Bummer: Immigration Raids Have Illegal Aliens Living In Fear

Does anyone remember this type of headline while Obama was in office, and federal authorities were raiding workplaces and homes to snatch up illegal aliens? Not from the Credentialed Media. It shows the bias in the media, however, this is actually a good thing with illegals being fearful, as CNN attempts to paint a sob story

After ICE arrests, fear spreads among undocumented immigrants

Across the United States, some unauthorized immigrants are keeping their children home from school. Others have suspended after-school visits to the public library. They have given up coffee shop trips and weekend restaurant dinners with family.

Some don’t answer knocks on their doors. They’re taping bedsheets over windows and staying off social media. Nervous parents and their children constantly exchange text messages and phone calls.

From New York to Los Angeles, a series of immigration arrests this week have unleashed waves of fear and uncertainty across immigrant communities.

Where’s the downside? People who’ve broken the law should be fearful of law enforcement coming by and picking them up, then sending them back to their originating countries. Because they are unlawfully present. And using up valuable resources that would be best reserved for legal citizens.

The fear started to set in after President Donald Trump’s inauguration last month, according to advocates. It heightened after Thursday’s deportation of an undocumented Arizona mother of two who was making a routine visit with immigration officials. And Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents this week carried out numerous actions in California, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Texas and other states.

The more illegals are concerned with being here illegally, the more will leave voluntarily, and, more importantly, the fewer will come to the United States illegally and/or overstay their visas.

ICE said Friday that about 160 foreign nationals were arrested during the week.

Of those, 150 had criminal histories, and of the remaining arrests, five had final orders of removal or were previously deported.

It actually gets better than that

So, what CNN, illegal alien supporting Democrats, and the illegals themselves are freaking out over are raids that caught up illegal alien child molesters and other convicted felons. Is this whom they really want to throw their support? Of course.

Thirty seven had already been deported to Mexico by Saturday. That’s a great thing, much like how quick Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos was deported. And the way it should be. If you’re found in the country illegally, you should be deported within days.

We can talk of building a wall, but, the best deterrent is to create an atmosphere where most will not come to the U.S. illegally in the first place, nor overstay their visas. If they’re concerned that they will be picked up and deported quickly, if they know that work will be almost impossible to find, if they know they will not receive schooling and a public safety net, that they cannot obtain driver’s licenses, nor purchase a car, not rent a place to live, they won’t stick around.

If they really want to be here, let them do it the legal way. Learn English, show you want to be here. Until then, Trump should continue to create an atmosphere of fear of deportation, unlike the atmosphere of “sure, come on in!” we saw during the Obama era. The more the media stokes the fire of fear, the better.

    The fear or concern is that trump will expand the pogrom to include non-violent residents.

    • Conservative Beaner says:

      I hope he does. I want all those illegals who are not only breaking the law by being in this country illegally but also working illegally as well. I especially want the relatives of the California State Senator to be deported for committing a felony by using a false Social Security Card. If they are stealing someones identity and causing employment and tax problems for the victim of the theft they should go to prison first and then be deported.

    • Dana says:

      It should be expanded to include all illegal immigrants.

      It’s almost impossible for an illegal immigrant to break only one law. They all need food, clothing and shelter, and that means they have to work. If they get a legitimate job, it means a fake Social Security number and forged documents. That means that either the employer is ignoring obvious forgeries, and is committing a crime, or someone out there is providing good forged documents. If they are working off the books, for cash, they’re evading taxes, a crime. If they are living on welfare, they have misrepresented themselves, and a social worker has probably broken the law as well.

      The criminality just snowballs: everything the illegal immigrant does to survive in the United States winds up being another crime.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Beaner,

    This is the problem when a minority ruling class tries to govern a majority in opposition to a particular policy. The mass of Americans oppose the indiscriminant deportation of all undocumented immigrants. Standard trumpian modus operandi will be to declare a policy targeting only violent felons but quietly pushing mission creep to round up peaceful residents and their children.

    The new conservative movement is using immigration policy, not to solve a problem, but to satisfy their bigotry against non-white, non-natives. Why not do it openly?

    • That’s a cute strawman, Jeff. Simply meant to deflect the subject.

      So, let me ask you, Jeff, why, exactly, do you support allowing people who have both come to this county illegally and overstayed their visas, and have either committed felonies while in this country or were felons in their home country, including sexual assault of minors, to remain in this country?

      Please explain.

    As my moniker says I am of the brown persuasion and I want illegals deported. My wife is of Mexican decent and she wants illegals deported. Most Americans want illegals deported which is why Trump is now President. Americans who want illegals deported are not against legal immigration but welcome it.

    Once again Jeff you try associate enforcing the law with racism. Oh by the way Jeff not all illegals are from Mexico or Latin America. Some are from Asian and African Nations and (gasp) European Nations as well.

  4. Jeffery says:

    Beaner,

    If you and your wife look “Mexican” you should make certain you have “your papers” with you at all times or you could end up in jail, at least for a while. I sincerely hope you do not suffer that kind of humiliation and threat. If you do get harassed by the authorities it will almost certainly be a progressive lawyer who helps you. Good luck.

    You typed:

    Most Americans want illegals deported which is why Trump is now President.

    This is where you need to support your seemingly incorrect statement with evidence. Polls show that Americans oppose deporting all undocumented immigrants. And in fact, trump was elected by a few thousand anti-immigrant white voters in a few rust belt states. In fact, many more Americans voted against trump than voted for him.

  5. gitarcarver says:

    Nope.

      • gitarcarver says:

        You must hnot remember what you said :

        Polls show that Americans oppose deporting all undocumented immigrants.

        Apparently you failed to read your own citation which shows that people prefer a path to citizenship over deportation, but not that people are opposed to deporting immigrants (all or some.)

        You either misread your own citation or lied.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          The little guy tends to do that often.

        • Jeffery says:

          There you go again…

        • Jeffery says:

          Yes, people can simultaneously prefer a path to citizenship AND prefer to deport immigrants. Only in conservaworld… You have to lie to yourselves to believe that a majority of American people favor tracking down and deporting all undocumented immigrants.

          Q28. Now, thinking about how the U.S. government should treat illegal immigrants who have been in this country for a number of years, hold a job, speak English and are willing to pay any back taxes that they owe.

          Would you favor or oppose a bill that allowed those immigrants to stay in this country rather than being deported and eventually allow them to apply for U.S. citizenship?
          Sept. 1-4 2016
          Favor 88% Oppose 11% No opinion *

          Q23. Thinking about the way the U.S. government deals with the issue of illegal immigration, which of the following policy goals should be the government’s top priority: (RANDOM ORDER)

          Sept. 1-4 2016
          Developing a plan to allow those in the U.S. illegally who have jobs to become legal residents 51%
          Developing a plan to stop immigrants from entering the U.S. illegally 36%
          Deporting immigrants already in the U.S. illegally 11%
          No opinion 2%

          • gitarcarver says:

            Unbelievable.

            You post another survey that shows your statement was wrong.

            Give it up, Jeffery.

            Just have the maturity to admit that once again you got caught.

            Most people have learned that when you dig yourself a hole, you stop digging.

            You, on the other hand, dig a hole and then pull out a backhoe to keep digging.

  6. […] enforcement enforcing laws? How will America ever survive? Noted blogger William Teach actually favors enforcing laws. That is like is soooooooo […]

    Comment of the week:

    The leftist media and the left in general are scared shitless because for the first time in a looong time a madman with balls that clank ran for office basically saying he was going to break ALL of their shit, and with a public that got behind him and said fuck yeah dude have at it.

  8. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Polls show that Americans oppose deporting all undocumented immigrants.

    Sorry Jeffery but only polls taken in a leftist bubble would how that. But you keep on thinking that way so we can cream you in the next election.

    Jeffery, a record 94 million Americans are not in the labor force. You and your party fail to understand, to my complete enjoyment, is the average middle class guy is watching you. He sees your party wanting Mexicans and moslems let in. These are not doctors and engineers, these are low end workers. Millions of them. And they take entry level jobs from Americans. And they take lower end jobs from the elderly trying to supplement their income. And they take jobs from kids who need their first real opportunity. And they take jobs from all those people you democrats say you’re for but you crap on. So YOUR immigrants HURT the poor and they know it! But many of your immigrants can’t speak well enough to get a low end job. They may have health problems. Or they are too old or too young to work. So what happens to them Jeffery? They go on welfare and have middle class guys like us work for them pay taxes, feed them, educate them cover their health and cover their heads and fill their bellies. We don’t go to work to feed foreigners sneaking into our country illegally. And we too are watching the democrats.

    And tonight we working class and lower class guys are going to turn on the TV to see a bunch of leftist millionaires give each other awards and bitch about Trump. A bunch of narcissistic fools full of leftist privilege lecturing us, the working and non working stiffs of America about how bad Trump is when it is Trump who wants to save our country, not you, not those rich bastards who lecture us about AGW and have limos, three 20,000 Sq. Ft. homes, a jet and fly all over bitching and complaining about how “unfair” conservatives are and how Trump is a Nazi. We have met the Nazis and they are you.

  9. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    Recall, more people voted against bigotry, racism and hatred than voted for it.

    If you and your ilk sit around and cluck and circle jerk you’ll be in for a big surprise over the next few years.

    You can oppress a minority with threats but it you can only oppress a majority with force. If trump and his brownshirts continue down this path there is no good outcome for his movement. None.

  10. Rev.Hoagie® says:

    Recall, more people voted against bigotry, racism and hatred than voted for it.

    I would hope so since bigotry, racism and hatred weren’t on any ballot. Yet almost every one of your comments proves to be chock full of all three. To you all white people are supremacists, Christians are bigots and anyone not far left like you are haters. Wow, what a narrow minded world you live in. You have a derogatory name for everybody who does not think exactly as you do, don’t you?

    Exactly who is “oppressing” a minority and which minority might that be? You throw around a lot of accusations but who has had their free speech oppressed? Who has been stopped from speaking at colleges? Who get beat up for supporting their candidate? Who gets their livelihood threatened by Nordstrom? Who gets death threats?

  11. Jeffery says:

    Why do you think Black Americans make so much less than whites? Why have Blacks accumulated so much less wealth than whites? Why do conservative politicians work so hard to keep Blacks from voting?

    So Nordstrom, a private business, is obligated to lose money selling unpopular items? Should the federal gov determine what a company sells?

    The federal judges ruling against president Bannon received threats.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Why do you think Black Americans make so much less than whites? Why have Blacks accumulated so much less wealth than whites?

      Probably because of all those racist state and federal laws that make it illegal for black parents to help their children with their school homework.

  12. Jeffery says:

    I would hope so since bigotry, racism and hatred weren’t on any ballot.

    It’s what candidate trump ran on.

  13. Jeffery says:

    Unbelievable. You argue as a lawyer, where facts and truth don’t matter – all that matters is the perception of winning or losing. Interesting.

    Most Americans do not favor rounding up and deporting all undocumented immigrants.
    Most Americans do not favor rounding up and deporting all undocumented immigrants.
    Most Americans do not favor rounding up and deporting all undocumented immigrants.

    You will find this out if your god-king tries it.

  14. jl says:

    “More voted against bigotry, racism and hatred …..” I’d ask J to offer proof of his assertions, but like most liberals when they can’t argue facts they resort to name-calling.

    • Jeffery says:

      j,

      trump, the candidate of bigotry, racism and hatred, lost by nearly 3 million votes. Or do you, like trump, believe that the vote tallies were hoaxes?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Trump didn’t lose.
        It’s all over the news.
        Try to keep up, little loser.
        Or are you against the Constitution?

      • Rev.Hoagie® says:

        trump, the candidate of bigotry, racism and hatred, lost by nearly 3 million votes. Or do you, like trump, believe that the vote tallies were hoaxes?

        Jeffery please. You are more than welcome to present your points but the fact is, Trump won. You do understand that, don’t you? If you keep repeating that he lost we can’t consider you sane. Jeffery, who is President of the United States?

        Now you don’t like trump. No leftist likes Trump because he isn’t afraid of you. When you say this foolish nonsense about him being “the candidate of bigotry, racism and hatred” once again you sound insane. He’s not “the candidate” he’s the President. He won. See, if you can’t face reality, the facts, then you have no case.

        Mr Trump has been in business for decades and during those decades he’s employed thousands of people. He’s hired blacks, moslems, Mexicans, gays, Jews, handicapped, women and I hear eve a few guys named Jeffery. He has by his very hiring expertise he is neither a bigot nor racist nor hates anyone.

        You, OTOH, have frequently made racial slurs toward white people and bigoted prejudiced slurs against Christians. You show no tolerance for anyone who does not hold your radical leftist views and treat other people like crap. You want to punish and harm and maybe worse people who you don’t like, agree with or you consider beneath you like Trump supporters. You think you’re too good for the average working man and you want to replace him with Mexicans and moslems that will support your policies for welfare. We are wise to what your party is doing and we’re not going to be “ghettoized” like you democrats did to black Americans. You may have ruined their family, church and neighborhoods but we won’t be that easy.

          Hoagie,

          Even you must realize that trump garnered fewer votes from American voters than did his opponent. Of course he is our so-called president, installed fair and square. trumpy doesn’t seem to understand that he is the least popular president in modern times. Most Americans didn’t vote for him – most Americans do not support his policies. If trumpy and the GOP insist in ruling by diktat they will learn the true meaning of We The People. I mistaken thought they would lay low until after 2018, but I was wrong. Their hubris will hurt them. The battle will be between GOP voter suppression and energized voters.

          trump campaigned impugning Mexican and Muslim immigrants, Blacks, liberals, Jews, women, gays, the handicapped … everyone but straight white christian men… because he knew his emerging base valued that sort of bigotry and hatred in a candidate. And seriously, am I any harder on christian extremists than you are on Muslims?

  15. drowningpuppies says:

    Like the little guy proves with his every comment, people with inferiority complexes choose a way to rationalize their hatred and envy, even if it is stupid.

  16. Genericviews says:

    CNN this morning interviewed Reyes’s husband. They asked him what he was going to do now? Take the kids to Mexico to visit their mother? It was obvious the guys was thinking, “I’ll just wait until next week when she comes back”.
