AP Poll: Nearly 90% Believe Illegal Immigration Serious Problem; Majority Want Expedited Deportations

Originally posted on Whiskey Tango Foxtrot:

Nearly nine in ten Americans feel that illegal immigration is a serious problem facing the country, and a majority want illegal immigrants to be deported more quickly, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll.

The survey found that 67% of respondents felt that illegal immigration was an “extremely” serious or “very serious” problem. Another 22% felt it was a “somewhat serious” problem, while 10% said it was “not too/at all serious.”

There have been nearly 60,000 illegal immigrants who have been apprehended since October of last year, and federal officials expect at least 150,000 more will be next year. The number of illegal immigrant juveniles who have been caught drastically spiked after President Barack Obama enacted his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012 that gave temporary amnesty to some DREAMers. In the poll, 68% disapprove of Obama’s handling of illegal immigration while only 31% approve.

Lois Lerner 2Former senior IRS official Lois Lerner had deeply held political biases while she was in a position of authority, according to Republican lawmakers who unveiled emails on Wednesday showing her referring to conservatives as ‘crazies’ and ‘assholes.’

Michigan Rep. Dave Camp, who chairs the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder to demand what he called ‘a serious investigation’ – something he said has been lacking.

Camp wants Holder to appoint an outside special counsel to probe the culture of the IRS and explain why hundreds of conservative groups were subjected to intrusive questioning and years-long delays when they applied for nonprofit tax benefits – steps that were not taken against liberal organizations.

Judge Rejects Police Unions’ Challenge Against Stop-And-Frisk Ruling

Originally posted on CBS New York:

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police unions lost their bid Wednesday to challenge a ruling concluding that the city’s stop-and-frisk tactics are sometimes discriminatory — moving the city a step closer toward changing the program.

The stop, question and frisk program has drawn criticism for its effect on minorities, but has also won praise for its role in reducing crime.

In a written ruling, U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres said five police unions representing the majority of the NYPD’s 35,000 employees lacked legal standing to pick up where the city left off when it decided to settle the case last year rather than pursue an appeal.

The unions said a finding of discrimination against minorities within the stop-and-frisk program had damaged the reputations of the nation’s largest police force.

But Torres said unions’ claims rested “on the flawed assumption that anonymous officers who have not taken part in this litigation have…

The down side of the death penalty.

Federal review stalled after finding forensic errors by FBI lab unit spanned two decades:

These unfortunate cases are the down side of the death penalty.

It appears that an overzealous government agency the FBI, in an effort to solve criminal case quickly, they used a technology “DNA hair testing” that was not yet perfected at the time, resulting in the conviction, executions and deaths of scores of inmates.

The potentially wrong verdicts include as many as 2,600 convictions and 45 death-row cases from the 1980s and 1990s where the FBI used hair samples to test DNA before it was fully developed as a crime solving tool.

U.S. officials began the inquiry after The Washington Post reported two years ago that flawed forensic evidence involving microscopic hair matches might have led to the convictions of hundreds of potentially innocent people. Most of those defendants never were told of the…
