“Dreamer” arrested by mistake

As reported by Reuters.

It was obviously a mistake. The Trump administration would surely be smart enough to make sure the first intentional arrest of someone granted illegal amnesty by the Obama administration would happen outside of the territory of the hostile 9th circuit.

  1. They’re saying he’s a gang member.

    • Whatever the legal niceties, this should be shouted from the rooftops.

      Guys, I am serious. I think that the Trump Administration’s perimeters are being wasted as we speak. I’m not an alarmist. I am a realist. The Deep State is against him. (You schooled me.) Hollywood is against him. MSM is against him.

      Trump needs to get it together and fast. Remember: “An Emperor should cut off heads as easily as a dog sits down.” He needs to get Roman, and fast.

      • “The Deep State is against him. (You schooled me.) Hollywood is against him. MSM is against him. Trump needs to get it together and fast.”

        Heck, his own party’s establishment is against him. You’re right. They need to get their act together and quick. Not that I think they’re any less competent than Bush and Obama’s teams were. But they don’t have the allies that Bush and Obama had. And, as outsiders, they don’t have the political experience either. If they’re not careful they’ll be toast. They need a “maestro” to conduct Trump’s orchestra while keeping them out of trouble. I was hoping Reince was it. I like Reince but he needs to up his game. They can’t afford any mistakes with so many sharks swimming around.

        ” And, as outsiders, they don’t have the political experience either. ”


        “If they’re not careful they’ll be toast.”

        John Schindler is tweeting that the Deep State wants to put Trump in jail.

        Don’t tell me that Schindler is crazy. I know he is. But maybe some of the people in the intel agencies are too.

        They all believe this Russia stuff. This is real. We are living in an alternate universe.

    • I looked for this – couldn’t find anything.

      Is it too much trouble in future for you to

      1. Clarify who “they” is? Give names, etc.
      2. Cite a reputable URL. If you read it on Stormfront, don’t. But don’t refer to it.

      • It’s reported in Lion’s link.


        February 15, 2017 at 2:15 pm

      • Yes it was and I have a very red face. I apologize to IHTG. I only read the head and the first few paragraphs. They stick the “self-admitted” gang member down below decks.

        This is a great example as to how the MSM lies without lying. In the 50s the headline would have read, “Gang Member Nabbed in Illegal Immigration Raid.”


        February 15, 2017 at 3:06 pm

      • Actually I have an even redder face because the rest of the article is a discussion of this fact, which is in dispute. And this:

        “Under 2014 guidance from the Obama administration, someone would be a deportation priority for gang activity only if they had been convicted of an offence in connection with the gang, not for gang affiliation alone, although there was room for discretion on the part of immigration officials. Reuters could not determine whether gang members who had not committed crimes were deported during Obama’s tenure.”

        God in heaven, how I, um, vehemently disagree with Obama.

        Lion – I think that this, and all such websites are being monitored by Homeland Security. Every one of us is known to them. Maybe I’ve gone crazy, but I believe that.

  2. ICE is going after everybody they can get their hands on. The 9th will probably rule it is unconstitutional to deport this gang banger but so what?

    • I suspect that the 9th will be making a lot more rulings against Trump. And, as soon as Gorsuch is seated, SCOTUS will undo it all. Even more, having ruled against the 9th, the administration will have the court’s blessing to go full steam ahead. It’s worth nothing that nearly 80% of the 9th rulings get overturned by SCOTUS. No other court even comes close to that. The 9th are a bunch of radicals. So don’t take their rulings seriously.

  3. Even though DACA isn’t really a legal program (since Obama basically just made it up with no backing legislation and the courts have agreed) it would be better off tossing this fish back unless you can make a case that he didn’t qualify for DACA by being a criminal. At this point, he’s not worth the legal fight or possible judicial decisions that could result from his detention or deportation.

    • That’s what they’ve been done in previous cases involving non-criminal DACAs. It’s probably just ICE agents feeling their oats now that Trump’s in the WH. But this could be a good opportunity. For example, if the 9th rules against ICE and then SCOTUS takes up the case saying ICE can deport non-criminal DACAs, etc then that will be hundreds of thousands more who can be deported.

      • It would be better to get a positive ruling from a more friendly circuit first.

      • Based on the 9th Circuit’s totally made up decision on the “travel ban” I would feel a lot better about avoiding any court fight for now. I mean legally this guy could be deported since the courts have already found that DACA was outside of Executive jurisdiction to create, but Trump’s 7 nation entry restriction was perfectly legal too until the courts stopped it. Why take chances at this point?

  4. Maybe he is a gang member, but whether he is a criminal or not is quite irrelevant since he has been granted magical Dreamer status by Saint Barack of the Holy Affirmative Action.

  5. It’s a troll on the judiciary. If Trump’s executive orders on immigration are illegal, so are Obama’s.

  6. The media is making the entire illegal immigration matter about “the children” and how Trump is breaking up families. Trump is a heartless fascist! No mention that illegals have taken away tons of jobs from Americans and depressed their wages as well. No mention that illegals are actually illegal. The media has not used the term “illegal” for at least a decade. If you’re an illegal immigrant, you’re either an “immigrant” or “undocumented.” No mention that there’s at least 11 million and possibly twice that many (or more) in this country.

    • “No mention that illegals have taken away tons of jobs from Americans and depressed their wages as well.”

      Even Trump hasn’t been saying that. The soapbox is all law & order and national security. There might be legal value in that, but it’s lame politics.


      February 15, 2017 at 2:11 pm

      • Actually, Trump has said that. It wasn’t his main campaign theme but it was mentioned. Stephen Miller in particular gave a lot of speeches about immigrants taking jobs during the Wisconsin primaries. In the last couple of weeks, Trump has talked about cracking down on employers who abuse H1B. In response, tech firms have looked into expanding their offices in Vancouver and moving their H1B’s their. So we have a problem — if we crack down on H1B’s here then we risk tech companies ultimately relocating to Canada. Globalists are playing Canada against the US.


        February 15, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    • Why doesn’t Trump get ahead of all the people telling him he’s breaking up families by putting in place programs to get legal immigrants to renounce their green cards and citizenship and rejoin their deported family members in their country of origin. A lot of these legal immigrants are poor and therefore easily bribed with quite modest amounts of money and also aiding and sheltering their illegal immigrant family members, something else that could be used very effectively as leverage.


      February 15, 2017 at 6:11 pm

    • Just call it what it is: America has a caste system and our elites want to keep status quo. Illegals have very little effect on working Americans striving for a living wage.

      There is a lack of value transference work that pays a living wage. There’s a lack of low skilled jobs that pay a living wage.

      There are unsavory trades/blue collar work touted by individuals like Yakov, that pay a living wage.

      The bottom line: American capitalists have very little use for the average man striving for a dignified life.
