said this was made clear to them in a meeting Thursday with a top Immigration and Customs Enforcement official.

There are approximately 11 million unauthorized immigrants in the U.S.

Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairwoman Michelle Lujan Grisham said that she and other lawmakers left a meeting with ICE Acting Director Tom Homan with a sense that with changes ordered by President Donald Trump through his executive orders, "all immigrant communities are at risk."

Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., said in a statement that, "in effect, every undocumented person in America is now vulnerable to arrest and removal as a result of the president's orders."

Jennifer Elzea, an ICE spokeswoman, said in a statement that Homan emphasized in the meeting that ICE "does not conduct arrests indiscriminately" or use checkpoints. Instead, officers target preidentified individuals for arrest at specific locations based on law enforcement leads."

But he also said that when officers encounter individuals in the U.S. in violation of federal immigration laws, they make arrests. "Every arrest is made on a case by case basis," Elzea said.

Rep. Linda Sanchez, a vice chair of the House Democratic Caucus, said that "they said we can and should expect many more arrests and removals this year."

This is what the Left/Rats have done to our beloved nation. It wasn’t long ago when society and most in government expected law enforcement to deport illegal aliens. Now, the status quo around much of the nation and government is to leave the interlopers alone, and in time, make them citizens.

It illustrates how past administrations have corrupted our national mindset.

I say America for Americans. Go Trump!

Illegal, not undocumented. They need to be corrected every time they lie.

The left should not be able to continue framing this ridiculous wet dream of obeying the law only when it doesn’t harm their voter segment (illegals).

Illegal means NOT legal. Never was, never will be until the actual federal statutes are changed. Any politician that thinks these are ‘special circumstances’ and they should be able to violate the laws should get deported with the rest of them.

Hard line it. Make ALL of them - every damn one - fear they could be grabbed at any moment. They need to be fearing the consequences of what their stealing from us are. The more vocal they get, the more they get singled out and picked up on radar. GO HOME!!!!!!

Mal-documented, really.

I doubt that more or less obvious Americans are being badgered for birth certificates, etc.

This business of selective law enforcement started with Obama’s refusal to accept the DOMA. We turned a corner when that happened and have been going downhill ever since. A line needs to be drawn here because once you accept borders don’t mean anything you no longer have a country

Trump has made it clear for almost two years that he was going to enforce immigration laws. None of this should be a surprise to these morons.

And start wringing your hands, as illustrated by Congwoman Nasty Pelousy. If you can also squeeze out a few fake tears, as did Sen. Chuck U. Schumer recently, that’s a bonus.

Agree. Also, it has worked its way into statute in some laws.

Take PPACA for example. There are literally hundreds of instances of the phrase “...at the Secretary’s [HHS] discretion..” embedded that give a government official to impose arbitrary rules and regulations with the force of law at his/her [or their President’s] pleasure. DEMOCRATS did this! Not one Republican voted for that law as I recall and Nancy Pelosi ‘deemed’ the measure passed (without a revote on the floor) when it came back from the Senate/House reconciliation..

Obama had 8 years to lay mines all over this government, and it is up to Trump and us to defuse them. It starts with obeying the law and not pandering to politicians who fear losing the illegal votes.

Fearing deportations, Mexico warns its citizens in the U.S.

LA Times ^ | 2/10/17 | Patrick McDonnell et al / FR Posted by markomalley

The much-publicized deportation of an immigrant who had been living illegally in Arizona prompted the Mexican government on Friday to urge its nationals in the United States to “take precautions” amid a “new reality” for the immigrant community.

The expulsion of Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, a Mexican citizen and mother of two U.S.-born children, “illustrates the new reality of the Mexican community living in the United States in the face of more severe application of migration controls,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

The ministry urged its citizens to “stay informed about immigration matters”’ and keep in touch with the extensive Mexican consular network in the United States. However, Mexican authorities acknowledged there is little they can do to slow deportations or counter other get-tough immigration policies of President Trump. (Excerpt) Read more at latimes.com ...


P-MARLOWE POSTED: If the Mexican govt and its consulate offices are found to be encouraging their citizens to break the laws of our country, then (a) revoke their diplomatic status, (b) evict their diplomats, and, (c) close the consulates.

DEMAND CONGRESS ACT NOW-—Domestic and international laws are being breached. Mexico’s dangerous and harmful threats could impact US trade, states’ economies and interstate and international commerce.

>>Members of Congress expressed alarm that all undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are at risk of deportation.

There’s that intellectually dishonest term for illegal alien, “undocumented immigrant.”

One thing you learn if you read enough about the intersection of identity fraud and illegal aliens is that they’re not undocumented. They have all sorts of fraudulent documents, this is obvious. This has real costs for the people whose info is being used for fraudulent purposes, a cost generally not recognized by those shilling for illegals.

It’s long past time to quit playing along with the Left’s language game here. Any time someone uses the term “undocumented immigrant”, Republicans need to ask “do you mean fraudulently documented illegal aliens?”

Any Rep alarmed by this is not an American Representative, rather he is a representative of foreign interests.

“...Illegal means NOT legal. Never was, never will be until the actual federal statutes are changed....”

Sunup to sundown one cannot ignore the meaning of “illegal”. That said, I have friends that are on or have been on both sides of legal.
In my view, the absence of enforcement by elected and appointed officials has been the single-most cause of illegal immigration. Human nature being thus, “illegals” have simply taken advantage of the situation.
In order for elected/appointed officials to appreciate the magnitude of their malfeasance, they deserve a lengthy sabbatical at a remote Grey Stone Hotel.
In the meantime, cleaning up politicians mess is going to be a very painful exercise for everyone but politicians.

Duh.

They are here illegally.

They are not citizens.

They perform identity theft to get benefits that don’t belong to them.

It doesn’t matter how long they’ve been here or what kind of sob stories they create.

Are we a nation of laws, or not?

It’s astonishing that our culture is so distorted that Congress is surprised by this.

When it comes to rulings by hack judges, anyway.

This will result in an increase in self deportations.

That is A Good Thing.

Do they feel strongly enough to propose a law for open borders? It isn’t as if we don’t have a process in place to enter the country LEGALLY. If you take something from a store illegally you don’t get to keep it because it has been in your possession for a long time and is now a family heirloom or something you counted on. Fact remains you STOLE it. We won’t let our country and resources be stolen.
