From January through August of 2014, nationwide, local sanctuaries released more than 8,000 criminal aliens that ICE was seeking to deport. More than 1,800 went on to commit new crimes within that eight-month period. ICE has re-apprehended only about 30 percent; the rest are still at large.

Another Georgia state Senator sends letters to both U.S. Senators urging an end to consideration of Dax Lopez for federal judge – we agree and thank Senator Josh McKoon

Posted by D.A. King at 11:45 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

Below is the text of a letter sent to us from Georgia state Senator Josh McKoon to both of our U.S. Senators:

 

Dear Senators Isakson and Perdue:

I am writing you today to respectfully request that you withhold your approval of the nomination of Judge Dax Lopez so that it may not advance to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

President Obama nominated a qualified jurist last year who was not given the opportunity to have his nomination advanced to the full Senate for consideration.

Judge Lopez has served for the last 11 years on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), an organization which has routinely advanced arguments to avoid or flout existing federal and state law and has opposed strongly common sense legislation to aid in the enforcement of immigration law at the state and local level.

Service on the Board of GALEO arguably runs afoul of Canon 5 of the Georgia Code of Judicial Conduct which states in pertinent part that:

Judges Shall Regulate Their Extra-Judicial Activities to Minimize the Risk of Conflict with Their Judicial Duties…B. Civic and Charitable Activities. Judges may not participate in civic and charitable activities that reflect adversely upon their impartiality or interfere with the performance of their judicial duties. Judges may serve as officers, directors, trustees, or non-legal advisors of educational, religious, charitable, fraternal, or civic organizations not conducted for the economic or political advantage of their members, subject to the following limitations: (1) Judges shall not serve if it is likely that the organization will be engaged in proceedings that would ordinarily come before them or will be regularly engaged in adversary proceedings in any court. Commentary: The changing nature of some organizations and of their relationship to the law makes it necessary for judges regularly to re-examine the activities of each organization with which they are affiliated to determine if it is proper for them to continue their relationship with it. For example, in many jurisdictions charitable hospitals are now more frequently in court than in the past. Similarly, the boards of some legal aid organizations now make policy decisions that may have political significance or imply commitment to causes that may come before the courts for adjudication.

GALEO has filed amicus briefs in cases involving immigration law and policy. See Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights et al v. Governor Nathan Deal, et al (U.S. District Court for Northern District of Georgia, Case No. 1:11-cv-1804-TWT) and State of Texas et al v. United States of America et al (United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, Appeal No. 15-40238). The willingness to risk violation of Canon 5 by continuing to serve on the Board of Directors of GALEO should raise serious questions about the propriety of moving forward with confirmation proceedings.

As I have been drafting this letter to you, I have become aware of Judge Lopez’s resignation from the GALEO Board of Directors. That does not change the fact that he served for 11 years, including after GALEO inserted itself into at least two federal actions involving immigration issues that he would undoubtedly be confronted with in his role as a Federal District Court Judge. For these reasons, I respectfully request that you withhold support for this nomination.

Thank you for your diligent service to our State.

Best Regards,

Joshua R. McKoon

The Pope is coming, the Pope is coming! and he is going to talk about immigration! From Fox News Latino

Fox News Latino

Pope expected to champion cause of immigrants during U.S. visit
By Elizabeth Llorente

Published September 01, 2015

“We all welcome a visit from the pontiff, but unless he urges us to actually begin enforcing our laws and protecting our own poor and unemployed, I don’t think his remarks on the American immigration will have much lasting impact,” said D.A. King, a Georgia activist who favors strict immigration policies. “Having been to the Vatican and being familiar with the long list of enforced rules for even visiting there, I hope Pope Francis will steer clear of any proclamations that our very liberal immigration laws, even if they are not enforced, are somehow evil or mean-spirited.”

The push for comprehensive immigration reform may get a boost from divine intervention.

Pope Francis is scheduled to meet with Latinos and immigrants, formally and informally, during his visit to Washington D.C., New York City and Philadelphia in September and immigration will be the topic of a speech he will give outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

Advocates of more lenient immigration laws hope the pontiff appeals to the United States to allow a path to legal status for the millions living here illegally.

“I would hope that he says that we must approach immigration in a humane way,” said Sergio Garcia, a California man who obtained his green card this year, after getting his law license last year following a five-year legal and political battle that included opposition from the Obama administration.

Garcia told Fox News Latino that attempting to secure the border as a means to fix immigration is an approach that has failed time and time again.

“As much as I would hope his words would make a difference at the government level I’m not that optimistic,” he said. “But I’m sure it would encourage a few people to rethink the way they see immigrant and immigration especially since Jesus was an immigrant himself.”

Garcia received his law license after Gov. Jerry Brown signed a specially crafted bill passed by the Legislature to let him practice law.

Those who prefer strict immigration officials are leery about how the pope might frame the issue of the undocumented.

“We all welcome a visit from the pontiff, but unless he urges us to actually begin enforcing our laws and protecting our own poor and unemployed, I don’t think his remarks on the American immigration will have much lasting impact,” said D.A. King, a Georgia activist who favors strict immigration policies. “Having been to the Vatican and being familiar with the long list of enforced rules for even visiting there, I hope Pope Francis will steer clear of any proclamations that our very liberal immigration laws, even if they are not enforced, are somehow evil or mean-spirited.”

Lawmakers are fairly certain the pope will make his views on immigration known in no uncertain terms.

“He’s been clear on our failure to respond appropriately to immigrants and refugees,” Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. was quoted as saying in Roll Call. “I don’t think anyone will have any doubt on where the church stands on immigration after the pope visits the United States.”

McGovern is one of nearly 170 Catholics in Congress.

The pope, who’s drawn worldwide attention for his expressions of concern and compassion for the most vulnerable, was vocal about last year’s surge of unaccompanied Central American children who approached the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

The pope called the surge a humanitarian crisis, and urged the governments of the United States as well as Central America to protect the children and address the conditions – poverty and gang violence – that were forcing many of them to flee.

“I must call attention to the tens of thousands of children who migrate alone, unaccompanied, to escape poverty and violence,” Francis said in a letter that was read at a migration conference last year. He noted that they flee “in extreme conditions, in a hopeful search that most of the time is in vain.”

The pope has addressed the plight of the displaced around the world.

Shortly after becoming pope, he traveled to a tiny Italian island, Lampedusa, that has attracted migrants from Africa and the Middle East, many of whom have died trying to make the trip there.

“Many people obligated to migrate suffer and frequently die tragically,” Francis wrote in the migration conference letter. “Many of their rights are violated, they are forced to leave their families and unfortunately continue being the object of racist and xenophobic attitudes.”

McGovern expressed hope that the pope’s visit would rekindle a political will in Washington D.C. to pass a comprehensive immigration reform package that would include a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants.

“It may move some, it may not move others,” McGovern was quoted as saying in Roll Call. “But I hope it makes those who have been obstructionist feel uncomfortable.”

Finally, some think that while liberals may find reinforcement of their views from the pope’s remarks on immigration, the pontiff may say a few things more in line with conservatives when it comes to the once-again headline-grabbing issue of abortion.

“The utility of his comments to the Democrats will be limited by the fact that in the same address to Congress he’s almost certain to also comment on (or allude to) the videos showing Planned Parenthood harvesting and selling the organs of murdered babies,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that favors strict immigration measures, “maybe even tying the welcoming of ever-more immigrants to the welcoming of unborn babies. This could make his comments on both topics useless to political crusaders on both sides of the aisle.”

Most immigrant households are on welfare…(solution? MORE IMMIGRATION!)

September 2, 2015

A new report by my colleague Steven Camarota finds that most immigrant households use welfare. That immigrants receive taxpayer-funded benefits at higher rates than the native-born isn’t a new finding. But previous research (including by CIS) has never found such a high rate. The reason is that Camarota used a different Census Bureau data source, the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), that is more difficult to use but, as its name suggests, provides the most comprehensive view of welfare use (a.k.a “program participation”). The study shows that 51 percent of immigrant-headed households use at least one welfare program, as opposed to 30 percent for households headed by the native-born. The study examined Medicaid, cash assistance, food aid, and housing programs. The graph below shows overall welfare use for immigrant and native households…

Rep. Price talks Iran deal, immigration
Ricky Leroux

ROSWELL — With Congress in its August recess, U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Roswell, sat down for an interview at his district office on Friday to discuss immigration, the Iran deal, federal spending and the Republican presidential primary.

Price, chairman of the House Budget Committee, represents much of northeast Cobb.

Q: It’s been suggested that one of the things that the country could do is to deport anyone who has entered the country illegally, people who have overstayed their visas and so on. As the budget chairman, do you think that is something that’s financially feasible to even look at?

A: Well, my position on immigration has been the same throughout my entire public career, and that is that the nation has lost complete trust in the federal government to fulfill the responsibility of keeping this country safe from an immigration standpoint.

It’s important that everybody know and understand that we are the most generous country on the face of the Earth when it comes to legal immigration. About a million individuals come to our shores legally every single year. No other nation even comes close to that. … However, in 1986, the federal government, through the Congress and the administration at that time, agreed that there was a problem with folks who were here illegally and that the problem needed to be addressed. And the way that they said it ought to be addressed is to provide a path to citizenship for those approximately 3 million folks who were here illegally at that time to end that problem and to control and secure the border and entry into the United States so that we never had this problem again.

What was not fulfilled after that agreement was the controlling and securing of entry into the United States and of the border. So the American people are rightly frustrated and angry about what their federal government has done, which tells me that the way to regain that trust is to do what we said we were going to do in 1986, nearly 30 years ago, and control and secure the border and entry into the United States. And once you do that, which is, I think, relatively easy from a logistics standpoint and I think relatively inexpensive if it’s done in a smart way, once you do that and have the political will behind it to continue that, then I think the conversation about what to do about the rest of the immigration problem becomes much more sober, realistic and compassionate.

Q: I couldn’t help but notice that you didn’t answer the question. Do you think that deporting these reportedly 12 million is the right thing to do?

A: That wasn’t your question. Your question was, “As budget chair, is it affordable?” And I did answer that question, which was I think it’s relatively inexpensive to do that.

Q: Well, to control the border. Not necessarily to do a mass deportation.

A: That wasn’t your question. If that’s your question, I’ll answer that question.

Q: OK, is it financially feasible to deport up to 12 million people?

A: Well, I suspect you could do that from a financial standpoint, but the question is whether that’s the right thing to do. And my response to that is you’ve got to control and secure the border. If, for example, the federal government said, this administration said, “Everybody who’s here illegally must go home now,” and then brought that about, it wouldn’t make any difference until you control and secure the border. You’ve got to control and secure the border first. This is a stepwise process. Unless you control and secure the border, we can do anything we want and it doesn’t make any difference at all because the border is porous. You’ve got to solve this — that’s what frustrates people so much is that Washington gets hung up on things that are actually not the real problem. The real focus and the problem right now, one, is the trust that the American people don’t have in their federal government, and two is that the government hasn’t done what they said they were going to do: controlling entry to the United States. So, once we do that, again, I think the conversation gets much more reasonable and much more sobering.

Q: Would you support a pathway to citizenship of some kind?

A: I think that until the border is controlled and secured, then all those questions are moot because it doesn’t make any difference what you do.

Q: What are your thoughts on the Iran deal?…

No blanket birthright citizenship – King letter to the editor published in Sunday’s AJC – no, really!

Posted by D.A. King at 11:11 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  

No blanket birthright citizenship

It’s amusing to hear the concrete assurance from mass immigration advocates howling that “everyone born on American soil is an American citizen, and that settles it!” — and then, in the next breath, admit that we don’t grant that jackpot status to children of diplomats or any invading enemy. Such was the entertainment in immigration lawyer Arturo Corso’s column (“Leave kids’ citizenship alone,” Opinion, Aug. 27). Michigan’s Sen. Jacob Howard, author of the citizenship clause in the 14th Amendment, made the intent brilliantly clear: “This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include all other classes of persons.”

The 14th amendment was created to protect American blacks, before the U.S. had many laws regulating immigration. There were no illegal aliens for mid-19th-century lawmakers to consider. The intent was not to create an ever-growing pool of anchor babies to encourage more illegal immigration and more Democrat voters.

Reminder: When in congress, current Georgia governor Nathan Deal took the same position as is Donald Trump on birthright citizenship.
