Justice Dept. Opens New Asylum Gate For Guatemalans

The Department of Justice’s board of immigration appeals has decided to let Guatemalan women win asylum in the United States if they claim to be victims of domestic violence.

The decision creates a huge new incentive for Guatemalan women to cross the U.S. border, because if their asylum claim is accepted, their children get U.S. citizenship, plus the use of federal health, education and retirement programs, regardless of their initial education and work skills.

The new decision also means that many of the Guatemalan women who have already crossed the border this year have a new claim for asylum.

How do we apply for an emergency restraining order?

Just one component of the engineered deconstruction of our once great Republic.

Disturbing to see the Republican’s standing idly by as the dismantling occurs.

They stood by and did nothing between 2000 & 2006 too, when they had control of the House, Senate and WH, which is why I won't vote for another.

NYT editorial yesterday called for deported women with children to be returned to the United States if it’s found that they did not have adequate legal representation. I almost posted as a Barfatorial but it was too disgusting to even copy.

Good grief is right. If you’re an American citizen and file a claim of domestic violence, you get the run-around which includes filing a PPO (your “asylum”), which isn’t worth the paper its written on. I swear, the non-citizens in this country now have MORE effing rights and benefits than we do, thanks to the jug-eared, purple-lipped, flying Fraudster-in-Chief. Two more years of his community campaigning crap? Spare me.

They did worse than nothing under GW Bush. He and the R Senate pushed for amnesty worse than liberals do. Only the R House stopped it. Ironic. That House had some heroes and patriots.

What evidence of being a “victim” of domestic violence are they going to have to provide? Are we just going to take their lyingass word for it?

Yes, we’ll take their word for it (and let them in even if we know they are lying). In a global economy a country of 300+ million is a small fish compared to the two Asian giants of 1 billion+, and since Americans won’t produce another generation we’ll traffic one from the wilds to the south of our border. We need people to fill housing, classrooms, and malls, and we’ll do whatever it takes to get them...

This looks like a ‘redistribution of wealth’ via bringing them here rather than hand over the revenues to the country leadership to distribute. Immigration being the instrument of “war” so to speak.

Whomever is pulling the strings on our country are not wasting any time......it can hardly be denied it’s all to weaken us abroad...and right here as well.

....”What evidence of being a “victim” of domestic violence are they going to have to provide? Are we just going to take their lyingass word for it?”.....

None I would imagine...this is only to justify bringing them in to American citizens as the reason. It doesn’t have to be more because nothing can stop this now....there’s no pushback.

Even Poroshenko has said Russian Troops working ‘With’ the rebels....not that it’s an invasion..on his web site.

But who knows anymore what’s really happening there? It remains a clustered mess and likely won’t be done with any time soon regardless of “the talks”.

I’m more concerned with how many American troops are on the ground in Syria...where ISIS just killed 120 Syrian soldiers.

It might have started out as “working with the rebels” but you see it go from the rebel pockets collapsing to the front moving a hundred west in a day or two and you know something has changed.

I would not send troops to Syria, which side do you want to turn your backs to? neither!

Become familiar with the program Special Immigrant Juveniles Status (SIJS), under the Immigration program that covers anyone under age of 21 that is abused, abandoned, or neglected and cannot be united with at least one parent. They are granted PERMANENT RESIDENCY STATUS. Our wonderful Congress took a federal issue and directed STATE juvenile courts to make factual findings to establish eligibility. Yep, those judges are raking in some dough! Looks like the poor mamas felt too isolated, so now they are covered. SOBs!!!

Holy Shiite....

Tell you what. Send the Department of JustUs down to the Guatemalan border and have them sign them up there and at the same time put a air drop issuing a bounty on the people taking the applications.

That should slow things down, IMO.....

It should be obvious to the casual observer that things are going EXACTLY as desired by the NCA. Our country is on a course 180° to that established by the Founding Fathers. It is headed down hill fast and accelerating with all the force the rulers can muster. The President and his minons serve Baal and ignore the law. Congress does absolutely nothing. The states do absolutely nothing. State and Federal laws are all ignored by those in power. The government is outlawing reference to God so they can be the ultimate authority and arbiter of good and bad, right and wrong. We turn our back on our allies and fund those who would destroy us and them. We encourage the migration of people who destroyed their country and now intend to destroy ours. We given them free everything and won’t even fund morphine for our dying veterans. And, to those who feign surprise, to quote that old cowboy, “You’re a special kind of stupid, aren’t you?”

NTL REVIEW/DAVID HANSON----The Boston Bomber Tsarnaev brothers offer us a teachable moment about what has become near-suicidal US immigration policies. The sap-happy government cannot assure the public that it is now enforcing immigration laws already on the books,

(1) that foreign nationals must at least avoid criminal activity,

(2) that foreigners must stay off public assistance,

(3) that the US govt is disinclined to grant "asylum" (means a free ride on the US gravy train and endless SS payments) to “fearful refugees” from war-torn Islamic regions,

(4) on-the-book govt mandates that force struggling taxpayers to foot the bill for the refugees to go back and forth between America and their supposedly hostile homelands on the taxpayers' dime.

Former Guatemala Prez used US banks to launder millions (was elected to "redistribute" nation's wealth)

An ex-president of Guatemala faced charges in NY that he used US banks to launder millions looted from his impoverished nation. Alfonso Portillo took office in 2000 pledging to redistribute Guatemala’s wealth.

Portillo, 61, allegedly ran scams to drain the impoverished country's coffers. The feds say Portillo embezzled about $2.5M provided by the Taiwanese embassy....$1.5 million was earmarked for “Libraries for Peace”....books for school kids.

Portillo personally endorsed three, $500,000 checks issued against an account at the Intl Bank of China in Manhattan, then deposited the cash in the Miami bank account of a Guatemalan bank controlled by “a close associate and political supporter” .....the money was funneled to bank accounts in Paris in the names of Portillo’s ex-wife and daughter.

Portillo swindled nearly $4M defense funds ...and plundered the national bank run by his alleged co-conspirator through overdrafts financed by public reserves -- stolen money paid for expensive watches and cars, for himself and his associates, according to the indictment. (NY POST 5/28/13)

=========================================

WIKI The Guatemalan population at the 2010 Census was 1,044,209. Guatemalans are the fifth largest Hispanic group in the United States and the second largest Central American population, after Salvadorans. Half of the Guatemalan population is situated in two parts of the country, the Northeast and Southern California.

Along with other Central Americans such as Costa Ricans, they first arrived by way of Mexico and settled in urban areas like Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Houston, New York City and San Francisco.

The intensification of the Guatemalan Civil War during the 1970s and 1980s led to an influx of tens of thousands of Guatemalan refugees into the United States via Mexico, via both legal and illegal means. Guatemalan refugees became an important political and economic influence on seeking an end to their homeland's civil war, which finally came about in 1996.

They also organized to change policies of the Mexican government in dealing with Guatemalan immigrants' legal status, their experience in Mexico, and difficulties of Guatemalans in Mexico immigrating to the US.

Half of the Guatemplan population is situated in two parts of the country, the Northeast and Southern California. A combined population of 267,335 resides in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. The Northeast megalopolis, extending from Northern Virginia to north of Boston is home to a population of 257,729 Guatemalans. Cities such as Langley Park, Maryland, Trenton, New Jersey, Stamford, Connecticut, Providence, Rhode Island, and Lynn, Massachusetts have significant concentrations of Guatemalans along the corridor.

States with more largest Guatemalans population The 10 states with the largest population of Guatemalans (Source: 2010 Census):
California - 332,737
Florida - 83,882
New York - 73,806
Texas - 66,244
New Jersey - 48,869
Georgia - 36,874
Illinois - 35,321
Maryland - 34,491
Virginia - 33,556
Massachusetts - 32,812
