Non-Citizens Can Now Become Cops In This State…

Non-Citizens Can Now Become Cops In This State...

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Over the objections of the state’s largest police union, which labeled it a “potential crisis of confidence in law enforcement,” Illinois Governor Jay Robert Pritzker signed a bill allowing non-citizens to work as police officers into law.

On July 28, Mr. Pritzker signed HB3751 into law, making it possible for non-citizens who are lawfully able to work in the United States to apply to become police officers in Illinois with immediate effect.

“Foreign nationals who are legally permitted by federal law to work in the United States or any foreign national who “is an individual against whom immigration action has been deferred by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process” but who is permitted to possess a firearm can now apply to become a police officer in Illinois,” according to the text of the bill.

Only U.S. citizens can work as police officers and deputy sheriffs under federal law. However, due to a lack of staff, legislation and legislative initiatives in several states have amended this.

Running Officers on Minimal Staff

Violent and criminalized Chicago is one of the Illinois cities with the greatest need for new hires.

According to interim Chicago police superintendent Fred Waller, “We’re dealing with a lot of people who are just emboldened and they’re shooting people recklessly in the daytime also.”

According to WGN9, in June, Mr. Waller stated, “I’m never going to say we can’t use more staff, more resources. We are truly exhausting our police. We frequently postpone days off.”

Along with many other police departments nationwide, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) is losing officers more quickly than it can hire competent candidates.

According to data, the CPD lost around 3,300 officers and employees between 2019 and 2022, while only 1,600 people were hired to replace open positions.

This resulted from a wave of resignations by officers disheartened by the anti-police protests and calls to “defund the police” in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Potential Confidence Crisis In Law Enforcement

Despite declaring that it would accept new recruits “with open arms,” the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police, representing around 33,000 current duty and retired police officers in the state, would only do so when the applicants become citizens of the United States.

“Police officers’ primary responsibility is to uphold the law and guarantee that everyone under their jurisdiction abides by all relevant laws.

When the bill cleared the state senate and was awaiting Mr. Pritzker’s signature in early July, the group released a statement asking, “What message does this legislation convey when it empowers persons who do not have legal status to become the enforcers of our laws?”

“At a time when our police need all the public support they can muster, this may be a crisis of faith in law enforcement. Be assured that once their citizenship status is established, we will welcome these potential police recruits with open arms and look forward to the distinctive viewpoint they may provide to our profession,” the statement continued.

The measure was also opposed by certain state legislators. Republican state senator Chapin Rose stated during a discussion of the proposal that enabling non-citizens to detain people of the United States would constitute a “fundamental breach” of democracy.

In May, Mr. Rose declared, “It’s just a fundamentally poor notion. “It doesn’t matter that this person is from Australia; they shouldn’t be able to detain a citizen of the United States on American soil.”

Police Who Are Not Citizens In Other States

California passed a law earlier this year allowing non-citizens with legitimate work permits to work as police officers.

The San Diego Police Officers Association raised grave reservations about the proposal, much like its Illinois equivalent.

In July 2020, the San Diego Police Department faced a significant loss of over 500 officers, which is alarming.

Sergeant Jared Wilson, the President of the San Diego Police Officers Association, spoke on behalf of the organization and emphasized the need to allow more people to serve as police officers while maintaining the established standards and requirements.

The bill’s author, California State Senator Nancy Skinner, said it did little more than connect police officers with other professions, such as the military.

Senator Skinner stated, “As long as they have full legal license, full federal legal work authorization, practically every other profession—lawyers, doctors, even firefighters—can participate in California’s standards.”

CBS8 reported that Ms. Skinner stated in January that the restriction was only placed on sworn officers.

“Ironically, in the military, you could be an officer in the military and you could not be a peace officer in California. So that’s why we felt it was totally right to fix the rule,” she added.

The Law Enforcement Immigration Task Force found that several states have legislation similar to the one Illinois recently passed, allowing non-citizens to apply for police positions as long as they have valid work permission.

This covers, among other places, Maine, Louisiana, and California.

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
