So Patriots, not only is Greid’s nuclear option’ stacking judges, it’s stacking the deck with lawyers to pass Shamnesty, they are all featured below…


PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.

From J. Christian Adams:

The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.

Despite the sequester, the Department of Homeland Security has just completed a hiring blitz of attorneys to oversee and manage immigration litigation. Almost all of these new civil service attorney hires hail from an activist pro-amnesty and pro-asylum background. Sources within the Department of Homeland Security report that the process for hiring these new career civil service lawyers was unconventional and was conducted by an Obama political appointee within DHS.

The new attorneys have activist backgrounds with a variety of pro-amnesty groups such as the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), the Advancement Project, and open borders groups funded by the Tides Foundation.

The worse part is these hacks cannot be replaced or fired because they are civil servants!

These lawyers were hired through unconventional means by former DHS chief counsel for Citizen and Immigration Services Stephen Legomsky. Sources at DHS report that when Legomsky was hired by Secretary Janet Napalitano’s Department, he was not even an active member of any bar association. After resigning in October 2013, Legomsky is now a professor of law at Washington University. His scholarship is most notable for its hostility toward barriers to entry for foreigners coming to the United States.

* Kristy Blumeyer-Martinez is a new attorney in the DHS Office of the Chief Counsel. Prior to joining OCC, Kristy served as law clerk to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund in San Antonio, Texas, and RAICES in San Antonio, Texas. In law school, she also clerked with the UC Davis Immigration Law Clinic and Sacramento Child Advocates/Children’s Law Center. She also worked at American Gateways, Refugee Services of Texas, and Caritas of Austin.

* Esther Cantor was hired into the refugee and asylum law division as an associate counsel at DHS headquarters in Washington, D.C.. She participated in the Immigration Clinic and volunteered with the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, an open borders organization.

* Nicole Flores is a new DHS lawyer in Chicago. She graduated from Harvard Law School, where she worked at the Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic and served as the co-president of the Harvard Immigration Project, an organization dedicated to ensuring foreigners get to stay in the United States. She was also a legal intern at the leftist open borders organization LatinoJustice-PRLDEF. According to DHS sources, there she worked on project to badger businesses who implemented English-only rules in the work place. Before law school, she was a volunteer activist at a “workers’ rights” organization in Madison, Wisconsin.

* Erin Fricker is a new DHS lawyer formerly employed by Lutheran Social Services of New England, where she was a staff attorney representing detained foreigners attempting to stay in the United States. While in law school, Erin participated in the Boston College Immigration and Asylum Project as an immigration clinic student.

* New DHS lawyer Elizabeth Grossman established her Obama-era ideological bona fides by serving on the executive board for the University of Michigan Law School chapter of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, a leftist law school student group.

* Elizabeth Gunter’s resume includes a stint in the Obama-era DOJ Attorney General’s Honor Program after graduating from Washington University, the same law school where Legomsky, the person doing the hiring at DHS, was a professor while Gunter was a student.

* Cindy Heidelberg comes from the same Holder-era Attorney General’s Honor Program, after a long activist background with open borders groups. Cynthia graduated from Georgetown Law in 2011, earning a J.D. with a certificate in “Refugees and Humanitarian Emergencies.” During law school, she interned at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Immigrant Justice Project, the ACLU National Prison Project, and the AARP Litigation Foundation.

* Celia Hicks is a new lawyer with the Litigation and National Security Coordination Division in Washington, DC. She served as Protection Fellow for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and previously worked for the Legal Action Center of the American Immigration Council, an organization notoriously hostile to Border Patrol agents.

* New DHS lawyer Leila Higgins previously worked as a student attorney in the Immigrant Justice Clinic at her law school. This organization, according to its website, represents “immigrants on cutting-edge asylum claims based on gender and sexual orientation.”

* Lawyer Stephanie Hummel previously worked at the ABA Center for Human Rights in Washington, as well as the pro-amnesty Immigration Law Project, and Legal Services of Eastern Missouri in St. Louis, Missouri. In 2008, she spent time in Cairo studying Arabic. In law school, Hummel won a CALI Award for “Representation of Non-US Citizens in Immigration Court Proceedings.”

* Before joining DHS, attorney Jennifer Lee was an advocate for illegal aliens obtaining in-state tuition at public universities, though she naturally called them “undocumented immigrants.” Lee also worked at the Legal Aid Justice Center, a organization which advised illegals “what to do in the event of a raid.”

* Katelyn Love is now a DHS lawyer in Washington, D.C. She once worked at Lutheran Family Services, where she represented foreigners in their attempts to stay in the United States. Katelyn spent her junior year of college in Morocco studying “formal and colloquial” Arabic.

* New DHS lawyer Maura Ooi previously worked in militantly activist roles with militantly activist open borders organizations: such as the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project. Also, prior to joining DHS, Ooi penned a report for the leftist National Immigration Law Center bashing DHS. Titled “DHS Proposes Fantasy Remedies to Cure Fundamental Flaws in the Secure Communities Program” (emphasis mine), Ooi complained about efforts to fingerprint captured illegal aliens. Without collecting biometric data such as fingerprints, deported illegal aliens may repeatedly return to the United States and their prior illegal entries would remain unknown.

* Reena Parikh also worked at the American University Immigrant Justice Clinic, where she represented foreigners in removal proceedings. She also worked as a legal intern at the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, a group knee-deep in trying to ease immigration laws.

* If you were starting to think that Stephen Legomsky only hired young women to be DHS lawyers, meet new DHS lawyer Steven Plastrik. What Plastrik lacks in femininity, he makes up for with a deep commitment to making sure foreigners get to stay in the United States. He prepared asylum applications at Freedom House and on behalf of other organizations.

* New DHS lawyer Liza Shah just completed a stint with the George Soros-funded Advancement Project working to ensure felons get the right to vote in Virginia (with the tragic and politically suicidal aid of Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell). As a law student, Shah naturally helped in litigation to keep foreigners in the United States.

* Before becoming a DHS lawyer, Connie Yao worked at the Soros Tides Foundation-funded East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, where she assisted individuals with asylum applications. At Cornell Law, she participated in the Advocacy for LGBT Communities Clinic.

* Amisha Sharma is on the board of directors of her local Planned Parenthood when she isn’t busy as a newly hired DHS lawyer. She also worked at the ACLU. She received a dual degree in religious studies and women’s and gender studies from Louisiana State University. At Fordham Law, she was on the board of “Law Students for Reproductive Justice,” worked at the “Center for Reproductive Rights” and volunteered for the “Planned Parenthood of New York City’s Activist Council.”

* Catlin Shay has a history of aiding foreigners seeking to remain in the United States as well as activism against laws prohibiting felons from voting. She wrote “Free But No Liberty: How Florida Contravenes the Voting Rights Act by Preventing Persons Previously Convicted of Felonies from Voting,” and advocated a position wholly rejected by federal courts.

* Cara Shewchuk once worked at the pro-amnesty National Immigration Law Center and the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, providing free legal help to illegal aliens.

* Melanie Siders worked for the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network prior to her time as a DHS lawyer.

* Lindsay Smith is a graduate of Smith College and Michigan Law, where she was “a Jenny Runkles scholar” for her commitment to public interest law and “diversity.” She also worked at the open borders, pro-amnesty group Americans for Immigrant Justice.

* Prior to joining DHS, Shahna Esber was an “Immigration Law Fellow” at the Legal Aid Society of San Diego, where she helped foreigners stay in the United States. She also worked with the Immigration Center for Women and Children, an organization “proud to assist immigrant youth applying for Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.”

* DHS lawyer Bria DeSalvo graduated from Georgetown University Law Center “with a certificate in Refugees and Humanitarian Emergencies. ” In law school, DeSalvo volunteered for the CAIR coalition.

* DHS lawyer Jessika Croizat served as a union organizer for AFSCME before deciding to attend law school.

* Before his job as an attorney at DHS, Michael Celone was a Hill staffer for Democrats. He worked with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) helping prepare research to attack the Bush Justice Department regarding the firing of political appointees who were serving as United States attorneys. He also worked for Democrat Rep. Jim Langevin from Rhode Island. He also authored an article revealingly titled “Undocumented and Unprotected: Solutions for Protecting the Health of America’s Undocumented Mexican Migrant Workers.”

If you are an attorney with a background in enforcing immigration law as opposed to representing foreigners attempting to stay in the United States, don’t expect to be hired by DHS during the Obama administration. And based on this recent batch of hires, if you are a male with a background in immigration enforcement, forget about it.

There is NO doubt the accelerated plans of Socialist USSA. They are planting Voter takeover and Shamnesty and beyond. Share this investigative prrof from J. Christian please? ~ JP

Ju Hong, who stood up and slammed Obama, as obama lectured him during a California immigration event Monday, saying in an unscripted moment that he could not unilaterally halt deportations of illegal immigrants and that true reform would require more than “just shouting.”

Hong came to the United States from NK with his mother and older sister when he was 11.

He tweeted Mr. President, I did not heckle you. I was speaking the truth to you.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a tweet for everything :) Wonder if Mr. presiden will have my twitter acct. suspended. Or um, mayhaps snoop on this website. Sure have many times, so…

@JuHong89 @BarackObama Shame on you Mr. president. You were the champion of illegal immigrants. Did you lie about that also?

“The easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws,” Obama told the heckler at a speech in San Francisco’s Chinatown. “It won’t be as easy as just shouting.”

Later Monday afternoon, Obama complained at a second event that “a lot of people have been saying this lately on every problem — which is — ‘just sign an executive order, and we can pretty much do anything and basically nullify Congress.’”

But where does this idea come from? From Obama himself.

Obama used the same rhetoric to advise patience to advocates for the Dream Act, a bill creating a path to citizenship for children of illegal immigrants.

“It will be difficult, and it will take time. I know some of you wish that I could bypass Congress and change the law myself, but that’s not how democracy works. Democracy is hard, but it’s right,” Obama said during a commencement speech at Miami-Dade College in April 2011.

By July 2011, Obama teased during a speech to La Raza that he wanted nothing more than to work without Congress:

“Believe me — believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform,” Obama said as the crowd laughed and applauded. “But that’s not how — that’s not how our system works.”

A year later, in spite of his vow to adhere to the Constitution, Obama announced in June 2012 that he would act without Congress to stop deportations for the so-called “Dreamers.”

“My administration has been doing what we can without the help of Congress for more than three years now,” he said to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference last year, “Last week we took another step. On Friday, we announced that we’re lifting the shadow of deportation from deserving young people who are brought to this country as children.”

* So when immigration reform activists hear Obama’s rhetoric about working within the structure of the Constitution, it’s easy for them to think that Obama is just paying lip service to the idea.

* For protesters like Ju Hong, it’s easy to believe that Obama takes matters into his own hands when it comes to immigration.

If they got him to do it before a tough re-election campaign, why wouldn’t he do it again in his second term?


Interesting discovery in my travels. Hong is no stranger to being an activist.

Police arrested 21-year-old Hong and six other undocumented student activists for blocking a major street at a July 12 San Bernardino immigration rally. They were released 12 hours later, but might now be at risk for deportation. An ICE agent told the activists they might be ordered to an immigration court hearing in a few weeks, Hong said.

* Undocumented and unafraid.

Just heard on FNC & Char sent it to me…

They are being put up in hotels in several states at OUR expense! That is how much of an overflow there is!


A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States. Immigrants are being taught to use “key words and phrases” to be allowed to enter and stay in the country. Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: “credible fear” of the drug cartels. So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.

“They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country,” said a person who did not want to be identified on camera. “We are being overwhelmed.”

Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, “This will swamp the system.”

BTW Border Patrol has picked up over 2 million in 5 years…

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – State Sen. Vivian Davis Figures has strongly rejected a request by the Alabama Republican Party that she apologize for saying that racism has played a role in the rise and undisputed dominance of the Republican Party across Alabama’s political landscape.

Her attributing Republican political dominance in the state to racism drew a sharp response from state Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead, who called for an apology and said the party did not vote for its elected officials based on race. Figures, in turn, refused to apologize and stood by her remarks.

“I will apologize for nothing I said on Tuesday evening,” Figures said this afternoon in a press release. “The statements at issue were made in response to a question posed by an audience member, and my response reflected my personal opinion regarding the matter of many Republican candidates in local and state races, campaigning as if they were running against President Obama.

Full article

It is said because this is the ‘Old South’ we here are automatically racist. I am a Chicago transplant as many of you know. I have observed firsthand how folks here deal with race. The only holdouts I see are the very old. That’s the way they were raised. True some of it has carried over to generations 45 and older. But overall, it JUST does not hold water anymore.

I see black folks everywhere in our small town. Mixed babies are common. They are not ostracized. They are not hung up in trees.

It is my opinion Vivian Figures is also of that old generation, where in fact blacks were held to a different criteria and admittedly, and unfairly treated. But here, just like the rest of our country, we would welcome a black leader who actually would actually abide by the Constitution. As opposed to the junk we receive now in D.C.

We do not need black leaders fueling the racist flame like Ms. Figures.

Ken Hare, of WSFA radio, covered this in depth a few days ago:

State Sen. Vivian Figures stirred up a hornet’s nest when she said that racism was a factor in Republicans gaining political dominance in Alabama since President Obama took office. But, of course, any public discussion of race and politics in Alabama — or almost anywhere, for that matter — is certain to stir strong feelings.

Race and politics cannot be separated in this state. It’s been that way for a long, long time, and sadly, it’s likely to continue to be that way for a long time to come.

But please note that I use the word “race,” and not the word “racism.” It is indisputable that race is a huge factor in the politics of Alabama and elsewhere. But how large a role racism plays in politics is to a great degree something that depends upon the eye of the beholder.

Make sure you read his editorial as it covers the Sen. Figures controversy best.

We are also accused of prejudice when it comes to our struggle to block amnesty. Many of you know I had contact with my now Senator Sessions way back in 2000. He was one of very few advocates fighting this fight against GW Bush and McCain who promoted amnesty in a different guise. He believes that our state comes first when it comes to jobs. Not willing to give them away to illegals.

The liberal media and the Obama administration want us to focus on the Trayvon Martin murder trial and anything other than what’s happening in Washington. But, the immigration train is chugging along in DC.

Bill Armistead’s Corner (Al. GOP Chairman)

voting rts AL

From Governor Robert Bentley speaking on the Voting Rights Act ruling:

“Alabama has made tremendous progress over the past 50 years, and this decision by the U.S. Supreme Court recognizes that progress. We will not tolerate discrimination in Alabama.

“The ruling also notes that the Tenth Amendment ‘reserves to the States all powers not specifically granted to the Federal Government, including “the power to regulate elections.”‘ And the ruling continues to say, ‘There is also a “fundamental principle of equal sovereignty” among the States, which is highly pertinent in assessing disparate treatment of States.’ Also, the ruling says, ‘The Voting Rights Act sharply departs from these basic principles. It requires States to beseech the Federal Government for permission to implement laws that they would otherwise have the right to enact and execute on their own.’

Something Ms.Figures will not note:

“Today’s ruling is historic. It reflects how conditions have improved since 1965. And as Chief Justice Roberts also said, this ruling returns us to the principle that all states enjoy equal sovereignty.”

An article Friday by Pat Buchanan sums it up…

If interracial crime is the ugliest manifestation of racism, what does this tell us about where racism really resides — in America?

FBI stats for 2007 represent an average year since the Tawana Brawley rape-hoax of 1987, over one-third of a million white women have been sexually assaulted by black males since 1987 — with no visible protest from the civil rights leadership.

Today, 73 percent of all black kids are born out of wedlock. Growing up, these kids drop out, use drugs, are unemployed, commit crimes and are incarcerated at many times the rate of Asians and whites — or Hispanics, who are taking the jobs that used to go to young black Americans.

Ms. Figures? You would do well to take this into consideration when opening your big mouth. Then you can rad this entire article, then offer that deserved apology to us all in Alabama!
