    Trumpís DHS Nominee Will Tell ICE Agents: Focus on Illegals with Criminal Records

    14 Nov 2017Washington, D.C.

    President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Kirstjen Nielsen, says she will “clarify” to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents not to target illegal aliens who do not have a violent criminal background.

    In a hearing last week, Nielsen repeatedly conceded to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) that she would issue a directive to ICE agents to make sure that illegal aliens who have no other crime on their record besides entering the U.S. illegally are not targeted for priority deportation.
    Nielsen told Harris:

    HARRIS: And it has been widely reported that between January and September of this year, ICE arrested nearly three times the number of individuals with no criminal history, as compared to the same period last year. If DHS is, in fact, focused as you have indicated and, if confirmed, under your leadership, on true criminals, it is clear that the frontline officers have a different impression.

    And so, if confirmed, will you issue a written directive to the agents that they prioritize enforcement activities in a way that targets criminals who pose a public safety threat and not DREAMers or DACA recipients?
    NIELSEN: Yes, although I will say, understand that to be the current policy. But if there’s any question about it, we will clarify. [Emphasis added]

    Nielsen’s statements directly contradict previous statements made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has made clear that if individuals are illegally in the U.S., they are subject to deportation.

    “Everybody in the country illegally is subject to being deported, so people come here and they stay here a few years and somehow they think they are not subject to being deported – well, they are,” Sessions previously said in April.

    Nielsen made the concession to Harris before also conceding that either she or ICE Acting Director Homan would issue a directive that made clear the policy not to target illegal aliens who are enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program or those who have no violent crime history.

    HARRIS: OK, and in particular, will you agree to issuing a written directive to the agents, that that is the policy of the agency?

    NIELSEN: Yes, I would. Or if appropriate, Acting-Director Homan would.

    In her confirmation hearing, Nielsen confirmed her pro-amnesty, mass immigration views by saying that it is the United States’ responsibility to legalize DACA illegal aliens.

    “I believe that we must and we owe it to them to find a permanent solution,” she said of passing a DACA amnesty that could potentially lead to a chain migration of 9.9 million to 19 million foreign nationals pouring into the U.S. legally. “It’s no way to expect anyone to live a month or two months at a time,” said Nielsen, even though the DACA work-permits each last for two years.

    Nielsen was confirmed today in an 11-4 vote by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Committee, with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) saying he hopes Nielsen is approved by the full Senate “as quickly as possible.”

    As Breitbart News reported, Nielsen’s nomination to head DHS has been praised by the cheap foreign labor lobby, open borders advocates, and the Washington, D.C. national security establishment – which allied itself with the failed “Never Trump” movement during the 2016 presidential election.

    In a pre-hearing questionnaire obtained by Breitbart News, Nielsen explained how she would be “ready to work with Congress” on a plan to give amnesty to the nearly 800,000 DACA illegal aliens in the U.S.

    Likewise, Nielsen chaired a committee at the World Economic Forum that promoted mass immigration to Europe and the U.S., claiming Western nations did not have a choice and needed to accept millions of migrants. That report, as Breitbart News reported, was co-authored by executives from multinational corporations and world banks.

    Additionally, Breitbart News reported on Nielsen’s involvement with the Bush administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when more than 30,000 illegal aliens and foreign workers were able to come to the U.S. to take American blue-collar jobs which those devastated by the natural disaster had hoped to get.

    Following Hurricane Katrina, 1.5 million Americans were displaced by the storm, and easing of labor laws by the Bush administration left many looking for work outside of the Gulf Coast because illegal aliens and foreign workers quickly dominated the clean-up effort.

    What in the hell is Trump thinking?

    Nielsen is Trump's Chief of Staff, General John Kelly's recommended choice. The above interview not only outs Nielsen for the illegal immigrant lover she is, it also speak volumes about Kelly and Trump. Everyone pretty much knows General Kelly is weak on immigration and border security, however, the buck stops with President Trump. He is the one that is ultimately responsible for Nielsen's nomination.

    Another bad hire in the making.

    But how does Ryan's statement correspond on any DACA extension NOT being tied to spending bills? Congress could adjourn before any decision is reached by them, and then possibly DACA would just expire next year. There may be a "plan" for DACA, but not one with any legs.

    We need a law that prevents any member of Congress from exploiting nominees into promising to break the law, ignore the law or aid and abet lawbreakers as part of their confirmation process. The law needs to require immediate expulsion from any committee where such extortion occurs and a fine of $50,000 for each attempt as in each question.

    If 3 attempts to extort a nominee into breaking the law or ignoring the law or aiding and abetting the lawbreakers take place during any term of the member, then the rules of Congress will require immediate expulsion of that member from the Congress.

    In the meantime, the US Department of Justice should immediately investigate for bribery, kickbacks, money laundering and other related crimes, any member of Congress who extorts any nominee into breaking the law, ignoring the law or aiding and abetting lawbreakers as part of the nomination process.

    You want to drain this swamp? Then drain it. Get these thugs out of our Congress and into a cell block under the rule of law.
