Following SCOTUS Decison on Arizona Immigration, Homeland Security Suspends Immigration Agreements With Arizona Police
Talk about vindictive … Once again King Obama speaks and disregards the US Constitution, the US Supreme Court and his Oath of office … How’s that “hopey, changey” thing working out for you America?
In yet another act of Executive defiance, Barack Obama’s Homeland Security suspends Immigration agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws. They have issued a a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting cases of illegal immigration. The following is an act of a sore loser President. On Monday the administration officials also said they are ending the seven 287(g) task force agreements with Arizona law enforcement officials, which proactively had granted some local police the powers to enforce immigration laws. UNREAL. So much for the rule of law and separation of powers. We have a President who thinks he is King.
The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.
Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport.
“We will not be issuing detainers on individuals unless they clearly meet our defined priorities,” one official said in a telephone briefing.
The official said that despite the increased number of calls, which presumably means more illegal immigrants being reported, the Homeland Security Department is unlikely to detain a significantly higher number of people and won’t be boosting personnel to handle the new calls.
The Lonely Conservative says, why should we be surprised by the actions of the Obama Administration. If this is how they act, when the SCOTUS rules, could you imagine what Obama and his henchman will do of the Court strikes down Obamacare?
So this is what you get when you dare go against Barack Obama, you wind up on his enemies list. As stated at the PJ Tatler, This is a political maneuver designed to punish Arizona. Barack Obama congratulates the Muslim Brotherhood on their victory in the Egyptian Presidency, yet attack a US State and tries to make an example out of them because they dare defy der Obama on enforcing illegal immigration. Obama must be voted out in 2012, can you only imagine the disregard of the people and the US Constitution with a lame duck President?
It also tells us that the administration has given up on winning Arizona, which until recently was considered a swing state, this fall. Obama has written it off, and is now going Soviet on it to make it an example to others. He is essentially kicking Arizona out of whatever is left of the federal government’s border enforcement, declaring to smugglers and traffickers that Arizona is very much on its own.
LIAR & The Friday Night Document Dump: AG Eric Holder Knew About Fast & Furious the Day Border Agent Brian Terry Was Murdered
Eric Holder … HE LIED!!!
Once again the DOJ had a Friday night document dump. You know what that means, more docs they don’t want anyone to report on. However, that did not stop the Daily Caller. A document released this weekend shows that Eric Holder was notified of Fast and Furious the day Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered in Arizona.
Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice dumped documents related to Operation Fast and Furious on congressional officials late Friday night. Central to this document dump is a series of emails showing Holder was informed of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder on the day it happened – December 15, 2010.
An email from one official, whose name has been redacted from the document, to now-former Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke reads: “On December 14, 2010, a BORTAC agent working in the Nogales, AZ AOR was shot. The agent was conducting Border Patrol operations 18 miles north of the international boundary when he encountered [redacted word] unidentified subjects. Shots were exchanged resulting in the agent being shot. At this time, the agent is being transported to an area where he can be air lifted to an emergency medical center.”
That email was sent at 2:31 a.m. on the day Terry was shot. One hour later, a follow-up email read: “Our agent has passed away.”
So how does 5 months turn into a couple of weeks? It does when it comes to the Barack Obama administration. Remember back on May 3, 2011 Attorney General Eric Holder testified under oath before a Congressional committee that he first heard of Fast and Furious in the last few weeks. Can we say liar? Can we say perjury?
As stated at Big Government, Fast and Furious just took a new turn. It is time for Eric Holder to resign. If his actions with the Black Panther party and the voter intimidation case was not bad enough, it is becoming quite obvious that Holder knew about Fast and Furious and he lied. Time to say goodbye.
I wonder whether the MSM will cover this story?
File this one under, are you serious!
US federal officials plan on creating a self serve border crossing between the US and Mexico. That is correct, an unmanned border crossing with Mexico. It is supposed to improve security, because agents will be monitoring things from 100 miles away. Who’s brilliant idea was this? The United States already has a problem with Mexicans illegally crossing into America so now we are going to create an EZ Pass for them to do so. Oh but wait, we will monitor it from 100′s of miles away so when we see something go wrong, what will be the response time?
This hardly seems a time the U.S. would be willing to allow people to cross the border legally from Mexico without a customs officer in sight. But in this rugged, remote West Texas terrain where wading across the shallow Rio Grande undetected is all too easy, federal authorities are touting a proposal to open an unmanned port of entry as a security upgrade.
By the spring, kiosks could open up in Big Bend National Park allowing people from the tiny Mexican town of Boquillas del Carmen to scan their identity documents and talk to a customs officer in another location, at least 100 miles away.
The crossing, which would be the nation’s first such port of entry with Mexico, has sparked opposition from some who see it as counterintuitive in these days of heightened border security.
Good grief, why don’t we just give them free “Fast & Furious” guns too while they cross through the self-serve kiosk? As the Lonely Conservative opines, what could possibly go wrong? What other moronic ideas could possibly come from the Obama administration?
The Middle East is in crisis, turmoil and unrest beginning in Saudi Arabia as theymobilize troops to quell a revolt, Muammar el-Qaddafi Qaddafi Libyan situation spiraling out of control, gas prices are headed toward $4.00 a gallon, US federal debt is out of control, we have no coherent energy policy except to prevent energy production, the murders in Mexico spiral out of control on our southern open border, and state after state in the United States is on the verge of financial ruin … So what does President Barack Obama do … The One goes golfing.
In a sign that spring is nearing in Washington, President Obama hit the golf course Saturday …
A 10-vehicle motocade took Obama to the Andrews Air Force Base golf course …
His golfing partners Saturday are accustomed to hitting the links with the president: press staffer Ben Finkenbinder, trip director Marvin Nicholson and Department of Energy staffer David Katz.
GOOD GRIEF.I wonder how much tax payer dollars the 10 vehicle motorcade ate up in gas for The One’s trip to play golf? Are not there more important and critical things that this this President needs to be doing?
Priceless, Napolitano Visits Afghanistan to Discuss Afghan Border Security, but Back Home Refuses to Secure USA – Mexico Border
File this one under, you have got to be “friggin” kidding me …
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visits Afghanistan in an attempt to find new ways to establish a border security and customs system to counter terrorism while allowing legitimate travel and trade. WHAT!!! This from the same person who refuses to secure the US – Mexican border? Are you joking, this is like a bad SNL skit.
I will secure the Afghan border just like I have done with the US-Mexican one
Question, what will Napolitano call the terrorist that sneak across the Afghan-Pakistan border … undocumented Jihadists? How can any one take this serious? Napolitano and her cronies are supposed to affect Afghan border security when right under her very nose in the United States she has failed miderably to secure let alone address the issue of the border. Just ask the family of deceased border agent Brian Terry whether Napolitano is doing a good job at securing the border? We have an Obama Administration that is more concerned with going after Arizona and their efforts to protect their citizens than they do securing the border. Now they are going to show their expertise in Afghanistan. I feel confident. Unconfirmed reports states that terrorist in Pakistan were wetting them self with laughter.
Six Department of Homeland Security (DHS) customs and border security officials will accompany Napolitano on the weeklong trip, which will include stops in Qatar, Israel and Belgium.
Napolitano spent Friday morning touring Afghanistan’s Torkham Border Crossing with Pakistan and meeting with Afghan an U.S. border security and customs officials to find new ways to establish a border-security and customs system to counter terrorism while allowing legitimate travel and trade.
Napolitano tells family of critical and grieving fallen border agent that Obama’s done more in two years than any president.
Home Land Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was not a happy camper when she and President Obama were criticized by the Terry Family who lost their son during a shootout near the Arizona border this week. The arrogance of the Obama administration is sickening. They actually believe that they do not have to answer to the families of fallen heroes.
Yet another cluless, over their head Obama Admin
The must see VIDEO of the grieving Terry Family giving the Obama Administration an earful.
Janet Napolitano thought she was going to just walk into a funeral for a fallen hero and not have to take flack for the lack of any border security policy on the Mexican border. The grieving family said that Napolitano’s words were empty. The Terry family told Napolitano to, “wake your man up in the White House”, to which she responded back to the family of a fallen border security hero, that Obama’s done more in two years than any president. What class.
How arrogant are these folks, Napolitano chided reporters for reporting the news.
Missing & Murdered David Hartley: Lead Mexican Investigator of Falcon Lake Case Rolando Armando Flores Villegas Beheaded
If you thought that the case of missing and presumed murder of American tourist David Hartley could not get any more strange and bizarre, you were wrong. UNREAL!
The lead Mexican investigator of the“missing & murdered” David Hartley case, Rolando Armando Flores Villegas, was beheaded. The Mexican investigators severed head was delivered in a suitcase to the military. It is confirmed, the drug cartels have drawn a line in the sand … leave the area, do not investigate, or die.
Think this is not a message from the drug cartels to the Mexican authorities to cease and desist? Obviously the Zeta drug cartel does not want any one investigating or snooping around in this area as they have sent a clear and present message.
The area is known to be under control of the Zeta drug cartel, which fiercely protects the sparsely populated ranchland lining the border, as well as the Mexican side of the vast Falcon Lake reservoir.
Young said the family felt the cartels were trying to scare search teams away.
“I just think they’re trying to send a statement that they don’t want us there,” she said. “We haven’t really processed what it means.
Welcome to how things are done in Mexico, ala drug cartel style … who does not want border security again? So you think the violence is overblown on the border and there are no issues. You think that America-Mexico has the movement of drugs handled that are passed into the US? Who is in charge in Mexico? Then again, if one questions these Mexican barbarians and want to protect American citizens, you are called a racist. There is a larger issue here than just a case of a the murder of an American citizen, as if that is not bad enough.
The lead Mexican investigator in the Falcon Lake case, Rolando Armando Flores Villegas, has been killed, his severed head delivered Tuesday in a suitcase to the Mexican military, officials told CNN.
“His head was delivered to the army garrison this morning in a suitcase after he failed to report back home last night,” Zapata County, Texas, Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez Jr. said.
A spokesman for the attorney general of Tamaulipas state in Mexico, Ruben Dario-Rios, confirmed the killing Tuesday afternoon in a telephone interview.
The report came a day after authorities in the Tamaulipas state attorney general’s office gave conflicting information on whether authorities were pursuing a pair of suspects in the case of David Michael Hartley’s disappearance.
Mexican authorities had previously released the names of two suspects in the death and disappearance of David Hartley.
Mexican Police have Identified Two Suspects (Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias & Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias) in Shooting Death of David Hartley on Falcon Lake
Two “persons of interest” named …
Mexican police have identified two individuals as “persons of interest”in the shooting death of American tourist David Hartley on the US-Mexico border Falcon Lake. The two individuals names suspected in the murder of David Hartly are Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias, known as “El 27″, and Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias, , known as “El31″. However, police have not released a photo of the two suspects.
State police Commander Juan Carlos Ballasteros stated that the two men are from New Guerrero, Mexico, close to the abandoned town of Old Guerrero where David and Tiffany Hartley were reportedly attack by Mexican pirates.
Tamaulipas State Police Commander Juan Carlos Ballesteros told El Universal newspaper on Saturday that authorities believe Juan Pedro Saldivar-Farias and Jose Manuel Saldivar-Farias killed Hartley.
Ballesteros told the paper that the two men are accused in numerous crimes in Mexico, including burning homes, robbing businesses and several homicides.
If there is no body, is there no crime … Sound Familiar?
This area of the US-Mexican border hardly seems like a safe vacation spot that would be endorsed by travel agents as it was reported that Mexican soldiers reportedly killed six gunmen Thursday afternoon, in the same area where Hartley went missing.
One question that comes to mind in the naming of these people of interest, what is the rational behind it? Is this the rounding up of the usual suspects in Mexico or do authorities have sunstantial facts as to why to point the finger at these two?
US/Mexico: The Search for Missing & Murdered David Hartley Continues on Falcon Lake … Friends & Family Protest at Mexican Consulate in Colorado
There are questions abound and rightfully so in this case; however, what no one can question is the violence on the US-Mexican border. Did it come as a surprise to Americans that there were Mexican pirates operating so close to the US border? Not Somalian pirates, Mexican ones.
The search continues in the United States-Mexico border lake for missing and presumed murdered David Hartley. However, to date there has been no body found. Searches continue, even though there were threats of an ambush from drug gangs temporarily thwarted efforts.
The story is bizarre to say the least. The wife’s story had initially been questioned by Mexican authorities. That’s is a dicey comment to state publicly, no matter if authorities believe it to be true or not with Tiffany’s story. Remember, this is Mexico, where police corruption and drug cartels rule the day.
But on Monday, a Mexican official seemed to question whether the attack took place at all.
In a statement, Marco Antonio Guerrero Carrizales, district attorney for the Miguel Aleman Province, writes, “We are not sure. We are not certain that the incident happened the way they are telling us.”
CBS News correspondent Don Teague reports that family members have countered by criticizing what they see as a lackluster search effort by Mexican authorities.
Let’s keep in mind that this area is prone to violence. There had been previous attacks and people were warned about the area. Personally, I would go no where near Mexico or have my family members there, but that’s me. Please try to not compare Mexico is the US and how things are done. Mexico is not only a completely different country, its a completely different world.
However, there is a witness and blood evidence that was discovered to support. Zapata County’s sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez stated that he has blood evidence from the life vest of Tiffany Hartley, the wife of David Hartley, that supports her story. But does it really? All it supports is that David Hartley is dead. I would like to think we as a society have not become so jaded that we dismiss the words of the wife over that of Mexican authorities. However, that is not to say we do not have the right to speculate and question if the story does not add up, like in the case of murdered honeymooner George Smith.
Round 2 Meg Whitman’s Maid Nicky Diaz: Greta Van Sustren Owns Gloria Gloria Allred: “You Know What Gloria … If You Can’t Protect the Client You Shouldn’t Do the Job”
Gloria Allred threw client to the wolves and exposed her to deportation for $6200 and to affect an election … GUILTY!
The Gloria Allred political hatchet job in the Whitman/Brown California Governors race. Never was it more obvious what Gloria Allred’s intentions were than after listening to the interview with Greta Van Susteren last nigh on Fox. What a sad state of affairs when a leftist political hack attorney can use a client like an illegal immigrant like Nicandra “Nicky” Diaz and sacrifice her to the wolves, expose her to possible deportation, all in the name of swinging a political election. Nice ethics Gloria.
Round II: Greta van Susteren last night scored a knock out in the political/legal boxing match with uber-Lib attorney Gloria Allred. Actually, the referee should have stepped in and stopped the match as Greta owned Allred who was “Alldone” the minute the interview started.
Greta: I think she would have been a lot smarter to talk to a lawyer who worried more about her liberty whether she be deported than whether she make a public statement
Greta: First thing a job a lawyer to do is to protect the client, not throw the client out to the wolves. If you can’t protect the client you shouldn’t do the job”
Gloria had no answers for Greta, except that her client was intelligent. Hmm, I do not remember that question being asked in the smackdown.
Video Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
I think she would have been a lot smarter to talk to a lawyer who worried about whether she would be deported than some sort of public statement on someone running for office… You know what Gloria? The first thing for a lawyer to do is to protect the client not throw the client out to the wolves. If you can’t protect the client you shouldn’t do the job… You can’t just keep making this stuff up.”
Gloria Allred was found guilty on all charges of drumming this up to affect an ellection and putting her client at risk when she said the following, she (Nicky) wanted to people know how she was treated when she was a maid for Meg Whitman. Really Gloria? You mean the mistreatment of being paid $23 an hr as a maid? Oh the pain. Of course the other question is, how is one mistreated when they broke the laws of the United States and entered the country illegally, they then used a phony social security number and then kmnowing lied on work applications. Who is the victim here?
Nicky Diaz lied and violated the law and now she is claiming damages, priceless. However, when Greta states, “she lied and violated the law, maybe she is not the ideal spokesperson for this issue”, the response from Allred was telling and she was found wanting of being a political hack. Allred’s response had nothing to do with her client, instead she said the following, “well maybe Meg Whitman is not the ideal person for governor.” UNREAL.
Goria Allred should be brought up on ethics charges in fron of the California bar for this. Then again, a lot that useless organization would do. it makes one wonder, who is paying Gloria Allred in this unethical hatchet job and is Nicky being paid to do this. Who in their right mind would expose themselves to this potential legal harm and deportation for $6200 and the right to speek her mind.
