  • DHS Knew Illegal Aliens Falsely Claimed “Credible Fear” to Stay in U.S.

    Judicial Watch ^ | November 23, 2015
    The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim "credible fear" to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through...

    The son of a New York mob boss has given Islamic State a stark warning, saying if they are planning any attacks in New York, they will have to contend with the Sicilian mafia. The notorious crime syndicate say they want to do their bit to protect locals. Giovanni Gambino, the son of a key figure in the Gambino mob organization, says the mafia is in a much better position than security bodies, such as the FBI or Homeland Security, to give New Yorkers the protection they need. “They often act too late, or fail to see a complete picture...

    The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to reinstate President Obama's deportation amnestyFriday, filing papers appealing a federal appeals court's decision blocking the amnesty exactly a year after the program was first announced. Administration officials hope to get the case on the high court's calendar for this term, which ends in June. Otherwise the case would have to wait to be heard until October 2016, at the earliest, which would mean a decision likely wouldn't come until after Mr. Obama leaves office and a new president has a chance to undo his moves. Mr. Obama is desperate to try to...

    At least three dozen people in the United States suspected of ties to the Islamic State were under heavy electronic or physical surveillance even before the Paris attacks, senior American officials say. But unlike the attackers in France, the officials say, the majority of those under investigation here never traveled to Syria to fight alongside the Islamic State or receive training from it. In many ways, the officials say, that makes the American investigations even harder. Those under investigation typically have little terrorism expertise or support from a cell, which makes thwarting an Islamic State-inspired attack in the United States...

My questions to the Mayor went as follows: October 13, 2015 Dear Mayor Whaley, I recently discovered that you signed an open letter to President Obama, asking to increase the number of refugees for "resettlement."

    Thousands of people on the national Terrorist Watch List are still legally allowed to buy guns - and have been doing just that, according to a new report. The Government Accountability Office says that more than 2,000 suspected terrorists have managed to buy guns in the U.S. from 2004 to 2014. That makes an overwhelming 91 percent of those on the list who were not blocked from purchasing a firearm. So, how did that happen? Gun rights are a "congressional situation," said Stewart Verdery, former Assistant Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, said on "The Real Story" today....

    Come 2016, your state driver’s license may not be enough to get you on a commercial flight. On Oct. 10, the Department of Homeland Security began enforcing the last phase of the Real ID Act, which establishes minimum security standards for states and United States territories when issuing identification, primarily driver’s licenses; and prohibits certain government facilities and — most relevant to travelers — the Transportation Security Administration from accepting them as proof of identification if they were issued by a noncompliant state.

The Islamist terror threat to the U.S. is surging and the situation is getting steadily worse, concludes a new report by the House Homeland Security Committee. Terror Threat Snapshot, prepared by the Majority staff, said the increased threat is largely due to radicalization and recruitment by the Islamic State. Key takeaways about the U.S. from the report include: To date in 2015, there have been more U.S.-based jihadist terror cases than in any (full) year since...

When the Obama administration initiated its unilateral policy of prosecutorial discretion, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. as long they have not yet been convicted of a serious felony crime, they found attorney Vroom too slow in authorizing the release of illegal aliens who had committed crimes in the U.S. but did not yet meet the administrations high threshold for seeking deportation of such undocumented aliens. U.S. immigration law, as enacted by Congress pursuant to the Constitution, provides that any...

    In yet another depiction of the nations flawed immigration policies, the Obama administration is extending a humanitarian measure designed to temporarily shield illegal immigrants from deportation during emergencies for the fifth time in five years. Its officially known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) but should be renamed permanentor at least long-termprotected status. It involves tens of thousands of Haitians, who were originally granted TPS after an earthquake devastated the poverty-stricken Caribbean island in 2010. Then Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the benefit would last only 18 months and be limited to Haitian nationals who were in the United States...

    Readers may be tempted to respond Join the club, but this is — in the words of the Obama administration’s most eloquent figure, a big effin’ deal. The White House has demanded more authority and jurisdiction over private networks as part of its push to improve cybersecurity in the US, even while it has botched its own network security at OPM, the Pentagon, and even the State Department under both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. The Department of Homeland Security is tasked with auditing the security of federal government networks, but no one at State ever told DHS about...

    The State Department does not appear to have submitted legally required information regarding Hillary Clinton's secret computer server to the Department of Homeland Security during her term as secretary, FoxNews.com has learned. All federal government agencies are mandated to submit a list of systems, vulnerabilities and configuration issues to DHS every 30 days. The department then performs a "cyberscope audit" to ensure security, a responsibility the agency has had since 2010. FoxNews.com learned of the lapse as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request submitted June 11. It is not clear if State Department officials in charge of...

    An official timeline of the Office of Personnel Management breach obtained by FCW pinpoints the hackers' calibrated extraction of data and the government's step-by-step response. It illuminates a sequence of events that lawmakers have struggled to pin down in public hearings with Obama administration officials. The timeline makes clear that the heist of data on 22 million current and former federal employees was one sustained assault rather than two separate intrusions to steal background investigation data and personnel records. The document, which bears the seals of OPM and the Department of Homeland Security, is dated July 14 and was prepared...

    The DHS has been releasing illegal immigrants with violent criminal records back into local U.S. communities, where they have often gone on to commit violent crimes against American citizens, according to new disclosures by a leading lawmaker and local law enforcement agencies. Rep. Matt Salmon (R., Ariz.) and law enforcement officials petitioned the Obama administration to end a policy that enables illegal immigrants with criminal records to be released back into the US. Arizona law enforcement officials announced on Tuesday that three illegal aliens with violent criminal records had been released by DHS and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) back...

    Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ)slammed the Department of Homeland Security Wednesday for releasing three violent criminal aliens into Arizona. Our Department of Homeland Security needs to focus more on securing our homeland, not on cornering the market as a transportation option for illegal aliens in the United States, Salmon said. Americans need protection from violent criminals and an explanation for why DHS has been so miserably failing at their primary task, he added. This week Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed it had released three violent criminal immigrants into Arizona because if had no legal basis to continue to hold them.

    One of the men charged in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry pleaded guilty to one count of murder, Monday morning. Once a potential candidate for the death penalty after the murder of the agent, the drawn up plea deal now states that the U.S. and the defendant will ask for 360 months imprisonment, with credit for time served since his arrest in October 2012. The Justice Department indicted Rosario Rafael Burboa Alvarez last summer in connection with the killing. Alvarez was identified as the recruiter for the rip-off crew that ran into Terry's elite BORTAC unit...

    The country saw another surge of illegal immigrant families crossing the border in July, a top Homeland Security official told a federal court late Thursday as the administration begged a judge not to forbid detention of new migrant mothers and children. Deputy Border Patrol Chief Ronald Vitiello said the number of illegal immigrant families captured at the border rose in July, bucking a trend and worrying officials who had been expecting the number of families to drop as the heat increases in late summer, just as the number of unaccompanied minors does. Even worse, the administration fears things may get...

    A triple homicide in Florida is suspected to be a Wiccan ritual killing related to the blue moon, police said Tuesday. The three victims, all from the same family, were found after a welfare check on Friday, July 31, said Escambia County Sheriffs Office spokesman Sgt. Andrew Hobbes. It appears that this might be connected to some type of Wiccan ritual killing and possibly tied to the blue moon, Hobbes told NBC News. A blue moon is what its called when there are two full moons in the same calendar month. Voncile Smith, 77, and her two sons, Richard, 49,...
