FoxNews.com reports that
Vice President Kamala Harris was criticized Saturday for arguing against voter ID laws because rural Americans couldn’t get photocopies of their ID’s.
“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that [compromise on voter ID laws] could mean,” Harris said in her interview with BET News. “Because in some people’s mind, that means you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove who you are. Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t – there’s no Kinkos, there’s no OfficeMax near them.”
“Of course people have to prove who they are,” Harris continued, but “not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are.”
The vice president’s comments come in the midst of a nationwide battle over voter ID laws, with states like Georgia and Texas taking center stage. Many progressives argue that voter ID laws are “racist,” while Republicans suggest the laws are necessary to prevent voter fraud.
Rural Americans took issue with the vice president’s comments, suggesting she is out of touch with the nation.
“We built this country. We can manage to photocopy our ID’s,” tweeted former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright.
Others questioned Harris’ comments that people had to prove who they were, but “not in ways that make it impossible to prove who they are.”
“No one is buying this ridiculous argument against Voter ID,” tweeted veteran and Pennsylvania Senate candidate Sean Parnell. “The vast majority of Americans support it. Let’s get it done.”
Last month, President Biden announced that he tapped Harris to lead the White House’s fight to expand access to the ballot box, an issue the vice president told BET News she specifically asked to lead. In the same interview, though, Harris noted that she may have not said “‘no’ enough” to the multiple assignments from Biden, but that she is used to “multitasking”
Polling data from the Associated Press shows that most Americans support laws requiring photo identification to access the ballot box, with a majority of both Republicans and Democrats backing the idea. Overall, 72% of American adults support requiring photo identification to vote.
Harris’ comments came during the BET special titled “State of Our Union: Vice President Kamala Harris” that aired on Friday. The interview also touched on coronavirus vaccine rates and police reform.
The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.
Dear Vice-President Harris…or may I just call you “Heels Up”?
First off, allow me to introduce myself.
I am one of those average Americans, living in the Northwest corner of the State of Mississippi, whom you have, in your arrogance, mistakenly labeled as “Rural” simply because we do not live in the densely crowded metropolitan areas of either coast and we voted for Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.
You probably think of us as being a “rural minority”.
That’s funny. Last night, as I was writing this response to you, I took a look once again at the 2016 Electoral Map and was once again struck by the fact that 80% of the continental land mass known as the contiguous United States was 80% red and just 20% blue.
Doesn’t the word “minority” mean “a smaller number of”?
Your “Fellow Travelers” also claim that those of us residing in the area which you Coastal Liberals tend to refer to as “Flyover Country” but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland” as “the core threat to our democracy”.
Forgive my bluntness, but Civics Class must have been one of those which you skipped in order to hang out with the “cool kids”.
America is not a “democracy”. Our Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, created this Blessed Land as a Constitutional Republic in order to provide fair and equal representation to all areas of the country, whether they be densely populated “urban” areas or sparsely populated “rural” areas.
No American’s vote is more important than somebody else’s.
When I voted down here, outside Memphis, Tennessee, in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State during the rigged Presidential Election of 2020, it was supposed to count as your vote.
The Founders created and put in place the Electoral College in order to prevent just what you and the rest of your Fellow Travelers in the Far Left Democratic Party are suddenly crying for: a nation where its leaders are selected by mob rule in which special interest groups of a minority political philosophy join together to form a voting bloc in order to “radically change” the course of a Sovereign Nation.
In the case of Modern America Liberals, such as yourself, this would allow you and your Fellow Travelers to change our Constitutional Republic into a “Democratic” Socialist Nation, a form of government based on Marxist Theory which has never worked in any country in which it has been tried.
If that is the sort of country you which to live in…move to Venezuela.
I am certain that they could use your “help”.
By the way, addressing your “concern” that voters in “rural areas have no way of making copies of their IDs…
During the COVID-19 Lockdown and subsequent Stimulus Checks, Walmarts across the Heartland sold out of printers, so children could do their schoolwork and those Americans who kept working at home could do their jobs.
Oh, and before you call me a “rascist”, you do realize that Black Americans use their IDs every day out here in the sticks, don’t you?
We “stupid” “Rural” Americans even know how to use a home printer to make copies.
In conclusion, Ms. Reid, it was your own arrogance, yours and your Fellow Travelers’, which led to the election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
And, once again, it will be your undoing.
As it says in Proverbs 16:18,
Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
Or, as you guys in your self-proclaimed “urban majority” like to say,
Payback’s a…well…you know.

Overestimation of their own intelligence and underestimation of the intelligence and backbone of average Americans, here in America’s Heartland, is what cost Modern American Liberals the White House and a Congressional Majority.
You would think that they would be trying to suck up to average Americans, instead of didactically instructing us as to what we MUST believe.
Because when they do that, it always backfires.

FoxNews.com reports that
The 2020 Emmys kicked off during unprecedented times with a fakeout that saw the host pretend to present the opening monologue for an audience that wasn’t really there.
The 72nd Emmy Awards are without a doubt the most unique award show in recent memory thanks to the coronavirus pandemic forcing the broadcast to go virtual and forego the large gathering of celebrities dressed to the nines on the red carpet.
Still, that didn’t stop host Jimmy Kimmel from making the most out of a bad situation, kicking off the show with an opening monologue that poked fun at the pandemic, Trump supporters and Hollywood.
The host took the stage to thunderous applause from the audience, all of whom appeared to be live and in-person as he mocked the “frivolous and unnecessary” awards show. However, midway through the opening monologue, it became clear that the footage was just being reused from a previous show. Kimmel hung a lantern on that fact when he spotted himself in the crowd.
“Of course I’m here all alone, of course we don’t have an audience!” Kimmel said. “This isn’t a MAGA rally, it’s the Emmys. Instead of the live audience, we took a page from baseball and did cardboard cutouts of the nominees.”
With that, the host highlighted some cardboard cutouts in the crowd at the Staples Center before awkwardly noticing that “Ozark” star Jason Bateman was there in person. The star asked if he could stay because he’s been going crazy in quarantine. When Kimmel suggested that he could stay despite safety regulations if he agreed to laugh at his jokes.
“I’m out,” Bateman curtly replied.
The show then forged ahead with Kimmel revealing that more than 100 cameras were dispatched to stars all around the country so that they could tune in and give their acceptance speeches if they won. Jennifer Aniston arrived in person to announce that “Schitt’s Creek” actress Catharine O’Hara took home the first award of the night for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series. O’Hara’s on-screen husband, Eugene Levy, took home the next award for his role on the same show.
The series pulled off the hat trick by taking home the first three awards of the night when series creator and star Daniel Levy brought home the Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series.
“Getting to write David Rose, getting to write this show, getting to tell these stories has been the greatest and most cathartic experience of my life,” the younger Levy said after tearing up thanking his Emmy-winning dad.
Things got slightly political once again before the announcement of Daniel Levy again as the winner for outstanding directing in a comedy series when “Barry” actor Anthony Carrigan somewhat reprised his role from the show. He engaged in a bit with Kimmel in which he pretended to be a Russian operative impersonating a mail carrier out to steal mail-in-voting ballots. When Kimmel wasn’t fooled, Carrigan’s character settled for handing over the Emmy winners envelopes.
The “Schitt’s Creek” winning streak continued for a fifth award when Daniel won outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.
“OK, the Internet is about to turn on me,” he joked before giving his acceptance speech.
“Schitt’s Creek” continued its winning streak with Annie Murphy taking home the award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series. Finally, the show maintained its winning streak by taking home the coveted award for outstanding comedy series.
Daniel spent his moment speaking to encourage fans to register and vote in November.
“I’m so sorry for making this political,” he said before turning things over to his dad, who promptly gave thanks to everyone involved, including his son.
Kimmel kept the jabs at Trump coming by noting that he should have built his wall on the northern border of the U.S., taking a shot at the Canada-based “Schitt’s Creek” cast.
“Has he tweeted yet? Oh, it’s Sunday, he’s probably at Church,” Kimmel said, mocking the president.
David Letterman arrived next for a pre-recorded segment in which he announced the first non-”Schitt’s Creek” related award of the night, which went to “Last Week Tonight” with John Oliver.
As the show moved out of comedy, Regina King took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for her leading role in HBO’s “Watchmen.” She was the first of the night to acknowledge the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died earlier this week at age 87. The actress was wearing a bright pink blazer and a black t-shirt with a photo of Breonna Taylor on it.
Mark Ruffalo kept the political ball rolling, giving a speech next after taking home the award for outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie where he encouraged people to vote in November for “compassion and kindness” rather than a country of “hatred and division” that’s only for “a certain type of people.”
Damon Lindelof and Cord Jefferson got to speak next after winning for their writing on “Watchmen.” In his speech, Jefferson acknowledged the victims of the 1921 racially motivated massacre in Tulsa, Okla. that was used as the backdrop for the series.
“This country neglects and forgets its own history at its own peril often and I think that we should never forget them,” he said. “Thank you so much for this honor.”
Fortunately for viewers, the show wasn’t completely without levity. Kimmel introduced a segment halfway through the awards show that saw famous TV celebrities like Will Arnett, Kene Thompson, Bob Newhart and more explain what they’re doing in quarantine. The bit featured former “Saturday Night Live” star David Spade dress up as “Tiger King” subject Joe Exotic.
First off, what in the world is the matter with the Producers of the Emmy Awards?
Couldn’t they find someone who is actually entertaining to host the show?
Or, someone who actually knows that America is a Constitutional Republic, not a Third World Country, where our leader is chosen by mob rule?
I stopped watching awards shows, such as the Emmys, years ago, as they did indeed become more and more of a Sounding Board for Far Left Political Opinion and less of a showcase of the brightest and best in their respective entertainment industries.
Those “celebrities” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton for President back in 2016, continue to throw the longest temper tantrum over the results of one of the biggest upsets in an American Presidential Election that the world has ever seen.
These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.
In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.
It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.
This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.
All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.
There is a reason for that.
The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.
This meltdown which promises to last way past Inauguration Day, is a reaction caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.
Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.
At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.
I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?
Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?
Average Americans continue to be treated as subhuman by the self-proclaimed “Smartest People in the Room”.
These “spoiled brats”, such as those seen on the Emmy Awards last night, still weeping and wailing in the throes of self-afflicted agony over the miserable failure of Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on reinstating. restoring, and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as their “Fellow Travelers” attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, by trying to block President Donald J. Trump’s mandate which he was given by the average Americans who elected him the 45th President of the United States of America.
The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, as taught by Liberal professors in American Universities and preached by Far Left Radical Organizations like Antifa and BLM, who are in turn funded by Former Nazi Sympathizer and Billionaire George Soros, has inspired these “protesters”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.
When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.
They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.
And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us out here in the Heartland of America, between the East and Left Coasts, the right, including President Donald J. Trump, the man whom the “Dancing Monkeys” of the Television Industry attempted to vilify last night, to speak our minds and be heard.
According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 9, 2020, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.
The fact is, a majority of those working in the Entertainment Industry are Liberal in their Political Ideology…at least, it is evident that the most vocal of them are.
Therefore, please allow me in summation, to address the Special Snowflakes of the Glitterati…
To those of you in Tinsel Town who believe that your ability to stand of a piece of tape on a set, mug for the camera, and read lines on a cue card or even memorize a few of them, somehow gives you the authority to insult, demean, and act superior to those of us here in the Heartland who were responsible for the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America…HERE’S A REALITY CHECK FOR YOU:
Average Americans, such as myself and my readers, really don’t give a tinker’s damn about your opinions of our intelligence or the Citizen Statesman whom we put into the Oval Office on November 8, 2016 and are about to reelect on November 3, 2020.
There is a reason why those of us who actually watch TV are spending more and more time on channels such as Circle, the Inspiration Channel, and MeTV:
The majority of modern television programs STINK ON ICE.
We would rather watch the old television programs which were actually entertaining…shows like Walker, Texas Ranger, The Virginian, Good Times, The Golden Girls…and even Lassie.
Come to think of it…when compared to y’all…Lassie was a better actor.

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump received a warm reception at Monday night’s national championship football game between Louisiana State University (LSU) and Clemson University.
The Trumps walked onto the field before the championship match at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans as their images appeared on the big boards in the arena before the National Anthem, causing the attendees to go wild.
Loud chants of “U-S-A” were heard throughout the stadium.
This marks President Trump’s second LSU game.
He attended a November match between the university’s Tigers and the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Trump’s presence at sporting events made several headlines last year.
Many people in the crowd booed him at Game 5 of the World Series between the Nationals and the Houston Astros in Washington, D.C., last October. He also got a mixed reception at a UFC match in New York City in early November.
He got booed in Washington, D.C. and New York City?
Say it isn’t so.
I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.
Why, it is almost like those cities are the Mecca of the Liberal Elite.
If you will take a look at the 20116 Electoral Map with those little enclaves of blue and the vast sea of red in the middle, you will understand why the President and the First Lady received those different responses at those sporting events.
The Far Left Democrats and their minions, the Main Stream Media, and the “Wokesheviks” (I coined a new term, Pretty cool, huh?) continue to politically distance themselves from average Americans.
When President Trump holds his MAGA Rallies, he tells average Americans that
“The Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges, they want to take away everything,”
And, he is exactly right.
Far Left Democrats, such as those in the Beltway and on the Left Coast, view themselves as superior to average Americans.
Back in June of last year, Washington Post national political correspondent Dave Weigel referred to President Trump’s supporters in no uncertain terms as “rubes” during an appearance on a left-wing podcast.
Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 with 46% of the vote.
Over two and one-half years into the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division is more cavernous as ever.
Those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, continue to support the man whom we elected to the most powerful office in the Free World…because he is not a politician…which makes the Far Left Democrats and the Vichy Republicans like Mitt Romney hate him even more.
Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to remove President Trump from office, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.
Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…
None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, photoshopped pictures, and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook designing to somehow add credence to the out-of-control actions of the Democrats on Capitol Hill are making any difference to average Americans.
The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue through their sheer arrogance and hatred for the traditional American Way of Life, to not only distance themselves from the people whom they continue to claim that they “love”…Average Working Class Americans, but to also attempt to take their Constitutional Freedoms away.
Yet still, they expect us to believe the false allegations which led to a House Vote to Impeach President Trump, even though the charges in the articles are non-impeachable offenses
Average Americans living between the coasts have recognized the Dems’ Dog and Pony Show for what it is: an unjustified push toward impeachment which they are desperately trying in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, which they are pushing through the Fake News Media and which Liberal Trolls are posting about as a fait de accompli on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and the rest of the “useful idiots”, in their shared madness, can somehow push one of their loser Primary Candidates over the finish line in 2020.
Americans do not care what the Far left Democratic Politicians on Capitol Hill and Main Stream Media “journalists” such as Dave Wiegel think.
To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even the Liberal Trolls who inhabit President Trump’s Twitter Account can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party and their minions in the MSM and on Social Media are no longer “evenly yoked”.
The Democrats have become the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who, as Dave Wiegel so clearly demonstrated, look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted in 2016 and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for 8 interminable years on November 8th, 2016.
The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as
the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.
Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Main Stream Media, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum?
Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate, which includes building a wall on our Southern Border, regardless what your highly inaccurate Democrat sample-heavy polls show.
And, average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom Democrats and the MSM “journalists” like Dave Wiegel continue to insult, ridicule, and threaten to disarm on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.
Because it is evident by what he has accomplished since he took office that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
And, as witnessed live last night, average Americans living between the the areas which I mentioned earlier, appreciate the President and what he has accomplished and is trying to get done.
Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President.
“Rube”, my hindquarters.
KEEP AMERICA GREAT 2020

While the Liberal Elite continue to try to stop President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN”, a 14 year old Maryland Girl was savagely raped by two over-aged ninth grade illegal barbarians in a high school restroom.
Foxnews.com reports that
Critics – including the White House – blamed the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl in a high school restroom by two much older immigrants students, at least one here illegally, on failed federal policies.
The horrific attack Thursday, in a Rockville, Md., high school was allegedly carried out by two immigrants, ages 17 and 18, who were enrolled in the ninth grade.
“This is a tragic event,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Tuesday. “It is horrendous and horrible and disgusting what the girl in Rockville went through.
“From an immigration standpoint, there are so many questions,” Spicer said. “[One of the suspects] was 18. How does that person get put into 9th grade?”
“Some have severe mental health problems resulting from broken families or parental neglect, exposure to violence in their home country, and a traumatic experience coming here illegally.”
– Jessica Vaughan, Center for Immigration Studies
Critics say the attack grimly underscores the challenge of enrolling upper-teen illegal immigrants with poor language skills in public schools. One suspect, identified by police as Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, had been caught crossing the Mexican border just months ago.
It was not immediately clear if the other suspect, Jose O. Montano, 17, from El Salvador, was in the county illegally but county executive Ike Leggett told local press both had outstanding ICE orders.
“The surge of Central American kids has become a significant problem in many of the school districts where they are allowed to re-settle,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies. “It’s not uncommon for older kids to be placed in the lower high school grades with much younger kids, because they usually have had only a few years of schooling in their home country.”
Sanchez-Milian, a native of Guatemala, and Jose O. Montano, 17, from El Salvador, were charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense. Court records say they dragged the girl into a men’s bathroom, where they allegedly violently raped, sodomized and forced her to perform oral sex in a stall.
It is common for that school system to have adults with limited English speaking skills enrolled as freshman, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Jack Smith told Fox 5 DC.
“We have a lot of 18-year-olds in our schools,” Smith said. “Our student was actually in a METS [Multidisciplinary Educational Training and Support] Program for English learners and that is a program we have across the system, and so, it is not a matter of what grade they were in, but the student was in a program for English learners.”
At a press conference Tuesday, Smith took aim at concerns raised by critics over immigration policies.
“While some have made this into an issue on immigration, we serve every student that walks in through every door,” he said. “We want to serve them because we know it would not be good for any child to go without an education.”
Smith told reporters the 18-year-old student was enrolled in a class alongside younger students because he was there to get the “best services for his needs,” adding there are a “great number” of 18-year-old students enrolled in district high schools with younger students. The school district does not do background checks, criminal or immigration, for students entering the system, according to Smith.
“We’re not going to paint all students with a broad brush because of a really terrible incident,” Smith said.
As a result of the attack, Smith said schools throughout the district are on “heightened alert” in regards to awareness of movements in buildings, but as far as explaining how the attack could have happened, information will come out “as the investigation progresses.”
Vaughan said other students and their parents have no way of knowing which classmates are illegal immigrants – in some cases adults – or what dangers they may pose.
“Some have severe mental health problems resulting from broken families or parental neglect, exposure to violence in their home country, and a traumatic experience coming here illegally,” Vaughan said.
Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department Special Victims Investigations Division arrested Montano and Sanchez after school officials reported the incident. A forensic team recovered blood and male fluids from the bathroom, court records show.
“It’s a terrible situation. It’s a horrible situation,” the superintendent told Fox5DC. “We looked at all the information from Thursday and we handed it over to the police immediately. At this point, it is their investigation.”
U.S. Department of Homeland Security databases show a Border Patrol agent stopped Sanchez in August 2016 in Rio Valley Grande, Texas, and determined he’d entered the country illegally from Mexico.
“We do have 555,001 cases through the end of Februrary pending before our courts, and our priorities are cases where the individual is still in detention,” said Kathryn Mattingly, of the Executive Office for Immigration Review at the Department of Justice. “Detained cases are our highest priority.”
Since Sanchez-Milian was released, he did not fall into that priority category. Still, the Border Patrol agent could have detained Sanchez-Milian and then sent him back across the border – but did not.
“If the Border Patrol intercepts somebody within 200 miles of the border, they have the ability to return the individual,” an official from Immigration and Customs Enforcement told Fox News. “But these individuals often claim fear of returning to their home country or desire some sort of judicial review for special reasons like asylum, or a special visa, so they ask for a right to see a border judge.”
Sanchez was ordered to appear before an immigration judge, but the hearing had not yet been scheduled.
ICE has since lodged an immigration detainer against Sanchez-Milian, so ICE can take him when he is released from local custody.
ICE did not release information on Montano. Both Montano and Sanchez will be tried as adults and could receive a life sentence. The judge who oversaw their bond hearing refused to release them on bail, because the students are “dangerous and flight risks.”
The Trump administration has made slashing the backlog of cases in immigration court a top priority. In some parts of the country, there is a three-year waiting list.
“We recognize that in order to reduce our immigration caseload we need to increase our hiring of immigration judges,” Mattingly said.
Officials in Montgomery County have been pushing to make the area a sanctuary for immigrants, and, according to Vaughan, is already uncooperative with ICE when it comes to illegal immigrants like Sanchez-Milian.
“Montgomery County is not the worst, but it’s pretty bad,” Vaughan said. “When Northern Virginia cracked down around 2005 from 2011, many illegals moved to Montgomery County, where they knew they would be treated more leniently.”
Montgomery County does not track crimes committed by illegal immigrants.
“This is not a statistic we track,” Maj. Michael England of the Rockville Police Department told Fox News.
Meanwhile, Maryland’s Republican governor, Larry Hogan, encouraged the county to cooperate with federal immigration agents.
“The State of Maryland is calling on Montgomery County to immediately and fully cooperate with all federal authorities during the investigation of this [alleged] heinous crime,” Hogan tweeted on Tuesday. “The public has a right to know how something this tragic and unacceptable was allowed to transpire in a public school.”
While most illegal immigrant kids enrolled at public schools do not pose a threat to their classmates, gang activity in school districts around the country has been linked to illegal immigration. On Long Island earlier this month, more than a dozen members of the El Salvadoran gang MS-13 were indicted in connection with seven murders in three years, including the deaths of several high school students last year.
Local communities’ refusal to cooperate with ICE, Vaughan said, means “many gang members and other thugs and miscreants are allowed to remain in the county in defiance of immigration laws and causing problems like this.”
Kids from Central America who cross the border illegally, without being vetted, may not have a criminal history here, but can in their country, said Claude Arnold, a former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations.
“These two could have gang ties in El Salvador and Guatemala or have an otherwise violent criminal history,” Arnold said. “Just like the thousands of other unaccompanied minors that have been released in the U.S. for the past several years, we know nothing about them.”
Over-aged illegal immigrants from Guatemala in our schools is nothing new.
On July 11, 2014, Newsmax.com reported that
Adult illegal immigrants are posing as unaccompanied minors to enroll in public high schools in Massachusetts, officials said Friday.
“Some of them have had gray hair, and they’re telling you that they’re 17 years old and they have no documentation,” Jamie Cerulli, the chief of staff for Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy of Lynn, Massachusetts, told The National Review. “If my children went to the public schools, I’d be very uncomfortable with all of these unaccompanied minors [that] are placed in the ninth grade.”
Catherine Latham, the school superintendent, said that foreign-student admissions have increased in the district by 500 since the 2010-11 school year. That includes illegal immigrants, refugees, and foreign nationals, the National Review reports.
Nearly 250 students came from Guatemala last school year — and 126 of them enrolled in the ninth grade, Latham said.
Located about 10 miles north of Boston, Lynn has a large Guatemalan population, she told the National Review. Many of the illegal immigrants who arrive there from the Central American country come from the city of San Marcos.
The National Review obtained information and images from the Department of Homeland Security on two illegal immigrants in Lynn who have registered for high school using questionable data.
Isai and Candelaria — whose full names were withheld — are enrolled in the ninth grade and are expected to attend classes this fall, Latham told the National Review.
Latham said that when possible age discrepancies arise, city officials visit the homes of those in question and try to verify age and other information.
She told the National Review of a case in which a relative of an illegal immigrant who registered for school as a “child” was identified by a relative as being 30 to 35 years old.
Heck, they have already entered our country illegally, why should illegally registering for High School bother them?
Believe or not, a legendary Democrat Leader agreed with the Trump Administration on what should be done with those who have broken our laws by entering our Sovereign Nation illegally.
The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform happened during President ill “Bubba” Clinton’s tenure. Bubba appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:
Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.
So, why are these Democratic Mayors refusing to abide by our nation’s laws by vowing to continue to HARBOR FUGITIVES?
The cis, Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in their incessant push to grant blanket amnesty to Illegal Aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.
What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.
And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.
And, they are committing crimes against American Citizens, including rape and murder.
There is no excuse for what happened to that young girl in that school in Maryland.
Securing our border and the deportation of illegal immigrants are in no way human rights issues.
They are safety issues.
And, the shared guilt for those crimes committed by those here illegally against American Citizens rests squarely on the shoulders of those Liberal Activists ad Politicians who are standing in the way of their deportation.

Texas, it starts with you!
2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.
Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.
Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.
A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.
Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.
And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!
What does The Motor City Madman have to do with Greg Abbott, you ask? Well, besides the fact that they are both Great American Conservatives, Uncle Ted appeared with Texas Attorney General and Gubernatorial Candidate Abbott the other day, where, per usual, he spoke his mind…and got Liberals’ knickers in a twist…giving them an excuse for their usual outrageous outrage…as politico.com reports…
Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott says Ted Nugent is accompanying him on the trail to expose Wendy Davis’s weakness on gun rights.
Abbott, who has come under fire for campaigning with the controversial rocker, told reporters at an event in North Texas on Tuesday that his opponent was “suffering” for her views on the Second Amendment, and that Nugent would help voters see her as a flip-flopper. He also said Davis’s association with President Barack Obama was a bigger turn-off to Texans than his sharing the stage with Nugent.
“Sen. Davis knows she is suffering with voters because of her flipping and flopping on 2nd Amendment gun laws, and she knows that Ted Nugent calls her out on her disregard for Second Amendment rights,” Abbott said, according to a Dallas Morning News report. “We are going to expose Sen. Davis’s weaknesses on the Second Amendment and show that in this area and in so many other areas, she represents the liberalism of Barack Obama that is so bad for Texas.”
Davis has said she would support an “open carry” law in Texas, expanding current gun laws to match Abbott’s views.
Nugent is an outspoken gun rights advocate, who once suggested he would either be “dead or in jail” if Obama were reelected in 2012. He has come under sharp criticism for once calling Obama a “subhuman mongrel.”
Speaking at a campaign event, Nugent introduced Abbott as his “friend” and “blood brother,” as well as “the epitome of what our founding fathers wanted as a representative,” according to the San Antonio Express.
“We don’t have to question Greg Abbott’s courage — because he invited me here today,” he said.
The Liberal Elite are always offended when an American Conservative “speaks the truth and shames the Devil”.
And, with them running such a political lightweight as Wendy Davis in Texas as their Gubernatorial Candidate, they realize that they are going to have to pull out all the stops, including going Full Alinsky, by initiating Rule #12 from “Rules for Radicals” :
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
By targeting Ted Nugent, the Liberal Elite are trying to put pressure on Abbott to apologize for the “harsh” words of the Heavy Metal Icon.
Evidently, the Democrats think that the Attorney General will roll over like a puppy who wants his belly rubbed, a la John Boehner and the rest of the Vichy Republicans, up in the Beltway.
To use a Southern idiom, since Greg Abbott is a Son of Dixie, as am I, the Liberal Elite are as goofy as a pet ‘coon, if they think that the Texas Attorney General is going to sacrifice Fellow Conservative Ted Nugent, to the Gods of Liberal Propaganda.
They keep this smear campaign up and the Republican Gubernatorial Candidate will soon remind those “Nattering Nabobs of Negativity” why
You Don’t Mess With Texas.
