Cecilia Munoz, former and perhaps current official of La Raza and also the White House director of Intergovernmental Affairs compared the federal crime of being in the country illegally to jaywalking. With this kind of idiot running around the White House there is no wonder America is struggling to recover from the current recession.
"If you were running the police department of any urban area in this country, you would spend more resources going after serious criminals than after jaywalkers. DHS (the Department of Homeland Security) is doing the immigration equivalent of the same thing," Munoz told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) conference on Monday.
What Munoz overlooks is that if you round up all of the illegal aliens you will have captured all of those who are guilty of the most serious crimes as well as all of those who have entered or remain in this country illegally. She and DHS apparently believe that all of the most serious criminals are going to sew a scarlet letter “C” on their clothing so they can easily be sorted out from the population that shelters them and on which they prey. It is the sorting process that is the waste of government resources. If we simply sweep them all up and repatriate them with the admonition that if they return without the proper documentation, they will do hard time for 2-5 years for the first offense and longer sentences for repeat offenses. They will be considered felons and treated accordingly.
The way to make the most of limited police and DHS resources is to focus on the communities where illegals are most likely to be found and permit states and local governments to provide all citizens with the means to prove their bona fides quickly and painlessly. The police departments in New York City and other cities have an enforcement model that has produced excellent results. Focus on all of the crimes in a neighborhood no matter how trivial and the overall crime rate will go down. This is the model that should be used on illegal aliens -- enforce the law against them even if as Munoz describes them, “they are merely jaywalkers” and the whole problem will be solved.
Munoz was referring to the administration's new policy of "prosecutorial discretion," outlined in a June memo from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, which falls under DHS. Under the new policy, immigration officials will prioritize deportation orders, acting only on those involving people convicted of serious crimes or those who pose a national security or public safety threat.
This is a serious error on the part of the Administration. Instead of wasting their time on prioritization, they should simply deport, without recourse or further appeal, all of those who are already under a removal order. Let them file any appeal from their homeland.
The memo also directs ICE agents to consider how long an individual has been in the U.S., whether that person has a spouse or children who are U.S. citizens, and whether that person has a serious criminal record. Crime victims, witnesses to crimes, or people who are charged with minor traffic violations, would avoid deportation under the ICE guidance. This selective enforcement of the law is a travesty and an abomination that all loyal citizens should object to strenuously with their Congressional representatives. Some would consider this usurpation of the role of Congress and abuse of prosecutorial discretion as ground for impeachment. Prosecutorial discretion was never intended to apply to an entire class of individuals. Rather it was designed to provide a modicum of flexibility in a small number of cases of special merit.
Munoz said the administration is acting within its authority - "but we also all understand that even as we use our administrative authority, make the right enforcement judgments, it is not the permanent solution for anybody, it doesn't solve our immigration problems. In order to do that, we need the Congress of the United States."
Why? Having already usurped the role of Congress by using executive authority to overturn votes already taken, why stop now. Why not continue to govern by decree rather than by law. Throw open the borders, fire the border patrol and the ICE agents and let the police deal with the common criminals among the illegals.
Munoz also indicated that the administration's new "discretion" policy is part of a "progression" of "work that's been going on for several years." To most Americans this will sound more like a retrogression of work. If we are going to indulge in that type of activity, the next Administration should go back to the Eisenhower era and order a new sweeping “Operation Wetback”.
"We have 10 million, 11 million undocumented people in this country and it's abundantly clear to anybody who's paying attention that we're not going to deport that entire population," said Munoz.
She apparently is the one who is not paying attention. That population is a huge problem for those who love America and who are untainted by the La Raza-style ethnocentrism and racism. She has taken a page out of Jeremiah Wright’s bible. She might just as well have said, “’g** d*mn America’ we are going to convert it into Mexico Norte and there is nothing you can do about it.” Well, she is exhibiting the perverse characteristic Warren Buffet referred to when he said, "There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult."
It would be extremely easy to remove all 12-20 million illegals if we had someone competent in charge of DHS and Intergovernmental Affairs. Put the job of repatriation up for bids by private business with the authority to confiscate any and all property of the illegals to pay their way home and provide for a reasonable profit margin. Further, allow the bid winner to charge employers of illegals for any unrecovered costs. This approach would rid the U.S. of all of the illegals who are not essential to our economy and who are not holding jobs citizens are willing to fill if offered a living wage at the American standard. Employers would have to provide irrefutable proof that they have made a good faith effort to hire citizens before they can even consider retaining or hiring illegals.
Munoz said, "It's not humanly possible. It's ridiculously expensive...and so what DHS is doing for the first time is trying to have a strategy around the law-enforcement work that it does, and so while it's enforcing the law vigorously, as [Congressman Luis Gutierrez] points out, it's also making strategic judgments about who is a priority for enforcement and who isn't."
What she really meant is "making political judgments about who is a priority for enforcement and who is not." Sorry Munoz, no cigar! That statement reveals your true lack of intellect. This, moreover, is the height of arrogance, stupidity and complicity. It has already been demonstrated that millions of people can be repatriated in less than a year. In 1945-6 eight million ethnic Germans were repatriated back to Germany’s heartland from the Eastern Territories using a transportation system heavily damaged by the war. By putting the job in the hands of a private company with the appropriate authority, there should be no expense to the government. If the illegals paid their way here, they can certainly pay their way home, after a six month sentence working on border infrastructure and after they have been photographed, fingerprinted and DNA’d. That information could be shared with all of the police departments across the country and would surely result in the solution of many crimes and the identification of the hardened criminals among the illegals.
Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.
