King O does not follow laws!

Since I live in the State of California I certainly hope that Governor Brown has been keeping up to date on getting our states reimbursements from the Federal Government for all of the illegal aliens that have been incarcerated in our prison system. If Governor Brown hasn't then I suggest he get them put into action and request all monies that are owed to our state budget and by doing so this could help our state economically and possibly be put into place to assist our unemployed either to help with our large amount of unemployed citizens to achieve employment or educated/upgrade their skills to get employed. This could also be used in many areas such as our borders becoming more secure so that we do not have any illegal aliens coming into our country through our borders which is the largest in the U.S.A. With in these stipulations is stated that illegal aliens can't receive any governmental assistance, I am sure that they are referring to food stamps, medical, and any monetary assistance. If this to be true then the State of California's Governor has to by law stop all and any assistance the Hispanic illegal aliens are currently receiving. This would allow our state to improve our electrical resources and upgrade our borders to assist in keeping illegal aliens from Mexico to cross our borders in the first. With them not able to get Welfare it might stop them from coming here because there are not even enough jobs for our born citizens.

  Just think of this section of the law, for now: Sec. 112:  Unlawful transportation of illegal aliens to the United States. So they are dropping off their little children at our borders and leaving. Then a USA bus picks them up and drives them to Texas. Now Texas if overrun so they're sending them on to Arizona. Our borders are supposed to be secure. Isn't that a laugh. What will Obama and his little workers do next??? Oh, I know. It won't be HIS fault of course. He's having conferences, trying to figure out what to do with these "poor" kids. That is, when he isn't playing golf.  So next I guess he will allow the mothers to come take care of them and of course "we'll" take care of the price. That's how you handle inequality in the USA in Obama's thoughts. He's making fools of the american people. We can hang on through the Nov. elections but no further. We cannot allow this to keep going on.

This is, in effect, another law that he is stomping on. When will we get JUSTICE??? And go after him for destroying our beautiful country, the only country in the world that believes in free enterprise, in making ones on way in life, in working on goals; not on how much we can claim for "not working" and become an Orwell's 1984 lab rat????

What law? Do we have a law concerning illegal aliens? What is it if there is one?

 Illegal entry into our country has been a felony since 1929.  No newcomer, especially one as Johnson who is so disconnected from both Law of the Land and reality can alter this fact:

Title 8 Section 1325 U.S. code states: "Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under Title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under Title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both."


That illegal immigration is a crime has been the law since 1929. Many people buy into the fact that the first offense usually gets a "civil penalty" in the form of a fine which leads them to believe that illegal immigration is a misdemeanor akin to a traffic citation. In reality, it is still a federal crime, but the penalty does not generally involve imprisonment. Subsequent offenses however, are supposed to be treated as federal felonies and do issue in imprisonment. The main message should underline that imprisonment of illegals is imminentnot to hint of amnesty nor to reference a memo written by some 2011 DHS has been!

The Administration is not only in violation of the law they are actively OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE by refusing to enforce the law... and using their executive powers too order others to obstruct justice by ignoring the law.  This Administration has conspired to brake the law and is using their federal powers to facilitate Illegal Alien Trafficking... as such they are in fact a 'Criminal Enterprise' as defined by the RICO Act... the organized crime act.

Congress needs to act immediately to being major hearings to Impeach the President, Vice President, Attorney General, Sec. of Homeland Security, and major players in the INS and Border Patrol for violations of the oaths and a number of criminal acts including obstruction of justice, misprision of a felony, dereliction of duty or criminal malfeasance in office, etc.

what law???? we still have thousands per week coming into our borders, and Obama is not doing anything to stop them. then he releases thousands of illegals from jails and prisons, who have murdered and raped...and lets them go back on our what immigration laws are we talking about....then when Arizona wants to enforce those exact laws....Obama stops Arizona from doing that. then when these illegals drop off their kids into the u.s. instead of pushing them back across the border....we round them up and take care of them...well why???? just because they are from central and south America....and we pay for all of this, but the foreign aid to these countries never we are paying twice.

Exactly... What law. This Administration has ordered that the law be DISOBEYED... ignoring the law is to disobey the law...  As such, they are actively OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE and committing misprision of a felony... aiding and abetting criminal conduct and operating as a CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE as defined by the RICO ACT.

The numbers of felonies being committed by this Administration rivals any drug gang and are so brazen as to encourage others to violate the law... the rule of law no longer underpins the orderly governance of society and is leading to a general lack of respect for all laws... both in the administration, government and the public in general.  If the President and his administration flaunt their lawlessness what will others do? 

al:  Yep and now ENTIRE villages are emptying out in South America and coming here for the dream act.  GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEADS, WE DON'T WANT YOU HERE GO HOME!  This is all part of that illegal mangy thing in the WH. to over run us, not only with illegals, but his BS!

# get that fool out of our White House!!

And do it TODAY!!!!!!

By force if necessary!!!!




Tom Fitton: Trump Was Victimized, Targeted by FBI,
Clinton Campaign, Russian Operatives, Obama Admin
and Fusion GPS

Judicial Watch founder and President Tom Fitton hammered the corrupt Mueller investigation on FOX and Friends Weekend on Saturday morning. Tom blasted the corrupt Obama Justice Department and declared the Trump-Russia collusion investigation over after Friday’s sham announcement of the indictment of 13 Russians.

Tom Fitton calls out the corrupt Justice Department on their criminal activity against candidate and President Trump.

Tom Fitton: At the end we have the massive Russia investigation that finds no collusion with the Trump Campaign. I don’t understand why we are still talking about a Special Counsel investigating the president in light of this indictment… Look those who say the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians are going to have to start providing evidence other than the Clinton-DNC dossier. Look this was in the news this week. We had the Susan Rice memo indicting Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Sally Yates, James Comey and Susan Rice in a conspiracy to get Trump on Russia. You had information that the number four at the Obama Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, hid information on his relationship with the Clinton Campaign cash machine – basically Fusion GPS that was collaborating with the Russia to launch dirt or really defamatory dirt against President Trump into the FBI-DOJ apparatus. And now you have this indictment of Russians abroad, an indictment that’s never going to see the light of day in short of trial because they’re never going to come here. It’s never going to be tried. We’re never going to find out whether anything in the indictment’s true. And what would they rather be talking about? This indictment where they found, despite all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, not one American colluded with the Russians.

Why isn’t this Justice Department looking into the abuse of the FISA process? Look the Russians were trying to make it clear to the Clinton Camp that they had dirt on Trump and they were going to use it against him. And all of that was false. And Trump was victimized and the FBI, rather than trying to protect him, used it as a pretext working with the Clinton campaign to target him under the corrupt Obama administration. Look this indictment shows the Russian scandal is over as far as Trump is concerned.


Obama is center of anti-@RealDonaldTrump effort -- when will he be questioned on the Clinton-DNC dossier? And, do what do we have the FBI for -- the shooter screw-up? New Lawsuits on Unmasking, the DNC Hack and Comey DOC. My @JudicialWatch update.
