1-15-2016Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem Dante Acosta gets caught lying for Rep. Steve KnightFriends,Welcome to the 2016 election year. Presidential election years are a time when much of the public starts paying attention, and actually has some influence over the decisions that will be made in Washington over the next few years.This year will be a journey for us, as we engage our elected officials and promote our agenda; which is the hiring of American workers and to seek to influence elected officials to respect and uphold our immigration laws.As we engage those who have been elected to represent us, we will chronicle our observations and our experiences. Every office visit we make is an adventure, we never know what will happen, but quite often we learn a great deal. Sometimes we make scheduled visits, and sometimes we make unscheduled visits,and whatever our activity we will document for you what we see and learn. For those that can join us, thank you, for those that can’t we will show you everything that we see.First, I would like to introduce who we are. Look at the photo below, can you pinpoint the type of people that we are? We are Moms, and Dads, Grandparents, and friends, and neighbors. Our ranks change with every meeting, but our motivation is always to stop the out of control immigration policies that are depressing American wages, and causing chaos in our communities.We decided to start the year off by delivering the Numbers USA immigration reduction grade card to California Republican Rep. Steve Knight.Rep. Steve Knight has had a rough first year, It seems he has some anger issues, and early on shot his mouth off while being filmed and the video tape of it made worldwide headlines. (Boy do they hate those video cameras). One obvious recommendation to Rep. Knight would be to not make threats to Constituents and voters while several cameras are video taping you.Steve Knight volunteered to take the Numbers USA survey weeks before the Nov. 2014 election, specifically to improve his Numbers USA ratings and did in fact improve his ratings by represented himself as a strong champion of opposition to amnesty for illegal aliens and limiting foreign worker importation on the survey. He started off with an A and now after finishing his first year, he’s down to a D+.In hindsight it seems to me that Knight said what he needed to say to get elected, then quickly ditched the promises that he made.I know… typical.Nevertheless, we delivered his grade card, from the organization that he sought out just one year ago to give him the credentials he needed to cross the finish line.As I previously mentioned every office visit we make is an adventure, we never know what we will see. Most of the public has no idea what goes on in these offices. Sometimes everything is fine, sometimes we see transvestite parties going on (I’m not joking).By the way I highly recommend impromptu visits,At Rep. Knight’s office we saw hostility, They didn’t like the unscheduled visit, and they liked the video cameras even less, I wonder why?The first striking thing that we witnessed was the employee that we met. I thought I recognized him, it was none other than my Santa Clarita Councilman who is also the Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem; Dante Acosta.Apparently, and according to Dante Acosta our Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem, is now also running the Santa Clarita office of Rep. Steve Knight. (His business card identified the Mayor Pro Tem as Rep. Knights field representative).:We wouldn’t have known that if we didn’t stop by.Then I remembered that Dante Acosta ran unsuccessfully for Congress as a Republican candidate in the 25th district a few election cycles ago, and challenged then sitting Congressmen Buck McKeon. Buck McKeon was at one time a stellar champion against amnesty for illegal aliens, but after 20+ years in Congress he was getting very wobbly on the issue, which was sad. (I would like to mention that we made many unscheduled visits to McKeon’s office and we were always met graciously).I don’t know what motivated Acosta to run against McKeon, but Acosta advertised himself as a Tea Party challenger. Sadly this seems to me to be yet another example of a“Tea Party Conservative” that turns on the base once they get in office and gets a taste of the establishment gravy train (Think Marco Rubio).Please watch the first video and note how Acosta says to us that he never cancels an appointment. and will meet with the gathered voters an hour and a half later ( once the cameras and signs are discarded).
Link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfz06-fU0rwNow observe the second video after we left the meeting, the security guard comments to us that Knight’s office has instructed him to deny us access to the building if we try and re-enter.Link:And there you go, Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem, and former Republican Congressional candidate Dante Acosta gets caught lying.And they wonder why we insist on bringing video cameras.Friends, the election year is just beginning. Please join us on our adventures in person, if you want to see what’s going on with your own eyes. If you can’t, no problem, sit back and relax, and we’ll show you everything we see and learn.Until next time.Greg Aprahamian

San Bernardino Diocese 10th Annual Migration & Refugee Mass
Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe – Coachella, CA 1/10/16 – Report by Robin Hvidston
Despite the terrorist attack in San Bernardino on December 2, 2015, the San Bernardino Diocese Migration/Syrian Refugee Mass called upon Southern California to welcome all migrants and refugees.
Of note, a Syrian refugee was among the Islamic terrorists who attacked the city of Paris.
A HELP AMERICANS FIRST rally was staged in front of the church and 6 of the group attended the mass to observe and report. U.S. taxpayers pay billions of dollars to the Catholic Church in order to fund the Catholic Charities refugee resettlement programs and “immigration” services.
Raul Rodriguez, of America First Latinos, displayed the above sign. One parishioner in particular, among others, followed Raul Rodriguez, as he held his sign, and continually interfered with his holding of the sign. The parishioner threatened repeatedly that officers would remove him and his group, but Raul maintained his composure and confidently displayed the HELP AMERICANS FIRST sign – to send a message to Cardinal Mahony and Bishop Gerald Barnes. Church officials called a sheriff’s deputy on scene. When the church officials realized the sheriff’s deputy was NOT going to remove the group, toward the end of the mass, one of the church officials approached the harassing parishioner and told him to leave Raul alone. The parishioner, finally, moved to another area.
PRO ILLEGAL GROUPS @ MIGRANT & REFUGEE MASS
The open borders group COUNCIL OF MEXICAN FEDERATIONS COFEM was at the mass.
Pro illegal ICE OUT OF L.A. members were at the mass. https://www.facebook.com/iceoutofla/?fref=ts They approached and harassed the HELP AMERICAS FIRST assemblage.
CARDINAL & FIVE BISHOPS OFFICIATED
FIVE BISHOPS AND CARDINAL ROGER MAHONY OFFICIATED AT THE MIGRANT/REFUGEE MASS
Bishop Gerald Barnes was the chief celebrant of the Mass, joined by Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus Rutilio del Riego along with Cardinal Roger Mahony, Auxiliary Bishop David G. O’Connell and Auxiliary Bishop Alexander Salazar from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. http://www.sbdiocese.org/bishops/
OFFICERS CALLED ON SCENE
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department was called by the church officials because of the protesters, according to the deputy in the photo above. He checked in with rally line, and then he vacated the premises.
During the mass, various church officials asked the group to leave the mass and threatened to have law enforcement remove them.
However, the female sheriff’s deputy who was called on scene, continually, explained that there was no cause to remove the group. After the mass, she said she was there to protect the Help Americans First group and to keep the peace.

Immigration: Kate's Law
NUMBER: SJR 17 INTRODUCED BILL TEXT INTRODUCED BY Senators Morrell and Nielsen (Coauthors: Senators Bates, Berryhill, Fuller, Gaines, Moorlach, Runner, Stone, and Vidak) JULY 16, 2015 Relative to immigration. LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST SJR 17, as introduced, Morrell. Immigration: Kate's Law. This measure would call upon Congress to immediately pass legislation, to be titled "Kate's Law," which would create a mandatory minimum federal sentence of 5 years in a federal penitentiary for an individual that has returned to the United States illegally after having been deported and previously convicted of a felony in the United States. Fiscal committee: no. WHEREAS, One of the primary responsibilities of every elected official in the nation is the public safety and protection of the citizens they represent; and WHEREAS, Americans have always had a passion for fairness and have long recognized the vital part immigrants have played in who we are as a nation; and WHEREAS, America has had a long tradition of welcoming immigrants, and this tradition continues as we invite all who yearn to be free, and with a respect for the rule of law, to join us; and WHEREAS, Immigrants from around the world have made countless contributions in shaping our country into what it is today. As President Lyndon B. Johnson put it, "We flourish because we're fed from many streams."; and WHEREAS, Ours is a nation founded not on a particular race or language, but on a set of economic, political, and moral principles. These principles are, as President Abraham Lincoln said, the "electric cord" that binds us together as one people and one nation; and WHEREAS, The safety of our citizens is enshrined in the United States Constitution, as one of our founding fathers Alexander Hamilton wrote America's safety depends on the energy of a common sentiment, uniformity of principles and habits, and a love of country. These are essential to protecting our civil liberty; and WHEREAS, Almost every elected official in the nation, upon their oath of office, pledges to uphold the United States Constitution and the laws of the jurisdiction to which they are elected; and WHEREAS, We must all work together to ensure that our government respects the limits of its power, that we ourselves maintain a proper respect for our system of laws, and as a part of that system of laws, border security must be a key component in our conversation about immigration; and WHEREAS, Throughout the nation, cities such as the City of San Francisco have created policies and ordinances establishing themselves as "sanctuary cities" in an attempt to shelter undocumented immigrants and usurping the rule of law, in direct conflict with elected officials' oaths of office; and WHEREAS, These sanctuary cities have refused to enforce the laws of the United States government when, through direct or indirect action, they harbor individuals who have been deported numerous times after committing many crimes, including serious felonies; and WHEREAS, Harboring violent criminals protected by the policies of sanctuary cities has contributed to the problem of many citizens of the United States suffering great bodily harm, including death; and WHEREAS, The most recent tragedy, the senseless killing of Kathryn (Kate) Steinle on July 1, 2015, by an undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times, convicted of seven felonies, and who had been given safe harbor by the city law enforcement of the City of San Francisco, has brought this issue to the forefront of the national debate; and WHEREAS, Those city officials directly ignored a detainer request by the federal government to detain and return the prisoner for timely deportation; and WHEREAS, By ignoring the federal government, their constitutional duties, and their sworn responsibilities to protect the citizens of the State of California and the nation, those elected officials have subjected their citizens to preventable violent crimes; and WHEREAS, Some of the strongest national advocates of immigrant rights, such as United States Senator Dianne Feinstein, have criticized the sanctuary cities and specifically the City of San Francisco for not properly working with the federal government to ensure that convicted felons who are in the country illegally are deported in a timely fashion; and WHEREAS, It is clear that only the federal government has the power and tools to secure the border and protect our citizens from the actions of elected officials who refuse to uphold the United States Constitution and federal law and who refuse to cooperate with federal officials when it comes to the deportation of undocumented immigrants with felony criminal records; now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and the Assembly of the State of California, jointly, That the Legislature calls upon Congress, as a national response to the tragic death of Kathryn (Kate) Steinle, to immediately pass legislation, to be titled "Kate's Law," which would create a mandatory minimum federal sentence of five years in a federal penitentiary for an individual that has returned to the United States illegally after having been deported and previously convicted of a felony in the United States; and be it further Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate transmit copies of this resolution to the President and Vice President of the United States, to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, to the Majority Leader of the Senate, to each Senator and Representative from California in the Congress of the United States, and to the author for appropriate distribution.
