Republicans to push for immigration clampdown

afppeterking Republicans to push for immigration clampdown

WASHINGTON — The Republican majority in the US House of Representatives, which takes office on Wednesday, is preparing to introduce measures that would dramatically tighten US immigration policy.

The new legislative agenda comes after President Barack Obama’s Democrats lost control of the lower chamber of the US Congress in November elections.

However the hard-line measures, which range from an increase in law enforcement personnel on the US-Mexico border to denying citizenship to children born to illegal immigrants, are likely to face opposition in the Senate, where Democrats maintain a slim majority.

One of the most powerful advocates for tougher immigration laws is Peter King, a Republican representative from New York and the incoming chairman of the influential House Committee on Homeland Security.

Obama “does not have the sense of urgency” when it comes to immigration, King told Fox News on Monday, “and he could have done a much better job.”

Obama has pushed for a broad immigration overhaul since taking office two years ago but has prioritized other issues such as health care reform.

The administration has however deported record numbers of illegal immigrants — more than 392,000 in the period between October 2009 and September 2010, according to government figures.

Some 11 million immigrants, mostly from Latin America, are believed to be living in the United States without proper documents.

King wants the government to continue funding the 1,200 National Guards that Obama ordered to the border with Mexico in July 2010 to help crack down on smuggling and drug trafficking.

The troops, which support federal agents, were deployed to provide a one-year bridge for the US Customs and Border Patrol to hire and train about 1,000 more agents, officials said at the time.

King also wants to revive an expensive border surveillance system, a “virtual fence” of radars and ground sensors that cost more than a billion dollars but was plagued by so many errors that it was scrapped in 2009.

King admitted that shutting the system down “was a legitimate call” by the Obama administration.

“But they have done nothing — nothing in the year since then. This is a program which is absolutely essential. And yet, once there were problems with it, they put it aside and have done nothing whatsoever,” King told Fox.

Separately, King’s colleague Lamar Smith from Texas, the new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that he wants to revive debate on the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution, a measure approved in 1868 that guarantees US citizenship to anyone born on US soil.

Conservative Republicans have argued that the measure encourages illegal aliens to have children in the United States in a bid to thwart deportation.

The last overhaul of US immigration law was in 1985, when Republican Ronald Reagan was president.

While sweeping changes to federal immigration law may be unlikely to pass due to the spilt Congress, Republican legislatures in at least six states are set to propose measures similar to a controversial Arizona law making it a crime to be in the state without proper immigration papers.

A federal judge has put most of the Arizona law on hold pending an Obama administration legal challenge — but that has not stopped the states from preparing the proposals, including measures ordering state workers to report illegal immigrants, according to immigration advocates.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
