The Democratic Party are now so committed to open borders and illegal immigration that they cannot reverse course without a major upheaval within their ranks. Do they really give a damn about the African American population, native born or naturalized Hispanics, and the low-income white working families? Or, are the potential votes of the illegal population more important? STEVE McCANN

Kamala Harris: Immigration Raids Are 'A Crime Against Humanity'

(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), now among the leading contenders for the Democrat presidential nomination, says President Trump's immigration raids are "a crime against humanity."
She made the comment Thursday night during an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
Harris argued that President Trump is ordering the immigration raids to distract from his presidential failures:
So the guy has now got to start distracting people from the fact that he made all these promises that I believe he had no intention of fulfilling. And he has failed to perform on every level by which we should measure a president of the United States. Not to mention failed as a commander in chief.
And so he's going to create, as he often does, this distraction....and do these raids, which is a crime against humanity, I believe, in the way he is coming about this and the way he has been handling the issue, when you have babies in cages...
Harris said Trump believes "we are not a nation that should embrace immigrants."
Trump repeatedly has said he has no problem with immigration if it's done legally.
The immigration raids planned for this weekend in ten major cities are aimed at people who are here illegally and have deportation orders against them.
In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced this week that she will "never tolerate I.C.E. tearing our families apart."
Lightfoot said the threat of raids has forced illegal immigrants to hide in fear. She said the Chicago Police Department "will not cooperate with I.C.E." in detaining residents, nor will I.C.E. have access to any Chicago Police databases.
Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has advised illegal immigrants that they do not have to open their doors to immigration authorities with lawful deportation orders.
Harris said she supports efforts to shield illegal immigrants from deportation.
"I assumed that what Mayor Lightfoot is doing in Chicago similar to what Mayor Breed will do in San Francisco, what Mayor Garcetti will do in Los Angeles, which is say we don't want the limited resources of local law enforcement to go into the job that the federal government has got to do, and we want our local law enforcement to be trusted by our community and not be feared by our community," Harris said.
"Because again, as a prosecutor, as a former prosecutor, but I saw it as a prosecutor, I don't want a victim of crime to be afraid to wave down that patrol car when she has been hurt for fear that if she stops that police officer she is going to be deported.
"Because I'm going to tell you something. If she is a mother, if he is a father, they will endure any kind of abuse they have personally experienced to make sure they can go home at night and take care of their babies. Which means they will not report bad things that have happened to them and therefore to their community, meaning our community. Because, by the way, a crime against any one of us is a crime against all of us," Harris continued.
"And so I applaud that mayor saying we're not going to put local resources into that. And when we put local resources into something like that, like we have done in the past, we're going to go prosecute transnational criminal organizations. What are you doing picking up people who by I.C.E.'s own definition have not committed a crime? It's a misuse of resources."

"Arevalo-Guzman had aggravated felony convictions in 2002 and 2008," said the release. "He had terrorized and robbed U.S. citizens at knife point, including one instance in which he committed carjacking and forced the victim to drive him to another city before stealing the vehicle."
"On more than 15 separate occasions, Arevalo-Guzman robbed or caused disturbances at a local Hidalgo County church by assaulting the members in the parking lot," said the release.

Illegal Alien Receives Significant Sentence for Unlawfully Being in the Country
BROWNSVILLE, Texas – A 44-year-old Mexican national has been ordered to federal prison for being an aggravated felon who illegally re-entered the United States, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.
Juan Ramon Arevalo-Guzman pleaded guilty Dec. 21, 2018. He has a history of violent felony robberies in Hidalgo County and was previously deported and ordered not to return.
Today, U.S. District Judge Rolando Olvera ordered Arevalo-Guzman to serve an 84-month term of imprisonment. Not a U.S. citizen, he is expected to again face deportation proceedings following the sentence.
Arevalo-Guzman had aggravated felony convictions in 2002 and 2008. He had terrorized and robbed U.S. citizens at knife point, including one instance in which he committed carjacking and forced the victim to drive him to another city before stealing the vehicle.
On more than 15 separate occasions, Arevalo-Guzman robbed or caused disturbances at a local Hidalgo County church by assaulting the members in the parking lot.
Following his last conviction, he had been removed from the United States – Feb. 15, 2017.
However, he re-entered the country illegally on or about Nov. 1, 2018. At that time authorities found Arevalos-Guzman in the Rio Grande River area near Donna.
He has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
Border Patrol conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Schorr Dinsdale prosecuted the case.
llegal Alien Accused of Killing Illinois Father of Two Locked Up on $1M Bail
An illegal alien accused of killing father of two, Corey Cottrell, is now being held on a $1 million bail after pleading not guilty following a deadly hit-and-run in the sanctuary state of Illinois.
Jose Rodriguez, a 27-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, is accused of running a red light on June 22 in Bloomington, Illinois, causing him to hit and kill 39-year-old Corey Cottrell, a father of two daughters, who was riding his motorcycle at the time and was on his way to see his mother, Kathy.
Prosecutors said Rodriguez fled the scene of the crash after hitting Cottrell. The following day, the illegal alien turned himself into law enforcement officials and has since been charged with causing a deadly hit-and-run and driving without a license.

On Friday, while the Cottrell held services for Corey, Rodriguez pleaded not guilty in court to causing the deadly hit-and-run and was given a $1 million bail in response by McClain County, Illinois, Judge Bill Yoder. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were nearby ready to take the illegal alien into custody should he have been released.
The Cottrell family was worried weeks ago when they found out that Rodriguez had been released from prison on a $10,000 bail. Family friend Cheryl Wendland said they were concerned that the illegal alien may attempt to flee the United States.
Instead, Wendland said Rodriguez being back in custody was the best news they could have gotten.
“We got to go tell his mother that we have such beautiful news that the man who killed your son is back in custody,” Wendland said. “That was glorious.”
“We may be living in Illinois, but maybe they’re taking care of us in McClain County,” Wendland said. “Someone listened to us and realized how wrong this was.”
The illegal alien’s attorney Chris Gramm told local media that his client had undergone an “ambush” in court because of his bond increasing to $1 million and ICE agents showing up ready to take him into custody.
Prairie State Wire’s W.J. Kennedy confirmed with federal immigration officials that Rodriguez had been living in the U.S. as an illegal alien for years. Details of Rodriguez’s immigration history, obtained by Kennedy, reveal that in 2013 the illegal alien was issued an expedited deportation order.
The next year, on March 6, 2014, Rodriguez was issued a final deportation order by an immigration judge in a trial that he did not show up to, Kennedy reports.
Cottrell leaves behind his mother Kathy, his 11- and 14-year-old daughters Karina and Alexandra, his sister Shanna, his grandmother Virginia, as well as his aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
