Calif. Gov. Brown to Decide on Bill Protecting Illegal Alien Criminals

“State lawmakers Tuesday sent Gov. Jerry Brown a tall stack of proposed laws, including controversial measures to expand immigrant rights, impose sweeping controls on gun owners and reduce penalties for possession of hard drugs. The bills would limit cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities, ban the use of lead bullets by hunters and allow prosecutors to file misdemeanor charges rather than felonies for simple possession of heroin and cocaine,” the LA Times writes. Read FAIR’s alert for more information about this bill to protect criminals.

The Illegal Alien Lobby is Getting Tax Money to Sign People Up for Obamacare

“The Chicago Lampoon has stumbled on a little-known State of Illinois grant notice which reveals that Chicago’s chief lobby group for illegal aliens, The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) and a number of ancillary immigrant lobby groups are getting millions of dollars in grants to enroll immigrants in the Obamacare socialized medicine scheme,” says the Chicago Lampoon blog.

“The feds are handing out big wads of your tax cash to hire “In-person counselors” and “Navigators” at $13 an hour to run around and sign up people for the Obamacare program. They’ve designated a gaggle of “Community Action Agencies” to hire the counselors and navigators.”

States Tackle Immigration Bills

“The drive to reform the nation’s immigration laws may be stalled in Congress, but the national debate it has inspired is at least partly responsible for a spike in new laws passed in state legislatures around the country. Through the end of June, 43 states and the District of Columbia had passed a total of 377 laws and resolutions related to immigration, according to a report to be issued Wednesday by the National Conference of State Legislators’ Immigration Policy Project. That’s an 83 percent increase from the first half of 2012,” the Washington Post reports.

Illegal Aliens From India Surge Across Arizona Border

“On a recent Friday night in Phoenix, an unmarked white Department of Homeland Security bus pulls up to a curb near the Greyhound bus station. The door swings open and 15 young men and women from India step off. In the scorching summer heat, they climb into waiting cars and taxis, cramming as many passengers inside as possible before they are driven off into the night,” the Arizona Republic writes.

“The Indians are part of a mysterious surge in migrants from the South Asian country showing up at the Arizona border without legal visas and then requesting asylum to remain permanently in the U.S. out of fear they may be persecuted if returned to their homeland.”

Previously Deported Belgian Arrested After Swimming to Detroit

“A Belgian man is behind bars after telling an alleged bogus tale about how he and his belongings ended up in the Detroit River. He pretended to be a crime victim, authorities said, when he was really an unlawful immigrant trying to sneak into the country. According to a criminal complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court, U.S. border agents spotted the man around 2 a.m. Thursday. He was hanging over the water from a boardwalk near Atwater Street,” the Detroit Free Press says .

“The agents approached Smolders and arrested him on charges of being an illegal immigrant in the U.S. A search of his belongings also turned up a Belgian passport with a Canadian arrival stamp dated Wednesday.”

Former DHS Secretary Chertoff Says Executive Amnesty

“Former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff believes a unilateral move by the White House would further doom the chances of Congress embracing sweeping reform legislation. Chertoff, who advocated for sweeping changes to immigration law under President George W. Bush, said Obama’s election-year decision in 2012 to defer deportations for immigrants brought to the country illegally as children has caused great skepticism among reform opponents,” the Washington Post writes.

“‘I understand when the decision was made not to deport the so-called ‘Dreamers’ it was seen as very humane. But for people skeptical and distrusting, that vindicated their skepticism,’ Chertoff said during an immigration forum in Raleigh, N.C., co-sponsored by a pro-reform group called Bibles, Badges and Business, the North Carolina Farm Bureau and Bipartisan Policy Center.”

    This clown, Governor Brown must be stopped! Who among the GOP is up to the task. Signing AB60 was a ‘symbolic’ love letter to Speaker Boehner, calling for Congress to pass immigration reform. Four words to Boehner: No Conference On Amnesty. In meanwhile I hope federal government intervenes and imposes a mandate to halt all pro-illegal legislation. These illegals are getting restless, demanding and causing havoc and chaos. Civil disobedience is thge directive by thgeir advocates. We brought this on ourselves–give them a foot, thgey take a mile. Government did this, the People want better, we know better.

    Just look at what our country America is turning in to, another country poor seem to have more say so about illegal immigration then the American citizens who have legal rights here. Many of our own politicians will go to the extreme, to push to keep millions of illegal aliens here in America, now illegal aliens are to have driver license in California, the excuse is, so they can get to work, in reality they not suppose to working in America illegally any ways, so they can pick up the children from school, so that they no longer get their cars impound, millions of American get their cars impound a lot, many of them lose their cars to this big impound scam, many poor Americans get their darn car impound for no good reason, just for the money making of those who impound their cars, their cars get impound, and if they do not get money to get it out in time, the cost go up on them until they are not able to get their cars out at all, guess what! they end up losing their cars that they had paid for, or are paying a payment for! Do our politicians car about this? No they do not, they tend to care more about millions of illegal aliens who are not suppose to be here then their own poor Americans, it is to the point where they might as well give all of America to Mexico!!!!

    What ever illegal aliens want in America, illegal aliens will get!! There are so many people including our own president many people in congress, seems to think the only way America will solve massive illegal immigration, is to just give them what they want in America, regardless that there are millions of Americans jobless. These very same people had already made a mess our of America with illegal immigration, and are about to make a more of a terrible mess, or disaster with illegal immigration in America, Just watch this turn in to a terrible disaster when it get implemented! There is going to be so much racist, discrimination, so much lies, trying to help millions of illegal aliens in America, There are already millions of more illegal aliens crossing the borders now, trying to get on the band wagon to America’s amnesty or legalization for illegal immigrants, you better believe they are working on getting false paper work together to lie about how long they have been in America! and what about all the help and underhanded work, by many Americans, and Americans employer who will find some kind of way to help millions of them through the doors! America will be doom, with another amnesty or legalization for millions of illegal aliens, also with another dream act, especially if they do not get millions of illegal out of our jobs now, and stop all birthrights to illegal aliens children. and stop giving so much incentive to illegal aliens, America need some kind of limitation of immigrants, America do not need to try to take care of another country poor, this it self hurts poor and middle class Americans!!!

    If the People from India is swarming the border, the Iraq, the Iranian, the Pakistani, the Columbians, and every other terrorist with any brains at all is right along with them! The people of the US should file a class action law suite against so called homeland security, the INS, and the federal government. They should all be incarcerated for crimes against America, conspiracy, aiding & abetting terrorist and treason! What the hell is this country up to?

    Nice, why not just go ahead and declare a full on attack on American Citizens?
    Protect the guilty at the expense of the innocent…sounds true to California nature.

    That god-forsaken depraved place needs to just sink into the Pacific with all illegals stranded on it.

    America just isn’t even a shadow of its once glorious self. Thanks illegal law-breakers and their supporters.
