MEXIFORNIA IN METLDOWN: First, illegal immigration is the problem. CA has spent hundreds of billions on illegal aliens and their bills — public schools, free meals at school, special bi-lingual teachers, healthcare, housing allowances, low income energy assistance, aid to families with dependent children, prisons, cops, courts, public defenders, welfare, food stamps, and a hundred other gov handouts. And don’t forget lower college tuition for illegal immigrants. WAYNE ALLYN ROOT

JUDICIAL WATCH - DEPORTED GANGSTER ILLEGAL ANGEL RAMOS WHO STABBED A WOMAN TO DEATH WITH A SCREW DRIVER AND THEN RUNNING OVER HER. RAMOS IS AN "UNREGISTERED DEMOCRAT" AND CONFIRMED MEMBER OF MS-13 GANGS
Deported Gangster in Murder Plot Worked in Colorado City that Wouldn’t Hire Police Chief for Backing Immigration Enforcement
A previously deported
illegal immigrant gang member charged with attempted murder and kidnapping this
month was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Ft. Collins, a northern Colorado
sanctuary city that ousted a finalist for police chief over his support of
immigration enforcement. Judicial Watch blew the scandal open in September and is embroiled in a
public records saga with Ft. Collins officials for documents surrounding the
selection process and abrupt elimination of a respected veteran law enforcement
official with impressive credentials. Ft. Collins is trying to keep records
secret by assertingthat the “material is so candid or personal that
public disclosure is likely to stifle honest and frank discussion within the
chief deputy for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in central Arizona, Steve
Henry, was a finalist for the Ft. Collins position and was invited to travel to
the city for an interview. But Henry’s offer was abruptly rescinded, according
to a source closely involved with the selection process, because he publicly
supported an Arizona law (SB1070) that
makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. without proper documentation and bans
“sanctuary city” policies. This clashes with Ft. Collins’ sanctuary
policies, which have been well documented in media reports. Mayor Wade Troxell
said in a local newspaper that
the city is an open, inclusive and friendly community and that “all people
matter.” Members of the city council have consistently said they support
diversity and want the city to be a welcoming place for all people.
case proves how sanctuary policies endanger communities. The suspect, an
illegal alien from El Salvador named Angel Ramos, tried to kill a woman by
stabbing her repeatedly with a screw driver then running her over with his car
before trying to stuff her in the trunk. He is a confirmed member of the
violent street gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and is wanted for homicide in his
native El Salvador, according to information provided to the media by the U.S.
Marshals Service. The 36-year-old has been charged with attempted murder,
assault, menacing with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, domestic violence and
criminal impersonation. Last year Ramos was deported from Texas to El Salvador
after getting arrested for domestic violence, authorities told a national news outlet. Days after trying to kill the woman this
month, he was arrested at the Ft. Collins construction site where he worked.
clear how or when Ramos ended up in Ft. Collins, but it’s not unreasonable to
assume that the city’s sanctuary measures made it attractive for a previously
deported gang member on the run. The MS-13 is a feared street gang of
mostly Central American illegal immigrants that’s spread throughout the U.S.
and is renowned for drug distribution, murder, rape, robbery, home invasions,
kidnappings, vandalism and other violent crimes. The Justice Department’s
National Gang Intelligence Center (NGIC) says criminal street gangs like the
MS-13 are responsible for most violent crimes in the U.S. and are the primary
distributors of most illicit drugs. Wonder how Ft. Collins residents feel about
their city leaders enabling MS-13 members to live and work in their community?
interesting note is that Ft. Collins’ local newspaper, the Coloradoan, makes no
mention of Ramos’ immigration status, reporting only that “Homeland Security agents
assisted with the arrest.” The paper supported Ft. Collins’ push to become a
sanctuary for illegal immigrants and appears to be completely in the city
government’s pocket. Other Colorado media outlets rightfully mentioned the
newsworthy information about Ramos’ immigration status. The Ramos case
indicates that Ft. Collins could use a better newspaper and a police chief like
Steve Henry, whose support for the rule of law ironically served as a
disqualifier for a candidate hired to enforce the rule of law.
ICE ‘Raging Bull’ Operation Leads to Arrest of 267 MS-13 Gang Members
ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents executed Operation Raging Bull in support of the Department of Justice’s recent prioritization of enforcement actions against violent transnational gangs.
“MS-13 has long been a priority for ICE. However we are now combating the gang with renewed focus and an unprecedented level of cooperation among DHS’s components and our domestic and international partners,” ICE Deputy Director and Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Director Thomas Homan said in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “ICE has the ability to pursue complex criminal cases using our statutory authorities and to prevent crime by using our administrative arrest authorities to remove gang members from the country. We will not rest until every member, associate, and leader of MS-13 has been held accountable for their crimes, and those in this country illegally have been removed.”
Phase one of the operation followed up on the results of an 18-month investigation in El Salvador. The probe led to the arrests of 53 MS-13 gang members and affiliates in El Salvador. In early October, the second phase began in the States. Running from October 8 to November 11, law enforcement officers and agents from federal, state, and local agencies arrested 214 gang members and affiliates across the U.S.
“With more than 10,000 members across 40 states, MS-13 is one of the most dangerous criminal organizations in the United States today,” Sessions said in a statement on Thursday. “President Trump has ordered the Department of Justice to reduce crime and take down transnational criminal organizations, and we will be relentless in our pursuit of these objectives.”
“So far this year, we have secured convictions against more than 1,200 gang members and worked with our partners in Central America to arrest and charge some 4,000 MS-13 members,” the AG explained. “These 267 arrests are the next step toward making this country safer by taking MS-13 off of our streets for good.”
Ninety-three of the 214 arrests made in the U.S. were based on federal and/or state criminal charges, officials stated. Those charges include: murder, aggravated robbery, racketeering influenced corrupt organization (RICO) offenses, violent crime in aid of racketeering (VICAR) offenses, narcotics trafficking, narcotics possession, firearms offenses, domestic violence, assault, forgery, driving under the influence, and illegal entry/reentry. Immigration violations made up the remaining 121 arrests.

Only 16 of those arrested were U.S. citizens, the report states. Illegal aliens made up the overwhelming majority of those arrested. Officials arrested a total of 198 immigrants — 193 of which had no legal status. The MS-13 gang members came from El Salvador (135), Honduras (29), Mexico (17), Guatemala (12), Ecuador (4) and Costa Rica (1).
Of those arrested after entering the U.S. illegally, ICE officials reported that 64 came to the U.S. as Unaccompanied Alien Children — most of those are now adults.

ICE officials provided examples of the types of crimes carried out by these MS-13 gang members:
In Baltimore, Maryland, the arrest and indictment of four MS-13 members on charges that include violent crimes in aid of racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering.
In McKinney, Texas, the arrest of an MS-13 gang member and citizen of El Salvador who is wanted for homicide by the National Civil Police of El Salvador (PNC).
In Denver, Colorado, the arrest of an MS-13 gang member and citizen of El Salvador who is wanted on an outstanding warrant for DUI and was found with three machetes in his possession.
In Los Angeles, California, the arrest of an MS-13 member and citizen of El Salvador, subject of an INTERPOL Red Notice for gang offenses and involvement with the murder of an PNC officer in El Salvador.
In San Francisco, California, the arrest of an MS-13 member and citizen of El Salvador, who is a wanted fugitive in El Salvador on an arrest warrant for violent crimes including homicide.
ICE officials added six MS-13 gang members to their most wanted list, including one wanted in Montgomery County, Texas, on murder charges. The other five fugitives are suspected of murdering Salvadoran police officers.
Operation Raging Bull – Most Wanted List – ICE
ICE uses the following criteria in confirming MS-13 gang membership or affiliation:
Individuals are confirmed as gang members if they admit membership in a gang; have been convicted of violating Title 18 USC 521 or any other federal or state law criminalizing or imposing civil consequences for gang-related activity; or if they meet certain other criteria such as having tattoos identifying a specific gang or being identified as a gang member by a reliable source.
Gang associates are individuals who exhibit gang member criteria but who are not formally initiated into the gang. Law enforcement officers encountering these individuals will determine whether indications of gang association are present by referring to the gang membership criteria.

One-Third of 214 Arrested MS-13 Gangsters Were ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’
Almost one-third of 214 U.S.-based MS-13 gang members arrested in an international sweep were invited into the United States by President Barack Obama’s “Unaccompanied Alien Children” policy.
The successful “Raging Bull’ sweep was announced by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Deputy Director Tom Homan in a joint press conference at ICE headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
operation is a “significant step towards dismantling and eradicating MS-13 in
the United States and in El Salvador,” said Deputy Assistant
Attorney General David Rybicki, the second-ranking official at DOJ’s Criminal
Division. El Salvador police also arrested
53 gang members in El Salvador.
Sixteen of the 214 arrestees in
the United States are U.S. citizens. Five were legal immigrants.
of 214 arrestees are charged with federal or state criminal offenses and will
face prison time in the United States, said Derek Benner, the deputy executive
associate director of the Homeland Security Investigations division.
of 214 include 193 illegal aliens, including 121 arrestees who will be deported
but will not face criminal charges.
of the 193 illegals – nearly one in three – are would-be “dreamers” because
they illegally crossed the
border while claiming to be minors. Their unscreened claims to be children —
not adults — won them the legal status of “Unaccompanied
Alien Children,” which allowed them to claim federal aid and be released into
the United States.
The status was provided by Obama’s
administration, which was seeking ways to welcome migrants from Central
America into the United States. That invite spiraled out of control, resulting
in a huge wave of migrants in 2014, which helped Donald Trump get elected.
“Definitely some UACs end up being
bad people and enter the country to do bad things,” said Homan, who is serving
as acting ICE director and was nominated on Tuesday by Trump to head the
agency. “That’s why we asked for several policy changes in [the requests] we
sent to the Hill.”
charges against the 214 gang-members include racketeering and conspiracy
to commit murder in the furtherance of racketeering. According to Rybicki, an
entire eight-man MS-13 “clique” (a local division of a gang) was arrested in
the operation. This “Sailors Clique” operated in suburban Maryland, a hotspot of
MS-13 activity, and has been linked to at least three murders.
Border Patrol Deputy Chief Scott Luck explained that the operation
worked with El Salvadoran intelligence agencies to identify people with links
was created in Los Angeles during the 1980s because the U..S government failed
to enforce immigration laws, which allowed El Salvador youths to sneak into the
United States. Without economic skills in California’s diverse society, they
formed their own national gang — and then recreated that gang in their own
homeland once the illegal immigrants were repatriated home.
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Francis Cissna explained
that his agency’s work to identify illegal aliens with gang affiliations was
vital to Raging Bull’s success. USCIS had one of its Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate (FDNS)agents at the Raging Bull command center full
time to work to that effect. “That individual reviewed asylum claims for MS-13
members targeted by the operation and assisted in assembling target packages
for the immigration and/or criminal court proceedings of these gang members
arrested during the operation,” Cissna said.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions bemoaned in
October, gang members and other unworthy illegal aliens often use the United
States’s generous asylum policies to tie up their cases in administrative
proceedings, often needing only a “credible claim” of persecution in their home
country to avoid deportation for years.
notified ICE HSI regarding asylum applicants with strong ties to MS-13 or other
significant gang indicators,” Cissna continued. “Our headquarters FDNS officers
search USCIS systems for information regarding 195 targeted MS-13 members and associates
identified by the operation for additional vetting.”
Raging Bull carries on a series of nationwide and international efforts against
the brutal gang. In July, Attorney General Sessions went to El Salvador to announce nearly
600 arrests in that country. Earlier in the summer, ICE’s “Operation Matador” netteddozens
of arrests in the United States.
Salvador police also arrested 53 gang members in el Salvador.
In 2013, California lawmakers passed legislation that allowed illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses if they can prove to the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) their identity and state residency. The plan was one of the largest victories to date by the open borders lobby.… JOHN BINDER – BREITBART.com
