The Planned Re-election of Obama – Revolutionary Style

By Douglas J. Hagmann  via Northeast Intelligence Network

The Obama administration, including his czars and along with his closest Progressive supporters, are planning a manufactured insurgency against America.

The Contact

7 May 2012:  It was not the proverbial 3:00 a.m. phone call, but close enough. And it was not made to the White House, but to my house, which is not white nor is it in DC. It was about 2:30 a.m. on 25 April 2012, and the call itself was somewhat unexpected. I had anticipated the telephone call from my DHS insider much earlier the previous day, but our schedules didn’t synch up. I was traveling on an investigative assignment, while my source was in meetings all day. I had just fallen asleep, and was slumbering no more than 20 minutes when the phone rang.

In most households, a ringing phone at that time of night causes concern for everyone who hears it. In my household, it seems to surprise only my surly, 140 pound light-sleeping German Shepherd. He let out an objective grunt as I stepped over him to take the call in another room. It was “Rosebud,” the code name given of my insider source.

About Rosebud

Just a little bit here about my source and his “super-secret code name.” I’ve known this government insider since 1979, when he first became a municipal patrol officer. He took a job in a bigger city and had a very successful run as a cop. Before retirement and after the events of 9/11, he was tapped by the feds, where he worked in various capacities under the umbrella of DHS. He worked his way up, and suddenly found himself in what he terms the inner sanctum of the “TEC” building. TEC, he explains, is  an acronym for what he calls “The Estrogen Challenged,” which houses the upper echelon of the Department of Homeland Security. I’ll leave it at that.

As far as his code name, it originates from an incident that occurred at the end of the disco era. It is something that we both privately laugh about, but rarely ever talk about. His “code name” is known to him, me, and at the time, a young woman who has since vanished amid the glitter of a disco balls and constant replays of the Bee Gees in a dark nightclub some 32 years ago and has no “cloak and dagger” origins.

But he is real, his position serious, and his knowledge vast. Unfortunately, that’s what makes the whole situation frightening and deadly serious.

The information

It began on Wednesday, 2 May 2012 with a 45-minute interview on TruNews with Rick Wiles when I first disclosed the information I received the previous week from my source. The information I relayed “went viral,” as they say, across the internet.

                     

To support the statements I made during that interview, I am showing my handwritten notes taken contemporaneously during our conversation. My notes consist of two pages and are, at various points,  admittedly difficult to decipher. I ask that points not be deducted for my penmanship given the time of the morning which they were taken.

According to my source, there is talk among the highest levels of the uppermost echelon of the Department of Homeland Security, which he describes as effectively under the control of Barack Hussein Obama. During this call, he said that the DHS is actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States. He then corrected himself, stating that “a civil war” is the more appropriate term. Certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it,” stated my source.

“The DHS takes their marching orders from the Obama administration, from Obama himself, but mostly from his un-appointed czars. And Jarrett, especially Valerie Jarrett. Don’t think for a minute that the administration is doing anything to stabilize events in the U.S. They are revolutionaries, and revolutionaries thrive on chaos,” he added.

My source stated that he has not seen things this bad since he began working within DHS. “It’s like they [DHS agency heads] don’t care about what the American people see or feel about what the DHS agencies are doing. They figure that if the average American will put up with being “sexually groped and nuked” just to fly, they’ll accept almost anything. “That’s why their actions are becoming more overt.  ”It’s in your face and the brass actually chuckle about it” said my source.

New Information

Astounded by the information my source provided “going viral,” I spoke to him again early Sunday morning. This was a scheduled telephone call (as noted on page 2 of my notes) based on a high level meeting of DHS personnel that was scheduled for and took place in Chantilly, Virginia on Saturday, 5 May 2012.  He hoped to provide me with more information to supplement that which he already given. Although he was not personally present, his source was. While he would not say who was at the meeting on Saturday or give its precise location, he said that the many of the names would be recognizable. He spoke to his source late Saturday night.

I contacted him on his cellular phone early Sunday morning to get the promised update.

“Geez, nice job on getting the word out about what’s really going on at DHS and in this administration,” were the first words out of his mouth, followed by “thanks a lot.” I asked him why he would be thanking me. “I just wanna tell you that I’m going to have to hire someone to start my car, and I’m surely not going for any rides in small planes in the immediate future,” he said with a bit of nervous laughter. “I hope no one finds out who I am or it’s going to be more than my pension I’ll have to worry about.”

“I can tell you word is getting out that people are starting to wake up, which is causing a lot of ‘pissed off brass.’  I can’t tell if they are more desperate or upset about the exposure, but the tone is starting to become a lot more tense. I hope that we’re having something to do with that,” he added.

With that, he provided me with additional information to supplement that which he already given me on 25 April. For clarity purposes, I have combined the information together from both contacts. The following information includes the updated information provided to me Sunday morning.

Obama the revolutionary

Metaphorically speaking, there’s a revolution going on in the U.S., propped up by three legs. Economic chaos, chaos through racial division, and chaos through class division, all joined by one core element: Barack Hussein Obama and his stable of unelected czars. Obama is using the lessons learned in 1968 as the template for 2012, and many of those who were active in the late 1960′s are now calling the shots for 2012.

“The Obama administration and many of the un-appointed ‘czars,’, either directly or indirectly, are engaged in covert activities with the occupy movement, various labor protests, and other subversive activities inside the U.S.,” stated my source. Using untracked campaign funds, they are paying people to infiltrate the various movements to cause physical destruction of property and disrupt commerce. That began last year, but has increased ten-fold already this year,” stated this source. He added that they are using some lower level DHS agents to make the payments under the context of tracking subversives, but they are the unwitting subversives. “It’s like Fast & Furious” but in the social realm,” he added.

“Obama is using some high profile people as pawns to foment the revolution. I heard several times through very credible sources that [Louis] Farrakhan is on the CIA payroll. Other have been named as well, but I’m not prepared to identify them yet. Farrakhan is to coordinate the Blacks and the Muslims to prepare for riots this summer, using any means necessary.”

“Mentioned at the meeting Saturday were methods to use pawns to simulate the rioting in the Arab Spring countries, but to the benefit of this administration. A controlled chaos thing,” stated my source. They envision rioting starting in the urban areas first, such as New York and other major cities, followed by a disruption of business and commerce. This will allow the DHS to mobilize their various teams into the streets of America without objection of the people,” stated my source.

“They want to restrict travel, if not through high energy prices, then by checkpoints and curfews mandated by rioting and unrest. They understand we are the most well-armed nation in the world, yet they are aware of our vulnerabilities and intend to fully exploit them,” he added. The whole purpose is to keep Obama in office for another term, no matter how unpopular he is, as he is not finished changing our country from a Constitutional Republic. This is the run-up to the 2012 elections, or perhaps causing enough chaos to delay them – indefinitely.”

One statement that rattled me more than anything was that a great number of those already in power, whether in appointed or elected positions, actually want to see Obama stay in power, according to this source. “This is what we’ve been working toward and we’re closer now than we’ve ever been. If we lose now, we might not have another chance.”

This chilling common goal also explains the lack of interest in the Constitutional legitimacy of Obama. It is common knowledge that Obama is not an American, and neither is his agenda. Of course, criticism of his bona-fides feeds into the cries of racism, despite the massive fraud perpetrated on the American people. Party lines are meaningless when the common objective is the revolutionary overtaking of America.

Obama, the professor of Keynesian economics

“The Obama administration is working closely with Bernanke, Geithner and others not to save our economy, but to outright destroy it. He is not the first or only one to try this, but the most effective and most vetted for that purpose. Do you actually think that the fact that Timothy Geithner’s father worked with Obama’s mother in Indonesia was coincidental,” stated my source rhetorically. “What we’re seeing now is the fourth quarter of a game that started long ago, which also currently involves the Clintons. Obama would not be where he is if it were not for the Clintons, and to a lesser extent, Bush, but that’s for  other reasons.  Don’t be fooled, the Clintons never left or lost power,” he added.

“There are file drawers full of papers, heavily guarded papers at the ‘TEC building’  so I can only imagine what’s in them, about international financial dealings going back decades. I do know, or at least I was told, that they involve organizations that are the so-called conspiracy fringe groups, such as the Bilderberg group, the Trilateral Commission, and people including George Soros, Henry Kissinger, and current leaders of big industry. Some are fossils. They’ve been around a long time. Others are up-and-coming. They’ve got one thing in common though, and that is to put in place a global system of governance, including a common currency. Economics is a huge part of this revolution, and they want to replace the dollar, to see it collapse. They expect, that is, they are working toward this very goal, and when this happens, it will cause chaos like never seen before in the history of this country.”

“Why do you think Jon Corzine is not only walking around, but heavily involved in Obama fundraising? They know it’s just a matter of time that Europe will implode economically, and when it does, start counting the days before we see massive hyperinflation and the ultimate collapse of the U.S. dollar,” stated this insider.  ”What will it look like in the streets of America when the general population realizes that there is no money? That’s right, chaos.”

Obama & the planned racial divide

According to this insider, the Trayvon Martin case is just the tip of the iceberg. “You certainly don’t have to be a genius to understand how Obama and his team played the public on this issue, and it’s far from over. But that’s not the sole element of what we’ll see this summer.”

“Remember the shots fired at the White House not too long ago,” asked my source. There was an element of outrage that was squandered, according to ‘team Obama.’  In fact, Obama and some of his closest advisors, especially [Valerie] Jarrett were incredibly angered that the outrage was seemingly tempered. It should have been an opportunity to use our force against the Tea Parties, the gun clingers, the Constitutionalists, and everyone who has complained about Obama. DHS should have stepped in right then, and used that event to start the clampdown,” this source stated about White House comments.

This source stated that from that point on, the DHS must become more responsive and aggressive.

Watch for a false flag event against Obama or his family, something that will outrage ‘black America.’ It will be carefully choreographed, but executed in a manner that will evoke the ugliest of reactions and create racial chaos in this country that will make the Watts riots, 1968 and the Rodney King riots pale in comparison. That’s the third leg in this.”

The planned end-game

Does Obama look worried about the upcoming elections? Look at his lavish vacations, his limited work schedule, and those with whom he is working.  This is a very dangerous man who has, as his closest advisors, people who have orchestrated the revolutions of the 1960′s. They know the “trigger points” in  America.

The Obama administration, including his czars and along with his closest Progressive supporters, are planning a manufactured insurgency against America. He is using the media to his advantage to garner both sympathy and support for his unfinished goals. He is desperately seeking a way to remain in office, even if it means the surreal prospect of an indefinite postponement of elections – if it can be pulled off. So far, he’s got the support of the majority of the DHS “brass” behind him, according to my source.

“They’re power hungry, and they want to remain in charge,” stated this source.

The “surreal” aspect of suspended elections won’t look so surreal when you see any or all of the “trigger points” take place in the not-so-distant future.

“The end-game plan for America is its destruction as a Constitutional Republic, with the assistance of the agencies under the umbrella of the DHS.”

My source stated one more thing that seemed to tie things together. He urged me to recall the quote by made by Henry Kissinger who was speaking at a Bilderberg meeting at Evian, France, on 21 May 1992:

Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.

That threat need not be from beyond. All it might take is a world of starving, broke and desperate people

DHS Environmental Justice Strategy – More Agenda 21 and Income Redistribution???

By Kasey Jachim

Wow, just when you thought it couldn’t get more interesting – the Department of Homeland Security has released its latest document – Environmental Justice Strategy .  First they order 450 million rounds of ammunition and now they have joined a Memorandum of Understanding on Environmental Justice (EJ MOU) to participate in government-wide environmental justice efforts.  Are they planning another round of class warfare or are they anticipating the next American Revolution?

Beginning in 2012, DHS will provide a concise report on progress during the previous fiscal year toward achieving the goals of Executive Order 12898, signed by President Clinton in 1994. In a Presidential memorandum accompanying EO 12898, President Clinton identified Title VI as one of several federal laws already in existence that can help “to prevent minority communities and low-income communities from being subject to disproportionately high and adverse environmental effects.”  The Executive Order was recently implemented by the Obama administration in several key governmental departments and agencies including, but not limited to, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Labor, the Department of Energy, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and the Department of Health and Human Services.

What is Environmental Justice?  “As described in the 2010 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR), our Nation’s vision of homeland security is a homeland safe and secure, resilient against terrorism and other hazards, and where American interests and aspirations and the American way of life can thrive. In seeking to fulfill this vision, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aspires to avoid burdening minority and low-income populations with a disproportionate share of any adverse human health or environmental risks associated with our efforts to secure the Nation. DHS joins with other departments and agencies to appropriately include environmental justice practices in our larger mission efforts involving federal law enforcement and emergency response activities.”

Another huge bureaucracy has been established for “Environmental Justice” thanks to the continued efforts of the current administration to control and implement environmental  and socio-economic guidelines in accordance with Agenda 21 and income redistribution.

Two DHS headquarters offices, the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer OCAO) and the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL), will lead efforts to ensure the success of the Environmental Justice Strategy. There will be four additional headquarters offices to provide critical support for the activities of OCAO/OSEP and CRCL:

  • Office of the General Counsel provides legal advice, guidance, and review for all environmental justice policy.
  • Management, Office of the Chief Financial Officer, provides appropriate guidance to ensure environmental justice in the administration of DHS grant programs.
  • Intergovernmental Affairs establishes and maintains appropriate relationships with state, local, and tribal governments to ensure adequate consideration of environmental justice issues in the Department’s activities.
  • Office of Policy ensures that mission-driven policies of the Department support the objectives and priorities set forth in the Environmental Justice Strategy, and provide a source of integration and analysis of policies.

The program leaders have roles ensuring that environmental justice is appropriately integrated into their specific mission: maritime safety, security, and stewardship; federal assistance authority; emergency management programs; border security; transportation security; immigration services; law enforcement training; science and technology research; and mission support and asset management.

In a speech at Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma, AL, Lisa Jackson, EPA Chief, stated: “The EPA has a plan called Plan EJ 2014. Our goal, quite simply, is to make consideration of environmental justice and fairness part of EPA’s everyday decision-making. EPA has always had a special role with respect to environmental justice, but in this administration, President Obama has really revitalized the larger issue of environmental justice, in which other agencies as well as ours are playing important roles.”

I wonder what DHS and EPA have planned for the businesses and employers across America.  Are they are going to allow environmental groups to claim their inhabitants are “unfairly” burdened by pollutants or adversely affected by new construction so that the businesses can be charged with creating environmental injustices? Will these businesses or the government then be ‘forced’ to subsidize or relocate the ‘victims’ in the name of ‘environmental justice’ or ‘fairness’?  Will the government continue to seize land or prohibit construction under the guise of ‘environmental justice’?  I think the administration is gearing up for another round of private sector destruction and redistribution of wealth – we need to stop it in November or we are in for one hell of a ride!

DHS and ICE Order 450 Million Rounds of .40 Caliber Ammo – Coincidence or Contrived?

 

By Kasey Jachim

 

Yesterday I wrote a post regarding the President’s latest Executive Order basically granting most goverment agencies full oversight of all our resources, including, but not limited to, water, food, transportation, and military in both emergency and non-emergency conditions.  He also signed into law a bill that restricts peaceful assembly in the presence of any government official that has Secret Service protection.  H.R. 347 expands current law to make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that area and has no reason to suspect it’s illegal.  What about a Tea Party Rally in DC?  A friend was at the Nationals game where Obama was in attendance – did she violate the law?   Defense Secretary Leon Panetta blatantly tells Congress they will violate the Constitution and War Powers Act.  And now the news of DHS and ICE contracting for 450,000,000 rounds of .40 caliber bullets…..coincidence or contrived?

If you have been keeping up with the real news and conservative bloggers, you can’t help but notice this President and his administration have consistently ignored the US Constitution.  Recent reports of Google violating our privacy, Obama’s truth squad, and now the need for 450,000,000 rounds of ammo for 300,000,000 citizens makes me very uneasy. We should be very concerned friends.  We can no longer afford to ignore the covert actions of our own government – we need to act.

A recent article in the Washinton Times noted that some states like Virginia have passed their own laws pertaining to NDAA and unlawful detainment of citizens in their own homes. HB 1160, was introduced by Delegate Bob Marshall and is intended to “prevent any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency or the armed forces of the United States in the investigation, prosecution, or detainment of a United States citizen in violation of the Constitution of Virginia.”  The tenth amendment guarantees states’ rights and a state has a right to protect it’s citizens against all enemies, including their own government.

This President is a narcissistic, spoiled product of the radical socialist movement.  The “Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers”, a student of racist professor Derek Bell and fan of Saul Alinsky, should be considered armed and dangerous.  Unfortunately, Eric Holder, our top cop is right there with him and we, my friends, are in for a very bumpy ride.

I fear the enemy is among us and they are planning an “American Autumn” – we must be prepared. We may not have 450,000,000 rounds of ammo but we have hundreds of thousands Patriots with the means to protect and defend our beloved country and Constitution!  Spread the word and act now – liberty and freedom aren’t free – let freedom ring!  God Bless America!

Greetings (again), DHS agents! (DHS monitoring anti-Jihad websites)

By Robert via Jihad Watch

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Official ...

People are sending this to me in large numbers today, and it is even being reported that Reuters broke the story, but actually I had it at Jihad Watch on January 2. Certainly it is abhorrent that DHS would be doing this at all, instead of any real work to secure the nation from actual threats, and it is ominous, given the Department’s politically correct willful ignorance about Islam and jihad, as well as its focus on “right-wing extremists,” which hints at an intention to target Obama’s political opposition, since the “extremists” in question are largely a fantasy of the DHS’s own making and include (in the infamous DHS report on this phenomenon from 2009) conservative groups that have never been involved in any violence or illegal activity whatsoever.

Nonetheless, while much is being made of it, it is hard to be too concerned at this point, since the monitored sites are all over the map ideologically. This may simply be cover for targeting truth-tellers about jihad and Islamic supremacism, as well as those who explain other inconvenient realities that the DHS would prefer to ignore, but about that only time will tell.

Much more immediately ominous is what Pamela Geller reports here: Pro-Freedom Websites Come Under Surveillance In Germany. The German government is targeting anti-jihad sites out of an entirely trumped-up fear that they would promote violence. This is, of course, based on their having been cited by the Norwegian mass murderer Breivik, who has become as popular as Tim McVeigh among Leftists and Islamic supremacists who use him to try to establish a connection between my work and those of other counter-jihadists and the murder of innocent people. This despite the fact that we have never called for or approved of violence, and that Breivik is obviously insane and his “manifesto” actually has no ideological coherence: he even called for alliance with jihadi groups, which is hardly something that counter-jihadists would ever do. Nonetheless, he is being used as a stick to beat pro-freedom activists in Germany. And with Clinton and Obama signing on to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s campaign to criminalize truth-telling about Islam and jihad, it is coming here as well.

But it isn’t here yet, and so I repeat the invitation I made when I first wrote about this: “Welcome, agents! Grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile. Read around in the archives and articles. You might just learn something, if you dare to think outside the politically correct intellectual straitjacket enforced at the DHS these days. Go ahead. Dare to embrace the truth.”

“Homeland Security watches Twitter, social media,” by Mark Hosenball for Reuters, January 11 (thanks to all who sent this in):

(Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security‘s command center routinely monitors dozens of popular websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Hulu, WikiLeaks and news and gossip sites including the Huffington Post and Drudge Report, according to a government document.

A “privacy compliance review” issued by DHS last November says that since at least June 2010, its national operations center has been operating a “Social Networking/Media Capability” which involves regular monitoring of “publicly available online forums, blogs, public websites and message boards.”

The purpose of the monitoring, says the government document, is to “collect information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture.”

The document adds, using more plain language, that such monitoring is designed to help DHS and its numerous agencies, which include the U.S. Secret Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency, to manage government responses to such events as the 2010 earthquake and aftermath in Haiti and security and border control related to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia.

A DHS official familiar with the monitoring program said that it was intended purely to enable command center officials to keep in touch with various Internet-era media so that they were aware of major, developing events to which the Department or its agencies might have to respond.

The document outlining the monitoring program says that all the websites which the command center will be monitoring were “publicly available and… all use of data published via social media sites was solely to provide more accurate situational awareness, a more complete common operating pictures, and more timely information for decision makers…”

The DHS official said that under the program’s rules, the department would not keep permanent copies of the internet traffic it monitors. However, the document outlining the program does say that the operations center “will retain information for no more than five years.”…

News and gossip sites on the monitoring list include popular destinations such as the Drudge Report, Huffington Post and “NY Times Lede Blog”, as well as more focused techie fare such as the Wired blogs “Threat Level” and “Danger Room.” Numerous blogs related to terrorism and security are also on the list.

Some of the sites on the list are potentially controversial. WikiLeaks is listed for monitoring, even though officials in some other government agencies were warned against using their official computers to access WikiLeaks material because much of it is still legally classified under U.S. government rules.

Another blog on the list, Cryptome, also periodically posts leaked documents and was one of the first websites to post information related to the Homeland Security monitoring program.

Also on the list are JihadWatch and Informed Comment, blogs that cover issues related to Islam through sharp political prisms, which have sometimes led critics to accuse the sites of political bias….

Immigration probe: Lawmakers threaten Secretary Napolitano

By Jim Kouri, Law Enforcement Examiner

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitan...

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) today sent another letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano following the Department’s continued delay in providing a list of illegal and criminal immigrants that have been flagged by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) but have not been detained or placed in removal proceedings by the agency.

If DHS fails to produce the requested data in its entirety by December 9, the Committee intends to move forward and consider a resolution to hold DHS in contempt of Congress, Rep. Smith stated. December 9 came and went without a Napolitano response.

On November 18, Chairman Smith warned DHS in a letter that the Committee plans to seek enforcement of the subpoena to the fullest extent allowed by the law.  But in a letter dated December 2, DHS again did not provide documents responsive to the subpoena.  Instead, DHS officials requested another 30 days to compile additional information that has not yet been formally requested by the Committee.  According to DHS officials’ own statements, the subpoenaed information already has been compiled, but they refuse to hand it over to the House Judiciary Committee.

The Immigration Subcommittee authorized the issuance of the subpoena by a vote of 7-4. Rep Smith asked for the subpoenaed information from DHS in August.  But as of yet, the agency has not provided the requested information.

For the past two months, the Department of Homeland Security has dragged their feet and stonewalled my request for information.  The Administration is wrongfully trying to keep crucial information from the American people.  The American people have a right to know what crimes 300,000 immigrants have committed after ICE intentionally chose not to detain them,” said Chairman Smith.

“Are administration officials afraid that the information will show that illegal immigrants intentionally released by ICE have committed crimes that could have been prevented?  Why else would they hide the information?”

“We gave the Obama administration two months’ notice of our request.  Unfortunately, their continued refusal to provide the information has left us no choice other than to subpoena the relevant documents,” Rep. Smith stated.

Smith stated that the Administration is obviously not acting in good faith and is wrongfully trying to keep crucial information from the American people.  They are on the verge of obstructing the legitimate role of Congress.”

In the past, Chairman Smith wrote to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano requesting a list of the criminal immigrants that were brought to the attention of ICE but not detained or processed for removal.  DHS originally stated they had the information and would be able to provide it to the Chairman, but to date DHS has not given Chairman Smith the list as promised. Instead, DHS only provided general information on the Secure Communities program.

Last week, Secretary Napolitano testified before the House Judiciary Committee regarding DHS oversight.  During the hearing, Chairman Smith again requested the information and gave DHS a deadline.  Chairman Smith stated if the information was not provided by DHS, he would have no choice but to issue a subpoena.

The Secure Communities program’s task is to keep U.S. neighborhoods safe by identifying illegal and criminal immigrants in police custody who have been arrested and fingerprinted.  But the Obama administration recently made changes to Secure Communities that could open the door to allow millions of illegal and criminal immigrants to avoid current immigration laws.

Specifically, the Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — John Morton — issued two memos to agency officials on how to exercise blanket “prosecutorial discretion,” such as granting deferred action, deciding whom to stop, question, arrest, or detain, and dismissing a removal proceeding.  While this authority is justifiable when exercised responsibly, the Obama administration has used it recklessly, according to law enforcement sources.

As part of the Committee’s oversight responsibility, four months ago Chairman Smith requested unique identifiers for the criminal immigrants intentionally released by ICE so that the Committee can cross-check the information to see if they have gone on to commit more crimes.  This data will be used to inform Congress on the problem of criminal immigrants and their affect on public safety.
