Jeb Bush Says He Will Make a Decision of Presidential Run by End of Year and Illegal Immigrants Who Come to US in an “Act of Love” Deserve to Get Amnesty

To borrow Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug slogan of the 1980′s and apply it to Jeb Bush’s thoughts on running for president … “JUST SAY NO”!!!

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says he will make a decision on a 2016 presidential run by the end of the year. Oh boy, I can’t wait. Let me just say that if the GOP wants to lose another election with a candidate along the lines of John McCain and Mitt Romney, then by all means have the elitist, establishment Republican party get behind Jeb. Let alone, we do not need another Bush as president. Just like we do not need another Clinton. It would appear that Instapundit and I agree! I think out of the 300 million people in the United States we can elect a president whose last name does not begin with Bush or Clinton.

Why do we not need a RINO like Jeb Bush as a GOP candidate? We need to look no further than his statement on Sunday that illegal immigrants who come to the United States as an “act out of love” for their families deserve to be treated differently than others who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. This is obviously code for, they deserve amnesty. I wonder if Jeb feels the same if an individual robs a bank, store or someone’s home out of love for their family or sells drugs is also the same?

A note to Jeb Bush … ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!!! This is exactly the reason why so many have lost faith in establishment, limousine Republicans.

Washington Post:

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.

Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made “a good effort” at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.

“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.

“There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law,” he added. “But the way I look at this — and I’m going to say this, and it’ll be on tape and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”

So Jeb, why have any immigration policy if you think that the United States is just one big welfare state meant to help others in other countries, rather than its own citizens? Jeb Bush does realize that an immigration policy is meant to protect the survival of a country by allowing individuals with talent and skills to strengthen a country, not to let anyone one in who is going to be nothing more than a burden on society.

Just Criminal: Obama Administration Refuse to Enforce Immigrations Laws … ICE Released 68,000 Illegal Immigrants with Criminal Convictions

How is it that Obamacare is the law of the land, yet Barack Obama refuses to enforce current immigration laws?

UNREAL … This is how the Obama administration protects the citizens of the United States? You know Barack, the legal ones! As reported at The Hill, in 2013 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions back into the population. Instead of deporting these criminals, the Obama administration released 35% of the illegals with criminal records back into the general population. Barack Obama should be charged with a crime for this.

Obama_mexican illegals

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws.

An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics on arrests and deportations in 2013 showed that ICE agents encountered 193,357 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions but issued charging documents for only 125,478. More than 67,800 were released.

The data came from an end-of-year “Weekly Departures and Detention Report.”

The Center for Immigration Studies, a research group that favors stricter enforcement of immigration laws, estimates ICE agents released more than a third of illegal immigrants with criminal records they detained.

“ICE released 68,000 criminal aliens in 2013, or 35 percent of the criminal aliens encountered by officers.

As Breitbart further points out, this report comes out on the heels of a report from the office of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) last week which found that only .08 percent of the aliens deported in 2013 were not serial immigration law violators or convicted of serious crimes.

Democrat Alex Sink, Candidate for Florida 13th Congressional District Says Iimmigration Reform Important … Where Else Will We “Get People to Work to Clean our Hotel Rooms or do our Landscaping?”

SHE SAID WHAT … A MOMENT OF HONESTY FROM A DEMOCRAT AND WHAT THEY REALLY THINK OF ILLEGALS!!!

Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink said immigration reform was important during a Tuesday debate with Republican David Jolly and Libertarian Lucas Overby. Sink says immigration reform is important  because, without it, how else would Florida employers to find people to clean hotel rooms and do landscaping. YIKES! Take a good look Hispanics what Democrats think of you and where your place is in their caste system. Could Sink have possibly been more demeaning? This is what you are voting for Hispanics, people who want you to get them their towels, make their beds and mow their lawn.

” … where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping?”

Alex Sink is running in a special election for Florida’s 13th congressional seat, that is confined to Pinellas County and stretches from Dunedin to the southern end the county, excluding parts of St. Petersburg, that was vacated last year with the death of Bill Young.

Hot Air asks a great question, can some Republican make the exact same comment so that the MSM can rail against them and call them hateful bigots? What do you think the reaction would be if a Republican made such a comment?

Washington Free Beacon:

“Immigration reform is important in our country,” she said. “We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? We don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.

Mexican Drug Lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Arrested in Mazatlán, Mexico by Mexican Marines, US Marshals and DEA

Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was arrested Saturday morning at 6:40 am, February 22, 2014 at a resort in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. Guzman is the head of the  Sinaloa Cartel and one of the #1 drug kingpins in Mexico.  Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said the arrest occurred without a shot being fired. He was caught with an unidentified woman. The 56 year old Guzman had been eluding capture for more than a dozen years. Mexican Marines, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the US Marshals Service carried out the joint operation.

The Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, head of the  Sinaloa cartel, was arrested on Saturday February 22nd at 6 am, inside a resort in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. His capture was the result of an operation coordinated by Mexican and U.S. authorities, as it was informed this morning by The Associated Press.

A senior U.S. official said Guzman was captured alive in the city of Mazatlán, a tourist destination on the Pacific coast of Mexico. The official, who was not authorized to speak about the arrest, gave information on condition of anonymity.

Guzman was arrested overnight in a hotel in the Pacific beach town of Mazatlan, in his home state of Sinaloa.

He had been on the lam since escaping from prison in 2001, and no one — that we know of — came close to catching the drug lord who regularly appears on Forbes magazine list of most powerful people.

The rumor was that with that kind of money, he could be hiding anywhere in the world.

In the end, he was caught just 140 miles from the city of Culiacan, the home base for his Sinaloa drug cartel.

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman wanted in both Mexico and the United States.

In Chicago, where the city’s crime commission last year named Guzman its Public Enemy No. 1 — a designation originally crafted for Al Capone — authorities praised the arrest. Chicago is among the major destinations of the cartel’s drug flow.

“The arrest of Chapo Guzman is significant,” police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a statement. “This is a victory, but we know the tentacles of his cartel still exist and much more work remains to be done. Demand for narcotics will still remain, so we will continue to partner with the DEA as they fight international drug trade, and we will remain focused on our efforts to eliminate the factors that drive violence in our city.”

From New York to Chicago, Texas to San Diego, Guzman and his lieutenants are named in indictments for marijuana, cocaine and heroin trafficking, as well as racketeering, money laundering, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder.

CNN:

Harry Devert’s motorcycle journey from the United States to Latin America is somewhat reminiscent of “The Motorcycle Diaries,” which recount the South American travels of revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara on an old motorbike in search of his insurgent spirit.

But Devert, 32, who left a job as a trader in finance to travel the world, has not been in touch with his mother or girlfriend in New York since January 25. That day he sent girlfriend Sarah Ashley Schiear an ominous text via the WhatsApp messenger app.

“Just got an hour and a half long escort out of some area it was too dangerous for me to be,” the message said. “Stopping for lunch and … voila Internet. … Gonna get back on the road soon. Apparently there’s another military escort waiting for me in some other town… I’m running way late because of the crazy military stuff…hopefully get a chance to talk to you tonight when I (hopefully) finally arrive.”

He had checked out of a bed and breakfast in the southwestern Mexican state of Michoacan and planned to travel to a beach in Zihuatanejo, on the Pacific coast, that was in the final scene of the film “The Shawshank Redemption,” according to friends and family.

“My son is a great communicator and he always lets me know — because I’m anxious — as close as he can where he’s going to be or if he’s going to be out of touch,” his mother, Ann Devert, told CNN Saturday.

Last week, Ann Devert contacted both the American and French embassies in Mexico. Her son, born in France, has dual citizenship.

In a statement Saturday, a U.S. State Department spokesperson confirmed that a U.S. citizen was reported missing near Morelia, Michoacan (MAP), but declined further comment “due to privacy considerations.”

“When a U.S. citizen is reported missing in Mexico, the U.S. Embassy or Consulate works with both the missing person’s family and Mexican and U.S. law enforcement agencies to locate the missing individual and return him or her to safety,” the statement said. “For missing person cases in Mexico, Mexican law enforcement institutions generally have jurisdiction and play the lead role in the conduct of investigations. We work closely with Mexican authorities to monitor such cases and seek progress as quickly as possible.”

Good Riddance … Convicted Cop Killer Edgar Tamayo Arias Who Was in US Illegally Executed Tonight in Texas for 1994 Murder of Officer Guy Gaddis

DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS … Let this be a message to every foreign national individual in the United States illegally, you kill a police officer in a state that has the death penalty and you will be put to death.

After 20 years, justice is finally served. Tonight Mexican national Edgar Tamayo Arias was executed in  Huntsville, Texas for the 1994 killing of a Houston police officer Guy Gaddis. A last ditch effort by Tamayo’s attorney to keep the convicted cop killer alive failed Wednesday night when the U.S. Supreme Court denied a motion to stay his execution. Defense attorney’s claimed that Tamayo’s execution violated international law. However, at 9:32 p.m. CT, Edgar Tamayo Arias, was put to death for his crimes. But I guess Tamayo was doing the jobs that Americans were not willing to do. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Illegal Edgar Tamayo Arias Executed for Murder of Office Guy Gaddis

Texas executed a Mexican citizen late Wednesday despite objections from Mexico, a former Texas governor and U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry.

Edgar Tamayo Arias, 46, was put to death at 9:32 p.m. Central time for killing a Houston police officer in 1994, according to Jason Clark, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Tamayo made no last statement, Clark said.

Tamayo’s attorneys fought until the last minute to save his life, appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay of execution. It was denied. They argued that Tamayo had been deprived of his rights because, as a foreign citizen, he should have been informed of his right to diplomatic assistance under an international treaty known as the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

Tamayo’s lawyers turned to the high court after the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected their appeal that Tamayo was developmentally disabled, mentally ill and ineligible for execution.

KUDOS to Texas Gov. Rick Perry who said in the face of the liberal outrage of those who wanted to protect this cop killer, “the state was committed to enforcing its laws.” Let’s get a couple of things straight here in this case, rather than how the MSM is only discussing and focusing how this murderer was wronged.  There is only one victim here and that is murdered police officer Guy Gaddis.

Mexican officials had petitioned the U.S. government on Tamayo’s behalf, including Foreign Secretary Jose Antonio Meade and Ambassador to the U.S. Eduardo Medina Mora.

Former Texas governor and attorney general Mark White, a Democrat, also backed a review of Tamayo’s case.

Kerry wrote to Texas officials last fall urging a reconsideration of Tamayo’s execution.

“I have no reason to doubt the facts of Mr. Tamayo’s conviction, and as a former prosecutor, I have no sympathy for anyone who would murder a police officer,” Kerry wrote. But he added that he was concerned the state’s handling of the case could affect the way Americans are treated overseas.

Justice finally for officer Guy Gaddis

Guy_Gaddis

Let’s take a look at the crime that so many wanted to go unpunished, including Sec. of State John Kerry, and have this murderers case reviewed. Even former President GWB needs to be called out on this one. 24 year old police officer Guy Gaddis was shot and killed by Tamayo. After having arrested Tamayo, he was handcuffed and put in the back seat of the police car. As officer Gaddis drove off, Tamayo drew a concealed weapon and shot officer Gaddis in the back of the head three times. What might be most pathetic is that we have a corrupt Mexican government who purposely could care less about their people and keeping them within their own borders. This corrupt government is going to tell us what to do when one of their people is in the US illegally and kills a police officer? ARE YOU KIDDING!!! What message would it send that if an illegal Mexican could come into the United States, kill a police officer and not be put to death?

Gaddis, 24, had been flagged down near a nightclub by a man who accused Tamayo of robbing him. The officer arrested Tamayo, handcuffed him and put him in the back seat of his patrol car. He was driving away when Tamayo drew a concealed pistol and shot Gaddis three times in the back of the head.

Fallen Officers Remembered: Guy Patrick Gaddis:

On Sunday night, January 30, 1994, Officer Gaddis reported for duty on the night shift at the Beechnut. He was assigned to ride a one-man unit, 17E23N. After running several report calls, Gaddis was flagged down in the 6700 block of Bissonnet by a citizen who reported that he had been robbed by two suspects at the Topaz Night Club. The officer reported this on-view complaint to the dispatcher and requested other units to check by with him at the Topaz, a known area trouble spot located at 6501 Chimney Rock. The reporting time was 2:21 a.m. now on the morning of Monday, January 31.

Three of Officer Gaddis’ fellow units, with a total of five officers on board, immediately responded to this request. The first officer to arrive observed Officer Gaddis to have two suspects against a wall, spread-eagled and undergoing a search. This officer also observed that Gaddis had apparently completed his search of what will now be referred to as the No. 2 suspect. This first responding officer took control of this suspect and immediately handcuffed him with his hands to the rear. While doing so, this officer observed Gaddis continue his search of the No. 1 suspect. In doing so, he discovered the robbery complainant’s watch. At this point, Officer Gaddis very likely ended his search of the No. 1 suspect prematurely, handcuffing his hands behind him.

Other officers were arrived and observed the end results of the arrest. They watched as Officer Gaddis and the first arriving officer placed both suspects in the rear of Gaddis’ patrol car. Suspect No. 1, later identified as Edgar Tamayo, was seated in the left rear seat while Suspect No. 2, Jesus Zarco Mendoza, was placed in the right rear seat.

These two suspects were in custody, handcuffed behind their back in the rear seat of a caged patrol car. While Gaddis transported them to the Southeast Command Station, the following is known:

Officer Gaddis drove southbound in the 8100 block of Chimney Rock. He drove through the City of Bellaire, just north of Chimney Rock and Holly. Then something went terribly awry in the back seat of the patrol car from behind the Plexiglas cage. While driving, Officer Gaddis was shot in the back of his head, causing his patrol car to veer to the left, out of control.

The unit crossed a residential yard on the northeast corner of this intersection, traveled further south across Holly and into the yard of a residence at 5229 Holly, striking the house at a high rate of speed and landing near the front door that faced north.

LifeFlight rushed Officer Gaddis to Hermann Hospital, with little hope for his survival. Doctors pronounced him dead at 4:31 a.m., January 31, 1994. He was only twenty-four years old, leaving his pregnant wife Rosa behind.

Besides his wife, the officer was survived his parents, Mr. And Mrs. Edwin (Gayle) Gaddis of Brookside Village; brother Glenn and his wife Angela of Houston; brother Gary and nephew Justyn Gaddis of Brookside; his aunt Patsy Reeves of Shreveport; Uncle Charles Gottlick and wife Maureen of Scotch Plains, New Jersey; aunt Bernadette Lopez and husband George and uncle Russell Gottlick and wife Joyce.

Nevada DMV Says 75% of Illegals Fail Test For Driver Authorization Card … Giving Undocumentated Aliens Documents, UNREAL!!!

What is wrong with the following statement, Illegals failing tests to receive legal drivers authorization cared.

According to the Nevada DMV, about 75% of illegal immigrants, undocumented aliens, people in the United States illegally, have failed the written test needed for a drivers authorization card offered to provide driving privileges to those individuals in the United States illegally. WHAT!!! So not only do we have states that are so misguided that they would provide “ILLEGALS” access to driving privileges that are supposed to be afforded to citizens of the United States, when they do … THE ILLEGALS FAIL. The DMS did not mention how many fail the driving exam. Hmm, I wounder why? Hundreds of illegals swamped DMV offices to get this card, forcing actual citizens of the United States to be turned away. Are the written exams in English or Spanish?

Why are we making it easier for illegals to be in the United States, rather than harder? How insane have we become? We have people that are in the country illegally, but giving them a document stating they can legally drive. Just another head-shaking moment.

Illegals2

They estimate 75 percent of applicants have failed the written test needed for the card under a new law that made the state the 11th nationally to offer driving privileges to people in the country illegally. The cards became available Thursday.

Applicants must correctly answer 80 percent of 50 questions to pass the test. They also are required to pass a driving exam to receive cards. The failure rate on the driving test was not immediately available.

“We’d much rather see people come in prepared than just come in to see if they will pass or not,” DMV spokesman Kevin Malone told KSNV-TV in Las Vegas. “You need to study the (driver’s) handbook, make sure you have all the documentation and then come on in.”

What is wrong with this country? A law passed by the 2013 Legislature and signed by Gov. Brian Sandoval allows immigrants in Nevada without citizenship status to obtain the driver privilege cards. An increasing number of states have been passing similar laws in recent years.

Just curious, if an illegal fails their driving exam does that prevent them from driving on American roads? I men after all, if you are in the country illegally, driving illegally would be a distant thought.

Actor and Martial Arts Expert Steven Seagal Considers a Run for Arizona Governor

Arizona Governor Steven Seagal?

Steven Seagal, the actor and martial arts expert says he is considering a run to be the governor of Arizona. Seagal said in an interview with ABC15 that the number one problem facing America today is open border. The 61 year old actor stated that because of the US open borders “any type of terrorism could come, and does come”.  Seagal had a pretty much common sense and factual approach on his views of borders amnesty and the need to secure our borders. Seagal goes on to discuss his association with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and that when they arrest someone who commits a crime, they do not care whether they are Mexican, Irish, French, German or Chinese.

Seagal says he’s had discussions with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio about the prospective bid, but has other priorities to consider.

The 61-year-old Seagal made the comments while talking about his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County” (The Lost Episodes.)

According to Seagal, the number one problem facing the U.S. is its open borders.

The Daily Mail:

He told ABC that the country’s leading problem today is open borders, ‘I don’t think our biggest problem is Islamist terrorism in America. Oh I don’t think that’s it at all,’ he said. ‘The biggest problem is open borders. I think that across these borders, any type of terrorism can occur.’

He believes that open borders are, ‘ a tremendous oversight by the current administration.’

He quoted Reagan who said, ‘If you don’t have security on your borders you don’t have a country.’

One other issue Seagal would address is that of amnesty.

‘You have to be very careful with blanket pardons,’ he said.If you’re gonna pardon people you should do a background on them to make sure they’re safe for society.’

Seagal also told ABC that all he and Arpaio care about on their tv show is ‘whether or not you’re a criminal.’

He says that he and the tough sheriff do not discriminate based on race or nationality.

Another ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Turns Up at Mexico Shootout Scene … “Weapons from the Operation would Likely continue to turn up at Crime Scenes”

Remember this Barack Obama – Eric Holder scandal …

As Yogi Berra used to say,”It looks like it is deja vu all over again.”  Another gun from the failed Obama/Holder ‘Fast & Furious’ gun-walking fiasco has turned up at a shootout between Mexican authorities and a Mexican drug cartel gunman. According to accounts, at least one AK-47 found at the scene could be tracked back to ‘Fast & Furious’. Isn’t this special, the ATF has acknowledged that more guns from this poorly conceived plan could continue to turn up at future crime scenes. Guns from this disastrous operation will be turning up for years to come, yet no one in the administration has yet been held accountable.

VIDEO – CNN

A gun from the failed U.S. operation known as “Fast and Furious” turned up at the scene of a shootout between Mexican authorities and alleged cartel gunmen last month, according to CNN.

U.S. officials told CNN at least one AK-47-style gun that could be traced back to the failed gun-walking scheme was found at the scene.

The ATF acknowledged that weapons from the operation would likely continue to turn up at crime scenes.

“ATF has accepted responsibility for the mistakes made in the Fast and Furious investigation and at the attorney general’s direction we have taken appropriate and decisive action to ensure that these errors will not be repeated,” the bureau said in a statement to CNN.

“And we acknowledge that, regrettably, firearms related to the Fast and Furious investigation will likely continue to be recovered at future crime scenes,” it added.

Full Statement from ATF:

“ATF has accepted responsibility for the mistakes made in the Fast and Furious investigation and at the attorney general’s direction we have taken appropriate and decisive action to ensure that these errors will not be repeated. And we acknowledge that, regrettably, firearms related to the Fast and Furious investigation will likely continue to be recovered at future crime scenes.”

12 Year Old Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Attempting to Smuggling 80 Pounds of Marijuana from Mexico into Texas … Just More DREAM’ers

Yup, they only want to do the jobs that Americans don’t want to do, make their lives better and especially the innocent children, they just want an American education …

Hmm, one would think that this story may want people to rethink amnesty. The US Border Patrol arrested six Mexicans, two adults, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and the 12-year-old … all illegal immigrants attempting to smuggle marijuana into the United States. In all, they had 300 pounds of pot as the 12 year old mule boy was carrying the heaviest load at 80 pounds. All were returned to Mexico. It would appear that this would add credence to US Rep; Steve King’s assertion that more illegals are drug smugglers than valedictorians.

Drug_Smuggling sign

The U.S. Border Patrol earlier this month arrested a 12-year-old illegal immigrant smuggling 80 pounds of marijuana from Mexico into Texas, reigniting a debate over controversial comments made by a Republican congressman earlier this year about children’s involvement in the cross-border drug trade.

Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican who has called for a crackdown on illegal immigration, had said there were more young illegal immigrants smuggling drugs than there were ones who were valedictorians of their classes in U.S. high schools.

In the Texas incident earlier this month, Border Patrol agents arrested six Mexicans — two adults, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and the 12-year-old — smuggling more than 300 pounds of marijuana.

“They were carrying the marijuana on their backs and when arrested it was discovered that the 12-year-old boy had the heaviest load at 80 pounds,” the Border Patrol said in a statement describing the arrest.

The adults and one of the 17-year-old children were held after the early December incident, but the others — including the 12-year-old — were returned to Mexico, the Border Patrol said.

All returned to Mexico, why didn’t Obama and the Democrats provide them amnesty? There was no mention if any of the illegals caught and arrested were “white” Hispanics.
