The much-ballyhooed “Day Without Immigrants” turned out to be a day without many protestors or any political impact, but with many Mexican flags, angry slogans, and a muted social-media response by amnesty advocates.

The Thursday turnout in most cities was few hundred protestors, despite some employers shutting their workplaces. But organizers did get a turnout of several thousand people in North Carolina and Chicago. NBC described the national turnout as merely “thousands,” despite an estimated population of roughly 11 million illegals.

In recognition of the low numbers, the response from pro-mass immigration politicians and activists was muted. Douglas Rivlin, Director of Communication for Democratic Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, tweeted nothing about the marches. Neither did the National Immigration Forum. Linda Sarsour, Muslim organizer of the Women’s March, simply tweeted “solidarity.”

Although the event was a political dud, the organizers will likely use it as a basis for larger, future protests.

very interesting to say the least

A "Day without Immigrants" was totally misleading, and should have been recognized as a "Day without ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS".  No wonder the impact was so minimal it wasn't noticed! And that's what we can expect when all those ILLEGAL immigrants return home...minimal impact on services; but saving billions of dollars annually that's been spent to support them! 

a day without Immigrants it's a lie anyway

NEW KELLY MEMOS RESTORE IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT & RESCIND *MOST* OBAMA-ERA MEMOS

Tue, FEB 21st 2017 @ 9:47 am EST  by  Chris Chmielenski

DHS Secretary John Kelly has certainly been busy since the Senate confirmed his appointment last month, but two memos he signed yesterday are the most significant actions he's taken thus far. Kelly signed a memo titled "Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest" and another one titled "Implementing the President's Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements Policies" providing guidance to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Border Patrol, and USCIS on how to executive Pres. Trump's Jan. 25 executive orders.

The first memo lays out several guidelines for interior enforcement, but most significantly, it rescinds "all existing conflicting directives, memoranda, or field guidance regarding the enforcement of our immigration laws and priorities for removal" issued by the Obama administration. This includes the Morton Memos issued in 2011-12 and the administration's Priority Enforcement Program launched in 2014 that heavily restricted ICE's interior enforcement efforts.

The only downside to Kelly's interior enforcement memo is that it specifically excludes the recision of Pres. Obama's DACA and DAPA amnesties.

The interior enforcement memo implements the following actions:

  • Orders DHS personnel to faithfully execute immigration laws against all removable aliens.
  • Ends all exemptions for classes or categories of removable aliens from enforcement.
  • Announces the hiring of 10,000 additional ICE agents.
  • Prioritizes removal for aliens who:
    • have been convicted of any criminal offense;
    • have been charged with any criminal offense that has not been resolved;
    • have committed acts which constitute a chargeable criminal offense;
    • have engaged in fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter before a governmental agency;
    • have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits;
    • are subject to a final order of removal but have not complied with their legal obligation to depart the United States; or
    • in the judgment of an immigration officer, otherwise pose a risk to public safety or national security.
  • Restores the Secure Communities Program, which alerts ICE whenever an illegal aliens is booked in a local jail.
  • Encourages local jurisdictions to participate in the 287(g) Program allowing local police to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration laws.
  • Establishes the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office to act as a liaison between victims and their families of crimes committed by illegal aliens
  • Provides monthly public reports on illegal aliens detained and removed and provide weekly reports on illegal aliens released by sanctuary cities

Kelly's border security memo addresses not just current weaknesses in border security, but also attempts to discourage future border surges while providing a system for dealing with any future surges. The memo implements the following actions:

  • Announces the hiring of 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents and 500 Air & Marine agents in order to achieve 100% operational control of all borders.
  • Calls for the identification of all federal aid to Mexico over the last 5 years.
  • Encourages additional 287(g) participation in jurisdictions along the border.
  • Begins the process for constructing additional barriers along the border.
  • Ends catch-and-release and allows all Border Patrol officers to expeditiously remove any alien caught entering the country if immediately found to be inadmissible.
  • Ends abuse of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Act regarding unaccompanied alien children.
  • Directs DHS to take legal action against those who have facilitated the smuggling and trafficking of children.
  • Adheres to existing federal law when it comes to the adjudication of asylum claims and assessing credible fear claims.
  • Ensures proper application of parole for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.
  • Prioritizes enforcement of serious criminal activity along the border, including drug and human trafficking and smuggling.
  • Calls for the establishment of standardized reporting of border statistics.

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
