Posted on 05/31/2014 2:12:38 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
"We have to accept the fact that we have 11.5 million undocumented immigrants in this country," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. "We have to deal with that. I don't think we should allow them to exist in a state of legal ambiguity or in a dark hole."
Johnson noted that some states now issue drivers' licenses to undocumented immigrants, and he also mentioned that they can practice law in California. "So they're not going away. They're not going to self-deport. I would rather see us reckon with this population than continue in the state of legal ambiguity we're in right now."
"There is no legal ambiguity," Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) told Johnson.
"These 11.4 million...they're not here in a lawful status, correct?" Collins asked.
"For the most part, that's correct," Johnson responded.
"No, no, are they here in a lawful status or not?" Collins pressed. "You can't have it both ways. If they're here in a legal status, then they're not undocumented...they're here legally, if they have some form of legal status."
Collins said there's nothing legally ambiguous about people who are undocumented and "not here properly. That's not a legal ambiguity," he insisted.
"I just don't think it's being very honest with the committee to say that there's legal ambiguity here. If there were, this would be a whole different discussion," Collins told Johnson.
But Johnson disagreed: "Sir, there is legal ambiguity in that they are here undocumented, but there are states that permit them to have driver's licenses. I consider that an ambiguous legal state. And we have to fix it. The system is broken. We're not going to deport 11-and-a-half million undocumented immigrants in this country. You and I both know that."
Johnson said he would "rather deal with this population, encourage them to be held accountable, encourage them to pay taxes, get on the books and get on an earned path to citizenship so that they go through the necessary background checks, they're in a position where they can work legally, and we reckon with this problem."
Collins asked Johnson if he would be willing to identify "any criminal alien released in Georgia since 2012 so I can provide appropriate oversight on behalf of the good citizens of my district."
"I believe we're in a position to do that, and I will do that, yes sir," Johnson said.
I miss the rule of law.
I don’t see the #YesAllWomen tweets arguing that we will always have rape and violence against women (even though we will) so we should tolerate and even celebrate those crimes. It makes no more sense to argue that we will always have criminals who enter our country illegally, so we should tolerate and even celebrate them.
Illegals who have driver’s licenses just make it easier to find those who have violated our laws. I’m okay with changing immigration law for legal immigrants (in fact, I support making legal immigration for desirable, law-abiding immigrants easier), but I’m not okay with rewarding criminals who entered our country illegally.
To be blunt, this is now the rule of melanin..
Take away their driver’s license.
Headlines nowadays... so weird.
Ambiguity? What’s ambiguous about that they’re here illegally?
> We’re not going to deport 11-and-a-half million undocumented immigrants in this country.
What? Take their DNA and put a chip in them: legal status is undesirable.
It has been done before during the depression. They are full of it.
If this govt jerk had any sense whatsoever, he'd know we are being invaded by pressure groups who are here to weaken US ntl security. These border-violators are the advancing force of the armed insurgency, salivating to takeover the American SW.....and they plan to do it on our dime.
============================================== Illegals are notorious for using stolen SS nos and fake ID's.
We need to determine the fraudulent names and multiple identities of those:
<><> fraudulently pocketing welfare, food stamps, EITC refunds, SSI, free medical care, Section 8 housing, UI, Workmen's comp,
<><> falsely getting hefty SS checks by claiming "asylum"
<><> falsifying apps to get fraudulent sub-prime mortgages,
<><> making false claims on IRS forms in order to get multiple EITC refunds?
<><> falsely using illegal driver's licenses?
<><> wire-transferring money back to Mexico; the Third World,
<><> opening offshore accounts under multiple identities,
<><> how many are paid agents of foreign governments.
Cashing multiple govt checks under several identities is generally used in these categories:
UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp,
TANF (temporary assistance to needy families),
WICS (food assistance),
subsidized Section 8 shelter,
Utility Assistance subsidies,
School breakfasts/lunches/snacks subsidies,
$5000 a year EITC checks per identity.
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 the insurgency, terrorism, benefitting cronies, relatives, etc........

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.
The FBI, SEC and IRS should examine every document filed.
Every official tax-exempt document filed by La Raza, the CHC and latino-centric hyphenated groups needs to be scrutinized in conjunction w/ possible connections to govt fraud, corruption, money laundering and tax evasion, financing the insurgency, armed conquest of the SW takeover. Perjury and forgery, need to be considered.

MORE HERE It's time to mobilize the Bank Secrecy Act----to follow the paper trail of La Raza and the Hispanic Caucus govt grant disbursements, and determine how govt monies changes hands.
Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of government insiders ability to collude in sub rosa deals and who might be personally profiting.
<><> L/E needs to examine multiple bank accounts.
<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer govt funds from one account to another, and/or wire-transferred to the Third World;
<><> To cover their tracks, fake govt invoices might be created to show that govt money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate govt purposes.
<><> Financial schemes scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from financial sources that actually covered the transfer of govt funds for insiders' personal use and/or for redistribution schemes.
NOTE WELL Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering and other financial crimes. The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion or other unlawful activities, the special agent in charge for Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, explained.
Shady banking transactions could be prosecuted under the (1) Bank Secrecy ACT, (2) RICO, and, (3) the Hobbs Act.

<><> Bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC accounts, to money launder and to operate personal ventures---or to finance campaign activities (and/or other redistribution schemes favored by the WH).
Tax fraud may also be a factor; facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intra-bank transfers from DHS accounts into personal accounts, campaign accounts, or into redistribution schemes.
<><> A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support and luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel....... and gifts from luxury outlets for wives and mistresses (and campaign activities, or other progressive redistribution schemes).
Taxpayers demand the Bank Secrecy Act be used to prosecute govt fraud, pronto.

Johnson is under govt contract, being paid to protect the American people.
If just one more American is killed, Johnson should be advised, he will be sued for breach of contract.
There was no ambiguity in the feds announcing Clive Bundy as a terrorist.
I’m so glad our republican Senators asked the hard questions during the confirmation hearings. /Dripping
Simply use e-Verify for jobs and social benefits. Eliminate the fraudulent hiring promoted by the Chamber of Commerce and the other government freebies and they will go home. Why is that so difficult to understand?
Legal Ambiguity my ass.If they don’t have a U.S. Birth certificate or a green card send their butts home.Get them the hell out of the country.
If laws cannot and will not be enforced on illegal aliens,they should not be enforced on the American people.
Another thing the Government should Stop inviting more of these Parasites by subsidizing their entry here.
11.5 million my patootie.
How many Americans are prepared to learn that the number of illegal intruders is much closer to 55 million?
Once they hand over ‘amnesty’, they cannot draw it back when they find out the numbers have been vastly understated.
While it pi$$e$ me off, I have to agree that there is legal ambiguity. Perry hit that nail on the head a while back. When those who are supposed to be enforcing the laws give tacit approval to certain crimes, and even abet those committing the crimes, you have established a legal ambiguity and done some serious erosion to the rule of law.
