MEXICANS SAY OBAMA'S AMNESTY WILL INCREASE ILLEGALS - Why Else Is He Opening Our Borders Wider?

MEXICANOCCUPATION.blogspot.com

There are already 38 million illegals in the country. La Raza, the Mexican supremacist party for expansion of the Mexican welfare state, is actively fighting against illegals participating in the census. They do this through the Mexican media, and through the Catholic church. The Senate has joined in this fight. BOTH LA RAZA ENTITIES DO NOW WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO KNOW HOW BAD THE MEXICAN INVASION AND OCCUPATION IS!

Where in this country is it NOT Mexican occupied?

Mexicans Say Amnesty Will Boost Illegal Immigration
last Updated: Wed, 10/14/2009 - 3:02pm
If President Obama keeps his promise of giving the nation’s 12 million illegal aliens amnesty it will encourage more Mexicans to enter the United States, according to residents of the struggling Latin American country who are undoubtedly rooting for the commander-in-chief’s plan.
The majority of illegal immigrants in the U.S. are from Mexico therefore the president’s reprieve project will greatly affect that nation. Two-thirds of Mexicans say they know someone living in the United States and around one-third have an immediate member of their household or close relative living in the U.S.
A majority of those residing south of the border say legalizing their undocumented countrymen will inspire more Mexicans to head north, according to a recent survey conducted by an internationally known polling and market research company. A vast majority of Mexicans with a relative in the United States said a legalization program would make people they know more likely to go to America illegally.
The results of the survey were made public this week by a research organization dedicated to studying the economic, social, fiscal and demographic impacts of immigration in the U.S. It reveals that nearly one-third of Mexican residents (nearly 40 million people) would like to live in the U.S. and if there was an amnesty a large number would come illegally with the hope of qualifying for a future exoneration.
An amnesty, therefore, would stimulate more illegal immigration which is the last thing this country needs. Furthermore, rewarding those who have violated our nation’s laws with coveted U.S. residency and possibly citizenship demeans the system, especially for those who follow the appropriate steps to come lawfully.
It’s bad enough that U.S. taxpayers annually dish out billions of dollars to educate, medically treat and incarcerate illegal aliens who are, in many cases, depleting local governments. Los Angeles County alone spends more than $1 billion a year, including $48 million a month in welfare costs, to provide services for illegal aliens. The crisis is hardly limited to border states, which have traditionally been the most impacted. Georgia’s skyrocketing illegal population costs taxpayers nearly $2 billion a year.

ILLEGAL ALIEN POPULATION MAY BE AS HIGH AS 38 MILLION
Study: Illegal alien population may be as high as 38 million A new report finds the Homeland Security Department "grossly underestimates" the number of illegal aliens living in the U.S. Homeland Security's Office of Immigration Studies released a report August 31 that estimates the number of illegal aliens residing in the U.S. is between 8 and 12 million. But the group Californians for Population Stabilization, or CAPS, has unveiled a report estimating the illegal population is actually between 20 and 38 million. Four experts, all of whom contributed to the study prepared by CAPS, discussed their findings at a news conference at the National Press Club in Washington Wednesday. James Walsh, a former associate general counsel of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, said he is "appalled" that the Bush administration, lawyers on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and every Democratic presidential candidate, with the exception of Joe Biden, have no problem with sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. "Ladies and gentlemen, the sanctuary cities and the people that support them are violating the laws of the United States of America. They're violating 8 USC section 1324 and 1325, which is a felony -- [it's] a felony to aid, support, transport, shield, harbor illegal aliens," Walsh stated. Walsh said his analysis indicating there are 38 million illegal aliens in the U.S. was calculated using the conservative estimate of three illegal immigrants entering the U.S. for each one apprehended. According to Walsh, "In the United States, immigration is in a state of anarchy -- not chaos, but anarchy."

Trying Times Ahead: The Prospect of 60 Million Californians
By VERLYN KLINKENBORG
Recently, the California Department of Finance projected that there will be some 60 million people living in the state by 2050. At present there are 36 million. The numbers in themselves are frightening enough, but what I find terrifying is the bland assumption that a two-thirds increase in population is inevitable and that the main problem will be creating the infrastructure necessary to house, feed, educate, transport and govern all those people. To me, the main problem is how to keep them from showing up in the first place. Somehow the numbers in themselves don’t really suggest the sobering weight of this projection. To say that for every three Californians now there will be five in 2050 doesn’t capture the scale of change. If you said that for every three houses now there will be five in 2050, or for every three cars, ditto, you might be getting a little closer to the visceral feel of the thing. But when it comes to houses and cars, California is a land of loaves and fishes, always multiplying in the most unexpected ways. To live in the state is to live with unrelenting change, whether you like it or not, and it has been that way for decades. But this population increase will mean more than filling up San Bernardino, Riverside and Kern Counties and paving the entire midsection of the state and creating impromptu day-schools and conference centers in stopped traffic. We tend to talk about humans as if they were interchangeable — as if the Californian of 1957 were somehow equivalent to the Californian of 2007. But today’s Californian consumes far more, if you consider consumption in its broadest sense. Draw pictures of those two Californians to the scale of their consumption, and the present-day resident would dwarf his ancestor. There’s a chance that a mid-21st-century Californian will look back in horror at the enormous consumption footprint of someone living in the state right now. That sense of horror would be good news — a sign that the coming generations had taken to heart that the way we live now, even in its current dimensions, is unsustainable. The trouble, of course, is that a population projection like this one more or less takes it for granted that not much will have changed by 2050. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be 60 million people in the state. 60 million Californians by mid-century Riverside will become the second most populous county behind Los Angeles and Latinos the dominant ethnic group, study says.By Maria L. La Ganga and Sara LinTimes Staff Writers July 10, 2007 Over the next half-century, California's population will explode by nearly 75%, and Riverside will surpass its bigger neighbors to become the second most populous county after Los Angeles, according to state Department of Finance projections released Monday. California will near the 60-million mark in 2050, the study found, raising questions about how the state will look and function and where all the people and their cars will go. Dueling visions pit the iconic California building block of ranch house, big yard and two-car garage against more dense, high-rise development. But whether sprawl or skyscrapers win the day, the Golden State will probably be a far different and more complex place than it is today, as people live longer and Latinos become the dominant ethnic group, eclipsing all others combined. Some critics forecast disaster if gridlock and environmental impacts are not averted. Others see a possible economic boon, particularly for retailers and service industries with an eye on the state as a burgeoning market. "It's opportunity with baggage," said Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp., in "a country masquerading as a state." Other demographers argue that the huge population increase the state predicts will occur only if officials complete major improvements to roads and other public infrastructure. Without that investment, they say, some Californians would flee the state. If the finance department's calculations hold, California's population will rise from 34.1 million in 2000 to 59.5 million at the mid-century point, about the same number of people as Italy has today. And its projected growth rate in those 50 years will outstrip the national rate — nearly 75% compared with less than 50% projected by the federal government. That could translate to increased political clout in Washington, D.C. Southern California's population is projected to grow at a rate of more than 60%, according to the new state figures, reaching 31.6 million by mid-century. That's an increase of 12.1 million over just seven counties. L.A. County alone will top 13 million by 2050, an increase of almost 3.5 million residents. And Riverside County — long among the fastest-growing in the state — will triple in population to 4.7 million by mid-century. Riverside County will add 3.1 million people, according to the new state figures, eclipsing Orange and San Diego to become the second most populous in the state. With less expensive housing than the coast, Riverside County has grown by more than 472,000 residents since 2000, according to state estimates. USC Professor Genevieve Giuliano, an expert on land use and transportation, would probably agree. Such massive growth, if it occurs, she said, will require huge investment in the state's highways, schools, and energy and sewer systems at a "very formidable cost." If those things aren't built, Giuliano questioned whether the projected population increases will occur. "Sooner or later, the region will not be competitive and the growth is not going to happen," she said. If major problems like traffic congestion and housing costs aren't addressed, Giuliano warned, the middle class is going to exit California, leaving behind very high-income and very low-income residents. I.E. MILLIONS OF ILLITERATE MEXICANS. The Department of Finance releases long-term population projections every three years. Between the last two reports, number crunchers have taken a more detailed look at California's statistics and taken into account the likelihood that people will live longer, said chief demographer Mary Heim. The result? The latest numbers figure the state will be much more crowded than earlier estimates (by nearly 5 million) and that it will take a bit longer than previously thought for Latinos to become the majority of California's population: 2042, not 2038. 75% OF THE GROWTH WILL BE LATINO The figures show that the majority of California's growth will be in the Latino population, said Dowell Myers, a professor of urban planning and demography at USC, adding that "68% of the growth this decade will be Latino, 75% next and 80% after that." That should be a wake-up call for voting Californians, Myers said, pointing out a critical disparity. Though the state's growth is young and Latino, the majority of voters will be older and white — at least for the next decade. "The future of the state is Latino growth," Myers said. "We'd sure better invest in them and get them up to speed. Older white voters don't see it that way. They don't realize that someone has to replace them in the work force, pay for their benefits and buy their house." http://immigrationcounters.com/

Obama soft on illegals enforcement

Arrests of illegal immigrant workers have dropped precipitously under President Obama, according to figures released Wednesday. Criminal arrests, administrative arrests, indictments and convictions of illegal immigrants at work sites all fell by more than 50 percent from fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2009.

The figures show that Mr. Obama has made good on his pledge to shift enforcement away from going after illegal immigrant workers themselves - but at the expense of Americans' jobs, said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the Republican who compiled the numbers from the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). Mr. Smith, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said a period of economic turmoil is the wrong time to be cutting enforcement and letting illegal immigrants take jobs that Americans otherwise would hold.

CRIMINALS MAKING THE DEMANDS!

The flags and the demands for action "NOW!" suggested a sort of arrogance and entitlement when humility would have been more in order.



BY EVA RODRIGUEZ


Mexican flag has no place in an immigration march

Let's get this out of the way: I am the daughter of immigrants who fled Cuba in 1960. They arrived in this country with the blessing of the U.S. government, which generously offered people like my parents refuge from Castro's regime. My parents became fluent in English, became citizens as soon as they could and raised their four children on lechon asado (Cuban roast pork) and the Pledge of Allegiance.

It is a travesty that the government does not give more people the opportunities presented to my parents, and through them, to me. Instead, many people desperate for work or for freedom or both take the law into their own hands and enter the country illegally. I understand the feelings of the tens of thousands of people who marched on the National Mall yesterday in pursuit of immigration reform and, in particular, paths to citizenship for millions of undocumented workers. I understand their desire to live without fear of arrest, to simply do an honest day's work and to see their children thrive. I understand that our immigration system is haplessly dysfunctional and that major reforms are needed.
What I don't understand is the claim by some at the march that those here illegally are somehow victims.
Did they not choose to come to this country, and did they not know that they either entered illegally or illegally overstayed visas? Of course they did. Do they not appreciate that one of the things that makes this country great is the rule of law -- unlike, sadly, some of the countries we leave behind? If so, undocumented immigrants must take responsibility for their plight. Finally, I found it offensive that some people in yesterday's march waved the flags of Mexico, Honduras and El Salvador while demanding rights and privileges from this country. The flags and the demands for action "NOW!" suggested a sort of arrogance and entitlement when humility would have been more in order. Perhaps these marchers meant the flags as symbols of cultural or ethnic identity and not as political banners of foreign sovereigns. Perhaps they meant absolutely no offense and are at once proud of their heritage and sincere in their desire to become Americans. I trust that they did.

“A recent Pew poll indicated that a very large percentage of Americans of Mexican descent regard themselves as Mexicans. Not Mexican-Americans, not American-Mexicans. Just Mexicans.”

Sonoma County Sheriff Bill Cogbill said Friday he wants to clear the air over a key local issue expected to turn out thousands of Latino immigrants and their supporters to a march and rally in downtown Santa Rosa on Sunday.
(YOU THOUGHT THERE WAS A PLACE IN MEXIFORNIA NOT UNDER MEX OCCUPATION?)
Thousands march in Santa Rosa for immigration reform
The issue is a new system in which fingerprints taken from people booked in the county ail are sent electronically to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, databases.
Cogbill said Friday the new program is not a local policy, nor is there any official agreement between the county and ICE, an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“We didn’t have a choice in it,” Cogbill said. “They came to us just to let us know this is happening.”
He said that even before the “biometric” fingerprinting program was launched in Sonoma County this month, fingerprints were routinely sent to the state Department of Justice, which would then have them checked for criminal history against databases maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
But under a new initiative being rolled out gradually across the country, the FBI now is sending fingerprints to ICE.
Cogbill said he personally approves of the program because it helps more effectively identify illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds. But he stressed, “we’re not doing anything different from our end” and there’s no agreement between the Sheriff’s Office and ICE.
ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said the program, known as Secure Communities, is the latest tool being used to target illegal immigrants with dangerous criminal backgrounds, many of whom would otherwise “slip through the cracks.”
Top priority, she said, is illegal immigrants who commit crimes such as murder, rape, robbery, kidnap and drug offenses.
“Our desired outcome is to see that person removed from the United States,” Kice said.

(REALITY CHECK: MEXICANS ARE THE MOST VIOLENT, RACIST AND CRIMINALLY PRONE. THERE ARE OVER A MILLION MEXICAN GANG MEMBERS ALONE IN OUR OPEN AND UNDEFENDED BORDERS!)

But immigrant rights advocates say it’s not just people with serious criminal backgrounds that will be affected. Organizers of Sunday’s march charge that local jails hold illegal immigrants who have committed minor infractions, such as traffic violations.
“They’re not just taking cars, they’re putting people in jail,” said Alvarez.
(THE OL’ GRINGO IS A RACIST CRAP!)
He said he believes law enforcement officials are “profiling” immigrants based on their appearance, a claim Cogbill and other local law enforcement officials strongly reject.
Secure Communities, Kice said, recently has been expanded to Orange County, bringing the number of participating counties to 12. The others are Los Angeles, Ventura, San Diego, Imperial, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Sacramento, Solano, San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.
There are 120 jurisdictions in 16 states now on board, she said. By next year, Secure Communities should be present in every state and should have nationwide coverage by 2013.


18,000 ILLEGAL CRIMINALS GUILTY OF MURDER, RAPE & KIDNAPPING NABBED!

Since its inception, Kice wrote in an e-mail, the program has identified “more than 18,000 aliens charged with or convicted of Level 1 crimes, such as murder, rape and kidnapping — 4,000 of whom have already been removed from the United States.”
Most of those who have not yet been deported are completing their sentences, she said. An additional 25,000 illegal immigrants charged with “Level 2 and 3 crimes,” such as burglary and serious property crimes, have been deported. This latter category of crimes represents 90 percent of the crimes committed by illegal immigrants, she said.

Thousands of people marched in Santa Rosa on Sunday to rally for federal immigration reform and demand changes in the way immigrants are treated by local law enforcement agencies.
The annual march, which began in Roseland and ended with a rally that overflowed Courthouse Square, drew more than 5,000 people, police estimated.
It was one of a series of marches held Sunday around the country — from Washington, D.C., to Salt Lake City and Salinas — designed to pressure lawmakers to overhaul the nation's immigration system.

ILLEGAL MARIA LEON, 38, AND HER DAUGHTER MARIA SANCHEZ, 13 ARE EITHER BOTH ILLEGALS, OR WE PAID FOR MARIA’S BIRTHING OF MARIA SANCHEZ AND THE WELFARE THAT FOLLOWED. MARIA LEON HAS BEEN IN THIS COUNTRY HOW LONG? SHE CAN’T SPEAK ENGLISH BECAUSE MEXICANS ARE RACIST, AND TO SPEAK THE GRINGO’S LANGUAGE IS APING THEM.
APPARENTLY NO ONE TOLD MARIA LEON IT IS ILLEGAL TO VOTE?????

BUT THEN OUR LAWS ARE LIKE OUR BORDERS; A STUPID GRINGO JOKE, ONLY REINFORCED BY THE LA RAZA DEMS HISPANDERING FOR THE ILLEGALS’ ILLEGAL VOTES.
WHAT IS A GREATER THREAT TO OUR NATION THAN 38 MILLION MEXICANS THAT HAVE CONTEMPT FOR OUR BORDERS, LAWS, LANGUAGE, CULTURE, AND ARE OUT VOTING TO FOR THE BIGGEST HISPANDERER?


Waving U.S. flags, Maria Leon, 38, and her daughter Maria Sanchez, 13, said they marched in Santa Rosa to remind President Obama of his promise to push an immigration reform bill.
“We voted for him knowing he'd make change,” Leon said through her daughter, who acted as interpreter.
The annual march and rally are held in honor of the late Cesar Chavez, a farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist who helped found the United Farm Workers union.
PLEASE TELL THESE PEOPLE TO HEAD BACK TO NARCOMEX AND DO THEIR “AZTEC DANCING, AND MAKE NARCOMEX INTO THE DUMPSTER THEY MAKE COMMUNITIES THEY INVADE AND OCCUPY HERE.)
Hundreds of people began gathering Sunday morning at an Albertson's parking lot on Sebastopol Road, the staging grounds for the march. With the large crowd, mariachi bands, Aztec dancers, drummers, American flags and red, white and blue balloons, the pre-march had a festival air as people waited to walk.
Roseland University Prep teacher Enedina Avelar said she came with her three daughters to show support for the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act — called the DREAM Act — a proposed law that would give minors the opportunity to enlist in the military or go to college and have a path to citizenship.
Laws preventing undocumented children from applying for jobs, scholarships and loans unfairly punish children for their parents' choices, she said.
“We have students in that situation, and they say it doesn't help them to work hard because when they graduate there are no opportunities,” Avelar said. “I tell them someday the laws will change and you'll be ready.”
A circle of about 20 people carried a 40-foot-long quilt made of the flags of North American countries. Among them, Ernesto Rodriguez, 39, of Rohnert Park said he's troubled by how often he hears racist rhetoric used by people in discussions of immigration laws.
(“WE’RE JUST FAMILIES. WE’RE JUST LIKE ANYBODY ELSE”… EXCEPT THAT THEY ARE NOT! MEXICANS ARE RACIST, HAVE CONTEMPT FOR THIS COUNTRY’S LAWS, BORDERS AND LANGUAGE. THE VOTE ILLEGALLY, AND WE PAY FOR THEIR BIRTHING WHILE THEY TEACH THEIR CHILDREN TO VIVA MEXICO!)
“The flags represent unity,” Rodriguez said. “It's important for us to come out so people see the faces of so-called illegals. We're just families. We're just like anybody else.”
Many banners, signs and chants called for law enforcement agencies to stop seizing cars from undocumented immigrants who lack a driver's license.
“Stop the confiscation of vehicles,” declared a sign carried by Graciela Rueda, 39, of Santa Rosa.
Immigrants who lose their cars cannot get to work or transport their families, said Davin Cardenas with Graton Day Laborers and the Committee for Immigrant Rights.
“It affects working people,” he said. “For a lot of people their automobile is the only property of value they own.”
Organizers also urged county officials to pull out of a controversial program that uses fingerprints to identify illegal immigrants in the county jail. Last week, Sheriff Bill Cogbill said his department had no input on the federal program, which scans inmates' fingerprints through a database maintained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Sonoma County and city officials must take a stand against local involvement in immigration law enforcement, Cardenas said.
“We need them to be outspoken,” Cardenas said.
The march was much larger than officials expected, said Santa Rosa Police Sgt. Doug Schlief.
“I think it was a little bit bigger than what we've seen in the last couple of years,” Schlief said. He said last year's march was about 2,000 people.
While the march was peaceful, it did cause unexpected traffic congestion as performers stopped to entertain, blocking roadways, Schlief said.
“It's turned into more of a parade,” Schlief said.
The march ended with a rally at Courthouse Square in downtown Santa Rosa. Marcos Suarez, a U.S. Census worker, urged the crowd to fill out census forms and tried to reassure them the information wouldn't be used to find people in the country illegally.
“If we don't get counted, then we lose money for services,” Suarez said. “We need to make sure we don't lose seats in Congress.”
In the crowd, Sebastopol City Councilwoman Kathleen Shaffer said she came to support the work of Graton Day Laborers and other groups working to bring undocumented immigrants out of the shadows.
“They're trying to bring workers in, get them organized. It gets them off the streets,” Shaffer said. “People can appreciate that. I'm here to support that idea.”
Anitra Kitts and Bill Vonseggern just returned home to Santa Rosa from a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico and decided to attend the rally as a show of support.
“We've seen what their home looks like and the needs that push them up here,” Kitts said, speaking of poverty and difficult living conditions they'd seen in Mexico. “They're just trying to have a good life like the rest of us.”

The opposite of compassion
Source URL: http://chronicle.augusta.com/opinion/editorials/2010-04-01/opposite-compassion

Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff
Thursday, April 1, 2010
What Richard Krentz did as a matter of course was compassionate.
What America is doing is not.
The 58-year-old Arizona rancher, described by those who knew him as an unrelenting Good Samaritan, was gunned down in cold blood on his land last week by what most believe must have been a guerrilla in the smuggling of either illegal immigrants or drugs.
Despite dealing with chronic trespassing and theft and damage to his land, Krentz would help illegals in need of water and medical aid.
"That's just my nature," he once told PBS.
It's possible that's what he was trying to do when both he and his dog were shot Saturday morning. Krentz was found dead many hours later on his still-running ATV; his dog was wounded and dying a slow, and no doubt painful, death before being euthanized by authorities.
The tragic irony of his killing is that he was a humanitarian. "He went out of his way to help anybody," his son told reporters. "It didn't matter who they were."
But while Krentz's acts were compassionate, America's immigration policy is the opposite.
In large part to slake America's thirst for cheap labor -- and increasingly to feed political parties salivating over millions of potential grateful voters -- we've allowed a largely open border, contrary to our own laws; encouraged illegal immigration with "sanctuary" policies in some major cities; dangled once-plentiful jobs as lures; discouraged policies that require assimilation into the language and culture of America; turned a blind eye while some 13 million illegals live and work here -- in broad daylight, yet in the shadows; and passing it all off as "compassion."
It is, of course, the opposite of compassion.
Tacitly, and often openly, inviting illegal immigrants to risk their lives over treacherous desert to toil for wages many of us might find beneath us is, in legal terms, creating an "attractive nuisance."
American immigration policy is one of wanton negligence. Shame on us. People like Richard Krentz -- and the work-starved illegals he once reached out to -- are dying because of it.
As Bob Dane of the Federation for American Immigration Reform notes, we're hanging out two contradictory signs: Help Wanted and Keep Out.
A new organization, Catholics for a Moral Immigra-tion Policy, even argues that illegal immigration is, in fact, immoral on a number of levels, including: encouraging law-breaking; flooding low-income communities with job-seekers; draining brains and brawn from developing countries; and corrupting churches into acquiescing to it.
The answer is not whatever new amnesty plan that may emerge from Washington (after having amnesty rejected utterly by the American people just three years ago). The answer is enforcing the laws on our books: preventing illegals from working illegally and jumping in front of legal immigrants who play by the rules and wait years to get in; and securing our border and promoting a legal, orderly and safe immigration process that serves this country's national interests and secures the rights and safety of those who participate in it.
The national media will tell you that enforcement of our laws isn't compassionate. Meanwhile, under the lawless status quo, the tragedies and dead bodies pile up along our border.

Emergency Room Treatment for Illegal Aliens in Las Vegas Costs Taxpayers $2 Million per Month
Wednesday, January 27, 2010, 1:18 PM EST - posted on NumbersUSA


Las Vegas Unversity Medical Center
A report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal found that illegal aliens receiving dialysis treatment were costing the hospital more than $2 million per month. Nevada taxpayers are forced to pay for a situation that the report says "continues to worsen."

Officials say the lack of enforcing immigration laws is making a bad situation worse as the University Medical Center in Las Vegas looks to face a $70 million budgetary shortfall in 2010. They say attempts to encourage illegal aliens to receive the treatment in their home countries hasn't worked.

"The cost to our taxpayers is astronomical," said Lawrence Weekly, a Clark County commissioner and chairman of the UMC board of hospital trustees. "Many people are justifiably outraged. If this kind of thing goes on, we might have to close our doors. But we're governed by federal law on this issue so some way the federal government has to help us out. We just can't stand by and let people die in the streets. We wouldn't want that on our conscience."

The article says that a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said over the summer that Reid would push for increased funding for hospitals that helped illegal aliens, but the funding hasn't materialized.

AN AMERICAN SEES & SPEAKS – Comments Posted on Washington Post

One of the reasons anchor babies are such a burden to the US is the practice of chain migration. That baby gets to bring in his parents, siblings and in some cases grand parents and no one needs to be economically "sponsored" so all are eligible for the welfare state bennies. Parkland Hospital in Dallas recently went bankrupt due to the maternity ward where most, perhaps all the babies were born to illegals and their cost of care never paid. While it is quite understandable that some one from a poor country or any country for that matter might like to give the gift of citizenship to their offspring, it is the sole right of the sovereign nation to grant that gift. We exploit the poor and undocumented and it is time to stop. Your cheap cleaning lady or lawn guy is very expensive for the nation as a whole. Pay a living wage for what you don't want to do and the problem may, in part, disappear.

Nearly 25 Percent of Children Younger Than 5 Are Latino, Census Says


By N.C. AizenmanWashington Post Staff Writer

Thursday, May 1, 2008; A02
Hispanics, the nation's largest and fastest-growing minority group, now account for about one in four children younger than 5 in the United States, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates released today.
The increase from almost one in five in 2000 has broad implications for governments, communities and schools nationwide, suggesting that the meteoric rise in the Hispanic population that demographers forecast for mid-century will occur even sooner among younger generations.
"Hispanics have both a larger proportion of people in their child-bearing years and tend to have slightly more children," said Jeffrey S. Passel, senior demographer at the Pew Hispanic Center and co-author of a recent study predicting that the Latino population will double from 15 percent today to 30 percent by 2050.
"So this means that in five years, a quarter of the 5- to 9-year-olds will be Hispanic, and in 10 years a quarter of the 10- to 14-year-olds will be Hispanic. It's just going to move up through the age distribution with each successive cohort being slightly more Hispanic," Passel said.
Hispanics account for more than half of children younger than 5 in New Mexico and California, where their share of the overall state population is 44 and 36 percent, respectively. In Texas, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado, about one-third or more of children younger than 5 are Hispanic.
The figures are less dramatic but still notable in Virginia and Maryland. In both states, Hispanics account for 11 percent of children younger than 5 -- and 7 and 6 percent of the overall population, respectively.
Although the census is not scheduled to release county-level data until later in the year, statistics compiled by Washington-area school systems indicate that the number of youngsters who are Latino is even higher in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. In Montgomery County, for instance, Hispanics make up 14 percent of residents and 22 percent of public school students. In Fairfax County, Hispanics account for 13 percent of residents and 17 percent of students.
The census figures showed a slight drop in immigration to the United States by Hispanics from July 1, 2006, to July 1, 2007, vs. the previous 12-month period. That suggests that the U.S. economic slowdown might have had some impact on immigration. For almost a decade, U.S. births have accounted for a far greater share of the growth in the Hispanic population than immigration.
Nonetheless, many researchers warn that the higher-than-average poverty rate of U.S.-born Latino children and the fact that many are raised by immigrant parents pose particular challenges to their education and integration.

"Based on what we know, many in this population may not be growing up speaking English in their homes," said Margie McHugh, co-director of the National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy at the Migration Policy Institute in Washington. In a recent study, McHugh found that 75 percent of limited-English-proficient students in Los Angeles County elementary schools were born in the United States.
Adding to the difficulties facing such children, McHugh said, is the fact that Latinos are increasingly moving to states and counties where they have not been historically concentrated.
"Because of the accountability requirements in the No Child Left Behind law, many of these states and localities have already been thinking hard about how to serve these children," she said. "But the gap between the services they have in place and what's needed is quite large."
The shifts in focus and resources that local school systems make to address the needs of growing Latino and immigrant populations can arouse concern and resentment among other residents, said Audrey Singer, a researcher with the Brookings Institution who has studied new immigrant gateway states.
"Schools are often on the frontline for debate in communities because they are on the leading edge of change," Singer said. "People who might not otherwise have an opinion take notice when the schools begin to change."
Yet the increasing number of Latino youths might enrich mainstream U.S. culture in unexpected ways, Singer said.
"A lot of popular culture comes from youth culture, and we already see the effect of the newest demographic waves in current music and new media," she said.
The rise in the Latino population has been accompanied by significant, if slower, growth among African Americans and Asians. Minorities account for one-third of the U.S. population, a similar portion of Virginia's population and 42 percent of Maryland's.
The District, which the census treats as a state, stands in marked exception to that trend. As once-affordable neighborhoods have gentrified over the past decade, the city has been losing black residents while gaining white newcomers, steadily diminishing its longtime status as a majority-black metropolis.
The latest census figures confirm that pattern, with non-Hispanic blacks accounting for 54 percent of the District's population in 2007, compared with 60 percent in 2000. Meanwhile, the number of non-Hispanic whites increased from 28 to 33 percent in that period, while the Hispanic and non-Hispanic Asian population remained at 8 and 3 percent, respectively.

Anchor Baby Power
La Voz de Aztlan has produced a video in honor of the millions of babies that have been born as US citizens to Mexican undocumented parents. These babies are destined to transform America. The nativist CNN reporter Lou Dobbs estimates that there are over 200,000 "Anchor Babies" born every year whereas George Putnam, a radio reporter, says the figure is closer to 300,000. La Voz de Aztlan believes that the number is approximately 500,000 "Anchor Babies" born every year.
The video below depicts the many faces of the "Anchor Baby Generation". The video includes a fascinating segment showing a group of elementary school children in Santa Ana, California confronting the Minutemen vigilantes. The video ends with a now famous statement by Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez of the University of Texas at Austin.

ORLANDO SENTINEL

Robyn Shelton Sentinel Medical Writer March 11, 2007


Medical clinics that serve the poor in Florida are being overwhelmed by illegal immigrants and other uninsured women needing prenatal services, creating a looming crisis that already has forced at least one health department to close its doors to pregnant patients. Two groups that serve the poor in Orange County say they are booked to capacity for prenatal services, with women waiting up to five weeks to get an initial appointment at the busiest locations. That's the good news. Mark S. Williams worries that local women may not get care in the future because providers do not have the staff, money or ability to meet the rising need. In Orange County, the number of women seeking prenatal services from these groups has climbed 65 percent since 2002. "We are at our limit; we have to begin to look at how we can just maintain what we have or reduce the number of patients that we see for prenatal care," said Williams, chief executive officer of Community Health Centers Inc. "If the growth in the region continues -- and we have no reason to believe that it won't -- there will be patients who just aren't going to be seen." Counties throughout Central Florida are reporting an increasing demand for prenatal services, but Orange stands out for its sheer volume. Its main providers for poor women are the Orange County Health Department and Community Health Centers, a nonprofit organization that offers a variety of health services. Combined, the agencies treated more than 6,300 pregnant women in 2006, up from about 3,800 in 2002. But doctors say the number of individual women doesn't tell the whole story. Each patient needs ongoing care during her pregnancy, accounting for a combined 36,292 prenatal visits to both agencies in 2006, an 84 percent increase from 19,718 in 2002. The Orange County Health Department, which has a higher patient load, has opened two additional sites for obstetrics care in recent months and is trying to recruit more nurse practitioners. "Almost as soon as we open [a new location], we're fully booked with appointments," said Patricia Nolen, the department's program director for women's health. Yet the problem is not simply the rising numbers -- it's that more patients are uninsured. Many are illegal immigrants, who do not qualify for government coverage for the poor through Medicaid. But there's also a growing number of uninsured U.S. citizens who earn slightly too much to qualify for Medicaid but too little to buy private insurance. As a result, providers are treating more women but getting paid for a smaller proportion of their clients. For example, about 80 percent of the prenatal patients at the Orange County Health Department were covered by Medicaid in the past, leaving about 20 percent who were uninsured. Today, the breakdown is closer to 50-50, said Dr. Kevin Sherin, Health Department director. Statewide, an estimated 650,000 women of childbearing age have no coverage. "There's a significant number of moms who cannot access health insurance for a variety of reasons," Sherin said. This creates crushing budget demands for centers that serve these women. Demand keeps growing Danielle Phillips, 21, is among the thousands of prenatal patients at the Orange County Health Department. She works in a clothing store and didn't have medical insurance when she became pregnant. Phillips now is covered by Medicaid and grateful for the care she receives at a clinic near her home. "I really like it there," she said. "I was surprised at how well they take care of you." It's expensive to provide the services. This fiscal year, the Orange County Health Department expects to bring in about $3 million from a variety of funding sources to cover women's-health expenditures. However, the total cost of the services is expected to run about $3.4 million, creating a $400,000 shortfall. Officials say illegal immigrants are contributing to the crisis because of their growing numbers and lack of insurance because of restrictions on the use of Medicaid for non-U.S. citizens. The Pew Hispanic Center estimates there are about 850,000 illegal immigrants in Florida and about 12 million nationwide. In Florida, these women can get short-term Medicaid coverage for prenatal care while their paperwork is processed, but they quickly drop off the rolls when they do not have valid Social Security numbers and required documentation. As a result, the bulk of their pregnancy care is uncovered. One way to gauge the growing burden in Florida is through the state's "emergency Medicaid deliveries" that cover births by non-U.S. citizens. Many of these emergency patients are undocumented, and state statistics show a fourfold increase in their numbers since 1996. That year, Medicaid paid for 4,556 emergency deliveries at a cost of more than $10 million in state and federal funds. By 2006, the number surged to 20,099 deliveries costing more than $85 million. Turning away patients Illegal immigrants are just part of the prenatal-care picture. The overall population boom in Florida has been straining the system for years, said Ann Davis, immediate past president of the Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions. The coalitions are private, nonprofit groups that help poor, pregnant women and their babies throughout the state. Davis said Healthy Start's budget was flat for years, and even with an increase last year, there aren't enough funds. "For years, we did not have any increases, and yet, the fastest-growing segment of our population are young women of child-bearing age," Davis said. "This is not rocket science. There's not going to be enough" money to serve everyone. Many counties are sounding the alarm about the problems they see down the road. In Okaloosa County, the crisis already forced the Health Department to stop offering prenatal care in July. The small county went from an average of 30 to 40 prenatal cases each month to more than 130 a month in recent years. Dr. Karen Chapman, the department director, said her local Healthy Start coalition was providing about $167,000 annually to help pay for prenatal services, but the actual cost was almost four times that much. After covering the shortfall for years, the department couldn't do it anymore. Chapman said poor women now must travel to clinics in other counties or see private doctors willing to put them on payment plans. In the end, she said, some women surely are falling through the cracks. "It was a very painful and difficult and traumatic decision for us," Chapman said, "but even as a government agency, we still have to make payroll and pay our bills. It's just a real tragic situation." A look at solutions In Orange County, advocates for the poor are pushing for a number of changes: The state could increase the income limits for Medicaid eligibility, as other states have done, so more poor women would qualify for coverage, said Linda Sutherland, executive director of the Orange County Healthy Start Coalition. Florida could fund prenatal care for illegal immigrants. Williams said this would be a cost-saver in the long run because women with inadequate prenatal care are more likely to have low-birthweight babies, who often require expensive hospitalizations. Taxpayers end up footing the bill for their care one way or another, he said. "The immigrant issue is a tough one that people aren't going to agree on," Williams said. "I think there are moral issues here, and there's a right thing to do, but you don't even have to feel that way to see that there are also economic issues." Private doctors could bring much-needed manpower to the system. In Brevard County, the Health Department has recruited local obstetricians to work for hourly wages in its clinics. Dr. Heidar Heshmati, department director, said the system is financially viable because the hourly compensation is slightly less than what the department can bring in through Medicaid reimbursements. Until something is done, medical providers expect to grapple regularly with the prenatal-care demands of their communities. More closings are possible. "It's clearly one of the options that [groups] have to keep in mind," said Dr. William Sappenfield, state epidemiologist with the Florida Department of Health. "They do have a limited budget, so they have to figure out how to provide services, and if they spend money in one direction," then less remains for other needs.

GEORGE WILL - ARGUMENT TO BE MADE ABOUT ANCHOR BABIES = 18 YEARS WELFARE FOR MEXICO

MEXICANOCCUPATION.blogspot.com

“A recent Pew poll indicated that a very large percentage of Americans of Mexican descent regard themselves as Mexicans. Not Mexican-Americans, not American-Mexicans. Just Mexicans.”


What this article does not address is the racist aspects of ANCHOR BABIES. We are Mexico’s WELFARE and PRISON SYSTEM. Yearly Mexico sends thousands of pregnant women over our borders to give birth a gringo expense. One in five births in Los Angeles are ILLEGALS. It doesn’t stop there. This Mexican mom will then collect 18 years of welfare for this child. More for every child she gives birth to, which is why birth rates for illegals is STAGGERING.

Currently $40 - $50 billion of the American economy is shifted back to Mexico, making it one of the largest revenue streams for the highly corrupt Mexican government.

La Raza considers the staggering ANCHOR birthing system a major component of the Mexican occupation. While these children will NOT CONSIDER THEMSELVES AMERICAS, BUT MEXICANS BORN ON GRINGO SOIL, WHICH THEY ARE INDOCTRINATED INTO THINKING IS REALLY NORTHERN MEXICO.

An argument to be made about immigrant babies and citizenship

By George F. Will

Sunday, March 28, 2010; A15

A simple reform would drain some scalding steam from immigration arguments that may soon again be at a roiling boil. It would bring the interpretation of the 14th Amendment into conformity with what the authors of its text intended, and with common sense, thereby removing an incentive for illegal immigration.
To end the practice of "birthright citizenship," all that is required is to correct the misinterpretation of that amendment's first sentence: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside." From these words has flowed the practice of conferring citizenship on children born here to illegal immigrants.
A parent from a poor country, writes professor Lino Graglia of the University of Texas law school, "can hardly do more for a child than make him or her an American citizen, entitled to all the advantages of the American welfare state." Therefore, "It is difficult to imagine a more irrational and self-defeating legal system than one which makes unauthorized entry into this country a criminal offense and simultaneously provides perhaps the greatest possible inducement to illegal entry."
Writing in the Texas Review of Law and Politics, Graglia says this irrationality is rooted in a misunderstanding of the phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof." What was this intended or understood to mean by those who wrote it in 1866 and ratified it in 1868? The authors and ratifiers could not have intended birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants because in 1868 there were and never had been any illegal immigrants because no law ever had restricted immigration.
If those who wrote and ratified the 14th Amendment had imagined laws restricting immigration -- and had anticipated huge waves of illegal immigration -- is it reasonable to presume they would have wanted to provide the reward of citizenship to the children of the violators of those laws? Surely not.
The Civil Rights Act of 1866 begins with language from which the 14th Amendment's citizenship clause is derived: "All persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States." (Emphasis added.) The explicit exclusion of Indians from birthright citizenship was not repeated in the 14th Amendment because it was considered unnecessary. Although Indians were at least partially subject to U.S. jurisdiction, they owed allegiance to their tribes, not the United States. This reasoning -- divided allegiance -- applies equally to exclude the children of resident aliens, legal as well as illegal, from birthright citizenship. Indeed, today's regulations issued by the departments of Homeland Security and Justice stipulate:
"A person born in the United States to a foreign diplomatic officer accredited to the United States, as a matter of international law, is not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. That person is not a United States citizen under the 14th Amendment."
Sen. Lyman Trumbull of Illinois was, Graglia writes, one of two "principal authors of the citizenship clauses in 1866 act and the 14th Amendment." He said that "subject to the jurisdiction of the United States" meant subject to its "complete" jurisdiction, meaning "not owing allegiance to anybody else." Hence children whose Indian parents had tribal allegiances were excluded from birthright citizenship.
Appropriately, in 1884 the Supreme Court held that children born to Indian parents were not born "subject to" U.S. jurisdiction because, among other reasons, the person so born could not change his status by his "own will without the action or assent of the United States." And "no one can become a citizen of a nation without its consent." Graglia says this decision "seemed to establish" that U.S. citizenship is "a consensual relation, requiring the consent of the United States." So: "This would clearly settle the question of birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens. There cannot be a more total or forceful denial of consent to a person's citizenship than to make the source of that person's presence in the nation illegal."
Congress has heard testimony estimating that more than two-thirds of all births in Los Angeles public hospitals, and more than half of all births in that city, and nearly 10 percent of all births in the nation in recent years, have been to mothers who are here illegally. Graglia seems to establish that there is no constitutional impediment to Congress ending the granting of birthright citizenship to those whose presence here is "not only without the government's consent but in violation of its law."

I have since done a 180 on many long held beliefs; I am no longer a bleeding-heart, tree-hugging liberal- not that I fit the mold of a conservative either…I do expect any candidate worthy of my vote, regardless of party affiliations, to be an American first that does not bow at the alter of politically correct while seeking votes and unlimited power, nor ignores our citizens while providing their campaign contributors with cheap labor (landscapers, highway and home construction companies, hospitality and fast food entities, etc…the people that run these anti-American companies do not live next door to drug/human traffickers—they have no idea what fearing for your life really means); I no longer trust my government to protect our citizens. Yet, “special interest” groups/advocates have labeled me a “racist” while they only promote and protect those that look themselves…they are the racists determined to destroy our country with the help of those we have elected!

Yes, the 14th Amendment was indeed designed to prevent discrimination--against former slaves and their childre4n. The language of the amendment certainly seems to include illegals' spawn, and SCOTUS has affirmed this interpretation in the past.

That makes it a loophole. After all, a loophole is a law with consequences--often at a later time than its crafting--unintended by its framers, and often perceived as unfair.

I'm pretty confident that if closing this loophole were put to a national referendum, you'd get at least 2/3 of Americans favoring closing it, so that only the children of at least one American citizen would get automatic citizenship.

However, I'm equally confident that an amendment repealing this loophole wouldn't pass, because of both parties' need to pander to Mexicans with American citizenship--by which I mean people who vote for politicians and laws that help Mexicans specifically, regardless of whether they're good for America. A recent Pew poll indicated that a very large percentage of Americans of Mexican descent regard themselves as Mexicans. Not Mexican-Americans, not American-Mexicans. Just Mexicans.

So we're stuck with the 14th, like it or not. Historically it has been responsible for the Latino ethnic group swelling from .5% of the population in 1940 to 14% today. That's one out of seven.

Never has America's cultural composition been changed so much by so many.

And the American public was never consulted about this shift. It's not like the Mexican Embassy was asked to put on a dog and pony show to the American people during the Eisenhower era, and then have the American people vote on whether we'd like America to shift from one in two hundred Latinos to one in seven--and to have that one in sever come almost exclusively from Mexico's poorest, least educated cohort.

And then some people are shocked that we object to this being foisted upon us without us having any say-so in the matter.

Especially since many are not assimilating. Why should they? Empuje uno si quiere hablar en espaƱol. You can now live your entire life in the Southwest of the United States without having to learn one word of English.

Americans from outside the Southwest are often incredulous when I say that. But you can visit Quebec and meet many who don't speak any English. Our situation is coming to resemble that more and more.

REALITY ON MEXICAN ILLEGALS ABOVE THE LAW:

old sarge said: “We need clear rules that lay out a path to residency and citizenship that are nondiscriminatory and uphold the American ideal. When we appropriately codify those policies and fund their enforcement, then we can effectively address illegal immigration”

Let me allay your worries, sarge. We already have all of that. Today.

You want to come here? You apply for a visa. You want to work here and have a visa? You apply for a green card. You have a green card and want citizenship? You apply and go through a lengthy process. Then you go to a naturalization ceremony, swear allegiance to America, sing the national anthem, and you’re a citizen.

Last year I attended the naturalization ceremony for a good friend from Russia. She hadn’t thought she’d be moved by the ceremony, but she was. In the hall with her were people from 67 other countries who all became citizens that day. They were of all races and all major religions. I perceived no discrimination—not the slightest.

The only problem I see is that we also have citizens of other countries living here who skipped all these steps. There’s a clear, nondiscriminatory path for them too: go home and apply for a visa. Then wait your turn.

The Russian lady has a degree in mathematics from a major university and is an art therapist. I have a neighbor from Germany who just got his green card. He’s a PhD in physics who’s a software engineer. His wife is an African lady who’s a stay at home mom. Two other friends are a married couple from Belarus who are both programmers. She won a visa lottery. He’s working at Google now. Another friend from India got his citizenship last year. He’s a program manager at Oracle.

These people are Christian, Jewish, Hindu, white and brown. What they have in common is skills America needs. What we don’t need is unskilled laborers. We have an over 20% unemployment rate for Americans like this already.

Legalizing citizens of other countries who didn’t follow these procedures is a slap in the fact to honest immigrants like my friends, and to blue-collar Americans like many of my relatives.

And why are they here? The “job magnet” argument is only made by people who know nothing about other countries. Mexico has a population crisis. Its population has exploded from 20 million in 1940 to over 100 million in 2000—almost entirely from irresponsible procreation, under the influence of a primitive religion.

Not only is this population explosion not our fault, we’re being enablers by letting Mexico “solve” this through tossing its excess peasant class (where are the Mexcan engineers and doctors we could actually use?) onto our shores. Mexico desperately needs to adopt China’s “one child” policy. It sure won’t do that as long as it can export its problems here.

Meanwhile la reconquista (the reconquest of the Southwest by Mexico) is proceeding nicely. The only ethnic group American leftist have nothing but contempt for (Anglo Americans) is being displaced, along with blacks, who many Mexicans have a racist hatred for. The LA Times has even reported that Mexican gangs have been ethnically cleansing blacks from some neighborhoods there.

But apparently sympathy for blacks is yesterday’s news for today’s trendy leftist, along with sympathy for American working-class whites—you know, the guys whose wages have been crushed by competition from illegals, but it’s OK because the crushed guys are white, so they deserve it? Because some of their great-great-great grandparents kept slaves?

And I do have a solution for the 12 million ? illegals currently here: a universal biometric ID system for everyone in the country that you have to interface with to get a job, deal with the government, wire money out of the country, you name it.

Because if we make it impossible to navigate in our society without this ID, most of those who don’t have it will leave voluntarily, the same way they came.

Can’t get any less discriminatory than that. Such a system will deal with illegals from, say, Iceland exactly the same as those from El Salvador. And it’s fair to all Americans of every ethnicity—especially to the working poor, with many whites, blacks and Latinos in their ranks.

BTW, racerdoc raised the issue of the cash economy that’s off the grid, and also of verification, and argues that we should go after the employers of illegals first.

I agree that those who hire illegals are the villains here (along with criminal illegals of course). A universal biometric ID will catch hirers along with hirees. And making the ID required for interacting with the government in any way will catch many of those working off the grid. Some will remain, but we can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. As for verification—that’s where the “biometric” comes in. Fujitsu has a system that reads the pattern of veins inside your hand. You can’t fake that, even with plastic surgery.

AN AMERICAN SEES & SPEAKS - Obama's Open Borders Plan

Jenn AN AMERICAN SEES & SPEAKS

It won't have been covered by the Washington Post, but on Saturday, a rancher in Arizona, by the name of Robert Krentz was out checking his herd. He came across an illegal alien, who claimed to be injured. Krentz offered to help him, and contacted his brother on his cell phone, asking him to phone for an ambulance, and gave him his location. The illegal alien shot and killed Krentz, as well as his dog.

In that area of Arizona, near Douglas, it's been reported that since the talks of amnesty starting up again, more illegals have been heading over the border. Obama has gutted the budget for the increases in border patrol agents that were promised, and he has also gutted the funding for a border fence. Janet Napolitano claims our border is secure. The blood of Robert Krentz is on Napolitano's, Obama's, McCain's Reid's and every other amnesty proponent's hands. Krentz's wife and children have lost a husband and father.

We need to stop providing birthright citizenship to the children of illegals, we need to start deporting illegals, and construct a physical barrier at the border. This insanity has to end.

"ObamaCare: Magnet for Illegal Immigration" by Rep. Ed Royce



Washington, Mar 26 -


The following oped by Rep. Ed Royce appeared in today's FlashReport:



This weekend, Congress held a marathon session debating health care reform. The Democrat Leadership's goal was to get a health care bill through at any cost, making backroom deals and abusing the legislative process to get it done.



One faction of the Democrat Party held off on supporting the health care legislation in order to get an amnesty bill to the House floor. After meeting with pro-amnesty legislators, President Barack Obama pledged to do everything in his power to get immigration legislation moving in Congress. This pledge coincided with the release of an amnesty legislation outline pushed by Senators Charles Schumer and Lindsey Graham. And open borders activists congregated on the steps of the Capitol building the Sunday of the vote to remind the President of his promise.



President Obama claims his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants but how can you promise illegal immigrants won't be covered if the bill doesn't contain enforcement mechanisms to verify whether an individual is here illegally? The answer, you can't.



California's health care system is already heavily impacted by the cost of illegal immigration. Roughly $1.4 billion a year in taxpayer dollars goes toward providing health care to illegal immigrants in our state. Expanding government control of our health care system only compounds the problems of illegal immigration and health care costs. Additionally, there is nothing in the bill to monitor whether illegal immigrants are using our health care system. Most government programs use the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program to prevent access. But once again, there is no enforcement mechanism in the legislation. Illegal immigrants will be able to access all the services provided by this health care bill.



Although the bill bars illegal immigrants from using the health exchange, there is no requirement to check anyone's immigration status. Without any enforcement, it becomes as ineffective as our immigration laws.



The government takeover of healthcare also vastly expands the number of people eligible for Medicaid. While illegal immigrants are theoretically barred from this program, last year the Democrat Leadership eroded the Medicaid verification process. Under S-CHIP reauthorization, a person now only has to provide a Social Security number and name in order to get benefits. Before this change, documentation like birth certificates and driver's licenses were required to ensure that the person enrolling was the same person whose Social Security number and name was being submitted. I supported an effort to stop this change but it was defeated.



The Social Security Administration receives about 8 million mismatches from the IRS every year, for reports filed under names that do not match the Social Security numbers. This is why I supported efforts requiring the use of identity documents under the House health care bill, but again this was defeated by the Democrat Majority.



So what does this all mean? It means that the health care legislation the Democrats just passed will be a magnet for more illegal immigration. It means that amnesty will be pushed with as much vigor as the health care bill, creating another inducement to cross U.S. borders. At the time of the passage of the 1986 amnesty, the number of illegal immigrants who took advantage of it went from what was thought to be only 1.5 million to a total 4 million. This time around we are talking about legalizing around 12 million who are here illegally, but in the end how many will it be?

Steve Poizner's book about Mount Pleasant High School offends subjects
Timed to boost his campaign to be the GOP gubernatorial nominee, it instead sparks an uproar among the San Jose school's students, teachers and parents.
By Michael Rothfeld
April 3, 2010
Reporting from San Jose

At Mount Pleasant High School on Thursday morning, students practiced guitar in a courtyard and boned up on math before class. Parents met with the principal, and teens filtered in the doors. Faculty played an April Fool's joke, announcing that the school year had been extended.

But amid the routine, tension rippled across the campus, set near the edge of a quiet San Jose neighborhood, over a book by Steve Poizner, a candidate in the Republican gubernatorial primary.

Poizner, who spent a year teaching at the school, donated thousands of dollars to help its students and recorded his experiences in the book, has been told he is no longer welcome there. He touts the publication in his campaign to show his commitment to fixing a failed education system, but many who teach and learn at Mount Pleasant say it's a caricature of their community intended to advance his political ambitions.

Throughout the pages of "Mount Pleasant," released Thursday, Poizner sprinkles details about his guest stint at what he characterizes as a rough urban school starting in late 2002, two years after he sold his high-tech company for $1 billion.

He was relieved, he writes, to find his Lexus safe in the parking lot after his first visit. He built a lesson around the corporate history of Kentucky Fried Chicken rather than that of Apple, thinking Col. Sanders would hold more relevance for the students than Steve Jobs.

He ruminates that the underprivileged and, often, uninterested teens on the fringe of Silicon Valley would never match the achievements of young people from his own affluent town of Los Gatos, in the heart of high-tech country.

Martha Guerrero is an associate principal who has worked at Mount Pleasant for 24 years and sent two children to the school, including a son now studying aerospace engineering at UC Irvine. She says Poizner exaggerated the school's problems to serve his narrative.

"My concern is that my community, my school, my family -- because we live here -- are being used," she said, and she fears the damage to the school's psyche will linger: "It makes it hard for students who come from here to go out there, because there is a belief that if they come from here, they may not be good enough."

Poizner writes that he had trouble engaging the school's young people, whose "wiring" and backgrounds were foreign to him.

"Were they all too busy ducking bullets to consider their careers?" he wonders. "I felt out of step -- a privileged brainiac who didn't know how to teach and had little understanding of his students' sensibilities."

Poizner was banned by the principal, Teresa Marquez, from going to the school to discuss the book last week after she decided Poizner's planned appearance there would have been political. Marquez was among 200 protesters who met him at a book signing in the area Thursday evening, and in an emotional confrontation, she said his students "were some of the brightest."

"And you made it seem like they were nothing," she said.

But Poizner told reporters that he had never written the students off.

"If you read the book, you'll see that I think that every student at Mount Pleasant High School . . . can and should excel, but the fact is many of 'em aren't," he said. "What I'm trying to do is shine some sunlight on all of this. The fact is, it does cause some people to bristle when they hear about some of the things that are wrong."

Earlier that day, the nearly 50-year-old campus, painted since Poizner taught there, seemed orderly and clean. So did the surrounding low- to middle-income neighborhood of single-story homes, most with neat lawns, at the foot of the Diablo Mountain range. A $30-million school upgrade, approved by voters, is slated to begin this year.


WHAT IS WRONG WITH A PICTURE OF ANY SCHOOL WHERE NEARLY 70% ARE MEXICAN, AND CAN HARDLY SPEAK ENGLISH? IT’S THE SAME ALL OVER THE COUNTRY! MEXICANS LOATHE LITERACY, ENGLISH AND THE AMERICAN CULTURE.
SANTEE


Mount Pleasant's student body of nearly 1,800 is 68% Latino, and about a quarter of its students have limited English proficiency, according to school statistics. Among parents, 18% have college degrees and 68% have finished high school.

Most of the students and teachers say they have so far read only portions of the book. Poizner's critics say that although the school does have gang members on campus, economic disadvantages and below-average test scores, the school is no worse -- and is, in fact, better -- than many others.

Mount Pleasant failed to meet state and federal goals for academic performance last year. In 2008, it ranked in the bottom half of high schools statewide but did better than most others with similar demographics, state statistics show. The 13% dropout rate for the 2008 graduating class was just below the state average.

Many students do not attend college, but some go to prestigious ones, despite Poizner's suggestion that most would do best in vocational school.

Such sentiments "kind of brought me down, because I have my own dreams," said Victor Noguera, 18. "He opens the door for other people to think bad about us. By him saying we're this gangster-infested school, it makes all of us seem negative. My dream is to go to Stanford, and I'm taking as many AP classes as I can."

Poizner, who badly trails former EBay chief Meg Whitman in his bid to become the Republican nominee for governor, coordinated the book's publication date with the announcement Thursday of his "education reform plan," which focuses on strengthening charter schools. He devotes a section of the book to charter schools, praising them as an escape valve for students from the kinds of problems he says he saw at Mount Pleasant.

In Poizner's year there, he mostly observed for one semester, then taught a class for about an hour a day in the second semester. He has returned for annual visits in his current post as California's insurance commissioner and has paid for student trips to Washington, D.C.

Some faculty members have rallied to Poizner's side. Todd Richards, whose American government class Poizner taught, said that although the book overlooked some positive elements, "everything in that book is real." He said some teachers, who would prefer to ignore the problems, had "really fanned the flames" and deprived students of a dialogue with the author.

"When you start denying other people an opportunity to hear a point of view, I think that's just poison to the civic discourse," Richards said. "It would have been a very neat thing for our students . . . and they were robbed of that."

Meanwhile, the book is in hot demand at the school library.

"I have probably 10 copies, and they're all gone," librarian Chris Evans said.

Janet Napolitano halts funding for virtual border fence
The virtual border fence was supposed to revolutionize US-Mexico border security. But delays and glitches led Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to freeze its funding Wednesday.

This undated picture provided by the US Customs and Border Protection shows a prototype of a tower for a virtual fence along the US- Mexico border at a test facility in Playas, N.M.

Los Angeles —
In May 2006, President George W. Bush touted the SBInet project as “the most technologically advanced border security initiative in American history.” The proposed "virtual border fence" along the US-Mexican border was to be a string of towers that would use cameras, radar, and ground sensors to see who was coming across in real time.
Now the project, which spent $2.4 billion between 2005 and 2009, has hit so many snags that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is freezing its funding.
“Not only do we have an obligation to secure our borders, we have a responsibility to do so in the most cost-effective way possible,” wrote DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in a press release Tuesday. “The system of sensors and cameras along the Southwest border known as SBInet has been plagued with cost overruns and missed deadlines.”
In early trials, technical problems and other snafus led to media reports that DHS and the Boeing Co., which held contracts to build two sections of the high-tech fence, might mothball the project.
Problems included software glitches, camera images affected by wind and rain, and radar that had trouble distinguishing sagebrush from camping migrants or animals.
Boeing officials admitted that the effort had been more challenging than they anticipated. The project, which was supposed to be handed over to the US Border Patrol in June 2007 was not accepted until December. At a congressional hearing, Richard Stana, Homeland Security and Justice Director for the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said that the first phase of the project "did not fully meet the user needs."
A shift in funding
Now – reportedly two days before the release of a GAO report that was said to criticize the project – Ms. Napolitano says that DHS will shift the funding.
It will redeploy $50 million of Recovery Act funding originally allocated to "commercially available security technology along the Southwest border, including mobile surveillance, thermal imaging devices, ultra-light detection, backscatter units, mobile radios, camera, and laptops for pursuit vehicles, and remote video surveillance system enhancements,” Napolitano’s statement said.
Critics of the virtual border fence project have been quick to respond.
“It’s a good thing they have finally acknowledged the obvious, that SBInet is a failure, and they are going to evaluate it,” says T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a professional labor union representing more than 17,000 US Border Patrol agents and support staff.
Mr. Bonner thinks that DHS needs to examine the entire premise of using technology at the border.
THE REAL OBAMA HOMELAND SECURITY = PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP FOR “UNREGISTERED VOTERS”:
“WE ALREADY DETECT MORE TRAFFIC OF ILLEGALS THAN WE CAN APPREHEND…”
“We already detect more traffic of illegals than we can apprehend, so we feel the money is better spent putting more boots on the ground than in looking at more technology," he says. "With more personnel cutbacks planned for next year, doesn’t this underline the need to rethink those?”
“DHS could have been more vigilant in oversight," Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security told NPR Wednesday, "but I can tell you there is no stomach or energy on this committee for this project continuing in its present form.”
Changes at the border
Other experts say that Napolitano’s actions are related to recent incidents at the border.
"Despite evidence of funding constraints at the DHS, Napolitano's actions signal a more deliberate effort by the agency to crack down on illegal immigration at the US-Mexican border in the wake of the shootings that took place in Ciudad Juarez on Saturday, leaving three individuals with ties to the US consulate dead,” says Catherine Wilson, an assistant professor of political science at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, who studies immigration.
On Wednesday, the State Department issued an advisory for US citizens traveling in Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey, and Matamoros, and has authorized the departure of family members of US government personnel in these areas, she notes.
The main question the public should be asking about a virtual border fence is whether the DHS is fully aware of the long-term performance of the security technologies involved, Dr. Wilson and others say.
“Will they, in fact, be more cost-effective than those technologies used in the past?" she asks. "Is this a good use of Recovery Act funding?"

ACCORDING TO SENATOR LAMAR SMITH OF TEXAS, WHEN CHALLENGING SO- CALLED “HOMELAND SECURITY = PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIPS” LA RAZA JANET NAPOLITANO, AS TO WHY OUR BORDERS ARE WIDE OPEN TO NARCOMEX, OBAMA HAS CUT ENFORCEMENT BY MORE THAN 60% IN ALL AREAS.
Obama soft on illegals enforcement

Arrests of illegal immigrant workers have dropped precipitously under President Obama, according to figures released Wednesday. Criminal arrests, administrative arrests, indictments and convictions of illegal immigrants at work sites all fell by more than 50 percent from fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2009.

The figures show that Mr. Obama has made good on his pledge to shift enforcement away from going after illegal immigrant workers themselves - but at the expense of Americans' jobs, said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the Republican who compiled the numbers from the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). Mr. Smith, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said a period of economic turmoil is the wrong time to be cutting enforcement and letting illegal immigrants take jobs that Americans otherwise would hold.
