    THE JOINT RESOLUTION  OF MARCH 3, 1845

    In 1843, an honorable judge knew, such work was very much needed, and indeed  there would be an occasion to investigate the laws of the United States.

    —————————————————————————

    Letter from the Hon. Judge Sprague,

    District Judge of Massachusetts.

    Boston, December 4, 1843.

    My DEAR SIR: I have examined your plan for an edition of the Statutes of the United States at large, and it meets my cordial approbation.”, SUCH A WORK IS VERY MUCH NEEDED, AND MUST BE OF GREAT UTILITY TO ALL WHO MAY HAVE OCCASION TO INVESTIGATE THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES.

     —————————————————————————————–

    THE JOINT RESOLUTION  OF MARCH 3, 1845

    The work will thus become, for all purposes, the PERMANENT NATIONAL EDITION OF THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES; and all future statutes treaties may be printed in the same form, and become consecutive volumes of the NATIONAL CODE……

     By a contract with the government of the United States, the plates from which the work is printed belong to the government, to the extent set forth in THE JOINT RESOLUTION  OF

    MARCH 3, 1845; THUS SECURING TO THE UNITED STATES THE USE OF THE PLATES, TO THE END OF TIME; so that all future editions of the statutes and treaties may be printed in the same manner.

     ———————————————————————————

    THE EDITION OF THE STATUTES OF THE UNITED STATES NOW PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC COMPREHENDS

    ALL THE PUBLIC ACTS PASSED SINCE THE ORGANIZATION OF THE GOVERNMENT,

    PRECEDED BY (“lead the way; occurred before”) THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, THE ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION, AND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES;

    IN ONE VOLUME, THE PRIVATE ACTS;

    AND IN ONE VOLUME,

    THE TREATIES OF THE UNITED STATES WITH FOREIGN NATIONS AND WITH THE INDIAN TRIBES, WHICH COMPOSE THE WHOLE DIPLOMATIC COLLECTION

    The Copious notes of the Decisions of the courts of the United States, which construe,

    comment upon, or apply to the law, treaty, or text, and upon the subjects of the laws,

    which have come under the consideration of the courts, are placed under the acts.

    ———————————————-

    On the margin, or at the foot of the page containing each law, there is a reference

    to the acts passed before or after the law on the same matter.

    The repeal of every law, and its having become obsolete, are also noted. In Notes, the whole legislation on many of the subjects of the laws is fully referred to.

     —————————————————

    The laws are divided so as to comprehend the acts of every session of Congress as a separate statute, designated as the First, Second, or Third statute; with a running title at the head of each page expressing the session of Congress and the date of each chapter or resolve, contained in the page; and each law forms a separate chapter.

    —————————————————

    It will be seen that the acts are inserted in chronological order, but the numbers of the chapters are not consecutive. It was the purpose of the editor to adopt a different arrangement of the chapters,

    BUT THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES HAS DECIDED THAT THE “JOINT RESOLUTION” IMPOSES THE MANNER OF CHAPTERING WHICH HAS BEEN PURSUED.

    THE NUMBERS OF THE CHAPTERS OF THE PRIVATE ACTS, ARE THOSE OF THE OMITTED CHAPTERS IN THE VOLUMES OF THE PUBLIC LAWS.

     —————————————-

    Every volume contains a separate alphabetical index of the matters in the volume, in

    which particular reference is given to the subject of every act; and at the end  of

    the last volume of the Public Laws there is an Index of all the matters in the volumes of the Public Laws.

    ————————————————

    THE VOLUME OF PRIVATE LAWS CONTAINS AN INDEX TO THEIR CONTENTS;

    JAN 29, 2016  CNBC ASKS WHY ABSENT TRUMP WON THE DEBATE?

    and, trash talking the establishment GOP contenders..

    An absent Trump won this debate: Why – CNBC.com

    www.cnbc.com/2016/01/29/an-absent-trump-won-this-debate-why.html

    JAN 29, 2016 – By missing the GOP debate, Donald Trump was spared all but glancing blows from those battling to catch up.

    DES MOINES, Iowa — Donald Trump won. The Republican debate lost — and so did his rivals.

    The Republican candidate skipped the final televised faceoff before Iowans vote in caucuses on Monday. That spared him all but glancing, humorous blows from those battling to catch up.

    “Let me say, I’m a maniac and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly,” Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas began. “And Ben, you’re a terrible surgeon. Now that we’ve gotten the Donald Trump portion out of the way …”

    Later, Cruz jokingly threatened to leave the stage if he received any more challenging questions. He drew a few chuckles — but also drew attention to what moderator Megyn Kelly called “The elephant not on the stage.”

    The altered dynamic left more room than usual for other candidates. Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida both received heightened scrutiny of their stances

    Similar scrutiny of Trump, whose reversals have appeared more stark, would have amplified attacks he is suffering in TV attack ads. With his absence, he avoided it.

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who once was expected to become the top Republican candidate, displayed more assertiveness and command in the absence of the bombastic real estate magnate whose success so far has dumbfounded the son and brother of former presidents. Yet he has fallen so far behind that his ability to take advantage is questionable.

    The same is true of libertarian Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, the iconoclastic legacy candidate who had hoped to inherit the base of his father, Ron Paul,

    Govs. John Kasich of Ohio and Chris Christie of New Jersey also enjoyed moments of command. But their messages underscored their hope merely to survive caucuses here and score a breakthrough in New Hampshire eight days after the Iowa caucuses.

    Yet they never got a chance to lay a glove on the runaway leader in New Hampshire, and in the South Carolina primary after that, and in national polls. That’s Trump, who managed another feat of media jujitsu after having dominated headlines before the debate with drama about whether he’d show up.

    01/28/16 02:56 LIBERAL MEDIA’S FAVORITE SUBJECT TRASH TALKING DONALD J. TRUMP

    BEFORE TRUMP’S  JAN 28, 2016 RALLY FOR VETERAN’S

    Ever since Donald Trump launched his campaign for president last summer, he has linked himself closely to the cause of veterans he believes have been mistreated by the federal government. Most recently, he has pledged to headline a high-profile fundraiser in Des Moines on behalf of the Wounded Warrior Project instead of attending a potentially crucial Republican debate on Thursday prior to the Iowa caucuses. Trump has scheduled his fundraiser to air opposite the Fox News-hosted debate.

    Trump has been widely criticized by veteran’s groups FOR NOT PROVIDING SPECIFICS about what he would do to address the concerns and challenges of the veteran community

     “We’re going to take care of those wounded warriors and we’re going to take care of our vets better than anybody,” he said on the USS Wisconsin last October, 2015. “[My] plan will ensure our veterans get the care they need, wherever and whenever they need it.”

    the only specific policy shift he outlined was that he would support allowing veterans to seek medical care covered by Medicare from non-VA affiliated hospitals in a  competitive marketplace

    ON OCT 31, 2015 TRUMP’S PLAN TO REFORM THE VA… HE WOULD FIRE “THE CORRUPT AND INCOMPETENT VA EXECUTIVES WHO LET OUR VETERANS DOWN.”

    REMEMBER ON OCTOBER 27, 2015, TRUMP SAID,  “AS PRESIDENT, I CAN GUARANTEE IT”.

  • I Got A Phone Call From WA DC

    Yep, May 19, 2017, Rep Kilmer’s Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    I received the call on my time,  12:50 PM West Coast time.

    We had about a 20 minute conversation.

    The rest of the story  is the timing  and content of the ridiculously absurd  email Rep Kilmer Friday, sent to me May 19, 2017 10:52 AM.

    ————————————————————

    THIS IS THE STORY

    I have been emailing  a bunch of the postings on this website to Rep Kilmer on his “contact me”.  Checking the box I want a response.

    It took some goading, doing something continuously, provoking and  annoying, to stimulate action, reaction but I finally got  a  response from Kilmer’s office in WA DC.

    Martha wants to know

    What  I want from WA STATE Representative Derek Kilmer?

    Really? What do I want? This is my 920th posting on behindmyback.org. established  Jan 29, 2013

    Simply put, I want what Abraham Lincoln   wanted on Nov 19, 1863 “Gettysburg Address” that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

    ———————————————————-

    What do I want?

    As a concerned American Grandmother, with three children, (10) grandchildren and (9) great grand children…

    I want exactly the same as We the hard working  American citizens want, the WA DC. establishment  of elected Representatives, both Republican’s  and Democrat’s to work for the American people not the party.

    What “we the American people want” is for all elected MEMBERS OF CONGRESS et al, like resistance, bad mouthing, obstructing, Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Cantwell, Murray, and Kilmer to follow the lead of President Trump and put America and the American people first.

    ——————————————————————————-

    To the WA DC Politico establishment congress et al,  I would ask…

    “When honor and the law no longer stood  on the same side of the line, what did you stand for?

    You, members of congress et al, had a choice

    “You always have a choice. don’t ever imagine you don’t. Whatever you do, it’s a decision and you have to accept responsibility for it. That’s when honor becomes more than empty words.”

    Next time you’re faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, vote for the right thing. it will hurt all American’s less in the long run.”

    —————————————————–

    You, the establishment politicians,  lost the election on Nov 8, 2016.

    YOU WERE OVERWHELMINGLY  REJECTED BY AMERICAN VOTERS

    GET OVER IT.

    TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE WAS NOT A  UNITED NATIONS GLOBALIZATION POLITICIAN AND HE LOVES AMERICA

    “WHEN HONOR AND THE LAW NO LONGER STOOD  ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE LINE, WHAT DID TRUMP STAND FOR?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WON BECAUSE HE HAD A PLAN FOR AMERICA. HE  SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FIRST 100 DAY PLAN FOR AMERICA.

    AMERICAN VOTERS HAD A CHOICE

    IT WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    WITHOUT AMERICA THERE WOULD BE NO FREE WORLD

    WITHOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP THERE WOULD BE NO AMERICA

    AMERICA HAS DULY ELECTED  INTELLIGENT, HONORABLE, HONEST,  STRONG, LAW ENFORCING, HARD WORKING CONSTITUTIONALLY MOTIVATED,  TRULY PATRIOTIC, GLOBALLY POWERFUL  AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

    WHAT DO I WANT FROM WA DC?

    READ THE PLANS FOR AMERICA THAT MADE DONALD J. TRUMP PRESIDENT.

    Members of congress et al, The Next time you are  faced with a choice, like fixing the Obamacare disaster, protecting America’s borders, creating prosperity, like putting justice on the right side of the law, vote for the right thing for the American People.

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ———————————————————————————

    Kilmer’s Martha and I talked for about 20 minutes, partly about lies and atrocities committed in America.

    The Benghazi lies, that I knew about two weeks after it happened and told Kilmer about in 2012.  The media cover up of the rape of a five year old developmentally disabled girl in Twin Falls Idaho, (got no response from Kilmer, Cantwell or Murray)  Female genital mutilation,  by a doctor Detroit U.S.A.  practicing medicine in Henry Ford Hospital.

    Martha said she would check out my website.

    And,  when Martha asked me What I wanted  Rep Kilmer to do about Obamacare, I said, I want Rep Kilmer to stand up in the U.S. House of Representative, cross the isle, and support a bipartisan fix in the best interest of the American people..

    I asked Martha to let me know when Rep Kilmer will be on C-SPAN doing it.

    The bottom line

    Members of congress et al,  always had a choice. Whatever you did, whatever you do,  Schumer, Maxine Waters, Cummins, Pelosi, Feinstein, Pocahontas, Kilmer, Murray, Cantwell,  We the American voters  know who you are, we know what you did,   it was  your decision, you own it and you are responsible for it.

    ————————————————————————

    THE REST OF THE STORY

    Yep, May 19, 2017 Martha called me from WA DC her time,  9:50 AM

    My time in Port Angeles WA,  12:50 PM

    Martha and I  had a 20 minute conversation 42 MINUTES  later WA DC time

    Kilmer appreciates me taking my time to share my thoughts with him.

    Dear Ms. Hewett,

    Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about President Donald Trump and the policies his administration is pursuing. I share your concern, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    When I think about the next four years, I think about the future I want for my two little girls. I want my daughters – and all kids – to be able to get a top-notch education where their class sizes are small and their teachers are treated like professionals. As they grow older, I want my kids to be able to go to college without taking on mounds of debt. When they’re old enough, I want each of them to be able to get a good job that pays a good wage and has decent benefits – where they’re respected as working people. I want that for all Americans. I want my daughters to grow up in a world where discrimination is a thing of the past – where regardless of your race, religion, gender, orientation, ethnicity, ability or disability, you are a valued member of our community and our country. I want that future for them. I want them to grow up in a world where we protect the planet because we know our kids are only as safe as the water they drink, the air they breathe, and the earth we pass on to them.

    Frankly, those are the issues, among many others, that will be at stake in the years ahead.

    Unfortunately, the new Administration appears to have the wrong priorities. President Trump has already pursued policies that target immigrants, divide refugees by religion, and deny healthcare to millions of Americans. He has sought to undermine ongoing investigations into Russia’s engagement with our election and has called into question the rule of law. He has levied attacks on the judiciary and created enormous concerns about his own conflicts of interest. He has questioned the vital need to protect our environment for future generations.

    Please know that I will continue to oppose these efforts. America is the sum of its diverse parts, and I will vehemently oppose any attempts to undermine protection of our values.

    I will also do all I can to ensure that Congress exercises its oversight authority and advocates for the rule of law. The Constitution calls for protection of civil rights and civil liberties. It calls for the protection of free speech, freedom of religion, and a free press. It created an independent judiciary, empowered to review the actions of the executive branch to ensure they are legal and Constitutional. I respect that, and I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that our president respects those principles as well.

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “Public sentiment is everything.” If we are going to advance thoughtful, positive policies and if we are going to stop wrong-headed, divisive ones, we need citizens like you to be engaged. Thank you for that.

    Hearing the views of folks in our region is important to my work. I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your representative.
    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

    BECAUSE OF THE FAILED POLICIES  LEFT BY OBAMA, DURING  PRESIDENT TRUMP’S  FIRST 100 DAYS IN OFFICE, ON AVERAGE, 13,800 PEOPLE IN AMERICA DIED FROM LETHAL DRUG OVERDOSES.

     JAN 1, 2016 THE UNITED STATES IS EXPERIENCING AN EPIDEMIC OF DRUG OVERDOSE (POISONING) DEATHS. SINCE 2000, THE RATE OF DEATHS FROM DRUG OVERDOSES HAS INCREASED 137%, INCLUDING A 200% INCREASE IN THE RATE OF OVERDOSE DEATHS INVOLVING OPIOIDS (OPIOID PAIN RELIEVERS AND HEROIN).

     INDEED, PRESIDENT TRUMP  HAS REDUCED THE FLOW OF  ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS  BY 61% AND THE TONS OF KILLER DRUGS THEY BROUGHT WITH THEM INTO OUR HOMELAND

    Even the mainstream (LIBERAL) media couldn’t argue with Trump’s claims of a dramatic decrease in illegal immigration since becoming president, as Politifact fact-checked his statements and found that historical data from the Border Patrol backs up his claims.

    2014, some 69,000 of the 1.6 million state plus federal prisoners were noncitizens, per a September 2015 report by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics,

    OCT 22, 2016 –  A DISPROPORTIONATE AMOUNT OF ILLEGALS ARE IN STATE PRISONS.

    After we circled back to Smith’s office with the figures we’d found, Smith’s deputy chief of staff, Chris Philp, said by email that Smith had meant to tell the delegates

    THAT “ONE-THIRD OF FEDERAL SENTENCES GO TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS,

    NOT THAT ONE-THIRD OF FEDERAL PRISONERS ARE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.”

    NINE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND CRIME. continued….

    ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND CRIME BECAME A HOT TOPIC THIS ELECTION CYCLE AS SOON AS DONALD TRUMP BURST INTO THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY WITH HIS CALL TO BUILD A WALL TO KEEP CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS OUT OF THE COUNTRY.

    Such policy discussions have fallen by the wayside as the election cycle morphed into a mudslinging fight of personal insults and accusations of sexual assaults, but the link between illegal immigration and crime is still worth discussing, ESPECIALLY SINCE TRUMP’S INITIAL HIGHLIGHTING OF THE ISSUE FUELED HIS RISE.

    HERE ARE NINE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND CRIME.

    1. Federal, state and local governments keep data involving illegal immigration and crime out of the public purview. Fox News reported in 2015 that a source from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said “that comprehensive statistics on illegal immigrant crime are not available from the federal government, and suggested contacting county, state and federal jail and prison systems individually to compose a tally, a process that would encompass thousands of local departments.”

    Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams also told Fox News that some states do readily track illegal immigration and crime, but they withhold the specific numbers from the public out of fear of backlash from the federal government or for political purposes.

    However, there is still some data that can be pieced together to examine illegal immigration and crime, and evidence suggests that there is a correlation between the two.

    1. Available evidence suggests that illegals are more likely to commit crimes than the rest of the population. Fox News sorted through myriad “local, state and federal statistics” and found that “illegal immigrants are three times as likely to be convicted of murder as members of the general population and account for far more crimes than their 3.5-percent share of the U.S. population would suggest.”

    The percentage of illegals committing the number of crimes are as follows, according to Fox News:

    • 13.6 percent of those sentenced for all committed crimes in the country
    • 12 percent of murder sentences
    • 16 percent of trafficking sentences
    1. Almost 50 percent of federal crimes were committed near the Mexico border. A report from the Department of Justice in 2014 found the following, via Judicial Watch:

    Of the 61,529 criminal cases initiated by federal prosecutors last fiscal year, more than 40%—or 24,746—were filed in court districts neighboring the Mexican border. This includes Arizona, New Mexico, Southern California, Western Texas and Southern Texas. The two Texas districts each had more than double the convictions of all four federal court districts in the state of New York combined, according to the DOJ report. The Western Texas District had the nation’s heaviest crime flow, with 6,341 cases filed by the feds. In Southern Texas 6,130 cases were filed, 4,848 in Southern California, 3,889 in New Mexico and 3,538 in Arizona.

    Not surprisingly, most of the offenses were immigration related. In fact, 38.6% of all federal cases (23,744) filed last year involved immigration, the DOJ report confirms. Nearly 22% (13,383) were drug related, 19.7% (12,123) were violent crimes and 10.2% (6,300) involved white-collar offenses that include a full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals. This is hardly earth-shattering news in fact, the nation’s southern border region has for years been known for its high crime rate compared to the rest of the country.

    Judicial Watch also notes that the crimes near the border had been spiking at such an “alarming rate” that “Mexican and American journalists have largely stopped reporting it,” whether for ideological reasons or to avoid backlash from the drug cartels.

    1. Illegal immigrants accounted for nearly 75 percent of federal drug sentences in 2014.This is according to the United States Sentencing Commission, which also found that illegals were involved in nearly 17 percent of drug-trafficking sentences and over 33 percent of federal sentences overall.
    2. A disproportionate amount of illegals are in state prisons. Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and a lawyer, reviewed statistics from the Government Accountability Office and Pew Research Center and compared the number of illegals and non-illegals imprisoned for murder-related offenses in a 2015 National Review piece. Some of his findings:
    • There were 68.57 illegal aliens imprisoned for every 100,000 illegals in Arizona, compared to 54.06 citizens and legal noncitizens imprisoned for every 100,000 citizens and legal noncitizens.
    • There were 97.2 illegals imprisoned for every 100,000 illegals in California, compared to 74.1 citizens and legal noncitizens imprisoned per 100,000 citizen and legal noncitizens.
    • There were 54.85 illegals imprisoned for every 100,00 illegals in Florida, compared to 67.8 legal immigrants imprisoned for every 100,000 legal immigrants.
    • There were 168.75 illegals imprisoned for every 100,000 illegals in New York, compared to 48.12 legal immigrants imprisoned for every 100,000 legal immigrants.
    • There were 54.54 illegals imprisoned for every 100,000 illegals in Texas, compared to 65.43 legal immigrants .

    Kirsanow acknowledged that while comparing murder incarceration rates isn’t a perfect measurement, “it’s difficult to contend that illegal aliens are more law-abiding than legal residents — at least when it comes to major crimes.” But the more disturbing fact was that “approximately 2,430 illegal aliens are in prison just for homicide-related offenses” in California alone.

    “If one assumes that each illegal alien so imprisoned was responsible for just one homicide-related offense, that amounts to about a couple thousand major crimes that, arguably, wouldn’t have occurred but for the actors’ unlawful presence in the United States,” Kirsanow notes. “That translates to thousands of American citizens (and others) across the country slaughtered by individuals who shouldn’t have been here in the first place.”

    1. Tens of thousands of criminal illegals have been released by ICE and are at large in the country. In 2015, ICE released almost 20,000 illegals that committed 64,000 crimes that involve “12,307 drunken driving convictions, 1,728 cases of assault, 216 kidnappings and more than 200 homicide or manslaughter convictions,” according to the Washington Times. It’s even worse when one considers the fact that the Obama administration released “86,000 illegal immigrants who have committed over 231,000 crimes in just the past two and a half years,” according to Independent Journal Review.
    2. The rise in illegals crossing the border has fueled gang violence. In March, the Daily Caller reported that the barbaric MS-13 gang has been recruiting young illegals, resulting in higher crime in the Washington, D.C area. In fact, Montgomery County in Maryland “has seen an unprecedented level of gang-related violence in the last 8 months – with illegal immigrant youth being responsible for 85 percent of street robberies,” according to IJ Review. The horrors of MS-13 have extended to the Brentwood community in Long Island, NY, where the remains of a dead teenager was found for the fifth time in six weeks, likely the result of MS-13.
    3. Sanctuary cities have hampered law enforcement in cracking down on gangs. Heather Mac Donald documented the frustrations of Los Angeles law enforcement officers in 2004 when they couldn’t touch known gang members because of their status as illegals:

    “We can’t even talk about it,” says a frustrated LAPD captain. “People are afraid of a backlash from Hispanics.” Another LAPD commander in a predominantly Hispanic, gang-infested district sighs: “I would get a firestorm of criticism if I talked about [enforcing the immigration law against illegals].”

    The issue is that these gang members tended to sneak back into the country even after they were deported for heinous crimes, and police officers couldn’t enforce immigration laws against them and would have to resort to surveilling these gang members until they commit a crime.

    While these statistics from Mac Donald’s piece are dated, it illustrates just how badly the sanctuary policy has hampered crime:

    • In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens.
    • A confidential California Department of Justice study reported in 1995 that 60 percent of the 20,000-strong 18th Street Gang in southern California is illegal; police officers say the proportion is actually much greater. The bloody gang collaborates with the Mexican Mafia, the dominant force in California prisons, on complex drug-distribution schemes, extortion, and drive-by assassinations, and commits an assault or robbery every day in L.A. County. The gang has grown dramatically over the last two decades by recruiting recently arrived youngsters, most of them illegal, from Central America and Mexico.
    • The leadership of the Columbia Lil’ Cycos gang, which uses murder and racketeering to control the drug market around L.A.’s MacArthur Park, was about 60 percent illegal in 2002, says former assistant U.S. attorney Luis Li. Francisco Martinez, a Mexican Mafia member and an illegal alien, controlled the gang from prison, while serving time for felonious reentry following deportation.

    Unsurprisingly, violent crime has skyrocketed recently in Los Angeles as illegal immigration has surged. In fact, crime among sanctuary cities in general has increased.

    1. Crime has also increased among major cities that are “immigration hubs.” Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro has written:

    David Frum of The Atlantic, no hard-core immigration opponent, wrote in 2015 that as of 2011, there were 25,000 illegal immigrants serving murder sentences, and nearly 3 million offenses committed by illegal immigrants between 2003 and 2009, including 70,000 sex crimes and hundreds of thousands of other violent crimes. “After years of welcome decline,” Frum pointed out, “crime rates are rising in immigration hubs including Houston, Milwaukee, Phoenix, and San Diego.” Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo reported in 2015 that between “2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%. During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.

    Some individual examples of those who were victimized by illegals can be seen here and here.

    http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/01/20/obama-used-more-clemency-power/

    BARACK OBAMA ENDED HIS PRESIDENCY HAVING GRANTED CLEMENCY TO MORE PEOPLE CONVICTED OF FEDERAL CRIMES THAN ANY CHIEF EXECUTIVE IN 64 YEARS

    OVERALL, OBAMA GRANTED CLEMENCY TO 1,927 INDIVIDUALS, A FIGURE THAT INCLUDES 1,715 COMMUTATIONS AND 212 PARDONS.

    But he, OBAMA, also received far more requests for clemency than any U.S. president on record, LARGELY AS A RESULT OF AN INITIATIVE SET UP BY HIS ADMINISTRATION TO SHORTEN PRISON TERMS FOR NONVIOLENT

    FEDERAL INMATES CONVICTED OF DRUG CRIMES.

    Of course, Obama received such a large number of clemency requests in part BECAUSE HIS ADMINISTRATION ASKED FOR THEM. UNDER A PROGRAM LAUNCHED IN 2014 KNOWN AS THE Clemency Initiative, the Justice Department encouraged “qualified federal inmates– as defined by DOJ criteria – to apply to have their prison sentences commuted. The initiative led to a surge in requests and also helps explain why Obama’s use of clemency tilted so heavily toward sentence commutations, rather than pardons.

    “QUALIFIED FEDERAL INMATES” DEFINED AS?

    THEY ARE NON-VIOLENT, LOW-LEVEL OFFENDERS WITHOUT “SIGNIFICANT?” TIES TO LARGE SCALE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS, GANGS OR CARTELS;

    In his record use of commutations, Obama reduced sentences for federal inmates who were convicted in all 50 states, according to our analysis. Among those who received reduced penalties were 568 individuals serving life sentences and two who had been sentenced to death.

    INDEED, including 1,913 pardons, 118 commutations and 13 remissions – during his nearly eight years in office, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Department of Justice statistics.

    5 facts about illegal immigration in the U.S. | Pew Research Center

    www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/…/5-facts-about-illegal-immigration-in-the-u-s/

    4 days ago – The number of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. was lower in 2015 than at the end of the Great Recession. Here are five key findings about …

    LISTED AS NUMBER FOUR (4)

    SIX STATES ACCOUNT FOR 59% of unauthorized immigrants: CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, FLORIDA, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY AND ILLINOIS.

    But individual states have experienced different trends. From 2009 to 2014, the unauthorized immigrant population decreased in seven states: Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina. In all of them, the decline was due to a decrease in unauthorized immigrants from Mexico.

    IN SIX STATES, THE UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANT POPULATION ROSE OVER THE SAME TIME PERIOD: LOUISIANA, MASSACHUSETTS, NEW JERSEY, PENNSYLVANIA, VIRGINIA AND WASHINGTON.

    IN ALL OF THESE BUT LOUISIANA, THE INCREASES WERE DUE TO GROWTH IN UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANT POPULATIONS FROM NATIONS OTHER THAN MEXICO.

    (IN LOUISIANA, THE OVERALL INCREASE WAS DRIVEN BY AN INCREASE IN MEXICAN UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS.)

    —————————————————————————–

    Snippets

    Stop. Catch the last part of that line? This part: “… and recognizing the promising students who represent the next generation of our profession.”

    This is a reference to the fact that the Correspondents’ Dinner uses its proceeds to fund scholarships for those “promising students” who are the “next generation of our profession.” 

    Now. What questions are not being asked here — by journalists? Journalists whose job it is to ask questions.

    What is the elephant in the room that seems to be blissfully ignored?

    WHAT IS THE CENTRAL COMPLAINT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP? And indeed the routine complaint of Republican presidents and presidential candidates (not to mention rank-and-file conservatives) for decades?

    That would be that the media suffers from what seems to be — after several decades of this — an incurable liberal bias. And not by accident, either.

     All those polls taken over the years (like this one from Pew in 2008) repeatedly show a heavy liberal tilt in the journalism community.

    THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS’ ASSOCIATION IS BUT A DROP IN THE OCEAN OF TODAY’S MEDIA, YET A LOOK AT THE SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS THE GROUP ADVERTISES ON ITS WEBSITE IS A TELLING IF NOT STARTLING LOOK AT HOW LIBERAL BIAS IN THE MEDIA IS SELF-PERPETUATED, PASSED FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT.

    Here is the link to the overall site. And a visit here to the section labeled “Scholarships” shows winners from last year with President Obama. And what does the site say? This:

    WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS’ ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES 2016 SCHOLARS

    The White House Correspondents’ Association is pleased to announce 18 scholarship winners in partnership with Howard University, Northwestern University, Columbia University, University of Missouri, University of California at Berkeley, University of Maryland, and the George Washington University.

    So far, so good. Then it lists the winners — AND THEIR INTERESTS. Among those interests?

    • A Howard University winner “is determined to write about the plight of what he calls America’s ‘throwaway’ people: the homeless on our streets, often mentally ill, who are sometimes ignored in our society.”
    • A Northwestern University, Medill School of Journalism winner wants “to hone her skills as a political and social justice reporter.”
    • A COLUMBIA SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM WINNER WANTS TO USE HER REPORTING SKILLS FOR “ULTIMATELY FOCUSING ON POLITICAL ISLAM; PROBLEMS FACED BY MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS AND THE WAY RELIGION IN GENERAL AND ISLAM IN PARTICULAR IS ABUSED BY RADICALS IN UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES.”
    • A University of Missouri, Columbia winner says her “favorite stories are those that involve issues of corporate social responsibility.”
    • Another University of Missouri, Columbia winner enjoys “writing about the connectivity of science, health and the environment with social justice issues.”
    • A University of California, Berkeley winner has been writing “for media outlets such as Univision Noticias.”
    • A University of Maryland, College Park winner “does volunteer work with organizations such as the Maryland Association of Black Journalists, the Capitol Area Food Bank, SHARE Food Network and Kaiser Permanente.”

    NOTICE A CURIOUS PATTERN HERE?

    NOT ONE OF THE UNIVERSITIES THAT WHCA PARTNERS WITH HAS A REPUTATION FOR CONSERVATISM. There is, for example, no partnership with a Hillsdale College or Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University or some similar conservative institution of higher learning.

     AND NOTE ALL OF THESE WINNERS ARE INTERESTED IN USING THEIR JOURNALISTIC SKILLS ON ISSUES LIKE SOCIAL JUSTICE, THE HOMELESS, THE ABUSE OF ISLAM BY RADICALS, CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND MORE.

    STRANGELY, IN TERMS OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM, EVERY ONE OF THESE ISSUES AND MORE ARE TRADITIONALLY IDENTIFIED AS ISSUES IMPORTANT TO LIBERALS.

    Not one of these winners, one suspects, would be into investigating Planned Parenthood. There are, one similarly suspects, no pro-lifers here.

    The winner who contributes to UNIVISION NOTICIAS, famously the home of Trump critics like anchorman JORGE RAMOS, is, one suspects, not eager to be a conservative journalist.

     One can also suspect that these kids will not be seeking writing jobs here at The American Spectator or interning for Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity at Fox. Indeed, Rush informs that to the degree he has used interns in his various projects they are “never from WCHA.” Hannity was a similar negative, when asked. And a query to Wlady Pleszczynski, the editorial director of The American Spectator and editor of AmSpec Online, as to whether there had ever been a WCHA scholarship winner on the premises drew this response: “A joke question, right!?”

    Let’s be clear. Hooray for scholarships. Hooray for ambitious college kids who want a future in journalism. But, at least per the WCHA’s own website, the winners selected by the group for 2016 seem to have been — to a person —

     NOT JUST YOUNG JOURNALISTS IN TRAINING BUT MORE TO THE POINT YOUNG LIBERAL JOURNALISTS IN TRAINING.

     ALL DRAWN FROM A POOL SUPPLIED BY LIBERAL UNIVERSITIES.

     If past WHCA scholarship winners have wound up anywhere in the conservative media — at, say, the Washington Times, Glenn Beck’s the Blaze, National Review, or — gasp! — Breitbart, there is no indication. (Indeed, in the current day, one can only imagine the uproar inside the WHCA, if a scholarship winner was in any way associated with Steve Bannon’s favorite conservative site.)

    Among other things, what the dust-up over President Trump’s non-appearance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner has revealed IS THAT PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES ARE USED AS THE MAIN ATTRACTION TO FUND A SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM THAT, IN TURN, FUNDS YOUNG LIBERAL JOURNALISTS,

     THE PARTICULAR IRONY BEING THAT REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN ESSENTIALLY USED TO PERPETUATE THE LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS THAT THEY AND THEIR SUPPORTERS SO FREQUENTLY COMPLAIN OF.

    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–

    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.
