CMC Raid Yields A Convicted Felon

By Greg L | 29 March 2008 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, Manassas City | 15 Comments

Lost among all the moaning and gnashing of teeth from the illegal alien lobby that resulted from last week’s workplace enforcement raid by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement at CMC Concrete was any discussion of whether it’s good policy to allow illegal aliens to easily obtain unlawful employment in our area. An article in today’s DC Examiner points out that among these illegal aliens who are supposedly just trying to provide for their families are some rather disturbing characters.  Among the illegal aliens caught in the raid is a twice-deported illegal alien who had been convicted of attempted murder in 1999.

A twice-deported gang member and illegal immigrant who had been convicted of attempted murder in New York was among the 34 workers arrested Monday during federal raids in Manassas.

Carlos Moran-Bravo, of Mexico, now faces federal charges for re-entering the country after committing an aggravated felony and could face a sentence of up to 20 years in jail if convicted.

Employers who casually hire illegal aliens so they can boost their profit margins are directly responsible for encouraging the presence of dangerous criminal aliens in our communities.  Moran-Bravo would not have been in Manassas unless CMC Concrete was willing to pay him the near-slave wages he received which facilitated his unlawful presence in our community, just as other employers facilitated the presence of illegal aliens who rape four-year old girls, nearly kill local police officers while driving drunk, and account for over 50% of the murders in Prince William County.  While employers reap the profits, the citizens suffer intolerable harm.

It’s unfortunate that Congress has decided to largely shield employers from the consequences of their unlawful actions.  In addition to strong criminal penalties — including jail time — for facilitating the presence of illegal aliens in our communities, these employers should face civil penalties for damages to any citizens caused by the illegal aliens they have encouraged.  Illegal immigration is in far too many cases anything but a victim-less crime, and those who benefit most from this criminal enterprise rarely ever seem to be held to account for the carnage that their actions cause.

Employers could rather easily screen for illegal aliens among their job applicants by participating in the federal E-Verify program, and tens of thousands already do.  Virginia had an opportunity to require that Virginia employers participate in this program, but under pressure from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, a few major employers such as Smithfield Foods, and the illegal alien lobby the Senate Courts of Justice Committee refused to pass this mandate.  Had CMC Concrete used the E-Verify Program, this illegal alien would not have been unlawfully hired.

Let’s hope the pace of these raids steps up considerably.

    The CMC raids are a good beginning, and this is proof that there is a significant criminal element hiding in the shadows of the illegal community. I write letters and make phone calls to Wolf, Warner and Webb demanding to know where there is not more ICE enforcement in our area. Warner was uncomfortable when I demanded a written explanation. It is my understanding that there is an ICE substation in Haymarket in the Food Lion strip mall, so they can’t claim they don’t have local staff. More phone calls and letters demanding action are required.

    Akin to “trigger man laws” companies that hire illegals should face stiff fines for hiring illegals, yet they can plead ignorance with regard to the legal status of many of their hires. That is just an easy excuse that too often gets used.

    Posted: Fri Mar 28, 2008 12:32 pm Post subject: MONTANA TAKING BACK OUR COUNTRY
    Passing this on pass it on to 10 people you know

    This is what we in Montana are doing to take back our country


    Greetings fellow freedom lovers in Riverside.

    We are from the Bozeman, Montana meetup group. This is a preliminary email we are sending out as part of this project we are working on.


    Everyone who is involved in this movement talks about this being a grassroots revolution. And it truly has been so far, in terms of raising money, and the grassroots campaign for the presidential race.

    However, despite this, so many of the people in this movement are focused solely on the top level aspects, like the presidential campaign. This is not what a grassroots movement is. We cannot take back our country just by electing a president. That is a top-down approach, and it will never work. It must be done from the bottom up.

    This is why Ron Paul, as well as Rand Paul, are always telling people to take over their local governments, as well as the state governments. They know that the presidential race pales compared to the importance of people all over the country stepping up to replace the corrupt politicians in their city government, and state legislatures.

    I believe this in the main reason why Ron Paul is hanging in the race; not so much for the nomination itself, but to continue to inspire people to stop basing their hopes on him, to stop focusing so much on the presidential race, but to take it upon themselves, and their countrymen at their side, to take back government little by little.

    When I browse various Ron Paul forums, and talk to other Ron Paul revolutionaries in various parts of the country, I get the sense that many people talk about this now and then, but that many of us dont know how exactly to go about doing this. I also think many people in our movement don’t yet realize that this was & is the a key of the revolution — not simply trying to get Ron Paul elected. I believe the purpose of starting this campaign was not simply to try and win the nomination for Ron Paul, but to inspire people to look not at some national figure to fix things, but to look to themselves, and the person standing next to them. A man once said “ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.”

    Now, I say “ask not what Ron Paul or any other candidate will do to reclaim our country, but ask how each and every one of us can do it, regardless of who is running for president.”

    If you can take back the city councils, and the city precinct positions, you can take back the state legislatures. If you can do this, you can take back each state, one by one. Only when We the People have done this, can we start taking back the national government.

    Here in Montana, we are doing just that. Not only are we taking over local precinct seats, but we are moving on the state legislature. Out of 100 House seats in Montana, we have 4-6 people in our group running for seats, just from our county alone. We even have a few people running for seats in the State Senate. It is much easier to win precinct seats and campaign for house seats than most people realize.

    You don’t need any political background; a few of the people in my group running for the State House are just college kids. It is entirely possible to win these seats with door-to-door campaigning in your district. Most people dont vote in these elections, and with a little effort, just about anyone has a good chance of winning a seat. Most people who vote for the state legislature positions do not really know who is who. They vote based on “oh, I’ve heard of this guy here… I saw his name on a poster… I’ll vote for him”


    I, and a few other people in my group are spearheading a project to organize the groups in Montana into a cohesive effort to take back our local and state government. Right now, people are doing a little of this thing, and a bit of that thing. But there is no cohesive movement in the state focused solely on this particular thing.

    There is no reason why a small group of 50-100 people must stay confined to their local area. There is nothing to stop each and every small group from doing something that can flame the revolution on a national level.

    Our plan is to first build a website that is designed specifically for 3 things:

    1.) Show how simple it actually is for any old average person, and especially for any old Ron Paul group, to start taking over local and state government positions. Since many more people will act on something when someone else is already leading the way, our aim is to design a simplistic, step-by-step process for winning state & local seats.

    2.) Show the importance of focusing on this, and how it is not just ‘one the many things you can do’, but one of the MAIN things we must be doing.

    3.) Show what exactly we are doing to accomplish this, in each city/county in Montana. After forming the groups in our state into a cohesive movement, we want to show the rest of the nation what we are doing — that we are actually DOING IT as a unified, non-piecemeal movement — and not just talking about this.

    This will open the door for groups all over the nation to see how simple and doable this actually is, and hopefully trigger groups all over to follow suit.


    So I am working on getting this message here out to groups all around the nation ahead of time to help encourage many more groups to start doing what we are doing (for those that already havent started), and to let everyone know that We the People here in Montana (especially we in the Bozeman group) are determined to make our state one of hopefully many examples to follow.

    When this project starts gaining momentum, we will be working on exposing every single group in the nation to it, which I believe & hope will help fan the fire that is now beginning to burn within every real Patriot’s heart.

    We must not look to other people, other groups, and other states as an example of what to do. We must become an example to inspire others. That is our goal with this project. It’s time for every person in the Ron Paul movement to realize that this was never really about the presidential race.

    As soon as we get this project moving, we will be contacting groups around the country with more information about this.

    The esteemed Carlos Moran-Bravo just sneaked in to America (twice) and wanted work and send money home and perhaps kill an Amrican or two . He had a bad childhood and really wants to be a good citizen and be law-abiding and assimilate into the great American way of life. He has two swimming trophies for swimming the Rio Grande and is regarded highly amongst his “law-abiding” amigos. HOPEFULLY he will be convicted of his crimes and spend at LEAST 20 years in jail. It is a SHAME that hard working American taxpayers must pay for his room and board. But THAT’s America, thanks to the Liberals. Where is “Hanging” Judge Roy Bean when you need him?

    Good you can have em
    “yes roberg - there is free health care here, moms receive CHILD TAX BENEFITS, and DAY CARE BENEFITS so their children can be cared for while they are out working to make a living. if you are really low income, you also receive FREE ALBERTA HEALTH CARE here, and can also apply for HOUSING ASSISTANCE for parents who are studying to improve their skills and employment prospects also receive FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. currently there are a LARGE number of IMMIGRANTS and refugees moving to the area, and they also receive and make use of literacy training, english and other education along with cultural integration. obviously there are trial and error periods with cultural blending, but there is also unlimited community support to make this as least traumatic as possible for them, and yes - many of them do jobs that others around here would not do.”

    sounds good to me tell every illegal you can GO NORTH YOUNG MAN !!!
    Go North or South but we don’t want you here

    I also read that ICE was not planning on any charges for CMC Concrete. This is the crime, as they are the people commiting a crime greater that the Illegal Immigrant. These business owners are our Friends and Neighbors. They are also Church Going people who complain about the blight, but they are the ones fostering the blight because, if they were not paying the Illegal Immigrant, he would not be here.

    Boycott businesses that use Illegal Immigrants.

    There is enough blame to go around. However, the illegals are just as guilty since they have broken multiple laws in order to gain employment.

    I don’t understand why businesses aren’t fined. It makes no sense to me.

    I also don’t understand why Johns are rarely prosecuted and the hookers are.

    Because there is a huge lack of enforcement and a huge lack of commitment to do that on that end.

    Apparently so. The illegal alien problem would be much less of one if the employers were fined. I am willing to bet nothing happens to CMC.

    Start on Wellington road, then sweep Route 28 and Rt. 234 which would cover the businesses in our area who I suspect are hiring illegals while playing dumb.

    No Mike. The CMC that ICE raided is a local company. They are located off of 234. I don’t think they have ties to any other company.

    We don’t need no stinking Mexican flag
    By Carolyn Hileman (04/06/08)

    Peter Lynch Air force veteran convicted of destroying a Mexican flag, if this were in Mexico one could say that he got what he deserved after all it was their country and their flag and anyone who goes into another country and tears down their flag deserves to be punished. But he wasn’t in Mexico, he was in New Mexico and it is my understanding that is in the United States of America, and that flag was on a college campus flying alone. He did try and alert someone in authority before he took it down but since he was the one who took it down, we can safely assume that the person of authority did not think it was a problem, seems we have a lot of those these days. Now granted he did not get much of a punishment but the fact he was punished at all is beyond me.

    I have yet to hear that anyone was charged with taking down the American flag at the Maywood California post office, stomping on it and raising the Mexican flag and I thought any vandalism of a post office was a Federal offense, I must be wrong though since no one was even charged for that. As a matter of fact, do you remember the marches and seeing our flag hung upside down under a Mexican flag? That is OK since the law enforcement there obviously doesn’t because no one was charged in that case either. But Mr. Lynch standing on American soil decides to take down a Mexican flag hanging on American soil is found guilty of destroying the Mexican flag??? The prosecutor said it wasn’t his flag to destroy, but I don’t think the one in Maywood belonged to the Mexican protestors did it? So where is the justice here, how is it that these people can take down our flag, stomp on it, burn it, pee on it and if an American citizen takes down a Mexican flag he is charged, has to hire an attorney and is then convicted of destroying a Mexican flag in the United States of America??

    It is my belief that the good citizens of this country need to call these people and remind them what country they are in, if you believe that as well might I suggest you call (505) 277-SAFE (7233) Enough is enough I am sick of there being one law for American citizens and another for those who have come to this country illegally, I am sick of hearing how we must show compassion to criminals, I am fed up with American citizens being charged for things they will not touch an illegal immigrant for. This has got to stop, and the only way it will ever stop is if those who would vilify and incarcerate good American citizens for doing what any other red blooded American citizen would do are called to account for their actions. Our government is not going to do it, we are the only ones who will stand up for our country and demand that it be secure and we will be the only ones to say this is inherently wrong. We must let these people know that not only do we support what he we would have did the same thing as he did. This is America, we have our own flag, we don’t need no stinking Mexican flags…
