Border Patrol Agents Send Newark a Letter

Border Patrol agents have directed my attention to a letter their union, the National Border Patrol Council, sent to the City of Newark:

August 10th 2007
Dear City of Newark
If your city officials had reported Mr. Carranza as an illegal alien to DHS while he was in your jail for raping children, the three young people murdered by Mr. Carranza would be alive. Other sanctuary cities pay heed, because it is only a matter of time until it happens to someone in your town.

Several promising lives snuffed out in an instant by Jose Carranza. All might have been prevented. Very tragic.

By providing santuary to criminals, cities have set themselves up for an explosion of crime for which, cities have only themselves to blame for electing corrupt city officials, who passed/uphend santuaty-laws.
It is as simple as 1+1=2.
Now, the right thing to do is to bring those city officials, responsible for passing and/or upholding santuary-laws, to justice; and abolish santuary-laws.

This case is not unique, it happens all the time and has happened for decades. The fingerpointing dies down after a while and it is business as usual; and that is not ICE’s fault, fat sheriff Billy Goat, the DA and her wunderkind ADAs will blow it a thousand times before next year ends. It usaually doesn’t make the paper unless it is a cop that is murderered on the job by an illegal.

The bright side is that more and more MSMer’s are starting to regularly drawing attention to this kind of a scandal. I guess they are desparate for getting some audience back–they realize that this kind of issue touches raw nerves in this country like little else to inflame real Americans (that would be the legal ones).
How long till someone is held legally accountable in city, state and/or federal government for complicity in these crimes? The officials who don’t do their jobs should be sent to jail themselves. They are the enablers of these illegals–they fail to honor their oaths of office to defend the welfare of its (legal-duh) citizens. City governments such as Detroit’s, whose city council has forbidden law enforcement from even checking legal status of those they pull open for crimes–these should be arrested and tried for treason themselves.

We have a real challenge in the United States with radical Islamic terrorists who are here to kill us. How do we know? They have repeatedly told us what they are going to do. Google the article, Terrorists teaming with drug cartels, The Washington Times, by Sara A. Carter, August 8, 2007. In her article, she references a 2005 confidential DEA report, ìIslamic extremists embedded in the United States ó posing as Hispanic nationals ó are partnering with violent Mexican drug gangs to finance terror networks in the Middle East, according to a Drug Enforcement Administration report.î She continues, ìThese terrorist groups, or sleeper cells, include people who speak Arabic, Spanish, and Hebrew and, for the most part, arouse no suspicion in their communities.î
To further complicate the issue, Peter Brown, terrorism, and security consultant, stated that the “biggest element” to the DEA report is the ease with which terrorist cells have taken on new identities. Radical Muslim terrorists have long been crossing the border. An El Paso, Texas, law-enforcement report documents the influx of “approximately 20 Arab persons a week utilizing the Travis County Court in Austin to change their names and driver’s licenses from Arabic to Hispanic surnamesî Ms. Carter reports.
Now jump to a more recent article by Ms. Carter, Drug cartel terrorist ties known in 2001, August 14, 2007. She was interviewing Asa Hutchinson, former director of the Drug Enforcement Administration where he stated, he ìwarned federal officials shortly after the September 11 attacks that violent drug cartels from Mexico were teaming with Muslim gangs to fund terrorist organizations overseas.î Do not forget the MS 13 gang members who will soon become the new organized mob for the 21st Century.
Now we see the NYPD intelligence report, Radicalization in the West and the Homegrown Threat that identifies two dozen ìhomegrownî terrorists, radical Islamic terrorist types. The report identifies mosques, bookstores, cafes, prisons and flop houses. Just look at what is happening in Europe with radical Muslims and you will see where we are going.
Keep this in mind when you hear our politicians talk about providing Green cards or a pass to citizenship to the estimated 25 million illegal aliens. The radical Islamic terrorists will also benefit from this.

Hindsight is 20/20 and I wish I could completely believe the National Border Patrol Council.
The problem is, when a local law enforcement officer does arrest an individual who happens to be illegal it is often difficult to get the Federal Government to act on the situation. To actually take custody of that individual. I recall a story about a local Sherrif, either from Maine or New Hampshire, who tried to get an illegal alien into Federal custody and couldn’t.
Yes, if the Newark Police had attempted to transfer custody, maybe it would have happened, or … maybe it wouldn’t have.

I am one of those Law Enforcement guys that called the old INS cerca 1996 and was told to stop calling them for pickup of Illegal Aliens unless they had committed certain felonies.
They refused to take illegal aliens unless they had been charged with violent felonies.
In addition, I got into major trouble with my own department and was chewed out by my captain for enforcing the law. I was told to stop charging Illegal Aliens.
Long story short, I resigned over this issue. When I took the oath it did not say I could pick and choose who to arrest for a felony committed in my presence.
There is a lot of finger pointing by both local law enforcement and the Feds. We did not get here because the suits wanted to enforce the law with Illegal Immigrants.IMHO-They are both responsible for the lack of enforcement.

ScottyDog, right, we’re not supposed to be like the London police department that allows muslim policemen to refuse duties like providing security at the Israeli Embassy.

This goes on in Mexico on a wholesale basis all the time…murders, executions, kidnapping, robberies, rape. I thought everybody knew that, and didn’t mind if the US becomes Mexico?? What’s the problem?

I say good for the Border Patrol.
All of the ills with regard to the illegal immigration problem aren’t as a result of Immigration and Customs Enforement, Customs and Border Protection and the Border Patrol not doing their job day after day.
I’ve said it in a prior post, shame on the City and Commissioners who don’t want to do what is right when it comes to the illegal immigration problem. Those cities who have become “Sanctuary Cities” sure whine when something happens and it’s the because of the action of an illegal alien. You can’t have it both ways. They complain if we do come into a business in their town and do a work site enforcement action, but then they also complain if a person who is in this country illegally commits rape, murder, etc. In many instances the person who committed this illegal act was previously in the custody of the state and local authorities and no call was made to ICE to let them know that person was in custody. Hello, just being in this country without the proper authorization is an illegal act.
Like I’ve said in the past, this country and it’s citizens do not have the stomach to do what is needed to take care of the illegal immigration problems, nor of many of the other problems this country faces. I wonder how many of you are going to have to have your identity stolen and sold to someone who is here illegally for you to want this country to really do something about the immigration issues facing this country.

I never turned down a request from an LEO or prosecutor for a hold when I served with INS, ever. And, Detention and Removal never failed to pick-up one of the holds. Out of the several hundred agents for the area about 15 million people, about 30 would do the same, so you have to keep making the call. Today is different, there are more agents, more money, and DRO is now hard charging controling its own destiny. Whoever killed a case of mine was noted in my file, not to protect myself or fingerpoint, but to document where the system failed and substantiate the need for more resources. Every alien I processed got “no bail”. I couldn’t control who let him out or reduced the bail, but only make sure I did everything I could.
Because Newark didn’t call, we will never know if the DA did everything they could, and it takes just a few minutes. Working the jail there is a different matter, not all jails can be completely covered 24/7 with hold on every single alien, look at LA County Jail with a daily population of 20,000 inmates 26% of which are illegal with room and resources to take maybe 100 aliens per day.
I faxed the US Attorney on every single alien that could be prosecuted and if they said no, it was on them. We did not have to point fingers because we could document the need for more attorneys if necessary.
If you don’t try the system can’t get fixed. The Newark DA’s excuse? NO EXCUSE. You failed, step aside before more people get killed!
And to say hindsight is 20/20? Step aside, you aren’t listening, it happens every day.
I have hard feelings only for the management federal, state, and local that would rather let someone get killed rather than to step up to the plate and swing.
This is a subject I know inside and out, numbers, money, personnel. We simply must demand that line be drawn in the sand. This line we will defend, no matter what it costs, no matter what it takes or who gets sent home. Illegal aliens are guests in this country, invited or not, this is our home, we make the rules not you, if you can’t follow the rules expect to be deported and held until such can be arranged. Take a bus, don’t drink, whatever, it’s time that the aliens explore other options that killing our citizens or their own in our house. Why are these concepts so difficult for our law makers, constituents, and enforcers to understand? Someone, somewhere pays the price for your Big Mac, car wash, whatever, it’s not worth it. It’s about the money, so stop accepting the rationalizations, misplace sympathies, and racist allegations! Level the playing field so that everyone gets a fair shot at the money or in a few cases “the dream” nothing else but strict adherence to the law works, seriously.

I sure wish they had people like you in the INS for the N. California/Nevada region.From what I hear, it has not changed since I resigned.
I could not agree more with your contention that we have to draw a line in the sand.
As a side note, my former Departments leader has been indicted for corruption so I had some satisfaction knowing I was doing the right thing before I left.

ScottyDog on August 17, 2007 at 2:15 pm

‘NotAnAgent’, Americans are worthless, they’d throw you or me in jail faster than they would deport an illegal alien, just so nobody would think they’re intolerant.
They just put some White guy in prison for 8 years for getting into a fistfight with a Mexican, calling it a ‘hate crime’. 8 years is the average sentence for murder!
