Obama Calls for Immigration Enforcement Review
Politico ^ | Thursday, March 13, 2014 | Seung Min Kim and Reid J. Epstein with John Bresnahan

Posted on 03/13/2014 6:01:21 PM PDT by kristinn

President Barack Obama has asked for a review of the administration’s enforcement policies for immigration laws to see if it can be done “more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said Thursday.

The announcement came after Obama met Thursday evening with three leading members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus amid a furor in the Latino and immigration-rights community over the number of deportations of undocumented immigrants (sic: illegal aliens) under his administration.

The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system,” the White House said in a readout of the meeting.

Obama asked Jeh Johnson, the Department of Homeland Security, to conduct the review, the White House said. Democratic Reps. Xavier Becerra of California, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and Rubén Hinojosa of Texas attended the Thursday meeting at the White House.

The president also told the three House Democrats of his “strong desire to work together” to pressure Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

The visit came as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which has played a key role on setting immigration policy for House Democrats, has been wrestling with a resolution aimed at Obama on deportations that would take a sharper line against the administration.

Key lawmakers and immigration reform advocates, highly skeptical that the GOP-led House will take up legislation this year, have upped pressure on the Obama administration to use executive action to suspend deportations they view as unnecessary.

Obama and his aides had repeatedly said that is not an option. Still, advocates have been hopeful that Obama will issue a directive similar to one he announced in spring 2012, which deferred deportations for hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants (sic_ illegal aliens)

Too bad for you, illegal alien, DON'T BREAK OUR LAWS. Now leave.

“President Barack Obama has asked for a review of the administration’s enforcement policies for immigration laws to see if it can be done “more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said Thursday.”

IMO, it is inhumane to fail to maintain the sovereignty of a nation’s borders. Obama’s responsibility is to protect US citizens, not people blatantly disregarding our border and our law.

Smoke and mirrors: “Deportations” now includes illegals turned around at the border, whereas it meant those sent back from inside the country before the Liar-in-Chief.

Actual deportations from within country are sharply down.

The frogs in the water of rising temperature won’t know the difference, and the spineless GOP arm of the global cabal won’t expose this ruse either.

Fix is in, senor.

Here you see Phila. Lawmakers See Good News In Nutter’s Plan To End ‘ICE Holds’...Michael Resnick, Philadelphia’s director of public safety (top photo), says the only exceptions will be where an individual is convicted of a serious felony.
“The crimes we’re talking about are murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping, human trafficking, rape, robbery, and where ICE has separately obtained a warrant for the individual,” Resnick told the councilmembers.

BUT Advocates say they want an end to all ICE holds, which they say lead to distrust between immigrants and police and break up otherwise law-abiding families...Advocates want murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping, human trafficking, rape, robbery serious dangerous criminals illegals to never have any ice holds nor should they be deported.This is their mindset that serious dangerous criminals being turned over to ice would lead to distrust between immigrants and police..Cause none of them are law-abiding families..This why illegals from all backgrounds are here and millions more shall come.Obama is weak on illegals and supporters support all illegals dangerous or non dangerous.http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2014/03/12/phila-lawmakers-see-good-news-in-nutters-plan-to-end-ice-holds/

Speaker John Boehner is shirking his Constitutional Duty by not issuing Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama.

Removal from Office by the US Senate can ONLY be accomplished AFTER a perp. is Impeached by the US House.

The House is the Police, and the Senate is the Judge and Jury.

First the House must Impeach the POS.

Then the Senate determines if the Impeached POS should be removed from office.

Most FReepers fall in the all or nothing camp and only want a clear path to removal.

Our Constitution makes it very clear: Impeach first by the House, and then have the Senate decide on Removal.

The objective is to punish all those who violate their sacred oaths to defend the US Constitution.

A bi-weekly Impeachment of B. Hussein Obama would be needed to punish him for all of his Constitutional violations over the last 5 years, but I will be satisfied with just one Impeachment.

Obama’s Removal from Office by the US Senate would be good for America, but Reid’s Senate has not yet demonstrated any interest in what is good for America.

Since the RINOs have control of the US House of Representatives in 2014, 2014 is the last year that we can be certain that Obama could be Impeached.

The RINOs assume that they will maintain control of the US House, but their usual desire to lose to Democrats is so strong, that their assumption may not be a valid one.

Impeach B. Hussein Soetoro-Obama in 2014, PERIOD.

Not compassionate also that all the criminals in prisons are separated from their families and also many families of criminals suffer economic hardship due to their “bread winner” being in prison.

Only compassionate to empty all the prisons (and give them the vote too, since crooks naturally find a welcoming home in the Dem Party.

The sad thing is that if the GOP were not controlled by corporations, billionaires and neocons and simply made deporting illegals on contact with the gov’t a platform plank, they would win elections in a landslide.

...to see if it can be done “more humanely within the confines of the law,” the White House said Thursday.

Exactly what does "within the confines of the law" mean when uttered by a left-wing commie who has no respect for the law?

Vote-crazed Obama has done everything to suckup for latino votes except fellate a latino on the Capitol steps. Looks like he was interviewing likely subjects when met Thursday evening with three members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus ----Reps. Xavier Becerra (Dim-Cali), Luis Gutierrez (Dim-Ill), and Rubén Hinojosa (Dim--Texas).

====================================================

MARCHING ORDERS FROM THE THIRD WORLD Ratcheting up the undermining of US national security in collusion w/ the Congressional Hispanic Caucus is a hot topic in the Obama WH.

It's open season to conduct dirty deeds in the US. The porous Mexican border is the staging area for global terrorists, the criminal latino underworld, Third World lowlifes, drug cartels, savage latino gangs, and the like..... they all gather at the Mexican border (w/ the Mexicn govt's blessing) to crossover into the US.

Viscious Mexican gangs and drug cartels are said to operate freely across the border in Austin---the Texas state capital---right under the noses of the pols.

Need we be reminded ---- these Third World parasites are gorging at the public teat.

$20 billion goes to Mexico from falsified EITC refunds ......our tax dollars fianance luxury condos across the border.

The Dominican Republic is the paradigm parasite---scoffing up $1 billion per year their citizens here manage to steal. Lots of 'em get EBT cards.... then ship the food to the DR where their parasite relatives ell it on the street.

AMERICANS ARE FUNDING THIS HATE-AMERICA ORGANIZATION W/ A STATED GOAL TO TAKEBACK THE SW: In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to La Raza chartered indoctrination centers in the form of US Dept of Education grants.

LA RAZA schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murder and violence in US public schools, the federally-funded La Raza operates 100 charter schools across America. =================================================

LA RAZA GORGES AT THE PUBLIC TEAT

<><> The Senate amnesty bill contains a provision to handover $100 million tax dollars (renewable every year) to subsidize La Raza's hate-filled agenda.

<><> the Congressuial Hispanic caucuss has been quiet about his role in financing, and, earmarking the blood-thirsty America-hating La Raza. race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-valled mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the frgradayiio pg mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......US taxpayers were saddled w/ billions in bailouts which decimatied the US economy.

<><> La Raza aided and abetted latinos falsifying bank documents, resulting in risky loans over the last decade; they forced the lending industry’s ruinous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies.

<><> La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."

==================================================

Amnesty is a Third World gravy train---US taxpayers are forced to finance pressure groups---all lined up w/ their hands out for zillions in "foreign aid."

LYING IN WAIT FOR OUR TAX DOLLARS---THESE IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES CURRENTLY HAVE ORGANIZED PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside)l Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.

==============================================

MICHELE MALKIN REPORTED that the Obama White House/State Dept war spending bill sneaks in $1.4 billion for the “Merida Initiative”.......a stimulus/national security package for Mexico.

The close-mouthed Congressuial Hispanic caucus has been much too secretive about its role in financing, and, using Congressional earmarks to finance the blood-thirsty America-hating La Raza.

FACTOID race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-called "mortgage counseling."

FACTOID La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the industry to degrade mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......saddling US taxpayers w/ billions in bailouts which decimatied the US economy.

FACTOID La Raza collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."

================================================

Did the Hispanic Cauvus collude w/ La Raza to aid and abet latinos falsifying bank documents, resulting in risky loans over the last decade, forcing the lending industry’s ruinous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies. Do they have proof of "mortgage counseling"?

=================================================

Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus using government offices for illegal purposes. Taxpayers demand documents held by the Hispanic Caucus be scrutinized for possible falsification.

Falsifying Government Documents involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Personal checks
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates

Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document

A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party. /

Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility

Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.

Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus using government offices for illegal purposes.

SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE SCAMS--MASSIVE MORTGAGE FRAUD ON CAPITOL HILL:

The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, F/M, lenders, banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers consider to be unqualified Latinos.

"HOGAR" colluded w/ Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers. Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.

HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."

HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals, citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.

Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:

(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;

(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;

(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;

(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,

(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.

HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:

<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.

<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,

<><> The most shocking example of bribery well-substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.

The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.

<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.

<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.

The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.

The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage brokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.

The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.

L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.

BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.

This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.
