Tevya is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Saturday, March 10, 2018. Our wise friend, Wasp Tevya, is at the breakfast table this morning. Tevya has illegal immigration and the growing list of sanctuary cities and states on his mind. He is preparing Butternut Squash Muffins for breakfast this morning, hoping that all the Poppers will join him. Make Tevya a happy camper and arrive at the table as quickly as possible. I'd leave the door open, but these days I fear for my safety.

Illegal Immigration is not a Game

Thanks so much for coming to breakfast this morning. A strange and dangerous phenomenon is sweeping our nation, and it is placing all of us in danger. Mayors and Governors are taking it upon themselves to defy federal immigration laws and protect dangerous criminals from ICE officials. It is impossible to defend their actions. ICE is not going after "illegals" who are working hard and hoping for a way to remain in this country. ICE is, however, going after hardened criminals who have committed heinous crimes. Politicians across the country are determined to keep rapists, murderers and drug dealers safe. They are not at all concerned with the safety of America's families. I can't wrap my head around this sickening development no matter how I look at it. Can you?

A Broken Promise

A sanctuary city is a municipal jurisdiction that has decided to willfully limit their cooperation with the federal government's efforts to enforce immigration law. They prohibit police and city employees from questioning illegal immigrants suspected of committing crimes. California is in the news at the moment, but the appalling truth is that there are over 300 U.S. jurisdictions including states, counties and cities that offer sanctuary to anyone here illegally, even if they have just murdered the girl next door. Have we lost our collective minds? It is apparent that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has lost her marbles. She warned illegal aliens that an ICE raid was about to happen. All the rapists, murderers and drug dealers took cover and evaded ICE. The victims of these felons were just preyed upon again, This time the perpetrator was Mayor Schaaf. Her actions not only endangered the citizens of Oakland, but they endangered law enforcement as well. For that matter, her actions endangered you and me, because criminal illegal aliens are free to move about the country. With so many sanctuary jurisdictions across the nation, their safety is ensured. You and I are not so lucky.

You Are Invited

An Invitation to Harm

We have always had strong immigration policies in place. Sadly, prior administrations chose to ignore the laws, and now we are all suffering the consequences of lax or non-existent law enforcement. The Trump administration has decided to end this madness once and for all. President Trump has promised us a wall. He has promised us safety from illegal alien criminals. He, clearly, is a man who keeps his promises, unlike politicians in Congress who are doing everything possible to stall progress. They drag their feet and people like Kate Steinle die. How long can we allow this insanity to continue? If the Trump administration is to succeed in this area, Congress must act. Sadly, Congress takes forever to accomplish anything, so it will be up to ordinary citizens to push them to finally do something meaningful with regard to immigration and sanctuary jurisdictions. H.R. 4760 is a bill that would allow the administration to withhold funds from sanctuary cities. It would also allow individuals to sue local governments when they are harmed by aliens released by sanctuary jurisdictions. I would like to see an addition to H.R. 4760 that would allow people like Mayor Schaaf to be subject to arrest and imprisonment. This citizen bug says, "Bring it On."


Tevya's Song

Dear God, you made so many liberals

It isn't a crime to be a liberal

But it's no great honor either.

      Good Morning Brian,

      The issue here concerns illegal immigrants who have committed crimes that anyone would be arrested for. Sanctuary citizens are harboring criminals. That is against the law , and those responsible for shielding these criminals are themselves, criminals.

      What's the illegal part of being an illegal immigrant? Is it a crime to simply be an undocumented immigrant residing in the United States? What about sneaking across the border?

      The confusion lies in the legal difference between improper entry and unlawful presence. Here's what you need to know:

      Improper Entry Is a Crime

      To be clear, the most common crime associated with illegal immigration is likely improper entry. Under federal criminal law, it is misdemeanor for an alien (i.e., a non-citizen) to:

      Enter or attempt to enter the United States at any time or place other than designated by immigration officers;

      Elude examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

      Attempt to enter or obtain entry to the United States by willfully concealing, falsifying, or misrepresenting material facts.

      The punishment under this federal law is no more than six months of incarceration and up to $250 in civil penalties for each illegal entry. These acts of improper entry -- including the mythic "border jumping" -- are criminal acts associated with illegally immigrating to the United States.

      Like all other criminal charges in the United States, improper entry must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict.

      Unlawful Presence Is Not a Crime

      Some may assume that all immigrants who are in the United States without legal status must have committed improper entry. This simply isn't the case. Many foreign nationals legally enter the country on a valid work or travel visa, but fail to exit before their visa expires for a variety of reasons.

      But mere unlawful presence in the country is not a crime. It is a violation of federal immigration law to remain in the country without legal authorization, but this violation is punishable by civil penalties, not criminal. Chief among these civil penalties is deportation or removal, where an unlawful resident may be detained and removed from the country. Unlawful presence can also have negative consequences for a resident who may seek to gain re-entry into the United States, or permanent residency.

      Both improper entry and unlawful presence should be avoided by any immigrant to the United States, but an illegal alien cannot be criminally charged or incarcerated simply for being undocumented. To learn more, check out FindLaw's section on Immigration Law.

      I recently learned more from a radio commentator. If I correctly remember and understand the points made, police and sheriffs are charged with enforcing criminal law; being an immigrant without the required documents is a matter of civil law; police and sheriffs may, with due process, arrest and hold criminals but may not arrest and hold those who have not complied with a civil law; once any criminal charge has been dealt with by a criminal court, an immigrant who has not acquired the requisite documentation may not legally be held by those charged with enforcing criminal law, and it is illegal for Trump to try to coerce them to do so. A comparable situation would be a street vendor not having the required permit. The punishment for non-compliance does not include being put in jail.

      Good Morning Brian,

      Research is a good thing, but what you have uncovered doesn't do a thing to further the sanity of sanctuary cities. The bottom line is that we are a nation of laws, period! Once we become completely lawless, we are lost.

      Brian

      Is your point, that not all of the illegal aliens, just the majority of them are criminals beyond just being illegal. Remember, it took only 19 Terrorists to successfully attack America on our own soil. The bigger picture is why should we allow any foreign criminals stay in the US and be protected by state and local government. What about protect and serve. Who are they supposed to protect and who are they actually serving.

      You say " I've read that city police departments are hesitant to cooperate with ICE because that makes undocumented immigrants fearful of cooperating with the police, which makes solving local crimes more difficult. "

      B:

      This is an insane argument for them to make. We have major gang problems in the US cities and the fear of the gangs prevents people in those gang infested areas to cooperate with the police.

      In the illegal alien scenario, if we get these criminals deported, why wouldn't the crimes go down in those areas of sanctuary?

      If you commit a crime in Mexico, you might not survive the prison term. And it doesn't matter in Mexico, if you even committed the crime. BTW, Mexico protects its Southern Border, yet they don't want us to protect our Southern Border. It is also, Mexico's Northern Border, a border that is really in the control of the Mexican and other drug cartels.

      So, Brian,tell us again what is your point!

      I researched your claims. The site Politifact, citing ICE data, says that "close to 75 percent" of those ICE arrested were convicted criminals. That means that a quarter of them weren't. Of those ICE arrested January-April 2017, 30,473 were convicted criminal aliens and of those more than 2,700 were convictions for violent crimes. So of the roughly 75% arrested who were criminals, over 90% had not committed violent crimes. I have seen descriptions of cases in which a teenager committed a crime, such as a theft, was dealt with appropriately by the courts, thereafter lived a model life, and decades later was arrested and deported by ICE as a "convicted criminal". I've read that city police departments are hesitant to cooperate with ICE because that makes undocumented immigrants fearful of cooperating with the police, which makes solving local crimes more difficult. For more on this, see the online Boston Review article "Whom Do Sanctuary Cities Protect" by Lauren Carasik.

      At this point, it is no more than a rumor about these intelligence people running as democrats. But, it sounds as daffy to be true. Who would have ever believed that anyone in the US would support sanctuary cities and states to prevent the deportation of illegal aliens that commit serious felonies in the US. What would happen if even American Tourists would commit any crime in Mexico. They would rot in jail.

      The hot CA sun probably creates democrats from people that don't find shade. :)

      As for NJ, probably brain freeze from the winter frost, and malaria from the humid summer months.

      We would be happy in the middle of the country, at least politically. But, I think you would have had to be born there.

      BTW, did you hear who is going to run for the 2018 elections. US Intelligence agency people. They will be coming out of the deep state closet. Scary!

      It is impossible to explain why Californians would welcome felons into their neighborhoods. Perhaps people like you should rally and make some noise. Otherwise, I suggest you move somewhere else. I may have to leave NJ. We have a Brown like figure in power now. I'll see you at the Inn. Lock the door.

      Twice the people of California voted Jerry Brown as the governor. I guess California has been the cesspool of democrats forever, with the exception of Ronald Reagan. I grew up in Manhattan and Long Island another cesspool for democrats.

      If people wanted to know what the United States would be like under an election to election never ending democrat controlled congress and president, they only have to look to California.

      Governor Brown told president Trump NO WALLS for California and he Brown is building bridges and he referenced the California High Speed Rail as his bridge. Yet, the project is way behind, over budget and this is the only train that doesn't have tracks built.

      At the same time, the infrastructure of CA is not maintained, new ones have been rejected. CA is a desert and we continually go into drought, yet CA politicians didn't approve a single dam or solution for the drought. Conservation of water is their only theme. With the CA population doubling since Jerry Brown's first governorship in the 1980s, conservation just isn't viable. As millions sneak into CA they should be required to bring their own water. :)

      Has anyone been able to intelligently explain why CA and other sanctuaries want to keep Convicted Felons from being deported. They have already proved beyond a reasonable doubt that they are criminals.

      Along with Hillary and federal democrats, Brown and his democrats need to be indicted and put into prison.That we they will be very close to those felons they are giving sanctuary.

      With the CA democrat logic, it is no wonder that the CA education system is so bad.

      The INN is the only sanctuary for people living in the democrat fouled up states. Eat drink and be merry because the next election brings more democrats. yuck.

      US News and World Report just came out with this predictable statistic: Out of all 50 US States, California was rated 50th for Quality of Life...California, my State of birth, has turned into a cesspool of political corruption, opportunism, and a social cancer that ignores its own legal residents and denies them Federal and local protection while providing a safe haven for illegal criminal aliens...

      Beam me up, Scotty...California is totally wacko and has been since Jerry Brown's first iteration as it's governor...His father, "Pat" Brown, was governor during the 60's campus unrest at Bezerkly and the race riots in Watts as California introduced us to "progressive" liberalism...Willie Brown, no relation to Moonbeam, rose from the ashes of conservative San Francisco and became the king-maker for California Democratic politics, which have dominated that state since...

      California's slide into that cesspool has been going on for nearly 60 years...Small wonder the state is now defying the federal government...What you allow is what you teach, and the California voter has allowed the progressives to run amuck with their freedoms and safety, one proposition after another...

      The rule of law has to matter in our nation, because without it we don't have a country, just chaos. What's happening now in all sectors of society is intolerable. The crying has to stop. The calls for impeachment have to stop. The savage treatment of law enforcement has to stop. The lying press has to be stopped. We need to restore decency, common sense and a respect for the law.

      Governors and mayors who support open borders have furthered their agenda by declaring sanctuary states/cities, and they have the support of far left organizations such as the ACLU - they help provide $$ for courtroom battles.

      I don't understand it either. How can living in the shadows be the kind of life anyone would choose? In any case, our nation and those crossing the border illegally entered into a shaky deal that left us where we are now. Finally, we have a president who wants to correct this mess once and for all. Sadly, the Dems want to leave things as they are, which makes no sense at all. I am sick of politicians who prey upon the weak and make fools out of those who put them in office. Sanctuary cities are the ultimate insult that puts all of us at risk. I'll see you at the Inn, Lori. Lock the door behind you. It's not safe out there.

      I don't understand how these people get away with defying the laws of the land. There will be many American's harmed by the criminal element.

      On a slightly different topic, I always wonder why people don't go through the legal process to become legal citizens. At this point I think it's because the illegals who come into our county unlawfully have been allowed to do so for so long and are rewarded for their crime by getting various financial types of assistance. I lived in California for half of my life. There hispanic population is probably greater than caucasian. I have seen a great many working hard working families. I don't know if they get assistance or not, but at least they're working. That still doesn't make it right to come in illegally.

      A few years back there was a kind of documentary about Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisprer. He talked about the hardships of living in Mexico and crossed the border illegally. He took the camera's to the spot where he crossed the border, there was no conscience about it. It was glorified. He expressed his gratitude for what opportunities America has offered him. In 2009 he was finally granted US citizenship. He came as a teenager and was 37 when he got his citizenship. It really bothers me that the documentary glorified his illegal and clandestine entrance into America.

      If I were a politician (bite your tongue Tom) Maybe I could understand the urge to do ANYTHING to allow prospective voters to stay in this country regardless of their status as citizens, lawless, criminals or whatever. Then again I would not be a Progressive Democrat Scofflaw so I doubt it. The Mayor of Oakland, Governor and Attorney General of California should be ruling as inmates of Gitmo since their policies are domestic terrorism personified.
