LA: bad dudes from 12 countries arrested for deportation

 

LA: bad dudes from 12 countries arrested by ICE

Illegal immigration: Over 700 arrested  by ICE

Illegal immigration:  The travel plans of over 700 were disrupted  this last week by ICE.

In LA, bad dudes — largely felons —  from 12 countries  were arrested by federal government on immigration violations.

These are bad men, largely felons:   Of the 160 arrested in Los Angeles, CA about 150 had criminal histories, while five more had either been previously deported or had “final orders of removal”. Many of those arrested had prior felony convictions for “serious or violent offenses” including child sex crimes and assault.

The arrestees in the LA area  – which were 95 percent male – included nationals from a dozen countries, according to ICE.

Across the USA over 700 arrests were made:

Interesting development:  Mexico urges illegals to fight deportation via the court system.

In Mexico, influential Mexicans want illegals to go overwhelm the USA legal system via the court system.

At last the truth: Do USA Hispanic voters support border control

  border-patrol   Do Hispanics support Trump’s immigration policies on immigration?  Read below and you decide.  
A majority of Hispanic voters said they “support Donald Trump’s immigration policies,” undercutting the narrative that enforcing immigration law will drive away Latinos, one exit poll found.
The poll, conducted from Nov. 9 to Nov. 10 by Zogby Analytics for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), found 58.5 percent of Hispanic voters favored President-Elect Donald Trump’s immigration policies, compared to 32.9 percent for failed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Of all voters, 57.4 percent  Latinos  said they support Trump’s immigration policies, with 38.4 percent backing Clinton’s.

Firenze Sage:  This answers the question of whether or not Latin workers want to compete with illegals who undercut wages for citizens.

Say it isn’t so: Activist critical of Trump rapes Hispanic illegal

Tony

Yapias rapes Hispanic illegal

But it is so — An Hispanic activist critical of Trump rapes an undocumented Hispanic female and then deletes text messages from her cell  phone.  She pressed charges the next day and the man, activist Yapias formerly of Peru/ Mexico  was arrested.

You might remember a Hispanic political activist named Tony Yapias, who was extremely critical of Donald Trump’s assertion that some illegal Mexican aliens were rapists.Tony Yapias is the director of ‘Proyecto Latino de Utah’.  Mr. Yapias also coordinated numerous protest events against Donald Trump including a rather violent display in Salt Lake City, Utah.

tony-yapiasThis week Tony Yapias has been arrested for rape.   However, not only was Yapias arrested for rape – his victim was, …wait for it…, yep, an illegal alien.

Yes, it appears Mexican rapist Tony Yapias felt additionally empowered by the fact his victim was less likely to be able to contact law enforcement.

However, as Fox13 in Salt Lake Cityreports:

[…]  Despite the woman’s fears concerning immigration issues, court documents state, she reported the assault the day after it happened. She was also examined by a forensic nurse who found she had multiple physical injuries consistent with her explanation of what happened(link)

Mr. Yapias threatened, raped and blackmailed his victim specifically because of her undocumented illegal immigration status
