Rep. Bennie Thompson letter to DHS Secreatry Kirstjen Nielsen on “the Wall” (04.01.2019)
I write what I like.
Now the that United States of America, the US Government officially pulled out of the United National Global Compact on Migration. This happens as the Phase 1 of negotiations are going on and the 24 elements was agreed upon in the New York Declaration. Which are elements that are vital for working of security, stability and human rights for the migrants, as stated as this: “improving cooperation in this regard between countries of origin and destination.” (Global Compact on Migration, 13.03.2017).
So now that the International Community at large are going into Phase II: “Phase 2, Stock-taking. After the consultations, there will be an intergovernmental stock-taking conference in Guadalajara, Mexico, in early December, where inputs from the consultations will be presented and discussed, then consolidated as the basis for a draft. The co-facilitators– the Swiss and Mexican governments– will produce a first draft of the Global Compact on Safe, Regular and Orderly Migration by February 2018 which will be the basis for the intergovernmental negotiations culminating in the compact (Phase 3). Negotiations should be concluded by the end of July ahead of the September conference” (Global Compact on Migration, 13.03.2017).
This meaning that the elements and pillars of rights for migration and co-operations between states will be set by the paradigm made by the consultations and previous declarations. Clearly, the United States don’t want to participate or even set agenda for positive change. They want to become a pariah state. The United States under President Donald J. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions are planning to become hated worldwide, to a level even President George W. Bush didn’t even achieve. By the way, that is impressive.
Why I dislike the pulling out of the United States in the UN Global Compact, is for the simple reason. They are involved in so many conflicts, they are trading so much arms and weapons worldwide. That the ones that are a warlord, are a supporter of conflicts and is initiating it too. Should take responsibility and actually make sure the refugees and the migrants from crisis are getting a new home. That should make sense for all. The US Army has troops in Somalia, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Poland, Ukraine, Niger, Japan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Spain, South Sudan, Estonia, Norway, South Korea, Israel and Bahrain.
So the US Army and Navy are stationed everywhere and has bases all over the globe. They are even involved and has Guam, who has been in the spotlight in the fist-fight between North Korean President Kim Yung-Un and President Trump. What is also worrying and hard to know is the estimates of trade of arms and weapons to all parts of the world. This also small-arms, fighter-planes and equipment that used to keep both allies and undemocratic regimes in power. Either for internal conflicts or for loyalty to the US. Therefore, the creation of UN Compact is so important to put migration and refugees in center, as they are fleeing conflicts in their homes and nations to get to safety. That is why the world has to make sure they have provisions and plans to shelter these individuals. They deserve better, especially from the United States.
The world cannot trust the Trump Administration, neither their actions. They should stop dropping drone attacks world-wide. They should stop supporting the Saudi Arabia’s attacks in Yemen. Their bombings in Somalia. Their initial warfare in Afganistan, they shouldn’t be involved around the Lake Chad and Nigeria, Cameroon and Sahel Region. They are just creating more refugees and migrants. While they have no honor and no pride, to actually shelter them and make sure there is international laws to cover their hurt. We know that now, Nikki Haley and the US Government has decided so.
The bravery and the proud American state is failing. The next Banana Republic with huge debt and deficit. Cannot take of their own poor and now want to make sure they are not friendly with the international community and taking responsibility for their actions. We know that now, the US is irresponsible and irrational. The Trump Administration can screw themselves in the oval office in Washington. We cannot trust the Americans anymore, they are just thinking about themselves and not about the greater good. United States is a selfish state who don’t take responsibility and that should be sanctioned, like they sanctions others. Peace.
Some would think that Five Executive Orders on Immigration would be enough, even if only two of them is signed already, yet another leaks from the White House, which proves the hatred in the Alt-Right Government for the foreign workers and immigrants arriving in the United States of America. Republican Party under President Donald J. Trump will be unfriendly to anyone who doesn’t fit his perimeter of decent vetted immigrants. So with that in mind, there been another one. Just like DJ Khaled, here is another one!
“Sec. 2. Policy. It is the policy of the executive branch to:
“(b) Make use of all available systems and resources to ensure the efficient and faithful execution of the immigration laws of the United States;
(c) Ensure that jurisdictions that fail to comply with applicable Federal law do not receive Federal funds, except as mandated by law;
(d) Ensure that aliens ordered removed from the United States are promptly removed; and
(e) Support victims, and the families of victims, of crimes committed by removable aliens” (White House, 2017).
The ones that will be sorted out by this executive order:
“(a) Have been convicted of any criminal offense;
(b) Have been charged with any criminal offense, where such charge has not been resolved;
(c) Have committed acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense;
(d) Have engaged in fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter or application before a governmental agency;
(e) Have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits;
(f) Are subject to a final order of removal, but who have not complied with their legal obligation to depart the United States; or
(g) In the judgment of an immigration officer, otherwise pose a risk to public safety or national security” (White House, 2017).
As there we’re another one where the Aliens and Immigrants we’re not supposed to be a “public-charge”, here if they ever stole a bottle of milk or has committed wrongful parking, they can be deported. Certainly the drug-dealers and drug transporters through Arizona, New Mexico and Texas will be taken, but there are others who have committed less crimes and less of frauds than the President himself. The clear definition if they are has committed crimes, they are deemed to be seen as illegal criminals. Therefore the Trump Administration can give them a FINAL ORDER of REMOVAL, which by all definition means deporting the fellow human being from the Republic.
Just to make sure the State has people enough to deport them:
“Sec. 7. Additional Enforcement and Removal Officers. The Secretary, through the Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, shall, to the extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations, take all appropriate action to hire 10,000 additional immigration officers, who shall complete relevant training and be authorized to perform the law enforcement functions described in section 287 of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1357)” (White House, 2017).
Because 10,000 Federal Deportation Force will bring back the good old days, where they will start up their own Deportation Agency and find the aliens in their homes and get them evicted. First detained, registered and then sent away to where they fled from. Even if US Government does this, it will be own system of oppression as of who is the rightful alien and who is the subject that the U.S. government can remove.
“Sec. 9. Sanctuary Jurisdictions. It is the policy of the executive branch to ensure, to the fullest extent of the law, that a State, or a political subdivision of a State, shall comply with 8 U.S.C. 1373.
(a) In furtherance of this policy, the Attorney General and the Secretary, in their discretion and to the extent consistent with law, shall ensure that jurisdictions that willfully refuse to comply with 8 U.S.C. 1373 (sanctuary jurisdictions) are not eligible to receive Federal grants, except as deemed necessary for law enforcement purposes by the Attorney General or the Secretary. The Secretary has the authority to designate, in his discretion and to the extent consistent with law, a jurisdiction as a sanctuary jurisdiction. The Attorney General shall take appropriate enforcement action against any entity that violates 8 U.S.C. 1373, or which has in effect a statute, policy, or practice that prevents or hinders the enforcement of Federal law.
(b) To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens.
(c) The Director of the Office of Management and Budget is directed to obtain and provide relevant and responsive information on all Federal grant money that currently is received by any sanctuary jurisdiction” (White House, 2017).
So with this in mind, the ones who don’t follow Attorney General Orders and will sanction the state that does not comply with the new regulation and law concerning deportation of aliens. So they cannot get federal grants for security and law enforcement in the states that don’t follow procedure. The State and Federal State will from now on inform the public on the comprehensive list of illegal activity that the aliens are doing.
The Immigrants and Aliens are the one they are searching for indeed, when seeing this:
“Sec. 14. Privacy Act. Agencies shall, to the extent consistent with applicable law, ensure that their privacy policies exclude persons who are not United States citizens or lawful permanent residents from the protections of the Privacy Act regarding personally identifiable information” (White House, 2017).
United States Citizens or lawful permanent residents are the one not connected with this Executive Order. The U.S. Government can and will use identifiable information to inform the public of the existence of aliens and immigrations, illegal and the ones who are criminal intent on U.S. soil. These are the ones that new 10,000 deportation force agency is working to use the new applicable law.
The 10,000 officers will also secure this:
“Sec. 16. Transparency. To promote the transparency and situational awareness of criminal aliens in the United States, the Secretary and the Attorney General are hereby directed to collect relevant data and provide quarterly reports on the following:
(a) the immigration status of all aliens incarcerated under the supervision of the Federal Bureau of Prisons;
(b) the immigration status of all aliens incarcerated as Federal pretrial detainees under the supervision of the United States Marshals Service; and
(c) the immigration status of all convicted aliens incarcerated in State prisons and local detention centers throughout the United States” (White House, 2017).
So with that in mind, the Attorney General will also make sure all Aliens and Immigrants in prison are reported off, surely for the purpose of deportation. Not to make sure they could be a positive influence on society. If that was the cause and reason, they would not be singled out so significantly and also punishing the states with less federal grants for law enforcement if they didn’t comply with the Executive Order.
With this in mind, this is the Executive or President Trump keeping another promise. If it is any good or justified, I don’t think so. The beneficiary of this one will not be law enforcement or the states. The black-market and industries benefitting from illegal immigrants are the ones hiring day-to-day farm labour and other businesses, these will lack the uneducated workforce that they have today. This might give work to more America citizens; still this is low-payed jobs without unions and is rapid, seasonal even. Low payed that are based on tips and not hourly paid. Would the American public go for these, when they are used to aliens and immigrants taking them so they don’t have to. Peace.
White House – ‘ENHANCING PUBLIC SAFETY IN THE INTERIOR OF THE UNITED STATES’ (25.01.2017)
There are already out three Executive Orders that are implying and pampering ideas of fear of immigration and the ones that are coming to America can only become Public-Charge and birth-tourism from Mariana Islands. These together with the closed doors to nations of concern, proves the Executive of United States have put into play substantial procedures that effects not only the Republic, but also the escalated hard-line towards refugees. Will make the progression of the economic recovery of the United States, but that is not something the President Donald Trump is thinking of. Therefore this new Executive Order come into play after the other two proposed Executive Orders, as well as the one that already creating chaos and issues for refugees in Syria and Somalia. As well, as the citizens of United States with double citizenship, which come from countries that put on hold by the Executive Order signed earlier this year in January.
Here is some key point from yet another anti-Immigration Executive Order:
“The visa-issuance process plays a crucial role in detecting individuals with terrorist ties and stopping them from entering the United States. Perhaps in no instance was that more apparent than the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, when State Department policy prevented consular officers from properly scrutinizing the visa applications of several of the 19 foreign nationals who went on to murder nearly 3,000 Americans. And while the visa-issuance process was reviewed and amended after the September 11 attacks to better detect would-be terrorists from receiving visas, these measures did not stop attacks by foreign nationals who were admitted to the United States”.
“It is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from foreign nationals who intend to commit terrorist attacks in the United States; and to prevent the admission of foreign nationals who intend to exploit United States immigration laws for malevolent purposes”.
“Suspension of Issuance of Visas and Other Immigration Benefits to Nationals of Countries of Particular Concern. (a) The Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence, shall immediately conduct a review to determine the information needed from any country to adjudicate any visa, admission, or other benefit under the INA (adjudications) in order to determine that the individual seeking the benefit is who the individual claims to be and is not a security or public-safety threat”.
“Realignment of the US. Refugee Admissions Program for Fiscal Year 2017. (a) The Secretary of State shall suspend the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for 120 days. During the 120-day period, the Secretary of State, in conjunction with the Secretary of Homeland Security and in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence, shall review the USRAP application and adjudication process to determine what additional procedures should be taken to ensure that those approved for refugee admission do not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States, and shall implement such additional procedures. Refugee applicants who are already in the USRAP process may be admitted upon the initiation and completion of these revised procedures”.
“(c) Pursuant to section 212(t) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(t), I hereby proclaim that the entry of nationals of Syria as refugees is detrimental to the interests of the United States and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the USRAP to ensure that admission of Syrian refugees is consistent with the national interest”.
“(d) Pursuant to section 212(t) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(t), I hereby proclaim that the entry of more than 50,000 refugees in fiscal year 2017 would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I determine that additional admissions would be in the national interest”.
So if you we’re thinking that President Trump and his administration we’re done with the planned starch rules to stop the immigration and refugees entering the Republic. You we’re very wrong. The Trump Administration is now using the terror threat to stop Syrian refugees entering the U.S. States and U.S. government. United States if they are taking the next steps, they are suspending even more Visa-Programs and Refugee entering programs.
This will interfere with the USRAP will even be suspended and reviewed as the Trump Administration wants it to be extended and made sure no one that could be threat enters. Even as the internal violence in the United States are mostly U.S. citizens from birth who has easy access to guns. But the Gun-loving Conservative President doesn’t want to look into gun-laws or restrictions of it. Because it is only foreign refugees that can do violence, not the ones that are carrying guns bigger than Rambo and shooting up schools now and then. That doesn’t need an Executive Order. Just the ones fleeing wars and needs the International Community to offer safety and shelter!
That the Syrians are now on the second Executive Order is singled out and suspended, as they are being in another proposed order to be placed in safe-zones if the U.S. Government under Trump get their will. The other proposed parts of this bill is to vet the refugees and programs as they think they can single out directly who is terrorist before they enters the U.S. territory. If it was that easy, the other nations in the West would have had that put in their legislation already and made sure the refugees that we’re radical weren’t allowed to enter their dominions. So Trump Administration thinks they can outsmart with more strict regulation and less entry to nation.
So the rampant attack on refugees, immigration will continue and the ones fleeing from war-zones will suffer, as the United States that took 96,000 refugees last year (2016), will if this order is signed and official procedure they will only accept 50,000 in 2017. That is a substantial cut of people and also lacking responsibility of a war-hungry nation as the United States. That just recently man-handled and killed a dozens of civilians in Yemen, another nation who is on the list of no-entry to the United States. This show the Alt-Right hatred of the world, while demoralizing fellow allies; all of this will weaken the progress and possible healing of civil-wars and rebuilding of these communities. That even President Trump could more easily fix, instead he continues the suffering and will add more hatred of the United States as they bring guns and kills, but does not help in the hour of need. That is what the world will remember of this so-called Christian President.
I would not be surprised if President Trump signs this as well with a lavish small ceremony like the other Executive Orders. They are like signed tweets like Bill Maher said in one of his show on HBO recently. Peace.
