Concerned about the alleged “mistreatment” of Border Patrol and other Homeland Security employees who are trying to enforce immigration law, Republican senators want to know how may DHS employees have been disciplined over the last six years for refusing to comply with the Obama administration’s “prosecutorial discretion” policy. “We write regarding potential retaliation against Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel for upholding their oaths of office and faithfully discharging the duties of the offices in which they serve,” eight Republicans said in a March 31 letter sent to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson.
The Republicans pointed to President Obama’s Feb. 25 remarks in an MSNBC/Telemundo interview, in which the president said: “There may be individual (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials or Border Patrol who aren’t paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of the Department of Homeland Security, because he’s been very clear about what our priorities should be….If somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy there are going to be consequences to it.” The Republicans say not only is Obama ignoring the plain language of the law by deferring deportation for millions of illegal immigrants, but he also seems to be threatening DHS personnel — including ICE officals and Border Patrol agents who are trying to perform their duties.
“Indeed, we are aware of multiple allegations of targeting and retaliation against DHS personnel who refuse to comply with this Administration’s willful disregard of our immigration laws,” the senators wrote. The senators specifically want to know how many DHS employees have been disciplined over the last six years, including through negative annual performance reviews, for refusing to comply with with department’s lenient immigration policies.
They also want to know how many lawsuits or complaints DHS employees have filed over the last six years relating to the prosecutorial discretion policy; the “general nature” of each lawsuit or complaint; and the ultimate outcome. The senators asked DHS to provide any guidance, written or oral, that it has given to DHS employees explaining how they will be disciplined for refusing to comply with the “administratively-created enforcement priorities.”
And finally, the letter asks DHS to “describe the authority upon which your Department will rely to penalize Department personnel for their failure to comply with
an unlawful and unconstitutional order.”
The letter is signed by Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), chairman of the immigration subcommittee; along with Sens. David Vitter (La.), David Perdue (Ga.), Charles Grassley (Iowa), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Tom Tillis (N.C.).
‘Footprints in the sand’
In testimony before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on March 17, Chris Cabrera, a Border Patrol Agent in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, explained that a key metric in determining border security is the number of “got-aways.” And he said those numbers are being minimized. “If we know from footprints or video surveillance that 20 individuals crossed the border, we ultimately catch 10, obviously we know that we have 10 that got away. Now, when I first joined the Border Patrol, if I saw 20 sets of footprints in the sand, there was no argument. We were looking for 20 individuals.
But today, Cabrera said he must wait for a supervisor to “verify” the number of footprints. “Agents who repeatedly report groups larger than 20 face retribution,” Cabrera said. “Management will either take them out of the field and assign them to processing detainees at the station or assign them to a fixed position in low volume areas as punishment. Needless to say, agents got the message and now stay below this 20 person threshold, no matter the actual size of the group.” In their letter, the Republican senators asked DHS Secretary Johnson to submit the information they requested by the close of business on April 13.

An illegal alien from El Salvador who has been stealing the identities of Americans for 30 years got a low, low 29-month sentence last week.
The illegal got caught after the American whose identity was stolen complained to Social Security that he wasn’t able to get his rightful benefits.
“Alegria-Garcia, a citizen of El Salvador, has been in the United States illegally since the early 1980s,” says a statement published by the Office of Inspector General of the Social Security Administration.
The OIG statement was headlined: “Illegal Alien Sentenced to 29 Months in Prison for Identity Theft.”
“United States Court Judge Sharon L. Gleason sentenced Alegria-Garcia to the five months imprisonment he has already served on the Social Security number and false citizenship charges, and also imposed a mandatory two-year consecutive term for aggravated identity theft,” said the statement.
“In imposing the sentence, Judge Gleason mentioned the impact on the victim, as well as the defendant’s long criminal record spanning more than 30 years,” said the statement. “The victim, a U.S. national living in New York, stated that he found it difficult to obtain the benefits he was entitled to through Social Security because government records indicated that he was working in Alaska. In fact, Alegria-Garcia was working in Alaska, having stolen the victim’s identity.”
Although Alegria-Garcia had been “in the United States illegally since the early 1980s,” according to the statement published by the Social Security Administration OIG, he was arrested in late 2014, according to a press release put out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Who bets that once this illegal’s sentence is up he’ll be released right back into the US instead of deproted to El Salvador where he belongs?
It’s all by intentional design. The black man finally has the whip-hand over whitey and his plan is to flood your country with millions upon millions of 3rd world minorities who breed like cockroaches, and whom, in a few short years, will become the new majority in America. It’s nothing more nor less than intentional white genocide.
