  • Montgomery County’s Illegal Alien Crime Wave (Maryland)

    09/21/2019 9:02:40 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 23 replies
    Introduction Montgomery County, Maryland, is experiencing an illegal alien crime wave. In just a little over a month, eight illegal aliens have been charged with committing sex crimes in Montgomery County: - Salvadoran national Rodrigo A. Castro-Montejo was charged with raping an intoxicated woman.[i] - Salvadoran nationals Mauricio Barrera-Navidad and Carlos Palacios-Amaya were charged with serially raping an 11-year-old girl.[ii] - Honduran national Kevin Mendoza was charged with the rape and attempted murder of a Silver Spring, Maryland, woman.[iii] - Nestor Lopez-Guzman was charged with sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl and her brother over a six month period.[iv] - Honduran...
  • Actions of the California State Lawmakers are Loud and Clear: They Hate the Police

    09/10/2019 10:47:53 AM PDT · by jazusamo · 25 replies ^ | September 10, 2019 | Sheriff David Clarke, Ret.
    With the recent passage of two anti-cop pieces of legislation, lawmakers in California proved their utter contempt for the men and women who risk their lives to protect and serve in the Golden State. Cop-hating California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law AB 392, placing even more restrictions on when an officer can use deadly force unless it is “necessary.” It’s as if there are already not enough restrictions codified in law. The standard previously was that of “reasonable” fear of imminent danger to themselves or others, just like currently held in Supreme Court decisions on use of force by...

    A California state appeals court Friday overturned the lone conviction against an undocumented immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015, a case which drew national attention and became a flashpoint in the debate over illegal immigration. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, who was in the U.S. illegally had been deported to his native Mexico five times, was acquitted in November 2017 of first and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. On Friday, the 1st District Court...

    Less than six weeks after Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed into law New York’s so-called “Green Light Bill,” Assembly Bill (AB) 3675, which allows illegal aliens to apply for drivers’ licenses, a second county clerk has stepped forward to sue the state in an attempt to prevent the law from taking effect. On July 24, Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola (R) followed Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns (D) lead and filed suit. Recent polls show a clear majority of New Yorkers are against giving drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens. Rensselaer County Clerk Merola called the Green Light Law a “travesty,”...

    No UN-recommended census question on citizenship, no ending of the arbitrary Obama DACA executive order (which had been rejected in Congress), no measly $6 billion for a border wall to stop a border surge of more than a million expected illegal invaders, no ability to even change one's legal team. The leftist courts up until now have always found merit on the thwart-Trump side, saying yes to any activist request, including the really stupid one from the Sierra Club, with the Supreme Court ruling that yes, the Sierra Club has a right to enjoy its scenery so President Trump can't...

    The Portland Police Bureau said it would not be cooperating with any federal agencies, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement, in potential immigration raids promised by President Donald Trump this weekend, the agency said Sunday. State law prohibits local law enforcement agencies from using “agency moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws." Portland police chief Danielle Outlaw said there were numerous factors causing fear in Oregon’s immigrant communities. "Now more than...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday night signed legislation granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants — shortly after the controversial measure passed the state Senate. Cuomo’s action came despite throwing supporters a last-minute curveball by asking the state’s top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns — threatening to veto it if he didn’t like her assessment. “You could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people,” Cuomo said on WAMC radio. “California passed a law, and they are now in litigation.” But Underwood’s boss, Attorney General Tish...

    In other parts of the country, they’re fighting about whether to build a border wall or whether to deport asylum seekers. But here in California we’re having an entirely different type of debate. When Gov. Gavin Newsom’s budget proposed expanding health coverage to all undocumented immigrants up to age 26, his fiercest criticism came from those who felt his proposal was not nearly ambitious enough.

    A Massachusetts judge has left court in tears after being indicted on obstruction of justice charges for allegedly helping an illegal immigrant evade immigration officials. Judge Shelley M Richmond Joseph and trial court officer Wesley MacGregor are accused of conspiring to prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from taking an undocumented immigrant into custody at Newton District Court on April 2, 2018. Joseph had allegedly ordered the courtroom recording device to be turned off for 52 seconds while she and the defendant Jose Medina-Perez's lawyer had a conversation about getting him out of the courthouse instead of handing him over...

    LUCAS COUNTY, OH-A traffic stop in Ohio yesterday led to the arrest of an illegal alien from the sanctuary of state of New Jersey. Ohio State Trooper Mitch Ross pulled over a vehicle for a routine traffic stop when he noticed a young girl with a man. Neither of them spoke English or had identification. Luckily for the girl, Ohio is not a sanctuary state and the officer was able to determine the driver was an illegal alien. Ross was also able to determine that the child was in his police database as a missing person from New Jersey. Police...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Friday ordered that the Mississippi flag, which carries a Confederate emblem, be replaced by the American flag at a state park that overlooks the Statue of Liberty. Murphy ordered the removal of Mississippi’s flag from a display of each state’s flag at Liberty State Park, a preserve of more than 1,200 acres in Jersey City that overlooks Ellis Island and Lady Liberty. Murphy is a first-term Democrat and a self-styled progressive who regularly cited the Emma Lazarus poem at the statue’s base that invites immigrants to America. New Jersey, he said, is rooted in...

    Getting a paycheck for doing nothing could be in the future for residents of New Jersey’s largest city. Newark Mayor Ras Baraka says the city is going to study a pilot program to provide a universal basic income, or basically guaranteeing income for all residents whether they have a job. […] The city has launched a taskforce to see if the program is feasible with help from the Economic Security Project and the Jain Institute. […] There has not been a successful long-term Universal Basic Income program. A small basic-income program that was tested in Finland was ended after one...

    An immigration enforcement advocacy organization finds it difficult to understand why the citizens of California continue to elect politicians who protect illegal immigrants who commit serious crimes like murder. Authorities in Northern California are criticizing "sanctuary" policies they say prevented federal authorities from detaining a gang member in the country illegally before he allegedly killed a woman inside her home. An Associated Press report quotes the chief of police in San Jose saying Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza stalked Bambi Larson's neighborhood before allegedly beating and stabbing her to death. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had previously asked to take custody of...

    WANAQUE, N.J. — Some students at a New Jersey high school are upset that they won’t be able to make a grand entrance by taking limousines and luxury cars to their prom. Lakeland Regional High School administrators sent a letter to parents this week stating that prom attendees must take school-provided and chaperoned coach buses to and from the venue in June. Schools Superintendent Hugh Beattie says it’s a matter of safety and equity...

    A man caught on body camera footage attempting to kill a California sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop this week had been deported three times before, but local officials had shielded him from ICE in recent years. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they had lodged four separate “detainer” requests asking local authorities to hold Javier Hernandez-Morales for pickup after he’d been booked for local charges at California jails. Each request was refused, leaving him out on the streets on Sunday, when he tried to kill Napa County Sheriff’s Deputy Riley Jarecki. “This incident may have been prevented if...

    Identical Democratic proposals introduced in the New Mexico House and Senate say state agencies would be barred from cooperating with federal immigration authorities seeking to hold or deport immigrants suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. The authority of sheriffs and jails to hold federal immigrant detainees also would see new limits. In addition, state agencies couldn’t use public funds to help federal authorities in “detecting, apprehending, arresting, detaining or prolonging the detention of a person” facing possible deportation.

    A valleywide manhunt lasting about 55 hours came to a sudden end Friday morning with the arrest of the man authorities say shot and killed a 33-year-old Newman Police Department corporal. Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, was arrested in the small town of Lamont, just east of Bakersfield and about 200 miles from where he’s suspected of killing Cpl. Ronil Singh after a traffic stop early Wednesday morning in east Newman. Arriaga was on his way to Mexico, said Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson at a noon news conference Friday in Modesto as several of Singh’s grieving family members, along with...

    The illegal immigrant wanted by California cops for the murder of one of their own may have connections to a Mexican-American street gang, according to an image circulating on social media confirmed as authentic by investigators. The Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department – which is leading the investigation into the killing of Newman Police Cpl. Ronil Singh – posted the image, and several others, on its Twitter account early Friday morning. “We can confirm these are pictures of the man who murdered Corporal Ronil Singh,” the department said. “We CANNOT, however, confirm that the correct name or birth date is being...
