WELL AT LEAST THE FEDS WILL KNOW WHERE TO GO TO FIND THE ILLEGALS …
Just when you thought you have heard it all, now restaurants in some cities want to get “Sanctuary” status. Like this is ever going to happen. According to reports, some 80 restaurants are participating, in locations including New York, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston, Oakland, California, and Ann Arbor, Michigan to look to barring the police from asking citizens about immigration status or refusing to cooperate with federal agents, siting anti-discrimination policies. Hmm, maybe these restaurants would like to following US law and use E-VERIFY to actually verify the status of their employees.
Once again we shall ask, what part of “illegal” don’t these restaurants get?
The national debate over immigration policy could be coming to a diner near you.
From down-home delis to upscale bistros, dozens of restaurants nationwide are seeking “sanctuary” status, a designation owners hope will help protect employees in an immigrant-heavy industry and tone down fiery rhetoric sparked by the presidential campaign. First inspired by churches, the label is something cities and other public entities have sought to offer local protections to immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, whether it’s barring police from asking citizens about immigration status or refusing to cooperate with federal agents.
Roughly 80 restaurants are participating, in locations including New York, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston, Oakland, California, and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The restaurants agree to anti-discrimination policies, put up signs on windows that pronounce their sanctuary status and receive know-your-rights training, such as webinars on how to ask federal immigration agents for proper paperwork if there’s an attempted raid. Some will also offer a text line for customers or employees to report any incidents of harassment.
At Detroit’s Russell Street Deli, which serves up deli sandwiches and hotcakes, customers walking in the front door of the racially-diverse restaurant see a sign that reads: “SANCTUARY RESTAURANT a place at the table for everyone.”
It’s On … GOP nominee Donald Trump to make historic campaign trip to Mexico Wednesday and meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
The WAPO is reporting that Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City today and meet with with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just prior to Trump’s much anticipated immigration policy speech in Arizona later today. Late Tuesday night on his Twitter feed, Mr. Trump said he had “accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.” President Nieto had invited both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to Mexico; however, only one has shown the leadership and where-with-all to take him up on his offer. Like him or hate him, he certainly has CO-JONES! Despite previous death threats due to Donald’s tough talk regarding Mexico, illegal immigration, building a border wall and making Mexico pay for it, Trump is going anyways. This should be interesting, oh to be a fly on the wall.
According to reports, Trump will be accompanied on the Mexico trip by former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican.
Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City on Wednesday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just hours before he delivers a high-stakes speech in Arizona to clarify his views on immigration policy.
Peña Nieto last Friday invited both Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to visit Mexico, his office said in a statement provided to The Washington Post on Tuesday night.
Trump, sensing an opportunity, decided over the weekend to accept the invitation and push for a visit this week, according to the people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions.
Late Tuesday, Trump and the Mexican president confirmed on Twitter that they will meet Wednesday.
UPDATE I: Mexico rages against Trump visit.
One can only shake their heads at the reaction of those in Mexico that are coming unglued by Donald Trump’s visit. Amigo’s, it is your president that invited Trump. I wonder what they are afraid of?
Reaction was fast and furious among those in the Mexican political cognoscenti.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized on behalf of the country during an interview on CNN, accusing both Trump and Peña Nieto for using the occasion to exploit their own political opportunities.
“It’s a very opportunistic move, and I hope U.S. public opinion, U.S. citizens can see this and finally, and finally see what is behind Trump, this false prophet that is just cheating everybody,” Fox said during the Skype chat on “New Day” on Wednesday, adding that it is “a desperate move and I don’t see how it can work at all.”
The only way that inviting Trump makes sense for Mexico would be if Peña Nieto gets the Republican nominee to apologize for his past statements about Mexicans, Fox said, admitting that he did not understand the thinking of the current Mexican president while pronouncing Trump’s decision to visit “very smart.”
Fox had also reacted fiercely to the news Tuesday night, telling Trump that “[t]here is no turning back” from his offensive remarks about Mexicans, Muslims and others that he said “have led you to the pit where you are today.”
Added Fox, who previously apologized to the candidate after declaring that Mexico was not going to pay for “that f—-ing wall”: “¡Adiós, Trump!”

Obama’s White House Gets Higher Wall, But a Wall Between Mexico and USA for Border Security is A Bad Thing
WALLS AND SECURITY FOR ME, NOT FOR THEE …
It is the ultimate show of hypocrisy, The White House, the house that Barack Obama lives in; however, thankfully not for long, will be getting a higher fence for better security and to keep people out. The new 11-foot-7-inch barrier surrounding the White House facility will replace the 7 foot one to prevent individuals from jumping or scaling the current one. OH THE IRONY. So from the president who says fences and walls are not the answer comes the following that they are the answer when it comes to White House security. Hmm, this reeks of do as I say, not as I do and that Obama and the house he lives in is more important than the country we live in.
In a commencement speech at Rutgers, see the VIDEO below, Obama makes the point that walls are bad and evil. REALLY? Of course the fool made a reference to the Iron Curtain, and any literate person knows that it was a wall to keep people in, not out. Maybe Obama should take his own advice in that ignorance is not a virtue. Obama said the following: “Building walls won’t do that. It won’t boost our economy, and it won’t enhance our security either. [...] Suggesting that we can build an endless wall along our borders, and blame our challenges on immigrants — that doesn’t just run counter to our history as the world’s melting pot; it contradicts the evidence that our growth and our innovation and our dynamism has always been spurred by our ability to attract strivers from every corner of the globe. That’s how we became America. Why would we want to stop it now?”
But higher and more secure walls are perfectly okay for Obama. And with regards to ignorance not being a virtue Mr. President, the United States of America is a governed by rule of laws. We have never allowed all immigrants into this country. They have always had to pass a standard. And they certainly could not come into the country illegally. Sorry, but that was not how we became America. Also, since you brought up the “melting pot”. What melting pot are you referring to when in today’s society I see Mexican flags being flown at rallies and a Muslims in the USA want Sharia law? The melting pot meant assimilation into the American way of culture and society, not keeping your own.
The federal Commission of Fine Arts has given its preliminary approval for a taller White House fence to better protect the presidential mansion after a rash of fence-hopping incidents.
The commission on Thursday voted to approve an 11-foot-7-inch barrier surrounding the White House facility after a presentation by the U.S. Secret Service and the National Park Service. The new fence would replace the current 7-foot barrier.
The new fence “incorporates anti-climb and intrusion detection technology, while respecting the historical significance and visitor experience at the White House and President’s Park,” the Secret Service and Park Service said in a joint statement.
The commission, an independent federal agency charged with reviewing design and aesthetics at federal facilities, among other things, will still need to sign off on the final design, which will be refined and finalized in the coming months. The Secret Service and the Park Service hope to begin construction on the new White House fence by 2018.
A set of temporary barriers have been placed around the White House since last year to keep visitors away from the current White House fence after a number of security incidents showed that it could be easily scaled. The temporary barricades prevent tourists and visitors from approaching the fence itself.
How come Obama’s “OPEN BORDERS” philosophy is not implemented at his own house? Next up, Barack and Michelle will be telling us to eat cake.
The family of deceased Kate Steinle has filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, names the city and county of San Francisco, former county Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi and the United States “for their failures to perform mandatory duties and/or for the unconstitutional and/or negligent acts and/or omissions of their officers, officials, agents and/or employees.” Kate Steinle was shot to death by 45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez -on a San Francisco pier last summer. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez is an
undocumented immigrant illegal alien and a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico.
The fatal shooting of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier last summer — allegedly at the hands of an undocumented immigrant deported five times from the United States — became a focal point of an angry national debate over illegal immigration.
On Friday, her family filed a federal lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, San Francisco County’s former sheriff, the federal Bureau of Land Management and the man who allegedly fired the deadly shot.
“Kate’s death was both foreseeable and preventable had the law enforcement agencies, officials and/or officers involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures which they swore to uphold,” the lawsuit said.
On the evening of July 1, 2015, Steinle was walking on a busy pier of the Embarcadero with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air. The 32-year-old medical device sales representative was shot in the chest, a bullet piercing her aorta, according to the lawsuit.
Her father, James, held her in his arms. “Help me Daddy,” were her last words to him, the lawsuit said. She died later at a hospital.
I so hope the family of Kate Steinle wins this lawsuit against San Francisco for their “sanctuary city” policies!!!
