The Deadly Consequences of the Left’s Pro-Illegal Alien Agenda

Pages: 1 2

For Shaw Sr., these stories are all too familiar. His son Jamiel Shaw Jr. seemed to have the world at his feet in 2008. Only a Junior in high school, Shaw Jr. was the star running back, corner back, and kick and punt returner on his football team. He was already being recruited by schools like Stanford and Rutgers.

“He was disciplined, a good kid, and got a long with everybody,” remembers Jamiel Shaw Sr. of his son.  On March 2, 2008, Shaw Jr. was walking home from school when a car approached him.  Pedro Espinoza, an illegal alien who is part of the brutal 18th Street Gang, stepped out the car, approached Shaw, shot him once in the stomach, and then walked behind Shaw and shot him in the back of his head.

To make the tragedy even worse, Jamiel Shaw’s mother, Sergeant Anita Shaw, was serving in Iraq at the time of his murder.

Espinoza was released from Los Angeles County Prison on unrelated charges only a day earlier. LA County Prison officials failed to notify ICE he was being detained.  (Pedro Espinoza was recently convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to the death penalty)

“That’s what happened to my son, someone decided not to check,” said Shaw Sr. He continued, “If they had to call ICE, my son would have been alive.”

With Secure Communities, such deadly discretion is taken away from local law enforcement.  Even though every one of the fifty-eight counties in California is signed up with Secure Communities, AB 1081 will make that cooperation moot. That’s because AB 1081 will end cooperation between the State of California and ICE on detainers on all but the most extreme cases.

Jamiel Shaw Sr. believes that if it becomes law more families will go through the same tragedy.

“I’m trying to prevent other people from going through this.”

AB 1081 passed the mostly Democratic California legislature in August and now it awaits the signature of California Governor Jerry Brown. Jamiel Shaw Sr. is hopeful but he’s also realistic.

“Do I expect him to veto it, no.”

Even as the Shaw family battles against AB 1081, they’ve also fought a largely fruitless battle to strengthen California’s immigration laws. They helped to craft Jamiel’s Law, which would have mandated that all illegal alien gang members in California be turned over to immigration authorities upon apprehension, along with earmarking more state resources to help police track down and apprehend illegal alien gang members.  While this law appears to be easy to support, Jamiel Shaw Sr. said he’s been unable to get anyone from the California legislature to champion it.

The Shaw family has been trying to get the necessary signatures to get Jamiel’s Law on the California ballot, effectively sidestepping the California legislature. Thus far, they’ve been unable to get the necessary seventy-six thousand signatures necessary to get a proposed law on the ballot. Jamiel Shaw Sr. said he remains undaunted.

“I’ll fight for Jamiel’s Law until the day I die,” said the elder Shaw.

    Proof, as if we needed more of it, that California voters and the liberals they elect are on a one-way course to economic and social destruction. They have no idea of what they are doing. They have only a blind faith in a utopian ideology that has failed throughout history, and is failing them now. A real-life analogy is demonstrated in the deaths of over 900 koolaid drinkers in Guyana, which event was orchestrated by the Rev. Jim Jones. The mindset was the same—emotional, illogical, and moonbeam.

      Yah, but it feels like the right thing to do!

    In the meantime, while this nonsense is going on with the ACLU, ICE, and local police, the government–state and federal–is busy trying to take our guns away. So we're not only supposed to give ourselves up to be butchered by any illegal out for an afternoon's sport; we don't(or won't) have the right to defend ourselves. American citizens are abused in so many ways lately, it makes one want to puke. However, there might be one MAN left in California. State assemblyman Bill Duplissea, Republican from San Mateo, would support Jamiel Shaw, Sr.

    our criminal elite worship at the altar of illegal immigration, but that is only the smaller part of the problem. at the same time that our criminal elite are winking at illegal immigration, they are actively encouraging, aiding, abetting, and lauding the LEGAL immigration of toxic muslims, who are sworn enemies of our country, and dedicated to its overthrow.

    One must wonder why federal funds are not witheld from these lawbreakers.

    • Roger

      One must wonder not just that, but why Arizona was attacked and our own government sided with Mexico when the legal case against Arizona went forward.

      Obama seems to support anyone but legitimate hard working Americans.

    Pointing fingers at the leftists pushing the elimination of borders (borders being the difference between “allowed” and “not allowed”) the elimination of consequences for violation of American sovereign territory is not just a treason of the Left. So-called “Republicans” need to start dealing with their own sins, and Bush/McVain/Grahmnesty/ Cornyn are all sinners on this issue, and Romney seemed VERY ready to consider Rubio (an “immigration reform” pusher, and Constitutionally disqualified from the VP slot) as VP candidate, not to mention Romney getting caught employing illegals back in Taxachussetts days. Everyone seems to have forgotten the transnational Superhighway project pushed under Bush (and still simmering quietly on a back burner), the brutal abuses of laws WE must follow of foreign trucks running our highways with drivers that can’t read English, driving trucks that U.S. operators would never be allowed to drive.

    This is NOT just a “Leftist” issue, and the traitors who would leave our borders open, in effect, should be smoked out and named no matter what party they are from. The move to deny the Middle Eastern countries that now call us “enemy” the BILLIONS in aid that we are still sending them was soundly defeated in the Senate by BOTH parties by around 85%. They are killing our people and we are paying them to do it. That is the very definition of the close of our civilization. “America commits suicide.”

    I get really, really tired of RINOs (5 Trillion spent by Obama in four years had to come from somewhere, and the House has been solidly Republican for two years) shouting and pointing fingers at commie-lib Dems and then doing or acquiescing to the EXACT same things. It becomes very easy for people to become cynical and disbelieving when RINOs call themselves “conservatives” when the are Democrat-lite.

    Face the reality of the situation. Obama and his administration let these murders occur. Just get used to more of the same.

  • cynthia curran

    Well, the left is more guilty since it will not deport illegal immigrants that committed crimes in the us but the right is not off the hook either since President Bush wanted to legalized millions that already were involved in Identify Theft. But the left and right have been bad on this issue to please the government of Mexico that receives billions in remittances money or trying to get the Hispanic vote and pleasing companies that prefer to hire illegal immigrants..

    Obama prattles on about global warming ,strengthing the middle class and Obamacare while undermining everyone of those subjects by allowing illegals to roam here freely.
    Every illegal leaves an average of 8 lbs of trash behind crossing the border.
    They have re-introduced diseases into our society -including bubonic plague, antobiotic resistant TB,whopping cough and bed bugs.
    There are over 4 million known drug cartel members here.
    ID theft by illegals is now our #1 crime .
    28% of fatal car accidents are caused by illegals.
    46% of illegals are on welfare and Obama opened SS Disability more so they can receive it.
    59% of illegals have children and remain single to abuse entitlements,the average length of time they remain on welfare is 8 years .They have 4 children for every 1 child born to citizens .
    China is producing fake drivers licenses now and selling the to illegals (IL).
    Illegals file an average of 4 million $ in fraudulent income tax returns .
    But hey Obama bought himself as easy 5 million votes.

    Such injustice by the California is the result of political Gerrymandering that keeps the left in office until they get old and die.
    It should also be noted that the assassination of Shaw was just a paet of a greater program by Mexican gangs to purge Black people from the gangs domains.

    The results of evil politics.

  • Ura Fecal

    Well, people get the government they deserve. I wonder if Shaw Sr. was a life long voting Democrat, and whether he still votes that way. There are plenty of white and asian Democratic voters that are middle class taxpayers and will continue to vote Democratic until the day their personal and financial safety is totally destroyed.

    At this point, only a total break down and civil war will turn the tide; or the taxpayers refusing to pay taxes, just like the original Colonists. Reading the Founding Fathers and Tocqueville, they predicted this and provided a remedy.

  • cynthia curran

    Well, its not Gerrymandering that doing this only but changing demographics to white liberals, Hispanics and Asians and the dumb Republicans helped the Democratic do this in California way back in 1986 when Reagan legalized millions.

  • cynthia curran

    What about Hispanics when they are middle class they tend to vote Democratic as much as Asians yet the Republican Party is always wanting to get the Hispanic vote. Steve Sailer wrotemore middle class Whittier Hispanics in La County vote Democratic compared to the White people of Whittier that tend to vote Repubican..

  • Ghostwriter

    It isn't going to be native-born Americans who are going to be hurt by this. Legal immigrants will also be in danger because of this silly worship of illegal immigrants. It should be the native-born Americans and the LEGAL aliens we should care about,not the illegal ones.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    The left passes laws that obstruct any safety for our citizens and cite safety passing laws that
    allow government to place our children in danger at the hands of murdering criminals. If
    Americans have not completely lost the ability to tell right from wrong we may have a chance
    voting out leftists this election. The division of right and wrong creates a tension that eventually
    creates a divide so deep it leeds to bloody civil strife and dissolution, just what the left is
    working toward, the fight between good and evil goes on……………….William
