Immigration Slams Illinois County That Let 1,000 Criminals Aliens Into the Streets Last Year

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement slammed Cook County, Illinois, for releasing more than 1,000 criminal illegals back onto the streets



U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement slammed Cook County, Illinois, for releasing more than 1,000 criminal illegals back onto the streets in 2019 instead of sending them to federal authorities to be deported.

Thanks to Cook County’s sanctuary county rules, criminal illegals are routinely released without any charges.

ICE named Cook County — the locale for the City of Chicago — as one of the country’s least safe areas because it has allowed so many actual criminals out onto the streets.

In its press release, ICE noted that Cook County has put its citizens at risk by refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities. According to ICE, Cook County repeatedly rejected or ignored immigration detainers placed on criminal aliens.

By criminal aliens, they mean illegal aliens who have been charged and convicted of serious crime, and not just for breaking immigration laws.

“The most concerning issue about working in an area that refuses to cooperate with ICE is not only that we do not know which criminal aliens are being released from custody, but the public doesn’t know either,” said Henry Lucero, ICE’s acting deputy executive associate director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

“Because ICE does not have access to standard Illinois law enforcement databases, it’s difficult to accurately account for all the aliens who have been arrested, released and committed additional crimes. However, with the limited information ICE can verify, we know that police resources are being wasted, more people are being victimized, and it’s a matter of time until something more significant happens.”

ICE added that “when law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.”

Immigration detainers are issued by ICE to law enforcement agencies telling cops to hold a particular criminal until immigration officials can pick them up to schedule them for deportation.

In its press release, ICE pointed out that Cook County released criminals guilty of murder, battery, and drug dealing.

Cook County also came under fire from the Justice Department in 2017, when former Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatened to cut federal funding due to their “sanctuary” immigration policies.

Chinese National Found Illegally Entering U.S. Carrying $28K in Gold Bars

A Chinese national has been nabbed sneaking into the U.S. through Canada carrying $28,500 in gold bars and $10,000 in cash.



A Chinese national has been nabbed attempting to sneak into the U.S. through Canada carrying $28,500 in gold bars and $10,000 in cash.

The woman was arrested on Tuesday by Border Patrol agents near Amity, Maine, the agency said in a statement.

The 36-year-old woman admitted being an illegal from China.

Officers were able to track the woman’s progress across the border by following her footprints in the dirt. Investigators said the tracks matched unique features in her shoes.

The woman told investigators that she had been in Canada legally on a student visa but decided to sneak into the U.S.A. without authorization.

She does not appear to have explained where she got all the cash and the 14.2 ounces of gold.

Federal officials also offered no speculation on where the cash came from and what the woman intended to do with it.

Could the money have been targeted for use for secret anti-American activities? It’s anyone’s guess.

Federal officials sent the woman back to Canada after processing.

“The vigilance, service and integrity of our Border Patrol Agents who continue to apprehend those who are looking to circumvent customs and immigration laws, plays an important role in keeping our communities in Maine and throughout the United States safe,” said Houlton Station Patrol Agent in Charge Brent Conley.

Biden’s 2020 Dem. Platform Gives Amnesty to All Illegals Here and in EVERY Other Country!

Joe Biden’s Democrat Party platform gives free citizenship to every illegal alien already in the country and in other countries!



Joe Biden’s radical proposal for a Democrat Party platform for 2020 not only gives free citizenship to every illegal alien already in the country, it legalizes every single immigrant still in other countries!

In other words, Biden wants to make the everyone in the world a U.S. citizen eligible for U.S. welfare programs no matter who they are, where they are, what they’ve done or not done, and even if they aren’t in the U.S.A. at all.

This is the most radical proposal ever put forward as a party platform by one of America’s major parties!

This is utterly intolerable!

Per Breitbart News:

The document, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship to the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the nation and welcome hundreds of millions of the world’s migrants.

The proposed Democrat platform would expand asylum for migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, freeing them into the interior of the nation while they await their hearings. Gallup research from 2018 finds that nearly 160 million migrants around the world would move to the U.S. if given the opportunity — five million of which are located in Central America.

Naturally, the plan ends construction of the border security wall and calls for it to be torn down.

The plan also calls for:

  • Restarting DACA for young illegal aliens
  • Restraining DAPA for the illegal parents of DACA illegal aliens
  • Rescinding Trump’s “national emergency” at the border
  • Increasing refugee resettlement
  • Gives Obamacare to DACA illegal aliens
  • Forces Americans to subsidize welfare-dependent legal immigration
  • Expands the scandal-plagued U visa program
  • Restarts employment-based green card system

This plan is a sure way to put a permanent end to the United States of America and to bankrupt this country into ruination.

Of course, that is what Democrats want. They despise this country and want it destroyed.

President Trump Preparing New Exec. Order to Cancel Obama’s DACA for Illegals

President Trump is working to again try to dismantle Obama’s DACA for illegals program after advice from the high court on how to do it.



After the recent Supreme Court decision preventing President Trump’s last attempt to cancel Obama’s DACA sop to illegals, Trump is working to try again after advice from the high court on how to do it.

White House sources have told the media that the president and his staff are crafting a new Executive order to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program started by Barack Obama that gives amnesty to illegals brought into the country as children.

Last month, the Supreme Court threw out Trump’s previous EO canceling the Obama administration’s DACA program. However, in his opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts essentially signaled that if Trump more carefully crafted his next EO to eliminate DACA it might be acceptable to the nation’s highest court.

So, the administration appears to be working to take another pass at dumping DACA.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows recently told “Fox & Friends” that Trump would soon sign a new EO to end the program. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act,” he said.

Trump has made no bones about the fact that he wants to end DACA.

“As President of the United States, I am asking for a legal solution on DACA, not a political one, consistent with the rule of law,” he tweeted on June 18. “The Supreme Court is not willing to give us one, so now we have to start this process all over again.”

It seems likely that if the administration more carefully follows the Supreme Court’s direction, the lower courts will be unable to halt the end of the DACA program.

But what is really amazing is that the Supreme Court seems to be saying that it is practically impossible for one administration to rescind the Executive Orders of a previous president! The amazing thing is that EOs really do not have the force of law.

They are not laws passed by Congress, nor are they codified by the courts on the face of them. So, the point is, since EOs aren’t really laws, it should not be so hard for Trump to dump this practice?

Trump Pauses Immigration to Give Americans First Crack at Virus-Vacated Jobs

America first.



President Trump’s motives on immigration have always been fairly clear, and today, the Commander in Chief took a rather large and abrupt step toward fulfilling some of his campaign promises on the subject.

As the nation cautiously begins to eye the light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel, President Trump has announced a 60 day pause on immigration into the United States.  His hope seems to be that this will allow Americans to have the first crack at employment once the nation gets back up and running.

President Trump said Tuesday he will temporarily suspend immigration to the United States for at least 60 days in order to make sure Americans laid off during the coronavirus pandemic are “first in line” for new jobs.

Trump, who had tweeted late on Monday that he planned to sign an executive order halting immigration, said during his daily press briefing that the order would last 60 days. After that, Trump said the ban would be reevaluated after he looks at unemployment and economic figures.

“By pausing immigration we will help put unemployed Americans first in line for jobs,” Trump said. “We must first take of care of the American worker.”

He added: “It would be wrong and unjust for Americans laid off by the virus to be replaced with new immigrant labor flown in from abroad.”

And while this had liberals on Twitter raging on Tuesday afternoon, the announcement also enthralled the President’s base, who have been clamoring for stricter enforcement of American immigration laws for years.

President Trump To Suspend Immigration To The U.S. During Coronavirus




President Donald Trump has said he will sign an executive order to temporarily suspend all immigration to the US because of the coronavirus.

On Twitter, Trump cited “the attack from the invisible enemy,” as he calls the virus, and the need to protect the jobs of Americans, but did not give more detail.


President Donald Trump says he will “temporarily suspend immigration” to the United States while the Chinese coronavirus crisis continues to claim American lives.

On Monday evening, Trump said he will pause all immigration to the U.S. — a moratorium that has not been enacted in four decades — while at least 22 million Americans are unemployed due to mandatory business closures by state governments.

Trump’s upcoming executive order to pause immigration to the U.S. is widely supported by American voters. An Ipsos poll released this month found that nearly eight-in-ten Americans, or about 79 percent, want a full halt on immigration to the U.S.

Likewise, the latest Pew Research Center survey reveals that more than 80 percent of American adults call mass migration to the U.S. a “threat.”

For weeks, Breitbart News has chronicled the historical precedent for an immigration moratorium during times of national crisis. During the Great Depression, for instance, mass unemployment was eased by major cuts to legal immigration levels that stayed below 100,000 annual admissions for nearly 15 years from 1931 and 1945.

CBS News reports, according to sources, reports that the Trump administration has been working on the executive order for weeks:

It’s funny to watch the left cry about this. They want to shut everything down except the border and abortion clinics. Oh yeah, and they’re just giddy about letting criminals out of jail.

Trump Launches Court Campaign to Get Border Wall Completed

The Donald Trump administration is going to court to stop liberals from putting a crimp in his construction plans for new sections of the border wall.



The Donald Trump administration is going to court to stop liberals from putting a crimp in his construction plans for new sections of the border wall.

The coronavirus has shut down much of the construction industry, but the administration has not let the virus end its work on the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Reuters notes that the administration has continued its push through the courts to make sure work on the border wall stays on track.

The Trump administration has filed 41 federal court cases to obtain land along the southern border, with 16 of those cases filed during the last two months — right in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

In March alone, the Trump administration launched 12 court cases to continue his work on the wall.

In April, Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), noted that, “The wall is continuing to be built! Construction teams are self-contained and are continuing to work.”

Recently Border Patrol chief Rodney Scott reported that another seven miles of border wall was completed last week making 158 miles of border wall being completed since construction began.

Naturally, Democrats have attacked the federal funding for the border wall, especially now, during the coronavirus crisis.

However, despite the left’s attacks, the border wall construction continues onward.

Chicago Mayor Signs Order to Give Illegals Free Coronavirus Relief Funds

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot signed an executive order Tuesday to divert coronavirus relief money to illegal aliens living in the Windy City.



Chicago’s vaunted “first gay Mayor,” Lori Lightfoot, signed an executive order Tuesday to divert coronavirus relief money to illegal aliens living in the Windy City.

The mayor has made a special point to celebrate her “sanctuary city” rules giving cover to law breaking illegals and as much free stuff as she can find to throw at them. So, the idea of diverting coronavirus money to illegals and away from actual citizens is not a surprise from her.

According to the Daily Caller:

“This order is more than just an official decree, it is a statement of our values as a city and as Americans,” the Democratic mayor said during the press conference.

“Since COVID-19 first reached our city’s doorstep, we have been working around the clock to ensure all our residents are secure and supported, including our immigrant and refugee communities, who are among the most vulnerable to the impact of this pandemic,” Lightfoot continued.

22nd ward alderman Michael Rodriguez was thrilled with the order, naturally. The alderman who seems to think he represents Mexico, called illegals “our family.”

“Not all of Chicago’s residents qualify for federal stimulus checks, state unemployment insurance or other economic assistance due to their documentation status,” (22nd ward alderman Michael) Rodriguez said. “These Chicagoans are vital community members who work in various industries and help our great city to thrive every day.”

“These Chicagoans are our family members, co-workers, neighbors and friends. I applaud the Mayor for standing with undocumented individuals and families to ensure their eligibility for any economic assistance offered by the City of Chicago during this global pandemic,” he added.

In her press release, Lightfoot bragged about kow towing to illegals:

Passed the Accountability on Communication and Transparency (ACT) Ordinance, which officially terminates ICE’s access to Chicago Police Department databases related to civil immigration enforcement activities and reaffirms the City’s commitment not to cooperate with or facilitate any ICE effort to target Chicago’s immigrant families.

As per usual, Democrats bend over backwards for criminals while taking support away from real Americans.
