Illegal immigrants take the train to America.

The Obama administration is floating a rationale through the media that Congress has not provided the resources to enforce immigration laws as justification for the expected pronouncement by President Barack Obama by the end of summer to grant legal status to millions of illegal aliens.

Josh Lederman reported for the AP on Wednesday:

“…as a self-imposed, end-of-summer deadline to act approaches, Obama’s lawyers are carefully crafting a legal rationale they believe will withstand scrutiny and survive any court challenges, administration officials say.

“The argument goes something like this: Beyond failing to fix broken immigration laws, Congress hasn’t even provided the government with enough resources to fully enforce the laws already on the books. With roughly 11.5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally — far more than the government could reasonably deport — the White House believes it has wide latitude to prioritize which of those individuals should be sent home.”

That excuse is a fraud.

Congress has not cut funding for enforcement yet under Obama annual total deportations have plummeted to half that of his predecessor, President George W. Bush, to numbers not seen since the combined administrations of Presidents Nixon and Ford in the 1970s.

Obama has been nicknamed the ‘deporter-in-chief’ by amnesty advocates playing the inside/outside game with the administration of applying public pressure on Obama against deportations while at the same time engaging in private meetings strategizing for amnesty with Obama and his administration.

The ‘deporter-in-chief’ nickname plays on an Obama sleight-of-hand on deportation numbers that on the surface indicate Obama has been tough on illegal immigration. The real numbers reveal an astonishing gutting of immigration enforcement by Obama.

As reported by Byron York at the Washington Examiner Wednesday evening in an article entitled No, Our Immigration System Is Not Broken, total annual deportations under Obama have dropped by over 200,000 in two years from 857,306 in 2010 to 649,352 in 2012 according to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) statistics.

A Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) report by Jessica Vaughan published in December 2013 contrasted the annual average of Obama’s total deportations with previous administrations going back to the 1950s.

Obama’s average is about 800,000 through 2012, the latest year available from DHS. President Richard Nixon averaged about 400,000 and President Gerald Ford about 800,000. From the Reagan years through Bush 43 the average total deportations topped one million every year. That came to a sudden halt under Obama.

According to CIS the average of annual total deportations under President George W. Bush was 1,291,106.

Under Obama in 2012 that number was halved to 649,352.

A question that needs to be answered is what has Obama done with the money Congress appropriated for deportations that he is not spending on deportations?

An excerpt from York’s article details the Obama’s deportation numbers and categories of deportees. York’s analysis doesn’t mention that while Obama has indeed curtailed interior immigration, enforcement he has also pulled back border enforcement: Witness the welcome mat rolled out for illegal alien children and families by the Obama administration in 2013 and 2014.

“Then there is border security and interior enforcement. The 2012 DHS Yearbook includes a figure called “Aliens Apprehended,” which counts illegal immigrants caught at the border and in the states. The number has been going down through the Obama administration —from 869,828 in 2009 to 752,307 in 2010 to 641,601 in 2011 to 643,474 in 2012. (The 2012 figure is lower than any year since 1973.) Some of the decrease is due to the fact that a weak U.S. economy attracts fewer illegal immigrants. But much of it is because the Obama administration has made a deliberate decision to downgrade interior enforcement.

“As for deportations, the illegal immigrants sent home by the U.S. each year fall into two broad categories: those who are “removed” from the country and those who are “returned” to their home countries. There’s a difference. Removal is the more serious of the two; an illegal immigrant is deemed removed from the U.S. based on an order by a judge or immigration authorities and will face criminal penalties if he tries to come back. An illegal immigrant who is returned is sent back to his home country but would not face criminal penalties if he tries to return to the U.S. illegally and is eligible to come to the U.S. legally in the future.

“The number of removals has gone up each year pretty steadily for the last 20 years, including during the Obama administration. The most recent numbers were 383,031 removals in 2010; 388,409 in 2011; and 419,384 in 2012. But the number of returns has fallen dramatically under Obama: 474,275 in 2010 to 322,164 in 2011 to 229,968 in 2012. If you add removals and returns together, total deportations have fallen significantly under Obama: 857,306 in 2010 to 710,573 in 2011 to 649,352 in 2012.

“Does that mean the system is broken? No — it means the Obama administration has made a policy decision to expel fewer people who entered the country illegally.”

Michelle Obama’s Latest Sappy Email: “I Need You”

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, August 28, 2014, 7:17 PM

“I Need You”
michelle dscc

Michelle Obama sent out this email to supporters today warning them that Republicans are coming for your Social Security and Medicare.
“I need you”

Jim — This election boils down to three simple questions:

I don’t want to see Social Security and Medicare taken away — do you?

I don’t want sensible immigration or gun safety measures to fail — do you?

I don’t want birth control access to be rolled back — do you?

If you answered no, I need you to help me. We are just six seats away from losing the Senate, which could mean everything we’ve fought for — everything we believe in — would be at risk. I am not exaggerating here: This is the most urgent moment we’ve faced yet.

Will you pitch in to keep the Senate in Democratic hands before the FEC deadline in 72 hours? All gifts will be triple matched — so whatever you give will bring in three times more support.

A panga boat full of illegal aliens stormed the beach in San Diego Monday.
The illegals sprinted across a beach and climbed over a wall.

Several were captured, the rest disappeared.
CNS News reported:

Illegal aliens successfully landed on a San Diego beach in a panga boat on Monday and ran to shore – but, when another group tried the same thing on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border (CBP) agents were waiting for them.

Around 7am Monday morning, a horde of illegal aliens stormed a San Diego beach after coming ashore in a panga boat. They sprinted across the beach and climbed over a wall, entering the city.

Seven of the illegal aliens were spotted by helicopter and later apprehended several blocks from the beach; the CBP is still looking for at least ten more who remain at-large, NBC7 in San Diego reports.

Then, about 1am Tuesday morning, a second panga boat filled with 20 illegal aliens was intercepted about off the coast of San Diego County by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

Meanwhile… Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto thanked California on Thursday for aiding illegals.

BREAKING VIDEO: Russian Army Tanks Invade #Ukraine

Russia Invades Ukraine–
NSDC has posted a video of the Russian army tanks in Novoazovsk

More>>> A verified footage of Russian armour column in a Ukrainian village near the border was released.

Russian troops and tanks invaded Ukraine today.
The New York Times reported:

Declaring that Russian troops had crossed into Ukraine, President Petro O. Poroshenko on Thursday canceled a planned visit to Turkey and convened a meeting of the national security council to focus on the “marked aggravation of the situation” in the southeast of his country.

The meeting of the national security council will focus on shaping a response, and Ukraine will also request a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

Mr. Poroshenko made his comments as the leader of the main separatist group in southeastern Ukraine said that up to 4,000 Russians, including active-duty soldiers on leave, had been fighting against Ukrainian government forces, Russian television reported.

“There are active soldiers fighting among us who preferred to spend their vacation not on the beach, but with us, among their brothers, who are fighting for their freedom,” Aleksandr Zakharchenko, a rebel commander and the prime minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic, said in an interview on Russian state-run television.

Dear Mr. Barack Obama…


North Korea Lectures #Ferguson Police on Excessive Use of Force

Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, August 28, 2014, 10:34 AM

Actual RFT caption: When North Korea is calling your country “a graveyard of human rights,” you know something’s wrong.

The freedom-loving regime in North Korea lectured Ferguson for their “brutal” response to Ferguson looters and rioters. This is the same regime that reportedly executed a top official by flamethrower.
The Riverfront Times reported:

North Korea loves to hate on the United States. The armistice that stopped the Korean War in 1953 never really ended it, and Kim Jong-un’s propaganda machine churns out anti-American rhetoric like we’re still knee-deep in bloody conflict.

So it’s not surprising that the isolationist regime released its own statement criticizing how law enforcement handled the massive unrest that took over Ferguson after officer Darren Wilson shot and killed unarmed eighteen-year-old Michael Brown. Quite the opposite. The last few weeks have been a North Korean propaganda minister’s wet dream.

But that doesn’t make North Korea’s statement on the brutal police response to Ferguson protesters any less unsettling.

On Monday the Korean Central News Agency came down hard on America, especially on St. Louis police, for the heavy-handed military response to protests against police brutality.

“Police ruthlessly cracked down on protesters, leveling their rifles at them and firing tear gas and smoke shells,” the statement says. “[The U.S.] should not seek solutions to its problem in suppressing demonstrators but bring to light the real picture of the American society, a graveyard of human rights, and have a correct understanding of what the genuine human rights are like and how they should be guaranteed.”

It should be noted that the far left Riverfront Times supported the looters and rioters in Ferguson this past month.
