Illegal Immigrants Aided To Avoid Feds Through New Soros-Funded App

By Stefan M. Kløvning

Washington, Immigration – A new app has recently been released with the intent to undermine law enforcement’s ability to enforce 8 U.S. Code §1325 on illegal immigration. The app is called Notifica, and is specifically designed by the Soros-backed immigrant youth network United We Dream (UWD), ‘precisely to have a plan of action at you’ by making it easier for illegal immigrants to send one-click alerts to family members, friends and lawyers in case law enforcement officers come on the door or they are in risk of being detained.

It is by no measure the first time Soros’ Open Foundations Society has stood on the forefront in defence of immigrants, though many of them may be illegal. Between 2004 and 2014 they donated about $76 million to the cause.

The Open Foundations Society is still not the biggest supporter of the network. They donated $75,000 to them in 2010. The Ford Foundation, for instance, gave them a staggering $2.3 million in 2013. United We Dream was also one of the 31 organizations ‘supporting social justice’ which Colin Keapernick supported last year, providing them a donation of $25,000. Other donors include

  • Anonymous
  • Arcus Foundation
  • Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice
  • Evelyn & Walter Haas Jr. Fund
  • Four Freedoms Fund
  • Hagedorn Foundation
  • Hill-Snowdon Foundation
  • Houston Endowment
  • J.M. Kaplan Fund
  • Latino Giving Houston
  • Marguerite Casey Foundation
  • Unbound Philanthropy
  • Unitarian Universalist
  • Veatch Program at Shelter Rock
  • Wild Geese Foundation

In 2013, their income was over $5 million, but in 2014 and 2015 it has been about $3 million.

UWD started as a project of the National Immigration Law Center (NILC), which received $206,453 in government grants between 2008 and 2010, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch. NILC has had a central role in Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which has shielded hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from deportation. In other words, the tax-money of the American people are being used to protect people whom have no legal right to stay in the country.

Former President Obama, is, however, far from the only politician who has aided illegal immigrants in this manner. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, for instance, tipped off immigrants in the city in February, ahead of an ICE operation to look for illegal immigrants, many of whom were suspected of criminal offences beyond just crossing the border illegally. She regret nothing of the decision, though being condemned by ICE, the President, and many others. She’s one of those politicians who seem to care more about the interests of the non-citizens than the citizens.

The app is developed from the demand of simple communications in their networks as an increasing amount of law enforcement officers are guarding the U.S. Southern border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration, especially with consideration to the recent central-American caravan seeking citizenship in the United States. Adrian Reyna, director of Membership of Technology and Strategies for the UWD, reasoned that ‘when something actually happens, most people don’t know what to do at that moment,’ and that they should have a tool – such as this app – to get a plan whenever they may need one. Damaris González, a recipient of the DACA program along with her two sisters, has, along with her sisters, downloaded the app. She was brought into the U.S. in 1985 illegally, and states that Notifica ‘will make it easier for my family to contact me in the case, God forbid, something may happen.’

On the other side of the story, however, the app is being used as a way to evade the law. Co-founder of the Hispanics for Trump group, Marri Velasquez, said she was not surprised by the release of the app, adding ‘It’s like fugitives, always running around trying to find the new thing. … They use Nextdoor.com and other network groups to alert each other.’ She also said that she thought that Notifica wouldn’t make much difference since there are so many other apps they make use of.

Should they have the possibility to evade the law in this manner? There seems to be a degree of entitlement in the illegal immigrant community, in that they believe it’s their ‘right’ to be in the country and to receive citizenship despite their already having broken the law of the land. As they stay in the country, and aid each other in order to prevent being caught by the authorities, it’s almost like they believe they’re above the law, above the law of that nation and all nations, claiming themselves to be ‘citizens of the world.’  And as the drug cartel business is still being a problem in the relation between Mexico and the States, control of who comes in and out of the country is crucial. Business like this among the illegal immigrant community undermines this control.

 

Main Enemy of Brexit: Soros donates £400K to pro-EU campaign

UK – Billionaire investor George Soros has received immense criticism again recently by giving £400,000 to pro-EU campaign ‘Best for Britain,’ whose chairman – Lord Malloch-Brown – has plead to stop Brexit by bringing down the Tory government. He is one of three main figures planning to launch a nationwide advertising campaign at the end of the month, which they hope will lead to a second referendum to keep the United Kingdom in the Union.

 

Their strategy is to convince Tory MPs to vote against Theresa May’s negotiation deals – regardless of its content – to trigger a new referendum or general election. “Malloch-Brown and his backers believe that, if Parliament rejects the Brexit deal, the government will fall, and Brexit can then be stopped,” Nick Timothy of the Telegraph explains.

 

Soros has, of course, gotten a lot of critique for supporting such a movement openly. A supporter of Soros, Fraser Nelson, for instance, critiqued him in a recent article called George Soros is a champion of democracy, but on Brexit he is on the wrong side:

“Many people think the elites have stolen their democracy,” Soros wrote a year ago. Quite so, yet he has now ended up bankrolling a campaign to reverse the biggest vote cast in the history of British democracy.  

He denied accusations of him undermining democracy and said that the movement had his “wholehearted support.” Soros has – as a rationale for this position – referred to Britain doing economically better than the rest of Europe before Brexit, and claims that this has now been reversed, “with Continental economies powering ahead while Britain lags behind.” Such claims require great evidence, which he has not been cited to provide, but even regardless of whether this is true or not, the critique of him undermining democracy still stands. If the people have been given a vote, and the majority has voted for a path they want their country to follow, it naturally undermines the democratic system if it is attempted to nullify the results or make them arbitrary. That’s essentially what Soros does here. If he doesn’t like an outcome of an election or a referendum, he will do what’s in his power to override the results. Fraser says, “Soros is a great advocate of doing research before spending money, but failed to do enough before donating £400,000 to Best for Britain.” The sum itself isn’t enough for it to be likely to change public opinion drastically, but it has drawn attention to interventions in politics by such people as Soros. Fraser describes Best for Britain as they “could have been put together by a committee of sadistic Brexiteers wishing to caricature their opponents as out-of-touch elitists.” A quite telling illustration of the movement.

 

Soros doesn’t have much to gain of supporters by this investment, but he does have a goal, and his goals have been working out quite well for him in the past. He is known as the man who “broke the bank of England,” when he won a fortune in a gamble against the sterling on Black Wednesday in 1992, forcing the UK to withdraw from the European Exchange Rate mechanism after having tried desperately to increase interest rates to prevent it. He funded the Open Society Foundation (OSF) in 1979, which he has donated over $32 billion since its launch, making it the second largest philanthropic fund in the world.

 

Fraser quotes former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakshvili – whom Soros helped get elected – to have said “Soros was at his best in a clear battle between democracy and authoritarianism, but when he starts to play politics, he’s not that good.”
