IMMIGRANTS FOUND IN WASHING MACHINE AND CARDBOARD BOX

Capture

Five illegals captured at the border

Border Patrol agents were able to rescue unauthorized immigrants who were inside a cardboard box and a washing machine.

Five immigrants, who were present in the US illegally, were being transported up north in a U-Haul.

They were rescued from the back of a U-Haul on Friday, Oct. 17 around 8:00 in the evening, Border Patrol said.

The U-Haul was stopped at the checkpoint in Falfurrias when agents referred the driver to secondary inspection after their K-9 alerted them.

The U-Haul was then searched and four immigrants were found inside a cardboard box, and another one was located inside a washing machine.

Border Patrol agents offered the immigrants medical attention, which they declined

A man driving the U-Haul and the woman passenger were taken into custody.

Homeland Security Investigations is currently investigating the case.

EXCLUSIVE: OBAMA ADMINISTRATION QUIETLY PREPARES ‘SURGE’ OF MILLIONS OF NEW IMMIGRANT IDS

Capture

Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun.

Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.”
The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year. In the “surge,” scenario in 2016, the agency would need an additional five million cards – more than double the baseline annual amount for a total of 9 million.
“The guaranteed minimum for each ordering period is 4,000,000 cards. The estimated maximum for the entire contract is 34,000,000 cards,” the document says.
The agency is buying the materials need to construct both Permanent Residency Cards (PRC), commonly known as green cards, as well as Employment Authorization Documentation (EAD) cards which have been used to implement President Obama’s “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program. The RFP does not specify how many of each type of card would be issued.
Jessica Vaughan, an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies and former State Department official, said the document suggests a new program of remarkable breadth.
The RFP “seems to indicate that the president is contemplating an enormous executive action that is even more expansive than the plan that Congress rejected in the ‘Gang of Eight’ bill,” Vaughan said.
Last year, Vaughan reviewed the Gang of Eight’s provisions to estimate that it would have roughly doubled legal immigration. In the “surge” scenario of this RFP, even the relatively high four million cards per year would be more than doubled, meaning that even on its own terms, the agency is preparing for a huge uptick of 125 percent its normal annual output.
It’s not unheard of for federal agencies to plan for contingencies, but the request specifically explains that the surge is related to potential changes in immigration policy.
“The Contractor shall demonstrate the capability to support potential ‘surge’ in PRC and EAD card demand for up to 9M cards during the initial period of performance to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements,” the document says.
A year ago, such a plan might have been attributed to a forthcoming immigration bill. Now, following the summer’s border crisis, the chances of such a new law are extremely low, giving additional credence to the possibility the move is in preparation for an executive amnesty by Obama.
Even four million combined green cards and EADs is a significant number, let alone the “surge” contemplated by USCIS. For instance, in the first two years after Obama unilaterally enacted DACA, about 600,000 people were approved by USCIS under the program. Statistics provided by USCIS on its website show that the entire agency had processed 862,000 total EADs in 2014 as of June.
Vaughan said EADs are increasingly coming under scrutiny as a tool used by the Obama administration to provide legalization for groups of illegal aliens short of full green card status.
In addition to providing government approval to work for illegal aliens, EADs also cost significantly less in fees to acquire, about $450 compared to more than $1000. In many states, EADs give aliens rights to social services and the ability to obtain drivers’ licenses.
Vaughan noted there are currently about 4.5 million individuals waiting for approval for the green cards having followed immigration law and obtained sponsorships from relatives in the U.S. or otherwise, less than the number of id cards contemplated by the USCIS “surge.”
USCIS officials did not provide additional information about the RFP by press time.

Nearly 900,000 Illegal Aliens with Removal Orders Are Still in U.S. – 167,000 Are Convicted Criminals

INVASION U.S.A.

(CNS News) – Nearly 900,000 illegal aliens who have received a final order of removal are still in the United States – and about 167,000 of these are convicted criminals who were released by ICE and are currently at large, a new study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows.

According to the study, 883,000 total illegal aliens are legally required to leave the U.S, but are still here:

“As of the end of the 2014 fiscal year, there were approximately 167,000 convicted criminal aliens at large in the United States (released by ICE) who have been ordered removed and exhausted all appeals. In addition, there were approximately 716,000 deportable non-criminal aliens at large who have been ordered removed and exhausted all appeals.”
FAX BLAST SPECIAL: NO AMNESTY for Illegals!

According to U.S. Immigrations and Customs (ICE) officials who spoke off the record with CIS, ICE officers are instructed to release or take a pass on illegal aliens whose crimes are designated as “minor” or who have family members in the United States. The result, the report says, is “that only a fraction of deportable aliens that ICE identifies actually will be processed for deportation.”

And, only about half (53%) of criminal illegal aliens encountered by ICE agents were actually deported, the report finds:

“It is important to note that, similarly, only a fraction of those aliens labeled as a criminal threat at the time of encounter were selected for deportation by ICE in 2014. According to the weekly ICE metrics report cited above, as of September 20, 2014, ICE officers had reported 170,125 encounters with aliens deemed a criminal threat. Meanwhile, only 90,500 criminal aliens were issued charging documents, indicating a startlingly large number – potentially nearly 80,000 – of illegal aliens with criminal histories who were able to escape deportation proceedings in 2014, even after being encountered by an ICE officer.”
The report also finds that less than two percent of aliens who have been given a final order of removal, but have yet to leave the country, are in ICE custody:

“ICE’s weekly metrics report includes information on the number of aliens who have been issued a final order of removal, but who remain in the country. As of September 20, 2014, the total number of such aliens was 897,572. Of these, less than 2 percent (14,629) were detained in ICE custody. Yet 174,258 of these post-final-order deportable aliens were convicted criminals. Only about 4 percent (7,477) of the convicted criminal post-final-order aliens were detained in ICE custody.”

ILLEGALS WEARING SURGICAL MASKS IN BORDER PATROL CUSTODY SPARK EBOLA CONCERNS

“Unrelated to Ebola,” agency claims

Residents of South Texas were on edge after a photo surfaced showing several illegal immigrants wearing face masks while in Border Patrol custody.

The photo, snapped and sent in to ABC affiliate KRGV by an anonymous viewer, shows several illegals standing and sitting outside of what appears to be the Anzalduas International Bridge, along the US-Mexico border.

The persons in the photo, about eight in total, appear to be wearing surgical masks and latex rubber gloves, leading to questions about whether the men were infected with communicable diseases.

Customs and Border Protection did not give details on the detainees, other than to say that the men did not have the deadly Ebola virus.

“No case or individual processed by CBP at Hidalgo-Pharr-Anzalduas Port of Entry on Oct. 13 was related to Ebola,” CBP responded in a statement.

CBP also said that it has ramped up health precautions at all US ports of entry and that it is working alongside the CDC to “develop policies, procedures and protocols to identify travelers that are known by US public health officials to have a communicable disease and to handle in a manner that minimizes risk to the public…”

From CBP’s statement to KRGV:

“When a traveler or alien is identified with a possible communicable disease or identified from information that is received from the CDC, CBP personnel will take the appropriate safety measures by donning personal protective equipment (PPE), to include gloves and surgical masks, which are readily available for use in the course of their duties. CBP personnel receive training in illness recognition, but if they identify an individual believed to be infected, CBP will contact CDC along with local public health authorities to help with further medical evaluation.”
Rather than halt connecting flights from Ebola-afflicted West African regions, the US Border Patrol has also stepped up health precautions at at least five major airports throughout the country, including Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Dulles International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

While the agency was able to tamp down Ebola concerns, the fact that no specific explanation has emerged regarding why the illegal immigrants photographed were wearing protective gear will likely only lead to further public consternation.
