    The sanctuary jurisdictions are listed below. These cities, counties, and states have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE — either by refusing to or prohibiting agencies from complying with ICE detainers, imposing unreasonable conditions on detainer acceptance, denying ICE access to interview incarcerated aliens, or otherwise impeding communication or information exchanges between their personnel and federal immigration officers.

    A detainer is the primary tool used by ICE to gain custody of criminal aliens for deportation. It is a notice to another law enforcement agency that ICE intends to assume custody of an alien and includes information on the alien’s previous criminal history, immigration violations, and potential threat to public safety or security.

    The Center’s last map update reflected listings in an ICE report published on March 20, 2017.

    THE ICE REPORT… link above….

    ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL OPERATIONS Weekly Declined Detainer Outcome Report  For Recorded Declined Detainers Jan. 28 – Feb. 3, 2017

    Summary

    Pursuant to section 9(b) of Executive Order 13768, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, and section H of the Secretary of Homeland Security’s subsequent implementation memo,

    Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is making available for public release the non-Federal jurisdictions that release aliens from their custody, notwithstanding that such aliens are subject to a detainer or similar request for

    custody issued by ICE to that jurisdiction.

    For instances of such release, the report also includes the associated individual’s citizenship, detainer issued and declined dates, and notable criminal activity.

    ICE compiled this report based on jurisdictions with detainers that were recorded as declined

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017, regardless of detainer issuance date

    It should be noted that law enforcement agencies (LEA) do not generally advise ICE of when a detainer is not honored, and therefore this report represents declined detainers that ICE personnel have become aware of during their enforcement activities.

    This report is comprised of four sections:

    • Section I:

    Highest Volume of Detainers Issued to Non-Cooperative Jurisdictions

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017

    • Section I

    I: Jurisdictions with Recorded Declined Detainers Broken Down by Individuals Released

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017

    • Section III:

    Table of Jurisdictions that have Enacted Policies which Limit Cooperation with ICE

    • Section IV: Report Scope and Data Fidelity

    I’M POSTING THIS COMMENT TO EXPRESS MY FULL AND TOTAL SUPPORT OF  PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’S BUDGET PROPOSAL, WHICH INCLUDES SIGNIFICANT CUTS TO FOREIGN AFFAIRS FUNDING, THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE EPA.

    President Trump said in a message accompanying his budget plan: “A budget that puts America first must make the safety of our people its number one priority because without safety, there can be no prosperity.”

    Certainly Trump must stop using LAW ABIDING American taxpayer’s money to support the  dependent Sanctuary States and Cities that refuse to uphold federal laws on violent criminal illegal aliens.

    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has defended swinging budget cuts to his own department proposed by President Donald Trump.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S  BUDGET PLAN, KNOWN AS A “SKINNY BUDGET”, WILL BE LIMITED TO THE $1,000,000,000,000.00 TRILLION  PORTION OF THE $4,000,000,000,000.00 TRILLION ANNUAL FEDERAL BUDGET THAT PAYS FOR US AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENTS.

    The United States provides far more assistance than any other country in the world, AND IN TERMS OF ARMS SALES, it controls at least half the global market.

    Terrorist safe havens described in this report include ungoverned, under-governed, or ill-governed physical areas where terrorists are able to organize, plan, raise funds, communicate, recruit, train, transit, and operate in relative security because of inadequate governance capacity, political will, or both.

    As defined by section 2656f(d) of Title 22 of the U.S. Code, the term “TERRORIST SANCTUARY” or “SANCTUARY” excludes the territory of a country the government of which is subject to a determination under section 2405(j)(1)(A) of the Appendix to Title 50; section 2371(a) of Title 22; or section 2780(d) of Title 22–

    The focus of this posting on my website is what President Trump knows, what some federal, state, elected representative, and appointed judges CHOOSE TO IGNORE and what American citizen should know.

    THESE AREAS ALLOWED THE GROUP’S OPERATIVES TO CONTINUE EXPLOITING THE POROUS BORDER REGIONS

    THE LACK OF GOVERNMENT CONTROL ACROSS LARGE PORTIONS OF ITS TERRITORY AND POROUS BORDERS MAKES PREVENTING THE FLOW VERY DIFFICULT.

    THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION MANAGED TO ESTABLISH NEW SAFE HAVENS FROM WHERE IT PLANNED AND LAUNCHED ATTACKS AGAINST GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, AMISOM BASES, AND SOFT TARGETS IN KENYA AND OTHER PARTS OF THE REGION.

    THE EXPANSE REMAINED DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. SURVEILLANCE IMPROVED BUT REMAINED PARTIAL AT BEST, AND TRADITIONAL SMUGGLING AND PIRACY GROUPS HAVE PROVIDED AN EFFECTIVE COVER FOR TERRORIST ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING THE MOVEMENT OF PERSONNEL, EQUIPMENT, AND FUNDS. KIDNAPPINGS FOR RANSOM REMAINED AN ONGOING THREAT.

    THERE ARE UNGOVERNED, UNDER-GOVERNED, AND ILL-GOVERNED AREAS  THAT TERRORIST GROUPS HAVE USED TO ORGANIZE, PLAN, RAISE FUNDS, COMMUNICATE, RECRUIT, TRAIN, AND OPERATE IN RELATIVE SECURITY

    THESE AREAS ALLOWED THE GROUP’S OPERATIVES TO CONTINUE EXPLOITING THE POROUS BORDER REGIONS BETWEEN KENYA AND SOMALIA AND LAUNCH DEADLY CROSS-BORDER ATTACKS.

    SOUTHEAST ASIA IS VULNERABLE TO EXPLOITATION BY ILLICIT TRAFFICKERS AND PROLIFERATORS GIVEN THE HIGH VOLUME OF GLOBAL TRADE TRANSITING THE REGION AS WELL AS THE EXISTENCE OF SMUGGLING AND PROLIFERATION NETWORKS. WEAK STRATEGIC TRADE CONTROLS, LEGAL AND REGULATORY FRAMEWORKS, INADEQUATE MARITIME LAW ENFORCEMENT AND SECURITY CAPABILITIES

    2015, THE UNITED STATES CONTINUED TO WORK WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PHILIPPINES TO MONITOR AND INVESTIGATE GROUPS ENGAGED IN OR SUPPORTING TERRORIST ACTIVITIES IN THE PHILIPPINES

    THE GOVERNMENT OF EGYPT VIEWS TERRORISM AS ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S GREATEST THREATS

    THE NORTHERN SINAI WAS CLOSED OFF TO TOURISTS, JOURNALISTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, AND NGOS IN 2015.

    ISIL-SP HAS CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCREASINGLY FREQUENT AND SOPHISTICATED TERRORIST ATTACKS AGAINST EGYPTIAN FORCES

    ISIL USED THE TERRITORY UNDER ITS CONTROL IN 2015 TO PRODUCE SULFUR MUSTARD AND IEDS FILLED WITH CHLORINE

    DUE TO SECURITY CONDITIONS IN IRAQ, THE EXPORT CONTROL AND RELATED BORDER SECURITY (EXBS) PROGRAM HAS HAD DIFFICULTY IMPLEMENTING OUTREACH ACTIVITIES.

    THE GOVERNMENT TOOK NO ACTION IN 2015 TO DISARM HIZBALLAH, TO ELIMINATE ITS SAFE HAVENS WITHIN LEBANESE TERRITORY, OR TO PREVENT THE FLOW OF HIZBALLAH MEMBERS TO SYRIA OR IRAQ. UNGOVERNED AREAS ALONG THE UN-DEMARCATED LEBANESE-SYRIAN BORDER ALSO SERVED AS SAFE HAVENS FOR NUSRAH FRONT, THE ISLAMIC STATE OF IRAQ AND THE LEVANT, AND OTHER SUNNI TERRORIST GROUPS IN 2015, WHICH OPERATE IN MOUNTAINOUS, MOSTLY UNINHABITED ZONES WHERE THE GOVERNMENT HAS LIMITED REACH.

    ITS POROUS BORDERS MAKE THE COUNTRY VULNERABLE FOR USE AS A TRANSIT AND TRANSSHIPMENT HUB FOR PROLIFERATION-SENSITIVE TRANSFERS, PARTICULARLY WITH THE CONFLICT IN SYRIA

    LIBYA’S POROUS BORDERS, FRAGMENTED SECURITY FORCES, AND VAST UNGOVERNED TERRITORY HAVE MADE IT A PERMISSIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR TERRORIST GROUPS such as Ansar al-Shari’a Benghazi, Ansar al-Shari’a Darnah, al-Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb, al-Murabitoun, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Due to the inability of the Libyan government to effectively administer its territory, terrorist organizations have found safe havens primarily in Sirte, Darnah, Benghazi, and Sabratha, although violent extremist groups operate with impunity throughout Libya

    THE GOVERNMENT FAILED TO ELIMINATE TERRORIST SAFE HAVENS IN LIBYA IN 2015, AND HAS BEEN UNABLE TO PREVENT FLOWS OF FOREIGN TERRORIST FIGHTERS IN AND OUT OF ITS TERRITORY. TERRORIST TRAINING CAMPS AND FACILITATION NETWORKS EXIST THROUGHOUT LIBYA; LOCAL TRIBES AND MINORITY GROUPS FREQUENTLY SERVE AS FACILITATORS

    THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT FOREIGN TERRORIST FIGHTERS ARE BEGINNING TO RETURN TO LIBYA OR CHOOSING TO STAY IN LIBYA TO FIGHT THERE, INCREASING CONCERNS THAT LIBYA HAS BECOME A BATTLEFIELD FOR VIOLENT EXTREMIST GROUPS SUCH AS ISIL.

    YEMEN. THROUGHOUT 2015, AL-QA’IDA IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA (AQAP) AND ISIL-YEMEN EXPLOITED THE POLITICAL AND SECURITY VACUUM TO STRENGTHEN THEIR FOOTHOLD AND EXPAND RECRUITING INSIDE THE COUNTRY.

    COLOMBIA, ILLEGAL ARMED GROUPS, PRIMARILY KNOWN AS “BANDAS CRIMINALES,” CONTINUED TO USE THE “POROUS BORDER”, REMOTE MOUNTAIN AREAS, AND JUNGLES TO MANEUVER, TRAIN, CULTIVATE AND TRANSPORT NARCOTICS, OPERATE ILLEGAL MINES, “TAX” THE LOCAL POPULACE, AND ENGAGE IN OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES.

    VENEZUELA’S “POROUS BORDER” WITH COLOMBIA HAS MADE THE COUNTRY ATTRACTIVE TO THE REVOLUTIONARY ARMED FORCES OF COLOMBIA AND THE NATIONAL LIBERATION ARMY, WHO USE IT TO TRANSIT IN AND OUT OF ITS TERRITORY. THERE WERE CREDIBLE REPORTS THAT VENEZUELA MAINTAINED A PERMISSIVE ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWED FOR SUPPORT OF ACTIVITIES THAT BENEFITED KNOWN TERRORIST GROUPS.

  • New UW Class? “Calling Bullshit”

    OK. it’s a proposed, New University of Washington Class? “Calling Bullshit”

    Indeed, The name “CALLING BULLSHIT” is provocative. (I got sucked in to reading it)

    From publication bias to fake news, bullshit is everywhere. And it’s important to be able to navigate it, separate delusion from reality, and call out bullshit when we see it. In a post-truth world, we need evidence and facts more than ever, and

    University of Washington Professors Bergstrom and West have decided to do something about it.

    ————————————————————————–

    Update: Jan 21, 2017 Why would President Trump  bother to “Tweet” on any peaceful demonstration? ( a rhetorical question).

    ————————————————————–

    I was researching this …… when I stumbled on your UW class info.

    Man critically wounded during UW protest; ‘person of interest’ in …

    komonews.com/news/local/faceoff-at-university-of-washington-over-alt-right-speaker

    15 hours ago – SEATTLE — A protest at the University of Washington over a controversial speaker turned ugly Friday night. Seattle … VIEW PHOTO GALLERY … A person later turned himself into UW police in connection with the shooting.

    —————————————————————————————-

    And I had already started researching this…..

    Donald Trump inauguration: Protests turned violent; 217 arrested
    In-Depth-Washington Times-Jan 20, 2017

    The headlines? the media BS? and The truth?

    ———————————————————

    THE TRUTH IS “ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES”

    PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE NEW SHERIFF IN WA DC.

    HE HAS DELEGATED HIS AUTHORITY TO AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT TO ARREST RIOTERS.

    (Obama’s Ferguson riotjustice is out)

    President Trump’s justice was enforced on Jan 20,2017

    According to interim D.C. police Chief Peter Newsham.

    The 217 people arrested during a clash Friday morning were all charged with RIOTING

    217 RIOTERS WERE ARRESTED AND TAKEN TO JAIL.

    RIOTERS threw bricks at law enforcement.

    THE RIOTERS INJURED AT LEAST SIX POLICE OFFICERS DURING THE SKIRMISHES, THREE WHEN THEY WERE STRUCK IN THE HEAD WITH PROJECTILES.

    Police said the “RIOTERS”came armed with hammers and crowbars and smashed the windows of several banks and chain restaurants, later dragging trash cans and newspaper boxes into the middle of the street and lighting refuse and even a limousine on fire.

    Many of the protesters, “RIOTERS”  engaged in violence exhibited black bloc-style tactics, donning masks to hide their identities and wearing all black clothing.

    —————————————————

    President Trump likes proclamations, he said so, when he signed his first one on Jan 20, 2017.

    Perhaps President Trump should do a proclamation” BANNING FULL FACE COVERS AND MASKS” for all protestors

    ———————————————

    The 217 people arrested during a clash Friday morning were all charged with RIOTING and were expected to appear in court Saturday, according to interim D.C. police Chief Peter Newsham.

    YEP, 217 RIOTERS ARE GOING TO COURT.

    Police and protesters clashed in the nation’s capital during Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremonies Friday — leading to more than 200 arrests after a faction of anti-establishment activists smashed storefront windows and threw bricks at law enforcement.

    University Course Proposal: “Calling Bullshit” – Improbable Research

    Jan 14, 2017 Indeed, The name “CALLING BULLSHIT” is provocative.(my comment continues below)

     

    But, for a University of Washington course about calling it like it is, perhaps it’s best to start with the title

    – University Course Proposal: “Calling Bullshit”. Professors Carl T. Bergstrom and Jevin West from University of Washington have developed a new … Naturally, if people learn how to detect subtle bullshit that might otherwise go …

    You have  posted a full syllabus on line, complete with studies and suggested readings, so we can all improve these skills.

    In your BS course you and Carl aim to teach students how to think critically about the data and models that constitute evidence in the social and natural sciences.

    —————————————————————————–

    BOY YOU SAID IT!

    From publication bias to fake news, bullshit is everywhere. And it’s important to be able to navigate it, separate delusion from reality, and call out bullshit when we see it. In a post-truth world, we need evidence and facts more than ever, and I decided to do something about it on Jan 16,2011.

    I have posted about 850 documented factual comments on my website. Behindmyback.org (where the US government does most of my business) .   I research and document legal  facts, Constitutional Evidence  on the BS provided by the false news, politico establishment, the public media. complete with thousands of links to documents, studies, and suggested readings.

    From your suggested reading….

    “Openness and transparency about the metric and its calculation are not antidotes to the underlying conflict of interest,”

    “Don’t trust, check the BS !”
