(CNSNews.com) The Department of Homeland Security is gagging local law enforcement agencies around the country to protect the privacy of illegal aliens.
Under "revised" 287(g) agreements between the Department of Homeland Securitys Immigration and Customs Enforcement division and state and local law enforcement agencies, any information about local police efforts to enforce federal immigration law must be cleared through ICE before it can be released to the media or the public. DHS says it is doing this to protect the privacy of illegal aliens.

The list, ping
Just more Pro-Illegal Alien/Anti-American nonsense....
The sad part is that there are many GOPers who support the Obama Admin on their Illegal Alien Amnesty plans....while the majority of Americans want them deported
Privacy of illegal aliens? Criminals??? But if DHS or the media decides to smear an innocent USA citizen, it’s okay.
Take a look at this one, written by a Mexican. Sent out today by NAFBPO.

The importance of obedience Full transl. of op/col. by Roman Revueltas, whose previous column appeared in the M3 Report of 10/28/09.
People throw out garbage. That means, we have to change the people. Imagine a country of very civilized people: people who dont park their car in the middle of a cross street; people who take their turn in line; people who respect; people who do as they say; people who obey. Well, that country, of people who know how to behave, would be much more livable than another, for instance, where people do whatever they feel like doing without any consideration toward their fellow man.
Last week I was walking down the street and a fellow who was walking ahead of me stopped, picked up a plastic bottle dumped on the sidewalk and went into a store to put it in a waste bin. I waited for him to come out and congratulated him. I later thought that this is the way that all of us Mexicans ought to be. I ask you, then, to imagine a territory populated by orderly and reliable persons: almost paradise.
People usually follow rules for fear of punishment. This explains the colossal growth of criminality in Mexico due to the scandalous lack of punishment for the criminals: if you murder and nothing happens to you, well then, you kill again and you go on kidnapping. But, its not a matter of bringing up the death penalty scarecrow; its an issue of applying the laws, and nothing more. The great question is why is it that millions of citizens exist here who want to commit all sorts of infractions: throwing out garbage is a small transgression; ignoring a traffic light is a minor crime; assassinating a kidnapped child is a monstrosity perpetrated by a beast . Nevertheless, the common denominator of disobedience is present in all cases.
The more highly evolved individuals do not abstain from committing a crime for fear of jail but due to a clear conscience of what is right and what is wrong. Their personality has been structured based on moral values. That is precisely where our failure is as a society: Mexico is a jungle dominated by disobedient, quick tempered and irresponsible individuals, Calderon cannot change this. We change it ourselves.
My local police department has been actively putting “Immigration holds” on those in custody. The names of those in custody has never been secret, its public information.
Its a PDF, changed daily.
Does this mean those will immigration holds names will be kept off the list??
Somebody high deserves a waterboarding for this.
To put this in context, the name and charges of any citizen arrested is automatically public.
Petition to Congress Protesting Illegal Alien Amnesty Guest Worker Legislation and U.S. Social Security Totalization With Mexico
We, The Undersigned, urge that you do everything possible to STOP both illegal alien Amnesty guest worker legislation and the U.S. Social Security Totalization Agreement with Mexico.
Both of these would allow illegal immigrants, mostly from Mexico, to gain legal status and access to Social Security benefits. Worse, under both, these persons would be able to claim benefits for their relatives, children and other dependents, and our government has NO IDEA of the cost!
Given the problems already facing Social Security, ANY new outlays will only speed up the day when benefits will be cut and taxed. You MUST stop these two outrageous attacks on Social Security.
Join the 43096 people who have signed this petition.
Mexican immigrants who illegally worked in the United States would have a stronger claim to U.S. Social Security benefits under a totalization agreement with Mexico than what U.S. citizens enjoy. This disturbing finding is from a new legal analysis performed for The Senior Citizens League (TSCL) of the pending U.S.- Mexico Totalization Agreement.
The pending totalization agreement has been signed by both the Mexican and U.S. Social Security Administrations, but has not yet been sent to Congress for approval. It provides Mexican beneficiaries with a contractual promise made between the government of the United States and the government of Mexico, the legal analysis says.
Despite a 2004 law that prohibits the payment of Social Security benefits to illegal immigrants, a non-citizen may receive benefits, including benefits based on illegal work, if he or she meets one of the exceptions to the law. One of those exceptions applies to individuals who are residents of a country with which the United States has a totalization agreement. Under the agreement it appears that all illegal Mexican workers would have to do is to return to Mexico and file a claim for benefits.
If you check page 6 of that PDF you will see that the local cops here believe in the “charge the minor with everything and learn’em the hard way” school. This seems to happen with 17 year olds a LOT.
They charged this one with several counts of tobacco posession by a minor, abusive language and ATTEMPTED trespassing. Probably tried to run from the cop and didn’t get pass the sidewalk, lol.
Page 8 has an immigration hold on a guy named Milton Guzman-Florez
got beat up in Mexico and America!
