No Wonder: Is It Like This w/ Every Illegal Alien? – The DHS, ICE & Border Patrol Meltdown (Secret Videos of Immigration Enforcement Planning)
By Debbie Schlussel
I’ve obtained the secret videos of enforcement planning at Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the rest of the Department of Homeland Security (posted below). Completely non-sensical. It explains a lot, like:
* Why a federal-level summit had to be held to get an illegal alien criminal, Elvira Arellano, pushed out of the country:
Arellano was held for about three hours at San Diego’s Otay Mesa immigration detention center Sunday night while U.S. and Mexican authorities met there to discuss the case, Mack said. The discussions included Luis Cabrera, Mexico’s general consul in San Diego, and Robin Baker, ICE’s director of detention and removals in San Diego.
Unbelievable. You’d think she was an international water treaty.
Does this absurdity happen for every deportation? Let’s hope not. No wonder nothing ever gets done. Between high-level meetings begging countries to take back their citizens and those who continue to refuse to issue travel documents to take them back, we’ll never make a dent and getting rid of these aliens.
* Why the TOP Border Patrol official in the key area of Laredo, Texas, said the Border Patrol is not responsible for apprehending illegal aliens or stopping drug smuggling. HUH?!!!!!:
Border Patrol agents dont have the responsibility of apprehending illegal immigrants, Carlos X. Carrillo, chief patrol agent for the Laredo sector, said at a town hall meeting Wednesday.”The Border Patrol is not equipped to stop illegal immigrants,” Carrillo said, noting that illegal narcotics are also not on the agents priority list.
“The Border Patrol mission is not to do any of those things,” he emphasized.
The Border Patrols mission is to keep the country safe from terrorist and terrorist weapons, he said. Carrillo added that when and if terrorists come into the country, the agents will be ready.
Does this blithering idiot actually read a newspaper or watch the news? Does he not know that reports, including recent ones from his own employer (the federal government), show that terrorists are coming into the country as illegal aliens and are WORKING WITH drug smugglers?
G-d save us.
* Why ICE and DHS gave us yet another new phony “get tough” policy requiring employers to check for phony social security numbers, when ICE knows that the IRS maintains a privacy wall and won’t deign to fight it:
Days after unveiling a major crackdown on businesses that hire illegal immigrants, the Bush administration is now quietly admitting that its most heavily touted weapon in pursuing employers will be virtually useless.
At the heart of the new rules announced last week is toughened Homeland Security enforcement of so-called “no match” letters – which the Social Security Administration sends to companies when employees have questionable identification numbers.
But Homeland Security officials acknowledged this week that because of a privacy provision in the Internal Revenue Service code, immigration officials will actually have no way of knowing which employers have received “no-match” letters, which have complied and which have not.
* Why ICE is putting on a fraudulent front when it pretends to be tough against U.S. Census Bureau requests that it suspend immigration enforcement while the 2010 Census is being taken:
Illegal aliens have constantly taken part in and been included in the Census. ICE won’t follow Census takers (unfortunately), nor will it conduct any mass raids or arrests. But, hey, “The ICE Princess” gets to pretend she’s actually tough on something. Watch what I say, not what I (won’t let my agents) do.
