State Explores Flexing Legal Muscles on Immigration

Crafted carefully, state laws can be written that would allow Texas to crack down on undocumented immigrants and illegal border crossers without running afoul of the U.S. Constitution, a state attorney told lawmakers recently.

In at least one case, he said, it's already happened.

The guidance comes as Republican lawmakers continue accusing the Obama administration of failing to secure the border, citing the recent influx of undocumented immigrants from Central America into the Rio Grande Valley. The issue was thrust back into the spotlight on Tuesday when Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas National Guard to stay in the Rio Grande Valley despite earlier plans to end its deployment this month.

During a House State Affairs committee hearing last week on border security and immigration, Texas Deputy Attorney General Brantley Starr told lawmakers they have more options than they might think to flex state legal muscle in the traditionally federal realm of immigration enforcement.
Although the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that “foreign policy and related matters, such as immigration, are one of the few enumerated powers the federal government has,” Starr said states do have some room to work.

“You do have the ability to create state-level offenses that have an immigration element to them as long as they are sufficiently unique,” he said, citing House Bill 11, the Legislature’s 2015 omnibus border security bill.

The bill, signed by Abbott in June, made it a state felony to smuggle someone into the country for pay. Starr said he believes the bill would stand up to a court challenge on Constitutional grounds if one were brought. (There is no current challenge, the attorney general’s office confirmed.)
“There were new state-level elements to that offense [in] that you’re taking money in exchange for bringing someone across the border illegally,” he said. “And the addition of the new state-level elements to that offense made it sufficiently unique.”

The new laws are already helping state police apprehend alleged criminals that federal agents might let go, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw told the committee.

Border Patrol agents and state troopers recently came across a stash house for undocumented immigrants, for instance, where eight people, including two pregnant women, were being held against their will, McGraw said. Because the state had jurisdiction in its own right, state police could make the arrests.

“With Border Patrol and the U.S. Attorney’s office, it was too low under their threshold,” he said. “[The state] can go to the district attorney’s office and say, ‘Wait a minute,’ and the district attorney took that offense.”

Starr also said he believes state lawmakers can pass a bill outlawing "sanctuary cities" that would withstand a court challenge. The Supreme Court upheld one of four provisions of a controversial Arizona law, SB 1070, dubbed the “show me your papers” bill, allowing police to ask a person if they were in the country legally, Starr said.

But it didn’t take away the power of the federal government to deport the person, which is why it wasn't struck down.

“That law survived because it could be implemented in a way that ultimately left discretion to the federal government to detain that person and remove them from the country,” he said.

Starr said that an essential element to a Texas "sanctuary cities" bill would be carving out an exception for school districts because the Supreme Court has already ruled that students cannot be questioned about their immigration status. The school exception was included in the state's 2011 proposal that failed to make it to former Gov. Rick Perry's desk.

Jacqueline Watson, the president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association’s Texas chapter, warned the committee the issue isn't as simple as the state made it seem.

“This opinion does not foreclose other pre-emption and constitutional challenges to the law,” she said.

She said the Arizona bill shouldn’t be seen as a blueprint or viewed as a license for officers to stop a person solely on immigration matters.

"A state officer is required to make reasonable attempts to determine the immigration status of any person they stop, detain or arrest on some other legitimate basis if reasonable suspicion believes that the person is an alien and is unlawfully present in the United States," she said.

We understand that Hispanics groups (financed by Mr. Soros) will work to add a million voters to the rolls:

HILLARY CLINTON HAS HAD A LONG HISTORY OF HISPANDERING FOR THE ILLEGALS' VOTES!

In 2008, Hispanics were a major factor in giving then-senator Obama the keys to the White House.

So they are going to enroll a million Hispanics to vote?

We understand that Hispanics groups (financed by Mr. Soros) will work to add a million voters to the rolls: 
Immigrant rights activists have vowed to sign up 1 million immigrants — mostly Mexicans — for citizenship and then quickly register them to vote in time to punish Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans at the polls in November for their harsh rhetoric.
 
The advocates say the new voters could make a difference in the presidential race, where most of the Republican field has tacked to the right in word and policy, and in key Senate races in Illinois and Florida, where Republicans will be reaching to hang on to critical seats.
 
So Hispanics are once again going to show up and vote Democrat?  How has that worked out over the years?  
In 2008, Hispanics were a major factor in giving then-senator Obama the keys to the White House.  He walked into the presidency with 60 votes in the U.S. Senate and a nice majority in the House.

Again, how did that work out?  "No muy bien," or not very well.  Democrat majorities did not pass immigration reform or the DREAM Act, as President Obama promised.

Anyway, the idea is to enroll Hispanics to punish Mr. Trump.

I agree that Mr. Trump often speaks too broadly, whether he is talking about criminals crossing the U.S.-Mexico border or keeping Muslims out of the country for a while.

To be fair, Mr. Trump has identified problems, but his solutions are not sensible, such as shipping back 11 million illegal immigrants.  How is he going to do that?

So it's understandable that some Hispanics are offended.  Most of the illegals in the U.S. are not rapists or criminals.  They are here because someone is hiring them, and the immigration authorities are not going after the employers.

At the same time, shouldn't Hispanics be equally offended with President Obama and Democrats?  After all, what's worse?  A party that tells you what you want to hear to get your vote, or a guy who speaks before thinking through what he says?

They are both bad.  

Last but not least, maybe Hispanics should punish Democrats by considering alternatives to a straight party voting.  Why don't they try that first?

Amnesty Activists Launch Campaign to Naturalize Immigrants, Register Them to Vote

 

Amnesty activists are engaged in a new effort to encourage immigrants in the U.S. to naturalize and register to vote.

The Latino Victory Foundation and the National Partnership for New Americans launched the New American Democracy Campaign this week in an effort to increase immigrant participation in elections.

The government estimates there are about 8.8 million legal permanent residents who are eligible to apply for naturalization. According to the groups that launched the NADC Thursday, their goal is to increase the rate of naturalization in 2016 by 38 percent so that 1 million immigrants to become citizens next year.

Once citizens, NADC plans to assist the newly eligible with voter registration. Additionally the group will be encouraging the citizen children of immigrants to register and vote as well.

NADC organizers cited the recent political rhetoric as a mobilizing factor that compels those immigrants — and Latinos in particular — who are eligible to vote.

“Our community is under attack and our future is at stake,” Cristóbal J. Alex, Latino Victory Foundation president, said in a statement. “Now more than ever it’s important that those who are able to naturalize do so and make their voices heard at the polls. Research shows that newly naturalized Latino respondents have a high propensity to vote—67 percent voted at least once and 84 percent registered to vote.”

The organization has a goal of engaging with 750,000 immigrants eligible to naturalize and assisting 98,000 with their naturalization applications as well as registering 45,400 naturalized immigrants to vote.

“Latinos and all immigrants need to use all of their power to defend their communities in this toxic political moment. That means naturalizing, registering and turning out to vote. The time is now,” Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the National Partnership for New Americans, added.

According to the groups, they will “be heard” even if only 20 percent of the 8.8 million eligible legal permanent residents, 1.9 million citizen children of immigrants, and the 11.5 million Latino voters who did not turn out to vote show up to the polls.

In conjunction with its launch the campaign released a video using audio from GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Stopping the Flow of Illegal Immigrants

 National Review Online, November 13, 2015

Estimates from the Center for Migration Studies and the Pew

Research Center show that, of the 11 million illegal


immigrants currently residing in the United States,

approximately 2.5 million arrived after Barack Obama’s

inauguration. Yet the overall number of illegal immigrants in

the country has remained fairly static, meaning that illegal

immigrants have been coming and going in about equal

numbers. Why? Because, contrary to much political rhetoric,

many illegal immigrants are not here to stay, and so are very

sensitive to incentives: When the prospect of profitable work

outweighs the risk of falling afoul of law enforcement, they

come; when it doesn’t, they leave.

. . .
It is crucial, though, that we end the flow of illegal

immigrants across our borders before dealing with those

already here — otherwise, an amnesty will inevitably only

draw the next population of illegal immigrants. To that end, a

Republican administration should, among other things, seek

to erect physical barriers along the southern border, end

catch-and-release policies, and work with Congress to defund

sanctuary cities.


Only after enforcement measures such as E-Verify are fully

implemented and the illegal population has been actually

declining should any other major measures be considered.

We’re always told that it is urgent to bring illegal immigrants

“out of the shadows.” But the plight of illegal immigrants is

no more urgent now than it was a few years ago, or a few

years before that.

Hispanic Family Values?

Runaway illegitimacy is creating a new U.S. underclass.

   Autumn 2006 
Unless the life chances of children raised by single mothers suddenly improve, the explosive growth of the U.S. Hispanic population over the next couple of decades does not bode well for American social stability. Hispanic immigrants bring near–Third World levels of fertility to America, coupled with what were once thought to be First World levels of illegitimacy. (In fact, family breakdown is higher in many Hispanic countries than here.) Nearly half of the children born to Hispanic mothers in the U.S. are born out of wedlock, a proportion that has been increasing rapidly with no signs of slowing down. Given what psychologists and sociologists now know about the much higher likelihood of social pathology among those who grow up in single-mother households, the Hispanic baby boom is certain to produce more juvenile delinquents, more school failure, more welfare use, and more teen pregnancy in the future.

The government social-services sector has already latched onto this new client base; as the Hispanic population expands, so will the demands for a larger welfare state. Since conservative open-borders advocates have yet to acknowledge the facts of Hispanic family breakdown, there is no way to know what their solution to it is. But they had better come up with one quickly, because the problem is here—and growing.

The dimensions of the Hispanic baby boom are startling. The Hispanic birthrate is twice as high as that of the rest of the American population. That high fertility rate—even more than unbounded levels of immigration—will fuel the rapid Hispanic population boom in the coming decades. By 2050, the Latino population will have tripled, the Census Bureau projects. One in four Americans will be Hispanic by mid-century, twice the current ratio. In states such as California and Texas, Hispanics will be in the clear majority. Nationally, whites will drop from near 70 percent of the total population in 2000 to just half by 2050. Hispanics will account for 46 percent of the nation’s added population over the next two decades, the Pew Hispanic Center reports.

But it’s the fertility surge among unwed Hispanics that should worry policymakers. Hispanic women have the highest unmarried birthrate in the country—over three times that of whites and Asians, and nearly one and a half times that of black women, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women bore 92 children in 2003 (the latest year for which data exist), compared with 28 children for every 1,000 unmarried white women, 22 for every 1,000 unmarried Asian women, and 66 for every 1,000 unmarried black women. Forty-five percent of all Hispanic births occur outside of marriage, compared with 24 percent of white births and 15 percent of Asian births. Only the percentage of black out-of-wedlock births—68 percent—exceeds the Hispanic rate. But the black population is not going to triple over the next few decades.

As if the unmarried Hispanic birthrate weren’t worrisome enough, it is increasing faster than among other groups. It jumped 5 percent from 2002 to 2003, whereas the rate for other unmarried women remained flat. Couple the high and increasing illegitimacy rate of Hispanics with their higher overall fertility rate, and you have a recipe for unstoppable family breakdown.

The only bright news in this demographic disaster story concerns teen births. Overall teen childbearing in the U.S. declined for the 12th year in a row in 2003, having dropped by more than a third since 1991. Yet even here, Hispanics remain a cause for concern. The rate of childbirth for Mexican teenagers, who come from by far the largest and fastest-growing immigrant population, greatly outstrips every other group. The Mexican teen birthrate is 93 births per every 1,000 girls, compared with 27 births for every 1,000 white girls, 17 births for every 1,000 Asian girls, and 65 births for every 1,000 black girls. To put these numbers into international perspective, Japan’s teen birthrate is 3.9, Italy’s is 6.9, and France’s is 10. Even though the outsize U.S. teen birthrate is dropping, it continues to inflict unnecessary costs on the country, to which Hispanics contribute disproportionately.

To grasp the reality behind those numbers, one need only talk to people working on the front lines of family breakdown. Social workers in Southern California, the national epicenter for illegal Hispanic immigrants and their progeny, are in despair over the epidemic of single parenting. Not only has illegitimacy become perfectly acceptable, they say, but so has the resort to welfare and social services to cope with it.

Dr. Ana Sanchez delivers babies at St. Joseph’s Hospital in the city of Orange, California, many of them to Hispanic teenagers. To her dismay, they view having a child at their age as normal. A recent patient just had her second baby at age 17; the baby’s father is in jail. But what is “most alarming,” Sanchez says, is that the “teens’ parents view having babies outside of marriage as normal, too. A lot of the grandmothers are single as well; they never married, or they had successive partners. So the mom sends the message to her daughter that it’s okay to have children out of wedlock.”

Sanchez feels almost personally involved in the problem: “I’m Hispanic myself. I wish I could find out what the Asians are doing right.” She guesses that Asian parents’ passion for education inoculates their children against teen pregnancy and the underclass trap. “Hispanics are not picking that up like the Asian kids,” she sighs.

Conservatives who support open borders are fond of invoking “Hispanic family values” as a benefit of unlimited Hispanic immigration. Marriage is clearly no longer one of those family values. But other kinds of traditional Hispanic values have survived—not all of them necessarily ideal in a modern economy, however. One of them is the importance of having children early and often. “It’s considered almost a badge of honor for a young girl to have a baby,” says Peggy Schulze of Chrysalis House, an adoption agency in Fresno. (Fresno has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in California, typical of the state’s heavily Hispanic farm districts.) It is almost impossible to persuade young single Hispanic mothers to give up their children for adoption, Schulze says. “The attitude is: ‘How could you give away your baby?’ I don’t know how to break through.”

The most powerful Hispanic family value—the tight-knit extended family—facilitates unwed child rearing. A single mother’s relatives often step in to make up for the absence of the baby’s father. I asked Mona, a 19-year-old parishioner at St. Joseph’s Church in Santa Ana, California, if she knew any single mothers. She laughed: “There are so many I can’t even name them.” Two of her cousins, aged 25 and 19, have children without having husbands. The situation didn’t seem to trouble this churchgoer too much. “They’ll be strong enough to raise them. It’s totally okay with us,” she said. “We’re very close; we’re there to support them. They’ll do just fine.”

As Mona’s family suggests, out-of-wedlock child rearing among Hispanics is by no means confined to the underclass. The St. Joseph’s parishioners are precisely the churchgoing, blue-collar workers whom open-borders conservatives celebrate. Yet this community is as susceptible as any other to illegitimacy. Fifty-year-old Irma and her husband, Rafael, came legally from Mexico in the early 1970s. Rafael works in a meatpacking plant in Brea; they have raised five husky boys who attend church with them. Yet Irma’s sister—a homemaker like herself, also married to a factory hand—is now the grandmother of two illegitimate children, one by each daughter. “I saw nothing in the way my sister and her husband raised her children to explain it,” Irma says. “She gave them everything.” One of the fathers of Irma’s young nieces has four other children by a variety of different mothers. His construction wages are being garnished for child support, but he is otherwise not involved in raising his children.

The fathers of these illegitimate children are often problematic in even more troubling ways. Social workers report that the impregnators of younger Hispanic women are with some regularity their uncles, not necessarily seen as a bad thing by the mother’s family. Alternatively, the father may be the boyfriend of the girl’s mother, who then continues to stay with the grandmother. Older men seek out young girls in the belief that a virgin cannot get pregnant during her first intercourse, and to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.

The tradition of starting families young and expand- ing them quickly can come into conflict with more modern American mores. Ron Storm, the director of the Hillview Acres foster-care home in Chino, tells of a 15-year-old girl who was taken away from the 21-year-old father of her child by a local child-welfare department. The boyfriend went to jail, charged with rape. But the girl’s parents complained about the agency’s interference, and eventually both the girl and her boyfriend ended up going back to Mexico, presumably to have more children. “At 15, as the Quinceañera tradition celebrates, you’re considered ready for marriage,” says Storm. Or at least for childbearing; the marriage part is disappearing.

But though older men continue to take advantage of younger women, the age gap between the mother and the father of an illegitimate child is quickly closing. Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties tries to teach young fathers to take responsibility for their children. “We’re seeing a lot more 13- and 14-year-old fathers,” says Kathleen Collins, v.p. of health education. The day before we spoke, Scott Montoya, an Orange County sheriff’s deputy, arrested two 14-year-old boys who were bragging about having sexual relations with a cafeteria worker from an Olive Garden restaurant. “It’s now all about getting girls pregnant when you’re age 15,” he says. One 18-year-old in the Planned Parenthood fathers’ program has two children by two different girls and is having sex with five others, says health worker Jason Warner. “A lot of [the adolescent sexual behavior] has to do with getting respect from one’s peers,” observes Warner.

Normally, the fathers, of whatever age, take off. “The father may already be married or in prison or doing drugs,” says Amanda Gan, director of operations for Toby’s House, a maternity home in Dana Point, California. Mona, the 19-year-old parishioner at St. Joseph’s Church, says that the boys who impregnated her two cousins are “nowhere to be found.” Her family knows them but doesn’t know if they are working or in jail.

Two teen mothers at the Hillview Acres home represent the outer edge of Hispanic family dysfunction. Yet many aspects of their lives are typical. Though these teenagers’ own mothers were unusually callous and irresponsible, the social milieu in which they were raised is not unusual.
Irene’s round, full face makes her look younger than her 14 years, certainly too young to be a mother. But her own mother’s boyfriend repeatedly forced sex on her, with the mother’s acquiescence. The result was Irene’s baby, Luz. Baby Luz has an uncle her own age, Irene’s new 13-month-old brother. Like Irene, Irene’s mother had her first child at 14, and produced five more over the next 16 years, all of whom went into foster care. Irene’s father committed suicide before she was old enough to know him. The four fathers of her siblings are out of the picture, too: one of them, the father of her seven-year-old brother and five-year-old sister, was deported back to Mexico after he showed up drunk for a visit with his children, in violation of his probation conditions.

Irene is serene and articulate—remarkably so, considering that in her peripatetic early life in Orange County she went to school maybe twice a week. She likes to sing and to read books that are sad, she says, especially books by Dave Pelzer, a child-abuse victim who has published three best-selling memoirs about his childhood trauma. She says she will never get married: “I don’t want another man in my life. I don’t want that experience again.”

Eighteen-year-old Jessica at least escaped rape, but her family experiences were bad enough. The large-limbed young woman, whose long hair is pulled back tightly from her heart-shaped face, grew up in the predominantly Hispanic farming community of Indio in the Coachella Valley. She started “partying hard” in fifth grade, she says—at around the same time that her mother, separated from her father, began using drugs and going clubbing. By the eighth grade, Jessica and her mother were drinking and smoking marijuana together. Jessica’s family had known her boyfriend’s family since she was four; when she had her first child by him—she was 14 and he was 21—her mother declared philosophically that she had always known that it would happen. “It was okay with her, so long as he continued to give her drugs.”

Jessica originally got pregnant to try to clean up her life, she says. “I knew what I was doing was not okay, so having a baby was a way for me to stop doing what I was doing. In that sense, the baby was planned.” She has not used drugs since her first pregnancy, though she occasionally drinks. After her daughter was born, she went to live with her boyfriend in a filthy trailer without plumbing; they scrounged food from dumpsters, despite the income from his illegal drug business. They planned to get married, but by the time she got pregnant again with a son, “We were having a lot of problems. We’d be holding hands, and he’d be looking at other girls. I didn’t want him to touch me.”

Eventually, the county welfare agency removed her and put her in foster care with her two children.
Both Jessica and her caddish former boyfriend illustrate the evanescence of the celebrated Hispanic “family values.” Her boyfriend’s family could not be more traditional. Two years ago, Jessica went back to Mexico to celebrate her boyfriend’s parents’ 25th wedding anniversary and the renewal of their wedding vows. Jessica’s own mother got married at 15 to her father, who was ten years her senior. Her father would not let his wife work; she was a “stay-at-home wife,” Jessica says. But don’t blame the move to the U.S. for the behavior of younger generations; the family crack-up is happening even faster in Latin America.

Jessica’s mother may have been particularly negligent, but Jessica’s experiences are not so radically different from those of her peers. “Everybody’s having babies now,” she says. “The Coachella Valley is filled with girls’ pregnancies. Some girls live with their babies’ dads; they consider them their husbands.” These cohabiting relationships rarely last, however, and a new cohort of fatherless children goes out into the world.

Despite the strong family support, the prevalence of single parenting among Hispanics is producing the inevitable slide into the welfare system. “The girls aren’t marrying the guys, so they are married to the state,” Dr. Sanchez observes. Hispanics now dominate the federal Women, Infants, and Children free food program; Hispanic enrollment grew over 25 percent from 1996 to 2002, while black enrollment dropped 12 percent and white enrollment dropped 6.5 percent. Illegal immigrants can get WIC and other welfare programs for their American-born children. If Congress follows President Bush’s urging and grants amnesty to most of the 11 million illegal aliens in the country today, expect the welfare rolls to skyrocket as the parents themselves become eligible.

Amy Braun works for Mary’s Shelter, a home for young single mothers who are homeless or in crisis, in Orange County, California. It has become “culturally okay” for the Hispanic population to use the shelter and welfare system, Braun says. A case manager at a program for pregnant homeless women in the city of Orange observes the same acculturation to the social-services sector, with its grievance mongering and sense of victimhood. “I’ll have women in my office on their fifth child, when the others have already been placed in foster care,” says Anita Berry of Casa Teresa. “There’s nothing shameful about having multiple children that you can’t care for, and to be pregnant again, because then you can blame the system.”

The consequences of family breakdown are now being passed down from one generation to the next, in an echo of the black underclass. “The problems are deeper and wider,” says Berry. “Now you’re getting the second generation of foster care and group home residents. The dysfunction is multigenerational.”

The social-services complex has responded with barely concealed enthusiasm to this new flood of clients. As Hispanic social problems increase, so will the government sector that ministers to them. In July, a New York Times editorial, titled young latinas and a cry for help, pointed out the elevated high school dropout rates and birthrates among Hispanic girls. A quarter of all Latinas are mothers by the age of 20, reported the Times. With the usual melodrama that accompanies the pitch for more government services, the Times designated young Latinas as “endangered” in the same breath that it disclosed that they are one of the fastest-growing segments of the population. “The time to help is now,” said the Times—by which it means ratcheting up the taxpayer-subsidized social-work industry.
In response to the editorial, Carmen Barroso, regional director of International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region, proclaimed in a letter to the editor the “urgent need for health care providers, educators and advocates to join the sexual and reproductive health movement to ensure the fundamental right to services for young Latinas.”

Wherever these “fundamental rights” might come from, Barroso’s call nevertheless seems quite superfluous, since there is no shortage of taxpayer-funded “services” for troubled Latinas—or Latinos. The schools in California’s San Joaquin Valley have day care for their students’ babies, reports Peggy Schulze of Chrysalis House. “The girls get whatever they need—welfare, medical care.” Advocates for young unwed moms in New York’s South Bronx are likewise agitating for more day-care centers in high schools there, reports El Diario/La Prensa. A bill now in Congress, the Latina Adolescent Suicide Prevention Act, aims to channel $10 million to “culturally competent” social agencies to improve the self-esteem of Latina girls and to provide “support services” to their families and friends if they contemplate suicide.

The trendy “case management” concept, in which individual “cases” become the focal point around which a solar system of social workers revolves, has even reached heavily Hispanic elementary and middle schools. “We have a coordinator, who brings in a collaboration of agencies to deal with the issues that don’t allow a student to meet his academic goals, such as domestic violence or drugs,” explains Sylvia Rentria, director of the Family Resource Center at Berendo Middle School in Los Angeles. “We can provide individual therapy.” Rentria offers the same program at nearby Hoover Elementary School for up to 100 students.

This July, Rentria launched a new session of Berendo’s Violence Intervention Program for parents of children who are showing signs of gang involvement and other antisocial behavior. Ghady M., 55 and a “madre soltera” (single mother), like most of the mothers in the program, has been called in because her 16-year-old son, Christian, has been throwing gang signs at school, cutting half his classes, and ending up in the counseling office every day. The illegal Guatemalan is separated from her partner, who was “muy malo,” she says; he was probably responsible for her many missing teeth. (The detectives in the heavily Hispanic Rampart Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, which includes the Berendo school, spend inordinate amounts of time on domestic violence cases.)

Though Ghady used to work in a factory on

Broadway in downtown L.A.— often referred to

as Little Mexico City—she now collects $580 in

welfare payments and $270 in food stamps for her

two American-born children.

Christian is a husky smart aleck in a big white T-shirt; his fashionably pomaded hair stands straight up. He goes to school but doesn’t do homework, he grins; and though he is not in a gang, he says, he has friends who are. Keeping Ghady and Christian company at the Violence Intervention Program is Ghady’s grandniece, Carrie, a lively ten-year-old. Carrie lives with her 26-year-old mother but does not know her father, who also sired her 12-year-old brother. Her five-year-old brother has a different father.
Yet for all these markers of social dysfunction, fatherless Hispanic families differ from the black underclass in one significant area: many of the mothers and the absent fathers work, even despite growing welfare use. The former boyfriend of Jessica, the 18-year-old mother at the Hillview Acres foster home, works in construction and moonlights on insulation jobs; whether he still deals drugs is unknown. Jessica is postponing joining her father in Texas until she finishes high school, because once she moves in with him, she will feel obligated to get a job to help the family finances. The mother of Hillview’s 14-year-old Irene used to fix soda machines in Anaheim, California, though she got fired because she was lazy, Irene says. Now, under court compulsion, she works in a Lunchables factory in Santa Ana, a condition of getting her children back from foster care. The 18-year-old Lothario and father of two, whom Planned Parenthood’s Jason Warner is trying to counsel, works at a pet store. The mother of Carrie, the vivacious ten-year-old sitting in on Berendo Middle School’s Violence Intervention Program, makes pizza at a Papa John’s pizza outlet.
How these two value systems—a lingering work ethic and underclass mating norms—will interact in the future is anyone’s guess. Orange County sheriff’s deputy Montoya says that the older Hispanic generation’s work ethic is fast disappearing among the gangbanging youngsters whom he sees. “Now, it’s all about fast money, drugs, and sex.” It may be that the willingness to work will plummet along with marriage rates, leading to even greater social problems than are now rife among Hispanics. Or it may be that the two contrasting practices will remain on parallel tracks, creating a new kind of underclass: a culture that tolerates free-floating men who impregnate women and leave, like the vast majority of black men, yet who still labor in the noncriminal economy. The question is whether, if the disposition to work remains relatively strong, a working parent will inoculate his or her illegitimate children against the worst degradations that plague black ghettos.
From an intellectual standpoint, this is a fascinating social experiment, one that academicians are—predictably—not attuned to. But the consequences will be more than intellectual: they may severely strain the social fabric. Nevertheless, it is an experiment that we seem destined to see to its end. Tisha Roberts, a supervisor at an Orange County, California, institution that assists children in foster care, has given up hope that the illegitimacy rate will taper off. “It’s going to continue to grow,” she says, “until we can put birth control in the water.”

Sanctuary City Mayors Condemning Trump Should be Arrested

 
Well, not for criticizing Trump, but for breaking the law and recklessly endangering their citizens by harboring and shielding from scrutiny illegal aliens among whose number may include assorted Islamic State agents, sympathizers and potential lone wolf recruits, along with assorted criminals like the one charged with the murder of Kate Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco. They are accomplices in crime.

That is the suggestion of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who followed the righteous indignation of those condemning Trump for suggesting Muslim immigration be curtailed until we get our terrorist act together, a suggestion not unlike President Jimmy Carter’s halt to Iranian immigration during the hostage crisis. Jindal made the case on Monday on Boston Herald Radio:
 
“Absolutely, I would hold them as an accomplice. Make them criminally culpable,” the Republican presidential candidate said when asked if he’d arrest mayors of sanctuary cities. “I’d also make them civilly liable so that families, victim’s families could sue. Especially if the prosecutor isn’t taking action or the mayor’s not changing their ways, I’d allow the families to go to court as well to recover damages.”
While mayors that say Trump’s proposal is illegal and immoral are free to criticize the GOP frontrunner, they are not free to break federal immigration law and refuse to cooperate with federal authorities regarding the detention and deportation of illegal aliens. It’s not a small point, but one that is lost on a bunch of mayors led by Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who has declared Trump persona non grata in the City of Brotherly Love. Nutter is joined in shunning Trump by Rick Kiseman, mayor of St. Petersburg, Florida, and a handful of others.
Nutter signed an executive order proclaiming Philadelphia a sanctuary city in 2014, barring city police and prison officials from cooperating with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. It was just such a policy that condemned American citizen Kate Steinle to death at the hands of an illegal alien criminal, Juan Francisco Lopez, who had been deported five times and had seven felony convictions. That policy also led to the death of Jamiel Shaw Jr. in Los Angeles. Being a sanctuary city is illegal. State and local authorities cannot refuse to enforce federal law. Of course, who is going to call sanctuary cities to account when the President of the United States refuses to enforce our immigration laws. As Investor’s Business Daily noted in February, President Obama ordered those in charge of border security to obey his executive orders on amnesty and not our immigration laws:
If President Obama, who has warned ICE agents of consequences if they do their job, had a son, he might look like Jamiel Shaw Jr., a young African-American killed by an illegal alien who shouldn't have been here.

Shaw was a Los Angeles high school star dreaming of a good life ahead when he was gunned down on March 2, 2008, while walking home. He was picked at random, police said, possibly as part of a gang loyalty test for the illegal alien who shot him.

The sanctuary policies that led to the murder of Shaw are now full-blown federal policies under Obama. "We're not in the business of deporting millions of people or of breaking up families," he says. We're also not in the business of deporting criminal illegal aliens….

…President Obama was telling employees at Immigration and Customs Enforcement that they had better enforce his executive amnesty orders or else.

Speaking at a Miami town hall meeting sponsored by MSNBC and Telemundo, Obama said "there may be (an) ICE official or Border Patrol agent not paying attention to our new directives. If somebody's working for ICE . . . and they don't follow the policy, there's going to be consequences to it."
Well, there are consequences to following it, crimes up to and including the murder of American citizens. In his Sunday address in which he, like his Attorney General Loretta Lynch, worried more about a backlash against Muslims than about defeating the Islamic State in the wake of the San Bernardino massacre, did not list ending sanctuary cities as a way of protecting the American people from both terror and crime.
Why aren’t liberals and sanctuary city mayors outraged at protecting criminal aliens? It is not Donald Trump, whose mouth that roars is not being defended here, who is releasing dangerous criminals en masse to the streets of American cities. As Judicial Watch reports:
As the U.S. Senate considers a bill to slash funding for local governments that protect violent illegal immigrants, a new study reveals that hundreds of sanctuary cities nationwide released thousands of criminal aliens from jail rather than turn them over to federal authorities for deportation….
… in less than a year 340 sanctuary cities, counties and states around the U.S. released 9,295 alien offenders that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was seeking to deport. More than half had significant prior criminal histories and 600 were released at least twice by jurisdictions that protect criminal aliens from deportation by refusing to comply with ICE detainers. The figures were made public recently by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a nonprofit dedicated to researching the consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States….
Of those still at large, 1,377 (20%) had another criminal arrest following the one that resulted in the original ICE detainer. This is why a violent criminal, Francisco Javier Chavez, is on the loose. In August 2015 he was arrested for beating his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter and, despite an extensive criminal record that includes felony drug and drunk-driving convictions, a California sheriff’s department ignored an ICE detainer and released him.
So the sanctuary city mayors who are condemning Donald Trump are releasing rapists, murders, and assorted predators to harm Americans. Where is the outrage about that? And why shouldn’t Attorney General Lynch show up at City Halll with an arrest warrant?

AMNESTY: THE HOAX TO KEEP WAGES DEPRESSED AND PASS ALONG THE REAL COST IN WELFARE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

"The U.S. now ranks at, or near, the top of developed countries for income inequality. Job creation has lagged far behind population growth. Automation has erased some jobs, but corrupt, inept government leadership is responsible for the deplorable job- deficit-low wage situation."

"It is clear that the overarching goal of a succession of administrations and many members of Congress, irrespective of political party affiliation, is to keep our borders open and take no meaningful action to stop that flow of aliens into the United States."

326,000 Native-Born Americans Lost Their Job in November: Why This Remains the Most Important Jobs Chart

 By Tyler Durden

 ZeroHedge.com, December 5, 2015
. . .
We are confident that one can make the case that there are considerations on both the labor demand-side (whether US employers have a natural tendency to hire foreign-born workers is open to debate) as well as on the supply-side: it may be easier to obtain wage-equivalent welfare compensation for native-born Americans than for their foreign-born peers, forcing the latter group to be much more engaged and active in finding a wage-paying job.

However, the underlying economics of this trend are largely irrelevant: as the presidential primary race hits a crescendo all that will matter is the soundbite that over the past 8 years, 2.7 million foreign-born Americans have found a job compared to only 747,000 native-born. The result is a combustible mess that will lead to serious fireworks during each and every subsequent GOP primary debate, especially if Trump remains solidly in the lead.

Placating Americans with Fake Immigration Law Enforcement

 How our leaders create fantasy 'solutions' for our immigration-related vulnerabilities.

 By Michael Cutler

 FrontPageMag.com, December 4, 2015
. . .
Therefore the Visa Waiver Program should have been terminated after the terror attacks of 9/11 yet it has continually been expanded.

It is clear that the overarching goal of a succession of administrations and many members of Congress, irrespective of political party affiliation, is to keep our borders open and take no meaningful action to stop that flow of aliens into the United States.
. . .
The obvious question is why the Visa Waiver Program is considered so sacrosanct that even though it defies the advice and findings of the 9/11 Commission no one has the moral fortitude to call for simply terminating this dangerous program.

The answer can be found in the incestuous relationship between the Chamber of Commerce and its subsidiary, the Corporation for Travel Promotion, now doing business as Brand USA.

The Chamber of Commerce has arguably been the strongest supporter of the Visa Waiver Program, which currently enables aliens from 38 countries to enter the United States without first obtaining a visa.

The U.S. State Department provides a thorough explanation of the Visa Waiver Program on its website.

Incredibly, the official State Department website also provides a link, “Discover America,” on that website which relates to the website of The Corporation for Travel Promotion, which is affiliated with the travel industries that are a part of the “Discover America Partnership.”

Case Study of El Paso Attorney Laundering Money for the Cartel

 Case 2: El Paso attorney launders money for the Cartel
.
The scheme: An El Paso attorney conspired with multiple Mexican nationals, including the ex-wife of a former Mexican President, to launder approximately $600 million in drug proceeds for the Millennial/Valencia Cartel. The attorney, who was a philanthropist and former Carnegie Mellon Trustee, utilized his legal experience to generate false legal settlements for millions of dollars and created Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) in Nevada to launder the proceeds. The attorney also utilized lawyers in the Turks and Caicos Islands to aid him in creating additional false international LLCs and bank accounts to launder the drug proceeds. The attorney and willing associates furthered the conspiracy by hiring an independent cell of Mexican Nationals to exchange the bulk U.S. cash smuggled into Mexico for Pesos via Casa De Cambios.


Prominent Texas lawyer allegedly double-crossed U.S. drug agents, now faces trial for aiding a Mexican cartel

Marco Antonio Delgado, well-known lawyer with political ties, duped federal drug agents, U.S. says



NEW YORK DAILY NEWS


 
Juan Carlos Llorca/AP

Prominent Texas lawyer Marco Antonio Delgado sits outside the El Paso County Jail in November on his way to a federal court hearing on money laundry charges involving a Mexican drug cartel.


He seemed to do everything extremely well, until he allegedly made a colossal mistake — double-crossing U.S. drug agents while working as a confidential informant.

Far from pleased, the feds threw the book at him in two indictments handed down in the past few months.

Marco Antonio Delgado, a U.S. citizen with impressive credentials, is accused of conspiring to launder more than half a billion dollars for a Mexican drug cartel. In a separate indictment, the international energy lawyer is accused of transferring $32 million in client funds to his personal overseas account.

His drug trial was scheduled to begin last month, but at the last minute, his attorneys sought a delay, saying their client needed a psychiatric evaluation.
Delgado, 46, is now being tested by mental health experts in El Paso, where he has been incarcerated since his November arrest.

Now scheduled to begin July 3, his drug trial is one of the most high-profile Mexican cartel cases ever filed against an American citizen.

“It’s a unique case,” Ken Rijock, a former Miami banking lawyer who spent 10 years laundering and smuggling cash for Colombian drug lords, told the Daily News.

“It exposes the dirty little underside of law enforcement,” said Rijock, who served a federal prison sentence in the 1990s and later wrote a book about his criminal past titled “The Laundry Man.”

“How could (federal drug agents) not be embarrassed that their informant is also laundering money?” Rijock said.

“They really dropped the ball here. Not only was this guy charged with money laundering for one of the cartels, he’s also charged with funneling a client’s funds into an offshore banking account,” he said.

Delgado’s attorneys declined comment to The News. The U.S. Attorney’s office, which is prosecuting Delgado, does not comment on pending trials.

Delgado, a Mexican immigrant who entered the U.S. at age 16 with his family, immediately began living the American dream.

The campus of Carnegie Mellon Universtiy in Pittsburgh, Penn., where Marco Antonio Delgado was a trustee until last summer.


From the outset, he was smart and determined — he graduated from Austin High School in Texas at the top of his class, earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1989, followed that with graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania, then went to law school at Texas Tech.
Along the way, he became a naturalized U.S. citizen.
As a successful international trade attorney in El Paso, he also rose through the genteel ranks of philanthropy and academia. He was an El Paso Symphony donor and a trustee of Carnegie Mellon who donated $250,000 to the prestigious university to establish a scholarship in his name for promising Hispanic students.
He married in 1986 and fathered four children. The couple divorced in 2006. He was living with a common-law wife and her three children when he was arrested, according to local reports.
Somewhere along the way, if federal authorities are correct, he started working with a Mexican drug cartel, laundering their illicit cash and trying to slow down the extraditions of organized crime members from Mexico to the U.S.
It’s not clear when Delgado allegedly started dealing with the Milenio, or Los Valencias, cartel, which has mostly disbanded and has been absorbed by the ultra-violent Los Zetas Cartel, one the most powerful organized crime syndicates operating in Mexico.
Agents from U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement apparently recruited Delgado around 2007 as a confidential informant after they seized more than $1 million in cash related to drug trafficking and Delgado, according to court documents.
But while he was cooperating with U.S. drug agents, Delgado was also moving enormous amounts of cash behind ICE’s back, according to court testimony.
He was arrested in November at a posh restaurant in El Paso by Homeland Security Investigations agents. Two months before, he had been indicted by a federal grand jury in El Paso for conspiracy to commit money laundering from 2005 to 2008. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
Delgado pleaded not guilty. His legal clients have included the U.S. and European countries in negotiating with Pemex, Mexico’s state-controlled gas and oil giant.
He has been denied bail.

BLOG: CURRENT NARCOMEX PRESIDENT ENRIQUE PENA NIETO'S PARTY HAS LONG HAD TIES TO THE LA RAZA DRUG CARTELS.

The well-known Texas lawyer once worked for the late Ann Richards, a former Texas governor. He left his Carnegie Mellon post last summer, when he said he was becoming an adviser to Mexican presidential candidate Enrique Pena Nieto, who later won election and took office in December.

Nieto’s office has denied Delgado worked for the candidate, according to published reports.

While in U.S. custody, a second federal indictment was handed down in February. The 17-count filing accuses Delgado of wire fraud and money laundering in 2010.

The charges allege he diverted $32 million from a Nevada business under contract with a Mexican utility in Sonora state and had the money deposited to an account he controlled in the Turks and Caicos islands.

Those charges also carry a maximum sentence of 20 years upon conviction.

Delgado has also pleaded not guilty in that case.
He has refused plea deal offers, federal prosecutors have said in court.

On May 15, just days before his drug trial was to begin, defense attorneys Ray Velarde and Richard Esper asked for a continuance so their client could be evaluated by psychiatrists.

“I’ve had extensive time with Mr. Delgado, and it’s not enough,” Velarde told U.S. District Judge David Briones, according to the El Paso Times.
The continuance request, which was filed under seal, was granted.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Juanita Fielden did not object. “I don’t know if this defendant comprehends how serious the charges are against him,” she told the court.

Texas lawyer Marco Antonio Delgado, a well-known philanthropist and a former trustee of Carnegie Mellon University is transferred to a federal court hearing in November to face charges he conspired to launder more than $600 million for a Mexican drug cartel.


But it’s unlikely Delgado misses the point, drug cartel experts said.

Offering information about the Zetas in exchange for a lesser sentence would be the same as signing his death warrant, they said.

“He can’t testify, they’ll kill him,” Rijock said. “Money launderers don’t plead guilty if they’re connected to any of the cartels” because its members can get to someone no matter where they are, including in prison, Rijock said.

In Texas last week, drug cartel lawyer Juan Guerrero Chapa, 43, was gunned down in broad daylight.

Two of his drug cartel clients had recently been sentenced to stiff federal prison terms in Texas, according to local reports.

And Chapa, according to a local television station, was also feeding information about his clients to U.S. drug agents.

George W. Grayson, a senior fellow at the Foreign Police Research Institute and a professor at Virginia’s College of William and Mary, said it’s not surprising the feds went after their own informant, or that Delgado has thus far rejected a plea deal.

“Spies who have worked both sides of the street are usually charged with everything in the book,” Grayson told The News.

“You’ve been double-crossed and betrayed.”

As for the Zetas, who now control what’s left of the Milenio Cartel, there is no percentage in talking about them to authorities.

“The Zetas will kill just for the pure pleasure of seeing someone suffer,” Grayson said. “And they will do horrible things before the coup de grace.”
