Since breaking immigration law is a crime, then the Department of Homeland Security which actively undermines those laws, seemingly at every opportunity, should be considered a criminal entity.

DHS honors alien advocacy champion.

Not content to merely subvert long-established immigration laws, DHS shamelessly honors illegal immigration advocates, and at the same time insults citizens. On September 29, the Department of Homeland Security conferred its Outstanding American by Choice initiative to Antonia Hernández, president and CEO of the California Community Foundation (CCF). According to DHS, Hernández “leads the foundation in its mission to lead positive systematic change that strengthens Los Angeles communities.”

The changes that DHS admires include protecting the illegal alien Central American border surgers and lobbying for the Supreme Court’s approval of President Obama‘s unconstitutional executive amnesty. CCF has the deep pockets to carry out its agenda. Even though most Californians have never heard of CCF, the nonprofit ranks in the top 100 foundations as measured by size and giving – an endowment in excess of $1 billion, much of it from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

Although DHS has failed to secure the border or to provide internal enforcement, its website continues to misleadingly state that: “The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face … our goal is clear: keeping America safe.”

In reality, DHS and CCF are on the same page: both want to carry out Obama’s amnesty agenda. Honoring Hernández is more in-your-face proof that, in Obama’s eyes, Americans come last.
