Editorial Note – What is the mission of the Department of Justice? To whom are they beholding?
To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.
In a fair reading of the last half, of the last line, one may conclude that the following groups received grants from the DoJ to “ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all AMERICANS.” Read the following and ask yourself, what is the definition of Americans? SUA reads this clearly; citizens of the United States of America. Not other Americans, say from South America or Central America, or even Canada which like us, is in North America. The Mission Statement should only mean citizens. So why then is DoJ sending funds to such organizations where non-citizens are to benefit?
Further, where in that statement above does it say anything about allowing a foreign sovereign state to be part of a suit against a sovereign state of our union? (Mexico) Also, at what point does the suit against Arizona, and the other against Alabama fall into the mission of DoJ?
Once again, extra-constitutional activity is expended where they have no business applying resources, yet when a group who blatantly broke election laws; The New Black Panther Party, does the DoJ look the other way? DoJ fails American citizens, yet promotes non-citizen aliens.
Once again, the Obama administration is using extra-constitutional ploys to meet ideological ideas that are not in the law, nor would they be able to pass such legislation. So, when you cannot get the system to work the way you want, you act by administrative fiat!
Millions in Political DOJ Grants To Help Illegal Immigrants
The Obama Justice Department has recently awarded millions of dollars in politically-motivated grants with a chunk of the money going to community groups that help illegal immigrants, a Judicial Watch investigation has found.
“Nonprofits” that share the administration’s anti-capital punishment stance also got quite a bit of money from the Department of Justice (DOJ), according to grant announcements posted on the government’s spending website and analyzed in the course of JW’s probe. In fact, just last month the DOJ gave the Innocence Project of Texas its first federal grant, a whopping quarter of a million dollars. The group has worked endlessly to abolish the death penalty in the Lone Star State.
The Innocence Project of Florida, which strives to do the same in that state, has received two generous DOJ grants under President Obama in the last few years, for $195,025 in late 2009 and $297,000 in 2010. The Tallahassee-based group’s first allotment went to a wrongful prosecution review project. The second went to a backlog reduction program and to review wrongful convictions in Florida.
Detained Aliens Orientation Program
Outrageous as those may seem, the federal agency charged with enforcing the law and defending the nation’s interests dedicated even more taxpayer money to help illegal aliens in the last few months, JW found. Just last month the New York-based Vera Institute of Justice got nearly $3 million for a “legal orientation program” for detained aliens. The group, which gets significant funding from leftwing billionaire George Soros, had previously received millions of dollars in federal contracts in the last several years.
Other open borders groups also got money from the DOJ, including the California-based National Immigration Law Center, which is dedicated to fighting “draconian restrictions on immigrants’ rights” and boasts about having a “strong presence in Washington D.C.” The DOJ gave it $66,000 this year for “immigration-related employment discrimination public education.” Last spring the group got a similar DOJ grant for $65,453.
Earlier this year another Golden State group, the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation, got its first federal grant for $44,000, compliments of the DOJ. The money went to the group’s “Tenemos Derechos” (we have rights) program for immigrant communities and will be applied to “education and enforcement of the antidiscrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationalization Act,” according to the grant announcement dug up during JW’s analysis.
