A "SECURE THE BORDERS FIRST" INITIATIVE BY
INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAWS
Proposed for 2016. Initiative Summary, what the laws can do to stop crime:
COUNTIES to have officers in each jail and booking facility to verify each lawful status. Requests to federal government for more trained officers to combat transnational gangs and drug cartels. Additional 287g federal training of other state and local officers to act as federal officers to investigate illegal alien criminals and transfer criminals released from jail into federal custody.
REQUIRES fingerprints of all booked into jail to be verified with ICE pursuant to the Secure Communities program. Supported by Governor Brown, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern, and many others in law enforcement. This program is violated in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Francisco counties. The Legislature has proposed bills to seriously violate Secure Communities.
DMV cannot accept driver's licenses or identification cards from other states that do not verify lawful status. All SSN's verified with the Social Security Administration. Immigration documents verified with the issuing federal agency. The driver's license and identification issued only to legal U.S. residents.
With your support to Taxpayer Revolution we can deter illegal alien criminals comprising about 15% of California's prison population at a cost of almost $1 Billion annually. There will be tens of millions in savings from removing illegal aliens from jails to federal custody as evidenced in other states.
Comments on the Legislature eliminating all funds to combat transnational gangs, which the laws can help address:
Attorney General Kamala Harris stated: "Transnational gangs are the top emerging public safety threat to the people of California." The budget cuts will "...handcuff the state Department of Justice's ability to fight gang violence and disrupt the flow of drugs, guns and human beings across our border." "The cuts will likely eliminate 55 state lead task forces that coordinate the response to our growing gang problem." "We cannot allow the I-5 corridor to serve as a conduit for transnational gangs trafficking drugs, guns and human beings into California communities." "Organized crimes represent a serious public safety threat in California and their crimes - from drug dealing to gang violence to premeditated murder - reverberate throughout the state."
On the Attorney General's website: "Violent gangs don't respect borders anymore than they respect the law."
Gregory D. Totten, president of the California District Attorneys Association: "If this cut is allowed to stand, numerous entities within DOJ will be devastated."
Irvine Police Chief and President of the California Police Chiefs Association David Maggard stated: "The Mexican drug cartels are steadily driving their operations into California.” "..the Sinaloa cartel is becoming firmly entrenched in California." "FBI sources with whom we have spoken believe that a majority of the 200 reported abductions in California are attributable to Mexican drug cartels."
Imperial County District Attorney Gilbert Otero stated "...such a move would have a major negative impact on public safety in my county, in the state and across the nation."
California Narcotic Officers Association President James Hodges stated: "It is fact that the Mexican drug cartels have dramatically increased their profiles in California."
Narcotics Task Enforcer Jeff Catchings of South Lake El Dorado Narcotics Enforcment Team stated: "If you take away the threat of being caught in this community, it is going to be disastrous...I cannot say that enough."
Kenneth Pogue, Legislative Director, California Department of Justice stated: "They have more guns than we have, they more gang members than we have officers."
Orange Juice Blog of November 30, 2011 entitled its article: "Unprecedented California Department of Justice Cuts Impact Public Safety and Endanger Californians."
Orange Juice Blog of November 9, 2011: "Department of Justice ends two-thirds of California's 52 Drug and Gang Fighting Task Forces Next Year."
The Legislature's budget cut affects hundreds of sworn officers and other employees according to the AG's Legislative Division. These officers seized 7 million dollars in asset seizures last year which will be reduced significantly now, and matching federal funds will also be lost.
The Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, the first in the nation founded 1927, is due to close. This department targets major drug dealers, violent career criminals, clandestine drug manufacturers and violators of prescription drug laws. Some law enforcement agents who are trained experts in investigating criminal gangs and organized crime have been reassigned to focus on recycling fraud and environmental issues.
The Governor and Legislature also ended the 30 year old marijuana eradication program that has confiscated up to 72% of the nation's marijuana over the last seven years, worth $70 billion.
The transnational gangs are taking over the violent crime ridden barrio gangs, escalating drug smuggling, sex trafficking, kidnappings and homicides, much of it unreported by the media. With the infiltration of Mexican and Central American drug cartels, California is making 80% of the nation’s methamphetamine, more than the other 49 states combined. This state is headed in the wrong direction and it will effect the whole nation. This is why we need this initiative.
