San Diego Hispanics Launch Anti-ICE Community Patrols

In San Diego, California, Mexico’s Excelsior has reported, the “locals” have organized a patrol to “protect the community”—but not from petty crime or even gang violence, like, say, New York’s Guardian Angels. [Arman equipo antirredadas; ayudan a migrantes en EU (“Anti-raid Team Organized, Aiding Migrants in the United States”), by Manuel Ocano, Aug. 9, 2019].

No, this unit has an altogether different job, as the logo on a “patrol car” proclaims: Protegiendo la Comunidad – No al Terror de ICE y la Policia (“Protecting the Community — No to the Terror of ICE and the Police”).

Another patrol-unit motto: A defender a nuestra comunidad del odio antimexicano—"To defend our community from anti-Mexican hate.”

The caption under Excelsior’s photo above explains succinctly what the organization does:

La agrupación recorre todos los días las localidades de California, en busca de agentes de migración uniformados o encubiertos, con el lema ‘Protegiendo a la comunidad’ y defendiendo a los mexicanos en Estados Unidos. Foto: Patrullas Comunitarias de Unión del Barrio de San Diego—"the group defends the neighborhoods of California each day, in search of uniformed or undercover immigration agents, with the motto ‘Protecting the community and defending Mexicans in the United States.’”

Make that “illegal-alien Mexicans in the United States!”

According to Excelsior, the activists patrol “in the early morning, at dawn and in the evenings in neighborhoods of working families.”

The organization, formed by workers, operates with its own resources to document the operations of immigration agents. By filming them and advising the neighborhoods at the same time, the group works within the law.

Bear in mind this is San Diego, which is, last time I checked, still part of the United States, even if it is in Mexifornia.

Since the administration of President Donald Trump revealed that ICE was preparing to deport “a million” undocumented persons, this group does daily patrols of neighborhoods such as Lindavista, Sherman Heights, Logan Barrio and the south of San Diego, in alliance with other groups.

That’s a laugh. I’ll believe that Trump will deport a million illegals when it actually happens.

Anyway, one of the group’s coordinators was totally upfront about its goals:

Benjamin Prado, one of the coordinators of the Community Patrols, explained that the biggest contribution of the project is to “frustrate the operations of La Migra, to prevent them arriving by surprise to separate working families.”

Of course, “frustrating the operations of La Migra” is a federal crime. See Obstructing a Federal Officer, 18 USC 111, and 8 USC 1324, harboring illegal aliens.

Here’s one you haven’t heard about. I happened upon it by sheer accident.

Antwon Rose II was a 17-year-old boy shot by an East Pittsburgh police officer in June 2018 after he bolted from a jitney car that had been stopped by the officer. The Times published about a half-dozen stories on Antwon Rose—or as the Times calls him, “Antwon, who was unarmed.”

After the officer was acquitted on all charges in March of this year, the Times ran an article by Adeel Hassan on the verdict.

Here’s what you would learn from the Times:

  • Antwon was unarmed.
  • Antwon “was in his high school’s honors program.”
  • Antwon “played basketball and the saxophone.”
  • Antwon “volunteered for a local charity.”
  • In 2016, Antwon wrote a poem titled, “I Am Not What You Think!” which included these lines:

I see mothers bury their sons
I want my Mom to never feel that pain.

  • A policeman stopped the gold Chevy Cruze Antwon “was riding in” because it “matched the description” of a car “involved” in a drive-by shooting minutes earlier.
  • The jury consisted of nine whites and three African Americans.

If you read the Times piece, all you would know is that an honor student who loved his mom ... was KILLED for the crime of riding in a car similar to one that had just been used in a crime.

Wow. Just wow.

Here are some of the facts the Times left out:

Race-denialism is all over the Western world—the notion that race itself is a sort of optical illusion; that different races can, after a bit of social engineering, be brought to present the same statistical profiles on all traits; that when they present different profiles the only possible explanation is malice on the part of white people; these are the great dogmas of our age [Antiracism, Our Flawed New Religion, by John McWhorter, Daily Beast, March 14,2017 ] carved on stone slabs and worshipfully preserved in the temples of our culture.

Guns are hard to get in Britain (although not that hard). So the more commonplace types of lethal interpersonal violence—notably underclass gang warfare—are stabbings with knives.

Where the soundtrack to a warm night in Chicago, Baltimore, or Detroit features gunshots, the corresponding audio for London, Birmingham, or Manchester is of metal blades penetrating human flesh.

This is quite a new thing. Yes, yes, I know about Jack the Ripper. Statistically, though—culturally—knife crime has not been a British thing.

See, earlier Google Blacklist Revealed—Christians, Conservatives AND VDARE.com Targeted

I learned last week from a Silicon Valley whistleblower, who spoke with the intrepid investigative team at Project Veritas, that my namesake news and opinion website is on a Google blacklist.

Thank goodness the Big Tech giant hasn't taken over the newspaper syndication business yet. Twenty years of column writing have allowed me to break news and disseminate my opinions without the tyranny of social justice algorithms downgrading or whitewashing my words. But given the toxic metastasis of social media in every aspect of our lives, especially for those who make their living exercising the First Amendment, it may only be a matter of time before this column somehow falls prey to the Google Ministry of Truth, too.

Armed with internal memos and emails, former Google software engineer Zachary Vorhies exposed how MichelleMalkin.com (online since 1999) was placed on a news blacklist banning my content from appearing on newsfeeds accessed through Android Google products. I do not advocate violence, publish porn or indulge in vulgarity or profanity (other than my occasional references to Beltway crapweasels). But I triggered the Google Social Credit System and there's no going back.

James Fulford writes: The proposal to buy Greenland, mooted about by America's  real estate mogul President, reminds us that territories do change hands, and for money. This article, headlined “A Modest (?) Proposal”, was first published in Forbes, March 27, 1995, in the context of what Wikipedia calls the “Mexican Peso Crisis”, which President Bill Clinton responded to by sending 20 billion US dollars south as a loan. (Mexico actually paid it back, which no one expected.)

Peter Brimelow's alternative proposal was this article, which we republished this in 2002, Brimelow writing at the time that:  

I enjoyed writing this article, which the former and great Editor of Forbes, James W. Michaels, held out for a cycle while he pondered the possible reaction and which got me on the front page of the Tijuana paper (twice) and denounced on Mexico City radio.  Seven years and maybe 2 million net Mexican immigrants later, I still think—why not? Could it be worse than the current situation? Ironically, given the penultimate paragraph, it's now Mexico that seeks to micromanage U.S. immigration and other policies.

All numbers are much bigger now, and Mexico’s meddling in US politics continues. We are still, as Peter Brimelow wrote in 1995, “getting the Mexicans”, and Baja is still a “real estate developer’s dream”.

WHILE WAVING FAREWELL to $20 billion of U.S. taxpayers' money as it starts its perilous trip South of the Border under the terms of the Clinton Administration's Mexican peso bail-out, we can't help pondering this Modest Proposal:

Wouldn't it be simpler to go back to one of the early versions of the 1853 Gadsden Purchase—and just buy Baja California? 

James Gadsden was sent to Mexico by President Franklin Pierce, charged with buying enough land for a transcontinental railroad route around the Rockies. But American and Mexican negotiators also discussed more sweeping alternatives that suggest Baja California was then valued at around $10 million.

0000whynotbaja

That $10 million adds up to about $180 million in today's purchasing power. And it represented a proportion of U.S. 1853 GDP that by a happy coincidence is now equivalent to . . . $23 billion!
