“Whites had the highest rate of overdose deaths of any ethnicity, more than double the combined death rate for blacks and Latinos.”

While the declining job market in the United States may be discouraging some would-be border crossers, a flow of illegal aliens continues unabated, with many entering the United States as drug-smuggling “mules.”


"Peña Nieto finds himself caught between the overwhelming popular hostility toward both Trump and his own government (his approval ratings have dipped below 12 percent), and the desire of the Mexican capitalist ruling elite that he represents to continue to secure its profit interests as a junior partner of US imperialism."

Amid Mexico talks, Trump calls deportations a “military operation”

By Bill Van Auken
24 February 2017

Two days after rolling out a draconian immigration policy that threatens the deportation of millions of undocumented workers and their families, President Donald Trump described the unfolding crackdown as “a military operation.”

Speaking to a White House gathering Thursday of top corporate bosses, including the CEOs of Dow Chemical, General Electric, Lockheed Martin and Caterpillar Inc., Trump hailed the escalation of repression on the US-Mexican border along with the recent series of Immigration Control and Enforcement (ICE) raids that resulted in the roundup of several hundred immigrants from coast to coast.

“We’re getting really bad dudes out of this country and at a rate that nobody has ever seen before,” said Trump, adding, “And it’s a military operation because what has been allowed to come into our country—when you see gang violence that you’ve read about like never before and all of the things—much of that is people that are here illegally. And they’re rough and they’re tough, but they’re not tough like our people. So we’re getting them out.”

Asked to clarify Trump’s remark, White House spokesman Sean Spicer argued that the president was using the word “military” as an “adjective,” meant to convey that the ICE raids were “happening with precision.”

Trump’s bullying and bellicose remarks coincided with a public appearance by his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly in Mexico City alongside their Mexican counterparts in what was billed as an attempt to strengthen relations between the two countries following a series of blatant provocations over Trump’s proposed border wall, attacks on immigrants, threats to impose tariffs and suggestion that US troops could be sent into Mexico to wage the so-called drug war.

Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto was forced to call off a scheduled state visit to Washington last month over Trump’s crude insistence that Mexico pay for his proposed wall.

Speaking before the Mexican media, Gen. Kelly, the former commander of US Southern Command, which oversees all US military operations in Latin America and the Caribbean, pledged, “There will be no use of military forces in immigration,” Kelly said. “There will be no—repeat, no—mass deportations.”

This assurance follows the leaking last week of a Department of Homeland Security memo calling for the mobilization of 100,000 National Guard troops to hunt down and detain immigrant workers. While disavowed by the White House, it is clear that a martial law crackdown was under discussion within the US administration.

Kelly’s statement on Thursday, which appeared to be directly contradicted by Trump’s boasting about the immigration crackdown to the US corporation heads, followed his attempt to walk back part of the language contained in two Department of Homeland Security memorandums laying out the Trump administration’s reactionary and repressive immigration enforcement policy.

A provision that touched off heated protests from Mexican officials calls for Border Patrol and ICE agents, to deal with detained immigrants who are not deemed a threat of “subsequent illegal entry” by “returning them to the foreign contiguous territory from which they arrived,” to await the decision of immigration courts on their removal proceedings. The provision calls for these immigrants to appear before the court via “video teleconference.”

The memo argued that this procedure would save US detention facilities for other undocumented workers caught in the planned immigration dragnet.

As most of the immigrants detained at the border are not Mexicans—220,000 out of 400,000 in the fiscal year that ended on September 30—with the largest number consisting of refugees fleeing violence and oppression in Central America, the provision essentially calls for dumping citizens of third countries into Mexico to solve an alleged problem in the US.

Mexico’s Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray rejected the new US policy. “The government and the people of Mexico will not accept the new immigration policies of the United States,” he said, vowing that Mexico would go to the United Nations to charge Washington with human rights violations against immigrants.

Videgaray is among the more right-wing figures in the Peña Nieto government, a former investment banker with ties to Trump advisors. He was forced to resign from an earlier post because of public outrage over his arranging a visit to Mexico by then-presidential candidate Trump that had all the trappings of a state visit. Now, however, he has been compelled to denounce the Trump administration for attempting to impose a “unilateral” policy on Mexico.

He threatened that if the US went ahead with trying to send non-Mexican immigrants back across the Mexican border, Mexico would not accept them and would demand that Washington provide proof of Mexican citizenship for anyone it seeks to deport to the country. Such a policy could lead to a roadblock in front of mass deportations and force the US government to indefinitely detain huge numbers of arrested immigrants.

Others have suggested that Mexico could retaliate against Washington’s aggressive policies by halting its own repressive crackdown on Central American immigrants trying to cross Mexico’s southern border en route to the US. Last year, Mexico sent nearly twice as many Central American migrants back to their countries as the US did, doing Washington’s dirty work.

Tensions over the new immigration policy were such that Mexican government officials warned that a planned meeting between the two US secretaries and President Peña Nieto would not take place unless significant agreements were reached beforehand.

In the end, however, Tillerson and Kelly met for an hour with Peña Nieto at the Los Pinos presidential palace in Mexico City, arriving and leaving in a heavily-guarded armored convoy.

Mexico’s official news agency Notimex reported that the Mexican president told the US officials that Mexico “will always negotiate in a comprehensive manner with a firm position and in favor of the country’s interests.” He also reportedly stated that protecting the interests of Mexicans residing in the US was a priority for his government.

At the same time, he called for the “strengthening of dialogue” and said the presence of the two US cabinet members was an indication of the Trump administration’s interest “in building a positive relation that results in better conditions of security, development and prosperity for both countries.”

Neither side gave any indication that agreements had been reached on any of the issues that have brought US-Mexican relations to one of their lowest points since the Mexican-American war 170 years ago.

Peña Nieto finds himself caught between the overwhelming popular hostility toward both Trump and his own government (his approval ratings have dipped below 12 percent), and the desire of the Mexican capitalist ruling elite that he represents to continue to secure its profit interests as a junior partner of US imperialism.

At the same time, the ruling PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) faces the prospect of defeat in the 2018 elections at the hands of the Morena (Movement for National Regeneration) of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a veteran bourgeois politician who is leading the polls on the basis of a vaguely left nationalist appeal, accusing Peña Nieto of corruption and failing to stand up to Trump.

Peña Nieto and the Mexican bourgeoisie as a whole are no more concerned about Mexican immigrant workers facing a reign of fear and terror in the US than they are about the plight of masses of impoverished workers in Mexico itself. Their main aim is to prevent the return of millions of jobless deportees, along with the cutting off of remittances and a sharp escalation of already-explosive social upheavals in Mexico itself.

Disquiet within American ruling circles over Trump’s new policies found expression Thursday in an editorial published in the Wall Street Journal, which warned that the new immigration crackdown is “so sweeping that it could capture law-abiding immigrants whose only crime is using false documents to work. This policy may respond to the politics of the moment, but chasing down maids and meatpackers will not go down as America’s finest hour.”

The editorial went on to question the spending of tens of billions of dollars on Trump’s proposed border wall, along with the hiring of 15,000 more ICE and Border Patrol agents, together with a massive expansion of detention facilities. At the same time, the Journal expressed fears that a “labor shortage” and the lack of any mechanism to import low-wage immigrants could adversely affect profit interests.

Trump’s anti-immigrant demagogy and the savagely repressive policies he has introduced are aimed at scapegoating immigrants for the conditions created by capitalism in order to weaken and divide the working class. These attacks can be countered only on the basis of the fight to unify immigrant and US-born workers in a fight to block the deportations and to unite workers on both sides of the border in a common struggle against the capitalist system.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Emergency Intervention Needed in California NOW!

By Arthur Schaper

Townhall.com, February 13, 2017

In California, illegals can vote: it’s possible and very likely. California’s automatic motor-voter law all but assures that illegals seeking driver’s licenses will get a ballot along with their license. Miscreants from any corner of the world can register to vote in California online, too. No vetting, no assurance, no integrity. I don’t care how loudly the SJWs and the loony left-wing donors scream about Hillary’s popular vote victory. Voter fraud in broken inner city hellholes like Detroit and New York City cannot compare with the ballot stuffing throughout the once Golden State.

Besides, four million of us Californians supported Donald Trump, and don’t regret it! And we were honest about it!

This post, this article is a fervent call to action to our new Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“This nation no longer is a democratic republic...rather it has become a tool of the super-rich members of the above mentioned elite who preselect our presidents based on their cooperation and complicity with the elite’s ultimate goals. Obama has, in their opinion done superbly carrying out the plans well laid out for him by his backers.”


“The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates that American workers lose $190 billion annually (DATED FIGURES) in depressed wages caused by the constant flooding of the labor market at the low-wage end.”   --- Christian Science Monitor

AMNESTY… It’s all about keeping wages DEPRESSED!




As economist Philip J. Romero concluded in a 2007 study, "illegal immigrants impose a 'tax' on legal California residents in the tens of billions of dollars."

California must stem the flow of illegal immigrants

The state should go after employers who hire them, curb taxpayer-funded benefits, deploy the National Guard to help the feds at the border and penalize 'sanctuary' cities.

“Illegal immigration is another matter entirely. With the state budget in tatters, millions of residents out of work and a state prison system strained by massive overcrowding, California simply cannot continue to ignore the strain that illegal immigration puts on our budget and economy. Illegal aliens cost taxpayers in our state billions of dollars each year. As economist Philip J. Romero concluded in a 2007 study, "illegal immigrants impose a 'tax' on legal California residents in the tens of billions of dollars."

Fed Appeals Court: Immigrant Who Voted

Illegally Can be Deported

Judicial Watch Corruption Chronicles, February 16, 2017

This week’s appellate court ruling provides a jolt of reality that the media has chosen to ignore. Election fraud was a significant concern in 2008 and 2010, which is why Judicial Watch launched an election integrity project in 2012. The project is a legal campaign to force cleanup of voter registration rolls as well as monitor elections. As an example of the pervasive fraud, Judicial Watch uncovered that 1,046 aliens, or residents who are not U.S. citizens, were on the voter rolls in eight Virginia counites leading up to the 2016 presidential election. If that rate of non-citizen registration held in the rest of Virginia’s counties, that would mean that about 6,500 non-citizens are registered to vote in the state. Additionally, Judicial Watch’s investigation found that 57,923 Virginians were registered to vote in at least one other state as well as 19 deceased individuals. Similar issues have been uncovered in several other states as part of Judicial Watch’s ongoing probe into election fraud.

The Latin American woman in the recent court ruling who voted illegally is hardly an isolated case. Her name is Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick and she lied about being an American citizen on an Illinois Department of Motor Vehicle form. It was that easy. Fitzpatrick, a legal U.S. resident with three kids, voted in two federal elections in 2006 and claims that she had official approval to cast a ballot after presenting her Peruvian passport and green card. An immigration judge and the Board of Immigration Appeals, the government’s highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws, determined that Fitzpatrick should be deported because non-U.S. citizens cannot vote in federal elections and can be removed from the country for doing so.


The New Mexican War

BeforeItsNews.com, February 12, 2017

Mexico had a major role in fostering guerrilla groups in Central America during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, backing off only when it became a hindrance to the NAFTA deal with the United States, and when some of the groups began operating in Mexico. Mexico is feared and resented throughout Central America as a bully and for its mistreatment of Central American migrants. The horror stories these migrants tell of their passage through Mexico are hair-raising and heartbreaking.

I wrote during the recent hysteria over Russian hacking and interference in our 2016 elections that,

Is there foreign interference in our elections? You bet.

The biggest offender? Not Russia, but Mexico. Mexican officials publicly called on Mexicans in the US to oppose Trump; Mexico’s over fifty–yes, fifty–consulates in the US (here) are hot beds of political activity and activism. Millions of illegal and legal aliens largely from Mexico and Central America vote, yes vote. We need to have an in-depth

investigation into Mexico’s interference in our elections, an

interference that goes well beyond revealing embarrassing

DNC texts.

Chicago Sheriff Openly Defies Federal Immigration Order

By Michael Bargo, Jr.

The same day that DHS issued its new guidelines regarding Immigration law enforcement, Tom Dart, the Sheriff of Cook County, IL; home of the City of Chicago, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the nation’s first Mayoral Sanctuary Policy, stated he has “no interest” in joining federal immigration efforts.  As if county sheriffs across the nation can pick and choose which federal laws they will, and will not, follow.

This is nothing new for Chicago, home of the first official mayor-issued sanctuary policy. Since 1985 Chicago has openly defied federal Immigration law; an interesting trend since no other area of federal law is defied as aggressively as immigration. Cara Smith, the policy chief for Sheriff Tom Dart, stated “We have not been approached nor would we be interested in participating in this program.” Then added, “Our focus is and will remain on addressing violence in the city.” Smith’s statements were reported by the Chicago Tribune. This comment would be

laughable if not for the fact that Chicago’s

children are murdered at a horrendous

rate on a daily basis, a trend that

skyrocketed under President Obama’s reign

in the White House.

The city of Chicago is entirely contained within Cook County. The county has authored some of the nation’s most outrageously illegal anti-immigration law policies. On September 30, 2003, the Cook County Commission’s Committee on Finance, led by Chairman Bill Daley (a brother of Mayor Daley) pass an ordinance declaring the Mexican “matricula consular” card a valid form of ID in Cook County. Then on March 15, 2006, Cook County Commissioner Roberto Maldonado introduced a resolution, which passed, resolving to fight HR 4437, a bill introduced in the U.S. Senate declaring illegal immigration a felony. Then onSept. 7, 2006 Maldonado sponsored another resolution declaring Cook County a “sanctuary county” for immigrants. Conveniently leaving out the word “illegal.” before immigrants. Then on April 30, 2007 Maldonado sponsored a resolution to declare Cook County a “Fair and Equal County for Immigrants.”

“Fair and Equal County for Immigrants.”


Bill Daley was Chairman of the Cook County Financial committee when they announced in 2004 that they would defy Federal law.

President Obama joined the rebellion against federal law when he sued Arizona over its state law, SB 1070, in 2012. The Chicago Public School system has also joined the movement to flout federal law: it issued memos to school principals not to allow immigration officials in schools without a warrant. It’s not surprising that given this defiance by its law enforcement and public school system, Hispanics in the city feel that they are above the law. Clearly, the battle lines have been drawn, and Chicago is the first big city to flout president Trump’s new effort to enforce existing immigration law, just as its mayor was the first to declare Chicago a sanctuary city.

The Democrat Party of the U.S. has a long history of manipulating “persons of color” going back two hundred years to the days of John Calhoun. In the 1820s, southern white slave owners began to rebel against the movement to abolish slavery, and warned that they would not respect the laws of new states which declared that slaves who traveled there would be free. This hostility toward the human rights of African Americans ultimately led to the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation, but defiant Democrats refused to acknowledge equality for persons of color and fought their right to vote.

The newest group of “persons of color” is the Hispanic group. Before 1970 Hispanic numbers in the U.S. were so low that the 1970 Census did not even list “Hispanic” as an ethnic category. In 1979 Los Angeles began the movement to encourage the settlement of illegal immigrants to the city, and in 1985 Chicago became the first big city to openly proclaim, through Executive Order 85-1 issued by its Mayor Harold Washington, that residents of the city

would be given city services and

employment opportunities regardless of

citizenship status.

Of course, the power “to establish a uniform rule of naturalization” is given by the Constitution only to Congress, not to Chicago or Cook County. But in the tradition of the manipulation of minorities Chicago and other big cities started up what I have called “Racism Version 2.0” by establishing themselves as sanctuary cities for Hispanic residents.

Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and other cities have absolutely no legal authority with regard to immigration law, yet they have all flouted Federal law and sought to carve out illegal immigrants as a group over which they have absolute control. And they have placed them in highly segregated neighborhoods, just as they have herded blacks into highly segregated areas, and with the promises

of benefits to single mothers, low income

housing, and food stamps, confining them to

lives of poverty and desperation ever since

the early 1930s.

This defiance was to be expected. Chicago has spawned defiance of federal immigration law for forty years. It will be interesting to see how President Trump reacts to this. Cook County’s Sheriff Dart has definitely drawn a line in the sand, and dared Trump to do anything about it. Should Trump refuse to act and allow Chicago to defy the rule of Federal law, then other sanctuary cities will follow.

Why Chicago promotes illegal immigration and shields immigrants from federal law enforcement is not difficult to understand. It’s all about political power and money. In the 1982 gubernatorial election an FBI investigation found that over 80,000 illegal aliens illegally voted. And today each person in the state of Illinois brings in $4,000 worth of Federal block grant money. This, in addition to the DACA money, public housing, WIC food stamp program, school lunch, ESL (English as a second language) and dozens of other programs. Illinois, Cook County and the city of Chicago are now all heavily dependent on the Hispanic illegal immigrant population as a source of local, state and federal benefit dollars. It’s not just Hispanics who are illegal but other nationalities as well: Chicago has a large recently arrived Polish immigrant population as well as those from southeastern Europe who came as refugees after the Bosnian war.

The CPS system is heavily dependent upon federal dollars for its operating expenses. Nevertheless, the CPS memo to principals clearly stated its position: “To be very clear, CPS does not provide assistance to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law.”

The Chicago Public School system has no legal authority to enforce, or deny enforcement, of Federal immigration law. Not since the Little Rock, Arkansas school system defied segregation orders in the 1950s have public schools open defied federal government law enforcement directives.

If Cook County Sheriff Dart can refuse to cooperate with federal law, why doesn’t he refuse to evict people from their homes, after their home is sold for nonpayment of property taxes? Wouldn’t that help those in need?
