The issue and influx of Refugees is HUGE - Ann and Ruthie will cover as much as humanly possible.
Ann will describe for us the basic structure of the refugee resettlement program …adding most people will be shocked that we have been doing this for 35 years! Ann states…”This is a critical and timely look at a program whose impact increasingly is affecting American society across the nation.”
As you know Ruthie considers a lot of what is taking place in refugee settlement today is an end around illegal immigration.

Several of the Programs they will discuss are: 


[VIDEO] DHS Caught Moving Somali Muslim Illegals Into California

According to the DHS, all that any of the African refugees must do is find a border agent and say “I am in danger in my home country, and want asylum in the United States.” Once they utter those words, they are off limits to deportation and are turned over to DHS resettlement specialists who help them move into communities across the country.  None of the illegal aliens receive background checks.  After settlement, they are immediately eligible for welfare benefits, and later, may bring in other family members.
The CAM Refugee Program - The Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program provides certain qualified minors and qualifying family members in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are currently undertaking to the United States.

The Syrian Refugee Program - The United States will see thousands more refugees from Syria in 2015 and 2016, despite concerns about foreign fighters. Mike McCaul (R-Texas) said it would be a “huge mistake” to bring refugees from Syria and Turkey into the United States where they “could potentially be radicalized” but this Administration seems to be pushing full speed ahead

Mexicans Against Illegal Immigration with April Mrs. Lil Dog Crooks on The Ruthie Report

Mexicans Against Illegal Immigration with April (Mrs. Lil Dog) Crooks on The Ruthie Report
Please join Ruthie this Thursday May 21st, 2015 at 9 pm EST, 8 pm CST, 6 pm PST
with GUEST: April - Mrs. Lil Dog) Crooks
Leading the way with the group Mexican Against Illegal Immigration, as well as aiding Robert Crooks in his endeavors.

LIVE:  Thursday evening
Mexicans Against Illegal Aliens is simply a group of super ticked off people who are of Mexican ethnicity and are Americans
or legal aliens who followed the law.
Ever wonder where all those voices are of Americans of Mexican/Hispanic/Latino decent that stand with us on ending illegal immigration?
Do you wonder why we do not hear more from them? Is it because they are afraid to speak up, is it because they are just not engaged
or is it because ……they too ….like you and I …are ignored and demeaned? So what does the liberal left call those Americans of Mexican decent
who stand against illegal immigration from Mexico and beyond …. a token racist? I wouldn’t be surprised and I will ask April.
Please join April and Ruthie to discuss her life on both sides of this issue. What Mexicans Against Illegal Immigration is all about and
what they future activities, plans and goals are in this battle
April Crooks is an AMERICAN of  Mexican ethnicity. My father was born in Mexico and my mother in Idaho. I am from Utah. My father’s family came here legally and made sure that they learned English. They assimilate d to our American culture and way of life.
April has lived both sides of this issue -
She states……………………………..
I have lived both sides of the argument and the point is that we are a society of laws, not special interests. What is happening today with the obama ministration allowing the dreamers, their families, and now flying in their family members, is a slap in the face to my family members in friends that came here legally. Doing things legally you get punished and doing things lawlessly you get rewarded. How is that right? The Mexicans Against Illegal Aliens is simply a group of super ticked off people who are of Mexican ethnicity and are Americans or legal aliens who followed the law. We have seen our wages stagnate if not go down while inflation has increased. The unemployment rate reported by the government is a lie. We are not in an economic recovery and anyone with two brain cells who isn’t indoctrinated by the state run media can see that. We don’t have a labor shortage, we have a job shortage. And jobs need to go to Americans, not illegal aliens, h1b1 visas, or foreign workers.
She has earned a dual bachelor’s degree in business administration and management as well as a master’s in business. April has worked in construction hanging drywall and literally worked with 95% illegal aliens. Many of them don’t go through the apprenticeship program and learned in residential construction and then come on board to commercial construction and Union jobs indicating they were journeymen, when in fact many of them were no better than apprentices.
And much more - please tune in for her whole story and thoughts

This Monday is Memorial Day -
I had a message prepared but decided I would rather share a message from a fellow Sister Patriot Bonnie Eggle instead Bonnie’s son - Kris Eggle was shot ….murdered by an illegal alien while working with the US Park Service.
As Memorial Day fast approaches, I would like to thank ALL veterans, past and present, for their service to this great country of ours, the United States of America. I especially want to thank our family members: David Eggle, father-in-law Bob Eggle, stepdad Keith Nichols, my nephew Mike Gee, my dad Vale Gee, and many uncles and cousins. Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank my loving husband Bob Eggle and my precious son Kristopher William Eggle for their service and sacrifices they gave in order to help keep us free. You are all heroes in my book! May God bless you all and may HE continue to bless this country.
From Sister Patriot and good friend

From Ruthie - This was the scene at the Minnesota State Capital as the MN Legislature voted on drivers licenses for illegal aliens - Good Grief!!!!
GREAT NEWS………………….
BREAKING….. The legislation was D E F E A T E D ….NO drivers licenses for illegal aliens in Minnesota as it should be.
Unfortunately - with the Special Session now called for by Dayton - I fear the issue may rear it’s ugly head again… I will stay on top of it - but for now - THANK YOU to the Representatives of Minnesota who stood up for the Rule of Law and the American Citizenry - ending drivers licenses for the illegal alien in Minnesota.

A sad day for immigrant families – and for America
By Peter Montgomery
Sadly and a flawed ruling…..what are you talking about…’s called the Rule of Law… you know the rules we are expected to live by. I am so tired of this bleeding heart approach to those who spit on our laws. You write about DACA individuals but these sort of articles ALWAYS exclude that these parents (those who brought them in) are the ones responsible for the status of these DACA individuals - not We The People and you fail to mention that these very same parents will get a pass too…..because YOU will continue with your lawless opinions and objectives - if the “FAMILY IS TORN APART…. not to mention all those these DACA’s want to bring in. ENOUGH! Wouldn’t it be nice for a change if those who write articles such as this koolaide drinking BS - would focus on Americans Families, the Homeless, our Elderly or Veterans as much as they do the LAWLESS ILLEGAL (note the correct word) ILLEGAL ALIEN.

News for May 7th

Did Hillary Just Outplayed Every Republican Candidate on Illegal Immigration?
By Ruthie Hendrycks
May 2015
Hillary Clinton on May 5th in Las Vegas announced that she believes that illegal aliens should have a path to full or equal citizenship - did we expect any less…… and by doing so, did she just outplayed every Republican Candidate?
If you are involved in fighting illegal immigration or have a minimal clue of our political process… you know that Clinton alone cannot make the statements she is spewing. Clinton cannot grant amnesty without Congress and one would think that a candidate with trustworthy issues would not throw out promises at the top of a hat that she cannot solely keep. Yes, I know that Obama is doing it on a smaller level but prosecutorial discretion does not include a full out blanket amnesty. It should be noted the even with a majority in Congress - Obama did not keep those campaign empty promises. Let’s hope that someone questions Clinton on this unconstitutional argument and that those Democrats who stand with
you and I …against rewarding illegal aliens with a pass - sound off and have they voices heard.
As for the Republican Party Candidates - have they just been outplayed? While many attempt to take a middle road on the issue of illegal immigration (with the exception of Bush) and are not clearly stating their future plans on the issue, Clinton has shared her position - not actions mind you - just political campaign narrative - so will we now see the GOP ’uping’ their game by making unprofessional and unconstitutional promises they cannot keep and pandering for votes with promises of amnesty?
SIMPLY PUT: Will the GOP Candidates try to keep up with or out pander Clinton on this issue?
If so - is there a line/reward/empty promise that they will not cross - in their attempts to keep up with the Clintons and Hillary’s egregious statements? If this is the sort of leadership that they posses, then what is the difference really between the two major parties? And, why is it that neither party acknowledge the fact that the majority of Americans do not support amnesty for illegal aliens?
And if not, then why continue the games and not just get down to business with their future intentions.
Instead of clarifying their positions on illegal immigration like Clinton just did with her unlawful agenda… Republicans continue to use those empty tired old comments and quotes that “we must address border security first” but the reality is, that the border could have been and should have been secured in 1986 as we were promised - it was not and still is not secured today.
It could be if only the political will was there.
The insanity already has begun, May 6th I heard Noelle Nikpour state on Neil Cavuto that…”Rubio and Bush both speak Spanish - Clinton does not and cannot speak their language“…… WHAT!!!
The Language of the land should be and is English - so now we have Republican Strategists pushing Spanish as if it was a great campaign point - what happened to the talking points of …they must learn English? Apparently for individuals like Noelle Nikpour and those who will help push this insanity …. assimilation is not important - nor is our immigration laws. Quite frankly the candidate that campaigns in Spanish is just another reason that will ensure they do not get my vote.
We Shall See!!!
Hillary Clinton Calls for ‘Path to Full and Equal Citizenship’ for Illegal Immigrants
From Fellow Patriot, Friend and Texas Border Volunteer Member ………………………………..
Regarding the Chinese that illegally cross the Texas border, there are eight rescue beacons in Brooks County alone (70 miles north of the border) that have instructions printed in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. This is a KABB Fox News story on the subject.
It is shameful that the Texas Legislature fails to acknowledge the huge influx of OTMs (Other Than Mexican) that continue to flow across the border. They would prefer for the average, every day citizen (voter) to view anyone crossing the border as poor Mexicans just looking for work. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Rep Norma Torres Bill DHS Communication Enhancement Act
Will Obstruct Border Patrol Agents On-The-Job
Newly elected Rep Norma Torres (D) Ontario, CA, has introduced a bill that would require the Department of Homeland Security to assess the Department’s ability to serve individuals with limited English proficiency.
We The People Rising will join with groups nationwide, such as New York ICE, Minnesotans Seeking Immigration Reform http://Minnesotans Seeking Immigration Reform and The Remembrance Project, Houston, TX, in an effort to contact congress members to request that they oppose Rep Norma Torres’ DHS Communication Enhancement Act HR 1829. The legislation was introduced in the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee on 4/29/15.
The bill would require a strategic plan and a timeline for implementation.
“Rep Norma Torres’ legislation sends the wrong message to DHS departments, such as our border patrol agents,” Robin Hvidston, Executive Director of We The People Rising, said. “Our Department of Homeland Security should be focused on securing the homeland not facilitating those who are not proficient in English. This would be a taxpayer funded program that would not be focused on securing the border.”
Nationwide coalitions are mobilized to stop HR 1829 in committee.
According to Rep Norma Torres, the DHS Communication Enhancement Act requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to assess the Department’s ability to serve individuals with limited English proficiency and requires the Secretary to submit to Congress a summary of its findings and a plan.
“This bill does not promote border security, and it should be shelved at the committee stage,” Hvidston said.
A campaign of concerned citizens has launched a nationwide effort calling for citizens to contact their U.S. Representatives and the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee. Constituents will attend the Rep Norma Torres May 7th Congress on Your Corner Montclair, CA event to express their stance on the newly introduced legislation.
“At the May 7th event, our message to Rep Torres is clear and simple: help Americans. Our lawmakers in Washington, DC, should be focused on our U.S. foster kids, veterans and our homeless populations,” Hvidston said. “Our tax dollars and the efforts of our U.S. Representatives should be benefiting our own unemployed American workers and their families and on securing our borders to protect them.”

Torres Introduces First Bill: DHS Communication Enhancement Act
April 15, 2015
Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congresswoman Norma J. Torres (D-CA) introduced the DHS Communication Enhancement Act, a bill that requires the Department of Homeland Security to assess its ability to effectively serve and communicate with individuals of limited English proficiency.
“Every year, the Department of Homeland Security interacts with thousands of individuals who don’t speak English, often in their most vulnerable times,” said Torres. “The ability to effectively communicate with the people it serves is critical to the Department’s mission to protect our nation.”
The DHS Communication Enhancement Act requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to assess the Department’s ability to serve individuals with limited English proficiency and requires the Secretary to submit to Congress a summary of its findings and a plan, including a timeline for implementation, to improve the Department’s ability to serve non-English speakers.
“I have spent my political career working to make sure under-represented and non-English speaking communities have access to critical services. Nowhere is that more important than in DHS’s work,” continued Torres. “With employees spread across 22 different sub-agencies working to secure our cities from terrorist attacks, protect and ensure the efficient movement of people and goods at our airports and borders, and help communities recover from natural disasters, this bill will help the Department better protect our diverse population and keep the American people safe.”
Earlier reports by the Government Accountability Office and DHS itself have shown deficiencies in the capacity of individual components of DHS to interact with and effectively serve non-English speaking communities. This legislation will keep the Department accountable by not only requiring an assessment but a Department-wide strategic plan and a timeline for implementation.
