Why pro-illegal politicians should register as foreign agents.
Henry Sanchez-Milian, 18, is a Guatemalan national who entered the United States illegally but was allowed to remain in the county. Jose O. Montano, 17, is a Salvadoran national who likely entered the United States illegally and was not deported. Both made their way to Montgomery County, Maryland, some 20 miles from the White House, where many members of Congress and federal officials live. There Rockville High School performed no background check, did not ask about immigration status, and enrolled the pair as freshmen in classes with fourteen-year-olds.
Sanchez and Montano – the names are quite possibly fake – are charged with raping a 14-year-old in a school bathroom at 9 in the morning while school was in session. As court records showed, the pair raped the girl multiple times, vaginally, orally and sodomized her, as they spoke to each other in Spanish. A forensic expert recovered blood and male fluids at the scene.
That, as they say, is a news story but not a word appeared in the Sacramento Bee, the paper of record in California’s capital, and that comes as no surprise. The default position of the old-line establishment media is that illegal immigrants, always described as “undocumented,” are an unalloyed blessing for the United States, which is of course a “nation of immigrants.”
To report about two illegals charged with raping a 14-year-old high-school student would cast doubt on that notion. It would also suggest that President Donald Trump might have been correct about the need to deport violent criminals illegals and not let them return. So the establishment media suppresses the news and ignores the back story.
Minor children from Central America are fleeing gang violence in their home countries and coming to America for safety. That’s the default position of the left but as it emerged in Border Patrol interviews the main reason for flight is to take advantage of a U.S. policy granting a free pass to unaccompanied children known as UACs.
That’s why incredibly irresponsible parents broke up their families and sent their own children away, with no opposition from the various Central American governments, nor from Mexico, which allowed their transport to the border. Many surrendered to the U.S. Border Patrol immediately and remained in the country pending a hearing with immigration judges. Sanchez and Montano are likely among the ranks of these “dreamers,” another default description.
The biggest backer of this policy was the 44th president. In effect, he made the USA a sanctuary nation, importing an electorate and supplying welfare agencies with new clients. An estimated 60,000 children entered the United States this way in 2014 and 130,000 in 2014, costing American taxpayers $2 billion.
If any person in a Central American country suffers from gang violence, it does not follow that they should move to the United States. In reality, Central American countries, and Mexico in particular, encourage the mass movement of their citizens to the United States for the jobs and benefits the USA offers.
Those benefits are supposed to be reserved for those who come to the country legally, in the manner of past immigrants. The politically correct make no distinction between legals and illegals, and among illegals they make little if any distinction between criminals and non-criminals.
That’s why San Francisco released illegal immigrant felon Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a decision backed by California governor Jerry Brown and attorney general Kamala Harris, now a U.S. Senator. Lopez-Sanchez proceeded to gun down Kate Steinle but that prompted no challenge to policies that give sanctuary to violent felons after multiple deportations. In 2014, Brown approved $3 million in public funds to provide legal aid for the unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally.
Candidate Donald Trump promised to crack down on illegal immigration, giving priority to the deportation of violent criminal illegals. As the Los Angeles Times noted, last December, before Trump took office, the city “unveiled a $10-million fund to provide legal assistance for residents facing deportation.” The fund was “one of the first times local taxpayer money has been allocated to provide legal services for those without documentation.”
Those would be foreign nationals, whose own governments encourage and abet their flight to the United States, and who in some cases oppose the return of their own citizens. Those who allocate taxpayer money to aid illegals are putting the interests of those governments above the established U.S. law they swear to uphold. In effect, they are acting on behalf of those governments who do not want the United States to deport their citizens.
The Foreign Agents Registration Act includes those who act “in the interests” of a foreign government. For example, Gen. Michael Flynn, as the New York Times observed, “worked as a foreign agent last year representing the interests of the Turkish government in a dispute with the United States.”
The FARA also includes those who act as a “public relations counsel” for a foreign principal. The Act also regards a foreign agent as one who “solicits, collects, disburses, or dispenses contributions, loans, money, or other things of value for or in the interest of such foreign principal.”
Politicians who want to promote the cause of illegals and spend public funds on their legal bills should have to register with the Justice Department as agents of a foreign government, primarily Mexico. That will help curtain what amounts to an occupation.
According to the Department of Homeland Security there are more than 11 million illegals in the United States, equivalent to the entire population of Belgium. Many illegals work hard at unpleasant jobs, stay out of trouble, and pursue their educational dreams. Other illegals kill women on a San Francisco pier, murder police officers such as Danny Oliver, and gun down African American teenagers such as Jamir Miller.
Meanwhile, dreamers Henry Sanchez-Milian and Jose O. Montano are charged with raping a fourteen-year-old girl in a bathroom at Rockville High School in Maryland. Neither should have been allowed in the country in the first place. That’s what the president says about illegals, and that’s why establishment newspapers in the sanctuary state of California suppress the story.
