How (and Why?) was Veep Joe Biden Mucking Around in Central America?

Jim Simpson writing at American Thinker has pieced together a convincing account of Joe Biden’s nefarious involvement in the affairs of the Guatemalan government and his role in advancing the Communists’ agenda there.

(Remember when we assumed Obama picked Joe so Joe could act as a figurehead to attend boring funerals and such!)

The story is long and convoluted, but puts out a whole NEW set of allegations against good ol’ Joe that includes another possible pay-to-play scheme. 

For readers here you don’t need convincing that Joe Biden will damage US security if elected, but if he is elected this week (or in weeks to come!) consider this news as another avenue for patriots to pursue as the resistance to his presidency grows.

For naïve people who think America will calm down with Biden/Harris in the White House nothing can be further from the truth.

Joe Biden’s Hand in Corruption, Subversion and Crime in Guatemala

In 2014 and 2015, then-Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Guatemala three times to pressure the government to maintain a United Nations body known as the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG).

CICIG was established in Guatemala in 2006 under the pretext of prosecuting “crimes committed by members of illegal security forces and clandestine security structures,” during Guatemala’s long civil war. Instead, CICIG — an international body unaccountable to Guatemalan law, worked with Guatemala’s Justice Ministry to arrest and jail the left’s opponents. Many remain illegally detained to this day without trial. Two prominent doctors and a Guatemalan congressman died in jail. All suffered ill health, did not receive proper treatment and were detained much longer than legally allowed. None got a trial. All were absolved following their deaths.

Biden met with then-Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina, who did not want to renew CICIG’s charter. The Obama administration had promised a $1 billion aid package to Northern Triangle countries (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador), but Biden made the aid and upcoming trade agreements contingent upon renewing CICIG’s contract. First cajoling then threatening, Biden finally announced, “The CICIG is staying, period.” Biden used this same tactic in Ukraine, where he bragged about threatening to withhold loan guarantees until the Ukrainian government fired the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden. Biden also sought Pérez’s help in extending CICIG’s rule to El Salvador and Honduras.

Pérez reluctantly agreed to renew CICIG’s charter. He was then pressured to resign under accusations of corruption and stripped by the Guatemalan Congress of legal immunity. The day after he resigned he was arrested and thrown in jail. He has remained there ever since, without trial. In a Daily Caller interview from jail, Pérez called these efforts, “a coup without bullets.”

Pérez said that, “CICIG amounts to a new form of U.S. interference in Guatemala’s affairs and that his country has surrendered its sovereignty over its justice system by allowing the unit to operate.”

CICIG’s litany of abuses includes arbitrary arrest, detention and interrogation without charges or trial, fabricated evidence, illegal break-ins and denial of due process, pretrial detention for years longer than allowed by Guatemalan law and many other abuses. Some of the charges it has brought are valid, given endemic corruption in Guatemala. But CICIG’s goal was not to stem corruption, rather to use it as a pretext to dispatch the left’s enemies and install vastly more corrupt individuals who will advance the Communist cause in Guatemala.

Read it all and save it for more ammunition for the resistance (our resistance).

If you want to have a look at Biden’s plan for the Northern Triangle Countries including Guatemala if he wins the White House, see it here.  He brags that he was Obama’s point person when the ‘kids’ were crashing our borders six years ago.  You know when the cages were built!  Hmmm!

As the point-person for the Obama-Biden Administration to address the surge of unaccompanied minors from the Northern Triangle in 2014…..

In Maryland Sanctuary County Unaccompanied Minors Arrested on Murder Charges

So much for the sob stories about the ‘unaccompanied minors’ (sometimes referred to as unaccompanied alien children) who enter the US without Mommy or Daddy and end up in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.  Here at least four of this MS-13 gang once held that status.

If you are an MS-13 gang member, Montgomery County, Maryland is your home away from home!

From the Washington Post:

Sixth suspect arrested in Montgomery homicide involving MS-13, police say

Police arrested and charged a sixth suspect in a May 26 homicide that Montgomery County police said involved members of the MS-13 gang.

Think about it! Four of these little darlings were once ‘unaccompanied minors’ in the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. From left: Carlos Andres Orellana, Daniel E. Huezo Landaverde, Oscar Effrain Zavala-Urrea, Romeo Almengor Oxlaj-Lopez and Victor Alfonso Cruz-Orellana.

 

Jose Luis Lainez-Martinez, 26, is being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge. No attorney was listed for him in court records.

According to court documents, the homicide occurred when Francisco Medrano-Campos, a painter, left his Wheaton apartment and was ambushed by MS-13 gang members who had watched his movements and knew what time he left for work. He was shot multiple times at 7:06 a.m. and died on the scene, police said.

Weeks before the incident, Medrano-Campos had gotten into an argument with one of the suspects who had broken into his apartment and stolen $3,000 in cash and two video-game systems, court documents allege. Medrano-Campos reportedly fought back, demanding the suspect return what he stole and beating him with a lead pipe, the documents state.

“By all accounts, he was a hard-working guy who was headed to work that morning,” said Capt. Edward Pallas, director of the major crimes division at the Montgomery County Police Department, of Medrano-Campos.

Monday’s arrest of Lainez-Martinez is the latest related to the killing. On June 10, police arrested and charged five suspects — ages 19 to 21 — with one count each of first-degree murder. All were accused of playing different roles in the slaying, from lookouts to shooters, according to court documents. The suspects, Carlos Andres Orellana, 21, Daniel E. Huezo Landaverde, 19, Oscar Effrain Zavala-Urrea, 19, Romeo Almengor Oxlaj-Lopez, 20, and Victor Alfonso Cruz-Orellana, 21, are all being held without bond.

Four of the suspects — Orellana, Zavala-Urrea, Oxlaj-Lopez and Cruz-Orellana — entered the country illegally from Central America as unaccompanied minors and were transferred to the custody of the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman previously told The Washington Post. ICE asked Montgomery jail officials to notify the agency if any of the four will be released from custody, a process known as a detainer that can lead to deportation.

Deportation!  It is more likely they will get years behind bars and you will be paying for their care with your tax dollars!

I once lived in this county that is a sanctuary for scum like this.  So glad I got out when I did!

Michigan: Unaccompanied Alien Children Run Away from Foster Care

This story is published presumably to get the word out for people to report the missing Guatemalan children, but I wondered how many more of the ‘asylum seekers’ split and disappear into ethnic ‘communities’ in America.

From Michigan Live:

Unaccompanied minors seeking asylum run away from Holland foster home

HOLLAND, MI – Police are looking for a brother and sister who entered the U.S as unaccompanied minors and have run away from their foster home in Holland.

The 16-year-old (if he is 16!) if found should be denied asylum on the grounds that he is too dumb to be allowed to stay. He is endangering his sister (if she is his sister) and is wasting police manpower as the search is conducted.

Juan Emerson Garcia-Yax, 16, and his sister, Emelyn Garcia-Yax, 8 ran away from their foster home on East 25th Street late Sunday, May 31, or early the next morning.

They are originally from Guatemala. They entered the U.S. in March as unaccompanied minors seeking asylum. The Office of Refugee Resettlement placed them in foster care during the legal process.

“Juan left a note for the foster parents expressing his gratitude for everything they had done for them but indicated that they needed to leave to take care of ‘personal matters,’ Holland police Capt. Robert Buursma said in a statement.

Police said no vehicles are missing from the home. Police contacted bus companies and Amtrak but could not find the children. They have a relative in the state of New York but he has not heard from the children, police said.

Police have not determined where the children could be going or what transportation they may have.

My guess is that he isn’t dumb at all, but was supposed to deliver the girl to someone (a human trafficker?) and he messed up.  If anyone sees an update, let me know!

 

DC and Virginia Do NOT Want Federal Shelters for Unaccompanied Alien Children

This is an update of a story I posted here in August where we learned that even the Washington Post was calling out local Leftwing politicians for their hypocrisy!

It is your classic ‘Not-in-my-backyard’ tale.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has rolled out new regulations in a bid to block the project!

Washington, DC and its wealthy (Democrat-run) bedroom communities of northern Virginia do not want shelters for the mostly teens coming across our borders illegally.

Send them to Arizona and Texas instead!

From the Washington Business Journal:

Trump administration drops plans for Northern Virginia immigrant shelter

The Trump administration has called off its plans to bring a new shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children to Northern Virginia.

Federal officials are “no longer conducting exploratory assessments of vacant properties to lease” in the region, according to an email from spokespeople with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. The agency revealed in August that it was considering a variety of Northern Virginia jurisdictions for a new, 110,000-square-foot facility.

But that move prompted fierce pushback from local leaders…

[….]

The HHS officials did not say why they ultimately declined to pursue a shelter in the region. They added in the email that they’ve also stopped searching for space in Atlanta, Central Florida and Los Angeles, and will likely pursue new facilities in Texas and Arizona instead.

The mayor of Alexandria, Virginia, Justin Wilson, said if the feds send some bucks to the city he might consider discussing it further.

“If the federal government wished to provide the city with the resources to care for these children, in partnership, I would be open to discussing such a scenario,” Wilson wrote. “But as it has been presented to the city at this point, I do not believe this is something the city should be a part of.”

The Trump administration’s plans for a similar immigrant shelter in D.C. are considerably more unsettled.

Separately from the search for space in Northern Virginia, HHS also plans to work with Maryland-based contractor Dynamic Service Solutions to open a new shelter in Takoma. Mayor Muriel Bowser, however, has rolled out new regulations in a bid to block that project, though it remains unclear whether federal officials have a way to sidestep her efforts.

DC and Rich Suburbs Fight to Keep Child Migrant Centers out of THEIR Neighborhoods

It is your classic not-in-my-backyard case where the mostly Democrats who control the Washington DC government and its bedroom communities in Northern Virginia (some of the wealthiest counties in American) are in a furor because the Trump Administration has dared to propose child migrant centers in THEIR communities.

Monica Showhalter writing at the American Thinker tells us all about it,

Rich part of Washington, D.C. goes tooth-and-claw to prevent new child-migrant shelter in its neighborhood

First she tells us what the Washington Post said on Friday about the actions of the local elites.

MANY AMERICANS are rightly outraged by the Trump administration’s treatment of migrant children, who have been separated from parents and ill-treated by authorities. Democrats have been understandably eager to distance themselves from such policies — a stance that can result in knee-jerk opposition even to sensible practices in effect during the Obama administration.

DC Mayor Bowser in pink pussy hat protesting the President 

That might explain the nearly uniform outcry from Washington-area politicians incensed at federal plans to build new shelters for migrant children in Northern Virginia and the District .

The shelters, state-licensed and similar to scores across the county in operation since before President Trump took office, would help move migrant children out of squalid, cramped Border Patrol stations near the U.S.-Mexico border. They would provide a way station for unaccompanied minors while federal officials seek to place them with U.S.-based relatives or foster families.

But local politicians, nearly all Democrats, have balked at cooperating with federal authorities on any immigration matter. They have denounced the proposed new shelters with objections that smack of NIMBYism masquerading as humane concern for children. This month, the administration of D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) enacted emergency rules that blocked a planned federal shelter.

The Washington Post is saying that (LOL! not VDARE!).

Showalter goes on.  Here are a few snips. I’ve left out her descriptions of some horrible murder cases in the area, so be sure to visit American Thinker for the whole piece.

Actually, the area has been plagued by some of these child migrants, getting its name in the news more than once for its gruesome murders.

MS 13 recruits kids
MS-13 Recruits the ‘children.’  https://www.breitbart.com/border/2017/05/25/detective-ms-13-using-kids-bolster-ranks-commit-violent-crimes/

 

It’s indisputable that bringing in more unvetted migrants mean there are going to be more of these killings going on, something that might just affect property values and the quality of life in this tony district.

[….]

So many gruesome crimes? Gangs increasing? Recruitment younger and younger? Child migrants here alone looking for some “family”? Gangs know child decapitators won’t get punished? With that sort of thing going on, you can bet the migrant center is going to be a bonanza for gang recruitment and a new wave of gruesome crimes.

Funny how these asylum seekers always seem to end up in U.S. areas where those gangs they’re supposedly fleeing are right there waiting for them.

[….]

The migrant community that rich Washington D.C. has encouraged for its cheap gardeners and maids — and “can’t live without” — as the Daily Beast says, has always been insulated from the real problems of allowing all unvetted comers into the country.Well, now the place for the child migrant shelter is being rightly placed in an affluent part of Washington so they can live with the consequences of their choices, too.

It sounds like President Trump or whoever he’s got on the federal side trying to build this shelter is combining proximity to the Salvadoran illegal immigrant community – Washington’s largest – with a little taste of the medicine these liberals would like to inflict on the border regions and poorer parts of the country.

I can’t think of a better place to put that shelter. Let them live with the result of their own hypocrisy.
