    DHS Asks Catholic Churches to Feed & House Illegals After Obama Admin Declares Them Terrorists

    In an interesting turn of events regarding these illegal alien invaders, the monarch's, oh, I mean administration's, Department of Homeland Security has asked Catholic churches in California to "temporarily" feed and house what they term as "migrant" Central Americans until the year 2016. The same administration that has designated Christians, gun owners, Constitution supporters, veterans, militia members, along with other groups as terrorists has now solicited the Catholic church to aid and abet criminals breaking the US immigration laws. This same administration that remains deafeningly silent to Christian persecution around the world at the hands of Muslims, now call on Christians to become lawbreakers. Obama, who supports terrorist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, has the DHS solicit Christians to aid and abet his violations of the law.
    According to the Daily Caller, this may be intended to bypass Congressional authority to either fund or not fund "federal agencies' new practice of distributing the flood of migrant families to homes across the country." This unpaid cooperation is deemed "legally questionable." This activity on the part of the diocese in San Bernadino was only exposed after parishioners called in to the Rush Limbaugh radio talk show because of disagreeing with the bishop's agreement to help DHS.
    Maria Christina Mendez, at the Office of Hispanic Affairs, confirmed to the Daily Caller that DHS had "reached out" to the diocese and the bishop requesting assistance with providing shelter for "transitioning" families. Mendez indicated the "assistance" would be needed for 18 months or longer. The diocese agreed to allow the illegal alien invaders to shelter in their buildings up to three days while the federal immigration agency relays these "family groups of migrants" to cities and towns in the US "where they want to live."
    According to one parishioner named Ann, who called Limbaugh's radio talk show, "They have made the decision that they're going to absorb the immigrants that are coming through because the federal government called the bishop's office on Monday. The church will reimburse us for any out-of-pocket expenses and we were told not to talk to anybody about it, especially the media. They don't want a lot of people there at the churches when they busload these mothers and children."
    The Daily Caller reports:
    The church's provision of free services to DHS – and its reported offer to reimburse homeowners for services given to DHS – however, are also potentially illegal.

    Federal law, dubbed the Anti-Deficiency Act, prevents government agencies from taking free services from people or private organizations, because that would allow the agencies to bypass congressional power of the purse.
    The Anti-Deficiency Act does indicate that government agencies can accept services in emergency situations where human life is threatened; however, there is no indication this is the case after these invaders are detained.
    Virginia Kice, western region communications director at US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, indicated that only one convoy of so called family groups have been sent to the diocese and that "the transfer of migrants to California has been suspended" after the public protests in Murrieta.
    Kice said, "We reached out … to a number of community and faith-based groups several weeks ago. They could serve an invaluable intermediary in the process.... Our goal was simply to mitigate the impact on the migrants, to try to make their transition easier."
    Kice stated "we didn't provide any assurance of reimbursement."
    What a slap in the face to the Christian community. Christians have been deemed as terrorists by this administration. This administration then turns around to ask Christians to provide shelter, food, clothing, etc. to these illegal alien invaders for free, which as it turns out may be a violation of law. Fiction writers couldn't make up better plots than this.
    There are a number of phrases being used that are key to possibly indicate the administration's stance toward amnesty. First, the immigration agency is "relaying family groups to cities and towns in the US where they want to live." It is assumed these family groups consist of illegal adults as well as children, along with many who have formed "makeshift" families. It doesn't sound like that only ones being helped here are children.
    Second, the goals are not to follow the immigration law, which Obama unilaterally ordered not to be enforced; the goal is to "mitigate the impact on migrants." These people pouring over the border are not migrants, but illegal alien invaders. The impact for crossing into the US illegally should be deportation, but that is not the case. No mention has been made regarding the impact to these states and communities where these invaders are being deposited.
    Third, the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement arm of the Department of Homeland Security wants to "make their transition easier." ICE wants to make their transition to a permanent living arrangement and possible citizenship from amnesty or the pathway to citizenship ruse. This does not sound like just "helping the children" because of a "humanitarian crisis."
    Fourth, the terms describing these individuals is now changing. No longer are they called "immigrants" but are now termed "migrants." Some reports have even used the term "refugees."
    There is a big difference between a "migrant" and an "immigrant." According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, a migrant is "a person who goes from one place to another especially to find work." An immigrant, according to the same dictionary, is "a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence." Both of these terms are miles apart from refugee – "someone who has been forced to leave a country because of war or for religious or political reasons; a person who flees to a foreign country or power to escape danger or persecution."
    It's all in the terminology the government wants to use to gloss over the fact that the US is being overrun by illegal alien invaders that will overwhelm government and health services that will create additional economic crises in America, as well as subject American citizens to possible pandemics of highly contagious diseases.
    According to Ralph Natter, a lawyer in the DC firm of Barnett, Sivon and Natter, PC, it is difficult to determine the legality of these particular actions without a careful analysis. He does indicate the general rule is that voluntary services cannot be provided to the federal government.
    Maria Christina Mendez indicates that the church's charity is a Christian duty, not a political stance, claiming the church has nothing to do with immigration – "only providing food, clothing and shelter." However, the charitable arm of the Catholic church does receive funding from the federal government for immigration-related services. Even Mendez is terming these invaders migrants.
    All Christians will agree that charity is a duty under God's Word – that the church, which consists of a congregation of Christians, are instructed by God to provide charity. However, does God intend for charity to include violating a just, constitutional law? Does not charity begin at home? Are we to knowingly become criminals to provide charity? Remember, the immigration laws fall under the authority of the federal government making them constitutional. Does not God command us to follow His Word and the just laws of the governments of men? Shouldn't the charity be returning these people to their country of origin safely instead of helping them and the government continue to violate law?
    These are not refugees in need of true humanitarian aid, nor are these individuals seeking asylum from persecution. These people are breaking the law and the people who are aiding and abetting those breaking the law makes them lawbreakers also. What happens if the government "changes its stance" and decides to enforce the immigration laws, even though it would be out of character for Obama?
    This administration is shown to have a "truth" problem. Documented evidence indicates this administration spouts lie after lie on a more than daily basis. Can you trust what is allowed today will not become disallowed tomorrow?
    America is now witness to another of Obama's lawless criminal actions while the best that can be done is "filing a lawsuit." Never forget that each of these agencies fall under the direction of the Executive Branch, not Congress. Whatever these agencies do, regardless of who sits in the Oval Office, one can bet it is at the behest of and with full support from the man sitting behind the Resolute Desk. Obama is asking Congress for over $3 billion dollars to "help" with these illegal invaders. Surely, Obama will not claim "it's a few rogue" immigration agents after requesting money. Later, the self-appointed monarch will claim this was a "phony scandal" and not one smidgen of lawbreaking occurred. And, just like a spoiled child who is told "no," Obama whines in front of the media cameras "if you don't like what I'm doing, then help me.. lets work together." Really? The only working together that Obama knows is "its his way or the highway" while he uses the infamous pen and his Obama-phone.
    At this rate, America will not last another two years of Obama; America will be "fundamentally transformed." All that "hope and change" will not be beneficial to the citizens of this nation, including the left, the useful idiots, illegal aliens and progressive liberals. Once the sheeple discover this, it will be too little, too late.

    No wonder the DHS budget is so bloated. We have Departments that seem to have been created to give Open Borders activists government jobs. Is there an office of Black Affairs in the Department of Homeland Security? An Office of Asian affairs?

    This is further proof that it was always about ALL illegals from Central America and the children are just the talking points.

    The Catholic Church and the Baptist Churches that are participating in the planned welfare invasion of our country are breaking the law.


    1907 Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) Offenses
    TTitle 8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry. Subsection 1324(a)(3).

    Alien Smuggling -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing that a person is an alien, to bring to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States and regardless of any future official action which may be taken with respect to such alien.

    Domestic Transporting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.

    Harboring -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.

    Encouraging/Inducing -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who -- encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.

    Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting -- Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

    Bringing Aliens to the United States -- Subsection 1324(a)(2) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has not received prior authorization to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, to bring to or attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever, such alien, regardless of any official action which may later be taken with respect to such alien.

    The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA), enacted on September 30, 1996, added a new 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(3)(A) which makes it an offense for any person, during any 12-month period, to knowingly hire at least 10 individuals with actual knowledge that these individuals are unauthorized aliens. See thisManual at 1908 (unlawful employment of aliens).

    Unit of Prosecution -- With regard to offenses defined in subsections 1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.

    Knowledge -- Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless disregard of alienage is sufficient.

    Penalties -- The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A).

    Enhanced penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment is provided for third or subsequent offenses.

    COMMENT: Further discussion of offenses defined in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a) is set forth in Chapter 3 ofImmigration Law, published as part of the Office of Legal Education's Litigation Series, and as part of the USABook computer library.

    This undermines the separation of church and state IMO. A few years down the road some of those in these religions that respond , illegally, to governments request for assistance will come up with the "remember when...." plea.
