Trump Administration Launches ICE Crackdown In NJ, Elsewhere

In shared news:

“Today’s filed lawsuit presents important legal issues concerning whether the directive’s prohibitions and restrictions on information sharing and basic cooperation with federal officials violate the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution,” Carpenito said.

I don’t know how it is now but it used to be that ICE detainers or ICE would be informed only if an illegal immigrant committed a felony or serious misdemeanor. In Arizona, police were detaining people if they thought they were illegal during traffic stops, which we all know, the light was yellow, not red. So the question is, does it violate the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution if local law enforcement does not inform ICE when dealing with immigrants? The law also clearly states that the only person that can determine citizenship is an Immigration Agent. That being said, why would local law enforcement try to determine someone’s residency requirements during anything that would not put them away for more than a year? The law is funny and trying to interpret the law, which seems to shift depending who is arguing it, can be tricky. If the law clearly dictates that local Law Enforcement can not determine citizenship and that is only left to immigration agents, then isn’t New Jersey following the law? The law also states that, if a person commits a felony, than that person’s residency needs to be established, for purposes of trial, that’s when Immigration Agents now can file that detainer. So anything short of serious misdemeanor, like domestic violence, there should be no need for ICE to be involved. That’s just my opinion. That in itself is troublesome because what will happen is that ladies or men are going to get hit and they are not going to report it because of fear of deportation. So, I believe the standard should be a felony, so women or men can report abusive spouses.

Chancla

I respect all Hispanic mothers because I have one and I love her and so does my son but also because that chancla would go Matrix and bend corners and smack me upside the head when I didn’t. Feliz Cumpleanos mama…. Don’t forget to kiss your mom on her birthday to show her how much you respect women.

 

SANCTUARY CITIES

sanctuary cities

Across the U.S. there are sanctuary cities that protect illegal immigrants, mostly Hispanics from abusive immigration laws. The problem with these sanctuary cities is that they don’t enforce the law, any of them. The likelihood of one of these immigrants becoming a victim of  a serious crime are higher, as are the chances that the crime will not be investigated. We give into these sanctuary cities only to be abused by other methods. It’s a double edged sword of getting cheap labor for the luxury of avoiding deportation and not being able to take advantage of the amenities that this country has to offer. Illegal immigrants are most likely to get sexually assaulted, become victims of violent crimes and have no outlet providing them protection due to the fact that people view them as non-tax payers that aren’t afforded these protections due to their status. What you have is these people that tell you can stay but only if you do what I say. So I don’t know if I would call them sanctuary cities as much as I would call them cattle farms.

If the State were to charge them State tax and allow them to have all the amenities that they give their regular citizens, like New York presently is by allowing them to get driver’s licenses, then you might have a recipe for something that could work. Trust me when I say that these people would be the most law abiding citizens there are.

This blog is not an opinion. This comes from personal experience of being a Hispanic immigrant and former LEO and having a Hispanic immigrant family that had problems with the immigration process, won’t go any further.

MPO: ITS WHETHER YOU ARE GOOD MORALLY

Sodom and Gomorrah

I find it funny how people interpret things. If there is one truth is that evil knows the bible as good as anyone and will twist its teaching for its own perverse intention. For ages people have depicted Sodom and Gomorrah as retribution for homosexuality. That is a twist on what the bible truly intended. Sodom and Gomorrah was actually depicting the dangers of being unfaithful and promiscuity as people, hetero and homo, were killed in that parable. I don’t care what your sexuality is, I just care that you are a good person and being faithful to your loved one is a sign of good moral character. God doesn’t teach you to hate because you don’t like the same things, he teaches you understanding and compassion. At the same time we understand that a person that cannot remain faithful to the person they love will not remain faithful to anyone and only cares about themselves. So as for any comments on Mr. Buttigieg’s personal life, the only question should be, are you faithful to your husband? The rest is none of our business. If there is a God, he will judge your choices and if there isn’t, then what the hell are you complaining about. Personally, I believe in God and I don’t think he gives a damn about whether you are Homosexual or Heterosexual, only that you are good person.

BOXING: GARCIA, LINARES

garcia linares

Great night of fighting on DAZN as Jorge Linares dispatched of his opponent Morales, a durable fighter that has never been KO’ed until now, with a short right hand, the signature punch of Linares. Linares did not come away unscathed as he suffered some cuts.

Ryan Garcia, the anglo first name and Hispanic surname phenom of the Golden Boy stables, was poised and showed why, even though he doesn’t hold a major belt……yet… he is a force to be reckoned with. At 21 and to have that kind of timing and power in his left hook is pretty amazing. Timing comes with confidence and you can see that Ryan has that in abundance. Garcia dispatched his opponent in devastating fashion, a very appropriate phrase, given that Fonseca seemed to be unconscious prior to hitting the canvas.

The next fight for these talented fighters is against each other. While the advantage is seemingly for Garcia, Linares is fighting for relevance so he will definitely come with everything. I saw Devin Haney in the ring requesting to be next. Mr. Haney, who throws his power right by reaching behind his right ear, is a perfect candidate for Garcia. His wins over Garcia in the amateurs don’t translate to the pros where the gloves are way lighter and you aren’t wearing head gear. Haney’s flaws are perfect for Garcia to exploit. I say to him, Mr. Haney, watch what you ask for, you might just get it.

anEcdote!

stop and frisk

I used to do stop and frisk. I used to stop the Bank of America guys and take their pens so they couldn’t sign the reverse mortgage policies. You should have seen them cry. I used to yell at them “What shitty policies that ruin peoples lives are you going to sign with this pen”. And they would cry and say I don’t know how that got there, it isn’t mine. The problem is that you don’t need a background check to buy a pen.

Mont Blanc, destroyed more lives than any war. And for the record, I don’t think Bloomberg is a racist. I think he took the recommendations that were given without fully exploring the outcome or what it entailed and once he was in, he felt that he had to protect those recommendations.

IT’S THE END OF AN ERA (A SHORT ERA)

yang

As Andrew Yang closes out his bid for the Presidency, he will be sorely missed. As one of the few voices that had true insight and didn’t just blame his opponent for everything, Andrew showed something that is completely rare in the days of high tech gadgetry, common sense. It’s funny that common sense is as rare these days as a solar eclipse. Mr. Yang should not put his head down. He outlasted several highly regarded contenders, all by seeing the problem for what it is and finding practical solutions. If I were the top three candidates, I would be seeking Mr. Yang’s endorsement because, even though he didn’t get the nod, he has shown that he has the right answers. And if I were Mr. Yang, I wouldn’t just give his endorsement to just anyone but the person he truly feels will make the best candidate. A lot of people will be watching to see who he chooses.
