This is called DERELICTION of DUTY
This is the SURRENDER of America’s Sovereignty
It seems that DOD stands for the dereliction of duty, instead of Department Of Defense
While our government openly moves against her people, then don’t do this passively they accuse our hero’s of that which THEY are guilty of:

Mexico starts identifying 72 massacred migrants:
By E. EDUARDO CASTILLO / Associated Press
Heavily guarded mortuary workers have begun identifying 72 migrants massacred near the U.S. border, while human rights advocates are demanding Mexico do more to stop the exploitation and abuse of migrants that they say led to the heinous crime.
Marines are protecting the pink, one-story funeral home where the bodies were taken after being discovered on a ranch Tuesday, bound, blindfolded and slumped against a wall.
Tamaulipas state Assistant Attorney General Jesus de la Garza said Thursday that 15 bodies had been identified: eight from Honduras, four from El Salvador, two from Guatemala and one from Brazil. Diplomats from several of those nations traveled to Mexico to help identify them, and Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission sent investigators to monitor the process.
The government’s chief security spokesman said the migrants were apparently slain because they refused to help a gang smuggle drugs.
“The information we have at this moment is that it was an attempt at forced recruitment,” Alejandro Poire told W radio. “It wasn’t a kidnapping with the intent to get money, but the intention was to hold these people, force them to participate in organized crime — with the terrible outcome that we know.”
The victims of what could be Mexico’s biggest drug-gang massacre were traversing some of the nation’s most dangerous territory, trying to reach Texas. The lone survivor said the assassins identified themselves as Zetas, a drug gang that dominates parts of the northern state of Tamaulipas.
In San Fernando, a crumbling colonial town of about 30,000 on Mexico’s Gulf coast, most people interviewed by The Associated Press were afraid to give their names.
A funeral home employee said the dead were stored in a refrigerated truck in the parking lot, where flies buzzed above white powder spread over bloodstains.
“This is frightening. It’s horrible,” said a tortilla stand worker in the crumbling colonial town of about 30,000 on Gulf coast.
“It smells like death. I vomited,” his friend added.
Rights advocates warn that migrants are increasingly being kidnapped, killed and exploited by gangs as they travel through Mexico toward the United States, and they say Mexican authorities’ indifference is letting the problem escalate.
“We disagree with the government that it is a consequence of battles between criminal groups,” said the Rev. Pedro Pantoja, director of the Casa del Migrante in Saltillo in neighboring Coahuila state. “The permissiveness and complicity of the Mexican state with criminals … is just as much to blame.”
The National Human Rights Commission estimated in a report presented last year that nearly 20,000 migrants are kidnapped each year based on the number of reports it received between September 2008 and February 2009 — numbers the federal government disputes.
Mauricio Farah, who coordinated the report, said goverment corruption is at the heart of migrant abuse in Mexico.
“We are talking about the complicity of several authorities along the migrant route,” Farah told MVS Radio on Thursday. “Forty, 80, 100 migrants inside trucks or on the trains can not pass unnoticed by the authorities … on the contrary what happens is that they are in collusion with drug gangs.”
Commission president Raul Plascencia said Thursday that authorities never responded to its recommendations or demands for greater security for migrants.
“This escalation of the violence … demands results from the government in finding who is responsible,” he said.
In an April report, Amnesty International called the plight of tens of thousands of mainly Central American migrants crossing Mexico for the U.S. a major human rights crisis.
The report said that although the government has made some small improvements, it continues to give the issue low priority, despite the widespread involvement of corrupt police.
Marines discovered the horrific massacre after the survivor, 18-year-old Luis Freddy Lala Pomavilla of Ecuador, staggered wounded to a military checkpoint. He is now recovering from a gunshot to the neck at a hospital.
Lala’s family told Ecuador television Thursday that he left his remote Andean town two months ago in hopes of reaching the U.S.
“I told him not to go, but he went,” one of his brothers, Luis Alfredo Lala told Ecuavisa television from Lala’s home town.
His wife back in Ecuador, Maria Angelica Lala, 17 years old and pregnant, told Teleamazonas her husband paid $15,000 for the smuggler who was supposed to guide him.
That smuggler apparently tried to hide Lala’s fate from his family, calling Wednesday to tell her he had reached Los Angeles. That was the day after Mexican marines raided the ranch and found the slain migrants, 14 of them women.
Drug gangs in Mexico often force migrant smugglers to hand over their charges.
If confirmed as a cartel kidnapping, it would be the most extreme case seen so far and the bloodiest massacre since President Felipe Calderon began a crackdown on drug gangs in late 2006. More than 28,000 people have died in drug-related violence since then.
Calderon condemned the massacre as the work of desperate cartels.
They “are resorting to extortion and kidnappings of migrants for their financing and also for recruitment because they are having a hard time obtaining resources and people,” he said in a statement Wednesday night.
Kidnappings and attacks on government security patrols are rampant in the highways surrounding San Fernando, where armed men claiming to belong to the Zetas roam freely and the police station is pockmarked with bullet holes from a March shooting. Last month, the bodies of 15 people were dumped in the middle of the highway from San Fernando to Matamoros, a city across the border from Brownsville, Texas.
The region is at the end of a traditional migration route for Central and South Americans who travel up the Gulf coast toward the U.S. border. Violence has soared there this year since the Zetas broke with their former allies, the Gulf cartel, sparking a vicious turf war.
Almost 20 migrants staying at a shelter outside Mexico City turned back to their countries after hearing of the killings this week, said employee Hector Lopez, a Nicaraguan who abandoned his own journey three months ago.
“I wanted to go reach the United States but when I saw what the situation was, what was happening to other migrants, I realized things could get worse for me,” he said.
Others at the shelter were stunned by the massacre but undeterred — like 35-year-old Belizean Wilber Cuellar, who said he has been deported six times from the United States and once from Canada, where he worked at a chicken packing plant.
“I’m not afraid. I’m prepared to die,” Cuellar said. “I’m tired of suffering in this world.”

It seems the Democrats/socialists in Washington D.C. are in a full court press to ignore the law they are sworn to uphold and allow illegal aliens free access to and rein of our country.
Now the Houston Chronicle reports the cases of many illegal aliens are being dismissed by the federal government:
The Department of Homeland Security is systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants who have no serious criminal records, according to several sources familiar with the efforts.
Culling the immigration court system dockets of noncriminals started in earnest in Houston about a month ago and has stunned local immigration attorneys, who have reported coming to court anticipating clients’ deportations only to learn that the government was dismissing their cases.
Raed Gonzalez is an immigration attorney and the liaison between the Executive Office for Immigration Review. He is quoted in the article:
Gonzalez said he went into immigration court downtown on Monday and was given a court date in October 2011 for one client. But, he said, the government’s attorney requested the dismissal of that case and those of two more of his clients, and the cases were dispatched by the judge.
The court “was terminating all of the cases that came up,” Gonzalez said. “It was absolutely fantastic.”
“We’re all calling each other saying, ‘Can you believe this?’?” said John Nechman, another Houston immigration attorney, who had two cases dismissed.
Attorney Elizabeth Mendoza Macias, who has practiced in Houston for 17 years, said she had cases for several clients dismissed during the past month and eventually called DHS to find out what was going on. She said she was told by a DHS trial attorney that 2,500 cases were under review in Houston.
“I had five (dismissed) in one week, and two more that I just received,” Mendoza said. “And I am expecting many more, many more, in the next month.”
What effect will this non-enforcement have on the dedicated people in our government who are trying to do their jobs?
Tre Rebsock, the ICE union representative in Houston, said even if the efforts involve only a fraction of the pending immigration cases, “that’s going to make our officers feel even more powerless to enforce the laws.”
If only our government were half as determined and dedicated to enforce the law as they were toignore it, we wouldn’t have much of a problem in this area.
I don’t like to throw around the term “impeachment” lightly because it is a very serious undertaking. However, I’m beginning to think more and more that impeachment may be necessary and appropriate for our elected leaders who refuse–REFUSE–to enforce our nation’s laws, protect our borders and keep the American people safe.
Article II Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution discusses impeachment for ” treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The dictionary defines “treason” first as “the betrayal of a trust.” These officials hold a trust from the American people to keep their oath to uphold the Constitution and the laws of our nation, and they have betrayed it.
According to Wikipedia, “high crimes and misdemeanors,” among other things, “…gives aid or comfort to its enemies, or which injures the country to the profit of an individual or group. In democracies and similar societies it also includes crimes which attempt to alter the outcome of elections.” Someone who illegally invades our country could easily be defined as an enemy, and these officials are giving aid and comfort to them by allowing them unhindered entry and harbor. Many strongly believe the liberals who support this dereliction of duty also stand to profit from their inaction by encouraging a voter constituency that may end up voting for them–voting legally or illegally (what do illegal votes really matter to these liberals when they are already ignoring illegal entry to our country?). They are doing this to alter the outcome of elections.
So you see, impeachment of President Obama and his accomplices in congress for their dereliction of duty (something punishable as a crime in the military) is not such a stretch, is it?
And it’s something we may very well need to pursue next year, regardless of the outcome of the November elections.
