Skip to comments.Another ‘Draft’ Memo on How to Stop Enforcing Immigration Laws
Posted on 08/19/2010 9:54:06 AM PDT by roses of sharon
In the wake of last months DHS memo on how to create a de facto amnesty without congressional consent comes a similar draft proposal instructing local police to stop enforcing immigration laws. As reported by my colleague Jessica Vaughan, According to a draft policy document now being circulated among a limited group of stakeholders, ICE chief John Morton intends to prohibit not only his officers, but also local officers with 287(g)immigration authority, from busting illegal aliens who are discovered as a result of traffic violations. So that means well go back to the situation where illegal aliens can drive illegally with impunity, like the Ft. Dix plotters, who were stopped 75 times by local police for traffic violations and never turned over to immigration.
Feel safer yet?
ICE Chief Morton to Field: See No Illegal Aliens
Check this out. very sad. 3 dui counts and HPD releases the guy that hoped the next flight to Qatar.Sanctuary City Cops claim he was part owner of a Business, didn’t even get his Passport.
During the reign of Bill “Aw Shucks” White, eh?
I wouldn't be surprised to find that this guy is an axe murder and someday we'll find his wife, kids and several other relatives chopped to pieces in his basement.
Man just can't be of sound mind and come up with this one.
Malfeasance n. intentionally doing something either legally or morally wrong which one had no right to do. It always involves dishonesty, illegality, or knowingly exceeding authority for improper reasons.
One step closer to the brink.
We have a “new” Dum Mayor that has not ended the Sanc. City thing.
Morton is a traitorous creep. He needs fired.
So that means well go back to where illegals can drive illegally with impunity, like the Ft. Dix plotters, who were stopped 75 times by local police for traffic violations and never turned over to immigration.
But one way or another out they WILL go. The Camel's Back is full of straw now. We The People can't take much more of their crap. One more 'straw' may do it.
Dem Cong Pete Stark has become a YouTube sensation in past weeks. When confronted by tough questions from his constituents resorted to sarcasm and condescension. His pompous manner is utterly revolting to watch, but it was something he said at a Town Hall meeting in Wayward CA on 7/24/10 that was nothing short of frightening.
Mr. Stark was quoted as saying that healthcare is now a right rather than a privilege which prompted a woman at the meeting to bring up the following question. 'If the government can force healthcare upon the masses, and make it compulsory for physicians to treat any and all patients, then what cant they do?' The woman goes so far as to say that it infringes upon the 13th amendment, which banned slavery, because the government is in essence enslaving the doctor to treat whomever they tell him to. She proceeds to ask if this legislation (healthcare) is constitutional, then what limitations are there on the Federal Governments ability to tell us how to run our private lives?
One would expect Mr. Stark to dodge the question with some crafty politically correct answer. However, his response was quite the opposite. Yes, the Federal Government can do most anything in this country.......more at thewoodwardreport.com
It’s all part of Obama’s “Don’t ask, don’t deport”
Just like after the Revolution there were still Tories loyal to King George who didn't 'get it' that their side lost. They were all dealt with, in due course.
Yhey all belong in prison.
It looks like we see a slow and deliberate fundamental transformation taking place right before our eyes by this administration as it subverts the law and its task of enforcement by reinterpreting its mission and changing policies to fit its own goals. Plainly put, this administration seeks to keep a certain demographic of illegal aliens, useful idiots beholden to them, in the country as long as possible.
Case in point: ICE: Detention and Policy Reforms
Detention ReformOne obvious question is -where is the media reporting on this?Last year, ICE detained more than 300,000 aliens. Recognizing that the purpose of immigration detention is not punitive and the importance of providing our detainees with quality care, ICE is engaged in a broad detention reform effort. This includes creating a civil detention system that reduces transfers, maximizes access to counsel, visitation, and recreation, improves conditions of confinement, and ensures quality medical, mental health, and dental care. ICE already has taken concrete steps to improve the immigration detention system and is engaged in a serious and sustained effort that will result in additional reforms and actions in the near future.
Policy ReformICE has a broad mandate that includes protecting and securing the borders through immigration enforcement at the border, ports of entry, and inside the United States. Finite resources require ICE to prioritize our enforcement efforts to best protect the security of our communities and the integrity of the immigration system. This includes focusing on criminal aliens, fugitives, and recent border violators. To ensure our practice aligns with these broad priorities, ICE has recently issued a number of policies including one intended to reduce the risk that we place United States citizens in proceedings or detention, a policy to refocus fugitive operations, and a new memorandum of agreement in an effort to ensure the 287(g) program aligns with ICE priorities. These and other key reforms promote the smart and effective enforcement of immigration laws. Additional policy reforms are coming soon.
Request for Public Comment on Immigration Detainer Policy
ICE has drafted an immigration detainer policy to engage all interested stakeholders and solicit a broad range of views and comments. This is not a final policy and is disseminated solely to collect feedback. ICE is interested in a concrete assessment of how this draft policy, if issued and implemented, would affect the agency's law enforcement partners, the operation of the criminal justice system, communities and individuals. Please respond with your comments to ICEDetainerComments@dhs.gov by Thursday, September 30, 2010.
Another obvious question: Is it not counter intuitive and hypocritical to pursue a policy that on the one hand purports, "the purpose of immigration detention is not punitive"; YET, on the other hand as evidenced, ICE is more and more focusing on ONLY detaining convicted criminals -this concept further promoted in the latest "Draft Immigration Detainer Policy" which will so much as command local law enforcement agencies to release all illegal aliens discovered during traffic stops UNLESS they are convicted of felonies or demonstrate an immediate danger.
What is the purpose of immigration detention that is supposedly not punitive yet is solely premised upon a criminal conviction and NOT simply upon illegal status?
Does 2 + 2 = 5 now? Again -where is the media on this?
