When is it going to end?
Politely now, I have come to the unprecedented conclusion that I no longer want to, or even care to listen to another illegal immigration “activist” without further annoyance. Please understand that as I’ve stated in the past, I am preparing a series of posts on illegal immigrant rights, stature, treatment, entitlements, and more of what they receive once they arrive in the USA.
And am I ever learning! It appears these lists accommodating illegal immigrants are endless. Furthermore, I am aware that people in this country without proper permission, citizenship, or by right do not like being called or referred to as “illegal.” Yet, as at the time of this writing, if I were to drop the illegal section, there is no way to be clear about whom I am writing about. Plus, contrary to Rep. Nancy Pelosi-D CA and others within our current government who have a challenging time understanding that when a person does something illegal, it does carry a title.
Just tonight on a television show called, The Story, I was listening to the show’s moderator discussing the “illegal” situation in the state of California and the completely unconstitutional sanctuary cities when I got overwhelmed with adrenaline at his remarks, tone, and attitude.
Before I get going on that well-trodden path, what I want to write is some apparent new executive orders written and signed and apparently looking to be legislated into law. Ready? Great, here we go. It is believed we’ve needed this program for ions.
The “Office for Victims of Crimes Committed by Removable Aliens,” now called “Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE),” was created by an executive order on immigration enforcement on January 25 and enhanced in a memorandum by DHS secretary John Kelly on February 20. VOICE is a very appropriate name for this office. For years American families victimized by illegal aliens have been ignored. Because of the misuse of “privacy” rules and indifference, they have been unable to find out whether the criminals who attacked their family members were in the country legally or illegally, or even whether the aliens were incarcerated, deported, or set free.
Let’s just think of the Kate Steinle’s family or just about last weekend’s tragedy that included three vehicles’, deaths, a drunk illegal alien, and the man was let go in Colorado before the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials even arrived to process the illegal alien.
Secretary Kelly’s memo stated that “criminal aliens routinely victimize Americans. . .. Often, these victims are not provided adequate information about the offender, the offender’s immigration status, or any enforcement action taken by ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] against the offender . . . leaving victims feeling marginalized and without a voice.” The DHS memo declared that the new office would create a liaison with the victims and provide information including the “offender’s immigration status and custody status.” Funds for VOICE would be reallocated from “resources that are currently used to advocate on behalf of illegal aliens,” an Obama initiative, which would be “immediately” terminated. Thus, no major new bureaucracy would be created.
It is to Donald Trump’s credit that he has done what no other presidential candidate, or major American political figure, has ever done, by championing these unfashionable and (for many) inconvenient victims of illegal-immigrant crime (inconvenient because of they muddy the dominant media narrative).
In contrast to Trump, when the family members of Americans killed by illegal aliens testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the summer of 2015, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Richard Durbin (D., Ill.) fled the hearing room and returned only after the families had gone. As Mark Krikorian explained, these Americans are “all dead because federal, state, and local governments have abdicated their responsibility to protect American citizens from foreign criminals.”
I found some interesting statistics whilst researching these initiatives and crimes. Did you know;
* Three-fourths of the drivers had no auto insurance – more than four times the national rate for uninsured motorists.
* Nearly all the vehicles driven by migrants and other laborers were registered to other drivers.
* Ninety-three percent of the vehicles had out-of-state tags – most of them from Tennessee.
* The number of injuries per accident was about 50 percent higher than the statewide average.
