New Plan to House Illegal Immigrants (give me a break.)

New Plan to House Illegal Immigrants...................give me a break.

WASHINGTON (Oct. 6) - Illegal immigrants awaiting deportation would be confined according to the risk they may pose under a new plan being proposed by the homeland security secretary.
Former hotels, nursing homes and other sites would be used to hold nonviolent, non-criminal immigrants as part of a larger plan to reform immigration detention, according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press. The alternative sites are intended to cut the costs of detaining immigrants, which reached nearly $2 billion in 2008.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will detail her plan Tuesday. The reforms were previewed by the agency in August without as much detail.
The plan is based on a review of immigration detention by Dora Schriro, Napolitano's former detention adviser. She resigned last month to become commissioner of New York City's jails.
Under the plan, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, part of the Homeland Security Department, will develop a way to classify immigrant detainees that will determine the facility where they are detained.
John Morton, head of ICE, will research the hotels and other venues where nonviolent, non-criminal immigrants could be held. The agency expects to save money by not putting everyone in local, state and government jails and prisons as they do now.
ICE also will submit to Congress in coming weeks a plan for using alternatives to detention. The agency says possible alternatives will cost only about $14 a day compared with about $100 a day for detention.
The agency has completed one of the reforms announced in August, removing families from T. Don Hutto detention center, a former prison in central Texas. The agency plans to detain women there who are now held at three facilities in Texas, saving about $900,000 through the end of the year, the documents state.
The agency said it paid $2.8 million a month at Hutto even when it was not full.
ICE plans to put 50 federal employees in detention centers where more than 80 percent of immigrants are held, more than double the 23 employees announced in August, in an effort to improve conditions. Hiring notices for the jobs were posted Sept. 18.
ICE says it has paid $200,000 per facility at more than 30 facilities for contractors to monitor conditions. But the agency says a federal employee, training and equipment would cost about $160,000.

CNN Lou Dobbs - HISPANDERING OBAMA sucking up to illegals = illegals' votes!

Lou Dobbs Tonight
Tuesday, October 6, 2009

The Obama administration could be weakening a
successful joint federal and local program aimed at keeping
illegal immigrants off our streets. "287 G" gives local police
the training and authority to enforce federal immigration law.
Supporters of the program believe the administration wants to
limit the program to criminal illegal immigrants already in
custody -- limiting the investigative authority of police.



Jose Herria emigrated illegally from Mexico to Stockton, Calif., in 1997 to work as a fruit picker. He brought with him his wife, Felipa, and three children, 19, 12 and 8 – all illegals. When Felipa gave birth to her fourth child, daughter Flor, the family had what is referred to as an "anchor baby" – an American citizen by birth who provided the entire Silverio clan a ticket to remain in the U.S. permanently. But Flor was born premature, spent three months in the neonatal incubator and cost the San Joaquin Hospital more than $300,000. Meanwhile, oldest daughter Lourdes married an illegal alien gave birth to a daughter, too. Her name is Esmeralda. And Felipa had yet another child, Cristian. The two Silverio anchor babies generate $1,000 per month in public welfare funding for the family. Flor gets $600 a month for asthma. Healthy Cristian gets $400. While the Silverios earned $18,000 last year picking fruit, they picked up another $12,000 for their two "anchor babies." While President Bush says the U.S. needs more "cheap labor" from south of the border to do jobs Americans aren't willing to do, the case of the Silverios shows there are indeed uncalculated costs involved in the importation of such labor – public support and uninsured medical costs. In fact, the increasing number of illegal aliens coming into the United States is forcing the closure of hospitals, spreading previously vanquished diseases and threatening to destroy America's prized health-care system, says a report in the spring issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. "The influx of illegal aliens has serious hidden medical consequences," writes Madeleine Pelner Cosman, author of the report. "We judge reality primarily by what we see. But what we do not see can be more dangerous, more expensive, and more deadly than what is seen." According to her study, 84 California hospitals are closing their doors as a direct result of the rising number of illegal aliens and their non-reimbursed tax on the system. "Anchor babies," the author writes, "born to illegal aliens instantly qualify as citizens for welfare benefits and have caused enormous rises in Medicaid costs and stipends under Supplemental Security Income and Disability Income." In addition, the report says, "many illegal aliens harbor fatal diseases that American medicine fought and vanquished long ago, such as drug-resistant tuberculosis, malaria, leprosy, plague, polio, dengue, and Chagas disease." While politicians often mention there are 43 million without health insurance in this country, the report estimates that at least 25 percent of those are illegal immigrants. The figure could be as high as 50 percent. Not being insured does not mean they don't get medical care. Under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act of 1985, hospitals are obligated to treat the uninsured without reimbursement. "Government imposes viciously stiff fines and penalties on any physician and any hospital refusing to treat any patient that a zealous prosecutor deems an emergency patient, even though the hospital or physician screened and declared the patient's illness or injury non-emergency," says the report. "But government pays neither hospital nor physician for treatments. In addition to the fiscal attack on medical facilities and personnel, EMTALA is a handy truncheon with which to pummel politically unpopular physicians by falsely accusing them of violating EMTALA." According to the report, between 1993 and 2003, 60 California hospitals closed because half their services became unpaid. Another 24 California hospitals verge on closure, the author writes. "American hospitals welcome 'anchor babies,'" says the report. "Illegal alien women come to the hospital in labor and drop their little anchors, each of whom pulls its illegal alien mother, father, and siblings into permanent residency simply by being born within our borders. Anchor babies are citizens, and instantly qualify for public welfare aid: Between 300,000 and 350,000 anchor babies annually become citizens because of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside." Among the organizations directing illegal aliens into America's medical systems, according to the report, are the Ford Foundation-funded Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the National Immigration Law Center, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the American Bar Association's Commission on Immigration Policy, Practice, and Pro Bono, the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, the National Council of La Raza, George Soros's Open Society Institute, the Migration Policy Institute, the National Network for Immigration and Refugee Rights and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Because drug addiction and alcoholism are classified as diseases and disabilities, the fiscal toll on the health-care system rises.


Subject: Cheap Labor This should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent From a California school teacher.
"As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of: I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title 1 school, meaning that its students average lower socioeconomic and income levels. Most of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, etc., where these students are protesting, are also Title 1 schools. Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I'm not talking a glass of milk and roll -- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK) I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell phones. The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids. (OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK) I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new computers for the computer learning center, half of which, one month later, have been carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America. (OUR TAX DOLLARS A T WORK) I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less then 3 months who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them "Putas" whores and throwing things that the teachers were in tears. Free medical, free education, free food, day care etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled to not only be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and entitlements? To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE costs.


Anchor Babies

Anchor Babies - In Conclusion...The Educational Chaos
Part 4 - Fomenting Failure In Our Educational Systems
In this final entry of this series on Anchor Babies in America, we shall investigate the unbelievable but verifiable costs to American citizens. Additionally, we will explore ancillary problems created by illegal alien children within our classrooms across the country.

Do we blame the children? No! Do we blame their parents? Yes! (They know they are illegal aliens!)

Who do we blame? Simple! Our U.S. Congress and U.S. presidents from Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43 and today, Obama! They must take responsibility for this fiscal/educational and linguistic fiasco. They failed to enforce our laws in the past 20 years, and Obama fails to enforce our immigration and labor laws in 2009. Thus, they allowed countless tens of thousands of employers within the United States to subvert our laws as to employment of unlawful immigrants. Our Congress allowed a new 21st century slave class to establish itself in excess of 20 million unlawful aliens-inside this country. The rich benefit and the rest of us subsidize and suffer from it.

While those 20 million enjoy employment, housing, welfare, food and medical care on U.S. taxpayer dollars, 15 million Americans cannot find a job. An astounding 32.2 million Americans subsist on food stamps. Our working poor and minorities languish in the streets and 13 million American children live below the poverty level.

Those 400,000 anchor babies cost taxpayers big time! At $6,000.00 per delivery in our hospitals where those pregnant alien mothers take themselves to birth their children X's 400,000 annually: $2.4 billion annually. Year after year after year! If the child suffers from autism, Down's Syndrome, myocardial septal defect (hole in heart), deformity, premature birth in ICU or other problems-the costs may hit $1 million and more.

Remember also, that the mother becomes a ward of the welfare rolls in assisted housing, food stamps, medical care, welfare payments-all on the taxpayer's dollar. Instead of 400,000 dependents, the actual number doubles to 900,000. Additionally, as that mother births more children, the costs rise dramatically.

Once the child reaches age five, it begins a 13 year educational journey that costs taxpayers on average $9,644.00 annually depending on school districts within the United States. When you add in 'free' breakfasts and lunches for those disadvantaged children, the costs rise into the billions of dollars. Finally, English as a Second Language costs taxpayers according to economist Edwin Rubenstein:

"The total additional per pupil costs for language assistance instruction was estimated to be in the range of $200 to $700 in 1981 dollars-equivalent to $460 to $1,600 in 2007 dollars. Using the average of the latter two amounts-$1,030-as our estimate of per pupil cost, the total cost of providing English Language Learning instruction to the 3.8 million students enrolled in those programs would equal about $3.9 billion. ($1,030 3.8 million.)." (Source: http://www.thesocialcontract.com , Department of Education - Immigration Fiscal Impact Statement, By Edwin S. Rubenstein
Volume 18, Number 2 (Winter 2007-2008) Issue theme: "What price mass immigration?"

With those figures of 3.8 million illegal immigrant children and children born as anchor babies X's a minimum figure of $5.00 for 'free' breakfasts and lunches X's 180 school days equals: $5.42 billion annually.

Talk about throwing U.S. taxpayer dollars down a rat hole, NBC's Brian Williams reported last June that high school graduation rates around the country suffered tremendously. Detroit public schools, loaded with Middle Eastern legal and illegal immigrants along with unlawful Mexican migrant children tallied an astounding 76 percent dropout/flunkout rate among potential graduating seniors. Other cities like L.A., Chicago and Houston hovered around 50 to 60 percent dropout rates.

Brian Williams reported that 1.2 million 'American' teens hit the streets annually "functionally illiterate."

In my city of Denver, 67 percent of the graduating class dropped out or flunked out before age eighteen. (Source: Rocky Mountain News, "What Happened?")

Dan Stein at http://www.fairus.org published a report titled: "Breaking the Piggy Bank: How Illegal Immigration is Sending Schools into the Red". Estimated costs of educating illegal migrant children and anchor babies: $7.5 billion annually.

The report said, in California, the $2.2 billion spent educating illegal alien immigrants for one year could:
• Pay the salaries for 41,764 teachers.
• CA schools are threatened with a $1.5 billion cut next year. Eliminating illegals would pay for all needs.
• Pay for CA's class sizes to remain capped at 20 students for a year, with $300 million to spare.
• Buy books and computers to equip 346,689 classrooms or 79 percent of classrooms in California.
• Fully fund the state's free lunch program for poor American students for two years.

Instead, California dropped from the top five top school systems in the United States to the bottom five states. Teaches struggle teaching with 113 different languages in their classrooms. As a teacher, I can tell you that more than one language in a classroom causes educational tension, ethnic tension from lack of ability to communicate and racial separation.

Students become angry, stubborn, and overwhelmed as they 'drop out' from sheer frustration and inability to perform academically. Violence ensues or complete withdrawal! Thousands join gangs for their identity.

Finally, what about U.S. children? What about the quality of their educations? What about their well-being? What about our own poverty-stricken students and special needs across the country?

Today, one-third of all students graduating from high schools heavily impacted by mass immigration must take remedial courses in universities to bring their minds up to speed for college work. In thousands of schools, gangs, foreign languages, and strange customs usurp the educational experience for U.S. students.

At some point, and soon, we must stop 'birthright citizenship' as all other countries, including Ireland and New Zealand, have done.

This year, House member Nathan Deal introduced HR 1868: reintroduced his Birthright Citizenship bill that would eliminate automatic citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal aliens. The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009 (H.R.1868) would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to make it more difficult for children born in the U.S. to gain citizenship.

Under the proposed legislation, a person born in the United States, in order to gain citizenship, must have at least one parent who is:
A U.S. citizen or national;
A lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States; or
An alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Thank you for joining http://www.numbersusa.com and http://www.capsweb.org and http://www.fairus.org to send in pre-written faxes that will push the entire Congress to pass this important bill. Otherwise, you will keep paying and paying billions and billions-year after year with no end in sight.

Additionally, when those kids reach 18, they can chain migrate their entire families into the USA-causing a horrific overload of our infrastructure, carrying capacity and quality of life. Not to mention we are displacing Americans out of their own culture, language and way of life!


EDUCATING ILLEGALS Who Hate To Speak English?!?!?!

Meanwhile there is no money left to properly education the children of Americans.
“There are an estimated 1.5 million school-aged illegal immigrants in the United States and the government spends an estimated $12 billion annually to educate them. The biggest chunks are spent by California ($7.7 billion) and Texas ($3.9 billion), where the situation has become a public education crisis with no end in sight. The Lone Star State’s public schools have seen a huge increase in illegal immigrant Hispanic students with dismal Mexican and Central American education histories that are contributing to an overall lowering of academic standards across the board.”

LOS ANGELES Pushes For Easy Access Health Care For ILLEGALS

Verification of illegal immigrants is scrutinized amid healthcare debate
L.A. County officials question cost-effectiveness of rules aimed at screening those trying to get public health services.
By Teresa Watanabe
October 6, 2009
Los Angeles County health worker Leonardo Rincon lifts the birth certificate up to the light and expertly scrutinizes it. Do faint watermarks show up? Yes. He rubs his thumb over the official seal to see if it is raised. It is. He checks the number of digits in the document number. Perfect.

Ruth Torres, he decides, has brought in valid U.S. birth certificates for her six children, a valid U.S. passport for her husband and a valid green card for herself, a legal immigrant from Mexico. The family will continue to receive public healthcare benefits, as least for the next year.

Since July 2008, when Los Angeles County began implementing tougher federal verification rules, Rincon and his colleagues have gone back to check the documents of more than 100,000 recipients of Medi-Cal, the public healthcare program for low-income residents.

The county has received nearly $28 million in state and federal funds to cover the cost of the program and posted 81 people in 27 social service department offices to check documents, Walker said.

So far, they have not found one illegal immigrant who posed as a legal resident to get benefits, according to Deborah Walker, the county's Medi-Cal program director. Fewer than 1% of applicants between July 2008 and February 2009 lacked the proper documents, and many of those applicants eventually produced them, she said.

Among new Medi-Cal applicants, county officials have found a relative handful of cheaters under the tougher standards. In the El Monte office, for instance, supervisor Alma Young said that five to eight undocumented immigrants were discovered among about 7,000 applicants in her unit over the last year -- about 0.1% of the total.

"It's been a big effort without a whole lot of payback," Walker said of the program.

As the health insurance debate continues to rage, a key point of contention has been how to screen out illegal immigrants from access to any new public benefits. U.S. citizens and legal residents are entitled to full public health benefits; illegal immigrants are eligible only for emergency and pregnancy care.

Members of Congress have proposed a range of new verification requirements, including presentation of photo identification and checks with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's immigration database. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-New York), has proposed requiring biometric ID cards -- using fingerprints, for instance -- to prove citizenship.

"The point of this is not to catch people, it's to deter them and potentially save tons of money," said Steven A. Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based research organization that advocates immigration restrictions. "If you don't have these systems, you might have hundreds of thousands of illegals trying to get health benefits."

Immigrant advocates disagree. They argue that stricter verification rules, such as those implemented last year in Los Angeles County, have proven costly, ineffective and ultimately harmful to U.S. citizens who may be deprived of healthcare because they lack the required documents.

The stricter rules were passed as part of the 2005 federal Deficit Reduction Act and require applicants for Medi-Cal to present documents proving citizenship or legal status. Previously, applicants only had to declare their status on affidavits.

Nationally, however, two federal studies have raised questions about the cost-effectiveness of the rules. One congressional oversight committee found that the regulations cost the federal government and six of nine states surveyed this year $16.6 million in new administrative costs but resulted in snagging only eight illegal immigrants.

A 2007 study by the Government Accountability Office found that half of 44 states surveyed said the new requirements had resulted in a decline in Medicaid recipients, but most of those affected were believed to be eligible citizens.

Jennifer Ng'andu of the National Council of La Raza said that as many as 13 million U.S. citizens do not have a driver's license, birth certificate or passport.

"We think there are adequate verification systems in place today, and the consequence of imposing more excessive ones will mean that people could be left out of healthcare reform," she said.

ON MEXICAN ASSIMILATION or Turning California Into Mexico?


“In Mexico, a recent Zogby poll declared that the vast majority of Mexican citizens hate Americans. [22.2] Mexico is a country saturated with racism, yet in denial, having never endured the social development of a Civil Rights movement like in the US--Blacks are harshly treated while foreign Whites are often seen as the enemy. [22.3] In fact, racism as workplace discrimination can be seen across the US anywhere the illegal alien Latino works--the vast majority of the workforce is usually strictly Latino, excluding Blacks, Whites, Asians, and others.”

If a Mexican can make it in LA, why couldn't a white girl? (Please! Read this racist latinos rant...)

RE:If a Mexican can make it in LA, why couldn't a white girl?..a mexic (LA)

This is SO telling...a MUST read... it sums up the entire mentality of a "culture" (not a race) that is so thwarted, so backwards and evil that even tho it has supposedly "risked everything" or "Given up Everything" for life in the US where opportunities abound, and sanity is common place..... these fucking destructive animals seek to turn this state into "Mexico".

It's all about that. Don't let any Latino tell you otherwise. This is a corrupt, deceiptful, disrespectful, rude, aggressive and as we have seen in LA with the highest Homicide rate of any culture or group, VIOLENT culture of people.

They don't come here "humbly" to assimilate. They sneak in here, get down to business with the rat like breeding in squalor, overpopulating our state with unloved, uneducatable 3rd world children destined for the streets.

Oh and you're going to say...No they don't ALL.

Ok not ALL....but the overwhelming majority is so HIGH that the good Latinos are lost in the shuffle. We get 90% shit people and maybe, MAYBE 10% decent and possibly even Future Americans.

What a nasty culture... read what this disgusting hateful racist animal posted below.

he can't live in a country where the whole world lives together as one.

He has to have his Racist Take Over agenda to empower him.

He could never compete in Americas Civilized Society.....so the way he and his racist friends "win" is by turning this state into another Mexico.

Another toilet of poverty, trash, corruption, and FAILURE.

MEXICAN BOMBARDMENT - We Are Mexico's Welfare System!

Think about this then. The entire world wants to live in America for the decent standards of living we can provide. No we're not perfect, but we're damn good at what we do compared just about anywhere else in the world.
Imagine this.
The entire world rises to the Respectable challenge of Measuring up to meeting our standards for immigration. A very large % of the people of the rest of the world APPLY for citizenship here. Go through all the channels. Study, and work hard.

Imagine the reality of this. Mexico and Central America have determined that we have a weak border and are easy to penetrate. The poor and desperate peoples mostly illiterate and most of them even REFUSING to practice even modern birth control or even restraint....FLOCK here illegally.

Storm our borders by the thousands daily.

Barging in front of the good people of the REST of the ENTIRE WORLD that have applied and patiently waited for acceptance.

This is pure insanity. Because of this invasion mentality and our Idiotic pussy government unable to stand on its own two feet to protect AMERICAN people from being overrun by poverty, crime, overpopulation, gang mentalities, breeder mentalities, trashing and violent people, we are now saturated by ONE nation, and a few other Central American nations only.

The rest of the world? Didn't have a chance here.

Just Mexico.... and maybe El Salvador and a few others..... PUSHING and fucking SHOVING their way into our Country...and then having the fucking NERVE to shove their language and ignorant culture down our throats?

In just 25 years....we have gone from about 10% Latino here....to 60% Latino.

Ideas for Immigrant Detention Include Converting Hotels and Building Models
The Obama administration is looking to convert hotels and nursing homes into immigration detention centers and to build two model detention centers from scratch as it tries to transform the way the government holds people it is seeking to deport.

These and other initiatives, described in an interview on Monday by Janet Napolitano, the secretary of homeland security, are part of the administration’s effort to revamp the much-criticized detention system, even as it expands the enforcement programs that send most people accused of immigration violations to jails and private prisons. The cost, she said, would be covered by greater efficiencies in the detention and removal system, which costs $2.4 billion annually to operate and holds about 380,000 people a year.

“The paradigm was wrong,” Ms. Napolitano said of the nation’s patchwork of rented jail space, which has more than tripled in size since 1995, largely through Immigration and Customs Enforcement contracts for cells more restrictive, and expensive, than required for a population that is largely not dangerous. Among those in detention on Sept. 1, 51 percent were considered felons, and of those, 11 percent had committed violent crimes.

“Serious felons deserve to be in the prison model,” Ms. Napolitano said, “but there are others. There are women. There are children.”

These and other nonviolent people should be sorted and detained or supervised in ways appropriate to their level of danger or flight risk, she said. Her goal, she said, is “to make immigration detention more cohesive, accountable and relevant to the entire spectrum of detainees we are dealing with.”

Several of the initiatives Ms. Napolitano described, to be formally announced on Tuesday afternoon, are steps on a road outlined in August, when John Morton, the assistant secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, announced an ambitious plan to transform the penal network into a “truly civil detention system.”

But the corrections expert he had put in charge of the overhaul, Dora B. Schriro, quit last month to become the corrections commissioner in New York City, after delivering a report on her eight-month top-to-bottom review of the system. The report had remained under wraps until now.

Dr. Schriro’s departure, and the delay in making her report public, dismayed many of the dozens of immigrant advocacy groups she consulted. Her 35-page report, provided to The New York Times after the interview on the condition that it not be posted on its Web site until Tuesday afternoon, calls for prompt attention to individual complaints about a lack of medical care, and “a credible grievance process, sustained in an environment free from intimidation and retaliation.”

In her interview, Ms. Napolitano said little about medical care but promised that within six months the Department of Homeland Security would “devise and implement” a classification system to better place people with medical or mental health needs in the right detention centers.

That vow puzzled some immigrant advocacy groups that deal with seriously ill detainees, including some who have died in federal custody after not getting proper treatment. The groups said they were concerned about the gap between announced plans to improve medical care and the actions of immigration officials.

Cheryl Little, the director of the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, pointed to the case of a woman she called Rosemarie, who, while being detained at the Glades County Detention Center, has suffered severe daily bleeding as a result of a fibroid tumor in her uterus.

“This has gone on for more than the five months she has been in ICE custody,” Ms. Little said. “Since June, we have tried everything to get her proper treatment. We started the requests at the local level and escalated up to D.H.S. headquarters. Ultimately we’ve had to file a lawsuit, and Rosemarie still hasn’t had the surgery she needs.”

Ms. Napolitano noted repeatedly that some of the initiatives she was announcing were “easier said than done.” Plans to speed the implementation of an online system for families and lawyers to locate detainees, for example, have been complicated by privacy issues and by the fact that many detainees share names and some stay in the system for only a couple of days, she said.

Likewise, though alternatives to detention are much cheaper than the jails under contract — $14 a day at most per person, compared with more than $100 a day — the overall cost is more complicated to calculate, she said.

About 19,000 noncitizens are supervised daily using alternatives like electronic bracelets, but their immigration cases are moved to the back of the line for adjudication. Homeland Security is working with the Justice Department, which oversees immigration courts, to modify that practice, she said, and this fall will submit a proposal to Congress to expand detention alternatives.

A request for proposals to build two model detention centers, one in California, will be issued within a year, said Mr. Morton, the ICE official. On Oct. 30, he said, he will solicit proposals and market research about converted hotels, nursing homes and other residential facilities that could serve as less expensive and less restrictive detention centers.

Mr. Morton said that on Sept. 18 the agency began housing nonviolent detainees, including new asylum seekers, at the Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach, Fla., near free legal help. But Charu al-Sahli, the statewide director of the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, said the Broward center, run for profit by GEO, a large prison company formerly known as Wackenhut, had been housing asylum seekers since 2003.

A former work-release center now surrounded by barbed wire, it is being expanded to house 700, up from 530.

“Even though it’s a nicer environment than a jail,” Ms. al-Sahli said, “these are still the people we would hold up for release, not just nicer detention.”


So I'm sitting at a McDonalds parking lot eating my egg McNuffin. Four cars stopped at a light on the highway in front of the place.

A pickup slambs into the cars at forty miles an hour. It was like he didn't see that they were stopped. A little Fiero had two people trapped inside. The driver of the pickup was frantically searching behind his seat, presumably for a pry bar. He looked Mexican.

Then somebody got the doors open. Three ambulances show up. Lots of injured people. But then I notice the Mexican is no where to be found.

He was getting his personal posessions before splitting while the trapped people were at risk of being burned alive.

Then I'm in the social security administration and there is a big sign saying using a false SS number is a crime.

This Mexican kid is trying to get his mom on social security. They and the social security lady are going over all the false numbers she had been using over the past Years to get credit for money paid in. They were literally standing under the sign that said it was a crime.

Another. I get rear ended by a Mexian. The cop comes, lets them go and says "You can't squeeze blood from a turnip". I guess the cops were instructed to not enforce the law.

And they shut down the steers for the Cinco De Mayo parades. With cops blocking the side streets.

I wrote a letter to W when he first got in complaining about illegals and actually got a letter back from the white house scolding me. It pointed out our heritage of immigrants. I still have it. I simply couldn't believe it.

Napa is half Mexican. Napa county spent over a million dollars to build housing for illegals along with the wineries. There was an uproar but nothing happened. Now the Library and Detox are on reduced schedules because Napa is broke.

It's like fighting City Hall. You can't do anything. You are damned who ever you vote for. The McCain/Kennedy Amnesty bill said it all.

Obama will grant blanket amnesty for sure. It's going to happen. Meanwhile they continue to pour in along with the drugs that addle the brains of out kids.

It can't go on. We are very vulnerable to being invaded. We are weak with corrupt leaders. We will fall. It's just a matter of time.

I'm in Missouri at the moment and Mexicans are big here. Meanwhile everyone is losing their jobs. It's like a wave sweeping the Midwest.

There is absolutely nothing I can do to stop it. Voting Republican is like voting Democrat.

And let me tell you. You think things are bad now. Just wait till taxes go up and interest rates go back to their natural levels.

The banks already own tons of homes not on the foreclosure list. They can only have so many or they become troubled banks. So a Huge number of houses are in the pipeline. The $8,000 credit is set to expire.

I have looked at a number of these foreckosures. They are all torn up. Every one needs a roof, carpet and repairs. This costs at least ten grand.

Kansas City is full of houses for rent. My friend had been trying to rent hers for a year. So of you do buy one of these for a rental, fix it up, you can't rent it out.

We have a very, very big problem comming at us. And the interest on our debt to China will rise too or else no one will buy the replacement bonds we issue.

"Jose Illegal" also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and
gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

New Video Highlights Incentives Given as Main Cause of Illegals (The Greener Grass )

The Greener Grass: New Video Highlights Incentives Given as Main Cause of Illegal Immigration

By Jennifer Magyari,

With the recent controversy over adding verification to the health care reform bill prohibiting illegal aliens from participating in a government plan, it is a good time to question why so many from neighboring countries, and all over the world, want to come to America.

The most obvious answer is that we reward lawbreakers with jobs, free emergency room health care, and free education (not to mention other benefits that can be obtained by cheating the system with false documentation). They are able to find employers who have no moral qualms about hiring them and breaking the laws of our country. As if it couldn’t get any better, the cherry on top is that we have a President who is continuously making appearances on Spanish Language Programs and promising viewers “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” (read: amnesty) as early as next year.

In the new video, The Greener Grass, immigration experts explain why so many are willing to cross the border and overstay visas to remain in our country. Many of these illegal aliens cannot receive the benefits and good treatment they do in America in their home countries. The truth is that the United States cannot accept every person in the world who is worse off than the average American. The rate at which we currently accept foreigners is already detrimental to the quality of life of our citizens.

Many foreign governments have little problem with their citizens illegally living in America—it means less benefits they have to pay, fewer jobs they have to provide, and more money their country receives from their citizens residing in America. It is estimated that $23 billion is sent back to Mexico each year from Mexicans living in America. Worldwide, $300 billion is sent home from foreigners working in America.

Taking all of this into account, how can this change? Our President and many leaders in Congress insist on continuing to provide taxpayer funded benefits to illegal aliens while promising them citizenship next year.

Just as Americans have done in the past few weeks, we must contact our elected officials and let them know that we do not want to encourage illegal immigration by offering illegal aliens incentives to break our laws. We must remind President Obama and Congress that we are paying attention. Please watch this video and keep the pressure on!

JENNY MAGYARI is the Assistant to the President at NumbersUSA

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who has direct control over a new $24 mill

'“AT NIGHT, IT’S LIKE, BAM, BAM, bam, bam!” Art Pulido says of gang gunfire in the badly tattered neighborhoods of Cypress Park and Montecito Heights. The area is part of 12 zones across the city, established by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who has direct control over a new $24 million Gang Reduction and Youth Development (GRYD) task force.

His bleak summation is already hinted at in Villaraigosa’s unprecedented decision to create a committee of about 50 anonymous private citizens — whose own backgrounds and conflicts are unknown — to decide where to award $24 million in taxpayer funds. Under a shroud of secrecy, Villaraigosa’s committee is handing out huge infusions of money to local contractors, all of whom claim their programs will keep kids out of gangs.

Wary gang experts find it hard to believe that placing the $24 million directly under Villaraigosa’s control is much different from the City Council’s own famously failed L.A. Bridges antigang program.
