|| La Tribuna Los Cabos

“San José del Cabo – Five members of a family who were on Palmilla Beach were killed by gunshot wounds with automatic weapons, with three dead and two wounded.

According to the information, at least three armed men arrived at the beach where they surprised a family that was in the place.

It transpired that there were four men, a woman and a baby who were in the shade of a palm tree, when the hit men shot them first with a pistol and then with a long gun.

Three of the men were shot dead while another man and a woman were injured, while a baby carrying the woman in her arms was unharmed.

After the attack, the gunmen fled at full speed.

After the attack collective panic was experienced in dozens of bathers who were in the beach, who began to race to their cars to retire.

Minutes later paramedics arrived, who gave first aid to the survivors and moved them to a hospital.

The area was cordoned off by police and military elements.”

Cartel Gunmen Fire on Tourists at Mexican Vacation Spot

|| Breitbart

“Tourists visiting a popular beach in Mexico’s Los Cabos recorded the moment when cartel gunmen stormed a beach unleashing waves of machine gun fire killing three men and injured two others. Over the weekend, the once quiet resort area saw 11 confirmed murders.

Videos recorded by tourists using cell phones and obtained by Semanario Zeta reveal the moment when gunmen unleashed barrages of automatic gunfire towaes the beach goers.

The gunmen stormed Palmilla Beach in San Jose del Cabo in Baja California Sur, targeting three men sitting under a palm tree. During the shooting, stray bullets hit a man and a woman who were nearby, Mexico’s El Universal reported.

Shortly after that attack, authorities reported various other murders in the area leading to a total of 11 during the weekend in Los Cabos.

Once considered a safe haven by tourists, since 2014, Los Cabos saw a spike in violence as cartel members began fighting over drug distribution territories, Breitbart Texas reported. Earlier this year, a Mexican journalist from Los Cabos survived yet another attempt on his life when a group of gunmen fired at Julio Mar Gomez as he was leaving his home in Cabo San Lucas, Breitbart Texas reported. Gomez was a reporter for the online news site 911 Noticias covering cartel violence and public corruption in Los Cabos.”

Cops Can’t Stop Criminal Illegal Aliens in Sanctuary City of New York | Aug 01, 2017

Wild Illegal Alien desnudas demand cash for front page fame in NYC

|| NY Post

“A trio of Minnie Mouses and a Hulk routinely stepped out of the city’s so-called Designated Activity Zones, or DAZs, on Broadway between West 46th and West 47th streets to snatch people’s phones out of their hands. They would then surround their startled victims, take a quick photo — and insist upon a “tip.”

“I felt trapped,’’ said New Yorker Marie Menella, 57. “They took my phone and they took a picture.”

The worst of the disturbing behavior occurred before the usual groups of cops started milling about late morning. Still, the Naked Cowgirl stepped out of a DAZ to solicit tourists and collect tips in front of a group of officers — without being stopped.

“I don’t stay in the designated area,” she boasted. “The cops are so afraid of giving summonses because you can sue them.”

It was only after she stepped out of the DAZ a second time — with a Post reporter watching — that a cop finally told her, “Stay on the green!’’ referring to the zone’s painted pavement.

An NYPD sergeant said his officers can’t do anything about the costumed characters leaving the DAZs to “perform.’’ The panhandlers only have to stay in the areas when they accept money, he said.

But the Times Square Alliance insisted city regulations prohibit the characters from even soliciting outside the DAZs.

The NYPD did not respond to requests for comment — including on whether they plan to beef up enforcement given the open flouting of city regulations.”

NYPD ‘Powerless’ to Stop Naked Illegal Alien Panhandlers

|| Breitbart

 

“Police in New York City expressed frustration about not being able to stop naked panhandlers from harassing the public because most of them are illegal aliens. Their status makes it difficult to enforce tickets because of Mayor de Blasio’s sanctuary city policies.

The city established “Designated Activity Zones” (DAZ) in 2016 to provide a place for “costumed characters” a place to work for tips. Some of these panhandlers, called desnudas, are nude women wearing painted on costumes. Law enforcement officers frequently decline to ticket panhandling violations because most of them are illegal aliens, the Daily Mail reported.

A proposal to license desnudas and other street merchants failed because “most of the panhandlers are illegal immigrants and they wouldn’t register anyway,” a law enforcement source told the New York Post. “Besides, the administration at City Hall isn’t interested in going after illegals in this capacity.”

City officials created the DAZs after media outlets “ugly incidents” that included a “Spider-Man” that refused to release a 13-year-old child until the father paid a $10 tip, and a “Batman” who grabbed a $50 bill from the wallet of an Irish tourist. The City created a total of eight zones.

Times Square Alliance President Tim Tompkins expressed his frustration with the panhandlers and the lack of enforcement.

“The Hulk drives me crazy,” Tompkins told the Post reporter. “Watch — the Hulk always goes and touches people.”

DHS Warns questionably legal DACA Heading for Termination | July 14, 2017

DHS’ Kelly Warns Lawmakers DACA Might Not Be Around For Much Longer

|| Daily Caller

“A potential lawsuit from Republican state attorneys general might force the Trump administration to enact a campaign trail promise.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Republican attorneys general in nine other states sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that said that they will sue the federal government if it does not begin to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The DACA program, which was started by former President Obama, protects around 790,000 illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Wednesday that he can’t assure them that the administration would prevail over this legal challenge.

DHS spokesman David Lapan told The Washington Post, “This is what he’s being told by different attorneys, that if it goes to court it might not survive.”

President Trump said on the campaign trail that he would “immediately terminate” the DACA program that was started through an executive order. He has reneged on this promise and an estimated 98,000 illegal immigrants have received protection from deportation and work permits during the first few months of Trump’s tenure in office.

However, with this lawsuit looming Trump’s promise seems poised to be implemented.

“Jeff Sessions is going to say, ‘Deport them,’” Democratic Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez told the Post. “If you’re going to count on Jeff Sessions to save DACA, then DACA is ended.”

CIA Defends the Muslim Brotherhood as Western Intel Agencies Warn of Dangers, Links to Terror

|| PJ Media

“As the CIA continues to defend their investment in the Muslim Brotherhood to bring “moderate Islamist democracy” to the Middle East, much of the Middle East and our European allies are moving against the group.

I noted here at PJ Media last month that many of America’s Arab allies (Egypt, UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia), as well as Israel, had moved well ahead of the U.S. in addressing the group’s toxic influence:

In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood is one of the central issues in the current Qatar crisis, where these Arab nations are taking active measures against Qatar for its support of the the Brotherhood:

Just last week the foreign minister of Bahrain, whose legislature includes representatives from the Muslim Brotherhood, said that the group is a terrorist organizations and its sympathizers must be prosecuted:

Back in February, I reported that the CIA and the National Intelligence Council (NIC) provided the funds to support Nixon Center researchers Robert Leiken and Steven Brooke to create the “moderate Muslim Brotherhood” narrative during the Bush administration. That became the basis for their Foreign Affairs article of that same title:

Kamala Harris Vows to Block Trump Border Wall: ‘Waste of Money’

|| Breitbart

“On Wednesday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said she will try to block funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall because it is a “waste of money.”

The House Appropriations Committee allocated $1.6 billion to fund the wall this week, and House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Breitbart News this week that the next spending bill must fund Trump’s border wall if Congress wants to avoid a government shutdown.

“There is nothing more critical that has to be funded than funding the border wall for two reasons,” Meadows said. “One is it is a commitment that the president made to the American people and one that he intends on keeping, but the second part of that is for our national security we must secure our borders. And the American people will accept no less.”

It is worth noting that in 2015, an illegal immigrant murdered Kate Steinle in Harris’ sanctuary city of San Francisco while Harris, the former San Francisco district attorney, was California’s attorney general. The illegal immigrant murderer told authorities that he specifally came to San Francisco because he knew it was a sanctuary city. Harris, after reportedly initially tweeting about soccer, reacted to Steinle’s tragic death by pushing for comprehensive amnesty legislation.”

Hawaii Federal Judge Backs Off Challenging Trump Travel Ban | July 7, 2017

Federal Court Denies State of Hawaii Challenge to Trump Administration Travel Ban Definition of ‘Bona Fide Relationship’

|| Breitbart

“U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson “denied an emergency motion filed by the State of Hawaii that would broaden the familial exceptions to President Trump’s travel ban” late Thursday,according to Hawaii News.

“In a motion filed by the state after the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated portions of the ban on June 26, Attorney General Doug Chin argued that the Trump administration wrongly excluded grandparents and other relatives from the list of family members who can obtain visas to travel to the United States,” Hawaii News reported:

Under the ban, people from the six Muslim-majority nations that are impacted by the ban who sought new visas need to have either a ‘close relationship’ with a family member – parent, spouse, son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling – or an entity such as a business within the United States.

Last week, attorneys for the federal government said that the ‘close’ family relationships allowed under the President Trump’s travel ban were based on definitions outlined by immigration law.

The state’s emergency motion – denied on Thursday by Judge Derrick Watson in Honolulu – sought to make sure that the ban couldn’t be enforced against other family members, such as grandparents, aunts and uncles.

“In his ruling, Watson reasoned that since the portion of the ban Hawaii was seeking to clarify was authored by the Supreme Court, the state’s lawyers should seek clarification directly from them,” Hawaii News reported:

“This Court will not upset the Supreme Court’s careful balancing and “equitable judgment” … nor would this district court presume to substitute its own understanding of the stay for that of the originating Court’s “exercise of discretion and judgment,” said Watson.

Watson is the same judge who issued a temporary injunction on March 15 halting President Trump’s Executive Order 13780 that banned the issuance of visas to citizens of six Middle Eastern countries for 90 days and temporarily stopped the admission of refugees for 120 days.

The Trump administration’s appeal of that case went to the Supreme Court, which issued a decision on June 26 that largely upheld the travel and refugee ban, with the condition that visa and refugee applicants who have “bona fide relationships” with American residents will be allowed entry, regardless of the ban.

The Trump administration quickly defined “bona fide relationship” in narrow terms–parent, sibling, child, spouse, or fiance. The State of Hawaii asked for a broader definition that included grandparents and other extended family members.”

The House Passes “Kate’s Law” on anniversary of Kate Steinle’s death | June 30, 2017

House passes ‘Kate’s Law’ and bill targeting sanctuary cities

|| The Hill

 

“The House passed legislation on Thursday to crack down on illegal immigration and enact a key priority of President Trump’s known as “Kate’s Law.”

In largely party line votes, the House approved two bills. One would cut off some federal grants from so-called sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with immigration authorities; the other would impose tougher sentences on criminals who have entered the U.S. illegally multiple times.

“For years, the lack of immigration enforcement and spread of sanctuary policies have cost too many lives,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the author of both bills.

The sanctuary city bill passed 228-195, while the sentencing bill passed 257-167.

Three Democrats defected from their party to support taking away grants from the sanctuary localities: Reps. Matt Cartwright (Pa.), Henry Cuellar (Texas) and Collin Peterson (Minn.). Seven Republicans voted against the bill: Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.), Carlos Curbelo (Fla.), Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.), Dan Donovan (N.Y.), Peter King (N.Y.), Dave Reichert (Wash.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.).

House Democratic leaders encouraged members to oppose the bill to withhold funds from sanctuary cities, but didn’t apply as much pressure on “Kate’s Law,” which establishes higher penalties for criminals who have entered the country illegally.

Twenty-four Democrats voted for “Kate’s Law.” Amash was the only Republican to oppose it.

The sentencing legislation is named after Kate Steinle, who was fatally shot in 2015 in San Francisco by a man who had had seven previous felony convictions and was deported to Mexico on five previous occasions.

Trump had invoked the shooting on the campaign trail to promote his immigration agenda, including at his speech at the Republican National Convention last summer when he accepted the party’s presidential nomination.

The convention featured speeches from parents whose children were killed by immigrants in the U.S. illegally, and the White House has tried to keep a focus on the issue since then.

Three of first lady Melania Trump’s guests at the president’s address to Congress in February were people who had family members killed by undocumented immigrants.

During his address to Congress, Trump announced a new Homeland Security office called Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) to assist victims of crimes committed by immigrants in the country illegally.

Trump earlier Thursday called the two immigration bills “vital to public safety and national security.”

“I’m calling on all lawmakers to put the safety of American families first. Let’s pass these bills through the House, through the Senate, and send them to my desk. I will give them the fastest approval, the fastest signature, that you have ever seen.”

Despite the House passage of the two bills on Thursday, Democrats are likely to present a roadblock in the Senate.”

Big Win for Trump as Supreme Court Upholds ‘Travel Ban’ | June 26, 2017

Sessions: Supreme Court travel ban order a victory for separation of powers

|| The Hill

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday said the Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate part of President Trump’s travel ban is a victory for the separation of powers.

“Today’s order is also an important step towards restoring the separation of powers between the branches of the federal government. The Court’s decision recognizes that the Executive has the responsibility to protect the safety and security of the American people under the Constitution of the United States and its laws,” Sessions said in a statement.

“The judiciary serves, pursuant to their oath, under the same Constitution and these same laws. This case raises profound questions about the proper balance of these constitutional powers, and we are eager to advance our views on these important issues.”

The court’s decision makes it so that individuals who cannot show a relationship with a person or entity in the United States will be temporarily barred from entering the country once the court order takes effect in 72 hours.

Trump’s executive order sought to impose a temporary ban on nationals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.

Sessions, in his statement, said he was pleased with the decision and argued it is “crucial” to “properly vet those seeking to come to America.”

“Through Article II of the Constitution, the founders of our country vested the Executive Branch with a great responsibility: to ensure the national security of our country,” Sessions said.

“I am committed to defending the President’s ability to exercise that responsibility and the Department of Justice is confident that the United States Supreme Court will uphold this constitutional and necessary executive order.”

The Supreme Court in its Monday decision also said it would hear the Trump administration’s appeal of a lower court’s order that had halted the travel ban.”

Supreme Court Reinstates Part of Immigration Order In Clear Victory For Trump

|| JonathanTurley.org

“It appears that the Battle Royale over immigration is on.  The Supreme Court issued the following order: “We grant the petitions for certiorari and grant the stay applications in part.”  The Court also reversed in the state in the major religious clause case in Trinity Lutheran.

Here is the stay language: “We grant the Government’s applications to stay the injunctions” blocking the implementation of the ban “to the extent the injunctions prevent enforcement of Section 2(c).”  Section 2(c) deals with the suspension of entry from six countries and “foreign nationals who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”

Here is the money quote:

“An American individual or entity that has a bona fide relationship with a particular person seeking to enter the country as a refugee can legitimately claim concrete hardship if that person is excluded,” the Court wrote. “As to these individuals and entities, we do not disturb the injunction. But when it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, for the reasons we have set out, the balance tips in favor of the Government’s compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.”

The parties will not be affected, but it is a victory for the Trump Administration in staying those who want to come without family in the country or other bona fide relationship.  As previously discussed, I believe that the odds favor the Administration in prevailing in the long run.”

Soros Legal Alum Helps Get Illegal Alien MS-13 Member Released

|| Breitbart

“An illegal alien MS-13 gang member was released by a federal judge after two immigration attorneys lobbied for his release.

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon ordered the 17-year-old, self-admitted illegal alien MS-13 gang member be released from federal custody, despite his criminal and gang-affiliated history.

The illegal alien previously admitted to selling drugs in Honduras and witnessing multiple murders committed by fellow MS-13 members. Now, he will be allowed to live freely in the U.S.

In an interview with the Washington Post, the illegal alien spoke about how being a member of the violent MS-13 gang felt like a family:

“It was like the family I couldn’t find at home,” he said. “I thought nobody loved me. But when I found them, I said, ‘This is my family. They love me.’ ”

Older gang members gave him money, alcohol, marijuana and cocaine. But soon they demanded he sell drugs, too, including heroin and “piedra,” or crack.

“I began to see things, like them torturing people,” the teen said. “For rent. Because they belonged to another gang. Because they had screwed up somehow.”

The illegal alien gang member arrived in the U.S. as an ‘unaccompanied minor child,’ who are turned over to the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

As Breitbart Texas reported, the federal government has continued placing unaccompanied minor children in MS-13 gang hot-spots across the U.S.

One of the two attorneys who helped fight for the MS-13 gang member’s release, Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg and Rebecca Wolozin with the Legal Aid Justice Center, has ties to left-wing billionaire George Soros.

Wolozin previously worked for Soros’ Open Society Foundation as a ‘Legal Research Intern,’ according to her online resume.”

Cost Disputes Could Derail Plans To Track Foreign Departures In US Airports

|| DailyCaller

“The federal government has developed a system to track foreigners leaving the country through U.S. airports, but disputes with airlines may prevent the timely application of the technology.

The new tracking system would rely on photographs taken of all passengers boarding international flights at their departure gate, allowing authorities to know with certainty whether a foreigner has left the country and where they went.

After nearly two decades spent developing technology to track individuals who enter the U.S. legally and then stay past their legal departure date, and repeated congressional mandates demanding an exit tracking system, the federal government has met resistance from airlines who don’t see the benefit of implementing it.

“Right now, there is no benefit to us. We’re not interested in adding another 10 minutes to the boarding process,” one airline official told the Wall Street Journal in Monday article.

John Wagner, who heads the program for the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection agency told a congressional committee last month that DHS needs to rely on airlines to run the cameras in order to avoid an “astronomical” cost to taxpayers.

“We’re out of time and we’re out of excuses,” Wagner said. “We can’t do this without the airlines.”

Wagner also disputed the claim that the new system will inconvenience airlines, pointing out that the new technology would eliminate the necessity of checking passports.

Airline officials denied the technology would allow them to stop checking passports, saying they still have a responsibility to make sure passengers aren’t flown into other countries without identification.

The exit tracking system, which has received bipartisan support, would prevent individuals from remaining in the country illegally by having someone else exit using their passport. It would also prevent people from leaving the country undetected by using someone else’s passport.

In the past two years hundreds of thousands of people have overstayed their visas. This problem received significant congressional attention after the September 11 attacks when it was discovered several of the hijackers were in the country on expired visas.

The DHS has run a number of exit tracking pilot programs at various airports around the country. The central obstacle the department faced was determining a method to make sure individuals reported as having departed the country actually boarded the flights they were supposed to be on.

There is ample opportunity for someone to get through security and then simply leave the airport, since travelers pass through airport security checkpoints well before they reach their departure gate. The DHS successfully navigated this obstacle by developing a plan in which cameras are installed in departure gates. The cameras would scan passengers faces directly prior to boarding, the system would then cross references the images with the list of passengers who are supposed to be on the flight, confirming the individual boarded their flight.

Wagner explained that he hopes airlines will cooperate in implementing the technology but said the DHS must implement the programs with or without their cooperation. “Congress has been pretty clear about the requirement,” he told the Wall Street Journal.”
