Scam Alert: Fake ICE Agents Calling to Solicit Money, Threaten Deportation

Scammers posing as Immigration and Customs Enforcement are reportedly targeting immigrants, calling them on the telephone and threatening them with deportation if they do not turn over sums of money. . .

Palos Park Police Department Chief Joe Miller told the outlet that an area teacher and professional have been hit with the same phone calls. The phone calls, according to the outlet, demand payment via gift cards or money orders. The caller also reportedly threatens that there is a warrant out for the person’s arrest. . .

Numbers showing up on victims caller IDs are actual DHS numbers, part of a telephone spoofing scam targeting individuals throughout the country. Spoofing is the deliberate falsifying of information transmitted to a caller ID display to disguise an identity. . .

The Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General issued an alert about the very same scam in which people were disguising themselves as ICE agents and demanding money. . .

The perpetrators of the scam represent themselves as employees with “U.S. Immigration” or other government entities. They alter caller ID systems to make it appear that the call is coming from the DHS HQ Operator number (202-282-8000) or the DHS Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) number (202-401-1474). The scammers obtain or verify personally identifiable information from their victims through various tactics, including by telling individuals that they are the victims of identity theft. The scammers also pose as law enforcement or immigration officials and threaten victims with arrest unless they make payments to the scammers using a variety of methods. The scammers have also emailed victims from email addresses ending in “uscis.org.” Many of the scammers reportedly have pronounced accents.

Justice Department Tells Supreme Court: DACA Amnesty Is Illegal

President Barack Obama’s 2012 DACA amnesty is “at best … legally questionable; at worst, it is illegal,” the Department of Justice says in a legal brief to the Supreme Court.

The department’s legal brief says President Donald Trump has the political and legal authority to shut down the DACA amnesty for roughly 800,000 illegals who were brought into the United States by their parents.

But Trump’s 2017 shutdown has been stalled by progressive judges, forcing the U.S. Supreme Court to make the final decision. The court’s hearing on DACA is expected in November, and the decision is expected in early 2020, during the 2020 election campaign. . .

The lower courts’ intervention also denies Trump a big bargaining chip in routine congressional debates over immigration. For example, the courts’ intervention means neither the Democrats nor Trump can swap DACA in exchange for reforms of the nation’s loophole-ridden asylum and child-migrant rules. Those flawed rules have allowed several hundred thousand Central American migrants into the nation’s labor and housing markets since 2018.

The DACA amnesty also encourages more migrants to bring their children into the United States in the hope of getting a future DACA-2 amnesty. Democrat legislators have encouraged this hope by offering Dreamer legislation which amnesties illegals who arrived after Obama’s amnesty.

Man Loses Gun Rights Thanks to Red Flag Laws and a Case of Mistaken Identity

. . .Just last week, a man in Florida had his firearms confiscated simply because he had the same name as a criminal. That’s right. A man was stripped of his Second Amendment right…because the police failed to differentiate a law-abiding citizen with a thug.

According to Ammoland, Jonathan Carpenter received a certified letter from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services saying his concealed handgun permit had been suspended for “acts of domestic violence or acts of repeat violations.” . . .

The Sheriff’s office supplied Carpenter with a copy of the injunction. In the statement, the plaintiff stated that she rented a room out to a “Jonathan Edward Carpenter” and his girlfriend. She alleged that this Carpenter was a drug dealer who broke her furniture and sold her belongings without her permission. He had a gun, and she feared for her life. She was not sure if the firearm was legal or not. . .

The man in question is 5’8. Carpenter is 5’11. The alleged drug dealer is 110lbs. Carpenter is over 200. The man has black hair. Carpenter is completely bald. Last but not least, the man in question is covered in tattoos, and Carpenter only has a few.

. . .

Carpenter’s firearms had to remain in police custody until the plaintiff can say, in court, that he’s not the man that she filed a complaint against. He’d then have to petition the court to get his firearms back…and he would have to bear the cost. Carpenter will get his day in court later this month.

Ouch: Jill Biden Doesn’t Exactly Give a Ringing Endorsement of Her Husband

That’s basically the message from Dr. Jill Biden, wife of presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden, who recently told Democrats that they might have to “swallow a little bit” in order to vote for her lackluster husband, since, like it or not, he’s the most electable candidate in the field.

“Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare, than Joe is,” Mrs. Biden said, “but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘Okay, I personally like so-and-so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.” . . .

“Yes, I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that,” Mrs. Biden continued, “but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race.”

“If you’re looking at that, you’ve got to look at the polls,” the former Second Lady said, noting that people should ignore the “polls don’t mean anything” chants because of their consistency: “If they’re consistent, and they’re consistently saying the same thing, I think you can’t dismiss that.”

“If your goal is to beat Donald Trump, we have to get someone who can beat Donald Trump,” she added, emphasizing that Democrats need to gain on Independent and disaffected Republican voters.

Fake News: CNN Accuses ICE of Ripping Baby Away From Nursing Mother – Who Wasn’t Nursing

According to ICE, some media outlets are now trying to lie about a woman breastfeeding a child in order to thwart immigration law.

It all began with a Jackson Clarion-Ledger story last Thursday, with the headline: “ICE raid separates 4-month-old baby from breastfeeding mom,” referring to an anonymous illegal alien detained among the 680 netted in the large ICE raid in Mississippi on August 7. In prose full of sympathy for illegal immigrants and for treating them as if they came here legally, the Clarion-Ledger quoted an anonymous dad saying he had to bottle-feed a four-month-old baby girl separated from her mother. It reported this as fact without citing any sources and without investigating the claim.

Throughout the past few days, the media ran with the claim as their latest poster child for undermining immigration enforcement. Rachel Maddow frantically tweeted it out.

Then, yesterday, CNN ran an article with the name of the mother at the center of this allegation, Maria Domingo-Garcia. CNN reported the story as if the illegal immigrants were as American as apple pie, simply going to work one day and being grabbed by stormtroopers for no reason.

Once again, the media ate out of the hands of unethical immigration attorneys. CNN obtained the following statement from the attorney:

“ICE is, once again, lying,” said Ybarra Maldonado. “She said nobody’s asked her — not even one time — if she’s been breastfeeding.”

“Can you imagine having a 4-month-old baby and being ripped away from that baby, unsure of who is taking care of her?” he said. “She’s devastated.”

Manzanarez added Domingo-Garcia told her that detention center staff has asked her only if she has a 4-month-old daughter, to which she replied “yes.”

I began to get suspicious when the CNN article mentioned that an ICE official said this mother was specifically asked by a medical examiner if she was breastfeeding and answered, “No.” Immigration lawyers regularly go to sympathetic reporters and fabricate stories in order to get the media to essentially nullify the rule of law with virtue-signaling that often turns out to be based on false facts. Well, according to ICE, that is exactly what happened here.

Not only was Domingo asked whether she was nursing on the day she was detained at the facility, to which she answered negatively, it turns out she was screened again yesterday. “Pursuant to subsequent media reports that falsely alleged Ms. Domingo-Garcia was being detained despite being a nursing mother, an ICE Health Services Corps nurse practitioner conducted an additional medical examination of Ms. Domingo-Garcia, which verified today she is not lactating,” said ICE spokesman Bryan Cox in a statement to CR last night.

That means she was screened again on August 19 to confirm she is not lactating.

“Unlawfully present Mexican national Maria Domingo-Garcia was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during the execution of federal criminal search warrants in Mississippi August 7. All ICE detainees receive medical, dental and mental health intake screening within 12 hours of arriving at each detention facility; that screening includes a woman being asked if she is breast feeding. During her initial medical screening, Ms. Domingo-Garcia answered no to that question.” (For more from the author of “Fake News: CNN Accuses ICE of Ripping Baby Away From Nursing Mother – Who Wasn’t Nursing” please click HERE)

A Single ICE Bust Seizes Enough Fentanyl to Kill ‘750,000 People’

Federal immigration authorities seized 1.2 kilos of fentanyl — enough to kill hundreds of thousands of people — from a former sheriff’s deputy and his son in West Virginia as part of an ongoing narcotics investigation, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) press release says.

45-year-old Dale McCallister and his 76-year-old father, Larry McCallister — a retired Cabell County deputy sheriff — have been indicted “with various drug and gun crimes” after federal agents seized around 1.2 kilograms of fentanyl, 300 grams of methamphetamine, over $8,000 in cash, and a .357 magnum revolver, the release says. $4,000 of the seized cash was from an earlier undercover purchase of fentanyl.

“It is particularly detestable to see trusted community members and a former law enforcement officer seeking to profit from such a destructive and sure poison,” HSI Washington, D.C., Special Agent in Charge Raymond Villanueva said in a statement. “I am exceptionally proud of the specialized skills unified in the new Mountain and Old Dominion BEST that identified this poison and prevented its distribution.”

Fentanyl is an extremely potent opioid and a key driver of overdose deaths in the ongoing drug crisis. Just a tiny amount of it can kill someone. According to the DEA, “as little as two milligrams is a lethal dosage in most people.”

United States Attorney Mike Stuart said, “Had the fentanyl in this case hit the streets, potentially more than 750,000 people could have lost their lives to overdose.”

“Massive quantities of fentanyl. Massive quantities of methamphetamine. And a gun,” Stuart’s statement added. “All of this incredibly heinous activity was based out of a normal house on a normal street in Barboursville.”

Though ICE does not lay out what relation these arrests have to immigration or border enforcement, it does explain that it was handled by the Border Enforcement Security Task Force (BEST), the mission of which is to “combat emerging and existing transnational criminal organizations.”

In an article breaking down the origins of the current drug crisis in spring 2018, Conservative Review senior editor Daniel Horowitz explained that a large part of America’s drug crisis is being driven by America’s illegal immigration crisis.

Sanctuary policies are also a key driver, Horowitz explained elsewhere:

Every time the media focuses a camera on a desperate “migrant” seeking a better life, just remember that when the cameras are not rolling and when the border agents are preoccupied, there are tons of deadly substances pouring over the border that will make their way to a sanctuary city hub, then to be distributed to every corner of this country and kill off our youth. Open-borders policies are not so compassionate after all.

CHILLING CLAIM: Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein Given 3 Young Girls as Birthday Present

By Daily Wire. Registered sex offender and multimillionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein allegedly had three poor 12-year-old girls living in France flown in as a “birthday present” for him from a friend, an alleged sexual assault victim claimed in a Florida civil suit.

The disturbing allegations resurfaced in light of Epstein’s apparent suicide in his Metropolitan Correction Center jail cell last week.

“The worst one that I heard from his own mouth was this pretty 12 year old girls he had flown in for his birthday,” alleged victim Virginia Roberts, who now goes by Virginia Giuffre, said of Epstein, according to The Sun.

“It was a surprise birthday gift from one of his friends and they were from France. I did see them, I did meet them,” she said, noting, “Jeffrey bragged afterwards after he met them that they were 12-year-olds and flown over from France because they’re really poor over there, and their parents needed the money or whatever the case is and they were absolutely free to stay and flew out.”

According to a report from The Daily Beast, “These same civil complaints allege that young girls from South America, Europe, and the former Soviet republics, few of whom spoke English, were recruited for Epstein’s sexual pleasure.” (Read more from “Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein Given 3 Young Girls as Birthday Present” HERE)

Triplet Sisters Supplied as Birthday Present by Top French Model Scout

By Megan Sheets. [T]he French girls, believed to be sisters, were a gift from Epstein’s longtime acquaintance and frequent guest Jean-Luc Brunel.

[Roberts Giuffre] said she saw the three girls with her own eyes and that Epstein had repeatedly described to her how the girls had massaged him and performed oral sex on him. They were flown back to France the next day.

‘He was so excited about the entire event, replayed over and over again over the next course of weeks how cute they were and how you could tell they were really young,’ she said.

‘He went on to tell me how Brunel bought them in Paris from their parents, offering them the usual sums of money, visas, and modeling career prospects.

‘Laughing the whole way through, Jeffrey thought it was absolutely brilliant how easily money seduced all walks of life, nothing or no one that couldn’t be bought.’ (Read more about Epstein’s sickening birthday present HERE)

Constitution Party Gets Fraud-Laced Voting System Thrown Out, State May Have to Return to Paper Ballots; State Officials Were “Not Credible”

Thursday Judge Amy Totenberg of the U.S. District Court of North Georgia banned the current Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting systems from further use in Georgia elections beginning in 2020. The DRE system produces results that cannot be verified by the voter, audited by election officials or recounted for candidates. The court found the system impairs Georgia voters’ Constitutional right to vote in any federal election.

Constitution Party of Georgia (CPGA) Chairman Ricardo Davis is a plaintiff in the case that obtained the landmark ruling; no other political party had leadership that participated as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. It was the second federal election court win for CPGA plaintiffs in three years. CPGA plaintiffs participated in a successful ballot access lawsuit that reduced Presidential ballot access petitioning requirements by 85% in the 2016 election cycle.

The landmark ruling essentially reverses a 2008 Georgia Supreme Court decision where the court refused to apply a strict scrutiny legal standard to the Constitutional right to vote for Georgia voters. Davis and CPGA Elections Director Garland Favorito where plaintiffs in that case.

The ruling Thursday came as no surprise to those who attended a July hearing that revealed the state had concealed key internet exposures and vulnerabilities from the court. Totenberg’s comments cited “inconsistent candor” by the defendants in “denial and dodging” of the “broad scale vulnerability” involving the 2017 internet breach of the election servers at Kennesaw State. She concluded: “the Defendants’ contention that the servers were … not intentionally destroyed or wiped is flatly not credible.”

Judge Totenberg’s ruling requires the state to implement a backup plan of hand marked paper ballots if the system replacing the current DRE system is not ready for the March Presidential Primary.

Ilhan Omar’s District Named Worst District for Black Americans

The district that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) represents in Congress — Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District — is the worst congressional district in the nation for black people, a new study revealed last week.

Financial website 24/7 Wall Street released the details of its study last week that sought to measure “socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans by congressional districts to identify the worst congressional districts for black Americans.”

Researchers studied several key metrics using data from the U.S. Census Bureau: cost of living-adjusted median household income, unemployment and poverty rates, educational attainment, and homeownership rates.

The data showed that Omar’s district has the greatest socioeconomic disparities between black and white Americans of any congressional district in the U.S.

“Black area residents are about four times more likely to live below the poverty line than white residents and three times more likely to be unemployed. Disparate outcomes along racial lines in the district are largely the legacy of historic racism,” the study said. “Minneapolis is one of several Midwestern cities that enacted restrictive housing covenants and exclusionary zoning policies in the early 20th century. These policies impact residential patterns to this day.” (Read more from “Ilhan Omar’s District Named Worst District for Black Americans” HERE)

Photos Surface Showing Mock Assassination of President Trump at Dem’s Fundraising Event

An Illinois lawmaker has apologized after photos from his fundraising event showed attendees simulating an assassination of President Donald Trump.

Photos taken at a fundraising event for Illinois state Sen. Martin Sandoval (D) showed one attendee pointing a fake gun at another attendee wearing a Trump mask and traditional Mexican clothes. The person wearing the Trump mask is seen grasping his chest implying that he has been shot.

According to WCIA-TV, Sandoval hosted the fundraising event Friday night in Winfield, a suburb of Chicago. Donors paid a minimum of $250 to attend the event, which was hosted at a golf club.

It’s not clear if Sandoval knew about the pictures when they were taken, but Sandoval is pictured with the man who held the toy gun in the controversial pictures. . .

“As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong. I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands,” Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) said.
