TRUMP ENDS CATCH AND RELEASE …
President Donald Trump has signed a memo ending “catch and relase” illegal immigration policy. It is about time! The White House announced late Friday the end of the “catch and release” policy for illegal immigrants. Catch and release is the practice by which immigrants presenting themselves at the border without authorization are released from detention while waiting for their cases to be processed. Yeah, like how many of them actually show up for their hearing as opposed to becoming illegal residents of the United States? President Trump ran for president to reform immigration policy. Even though the do-nothing Congress hasn’t passed any type of sweeping reform, the administration is taking steps to make policies stricter. And Republicans wonder why they are in trouble for the 208 midterm elections.
U.S. President Donald Trump signed a memorandum on Friday ordering the end of a policy, known as “catch and release,” in which illegal immigrants are released from detention while awaiting a court hearing on their status.
As part of the memo, Trump asked Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to produce a list of military facilities that could be used to detain illegal immigrants.
ICE Raids Southeastern Provision Meatpacking Plant in Bean Station, TN; 97 Illegal Immigrants Arrested
THE ICE MAN COMETH … ICE ARRESTS 97 ILLEGALS AT MEAT PROCESSING PLANT IN TENNESSEE.
Federal ICE agents arrested 97 illegal immigrants at a meat processing company in rural Bean Station, Tennessee. The raid at Southeastern Provision was the largest workplace raid in a decade. Of the 97 arrested, ten people were arrested on federal immigration charges, one person was arrested on state charges and 86 immigrants were detained for being in the country illegally. The feds began investigating Southeastern Provision months ago after Citizens Bank employees noticed that the meat packing company was withdrawing large sums of cash every week, more than $25 million since 2008. According to a federal affidavit, the family-run meat packing plant is under criminal investigation for allegedly evading taxes, filing false tax returns and hiring immigrants in the country illegally. It is alleged the facility failed to report $8.4 million in wages and to pay at least $2.5 million in payroll taxes for dozens of undocumented workers. So much for mandatory E-verify. This is just another effort if removing the illegal work “magnets”.
Federal officials arrested 97 immigrants at a meat-processing plant in rural Tennessee on Thursday in what civil rights organizations said was the largest single workplace raid in a decade and a sign that the Trump administration is carrying out its plan to aggressively ramp up enforcement this year.
Ten people were arrested on federal immigration charges, one person was arrested on state charges and 86 immigrants were detained for being in the country illegally, Tammy Spicer, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in a statement Friday. All of those arrested are suspected of being in the country illegally, she said. Immigration advocates said most were from Mexico.
The raid on Southeastern Provision in Bean Station, Tennessee, follows arrests at 7-Eleven stores and other workplaces nationwide. Last year, the nation’s top immigration official said he had ordered agents to increase the number of work-site inspections and operations by “four or five times” this year, to turn off the job “magnets” that attract immigrants who are in the country illegally and punish employers who hire them.
The National Immigration Law Center and other immigrant advocates said the Tennessee raid was the largest since the George W. Bush administration and deployed many of the tactics of that era, with a surprise blitz of the factory and streets blocked by state and local authorities. ICE officials would not say where the raid ranked in terms of size.
“People are panicked,” said Stephanie Teatro, co-executive director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, a statewide organization that came to the small town and set up intake centers at local churches where relatives could report their loved ones missing. “People are terrified to drive. People are terrified to leave their homes.”
Of the 86 immigrants arrested on civil immigration charges, ICE released 32 but did not explain why. The remaining 54 were being detained, but the agency did not provide their names or say where they were being held.
Illegal Alien Andres Avelino Anduaga From Mexico Used Fake Identity For 37 Years to Steal $361,000 in Government Benefits
IT ONLY TOOK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT 37 YEARS TO EXPOSE THE CRIME …
More from the illegals that are in the United States to do the jobs that Americans are not willing to do. For 37 years Andres Avelino Anduaga who has been in the United States illegally has been defrauding the American tax payers. Andres Avelino Anduaga plead guilty in San Diego federal court on Thursday that he assumed the fake identity of a Texas resident named Abraham Riojos in 1980 after obtaining a fraudulent birth certificate, and then successfully applied for a California driver’s license, Social Security number and passport. From 1989 to 2016 this illegal admitted he received around $361,000 in benefits. WTF!!!
From FOX News:
Andres Avelino Anduaga, 66 – who hails from Tijuana, Mexico – admitted in San Diego federal court on Thursday that he assumed the fake identity of a Texas resident named Abraham Riojos in 1980 after obtaining a fraudulent birth certificate, and then successfully applied for a California driver’s license, Social Security number and passport.
From 1989 to 2016, according to the plea agreement, he received around $361,000 in benefits — which included Medi-Cal, food stamps and Supplemental Security Income benefits.
The fake identity also enabled Anduaga – identified as an illegal immigrant and repeat felon – to go back-and-forth without restriction between Mexico and the United States, which he was alleged to have been doing multiple times per week.
“The programs that this defendant stole from – for decades – provide benefits to America’s most needy. This prosecution demonstrates the commitment of the United States Attorney’s Office to protecting the integrity of our welfare programs and punishing those who prey on the goodwill of our nation and its taxpayers,” stated U.S Attorney Adam Braverman.
DOJ REVIEWING ACTIONS OF OAKLAND, CA MAYOR WHO TIPPED OFF CRIMINAL ILLEGALS …
As reported at the LA Times, the DOJ is reviewing the actions of Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf who tipped off illegals of pending ICE raids. Her actions prevented many criminal illegals to flee and avoid arrest. One has to wonder just how are her actions not criminal in their own right? Whose side is she on? California is now so screwed up that we have mayors who are supposed to follow the laws of the United States, but would rather treat illegals better than they would actual legal citizens. The fact that a mayor helped criminals evade the law is unreal. Hopefully the DOJ will prosecute Schaaf and she will be jailed for her actions.
The White House on Thursday said the Department of Justice was reviewing the actions of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who last weekend alerted residents in advance of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid in Northern California.
“I think it’s outrageous that a mayor would circumvent federal authorities and certainly put them in danger by making a move such as that,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.
She said Schaaf’s actions were under “review” but would not be more specific.
Justin Berton, a spokesman for Schaaf, said the mayor’s office is unaware of any review and declined to comment further. A Justice Department spokesman in the Bay Area also declined to comment.
Schaaf has defended her statement, saying she felt it was her duty to warn residents of the ICE action.
Oakland, like many California cities, has declared itself a sanctuary for those here illegally, and officials there have vowed to fight President Trump’s immigration crackdown.
DUI: Twice Deported Illegal Alien Manuel Orrego-Savala Kills Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson & Uber Driver Jeffrey Monroe
LOOKS LIKE THEY TAKE OTHERS DREAMS AWAY … WHY ARE THESE PEOPLE ALLOWED TO BE IN THIS COUNTRY?
37 year old, twice deported, twice arrested for DUI, Manuel Orrego-Savala is suspected of driving drunk yet again and is responsible for the deaths of 26-year-old Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and 54-year-old Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe. The fatal car accident took place at 4 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 70 in Indiana. According to FOX59, investigators believe Monroe was Jackson’s Uber driver and Jackson was the passenger,. The station said at some point during the ride Jackson became sick, and the pair were hit on the emergency shoulder of the highway after Monroe pulled over. Orrego-Savala fled the scene but was arrested shortly thereafter by the responding officer.
When is enough, enough? How many American citizens have to be killed by illegals before we take action to really prevent them from being in this country, not treating it like a joke?
Manuel Orrego-Savala, left, is from Guatemala and currently is in the U.S. illegally responsible for the death of
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man on Super Bowl Sunday.
The man suspected of driving drunk and fatally striking an Indianapolis Colts player and his Uber driver early Sunday had twice been deported and was in the country illegally, police confirmed Monday.
Police say Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when he hit and killed Edwin Jackson, a 26-year-old Colts linebacker, and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, Jackson’s Uber driver, around 4 a.m. Sunday.
Orrego-Savala is from Guatemala, according to Indiana State Police. He was first deported in 2007 and again in 2009 following arrests in San Francisco, according to a spokesperson for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE officials say Orrego-Savala has a prior conviction in California for driving under the influence.
Wake up America, especially those on the LEFT … this never had to happen. This was completely preventable had we had a border that actually kept illegals out. But Democrats would rather shut down the U.S. government in favor of illegals in America.
Orrego-Savala’s history in the U.S. dates back more than a decade. ICE spokesperson Nicole Alberico said in an email that Orrego-Savala is believed to have entered the country on or around July 1, 2004.
He was convicted of driving under the influence in Redwood City, Calif., in 2005, Alberico said. It was unclear what happened immediately following his conviction.
He was once again arrested by ICE in San Francisco in October 2006 for being in the country illegally. He was removed to Guatemala for the first time on Jan. 17, 2007.
He was again arrested by deportation officers in San Francisco on March 26, 2009, and was removed to Guatemala for the second time on May 12, 2009.
It is unknown when he returned to the U.S. and at what point he arrived in Indiana.
According to the state police, the crash happened shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday along the westbound lanes of I-70, just west of Holt Road.
Jackson and Monroe, of Avon, were standing near Monroe’s stopped vehicle when Orrego-Savala’s Ford F-150 pick-up truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and struck them both.
