Where America isn’t America

Illegal Mexicans In Pickup, AZWhere would America not be America?

Why, where America is controlled by the Mexican drug cartels.

Are you kidding me? you ask.  No, no kidding from me, not about this topic.  From Breitbart.com:

AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu: Drug Cartels With AK-47s Control American Soil 30 Miles from Phoenix

by Pam Key

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” Pinal Co., AZ  Sheriff Paul Babeu said drug cartels armed with AK-47’s “control many areas on American soil” noting that they are only 30 miles from Phoenix.

Babeu detailed touring the border yesterday with Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson and said, “We flew him in our helicopter, showed him the drug smuggling routes, the actual caves—these cartel scouts live on top of mountains, 30 days at a time. And how on mountain top to mountain top, over a 50-mile swath of land, and this is only 30 miles from Phoenix.”

He continued, “This is literally an unsecured border. We have cartels that think they own the place. They control many areas on American soil and this how they freely move billions of dollars of drugs and hundreds of thousands of illegals into our country.”

One question:

Who’s running the United States?  Is it actual American citizens or is it Mexicans?  Mexico seems to control our southern border, and apparently controls our politicians in DC and some other national localities.

From this separate article by Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle:

FLORENCE, Arizona — “Nobody does,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Breitbart News when asked who has operational control of this region of the United States of America.

Babeu was on a helicopter tour of Mexican drug cartel scout locations in caves in the side of mountains throughout the desert about 70 miles inside the U.S. border. Essentially, that means U.S. sovereignty is gone for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of square miles throughout the American southwest.

This is the predicament into which Mr Obama has placed us and others of his ilk, as well as members of the Old Staid / Establishment GOP.  They have all decided, along with Leftists and Demorats who advocate for “sanctuary cities,” that your safety and the sovereignty of the United States takes a second place to the well-being and security of our nation.  They have decided that votes, cheaper labor and emotions are more important than national safety, unification and continuation of America as we know it.

We do not control “hundreds, perhaps thousands, of square miles throughout the American southwest.”

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu says that the US/Mexican border being “more secure than it’s ever been” is a complete and utter lie.

Am I the only one who finds that insane?  Forty years ago, thirty years ago, what president would even consider allowing this to occur on AMERICAN SOIL?

Just as with LGBT issues, America was pushed to transition in this fashion regarding Leftist issues — now involving illegal immigration and anchor babies:

  • Tolerance
  • Acceptance
  • Advocacy

if you are not an overt advocate of LGBT issues, you are a sexist.  If you do not advocate for illegal immigrants and anchor babies, you are a racist.  The phrase “anchor babies” is now being pushed by the American Media Maggots as racist, as witnessed by press interaction with Jeb Bush and Donald Trump.

Kabuki TheatreIn the meantime, incidents such as this continue.

More Kabuki Theater in an alternate dimension.

P.S.

Read this story of how Mexican drug cartels keep the Arizona border open for their own benefit.  To include:

How do the smugglers know where to go?  Wirth says cartel scouts keep law enforcement under surveillance around the clock.  They occupy mountaintops all over Arizona’s borderlands, and all the way up to Phoenix, 150 miles north.

Drug cartel scouts “occupy mountaintops” in Arizona with 24/7 surveillance.

Folks, we can stop this.

The only reason we don’t is because we — the government — choose not to.

Illegal Immigrant Superior Rights In USA

Does Mexico want a war?

If they keep on this path, they may well be on their way.

USBP HelicopterResultingly, you won’t see information like this portrayed on the nightly news or splashed across the front page of any newspaper.  it’s poor form, you see, for the American Media Maggots to say anything against itinerant Juan Valdez — who only wants to feed his suffering family in Mexico.

With one exception: Juan Valdez likely works for a major Mexican drug cartel.

Los Zetas Drug Cartel Linked to US Helicopter Downing

Border patrol helo hit by gunfire

by Bill Gertz

A shooting incident last month that forced a U.S. border patrol helicopter to make an emergency landing near Laredo, Texas, was the work of Mexican drug traffickers, and analysts say the attack highlights growing narcotics trafficking across porous U.S. borders.

According to U.S. officials familiar with an investigation of the June 5 incident, members of the Los Zetas drug cartel were crossing back into Mexico from the United States when they were spotted by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) helicopter along the Rio Grande River near Laredo.

The traffickers had finished delivering a shipment of drugs and were returning to Mexico when they were spotted by U.S. agents and opened fired with automatic weapons.

The helicopter, part of USCBP’s Office of Air and Marine, was struck by gunfire on its side and on the rotor blade. The pilot was forced to make an emergency landing.

Let me remind you, if I may, that this is something Hamas does to Israel.  Some people call that terrorism.

Who are the Los Zetas, you may ask?  They are the persons responsible for handiwork of this type in Mexico.

Los Zetas Handiwork

These are the people the Demorats and many Republicans are refusing to combat.  These are the people who plague our border states but few wish to read or hear of, because it is disturbing and makes Leftists uncomfortable.  Play the video.  You are about to become even more uncomfortable.

This is the kind of handiwork that Leftists wish to import with a greater rapidity into the United States because, after all, the Zetas will certainly vote Demorat.  But will Los Zetas be satisfied with picking fruit, mowing your yard or lugging drywall for your construction company as the Republicans apparently don’t mind?

Uh, no.  I don’t think so.

BZ

P.S.

Let’s take this time to thank the federal government and the BATF for ensuring that, via Fast and Furious, USBP Agent Brian Terry was killed and that a good number of firearms are currently being put to pleasant use by Mexican drug cartels.  Thanks so kindly, Mr Obama and your fellow Leftists.  You fully realize that, sometimes, sacrifices have to be made for the better overall political good.

 

Another reason I like Ted Cruz

Here, Senator Ted Cruz questions ICE Director Sarah Saldana.

Prepare to be sickened, because the numbers are staggering.

From RealClearPolitics.com:

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration policy on Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz questioned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Sarah Saldana about the number of “criminal illegal aliens” released by the federal government. Saldana tried to justify the release of thousands of convicted criminal illegal aliens when Cruz confronted her with the statistics.

“193 murderers with homicide convictions. 426 people with sexual assault convictions. 16,000 criminal illegal aliens with drunk driving convictions,” released in 2014 instead of being deported or undergoing criminal proceedings.

Director Saldana claims she read the figures for the wrong year, but Cruz shuts her down: “I want to know that your testimony here, on how many criminals ICE released in 2013, you were off by a factor of three. You said 30,000. The correct answer is 104,000. There were 68,000 criminal illegal aliens that ICE declined to begin deportation proceedings against…

You are omitting the 68,000 criminal illegal aliens that ICE did not begin deportation proceedings against at all. You’ve got to add both of those together, it is over 100,000.”

Let us not forget that it was an illegal immigrant who shot and killed two law enforcement officers in my area, Deputy Danny Oliver (who worked for my department) and Placer County Deputy Michael Davis.

Haven’t enough people been killed, raped, shot, stabbed and injured at the hands of illegal immigrants?

The problem is, no one in government has been killed, raped, shot, stabbed and injured at the hands of an illegal immigrant.  If they had, these laws would change in a remarkably short period of time, these Imperial Unaffected Elite.

SF Sheriff: more complicit in Kate Steinle’s murder

Pier 14 San FranciscoJust when you thought things couldn’t get more Leftist, they get more Leftist.  But it’s San Francisco after all.

From SFGate.com, a bay area news site:

Pier 14 killing: S.F. sheriff asked feds to send immigrant here

by Jaxon Van Derbeken

San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi has deflected blame in the release of a Mexican national now facing murder charges in the Pier 14 slaying by demanding to know why federal authorities returned him to San Francisco to face a 20-year-old marijuana charge in the first place.

An excellent question.  Why?  Finally, a journalist with an inquisitive mind.

The answer, it turns out, is that the Sheriff’s Department asked federal officials to do so.

Mirkarimi’s agency requested custody of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez as he was completing a 46-month stint in federal prison in March in San Bernardino County, according to a Sheriff’s Department letter obtained by The Chronicle. Lopez-Sanchez had been deported five times to Mexico, and had been imprisoned for illegally re-entering the U.S.

Curiouser and curiouser.

The federal Bureau of Prisons alerted the Sheriff’s Department in March that Lopez-Sanchez was going to be released. Mirkarimi’s agency, realizing that Lopez-Sanchez was wanted on a $5,000 bench warrant related to a 1995 marijuana possession for sale case, asked prison officials March 23 to hold onto him and to notify San Francisco authorities “when the subject is ready for our pick-up.”

“Also, please notify us if the hold cannot be placed or the named subject is released to another jurisdiction prior to our receipt,” said the letter, signed by Vic Gaerlan of the sheriff’s warrant bureau.

Lopez-Sanchez arrived in San Francisco on March 26, and the marijuana case against him was discharged the following day. He was returned to jail, however.

For the next three weeks, sources with knowledge of the matter told The Chronicle, sheriff’s deputies sought clarification from the department’s legal division on whether to hold onto Lopez-Sanchez so Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials could pick him up for possible deportation. ICE had requested that the city detain Lopez-Sanchez.

About now, you’re asking yourself a question, aren’t you?

Let’s let Breitbart.com pick up the story.

Lopez-Sanchez was scheduled for release from federal prison in southern California in March. Given that information, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) began processing a reinstatement of removal order for the five-time deportee, Breitbart News previously reported.

The San Francisco Sheriff’s Department was also alerted to Lopez-Sanchez’s impending release from federal Bureau of Prisons custody in March, according to a Sheriff’s department letter obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle. Noting Lopez-Sanchez had a 20-year-old bench warrant on possession-for-sale of marijuana, on March 23 the Sheriff’s department requested notification when Lopez-Sanchez was “ready for our pickup.”

“Ready for pickup” on a $5,000 dope charge about which the SF District Attorney couldn’t care less.

Lopez-Sanchez was transferred from the federal Bureau of Prisons in Victorville, California to San Francisco Sheriffs’ department custody on March 26.

A court dismissed Lopez-Sanchez’s charges the day after he arrived in San Francisco, March 27.

It was not until after Lopez-Sanchez was delivered to San Francisco County custody that ICE was notified of the transfer. ICE then issued a detention request for Lopez-Sanchez. That request simply asked for notification prior to Lopez-Sanchez’s release, not that he be detained for an extended period of time.

San Francisco sanctuary city and Sheriff’s department policies specifically deny all such detainer requests unless backed by a court order or warrant.

In other words, as a “sanctuary city,” San Francisco chooses not to comply with the law.

So why request his return?

Please allow me to state what, in my opinion, may be the answer to: why did they request Sanchez?

I believe it’s because they are a “sanctuary city” and that, by acquiring physical custody of Sanchez, they could assure his release prior to being detained by the feds for deportation back to Mexico.

In other words: they were protecting him.

It’s what they do.

Sanctuary Cities Cartoon

San Francisco helped kill Kate Steinle

Kate SteinleSan Francisco quite proudly declared itself a sanctuary city 26 years ago.  It is proud of that fact.  A “sanctuary city” means that Illegals of all shapes and sizes will, according to the mindset of Leftists, not be “ratted out” to various authorities for deportation just because they are “undocumented” — LeftSpeak for illegal.

San Francisco is proud of that label.

San Francisco is proud, even after a 32-year-old Pleasanton woman, Kate Steinle, was shot and killed in front of her father at Pier 14 on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, on Wednesday, July 1st, at about 6:30 PM.

Her last words were: “Dad, help me, help me.”

Her father was powerless, considering Kate Steinle had been shot directly in the chest three times by an illegal immigrant who purposely sought out San Francisco because he knew it was a sanctuary city.

Here’s where the pride of San Francisco comes in:

Had San Francisco authorities not refused a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer request, Lopez-Sanchez may not have been in the United States and Steinle might still be alive.

Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) addresses the core issue: laws were not enforced.

Laws were not enforced.  We’ll get back to that.

Sheriff Ross MirkarimiThe San Francisco Sheriff’s Department is in charge of illegal immigrant notifications, not the SFPD.  The SF Sheriff himself, Ross Mirkarimi, is doubling down on his having done the proper thing:

S.F. Sheriff Defends Releasing Killer, Calls Trump ‘Opportunist’

by Michelle Moons

San Francisco’s Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is defending the intentional April release of five-times-deported Mexican national Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who has since confessed to the Wednesday shooting death of a young woman at Pier 14.

Sheriff Mirkarimi appeared agitated as he spoke to San Francisco-based KRON 4 News, casting blame on U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for not filing a formal court application to detain Lopez-Sanchez. In a separate CNN interview, Mirkarimi defended his refusal of ICE detainers. He called ICE policy the “imperfect deportation and transferring of people.”

It is San Francisco Sheriff’s department policy to deny all ICE detainer requests. He indicated that he only honors court orders.

Mirkarimi also told CNN’s Jake Tapper that sanctuary city policies “make us safer.”

Safer, yes, of course.  Why didn’t I think of that?

Further, the San Francisco mayor, Edwin Lee, said in part:

As I said in 2013, we must protect both civil liberties and uphold public safety. Which is why, at the time, I promised to veto any legislation that completely eliminated the Sheriff’s ability to make a case-by-case determination about honoring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers. Our sanctuary policies should not create a safe harbor for convicted, violent felons.

Translated: Mayor Lee just threw Mirkarimi under the bus.  But of course Lee takes the golden opportunity to turn a death into a political wiffle ball.  It’s the fault of the Republicans:

Even after repeated attempts by President Obama and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to reform our immigration laws, Republicans in Congress have blocked those efforts, unfortunately, leaving cities and local municipalities to act upon immigration issues that affect its residents. I will continue to work with the Obama Administration on Comprehensive Immigration Reform to ensure cities aren’t forced to make and enforce immigration law.

That said, what actually happened with Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez?  He shouldn’t have even been in the United States.  With seven felony convictions — not arrests, but convictions — Sanchez had been deported to Mexico five times.  And came back each time.

Even CNN wrote about the circumstances surrounding the multiple releases of the murder suspect:

In March, Lopez-Sanchez was turned over to San Francisco authorities and ultimately released after completing a federal prison sentence.

U.S. Immigrations and Custom Enforcement said San Francisco wanted Lopez-Sanchez on a drug warrant, so the agency handed him over with a request to let it know if he was to be released.

Despite that request, San Francisco authorities let him go in April after the drug charges were dropped.

Freya Horne, chief legal counsel to the San Francisco County Sheriff, said city officials believe such requests violate Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Question, Freya: if a federal detainer violated federal law, then how has the federal government been getting away with its various USC sections over the numerous years regarding deportations of illegals?  When I worked Booking in the Sacramento County Main Jail as a deputy in the 80s, I would pick up the phone and call the USBP when we suspected a LE agency had arrested an illegal.  The USBP did the rest.  Simple.

Sanchez confessed to the murder but his Public Defender subsequently insisted he was not guilty.

Breitbart.com adds:

It is San Francisco Sheriff’s department policy to deny all ICE detainer requests. He indicated that he only honors court orders.

ICE had begun processing the reinstatement of Lopez-Sanchez’s removal order before the prisoner was transferred on March 26 from a Bureau of Prisons facility in Victorville to San Francisco Sheriff’s custody pursuant to an old drug warrant.

ICE was informed of the transfer afterwards and alternatively issued a detainer request for the prisoner.

A San Francisco court dismissed Lopez-Sanchez’s drug charge on March 27.

On April 15, 2015, authorities dismissing the ICE request for detention released the seven-time convicted felon Lopez-Sanchez onto the streets.

Finally, I submit to Leftist sheriff Ross Mirkarimi (he is, you should know, a co-founder of the Green Party of California) that you, sir, are damned near equally responsible for the death of Kate Steinle.  You go explain your philosophy and mindset to the parents, siblings, friends and relatives of Kate Steinle.  Personally.


ABC US News | World News

But you won’t.  Because you are a coward and your belief system is “Leftist Mindset Uber Alles.”  It’s funny, however, how you call Trump an “opportunist” when he dared to speak the truth about Mexico.  Mexico is out for Mexico — but of course on your planet of purple skies you hadn’t remotely thought of that.  Mexico does not give us our best and brightest.  Its children have brought disease to this nation.  It sends us more MS13 gangbangers.  Its illegals commit crimes in this nation and commit murders.  Yet your purple skies, Mirkarimi, “Trump all.”

You are absolutely disgusting in your willingness to forsake your law enforcement oath for murdering Leftist values.  You sicken me.  You are unfit to wear your badge.  I say this, sir, as a recently retired (two weeks ago) Sergeant with a California department much larger than yours, after 41 years of service: you sicken me.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me finally write: wake up.  Some of your police and sheriff departments are killing you in the fashion of the SFSO.  They are killing you either by fear, cowardice, ignorance or by dint of wishing to be politically correct.  But they are doing it nevertheless.

They are killing you because they are not obeying the law.  Their not obeying the law is because they have chosen to do so for expedience — AND — because the federal government does not obey its own laws.  More on that in a subsequent post.

I submit: the American taxpayers are not too terribly far away from picking and choosing which laws they will or will not obey.

Because the federal government and some agencies in law enforcement have already led the way on the issue.

And a terrible lead it is.

P.S.

Two additional points:

1. The handgun used by Sanchez to murder Kate Steinle was stolen in a burglary from a local federal agent.  Sanchez said he “found” the handgun nearby wrapped in a T-shirt.  Of course he did.  Read this to see the lengthy criminal history of Sanchez as per a federal database.

2. Here is the City of San Francisco’s sanctuary ordinance from its own website.  The complete text of the ordinance is hereMayor Gavin Newsom’s Executive Order 07-01: Sanctuary City Policy (PDF) is delineated.

UPDATE:

Gavin Newsom has had the link to his Executive Order 07-01 Sanctuary City Policy REMOVED.  The link, when clicked, now indicates: For Your Information – Page Not Found

Isn’t that just terribly convenient, as Stick points out, since it would appear that Newsom will likely be running for governor?
