Texas Law SB4 Aligns with Existing Federal Law

 

sanctuary cities
TX Sanctuary Cities: San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas

 

The purpose of SB4 is to prevent local Texas governments, so-called sanctuary cities, from shielding illegal aliens who have committed criminal acts against persons or property. In effect, sanctuary cities harbor – this is the operative word – such criminal aliens.

Existing Federal Law

I refer you to the U.S. Department of Justice criminal resource manual available on line. Specifically: 1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offenses.

Introduction to the Law

Title 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).

Unlawful Harboring of Criminal Aliens

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.

Penalties

Penalties — … 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…

Therefore, the law enforcement and city administrators of any municipality acting as a sanctuary city are in violation of federal law, subject to criminal prosecution and imprisonment of up to five years.

Texas law specifically targets sanctuary cities that do not report aliens detained for local offenses against persons or property. SB4 is not a broad sweep of all illegal aliens, just those DETAINED by local authorities who refuse to transmit arrest reports to ICE.

SB4 becomes effective on September 1, 2017.

Government-Off-The-Rails – A sordid tale of establishment corruption

mueller expands his probe again
Image: Frontpage Magazine 21 July 2017

The stated purpose for the Special Prosecutor is to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

So, when did Mr. Donald Trump become Candidate Donald Trump? The answer is July 2016 when he announced his candidacy.

It’s time for all Americans, regardless political affiliation, to rise up and say ENOUGH!! Enough of this mindless campaign to overturn the 2016 Presidential election.

Mueller expands his “investigation” a second time for a span of TEN YEARS prior to the 2016 elections.

Background: Mueller is a Democrat, a former FBI director who hired a staff of Democrat lawyers that were all Clinton contributors. Even Senator Chuck Schumer should have the discernment that this is government-off-the-rails.

While there is ZERO evidence of wrongdoing by Mr. Trump, there is ample evidence of wrongdoing by Mrs. Clinton. Why is there no investigation of her? Have the establishment people so compromised Jeff Sessions that he cannot do the right things?

Today I will tell my two U.S. Senators, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, to end the witch hunt that threatens our national security, our international prestige, and, if allowed to continue, will cause investors to lose confidence in the United States of America. When investors lose faith in the economy, there will be a disastrous depression the likes of which the world has never seen.

Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal takes point on the assault on our president

Why Democrats chose the jackass to represent their party
Where was Mr. Blumenthal throughout the corrupt 8 years of the Obama administration? Why no call for a special prosecutor to investigate Benghazi-gate? Why no curiosity about Hillary Clinton’s shady uranium deal with the Russians?

To all you Democrat readers: We won. You lost.

Millions of Americans are suffering because they can’t afford ObamaCare and Sen. Blumenthal wants to keep that onerous plan in place so government forces us into a single-payer model like Great Britain and Canada.
 
MSM fake news and self-appointed ‘fact checkers’ say President Trump is incorrect that Canadians are coming to the USA for medical treatment. What do Canadians tell us? Read “Estimated 52,000 Canadians sought medical care outside Canada…Number of ‘medical tourists’ up 26% in 2014” CBC News, 2014.
 
 
Democrat leadership today is not the leadership of Harry Truman, FDR, or John F. Kennedy. Democrat leadership of today is atheistic, profane, dishonest, and totally corrupt.
 
Fake news and leading Democrats claim Republicans face a backlash from voters. Here’s news for you Democrat liars: You have already faced one major backlash from your voter base in the 2016 elections and the backlash will be even greater in subsequent elections because your party only represents special interests like Warren Buffet, George Soros (a frequent visitor to the Obama White House), and the homosexual activists (a tiny minority of Americans).
 
We the People are fed up with all corruption in the Nation’s capital and it is, for this reason, we elected President Donald Trump, the “Human Wrecking Ball” to cull out establishment politicians and bureaucrats.
 
May God bless America and may God bless President Donald Trump.

Deep State sabotage of Pres. Trump must come to an end – #DrainTheSwamp

On January 20, 2017, the New York Times reported WIRETAPPED DATA USED IN INQUIRY OF TRUMP AIDES.

wiretapped-trump
Still more on March 6, 2017, Lou Dobbs Tonight: Fmr. U.S. AG Mukasey’s take on Trump’s wiretapping claim 

Here’s the full Lou Dobbs Tonight half-hour video of March 6, 2017. As Lou points out, President Obama denies directly ordering a wiretap; he does not deny it happened.

The NY Times says is happened. Former U.S. Attorney General Mukasey says it very likely happened. Barack Obama does not deny it happened.

First and foremost, let’s pray for President Trump (1 Timothy 2:2). Let’s also pray the truth will be uncovered. As it is written in Mark 4:2, “For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.”

In an interview with Chris Wallace on a Fox News Sunday program on February 19, 2017 Rush Limbaugh warned how the ‘deep state’ is sabotaging this president. Give a listen.

Domestic spying evidently happened throughout the eight years of the Obama administration.

Write and/or call your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative. Tell them to encourage President Trump to Drain The Swamp by firing all Obama appointees.

What’s a former president to do with his time and money? How about destroying the nation?

Barack Obama is the first Democrat president in history to destroy his own political party.

When Obama entered the office of president, Democrats held a 58-seat majority in the Senate, 256 seats in the House, and 12 state governors.

According to the Washington Times, “[Democrats] lost the House and ceded the majority of governorships in 2010, held serve in 2012 with Mr. Obama’s re-election, then lost control of the Senate in 2014 and control of the White House this year. All told, Democrats have shed 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats, and 12 governorships.” http://bit.ly/2hl0BZP

After leaving office, Obama did not follow the custom of all previous presidents by getting out of the way of his successor. Instead, Obama chose to live in Washington, D.C. to lead a continuing assault on our nation, our Constitution, and our President.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, describes how Obama’s community organizing handbook teaches his thugs how to disrupt and bully Congress. I quote from the article:

Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall.”

Obama knows a lot about leftist radical disruption. He was born to communist parents, raised by communist grandparents, and mentored by a well-known communist. Destruction of his own party was not enough. His next goal is the destruction of our beloved nation.

What’s a patriotic American citizen to do?

Holy Scripture informs us, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

This same chapter of the Bible educates us on how to counter radical leftist community organizers. We are to take a stand against the demonic attacks by Obama’s trained thugs by putting on the whole armor of God.

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…” Ephesians 6:14-18

Pray for all elected office holders including municipal leaders, to state and county, the Congress, the President and Vice President, and federal judges.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2

The battle is not a political contest. This is spiritual warfare as we have never before known.

Soli Deo Gloria

The Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama: Public disorder, anarchy, & lawlessness

The most recent ostensibly anti-Trump demonstration must be seen for what it is. Donald Trump’s election was the product of an open and free election by the people of the United States of America. This anarchy and lawlessness is an attack on Y-O-U.
 
Was it funded by George Soros? We’ll know the answer to that question over time, but for now, it’s vital to recognize such events as anti-American demonstrations.
 
The states of Oregon and California have majority populations that do not know their own history. Movements have arisen in both states to secede from the union. On one hand, I would gladly support a constitutional amendment to this end.
 
On the other, I want to allow sane business owners and residents the freedom to flee elsewhere as have hundreds of good businesses that have relocated to Texas.
 
To my knowledge, inciting riots is unlawful in all fifty states. But, don’t expect the Obama administration to launch a formal investigation anytime soon. After the ‘new sheriff’ takes office let’s insist on criminal investigations that will follow the money.
 
Law enforcement officers are not the only persons targeted. Between now and January 20, 2017, President-elect Trump and our republic are in grave danger.
