If AOC really cared: 3 actions to truly help migrants in ‘concentration camps’

If AOC really cared 3 actions to truly help migrants in concentration camps

In a debate, the proper course of action would be to challenge the premise by which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made her case to denounce the “concentration camp” migrant detention facilities along the border. But since chances are slim she’d ever debate me (or anyone) on the issue, I’ll start by stipulating that the conditions at these centers are far from ideal. After all, I’m not trying to win a hypothetical debate. I’m trying to offer actual solutions to a problem that clearly exists even if the extent of one aspect of the problem is overstated.

If the problem is overcrowded facilities, overburdened border patrol agents, and too little resources to handle the mass of humanity that is crossing our border illegally every day, then here are three actions that could be taken immediately by Congress that would make things better for everyone involved.

Over-fund the solution… for now

AOC has declared she will not support spending a dime on fixing the migrant detention centers. This may seem like a contradiction to most; she complains about conditions but will not offer funding to improve the conditions. But it’s not a contradiction at all when we learn her ultimate goal (at this early stage of the Justice Democrats’ conversion of America into a communist state) is to end detention of migrants altogether. She wants them given whatever they need when they get here. Then, she wants them given a hearing date for their asylum claim which they likely won’t attend. From there, they should be released directly to the interior. Yes, that’s exactly what she wants to happen. No detention. No background checks. To health screening. Give them food, money, and a bus ticket to where they want to go.

But let’s, for the sake of argument, assume that we’re still a sovereign nation that will exercise its right to know who is entering the country and what threats they may pose to American citizens. That being the case (for now), we need to be able to detain migrants after they’re apprehended. Considering how many are coming across daily, it behooves us to utilize triage-style funding to get things in order.

I’m never a fan of spending. The government already spends way too much. But the cost of not properly handling and housing migrants will, in the long term, be greater than the cost to fix the immediate issue at hand. These are human beings, and while we can argue all day that the vast majority of them do not qualify for asylum status and therefore shouldn’t be released to the interior or detained, the laws say what they say. We must comply and enforce those laws, which means we need to do what we can to make sure they are kept safe, healthy, and relatively comfortable. I’m not suggesting we should put them up at the Hilton and give them a number for room service, but it makes sense to keep them healthy. Some are truly qualified asylum seekers, and those people should not be punished because of the mass of people taking advantage of our asylum laws.

Until the next two solutions are implemented, Congress should give border patrol a blank check with the understanding that oversight will make sure the additional funds are not abused.

Again, this is temporary. As soon as the real problems can be fixed, the blank check gets rescinded. But right now, we’re in triage-mode. Things are truly that bad.

Increase asylum judiciary 50-fold if necessary

Do you want to know what would cut asylum claims by 50% or more? Make asylum hearings happen in near-real time. Today, asylum hearings are happening months, even years after the initial claims are made. This is why many (most?) of them come. They sign up for asylum, do their time in detention, and then are released to the interior where they can disappear.

What if the hearings happened WHILE they were being detained?

It would be expensive at first, but again the cost of locating them after they’ve disappeared into the interior and failed to come to their asylum hearing is much higher. We would need a temporary triage judiciary to split into two groups: those who try to whittle down the tremendous backlog of asylum claims by migrants who have already disappeared into the interior and another group that works at the asylum detention centers themselves to grant or deny claims while they’re still in custody.

Deportations would rise, of course, since the vast majority of those claiming asylum would not qualify.

The number of migrants making the dangerous journey would drop dramatically because they’d know there is a very good chance they would get here and be sent back home three weeks later.

Change asylum laws to stop enticing migrants

If we don’t want to get into the high costs mentioned above, then we must change the asylum laws. The whole reason we’re seeing record numbers is because they believe they can circumvent our sovereignty thanks to the loopholes present in laws. It’s enticing, knowing there’s a great chance they’ll be released into the interior at some point following their crossing of the border.

This is why they’re willing to spend their life’s savings to pay rapists (better known as cartel goons) to “guide” their families along the treacherous journey. It sickens me that men would be willing to put their wives through the torture, or mothers would be willing to subjugate their children in such ways, but they often start their journey not knowing what’s really going to happen to them. They also go in thinking there’s more available to them here than there really is. This is all part of the propaganda disseminated by the various open borders organizations who are using these people to set a precedent. This is why they lie to them. This is why they entice them. They have an agenda to promote. It’s not about the people they make suffer today. They’re just collateral damage to AOC, many Democrats, and the open borders groups (see George Soros).

Their mentality sickens me. If children are raped along the way, so be it. If families are dying while trying to swim across the Rio Grande, the left knows the media will blame Trump. So be it. The heinous motivations of the people in power for these radical progressive open borders causes never take into account the human toll.

Whether now or later, we must change the laws that encourage migrants to make the dangerous trek. With Democrats unlikely to make the change, we’re back to the first two solutions as being necessary immediately.

Congress could solve these problems for migrants and American citizens alike. But AOC doesn’t want solutions. She wants migrants to keep risking their lives, only to be released unabated. She endangers lives to promote the Justice Democrats’ agenda.

‘Sanctuary Sheriff’ Garry McFadden released convicted child molester Oscar Leonardo to protect him from ICE

Sanctuary Sheriff Garry McFadden released convicted child molester Oscar Leonardo to protect him fro

At some point, Democrats have to come to the conclusion that their little experiment with sanctuary cities has failed. It was supposed to encourage cooperation with the Hispanic community so they’d be more willing to report crimes knowing the people they were reporting won’t be deported. But instead, crime has risen in nearly every sanctuary jurisdiction while cooperation between the communities and law enforcement haven’t gotten any better.

But instead of learning lessons, Democrats are doubling down. One such Democrat is Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden. Known as the “Sanctuary Sheriff” for lording over his county with anti-ICE policies that went against the will of the people, the buddy of Barack Obama has been at the center of controversy for over a year. Now, he’s being questioned about one illegal alien his policy had released, a previously deported convicted child molester who took two additional months for ICE to capture.

“They know if they’re arrested, they’re not gonna be handed over to ICE,” ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said.

Oscar Leonardo sexually assaulted at least one child in McFadden’s district before being granted release. An ICE detainer was in place, which the sheriff’s office ignored. But McFadden doubled down on his policy by saying ICE should have sent an arrest warrant instead of a detainer. Either McFadden is ignorant of the law he’s supposed to uphold or he’s lying for the sake of misdirection as ICE is incapable of issuing warrants. That’s solely done by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Sanctuary jurisdictions choose to ignore detainers, and despite their claims that this makes the community safer, there are numerous instances where they clearly made the community less safe. This instance is one of them, but ICE was able to recapture him after wasting two months and countless man-ours. They could have simply picked him up and deported him had McFadden cooperated with ICE. Instead, he chose to put more children at risk by protecting a child molester.

As long as Democrats like Garry McFadden continue to protect child molesters like Oscar Leonardo instead of the American citizens they’re charged to protect, they should not be given a single vote. If they won’t do their jobs, replace them.

Why E-Verify didn’t work at poultry plants in Mississippi and how to fix it

Why E-Verify didnt work at poultry plants in Mississippi and how to fix it

Many conservatives (myself included at one point) believe E-Verify is the silver bullet in protecting jobs from being taken by illegal immigrants. Some states, including Mississippi, mandate its use for new hires. But as the ICE raids on poultry plants in Mississippi demonstrated, the system isn’t being used 100% of the time as mandated and when it’s used, it doesn’t always work.

There are loopholes illegal immigrants can use to circumvent the system. It doesn’t check on the legality of an individual, only whether or not their paperwork is acceptable. But if that paperwork is being shared or was taken from someone else, including the deceased, then the system won’t flag them. It should.

The reason 680 people were apprehended in a single day last week is because the E-Verify system isn’t foolproof and isn’t being used 100% of the time. This needs to be fixed immediately.

According to the Washington Post:

In Mississippi, the companies — Koch Foods, Peco Foods, PH Food, A&B and Pearl River Foods — intentionally hired Guatemalan and Mexican immigrants who are not authorized to work in the United States “for the purpose of commercial advantage or private financial gain,” according to search-warrant affidavits unsealed in federal court after the Aug. 7 raids.

Investigators allege that numerous employees at Pearl River Foods had submitted stolen names and Social Security numbers, including those belonging to the deceased.

At times, companies did not appear to have made an effort to check certain workers’ information in the online E-Verify system, according to the affidavits.

How to fix it

There are many things that need to be revamped in order for E-Verify to work properly. First and foremost, it needs to be updated through cross-referencing other databases, most notably whatever database the IRS uses to determine that someone is deceased. If the data is inaccurate or dated, it presents an opening for illegal immigrants to exploit.

Second, the laws need to be enforced. If a state mandates the use of E-Verify, then businesses caught not using it should be punished. Right now, that’s just not happening. They’re not even getting a slap on the wrist in most cases. If they’re caught like the poultry plants in Mississippi, then they should be placed on a watch list and progressively punished for their lack of compliance through increasing fines and risk of losing state business licenses.

But the most important change must be in the way the system is used. We have technology available to flag irregularities. If a person’s documents are being used repeatedly at multiple locations in a short time, that should prompt law enforcement to investigate. Chances are good they’ll be able to identify and apprehend illegal immigrants up until the point word gets out their scam is no longer working.

The promise of employment is the key driving force behind the massive migrant problem that’s causing our border crisis. Take away the jobs and many migrants will stop coming. We have the tools. Let’s use them.

Google’s social justice warrior workforce is making demands about ICE, CBP

Googles social justice warrior workforce is making demands about ICE CBP

A petition created by Google employees is circulating through the big tech hallowed halls calling for the company to cease any engagements with ICE, CBP, or any government agencies that “engaged in caging and torturing vulnerable people.”

It’s just the latest group of progressive employees at a tech giant making demands of their employers regarding the government clientele they service. Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook have had similar situations regarding government contracts, particularly with the military. This is the first one to be hit with demands regarding border patrol and ICE law enforcement agencies.

“Google has repeatedly advertised its commitments to implementing ethical guardrails on its tech. Google’s AI Principles state that Google will not build technologies ‘whose purpose contravenes widely accepted principles of international law and human rights,'” the Googlers posted in a statement. “By any interpretation, CBP and ICE are in grave violation of international human rights law. The company has also pledged to create a diverse, inclusive, and psychologically safe workplace for all its workers, including immigrants and Latinx people — the very populations whose communities, families, and friends are being terrorized by CBP and ICE.”

In that single paragraph, one can easily discern the misplace passions these leftists are experiencing. The whole document is laden with logical fallacies. In this paragraph, they’re “begging the question” by saying “by any interpretation” ICE and CBP are committed human rights violations. This is, of course, not even close to the truth. It’s not by “any” interpretation. It’s only by a very narrow interpretation of the necessary actions ICE and CBP undertake in order to keep us safe that anyone can consider these human rights violations.

Google employees accuse Border Patrol of ‘torturing’ immigrants, refuse to work with agencies

Google employees launched the petition after CBP announced it was accepting bids from private companies to provide cloud services for the agency. Over 700 Google employees have signed the petition, along with over 50 former employees and others.

The petition compared Google working with the immigration agencies to IBM working with the Nazis. The petition cites Google’s principles for developing artificial intelligence and staying within “ethical guardrails.”

Keep in mind, many of the people signing these petitions have power over the information and news we’re presented online. As Google continues to claim to be unbiased, their own employees are telling a very different story.
