Congressmen threatening General Kelly over immigration enforcement

Comment: General Kelly didn’t name the pip-squeeks who threatened him and ICE agents with reprisal if he went ahead with the Presidents new policy on detaining and deporting illegal aliens. With that said it wouldn’t be hard to figure out who those congressmen are. I would proffer they’re democrats who never met an illegal alien criminal whose ass they didn’t kiss. I feel certain that General Kelly’s statement regarding those threats will eventually lead to the exposure of left liberal democrats  who’re more concerned with getting the illegal alien vote than the safety of the American people. I would also add that those buffoons had better think twice about who they’re threatening ….WFM

DHS chief says members of Congress ‘threaten’ him over immigration enforcement

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said Thursday that members of Congress have tried to “threaten” him over his department’s stepped up enforcement of the immigration laws they wrote, and called for even stiffer laws to punish sanctuary cities and repeat-illegal immigrants.

Mr. Kelly said he was “offended” by those lawmakers — who he didn’t name — who he said “often threaten me and my officers” when they try to enforce laws that call for the deportation of illegal immigrants.

It’s the latest blunt criticism from the retired Marine general, who has previously told members of Congress to “shut up” rather than criticize him over the laws they wrote.

He appeared Thursday on Capitol Hill with Speaker Paul D. Ryan and other Republicans, hours before the House was slated to vote on two new crackdown laws.

One would increase penalties on illegal immigrants who have been deported yet snuck back into the U.S. and later committed other crimes. That bill is named Kate’s law, after Kathryn Steinle, the woman killed by an illegal immigrant two years ago while walking the San Francisco waterfront with her father.

The other new bill would punish so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to let authorities cooperate with federal immigration officers trying to deport illegal immigrants.

Mr. Kelly said sanctuary cities aren’t actually sanctuaries, but rather make their communities more dangerous by shielding illegal immigrants.

    They are breaking the law by protecting illegal invaders. It’s called human trafficking. They should be arrests and charges with treason against our sovereignty.

    They are breaking the law by protecting illegal invaders. It’s called human trafficking. They should be arrested and charged with treason against our sovereignty. Not to mention the embezzlement of our treasury to support these invaders.

    Congress can change the law if they don’t like it. Until then, shut the hell up and let the man do his job.

    He is only trying to do his job. He is enforcing the laws of the land and there isn’t anything they can do about it. If they don’t like it change the law but they can’t they are out numbered for now!

    “Illegal Alien”: The Proper Terminology

    “Illegal Alien”: The Proper Terminology

    Under federal law, any non-U.S. citizen is an alien. Aliens who have entered the United States without permission, or who have violated the terms of their admission, are identified under the law as illegal aliens. That is a fact, not an issue for debate.
    It is also a fact that, according to U.S. law, it is a crime to enter the United States without permission. The first offense is a misdemeanor, the second, a felony. It is true, however, that most violations of immigration law are dealt with in a civil court and not in a criminal court. An immigration judge is really an administrative adjudicator who has authority under the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) to determine whether or not an individual is deportable under U.S. law. This procedure for handling immigration cases is designed to speed up the process of deportation; it should not be interpreted as an indication that illegal immigration is not a criminal violation. Because illegal aliens are not U.S. citizens, they are not entitled to the full panoply of rights and privileges under the Constitution as are citizens. Thus, they can be held subject to a non-judicial ruling instead of a jury trial for their criminal violation of immigration law.
    Despite the clarity in the U.S. code on proper terminology, what is known in legal parlance as the “term of art,” a political movement has arisen whose object is to substitute euphemism for precision. A variety of motivations underlie this effort, but regardless of intent, the goal is the same. Insistence on alternate terms such as “undocumented worker” represent a deliberate avoidance of the central and inescapable fact that millions of people are illegally residing in the United States in direct violation of democratically enacted and popularly supported law. Those who object to the use of the term “illegal alien” appear to believe that if they can convince the American public that illegal immigration is not really illegal, then amnesty no longer is amnesty, and enforcing immigration law is unnecessary.

    What does the meaning “Illegal” mean if it does not mean that a law was broken. If any elected representative skirts this it is breaking the law and they should be convicted. If they continue to break the law the penalties should be increased…And may I add, the laws need to be so clear that Lawyers can not prance around it.
