Immigrant Basher Tomi Lahren Called Out On Her Family’s Immigration History

In case you missed it, conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren, best known for her hateful attacks on immigrants on social media and on her favorite hate outlet Fox News, was recently called out about her own family’s immigration history on the popular daytime TV show The View. Specifically, Lahren was called out about the hypocrisy in her insistence that immigration to the United States should be based on academic merit and that once admitted, immigrants must learn to speak english so as to assimilate to American culture.

Turns out the hosts of CBS’ The View got their hands on a report by a researcher who dug into Lahren’s family history and found out that Lahren’s great grandmother came to the U.S. from Germany and that after 40 years of living here, she still spoke german. This means by Lahren’s own standards, her great grandmother was a bad immigrant who failed to assimilate to the U.S., and deserved to be sent back to her native Germany.

Lahren was asked on Fox and Friends to address the immigration hypocrisy charge. To her credit, she correctly stated what she is being called out for. Lahren said, “What she [the researcher] was hoping to do was trying to call me a hypocrite for believing in merit-based immigration. Again she failed miserably….” However after correctly laying out the accusation against her, Lahren wentoff on a tangent, deliberately sidestepping the central charge–that by her own standards, her great grandma , who never learnt english, is no different than the non english speaking immigrants she now greatly despises. True to form, Lahren’s Fox News buddies never pressed her on the central charge, instead allowing her to wiggle her way out of it.

It would be interesting if the same researcher who dug into Lahren’s family history would go back and also look into whether the said german-speaking great grandma or other Lahren’s ancestors were ever beneficiaries of federal government programs she now wants Trump to use as a basis of denying people green cards. My guess is more Tomi Lahren immigration hypocrisy will come to light .

Bottomline folks, immigration has always been a complex issue in America because we are a country of immigrants. Tomi Lahren is the latest but certainly won’t be the last of Republicans who continue to advocate harsh immigration policies that punish and malign the current crop of immigrants for things their own ancestors did when they first arrived here. Surely Tomi Lahren, if it was okay for your great grandma to speak german after living here for 40 years, a reasonable argument can be made that she wasn’t a merit-based immigrant and that maybe you should not be advocating for policies that pin assimilation to the ability to speak/learn english.

5,460 Migrant Children Separated From Parents By Trump Admin

In a shocking new piece, the Associated Press now places the tally of migrant children separated from their parents as a result of Trump’s harsh immigration policy at 5,460. This is almost double the initial 2,814 figure the government cited in court when U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw of the Southern District of California ordered an end to the cruel family separation policy in June 2018. In ordering the Trump administration to stop the family separation policy except in limited circumstances (unverifiable parent or threat to child safety), the federal judge also ordered the immediate reunification of the separated children with their families.

For the record, back in June 2018 when the federal judge ordered an end to the family separation policy, it was widely acknowledged both by immigration activists and government officials that the final tally would end up being higher than the 2,814 figure presented in court because the Trump administration was already separating migrant children from their parents even before they officially embarked on the family separation policy in the Spring of 2018.

It is fair to say that the new tally of 5,460 migrant children which almost doubles the initial 2,814 figure, is way more than anyone expected and further cements the conclusion already reached by many that Trump’s immigration policy is the most cruel and inhumane in U.S. history. The government separating one child from their family as a result of an immigration violation is already cruel and unusual punishment. When the government separates 5,400 children from their families as a result of immigration violations, that is sufficient grounds for a Human Rights violations probe by the United Nations, especially when according to the AP piece, as many as 71 children 2 years old or less(5 of them only months old) were also victims of this cruel immigration policy. Simply put folks, no immigration policy is worth ripping a baby less than a year old from their mother, and no decent human being would ever defend such a policy.

It is also worth pointing out that child health advocates repeatedly warned the Trump administration that separating children from their parents would cause severe and irreversible mental and psychological injuries to them. These warnings were made while the Trump administration was still conducting the family separation policy. Well, according to the AP piece, it appears that even after the federal judge ordered the an end to the family separation policy in June 2018, the Trump administration disregarded the judge’s order and proceeded to separate a further 1,090 children—an inexcusable abuse of power.

Bottom line folks, immigration has always been and still remains one of the most complex issues any U.S. administration faces. The reason for this is very simple–America remains a country of immigrants and issues related to immigration elicit sharp reactions from both sides of the political divide. The Trump administration is not the first, nor will it be the last one to enact an immigration policy that generates a lot of public outcry. One only hopes however that the Trump administration’s cruel and inhumane family separation policy is the last immigration policy any U.S. administration ever enacts in total disregard to the serious and irreversible health consequences it subjects young migrant children to. As Senator and Presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) famously says, “We are better than this.”

El Paso Shooter’s Manifesto Echoes John Cornyn’s Tweet

After the deadly weekend shootings in El Paso Texas and Dayton Ohio, the President’s hateful rhetoric and especially his hardline stance on immigrants has taken center stage. A recent tweet by Senator John Cornyn(R-TX) is also getting closer scrutiny because some claim the El Paso shooter’s manifesto echoed similar anti-Hispanic sentiments as Senator Cornyn’s tweet–that Hispanics are replacing Whites in Texas.

Now we can all agree that it is unfair to pin any national tragedy on a politician’s previous public comments and Yours Truly is certainly not suggesting here that the El Paso shooter read Senator Cornyn’s tweet and then decided to open fire on Hispanic shoppers at a Walmart in El Paso. What is fair debate however is that President Trump has a well documented history of stoking racial tensions using very incendiary language that has even garnered praise from White Supremacy groups. It is also well known that Congressional Republicans like Senator Cornyn rarely push back on the President when he engages in such hateful rhetoric, the subject of Yours Truly’s recent post “GOP Complicit In Trump’s Racism”

Therefore when a hate crime against Hispanic shoppers like the one that happened in El Paso takes place, it is fair to confront Senator John Cornyn and other Republicans about their decision to remain silent even when the President engages in race-baiting speech. In Senator Cornyn’s case in particular, his tweet pointing out the fact that the Hispanic rate of migration to the state of Texas outnumbers that of Whites by a 9 to 1 margin certainly raises justifiable questions in light of the El Paso shooting. Was Senator Cornyn pushing the “White Replacement” conspiracy theory that is very popular among White Supremacy Groups worldwide?

It is well known that one of the grievances raised by hate groups and especially White Supremacists worldwide is this idea of “White Replacement”—that somehow there’s a global conspiracy to replace the White race with other ethnic groups. You’ll remember during the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, that White Supremacy advocates could be heard chanting “Jews will not replace us”. This “White Replacement” hysteria is fueling the growth of anti-immigrant political groups in Western Europe and some political pundits argue is the same hysteria currently being pushed by President Trump and his GOP with their harsh anti-immigrant rhetoric. It is therefore perfectly in order for Senator Cornyn to be questioned about the motivation behind his 9 to 1 tweet.

It also cannot be left unsaid that during a recent Congressional hearing, Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took Deputy FBI Director Michael McGarrity to task over why the FBI and other law enforcement agencies(like DHS) are not doing more to combat the rising threat of domestic terrorism posed by White Supremacy groups, a subject Yours Truly wrote about in “AOC Exposes FBI’s Terrorism Double Standard” . (AOC is always ahead of the curve folks).

Deputy Director McGarrity’s response was that there are no current laws/legal provisions that allow the FBI to vigorously go after domestic terrorists. The question then becomes, how does the same FBI and DHS currently target people they perceive to be “Black extremists” or “Black militants”? What current provisions/laws are they basing these surveillance practices on, that they are seemingly unwilling or unable to apply to White Supremacists? There have been numerous credible media reports that surveillance on “Black militants” is indeed happening as we speak in most major U.S. cities–some for reasons as mundane as anti-Trump/DHS social media posts, or even organizing,/participating in Black Lives Matter protests. Are these media reports “fake news”? These are some of the questions the public expects the mainstream media to pose to FBI and DHS brass in light of the two deadly weekend mass shootings.

Bottom line, the mainstream media fails the public miserably in the way it covers national tragedies. Specifically, the questions that need to be answered are often not answered because other incidents usually pop up and take the cameras/spotlight away. The El Paso shooting has raised two very important questions that needs to be addressed the first one being how surveillance capabilities of the FBI and DHS are being misused/abused. Are the FBI and DHS wasting surveillance resources needlessly chasing down perceived “militants” of color while totally ignoring the actual threat of domestic terrorism by White Supremacists? The second question (a no-brainer), is whether the hate-filled rhetoric emanating from President Trump and his Republican party is fueling the rise White Supremacy groups in the U.S.? These are two questions the mainstream media must seriously delve into in the aftermath of the two deadly shootings in El Paso and Dayton. The Mainstream media will likely give Trump and Senator John Cornyn a pass as they usually do with Republicans. However you can rest assured that Yours Truly, your trusted grassroots journalist, will not only hold Sen Cornyn’s feet to the fire regarding this racist tweet, but will also and make it the citadel upon which his 2020 reelection prospects fail. Stay tuned.

Missouri Court Denies Illegal Immigrant An English Translator Then Takes Away Her Biological Son

A shocking ABC News piece says a Missouri court has stripped an illegal immigrant from Guatemala of parental rights to her biological son, ruling in favor of the boy’s American adoptive parents. What’s even more shocking about this seemingly cruel Missouri court decision is that the Guatemalan mother, Encarnacion Bail Romero, who does not speak English, was denied an English translator throughout the court proceedings that resulted in her losing her biological son to the American adoptive parents. Encarnacion Bail Romero told ABC News, “Nobody could help me because I don’t speak English.” The Missouri court also stripped Romero of visitation rights to her biological son–a total travesty of justice.

According to the ABC News piece the only offense this Guatemalan mom seems to have committed is coming to the U.S. illegally. She was apparently arrested after an immigration raid at a chicken processing plant where she worked. So this was clearly someone who came to the the U.S. to work and provide a better future for her young son. After her arrest, her then 11 months old son was adopted by American parents Seth and Melinda Moser and stayed with them for the entire duration of her incarceration (5 years).

Bottom line, reasonable people will disagree as to whether coming to the U.S. illegally is sufficient cause for someone to lose custody of their Biological child. All reasonable people will agree however that it is a serious miscarriage of justice for a court to take away the parental rights of a non-English speaking illegal immigrant without even according them a translator. This is wrong and immoral!!

DHS-ICE Illegally Detaining U.S. Citizens

A troubling report on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show says DHS-ICE is increasingly detaining U.S. Citizens, something it has absolutely no legal authority to do. According to host Joy Reid who was subbing for the vacationing Maddow, this stems from a legally questionable practice currently in place in many U.S. counties where DHS-ICE places “detainers” on county jail inmates it suspects are either not in the U.S. legally, or even if here legally, are subject to deportation proceedings based on their criminal convictions. The Maddow segment focused on Peter Brown, a Philadelphia native who DHS-ICE almost mistakenly deported to Jamaica. For the record DHS-ICE has no legal authority to detain a U.S. citizen so any ICE detainer placed on a U.S. citizen is void on its face.

The full Maddow segment is available here but the relevant clip is below.

So for example if someone is convicted in Harris County Texas for say DWI, and jailed for say 6 months at the county jail, one of the preliminary issues that is determined by county jail officials is whether the inmate is a U.S. citizen. If it is determined that the inmate is not a U.S. citizen then DHS-ICE places a “detainer” on them essentially telling the Harris County jail officials to detain the said inmate for an extra 48 hours(2 days) to allow DHS-ICE to come and pick them up for deportation proceedings.

The problem with this policy is that it is prone to a lot of racial and ethnic profiling by county jail officials who often arbitrarily classify inmates who don’t “look like” or “speak like” Americans as non-citizens and thereby illegally subjecting them to DHS-ICE detainers. This is especially problematic in immigrant-rich cities like Houston which is home to many naturalized U.S. citizens who don’t “look like” or “speak like” Americans.

According to the Maddow segment, DHS-ICE apparently enters into contracts with county officials where they pay them an agreed sum for every inmate the county detains for them. It turns out however that in addition to this “detainer” policy being patently illegal as applied to U.S. citizens, it is also draining county tax dollars from the resultant lawsuits. In other words this “detainer” policy is ending up costing counties infinitely more money in lawsuits than the money DHS-ICE pays them to detain inmates for them. So in their zeal to push a “tough-on-immigration” agenda using the “detainers”, county officials(often Republican counties) are ending up wasting much needed tax dollars settling lawsuits brought by illegally detained U.S. citizens—a total travesty.

Bottom line as Yours Truly has said all along, Congress must step in and enforce some checks on DHS-ICE’s seemingly absolute powers. It seems as if at every turn DHS-ICE is violating the constitutional rights of poor immigrants whether that be through its evil family separation policy, illegal surveillance of legal immigrants or now illegally detaining U.S. citizens. A wise man once said, “power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” It’s about time the U.S. Congress reigned in DHS-ICE’s absolute power.

Handy List Of GOP Senators Supporting Trump’s Unconstitutional Emergency Declaration

The U.S. Senate recently voted on President Trump’s 2/15/2019 national emergency declaration. President Trump had requested 5.7 billion to build a wall at the U.S border with Mexico in an effort to stem the tide of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. through the southern border. Congress did not approve the 5.7 billion Trump requested and as a result Trump resorted to declaring a national emergency which would among other things grant him authority to redirect monies already earmarked by congress for other projects to be used for his border wall–a clear cut end-run around the well-established congressional “power of the purse” and a separation of powers issue.

Shortly after Trump declared his national emergency, the Democrat-controlled House passed HJ Resolution 46(HJ Res.46), essentially rebuking the declaration for among other things, its unconstitutionality. The resolution passed the House by a vote of 245-182 on 2/26/2019. The U.S. Senate then took up HJ Res. 46 and on 3/14/2019 passed it with a 59-41 vote (12 GOP Senators opposing Trump and crossing over to vote with Democrats in support of HJ Res.46).

There was absolutely no question that President Trump’s national emergency declaration was an affront to the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers. You don’t have to take Yours Truly’s word for it on the unconstitutionality of Trump’s national emergency declaration, just listen to GOP Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT). Sen Romney said about his opposition to Trump’s national emergency declaration, “This is a vote for the Constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core…For the Executive Branch to override a law passed by Congress would make it the ultimate power rather than a balancing power.”

Even on a clear cut constitutional issue as this, 41 Republican Senators still supported Trump’s move. Below is a Handy List of the shameful GOP Senators

Bottom line, these 41 GOP Senators who supported Trump’s clear cut unconstitutional national emergency declaration have demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that they have no idea what their constitutional duties are and consequently, do not belong in the U.S. Senate. Voters should look closely at this Handy List to see which of these 41 Senators are up for reelection in 2020 and vote them out!!

Trump Admin Declaring Migrant Parents Ineligible To Reunite With Their Own Children

Rachel Maddow yesterday did a segment about Trump administration’s infamous family separation policy. The segment was based on the day’s breaking news that House Democrats have issued a subpoena to the Trump Administration requesting all documents related to its family separation policy–the first subpoena by House Democrats to the Trump administration

In Maddow’s interview with Rep Karen Bass however, the California Dem dropped a major bombshell when she revealed that the Trump administration has empowered Border Patrol agents to unilaterally and arbitrarily declare migrant parents ineligible to reunify with their own children–a very shocking revelation .

Rep Bass told Maddow, “One of the things that concerns me a lot Rachel is this category of parents that were considered ineligible to reunify with their children. There is no basis for a Border Patrol agent to determine who is eligible or ineligible to be a parent. We do not treat children that way in the child welfare system when their parents have been charged with neglect and abuse, so why on earth would we do that to parents who have not had any charge like that at all?”

The full Maddow segment is available here but the relevant clip is below

It is shocking how much power the Trump administration has entrusted to Border Patrol agents and others to make arbitrary but highly consequential decisions affecting the lives of migrant families. Think about that folks, even a federal judge does not have the power to unilaterally and without any due process whatsoever, declare a migrant parent “ineligible” to reunite with their own children yet the Trump administration has empowered Border Patrol agents working under the auspices of DHS to do just that.

Yours Truly would be remiss if he didn’t give a shout out to our very own rookie Rep Sylvia Garcia, (H-Town pride) who during the House hearings asked the question every American parent would like to pose to DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen if given the opportunity; “Did you ever just say this really goes against humanity, we should not be doing this to children? Did you think of your own child and what would happen if somebody took your child from you?” Rep Garcia’s question is what the mainstream media should pester each and every Trump administration official involved with this evil family separation policy.

Bottom line folks the Trump administration’s family separation policy will go down as one of the most inhumane, and yes, evil U.S. government policy ever, the latest exhibit being this bombshell revelation by Rep Karen Bass that Border Patrol agents are unilaterally and arbitrarily declaring migrant parents ineligible to reunify with their own children. Folks, this is totally unacceptable and we hope congressional Democrats and the mainstream media make it the big deal that it is

Alabama Sheriff Stole $1.5M Meant To Feed Immigration Detainees

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin (Republican)

A shocking piece by The Week says an Alabama Sheriff, a Republican, personally pocketed $1.5 million meant to feed immigration detainees. Etowah County has a contract with the federal government(DHE-ICE) to house immigration detainees as they await adjudication of their immigration cases. As a result of this contract with the federal government, Etowah County receives federal funds from DHS-ICE to feed the county’s immigration detainees. Turns out when $3 million of the federal funds were not spent on feeding the immigration detainees(surplus), Republican Sheriff Entrekin kept half of that($1.5 million) for himself.

While many people from other parts of the country may find this story shocking, this kind of graft is actually very common, even legal in the deep-red Republican state of Alabama. The same Sheriff Entrekin was in the news a few months ago for a similar story. He apparently spent some $750,000 of Alabama state funds meant to feed state inmates at Etowah County to buy himself a beach house. This story made national news but the shocking part was that Alabama law allowed him to do that.

Specifically, Alabama law apparently allows a County Sheriff to personally pocket half of the money that was earmarked to feed inmates but is not used for that purpose(half of the surplus). So for example if $5 million is earmarked for feeding County inmates and at the end of the calendar year $2 million of that was not used(surplus), half of that($1 million) goes to the County’s general fund and the other half($1 million) is personally pocketed by the Sheriff. As you might expect, county inmates in Alabama are often served inadequate and even rotten food as the article correctly points out–a total travesty!!

Excerpt from Bonnie Kristian’s 12/31/2018 piece in The Week

It is against this backdrop that Sheriff Entrekin finds himself in trouble with federal authorities. In other words according to him, because the state of Alabama allows him to literally starve county inmates so he can buy himself a beach house, he figured he could do the same with federal immigration detainees housed in his Etowah County. Out of the $3 million surplus in federal funds meant to feed immigration detainees, he kept $1.5 million for himself. Luckily it appears federal prosecutors are not amused with this kind of out and out graft that is apparently legal in Alabama and may soon go after outgoing Sheriff Entrekin ( he lost his re-election bid this past November)

Bottom line, maybe this should be an eye opener to House Democrats and indeed the mainstream media to start scrutinizing how federal funds earmarked for immigration detainees are being used. Yours Truly will go out on a limb and say the kind of shocking corruption reported in Etowah County is by no means an isolated case–especially in deep-red “tough-on-immigration” Republican states.

Video Shows Migrant Children Abused At Arizona Detention Center

Surveillance footage shows migrant children dragged on the floor at a migrant detention center in Arizona

A shocking video obtained by The Arizona Republic shows migrant children being mercilessly dragged on the floor by detention officials at the now defunct Hacienda del sol detention facility in Arizona. These migrant detention facilities even though privately run, are overseen by the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) meaning this shocking incident will almost definitely be investigated by House Democrats. The original video by The Arizona Republic is available here but the relevant clip is below

Abuse of migrant detainees by detention officials is however nothing new. The root cause of migrant detainee abuse is the unspoken truth that thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, private migrant detention centers are for all intents and purposes above the law. In other words thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Correctional Servs. Corp. v. Malesko, 534 U.S. 61, 63 (2001), it is virtually impossible for abused migrants to prevail in civil lawsuits against these private prisons, even in cases of egregious abuses like the ones captured in this video. As a matter of fact some have argued that this is precisely why DHS subcontracts migrant detention to these private prisons–that way both DHS and the prisons avoid civil liability for abuses.

It is therefore very important that House Democrats if they decide to investigate this troubling incident, look beyond the specific instances of abuse here and address the root cause of migrant detainee abuse which is that nobody(neither DHS nor the private prisons) is ever held civilly liable for abuses. Unless and until there’s a realization by both DHS and these private prisons that they risk being hit with hefty financial penalties for abusing migrants in their custody, nobody should expect them to treat migrant detainees any better.

Bottom line, House Democrats need to grill DHS secretary about the abuse of migrants at DHS-overseen private detention centers. More importantly, House Democrats need to come up with legislation aimed at forcing these DHS-overseen detention centers to compensate migrants who can show that their constitutional rights were violated while in custody. Then and only then will these private detention centers start treating detained migrants like human beings. House Democrats must solve the migrant detainee abuse problem to save victims from wasting their time seeking redress at the Roberts Supreme Court, especially now that Kavanaugh is there.

Trump’s Golf Club Committed Immigration Crimes

A bombshell New York Daily News piece says the Trump Golf Club in Bedminster New Jersey furnished its employees with fake permanent resident cards(“greencards”) and social security numbers in order to hide the fact that the employees lacked authorization to legally work in the U.S. This if corroborated is a slam dunk case of immigration crimes committed by the Trump Golf Club(felonies).

Federal Immigration and Nationality Act(INA) Section 274(a)(1)(A)

This bombshell revelation comes against the backdrop of a partial government shutdown (aka #TrumpShutdown) caused by political wrangling between Democrats and Republicans over whether or not to fund Trump’s proposed border wall, which according to Trump will keep America safe from criminal immigrants attempting to enter the United States illegally. The Trump administration has gone to great lengths to vilify immigrants, especially those coming in through our southern border as dangerous criminals who come here to commit crimes and take jobs away from Americans, and his proposed border wall is intended as a symbol to his political base that he is taking action on illegal immigration–a meaningless political ploy.

Well if it turns out that the same Trump who vilifies illegal/undocumented immigrants publicly to appease his racist and xenophobic political base is also violating immigration laws to keep them working at his golf clubs, possibly paying them lower than median wages, then it is high time Democrats and the mainstream media confronted him about his entire immigration stance. If immigrants who come to the U.S. illegally are so dangerous that Trump has forced a partial government shutdown to force funding for his border wall, then he should explain why his golf club is so desperate for their labour that it violates immigration laws to keep them employed.

The bombshell article also raises the very troubling prospect that Trump’s Golf Club subjected immigrants in its employ to abuse(unspecified) and racial harassment.

Excerpt from NY Daily News 12/29/2018

Bottom line, most people know that Trump’s hard line immigration stance is disingenuous and only meant to appease his political base which he has figured out hates non-white immigrants. Where, as here, we have a story that perfectly captures Trump’s immigration hypocrisy, Democrats must capitalize on it. Simply put, this is not just a case of Trump’s sickening hypocrisy on immigration, it is yet another example of possible criminal conduct by him and his businesses which must be fully investigated.
