Jeb Bush’s immigration stance not in sync with Americans: Donald Trumphttp://minutemanproject.com/jeb-bushs-immigration-stance-not-in-sync-with-americans-donald-trump/ http://minutemanproject.com/jeb-bushs-immigration-stance-not-in-sync-with-americans-donald-trump/#respond Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:47:40 +0000 http://minutemanproject.com/?p=9199 Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump says former Florida Governor Jeb Bush does not understand the issue of border security, adding that he is out of touch with Americans. “Today, Jeb Bush once again proves that he is out of touch with the American people,” Trump said in a statement issued on Saturday night. “Just […]]]>

Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump says former Florida Governor Jeb Bush does not understand the issue of border security, adding that he is out of touch with Americans.

“Today, Jeb Bush once again proves that he is out of touch with the American people,” Trump said in a statement issued on Saturday night.

“Just like the simple question asked of Jeb on Iraq — where it took him five days and multiple answers to get right — he doesn’t understand anything about the border or border security,” he said.

“In fact, Jeb believes illegal immigrants who break our laws when they cross our border come ‘out of love,'” Trump added.

During his presidential campaign announcement on June 16, billionaire businessman and reality television star Trump emphasized the need to curtail immigration from the southern border and slammed Mexican immigrants for “bringing crime” to the US.

Bush, the GOP frontrunner whose wife was born in Mexico, said on Saturday that he was personally offended by Trump’s “ugly” remarks.

“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think,” Bush said after attending Fourth of July parades in Amherst and Merrimack, New Hampshire.

Trump accused Bush of distorting his remarks about Hispanic immigrants.

“Jeb is only mischaracterizing my statements to inflame,” he said. “As everybody knows, I never said that all Mexicans crossing the border are rapists.”

“I am very proud to be fighting for a strong and secure border,” Trump added.

“This is a very important issue which all the other candidates would have ignored had I not started this important discussion,” he continued.

In spite of criticism from Republicans and companies threatening to cut business ties with Trump, he has defended his controversial comments.

He told Fox News on Friday that the alleged shooting death of a 32-year-old woman by an immigrant in San Francisco was one more example of why America must secure its borders.

“This is an absolutely disgraceful situation and I am the only one that can fix it. Nobody else has the guts to even talk about it,” he said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he is personally offended by rival Donald Trump’s recent remarks about Mexico and immigrants and calls the remarks far outside the mainstream of Republican thought.

“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think,” Bush told reporters after marching in Fourth of July parades in Amherst and Merrimack, New Hampshire.

“No one suggests that we shouldn’t control our borders – everybody has a belief that we should control our borders,” he said. “But to make these extraordinarily ugly kind of comments is not reflective of the Republican Party. Trump is wrong on this.”

Bush’s wife was born in Mexico, and when he was asked if he took Trump’s remarks personally, he responded: “Yeah, of course. Absolutely. And a lot of other people as well.”

When Trump announced his presidential bid last month, he criticized Mexico and immigrants who come to the U.S. illegally. “They’re bringing drugs,” he said. “They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

In spite of earlier criticism from Bush and other Republicans and companies moving to cut business ties to Trump, the real estate mogul has defended his remarks.

July 04– Donald Trump, who declared during his presidential campaign announcement that Mexican immigrants were rapists and killers, took to Twitter on Friday to use San Francisco’s fatal shooting at Pier 14 to once again slam illegal immigration and call for stronger border control.

Trump tweeted out his “heartfelt condolences” to Kate Steinle and her family. Steinle, 32, was shot and killed Wednesday by 45-year-old Francisco Sanchezwhile she was walking with her father and a family friend along the pier.

Sanchez, who had five times been deported, was released in April after a judge dismissed drug charges against him. Before his release, U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcements officials requested they be notified about his release so they could take him into custody.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump called out fellow Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio about border control, saying “What do you say to the family ofKathryn Steinle in CA who was viciously killed b/c we can’t secure our border? Stand up for US.”

Trump also tweeted a linked to a Washington Times story about the killing, following it up with “We need a wall!”

In recent weeks, several organizations and networks have cut ties with the Donald after his comments on Mexican immigrants, among them NBC, which used to air the Miss USA pageant. However, the network recently announced it would no longer do so after it fired Trump. The pageant, co-owned by Trump, was later picked up by Reelz Channel.

Austin, United States, Jul 3 (EFE).- U.S. border patrol officers Thursday arrested 11 illegal immigrants, hiding among sacks of onions in the trailer of a truck, traveling through southern Texas, near the Mexican border.

“Upon further inspection, agents found 11 undocumented immigrants concealed between pallets of onions with no means of escape in the event of an emergency,” the Border Patrol said in a statement without revealing the nationality of the immigrants.

A patrol dog alerted the officers of possible irregularities in the truck, prompting an inspection.

The driver of the vehicle, a U.S. citizen, was also arrested.

The incident occurred at the Falfurrias checkpoint, one of the points where the U.S. Border Patrol is stationed within the country, to detect illegal activities. EFE

By Katie Nelson, San Jose Mercury News

July 03– SAN FRANCISCO — The man accused of fatally shooting former Pleasanton resident Kate Steinle in the back Wednesday on Pier 14 had recently been released from jail despite having been deported five times and having immigration authorities ask that he be held.

Francisco Sanchez, 45, has a long rap sheet, including seven felony convictions, and was last deported in 2009. He most recently served time in federal prison for felony re-entry to the country. On March 26, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials turned Sanchez over to the San Francisco Police Department on an outstanding drug warrant stemming from a case with the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.

After handing Sanchez over, ICE officials issued a detainer and asked that they be notified if or when he was released so they could make arrangements to take him back into their custody, agency spokeswoman Virginia Kice said.

“The detainer was not honored,” Kice said.

San Francisco is a “sanctuary city,” meaning no city official is required to turn over illegal immigrants simply because immigration officials want them to. As such, San Francisco does not honor ICE detainers, and according city officials, ICE needs to issue warrants or court orders to keep anyone in custody.

The unraveling surrounding Sanchez’s release began the day after he was handed over to SFPD. On March 27, a San Francisco Superior Court judge dismissed charges of possession and distribution of marijuana against Sanchez. He was held in jail for two more weeks, according to Freya Horne, legal counsel for the San Francisco Sheriff’s Office. During that time, Horne said sheriff’s deputies checked with federal prison officials to make sure that Sanchez did not have any holds.

None came up in the prison system, she said.

So, Sanchez, who is a citizen of Mexico, was released on April 15.

“They are well aware of our policy, and it’s a policy that is being adopted by municipalities across the state and the country,” Horne said.

ICE officials could have “easily issued a court order” and said sheriff’s officials had “no legal basis” to hold Sanchez after his case was dismissed, Horne said.

Horne said she could not say if law enforcement officials had any contact with Sanchez in the past.

On Wednesday, Sanchez was arrested roughly one mile south of Pier 14 in the shooting death of Steinle, 32, a San Francisco woman who grew up inPleasanton and graduated from Amador Valley High School.

Steinle had been walking with her father and a family friend when she was shot once in the back just after 6 p.m.

The killing, police said, appeared to be random. The gunshot pierced Steinle’s aorta, her mother said, and Jim Steinle, the woman’s father, tried to give her CPR as she lay wounded on the ground.

“She said, ‘Dad, help me, help me,” said Liz Sullivan, Steinle’s mother, when reached by phone. “She was so young. This is just like a bad dream.”

Steinle was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital where she later died.

Message from Jim Gilchrist

According to the media thugs at NBC, Mr. Trump may have “angered Hispanics and civil rights groups” with his candid comments about the reckless disregard for U.S. immigration law promoted by equally reckless politicians and their anti rule-of-law minions.

However, NBC avoided mentioning how elated an overwhelming majority of real Americans and immigration and law enforcement advocates were to hear a presidential candidate actually make a serious issue about a national dilemma that the Democrats and many Republicans have cowardly ignored, and selfishly encouraged, over the past four decades.

I think Donald Trump would be the long overdue catalyst for change our nation’s political representation seriously needs if we are to remain a civilized society and a global economic power.

How about Donald Trump as president and Carly Fiorina as vice president? Just wondering.  How about some feed back?

That combo seems like a unique powerhouse…a powerhouse that would lead our nation back to the kind of nation we used to be proud of…that some of us even volunteered to fight for in combat…that most of us felt we were a part of…a nation that was once unified.

Ann Coulter deconstructs the media frenzy to demonize Donald Trump’s comments on illegal immigration during his presidential announcement.

Coulter notes nothing in the media criticism resembles refuting the facts about illegal immigrants and their crime rates.

Then Coulter drops the truth bomb on the illegal immigrant backers and their deliberate attempts to hide the scope and scale of illegal immigrant crime:

In other words, the government hasn’t the first idea how many prisoners are legal immigrants, illegal immigrants or anchor babies.

But there are clues! Only about a quarter of California inmates are white, according to a major investigative piece in The Atlantic last year — and that includes criminals convicted in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, when the vast majority of California’s population was either black or white.

Do immigration enthusiasts imagine that more than 75 percent of the recent convicts are African-American? Blacks have high crime rates, but they make up only about 6 percent of California’s entire population.

A casual perusal of the “Most Wanted” lists also suggests that the government may not have our best interests in mind when deciding who gets to live in America.

Here is the Los Angeles Police Department’s list of “Most Wanted” criminal suspects:

– Jesse Enrique Monarrez (murder),

– Cesar Augusto Nistal (child molestation),

– Jose A. Padilla (murder),

– Demecio Carlos Perez (murder),

– Ramon Reyes (robbery and murder),

– Victor Vargas (murder),

– Ruben Villa (murder)

The full “Most Wanted” list doesn’t get any better.

 

Coulter then gives us the graphic details about the illegal immigration crime wave the media refuse to report.

The rate of rape in Mexico is even higher than in India, according to Professor Carlos Javier Echarri Canovas of El Colegio de Mexico. A report from the Inter-American Children’s Institute explains that in Latin America, women and children are “seen as objects instead of human beings with rights and freedoms.”

All peasant cultures have non-progressive views on women, but Latin America happens to have the peasant culture that’s closest to the United States.

 

The only reason our newspapers aren’t chockablock with reports of Latino sexual predators is that they are too busy broadcasting hoax news stories about non-existent gang-rapes by white men: the Duke lacrosse team (Crystal Gail Mangum), University of Virginia fraternity members (Jackie Coakley) and military contractors in Iraq (Jamie Leigh Jones).

 

In fact, the main way we find out about Hispanic rapists is when the media report on dead or missing girls — hoping against hope that the case will never be solved or the perp will turn out to look like the rapists on “Law and Order.” When it turns out to be another Latino rapist, that fact is aggressively suppressed by the media.

 

New Yorkers were horrified by the case of “Baby Hope,” a 4-year-old girl whose raped and murdered body turned up in an Igloo cooler off of the Henry Hudson Parkway in 1991. After a 20-year investigation, the police finally captured her rapist/murderer in 2003. It was Conrado Juarez, an illegal alien from Mexico, who disposed of the girl’s body with the help of his illegal alien sister.

 

Coulter concludes with this key truth:

No wonder the media is sputtering at Trump. He broke the embargo on unpleasant facts about what our brilliant immigration policies are doing to the country.

According to data from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), approximately 128 unaccompanied alien children (UACs) were apprehended at the Southern Border every single day in the month of May:

According to the data, May was the month with the most UAC apprehensions since the start of Fiscal Year 2015 on Oct. 1.

The monthly totals of apprehended UACs have been steadily increasing since January, when 2,119 children were caught at the U.S.-Mexico border. Since then, another 2,388 children were apprehended in February, 3,131 were apprehended in March, and 3,275 were apprehended in April.

In total, 3,965 children were caught attempting to cross the border in May. It doesn’t seem like Obama’s Central American Minors Refugee/Parole Program (CAM) is working:

Marketed as an effort to help Latin American children avoid the dangerous and sometimes fatal journey to enter the United States illegally, the program was set up throughout Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to reunite children living in those countries with their parents who live, many of them illegally, in the United States.

Children who do not qualify as “refugees” under the legal federal definition may be granted discretionary parole into the United States on a case-by-case basis.

The program was one of a number of sweeping reforms to the U.S. immigration system set up under an executive order by President Barack Obama last year. Under CAM guidelines, certain illegal aliens from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras – including recipients of Obama’s executive amnesty programs — can petition for their children still living in those three countries to be brought to the United States. The process includes mandatory DNA-testing, a medical clearance, applications and an interview process, as well as some reimbursable fees and travel costs to be paid by the parent.

Since the program was first launched on Dec. 1, 2014, there have been 565 applications for the program as of April 23, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services annual Ombudsman Reportpublished on June 29.

During that same time frame, more than 13,000 unaccompanied minors crossed the Southwest border illegally.

CBP reports that 22,896 UACs have been apprehended at the border thus far in FY2015.
