Rule of law does not mean a lot to this miscreant it seems. Pacific Pundit fills us in
I guess this leftist windbag has never grasped just what job ICE has. Yes, DEPORTING illegals, not Americans Chris Hayes
Wait, deporting Americans? Illegal aliens are being deported. I haven’t heard of any actual American citizens being deported. Where do Americans get deported to? San Francisco? Ruben Gallego represents Phoenix.
A Democratic congressman warned Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and others involved in deporting illegal immigrants that they will pay a price for their current actions when President Donald Trump is no longer in office, Fox News reported.
Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) made the statement on Twitter in response to a story from The Washington Post about the denial of passports to Hispanic people who are suspected of having fraudulent birth certificates.
Ah, fake birth certificates you say? Daily Caller has more context, ever heard of context Washington Compost?
The State Department is pushing back on a Washington Post article claiming that the number of American citizens living near the southern border area being denied renewal passports is rising under Trump.
Midwives and physicians located near the border in Mexico have given families fraudulent birth certificates to prove American citizenship for decades in exchange for money. WaPo’s article focused on the people in America who applied for renewed passports but were denied because the government believed their birth certificates were from one of these midwives.
The Post’s piece claimed that “The Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies, and it is undertaking a widespread crackdown.”
However, that is not true according to the State Department. In fact, the number of domestic passport denials at the southern border are at a six-year low and the number of midwife cases has gone down under the current administration.
Further, the 2015 calendar year had more renewal denials at the border than any year in that timeframe with approximately 1,500. That year also had the highest percentage of denials at 35.9% in respect to the number of birth certificates that were deemed “potentially fraudulent” over the same time period.
Conversely, less than 750 people had passports not renewed this year so far and that is 25.8% of the total in question. Should this percentage stay the same through the end of the year, it’d be the lowest in the aforementioned timeframe.
