Privacy For Illegals Trumps All, According to Obama Administration

By Greg L | 9 August 2010 | National Politics, Illegal Aliens | 5 Comments

When you or I are processed by the judicial system, everything is public record.  If you’re an illegal alien being processed for removal because of a violation of federal law, your information apparently receives a higher degree of protection that American citizens are not entitled to.  To wit, from the Washington Post:

“ICE told Prince William County Supervisor Corey Stewart the agency would provide available statistics, for instance about the crimes and custody status of individuals referred to ICE by 287(g) trained officers,” ICE spokesman Richard Rocha said. “We anticipate that research to take a few weeks. To clarify, ICE will not be providing personally identifiable information — like names or addresses — to Stewart or others. Under DHS’s Privacy Policy, the Privacy Act, which protects against the release of certain personal information, extends to aliens as well as U.S. citizens.”

Yes, we are all equal, but some are more equal than others.  Is it too late to declare myself to be an illegal alien so I can qualify for all these special protections?

    Wonder when the American government is going to start representing ****AMERICANS**** again?

    Stuff like this really irritates me, Greg. Thanks for keeping on top of it!

    Didn’t President Obama personally “blink” on this when confronted by Corey? That was reported here quite recently. It must be true. So who are these low-level ICE people in the article? Why isn’t the President himself doing the spadework of pulling together statistics? Surely there is some spare time somewhere in his schedule.

    You know, I very much doubt that there are more than a small number of persons incarcerated in the United States whose immigration status is not known. And if it is unknown even for that small number, it’s because the local authorities didn’t inquire. I know of no legal reason that state and local authorities can’t get that information when a person is locked up for crimes. It’s one of the many great sillinesses about the public debate on this issue that people imply that that information is unobtainable.

    In MHO, the comment ” To clarify, ICE will not be providing personally identifiable information — like names or addresses — to Stewart or others” is more political posturing than a reality. I guess we will just have to see just how accurate the ICE spokesperson Richard Rocha is in a “few weeks”.

    As it was stated that Prince William County wants to know the status of the illegal criminals turned over to ICE by Prince William County, I would think they would be compelled to confirm who was released and where are they now.

    If they can publish your name and address in the paper as a result of your being a person of interest or your arrest - suspicion of guilt, and not conviction, then they should have no problem releasing the names and whereabouts of these specific individuals to the proper authorities in Prince William County.

    If this in fact turns out to be not the case and / or they drag their feet about it, then the uproar should be cranked up to… eleven.

    Did anyone read today’s editorial in the N&M? It seems like that paper would just like the Bristow car crash (in which a drunk illegal immigrant driver killed a nun and seriously injured two others) to go away. They are surprised that VA lawmakers are still talking about this. This newspaper needs to know that their customers have a far different view - shared by a majority of Virginians - that we are tired of the blatant disregard of our laws and its detrimental consequences. Again, I welcome all LEGAL immigrants - glad you are here and contributing to our society - but I am not going to support illegal immigration and those who fail to pay taxes along with the rest of us, and I am tired of N&M’s tacit support of it. I’m tired of this paper’s bias towards illegal immigrants so I contacted them with this e-mail. Please join me in sending them a message.

    Here’s my e-mail to them:

    I have been a subscriber to the N&M for almost a year now. I have come to realize that your paper has a bias towards illegal immigrants in the editorials and the news articles. I wonder why N&M would be supportive of lawbreakers. In today’s editorial, you mention that some VA congressman is speaking “ad nauseum” about the Bristow crash involving an illegal immigrant who was driving drunk and killed a nun. I have to tell you, I think it is perfectly appropriate for Virginians to be upset about this and to work for greater resolve politically to address the serious problems that are associated with illegal immigration. In the same issue, you post yet another view that takes a very lenient approach to illegal immigration. Claire Guthrie Gastanaga writes, “… I don’t see how authorizing the local police to ask me to prove I am a citizen will make Virginia safer.” I’m really surprised to hear this coming from a former deputy attorney general whose job it was to uphold the laws of this great state! Has she not made the connection that those who flaunt our laws by not entering our country through the proper channels will have no regard for our other laws? I am sorry to see N&M day after day, promoting this tacit disregard for our laws. It is disappointing and I thought you should know that your customers are really scratching their heads and wondering where your heads are at? Sincerely, Kris Day

    “US Justice Department issued a report on criminal aliens that were incarcerated in federal and state prisons and local jails. In the population study of 55,322 illegal aliens, researchers found that they were arrested at least a total of 459,614 times, averaging about 8 arrests per illegal alien. Nearly all had more than 1 arrest. Thirty-eight percent (about 21,000) had between 2 and 5 arrests, 32 percent (about 18,000) had between 6 and 10 arrests, and 26 percent (about 15,000) had 11 or more arrests.” ” They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien. One arrest incident may include multiple offenses, a fact that explains why there are nearly one and half times more offenses than arrests. Almost all of these illegal aliens were arrested for more than 1 offense. Slightly more than half of the 55,322 illegal aliens had between 2 and 10 offenses.”
