JW Reporter: Obama Admin Denying That ISIS Is Operating on Southern Border Is “Insane and Deplorable” (Video) UPDATED

Newsmax TV’s JD Hayworth talked to Judicial Watch Investigative reporter  Irene Garcia about their bombshell report from earlier this week claiming that terrorists have set up a training camp on the Southern border. High level Mexican sources are confirming JW’s reports from last August, that ISIS is operating at least one camp just a few miles from El Paso, TX.

Their sources include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican federal police inspector.

Garcia, a former LA Times reporter, said authorities on both side of the border have confirmed that the activity is occurring, but the Obama administration continues to claim the reports are unfounded for a number of reasons.

“…he wants better relations with Mexico, he’s allowing this influx of illegal immigrants coming in, he’s now facilitating with a program that Judicial Watch just broke, last week, where he’s flying the minors in, now because it’s too treacherous to cross the desert. If there’s terrorists right nearby – that would of course ruin that plan. A lot of it is denial – a lot of it is negligence – it’s downright insane and certainly deplorable that this is happening so close to our border, and yet the administration continues to officially say, that the border is secure – that this is unfounded.”

Garcia explained that ISIS is trying to enter the country through two ports of entry – El Paso and an area on the New Mexico border.

She referenced a Judicial Watch report from last August that revealed a leaked DHS warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border that had been issued within the agency and was not meant to go public.

Garcia ended by noting that a US government report a few years ago acknowledged that Islamic, Middle Eastern terrorists have teamed up with drug cartels on the border.

“But these reports get very little media attention and most of the public never hears about it,” she said.

UPDATE:

Judicial Watch is now reporting that the DOJ called a “special meeting” in Juarez to deal with their report.

FBI Holds “Special” Meeting in Juárez to Address ISIS, DHS Not Invited

A high-level intelligence source, who must remain anonymous for safety reasons, confirmed that the meeting was convened specifically to address a press strategy to deny Judicial Watch’s accurate reporting and identify who is providing information to JW. FBI supervisory personnel met with Mexican Army officers and Mexican Federal Police officials, according to JW’s intelligence source. The FBI liaison officers regularly assigned to Mexico were not present at the meeting and conspicuously absent were representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It’s not clear why DHS did not participate.

Publicly, U.S. and Mexico have denied that Islamic terrorists are operating in the southern border region, but the rapid deployment of FBI brass in the aftermath of JW’s report seems to indicate otherwise. A Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector were among the sources that confirmed to JW that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Sheriff Babeu: ICE Won’t Provide Names Of Released Criminal Illegals In Order To Protect Obama

Sarah Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), came under fire over the release of 30,000 criminal illegal immigrants last year, and 36,000 released prior, during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

That’s because, according to Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu, the government will not share with law enforcement the names of tens of thousands of violent criminals the Obama administration released into the public.

Appearing Tuesday afternoon on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Babeu told the host that he has sought the information through informal letter, through a Freedom of Information Act request, and through a request from help from Arizona Sen. John McCain.

“Senator McCain, who’s a powerful senator said, ‘Sheriff, I promise you I’m going to get you these names.’ He can’t get me the names. Nobody will get me these names,” Babeu said.
The reason the names aren’t being released, Babeu suspects, is because, once they recommit crimes, their heinous acts could be tracked back to Barack Obama.
“The reason why they will refuse to provide these names is because then we have a list of all these illegals that our government – President Obama has released into our communities that are committing new crimes – that are committing murder, that are committing rape, that are committing aggravated assault, and armed robbery, and then we can directly link them back to the president’s action – of this unlawful mass prison-break.”

The 30,000-plus criminals released back into the general population are said to include 193 convicted of murder; more than 300 convicted of rape and sexual assault; and 200 to 300 convicted of kidnapping.

Babeu said diplomatic pressure should be applied to those countries, included denying visas, if the criminals aren’t taken back.

Sunshine State News: Ted Yoho Pushes Back Against Presidential Overreach:

U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., is looking to put a check on executive power with a resolution returning Article 1 powers to Congress and looking to include executive usurpation as grounds for impeachment. Despite being a fierce critic of President Barack Obama, Yoho said his proposal was not directed against the president.

“Many of the people I have the honor of representing are tired of executive overreach and the circumvention of legislative process,” Yoho said on Monday. “It is a dangerous precedent to set when the president begins to rule by fiat and takes on the role that is specifically reserved for Congress.

DHS Launches New Program Offering Free Transportation for Children of Central American Immigrants to the US

free-flights-700x357

As the media hypes bright shiny objects like SSM,  and Obama’s “peace in our time” Iran nuke deal, the Regime’s radical immigration policies continue apace.

Our fundamental transformation requires a steady flow of third world immigrants into the nation – and to facilitate the process of entering the United States, illegally, the Obama administration is offering them FREE TRANSPORTATION  “and a special refugee/parole program with “resettlement assistance” and permanent residency.”

Via Judicial Watch:

Under the new initiative the administration has rebranded the official name it originally assigned to the droves of illegal immigrant minors who continue sneaking into the U.S. They’re no longer known as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), a term that evidently was offensive and not politically correct enough for the powerful open borders movement. The new arrivals will be officially known as Central American Minors (CAM) and they will be eligible for a special refugee/parole that offers a free one-way flight to the U.S. from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The project is a joint venture between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the State Department.

Specifically, the “program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States,” according to a DHS memo obtained by JW this week. The document goes on to say that the CAM program has started accepting applications from “qualifying parents” to bring their offspring under the age of 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The candidates will then be granted a special refugee parole, which includes many taxpayer-funded perks and benefits. Among them is a free education, food stamps, medical care and living expenses.

During a teleconference this week with officials from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the State Department, an official said that applicants would not be required to express or document a credible fear to qualify under CAM because “we want to make sure this program is open to as many people as possible.”

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton will be on Special Report with Brett Baier Friday night to discuss this report.

 

TX Judge Orders Obama’s Lawyers Back To Court To Explain Executive Amnesty Deception

The Texas judge who last month blocked the president’s executive action on immigration has ordered federal government lawyers back into court to answer allegations the government purposefully misled him about the three-year amnesties to 100,000 illegal immigrants that the administration already granted.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen has ordered federal government lawyers to appear in his court March 19 in Brownsville. The hearing is in response to a filing last week in which the government acknowledged some deportation reprieves were granted before Hanen’s Feb. 16 injunction.

Government attorneys had previously said officials wouldn’t accept such requests under Obama’s action until Feb. 18.

Via the Daily Caller:

“Due to the seriousness of the matters discussed therein, the Court will not rule on any other pending motions until it is clear that these matters, if true, do not impact the pending matters or any rulings previously made by this Court,” U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen wrote in a Monday decision.

Greg Abbott Says Obama Admin. Misled Fed Court: “Time For Contempt”

Amid accusations Wednesday that the Obama administration purposefully lied to a federal judge,  Texas Governor Abbott has called on the court to place him in contempt.

Via The Right Scoop:

Byron York explained the Regime’s subterfuge at the Washington Examiner:

The administration’s schedule shaped the schedule of those challenging the president’s action. On Feb. 16, federal judge Andrew Hanen issued an order stopping the program, noting in his opinion that “the DHS’ website provides February 18, 2015 as the date it will begin accepting applications under DACA’s new criteria, and mid-to-late May for DAPA applications.” Hanen barred the administration from implementing “any and all aspects or phases of the expansions (including any and all changes)” to DACA and also “any and all aspects or phases” of DAPA.

So everyone involved knew the score. Changes to DACA, which had been scheduled to start Feb. 18, were on hold. DAPA was also on hold. And everyone assumed those dates to be accurate. But now, the administration is telling a different story.

***

The day after filing the motion, Jan. 15, Justice Department lawyer Kathleen Hartnett appeared in Hanen’s court to emphasize that there was no problem delaying things for a while because the administration wasn’t implementing the president’s changes.

“In that [motion] we reiterated that no applications for the revised DACA — this is not even DAPA — revised DACA would be accepted until the 18th of February,” Hartnett told the judge, “and that no action would be taken on any of those applications until March the 4th.”

A moment later, just to be sure, Hanen said to Hartnett, “But as far as you know, nothing is going to happen in the next three weeks?”

“No, your honor,” Hartnett said.

“OK,” Hanen answered. “On either?”

“In terms of accepting applications or granting any up-or-down applications,” Hartnett said.

“OK,” said Hanen.

“For revised DACA, just to be totally clear,” Hartnett said.

Hartnett did not mention the 100,000 illegal immigrants to whom the administration had already rushed to grant longer protections and work permits under the president’s order.

Weasel Zippers: Feds Processed 7 Million Immigration Applications…IN ONE YEAR…

This is a ridiculous number…

Via Breitbart:

On Tuesday, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials revealed that the agency processed nearly seven million immigration-related applications in just one year alone (fiscal year 2014). Because the agency does not have the resources to conduct in-person interviews with every applicant, officials noted that applicants for President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood (DACA) program did not have to go though face-to-face interviews before being granted temporary amnesty.

Potential applicants for President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty program for the illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens will also not be given in-person interviews if the federal government is allowed to proceed with its implementation after the court case against it is resolved.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE — SCOTT WALKER COMES OUT AGAINST BOEHNER’S AND MCCONNELL’S DEAL WITH DEMS TO FUND OBAMA’S AMNESTY

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a frontrunner in many 2016 GOP presidential polls in recent weeks, has come out swinging against the deal House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just cut with congressional Democrats to fund President Obama’s executive amnesty.

The basis of his opposition to the deal is twofold.

First, he doesn’t agree with the way it surrenders Congress’ power of the purse to Obama through at least the end of September, the current fiscal year.

Second, Walker is furious that Democrats who publicly stated many times they opposed the president’s actions didn’t follow through and vote their stated positions.

Also, Walker—whose state of Wisconsin is part of the Texas-led 26-state lawsuit against the president’s actions—says that in addition to states fighting this in court, the Congress needs to do its job to stop Obama, a job that Congress has thus far failed at. Federal judge Andrew S. Hanen has put Obama’s executive amnesty on hold until appeals are completed in the court system–something the administration has reluctantly agreed to comply with.

Whistleblower Reveals How Obama Plans To Transform America Through Immigration (Audio)

Last week, Sue Payne of WCBM called into Mark Levin’s radio show with some bombshell information about Obama’s new immigration Task Force on new Americans that was created by Obama November 21 to implement his executive amnesty. The Task Force began meeting in Jan – Feb 2015, and Sue was invited to listen in on a series of three phone calls.

She learned about the Regime’s insidious plan to use American citizens’ tax dollars to subsidize these “New Americans”  and give them Social Security benefits and other benefits the White House says they are “entitled to”.

Sue said that it became clear while listening in on the conference call that Obama plans to legalize much more than 5 million illegal immigrants – she thinks it going to be more like 13-15 million. There were 16 members of Obama’s Cabinet in on the call, including La Raza’s Cecilia Nunoz, she said.

The plan is to create a  ‘country within a country’ of these“emergent immigrant communities” who will not be expected to assimilate as they receive government benefits.

Some of the information exchanged via Sue Payne, WCBM:

  • Immigrants should be viewed as seedlings to be planted in fertile soil to grow.  The fertile soil was equated to the “receiving communities” which would be those communities the illegal aliens are now living in, but once out of the shadows, these communities become welcoming or receiving communities.
  • Others commented that these same communities would be viewed as “emergent immigrant communities”
  • As a listener on the call, it was easy to logically see how these communities would welcome immigrants out of the shadows, but also, it could be construed that the host community members might well be relegated into the shadows.  In essence, the seedlings consume the host and what was once the original community is transformed.
  • One comment cautioned against assuming these “New Americans” would want to assimilate.  The interest was in navigation, not assimilation, and the navigation was through the system, focused on benefits.
  • Another commented that not all the New Americans would want work permits; rather many of the immigrant women wanted to be home with their children and not work, provided taxpayer benefits are secured for them and their children.
  • Another suggestion indicated that the Task Force consider these New Americans as refugees or asylum seekers, and as such considered for cash, medical, educational, and housing benefits.

Judicial Watch has reportedly already begun an investigation into the Task Force on New Americans.

DHS Defies Court Ruling: Rushing Amnesty Contracts at “Full-Throttle Pace” UPDATED

UPDATE: Good News: Hours after Judicial Watch posted this story, the government cancelled the Request For Proposal (RFP). It looks like they were trying to pull a fast one, but got caught.
***
It’s almost as if Monday’s Federal Court injunction to stop Obama’s Executive Amnesty didn’t happen.
According to a Judicial Watch source,  DHS is rushing to award contracts to 200 – 600 companies to process illegal immigrants as soon as possible.
Though a federal court has blocked President Obama’s amnesty order the administration continues working behind the scenes to quickly award multi-million-dollar contracts to firms that can expeditiously process millions of illegal immigrants, a government source has alerted Judicial Watch.

The complex deal is being rushed through at a “full-throttle pace” extremely rare for such a huge venture  that’s sure to radically change the current system, according to JW’s source, who has worked for decades as a contract expert at the highest levels of government. The Request For Proposal (RFP) was recently posted in the government’s official database for federal procurement opportunities and comes from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency charged with processing visa and naturalization petitions, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The RFP estimates that the population of potential requesters for the president’s deferred action will be “approximately four million people” and that USCIS anticipates the initial filing of “approximately five to six million forms” related to the amnesty order which also covers the illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens and lawful residents. The work is to begin in mid-March, the document reveals, and the contractor will operate out of a new center in Arlington, Virginia because there is no current facility with available space or staff to accommodate the “additional volume of work.” The center will be dedicated to processing deferred action for illegal immigrant parents of citizens, employment authorization and correspondence management.

Read the rest here.

Something seems to have changed since Tuesday when DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said that although he “strongly” disagreed with the decision, “we recognize we must comply with it.”

Judge Hanen’s order specifically bans agencies like DHS and USCIS from executing Obama’s executive action.

Looks like we may have a Constitutional Crisis on our hands.

Hot Air: Rasmussen: Plurality of Democrats think Obama should be able to ignore court rulings if it’s “important”:

A small reminder that Obama couldn’t get away with his authoritarian plays on immigration and health care if his party wasn’t backing him up. Turns out, in fact, that they’re willing to go even further than he is. Obama tends to limit himself to summarily rewriting federal statutes, like immigration laws and ObamaCare’s employer mandate. Democrats wonder: Why not rewrite some federal court rulings too?

Something to bear in mind as we wait for SCOTUS’s decision on ObamaCare subsidies in the Halbig case and the Fifth Circuit’s decision on that injunction blocking O’s executive amnesty. He’s already entered the YOPO phase of his presidency. Why not make his base happy by ignoring any adverse rulings and instigating a full-blown constitutional crisis?
