Throw Needed Support Arpaio’s Way

Look – I think the Birther agenda is a dead issue. For my two cents I don’t believe Obama was born in Kenya; However I do believe when his Communist mommy married an Indonesian Muslim and moved to Indonesia that Obama became an Indonesian citizen. I believe Obama went to college on immigrant scholarships making it a problematic issue as to his citizenship status from having a Kenyan father and an Indonesian step-father and still be eligible for the Office of President.

 

I think the Birther agenda is a dead issue because there is no way Obama’s army of private lawyers with the support of the Lame Stream Media that any movement of actual discovery will occur until Obama is long out of Office. The whole thing about the Birther agenda is to get rid of that ineligible man who has been elected President. I am afraid that won’t happen during Obama’s Presidency. As a side note though the Benghazigate information is beginning to snowball and could lead to an Obama impeachment.

 

I know Hispanic-American citizens both by birth and by naturalization will rail against me; nevertheless I believe illegal immigration must be strictly enforced. I believe immigration reform should occur to make it easier for south of the border folks to work in the USA. BUT I have a huge problem with south of the border folks coming to America illegally to receive welfare, medical and educational benefits that lower income American citizens cannot access.

 

Now in believing this so strongly about immigration and also not being a huge fan of Obama’s Leftist “Change” agenda for American culture I admire people willing to buck the system and do the right thing even if it is NOT politically correct.

 

One such person is Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The County Sheriff that has managed a little bit of public scrutiny on Obama’s unverified citizenship path and an enforcer of illegal immigration laws set up to prevent illegal alien/immigrants for getting a toe-hold on American soil.

 

Arpaio won his County election in November 2012 but is as usual with Leftist agenda folks that election victory was irrelevant if the law provides an easy path for a recall election to nullify the duly appointed election. Chunks of money – as I type – are now going into the coffers of recall election proponents to remove an old Joe who enforces the law rather than create the law ex nihilo without or against Constitutional law.

 

Below is a plea for financial support for Sheriff Joe to mount a campaign to offset the recall Leftists working inside Maricopa County but probably getting boots on the ground and money from Leftist coffers outside of Maricopa.

I’ve written to you before about the effort to remove me from office, and I wanted to provide you a quick update.

A group of open borders extremists are right now paying for signatures from voters around Maricopa County in order to force a recall election against me. They have already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on this effort and it is paying off for them.

As misdirected and delusional as these people are, their efforts are gaining momentum. Just last week the local newspaper reported that they have collected well over half of the required signatures to force an election.

Their deadline is May 30th and we are now hearing that the recall organizers are going to dump $500,000 to $1,000,000 in the closing days to pay for the remaining signatures.

Why do they want to remove me from office? It’s quite simple. I have become the poster boy for the radical left because of my unwavering support and enforcement of our state and country’s immigration laws.

John, time is running out and I need your help today.

In order for me to continue fighting for our shared values, I need your immediate support.

Your donation of $25, $50, $100 or more will ensure my campaign has the resources it needs to fight back.

Every day, they are out there lying about me personally and about my record in order to dupe voters into signing their petition.

I certainly didn’t ask for this recall but you can bet I will not stand by and let a group of extremists overturn last year’s election and throw me out of office.

If they are successful I’m going to have the toughest re-election campaign in my career. In fact, because of the nature of recall elections, political experts predict I could very well lose the election.

I must have the necessary resources to stop this recall effort and that’s why I’m reaching out to you today. By acting now we can stop them from reaching their goal. Will you help me? 

I know with your help we can stop this recall dead in its tracks. I won’t back down from doing the job I was elected to do. I swore an oath to uphold, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and no group of thugs or “community activists” will intimidate me from enforcing all of our laws.

We are now in the closing days of this fight. I hope you will make one more small sacrifice and contribute to my campaign to stop this recall today.

The stakes have never been higher. I would not ask for your help if I didn’t think it was absolutely necessary to defeat these extremists.

I hope you will join me today.

 

Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Maricopa County, Arizona

 

P.S. Please don’t delete this email. Any amount you can give today will help us stop this effort to remove me from office. I’m not going to sit idly by while these radical groups organize for my defeat. After you make a contribution, please forward this email to at least five of your friends or family members who stand with me in upholding the Rule of Law. Thank you!

No Reward For Illegals

 

By Justin O. Smith

From both sides of the political aisle, Republican and Democrat alike, Americans are being treated like second class citizens with the sole purpose in life to meet the needs of illegal aliens, “undocumented workers”, who have entered these United States illegally. We have already been forced to endure President Obama’s refusal to uphold current immigration law, as he moved forward and circumvented Congress with his “Dream Act”, which is suspect at best due to its reliance on the illegal immigrants’ word to establish when they first arrived in America; and, since January 2013 to the present, Americans are now once again hearing a host of politicians, especially the new breed of Republicans such as Senator Marco Rubio, joining the Washington establishment Old Guard Republicans, such as Speaker John Boehner, in a new move towards nothing less than a poorly disguised amnesty for these illegals!

Too many Americans are too willing to view a plan suggested by both Obama and Rubio as a viable fix for our illegal alien problem. This plan calls for the illegal aliens to come forward and apply for a provisional visa, apply for a green card after eight years, then apply for U.S. citizenship after five more years, they also pay fines and back taxes. And after passing a citizenship test they will become U.S. citizens.

Notice that this process takes 13 years total. These politicians have purposely planned this, because the Congressional Budget Office scores the effect of any bill on its cost over a ten year period, and these Republicans and Democrats do not want the American people to understand the enormous cost to the taxpayer that will be attached to giving citizenship to 30 million people at once, as these illegals will also be bringing along their extended family members.

This plan amounts to amnesty because and although these illegal immigrants will technically go to the back of the line; they will still be remaining here in the U.S., ahead of millions of immigration applicants who applied legally. These illegals will receive all the services and benefits the U.S. offers despite what the administration states to the contrary, including Obamacare, as they remain a drag rather than a boost to the U.S. economy; far too many of this current crop of illegals are poorly educated, unskilled or semi-skilled and on the low end of the earnings scale, and they end up with little choice other than applying for social services and welfare.

A 1930 State Department directive provided that: “If the consular officer believes that the applicant may probably be a public charge at any time, even during a considerable period subsequent to his arrival, he must refuse the visa”. And now, today, we see the Obama administration giving public service announcements inside Mexico that explain how to obtain welfare and food stamps in the U.S.!

Many ultra-liberals/leftists such as Kirsten Powers, Fox News analyst, assert that people used to just show up at Ellis Island and become U.S. citizens within hours, and this was the status quo until 1882; however, by 1917 immigration officials were screening out criminals, persons likely to become a public charge, radicals and illiterates, and this policy intensified during the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 in Russia, due to fears of left-wing radicalism. By 1943 FDR was giving special consideration to Chinese immigrants, and by 1952 special provisions were given to refugees due to America’s failure to provide a significant haven for refugees from Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Powers and others fail to note that most of the U.S. immigration policy historically dealt only with legal immigration and all those trying to enter America legally, in conjunction with the American people’s later decisions that immigration did need to be controlled as our nation grew; very little focus was given to illegal immigration until the Eisenhower administration, except when General Black Jack Pershing was sent to control Mexican bandits along the border in the early 1900s.

Since January 2013 the U.S. Senate has been working on an immigration bill with a path to citizenship, which would also allow them to bring their relatives in the same manner of chain immigration provisions already existing in the 1965 Immigration Act. At the same time, Speaker John Boehner called their efforts “a big step in the right direction”, as he offered: “So I would think you’re likely to hear a lot more about immigration reform on the House side soon.”

Now, at a time when millions of Americans are still out of work or under-employed with 50 million on welfare, even Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) disappoints America by pandering to the Hispanic vote. He recently declared at CPAC that if the nation’s 30 million illegal immigrants (official lie states 11 million) want to work in America “then we will find a place for you.”

Although no limits have been placed on H2A farm visas, over half of the one million field workers are comprised of illegal immigrants. Without the visa some illegals are targets of abuse, but many of them prefer the freedom of movement afforded them by remaining illegal and not having to be tied to any one employer; while on the other hand, farmers get to pay lower wages and avoid a lengthy and costly process in order to acquire just one H2A worker. It is no wonder so many corporate dairy farms are springing up just miles from the Mexican border, as many privately owned dairies across the nation are being run out of business!

Confounding the issue, Republicans are now flailing about, as some of their more prominent members are suggesting that the 2012 election was lost largely due to the “unfriendly” immigration position of the Republican Party. If they accept this nonsense, then they may as well disband now and become Democrats. Hispanics believe in big government intruding into the lives of people and “helping”, as it taxes the wealthy heavily. And, although Hispanics are mostly social conservatives, the following illustrates that, by and large, two-thirds of this group will inevitably vote Democrat, regardless of any immigration amnesty granted by a Republican administration: Hispanic Vote- 1980 Jimmy Carter 56%, Ronald Reagan 35%/ 1984 Walter Mondale 61%, Ronald Reagan 37% (amnesty)/ 1988 Michael Dukakis 69%, George H.W. Bush 30%/ 1992 Bill Clinton 61%, George H.W. Bush 25%/ 1996 Bill Clinton 72%, Bob Dole 21%/ 2000 Al Gore 62%, George W. Bush 35% (proposed amnesty in 2004 and introduced a bill for amnesty January 2007 that was defeated)/ 2004 John Kerry 58%, George W. Bush 40%/ 2008 Barack Obama 67%, John McCain 31%/ 2012 Barack Obama 71%, Mitt Romney 27%.

Most Americans are not trying to keep any good, moral, law abiding immigrant out of our nation. By the very definition of “illegal”, these illegal aliens have disqualified themselves, as they protest in our streets demanding U.S. citizenship and constitutional rights that do not apply to them…And what nation except ours would even tolerate such insanity? Since most of the current influx of illegals is from our southern border, our borders must be secured before proceeding with any immigration reform in the House or the Senate.

Nothing good is certain to be found in this new amnesty approved by Obama, Democrats and a troubling number of Republicans. This is a compromise with the Devil and a president who has worked to destroy America’s culture by spending millions of dollars on “bilingual education” programs that discourage immigrants from learning English and American history… a president who has ordered amnesty for illegal aliens which has been rejected by both Congress and the American people more than eight times. Millions of new Democratic voters will be created overnight and foreign workers will cripple American workers’ job prospects and wreck the GOP’s future. To quote Ann Coulter at the recent CPAC: “If amnesty goes through, America becomes California, and no Republican will ever win another national election. The state that gave us Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan will never elect another Republican”. But more important and pertinent to this issue, Senator Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) words strike to the heart of the matter: “There is no moral or legal responsibility to reward someone who entered the country illegally”…. Secure the borders… Identify the illegal immigrants and deport them!

Leslie Sacks on Latino Immigrants


Immigration - Statue Liberty

John R. Houk

© May 6, 2012

 

Leslie J. Sacks has sent a post lauding the traditional Family Values that most recent Latino immigrants bring with them to America. Sacks is absolutely correct in this assessment. Many Latinos come to America with that old fashioned work ethic that once was a norm.

 

What Sacks fails to mention is that too often the Latino immigrants come to America illegally. This is unlike many of the immigrants from Europe even from the mid-1800s through the early 1900s.

 

I don’t have a problem with Latino immigrants to America as long as the immigration is legal. If legal immigration is maintained it would be a fantastic way to help screen out the few Latinos that are drug dealers or Latino gang members. The drug dealing and gang member Latinos are giving the hard working family value Latinos a bad image in America.

 

I am a huge proponent of finding a way to shut off the border between the USA and Mexico in able to make immigration a more legal rather than an illegal proposition. I also am a proponent that Latinos that desire to work in America should be given easier access to the job market in America. Definite immigration reform needs to occur for Latinos that view America as a job opportunity to cross the border legally along with the ability to travel freely back to Mexico.

 

The Latinos that desire to become citizens of America need to have an expectation to learn the English language. English is the language of America and the UK is considered the Mother Country not Spain. Our culture is Anglo-Saxon not Hispanic. The earlier immigrants to America rather Italian, German, Swedish or other non-English speaking people all learned English by their second generation. Latinos that desire citizenship should also learn English.

 

Well that is my two-cents. Below is Leslie J. Sacks’ thoughts on Latinos. Sacks’ thoughts are accurate; however I believe he leaves out the other side of the coin.

What we can all learn from our Latino community

Website: Strength and Tolerance

 

Latinos in the US are fiercely familial and loyal. Ironically, many Americans (most likely from non-recent immigration) find it strangely meaningful to separate themselves (and their spouses) from their respective families (and often childhood friends) and forge an independent albeit somewhat alienated existence. As a result many Americans evolve sophisticated business and financial lifestyles yet retain a certain emotional and spiritual immaturity. By contrast, a strong family unit is often visible in new immigrant groups, whether they are Vietnamese, Honduran, Korean or Indian.

 

The Latino community seems passionate about Latino America. Not necessarily a bad thing (La Raza excluded) as this energy will translate over time into strong support for the US as well. Witness the many members of the US military being respected and honored in strongly immigrant suburbs – being part of the US military is not usually disparaged in the local “barrios” as it is on the Berkeley campus.

 

In the area of recycling, Spanish speakers are past masters: Nothing much is thrown out; most of the second-hand cars, appliances, TVs and furniture live long and productive lives. In their way, these are very “green” communities. In Malibu and Beverly Hills, cars have a 3 year life expectancy – Nissans and Toyotas regularly reach 200,000 miles in East LA amongst construction workers and pool cleaners. America’s enormous disinterest in recycling, in maintaining existing electronics, distances our country from the rest of the world in a seemingly never-ending banquet of consumerism, with most happy to waste resources and expand garbage dumps with a frivolity absent in the Latino community.

 

Many see immigrants as outsiders who dilute the American tradition and culture. To the contrary, many immigrants may retain more family values (values that we seem to have lost), and may indeed be closer to the founding principles of this nation.

 

We have much to learn as a country, not only to teach; we are consumed in protecting our rights and largely ignorant of our responsibilities.

 

Immigrants tend to prioritize family and community over materialism and influence. Perhaps they are the splash of cold water we need to jolt us out of our complacency and away from a fragmented culture, an alienated, technological, iPad and iPhone existence.

Frankly I Like Newt’s Thoughts on Illegal Aliens


Newt Gingrich

 

John R. Houk

© December 3, 2011

 

Newt Gingrich has consistently risen in the polls to the point now the MSM calls Gingrich’s position a surge. In military terms a “surge” defeats the enemy by connecting to the people and backing up the populace with a deadly force strategy. This could mean Newt is prepared to connect with Conservatives and attack the enemies of Conservatives.

 

Michele Bachmann has failed to connect with voters which I find a shame. Mitt Romney is a RINO and a Mormon (Romney’s religion is his free choice, but I am a Christian). Rick Perry demonstrated leaning toward Christian faith regardless of Separation of Church and State extremists of the Left; however his debate skills show an inability to think quickly and clearly on his feet. I was becoming wildly supportive of Herman Cain; however whether accusations of sexual impropriety is true or not, he will be spending the rest of his time campaigning on his character rather than what 9-9-9 and other economic plans can do for America. If Cain is innocent of the public accusations by the various women I pray the MSM does the right thing and expose the use of defamation as a political weapon to shoot someone out of a campaign race. If Cain is complicit in the accusations then God is good for shining light in the darkness of a man with moral problems that might have been elected President. I do not consider the other candidates running for the GOP nomination as viable and yes that includes Libertarian minded Ron Paul – wow is that guy out of sync with the meaning of American Exceptionalism and American National Interests or what?

 

Newt may be a – listen to me now and forget some of the choices I made in the past kind-of-guy. A lot of hard Conservatives are pretty unforgiving of past Newt decisions morally and politically while forgetting he was one of the architects for the Contract with America that offset Left Wing Clintonesque policies that President Barack Hussein Obama has rammed down America’s throat. Clinton’s Senate Dem majority gave him enough clout to battle the House GOP majority with a tangible amount of the Contract with America becoming unfulfilled. Newt has proposed a 21st century Contract with America as part of his GOP platform to gain the nomination.

 

The 21st Century Contract with America will be much larger than the original, and will consist of four parts.

 

1. A set of legislative proposals to shift America back to job creation, prosperity, freedom, and safety.

 

Executive Summary

 

1.   Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering patients and doctors, not bureaucrats and politicians.

 

2.   Return to robust job creation with a bold set of tax cuts and regulatory reforms that will free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, as well as by reforming the Federal Reserve and creating a training requirement for extended federal unemployment benefits to encourage work and improve the quality of our workforce.

 

3.   Unleash America’s full energy production potential in oil, natural gas, coal, biofuels, wind, nuclear oil shale and more, creating jobs,  stimulating a sustainable manufacturing boom, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues, and bolstering national security.

 

4.   Save Medicare and Social Security by giving Americans more choices and tools to live longer, healthier lives with greater financial independence.

 

5.   Balance the federal budget by freeing job-creators to grow the economy, reforming entitlements, and implementing waste cutting and productivity improvement systems such as Lean Six Sigma to eliminate waste and fraud. Pass a balanced budget amendment to keep it balanced.

 

6.   Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.

 

7.   Revitalize our national security system to meet 21st century threats by restructuring and adequately funding our security agencies to function within a grand strategy for victory over those who seek to kill us or limit American power.

 

8.   Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessary obstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending towards urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, mental health and other conditions knowledge of the brain will help solve.

 

9.   Restore the proper role of the judicial branch by using the clearly delineated powers available to the president and Congress to correct, limit, or replace judges who violate the Constitution.

 

10. Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of power and responsibility from the federal government back “to the states, respectively, or to the people,” as the Constitution requires. Over the next year, state and local officials and citizens will be asked to identify the areas which can be transferred back home.   

 

2. A “Day One Plan” of Executive Orders to be signed on inauguration day to immediately transform the way the executive branch works.

 

Released Executive Orders to be signed on Day One:

 

1. Eliminate the thirty-nine White House “Czar” positions created during the current administration. The president does not have the authority to appoint bureaucrats to power who are not accountable to the Congress.

 

2. “Mexico City Policy” of Respect for Life. Reauthorize President Ronald Reagan’s policy – also known as the “Mexico City Policy”— to stop tax payer dollars from being used to fund or promote abortions in foreign countries.

 

3. Restore conscience clause protections for Healthcare Workers. No American working in a medical environment should be forced to perform any procedure that he or she finds morally or ethically objectionable based on religious teaching. This protection should include, but not be limited to abortion. Existing conscience clause protections need to be strengthened.

 

4. Respect Each Sovereign Nation’s Choice of its Capital. Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own Capital. Accordingly, the U.S. State Department should be instructed to respect the choice of each sovereign nation and place the American embassy in their Capital.  (Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in this regard. The people of Israel have designated Jerusalem as their capital. Yet the United States retains its embassy in Tel Aviv.)

 

5. End the Attorney General’s Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary.

 

6. The Keystone Pipeline

(Released: Nov. 17th, 2011)

Unleash American Energy by Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline. Instruct the State Department to approve a Presidential Permit immediately for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that will send 700,000 barrels of oil a day from Great Plains and Southwestern states to Gulf Coast refineries lower staggering energy prices, and create up to 120,000 American jobs.

 

VIDEO: Newt Gingrich on Canadian Oil Sands Pipeline at the Republican Jewish Coalition Lunch in Sioux City

 

 

3. A training program for the transition teams and the appointees who will lead the shift back to Constitutional, limited government (coming soon);

 

4. A system of citizen involvement to help us sustain grassroots support for change and help implement the change through 2021 (coming soon).

 

Newt even provides a link for voters to share their ideas to add the 21st century Contract with America. I hope Newt has a dedicated staff for sorting through these because I would hate to imagine how many Obamunists email nut job ideas. If Newt was a centrist or a Center-Right guy, his campaign program shows a significant move more to the Right.

 

As to relevance to current affairs with Newt and illegal aliens residing in the nation, I understand shared some specific thoughts on illegal alien policy. Many Conservatives criticized Newt’s thoughts on matriculating long term illegal aliens into documented aliens with a path toward citizenship particularly if a generational family situation has evolved. So before we go to Newt’s relatively new plan for illegal immigrants/aliens looks examine what Newt previously has published according to his 21st century Contract with America.

 

Point One of the Contract subsection 6 states:

 

Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.

 

The United States must control its border. It is a national security imperative.

 

Every nation has the right to control its border. Historically, every country that has been determined to control their border has been able to do so.

  

Controlling the border is a matter of resources and will.

 

 

This bill will waive every obstacle to controlling the border and would shift resources to achieve virtually 100% control by January 1, 2014. If necessary, we would move one-half of the 23,000 Washington-area Department of Homeland Security bureaucrats to the Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona borders.

 

At the same time we are controlling the border we should make it easier for honest people to visit America honestly.

 

Our current visa system is inefficient, expensive, and inhospitable and drives people away from visiting the United States. Americans and visitors deserve a system that works.

 

Americans will benefit from a fairer, more secure, more efficient system, which will ensure that foreign visitors, students, workers and job-creators alike provide as many positive benefits as possible to our economy and society.

 

We want legal visitors for our tourist attractions to increase the number of American jobs.

 

We want the best legal students in our universities and colleges, and then staying to create American jobs.

 

We want legal businessmen and businesswomen visiting the United States easily and comfortably so they can do more business in the United States and create more American jobs.

 

We want potential investors and entrepreneurs to visit America easily so they can create American jobs.

 

Finally, we want family members to find it easy to visit legally for holidays and family events to strengthen the human bonds that we Americans cherish.

 

At the same time, it is currently too difficult to deport criminals and gang members.

 

When someone is here illegally and is dangerous, there should be expedited procedures to remove them from the United States as rapidly as possible.

 

We can apply modern management techniques to create a more accurate, more secure, less expensive, and more hospitable visa system.

 

Combining border control with visa modernization makes it harder to be illegal and easier to be legal and that is a big step forward for America.

 

Point Five of a Gingrich Administration Executive Order is relevant to enforcing the rule of law against illegal immigrants/aliens.

 

5. End the Attorney General’s Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary.

 

At this point demonstrates as President he will initiate stringent border control along Mexico while hinting at some sort of examination to divide long term hard working illegal aliens from illegal alien committers of violent or drug crimes. In Gingrich’s recent debate he gets a bit more specific about illegal aliens that show a bit of compassion that Conservatives are questioning and Leftists are mistrusting. Andrea Tantaros wrote an article about Newt on Thursday. Here is a quote:

 

Immigration has always been a hot-button issue for both sides of the aisle, and in the 2012 presidential election, things are not going to be different. That’s why former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is making headlines for advocating for a more “humane” approach for dealing with the roughly 11 million illegal aliens in this country.

 

Gingrich, who is rising in most polls, endorsed a version of amnesty that would grant long-term undocumented aliens a “red card” visa, allowing them to gain legal status without earning U.S. citizenship.

 

“If you’ve been here 25 years and you got three kids and two grandkids, you’ve been paying taxes and obeying the law, you belong to a local church, I don’t think we’re going to separate you from your family, uproot you forcefully and kick you out,” he argued.

 

“I don’t see how the party that says it’s the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter century.”

 

He also backed certain provisions of the DREAM Act, which would award a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants who serve our country in the armed forces or attend college and have a spotless background.

 

I am like most Conservatives when images like this come to mind

 

Low income American citizens have to jump through hoops of paper work to get food stamps and often discover they make a few thousand more a year that disqualifies the American citizen from food stamps. A Spanish only-speaking illegal alien applies for food stamps without paperwork and gets food stamps.

 

An illegal alien is involved in a car accident and is at fault and without insurance. The undocumented illegal will not be ticketed and the victim will have to use her insurance to pay for repairs.

 

An illegal alien is pulled over for driving under the influence and has no driver’s license. Chances are the illegal alien will be let go and if he is arrested the few days he spends in jail are meaningless because what the heck – the illegal alien just keeps drinking and driving.

 

Illegal aliens have undocumented children residing with them in America. These children are non-citizens yet are afforded the American citizen right to attend public school and worse will get a free breakfast and a free lunch. The low income American citizen that does not qualify for a free lunch will have to pay for a school lunch. Further the illegal alien children have medical issues and the taxpayers pick up the tab. And I am not just talking about visits to the Emergency Room. Undocumented illegal aliens get regular doctor appointments to maintain their health. American citizen children without insurance do not get regular doctor visits because it cost money even with insurance. If an American citizen goes to an Emergency Room as the only access for a medical emergency and has no insurance, the American citizen will receive a hefty bill in the mail followed by debt collection calls because the medical was not affordable. Then there are American citizens that are on Medicare and pay for their supplement insurance to get a better deal than just Medicare and to get their meds, yet an undocumented illegal alien will get medical care and meds scot free because the government and the medical professionals know they won’t get paid.

 

Now this is just a small example of what irks me about illegal aliens. I am sure someone could tell loads of more stories how there is no justice for American citizens vis-a-vis illegal aliens. This is not mentioning crimes of drugs, gangs, theft, rape and so on.

 

Then there is the side of the coin that Newt is probably thinking of. I worked many years in the restaurant industry and when I left my small home town for the big city a significant amount of the restaurant staff were of Latin American origin (and not necessarily all Mexican). I have to tell ya most of these guys were undocumented. And I have to tell ya 99% of these guys were hard working. In fact they saved or sent portions of their pay check to Mexico. Sometimes they would disappear for awhile and visit family back in Mexico and come back to work for what we would call peanuts but their families back in Mexico would a good provision.

 

I am with Newt on immigration. It should become easier for Mexicans to enter legally to work a job and thus be taxed thus making them taxpayers. At the same time I believe the border with Mexico should become an Iron Curtain because of the ruthless reign of drug cartels just south of border. The drug cartel pestilence in Mexico is spilling into America’s border States like Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California (though I get the impression Californians have their heads in the sand when it comes to drug cartel violence).

 

Be sure to read the entire Tantaros article about Newt Gingrich’s stand on illegal aliens. I enjoyed I think you will as well.

ICE Provides Pocket Amnesty for Illegal Aliens


Morton Memos

Read the John Morton memo written as a matter to prioritize enforce of the law relating to illegal aliens in America:

 

In light of the large number of administrative violations the agency is charged with addressing and the limited enforcement resources the agency has available, ICE must prioritize the use of its enforcement personnel, detention space, and removal resources to ensure that the removals the agency does conduct promote the agency’s highest enforcement priorities, namely national security, public safety, and border security. (Reading the Morton Memo: Federal Priorities and Prosecutorial Discretion; By Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia; Immigration Policy Center; December 2010; Introduction)

 

For Liberals the Morton Memo enables Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to demonstrate mercy in deporting illegal aliens if they sneaked in and managed to hang around for awhile, produce some anchor babies and/or hang around aliens that have become citizens via the legal path or have legal resident documentation. Thus ICE is to concentrate on illegal aliens that have demonstrated the action of violent crimes. That sounds all altruistic, warm and fuzzy – right?

 

For Conservatives the Morton Memo is an open door with a sign that might say – “Welcome to America all ye illegal aliens” that desire to flood the American system of government with taxpayer supported free education, medicine and welfare. AND if you happen to break a minor law such as speeding or driving without insurance or working illegally while not paying the same taxes American citizens pay you get a pass because Liberals thinking altruistically wants to make sure the illegal undocumented crowd is well taken care of. After all Hispanic-Americans are the largest growing segment of Americans that prefer another culture rather than the culture handed down by America’s Founding Fathers.

 

What happened to American cultural solidarity with E Pluribus Unum – Out of the many, ONE?

 

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has a post explaining the reasons why the Morton Memos are bad immigration policy.
