Chutzpah on steroids: Kate Steinle’s acquitted killer in the country illegally sues US government

Come to the U.S. illegally six times, literally get away with murder, then sue the government for using you as an example of part of the problem with lib sanctuary city policies? It’s come to this:

That sounds about right these days:

The illegal immigrant accused in the shooting death of Kate Steinle is charging the federal government with “vindictive prosecution” and collusion with city and state authorities, and using President Trump’s tweets and public statements by him and his attorney general to make his case.

In a filing this week in federal court in San Francisco, lawyers for Jose Garcia-Zarate demanded that that the federal government hand over its communications with local law enforcement agencies — the San Francisco police, district attorney’s office and sheriff’s office — to let him prove collusion and double jeopardy.

Attorney J. Tony Serra accused Mr. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions of using his client as a political punching bag and said their words suggest that Mr. Garcia-Zarate is being unjustly prosecuted.

“This case was highly publicized, both locally and nationally,” he wrote in the motion filed in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.

I’m a little surprised that guy’s lawyers haven’t filed a lawsuit against the NRA yet — and you know that’s something the likes of Nancy Pelosi would get behind.

California’s so far gone that a guy running for president of Mexico is campaigning there

If you ask me this guy is about the best argument in favor of building the wall Trump would ever be able to find:

A presidential candidate was barnstorming across Los Angeles over the weekend, reaching out to Mexican migrants, blasting President Trump and calling for protection for illegal immigrants.

The twist: he is running for president of Mexico.

According to Mexican newspaper Excelsior, Ricardo Anaya Cortes met with businessmen and activists in Los Angeles — which has a large Hispanic population.

Among those he met with was Obama-era Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano, now the president of the University of California.

While in California, Cortes encouraged all who are in the state illegally from Mexico to go back home with him where they belong. Wait, no he didn’t:

In a tweet accompanied by a picture with Napolitano, Anaya said they “talked about the importance of supporting the Dreamers and agreed that Mexican migrants deserve respect.”
According to Excelsior, Anaya said that “we are one,” and reiterated that the Mexican migrant community in the U.S. is not alone. While on American soil, he also took a swipe at President Trump by saying he would not be on the side of “an American president who has dedicated himself to insulting our community.”

What an ass. “My fellow Mexicans… we are one! But stay in the U.S.!”

Classic: Gov. Jerry Brown pledges to ‘stick to the law’ in fighting DOJ suit about sanctuary cities

Governor Moonbeam was in another unintentionally funny mood today when reacting to a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Justice Department against the State of California for its refusal to obey federal immigration law and cooperate with federal officers:

“Like so many in the Trump administration, this attorney general has no regard for the truth. What he said earlier today is not true. It is a lie. What can I say, we’ve seen with the Trump administration with the investigations going on, the pleas of guilty to lying by countless individuals, colleagues, so there it is. We are going to carry on and protect our citizens from criminals and protect people from improper abuse of the law.”

“This attorney general is maybe trying to keep his job because the president isn’t too happy with thim. We here are going to stick to the facts and stick to the law. We will meet this litigation fully.”

“We will stick to the law… well, unless it’s a law we don’t feel like sticking to.”

Brown’s tone will change dramatically the next time he has to call the White House and ask for a few billion in federal aid.

Nancy Pelosi furious after ICE agents ‘terrorize’ 150 ‘law abiding’ and ‘patriotic’ illegal aliens

Immigration & Customs Enforcement continue to do something that gives liberals night sweats, and that’s enforcing immigration & customs laws:

“Since Sunday, ICE deportation officers have arrested more than 150 individuals who are in violation of federal U.S. immigration laws, working on leads developed by the local field office in conjunction with the National Criminal Analysis and Targeting Center (NCATC),” ICE said in a statement released Tuesday.

“About half of the individuals arrested also have criminal convictions in addition to their immigration violations, including convictions for assault/battery, crimes against children, weapons charges and DUI,” ICE said.

Right on cue, Nancy Pelosi, in vigorous defense of what she views as a future Democrat voting base, called the enforcement of federal law a “cowardly attack” meant to “terrorize” some “law-abiding” illegals (?) who are “patriotic” (??):

“The Trump Administration’s raids were a shocking abuse of law enforcement power. Yet again, the White House has reached into our communities to indiscriminately detain scores of hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.

“Fully half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record. This raid was intended solely to terrorize innocent immigrant families and instill fear in the hearts of our communities – not to keep Americans safe. Parents will now be torn from their children, and spouses ripped away from their loved ones.

“The Administration continues to brazenly target the cities that refuse to bow to its blatantly bigoted anti-immigrant and mass deportation agenda. The people of the San Francisco Bay Area will continue to oppose these cowardly attacks, and we will remain open to the patriotic immigrants who are the constant reinvigoration of America.”

Tell that to Kate Steinle’s family, Stretch.

And I love it when Dems play this card: “Half of those swept up in the ICE raids have no criminal record.” Well, except for being in the country illegally. Meanwhile, Dems like Pelosi are accusing law-abiding gun-owning members of the NRA of being complicit in murder. Good luck with that approach in the elections, libs.

As IF: Rush Limbaugh suggests DREAMer compromise Republicans should REALLY consider proposing

The Republicans should actually consider pushing this proposal, and not just because it would provide me with an endless amount of amusement.

Conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh said that he would be in favor of granting amnesty to every illegal immigrant, with a major catch.

“I would be willing right here to support an effort to grant permanent citizenship for whatever number if you make part of the deal they can’t vote for 15-25 years,” Limbaugh said on Fox News Sunday.

There! The “DREAMer” problem would be solved, right, congressional Dems? … Congressional Dems!?

What a great way to call out the libs’ true intentions.

Dems if an offer of immediate citizenship were granted to DREAMers in return for a delay in permission to vote:

Some ‘DREAMers’ issued this threat if gov’t doesn’t reach DACA deal (they’re doing ‘threats’ wrong)

Here are 2018’s early nominees for the “Emptiest Threats of the Year” trophy:

Haha! Good luck with that. Maybe Nancy Pelosi would take them in. In any case, they need to learn how “threats” work.

2009 Chuck Schumer travels through time to beclown 2018 Chuck Schumer on illegal immigration

Well look at this: Chuck Schumer nine years ago thinks Chuck Schumer nine years later is full of shit. I more closely align with Schumer from nine years ago, and so does Schumer from 2018, which is why he knew he didn’t have a PR leg to stand on during the last shutdown stand off — hence the cave-in:

“People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally,” Schumer said.

“Illegal immigration is wrong — plain and simple,” he continued. “When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose.”

Particularly amusing is Schumer’s use of “illegals” which was of course because the DNC branding meeting didn’t come up with the much more focus-grouped “DREAMers” label until much later.

Selective amnesia in action: Hillary laments immigration raids

The wind-up:

And the pitch:

Huma said that Hillary’s “often confused” so the above demonstration of selective amnesia isn’t a surprise, nor will it be the last.

Captain Obvious’ column in the NYT: Increase in illegals crossing into US screwing up Obama’s claims of a secured border

How’s this administration’s border security effort going?

The numbers of migrants crossing the Rio Grande illegally have risen sharply in recent weeks, replaying scenes from the influx of Central American children and families in South Texas last year.

Once again, smugglers are bringing hundreds of women and children each day to the Mexican banks of the river and sending them across in rafts. In a season when illegal crossings normally go down, “The numbers have started going the other way,” said Raul L. Ortiz, acting chief of the Border Patrol for the Rio Grande Valley. Since Oct. 1, official figures show, Border Patrol apprehensions of migrant families in this region have increased 150 percent over the same period last year, while the number of unaccompanied children caught by agents has more than doubled.

The New York Times puts together the puzzle several years too late, concluding that Obama’s loose border policies might run counter to his other statements:

The increases come as Americans’ concerns about border security are heightened after the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris raised fears that terrorists would try to sneak into the United States. And they are complicating the Obama administration’s efforts to reassure the country that the border is under control.

Gee, ya think so!?

(h/t Byron York)

Because Ellis Island is so comparable to the current border situation…

The disingenuousness burns:

The effort to make the existing U.S. system for legal immigration synonymous with doing whatever the hell you want to get into the country continues.

Were six sets of clothes, shoes and socks, “suites” with flat screen TVs, bball courts, food, workout rooms and medical care provided at Ellis Island back in the day?


Best response to the above tweet:

The entire pro-amnesty argument hinges on making everybody forget that there are in fact existing legal ways to become a U.S. citizen.
