In the guidance for United States Attorneys and their staff, the Assistant United States Attorneys, the cadre of U.S. Department of Justice employees that prosecute most criminal acts in the Federal court system, the U.S. Attorneys' Manual states clearly that one of the most important considerations for prosecution of a particular case is whether that prosecution will deter future criminal activity by the defendant and others in the future.
Although these principles deal with the specific situations indicated, they should be read in the broader context of the basic responsibilities of Federal attorneys: making certain that the general purposes of the criminal law—assurance of warranted punishment, deterrence of further criminal conduct, protection of the public from dangerous offenders, and rehabilitation of offenders—are adequately met, while making certain also that the rights of individuals are scrupulously protected.
And deterrent effect is what President Donald J. Trump, Attorney General-Designate Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, III, and hopefully DHS Secretary-Designate Kris Kobach, need to use in their first 100 days of the battle to end illegal immigration.
Fortunately, the scofflaws who aid and abet illegal immigration are quite public about their criminal activity. Their strategy is to make their crimes public and hope that they can intimidate The Donald. They are not without foundation in their belief. In the past, the criminals who aid illegal immigration have escaped prosecution under both Republican and Democrat administrations.
Public defiance of the immigration laws presents serious risks for the perpetrators. Even now many who publicly advocate defiance of Federal law, quietly hedge their defiance with references to court orders and legal processes. Michael Roth, President of Wesleyan University is an example of that; he ostentatiously declared Wesleyan a sanctuary, then backtracked saying that .
Wesleyan’s Mr. Roth said that by “sanctuary,” he means “a lack of cooperation until compelled to cooperate by law, and then you use the courts. We’ll do our best to protect our students.”However, some are not so careful about running afoul of the law, for example Candy Marshall, President, TheDream.US, a criminal organization that assists illegal aliens to remain in the United States by providing money to those illegal aliens to attend post-secondary educational institutions.
From their website:
If You’re A Dreamer, We Can Help You Get The Education You Deserve.Any Assistant U.S. Attorney assigned to prosecute Candy Marshall [Email her] and her co-conspirators would be ecstatic over that statement on TheDream.US website. It is a very public admission to the criminal purpose of the organization and by implication its corporate leadership.
We believe nothing should stand in your way of a college education—not the cost, your immigrant status, or the lack of financial aid. Our scholarships can help you pay for your college education.
Even better, Gaby Pacheco, Director, Scholar Programs And Advocacy, for TheDream.US, went even further to establish the criminal nature of TheDream.US and the goals of the conspiracy:
ARLINGTON, Va.— TheDream.US announced today the opening of applications for two scholarship programs available for DREAMers in need of financial assistance for college. In the wake of the presidential election of Donald Trump, the organization asserted that undocumented immigrant youth and their families need support more than ever before.
“We remain steadfast in our belief that nothing should stand in the way of a DREAMer getting a college education—not the cost, immigration status or the lack of financial aid,” said Candy Marshall, president of TheDream.US.
The scholarships help young immigrants attend both four-year colleges and two-year community colleges. In addition, they open opportunities for those whose home states bar them from attending state schools by charging out-of-state tuition or refusing to admit them to top universities...
While the DACA program may be at risk under Trump’s administration, TheDREAM.US is moving forward with its programs and hopes to award at least 1,000 scholarships to DREAMers with DACA in spring 2017...
Since launching in 2014, TheDream.US has provided scholarships to over 1,700 students.
[Despite Election Results, Thedream.Us Offers Scholarships For College-Bound Dreamers, by Gaby Pacheco, Press Release, TheDream.US, November 15, 2016]
Even better for a criminal prosecution, TheDream.US is quite open about who is providing the financial backing to this criminal activity, a who's who of the criminal conspiracy known as the Democratic Party:
TheDream.US has received funding from a variety of donors who share the belief that DREAMers deserve the opportunity to get a college education, including former Washington Post chairman Donald Graham and investigative journalist Amanda Bennett (both co-founders), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Pershing Square Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, and Pierre and Pam Omidyar and others.In most criminal cases, the perpetrators want to conceal their criminal activity. Not in this case, and such public defiance of Federal criminal law calls out for a courageous Attorney General to prosecute those openly contemptuous of the law. Such flagrant disregard for the law calls out for a prosecution to deter others from such criminal acts.
And conveniently, the criminals are all rabid opponents of President Trump, so there is no call for moderation. Prosecution will not only help discourage illegal immigration and aiding illegal aliens, it will also break up the mega-rich foundations of the opposition to President Trump and the historic American nation.
Time to make an example of these nation breakers and put down the criminal conspiracy known as the Democratic Party. By criminally charging Marshall, Pacheco, Gates, and Zuckerberg, an example, for deterrent effect, can be made of these prominent criminals that would discourage not only future illegal aliens, but criminal conspiracies to assist illegal aliens. And nothing would do that better than a perp walk for two of the richest men in the nation. Further it would show that no one is above the law, something President-Elect Trump has promised to do.
Prototypical Yuppie Criminal Bill Gates
Badly Dressed Criminal Mark Zuckerberg
As an aside, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is also civilly, as well as criminally liable in this conspiracy, and since it is a regulated charitable organization, it can be disbanded by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and all its assets seized for engaging in activities prohibited to charities. Those monies then revert to the general fund held by the Treasury Department, and can then be used to build the wall with Mexico. The only thing better than forcing Mexico to pay for the wall is using Bill Gates' billions for the wall, and perhaps a yuge "deportation force" as well.
Politically, while it would raise a storm, there is no downside for President Trump. Americans know that the swamp must be drained and that too many in this country are not held to account for their criminal activity. It would be fitting bookend to the prosecution of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
I say to President-Elect Trump, Si Tu Puede! Yes, you can!
