3…………> Gov. Brown’s Obstruction: Cuddling Criminals
White House Remarks On Sanctuary Cities Policies:
Illegal immigration along America’s Southwest border surged 230 percent in April compared to last year, according to a report issued by the Department of Homeland Security earlier this month. That statistic accompanied news that a caravan of about 2,000 migrants from Central America started arriving at a U.S. port of entry in southern California.
Together, these reports reveal the lack of an orderly and fair process to manage the escalating flow of both illegal immigrants and asylum-seekers to the United States. That flawed system creates both a humanitarian and a national security crisis at our border.
Yet America’s immigration challenge does not end at our doorstep. Because of “sanctuary city” jurisdictions—many recently emboldened by new State laws in California—law enforcement officers face dangerous obstacles to protecting our communities from the effects of a broken immigration system.
Under the guise of being pro-immigrant, these jurisdictions privilege a small group of criminals at the expense of the safety and well-being of American citizens, law enforcement, and law-abiding immigrants.
Sanctuary cities are State or local jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with Federal immigration enforcement, often by rejecting “detainer” requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or refusing to tell ICE when criminal aliens are scheduled for release. If a suspected illegal alien commits a crime, ICE will issue a detainer to request that the jurisdiction notify ICE prior to releasing the criminal, that the criminal is held for up to 48 hours after their planned release to allow for questioning and possible removal, and that the jurisdiction safely transfers custody to ICE.
4…………> H2A Visa Fraud: CA
Three Southern California men identified as Jorge Vasquez, 58, of Fontana, the owner of H-2A Placement Services, a farm labor recruiting company based in Rancho Cucamonga; Melquiades Jacinto Lara, 62, of Santa Paula, the owner of J&D Harvesting, which contracted workers to farms in Ventura County; and Ricardo Mendoza Oseguera, 39, of Santa Paula, the owner of Discoteca Mi Pueblito, a music and convenience store in Santa Paula, which redeemed vouchers given to workers for J&D Harvesting after deducting fees from the workers’ pay, were arrested pursuant to a federal grand jury indictment alleging they participated in an immigration fraud scheme that, among other things, illegally charged Mexican nationals thousands of dollars to obtain H-2A work visas and additional money for expenses once they arrived in the United States.
The indictment alleges that Mexican farmworkers were charged illegal fees for transportation, room and board after the company arranging for the workers’ visas promised the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that the workers had not paid and would not have to pay for these expenses. In addition, the indictment alleges that the farmworkers were made to pay fees to obtain their visas, which is prohibited under the H-2A visa program.

Current position long 24100, sell stop 24450 closed for a gain of 350 DIA points, position short at 24450, cover short closed at 24250 for a gain of 200 DIA points.
Current position long DIA at 24250, sell stop was closed at 24250 for a loss of 50 points, and a short position established at 24250, cover short 24200 for a gain of 50 DIA points.
A cash dispersal to AAPL shareowners in the amount of $100 billion dollars sparked a rally, new position long at 24200, stop 24650 for a gain of 450 dollars.
Stock market old timers have said that “you buy the rumor, and sell the news”, and that is exactly what is happening right now, with the news that President Trump is about to start a metal tariff war, slapping 25% surcharge on steel and 10% on aluminum. DIA resistance is in the 27,000 area, with supports at 24135, 21354 and 18900 level, US dollar in a downtrend, resistance at 1.003319 CHF, support at .92 and 0.9: Gold in an uptrend, watch break resistance of 1377 to be taken soon. The massive Fed balance sheet contraction will result in a $600 billion dollars being dumped on the credit markets each quarter, a leftover of the horrendous $4.3 trillion money printing of Obama’s septic tank that will surely exert a severe pressure on stocks and financial assets.
We warned long ago that an organized attempt to remove President Trump from office is underway, and if this activity is not curtailed soon, the market will open on gap below 20,000 with next stop 17300 and 11800 support levels.
Stocks were up 1 to 24715, DJ futures +8, attempt to stage a covering short rally.
Gold down to 1291.7 and USD/CHF at 1.00 despite President Trump setting tariffs on Chinese products. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch sell stop at 24,650.
We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempt to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects. Read “Ziban Must Die” for more details on the coming collision of Trump’s administration with “Deep State” operators funded by the billionaires’ supporters of the New World.
