Not a ‘Rayos’ of Hope for the Deported Mother of Two

See what I did there – a little play on words – you know – Ray – Rayos – cause her name is Rayos?

Anyway, the whole nation has been abuzz over the recent deportation of a poor Arizona wife and mother of two, who was forcibly detained, summarily tossed into the back of a police van and shipped back to Mexico.

As an immediate aside – may I offer an observation? The left always describes their “victims” as poor, pitiful, helpless waifs – especially when women are involved. Many leftist sites described the now deported Guadalupe García de Rayos as simply a wife and mother, and only a wife and mother. So may I ask – just where is the radical National Organization for Women, the Nags? Isn’t just being a wife and mother objectifying her? Because we know that just being a wife and mother is never good enough.

Anyway – just an observation of the inconsistency of the left.

MoveOn.org, choking back a tear, wrote that she was “locked up and then deported the next day. Her kids will grow up without their mother. This was part of a multi-state, coordinated sweep that is terrorizing immigrant communities…” (Emphasis added)

And all because she was just doing what she was told and has done for the past 10 years – doing a “routine check-in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).” read more

An Orchestrated Immigration Wave At The Texas Border

from IBD:

Immigration: As an unprecedented wave of undocumented children from Central America spills over our Texas border, a veteran lawmen’s organization has declared it an “orchestrated” event. If so, who benefits?

To date, there hasn’t been a word from the White House or its agencies urging families in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador not to send their children alone through Mexico’s merciless badlands infested with cartel criminals to reach the U.S. There’s some Twitter activity and little else. read more

Border Flood is Purposeful

from WND:

NEW YORK – Two U.S. congressmen tell WND they believe the flooding of America’s Southwest border with thousands of illegal-alien children seeking government handouts and citizenship is the intended outcome of policies by the Obama administration derived from a strategy by radical sociologists to transform America into a socialist state.

In the 1960s, professors Andrew Cloward and Francis Fox Piven of Columbia University, Obama’s alma mater, devised a plan to provoke chaos by deliberately overwhelming governmental systems and the U.S. economy to the point of collapse, paving the way for state intervention that would ultimately replace America’s free-enterprise republic with a collectivist system.

“I do feel this attempt to flood the border with illegals is a playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory,” said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

“If you don’t see them bring reinforcements down there to seal the border, that means that, yes, it’s a Cloward-Piven maneuver to flood the country until we get to the point where we are an open-borders country that welcomes everybody, legal and illegal,” he told WND.

Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, agreed that Obama – who studied the chaos strategy at Columbia, according to a classmate – “is trying to do a Cloward-Piven thing with the border.” read more

Deported Criminals Return Illegally at Alarming Rate

by:

There are hundreds of thousands of aliens crossing the US border illegally every year.  Less than half of them are ever detained and even fewer of the detainees are ever deported back to their home countries.  Working under President Obama’s orders most illegal aliens are rewarded for their actions and released back into our society where they steal jobs, food and medical benefits from US citizens and often ruin neighborhoods and property values.

Supposedly, the government concentrates mostly on illegals who already have a criminal record.  (Doesn’t violating our immigration laws automatically classify them as a ICEcriminal?)  In the fiscal year of 2011, a total of 188,380 illegals with criminal records were deported.  However, 86,699 of them had been previously deported at least once.  That’s a return rate of 46%, which indicates that we have a complete failure to secure our borders from known criminal elements.

Additionally, there were another 43,307 illegals without criminal records who had been previously deported and again illegally entered the US.  Even though it is a crime to cross the US border illegally, none of the 43,307 are considered to have criminal records.

According to a report issued by the Center for Immigration Studies:

“It cannot be ascertained from the available data how many of the 86,699 previously deported criminals committed new crimes other than their illegal return, but unless they were detained shortly after re-entering the United States, it is likely that they came to the attention of the immigration authorities as a result of new crimes (committed after their illegal re-entry) for which they were convicted or arraigned.”

“The 46 percent may also be understated due to reclassification of criminal deportees. Thus existing data indicate that a minimum of 46 percent of the 2011 criminal deportees were previously deported and returned to the United States.”

“The high percentage of repeat deportees is due in part to the mexicali-deporteesease of re-entry to the United States for earlier deportees and the knowledge that if apprehended there is only a small chance that they will serve any prison time for illegal re-entry.”

“In nearly all cases the deportee will go undetected unless charged with another crime or if the deportee returns to his old neighborhood and is recognized by local law enforcement officials. Thus the number of deportees who make an illegal re-entry is possibly much higher than indicated.”

“The extent of our revolving door for deported criminal illegal immigrants points to failures in securing our nation’s borders. These failures do not bode well for our future ability to intercept known and unknown terrorists who try to gain access to our country.”

Reports like this clearly indicate that the Department of Homeland Security is doing very little to secure our borders.  Their cavalier attitude towards illegal immigration is a disgrace and an affront to most US citizens.  If this many illegals are returning and many going completely undetected, then how many terrorists are also crossing into our country illegally?

The US-Mexico border is an open door for anyone, including terrorists, to just walk rightbig sis in to the country, where they can then carry out the planning and execution of their jihad activities.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan and station them along the US-Mexico borders with orders to detain and shoot if necessary.  Military patrols should be stationed in a line of sight with each other across the entire extent of the border.  They should also be the ones to man and operate all border crossing stations.  This would result in a drastic cut in the amount of illegal aliens and drugs that are currently flowing into the US across the Mexican border.  It would also make it harder for terrorists to gain entry in to the country.  I believe it’s a win-win answer to illegal immigration, drugs and keeping our military safe at home securing our borders instead of the borders of countries that hate us.
