President Barack Obama’s lax immigration policies are inviting another massive jihad attack similar to the 9/11 atrocity, says Kenneth Palinkas, president of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employees’ union.

Obama’s deputies are “lessening the vetting of each and every alien who applies for permanent residency or citizenship in the U.S.,” Palinkas said in a statement Tuesday.

“By not scrutinizing each and every applicant to the fullest extent possible to ensure America’s security, we invite an even more catastrophic event than what occurred on 09/11/2001,” he said.

Obama’s rollback of security checks means that “it is more than likely that any attack from terrorists will come from within the borders of the U.S., and it is further likely that ISIS or Al Qaeda would try to launch these attacks by obtaining a visa or working with elements already here on visas,” he said.

Numerous legal immigrants have launched, or tried to launch, jihad attacks in the United States.

In April 2013, for example, two ethnic Chechen Muslim refugees detonated bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three victims. They also killed a cop as they fled.

This month, three more migrants were arrested in Brooklyn for planning jihad attacks in the United States.

“Our current immigration system leaves us vulnerable to terrorist threats and terrorism in general by providing entry avenues for people sworn to destroy America… We must remain diligent and not continue lessening our guard against extremists who seek to destroy this nation,” Palinkas said.

“We must not govern based on politically correct clichés about relaxed immigration that only serve to weaken the country.”

The statement was released shortly before Sen. Jeff Sessions held his first hearing on immigration issues at the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest on Tuesday.

Sessions is a major advocate for reduced immigration, and was recently bumped from the top slot in the Senate’s budget committee.

The hearing is about the administration’s management of the USCIS agency.

NEXT EXECUTIVE ACTION? OBAMA ‘VERY INTERESTED’ IN UNILATERAL TAX HIKE…

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Sanders sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Friday identifying a number of executive actions he believes the IRS could take, without any input from Congress, that would close loopholes currently used by corporations. In the past, IRS lawyers have been hesitant to use executive actions to raise significant amounts of revenue, but that same calculation has change in other federal agencies since Obama became president.

Obama’s preferred option would be for Congress to pass a corporate tax hike that would fund liberal infrastructure projects like mass transit. But if Congress fails to do as Obama wishes, just as Congress has failed to pass the immigration reforms that Obama prefers, Obama could take actions unilaterally instead. This past November, for example, Obama gave work permits, Social Security Numbers, and drivers licenses to approximately 4 million illegal immigrants.

Those immigration actions, according to the Congressional Budget Office, will raise federal deficits by $8.8 billion over the next ten years.

BOEHNER SUBMITS TO OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY

House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) announced that the House will vote on a clean Department of Homeland Security funding bill, which marks the conclusion of the Republican attempt to block funding for President Obama’s executive amnesty orders. Boehner told the Republican conference that the bill will get a vote on Tuesday. “He said Pelosi could [force a vote] but he hoped it would be done by a GOP appropriator,” a Republican congressman in the meeting tells National Review Online.  The GOP lawmaker is referring to a little-known rule, known as Rule 22, that allows any House member to force a vote on a bill if the Senate refuses to create a conference committee. Senate Democrats filibustered the creation of a conference committee on Monday evening, thwarting the process by which the House and Senate might have ironed out the differences between the DHS appropriations bills passed by the two chambers. The original House bill blocked funding for the implementation of Obama’s 2012 and 2014 executive orders on immigration. The Senate bill did not block funding for the president’s amnesty. In Tuesday morning’s conference meeting, House majority leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) reiterated his belief that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) should have used the nuclear option to eliminate the filibuster in response to the Democratic votes to block debate on the House-passed DHS bill.

IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 6.28.15 PM

By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times – Monday, March 2, 2015

The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that agency lawyers have concluded getting a Social Security number triggers the ability to go back and ask for previous refunds.

President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could grant Social Security numbers to as many as 4 million illegal immigrants, making many of them eligible for tax refunds under the Earned Income Tax Credit even for years when they cheated on their taxes, working off the books and refusing to file tax returns.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the EITC is claimed,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen wrote in his letter to Sen. Charles E. Grassley on Wednesday.

The IRS’s chief lawyer had reached that conclusion in 2000, and the agency has newly confirmed it, Mr. Koskinen said.

Mr. Grassley said that made a mockery of the law, and said he’ll try to write a bill specifically prohibiting it.

“The tax code shouldn’t reward those who broke our immigration laws,” the Iowa Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement.

The tax issue has become one of several flash points over Mr. Obama’s deportation amnesty, which grants tentative legal status, Social Security numbers and work permits to illegal immigrants who qualify. The newly legalized workers would also likely be eligible for driver’s licenses, and could even be more attractive than native-born workers to some employers trying to figure out ways to save money under Obamacare mandates.

Mr. Koskinen has previously said that illegal immigrants must be able to prove they worked off-the-books in order to claim the EITC, and it’s unclear how many of the population Mr. Obama is aiming to cover would be able to offer such proof.

The three-year time frame is part of general tax law, allowing anyone who didn’t file to go back and claim a refund for up to three previous year’s worth of taxes.

But the IRS lawyer’s ruling creates an odd circumstance where illegal immigrants who cheated by not paying taxes before can see if they would benefit from refunds. If they do benefit, they could file, but if they don’t benefit they could continue to avoid taxes for those years.

Mr. Obama’s new amnesty program does not require payment of back-taxes.

This arrogant prince thinks he can do anything he wants just by his say-so. No act of Congress needed.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen.

So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

The unlawfulness and arrogance of this man is incredible.

Who needs the Constitution, eh?

JEWS IN AMERICA HAVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED BLACKS. NOW LOOK HOW THEY ARE PAYING BACK THAT SUPPORT: Look What BLACK DEMOCRATS have in store for Netanyahu!

Democrats suck. Black Democrats REALLY suck. Remember when Democrats booed God and Israel at the DNC in 2012? That was a sickening display but what do you expect from a bunch of brain dead LIBERALS?

Now the Black Caucus Democrats are planning to disrupt Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to congress where he is trying to open the eyes of the world to the EXTREME threat that IRAN poses. Will they do the ‘HAND’S UP, DON’T SHOOT’ garbage or will they come stare and yell about slavery while he sits down to eat? God only knows…

After extensive communications with Obama the black’s plan on doing a protest during Mr. Netanyahu’s speech to the Senate by walking out while he speaks. You know what? Get the hell out then- we don’t need you Obama kissing a$$es there anyways! It’s not like you will back anything but ILLEGAL ALIENS and FOOD STAMPS for the poor blacks that are being discriminated against by our WHITE PRIVILEGED country! Oh you have it so bad! Let me break out the world’s smallest violin.

Take a hike- I’m sick of your whining.

But, there are tons of blacks that disagree with all the stupid crap that these agitators are doing including a group of Conservative black ministers that support M. Netanyahu.

Urban Cure reports:

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will address a joint session of congress on March 3rd, and in a political move, leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus are planning to skip the speech in protest of Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to Netanyahu to do so. While the Congressional Black Caucus claims it has “consistently been the voice for people of color,” it seems this brazenly political move couldn’t be further from the voice of black Christians in America.

The Center for Urban Renewal and Education and leaders of the black Christian community will come together to voice their support for Israel and welcome Prime Minister Netanyahu as he addresses Congress. A press conference will be held at the National Press Club on Thursday, February 26, 2015 to address these concerns.

WHO: Star Parker, Founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, Black Ministers from Across the Country
WHAT: Press Conference
WHERE: National Press Club, Zenger Room, 529 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20045
WHEN: Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 10:00 AM ET

“Israel has had to fight for survival in the Middle East every single day since its founding,” said Star Parker, Founder & President of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education. “The same forces that continue to threaten Israel today threaten America and the very Judeo-Christian values which link our nations. These biblical values defined the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King was an outspoken supporter of Israel. Jews were major supporters and partners in the Civil Rights movement since the founding of the NAACP. The Congressional Black Caucus undermines America, Israel, and our common Judeo-Christian heritage by turning their backs on the Israeli Prime Minister in a time of danger. We must hear the Prime Minister and show him black Christians, and all Americans, welcome him.”

Judge Rules Deported Illegal Aliens Can Return To The U.S.

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 6.13.35 PM

By Brian Anderson, March 1, 2015.

When illegal aliens are caught by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, they are given a couple of options. They can pursue legal action in an effort to stay or they can simply leave in what is known as “self deportation.” A US District judge just ruled that those who chose to leave may not have understood what they were doing and ordered that they be allowed to return to the U.S.

This completely insane ruling could allow thousands of illegal aliens to re-enter America and seek permanent resident status. It comes from a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (surprise) that basically said ICE officials were tricking illegal aliens into self-deporting. ICE agreed to a settlement last year to stop the practice, but that wasn’t good enough. The ACLU wanted anyone who left on their own accord to be allowed to come back and they got it.

U.S. District Judge John Kronstadt in Los Angeles on Thursday approved the ACLU’s request to broaden the class of plaintiffs to include immigrants improperly expelled between June 2009 and August 2014, said Anna Castro, a spokeswoman for the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties.

Which means:

The judge ruled that the class of immigrants who could return was comprised of those with reasonable grounds to believe they might have been allowed to stay in the United States if they had gone before a federal immigration judge.

As a result, hundreds and possibly thousands of immigrants expelled to Mexico from Southern California are eligible to return and present their case in immigration court for legal U.S. residency, Castro said.

Apparently some of the confusion on the part of the illegal immigrants was that they didn’t understand that by self-deporting they would be banned from legally entering the United States for ten years. They were breaking the law to begin with but thought that by leaving they could just turn around and come back in? Makes perfect sense to me.

ICE and DHS didn’t put up much of a fight, no doubt getting a memo from President

Obama saying: viva illegals!

The Department of Homeland Security has said U.S. agencies agreed to a settlement with the ACLU so they could “supplement their existing procedures to ensure foreign nationals fully comprehend the potential consequences of returning voluntarily to Mexico.”

Let’s try to understand this: there is a group of people who were breaking the law. Rather than face justice, they voluntarily left. Now, by a judge’s order, they are being allowed to return to America to resume their illegal activity.

This would be like someone stealing a car, returning it to the owner, and then a judge decides that the car thief was entitled to possession of the stolen automobile because he didn’t understand that stealing was wrong.

Obama is right about one thing: our immigration system is broken, though not in the way he thinks it is. We can do next to nothing to stop illegal aliens from entering our country. We can do next to nothing to force illegal aliens to leave our country. Now, even when some of them do leave, they get invited back. A country without borders is not a country at all.
