    Border Patrol Chief: 5,800 'Fake Families' Discovered at the Border



    Source: PJmedia

    WASHINGTON -- Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan told a Senate committee on Tuesday that 5,800 "fake families" have been discovered trying to enter the U.S. illegally this year.



    "Our laws prevent us from holding people more than 20 days and because we can't get the information we're probably releasing them even sooner than that in many cases, correct?" Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) asked Morgan during a Senate Homeland Security hearing on the border crisis.

    "With respect to family units, since March of this year, United States Border Patrol has been releasing family units directly so in some cases they're being released in under 48 hours into the interior of the United States," Morgan said.

    Johnson replied, "Because it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense to try and find facilities to hold them for 20 days with this overwhelming flow so instead of border patrol turning them over to ICE for a more thorough vetting process and then ICE releasing them, border patrol is doing it directly?"

    "That's correct," Morgan, who also served in the Obama administration, responded.

    Johnson said releasing undocumented migrant families into the general public without thorough vetting presents a "real danger" to public safety but also to the migrants themselves.

    "Especially with the amount of fake families that we are uncovering every single day," Morgan said.

    Johnson said U.S. authorities "do not have the time to determine" if migrant children are with their parents or human traffickers.

    "It's a challenge," Morgan replied. "As long as our laws are the way they are you are going to grab a kid because that is your passport to the United States. They know that in the Northern Triangle countries and they are exploiting that every single day."

    On April 30, 2019, it was reported that the Department of Homeland Security was starting DNA testing to determine family connections at the border. Later in the hearing, Johnson asked Morgan about the number of "fraudulent families" that have been uncovered due to DNA testing pilot programs used at the border.

    "I don't have the overall percentage but we do have the numbers. Right now at border patrol, 5,800 and HSI, part of ICE, they've identified hundreds since their pilot program of pushing agents forward," Morgan said.

    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Hundreds of protesters gathered in Aurora on Friday evening to march to the ICE detention facility where illegal and undocumented immigrants are being housed. They also removed the U.S. flag, replaced it with a Mexican flag, and spray painted graffiti on a Blue Lives Matter flag before it was seen flying upside down on the flag pole.

    This comes before planned ICE raids in Denver and 10 other cities nationwide.

    The protesters say they are demonstrating against the treatment of the people living inside. The Blue Lives Matter flag was vandalized with “Abolish ICE” in spray paint.

    The original flags outside the ICE facility, including the U.S. flag and Colorado flag were placed on the flag poles after the crowd dispersed. The Mexican flag and spray painted Blue Lives Matter flag were removed.

    US to deny citizenship to immigrants who use public benefits


    The administration of US President Donald Trump has announced new rules that aim to deny permanent residency and citizenship to migrants who receive food stamps, Medicaid and other public welfare.


    The change threatens to set back the citizenship hopes of millions of mostly Hispanic migrants who work for low wages and depend in part on public services to get by. It also appeared to close the door for impoverished and low-skilled migrants outside the country hoping to legally obtain a foothold in the United States.


    Announcing a new definition of the longstanding "public charge" law, the White House said hopeful migrants will not be granted resident visas if they are likely to need public assistance. In addition, those already here and using public services will not be able to obtain green cards or US citizenship.


    "To protect benefits for American citizens, immigrants must be financially self-sufficient," President Trump said in a White House statement. The ruling could impact many of the 22 million non-citizen legal residents of the country, and the estimated 10.5 million unauthorised immigrants, most long-term residents in both groups. It immediately was thrown into question by pro-migrant activists planning to sue and from Democrats in Congress who said they would fight it. "This administration scapegoats immigrants, emboldens white supremacists, and tears families apart. This is racist policy. We will continue fighting to #ProtectFamilies," tweeted Representative Donna Shalala.


    The White House said "large numbers" of migrants "have taken advantage of our generous public benefits, limited resources that could otherwise go to vulnerable Americans."


    It said half of all non-citizen households include at least one person using Medicaid, the government-run health program, and that 78% of households led by a non-citizen with no more than a high school education use at least one welfare program.


    "Through the public charge rule, President Trump's administration is reinforcing the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, ensuring that immigrants are able to support themselves and become successful here in America," said Ken Cuccinelli, acting Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services. Mr Cuccinelli said that the new standards would be used to judge non-citizen residents who use public services repeatedly after 15 October 2019.


    The services that count against an applicant include federal, state and local cash and income assistance, food stamps from the federal SNAP program, Medicaid, and subsidised housing. Mr Cuccinelli stressed that the new rules did not apply to public assistance programs for children or pregnant women, or emergency room care.


    As for hopeful immigrants, they would have to demonstrate the ability to live in the United States without resorting to public assistance.


    The changes to the "public charge" rules have been in the works since 2018, as part of Donald Trump's campaign to slash both legal and illegal immigration. In May, Mr Trump announced a broad plan for immigration "that protects American wages, promotes American values, and attracts the best and brightest from all around the world.""As a result of our broken rules, the annual green card flow is mostly low-wage and low-skilled," he said.


    He said the newcomers "compete for jobs against the most vulnerable Americans" and weigh heavily on welfare programs. "We're not able to give preference to a doctor, a researcher, a student who graduated number one in his class from the finest colleges in the world - anybody."


    In a study last month, the Urban Institute said the new regulations, when proposed last year, were already driving immigrant families to curtail their use of public services. Some were pulling out of the SNAP program, leaving them with "insufficient resources for food and adequate nutrition." In addition, staying away from Medicaid "put people in a position of forgoing treatment for chronic conditions and preventive medical care."


    The National Immigration Law Center announced that it would sue to block the implementation of the new rules, calling them a "racially motivated policy.""This news is a cruel new step toward weaponising programs that are intended to help people," said Marielena Hincapie, NILC executive director. "It will have a dire humanitarian impact, forcing some families to forego critical life-saving health care and nutrition. The damage will be felt for decades to come."

    It’s the same in every Western country.

    No country has ever survived islam. Add mass migration and it’s the end.

    Jurors refuse to convict activist facing 20 years for helping migrants



    Source: TheGuardian

    Jury could not reach a verdict against Scott Daniel Warren who was arrested in 2018 for giving migrants water, food and lodging

    A US jury could not reach a verdict on Tuesday against a border activist who, defense attorneys say, was simply being kind by providing two migrants with water, food and lodging when he was arrested in early 2018.

    Scott Daniel Warren, a 36-year-old college geography instructor, was charged with conspiracy to transport and harbor migrants in a trial that humanitarian aid groups said would have wide implications for their work. He faced up to 20 years in prison.

    Prosecutors maintained the men were not in distress and Warren conspired to transport and harbor them at a property used for providing aid to migrants in an Arizona town near the US-Mexico border.

    The case played out as humanitarian groups say they are coming under increasing scrutiny under Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies.

    Outside the courthouse, Warren thanked his supporters and criticized the government’s efforts to crack down on the number of immigrants coming to the US.

    “Today it remains as necessary as ever for local residents and humanitarian aid volunteers to stand in solidarity with migrants and refugees, and we must also stand for our families, friends and neighbors in the very land itself most threatened by the militarization of our borderland communities,” Warren said.

    Glenn McCormick, a spokesman for the US attorney’s office in Arizona, declined to comment on whether Warren would face another trial. The judge set a 2 July status hearing for the defense and prosecution.

    Warren is one of nine members of the humanitarian aid group No More Deaths who have been charged with crimes related to their work. But he is the only one to face felony charges.

    In west Texas, a county attorney was detained earlier this year after stopping her car on a dark highway to pick up three young migrants who flagged her down. Teresa Todd was held briefly, and federal agents searched her cellphone.

    Border activists say they worry about what they see as the gradual criminalization of humanitarian action.

    Warren has said his case could set a dangerous precedent by expanding the definition of the crimes of transporting and harboring migrants to include people merely trying to help border-crossers in desperate need of water or other necessities.

    Warren and other volunteers with the No More Deaths group also were targeted this year in separate federal misdemeanor cases after leaving water, canned food and other provisions for migrants hiking through the Cabeza Prieta national wildlife refuge in southern Arizona.

    In Warren’s felony case, the defense team headed by Greg Kuykendall argued that Warren could not, in good conscience, turn away two migrants who had recently crossed the desert to enter the US.

    Jurors said on Monday that they could not reach a consensus on the charges against Warren, but a federal judge told them to keep deliberating. They were still deadlocked on Tuesday and ultimately dismissed.

    Thousands of migrants have died crossing the border since the mid-1990s, when heightened enforcement pushed migrant traffic into Arizona’s scorching deserts.
