Feds Collecting License Plate Information From Gun Shows

From the NRA:

The article states that ICE had hatched a plan to use license plate readers (LPRs) at Southern California gun shows to compare information on vehicles parked at the shows with information on vehicles later crossing the border into Mexico.

Of course, there’s nothing inherently suspicious about attending a gun show or traveling to a neighboring country, even if one event precedes another. 

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Illegals Smuggled In From Middle East

From The Washington Times:

Those smuggled included Palestinians, Pakistanis and the Afghan man who Homeland Security officials said had family ties to the Taliban and was “involved in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. and/or Canada.” He is in custody but the Times is withholding his name at the request of law enforcement to protect ongoing investigations.

“It’s disturbing, in so many ways,” said Joe Kasper, Mr. Hunter’s chief of staff. “The interdiction of this group validates once again that the southern border is wide open to more than people looking to enter the U.S. illegally strictly for purposes of looking for work, as the administration wants us to believe. What’s worse, federal databases weren’t even synched and Border Patrol had no idea who they were arresting and the group was not considered a problem because none of them were considered a priority under the president’s enforcement protocol. That’s a major problem on its own, and it calls for DHS to figure out the problem — and fast.”

“Administration’s ‘Silent Raids’ Lead to Firings, Not Deportations

“The Obama administration’s new approach to dealing with companies that hire illegal immigrants results in firings, not deportations, the New York Times reported Friday.

Instead of immigration sweeps at factories and farms which used to lead to illegal workers being shipped out of the country, the administration’s new policy—government conducted audits labeled “silent raids” by employers—usually only result in the workers losing their jobs, the Times said.”

It seems to me this policy will only produce more and more unemployed illegal immigrants wandering around the US, with no income. What do hungry, desperate people do when they have no income? Eventually they either go somewhere where they can find work or they take what they need from someone else.

This policy of getting illegal workers fired but not deporting them is going to have a massive negative impact on our crime rate. Maybe not immediately, but as the population of out-of-work, hungry illegal immigrants grows, the crime will grow. Maybe this is one of those “fundamental changes” we were promised.

When is it time to deport?

by YankeeJim:
When a person is discovered to be in the USA illegally, should not the person be deported immediately? Should not their name go down on a list, like three strikes, that says if you are caught again, your chances of ever getting into the country again diminish?

What about prosecuting the companies that hire illegals? They know what credentials are required and if they have a question, they can call Immigration and Customs Enforcement and ask.
