Charges are filed in the kicking death of a Coweta toddler.

BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5101980134736576722MichaelHernandez was in a Wagoner County district court Wednesday, facingfirst degree murder charges. He’s accused of kicking his girlfriend’s2-year-old son to death.

A judge denied Hernandez bond,but the victim’s family is concerned his immigration status could change that, because he’s here illegally from Mexico.

The News On6’s Ashli Sims reports the victim’s grandmother says she’s worried hemight be sent back to Mexico before justice can be served.

Kelynn Byrd’s grandmother says burying her 2-year-old grandson was the hardest thing she ever had to do.

“He is, he’s very beautiful and he was so sweet,” said Kelynn’s grandmother Michelle Ebel.

The toddler’s life was cut short when he died from blunt chest and abdominal trauma.
Police say his mother’s boyfriend, Michael Hernandez, was the only one home at the time of the boy’s injury.
And they say Hernandez confessed to repeatedly kicking Kelynn in the chest.

“Whatever kind of anger that can lead up to someone doing that to a 2-and-a-half-year-old boy is just beyond me,” said Ebel.

Hernandezis charged with first degree murder and is now behind bars in theWagoner County jail. The judge in the case contacted the Mexicanconsulate, because Hernandez is a Mexican citizen, here illegally.Kelynn’s family is afraid that Hernandez could be sent back to Mexicobefore the American legal system can run its course.

A spokesperson from the Wagoner County district attorney’s office told The News On 6 they would fight any extradition or deportation. He saysthey plan on proceeding to a conviction, and if Hernandez is convicted they intend for him to serve his sentence in Oklahoma.

U.S.Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, confirms that illegal immigrants would go through the same criminal justice process as anyoneelse.

ICE says they do flag illegal immigrants in statecustody, so if they’re eligible for bond, they’re released into ICE custody instead of back into the community. ICE also added if Hernandez was tried and convicted for the murder of Kelynn Byrd he would serve his sentence first, and then be deported back to Mexico.

Michael Hernandez will be back in court next month for a preliminary hearing.

Is Your Church a Secret Sanctuary?

23 08 2007

 Cross Posted from   Faultline USA

Disclaimer: This article does not discount the faith of those true pacifists who have plumbed the depths of their Christian conscience and ardently believe that there is no such thing as a just war, or that no person should ever be turned away regardless of individual circumstances.

The growth of leftist Christianity within Catholicism, Mainline Protestantism, and even among Evangelical Christians, is a frightening phenomena that has received scant attention. Last week’s news of the arrest and deportation of the Sanctuary movement’s spokesperson, Elvira Arellano, highlights not only the strength of the left within urban churches, but Marxist Christianity (or Liberation Theology) is a fast-growing evolution of heretical Christianity effecting every little congregation is the U.S.

Elvira Arellano became the face behind the nation’s immigration debate when she sought refuge from immigration authorities in a Chicago church a year ago.
U.S. immigration officials had ordered her deportation for working at O’Hare International Airport using a false Social Security number.
But Arellano holed up for a year in the Chicago sanctuary so she wouldn’t be separated from her 8-year-old U.S. citizen son.

Many traditional American’s have failed to realize the actual links between today’s political movements and our churches. Many of these links come through denominational sponsored charitable networks and coalitions such as the National Council of Churches.

The National Council of Churches Supports the U.N. . . .It’s not as simple as the NCC agreeing with your philosophy…it’s the matter of a percentage of the funds you give to your church being sent to the headquarters of your denomination and from there, likely, a donation made to the NCC. These figures are difficult to confirm, but the National Council of Churches must be funded in some manner. On the positive side, reports that donations from mainstream churches have significantly declined, but have been replaced with funds from political-action groups – and numerous qualify as “far-left” activism.

Some political movements have made genuine progress for humanity in this country. One example comes from the Black church in America. There is no doubt that the civil rights movement would have gone nowhere if it were not for the political activism within the Black churches in America. The strength of the Black churches in America is evidenced by the fact that until recently almost every Black politician who managed to gain national recognition had a Rev. next to his/her name.

It would be a grave mistake to discount the growing political activism and influence the leftist church is exerting on the questions of warfare and of immigration. The New Sanctuary movement is already becoming entrenched within many Christian denominations. This is an excerpt from their web page:

The New Sanctuary Movement is a coalition of interfaith religious leaders and participating congregations, called by our faith to respond actively and publicly to the suffering of our immigrant brothers and sisters residing in the United States. . . .

Called by faith to respond . . .

Unfortunately, there are many wolves in sheep’s clothing who masquerade as Christians within denominational leadership, and these Marxists have found the key to manipulating the church faithful into funding those groups that foster attacks on the sovereignty of these United States.

The left is gaining converts daily by an appeal to a false Christian guilt that would equate law-breakers who leave their country to improve their economic condition with slavery or with political refugees who are facing torture, death, or genocide within their home nations. Here’s an example of the sweetly twisted rhetoric:

The Gospel message calls us to welcome the stranger and to stand in solidarity with the least of these,” said Chett Pritchett, Wesley Theological Seminary student. “It’s not a political issue, it is a Christian issue.” . . .

Make no mistake. This IS a political issue!!!

Nowhere do any of these open border Marxist activists mention our Christian duty to protect, to defend, or to preserve our nation against an invasion of people that come here illegally flaunting our laws with no intention of assimilation and who would destroy the very fabric of our nation. No where do these open border activists mention that it is every Christian’s duty to protect the future of their country for their children. Nowhere do these leftists mention the long-standing traditional Christian understanding of just warfare as they sabotage the war in Iraq.

How do the leftist Christians manage to out trump years of Christian tradition? The first step (begun many years ago) is to promote the “social gospel” which emphasizes social justice and at the same time denigrates individualism. Christians are urged to think with a group mind in terms of “community” rather than individual moral choice or even individual salvation. Jesus is portrayed as a revolutionary freedom-fighter. Aggression against the enemy is only fostered if it is the undefined “oppressed people” seeking justice against any form of established government anywhere. It is a revolutionary gospel that hides its true objectives from the church faithful and couches its opposition to Christian tradition in the gentlest religious imagery. Popular in Latin America, Liberation Theology foments world-wide revolutions with the final objective – world-wide Marxist Christianity.

Independent congregations are not as at risk of succumbing to the New Sanctuary Movement as are the denominations. If you are a member of an old venerable Christian denomination the odds are about 99.9% that the movement for sanctuary is well under the control of the growing number of leftist leaders within your denomination’s headquarters and, of course, within the hallowed halls of university seminaries.

Here is a partial list of participating denominations from the New Sanctuary Movement’s web page:

Denominational/Interdenominational National Leadership Present: Unitarian Universalist, United Church of Christ, Episcopal, United Methodist, Union of Reform Judaism, Interfaith Worker Justice. Additional religious traditions: Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian, American Friends Service Committee, Evangelical Christian, Muslim, Sikh

The Virtue of War: Reclaiming the Classic Christian Traditions East & West

Here’s an excerpt from a review:

The preeminence of pacifism within the Church as the proper reaction to military conflict is so established within contemporary Christianity that it is sometimes forgotten that this has not been the historic Christian position. Orthodox theologians Alexander F. C. Webster and Darrell Cole remind us of this fact in The Virtue of War, an important apologia for the Christian tradition of the just war. . . The most renowned figures in both Catholicism (St. Ambrose, St. Augustine of Hippo, St Thomas Aquinas) and Protestantism (Martin Luther, John Calvin) all supported the idea of the just war although their presentations and arguments may have varied in approach. . .

Here’s an excerpt from another review of the above book by James V. Schall, S.J. , a professor in the government department at Georgetown University. His latest book is “Roman Catholic Political Philosophy” (Lexington).

The occasion of this book is, no doubt, the aftermath of September 11 and the need to see the proportions of a new kind of war in our time, a new kind that is a very old kind. With the paradox that “war is a virtue” or a “positive good,” the authors force us to look again at actions designed to face evils that few are willing to meet because they cannot understand how doing anything effective can be just. This book is another way of looking at the problem, an ancient way, as it turns out.

It should be noted that defending our country against those who would destroy it (from within or without) falls within the theology of Just Warfare!

Some short excerpts from related articles worth reading:

The Battle for American Unity: . . In the last century, many Christian churches began to focus on inclusiveness and Christian unity became the primary core value. Divisive moral issues were ignored or downplayed. Individual behaviors were never judged. Emphasis was always placed on God’s forgiving love rather than on individual accountability to God.

Your Mainline Christmas Sermon: . . . Just as few Americans are very much aware of the growing influence of Islamofascism on American politics, even fewer Americans are aware of the Marxist trends (born of Liberation Theology) that are fast overcoming mainline denominations and informing new ministers in mainline Protestantism! Catholics and Evangelicals are not immune to this growing trend either.

United Nations Entrenched Within Most Christian Denominations: . . There are over 100,000 local congregations and 45 million Christians supporting the above goals – and most of these Christians don’t even know what they are supporting or that much of their money is going to tax-exempt leftist foundations!!!

Obama’s Liberation Theology Church “. . .The black Christ is he who threatens the structure of evil as seen in white society, rebelling against it, thereby becoming the embodiment of what the black community knows that it must become. . .”

What other’s are saying:

The New Sanctuary Movement is a religious and political network of radical left congregations who claim America’s immigration laws are immoral and — like slavery and Jim Crow laws — should be repealed. . .

Read Whom would Jesus bomb? By Roger W. Gardner

Although I love this very accurate quote from the Vanishing American, I completely disagree with the conclusion .

Certainly the liberalized caricature of Christianity, which is only a shadow of the real Christianity in actual fact, is a religion which would command the West to sacrifice itself for the sake of the ‘wretched of the earth.’ This version of Christianity preaches guilt for our success and material prosperity, and guilt-trips us into giving away what we have to the victims, and sharing all our possessions with them, including our country. Unfortunately this version of Christianity is growing in numbers of adherents; many formerly conservative denominations and churches are being pulled into the vortex of leftist Christianity by liberal clerics and preachers masquerading as traditional Christians, and many formerly conservative Christians are being led by these pied pipers where they would not formerly have gone, into the globalist, universalist system.

Another Example of Why We Need Border Enforcement

23 08 2007

Cross posted from   The Virtuous Republic 

We hear that patrolling the border hurts illegal immigrants who only want to better their lives. We hear that building a border fence will hurt wildlife, divide communities along the border, and destroy archaeological sites. Yet, none of these groups that are for open borders will admit that there is a problem, a problem of crime and criminals entering from Mexico into the United States of America.

On August 21, Border Patrol agents in Arizona had a good day. At the Naco station, they stopped a man from illegally crossing the border. During processing they found, “he had been convicted of having sex with a minor and rape by force or fear in 2003 in San Bernardino County….” Good job guys, you prevented this sexually perverted felon from committing more crimes in the United States.

A little further along the border on the same day, agents captured an SUV loaded with 1,500 pounds of marijuana.

To all those against the border fence, I say that protecting Americans from criminals and drug traffickers trumps the rights of wildlife. Guarding the border does and can work. It just takes a commitment from Washington, which of course requires that ordinary Americans keep up the pressure on their representatives.

Geraldo Rivera, new spokesman for criminal illegal aliens

23 08 2007

Cross posted from    Right Truth

Today Geraldo took the leader of Mothers Against Illegal Aliens on Fox on Your World With Neil Cavuto. Geraldo also took on Tom Tancredo on Hannity and Colmes. I guess he is Fox’s token ‘balanced’ commenter who is FOR criminal illegal aliens inside the United States.

It appears that Geraldo Rivera’s support of criminal illegal aliens is nothing new. Last year he was advocating for Elvira Arellano who took refuge in a Chicago church and was deported this week to Mexico. Geraldo said:

“Isn’t it impossible almost, not to be sympathetic to this mom and her son?” and “Pat isn’t it a kind of bait and switch? We lure the illegals here with the promise of work and now we’re telling them, either leave or be arrested?” [snip]Rivera then went further saying that some compare her “to Rosa Parks and other icons of the civil rights movement.NewsBusters

On the O’Reilly Factor, talking about “Illegal alien Jose Carranza from Peru, who stands accused of raping a five- year-old girl, assaulting some other people, and now murdering the three young people” , Geraldo said, “The last thing that they should be concerned about is the immigration status.” O’Reilly responds:

O’REILLY: Look, these three would be alive. The two in Virginia city — Virginia Beach would be alive if the local authorities cooperated with Homeland Security and reported criminal aliens to ICE. You’ve got to get behind that, Geraldo. That has to happen or we’re going to have more dead people. (Fox)

Illegal charged with kidnapping and attempted sexual assualt of 5 & 6 year old girls

23 08 2007

August 22nd, 2007 by Sam Pierce

Hat tip to Dubya at Free Republic.

41 year old Ramon Zolora-Solano, an illegal immigrant told two little girls ( ages 5 & 6) who were playing outside in Gastonia, North Carolina to come to his apartment. When the girls said no, he apparently hit them and pulled them by their hair to his apartment. The parents realized they were missing and found them in the apartment. Zolora-Solano had his pants open and one of the girls’ dresses pulled up.

Would amnesty have prevented this? Did this happen because this scared man was forced to live in “the shadows?” Would Geraldo Rivera give this scum-bag a pass because he just wants to live here and work hard?

The immigration reform shamnesty opened the eyes of many Americans to the magnitude of the illegal alien crisis we face. This situation will not be improved by pampering people like Zolora-Solano. Just like the execution style murders in Newark, this attack could have been prevented, for if the illegal alien is not allowed to be in our country he cannot attack our children. Geraldo would say this crime has nothing to do with illegal immigration. I would reiterate that it could not have happen if this illegal immigrant hadn’t been in our country!

This is our country and we have a reasonable right to expect a certain level of safety from foreign criminals while we are on our own soil. We need leadership that is indeed serious about securing our borders, not just paying lip service to a popular issue. We need to urge our government officials to build the damn fence and in November of 2008 we need to elect the man who wrote the law for the fence to be our president.
