Canada is for Anglo, Celtic, Franco populations. Halt illegal and legal immigration or you wont exist in 30 years.

You’re fuckin right we do. Trudeaus government is a disgrace to all Canadians, left or right. Most people I know didn’t care who got elected. Not the case anymore.

Yes we do. Trudeau, being magnanimous with other peoples money is no recommendation. Our health system is falling apart and you and your globalist butt buddy soros just keep slamming them in. Don’t be surprised when Canadians start slamming back…bitch.

No action will be done. Trudeau is an idiot and none of this matters to him. He looks at it as more votes for the Libtards.
Tim Mac

That 36% and 37% is too high. Those dummies are immigrants and students. They need to educated as to what this all means. Those that feel they need to escape the USA are not the kind of people we want in Canada. My guess is that 100% of them will be a drain on Canada and no benefit whatsoever.

Mother of a girl murdered by an illegal immigrant shares her story

The dems care more about the illegals than the American people… This is just insane, no laws in america
Amy Langera

Why aren’t the other MSM not covering this story as Fox News? Where is Madonna? Where are all the celebrities that think their voice has an impact? Where are the feminists???? Where are the women who organised and participated in the without women’s day?
Tommy DeVito

Why is a 18 yr old illegal savage in a 9th grade class to begin with? This falls on the school in my opinion. NOT ALL CULTURES ARE MEANT TO MIX. Diversity is not and has never been a strength of any nation.

We need to save America. We need to kick out every single illegal immigrants out of here. Be they Muslim, Mexican, or any other. We cannot let these illegals in here anymore, they are a constant threat to all Americans.

Democrats and the MSM will never talk about this story because illegals are their voter base. Cut funding to the Arts and all the non-essential bullshit we tax payers pay for and hire more ICE agents. Period!

Zero outcry by libtrash, not a peep when this happens. Hope the parents voted Hilldog. Retribution at its finest.

Democrats are a criminal organisation. That is why they support criminals and not the innocent victims of crime.

Immigration provision cut from Obamacare rollback, angering conservatives

Provision to crack down on illegals deleted…

Some conservatives in Washington were fuming on Tuesday after an Obamacare rollback bill was tweaked by Republican leaders to delete a provision meant to crack down on illegal immigrants getting federal healthcare insurance coverage.

The development posed another problem for Republican leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives and President Donald Trump, who are trying to win congressional approval of the wider bill, the first big legislative test for Trump since taking office.

The provision would have allowed the Treasury Department to access data at the Department of Homeland Security to verify that healthcare tax credits went only to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents, not to illegal immigrants.

In a largely procedural move, it was dropped from the bill after the Senate Parliamentarian determined that the Senate Finance Committee, which handles tax credits under the bill, does not have purview over the Department of Homeland Security.

Republican Representative Lou Barletta issued a statement on Monday evening, after the change was made, saying he could no longer support the bill, citing the obscure provision.

“I am concerned that the bill lacks sufficient safeguards for verifying whether or not an individual applying for health care tax credits is lawfully in this country and eligible to receive them,” said the Pennsylvania lawmaker.

The provision had been a key issue for conservative groups the Trump administration is trying to win over in its efforts to pass the bill known as the American Health Care Act, Trump’s plan to repeal and partly replace Obamacare.

Some conservatives have criticized the bill since Republican House leadership unveiled it earlier this month, dubbing it “Obamacare Lite” because they say it falls short in repealing Democratic former President Barack Obama’s 2010 healthcare law.

Republican leaders recrafted the bill on Monday in hopes of satisfying conservative and moderate critics. Trump visited Capitol Hill Tuesday seeking to win more support for the bill.

Lauren Aronson, spokeswoman for the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, said the bill keeps the underlying policies of Obamacare that specify only U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents are eligible for the tax credits. The bill was expected to go before the full House for a vote on Thursday.

DHS releases list of police departments defying immigration orders

A first-of-its-kind list from the Department of Homeland Security shows 206 detention requests that local police departments refused to honor. The tabulation containing complaints against state and local governments is set to be updated weekly.

*

On Monday, DHS released its first-ever list of police departments that do not comply with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requests to further detain suspects to be processed for possible deportation.

The 206 figure is vague, offering no details about what time it covers.

The premier installment of what’s anticipated to be a weekly report contains unclear parameters, such as the time period it covers or the reasons chosen by the local departments for not releasing suspects into ICE custody. The cases were identified by the administration between January 28 until February 3, according to Fox News. However, the actual detention requests could have come from any time since 2014.

The crimes covered range from unspecified traffic violations to murder charges. Some individuals were only indicated as having been charged with a crime, while others were convicted. The lack of distinction also leaves open the question of whether the individuals may have been found not guilty or had their charges dropped.

Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan defended the list, saying in a statement: When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect the public safety and carry out its mission.

The geographic focus of the list, with over two-thirds of the examples, was Travis County, home of the left-leaning Texas city of Austin. Sheriff Sally Hernandez won her position last year on a platform of not handing individuals facing minor crimes over to ICE.

Police departments in the Los Angeles area have defended similar policies by explaining that they require the cooperation and trust of undocumented immigrants, something that would likely be compromised with following policies that resulted in deportation for lesser offenses.

Could it be Russians? Mysterious spike in cell phone hacks hits DC

A pilot program from the Department of Homeland Security has uncovered a sudden rise in suspicious cell phone activity, raising concerns that a foreign nation is tracking individuals in the nation’s capital.

*

On Thursday, the Washington Free Beacon reported they obtained documents and spoke with security insiders about unusual spikes in Signalling System 7 (SS7) hacking near the White House and the Pentagon.

An employee at the telecom security firm ESD America confirmed the surge in activity with CBS News. According to the source, the activity could indicate that individuals within the government are being monitored.

ESD Overwatch, a DHS pilot program that monitors cell towers for anomalies, found massive amounts of location data were being siphoned off by an unknown third party.

While it is not clear who is behind the activity, the “sophistication and amount of time indicates it could be a foreign nation,” sources told the Washington Free Beacon.

The source also said the third party could have control of “entire cell phone towers in the area,” and said the hackers appear to be active in several areas across the country.

“The attack was first seen in D.C. but was later seen on other sensors across the USA,” a source told the Beacon. “A sensor located close to the White House and another over near the Pentagon have been part of those that have seen this tracking.”

Last year, a white paper released by security firm Positive Technologies demonstrated how SS7 could be manipulated using a popular Linux based computer and a publicly available software development kit (SDK).

The security team found that when they were able to determine a subscriber’s location, they could then intercept text messages, steal money, tap the user’s calls, and disrupt their communication services through SS7 vulnerabilities.

“If mobile providers do not implement protection systems against SS7-based attacks, there is little doubt that the public, private organizations or even entire nations will be among the victims of such attacks in the near future,” the security team said.

On Wednesday, Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) and Congressman Ted Lieu (D-California) sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, saying they are deeply concerned about SS7 vulnerabilities in cellular networks.

“We suspect that most Americans simply have no idea how easy it is for a relatively sophisticated adversary to track their movements, tap their calls, and hack their smartphones. We are also concerned that the government has not adequately considered the counterintelligence threat posed by SS7-enabled surveillance,” they wrote.

Last September, Reuters reported that the FBI was investigating several Democratic Party officials who had their cell phones hacked, though the report did not mention SS7 vulnerabilities.

Officials believed the attacks came from Russian-backed hackers, Reuters reported, since the attacks came shortly after Russia was accused of hacking the Democratic National Committee.

‘Misguided’ Obama counter-extremism program ‘almost exclusively’ targeted Muslims – report

Screen Shot 2017-03-17 at 11.09.33 AM

A program introduced by the Obama administration to deal with radicalization “almost exclusively” targeted Muslims, a report reveals, slamming the methodology as inefficient.

*

The FBI called the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) a step aimed at “strengthen[ing] our investigative, intelligence gathering and collaborative abilities to be proactive in countering violent extremism.”

However, the latest report by the Brennan Center for Justice questions this, saying it has acquired the internal documents on the program under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

In practice, the program “focused almost exclusively on American Muslim communities,” according to the report.

*

There was reportedly an inherent feeling of stigmatization related to the program, under which the US government gave grants to carry out the CVE to local communities and bodies within them, according to the paper. Those bodies more often than not were “police and public service agencies and policing research institutions.”

This gives “a grave risk that people who have nothing to do with terrorism will be labeled potential threats, particularly because schoolteachers and social service and healthcare providers who come into contact with young Muslims, but have no law enforcement or intelligence experience, are expected to make these determinations.”

Another important detail is that the FBI seems to be largely unsure about radicalization definitely leading to terrorism, documents obtained by the Brennan Center show. For instance, an FBI internal document dated August 2016 calls for authorities to be “proactive in countering violent extremism.”

A year earlier, the FBI’s Strategic Plan to Curb Violent Extremism explained: “There is neither one path or personality type which is prone to adopting extremist views [or] exhibiting violent tendencies.”

‘Warning signs’

The report details a number of signs that might lead law enforcement to wrongfully allege a person could “signal a propensity for violent extremism.” The first of these is the feeling that the West is at war with Islam because of “US interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq, drone attacks in Pakistan, the establishment of military bases in Muslim majority countries, human rights abuses against Muslims in Guantanamo Bay, civil rights infringements, US support for Israel, and Washington’s reluctance to support regime change in authoritarian states in the Middle East.”

*

The second sign would be feelings of alienation, hopelessness and injustice – however, the Brennan Center emphasizes in the report that if discovered in non-Muslims, these traits wouldn’t be deemed suspicious.

The report also slams the CVE for using “unscientific lists of markers or signs in a misguided effort to identify individuals who are supposedly on their way to becoming terrorists.”

The Brennan Center also notes that while “CVE intervention programs are framed as community-led efforts to counsel young Muslims” they are primarily funded, led and administrated by the US law enforcement agencies, including the Department of Justice and the FBI. That, in turn, boosts the risks that “these programs will act as a vehicle for intelligence reporting about people and organizations in CVE-targeted communities who have been identified as terrorism risks based on disproven indicators.”

The Brennan Center also draws a parallel between the CVE and the controversial Prevent program initiated by the UK government. In the UK’s case, local institutions like schools were urged to report any signs of potential radicalization in the area. British Muslims consequently said they felt stigmatized, as their own government called on teachers, doctors, social workers to report on them.

It seems that President Trump’s administration will lift the lid on the US government’s intentions: the Department of Homeland Security is reportedly reviewing the name of the program, and it could soon be renamed Countering Radical Islam or Countering Violent Jihad. That will mean “it will target only American Muslims” the report points out.

FOIA fail: ‘Most transparent ever’ Obama administration spent $36mn to hide records in 2016

The Obama administration granted less than a quarter of public requests for government files in its last year in office and spent $36.2 million on legal battles to keep its files secret, according to a new transparency report compiled for “Sunshine Week.”

*

Having aspired to be “the most transparent administration in history” at the beginning of President Barack Obama’s first term, it instead set records for denying, delaying or obstructing requests for government records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Associated Press reported on Tuesday, citing analysis of data provided by the US government.

The Justice Department spent $12 million on legal costs in fighting to keep its files from the public, with the Department of Homeland Security spending $6.3 million and the Department of Defense spending $4.8 million, AP noted. The three departments received more than half of the total FOIA requests made in 2016.

The Obama administration set many FOIA records last year, from the number of requests received (788,769) to the amount spent on answering them ($478 million). There were 4,263 full-time FOIA employees across over 100 federal agencies, 142 people more than in 2015.

Other achievements were less flattering, however – such as breaking its own record from 2015 in telling citizens, journalists and others who made FOIA requests that they couldn’t find a single page of the requested files, AP reported without citing the number of such cases.

The previous administration also set records for denying access to files, refusing to quickly process requests described as particularly newsworthy, and denying requests for waivers of copy and research fees.

In 77 percent of the cases, people who asked for records in 2016 received partly or fully redacted files, compared to 65 percent in 2009.

AP’s revelations come during “Sunshine Week,” an event organized in March each year by the American Society of News Editors to educate the public on the importance of open government.

Under the 1966 Freedom of Information Act, individuals can request copies of federal records for free or at a nominal cost. The government is obligated to hand them over, unless the disclosure could harm national security, violate personal privacy, or expose confidential decision-making – exemptions that authorities often abuse, according to critics.

“I will hold myself as president to a new standard of openness,” Obama said upon assuming office in 2009. “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”

During the 2015 Sunshine Week, the White House exempted itself from the FOIA.
