    Editor's Note: The following post has been slightly adapted from its original publication at Liberty Unyielding. Aliens are foreigners, not citizens, as one can see from dictionary definitions. So they do not include the typical immigrant, who is a naturalized citizen. It was thus inaccurate for The Washington Post’s Jenna Portnoy to write a story last Thursday claiming that the House of Representatives had passed a bill allowing “immigrants” to be deported if they are criminal gang members, when in fact the bill was aimed at “aliens.” (“Bill lets officials deport immigrants for gang ties,” Sept. 15, pp. B1 &...

    Justin Amash has something of a record of voting for illegal aliens and against the Republican base. But this is about MS 13 and other gangs. Is he really that blind, tone deaf, and stupid?

    Three Portland police supervisors announced Friday that the Portland Police Bureau would halt its more than two-decade practice of designating gang members on Oct. 15. Portland police next month will end their more than 20-year-old practice of designating people as gang members or gang associates in response to strong community concerns about the labels that have disproportionately affected minorities. The Police Bureau recognizes that the gang designations have led to "unintended consequences'' and served as lifelong barriers for those who have shunned the gang lifestyle and tried to get jobs, said Acting Tactical Operations Capt. Andy Shearer.

    Sacramento approves $1.5 million to tackle gun violence 9/01/17 | by Jennifer Cruz The city of Sacramento is tackling gang violence. Critics claim the council just voted unanimously to pay folks not to commit crimes. So what's the deal? We spoke with the Director of the Mayor's Gang Prevention and Intervention Task Force back in March. We asked just how big a deal is gang violence here in Sacramento? It's a part of an 18-month program where those involved get job-training and mentoring. If they complete six months successfully, they could also receive up to $1,000 per month for nine...

    Mayor of Berkeley Jesse Arreguin on Monday said it is time to confront the violent extremism on the left by treating black-clad Antifa protesters as a gang. A large number of masked Antifa activists were seen jumping the barriers at a largely peaceful demonstration in Berkeleys Martin Luther King Civic Center Park on Sunday. Some began attacking Trump supporters at the rally. I think we should classify them as a gang, said Arreguin. They come dressed in uniforms. They have weapons, almost like a militia and I think we need to think about that in terms of our law enforcement...

  • 200,000 deportation cases quietly 'closed' under Obama

    Washington Examiner ^ | August 28, 2017 | by Paul Bedard
    During the Obama era up to 200,000 deportation cases were "administratively closed" without action, a move that left tens of thousands of illegal immigrants free to roam America, sometimes indefinitely, according to a new report. When added to those cases still pending court action, it brings the backlog of cases to about 800,000, far more than previously known. In the report for the Center for Immigration Studies, former immigration judge Andrew R. Arthur said that there are some 100,000 cases that were closed, but told Secrets that it could be as high as 200,000. "My back-of-the-envelope calculations suggest at least...

    Its called the Central American Minors Parole, or CAM. It was in response in 2014 to a wave of children fleeing gang violence in Central America and seeking asylum in the U.S. The Obama administration gave them a two-year reprieve from deportation to prepare their amnesty cases, as long as they had at least one parent living in the U.S. legally. Under the direction of the Trump administration, Homeland Security abruptly canceled the program last Wednesday. That means almost 3,000 children between the ages of 11 and 17 who were admitted under CAM are now subject to deportation. Opponents of...
