ANAHEIM - Nativo Lopez, National Co-Director of Hermandad Mexicana National, told the Anaheim City Council Tuesday evening that it must remove Immigration and Naturalization Service officers from the Anaheim City Jail or it will take further action. The INS officers have been at the jail to screen for illegal aliens since 1995 under a law passed almost unanimously by the Congress. "We formally request that you put an end to the present policy which permits local police department cooperation with the INS at the Anaheim detention facility," Lopez said. "We believe a reasonable timeline to wind down the present operation would be thirty days. In the meantime it is our expectation that no more individuals be turned over to the INS for interrogation."


    Lopez said that the Mexican/Latino community would take further action if their demands are not met. "It is only right that we inform you of our intention to pursue our petition to its ultimate consequence. We will return within thirty days. We are hopeful that you will heed our counsel, accept our petition and act accordingly. It is our sincere desire to not pursue superior levels of action to gain your attention, respect and corresponding response. We formally request that this item be placed on the agenda for the city council meeting of March 20th of this year."


    Hermandad Mexicana Nacional, or the Mexican brotherhood, has been at the forefront of the Mexican Reconquista movement for years, fighting at every step for the rights of Mexicans to invade the United States with impunity. They were involved in the vote fraud scandal that surrounded the Dornan/Sanchez congressional race of 1996. Hermandad relies on taxpayer funds to support its revolutionary activities.

    Prior to the city council meeting, Lopez spoke for about thirty minutes in Spanish to a crowd of more than 100 Mexicans/Latinos who had been brought to the meeting to attempt to intimidate the council, a common practice of Mexican Reconquistas. Lopez told them that they had a right to be in America because they were the original inhabitants.


    Glenn Spencer of American Patrol also addressed the city council. He was told to limit his remarks to three minutes, even though Nativo Lopez spoke for ten minutes


    Some argue that our local police have no role in immigration law enforcement. Not so. In 1994, by an overwhelming majority, the people of California passed Proposition 187 which created California Penal Code 834 (b). This penal code section lays out in detail exactly how local law enforcement must work hand-in-hand with the Immigration & Naturalization Service to enforce immigration laws.

    Let me read a couple of paragraphs from this law.

    834b. (a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is suspected of being present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.

    (c) Any legislative, administrative, or other action by a city, county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity with jurisdictional boundaries, or by a law enforcement agency, to prevent or limit the cooperation required by subdivision (a) is expressly prohibited.

    In the 1998 "Vasquez" case (D.C. No. 98-CR-45-R), the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a lower court decision that there was a "preexisting general authority of state or local police officers to investigate and make arrests for violations of federal law, including immigration laws."

    Under Section 133 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, Congress sought to formalize the cooperation between local law enforcement and the Immigration and Naturalization Service to include transporting illegal aliens. Only a recalcitrant Attorney General Janet Reno who resisted the publication of regulations to allow implementation kept Americans from taking advantage of the clear intent of Congress.

    There may be more than 10 million illegal aliens in the United States. Unless we are prepared to suffer the consequences of a permanent proletariat servant underclass (there will be no amnesty) we must use all the resources available under the law to form a more perfect union and insure domestic tranquility by deporting all illegal aliens.
