5 Years After 9/11: The Utter Disgrace Of Federal Immigration Law Enforcement

Here we are five years after
September 11, 2001—and the

federal government
is still as uninterested

as ever
in receiving reports of illegal aliens and
criminal alien residents.

There`s

virtually no interest in
the executive agencies for
getting deportation proceedings rolling against the
millions of

immigration scofflaws
in the country. And there`s
even less interest in Congress in setting up a
coherent system to (my hobbyhorse)

SUMMARILY REMOVE
ILLEGAL ALIENS AND CRIMINAL ALIEN
RESIDENTS…which just so happens to be perfectly
allowable by

100 years of U.S. Supreme Court precedent
.

Here`s the proof of the continuing

immigration law enforcement
disgrace—an e-mail from
a VDARE.com reader dated September 7:

“I have
made reports 3 months ago of the practice of hiring
illegal aliens where I work (there are 45 currently
there now) to the following agencies: DHS, LOCAL BORDER
PATROL OFFICE, INCLUDING 3 MEETINGS WITH 2 BORDER PATROL
AGENTS IN PERSON, DEPT. OF LABOR, DEPT OF JUSTICE,
SOCIAL SECURITY, IRS, STATE FRANCHISE TAX BOARD, OSHA .
. . and 3 months later nothing has happened!

“Please
tell me what I can do.”

Well, it looks like you`ve done all you can.  Welcome to
the futility of this situation . . . where the federal
government follows its own agenda in direct conflict
with the citizens.  The end-game here is the
three-country merger

of

North America.

The more the federal propaganda for public consumption
changes, the more things remain

rigged behind the scenes.

Since 9/11, among

other things
, I`ve
embarked on a one-man crusade to find the most accurate
information possible for

reporting aliens

to the federal
government. Here`s the latest word on what to do:


  • HOW TO REPORT AN
    ILLEGAL ALIEN OR CRIMINAL ALIEN RESIDENT—If you are
    not in a border area with a U.S. Border Patrol
    station nearby, contact the Immigration and Customs
    Enforcement

    (ICE)
    division of the

    Department of Homeland Security
    by
    calling (866) DHS-2ICE to "report suspicious
    activity" (866) 347-2423.


  • You can also make
    a report with the DHS/ICE Investigations division in
    a city near you through the telephone numbers listed
    on the

    ICE web site
    —for Special Agent-in-Charge (SAC)
    Offices, and their subordinate field offices called
    Resident Agent-in-Charge (RAC) and Resident Agent
    Offices (RAOs). You can even write them a letter if
    you want to make a written record.

It`s as if doing something to round
up and summarily remove
illegal aliens,

previously-deported criminals
, and the

expired visa
scofflaw crowd who all have

no business
being in this country is still a
strangely unthinkable concept…even for a country
allegedly

“at war”.

Since 9/11/01, I`ve been

writing
about the largely unknown U.S. Immigration
Court system of hearings and appeals within the
Department of Justice, which is a federal agency called
the Executive Office for Immigration Review (
EOIR)
that conducts Immigration Court hearings. Ever heard of
it?

I`ve been calling for the
litigation-based EOIR to be

abolished
and replaced with a system of summary
removal so illegal aliens and criminal alien residents
will actually leave the country.

An extraordinary concept,
apparently.

Journalist

Michelle Malkin
picked up my thesis and published it
in her best-selling book,

Invasion
(pages 215-16), and also in a September
2002 "backgrounder" by the Center for Immigration
Studies report called "The
Deportation Abyss: It Ain`t Over `Til the Alien Wins
"—[
PDF].

But the silence since than has been
deafening. And the EOIR system of Immigration Court
hearings, administrative appeals, and more Federal
Circuit Court appeals remains as rigged and
alien-friendly as ever.

The Immigration and Nationality Act
remains as much of a loophole-filled mess shot full of
holes as ever.

The federal immigration bureaucracy
still lumbers along is all of its litigation-soaked
sloth.

As my VDARE.COM colleague Ed
Rubenstein has shown, workplace enforcement has

collapsed
—even though the costs of immigration law
enforcements are

a fraction
of the Iraq War.

More government employees
collecting

Department of Homeland Security
paychecks are
managed by even more superfluous Washington D.C.-based
managers.

Five years after 9/11 and the
federal immigration bureaucracy is as much of a disgrace
as its

most-hated predecessor
, the abolished Immigration
and Naturalization Service.

The proof is the

20-million-plus
illegal aliens in the United States
who should be immediately

reported and deported
. . . and the fact that the Bush
Administration hasn`t done a damn thing about it since
9/11.
